Montana Democratic Party Marks the Death of Congressman John Lewis
In response to the tragic news of Congressman John Lewis’s death, MDP Chair Robyn Driscoll issued the following statement:

“Congressman John Lewis was a true legend in every sense of the word. A fearless champion for civil rights and equality, he risked his life many times over to make this country a more equal nation for all. Each of us is better for John Lewis’s courageous sacrifices – and now, it’s our responsibility to carry on his legacy and continue to fight for a more perfect union.”

“Our country has come a long way since Congressman Lewis stood bravely on the Edmund Pettus Bridge 55 years ago, but we have far more to do. Let John Lewis’s memory remind us to remain steadfast in our pursuit of justice, and never shy away from causing good trouble. He will be dearly missed.”
