Kyl to Vote Against Sotomayor
Senate Minority Whip Jon Kyl (R-Ariz.) has said he’ll vote against Sonia Sotomayor’s nomination to the Supreme Court, Politico reports.
A key member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Kyl’s vote could encourage other Republicans on the committee to vote against Sotomayor as well. He was reportedly undecided as early as yesterday.
Sotomayor is still expected to easily win confirmation. The Judiciary Committee is scheduled to vote on the nomination July 28.
