Speaker of the House Mike Johnson (R-La.) has a lot on his agenda — aid to Israel and Ukraine, a looming government shutdown & more. He’ll need bipartisan support to get things done, but how doable that is remains to be seen.

This episode: voting correspondent Ashley Lopez, congressional correspondent Deirdre Walsh, and senior political editor and correspondent Domenico Montanaro.
