Six Republican senators joined Democrats to support the creation of a January 6 commission.
Sens. Cassidy, Collins, Murkowski, Portman, Romney, and Sasse voted to advance the bill.
Republican opposition blocked the investigation into the Capitol riot.
Six Republican senators joined Democrats to support a bipartisan commission to delve into the January 6 Capitol riot.
The bill, which would have established a panel to investigate the insurrection, failed to pass a procedural vote after Republicans blocked the bill.
The final vote was 54-35, short of the 60 votes needed to move past a Republican filibuster stopping the bill's progress. Ten Republican senators needed to join their Democratic colleagues for the bill to move forward.
These are the Republicans who voted to move forward with the commission:
Bill Cassidy, Louisiana
Susan Collins, Maine
Lisa Murkowski, Alaska
Rob Portman, Ohio
Mitt Romney, Utah
Ben Sasse, Nebraska
Another nine GOP senators didn't vote:
Marsha Blackburn, Tennessee
Roy Blunt, Missouri
Mike Braun, Indiana
Richard Burr, North Carolina
Jim Inhofe, Oklahoma
James Risch, Idaho
Mike Rounds, South Dakota
Richard Shelby, Alabama
Pat Toomey, Pennsylvania
