Bob Dole, the longtime lawmaker who overcame life-threatening injuries during World War II to become a shepherd of the Republican Party, died in his sleep at the age of 98.
Dole’s death was confirmed by the Elizabeth Dole Foundation and his family in separate statements Sunday.
In February, Dole revealed that he had been diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer and said he was starting treatment.
A former Senate majority leader and the 1996 Republican nominee for president, the native of Russell, Kansas, championed everything from reforming the federal food stamp program to bringing awareness to disabilities.
Trump responded with a nice statement honoring him:
