    Senate Republicans are set to thwart Majority Leader Chuck Schumer’s bid to start Senate debate Wednesday on a still-unfinished infrastructure plan, but key GOP lawmakers said that the deal is not dead and that they will be ready to move ahead next week.

    Schumer’s decision to force an early test vote Wednesday afternoon spurred a faster pace in protracted talks for a $579 billion infrastructure plan, but not the completed deal that GOP senators are demanding as a prerequisite to begin debate.

    “Today, we are not going to be able to support moving forward,” lead GOP negotiator Rob Portman of Ohio said Wednesday morning on CNBC. “We will be able to on Monday, and I hope that is what the majority leader decides to do — put this vote off until Monday.”

    Utah Senator Mitt Romney, another GOP lawmaker in the talks, said at least 10 Republicans — the number needed to proceed — have committed to voting for the procedural move at the beginning of next week.

    Indiana Republican Todd Young said his commitment is conditional on a deal being done. “If there is sufficient time for me to digest all that is there I think so,” he said of voting yes.
