The good news is the Dems still don’t have 60 votes, the bad news is they’re only two or three short.
The Senate will vote Wednesday afternoon on what could be the biggest change in U.S. gun laws in nearly two years.
Senators will take up the bipartisan proposal from Sens. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) and Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) to expand background checks on firearm purchases and close the so-called gun show loophole at 4 p.m.
It will require 60 votes to pass, and the White House and Democrats still lack the final votes they need.
