This morning we learned of the loss of a remarkable man. It is hard to imagine conservatives gathering in Washington without Paul Weyrich in our midst. Mike Franc’s admiration for Paul’s unswavering commitment to principle is widely shared. Without fear or favor, Paul could be counted on to fight for what he believed in. He confronted his physical challenges in recent years with the same grace and courage he brought to all of our struggles over the years. Paul was deeply committed to his faith, his family, and his country. His life should be an example to the countless conservatives he inspired and encouraged. RIP.
