Senate to Move Forward With Hagel Nomination

Posted: Updated:

The Senate Armed Services Committee has voted to move forward with Chuck Hagel's nomination for Defense Secretary.

No republicans voted for the decorated Vietnam vet.

During the course of his nomination he has come under fire by the GOP on a number of issues, including American foreign policy in the Middle East.

The democrat controlled Senate is expected to vote and confirm Hagel later this week.

If confirmed, Hagel will succeed Leon Panetta as the pentagon chief.
