WASHINGTON, DC - House Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer (MD) released the following statement today on President Obama's decision to nominate Elena Kagan to the Supreme Court:
 
“In nominating Elena Kagan to the Supreme Court, President Obama has chosen an outstanding legal mind and a proven consensus-builder. As Solicitor General and as Dean of Harvard Law School, Elena Kagan has won the respect and admiration of colleagues on both the left and the right for her legal and policy knowledge and for her success in working with advocates of a wide range of viewpoints. I have no doubt that she will bring the same skills to the Supreme Court, as its unprecedented third female justice, where I know that she will be mindful of the impact of the law on the lives of ordinary Americans. I look forward to a thorough exploration of Solicitor General Kagan’s views in a Senate confirmation hearing, which I will follow with great interest.”
