Dem Senator To Cruz: You Should Be More Like McCain, McCain Agrees

Democrat Senator Bill Nelson started his speech in support of Defense Secretary nominee Chuck Hagel by slamming Republican Senator Ted Cruz during the Armed Services Committee hearing today. Senator Nelson said that Cruz’s statements about Hagel were “over the line” and that he should look to Republican Senator John McCain as a “role model” on how to show his opposition and lamented that the committee used to be “known for” its “civility.” Cruz responded to Nelson by claiming he never questioned Hagel’s patriotism but only highlighted troubling gaps of information concerning Hagel’s finances and past. Before the committee could proceed Senator McCain intervened and took the side of Senator Bill Nelson saying that Hagel was an “honorable man” and that no one should question his patriotism or commitment to the country.
