Don't Ask, Don't tell repeal fails, Florida senators split votes

A Senate vote to debate ending the military's "don't ask, don't tell" ban on gays failed Thursday to secure the 60 votes required -- delivering a blow to efforts to allow gay troops to serve openly.

The measure fell 3 votes shy with Florida Sen. Bill Nelson backing repeal and Republican Sen. George LeMieux opposing it.
