Sotomayor Committee Vote Happening Soon

Today, Judge Sonia Sotomayor’s confirmation to the US Supreme Court will be voted on by the Senate Judiciary Committee. Most of the Republicans on the Committee have stated that they will not be supporting her due to some of her controversial statements and opinions, including Senator Orrin Hatch (UT). Hatch previously voted to confirm Sotomayor to a lower court appointment. However, Senator Lindsey Graham (SC) will be joining the Democrats on the committee in voting for her, making the projected vote 13-6 in favor of Sotomayor. We’ll be updating our blogs and Twitter as soon as the vote is announced.
