"Justice Ginsburg paved the way for so many women, including me," Clinton wrote on Twitter. "There will never be another like her."

Clinton's husband, former President Bill Clinton, nominated Ginsburg as a Supreme Court justice in 1993.

The Supreme Court said in a statement Friday night that Ginsburg died "surrounded by her family at her home in Washington, D.C., due to complications of metastatic pancreas cancer."

The Clintons did a group interview with Ginsburg at Georgetown University last year. Bill Clinton said at the event that he knew he was going to nominate Ginsburg within 10 minutes of meeting her.

The justice, who has come to be known as "Notorious RBG," was the court's leading liberal.
