Partial government shutdown looms

When the clock strikes midnight on Friday, we could be looking at a partial government shutdown. 

The president wants $5 billion for the wall along the southern border with Mexico, but he does not have the votes from the Republican-led Congress to support it. Democrats are offering to continue funding at current levels, $1.3 billion, not for the wall but for fencing and border security.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's wouldn't comment on whether the GOP and the president have come up with a plan to not shut the government down. 

"We need to make a substantial investment in the integrity of our border," McConnell said. "And we need to close out the year's appropriation process."

Will there be a partial government shutdown?
