WASHINGTON, D.C. –U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) today applauded President Obama’s decision to nominate Judge Sonia Sotomayor to the U.S. Supreme Court.
“I applaud President Obama’s decision to nominate Judge Sotomayor to the U.S. Supreme Court. The daughter of hard-working parents, Judge Sotomayor rose from New York public housing to become one of the most well-respected judges in the nation. Judge Sotomayor will be a tough, fair, and thoughtful addition to our nation’s highest court. She has been nominated to our courts in the past by both Republican and Democratic presidents and confirmed each time by strong bipartisan majorities. I hope we will proceed with the same bipartisan approach to this nomination.”
