The showdown over Senator Jeff Sessions nomination to become Attorney General comes to a close with an expected vote this evening. Senator Dick Durbin will vote no. He rejects the notion that Senate Democrats should get out of the way of Cabinet nominees based on the outcome of the election.



Durbin continues to question Sessions independence.



Durbin says voting against Sessions and speaking out against his nomination is difficult because of a long working relationship with him in the Senate.
