AUSTIN (AP) – United States Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia says if he weren’t a Virginian he’d “probably want to be a Texan.”

Swearing in new Texas Supreme Court Chief Justice Nathan Hecht in Austin on Monday, Scalia said, “I do fit right in here.”

That came in response to Gov. Rick Perry, who suggested moments earlier that Texas and its fiercely conservative politics suited Scalia.

Scalia was appointed to the nation’s highest court in 1986, making him the longest-serving Supreme Court justice.

Hecht has been on the Texas Supreme Court since 1988, and Scalia noted with a smile that after 25 years he’s now become chief justice.

Scalia further quipped that, by contrast, he personally still has “nothing to show” for his 27 years on the U.S. Supreme Court.
