Support for Sotomayor Grows on Both Sides of the Aisle
Yesterday, Judiciary Committee member Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) took to the floor to express his support for Judge Sonia Sotomayor's nomination to the Supreme Court. He has joined other fair-minded Republican colleagues, including Senators Lugar, Snowe, Collins and Martinez, in setting aside politically-motivated opposition in favor of integrity and bipartisanship. Though Senator Graham was one of Judge Sotomayor's most aggressive questioners, he has risen above partisanship to recognize that this highly qualified and historic nominee deserves swift confirmation.
