D.C. Delegate Eleanor Holmes-Norton remembers the man known as Lion of the Senate as a tireless advocate for equality.
Norton says that Ted Kennedy was as close to irreplaceable as you can get. And she says - in particular -- he was a champion for Washingtonians. Though he technically represented Massachusetts -- she calls him Washington's Senator.
Norton says Kennedy was a strong supporter of DC Voting rights. And she says she often went to him for guidance in legislative matters. She said she will miss his accessibility and candor.
Norton says she hopes Kennedy's memory will inspire work to come.
