Hagel Assures NRSC of Re-election Intentions

  • Nebraska: Contrary to rumors that have been swirling, Roll Call is reporting that Republican Chuck Hagel of Nebraska "has assured the National Republican Senatorial Committee that he intends to run for re-election next year." Big hat tip: Leavenworth Street. We'll see if the MSM picks up on this and confirms the story in tomorrow's papers.

    UPDATE (4:44pm): The Lincoln Journal Star reports:

    Despite a story in the Capitol Hill newspaper Roll Call, Sen. Chuck Hagel has not determined his 2008 political plans, his spokesman said Tuesday.

    “Senator Hagel hasn’t made up his mind,” said Mike Buttry. “Those close to him don’t know what he’s going to do.”

    Hagel has indicated he’s likely to make his decision within the next two weeks.
    Stay tuned.
