The South Carolina State Senate voted 37-3 today to remove the Confederate flag from the capitol grounds. It is the second of three votes needed in the Senate before the bill goes to the state House. The final Senate vote is set for Tuesday, according to CNN. Observers suggest that the effort may face a tougher road in the House where powerful legislators, including Speaker Jay Lucas, have not yet said how they will vote.
