Salem, OR—Governor Kate Brown today ordered all flags at Oregon public institutions be flown at half-staff immediately until sunset on August 27 in honor of Senator John McCain.
"Yesterday we lost an American hero. Senator McCain's maverick sensibility meant he faced disagreement from both sides of the aisle. But, regardless of where he stood, his colleagues always knew his style was deeply rooted in an unflinching commitment to our country," Governor Kate Brown said. "Dan and I are sending condolences to the entire McCain family during this difficult time. May his legacy continue to live on."
