4 of Arizona's 9 Representatives Vote Against Party On 2-Week Spending Bill

Nearly half  of Arizona's Congressional delegation switched sides on today's vote to keep the government open for business for the next two weeks. Republican Reps. Andy Biggs (CD5) and Paul Gosar (CD4) voted against the measure, while Democrats Kyrsten Sinema (CD9-running-for-Senate) and Tom O'Halleran (CD1) voted with the majority. (14 Dems and 18 Republicans switched, total.)

The measure passed the House, 235-193 and then passed the Senate 81-14. It heads to President Donald Trump's desk for signature. It keeps the government funded through the 22nd.
