'He was South Carolina': Biden on 'Fritz' Hollings

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Former Vice President Joe Biden eulogized the late South Carolina politician Ernest 'Fritz' Hollings at his funeral on Tuesday in Charleston, and said it was 'Fritz' who endorsed a young Biden for U.S. Senate, where they served together for decades.

Hollings, a sharp-tongued moderate Democrat with a booming voice and deep Southern drawl who advocated fiscal discipline in Washington during 38 years representing South Carolina in the U.S. Senate, died on April 6 at age 97.

Hollings was elected as South Carolina's governor at age 36, serving from 1959 to 1963, and then represented the state in the Senate from 1966 to 2005, retiring at age 83.

He unsuccessfully ran for the 1984 Democratic presidential nomination.

For all his accomplishments in office, the World War Two combat veteran may be best known for his folksy language and acerbic remarks, as well as for serving 36 years as his state's "junior senator" behind Strom Thurmond, the longest-serving senator in history who retired at age 100.

Hollings was a leading deficit hawk and also fought international free-trade pacts that he believed threatened American jobs.

He was passionate about alleviating hunger in America and was one of the authors of a nutrition program that provided food vouchers for the poor.
