DADT Breaks Filibuster

JOIN TPM FOR JUST $1

The Senate just voted 63-33 to break the filibuster on the DADT repeal bill.

Late Update: Just so we’re clear. This is not the passage of the actual DADT repeal bill. This is the vote that allows a straight majority vote, which will likely come tomorrow. And since there are many more than 51 votes for repeal, that means that the actual bill will pass tomorrow and likely be signed by the president early next week. This vote means that DADT is history.
