Seems 16 of them are willing to give up the time they usually spend smooching their constituents. Sen. David Perdue (R-Ga.) organized a news conference Tuesday to highlight a letter he and 15 other Republicans sent to McConnell. They want McConnell to keep the Senate in session on nights and weekends — and even cancel the August recess, if necessary — to break Democratic obstructionism. IN addition to Perdue, also signing the letter were Senate Republicans Joni Ernst (Iowa), James Lankford (Okla.), Ted Cruz (Tex.), Dean Heller (Nev.), Mike Lee (Utah), Ron Johnson (Wis.), Bill Cassidy (La.), Roger Wicker (Miss.), Steve Daines (Mont.), Deb Fischer (Neb.), Dan Sullivan (Alaska), Ben Sasse (Neb.), Thom Tillis (N.C.), John Neely Kennedy (La.) and Mike Rounds (S.D.). Will McConnell go along with it? The Dims will scream and holler as they’re vulnerable in the mid-terms. 26 of them are facing re-election and need to spend time – and lots of $$$ - back home. Losing just a few seats could really swing the Senaye to a bigger GOP majority. More @ GOP Senators Have Fix to End Logjam — Work More Hours!
