KENS 5: ‘A great loss. A great life.’ | Politicians, public react to Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death

AUSTIN, Texas — Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has died of metastatic pancreatic cancer at age 87, according to the U.S. Supreme Court.

During her time as a justice and throughout her long law career, Ginsburg overcame adversity because of her gender, fought for women’s rights and eventually became the leader of the Supreme Court’s liberal wing.

In light of the news of Ginsburg’s death, numerous public figures and politicians spoke about her online.

U.S. Representative Lloyd Doggett (D-Texas), also released a statement:

“This is a painful loss of a defender of our most fundamental liberties at a time when our very democracy is increasingly imperiled by Donald Trump and his enablers. The best tribute to our beloved RBG is to replace a President who shares none of her values. Everything is at stake; let’s give it everything we have.”
