You’ve got it backwards; a cloture vote *ends* debate, thus allowing a final vote (where the bill can be approved with a simple majority).

I just noticed that the article itself describes the cloture vote as being a vote to “let the debate proceed.” So it was the author who got it backwards, since cloture ends the debate and allows a vote on final passage to proceed.
