Senate Democratic and Republican leadership aides are offering similar predictions of what tonight's final vote on the $700 billion financial plan will look like: Expect a number around 70 votes.

GOP aides say a majority of the Senate's 49 Republicans -- probably around 30 -- will vote for the bill, and Democratic aides expect slight more, about 40, from their side.

Seventy votes would easily exceed the 60-vote threshold necessary for passage according to a consent agreement hammered out Tuesday between Majority Leader Harry ReidHarry ReidBill O'Reilly: Politics helped kill Kate Steinle, Zarate just pulled the trigger Tax reform is nightmare Déjà vu for Puerto Rico Ex-Obama and Reid staffers: McConnell would pretend to be busy to avoid meeting with Obama MORE (D-Nev.) and Minority Leader Mitch McConnellAddison (Mitch) Mitchell McConnellGOP strategist donates to Alabama Democrat McConnell names Senate GOP tax conferees Brent Budowsky: A plea to Alabama voters MORE (R-Ky.)
