Washington, D.C. – House Republican Conference Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) released the following statement regarding the passing of Senior Associate Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia.
“I am deeply saddened to hear of Justice Scalia’s passing. He took his oath to heart and was unwavering in his defense of the Constitution of the United States, authoring some of the most principled and memorable dissents in our nation’s history. His passing is a tremendous loss for this country – one we cannot even begin to comprehend – but his legacy lives on in all those he inspired. Maureen and their children are in my prayers.”
