GOP senators mourned the loss of Republican Wyoming Sen. Mike Enzi in several statements Tuesday, following Enzi’s sudden death.

Enzi suffered serious injuries during a bicycle accident in his hometown of Gillette, Wyoming, and died in a Colorado hospital Monday night, as previously reported.

Republican Sen. John Kennedy commemorated Enzi’s legacy in a Tuesday statement, calling him a “principled leader for the people of Wyoming and America and a dear friend to me.”

“He was an example of thoughtful kindness to everyone in the Senate,” Kennedy said. “Becky and I are going to miss him, and our hearts break for the Enzi family.”

Republican Texas Sen. Ted Cruz “lifted up his prayers” for the Enzi family, remembering his dedication to “bettering the lives” for the people of Wyoming. (RELATED: Former Senator Mike Enzi Dies After Tragic Bike Accident)
