Washington, D.C. – Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA-05), Vice Chair of the House Republican Conference, released the following statement in remembrance of President Ronald Regan’s 100th birthday.

"While we wouldn't know it for over 70 years, on February 6, 1911 – 100 years ago today – our nation was blessed with a leader who would do more to keep freedom and opportunity alive in America, and expand both in an often dangerous world, than any other leader of my lifetime – our 40th President, Ronald Wilson Reagan. As someone who's lived the American Dream, I am grateful to President Reagan for all he did to revitalize our economy, preserve American values, and bring the Cold War to a peaceful end. May we never forget his inspiring, courageous, and compassionate leadership."
