Washington, DC – DNC Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz released the following statement on the passing of labor leader Larry Scanlon:

“I was shocked and saddened to learn of the untimely passing of Larry Scanlon. As the longtime political director of AFSCME, Larry was a dedicated advocate for America's working families. He truly believed that everyone deserved a fair shot, and devoted his life's work to ensuring that our neighbors who are often overlooked would have a voice to represent them. On behalf of Democrats across the country, I extend our thoughts and prayers to the Scanlon family and the entire labor community on their loss.”
