Former congressional candidate Van De Water dies

Former congressional candidate Kyle Van De Water has died.

Details surrounding the circumstances of his death are unclear at this point.

Van De Water was a veteran, attorney, and father of four.

He was running in the 19th congressional race again — but then just two weeks ago announced his circumstances changed and he decided to withdraw.

"My heart breaks for Kyle, and his beautiful family, " Rep. Antonio Delgado said in a statement. "We shared a number of conversations about family and country, and I walked away from each one knowing that he had a profound love for both."

Delgado went on to say veterans across our country are going without the support and care their service to our great land necessitates.
