"Over at townhall, Courtney O'Brien former attorney general Eric Holder has suggested to his fellow Democrats. One way to put their stamp on American history. Especially in light of Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell, President Trump's agenda historic span the supreme court. He made the far fetched proposal last week at Yale Law School and Columbia University. Now, I'm telling you. Both Kirsten gillibrand and Pete buddy. Geek, the mayor of south bend, Indiana have suggested they could support this. But a gig said he got the idea from the Yale Law journal, Yale Law journal, you idiot. Was tried in the nineteen early late. Mid nineteen thirty s late nineteen thirties. Let's see. But again, it's not one for political tradition. He also promoted abolishing the electoral college. So now holders behind Jill. Lebron is behind it. Because she's behind anything that she thinks will help her. Then we have this. From our friends at five thirty eight. Nathaniel wreckage. The national popular vote initiative seeks to set up an interstate compact that would effectively doing Enron around the electoral college without actually abolishing it because you see, ladies and gentlemen, they don't have the votes to amend the constitution. So they don't bother. Which require the lengthy laborious process of building broad bipartisan support to pass a constitutional amendment. The logic behind the compact is that the constitution already give states the power to award their electoral votes, how they see fit. So each state that signs on to the compact degrees to award its electoral votes to whomever wins the national popular vote not necessarily the candidate who wins that state. So a candidate can win your state. But the electors vote for the other candidate because the other candidate won the popular vote throughout the country. How do you how do you like that completely undermine state authority? There's just one catch. They write the agreement only goes into effect when the states who've joined or with a total of two hundred seventy electoral votes enough to deliver an automatic victory to the popular vote win a currently eleven states. Plus the district of Columbia representing one hundred and seventy two electoral votes have signed onto the compact, but Colorado, and it's nine electoral votes are our prime to join in the next few weeks. The state house and Senate recently passed the Bill and governor Jared polis has said he will sign it. That would bring the total number of signatories to thirteen and the electoral vote count up to one hundred and eighty one two thirds of the way to seventy. Now, the compact just needs to bring on enough new states to get eighty nine additional electoral votes, and it would radically change how the United States picks its president. So there's that radically changed the supreme court radically change how the United States president. Now, we also want to radically change how we create congressional districts and Eric Holder and others behind this clothing. Barack mill house Benito Obama. This is from Fox News from a few weeks back. Former President Barack Mel house Benita Obama. Nonprofits, nonprofit political organization is teaming up with his former attorney general holder to launch a campaign against gerrymandering. The all on the line campaign, which will also work to protect the Affordable Care Act reduced gun violence. Expand voting rights is part of a push in recent years by high profile Democrats took a tail the use of gerrymandering across the country. Now, why would they support this? Well, I'll tell you why. Because they go into court against the administration that says only citizens should be counted in the census why? So when you in portion the number of seats that each state gets in the house of representatives that that's only based on the numbers citizens. It's not based on citizens that can be based on any human being who's here, including legal aliens. That means that these dark blue states that are welcoming to illegal aliens, we'll have more congressional seats than those states that uphold immigration laws, enter not importing or welcoming illegal aliens. You said this is all an effort to truly destroy Representative government. This is all really an effort to destroyed crucial pieces of our constitutional order while you really have to laugh or cry.

Ten Catholics and Krista Kafer Cavs are coming. This is the new Catholic Kafer show on Denver's talk station. Six thirty. Hey, how are high honor to be with you though? Neither of us are high except on life and God. And because we're gonna be talking to governor lecture at police at six zero five do not miss that sister Krista in the house fresh from educating you how you doing great love those youths. They're they're good kids to be here. It is a match made in heaven or somewhere. But it's wonderful. Why thank you. Yes. And boy I failed to deliver an A T's. We're about to have Nicosia, by the way from the Denver posted a really nice balance story on the election results, and we'll use that to springboard and other stuff. But I hate it. When I'm listening to talk show and the host teases something and they don't deliver. I had t spinning off a Kathy walkers report and see football coach who the next coach would be. And then I realized sister Krista that was an unfair tease because I have been right. So often over the decades about see football that that's a good person was going to assume I really knew who the next coach is going to guess, I don't. Don't. But I I think I have a pretty good guess. All right. We'll deliver on the teas but understand please. This is a gas. Don't bet money on this in Vegas or anywhere else. But I'm putting my wallet away. I is a hope the first is a hope Mike Shanahan and the second is. That could happen and the second would be less miles, the former LSU coach les miles. So if I'm a Betty man Jesse gives a thumbs up to that and jesse's sports guy. My guess is these these sources don't break all at once last night, unless it's true and Rick Georgia's a super smart guy, the AD at you. He does not he does not make a move this early right now. I mean in even internally unless he already has his guy interesting, and I know it's politically correct to say guy or gal. But that'd be pandering here because they're not going to have a female head coach. I think it's more likely it'll be now. Yes. So anyway, all right. We've got other things talk about let's bring up Nick Nicosia did a really nice job. I thought I know you agree sister in the with this post piece on Sunday breaking down election results. And Nick, I have my beefs with the post at times about ideology. But I just thought she did a nice down the middle job on this that gave the reader, you know, more insight into the facts here. He knew the facts of where ballots were cast and where they weren't in by home, and from there, we can springboard in all sorts of speculation. But how you doing man thanks for being here. I'm good. Thanks for having me. Thanks, Nick for those who have not had the benefit of consuming your piece yet. Can you give them an overview of your findings? Sure, basically, what the piece argues that Republicans in Colorado going into the twenty twenty election are going to have a really really really big question to answer. Which is how do they bowl? Appease respect, we're pub- the Republican base. Those who are with Donald Trump until the end and core unaffiliated voters who overwhelmingly turned out any midterm election in numbers. We have never seen in Colorado and those unaffiliated voters overwhelmingly, you know, cast a vote for Democrats in sort of a protest vote against the the Trump administration's really big problem a riddled they're going to have to answer over the next two years if they wanna see Cory Gardner reelected. We did have a Blue Wave. It was a a series of waves that happened in two thousand four two thousand six and two thousand eight and then those gains were rolled back over time, particularly in twenty ten is it possible that this big Blue Wave could be countered by another wave a red or purple wave Sunday that that changes. And if so what would it take to make that happen? Of course. I mean looked a lot can happen in two years, and I'm working on some follow up stories to to ferry question. I mean, look if the Democrats end up electing someone so far to the left that they make Donald Trump. Look, centrist. That's a possibility. Right. I could be a really really big turnoff to Colorado's middle of the road voters anything to depress, you know, the democratic turnout as well. So nothing nothing is. So when it comes to elections, and especially in a state where? The largest voting block is unaffiliated voters, but evidence right now suggests that a state to Donald Trump five points in twenty sixteen that we saw a ten point spread. Now just reported this at the spread between Jared polis in and Walker people is ten points the spread between Mike Hoffman. And adjacent pro has grown to eleven points dot those are some really big swing back toward the Republicans order to counter that kind of spreading. And let me ask you about the data Nicosia from the Denver posted a real nice fact-based piece in the in the Sunday post now in terms of the assumption, Nick that you were just mentioning that. This is kind of a protest vote by unaffiliated against the president. And lots of smart people are saying that I think Christie may be saying that as well. But the reason I just don't want to automatically jump to that conclusion is the fine point. You just made in part, which is that. Wait a second. Donald Trump out performed really good Colorado Republican candidates by about five points mean he only lost Hillary by five and a lot of really good GOP candidates are losing by closer to ten and the other is. Endure police spent very wisely in very efficient way. What twenty two twenty three million dollars a lot of it? Having people knock on doors across the state, and I'm just I just don't think we've had a full opportunity yet to measure the impact of that. Sure. So something do you wanna keep in mind, those that when Donald Trump won the presidency when he won the electoral college, Mike Hoffman? You know, he won his district by nine points. So that's another piece. That's just one other piece of data. You want to keep in mind. The where I'm coming from. When I was talking to voters on election day people who had cast spells people who are in their ballots day said over and over and over again, they were voting straight Democrats in large part because of Donald Trump. I wanna be clear that, you know, Jared polis ran a very very, very smart campaign. He defined the the debate he got out early. I think one of the points. I make in this article is that Walker Stapleton never was really able to come to the table with any sort of defining message Christmas point there could be a wave back. You know, if there is a real if Cory Gardner can come out with a really strong, Colorado. I message which I'm I'm beginning to hear is is what we might see. Of course, he could deliver something if he can really localize this election. When you have someone like Donald Trump, President Donald Trump who want every election to be about him. That's where they're going to run into trouble in Colorado. And I just really really really think going back to what the Republicans were telling me after the election. They have to come to the table with ideas. They have to meet them local ideas, they have to make them positive ideas to really convince those unaffiliated voters that they have deserve a chance to govern here in the state. You know, Nick, a lot of really thoughtful folks on the on the Republican side people like Cory Gardner people like Mike Kaufman and a number of seats around the country super thoughtful, people people who criticized President Trump when he's has said some outlandish things, but if work with the president and other other issues where there's commonality those guys were in a really tough position this last election because if they distance themselves from certain comments by President Trump, then the hard right the far fringe attacks them, and so what? I worry about is. You have a wonderful person. Like Cory Gardner, who is his thoughtful. He does work with the president. But he also criticizes the president when the president says outlandish things what if he ends up attacked by the far far, right? And they ended up walking away and not voting. I I think that could be a problem. Yes. I think you said it all I mean, again, it goes back to the question of how can you turn out the base, right? And how do you convince unaffiliated voters, and that is that's the riddle Republicans have to solve. I mean, I saw you know on Facebook after the election, some very very very convicted Donald Trump supporters here in Colorado asked why didn't Donald Trump come to Colorado? Why you know, why wasn't there a full throated endorsement of him from Mike Hoffman from Walker Stapleton. Doc could have got, you know, more Republicans out, and I wanna point out that more Republicans did end up voting in the two thousand eighteen election, then in the twenty fourteen election, the last midterm, but it just wasn't enough especially when you have nine hundred thousand unaffiliated voters on to two one for the Democrats. That's math that that's really hard to work out. It's a math wave, right? And all and Nick, that's one reason I enjoyed your piece so much again, there were a lot of lot of good facts in there to chew on. All all I'm saying is I think it pays to be cautious. If you're the GOP right now about overreacting to this data until you have a chance to learn more and measured further because there are other possible explanations. One is simply the reason the pendulum swings. We all know it, right? Is that the winners celebrate? And and the losers tend to get more energy just as we saw the GOP come out and react to the Obama wins with massive midterm gains. And so right now, the energy is on the left. There's no question about that. But there's also. Oh question in my humble opinion. There is going to be overreach on the left. I think they're already has been and I'll be talking to governor elect police about that along with Chris at six oh five. So and the other thing is I think that in part in an listen, I don't like the horseface stuff from the president either. But I think he's accomplished some historically great things policy wise that you may disagree with Nick, I I don't know your politics. But I think that some of the reaction on the left is to really good things the president is doing and so at that point at that point, you know, the burden is on the base everybody who agrees with that. The president is doing to get out there and support he and Cory Gardner and everybody else who's helping the president in every way possible for shut up. Yeah. Geoff Hunt from the centennial institute made this point you know, that I reported in my article. It's incumbent upon Republicans here in the state to take what the whatever good. They see the president doing and translate that for the Colorado voter who by and large does not look like the base of Donald Trump. Right. And and, you know, going back to the original point we have two years until the next election a little less than two years now, and so much can change so much can change. So I think you're absolutely right, Dan, that Republicans need to take some time. They need a chew on this and try to figure out what that looks like. But the thing, you know, I keep going back to which I can't stress enough. Which was I just saw this is you know, what what my reporting has led me to believe that. There was a there was a void of ideas from the Republicans in Colorado, especially at the top of the ticket, and you know, thinking about what Michael fields from Colorado rising action told me Republicans have to calm down. The table..

"Altieri on KOA NewsRadio eight fifty AM and ninety four one FM right now. Twenty nine degrees. Overcast skies to say the least in Denver at six fifty two. It's Colorado's morning news. Our next governor is democrat Jared polis, and he says he will work with a democratic controlled legislature. As the results were coming in last night, our own Jerry bell caught up with lame duck governor John Hickenlooper, Colorado. Voted for Hillary Clinton. Democratic registration is a Republican registration down is becoming blue. Or is it still purple? This might be a blue election. I think ourselves our state is still purple when I'm out in the suburbs, even up and down the front range. There are lots of places where people are pretty conservative. Even look at all the independence. We have. If you were to poll, most of those independence bet the majority a good majority kind of leans to the right? A lot of people in the party tonight are talking about a possible trifecta were. Yeah. The governor's office, and you have both houses of the legislature were that to happen. What do you think are some of the things that we might see go through that? Maybe you got blocked before. I don't know. I think. Assuming the governor the Jared polis becomes governor police, and that they get both houses he might says this his first session he might be a little more cautious. And is as a new governor. I think the general assembly would side with him in terms of saying let's not bite off more than we can chew. Let's take this. Slowly, we've got a couple of years to look at, you know, moving the state in in certain ways like like making sure that we do. Get more coverage for health care more people covered making sure that we do try to get more people making more money expanding the middle class. Is there a little bit of a danger of having both houses of your same party? Well, you had that for a little while we got some stuff done that was, you know, I think important, but it's it's definitely it takes a certain amount of finesse because when you have both houses some of the more ambitious initiatives people want to get them done, really fast. They can't get out ahead of public opinion. Last question. I know you have some interest in national politics these days. What do you think we're seeing around the country in this midterm and are things about the changes is the beginning of some change. But we'll see President Trump has been out. I've never seen a presence. Spend more time make more stops during a midterm, and if all that effort, and he still gets the the house gets swept away that that really is a a a repudiation of his presidency to a certain.

That's going on behalf of all these folks, it looks like the the next governor of Colorado is gonna be Jared polis, I guess democrat. So that is a he's the first openly gay governor. So the the media are going to celebrate that because that's deeply important. That's very. New Jersey when he came remember that governor. Wife next to him. He said on the gay man elected. Selected crew. All of the modifiers all of the caveats every box must be checked. So that everything is storage a story. Yes. It says that the you know, again, it looks like the if you're gonna read trends tonight. What it looks like is that all of the trends in twenty sixteen held in deepen. So among women Republicans failed among among suburban voters Republicans failed long blue collar voters. They did. Well in battleground states, like Florida and Ohio. Maybe michigan. It looks like Republicans continue to do. Well. So this looks more like a realignment than it does like a blip. Yeah. Right. Which was one of the questions was twenty sixteen blip based on Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump's unique candidacy or was this an actual cultural realignment, and it looks a lot more like a cultural realignment with Democrats taking the Kosan Republican except for Florida heroin, also Republican Rick Scott. Yeah. Wow. And it's, you know, we're it looks like crews is starting to pull ahead in Pennsylvania. Maybe the one area that looks like an outlier because Democrats are picking up a bunch of house seats in Pennsylvania's district. Yeah. That's right. But they're, but they're picking up a bunch of house seats. Right there. So, you know, it's it's really it's fascinating fascinating stuff. And it really it really is going to have to really gonna have to rethink Trump. I mean, we're we're really gonna have to look at him as as the forget about who he is man look at him as an expression of people who have been put down insulted of dismissed told that they were obsolete in over yet. And they don't believe. We have to relook at Trump. No. No. This is consistent with my view of Trump. My view of Trump is that he is the end of the right? My what I always object to is the argument that Trump is a tapped into a policy of a new conservatism, a new political philosophy, and that that's the source of his strength that he cracked the code of what people want PO policy wise, I think what he has cracked is. We're tired of Paul Ryan being gentlemen were tired of Mitt Romney being a gentleman. We're tired of John McCain being gentleman. We didn't like being called. We didn't like, but there's no million things. And the two things are relating. We're tired of being called names. And then being gentlemen, in response to understand that that the human mind starts to shape things when it sees events going on.

There had been a race. They'd been getting a lot of attention. Richard cordray had been re leading a lot of police the democrat running for governor on oh, he's actually trailing the Republican Mike dewine right now by about seven points, which is notable since Sherrod Brown won a really easy reelection in the Senate race in a couple of the most prominent governors races. We've been watching in Georgia and Florida still too close to call that is right Florida is basically fifty fifty Republican Ron to Santa's has a fifty to forty nine percent lead over democrat, Andrew gillum and in Georgia. Let me just scroll to that on my screen. I think I would remember if we'd call that race with sixty seven percent reporting Brian Kemp, the Republican is leading Stacey Abrams. The democrat fifty four to forty five percent that would be notable. Because nearly every poll have that race neck and neck. Well, we're going to hear more about Georgia actually in right now. Bill of Georgia public broadcasting is with us, and he can tell us. More about that Bill. I'm Michelle good to talk to you. So how's it looking there? Well, I think you've got to be careful about the margin that you're hearing right now in the Georgia governor's race because the big metro Atlanta counties, which are predominantly, of course, democratic are still those precincts are out in big numbers Capt county, one of the state's biggest and most powerful democratic counties, very few of the votes. Counted their Fulton County Clayton county counties in the immediate metro area. And what what you have to have had seen was kept building up the kind of lead. He's showing right now across rural Georgia to withstand the influx of democratic votes. So I think it's really fair to say that race right now really is way too close to call. And just remind us if you would about why it is that people are so interested in this race. I'm going to take my colleague, Mari license instruction here. And. Not call it a waiver. But you cannot ignore the fact that there's been tremendous excitement about this race from all across the country excitement and anxiety, and actually some anger and tell us why remind us of why I think there are several reasons number one, of course, Stacey Abrams if she wins would become the first African American female governor in the United States. She's also running progressive democrat Democrats run as real Democrats in Georgia. They run to the right and in the last decade. Plus it hasn't gotten them anywhere. Jason Carter tried to do that. When he ran for governor in twenty fourteen Jimmy Carter's grandson, he didn't get very far. So Stacey Abrams is come in and said, no, no, no, I am basically a liberal Democrat. And I'll run as one Brian camp runs as a very conservative Republicans. So you've set up a dynamic here that we have not seen in Georgia for a very very long time. And it has made for. A really exciting, right? I'm sorry. You didn't mention Oprah. Could we mentioned? I just think we should mention Oprah because you should do that every person who came in to what campaign for Stacey Abrams. You know, Oprah told the crowd she did to events in suburban Atlanta, four Stacey Abrams, and she told the crowd that she called Stacey Abrams up out of nowhere one day and said, hi Stacey. This is Oprah. And Oprah said that Stacy said, oh, let me pull the car over. I wanna talk to you. So it was Oprah who actually said she wanted to come in there Abrahams campaign. I hadn't asked her to. And and of course, she made a huge impact here. Now did she turn out voters for Abrams? You know, we have nothing but anecdotal evidence, but she didn't hurt. Well, we do also want to point out that the vice president is campaigning for Brian Campos. Serving a secretary of state tell us if you I mean, I don't wanna make light other that this this is a hard fought race. And it's also had a turn that a lot of people are describing. As as as very nasty. Tell us why. Well, for a couple of reasons number one Brian Kemp has clung to the Trump my mantra of really attacking as ferociously as possible his opponent trying to disqualify her as a legitimate candidate..
Midterm election results begin to pour in
"Were so angry about Merrick garland, President Obama's supreme court nominee who never got a vote in the Senate. He never got a vote because Republicans had control and majority leader Mitch McConnell had the decision of we will hold a vote on him. We won't hold vote on him. He decided not to hold a vote. It didn't happen. So with Republicans maintaining control of the Senate that means McConnell will be able to hold votes on a whole lot of judicial nominees for President Trump. They can continue putting conservative judges on the court. And if the Democrats do take back control of the house and pass a permanent fix for for Dhaka. Recipients are or many of other things that that Democrats want to do that means that the Republican Senate can just not vote on it or vote for something else. And here's one more thing if Democrats want to push impeachment the idea that a Republican controlled Senate would vote to convict a president who's been impeached by the house is somewhere around zero percent. And how close are Democrats to their goal of retaking the house we've been saying Twenty-three seats need needed to take control of the house. How far along are they at this hour of the night about halfway there? They've picked up about a dozen seats at this point in time. And that puts them in pretty good track considering some any of the key races. Democrats thought would be that first wave seats. They pick off are out in California. Where polls haven't closed yet. How are they doing in the governor's races? They're doing pretty well as well. They have picked up gubernatorial seats in Illinois. And I believe Michigan as well. Democrats have picked up seats there. They've also defended seats in Colorado. Jared polis won the open governor seat. There Ohio had been a race. They'd been getting a lot of tension. Richard cordray had been re leading a lot of poll. He's the democrat running for governor on. Hi, oh, he's actually trailing the Republican Mike dewine right now by about seven points, which is notable since Sherrod Brown. One a really easy reelection in the Senate race.

"KOA NewsRadio time to thirty seven. Got a couple of things on the blog. I want to get to one. Bernie Sanders is coming to Colorado. Yes. What he's going to campaign for Jared polis? This is the least surprising news story of the day since Jared police is essentially running on Bernie Sanders platform least surprising. Yeah. Yeah. I have a really interesting or maybe it was on yesterday's blog. Let me scroll down for a second here. There have been over the last couple of weeks. There have been about four or five stories out of San Francisco. They're not written by outsiders. They're written by people in the San Francisco Chronicle or the other one I read was from some magazine in San Francisco, and so they're written by people who live there. Right. And the people that have voted for continuing hardcore progressives to lead the city Gavin Newsom led the city for seven years, and now he's poised to become the next governor of California. And all these stories are talking about how San Francisco has just become a third world country. And I'm not exaggerating the one that I lead to today. Is how drug dealers have taken over the tenderloin district. Now, the tenderloin district is sort of ground zero for the gay rights movement. It is it is historically significant for the gay rights movement. It's very very historically significant. But now, according to business owners and people who live there, the drug dealing is so rampant and so open that charities that have long been a part of the help the homeless community in San Francisco are now saying, hey, look, we set up our tent, but the drug dealers came sat under their ten and just took it over there, openly dealing heroin. They're opening openly dealing meth. There are people at all times of the day pass out on the streets from taking drugs. The human waste is piled up everywhere. The smell of urine and human excrement is so strong that people say, oh when you walk through the tenderloin, just hold your breath. And all I could think of was wasn't Denver considering a safe injection site system that San Francisco was supposed to be the leader on do, you know, that was even too liberal for San Francisco. And the only reason I bring this up is what if you want San Francisco in Colorado vote for Jared police, it's that simple. It's not crazy. He advocates for all of the same things that they're doing open borders unfettered illegal immigration free stuff for everyone tax, the rich until they leave like they're doing in California. I mean, it's very very predictable. By the way, has anybody else watched the debates I should have asked this on Monday. And I forgot did you watch. The gubernatorial debate on Friday night. I was so proud of myself. I turned it on. I was gonna sit there and watch it and sit for about ten minutes. Now, they just kept beyond on each other back and forth. I couldn't turn it off was over. Well, Friday night. They have the debate. They had another debate in Pueblo on Saturday, and the thing that is coming through the clearest for me is by the way, the yelling, very nice thing to note there Instagram because there was a lot of yelling, and the fact that Jared police has yet to answer one question seriously about how he's gonna pay for all of these pie in the sky programs. I also have a video on today's blog Fritz Prager you've video, but they're out in the streets of Hollywood asking these young butter cups, if the rich pay their fair share, right? This is like the big question. Let me let me play for you. Gordon? Give me my computer there, drew l let me just play this for you. This is just a very simple video. It's just a couple of minutes long. What's up guys? This is will wear with Prager you today. We're back on Hollywood Boulevard, and we're going to be asking people do the rich really pay their fair share. Do you think that the rich pay.

He's, been in congress for nearly a decade is running for governor this is a project which, would be transformative to western Colorado she refuses to take a position on this project it's pretty easy to say or you for it or against it and it's bipartisan by the way Senator Bennett I has been. A supporter of this project governor Hickenlooper, supports this project Senator gardener myself county commissioners from both parties in western. Colorado and Jared polish it sat on the sidelines Sided out either because he doesn't want to upset he's environmentalist friends or. Because he's not interested in. Being a champion for economic development western Colorado I don't, really know what the reason is but I some point he's going to have to explain what, the reason is when you talk about all the things he's promised than during the democrat nominating campaign it was hard to keep track of which of. The candidates for outbidding wh which of the other candidates to. Offer the most goodies but this is a problem. That fiscally conservative Republicans like you often face when they run for, office are you obliged to outbid, Jared polis.
