Senate short two votes for Hagel's nomination

Posted: Updated:

Republicans have, for now, blocked Chuck Hagel's nomination to become Defense Secretary.

The senate came up two votes short of the 60 needed to move Hagel's nomination forward as lawmakers prepare to leave for a week's break.

Top republicans claim they are not filibustering, they just need more time.
