Des Moines, IA – Noted conservative C4 group, The American Future Fund, has launched a national multi-media advocacy campaign today called “Hagel No.” It is the premier effort in opposition to the nomination of former Senator Chuck Hagel to be Secretary of Defense. The well-funded effort is the first major issue campaign undertaken by any major C4 since this Congress was sworn in signaling a major battle over the controversial nomination.

Nick Ryan, Founder of the American Future Fund, said: “The American Future Fund strongly opposes the nomination of Chuck Hagel for Secretary of Defense. He has a pattern of unethical behavior; failing to disclose assets and trading favors with industries the American people trusted him his weak opposition to the Iranian nuclear threat, but also his to be disclosed personal, business and ethical conflicts. The “Hagel No” campaign will encompass national and state-specific media, as well as a corresponding online campaign in opposition to the Hagel nomination.

Additional releases in the coming days will detail specific “Hagel No” initiatives.
