In a series of missives sent out successively on his Twitter feed Tuesday, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) once again raised concerns about defense secretary nominee Chuck Hagel, saying he hopes the Obama administration will "reconsider" the nomination.
Chuck Hagel is a good man, but these are dangerous times.— Lindsey Graham (@GrahamBlog) February 5, 2013
What kind of signal are we sending to the Iranians when our nominee for Secretary of Defense seems clueless about what our policy is?— Lindsey Graham (@GrahamBlog) February 5, 2013
I hope the Obama Administration will reconsider the Hagel nomination— Lindsey Graham (@GrahamBlog) February 5, 2013
The tweets were drawn from a statement released by Graham's office on Tuesday. Graham was one of the toughest questioners during Hagel's confirmation hearing last week. During an appearance on Fox News on Monday night, the senior South Carolina senator said he found the hearing "disturbing."
