With Dems in control, will DC statehood finally pass?
As the White House indicates President Biden supports the District of Columbia in its quest to become the 51st state, the House Oversight Committee is set to once again meet on the prospects of pro-statehood legislation on Monday. And while the House has passed statehood legislation, Senate Republicans failed to put the measure up for a vote, with Republican leader Mitch McConnell likening the idea to 'socialism.' Now that Democrats control the chamber, advocates are hoping for a different outcome. Bo Shuff from DC Vote joined Jim on The Final 5 to talk about the prospects for passage, and how they plan to counter the arguments from opponents.
