WASHINGTON, D.C. – Senator Bob Bennett (R-Utah) met with United States Supreme Court nominee Judge Sonja Sotomayor today to discuss her qualifications and positions on several key issues, such as campaign finance reform and the second amendment.  Following the meeting he issued the following statement:



“I had a very good discussion today with Judge Sotomayor. There is no doubt that she is a well-trained attorney with a long list of qualifications, but her extensive record will take time to review and we should hold our Supreme Court Justices to the highest standards. Judge Sotomayor asked that we concentrate on her judicial decisions rather than on the basis of her speeches during the confirmation process.  Just as I have been with previous nominees, I am committed to giving her a full and fair review.”
