Harry Reid Breaking News: Majority Leader: Senate Deal Near on Nominations

Negotiations over the weekend failed to produce a compromise that would keep Senate Democrats from moving forward with the so-called nuclear option to change how the filibuster is used. The U.S. Senate's top Democrat Harry Reid and top Republican Mitch McConnell yielded no ground as they neared a showdown over President Barack Obama's executive-branch nominees that could dramatically change how the Senate operates.
