Jason Carter Statement on the Passing of Hugh ‘Sonny’ Carter

My family and I are deeply saddened by the passing of Hugh "Sonny" Carter. He was not only close family, but he was crucial in my grandfather’s election as president by organizing the famous Peanut Brigade, and he skillfully implemented true zero-based budgeting within my grandfather’s White House. He was also widely known for his kindness and generosity. We will keep Glenna and his family in our hearts and prayers during this difficult time.
