After weeks of political infighting and cross-party jabs, the House and Senate are expected to approve a short-term spending bill that would avoid a shutdown of the Department of Homeland Security. However, the stopgap measure would simply punt the issue for another three weeks, and DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson has voiced frustration that a long-term solution has not been reached. We’ll talk exclusively with the Majority Whip, Rep Steve Scalise (R-LA) who is responsible for “whipping up” votes for his party in the House.

The annual Conservative Political Action Conference convenes this week, an event that has become a must stop for any Republican with presidential aspirations. Among the speakers is Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, who has taken a strong lead in Iowa polls among likely 2016 candidates, the state whose caucuses begin the presidential primary calendar. We’ll talk exclusively with Governor Walker about 2016, the right-to-work bill his state is tackling, and his ongoing fight over cutting aid to the Wisconsin university system.
