Senator Lankford Statement on the Death of Justice Scalia

OKLAHOMA CITY, OK – Senator James Lankford (R-OK) today released the following statement on the death of Justice Antonin Scalia:

“The loss of Justice Antonin Scalia is a tremendous loss for the Supreme Court and for America. He was a principled Constitutionalist that provided an excellent model for how a Supreme Court Justice should evaluate a case and interpret the original intent of the law. He lived a full life of many accomplishments, including success as a lawyer and scholar, as well as a devoted husband and father.  No other Justice stood stronger for Conservative principles and gave a more articulate defense for the Constitution.”
