In a video posted online by a progressive group, Sen. Chris Dodd (D-CT) said he would support passing a public option via reconciliation.

Asked if he’d vote yes on a reconciliation measure to pass a public option, Dodd said, “Oh sure. I’ve been for it.”

Dodd’s office confirmed the comments to TPMDC.

Thirty-some senators have declared their support for passing a public option using the budget reconciliation process, which requires 50 votes to pass.
