DeMint: Sotomayor's Writings Raise 'Serious Questions'

More

Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC), said he will withhold judgment on Sonia Sotomayor until she appears before the Senate but that some of her writings "seem to raise serious questions about her approach to the Constitution and the role of the federal judiciary." See DeMint's full statement, released this morning by his office, below:

The President has done his part, but now it's up the Senate to determine Judge Sotomayor's qualifications. Some of her writings seem to raise serious questions about her approach to the Constitution and the role of the federal judiciary, but I will withhold judgment about her nomination until she has the opportunity to fully present her views before the Senate.
