We lost a great one today. U.S. Rep. Elijah Cummings, who had served Baltimore since 1996 (never winning with less than 69 percent of the vote), has passed away. Representative Cummings had been in ill health in recent months and died this morning from longstanding complications. The chairman of the House Oversight and Reform Committee was 68.

He worked until his last breath, according to Cummings’ wife.

Representative Cummings is being honored by politicians, journalists, and others this morning for his lifelong service to Baltimore and this country.

Fittingly, he left this Tweet pinned on his account.

Rest in peace, Congressman Cummings.
