WASHINGTON (AP) - Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid says he's getting closer to a deal with Republican leader Mitch McConnell that would increase the nation's borrowing authority and end the 2-week-old government shutdown.
   
Reid made the comments to reporters on Monday after emerging from a meeting with McConnell that lasted just over a half hour.
   
Reid said they would continue to work on it and hoped to have something to present to President Barack Obama at a White House meeting Monday afternoon.
