Senators: Hagel would face tough confirmation

Published: 12.23.12, 23:42 / Israel News

Two senators predicted Sunday that former Republican Sen. Chuck Hagel would face a difficult confirmation battle if nominated by President Barack Obama to be defense secretary.


Sen. Joe Lieberman, a Connecticut independent who's retiring and wouldn't have a vote, cited Hagel's less-than-hawkish positions on Iran. Lieberman told CNN's "State of the Union" that it would be "a very tough confirmation process," and "there are reasonable questions to ask and that Chuck Hagel will have to answer." (AP)
