A Proud Moment

by | Aug 6, 2009 | Supreme Court and Judicial Nominations

I am thrilled that the Senate has confirmed the first Latina — and the third woman — to serve on the Supreme Court.

Sonia Sotomayor will be a superb Justice and an inspirational figure for generations to come.

She has a demonstrated commitment to equal justice and privacy rights, outstanding qualifications and vast and impressive judicial experience — and she will bring welcome diversity to our nation’s highest court.

I want to thank every Senator who voted to confirm Justice Sotomayor and President Obama for appointing her.

This is a proud moment for our nation.
