Senator Ayotte Speaks Out on Hagel’s Nomination

Official PortraitU.S. Senator Kelly Ayotte (R-NH), released the following statement today regarding President Obama’s nomination of former Senator Chuck Hagel for the next Secretary of Defense:
“While I deeply respect Senator Hagel’s brave service in Vietnam, I am concerned by several positions he took as a senator – particularly his long-standing opposition to increased Iran sanctions and his views regarding Hezbollah and Hamas, as well as our close ally Israel. As the Armed Services Committee reviews his nomination, I will vigorously question him on these and other issues.”
