Nebraska Senator Ben Nelson has announced he will oppose the nomination of Elena Kagan to the U.S. Supreme Court, making him the first Democrat to declare against her.

“I have heard concerns from Nebraskans regarding Ms. Kagan, and her lack of a judicial record makes it difficult for me to discount the concerns,” Nelson said in a statement issued late on Friday.

Kagan, who has served the past year as Obama’s solicitor general, has broad support among the rest of the Senate’s Democratic majority and is expected to get at least some Republican votes as well.
