"He got a gift on last week or this week, with the Senate now going to the Democrats. So he's going to have Democrats in the Senate. Democrats in the House help push forward that agenda, but I think my role remains the same. Is he doing? What he said he was going to do And if he isn't why not? One more question for you, Charles best before we get the break and after big when asked the question, I ask every Friday for him. Guess what do you know that we don't know? All right, so we are going to have the new president's and certainly the coverage of that is gonna be amazing. And It's gonna be a different you just talked about the difference between the two men. But looking back at previous administrations who have left office, the George H. W. Bush or Bill Clinton or other presidents, the media has tend to have tended to leave them alone. Do you see that as a journalist? You think that would be consistent? When will we see the president's current president, Donald Donald Trump being left alone for the most part, or even does he want that? I'm guessing that Yeah. Are you asking about Will they leave President Trump alone? Yeah, well, they still cover him in the matter that we've typically done in the past with ex presidents or former presidents. They've kind of moved on. And the other thing I think with ex president so they like to sort of leave and go. They themselves want to go away. You know, they want to sort of Disengaged from those four years or eight years that they have been the subject of all everything you know that happens. 24 7 the morning and wake up the morning is that from the moment you go to bed And I don't. I don't know if President Trump is going to be. He hasn't been a traditional president, so I don't think he's going to be a traditional ex president. Yes, one of the best way to say it. I will take a quick break. We'll wrap it up with the big question. What do you know that we don't know. Charles Benson, reporter anchor for TMJ four news. One of our partners here at Radio City.

"With passion and purpose. Let us begin. You and I together. One nation under God unite our love for America United in our love for each other Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden speaking last night from Wilmington, Delaware, the DNC coming to a close joining us Live to recap. Charles Benson of TMG for news, Charles I know you've been to a bunch of these things live in the moment. What was your takeaway from seeing the virtual four days of the DNC? It's not what you want for a convention. You know, I understand the times we live in and what the Democrats thought why they needed to have a virtual convention versus an in person convention. But you know, conventions are really a chance for delegates and party officials. To cheer on your team. You know, it's like going to a path again. You're surrounded by people who all believe in the same team on the on the field. And so you kind of missed that energy and excitement. That happens on the four of those connections with other people from not only within your delegation, but from around the country. And so you get a lot of that energy that comes out of a convention. You take that home with you work hard to go towards the election. Yeah, they had virtual events. They did things on do they heard from great right now used to Story trolls Go ahead yet we're still here. So you know that part was lost. But having said that the Democrats found a way to have a virtual convention. The question now going for and by the way, Republicans are pretty much having a virtual convention as well. The question now going forward. Forward is how do you have a virtual campaign? What does it look like between now and November? And there's a lot of ground game going on to get out the vote, and that's the next step. Right? How do you translate whatever Momenta mu have from this into playing it through September October into early November. Charles, What was it like trying to cover this, You know, connecting with the delegates because they play such apart and what happens and they were spread all over the country. Right. So again, the benefit of these videoconference calls right? I mean, that's how we connected. There was an event last night at a drive in there was a lot of them across the country. Sort of these watch parties that were known to see during political years. People gathering to watch a speech, so there were some of those types of things, but look largely people are going to be engaged in this election. By seeing the campaign commercials. They're going to be getting text messages could be getting phone calls. There's going to be male. There's going to be a lot of engagement with Wisconsin voters on both sides of the aisle. Why is that? Well, I always say, you know, Wisconsin just isn't a battleground state so the tourism department could get the journalists to come here in the fall. It's actually a pretty competitive race, and that's what it's looking like. Right now. Here we are in mid August towards the end of August, Team G Force Charles Spence and live on the first Midwest Bank hotline on W. T. M. J. Much is being made about the fact that Joe Biden gave his acceptance speech last night in Delaware. Not here that we haven't had a visit from a Democratic nominee. Since what 2012. How important is it for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris to have a physical presence actually come to Wisconsin at some point before November. So I asked a couple of Democratic sources the same question and after two or three second pause from each of them once and maybe the other said, I don't know. And the question is really going forward. Yes, Republicans are going to hammer this point that they're not here and we saw that this week. We saw the president here on Monday. We saw the vice president here on Wednesday. So I think everybody knows, especially when you look back to President Obama and when Vice president Um Biden was on the ticket. They were able to close the deal by making a lot of stops here in Wisconsin. This is a different time. It is a pandemic. Democrats are comfortable knowing that they're not having a large events and bringing people together. But go back to Yes, you like to see the candidate. You like to get that engagement. But Jean, there's going to be so much going on in the background to get people to get out and vote and the push to get people to vote by absentee ballot. That's going to be the big story going forward. How does each side get their team to the election Day? Not just on November 3rd but starting in mid September, and that 45 Day race to get people out to vote. Get them ready and get that ballot in there. We'll be keeping Charles Benson on speed between now and November, Charles Thank you so much appreciate the time. You're welcome. 7 27 time Now for news about your money.

"Or if they kept their job right or they could have lost their jobs so they can't be looking. Do you think it seems as if and we know owners may always have an opportunity. You see an opportunity and they'll grab it but do you think we are going to see a reckoning on salaries over the next five years in all sports we very well could the owners could very well claim with complete justification that their revenues are down. Not just for this one year but that there's a ripple effect that it'll take a while before it ever gets back to where it once was and so with less money in the pot there's less money to be spread around. I think that the big stars will still get fabulous salaries but overall payrolls may be down And it's just the market speaking. What do you make a Blake's now that was a I the Blake did you? Did you follow that where he was? Yeah he's he's a guy that will you and I both know he's a. He's about to become a guard. He's about to get a Garrett Cole Contract Right Yup but he's a year away he's a free agent next year right Yeah and I. We all know what he's thinking. Oh I play the short season on this on this. You know I'm still in my you know What they call the first five years. Whatever under under control here. Yeah underpaid what my value would be oh whoops and I get hurt and then there goes my whole future that I thought I had come right always a risk even under normal circumstances but I think he may have talked himself into a corner when he said or at least implied. Look I'm not gonNA come back for just a fifty fifty split of the Revenue. I'M GONNA come back for a pro rated salary Given the health risk as he sees it. I'M NOT GONNA come back unless you pay me what I think. I'm worse. Well if that's the case that there's significant health risk in your mind you shouldn't come back at all The difference between a prorated salary and whatever he would get under a fifty fifty revenue. Split should not be deciding factor. If you're talking about your long range house I think it would have resonated better. If he simply said look no matter what. I'm not coming back this year. Unless and until on absolutely satisfied that the risk is small enough for non existent so that I don't put myself on my loved ones at risk instead. He seemed to be saying. Well there's a price for this. If if the price is right I'll roll the dice but in the prices of right. I'M NOT GONNA pick the dice up I'd love for you to Dabble into college athletics here because one of the things that I think we've noticed about this pandemic overall particularly about the economy. Is this if you were if you were if you were fragile as a take? Jc Penney's you are fragile going into this thing. The pandemic made a broken you right. We're strong going into this thing. You could withstand if you look at the sports world. The Weakest Link of the sports world worst case athletics right. It had the in that it was. Yeah it was just precarious right when when all of your players are basically just about ready to bolt revenue issues before the pandemic good luck Now in making all this work I have a feeling the next ten years are going to be a an apocalypse when it comes to college athletics. But I'm curious what you see common well. There may be a reckoning and for a long time I've said with this hue and cry about the players are a in other people rich but they're not getting a penny what that implies or flatly states is that there is no value in a free college education. A free education room board books tuition the whole thing. It basically says we know this is a sham and this is just some sort of subset. That really has no direct connection academics except in the case of a handful of of scholar athletes. Who will put out there for promotional purposes? If if a college education worth hundreds of thousands of dollars many of the Fellow students on that campus. Their parents work two and three jobs to get them to that place. If that's worth nothing maybe ought to wipe the slate clean and start over. Maybe we ought to force the NBA. Not Force them directly but indirectly force them to have not just the G. League which they have now but the have a full functioning farm system the way baseball and hockey do we. We've seen with football The Alliance of American football was apparently badly conceived and they had money problems but there was an interest in it and the second iteration of the xfl was actually going pretty well until a pandemic hit the point is you could have a minor league football because there's an APP for it from a football obsessed country and in basketball with smaller rosters. You could definitely do it. There's no disgrace when you mentioned Bryce Harper. He didn't go to college why he wanted to play baseball. You Know Mickey Mantle Willie. Mays didn't go to college Wayne. Gretzky didn't go to college. They went to the minor leagues. Because that's what they should have done. There would be no disgrace in that. And then what you would house if and I'm not going onto long chuck but what you have is if the university presidents had the gumption to say look nobody gets into this universal a student not necessarily road scholar but plausibly the a student at this university if it did not have a football or basketball program every university has standard Ohio state. University is not an should not be the same as Vanderbilt's or Stanford which also plays big time sports or duke for that but they all have some minimum baseline standard. If you can't clear that standard then you don't get admitted and no one. Athletic Department is allowed to cut corners. Because I the chancellor and my staff are monitoring all of this and then what you have is that some some of these gifted athletes would go to minor leagues in football and basketball. But you'd still be left with very enjoyable college sports because outside of professional scouts if the score is North Carolina sixty nine and clemson sixty seven. That game is still exciting to the viewer and to the people in the stance. I buy it a basketball. I think we I am wondering about football right. I am wondering about that on the college level and the where. I'm concerned of the reckoning for college. Sports really isn't the revenues sports. It's what's going to happen to the Non Revenue Sports. I mean I already right. I think it was university of Dayton's I already killed Gulf You know and it I have a feeling this is. That's where I think you know because or look at a gw where I went They'll spend money on the basketball program. But they viewed as a marketing tool but if they haven't pick and choose between funding the Engineering Department or the basketball program. I think I know. Gw IS GONNA pick. Because there's not enough. There isn't enough donors. There probably isn't enough donors connected basketball program to make them think. Oh it's financially more viable to do that and that's where I think we could see just a killing fields of college sports just disappearing and the concern I have there is. That was a way for kids to get into to pay for schools that they wouldn't normally be able to afford because they got in on a on a non revenue sports scholarship. Yeah that's very true and no matter how many misgivings we may have. About the worst aspects of Big Time College Sports. It is true that the big football and basketball programs at many of these schools. Are What pays for the LACROSSE team? The crew team the tennis team so there is a benefit. Well how do you? How do you keep yourself busy without sports? What are you doing to like are you? Are you somebody that goes down the rabbit hole of Youtube and we'll watch all these old old games are you that? Are you a reader? How do you feel your sports your sports hall right now? I've been? I've been pulling off the shelves a whole lot of books that I have meant to read and hadn't gotten around to. I've been doing a lot of that. I can fest that I'm on Youtube and it is a rabbit hole because this fascinating stuff. It's not all consequential you live on Youtube. Forget about sports. And it's like hey ten ten episodes of the rifleman that you've never seen. Well sure give me all a Chuck Connors. You got some somebody on Suzanne flirts with Johnny Carson. On the tonight show okay. I'm in I'll I'll watch. I'll watch nine minutes of that but then I also go to the all sports networks. Mlb in the NBA Network and they're showing classic game. So I've been doing a lot of that everybody else just treading water and waiting it out and I don't. I don't know if you know but I'm one of the great technophobes of all time until less than two years ago. I had a flip phone but now in order to get on the air with whomever asked me to be on. I'm skyping. I'm assuming I'm face timing. I'M CISCO webex saying I don't know what the Hell I'm doing but there I am Bob. I barely know what I'm doing. I'm like I used to be like the tech guy or the gadget guy and now I'm the old guy in the office and I'm still I'm the guy doing leaning my head too far into the video going we can see chuck there But Youtube is an amazing rabbit hole credit. Because you go out. You're absolutely right. I'm glad you mentioned the Carson. I've gotten sucked into more old carson. Bits with I Will Buddy Hackett although the shock comic Don rickles. I'll admit it's all truck it right those guys. Can you possibly not click? When you see Rodney Dangerfield. You know his doctor. Chuck Dr Vinnie boombats. What a doctor. What doctor I if I make you do more stand up. You'll probably get in trouble with somebody in our twenty first century culture. So we've been talking about. Hey Bob Costas thanks for doing this because it's all right. Chuck be well hope to see in person..

"Even if Marissa himself is not a hall of Famer and Marissa Course has a better case. He had a better overall career. Larson himself cheerfully knowledged until his dying day. Last year at the age of ninety that were it not for that game. He would be at best a footnote in baseball history. He wants lost more than twenty games on a single season for the old saint. Louis Browns In on that particular day he was perfect with the help of some long foul balls. That just curves foul and a couple of good plays by his defense. He threw a perfect game. I asked him. How often do you think about it? And he said every day of my life. I think about that day usually multiple times a day. I think about it. So how can you begrudge agai that that one shining moment as they say now? That's what I say. It's a hall of fame moment. You step up in that moment but you know anyway. Look all the best thing about baseball. Is these arguments but let me tell you about something. I'm tired of and I love him. Know be an MLB DOT COM and MLB network. But I'm no longer interested in finding out who the top ten all time rightfielder for the Washington. Nationals God bless work but every day they're trying to come up with content and clearly. What the Games. I think that baseball has both they have the economic reasons to start are obvious. I think it's the moral hazard. That is the clear. Hurdle here yeah. The players and management have to come to some sort of financial deal and in these circumstances especially fans. Don't want to hear about it whether it's GonNa be a revenue sharing deal or what the players hope for and what they already agreed to which is prorated depending on how many games are played. They gotta get past that hurdle but in looking at the sixty seven page document that MLB put out last Friday The health and safety protocols they're thorough. They're meticulous they're well-thought-out. They seem to have been vetted by experts. But it's so granular in every detail that involves three thousand people fifteen hundred players and then just about twice that number or that number again getting to three thousand with coaches and Auxiliary Personnel Front Office people. Three thousand people trying to follow each of these protocols of very lengthy list over the space of four months. They're trying to thread a whole lot of needles and I wish them well fingers crossed. I WanNa see baseball as much as anybody else. Even with no fans in the stands. But it's going to be a tight rope. Walk to get from point. Eight appoint Z. WITH STUMPING. Going wrong and it. That's what I was just looking at. I mean on one hand. I think it's clear there. They've got their their mindful of liability mindful of a lot of issues. But it seems like the more protocols put in the more it looks almost impossible. They can pull this off. I think it's almost impossible for everybody involved to memorize what the protocols are. You're supposed to just as one example and there are zillions of examples including they prefer that you'd not shower at the stadium after the game. Let me stop you using Max. I'm a national season tickets. I believe Max. Scherzer HAS TO CHANGE HIS JERSEY. Three times a game in an average June start. The there are there are guys who sweat that much and more so so hop in the car with the breeze and little Christmas tree thing that Yang from the rear view mirror and get home. Of course I believe Chris. Farley showed US and Tommy Boy. You could use it as if you really had to. Yeah Yeah and how about this though? If a runner is on first base until the pitcher is backed up on the mound. The first basements loud supposed to hold him on. He's supposed to socially distanced move away from him then moved back next to him. Just in case there's a pickoff throw. I think this could be a base stealers paradise but who knows well. It's it's look. I think we all want something to happen. I've seen the pictures in nineteen eighteen. Where you saw and I'm sure you've seen it now the footage of during the flu epidemic of of where they did yeah baseball and the catcher and the umpire there's that And so on one hand it would be sort of at least a history of sports trying to keep going. What is your. What is your philosophy of that because I also have a very strong feeling about this because sports is such an important part of our economy now and even though it may seem superficial to your life it is not superficial to the livelihoods of the people that make a blue-collar living on the sports world except most of them under the conditions that have been proposed most of those people the hotdog vendors. The parking people security people at the ballpark. They're not going to go back to work. Only the ball players umpires the coaches. They're the only ones that will go back to work. Of course they'll be have a lot to be somebody that drives the bus somebody to turn on the lights at the stadium Somebody to pick up the towels with a mask and gloves as your does it in the locker rooms but USC ninety plus percent of those who ordinarily would be working at a ballpark on a game. Day Won't under these conditions if they can play safely and if the public is satisfied that they are not taking any kind of unfair advantage that deprives those at the back of the line from getting what they need in terms of medical attention testing whatever the case may be as long as they feel that these already. Privileged people are not jumping the queue in some sense then. I think that most people will welcome sports back as a diversion and even if it looks different with no in the stands and even at the broadcast look different and sound different. Because they're coming from a studio. Maybe not from the ballpark. They'll understand that these unique circumstances and they'll welcome it back not only for the diversion but as one small indication that were inching back toward normal. But there's a lot of hurdles to clear before we can get there. I was curious. You know one of the ideas I had and I think it makes more sense for basketball. Perhaps than it does for baseball. This don't try to bring a season back. Come up with tournaments. Come up with You know with basketball. You could picture how you could create you know sort of tournaments for for four teams. You know a in a conference or something like that. They've talked about a few things that way but you know I saw. They got rid of the world baseball. Classic part of Me Wonders. Do you create a exhibition tournament of players. So that you have because it seems to me going to to four weeks at a time is probably about as good as we can expect until we have treatments virus all those things so it seems like the sports world if you could plan you know golf has like you have see has I don't know. Is there been any talk of that in baseball. Not In baseball. That I'm aware of Maybe if all of this falls through in terms of trying to play half a regular season maybe they would resort to something else. That might be more manageable. I think the NBA has an opportunity. And I'm sure that Adam Silver and company have been thinking about this. They could complete their season. They could just say look. We're going to see the play. Offs based upon where the standings were when the regular season was suspended and they might even say instead of sixteen teams in the playoffs. It'll be eight in total four from each conference the top four teams in each conference. And we'll bring them all together in one place likely Las Vegas where all those hotels are empty and happy to accommodate whoever comes in there so we can quarantine all the players in one place. We can have multiple courts so we can play multiple games on a day or night and we can get the whole thing finished quarterfinals to semifinals. Get the whole thing finished. In the space of a month it'll be manageable in terms of asking the players to accept those conditions It would make sense and you'd have a resolution to the season. You just described a tennis tournament to me but instead of weeks. Yeah where everybody's confined into one area. There's multiple courts. Oh this is center court today. Oh the multiple games at once. I mean you could do baseball that way too if you ended up only in a couple of markets gas correct. Yeah except baseball. Didn't have any season at all. So in order to get to a world series. How would you do it? You have to play some games. In order for teams to qualify even with their proposed expanded playoffs there from ten teams in the playoff field to fourteen teams under this year's Proposed format but even there. They have to play at least a representative number of games to see who qualifies hockey and basketball are in the position of being able to say look. We played a good portion of a regular season. Now we're just GONNA concentrate The playoff teams in one area for a month. Or so and get it over with. You'll have a champion. What did you think of the Bryce Harper proposal? The thrown in some double elimination sort of a it felt like a quasi college world series meets the MLB playoffs. I like the fact that Bryce is really a baseball fan Just as a little paramedical thing here. The first time I crossed paths with him. He's like nineteen years old and I don't expect anybody of that age to recognize me. He goes he doesn't say Mr Kostas. Hey Bob how you doing that tells me that like any unlike many ballplayers of his generation. He's been watching it and following it. The traditional parts of at the over the air parts of it not video game parts of it that he's been following it for for quite a while he thinks about the game he talks about the game. He's very knowledgeable about the games history players who far predate his birth let alone his own career. So I like the fact that he's engaged with the game and he has opinions about it But it seems a little convoluted what he's suggest it was it was. It was somebody who's had a lot of time to think about this purchase. You said you know like me to say that's my son and I have come up with all sorts of convoluted ideas trust me. We're just obsessed with having something to talk about so that Harper thing. Let me ask you a a bigger question about you. Know one of the things and we're just GonNa see and I think baseball players have to be careful not to look like they're worried about salaries too much. When as you point out a lot of baseball fans who are taking pay cuts right now at their own jobs you know this is somebody is you know with..

"But the limitations that we have seen is that Texas used to have what we call temporary voting locations or mobile voting locations. You'd have a location pop up for a day or two you know in in Williamson County which is just north of Austin. Their parts of the city that are pretty urban and parts of the city. That are pretty rural and so in some of those were places. You would really just have a pop-up polling location for one or two days of early voting and they would move over to the next town for the next two days that is what's gone for this November election and that is going to be something pretty crucial that were going to watch to see how it will play out both on college campuses. Of course if students are back on college campuses and in rural communities which were benefiting from these sort of pop up days of early voting that are now gone. What kind of is there? Talk of expanding The early vote window in the fall or not yet. We are pretty much too early at this point to do that. The governor signed a proclamation that extended early voting for July. And that was I think. Pretty unexpected based on the conversations. I've had with local election officials. Were not aware that this is coming necessarily and so now there is sort of a scrambling to get ready for double the resource double the poll workers in the state. Where like another many states? Most of the poll workers are sixty five and older. So I think that's going to be a key question though for November. Do we also take this logic? That increase early voting helps face out voters during a pandemic and apply to November election that in Texas. Obviously the presidential races is on the ballot in that will be a pretty big one. But we're also heading into election where control of the House of Representatives in legislature is is up in the air and could have real implications for the twenty twenty one redistricting cycle so there are a lot of questions about November There's also the Republicans controlled the state for. Many years have wanted to keep things as they are both from a political standpoint and in terms of who turns out and who votes in our elections and so I think some of these questions will be really interesting once we finally get to them for November because it could require some big changes in how we run elections and turns out On a shift gears slightly to talk about leadership political leadership in both of your states and. I want to ask the question this way Charles. Look we're living in a polarizing barn. It seems like you know either either. The governor blue team or the governor of the red president of blue team prisoner. Is there anybody in your state that has been trying to strike a balance that tries to deescalate? Who would you single out of people that have attempted to de Escalate? The polarization of it. You know I guess you would have to say. The governor has been the one who has tried to do that from the standpoint that he is not as politically motivated compared to the Republicans in this state. He's making operation from the likes me if the the really interesting college professor and I say this not as a you know eight you know. Where's a sport coat? He you know he just. He looks like your middle-sized college president. Okay I'll I'll take it one step further and that has some say he's the Mister Rogers. He's a nice guy. Okay yes that's very polite and as a result of that he doesn't go into a meeting you know like some others might say you know. This is how it's going to be done. This is the way we're going to do it and tries to will his way to that while he does have some specific ideas and some specific goals he comes out of education. He was are up director. Our Superintendent of Public Instruction for many many years if he goes to the Democratic convention. This summer it will be his first political convention so really sort of wasn't a political guy until he got regret. Run for governor. Yeah exactly so. He and based on polling people sort of see him as this calming Boyce not this partisan in terms of the politics that are being played now but keep in mind he is still a Democrat and he has been providing solutions that other. Democrats have embraced. So let me. Curious has his demeanor than given off. The impression can be rolled. There's a fine line you walk. They when you'RE MISTER. Nice Guy. Sure and it does look like to some that. Maybe some on the right or just pushing him around that might be the perception by some on the right but when you look at the entire state where they are in terms of what they're comfortable with going forward in this pandemic and how to handle that he has been given high marks and he's been given better marks than President United States so one can look at those numbers and make a judgment that so far as we have seen in other states as well they like what the governor overall is doing in Wisconsin Alexa in Texas. It's it is interesting to me that both the Attorney General in the Lieutenant Governor seemed to be higher profile. More polarizing then the action in the current governor. Yeah I think we you know it's a stay with some pretty boisterous leaders all up and down. I think the ballot generally by without a doubt at least in the lieutenant governor's If you look at the Lieutenant Governor and the profile he has amassed particularly during legislative sessions. He is pretty powerful guy. During those to say the sessions he has a lot of power to almost have volt virtual control of what comes onto the floor of the Senate of what is debated in the Senate is the presiding officer of the Chamber and he has a lot more power. Some would argue during the legislative session than the governor does. And so you the the mediation that might be occurring and other states is not whatsoever happening here in Texas where you have an entirely Republican controlled state government both chambers of the legislature and the political faultlines at that creates are more so against the locals where you have the big cities versus the right. It's Awesome Dallas Houston and San Antonio versus the state. You've got these big blue cities and big and big blue counties that have millions of people in them and they are led by Democrats. And so you see these. Political faultlines emerge there and the tension. That comes with where you have you know. Republican controlled state with democratic controlled cities. Where a large percentage of Texans actually live. Who's is anybody emerged is trying to be a somebody who could try to heal the divide. Try to try to help it. I know that the Kerm Republican Speaker of the State House. There is always seen as somebody. But that's some would argue. That's been out of political necessity but either way I mean who is. Anybody tried to cut through this a little bit. It's that's a tough question to answer. Because they the polarization that you see nationally plays out pretty similarly in Texas and everyone. You know it's easy to see how on the political front people can have run into their corners The previous speaker of the house Was Sort of seen on some fronts to be a little bit more of a mediator particularly on some social issues. But was you know pretty stuck to the party and a lot of ways in the current speaker of the House is sort of a lame duck at this point. And so their their real. There's a if you're looking for a mediator in the fuller ization. There's a real vacuum in Texas right now and chuck when you look in Wisconsin. I mean the Assembly Speaker Robin boss. He was the voice for a lot of people saying it was time to reopen. They felt the governor when he extended the safer at home to May Twenty six after Memorial Day and when people saw the the metrics the numbers. Going down that there. Wasn't this big run on the hospitals. Yes Milwaukee County and certain other areas were hit harder but you go just sort of north west in up into the central part of Wisconsin. They were seeing very. Few cases in some counties didn't have any Cases at least tested positive cases and so there was this big rift developing about. How could we regionally reopen versus? The governor wanted to wait to win over and reopen the entire state at the same time. Even though a lot of businesses were still allowed to operate. We were still having construction. Going on. There was still manufacturing going out. There was still a lot happening but those small businesses those main street businesses. They were feeling the pinch and Robin Robin boss. The speaker felt he was the voice for that and the governor felt he was the voice for everyone in the state saying note. We gotta wait to we all get on the same page all right. We've we've gotten heavy. People are more important now. I I would like to think voting situations are so let's get to the really important stuff. What do you what something new? You're binging and what something you re binging Alexa I to you. Oh Okay so I love the office and kind of come back to it and some dark moments because it's easy and I wound half pay attention to it if I need to be doing other things And I have been watching the.

"Show. The twenty twenty election takes place. Just one hundred sixty seven days and there are still plenty of unknowns about how it's GonNa play out one of the biggest questions. How are people going to vote Wednesday morning? The president tweeted that Nevada and Michigan illegally. Set out absentee ballots for the general election in November. He said it would encourage quote great voter fraud. Scenario and quote. They threatened to withhold federal funding to some states. If they didn't reverse course many states at bracing vote by mail and by the way Michigan they they sent out applications. Not The ballots themselves But with many states have bracing book by L. Including six crucial swing states. We're GONNA talk about the challenges of Malin Voting. Also the show that the states are now opening up in some form or another in some ways. We've been talking about the pandemic through the Lens of hotspots like New York. But at this point folks in the northeast or in the minority when it comes how they experienced the lockdown joining me today to give us a better look at what's happening across the country. Charles Benson reporter anchor from TM. J four in Milwaukee Wisconsin the NBC affiliate Milwaukee and Alexa. A politics and demographics reporter from the Texas Tribune later in the program joined by the only other person in the world that might Miss Baseball as much as myself legendary sports announcer Bob Costas but I Charles Alexa. Welcome to the todd. Cast and Charles. Let me start with you. Since you're in a state with no with no rules I guess well wait. No I have kid. Obviously we've been talking a little bit but I say this I'm not kidding. Basically in the media and political capital of the World New York in Washington were still pretty much locked down. The rest of the country has opened up and I think that that is going to present. Sort A it's just going to be an unusual a disconnect. I think between those that cover and have to figure out this story and those that are living at every day. Tell us what life is like Milwaukee. Right now Charles. So there's a little bit of a disconnect in Wisconsin as well Wisconsin has seventy two counties and seventy one of them have pretty much reopen in. Start Phasing in this idea. Safer at home was going to be the game plan until may twenty six but as many people know there was a challenge of that in the Wisconsin Supreme Court and Safer at home no longer exists after a not so much that they struck down that order but they struck down the power the authority of the person who issued the order. So we have begun this reopening in all parts. Lots of parts of Wisconsin deeper starting to get back to normal except in Milwaukee County and in Milwaukee itself the biggest city in the state of Wisconsin. And so stay at home order still exists so there is a little bit of that disconnect as well as we go into the Memorial Day weekend where people in the walkie. You're gonNA feel like hey. I'd like to go do this. They can't do it in the city of Milwaukee but outs in other parts of the state they will. Alexa paint a picture for where you in Texas so I am based in Austin and we have had never a weird few weeks like most of the world but you know there are two hundred and fifty four counties in Texas and at the beginning of this you started seeing different orders. Come out too early. Out of the big urban counties where the cases started popping up I but as that continued to spread across the state. The governor eventually issued a stay at home order but he has now pulled back and has been moving to reopen things. A lot quicker than some locals would have wanted him to and so. We're kind of in this weird in between where we've started reopenings while our case numbers continue to go up both as a result of increased testing that finally reaching the goals at the state had said a bit also because of target testing of what we now know are hot spots across the State. So WanNa get to the voting issue because you are both in states where this is. This is becoming heated Alexa. Let me start with you. Since the news of the of the day in some ways this week is coming out of your state so walk us through what the federal it's okay. So the the absentee law in Texas said if you were sixty five or older basically had a seniors law. Is that the best way to put about about it. If you're sixty five or older you are automatically entitled to Absentee Voting Excuse Thir- under sixty five you have a disability or illness be out of the county that you're registered in during the election period or be confined in jail and the question was whether fear of getting the virus was a good enough. Excuse to absentee ballot. it sounds like the state says no but the judge said yes. The question is actually whether the risk of getting the virus is enough to qualify someone on judge ability. You know. We're talking about the the lack of immunity like having longs through which you can breathe in these droplets of the virus. The Attorney General's office though has focused on this argument out of fear. That fear in alone is not enough to qualify the arguments we've seen on the other side and the arguments we've seen the judges Agree to is focused on the lack of immunity that voters you don't have an that puts him at risk to get the violence if they lot in building person and the Attorney General's arguing that that that's not enough. Does he have a metric in mind is there? I mean it sounds like is there if you have an underlying condition. You're under the age of sixty five. It's okay is he. Is He willing to see that point? You know he's been pretty strict about wanting to stay to his reading of the law which which he has expressed to say you know if you have or if you already have a sickness if you already had some physical condition that prevents you from going to a polling location or prevents you from going to kitchen without harming your health than you are. Okay anything beyond that does not qualify you for this. Of course the weird thing in all of this is he's been fighting with local officials that when you apply for an absentee ballot in Texas all you have to do is check a box if you're citing disability just box you don't have to say what your disability is or what your illness and so this is where local officials have been left in in a weird position because they are receiving that are checked to civility and they have no way of knowing if the person is checking that on the fact that going to a polling location during the pandemic could harm their health or because they have shape a disability that keeps them from being able to stand in line out in Texas heat in the summer if he is the attorney general saying that local registrars should double check all disability. Check marks. So that's where we are actually waiting Here in or arguments before the Texas Supreme Court because there are multiple legal talent going on and and he is saying that local officials are. You're basically not performing their duties and not rejecting applications that he doesn't believe are valid but local officials don't have either the ability or the authority to police that reasoning and so they've got all these applications that they can actually distinguish between all right. Charles yes explain how -SCONSIN 's Mayland situation is working as you understand it right now and what still unclear about election day Well I think a lot of people as we look to. November are trying to figure out what the landscape will look like Wisconsin in April was one of the few states that actually held in in person election but there was a lot of confusion because it was tied up in battles within the state courts as well as the US Supreme Court. The date was supposed to be April seventh. Lots of people wanted to do the mail in ballots. There seem to be a plan in place to get those ballots out and then it was like there wasn't enough time so there was all of these legal challenges that came out about the mail in balloting and we saw nearly a million. Mayo again ballots for Wisconsin. Really Oregon right with the male in versus the in person but with that came confusion as well with people wondering what is the deadline. When is the time I have to get it in? Which ballots will be counted? And even today as we speak speak there are still some concerns. That absent absentee ballots did not get out in time that some were stuck in the at the post office and so when we're talking about just a few thousand well in battleground Wisconsin. A few thousand votes could mean a big difference in a November election. So there is all this talk about November. And whether or not we should just do a all mail in ballots or at least should ballots be sent out to everyone and therefore they want that opportunity they will have the ballot but that's going to create a huge legal challenge. Okay who's decision is that the governor is your secretary state or is it the legislature had. Who makes that decision about sending out absentee ballot application? I think it goes down to each municipality in terms of yes that's where people go to turn up but right now we have an election commission that is talking about sending out two point. Seven million absentee ballots to get at least prepared for November. And I think there's going to be a lot of people saying wait a minute. We don't even know what November is GonNa look like But they're trying to figure out the governor's way on this legislature is going away on this. It is Wisconsin. We have a democratic governor. We have a Republican legislature. And so there is going to be this battle over whether not absentee ballots will work keep in mind. The Governor and Republicans were pretty much on board for a while there that age seventh should go forward but it was the mayor of Milwaukee who raised the biggest alarm the biggest concern there was still the people saw the pictures coming out of Milwaukee Long Lines as people waited to Bo. How what folks understand diving. Deep in Texas and Wisconsin because essentially pretty much there are fights like this in every single state in the country right now over what to do about elections and how to do it were obviously focusing on some of the bigger stakes are higher provan. Want Trust me folks. This isn't just unique to Wisconsin or Texas or Michigan. This debate in this fight is everywhere. Alexa Texas pioneered early voting. At least in my mind it was one of the pioneers. They in Tennessee early on. Pirate early voting. It has been trimmed back and I will admit I don't refresh me on. What is the current rules is two weeks? Three weeks is everywhere. I know it got sort of clawed back a little bit. What is the state of early voting in person early voting in Texas so in person early voting in Texas is a pretty generous compared to some other states for a typical big election like a November general? You're talking about two full weeks. Almost early voting including at least one weekend in there and if you talk to any local election officials they will tell you that they value that early voting immensely because that means they can keep the line shorter on election day and get counting rolling much quicker than they could without early voting. We've got a primary run off election coming up in July. Those usually have a truncated early voting periods about only five days that's been doubled because of the pandemic so we'll have to figure out. Election officials are figuring out if they can make that work with all of the increased requirements on them during for voting in a pandemic. But you know the early voting period is pretty special for for local election officials. Just because they're able to kind of you know space out voter so that we don't have these ridiculously long lines on election day because we're a state with more than fifteen million voters so obviously our turnout isn't as great as that..

It's going to be about hope and making sure that people understand how important it is to be intentional won't hold. It just doesn't happen. What big ideas?

They'll be open until eight o'clock? Tonight. It as a primary election and, that has changed some things a little bit here to help us look at the primary and some of the races going on TMZ force Charles Benson good morning. Charles your morning gain in like it's got to be. A problem for people who would like to for instance Charles. Vote in. Milwaukee county sheriff race but if you do that then you're not going to be able to cast any votes for Republicans can you explain why that is yeah if people are driving right now you've got to stay in your lane where you go That's the way they do it for primary probably frustrating because in the general election you could go on either side. Of the ballot but when you go into the ballot today you got if you want. To, be, vote for Republican candidates can only stay in the, Republican lane there you came back gopher, for exactly might say why this person for the democratic governor but. I want this person for the Republican. Senate you just can't do, that we're that becomes trickier is folks for in Milwaukee county who may see a conservative candidate for sheriff someone that they like but cannot do, that because. They would, have to cross over into the, democratic layup talking about Richard Schmidt who seems to have some conservative, backing or, people take might be more, conservative choice. There although you have earned, Al Lucas as well trying to make that race a close races well. Charles given the way that Wisconsin's? Primaries. Are set up does it does, it in any way shape the message of the candidates Because like you mentioned people who are. People are gonna have some tough choices to, make whether they want to vote for, a Senate candidate or or here Milwaukee vote for, a sheriff yeah I don't see that much, happening I really what I'm looking for is where people are within the Republican party or within the Democratic. Party look at the race for the US Senate primary okay both certainly Lee book. Mayor Kennedy Nicholson had tried to appeal to those. Are Trump supporters but they're. Also trying at least to get to the Scott Walker the Paul Ryan Republicans as well which has been reliable for those, two candidates so we're is the Republican party has it looks forward to who is the candidate that best represents them come November those who have liked the Trump supporter and believe that Trump in. Terms of what he has done in Wisconsin or is it the sort of a true. Conservative, both, of those candidates have all of those principles aren't, just wondering which win today and who, will help you get to the That finish line on, the democratic side also invoice new face vision for? The party there are some days that we have not seen on a ballot in a while but then there's also a reliable Leading about and so where, does the Democratic Party go from, here. As it looks to the future forest Charles Benson our guest as we talk about today's primaries that are going on in Wisconsin Bill get out, there and vote you, have until, eight o'clock, tonight Charles do. You think that voters overall are. As engaged as members of the media are because primaries typically. Don't generate as big of a turnout obviously as a general election you, know, and that's that's the situation here. Is the, middle of August we just got. Done what, state fair people are about school we talked to one voter. Last night of the ten o'clock news said yeah I'll go home and, Google tonight you know to see who's on the ballot so yeah the majority of the people. In the state are not engaged we're not gonna see a fifty to sixty percent voter turnout and so. But I think those who do go out hopefully have been paying attention to what's, going on we've had to debate In the democratic. Primary two Republican primary Yes Yes no, see huge voter. Turnout today's NBA, fours Charles. Benson thank you so, much. Charles you're. Welcome appreciate your. Time, seven twenty.

"A high of Eighty-three Sunday sunny and warm a high of. Eighty four Monday sunny a high of, eighty five Tuesday partly cloudy a high of eighty five degrees. In Waukesha Eighty-one in Milwaukee it is seventy seven degrees Tuesday is primary day, in Wisconsin. By the way we will be on the air with you beginning at eight o'clock and going until I was told today the races are decided people give speeches that, sort of thing so come here with us at WTMJ wanted to tap into some of the expertise we have here in, the building Charles Benson one of the best in the. Business when it comes to politics. And, he and I sat down and discussed what he's looking for as, we head towards primary Tuesday the two big races that people seem to be talking about and. Focused on our the democratic gubernatorial race in that primary and then they Republicans trying to get that Senate. Nomination let's talk on the democratic side boy Tony Everts continues to be in the lead according to most polls but there are still a lot, of people who either seem, undecided or not that enthused John I talked, to a lot of Democrats and a lot of, Republicans and I asked them. One simple, question tell. Me who's gonna win on election night and they all laugh. Because they don't know it It, just seems like a. Lot of people think Tuesday can be a very unpredictable day yes Tony verse has led in the Marquette pole yes, Tony Iverson. Has the name recognition but there hasn't been a huge groundswell for his campaign thus leading people to believe that because of eight candidates at maybe you're looking at three, potentially four that now have a chance of this Malin Mitchell Kelder Roy's as the other options there that something could happen, on election night and so because of that I keep. Wondering wow what what is going. To, do and that's what makes it kind of exciting everybody wants to, know what's going to happen what's going to happen we just may have to wait to all. The votes are counted we know there is more enthusiasm on the democratic side that we've seen at least. Around the country but because of the candidates we haven't seen a lot of enthusiasm for just One candidate have Malin Mitchell and Kelder Roy's been hurt by the fact that. Lower tier candidates have stuck around Matt Flynn and mayor SOG Len and a handful of. Others. I think that the dynamics of that you. Have, eight, and for the the voter, to sort of focus there hasn't been a universal message. Right now this weekend if you're just starting to plug into this race whoa are you going to give bombarded by ads all over the place and you're like who's this and why and but you talk to people who do. This kind of work to, get your candidate, elected, paid advertising can make a big? Difference and at least the top three candidates. Are going to be on the air this. Weekend trying to make? That case to see if they can come out on top and. What is it gonna take to be on top John is it twenty percent of the vote twenty. Five percent of the vote, with so many people spread out and voter turnout Is not. Going to be huge, numbers here we are pretty much in the middle of August today c. j. force Charles Benson is with us I know you've been focusing a lot Charles also on the Republican battle. For that nomination for the US Senate what are you looking at as we head into the homestretch right, so we have liuqiu Khmer and Kevin Nicholson we know that Leah book mayor has got the Republican party. Behind. Her she's got big endorsements of behind her with speaker Ryan and? A number of, other big? Folks who? Are backing her so I asked people does the ground game and the party endorsement and ability to happen that to get out the. Vote in essence the people who have been there to get out the vote for Scott, Walker in the previous three elections going to help get her across the finish line certainly so in what we know as the wild districts? Waukesha ozaukee Washington counties she should do? Pretty well then pretty well known in that area the question is Kevin Nicholson has A lot of outside money, in. Right now outspending Leofoo Khmer with a lot of paid advertising will that. Be the difference here going into the finish line and again when I talked to be on the Republican side they. Don't know it's too close to call isn't it nobody really no it's too close to call there were a lot of. Undecided where, do the undecideds go who's getting out the vote all of these things make it for another unpredictable night one thing that I will wait for and keep. Watching. For does Donald Trump President Trump enter into that race as he has, done in so many other races and change the dynamics and I. Would think then determine, the outcome That is today's TM j. fours Charles Benson. So we are, on the air. On primary night that's election night we're going to have some of our journalists out at. The key races they'll be with Kevin Nicholson and Lee mirror and some of the, gubernatorial candidates, and we will have, complete coverage I'll be here in the, studio with some, guests, providing analysis that begins at eight o'clock on.
