Atlanta, Ga – Tea Party Patriots President and co-founder Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement in reaction to the passing of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia.

“Our deepest condolences to the family of Justice Antonin Scalia. I had the opportunity to meet him and hear him give a speech just a few years ago. Justice Scalia’s knowledge of and love for our Constitution were beyond measure. His dedication to the original text of the Constitution inspired millions of Americans and cemented his status as one of our greatest ever Supreme Court Justices. It is critical that the next Supreme Court Justice has the same judicial philosophy and dedication to the Constitution as Justice Scalia. The Senate must block any nomination from President Obama in order to protect the legacy of Justice Scalia and the American people must now realize how much more important the 2016 election has become.”
