TN state Rep. dead from pancreatic cancer at 67

Tennessee Republican State Rep. Mike Carter passed away Sunday from pancreatic cancer at the age of 67, according to a statement by his family.

“Mike lost his battle with Pancreatic Cancer late last night, surrounded by his family,” the tweet said. “We’ll miss him very much. We appreciate your prayers during this difficult time.”

Carter announced his cancer diagnosis in November. He had been hospitalized with COVID-19 in August when doctors discovered the cancer.

An outpouring of tributes have been expressed on social media. Fellow Rep. Dennis Powers tweeted:

Tributes for Carter poured in on social media.

“I will miss Mike Carter who was a leader, friend and brother in Christ,” Gov. Bill Lee said on Twitter.

House Speaker Cameron Sexton called Carter “an effective and dedicated public servant. His love of service to his community and to Tennessee was surpassed only by his love for God,” according to the Associate Press.

Funeral arrangements have yet to be announced.

I get paid over $190 per hour working from home with 2 kids at home. I never thought I’d be able to do it but my best friend earns over 15k a month doing this and she convinced me to try. The potential with this is endless…

Stick to topic please. The right conservative way of thinking won’t take the bait. It’s the left trying to infringe unsavoury work ethics on hard working conservatives. God will not allow your non-consecutive values to taint righteous work practice.
To the family who just had a loss, be proud of men and women who fight for the American people. A patriot will be remembered.
