Brian Dodge, president of the Retail Industry Leaders Association (RILA), the trade association for America’s leading retailers, issued the following statement honoring former Sen. Mike Enzi’s (R-Wyo.) life and service:
“The retail community mourns the passing of Senator Mike Enzi, a retailer at heart who took his life experience from Main Street to Washington, and never forgot his roots. While Senator Enzi was unmistakably a conservative, retailers fondly remember his passion working across the aisle on issues impacting the retail industry. He was a humble, gracious, and tireless champion, and we mourn with his family, staff, and the state of Wyoming on his passing.”
