Rep, Tubbs Jones of Ohio suffered a brain aneurysm yesterday and died a short time ago.
Our prayers go out to her family.
Tubbs Jones, 58, served as a Cuyahoga County judge and prosecutor before succeeding U.S. Rep. Louis Stokes. She has served five terms in Congress and is expected to easily win her sixth in November.
UPDATE: Despite press from both the local paper and Roll Call, there is now a back tracking on the story by the media. The Congresswoman might not, in fact, be dead.
UPDATE: Roll Call, having confirmed, then back pedaled, now confirms again. Our prayers remain with her family.
