Hatch: Sotomayor has 'a problem' - Andy Barr -

Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) said Thursday that Judge Sonia Sotomayor’s past statement that the “court of appeals is where policy is made” would be a problem for her if she were nominated for the Supreme Court.
“That's a problem,” Hatch said during an interview on Fox News after being shown a clip of the Second Circuit Court of Appeals judge’s comment.
“She would have, I think, a more difficult time if she was nominated because of statements like that, and, of course, she has a whole raft of opinions that I think would have to be scrutinized very carefully,” he said.

The Republican senator said that in his conversations with President Barack Obama, he has been assured that the president will pick someone “in the jurisprudential mainstream.”
