The former presidential candidate said earlier this year that he had been diagnosed with stage four lung cancer.

Dole released a statement back in February that said, “While I certainly have some hurdles ahead, I also know that I join millions of Americans who face significant health challenges of their own.”

Dole retired from public service after his loss to Bill Clinton in November 1996. But he remained active with television appearances, and he also served on several boards and councils, practicing law and endorsing Republican candidates.

His final public appearance was in December 2018, as he rose from his wheelchair to salute Former President George H.W. Bush and pay respects to his fellow World War II vet and former political rival at the Capitol Rotunda.

Dole finally won his party’s nomination in 1996, but his opponent Bill Clinton won with a decisive margin in the Electoral College — 379 to 159.
