These 15 Republican Senators Break Filibuster On Gun Control Bill—Final Passage All But Certain
Share this


The Senate voted 65-34 early Thursday afternoon to limit debate on a bipartisan gun control bill, with nearly a third of Republican senators siding with their Democratic colleagues to break the filibuster, setting up a final vote that could come as early as Thursday evening.

Key Facts

Debate time has been capped at 30 hours, setting up a deadline of around 6 p.m. Friday for a final vote, though several senators, including Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), have voiced support for taking up a vote much sooner.

All 50 Democratic senators voted to advance the bill, joined by 15 Republican senators: Roy Blunt (Mo.), Richard Burr (N.C.), Shelley Moore Capito (W.Va.), Bill Cassidy (La.), Susan Collins (Maine), John Cornyn (Texas), Joni Ernst (Iowa), Lindsey Graham (S.C.), Mitch McConnell (Ky.), Lisa Murkowski (Alaska), Rob Portman (Ohio), Mitt Romney (Utah), Thom Tillis (N.C.), Pat Toomey (Pa.) and Todd Young (Ind.).

Fourteen of the Republicans voted “yes” in a procedural vote Tuesday to begin debate—Toomey was not present for the earlier vote.
