Florida senators backed Sotomayor in 1998

Former senators Bob Graham, a Democrat, and Connie Mack, a Republican, voted in favor of the 1998 nomination of President Barack Obama's SCOTUS pick when she was up for a seat on the U.S. Court of Appeals.

News reports show a hold was placed on Sonia Sotomayor's nomination, but she was eventually confirmed with a 67 to 29 vote. Mack was one of 25 GOP'ers to back her -- 29 Republicans voted against her.
