Cokie Roberts, who covered politics in the nation’s capital for ABC News and NPR over several decades, died Tuesday from complications of breast cancer. She was 75. Roberts worked nearly to the end of her life, saying in August she looked forward to covering next year’s election. Steven, her husband of 53 years, their two children, and six grandchildren survive her.
