Hagel Not Withdrawing

Chuck Hagel, "known for his unswerving relentlessness both as a senator and as a soldier, plans to stand fast as President Obama's nominee to head the Pentagon despite a growing GOP effort to defeat him with a rare filibuster," National Journal reports.

Said a spokesperson: "He could be defeated, but he's not withdrawing. It's not something anyone is discussing."

A Senate vote on his nomination faces a 60 vote hurdle and is scheduled for Friday.
