Ruben Diaz Sr. on the Significance of Sotomayor

ALBANY—I just called State Senator Ruben Diaz Sr. to ask for his thoughts on the nomination of Sonia Sotomayor to the U.S. Supreme Court.
“For Hispanics and for all Puerto Ricans, it’s an achievement that is long overdue,” Diaz said. “The Democratic Party has taken us for granted for so long, and we feel we have been there for the Democratic Party always.”
He said Sotomayor, currently a judge on Second Circuit Court of Appeals, was “very qualified” but said that “for Christians, it will be bad.”
“She’s a very liberal person, and she will support a liberal agenda,” he said.
