More Republicans for Sotomayor
Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor is winning over more Republicans every day. As I noted yesterday, by the end of the hearing Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) was sounding like one of her biggest defenders.
Today, Richard Lugar (R-Ind.) came out with this statement:
I have listened to the testimony of Judge Sonia Sotomayor before the Senate Judiciary Committee, carefully reviewed her public service record, and reviewed recommendations from Indiana constituents and colleagues here in the Senate. Judge Sotomayor is clearly qualified to serve on the Supreme Court and she has demonstrated a judicial temperament during her week-long nomination hearing. Judge Sotomayor has had a distinguished career of public service. She is well regarded in the legal community and by her peers. **I will vote to confirm Judge Sonia Sotomayor’s nomination to serve as an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States.
