Nancy Reagan Said Ronnie Passed The Tourch To Newt

Nancy Reagan gave a speech to the 1995 Goldwater Institute Dinner honoring President Ronald Reagan, and gave kudos to then Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich. Mrs. Reagan told the audience, “They believed that government should simply get out of the way. Ronnie and Barry fought for those principles, which, today, have been overwhelmingly embraced,” Reagan said. “So they must have done something right. Just take a look at the extraordinary men and women who make up the 104th Congress and of course its distinguished speaker, Newt Gingrich. The dramatic movement of 1995 is an outgrowth of a much earlier crusade that goes back half a century. Barry Goldwater handed the torch to Ronnie, and, in turn, Ronnie turned that torch over to Newt and the Republican members of Congress to keep that dream alive.”
