Manchin Statement On the Death of Madeleine Albright

Washington, DC – Today, U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) released the following statement on the death of Dr. Madeleine Albright, former U.S. Secretary of State.

“Gayle and I are saddened to learn of the death of Madeleine Albright, former Secretary of State and longtime public servant. As a Senate staffer, National Security Council staff, Ambassador, and most notably as the first female Secretary of State under President Clinton – she embodied what public service should be. Secretary Albright broke glass ceilings and paved the way for generations of women. Her legacy continues on in the American women, girls and children who look to her and are inspired to by her leadership. Gayle and I join West Virginians in keeping Secretary Albright’s three daughters and all those who loved her in our prayers.”
