Clintons Remember McGovern For Anti-Hunger Efforts

Clintons Remember McGovern For Anti-Hunger Efforts
George McGovern | May 2012

NEW YORK -

Former President Bill Clinton and his wife, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, say they are saddened by the passing of former presidential candidate and Sen. George McGovern.

McGovern died early Sunday in South Dakota. He ran for president in 1972, losing to President Richard Nixon.

The Clintons say in a statement that they met McGovern while campaigning for him in 1972 and their friendship endured for 40 years.

They say McGovern was "a tireless advocate for human rights and dignity" but of "all his passions, he was most committed to feeding the hungry, at home and around the world."

McGovern, a Democrat, collaborated with former Republican Sen. Bob Dole to create an international food for education and child nutrition program, for which they shared the 2008 World Food Prize.
