    Massachusetts Rep. Chris Walsh Dies of Cancer at 66

    Massachusetts state Rep. Chris Walsh has died following a battle with cancer.

    The Framingham Democrat was 66.

    His wife, Cindy, said in a Facebook post on Thursday that Walsh died peacefully on Wednesday night. She said her husband had undergone several clinical trials over the past year, "and the cancer got the upper hand."

    Walsh was first diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma in 2015.

    Trump allies Michael Cohen and American Media Inc., the owners of the National Enquirer, both admitted to paying off women who claimed to have had affairs with President Donald Trump to help with his 2016 presidential campaigns - something Trump continued to distance himself of in a pair of early morning tweets.

    A father of two, Walsh was in his fourth term in the Legislature and served as the House vice chairman of the Education Committee.

    He's the second House member to die in recent weeks. Rep. James Miceli, of Woburn, died April 21 after a heart attack.

    Three other lawmakers, Sen. Kenneth Donnelly and Reps. Gail Cariddi and Peter Kocot, have passed away during the current legislative term.
