Former Sen. Richard Lugar (R-Ind.), a foreign policy expert who served in the upper chamber for more than 30 years, has died at the age of 87. The Lugar Center said in a statement that Lugar died early Sunday as a result of complications from chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy, a rare neurological disorder. Lugar spent the majority of his life in public service, serving as mayor of Indianapolis from 1968 to 1975 before serving in the Senate from 1977 to 2013. He originally ran for the Senate in 1974, losing to Indiana Sen. Birch Bayh (D). He ran again two years later and was elected to his first term.

He was indeed an honorable man, with a very finely tuned intelligence focused on international relations, from the minor correspondence I had with him.

He gave at that time real credence to the concept of "reaching across the aisle," as much of a joke as it has become now.

May he rest in peace.
