House Democrats on Tuesday failed to garner the two-thirds majority needed to pass a continuing resolution (CR) to provide funding to reopen the government through Feb. 1.

The bill, which went down 237-187, was brought to the floor in an effort to pressure GOP lawmakers to break with President Trump in his demand for border wall funding amid the partial government shutdown.

The article goes on to state the following:

Six Republicans — Reps. Elise Stefanik (N.Y.), Will Hurd (Texas), John Katko (N.Y.), Chris Smith (N.J.), Jamie Herrera Buetler (Wash.) and Brian FitzPatrick (Pa.) — joined Democrats in voting for the measure, fewer than backed similar legislation last week.

House Appropriations Chairwoman Nita Lowey (D-N.Y.) introduced the measure on Monday along with a separate stopgap that would provide funding through Feb. 28, which is expected to come to the floor on Thursday.

The first CR’s failure comes on the 25th day of the shutdown as Democratic leaders remain at odds with Republicans over Trump’s border wall.
