Statement of Governor Haley Barbour
On the Passing of Former Mississippi Congressman G.V. “Sonny” Montgomery


Sonny was a giant among congressmen in Mississippi history. The good he did for veterans is a national accomplishment and he accomplished so much in so many areas that all Mississippians are grateful for his service and leadership. As a conservative Democrat he was an indispensable ally of Presidents like Ronald Reagan and his longtime personal friend George H. W. Bush. We will miss him very much.
