Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. has made an appearance at the Capitol for the Senate's procedural vote on Debo P. Adegbile to head the Department of Justice's Civil Rights Division.  

The vote is expected to be extremely close and could require Biden to vote.  

When asked by CQ Roll Call when Biden arrived Wednesday morning if he was there to break a tie, the vice president said, “If I have to.”
