Congresswoman Suzan DelBene (WA-01) released the following statement today on the passing of U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg:

“Justice Ginsburg was a pioneer for women’s rights and gender equality. She wrote some of the most consequential legal opinions in modern American history and our country will be forever shaped not only by her service on the highest court in the land but also from her work arguing landmark cases before it. 

“She was an icon to women of all ages who read her story, saw themselves in it, and realize they too could change this country for the better. She will be sorely missed as America faces an uncertain future.

“Following the McConnell Rule set in 2016, the next president should choose her replacement.”
