Former Governor's Life Celebration Underway

Nominees Square Off In Louisiana Gubernatorial Debate

Former Governor Kathleen Blanco is lying in state today in the State Capitol Rotunda for public visitation.

It's part of the three-day celebration of life for the former leader, who died on Sunday following a fight against cancer.

Tomorrow, there will be a public visitation and prayer service in Acadiana before Saturday's Mass of Christian Burial in Lafayette.

Current Governor John Bel Edwards has ordered all flags to be flown at half-staff until the conclusion of the funeral on Saturday.
