Arizona Representative Martha McSally is giving up her House seat to make a bid for Senate, becoming the latest member of Congress to forego reelection. Here's a running list of all the lawmakers calling it quits.
Immigration isn’t the only sticking point.
Congress missed a midnight deadline to avert a shutdown, with the Senate failing to approve a House-passed bill that would have given lawmakers more time to come to a deal on immigration.
Republicans cobbled together the votes for a funding bill ahead of a Friday-night deadline, but it may be doomed in the Senate.
The administration plans to keep national parks and public lands partially open even without congressional funding, drawing criticism from Sally Jewell, the former secretary of the interior.
For the GOP to stick it to Democrats, it's going to have to stick together first.
With the president fuming, a funding deadline looming, and a DACA deal far off, a climactic confrontation in Congress might be impossible to avoid.
GOP lawmakers had begun working to bring back earmarks to tip the balance of power and grease the legislative wheels. Then President Trump gave them an unexpected boost.
A bipartisan group of six senators have struck an agreement to protect Dreamers and bolster security. But it’s not clear whether it’s enough to win over President Trump or majorities in Congress.
The president let the cameras roll as he negotiated a DACA deal with Congress. True to form, he said yes to everyone but left lawmakers without the direction they sought.
Democrats punted the immigration fight in December, but with another shutdown deadline looming, Dreamer activists are warning them not to do so again.
The defeated Republican filed a last-minute, long-shot lawsuit hoping to halt the certification of Democrat Doug Jones’s victory as the next senator from Alabama. A state judge denied the request.

In party-line votes, the House and Senate passed a far-reaching, $1.5 trillion revision of the tax code, cutting rates for corporations, small businesses, and individuals.
The GOP succeeded in delivering on many of its promises. But the new code, which Congress will vote on this week, will not be as lasting, or as simplified, as they’d hoped.
With late support from Senators Bob Corker and Marco Rubio on a package finalized Friday, the GOP is on the precipice of a major legislative victory next week.
With Republicans already tight on votes, the Florida senator says he’ll oppose the final tax bill if party leaders don’t meet his demands to expand the child tax credit for working families.
Brushing aside attacks from Democrats, GOP negotiators agree on a late change in the tax bill that would reduce the top individual income rate even more than originally planned.
The Democrat’s win in Alabama could scuttle the GOP’s hopes of repealing Obamacare and scaling back safety-net programs. But he probably won’t get to Washington in time to stop the tax bill.
