Press Release

Washington, D.C. – Congressman Ted S. Yoho (R-FL) released the following statement on the passing of Rep. John Lewis (D-GA):

“Last night America lost a true giant. John Lewis was not only a hero in the civil rights movement, he was also one of the kindest, most noble souls I’ve ever had the pleasure to know. He was a pillar of humility and moral courage throughout his long life of service. History will never forget how he stood against the forces of racism and bigotry and how he countered those forces with love, hope, and an affection for his fellow man. May God bless the life of John Lewis and continue to bless his family during this difficult time.”
