Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) heads to the Senate floor after a meeting with fellow Democrats on Capitol Hill in Washington, Jan. 19, 2018. Senate Democrats on Friday night blocked passage of a month-long stopgap spending bill to keep the government funded, leaving only a few hours to find a path forward before much of the government was set to shut down after midnight.
