Texas rep predicts bailout passage

Texas Congressman Randy Neugebauer is predicting the House will pass the latest $700 billion economic bailout plan.

The Republican who represents Lubbock has been meeting with the rest of the House GOP Caucus before the House vote later Friday. He says it appears some Republicans are switching votes, and it's his gut feeling the bill will pass. Neugebauer voted against the bill the first time and says he's not switching his vote.

However, Republican leaders after the meeting were more cautious, saying they are optimistic but there's still work to do.
