"It feels appropriate to be at Eureka College," Cross said, quoted by the news source. "In so many ways, what Ronald Reagan did made some profound impacts on this country politically, economically and socially."
According to Cross, after the Watergate scandal, many Americans lost faith in the government. However, after Reagan took office, "there was an incredible turnabout because he said we can do better," he added, quoted by the media outlet.
Furthermore, Cross suggested that Illinois officials ought to mirror the way by which Reagan was able to accomplish change in a nonpartisan fashion.
"He was able to bring the parties together," Cross said.
