Corker Comments on Hagel Nomination Debate

Statement

U.S. Senator Bob Corker, R-Tenn., made the following statement after voting against ending debate on Chuck Hagel's nomination to serve as Secretary of Defense.

"Generally, I believe a president's cabinet nominee deserves an up-or-down vote in the Senate, but in this case, I believe a number of my colleagues have raised legitimate concerns about information that hasn't yet been made public and that extending the debate gives more time for these concerns to be addressed. Once sufficient time has passed, I am perfectly open to a 51-vote threshold," said Corker.
