Virginia Governor-elect Terry McAuliffe released the following statement in response to the passing of former President of South Africa Nelson Mandela:

“I was deeply saddened to learn that the world has lost a giant in the enduring fight for justice and human rights with the passing of President Nelson Mandela.  His service and sacrifice to the cause of equality in South Africa helped end the institution of apartheid in that nation and showed the world what we can achieve if we work for progress together.

“Dorothy and I are praying for the Mandela family, the people of South Africa and all of those who are mourning his passing. There will never be another Nelson Mandela, but his spirit and his cause will live on in the men and women whom he inspired to fight for a more equal, just, and prosperous world for us all.”
