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.

President Obama will nominate Judge Sonia Sotomayor
If confirmed by the Democratic-controlled Senate, Judge Sotomayor, 54, would replace Justice David H. Souter to become the second woman on the court and only the third female justice in the history of the Supreme Court. She also would be the first Hispanic justice to serve on the Supreme Court.
