Sen. Cruz Issues Statement on the Passing of Walter E. Williams

‘His legacy will endure on as we continue to fight for liberty’

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) today issued the following statement on the passing of acclaimed economist and author Walter Williams:

“Walter Williams lived a legendary life and he will be sorely missed. Born in the projects of Philadelphia to a single mother of two, Walter went on to achieve the American dream as a brilliant economist, accomplished professor, and profound author. As a teenager, I frequently read his work and was moved by his fierce defense of free markets and the virtues of liberty. Heidi and I are lifting up in prayer his family and loved ones. His legacy will endure as we continue to fight for liberty.”
