Chairman Joe Nosef on the Passing of Nancy Reagan


JACKSON, MS – Governor Phil Bryant and Mississippi Republican Party (MSGOP) Chairman Joe Nosef released the following statement on the passing of former First Lady Nancy Reagan:

Governor Phil Bryant: “Today, America lost a great lady. Nancy Reagan was the perfect example of charm and caring that embodies the term ‘First Lady.’ Nancy and Ronald Reagan were an American love story that has never ended. The President would be the first to say his success was because of Nancy. I understand that sentiment in a very personal way. Deborah and I are children of the Reagan Revolution and realize It may have never happened without the gentle sprit and devotion of Nancy. She now is, once again, with her beloved Ronnie. I am sure they are walking the streets of Glory, hand in hand.”

MSGOP Chairman Joe Nosef: “Our country has lost one of its finest in the passing of Nancy Reagan. She was the epitome of grace and dignity, and embodied a sense of poise and strength as First Lady of the United States. Mrs. Reagan will always be remembered for her service to our country, and her loyal devotion to her husband and our President. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Reagan family.”
