Comment: they are delaying the vote

they are delaying the vote

they are delaying the vote (of John Brenner to be CIA Director) by refusing to stop talking. Rand has the floor and he hasn't yielded since 11:30 this morning.

The US senate does not have a rules committee to set debate time and limits and must have a "cloture vote" of 60 senators, I believe, in order to bring a vote to the floor.
