Hagel Planning To Announce?

Most Republican observers believe that U.S. Senator Hagel will announce a bid for the Republican presidential nomination on Monday in Omaha. Some have speculated that he may run as an independent – perhaps with the Unity 08 group attempting to organize a viable third party candidacy.

Attendance is everything

The AWOL Senators Who Are Running for President

Senator Brownback, who is running a pro-values campaign, has been absent for more than 50 percent of the roll call votes this year. Brownback missed all of the votes in the first week of the new Congress. Other Republican Senators running for President: McCain has been very careful and has missed only two votes. Should Senator Hagel decide to run he has missed nine votes this month.
