The yeas are 68 and the nays are 31.

The US senate handed President Barake Obama an historical victory Thurday as its overwhelmingly approved his nomination of Sonia Sotomayor to be the 1st Spanish justice on the US Supreme Court. Senator majority leader Harry Reed.

It’s truly historical for the entire country, but especially for the young Latinos in this country, who will see and judge Sonia Sotomayor concrete evidence to which they can legitimately aspire.

Democrate held Sonia Sotomayor as a fair-minded jury, with a 17-year experience as a federal judge. Judiciary committee chairman Pratrick Leahy.

She is a judge of an impeccable character and integrity.

But most republicans claimed Sotomayor is lack of impartiality and voted against the nomination. Orrin Hatch is Utah's senior senator.

I’m very, very concerned about this nomination. I feel very badly about it that I have to vote negatively. It’s not what I want to do when this process started. But I believe that I’m doing the honorable and right thing, even through I feel badly about it.

Ultimately, the senate voted 68 to 31 to confirm Sotomayor with 9 republicans breaking ranks. Less than half an hour after the senate vote, President Obama praised the Supreme Court newest edition.

Like so many other aspects of this nation. I feel proud in this achievement and great confidence that judge Sotomayor will make an outstanding Supreme Court Justice.

Sotomayor will be the 3rd woman justice to sit on the Supreme Court. A swearing-in ceremony will happen at the US Supreme Court building on Saturday.
