Washington, D.C.- Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) today released the following statement on the death of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia:

"The power of Justice Scalia's intellect, wit, and judicial method have reverberated throughout American law and conservative thought. His name will now join ‎Marshall, Holmes, and Jackson among the greatest Justices in history. He was a scholar, a patriot, a man of principle, and a man of God. His passing is a loss for the Court and a loss for the country. My deepest condolences to Maureen, his nine children, and his grandchildren."
