ROLL CALL – The US Senate voted to send a one-year debt limit suspension to Pres. Barack Obama’s desk Wednesday, after a high-drama cliffhanger ended when Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and Minority Whip John Cornyn, R-Texas,voted “aye” to end a filibuster.

The Senate voted 67-31 to end a filibuster threatened by tea party firebrand Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, in a vote that took nearly an hour to complete as senators wrestled with their decision. The Senate then voted 55-43 to pass the bill with a simple majority threshold.

McConnell and Cornyn voted to cut off debate when the measure appeared stuck just short of the 60 votes needed.
