"You have a very small margin here to actually influence but When an election is closed. 3% is the difference between night and day. I don't think he moved the needle. I think people were going to vote for Senator Leffler as well. A senator for do are still going to vote for them. I'm not sure he's actually increasing the vote Total and the phone call to a light Republican. Rapids. Berger and his dissension with a light Republican governor Brian Kip has not helped the Georgia Republican voter make their minds up any quicker. But that's that's for the hard core politicos, his his brawl with the governor and the and the secretary of state of Georgia. Um, when you give a speech like Trump gave It dominates local news coverage in your state dominated last night at 11, all TV news covered it dominated the morning programs in Georgia. Everybody was talking about it. That's the that is the effectiveness of that that he gets. Let me push back a little pension. He gets the attention of people who are like out there. They're kind of like not locked in, dialed in. Go ahead. Yeah, And I definitely get that and you have a good point. But let me push back a little bit on that, Um, you're right. A lot of local news carried it. I worked for a local news station here as their political analyst. We carried it as well. But he gave an 80 freaking minute speech. When somebody gives an 80 minute speech. There's a lot of content that you can actually play. A clip of that may not move the needle. And it may not actually conveyed the totality of the message that Donald Trump wanted to have it because he gave an 80 minute speech and sure I could make him look foolish if you wanted to. I don't know. Of local news. Georgia does that I'm not. That's not what I'm saying. What I'm saying is 80 minutes in a rally where people are excited to see a guy does not necessarily translate into a two minute sound bite on the local news and two weeks ago, Okay, I I could pull 10 sound bites out of there for 90 seconds. It's easy. Well, it just depends on how the producers do it. You're trying to push a different point. But I will say this 55% of those who consider themselves to be very conservative in the state of Georgia and opposed to we could go see two weeks ago, said that they're likely not to vote in this election because they don't like Donald Trump. And I would like a Democrat that would if that happens. Then the Democrats would win. So let's go to those Democrats. You interviewed them both. My assessment. Is that Mr Ass off 33 years old. He did a few documentaries but really have Ah, background That's impressive, with all due respect. Seems to be a very far left progressive guy. Am I assessing him the wrong way? Yeah, I think so. Hey, did work for Congressman John Lewis. He also worked for Congressman Hank Johnson on He's had a pretty stellar career A Z a as a documentarian and has exposed a lot of criminal corruption internationally. Some of that we actually highlighted on our local news as well as our radio platform. So he has a great career. He's only 33 Bill. That's the thing but he looks like he's a far left guy. I mean, he looks like he's buying into All the socialism and all the AOC stuff. I haven't seen any moderate or temporary statements from him. He's he's on board with this. Aggressive juggernaut, is he not? Like the fact he's a progressive and stands by the authenticity of his belief. One of the things he talked about on my show this morning was a plan for HBC use historically black colleges and universities, something that gets left out of the conversation. These institutions. I'm a graduate of one of them myself. These institutions are a mainstay and necessary inside of the African American community. Well, they're very expensive, the private ones in particular and he has a plan and the only candidate I've ever heard articulate a plan to make sure that Private Hbcu graduates can graduate debt free that connect with not on Lee black students, but it also connects with black parents who may have never gone to an expression. You have any problem, Harry He's going to carry 90% of the African American vote. There's no doubt about it now is not the issue. The issue isn't how many Although the percentage the issue is how many more can you excite who were not normally going toe? Come and collect, all right, And maybe they will. I don't know. Warn Arc is very radical. I mean, here's a guy to me. Um, I'm saying to myself, Wow. And you know, he comes across As a guy who practices identity politics and you're very well aware of what that is. Um and I I I I think La Flor has a better chance to defeat Warnicke. Than the other than a soft and the incumbent senator on the Republican side. Am I wrong there? Do you think you're wrong on that We're not actually enjoys a significant portion of the Christian evangelical faith community who has come out and support him. As a matter of fact, pastors wrote a letter and support of war knock in this sense, not as an endorsement, but they did not like the negative campaigning that was happening against him. And then they place ever needs a church. Inside of those commercials. There's a major local conservative talk radio personality right here in Atlanta, who Yesterday on his show went on a rant about Leffler and the negative campaigning and how it is not the way in Georgia, and he admitted he voted for war knock. It sent shock waves through local media this morning, but he's not alone in that sentiment. I think that may have overplayed their hand with this, You know, radical. This radical identity is certainly now. It's certainly a nasty campaign down between lost business or knock Purdue and also have not so much. It's a standard kind of issue. Hey, doctor, we appreciate you coming on and given us the underground in Georgia. Point of view and was okay. And if we're gonna help you out in any way you let us know, Okay, It's very nice. Vegas is thank you. Okay, So we're on this and tomorrow I will obviously covered but I'm going to tweet tonight. S o. You might dial into that I'll be watching the returns, obviously. So what happens in Washington tomorrow with the certification of Joe Biden as president? Each state as to certify the electoral college. So let me just give you the facts. Here's what what happens at one in the afternoon. Okay, Vice President, Pence calls. All of the elected. Senators and Congress people together in the House chamber. All right, so everybody is there. I know all their mass on on Okay. Now, then, each state has to certify the electoral vote. There are going to be at least 12, Republican senators and We don't know how many Republican Congress people that are going to object to certain states like Pennsylvania. Like Georgia, like Arizona, Michigan, Wisconsin, They're going to object. Certifying their votes, saying they're fraudulent. Okay, so now in each objection There is then a conference. Among the Senate senators and house people not together. They separate.
Trump uses Georgia rally to pressure GOP on Electoral College challenge
"Given 80 minutes speeches I reported last night in Georgia. I thought it was pretty effective in rallying Republicans. Do you disagree? I think Donald Trump has reached what we call market saturation. And that means you have so many individuals who have made up their mind not only about President Trump But also about everyone else. The last poll credible poll that came out about undecided voters had Georgia undecided voters who are likely to vote in the runoff at 3%. You have a very small margin here to actually influence but When an election is closed. 3% is the difference between night and day. I don't think he moved the needle.

"If you want to see the department public health data on the virus and all in the spread around the state text, the word data two, three, three, seven, seven, seven, text, the word data two, three, three, seven, seven, seven the Trend Lines Clark County are starting to improve a large portions of the state are starting to improve. There had been a little bit of a plateau. And people were starting to think we're going to see a big labor. Day. BUB. But that actually has not come the seven day moving average for the state right now based on date of onset of symptoms is a thousand, three, hundred, ninety eight to get anywhere near there. You've now got to go to June seventeenth, which was thousand three, hundred, twenty, nine You could arguably go to June eighteenth two, thousand four, hundred eleven we are at a thousand three, hundred, Ninety, eight right now. So we're still continuing to hit in the right direction trend lines of the state of Georgia continue to be good even despite, and this is the big thing even despite. The. Fear of Labor Day bump. It doesn't appear that we are seeing a Labor Day up. Here's the other thing you need to understand. The percent positive has gone up the moving average is about ten point two percent. and. The number of tests have definitely gone down the number of tests have gone down but the percent positive has it risen significantly. The seventy moving average back September fourteenth had been seven point seven has gone up to ten point to the rate of transmission for the state of Georgia. The RT live number four the state of Georgia is at point nine four. That's actually down two tenths of a point from last week. So in Georgia, despite Labor, day despite schools reopening despite colleges and universities reopening. The rate of transmission for the virus continues to do well. In the state of Georgia. The nightmare scenarios that so many members of the media have is shows. That maybe some of it is guided by politics and disdain I'm actually I am not surprised I do you understand this? I'm not surprised I do think it's unfortunate that there are a lot of people out there who have based their analysis of a virus. On partisanship. And the presumption that our Republican. Governors were going to do worse. Nothing has happened as bad as what happened in New York, and new. Jersey. And there are elaborate spins that must be put on the facts and truth in order to suggest that a Republican governors like Brian Kip, you're Georgia rod to Santa's in Florida and Doug Ducey Arizona and others have performed worse than these democratic states. It it's it. Frankly it's a little bit appalling in sad. To See so much of the spin out there premised on that. Now, I did not want to spend a whole lot of time on that. But there there is a housekeeping a not really a housekeeping item. It's just one issue that I think you to know about. I'm not nor have I ever really been a strong advocate of the flu shot because I am one of the people who always get sick after I get the flu shot. And, every doctor and every healthier expert will tell you that no one gets the flu from the flu shot. I can tell you that beyond a shadow of a doubt. Every year I have ever gotten the flu shot going back to high school I have had a reaction from the flu shot. And it is not in my head and you cannot tell me it's in my head i. get sick I get a sore throat a nel muscle ache is is A.

Put my own. Oh name into i i had somebody text me yesterday. Who said they put their own name and do the into the ring over. Who's gonna fill johnny isaacs and see. I don't think it's going to be any of those people. Here's what i know about brian kelp. He needs to find someone who if there is a runoff can sustain himself gulf through a fundraising operation from november to january why because if there if there is a run off the run off goes until january of of twenty twenty one likewise that person will then immediately get on the ballot again in twenty twenty two so the governor there needs to find someone who can withstand the democratic wave of twenty twenty and then also go up in two thousand twenty two stanford isaacs and seat on the ballot with brian kemp without being a drag on brian kip and there are a lot of people floated a lot of names out there. I'm like this. Is this person. Here's the other thing. I know about him and again. I hadn't talked to these office. I don't want to talk to his office. I don't want to bother them. They're putting things. There's a hurricane there. There's there's all sorts of stuff. If we brian kemp doesn't need to be bothered about the stuff. He didn't have to make a pick until january but if you look at the governor's picks he makes some very diverse divers picks he does make very diverse interesting picks and i think the governor would like to find someone who will have a base of operations. It's to be able to raise money..

"See if you can overwhelm my server. I'm very proud of the site that the designers did an excellent job. So there will be some Republicans and some conservatives. Who think that Bryan kept needs to fight like Donald Trump needs to fight fight fight be in their face all the time the nonstop campaign, and he is signaling that he's going to be more the vein of previous governor. She will have something unique. He will be the first lifelong Republican to take office since reconstruction governors deal in Purdue both Republicans are actually conservative Democrats who became Republicans will be lifelong Republican taking office. It just an interesting thing that sets him apart. What I think is is really notable here is how some of these freshmen Democrats there were a democratic leaders were in the inaugural today were already complaining about him. They were the state house this morning and state Senate complaining about some of their new freshman colleagues who have come in as voices of Danz, and they wanna fight fight fight fight fight. They think they can change the party and change the environment. The culture under the gold dome. They want to be much more combative than Democrats in the past. They don't want to go along to get along. If anything they they're inspired by Stacey Abrams campaign to wanna be further to the left and fight harder. And I don't know that that's going to work for them in for the Republicans and conservatives who were saying Brian Kip needs to be Donald Trump needs to fight fight fight fight fight fight fight and everything I actually think him showing himself to be his own man showing himself to be conciliatory showed himself to reach across the aisle showing himself to be able to find common ground where common ground can be found. I mean, he he largely knowledge there will be issues on which they will disagree. There will be big fights education will probably be one of them. But he hopes they can unite around paying teachers and fully funding K through twelve although they have other issues. He also wants to focus on building small businesses in the state and cutting taxes, which the Democrats won't go along with. But, but we're there's common ground find common ground, and these incoming freshmen Democrats are signaling very strongly that they want to fight about everything. They wanna fight the Democrats. They wanna fight the Republicans. They want to fight the governor. They wanna fight anyone. Again, some of them would not STAN would not applaud would would not engage in anything conciliatory Doreen. Brian Gibbs speech Kemp's, one of the things he started with which gave a list of Georgians who move the state forward, and he started with Martin Luther King junior. And again, some of those freshman Democrats didn't clap for that. He then went for Martin Luther King junior to Clarence Thomas. Yes. In fact, almost every single one he mentioned in his list, with the exception of Gregg Allman and a couple of others were were black. Try to be very very inclusive there, the the judge from tripling county probate judge who swore him in was black the preacher who gave the benediction was as well. He tried to make it multiracial both the ethnic tried to relate to people as Georgians. He noted that we seem to be very divided white black rural urban rich poor Republican democrat conservative liberal, but they're so much that unites us and he wants to focus on what unites us I thought he did a very good job on that. I think his message was reassuring to the Senate and House Democratic leaders, even if it was not reassuring to the freshman Democrats who wanna fight I h y'all it was so funny hearing the grumbling from the state house and Senate Democratic leadership over these incoming freshmen Democrats, they got a real problem. Some of these suburban Democrats have misread why they got elected they elected largely because of Donald Trump and people's dislike of Trump, and they want to behave like Donald Trump, so many of the people in the suburbs. Who? Didn't vote for Bryan presumed. He was going to govern like Donald Trump. He was going to be like Donald Trump, and they were going to be as emotionally exhausted from Georgia's governor as they are for the president. And today, he showed them he's going to be his own, man. He's not going to be the second coming of Donald Trump, and these democratic activists turn legislators want to be the democratic version of Donald Trump. I suspect they're going to be burning out, the suburbs way sooner than Brian burns out, the suburbs..

"What Brian coop would like to do is be able to find a funding mechanism whereby he can give teachers a pay raise? It was his signature issue on the campaign trail in Stacey. Gms repeatedly mocked him on the campaign trail. Instead, there was no way he was going to be able to pull this off. Brian Kim wants to pull this off. Brian Kip wants to give teachers pay raise in the state of Georgia. He remembers Roy Barnes. He remembers the problems. He had it is reelection. We Sonny Perdue wasn't just the flag. They're huge teacher issues with Roy Barnes. Mark Taylor was scuttled because teachers really didn't support him against Sonny. Perdue Nathan did deal a lot of support from teachers Brian Kemp once that teachers supported the state of Georgia and the best way to get teachers supporters in the pocket book by trying to find way to give them a pay raise. And frankly, there are a lot of Democrats in the state of Georgia that are gonna side with him. So the Democratic Party in Georgia can do the state attacks on Bryan Kip, but he's going to get a huge bipartisan win if he can figure out where to find the money to give teachers this payrise what I think we're going to see Democrats do in the state if he gives us pay raise is they're going to try to make it a bigger pay raise in. Essentially, try to dollar for dollar outmatch, Brian Kip to the point where they're going to have to wind up raising taxes if they actually wanna fund the teachers with what they're offering. I think we're going to find a Brian compromise here, and it's going to prove a lot of Democrats wrong that he isn't willing to work cross the aisle, they're convinced. He is willing to work across the aisle, you give teachers pay raise like he wants. It's going to be a huge win for Brian Kemp in really really really set the stage for his reelection early in his administration. It's twenty six to the hour.

"Much. So. The Republicans won with fifty one percent of the vote all things being equal democratic numbers. Went up in suburban areas. Again, there is definitely a backlash against the Republicans in the suburbs in Georgia, and that's going to harm the GOP long-term if they can't figure out a way around it. And I have looked at the data y'all. I have looked at it. And listen there are so many people who are pushing the air to that. Oh my goodness. All these people they become Democrats because Donald Trump. I don't I don't think that's the case. The reason I don't think that's the case is that there is not a sudden shift on the issue of gun control. There's a sudden shift issue of taxes. There's a sudden shift on the issue school choice. There's a sudden shift on any of these issues not sudden shift on the abortion issue. The only thing that there's a sudden shift on a dislike of the president. And a dislike of anyone who. Wraps himself up at the president. And you Republicans in Georgia are in a catch twenty two situation. I don't think Brian Kip had he not run the campaign. He did in rural Georgia and runs a Trump like figure, I don't know that he would be the nominee. That's not to say he needed the president's endorsement if you look at the early voting in the runoff, Brian get one the early vote pretty handily. I think Branka would've won without the president's endorsement, but his early ads did hurt him in the suburbs. I I mean, I I can I'd have to take off my shoes to be able to count the number of people. I know who profoundly disliked his ads that they're not Republicans. See you, and I are surrounded all the time with Republicans. Good conservatives in they were okay with the ads where they understood he's got a lock down the base. But you got these general only voters who they're not Republicans. They tend to vote Republican. They went with Stacey Abrams because they've got oh, gosh, we got one of those people will they? Didn't but they presume they didn't take the time to get to know him for himself. The good thing for Brian get moving forward is that he's got now four years to define himself as his own man in not to be in the shadow of Donald Trump. And I think kill use that disadvantage. He's very savvy politician and a good guy when you get to know Brian gift, you like brand gap. But the GOP is a whole does have the issue and it affects even into the run offs getting Republicans to turn out. They're going to have to pay attention to this issue. The president continues to hurt them in suburbs. And Republicans do not win elections were generally nationwide without the suburbs. I say that way because the next big election the presidential election in twenty twenty and the president of the United States is going to have to win back, the suburbs. He won in two thousand sixteen but then he was running against Hillary Clinton who people despised. So now he's going to have to make them despise. Whoever is her successor in the Democratic Party as much if not more than her the Democrats tend to ignore. And this is something that the White House is paying attention to if the election were held today. Donald Trump would still win because people hate Hillary Clinton that much. Yes. If the election were held today Donald Trump would win because people don't like Hillary Clinton. He's not going to have Hillary Clinton at twenty twenty though. So he's going to have to make people loathe whoever it is the Democrats put up and he'll have some runway to do. It, thankfully, because the Democrats are going to have two billion candidates running. News analysis..

"Great. So Stacey Abrams who is the democrat that lost the governor's race in Georgia. She didn't concede, but she did admit you lost just kind of weird. But now that she's you know, sort of pseudo conceited she she is making it as if Brian Kip stole the election from her in an interview on Monday with Chris Hayes Abrahams was asked to elaborate on her decision. Not to concede the race in favor of pursuing voter reform, litigation as she spoke about how she considered her various legal options Abrahams decried, the erosion of democracy in Georgia. See it can't erode when it doesn't exist. There is no democracy in Georgia. But thank you. Stacey would be really nice. If people running for office could understand democracy or should have been a great governor. Wouldn't she? So she blames camp the Georgia secretary of state for several several issues that came up that she believes compromise the voting process, she says, it was not a free and fair election. We had thousands of Georgians who were purged from the roles wrongly which she has. She has no evidence of that. What do you mean, they were purged wrongly first of all they removed dead people from the rolls. It was not fair to thousands of were forced to wait in long lines. Because there were at the polling place. That's that we're under resource or worse. They had no polling places to go to because more than three hundred had been closed. It was not did Brian camp close them. It was not fair to thousands who had been put on hold with their registrations. And it was not fair to those who filled out absentee ballots, and depending on the country. You sent it to the county you sent it to it was either counted or not counted, assuming you received it in time Brian Kemp oversaw for eight years, the systemic dismantling of our democracy, again, it's not a democracy, pumpkin. And that meant there could be no free and fair election in Georgia this year. Interesting and sold. Let's look at what happened. What really happened in Georgia one and a half million registration voter registrations were purged by brand Kip. This is the argument against Kemp. Here. Fifty three thousand registrations are on hold four and a half hour lines two hundred fourteen polling places closed. Democrats falsely accused of cybercrimes and the candidate was overseeing his own election. So those are all the things that they're claiming. But what really happened is Brian Kemp responsible for disenfranchising one and a half million people. Well, no in his role as secretary of state. He applied state laws. State laws that in fact, don't actually disenfranchise any eligible voter many of the one and a half million voters purge were removed from the voter registration list because they had moved out of Georgia or they died. Many others were removed under the state's so-called use it or lose it law. Now that was passed by democrat legislature and signed by democrat governor under it voters who have no contact with the electoral system for three years are mailed.

"Of semi like Brenda Snipes and her shenanigans, and that should be the first order of business for governor governor, San really look at who is running these counties. Now, what's interesting about this is not actually what Kellyanne Conway said owning the win and she has every right to after the media has been week saying that if to Santa's lost it was gonna be Donald Trump's fault because he intervened in a race. That was winnable. Is that much of the media today is now ready to wait for this? Oh, really he can't play this Donald Trump kit claim this, you know, the president could also claim Georgia to a degree. Now. The early voting in the primary in Georgia suggests that Brian Kip was going to be Casey cable, the Georgia Lieutenant governor anyway, but the spike in his polling after the president endorsed him three days before early voting for three days before the election in July for the Republican runoff in Georgia was overwhelming. Brian. Kemp won every single county in the state of Georgia except for two in the Republican primary had he lost the Democrats and the media would have made it about Donald Trump. They been stunningly silent on Donald Trump and Georgia just as they're now pushing back on Kellyanne Conway trying to claim this is a win for the president. And yet it is a win for the president. The media doesn't want to give him credit on that. Goes full circle to the last hour where the media is willing to give the Democrats a pass on unbelievable and non belief and believing falsehoods believing fake news, and then run all these stories on how Republicans believe fake news. There is a partisan agenda at work in the media as we head into twenty twenty. It's only going to amp up. That's why I am fascinated by this fight between CNN and the president. Jim Acosta, the CNN White House reporter has had all of his privileges of the White House restored. The White House is moving to now change the rules on the press of the White House say that if there's a presidential press conference at a reporter asked more than one question at a time that the reporter can lose their credentials. So it cost us now on notice, but this is a fight that helped the president as much as it helps CNN the president pushing back on CNN pushing back on a Kosta who by the way. I I have plenty of friends of mine who worked at CNN. I was there for three years. There are a lot of them who do think that Jim Acosta has a tendency to grandstand and overshadow the work of his colleagues. As the president he benefits from these fights with the media. And I suspect we're going to read them up, and he's going to have ample evidence and ammunition from the media to prove they are out to get him and out to get the Republicans and denied them credit for good things and laid blame on them for bad things throughout twenty nineteen into twenty twenty as we head into a presidential race.

"And we believe our chance for a stronger Georgia is just within reach. With just over sixty thousand votes, separating Stacey Abrams, and Brian Kemp. Abrahams insists the race is way too close to concede. Kemp on the other hand has taken a victory lap and resigned. As Georgia's secretary of state, claiming the total twenty thousand provisional ballots to be counted in the governor's race are not enough to trigger a runoff, but Abrahams who has spent much of her career combatting, Brian Kemp's voter suppression efforts says there are thousands of additional absentee and other ballots left, and she is going to stay in the race until every single vote is counted joining me now is mayor Teresa Tomlinson of Columbus, Georgia Corinne, jump of move on dot org. And Jason Johnson of the route. I'm gonna go to Theresa I and just noting for the audience. It's like a two second delay. Just just for why? So Theresa just what do you make of this argument by Brian camp that there are not enough votes? Still out there for Abrahams to be still in in the hunt. Well, she needs just over twenty thousand votes to have a recount, which would be very helpful actually. So we could know what exactly the vote count was on Tuesday. And she's about twenty thousand twenty five thousand votes to force runoff and Kemp has been saying all along that there's only about twenty two thousand votes out there, of course, a lot of folks doubted that he actually knew and it turns out just from freedom of information act request open records request. We call them in Georgia that the Abrahams campaign has found a little over thirty thousand ballot sitter out there. So we suspect there are an excess of thirty thousand ballots out there to be counted. But the most important thing is joy, we just had record turn out on Tuesday. Four million people voted for governor in the state of Georgia. That's the largest midterm election turnout. We've ever had and one of the reasons people turned out because we swore to them that their voices mattered that we were going to count their votes. And so we have that obliga- shit and this is far from over. It will not be certified thanks to the federal courts until Tuesday at the earliest. Yeah. And just stay with you for a moment. Mayor Thomas in what happened. Stacey Abrams was well ahead in the polls consistently throughout. How did we get here? I suspect I know the answer. And I suspect it's going to be unnerving tragic. But what do you think happened to reverse? What had been a pretty consistent polling lead for Stacey Abrams. Well, the polls were actually fairly tied Stacy had pulled ahead a bit. There were really positive indicators in that early voting that it looked like. In fact, she was going to pull ahead on election day. The African American vote was off the charts. We were seen urban vote turnout and where she needed it outside of the Atlanta area. We were seeing very large turnout as well. And then of course, the disappointment of election day those initial returns now, so there's several things that happen one Abrams campaign had a huge absentee ballot effort. So a lot of her ballots are actually in those absentee ballots that were set aside because of the exact match the signature requirements. Of course, we had a federal court and cyst that those ballots counted, and those that there were any questions about be counted as provisional ballots the courts took care of some of that. But there has been broad scale questions of voter suppression is certainly a ton of concern out. They are not enough voting machines, predominantly democratic counties. Just a lot of concern. And this is something that's really plagued. The Brian Kip tenure as secretary of state. And so you can imagine why people were particularly offended on Wednesday. When he went into the governor's office declared himself, the Victor and then chose to resign for political optics. I might add the woman that was put appointed by the governor to be the acting secretary of State, Robin, Creighton is a Yale Law graduate and African American woman..

"That's not going to be told because it's being overshadowed by Abrahams. Not yet conceding is that Brian Kemp. One thirty eight to thirty nine percent of the Latino vote in Georgia Hispanic voters in Georgia turned out and a good portion of them almost. Forty percent went for Brian Kip. If the Republicans can figure out a way to build an in a coalition with Hispanic voters of the state, Democrats will not be taking back Georgia anytime soon, but Republicans have to put some thought into how to do that. And it's very clear the Republicans can take a firm stance on illegal immigration and still get a significant chunk of Hispanic voters. And that story is not going to be told because it doesn't fit the media narrative, and also all this other stuff is over shadowing it, but the issue here is that in the suburbs. I Karen Handel rob Woodall, they ran into this wave of voters who aren't per se hardcore Republican voters, but they tend to vote Republican and they did not this time. And it appears that they're turned off by the they're not necessarily turned off by the GOP is, but they're turned off by the president. And they're turned off by those who ally themselves with the president at the same time, Brian Kip by allied himself with the president as much as he did had huge turnout in South Georgia and that cushioned his victory too. To the extent that Stacey Abrams can't overcome it. He's going to need to spend the next four years as governor establishing himself as his own man outside the shadow of the president in order to win back those votes in the north metro, Atlanta suburbs. But Brian Kemp is going to be governor of Georgia. There's not going to be a run off. If you give Stacey Abrams one hundred percent of all the outstanding ballots. There's no way she can get Brank. Yep. Under fifty percent for a runoff, but she doesn't want to concede this as part of a democratic strategy. I wanna talk about that strategy when we come back..

"Loosened the brake lights around coming exit forty three year. Thank you. So I'm voting for Branka. Yes. I voted for the Republican in. Yes, I disagree with Stacey Abrams on her policies and things that she would be harmful to the economy into school choice and life issues and second amendment issues. I'm voting for him on the issues, but there's another reason here as well. I know in like Branka personally at a personal level. I've always liked Brian Kemp when I was on city council in Macon Georgia within he got elected. He reached out immediately to start helping me conclude an issue fighting human trafficking in the mid state that Karen Handel had worked on until she left that office, and we were able to get some policies in place to really crack down on human trafficking issues in middle Georgia, and I have always. Appreciated his willingness to immediately reach out hands all before I had a radio show on WSB just reached out cared about the issue. I will tell you that one of the things that I like about Brian Kemp significantly is that he should not be the nominee. The nominee was not intended to be Brian Kemp. We have in the state party of the Republican party in Georgia had this heir-apparent attitude for awhile and the chamber of commerce and everybody lined up against the candidate lines up for the candidate and the candidates going to be good for big business, but not necessarily for small business and Kip comes from a world of small business, and he fought back and he got the nomination, and he is his own man. And he is the will be the first Republican first of all he'll be if he's governor the first Republican governor of Georgia. No offense intended to Sonny Perdue Nathan deal. But they were both Democrats who became Republican brand Kip has been a Republican. He was elected as a Republican in a race in the state Senate where people didn't think he could get elected and he did in Athens. He's a good good individual. He is a good, man. I like him. He is he's I know tons of politicians, and he's one of the more ordinary normal people that don't mean that pejoratively had just like him. But the fact that he's not beholden to the usual interests is something that I like in Georgia, you tend to get a chamber of commerce Republican who says great things to the conservative base. And then does it deliver on those promises? Once they get elected. They pretend they never made them. And I'm kind of tired of having those sorts of Republicans in power who actually a really good for big business, but not good for small business. One of the headwinds that Brian gives running into running for governor is that we have had a state policy in place. It seems by Republicans to attract as many fortune five hundred companies in their employees as possible to come here. And people ask me all the time. We had a caller call in several weeks. And say way in Texas when people move to Texas they start voting Texans. Why is it in Georgia? They they keep voting the liberals they are. We'll because when people move to Texas by large they are voluntarily choosing to move to Texas when these liberals moved to Georgia, they're moving with their fortune five hundred companies because they don't want to try to find a new job in the left wing hellhole, they left they're coming to Georgia, but they're bringing their values because they don't equate their values with causing their former state to be the collapse kleptocracy that it is like New Yorker, Illinois. And the policies of the George Republicans over the past number of years has been to attract these fortune five hundred companies and now casino some of them want at the expense of small businesses, and and voters in Georgia and people who bring in people who don't have our values and you're seeing this play out now in this election. And I think it will be a wakeup call. If Brian Kip is elected, and I think he will be that Republicans in Georgia have to think differently instead of trying to lure fortune five hundred companies to come to the state and grow economically. How about the state of Georgia find ways to make existing Georgia businesses more economically competitive with other companies? So that our our fortune five thousand company can take over and crush a fortune one hundred company through some sweat, equity and hard work by getting the government out of the way. And I appreciate his entrepreneurial skill set in bringing that to the office. So that's why I'm voting for Brian Kip. I think Stacey Abrams would be terrible for business. And private education and school reform and the second amendment and all those things, but I want to be very very very clear with all of you. I do not believe she's a bad person. And I do not believe she's the enemy. We agree. We disagree on politics. And that's it. And I see no reason to push some of these attacks. I've been encouraged to push that are personally against her. We just happen to disagree on politics. All of us could use to stop looking at the other side is the enemy, and maybe that should tell us politics become too important in our lives that being said Schap tomorrow, go.

"What is that? Unfortunately there. Alarm here. Fire alarm went off. Let's get another job. Just a brief word on this. And listen were despair me your phone calls. Y'all the libertarian party in Georgia has long served as the spoiler for the Democrats. They were given ballot access even though the green party for a number of years in George actually fueled. It's stronger candidates than the libertarians the Democrats in the Georgia legislature structure the law in order to be able to give ballot access to libertarians. As a way to keep Republicans down in Georgia. And for a while there. It actually worked you'll recall that Saxby Chambliss had to go into a Senate runoff because of the libertarian candidate serving as the spoiler. But over time the libertarian party in Georgia has become more and more of a joke. Mr. Mets last night in his entire campaign on him is a joke. I the libertarians in Georgia could actually field some real public policy and help shape public policy toward smaller government in the state, if they engaged more they've been given the gift by the Democrats have ballot access in the tin to not use that gift wisely in Georgia or elsewhere. There are very few statewide viable libertarian candidates in here in Georgia last night for anyone who watched the debate. And I don't believe it was a heavily watched debate. I don't know that it will change many people's minds if anybody's minds if anything though it probably helped Brian given the NBC news polling showing that it the libertarians take into account this could push it into a runoff, if anything it might have helped Brian Kip ensure that he's not going to have a runoff just because the libertarian candidate didn't come across well in the debate at all. If hip is your only major issue. Well, that's not really the issue. I think most Georgians care about it is a very fringe issue by and large the libertarians could do so much more in the state if they would just focus, but they don't seem to want to maybe it's because of him cousin.

"Glasgow by the way, you should have. We had a caller who called in and said, maybe the illegals can go vote in Glasgow county, and they'll be made legal actually, you know, in this lawsuit against Brian Kip over the voters, you need to know that in the lawsuit. The Democrats are asking a federal judge to allow provisional ballots of people who are not American citizens to count. I'm not making that up. The Democrats have filed a lawsuit over this over these people who they claim Rabin denied the right to vote in their not and one of the things that are saying is that people who are listed as a provisional ballots are flagged as being cast by non American citizens that those provisional ballots should be allowed to be cast. Anyway, a provisional ballot is when you show up at a polling location. He say vote here. And they said, well, you're not on the record you cast a provisional ballot. They verify that you then you're allowed to vote. What this is what the democratic wants to say is that if these people are listed as be non-citizens that their votes should still be allowed to be cast. That's what the Democrats are doing. I'm not making that up. I also I have tracked down the video of the made up county. I will get that up at the resurgent dot com during the commercial break. So you can see for yourself. You've heard it. You'll be able to see it for yourself Glasgow county. This is not actually a real place. It's where all the fictitional voters come from though..

You're the woman Nell you're the woman was CCA rooms this is one of the things they're going to do But, a lot of, the, national news EMMY for example just. Just take the the general summation of the Republican nomination The general summation of the Republican nomination is that. Donald Trump endorsed Brian Kemp and but for, Donald Trump's, endorsement Casey cable would've won and it's now Donald Trump's party Except the early voting we now know Brian Kip, one at fifty seven point eight percent of the vote Brian Kip one nearly vote before the president endorsed him so it's real hard to say, that Brank was only pushed over the edge because the. President when he won before the president got involved but that's one of the, things that they will do they will try to claim that Brian Kip wouldn't. Have gotten to he, got but for the president and the brand gives happy to have. The president sport and by the way guess, what Donald Trump won Georgia into sixteen But they're going to attack him for that support they are. Convinced that Donald Trump, is going to hurt Republicans even in Georgia And I don't think the polling bears out by the way But the other thing they're gonna. Do is they're going to attack him on the Russian hacking this was. The very first story that was run on left wing, sites, last night is that the. Russians hacked the election servers Georgia, and Brian kept covered up there's no evidence. Of that none but they're? Going to run this story nationally will it sink, in locally I don't know that it actually is going to I. Really don't know that it's going to but they're going, to, try then there's going to. Be the story that you're already, seeing Atlanta media run this story Brian Kip. Suppressed voters Brian Kim through? People of roles Brian stop Stacey Abrams registering people Actually Brian Kemp was just. Making sure the law was followed in cleaning up voter rolls the same people who are worried about the, Russians hacking or the people who think that we need. Messed up voter rolls apparently I mean that you've got this non sequitur argument, going on they're concerned that. The Russians could hack into our election voter database in steal the elections of our Riggott, and yet they don't, want, the, voter rolls cleaned up, that's their, attack on Bryan goop Now what are the textile Stacey Abrams going to be well she wants to, blow up so now now I'm not kidding she she. Wants to to level Stone Mountain She is strongly for abortion rights and state subsidy of abortion rights she is strongly for. Gun control she wants to raise taxes. Mean the issue here is going to be issue too liberal, for Georgia is, not going to be. Whether the attacks on Kip we're going to, be on. Competence, issues the tax on Abrahams are going to be on, liberalism issues public policy issues. And here's the thing Casey k. goal. Through all of those attacks Brian Kemp And Kip still won the Republican nomination now you, can say well. Now you're going to. Deal with Democrats and independents and that is, very true But Democrats independents have been hearing these. Decks they've been seen him on TV as. Well And you're gonna find the. Polling close in the worst case scenario probably They're not gonna have a huge impact, on Kip and. Gifts going to be able to come out and say these role detects we've already had all these extra, tax He's also going to run a more aggressive campaign largely because he has been vetted and tested me say what you will about the Abrahams Evans primary but Abrams was not given a run for. Her money largely because Stacey Evans did. Not have the money to fund a massive campaign against Stacey Abrams and go after her with all of the, the dirty laundry. She's got the financial issues and whatnot Brian keeps going to have that money now the left is going to pour massive amounts of money into Georgia for Stacey Abrams but at some point you reach a saturation point and there's only so much. You can spend to shake things up Ultimately what is, going to come down to is a simple calculus when voters get to the polls in November One candidate has an RX to his name The. Other has a d. next to her name In georgia The are still gives you an advantage that the national media, doesn't believe and we'll see Brian Kip be Georgia's next governor Atlanta's evening news with Eric Erickson breaking local news is accurate and dependable five day forecast and triple team traffic every six minutes w Yes Doug Turnbull.

"To lose the runoff now on Tuesday but, there are two other runoff for Lieutenant governor secretary of state and Brian Kemp now the front runner the the, secretary of state given the snafus, the Lieutenant governor's race that neither of them have, endorsed anyone in the secretary of state's race they they've wanted to stay out of it so I well I will tell you I am voting Brian Kemp for governor and. I'm voting David Belle isle for secretary of state I, don't in it's nothing against bread Ravensburger who's the, other guy in the sector pictures. I, just don't know who I don't know him I know David Bill somewhat he's a very nice guy he's the mayor of Alfa Reta highly regarded up there. So, in candidate for David Shaffer for Lieutenant. Governor I think. We're voting the same all right there we go Yeah absolutely yeah. I I am voting for Branka, up, for governor in. Georgia let's go back to the. Phones David. Your next welcome David Oh. Yeah good. Morning Question was I heard on the radio TV front page of. The Gainesville time Trump is Endorsed center on campus Keagan advertisement on TV President. Trump, is endorsed him yes this is actually one of the reasons a someone close to the White House tells the president decided to. Publicly endorsed. Brian Kemp during this this is the in two thousand sixteen the. Lieutenant governor, in Georgia Casey giggles. No running for governor everyone assumed. He would get it he supported. Jeb Bush for president And his opponent the secretary. State Brian Kemp didn't. Support, anyone he didn't think he should take a position he. Helped all the candidates who came through the state he was. Secretary. Of state he oversaw the election so he, didn't want to endorse a presidential candidate anyone who came, into he took Donald Trump around he took John casick around he took Ted Cruz around he. Took Jeb, Bush he he did that. With all the candidates who came through and so now Casey Kagan Lieutenant governor has been attacking Brian Yup for having shown John casick around the state even though he did it for everyone including Donald Trump Casey Kasem also running this ad and essentially it very strongly suggests that President Trump, endorsed him and again he was. A Bush supporter so the president I am told by people close to the White House was told that this guy down. In, Georgia who's running for governor and supported Jeb Bush against you is now trying to suggest that you're supporting him and he'll have. Your back. And he's running against the other guy Brian Kip who the president. Does remember, kindly took him around. The state and also that Brian. Kemp is the guy who organized The SEC primary that is the, primary the southern states that Donald Trump believes caused him, to get the Republican nomination so there was a natural for the president to endorse Brian Yep. He is, actually sending the vice president. Down to Macon Georgia in the mid state tomorrow to campaign with Brian Yup and all of the polling now has Brian Kip ahead it was a very bad mistake for the cable campaign to imply that he was the Trump used of the Trump candidates because that really encouraged the president, come out for the other guy.

"And, that jams you back to the south blueberry Thank you You know I did, not, listen I it is not, my style particularly in phone interviews where Ooh I mean every time. I've interviewed Casey when he's on the phone I it it's hard to get him to stop he goes off on, a policy t engine and we could have spent an, hour talking about digging, tunnels under Atlanta and I would have loved that conversation by the way if Keiko gets elected I want him back in and we may do two hours on, digging, tunnels, under land because I'm fascinated, by the idea. And I think we really ought to, yes I I'm in the camp of, let's dig tunnels I'm right there with him on this but nonetheless when he gets talking on, some of these issues is hard to stop him. If he's not in the. Room with me and I don't like. To do contentious interviews anyway it's not really my style I'd rather let someone expressed. Themselves in you can linger on what they say and don't say and how they say things but I did feel the need, to push him, on the tip interview and he. Immediately pivoted to blaming Brian Kip for it which isn't true had nothing, to do, with it I. Know, that, we've had tip-ins on here, to talk about it in I, just don't believe that QE goal gave a straight answer on the delta issue with me and the reason I say that is because when I asked him about, it, in, point blank asked does this, mean when you. Get elected that delta is not going, to do this he immediately pivoted to, blame and I had to bring you back to it and he said no they're not gonna, get it but that's part of the damage of. The tip is audio and. Why I think the trustees shoe is. Hurting Caygill here we have a governor right now governor deal who campaigned on signing. The religious freedom restoration act Riffa it does not it is not a law that would say that a Baker could say no, gays allowed that, that's that's not what this law. Does what refer does is it fixes a quirk of the supreme court Where the supreme court and it was actually incidence glee who, did it and he only. Did it because of case precedent he had tremendous support for precedent the supreme court had long. Ago decided that the free exercise clause of the first amendment was not given the same standing as, the rest of the first amendment so there are scrutiny levels from the spring where? There's a rational basis standard that government can do whatever it wants if there's a rational basis, there's, an intermediate scrutiny and there's, a strict scrutiny standard in the strict scrutiny standard is virtually impossible for. The government overcome and what the courts have. Done in the past is they've said that if government wants to do something that violates the first amendment. The course will. Give that strict scrutiny that essentially they must find any other way possible, to do what they. Wanna do and if there is no. Physically feasible possible way to do it then maybe they'll consider it And the supreme court said that doesn't, apply to the very first sentence of the first, amendment the free exercise clause and so all refer, does say no strict scrutiny goes there as well. So that's why little sisters of. The poor hobby lobby Coniston go wagon and whatnot could win their case against the federal government in the abortion mandate because there were other ways to carry out. The abortion mandate without infringing on people's free exercise of their religion in their daily lives that's all refer does is. It says every part of, the first amendment has to have the same strict scrutiny standard by the federal courts and it doesn't apply to the the person wants to discriminate against the gay person because when it comes to businesses like that that's a contract right it's not a first, amendment right according to existing precedent this is all about the government compelling you to do things for example if the city. Of Athens or Atlanta says you have to have transgender bathrooms will, then that's the government imposing On you and there would be a strict scrutiny standard there and it protects you from that in governor deal all the years he's been. Governor has said he would sign refer and they have passed refer repeatedly and behind the scenes he and leaders of the Republican party in, the legislature have blocked again and again and again the passage of refer and when it really mattered when the grassroots were really, worked up about, it?.
