Raleigh, N.C. – North Carolina House Speaker Tim Moore (R-Cleveland) released a statement remembering former U.S. Senator Kay Hagan on Monday, who passed away unexpectedly after battling a tick-transmitted Powassan virus since 2016.
“Senator Hagan represented the very best of North Carolina both as a committed public servant and an accomplished executive in the private sector,” Speaker Moore said.
“Her tragic death is a shock to the citizens she served faithfully in the General Assembly and the U.S. Congress. I join millions of her fellow North Carolinians remembering her immense contribution to our state and sending her family our deepest condolences during this tragic time.”
Hagan was an attorney and banking executive who served in the North Carolina Senate from 1999-2009 and the U.S. Senate from 2009-2015.
