Posted: 12 February, 2013
WASHINGTON (AP) – The chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee says the panel plans to vote on Chuck Hagel’s nomination to be defense secretary Tuesday afternoon.
Sen. Carl Levin said Monday in a statement that the panel will meet Tuesday afternoon and he intends to vote after committee discussion. The announcement by the Michigan Democrat comes despite Republican objections to moving forward on President Barack Obama’s pick to succeed Defense Secretary Leon Panetta.
