Senator Rand Paul, along with some Senate allies from both parties, is attempting to secure a last minute vote to prevent an arms deal with Saudi Arabia. The State Department OKed the deal in August, and it includes $1.15 billion in tanks, machine guns and equipment. Paul is using a 1976 law that allows any senator to challenge an arms deal to force a vote. A similar vote on selling F-16s to Pakistan failed to stop the deal, gaining only 24 votes.
