Democrats: Where was sponsor Sen. Roy Blunt during Zika negotiations?

They accuse Blunt of skipping crucial negotiations to make time for two fundraisers the same night that Republicans filed a final version of the bill. But Republicans say Blunt wasn’t expected to be present at that point and that Democrats are misrepresenting the timeline of events and how such deals work on Capitol Hill.
