2021: Already 3 Republican Lawmakers Have Suddenly Died

Have you noticed that quite a few prominent Republicans have been dropping dead lately? At a time of the year when most people are at home celebrating the holidays with their families, Republican lawmakers have been dying one after another. Of course important people die all the time, but to have this many Republican politicians die so closely to one another is definitely unusual. I believe that 2021 is going to be a very strange year, and it has definitely gotten off to a very strange start.

As the days move forward, let’s watch and see if the pattern continues and more Republicans suddenly pass away. For now, these are the deaths that we know about so far…

On January 1st, the death of Virginia State Senator Ben Chafin Jr. made headlines all over the country…

Virginia state Sen. Ben Chafin Jr. has died after contracting Covid-19, according to a statement from his office. He was 60 years old.

“State Senator Augustus Benton (Ben) Chafin, Jr., a native son of Russell County located in Southwest Virginia, passed away on January 1, 2021 from Covid-19 complications,” the statement said.

On January 2nd, Pennsylvania House Republican Caucus chairman Mike Reese suddenly died from “an apparent brain aneurysm”…

A state lawmaker who was elected to serve as the Pennsylvania House Republican Caucus chairman in the 2020-21 session has died, the House GOP leader said Saturday.

Rep. Mike Reese, R-Westmoreland/Somerset, “died peacefully with his family by his side Saturday afternoon at Excela Health Westmoreland Hospital in Greensburg following an apparent brain aneurysm,” Rep. Kerry Benninghoff, the Majority Leader, said in a statement also posted on Reese’s official House website and his Facebook page.

Reese was only 42 years old, and he was one of the most important members of the Pennsylvania General Assembly. Needless to say, a lot of pressure was being put on him from both sides because of the hotly contested election results in his state.

Also on January 2nd, a former state representative in Connecticut suddenly passed away…

Dick Foley, a former state representative from Oxford who served as chairman of the Connecticut Republican Party and was an adviser to several governors and would-be governors, died Saturday at his home.

Although he had health problems at times through the years, Foley’s death at age 71 stunned his friends and colleagues in state politics.

That makes three republican deaths in just two days to start 2021.
