Durbin Statement On The Passing Of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg

WASHINGTON—U.S. Senate Democratic Whip Dick Durbin (D-IL) released the following statement after the passing of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg:

“The Supreme Court’s most valiant champion for justice in our lifetime is gone.  Justice Ginsburg was an American hero. 

“Please remember Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s demand that Supreme Court vacancies go unfilled during a presidential election year, which was also Justice Ginsburg’s dying wish.  Senator McConnell pleaded with us to let the voters have the last word.  Every member of the Senate should be asked to commit to the McConnell Rule.”

“Rest in peace, Ruth Bader Ginsburg.”
