Sotomayor to head to the Hill Tuesday

From NBC's Alicia Jennings
At his daily briefing, White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said that Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor will go up to Capitol Hill on Tuesday for meetings with Sens. Harry Reid (D), Pat Leahy (D), and Jeff Sessions (R). He also said the White House hopes she will meet with Sen. Mitch McConnell (R), but are working through scheduling issues.

"We are hopeful other visits can be scheduled for that Tuesday and throughout the week," Gibbs said.

Her questionnaire will go up to the Senate "at some point next week."
