BREAKING: Former Senator Jim Inhofe dead at 89 after sudden illness

Former Oklahoma Senator Jim Inhofe has just died at age 89 after a sudden illness. He is said to have passed peacefully at home with his wife holding his hand.

Here’s more from The Hill:

Former Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.) has died at the age of 89, his family announced Tuesday.

Inhofe died shortly before 5 a.m. on Tuesday, surrounded by his wife, Kay, and three surviving children, Molly, Jimmy and Katy, the family said.

Inhofe’s family said he contracted a sudden illness over the holiday, but did not provide details.

His death comes nearly two years after the former senator retired from the upper chamber in 2023 after serving for more than 20 years in Congress. He was Oklahoma’s longest-serving U.S. senator.

May Inhofe rest in peace with God in Heaven.



Unfortunately some in the political landscape are using Inhofe’s death to bash him one last time:

This offensive garbage was written by four people at Politico on the announcement of his death and it tells you nearly everything you need to know about the publication.
