The bipartisan resolution to block the $110 billion U.S. arms deal with Saudi Arabia didn't pass. The final vote was 53-47, and now the arms deal will be moving forward after a narrow win, per the AP. More on the specifics of the arms deal here.

The winners: The Trump administration, Saudi Arabia, and some members of the GOP, such as Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who claims this deal will help Saudi Arabia fight ISIS and serve as a check on Iran.

The losers: Dems and Republicans alike, such as Chris Murphy and Rand Paul who sponsored the bill, who fear this deal will hurt civilians. (The Saudi-led coalition, backed by the U.S., has been launching airstrikes in Yemen since 2015, with civilians caught in the fire.)

Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards (D) declared a state of emergency Monday as Zeta strengthened into a hurricane and threatened Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula as it moved towards the U.S. Gulf Coast.
