National Republican Congressional Committee Chairman Steve Stivers issued the following statement regarding the death of former House Republican Leader Bob Michel:
“Bob Michel was simply a giant in every sense of the word. The product of a humble Midwest beginning, Bob was first an Army infantryman, landing on the beaches of Normandy to defend our way of life in World War II. Once home, he soon came to Washington,” said NRCC Chairman Steve Stivers.
“Serving as NRCC Chairman and later, as House Minority Leader, Bob was a founding father of the era of Republican governance and the large majorities we see today. Bob’s life is truly a symbol of service that I aspire to. Karen and I send our deepest condolences to the entire Michel family.”
