Talking about your talk about money and what they're doing with all that. I know from the board and there was another girl. Can you pick up the phone a little bit? We can't understand what you're saying. There. You kind of talking into your cheek there. Alright. I'm talking about Munich golf course. Yes, sir. What's on your mind? Over what I'm getting at what I haven't heard and what I think may be a viable option. Or they could negotiate is the city of Boston. I don't Hancock Park. Yeah, there's been a lot of talk about hand got part for Louise Arbour, Munich. For loading. Excuse me. Yeah, Yeah, yeah, a lot. There's been talk about that for years as doing some kind of a trade. Because Hancock doesn't get nearly the rounds. Immunity does. It's a beautiful piece of land. Not as big. Maybe it's not not as big and not an equal and value. That's the reason why there Yes, there's no tray it be an expensive piece of dirt. I don't know how they compare, but it's not as big of a track is that's what I mean. It's not as big so it's it's probably not worth as much and not a fair trade. Maybe not. Maybe not. Well. Beauteous has a huge impact on Austin that, according to Jennifer Verdens Social Media Post, she says, Save media is a top priority for me As mayor of Austin beginning in 2022, she Wants to be your mayor of Austin, Texas, and she says, I'm going to lead and keep council focused on what we're charged to do. Competent, completely Managing the core fund of municipal services like a p D, a F D E m s water, electricity, roads and parks. Let's maximize our attention, she says on Facebook to those things. And minimize the virtue, signaling resolutions and overwhelming the city manager. She's right about that, too. Now regarding uni in our parks and nature preserves, there's a new bona fide parks Lady in town. Me talking about Jennifer Verdant grew up in Austin truly understand how our iconic parks and precious green spaces are part of our DNA as Austinites. And I'm not just referring to neighborhood pocket parks. Let's do this in 2022. She's a real rights on her Facebook page. Like my campaign's Facebook page, Jennifer Bearden for Mayor 2022. Austin has subscribed to the campaign trail emails she says she saw she is leading an effort to save money. Jennifer for Austin dot com. Is our website. Well, I'll give you that sure, And what she said, is so true that that's what I'm talking about, not everything that's important to a city. Is going to be something that you know is going to generate a ton of revenue. The DNA aspect. I mean, if we didn't have things like Munich, we didn't have things like Zilker Park and you name a million other things. We would have a solar city. We would have a bunch of buildings and you know, the soul of the city is for rent. We've been renting the lines, Municipal golf course It's we're renting it. You know what? And if it was that important, Jennifer Don save money, then, Uh then, then they start raising some money to buy it. Well, is it for sale? Would they be willing to buy it? That's how they for sale they're talking about developing. Of course, it's herself. But listen, if you ask me, I think they should give it. Of course, everybody would would think that'd be good. I think they should give it to Austin. I think they should gifted to Austin is, uh uh, you know, uh, a measure of goodwill here. You know, Austin, it's their city to you, chief it there in the city of Boston. And, uh, you know, I'm saying that because again if If this doesn't happen in Munich just continues to operate as it is, and we rent it from them. They're going to be just fine. And they look at some other land at developing whatever you want to do here. I don't understand why they cannot move on from this. Clearly. Clearly, UT has to see that this is a would be a Bad thing for Austin. If beauty was to go away would be a bad thing for Austin. It would be a major piece of our history that boom just hit the delete button. It's gone now, and you're going to have a new development, which ultimately will will be nothing. As far as the DNA in Boston. There's a lot of efforts all across this country to delete history. Oh, yeah, there's There's been a lot of that lately. Yes, there. It's very popular. Move. Yeah, it is very popular. Very easy thing to do just to hit a button. All right, So you're you're supporting some kind of fundraising effort to buy it from U. T. I wish that it would take probably $500 million and I don't know how much 141 acres prime real estate downtown. It's going to be going up every single day is everything is here in Austin. I'm sure it's just an unbelievable number right now. But or how about you know what you to just forget it and just move on. How about that? And just leave Good enough alone. Good enough alone. Just mind your own business. Mind your own business. That isn't it is it is the business. Actually, isn't they are there. Of course it is. Of course, it is their business. But It's almost like they're kind of a bullying in this case, and I don't know. What do you mean bullying? What I said. I think the University of Texas has been incredibly generous. Over the years. They've been generous. You're not setting a very good stage for negotiations by calling them bullies. They have been very generous over the years, they could have pushed you Austin out of Munich. Decades ago. Sure, they sold it to some hotel years and years ago. I think they've been very considerate of Austin. Actually, this process Listen, you T is somebody's You know, if anybody understands tradition, it's UT How many things on the U T campus alone? Uh or there and just means something as far as the overall again to use that term DNA for for U T that are just that might not generate income necessarily better important to the Just the fabric in the field and in the history and everything. It's an important thing. And, uh, you know, it feels like this argument is going to go on forever and ever and ever, and I. I wish just some decision would be made 11 way or another. No. I think you want this to continue. It should continue. Its because of the decision is made. It may not be a golf course. Right, right. So maybe maybe maybe lines Municipal doesn't want this can continue on and on and on and on for years. This don't worry about what to do with the property, because if this if this disagreement.

"Listening to the best of Todd and don On news, radio, K O B. J Welcome to the Todd and done show. We're live and we want you to join us at 51283605 90. Now here are Todd and done Well. It appears that homelessness the de funding of police, the two major issues that have helped usher in some new blood it. Austin City Hall. Mackenzie Kelly is defeated incumbent Jimmy Flanagan in District six after running a campaign focused largely on public safety. District 10, the incumbent, Alison Alter has won a second term following a very tight runoff race with challenger Jennifer Verdict. Yeah, I don't think we're going to hear. I mean, I don't think that's the last we'll hear from her. I feel like she may be back. Joining us on the side of news line. Matt Mackowiak from the Travis County Republican Party Mad Good morning to you. Give us your rob. Morning after assessment of these two races. Hey, Good morning, guys. It's great to be on again. Yeah. Look, this was a resounding victory. Uh, tonight last night for people that are just satisfied with the direction of the city of Boston. You know, in both cases you had, um, you know, candidates running That were fairly new to politics. I guess Mackenzie had run once before she was really knew back then Jennifer verden never run before. In both these cases. They were the challengers. They were the You know they had the uphill battle, but they had the issues on the side. Because it's pretty clear now Majority of this city does not want to continue with this homeless camping disaster, and they don't want to see the police budget cut by up to one third $150 million. Mackenzie's victory was pretty was really pretty decisive was ended up being around 54 46. Alison Alter barely survived 51 49 shit. All the advantages images of incumbency. She got a lot of help. She apparently one of very large number of mail ballot votes. She won more Alison Altar and in district 10 1 more male Bella votes than the other three candidates. One combined something we need to look into to make sure there's that was entirely entirely, you know, Uh, you know, above board that seems like this was a big window winning Mackenzie Kelly getting a reasonable pro taxpayer. Public safety advocate on the City Council was a big win, and I would assume that those are some of the first issue she wants to address, and I just wonder what kind of support she's going to get with the rest of the City Council because we've kind of heard of fruit grumblings that there are a couple of City Council members that do want to work with her. Yeah, I think that's right. And look, you know if you don't have one reasonable person on the council that will listen. That cares about public safety to cares about taxpayers. Um All you're gonna do is you're going to see the council move in the other direction. So now we have someone who can provide transparency, Someone who can build coalitions, someone who can force votes on important issues. Someone that you know, advocates can can go can go meet with and talk to and know that she'll listen. I know that she wants to be part of the solution. Looking the council if you can put three or four votes together, um, you can you can have an effect, and if you could put six votes together, you can win. So we know that this doesn't I don't want to overstate it. But this this is not mean that Austin is going to change starting, you know, January 1st, but we're gonna have one vote out of out of 11 on the council. But if we're ever going to get to a place where we have a majority on the council where people are pro public safety info, taxpayer, you have to start somewhere on. This is a great place to start. Mackenzie's energetic She's She's a working mom. She understands the community. She understands these issues She understands a district she represents, and she built an incredible campaign with volunteers and enthusiasm. They knocked on thousands and thousands and thousands of doors his past six or nine months. She deserved this win. On its have 2.1 last thing out. Jimmy Flanagan has been chair of the Public Safety Committee, a city council. He has been basically the ringleader behind this defund. The police re imagine the police effort. This was a resounding defeat for that movement last night, absolutely resounding defeat, and every single person on the council needs to reassess what they've done for the last two years, and what the City council run offs should tell them about the direction that voters want the city to go. You think that's why the City Council is kind of leaning back towards maybe having AH, April cadet class? I do. I think it's a recognition that they made a tremendous mistake. You know that that in some ways is the single most indefensible decision that they've made, which is really saying something that class that was, I think that significant minority members. They've gone to the entire training process. And they decided at the last minute when they've gone through training when they're ready to become a full police officers to basically, you know, suspend their graduation for no reason at all. No explanation. Absolutely outrageous talking about intercourse. I'm sorry. Go ahead. You're talking with Matt Mackowiak, Travis County Republican Party. Martin. We are up against the clock, man. I just want to squeeze in a couple of other things. Mitch McConnell yesterday says this election is over. It's time to move on. And the GOP needs to start focusing on new things. Your thoughts on on that. Yeah, I've kind of two thoughts about it one. You know, it is now. Absolutely. Joe Biden is gonna get sworn in on January. 20th. You know, I wish that were the case is supported the president for reelection. I thought his first term had a tremendous number of important achievements. But now there really is no pathway left. Um And you know, people are gonna start to accept that over time Now. Secondly, though, I do believe, um you know legitimate legal challenges should be pursued. I don't believe this election head zero voter fraud. Anyone that believes that is really not being serious. We need to understand better how these mail ballots went out. You know, Pennsylvania four years ago, the 200,000 mail ballots this time we have 2.5 million. You know, we have to know. We have to understand whether those were illegally cast ballots. Not be important to understand that so I support you. No reasonable. Legal efforts to present evidence and make these make the case and I hope Republicans do that going forward should President Trump stop raising money in the state of Georgia? I believe so because the way that set up is he's taking a pretty big percentage of it. We got three weeks to save the country. If the Democrats won the two seats in Georgia on January 5th..

McKinsey Kelly won over Jimmy Flanagan. He chaired the Public Safety Committee. That's a big deal because you know, he's one of the big pushers. But you know for de funding police canceling some police cadet classes, things like that. And I think the community said, You know what? Jimmy, You went too far. You've gone too far left Jimmy. And they want to give McKinsey Kelly a real shot Now Alison Altar, she won reelection against Jennifer Virgin. But it was a tight one. Even if she didn't She didn't win, you know, handedly. The way that Mackenzie Kelly, did We get a full report here from CBS Austin reporter mentally barged in here it is Jimmy planing and only got 48% of the vote. Mackenzie Kelly came out on top with 52%. It's your tin Alison Altar was seeing convent. She secured her seat yet again with 51% of the vote. Her opponent, Jennifer Verden, got 49%. So both of these very close races, But the major takeaway tonight is that Jimmy plan again will no longer be on City Council. He had a very contentious race with McKinsey, Kelly. He represented that seat since 2016. And tonight, Flanagan hosted a watch party and just a few minutes ago, he did concede to the race. Here's what he had to say. But it doesn't mean that any of this work ends and I am excited for the rest of my colleagues who I know. We'll continue this work and the future Council member who I, I hope Does her best.

She's been the incumbent. She's already served. One term on City Council shall go on to serve. Another one. But this was a close race.

Has spoken. So today, I want to congratulate President elect Joe Biden. The president elect is no stranger to the Senate.

It kind of feels like the GOP is already turned its back on Donald Trump. Yeah, does already feels like they have. Yeah, and just a handful of that has been speaking out, so you know, but but, yeah, it feels like the GOP has already moved on. I mean, you know, we talked about a lot yesterday.

Yeah, no, not probably not a great promotional tool one dishing it over now that more people are online education, working from home those kind of classes, you know, I mean, there's a possibility of this. I know, but the thing about that is now if you do pull a move like that, unfortunately, because of where we are digitally, that's always going to be out there. It's gonna be after you.

Here's another example of that There's rampant cheating going on. Well, there could be.

It'll take virtual courses and test remotely, you know, with less supervision. Yeah, already on unusual fall semester, wrapping up the Texas A and M University officials sent out an email in early December just a few days ago to hundreds of students in an online finance class that set off a panic factory reported concerns of cheating on a very large scale to the Aggie Honor System office and after they noticed some students in the class answered online test too quickly. Later, faculty discovered the entire exams posted on a homework help website that has become synonymous with cheaters. Well, maybe this is ah, good thing for the future.

We're here till 10 and you could call you could text and you use the same number 51283605 90 so many things to get to this morning and Governor Greg Abbott. He's again floated the Idea of having the state assume control of policing in certain parts of Austin. Yeah, following the council's deep cuts into the police budget this year, a spike in crime and some of these areas around the University of Texas Well, I bet says he's considering creating what's called a Capital zone that would be overseen by the state's patrolled but patrolled by Austin cops. The last thing they should do. Is to defund law enforcement. And yet That is exactly With the city of Boston is done now Areas of town that habit is considering to include downtown and central Austin, the U. T campus and then a larger area around the state Capitol. Jump in here at 51283605 nights. And even Barack Obama thanks that deep funding the police is a really, really bad idea. At least he doesn't like the language of it. He doesn't like that word that like the word he likes the idea of de funding police and reimagining cities in police. He just he he thinks that that word was a bad choice of words. Yeah, itwas, but at least they were honest what they were trying to do. Well, I have no problem with this idea whatsoever because we want the city to be safe that the governor lives here. And that's unfortunate. It should not happen. It should not even be a discussion to me. Is it still a surreal thing that the consideration of making your city less safe? Is a strong possibility. Listen, I don't like the idea on the surface, but I totally get it. Yeah, this police department is stretched to its limits. Morale is in the dumper. They their arms are tied when it comes to policing in many areas of this city. I hate the fact that the state may move in and take over portions of the city. I hate that idea. However, it may be needed at this point. Damn right? Yeah. I hate that. I hate the need of Ford. I hate the reason for it, but Um, I I'm glad that someone's paying attention. And I think the word about see big pushback against thinking like this. We are seeing a pushback against it. I hope so. And the way to push back is elect Ah, a couple of new politicians in this area to defeat those incumbents in those two city council seats District six and district 10. Got Mackenzie Kelly endorsed by the Austin Police Association, and he got Jennifer Virdon endorsed by the Austin police Associations there in district six and district 10 respectively, going against Jimmy Flanagan and Alison Altar. And, Yeah, those McKinsey, Kelly and Jennifer Verden are the two that the Austin Police Association support We've had a bolt on our show. We've had all four of these candidates on our show before over the years, but this is a way for you to really push back against this Democrat Socialist agenda at Austin City Hall of de Funding. Reimagining in ballooning the homeless crisis, your taxes going through the roof the way that Mayor Adler, you know, goes to Kabul, San Lucas after telling you to stay home, this is this is a really a chance for voters of Austin, Texas, who are really concerned about their city and put politics aside about what side of the alley Iran. Send a message to the City Council that you want. At least some diversity of thought on the city can very important. I don't recall him or important City Council race than this or important runoff in this we've got to have Some conservative screaming conservative screaming in City Council chamber just had a sense, man. Some common sense always comes in handy. Listen, if you jump in here way, See you call it in. We'll get to you in the next segment. Stay with us, 51283605 90. It is 609 and time for the rush.

Now here are Todd and done So Dr Fauci, he says that everybody will be able to walk into a CVS or Walgreen's in April and get the covert vaccination, he says. We can return to normal if 80% of Americans get this shot. Are you ready to line up and get this shot? 51283605 90. I will have the advantage. And you as well, Of course, Frontline workers, You know they're gonna be a priority first responders, the elderly will get it before may, So we'll have the advantage of being able to see if anybody starts dropping dead or anything like that. As a result, so that there will be some guinea pigs. At course. They've already used two individuals, many many 1000 I feel confident about it. I do. And yes, I will be in line. Probably a Walgreens, not CVS. Not one Tuesday, the advisory committee will meet with the C D. C today to look at who gets the vaccination. First health care workers those in nursing homes likely to be first in December, followed by seniors you know those with you know, in the higher risk categories. The FDA ultimately In charge of approving the vaccine is due to meet December. The 10th on Dhere is a quote by the time we get to April, they'll likely have taken care of the high priority. And then the general population of normal, healthy young men and women 30 to 40 years old. No underlying health conditions could walk into the CBS of the Walgreens to get their covert Coco the Rhona shot. Get the Rhona Yeah, the groaner Needle. Yeah. I just wonder. I mean, I just I just wondered what we reach 80% vaccination. I don't think we will. You don't know I don't weigh. Don't even reach anywhere close to that. When it comes to the seasonal flu shots, he says, you want to get a 75 to 80% get vaccinated if that happens. Then by the end of the second quarter of the year. This pandemic as we know it will be well suppressed beyond the danger point will be able to go back to normal, he says. It's what Dr Anthony Fauci told Mark Zuckerberg in a Facebook live interview just yesterday. Given the enormity of this and the way it's changed all of our lives, whether you've had it or not, what it's done to this country what is done in the world? Todd. I think given that I think 80% is realistic. There are those anti vaxxers out there. Yeah, but And you're right. Maybe there's a fear factor to this. Yeah, exactly. You know what I mean? I mean, yeah. The flu can be deadly. But there's more of a fear factor with the road. Yeah, I think I think the desire to to be done with this and get on with our lives. Eyes so great that I think 80% is is realistic. Now Asked about the side effects of the vaccine, he said, some people maybe getting an aching arm off mild fever, but that should go away within 24 hours, a maximum of 48 hours. The adverse effects are low grade. They are mild and we'll go away is what Dr Anthony found, she said. What? What that tells you is the body is responding well and making the kind of response that you want, he said. A relatively risk of this, The relative risk of this compared to risk of others is minuscule, emphasizing the risk of everyday things like getting in your car. No. Now we're using the getting in your car's analogy. Yeah. You're more likely to get hit in your car today. Then get the Kona. Yeah, I mean, Yeah. I had a very sore arm after flu shot this year, So you know, my my fear of the flu shot was always Oh, I'm gonna get the flu. I don't want to get the flu is a result of the shot, but I finally relented last year and this year S so anyway, I am absolutely unit. I think that more people than you think. Explain why you never you. You changed your ways. Why did you not get the flu shot before? Well again, I didn't get it. Before, because I guess I Bought into that myth or whatever it is, Or maybe it is true that some people do get ill if they get a flu shot that they literally get the flu because essentially, they are injecting you with flu. S O. I just never really wanted to volunteer to get the flu. But finally, you know, come to life. She'll get in line to get the Rhona. Well, no, but again left last year, And this year I didn't get a flu shot. I realized, you know, not getting younger and need to take this more seriously. Kyle is on the top of Don show this morning. Hello, Kyle. No. Hello, sir. I'm online one Collins Lukeville. Good morning. Hey, I was going down Good. Um, So with the whole covert vaccination and everything like you were saying, we don't know the side effects and you know it's going to go to the elderly and the first response workers first. But what about the newborns and stuff like that? Are they gonna be eligible for the vaccine or The suborn saying We're not on the FDA board. They have it. They haven't released the list yet. What are your thoughts on that Kyle? I mean, I personally will not inject a newborn baby with Coburn vaccine. I don't know that they're a priority. Not a priority huts, but I mean, they're way way down on the list. Haven't been high. Risk it all nine minutes. Zero risk pretty much Yeah, but Kyle says he would not give that shot Tol Infant. Well, that might be at this point. It's probably not a good idea. Why is that, Kyle? I mean, just you know their little body and injected him with a whole bunch of chemicals and the vaccine and everything And like you said, there's a possible chance for side effects and Yeah. I don't think you'd be good for Children, Would you? Would you get the shot, Kyle, But I get the shop personally. Yeah. I mean, I probably after a few rounds of it going through. You sound like a young, healthy guy. So I mean, it sounds like you'll have, you won't have to make that decision immediately. Yes, sir. Yes, sir. Thank you can appreciate you call me good luck to you. Yeah, Yeah. I don't think infants are gonna be a real issue. I mean, Have you heard of any newborns having the cove it? No. Yeah, I am not either maybe the recurrences of it, but it's got to be so minuscule of in amount. So, Yeah, I need to bring something up. I had.

There's no denying it. You know, there's not just looked just drive around town. Take a look for yourself. Talk to anybody. Everybody is totally totally frustrated. I think the people I I've never had a conversation with the single person in this town and I have a pretty actually a pretty eclectic group of people around me Pregnant, pretty eclectic group of friends. As far as you know, the way they lean conservatives and Democrats and liberal, the whole spectrum is around me, and I've never talked to anybody that thought that banning the camp camp. In ordinance was a good idea you ever ever ever ever I don't know who it is, but apparently there's enough out there. They're going. Yeah, the great idea. Let's make this town look worse and then also works for the homeless that it's been almost done His foster more resentment towards the homeless. It's made us unfortunately.

There's no way on God's green Earth that the City Council could accomplish what this group has accomplished in a matter of days. They they're going to put 200 people in a home. In a matter of days in the city Council has got so much more money to do this, and they just can't do what this group has done. They can't right. Yeah, This is the power of what can be done when you don't have the bureaucracy and the government involved. What we need to get back to you is understanding that Um, a charity is the way to help people who are in need. Yeah, they're able to come in and set these little homes up in 30 minutes, Literally. Whereas we have these hotels that they spent millions on that. We really don't know what the status is on those things at all. Yeah, Yeah, It's good.

"Mostly sunny. Nice day today, the high and 79 it would be cleared tonight. Low 52 from the Weather Center. I'm Steve Williams. This segment brought a 34 Todd Jeffries don Prior and joining us on the live celebrity news line. Her name is Ellen Trucks clear from the Texas Public Policy Foundation, formerly of the Austin City Council war. Old renowned best selling book author Ellen Trucks. Clear Good Morning. That point how you doing this morning? You're my height, man. I'm trying trying to hype it up here and, well, everything I say everything I said was true. That was true threat was a spit in the truth. Hey, I'm so glad you're here this morning Doctor s got in the mayor talking about the possibilities of moving to stage four restrictions that could roll back capacity. It's really up to the governor on all of this. What do you make of some of these changes that are in the making. Um yeah. So first of all, the numbers in Austin are not nearly as bad as some of the numbers other places so we are. We still have very low infection rates very low hospitalization rates. S so I would encourage Dr S. Scott and Mayor Adler to make decisions based on our city not based on news from other places. I also interested to see over the next couple of months. If you know Biden ends up in the White House, how that is going to change. The governor's governor, Abbott kind of stance towards this issue because if he implement if he implement some kind of national mass mandate or national stay at home order, or some of these other things that he's been talking about, adding, it is going to be put in the position where he's gonna have to align with other Republican governors and kind of, you know, fight back. So you know many. I think some on the right have have thought that he needed to stand up to the city's more and restrict their ability. Tol Restrict their citizens on Catch us up to date and let everybody know some people may not be aware of the names involved. Yes. So in this, I know that the election in the federal level is is somewhat over. But on the Austin City Council level, we have two of the biggest opportunities to get some levelheaded common sense. People elected district Kin is with kind of West Austin area in Jennifer Verden. Is challenging and the incumbent Alison Altar in that feet. She has an excellent chance of winning. But it's all in these runoff election. That's all about getting people back to the polls because people think wait the election's over. What do you mean? There's still we have to go back. So between December 3rd in December, 15th You. Anybody who lived in the district's needs to go back to the polls. And, of course, I'm endorsing Jennifer Burden. She has pledged to reinstate the homeless camping ban as well as refund the police department so very excited about her candidacy. And this is an excellent excellent opportunity for us to Actually kind of practice what we preach. We all complain about what the city Council is doing. But this is this is our operative. This is our one chance right now to do something about it. Let's keep in mind as well. She she's not. She wasn't that supportive of property. It's already a done deal property, but at least she would be there to keep the checks and balances and you know it sound. The alarm and with some crazy spending happens is Part of this plan. District six You got Jimmy Planning and the incumbent downtown Jimmy Flanagan and Mackenzie Kelly. Tell us about that one. Yes. Oh Mackenzie Kelly has again an excellent chance of this eating and Jimmy plan again in northwest Austin. They'll be on the ballot in the same dates. December 3rd through December 15th. Let me plan again has just really Mean pistol of people off over the past several years and his stances on Ah lot of things and also his just treat his belittle met his approach. He's very abrasive, very disrespectful on Mackenzie. Kelly has an excellent chance of getting on that council on bringing some economic common sense. Some, you know, fiscal responsibility and kind of all the things that I know how badly we need. On that council, So I hope that everybody energy you're not in this district. Don't just tune it out. Posting on social media spread the word people need to know that this runoff it's happening. You can also hope by volunteering for those campaigns. Even if you don't live in the district, and of course, fight for austin dot com, is an organization that I'm a part of and we're helping Tol elect Election date is December the 15th. But early voting begins when December 3rd December the third, so that's important December the third early voting an election day in December. The 15th at the very least, this an opportunity for taxpayers to send a message to this city council that, hey, we're not excited about what you've been up to. At the very least, it would be nice to have some some diversity of thought on that council. There's another big story in the news this morning involving our attorney general Ken Paxton, the FBI apparently now investigating, he said, a couple people in his office that made some some allegations of bribery and Using the office for Personal Gain. Update us on what is happening in this office, the attorney general's office Yeah. So the just of the story is that one of his big campaign contributors was under investigation by the FBI. I and that Ken Paxton kind of intervened and tried to protect tried to protect this campaign donor and eight people in his office have have come out and made allegations of basically abuse of office so yesterday. Impact in China came out with his first response, his first statement saying, I'm not going to apologize for for defending, um, defending people's right, private right. Basically saying he was on the right side of this issue, so I It isn't very interesting. Thing to see play out because, of course, the attorney general is an incredibly powerful position in our in our state and statewide elected official. He wasn't up for election this time, but he will be next time and so it will be interesting to see how this turns out, and it could have big implications on you know some of Texas's lawsuit on the federal level Against all kind of all kinds of things so I don't know. I don't know. I don't know what to believe. Now. It's very It's very kind of sounds like these incredible allegations. It sounds very real, like, you know, I mean, and I haven't really seen any others. You know, politicians at the highest level in the state come to his rescue. That that that is right in the past, when he has been in, uh, he's been in hot water previously, and he had other, you know, highlight high like officials and other influencers and in Austin and in Texas. Kind of say Absolutely not. This is totally inaccurate and send him We haven't really seen that as much. In this case, and you know the number of people who have made the allegations eight people on his office is quite it. It's not just one whistle blower. Let's be football. Baseball, you might not know. Mostly been fired. Yeah, that's true it. Listen, I don't want to put words in your mouth, but maybe it's time for him to go. I'm just you know, that's my opinion. You could hold yours, but maybe it's time to go. Well, you said it, not me. Yeah. Hey, Ellen. Tell folks how to find you. You can find me on all kinds of social media, social media, You know, that's where everybody's at. I heard you guys talking about that at Ellen. Trucks player. Go, Ellen. Thank you so much.

"Welcome to the title Don show joining us on the celebrity hot line from the How the GOP of us Travis County of Matt Mackowiak is with us. Good morning, Matt. How are you? Good morning, guys. How you doing, Doing greats? Man? What do you make of this incredible voter turnout. We've heard today's the last day of early voting. How about this amazing early voting turnout here in Travis County? Gets really high. I mean, Texas is and I mean, excuse me. Travis County's unusual because we have think 97% of registered voters, which I don't know there's probably five counties in the country that have that. So it's a very engaged electorate here on DH, but yet turnouts and high as you heard, the clerk say, maybe 80% turnout, which is extremely high. Um, you know, I think if you look at the data of who's voted, it's pretty clear. Democrats voted the first few days of early vote. And Republicans have been voting throughout the three weeks and they've been chipping away at that Democratic lied with every passing day, so Republicans are need to go out early vote today and then you need to vote on Election Day. You're gonna see much longer lines on election day. That's a little note. There's really not much reason toe. Wait unless you just absolutely feel you have to vote on Election Day for some patriotic reason. But really, your vote counts the same, so I would really encourage people take advantage today. Vote. Travis Dotcom shows all the locations that has weight times on there, you know, Make it easy on yourself as possible, Don't you? No leave to chance whether you're going to actually be able to vote on Tuesday. Absolutely. Now the national election, obviously bringing a lot of people to the polls, But we have several city council seats that are up for grabs. The incumbents really being challenged for the first time in years, You got an incredible transportation bond package of $7 billion of property and then also prop B and then plus, we got the homeless crisis. We got this ongoing feud between the City Council and the police Department. These public safety issues locally are really driving people to the polls. They are and I think I think voters are looking at these issues the local level, not for a partisan radiological ends there looking what's best for for them. They're family. The neighborhood on for the city on I do think these local issues they're driving people out. Look, proper proper project connected A total disaster. Um, you know, if it was a smart plan that was really going to reduce congestion. I think voters to be willing to pay more money. This doesn't reduce congestion and increased property taxes in perpetuity. Um, it's $7 million before they even can begin the project in its multiple phases. Its 45 phases. So I actually really in pretty confidence going to go down. It's going down significantly. Um, these council races. You're right. We've got you know, Half the council up. One of the seats is open. The, um You know the seat Help Help! Bye bye. Delia is open because she's going to be counting, presumably county attorney. But the other four seats are all interesting. I think three of the four going to going to run off, I think District 246 and 10. Excuse me. 26 and 10 are very, very likely to go to run off. We're excited about Mackenzie, Kelly and District six. Taking on Jimmy's plan again. We're excited about the two Republicans running in District 10, Jennifer Virdon and Robert Thomas. I think I think Jennifer is probably more likely to get in the runoff against Alison Altar, and then we'll see what happens in district too. I know a lot of people that are supporting Casey Ramos in that race, see kind of who gets in there and what their positions are. But Yeah. I mean, if we're going to start to change the direction of this city towards you know, a pro public safety direction. We're going to have to put two people in the city Council and you know, for a lot of people out there you make. You know, Half the city doesn't have a City council race. On their ballot because they're not up for two more years. So you know you could still get engaged. You can help any of these candidates. I would encourage people to check out Mackenzie Kelly, Jennifer Verden Lewis Herrin, who's running against great Cus are if he could shock the world and feed crickets are That would be an absolutely outstanding outcome from a public safety and taxpayer perspective. Absolutely no, Take a look at some of these polls across the country. It shows Joe Biden and leading and some I just want to get your reaction to some of these polling numbers and and the possibility of some of those dreamers out there that say that Texas could flip. What do you think? Yeah, Look, I mean, it touches his tighter than it's ever been at the presidential level. Certainly since probably 1919 89. Excuse me, 1976 when Jimmy Carter wanted, um, you know, I've been saying for months. I think it's going to be a 5 to 7 Point went for Trump. It's possible to be a point or two less than that. You know what's clear in Travis County also clear the state love statewide level that is said before the demo turned out very heavy on the first few days of early voting, and Republicans have been shipping away at it. Every single day since then, and so, you know, we'll see how many votes come in. Today. You might have 500 thousands coming today on the last day of early voting, and then you know, we'll see what it's like on on Tuesday. I mean, we're going to hit 11 million total votes across the state, which is obviously a record. We make it 12 million. The presumption is the higher the turnout, the better it is for Democrats and, you know, looked at that stops the belief on their side. We'll see. I do. I'm highly confident trumps go in Texas if he doesn't It's gonna be a landslide election for buying which I think is unlikely, but the margin matters went when, when Cruz one Texas By 2.6% 2 years ago, we lost 12 House seats. When Trump won Texas by 9% in 2016. We only lost five House seats. That difference is the difference between whether Republicans hold the Texas House after this, remember or not, because the Democrats need 19 to take the Texas House backto margins gonna matter. You know, the Democrats have ignored Texas. This is the biggest reason I don't think Texas is in place. The Democrats aren't trying to win it. Sending Kemal Harris to three cities today is not does not make Texas a battleground state you have to invest over a period of months..
