On the third Monday in February, Americans celebrate Presidents’ Day. This national holiday began as a commemoration of the birthdays of the first president, George Washington, and the sixteenth president, Abraham Lincoln.
Today, the Republican Party of New Mexico remembers these two great presidents. President Washington laid the foundation of our constitutional republic, and President Lincoln historically fought for civil rights.
These patriots led our nation through great victories and boldly defended our American values of liberty and freedom. As we reflect on their legacies today, may their courage inspire us to defend our conservative values and protect all Americans’ God-given rights.
