Rep. Dent predicts Boehner to bring pending Senate deal to House floor

Washington (CNN) - With Senate negotiators reportedly close to reaching a deal to reopen the federal government, Rep. Charlie Dent, R-Pennsylvania, told CNN’s Jake Tapper late Tuesday evening that he believes Speaker John Boehner will have no choice but to bypass normal procedures and bring the in-the-works bill to the House floor.

"I believe that John Boehner will likely be in a position where he will have to essentially pass the bill that is negotiated between Sens. McConnell and Reid," Dent said.
