ARIZONA POLITICAL SHORTS: McSally Votes Against Trump Adm Lifting Some Russia Sanctions

4pm: This evening, Arizona Senator Martha McSally joined with the Democrats and 10 of her GOP colleagues to  advance a resolution disapproving of the Trump Administration's December decision to end sanctions against several Russian entities.

The GOP-led Senate first moved to table S.J.Res.2, introduced by Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY). That move failed, 42-57, with both McSally and Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) voting "nay". A motion to proceed to a vote was then held, and all Senators held their same positions.
