"President Barack Obama made a wise choice in his nomination of Sonia Sotomayor to serve as the United States Supreme Court Justice. Today's announcement was just what our country needs. With her federal judiciary experience as a prosecutor, litigator, trial judge, and appellate judge on the Second Circuit Court of Appeals, she will make a great contribution to the court. Her intellect and judicial insight will be extremely helpful to the court. More significantly, she understands the challenges of the struggles of all our nation's people. I hope that her nomination would receive tremendous bi-partisan support as she will become our nation's first Hispanic Justice on the U.S. Supreme Court. I know she will serve our nation well."
