12 GOP Senators Opposed Trump on Border Emergency

(C-SPAN)

By    |   Thursday, 14 March 2019 03:41 PM EDT

A dozen Republicans voted to terminate President Donald Trump's national emergency declaration Thursday, joining their Democratic colleagues to oppose the tactic that freed up money for a border wall.

The final tally was 59-41, which puts it eight votes short of the required number to override a presidential veto.

Trump responded to the vote with a one-word tweet that read, "VETO!"

The full list of GOP senators who voted to overturn the presidential order:

  • Sen. Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn.
  • Sen. Roy Blunt, R-Mo.
  • Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine
  • Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah
  • Sen. Jerry Moran, R-Kan.
  • Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska
  • Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky.
  • Sen. Rob Portman, R-Ohio
  • Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah
  • Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla.
  • Sen. Pat Toomey, R-Pa.
  • Sen. Roger Wicker, R- Miss.
