BREAKING: Rep. Schweikert Joins Dems To Pass Resolution Ending Hostilities With Iran (ARIZONA'S POLITICAL SHORTS)

4:00pm: Arizona Rep. David Schweikert (R-CD6) joined 5 other Republicans and most Democrats this afternoon in passing a resolution requiring President Donald Trump to get approval from Congress before engaging in further hostilities with Iran. The measure goes to the President's desk
for an expected veto.

The resolution passed the House, 227-186. The rest of Arizona's delegation voted along party lines. (Rep. Gosar is in his house in self-quarantine.) Last month in the Senate, Arizona Senators Kyrsten Sinema and Martha McSally also voted along party lines as it passed, 55-45.  Neither vote indicates an ability to override a veto.

Rep. Schweikert has not yet commented on his "aye" vote.

Here is the text of the resolution.
