WASHINGTON — (Live video below on the Senate floor) — Senators are debating the short-term funding bill passed by the House last night. If the bill fails, it will trigger a government shutdown just before the Christmas holiday. The Senate is being held open as more Senators fly into DC to cast their votes. Senate leaders will announce a potential path to break border wall impasse and avoid shutdown, Sen. Corker says.
Update: They’ve voted to get the bill to the floor tomorrow. Democrat Doug Jones joined voting yes and Pence voted. It likely will get some amendment added on tomorrow to get more votes and more people are flying back in to vote.
