WHIP LIST: How senators will vote on Keystone XL pipeline

Senate fault lines on the Keystone XL oil sands pipeline appear set as lawmakers move to a final vote on authorizing the controversial energy project.

The upper chamber is expected to approve the bill but fall short of the 67 votes needed to override President Obama’s threatened veto.

Sixty-three senators — the entire 54-member GOP conference and nine Democrats — are widely expected to vote in favor of building the pipeline.

Thirty-five Democrats and two independents who caucus with the party are widely expected to oppose it.

Within those 37 "no" votes, there are perhaps four members who could switch sides. Few believe they will, but the numbers bear watching as the debate continues.

Here is where senators stand:
