Senate Judiciary Committee approves Sotomayor

As expected, the Senate Judiciary Committee voted 13-6 to send the nomination of Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor to the full Senate, clearing the way for the Court’s first Latina justice to be confirmed as early as next week.

All Democrats on the committee voted in favor of Sotomayor, joining just one Republican – Sen. Lindsay Graham, R-S.C. – in supporting her.
