DISCLOSE Act Heading to Senate Filibuster?

A Roll Call report ($) entitled "Democrats Upbeat on Campaign Finance Bill," says: "Schumer, former Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee chairman and author of the Senate version of the bill, and Reid told House Democratic brass in a bicameral leadership huddle Tuesday that they are committed to forcing a vote on the measure, whether or not it has the support to clear a filibuster, sources familiar with that session said."

As I've said before, I don't see the path to how this clears the Senate, unless, at the very least, a few moderate Republicans agree to come on board (perhaps in exchange for some changes in the bill).
