GOP leader raises possibility of Hagel filibuster
WASHINGTON (AP) — Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell is raising the possibility of a filibuster of President Barack Obama's nomination of Chuck Hagel to be defense secretary.
In interview this past weekend, McConnell gave Hagel a poor grade for his testimony before the Senate Armed Services Committee several days ago.
The Senate Armed Services Committee could vote as early as Thursday on the nomination and refer it to the full Senate. Democrats hold a 14-12 edge on the panel.
