MJ Hegar wants to bring Texas values to the Senate
"MJ Hagar Welcome. Hi. Jonathan. Thanks for having me on. So okay. I I had a set first question, but I'm going to ask my own separate question and that is we started out the clip intro this moment. With your doors add. You ran when you ran the last time to me was one of the most powerful political ads had seen perhaps ever was it important for you to tell your story in that way? You know I think part of why it was. So powerful was the moment that it played in. In that moment people were. Being exposed to the horrors of family separation, for example. And the fact that it resonated so much with people almost. Sad. I want it to be successful, but it was also kind of disheartening to hear so many people reach out to the campaign and say, yes, that was me I had doors closed in my face to I've been trying to advocate for. Disability rights because my child has down syndrome or whatever it was that they were trying to be heard by other elected officials and they completely You know empathize with that that experience of going to DC and having your elected officials closed door in your face and treat you like if you're not a big donor or you don't have any political capital to barter with and you don't matter. And so it was kind of a bittersweet thing. It was great that it got the campaign so much attention but it broke my heart a little that people were. So gut punched over family separation and and so used to their government just not working for them that the message really resonated with people. And so you you lost that. That that ad was made for and now you're running for for US Senate most polls I've seen have you around by points within five points of Senator Cornyn the Cook Political Report classifies your race as likely are which I expected to be solid are given whose Senator Cornyn is from your perspective how is the race looking? Well you know I mean if you I love you know just talking about like the INS and outs of the data although I do think the data shows. That, we have a much better shot than Beto did against Ted Cruz a lot of people think that beddoe crews race that if anybody you know. If we couldn't beat Ted Cruz and we can't beat anybody in Texas. It's actually not true independent voters really like Ted Cruz Ted Cruz had a fifty two percent approval rating when he wants went up against Beto. and. Better almost beaten and John Cornyn has an approval rating of anywhere from twenty eight to thirty two and the vote exactly the same way, and so you have to try to figure out what the differences between the white has one why once a while popular in Texas and one's not And, the reason that that John Cornyn is not so popular is because he there's not an independent bone in his body. He just does he's told he does as he's told by his corporate special interests he does he's told by his party leaders and. You know that's very Texan. It's very Texan to have backbone and grit and integrity and stand up for your principles and so You know I don't really look at polling that much. Even fivethirtyeight recently said that Democrats in Texas are always going out will recently at least maybe not always are outperforming the polling in part because you poll people with a reliable voting history and we've been forty nine hundred fiftieth in voter turnout for decades. So who's reliable voter anymore when when you have double or triple the turnout at the polls, a lot of the people showing up to vote which by the way the people who are getting. Engaged to go and vote who haven't been reliable voters tend to be not good news for whatever political party is in power right? So we expect to outperform the Coles the polling we're we're a lot closer than Beto was in the polling against Ted Cruz and yet he's still almost beat him. So I, have every confidence that. After the debate we only have one scheduled that Cornyn. has agreed to he has kind of chickened out on the other to even though he told the Texas Tribune that he would be. Willing to do more. I think that he knows that he can't run on his record I. think he knows that the more Texans learn about him the worse it is for him we pick up a lot more of those independent undecided voters because my vision for this state is a lot more in line with Texas values in. Want.

Why Michigan is the next big Bernie Sanders-Joe Biden battleground
"That is that it's not over yet but it's not looking good for Bernie Sanders and his socialist revolution let's just put it that way it's out he's got it he needs a miracle to come back in and win this thing in the end it or don't have a shot at it he needs to do really well and a lot of these upcoming states he doesn't have my chart margin for error and the reason for that is is that what happened in the a few days after South Carolina was the Democrat establishment coalesced behind Joe Biden really quick and it's pretty clear deals Joe Biden's wouldn't on super Tuesday the DNC machine gave it to on they took it for granted I'm they gave it to him so there's a few things that happen in the lead up to super Tuesday that are really important Terry McAuliffe the former governor of Virginia former DNC chair endorse Joe Biden that means the whole Virginia machine got behind that's why does Clinton though he was outspent by eighteen million dollars by Mike Rosenberg so Clinton's hatchet man Hillary Clinton hatchet man have a cold AF send the message and and then in that in the state of Virginia McCall's machine went to work but I didn't did but barely any campaign events are spent barely any right in Virginia so it's like how the hell did he win that big sorry I didn't mean to say that that that bad everywhere here but how the heck did you win that big of a race on hi I'm fine in in Virginia to the point where Bloomberg didn't even get any delegates after spending eighteen million dollars there Bernie did get a handful of patents out of Virginia but that it wasn't just for Genya Beto Rourke came in from in Texas the genesis machine came in Amy Klobuchar who dropped out at the urging of the party al there's the behind the scenes people the Obamas and so on and so forth I I came in for I'm in Minnesota in Massachusetts Elizabeth Warren the supposedly leftist progressives socialists who really it doesn't actually believe in what she puts forward is more loyal to the party establishment that she is and to the ideas she supposedly espouses and she just dropped out today but she stands in Massachusetts that blocked burning in Massachusetts and in Maine Rodney near nearby neighboring Maine and so on biting winds all these states that he probably should know one and Bloomberg really under performed across Italy he's got already and now warrants out of the race and it's really a two person race and so again Bernie's gonna need a huge night in Michigan he needs to not just win message when Michigan who needs to win decisively he he are coming on Tuesday other states I the upcoming that burning is to do really well in other rust belt states like Maine upper Midwest states like Wisconsin or Pennsylvania Arnaud heiau Bernie Bernie has a swing pass show but it's not looking good form and it's pretty clear they came for Bernie on Tuesday night and they seem to have delivered pretty close to a knock out
The Demographic Gaps Between Biden and Sanders
"Talked about the racial gaps earlier between Black voters and Latino voters voters favoring Biden Latino voters favoring sanders generally. There's some interesting gender gaps that we're seeing women favoring Biden Sanders and I think that this young olds gap is a perpetual one in the Democratic primary. I mean Bernie Sanders Much much better with Young voters and I was just as we're sitting here. I'm reading. Some I love it when people transcribe cable. Pundits are saying it's good news for us and apparently David Plus who is Who Was Obama's strategist said? We'll Biden's going to really need to you know. Get a lot of young volunteers in that will be a project for them because it is not I mean he and I think you know talking to their campaign like this in this fall particularly when I was reporting a story and Biden. They were somewhat. You know people that I talked to the campaign chairman. When I talked to him he he was kind of like well. Young voters kind of don't understand that they're relax struggles that happened before and we kinda the pathway for them. There's a certain attitude shift that I think perhaps has to happen within the Biden campaign. Or or you know. Campaigns have tears right. You know what I think that's going to involve a lot of surrogates. I would agree with that. I think this is We're kind of looking at the okay. Boomer election here yeah. I mean we saw in Texas in Dallas last night beto come out on stage and give the final speech of the night. After Biden spoke Beto gave the last speech and was speaking in Spanish and getting much louder applause than Biden had gotten during his speech so I think he is going to rely on characters like that to try to boost youth enthusiasm. We'll see if it works. I think that's right. Claire Stole my answer. Basically to to what I'm looking for age race and gender and ideology are like very clear dividing lines in this race and I would be super curious and I hope we can look into like our voters in the Democratic primary like you know how in Congress ideologically Republicans and Democrats are now more distinct from each other than they have ever been. There used to be a lot of overlap. I wonder if along does demographic fault lines in the Democratic primary. We've seen like a separation between those groups more than in past primaries. Obviously there was some pretty clear full lines in two thousand sixteen. The other thing I just will we will be digging into is to delegate picture this is a race ultimately going to be about delegates some some fairly minor differences and where candidates finished wear could make a big difference in how many delegates they get And so I think that'll that'll be the thing. We'll be digging into over the next couple of days. Hopefully also by the way we'll turn the model back on hopefully sometime midday afternoon tomorrow or something like that and Just as a final update before we leave Mike. It looks like things are trending in the direction that you forecasted right now. According to The New York Times needle there is a seventy one percent chance. That Biden Wins Texas. And they're forecasting just two point margin. There Biden also still looking like he's going to pick up main and of course. Sandra is still doing very well up. Ten points in California. The the the The New York Times does something. I'd love which is a chain translator probabilities into into just a phrase so according to the New York Times as a twelve thirty five. Am on Wednesday. March Fourth Bernie. Sanders is quote. Pretty likely to win. California Biden is quite likely to win Maine and Texas is quote leaning Biden. I usually am not able to distinguish what exactly those three different. You need both you need. I'm saying that they give the end. Ender sort of like a phrase to help people place it. It's almost. It's almost like when I characterized erases at the top of the show. I was looking at the needle. And that's where I was basing this

La Live has a new space dedicated to Latin musicians. The Latin music galleries recent opening was attended by a wide range of music. Industry figures the frame contributor. Beto arcus was there and has this report about two hundred. People showed up at the opening of the Grammy Museum's Latin Music Gallery. There was a lot to celebrate when the Grammy Museum opened in. Two Thousand and eight Latin music was is barely noticeable. We try to convince the people of the museum that it was worth it to have space for Latinos and they gave us fifteen square meters. which accounts for one hundred and fifty square feet? Maurice Gabriela Varroa is president of the Latin Recording Academy an offshoot of the Grammy Organization but also says when they began pitching the idea of Latin music space at the museum they had to focus on two things. First Education we are. We are tangled. We are SAMBA. We are personal. We are Ranchera so they said well. It's very easy for you to say but we don't know how to do Louis. Hope I retained on behalf of the Latin Recording Academy experts in every field and they came and they put their best. So when you go there you have all genders there about. Oh assess for nine years. They kept complaining about the one hundred and fifty square feet. They had been allocated until one day he asked I. What else can we do? They said we'll we need contributions so he says Oh. Let's contribute so. We begin being much more cooperative with the museum. undecisive guys. Why don't we do something nicer for you? Assess for the past year and a half. Latin Recording Academy has been helping the Grammy Museum create the Latin Music the gallery they went from one hundred fifty two six thousand square feet so the difference is huge humongous. It is also true that the presence presence of Latin music in America has grown is being more noticed but they also found that most of the apple these to the museum are Latin. Descent are Hispanics who come to the museum. So if the Magic Work Iwo Lavonia they live. Well I think that music brings us all together and now with our renovations were able to tell a lot more stories and a lot. Bigger stories about are about the impact of music. So it's very important. Michael Stich is president of the Grammy Museum. And this is Kind of museum two point zero if you will.

Biden leads Trump in key battleground states but Warren does not, poll finds
"So got a couple the polls to get into I know there are two key polls that have come out today they both conflict one another Robin Oh says that he has a very simple answer surfer that but let's let's bring up I the New York Times Sienna College poll that was released just this morning it does appear that Democrats Kratz may be in trouble in some key battleground states it has how trump fares among likely voters so in Michigan trump is up for for Warren and now with Sanders Sanders is up three Biden is up one in Pennsylvania trump is up against sanders and Warren by one one and two respectively Wisconsin Biden's leading and a lot of these accept North Carolina trump is up in against Biden Sanders Anders and Warren and Let's see Florida Biden is up to SANDERS IS DOWN TO ELIZABETH WARREN is down four against trump clifford your thoughts on us you know looking at this poll with fascinated me was you have a situation where last cycle twenty only sixteen I mean you're talking about a billion dollar spent against the president and that's that's a generous range as high as two billion when you talk about negative campaigning but it all three of these individuals short biden vice president but you look at Bernie in you Look Elizabeth Warren I mean for the most part they really have not been tested yet when it comes comes to hard dollars being spent to paint them a certain way regardless of ideology money being spent to paint you as hey you should not like this person if either of those or any of the three camps very worried right now that the president is polling so well against them when no money has been spent the paint them in a negative light that's a really great point rob you agree I absolutely agree with that and the other thing is this again is a battleground poll and the other we're going to talk about is a national poll and when you look at the state by state poll what this shows is basically there's been no movement of trump verse generic them and these aren't even generic these are three doc well-known dem's there's been no movement between twenty sixteen and today if you look at the internals of the poll which which I saw nate Cohn who is the the polling analyst analyst for the New York Times was talking about if you look at White College educated people and you look across the line it's almost exactly the same if you look at white no colleges it's almost all the all the internals of the poll all the cross tabs are almost exactly the same as they were at the end of the two thousand sixteen election and the big mistake that the media Nia made in two thousand sixteen was focused on the national polling in not the steep steep battleground polls those state by state battleground polls showed movement towards trump MHM now I will say among likely voters this same poll the New York Times Sienna College poll among likely voters data is slightly more favourable for trump it shows him leading warren by three points up one point against sanders and then down one point versus Biden in the same states I'm not sure I don't have on here what the margin of error as well one one comment I'd I'd make is you know you look at these different candidates and you look at what they're trying to do what is their message you know we talk about since two thousand sixteen if impeachment is investment the message and I don't want to jump to it to our next topic but if if impeachments the message which we've seen like when you think Joe Biden what what is his campaign message right if you're a average let's say swing state voter and you think Joe Biden you're not sitting there thinking oh yeah his messages jobs or his message is XYZ wires e his message is the same as Bernie's which is the same as Elizabeth warrants which is we've got impeach the president and I think Democrats are missing the boat on this now it looks to the to the walks into the talking heads in the mainstream media you know they're in the loop and they're in the weeds and sure Elizabeth Warren has got a million different proposals but to everyday voters they're not getting that message and I think that people underestimate the value of running and trying to inspire voters I mean you look at what Obama did back and waiting twelve you look at what what trump did you're not seeing any type of national message from any of the leading contenders Running for the Democrat nomination you wonder if it might be that they are worried about spreading their message because they're the message that they would spread if they were to say hey this is my proposal is just everyone gets free stuff in your taxes because they're going to go up a ton you know what I mean it's like how does that I feel like they might be an a quandary because how does that sell to the American people you know when they've already got a great economy Armie we've got low UNEMPL- record unemployment numbers for minorities especially we've got things so going so well right now it's hard hard to run on these platforms that they are advocating for and where's the wedge issue right if you're a Democrat strategist right let's take off our belief in the constitution for a minute Democrat strategist what do you what do you tell these candidate because you're right record low unemployment record low for black America Asian Americans I mean the economy is roaring now I'd like us to cut cut some spending and I've got my critiques but if you're running a national campaign right now against President trump against the status quo in America it is difficult to find that that wedge issue and I think they have latched onto impeachment because they don't have another issue you know what what is it that they can dive in I mean even some of the major issues the left has tried to only criminal justice reform president trump has swiped from passing the first step day so I think if I'm a Democrat right now I understand why they're doing it but they've gotta to dig a little deeper to find a wedge issue that Americans actually care about and to your point In the article in The New York Times they interviewed some of the people that did the poll and there was a Young Woman that was basically Warren is crazy lately that was what she said like these policies to your point if they ran on on these policies they would be down even further into your point the two thousand eight in two thousand sixteen elections basically the same they were outsiders who said they were going to go in bring down the status quo trump is kind of done it and now they want to impeach him for it Obama didn't do it he got all in with the with the deep state with with the administrative state because that's really was he lied about who he was to get elected that he would go and change it but he did it and you know to your point on impeachment I don't I think it's GonNa work I mean look look at the nationals that they're talking about with impeachment right they're talking about forty nine percent want to impeach at fifty one or less than that don't want to impeach again these are adults nut registered voters not people that are actually going to decide the election Nancy Pelosi this weekend went on record saying that she doesn't you know what the Democratic candidates are doing it's because she knew that polling like this exists if the election were held today Donald Trump would get another four years in people's heads would explode let let me give you one quick note I was in an Uber in Florida northern Florida Florida matters especially coming in the twenty twenty I had a forty year old female independent Uber driver ever tell me and I asked her just totally I said you know what are your thoughts currently she asked what I do and she said you know I'll tell you this she says I'm not a huge trump fan but what they're are doing with this impeachment I'm going to have to support them because nobody should have to go through that process and it's just this this unfair bashing when he's trying to do good things and I mean coming independent in Florida I should tell you something that's incredible well the conflicting poll that we referenced earlier was of course it was a national poll as rob pointed out it was a Fox News poll of all things released yesterday that had his approval rating trump's approval rating at forty two percent with fifty seven percent of registered boaters disapproving of his job performance and somehow they threw Hillary Clinton's name in there which I mean Fox come on what are you doing to us that's right now why are you trying to convince her to run okay I get it ratings all right I got it but let's see trump is behind all of the top Tier Democrats in this this poll he is behind Joe Biden Fifty one to thirty nine he's behind Warren Forty six to forty one he's behind sanders forty nine to forty one and Nan Hillary Clinton forty three to forty one why did they what did they throw her name in their cliff just for fun since the torture US I think you'd be surprised that Hillary Clinton the Clinton family I mean walking away from power I'm not going to sit here and say I do expect her to get in but it wouldn't surprise me so I think you know Fox's probably right to ask the question but just go back to to the you know talking about national poll versus stay baseball's none of these folks have had the type of money spent against them them and I'm telling you that they can look at the polling early on they made this mistake in two thousand sixteen wants the money is spent once voters are actually paying attention or force the pay attention because a billion dollars will be spent against whoever the Democrat nominee is to paint them and they're gonNA paint you know they're going to spend money to paint themselves but when that money is spent that to me is when you're actually going to see the movements of the American people want to support them say throw this poll out but I will tell you that Hillary Clinton was up by those numbers in two thousand sixteen and she won the popular vote and she did not win the election because we're republic with an Electoral College and you need to do the state by state polls I think Hillary if she I think Senate on Friday but if Hillary wants to get in she's got eleven days now to register one hundred dollars a registered in the Hampshire so hillary is going to get in I think we know by November for fifteen but to your point in just to hammer your point home you're talking about two billion dollars hasn't been spent in media in burned media loan trillions of dollars have been spent against Donald trump over the past three years it's been every day it's been groundhog day this is the day we're GONNA get Donald Trump and and then they don't get it so I mean don't from negatives are pretty much as low as you're going to get him there's nowhere else to go
"beto" Discussed on The Young Turks
"If you like the Young Turks podcast I think you'll love a lot of the podcasts on the it network old school drop. Elizabeth Warren is out with our Medicare for all plan and then people are reacting or Joe Biden reaction and so that has been the big big mystery for the mainstream media was bay where trump Rudy Giuliani fun for everybody okay so lots and lots of show for you ben is out it's done he's up of things and acting decisively in that spirit I am announcing that my service of the country will not I see something high I get onto something but anyway he's been in this like six million dollars in the first forty eight hours and then I read a stat was what was it like the Washington Post maybe they mean hours no no it's definitely possible yeah yeah clearly defined buckets Biden Clo- are more conserved Democrats they say me Sanders Elizabeth Warren very those are very clear ends of the spectrum right and now this end of the spectrum that could have gone either way in the beginning of the campaign right they got in the progressive that's a small when you compare the twenty seven people that were in this race at different times Beto I have in the camp of well intentioned none of the rest of the media will talk about now that was absolutely decisive so at the beginning Organiz the volunteers and staffers to go out on knock on doors make phone calls they broke so he had it and that's why he raised the six million right in the beginning people in the beginning he is running as seems like not really Medicare for all and I was like Oh no John with Ted Cruz came back and was like these for Medicare for all right then an-and it's like he seems like he's leaning away from progressives now and I think that that was a critical says better you've got this you're the next Bobby Kennedy we're going to win this is so exciting so so he's like Oh bummer staffers that was legendary left Zach mallets Becky Bonn and all the people that Work Aso's people who believe in those Obama staffers now how did that work out for you yeah I and rhetoric was not an Obama and the staffers were young services that this Obama world had explored and again we've seen like the connection in this moment that's one thing and to it's interesting to me when candidates can't he got really close I didn't understand why people saw him as a frontline right he didn't really have any solutions for us besides the fact that he double down on other Democrats would not but there wasn't something spectacularly special about I just told them for the day and so there was a lane that he could've used to win if he came both those candidates are in their seventies and could then he sticks with his organizing team and then he would was Obama staffers. Yeah you know the idea that Obama's more charismatic I I charisma those are the two leaders Senate they can never unprecedented I don't WanNa give like run Mehta's side on this okay you have to have it but I think it's definitely reading saying that necessarily gets you all the way but it certainly counts for something and the confession speech that better win in the Senate but I want him somewhere on my team so look I don I don't WanNa get and so all the people that are focusing all the wrong reasons if they keep missing lifetime the voters care about policy they deeply deeply oppose standard milk toasts moderate to conservative policies and people like especially early on as you pointed out he didn't have a really strong identity since they decided to come in and like the first national introduction that a lot of people had was this vanity thing why you should be president and you you seem so sure of yourself that's a weird combination remember six months ago I'm talking about guns it seems like he talked about it and it did well and so he'd double down and I'm not saying he's like trump but trump does this talks about everything he sees gets applause did right he he's pretty good on their environment he was very good in challenging Donald Trump's doubling down on guns yes John could be right that he saw moment there especially with what happened cost selections and how dare you and he's like that's like your opinion man but this stuff's getting people killed it's okay so you have to give him credit for that but more even more important that he took no corporate pack money so there were some loophole issues at center but guys he led on that when no one else the the light side right force of good we'll have to see what he does now yeah I'm really good policies but he got wooed and and Seduce case fatal mistake and that he could go back to being a progressive and so in and if given the right leadership and guidance I think he comes back and plays percents from Buddha J. Show like I'm authentic and I've got some good instincts in some bad instincts and the war and took the progressive thing that I was planning to do but oh well I guess that's relates the judge and so anyway of course he wasn't going to win this is the right decision right now they're running even though they know they're not going to be president okay why don't we move onto another and what exactly it will look like and that is because Medicare for all is a at least proposal about our plan it's not the actual legislation but she does have a post it's like twenty really how much medicare for all is it. Well she says under my plan Medicare for all we'll cover the version that that Bernie has put out then is substantive Medicare for all that actually it is before we get into the financing and everything it is substantive healthcare yes that she was going to listen to advisers Oh gotta get closer to the Democratic Party and everything's she was at had at least some voices counseling her in that direction she didn't are we get all the benefits that John talked about and we would save money now Oh you know John mentioned some downsides I'm not even sure I see the downsides and this was so smart because now in the debates she can do and I agree this is Medicare for all but and say read the plan I put it out there and if you didn't do your job journalists to read he starts with is such a great story about her father and his heart attack and how that interrogate what is happening in this industry and how can we radically change it and you know the reason see for middle class folks she's closely with the Roosevelt Institute which is a think tank expect how detailed and how she was going to answer her critics in a powerful okay yeah and so I'm going to jump into how she's going to pay for I will say so who it is that is pushing for is going to be really important perhaps the most important to some people and I have much more faith in Bernie Sanders to have the the organizing ability is to say well it's really easy to write anything in a proposal counter by saying I've looked at a lot of the people in the democratic it'd be paid for the first option is the current system which costs like fifty two trillion dollars over apps for a number of reasons we'll get into she goes on to say the eleven trillion dollars in household insurance and out operations and the richest one percent of Americans and by cracking down on tax evasion and fraud not one appar get ready to ask that question million times but anyway so what does that actually mean she made references billion dollars then she adds stem risk fee on financial institutions with more than fifty billion ex- on foreign earnings her wealth tax now changes as a part all income and doing so on an annual basis rather than just when a sale is made to raise two a trillion dollars there's a little bit more which we'll get into but what I like about the financing is goals to finance that like.

accomplishment of those visa being seventh best in the world will surely strike anyone is a fine achievement still we all live in a world in which only gold silver and bronze stand on the podium and indeed only gold has the stirring employer of hearing it's anthem so one might be forgiven for regarding as an also ran an establishment that concocted the seventh best slice of pizza in the world and

News Brief: Presidential Debate, EPA Changes Clean Water Rules
"Now we know what it looks and sounds like when all the Democratic presidential contenders share the same stage that's right the ten leading leading candidates met in Houston Texas Joe Biden who's been leading in the polls stood near the centre. Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders stood to either side. Now it'd be hard to say that anybody decisively one debate so many months before actual voting but this event did seem to highlight genuine differences among Democrats including those three the at center stage. What were the differences well? NPR POLITICAL REPORTER ASTHMA Hollywood is in Houston Good Morning Aspe- and our senior political editor and correspondent Dominica Montinaro was watching Ching to Dominica Good morning to you and let's start with you Dominica. What did you see is? Those candidates spoke well. I mean you know the big thing here is that this was the strongest debate eight at least to start for Joe. Biden was crisper than he's been. He seemed ready to go on the attack but he also got some help early on and that's a big part of why is able to do better from amy cloche are the senator from Minnesota. She really decided to Kinda hug the moderate lane and seemed to put a floor under Biden in didn't wind up turning turning into a pylon like it has an other debates pylon Joe Biden and instead there was this division in the Democratic Party was several candidates on either side and asthma something in close to I I think close to half an hour of disagreements on a single big issue healthcare that's right and we've seen other healthcare debates in the first chew debates but what I think is unique about this. One is at the focus of the healthcare conversation for much of this campaign cycle has been concentrated on the progressive left specifically around around Bernie Sanders Medicare for all plan last night. Biden was much more aggressive in defending his ideas around healthcare and I want you to take a listen to specific bite of what he had to say. I think I know that the senator says she's for Bernie Yeah. I'm for Barack. I think the obamacare worked. I think the way we added to it replace everything that's been cut at a public option guarantee that everyone will be able to have affordable assurance. I guess we should clarify. Senator says she's for Bernie. He's he's referring to Elizabeth. Elizabeth Warren yes exactly and you know the Biden. Campaign sees this argument as a clear strength for him in war and world and people sort of laugh at the idea that health insurance people like their health insurance company. They'll say people like their doctor. They like their nurse and Massachusetts. Senator doesn't really want to take the bait in specifically wind Biden is pushing around this idea of taxes and costs which is something we saw last night. They feel like that's an intellectually dishonest honest argument about whether or not taxes on the middle class will go up the thing that really you ought to look at total cost but I would say look a lot of voters aren't going to get that distinction between between costs and and taxes kind of lost in the details what they're essentially acknowledging your taxes would go up aren't they but they're saying your other cost your other healthcare costs would go down in many cases so we've got Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren favouring Medicare for all but as Dominica mentioned Joe Biden was not the only person saying wait but let's do something a little more a little more moderate here and Dominica just mentioned actually specifically Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar who defended many times this idea of healthcare Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders has made a point of saying he wrote the Damn Bill around Medicare for all so he knows that people are mischaracterizing it well. Here's what Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar had to say about that while Bernie wrote the bill I read the bill and on page eight age eight of the bill. It says that we will no longer have private insurance as we know it. I don't think that's a bold idea. I think it's it's a bad idea and this idea of eliminating choice is something we also heard from south. Bend Indiana me or Buddha judge who tied his idea his plan called a medicare for all who want it and basically he says that you should trust the American voters to do what they want to have the sense to choose what they opt for okay so quite substantive debate bait there. Maybe not a lot that was new but people could sit there and look at the differences between the candidates. Now we mentioned that there were ten Democrats on stage but sometimes it seemed seemed almost like there were eleven. Let's listen I WANNA give credit I to Barack Obama for really bringing us this far. We we all know huge debt to President Obama who fundamentally transformed healthcare in America and of course we owe a debt of gratitude to President Barack Obama Dominica at sounds like President Obama had a pretty good bay. It's quite a difference from what we've heard in past debates when they've been pretty critical of Obama's tenure as not progressive aggressive enough of those newly warm feelings tell me they recognize Biden still in the lead and just how important older black voters who've been really supporting Biden are to who wins this nomination. I mean President Obama is still very popular within the Democratic Party and a lot of voters who we've talked to on the campaign trail sorta chafed at this idea that there were sort of dismissing him especially with President trump in the White House. They're saying well. How far do they want to go? we kind of liked to what President Obama had to do. I guess we should be explicit about this of course Joe Biden. Having Been Barack Obama's vice president naturally associated with Obama's record Glenn he's wrapped himself in President Obama and everyone else has sort of seeded the lane which was kind of jaw dropping to be totally honest. There was also a difference last night on gun laws Beto total rourke Democrat of Texas noted early on that his city. I'll pass oh just suffered a mass shooting just weeks ago and he was pretty definite about assault style rifles hell yes. We're GONNA take your fifteen. Ak47 what does he want to do. And how does that. Compare to the other candidates on stage so he's proposing a mandatory gun buyback program Stephen you heard that line was so enthusiastically received in the debate hall all but that that just shows you. It's really popular maybe with the activist base of the Democratic Party. Most of the candidates do agree on some sort of version of voluntary gun buyback back program but our work is going further with this mandatory idea. I think what's really interesting. Is that when you look at the broader electorate mandatory Tori gun buybacks are really controversial recent. NPR PBS Newshour Mayor's poll found that forty six percent of Americans are against Congress passing such legislation Asian forty five percent are in favour and really the divide splits along partisan lines Dominica one of the question for you. We've talked about the five or six leading candidates. It's did anybody a little bit further down in the polls standout. All you know you look at over work. I mean he certainly was in full remote reboot mode of his candidacy and all these other candidates are starting to feel the heat and they were really trying some hail Marys yet Andrew Yang with this competition to give out a thousand dollars to to ten different people. Amy Klobuchar went for broke in the moderate Lane it who Leon Castro forcefully going after Joe Biden at several turns so you had a lot out of these candidates realizing that votes are going to be cast shortly and had to take some risks last night the Medico s Mahala. Thanks so much you're welcome. That's that's. NPR's here's dominicos Montinaro and NPR's Esfahan. The trump administration is changing what qualifies is as the waters of the United States the head of the Environmental Protection Agency signed off on the repeal of an Obama era era regulation for many years federal law has aimed to limit pollution in lakes and rivers the administration of President Obama extended that rule in ways that would regulate pollution on wetlands and smaller waterways they were to be regulated in part because they flow into the bigger waterways. EPA Administrator a straighter Andrew Wheeler argued that rolling back that rule would reassure farmers and home builders and landowners NPR's brought is covering this story for us and he's on the line naked morning hey steve what regulation exactly so what scrapping regulation that was finalized in the waning days of the Obama Administration called the waters of the the US rule or for short okay because you know as well as I do Steve Every federal policies only as strong as its acronym. That's not on August acronym. I got but anyway go basically with the waters United States did was tried to define which rivers streams wetlands and lakes should deserve protection under the Clean Water Act the clean water act itself largely limits pollution in big navigable waterways. That's the term in the actual statute but court decisions including a ruling from the Supreme Court left the door or open for protections to expand off of those bigger waterways so like you said not just the river but the stream that feeds into it or the wetland next to it and Obama wanted to basically officially officially extend federal water protections to that larger connected water system with this regulation. I guess we should just underline the basic problem. Here is gravity. You want to protect the rivers. The Big rivers offers you WANNA protect the big lakes but essentially all land I mean everything flows downhill into something and so how do you how far you extend that protection inland. Why did the trump trump administration consider Obama's approach to be a power grab? Well you know this change was not terribly popular with a number of groups farmers developers minors they saw all this is they did many Obama environmental regulations as a federal land grab in an overreach of what the Clean Water Act was actually intended to do and look the rules certainly expanded federal water protections to new waterways but was I think was as is the case with a lot of these policies one way or the other There's a lot of rhetoric where the on the ground impact is a a little harder to discern part of that be in this rule is because it was immediately challenged in court by some of the groups that we just mentioned and the trump administration was clear from let's start that this rule was one of its top environmental targets so in some ways it was kind of a dead rule walking. Oh so we never really found out how much landowners and other other people might have been affected had this rule been fully implemented. No it was only implemented in two thousand fifteen and and and was challenged by a number of states so do we have any sense now of how landowners and other people will be affected now that the rule is conclusively debt again say you know those groups are groups are thrilled ruled by this decision. EPA Chief Andrew Wheeler announced repeal to applause at the National Association of Manufacturers Headquarters yesterday but this rule like many many of the trump administration's regulatory rollbacks is going to be challenged in court so at the end of the day the impact is probably going to be discerned by court decision very very briefly as my drinking water is supposed to be affected by this again hard to say you know in the media the federal water protections are GonNa Revert back to where they were in nineteen

"By Beto, the Reuters reporter had the story he asked about it battle confirmed. It was true. This guy sat on the story all during the O'Rourke. Ted Cruz Senate campaign. It was embargoed. He said he was doing this. Because he was writing a book. This was not this reporting that uncovered that oh having fantasies about running over kids with his car. He didn't uncover that as part of his day job as a reporter of the news. He came across this as an author, and therefore he was within his rights to withhold the story until after the election for his book. And then he wrote the story came out last week. And I forget the guy's name Reuters. But he's come under a lot of vicious attacks by some he's getting praise. He's not the first guy to learn things in a campaign and bury them for a book later, particularly embarrassing things. But when I saw this folks, it's when I first began to think that the source for this has to be Democrats who do not want a white male as their nominee. Mean who in the world was Reuters, which is a left wing news organization. They had the story. They had the details on and by the way Beddoes fantasy about running over kids with his car is not the only thing embarrassing from those days. This. This was a it was a murder mystery. It was a murder fantasy piece. That bet over wrote. Where the narrator runs over children in the street with a car, and it was last Friday that Reuters published this piece revealing Beto was a member of the hacking group cult of the dead cow. So Beto has now apologized for this. And that's what he's doing this stuff that I did my past it. Nobody's going to hold it against me. This is the stuff. He's talking about. Nobody's going to hold it against me. It's not going to have an impact on my race in two thousand twenty. Nobody's going to care about it by then. And I think he's saying this largely because of the experience with President Trump lots of things like the access Hollywood video didn't damage Trump. So a lot of these presidential candidates are thinking that the old rules are dead and all this stuff in your past. As a candidate is not going to hurt you anymore. I think they're making a mistake because they still don't understand why Trump. Was not held to account on those things and let me just tell you Beto O'Rourke is not Donald Trump. There's a whole story here on how this Reuters reporter uncovered this story and sat on it. Once this clown's name, this Reuters Joseph men M E end. We've also learned that Beddoe has. Written poems. Betto is a is a poet. I can't read this poem to you. After take a brief tie can't read. Listen to rush Limbaugh's award winning radio show any time. Just download the rush twenty four seven.

The thing that is number one on drudge today Beto announced that he's running the people are aflutter. So our Beddoes hands his. Pain announcement is just has some of the wilder hand gestures. I have to side with president messy bitch on this one. Because he immediately called her out. He's he looks like crazy. He said that about is about all his January. Yeah. That's what Trump said about Trump like the finger-wagging Senator like the president of finger right near he just over gestured a little bit, y'all. He was talking with his hands. Yeah. Like hitting a rapper something he was hitting every syllable. It was like a rapper who was overdoing it with their hands. Yes. Like like in the Vanity Fair article. He had that like picture where he just looks like Matthew, mcconaughey and the Lincoln ads. Yeah. Is so I like why is why is Vanity Fair making him look like G Q like they're wrong magazine there they'll because Vanity Fair needs so desperately for someone else to be present. Like, okay. This guy's great. He's got great bone structure. Right. He fits in regular grades. It really is. It's like he on the cover. He's like I was born for this. Right. What the fuck? Did you say all out? Yes, what he's a gap print that. Divine right of pass. Right. It was born for this. I had is born to this. I mean for this. Yeah. I had a moment last year. It's time to make it a moment for four years. Right. And a moment that he didn't win by the way. That's what's crazy about this whole thing. Yeah. I mean, that's why a lot of like. Okay. I mean, thank you. Glad you have another person it great that. There are so many people who I could be like I could see this person maybe doing something. But I don't know yet. I all I know is what happened then. But I can't apply any of that to the presidential race. Totally. It seems like, you know, we don't know much about what his policies are going to be what what his positions even are on things. But it seems like he is getting whatever the opposite of the benefit of the doubt that women. Don't get right. Like, she's just not presidential or whatever. He's getting the inverse of that where people are just like, I don't know make him president look at this fucking picture. I'm in. Guys. Just crushing it with that. Joe line get that. I mean, I think he has kids to that. He like talks to. Yeah. And a wife who sits silently by his side and smiles during his thing, which that's not her fault. But it just weird optics. Yeah. They could have presented that a little bit differently. Yeah. He's yeah. There's that picture in the in the article that's like plaguing these playing instruments with his kids has like. Yeah. Cute. But you know, what? I don't have time for it right now. Yeah. Those hands are about forty percent to live up to eighty percent at times he gets some under control towards the end. But then he gestures. Thank you. Like, he's just like dropping the Mike. Clearly, it's it's a lot. It's like his hands were. I bet you could overdubbed Busta rhymes of verse from look at me now right over that. And just a way his hands. There's about the same speed as that one. That's like every bus drives music video from the late nineties. I think oh my God. What was his big song from names jawline check? No right after that. Some more give me some mode. Yeah. I just remember that video he had a lot of the hands were flying at the kiss. But that was his thing like the fish islands where like it would like come right at you. I mean, that's the all those high Williams videos. I mean, we're great ones FOX is still trying to figure out how they're going to come at Beto.

"Mortgage fraud conspiracy, falsifying business records a scheme to defraud. The important thing about the New York state case is that the president cannot pardon people for state crimes. Well, and there's some concern that this would be violating double jeopardy and charging him for the same crime. So we'll see I something tells me that they wouldn't indict him if they didn't feel like they had a good basis for moving forward despite the double jeopardy concerns. So we'll see what happens with Paul Manafort. We. Big news on the twenty twenty race on the democratic side. The man who only goes by one name beta was running and it was quite the rollout. Let me say. So everybody's just been hanging around waiting and waiting and here comes Vanity Fair with Beto in kind of a casual ranch vibe right saying, I just was born for this. And then he did this weird video on this strange couch with like nineteen eighties pillows, I'm I'm really struck by the scene of this video. I don't understand it. And I know that this is not like intellectual commentary, but I'm just gonna say for a second all of the build up here. I thought his actual announcement was real bizarre. Yeah. If I got confirmed by text message to a local television station, and then we had this video in which he is very hyped up. And then you have the Vanity Fair piece. Which is also a little fluffy smooth. Yeah. It's like, it's very emotional. It's very it's not highly choreographed, and I get that's what people like about Bego. I think that's part of his appeal is people feel like they're getting the real deal. But I if I'm being very honest was a little put off by his tone, and by his by the sort of celebrity nature of the roll out by the lack of substance because mainly because like you said there's so much anticipation. It took so long and there's so much build up and instead of saying I thought carefully about this. Here's why I'm the right person in here is my plan. It was like, you know, Oprah begged into and he just thinks he's born to do it and his wife the one raising his kids. Anyway, I don't know. I just I was not feeling I'm going to be real honest. I think Iraq was a really good candidate to run for Senate in. Texas, and I don't quite understand why after losing to Ted Cruz, but making huge gains in Texas for the Democratic Party. He didn't say, hey that John Cornyn is up for re election. Maybe I'll run against him. I think he would have been a really good candidate to continue working for a Senate seat in Texas. And I just don't get the reason for being in on the presidential stage with him. I understand that people like him. I understand parts of why people like him. He is exceptionally good at talking about some really hard topics. Someone a message on Instagram saying, I think he does what y'all do. And I think that's awesome. Also, I don't think I need to run for president. And I love you. But I don't think you're there either. Right. Like, I think he could do so much good. If he weren't trying to ride his own star power. And instead just continuing to do the work in front of him. Yeah. It's just this. This whole narrative of death. Estany? And this is the moment. And I'm born to take advantage of it. I'm just look, I I'm really gun shy about that. I'm really not into that. I don't want that to be the argument for why this is a better choice than Donald Trump because for a large portion of America that means absolutely nothing to them. Do I think it's energizing to the democratic base?.

I wasn't expecting her to know that he's doing this work for his father in law. Yeah. And so he eventually Beto up stains from voting and then before he is back into a corner. Ultimately on this project. It just gets dropped. Why does the project get dropped? You may ask. Beddoes off the hook. It's because the citizens of Texas. In the meantime, had voted to ban in Texas, imminent, domain for private purposes. And that's the only reason this thing fell through. It's obviously what the resident there was worried about. She's worried about losing your home to imminent domain, and because he was going to come in and build this huge complex. And so that's her opinion. Of course, his father in law. I mean, there's no way to prove that it's your opinion. I mean, just because I am married to that man daughter doesn't necessarily mean. He's my father-in-law. No. That's your opinion. I mean, you gotta have a better answer ready to go the net Netto. Hypocrites. Yeah. Boy. Married in the some wealth. You know, he did you know, he did he's all set. That's why he doesn't care about the rest the rest of humanity taking advantage of capitalism. He's gonna slam the door shut in their faces. I mean, this guy won't even share. Part of his campaign funds with other Democrats unequivocally said, no he's not sharing that that's for. That's for him. That's for Texas. I'm doing that. I'm spending every penny on Spotify right now. So it's not a share. A guy who believes in wealth redistribution. Yeah. You'd expect more right? You'd expect to maybe share with some of his fellow Democrats. What you don't you don't care about regaining control of the house, for instance. And I think that that is I think the only daughter, but by the way, like I think she's an only child so those wife. Yeah. Bettas wife. So I think that the I mean, it's there's you know when so anyway, well, get use it. It's it's a legal to use that for who cares. Personal life stuff. A rich white guy bread. That mean, he's in the wrong party. I thought only rich white guys were Republicans. And I thought that the rich white guys only got their money from inheriting it. And in this case marrying into it in inheriting. So anyway, just Texas. Don't screw this up, by the way, look at this. While you were speaking there, I found a new poll just came out UT Tyler poll shows the lead is down to three point six for Ted Cruz police that so that's an average.

Then if it's just one poll, I mean, it's been as low as one, and so if he's spending all of this money, and he's only course. Of course. I mean, there's still some time he could narrow the gap even more. But I I opened I've already early voted. So me too. I'm. I'm done. I couldn't push the button hard enough for Ted Cruz.

Please by all that is. Holy. So anyway, Ted Cruz still leads Beto by five percentage points. According to a new poll from Quinnipiac poll was released yesterday with so it was just over a week before it was eight days before the election now at seven found that fifty one percent of likely voters favor. Crews forty six percent favor Betto. Just forty six. Three percent undecided. Fifty one forty six fifty one forty six to three nearly all polling of the competitive. Senate race here Texas has found crews leading I think every single one I've seen I've never seen him trailing. I've never he hasn't been behind or even tied. So. Look polls are polls. But at this is fifty one to forty six three are undecided. In theory, those committed to Ted, you know, the majority at least, you know, it's not like it's forty five forty four with right? Nine percent, or whatever. It is. Terrible. At math eleven percent undecided. So that's a good sign, especially when you factor in early voting is more than halfway done. So hopefully, a lot of these votes are already been cast for the race for governor. Greg Abbott is way ahead ninety one. It should be it isn't, but he's leading Lupe Valdez by twenty points, fifty eight thirty eight that's, you know, Ted should be up at least that Ted should be up by by fifty eight thirty two thirty was your prediction with sixty two thirty eight Ted. And then you changed it. I'm saying temple weeks ago. You said fifty five forty five you still stick at four. I'm particularly ten points. Yeah. At least in. Points. We'll see I mean, I could be completely wrong Beto could win this thing. And then I mean, what a disaster that would be the I don't want your eating your underwear. No, all my gosh.

I can lure him over on. Here's the problem for Beto in every election for generation. Texas has looked a lot more like CJ. Then it's looked like Mary or even Mary's Beto curious, Republican husband. And when you talk to the people who study Texas politics, they think that's going to be very hard to change. Well, I mean, I think if you go back to March twenty seventeen before. Betto became Beto you know, you saw somebody looking at a at a pretty pretty big hole. That's Jim Henson. He's the director of the Texas politics project at UT when he looks at Texas. Even this year, he sees huge advantages for the Republicans at the time that Betto declares, you're going into an election in which any statewide democrat, probably starting at, you know, reasonable people can disagree call fifteen point deficit previous candidate that had you know, lots of high hopes pinned on her, Wendy Davis went through a fall election with national attention and talk of turning Texas purple, if not blue and lost a Greg Abbott by twenty points. Jim ticks off what has happened to the Democrats after two decades completely out of power there fundraising's week, their bench of candidates is shallow. They don't have the think tanks or policy institutes or reclusive billionaires. Ready to create super PACS to force their pet issues in anointed candidates on the public. There are in fact as many Texans who identify as Democrats as Republicans. But when it comes to actually showing up on election day, the numbers aren't even close and somebody that is running as of March, seventeen, and in probably going forward. But looking at the situation on the ground, then pretty bereft of organizational support. What I'd also say is, you know, it's important to note that at that point, how much of an outlier Aurore was that's Josh blank. He's the director of polling and research at the Texas politics project. He works with Jim. I mean, there were no other Democrats chomping at the bit to run statewide despite the fact there's a Republican in the White House. Generally speaking, you expect to see more out party candidates running, especially in that first midterm election, you know, whereas a rook was clearly, you know, enthusiastically running for the Senate seat, no clear candidate for governor no candidate for. Attorney general no candidate for Lieutenant governor and really thin pickings in terms of figuring out who those people were going to be. I think that's actually probably more accurate picture of what it looked like for Democrats at that time, the racist tightened considerably since then. So where did you Josh stand now? Well, last week they published an article with the headline. Beto Aurora won't be Ted Cruz in Texas. Here's why auroras chances have moved up appreciably if not hugely beyond non zero probability of winning..

In that picture. He was in the the punk rock band FOSS at the time and producing music like this. They went on good morning pass. Oh, I think was the name of the show.
