Sotomayor Will Meet With a Dozen Senators on Tuesday

Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor on Tuesday will pay courtesy calls on at least 10 Senators — including six Democrats and four Republicans — and have lunch with her two home state Senators, Democrats Charles Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand of New York.

Sotomayor will pay calls on Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), Senate Judiciary Chairman Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.), Judiciary ranking member Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.), Senate Majority Whip Richard Durbin (D-Ill.), Senate Minority Whip Jon Kyl (R-Ariz.), and Sens. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) and Orrin Hatch (R-Utah), according to an itinerary released by the White House.

Sotomayor on Monday was meeting at the White House with officials who are working on her confirmation. Monday’s work has focused on completing her Senate questionnaire and prepping the nominee for her Hill visits, according to an administration official.
