Pennsylvania House Republican Caucus chairman Mike Reese suddenly died from “an apparent brain aneurysm”… the second day in a row, leading up to the electoral college vote count on January 6th, that a republican politician died unexpectedly.
A state lawmaker who was elected to serve as the Pennsylvania House Republican Caucus chairman in the 2020-21 session has died, the House GOP leader said Saturday.
Rep. Mike Reese, R-Westmoreland/Somerset, “died peacefully with his family by his side Saturday afternoon at Excela Health Westmoreland Hospital in Greensburg following an apparent brain aneurysm,” Rep. Kerry Benninghoff, the Majority Leader, said in a statement also posted on Reese’s official House website and his Facebook page.
Reese was 42.
Reese was only 42 years old, and he was one of the most important members of the Pennsylvania General Assembly. Needless to say, a lot of pressure was being put on him from both sides because of the hotly contested election results in his state.
