Today, Congressman Matt Salmon (AZ-05) released the following statement concerning the passing of former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.
"My heart goes out to our friends in Great Britain, and the family of former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher this morning.
With a will of iron, she never wavered in her commitment to free market and conservative values, fought tirelessly for limited government, and was a force for good during a difficult period in our world's history.
A great friend to the United States who helped solidify our Trans-Atlantic partnership, Thatcher exemplified strength, compassion and sheer determination throughout her public service career. She will be missed, but her legacy will continue to influence and inspire generations for years to come.
Let us always remember the words of Prime Minister Thatcher when she so eloquently said, "I am in politics because of the conflict between good and evil, and I believe that in the end good will triumph.'"
