Tonight we learn Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia passed away overnight.. on a hunting trip in Texas.

Idaho senator Jim Risch released a statement tonight:

"Today America lost a great jurist.... from a personal standpoint.. I lost a good friend. Justice Scalia loved Idaho and loved fishing. On his last trip to Idaho we spent a fabulous day fishing Silver Creek in Blaine County. He said it was one of the best... if not the best of days he had spent fishing. He and I shared a love of the outdoors. We had talked about a repeat trip but as often happens we waited too long. America will miss him and so will I."
