BREAKING: Effort to Open Debate on Bill to Create January 6 Commission Fails in the Senate – Here are the Republicans Who Voted with Democrats

The GOP finally successfully blocked the Democrats in its first filibuster of the Biden Administration.

The effort to open debate on a bill to create a commission to investigate the January 6 Capitol riot failed in the senate on Friday in a 54-35 vote.

60 votes were needed to move the bill forward.

Here are the 6 Republican senators who voted with the Democrats in favor of a January 6 commission:

  • Collins
  • Murkowski
  • Romney
  • Cassidy
  • Sasse
  • Portman

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer was triggered and feared Friday’s filibuster may be the beginning of a trend of Republicans blocking other bills.
