Hagel nomination moves through Senate

Posted: 02/13/13 09:27

A bitterly divided Senate panel has voted to approve the nomination of Chuck Hagel to be the nation's defense secretary. The Armed Services Committee voted 14-11 to send the nomination to the full Senate. Tuesday's vote broke along party lines with all 14 Democrats backing President Barack Obama's choice. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is pushing for a full Senate vote by week's end, but some Republicans are threatening to filibuster the nomination.
