Carly Fiorina in 2009: ‘I would have voted for Sotomayor’

October 7, 2015

 With Carly Fiorina enjoying a bit of a bump in the polls people are starting to dig into her past to see where she stood on the issues and it is beginning to look like she is not who she claims to be–either that or her positions have evolved.

  At the end of last month we learned that in 2013 Carly Fiorina stated she supported the Obamacare individual mandate and today The Right Scoop has  unearthed an article from 2009, while she was running for the Senate in liberal California, in which she stated she would have voted to confirm Sonia Sotomayor. Here it is:

California Senate candidate Carly Fiorina told a group of conservative journalists yesterday that she probably would have voted to confirm Sonia Sotomayor to the Supreme Court, handing conservatives an issue to use against her in the primary against state Assemblyman Chuck DeVore:

In what would turn out to be the biggest news emerging from the breakfast, Fiorina said that, while she did not study Sonia Sotomayor in great deal (“I was battling cancer at the time”), she probably would have “voted for her” confirmation to the Supreme Court. The daughter of the late Deputy U.S. Attorney General and U.S. Court of Appeals Judge Joseph Sneed said she “does not believe in litmus tests” for judicial nominees and that the chief criterion for service on the bench is “respecting the Constitution.”

Only seven Republican senators voted for Sotomayor’s confirmation in August, a list that includes all of the party’s moderates: Sens. Lamar Alexander of Tennessee, Kit Bond of Missouri, Susan Collins of Maine, Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, Dick Lugar of Indiana, Mel Martinez of Florida, Olympia Snowe of Maine and George Voinovich of Ohio.

  It will be interesting to hear what she has to say about this now that she is running for President, will she defend the comment or will she try to back down from it? Did she only say it to appease the voters in a liberal state? If she did only say it to appease the voters than she can not be trusted on any of her opinions today for this proves that she will say anything to win election.

  Carly Fiorina is running as an outsider, a non-politician, but if she only said she would support Sonia Sotomayor to garner votes it would appear as if she is a fast learner in the world of politics. Of course there is always the possibility that she is not being wholly honest with the voters today, which again proves she is a fast learner in the world of politics.
