Rand Paul Filibuster Ends: Senator Spoke For Nearly 13 Hours


Rand Paul has ended his filibuster and Dick Durbin has introduced a cloture motion to end debate on the nomination of John Brennan to the post of CIA director. A cloture motion requires a 60 vote majority. The cloture vote will be held on Thursday morning and the Senate will adjourn until 10 AM on Thursday morning. 

The filibuster lasted just under 13 hours. 

Well that was fun. For a moment I was beginning to think I was going to have to spend all night here. Glad to see I'll be able to get a little shut-eye. Thanks for tuning into this live-blog. I'm out!
