Virginia lawmakers came to an agreement on an expansion of the state’s Medicaid program, opening it up to an additional 400,000 residents. The debate over ending the tiered minimum wage program for tipped workers heats up in Washington. And the Maryland gubernatorial race get shaken up with a debate, a lawsuit, and Governor Hogan stepping into the fray with a new commercial. All of that, plus we hear from D.C.’s delegate to Congress Eleanor Holmes Norton about her re-election campaign and Montgomery County Councilmember Roger Berliner on his bid to be County Executive.
