Report: Sen. Minority Leader McConnell gauging GOP interest in short-term CR


From my FNC colleague Kara Rowland:

Politico is reporting that Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell is gauging interest among his caucus to see if there is any appetite for a short-term CR.

McConnell’s office would not confirm that report, with his spokesman only saying: “Despite the Democrats’ refusal to work with the House to solve the problem, Republicans are working to protect the troops, prevent a shutdown and find solutions to the difficulties caused by Senate Democrats’ delays”
