Congressman Alan Nunnelee (R-Mississippi) died at his Tupelo, Mississippi, home Friday after fighting brain cancer for eight months.
The 56-year-old Republican was under hospice care after having brain surgery in June.
Nunnelee made attempts to get back to work but missed out on being sworn in with the 114th Congress — the beginning of his third term.
