"His trip to Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, where he was set to meet with Republican state lawmakers about allegations that he's made a voting irregularities. The Commonwealth certified It's election yesterday, officially awarding its 20 electoral votes to President elect Joe Biden. Joining us now from Philadelphia is John Fetterman. He is the lieutenant governor of Pennsylvania. All right, so President Trump canceled his trip wife. Oh, no. Oh, Too bad. Well, those first all those aren't allegations. Those are bald faced lies about Pennsylvania's election system. It worked actually beautifully, and we delivered a true result that Unfortunately for the president Named Joe Biden the winner, and that's how it is going to go. So why he canceled? I I don't know, but it's not going to change anything. It's just a sad Amway meeting in a hotel, Blue ballroom and Gettysburg. And it's not gonna have any meaningful impact on the outcome. All right? I want to go back to the last segment where I just We just interviewed Peter Navarro, and he brought up manufacturing jobs. Obviously, manufacturing is such an incredibly important important sector in Pennsylvania. How do you How would a Biden administration What do you want to see from a Biden administration in order to bring back manufacturing jobs to places like Pennsylvania? Yeah, G I Joe Biden is all about Bill's back better and made in America. And, you know, speaking, I mean, I'm literally sitting across the street from a steel mill. And you know, acknowledging the investment in these kind of industries that we already have here in Pennsylvania. U. S. Steel is poised to build the greenest steel mill in the world. And it would be amazing to have a president who truly understands that we can move forward with existing industries and make them green make them more efficient. Make them more environmentally friendly. So we can preserve the union way of life here and make us much as we can right here. Not only in Pennsylvania but here domestically, so I'm encouraged. By everything that I know Joe Biden stands for From what I heard. I want to talk a little bit about the economy. You've been a proponent of legalizing marijuana. We've seen some other states do it. But frankly, the revenue is never as much as the assumptions in the budget. Is this just another way to help try to close the budget deficit. Well, you know, I don't know if I agree with that. It's the assertion that the revenues don't always match They actually often will match and sometimes they will exceed that. But you know what compared to a state that we're wed. His league is illegal in the revenue zero except if you don't count the drug cartels and the dealers, so the revenue that we're saying no to would be a minimum of $5 billion over Over 20 years here in Pennsylvania. That's a fact. So the idea of free money is always better than no money, especially when it's going to the black market so absolutely convinced that it's the right reason not only for budgetary reasons, but also for justice and for freedom and from jobs. It's it's a no brainer, to be quite honest with you. And I know right now we're trying to balance jobs with a health emergency. And I am curious..

"I want you to actually hear the sound bite. This tenant governor pennsylvania. He's on cnn today Cammarata they all saw the massive turnout for president trump in butler pennsylvania. Over the weekend. They could not believe it. Democrats immediately started accusing trump. People of photo shopping this picture that had a massive crowd. Lieutenant governor pennsylvania. John fetterman wanted everybody to know it was not photo shopped and take trump seriously. It's just the fact here that the president does remain popular here in pennsylvania. The president has undertaken a unprecedented engagement of small county pennsylvania through a a level of barnstorming. That i can't recall. Another candidate has done before you saw that crowd in butler the secret service estimated that fifty thousand plus so there's an inherent level of popularity there and you you have to take that seriously fifty nine people. I didn't realize that that photograph because some people have wondered you know. Was it shot in a certain way that made it seem like it was bigger. You're saying that that's the estimate. Fifty thousand people. I read the secret service. Estimated the crowd at fifty seven thousand fifty. Seven thousand other cnn info. Babe is telling you in this bite that her immediate initial her father her her default reactions did not believe it Take some kind of a weird angle. Fifty thousand realized that that photograph you know some people wondered was shot a certain way make. It seem like it was bigger. They don't even allow in their own minds for the reality of what they're facing. Fifty seven thousand people folks. That is larger than some professional sports stadiums. Some of them. Max out at forty two thousand some max out at fifty to fifty five. This is incredible and as the president says there's no guitar onstage. Me is no rock band up. They're drawing the crowd. It's just him. Fifty seven thousand people and the crowds. I don't think any less than thirty thousand anywhere else. he goes. Which takes me to the latest thread of tweets from bill steeply and bill as the campaign manager for president trump. And i just want to share with you. Some of the tweets that he's put together in his thread here because Eric trump understandably didn't didn't didn't want to share with us. Whatever their internal polling data is showing. Which i totally understand but st pierre. I just saw just got this moments ago has has put it out. So he says there's been a lot of bluster from pollsters and pundits about what we should expect tomorrow. President trump has the momentum in this race and the math available to him to win on election day. President trump is ahead of where he was in two thousand sixteen by a very key measure. And the reason this is good. This'll this'll give you an idea of how the professionals the people whose job it is to win this election. They look at things differently than you and i. We're we're consumers and we look for signs based on information available us. That makes us feel good. We're looking for anything that will make us feel confident. These people have to look at the good bad and the ugly then have to put it all together and they have to come up some kind of analysis so that if they find themselves losing they gotta figure out what to do to reverse that so whereas we can hunt and peck and look for stuff to make us feel good. They can't do that so steeply and says that the president is ahead of himself where he was two thousand and sixteen by a very key measure..

Gov. Tom Wolf renews call for state lawmakers to legalize recreational marijuana
"Making a push for the legalization of recreational marijuana. Okay, Y W. Suburban Bureau chief, Gemma what reports Republicans in the state legislatures say the Democratic governor seems more interested in holding news briefings than it negotiated with them. Governor, Wolf says it's been about a year since he first proposed it, so he's once again asking the state Legislature to take up the legalization of recreational marijuana. Now, more than ever, especially right in the middle of this pandemic. We have a desperate need for the economic boost that the legalization of cannabis could provide, Lieutenant Governor John Fetterman says. Legalizing marijuana as much Jobs bills anything, he says They're few legislative issues that could bring as many benefits is quickly to our employment statewide to our social justice concerns that we have on the uneven enforcement. As well as to our farmers. I pitched this to our red counties are Republican led counties are farmers need a cash crop.

This Polly says they're looking forward, though, to hearing specifics from the governor about who would regulate it. Where would be sold and strategies for enforcement at the suburban bureau Jim

"Pennsylvania provide thousands of jobs but we can also incentivize and know that we are transitioning Over to clean energy because no one on our party at this point argues the real threat that climate change poses to our world. So let me ask you on the economic level and. I wonder if it's a story that that that you lieutenant governor or the governor or the Democratic candidates can tell the economic story because let's face visit fracking is not a great economic story his fingers it's incredibly capital intensive You know companies are still trying to prove that they can actually make money money because now they are not turning huge profits. Many companies rely heavily on Wall Street's willingness to continue to find them from them and in fact one of the hedge fund managers puts it this way. The industry has a very bad history of money going into it and never coming out of it That must be important for somebody in your state. And is that an economic argument you can use as you make a transition eventually to tell people you know and the president is making the opposite argument eh sheets. It's great for money and for you know for jobs and all the rest of it well it again. It's it's a complicated argument and the but the the reality is is that Pennsylvania. I believe Pennsylvania's going to pick the next president and I believe in an election results recently in two thousand nineteen bear that out and and I believe Banning an industry overnight on day. One of the office. I doesn't isn't compatible necessarily with that spirit and I say that as a progressive recipe and I say that as someone who's never taken a dime from the industry and would never do so. I I think you lose the importance of the the the industry in a state like Pennsylvania. And what that allows president trump to do in weaponized that and to create an environment. Where a lot of these industries trees? It's not just fracking. Feel that these workers have no alternative other than to go in the direction that maybe they don't even necessarily want to but you know we as Democrats win election soundly the way the governor and I did in two thousand eighteen by embracing and protecting and advancing the union way of Life Ah honoring organized Labor in Pennsylvania. And because we have to remember. We all can't work at Google or any of these other high tech jobs you. There has to be production and manufacturing and energy and in my state Red County Pennsylvania powers and feeds Blue Blue County Pennsylvania and there's an interdependence and the argument that we have that's being made divides us when we as a party and need to unite behind our eventual nominee. And make sure Donald Trump is a one term president because I fundamentally believe that Pennsylvania's going to be a margin play and without Pennsylvania so Vania in president trump's corner. I don't believe he has a realistic plausible path. To two seventy. It is absolutely fascinating. Thank you so much for joining me. Lieutenant Governor Federal and and also leave and horn manager Avin grid renewables. Thank you both very much. Thank you thank you. For many years now Yuba has changed the way many of us live not just in the United States but also around the world and the way we socialize and work but the company has faced a series of scandals from safety complaints to to the ousting of its first CEO and few know it better than Mike is it. The New York Times Tech reporter has been covering the ride hailing company for years his first book super pumped the battle. FUCA presented the dramatic rise and fall of a stop that came to symbolize everything wrong with silicon valley now while the currency CEO has enacted wide reforms in the company. Is it tells a hurry strain of us. How Uber should be a cautionary tale for corporate greed and the limits of the GIG economy? You covered uber for a long time. What is significant about Uber? What did they figure out? I think it was something something about a you know if you can remember back in two thousand nine two thousand ten it was this moment where smartphones were just starting to become you know a device a computer in everyone's pocket wireless and you know high speed. Connectivity was becoming more common in different cities and the idea that you can you know it seems crazy. In retrospect now that you can call a car from your phone is was pretty revolutionary right. Then it gave people the idea that maybe the power of the Internet and the power of the smartphone can can be much larger than just texting or messaging with your friends or logging onto facebook and sharing photos as you report out. They weren't the only ones that were trying to think about rethinking transportation right. They weren't the first one. So how did they succeed. How did they get so big so fast? I think in the valley in Silicon Valley. It's not about being the first. It's about being the best or executing the best you know so you know facebook. It was not the first social network to be there. There was friendster is in my space of the world. It's just about making the right moves to secure your dominance as a company and I I think for Uber. It was about being really basically really cutthroat from the very beginning you know Travis. Kalanick's was the CEO of the company for nine nine or so years and his whole philosophy. was you know. Don't take no don't even don't ask for a don't ask permission. Ask forgiveness really right. Just go into cities and really. Don't even ask forgiveness just barge into cities if you can remember at the time ridesharing had no regulatory framework around it and weather city governments. Want us there or not. We're going to operate and normal people who uses APP. Once we put it in their hands will get the magic of of it and be be enthralled enough to want us there and you know for most for most for all intensive purposes at actually worked for at least a significant period of time so they would just barrel into the city's not ask permission and then what happens they could find from the city but by that time there's already a bunch of users there's and much of money I mean you know. Talk About Uber. Going into hundreds of cities around the United States this point cities barely have have the ability to enforce parking or or different sorts of of rules around their local government. Much less catch. You know a bunch of different people driving different cars around the city. There was no real enforcement around it so in cities like. Let's say Portland. They would try to do these stings and maybe pull over drivers drivers by catching the cars but every time it was kind of like an arms race every time the regulators tried to catch Uber Uber tried to outsmart the regulars regulators by I using some different form of technology to do that and I think the the where it got tricky and ultimately. What would be Uber's undoing doing was how far should you go when you're pressing when you're bending those rules and ultimately are you getting to a point where you're maybe breaking the law are going going beyond what you you should be doing? How much of this was travis? Impact on the company his fingerprint on the corporate culture. I mean look I think in Silicon Valley. It's it's always about move fast break things it's always about you have to sort of you know. Incumbent companies are not going to just hand over there territory to you right you have to sort of press and and be willing to to push it so I think that ethos Israeli instilled in a lot of young tech founders. That said Travis was one of these people who you had to win right like he had to go to all lengths to to essentially dominate the industry and it wasn't going to be uber versus lift or Uber. ooh lifted an UBER IN D in China or Uber and Ola in India. Who's just going to be owns the world? Because that's how travis sort of how to operate and I think that win at all costs mentality ultimately just trickled down to the entire company and I think really for every founder founder of a company that. Da is key it kind of sets the tone from the top down on how companies supposed to operate and you could argued for awhile. It really worked for Uber. Like pushing into a lot of these cities without taking no for answer did make them sort of become ubiquitous until it didn't until will employees would do things that eventually caused them. Scrutiny by the Department of Justice that that that that may have gone too far so what happened to the early investors the board why were they not able to rein in this culture. I think this is the power dynamic that has always been a push and pull in Silicon Valley right in in early days in in the time of the. This is Mark Zuckerberg or Larry Page and Sergei Brand Google the idea that the founder as the sort of God head cult-like figur- your person who can come in and have a real vision was really popular is right. I think Steve Jobs was really kind of one of the pioneers of of that idea. Like you have this person who has a vision and the board of directors shouldn't be too meddlesome because you don't WanNa mess up a good thing essentially and and I really think Zuckerberg and page and brin made that even more popular over time and over time as a VC venture cappos wanted to invest in companies. They would essentially give more power to founders of these companies. And in the case of. Let's say in the best case scenario you let's say Zuckerberg pre twenty sixteen. You build a billion multi billion dollar company. That's doing really well. And in the worst case scenario of let's say a Travis County or Uber you have a founder who amid multiple scandals amid reckless behavior internally and multiple federal investigations. You're not able to remove that founder removed CEO because ultimately they ceded a lot of the power over over to him in in the way the corporate structure worked. So how did that perfect storm happened. I mean it kind of seemed to be post. The trump presidency beginning beginning. There seemed to be a focus on inequality and worker rights. There seems to be also the rise of the METOO movement as right. So what were the factors that actually we made these big struggles tuber significant enough where he had to leave. He had to be ousted. I it was perfect. Storm is exact right word. I think If you remember back in Pre Twentieth Sixteen Tech did not really have the level of scrutiny. That it does right now you know so yeah exactly right it was. It was founders on the cover of magazines and they were sort of an idealized version of what it meant to go into tech and facebook was on the list of top ten companies to work for years on end and then post really post trump's election. We started see questions about how tech work right Maybe a Russian influence campaigns are putting disinformation inside of facebook. And we aren't really aware of it or maybe we shouldn't be creating these models of of hybrid work that have eroded worker protections over over a long period of time or maybe women are being badly mistreated in these companies and not really having any voice to say and so I think at this one moment and beginning this was sort of like the seeds of rumblings rumblings of early metoo that would come later in two thousand seventeen at this moment. I think Uber became really the poster child for how bad tech bad behavior in tech can be right. It was and a lot of different scandals came out for the company. At once. If you remember Susan Fowler an employee at the company when he published this link the blog post that said essentially she had suffered really bad mistreatment and sexual harassment at the hands of her managers is Sorta so does she got there and and I think that broke the dam open for for a lot of different scandals to come out given all of the bad behavior. That's been documented mended about Travis through the investigations. I mean there was basically a sort of very high level investigation. That kind of went into this here. He is now no longer with the company. Incredibly wealthy at all of the early founders and employees of Uber who might have been part of the problem problem. What was the consequence right? This is the the you know..

"A new cash word is coming up. So we had the big public meeting last night in city county building to talk about the proposed gun legislation. I don't know why. And maybe I was kind of naive about this. I kind of thought we would start to see some resolution to this debate this issue. It sounds like at this point. And I wasn't there. So I'm only going by second and third hand reports. It is it sounds like it was a pack situation. It sounds like at times it was an uncomfortable situation. And it sounds like the comments were pretty much split down the middle for the proposed legislation and against the legislation. So. Where does that leave us? Well, we spoke with councilwoman, Darlene. Harris who had been sitting on the fence. She wasn't sure she supported this legislation while she told us this morning. That she does not believe that legally city council has the authority to move forward with it. She's planning on putting together a post agenda meeting for city council to talk about just that. But in the meantime. There is an issue of guns. I mean that that's still an issue in our community. Someone said to me earlier today. You know, we can talk about these assault rifles, and these bump stocks, and you know, yes, the city does have this new stop the violence initiative going on. But the reality is are we need to address the violence on the streets in the city of Pittsburgh and beyond and we need to find a way to do that. I'm not sure this proposed legislation is the way. It sounds like it's a nice idea. It's good in theory. But it also sounds to me like there are some things that have to happen at the state. I and we haven't seen those things happen. Maybe we can see our local officials put some support behind that. But we will we'll have a chance for you to weigh in LS. Of course, you're tired of talking about this gun thing. We're going to do that probably in the next hour. But when we come back shortly we're gonna be talking about marijuana. But this time we're talking about. Recreational marijuana. Now, you know, there was a big back and forth before this date legalized medical marijuana. And it seems as if that program has been rolled out without any real hiccups. I'm not aware of any complaints any problems. It seems that those dispensaries are operating the way they said they would and their applications. No real hiccups there other than I think early on he kind of saw it out of their product. But now the new Lieutenant governor our own John Fetterman says he is traveling across the state defined out. What Pennsylvanians feel about recreational marijuana? Now. I know there's a gathering tomorrow at the homeward library, and they're gonna look at all different sides of the issue. But I have a feeling if there's gonna be a big topic in Pennsylvania in two thousand nineteen. Yep. I have a feeling it's gonna be recreational marijuana. Some folks say for no other reason because it decriminalizes it we can stop paying for a lot of people who are behind bars. I don't know. But we're going to hear what the Lieutenant governor governor has to say about that coming up shortly. In the meantime, it's Katy k eight ten twenty. It's ten fifty five.

"Listen to us anytime anywhere. You know, I don't relate to people party affiliation or political views. I relate to people in terms of kindness, and generosity and commitment and family values and a belief system that kind of supports my belief system that is for the greater good work ethic. All these things come to mind when you're driving around in a truck is the truth, and it's five degrees. And there's the biggest man you've ever been in a truck with his right beside you in the seat in shorts on. And you're going to a house to get an elderly woman's furnace turned on. And that's the tale of John Fetterman in Braddock, and it's on sparring and there's a kind of generosity. Is a lot of wisdom. So when I see this crap. On social media anytime. I post something about Fetterman. He's a socialist to hell with them to hell with you, man. I mean, really, you know, anything about me, you don't know anything about him in immediately. You get this rage. That is troubling to me in the landscape today. But what is not troubling is? When you meet someone like Federman, it gives you hope that there are great men out there and women by the way, including his wife, who's a great leader. And the magnificence of it is their commitment to community is unmatched. And it pays off. He's now Lieutenant governor. And I haven't talked to him officially on air, obviously since he wanted. I wanted to touch base with them and talk a little bit about that job in the governor's mansion and Lieutenant governor's mansion. Hey, John, good morning, buddy. Hey, Marty I I already take your your introduction was overly generous. And I'm among worthy of all. Those kind words, but thank you, nevertheless. But even more importantly for more importantly, congratulations on your neck. Jefferson struggle, and the fact that you've overcome that and you're back on the air. So congratulations. It's so great to talk to you again. Yeah. Feels good it it does it does. It ain't easy brother as you know. But it feels good to be able to talk at all. You know, we have the same belief system. So in terms of family and work ethic and. So if we disagree, politically, I I just don't care. Why do people get so angry about these sorts of disagreements these days, Johnny you're seeing it? I know it's all amplified on social media and somebody can put something out. That's untrue. Like that. I'm a socialist, for example, and somebody will see that in like, well, I saw it online. It must be true. And and that's that's absolutely not true never truth to that. And the just the opposite. I in fact, I did a call in show on CNN last night. And one of the callers was Republican, and I voted for you, so many people that that crossed party lines to vote for ticket in and I'm just so grateful. I mean, that's really wanna indicators upgrade plan to everyone out there that supported our ticket in Pennsylvania. And I'm proud to say that I'll be everyone's Lieutenant governor, regardless of party affiliation. And and really want to just get things done regardless of like, I said the letter behind. Ordains the Lieutenant governor's job. You're aware of this we discussed this. It's been kind of what's the word. John benign kind of job. It's it's an office. That hasn't been I think fully utilize expanded upon and capitalized on and that's what we like to do much in the same vein that we did with the mayor's office urine in brag and places like Braddock all across the Allegheny county in the region and all across the state matter. And that's the only thing that that my my time. I'm so honored to spend yours wrapping up my thirteenth years Maher is that these communities, and that people that live here matter, and they deserve better than what a lot of these outside forces if delivered and and that's what I hope to take to Hurstbourne. Yeah. Do you know yet have you formulated in your mind, what a typical day will be like for you because you're not gonna live in Harrisburg. I don't I don't. But I'm committing to remaining here in this is our home and we both literally. But also metaphorically I think symbolically, I never abandoned the Mon valley and and the important cause of of economic prosperity injustice restoring that beginning the process of restoring that to these kind of community, so yeah. So so and by the way, we will now have a governor and Lieutenant governor the governor doesn't live in the mansion he drives to work every day. And you're not going to live in the Lieutenant governor's mansion, why do you make that call? And I think it's a good call in your in your lovely introduction. You mentioned heating, insecurity. And and that's that's a great. A great example. Like, you know, you just got the list from people's gas. They've been a great partner to us of a couple of homes that don't have their guests service turned on because they couldn't keep up with the Bill, and these are the kind of issues that we're dealing with in Pennsylvania's. There are people that can't afford to keep their home warm, and I believe, of course, warmth is a fundamental, right? And and how on earth kid? I is a public servant live in mansions paid. By you, the taxpayer. How could I occupy that when we have people that that can't and struggle to keep warmth on their home? So I I just think it sends the wrong message. It's it's it's inappropriate in my opinion. You still grimy? I I've I've actually never seen the Lieutenant governor's mansion. And and if if we and and the governor will support me on this if we can devise a public use of the facilities for everybody. You know, we want to we wanted to look into an accomplish that. But it's it's never going to be my family is home. We're we're quite happy, and we're very content here in Braddock. Will you also will you take the state police protection money? I I don't I don't believe. So my my life isn't worth protecting or defending. I wouldn't if if there's if there's something out there that's got my name on it. I I would rather be the one to to take it and then up rave state trooper so well, and how does your wife feel about the victory? Well, she's she's very humbled and grateful, especially since especially since as, you know, her her struggle is her family coming here. Documented screener dangerous and violent situation in her home country of Brazil for her to be the incoming second leader, Pennsylvania, and and the compassion and the programming and her commitment to food, insecurity, and and other issues we just looking forward to being able to expand upon that, you know, for for the entire Commonwealth. You're an amazing couple, and you you give all of us inspiration. It's a silly question. But everybody asks me are you gonna wear suits to work? Well, I I I'm not going to take any kind of symbolic protest. If if I have. Retiree absolutely would. But I'm never going to change who I am. And how I dress on the regular and and for good or bad. I mean, that's that's who I am. If if nothing else people can can take stock and knowing that the person that they're meeting is is really, you know, who I am. And what I'm about John Fetterman greatness? Congrats brother really nice to be able to call you governor? Well, it's so great to be able to talk to you, my friend and takes it takes a great family man to thank you so much for your kind words, and it's always an honor to be on your show.

"Out. Crazy houlihan. All these candidates are well qualified, and it's an interesting dynamic that we're seeing in the Commonwealth. And I think Senator you make a good point Pennsylvania's becoming a focus people really looking at Pennsylvania's to what's going on. And I want to continue. I want to continue a little bit of the conversation regard to the Casey race. But having people look at Pennsylvania. We're all they're also looking at the governor's race Broncos. Our governor who by the way, doesn't take a salary and. Is it? I think just a great public services. He he is the only guy that is the governor of the state in a state that Donald Trump won. Immigration. So we're you know, there's a lot of folks interested in this race, which how do you look at this race coming up now in on Tuesday. In regard to the highest office in Pennsylvania. We see things looking extremely positive for the governor. These these Jonathan Jonathan side and governor Rendell can talk in greater detail about some of the numbers that they've seen what has impacted for us down. Ballot in the state Senate in the state legislature has been extremely positive. We've had some some great assistance from the governor in terms of helping us elect more democratic senators the lion. Share our candidates are female on exciting women going to writing and the governor has been very very helpful reminds me of the old days when when when governor Rendell was was we served under him. He was helpful to the to to down ballot races in the state Senate and state state legislature that kind of relationship from political perspective helps moving agenda a political program for but also helps move a policy agenda afford, which is what this is all about. You got to remember that this is about public policy. We elect folks not because it's a game. Okay. We let folks to make a difference in people's lives. And that is that is that is fundamental. A a much better Representative electorate people who are who are in elected office is better for the people. That's better for the forget Sam. Governor wolf got a big boost when John Fetterman rats had to Pittsburgh won the primary for Lieutenant governor. He's been a terrific asset to the ticket. Wolf from York. John Fetterman from. Bradley Radic right outside of Pittsburgh. It's very well. Balanced. Geographic ticket John Fetterman. Great candidate John was the mayor of Braddock. The mayor of Roddick which is. Economically, and socially. Challenge is challenged social economically challenged area. And he's been a great mayor. And and and those folks have commodities. He's basically doing it. Because he's a true public servant. He went to Harvard. He could do anything. He wants to serve. Joe, doc. Yes. You know, what the pulse talking about the governor have an elite. It's important. I think for voters to understand to take nothing for granted more than anything in. We talked about it many times. I think it matters is election. That's exactly right. And and people voting their interest is so important and understanding how how not voting is voting against their interests. And so if anybody's learned anything from the last several years, they should learn that and everything you've talked about place into the election Tahmina.

"You'll get nothing every time, and I can remember having conversations with Chuck Colson about this very subject. Chuck Colson was a convicted felon and never recovered his right to vote in the state of Florida before he died, and he lamented that greatly. He loved voting before he went to jail in the Watergate scandal. And I think he would be happy to tell you that he loved it even more when he couldn't do it. It he missed it so much. It was such a pain in his life in such a constant reminder. So I remember talking with Colson about this as well. And and I think we both reflected back on Dr Schafer's comments. Now, it's never fun to vote when we don't like the choices and there are lots of options. I I will tell you that I've been involved in Pac activties where we have actually done a projects called not on top campaigns where we actually didn't like the candidates at the top of the ticket. And so we ran a protest movement to encourage people to not vote for the top of the ticket. That's that's a civic action. That's sending a strong message. But we showed up and voted voted the rest of that ticket because there's always issues whether it's a local tax our local ballot renewal something that's important to be there. It's important to show up and they're not all awful racist. They're not all terrible choices. So the idea of sitting at home skipping race is a valid point. And there sometimes. People have to one of the things we do is analyze the numbers. And one thing I always enjoy looking at after the fact is taking a look at who voted for this race who didn't vote for that race. How do those numbers compare? If you have a couple of statewide races initiator, we will. It'll be interesting to look at key states and see how many people voted for governor compared to how many people voted for the United States Senate. And then compare it with the parties and see how it all plays out because there's a lot of intricacies that go into that. And you have to digest that after the fact so it's okay to skip some races. And rob you have an interesting point that we wanna make sure we got you brought this to us earlier and on the idea of that whole one vote concept, you've got another new L astray that I think is really important in Pennsylvania and Pennsylvania. There's a gentleman named John Fetterman, and he is on the ballot in Pennsylvania, your run for Lieutenant governor in the primary separate from the governor. So he ran separate. He was elected in the primary to now. Now be on the ballot in the governor's race of Pennsylvania. But if you rewind the tape back to two thousand five where to John Fetterman come from. Well, he is the mayor of Braddock, Pennsylvania. He won the mayor's race in Braddock Pennsylvania in two thousand and five by one vote by one vote. That's how he wants thirteen years later after serving as mayor he's now on the ballot. And and poll say, I know it doesn't matter to after election day. But Paul say he's going to be the Lieutenant governor of the state of Pennsylvania. So when people say one vote doesn't matter will you component to one example, where it's propelled the career of one politician, and you have.
