Democrat Nelson says he won't vote to confirm Kagan
Without specifying his objections, Nelson said that constituents in his conservative-leaning state do not support Kagan's confirmation.
"Her lack of a judicial record makes it difficult for me to discount the concerns raised by Nebraskans, or to reach a level of comfort that these concerns are unfounded," Nelson said in a statement.
"I have heard concerns from Nebraskans regarding Ms. Kagan, and Therefore, I will not vote to confirm Ms. Kagan's nomination," Nelson said.
Kagan will still probably coast to confirmation, based on a Washington Post accounting of the likely voting.
