The effort of Senate Democrats to repeal “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” the ban on gays and lesbians serving openly in the U.S. Armed Forces, has been defeated. A motion requiring 60 votes to end debate failed 56-43.

All Senate Republicans voted against the motion, including three Democrats. Senate Majority Leader, Harry Reid (D-NV) has said the law will likely not come up again until after the midterm elections, set for Nov. 2.
