Support falters for the 'nuclear option'
Support falters for the 'nuclear option' - The Washington Times: Nation/Politics - March 23, 2005: "Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist does not have firm support among his caucus to employ the so-called 'nuclear option' for dislodging the Democratic filibusters against President Bush's judicial nominees.
Of the 55 Republicans in the chamber, at least six are undecided or adamantly opposed to the plan of using the rare parliamentary procedure to end the filibusters with a simple majority vote, rather than the 60 votes normally required."
