Reid’s Office: There Is No Understanding With Lieberman, But We Hope To Get His Health Care Vote

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.”
