John Katko voted with House Democrats on Tuesday in a bid to override President Donald Trump's veto of legislation that would have blocked his declaration of a national emergency at the southern border.
The House fell short of the two-thirds majority vote needed Tuesday, meaning that the President's veto is sustained.
House Democrats had hoped the strong showing of GOP support in the Senate might prompt more Republicans to support the veto override than had initially voted for the resolution.
Only 14 Republicans joined Democrats to vote to overrule the president.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo saying on March 4 he was hopeful he could send a team to North Korea "in the next couple of weeks". They added that Pyongyang "will not mind the South remaining in the office", according to South Korea's Unification Ministry.
Trump says public should see 'ridiculous' Mueller report
There has been increasing speculation that Mueller has almost completed his investigation. Rosenstein appointed Mueller , a former FBI director, to conduct the investigation.
"Whether we can succeed with the number of votes is not the point", Pelosi said at an event in NY.
Pelosi had called on lawmakers from both parties to pass the resolution to prevent the president from circumventing Congress's constitutional authority over spending. On top of the $3.6 billion from construction, the Pentagon has formally informed Congress that it wants to steer another $1 billion from personnel accounts to barriers instead.
"President Trump can't take taxpayer dollars to build his wall without Congress's permission", California Attorney General Xavier Becerra, a former congressman who has filed a lawsuit to block Trump's declaration, said following the vote.
After Congress signed an appropriations bill earlier this year that only approved $1.4 billion for border security, Trump declared a national emergency to appropriate additional funds to construct his wall along the U.S. -Mexico border. But Democratic Representative Adam Smith, the Armed Services Committee's chairman, said Tuesday the panel did not approve the proposed use of Pentagon funds.
Fourteen Republicans, a mix of conservatives plus moderates from swing districts, joined all voting Democrats in favor of the override.
This year, Trump sought $5.7 billion in wall funding.
The House easily passed the resolution of disapproval in February. Mr. Trump tweeted on Tuesday.
This month, the GOP-led Senate rebuked Trump with a 59-41 vote blocking his declaration after the failure of a Republican effort to reach a compromise with the White House.
If the House vote fails, the Senate won't attempt its own override and the veto will stand.
