CONCORD (AP) — Retired U.S. Supreme Court Justice David Souter says New Hampshire Sen. Warren Rudman was like a brother to him.

Souter also said Tuesday that he was incomparably lucky to have a friend like Rudman, who died Monday at age 82 of complications from lymphoma. He said Rudman stood for what the founders of the American republic staked its future on.

Rudman wrote in a book about Souter, his longtime friend and former deputy in the state attorney general’s officer.

He wrote that the private Souter appeared ready to walk away from the nomination because he was being portrayed as odd because he was 50, single and lived in a little farmhouse crammed with books.

Rudman said he talked to him for five hours and Souter decided to push on.
