We are lucky but it doesn't look like we are going to in May We've been any drew. If we opened in June or may we will eat only familiar.

We cannot anti teams by Jigsaw and spend seventy five percent of that money just barreled especially in big cities like media where we have to spend a lot of money.

"What back without fail and my conversation with former Senator Heidi heitkamp after camp decided to vote against confirming Kavanagh's a Supreme Court justice political donations from around the country started flooding in for her an outpouring of support from Democrats liberal activists across the country but back at home she was about ten points behind in the polls and her opponent was using the vote to make the case against her to say to voters that Heitkamp was just another Democrat who would vote along party lines heitkamp needed to explain her decision to the people of North Dakota. We did a political ad and there was a conscious decision on explaining the vote. I'm Heidi Heitkamp and I thought you should hear exactly why I voted against Judge Cavanaugh now I wanted to say I believe judge. Cavanaugh lied at his hearing honestly. I don't think he told the truth and even if he did he showed himself to be too biased to be impartial. I approve this message because I I believe a senator has to put politics aside and do what's right for our country. The you knew also that he that your vote would not be popular among your constituents and the up and you know this was the the greatest example that my opponent could show where I was you know with the mob so to speak what were the after effects like in terms of its impact on your race talk about that in you know the people you would meet in a parade <hes> who would talk about how disappointed they were guy a guy come up to me. He said you know I think you've done a great job. I think you're a great person. You know I just can't vote for you because you're one of the mob and they weren't. We're talking about just Democrats. They were talking about what they saw. During the CAVENAUGH hearing with women protesting and people saw this as a partisan vote on my part. It's your theory of the case is is the exact opposite of I'm with the mob and I think part of what the dynamic is is. You're trying to keep it tethered to the facts of the case here and like here's this person who's just not qualified fide but he came to represent so much more so you're no vote on cavenaugh felt the people almost like a betrayal somehow that you join forces against them your constituents. What do you think what do you think was the betrayal trail that they were seeing in? You somehow what what was that about. Many people said well look. You know you said you were GONNA go. Do what North Dakota wanted you to do and <hes> you know North Dakota. If you looked at a public opinion poll had supported the confirmation of justice cavenaugh. How could you possibly say she represents us when she took a contrary vote on a vote? That's important as a confirmation vote and I couldn't argue. It wasn't important vote because I think it is. I think it is a critical. No phone and so look you know. I'm there to exercise my judgment a my argument was this isn't a decision just based on what you take in a public opinion poll yesterday. This is a decision. You're making for thirty years. There's no no do overs. It's not like passing Dodd Frank in saying all we need to do some fixes for small community banks mean that they you don't have that choice in a confirmation to a lifetime position. He's going to be on the court for thirty years. At least I and and you know and what does that say to all the women who came forward who had so many stories that were as believable as Dr Ford's got a call the make and this will not surprise most political observers Heidi heitkamp at Democratic incumbent goes down in a deep red state North Dakota bigger deal than just one Senate seat Savannah Number Fifty Okay never fifty yes they will retain control. It's official even if they lose the rescue..

"Welcome back without fail and my conversation with former Senator Heidi heitkamp in two thousand eighteen heitkamp was coming up in the end of her first term in the Senate and campaigning for reelection and things in her state had changed since our last election in two thousand twelve which remember she barely won the percentage of North Dakota who self identified as leaning Republican had increased and Donald Trump was overwhelmingly popular in North Dakota her Republican Challenger had promised complete loyalty to the President Heitkamp had voted along with president trump more than almost any other Democrat but it was still only about half the time and she'd been falling behind in the race and then mid-election Justice Anthony Kennedy announced his retirement from the Supreme Court and President Trump had the opportunity to appoint yet another judge and his pick was Brad Kavanagh. When when was the first time you heard the name Brett cavenaugh? Do you remember where you were yeah. I mean I had gone to see the president <hes> the president <hes> very much wanted to make this bipartisan <hes> and invited me and I think Donnelley Joe Manchin to come over and just visit with him. The irony was it was just a day after he had been North Dakota campaigning for my opponent Sir remember this so we have a pick up. We have to pick a great one. Heidi will vote no to any pick we make for the Supreme Court you will be told to do so now. Maybe when the president invite you to the wait how she go and you know he said well who on this list. Can you support and I said I don't know these people on this list. <hes> bread Cavanez name actually wasn't on the the initial list but <hes> couple of days later <hes> the name was advanced of Brett Cavanaugh and and so I was one of the first Democrats to actually meet with Cavanaugh there was a a movement kind of in the caucus to not even meet with with Kevin <hes> <hes> you know kind of again <hes> the bitterness over what happened with merit Garland and so you know we met very early on with Brad Kavanagh <hes> you know. I guess I've said this before and I don't ever intend our U._k.. France Spring Court so probably be okay saying this but I I never thought Cavanaugh was intellectually the quality of Gorsuch <hes> he was more kind of a back slapper to me <hes> not nearly as detailed <hes> I looked for empathy. The I found a lot of empathy in some of the things that I talked to <hes> Justice score such about didn't really find an empathetic person in and judge cavenaugh. You said that you look for empathy yeah. How do you do that? I think you I don't WanNa get into questions because you know I think those are private discussions but frequently talk about things in their life that <hes> that they've experienced that have challenged them and how they overcame those challenges oranges and what they learned from those challenges. What what I think is important is what if they demonstrated in terms of their willingness to look at the other side of things and change their mind and I actually had many conversations about that like when did you go into an oral argument thinking one thing and come out and said wow I've had my mind changed because I think that's an important factor? Someone who listen <hes> the Supreme Court decides a lot of things that are basic to human freedom and basic to humanity and if you don't have a sense of empathy or a willingness to change your mind or a willingness to be <hes> <hes> persuaded. I don't think you belong on the court <hes> but you know again going back to izzy qualified he had already been confirmed for the second most important court in the United States the D._C. Circuit and he was the president's pick and adjust as I think that the election action of Obama had the consequence of making sure that he was entitled to a Fair Evaluation of his appointments which is the way it used to be in the Senate now. I wasn't going to deny that to this president just because I disagree with him MHM <hes> you know..

"And it's also not like, it's I understand what she's doing. But it's also not just like, but not the time. And it's not it's not the energy that we need. We need you to be. And also she's trying to buy for speaker of the house, and it's not a done deal that she would be speaker of the house. I feel like what she has stated as when she wants to do is it's going to be a transitional year. She doesn't like she's she wants to step down. And she feels like she does have the experience and the connections to be able to whip up all the different votes that shoe will need to get things passed. But at the same time, we don't actually need to because we have majorities. So just go past the things that you need to go and pass. Right. I'm feeling like I get that. There's a time to be bipartisan. But clearly when when we're dealing with a party that is infested with racist. Exactly. Insanity. We need to be holding court and taking sides for the people. Yeah. So I as much as I want to I don't want to blast anybody of my party, but she needs to take a different tactic. Yeah. Yeah. I agree. Also, I know no we're not in the we're trying not to be in the negative zone. But I am you know, I really do give snaps to Claire mccaskill and what was the other one? I that McCaw school lost her seats because she's didn't she voted against brat. Brad kavanagh. She wasn't going to vote for his confirmation. She knew she knew she's a democrat. Yeah. So Claire mccaskill was a democrat who lost her seat to Josh how Holly and there was another democratic because she's in what was that? She is in Missouri and was read she her and another Senator were in on. Heidi Heitkamp Hearn, Heidi Heitkamp, or in Trump territory that they're Trump supporter that Trump people were not gonna vote for for them. But they've they stuck with their conscience. They knew that voting for Brett Cavanaugh was not the right thing to do. And they knew that was gonna cost them the election. And they give them the I give them all the snaps for doing that. Because that's called integrity. Yep. Yeah. And that's what they get to make sure that they have stops a bummer of bummer that their electorate turned on them for that. But that's also that's how democracy works then on it is I know it is we're at such a fascinating point in history right now. And I feel like because we won the House Democrats won the house back, and so many women of color, people of color LGBTQ people. I feel like. I I'm not I still I have hope right now, which is good. But it's very tenuous, and it's a different kind. If you look like two years ago where we were it was like building up from nothing. Totally. We were imagining what do what it going to be? It was different. And now it's like we have ten we've got skin in the game. You know, it's not a tangible. We've got and we just have to you know, sort of keep working this actually, I would like to actually sort of pivot like what does this mean sort of moving forward? And I say something that I think is controversial. So in this pains me I already had my morning for this. Do the this election does say though, because of the losses of Beto and. Well, we don't know where Stacy Iran's is. But with Andrew gillum, these rockstar outsider, very young, vibrant. Yeah. By nordea. I do think that this actually put a nail. I don't think that you're gonna have a commonly Harris twenty twenty that. And I did not want this to be true white men's votes. Still matter. This country's racist. It's not right. We're so casual. Well, how can you not? It's literally just like the sky has blue this country's racists..

Takeaways from the Midterm Election

"Here's the Democrats got control of the house of representatives. And that's a win for the Democrats. The Republicans gained seats in the United States Senate could be as many as fifty five that is also a win for the Republicans and a win for the president because he ultimate firewall in. Any of these issues is the United States Senate? That's the cooling off point. They used to call it. And that's how I view it. So the Democrats won the house the state wide races tended to go to the Republicans. The Democrats picked up some governorships as well. And the twenty twenty campaign starts, that's how I view, but I'm gonna I'm gonna go right around the horn here and kind of get everybody's you'll start with. What is your takeaway from last night number one? The Republicans gained seats in the Senate. What does that mean, it means that judicial? Appointments will move forward under this administration. In other words, the president will be able to appoint and confirm judges who believe in the rule of law believe in the constitution that will indeed be his enduring legacy. Number two. There's a challenge that awaits democratic leadership in the house will they work with the president on bipartisan issues, which advance the interest of working and middle class Americans. Or will they focus on opposition? And investigations that question is yet to be answered. Well, and also Jay you're going around the horn, if a president and the president can can issue executive orders, and they can be changed by the next president legislation enacted by congress can also be changed. But judges have lifetime influence over the United States of America. He already has eighty four judges that have been approved during his first two years. A lot more needs to be approved. If you had to have one chamber of the congress that you have control over it needs to be the Senate. He did that and the Republicans have actually increased their majority in the Senate that will be the most significant thing to ensure an effective presidency of the next two years. So Jordan Republicans beat Bill Nelson. Republicans beat Joe Donnelly, they beat Claire mccaskill they beat Heidi. Heitkamp might be Jon tester. That race is still ten percent out tester has a thousand volt leader. So I mean, so again, those four all voted against Brett caviar all four try to play to the middle and try to act like moderates. And they're the people there states have said, no, we don't buy that. And by the way, your votes show, it clever can even tried to say, I'm not one of those crazy Democrats Sopher. She votes always against always against everything that would be considered even moderately conservative. So I think again, it was a great night's statewide for governor a for a lot of governors races. Well, Democrats did well and some other governors racist. But I will say that there's still more Republican governors in the country twenty-seven, then there are democrat governors. So you have a state advantage there of who is leading or states. It is Republican governors. I think the house. Yes, it could it could have gone better for Republicans. I think the president's right? There are a lot of Republicans that are going home that never fully embraced President Trump. And the kind of cleared them out of the house, and these are all up for real unlike the Senate these are all up for reelection in twenty twenty when President Trump is back on the fan Bennett. So legislation. It was always going to be partisan like the tax cuts. It was important to get that done in the first two years. They did it. Now, they're going to have to shift on legislation to things that are more bipartisan. I think the president's well positioned to do that the two additional items think about how much easier it would be to fill a supreme court vacancy with fifty four or fifty five Senate seats than with fifty one in the final point. I would make the most important power for continuing your draw down the regulatory burden on US companies that exist

This race has been really fascinates captivated a lot of people across the country.

While we were in Texas and asked him about that issue of impeachment. And I believe what he said was that he wanted to wait until after the Muller investigation came out to make that determination, but he wasn't against it in principle, which is the line that I it sounds like a lot of Democrats have been trying to take this election season. They don't want to talk about it..

Talk of entitlement reform takes over as midterms near

"There were not politically, correct. But they've done what needed to be done in order to unleash the animal spirits. Alan greenspan's. Alan Greenspan, Stephanie. It's pretty tough to argue with him. Are you sure he said he loves the Trump tax cuts or you gotta sit there constructive. Now. He loved he loved it. They were politically incorrect. Now, what he doesn't love is that we haven't done entitlement reform to accompany them. I wanna you know, it's coming to that. But he loves the Trump tax cuts one of the things about entitlement reform that we need is it surprises me the young people. Don't get more engaged on the entitlement reform ya you know, they sort of latch onto issues that are very very popular in the news. Entitlement reform or something I think people should really care about. Listen, the issue with the tax cut is it's a clear positive for corporate America. The tax code as it was far too complicated. But the amount of taxes that they cut you could ask Jamie Dimon. He will say, listen, I'm glad we got the tax cut. We didn't need it to be as much as it is because we are facing a massive deficit, and as far as the tax cut goes we're seeing corporations do so well two weeks ago. I the business council summit there hasn't been a hundred fortune five hundred there tickled pink, and they're saying they're spending there investing hiring and even without the tax cuts. Deregulation has been a huge positive for corporate America because remember in the Obama administration. It was not a pro business administration. And even if companies weren't faced with new taxes, the threat of regulations of threat more could be coming down the pike was preventing companies from spending. You're definitely seeing corporate America in a very good place book at the stock market one of the reasons the stock market is doing so. Well, suddenly. Corporations have twice as much cash on the books. So it is a positive obviously have a very tight labor market time to see wages push up more than they have this far. So Stephanie role year in the second bluest bubble in America. I always think that silicon valley's a bluer bubble the Manhattan, but I just had Marsha Blackburn on she's had a nineteen point swing in her direction over two weeks, Heidi Heitkamp has fallen apart. And she did a pratfall releasing the name of abuse survivors against their will yesterday that is blowing up. You've got mic. Sally surging ahead of cinema. Do you sense that the blue tide is a thing of the past? And that in fact, we're looking at it read time, I've talked about this a lot. I've never seen a massive Blue Wave coming thing that distresses me isn't are we going massive, bluer massive read the thing that distresses me is the hollowing out of the center on both sides. That is what I think is the most concerning and I think we're seeing it in both parties. Did you read David Brooks piece yesterday about the eight percent on the left? China today. Oh, are you really? Because that is that's the most interesting thing. But the noise comes from those two groups, that's the note, and by the way, our cable channels both left and right that noise. I don't know how we're ever going to break out of this you you are one hundred percent, correct. On a us. An example for you on Monday when I woke up I wasn't on TV. I heard what not the media thought of what Hillary Clinton said on Monday on Sunday about her husband, and Monica Lewinsky. Okay, saying it was not an abusive power. So I said via Twitter take something clear what the president of the United States has a sexual encounter with an intern. It doesn't matter how she behaved, blah, blah, blah. That's an abusive pallet. I'm not saying I'm not saying it's a soft. It is an abuse of power. When I tell you, Hugh, I got a nihil lead on Twitter, and I should hold on a second. Because of course, I've wanted what about Trump what about companies both things can be true abuse. Power is not unique to one industry wants sport, one one nation or one political party. But the tribalism we are seeing the absolute forgiveness of one side and an assault of another. Stop. It's unreasonable. It is going to be very difficult to break away from the profit motive of super serving the six in the eight percent. But I'm glad you're doing the David. That's what that's why I watched up and he going do the David Brooks. Brooks column is the smartest thing I've read in ages. Hey, man payments. Definitely real good to talk to you s rule on Twitter American, of course on MSNBC. Don't go anywhere. I'm coming right back America time to keep talking about these midterms. The red tide is coming everything

"I mean, if you're a democratic candidate, you know, you're you're, you're Barack Obama. You're running in North Dakota. It's a race. It's not going to be all that close. You're not gonna lose in the end. It's probably still nice to get really huge concentrations of democratic votes in majority native American parts of the state. But if you're Heidi Heitkamp and you know, it's not going to be a blow out, you're running a race that is close that you might actually have a chance to win if you are in a race that is as tight as that Senate race was in two thousand twelve, those couple of deep, deep, deep, blue counties. Those aren't just nice. Those are just heartwarming. That's how you win, right? It's a state wide race. You get votes wherever you can chase them all across the street. You try to appeal to as wide a group of North Dakota's as you can. But in particular, it's absolutely crucial in a close race that you turn out the voters who you know are going to vote for you an incredibly strong concentrations, right? If there's any place in your state, you're. The democrat candidate. I don't care who you are. If there's some place in your state where you know you're going to get more than seventy percent of the vote in that county, you have to turn out the voters in that county. And Heidi Heitkamp did in two thousand twelve and strong native American support for Heidi Heitkamp in North Dakota is a big reason why right now there's a democratic held US Senate seat from that red state. And the closeness of Heitkamp's last race. The crucial support that she got from eight of American voters that did not escape notice among Republicans and in particular among Republicans who are now making decisions about who's gonna be allowed to vote this next time and who might find it exceedingly difficult to vote this next time. And you may be noticing a sort of theme these days in the news, right? We're twenty two days out from the midterm elections. As of right now, late last week, we reported a story out of Waller county, Texas. Waller county is a county that's about seventy percent white, but it's also home to a historically black college purview AM where the student body is over eighty percent black. Under constitutional law under crystal clear supreme court precedent college. Students are allowed to vote wherever they live, which includes if they live at college prairie view, am. Students can vote in Waller county, Texas. Nevertheless, Waller county Texas keeps coming up with new ways to try to keep students at that college from voting new hurdles, new obstacles for those students to make it harder for them to vote over decades students at purview in that had to fight for their right to vote fight for their ability to vote year after year. Election after election after election after election this year, that perennial fight incredibly included this year. The county arresting the field director for a local democratic congressional candidate. When that field director went to the Waller county courthouse to hand over a letter advocating for the voting rights of the students at that college that they should be allowed to vote without hassle. They arrested the guy after he after the officers asked him what the party. Affiliation was of his candidate. He told them democrat, they arrested him. We told that story here on the show last week. Then Friday night after much gnashing of teeth and renting of garments Friday night, the Texas secretary of state local county officials finally announced the okay, okay. The students at prairie view AM will be allowed to vote this year like everybody else, no strings attached, no extra hurdles, no supplemental paperwork that they have to fill out to satisfy the county that they are indeed allowed to vote. So we reported on that fight and that win in that fight. Last week. We've also been reporting over the last few days on the situation in the great state of Georgia where the Republican secretary of state amend named Brian Kemp has made it his mission to rip up the voter rolls as aggressively as possible over the last few years in in preparation for his own election campaign for governor this year for context here the last.

"At home and fallout from the months-long controversy over now Justice Brett Kavanagh's confirmation process with tamra Keith NPR and Shawna Thomas of vice news Hello to both of you. It's politics Monday. Alright Tam it seems like they Brett cavenaugh thing went on for months in truth. It was only what a month or two. But what is the poll? Can we tell right now what the political fallout from it? Maybe. I think it's hard to know. Right. This second. What we do know is that in the midst of it PBS NewsHour and had a poll and over the course of a week. There was a dramatic shift among Republicans in terms of the energy that they had heading into the midterm elections. Now does that energy and enthusiasm? Hold for the next couple of weeks unclear. You know, the the emotion of happiness is generally, not a sticky or as strong as the emotion of rage and outrage, but one interesting thing that I saw developed by I traveled with the president this weekend to his rally in Kansas, and he very quickly turned this not to be a celebration of confirming Brad Kavanagh, but going on the attack against Democrats for what they did in this process. He he very quickly turned it into his base against the angry mob is he called the Democrats Shawna, which suggests that he thinks that's the effective way to to use this well to show that he he actually got a win out of this. And that if you give him more Republicans he will continue to get wins. But I think this angry mob construction, I think Mitch McConnell used similar words on Saturday. After the vote is a troublesome one for the Republicans because the women who are on the hell, we saw these protests. There was rage. It was about Cavanaugh. But it was also about something bigger. It was about their bodies. It was about violation. It was about the ability to have some kind of power in this situation. And I think if you dismiss that or belittle it or think it's going to go away that is something especially I think house women running for the house will try to us. So we may see a direct oppositional configuration if you will of this this mob description that the president came up with President Trump on Air Force One was asked what message do you have for the women that are devastated by this outcome after Brad Kavanagh was was accused of sexual assault. And President Trump said, I don't think there are women who are devastated. I don't think that exists now President Trump might be talking to different women then than we are. And and he is just dismissing it out of hand that probably works just fine with his base. But you know, as as I talked about before in that poll Republican enthusiasm jumped to get close to where democratic enthusiasm and the enthusiasm of female voters who have been. Riled up and angry and frustrated ever since two thousand sixteen and not just frustrated but volunteering and donating and running for off exactly and that running for office point. And the thing is there are lots more women running for office this time it's going to be a historic election. But a lot of those women are on the democratic side. And people have looked at the numbers. There's just not as many Republican women who are running for the first time, if they're democratic women they had the energy, they have the energy, and you're going to give them the chance to have a vote against Cavanaugh that's against Trump. And that is against this feeling that you are not taking them. Seriously, democratic women who are running you're going to take advantage of that. Tammy you mentioned a poll. There's there is a poll that shows, and we talked about this last week to some extent. But that shows yes, Democrats are still ahead. Among for many of these house races that are in play this year. But that the dynamics there are changing a little bit. Yeah. And you're talking about the Washington Post that is out today and. In some ways. It's a battleground poll, it looks at the map of of the districts that are competitive, and it says that there are a lot of very close races in this relatively large house map of districts that are competitive. Most of those tight races close races are in in districts that President Trump one President Trump won those districts in many cases by a large margin. And the fact that they're close is giving Democrats. Reason to to feel comfortable and that we've seen that coming Shawna, haven't we? I mean, the the house these house races that are in play tend to be in places where Democrats feel more comfortable, exactly. I mean, a lot of the ones that the that the Dietrich will see the democratic congressional campaign committee is targeting our house races. Where there is a Republican who is currently in the seat, but Hillary Clinton won that district in two thousand sixteen election. So that gives them reason to believe that there are Democrats who are up for grabs who could come and vote if they can convince them and get them out the Senate on the other hand, and we've talked about this tamra is that is such that a lot of these states that are in play Republicans there. They're red states there states where Donald Trump did very well, Democrats are worried, right? So whereas on the house side, it's a map that is pretty good for Democrats on the Senate side. It is a historically terrible map for Democrats heading into this. The fact that they even think that there is a margin. Chance that they could come out ahead is is a sign that this is a unique year. But you you went to North Dakota, and and did some reporting there that's a state where you know, if Democrats have any hope of taking back the Senate, they really need to hang on to North Dakota, and and Heidi Heitkamp in public. Polling is significantly behind at the moment issuing she's behind. You're in West Virginia. Shauna. Joe manchin. Had a tough race. It's a very very Republican pro-trump state. What is it looking like? Well, it looks like we did a focus group in West Virginia Friday night, it will air tomorrow night and vice news tonight, and one of the things we saw word that some of these people who we considered sort of swing conservative Democrats. They seemed to like the fact that Joe Manchin was the lone democrat who voted for Brad Kavanagh, they thought it was him representing what they want and these are people who voted for Trump, but also support mansion, and it seemed in this was an unscientific focus group. It was twelve people. But it seemed that if mansion was trying to connect to the people who would vote for him. He probably did it pretty well. And the Democrats were in the group aren't gonna vote for the Republican. Well, and and it is a state by state thing as you mentioned, Heidi Heitkamp, and she voted against judge Cavin on it's one of the things factors in. But for now, it's politics, Monday tamra. Shana thomas. Thank you both. And as mentioned that report on my trip to North Dakota this weekend, we're going to have that tomorrow night. A look at the Heidi Heitkamp Kevin Kramer race. As we've been reporting addressing.

"We look at everything we cast a very broad net to see what's out there. Some won't says a crash is the most deadly transportation accidents in this country since February of two thousand nine a day after Brett Cavanaugh officially became a Justice of the supreme court. There is still plenty of bitterness over the long off an ugly battle over his confirmation. Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell told CBS's face the nation. He thinks getting cavenaugh onto the court marked not only a big political win, but a moral victory too. I think we were able to establish it. The presumption of innocence is still important in this country. And that the Senate is not going to be intimidated by these kinds of topics democratic North Dakota Senator Heidi Heitkamp says she just couldn't bring herself to vote for cavenaugh given all the questions about him that were raised or the confirmation process for me. It does not appear that he's he's somebody who should be given a lifetime appointment to the most important court in the world. Her comments came in an interview for CBS's, sixty minutes. The third woman to accuse Brad Kavanagh of sexual misconduct says she's outraged by how her allegations were handled. Julie sweat Nick released her statement through her lawyer, she says she feels like she's been re victimized over the past two weeks after having the courage to come forward.

"Like even from the beginning where we're Republicans were saying, well, do we don't we need an investigation or what exactly who exactly is the right person to ask questions of Christine glossy Ford, but it never actually mattered what Kavanagh did or didn't do. I don't think that's true. Really Murkowski may have had some issues with voting for Cavanaugh prior to this, but I think Collins would. I mean, I don't know. Colin skill may vote for her but the for him. But you're saying that her vote would be based on what she genuinely believes happened. Thirty years ago. We're just political viability. I don't think any of them give a crap about what specifically happened one way or another. It is right. What do they think is going to. With the public revelations, how is that going to interact with their constituents? Exactly. Will it hurt them? And so the cabinet stuff does make a difference. One way or another. If if it had been. If Blasi Ford had come forward and been far less compelling, I think than Kevin, I would be fine right now. He's still may be ultimately, but it had had. I don't know what cabinet could have done worse, but maybe there. I mean, if there had been another allegation that came out this week that was more prominent or maybe if you know. If. Mike, Mark judge had said, yeah, it's true, right? I think that would have changed things without a doubt. So. You know, I think these things matter not because of the way that they influence the politician in their mind and their sentiment. Although I think Heidi Heitkamp we should note this. It is clear this cavenaugh thing has hurt her. Yeah. And. I think she, I think for her a largely, it was a personal measure. If she may feel that she's going to lose this election anyways and which makes the decision more about like how she wants to go out. Although I think there's also argument, it's going to be interesting to see. With the cabinet hearing behind her right? If if the Republicans vote against cabinet, ultimately Collins and Murkowski who bring cabinet down. The pressure's off a Heitkamp if cavenaugh gets in the pressure's off a hike camp. So I think she's going to have another month to reset the campaign, go back to the issue of health care, which was working for her down South Dakota. So I. We'll see. Do you think Trump has stuck with cavenaugh because he just wants to win and he sees having to pick somebody else who he obviously would as losing or do you think it's I don't know if you've been following the really specific legal reasons why he wants Cavanaugh on the court for what's coming up when it comes to presidential power when it comes to, you know, there's a case about the sovereignty of the presidency or a mix of the two. I'm jerk to mix of the two. I think also, you know. It's unlikely, but there's a scenario where they do not. Confirm cavenaugh. The midterms happen, Democrats win. And Jeff flake in. Susan Collins say it's not appropriate to to confirm somebody in the lame duck session. I period between the election in January. Yes. If the, if the if the if the Senate is going to change hands. I think that's a far fetched, but it's but it's possible. It's possible. I mean, like maybe you know. McConnell thinks there's a ten percent chance of that happening. It's dangerous and why I don't want to go there, but even then doesn't Trump get his pick after January. Like we'll, we'll Democrats, actually, I mean, I know online people say, if that happens, Democrats should say, we're going to do what you guys did to garland, but they're not going to do it. Hey, I'm not sure that they wouldn't do that, but they certainly could say that in get a pick that is not on that list of the Heritage Foundation that may be. I mean, the idea that they wouldn't use their leverage at all seems even for Democrats, likely, unlikely. I mean. They still got to win an election. Two years from January or at that point, twenty months away. So I, that would be stunning to say, oh, well, yeah, we'll now will now we will be the ones to confirm Kevin. I don't think that's not happening. So. I, I think there's just too many different. I mean, who knows why Donald Trump wants us, I think on some level it's also he doesn't want cabinet to go down for this reason..

Kavanaugh tells senators he will not withdraw nomination

"Whatever she has to say, let him say what he has to say. And at the end, the the senators will make a choice, President Trump laying out the basics for Thursday. Senate Judiciary committee hearing judge Brad Kavanagh on his accuser, Christine, Blasi Ford will testify senators. Let's get the latest now from ABC's. Karen Travers from the White House. Good morning. Karen, good morning. So. This all got pretty much finalized yesterday. Didn't it with her attorneys weighing in? Yeah. You know, the details are that'll be ten AM eastern time on Thursday, she'll testify first Cavanaugh would go after that. She is requested in her lawyers have requested that the committee. Call other witnesses, including Mark judge the man who she says was present for this who he has no recollection of it. It doesn't look like that's going to happen. The Republican committee members have certainly made clear the moving forward with these two witnesses the other issue that is unresolved from the Christine Blasi Ford end of things is whether or not it will be the Republican senators asking the questions of her all of them are male. Her lawyers have said that they believed that the senators have been dismissive of her story, and they want them to ask the questions, but there certainly been rumblings of outside counsel coming in to do it instead of them. Yeah. That's interesting chess match because I would have thought she would have wanted. Maybe what they offered a female attorney on the Senate side to question. But she says, no, she wants those senators to ask Kansas more complicated. Now in light of this. Accusation from Denver Ramirez who has Colorado ties. Yeah, it is in some ways because you have Diane Feinstein the ranking democrat on the Senate Judiciary committee calling for an immediate postponement of any further proceedings as she puts it related to the nomination of Brett Cavanaugh that could of course, include Thursdays, very intimidated testimony from Christine Blasi Ford and Cavanaugh himself. She is asking that this new allegation. Brought by Deborah Ramirez. Published yesterday in the New Yorker be referred to the FBI for investigation. They also the Democrats have been pushing for that for Christine Blasi Ford's allegation and the Republicans. I have not made those same calls. We know. Of course, the president has said he's not asking the FBI to do that. He thinks that it's just not what they're going to be moving forward on. Do you get a sense of if this accuser, the first accuser testified today, which way this the Senate panel would go I can't say at this point? I think a lot of very key votes are holding things close to the vest till they see exactly what she said. Says even the president last week was saying, you know, if she makes a credible case he would have to make a decision that was certainly caught a lot of people's years here in Washington. But right now, there's no rumblings that he's considering moving down his list that he had when he first was considering judge Cavanaugh earlier this summer this confirmation went from using the sports parlance to a slam dunk to a layup. Maybe a free throw. Now, it's getting like to the realm of a three point line. And I understand there's kind of seven senators that are somewhat hedging their bets at this point. Yeah. And you know, they're the senators that everybody has been focusing on even before all of this came out. What is Susan Collins going to do what is Lisa Murkowski going to do what are those senators the Democrats who are from red states who are up for reelection? Joe Manchin, Joe Donnelly, Heidi Heitkamp, those are the ones everybody's been keeping an eye on. And you know, I think everybody's just waiting to see how this plays out over the next three days. It's going to be very busy in Washington. This sure is thanks for laying. It all out for us. We

"And so we're seeing this retreat and this this migration of people ought to rural America. We've gotta get broadband services which could be a multiplier in the healthcare space as well. We have got to do everything we can to identify what are the critical healthcare needs that we expect to achieve within proximity and how do we do that and pay for it so that we can maintain a provider network. And that's the challenge in rural healthcare. And that's the challenge I've been talking to CMS about. I think that's the challenge that I talked to. To my providers all the time about, you know, it's interesting I I've met with our healthcare North Dakota hospital sociation and I said, look, I'll work on forty fi. You know, I'll work on all these issues. I'll work on three forty b. all work on physician supervision. I'll work on critical access and you know, we've got our list standard lists. They come in all the time. These are things that we absolutely have to maintain to provide services. I said, look up, what does your delivery system look like in twenty years? How are we going to be able to afford that? In twenty years? How are we going to maintain a provider network without certainty of reimbursement? You can't maintain a provider network and North Dakota medical association, and our our medical school under the able and very capable leadership of Josh win. Our dean who's a cardiologists has really begin to address the workforce challenges in rural America because this is this is the other side of the coin, which has reimbursements, but you've gotta have workforce. You you, you aren't going to get workforce without a reimbursement system that allows people to make a living. You mentioned that your husband is a physician. How often do the two of you disagree on issues? He's much more liberal on healthcare issues. I do have to tell you about. Yeah, you know he would. He would go to a single payer system and and I think that's not politically practical, and I think that we might lose a lot of innovation if we do that, then that leads into my last question. You're a democrat President Trump when your state by more than thirty points or running for re-election. You agree with the president on some things, disagree on others. That's how the Senate was intended. There aren't many of you left though. How can we get more Heidi Heitkamp's who are in the middle of the road? Is that even possible anymore? I always said if people who are listening can think of a visual. I talk about when I when I first came to politics ideology, the political spectrum was like a bow, tie in big, not in the middle, lots of moderates, but fanning out to more ideological, you know, polls Senator is is user hands to make a bow, tie a bow, tie. I now it's a dumbbell and I, I don't mean that ironically, but. But you've got huge ideologies on either side and then this this, this thin bar of moderates that connect the two. And you know we until we build on that base of moderates we will not achieve results because it will be ideological driven. I have. I have a back feeling picking up that big dumbbell. Well, well, I always tell people there was a study done once I was fiftieth most conservative in the forty ninth most liberal. So you know, kind of meet in the middle. That's a big win for you. Well, I, I mean that but but what I, what I tell people is check your ideology at the door and bring facts and data. And then let's start looking at. Here's a great example in healthcare, there's an incredible amount of innovation that's happening in the self insurance area. These major corporations are greatly reducing their healthcare costs by managing their workforce and the healthcare of their workforce and really innovative and creative ways, and it's driving down their healthcare costs smart for them. They have a captive audience obviously, and and they have the flexibility because they're going to self insurance programs. Meyer agreement is what have they learned and how can we learn something from them. And if we have one size fits all, are we going to be as innovative as what I mean? I, I really think that we have to be very, very concerned about. Versity and delivery systems because I think once we go to one size fits all, we may miss the kind of innovation that we need to make health care affordable and practical and.
