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.
