Harris honors Ginsburg, visits Supreme Court

Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), the Democratic Party’s vice presidential nominee, visited the Supreme Court Saturday following the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

“Justice Ginsburg was a titan—a relentless defender of justice and a legal mind for the ages,” she tweeted with a picture of her and her husband, Doug Emhoff, standing in front of the court. “The stakes of this election couldn’t be higher. Millions of Americans are counting on us to win and protect the Supreme Court—for their health, for their families, and for their rights.”

The visit came after Ginsburg died Friday due to complications of metastatic pancreas cancer at the age of 87. Just the second woman to be nominated to the high court, she served on the Supreme Court for over 27 years.

Ginsburg’s death is sparking a fierce partisan battle over her replacement, with Democrats saying a potential nominee should not be confirmed before the 2021 inauguration after the GOP blocked then-President Obama’s nominee to fill Justice Antonin Scalia’s seat in 2016, the last presidential election year.

1. Ruth Bader Ginsburg is who I think of and not Sandra Day O'Connor when I think of the

advancement of women on the court.

I know SDO came first but RBG was the woman I admired.
