Republican Sen. Judd Gregg says he'll vote for Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor, breaking with most of his fellow Republicans.
The New Hampshire senator says that he may not agree with Sotomayor on all issues or share her political ideology but that she's obviously well-qualified to be a justice. He becomes the eighth Republican to publicly announce he will support President Barack Obama's first high court nominee.
Nearly three-quarters of the Senate's Republicans have said they'll vote against Sotomayor, including all but one of the party's leaders. But with no Democrats expected to oppose her, she has more than enough support to be easily confirmed in a vote expected as early as Thursday.
