Old Friends Fete Nancy Reynolds
Comments () | Published June 15, 2007

The 80th birthday party for Nancy Reynolds, long-time lobbyist and Reagan family friend, brought out the Republican heavyweights.

Vice President Dick Cheney and Lynne Cheney, former Defense secretary Donald Rumsfeld and Joyce Rumsfield, Mike and Carolyn Deaver, Reagan attorney general Ed Meese and chief of staff Craig Fuller came to toast the glowing Reynolds, who was leaving the next morning for Africa. Rumsfeld seemed very relaxed and talked about heading off to the Eastern Shore, where both he and Cheney have second homes.

There were even a few Democrats sprinkled around the room—Reynolds’s former lobbying partner Ann Wexler, who served in the Carter White House; her son Dave, a Clinton aide; and lobbyist Michael Berman.

The party was held at Wexler & Walker, Reynolds’s old firm, hosted by Reynolds’s sons, Michael Reynolds and Kurt Wurzberger.

Reynolds will have a second birthday celebration in Morocco next week.
