Former Senate majority leader and 1996 Republican presidential nominee Bob Dole will lie in state in the U.S. Capitol Rotunda on Thursday, congressional leaders said in an announcement.

"Senator Dole was an extraordinary patriot, who devoted his entire life to serving our nation with dignity and integrity," said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, in a joint statement with Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer.

Dole died Sunday at age 98. He had announced in February that he was being treated for advanced lung cancer.
