Undecided Senators to Huddle Today

The remaining Democratic senators who have yet to pick a side in the party's presidential nomination fight will meet this afternoon at the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee's headquarters on Capitol Hill to plot strategy for the coming days, according to Democratic sources.

The gathering was put together by Sens. Ken Salazar (Colo.) and Tom Harkin (Iowa), neither of whom has publicly endorsed a candidate. Roughly a dozen other Democratic Senators are also in that category, plus Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (Nev.), who is avowedly neutral but has been in discussions with Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) over how to bring the contest to a close soon. It is not clear yet how many Senators will attend the meeting at the DSCC, since the chamber is not expected to vote until later today.

CNN reported today that "most" of the currently uncommitted Senators will endorse Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) after tomorrow's primaries, though the network did not give any further details.
