Arizona's McCain, Flake Vote "Nay" On Moving Forward With Senate's Plan To Extend Unemployment Benefits

Arizona's two U.S. Senators, Jeff Flake and John McCain were not among the group of six Republicans who voted this morning to move forward with debate on the Senate's plan to extend unemployment insurance benefits.  Democrats received just enough GOP votes (from Sens. Ayotte, Coats, Collins, Heller, Murkowski, Portman) to reach the 60 votes for cloture.

Debate on the $6.5 billion package resumes momentarily, and may be watched on C-Span 2.
