Durbin, Kirk on Hagel for Defense Secretary

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

WASHINGTON--Neither Illinois Senator, Democrat Dick Durbin nor Republican Mark Kirk are enthused about President Barack Obama nominating former Sen. Chuck Hagel for Defense Secretary.

Durbin on Sunday told CNN's Candy Crowley on "State of the Union" Hagel was a "serious candidate" and little more about the man who is expected to face GOP and Democratic resistance in the Senate. Kirk on Saturday said he was "concerned."
