Former President Jimmy Carter reacts to death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Here is a statement from former President Jimmy Carter on the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg:

Rosalynn and I are saddened by the passing of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. A powerful legal mind and a staunch advocate for gender equality, she has been a beacon of justice during her long and remarkable career. I was proud to have appointed her to the U.S. Court of Appeals in 1980. We join countless Americans in mourning the loss of a truly great woman. We will keep her family in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.

Carter appointed Ginsburg as a federal judge in 1980
