Arizona GOP Members Vote Nay As House Passes Senate Version Of VAWA

All four Arizona Republicans in the House of Representatives voted against reauthorizing the lapsed Violence Against Women Act ("VAWA") this morning.

No Democrats voted against the Senate-passed version, which is now on its way to the desk.  87 Republicans also voted "aye".  Arizona's Reps. Trent Franks, Matt Salmon, David Schweikert, and Paul Gosar voted "nay".

Here is a copy of the roll call.

Gosar and Schweikert also voted against the Republican substitute reauthorization, which failed 166-257.
