For Tennessee Only
Gov. Bill Haslam has ordered flags flying over the State Capitol and State office buildings to be flown at half-staff in memory of the late Fred Thompson.
Tennessee House Speaker Beth Harwell tweeted flags will be raised back to full staff at sunset on the day Thompson is buried.
Thompson died Sunday in Nashville after a battle with lymphoma.
Thompson was a former Republican presidential candidate, a counsel to the U.S. Senate committee investigating the Watergate scandal and an actor.
As an actor, Thompson appeared on Law and Order from 2002-2007, and in the movie Die Hard 2.
Thompson served as a U.S. senator for Tennessee from 1994-2002.
