Sen. Luther Olsen: "We are here because we made the tough decisions. But they were the right decisions ... What is right, isn't always popular, but what is popular isn't always right. And I believe we stood up and made the right decision. And I would do it again."
As for Fred Clark, moderation was the message.
Clark: "Quite honestly Sen. Olsen, you were among the senators who many hoped would be that moderate compromising influence, that could have found a path forward out of a historic conflict."
