BREAKING: McConnell Memo To GOP Members, "Plan To Stay Through This Weekend"

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R – Ky.) reportedly sent a memo to his fellow Republicans saying they should plan to stay in D.C. through the weekend.

Fox News’ Capitol Hill reporter, Chad Pergram, tweeted: “Colleague Mike Emanuel rpts McConnell sends GOPers memo saying “We should all plan to stay through this weekend if Senate Democrats..are willing to shut down the government..I hope not a single Republican is inclined to join them..We are strongest when we stick together..””

Congress must pass a continuing resolution before midnight on Friday in order to avoid a government shutdown.
