Vitter to be "No" Vote on Hagel Nomination

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Senator David Vitter today made the following comments opposing the nomination of Chuck Hagel to be the next Secretary of Defense.

"I'll be a no vote on the Armed Services Committee and on the floor," Vitter said. "Given Chuck Hagel's statements and actions on a nuclear Iran, Hamas, and Hezbollah, I think his confirmation would send exactly the wrong message to our allies and enemies alike. Israel, our strongest ally in the region, is dealing with a lot of threat and uncertainty right now; Hagel would make that even worse."

Vitter is a member of the U.S. Senate Armed Services Committee and will be participating in nomination hearings.
