"Large banner reading rescind the doctrine, just as Pope Francis was starting mass. Their sign was referenced to the 15th century doctrine of discovery used by the Catholic Church to justify the European colonization of indigenous lands. And those are some of the headlines this is democracy now democracy now dot org the war and peace report. I'm Amy Goodman. We begin today's show looking at how apac the American Israel public affairs committee is spending millions of dollars in primary races to defeat progressive Democrats. In Michigan, where voters go to the polls on Tuesday for a primary election. A PAC has spent over 3 million dollars targeting and 11, a two term member of Congress. Levin is a former president of his synagogue. He comes from one of the most prominent Jewish political families in Michigan. His father, Sandra Levin, served in Congress and his uncle Carl Levin was a U.S. senator. Congressman Randy Levin is a self described zionist who supports a two state solution. But earlier this year, a former president of apac described Levin as quote arguably the most corrosive member of Congress to the U.S. Israel relationship. Due to redistricting, Levin's opponent in Tuesday's primary is another incumbent. Haley Stevens, who is embraced apac support. Senator Bernie Sanders is heading to Pontiac Michigan today for a campaign rally with Levin and Congress member Rashida Tlaib, who's also been targeted by outside money groups. A new pack aligned with apac run by bakari sellers has vowed to spend over $1 million to defeat Rashida Tlaib, who's the first Palestinian American woman to serve in Congress. This all comes just weeks after 8 packs spent nearly $6 million in Maryland to defeat former democratic Congress member Donna Edwards and her primary. Other progressives who lost after being targeted by a pack include Nina Turner in Michigan and Jessica's in Ohio and Jessica cisneros in Texas. One prominent critic of apex actions has been Peter beiner. He's editor at large of Jewish currents. He recently appeared on democracy now. So what this play is really about is trying to create a whole new generation of younger Democrats in Congress who will tow the apac line on Israel Palestine

"For Tommy Altman and Andy bond with 2.3%. So right now, Jen and kiggins, the clear leader in that race, and let's move down to district 7, the other one we're watching, yeltsin Vega has 26% of the vote right now, so leading that one, but just under that, Derek Anderson 24% of the vote, Bryce Reeves with 22%, and crystal Vaughan with 17.8%. So those are really close and then we have David Ross with 5% and Gina, CRC with 3% or watching those top four right now is only 34% of the votes have been counted so far. So a lot to watch here this evening as for D.C., the polls there closing at 8 o'clock tonight and we're watching to see if Democrats want mayor muriel Bowser to have a third term and the big issue for voters appears to be who they think has the better plan to combat crime in the city. You have two of a progressive challengers, council members, council member at large, Robert white. And we have ward 8 council member Trey on white all going for that seat. Along with a third challenger that former AMC commissioner James butler watching that one again, the polls closing at 8 there. So if you're in line by 8, you can vote and we have democratic attorney general car racing stepping down, so three attorneys from D.C. Bruce by the bride Schwab and Ryan Jones hoping to take his place there and several council seats up for grabs, including ward one, where we had a 15 year old this week who has recently killed him. It was killed in a shooting after the motella vent to crime a big topic in that area ANC commissioner stable Harris, former detective Salazar puri, and we have incumbent brianda dough. The other two are trying to unseat her for the democratic nomination there. So we're continuing to watch things for you. Again, the polls closing at 8. We're going to have the numbers for you here tonight on the air. And of course online, a WTO dot com. Mike Morello WTO news. Next to Mitchell Miller, our Capitol Hill correspondent joining us live. I should tell you Mitch for this go round we're dealing with just about a minute of airtime here. A quick word about Don buyer, he did face a challenge, but of course you'd want to take anything like that very seriously as an incumbent. Right, Don buyer was clearly expected to win this race. He's a good fit, frankly, for Arlington, a very liberal district, the 8th district. He had his most competitive race really back in 2014 when he took the seat from after Jim Moran stepped down from office ever since then. He's been a strong incumbent candidate there has never really faced any serious opposition. So his win over Vera Singh not surprising. About Elaine luria in the 7th district, no excuse me. In the second district, and then of course, 7th district seat of Abigail spanberger, a couple of believed to be very vulnerable Democrats. That's right. And we talked a little bit about Elaine luria, Abigail spanberger, also facing a lot of Republican opposition 6 candidates running for her seat. One of them to keep an eye on tonight is state senator Bryce Reeves of spotsylvania county. He's a former Republican nominee for lieutenant governor. He's been a state lawmaker for three terms now. He's probably running the strongest, thus far, but as Mike just noted, yes, le Vega from Prince William county. She is an early leader in that race. That one is really a toss up that could be anybody's race tonight. Also tonight, there's a final result in a high profile U.S. House race in Texas. Can you tell us about that? Right. Congressman Henry cuellar, he was the only anti abortion Democrat left in the house. A lot of people wondered what would happen. That race has been back and forth back and forth, even though it ended a while ago. Finally, tonight, his opponent, a progressive Jessica cisneros has conceded. So Henry cuellar will be running in the fall election in that race. All right, we'll try to catch up with our Mitchell Miller a little later to talk about January 6th, another big story on a night where we have had quite a few of them here on WTO pain. And as we get ready for some local primary results and we are starting to get some in, we're going to speak now with WTO's Luke lucrative. Here on Florida avenue

"jessica cisneros" Discussed on The Dinesh D'Souza Podcast
"I think you know our very interested in the Hispanic vote in particular in the Rio Grande valley in the south part of Texas and honey, you were just talking to a mom. Yeah, so this morning I was chatting with mom on the way here. I chat with her every morning coming to the studio and she goes, hey, have you heard about Henry cuellar's fight to stay in Congress? And of course, you know, today is the election for the primary. Well, it's the runoff election. Oh yeah. So apparently he's in a runoff with this woman named Jessica cisneros, who is touting him as the Joe Manchin of Congress. So it's to say a word about quail. What is it about clay that makes us made him a target? Well, queer is one of maybe two blue dog Democrats in Texas. He is pro life, and of course he is pro legal immigration, and he is very much against the whole Biden administration, fiasco with the border. And he's been very vocal about it, but in this instance, she is running against him because of roe V wade. Because she's telling all of her supporters and all the Democrats, and of course, let me quantify that with she is backed by miss the Latina from New York, what's her name? KFC. I can't believe I forgot her name. Yeah, I like to forget her name. But anyway, so she's backed by her, so she's very much on the left wing left, left, left. And so her big fight with Henry cuellar is that he is pro life and that he's taking away women's rights because as they, as you know, the Democrats go with this mantra of it being a healthcare right, not murdering an unborn child. So I mean, their view is that you can't have. You can't have a pro life legal immigration advocate in the Democratic Party. They basically and you know, to be honest, he's not, you know, even though he is, he says he's a very good Catholic, and he says these pro life, he still thinks it's okay to abort up to 20 weeks. So let me quantify that. So he's more of a moderate. He's not a hardcore pro life. It's not a hard hardcore pro life or no or hardcore Catholic no, but in her eyes, yes. Absolutely. He should not be in the Democratic Party because he makes too many waves. And because he actually does like to work across the aisle, which, as you know, by now, Democrats do not. And but he did vote against Trump twice in the impeachment. So that's, you know, we should say that even though we are grateful that he has been this much of a, you know, I'm going to get along with the Republicans. He's not completely there, either. And you've talked to him. Isn't he the guy you talk to about? No, no. That is another pro life Democrat from the valley. I've never met cuellar before. In fact, it'd be kind of fun to have him on the podcast at some point, just to see what he really believes and why he's still a Democrat kind of like with Joe Manchin. Now the valley I would guess is pretty there's a strong pro life element there. There's probably also a lot of people who've had abortions. And so what do you think holiday politics going to play out? Is this going to be a winning issue for here for her? I'm not, it may be a winning issue for Democrats in the primary, but I am not so sure about the general election because as you know, the valley has been going red. There's been a red wave happening where they realize that voting for a Democrat is bad in many ways, many levels, not just the social because this is part of just the social, but also the economic. They know that voting for a Democrat really produces hell on earth. So honey, what you're saying is that it could be that it's actually a stronger go cuellar is a stronger candidate in the general. In the general. But if he gets knocked out in the prime, in the runoff and this woman run, she might lose that. And the Democrats and the Democrats know it. That's why they're not all kind of on board with endorsing her because they know that there's a really big chance that they could lose in the general because she's too far left. For them. And for the valley. Well, I mean, there's a broader trend here, AOC has been talking about. We got a primary cinema. We go to primary mansion. But of course, you knock out cinema in Arizona, and you're probably going to lose that seat. And for sure, if you get rid of mansion in another democratic place, West Virginia is going to go. Do you think? And I do think that if this Jessica cisneros is to beat him in the general, I mean, in the primary, I don't think she's going to win in the general, so maybe it's actually kind of good. It might be a good.

"jessica cisneros" Discussed on CNN Political Briefing
"David challenging, the CNN political director, this is the CNN political briefing. Here's what you need to know in politics for Monday, may 9th. As the country awaits a final decision from the Supreme Court on roe versus wade, both parties are starting to mobilize and message around a potential post row world. As you certainly know, the Supreme Court has not yet issued its formal and final decision dealing with the 1973 landmark ruling of roe versus wade, but that leaked draft opinion authored by justice Alito that emerged last week, clearly indicates that the court is poised to perhaps sweepingly overturn that decision that guaranteed abortion rights nationwide for women for nearly the last half century. This now is prompting a national conversation both in terms of the substance and reality for women across the country and for the politics of this very controversial issue, what does a post row world look like? Well, Mitch McConnell, the Senate Republican leader, he gave us a little hint of what it could possibly look like and perhaps, at the same time, gave Democrats yet another opportunity to galvanize and mobilize their base around this issue. In an interview with USA Today, Mitch McConnell said that a national ban on abortion. Now I'm talking about legislatively, from the Congress, a national ban on abortion is possible. He was evasive when he was asked questions about, you know, if Republicans do take back the Senate in the November midterm elections, you know, is this something that he would jettison the filibuster for, try to get this through with just a simple majority. His answer to that was, quote, all of this puts the cart before the horse. You obviously doesn't want to get ahead of those November elections. But he went on to say that if the leaked opinion became the final opinion, state and federal legislative bodies certainly could legislate in that area. Quote, so yeah, it's possible. It would depend on where the votes were. This immediately took the issue just from sort of a state by state, blue versus red state kind of battle to a national conversation where a democratic members of Congress, senators are now sort of rallying around and using McConnell's words as a reminder to voters of where Republicans are suggesting they may want to take this issue once roe V wade, should that be the case, is no longer the law of the land. Gavin Newsom, the democratic governor of California, who's up for reelection this year. He started taking on his own party and urging national Democrats to up their game and energy in trying to mobilize around this issue. Here he was last week in Los Angeles. Where the hell's my party? Where's the Democratic Party? Where's the counter offensive? That prompted my colleague Jake tapper to ask senator Kirsten gillibrand, Democrat of New York, who was a guest of his on State of the Union on CNN on Sunday. Where is the democratic counter offensive? We are not giving up. We will never give in and we will keep fighting. And if the American people are paying attention, this issue will also be on the ballot in November. We need to make sure that every single voter understands that the Republican Party and Mitch McConnell does not believe that their daughters that their mothers, that their sisters have rights to make fundamental life and death decisions. Listen to this compilation of four different democratic ads, now running in states such as New Hampshire, North Carolina, Texas, Wisconsin. A woman's fundamental rights are freedoms. Hang in the balance. We don't want politicians making healthcare choices for women. Jessica cisneros is the pro choice candidate who will fight for our healthcare and always protect our right to make our own decisions. People like us won't have access to care and we will die. That was Maggie Hassan, the vulnerable incumbent democratic senator running for reelection in New Hampshire. Sarah got loose key, candidate for the Senate in the democratic primary in Wisconsin, Jessica cisneros and a democratic primary in Texas for the house and nita alum. Also, a democratic primary for Congress from North Carolina. If you didn't listen to Friday's episode about our exclusive CNN polling on this issue, I would urge you to go back and give that illicit, but one key thing to remember here that's going on with the polling. You may ask yourself sort of, why are Republicans more focused on the leak or why are they not out there celebrating that row may be overturned? Well, obviously the reason is because it's a widely unpopular position, two thirds of the country wants to see row in place. So Republicans don't feel sort of celebrating the demise of roe is a politically popular thing to do. However, why then does Mitch McConnell suggest that there may be legislation to occur in a post war world for a national ban on abortion? Why do you hear Republican governors evading questions about what may come next in a post road world? Well, because what we are seeing in our polling is that even though fewer people are happy about the notion of roe being overturned, those people are telling our pollsters that they're more motivated to actually show up and vote in this election season. Not the larger group who actually would be angry if roe was overturned, they're less motivated than the other side to show up and vote in the midterm elections, at least according to our initial poll taken last week. As for those Republican governors, listen to Mississippi governor's Tate Reeves. He would not give a firm yes or no answer on whether birth control may be the next privacy right that the Supreme Court had already ruled on that may be out the window. Here he is with my colleague Jake tapper on CNN State of the Union. So just to be clear, you have no intention of seeking to ban IUDs or plan B that is not what we are focused on at this time. And as we've talked about, there are a bunch of states with trigger laws that would immediately go into effect once row is actually overturned. Michigan has one of those laws, the democratic governor there, Gretchen Whitmer took to the pages of The New York Times op-ed section to issue a call on fellow governor state legislators.

"Final match ups aren't yet set the match for governor is democratic beto o'rourke easily won his primary here he is in Fort Worth last night We have got to get past the incompetence the corruption and the cruelty of Greg Abbott Are you with me on this Greg Abbott the Republican incumbent governor here he is speaking to supporters in Corpus Christi Where we have protected your constitutional rights they threaten to take them away Where we have promoted exceptionalism they stoke beer mongering We will not let them win this state Houston public media's Andrew Schneider is covering this primary Hey there Andrew Good morning Well you've got an interesting matchup coming up for governor Yes this is definitely what was expected Abbott's popular with conservatives He had several challenges from the far right but he was able to dispatch them easily This sets up a high profile governor's race beto o'rourke of course is a former congressman and presidential candidate who made waves in Texas with his challenge to senator Ted Cruz That was ultimately unsuccessful He gained a lot of supporters and established an organization then but pre primary polling has found Abbott besting o'rourke and Texas hasn't elected a democratic governor in more than three decades What are some of the other races of interest And I mentioned this just because taxes is such a huge state that some of the down ballot offices are still races that get national attention Right Another state wide race with an incumbent Republican getting challengers attorney general Ken Paxton He's a prominent Trump supporter and a full of the Biden administration but he's been dogged by legal investigations And so he drew three challengers he did get the highest vote share with Texas operates with a runoff system So if a candidate doesn't get more than 50% of the vote the top two vote getters go to a runoff which will be in May His opponent in the runoff is George P Bush the state's land commissioner and son of Jeb Bush Um another generation of the Bush family trying to rise A lot of the congressional seats that will decide control of the House this year are in Texas How do those things shape up Well one of the big races that I was looking at was actually on the democratic side in South Texas It's a battle between longtime relatively conservative congressman Henry cuellar and 28 year old progressive Jessica cisneros Cuellar actually beats his narrows two years ago so this was a rematch And January there was an FBI raid on queer as home and office that really affected this contest There aren't many details about the investigation and quare says he's done nothing wrong but it recast the race and its final weeks And now quare and cisneros are also heading to a runoff How easily did people vote given that this was the first test of Texas's new voting laws one of many new voting laws passed by Republicans in the past year The law made about a lot of changes one that was kind of under the radar required Texans seeking to vote by mail to include their driver's license or social security number and multiple places on the application and ballot And a lot of people have been neglecting to fill out one or both of these are putting the wrong number and the result is thousands of ballots were flagged for rejection Yeah we've had some reporting on this If you put in one number and then put in a different number in a different form.

"Amy All right thank you Nathan The week ahead is the lead up in Washington the President Biden's first State of the Union address on March 1st That is a Tuesday for more on this We're going to bring in Bloomberg's congressional reporter Billy house and Billy that's where we're going to just get things started with that State of the Union address on Capitol Hill What are you going to be watching for It comes at a time when the president will have to address a lot of issues including deep political divisions but also just divisions on what his administration is doing with regard to the pandemic and attempts to heal political divisions over how he's addressed that Is a lot of his economic agenda has kind of sputtered and so he'll have to kind of pick up and call for unity on getting some of those items passed if not the entire build back better agenda But maybe parts of it that could help people in these times when we see inflation is zooming and questions about what exactly his administration and Congress is doing And just as a reminder for our audience we will be carrying that live here on Bloomberg radio live coverage of the president's State of the Union address You mentioned a bit of him having to appeal to two different audiences during the State of the Union address Not easy to walk the tightrope anyway But will it make it a little bit different a bit of a different flavor since they're going to have to limit seating like they did last time Detention inside the room which isn't often felt for TV viewers would certainly be different I think of a near empty room though would not be as difficult for him to address their have as we know in the past spend some rather crowds in the room people shouting at former president Obama and that sort of thing So we'll have to wait and see Let's shift gears a little bit and talk about the background talks on the omnibus bill Tell us where we stand with that what you're going to be looking for in the coming week Congress there's a large 11th deadline for a huge government funding package It's going to be comprised of 12 individual appropriations bills for the government agencies to keep functioning March 11th is the deadline and there is a top line number they're working on 1.5 trillion But they haven't pulled it all together still And in these next this week and beyond until March 11th there will be some heavy trading and horse trading back and forth if they don't do it They'll have to do yet another stock gap funding bill and what that does is it kind of robs the Biden administration of being able to put their stamp on actual federal agency budgets because it just basically continues existing funding So there will be a lot of behind the scenes closed door negotiations on that As they scramble to get that done by March 11 There is a lot of tension around what's going on with Russia and Ukraine There's a lot of tension around say the global pandemic The omicron variant having surged even though those numbers are starting to drop off now And there's tension when it comes to inflation And how much bang you're getting for your book these days which isn't a whole lot My question for you is as we approach primary season which one is really going to resonate with the voter A very good question and also adding to that tension is the ongoing House investigation into January 6th 2021 attack on the capital And it's increasing focus on Trump himself So as the primaries start to roll out on March 1 there's a primary in Texas that everybody's watching with incumbent Henry cuellar versus progressive backed Jessica cisneros the issue is not only whether a progressive can be defeat a long-term incumbent but whether then either one of them can advance to defeat the Republican in what is now a democratic held seat And as we know well maybe we don't but some 30 can come a Democrat have said they aren't running again this fall So what's playing against everything that happens in Congress right now is the fact that Republicans are breathing heavy they believe they have a real and experts kind of agreed a real chance to take over the majority of this flaw So that leads to a pressure to get some sort of agenda done Democrats that could appeal to a broader spectrum of voters and be get it done fast And we are talking with Bloomberg congressional reporter Billy house about all the things that are going on on Capitol Hill Billy before we started this interview we talked a little bit about how there's nobody in Washington for the next little bit because they're everybody is taking a bit of a break And yet there is so much on the plate of Congress What's the number one issue that they need to tackle in the next week or so Well beyond getting the government funding package through all eyes are on President Biden's own self sort of imposed deadline that he will announce a Supreme Court nominee by the end of February As justice breyer said he'll leave at the end of the term So there's that bubbling in front of everybody and whether or not Republicans could or is there something Republicans could help rally behind and get that justice through or is that going to be yet another obstacle to the agenda the other parts of the agenda And of course what you're referring to more broadly is that the build back better Bill has stalled competes act the two versions passed by both the Senate and the House that were ostensibly designed to provide legislation to help the U.S. compete with China That's how it's been billed but it actually to manufacture its own microchips Do more scientific research with federal money That sort of thing both houses have taken no step to begin two House negotiations come up the final bill on that And that had been a real urgency one wonders.

decided by voters from the border not the Bronx Strother ads we feel confident that our focus on the voters of the twenty eight districts not packs and celebrities from out of state is the best

this district now follow me follow me here but I hope Jessica Cisneros when's let me explain this is a Democrat district it's going to remain a democratic district if the Democrats are going to send
