U.S. Senator Rob Portman (R-Ohio) today released the following statement on the death of Former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher:
"Today, we mourn the loss of a great friend of the United States and a true leader, Margaret Thatcher. She was a model to me in the way she put conservative ideals into action. She never backed down from confronting the false promises of communism and socialism head on, and she understood that free markets and limited government were the surest path to opportunity for all. She will be sorely missed, but her legacy lives on. May God bless Lady Thatcher and her family."
