WASHINGTON, DC — U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) today released the following statement regarding the passing of former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher:

Today the world mourns the loss of an extraordinary leader, the great Margaret Thatcher.

Utterly fearless, she never would go wobbly. Rejecting the failures of socialism, she won the argument for liberty, and her name is synonymous with the policies that restored peace, prosperity, growth, and stability at a time when it seemed like the United Kingdom had none.

It was truly a Providential blessing that she served alongside President Ronald Reagan and Pope John Paul II -- together the three of them stood unshakable, defended humanity, and won the Cold War without firing a shot. Her magnificent intellect and unwavering work ethic helped her ascend to become Britain's first and only female prime minister; it wasn't a matter of breaking through the glass ceiling, but simply refusing to acknowledge its existence.

Lady Thatcher was one of kind, and the world will forever be in her debt. Long live the memory of our dearly departed Iron Lady.
