Justice Antonin Scalia has died at age 79.

Here's the pertinent info from an ABC affiliate in Texas on the death of the (extremely) conservative justice:
EL PASO — An El Paso source close to Justice Antonin Scalia tells ABC-7 that the 79-year-old died in his sleep last night after a day of quail hunting at Cibolo Creek Ranch outside of Marfa, Texas.

The Justice did not report feeling ill and retired to his room after dinner. The source, who was traveling with Scalia, told ABC-7 an El Paso priest has been called to Marfa.

Scalia was the longest-serving current Justice on the Supreme Court. He was appointed by President Ronald Reagan in 1986.
Staggeringly, the communications flack for Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) went you-know-where with his Twitter feed immediately after hearing the news:
And then followed that up — not an hour later — with: Haven't seen anything from the Indiana delegation yet. We'll update.
