Solicitor General Elena Kagan is one step closer to becoming the fourth female justice on the Supreme Court.
On Tuesday, the Senate Judiciary Committee voted, 13-6, to send her confirmation to the full Senate.
Just one Republican, Sen. Lindsey Graham, S.C., joined Democrats to approve Kagan's nomination.
"What's in Elena Kagan's heart is that of a good person who adopts a philosophy I disagree with," Graham said. "She will serve this nation honorably, and it would not have been someone I would have chosen, but the person who did choose, President Obama, I think chose wisely."
Carrie Severino, chief counsel and policy director of the Judicial Crisis Network, appeared on the July 21 of the CBN Newschannel's Morning program to talk more about Kagan's pending confirmation. Click play for her comments.
Other Republicans argue Kagan will only promote her liberal agenda on issues like abortion and gun rights.
"Ms. Kagan's record shows that she supports an activist judicial philosophy, and that her personal and political views drive her legal views," Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, said.
Kagan is expected to be confirmed within weeks, but probably with fewer votes than Justice Sonia Sotomayor got last year.
If she is confirmed, it would be the first time that three women are serving together on the nation's highest court.
