John McCain to lie in state at U.S. Capitol
Sen. Mitch McConnell and other congressional leaders announced Sunday that John McCain will lie in state in the U.S. Capitol to allow the public to pay their respects.
Why it matters: McCain will become just the 31st person to have received the honor of lying in state in the Capitol Rotunda since Henry Clay became the first in 1852. McCain will join an illustrious list that includes Abraham Lincoln, John F. Kennedy and Rosa Parks.
