Former Congressman and Vice Presidential Candidate Jack Kemp Has Died

This is news that just came in – Jack Kemp, the former Republican Congressman from New York, Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, and the running mate for Bob Dole in the 1996 Presidential elections has died.

The details of Representative Kemp’s death have not yet been released; however, he had been battling cancer.

Kemp was a great conservative.  He, like myself, was a libertarian-leaning Republican.  He was strong in his opposition to abortion, and he was a great economic conservative, two areas that have always been really important to me politically.

I just wanted to pay a little tribute to Mr. Kemp.

To his friends and family: my thoughts and prayers are with you.  Jack was a great man, and may he rest in peace.

Done Reporting,

Ranting Republican
