Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia has died at a Texas ranch at the age of 79, Politico reports.
San Antonio Express News: “Scalia arrived at the ranch on Friday and attended a private party with about 40 people. When he did not appear for breakfast, a person associated with the ranch went to his room and found a body… A federal official who asked not to be named said there was no evidence of foul play and it appeared that Scalia died of natural causes.”
Sen. Ted Cruz called Scalia a “hero” and suggested “that the next President names his replacement.”
