Conservative Senate Republicans To Hold Press Conference On Debt Ceiling


A group of conservative Senate Republicans including Senators Rand Paul (R-KY), Mike Lee (R-UT), Rick Scott (R-FL), Ted Cruz (R-TX), Mike Braun (R-IN), and Ron Johnson (R-WI) are shortly due to hold a press conference on the debt ceiling negotiations.

  • Livestream:
  • Senator Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) told reporters yesterday that any solution to the debt ceiling standoff would have to come from House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) as any legislation to achieve 60 votes in the Senate would be unlikely to "pass this particular House."
  • Focus will be on to what extent fiscally conservative Senate Republicans will be willing to support attempts by House Republicans to push negotiations to the edge of a default.
  • The majority of the Senate, including the GOP, is seen as more inclined to approve a debt ceiling increase and the facilitation of increased defence spending.
