The federal government is once again open for business after Democrats cross aisle to vote with Republicans to keep the lights on in the nation’s capital.

The entire Florida congressional delegation voting along their respective party lines, expect for two of its members, Reps. Stephanie Murphy and Charlie Crist.

Murphy released a YouTube video announcing her support for the Continuing Resolution, saying that her “Yea” vote was “not to assign blame,” rather it was about “getting things done.”

Crist could not be reached for comment, nor has he posted anything on his social media network regarding his vote.

The final House vote on the CR was 260-150.
