Vote Scheduled to Change the Filibuster

"The Senate inched closer to an eleventh-hour deal late Monday night in a bid to avert an unprecedented maneuver to change the chamber's rules governing presidential appointees, with nearly all 100 senators spending more than three hours huddled in a rare bipartisan, closed-door caucus," the Washington Post reports.

The New York Times reports senators "were confident that an agreement could be reached Tuesday to defuse the tense partisan standoff, though no deal had been struck in the closed session that went well into the night."

However, Roll Call said senators "left without much optimism that an agreement would be reached by Tuesday morning."

Wonk Wire: Late night meeting produces no deal.
