HARRISBURG — Republican Party of Pennsylvania Chairman Rob Gleason released the following statement regarding the passing of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia.
“Antonin Scalia will be remembered as one of the most consequential justices in the history of the United States Supreme Court,” Gleason said. “For decades, Justice Scalia’s tenacity and love of the Constitution has made him one of the most important figures in our government. His steadfast commitment to the Constitution has helped to lead our nation into the twenty-first century while reminding us of the origins of our Constitutional system. He was a pillar of the United States Supreme Court, and his opinions and dissents will continue to inspire conservatives for generations to come.
“The thoughts and prayers of the Republican Party of Pennsylvania are with his wife, Maureen, his children, grandchildren, and countless friends at this difficult time.”
