      Senate Committee to Vote on Hagel Nomination Tomorrow


      Chairman of the Armed Services Committee of the Senate, Carl Levin, said that the committee will vote tomorrow on the nomination of Chuck Hagel as Minister of Defense.

      Voting will take place after a hearing in which committee members will present their views on the appointment. Hagel, a former Republican Senator from the state of Nebraska, has been criticized in light of past statements about Israel and the Iranian nuclear issue.
