Sen. Richard BurrRichard Mauze BurrTrump: Why isn't Senate looking into 'Fake News Networks'? Overnight Cybersecurity: Equifax security employee left after breach | Lawmakers float bill to reform warrantless surveillance | Intel leaders keeping collusion probe open Special counsel looking into dossier as part of Russia probe: report MORE (R-N.C.) is a "maybe" on voting to confirm Sonia Sotomayor, the Charlotte News & Observer reports.
Burr spokesman David Ward said Monday that the Republican senator wants to ask Sotomayor a few more questions about her record.

"He will be able to make a more thorough assessment of her qualifications after meeting with her next week and asking specific, substantive questions to ensure that she is committed to upholding the Constitution and the rights and freedoms it protects," Ward said in a statement.

A handful of Republicans--Lugar (Ind.), Snowe (Maine), Collins (Maine), Martinez (Fla.)--have announcd their support for Sotomayor. But Burr would be the most conservative Republican so far to support the President's nominee.

Coincidentally, the North Carolina Republican is up for re-election in 2010.
