Maryland and Virginia’s representatives in Congress are in a fierce competition to get the new FBI headquarters built within their state’s borders.

The Government Services Administration has been working to identify potential sites for the agency as it prepares to move out of its current home in the J Edgar Hoover building.

The Hill's Alex Bolton talks with WAMU host Pat Brogan about what influence, if any, the two lawmakers will have in the GSA's decision-making process.
