Dec 01, 2018

Washington, D.C. – Congressman Frank Lucas (OK-3) mourns the loss of former President George H. W. Bush. Congressman Lucas released the following statement:

“The first time I met George W. H. Bush he was Vice President of the United State and in the early stages of his successful run for President in 1988. I noted that day, that though he was a man of wealth from a very old stabilized east coast family, he wore a simple Timex watch and doodled patterns with a pencil on a piece of paper as he discussed every possible issue that could matter to a group of Oklahomans. I left that meeting impressed with him as a person and a knowledgeable leader.”
