A fight over the next round of coronavirus aid is coming to a head as lawmakers prepare to race the clock to get a deal.

Congress faces multiple hurdles to getting an agreement including the growing pull of the November election, a tight schedule and significant policy differences.

Both Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) say they think they’ll be able to get a deal, but leaders haven’t yet started negotiating and both sides have appeared skeptical of the other side’s key priorities.

Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) said there had been no outreach from McConnell as lawmakers return to Washington for the first time in two weeks.
