"For congress to fight for jobs healthcare and social security i find it fascinating that scott you're saying that they're that republicans are essentially trying to make this race a referendum on lamb in many ways and the race may be becoming one because you know lamb is the one has gotten so much attention given his ads and given the republican ads lamb as the one who's been in the focus of everything but you know what's fascinating to me is in just talking to some democrats who've worked on these kinds of house races over the last couple of days they're are starting to try to talk about the tax bill and how if lamb were to win that it proves that the tax bill is actually not a message that republicans are easily running on which is fascinating because a moderate democrat that i talk to earlier in the week said that he thought that uh democrats themselves were doing a pretty bad job messaging within the tax plan anybody there scott talking about it not that many actual voters i've talked to but i think that is a good argument because i was talking about all these ads being run linking lamb to pelosi a national democrats a lot of that has been focused on the tax bill an and saying that nancy pelosi said that this tax bill did nothing but give people crohn's nancy pelosi and conner lam are still a home in your tax cut lamb called it a complete betrayal and pelosi said this is armageddon middleclass tax cuts bonuses pay raises crumbs is so pathetic pelosi and lamb two out of touch too many taxes crumbs as the phrase that republicans are going to be talking about the rest of the year so that has been the advertising but if you look at the polls they've not really drag lambs numbers town he's ahead in some polls in it's very close no matter what you look at so i think the thinking is worth the hit him with this so much and it didn't work what.
