Speaking on the Senate floor Wednesday, Sen. Lindsey Graham announced that he will vote to confirm Judge Sonia Sotomayor to the Supreme Court. “I take the floor today to inform the Senate, my colleagues, about how I intend to vote on the pending nomination of Supreme Court nominee Judge Sotomayor. I understand the path of least resistance for me personally would be to vote no. And that’s probably true anytime you’re in a minority party and you lost the election, but I feel compelled to vote yes and I feel this is the right vote for me and, quite frankly, for the country in this case,” said Graham.
