They switched to so it went from one of the most difficult visas to becoming coming up pretty straightforward visa. So one more reason to visit this country another challenge that's been Hurting Pakistan's understands tourism is the Security Situation Sofi can Kausar what's the security situation like now impacts there will were the last five years a skewed acuity situation has improved. Dramatically government has made a major commitment and effort and stabilizing the country over the last several years through military operations and community outreach reach today the majority of the country stable and safe with the exception of dry Blazevic domain challenging. That's great to hear for travelers as well goes for all the people of Pakistan That the government is making having some great success in that area There's a lot to seem Pakistan stand but other what a tourist buxton is current currently untouched by tourism.

Tom Steyer polling at 2nd place in South Carolina, qualifies for DNC debate this month

"Meanwhile what's going right for Tom Stiers the California billionaire and presidential candidate will be on the debate stage tomorrow because of his unusually high poll numbers his polling jumped in two key early primary states last week a fox news poll showed him at fifteen percent in South Carolina that puts him second behind only Joe Biden and he's tied for third with Elizabeth Warren in Nevada at twelve percent it'll bump joins me now his national correspondent for The Washington Post any right about how Stiers shaping the twenty twenty election hello hello well before we get a star let's just talk about Booker what happened with him essentially what happened with him is that he was never able to get real traction his campaign and there are a lot of reasons that's probably the case one of course being that the field is so big another being that there are other candidates who shared his his sort of broadly moderate space in the field who were able to get more traction people like judge from Indiana were really able to get to eat into that space and sort of present themselves as new in a way that that Booker had trouble doing you his is the story of a lot of these cameras which is that it it's hard to get in front of orders nationally and brokerages was able to do it right and he certainly complain that one of the reasons he couldn't get enough facetime nationally was the DMC the debate rules that the DNC put forward he criticized the rule saying that billionaire candidates like Styrum Bloomberg can really game the system because they can put so much advertising on TV and really attracts people in in Paul's does he have a point there is he's got extremely good point in that the DNC rules were created specifically to trying well we know down the field but by doing so what the DNC ended up doing an advert only was rewarding people who were able to make a very strategic massive investments in certain places I and punish those who weren't so well Booker did have a national a profile as a senator from the from the state New Jersey he was not able to for example spend the kind of money that one could to either influence individual polls or get his name out and ends and get a lot of small donors to give to his campaign and that limit is is rich well speaking of let's hear a clip of tape from CNN yesterday where Jake tapper is specifically asking Tom Stiers about spending money for poll numbers ninety one percent of television ad spending in South Carolina is from you ninety seven percent of television ad spending in Nevada is from you do you not think that it's your millions and the flood of advertising in those states that that's why you did well in the polls and are now on the debate stage Jake if you'll read today's Washington post there's a story about this and what it details is what's actually going on on the ground I've been to South Carolina multiple times we have eighty two organizers on the ground in South Carolina I match your grass roots person I've been there there's someone who didn't endorse me who's a politician in South Carolina who said expire came down here he rolled up his sleeves he went out he listen to people he sat across the table he work okay so feel of what's the truth there is it's the money buying the polls or is he actually doing the work to get the support I mean a I think it sort of gives the game way himself when he says he has eighty eighty however many organizes on the ground as organizes aren't working for free and you can you know Cory Booker didn't everyday organizes on ground is gonna forty eighty organizer's on the ground right I mean did tappers numbers about that TV spending or write us tire is dominated in South Carolina and Nevada television spots in the reason he's done so is very simple the democratic rule said you need to be at a certain percentage of support in the early state polls in the waste tires I'd do that was poor bunch of money in the states that so far other came it's like Joe Biden Bernie Sanders aren't spending money in because they're further down the line right but Snyder has the money he just sort of put a bunch of money into the states in advertising there he can put a bunch of staff in those states push up his numbers in those states and hit the mark he needs in order to make the debate stage but will that translate into votes when it comes down to it when it comes to Iowa to New Hampshire and then later to South Carolina and Nevada so far it hasn't seemed as though it's going to work I mean one of the things he's clearly trying to do is get on the debate stage but after his debate performances it's not as though he suddenly shoots up in the polls he still only about two percent nationally debates are obviously something that should be reflected in national poll numbers because there are national events of people tune into I think one of the things we're going to see is after Iowa New Hampshire we will see whoever does better in those states start to see more support in the next two states down the line though as being South Carolina and Nevada and I think that'll start to flood out some of the attention it's Dyer has bought for himself and it's certainly possible to maybe Stiers all out of the blue find today big appeal from Democrats nationally so far though even though he's managed to get on the debate stage he hasn't been able to make a case the really persuades lot national Democrats to support even though he was early on the impeachment wagon he took out ads along time ago basically calling for Donald trump's impeachment is that not translating into support in the Democratic Party now aids late hasn't so far I mean I think that there certainly was an aspect of that that was that was viewed by a least among political observers as being someone self serving was pretty clear that he was using impeachment of sort of get his name out there I that said even though he has your right for months you know well over a year and sort of blanketing the airwaves with his own image and this call for impeachment again he's a two percent nationally in the polls and that too if that we're going to have an effect would be reflected in those national poll numbers so he'll be on the debate stage tomorrow but Michael Bloomberg will not and why is that because he certainly has been blanketing the airwaves with ads right but in different places Bloomberg has made a conscious decision not to take contributions from people and that has meant that he's it's impossible for him to meet to debate standards which require a certain number of contributions from people around the country and as such will Bloomberg Astana's he's were largely issued the first several states that are gonna be voting and really focused on super Tuesday the first Tuesday March when a bunch of large states on a lot of states including California and Texas go to the polls so Bloomberg spent a lot of money on ads but he spent it in those other early states he hasn't spent a lot in South Carolina or Nevada and if you look at the rationale behind that it makes some sense there are a lot more delegates at stake in that first Tuesday March then it will be in any of the four states that come up before then so do you see Starfire as this campaign goes forward into super Tuesday DEC Stiers star waning and Bloomberg's taking off one I'm not even sure that the star has much of a start of Wayne and it certainly did well in this fox news poll on some other polls that that have been doing moderately okay but he's not doing very well as a candid Bloomberg being a part of lunch money in the race he's not doing particularly well either but I think the Bloomberg strategy is designed to pay off later in the cycle then is tires I animal I mean star has enough money to stay in and told the general election if you want to do which is something the Bloomberg says he's going to do is actually so I don't see our missile dropping out anytime soon just question how much money he wants the perk right so it ends worth noting that he's rich but he's not Bloomberg rich right it's like one point six billion verses fifty four billion yeah as Michael Bloomberg will point out very few people are Michael Bloomberg rich right well what does this say to you when you take a step back and look at the whole big picture of money in politics what is this a two year does money translated into votes can you say about this early well I mean obviously when we're talking about these poll numbers were not necessarily talking about votes I'll be interested to see if Stiers decent position and some is always winning states were pointed out to buy his winning in both those states right now it's gonna be interesting to see if it does translate that certainly has in the past in the case that people have been able to pour a lot of money into campaigns and do better than you might have expected but again that doesn't always hold driver Jeb bush in twenty sixteen add you know nine figures that he was gonna spend both directly and have people spend on his behalf needed terribly in the presidential primaries so so it's not a one to one correlation but it's clearly the case that we are right now talking about Tom star and Mike Bloomberg while we are at the same time watching established US centers like Cory Booker and Kirsten Gillibrand standing on the sidelines after having announcer campuses money definitely does by you the ability to stick around as long as you want

I mean, can can you say much of a shakeup overall? I can see that several contenders losing chunk of time that will be more handful that the one that. That it was low seeing because it what the what the juicy riders lost in chemistry was more or less expected and not not much because of the strength. But because of the garbs you got the road because of several factors not related to shape you know to Bori tomorrow, it's going to be head on onto into declined.

So the engines will prevail there either that loosened tomorrow is probably wants to blow to the ones that make it into the time of the stage winner for the type of rider.

This is a big deal in Spanish. Cycling, right. Yes, yeah. I mean, at this point, the it's rollers are probably two of the top five riders in Spanish cycling. I mean, they are consistent all along. They have. They have managed to make a name for themselves not as domestiques about us proper contenders for a one week races, and even from one day races and this move has been pretty followed because what they wear, not quite happy, the VAR Morita material that was solved because especially of. Charming. That's their best thing. The thing they love most and when they switch it from the canyon of moisture team today, marry the Verein. They found Murray that to be an inferior bike. So they're result in time. Trials were slightly wars. They filled a Los several races because of that and that render them not really happy. Luckily, there was a huge change on that before the Spanish national championships. They were giving the new Maria time trial vikes, and that may improve significantly. They were indeed white proud and by adamant that they had help build this new bike. They got gold and the bronze medal. I think it was ten trial of this national championships. But anyway, I can imagine that the fat. That Mary Barra Morita can offer. Two year deals, and because the of Brian sponsorships is ending at the end of twenty nineteen to have played a factor. They were behind the well. They were chased by the two oil reach teams on the wall to proud on the other two on reach teams Astana, and you a team Emirates and eighteen image the south.

Having said that as we drove lonely or course today team Skype was being very closely marked by the Bahrain Morita boss on the motorway by the team, but the other the other team with two right?

It was a planned move treks Fred, who missed out one stage with John digging, obviously, but miss out shortly finishing second and third place with Boca Melinda and well took to Stephen, the young there to manager who explained that that apparently to San Julian upfront in in the climb, and then to have a second attack by Mullah at been planned. So let's listen to what he had to say. Well, another day with trek to the front and just short again today. Yes, it was quite a hard. We got the composition of the top of the climb with Mike and front, and then dome symbolic Baoguo dear. But it was also block of strong block of Astana vulgar and with Nielsen. So Julia, was I on the move the on the Vignal. And then bucket was just behind. I suppose it was a plan move. Yeah, it was a plan move because we didn't want to make the climb easy there because Elsa gone was in that group. And yeah, that's that's, of course a guy you won't take over the top to. It's finished his best. Your talks attack them. Nothing was the only thing to do. And yeah, team it well. In the high new, what's the? What's the objective now while more stage wins. But yesterday we were third today, third, so we're not succeeding, but we keep on trying. Well, as you say that Francois trick, sick afraid I had a plan and didn't really execute it.

This morning, Michael Valdan said he and Magnus. We're gonna go into break and they were going to win the stage. So they were oversee comforted and that was the plan, but it's not always works out like that. No, that's true. But I mean when you on the wool. Biggest cycling race and you're competing against the biggest names in the world, and you have a clear vision of what you're going to do.
