Reid and McConnell chat; no deal imminent

October 14, 2013

Senate leaders engaged in a brief discussion Sunday about a possible fiscal deal to reopen the government and raise the debt ceiling but gave no signal an agreement is imminent.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) said he is still optimistic of an agreement to avoid a federal default and will continue talking with Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (Ky.).

“I have had a productive conversation with [the] Republican leader this afternoon,” Reid said on the Senate floor. “Our discussions were substantive and we’ll continue those discussions.

“I’m optimistic about the prospects for a positive conclusion to the issues before this country today,” he added.

A source with knowledge of the phone conversation said it lasted about five or six minutes. The source said Reid set up the call.
