State Rep. David Leland (D-Columbus) issued a statement in response to the death today of Ohio astronaut and U.S. Sen. John Glenn. Glenn, 95, was the first American to orbit the earth and later had a successful 25-year span of service as a U.S. Senator from Ohio.


 “John Glenn was the ultimate All-American, All-American military pilot, All-American space pioneer, All-American public servant. 


“John Glenn embodied the best of America in every aspect of his life. My prayer for America is that we are able to produce many more public servants like John Glenn.”
