This, with no end in sight to the federal government shutdown. Their goal: Draw a contrast with their prospective presidential challengers serving in Congress who have sided with a vocal band of Republicans whose demands that Congress defund the health care law helped trigger the shutdown. The fissures within the ranks of the possible GOP presidential candidates illustrate a broader party split.
