HARRISBURG (Newsradio 1020 KDKA) - Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf has ordered United States and Commonwealth flags at the state Capitol and all public PA buildings and grounds to be flown at half-staff to honor the late Arizona Senator John McCain.

In a statement Gov. Wolf said, “Senator John McCain dedicated his entire life to his country and we owe him a debt of gratitude for his sacrifice and contributions over decades of service . . . Senator McCain embodied the core principles of American citizenship and he put his country over himself at every turn. He will be missed.”

The flag will be lowered across the state through sunset on Sunday, September 2, the day of McCain’s funeral.
