“As a former professional athlete, Ed King was a fierce competitor when he served as Governor, and he was a champion of working families throughout his career.  He served our state, its people, and its business community ably over parts of the last five decades.  His dedication to public service was deep and unwavering.  My thoughts and prayers are with his family during this difficult time.”
