Senator Bob Dole Passed Away Yesterday at Age 98

Senator Bob Dole passed away yesterday at the age of 98. Dole was one of Washington’s most recognizable political figures throughout the latter half of the 20th century and according to a statement from his family ‘died in his sleep.’ In February he announced he was being treated for advanced lung cancer and was visited by his friend, President Biden shortly after learning of his diagnosis. Last night, Biden ordered flags at the White House and other public buildings and facilities to be flown at half-staff in honor of Dole. Dole is survived by his wife, former Senator Elizabeth and their daughter Robin Dole.
