STATEMENT OF U.S. SENATOR LAMAR ALEXANDER (R-TN) ON THE DEATH OF PRESIDENT GERALD FORD

Posted on December 27, 2006

"The Presidency sought Jerry Ford rather than his seeking the Presidency. He restored confidence in our government at a time when that was sorely needed. Honey and I have known him well since we first went to Washington 40 years ago. We will miss him and miss his leadership."
