The Senate approved a stopgap spending bill on Thursday night, ensuring there will be no shutdown days before Christmas and essentially completing a frenetic year on Capitol Hill — and the first under President Trump.
Senators voted 66-32 to approve the roughly four-week continuing resolution (CR), which funds the government through Jan. 19, hours after it passed the House.
Seventeen Democrats voted for the measure, including several up for reelection next year in states carried by Trump such as Sens. Joe Donnelly (Ind.), Claire McCaskill (Mo.) and Joe Manchin (V.Wa.).
But leadership, including Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.), as well as many of the party’s potential 2020 contenders opposed the bill.
