"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

"Safest seats who often sometimes they're minority seats are they're very liberal constituencies they're tend to be urban oriented I think some of them have been pushing the envelope just a little too far too fast And a lot of them they're young kids that they don't have to worry about paying a mortgage they're not as concerned about the things that I talked about are taxes kids education the safe communities They get into these cultural issues And you know they wanted insist that people after their signature They put down to him his or hers or whatever They wanted a protect people who have historically been discriminated against but sometimes they do it in ways that are not necessarily constructive or acceptable to the majority Congressman I'm sorry that I'm sorry a lot of time This has been a wild conversation I never thought I would have this conversation with Jim Moran Former Virginia congressman and a longtime fixture in Northern Virginia here his take on what may or may not have happened over the last 24 hours Let's assemble the panel I need to learn something from Rick and Jeanne Bloomberg politics contributors Jeannie chanso and Rick Davis I don't even know where I am at this point Jeannie that was a that was quite a review of the Democratic Party on election night That was And Joe I don't know how you're still standing but God bless you You are You're going on adrenaline Definitely hallucinating after all It is you know it is fascinating to listen to both the Congress of congressman and the former congressman And you know I think they make similar points which is something that we've been talking about which is that McCullough really tried to nationalize this race and came off to many voters Not all but many voters being a bit tone deaf to the issues that they're dealing with right now Where is Glenn youngkin was able to localize it and focus on what matters to people in the moment and I think this is something we're hearing about Congress the Democrats in Congress as well They're not addressing or talking about the issues people are going through right now And so I think there's a lot of resonance there and I think it's a huge moment for the Democrats to hopefully pay attention and to be able to adjust to what they learned last night Am I allowed to say that Rick called the race in Virginia I think you even I think he nailed it Rick for starters I'm going to give you credit for that And I just wonder from Virginia to New Jersey which still has not been called This sort of hang over this letdown by the Democratic Party when you're looking at the results from a year ago Are you going to attribute this to the Biden agenda the lack of progress the woke ism in the Democratic Party Where's your head right now Yeah I think congressman Griffith was probably right right I mean like the 12 points swing since Biden won the state a year ago that disappeared this year is probably attributable mostly to the Democrats If young can won the campaign the Democrats were the primary contributing factor behind it And I think that because when you look at his results in Virginia and sir valley's results in New Jersey you can't explain why they're so similar Suburban voters in Bergen county in New Jersey and Northern Virginia voted for the Republican really since the first time since 2000 and 14 because they weren't Trump supporters in 2016 And not since then So chalk one up for the Democrats you keep doing the good work you're doing and the Republican Party will be nice and healthy in 2022 What do you say to that Genie There's still an agenda that's on the table that could actually be passed and Morgan Griffith says it would have been 5 points more for Glen young and if that had been the case Yeah first of all I have to say congratulations to brick I owe him a dinner an hour something I think that was the only gonna bring that up Yeah yeah You know listen Joe it's been a heart It's been a 124 hours but you know I do think that this you know it's important to look at New Jersey in particular where Biden was up 16 And you know a lot of people aren't familiar with some of the local leaders but the Senate president Steve Sweeney has one of the most powerful people in the state for many years He is on the verge of losing to a truck driver who spent $153 on his campaign I mean that is the state And I think that tells you this was about sending a message I believe to the Democratic Party that they are not listening to people on the ground and you had a very energized Republican base and moderates an independence in both states trying to send that message I also think that when you tell voters that their vote is going to send a message to Washington D.C. they take heat of that And I think that's what many voters did They wanted to vote and send a message because when you're voting for this New Jersey truck driver Ed dur this is means you're trying to send a message Morgan Griffith also said Rick that Terry Moran never came down He just wasn't present in Glen young and did a better job traveling the state Is that a fair assessment Yeah look politics matters campaigns matter on the margins right I mean when I look at the underlying turnout in Virginia's election you had 40 municipalities and counties that performed on turnout between 60 and 70% higher than in 2017 for Republicans and two for the Democrats I mean Democrats didn't show up They were not motivated They're not excited Why the democratic leadership in Congress aren't sitting down today and saying whatever we were selling to our constituents we've been kidding ourselves They aren't They aren't ready to be motivated by what we're saying and doing to actually turn out for an election and defend our priorities So I think there's really underlying fundamental issues here when you have that flat of a turnout in what has become a very nationalized election in the last few weeks Would it have mattered if it was a different Democrat running Genie or did Glen young can find the recipe You know I think you know he was a retread McCullough is that's not a good thing but I think young can ran a great race and I think they were sending a message to Democrats Get with it and listen to what's going on in our lives and address it Wow what a half hour They.

consumer prices in the U.S. continue to rise steadily Global news 24 hours a day on air and on Bloomberg quicktake powered by more than 2700 journalists and analysts in over 120 countries I'm Mark crumpton this is Bloomberg David Thank you so much Mark Virginia is holding its gubernatorial election early next month and former governor Terry mcauliffe finds himself in a tightening race with against former Carlisle senior executive Glenn young Ken And he's not sure that President Biden will help him get the job done But we got to get Democrats out to vote We are facing a lot of headwinds from Washington as you know the president is on popular today unfortunately here in Virginia So we have got to plow through For his take on where things Stan welcome now former congressman from Virginia Democrat Jim Moran who now serves as a senior policy adviser to Nelson mandes So thank you so much for being with us congressman I mean you were conscious of a good long time You're from Northern Virginia I should make it clear and that may become relevant Give us a sense about voter turnout and how important that is in this election Voter turnout will determine the winner the Democrats normally have a greater challenge with voter turnout They are based does not tend to vote in off year elections In other words non presidential elections If they don't vote this is going to be a very tough race for Terry mcgough The Republicans and conservatives tend to be more likely to vote in every election They the more outflow went of course you have property and so on to protect and you have more at stake So we've got to show that as a Democrat that the population of broadly has a great deal at stake in this gubernatorial race And obviously it's being seen as a bellwether for 2022 and ultimately for the 2024 presidential So you have such a wealth of experience in Virginia politics particularly on the democratic side Give us your best advice on what it requires to get those democratic voters to show up to vote And by the way our President Biden struggles up on the hill hurting right now the democratic cause Well to answer the first question Terry is bringing in president Obama next week He's got Michelle Obama coming in Stacey Abrams will come in Joe Biden so he's bringing out all the big guns And that hopefully will make some difference particularly in terms of minority voters And in terms of President Biden as supportive as he is of Terry McGowan his numbers are not as strong as they have been They have been dropping We need to get some legislation speaking as a Democrat At least the hard infrastructure Bill needs to be passed to show something material that will affect people's lives And I personally think that he ought to follow Nancy Pelosi's lead She's the strongest political leader in the country today possibly in the world to be honest with you I've seen her perform We never would have had the Affordable Care Act what's called an ObamaCare had it not been for Nancy Pelosi yet it was when president Obama let her take the lead that that got passed And I really think that President Biden would be well served to kind of defer to Nancy's leadership on this She and variably gets the votes And she needs to pull together the votes right now to at least get something passed and not tie it to passage of the three and a half $1 trillion grab bag that progressives understandably want to achieve We have to show something that that is a material benefit to the broad majority of voters particularly in Virginia right now Congressman you're pointing to what might or might not happen about capital hill leads directly to a question I just got from a viewer right now which is has this really become a nationalized election Is it as much about a national election as it is about Virginia this gubernatorial election at this point You know for the last at least 20 years almost all of our elections have become nationalized I don't think that's a good thing But it's the reality right now And yes this is a nationalized election Glenn youngkin is running largely on cultural issues whether it's a so called critical race theory or transgender access to bathrooms or vaccine mandates These things are Decisive determinants of how people vote The things that get people energized and these cultural issues I think are getting a particularly concerned as a Republicans throughout the state energized over things that don't have all that much meaning of their daily lives But they watch them on particularly on conservative channels like Fox News and generates an emotional reaction and that's what he's using to energize his face And Terry mcgoff is not particularly a cultural warrior He just wants to generate more jobs which brings in revenue to the states so that he can he can move Virginia from one of the worst in terms of its spending on public education to one of the best He's He feels that the best social program is a good job And so that should have appealed to the suburbs but some of the folks within our big tent Democratic Party are focused too much on embracing what they refer to as democratic socialism socialism is a toxic word particularly for many of our immigrant populations and their focusing on things that I think are not particularly relevant to the majority of people who live in the suburbs who simply want safe communities a good schools and economic opportunity But that's the reality of the Democratic Party today And how Republicans are getting elected as well today Well let's talk about that economic opportunity as a final question here because we've seen before social issues or cultural issues get out the vote particularly if some of the more extreme wings of both parties is a practical matter But often we're told after the election that it was pocketbook issues that drove it If this becomes a pocketbook issue election.

We actually want. I'm not even sure if you wear manufacturer of the year award a g. in in two thousand nineteen and we also want from government. I mentioned governor. Scott governor Awarded the sterling award two years ago. Just cove it. So that's an outreach. Method but i looked for people and businesses who have a common goal whether it be manufacturing nursery. Were just human services. And i go out. I look for me to get in front of them. Speak to them sometimes solicited in sometimes not. I mean i'll send out random emails about what we do. See if they have an interesting getting together I join different organizations. I'm active in the chamber. You say we run into. Jim moran they. They're a great supporter of ours. The bachelor foundation there multiple people that that we've been able to engage with and it's finding people that want to work with us in in any any way shape or form be especially for an entrepreneur. Get out there. Be seen be known. And keep as i mentioned before flexibility. Be willing to adapt. If you see something that might work say. Well maybe. I need to change what i was doing to get that. Because that's working now and might have to go on hold so it's a combination developing the relationships and then being willing to modify your business model a little bit to make that relationship work if it looks like it's going to go in a better direction for you well for a finance guy really in in a nonprofit leader. You would think that you've been trained on advertising because you truly understand the importance of awareness for your business right in some like you have a big marketing department here but you guys as a team understand that you need to be out there creating awareness and i think even more important bob the fact that you create those relationships without any expectation other than hey. You know who i am. You know what my mission is. What where do you want to go from here. And i've seen you also engage these organizations and say what can we do with you or for you. Which i think is amazing because again embiid.

"I really wanna thank you one for having us including the have central and what you do but we've run into you around town. Jim moran teaching classes for the entra program. Fau at such a so. You do so much for us for the community. I i really thrilled to be with you and thanks so much for doing all the other things you know likewise and it's it's fun to do the podcast that i you know as as you know. I interview business leaders entrepreneurs when i get the opportunity to actually interview someone that i've spent a lotta time with. In your case in the not only outside of the boardroom but in the boardroom watching you in action over the years has been a really one of the great honors of my career. You know really a handful of nonprofits. That i've worked with that. Just i would say in the beginning. I told my wife didn't know that. I was going to grow so much from being involved in those endeavors but i grew and got as much as i gave in so any opportunity that i talked to see owes entrepreneurs and say hey when you get the opportunity in your businesses growing. You can walk like step aside a little bit. Go spend time with a nonprofit whether it's just volunteering or a committee or in my case in the boardrooms because you really do grow right. So tell us about your background bob. I know there's a lot of accounting and finance their me personally a little different route From possibly other. Ceo's of nonprofit. I actually cpa my early years. Spent a price waterhouse at a fairly high level of accounting. And as you talk about being in board rooms with you know with the chairman of the price waterhouse policy committee and the president of ibm It was a great great place to be learned a lot but my true efforts. I grew up rather meager resistance. And so i had a real high level experience. I was looking for something else. And this opportunity popped up. But and i was drawn to the mission what we serve what we do. The people take care of israeli what it boils down to. I have my own family to raise had four children at the time that i started here and it was just an opportunity to give back to this to spend more time with my family as i was looking at other options. That quite honestly maybe a little bit more lucrative than this but it involves travel time away from the family and this really was. My priority was to help my own family as well as the people i serve here. So that's what you were me here in our mission to help. People with adult adults with disabilities. Give them skilled job training skills educational skills and lots of fun in between to make their lives better. And i think we have that in common bob to you know that i have four kids to was the same for me..
"jim moran" Discussed on Post Show Recaps
"I mean. they've only got twenty to go. So i don't know about that i just don't know and that twenty six hundred twenty two but i just don't know about the power dynamic of that and how the show would deal with that and the answer is probably really wouldn't care and it wouldn't make it nasty but that's something very real but i think the show should consider in. The writers hopefully considered when they were deciding whether to bring these two together. I'm just very quickly. There is like the the win loss. Draw record on the board and the in the background. So we know it's a marker of how much time has passed. It's also giving us a real sense of how the team is doing. what are their. What are their prospects for restoring to their former glory such as it were at this point based on the record antonio can they still do it is this is it. Is it hairier than than. Perhaps they would like right. Now it's definitely harrier they'll probably have to go. Fourteen wins for losses and four draws or something to that effect to get themselves into the position. They need to be in. But it's it's doable. It's absolutely doable. If the team takes on an upward trajectory from the holiday period on it's something we sort of loosely mentioned this but in order for them to get back to the premier league. there's two main paths. They could finish first or second in the championship which is seemingly unlikely at this point and probably from a story perspective not what they ever wanted to have be the case because there's less drama in that however the third place team will also go up but the third place in the championship is not determined by just at the end of the season. Who has the amount of points for third place what happens is the third fourth fifth and sixth place teams. Go into a four team playoff playoffs of our be. Good ted doing the. Jim moran you. Could you could so the those teams go into a playoff. So you don't mean to finish even third or you definitely don't need to finish first or second to come up. You can finish sixth and win that playoff and make your way into install. Get promoted i in order to get to those positions six place in the championship. You're typically in the low seventies over the last several years low to mid to high seventies. So what let's just set it at like seventy six points that they need and say that that would probably get them comfortably into sixth place and into that playoff. That means they need to get fifty points. Fifty points from their remaining twenty four matches and if Windsor worth three draws worth one. You can do the math on that to get to fifty points. You're going to have to win a vast majority of those matches and we're looking at a team right now. that's four. four t four wins four losses and fourteen draws something significant has to change for them to get to the point where they're winning now. One of the things with the time jump. We don't know what's broken. We don't know why they're not scoring. We know we had dr fieldstone earlier in the season and she was helping these players and there was a big discussion about whether oh zero wins. Zero losses and eight draws was working since then. It looks like they've improved but not significantly. They're still primarily drawing. So i don't know i just we don't. We don't really know what's happening. We thought jamie tart coming back to. The team might help spark some kind of team. Everyone great one scene for jamie tired here..

Virginia were talking about the republican candidates. For lieutenant governor now next up is businessman puneet ottawa. Unfortunately he did not participate in the chasing freedom forum. That's where i've been getting all the soundbites that we've been using so i don't have that kind of sound from him but he does have several videos on youtube and this is how he introduces himself on youtube whether you're white black or the first generation going like me we're all responsible to make this wonderful country work. We have to demand our leaders fight for small businesses. Excellence in education and keeping up police funded on neighborhoods are safe yet. Another immigrant story. What do we make this introduction. Pony is an activist who has been involved in republican. Party specially in fairfax virginia for several years actually probably a couple of decades and he has been involved in trying to build the immigrant base Within the republican party and he's done some good work however unfortunately all that work was eroded in the last few years and whatever work he did like the work that i did is no longer a useful or applicable To elections today so again another immigrant story and other feel-good story yet an electorate. That really doesn't care for despite claiming that they do. Yeah i think he's got good instincts on what he wants to care about issues. Small business education know and police funding as a misunderstanding of what the policy is actually is being proposed but you know until the republican party can pivot and be pro-immigrant allies. Just running in the wrong race now in terms of issues thomas. You just mentioned several. He hit up there in his youtube. Introduction one issue that he has a whole separate youtube video about and this is a theme among these candidates is critical race theory. I have a prediction that throughout this campaign season we're going to hear republicans talking about critical race theory. So this is what he had to say about it in his video on this subject. Critical race series. America's hopelessly tainted by the boys of racism. And how does that prepare children to be. Scientists engineers poyet's and teachers doesn't critical race. Terry has been thoroughly discredited. All in does teach children to divide to hate to see themselves as victims oppressors. It leads to lower achievement and more quotas. America conley lead the world when we don't even believe in our values but that's what leftist progressive warrenton. Virginia david ramadan. Is this really an issue that is going to resonate with people on the campaign trail. Why is everybody talking about this Because there is a lack off. Resignation issues This is this is going to backfire. No it's not gonna It's gonna backfire and this reminds me of the fight. The republican side had put up against climate change in accepting the fact that there is climate change. Now we need a new issue so okay. This fits within the this. This charged atmosphere So let's play this once. One of them plays that everybody plays and becomes a snowball effect. It will backfire. It's not it's not a general election issue. It's a it's probably the smallest of the smallest issue that's gonna work four convention as well and I don't think we'll we'll hear much of it after As backfires in general elections Except among the extreme segment of the party which does not want us. He's he's simply here is again plan to the to the atmosphere of today's election which really has been referred to a silly season before and and i agree it silly season and will continue to be silly season until the conventions over. Yeah i mean. I don't know how you could possibly save critical race series been thoroughly discredited when it's white supremacy was the very tenant upon which many institutions were founded in this country and it just is what it is. It doesn't say anything about the generations who are alive today whether they'd benefit from it or they don't benefit from it. It's just a simple fact. And yeah. It was so pervasive as we peel back the onion layers. We come to understand. Just how much it's influenced and to me the strikes me similarly to you. David this is just another republican. Sticking their head in the sand look putting on my shore. School had again. It's a theory by definition is theory is an idea that is open for discussion. You agree with you can disagree with you could show evidence for or against but this is not you know h two o chemistry that you could simply discredit or simply proof. So a claim that it's a discredited theory is not up to par on an intellectual level. Yeah also point out that being on the opposite side of the civil rights movement and activists is not where you want to be in twenty twenty one and yet another shout for the sharks excellent job. David ramadan your check in the mail. Okay so the last candidate we're going to talk about is maeve regular now. She did not appear on the chasing freedom forum and she doesn't have a youtube channel in fact she doesn't appear to have much of an online presence at all. She did run way back in the year. Two thousand so more than twenty years ago she was one of the republicans who was hoping to take on jim moran in the eighth congressional district so she's a lawyer from alexandria and she does have this political history where she was an unsuccessful candidate. Twenty years ago. David roman what would make this last minute entrance.

Listen to bobby talk a little bit and you'll hear that salt sweet syrupy south louisiana voice. Our true southern boys right. Yeah it's a little different than new. All has its own unique accent. I've been confused being from boston. New york no. Yeah you know. I hear that now. Wow i do hear that many dollars around the city you know. Talk to different people. You can tell what part of the city from interested in so now. Let's get to the meat of this. You've written a book here recently. Called food for kings. And it's part to crime as part history in his part a recipe book cookbook. If you will food for king diamond jim. A new orleans legend now diamond. Jim mocatta was your grandfather. And there's a really interesting book folks especially if you like to cook. It's got those really great new orleans recipes in it and this guy your grandfather. Your grandpa was one of the most colorful characters in new orleans from what i've read about him. It was unbelievable. Tell us a little bit about yourself and how you got interested in doing this particular book. Okay very first of all. Thank you for having me on your show. appreciate it. earth off a married with two children in military. Over twenty years i retired in two thousand and eight and i've been aircraft mechanic for american airlines and now delta. I picked up this project after my father died and wait basically he motivated me to kind of pick up the torch and carry it. My dad was a dentist for forty years and he always wanted to do a screen. Play or movie per se. He's never do it. I have i did a screenplay originally. But i didn't go anywhere with it so i decided a couple years ago. Put a book together and kind of tell a story about my grandfather while i'm telling. The story basically blended in combination photos and recipes as i journey through his whole life. I start off when he's a childhood and carried on throughout his life until the success of his life until he died. It's a good read. It took me about eight years to go through it and do the research are did get a lot of information from father. My father ahead a manuscript he has deposition that he had put together with a attorney. Back in nineteen seventy seven. So i use all that information and took my tom everything in the book that i've talked about a kind of support it with a document and the article. Either that was given to me handed down to me or maybe that of actually found in the library found a lot of information doing the research about my grandfather in the library his life. It was pretty easy because his life was documented since he was a teenager so every time i tried to fill in the blank. Something in my father didn't pass down to me. I was able to answer all the questions that i wanted to answer about his life. You know interesting. That stuck a little bit about his early life. He fought under the name of jimmy moran which is kind of like no joy hupa in chicago took on an irish name in order to fight. I think more likely it was a lot of prejudice against italians in those days. Especially in new orleans. If you remember we go all the way back to the black hand days and they they killed the chief of police some Supposedly some black hander. Kill the chief of police in of new orleans storm to jail and hung. I dunno must have been six or eight say ends i. I can't remember exactly for sure. How many so. It would have been wise for him to fight on her an irish name. I would imagine tell me about his fight career. Let's get started. Well that was one thing. They kind of treat. My curiosity was widely. Any changes his name in the book. I did find a quote where someone asks them. Same questioned do an interview. He said he did for business reasons. But that was part of it because you gotta realize he didn't get into business opened up first restaurants on nineteen forty nine. He changed his name. I found articles where he had his name change in teens early. Nineteen hundreds. He hung around a couple of friends of his feet. Herman who's an italian pita. Golota was his last name. And the other guy. By the name of powell moran. His name was francis. Paul miranda and all of them were full blooded italian as you know and you listeners. Know that back. Then the titans will kinda frown upon. They weren't considered equal. Maybe to a lot of different even the irish whatever. So i've found out. He had changed his name one. He didn't want his mother was fighting when he was on the fighting card. You know and during the preliminaries in hours fighter. Irish name would draw big crowds for fight. A lot of people don't know new orleans was actually a big boxing city equivalent to chicago and new york but on a smaller scale of course but it was a big boxing town in a drool audit. And that's how he got to meet jack dempsey marciano. You know all those big fights back then because they came to new orleans and then he connected so his first circle of friends will all italians. pete. Herman was abandoned. Champion thinking sixty nine fights from nineteen twelve to nineteen twenty two now as far as my grandfather. He wasn't as big of a boxer as those guys. He did it for my research. Maybe about six years and then he got a little older. He got into referee in and he started refereeing. He did that until about twenty seven years old. Then that's when you up his barber shop in the open up a barber shop with a boxer front of his last name was burke in as when he got an barring after referee
