Polichicks, we have lost one of our own.

U.S. Congresswoman Jo Ann Davis (R-VA) died Saturday morning after battling breast cancer.  She became Virginia's first Republican woman elected to Congress in 2000, and she served on the House Armed Services Committee and the Foreign Affairs Committee.

President Bush said in a statement, "Her determination to fight the disease is an inspiration to all of us."
