"We are in Washington for coverage of the midterm elections. And one of the key states in those midterm elections will be Pennsylvania without a doubt. We have our colleague Kelly Lynch who is covering the election from Philadelphia. So Kaley, thank you so much for being there and for joining us today. Give us your view right now. What you're learning in Pennsylvania is particularly I guess about the Senate race because that's the one everyone's focused on. Yeah, everyone is watching that Senate race because it could be crucial in deciding the ultimate balance and David the race right now is literally neck and neck definition of a toss up the 5 38 aggregate polling average right now shows John fetterman, the democratic candidate, current lieutenant governor, literally tied with TV personality, Republican candidate doctor mehmet Oz at 47%. So this is a neck and neck race. What is interesting is it hasn't always been this way at one point over the summer, fetterman had a double digit lead over eyes, but we have seen that evaporate entirely over the last several weeks. Part of that has to do with what we are seeing nationally momentum shifting toward Republican candidates as we've drawn closer to election day, but part of it as well is about the candidate betterman himself. There was a single televised debate on October 25th, so about two weeks ago that show he has really still struggling from the effects of a stroke he suffered back in May just days before winning the democratic primary. He had to use auditory processing assistance in order to get through the debate. It was a very halting delivery in some cases and that has raised questions about his fitness for office as well as transparency issues considering his campaign has not released his full medical record. So that is one of the contributing factors in the tightening we have seen, to underscore how important this race is, I would note that over the weekend, we saw presidents 44 45 and 46 all here in Pennsylvania to stump for the candidates of their respective party. So all eyes will be here, what I will say though, David, is I can't say with any certainty that Tuesday night or even Wednesday morning I'll be standing here telling you that we have an end result. This is a state where they can't count mail in ballots until 7 a.m. on election day. So seat officials have warned it could be days before we get a final result, David. But the good news is you will be standing there because you're covering for us in Pennsylvania. Thank you so much to Bloomberg news is Kaylee Lyon. She'll be with us including tomorrow evening for all the coverage from Pennsylvania. It means I want to go to another key state this maternal election. And that is the state of Georgia. There's been an awful lot of drama in Georgia elections in recent years. And we turn now to be win. She is the democratic candidate for Secretary of State of Georgia. So this is when thank you so much for being with us. First of all, I'll address that how people are going to vote in Georgia are voting already in early voting because there have been some changes in the laws as I understand it. Yeah, so Georgians have been turning out in voting early in voting in person for the last three weeks. There was a massive concerted effort to inform Georgians of the changes in law, which now make it harder to vote by mail. And so organizers on the ground as well as candidates really encourage voters to exercise their right to vote during the early voting period, which just ended this Friday. And so we are seeing a reduction in use of absentee ballots in an increase in turnout on the early voting in person side of the election. So just to that point, there was a lot of concern that would be essentially what this called voter suppression. You'd have fewer people voting. Are you seeing evidence of that or is it they're voting in a different way? Voters are having to change their vote or behavior and a lot of work was done to make sure that Georgians understand the changing laws and what that looks like for them. But we are seeing some of the challenges on the ground, including voters who have had their voting eligibility challenge. There were at least 65,000 Georgians who had their eligibility challenge due to a change in the law that opens the door for unlimited voter challenges. And up until last week, voters were still trying to figure out how to cast their ballots to the when they were being challenged as they were showing up to the precinct and learning for the first time that somebody had challenged their eligibility. And then this weekend, we learned that there were a thousand voters in Cobb county who applied to vote by mail and their absentee ballots were never sent out. And so there is a last minute scramble to contact these voters, educate them, let them know that if they are in the state of Georgia, you can show up on Tuesday in person. You sign an affidavit to let your coworker know you never received your absentee ballot. What's more complicated are the voters who are not physically present in Georgia who can not return home to vote in person on Tuesday. There has been litigation filed at this current juncture in the ask is to treat these voters the same way that we treat our military overseas voters. They actually have until Monday to return their ballots, but these cod county voters who didn't receive their ballots who are not military overseas voters who are not physically in Georgia were still trying to figure out how to help those voters. So a lot of us have paid more attention, we thought we might end up to the process in Georgia going back to the last Senate election. And also, by the way, the presidential election, because there was a lot of context for that. At the same time, your opponent Brad Rasmussen burger actually, as I understand, it stood tall and resisted president Trump's attempt to try to change the vote. Does that make it harder to run against him because actually he took the high road? Yeah, you know, it's a condition in Georgia where many people know Brad raffensperger as the person who chose not to find those extra 11,780 votes and he followed the law. But what most voters have yet to learn about him and are currently learning about him is that he has backed this 98 page voter suppression Bill. And he also has extreme policies that he has embraced in the past during his time as a lawmaker, including introducing a personhood bill that would have outlawed all abortions in all basic forms of contraception. And so as we are talking to voters on the ground and they learn more about his record in about his support for this voter suppression law that is predicated on many of the lives and conspiracy theory theories that have been amplified by Trump and his legal team, then voters are understanding that there is a better choice here as somebody like me who is willing to follow the law, but also believe in expanding access to the ballot box, not restricting. Yeah, I guess my question is this. Do voters care enough about that issue that might split their ticket because it looks right now according to the polling like the Republican incumbent will win as governor. So they'd have to split their ticket. Do they care enough about it to say, I'm going to split my ticket and vote a different way for Secretary of State than from governor. I certainly think that Georgians are all over the map in terms of who they're choosing to vote for. It is not appear that there is a straight Republican democratic line across the board for any of these races. And it is very hard to understand what might happen tomorrow. And so our job is to continue to talk to Georgians, continue to mobilize people to go out and show up tomorrow on Tuesday. I think all of these elections will be closer than what we might anticipate. I think that there are high probabilities that between now and tomorrow, there are a lot of voters who have not decided if they're not going to show up. They're going to show up on election day. And so our job is to make sure that we keep talking to voters, keep telling voters that nobody knows what is going to happen tomorrow and that between now and the close of the polls on election day tomorrow we still have opportunities to make sure that we can elect Democrats up and down the ballot. One thing is for sure, nobody knows. Certainly, I don't know what's going to happen tomorrow. But thank you so much for spending time. It's a busy time for you. Let's be win. She's a democratic candidate for Secretary of State in the state of Georgia. And we have reached out to her opponent Brad raffensperger to offer him to join us as

"That Sarah farris from Politico and from PBS NewsHour Lisa Desjardins thank you both for speaking with us Thanks for having us Mostly cloudy skies in Atlanta 55° our time is four 44 I'm Jim barris Thanks for listening Governor Brian Kemp is about to turn up the heat on efforts to make it legal for gun owners to carry firearms without a permit known as constitutional carry Can voice his support for the legislative shift during a campaign event today at a cod county gun store W AE's Lisa Hagan is with us for some context about the announcement Lisa explained for us what is constitutional carry Constitutional care is sort of the branded way of talking about getting rid of the requirements for a gun permit to carry concealed in the state So in Georgia we've long had very broad rights with a gun permit to you know you can take your gun into church bars all over the place really And that was all done through the permitting system What this does is essentially frame the constitution of the United States itself the Second Amendment as being a blanket gun permit for everyone So there's no longer any kind of requirements that the government know anything about who is carrying a gun in the state This would not absolve say someone from if they had a felony on their record for example that had not been expunged this would not give them free reign to carry a firearm Correct No absolutely not This is for people who are able to legally own guns only However there's really no way for law enforcement to check on that because you're not allowed to ask currently if someone has a gun permit And in this case there wouldn't be any need to ask for a permit ever This has been a bill some gun rights activists have been pushing for unsuccessfully for years now quite today Why are we hearing about this now I think it has a great deal to do with the elections And the challenge governor camp is facing from David perdue When Kemp originally ran for governor he signaled his support for constitutional carry fairly quietly And he's waited till now to actually run a big presser and make this large announcement So it should really signal a step further to the right than Georgia achieved even with the infamous gun everywhere bill signed in the law in 2014 Georgia would become the 22nd state as I understand to pass a constitutional carry style law Talk about how this is gaining momentum across the nation Yeah this has been a movement sweeping the country for the last decade or so And it is further to the right of the NRA and it was interesting we saw governor Kemp thank the NRA for their support on this But they've actually had very little to do with this wave of pushing constitutional carry and getting rid of the permitting requirements for guns in many many states What has been behind it is a particular set of gun rights activists who work very closely also with anti vax activists and anti abortion rights to name a few This is what I spent the last two years investigating Will this come through clean As some people might say or are we likely to see amendments and riders and this morph into something else It'll depend on what kind of pressure probably we hear from David perdue and this particular set of gun rights activists that I mentioned Whatever it does end up with though it's fairly likely to pass with the governor's support WA bee's Lisa Hagen Lisa thank you so much for breaking this down for us We appreciate it Thank you Jim And.
