Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) was a no-show Thursday to vote on an amendment commending the U.S. armed forces and intelligence community for the strike that killed top Iranian general Qassem Soleimani.
Sanders was one of only two senators to skip the vote, with Ed Markey (D., Mass.) also absent. Sanders's fellow 2020 presidential candidates in the Senate, Amy Klobuchar (D., Minn.) and Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.), attended and voted "nay" on the amendment, which passed 64 to 34.
Republicans - Democrats - Independent - Angus - King
All 53 Republicans, 10 Democrats, and Independent Angus King (Maine) supported the amendment introduced by Sen. Ted Cruz (R., Tex.). It expressly praised President Donald Trump, who ordered the Jan. 3 strike that took out the terrorist leader of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps.
