Rep. David Scott (Georgia)

 “There’s no one who personified the significance of Africa in this Congress as Payne did. And he had great courage to go where the need was greatest, even Somalia, at the risk of his life. When we measure him we really have got to measure him not only for what he did for African-Americans and the people of New Jersey, but how reached out all across the world.”
