PSA Mourns Passing of Co-founder and Advisory Board Co-chair Senator Warren Rudman

WASHINGTON – Partnership for a Secure America mourns the loss of U.S. Senator Warren Rudman (R-NH), who passed away Monday night. In 2005, Rudman co-founded PSA with U.S. Representative Lee Hamilton (D-IN) to advance bipartisanship on today’s critical national security and foreign policy challenges. He was Co-chair of PSA’s Advisory Board.

Serving two terms in the U.S. Senate, Rudman was a member of the Senate Select Committee investigating arms transfers to Iran, as well as the Senate Appropriations, Intelligence, Governmental Affairs, and Ethics Committees, and the Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations. Beyond his Senate career, he continued to serve the public interest as Chairman of the President’s Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board during the Clinton Administration and Co-Chair of the U.S. Commission on National Security. Rudman was committed to the pursuit of sound national policy and, as such, played key roles at the Concord Coalition, Council on Foreign Relations, the Aspen Institute, and the Brookings Institution.

“By any measure, Warren Rudman was a great American. He dedicated his life and extraordinary talents to make this country a more perfect union. All Americans are indebted to him,” said Hamilton, PSA Advisory Board Co-chair.

PSA is honored to have worked with Senator Rudman and joins his family, friends, and colleagues celebrating his distinguished service to our nation.
