    US Congressman Donald McEachin, a Democrat from the state of Virginia, died on Monday just under a month after being re-elected to the country’s House of Representatives, according to a statement from his press office.

    “We are all devastated by the death of our boss and friend, Congressman Donald McEachin,” said his chief of staff, Tara Rountree, in the statement posted on social networks.

    “Bravely, for years, we have watched him fight and triumph over the side effects of his 2013 colorectal cancer. Tonight, he lost that battle, and the people of Virginia’s Fourth Congressional District lost a hero who always, always fought for them. and put them first,” added Rountree.

    McEachin, 61, had been first elected in 2016 to represent the fourth district of the United States House of Representatives, all after serving in both chambers of the Virginia General Assembly, according to CNN.

    In the mid-term legislative elections, held on November 8, the congressman had been re-elected in the race for his seat.

    Now new elections must be called in his district to elect a new representative, although the victory will not imply any relevant change in the disposition of the Lower House, since the Republican Party has a majority of seats.
