Senate to vote on 'don't ask' Saturday

The Senate will vote Saturday on a bill that would repeal the “don't ask, don't tell” ban on gays serving openly in the military.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Reid, put in motion the procedural maneuver that will allow lawmakers to vote to end debate on the measure on Saturday, which will require 60 votes. Final passage could come on Sunday.

Senate proponents of the repeal say they have the 60 votes needed to pass the bill. Among the Republicans who plan to vote for it are Sens. List Murkowski, of Alaska, Scott Brown of Massachusetts, Susan Collins and Olympia Snowe both of Maine and Richard Lugar of Indiana.
