“I do fit right in here,” said Justice Scalia, adding that if he weren’t a Virginian he’d “probably want to be a Texan.”

Gov. Rick Perry had suggested moments earlier that Texas and its fiercely conservative politics suited Justice Scalia, who was appointed to the nation’s highest court in 1986. He is the longest-serving Supreme Court justice.
