Sen. Mark Udall Will Support Hagel Nomination

Sen. Mark Udall (D-CO) announced late Thursday that he will support the nomination of former Nebraska Sen. Chuck Hagel as the nation’s next Secretary of Defense.

“Sen. Hagel showed me today and throughout his confirmation process that he understands the issues facing the U.S. military, and that he agrees we need to pursue a smart, but tough national security policy,” Udall said in a statement. “I believe he will stand with Israel and our allies, take every necessary step to prevent a nuclear Iran, treat all service members equally regardless of their sexual orientation and strengthen our cybersecurity.”
