Cornyn spoke with reporters after a press conference with a handful of Senate Republicans who pressed for legislation rolled out Tuesday that would cut off federal money for Planned Parenthood and redirect the funding to other women's health groups. 
 
 
Asked about Cornyn's timeline, a spokesperson for McConnell said that a Monday vote on defunding Planned Parenthood was "possible," but no vote has been scheduled yet. 
 
Republicans have renewed their push to defund the agency in the wake of a string of controversial, hidden-camera videos. The third, released Tuesday, appeared to show a Planned Parenthood official in Colorado negotiating with someone posing as a buyer of fetal tissue. 
 
Senate Republicans could face an uphill battle to get the support needed to pass their legislation. Democrats are disavowing the bill, calling it an attack on women's health. Meanwhile Sen.

The push to defund the organization could also put a handful of Senate Republicans running for reelection next year in blue-leaning states in a tough spot.
