Former Attorney General Janet Reno passed away on Monday after a 21-year battle with Parkinson's disease. She was 78. Reno was first diagnosed with Parkinson's in 1995, while she was attorney general.

Reno, the first female attorney general, served from March 1993 until 2001. She was nominated by President Bill Clinton and was the second-longest serving attorney general.
After her tenure as attorney general, Reno ran for governor of Florida in 2002. She lost in a very close primary by less than one percent.
