By: Heidi Przybyla and James Rowley

Two U.S. senators have reached a bipartisan compromise to expand background checks of U.S. firearms purchasers that they plan to announce later today, according to a Senate aide.

Senator Joe Manchin, a West Virginia Democrat, said yesterday that he was close to a deal with Pat Toomey, a Pennsylvania Republican whose support could prove critical to saving the centerpiece of President Barack Obama’s gun agenda from defeat.

Manchin and Toomey plan to hold a news briefing at 11 a.m. today in Washington.

After they hold their meeting they’ll retire to the Senate cloakroom in order to make out.
