Senator Hirono Statement on the Passing of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Senator Mazie K. Hirono (D-Hawaii) issued the following statement on the passing of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg:

“Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was a giant. There are literally not enough words to describe the transformational impact she had on the lives of millions of Americans as an advocate and a jurist.

“I have a very simple message for Donald Trump and Mitch McConnell tonight. The best and only way to honor the life’s work of Justice Ginsburg, a giant of a jurist, is to honor her fervent final wish that she not be replaced until a new president is installed."
