Washington, DC - Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer (MD) released the following statement regarding President Obama's nomination of Judge Sonia Sotomayor to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court:

"In Judge Sonia Sotomayor, President Obama has selected someone eminently qualified to serve on the nation's highest court. Overcoming adversity to rise to the upper echelons of her profession, Judge Sotomayor not only meets the standard of intellect, integrity and command of the law required of a Supreme Court Justice, but offers a breadth of experience that instructs an understanding of the law's practical impact. I hope the Senate will act quickly to move forward with confirmation proceedings."
