Rep. Donald Payne Loses Battle With Cancer

Sad news, no matter what party you belong to (emphasis in original):

Rep. Donald Payne, a New Jersey Democrat first elected to Congress in 1988, has died after a battle with colon cancer. He was 77.

Payne just went public with his illness last month. At the time, he vowed to fight the disease, saying his doctors “expect my full recovery, as do I.” But as his condition deteriorated, he was flown from Washington to New Jersey in early March on a medical transport.

He passed away on Tuesday, according to various news reports.

Cancer is a terrible disease, and it causes a lot of pain and suffering, regardless of one’s ideology.

I do hope that my fellow conservatives will show more grace at this man’s passing than the lefties did at Breitbart’s, and join me in praying for his family and friends.
