Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said that he thinks that the Keystone XL pipeline measure will pass the needed procedural vote in the Senate Tuesday.
"I don't expect it to fail," Reid said, according to The Hill
However, he also said that he doesn't "know what's going to happen."
The vote over the Keystone pipeline project was scheduled in the Senate for late Tuesday. For the legislation to be filibuster-proof, supporters need 60 senators to vote in favor of it, but they reportedly have 59 senators who are committed to supporting it.
According to the office of the Nevada Democrat, he will be voting against the measure.
The Keystone legislation is being pushed by Louisiana Democrat Sen. Mary Landrieu, who is in a December runoff in the Bayou State and is hoping that advocating for the legislation will increase her odds against her opponent, Rep. Bill Cassidy, who led the Keystone pipeline measure in the House.
"The race is not over in Louisiana," Reid said. "She hasn't given up and we haven't given up on her behalf."
