February 8, 2019

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb says flags flown across the state should be at half-staff until sunset Saturday in honor of the late John Dingell, the longest-serving member of Congress.

Dingell died Thursday in suburban Detroit at age 92. The Michigan Democrat served 59 years as a member of the U.S. House.

The seat is now held by his wife, U.S. Rep. Debbie Dingell.
