Democratic Sen. Ron Wyden Joins Rand Paul for Historic Bipartisan Filibuster Over Drone Strikes

Democratic Sen. Ron Wyden Joins Rand Paul for Historic Bipartisan Filibuster Over Drone Strikes 06 Mar 2013 Sen. Rand Paul's (R-KY) filibuster of John Brennan's CIA nomination just became a bipartisan affair: Sen. Ron Wyden (D-OR) announced he will join the effort to protest the Obama pick's appointment by railing against executive overreach on targeted killings. Several hours into his filibuster effort, Paul's Republican colleagues in Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) joined him on the Senate floor. But it took nearly four hours for a Democrat to surprise everyone and make the filibuster a bipartisan one.
