Supreme Court

Senate to Vote on Sotomayor

Sonia Sotomayor’s moment of truth has arrived: The United States Senate is set to vote on her nomination to the United States Supreme Court on Thursday. Three-quarters of Republicans have indicated that they will oppose her, but with Democrats voting en bloc, she’s expected to be confirmed. A couple more Republicans also indicated that they’d join the Dems: Judd Gregg of New Hampshire spoke out against politicizing the confirmation process, while Kit Bond of Missouri said, "There's been no significant finding against her, there's been no public uprising against her. I will support her.”
