Nevada Legislature Passes Bill Replacing Caucus With First-In-Nation Primary

"Nevada lawmakers have passed a bill to make it the first state to hold a presidential primary in twenty twenty four but it's far from being a done deal traditionally it's Iowa first with caucuses in February and then New Hampshire holds the next primary but Democrats in Nevada led by former Senate leader Harry Reid I think they'll do a better job of leading off the presidential contests saying the state's diversity better reflects the whole country and they're hoping to end their caucus process and go to primary balloting if signed by Nevada's governor the measure would still need approval from both major political parties and it's likely other states will object to getting pushed back on the calendar I'm Jackie Quinn

Senate Ends Hope for Significant Wage Hike

"So we got the senate doing their senate thing today. Right to vote a rama. There's all these amendments and there was standoff happening in something that happened there today. A seven democrats and one independent who caucuses with democrats joined with republicans to shoot down raising the federal minimum wage to fifteen dollars an hour as part of the biden cove. Relief package among those democratic. Novo's joe manchin of west virginia. Chris coons of delaware. The moment that really stood out was when arizona democrat. Kirsten cinema walked up to cast her. Vote miss cinema cinema. No out she represents arizona. Maybe that was a homage to the late. John mccain. Who famously did that to that. Repeal vote but that full thumbs down from arizona helped end hopes for a really big wage hike that the congressional budget office says directly affect seventeen million american workers on a bringing maria. Teresa kumar co founding president and ceo voto latino fetchacure former senior adviser senate democratic leader harry reid and current advisor to bernie sanders. Faz let me start with you. I want people to understand this. Vote before we analyze us. This was a vote that was going to fail either way. It was essentially a symbolic message. Vote because it needed sixty votes filibuster -able so going into this. Everyone knows it's not gonna be talking to pass. No republicans are going to vote for it. So it's a free ride. It's a layup you get up there and say yes. We want to fifteen our minimum wage. So it was very very surprising to me. A lot of people to see democrats eight of them in the caucus vote. No what is your explanation. Of course you've got to go back in history. A little bit where. President obama suggested raising the minimum wage to ten ten. It was hillary clinton during the two thousand sixteen campaign who suggested raising it to twelve. It was bernie sanders. Who's been pushing along with you to raise the wage to fifteen dollars an hour. And as a result of that we have gotten a lot of progress in the democratic caucus and not all the way clearly and painful. Chris you take senator cinema arizona's got a twelve dollar minimum wage. And in fact if you look at raise the wage which gradually raises the minimum wage to fifteen dollars over five years it would be at twelve fifty by year. Three which is where harris zona is so many ways it doesn't really impact arizona and yet you have center for cinema denying many people. Millions of people around the country are arrays of their wages. Maria wha what did you make so. I used to work in congress. A- as a hill staff for a long time ago on preparations and this was fairly unusual. Because what those eight did was say. That they were not going to deliver the biden agenda in the biden administration. Right now is going to figure out how to channel little lbj and demonstrate that there are consequences when there are not voting down for the presence agenda. As you mentioned. chris. This was a layup but i have to say when we when we witnessed this thumbs down by cinema. I think for a lot of folks people felt at at odds because when john mccain did it it was to save healthcare for millions of americans when she when she did today was turned down. This idea that there was going to be some sort of economic closer to economic committee. For millions of americans and fifteen dollars has even fifteen dollars does not keep pace with the with the inflation rate of the nineteen. Seventies the raiders really. I established it was perplexing on many many fronts but this is an opportunity really for joe biden to say. You're going to have to come down to the white house because we're gonna have a talking

"What do you hear that just a minute but lying to Congress? I have to pause here. Because another of the double standard selective outrage examples Harry Reid. Harry Reid is on the floor of the Senate during the 2012 election. And flout says the word on the street is that Mitt Romney has not paid taxes in 10 years. Let him prove that he has because he hasn't Was alive. Harry Reid knew was a lie when he said it. And then when he was comfortably out of office, giving an interview with CNN kicking back and he's asked about it was, Yeah. And she says, Do you feel bad about this? And he smugly said Well, Rommie didn't win, Did he? The ends justifies Means. Harry Reid, get camp least alive. You know the Twitter account. Yeah, I checked it there today is still there. That lie dramatically hurt Romney. I'm not saying it turn the election, but the whole mean was, this is a rich guy who doesn't want to turn over his taxes. He's playing by a different set of rules. And for And the reporter on K on ABC, Jonathan Karl even said That Romney compared to anonymous candy making $75 a year. $75 a year has a lower federal effective income tax rate than the auto mechanic. It's a lie. It's comparing apples to apples. To homeowners to people were married. Two people have kids and therefore take the standard deductions. The auto mechanics, federal effective income tax rate is substantially lower. And Romney has done in the carnal been canceled for that lie. Pushed the mean that rich people don't pay taxes..

"They changed the rules to accommodate President Obama tried to stack the court. They never thought Clinton would lose. So what you're gonna have is Harry Reid and Chuck Schumer's desire to stack the court. On their democratic watches. Come come back to haunt them. If there is an opening for their scans, burger anybody else I will urge the president to nominate a qualified conservative and hopefully those people will get through that. Now. His letter to senators Feinstein and Leahy Durbin White House Club, which are kun's Blumenthal, Hirono Booker and harass those the Democrats in the Senate Judiciary Committee. Saying that like million of millions of Americans, I was shocked and saddened to hear of justice. Ginsburg's death She served honorably on the federal bench was a Trailblazer for women in the law. She will be missed. When the American people elected a Republican Senate majority in 2014 Americans did so because we committed to checking and bouncing the end of President Obama's lame duck presidency. We did so we follow the precedent that the Senate followed for 140 years since the 18 eighties, No senator's confirmed an opposite party President, Supreme Court nominee During an election year because our Senate majority committed to confirming President Trump's excellent judicial nominees, and particularly because we committed to supporting his Supreme Court nominees. The American people expanded the Republican majority in 2018, We should honor that mandate. Also unlike in 2016, President Trump is currently standing for re election. The people will have a say in his choices. So he's letting them know we have a job to do. Republicans were voted for a reason elections of consequences. We're going forward, and then he continues. Lastly, after the treatment of Justice Cavanaugh, I now have a different view of the judicial confirmation process. Repair the treatment of Robert Poor Clarence Thomas Samuel Alito on Brett Kavanaugh to that of Ruth Better Ginsberg, Sonya's son of my urine, Elena Kagan, and it's clear that there already is one set of rules for Republican president and one set of rules for a Democrat president. I therefore think it is important that we proceed expeditiously to process any nomination made by President Trump to fill this vacancy. I am certain if the shoe were on the other foot.

"So the senators who were Democrats change it from 60 to 50 because Obama and Harry Reid wanted to do it here we are a few years later. And guess what the chickens have come home to roost. And now the Democrats have painted themselves into the box. And now they've done that. Why the Republicans? What degree on this? There's not some power that the last two months of a presidency doesn't exist anymore. He still has all the power of the presidency, and the sand is still has all the power of the Senate. Of course, if the shoe were on the on the other foot, wait only route. Let's say Harry, let's say Hillary Clinton and won the presidency over Trump. And here she sits, and she's down in the Polish is going to lose. And the Senate majority leader is Chuck Schumer. Do you think you're doing Hillary Clinton and Chuck Schumer would wait until the Republican was elected to take away their vote? Do you think that what happened? Well, no course not Personal. I want to re actually said about Harry Reid and how he had this stuff. Because now you only need a a bare majority. 51. So all I could say is I'm calling flowers or us and I'm having delivered to Harry's out. He's my neighbor. You know, you get sent flowers over there in Rose's Harry Reid and thank him for this. A Zafar is whether you know Schumer would've waited or any Democratic majority leader would have waited so no, but Arjun RBG wouldn't have waited. Ruth Ginsburg wouldn't away to their story right now Brand new just out afew minutes ago in the New York Post that, Ruth Bader Ginsburg told the Senate in 2016. Jule yourjob and replace Scalia before the election and the only thing that stopped it from happening, Of course, Mitch McConnell was in charge of the Senate. If it wasn't a Democrat, or they would've rammed it through, we have control said it and we have to ram it through. So RBG Ruth Bader Ginsburg said. You've got to do your job and replace Scalia. Well, here's what annoys me about respect her Ginsberg's first. Well, if that's what she really believed in it. I've been very nice. I'd like to be nice people are dead, but I still have to say something a little negative here. Listen. She's a total hypocrite in the fraud if she said 16 to your job in her place, Julia, and then she told her daughter on her death bed. I don't want anyone replacing the Let the next president do it. That's hypocrisy, the finest and it also bothers me because it's elitism at its finest. She obviously thinks that she owns that kind of like several black Democrats who were in Congress can't remember all their names. Conyers all these black Democrats when they die after 40 years of being Congress, their wife runs See you think upstairs. They think they own it. American people owned that seat in the Supreme Court of the American people on the Congress. You don't own it. No family owns it forever. Slaves anymore. The United States of America were not, and you're not the king and she's not the Queen Respirator. Ginsberg. She has no right to determine who gets her seat. Last I checked. The only person who thought he could control with feet was a blah go and he went to jail with the governor of Illinois. He thought he owned Obama said it see, and he thought by giving it away could make some money. Guess what. Nobody's going to get rich off. The Supreme Court seat Republicans job is to put someone in the seat and it doesn't belong to the Ruth Bader Ginsberg family. It doesn't belong to the Democrat Party. And here's one area where I disagree with Trump. It doesn't belong to a woman just because a woman was in it. You know, I know, he says He thinks he wants to get elected. And you got to make the women vote. You know, female vote happy and that's fine with me. But I'm just telling you, it bothers me a little bit as a male. I don't think Trump should we walk around saying I'm only Women with seat anymore than Biden should have ever, said Mulligan, Syria black woman for vice president. It's all outrageous whatever happened, just worrying about who is the best candidate. What Ruth Bader Ginsburg could have done When Anthony Anthony Kennedy had done and picked her successor. She could have gone to Obama at any point up through the seventh year of his presidency. Even with the Republicans in charge, say, a year and a half out at that point, you would've been what 83 83 years old and she had colon cancer rectal cancer, she had pancreatic cancer. And she was 83 years old with a beautiful grandkids, she said. He said Mr President, you pick my cig, my successor and with the Republicans controlling the Senate. I'm sure that with two years to go, we could get that done and she could have said I will. I will retire from the U. S Supreme Court If you pick this person, and Obama would have said Thank you very much. Justice Ginsburg. Ginsberg and he would have done in Kennedy. Did it. Candidate goes to Bush directly indirectly says Look, I'll step down if you named my law clerk, Bread cabin all and of course, the deal was made in a way you go when the book from books come out. That is what happened. But Ginsburg could have named her success, successor and change the country. All of this if she had the foresight to do it, but you don't That she did not want to quit her seat at the age of 83. Why not spend time with the grandkids? Why not travel? One up the RBG? Why not have some freedom? But she wanted to go down with the ship. And now that she's gone down with the ship, let's apply the Ginsburg standard. Against Burke Standard four years ago was if a president nominates somebody. They have to have a vote in the Senate, which is what she said in 2016 dealing with marriage, Garland. But now the Ginsburg center has has been ignored and that that's sad. She had the right to do what you did and retire early, and she didn't do it. Now. We've got about five minutes remaining. What.

Biden rallies establishment in bid to turn back Sanders

"Biden Wins. Every county in South Carolina from the hills to the C. Colossal victory in the first representative state. Is this the second day of the rest of his political life? Well it certainly feels that way. I mean look at the last forty eight hours. You have money which he hasn't had you've had endorsements you have people on the hill rallying around him. There's a Russian expression I think Peter might know it Success has its own aroma. That when you start winning that something happens that there's sort of an aura. People wanted to see him win. It's not just that he won one really big. And the the proportion of the African American vote the way he dominated constituency which is so important in a Democratic primary centene incredibly powerful message to people who had been wavering about him Peter Baker I recall a donald trump using biden's name a time or two in the past. Have you any evidence about how the president is processing the Biden Victory in South Carolina? I'm really what it may mean for the rest of the race. Look I think we know that the president would rather see Bernie Sanders. He's Kinda Telegraph that as his opponent. Candidates are notoriously bad picking their opposition. They they may not always have the right decision on that. But I see the contrast between the socialist and his version of capitalism as advantageous choice for the fall so tonight at the Rally. You heard him go. After Biden. Newly Resurgent Biden. Pretty harsh terms. He mocked him as feeble minded. Kind of has been ridiculed the vice president for his verbal gaffes lately confusing names saying that could be tomorrow's Super Thursday instead of Tuesday that kind of thing and he seemed to relish it but at the same night is trying to stir the pot. He's trying to get the sanders supporters. Upset whatever happens if he would lose if he were to lose. The president is saying is because it was a coup. That was the phrase there. Were he used today? I think on twitter because he wants to say they're the establishment is stealing it from Bernie Sanders in his view. He wins either way. He gets a candidate he wants and Bernie Sanders and a stark choice. Or you know. He gets a moderate Democrat to face but makes the laughter try get the left anyway. Upset BECAUSE BERNIE. Sanders did get what he says is fair do congresswoman. It's hard to imagine and fast forward through the history of the Democratic Party to a time where there has been one colossal consensus figure in the Democratic Party coming off his historic two-term presidency. He and the former first lady are often at the very top of opinion polls for most admired man. Most admired woman talk about the Barack Obama effect potentially on this election. Well I think it's a significant effect and I don't think it just rest with president former President Obama. I think you know when you look at people who were central to the Obama Administration now coming out in support of Joe Biden. That is in some ways telegraphing where the OBAMAS are and so. This shouldn't be a surprise me. We in some ways it would be kind of odd. Obviously if Vice President Biden didn't get the support of these allies of President Obama. We'd be all over that that. I do know Susan. Rice endorsed today among others. Well she did and I think that you know when you look at the range of endorsers especially today from Susan Rice and shoring up the foreign policy backing Joe Biden on domestically to have better work. Stand there along with Buddha judge or with char that makes a huge difference. Those are big signals sometimes. Endorsements don't matter at all in a campaign and we overestimate that but these were big Carolina. I'd like to read from you. The work of Jonathan Martin and Alex Burns over at your outfit very simply. The headline tells the story frozen in anxiety. How Democratic leaders leaders struggled to confront Bernie Sanders What is the story mean for the future potentially of the Democratic Party? Well it means a couple of things one if you look at that story part of the reason that they had a difficult time building consensus at that point around. Biden is because the campaign was really bad. The candidate was not reaching out to people as obvious as Harry Reid. The money was not coming in. Joe Biden was running in a very old fashioned way. He didn't have the base of say small donors and I think that story gets that and I think everyone should read. It is really the tension that might erupt if the Democrats are successful in kind of building up Biden as the Anti Bernie and prevailing like do they risk alienating. Some of the young people especially young men have gotten excited about Bernie Sanders to your first point. Sometimes people just like to be asked Harry. Reid came out in the last twenty four hours and endorsed but as they say that would have been nice lovely before the primary in his State. But actually you're raising a good point because today. I don't know if you've heard Biden's remarks he asked for people's help. He asked for their support. So somebody is sort of getting that message to him and Dunn Edwards a blatantly political question. What do you do about the split in the party? What do you do if you arrive at your convention? You'll be there and Bernie Sanders has slightly more of the delegates and that there's a group that wants to nominate Joe by first of all. I hope that we actually don't get to that point because I think it is really difficult. One and I would urge Democrats to stop running the Anti Bernie Campaign. They can run a campaign that elevates Joe Biden support coalescence around Joe Biden without sort of putting a knife in the Bernie Sanders supporters. I think that would be wrong for our party. And it certainly will not help us coming out of the Convention to have fully United Party. I mean Bernie has said that he's committed to that and I actually believe him on that point and I don't think he's GonNa be used as a pawn by Donald Trump. Should he not get the nomination but exit and that kind of exit is really important and so we have to figure that out? And I don't know yet whether burning might have enough to go into the convention and consolidate support and get the nomination. That could still happen. I do think for all you viewers watched Texas if Joe Biden does really well there I think in in Bernie a does well on Super Tuesday but Joe Biden has enough reason in enough momentum to to really challenge him in a number of places. I think there's a really good shot that we go and I'm not just saying this because I've dreamed about it as a reporter forever but that we go to a convention and have a contested convention you guys are on different teams just simply just because the anxiety for anti I get it. Zantac sales will spike Peter. I've got a tweet from Aaron. Blake over at the Washington Post again to keep things fair. Republican members of Congress haven't sent one tweet or press release mentioning Burris Ma or Hunter Biden since February seventh per alleged storm. One day after Biden Win South Carolina. Senator Johnson of Wisconsin sends this letter on a Sunday. No less Sometimes Peter the Republicans are Director. Never Ironic fifth well. Look you know. Burris wasn't necessary in the Republican. Playbook when Biden was down and out he was a fourth-place fifth-place finisher and the early primary states and they had bigger fish to fry at that point. It was Michael Bloomberg on the rise Bernie Sanders on the rise. They were focused on them. Now Biden of course is resurgent. You're going to hear a lot. More about Burris men Hunter Biden. And that's something that Democrats have to take into consideration is they picked their nominee because it is a subject. They're going to have to address the fall. If Joe Biden is their nominee either got to figure out how they're going to answer it how they're going to defend against going explain it. Some of these things can be dismissed as well. President trump was exaggerating. But there are some things that are genuinely troubling to a lot of voters even Democrats who have been disturbed by by some of what they've seen so this is a big factor in a way the Republicans are trying to stir the pot here before Super Tuesday. But it's a reminder that we're playing we're not playing ball and this is going to be a big contest come the fall. Whoever's the nominee Peter you're around to cover the Obama White House year among the former presidents biographers when people ask you what you saw of the relationship between President and Vice President? How easy was the relationship that kind of thing? How do you answer? That's a good question. I didn't start off that easy. In fact these are two very different kinds of personalities. They came from different generations. Different backgrounds different experience levels different introvert extrovert kind of ways of dealing with people but over the years they were together they really did bond in a pretty significant way. I think certainly you saw that by the time. Beau Biden died and Barack Obama gave the eulogy at the funeral. That was about as close a bonding moment as you can imagine between two political figures that doesn't necessarily mean he. He thought that Barack Oh so he thought that Joe Biden necessarily the best candidate to run this year. I think the Rock Obama had his concerns but now that we're facing a choice between Bernie Sanders and one other candidate. You can sorta see as as you put it as Kelly and her colleagues wrote the subtle hand of of Obama coming into play here which clearing the field to some extent of the the other Moderate alternatives that is a biden versus sanders. Kind of contest. Everybody Strap in Super Tuesday star. Hours are great thanks to Peter Baker to Caroline Ryan to Donna Edwards for starting off on manic

"Okay as we approach super Tuesday there is a lot of campaign activity to keep track of people to judge the former mayor of south bend Indiana has endorsed former vice president Joe Biden the judge suspended his own presidential bid last night also today Minnesota senator Amy Klobuchar plans to suspend her campaign and she also endorsed by them they're set to appear together in Dallas NPR political correspondent Asma Holland has been traveling with the biting campaign she joins us now has some other there are let's begin with this booty judge endorsement what did he say tonight well it just happened a few minutes ago here in Dallas and he said he was delighted he endorsed by did in part because you feel like you know this is not just about winning the presidency it's about winning the local Senate and house races and he made some sort of I think coded references to Bernie Sanders suggesting that being the loudest is not always about being right he also mentioned that he feels like Joe Biden it's just a particularly decent person he sees that he said would you run against him but also when you start your wedding comes with own hometown of south bend while he was vice president okay just a step back for a moment though I mean we see endorsements from the judge from club which are along with an endorsement from former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid which also came today for Biden how big a deal do you think are all these endorsements put together today I mean it's tricky I mean for Joe Biden said get news right you had a pretty rough opening to this primary season finishing in fourth place in fifth place he's I hope you had a remarkably strong last seventy two hours not only would that resounding victory in South Carolina but they're just getting us we would contortionist and really what we've seen is we've seen a moderate candidate in this race decide that they were going to coalesce around one single alternative to Bernie Sanders and they decided that that best alternative is Joe Biden you know on the other hand though Bernie Sanders had run at the anti establishment figure in some way not really he's in North Dakota bolstered his theory of the case which is that the democratic establishment it is not for him and they have never supported him and didn't you know he's not always been a part of a long time member of the Democratic Party right so if you're on the Sanders campaign right now I guess how might you be feeling seeing all these endorsements coming in for a bite and I mean it's a tricky thing to say what they wanted an endorsement from someone like beauty get you Bernie Sanders has really ideologically Gifford with substantively on the debate stage you know both provided an empty dejected suggested that Sanders Medicare for all vision which is too radical it was not in sync with what a vast majority of Americans wanted their queue and and really I think it's gonna Sanders campaign you're hot again the establishment and most of the north is that we've seen today well really good for Joe Biden in terms of you know consolidating the traditional democratic establishment support you know what Bernie Sanders I would argue it makes it a stronger as well so I I really would say you need a clarifying vision will be what we actually start counting votes I'm super Tuesday went fourteen states will vote right and speaking of super Tuesday I mean what do you think the effect will be tomorrow on super Tuesday and going forward of both the judge and any call which are not being in this race anymore I mean look Joe Biden certainly has much to gain specifically because we see these two candidates who dropped out of the race go ahead and line themselves up behind Joe Biden impact judge tonight here said that he was endorsing but any hopes that his supporters would join in and that I think would be most interesting out there is that when we look at some of the polls earlier in the week last week it looks like Joe Biden was really on the cusp of being viable in some of the states that means he needed needs to get fifteen percent in order to accrue any delegate to win clover shard JH no longer in the race at all it seems likely that he'll get at least a moderate this and at least that way you'll be viable and be able to get delegates and to me that is the biggest difference is that really will likely see many more places where bite in across the board is able to recruit delegates mark all right that is NPR's us Mulholland thank you so much

Democrats are ruining the left remember destroys everything it touches this no exception. art music education children religion everything it touches his bid ruins and now it's routing of the the concept of impeachment which was. extremely rarely used it is now used because they don't like the results of an election. I read in the first hour of peace in the nation the may you can't get left of the nation relation is is left the magazine is exists any of the writer wrote this is of this is Chris I'm paraphrasing this is a fraud. this conversation is not worthy of beach with. okay that's it. it would be absurd for weren't so serious. and so what is going to happen in your lifetime my friends is and I hope the Republicans do it all right all right bye I truly believe in fighting your enemy the way they fight. this notion of we will we will be sweet while they are despicable is suicidal okay you want war you got war by with by the way was already done. I am very a lowlife man named Harry Reid a K. eight a man who who not only lied but it but boasted about lying about Mitt Romney remember that about Mitt Romney not paying income tax or whatever it was and he said well it worked didn't it that's the only criterion for the left liberals. truth tellers and wires conservatives are truth tellers and wires left the store waters. they lie because if they told the truth they wouldn't be left as they have to lie because it's it's not the value. so I Harry Reid did his thing they all do they all do it and this is this is the latest so I'm back to fighting the fight so Harry Reid said okay we're going to drop the filibuster so far until the Republicans when they got into power said fine we'll drop the filibuster for Supreme Court nominees and that's how they got their appointments through thanks to Harry review could thank Harry Reid for conservative justices thank you Harry. you you are a disgusting human being who has earned the right to have the the left understand you are the one who made it possible to have too conservative justices appointed to the US Supreme Court. and now the now this is the Adam Schiff legacy. we will impeach whenever we don't like a result that is all this is about that is all you are lying to yourself if you think that this is worthy of impeachment. these people do lie to themselves constantly I understand that. that's all this is we don't like the results they've been looking for a way to impeach him they were certain that the Russian collusion ally would work turn out to be one of the greatest lies in American history if not the greatest in terms of time effort and widespread believability for spreading of it in the media. so that was a turn out to be alive so they go to another thing a conversation. a conversation that is it is it is it some nothing if as a common nothing burger. president Obama could have been impeached so much more easily if the Republicans thought this way whispering to the Soviet ambassador just wait till the election I'll have more flexibility to deal with what you want. tell.

"Harry Reid is now Harry Reid is coming back and saying, you know, who I wish I wish that the President Bush were back I wish for Bush everyday worth noting. He said that President Bush was war. He suggested that President Bush at the time in America under President Bush was dark. This is just something that you you hear routinely from Democrats every time Republican leaves office. They become the new favorite Republican. So Mitt Romney now, you'll hear Democrats. Oh, I wish we had mitt Romney's President Trump so bad. And I promise you once Trump is gone in another Republican is running. It will be oh, man. I wish for those. You remember President Trump so moderate on so many issues even President Trump said he likes entitlement spending. Here's Harry Reid doing that routine about Bush, President Bush is the worst president we've ever had in hindsight. I wish every day for George Bush, again, I think that I had our differences, but no one ever questioned his patriotism are panels were strictly political battles. There's no question in my mind. George bush. Would be Babe Ruth. Reason with Donald Trump in the league, Donald Trump wouldn't make the team. Okay. I mean, so my favorite part of that is Dana bash expression. If you could see Dana bash absolute glee over at CNN to Harry Reid's announcement that suddenly he likes President Bush. It's important to notice the sort of stuff. The reason is because if you want to understand how President Trump became president. It's exactly because of this kind of thing it's because Democrats for years treated, Republicans mainstream compassionate decent men, like George W Bush as garbage as drac, and then they turned around and said, oh, well, you know, those guys were pretty good. But the new guys are really awful Republicans had listen, we know how you're going to treat us, no matter what. So we want the guy who's gonna punch in the nose. That's what we want. We want the guy who's gonna who's not going to sit there and be the class act. We want the person who is willing to take out a knife and cut you to President Trump is you want to know who is responsible for today's nasty politics. There's zero question that Harry Reid was a key player in the rise of America's nasty brand of politics. He reveled in it. He glory. In it. And now for him to lamented. Oh, President Trump what a bad guy, Harry Reid's bad guy, and it's because of bad guys like Harry Reid. The President Trump is currently sitting in the Oval Office. All right coming up. President Trump is headed over to Vietnam. Talk with the North Koreans. Plus, we're gonna be talking about a shocking story Bernie Sanders taking chartered flights in spite of climate change. Oh, no.

President Trump is traveling to Vietnam for his summit this week with North Korean leader, Kim Jong Hoon correspondent will Ripley North Korea wants economic relief they want they want the normalization of diplomatic ties. And of course, the US wants North Korea to actually do something to get rid of their nuclear weapons.

It will pass the Senate. The president will veto it. There will be the votes to override, but it'll end up in the courts it'll drag on and of course, what good. Are we doing? What is what is happening here? Yeah. What good are we doing? Very fair question at this point in time. A very fair question. What good is this doing well for the base? You may excite them. This may be great. But I also look at what comes next Harry Reid went nuclear. People warned him against it Chuck Schumer came out afterwards and said, we're going to regret that the Democrats are and they did and this sets up something. Well, Chad there's thirty one other ones these. Yes, there is. There is. But a lot of those things are like, you know, hey, if you tried to stop the Middle East peace process, or, you know, a Ronnie in some of these like, it's it's this is something wholly different. Again, there's thirty one other ones of these. Nobody knows about him even said today. Well, that's because they weren't very exciting. Like me. But this is all about twenty twenty. I've been saying that right. And the battles going to go on and the longer you can keep this in the news, the more. He could talk about how he's battling to do everything. The better it is for him. But for everybody out there that's cheering this. When the Democrats say climate change is a real big issue in America has to move towards something and they've got to get back into the Paris climate agreement and they've got to get back and even move further past that because we're so far behind now, this is a state of emergency.

"Museum of the way we live is talking points. And I don't know about you. But I can't stand them when I even on my own network when I hear somebody live, and I can almost literally hear him or her reading off the page the talking points. I just can't bear it. I click it off. But it's politics today is. And too often reflected in the media. Yes. I have Mike over here. Ignoring this side that these shot up. The change of the doorbuster rule for supreme court justices from sixty down to fifty done by. Mitch McConnell Democrats are changing for everybody. But the chief Justice. Extreme court justices. You think that change resulted in getting both courses cavenaugh confirmed or would they have been confirmed without it? And do you think? Changed back to sixty votes. So should get broader consensus of who three-man. That's like asking people to disarm unilaterally. That's what the Democrats would say to you. I think they would not have been confirmed. If there had been the fish where the filibuster rule, but. There is no doubt in my mind that. That even if the Democrats had not done what they did that Mitch McConnell would have changed the filibuster rules for judges period. Because. That was the way that he this is what this is this presidency was his chance, and and he took it. And I don't for a moment. Think that? If Harry Reid hadn't in desperation at the end of the Obama administration managed to finally change the rule. For lower court judges. If if we're if he'd never done that. I am. Pretty sure that Mitch McConnell would have changed the rule and the the best evidence of that is that. Enough of the old bulls on the democratic side didn't want to didn't really want to change the rule, and and neither did some of the old bull. Republicans like McCain McCain went to McConnell and carried a proposal from the Democrats in from Harry Reid. It said if you came to a head when there were three openings on the DC circuit and Obama named three people to the DC, circuit and. The Republicans were filibustering all three of them. And the Democrats said we're going to change the rule because this you're just you're just blocking everybody we have. And so, but they had a proposal. They said, which they gave to McCain carried a McConnell, which was and to the Republican caucus, which was if you will approve one of the three we will not change the role and McCain brought it to the Republican caucus, and they all said, no. So. If you really wanted to maintain the rule there was a way to do it. And some people did wanna maintain the rule, but I don't think it was a majority of the Democrats or the Republicans assuming long life for the four liberal judges. If you will is it likely in the next two years that we could see a resignation of one of the those on the right in order to give Trump third appointment. No, I don't think so. No, I don't think. So if Clarence Thomas retires, he'll do it because he wants to retire. He will not do it. I don't think to give Trump another appointment. These people are really very loyal to this institution and to themselves, and they think they do their job quite well. And they're not inclined to say, oh, well, somebody younger than me. We should give him his or her that person should have their shot. It's I. The only time I- Viren white was going to retire. He waited to retire until there was a democrat until Bill Clinton was in office. But if Bill Clinton had not been elected he would have retired. He waited because he wanted there to be a democrat. But he wasn't in a way. Eight more years. Right. Of course, in your coverage of Anita hill was one of the most important parts of me, kind of realizing that there was news outside of my school playground. For that. And listening to the cabinet hearings. I was just wondering how that was personally for you. Having broken the story of need hill was difficult, and how in general how that experience was about to reveal to you in some sense. What a venal person, I am it wasn't that difficult. It was too good a story to be that. But I did on the day that Christine blassie Ford testified in everybody was saying, well, I is is tell us. I all I could do is think that people thought that at the after Anita hill testified to and and it turned out not to be true. The White House was very tough about sticking with it. And and trying to get I Thomas through and succeeding. And doing the same with cavenaugh, and they had McConnell to help. And. I was not surprised that the the whole narrative turned quite a bit. And I was not surprised that it was. Such a partisan vote. Either. It was a lot of seemed deja vu. All right. To some extent. You know? I was I was very I was sort of just amazed one on all things considered one night. They had Hank Brown. Former Senator Colorado on who'd been on the judiciary committee went during the during the. Hill Thomas hearings, and he said repeatedly that. There really was no corroborative evidence from Christine Blasi Ford. And there wasn't a lot that there was so much more evidence into for in corroborate Anita hill. NET Hill's testimony, and that she had so much for so many more people should she told and. Contemporaneous lead who recalled it and who were willing to come forward, and she knew where everything had occurred. And she could Rick cite chapter and verse of what had happened and. And then he got off the air, but he voted to confirm Clarence Thomas. So everybody's brains. Just sort of recycled things the way they want them to be recycled. As always a question here. Hi, this is just curiosity. I have never seen anything in print about a spouse of a Justice before this year. And I suppose MRs Thomas is out outcoming, whatever she was doing. But there was a big expose about her opinions and the Justice saying that he relied on her and her opinions for so much of his thinking in his own positions. Do you interact with the spouses, I mean, do you have occasion to see their opinions or she asked me she has a long history of being very active in political conservative circles. So she was one of the top legislative aids for Dick Armey when he was Republican leader of the house. She. Campaigned vociferously against the ACA, the Affordable Care Act and be Ginny Thomas is that is it is not a seek her views are not a secret. Now, some people have spouses whose us are frankly, a little nutty and they're not. I I have no idea how much influence she really has in his formulation of views. But in the. And I suspect deeply that. At some point. She took a a less visible job. And I think probably at her husband's request. And I would not be surprised if that had been at the suggestion of the chief Justice is this sort of makes people question his views. But the other spouses as far as I know are not politically active. I'm sure they have political views, we all have political views. I guarantee you my husband has political views, and I do not always share them. What does your curious what level of access you have to the justices? Are they all equally accessible fly down? But this is one of those times when a pays who've been around a long time. So, you know, people when they're coming up. I knew Steve briar when he was Ted Kennedy's cancel on the Senate Judiciary committee. I knew Justice Scalia when he was on the DC circuit. I took him wants to the White House. I funds association with he was on the DC circuit. I knew I knew Kavanagh when he was not even on the DC circuit. So, you know, I knew Ruth Ginsburg when she was. Arguing cases in front of the supreme court. So. If you know people before they're become injustice, it's very advantageous in terms of knowing them well enough to have some access to them, but it's not access like you have two political figures because they can't talk about anything before the court. They can't I wouldn't ask them. They wouldn't talk to me at all. I wouldn't have any sense of who they are human beings. If I were to ask that kind of a question because they wouldn't answer it. Very limited. Right. It is extremely limiting. Right. It is extra. You really do when you cover the court to a large extent, you are basing your day to day reputat on what the court does not on who they are. What a great evening we are.

Now last hour, I talked about how Scott air force base was the area where a UFO was cited in two thousand one actually knows in two thousand January two thousand where are these police officers in Highland PD mill stat in several others Lebanon. Saw these three story UFO in the areas of flying triangle, and it turned out that. These police officers from several agencies was chasing chasing, this UFO. So when. You know, that whole area there when things go down, you wonder, well, do they have? Do they have other airports where this thing can be dispatched his Boeing testing something? You know, when you're when you're looking around you're wondering, well, what is causing all this chapter show up. Well, got an Email from a guy who said that. Well, this is what he claimed he says the chaff was dropped by an unidentified C one thirty two block radar tracking of unknown flying craft was being tested over the area. He said that he believed that they were trying to cover up. The fact that a fleet of UFO's were being tracked by both Scott air force base and Fort Campbell after it was reported that an unknown craft or drones were reported over Evansville airport. Now, this makes me think about what happened over Gatwick where they were seeing drones and UFO's and he shut down the airport for three days. So what's going on? Well, we wanted to call upon our investigator UFO Senator Peter Davenport, director of the dash reporting center. He's with the director since nineteen Ninety-four. He has been here to talk about active UFO reports and to encourage people who see you oppose report them in national UFO reporting center, Peter Davenport, welcome to ground zero. Thank you. Nice to work with you. It's nice to work with you to there have been booms. There have been earthquakes there have been all sorts of craziness going on in the areas. I spoke with regard to the chap. It's happened a week later. There have been some crazy reports of UFO's. And in fact, there was also Chapman blips seen in southern Florida. Also at the same time in the crazy thing is now the military says they're not doing chap runs. But I got an Email from some guy that says they're doing chaperones to hide UFO's from showing up. What do you know about you Afo sightings in these areas? Well, I reviewed the reports we have in our database for Florida, and it looks like we got a slew of reports from December. And we're getting quite a number from January of this year. We have about twenty reports already just from Florida for the month of January, and we had about forty or fifty it looks like maybe even sixty reports from Florida for last month December. So that's a that's a lot of reports. We usually don't post that many reports in aggregate for a month. From a small area of the country. Anyway, so. I would say that's quite a number of reports from one state. Yeah. I was just reading what seventy seven reports in Texas seventy reports out of Texas. And of course, probably newly reported UFO's in the general area where that chaff was laid people telling me that they've seen UFO's in those areas. And of course, the Email. I got from the guy who said that they were trying to cover up. The fact that fleets of UFO's been flying over the United States. Yeah. I would be surprised if the military is deploying chaff to conceal the presence of UFO that I can't say it's impossible that I don't know that it would really do any good these UFO's appear to be able to travel so quickly and accelerate so quickly that if they don't want to be seen on radar. They can be out of the country certainly out of the county and the state in a matter of seconds. So I can't speak for the military. Neither one of us can of course. But it seems unlikely that the military would be doing that engaging in that kind of operation. Well, a lot of what I'm hearing sounds a lot like the Gatwick cases the second largest airport in England, and the Gatwick cases that they were sit somebody last December saw UFO about sixty people saw UFO, and then it turned into several drones. They were blocking aircraft and they had to shut the airport down for three days. However, people say we don't see any drones. But the authorities insisted that they were there. Nobody said they saw them only sixty people said they saw UFO and then from there it was drones from there. It was UFO's. And a lot of people say it's all on your magic nation for the authorities were swearing that. They saw something out there. Yeah. I heard that report, and it would have been the object had been ascribed to being a drone. But who knows once government employees get their hands on data available propensity for molding it into a form that they prefer. So it's hard for me to say as to whether they saw UFO, but it is it's not without precedent. Of course. Because of the O'Hare case in November of two thousand six where disc covered over gates seven teen for several minutes. Actually, it's not as though it was trying to conceal itself from the people on the ground. Yeah. I remember that when it was all over the news. In fact, they had a video on YouTube of the reporter at the call. He took before he was talking with the witness in. He was excited. He says the says all around the newsroom, he says, everybody's excited about this UFO because you know, there's no way we can refute it. It was actually a UFO that was seen it when it went into the clouds and cut. A hole into the clouds and left a blue spot. And and he was like really excited about it. Right. And it left a hole because it accelerated through solid overcast at a blistering pace. It could be seen directly above gate C seventeen. I think the crewmembers saw as well. They leaned out there side windows and looked up at it. And it accelerated so fast that punched through solid overcast leaving a hole for several seconds that people can see blue sky through very very interesting case. Yeah, that's that's amazing. And there have been a lot of cases that Tyler roadway is reported to pilots who've seen UFO's over New Mexico pilots over Oregon. It's just been you know, that's one of the reasons why I think that Harry Reid is lobbying so fast for information because I think pilots and military and others. Don't want to have any harassment.

This is the breadwinner will show. Welcome. It is the bread. Hitting a bunch of different things today. So earlier this afternoon, there was an attempted sit down meeting that took place between President Trump vice president Pence Kevin McCarthy, Steve Scalise. Nancy Pelosi Chuck Schumer, Steny Hoyer. I think the dick Durbin was in there too. I think all those folks were together and the president apparently said pretty directly or very directly to speaker Pelosi. Okay. If we reopen all the government in thirty days are we gonna have border security done? And she said absolutely not. So pause this shutdown fight that we've got going on here. And I want to apply to I want to do a little what about is. I wanna do a little bit of what aboutism, but not in the usual, traditional talk radio sense when they go. Well, what about George Soros? He's awful. No think about this. Okay. Imagine the roles are completely reversed. So you have Harry Reid running the Senate. Got Harry Reid running the Senate you've got Barack Obama as the president. But you have John bainer as the speaker. So the Republicans are controlling the lower chamber the Senate and the presidency is controlled by the Democrats. Now, imagine there's a government shutdown and imagine the Republicans bainer and company match they'd spine in their in their backs. They went into Barack Obama and said we want you to rescind the ObamaCare mandate and will reopen the government. What that's my signature thing that Iran on. I got not that's not going to happen. Do you think? That in the interest of protecting the starving and the poor the children in the eight hundred thousand food stamp recipients, and the FDA people in the security, and the TSA do you think for a moment, Barry Hussein Obama, and the Democrats would have jettisoned ObamaCare to reopen? The government. No. And you would be crazy to think he would. So why is it so crazy that the president wants to border security? He's already said stuff's on the table. He's already said this now Nancy Pelosi. She's a nasty nasty person. She's really nasty person. Because last week I was monitoring this. When I was on the road, she comes out, and she says, I'll give you a dollar for border security. That's how much I'll commit to giving to you to reopen the dollar. So she comes out today. We're cry in shock. And she says this about the president taking a jab at him for having money. I mean, she's got some nerve she's got vineyards and a billion dollar fortune with her husband. I mean, this is a woman who was rolling in it. Okay. She likes her cigars with hun does. And so here here is his Nancy Pelosi. This is hurt. Smart alecky answer about reopening, the government with the shutdown go the president seems to.

"If you didn't go find the podcast and enjoy it. Donald Trump to play for you. But I gotta tell you the very first thing in the new year. I want to tell you about his Harry Reid. I am sorry to report. The New York Times has a story this morning. Harry Reid has a few words for Washington. The former Senate majority leader on Trump Schumer, and why doesn't regret ending the filibuster by Martin Leibovitch. And it's Harry Reid is dying. I did not know that Harry Reid has pancreatic cancer. He did not have long to web. And so he sat down with Mark Leibovich is really one of the more talented people out there. And eventually they got around to the fact that it was Harry Reid. Who has created? The biggest legacy for Donald Trump to supreme court justices. Thirty appeals court justices and Q more years of a fifty three forty seven Senate that will roll through as many as they can. And in fact, this is my first one hundred times saying majority leader McConnell in the Senate Republican caucus should go twenty four seven they should never recess. They should stay on the floor every day Saturdays and Sundays working on judicial nominations unless and until the Democrats changed the rules and stop being obstructionists or they must employ the Reid rule to change the rules unilaterally, which they can do. I don't mind if they work twenty four seven and keep the role in place. But they can't let they ended last year because of Jeff flake with nominee of the night circuit that never got through Jeff flake screwed his own state. He was so bitter about Donald Trump. He did not get a vote. He didn't get anything. All he did was pose. And and it was childish. I mean, really childish, and it hurt the people of Arizona, Jeff wakes laugh actors the Senator was hurt the people there, so Lindsey Graham is the incoming chairman of judiciary, terrific, chairman judiciary. He ought to set up immediately hearings for every circuit court nominee blow those through and then start the sixty hour clock. So that you understand the problem. Once you get through the hearing process and the committee process and some people don't right. They find stuff in their background. They they drop out whatever. But if you've got a vote from the committee to move the floor. It's a guaranteed nomination with fifty three senators you can lose one two three you'll start going to win. So someone might might have a Jones for you. But it doesn't matter. Have to find two more people to agree knocked about with you. Four more people to stop it takes four Republicans to stop a judge. That means these are lifetime appointments would be most important impact on on the Freedom Party. We are the Freedom Party. The Republican party is the Freedom Party. We have to do two things defend the constitution and defend the country. And defending the country means building that the Pentagon back up to that level of strength that no one will think about it. I cannot tell you what right over the weekend coming out of China. There are war gaming how to take out four of our carriers at once it's just a replay of the thirties with Japan with the co prosperity East, Asians fear, and I don't expect the Democrats to wake up to this Warren declared for president yesterday. But here's what Harry Reid said. This is from the Liebeck piece, the Trump era and reads illnesses have occasion, inevitable reconsideration of Reed's legacy and all its contradictions Affordable Care Act, which read managed to navigate past the oppositional tactics of his persistent nemesis. The Republican Senate leader. And now majority leader Mitch McConnell has so far withstood macabre in Trump's efforts to dismantle legislation. Not quite right, Mark. The no one has to do it. The mandate has gone, and it's been overturned by district court on its way to the fifth circuit. We'll see re was also prescient urging the Obama and congressional Republicans to go public about the investigation of Russian meddling in the two thousand sixteen election. The letter that Republican leaders agreed to co-sign weeks after they were briefed on the investigation did not identify Russia by name they did nothing or nothing that I'm aware of read said, and that baller investigation has yet to reveal anything other than the fact that the Russians did in fact hack and smack and distort and confused, and they're not our friends their enemies, if found some collateral crimes that have nothing to do with Trump like Paul Manafort being up to his years of corruption. And they caught general Flynn and ally, and you can't y the federal government that's a crime. I mean, nothing big nothing related to Trump. Here's the key graph belt. But McConnell's and Trump's own most substantial accomplishments today the appointment to the federal bench of an unprecedented number of conservative judges, including two supreme court justices. Who might well. End up hearing a challenge the Affordable Care Act was made vastly easier by Reed's decision in two thousand thirteen to get rid of the filibuster judicial appointments remains unrepentant about this. They can say what they want. He told me we had over one hundred judges that we couldn't get approved. So I had no choice. Either. Obamacare's presidency would be either Obama's presidency would be a joke or Obama's presidency would be one of her wish to think about that. Harry Reid is saying ObamaCare, plus a majority on the DC, circuit is all their wives to the Obama presidency. Is right. The Paris accord was a nightmare that JCP away with a nightmare the Libyan incursion with a nightmare the destruction of the Pentagon with a nightmare. The Obama years were terrible years disaster. Going to be ranked as the worst present. We get fifty years or forty years away from this. They're all going to say that was the worst president ever. He was so OWI o h Obama. It was in over his head. Right. Is that how it went Obama is in over his at OWI h Obama is in over his head that is the title of his years and the metric of MSNBC Ben Rhodes, can try and divert attention from that. But it's a new year. Let's be honest and Trump for all of the Mitt Romney took out after Trump and the Washington Post yesterday, basically announcing I'm here, and I might be running in twenty twenty. I have not talked together around me and gosh a year. What he's doing? But that that op Ed tells me that he might run in two thousand twenty. As a Republican. I think John Casey got a prayer John's kind of lost his mind and John Weaver's poisoned him. And anyone that's near Weaver. I'd now confirmed to myself, I'm just not gonna have anything to do with Jeff flake couldn't. I don't think he'd get shoes tied New Hampshire. He'd get blown out so fast that Romney would win New Hampshire lived there. Every summer for the last fifty five years, and of course, Massachusetts would go and maybe try and put together a few ticket with Joe Biden or someone from the center laughed and run for third party, bring United States together party. I don't know. I do know that this Harry Reid. Mark Leibovich piece is really quite remarkable. Well, happy new year to all of you. It's so good to have you with us generalissimo, Adam. And Ben say Hello to you. They were out partying hard last night's. They're a little bit woozy, but it's hard to try and get guys to come in on January second after a tough December thirty first Ohio State Buckeye dominated wash university of Washington last night. Now, I know we let the university of Washington huskies come back a little bit in the second half. But it was utter domination. And I think I want all my SEC Franson in Georgia and in Alabama and. Wherever the FCC is all the places, I think they've got power mostly. You know that Ohio State would have beaten Alabama in round one. And you know that Georgia would have beaten Clemson in round one. So the national championship. They should just go stage at somewhere else. State and Georgia. But boy, the White House can look he just looked terrific. You also now this new year brings. An enormous sense of uncertainty about the markets. I am not. I am really quite confident. I was looking over at the Wall Street Journal today, and they say investors are are mixed over. What might be happening? You know, what you're going to go up. They're going to go down that same question on that doesn't matter. What matters if the underlying growth, and the fed remains absolutely convinced as do I that we are going to have finally the benefits of the tax cut. We've had some but people like me. Who have been waiting all year long for their accountants, and Tom how much money they're gonna have this year? We have no idea we're waiting for the tax cut because you pay quarterlies when you work for yourself. And so you make guesses that you do the best the camp at the new rules have been slow in arriving. And then we're all going to find out what it's pretty good except the people in high tax states are going to be screwed. Really screwed. Now. I'm not in a high tax that anymore. It used to be lived in California. So I'm not going to be screwed as California New Yorkers. They might have little regional recessions, but Texas, and Florida they are booming boming that is the that is the one lesson. I gotta tell you over and over again, if you wanna boom if you want your life to get better, you want your kids to get better. You gotta become a Republican. Because the Elizabeth Warren platform that she rolled out yesterday when she announced she was running for president that is a nightmare for all of you. You do not want Elizabeth. And by the way, I've got a New Year's resolution to say something nice about everyone whenever I can Elizabeth Warren with a great law school, professor at Harvard at the highest level with the best students, and she was thought that by Tom cotton, and by others who had her. She was a terrific law professor, which means you can communicate. And it means that she can listen and have a conversation and be pleasant and live up to the norms and just be smart. She really really smart, but wow, is she laughed. I listen now. Wow. Is she to the left, and she might be the nominee? Although I think Bernie Sanders EMMY nominee. We'll see don't go anywhere America. There's a lots hat on the first live broadcast and twenty nineteen. It is the Hugh Hewitt.

"You know, this could go either direction, but like you mentioned, you know, Heller. Was considered the most vulnerable vulnerable vulnerable Republican in the Senate, and he still is by he's actually been able to get around some of the issues that were really big Thornton inside at the beginning of the campaign. One of the big issues that Jackie Rosen who is a political newcomer. She's a first term congresswoman she was recruited by Harry Reid to run for the house in two thousand sixteen. So she doesn't have a lot of experience, but she's been going after Heller really hard on healthcare. Heller was one of those senators who came out initially when Senate Republicans were debating repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act and said, you know, I have some concerns about this. But then he eventually voted for that motion to proceed voted for the skinny repeal of the Affordable Care Act to get rid of the individual mandate. So Jackie Rosenthal, going after Hans saying, you know, you flip flopped on the Affordable Care Act. She's been running these really memorable ads featuring this orange inflatable to man, the kind of thing you see outside the car repair shops as sort of I come here type deal all she's been running ads accusing him of being Senator spineless saying he'd been blowing with the wind. Of Washington, and that sort of been her biggest attack against him is that he's cave to Senate Republican leadership, and he came to President Donald Trump going against the best interests of Nevada. And what's interesting about that is Heller actually said that he was ninety nine percent opposed. Donald Trump is sixteen election. He's been slowly warming to the president over the last two years. It was really happy about tax reform campaigning on that issue. So Jackie Rosen's than sort of trying to keep her her head above water, and sort of just run a straightforward campaign and the biggest attack against hers. This fact that she's a political newcomer running ads against her saying she's accomplished zero in the house. She accomplished zero before she announced her bid for the Senate. So why do you want to elect her when you know, I've been around? He I I was in the house in two thousand six he's been around for twelve years. So they have that experience contrast as well. Interesting because Heller was was not pro Trump. In fact, looked like he was gonna face a a primary from a very very trope pro-trump candidate Danny hurricane. And apparently Donald Trump called often Danny Tarquini and told him to run for congress instead. And now Heller seems to be pretty Trumpian running running in this campaign. Exactly. Yeah. When when janey Tarquini and who's run several political offices in Nevada over the years has never won. But but frequently runs he got in that race, and he actually said that Heller sort of waffling on the Affordable Care Act to repeal and replace was one of his main reasons for getting in the race. He was he was unhappy that Heller wasn't out in front behind the president from the get-go. But then you had Heller changing as though ultimately being a little bit more supportive of the agenda and that president ended up getting behind Taylor. And actually recently called him one of his his his best friends in in congress rally out here in Las Vegas. Okay. I want to come back to this including the the importance of the of the Hispanic vote and. Role. It's gonna play in in Nevada. Nancy, let's come back to New Jersey.
