Automatic TRANSCRIPT

I think. The prospects are good. I don't think that we would be jeopardising a democratic seat. As you mentioned it is a blue state here are voter. Registration skews democratic drastically The state has had largely democratic representation for decades now. So I don't think that there's We're not necessarily presenting a concern about disrupting the ability to have a Democrat in representing us in the Senate. Okay I asked that because you know obviously that's a big question that people have in terms of primaries how much We jeopardizing the seat. Obviously every seat in the Senate is really important. Now with that said I would be Less than forthcoming. If I didn't say that I was very much hoping that somebody would primary Chris coons for a myriad of reasons and and I WANNA get obviously for a to the the list of issues that you support In a bit because I think obviously people should have positive reasons to vote but when we're talking about voting for a challenger against incumbent I think there has to be a case as to why the incumbent is not necessarily serving the their constituency. Well now I have about a half dozen reasons of my own about Chris. Coons and we've been mostly talking to challengers of Congress people and I generally don't have this many reasons But let's hear yours specifically in terms of Chris coons where is Chris? Coons failing the people of Delaware. Yeah so I the core point here. There are quite a few contrast that I'm drying right. I'm looking to run a campaign. That is people centric. I want a government that puts people at its core and legislate for the people and we have a senator right now. Who is not focused on that? He has taken hundreds of thousands of dollars from industries like big Pharma and then directly starts working on bills that are going to benefit those those industries so he's working on a bill right now to do quote unquote patent reform. But what they're doing is actually putting stronger patents in the hands of pharmaceutical companies preventing generic competition and creating higher prices for Delaware Ian. So when I look at things like that I see a senator who's not fighting for the people of Delaware. I look at things. Like lack of commitment to economic justice. Things like saying minimum wage raising fifteen dollars that it wouldn't necessarily be It would be too much money for places in even in our state. We know that that's not true. We know that has a median. Run-of-the-mill average one bedroom apartment. You need to be making at least eighteen dollars in our state to be able to afford that without overtaxing yourself. So He's not even Trudeau into the experience that voters have in our state and on top of that he really seems to have bipartisanship in his mind is the end game and don't inherently have a problem with bipartisanship or compromise. But when I see that done at the expense of Delaware Ian that apply start to recognize that there has to be something beyond bipartisanship that we are fighting for. It can't be simply about making that compromise. The example of this is last year when he worked with Jeff Flake during the cavenaugh hearings to fight for this FBI investigation and then he and Jeff Flake went on this tour on television talking about this compromise well the FBI completely failed to conduct thorough investigation into the claims that were against Brett capital. And those are the things that have been doing like rubber stamping. A lot of trump judges voted for more than eighty of them many of which who are anti choice anti women's rights and civil rights and have not confirmed their support for things like Brown versus board of Education. He's confirmed many of trump's employees including people like Pearson Nielsen. Who is no longer in the job after she was Defending the camps that exists at our borders right now. People like Alex as our who is a drug company lobbyists and former drug company executive who is now running health and Human Services and want. He wants to position himself as a centrist. I can make ill but in reality it ends up just pulling him to the right hand ripe side and not fighting for the people of Delaware. I know the Politico magazine called him. The quote the GOP's favourite Democrat and I'm glad you brought up that notion of supposed bipartisanship very often in my experience and I've been watching this stuff for fifteen years. That is often a fig leaf to promote like you say a corporate agenda when Chris coons is already talking about after Mitch. Mcconnell has basically just turn the Senate into a factory to confirm right wing judges. They have confirmed more judges almost in three years under trump than they did under eight years under Obama on the circuit court when Chris coons says he wants to bring back the filibuster if the Democrats take control that to me is a sign that this guy does not want Democrats to be able to influence our government in the way that Republicans have and I understand if you come from Montana or something and this is your disposition but this is a state that is like we said earlier a democratic leaning state by by over six point. We all right. We'll be back with a second-half that Jesse screen interview in a moment but I should tell you what I've talked about this in the past and I like to share too much of my details of my hygiene regimen But I have avoided conventional deodorants for as long as I can because Many of them contain things like aluminum which not only Plugs your sweat glands keep you from sweating But I just you know any type of stuff like that. I get a little bit nervous. About Natives. Deodorant made without aluminum. So you can feel better about what you're putting on your body while smelling and feeling fresh all day. Native Deodorant is formulated without aluminum without parabens without Talq made with ingredients. You've actually heard of coconut oil shea. Butter comes in over ten cents like coconut in Vanilla and lavender and rose now. Of course I don't go anywhere near the lavender for me. My Native Deodorant. I got unscented I love it. Native is also excited for the relaunch..
