If you think Democrats and Republicans are drifting farther and farther apart on what they consider the most important issues of our times, you may be right. After all a new crosscut Elway pole of Washington voters reveals, in the coming midterm election, Republicans care most about the economy, while for Democrats, abortion is the top issue. But when it comes to the second most important issue, voters regardless of party are in agreement. They both want to know, is the candidate a Democrat or a Republican. Perhaps that sounds like an obviously important concern, but pollster steward Elway says, that wasn't always the case, the olden days, both parties were big tents. They contained various interests and issue positions. Most of the contentious issues got worked out inside the parties. Elway says Washington was long comprised of issues first voters, a strategy that allowed the state to elect Republicans Ronald Reagan and Slade Gordon to national office, while sending Democrats booth Gardner and Mike Lowry to the governor's mansion. Elway tells the online program CEO to CEO, there's less chance of a split ticket like that happening these days because sharply defined party values allow voters to choose their political brand the way they choose a breakfast cereal. But in one race this fall, that may not be the case. In Washington's third congressional district, where Republicans primary Jaime Herrera beutler out of office for voting to impeach Donald Trump, some GOP voters are finding Republican Joe Kent to extreme for their tastes, and are now embracing Democrat Marie gluten camp Perez.

"Political briefing. Here's what you need to know in politics for Thursday, September 22nd. The House passed a bill on Wednesday, aimed at preventing another January 6th by getting to the core of what was occurring that day by amending the electoral count act of 1887. Now, in the lead up to the election of 2020, the electoral count act of 1887 was getting some attention in the press. Because Donald Trump was threatening not to accept the results of the election. And there was some chatter about, well, what would that look like if the president of the United States loses and doesn't accept the result? And there were folks writing about the electoral count act of 1887 and that there are sort of a lot of holes in that law that you can try and drive a Mac truck through, which we then learned in the subsequent months and years. That's precisely what Donald Trump and his allies were trying to do when they were attempting to thwart the will of the people. And it resulted in that horrific insurrection on the 6th of January. This bill that passed in the house this week trying to amend the electoral count act to deal with some of the realities we saw, take place on the 6th, it was introduced by Republican congresswoman Liz Cheney and democratic congresswoman Zoe lofgren, two members of the January 6th, House select committee, and the goal here is to make it harder to overturn a certified presidential election. The House vote was 229 to 203, 9 Republicans joined Democrats in voting for the measure, including Cheney, Adam kinzinger of Illinois, Peter Meyer of Michigan, Tom rice of South Carolina, Jaime Herrera beutler of Washington state, John katko of New York, Fred up to the Michigan, Chris Jacobs of New York, and Anthony Gonzalez of Ohio. You'll note in that list of Republicans I just named, not a single one of them is coming back to Congress next year. They have all either announced their retirements, been defeated in primaries, and many of them voted to impeach Donald Trump. So what does this bill do? Well, it makes crystal clear that the vice president does not have the power to reject official state electoral slates or delay the counting of votes. This is precisely what Donald Trump and his allies were trying to get vice president Mike Pence to do leading up to the 6th of January, which as you know, hence, in his analysis of the constitution and of the law, rejected that plea, that has forever severed the Trump Pence relationship. Here was congresswoman Liz Cheney advocating for her bill on the house floor yesterday. January 6th was not, quote, democracy in action. And our oath of office is to support and defend the constitution, which provides the method by which we elect our president. Legal challenges are not improper. But Donald Trump's refusal to abide by the rulings of the courts certainly was. The Bill also addresses any potential delays a state could make to counting and certifying its votes. Cheney and lofgren say the legislation is critical and point to candidates currently running for office across the country who would have the power over future elections and are committed to Donald Trump's falsehoods and lies about the 2020 election. This is an actual problem that our democracy is facing right now. My colleague Daniel Dale has been following the midterm election candidates and he reports that the Republican nominee in at least 22 of this year's 36 governors races is someone who has rejected, declined to affirm, raise doubts about or tried to overturn the 2020 election. And governors play a major role in elections, most importantly, they certify election results from their states. Now the House bill actually directly addresses this. If a governor refuses to certify the election results, and the court orders it must be certified, the bill authorizes another state official to certify the results, making sure governors can not stand in the way of the election certification process simply on their own. Dale also reports that in at least 11 states, the Republican nominee for Secretary of State is someone who has questioned rejected or tried to overturn the legitimate results of the 2020 election. And remember, the Secretary of State, in many many states across this country, is responsible for the oversight of elections. But of course, this is Congress, and this is that sausage making process. Nobody likes to see, and the Senate has its own plan of how to deal with the electoral count act. And so there is no sort of swift passage of this bill that passed the house in the Senate. A bipartisan group of senators in July put forward their proposal of how to deal with this. It is not yet gotten a vote. Here's what Zola lofgren, one of the champions of the House bill and co sponsors of it told CNN on that matter. Congresswoman Cheney and I have worked for the last multiple months, probably 6, 7 months on a bill. There's a lot of overlap and similarities. There's a few distinctions. And if there are differences, we'll work them out. One of the main differences between the two bills is that the House bill essentially has tougher restrictions for a member of Congress to raise an objection to a state's electors. For example, the House bill outlines 5 specific and narrow reasons for raising objections, whereas the Senate version does not restrict reasons for objecting. One of the main things both bills have in common, the vice president's role. It is unclear if the Senate will get to a vote on its version of the bill before the midterm election. For their part, House Republicans claim they were left out of the House bill entirely. Some say they may vote on a Senate version of the bill that has a lot to do with Liz Cheney's presence on the House version Bill. Don bacon and Nebraska Republican from a swing district told my colleague Manu Raju that he felt like the Republicans simply had no say in this process.

"Of a recession and handing President Biden some good news heading into the midterm elections. The latest primary election results show central Washington Republican representative Dan newhouse who voted to impeach Donald Trump, heading easily into the general election, fellow Republican representative Jaime Herrera beutler in southwest Washington who took that same impeachment vote remains in a tight race against a Trump backed supporter and opponent. As we continue now, $4 million in compensatory damage more than 40 million in punitive damages the cost of for conspiracy theorist Alex Jones from the lawsuit targeting his claims the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting was a hoax. A closer look now with ABC News legal analyst royal oakes, who spoke with bell O'Neill. You know, this trial has been very different almost from the start really. Then we had Jones lawyers apparently mistakenly sending all of their clients text message records to the prosecution, what now if anything can be done about that if you're Alex Jones anyway. And according to the court, he did not take steps to try to get the documents back. It all started when during the case he was asked for all of his documents texts, for example, pertaining to sandy hook. And he said, I don't have any. I don't have any more than I've handed over. Then several days ago, his lawyer, as you say, accidentally sent to the plaintiff's lawyer. The family's lawyer, all of his texts for the last two years on and his emails and some of those texts were all about sandy hook. So it became clear based on that that he had live. And so that came out in court. And again, as usually a lawyer would say, well, it was inadvertent to hand it back. It's privileged. They failed to do that. So it's just double trouble for Alex Jones. And of course, the trial was weird in the sense that it wasn't a trial over whether he defamed the folks. That was already determined because he lost it by default. He failed to hand over his financial records that were required during the case. And so the judge declared, okay, you've lost. We're now going to have a jury decide how much you should lose and that's why they went to the 4.1 million for regular damages and are thinking about punitive right now. As for the trial itself, you'd have to believe even after a decision on punitive damages, this won't be the end of appeals process surely has to follow here. Yes. Once the losses in the books, then the defense Alex Jones has two options first, you can ask for a new trial, which he will and that will be denied almost certainly. The judge will say, no, I got it right. And the jury got it right. Step two then is to go to the Texas appellate court. And if they can find an error of some kind, they can either get it tossed out, or they can get a new trial. But based on all the weirdness here in the mistakes made by Jones and his lawyer, we wouldn't want to bet on his success on appeal. ABC legal analyst royal looks with us on the northwest news line. And Bill O'Neill with the interview, meantime, ABC's Aaron kotze reports Alex Jones will be back in court again very soon. Cases involving Alex Jones go before two different judges in Connecticut next week is more sandy hook families seek damage awards for the lies Jones told about the 2012 massacre. The families want to proceed with the trial on damages against Jones while his company free speech systems goes through bankruptcy. The damages trial was scheduled to begin September 6th, when 15 plaintiffs have said they would testify about the extreme emotional distress they suffered after Alex Jones claimed they were nothing more than crisis actors, perpetrating a fraud on the American people.

"And there's gonna be a percentage of America. That's the things he should be convicted. He's not going to be. But then there weren't gonna be any. Any witnesses. That would be unnecessary. They have no case. And then today we wake up to this news, Kyle Chaney and Andrew the Sea Desiderio. Something like that wrote this over at Politico because you need two people to write this story. I guess. The Senate voted unexpectedly on Saturday to permit the lawyers and Donald Trump's impeachment probably call witnesses following a surprise request by Democrats prosecuting the case to seek the testimony of a key House Republican who has publicly described evidence That the former president refused to pull back the violent mob. Um on January 6th. What a weird way to write that. How could the president pull back a violent mob? He didn't send them in. What a horrible way to write this. Completely on journalistic, The story continues. The 55 to 45 vote came after the House Prosecutors said they would seek the testimony of either Jamie or Jaime Herrera. But Butler Butler much sure Republican from Washington about her knowledge. Would call between former President House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy. Is violence escalated the capital Herrera Butler. I'm guessing his butler could be Buechler. I'm not sure who voted to impeach Trump in the House is indicated that McCarthy related to her the details of the phone call in which Trump denied McCarthy's pleased to forcefully call off writers. How you forcefully call if writer writers. Saturday's decision prolongs the Senate impeachment trial of Trump for inciting the insurrection that day, she's safe for allegedly exciting. The insurrection that day. By the way, there was no insurrection using ordered direction. It's on journalistic. Two senators were expected to conclude the trial later Saturday, they were surprised of the House managers asked for a witness testimony five Republicans join all Democrats in the vote to receive the motions to call witnesses. Saw Ted Cruz right before this program started saying, Okay to complain that game. This is stupid. It's a stalling tactic. They're losing badly on now. They're asking for witnesses. Well, two can play that game. We will also call witnesses now there was gonna be a vote to day Saturday at about three o'clock eastern time. On conviction or exoneration, He will be exonerated. No matter how long the drag this out. The House managers were made to look like fools in the past two days. They look foolish, especially Jamie Raskin, this guy who four years ago actually challenged the electrics out of Florida. He's pretending that it's unbelievably horrible and crazy that anybody's challenging the electors this year, although he himself did it four years ago. This is a sham. This is a political stunt. This is a PR move, and this is a move to try to get ad campaigns ready for four years from now they are going to lose so badly in 2022 in the House and the Senate, the Democrats because of what they're doing right now, they do this a lot. We always take a bigger bite than they can chew. They always overstep their always jumped the shark. And this is how Republicans and conservatives and those who love American values.
