"Casey Foundation. This is weekend edition from NPR News. I'm Lulu Garcia Navarro, a congresswoman from Southwest Washington State was unexpectedly at the center of the Senate impeachment trial Friday. Jamie Herrera Butler, one of the House Republicans who voted in favor of impeaching Donald Trump, corroborated a heated phone call between the president. And House Minority leader Kevin McCarthy. Her statement was submitted as evidence in the trial. Her Butler has been a prominent voice within the GOP against the former president. Joining us now to talk about how people in Washington State's their district are reacting to their congresswoman's actions is Troy Brenna Leeson from Oregon Public Broadcasting? Hello. Either. So first tell us a little bit about her butler. Who is she? And what was her stance on Trump before all of this? Yes. Oh. Jamie Herrera Butler is a Republican from the rural Community of battleground Washington. She was first elected in 2010 and has been a consistent force in this district. She regularly wins the races by double digits. It was only recently that she ever embraced Trump in 2016. She famously said she would write in Paul Ryan, saying she couldn't vote for Trump in good conscience. In 2020, who our however, she was more vocal about voting for Trump, even after the January 6 insurrection. She was referring to Trump is her guy. But then it came time to vote for impeachment, right? And she became one of 10 Republican House members who voted for impeachment. I'm wondering, Were there any ramifications locally for that? Yes, she she faced some pretty swift rebuke here from the more conservative corners of the district here. Trump won six counties last fall. But those are largely rural, less populated counties on he did very well there, but it's most populous county, Clark County. It's far more purple. It's the population center of the district and Republican organizations here weren't pulling punches. The Clark County Republican women said they'd never vote for Herrera Butler again. The head of the Clark County GOP, said his phone was ringing nonstop with people feeling betrayed. And if you talk to these groups, they say Trump continues to enjoy a ton of support here and its supporters are going to forget. I guess you know that brings us to right now because she again pit herself against her district's Trump supporters by tweeting a statement with details about Trump's behavior during the capital riot. Um, she did this Friday night after both sides and the impeachment trials ended their presentations. I mean, how are her constituents responding? Um to that? Yeah, It's true that Trump supporters here reacting quickly, But remember, this is a swing district. In the months since we've been hearing from more moderate Republicans who are coming to her defense. I talked with the prolific Republican donor here who regularly communicates with a rubber bowler, and he said he's hearing from other donors across the country. I want to make sure they contribute to her next campaign. The donor said that if Herrera Butler's actions has so angered the base will make sure she has a war chest. I mean, it's an interesting point, right? The division between the donor class and the base. Um, but does that mean that she'll likely face Republican in her primary? I mean, there are forces that might want that. Yeah, it's possible. What's interesting here is in Washington state's primary system advance. It advances the top two candidates, regardless of party, so it's possible to Republicans make it to the general election. Career brother could really be facing challenges from all sides, Your usual Democrats and the Trump supporters who want to see her out of office. I talked with political science Professor marks the fan here in Vancouver, Washington. He thinks it's more likely. Herrera bowler picks up more Democrats and centrists in the Trump supporters she loses. I expect there'll be at least one or two candidates who are very, very much supporters of Kind of the trump line of thought and and really are fighting to get her just pushed out of office. But she'll get support from places that we wouldn't have expected of otherwise. Still, Herrera Baylor doesn't face reelection until 2022. So it's going to be interesting to see if the Republican Party's relationship with Trump changes and how that might affect her fascinating indeed on to look at that one small corner of the country and the Republican Party that's Oregon public Broadcasting, Southwest Washington reporter Troy Brenna. Listen, Thank you so much. It's for having me America's reckoning with racism extends to some seemingly benign places like an antique mall. Oregon Public Broadcasting's Emily Cureton has this report and heads up. Her story includes hate speech and a description of a racist threat. The floor is a creaky maze at this antique store in Redmond, Oregon. Decoy.

There's much left their worst part of it is we're hearing for my son upon the malaria, and I think his home home burned to the ground last night, too. For some perspective, the Sun's home is 50 miles from male ums on a different river. Meanwhile, more than 50,000 people are without electricity this morning and there smoke blanketing much of western Oregon, making the air unhealthy to breathe, and that's especially bad news for vulnerable groups and people with covert 19. Right. So, speaking of which, I mean, we know the virus could spread really quickly in close quarters how emergency responders sheltering evacuees. The Red Cross is set up temporary evacuation points around the state, and the's aren't like shelters of the past. They're more like parking lots where evacuees can come to stay in and around their vehicles, while volunteers try to meet their needs. Red Cross spokesman Chad Carter says people who need shelter are being handled on a case by case basis. So when someone shows up and they do need shelter, we're prioritizing based on the size and scope of the disaster hotel rooms. That's the status place for folks to be because of covert 90. That said there just aren't enough available hotel rooms near the evacuated communities, and so some of the more traditional shelters are being set up. Just briefly. What air fire manager's expecting today? Hopefully, better news and weaker winds. The fire managers are calling this a hopeful change in weather conditions where they want to be able to pivot from survival mode to containment. Emily Cureton, reporter with Oregon Public Broadcasting, Emily. Thanks for your reporting on this, we appreciate it. You're very welcome. September usually brings traffic to a standstill in New York City, where world leaders gathered for the annual United Nations General Assembly this year. The event is largely moving online, except for President Trump, who was expected to address in person. Those foreign dignitaries who are allowed in the building, NPR's Michelle Kelemen reports. Swedish diplomat Olav School usually looks forward to the buzz of the U. N General Assembly high level debate. It's just an opportunity to discuss some of the real urgent issues be that you know the war in Libya or the situation in Yemen or disarmament problems. What? No, I mean, it's just an incredible jamboree for diplomacy, which has gone missing this year. He now represents the European Union at the U. N. And he's no fan of zoom diplomacy. You can't relieve grass. Body language. There's no small talk. All of that is really important, I think in international relations, Scoob is currently in quarantine so that he can actually attend the UN's high level debate starting September 22nd. Some diplomats have to be there even if the Corona virus pandemic is keeping foreign ministers and world leaders away. We will socially distance but still be in the room one ambassador per country, an organization, so yes, I will be there. The President Trump has pulled out of some U. N agencies and international agreements. He says he wants to show up in person to give his annual address. The Russian and Chinese leaders are to speak soon after him, though they're expected to be recorded. U. N spokesman Stephane Dujarric says that's for technical reasons. He jokes that setting up a small office zoom call is hard enough. I cannot imagine having a zoom call with 193 permanent members and two prominent observers in different languages in different time zones. I think it would make for a wonderful sort of nightlife skipped. Some diplomats are looking on the bright side of this virtual U. N. General Assembly or UNGA. Elizabeth Cousins runs the U. N Foundation, which promotes the work of the United Nations. One thing we're all learning is that the virtual world is more inclusive. In a way it does allow for a greater diversity of voices and perspectives to come into conversations. Some of that maybe about countries you haven't always been able to come to the who may find they show up in a virtual way. That's true for activist to Lou Sharpen O of Human Rights Watch remembers last year when a Syrian activists couldn't get a US visa to travel to U. N headquarters in New York. Someone like that in this virtual world, it's not a problem. All they need is a computer and an Internet connection, and we can bring them in. Ambassador Olav Scoob worries, though that world leaders may not see the U. N is such an important platform. If they're not in New York in person, there is a risk that the U. N fades. A little bit in the level of priority and interest in some of the world's capitals, and that would be a huge setback. I think when the U. N is more needed than ever, this is the 75th anniversary of the world body and Elizabeth cousin says the U. N. Was hoping this would be a time to highlight its work. I think we're all going to learn an enormous amount about what's possible in this historic and unusual General assembly. She advocates for a stronger US role at the U. N a challenge with the Trump Administration. Michelle Kelemen. NPR NEWS Washington.
