Wicker Tweet Says No Way for Hagel Nomination

Sen. Roger Wicker Tweeted this weekend that he will strongly oppose Pres. Obama’s nomination of Hagel, who is himself a Republican and has two Purple Hearts from Vietnam.

“#ChuckHagel would be a divisive and disastrous nominee for #SecDef. I will strongly oppose,” read Wicker’s Tweet.

He did not offer an explanation in the Tweet, which had no link. But, other Republicans are opposing Hagel because of what they consider a less than strong stance on Israel.
