Tributes for former Sen. Bob Dole poured in from presidents, lawmakers of both parties, veterans and other admirers after the war hero and longtime Republican statesman died Sunday at age 98.

President Biden, who served in the Senate with Mr. Dole for 23 years, praised the late Kansas Republican for “his legacy of decency, dignity, good humor, and patriotism for all time.” He said they often disagreed in the Senate but maintained a friendship into Mr. Biden’s presidency.

“To me, he was also a friend whom I could look to for trusted guidance, or a humorous line at just the right moment to settle frayed nerves. I will miss my friend,” Mr. Biden said.

“He served the great state of Kansas with honor and the Republican Party was made stronger by his service,” Mr. Trump said. “Our nation mourns his passing, and our prayers are with Elizabeth and his wonderful family.”

Former President Barack Obama said Mr. Dole had “a career and demeanor harkening back to a day when members of the greatest generation abided by a certain code, putting country over party.”
