      Texas' Hutchison voting against Sotomayor

      WASHINGTON—Republican Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison says she will vote against confirming Sonia Sotomayor to be a Supreme Court justice.

      She said Tuesday she is concerned about Sotomayor's views on the Second Amendment on the right to bear arms. Hutchison is from Texas, where the population is more than a third Hispanic.

      Sotomayor is expected to be confirmed as the first Hispanic justice of the high court.

      Texas' junior senator, John Cornyn, voted against Sotomayor on Tuesday as the Senate Judiciary Committee approved the nomination on a 13-6 vote and sent it to the full Senate.

      Hutchison is seeking the 2010 GOP nomination for governor in Texas.
