"Almost anything is possible. We have to bring public sentiment along by way of our patriotic duty of oversight well in talking about Democratic Strategy. There was okay kerfuffle of sorts last week between Nancy Pelosi and some members of the caucus specifically freshman <hes> where she asks if they say of an issue come to her don't tweet and Alexandria Alexandria Cossio Cortez took it very personally thought it was focused on the four freshmen specifically her and even a said that it was racially charged which took it a whole new level in her latest column for The New York Times entitled Scaling Woke Back Mountain Maureen Dowd writes in part this the seventy nine year old speaker and the twenty nine year old freshmen are trapped in a generational and ideological tangle that poses a real threat to the Democrats its ability to be Donald Trump next year A._O._C. should consider the possibility that people who disagree with her do not disagree with her collar. Congress is not a place where you achieve radical progress certainly not in divided government. It's a place where you work at a bit and work at it and don't get everything you want. The progressive acts of though anyone dares to disagree with them as bad not wrong but mad guilty of human failing some impurity that is moral evil that justifies their venom in the age of trump. There is no more stupid proposition than that Nancy Pelosi than that Nancy Pelosi is the problem if l._l._C. and her pig millions and acolytes side that burning running down the house is more important than opposing trump they will be left with a racist backward president and the emotional satisfaction of their own purity and I couldn't agree with that more and what a great line if if Nancy Pelosi's your problem I mean what stupid proposition in time I checked. She's done this before trump clear. I wanted to go to you briefly here. I would be a complete hypocrite if I could A._F._C.. And other they're firebrands were doing their first year in Congress because I did the same from the right and I spent the rest of my time trying to build bridges even though I still taking pretty absolute positions positions on balancing the budget taxes etc etc but it is after a time you'd figure you can't do anything by yourself. There and you do hope that some freshmen members burst of this class just like people were up in freshman members of my class would understand that before they did too much damage to their own careers and do the caucus they represent yeah. I think the thing that was really the head scratcher for me and frankly really made me angry was the notion that A._O._C.'s chief of staff staffer would go after cherise David's. This congresswoman knows cherise David. She is history-making in Congress. She is the first native of American elected to Congress. She is the second open lesbian elected to Congress. She represents a suburban district in Kansas where she deposed a Republican who had been in office for a long time. She and other freshmen are the face of taking the majority in Congress. It is not the only two people who won primaries we had dozens of people beat Republicans the notion they would go after her personally really and that he would call her her first name in a tweet..

"But even then I think it it Hughes read with regards to that one of our listeners. Thurston tweeted, would you say that Kansas is much more purple than the deep red that the coasts and the media often think of I would say Kansas is still largely read, but with some blue pockets indefinitely, some purple pockets of one thing as she brought up the Kansas City metropolitan area that's trending blue. And I think you saw that with cherise David's election. You saw that with how well governor Kelley performed in the Kansas City metro area and actually down across the ballot. Democrats won all of the statewide races in Johnson county, which Johnson county was traditionally a Republican leaning area. It was a suburban kind of country club Republican area. But. That is certainly starting to trend to a bit more democratic during the the Trump era. There was a real rejection of co Bach and Israel rejection of of of Kevin Yoder. So I would say that area is trending blue. Which is just it. You know, it buffers Missouri, which had a blue district, Missouri. You have some pockets of blue in Wichita and Pika, and certainly Lawrence Kansas, very blue. But overall, the state has is very read with regards to governor Kelley governing with the legislature. That is dominated by Republicans. There are eleven governors in this position right now President Obama was in this position during his final two years. I wonder what we learned from governor Kelley that might inform how those other eleven how those other governors might govern particularly because she strikes me as really content in her spaces a policy wonk as kind of a pragmatic policy thinker as opposed to a more ideological. Vision driven candidate. I mean in education funding, obviously, it it has dominated. Every Kansas legislative session that I've seen. I almost feels like it's dominated Kansas since the beginning of time education funding, I would say her plan on education funding was much more moderate than a lot of Democrats or even the school districts her base in the education advocacy, community it, I mean that it's it's worth noting that there were some Democrats who were against her plan because it didn't go far enough. But that was a way she was able to get Republican lawmakers on board. Also, the fact that she is in way the way that she is pursuing Medicaid expansion of going through the legislature is very key. There is some grayness here the Affordable Care Act gave governors the ability to unilaterally pursue Medicaid expansion. However during the Brownback years the legislature passed a Bill which governor Brownback signed into law requiring the governor to seek legislative approval. And she is adhering. To that. And she is trying to finalize in the legislature to do that, even as even as Republican leaders themselves are very much against that. Yeah. Why is that because there have been some more conservative states that have decided to expand Medicaid in their states? What's the hold up in Kansas? It's I think it's it's at this point. It's become a little bit of a wedge issue. It's I mean, it's, but one thing that's worth noting their rural hospitals in Kansas that have closed and those hospitals point to the failure to expand, Medicaid as one of the reasons, that's one reason why there is a groundswell. And I mean, she she leaned into that issue more. So than the the democratic candidate who had ran into fourteen who largely avoided it because you know, at that point ObamaCare was very kind of toxic political thing that she leaned into that as one of her key promises, but for for the Republicans who oppose it there the business. This community in Kansas is still. Is still against the the Kansas chamber of commerce and groups like that. And so it somewhat of a base issue..

But with cherise David's taking that Republican incumbent congressional seat and with Laura Kelly taking the governorship and with these four members of the state legislature flipping from Republican to democrat Kansas is still red.

Let's bring in WWE land Joe to Tim's cubic for more on the results of all these many voters yesterday, Tim. Yeah. The question everybody's asking this morning is why so many people show up, and you you would like to say, it was civic responsibility people doing that. But I have nothing to do with. What was going on yesterday? A lot of that stuff was simply anger at Donald Trump, and it was helpful in Oakland County, even in McComb county and Gretchen Whitmer benefited from the female vote go shooting out so much. You never found. A message that connected with those voters and he needed them in order to win because Donald Trump headed and gross girl Schutte, and even Mr. shooting never really mentioned that during the general. Richard everybody knew and so he couldn't get out from underneath that. And the fact that Mr. Trump's Mr. Schutte and didn't coming here at the eleventh hour to help them win was positive that. They didn't think he was been witnessing but huge voter turnout. There's good for the democracy. They voted on a lot of stuff. But at the end of the Gretchen Whitmer would still have a Republican controlled legislature in Michigan house under our control a set under our control. And so she's going to be having a really good opportunity to prove that she can work with the other side because she has to otherwise, we're gonna have a stalemate nothing will get done. In Ray words, we'll be sick. And Tim just a quick question. John James lost to incumbent democrat Debbie stabber now in the US Senate race, but he gave her a good run. What his future? Do you think?

And then you have Laura Kelly who who beat out Republican crisco back for the governorship. You her? Heard her there talk about a change in the direction of our state. Why did co back lose this race? Well is large part. I think it's because Laura Kelly did her a level fast to tie Chris coupon to former Republican governor Sam Brownback. You may remember him he cut income taxes deeply that led to a budget crisis in the state, and I I think there's still a Brownback hangover in the state, and I think Senator Kelly's he's a state Senator was successful in tying to Brownback because box in the promised to cut state spending. And also to revisit and reimpose the Brownback tax cuts worth noting in the couple of seconds that we have left. We've heard a lot about women doing very well in these midterms. That's the case in Kansas. So far. I think that had something to do with the to exit polls suggested that there was women. Women really turned out for both of these candidates. Casey. You are Jim McLean. Thanks, jim. You bet. While Democrats won the house of representatives and a range of midwestern governors races last night. Some progressive stars lost Beto rock fell short in the Texas. Senate race Andrew gillum lost the governor's race in Florida. We could name a few others. So did the party on the whole lean farther left? Jeff Weaver is our next guest. He was manager of Senator Bernie Sanders two thousand sixteen presidential campaign remains a Sanders adviser, Mr. Weaver. Thanks for coming in my pleasure. Happy to be here. So how is the party different than what it was based on who is going into office and whose going out? Well, I think when you look at last night's election results, you had progressive candidates running in deeply red places and purple places battleground places, Florida, Texas, and other places who really outperformed how Democrats traditionally do in those areas, and we also saw in the upper midwest you saw the defeat of Scott Walker. You know, you saw in Michigan a candidate Whitmer winning with who supports a fifteen dollars minimum wage and a host of other progressive initiative. So I think you are seeing a real transformation in the party in terms of where it's winning and who's winning? Although you have Democrats who won in places like Oklahoma and South Carolina, and Kansas who might be you might see them as culturally progressive because they're more diverse. They're women they're minorities there openly gay, but they're not necessarily endorsing Medicare for all. Which is something that Bernie Sanders wanted people to well, you know, if you look at the candidates who are running and winning the center of gravity in the party has shifted while they may not all support Medicare for all are they certainly support many of the signature progressive issues. Again, I mentioned many of them. Support us significantly raising the minimum wage, many of them support not only protecting social security, but expanding social security. So I think you're seeing a real shift in the party away from it sort of nineteen ninety neoliberal dalliance moving. I'm back to where the party was an historic nineteen ninety s neo-liberal dalliance, which is a fancy way, I guess to say Bill Clinton ISM is what you're talking about. Bill Clinton represented a whole movement within the Democratic Party. By people who in an earlier time would have been called Rockefeller Republicans who came into the Democratic Party, moved it in a very pro corporate direction. And I think you're seeing the Democratic Party rediscovering it's a routes. Our colleagues got detro- is in the studio here as well. So the twenty twenty presidential race may be underway by the end of the week Bernie Sanders. Other Democrats thinking about running take the end of the week, Scott. That's the optimistic. Bernie Sanders is going to be having conversations with you and others deciding what to do. So I'm curious for you. What results from last night would be part of that conversation and would tell you the most about what the map could look like, and what sort of democrat could do. Well, well, I think what you saw last night was the Democratic Party and now on the road to regaining power in this country. We obviously took the House Republicans did well in the Senate. But of course, with a map that was very favorable to them. In fact, I heard reported earlier on this show the most favorable map for them since the beginning of the twentieth century. So in two thousand twenty what you're seeing. Now is that the blue what we call the blue wall, the Pennsylvania, Wisconsin Michigan is being rebuilt by the Democratic Party. And I think bodes well. Because if you look at twenty sixteen Hillary Clinton had won Pennsylvania, Wisconsin in Michigan should be present United States, very briefly. If we assume this wasn't some large measure and anti-trump vote that means some people voted for Democrats who maybe aren't sold on Democrats. What is one thing? Democrats can do or have to. Do with control of just one house of congress to persuade people. They're the right party. Well, I think the the house of representatives has to start passing a serious progressive initiatives, like raising the minimum wage like a serious, transportation, bell and other initiatives that will show the American people what they could have if Democrats controlled both houses of congress and the presidency, Jeff Weaver. Thanks for coming by a pleasure talking with you. Thank you. Appreciate it. He was the campaign manager for Bernie Sanders in two thousand sixteen and remains a senior advisor to the Senator. All right this morning. We're hearing from voters about what it was like to cast their ballots on election day into Moines. Iowa teller Voss spent the night in the ER with stomach pains. But then she told her doctor she had somewhere to be straight up just like as long as I get out by like eight thirty. So I can drive to my polling place be great. And in ashville, North Carolina Clare Ryan voted this year as she always does motivated by tradition that her mother started the name most important part was if you don't vote on election day, you're not getting better Clair's mother passed away years ago, but her family still lives by this rule. It's gone onto the next generation. I've done a message to my dribbling Germany, and my sister said that she met her sign up to polling place, then he looked up guess, we both deserve dinner tonight. Our former colleague Michel Norris was was observing that.
Americas heartland issues referendum on Trump
"Today. We're bringing you a story from America's heartland the midwestern state of Kansas US voters will head to the polls tomorrow for the highly anticipated midterm elections. And there are a number of battleground races to watch one of them being Kansas third congressional district. What's happening? There is happening in a lot of places across the US many traditional Republicans. Suburban voters are rejecting politicians who've align themselves with President Trump, and in some cases, the rallying behind non traditional candidates as a sort of referendum on the president's policies. The F T Jennifer Siegel spoke with data journalists Brooke FOX who's been covering this race. Br grew up in Kansas near the district and last month. She went back to talk to voters. So Brooke tell me about Kansas City for someone who's never been there. What do they need to know about this district? So the city sits on the border of Kansas and Missouri. The third congressional district in Kansas City is mostly made up of the suburbs of the city. It's pretty well known in the area as being more affluent district, although it does include more urban less affluent areas as well, but on the whole UC higher levels of income higher levels of education than you would see in other districts in the state a lot of people that currently live in Kansas City, generally have family roots somewhere in farming. And a lot of them have moved to the city as a result of job opportunity there that is in more the professional in management industry versus in the agriculture industry, and give us a sense of the political landscape there. What is voter registration look like in this district. It's pretty close to being split down the middle. Slightly more majority to Republican side. This district is not Representative of the rest of the state because the rest of the state represents more rural districts. This district is Representative of what you find it other suburban districts around the country, so areas close to big cities. I think off hand counted maybe five or six suburban districts where you're seeing a democratic challenger outpolling, a Republican incumbent, and that's that is happening across the country, not necessarily just in Kansas. Right. And we seem to be seeing a trend where Republicans who have historically been in safer seats are facing competitive challengers on the left, but let's talk about the key race in this district. It's four seat in the house of representatives told me about the candidates, so Kevin Yoder. This is his fifth time running to be a congressman for this district. And he is pretty well known for being a budget guy. He's fairly moderate compared with other Republicans, and he is facing. A very strong challenge from a woman named cherise David's she's lesbian. She's a native American woman, and she's also a former professional MMA fighter. So she sort of a surprising candidate she's never run for office before, but she did work as a fellow in the White House in the department of transportation. So she does have some political experience in her background. So you talked to quite a few voters in this district. One of them was a man named Steve rose, and he's pretty frustrated with Kevin Yoder, the incumbent tell me a little bit more about Steve. And what he told you Steve rose is a columnist in the Kansas City area who has voted for Kevin every time he's run in the past. But this year, he's frustrated because he thinks that the congressman is voting too closely aligned with Donald Trump's policies, and that that's not reflective of what the district wants. And here we used to be. It's no longer Maher is now Trump junior more he's inset with Trump the more. He's also with is this for Steve rose told me that there's nothing that Kevin Yoder has really done to merit a frustrated public that what they're frustrated with his Donald Trump and the more closely. He is viewed as being aligned with him is where he he's going to run into trouble. So voters there seemed to be issuing a sort of referendum on the president. I put the referendum question to several people in the district. And they all emphatically said, yes, this is a referendum on the president and this idea of a referendum. What's the driving force behind it? I did talk to quite a few people who are moderate Republicans themselves. And a lot of them are switching party lines to vote for the democrat. They just like to see someone stand up to Donald Trump, essentially don't think that Donald Trump necessary. Appeals to a lot of these more centrist voters in the suburban districts.

"I think it's not something we necessarily could have anticipated. If we were to get our crystal balls out after the sixteen election that healthcare would be such a dominant force, and it's really both because so many Americans are affected by this particularly women and are women candidates are shining examples of people running on healthcare stories personal healthcare stories, in many cases. But it's also the fact that one of the. The very first things Republican congress did with seek to undo the Affordable Care Act including protections for things like pre existing conditions. That's playing out in a huge way in the Missouri. Senate race or Josh Holly has been on the wrong side of the people of Missouri on pre existing conditions and Claire mccaskill has stuck with them. We've seen candidates actually get into races because of healthcare. I mentioned Lauren Underwood earlier running in Illinois fourteen she's a nurse. She's a pre existing healthcare condition. Her member of congress. I represented Halpern said he would not vote to take away protections for pre existing conditions. And then he did. And she said, well, I'm gonna run against you. Now, she's in a position where she can win. So I think it resonates because American people are affected by it every day, but also because Republicans from day one and Donald Trump made it their priority to take away those protections. And that that sets up an undeniable difference that I think is going to drive a lot of voters to vote for Democrats this fall, well, you can see that. Because even Republicans now are running advertisements about pre existing conditions in Missouri. It's been really quite something to see the Holly advertisements talking about how he will protect preexisting conditions. His record speaks for itself, though. Really? And I think his repeated attack on healthcare, particularly women's reproductive health. You can't separate those things you can't rewrite history at this point. And Claire mccaskill is running the kind of campaign where she's going to hold him accountable. And she has a lot of help to do it. Okay. We talked before taping a little bit about our shared main ties, and my Facebook feed is filled with friends and relatives talking about whether Senator Susan Collins is in trouble if she decides to run for election in twenty twenty due to her vote in favor of confirming Justice Brad Kavanagh, where do you fit into that calculus? And what are your plans? There's been a little bit of talk about what you might be thinking about doing it twenty twenty. I am one hundred percent focused on this November November of two thousand eighteen and electing a record number of women in Maine and all across the country. And then I think after that are. Sights will shift towards twenty twenty and myself and some incredible people across the state of Maine. We'll have that conversation with our family with our friends with our communities, and and really take another look at twenty twenty. But until then it's one hundred percent focus on two thousand eighteen we'll staying with that team Senator Grassley has promised that he will help raise three million dollars for Susan Collins to help stave off any challenges. And he's described Collins Collins is harsher critics as radical reaction. That's mirrors language, we've seen from the president this week trying to re reframe passionate. Shakily women, but women and men across the country who've been speaking out about their anger, and frustration and sadness and a lot of cases related to the Cavanaugh vote. That language is is really nothing more than attempt to distract from the fact that there's a lot of Americans who are actually scared right now that the cavenaugh hearings works from attic for millions of Americans who've been who are survivors of sexual assault and sexual violence, and that they live in communities all across this country, including Maine, and I think it's the cabinet hearings are not going to go away right at the congress is going to get elected this fall. I believe Democrats will be in the majority and the cabinet hearings are not going to go away. Whether you're going to see that play out in Maine, you're going to see that play out in South Carolina. You're going to see that play out in Iowa. It's gonna be everywhere. And I think American people will will remember Emily's list executive director, Emily Kane on C Span's, newsmakers, five minutes left. Well, we can't not talk about Nancy Pelosi and how she fits into races that are going on now. And how what her future might hold? What are your thoughts on Nancy Pelosi as a potential returning speaker? Are there other candidates that you think I should think about getting into the mix to steer Pelosi thoughts? Well, you know, I am Emily's list. We are focused on putting the congress in a position where we can even have a conversation about getting back the gavel for speaker. And I believe that Nancy Pelosi wakes up every day thinking about the same thing about making sure that the Democrats are in the majority. So that then we get to have that conversation. We have to give credit to leader Pelosi for her time as speaker for being an incredible leader for Democrats during a very difficult time, and it will be up to the new congress, including her what the next step is for the leadership, but candidates are being asked during the campaign whether or not they will support her in that position they are. And and that's no surprise, right? That that was. The same in two thousand fourteen in two thousand sixteen. It's a natural question for candidates to get. And you know, what I know? And we're talking to our candidates is they're all answering in the best way. That is best for them for their race for their district, and is reflective of conversations they're having with real people with real voters from their communities about the kind of leadership they want to have in congress and that really runs the gamut across the country. There have been there have been a lot of reports recently about potential barriers to voting, particularly among minority communities. There's a story this week out of Georgia about more than fifty thousand voters mostly African Americans whose applications for voter registration have been suspended because their identification or application didn't match other records in state and federal government. Is minority recruitment a a policy priority for Emily's list. And and what are you how does minority recruitment fit into your overall strategy of electing more women and is voter suppression in voting rights are those priorities forty this year. What are you doing about it? Well, let's start this quickly. What's happening in Georgia? Stacey abrams. I think it's no it's no accident that suddenly we're having this conversation about held up. Registrations for African American voters as we are looking to elect the first African American woman has governor in our country's history. Stacey Abrams is tied in those polls in Georgia. No one ever thought that could be possible. But I've known Stacey Abrams for a lot of years. There's a friend of mine, and she's been a friend of Emily's list for a long time. And I know that she knows what's going on in Georgia. And so this is completely ridiculous. It's not an accident. I'm glad people not only Stacey and her team. But also nonpartisan sore. Are getting involved to say this is wrong, and we need to take action. But when we think about the importance of diversity in our elected office for Emily's list. That has always been a priority. Forty percent of the women we've helped to elect in our history have been women of color, and we know we need to do even more. We're on track. This election cycle to elect not one. But two of the first native American women ever to be elected to the US congress. Deb, Holland and cherise, David Lee. Not know this Texas has never sent a Latina to congress, and we will send to at least this year, Veronica Escobar and Sylvia Garcia. This is the result of deliberate recruitment efforts by Emily's list and other partner organizations to get these women in these races early and on the ground in primaries that will continue to be a priority for us. And I believe that is what the American people should want inch expect we have time for one last question by the Evan. Well, I have to ask about twenty twenty again. Are there candidates? We hear about lots of different democratic potential candidates. Are there a couple of people that you think would really keep women excited and engaged in the upcoming election thinking to twenty twenty I'm aware of four women whose names come up a lot. You've probably heard them. They're all in the US Senate Senator Warren closure, Harris and jello brand. And I'm sure there will be more. It's amazing to us an exciting for us Emily's list to think that there could be multiple pro choice democratic women launching serious campaigns for president. And I'm sure there will be a large number of great men who will run as well. We're lucky as Democrats to have such a broad and diverse number of people taking a look at taking on Donald Trump in twenty twenty. But again, it's only a brief conversation happening right now where we can get to that conversation. The way we want to unless we have big wins this fall where will you be on election night? I think I think I'm going to be here. My travel schedule has been changing by the day. I'm headed to Illinois. I know I'm going to New York. I'm going to something else. Got added today. I'm not sure Virginia for sure we have staff all over the country in the home stretch. I think I'll be here in DC. And I've got my list ready to check off all the winds as they come in. Well, thank you for being here this week on C Span's newsmakers. Thank you for. Having me. The moderator bans. Susan Swain is makers is back with Julie vica wits. The Wall Street Journal Amy Gardner of the Washington Post both covering national politics for their newspapers. We just talked to Emily Kane of Emily's list and. She talks about the cavenaugh hearings is really be a motivating force. But in fact, Republicans are saying the same thing and Mitch McConnell and speech on the floor of the Senate right after the vote said that this this hearings had done more to to galvanize their base than anything that the party operatives have been able to do. So are both true. I think there's a little bit of truth to both. I think there's been some polling this week. Politico published a poll this week that showed that there's been more momentum and energy measured on the democratic side than on the Republican side, but not by a huge margin as a result of the confirmation hearings and the result of the vote. I do hear a little bit of wishful thinking, and what Senator McConnell says about the anger? It's certainly there was anger during the process, but does it last now that Cavanaugh was actually confirmed is the is the big question as I think it's an issue that varies depending on the race. Of course, Emily mentioned how different candidates are messing differently depending on their race their state district. And there's no. No question that the the top democratic incumbent senators in. Republican states that President Trump won in two thousand sixteen are having to navigate a more difficult path on the Cavanaugh vote than somebody running in a bluer district or state Heidi. Heitkamp is a great example of this estate where the majority of voters are Republican majority of voters supported right Kavanagh's nomination, and she voted against it. And that's going to be tricky for her. Could you talk about from your perch about the amount of money going into this cycle? It seems like it's breaking all kinds of records is it. In fact, it is in fact, breaking all types of records just today. Beto Aurora who's running this kind of amazingly well funded campaign in Texas to unseat Senator Ted Cruz announced I think that he had raised like thirty eight million dollars. It's just a record smashing amount numbers that are coming in from racist all across the country are setting the bar higher and higher. And like Emily was saying it is fueled a lot by these small donors people who are have become more comfortable giving money online. It's just so natural now in our everyday lives that it's translating over into politics as well. And you've got some really great services on particularly the democratic side that have been around for a long time like act blue comes to mind that you're really seeing the sort of the power of small donors the cycle. I think that small donor giving on the democratic side is sort of the takeaway money story of two thousand eighteen well, we're talking big picture. Would you explain how early voting is impacting the way people campaign? It's it's something seems to gain more traction every cycle and fully two thirds of the states have some form of early voting in play. So people are already casting their ballots and we've got three weeks to go. How does that affect people in jobs like Emily canes job to get people to the polls, and and the messaging, I think it makes it much more difficult, and I think that the turnout operations in the field operations are happy to gear up earlier in earlier in earlier. I think I read a statistic this month that in North Carolina as an example fifty percent something close to fifty percent of voters cast absentee or early ballots, which is an astonishing astonishing figuring. It means that the some portion of the outcome is set long. Before election day. So we have to read polling data differently as we get closer to November and the campaigns have to be messaging and doing voter turnout efforts a month ahead, which is remarkable. What about the question that you all asked about voter suppression? That's happening in a number of states. Really, it's states saying they're cleaning up their voting rolls and trying to go into the balloting with more integrity. But what what is your reporting showing about what's going on? Well, I think any you've done a little bit more reporting on this than I have. So I'll let you take this question. But in general, I think that you're just seeing groups get involved in litigation and engaging in sort of, you know, public relations efforts to get the word out that this might be happening in Georgia. For example. It is a big story. It's the type of thing that a couple of cycles ago may have been going on but not gaining traction. And now it's front and center I began with President Trump claiming that three million people had voted illegally in two thousand sixteen. There's no evidence for this..

"We'll be taking you to a Senate debate in the state of Washington this between Senator Maria Cantwell and her Republican challenger Susan Hutchison. This'll be moderated by KOMO fours, Mary nam and KIRO seven Essex porter. And this will also be live on C span television. And until then we catch up on more of campaign twenty eighteen and races that we're keeping an eye on that Washington is keeping an eye on in this interview from earlier on Washington journal across how who rucks who reports for national journal. He has their political editor here to talk about the November elections, particularly in light of current events in the last few weeks. Good morning to you. Good morning painter. How would you say overall how Cavanaugh plays out into these November elections? He plays to both parties basis. Democrats are as energized as they've never been and Republicans have gotten a boost of momentum especially in the Senate races that are being fought on conservative turf. So if you had to look at it big picture for the midterms Democrats are looking are looking in commanding position to win back the house, but Republicans have gotten a jolt of momentum in the Senate and may end up picking a couple of seats. We even heard Mitch McConnell say about the Republican enthusiasm because of what happened cavenaugh that bears itself out as far as polling, and what you might be seeing on the ground there. Democrats already had momentum's. So even though this energizes women, this energizes liberals, there wasn't a whole lot more to begin given that you look at the elections of the last couple years Democrats are showing up Republicans work. There was a Republican apathy, even some Republican overconfidence and some of the more conservative parts of the country Republicans have more to gain from this battle, especially in these red state Senate races that they're hoping to pick up on the house side. Remind people how many seats have to be overturned in order to get Democrats to take possession of the house, and what seats could be looking like as far as toss ups, and whatever could add to that number Democrats need to win twenty three twenty three house seats. There are over ninety seats in play that Republicans hold according to the the cook political report. So the, you know, the the battleground map of districts that Democrats can win is getting larger and larger and they're predominantly taking place in suburban parts of the country where President Trump is not particularly popular and where the. Base where especially suburban women independent women are turning away from the Republican party. You spent time in Kansas over the weekend. President Trump was there. But particularly what were you looking at when it comes to these races. I was in overland park, Kansas. It's in the suburbs of Kansas City. Kevin Yoder is the Republican congressman been there for four terms. He's someone who's always one pretty easily. He's had sort of on the Senate right image in in congress. But he's facing a real challenge from I first time political candidate who surprise a lot of Democrats in the primary and is leaning in many of the public polls. And it's a suburban area one of the most affluent parts of the country. These are the types of part. These are the kind of demographic a parts of the country that have moved very very much away from President Trump. Why Cherie stave it's having such strong showing? Well, she certainly energizes the base. She's she would be the first native American candidate congresswoman from Kansas. She's someone who raised two point seven million. L dollars in the last three months, which is. That's that's that's the type of money that senators raise not not I type house candidates. But there is a just a huge energy and any democrat or anyone who looks at the Cavanaugh hearings it, and it gets really upset on the left is showing up at the polls. And they're doing a lot to organize it and get activated into their community from that money that she raises that coming all from in state or is that coming from outside influences to well. There's a lot of outside money coming from. I mean, and that's to be expected given that this is a nationalized political environment. And there's a lot of democratic money coming into the house because as energy among the activists to take back the majority that's an issue, by the way that Kevin Yoder the Republican congressman is attacking her on. He's saying he's raising his money in state. She's going to fund raisers in New York outside of Kansas to get a lot of her cash. Let's show. Some folks who are watching what ads look like in Kansas, particularly when it comes to this race that our guest is talking about here are some of those ads. Kevin Yoder and democrat candidate cherise David's were scheduled to debate today. But then democratic candidate cherise Davis pulled out so David do not appear this event iota was there. But cherise David's was a no show. I was a iota voter her Kevin Yoder nearly every time, but then he voted to do away with protections for pre existing conditions, meaning my breast cancer, meaning my heart condition, meaning my cancer could cost thousands more for coverage or mean that I'm denied care altogether. Yoder took hundreds of thousands from big insurance then voted with them. I'm no longer voting for him. Nope. This Notre this voter this voter is not for Yoder. David's I approve this message. So one from Kevin Yoder one from cherise David's break them down as far as the issues are concerned the Yoder ad that is an emerging theme from the congressman who knows he's running a little bit behind as trying to portray himself as the underdog. And I when I was in Kansas. He was at this local bar association event that the democrat David's decided to skip. And he was making the case that she's running light like like the front runner and trying to avoid voters not trying to be accessible in the final weeks of the campaign. And now they've put that message up on television. It remains to be seen whether that will work, but he sort of accusing the democrat of getting cocky running out the clock and not really talking about the issues that matter to to Kansas City voters, the democratic add by David is an drives home a point that a lot of Democrats in the country are talking about healthcare protections for people with preexisting conditions. Democrats believe that the issue of health care and the Republican vote to repeal ObamaCare is a winning issue for them. Not just in the. Democratic parts of the country, but in parts of the country that are that are much more conservative, and that's a driving theme of David's campaign, and it's one she feels as getting hurt an advantage when it comes. Then you were talking about money when it comes to Mr. Yoder how much does he support how much support is he getting from national Republicans also from President Trump? So that was an issue in the final week of the national Republican congressional committee, which funds the most vulnerable incumbents on the Republican side pulled out some of the money in Kansas City, but there's another super Pac the congressional leadership fund which also still airing ads played quite a bit of money still in that district. So iota was trying to say he's he's fighting this race on his own now. But in reality, there is still outside Republican money going into Kansas City, our guest here to talk about the November elections, and particularly what we'll take a look at some of these racist. Both the house and Senate side you can ask them thoughts about specific races. You can ask them overall questions about the November elections two zero two seven four eight. This is a recorded program. No phone calls at this time. Please awesome. For democrat. That's and independence. Two two seven four eight eight thousand two if you wanna post thoughts on Twitter you can do. So at C span WJ is is there something to the iota race that could be played out. A specially to these vulnerable races that you're seeing in the house to me. This Yoder race is emblematic of the challenges that Republicans face holding the house when you have a democrat who no one really knew about about a year ago raising record amounts of money. You see the energy on on the left? That's really at a p suburban districts, and when you look at the battleground of house races, many of them are taking place in these affluent suburban battlegrounds that Republicans once held pretty comfortably. The Yoder district is a district that voted for Mitt Romney by double digits in two thousand twelve but it actually voted for Hillary Clinton in two thousand sixteen. So this is a real bellwether because it's a Romney Clinton district and Democrats are doing very well with those Romney Clinton voters. Let's bring it back to. Closer to home Virginia. Ten you have Representative Barbara Comstock Comstock was a Republican versus Jennifer waxed and talk a little bit about the challenges and some of the parallels. You might be saying this isn't even tougher district for Republicans to hold Comstock is a veteran Republican politicians been able to hold the northern Virginia suburbs. But this is an area not far from Washington DC were anti-trump sentiment is extremely high. And you also have a lot of government workers whenever President Trump attacks a federal government talks about the swamp is talking about federal employees in income stocks district. So she's been writing from behind pretty much us entire race. And there's been a lot of debate within Republican circles the congressional leadership fund superpac hasn't spent a dime and tried to help Barbara Comstock out and that money has been spent by the national Republican congressional committee who still believe they have an outside chance of winning this race. Why did she win considering the district in itself? Why did she win in the first place? What changed? Well, there are a lot of swing independent voters in this northern Virginia. District. I think in two thousand sixteen the assumption was Hillary Clinton was the favorite to win the presidency. So a lot of these swing voters wanted to check they wanted to balance with with a Republican member of congress now Republicans control all branches of government. And I think the desire for a check is helping her democratic opponent, Jennifer Weston. We'll see President Trump traveled to several states up until November election day in order to support candidates talk about his role in all this and the influence that he might have. And if there's evidence that he's having an influence, he's campaigning pretty aggressively. But he's staying in the more conservative sort of small town rural elements of the country. So for example, was in Topeka Kansas Saturday night for a rally Kevin Yoder, by the way, wasn't there. He didn't want to have a Trump shout out at that rally because he knows Trump isn't popular in his district. But in the more small town rural elements of the country. And then frankly, these big Senate battlegrounds that are taking place in conservative states, North Dakota, Missouri, Indiana. Hannah montana. You're gonna see a lot of President Trump. And that's where Republican officials. That's where the White House wants to position it. Josh cross our is with us. He's with national journal covers these elections that we've been talking about services, their political editor and the first call from you comes from California. This is on our line. Democrats Democrats Stephanie Hello, go ahead. Good morning. Fan. I believe that the Republican bump is a temporary. We though the cavenaugh. I believe that the Democrats are gonna come out like like it was the presidential year because we do have to stand up that we do need to put a check on this president. And it's a lot going on that we don't agree with that. Everyone's scared, and there's Republicans that want us to come out and win. So I believe all of this hoopla about the Republicans are closed this bad the other. I don't believe that they're going to maintain control of the house. And I and I do believe that the Senate is going to change as well. I think that the the electoral college is put Trumpian and as a result, we got Cavanaugh. But I I do believe that the Democrats are Dennis step up to the plate. And because we.
