The chairman of a GOP committee, which had recently hosted an event with Representative Louie Gohmert and Senator Tom Cotton, has passed away from complications while fighting COVID.
The chairman of the Craighead County Republican Committee in Arkansas, Steven Farmer, was admitted to the hospital on September 15th four days after the event, and taken to the ICU. It is not clear whether Farmer contracted COVID at the event.
The ‘Reagan Day’ event put on by the GOP Committee was extensively photographed, which showed a lack of COVID protocols such as mask-wearing or social distancing.
