The Associated Press reports Senate leaders announced a deal Tuesday that should clear the way for the long-stalled vote on President Barack Obama's attorney general nominee. The agreement aims to solve a dispute over abortion that had delayed passage of a once-popular human trafficking bill for weeks. Attorney General-designate Loretta Lynch has been caught in the middle as Democrats have fumed, with Republican leaders insisting on holding off on her confirmation vote until the trafficking bill was resolved. "I'm glad we can say there is a bipartisan proposal that will allow us to complete action on this important legislation so we can provide help to the victims who desperately need it," said Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky. He said he anticipated a vote on Lynch, who will become the nation's first black female attorney general, "in the next day or so."
