"And a Martinez in Culver City California Numbers from the CDC show nearly 67% of fully vaccinated people over the age of 65 have gotten a booster shot Pfizer and BioNTech want the FDA to authorize yet another one for that age group NPR health correspondent rob Stein says the idea is to bolster waning immunity It's become clear that the protection people get from three shots fades over time especially against catching the virus And that's especially true with omicron which is better at evading the immune system than earlier versions of the virus Now you know three shots still do a very good job of keeping most people from getting so sick they end up in a hospital or die but there has been rising concern about those who are the most vulnerable like the elderly They can have weaker immune systems to start with so some other countries have started giving older people yet another booster So what do you think I mean is the FDA likely to authorize another booster You know it really depends on how strong a case the agency thinks the companies are making It's based on two studies from Israel that are produced some evidence that a fourth shot could help pump the immune system back up and restore some protection against getting seriously ill I talked about this with doctor Eric Coppola Scripps research he's convinced there's enough evidence to warrant another round of boosters We need to move on this because there are a large number of people who have lost their protection against severe illness from omicron and future variants So topol thinks it's urgent to start making another booster available to the elderly especially in case omicron starts to surge again or another of dangerous variant emerges But not everyone is as convinced as doctor topol Yeah that's right That's right Many experts have been talking with basically say it may still be just too premature to start another round of boosters They say the Israeli data is far from a slam dunk that another shot is necessarily needed and would necessarily help Here's doctor Jesse Goodman He's a former FDA chief scientist who's now at Georgetown university I think you'd want to have really convincing evidence that a second booster was needed and beneficial and we just don't have that yet I don't think we know that a booster will not ultimately be required generally but I think we're just not there yet And some experts I talked to say the country should focus instead on getting the millions of people who are still not vaccinated at all to get their shots and get boosters into the arms of the millions of vaccinated people who still haven't gotten their third shots Only about two thirds of those aged 65 and older have gotten their third Chancellor boosters All right rob so what happens now The FDA will consider the request and make a decision the agency could ask a committee of outside advisers to give advice but it doesn't necessarily have to And one possibility is that the FDA authorizes the fourth shot and then leaves it up to the CDC about whether to recommend it or just have it ready for whatever the evidence becomes clear It's really needed The FDA is however planning to convene outside advisers next month to consider where we go from here with the vaccines more generally including whether we need a broader booster campaign perhaps in the fall that would include younger people too They may also discuss whether those shots should be annual or the same vaccine or something else like a vaccine targeted specifically at variants or maybe at protecting people against all coronaviruses As NPR health correspondent rob Stein rob thanks a lot You bet Oil prices are dropping they're now below a $100 a barrel so gas prices may soon drop too But as of the moment they're still near record highs So politicians are proposing gas tax holidays to give consumers a little relief at the pump This idea may seem good on paper but there are concerns that gas tax cuts could reduce the funding that's available to fix and replace crumbling roads and bridges Here's impairs David shaffer from Chicago The pain at the pump these days is palpable Gas prices are way too much you know people can afford this is ridiculous you know Harris Gonzalez is among those wince it as he pumps ten and a half gallons of gas on Chicago's northwest side There.

"Corruption and the problem here is that they are changing the rules. In a way they think is in their best interest to compete with stacey. Abrams and the reality is that they probably will get outmaneuvered by her. In this i get the concerns. I get the desires. I get the needs. I would be less hostile to it if they prohibited spinning primaries. I think their concerns about the republican party. Georgia are justified in warranted. And i think they've got to find a way forward around the state party bypassing the state party unless the state party and its chairman can prove that the state party is existing for all of the gop and not just the party chairman. I think that the republican party chairman and georgia Poisoned the well by rushing in to undermine the election in georgia november and essentially throwing the governor. The lieutenant governor the secretary of state under the bus. This is a continued fallout incompetence in consequence of what david shaffer did and the result is that you're going to see the republican party in georgia essentially go belly up from lack of funding as the rest of the party. Vote for this as a no confidence. Measure against david. Shafer in the gop. Again though i think that the republicans have gotta put a provision in that. The money can't be used in primaries at least for the legislative ones. Let let the so going to allow the democrats to create one for governor. The minority party will get one for governor and the majority party. You'll get one for governor. If the if they want to use the money for the gubernatorial primaries go for it but the legislative ones. I don't think should be used in primaries. If only because i know exactly what the speaker of the house is going to do. And frankly i know what some of the legislative leaders in the senate would wanna do as well and it'll be targeting conservatives and driving them out and we need more conservatives not less conservatives particularly when redistricting comes were going to have redistricting upon us august..

"David Loose but why did david produce david. Purdue didn't lose because he took a camera phone away from someone. David purdue did not lose because he didn't show up for debate with jon ossoff who gave him the. How dare you old man deal. And david produce didn't handle it badly gave me. Nobody cared about that stuff. Nobody cared about that stuff. David purdue lost because david shaffer and brian and donald campaign terrell estate saying that it was stolen and democrats. We're gonna steal it again. If brian kemp didn't do something and the result was a whole bunch of people decided that there was no point in going to vote. And so you had four hundred. Plus thousand republicans sit on the sidelines handing john also a victory of barely. Fifty two thousand votes purdue can win this thing he could also unite the gop. The suburban non trump republicans voted for purdue over trump produce got more votes than any republican ever on the ballot in georgia. Suburban voters actually came back to him by six points in the run off. Compared to the general they liked the guy. If david purdue runs david purdue nada as donald trump's best friend. I think david perdue wins in twenty twenty two. I think that wore knock is going to be in a very difficult place as the democrats. Continue to radicalize the republicans. Mitch mcconnell very shrewdly will force or knock into difficult votes for example. Tom cotton has already thrown a vote out there about packing. The supreme court and warnock voted in favor of packing the supreme court. He's now on record on that issue or knock is also in favor of impeach. Donald trump that will inspire people From the president's ide actually turn out and vote for vengeance. The president will push them to do that. and raphael warnock is not a business man and we are probably headed into a recession. And david purdue has a businessman's head on shoulders. He's able to talk about those issues. I think he should do it. I'm gonna i i. I've reached out to his team. And said i think you should do it. Listen other people may stand up and say oh this is a good guy too yes killing off where may want to do it in. And if she does god lesser. I personally you know. Let me let me address this real quick..

"I said the whole time purdue was going to do better than left turns out i was right on that the thing i and everyone else missed was how badly the republican turnout would be. Purdue will do better than leffler but he will still lose. They haven't called the race yet but there aren't enough votes outstanding for him. Unless you've got another situation where floyd county or or Peachtree city per fayette county left left ballots out there. I don't think he's going to get into the margin of of automatic recount. Here the problem of for leffler though is that she failed to define herself authentically and she came across as not real. And i can't tell you the number of people who have told me this. I can't tell you the number of people who have said repeatedly that she just didn't connect she just didn't come across as sincere and and that's a real problem for politician you when you don't come across as sincere And this is. This is this. Is the problem here is you. Can't run for election running to win the win. The primary and essentially the twenty one person jungle election was the primary it was her versus collins and she ran a way that used identity politics and trump identity politics to pick off doug collins in a way that then ensured that she could not win the actual run off now. She couldn't win the runoff. We can now see in hindsight because the republicans were gonna turn out and vote the president sabotage the election. As did david shafer the party chairman. Both of them Running around telling everyone the race was rigged. Brad ravensburg was in the tank for stacey. Abrams will it cost him the election. Overall purdue and leffler could've one had The president david shaffer and and these republican congressman from georgia. Not run around the state telling everyone. The election was rigged. They could've one absolutely could one. This was a suicide. it wasn't a murder. The democrats didn't defeat republicans. Repeal republicans defeated themselves but leffler could have been a stronger candidate. And i just think it's bad for him for her. 'cause i really doubt believes that any way to go to washington today and object to the electoral college vote after having lost last night. Raphael warnock is going to be the senator from state of georgia for two years.

"In georgia and republican operatives tied to the campaign decided that they had to embrace the crazy because otherwise the voters would be mad at them for dropping the ball. They dropped the ball. They did not participate. They did not observe. They did not show up. They were given the opportunity to and the secretary of state's office confirms they were told if any local government tries to shut you out of the process. Let us know and we will force them to allow you to observe. They never did. They were never there. It is excuse making david shaffer of the republican party. That's what's going on here. They could have observed the process and chose not to and when the president's team came out and said we think that the absentee ballots are where the fraud is then the republican party so well we were shut out of the process. We were allowed to observe. No you were allowed to observe. You chose not to and now you don't want the voters turning on you. So you're blaming the secretary state and everyone else to adb obvious gate that it was your fault that you didn't participate but the bottom line is this the signatures on the applications were checked and then the ballot signatures were checked. It is a public process. Anyone could observe it. The republicans both the trump campaign team and the republican party georgia chose not to observe it and now they would rather you believe it did not happen because they did not see it then have to admit that it did happen but they chose not to go watch it but what actually happened. The truth of the matter is the signatures were matched and the republicans chose not to watch it and now they would rather concoct a conspiracy theory than admit they themselves were asleep but it doesn't matter whether they were asleep or not. The process happened signatures. Were matched was no fraud there. That's not to say there can't be fraud. it's not to say there isn't fraud but it is to say that the signatures were matched to the gb. I system is. It is to say that. The applications which aren't required to be matched were matched and then the ballots themselves rematch as well to the system and no one person could reject about it required to people to reject it. Now you can say well. What if there were to rip. The democrats rejected republican ballots. Well what if there were two republicans objecting democratic ballots. The process is dependent on observers and the democrats chose to observe the process and the republicans chose not to observe the process and l. The republicans want you to believe that there was no observation process to observe. And that's simply not the case. It's excuse making people who dropped the ball who now want to concoct a crazy conspiracy theory so that they can avoid having to take blame for screwing it up themselves. And that's unfortunate. It's not your fault you really believe these people in these people are actually not telling you the truth. You know this is well first of all the phone number if you want to call him before the program and feel free to ask if you can even disagree with me. The phone number is eight.

"Certified the state's election results after a recount confirmed once again, Democrat Joe Biden defeated President Trump in the state. This wall. The runoff election is to determine the control of the Senate looms large next month. In an interview with Salem Radio Networks, the Mike Gallagher show Georgia Republican Party chair David Shaffer says Democrats here Hoping to use the January elections in Georgia to change the direction of America. This is the most important and consequential election in our lifetimes, and the Democrats have been take. The Democratic Party has been taken over by the angriest people in America. They're angry for about different things and for different reasons, but they're united in one common belief that America is not a force for good in the world.

"And so there's a sense that is there a sense this is January fits an odd time to have an election in the past. Why there was Saxby Chambliss. Or others. That was pretty obvious. The more responsible voter votes Republican so they're more likely to vote January the fifth and then someone else. But to me, this is the most critical Senate election, maybe in American history, because if the leftist if they can't be stopped in Georgia if Georgia votes for socialism if Georgia votes for virtual communism And the rest of the countries. I have such respect for Georgia, that of George and say we want left wing ideologues to hook up with AOC. Then George is not the Georgia that I know in the George that, you know. Do you have great faith that the people of Georgia can figure this thing out? I am confident that we will pull together in the end and win this election. But look if they are successful in inaugurating Joe Biden is the president. Even though we picked up seats in the house, they still control the House of Representatives. These two run off elections will decide. Which party controls the Senate. If the Democrats take control of both houses of Congress and the White House, then they will admit every island territory is a state with two United States senators, they will they will expand the Supreme Court. We will never recover from the damage they intend to rob on our country. I watched a few days ago in interview with Stacey Abrams, who, by the way, I don't think she's considered yet the Senate race, the governor, camping media kept and incentivizing her after Two years do not concede the race, which, by the way is the same thing, Hillary Clinton said. About a month two months ago, she told Joe Biden, the presidency of Trump is illegitimate. Never concede. Everyone forgets about those comments. But Stacey Abrams has said there's 750,000 absentee ballots flooding the polling places. Is that true? And if so, how many overwhelmingly your Democratic Republican That's not actually true what she's saying. But But you do make a good point. I mean, she was celebrated for refusing to concede an election that she lost by a bigger margin. Then Joe Biden carried Georgia. Arizona and Wisconsin combined. And now she pretends that you know anyone who points out of regulars. This election is crazy, but which, but there have under Georgia law. If you request an absentee ballots in the primary for the general election, and you mark as the reason for that ballot that you're over the age of 65, you are automatically sent a Palate for the runoff. And so there's about 700,000 people who are automatically getting ballots, so those were not people that she's flooded to request absentee ballots. That's just the natural. Carryover from the general primary elections, and it's there's a slight edge among Democrats. But you know, almost half of those people are our Republicans. Now. She you know she, you know she's got a machine and it zwart hard. But she is, um She's exaggerating her successes. Did you have a sense of November 3rd that Georgians voted for? On balance? Joe Biden legitimately. David Shaffer. You're the chair of the Georgia Republican State Party. What was that? A fair election. And the Joe Biden win the state of Georgia. Look they have produced and and Donald Trump got approximately the same number of votes. Um Joe Biden got 100,000 more votes than Jon Ossoff's. And that is hard to understand. Um, I'll tell you that we that we have uncovered multiple irregularities with the election on election night insulting county, which is the, um Jenny, where Atlantis located. They there at the vote Counting center they announced at 10 30. They were going to stop voting counting votes, and they would start back up in 8 30 the next morning. And our monitors went home. Our poll watchers one home and assumes they were gone. They started back up kind of bounce, and they can't until one in the morning. And how is that legitimate? How is that legal? It's not legal, because under Georgia law, you're required to count the votes you know, in the presence of the public, but the news crews went home. The monitors went home. The public went home and they started back up tempting. And so it's difficult to have confidence in the outcome of an election so close when they're when there are regularities of that type taking place. Um, um, without any sort of accountability at all. We file that today we filed a complaint with the secretary of State on that. On that matter there, we found at the David said eight different counties Voter review panels, which are responsible for adjudicating absentee ballots of the mark in a way that's unclear. Those voter review panels met without the Republican member being notified are allowed to attend the, um when we when we ask for the part of the machines The and paying count of the ballots that we were limited to one monitor for every 10 counting tables. Uh, anyone anyone in one county for the first day of the of the audit are monsters were told they couldn't stand still for more than 15 seconds. They had to constantly remain in motion, and that is not a meaningful Opportunity to view the work of the auditors, and it just Does not a source of continuing concern to May and Chairman David Schafer. Why wouldn't the same thing happened January the 5th and 6th. Then why would the same thing happened? If they pull? It pulled a fast one on November? 3rd? Why wouldn't the same thing happened? January 5th when so much is on the line. Um so we were. We were during the general election. We were not able to obtain a bulletin Well, I mean, let me back up about talk about something. I didn't even mention. Um, when, when someone votes by absentee and the absentee ballots, um, increased from 200,000 to 1.3 million. From 2 2018 to 2020. They're supposed to verify the signatures, and we asked for a bulletin from the secretary of state that would have allowed our poll watchers to view the verification process and never received it. And so that was conducted. In secret. You know, we've We've obtained a a bulletin that allows us to watch that process down. I think you will see litigation filed this week. Um, that will attempt to secure Um, court orders allowing that verification and we are doubling and redoubling our, um, our efforts toe Tonto to monitor the election and, frankly, the president's election challenges here in Georgia. Aka produce of good results. It'll strengthen our position as we move into the runoff. Are you very confidence that chair of the Georgia Republican Party that Purdue and Leffler were actually win, in fact win by a wide margin? It's gonna be close. But I am optimistic that we're gonna be able to pull everyone together and turn out the vote that we need that the president's help to elect them both on January and it begins this Saturday, doesn't it When the president visits the big dog is coming to the peach tree state and the president needs to come there three or four times, especially maybe the Saturday before the election, maybe January, 2nd or third or Sunday before the election. He needs to come and say, This is the redemption of my presidency if we lose Is this? Everything we've worked for? Please save my presidency by voting Republican. I think that'd be a great message, which I passed on Eric Trump about three days ago. This has got to be my legacy. My presidency is on the line. Don't fail me. They will erase all of his accomplishments. There is no question about it if they succeed in winning these thieves to Senate seats, So that's great message. I'm glad you're advising the Trump family. All right, David Shaffer, you're the best good luck in Georgia. Because of Georgia goes the Democratic Party. The country will no longer exist to be the land of the free and the home of the brave because there's so much is on the line. And thank you very much. David Schaper for coming on the Bill Cunningham show maybe a couple nights before the election. We can do it again. Comeback. Thanks so much, my friend.

"Morning news which will be shortly after this this program it off all night that's right so the the fifth presidential debate has concluded now right here in Atlanta Georgia Tyler Perry studios now they obviously had it in Georgia for a very good reason because our state is very much in play the Democrats believe at least to the in campaign twenty twenty so they have come here tonight to try to make a splash make an impression the big question is what do you think and that's why we have brought this crew together tonight to get the first impressions it's there is that what counts and we want to find out the winners losers good quotes bad quotes is the field finally gonna start to narrow down that that's a big question I think because you saw a lot of the front runners you sell Joe Biden you sell as before to get a lot of attention early on I think they definitely kind of dominated the the the time on camera the first hour or thirty minutes the very least I was a little more curious to see with the the other candidates are gonna do the ones that are kind of trailing in the polls and see if any of them were able to make you know impact with with the viewers of people listening to people watching and I guess that's the first question is did any particular candidate really kinda stand out and and kind of get your tension ma'am I know that you know we were talking earlier about any clover shar and the fact that she's one that you know I I saw an interview with her and she said she hasn't had that social media moment that Twitter moment where it's you know at you know just the everybody's been talking about baby should have that tonight but did you know did she have some moments tonight where she got a stuck out well so much for mid western nice that's right of moments where she threw some shade not glitter and so I do think she had some tweet a bowl moments definitely yeah I think that's definitely true this is Gerry Enomoto by the way with the microphone say hello hello thanks for having me tonight guys Jerry was actually checking the Twitter all all during the time and Chloe char was getting some attention but Tulsi Gabbard was actually the top trending candidate on the stage for most of the night it's funny for the last couple of debates she's been the highest trend and I think we all have a speculation as to why that is but I will say it so I think I I think it's interesting that was full of band let's see yeah this yes that their their people on Twitter that go on there for other reasons for that but regardless use the top turning candidate followed by Tom sire for most the night which is surprising that was a little surprising to I add that times tires when this guy didn't get a lot of time but now I guess when he did he he made the most of it I don't know they they change the rules for these obviously each time to make it tougher and tougher to make it to the next cut but we still thought ten people on the stage tonight you know the field is just not shrinking and in fact we've had a couple people as you folks know actually get into the race rather than get out in the last week or so so let's ask the group here was anybody's mind made up tonight's where you think the feel my finally narrows anybody here been able to make a final decision you think tonight I wanted to get back to the closure I've watched couple these debates I think that if you kind of if you look at her your eyes closed and it wasn't such a visual spectacles as debates tend to be she seems to be the most consistent in our messaging and she seems to be a better alternative to a centrist candidate like Biden because she just she has a little bit more of a clear message so I think that's does this come the bigger the bigger issue with the the whole debate spectacles they were looking for those moments for looking for those really polished visuals and it's just that's not we're really appeals to me is a motor I IV and she's a god green she's the one stop the most cannot somebody ice so I do agree that tolls but on any clover star stuck out the most tonight she has in like like was mentioned before she has she's a better alternative to a centrist candidate like biting you know people make have concerns about you know his age or whatnot but and a nickel to shore she has a record of being moderate pragmatic and she has an electability argument to make Joe Biden makes an electability argument as well a nickel wish our has won in Minnesota three times with three times with over sixty percent of the vote she knows how to win in the Midwest and I think she can help us win states like Wisconsin and Pennsylvania and Michigan back you know those states that we lost in two thousand sixteen our man what's your name my name is some Niles how old are you eighteen eighteen to be your first time to a vote for president yes it will be yeah that's exciting I love the age difference all over this group yeah I mean I think it's fantastic I think it's great you know yes you're right we're all we're all eighteen that would be nice that would be nice I know we're gonna play some cuts by the way about the some these can is what they said right AT clover star had a moment as well of what she had to say with with Stacy Abrams to which will get to an old there were some one liners they all they we got in several mentions of George is not including there at the at the very end talking about voters to prevent actually managed to tie together voter suppression and the heart be bill and Stacey Abrams should be governor that's quite a bit to get into one thing let me ask again if anybody's final mind was made up tonight because it's really interesting all these guys hang on just enough to get to the next one they all have just enough of a moment in these things to carry on and I thought that we probably saw that again tonight so did anybody make up their mind who to vote for tonight in the in the primary I wouldn't say that it's been definitively made out yeah but it hasn't been changed I came into this is a warm supporter and I've remained at and it's basically or largely due to the depths of her plans and I know that's put her up to be a target for attacks because of her plans because it's out there from a lot of the other candidates I I hear things that I like and I support but a lot of more vague they're very vague and they're generally in the right direction nothing that would really surprise you on a democratic debate but they they lacked the substance and I think her coming out so early with those detailed plans make her stand out from the others with that said I agree with some of the other points made here night club which are made some very good points and really stood out tonight but I will and also been following Kamel Harris of like a lot of things she said and she's got a lot of attackers as well but largely behind on my mind hasn't changed on worn at this point even though she didn't have a big moment tonight really it's been more of what we've heard from her before were you surprised you took some she took some early shots I guess from the candidates in the last twenty minutes of the debate which is not surprising giving you know where she's come up in the standings over the past month or so and also I think it's goes back to the plan she's put herself out there with the detail of her plans there while the others have details they don't go to that level of depth and me that makes her target but it also puts her up well there was something to really discuss in either rally around our point now right one less explained our group here that we have but tonight this is a forum of civilians who I guess you all volunteer right did you all answer our our solicitations who agreed to come in and watch the debate tonight these are or will be democratic primary voters here in Georgia and then give us their thoughts and we put this together with our partners at the Atlanta journal constitution and man it's late who's usually in bed by now man me too I mean and this fellow for sure yes absolutely that is so it's a it's important because Georgie is in play very much so we had an exchange just today on our news about the reason the debate was here and then the democratic the market he said that yes it's because George is so much in play and the Trumbull county that was on the news has no it's just proof that they are are trying to hold some semblance here because trump has proven so popular I guess we will see that and that is gonna be one one part I was anyone surprised that that Georgia that Atlanta got one of these debates because I I you know I thought that that George is considered a battleground state by many owned yesterday is a battleground state owned we've seen over recent you know over recent elections than margins have narrowed in narrowed in their old and what is usually a safe Republican state and we've seen counties like when that county in Cobb county used to be conservative strongholds they have shifted dramatically to the left over the last few years they both voted for Hillary Clinton in two thousand sixteen after voting for Mitt Romney so you know a lot of these metro Atlanta suburban counties are dramatically shifting to the left even in congressional districts like the six those you know Tom price Newt Gingrich stronghold it is now held by Lucent bath the seventh district another competitive congressional districts suburban affluent it is now competitors so yes Georgia is a swing state the numbers are changing the argument about voter suppression aside it's true that the gubernatorial race was just razor close one reason for having this here tonight is all all these Democrats really have to do is impress a few more people and expand its blue yeah along those lines I would I would say that as much as David Shaffer probably wouldn't want to admit it Georgia is a battleground state because I think if everyone would agree that Ohio is and I believe George's gubernatorial was closer than Ohio's so to try and spend it as not a battleground state is I think absurd and and a sign of fear that the state will in fact flip yeah and I know I talk to you before we went on the air and you know you have your eye on one at county I'm from what I county it's changed a lot over the last twenty years it leave it over the last five years or so yeah yeah I'm I'm right now I'm I'm working for a county commission can there Kirklin card which is saying that statement in general that I I candidate in Gwinnett county could have staff for eight years ago would have been insane but you know he's raised over his race tens of thousands of dollars and is already elected so I think going out as a whole is poised to flip and once when that goes in Cobb is leaning that direction I think the Republicans have to really be worried what's your name map lately and how old are you twenty one twenty one so L. twenty one G. R. A. I. X. right we're getting older and older right so that makes this your first presidential election I voted in the twenty sixteen the general okay very good I'm terrible at math terrible at math okay we're were you guys surprised that base opened it with the impeachment we had one of our talk show host this evening make the point that these these primary debates are intended for you guys they're not necessarily for the mass audience these debates are intended for democratic primary voters that's the audience of these candidates are trying to impeach a reach I assume you all would not to mind seeing the impeachment be successful general survey yeah okay just as just as a general thing so what's the point of spending the first ten minutes on a did you take anything out of that they all said pretty much the same thing yeah I I was not surprised by the fact that they led with so much trump centric rhetoric I was her term maybe by it I think that again to your point we all are in lock arms with our stance in mode and promote the most part on the impeachment preaching to the choir never met before yeah it doesn't that doesn't do anything for me I got I'm we're all gonna go vote for whoever wins the prime whoever winds up on the democratic side it's trying to reach try to reach those kind of more casual voters I think with with them a message to get them out of their comfort zone and kind of get them to the polls that like World War the polls that but a lot of people are so how do we get them motivated I think speaking more about yourself and what you can do verses what he's doing terribly that's well documented like we don't need anymore of that there's plenty of trump fatigue nationally I am there's getting to be more from fifteen within the party in my opinion so it's about a quarter after here and this is our post debates of focus group round table with no table you got that pretty cushy chairs tonight that's impressive he does it was very comfortable I know you can get the plastic chairs that we usually get you're blocking me one step to the left thank you no no no you are watching either on the WSB radio dot coms Facebook live or on the land journal constitution the agency's Facebook live and we're on the.

they obviously had it in Georgia for a very good reason because our state is very much in play the Democrats believe at least the in campaign twenty twenty so they have come here tonight to try to make a splash make an impression the big question is what do you think and that's why we have brought this crew together tonight to get the first impressions it's there is that what counts and we want to find out the winners losers good quotes bad quotes is the field finally gonna start to narrow down that that's a big question I think because you saw a lot of the front runners you sell Joe Biden you sell is the morning a lot of attention early on I think they definitely got kind of dominated the the the time all right on camera the first hour or thirty minutes the very least I was a little more curious to see with the the other candidates were gonna do the ones that are kind of trailing in the polls and see if any of them were able to make it you know impact with with the viewers of people listening to people watching and I guess that's the first question is did any particular candidate really kinda stand out and and kind of get your tension ma'am I know that you know we were talking earlier about any clover shar and the fact that she's one that you know I I saw an interview with her and she said she hasn't had that social media moment that Twitter moment where it's you know it you know just the everybody's been talking about maybe should have that tonight but did you know did she have some moments tonight we're she kind of stuck out well so much for mid western nice that's right of moments where she threw some shade not glitter and so I do think she had some tweet herbal moments definitely yeah I think that's definitely true this is Gerry Enomoto by the way with

And they're going to do their best. The Democrats are to try to claim that it's all related together. Treatment of women and on and on goes, man, go Roulston is going to be a huge liability. He really is. And there are some members of the statehouse who behind the scenes or circulate letters of support for him. But by and large an. A number of them really wish. Someone would save them from themselves, and that's kind of troubling. When you think about it that you have members of the state house who know Rolston needs to go are too scared of him to do something themselves, and they are desperate for a Brian Kip. Jeff Duncan led coalition to publicly say or privately clo- Rawson to the governor's mansion in say, it's time for you to go. You're going to weigh down. I can't stress enough to you that Republicans must do well next year on the ballot. They must why because of redistricting whoever wins next year is going to draw the lines for the next decade in Georgia. So Republicans have to win they've got to keep the legislature in order to draw the lines. But there are going to be some really close races in the suburbs. This also impacts the state party chairman's race. I wonder if either of the Scott Johnson from Cobb County and former looted gouzer alumnae in states that are David Roulston running for state party chair. Now, Scott Johnson is a great guy. And he would make a great party chairman. I'm supporting I don't have a vote in the matter, but David Ralston, I've been David Ross David Shaffer, and I've been friends forever. And I would gladly support David Schafer. I think he would be natural at the job given his background his years about its end. The fact that he was an executive director of the state party back in the day. When Republicans started making gains in the state. Whoever is the state party chairman, though, are they going to sit up, you know, it would not surprise me. If somebody stood up and tried to force one of them to take position on this. Listen, it's going to be alive. Ilise, you everybody knows it's going to be a liability issue. The only people who don't think it's going to be liability issue or the people who privately no is going to be liability issue or but are too scared of David Ralston to say so one of those guys stand up and say he needs to go. It's going to be very interesting to see particularly with state party convention coming up in two weeks. Now, I need to switch gears to something local, hyper local if you will but relevant. There is a meeting coming up in fifteen minutes in hushed in of the city council. Chris Joyner of the JC has a story out today. The mayor of hush then allegedly withheld a job candidate from consideration for city administrator because he's black. AJC investigation is they've dug in on this. And there are two members of city council who say that this happens happened the candidate. Well, you know, what I don't wanna drag him into the news is not his fault. He was discriminated against. But he said that as a black man applied for executive government positions as most other sales. He's not shocked. If this was the case, he didn't recall hearing, the mayor make any statements that suggest prejudice or hostility. But let me read you this. The mayor reportedly made her comments to a member of the hushed city council. Inner overheard whispered or at a closed-door session of the council may fourth councilwoman hope weeks said the mayor repeated them to her in the parking lot after the meeting, according to a document released by the city. The mayor proceeded to tell me that the candidate was real good. But he was black and we don't have a large black population. And she just didn't think Kush was ready for it. So apparently, the mayor of hushed thinks that the people of hosted are a bunch of racists..
