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.”
