Opposing Hagel: It’s Crunch Time

By David French1361572015000

The fight against Chuck Hagel’s nomination is entering a critical phase.  Yesterday, writing on Fox News’ website, Jay highlighted how Senator Hagel was calling for increased cooperation with Iran just weeks after an Iranian-coordinated attack on American troops in Iraq.  In other words, Senator Hagel was calling for engagement with Iran even as Iran was committing acts of war against the U.S.

With a vote scheduled as early as next week, fifteen Republican senators wrote President Obama asking that he withdraw Senator Hagel’s nomination.  The tidal wave of grassroots opposition to Senator Hagel has already led to a filibuster and to Senator Hagel being questioned more than any defense nominee in recent memory, but several senators are now wavering.  

We’re urging our readers to use the “Contact Congress” function on our website to directly contact your Senators.  Your petition signatures have slowed his nomination and helped empower a so-far successful filibuster; now it’s crunch time.  Personal contact could make the difference.
