MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar calls Nelson Mandela’s life “a powerful affirmation of the human spirit.”

The Minnesota Democrat issued a statement Thursday on the death of Mandela, saying “We lost a great man today.” The first black president of South Africa was 95.

Klobuchar says with his courage and compassion, Mandela not only changed South Africa, “he transformed the world.”

She urged people as they mourn his loss and reflect on his legacy to rededicate themselves to “the pursuit of justice, equality and peace.”
