Denver (AP) - Colorado Sen. Michael Bennet says Supreme Court Nominee Sonia Sotomayor is a ``bright and down-to-earth person'' and that he'll support her confirmation.

Bennet, a Democrat, met with Sotomayor in Washington on Tuesday for about 25 minutes. Sotomayor has been meeting with senators since last week, keeping a busy pace despite breaking her ankle a day earlier before boarding a flight from New York to Washington.

Bennet says Sotomayor hasn't lost touch with how her day-to-day decisions impact people's lives despite her long tenure on the bench.

The White House is pressing for her quick confirmation. So far she's met one-third of the senate in just four days of visits.
