Before jetting off to Washington, Whitmer ordered U.S. and Michigan flags to be lowered to half-staff across the State Capitol Complex and all public buildings and grounds.

Breitbart's Hannah Knudsen reports:

Whitmer's director of communications, Bobby Leddy, reportedly confirmed in an email that Whitmer would attend the closed-door meeting in person, taking place on Wednesday.

As we mourn his loss, our hearts are with his wife, Sarah, their five children, their two grandchildren, and all those who knew and served with him in Hillsdale and overseas.”
