Senate Dems say they have the votes to end Wall Street debate

Senate Democrats have the votes necessary to cut off debate Thursday on a sprawling Wall Street overhaul package, a leadership aide said.

The Senate is set to vote at 2:30 p.m. on a cloture motion to end debate on the measure. The Senate voted, 57-42, on Wednesday against ending debate. The motion requires 60 votes to pass.

With an end to debate, the Senate can move to a final vote on the measure in the next few days.
