A pitched fight between Democrats and Republicans in the U-S Senate has ended in compromise. Nebraska Senator Deb Fischer, a Republican, says the proposal by majority Democrats to lower the votes needed to change Senate rules would have shut out Republicans from the presidential nominee process.
The so-called “nuclear option” was withdrawn after Democrats and Republicans reached a compromise that will allow presidential nominees to move forward.
Fischer says the rule change would have had an impact not just on the Senate, but on the country. . .
Though a compromise has been reached to allow presidential nominees to move forward, no long-term agreement has been nailed down.
