Clip: 12/20/2017 | 4m 52s

In our news wrap Wednesday, Virginia's vacant state legislative seat has come down to a tie. Judges ruled today that candidates Shelly Simonds and David Yancey are dead even, after Simonds had been originally told she won by a single vote. Also, Congress worked on a spending bill to keep the government running through mid-January, ahead of a Friday deadline to avoid a shutdown.
