Don't know it'll be a tough state Zona it's went out and and valves race against marco and floyd like you say that that's that's unpredictable. Totally i mean. Baoding's was the best fundraiser. For the quarter. She erased eight and a half million dollars. Rubia had the fourth largest fundraising quarter at around six million and he's got a bunch of money in the bank they're gonna raise both sides in a race ungodly amounts of money. That insists is a superstar. We know that she's gonna raise all the money she needs. But then it's florida. It is frigging florida. Every racist is Is tight you have a rick. Scott beat than bill nelson in the senate race Last cycle even by thirty was twelve. Thousand bucks we lost. The governor's race by thirty thousand votes. The scientists literally one by third of a percent. Florida has a habit of breaking our hearts. But it's so close. It's it's right there so it's definitely definitely possible. This is one of those places where investing in the organizations on underground. Doing organizing today can pay huge dividends in not just those those federal races. Statewide races like the government. I mean the santa's thinks he's running for president twenty twenty four. What happens if you lose this next year in two sentences dangerous. I'm gonna tell you right now. At the santa's is actually credible candidate to defeat by if he's the nominee he is getting that passionate trump vote in a way that nobody else is ads. Making a play for it but the santa's right now is the heir-apparent if trump does not run so yeah defeating him next year can help us in two thousand twenty four definitely helps us at the state level. It helps us with enough by wins. Twenty two in a florida by a few thousand votes because also keep in mind by two thousand. People are dying a day in florida right now. Sorry a week or two thousand nine every week mostly trump supporters. it's it's it's rural rural republicans and so given how close florida elections have been. There's a real possibility that that that democrats can win narrowly by the margin of the cova death toll. That they're not how do you. How are you aware of that. And they are concerned about this.

"By they want to build a more permanent presence on and the moon base on the surface of the moon space station in orbit around the moon. And what we know. Now that we didn't know during apollo is that there is water in the form of ice on the polls of the moon and that's important not just to sustain human life but water hydrogen oxygen can be used as a rocket fuel and propellant to allow us to go further. You think of the moon is like a gas station in space and that allows you to go further while at the same time helping to build the sort of commercial space industry and a lot of people think that a space if we can access it more efficiently and more cheaply than that could actually open up a new economic sphere. Not unlike what we saw with the advent of the internet at this point what are these advancements in space. What value do they have from a geopolitical perspective for our country. That's another great question so just think about the partnerships on the international space station. Where you've got things. Something like nineteen countries working together meant an enormous amount of work to keep astronauts alive in space and on the ground. There are all sorts of enormous geopolitical tensions between the united states and russia for example. But when it comes to space and partnering on the international space station they work in lockstep with each other at the same time. You're seen a growing space race. And there's some debate over this. Between the united states and china. China has shown that they have huge ambitions in space. They landed a spacecraft on the far side of the moon which no one had ever done. It just landed a rover on mars joining the united states to be able to do that. They launched their own space station into low earth orbit and are talking about partnering not only with russia but with other countries as well at a time when the international space station which is an endeavor effort led by the united states is getting older and it's unclear how much longer that will stay up there. China has shown that it has huge space ambitions and nasa administrator bill nelson has talked about one of the reasons why we need to keep exploring is the you know to make sure there's democratic american values that extend into space all right. Kristen my last question for you. You have been closely following this modern space race. What do you think will be the next phase for space exploration and is the us position to be a leader. I think the next chapter. Is you go from mercury gemini. Apollo space shuttle space station to this commercial space era. I'm really interested in human spaceflight. And it's fascinating to me that you've got not just like a jeff bezos on richard branson going up. But that soon you could have a lot more people and if you think about in the history of the world only about five hundred seventy people have ever been to space and within a five year. Say they're able to do it safely. And reliably that number grows to five thousand ten thousand fifteen thousand over the years and you have a new generation of people who have seen the earth from a distance who have seen the thin line of the atmosphere land masses without borders. that could have a profound effect. I mean remember that image taken from the apollo era of the earth pale blue dot hanging in that inky darkness of space that helped touch off the environmental movement in earth day in it's one of the most reproduced photos in the history of photography. So i think that could have a profound societal effect. And we're starting to see this with spacex and a company called axiom space taking more and more people not just unstable orbital space tourism trips but all the way to orbit as well so i think that is something to look for for sure convinced. You have the coolest job at the washington post stint..

"It's where ended up. So i think those policy issues are not so much funding issues. And i think that no congress has a lot of work to do on that you mentioned In our emails before this set up you wanted to talk a little bit about the space. Act that that got through. The senate had a long history. I don't remember how far back this goes throughout the various incarnations of it This was wicker who has been around a while. I think he was talked a lot about in the press when bill nelson is making his way through confirmation hearings because wicker had a lot to do with the space policy of your that created us less and i think wasn't wicked the third leg of the stool there between nelson k. k. bailey hutchinson and I confess i don't remember how much gold in that i. I remembered this nelson hutchison. I might be thinking because of the whole test. Stand that got built. That was completely useless. That was but anyway. Pass things aside. What's up with the space. Act these days well. I think it's interesting. That wicker wicker seems to be the person who still cares. A lot about this issue is trying to get something done and they did finally. Finally they finally money for the office space commerce as part of noah to do this work at it just seems as though the all gone out of the balloon since the administration changed and a lot of the people who were there in the office space commerce for political appointees they were there in term appointments that have now expired in the last i heard noah was sort of doing a ab nitrous a formal analysis of alternatives. But something like that sort of revisiting the whole thing all over again in. It's a shame because it had some momentum with the tiny amount of money kevin o'connell and his team have they actually are making a lot of progress. And so it's perplexing to me is to why they're neglecting this after. They finally convinced to give them. If it's still a meager amount of money in government terms but at least it's ten million dollars. I think it was the total instead of two million. So they're making progress doing a good job and everybody that i ever thought that they were really getting getting further along in this. I came the oh adc. I don't remember what the acronym stands for its data repository open on open data architecture open on our data and they were really making progress on it so i think that that's a shame that the that's fallen through the cracks in whipper seems to still care about it and at least he's got a bill through the senate but it's know it's part of this gigantic. Us innovation and competition apt. That the all certainly is going to be broken into pieces when stuck within the house. So we'll see how far the house comes on this on all these issues that on the nasa authorization on all the other things that are pending. Yeah let's get into the nasa authorization. Which probably would have thought we would start off with. But we'd like to just change. Everyone's mind on things start off with something they didn't expect but same situation here. The house is we're waiting to see what they're going to do with this thing I want to talk about some of the tactics behind the nasa authorization but not the appropriation. So they are now authorized by senate while the house does to spend ten billion on another lander system for the human landing system. I we always all a writing. This is an authorization on appropriation. But there's a lot of people out there that might not know what to make of that. So tactically what does that matter. And how does that. Impact nasa just. Let's just say the house went for it was ten billion dollars authorization but not an appropriation. What does nasa do at that. Point with an unfunded mandate well. it's unfunded is the point. i'm not sure it's a mandate. Even i mean an unfunded mandate by law. You must do something but in an authorization bill like that. You don't have to build the second. Lander unfunded thing that you might wanna do. You should consider it gives you permission to build a second lander but in terms of the amount of money. That's available to to do that. It has to come through the appropriations so you know again. It gives you permission. So why is there a money figure written into authorization than while the authorizer is very often put dollar numbers in there even though they know that they may not match up with appropriations back in the day nasa would get authorization bill every year and the authorizer who were big nestle supporters with q. Giovanna money's in the authorization bills in the appropriators. Who had other things they had to pay for would put in much less. And so if you've been around space policy for a long time you know. Never pay attention to the numbers to turn on authorization l. You you learn that pretty early marie force. You hardly ever get an authorization. Bill in what they've been doing is by the time they get done with the authorization. The appropriations already passed and they just take the numbers on the appropriation villain. Stick them in there so in this case and authorization bill is moving before an appropriation bill and we should see what's in those appropriation bills pretty soon by the way so. The house appropriations committee is gonna mark up. The bill is next week at some committee. I think it's coming up pretty soon. So at least we'll know what the house wants to do. But e can put any number you want in an authorization bill and the less the appropriators along do you don't have that money jury and it doesn't matter what the authorizer so said. All it matters is lending the appropriations bill and again. The authorizer are setting policy. So the policy can be that you should have an doesn't actually say to h walesa says more than one so it could be three could be however meant but it does give them permission to have additional h ls and encourages them to have additional. Hls but the ten billion dollars. There is a number that the committee came up with that they thought was the right amount of money that was going to be needed over five years. This wasn't all in one year was over five years in order to pay for that. So is it. Should we look at it more like the the people on that authorization committee putting a statement out about what is important them and then we'll have the counterpart about you know. Well okay. that's great that it's important to you but we can only spend xyz on it. And i guess a lot of times it's written about like the senate wants nasa to thing and it's like well that was the result of it but it was like a couple of people in senate that thought one thing in a couple of people that thought it's something else So when you're trying to have a lesson learned from this kind of thing. Going through is the storyline as simple as xyz very powerful person on the authorisation committee really cares about having this language in there or is there a larger trend to to take out of.

I have a question about the political parties. There's absolutely nothing wrong with a Democrat Pratt. Raising a certain amount of money for the Democratic Party. A Republican elected official raising money for the Republican Party. Parties need a certain amount of money in order to function. And they they they have a role but it sure seems like members of Congress are required to spend an inordinate amount of their time time raising money. For the Party's one is that true and two. Is it healthy and three. If it's not hot healthy is there anything we can do about it. It's not so much raising money for the party. It's raising money for yourself to be able to be competitive in the next election and when you get in an election that is as big as the third largest state in the union and you're talking about millions of dollars and you go around scratching with your Little Tin Cup trying to raise the the nickels and dimes for that kind of size of a budget. JUST IRAN TV if you want to run a thousand gross rating points in Florida in every TV market for one week. It's GONNA cost you three million in numbers just one week and a thousand Grosz rating points is not a heavy by. It's a moderate by so you see what it's become and it's gotten to the point that what are being elected or people of enormous individual wealth. The one of the exceptions by the way I think in this Democratic primary right now for president it is. The billionaire is still pulling at one or two percent but money talks and money influences elections. And it's becoming all the more accentuated because now everybody everybody does not get their news from television in a campaign like they used to and so now we have the facebook ads and the digital ads and the campaigns. All right now if that's not enough how about now. The influence silence outside of the United States foreign countries. Russia did it the last two times you watch. They're going to be other countries that are going to get in on it this time and it's very subtle. It's placing an article that that people believe they're reading online and they believe that it's true and it may have nothing to do with the truth and of course this works both ways against both parties as we will see and as we are seeing as we speak as Zuckerberg is testifying in front of Congress and where this is all going and still protecting the freedom of speech the First Amendment freedoms is is all going to be tested in the future and it's going to be severely tested because says if you can't have an election that there is a basic reservoir of what is and is not fat then it becomes very dangerous as to what the outcome is going to be on misinformation instead of factual information. This is a strange range. Question perhaps any advice on how to pick a news source. How do you know who to believe? Well one of the things. I've found myself doing his turning off the Cable News. It's just more of the same. It just goes on and on and on And often the people up there rendering their opinion. Don't know half as much as I know about the issue and yet they are being the ones that are communicating out. I think you've got to find a good reputable double news source. I'm not trying to play to the home crowd but the ledger one way or another other is going to be fairly good at the end of the day you get into your national papers. The Wall Street Journal Darnell The New York Times The Washington Post. You'RE GONNA get good information out of those papers they're gonNa have their biases but the question is you've got to work your way through those biases. Someone has asked when you began. Gann your political career. What was the biggest challenge you faced? I was just happy as a clam. I was scared the death because it was the election of seventy two and at the top of the ticket was Richard Nixon and George McGovern and and I knew that George McGovern one gonna get many votes in my eye legislative district which was all of bravado. County was a multi member Knbr district back then all of avoid county and eastern half of Orange County and so grace and I worked at like dogs dogs with knock on doors and she'd be standing there with me and it didn't take me too long to know that I was wasting her time. She was so good she was a natural and she was a brand new bride. So I put grace okay. So on the other side of the street and we'd go down opposite sides of the street knocking on doors and we could cover twice as much territory. And I've I've got to tell you what happened to gray. She came to a house. She couldn't get to the front door because of the sprinklers. And she's this new bride Ed and she is just. She's approaching every front door with a messianic mission. She GonNa get the votes for her husband and so she can't get in the front door because of the water but the garage doors open so she walks into into the open garage into the inside door and rings the doorbell. It's not the doorbell. It's the garage door closer..

"This is Florida matters. I'm Robin Sesing. Ham Former Senator Bill Nelson recently spoke at Southeastern University in Lakeland where the new American Center for political leadership presented Nelson with an award for his long public service. It was a rare public appearance since Rick. Scott narrowly defeated the incumbent Nelson and last year Senate race in a conversation with the ACP director former congressman. Dennis Ross and with former former state Senator Rick Dance Ler Nelson. A Democrat spoke of the importance of personal relationships among politicians rig dance ler kicked off the conversation one of the questions that I had kinda right out of the gate. When you were running in your last election I went to an event for you in Orlando and I heard you make the comment? That in this political environment is crazy as it seems up as down in down his up. Aw and I thought about that a lot and I wonder what you meant by that because it is I mean what you would normally expect in the body politic of the functioning of the constitution. Russian the gentlemanly way that in order to carry on a dialogue in the public discourse in the Public Blake arena. There has to be a modicum of civility. And we don't see a lot of that and it's getting worse there's and it didn't just start with this last administration. I've seen it very much change over the eighteen years that I was is in the Senate I've especially seen it chains since those early days of going to the state legislature where all of us would go up there and and Those of us who had young children with all bring them up for the two months of the session and we'd rent apartments and our kids would be the in and out of everybody else's apartment and it didn't make any difference whether the U. N. R. A. D.. We were all friends. And then we'd go out at at at night for supper and that was an accepted way of doing the public's business now that was back in the Dark Ages ages that was in the seventies and and yet I I saw that continue in my days in the House for example Tip O'Neill the speaker and Bob Michael the top Republican. They'd ED fight like cats and dogs but at the end of the day they were personal friends and so when it came time to do the deal you taught in college campuses about public service one of the case studies. This is nineteen eighty-three social security. was within six months going bankrupt. The president was Ronald Reagan. GD The speaker was tip. O'Neill too old Irishman that used to fight all the time but they had a personal friendship too and they decided we're going to solve this now. Social Security was a deadly issued. You if you dare voted on any cuts on social security you can be sure that your opponent in the next election was gonNA take you out but social security was going bankrupt in six months. Those too old Irishman got together. And they said we're going to solve this thing and we're gonNA take it off the table in the next election as Somerton to beat your opponent over the head with they said we're going to appoint a special blue ribbon committee. They're going to come back and report to the Congress. We passed it overwhelmingly really it made social security. That was almost bankrupt financially. Sound actuarially sound for the next half century. Now there is a good example of getting something done and something successfully successfully but can you imagine that being done today so you see the changes that have occurred word and it all comes back to the personal relationship. And how do you get along with each other. I told Bill Rusty earlier tonight. I said Go back and see what Marco Rubio said immediately Hedley after my farewell address and one of the things that he told funny anything that the Senate just broke up laughing when he said this he says you know the worst thing Bill Nelson ever said about me he said I. It was a moderate. It's good and and so you know that's the kind of relationship chip that we need to hear what happened. What caused the change? Well a number of things again. We're not talking about the present situation because each of you have your ideas about that but you have to go back to in the old days before I ever arrived in Congress when Congress was in session and there wasn't the jet airplane and and the members took their families to Washington and they all got to know each other as human beings. It was so much easier to do that relationship and yet we've had political combat ever since the beginning of the country. Ah We've had that throughout the ages sharp political debate but at the end of the day you got to do something L. Thick and you've got to have an environment in which to work so along the way what's happened is that members members. Don't go to Washington there there Tuesday through Thursday and they're gone and they don't build those relationships Everything is structured around the two parties one of the few times that the Democrats and the Republicans Republicans in the Senate met together was in the immediate aftermath of September. The eleventh and we all got together. You're in the Senate dining room and there were a lot of tears and we deferred to the senators from the states that had been attacked and there was unity. I remember when the Capitol Police kept saying don't come back after we at all evacuated Capitol Capitol Hill. We all wanted to come back and we all ended up spontaneously on the steps in the west of the east front steps and spontaneously broke out in singing. God bless America. Yeah so they are. There was unifying moments but they are less and less frequent another thing rick. That's it's contributed to. It is the Gerrymandering of districts. Now that's not so in the Senate but it's certainly true in the house. If a Congressional district does not represent the overall composition of the area and and is drawn with a computer to slice and dice the precincts to determine the outcome of the general election which you can undetermined with computers. Then you have just one point of view what you need as a representative tip of the country is a lot of points of view and then when you go to Washington your point of view is not the only one you ought to be listening to the other other people and their point of view geographical philosophical religious racial the whole bit and yet we are constantly dividing instead of unify and that is what the structures increasingly increasingly are promoting. I don't mean to get back to this gerrymandered district issue but it is such a big thing. I'm wondering if it has lessened crossover voters you know you talked about how it was in in the seventies I started in the eighties and as many of my contributions as I got from Democrats got from Republicans and I had just as much Republican sport. I had democratic support. And it just doesn't seem like that is the case anymore and is entirely gerrymander. The district's or does it get to other things such as where we get our news and do voters distinguish between cable news and entertainment or news. You know what I'm saying it. I guess I've got some follow up questions about that general thing but where people get get their news. Do you think that is has affected this as well. It's all of the above. Certainly a democracy say in order to be able to work you have to work from a common base of information that people will generally except if you do not have that ability to accept this information. Then it's going to be hard to get agreement. It's GonNa be hard to listen to the other fellow and his point of view and so the more that that is accentuated by virtue of how people get their news is clearly one of the contributing factors who among us reads the newspaper cover to cover. Well good for you. Is it just the ledger or are you reaching out into other sources of news says well and so this is the problem so you can pretty well when when you go into a household if they had it on a certain cable. TV You can pretty well tell their politics right off the bat that makes it more and more difficult for us to govern between the forty yard lines. This is Florida the matters. We're taking a short break. We'll be right back. I'm Robyn sussing Hammond. This is Florida matters. We're listening to a conversation with former senator Bill Nelson and recorded recently at southeastern universities American Center for Political Leadership. Senator Nelson is speaking with former Congressman Dennis. Ross who's also director director of the A. C. P. L. and with former state Senator Rick Dance Ler Senator. You talked about being interested in politics in high school and I can relate to that. was there anything in particular that motivated you. was there an event person. Or what would you say was the genesis this of your interest in public service started at such an early age when you were in high school. Did you have Kawana sponsored key club. Actually we we.

"Deal Jared Kushner, spoke at that and and Haley and others as they had named the time one hundred people whatever the story what? So Hillary really rolled out. Some aronie is information just completely not factual and get to that here in just a second. So what am I talking about? It turns out, and I have you know, an analysis. From tech crunch, for instance, tech crunch, computers, and technology. They put out a story last week on this about the the election hacky and in the mall report and get Florida in the spotlight because the reporting is is that at least one Florida county was hacked by the Russians. Now the Russians apparently made an attempt. In all Florida counties, and I'm gonna again story out from yesterday from the Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel regarding this and Broward County, and I'm sure the Russians talking Florida here. I'm sure the Russians attempted to hack election systems all over the country. I mean, the Chinese and the Russians there trying to bust into everything power grids infrastructure wherever. Espionage into corporations mainframes and computers. Trying to steal intellectual property. Listen, it's across the board the Russians and the Chinese are all over us. So what we know here is that Russian operatives. They targeted a whole lot of election systems, and you know, supervisors of elections all over the United States. But apparently what's getting the spotlight now is Florida and that at least one Florida county governmental supervisor of elections computers were hacked by the Russians as we were heading toward the twenty sixteen presidential election. Now, we don't know what county it was. And again, this was in the mullahs report when it dropped. This was forever to say. But it just getting a whole lot of attention in just the last two days. And well here the findings. I'll review the actual excerpt. Then I'll talk about Hillary Clinton just completely fabricating here in a second. Emily Muller report. This is a excerpt from the report in August, twenty sixteen GRU officers, and of course, GRU Russian intelligence. It says an August twenty sixteen GRU officers targeted employees of redacted a voting technology company that develops software used by numerous US counties to manage voter rolls and installed mala wear on the comp- on the company network, the spear phishing emails contained an attached word document coated with malicious software commonly referred to as a Trojan that permitted the GRU you to access the infected computer. And just talks about that. This is pretty significant because. Apparently, you know, Florida's election systems were targeted very very heavily. And was interesting here is a former US Senator Bill Nelson from Florida. He made claims. That Russians had gained access to the state's election systems. And a Bill Nelson was attacked on that. And I'm not a Bill Nelson fan really do. Nothing Bill Nelson. And of course, he was defeated. And he was shown the door and former Florida governor, Rick Scott. Be Bill Nelson. And of course, Rick Scott has that seat now. And I remember though that Bill Nelson was attacked because he claimed. That the Russians had gained access. And apparently in retrospect Bill Nelson was accurate that the Russians were were hacking, and they had to least one, but what was the no no here Bill Nelson. He reveal that information because he had access to classified information that was not supposed to be made public. So that's why he had that information so early and he should not have said that now regarding Hillary Clinton now again, this this whole big hoopla with the the time one hundred summit earlier this week and Hillary Clinton was there as she was on the time one hundred I guess and Hillary Clinton made the assertion earlier this week, I think it was Tuesday where she said that every Florida county election system was hacked during the twenty sixteen election that just not true. Every single election system in Florida was not hacked. And of course, you've got individual counties that handle their own elections. And then they all report back. To tallahassee. They all report back the Florida government. But they're they're run by independent supervisors of elections in the Florida counties, but for Hillary Clinton say that every single Florida a county an election system was hacked that is just blatantly untrue that is blatantly false. So then we swing into yesterday and today and the stories just getting a whole lot of ground. It was there in the mullahs report, but listening at four hundred eighty four whatever was how however many four to sixty whatever the the page count was so a lot of material obviously now the sun sentinel. This is the Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel. They reported yesterday that to Broward elections officials said that the elections offices main Email account. They were sent those phishing attempts by Russian hackers in the lead up to the twenty sixteen presidential election. Now, this is exactly in the same timeframe here and the story on to say that the tempts on Broward were part of a statewide attempt to hack election systems in the state of Florida, and this is the Cording to the model report. But they are saying that they were not hacked. The report noted that the F B I had found some one hundred forty elections officials were sent emails from Russian hackers for tending to be v are systems that might be the redaction there in the report, an elections technology company that contracts with the majority of Florida counties. So the story was anyone that opened their Email and then click an open the attachment. Well, that provided the little worm for them to gain access by planting this Mel wear and a back door way to get into the computer system. So they're saying that it wasn't them that the brow saying that there were attempts in Broward County, and they seem to be suggesting that they identified it and that they did not succumb not fall forward. I mean, that's what I'm surmising here because anyone that did open the Email the word document the attachment that would allow the hackers to gain access to the system. And what we do know though, is that. It least one elections official in one Florida county opened the infected mala wear attachment to allow the Russians to get into the system. But we don't know. And this is the gigantic mystery is which Canty who who did it. We don't know yet. I'm kind of believe the stories leak at some point. But which Florida county was infiltrated by the Russians. And what the hell did they do what access that they have? And were they able to manipulate anything? All this is a question, Mark. Now, we don't know publicly. I'm sure there's plenty known by the scenes, so that's the whole Florida. Right. Yeah. I saw that. So the FBI is gonna meet with with governor to Santa, and they're also going to meet with former governor, Scott. And now, of course, Senator Scott, apparently, so the FBI is going to give them. I would imagine a classified briefing on this eight hundred eight zero one eighty nine ninety nine nationwide number here on CNN it eight hundred eight zero one eighty nine ninety nine so Anita hill yet the Clarence Thomas hearings, the whole, you know, pubic hair on the coke deal. It's all coming back to bite Joe Biden in the. But so we'll explain all that coming up in just a bit here on this mother's day. For a limited time twenty three and me, they're taking thirty bucks off their health plus ancestry kit until may thirteenth. So you wanna talk about a great mother's day gift give mom a gift of knowing her ancestry. But you also have all of these these health windows that could be opened up and find out you know, any because of genetic predispositions potentially. I mean, it really is quite amazing now I did my twenty three and me kit. This is the Senate kits. I did mine some weeks ago. I got the results back, and it's just fascinating across the board. So I did the health plus ancestry kit that I'm talking about that oughta get mom for mother's day. And hey while you're at it. You know, hey, get one for yourself. Get one for other family members as well. I mean, we've got a great deal going on. On here. So with the health plus ancestry kit. You know, mom can celebrate genetic similarities with you. Differences. You can explore your shared connection with over one hundred twenty-five personalized genetic reports and these traits and again, my eyes were were opened the health traits. I mean, really is fascinating. You know, we all know about the genetic kits and you'll learning about your ancestry, and it was great to see confirmation of you know, where my genetic roots or from you know, where in Europe, my family, my mother's side. My father's side where they came from. And I always heard where we had come from. And you know, what areas on each side of the family and Twenty-three confirmed. He was just fascinating to see this and then with the added benefits of health. Plus, I folks this is a no brainer. So here's the deal, give mom an awesome gift. Get one for yourself or other family members as well..

Please this is. Yeah. You can't Mark my state. That's my job. Now. I. I live in a, you know, essentially, a socialist hellhole, but Florida is exactly the opposite eight years of you as governor the economy's booming. The people are happy you left the state house Terekhov Santa's he's got what sixty four percent approval rating, which reflects very well on you. Let me ask you something about next year. Are we going to keep Florida red for President Trump? Oh, absolutely. If you if you look at the president's done with listen number one means they wanted job, I grew up in public housing. I don't even know my dad, my mom myself to desk for work. I knew jobs reports, and we added one point seven million jobs economy, really well. The two Americans. Fight over border security is exactly. I want you to be safe. And then we don't care about your safety. And so you look at a national level those the two big issues. And so I think I think do really well. Let's let's turn to the international stage. There's a lot going on a lot that direct a Latin affects Florida very very directly. We'll talk about Venezuela. Venezuelan a second. But the president just come back from the North Korea summit, he's returned from Hanoi. And the the summit broke up without any kind of concrete result. We see a lot of keeps saying, hey, wait a minute. This is a marathon not a sprint. What's the feeling in the Senate is the feeling among the GOP caucus that? This was a success a failure. Is it Reykjavik two point? Oh. I think I think people know that. Hiring murder. He's out nuclear threat. I think. My discussion of their appreciated trying. Do you know increase safety for this country trying to? Denuclearized and people realize you have to walk away. Don't do deals thirty good bad for America. And so I'm glad the president. Did what business do if you don't get the others could say look not gonna do it. And you come home. You don't waste your time. So I think people like you. You know, he's working hard to get it done. But it hasn't happened. But we here's we've had at least some progress. Not shouldn't. Every day. Net area. So. A lot of pressure on on North Korea. He is the Senate going to do what it needs to do to give the president the military force in combat power. He needs to build up Florida's obviously a state on the ocean. Or are we going to get a three hundred and fifty fifty five ship navy as we need? I'm on armed services. And the chairman Jim in. I think. Explaining our need. We've had we've had a lot of hearing you talk about Russia and read it. China. They're not China and Russia. They're not our ally. Equally change, our, you know, our our own government. And I think all of us have to understand that when we. If you go out you buy Chinese products what you're doing. Spend money to build up their military to hurt us. So we we have to understand business. We should do business with China. We should do everything we can build American companies and American job and not up those countries. They are not. There is talk of a proposal by the navy to skip the mid life refueling of the US Truman in the twenty twenties, which would effectively drop our carrier fleet from eleven to ten would you support that? What what I wanna do? I wanna look into a military leaders. He would chairman has been doing. We'd had a lot of breathing and starts with it goes like China what Russians doing we have to understand that we are competing. And they're not our friend. And so I think what we ought to be doing as we listen to the experts military. Our job we need your purpose to fund make sure all Americans say, so I want all the lead of military. This is Kirk Schlinkert guest hosting for Hugh Hewitt. I'm here with Florida Senator Rick Scott. Senator scott. Florida has a huge population of as well and expatriots just like it has a huge population of Cuban expatriate, my my wife's family being among them the so what's happening in the socialist nightmare. That is then as Wael has got to be very very close to your heart. What do you think we should do there? Right. I think about my own style. Brings it. Blankets seven and under eighty percent of the kid under had some fall. Now nutrition ninety percent of families down there. Don't have enough money for food ninety percent. Medeiros murder drug traffickers, so Americans can in Alabama. The all this is this is you know, what would rock Obama did to? Appease, look disgusting. And so we've got to stand up stand up stand up our Rhonda. And so Trump has done the right thing. He'd recognize one glide L other leaders around the world to do the same. As the interim president. Individuals. Stop the flow of oil all those things put pressure on the military. It finally and do the right thing and backer. Life will leader one Guido. So we can't let up vice president Pence per going to last week. And we're working hard. I one thing could going to happen. It's my understanding that President Trump he can implement. Liberal artists the card which will allow American citizen unquote stolen, proudly now should put even more pressure now on the Cuban regime. There's no freedom there. The big problems. We do the Kingston got Missouri. We gotta get in Nicaragua. We gotta bring democracy to all three of those countries in Senator Scott, let me let me ask you flat out if what it takes to unseat the socialist dictator in Venezuela. Is United States troops on the ground in combat would you support that? Here's michael. Serving military. Nobody wants to willing to lead. Anybody warring harm's way. I think what we've gotta do. You gotta leave all the options on the table that I am hoping that was the sanctions world condemnation of Madeira the you'll get done without going to war at my goal is it makes everything on the table. Happy Prince Charles is right now and the next the next night. He's going to Cuba here. The prime minister is saying she supports blythedale in Venice. Cuban Doug are taking keeping a journal in power. And then she Opie sending Prince Charles down to Cuba and all he can do if a peeve. Dictatorship down there discussing I called for him not to come to places like Miami, or others and talk to dissident to see what was the Cubans are doing. What's going on in the country was just discussing socialism? Go go. The go-to Caracas and lived there for awhile. And he that's the type of government. Well, Senator Scott what's your red line in Venezuela? That if Maduro crosses it. You would support us going in as a killing Americans is it mass murder of events and people as a destruction of the refugee convoys what what is the red line that you would say Mr President. I will support you using American troops over through this communist dictator. I'd want to sit down before he's here that it. I don't want to sit down and really understand what military leaders what the options are what we could do right now at least important bettering on the belief that if we anxious at the sanctions. You can't get harder and harder and harder to get our currency. The military is going to change sides and goes, but we can sure hope that's true Senator Scott that was a Rick Scott of Florida, the great state of Florida. He says it's going.

China China and Russia are not they're not our ally clearly want to change our, you know, our our own government and not supportive of us. And I think all of us have to understand that when we.

We should do business with China. We do everything we can build American companies and American jobs and knock out those countries.

We're right after he. It's right, right. It's about the same time that I met met Brad when he was pouring his sorrows into a I think it was whiskey or bourbon. I'm not sure. Bourbon. But I'm something that smelled foul over the house low losses in in this midterm elections. And I think you and I met not long after. Yeah. No. I think that's a that that that's exactly right. And I'm sure it was bourbon and those were brutal six and eight all these young young guys on at least on my side of the guy on the Republican side who got into politics after two thousand eight they're all freaking out about eighteen. I said, you you guys know nothing this is that we can manage. We will work through this. This is not two thousand six or eight. Yeah. Absolutely. So how many seats did to Republicans lives in two thousand eighteen I literally lost count. Because I, you know, California. I don't know where they hand counting them. What's going on there? How many districts we long? Yeah. Oh, we broke. I guess we broke officially do. We break forty. But. Yeah. No, the California law. Is just a ridiculous. And of course, the Democrats we learned we were doing. Rick Scott's race against a Bill Nelson in Florida the Senate race, and that went into recount, and the Democrats filed what was it thirteen lawsuits and stayed in federal court what they really were trying to do. They knew they were they they had no chance on the recount. Although they're really trying to do is. They were Chad trying to get a federal ruling that when a allow them to change some of Florida's law towards the new California laws, which are just best. I can I'm not a lawyer. But the best interpretation is the law allows us to keep counting till we get what we want. Didn't happen. No. That didn't happen to you had some really great success stories this year, you were did the polling for Josh Holly in Missouri who was victorious over Claire mccaskill and for Rick. Rick Scott over Bill Nelson. And I can remember the day before the election and a call Brad who is always a hot mess right before the election. And he's like one percent or a head one percent. I believe it. I believe it and that helped completely trip. Yeah. We are tracking in the last week had us consistently at it actually just inside one percent of about eight tenths of a percent. Now ended up being even a little closer than that. But you know, anybody who's a student statistics knows that there's a little bit of luck in there because we're inside the margin of error, but we did consistently in that race habit. Really have us consistently up in a very very tight race turned out to be accurate. Same. We had the same sort of accuracy which alley. Oh that one was a lot easier. We knew that that was likely to be a an early night in Missouri. We knew that going into the race. So that which was certainly less stressful. What was the margin at the f- for the Holly win in Missouri? We we we needed up with six healthy one that's a healthy win. And it was tracking that way all year. It really well, it broke it broke early summer. We we'd been we had we had had us up all year, but it was tight, and then it really broke loose early summer. And they they have spent us significantly in not just the casco's campaign when you add up all the Democrats super PACS versus the Republican super PACS and the campaigns. They still outspend significantly. But you gotta remember that Trump won the state for almost twenty and purple Missouri in the last decade has been getting redder. You're so yeah, I think in two thousand and eight didn't make McCain everyone the assumption at the day of election day, two thousand eight was a bomb one missour-, but didn't McCain end up actually winning it.

There was a judge a Broward judge today who was appointed by Jeb Bush Republican appointing and he told the lawyers for Rick Scott and Bill Nelson and others. They need to ramp down the rhetoric. And he asked people to report actual evidence of election fraud if it exists. And he also said the transparency is imperative in this case and he's exactly right compare. What's being said by leaders here in Florida? To what's happening in Arizona, where state officials and candidates from both parties have been responsible with their rhetoric and laid low wall things are sorted out. Now, of course, there's an extra level of incompetence, Anna lack of transparency happening here in Florida. But even with that the comments were seen from prominent Democrats and Republicans just doesn't match the reality in many cases of what has happened. The Broward County supervisor of elections Brenda Snipes has got to go as soon as this is over. And that should be a move to me that receives bipartisan support she screwed up the ballot, which should anger Democrats because it might have cost them ascendancy. And at the end of all this and the job she's done has been the Pitta me of incompetence, which should anger everybody.
