Led by U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann, members of Minnesota's congressional delegation honored former congressman and U.S. senator Rod Grams on the House floor Thursday. Grams died at his rural Minnesota home Tuesday after a long battle with colon cancer. He was 65.
Grams, a former KMSP-TV anchor, served a single term each in the House and Senate during the 1990s.
Thursday's tribute to Grams included a moment of silence.
"With his keen eye and long-term vision, Minnesotans had a dedicated advocate here in the halls of Congress," Bachmann said.
