McConnell Wants Unanimous Vote for NATO

“Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) spoke in support of Finland’s and Sweden’s bids to join NATO in advance of a Senate vote later in the day expected to have broad, but not unanimous, support,” The Hill reports.

Said McConnell: “If any senator is looking for a defensible excuse to vote ‘no,’ I wish them good luck. This is a slam dunk for national security that deserves unanimous bipartisan support.”

Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) has already said he would vote against their accession.
