According to Reuters, U.S. Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith announced that former U.S. Senator Thad Cochran has died on Thursday at the age of 81.

Cochran had served as chairman of the influential Senate Appropriations Committee, which controls billions of dollars in discretionary spending.

He resigned from the Senate last year due to health concerns.

Hyde-Smith was first appointed to take his seat, and won a special election last November to serve the remainder of his term.
