Wicker Statement on Death of Justice Antonin Scalia

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Roger Wicker, R-Miss., issued the following statement regarding the passing of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia:

“Antonin Scalia’s nomination was one of the most consequential acts of Ronald Reagan’s presidency. He was a brilliant, principled, and determined jurist. His leadership will have a profound effect for good for generations to come. I am absolutely heartsick. There is no other way to put it.

“I like to think Antonin Scalia and James Madison are having the damnedest visit right now.”
