Reid and McConnell Sparring on Senate Floor
Reid Offers Up-or-Down Vote on Warner, McCain, Gregg
02/05/2007 5:47 PM ET
Today's Iraq debate is winding down and it looks like things have reached a stalemate.

Majority leader Reid agreed to allow the Warner-Levin, McCain-Lieberman, and Gregg resolutions on the floor for an up-or-down vote, or alternately the first two for a 3/5 majority.

This wasn't enough for the Republicans, who are insisting that the Gregg resolution also be held to a 60-vote standard.

Thus, the Senate still has to vote on whether or not to allow the debate to proceed.

Vote will be completed in a few minutes. Stay tuned....
