Murkowski Statement on the Passing of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg

U.S. Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) tonight made the following statement after hearing of the passing of Justice of United States Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg:

“Tonight America lost a true leader and pioneer. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was the second female Supreme Court Justice to sit on the bench. She has been a champion and crusader for equal justice and civil liberties and has made an enduring mark on history. Her life’s story is a reminder of how far women have come in the fight for equality but there is more to be done. I have the greatest respect for her as a trailblazer among women. I am personally deeply saddened by her passing and know that women around the world who have also admired her tenacity and spirit feel the same. Tonight we mourn her passing and turn to honoring her life and legacy.”
