RNC Statement Celebrating Thanksgiving
WASHINGTON – Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus and RNC Co-Chair Sharon Day released the following statement celebrating Thanksgiving.
“As we gather today to celebrate with loved ones and reflect on our blessings, I want to wish all Americans a Happy Thanksgiving,” said RNC Chairman Reince Priebus.
“We thank God for the blessings of living in America–the blessings of liberty–and for the love of family and friends. From the Pilgrims to the present, we have always found cause to give thanks, in the words of President Lincoln, ‘solemnly, reverently and gratefully.’”
“We should also be mindful of those who are in need today,” said RNC Co-Chair Sharon Day. “Far too many of our fellow Americans are struggling to find work, to make ends meet or to put food on the table. Thanksgiving is also a reminder to lend a helping hand of compassion.”
“May God bless all our families this Thanksgiving and continue to bless America each and every day.”
