After meeting with former Senator Chuck Hagel, U.S. Senator Joe Manchin issued a statement today to announce his support for Hagel's nomination to Secretary of Defense.

"I had a constructive meeting with former Senator Chuck Hagel this week. He assured me that he shares my commitment to preventing Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon, and he stands strongly with our close ally, Israel. Based on that conversation, I intend to support Chuck Hagel's nomination. Chuck is a combat veteran and foot soldier who has a unique understanding of the challenges faced by our men and women in uniform, and a practical leader who understands the need for common sense in military spending and national security strategy."
