Your daily scoop of what State of the Union is watching today, May 7, 2014.

1.Kidnapped Nigerian girls. The U.S. is sending a team of experts to Nigeria to help try to find more than 200 girls abducted last month by the terrorist group Boko Haram. State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki says the American team will provide the Nigerian government with law enforcement assistance and military intelligence. All 20 women serving in the Senate signed a letter urging the Obama administration to take action on behalf of the missing girls, and four female members of the House visited the Nigerian embassy Wednesday to demand action. Meanwhile Nigerian authorities say at least 150 people have been killed in an attack launched Monday by Boko Haram.
