McCain Throws Cruz Under Bus During Hagel Hearing

McCain Throws Cruz Under Bus During Hagel Hearing

Senator Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) not-so-ambiguously chided his colleague today in the Armed Services Committee. Senator Sen. Bill Nelson (D-FL) leveled a charge at Senator Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) saying that he questioned the patriotism of Secretary of Defense Nominee Chuck Hagel during his rejection statement. Nelson said that Cruz should be more like Senator McCain in his objections to Cruz. After Senator Cruz responded to the charges McCain stepped in and sided with Democrat Senator Bill Nelson over his Republican colleague by stating that Hagel was an “honorable man” whose “character or his integrity” should be questioned by “no one.”
