Republican Sen. Scott Brown says Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan has persuaded him that she supports the military, despite her decision as dean of Harvard Law School to ban its recruiters from campus.

The first-termer from Massachusetts says he asked Kagan about the recruitment flap, and her answer made it clear that she backs the military. He says he doesn't feel her judicial philosophy would hurt those who serve in the armed forces.

Kagan barred recruiters from campus because she disagreed with the military's "don't ask, don't tell" policy on gay soldiers. The move has drawn fire from many Republicans.

Kagan met privately with Brown as she prepared to wrap up a day of Capitol Hill meetings.
