The West Front of the US Capitol in Washington, D.C. Complex deliberations continue in the Democrat-led US Senate to pass President Biden's omnibus Build Back Better Act.

Today on the Midday Newswrap, Tom's guest is Luke Broadwater. As a reporter for the Baltimore Sun, he led the team that won the Pulitzer Prize for their breaking coverage of former Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh and the scandal that landed her and two associates in jail. Luke now covers Congress as a correspondent for The New York Times.
