(Washington, DC) – Today, U.S. Senator Patty Murray (D-WA) released the statement below following the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States. Ginsburg was the second woman appointed to the U.S. Supreme Court.

“Ruth Bader Ginsburg was the first Justice I voted for. Tonight, my heart is breaking for a million reasons—for her family, for our country, for my North Star. I’ll remember her as a friend, a role model, and a woman who opened doors for all the rest of us with her genius and her relentless pursuit of justice, freedom, and equality for each and every one of us, no matter who we are. That fight for justice, which she led so passionately for so long, is now ours to take up in her memory. Ruth Bader Ginsburg gave her all to us, and I will give mine to making sure the American people have their next President before her seat is filled.”
