Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s office is denying reports of any understanding with Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-CT), that Lieberman would vote for cloture on health care.
Reid spokesman Jim Manley told us: “There is no such understanding. We hope to have his vote in the end but we are not there yet.”
A leadership aide also told us: “Senator Reid is speaking with Senator Lieberman and all members of his Caucus. To say that there is some ‘understanding’ about votes at the end of the process is preposterous.”
