Although Nebraska Senator Mike Johanns, a Republican, considers Republican Chuck Hagel a friend, there’s no guarantee Hagel will get Johanns’ vote to be the next Secretary of Defense.
Only minutes before President Obama officially nominated Hagel, Johanns told Nebraska Watchdog that Hagel—who has been tarred by some as anti-Israel—needs to “make the case” that he’s the right one for the job.
Johanns says if the Senate voted today Hagel would lose but Johanns notes that could change.
According to Johanns he’s “open minded.”
