Lieberman: DADT Repeal Now Has ‘More Than 60’ Votes in Senate
Washington — Sen. Joe Lieberman (I., Conn.) tells NRO that a standalone ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ repeal has enough votes to pass.
“We now have more than 60,” he says in an interview. With the House moving to proceed on such a measure today, Lieberman says the cause has “momentum.” He points out that behind the scenes, the bill has support from a handful of Republicans.
Lieberman adds that he’d like to see DADT brought up right after votes on the tax deal and the continuing resolution to fund the government — “before START,” he says.
