Who is Sotomayor?

"Who is Sotomayor?" Continued...

Meanwhile the Baptist Joint Committee for Religious Liberty reported that Sotomayor's judicial writings "do not provide complete assurance to those who are most concerned about religious freedom rights."

Levey said these issues, coupled with her sidestepping of questions about her Second Amendment stance, could scare off a number of red state Democrats from voting on her when she goes before the full Senate, which could occur as early as August.

Still, while conservatives may not like to hear it, Graham may end up being right: Despite her troubling past statements and confusing recent disavowals of them, Sotomayor, after a largely drama-free hearing week, is likely going to get confirmed as the next justice of the Supreme Court.
