Press Release

Washington, D.C. — Rep. Matt Salmon (AZ-05) today released the following statement in commemoration of the life of Nancy Reagan.

“This weekend, the world was saddened by news that Mrs. Nancy Reagan, former First Lady of the United States, passed away.  As first lady of both California and America, Mrs. Reagan advanced an agenda that advocated for the most vulnerable in our society.  Her ‘Just Say No’ program not only raised awareness of the scourge of drug abuse, but actively helped young people by giving them a way to fight peer pressure.

“Mrs. Reagan’s battle against breast cancer made her a symbol of strength and resilience, while still exemplifying the grace and poise our nation had always known.  Her dedication, commitment, and passion for her family, and our country, will never be forgotten. My prayers are with the Reagan family, and may God grant Mrs. Nancy Reagan eternal rest.”

Rep. Matt Salmon (AZ-05) serves on the House Committee on Foreign Affairs as Chairman of the Subcommittee on Asia and the Pacific. He is also a member of the House Committee on Education and the Workforce.
