This week, the Senate will debate and vote on whether to confirm Judge Sonia Sotomayor for a seat on the U.S. Supreme Court. In an interview with CNN’s John King, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) said he can’t make up his mind on whether to vote for her. McCain, who has a history of flip-flopping, said, “I’m still going back and forth.” McCain noted that he voted against Sotomayor when she was appointed to the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals, but clarified that he is “undecided” now because she would “be an inspiration to millions of other Americans, particularly young Hispanic or Latina women.” Watch it:

Later in the interview, McCain said Republicans “have to do a lot more” to appeal to the Hispanic voter. “We have a lot of work to do there,” McCain said of the GOP’s political problems with HIspanics. “We have a very, very deep hole that we’ve got to come out of.”
