Heritage Foundation says he died at 1:18 this morning.
Passed on the 4th of July.
One of the last of the true conservatives, and one of those rare politicians whose promises you could trust. RIP Senator Helms. There are few men like you remaining in today’s world of capitulation and corruption.
“Passed on the 4th of July.”
The was m;y first thought, too. Totally fitting. Both Jefferson and John Adams also died on the Fourth ... fifty years after the signing of the Declaration.
My favorite thing Jesse did, or tried to do, was in the early-mid 80’s, suggesting a buyout or takover of CBS to get some conservative perspective in the media. Wonderful he lived to see cable and internet give the MSM a run for its money.
How fitting for a great patriot ! He passed on the same day as Jefferson and Adams.
How fitting! Like John Adams and Thomas Jefferson.
I thought of that, and then “Free at Last” came to mind.
