TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- Newly confirmed Kansas Court of Appeals Judge Caleb Stegall says the state's residents want their public servants to show more loyalty to the state and their neighbors than to a particular political party.

Stegall said Wednesday that loyalty to what he called "our mutual home" and to the common good will continue to drive him as he serves on the state's second-highest court.

His appointment to the court by Republican Gov. Sam Brownback was confirmed Wednesday by the GOP-dominated state Senate on a 32-8 vote.

Stegall told The Associated Press that he's honored by the confidence that both Brownback and state senators have shown in him.

He declined to comment on the vote, which was along party lines.

He doesn't know when he will be sworn in.
