Ginsburg is First Woman, First Jewish Person to Lie in State at the U.S. Capitol

Leaders are paying their respects to the inspirational judicator

Democratic nominee Joe Biden paid his respects Friday to the late SCOTUS Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg as she became the first woman to lie in state at the U.S. Capitol, while President Trump was putting in a full day on the campaign trail with stops in Florida, Georgia and Virginia and a fundraiser at his hotel in Washington.

Biden and top congressional Democrats stood before Ginsburg’s flag-draped casket to honor her.

Missing from the ceremony at the Capitol was Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), who is pressing ahead with confirmation of Ginsburg’s replacement despite her dying wish that she not be replaced until a new president is inaugurated.
