"I'm Ari Shapiro and I married Louise Kelly, as millions of voters wait in line to cast their ballots as millions of others have already voted on Army of lawyers has been fighting it out all the way to the Supreme Court. Yesterday, the court weighed in on challenges to absentee ballots and two key swing states, Pennsylvania. And North Carolina, and the cases were a little different, but they both had to do with ballot deadlines. And how long the states can count Mail in ballots after Election Day, so long as they are postmarked by election Day. We're going to talk this through with Ben Ginsberg. He is a veteran election lawyer. He was part of President George W. Bush is legal team back in the 2000 election. Hey, there. Welcome. Thank you. Give me your top line read on the significance of this pair of decisions. Is it fair to say this was a good day for Democrats and probably not where Republicans hope the court would land now inside a week to Election Day. I think that's fair. But the Supreme Court has been reasonably consistent about deferring to state lawmakers and policymakers on these questions. Pennsylvania gotta little bit murky because it involved a state Supreme Court as opposed to a legislature. In North Carolina involved in appointed board, but they're both arguably the state entities with a say in its absentee balloting. We're talking about constitutional questions, but also these challenges. Ey're very much political. Would you agree that we're basically talking about Republicans wanting less time for voting Democrats, more of whom seemed to be voting absentee and by mail wanting More time for the ballots to be accepted mean practically. What will the consequences of these rulings being the practical consequences of the rulings will be that balance that air postmarked on Election Day? Can still be counted there received within three days of the election in Pennsylvania in nine days in North Carolina, so theoretically, there will be more ballots counted. Part of what's important in the Supreme Court decisions is that if you start changing deadlines Voters are likely to be confused because they've relied on what they believe the deadline's Bay I mentioned you were one of the lawyers on the Bush legal team in the last contested presidential election in 2000, which of course, was ultimately decided by the Supreme Court. How do you rate the chances? We might end up in the same place in this election at 5.2%? 5.2? Okay, there have been 57 presidential elections in our history. Three of them have gone Tio either a contested election or a recount, So there's a 5.2% chance. Okay, however, we do find herself in the moment that we're in in 2020. It's not just about statistics, and then a. What do you think this is on the chances that We will have an uncontested election result at some point in the in the days after November 3rd. I think that there is a lot of concern about this election, in part because of the pandemic and the fact that there is An overwhelming number of absentee mail in ballots that we've never had before, were certainly living in a polarized time in our country, which means the rhetoric is more heated than usual. So we naturally turned Tio contested outcomes. I think it's really unlikely there'll be something like Florida, Florida was an improbably narrow margin. In a state that turned out to be outcome determinative in the electoral college. That is a lot of random events lining up and of course, you can't know it this point whether elections are going to be so close. That they fall into a 0.25%. There requires an automatic recount in most states If I'm hearing you, right, you're a veteran election lawyer who is very much hoping this. This does not end up with the lawyers that this election does not end up being decided in the courts absolutely mean the country is feeling a little bit fragile between the pandemic and the rhetoric and the polarization involved. I think we would all be much better off with clear cut results. His election lawyer been Ginsburg was part of the Bush legal team back in 2000 many thanks. Thank you. North Carolina is a key presidential swing state. Democrats think they can flip it because of its growing suburban population on large African American vote, but both parties are mounting intense. Get out the vote efforts. NPR's Don Gani a checks in 59 year old Linda Eppolito's Day job is in international health care.

How Party Leaders Get Ready for the Election in Pivotal Pennsylvania County

"Pennsylvania, a working class area in the northern northwestern most corner of the state. Has long been solid territory for Democrats. Then in 2016, Donald Trump eked out a narrow victory. Now in 2020, the county is again seen as pivotal NPR national political correspondent Don Can you sat down with Republican and Democratic leaders in the county? Jim words. A 41 year old college professor, was named Erie County Democratic Chair two years ago. He wasn't in charge when Trump won here. Still, he's fixated on the numbers just 1967 votes, so a really narrow margin and so for me for the last couple of years, it's been staring at those numbers. There are so many what ifs. What if Hillary Clinton had run a better campaign? What if there had been better turnout in the city of here? But words also gives the trump campaign credit for its use of digital targeting for getting people to make personal contact with friends to find new voters for trump factor in their social media presence in their online presence, and the kind of targeting they did, in some cases with the help of foreign actors and others, it had a very significant psychological role. What says the Democrats goal this year is not to mimic that Trump campaign. It's to build on the enthusiasm Democrats showed in the 2018 midterms and to reach beyond the traditional base. To that end, Erie County Democrats have set up field offices out in rural communities. Words talked as he unloaded boxes of lawn signs from the back of his jeep bed once not jobs.

Joe Biden's Potential Running Mate: Susan Rice

"Joe Biden is believed to be getting close to naming his running mate in this year's presidential election. One of those on Biden's short list for the job is Susan Rice. She has deep experience as an ambassador and in national security, but not as a candidate. NPR's Don Gani reports. Susan Rice has a ready answer when asked about the possibility of being Joe Biden's pick for vice president, whether I'm his running mate, or I'm a door knocker. I don't mind this was on NBC's Meet the press, and I'm going to do everything I can. To help get Joe Biden elected him to help him succeed is president. Her resume is deep. Rhodes scholar, State Department ambassador to the U. N. Obama's national security advisor, rise His vice presidential prospects gain strength as calls for Biden to name an African American woman grew during this summer's black lives matter. Protests And she is known to be tough. This is from an appearance on NPR last fall, My dad had a mantra that comes from his experience growing up in the segregated South, and in the twenties and thirties and Serving and segregated Air Force A Tuskegee during World War two. Hey, always told me and my brother don't take crap off of anybody. Of all the potential Biden running mates. None can match rice on foreign policy. But to many her inclusion on the short list is curious because that skill set duplicates Biden's own strength. He has deep foreign policy experience from his decades in the Senate. There is one big gap in Rice's resume. She has never held elective office never been a candidate, veteran Democratic strategist Patti Solis Doyle says in 2020. That particular shortcoming may not matter at all, given how campaigning has changed under the pandemic. No arousing public speeches, no handshakes at the local diner That's not happening anymore. And so that skill is not as valuable as it was, Say four years ago. The pandemic also complicates the vetting process. Those one on one get acquainted meetings between Biden and potential nominees will certainly be different. But Biden already knows Rice well, including from hours and hours together in the Oval Office during the Obama years. If there's one person that knows that Susan Rice has been in the room and can handle the pressure, it's Joe Biden. Joe Joe Biden has seen it firsthand. One certain line of attack Republicans will use against Rice. If she's on the ticket is Benghazi. That's the 2012 assault on a U. S diplomatic compound in Libya that killed four Americans. When it happened Rice one on TV and called the Assault an act of spontaneous violence that was later shown to be incorrect. All these years later, it remains a rallying cry for Republicans. In fact, here is Secretary of State Mike Pompeo just this month talking about Rice and Benghazi on Fox News. She went on and made up a story about a video in a protest when she knew full well that this was a terror attack. In the end, multiple GOP led congressional enquiries into Benghazi uncovered no wrongdoing by the Obama administration. Susan Rice, meanwhile, is looking ahead early this year. She was on a panel and caution that if Democrats retake the White House, they'll need to respect institutions and show respect to their opponents. There will be
