Wyoming Senators vote no on Sotomayor
Laramie, Wy – Wyoming's two U-S Senators cited troubling statements and the second amendment in voting against the new Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor. Senators Mike Enzi and John Barrasso both fear that Sotomayor would be anti gun. Despite their negative votes Sotomayor was easily confirmed by the U-S Senate. While the two Republicans are disappointed with the outcome, the state democratic party is pleased. Chairwoman Leslie Petersen calls Sotomayor's confirmation historic and says she is ashamed that neither Barrasso nor Enzi voted for what she calls "an outstanding woman."
