Politics: Cloture passes on Alito nomination

C-SPAN reports that the vote just tallied up was 72-25 to end debate on Alito nomination. Confirmation vote is expected Tuesday morning.

C-SPAN's tally has 57 YES, 36 NO, 7 UNKNOWN.

The Democrats will be pretty solidly against the nomination but it seems only 1/2 of them were willing to go on record as supporting a fillibuster.
