April 18, 2018
DNC Chair Tom Perez released the following statement after learning of the passing of former First Lady Barbara Bush:
“With the passing of Barbara Bush, America has lost a tireless public servant. From championing literacy to promoting awareness and destigmatization of AIDS, the former first lady put the values of inclusion and equality into action, and there’s no doubt that the world is a better place because of her invaluable service.
“With grace and compassion, Mrs. Bush brought her sense of humor and steady moral compass to the White House. She never ceased in her work to strengthen our nation.
“Our thoughts and prayers are with the entire Bush family as they mourn their loss and celebrate her legacy.”
