Congressman Stenholm Comments On Reagan Funeral Procession

Among those in attendance for President Reagan's arrival in the rotunda at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C. was U.S. Representative Charlie Stenholm.

Earlier Wednesday night the Texas Congressman shared his thoughts on Wednesday's ceremony. "The reaction that I had standing there in the rotunda tonight and watching a very moving, but fitting ceremony for a president that did change the direction of America and I have to say the Reagan revolution put my party in the minority. He was a great leader for his party. He was a great leader for the country," said Stenholm.

Stenholm went on to add that, "You couldn't help but respect President Reagan even when you differed."
