Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg passed away on Friday due to complications of metastatic pancreas cancer. She was surrounded by her family at the time of her passing.

Arizona politicos reacted swiftly to the news of the 87-year-old’s death.

Statement from Former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords:
“Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was one of my heroes who never stopped fighting for what’s right, even when it was hard. Her core belief was that every person deserves justice and equality and that our laws should reflect that. Justice Ginsburg’s life has inspired and will continue to inspire a generation of leaders who want to live by the example she set. Her courage and conviction will always be our guiding light. Justice Ginsburg, we will never forget you.”

Statement from Republican Party of Arizona Chairwoman Kelli Ward:
“At this hour, America is mourning the loss of Supreme Court Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. America’s system of justice depends on the faithful service of men and women who dedicate themselves to the fair application of our laws. By definition, there are always those of different political persuasions who disagree with individual rulings and judicial philosophy. But today, we all honor and recognize the extraordinary career and tenacity of Justice Ginsburg. May she rest in peace and her family find comfort.”
