Maine's two U.S. senators say they support a proposal to rename the Russell Senate Office Building for Arizona Sen. John McCain, who died on Saturday.  The idea has received support on both sides of the aisle especially because of the history surrounding the man for whom the building is currently named.  But other options to honor McCain are also being discussed.
