Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R., Ala.) said Monday she is “uncertain” about supporting defense secretary nominee Chuck Hagel.
Murkowski was asked about Hagel at the conclusion of an event unveiling her large-scale energy policy proposal:
REPORTER: Are you (unclear) for defense secretary?
MURKOWSKI: I am not certain, how’s that?
REPORTER: Even after the hearing? What more do you need to know after the hearing? (unclear)
MURKOWSKI: I’m doing energy right now. I’m focused totally on energy. But I’m uncertain, I can give you that much, how about?
Earlier during the appearance, Murkowski declined to answer a question about Hagel.
