McConnell Promises Senate Will Not "Rubber Stamp" Sotomayor

Washington, DC – Kentucky U-S Senator Mitch McConnell has released the following statement regarding Judge Sonia Sotomayor.

"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."
