Schumer Statement On The Passing Of Secretary Of State Madeleine Albright

Washington, D.C.   Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) today released the following statement on the passing of former Secretary of State, Madeleine Albright:

“Madeleine Albright was one-of-a kind and first-of-a-kind. As a refugee who fled the Nazis and Soviet Communism, she embodied the American dream with her inspiring life story and long and distinguished career leading America’s foreign policy, eventually rising to become our country’s first female Secretary of State. While she may have been small in stature, she was a titan in American history and statecraft. Her brilliance, passionate patriotism, and sharp wit made her a formidable presence on the world stage and her story inspired women and girls across the globe. My thoughts are with Secretary Albright’s family as our nation pays deep gratitude for her years of service and remembers her life and legacy.”
