The Washington Times is reporting. Reid noted in a conference about the Zika virus that,Â â€œI think weâ€™ve taken a bite out of the NRA. I think theyâ€™ve done enough damage.â€ The threat is still from the bill the squishy Republican are getting behind, essentially the “no-fly, no-buy.”
The measure by Sen. Susan Collins, Maine Republican, attracted 52 votes of support in a procedural vote last week, yet it fell short of the 60 votes needed to overcome a potential filibuster and advance, leaving the effort in limbo.
That doesn’t seem to fit Reid’s optimism. 52 is a good bit shy of 60. But we shouldn’t get cocky.
