2012 GOP candidate Herman Cain has died of the coronavirus in an Atlanta-area hospital at age 74.
It’s not clear when or where Cain was infected, but he was hospitalized less than two weeks after attending President Donald Trump’s campaign rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma. He did not meet with Trump there, according to the campaign.
Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt on Tuesday defended the state’s $2 million purchase, saying the drug was showing some promise. His health secretary attributed buying the 1.2 million hydroxychloroquine pills to something that happens in the “fog of war.”
The governor’s plan was met with immediate resistance from the Oklahoma State Medical Association and Democrats in the state House of Representatives.
After a decade of opposition, Oklahoma’s Republican leaders signaled a willingness to expand Medicaid to cover more low-income adults.
Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt who broadly expanded executive powers in his first term last year, will ask the Legislature to extend those even further as he lays out his vision in his second State of the State address to lawmakers on Monday.
