White House: Votes Are There For Hagel

The White House thinks it has the Senate votes to put Chuck Hagel in the top job at the Pentagon, but it concedes it may be a narrowly-won victory, National Journal’s Jim O’Sullivan reports. PUSHED Two senior members of the SASC—Republican Sens. James Inhofe of OK and Jeff Sessions of AL — successfully pushed for a delay in the committee’s vote on Defense secretary nominee Chuck Hagel. UPDATE ON McCAIN, FORMER HAGEL BFF Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., told reporters Monday he is against using the filibuster to block a vote on Chuck Hagel’s nomination to Secretary of Defense, Reuters reports.
