Most Senate Democrats continued on Tuesday to oppose a moratorium on earmarks, despite growing public demands for an end to the practice and a nascent reform movement within their own ranks.

Reformers, including Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.), said that while passing a ban in the next few months may not be in the cards, they nevertheless believe momentum is on their side.

Asked if the earmark ban is facing a now-or-never situation in the Senate, McCaskill said, “I’m not sure that it is ever going to be never. I think it’s only a matter of time.”
