NORFOLK, Va. - Virginia Rep. Donald McEachin had been battling cancer since 2013 and it was no secret, but his sudden death Monday caught his friends and colleagues by surprise. "His big brother spirit is something that will live on forever in my heart," said Del. Lamont Bagby (D-Henrico), the chair of the Virginia Legislative Black Caucus. Before being elected to Congress in 2016 to represent the Fourth Congressional District, McEachin served in the Virginia General Assembly as a delegate and senator.
