A resolution honoring the life of former U.S. Senator and three-time presidential candidate George McGovern has unanimously passed the Senate.

U.S. Senator Tim Johnson introduced the resolution honoring McGovern on Friday and it passed. McGovern died last month in Sioux Falls at the age of 90.

Johnson says Republicans and Democrats joined together to remember the South Dakota native. He says people miss McGovern but are thankful for the work he did to make the country a better place.
