Senate Democrats have turned back a Republican effort to change — and effectively kill — a new arms control treaty with Russia.

By a vote of 60-32, the Senate rejected an amendment that would have changed the preamble to the treaty to include language on tactical nuclear weapons. The treaty deals with strategic nuclear weapons.Any revision to the treaty would force it back to negotiations, dooming the accord.
