Casper, Wy – Wyoming U-S Senator John Barrasso says he is looking forward to the hearings of Supreme Court Nominee Sonia Sotomayor before he decides which way he will vote on her nomination. Barrasso says she is a judge with an extensive record and he will be listening to her answers closely.
"I absolutely am going to be open minded on this, I don't think there should be a litmus test. But I think we need to have somebody who is going to apply the law and not write the law."
Barrasso says the life experiences of a single justice should not be part of the court. He expects Sotomayor to get very fair treatment from Republicans and the Senate.
