April 27, 2023

U.S. Rep. Jamie Raskin, a Maryland Democrat who was diagnosed with cancer last December, said Tuesday that he completed chemotherapy treatment and “the doctors are extremely optimistic.” “I had the last chemo today and got to ring the bell,” the fourth-term, Montgomery County representative said in an interview, referring to the ceremonial end of chemotherapy or radiation. Raskin, 60, who was prominent in a House committee’s investigation of the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the U.S. Capitol, was diagnosed with diffuse large B cell lymphoma, a serious but curable form of cancer.
