Chambliss Statement on Chief Justice Rehnquist
U.S. Senator Saxby Chambliss, R-Ga., today issued the following statement regarding the passing of Supreme Court Chief Justice William Rehnquist.
"It is with deep sadness and heavy hearts that Julianne and I learned of the passing of Chief Justice Rehnquist. Our thoughts and prayers are with the entire Rehnquist family at this sorrowful time.
"Chief Justice Rehnquist was dedicated to America's judicial system and he made significant contributions to our nation's highest Court. It was Rehnquist's leadership that kept the Court together through so many cases before the Court and he will be sorely missed.
"While this is obviously a very sad time for the Rehnquist family and the United States, I look forward to working with my colleagues in the United States Senate and with President Bush to confirm his replacement."
