U.S. Representative Charlie Norwood Succumbs To Cancer

POSTED: 1:58 pm EST February 13, 2007
UPDATED: 2:04 pm EST February 13, 2007

U.S. Rep. Charlie Norwood, 65, passed away this morning at his Augusta home following an extensive battle with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) and non-small cell lung cancer.

Norwood received a single lung transplant in 2004 as treatment for IPF, and developed non-small cell lung cancer in 2005.

Norwood represented the Augusta-to-Athens 10th congressional district since 1995, and was re-elected in November 2006 by a landslide margin.

Funeral arrangements are being handled by Thomas Poteet and Son Funeral Directors in Martinez. A schedule of public services will be announced by the 10th Congressional District office as soon as details are finalized.

He left DC only a few days ago: Quick and sad end.

We may lose other very old (mostly democratic) congresscritters and Senators: look for the difference in how the MSM treats this death (repub in a strong repub district with a repub state governor...) compared to the tender treatment and loving recuperation they so desperately wanted for their ill democratic Senator ...

I don't know. Was he actually still in Congress? Seems odd that if was sick that he would have ran last election. (Then again, democrats ran Mel Carnahan)

Your question is quite fine on this forum. This is a political forum and its not out of line.

However, if we attend his funeral services pumping our fists in the air shouting, "We will win", like at the Wellstone funeral, then maybe have a problem.

There will have to be a special election called to select another Representative.

Some of us do not check our humanity at the door to do so.

We can and should discuss the politics of this, at the appropriate time.

But you can bet it's been discussed since the Congressman (God rest his soul) has been ill for quite some time.

I'm sorry to hear that. I think I saw where he checked into a hospice just recently, so that doesn't come as a complete surprise, but still...R.I.P.

That said, John Dingell and Al Gore are still above ground. Unfortunately.

Replacements for House of Reps are not appointed - a special election needs to be held, usually at the next state primary or next state general election. The seat will be vacant until then. If I'm not mistaken.

That's probably true. I've known how ill he was for months. From what I know, he was a good man and I'm sorry that he lost his brave fight.

Prayers for his family. I'm glad he made his peace and had time with his family before he passed.

He was still in Congress.

His doctor found a spot of cancer on his liver after the election.

He chose to come home last week and come under Hospice care.

This is terribly sad.

I hope we can elect a R in this district now.

Herman Cain should run for the seat.

He did. His name was still on the 2000 ballot. And he won (well, his widow did) against John Ashcroft (before J.A. was confirmed as Attorney General).

Which wasn't enough for the Democrat-icks to pull his name off the ballot.
