Indiana Governor Mike Pence today issued a statement regarding the death of former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.
"Today, we mourn the loss of Margaret Thatcher, a dynamic leader who devoted her career to advancing economic freedom and individual liberty. At a time when the world needed bold vision and principled leadership, she inspired a generation to confront economic malaise and threats to freedom everywhere. Her passion and vision helped reshape the course of history and helped end the Cold War.
Along with millions of Hoosiers, the First Lady and I extend our utmost gratitude for Margaret Thatcher's work, and, during this difficult time, we offer our prayers and deepest condolences to her family, friends and all those she held dear."
A spokesperson for the Thatcher family said the 87-year-old baroness died peacefully this morning after suffering a stroke. Thatcher was Great Britain's first female prime minister.
