A Coworking Community of First Believers
"Get started. I'll ask you an about launch pad. You and chris co founders of launchpad. What is that exactly so launch pad is a network co working spaces really focused on smaller communities what we call them into markets throughout the united states. And we're located in nashville newark. New jersey stockton california new orleans. And we're coming to many other cities like mesa arizona and louisville kentucky. So we've really focused on becoming part of the entrepreneurial community and acting as a home base for entrepreneurs of all kinds. So i'm going to ask you about your locations in a bit but i wanted to ask you about your unique value proposition. I mean you're playing in a growing space. What defines launch pad among all other players in the space i think the biggest factor is an alignment with the success of our members. We really focus on people who are working on cnn. Really is the way that we define our marketing so that's much more expansive than just people starting a startup right. There's a lot of people who are working entrepreneurial league whether you are starting to start up a small business freelancer even working remotely. The nature of work is changing so much and we really focus on helping her members be successful in whatever their goals and aspirations are a lot of people are new to this and we believe that diversity of member shall ross. The types of businesses in diversity on level is so important so the lot of factors that set launch pad art and. I'm sure we'll we'll talk a little bit about sort of the ups and downs of the co working world today in the in the on gas. But we've been around for ten years and have really focused on the growing success of ecosystems that we play a part in that starts with helping the members that work at launch pad really achieved their roles. So when when i was doing my research a term popped out of the text and that was first believers. What does that mean. And why is it so important at launch pad. They mainly sat down and belts sort of the core values with business and or operating communities that we serve. I believe i one that always talks up and crystals. Everyone's firstly a ride often on journey. You hear the words know whether that from an investor whether it's from your mother whether it's from your little that little guilty had You're telling you that it's not gonna work and what you really need levers and so me think of that as sing the level within lunchtime and oftentimes those folks were working in the community. They are each other's levers members to show every day. They're the ones you hear the saab sorting things go wrong. Who celebrate the for sale. Who ring the bell with you. And you create this environment where we're all sort of on this entrepreneurial jury ourselves and help each other and we consciously about it every day about being people's first lemurs and we do that in righty one. It's the cities that we choose so we often go to places that maybe be overlooked by big providers or big big Operators in our space and we take bets on the city's because we really believe in supporting them supporting their entrepreneurs and we also believe that being i believe her is not just about writing a check. It's also being someone's purse customer so we try actively to support our businesses within launchpad by not only being their mentor their friends but to be their customer many years ago before i even started executive recruiting. I tried my hand at starting a new suspect on intellectual property. I spent a lot of money. I wrote a patent got a patent issue and then i tried becoming operational as a startup and was so soul-crushing and yes i got told no every day i never heard yes and i was like how can i put up with this so i can see the value in doing that. You know it's so true. I it's the journey of any entrepreneurial venture hearing no all day long in whatever role you are and it's also the internal journey right. I think the first believers concept is really the antidote to imposter syndrome. rain holds us back is am. I truly the ceo of this company. Am i truly hanging my big corporate job in stepping out to follow my passion project and so by being a community of first believers has not just us founders that that believe in our members radium culture where people believe in each other and push each other and support each other along that journey wondering if you could give me a sense of how that gets flushed out. So i'm a startup entrepreneur. I set up shop at launch. What can i experience at launch pad. That's going to help me flush out my business model in my path to success. Oftentimes the process starts before you become a member and typically what we see a lot of the journeys especially for startup founders. Is they'll connect with one of us or another member of our community around something as simple as pitch practice or a mentor session. Or hey i'm looking to raise money. Can i tap into your network to connect with others and get some funding. You know they always say if you ask for money you'll get good advice and we have that conversation with us. Start to be able to demonstrate the power of the network the power of the platform and power those connections and oftentimes some of the way we recruit startups into launchpad is through those very first early conversations. Once they join the community we have an on boarding process for folks where we connect people. It's starting out. A co working. Space is a little bit starting your first day at school or your first day at your job and we approach that very similarly by creating programs and connection points doing a little member matchmaking. So that folks who have like minded challenges or personalities or different types of businesses. We can connect them. And so we're really sort of smooth the path of on boarding in the community and then we have a variety of different programming and curriculum and supportive activities that happen throughout the year to be able to support entrepreneurs obviously dumb one some group sessions but we really sort of enable the platform to basically support it. And what we end up seeing these collisions of connection moments where people come together and they find their technical co founder amongst our member base or they find their first customer if they're hanging their shingle to be a consultant. Every time we do surveys of our member base about the benefits of being at launchpad we consistently hear that it helps them do more business. It helps them be more professional helps them achieve more their goals. That's fabulous so you take a lot of the sting out of being a startup entrepreneur with dimension. We also are sort of on converts so we understand deeply the challenges that we all face. And i mean i think especially in a year like we've had with the pandemic with twenty twenty struggled ourselves as as many businesses and i think it's been really valuable for us to be able to share those struggles in to go through that together with our members. We wake up every day. Thinking about launch pad are members. Were not a big corporation. We don't wanna be. And i think that really comes through in terms of the connection points that we can make with entrepreneurs are our

"Arrest them. You know, I mean, it's a federal crime. And he has he by the way established in he wrote a law, which was adopted by many states, but only implemented in Kansas state that you would have to prove your citizen to vote now at first is it. Well, yeah, he should be citizens vote. We're not red China, Pat. We don't have citizenship cards nor could chips in our brains yet. So you need the only documents that you can use our a passport, which is kind of a rich white travel document or an original original I want to say that birth certificate. The result was that in Kansas. He knocked out thirty six thousand voters mostly students that is another words Democrats and some officers at the local air force base. Remember membership in the military is not proof of citizenship. So he knocked off air force officers, and he knocked off students and he admitted that not to a federal court. He admitted not one not one of the people who stopped from voting because they couldn't prove their citizen way. Check not one was an alien. Everyone was an American citizen who lost the right to vote. Not only. Did he lose that case? But he was found in contempt of court. Here's the danger contempt of the federal district court. If he becomes immigrations are watch for a move to require citizenship proof, and he gets to take it to the Roberts cavenaugh court lookout. I know exactly anytime it's going to go to the Roberts cavenaugh court. We have to look out these days. It is. Absolutely frightening. Greg this article that you wrote it's headline Trump may name Chris co Bach. New immigrations are the real agenda twenty twenty vote suppression where can people find this article? So they can read it for themselves to places go to Greg palace dot com. Continuing six year investigation of crisco Bach. Greg palace dot com or today in nation of change. Do you think Greg that he has a real shot at at surviving this appointment? I mean, this isn't one this one doesn't have to be approved. Does it? That's right. He can't get confirmed by the Senate. So they created a position which is more powerful than homeland security because it's. Over homeland security, and he doesn't have to be confirmed by the Senate he could never get confirmed, even by Republicans. But that's but Trump has been in love with this guy. Mary puts him in charge of of the of the collapsed vote fraud commission. Right. He's been looking for a job for Chris co Bach constantly, even though his is all staff his has Knicks just so, you know, his own staff. I know that even Flynn nixed. Co Bach for a job in the federal government, but he is very personally close to Donald Trump. And frankly, he had a lot to do with ceiling enough votes for Trump to become president. And that's what they're looking for for twenty twenty because they're afraid they can't win legitimately. And so voter suppression rears its ugly head again. And then we also know that the Russians are going to be involved in the election as well. So it's like twenty sixteen repeat except they're all better at their game than they were in two thousand sixteen. Hey, greg. It was great to talk with you. Let's do it again soon. Absolutely.

"And so you know, it they didn't get it in time for the midterms. But they got it. Sometimes when you fight you win sometimes when you are fighting in an environment that seems absolutely unforgiving an impossible. Sometimes the environment changes around you, and it allows you to win one of the places that democrat Laura Kelly campaign for governor when she was on her way to winning the state house, one of the places she campaigned was in dodge city what she campaigned on their improving voters access to the pulse. Well, now voters access to the polls is improved in dodge city, and she's in charge of state government and crisco back is unemployed. But again ground truth in dodge city this next time you will no longer have to leave town devote like you did before. I mean, there's still there's still a couple of things to watch. Here. The case was dismissed without prejudice. Which means that case can come back to life pretty much instantly. If the plaintiffs come to believe that they need to do that in order to hold the county and hold the state to account right to make sure that Hispanic voters are getting equal treatment in that town and in Kansas. It can come back. That's what dismissing it without prejudice means. And if you think about it, it is still a little bit nuts that for thirteen thousand voters. There's only two plan to polling places in dodge city. But it's better. I mean, at least two polling places is to more than what they had which is zero. So it's not like that fight is permanently over, but they did win what they were trying to get a win is a win for one hundred and for the and for the voters in that town who are not gonna take it lying down. And it does show you that things change even in places where it seems like they cannot ever change things change. Kansas voted for Trump. I twenty points two years later. They voted for Laura Kelly to become the democratic governor of that state that same night that Laura Kelly became the democratic governor of Kansas. That's the same night. Of course that Democrats won control of the house of representatives in Washington. And over these last few days, we have started to see the substance of what that is going to mean in terms of how your federal government works how congress works how it spends its time. What it works on the first Bill of the Democrats brought up and held hearings on is what they call HR one. It's a big omnibus Bill on voting rights and anti-corruption measures. This is legislation that sorta hits all the high points on small d democratic reform. It would stop a partisan gerrymandering for congressional districts. So instead of having state legislatures draw the congressional districts to maximally benefit their own party. Instead, it would be independent nonpartisan redistricting in every state. So you don't have all these guaranteed Republican seats or guaranteed democratic seats, and it would be all across the country. It would make election day a federal holiday, so nobody has to skip voting because they can't get time off work to do it. It would guarantee early voting days for every federal election in every state in the country right now some states offer early. Devoting? Some don't it would established nationwide voter registration where you have the opportunity to opt out if you don't want to be registered. But otherwise, you're registered it would stop states from dumping registered voters off their roles in purges, like the ones that are advocated nationwide by Chris co back it would make the president and the supreme court subject to the same ethics and anticorruption rules as everybody else in government. Imagine that it would force dark money groups and super PACS to have to disclose their donors. So we'd have no more anonymous money flooding into election campaigns. When when the Democrats I introduced this legislation you always pick something to be HR one right to show. This is our first priority. This is what we want to be known for us. We take the gavel when the Democrats I put forward this legislation. I don't think the Republicans worried too much about it or even thought too much about it at first when the Democrats held their first hearings on HR one this week and the Republican witnesses just got roasted and Republican members of congress had a very hard time..

"He'll get out of dodge Dodd city of gunsmoke fame dodge city is in southwest Kansas. They do still celebrate the old gunsmoke vibe. There is a gun fighters wax museum there in coincident with the Kansas teachers hall of fame, it's an awkward pairing. But you know, they both pay rent. These days dodge city's industrial base is meat packing. And that meatpacking industry has attracted a lot of Hispanic workers. And their families dodge City Kansas has now a majority minority town, it's majority Hispanic, and the reason we ended up spending some time there before the midterm elections. This past year is because Republican elected officials in red state Kansas made some striking decisions when it came to voting in dodge city, which is the largest majority minority community in that entire state. When Laura Kelly the democrat was running for governor in Kansas this past November the Republican candidate. She was up against was named Chris co back. He's known nationally as someone of a national profile in part because he was the head of President Trump's sort of bogus and now disbanded voter fraud commission. Crisco Bach has also made somewhat of a national name for himself in recent years. Trying to sell other states besides Kansas on policies that are designed to make it as hard as possible for likely democratic voters to cast their vote and get it counted. But while he was running for Kansas governor this past November. He was simultaneously serving as the secretary of state in Kansas as the top elections official in that state and under his leadership. It was decided that dodge city, the largest majority minority town in the whole state. It was decided that they would be relieved of their one voting place there. One polling location. There's like thirteen thousand ish registered voters dodge city. They were already in pretty bad shape. In terms of access to the polls before this past election for those thirteen thousand voters there was precisely one voting place in all of dodge city before this last election, but then for the midterms for the November elections in which Chris Kovac was going to be a top of the ballot is the Republican candidate for governor for the midterms. Republican officials in Kansas decided that that one polling place in dodge city was one polling place too many. And so that polling place would be shut they said it was because construction was going to make that one polling place in dodge city inaccessible, so they closed that one voting place for the whole town and instead opened up another one way outside the city limits..

"Because that was the next thing I was going to bring up because you you you pointed out Chris co Bach and all the the the heinous things he's been doing. And and I do think that you had a lot to do with him being defeated. The scary thing is my job is not just so, you know, my job is that I was just in Wichita, and I'm sure that a co Bach has, you know, targets of me on his wall and starts out or he's I guess he has an automatic but weapon automatic rifle. So he's probably blowing me a little bit an effigy. But the yes, so my job is not to electron elect politics. My job is exposed hall, Titians and officials who steal votes, and and help get those votes counted. So what happens by exposing co Bach and vote thieving ways when he turned it on Republicans. And I even said I wasn't sympathetic to the Republican governor the sitting governor he turned he still the rates from his own Republican sitting governor. By refusing to count. Three thousand or one thousand absentee ballots in from the governor's the strong areas in Kansas City and also not counting three thousand provisional ballots from the governor's area, and so and then co Bach declared himself winner by three hundred votes, the primary the result was that several top Republicans endorsed, I've is a democrat. Can you imagine sitting Republican officials? I mean, not small either major Republican officials endorsed the democrat. And or they endorsed Greg Orman, the independent he's kind of a I've just hey Bernie crap, but he's an independent, but he was Bernie Sanders lead man in Kansas, but he's an independent democrat. And so you had him pulling votes from Republicans who are disgusted with co Bach. But wouldn't vote democratic that was critical to the democratic win. But it's all about exposure in Arman talk. Again, and again, and again about my findings now again, I'm not, you know, we'd Chris co Bach. My job is to remove him from office. My job is to make sure you stop stealing votes, or maybe that's the way too. But that's how the voters decide to to stop his thieving ways. But here's my here's my a dire and prediction which God God help the nation. If it happens or attorney General Chris co back is as a Turney. That same this amount of right wing pressure. They came attorney Jim I had the same thought. And when I brought it up the day that he lost or the day. When a Jeff Sessions was shown the door people going. No, he wouldn't do that. Yeah.

"chris co" Discussed on Why Is This Happening? with Chris Hayes
"The fact that states get representation in congress on the basis of undocumented immigrants. He gets a phone call from Steve Bannon who's then the chief political advisor to Trump in the White House who directs him to have a conversation with Chris co Bach. The secretary of state of Kansas who's a notorious anti immigrant sell it, and they push both the department of Justice. And the department of homeland security to request a citizenship question on the census by may. He's already writing angry emails to his staff may of two thousand seventeen of his seven months before the DOJ requests, he already writing angry emails to his staff. I don't understand mystified. That's the word you use. I missed the fide. Why nothing has been done on my months old request to add a citizenship question. And his deputy chief of staff says we'll get that in place in response to that. And that's in may of two thousand seventeen there's a paper trail of all this. These are all emails that you have litigation. Yes. Just smoking gun stuff. They go in and they're like we're pissed off that all those undocumented out. There are getting counted in the census, and it's giving them political power. And we don't like that. And we want to get rid of that even though let's be clear. The supreme court says that's the way it works. Right. I mean, the correct the constitution says this is what the constitution says because it says person's right? So they don't like the constitution. Yeah. They're pissed off about the constitution. And they're pissed off about the. Distributional impacts of that. And they start scheming, right? Which is what you have the evidence of. That's right. And then basically they set up like an alley oop between the department of Justice and commerce for like the department of Justice like sends this letter like a pass up in the air. So that will roskin like come flying out of nowhere and dunk. That's right. And what what's amazing is. So they ask for that pass first time they ask for the department of Justice in the summer of two thousand seventeen says, no, actually, we're not interested in doing that. And this just infuriates Ross and his staff even more. And so there's another flurry of emails around Labor Day of two thousand seventeen Ross has a conversation with attorney general sessions, and then the wheels really start moving that's the point at which the civil rights division at the department of Justice gets involved in they start drafting this letter that supposedly lays out the purported need for this data for VR enforcement purposes. So when you have so the paper trail here shows, lying and it shows. Bad faith, and it shows values that are an article to what is in the plain text the constitution. Yeah. But why can't they do it on what legal grounds? Are you suing them about doing this onto legal grounds? The first is that it's incision. That's undertaken with discriminatory. Intent right. The government can do lots of things for lots of different reasons. But if you do something that otherwise might be okay. But you do it with the intent to harm people on the basis of their race or national origin that's unconstitutional. So that's one of our arguments. And I want to stop you there because this has actually been a recurring theme of the Trump administration. I mean, the Muslim ban is a great example or the travel ban is almost certainly within the purview of the president's executive authority on them Gration..

And I think that's probably the most accurately you can describe him. I don't think there is really an objective way to look at Kovacs career. Not see him as someone who has done everything in his power to make sure that people have colored can't vote. It's it's. So obvious. I'm kind of curious about why he would deny that. I mean, it seems to be a thing. He takes a lot of pride in. I think Jeffrey Toobin was a thousand percent, right. And I'm I'm so glad that he he called him on on on that publicly because that's that's what co- bags career is. That is his thing. We all know it I'm eating you can look at everything from, you know, all of the policies that put into place at Ari talked about to your everything in the news right now about taking the polling place out of dodge city. You know, it's just that's coke is I so it's it's I was kind of chuckling that he would try to deny that. That's who he is imagine where I wonder cat. We're to you is the line between appropriate voter regulation and voter suppression voter restriction. Like there must be some place for reasonable rules about who gets to vote and how you get registered and how you get a ballot at the polls or palate in your mailbox. Where's that line for you? I I think. That it's we can look at with each -regulation. What is it doing? Right. So so is this regulation that win? It is put into place largely prevents certain demographics of people from voting. Right. I'm or is this regulation that when it's put in place is something that is, you know, reasonable given the facts in the research and the data, and that's the vast majority of Americans who are trying to vote are able to comply with and so if you look at, you know, voter ID laws, and you see that the vast majority of people who are affected by those laws are people of color people with low incomes, the elderly. Our young people are all people who tend to vote a certain way, then that is pretty clearly a law that is being an and as I said on the other end of that. And there's no evidence that there's a crime that's being committed on such a regular basis that that laws needed. Then that's probably a law. That's putting being put in place to be suppressive. I'm you know, as opposed to looking at the problems, we really do have in this country like how difficult it is for people to vote. And so we can look at automatic voter registration, which is now has been passed in twelve states and the district of Columbia, which makes it easier for people to register to vote because it makes it an opt out instead of an opt in and actually makes it more secure and more likely that the information that's being sent to the board of elections. The secretary of state's office is accurate because government agencies are imagine this in two thousand eighteen sending information electronically. And so those are the kinds of things that are actually addressing a problem. We have in this country, which is voter access the ability to register and doing so in a way that makes it more secure..

"The only person who appears to have really benefited from this. This is Chris Kobe. We have traced back all of the money that these cities directly paid Chris Khobar as low as a lawyer. So over a decade, we know that he made at least eight hundred thousand dollars. So if you think now about you know, that strategy earlier to what's happening in the United States right now, what is what is the larger narrative that you see that's at play here in this moment in United States when we have Donald Trump in the White House and directing kind of particular perspective on policies regarding immigration. You know, I I think that prior to Trump getting elected and prior to Trump being as hard line on immigration as he has been it was really easy to dismiss people like Chris co Bach. But now does elements of the Republican party are leading the country, and he has a much more impactful voice than he. Otherwise would. I think that we can learn from what he has told us he believes in. In. And now that he is potentially going to become governor of the state of Kansas, which will put him on an even higher platform. And he has as he has said multiple times during the course of the campaign a direct line to the president of the United States who listens to him. I think that that's really concerning for a lot of people. I think that it is a sign that radical elements of our country have sort of taken a much larger role, and we can no longer dismiss them.

"chris co" Discussed on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah: Ears Edition
"The numbers in the twenty sixteen election, especially in and around the black vote. Really interesting you. You saw in key states in swing states where voter turnout dropped from may have been like seventy eight thousand people turning out, dropped to below. Fifty thousand. You know, you saw drastic drums. Now some people have argued that that was because Hillary Clinton did motivates black voters to come out. But you've looked at the data. You've analyzed a lot of the information and it seems like there's been a systematic efforts to remove people of color from the voting rolls for why? Why people of color them. And I believe why people have color besides being just snide and saying, it's been that way for a long time. It's because that after the two thousand eight election with Barack Obama, Barack Obama brought fifteen million new voters to the polls with that incredible ground game, they were overwhelmingly black, Latino young, poor, and, and with that, then the. Republican party that has moved further and further to the right and has become more and more white in their policies have become more right wing, they, they don't have policies that resonate with the growing diversity of America. Right. And so instead of thinking about how do we reform this party so that it, it resonates with America that our policies are really strong and talk about benefiting more Americans instead what they decided to do to suppress the vote. There are some. There's some really scary parts of the book where I, I read about things. I never knew before I knew about the larger picture, voter suppression in certain states and certain places. But you read about how so many people have been stripped of their rights. Now, the argument the other way from people like Chris co Bach, you know, from Donald Trump and his team has been, we have protecting democracy. That's why we scrub people votes roles if they've died, if they no longer respond to male than why are we keeping keeping them on the votes? How do you respond to that? Respond to that because one of the ways that this works in Silla -ffective is that they're able to use that cover of being reasonable in. We're just keeping the voter rolls up. But when you really look at what they're doing is that those the people that they're scrubbing, they're not scrubbing people who have moved or who have died. Overwhelmingly, overwhelmingly who they're scrubbing are people who are African Americans. People who are young people who are poor and they're doing it by the characteristics. So the can't say we don't want black people to vote because they're still this thing called the fifteenth amendment. Although the Voting Rights Act gutted by the supreme court, there still this thing called the fifteenth amendment. So what they do is they go after the characteristics of people, society imposed characteristics. They go after those things, like if you move a lot and we know that people move a lot, particularly if you're poor, you don't stay in the same house. Writes that moving then becomes a reason to to knock people off the rolls. They say one of the things that we also know characteristics that young people minorities, they don't students. They don't vote regularly. So they started knocking people off the rolls for not voting regularly, and so they use those characteristics and those are the characteristics of people who don't overwhelmingly vote for Republicans. Yeah. When you, when you look at the the numbers and you look at how impactful this could actually be arguments is always met with, yes, but look at how much voter fraud there is. Now we talked briefly about this, but overwhelmingly, most Americans believe that voter fraud is a very definite threat. Absolutely. And that has been a well cultivated myth. It has born. It was born up out of the two thousand election that horrible election with hanging chads, right? And that myth of massive rampant voter fraud coming out of the cities, stealing our. Elections except when they really went haunting for it. They couldn't find it. Justin Levin law professor out of California. He looked and he went from two thousand two thousand fourteen out of one billion votes. He was able to identify thirty one cases, thirty one out of one billion vote of voter impersonation fraud when Chris co Bach, the secretary of state that you mentioned who help had Trump's election in aggregate in their report, which was all about when Trump said, five million voters have come in and I would've won the popular vote a separate Trump by the way. Thank you..

"Sort of the last round of primaries here, Minnesota, Connecticut, Wisconsin, Vermont, all setting up so competitive races for governor, Senate and house seats in November. And let's start with a couple of notable governors races, former Minnesota Republican governor, and one time promising presidential candidate, Tim plenty got trounced in his bid to return to politics and the GOP nomination for governor in Minnesota. Now, Poletti was a moderate establishment a critic of Donald Trump at one time, but Jeff Johnson won this Dominica. What does this say about where the GOP is at it? I mean, I think it says, obviously that Minnesota politics have changed a lot. But so as the Republican party underlying that President Trump lost Minnesota by less than two percentage points. And Jeff Johnson is somebody who has now embraced President Trump, Tim Palencia said that Trump was unfit to be president. He's somebody who's been out of Minnesota, frankly, for a few years. He served two terms and in the seven years since he's left office, the Republican party has definitely gone through a transformation and has been taken over by President Trump, but it's more than that, isn't it? I mean, Minnesota is famous for nice, Donald Trump for whatever his attributes is not nice, and yet embracing Donald Trump seems to be success in a primary. Well, I'm not going to get into the cultures of states in the places because they're known for air proud of it in their politics is my play. They are, but I think that there's a difference in what's happened with our politics generally more nationally. I think a lot of our politics have moved away from being local and have moved more national. And if you're wearing the t shirt. Sort of the party, you'd better sound look and talk like the national party. That's a big change that's happened over the last ten fifteen years. Let's move to Kansas just for a moment because governor Jeff Collier lost his own party's nomination to secretary of state, Chris co back a Wendy remind us who crisco back is and what this says about the direction of the Republican party well, star with the direction of the Republican party. I think that even though guys like corker and McCain and other never Trumpers in the Republican party get a lot of airtime. I think the base those who vote in the primaries are still feeling that a Trump endorsement and being nice to Trump is what will get you ahead and we've clearly saw that on Tuesday. Chris co, Bach was the guy who ran Trump's election commission when he talked about the millions of fraudulent votes. And the thing was shut down to sort of collapsed under its own weight, but co BAC as the McClatchy, Kansas City star and propublica reported. Reasonably. He also made a career for a while of going around to small towns as lawyer and offering his services for.

"One week after a primary night cliffhanger we have an answer Jeff Collier, the incumbent Republican governor of Kansas has now conceded the GOP primary to the Kansas secretary of state and Trump ally. Chris co, Bach Collier announced his decision after review of provisional ballots left him unable to overcome a one hundred ten vote deficit. Kobuk will now face the democrat, Laura Kelly in the midterm election eighty four days from now. Meanwhile, we're watching the latest results coming in on this primary night and selected states across the country voters in Vermont, Connecticut, Minnesota, Wisconsin, all headed to the polls today here to break it down armand's Steve Kornacki, national political correspondent at the big board, Steve tickets from a tour from prairie home to New England. It's interesting. We got to the stage setting for November a lot of that tonight, but also a surprise tonight, at least one big one and the results. And let me start with that. It's in the. State of Minnesota. It's a name. We all remember Tim plenty. He was the two term governor of Minnesota. He ran for president on the Republican side in twenty twelve that didn't work out. He decided to make a comeback attempt in Minnesota in the Republican primary for governor tonight. But he is going down to defeat this the big surprise of the night, Jeff Johnson. He tried to get sort of two polenta is right in this. Primary Johnson had been the Republican candidate for governor in Minnesota, four years ago in twenty fourteen, he lost by six points. He ran again, looks like he's going to knock off Tim. Plenty in interesting dynamic in this race that I think says a lot about the state of the Republican party in the Trump era back in two thousand sixteen when Donald Trump came on the scene, neither of these men seem to be much of a fan of temple empty called him unhinged an unqualified, Jeff Johnson said, if Trump something, I don't think I can repeat here. They had a debate. The subject came up in two thousand eighteen. They both debated over who meant that less. So they certain. Changed their tune on that? It looks like Johnson will be the Republican nominee who will he face off against in Minnesota. This an interesting development is well, Tim walls, democratic congressman from the southern part of the state. Looks like he's going to get through this primary walls. The thought had been maybe a little too conservative on some issues, especially guns. He represents a district with a lot of rural areas. They're in the southern part of the state. Also something we've been seeing democratic primaries around the country. This year female candidates had been doing really well and democratic. Primaries you add up the the vote for the two leading female candidates here. You're over fifty percent, but maybe it wasn't a little split up here. Did that help Tim loss as well, but it looks like it'll be Tim walls, Jeff Johnson in that gubernatorial race, not Tim. Polenta is people were expecting the other headline race from Minnesota was the race for attorney general, Keith Ellison, congressman leader with the Democratic National Committee. He got hit with those last minute, accusations of domestic violence. Now he's gonna win this primary. He's going to win it comfortably. There was also a lot of early voting. He probably benefited from that, but this is a very comfortable margin, but this is a situation with that domestic violence accusation. This is a big what, if hanging over this race in the fall, what if we find out more? What if there is more to this story, the DNC said, late this afternoon that they are looking into the allegations against him. So maybe to be continued on that front..

"But I think what we're seeing is because there's a lot of suburban precincts in this district to that the Republicans, I, they're not appealing as much to suburban people as they may have like when in two thousand sixteen when people just like whatever anyone, but Hillary now they're like, oh, fuck. Maybe this is not good rate. Anything. A lot of women have especially would who had voted for Trump are starting to look at like his presidency and Bielecki ad. They, they don't. They don't want to be near this. Have they found like has polling found actual shifts because I, my assumption was always that it was just young people who didn't vote, kind of coming out and starting to vote. Now because of how horrifying the whole Trump thing is. But are they seeing that people who did vote for Trump are now going back to Democrats while I mean, I think just by when you look at the numbers that are in the people that are available clearly from that university voters there, somehow more people are skewing to the democrat. So I think just by virtue of the result, people are kind of being like, I prefer this candidate and now bald arson is that his nephew, he the, the Republican candidate. I mean, we've seen some special elections even one in Alabama where the Republican vastly underperformed did balder Sohn have any like horrifying things like picking up on twelve year old girls at the mall. I mean, he's like a, you know, he's a Trumpy dude. I've at thi Trump came through at the last minute in threw his weight behind him. So that helped to a certain extent. But I think Dana O'Connor, his sort of platform was just more calm like he was just like, let's address the issues like literally in Ohio. Yes, I'm a democrat, but you also stayed away from bashing Trump which is which is sort of like what Connor lamb did in Pennsylvania. Like a lot of these people who've been in really solidly Republican districts, they try and if they're Democrats, they don't want to jump on the beat, the Trump, you know, till it's dead band. Like, you know, they don't. They, that's just not rhetorically what they need for their platform because it sort of turns off those voters, right. If they just sort of keep it issue based of like, yeah. What about your healthcare and things like that? People are much more open because people yet there is still a culture war being fought. And if you just manage to stay out of that stream than you're going to be in better shape than if you know, take a side in it, and then there was also a. A primary in Kansas where Chris co Bak won the gubernatorial primary for the Republicans. It hasn't totally been decided. Okay. So this is like the margin of victory for him is less than two hundred votes, and it was between him. So Chris co, Bach is like the same dude who like started that whole fake voter commission, which is just a circus just to try and like perpetuate these weird conspiracies about all these weird, you know, voting regularities. And what do you come up with on that thing? And he was like getting owned by judges who are like, like literally one judge when was arguing something court was like, you should go read a text book about like procedural law where you come back in here and like was just ran out on a rail, but he is the secretary of state for Kansas..
