Governor LePage ordered all US flags and State of Maine flags to half-staff yesterday, in memory of Senator John McCain.

All flags are to remain at half-staff until sunset the day of McCain's burial, which is set for Sunday at the US Naval Academy Cemetery in Annapolis, Maryland.

McCain died Saturday, about a year after being diagnosed with brain cancer at the age of 81.
