House Representatives Urge Thorough Examination of Former Senator Chuck Hagel

Today, Rep. Tom Cotton and a group of 9 other House Republican veterans issued the following statement urging a thorough examination of former Senator Chuck Hagel's record during his Thursday confirmation hearing:

"As military veterans, we admire Chuck Hagel's honorable and valiant service during the Vietnam War. His courage and commitment in uniform are well documented. At the same time, military experience shouldn't be the sole or primary qualification for Secretary of Defense. Nor should it stifle a vigorous examination of Mr. Hagel's statements and votes on issues such as the defense budget, Israel, Iran, terrorism, and nuclear weapons. We urge the Senate to scrutinize carefully Mr. Hagel's troublesome record on these issues. The common defense of our country and the health of our military cannot afford an uncritical vetting for such a critical Cabinet position."

The 10 representatives making this statement are:

Rep. Kerry Bentivolio (R-MI)
Rep. Mike Coffman (R-CO)
Rep. Tom Cotton (R-AR)
Rep. Doug Collins (R-GA)
Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-FL)
Rep. John Fleming (R-LA)
Rep. Tim Griffin (R-AR)
Rep. Mike Pompeo (R-KS)
Rep. Tom Rooney (R-FL)
Rep. Brad Wenstrup (R-OH)
