BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Sen. Byron Dorgan says he will vote to confirm Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan.

The North Dakota Democrat says he believes Kagan has all of the necessary academic, legal and governmental qualifications.

President Barack Obama nominated Kagan, the U.S. solicitor general, to succeed retiring Justice John Paul Stevens. A Senate vote on her confirmation is expected by early August.
