Senate Reaction: Minority Leader Mitch McConnell

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) offered this statement in response to the announcement by President Obama that he intends to nominate Judge Sonia Sotomayor to the Supreme Court:

“Senate Republicans will treat Judge Sotomayor fairly. But we will thoroughly examine her record to ensure she understands that the role of a jurist in our democracy is to apply the law even-handedly, despite their own feelings or personal or political preferences.

“Our Democratic colleagues have often remarked that the Senate is not a ‘rubber stamp.’ Accordingly, we trust they will ensure there is adequate time to prepare for this nomination, and a full and fair opportunity to question the nominee and debate her qualifications.”
