King: Two Thirds of House Republicans Would Support a Clean CR

Representative Peter King (R., N.Y.) tells National Review Online that he thinks House Republicans would like to avoid an impending government shutdown and that he won’t vote for anything other than a clean CR. He also says that many of the Republican members he talks to on the House floor feel largely the same way. 

“If it was on the floor, they would do it,” he says. “Put it this way, two thirds want a clean CR.” 

He adds: “Including some of the people who got elected as tea-party candidates from the South. You talk to them, they think this is crazy.”
