Note below from FNC CHAD PERGRAM:
Urgent: Reid on Syria: I think we’re going to get 60 votes. It’s a work in progress.
Per Pergram-Capitol Hill
Off-cam after brief Senate session with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) on Syria.
I think we’re going to get 60 votes. It’s a work in progress.
* Keep in mind, 60 votes is probably going to be required to clear one or more procedrual hurdles to actually debate the Syria resolution next week. A procedural vote requring 60 yeas…just to proceed to the actual resolution would probably come next Wednesday if there is an objection or filibuster on Monday. Senior aides say the Senate is expecting to have to get 60…which is why Reid called the Senate into session today to get the wheels in motion.
I just got off the phone with one member. Said he had been to three briefings this week. Said I learn something new at every one.
* Reid says the international community doesn’t agree on much. But it did after the use of chemical weapons during World War I.
If this doesn’t call for a response, I don’t know what does.
