Reagan Statue to Be Unveiled in June

Congressional leaders announced late Monday that they will join former first lady Nancy Reagan for the unveiling of a statue of former President Ronald Reagan on June 3 in the Capitol Rotunda. All four top leaders from both sides of the Capitol — Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio), Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) — are expected to attend the event. The Reagan statue will become a part of the National Statuary Hall Collection, according to a news release from Pelosi’s office. The California state Assembly passed a resolution in 2006 that authorized swapping the statue of Thomas Starr King, a minister who helped keep California in the Union during the Civil War, out of the Capitol for the Reagan statue.
