Eight House Republicans broke ranks and voted with Democrats Wednesday to pass a spending measure to end the partial government shutdown without funding for President Trump's border wall.

Why it matters: The votes by Reps. Brian Fitzpatrick (Pa.), Herrera Beutler (Wash.), Will Hurd (Texas), John Katko (N.Y.), Adam Kinzinger (Ill.), Elise Stefanik (N.Y.), Fred Upton (Mich.) and Greg Walden (Ore.) would reopen agencies including the Treasury Department, Internal Revenue Service and Small Business Administration. The House bill is unlikely to pass the Senate, but the defections suggest the real-life effects of the government shutdown are starting to take a toll on Republicans.
