BALTIMORE, Md. – Maryland democratic candidate for governor and Baltimore County Executive, Kevin Kamenetz, died Thursday morning at the age of 60.

Kamenetz was asleep at his home in Owings Mill when he woke up around 2 a.m. and complained about feeling sick, officials say.

Kamenetz was taken to the hospital around and officials say he was pronounced dead around 3:20 a.m. The cause of death was cardiac arrest.

“He was a dedicated public servant in Baltimore County for more than two decades, and we join with the citizens of Baltimore County and all Marylanders in mourning,” said Governor Larry Hogan in a tweet.

Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh called Kamenetz an “ardent supporter of Baltimore City” and ordered that all Baltimore City flags be flown half mast Thursday.

Governor Hogan ordered the same thing for all Maryland flags.
