RJC Statement on Barbara Bush

Washington, D.C. -- Today, the Republican Jewish Coalition issued the following statement from National Chairman Senator Norm Coleman:

We are saddened by the passing of former First Lady Barbara Bush. On behalf of the Republican Jewish Coalition, we send our thoughts and prayers to President George H.W. Bush, President George W. Bush, and the entire Bush family. Barbara Bush was an extraordinary woman. She dedicated her life to public service, and worked tirelessly to help sick children and people in need. Mrs. Bush was the gold standard for what it means to be First Lady. She inspired millions and helped countless others. She will be deeply missed, but her legacy of charity will live on. May her memory be a blessing.
