Record 40 states honor Reagan birthday

(WASHINGTON EXAMINER) Ronald Reagan can count 40 states that still remember the Gipper fondly.

On his 102nd birthday Wednesday, 40 states–a record–have proclaimed February 6 “Ronald Reagan Day.” Eight Democratic governors have refused to recognize Reagan Day and two others are on the fence.

The Reagan honor is also a tribute to Grover Norquist, head of Americans for Tax Reform. He also heads the Ronald Reagan Legacy Project which asks the nation’s governors to set the day aside for Reagan.
