U.S. Sen. Raphael Warnock

U.S. Senator Raphael Warnock, D-Ga., and other Senate Democrats blocked a surprise move by Senate Republicans on Tuesday to force a vote on aid for Israel in its war against the Hamas terrorists that control Gaza. It was an aid package that Democrats have been using to leverage U.S. House of Representatives support for more military aid to Ukraine.

U.S. Sen. Roger Marshall, R-Kan., moved for the Senate to proceed to the emergency spending bill when there was no other business on the floor. But Warnock immediately called for a quorum call to stall the Israel aid vote while the rest of his party could discuss its next move to foil the Republicans.
