Will this infrastructure debate have a brighter ending? "We've been promised so many times that this is going to be pushed across the goal line, but I think it is different," one leader tells us. "People understand today, better than they ever had, how vulnerable an economy is."

One Cincinnati CEO told us that raising taxes isn't ideal, but added: "Some people will bark, but you've got to pick up the dinner check somehow. It's time to get on with it. It would be a gross shame if another opportunity to pass an infrastructure plan is squandered."

.@SenSherrodBrown believes Americans are supportive of raising corporate taxes to foot the bill. "This argument about the definition of infrastructure is downright silly. It's a bill that's going to meet the needs--the crying needs--for a generation of rebuilding our country."

.@senrobportman hopes the White House is serious about a bipartisan approach, but is skeptical. "My hope is he'll focus on real infrastructure and work with us on how to pay for it," he tells us during our visit to Ohio.

The Brent Spence Bridge, which spans the Ohio River, has long been a political football and a symbol of government dysfunction. Promises from the Obama and Trump administrations didn't materialize. Will the Biden infrastructure plan be different? https://t.co/w24BVsVbxA

Many Nebraska Republicans have been closely watching @SenatorFischer to see if she would announce a bid for governor. Today, she put that speculation to rest, telling Omaha's @kfabnews that she will remain in the Senate and not mount a campaign to lead the Cornhusker State.

President Biden has yet to name a single ambassador to an overseas post, stirring quiet frustration among career diplomats and donors eager for a spot. A few top announcements could come in April, with most weeks or months away. @kylieatwood & I report: https://t.co/jTmUFhzVLZ
