With a Senate vote on President Barack Obama’s nomination of Judge Sonia Sotomayor to the U.S. Supreme Court looming, Senator Kay Hagan made it clear that she will vote to approve the President’s nomination.
In a released statement Hagan said, “I am pleased to hear President Obama has nominated Judge Sotomayor to the Supreme Court. Certainly the historic nature of this nomination - the first female Hispanic on this court - is important. But more so than her identity, I am impressed by her record of service. I look forward to hearing more about Judge Sotomayor and her record as a jurist throughout the confirmation process.”
If confirmed by the Senate, Sotomayor would replace retiring Justice David Souter.
The 54-year-old Bronx native could be the country’s first Latina justice.
