As expected, via Hotline On Call:
Along largely partisan lines, the Senate Judiciary Cmte backed SCOTUS appointee Sonia Sotomayor, Pres. Obama’s first high court pick, this morning by a 13-6 vote.
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) was the only Republican to support Sotomayor. The Senate cmte’s Dems voted unanimously for the Bronx native.
Full confirmation next.
