Spokespeople for many of the senators — including New Jersey’s Cory Booker, Ohio’s Sherrod Brown, Washington state’s Patty Murray, Colorado’s Michael Bennet, Michigan’s Debbie Stabenow, California’s Kamala Harris, Oregon’s Jeff Merkley and Pennsylvania’s Bob Casey — told CNN that the lawmakers stood by their original comments urging Franken to step aside.

“I think we did what we did, and we need to move on now,” Sen. Gary Peters, D-Michigan, said Monday night.

Sen. Jon Tester, D-Montana, said he had no regrets. “With the circumstances that happened, I’m still comfortable with the decision we made.”
