Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has died in her home in Washington D.C. The 87-year-old was the oldest on the Supreme Court. Her death will spark more intrigue with the upcoming election as both the presidency and the Senate will be turned towards her replacement.
“Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg died this evening surrounded by her family at her home in Washington, D.C., due to complications of metastatic pancreas cancer. She was 87 years old,” Tapper Tweeted.
Many on both sides of the political aisle took to social media to express sadness over her passing as well as concern about what this means from a political perspective. A battle may ensue if President Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell try to replace her before the election, especially considering McConnell refused to hold hearings during the President Obama’s final term with the election on its way
