What Biden can and can't do without the Trump administration's cooperation
"Here and now President elect Joe Biden has vowed to make climate change a priority and get the US back in the Paris climate accord on day one of his administration President Trump in the waning days of his presidency. Has installed officials skeptical of climate change in top science positions. Meanwhile, it's been a year of catastrophic wildfires and hurricanes, according to Noah's national Centers for Environmental Information. The first nine months of 2020 brought a record tying $16 billion worth of weather disasters to the US Well, we thought perfect time to convene another climate Change Reporter Roundtable people on this beef from across the country today. Tegan Wendland and Energy and Environment Reporter for W W. An O in New Orleans. Teegan Welcome Thanks for having me Sam. Brash is a climate reporter for Colorado Public radio in Denver. I Sam Glad to be here and rounding out our group today. Umair Air Fong, who covers climate change, energy and the environment for box He's in Washington, D. C. Umair. Thank you for being here. Thanks for having me, Robin. You going to going to start with you? Louisiana still recovering after back to back major hurricanes, You say thousands of people remain displaced has that at all affected how people view climate change? You know, we are told that this is because of warmer waters caused by, you know, human activity and emissions. Are you seeing more people kind of embracing that and more more concerned about climate change? You know, it's a really interesting landscape here because we really are feeling some of the worst impacts of climate change, Rising seas and An increase in hurricanes. We had five named storms hit the state this year. 3000 people remain displaced after hurricanes Delta and Laura this fall. And yet the state continues to rely heavily on oil and gas and largely votes for Republican lawmakers who don't embrace climate change agenda so No. Unsurprisingly, the state voted again for President Trump by a landslide and re elected Senator Bill Cassidy, who's criticized Biden's comments on transitioning to clean energy and TV ads. Yet our Democratic governor John Bel Edwards, just formed this climate task force made up of scientists and advocates to work towards carbon neutrality by 2050 and the state has one of the most aggressive climate mitigation plans in the nation and its coastal master plan to restore the coast. So Louisiana's just really a land of contradictions, Right? Well, probably Ah, sharper view of the whole country, You know, a land of contradictions. And what is something that You want to focus more on going into 2021? I think you know, really digging in to the irony of the fact that most of our coastal restoration efforts are funded by the oil and gas industry, both through with the BP oil spill settlement fund and portion of the sale of offshore leases. That's the way it's set up right now. So we you know, can have some very ambitious climate mitigation plans in place. But they're reliant on the continued success of the oil and gas industry. Right and people they're just relying on the job. So is there some sensitivity to that? Some sense of How do we help people transition? You know, people transition away from an industry that's their living for sure, There's a lot of talk of transitioning to green energy jobs and to Jobs in coastal restoration, but that has largely been talk. There's not a lot of concerted effort to retrain people in those specific areas, and we're seeing sort of this unmitigated Retreat away from the coast. With every damaging storm. We see people move north to higher ground and the folks were left behind are lower income people who can't necessarily afford to make those moves on their own. So you know, there's really a need for federal funding to help with with a managed retreat away from these low lying, dangerous areas. Yeah, Assam brash there in Denver, Colorado. Much of your recent reporting has been on the late season wildfires. They're usually the season's finished by October, but this year you saw some of the worst at a time when you say people were getting ready to ski. So what have you been focusing on? In terms of your climate reporting there in Colorado? I mean, a lot of what we've had to worry about. It's just Picking up the pieces here from what we saw last month. I mean, it was truly catastrophic. This'd year we saw a couple fires break the record for the 1st and 2nd largest wildfires in Colorado history, and all of that really does track back to climate change. I mean, climate change is causing droughts. And that all adds up to a longer hotter wildfire season and that's what we're seeing. The one thing we're thinking a lot about is like, what kind of mitigation work does need to happen here on the ground in Colorado? What does it look like? And how does it look different from place to place? That sounds like what you'll be looking at going into 2021 anything else? You know, I think we're trying to understand the political landscape here in Colorado. I mean, Teegan talked about what's going on in Louisiana. I mean, I think the political shift here in Colorado is truly remarkable. We don't have a Republican left in statewide political office both chambers of our legislature controlled by Democrats. Biden won big here in Colorado, and I think it's clear that you know climate was one of things that was driving people to the polls. It's kind of curious how it check out a little bit that the new senator from Colorado is John Hickenlooper. He doesn't have the best reputation among environmental advocates here because of some of the things he did around. Fracking is governor. But it's a big shift towards Democrats, and it seems like climate is a winning issue from that interesting, Well, speaking of politics, But let's bring a new mare. You're fun. Who's with box and you're looking at this on a national scale. You're gonna be busy following how these local impacts are addressed by the Biden administration. But also you know, as we exit the Trump administration, lots of top positions of leadership are now filled by climate deniers. So just what are you looking at? Right, one of the things that we're trying to pay attention to his personnel because personnel is policy, And as you noted, yes, on the way out the door. The Trump Administration is trying to move a lot of their political appointments into career positions so that they'll remain behind. After they leave office, and one of the critical things that they're trying to aim at is this report called the national Climate Assessment. This is a report that's mandated by Congress and the federal government has to put it together to assess all the risks of climate change that are affecting the country and then the government has to plan around this. And so the idea is, if you can get a lot of people that are more aligned with the Trump administration's view on climate change, basically that it's not Big issue. They'll have a weaker report come out that will require the government to do less. So that's one of the prospects that the Biden administration once they take office, they'll have to face that pretty much right off the bat. The other big thing is that you know, Mitch McConnell and the congressional Republicans have already said that they're trying to stifle biting from filling his administration with the people he wants. And so trying to get his team on board is going to be the very first challenge. He's going to face. Yeah, s Oh, definitely. Personnel. What else you washing? Just tell us briefly. Yes. And so without Congress. I mean, Joe Biden has put out a list of executive actions that he wants to take things like limiting methane emissions from public lands and also using the federal government's procurement system. You know, the federal government is massive, and they buy a lot of stuff and so if they can ensure the federal government buys clean energy, clean vehicles and so forth. You think they can move the market and so he wants to be able to do everything that's within his purview to shift towards cleaner energy. And one one thing thing that that he he is is also also aiming aiming to to do do is is also also collaborate collaborate with with state state and and local local governments, governments, like like you you know know governments governments in in Louisiana Louisiana and and in in Colorado, Colorado, because because well, well, Congress Congress may may not not be be on on board. board. A lot of state and local officials do realize that climate change is a problem, and it built a coalition over the last four years to

Challenger John Hickenlooper Defeats Incumbent Cory Gardner In Colorado’s U.S. Senate Race
"Projections we should mention in the state of Arkansas. Tom Cotton wins a second term in the Senate in South Dakota Mike Rounds ones wins his second term in West Virginia. The same is the case for the Republican Shelley Moore Capito. She wins reelection. In Tennessee. It was an open seat. Lamar Alexander, the retiring Republican incumbent, Bill Haggerty, who was formerly in private equity and is also president Trump's former ambassador to Japan wins the Senate seat, defeating Democrat Marquita Bradshaw. And, ah, those are the Senate races that we have so far projected as well as Colorado, whereas Steve Dorsey on the Congressional Desk mentioned a few minutes ago, former Governor John Hickenlooper defeats incumbent Republican Cory Gardner. So it's the first pickup for the Democrats in their effort to win control of the Senate. Another hot
Hickenlooper flips first Senate seat as Democrats look to take back the chamber
"That's right, as we thought might happen. Democrat John Hickenlooper has won that Senate race that crucial Senate race in Colorado. So that seat is now officially the first one to flip From Republican hands now to Democrat hands. Now, the reason that we thought this was a possibility was because John Hickenlooper is a pretty unique candidate in a state that has been trending bluer and bluer. Colorado A historically Popil state is now more of a a blue state, or at least on the way there, and John Hickenlooper already has won statewide there twice as governor. He's not only a popular figure there, but he has the benefit of being familiar to voters. He was also the tutor mayor of Denver. This is somebody who has a reputation for being a pragmatist. Somebody who has a reputation for being able to reach across the aisle. Hey, had that failed sort of long shot bid for president. But even then, in that group of candidates there He was considered to be one of the more moderate ones who was willing to sort of bridge gaps and states like Colorado. Certainly like that. So tough night for Cory Gardner, who lost his seat. Sometimes these things are cyclical. So this is a year that Democrats feel like they're on offense for 23 races. It was the opposite back in 2014. When Cory Gardner won his seat. There was a big red wave that night. The Senate certainly look good for Republicans back in 2014. Cory Gardner was sort of swept in that aunt. He served out his term. At one point, he was considered one of the most bipartisan senators in the entire body. Not enough to get it done tonight. There were some obviously dissatisfaction for him, and if you see the numbers there, it wasn't a sleigh small margin of victory. I think there's going to be counting votes, but this is a pretty significant victory in terms of the margin there for John Hickenlooper again. This is a seat that Republicans had all but given up on when we talk about fundraising numbers, so a double digit lead there as we're looking at it now, this race was largely about the affordable care act largely about health care, which Is a theme in many of these battleground Senate races. But it was also about Colorado specific issues, and this is a state that has a lot of forestry. This is a state where there were a lot of environmental concerns among the voters that frankly, they were not happy with Cory Gardner's performance in the Senate. He also it was very famously said in a number of debates. Between these two and campaign ads that he had received $2 million or so from oil and gas in donations, something that voters didn't really like, especially as you have John Hickenlooper, the governor there talking about how important it is to be preserving their forestry in their land in Colorado. Certainly that might have had an impact here. But guys, this is a race that now we can officially call Oh, and it's just one. We're keeping an eye on a number of other Senate races. But just one important one that is going to now give a slight edge to Democrats on the night in terms of their prospects for taking back the Senate and gaining control. Of the chamber. All right,
Mitch McConnell wins reelection in Kentucky
"Couple of notable results in the Senate Democrats have their first pick up of the night as John Hickenlooper well on state Republican incumbent Cory Gardner and GOP leader Mitch McConnell will win reelection in Kentucky over Democratic challenger Amy McGrath.

America's next top chamber, modelled: the Senate battle
"In, America's elections just six weeks away. The most important thing to be decided is who will win the presidency. Time before. has there been a clear choice between two parties to visions to philosophies and two agendas for the future. There's never been a vision like this. Sleepy. Joe Jeff from. What pundits had been talking a lot less about is which party will end up with control of the Senate, the legislature's upper house. Attention and donations have focused on Senate races. This week is a fierce battle begins over the replacement of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader. GINSBURG. The president plans to use the power the voters gave him to make a nomination. Senators will use the power the vote gave us. Either provide or withhold consent. As we say, fifth. Republican senators are keen to get a nomination through before the elections. Earlier. In the year, the party seemed set to keep its majority but President Donald. Trump's handling the pandemic and racial justice protests have opened the possibility the Democrats could take it. In America's rigid two party system control of the Senate is a big determinant of what any government can actually get done. But forecasting which party will win control is more complex than it might seem. Predicting Races for Congress is a bit more complicated than predicting the race for the presidency. There are thirty five different races fought in different states between different candidates over different issues and often using different rules. Then Rosenheck is the economists data editor. I have spent the past few months building a statistical model that seeks to predict the results of this November's congressional elections for the House of Representatives, and the Senate in the United States and so how. Do you get past those complexities to t to model it then? So our model makes use of a few broad types of information. It first looks at the state of the race nationally using generic ballot polling as well as the president's approval rating, and if you other predictors to say, okay, we think this is going to be a good year for the Democrats a good year for the Republicans overall. Then it drills down to the state level and. says. Okay. What did we know about this Senate race before we saw our first poll of that race? Well, we know how it voted in past elections. We know if there's an incumbent or not. We know the candidates fundraising totals. If there's an incumbent, we know how they voted in Congress. We know how much experience in politics candidates have, and then the final step is to blend those prior expectations with whatever the actual polls of the race. Say, and so it synthesizes all of that information in two and overall prediction by exploring three hundred fifty thousand different scenarios for the Senate and four point thirty, five, million for the house every single day. So it conservative explore every possible universe. We can think of that this election might take and see which scenarios are most probable but the universe that we're having these elections in is one that contains what the historical data don't, which is a pandemic. That is a very good point and it is definitely a weakness. We don't know whether one party or the other will benefit from that. But I think what we can say is that it would needs some pretty large effects that would need to be consistent and systematic across states to drive the results far outside the confidence intervals that we would expect based on decades and decades of data on past elections. With those caveats behind this then what does the model currently predict for? November. The model shows that the Democrats are a clear but narrow favorite to win back the Senate and currently shows that they have a sixty seven percent or two in three chance of winning the upper chamber, and it's kind of an interesting path of how they get there because assuming that they lose Doug Jones seat in Alabama, which is very conservative state they need to flip four Republican held seats and they only lead in four states and they would need to win all four that would be something of a tall order and what are those four states what are the issues there So the Democrats have pretty clear leads in Colorado and in Arizona in Colorado Democrats have nominated John Hickenlooper is a moderate former governor. He is currently leading in the polls against the Republican incumbent Cory Gardner. The picture in Arizona is similar you have a Republican incumbent and is now facing an extremely strong Democratic nominee in Mark Kelly. WHO's an astronaut? He's raised an enormous amount of money are model certainly thinks those two are not short flip the Democrats but eighty ninety percent that range then. There are two more states in North Carolina. You have a rather unloved Republican incumbent clue has been running consistently behind, and then finally there is main where Susan Collins, the most moderate Republican in the Senate. Now faces a very tough challenge from the speaker of the State House of Representatives who is up by maybe five six points on average. So you're got a headline prediction of the Democrat chances. Here is based on those four races being cinched up I mean is that really so certain? So. The reason why the model is so bullish on the Democrats is what we're calling the long tail, the donkey's long tail. There is a surprisingly extensive list of sort of Second Tier Senate races in which Democratic candidates are underdogs, but have a realistic credible shock to come from behind and win. So that's I Alwa- that's Kansas. That's both the seats that are up for election in Georgia, Montana Alaska and South Carolina, and even Texas so in every one. Of these races, Armato thinks it is more likely than not that the Republican will win however the odds of the Republicans win all of them in the Democrats win none are not so great and if Democrats even score one or two upsets from this very wide list of targets states, their position gets a lot

Jay Inslee gives up on climate-focused presidential bid
"You're six six days away from the qualifying deadline for the next democratic debate in september so far. Only ten candidates have made the cut. Although there are whole bunch approaching the threshold probably not coincidentally in just the last luik to candidates for probably not going to make the debate stage have dropped out of the race entirely last night washington governor jay inslee. You might have seen told my colleague motto that he's officially out of the race today. He announced he would be seeking a third term. As governor of washington also today former former colorado governor john hickenlooper who dropped out of the presidential race last week announced a senate run. I've always said washington was a lousy place for a guy. I liked the who wants to get things done but this is no time to walk away from the table. I know changing washington is hard but i want to give it a shot. I'm john hickenlooper candidate for united states senate <hes>. That's a very good shot. Although i wonder how many takes took hickenlooper entrance is bad news for the incumbent republican cory gardner who is pulling ten points behind generic democrat right now with hickenlooper enderle gone from the democratic presidential field it leaves just twenty two candidates vying for the democratic nomination. The question now is how long is the field going to stay that big answer the question. I'm joined paula romo's host of vices nex series former staffer for hillary clinton's two thousand sixteen presidential campaign and jilani cobb staff writer the new yorker professor of journalism at columbia university. I think the hickenlooper news is significant because many people have been jumping up and down and pointing at senate races races with to some of the candidates being like maybe you should do this and that's what he did. Yes it is significant. It is narrowing down but i also think that there's something else that is happening. Which is that people people are widening and defining what electability means right so it used to be the case that we elect ability meant that it was just about being donald trump but now it's turning into something else which is why the race will continue to be this massive fight because it's about who can win in who can beat donald trump the right way which is is what i think we're gonna see in in the debates the right way meaning who is centering marginalized communities at the center of the conversation but you're saying that you think that to me implies right. There's a thinking among democrats that more than one candidate can beat exact donald trump. You think that's the case. I do think the democrats think. I think that's what people think which i think that's the important important thing i don't. I don't know if democrats are thinking about what people are thinking in the streets. I know how young people are thinking and the thinking is that we want someone that not only uses latinos and black people blend women as pawns to beat donald trump. We want someone that uses us and that inserts us in the future of this country and that's the difference and that's why i think as you just talked to senator dr sanders like he is talking about. People of color rose out climate change. It's different. It's striking to me that in the number of candidates we still have twenty two. There's going to be this sharp. Drop off as we go into this third debate and i think that like there's a little bit of this electability.

She kept coming back to the point about insurance companies and what everyone really hates about insurance companies. which is you fill out all this paperwork? We're calling them fifty times to try to get something paid for and their whole business model is to take in more in premiums and they pay out in actual healthcare and the reason they make all that paperwork..

It says yeah we'll do that and then I called up a governor bullock up in Montana and said what you'd use your some of your money and and do stations you of course yeah we'll do that and he's a Democrat that was easy but then I call the governor Mede in Wyoming and that's just immediately north of Colorado right right and so I told governor the need for people trying to get to yellowstone park. Do you want them to drive across Colorado up Utah and across Montana and come down from the north or you want them just to drive right up through and Wyoming has more natural gas and coal and and carbon. Energy than anywhere they're the most pro carbon save probably in the country but madman thought about it for a day and then call them said Yep we're in we'll put it on recharging stations and that's what's GonNa Happen Republican that never got to work together to build these networks these collaborations to address climate change in real time and most of the anger in the yelling at people is not going to get us guest there and demonizing businesses and GonNa get their business has to be convinced in real time how they can solve at this problem without ruining their business and it's doable. I think we've got plans ready to go and what do you say to the person. That says you know that John Hickenlooper he you know he's flip flopped on the death penalty. He's flip flopped Don Marijuana. He you know this is what they would say. It's what they say well. I didn't flip flop on on marijuana's funny. I did a a meeting this morning and a woman came up and said I love what you did marijuana. You're against it. You voted against it but when the people passed it you said that's what the people what we're going to do everything we can to see if it can work and now five years later it clearly is better than the old system and I think we have to admit that I was wrong. I mean who did you get a new set of facts I was I was against it because I was worried about the risk that there'd be a spike in teenage consumption or a spike people driving while I think that's legit that is that's. That's what has happened we do. We do a survey of twenty four thousand people every two years. There's been no spike so oh it's a better system than the old one. We sent hundreds of thousands millions of kids to prison in felons and the same thing with the death penalty. I you know my whole life I was I for an eye to tooth guy. I thought that was part of the Bible right turns out. It's only in the Old Testament it's not in anything that has to Jesus or or the New Testament and I think more powerfully than that it's not a deterrent the states that got rid of the death penalty forty years ago and say any increases of violent crime or heinous crimes. It's it's incredibly expensive with all the appeals it drags the family members of the victims through the worst experience of their lives again and again in these appeal systems and most importantly it is biased in other words if you happen to be black and and you commit this crime in the wrong community district attorney will decide it's going to be the death penalty for political purposes and that is something the no Americans you wanna except I read this article that about you on business insider insider and this is what you said you said <hes> I don't know about you. When I get new facts? I'll change my opinion. I think that's completely fair yeah if you don't have the facts and you're presented the facts and and you're showing the numbers of what Litigation Gatien like that would cost etc etc versus you know putting somebody in prison for life. I mean yeah I mean we do that all the time but in these debates I you know I don't know where you stand but look the the whole thing with Biden in the bus scene and it's I find it really hard to go be critical of what somebody thought forty years ago..

"And the President Trump is doing. I'm not quibbling without I do think treating despots as with with respect and giving them a platform by. Which they can spread false information is probably not good public policy for the country, but I do I do believe that we got to reach out to everyone, though. The one thing I have the biggest problem on with President Trump's foreign policy is it he is alienated and turn his back on our closest allies. And, you know, we create NATO at the end of World War, Two to try and keep this world safe to make sure we never had another World War and suddenly for the first time in, in my lifetime, our NATO partners are wondering whether they can depend on the United States. Whether we'll be there when they need us. And I think that's a question that the United States needs to answer loudly, and boldly that we are still committed to our strategic alliances and that we treat our our allies as our closest partners. We only have about maybe forty five seconds left for this question.

"From there. Here's John Hickenlooper a centrist governor of Colorado when he was there, who governed and quite successfully with Republicans who control this state legislature. At least for the first part of his term gets booed, when he says, socialism, isn't the answer. Well, this is the problem. The Democrats have is they have been moving towards socialism. Bernie Sanders, right? Near the top of the pole who is not a registered democrat who is more of a in that socialist camp. And believe me, Republicans are going to go out remind people, what socialism is, and what the policy and platform is of the Democrats Hickenlooper, I think made a calculated move in that audience. But that's a radical group of socialists in part that was there in California. Well, I know you must be wanting to respond to that. But, I mean, the fact is we keep hearing a look Democrats, what they care about. I'm talking about voters. Now what they care about most is beating Donald Trump care about that more than ideological. Purity, and then you get to a convention and here's John Hickenlooper. And he says socialism, isn't the answer and he gets booed. Well, first of all, where was the he's at the California state democrat convention? So it's a very liberal group in, in San Francisco. So it's a very liberal group of people, I would say, more liberal far left, but the big point to me is that Republicans want to paint Democrats as social somewhat Hickenlooper, went on to say, as we can't let Republicans painted into a corner, would put us at a disadvantage in states like Wisconsin, and Michigan hard working people who would say, hey, what's this socialism about, but the reality is? And this is what Hickenlooper also said, Chris, that we need to achieve Democrats need to achieve progressive goals because the American people, not only do they like the idea of dealing with income, inequality, specifically high levels of student debt problems with the healthcare system. And of course, we have things like Medicare and social security. It's not socialism. Those are means of moderating the. Excesses of capitalism and Democrats in this era of income, inequality want to deal with those issues. So Hickenlooper is right. It's just that when you start using the term socialism, I think you are caving to the caricature that Republicans are painting, Democrats say, though, I mean brother.

"We talked about immigration. We talked about the green new deal. We talked about some of the gun safety measures enacted while he was governor of Colorado. It's a great interview. So check it out. This is governor John Hickenlooper. All right. I'm here with former governor John Hickenlooper a candidate for the democratic nomination for president governor welcome to save America. Glad to be on. Thanks so much for having me back. I wanna hear the question that we some version of which we ask all the different candidates. So you are a moderate former governor mayor small business owner from western state. You look out at this gigantic field of democratic candidates. And there are actually other moderates other former governors former mayor's former small business owners people from western states. What was it when you were looking at the field in thinking about running that made you think something is missing in this field? I should run for president. This is this is my time to run. Well, if you look at there's only one other mayor, that's true. And he certainly wasn't a governor. Right. And there's only a former mayor former mayor and. But he wasn't a governor. Right. That's true to mayors, but they weren't governors and in a funny way, I feel like I'm the one person that actually has spent you know, my my life both in small business, but my life has eight years of Mary, here's the governor. My job was to bring people together who often were at odds in conflict and figure out how to get get them to put down their weapons and then get stuff done and I looked at the whole field. And in funny way, I looked at it almost everyone else. And you can as you interview each one you can ask whether I mean, I feel like I never ran for student council. I wasn't involved in student politics. I did it was that you didn't run until you're fifty years old nine years old when I ran from for Denver mares time I ever ran for anything. And I feel that you know, how kids in elementary school. You know chat books are school books that they have they have like three different images. What? Which one doesn't look like the others. Yeah. I feel like that within all the presidential candidates. I'm the one guy that insole business. You know, I started a restaurant and then worked with all the other restaurant owners to change and transform a whole neighborhood of Denver. What they call now. Lodo back. There was lower downtown. We've got everyone to gather. Yeah. It was a restaurant the bruises don't be a we were that. I think the tenth brew pub in North America. Okay. And so we opened up we used it as a community organizing tool to build community community, and we did him in a bunch of other cities like Omaha Des Moines, rapid city, South Dakota, always historic buildings in abandoned parts of downtown always trying to create community. And then when when I ran for mayor, I got all the suburban mayors to work together. And we did, you know fast tracks largest transit initiative in history of the country. And then when I was governor I went out to the got the environmental community to sit down with you on gas. Street, and we created, you know, these these regulations methane regulations to to stop the flaring and venting of methane, which is he'll methods twenty five forty times worse than than CO two in terms of climate. Each of these are just example after example of where I kinda felt like I was there to take people from where they were and move them to a different place where they could hear each other better. They could actually work together. Which again, I realized that cynicism. That's out there today. I I listen to podcasts. Erica. Ranger to the challenges that we face in all this.

Josh you had sort of started this conversation earlier. Dana Perino that for a couple of election cycles. Colorado sort of had that swing state kind of feel but this was a race that that police has been the front runner in from the beginning. Well, let's take a step back and look at who. Jared polis is he's probably going to be a much more liberal democratic governor John Hickenlooper who who is talked about as a possible independent now may cannon. He may he may run on an independent ticket a very moderate democratic governor Opole is spent before he was even elected to congress. He's very independently wealthy and spent a millions of dollars helping to elect Liberal Democrats into the state legislature. So this is Deanna saying that Colorado and also Virginia are moving to to the left under Trump, and that has only accelerated in this midterm election. But at the same time when we talk about the Senate, we're looking at Republicans making gains in the Senate, Indiana, North Dakota, Missouri looking good for Josh Holly right now with with the early returns coming in. So this election is looking like a split decision. Dem's doing well in the suburbs. Doing well. And in the house, but Republicans may end up getting a pretty healthy majority in the Senate. Yeah, that's what we don't. Yet know what we do know is Fox News can project it Republicans will retain control of the United States Senate that clinched with the win of Ted Cruz and Texas who fought off a very. Challenge from congressman Vetere rock in what has been now the most expensive Senate race in US history. But now the house of representatives changing the democratic hands, and it will set up a lot of interesting questions moving forward about how both sides try and message of this election in the two thousand twenty. Yeah. I mean, this is the races. I'm watching most closely are those governor's races in Florida Georgia in the Senate race in Texas beta Abrahams and Gillam all trailing and that's a bad night.
