U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) today released the following statement on the death of Margaret Thatcher, the former prime minister of Britain:

"Margaret Thatcher was conservative, principled and charismatic. She also knew how to turn her principles into results that strengthened Great Britain. She was the British version of Ronald Reagan, or perhaps he was the American version of her."

Alexander's time as governor of Tennessee, from 1979 to 1987, overlapped with Thatcher's tenure as prime minister.
