Two Arizona congressmen had a drama-filled flight back to Washington, D.C., where they voted Friday to pass a $2 trillion coronavirus relief package aimed at helping Americans and businesses impacted by the ongoing pandemic. 

Reps. Ruben Gallego, D-Ariz., and Paul Gosar, R-Ariz., were on a quiet overnight red-eye American Airlines flight when a fellow passenger passed out in the aisle.
