SC Congressional Delegation Reacts to Death of Queen Elizabeth II

Daniel Prince

Norman, Graham, and Scott pay tribute to the long-serving monarch

The passing of Queen Elizabeth II was the big international news story of the day yesterday. South Carolina’s Congressional delegation issued individual statements honoring her life and legacy.
Rep. Ralph Norman wrote, "My prayers go out to the Royal Family and all of those in the U.K. and the Commonwealth who are mourning the loss of Queen Elizabeth II. May her life and legacy as one of the most symbolic historical figures never be forgotten."

Sen. Tim Scott wrote, "I am saddened to hear of the passing of Queen Elizabeth II, and my prayers go out to the Windsor family and all the people of the United Kingdom who are mourning her death. As the longest serving British monarch, her seven decades of steadfast leadership and commitment to building strong relationships with American leaders will be pillars of her larger-than-life legacy."

Sen. Lindsey Graham wrote, “When she was 21 years old, the Queen famously said: ‘I declare before you all that my whole life whether it be long or short shall be devoted to your service and the service of our great imperial family to which we all belong.’ As it turned out, she was blessed with a long life and kept her word to faithfully serve her people. As a woman of strong faith, she is now in the hands of a loving God. When it comes to Queen Elizabeth II, the combination of longevity, impeccable character, and incredible leadership over seven decades of war and peace is likely never to be seen again. Well done, Your Majesty – Rest in Peace.”
