WASHINGTON — Sen. Deb Fischer said Thursday that while she will vote against Chuck Hagel's nomination to be defense secretary, she has no plans to filibuster him.
The Nebraska Republican's comments are in line with those by other GOP senators who have noted that whatever their concerns about Hagel's policy positions or ability, it would be highly irregular to filibuster a Cabinet nominee.
