Senate panel plans to vote on Defense nominee Hagel

WASHINGTON

Senate Democrats are pushing ahead with a vote today on Chuck Hagel’s nomination to be defense secretary, rejecting Republican demands for more financial information from Hagel in a politically charged fight over President Barack Obama’s second-term national-security team.

In a brief statement, Sen. Carl Levin, chairman of the Armed Services Committee, said the panel would meet this afternoon with the “intention to vote on the nomination after the members have an opportunity for discussion.”

Levin had hoped to have a committee vote last Thursday but postponed it amid complaints from Republicans that Hagel hadn’t sufficiently answered questions about his personal finances.
