‘Squad’ Democ­rats join the rest of Con­gress in con­demn­ing Oct. 7 Hamas attack

Near­ly all of the House “Squad” Democ­rats vot­ed with the rest of Con­gress to con­demn Hamas’s Oct. 7 attack against Israel and demand the imme­di­ate release of all hostages held by the group.
Rep. Cori Bush (D‑MO) was the only mem­ber of the Squad not to vote, though nine oth­er Democ­rats and 10 oth­er Repub­li­cans did­n’t vote either. All 414 vot­ing mem­bers of Con­gress vot­ed in favor of the mea­sure.
