Richard Lugar, a longtime Republican senator from Indiana, died on Sunday at age 87. He was undergoing treatment at Inova Heart and Vascular Institute in Virginia for a rare neurological disorder called chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy, the Lugar Center in Washington said in a statement. The former Rhodes Scholar was a leading Republican voice on foreign policy during his 36 years in the Senate. Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb ordered flags in the state flown at half-staff until Lugar’s funeral, which has not yet been announced.
