"Is going that seemed like a logical continuation relation of the conversation we had last night I wonder if it feels to you as it does to several of our colleagues here at the time that your statement and the statement of these six others in a very big difference and may have actually broken down. I think it wasn't important statement. I think our party needed to lay out the case and I think to have that case. Come from a group of people that have a history of service to the country that don't have a history of being partisan. I do think that that was a powerful statement. You've heard from people in your district including Republicans but obviously it's far too early to understand how your voters will. We'll come down on this. I wonder does that matter to you. Are you comfortable with the idea that this decision could theoretically cost you your seat in Congress. It matters to me in the sense that I have a vision for the future of this country that I think is important Horton and that I think will help not just new Jerseyans but all Americans so I think it would be a shame if after or twenty twenty we still had president trump in office because I don't think he's been good for this country in that sense. No I'm not totally comfortable with the possibility ability that this will cost me because to me that means. I haven't made the case well enough that I haven't done what I think I am. I think you know other freshmen members that I've Britain op Ed with what the you know the case I think Guilt Cisneros and Jason Crowe and Christie Houlihan and Elaine luria Melissa Slackening Abigail Span Burger and I can make to the American people people about what the president has done and if we don't do that well enough and we lose our seats yeah. I'm not really comfortable with that because I think we have a better vision for the future then then the president does and yet. It's a risk that I think we all felt. We had to take to defend our national security congressman in your letter. You said that if the allegations are true and you emphasized if this is an impeachable offense the way you're talking now. It seems like you're pretty clear that this is an impeachable offense. Do I have that right. Am I missing something I think we have we have a group of of people that have signed onto this op-ed and this is where the group is. I think I am pretty confident that these are impeachable offenses. Now whether that's the decision that we as a caucus Akkas will make that's a different thing and I think there's many things that that will go into that decision for the caucus but I certainly think these actions do represent an impeachable offense.

"Thank you. Colorado's newest members of congress Representative Jason Crowe is coming off his first speech in the house. And he highlight the impact the shutdown is having on veterans and he joins us now and good morning. Congressman do you think your speech made progress towards changing minds on Capitol Hill. I think it did. I mean, there's a lot of new veterans as part of this this congress, you know, this is one of the the largest new classes that include bats that. We've had in decades, certainly, my fellow veterans in congress supported the speech, and you know, both Republicans and Democrats alike, I think resonated with. So what is the solution a full reopening of the government? Or would you be satisfied with a Bill focused on these snap benefits or other veteran needs, but we have to reopen the government I think we have to send a very clear message that it's never appropriate the whole people's lives hostage because of policy differences. You know, we have eight hundred thousand people who aren't getting paid one hundred and fifty thousand veterans there there, you know, I talked to them all the time. They're afraid they're not gonna be able to pay their rent. They're not gonna be able to support their families. You know, this is never okay to say because of. A policy or political difference. We're gonna hold people's lives hostage. We have to send a set a very clear message that we're not gonna tolerate this. And then, you know, once we reopen the government that we can have that very serious discussion that we need to have about border security, congressman, I'm assuming Evert from some of your constituents. I wonder do they share with you that they the sentiments that you share our there's that they want the government open. But are they also may be saying, but we need a wall as well. But what people really want is strong border security first off. It is. I am hearing a very loud message that we need to open the government. I the people are with us on that. But we have to have the discussion about border security people want secure borders. I want secure borders, but we need to have a reasonable rational discussion based on the facts about what that looks like, you know, my background is we've talked about before protecting the Afghan Pakistan border during my combat deployments to Afghanistan. I know about the technology that we can leverage the boots on the ground the infrastructure. We can put in place at the ports of entry that actually will make. Difference. So we can put into place much faster than you could do a wall. Those are the types of really smart policy decisions, but I support and we're willing to fund those types of border security measures thirty congressional Democrats have sent a letter to house speaker Nancy Pelosi wanting her to bring a vote forward on border wall funding, if the president reopens the government, your colleague congressman, Ed Pearl mutter signed, it, did you think it's really important that we open the government first. And then we have the longer term discussion about border security. What's the difference? The difference between what the difference for any opening the government. I or having the border wall discussion. I this goes back to my original point. We have to make it very clear it never appropriate to hold people's lives hostage. Particularly our veterans to to advance a policy discussion. We just can't do that. Congressman Jason Crowe. Thank you for your time. We appreciate it. Thank you. All right..

"Is five seven seven three lots three nine. It's it's no surprise that. Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi is now speaker of the house it what's a little bit surprising is that there were some folks that voted against her.

"Jason Crowe will join them he defeated Republican Mike Kaufman for the win in the midterms. Let's get into it. All with congressman crow now. Good morning. Good morning, April. Thanks for having me. How are you feeling going into this congress? Yes. Democrats are gonna have power, but you're already dealing with. This major massive issue a twelve day partial government shutdown. Well, I'm excited about this class. I mean, this is the largest congressional class. We've seen since nineteen seventy four we have the ability to be transformational and really bring that that new generation of leadership that we need in this country. You know, there's a lot of work to do, and this shutdown is a great example of it. And it just underscores for me, everything that's wrong with DC and why we need new leadership actually get things done. Speaking of leadership. Congressman last time we had you on you were bit lukewarm or not very supportive of Nancy Pelosi. Have you changed your tune a bit since then? Now, I haven't changed my two, and I won't be supporting anti Pelosi and her her speaker bid, and and you know, like, I sit along the campaign trail, we really need a new generation of leadership to change the culture of DC in this country. And I I firmly believe in that I think we need to push hard for that new leadership to really get the change that we need are the president's demands for a border wall a non starter for you. They are you know, I just I'm not in the business suspending billions of dollars of hard earned taxpayer money on a board. That's gonna border wall. It's going to be ineffective and immoral. You know, most people have told me that there's no reason for this wall that it's going to be ineffective, and I don't want to spend billions of dollars of your money of our money to help the president look strong. That's just not what I was sent to Washington to do. I know some people are excited about the change in Washington taking place, but Democrats taking over the house. But are you concerned at all that there may be more impetus to investigate the president then to legislate and work with them at all. Well, this is really about accountability. Know people of this country has said that they want to hold this president and his administration accountable. You know, I'm more than happy to work with this administration. When there are things that will make people's lives better. They will move this country forward, and and and make our country better. But I'm also not gonna sit around and let us president spend billions of dollars of taxpayer money and waste that money or do other things that are immoral like a child separation policies, for example. I'm just not gonna do it. And we will hold this administration accountable when it's necessary to do that where is the common ground between the two parties right now. You know, there's there are potential for common ground. I'm really excited about the opportunity for transportation infrastructure Bill. We need to rebuild this country. Mean we have roads and bridges crumbling. We need to rebuild water infrastructure energy. Transmission infrastructure, you know, put people to work. These are strong middle class jobs. These jobs that will have people in hard, hats rebuilding this country that we haven't seen done in Beck age. And I think there is a there is the ability to build some consensus around getting its congressman Jason Crowe. Thank you so much and good luck. When you take over in the new session. All right. Thank you very much. Let's continue our Colorado delegation conversation in Washington now on the GOP side of the aisle. It's congressman Ken buck who joins us now. Good morning. Good morning. Hope you had a nice holiday and a happy new year to you. I did. Thank you very much. I hope the same for you and your listeners. Thank you. So we're getting right back into a day twelve of the government shutdown. Do you see an end in sight? And what is the endgame here? Well, I think there has to be a compromise. The the president is demanding border security. I think most Republicans are with them on that issue. I certainly am. And and I believe the Democrats have to recognize that we need to fund a barrier and other parts of the border security package. It's not just about immigration. Although a large part of it is about immigration. It's also about the heroine epidemic. We have in this country and other needs that we have just a cure our border congressman, I think two things can be true. I think most people would agree with you that the immigration issues, we have a huge and there needs to be done. But it's been shown that the wall is not the best solution. It's only just something else to kind of throw into the mix. What do you say to that? Oh, I think I think that's the wall is not the only part of the solution. And we don't need a wall that goes from long entire border, but the border patrol agents that I've talked to in in the supervisors at homeland security. Hey, a barrier is absolutely an unnecessary part of border security for certain areas. We don't have a Bill remember ever since nineteen eighty six when we when when congress entered into agreement was President Reagan amnesty for border security. The wall was authorized but never funded since nineteen Eighty-six President Trump is just saying we're which time that we found the wall. And and whether we get part of it built the part that the border patrol says is necessary or whether we build an entire wall. We need to start building that barrier, and we need to put more resources on the border to make sure that we stop the flow of legal immigrants and drugs is the amount of money. Something Republicans will compromise on because Democrats say five billion is an absolute no go. Yeah. And you know, the the reality is it's going to cost about twenty five billion to build the wall of from one side all the way to the other. So five billion is just a down payment. I have not heard from the Democrats. How I heard that they care about border security. I have not heard what they would do about it. Whether they would increase personnel. Whether they would, you know, use more, satellite technology, all those things cost money also. So when when the Democrats come to the table and are serious about we're going to fix the problem. And this is how we would fix it. I think it's worth people listening to. But right now, it's clear that we need at least five billion dollars of border wall were border fencing or something congressman thanks for the time. Thank you very much. Congressman Ken buck.

A little later on today in hopes of hammering out a deal to end the twelve day partial government, shutdown ABC's, Tara Palmeri says there may be a compromise in the works. So my sources say that the president may be open to the idea of doing a bigger deal. That includes some sort of resolution for dreamers and people who are with temporary permits who are. Working in this country. But it's still unclear as we know that the president likes to go with his and sort of play these games on the fly. Two sides have been at odds over funding for President Trump's long promised border wall. Colorado Republican congressman Ken buck says the wall has been approved for some time and is necessary for border control. The wall was authorized but never funded since nineteen eighty six President Trump is just saying we're which time that we fund the wall on the flipside incoming democrat. Congressman Jason Crowe says there is no chance he'll vote to approve that funding to businesses spending billions of dollars of hard earned taxpayer money on a board. That's gonna border wall.

But I wanna look at places like Montana where we were able to be successful. And then compare and contrast to see what we need to do. But what I what I know we have to do. And now, we we moved to the twenty twenty Senate cycle, and we've got places like Colorado where you have a Senate seat in place, and and we continue to build and strengthen the Democratic Party there. You saw the sixth congressional district of Colorado, which was a target for a number of years. And again, this is about persistence, we tried we tried we tried. We've we didn't succeed we didn't succeed. And then we not only succeeded with Jason Crowe, we succeeded in a very solid manner with Jason Crowe. And so that that's a Senate seat. That's in play. Now, a Cory Gardner in Maine. We invested heavily in the election of Janet Mills. And it was with an eye toward helping Jan. Nails, and it was an eye toward helping the second congressional district of Maine. But it's also with an eye toward electing a democrat to the US Senate in twenty twenty. And so that's what a fifty state strategy is about I think the most important one of the most important reasons to have a fifty state strategy is the United States Senate, if you see twenty twenty-five states day one to the other side, it's very hard to sustain a democratic majority in the US Senate, and that's why I'm hardened and we showed that we can win in Kansas. You look at some of these house seats that were won in other states. We showed that we can again compete there. We didn't make it to the top in Iowa at the governor's level. But we did win two seats. And we gave Steve king a run for his money. And there's a Senate seat coming up in Iowa in two thousand twenty. And so that's the foundation that we've been able to lay to compete everywhere.

People were ready for a new generation of leadership that would put the interest of working class families in the district ahead of special interests and lobbyists in Washington.

And they wanted people that have experienced building businesses raising families and soon serving this country outside of politics to get the job. Done.

It's about making sure that working families get a fair, shake, you know, that we're building an economy that works for everybody. And we're promoting our values and what we're gonna do. That's what we've been doing on the campaign trail. And that's certainly what I'm gonna bring to Washington. Yeah. What are your top three priorities would say? Well, the first thing we have to do is restore trust between congress and the American people, you know, trust is at an all time low of congress, and there's a lot of very good reasons for that.

"Are five days. Now from the big election day, we continue to watch the closest races in Colorado and one that's getting a lot of national attention is for six congressional district seat. Republican congressman Mike Kaufman being challenged by democrat Jason Crowe chatted with democrat the democrat yesterday today. It's congressman coffman's turn. Good morning. Congressman. Good morning. How is the push going with the five days left before the vote? It's going great. Just a fantastic ground game. A great turnout by Republicans, and it obviously it's gonna take a crossover votes in this district to win the unaffiliated just so crucial. So some polls earlier this fall had Jason Crowe as much as I think ten or eleven points ahead in this race. Dee put any stock in those polls. No, not really that was by the New York Times. And I think they put their someone the scale, and the fact is a polling in my previous races of all. I think in two thousand fourteen I was two points up by nine points and twenty sixteen one point up in the polls in in one by eight point. So no, I don't put a lot of stock in the polls is the climate different this time versus the last time that you were up for election. Are are you getting a different vibe from from your electric telling you things that they want to see changed? Oh, I think every election is different. There's no question. Obviously, immigrations a big issue in this election as healthcare the president. I know I think has eleven more cities on his his campaign blitz in the next five days is Colorado going to be one of the states that he visits. And would you like him to come here for you? Well, all the states, he's visiting our our our states that he did well in in two thousand sixteen where there's a Senate or gubernatorial race, and certainly that's not the case in Colorado. Congressman the Republican apparatus they withdrew money from your campaign when it came to supporting you did that bother you was it money that they felt they could spend in other resources where they confident in your in your campaign. Well, I think the big problem is the Republicans and have a raised the money that they had hoped it would raise national. And so there's a they're shorter resources number one. Yeah. People like Bloomberg inspire billionaires on the left to who heavily come in. In addition to what the Democrats have been able to raise give your pitch. We certainly let Jason Crowe do that yesterday. How do you differentiate yourself from your challenger? Well, I'm an independent voice for this record of bipartisanship and Luger institute has raped me as the twelfth most bipartisan member of congress out of four hundred thirty five the ability to reach across the aisle to bridge. The partisan divide in Washington DC are both of us have military backgrounds. I think that's that's very important. He served in the Wisconsin army national guard and the army I served in the army, the Marine Corps. We're both combat veterans. So I think that they're both respect each other as a service military record. I think the difference is he has no record of standing up to those of his own party where where? Whereas I do I I think two quick examples of that. He was asked by the democrat political establishment in Washington DC to give a speech at the democratic national convention in two thousand twelve how great the VA was doing under the under President Obama in terms of taking care of our veterans. And yet you knew that wasn't true. And I think Secondly, he voluntarily lobbied on behalf of the Obama administration for the Iran nuclear deal. Even though he knew there there was no prohibition on on the development of ballistic missile technology. Even know he knew that would give the Iranian regime over one hundred billion dollars that they can use in their state sponsored terrorism. And that the agreement would is only good for ten years. And so I think I will continue to stand up to my party when I know that they're wrong. And I don't see where he's he has no track record in doing that congress. And thank you for your time. Thank you, nearly a million votes have already been returned in Colorado. The numbers show votes from registered, Democrats and Republicans are very. Close separated by just four hundred forty three ballots right now. So what does this mean for election day? We're checking in with GOP strategist, dick Waddams. Good morning, dick, good morning. Marty of those ballots for turn by registered voters. They're neck and neck is that typical. Or is this a trend in engagement that's moving upward. Well, you have to compare it to previous midterm elections in two thousand fourteen and two thousand ten and those working years Republicans had a one hundred thousand voter advantage over Democrats election, and it's clear that this this election Republicans are not going to have that they're going to be probably neck and neck with Democrats as you point out, and that is a much different environment for Republicans be running in the previous two midterm election. And it makes those unaffiliated voters that much more crucial in this election, doesn't it where do you see those folks leaning, no doubt April. Unaffiliated voters have always determine the outcomes of action from Colorado state wide. But in this election Republicans are going there have a chance in statewide races. They've got to get support from unaffiliated voters since we don't have the advantage repaired in previous election. It looks like to that the engagement by female voters seems to be up as well is that something used to seeing in a mid term. There clearly is more intensity more enthusiasm. Burgum democratic women have not. Donald trump. They're very motivated to vote probably more. So in this midterm election than in previous election. So we'll just have to see if that can be offset by Republicans are getting their vote out between now and Tuesday and unaffiliated voters swinging Republican GOP strategies, dick Wadham, thank you for your time.

"KOA NewsRadio Colorado's election station. Congressman Mike Kaufman is battling challenger Jason Crowe in this November's midterms and the national Republican congressional committee has pulled a million dollars from that race. Why let's get into what that might mean. With GOP strategist, dick Waddams. Good morning. Good morning, April. Why would the pull money from that race this close to election day? Are they confident that might coffins gonna win or do they feel like that money would be spent elsewhere or maybe both? You know, the RC's under tremendous pressure across the country. It's an a very defensive position with a lot of vulnerable incumbents across the country. Democrats only twenty three seats to win the US house. And I think what went into their decision to move money from Colorado to Ford Ed appears to another is that Mike Kaufman has already had millions of dollars spent on his behalf. Mike has his money that he's raised. This is a race where both candidates are terribly. Well known and Mike Kaufman has a long history of overperforming from the poll. He was supposed to be Morgan caraway very strong democratic candidate candidate two years ago by two or three points, and he beat her by nine. So polls think pose accurately reflect how strong Mike is in any given election. So I think he's still very much alive in this race. Do you view it the same way? Dick, do you think Kaufman? Do you think regardless of what the polls are showing that he's going to come out on top in that race with Jason Crowe? You know, I've heard my democratic democratic friends do not ever count out, my constant, and I agree with that might has deep roots in the in the district having grown up there. He has invented himself in the various diapers communities such district. And I really think that those voters are going to stay with him. And the polls might not pick up that deep support. They didn't two years ago. They didn't four years ago. Miami's still on my Kaufman. The president's approval ratings up in the latest poll out today, but does the president help or hurt? Kaufman. Do you think in Colorado? Well, clearly, President Trump is upside down in Colorado, and he's not a huge asset. That's for sure. For Republican candidates. I think Mike has done a really good job in separating himself from the administration and becoming his own man. And that district. I I think that the Democrats and and his opponents have tried to make him into a Trump clone. I don't think it's gonna work. It's GOP strategist dick Waddams, dick. Thank you as always for your time. Thank you. Nice to talk you at six forty five on Colorado's morning news. We'll talk.
