"Yeah. Working hero Iowa, where anti-poverty nonprofit that focuses on the earned income tax credit, and what we're seeing across the nation in here and I was about twenty five percent of the people who are eligible for their earnings tax credit aren't receiving it. And this is one of the best policies are government have to get people out of poverty in, if you make fifteen thousand dollars or less in your single person your, you'll get money back, but it drastically goes up if you have children in there's a lot of variables after that. So if you have a child, and you're in the forty to sixty thousand dollar range, there's a good. Chance, you can get money back in and just so many stories that here from people who this has benefited, and it them that one time, a year that they can get money back and pay for new tires that allow them to go to work or something like that there, there's so many wonderful stories you hear about that. And so what we're trying to do is talk a lot with these twenty twenty candidates to, to promote it and see if they're willing to expand it, and that's good push we're doing. And we're right now we're kind of transitioning into after tax season that I think there's this national narrative that when we think about poverty we think about, like a homeless tent or something like that. But like it's our neighbors. It's all around us. So many people are living paycheck to paycheck and struggling to get ahead and in it's, it's a no on my block down the street from me. There's a gentleman who retired in the next to them. There's a young family and rumor is on the street that. He he helped pay for their Christmas gifts this year because the family was struggling, and that's my street and over in city in we see that all around. And so we're trying to change the narrative sewn. It's not just homelessness, obviously, we need to help the homeless, but there's so much more that we can do in trying to change the narrative of what poverty looks like. Tell us a little bit about one country this, or that you just joined. Yeah. So I'm extremely honored to be part of this board. It's with two former senators, Joe Donnelly, Heidi Heitkamp, and what they really want to do is, is make sure that the Democratic Party is not forgetting the rural areas. And especially since the last election, I've, I've kind of tried to find a narrative there of being an advocate for that might political heroes or Paul Wellstone, Tom Harkin, Berkley Bedell and. Yeah. And we don't see Democrats like that as much anymore. And so I'm really honored to be part of this board in trying to make sure that, that no places left behind in that we're, we're getting out there. And in my political, philosophies, very simple. If you get out there to the people prove that you're trustworthy, prove you're gonna fight for the people that you're gonna be representing you're going to earn votes, regardless of their voter history. And that's what we did in Iowa's fourth district last year. And I hope to do that again. We'll see. So J D, a lot of people are excited about your political future because of how well you did in twenty eighteen in the district that went for Trump by twenty one points, you seven twenty-seven excuse me. You came within three points of beating the king. Yeah. That's very. A lot of voters who a lot of people who voted for Donald Trump voted for you. Do you talk about sort of how the Democratic Party and democratic candidates can win back some of those Trump voters like you did in two thousand eighteen I mean so much of it? I'll say a lot of it I spent more nights in a WalMart parking lot than I did my own bed, the last month's sleeping in the RV..
Takeaways from the Midterm Election
"Here's the Democrats got control of the house of representatives. And that's a win for the Democrats. The Republicans gained seats in the United States Senate could be as many as fifty five that is also a win for the Republicans and a win for the president because he ultimate firewall in. Any of these issues is the United States Senate? That's the cooling off point. They used to call it. And that's how I view it. So the Democrats won the house the state wide races tended to go to the Republicans. The Democrats picked up some governorships as well. And the twenty twenty campaign starts, that's how I view, but I'm gonna I'm gonna go right around the horn here and kind of get everybody's you'll start with. What is your takeaway from last night number one? The Republicans gained seats in the Senate. What does that mean, it means that judicial? Appointments will move forward under this administration. In other words, the president will be able to appoint and confirm judges who believe in the rule of law believe in the constitution that will indeed be his enduring legacy. Number two. There's a challenge that awaits democratic leadership in the house will they work with the president on bipartisan issues, which advance the interest of working and middle class Americans. Or will they focus on opposition? And investigations that question is yet to be answered. Well, and also Jay you're going around the horn, if a president and the president can can issue executive orders, and they can be changed by the next president legislation enacted by congress can also be changed. But judges have lifetime influence over the United States of America. He already has eighty four judges that have been approved during his first two years. A lot more needs to be approved. If you had to have one chamber of the congress that you have control over it needs to be the Senate. He did that and the Republicans have actually increased their majority in the Senate that will be the most significant thing to ensure an effective presidency of the next two years. So Jordan Republicans beat Bill Nelson. Republicans beat Joe Donnelly, they beat Claire mccaskill they beat Heidi. Heitkamp might be Jon tester. That race is still ten percent out tester has a thousand volt leader. So I mean, so again, those four all voted against Brett caviar all four try to play to the middle and try to act like moderates. And they're the people there states have said, no, we don't buy that. And by the way, your votes show, it clever can even tried to say, I'm not one of those crazy Democrats Sopher. She votes always against always against everything that would be considered even moderately conservative. So I think again, it was a great night's statewide for governor a for a lot of governors races. Well, Democrats did well and some other governors racist. But I will say that there's still more Republican governors in the country twenty-seven, then there are democrat governors. So you have a state advantage there of who is leading or states. It is Republican governors. I think the house. Yes, it could it could have gone better for Republicans. I think the president's right? There are a lot of Republicans that are going home that never fully embraced President Trump. And the kind of cleared them out of the house, and these are all up for real unlike the Senate these are all up for reelection in twenty twenty when President Trump is back on the fan Bennett. So legislation. It was always going to be partisan like the tax cuts. It was important to get that done in the first two years. They did it. Now, they're going to have to shift on legislation to things that are more bipartisan. I think the president's well positioned to do that the two additional items think about how much easier it would be to fill a supreme court vacancy with fifty four or fifty five Senate seats than with fifty one in the final point. I would make the most important power for continuing your draw down the regulatory burden on US companies that exist

"I am not suggesting any racial correlation any innate aspect of race that causes criminality. I'm not suggesting that at all. I'm responding to Don lemon who is suggesting that who brought it up and one has to respond to it because his claim is so widely absurd. But just consider how race obsessed the left is now that we're even having this discussion, what are the causes of crime the causes of crime are evil. What do they call it? What are the causes of evil? Well, there's the personification of evil, and then there are people who through bad culture through bad character through bad situations through bad family, experiences are more likely and more prone to fall into that sort of evil, but Don lemon goes right for race. And the left broadly goes right for race. Obviously, Don, lemon is not a serious person. Don, lemon is the guy when that Malaysian jetliner went down in twenty fourteen. You remember it was this bizarre mystery. Nobody knew where the Malaysia was it was Don lemon who went on television and suggested that there was a supernatural cause that the jetliner was objected by aliens or something we have known for at least four years that Don lemon is not a serious person. But it's very easy to mock him and other media figures when they're suggesting that e t of -ducted jetliner full of two hundred people it's a little. More frustrating when he starts spouting just sheer racism, sheer, uninformed racism on CNN, but that's the life for you. And he's not the only one not to be outdone on racism somebody who has a lot more to lose. Joe Donnelly in a very tight race Senate democrat really really tight statistically dead heat in Indiana. Listen to what Joe Donnelly thinks about race Senator. We want everybody to have a chance in Indiana and in America and my offices reflect that both on the campaign side. And on the Senate side. Our state director is in the in American, but he doesn't amazing job. Our director of all constituent services. She's African American, but she doesn't even more incredible job than you could ever imagine. I could imagine Joe Donnelly. It's actually to me. It doesn't seem bizarre or out of the realm of possibility that black woman could do a good job. I think that's perfectly to be expected. But to you how it's absurd that a black woman could do a good job. What does he say says, you know, our director of this and that he's an Indian American, but he he's one of the good ones. But he doesn't amazing job as though the expectation is that an indie can't do anything. Right. I only know of one Indian who can't do anything. Right. And her name is Elizabeth Warren all of the other Indians. I know are perfectly competent people perfectly intelligent and the way that you know, that this wasn't just a slip of the tongue that this was a little bit more like forty and slip where you say one thing. But mean, your mother the way that you know, that this was more of a forty busy. Did it twice in a row? He doubled down. He didn't hear himself saying, well, he's an Indian but butts. Gate sentences buddy, but subvert your expectations. Well, and she's an African American, but she does a good job a much better job than you could ever imagine. Then some people could ever imagine fine. This is pretty devastating. Because again, look, Don, lemon is not a serious person CNN is not a serious news outlet. So when they push this since ation list, racist, drivel, and slander, it's what we expect they're behaving. How we expect them to? But Joe Donnelly supposed to skilled politician who's a very tight race in the fight of his political career now in Indiana. We'll see if he can preserve it on Tuesday. Then to come out with that statement. It's so sloppy. It's so lazy, and maybe it reflects what he actually believes. Because if that wasn't enough. Let's forget about Don lemon. Let's forget about Joe Donnelly those pip squeaks that minor league. Let's go right to the Queen bee herself Hillary Clinton in conversation at the ninety second street y. With repairman on black people. Cory booker's, and you didn't come to him and your feel I adore.

"A hurricane. There are people who can't get home, and they're not all voting absentee some of them just aren't voting. Some of them are still staying with relatives out of state. That puts Rick Scott at a disadvantage in the Senate race in. Rhonda Santa's at a disadvantage in the governor's race. Indiana. Joe Donnelly had been expected to win reelection to have a tough race but to win reelection. The White House is set both the president and vice president to Indiana and after the cavenaugh situation and Joe down Lee voting against bread capital. Suddenly, the Republican is in the lead in Indiana in Indiana. You suddenly have a really aggressive race. And the Republican Braun is ahead of Joe Donnelly in the polling average by point five percent. But here's the kicker the last two weeks of polling of likely voters have come back with Brown up either four points or three points CBS has up three points, Mason strategies for Indiana politics has four points and even the last survey USA poll, which was done at the beginning of October only had Joe Donnelly up one point the Republicans may very well. Pick up Indiana in Missouri, all of the late police. Ling has has Josh Holly ahead. Fox News pulled the race at the very end of September. And it had a tie race. Missouri. Pauline has pulled it in the last few weeks, and they headed up four they had Holly up for. I'm actually told by number of of people who've done outside polling in this race that in a couple of the bowls. Josh Holly is up double digits in some of the polls up in the eight to nine point area. It sounds very much like Claire mccaskill is toast, and the way she's campaigning. Seems like she knows it Montana is an interesting one because there haven't been very many polls there and John tests are John tester was ahead in Montana. The problem with that is that he's routed all of his Senate staff to Montana to become campaign staffers. And you don't do that if you're comfortably winning. This is going to be dogfight. The White House is sit the president and the vice president out there. They're seeing signs that tester may be beatable. Arizona has Martha Sally now up in the polling average. She is a head. And the polling averages she should keep Jeff flake. See Kristen cinema is turned out to be a terrible candidate has a lot of baggage. Republicans have gotten highly energized out there, and then there's dean Heller. He's ahead by a couple of points. But that's never good because a couple of points in in Nevada could still be a huge democratic turnout. We saw that with Harry Reid against Sharron angle. But he's ahead in the polling if you just took where people are ahead in the polls. The Republicans would be picking up a minimum of three seats in the Senate. So if the tossups are split fifty fifty the Republicans go up to fifty three seats in the Senate. But the odds are that they go up to fifty four seats in the Senate. That's a very big deal for the GOP. They may lose the house, but they'll still be able to put judges on the federal bench. So even if the Republicans lose a week. From tomorrow in the house. They're going to have a good night in the Senate. But but but but that begs the question what about the governor's races? What about Brian Kemp? I've seen the early voting numbers. I'll tell you what I've seen when we come back..

"You had Joe Donnelly, Indiana, Joe mansion in West Virginia, and Claire mccaskill in Missouri. So it's interesting about these races is that Democrats seem to be really faltering in the races that they should be holding onto. So if you look at Florida Nelson and governor, Rick Scott, who's running for Senate in in Florida there sensually tied 'cause they're within the margin of error. Joe Donnelly seems to be up three points right now on Mike Braun in North Dakota, which I mentioned before because that was originally a toss up state Senator Heidi Heitkamp who voted no umbrella Cavanaugh for the supreme court is now trailing. Roughly almost nine points to Kevin Kramer. And yeah. And then in Texas, which was originally tossup state that's leaning more towards Ted Cruz cruises up seven points on beta O'Rourke. And I know a lot of Democrats are pretty excited about Bego. He's kind of become like a nationalized figure for the Democratic Party. I really think that he probably was running more to elevate his platform to possibly run in twenty twenty because brain. But I was also hoping that, yeah, he was breaking. Field looks pretty. I don't know. I mean, I Bernie Biden. I can't deal with any of us not a whole lot of young energy in the Democratic Party after Brock Obama left office, but was interesting is that they actually brought in roughly thirty two million dollars in the third quarter and like mostly from out of state contributions, so. Interesting. Yeah, so and he's not sure. He actually said he's not sharing it with any other Democrats which is kind of I don't know how much he plans to use that to his campaign now versus possibly running in twenty twenty. I don't think I actually don't know of John Cornyn is up that to hold onto that money and use it in a few. Yeah. I mean, the thing is with campaign money. There's so many loopholes with campaign finance laws. There's so many loopholes away that you know, you can bring that in however many millions of dollars in basically transitioned that over to, you know, paying off that and and instead setting up maybe a campaign that you're. Paying off ends up being your twenty twenty campaign. Who knows? But yeah, essentially the democratic ballot in the house is looking pretty strong. You know, you have right now. They're in upper single digits about seven eight points on the generic ballot. That is more winnable for Democrats right now than the Senate is you're probably gonna look at a few. I think Republicans are actually gonna take up maybe. Lose a couple of Senate seats in the movie gain. I mean, that's the possibility, but it's not looking like a sweep at all. Not even close. Come out even heard about the Blue Wave constantly. It's it seems that it's just not gonna meet the expectations. I think many people were hoping and at least on the Democratic Party and following gubernatorial races, I have blatantly been touching on it because I know Andrew gillum Rhonda's Santa's that's probably the most competitive race is polling ahead around a real clear politics..

"Solution slash asset mix, and he adds, don't worry. I'm not a serial killer. I, I'm not sure about that. Fascinating information and a asked US thank you for doing. That's right. And we're the young Turks. Okay. So maybe killer whole acid thing. I'm still giving him a fourteen percent chance of being zero kill. No chance because he's a young Turks member. Okay. And then I'm gonna go to Wesley Miller from YouTube. Super champ for the last one, drum could promise a flying unicorn and his base would believe it related -ly related Lee. There are also preposterous attack ads against Khan Donnelly here in presumably, obviously in Indiana, not perfect, but he's still preferable over any Republican look. We segment on Joe Donnelly and he is grading on the nerves a is a terrible, terrible democrat. Is he better than a Republican? We're in general election, yes, he's better than a Republican and probably by a long shot, but, but that's why we need primaries all day all day. Yeah. And and I was looking by the way the numbers for the Senate elections and it makes bagman it really strong wave and we actually could take the Senate. So that's the good news. The bad news is right now, the police shows a decent amount of losses for the Democrats across the board, not all of them, but North Dakota's almost certainly gone. Does not doing that well, and then the others are super tight, but Republicans still winning in Nevada and and in Missouri. So the Republicans right now, if the pulling accurate and the election were today, they would pick up cease in the Senate. I saw scary poll the hill tweeted. It apparently Trump's approval rating right now, at least according to one poll is higher than Obama's was at this point in his time in office. So, yeah, I mean, listen, this is why you need Justice. Democratic candidates are revolution candidates peachable see candidates, and that's why we need to get involved and do the hard groundwork because that's the only way we're gonna win because I think the if there are more corporate Democrats that are in the general elections, that's when you get the toss braces. Yeah. Yeah, absolutely. All right. And by the way we're of course covering the midterm elections all day long, not just for the regular show and afterwards we're starting early in the morning, so all day on November six, I go out and vote and you can use are apt while you're online.

"I think it's about saving themselves. I think we give these politicians way too much credit. If we're going to say that they care that much about these institutions. I think some of them do care about the institutions, but you know they're facing a lot of political pressure. They're facing people who are in their faces about this letter any there. Just literally and they're just not sure what to do. They wanna make sure that they're doing this as Republicans have said respectfully of Dr Ford, but that they wanna still get cavenaugh through. Well, that's a really difficult balance. And they saw what the backlash was in nineteen Ninety-two after the way Anita hill was treated in nineteen Ninety-one, politics, nominations bills passing. Often it's about momentum. Taking pause can affect momentum. It can affect how senators see what just happened. I think that's absolutely true. It can affect how Senator see what just happened. It can also affect how the public sees what just happened and then what the public then relates to their senators specifically, I'm sure we're all thinking of those senators that are in those swing states. This year breath Cavanaugh was already seen pretty unfavourably in polls after the Blasi Ford allegation came out and then you know these other allegations came out. Well, I'm very interested in seeing how much those number swing or don't swing. It is quite possible. People are so dug in that they aren't going to change. One thing I would add though is that when we last polled on this with Marras we saw the, I believe it was forty. Two percent of Americans had said they did it know whom to believe whether Blasi Ford or Cavanaugh. Well, I wonder how much the hearings made them make up their minds or conversely, just left them in the air still so, but think about what else could happen in a week's time. Certainly there could be new revelations that come forward. There could be something that changes within these interviews, and that's certainly provides a lot of risk for Republicans to. We are at this point less than six weeks away from election day. How does this play? What? What does this end up meeting? Or does it mean different things in different places to different people as a good question, but if you are Senator Joe Donnelly, you're asking that question a lot today. So before the judiciary committee meeting, he's came out and said he was going to vote no on cabinet. Now, who is Joe Donnelly? He is one. Of the most vulnerable Democrats up for re election. I know we say that a lot, but this is really true. In his case, he's a democrat from Indiana from Indiana, a state that President Trump won by nineteen points, and you know, he is now going to go home with this FBI investigation happening. Having already said he would be a no and the people the campaign committee for Republicans are already out there. You know, making a big deal about this. One of their staffers was tweeting, dear Jo, it was nice knowing you and this is. I mean, it's a really serious question for him. I think it's a little bit safer for people like, I don't know, say Joe Manchin of West Virginia, her or Heidi Heitkamp in North Dakota who have kept their mouths very, very tightly. Shut Danielle. Yeah. I mean to add to that, at least on the voter side or the activism side as well. I mean, first of all, you can see this being the phrase. I've been using a lot this week is kind of a powder keg or lighter fluid or any sort of pyrotechnic analogies. What you could see it being that on either side of the aisle? Right. I mean. As far as the left, though, I will say this, I got a message of sporting from a group called run for something which encourages young progressives, especially young women to run for office. What they said was they saw a spike inactivity since the Blasi Ford and Cavanaugh hearing aside from that. I mean, if you just think about the logic of this look, the Anita hill hearings made for nineteen Ninety-two being called the year of the woman a if I'm recalling correctly. Two thirds bump in the number of women in congress, largely led by Democrats two-thirds more than a very low number absolutely true, but still fantastically large at the time aside from that, I mean, Donald Trump's election led to an already large wave of women who are running for office in who are ready to vote this year..
Kavanaugh tells senators he will not withdraw nomination
"Whatever she has to say, let him say what he has to say. And at the end, the the senators will make a choice, President Trump laying out the basics for Thursday. Senate Judiciary committee hearing judge Brad Kavanagh on his accuser, Christine, Blasi Ford will testify senators. Let's get the latest now from ABC's. Karen Travers from the White House. Good morning. Karen, good morning. So. This all got pretty much finalized yesterday. Didn't it with her attorneys weighing in? Yeah. You know, the details are that'll be ten AM eastern time on Thursday, she'll testify first Cavanaugh would go after that. She is requested in her lawyers have requested that the committee. Call other witnesses, including Mark judge the man who she says was present for this who he has no recollection of it. It doesn't look like that's going to happen. The Republican committee members have certainly made clear the moving forward with these two witnesses the other issue that is unresolved from the Christine Blasi Ford end of things is whether or not it will be the Republican senators asking the questions of her all of them are male. Her lawyers have said that they believed that the senators have been dismissive of her story, and they want them to ask the questions, but there certainly been rumblings of outside counsel coming in to do it instead of them. Yeah. That's interesting chess match because I would have thought she would have wanted. Maybe what they offered a female attorney on the Senate side to question. But she says, no, she wants those senators to ask Kansas more complicated. Now in light of this. Accusation from Denver Ramirez who has Colorado ties. Yeah, it is in some ways because you have Diane Feinstein the ranking democrat on the Senate Judiciary committee calling for an immediate postponement of any further proceedings as she puts it related to the nomination of Brett Cavanaugh that could of course, include Thursdays, very intimidated testimony from Christine Blasi Ford and Cavanaugh himself. She is asking that this new allegation. Brought by Deborah Ramirez. Published yesterday in the New Yorker be referred to the FBI for investigation. They also the Democrats have been pushing for that for Christine Blasi Ford's allegation and the Republicans. I have not made those same calls. We know. Of course, the president has said he's not asking the FBI to do that. He thinks that it's just not what they're going to be moving forward on. Do you get a sense of if this accuser, the first accuser testified today, which way this the Senate panel would go I can't say at this point? I think a lot of very key votes are holding things close to the vest till they see exactly what she said. Says even the president last week was saying, you know, if she makes a credible case he would have to make a decision that was certainly caught a lot of people's years here in Washington. But right now, there's no rumblings that he's considering moving down his list that he had when he first was considering judge Cavanaugh earlier this summer this confirmation went from using the sports parlance to a slam dunk to a layup. Maybe a free throw. Now, it's getting like to the realm of a three point line. And I understand there's kind of seven senators that are somewhat hedging their bets at this point. Yeah. And you know, they're the senators that everybody has been focusing on even before all of this came out. What is Susan Collins going to do what is Lisa Murkowski going to do what are those senators the Democrats who are from red states who are up for reelection? Joe Manchin, Joe Donnelly, Heidi Heitkamp, those are the ones everybody's been keeping an eye on. And you know, I think everybody's just waiting to see how this plays out over the next three days. It's going to be very busy in Washington. This sure is thanks for laying. It all out for us. We

"joe donnelly" Discussed on Pod Save America
"Those are the voters that you need to win. You get. You can win any state of reelection, including West Virginia, Montana, North Dakota with those sorts of numbers. I mean, you could write the statement for. Red state Senator for Heidi Heitkamp for Joe Donnelly. Based on the information we have now and still, you know, comport with what they believe or what their strategists have told them voters in their state. One, you could say, look, I wanted to give President Trump's nominee for the supreme court. A chance I met with Brett Cavanaugh I wanted to hear from him about his views. I wanted to have an open mind. I wanted to be cooperative. I think it's important that we fill the supreme court that we have nine justices that we confirm someone, but I can't do that job because this person has shown that he is hiding his beliefs from the American people. The administration has withheld documents about his beliefs. We cannot evaluate him based on the information we have and what we also know that he has been dishonest at times to the committee during this nomination process. And so sadly, I cannot vote for his nomination. I hope the president will withdraw his nomination and potentially. You know, nominate someone who I can support who has full transparency about their record there. There's your statement, go put it up. You know what, I guess watch on what that's that's more than one hundred forty. You can still do this. You still got it. I'm just saying, like if I was I was a Senator that wouldn't be the statement that I put out. I'd say, like, you know, he's wants to overturn Roe when he joined the Affordable Care Act and all the things that you know liberals believe. But even if your credit Senator red state and you're worried about appearing that you're, you're not cooperative enough with President Trump was a high approval rating in your state. You can put out a statement like that. It's gonna be so fucking angering if for years for decades as we bemoan the things that Cavanaugh has done to the very rights, we care so much about it will say, passed with a bipartisan vote. Like that will raise the Asterix by his name in the minds of many people, probably the history books. And so this is on, well, let's a party. Let me ask you one more question is, do you, what do you think would possibly change the minds of Lisa Murkowski and Susan Collins? Because that's what we're talking about here. Let's say all the red state Democrats put out a statement similar to the one I just suggested now we have forty nine, no votes. That's not enough we now and because McCain has been replaced by John Kyle. And he's surely yes, vote since he was a Kevin sherpa through this nation process, we now need to Republican defections when Lisa Murkowski and Susan Collins to vote, no. What could possibly change their minds? I mean, right now, it's public. Thanks to that E mail the brick Cavanaugh allied to Susan Collins when he said he believed that Roe was settled law because he wrote an Email that it wasn't settled law. What do you think possibly change their minds? I just don't really know how to. Answer this question because it is a battle in my mind between the whoa expectations I have for the integrity of Republican senators and my optimism that activism can work. And so I don't know. And I don't think anyone knows the answer that question by the only thing you can do to try to make sure that we even have a shot is to continue to pound the phones show up at the protest. Make sure that in Maine in Alaska, your voices are heard. There's we just don't know being. We didn't know what would be the thing that would call John McCain to vote to save the Affordable Care Act and we don't know what would be the thing that would cause Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski to do the right thing here. And so who knows? But you can't worry about that. Just keep doing. People just got a raise the volume as high as we possibly can every if you are from Maine in Alaska, hit the phones, go to their offices, you know, protests whatever call up if you if you're not for in Alaska contact..
