The Factor has learned Harris County District Attorney Mike Anderson has died.
For at least a year Anderson has waged a war with cancer and sources say that battle was lost at midnight.
So far there has been no statement released from the Harris County District Attorney’s office.
A source close to Anderson says his office will release that statement within the hour.
Anderson took office in January of this year after defeating fellow Republican Pat Lykos.
Mike Anderson was 57 years old.
He released this statement in May of 2013 to his staff after rumors he was battling cancer:
“To my D.A. Family, I have been diagnosed with cancer. I have great doctors and am undergoing treatment. I fully intend to beat this. Many people have asked how they can help me. I would ask that you keep me and my family in your prayers and continue to do the great work that you’re doing to make this the best D.A’s office in these United States. Proud to serve with you, Mike”
