GOP heaps praise on "mainstream" Sotomayor, will not filibuster

CNN reports today that not only will Republicans not attempt to block the confirmation of Supreme Court nominee Judge Sonia Sotomayor, but top Senate Republicans even went to far as to praise her record -- one of opposition to individual, property and gun rights -- as "mainstream."

"To be honest with you, your record as a judge has not been radical by any means...You have, as a judge, been generally in the mainstream," said Alabama Republican Jeff Sessions.  Sessions also ruled out any attempt to filibuster the confirmation.

The Libertarian Party at Freedom Fest Las Vegas!



        Freedom Fest 2009 in Las Vegas was a great outreach event for the Libertarian National Committee. The local Libertarian Party affiliate of Nevada is owed a special debt of gratitude, specifically Nathan Santucci, Debra Dedmon, and Kris McKinster. We received dozens of inquiries and passed out tons of flyers, buttons, and LP bags to attendees who wore our logo proudly during the event.

Barr: Sotomayor's few, muddled answers troubling for gun, property rights

Libertarians take aim at Sotomayor’s anti-gun stance


Nominee “can’t think” of a right of self-defense

WASHINGTON -- America’s third largest party reiterated its opposition Wednesday to the Supreme Court nomination of federal judge Sonia Sotomayor after the nominee refused to give a firm answer on whether individuals have the right of self-defense.

“Is there a constitutional right to self-defense?” Sotomayor asked when questioned by Senator Tom Coburn (R-OK) whether or not the Constitution guaranteed him the right of self-defense. “ I can’t think of one. I could be wrong.”

Agrella grabs 5.2% in special election

Chris Agrella, small businessman and Libertarian nominee for Congress in California's 32nd congressional district, grabbed 5.2 percent of the vote in Tuesday's special election to fill the seat vacated by current Labor Secretary Hilda Solis. 

Agrella faced two cousins, Democrat nominee Judy Chu and Republican nominee Betty Chu, in the three-way election after none of the five candidates in a May 19 blanket primary secured a majority.

Libertarians thank Chris for running a principled and active campaign, and for representing the Libertarian Party well.
