Ted Cruz, Lamar Alexander, Bob Corker, Marsha Blackburn: Mandela Will Live In History for Defenders of Liberty. He was a great man. Enormous loss ....

December 5, 2013, Ted Cruz Press Release, WASHINGTON, DC -- U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, reacted today to news of former South African President Nelson Mandela's passing:

Nelson Mandela will live in history as an inspiration for defenders of liberty around the globe. He stood firm for decades on the principle that until all South Africans enjoyed equal liberties he would not leave prison himself, declaring in his autobiography, 'Freedom is indivisible; the chains on any one of my people were the chains on all of them, the chains on all of my people were the chains on me.' Because of his epic fight against injustice, an entire nation is now free.

We mourn his loss and offer our condolences to his family and the people of South Africa.
