“I was saddened to learn of the death of former President George H.W. Bush. He led our nation through some of the most significant global changes in the modern era, not only as the 41st President, but also through his service as Vice President, Director of the CIA, top U.S. envoy to China, Ambassador to the U.N., U.S. Representative from Texas, and as a naval aviator during World War II.
 
“The world has lost an esteemed statesman, decorated Navy pilot, and accomplished public servant. He will forever be remembered for his service and the impeccable legacy he left behind.
 
“My wife Vivian and I, along with the people of Georgia’s 2nd Congressional District and Americans everywhere, extend our most heartfelt condolences to the Bush family during this difficult time.”
