More Republican Senators Will Vote for Budget Deal

"Support for a compromise two-year budget deal grew on Monday ahead of a Tuesday vote in the Senate as Republicans concluded they could not allow a measure that passed the House with overwhelming bipartisan support to die in Congress's upper chamber," the New York Times reports.

The Washington Post notes the deal now appears to have sufficient support to survive a key procedural test vote in the U.S. Senate later this week.
