Hillary Clinton Statement on the Passing of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia
Hillary Clinton issued the following statement on the passing of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia:
"My thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of Justice Scalia as they mourn his sudden passing. I did not hold Justice Scalia's views, but he was a dedicated public servant who brought energy and passion to the bench.
"The Republicans in the Senate and on the campaign trail who are calling for Justice Scalia's seat to remain vacant dishonor our Constitution. The Senate has a constitutional responsibility here that it cannot abdicate for partisan political reasons."
