Washington (CNN) – Sen. Chuck Schumer said Sunday there is no final agreement on a deal to raise the debt ceiling, but described a mood of "relief" on Capitol Hill.
"If there's a word right here that would sum up the mood, it would be relief, relief that we won't default," the No. 3 Democrat in the Senate said on CNN's "State of the Union." "That's not a certainty but default is far less of a possibility now than it was even a day ago."
