Senate Republican Leader Dean Skelos said he will vote in favor Jenny Rivera’s confirmation to the state’s highest court, though he said he understood the concerns of Republican lawmakers that her resume is too thin.

“It’s my expectation that she will be confirmed,” Skelos said at a news conference.

Republican lawmakers on Monday and today at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing expressed deep concerns for what they said Rivera’s lack of qualifications for the job.

Sen. John Bonacic, the committee chairman, went as far as to complain that governors — including Cuomo — have pushed for social engineering of the courts with different minority groups represented.

Democrats on the panel vehemently disagreed, calling her the best candidate for the post.

But her confirmation is expected to pass the chamber anyway, despite the unusual scene of lawmakers suggesting that it was anything but assured.

“I think with her nomination there is a lack of trial experience and judicial experience, but this is the governor’s appointment, certainly our conference members have the right to vote the way they wish,” Skelos said. “I Senator DeFrancisco and Senator Bonacic raised some important points, but this is the governor’s nomination.”
