May 20, 2008: Kennedy has malignant brain tumor (Politico)

  • Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.), who won Kennedy's endorsement earlier this year, issued a statement in which he said: "Michelle and I were saddened to hear the news about Sen. Kennedy's condition today, and we plan on doing whatever we can to support him, Vicki, and the entire Kennedy family during this time. Sen. Kennedy has been a fighter for his entire life, and I have no doubt that he will fight as hard as he can to get through this. He has been there for the American people during some of our country's most trying moments, and now that he's facing his own, I ask all Americans to keep him in our thoughts and prayers."
