Former Democratic Sen. Kay Hagan, who had been ill for years due to a tick-borne illness that caused brain inflammation, died Monday at 66.
Hagan, a moderate Democrat who represented North Carolina, beat powerful incumbent Republican Elizabeth Dole to win her seat in 2008, before losing to Sen. Thom Tillis, R-N.C., in 2014. Colleagues and family honored her service in statements on Monday.
The article goes on to state the following:
“We are heartbroken to share that Kay left us unexpectedly this morning,” her family said in a statement, according to the Charlotte Observer. “Kay meant everything to us, and we were honored to share her with the people of North Carolina whom she cared for and fought for so passionately as an elected official. Most of all, we already miss her humor and spirit as the hub of our family, a role she loved more than anything. Nobody could light up a room and make people feel welcome like Kay.”
Sen. Richard Burr (R-N.C.) said on Twitter, “Brooke and I are deeply saddened by the sudden and untimely loss of Kay Hagan. Our prayers are with her family.”

I just spoke to Kay Hagan’s husband Chip, and I told him that from the moment I first met Kay Hagan, I knew that she was special—and she remained that way every day since.https://t.co/EEqciMBm3G

My heart goes out to Chip Hagan and the entire Hagan family in the passing of Kay. Sen. Hagan was dedicated to serving North Carolinians and especially to the men and women of the Armed Forces in America’s most military friendly state. https://t.co/syvJsgBehR
