McConnell Calls for 1 a.m. Vote

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY)  has called for a vote to end the government shutdown at 1 a.m. on Monday, the Washington Post reports.

McConnell’s plan would keep the government open through February 8 but is unlikely to include any of the concessions Democrats are seeking on immigration.

Politico: “Both sides dug in on Saturday, signaling they were prepared for a longer impasse. Both sides tried to hammer each other on their political messaging. And it was clear that the respective party leaders believed the other had badly misjudged the mood of the country.”
