WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) today applauded the U.S. Senate confirmation of President Obama’s nominee, Judge Sonia Sotomayor, to the U.S. Supreme Court.
“This is a historic day. Judge Sotomayor has demonstrated that she will be a tough, fair, and thoughtful Justice while bringing new insight to the U.S. Supreme Court. Combined with her impressive experience -- more federal judicial experience than any other nominee in more than a century -- I am confident that Judge Sotomayor will be an outstanding addition to the Court, and I applaud her confirmation.”
Brown met with Judge Sotomayor on June 10.
