Vulnerable Senate Democrats appear poised to back the two-year budget deal approved by the House.

“I am encouraged that a budget agreement has been reached between the leaders so we can move past governing from crisis to crisis,” Landrieu said in a statement Thursday to The Hill. She told reporters on Friday she would vote for the bill.

Two other red-state Democrats facing tough reelection battles have yet to say how they’ll vote. Sen. Kay HaganKay HaganLinking repatriation to job creation Former Sen.

Asked if every Senate Democrat would vote for it, Reid said, "Yeah, we'll get our votes."

Voting for the bill appears to be a low-risk proposition for red-state Democrats following a big, bipartisan vote in the House, and supporting the plan could even help them in 2014.

“Though the bipartisan budget bill isn’t the exact budget I would have crafted, I will support this measure because it represents the kind of compromise we need more of in Washington and will prevent another government shutdown,” she said in a statement to The Hill.

“Our most important priority right now ought to be jobs, and passing this budget will provide certainty for small businesses and boost economic growth.”

Passing the two-year budget also means Senate Democrats won’t face potentially tough votes on between now and the election.

Republicans in tough Senate races, on the other hand, are shunning the bill.
