CONCORD (AP) — President Barack Obama is calling former New Hampshire Sen. Warren Rudman “one of our country’s great public servants.”

Rudman died Monday at age 82 of complications from lymphoma in a Washington, D.C., hospital just before midnight.

Obama said Rudman was the “embodiment of Yankee sensibility and New England independence.” He noted that Rudman — a Republican — was an early advocate for fiscal responsibility and worked with Republicans and Democrats to call attention to the nation’s growing deficit.

Obama said as Congress works to resolve today’s fiscal challenges, leaders on both sides of the aisle would be well served to follow Rudman’s example of common-sense bipartisanship.
