Bob Dole Dead - Republican Presidential Nominee & Senator Dies at 98

Bob Dole has died.

The Republican presidential nominee and longtime senator passed away at the age of 98, the Elizabeth Dole Foundation confirmed Sunday (December 5), via Deadline.

The statement confirmed that the politician died early on Sunday morning (December 5) in his sleep.

He was first elected to the House of Representatives in 1960, and later to the Senate in 1968. President Gerald R. Ford selected him as his running mate, and he also ran for president in 1988.

Six years later, he won the Republican nomination, and ended up selecting Jack Kemp as his running mate, losing to Bill Clinton and Al Gore.

Our thoughts are with Bob Dole‘s loved ones at this difficult time. We have sadly lost these stars in 2021.
