Rep. Stephanie Tubbs Jones Dies of Brain Aneurysm


Update: Sadly, it seems earlier reports are now true. Congresswoman Stephanie Tubbs Jones has died after suffering a brain aneurysm. It was previously and widely reported that she had passed away and reports proved conflicting.

Tubbs Jones, 58, was the first African-American woman to represent Ohio in Congress. She has served five terms in Congress and was thought able to easily win a sixth in November.

She garnered attention earlier this year, firmly supporting Hillary Clinton's bid for the Democratic nomination for president. Tubbs Jones drew some criticism for her support of Clinton instead of Barack Obama, though she has a legacy of staunch support for many African-American candidates.

We will update as more information becomes available.
