According to a message from Reichenberg earlier today, 65 year-old DuPont is “in great fighting spirits” while he is being treated for acute Leukemia.

“Please pray for Ed, Monica and their family as they travel through this most difficult time,” Reichenberg wrote to members of the Republican Party of St John County and the Executive Committee.
