McDaniel for the defense

Posted By on Thu, Jul 16, 2009 at 11:02 AM

Attorney General Dustin McDaniel testifies this afternoon for Judge Sonia Sotomayor. I'll post the prepared testimony after it's delivered. His spokesman, Gabe Holmstrom, said he's interrupting a family vacation to deliver the testimony. He'll fly to and from Washington (from Destin, I believe) on a private plane paid for with his campaign funds (which at nearly a half-million in the treausry with no opposition so far likely are sufficient)

UPDATE: Here's McDaniel's testimony. It's primarily a defense of her ruling in the New Haven firefighters case. He cited  its broad support among public agencies. McDaniel said Sotomayor in this, and most cases, followed precedent as judges are supposed to do and predicted the Supreme Court's reversal of precedent in the case would lead to more  litigation.
