This week marked the beginning of the United States Senate’s confirmation process for three key Administration positions: Senator John Kerry (D–MA) for Secretary of State, former Senator Chuck Hagel (R–NE) for Secretary of Defense, and White House chief counterterrorism advisor John Brennan for director of the CIA. All three have been prominent backers of President Obama’s foreign and defense policy.

Join us on Friday, January 25 at noon ET as we will host a “Lunch with Heritage” Google+ Hangout to talk about the confirmation process, the nominees, and what people should know about them.
