McCain on Ford

 

Washington D.C. ­– U.S. Senator John McCain (R-AZ) today released the following statement on the death of President Gerald Ford:

“Cindy and I share the sadness of millions of Americans who mourn the passing of President Gerald Ford, and offer our deepest sympathies to his wife, Betty, and the Ford family.

“A man of great moral character and patriotism, he led our country during a time of great distress, and saw us safely through our troubles with grace and courage. In one of the most generous and selfless acts by a political leader in modern times, he sacrificed his own ambitions to help move our country beyond the divisions and disillusionment caused by Watergate and a lost war, and restore our trust in our governing institutions.

“In war and peace, he served America faithfully and well, and will be remembered as the good man to whom this nation turned in a difficult hour, and who did not let us down.”

The Beatification of Beto
