Former Alaska Senator Ted Stevens lost his life in a plane crash in his home state Monday night. Nebraska U.S. Senator Ben Nelson says he and Stevens had become very close.
“I’m gonna miss him a lot, as a matter of fact, i’m on my way to Alaska this weekend and I was hoping to see him while their. I’ll also remember him as a good friend and somebody when something was going one direction or another he always had something positive to say.”
Nelson says he had frequently traveled with Stevens on Trade and Military missions.
