GOP to Filibuster Hagel

On Friday, the Senate will vote on whether or not to end debate on Chuck Hagel’s nomination.  It will take 60 votes to move forward to a vote on Hagel himself.  If the Dems get the 60, then it will take a simple majority for Hagel to be confirmed.

This is the first time a nominee for Secretary of Defense has been filibustered.

Supposedly, some GOP senators will vote to end debate, but then vote against Hagel himself.

So far, 21 GOP senators have said they oppose Hagel’s confirmation, only 2 have said they support it.

Stay tuned…
