A Sussex County man says conversations over Twitter led to a friendship with former President Reagan's late press secretary Jim Brady.

Jim Sumstine of Milton tells our sister station he visited with Brady and his wife Sarah Monday, just one day before he died.

"I think they knew a lot of people; they touched a lot of people. They kind of tried to stay out of the political conversations, but they would always remark about how the climate of politics was so different than when it was when he was involved in politics with the Reagan administration," said Sumstine.
