The 2020 election is over, but the fight to ensure it's not undermined has begun. President Donald Trump won Texas but didn't gain enough electoral votes to defend his seat in the White House and continues to allege widespread voter fraud with no supporting evidence.

When Former Vice President and President-elect Joe Biden takes the helm in January as expected, he will do so with the support of a Democratic majority in the U.S. House of Representatives and opposition from a Senate still controlled by the GOP and Mitch McConnell. How will those divisions affect Congressional policymaking and future relief for those affected by COVID-19?

How are members of Congress reacting to the presidential race and results? What's on their agenda for next session?

What are the top priorities for Democrats and Republicans in Congress? Are they willing to put aside hyper-partisan quarrels, restore civility to the process and work together to get things done for the American people?
