The Senate Armed Services Committee is getting ready to vote on Chuck Hagel's nomination for Defense Secretary. Committee Chair Senator Carl Levin scheduled the vote for Tuesday afternoon.
Despite a contentious nomination hearing, the former Republican Senator from Nebraska is expected to win confirmation.
Democrats hold a two-vote majority on the committee, 14-to-12.
Hagel has come under fire by members of his own party for comments he made on Israel and opposing sanctions against Iran while a senator.
