Port of Call, Part Duh

By on 2.22.06 | 9:31AM

Interesting to see how quickly Sen. Rick Santorum jumped on board to block the U.S. ports deal that Senate Leader Bill Frist jumpstarted yesterday.

In speaking with folks up on the Hill last night, we found they are unsure if they will be able to reach the numbers necessary to override, but they believe that Frist's move certainly helped them gain some traction against the White House.

We're still hearing that the consultant angle is something folks should be looking at related to the two companies that are trying to swing this deal in London. Perhaps a Senate committee with oversight should begin looking into that facet of the deal.
