U.S. Rep. Donald McEachin, D-Va., passed away on Monday at the age of 61 following a long battle with colorectal cancer.
McEachin was just re-elected to the House for a fourth term earlier this month and the congressman’s chief of staff, Tara Rountree, released a statement Monday night announcing his death.
“We are all devastated at the passing of our boss and friend, Congressman Donald McEachin,” Rountree said. “Valiantly, for years now, we have watched him fight and triumph over the secondary effects of his colorectal cancer from 2013.”
