GOP demands delay vote on spending, Ukraine aid

Senate leaders are navigating demands from GOP senators that could slow down passage of a sweeping bill that funds the government and provides $13.6 billion in Ukraine-related aid.

Members of GOP leadership say they are still hopeful that the Senate could pass the $1.5 trillion government funding deal, which also includes the Ukraine assistance, later Thursday. But first they need to cut deals with GOP senators who are warning that they could slow down the massive legislation, which was introduced early Wednesday morning.
