ABC News Live will present a pair of specials to mark the first 100 days of the most diverse Congress in history as the symbolic milestone approaches for President Biden and his administration. Streaming Tuesday, April 13, at 8:00 p.m. EDT, “The First 100 Days: Representative Nancy Mace and Representative Marilyn Strickland” follows congressional correspondent Rachel Scott as she spends the first 100 days with Rep. Nancy Mace, the first female Republican lawmaker from South Carolina, and Rep. Marilyn Strickland, the first African American and first Korean American in the House from Washington State. Through video diaries and one-on-one time, viewers will see them living through the attack at the Capitol and starting their work on behalf of their constituents. “GMA3: What You Need to Know” will preview the special on Tuesday afternoon.

 

Later the same evening at 10:00 p.m. EDT, senior Washington reporter Devin Dwyer will take a closer look at the promises President Biden made on the campaign trail and the problems he must now confront in “The First 100 Days: President Biden Takes Office.” From the virus and the vaccine to an economy in need of a lifeline with a new flashpoint at the border and new calls to address gun violence, Dwyer will examine where the Biden presidency stands and what’s next on the President’s agenda. Plus, ABC News’ chief White House correspondent Cecilia Vega will moderate a conversation with ABC News’ first all-female White House correspondent team, including Mary Bruce, MaryAlice Parks and Karen Travers, to make sense of the White House transition from Donald Trump to Joe Biden.
