GOP Reps. Eying Senate Races Flip On CR

March 15, 2011
Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.), one of the most vulnerable first-term members, had come out early against the CR, saying in a statement after the vote that his position shouldn't be seen as a "willingness for a government shutdown," but instead was a protest that a budget needs to be passed. Just six Republicans opposed the first CR -- and Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.) was the only freshman to oppose it twice. With the caucus votes mixed on each side -- 104 Democrats opposed the measure -- even each party's political arm seemed unsure of how to spin the vote. The Democratic leaders in the House split their vote -- with Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi voting against the bill but Minority Whip Steny Hoyer voting for it. The National Republican Congressional Committee sent out a press release hitting 16 vulnerable Democrats who opposed the measure, even as 54 of their own also voted no.
