Senate confirmation hearings begin July 13 for President Obama’s Supreme Court nominee, Judge Sonia Sotomayor.

Senate Republicans have raised concerns about the nominee, the first Hispanic American nominated for a lifetime appointment to the high court. If confirmed, Sotomayor will be only the third woman to serve as a Supreme Court justice.

Brookings expert Russell Wheeler and Politico Senior Editor Fred Barbash took questions about the historic nomination in this edition of the Scouting Report.
