PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - Former South Dakota legislator Charles "Eddie" Clay of Hot Springs has died.

Gov. Dennis Daugaard says Clay died Thursday at age 90. Daugaard has ordered flags at the state Capitol to fly at half-staff on Monday, the day of Clay's funeral.

Clay served in the state House from 1967-1974. He also was the 1974 Republican nominee for lieutenant governor.
