Ross Perot died Tuesday (July 9) after a battle with leukemia.
According to a statement, the Billionaire transitioned at his home in Dallas “surrounded by his devoted family.”
Perot was born in Texarkana, TX in 1930 and entered the U.S. Naval Academy in 1949.
He is best known for running for president twice as a third-party candidate. He campaigned on cutting the national debt and protecting American workers from outsourcing.
In the 1992 run against George H. W. Bush and Bill Clinton, he won 19.7 million votes, almost 20 percent of the popular vote. At that time, it was among the best showings by an independent presidential candidate in the 20th century.
Perot is survived by his wife, Margot, his children and countless other family members.
Ross Perot was 89.
