Statement by President and Secretary Clinton on the Passing of Chuck Manatt

"Hillary and I are deeply saddened by the passing of Chuck Manatt. We were friends for 30 years, and saw firsthand how he used his energy, intellect, and common sense to help restore the Democratic Party after 1980, to make America more prosperous and just, and to make friends for our nation around the world. I was proud of his service as ambassador to the Dominican Republic during my second term and Hillary and I will always be grateful for his support and friendship. Our thoughts and prayers are with Kathy, Michele, Timothy, Daniel, and his grandchildren."
