Mississippi has joined 25 other states in declaring Tuesday, Feb. 6 as “Ronald Reagan Day,” honoring the birthday of the late president.

Reagan, who served two terms from 1981-1989, is widely considered one of the most effective presidents in U.S. history. The Republican from California helped revitalize the American economy through cuts to both taxes and spending. He also helped bring an end to the Cold War and the Soviet Union through his “peace through strength” vision.

Gov. Tate Reeves issued the proclamation for Ronald Reagan Day on Jan. 19, lauding the 40th president for economic expansion, growth of the armed forces, and strides toward world peace during his time in office.

Reeves also pointed out that Reagan was wildly popular among the American people, winning 49 of 50 states in the general election for a second term – a record that has not been broken to this day.

Other states that joined Mississippi in the bipartisan effort to honor Reagan were Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Georgia, Idaho, Iowa, Louisiana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont, Virginia, and West Virginia.
