Just six Republican Senators joined Democrats to support a bipartisan commission to delve into the Capitol riot on Jan. 6. 

The bill, which would have established a panel to investigate the insurrection, failed to pass a procedural vote after Republicans blocked the bill.

The final vote was 54-35, short of the 60 votes needed to move past a Republican filibuster stopping the bill’s progress. 10 Republican senators needed to join their Democratic colleagues for the bill to move forward.

These are the Republicans who voted to move forward with the commission:

  • Ben Sasse – Nebraska
  • Bill Cassidy – Louisiana
  • Rob Portman – Ohio
  • Lisa Murkowski – Alaska
  • Susan Collins – Maine
  • Mitt Romney – Utah

Another 10 GOP senators didn’t vote:

  • Marsha Blackburn
  • Roy Blunt
  • Mike Braun
  • Richard Burr
  • Jim Inhofe
  • Mike Rounds
  • James Risch
  • Richard Shelby
  • Pat Toomey
