Mark Warner reacts to Sotomayor nomination

with one comment

Virginia’s junior senator, Mark Warner, will be right in the middle of the confirmation of President Barack Obama‘s first nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court. The senator just released a statement on the nomination of Sonia Sotomayor. In typical Warner fashion, he is cautious in his praise of Judge Sotomayor. He complimented her legal record, but did not go far enough to say that he is ready to support her confirmation.

His full statement is below:

STATEMENT OF SENATOR MARK WARNER
~ On the President’s nomination of Judge Sonia Sotomayor to the U.S. Supreme Court ~

Washington, DC – U.S. Senator Mark R. Warner issued the following statement on President Obama’s nomination today of Judge Sonia Sotomayor to serve on the United States Supreme Court:

“In nominating Judge Sonia Sotomayor to fill the seat that Justice Souter is vacating, President Obama has selected a woman with an extraordinary personal story and very impressive legal credentials. I now look forward to the Senate Judiciary Committee undertaking its confirmation responsibilities, and I anticipate that the Senate will conduct its constitutional responsibility to advise and consent with thoroughness and without delay.”
