WASHINGTON, D.C. – In response to U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia’s death, Congressman Sam Johnson (TX-03) stated: “Justice Scalia faithfully served our Great Nation in the High Court, and he courageously defended America’s Constitution as our Founding Fathers intended. His passing is a great loss not only for the Supreme Court, but for all Americans. I pray that God comforts Justice Scalia’s family during this difficult time. I also pray for our country and the man or woman who eventually succeeds him. Justice Scalia’s successor has big shoes to fill, and America wants, needs, and deserves the kind of Constitutional leadership Scalia provided.”
