The House on Thursday approved a key plank of President Obama's trade agenda after the push nearly imploded amid Democratic resistance last week, sending the bill to the Senate where it still faces an uncertain fate, Fox News reported.

The 218-208 vote nevertheless marked a significant victory for Obama and his pro-trade supporters in both parties. The vote came after Obama huddled Wednesday evening with congressional allies to try to craft a way forward.

The bill would specifically give the president so-called "fast-track" authority to approve trade deals, which Obama wants to seal a 12-nation pact involving Japan and 11 other countries bordering the Pacific Ocean.  --[wp_colorbox_media url="http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2015/06/18/house-oks-obama-trade-agenda-on-2nd-try-heads-to-senate/?intcmp=latestnews" type="iframe" hyperlink="Source"]
