Cochran Still Silent on Sotomayor

We have not heard much from Sen. Thad Cochran with respect to how he will vote on the confirmation of Judge Sonia Sotomayor to the Supreme Court. His office has said that an official date to announce his decision has not been set, but that it would be “soon.”

Cochran supported Sotomayor in 1998 when she was nominated by Bill Clinton to the U.S. Court of Appeals.

Just as Wicker’s opposition did not surprise me, I would not be surprised for Cochran to support Sotomayor again.

Update: Silent no longer; Cochran will join Wicker is opposing Sotomayor. Full post coming soon.
