"It's like holy crap dude you know Joe Kennedy is challenging your guy I mean this guy is young he's handsome. What Kennedy's faults and how are you going to go defend marquis? And walls looked at me and said, Joe Kennedy has no weaknesses. He's young. He's handsome. He's rich. He's a Kennedy and he's a nice guy. You know what his problem is and this election is going to be he's not add markey. And I thought it was sort of a great answer because it kind of. First of all, he gave me that answer without even hesitating but he had a lot of confidence that his guy could rise to the moment and that his job was just to ensure that voters really got to know Ed Markey and that was Markey's big deficit going into this race was a poll showed that a lot of people didn't know who he was in spite of the fact that he'd served so many years and I think what marquee managed to do in the course of this campaign was convinced will obviously he did it to commence enough people who he was and. And that's one of the reasons he won. In. Her Shell. I'm sorry I was just GonNa. Ask. That the resources to show him where witnesses are for him. Absolutely, I, agree that this campaign. In an opportunity to say this is so I am this is what I stand for and this is what we'll do. But if you look at the results Kennedy one in most of the gateway cities in places where Lynn Chelsea. Lowell Lawrence places where you have a lot of poverty. We have a lot of immigrants. We have a lot of pain right now because of the coronavirus pandemic and the economic struggles at that Rod. So I I think there's a lesson there for him to write that. You know maybe he needs to pay attention and I'm not saying he hasn't pay attention because he's been a leader in some on immigration. For instance, he has led on so many gration policy issues but I'd be curious as to how he approaches these places out going forward. And I think this assess job now Sorry exactly that you know he spoke about racial justice in places like Hyannis and Brookline and those places where he racked up and that's exactly where he should be talking about this stuff. I'm going to have to wrap us there, but I am going to look forward to having the three of you in conversation again because that was fun and interesting that was Marcela Garcia and editorial writer for the Boston.

"Had. A great greater book. To my committee and the response we got from college students high school students younger people was enormous when when she was a witness in front of my committee and. You know this an example of her galvanizing one of the three existential issues we have in front of us right now climate change. So, just to clarify for listeners that's a tune Berg that global environmental activists who? Has Been Global since teenage years as a young adult I? Sometimes because she pronounces the bread going Berry. I can't do it. She. As a person I. Really. Was very impressed with her and the young people that went at you know enjoying during that hearing including a conservative Republican. student as well. So it showed coming together in a generational understanding of just how serious the climate change issue isn't I think that was part of this campaign as well. I want to stay on young people for a minute because in this first Massachusetts primary in this pandemic many first-time voters, which you would assume many young voters are got to vote by mail, and in fact, Secretary Galvin September I said that we had received eight hundred, fifty, thousand mail in ballots. In this primary I know that this is something you've thought a lot about your. Services Postal? Carrier. Makes it sit home with you. Are you confident that the USPS is able to has handled what it could in the last twenty four hours and we'll be able to handle a mail in election in November but I think it's two different questions I think largely, they were able to handle this primary in Massachusetts currently. However. with the increase in voting this fall in November and. And what's happening to the postal service right now in terms of cutting back on overtime in terms of taking mail sorters that can just sort male tremendous rates of speed pulling back on some of the actual mail receptacles.

Kennedy Secretary of the Commonwealth Bill Galvin just. Recently. Announced in the last little bit of. That he's seeking court to authorise local election officials to continue counting a number of ballots in that race including Malan votes we will talk about that more later in the show, but let's focus right now on the night's biggest moments and the reason Kennedy's seat is open incumbent Senator Ed markey successfully fought off a challenge from Congressman Joe Kennedy. Speaking to reporters earlier today, there's an old saying in Massachusetts politics. that. It's great to have young people behind you, but they just don't vote. In Massachusetts. Well. We put that old saw to rest yesterday. Here for more is. Ours Anthony Brooks. Welcome Anthony. Heidi's Yana. So, let's jump right to it. Why did Marquee win? Well I mean I think he touched on a point they're talking about those young people they voted in big numbers yesterday and it really helped fuel markey's victory over Kennedy by more than ten points I think Marquis also did a really good job of sort of. Himself as a progressive in this moment when progressivism especially in Massachusetts especially in Massachusetts Democratic primary you know what carries a lot of weight and his alliance with Alexandria causing cortes really cast him as. Really cast him as that progressive on the other side you know it was up to Joe Kennedy to really make a case while quite marquis should be fired and I think for a lot of voters he just didn't do that. So, let me ask you a lot of incumbents won last night Anthony. So what does that do to this idea that this is about youth insurgency? Well, I mean arguably Markey's case the youth and progressivism and all those progressive political groups from the sunrise movement to people who care about the agenda put forth by Okasha Cortez I mean it was fueled by by Progressive Energy and a lot of ways. But if you're talking about Ritchie Neil out in the first congressional district where he was challenged by Alex Morris, you know the progressives didn't carry the day out there and yeah one of the big story lines from last night is all the incumbents across. Massachusetts all the members of Congress in the Senate one there one, their primary so Yeah. In that sense incumbency one progressivism upsetting the apple cart not so much. All right WBRC Anthony Brooks, I know you're going to stay with us for most of the show..

But that changed that generational argument was not as potent here as it has been elsewhere like when now congresswoman Ion Presley pulled off her surprise win in a nearby Boston district just two years ago. Marquis touted his left leaning Boniface including his green new deal sponsorship in the Senate and lockdown a coveted endorsement from congresswoman Alexandra Okay Cortes among other progressive groups plus Marquee Social Media Strategy deployed memes and Tiktok helping to recast the seventy four year old Washington veteran as an extremely online figure popular with younger voters in the end. Marquee delivered a blow. Some are calling the end of. The Kennedy Political Dynasty I'm not sure I agree with that. I very much expect Kennedy to remain in public life and likely run for another office. Again down the line after all, he's only thirty nine but Kennedy's loss on Tuesday was a i. a Kennedy has never before lost in election in Massachusetts. Marquee will now face a Republican this November though the seat is still considered safely. Democrat. So, let's get to the point. It's almost a rarity these days an incumbent, actually fending off a younger primary challenger with a potent last name, but Ed Markey did it. And that is the point four September second twenty

Who have served into their seventies and and beyond on DH, and they can't relate anything that's going on in this country. Well, I'm not going. I'm not going to argue that point with you. I'm just saying is that he's not the oldest living United States Senator Nora No. When he hits 80 at the end of this term.

Congratulations on your victory in the Republican Senate primary tonight. Thank you, Dan. So my question is this How do you How do you run a campaign as a Republican in Massachusetts against an incumbent Democrat who just be the Kennedy On his his failure. Toa the president states for the last six years, which Congressman Canady very effectively pointed out. He focused on his voting record, which is quite extreme. He has identified himself as the party of being from the party of AOC, not JFK. I think most people in Massachusetts will reject that vision, so bad attendants and bad voting. Uh, and bad leanings, I think. Well, um, rendered him quite vulnerable, and I'm quite confident with the witness. Well, one thing that I was surprised at was he took the John Kennedy inaugural address. Quote, Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country and he turned it on his head. Um and said, you know, we did that we did do for our country. But now respectfully. It's time for us to ask what our country can do for you. Um, I think that there are still people. Who who will respond to that clarion call of President Kennedy in 1961 and I think that you may have you may have an argument that a lot of Democrats might be willing to listen to. Absolutely. For all those Kennedy Democrats out there who believe that shit. I asked what we should do for our country. First and foremost, we have a candidate for you. It's Kevin O'Connor. I'll be your fighter. Well given appreciate it again. I know that the Republican primary did not receive a great deal of publicity, but we will look forward to having you on the show and give you an opportunity, Tio. Spend an hour at some point and take phone calls and answer questions. And for us to learn to learn more about you. You you? This is your first run for public office if I recall correctly Right. And what motivated you to most people jump in, and they run for school Committee or City Council or state representative? Maybe you're going right by that What would vary to this race? On the father of four boys stand and I worry about our country and I don't want my kids growing up under the policies that Ed Markey is advocating. So the best way to bring about change is to step forward and make it happen..

"Well. We're going to talk to in a little bit name named Dennis. He feet. Who's I think when your constituents who that amazing, how disability healthcare advocate and his friends or just dying by the day and you have fought to hold people to account. You fought to try to figure out what best answers are and it seems like. We're now in a spot where all of those things are just thrust at us in a way that the safety nets disappearing from. What it does is then yearly puts towards public. You have this moment that actually shows in this room and vicious relief. that. We're not for many of us. We're not the country is not. that. You can't look at. The rates of which blacks Hispanics are dying from covid nineteen, not say run-ins equal access to healthcare. We can't look at the rate in which minorities getting infected with covid nineteen and say hey. There is some sort of environmental justice aspects to this. In terms of everything from ultra fine particles in elation and prevalence of asthma, COPD, and incidence of. Infection to overall health. Terms of health, which again you know better than anybody literally any and. And so, we got this moment here where you have this just. Brutal 's reality and honesty steering all of us in the face and now saying, what are you going to do about it? And so. The idea that you can somehow say oh, we're going to the the policy response. Here's a tax cut. Tax Cut away. From this and we can, we can make sure that if I'm behind gated community with a private school in private police force and privatize this and that, but somehow able insulate myself from the spread of worse noon. And so if you're not, the question becomes okay. What do we what kind of system do want there to be able to care for our neighbor? Not just because it's the right thing to do, but because the metric system cares for the neighbor. Make sure that it will be there to care for me in bribes. If I'm lucky. We don't have to care for me because I don't get sick in the first place in my neighbor doesn't. And that's the question that that comes to the forest. And the the obvious shooter drop on that one is. It's wonderful to have this model healthcare where millions of people over one hundred sixty million. Get their healthcare from their job. Until forty five minutes will lose that job. Will at the moment you lose your job because of a pandemic. And at the moment, there's pandemic and then when you actually might need healthcare at the moment. Where if you actually get sick this thing you could spend a week's in an ICU. You know attached to a ventilator. If you better than I would, but last time I checked if you were on a of them later for three weeks in an ICU Japan walk out of there with a bill in the hundreds of thousands of dollars. Right Yep. And, if you don't have insurance,.

Any questions, Comments, not speeches. Jeff in Lynnfield, Jeff first this hour on the ring Central. Nice. I caught a line with Congressman Joe Kennedy. Go ahead, Jeff. Hey, Dan. How you doing? First thought that all the way they caught you, Davis. The correct that I've met that I was listening. Probably. I'm just going to say the Kennedy name doesn't carry the juice at once. Did your uncles and and your grandfather and your great grandfather Of all what they've done over the years. My grandfather was a A liquor exporter, and during prohibition were getting a little off topic. Jeff, We're getting a little off topic. Do you have a question? Father Starlet off my Jeff. You know, you waited a long time for that. I'm going to move on. Thanks to appreciate the call. Let's go next to Jenna in West Roxbury Congressman again. We'll try to get some questions. Good that you could respond to General West Rocks. We hate Jenna. How are you? You're on the ring Central. Great. You're with Congressman Kennedy. Go right ahead. Awesome. Hi, Congressman. Microphone is so you You talked about crowing about it, and he talked about how you have been working to help Master is with the qualifiers and I saw that new have introduced 20 bills in this isolated session and Ed Markey has introduced 125 votes, which is way more So how are you making the argument that you have done better from Massachusetts and will be better when he had so many more bills than you have? John is a great question. I appreciate it and what I would say That is because there's far more to this job than the bills that you find the ghost cat. And obviously, yes filing legislation is important. But if that were the end of the story, then all we have to do is put words on a page and say we're done. That's not where this goes, and so what way that we could take on a virus? I think if you look at my actions over the course of that time will we get the paint? And I was the first candidate won our first entire country and certainly Ah, first in this race, the only one in this race that suspending my campaign we turned all of the communications for my campaign into information about the virus. We did well being called just check in with tens of thousands of seniors across the state. I didn't raise money for my for my campaign for six weeks. And instead we raised over $100,000 for local charities that were on the front lines of trying to get P P E and food and basic sustenance. Senator market never suspended campaign and kept on writing from so And I was one of the first people in the entire country to call for direct cash payment system to try to provide, uh to alleviate some of the burden that families we're going to confront when they were out of work because we had to shut down. I spent hours on the phone, helping to acquire the state acquired end of thousands hundreds of thousands of T P, So I'll put my record and in the midst of a crowd of iris up against anybody, but Let me be clear. It's so much bigger than that, because Again with senator market argument is look at my record in the way of I voted, and that's enough. That urgent Jenna to take a look at that record, Senator Markey A marketing voted for the Iraq war. And Mark you voted for crying, but it ended up in massive cars. We haven't even done as good a senator Marquis, you have. Okay, Jenna. I think we're not going to debate it. Yes, you question God And what a pretty comprehensive A lot different if we're measuring success by the bills that you file Then, if that's if that's what you believe, in the most appropriate way of measuring success, that's one thing. What I would often tell you is that filing legislation Particularly when you're in a Republican controlled Senate doesn't give you the answer. Which is why when we were in the House minority when we're in the minority, the House the Senate, the president, 2018 I went toe over nearly 20 states around this country. Tryingto put the house so that we could do things like Protect the Affordable Care Act passed back on checks for gun purchases, A Path Equality Act. It's a project. In fact, do these things hold the president accountable, actually engaging impeachment proceedings. We did all of those things with the Democratic House. I was in 2600 market wasn't in one. Let me get Let me get a couple more calls. Mark barely want anybody without anybody else. That's the other part of this job. There's more to it. There's so much more to this job and thing. I put words on a page, and that's it. Let's go to Amy and Weymouth. Amy, You're next on night side with Congressman Joe Kennedy. Go ahead, Amy. Hi, Congressman. I'm a huge Joe Biden fan, And I think we really need him to be the next president. But a friend of mine actually told me he hadn't endorsed him yet, and I looked on your website. And couldn't find an endorsement on DH When I googled Kennedy endorses bite in. All I found was Vicki Kennedy endorse aside and Caroline Kennedy endorses finance. Okay, let's get let's get going. Kennedy to comment on that. Go ahead, Congressman. 100% for Joe Biden. It's said that before said it again and I look, I I, um make that totally clear one.
