In some areas, but I want to get to the Senate first and foremost because We know Senate leader Mitch McConnell. Hey, won't he won reelection? There was no blue wave that a lot of people have had talked about Phil. What happened with the Senate and for that matter, but the seats lost in the house by Democrats. Well, um Really the only kind of Republican and looks like you lost was AH were to Cory Gardner in Colorado and Martha McSally. In Arizona and And all the other ones that were supposedly in trouble seem to have pulled it out. Which means that, um Republicans probably hold the Senate. Looks like we're gonna have At least one, possibly two runoff in Georgia. But it was pretty good night and there were some house pick up this well for Republicans. So I'm assuming any stimulus that now ah is created will be a little bit less expensive than we may be anticipated if we're going to see a blue wave Uh, yeah. I mean, any standing deal that's done now, you would think, um You'll have to be approved by Mitch McConnell eventually, and O R at least has to be able to pick off some Republican vote. Uh, today is different. Scenario slightly Ah, because you know, depending on the outcome of the presidential and it looks like with the huge dropped from Milwaukee. The Democrats are going to AA, you know, find the vote in the state between we'll probably have a president Biden and You know, there've been negotiated deals between Biden McConnell in the past, but that will essentially be the dynamic if it ends up on the way. It looks right now, Phil, Phil, go into that film. But you're saying it looks like a Biden victory. This is new. Ah, this is breaking. I mean, take me through it, Phil. Wiring. What are you seeing that some people aren't Now this big drop of ballots. I think in Wisconsin that has put mine in the lead at the moment. Um I think it's going to be the The M O similar in Michigan. What? What? What? What Recourse does the president have here? Hey mentioned possibly taking us to the Supreme Court overnight. What do you think he was talking about? Now. I don't know. There's the there's the late count of ballot issue in Pennsylvania, potentially.

This whole idea that they would shut it down in the Manger Democratic stronghold and then suddenly come out with votes the next day or the next morning or later, I think is really horrendous. I agreed with what the president said on that. All they can do is try to do their best with observers and lawyers and try to keep the count is honest as possible. Now. All right, Phil.

Hickenlooper flips first Senate seat as Democrats look to take back the chamber
"That's right, as we thought might happen. Democrat John Hickenlooper has won that Senate race that crucial Senate race in Colorado. So that seat is now officially the first one to flip From Republican hands now to Democrat hands. Now, the reason that we thought this was a possibility was because John Hickenlooper is a pretty unique candidate in a state that has been trending bluer and bluer. Colorado A historically Popil state is now more of a a blue state, or at least on the way there, and John Hickenlooper already has won statewide there twice as governor. He's not only a popular figure there, but he has the benefit of being familiar to voters. He was also the tutor mayor of Denver. This is somebody who has a reputation for being a pragmatist. Somebody who has a reputation for being able to reach across the aisle. Hey, had that failed sort of long shot bid for president. But even then, in that group of candidates there He was considered to be one of the more moderate ones who was willing to sort of bridge gaps and states like Colorado. Certainly like that. So tough night for Cory Gardner, who lost his seat. Sometimes these things are cyclical. So this is a year that Democrats feel like they're on offense for 23 races. It was the opposite back in 2014. When Cory Gardner won his seat. There was a big red wave that night. The Senate certainly look good for Republicans back in 2014. Cory Gardner was sort of swept in that aunt. He served out his term. At one point, he was considered one of the most bipartisan senators in the entire body. Not enough to get it done tonight. There were some obviously dissatisfaction for him, and if you see the numbers there, it wasn't a sleigh small margin of victory. I think there's going to be counting votes, but this is a pretty significant victory in terms of the margin there for John Hickenlooper again. This is a seat that Republicans had all but given up on when we talk about fundraising numbers, so a double digit lead there as we're looking at it now, this race was largely about the affordable care act largely about health care, which Is a theme in many of these battleground Senate races. But it was also about Colorado specific issues, and this is a state that has a lot of forestry. This is a state where there were a lot of environmental concerns among the voters that frankly, they were not happy with Cory Gardner's performance in the Senate. He also it was very famously said in a number of debates. Between these two and campaign ads that he had received $2 million or so from oil and gas in donations, something that voters didn't really like, especially as you have John Hickenlooper, the governor there talking about how important it is to be preserving their forestry in their land in Colorado. Certainly that might have had an impact here. But guys, this is a race that now we can officially call Oh, and it's just one. We're keeping an eye on a number of other Senate races. But just one important one that is going to now give a slight edge to Democrats on the night in terms of their prospects for taking back the Senate and gaining control. Of the chamber. All right,

But Hickenlooper is still well known, and he's well liked by a lot of people who aren't necessarily of the political class.

America's next top chamber, modelled: the Senate battle
"In, America's elections just six weeks away. The most important thing to be decided is who will win the presidency. Time before. has there been a clear choice between two parties to visions to philosophies and two agendas for the future. There's never been a vision like this. Sleepy. Joe Jeff from. What pundits had been talking a lot less about is which party will end up with control of the Senate, the legislature's upper house. Attention and donations have focused on Senate races. This week is a fierce battle begins over the replacement of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader. GINSBURG. The president plans to use the power the voters gave him to make a nomination. Senators will use the power the vote gave us. Either provide or withhold consent. As we say, fifth. Republican senators are keen to get a nomination through before the elections. Earlier. In the year, the party seemed set to keep its majority but President Donald. Trump's handling the pandemic and racial justice protests have opened the possibility the Democrats could take it. In America's rigid two party system control of the Senate is a big determinant of what any government can actually get done. But forecasting which party will win control is more complex than it might seem. Predicting Races for Congress is a bit more complicated than predicting the race for the presidency. There are thirty five different races fought in different states between different candidates over different issues and often using different rules. Then Rosenheck is the economists data editor. I have spent the past few months building a statistical model that seeks to predict the results of this November's congressional elections for the House of Representatives, and the Senate in the United States and so how. Do you get past those complexities to t to model it then? So our model makes use of a few broad types of information. It first looks at the state of the race nationally using generic ballot polling as well as the president's approval rating, and if you other predictors to say, okay, we think this is going to be a good year for the Democrats a good year for the Republicans overall. Then it drills down to the state level and. says. Okay. What did we know about this Senate race before we saw our first poll of that race? Well, we know how it voted in past elections. We know if there's an incumbent or not. We know the candidates fundraising totals. If there's an incumbent, we know how they voted in Congress. We know how much experience in politics candidates have, and then the final step is to blend those prior expectations with whatever the actual polls of the race. Say, and so it synthesizes all of that information in two and overall prediction by exploring three hundred fifty thousand different scenarios for the Senate and four point thirty, five, million for the house every single day. So it conservative explore every possible universe. We can think of that this election might take and see which scenarios are most probable but the universe that we're having these elections in is one that contains what the historical data don't, which is a pandemic. That is a very good point and it is definitely a weakness. We don't know whether one party or the other will benefit from that. But I think what we can say is that it would needs some pretty large effects that would need to be consistent and systematic across states to drive the results far outside the confidence intervals that we would expect based on decades and decades of data on past elections. With those caveats behind this then what does the model currently predict for? November. The model shows that the Democrats are a clear but narrow favorite to win back the Senate and currently shows that they have a sixty seven percent or two in three chance of winning the upper chamber, and it's kind of an interesting path of how they get there because assuming that they lose Doug Jones seat in Alabama, which is very conservative state they need to flip four Republican held seats and they only lead in four states and they would need to win all four that would be something of a tall order and what are those four states what are the issues there So the Democrats have pretty clear leads in Colorado and in Arizona in Colorado Democrats have nominated John Hickenlooper is a moderate former governor. He is currently leading in the polls against the Republican incumbent Cory Gardner. The picture in Arizona is similar you have a Republican incumbent and is now facing an extremely strong Democratic nominee in Mark Kelly. WHO's an astronaut? He's raised an enormous amount of money are model certainly thinks those two are not short flip the Democrats but eighty ninety percent that range then. There are two more states in North Carolina. You have a rather unloved Republican incumbent clue has been running consistently behind, and then finally there is main where Susan Collins, the most moderate Republican in the Senate. Now faces a very tough challenge from the speaker of the State House of Representatives who is up by maybe five six points on average. So you're got a headline prediction of the Democrat chances. Here is based on those four races being cinched up I mean is that really so certain? So. The reason why the model is so bullish on the Democrats is what we're calling the long tail, the donkey's long tail. There is a surprisingly extensive list of sort of Second Tier Senate races in which Democratic candidates are underdogs, but have a realistic credible shock to come from behind and win. So that's I Alwa- that's Kansas. That's both the seats that are up for election in Georgia, Montana Alaska and South Carolina, and even Texas so in every one. Of these races, Armato thinks it is more likely than not that the Republican will win however the odds of the Republicans win all of them in the Democrats win none are not so great and if Democrats even score one or two upsets from this very wide list of targets states, their position gets a lot
Is Mitch McConnell Rigging The Game?
"Other news, there's the other branch of Congress or the other house. Of Congress. The Senate and everyone knows their Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell is unshakable and ruthless, and he's going to maximize his power however cam, but it is also the case the death of Justice Ruth Bader GINSBURG has taken us to uncharted territory. There are very real political pressures that are going to affect how the next several months play out. Mitch McConnell does not care about being charged with the Crisi but the raw politics of this moment themselves are not uncomplicated. As it was with the affordable care act remember Mitch McConnell had a lot of bravado about that and he failed famously and humiliatingly to replace the law. Here's mayor discuss across pressures. He faces longtime McConnell Allah Gist Jane Mayer Chief of Washington correspondent New Yorker wrote an incredibly insightful profile McConnell back in April this weekend row quote from Mitch McConnell keeping a Senate. Majority matters more than the Supreme Court. Jamie. It's great to have. Let's start with that because it seems to me there's two imperatives here. Everyone says about McConnell the two things he cares about is keeping the Senate majority and being Senate majority leader. Judges the Federal Bench, and there is a way to interpret the politics of the moment that there's a little bit attention between those two imperatives. How do you see it? Well, I mean there is I mean he wants to get obvious wants to hold the majority wants to stay being majority leader. And, this is going to be the crowning moment of his career to have yet one more justice on Supreme Court here we can get him through and he's promised trump of course that he's going to have a vote on this, and so how do you do this the problem? The problem for McConnell is it's unclear if he can keep the majority in the Senate. It's a dicey election year for him. There are a number of racist. They're very close and he doesn't want to do anything that's going to hurt the endangered members of his caucus. So he's got to try to juggle the schedule in some way that doesn't put those members on the spot in a way that will hurt them. So he's the first thing he's going to do an, and surely his done is canvas. Those members find out exactly how they feel about how this this process would affect their races. And then, and then way that in terms of whether it be better have a vote before or after the election. So. It's it's. It's. It's it's tricky but he is nothing if not clever about things like this this is he he? Very early on in his career, he ran for office from a district where he hadn't been resident in residence long enough and he vowed after that, he would never again ignore the rules, and since then he's become kind of a master of the rules, the more arcane the better. And he just he loves talking to the parliamentarian in the Senate and figuring out sort of the the most devious ways to get what he wants. The most sort of obvious pressure here. Just talking about this and I think it's pretty interesting. There's a bunch of folks who are up. In who are imperilled where it's not clear That going ahead with this would be helpful them. We have a bunch of pulling out today showing majority of people oppose it. Those numbers will probably change as they converge towards the polarization and everything else. But like Cory Gardner is down in all the polls and Colorado, he's in a state that Democrats have carried. Now a bunch and plan to carry again Martha. mcsally sally is down a to mark Kelly. You know they're on the sort of aggressor side here in terms of public opinion. It does seem like they've kind of don't care. It doesn't seem like there's a jump together mentality here in terms of getting them to come out whether it was him or not a publicly for those. Well I think. He's GonNa. Be Looking at McConnell will look at each of these races and I think you can almost imagine that he's written off. Gardner in. Colorado, and makes out the in Arizona. So he's not going to change his plan just for them unless he thinks it's going to save them and you'd probably thinks it won't save them and he's already given collins kind of buy in Maine. So it gets you down to the racist that are really going to matter in this are probably it's it's probably Tillis in North Carolina, Joni Ernst in Iowa, and Danes in in Montana, and if McConnell feels that those three or not endangered by going head, he may just gun it. You know and and try try to get I think though that in addition to just thinking about each of these races and how it affects each of the races, there's something else. He's probably got to think about, which is the overall look of this thing if if it appears to the American public that he is one set of rules for Democrats and there's another set of rules he's got for Republicans here, one Senate rules for America and another set of rules for whoever trump nominates at this point, it looks like he's reading the game it looks corrupt. It looks like a naked power, grab an and it's ugly and that could actually create a backlash I think that both he and trump have to think about. It it might really bother a lot of people in this country to think that that it's it's just too corrupt game in Washington. Yeah, I. think that's a correct reading of both where the polls are and the political risks they run and I think it's notable that McConnell has committed to vote but not win and I thought. This was also notable. He wrote this dear colleague later re basically says I don't say anything don't lock yourself into position. Let it give it give us time to work over the coming days. We're GONNA come under tremendous pressure from the press to announce how he will handle the coming nomination for those who are unsure how to answer for those inclined to oppose giving nominee a vote I urge you all to keep your powder dry Dombrowski and collins. Have not heeded that but Mitt Romney said declined today saying anything I know Pat Toomey in Pennsylvania I fully expect will support moving forward. But that that to me, it was interesting because the timing here and the sort of needle to thread is not nothing I think we'll try to do it and the odds are in their favor they will. But because of exactly what you and unseeded from the political standpoint, it's not clear that this is help for them politically in the short term. I think it may not be I. Mean I think also it's going to energize the base on both sides here for and the thing is that when it comes to the energizing the base, the base that needs more energizing really is probably on the Democratic side and you've already seen it happen I, mean look at the amount of money that act Lou raise you know practically overnight a hundred, million dollars two, hundred and sixty. Now it's one hundred and sixty million dollars. Shipping shocking about money. Shocking money an and I think the other thing that it might do is from was doing some reporting two days. I think it may really energize kids younger voters because. You know they were kind of holding their nose, a lot of them about Joe Biden it wasn't an exciting. It didn't seem you now like there was that much reason to do it. Now there's a reason that a lot of young people are GONNA see they're gonNA look they're gonNa see Roe v Wade is in the balance they're going to see a four Bul healthcare act and possibly anything to do with insurance for preexisting conditions and they're looking at the future this is going to. Their. Lives for the this is a this is a decision that has tremendous implications for everybody in the country and it's GonNa be clear and so I, you know it may turn you know help turn out. The Democrats who were young. Six three Roberts court climate. Regulation jurisprudence. A. Favorable to the kinds of solutions. That are necessary. Do you think?

There's the Iwa Joni Ernst race I mean it's wild how wide the sort of battlefield has gotten for him to try to hold this thing together. It's it's really volatile and and and the thing is it. What it does is it puts the Republicans on the spot about they've been doing kind of a split that's broader and broader that gotta keep the trump face and and but that's not enough for in many places to get reelected, and so they've got to do is add in. The moderates the you know suburban women particularly and got a candidate here who for a nominee for the supreme court that is truly the choice of the evangelical part of the trump ace it by very much alienate moderate women in the suburbs and in other places especially over things like abortion where sixty two percent of the people in this country saver. Abortion. As keeping it legal and don't WanNa go backwards. So it's it's. It's I think it's a it's it's a it's a it's a risky thing for some ways. You people think it's all into such a gift.

"US Senator Cory Gardner just announced he will vote to confirm Ah, a Supreme Court nominee before the election. That means Romney is again basically, look at this point. We could lose Romney. And still have enough votes. Romney announced that he is not going to be making any comment on the matter until after tomorrow's luncheon with Senate Republicans, that's where they get together. They kind of get a gut check for kind of what they want to Teo. But I think, Lou, I think Mitch McConnell is whipping the votes and I think he's he's got the magic number locked in. It looks pretty good right now look good for garden because you know if he loses, he wins. If he wins, he wins by making the statement. Now the base has every obligation to get out there and get him over the finish line and work there very work their tails off in Colorado. If it causes him to lose the independence over the next couple of days and weeks. Then you know, the White House holds a solid Esso and, you know, lame duck president does a lot of appointing, as you know. So at the end of the day, the Supreme Court really, really matters more importantly, a re elected president. That's a lot of appointing So the Democrats are now threatening their threatening that if Trump tries to appoint they're going to impeach. They're goingto do all sorts of stunts and you know, like their hair on fire, But they now are saying if the Republicans are successful Number one. They will Ah packed the court they will expand the size of the court to 16 15 or 17. And then appoint a bunch of liberal justices. Now, you might say, Well, Carl that takes an act of Congress means legislation. So what about the filibuster of 60 votes in the Senate? Ah, yes, That's the other thing they mentioned. Looking to get rid of the filibuster. Now in full disclosure. I don't like the filibuster and I say, Get rid of it. I don't change my opinion based on who's in control. I say that, knowing that I admonish the Republicans back in 2017. And I said, You need to get rid of the filibuster. And you need to push through every single element of President Trump's agenda right now, before the 2018 election and show that you guys actually kept your word or you're gonna lose. The Senate will know we're afraid if we lose the sun, and we get rid of the filibuster than that. No, no, no, no, You don't get it. If you actually do your job, you won't lose the Senate. You won't lose the house. You'll actually get things done. And people will reward people who get things done. Know didn't do it. So now. You've got Ah, threat of getting rid of the filibuster in order to pack the U. S Supreme Court. Oh, they're not going to stop there. Ah, then what they're going to Dio is they're going to make the Washington D. C. The District of Columbia and Puerto Rico States that they can lock in an additional four Senate votes. So that never, ever, ever, ever, ever ever again in the future. Will there ever be a chance of a Republican majority in the Senate? Or it would be really, really tough to get there? Why do I think this has been like? Ah, a strategy? Ah, you know, that's been written out and stuck in a safe somewhere in the you know, with the Senate Minority Caucus officers Something that is not for a long time it pulling it out now, Lou, this is a temper tantrum. Okay, this is this is this is like saying the guy who showed up in La Mesa and burned down the donut shop. After ransacking and stealing, it said nine months ago, you know I'm going to find a reason to go burn down that doughnut shop now know they've always wanted little liberal policies. What you're seeing Lou. Is the epitome. Of the meltdown of the left and instead of leading and acting They literally are just simply saying we're goingto take out revenge. And if we can't get our way legally, what we will D'oh. Israel find extra legal ways to get our you know, and results that we seek. We will punish you were goingto ad in Puerto Rico is the state will do They deserve to be a state doesn't matter. It's a punishment because we had two Democrats, Senators. We're gonna add in the District of Columbia. Ah, why not? Just make him part of Maryland like they used to be? You know, then they get representation in no problem. No, no, no. We're doing it to punish you. So we get it. Is that what this is? It's punishment. Yeah. You're real mature there again. I go back to Brett Cabinet. Brett Kavanaugh's hearings are the ultimate justification for appointing This Senate this president, a Supreme Court justice. There's no reason Behind what the Democrats are doing. They are they will they literally you could. You could nominate Mother Teresa to the bench. And they will still call her a whore. They will still try to block her because their partisan has nothing do with merit. And so I say disregard them and lead. Hey, Republicans. Disregard the criticism from the liberal media and your Democrats that our lighting their hair on fire. Disregard and do your damn job because if the roles were reversed, Democrats certainly would do it. Yeah, I think there's no question about that. I mean, if the roles were reversed, we wouldn't be having these conversations at all. We'd be talking about how there's an obligation in the Senate. There's an obligation by the president and you cannot have incomplete Supreme Court. All right. When we get back, we got to get into this unemployment insurance benefit application process in California that has been completely and utterly Ah, wheels have come off altogether, and it's painful for the people that are applying will explain.

"Now on Colorado's morning news, the primaries in the rear view the race for November is set. Former Governor John Hickenlooper is the Democratic nominee for the U. S. Senate. He'll face incumbent Republican Senator Cory Gardner in the general. The two are already trading barbs, an important thing to be talking about in Colorado, and that's whether somebody who said they're not cut out to be a senator is actually right in that analysis of his own abilities. Pretend he's independent when he's in Colorado, But we know what Donald Trump told us himself. Cory Gardner is with him 100% of the time. Well, at least the hard, Trump told the truth about that we take a look at the match up with you. Political science professor Ken Vicars can good morning. Morning, Martin. What is the messaging strategy of both men where they I guess most vulnerable. Let's start first with John Hickenlooper. Yeah. So there are basically two ways to run. These kind of contest. One is as a referendum. On national politics and the president and the others as a choice election. Where is the choice between the two specific candidates running and you can see the Hickenlooper? Is already making this a referendum election that Trump is is low in the polls and even lower here in Colorado, it appears, and so he's tying Cory Gardner to Donald Trump and trying to make this a referendum. Not on Cory Gardner, but on Donald Trump. Oh, and you can see the gardener is following the choice election by by pointing to specific things that Hickenlooper has said and done and no doubt we'll see a lot more of that, as the election unfolds. Can do We know if the ethics violations hurt Hickenlooper in the primary. Do voters care? Well, it may actually come toe hurt him a little bit more in the general electorate than it did among Democrats. Democrats mostly wanna win that their main goal unaffiliated voters, which make up the largest single voting block in the state. For a lot of unaffiliated voters ethics That's that's an important consideration Might my own sense is that it's so many months until the election. That issue will be long forgotten by the time we get to early November. Probably. I'm probably conflating things here, but you always you shared that kind of conventional wisdom that you run a primary different than a general meeting. You tack toe, one side or the other In the case of Cory Gardner, the fact that he's attached himself at the hip in many ways with Donald Trump. Will that hurt him? Maurine the general. Then it say what if he would have had a real serious primary challenge? Well, A primary challenge probably would have come at him from the right not from the middle. We saw that in the third Congressional district actually interesting result from yesterday. Ah, You already saw that He's talking about how how bipartisan. Ia's talking points include that he's the third most bipartisan member of the Senate, so he's already trying to make the move. To the middle and and no doubt will be talking about the specific ways in which he did that. And it will be Hickenlooper, who is who is attaching him at the hip to Donald Trump? Does that mean we won't see President Trump's stumping for Cory Gardner in Colorado. Well, we might a lot will depend on what happens with Donald Trump's numbers..

Kfi News director eight Troy's so Some interesting news This as there is some hope foot as president. Trump introduced that three-phase plan to get America up and running again but the question is where does Colorado fall into that equation. A big part of what the issue is going to be going forward is that we are starting to see groupings of states form in preparation for the quote unquote reopening in that they try are trying to manage on a regional basis and be able to Kind of set a set at Easter. A line of how they'll handle things you've got one. That is taking shape in the northeast. You have one that has of course taken shape along the seaboard in the West with the Oregon Washington California doing so and then one in the upper mid west or on the yesterday of of course Michigan Wisconsin. Those states Colorado finds itself with the only other state To its east that would be a potential Kansas of course New Mexico with cases. But then you get into the states that do not have orders in place in terms of stay at home and have limited cases Wyoming Montana Idaho which has a number of cases but again. You've got differing setups. In Nebraska. A short makes the plans going forward In terms of trying to make a you know in terms of putting forth ideas and how best to handle these situations it puts Colorado really almost on its own in a lot of ways and is that necessarily a negative. I mean if we don't you know if we don't fall into that category as he said we have coalitions of states forming but it seems to me that each state has kind of an entity unto itself one of the things though about being able to be part of that group is a better management of some of the resources that say for example Has Been in short supply such as ventilators because when we do get going again And lit a number of these orders across the region. You're going to see you know the potential again for the the virus do put to the hospital at larger numbers. Exactly and so. How do you manage some of the resources That have been limited and coming from the federal government That are able to manage those among each state. That's near you and be able to really help each other out given that that's kind of been the reliance anyway Throughout this entire thing well and again A Senator Cory Gardner this morning. Talking about the importance of testing and having those test kits readily available by some eleven to pick up a slurpee. So the question is do. We have enough testing to reopen. If that's going to be a huge issue going forward and I think that the governor in alluding to really being era alluding to it and really Being about a five day stretch here. That will tell the story on how we go forward. speaks to that because there is not nearly the testing that is available or intake. Not nearly the testing that has been made available or could be made available at this point really for all of the states to be able to manage The the testing you want to see take place when you do get The stay at home orders knocked off and start to work on trying to get your cells To a point where we restore What is quote unquote normal or at least close to somewhat normal right exactly? Now there are some glimmers of hope in terms of of the the testing in terms of the varying tests. That have gone out and are possible but I don't I don't think that I don't think we're anywhere near unfortunately The number of tests of being available to be able to make this go off though the way that the White House.

"President trump who's told states to fend for themselves has had female blocking orders for vital equipment secured by governors some of them anyway so the government can buy them instead this week FEMA see is that in order for five hundred ventilators from a private company obtained by democratic Colorado governor Jared Paul is only to have trump give back a hundred of them at what he called the request of the state's endangered Republican senator Cory Gardner Thursday's Denver post editorial declared trump is playing a disgusting political game with our lives but the trump administration says it's got a plan and that it's working White House adviser Peter Navarro April second these guys up here doing a heck of a job organizing the supply chain well I think that's news to a lot of medical providers no I'm levy is a national health care reporter for the LA times trying to follow the cultic nineteen supply chain I can't say I've talked to many hospitals or doctors offices or clinics around the country who feel that the supply chain is being managed in anything close to a rational way that's for sure and we can't seem to get answers from FEMA or the White House about what system if any is being used to balance the needs a couple weeks ago I was speaking with the head of the Texas academy of family physicians who working with the golfing buddy of his managed to in about a half million masks over the border from Mexico and then spent about seventy two hours getting them to rural hospitals and doctors offices around Texas because the state of Texas didn't have anything to distribute so you've got the system in which everybody's running around trying to get masks and ventilators and everything else and then on top of that is a totally opaque system of what appears to be haphazard intervention by the federal government on some supplies but not all of them everyone is completely perplexed we hear that trump is having no problem directing to Florida whatever Florida seems to need so zero which is the agency that is allegedly responsible for distributing supplies from the strategic national stockpile has claimed that they have some formula for distributing medical supplies that reflects states in large metro areas relative populations and the relative severity of corona virus outbreaks they are actually shipping things across the country however it's impossible to find out what that formula is whether or not allowances are being made in one way or another four criteria that have not been identified president trump hasn't been shy about claiming that he's willing to reward its friends and punish his enemies the conspiracy minded person might think well is there some nefarious methods to how these supplies are getting distributed or not we just don't

we're going to distribute them the owner of the New England Patriots flew the patriots plane to China to go pick up a shipment of masks and flew back to Boston the problem is when you have this sort of thousand points of light approach to procuring and distributing needed supplies what ends up happening is that well connected medical centers that have relationships with large companies either because they do business with them or because they're located in their backyards are often times at the top of the list so for example sales force made a donation to the university California San

Calling Trump: When connections help steer virus supplies
"President trump who's told states to fend for themselves has had female blocking orders for vital equipment secured by governors some of them anyway so the government can buy them instead this week FEMA see is that in order for five hundred ventilators from a private company obtained by democratic Colorado governor Jared Paul is only to have trump give back a hundred of them at what he called the request of the state's endangered Republican senator Cory Gardner Thursday's Denver post editorial declared trump is playing a disgusting political game with our lives but the trump administration says it's got a plan and that it's working White House adviser Peter Navarro April second these guys up here doing a heck of a job organizing the supply chain well I think that's news to a lot of medical providers no I'm levy is a national health care reporter for the LA times trying to follow the cold pick nineteen supply chain I can't say I've talked to many hospitals or doctors offices or clinics around the country who feel that the supply chain is being managed in anything close to a rational way that's for sure and we can't seem to get answers from FEMA or the White House about what system if any is being used to balance the needs a couple weeks ago I was speaking with the head of the Texas academy of family physicians who working with the golfing buddy of his managed to in about a half million masks over the border from Mexico and then spent about seventy two hours getting them to rural hospitals and doctors offices around Texas because the state of Texas didn't have anything to distribute so you've got the system in which everybody's running around trying to get masks and ventilators and everything else and then on top of that is a totally opaque system of what appears to be haphazard intervention by the federal government on some supplies but not all of them everyone is completely perplexed we hear that trump is having no problem directing to Florida whatever Florida seems to need so zero which is the agency that is allegedly responsible for distributing supplies from the strategic national stockpile has claimed that they have some formula for distributing medical supplies that reflects states in large metro areas relative populations and the relative severity of corona virus outbreaks they are actually shipping things across the country however it's impossible to find out what that formula is whether or not allowances are being made in one way or another four criteria that have not been identified president trump hasn't been shy about claiming that he's willing to reward its friends and punish his enemies the conspiracy minded person might think well is there some nefarious method to how these supplies are getting distributed or not we just don't know what difference does it really make if we know or we don't know what the formula is for distributing this stuff this is taxpayer money that we're talking about private actors in the market of

Second full day of Trump impeachment trial under way in Senate
"We've been listening to house impeachment managers present their case to the Senate should convict president trump on two articles of impeachment they are now we believe adjourning for the day the president is charged with abusing the power of his office and with obstructing Congress democratic house impeachment managers spent the day laying out the case for the removal of the president from office house lead impeachment manager Adam Schiff open the day's arguments and made this case against the president president trump has acted in a manner grossly incompatible with self governance his conduct has violated his oath of office and his constitutional duty to faithfully execute the law he has shown no willingness to be constrained by the rule of law and has demonstrated that he will continue to abuse this power and obstruct investigations into himself causing further damage to the pillars of our democracy if he is not held accountable I'm joined now by senior Washington editor and correspondent Ron Elving and NPR congressional correspondent because he's now hello do both hi there good to be with you all right let's start with what appears to have been the overall strategy here we're gonna listen again to Adam Schiff the house impeachment manager here at the end of today and he kept on repeating this let's assume you want to know exactly what happened in that conversation when it was fresh in someone's mind and he told Taylor about it and Taylor road in its notes you're going to want Taylor's notes in any court room in America holding a fair trial you would want to see contemporaneously notes this Senate should be no different demand those notes demand to see the truth we're not afraid of those notes we haven't seen them we haven't seen them maybe those notes say something completely different maybe those notes say no quid pro quo maybe does not say it's a perfect call I'd like to see them I'm willing to trust the master sword Taylor's testimony and his recollection I'd like to see them I like to show them to you they're yours for the asking all right Ron what is the strategy here what is Adam Schiff asking for we have waited and been commenting throughout the last of several shift performances of through the day to comment on this particular tactic that he's using which is wouldn't you like to know we've brought shop here is we've brought up that we've brought up this witness this potential document wouldn't you like to know wouldn't we all like to know the answer to what went on at this point and you can do it all you have to do is vote to subpoena these documents and these ones it's been a systematic narrowing of the scope of what documents and witnesses meet because it started out that that's what all we heard we heard that phrase repeated over and over and over by Democrats in the house and the Senate they want documents and witnesses what shift did throughout the course of today was to say this is the document we need and this is why we need it I think was really well system summed up by the what point when he said do you want to know the full truth now do you want to know just who was in the loop and that is the case that ship was making it's interesting that we are not at this particular point the managers are not so much arguing for the removal of the president from office what they're arguing for is to get the full record to hear from the witnesses to get the documents now course last night there were a series of votes on subpoenaing a number of these documents right and the Republicans voted them all down fifty three to forty seven every single time eleven times over but there's going to be another vote next week about having witnesses about going back over these documents and that's really what the managers were driving that is the crucial moment and they know that a lot of polls are out with something like sixty to seventy percent of the people in the country saying yeah let's have the witnesses let's have the documents let's see the evidence why not how effective has the argument then in your view it it's no mistake that he was making the most pointed argument interim prime time when people are watching and he's hoping that the people watching are people who live in say main where Susan Collins a Republican is up for reelection or Colorado where Cory Gardner another Republican is up for reelection he wants there to be a public pressure campaign on these vulnerable senators so that they come back next week and have to really seriously think about how they're going to cast their vote when a quiet question a witness comes up I mean you mention prime time obviously we know that about seven and a half million people tuned in during prime time yesterday that's a modest number but I mean it still is significant when you think about all the people that this will touch and and you know for the first time people really maybe tuning into this and might not know all the specifics and even people who do not tune in for the moment to moment gavel to gavel kind of coverage that you hear on NPR people who just get it later on before they go to bed in little snippets in a little bit of a news package just the last thing of the day even those people are going to hear the prime time stuff that is emphasized by whoever has the podium on a given day and this day it was a democratic managers tomorrow what will be the next day it will be then we get three days of the Republicans and they will do the same a democratic strategist said to me about a month ago that people largely didn't feel that they needed to tune into impeachment Intel it was actually happening until the present was actually being impeached and we have past that date with past the date when the those votes were cast and people are starting to pay attention in a way that they maybe didn't when it was just theoretical hearing we heard from different people throughout the day but Adam Schiff you know was sort of front and center I think it's three times four times he came to the podium and you know basically laid out the case over and over again he opened he closed he dominated throughout the day this is clearly a case of one impeachment manager being the lead horse now everybody else got a chance we we heard from so Lofgren was the last of the seven to actually get her chance and she's a person who's been around for the Clinton impeachment the Nixon impeachment as a staffer and she was making her side of the case talking about some of the legal of Judiciary Committee kinds of issues that came up a little later Adam ships main purchase here is he's the chairman of the intelligence community a committee rather in the house and so he is really been the driving force in the investigation in the house in two of what exactly went on with respect to Ukraine and the state department and all of these ambassadors and so forth you'll see what they're able to lay out the case in a way that people understood it I mean they were
Climate Change: A Partisan Issue?
"On today show on joined by Ryan and Williams and Rebecca Liba Ryan Williams is executive vice president targeted victory involves Mitt. Romney's two thousand twelve campaign spokesman. He joins us from Cape Cod road. And Rebecca Liba is a climate politics and science reporter for Mother Jones. She joins us from Washington. DC Ryan want to start by framing framing climate change as a policy position within the context of the current presidential election. And obviously I think it's fair to say that this like everything else. In American politics politics are everything else in American life is going to be seen as a partisan issue doesn't strike you that there is a serious policy difference between Democrats it's and Republicans or is this just a case of the Republican seeing the Democrats saw for this therefore we must be against it. I think there's a significant policy difference. Prince obviously president trump has mocked the green new deal which is the cornerstone of the Democrats Climate Change Agenda. It was put out by some of the more liberal politicians in the party party but it's become essentially a mainstream position amongst Democratic primary voters to support this and I think you're gonNA see every Democratic presidential candidate to some degree have to support report this or else risk alienating liberal voters who make up a significant portion of their primary electorate with Republicans trump is marcus repeatedly. He's mocked the concept of climate change. And I don't think his position is essentially where a number of Republicans are I think. Republicans are beginning to move a bit on acknowledging knowledge in the climate. Change is real for many years. Most Republicans running had said. The science is disputed. I think we're getting beyond that. Debate to some extent with mainstream Republicans publican's trump not being one of them. And I think now the question is how to solve it. The Democrats are taking it pretty dramatic and far left approach with the green new deal. I think some some Republicans you're GONNA see propose more moderate solutions. You've seen Lamar. Alexander Retiring Senator from Tennessee. Come out with a plan recently. That relies on investments and technology nuclear nuclear power. So I think that's kind of an overview basically of of how the debate is shaping up now with the two parties Rebecca if that is the case that there is a gathering consensus consensus among as Ryan says mainstream Republicans that there's not much dispute about the science that climate change is a thing have the proponents of the green renew deal possibly made a mistake in the packaging because obviously there's a couple of screaming red flags that to a lot of even moderate Republican Publican. Voters agree that the Republican base doesn't necessarily reflect what the president is saying on climate change. Denial polls consistently show Oh that acceptance of climate change science and belief that it's getting worse is the majority of voters while the president's still regularly. He calls this something like a hoax. But I think what the green new deal conversation has really done. Here is broaden out. The conversation on climate change for so long talk about climate solutions was really relegated to an environmental policy into this niche topic in debate and you saw that reflected in in the primary debates in past election cycles where there was no climate change debate that even came up because it felt like this bottom tier issue for voters what the green new deal has done is brought in that out and connect climate change to other policies like economic justice distace like social injustice like healthcare and. I think it's too early to tell if this is a tactical mistake but I think you've seen the results. It's just a few months. How climate change has really soared in the Democratic Party and it's consistently now ranked as a top tier issue and God for the first time fifteen? Eighteen minutes of debate in the first two presidential debates. Royan is there a way that you can run and win on this even if you do need to win. Lean over conservative voters as Rebecca pointed out there. There has been a tendency certainly among some parts of the Democratic Party and the left elsewhere to tie climate a change into things like economic justice and social justice traditional I guess Social Democrat left wing positions. Is that a mistake. Dyke from the democratic. Party's point of view. Do you think would it make more sense for them to run on actually the economic benefits of attempting to reinvent environmental environmental policy. All of which it can be plausibly argued that there are many well. I agree with Rebecca that this new deal certainly has raised the issue of climate change to a degree that it has is not been in recent years. It's being discussed now both parties with democratic debates. And of course president trump tweets about it frequently. I don't know if social justice and other liberal concerns are the best way to build consensus amongst the broader swath of voters. It certainly something that they're going to have to discuss right now. The Democratic candidates because they're trying to win over Democratic or credit base voters to secure the nomination so it makes political sense to focus on those issues right now in a general election. I really do think the economy's the biggest issue and the main attack on the green deal. He'll anybody who signs on the green new deal is that this is a job killing economy. Busting Bill because of its price tag because of the restrictions that puts on businesses and free enterprise and I think Democrats if they signed onto the new deal which most I think will are GonNa have to counter that with an economic message so I think in general election. They need to beep prepared if they're gonNA support this to counter the narrative that this is GonNa kill jobs. They're going to have to deal with that when they get to the general election whoever the Democratic nominee is Rebecca. Do you think there is oh has been just a brutally if you like economic case for combating climate change that you can actually make prophets From renewable energies. And is it arguable. That the Democrats and broadly left wing parties elsewhere in the world have been a bit shy about making the argument. I can remember myself talking to people. Involved in Green Energy in Abu Dhabi in one of the reasons they were excited about it was not just because of the environmental benefits because they thought the United Arab Emirates wearing a fantastic position to make immense amounts of money from it for so long. Climate Change has been framed in the US Set lease as a conversation around the costs of action and what it would cost to transition the economy from fossil fuels to renewables. And I think what's changed. Actually for especially in the Democratic Party is talking about this more as an economic opportunity and not just framing this as what are the costs in. How do we pay for it? But what are the costs of inaction first of all which is a conversation that we don't often focus and I think press should definitely always work into stories about talking about paying for climate change but I also think the green new deal what what that has done is give Democrats vision for in economic opportunity here. An investment in things like infrastructure in jobs. And that does I think give voters and economic message. Here that isn't just about. We need to fight climate change because of the moral reasons but because there there are economic reasons that are affecting you in your lifetime that this kind of investment could help you right now and. That's that's the message that I think. Green new deal. Proponents are trying to make. This election is a good test for how well they will make that message. Roy and do you think there are actual political opportunities for Republicans and other conservatives in approaching climate change if for example a Republican not necessarily presidential nominee but any republican running running for office next year was to decide to make this thing and get out in front of it. Could they reach their anyway. They could take Republican voters with them. All would a plurality of that Republican base just think that candidate X. had completely lost their mind gone over the wall and might as well be working for the other team. No I think there is an opportunity especially for some blue state. Republican senators are up for reelection in two thousand sixteen. I'm thinking of People Cory Gardner senator from Colorado who faces the very challenging reelection campaign. Proposing a common sense. Bipartisan solution. To address climate change. I think could give political benefits to a Republican running blue-state sensible moderate and have the ability to bring in swing voters and potentially some Democrats as well into their coalition. I do think though to achieve that. We're going to have to put forward a plan. Somewhat in line with what Senator Alexander has talked about which is basically a plan that doesn't have government overreach doesn't have the government dictating how things are going to happen. Happen to combat climate change but rather sparking the investment and technology that would be required to address it and then relying on something that Democrats have to some degree of opposed over the years which is nuclear power. Nuclear Power does not produce carbon in the air. It's something that Republicans have supported for years. And it's something. I think that a Republican publican could use as part of a broader solution to the topic. That would not alienate conservative voters. Just as a final thought on this rebecca when Democratic candidates have talked talked about the green new deal and when they've talked about climate change in general they have made frequently an appeal to some sense of national unity. The idea that this needs to be a collective effort something that the entire nation needed to get behind do together. Does it strike you especially in these polarized type of partisan sometimes that that kind of national cohesion is still a viable option. The American people are far. Less polarized on the subject of climate change than the political elites are and there are a few areas where the political elites Congress had some areas of consensus. They're very small alike. Nuclear Power has found some bipartisan consensus carbon capture and certain technological investments. The major challenge in election in is bringing this kind of message to a popular base. And I think this is truly a climate change election. The first time that climate change is front and center her and it will be a huge test for the green new deal going forward.

"Dwarf ROY Moore. It seems to me and I'll have the other members comment on this. There's an organized effort on the part of Republican leadership to keep people from defecting. The only bipartisan effort that is underway here in the United States capitol is the House Democratic effort where we've consistently seen. I six Republicans then eight Republicans then ten Republicans, then twelve Republicans you'll likely see that number increase continuing to vote with House Democrats to reopen government. You've also seen the same thing in the Senate in terms of Senate Republicans, Cory Gardner. And the Senator from Maine, Susan Collins as well as others increasingly expressed concern that the Republican position is responsible. Always simply saying is let's reopen government. So we can have a mature discussion about border security without holding eight hundred thousand federal workers hostage and the majority of the American people does anyone else want to respond democratic caucus chair, Hakim, Jeffries and other democratic leaders and a news conference earlier today? C span radio WCS PFM Washington. This is a real she's made radio programming from Tuesday WCBS pay from Washington. I think it was congresswoman Hayes who mentioned always simply asking for is Republicans to undertake their article one responsibility as a separate and Coequal branch of government and stop acting like wholly owned subsidiaries of the Trump administration. The responsible thing to do is simply work together in a bipartisan way reopen government. Allow for the time to have a discussion about these tough border security issues without damaging these federal workers, the American people small businesses farmers are others. We're going to continue to do our job. We hope the Republicans increasingly will start to demand that the Republican leadership in the Senate do their job as well. Katherine. If I can just add to that. I'd like to underscore that the Democrats are completely unified in that our objective is to reopen government. That is why we are taking the Republican Senate approved bills. Not the bills that we would draft as a blueprint for how we get government reopened democratic caucus vice chair Katherine Clark and just to emphasize what the chairman just said around homeland security, we're asking for thirty days keeping the pressure on those negotiations, but we're unwilling to do is is hold these federal employees their families the bottom lines, the loss in GDP that we're experiencing two billion dollars a week in lost wages and other economic factors hostage to this idea that we use this blunt terrible. Instrument of government shutdown to get a pet policy of the president. He had made an agreement with the Republicans in the Senate and under pressure from conservative commentators. He went back on that. So it is time for Republicans to say, let's get government reopened. Let's put the pressure back on go. She Asians and have those discussions in a way that is time limited, but we are extremely unified. And the American people are unified with us that shutting down government for this particular policy is not the way we need to go forward. I want to ask you want. Add that what we've experienced from this last election cycle is that every single member of congress on the house and the Senate side is accountable not to the president of the United States or two of the United States or to leadership of their own parties. But to the American people and to the citizens of their districts and alternately to get to a two thirds majority. That's where that pressure is going to have to come from is from people who want their Representative to do the right thing and to act in their best interest not to act in on the behest of Donald Trump to to stand up and say that we need to reopen government right now that sits with Mitch McConnell. I think. Just to follow up on what Katie said, we have a responsibility to the American people. We hear a lot about the numbers and the statistics about eight hundred thousand federal workers, these are all people these are families are faces faces when we're talking about their stories. We have to keep in mind that these are people when the president talks about this in a very partisan fashion. I'd like to remind them that you are my president too. You know? I'm no longer a candidate at the moment where I took the oath. I became the Representative of the people of the fifth congressional district. I have a responsibility to represent the people in my district. This president has a responsibility to represent all of the people in this country. We cannot run government based on campaign promises, it it's unconscionable to me that at the moment where Democrats were positioned to take control of the house border security became the number one issue of this administration. That's not how we govern. We have to put pressure from the inside from the outside from our communities on the elected officials to do the job that they were sent here to do. Cheddar. Issue. Americans maybe blaming. There's about thirty percents say is because Democrats say. Democrats. Now, he is around eight twenty five. We're gonna continue to work on behalf of all Americans. But I think any objective political scientists understands and I believe Donald Trump himself said that he could shoot someone on Fifth Avenue and some segment of the American people would remain committed to him. The fact is he's probably topped out at his number those people who we want to work with we want to reopen government for them. But understandably they are his core supporters, and it doesn't seem to matter. What he does they will continue to support him. But the problem that the president has is that the overwhelming majority of the American people outside of his narrow base agrees with our position, which is reopen government stop hurting American families, and then allow us to have a mature discussion about border security over the next thirty days. Face on everything that's been going on the last few days. With the president of the United States is a Russian. Well, I'm not gonna comment as to what my personal beliefs. All right now, I think that the problem has been with every bit of evidence that continues to emerge there is legitimate concern that high level members of the Trump campaign possibly, including the president did have interactions with Russian spies design to hijack the two thousand sixteen election sell out, our democracy and artificially put someone into sixteen hundred Pennsylvania Avenue at the end of the day. Yes. A process is going to have to work out through the Muller investigation. And our position has been uniformly with one or two exceptions. We have to let the Muller investigation conclude. He can then report to the American people to congress the department of Justice, and we can decide what the appropriate step is there after. Oh, I'm sorry. Go next. Jimmy. I think the next step that we've decided to take will be a resolution of disapproval that is going to be on the Florida house of representatives today put forth by. Our democratic whip James Clyburn..
"cory gardner" Discussed on NewsRadio KFBK
"Open back up without a border wall deal and others are just saying they need to find some sort of solution on Puerto wall. But overall the censorship every new day of the shutdown. The frustration particularly among some of these Republicans are gonna have to face voters again next year, just increasing more and more who's vulnerable at this point. I think you have to start with Cory Gardner in Colorado who, you know, Colorado. In the state, Cory Gardner is up for his election. He he first won in twenty fourteen. And so he's considered by Democrats to be their best target. And he's actually one of the senators who said that he wants to government token backup at least temporarily while they continue the negotiations and then you'll get Thom Tillis, North Carolina. Susan Collins of Maine joined. Purdue in Georgia. That's kind of a core group of senators who Democrats and Republicans considered her day sort of the targets next cycle and among most of them. There's growing frustration at this shutdown. It's continuing to go do those senators all feel the same way about this. Or the the towing a fine line. Like what what are they saying to constituents? In cases, towing a fine line. You know, saying that they they want border security, and they want to get a solution that funds border security, but you know, no one is cheering the shutdown. No, anything that the incoming government shutdown is a good thing. And they are concerned about how it's affecting people back home, including Susan Collins and Cory Gardner are saying they wanted to end they they are not opposed to continue to negotiate and try and find a border security and border wall solution, but they don't want to continue doing it with the government shutdown. That's kind of where the split is. But yeah, there's a it's a it is a fine line. Indeed. No one wants to say that they don't support the border wall border security, but none of these senators want the government to stay shutdown. Right. We're speaking with James Arken campaign reporter at politico about his piece entitled vulnerable GOP senators feel the heat of protracted shutdown is there an imaginary or rather psychological number of days that would. Would sit well with constituents until I know, you know, they go to the other side and really start blaming folks and getting angry. It's it's really hard to say, I think with down like this. It's really, you know, when voters start to feel it. Affecting them. Personally. You know, they're not getting if they're not able to go to work. If government services aren't working for them. That's when the French predation and the crusher from constituents increases significantly. I mean, I think it's important to remember and all of this. You know, I don't think that a government shutdown in January twenty nineteen it's going to be a significant campaign issue in November of twenty twenty. But, but it's it's just sort of emblematic of of the difficulty of these senators are going to face if they run for re election and kind of you know, they're just getting started in there in cycle year of in an inauspicious way. And you know, I I don't think we can put a date on it. I don't know if it lasts February continues for a couple more weeks. I'm sure the pressure on them will grow. But it really is just about impact of individual constituents and voters the more they feel it personally the more. They're going to be calling frustrated with their senators more that's going to put pressure on them. Like campaigns for election begin will these folks want or need President Trump's support? I guess there's there's that angle. Also. Yeah. Yeah. Absolutely. I mean, they're going to want President Trump support, or at least not what the President Trump the easiest way to get a Republican primary challenger and make your life very difficult to start your reelection bid is to say anything that frustrated the president. Or makes you think that you're not lie until they are going to be running this as allies of President Trump. But but it is as you said earlier, it's a it's a fine line. You know, they want to run dollars president trumpet, you know. They don't want to turn off independent voters who maybe don't support president James. That's James Arken at politico. Thirteen minutes now after the hour on This Morning, America's first news. Indeed knows it's hard to find qualified candidates when you're hiring. It's like finding a.
