RNC Father’s Day Message

WASHINGTON – Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus and Co-Chairman Sharon Day released the following Father’s Day message:

“Today we celebrate our fathers and the love and guidance that they have given us through our lives. Dads, step-dads, and grandfathers make sacrifices everyday for the ones they love, and today we give back and honor them for their dedication to their families,” said Chairman Priebus.
 
“In saluting America’s fathers, I especially think of my own father, who taught me the value of hard work, integrity, and character. As I seek to model these virtues in the lives of my own children, I am reminded of the dynamic role that fathers play in today’s society. Whether they are breadwinners at work, stay-at-home dads, or adopted parents, our fathers are a great source of inspiration and strength.
 
“Our thoughts and prayers are with all fathers everywhere, especially those serving our country overseas. We remember them and their families as they fight to secure a better country for our children and the next generation.”
 
“As we celebrate this Father’s Day, we hold dear to our heart our fathers—those that may be with us and those that are now a precious memory,” said Co-Chairman Day. “We thank them for the lessons that they taught us, the laughter they shared, the guidance they gave us as we moved through life, and their encouragement to be a better person—with not only their words, but also their deeds. 
 
“Our fathers’ love and their memories live on forever in each of us on this Father’s Day and every day.”
