I think that's a record since protests have started here, and it puts total arrest well over 700. Since you know this all started on May 28th Late last night. You know, yesterday morning, I should say that the mayor and the police chief, they welcome protesters downtown in a press conference, But that's even you know, as the National Guard was called in the FBI, the federal protective Services as well as a slew of local and state law enforcement as well, and protesters were met with barricades around downtown.

The Senate will likely soon take up the nomination of the next Supreme Court Justice, One of the many Republicans backing the president's push for that vote is West Virginia Senator Shelley Moore Capito, who's running for reelection against Democratic activist apology Swearengin. Let's take a look at that race for this week's here and now. Senate tracker Dave Mystic is senior reporter at West Virginia Public Broadcasting. He's in Morgantown. Dave. First. What's the state of this race? Well, you know, West Virginia has become a Republican stronghold in recent years, Capital first won the Senate seat in 2014, and since then, both on the state level in the federal races of sort of swung Republican, which is interesting because the state for decades and decades, 80 some years had been a Democratic stronghold. Looking ahead to this race. I think you know, it's clear to say that the Capito is would be a considered a favorite, giving that the political climate here she's also outraised. Apologies were engine by No 33 plus million dollars for this race, So it's safe to say that things were looking her direction right now, Except this year. You never know about anything, so we'll take a look at both. And start with Senator Moore Capito, who spoke with on your colleagues this month about the president's handling of the pandemic. Let's listen. If I had it to do over again for him. I would have been much more concise, clear to the American people. What the dangers are, how you could be effective in fighting the dangers and and be very honest with where we are any given time. So Dave, a little bit critical of President Trump there. What is she running on? Capitol was running on her record. She votes with her party 98.3% of the time. That's according to pro public has represent. Obviously, you know, she's tied herself to Trump as have most Republicans here in the state. She's running, you know, on her experience. And obviously right of center to West Virginians here, and we heard some criticism there. You say she's aligning herself with the president. What about filling the vacancy? I mean, she's in line, right? Right. So back in 2016, given the President Obama's nomination of Merrick Garland, Senator Capital, Actually, you know, argued that you know, before the Supreme Court justice was confirmed to a lifetime position. West Virginians and the American people should have the ability to weigh in at the ballot box. She basically turned it a 1 80 on that position following the death of justice forthe Bater Ginsberg last week and basically said that President Trump and the Republican Senate were both elected by the American people, and that they should be able to act to fill the Supreme Court vacancies. So a very different position. Apology and Swearengin has been taking aim at that. What apology calls as hypocrisy. We should say that that kind of flip flop hasn't seemed to bother the base the Republican base at all but the Democratic challenger Apology. Swearengin comes from a family of coal miners. And here, she lays out some of her campaign promises. In this ad way will have Medicare for all, we won't back. Damn! Until our workers heir protected.
