So we'll break that down tomorrow. On the Charlie Brennan show as well. The debate, of course, between attorney general Josh Holly and incumbent United States Senator Claire mccaskill one hundred million dollar Senate race taking place right here in the state of Missouri. The most expensive political campaign in Missouri history today, and that's what we're all living through right now. And the ads are nonstop. And they're quite brutal out there on both sides, a big left of center initiative that will be on the ballot is called Queen Missouri. John, and it deals with a bunch of issues a whole host of issues and just to name a couple of them one is to deal with Qatar rolling lobbyists gifts in Jefferson City to some campaign finance reform issues on the third is related to redistricting in the way that we do the redistricting here in the state of Missouri. John. And I right now are broadcasting from a house state rep district. It's almost nearly ninety percent democratic performing meaning that ninety percent of the votes cast, go towards the democrat. There's not a Republican district in the state of Missouri that goes anywhere near that Democrats know that Republicans like the Pakistan into the city to dilute our representation in Jefferson City, and this is one of the things, and this particular issue will allow us to draw more competitive districts that are far more reflective of what this state looks like when it comes to the statewide population. So right now, the redistricting process in Missouri is one of the fairest in the country. The two political parties submitted list of names to the governor. So the governor's not picking, you know, not real Democrats. It's the Democratic Party submits the names of Republican party submits the names governor picks five from each list and a ten member commission, then is formed in their job is to go draw legislative district state Senate seats in state house seats, you then need seven of those ten members to agree to the map before the map is approved. So it will take a super majority of those commissioners to adopt the map and if they fail to do. So if they can't do so then a three judge panel of circuit, a circuit court judges in the state are selected in those three judges then draw the final map that is an eminently fair process. What clean Missouri would do is. It takes redistricting out of the hands of this bipartisan commission in places in wait for this. The state auditors office why? Well, the state auditors the only democratic elected officials statewide. So they're putting the redistricting in the state auditors office. She then gets to pick the state demographer, whatever that means and the state demographer is charged with drawing quote competitive districts. Well, here's what happens. Here's the the plane reality of it. You're gonna have districts that are going to potentially lose their communities of interest right now. Michael, correct? There are that are ninety percent democratic because there are places that are ninety percent democratic what the Democrats want to do. And the reason lacy clay is opposing this. That's right lacy clay is opposing this is because there is a belief, and I think an accurate believes that this will diminish the representation of African Americans in the legislature how because instead of having districts have a majority minority population, which we have several now they're gonna take those densely democratic areas and diffuse them into several different districts, thereby creating fewer majority minority districts. But more districts that are democratic is opposed to Republican. How do you do that long thin districts from the city of Saint from the river running after Saint Charles county? That's how you do that. There's no interest in that community community interest there. It's bad. It's just not true. It's not going to dilute her back. It may expand minority has been well Ververs Jones's for it. And he's falsely accused me of being against it. But you know, but there's lots of fake news that comes out of him. But I mean. Lots of African Americans support this now, I think it's interesting that every ten years you Republicans act like you care about the minority population. We do because it serves your own interest. Yeah. And you want to help pack them into districts that are ninety percent democratic performing. I get that. We can agree to disagree. I think we both believe that this initiatives gonna pass. Is that correct? Yeah. I mean there is there is an opposition to it. I think Senator Jim talents kind kinda heading that up. I haven't seen any advertising yet.
