McConnell Instructs Sergeant at Arms to Collect Absent Senators

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) instructed the Senate Sergeant at Arms to collect absent Senators Monday night.

As could be heard from the roll call, many Senators were not in attendance for whatever McConnell had planned.

Democratic Senators conspired to hold the Senate floor all night Monday before the Senate voted on the nomination of Betsy DeVos for Education Secretary Tuesday.
