Will Webb Get 60 Votes???
Next week, Webb is reintroducing the measure and The Swamp writes that prospects are looking good for the junior senator. Webb has been urging fence-sitting Republicans to break the stalemate and support the amendment and...he just might succeed.
Howling Latina supports stronger action; but by golly, Webb's measure is a long overdue start!
Webb said he is getting new interest in his measure from some Republicans, including Maine Sen. Olympia Snowe, Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski, and Ohio Sen. George Voinovich.Virginia’s senior senator, Republican John Warner, could be warming to the measure too.
"He has indicated he wants to work with me,” Webb said. "There’s a strong possibility he also will join us.”
H/T Vivian J. Paige; and here's a copy of the amendment.
