What’s a GOP Senate candidate to say about Sonia Sotomayor? On the one hand, this far out you still really need to worry about pleasing the base. On the other hand, you don’t want to look unreasonable in the eyes of the electorate. The Hill‘s Aaron Blake thought he’d try to find out:

It doesn’t actually seem like a very hard question.
