Republicans sharply divided over timeline for reopening economy

Support is building among Republicans for reopening the economy sooner rather than later, but not all GOP lawmakers are on the same page.

Some conservatives are pushing more aggressive timelines while some moderates adopting a more cautious approach.

Republicans are wrestling with the looming threat of a second wave of coronavirus infections and the more immediate reality of rising unemployment, with 4.4 million more Americans applying for jobless benefits last week.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), Sen. Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) are leading the push for state economies to open quickly so that businesses can resume operations and furloughed workers can get off unemployment.
