McConnell Remembers C. Boyden Gray

WASHINGTON, D.C.U.S. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) issued the following statement on Ambassador C. Boyden Gray:

“Elaine and I were saddened to learn of the passing this weekend of a friend and distinguished public servant, C. Boyden Gray.

“Over a legal career that spanned half a century, Boyden Gray developed a well-deserved reputation for mastery of complex regulatory issues and relish for worthwhile fights. His service to consecutive Republican presidents was marked by unquestionable loyalty, tireless work ethic, and devotion to timeless conservative principles.

“Entwined in Boyden Gray’s legacy as the consummate executive branch counselor is his work to cultivate generations of bright jurists committed to the Constitution and the rule of law. Our nation’s federal courts are stronger for his unflagging support of outstanding judicial nominees like Justice Clarence Thomas.

“Today, our deepest condolences are with Boyden Gray’s daughter, Eliza, their family, and the many friends who mourn his loss.”
