Brock was a conservative journalist before becoming a major influential figure for many liberal groups, the Washington Examiner reports.

A press release was issued on Wednesday stating that Brock had a heart attack.

"David Brock suffered a heart attack while working in the Washington, D.C. office early Tuesday," the statement said.

"He was quickly transported to a local hospital, received prompt medical treatment, and we are looking forward to a swift recovery," the statement continued.
