On Wednesday, Sen. Barbara Mikulski delivered her final remarks on the Senate floor, talking about her 45 years in elected public office and thanking her staff, constituents, and the people of Maryland.

"I want to rise today to thank the people of Maryland," she said. "I want to rise to thank them for their vote of confidence. When people vote for you, it's not only that they're sending you to Washington or sending you to City Hall. They're giving you a vote of confidence that you will be their voice, that you will be their vote, that you will be at their side and on their side."
