"Rosalynn and I are saddened by the passing of former First Lady Nancy Reagan. She will always be admired for her strength of conviction and her lifelong devotion to her husband.
Her "just say no" campaign prevented many young people from falling prey to the allure of drug use; and her advocacy for stem cell research raised public awareness and influenced decision makers about vital research for Alzheimer's disease. We extend our condolences to her family at this difficult time."
- Former President Jimmy Carter
"Elaine and I join the nation in mourning the loss of Nancy Reagan. In many ways the Reagan love story was classic Hollywood, but it was unmistakably human too. Hands intertwined, Nancy and Ron rose to the pinnacle of political power, weathered cancer and personal heartbreak, and braved the depths of Alzheimer's cold embrace -- always together."
- Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell
"Hillary and I were deeply saddened to learn of Nancy Reagan’s passing.
Nancy was an extraordinary woman: a gracious First Lady, proud mother, and devoted wife to President Reagan—her Ronnie. Her strength of character was legendary, particularly when tested by the attempted assassination of the President, and throughout his battle with Alzheimer's. She leaves a remarkable legacy of good that includes her tireless advocacy for Alzheimer’s research and the Foster Grandparent Program."
- Former President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton
“With the passing of former first lady Nancy Reagan, our nation lost a beloved and inspirational figure. She was a woman of strength who devoted her life to her country, to her family, and to public service. My condolences to the entire Reagan family in this difficult time. She will be sorely missed.”
- Sen. John Thune (R-S.D.)
"I join millions of Americans today in mourning the passing of former First Lady Nancy Reagan. Mrs. Reagan understood the enormous responsibility that comes with representing our nation from the White House on the world stage, and she was beloved by the American people for her grace and dignity in that role."
- DNC Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz
