Lindsey Graham Says He Will Vote For Sotomayor; 5th Republican

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), a conservative Republican who closely grilled Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor during the Senate Judiciary Committee confirmation hearings, announces he will vote FOR her nomination.

Graham is the fifth Republican to do so — joining Snowe & Collins of Maine, Lugar of Indiana, Martinez of Florida. But Graham's vote is the biggest surprise.
