Will Rand Paul filibuster Syria authorization?

'I can't imagine that we won't require 60 votes on this'

(DAILY CALLER) Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul has been highly critical of the Obama administration’s stance on Syria, but will he launch another filibuster to block a military strike?

During a conference call after Tuesday’s Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing, Paul told reporters he was undecided.

“I can’t imagine that we won’t require 60 votes on this,” Paul said. “Whether there’s an actual standing filibuster — I gotta check my shoes and check my ability to hold my water, and we’ll see. I haven’t made a decision on that.”
