Hugh McKean, Colorado House minority leader, dies Sunday


Rep. Hugh McKean, the leader of the Republican caucus in the Colorado House, died Sunday at his Loveland home, according to several statements from the party. He was 55.

McKean, who was first elected in 2016 and was chosen to lead the caucus in 2020, was found at his home in Loveland Sunday morning, officials said. In a statement, the Colorado House Republicans described his death as sudden.

“Hugh was fiercely passionate about two things in his extraordinary life: serving the great state of Colorado and spending time with his family, whom he adored,” the party said.

In a separate statement, Kristi Burton Brown, the chairwoman of the Colorado Republican Party, mourned McKean’s passing and remembered the time he took to meet and interact with her children.
