CARSON CITY, Nev. (KOLO)-- Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak ordered the U.S. and state flags fly at half-staff Saturday to honor late U.S. Rep. John Dingell of Michigan, who died Thursday at age 92.

This will be at the State Capitol and at state public buildings and grounds.

Dingell represented parts of southeast Michigan for almost 60 years before retiring in 2014 as the longest-serving member of Congress in U.S. history.

The resolution from Sisolak called Dingell a champion of working families and an opponent of corporate fraud.

President Donald Trump said Friday on Twitter that John Dingell was "highly respected" and had a "great reputation."

Trump also wrote in reference to John Dingell being the longest-serving member of Congress in U.S. history that "if people understand politics, means he was very smart."
