Twenty-six Republicans recently made the rare move to cross the aisle and support at least one member of the opposite party.
The senators released a statement saying that they support House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for stopping in Taiwan during her diplomatic trip to Asia.
“We support Speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi’s trip to Taiwan,” the Republicans said.
“For decades, members of the United States Congress, including previous Speakers of the House, have traveled to Taiwan. This travel is consistent with the United States’ One China policy to which we are committed. We are also committed now, more than ever, to all elements of the Taiwan Relations Act.”
The two senators that led the statement were Kevin Cramer of North Dakota and Dan Sullivan of Alaska.
They were joined by Mitch McConnell, John Thune, Jim Inhofe, Jim Risch, Roy Blunt, John Cornyn, John Barrasso, Ben Sasse, Marsha Blackburn, Thom Tillis, Tommy Tuberville, Steve Daines, Susan COllins, Deb Fischer, Todd Young, Joni Ernst, Rob Portman, Shelley Moore Capito, Mike Crap, Richard Burr, John Boozman, Tim Scott, Chuck Grassley, and Pat Toomey.
