WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Senator Thom Tillis (R-NC) issued the following statement on the passing of former President George H. W. Bush:

“George H.W. Bush will be long remembered for dedicating his life to protecting and bettering the country he loved, from his heroic service as a Navy pilot during WWII, to his steady leadership as President, playing a pivotal role to end the Cold War.


“He always made the tough decisions and put the nation’s interests first. A true testament to his character was his ability to befriend his old political rivals, a reminder that despite our differences, more unites the American people, including its leaders, than divides us.


“Susan and I send our condolences to the Bush family and join the rest of the nation in honoring a great American.”
