Former President Barack Obama on Friday paid tribute to Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, calling on Senate Republicans to follow the precedent set when they refused to consider his Supreme Court nominee in 2016 and not consider a replacement for the high court until after the next president is sworn in.

“Ruth Bader Ginsburg fought to the end, through her cancer, with unwavering faith in our democracy and its ideals. That’s how we remember her. But she also left instructions for how she wanted her legacy to be honored,” Obama said in a statement of the liberal justice who died Friday at age 87.
 
Days before her death, Ginsburg told her granddaughter that her “most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed,” NPR reported.
