Sotomayor Approved By Senate Judiciary Committee

Today, the Senate Judiciary Committee voted to approve Justice Sonia Sotomayor as the first Hispanic Supreme Court justice over nearly solid Republican opposition, paving the way for a historic confirmation vote next week. The panel voted 13-6 in favor of Sotomayor, with just one Republican, Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, joining Democrats to support her. So much for bi-partisanship.
