WASHINGTON--Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), discussing trying again to pass a gun-control measure in the Senate, said Sunday on CNN the backers need to find five more votes, but "we can do this."
"What we need to see is a change in political sentiment within the Senate. We need to pick up five more votes, and that's quite a task, I might add, as whip in the Senate, but we can do this. I hope the American people don't give up. I know the president hasn't given up," Durbin told CNN's "State of the Union" host Candy Crowley, speaking from Chicago
