WASHINGTON – Top House Appropriations Republican Kay Granger (R-TX) released the following statement on the passing of Representative Ron Wright (R-TX). 

“America has lost a great Texas statesman, and I have lost a cherished friend. Ron Wright was a man of quiet strength and down-to-earth inspiration.

“Few of us have been tested the way Ron had. I saw firsthand the courage and optimism he showed in his fight against lung cancer. All of us, though, can aspire to his commitment to always put the greater good above our own. Amid his long cancer treatment and Coronavirus, he never wavered in his fight to lower drug costs and foster medical innovation for all Americans. He was an ardent champion of the values of our great home state and a reliable partner in advancing the interests of our beloved North Texas.  

“I ask that you join me in praying for his family. Let us continue each day to be inspired by his optimistic example.”
