LANSING - Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel released the following statement on the passing of former U.S. Senator Carl Levin: 

"The world lost a giant today, and I lost a personal hero. Senator Levin's decades-long dedication to representing the people of Michigan set a bar few elected officials will ever meet. His no-nonsense, brutally honest approach to politics is what gained him respect across the aisle. I greatly admired his unwavering commitment to doing what was right - even if it wasn't easy - and his passionate approach to understanding every single issue he voted on. We all could learn a great deal from his service. My thoughts are with his loved ones. There will never be another Carl Levin."
