Judge Sotomayor Nominated to Serve on the Supreme Court

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today made this statement on the nomination of Judge Sonia Sotomayor to serve on the United States Supreme Court. Graham is a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee.

“I do not know Judge Sotomayor. I look forward to meeting with her and discussing the important issues confronting the court.

“As a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, I intend to be fair and firm in my questioning of the nominee. The hearings can be a valuable public service as they give us a window into the nominee’s judicial philosophy and disposition. I hope we will have a meaningful opportunity to explore the qualifications, judicial temperament and judicial philosophy of Judge Sotomayor.

“I was fortunate to serve on the Senate Judiciary Committee during the confirmation hearings of both John Roberts and Samuel Alito. Under intense questioning in private and public settings, both nominees advanced clear and concise understandings of the law. I was proud to vote for their confirmation.”
