Judge Sotomayor Picks Up More GOP Support


The right-wing obstructionists have failed–more and more Republican Senators are voicing their support for the Supreme Court nomination of Judge Sonia Sotomayor.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (SC) has joined Sens. Olympia Snowe (ME), Susan Collins (ME), Dick Lugar (IN) and Mel Martinez (FL) in supporting Sotomayor’s nomination.

GOP Sens. Thad Cochran (MS), Roger Wicker (MS), Mitch McConnell (KY) and Jon Kyl (AZ) have all said that they will oppose Sotomayor’s nomination.

The Senate Judiciary Committee will vote on Sotomayor’s nomination this coming Tuesday, July 28th. Considering the Democrats’ sizable majorities both on that Committee and in the larger Senate, Judge Sotomayor is expected to easily win confirmation.
