Bronx News Roundup, July 29

The Senate Judiciary Committee voted to recommend native Bronxite Sonia Sotomayor for confirmation to the U.S. Supreme Court yesterday by a vote of 13-6. The vote was along aprty lines with one exception, Republican Lindsey Graham of South Carolina voted for Sotomayor. This puts her on the verge of confirmation by the full Senate, which should vote sometime in the next two weeks.

Though details remain extremely vague and sketchy, the AP, via 1010 WINS, is reporting that two Bronxites were shot last night, one fatally. There's no address or even neighborhood attached to this crime. We haven't received any reports from the NYPD about this yet.

The fight to keep the cookie factory Stella d'Oro in the Bronx is moving beyond the borough, to Wall Street, City Hall and even Washington, DC.

Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz, Jr. wants health care and drug research companies to set up shop in the Boogie Down.

Former Bronx B.P. Herman Badillo is endorsing Mike Bloomberg for mayor.
