I mean, when we think about the beginning of our country, right, this we This was all Indian land before it was over the United States before it was ever colonized continent by the Europeans when they came over here. In the late 14 hundreds. We are wherever you're sitting in the United States. You're sitting on Indian land. Thie United States happened because of genocide of of Indian tribes all over the country, starting on the east coast, coming up from the southwest, and everywhere in between. And so I think that we all that is our history. We have to recognize that we that we have different histories. Different historical traumas are indigenous folks, you know that they've had We've had incredible struggles, and in fact I mentioned the genocide of Indians that was a precursor to how people would treat the African slaves who eventually became our African American populations with violence and unspeakable horror, so I think in that sense, yes. We're different than a lot of other communities who who came over after a lot of this happened.

That this disconnect that we all feel with our members of congress right now with just congress in general that it's getting it's that connection is starting to disappear a little bit more.

So now in the speakers lobby. So it was around this time the ice snuck in myself to the house press gallery balcony, and I couldn't help noticing. How really different the energy the appearance were on the two sides of the house on the democratic side. It was youthful and loud and a little kind of chaotic children running around. And there was kind of. See of clothing there was a Palestinian through a Muslim head scarf. That was a Pueblo address and on the Republican side by comparison, it it was really kind of stark. Yeah. It was pretty striking. I mean, I think part of it is just the demographics of the new democratic class, and you know, the democratic caucus has already pretty diverse. But this new infusion of members really made that a lot more pronounced. And they made a point today of like really strutting that displaying that. Well, I mean, Deb, Holland who is the first native American woman in congress made a point of wearing her traditional Pueblo drafts with the moccasins and like the beautiful turquoise and silver jewelry, and you know, she did that because she was making a statement. And, you know, the first Palestinian member more her as you mentioned Thole, and again, that's not something she wears every day. But it's because they wanted to take note of this moment and have the world take note of this moment that you know, this is different. Is a different face of congress. And on the Republican side. It was a lot of men in business suits and ties and women in like solid colored sensible business dresses, and then you know, the mood. I think was also just more somber. They're losing the majority and they're much less relevant in the current environment divided government pursuant to law and precedent. The next order of business is election of the speaker of the house of representatives. So basically, not kind of unfolded for a while until they got to the point where they had enough members present on the floor nominations are now in order to actually start the little the clerk recognizes the gentlemen from New York, mister, Geoffrey, Geoffrey, who's the head of the democratic caucus gets up to make his nominating speech.

"Another important thing about Presley is that she's talked in the past about being a survivor of sexual assault. She was in college. And I think that's really important for the fact that one of the criticisms that we've heard about the metoo movements and from an ISM around, you know, sexual assault is that it hasn't been fully inclusive. All though, the metoo movement was initially launched by Toronto Burke, who's also black woman following that. One of the criticisms is that it has not been inclusive to the experiences of women of color. So I think that someone at Presley's level with herbs ability in her. Leadership. It's really important that she's being open about this. And I think that's really admirable. Now. I don't think that women are required to do this. Right. I think that having women where they're paying on their sleeves reshare their personal experiences so publicly it should not be a requirement. But I think that when it is done, especially by a black woman, especially by a woman of color, a woman who's election is historic. You know, I think that that's valuable beyond words, and I from one appreciate it. One of the things that I admire most about Presley is hell unapologetically progressive. She is. I mean, all the women that I've talked about our progressive. Right. But she talks about issues that I haven't heard many leaders at her level discuss. For instance, she's talked about the decriminalization and legalization of marijuana. And you know as spread across the country. She's talked about the need to make sure that minorities are included in profits from that industry. And that isn't something that I've heard often from leaders at her level. I think that because. Of her focus in because of her experiences in her infancy. I think that she's going to bring something very special to the house of representatives. When I imagine I enter Presley in her per Hades, beautiful braids in Ilhan, Omar in her job on the floor of the house in really move all of the intersecting identities that these women bring together, I find it really beautiful in moving. I'm really came forward to this new congress when I think about this beautiful coalition of women the new members the veterans in all their strengths coming together. I'm just beside myself with excitement, you know, they're going to disagree at times, you know, the views and their their styles won't, always align. And they're going to fight in different ways. Nobody think it would be really healthy for us as a party to move to a place where we're all fine with that. I mean, what else can we do, you know? But I've seen these women and I've seen what they can do. And I've seen them in action. And I know the we are in the best hands. So the point I wanted to make with this episode. It's not just about having a majority in the house. Although that's important. It's about who's in majority. The historic number of women. You know, these women have personal experience with gun violence with the pain and struggle of being a refugee, you know, they have personal ties immigration native, American Muslim black lesbian veterans. The intersection of identities of these women going to the house of representatives is so powerful. So so powerful. So here are their names Lucy MC bath Abigail span. Burger Jennifer Ston, Elaine Loria should we stay? It's where she needed to leave Alana, mar Deb Holland, and there's so many more remember those things because I have a feeling you're going to hear from them. I'm believe they're going to transform the country, by the way, if this up so feels incomplete I agree. I want do another segment on women of color, both those who've been elected and also about the electorate, you know, how women of color voted in this past election. When I think about this collection of women. I can barely contain my excitement. I'm so excited to see where we're going. Thank you so much for listening. I hope you enjoyed this episode.

"I think it's not something we necessarily could have anticipated. If we were to get our crystal balls out after the sixteen election that healthcare would be such a dominant force, and it's really both because so many Americans are affected by this particularly women and are women candidates are shining examples of people running on healthcare stories personal healthcare stories, in many cases. But it's also the fact that one of the. The very first things Republican congress did with seek to undo the Affordable Care Act including protections for things like pre existing conditions. That's playing out in a huge way in the Missouri. Senate race or Josh Holly has been on the wrong side of the people of Missouri on pre existing conditions and Claire mccaskill has stuck with them. We've seen candidates actually get into races because of healthcare. I mentioned Lauren Underwood earlier running in Illinois fourteen she's a nurse. She's a pre existing healthcare condition. Her member of congress. I represented Halpern said he would not vote to take away protections for pre existing conditions. And then he did. And she said, well, I'm gonna run against you. Now, she's in a position where she can win. So I think it resonates because American people are affected by it every day, but also because Republicans from day one and Donald Trump made it their priority to take away those protections. And that that sets up an undeniable difference that I think is going to drive a lot of voters to vote for Democrats this fall, well, you can see that. Because even Republicans now are running advertisements about pre existing conditions in Missouri. It's been really quite something to see the Holly advertisements talking about how he will protect preexisting conditions. His record speaks for itself, though. Really? And I think his repeated attack on healthcare, particularly women's reproductive health. You can't separate those things you can't rewrite history at this point. And Claire mccaskill is running the kind of campaign where she's going to hold him accountable. And she has a lot of help to do it. Okay. We talked before taping a little bit about our shared main ties, and my Facebook feed is filled with friends and relatives talking about whether Senator Susan Collins is in trouble if she decides to run for election in twenty twenty due to her vote in favor of confirming Justice Brad Kavanagh, where do you fit into that calculus? And what are your plans? There's been a little bit of talk about what you might be thinking about doing it twenty twenty. I am one hundred percent focused on this November November of two thousand eighteen and electing a record number of women in Maine and all across the country. And then I think after that are. Sights will shift towards twenty twenty and myself and some incredible people across the state of Maine. We'll have that conversation with our family with our friends with our communities, and and really take another look at twenty twenty. But until then it's one hundred percent focus on two thousand eighteen we'll staying with that team Senator Grassley has promised that he will help raise three million dollars for Susan Collins to help stave off any challenges. And he's described Collins Collins is harsher critics as radical reaction. That's mirrors language, we've seen from the president this week trying to re reframe passionate. Shakily women, but women and men across the country who've been speaking out about their anger, and frustration and sadness and a lot of cases related to the Cavanaugh vote. That language is is really nothing more than attempt to distract from the fact that there's a lot of Americans who are actually scared right now that the cavenaugh hearings works from attic for millions of Americans who've been who are survivors of sexual assault and sexual violence, and that they live in communities all across this country, including Maine, and I think it's the cabinet hearings are not going to go away right at the congress is going to get elected this fall. I believe Democrats will be in the majority and the cabinet hearings are not going to go away. Whether you're going to see that play out in Maine, you're going to see that play out in South Carolina. You're going to see that play out in Iowa. It's gonna be everywhere. And I think American people will will remember Emily's list executive director, Emily Kane on C Span's, newsmakers, five minutes left. Well, we can't not talk about Nancy Pelosi and how she fits into races that are going on now. And how what her future might hold? What are your thoughts on Nancy Pelosi as a potential returning speaker? Are there other candidates that you think I should think about getting into the mix to steer Pelosi thoughts? Well, you know, I am Emily's list. We are focused on putting the congress in a position where we can even have a conversation about getting back the gavel for speaker. And I believe that Nancy Pelosi wakes up every day thinking about the same thing about making sure that the Democrats are in the majority. So that then we get to have that conversation. We have to give credit to leader Pelosi for her time as speaker for being an incredible leader for Democrats during a very difficult time, and it will be up to the new congress, including her what the next step is for the leadership, but candidates are being asked during the campaign whether or not they will support her in that position they are. And and that's no surprise, right? That that was. The same in two thousand fourteen in two thousand sixteen. It's a natural question for candidates to get. And you know, what I know? And we're talking to our candidates is they're all answering in the best way. That is best for them for their race for their district, and is reflective of conversations they're having with real people with real voters from their communities about the kind of leadership they want to have in congress and that really runs the gamut across the country. There have been there have been a lot of reports recently about potential barriers to voting, particularly among minority communities. There's a story this week out of Georgia about more than fifty thousand voters mostly African Americans whose applications for voter registration have been suspended because their identification or application didn't match other records in state and federal government. Is minority recruitment a a policy priority for Emily's list. And and what are you how does minority recruitment fit into your overall strategy of electing more women and is voter suppression in voting rights are those priorities forty this year. What are you doing about it? Well, let's start this quickly. What's happening in Georgia? Stacey abrams. I think it's no it's no accident that suddenly we're having this conversation about held up. Registrations for African American voters as we are looking to elect the first African American woman has governor in our country's history. Stacey Abrams is tied in those polls in Georgia. No one ever thought that could be possible. But I've known Stacey Abrams for a lot of years. There's a friend of mine, and she's been a friend of Emily's list for a long time. And I know that she knows what's going on in Georgia. And so this is completely ridiculous. It's not an accident. I'm glad people not only Stacey and her team. But also nonpartisan sore. Are getting involved to say this is wrong, and we need to take action. But when we think about the importance of diversity in our elected office for Emily's list. That has always been a priority. Forty percent of the women we've helped to elect in our history have been women of color, and we know we need to do even more. We're on track. This election cycle to elect not one. But two of the first native American women ever to be elected to the US congress. Deb, Holland and cherise, David Lee. Not know this Texas has never sent a Latina to congress, and we will send to at least this year, Veronica Escobar and Sylvia Garcia. This is the result of deliberate recruitment efforts by Emily's list and other partner organizations to get these women in these races early and on the ground in primaries that will continue to be a priority for us. And I believe that is what the American people should want inch expect we have time for one last question by the Evan. Well, I have to ask about twenty twenty again. Are there candidates? We hear about lots of different democratic potential candidates. Are there a couple of people that you think would really keep women excited and engaged in the upcoming election thinking to twenty twenty I'm aware of four women whose names come up a lot. You've probably heard them. They're all in the US Senate Senator Warren closure, Harris and jello brand. And I'm sure there will be more. It's amazing to us an exciting for us Emily's list to think that there could be multiple pro choice democratic women launching serious campaigns for president. And I'm sure there will be a large number of great men who will run as well. We're lucky as Democrats to have such a broad and diverse number of people taking a look at taking on Donald Trump in twenty twenty. But again, it's only a brief conversation happening right now where we can get to that conversation. The way we want to unless we have big wins this fall where will you be on election night? I think I think I'm going to be here. My travel schedule has been changing by the day. I'm headed to Illinois. I know I'm going to New York. I'm going to something else. Got added today. I'm not sure Virginia for sure we have staff all over the country in the home stretch. I think I'll be here in DC. And I've got my list ready to check off all the winds as they come in. Well, thank you for being here this week on C Span's newsmakers. Thank you for. Having me. The moderator bans. Susan Swain is makers is back with Julie vica wits. The Wall Street Journal Amy Gardner of the Washington Post both covering national politics for their newspapers. We just talked to Emily Kane of Emily's list and. She talks about the cavenaugh hearings is really be a motivating force. But in fact, Republicans are saying the same thing and Mitch McConnell and speech on the floor of the Senate right after the vote said that this this hearings had done more to to galvanize their base than anything that the party operatives have been able to do. So are both true. I think there's a little bit of truth to both. I think there's been some polling this week. Politico published a poll this week that showed that there's been more momentum and energy measured on the democratic side than on the Republican side, but not by a huge margin as a result of the confirmation hearings and the result of the vote. I do hear a little bit of wishful thinking, and what Senator McConnell says about the anger? It's certainly there was anger during the process, but does it last now that Cavanaugh was actually confirmed is the is the big question as I think it's an issue that varies depending on the race. Of course, Emily mentioned how different candidates are messing differently depending on their race their state district. And there's no. No question that the the top democratic incumbent senators in. Republican states that President Trump won in two thousand sixteen are having to navigate a more difficult path on the Cavanaugh vote than somebody running in a bluer district or state Heidi. Heitkamp is a great example of this estate where the majority of voters are Republican majority of voters supported right Kavanagh's nomination, and she voted against it. And that's going to be tricky for her. Could you talk about from your perch about the amount of money going into this cycle? It seems like it's breaking all kinds of records is it. In fact, it is in fact, breaking all types of records just today. Beto Aurora who's running this kind of amazingly well funded campaign in Texas to unseat Senator Ted Cruz announced I think that he had raised like thirty eight million dollars. It's just a record smashing amount numbers that are coming in from racist all across the country are setting the bar higher and higher. And like Emily was saying it is fueled a lot by these small donors people who are have become more comfortable giving money online. It's just so natural now in our everyday lives that it's translating over into politics as well. And you've got some really great services on particularly the democratic side that have been around for a long time like act blue comes to mind that you're really seeing the sort of the power of small donors the cycle. I think that small donor giving on the democratic side is sort of the takeaway money story of two thousand eighteen well, we're talking big picture. Would you explain how early voting is impacting the way people campaign? It's it's something seems to gain more traction every cycle and fully two thirds of the states have some form of early voting in play. So people are already casting their ballots and we've got three weeks to go. How does that affect people in jobs like Emily canes job to get people to the polls, and and the messaging, I think it makes it much more difficult, and I think that the turnout operations in the field operations are happy to gear up earlier in earlier in earlier. I think I read a statistic this month that in North Carolina as an example fifty percent something close to fifty percent of voters cast absentee or early ballots, which is an astonishing astonishing figuring. It means that the some portion of the outcome is set long. Before election day. So we have to read polling data differently as we get closer to November and the campaigns have to be messaging and doing voter turnout efforts a month ahead, which is remarkable. What about the question that you all asked about voter suppression? That's happening in a number of states. Really, it's states saying they're cleaning up their voting rolls and trying to go into the balloting with more integrity. But what what is your reporting showing about what's going on? Well, I think any you've done a little bit more reporting on this than I have. So I'll let you take this question. But in general, I think that you're just seeing groups get involved in litigation and engaging in sort of, you know, public relations efforts to get the word out that this might be happening in Georgia. For example. It is a big story. It's the type of thing that a couple of cycles ago may have been going on but not gaining traction. And now it's front and center I began with President Trump claiming that three million people had voted illegally in two thousand sixteen. There's no evidence for this..
