Lincoln to vote against Alito

LITTLE ROCK (AP) - Senator Blanche Lincoln says she plans to vote against Judge Samuel Alito's confirmation to the Supreme Court.

The Arkansas Democrat announced her opposition in a conference call with reporters. Lincoln says she plans to make a speech on the Senate floor explaining her opposition.

A spokeswoman for Senator Mark Pryor, the state's other Democratic senator, says Pryor is still undecided.

Last year, both Lincoln and Pryor voted to confirm John Roberts, Bush's pick for chief justice.
