US Senate leader delays crucial test vote on Syria

Senate Majority Leader Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) said Monday he is delaying a key procedural vote on authorizing use of force in Syria until President Barack Obama publicly addresses the issue.

“I want to make sure the president (makes) his case to the Senate and the American people before voting on this matter,” Reid said. Obama meets with senators Tuesday and addresses the nation that night, while Reid had earlier planned to hold the test vote Wednesday.
