"In our lived experience to really add to the conversation as the sole member of the Kansas delegation. That is part of the democratic majority in the house. I definitely think that there are a few things I bring, you know, whether it's the, the voice of the Kansas, third district, or the voice of a. Native woman who has some previous experience and expertise and in federal Indian law and economic and community development in native communities. I think that, you know, the idea of this congress accepting embracing and a lot of times, highlighting some of the work that both Deb Jalan denier doing has been pretty phenomenal. I'm congresswoman David could you tell us a little bit about the third district where exactly is that? What's the demographic like just paint us a basic picture? I'd love to talk about the Kansas third district. So where the Kansas City metro area, we have were on the Kansas side. So Kansas City Kansas, which is in Wyandotte county is its own unique historical place in this country. Wind dot county is one of the full counties that's in the district. The other one is Johnson county which. Which has a lot of suburban suburban parts of the Casey metro area. And then we have a small portion of Miami county where it starts to be a little more rural. And the, the district has you know, I mean I graduated from a community college there, we've got one of the best community colleges in the country, right there. But we've got just this, I'd say strong emphasis on public education, which is, you know, the a huge part of why I've had the opportunities I've had in my life, and I just I was really excited that Kansas got to play a role this year and being part of this history, making class of freshmen members of congress, Lieutenant governor Flanagan. Let me come to you similar questions. First question what have you learned about being a state executive in Minnesota in your first few days in office? Well as a Representative David said, it's it is a steep learning curve. But I think that what I have really learned is the responsibility, the weight of the responsibility. And the overwhelming feeling of being in the room where it happens a think that's the difference that it makes having indigenous women native people at the decision making table. The outcomes that we're able to achieve, I think are more reflective of who lives in the state as a whole and just think we'd get better policy outcomes. When our government accurately represents or more accurately represents the folks who live here. So that has been what has been really powerful for me. Yeah. Would you wrote this, which I you month? Would you expand on that police in terms of who lives in Minnesota because the state, I think? People would be surprised to know is remarkably diverse there's a significant monk population. There is a significant population from from various, you know, countries with a large Muslim population. Talk about the indigenous populations in Minnesota. And what some of their unique needs and concerns are. Absolutely, well, thank you for knowing about the great state of Minnesota, and that we have a really diverse population here, of course, as you mentioned, the monk community. We have a significant Somali population are lat next community is, as large as well, African American and the native population. We've got eleven reservations in the state of Minnesota, as well as a significant urban American Indian population too. And I think, you know, the needs of our communities are, are vast. But it comes down to issues around education, health care. Issues surrounding community prosperity and really the need to ensure..

"You know, sort of other pots of money that are available in all these agencies. And then what about the investigative powers? The Democrats will start asking a lot of questions about cabinet members in about the deregulatory agenda. How much can they do without pissing voters off? You know, there's a really fine line that they have to walk where they can start to ask real questions both of the president for the Russia conduct. And you know, the way the aid agencies are being run. So how much can they do without completely alienating a large swath of the voter base? Part of this for me, though is to differentiate between the impeachment, you know, Russia. Trump personal finances stuff, which is really an investigation and just the general oversight function, which this congress has not done for two years. Right. I mean when secretary of energy or EPA or interior does something. In a congress person is interested in why they did it. They have every right to bring them in front of a committee and ask them to explain themselves. Right. I mean, and that is something that they've done for, you know, decades for, you know, for years, and so I just think going back to actually just having basic oversight functions would be useful. Yeah. Totally agree. And I also think there are a couple of other places where they can have impact in both chambers. One is on trade issues because of all this tariffs. And I think that really does impact districts in not just one you're not from one political party. But anybody is district could be impacted by trade and also regulation so -regulation that impacts people's air and water can really have serious local implications. And I think that's where you can have a winning winning narrative and winning Vic. Sorry, I think that's where you can really see some good narrative that gets. Two local issues and also provide some checks and balances, well, let's wrap up with a look at some of the local races. Normally we end the show with the free electron, but we're doing it a bit differently. This week. We are going to take a look at specific consequential races. We were following so Catherine who caught your eye this time around. Yeah. I think I've mentioned her before cherise David's from Kansas third district. She was a White House fellow and a fan of the pod when she reached out to me and said, you know, I'm just filling finishing up my fellowship and trying to figure out what to do. I didn't know much about her at all except that. She was super smart, she'd gone to Cornell smile mater, she went to the law school there. She's a serial entrepreneur. And so we had a great conversation. I said, well, you know, keep me posted on what you're doing next thing. I know she wins the primary in Kansas third. And now, she's one of the first two native American women who is going to head into congress January, and I was just stunned. She's a mixed martial arts professional light, which I did not. Know when I met with her she's part of the LGBTQ community. She's just amazing and she's going to join another native American woman from New Mexico to the first Muslim women in congress. The youngest woman in congress who's twenty nine Alexandria, Cossio Cortez and a whole host of other women more women than ever have been represented in congress, and I'm super excited about that over a hundred. Yes, over one hundred and women not get into Syria types, but women do govern differently. And you know, I was talking with a friend about this about how girls play in much more kind of a flat hierarchy and in very cooperative ways. Whereas boys are usually a little more competitive in the way, they play. And this may be, you know, going by stereotype, but women work really well in a flat hierarchy, and congress is that it is very flat. Your boss is your. Constituent base you have leadership. Just so that structurally things will work, but they're not your bosses, your boss is who elected you. And and studies show that women bring back nine percent more federal spending to their constituents that they sponsored more bills than men that they're much more likely to work across the aisle. So I think this will just infuse really much more bipartisanship and more productivity in congress and cherise David's she routed her Republican opponent. She is a practitioner of mixed martial arts..

"That is SRI stabilize in Kansas third district and Holland in New Mexico's first district also in Minnesota Peggy Flanagan won the Lieutenant governorship alongside Tim walls. She's going to be the first native American woman to hold that office. So to native Americans going to congress and one Lieutenant governor in Minnesota. There were fifty four native Americans are running state and locally. Is this a record? It is something of a record. Absolutely. And I asked piggy Flanagan the newly elected Lieutenant governor of Minnesota. Why so many native American women were running for office? This time. And you know, some folks have said like, oh is it a response to Donald Trump? And I think in some ways that cheapens what we've been trying to do which is, you know, for a long time native folks have been registering to vote turning out to vote flipping seats across the country. And it is the natural next step that we would run for office ourselves. Are there any political differences between the native American candidates? Who are they all Democrats? That's great that you ask that question Marco because they're actually was here in Minnesota. There was a Republican Lieutenant governor that was running and she was from the red lake nation, Donna Bergstrom, but she lost to Peggy Flanagan. Correct. She lost to pay Flanagan. Yes. Another native American. Another native American the world's Alison at ETA at the studios of Minnesota public radio in Minneapolis. Thank you. Thank you so much Marco.

Are winning elections in ever at the federal and provincial level Cabello held a vote in early October. There are one hundred twenty five seats in the provincial legislature in Quebec and women. Now, hold fifty two of them. That's a national record plus go Navarro is a writer and women's rights advocate in Montreal. You were watching the US midterms from Quebec what do the results look like from where you're sitting. Well, we knew that it wouldn't be a big change everything won't change in Wedneday. But we could see that more women from the base that means more women that are non political professionals. You know that came to run for politics, and that for us was the big change. And what about in Quebec? I mean, did you have that kind of diverse spread of women candidates that now that there's forty percent of the seats in Quebec's provincial government with women who are they we have a more diverse women population candidates, but it's true that here like in any other country politics. I was always a secret garden. I mean, you have to know people we have this pure occupations to have more women coming from different professional environment and also from different social status and also different origins. Ca Beck's had its ups and downs. When it comes to women make progress in in provincial government, but as of October women now hold more than forty percent of the seats in the province. What was behind that victory in October behind that was a lot of energy posed by women and men also, but the women's group meeting politicians meeting her political parties and trying to convince them what is important in women being in politics, and how long did that education process? Take about three years since election of history at the federal level to any fifteen and he made a cabinet with the Heff woman half men and everybody was so surprised and charmed and what a man what a modern. Man, what a modern politician. Yeah. So we could come back and Quebec and told them to the government of Quebec you see did that..

And among the winners were former professional athletes cherise David's who wanted Kansas third district trained alongside John Jones as an MA fighter calling Allred will represent Texas thirty seconds. He spent four seasons with the titans and Anthony Gonzales who caught seven touchdown passes from Peyton Manning in five seasons with the colts will represent Ohio sixteen. In the b block. We're precisely midway through the NFL season in the Cowboys with high expectations entering the year are mired in mediocrity at three and five third in the NFC east. With question marks around quarterback deck Prescott was underperform since his stellar rookie year and longtime could stay Garrett whom owner Jerry Jones said will remain at least through the year still at least one famous alarm hall of fame quarterback. Troy Aikman voiced his concern with what's happening in Dallas. Team over a long period of time has been what it's been. And it hasn't always mattered who the head coach is Ben. And so to me dress can me I'd say there has to be a complete overhaul of the entire organization. You just can't simply replace head coaches and say now it's going to be better. No, it's been shown that it's not better. And you have to address how everything is being done. And there's been times where I've heard Jerry say, okay. Look we're going to do it differently. I'm going to do it differently. But it's the same nothing changes. And even more from the NFL former Cowboys star receiver does Bryant a free agent throughout this NFL season has agreed to a deal with the red hot New Orleans Saints where seven in one and the floundering. Baltimore Ravens have decided not to hold practice during their bye week. Coach John Harbaugh said he knew his team was better off resting at this point. Adding that he hopes this time off helps his team four and five to this point get their legs back. Provide context and all these NFL storylines as Washington Post NFL reporter, Mark Maske, Mark conflicting points of view between those inside the Dallas camp and those outside who may once have been inside that would be Troy Aikman. What was your reaction? To minutes words. You know, it's hard to argue at the -bility of what Troy Aikman says. I mean when you look at the Cowboys over a long period of time, it has been quite sometimes it's third Super Bowl tribe with Jerry Jones as the owner of the common denominator and all of that through the different coaches through the different regimes of quarterbacks is Jerry Jones and the way approaches us and his involvement as the owner being his own general manager. So yes, I think Troy Aikman is right. It would behoove Jerry Jones behoove the Cowboys to sort of stand back. Take a different approach bring in general manager to run things have a coach who can do things exactly the way he wants to without sort of having to answer so closely to Jerry Jones and everything but on the other hand, you know, it's not realistic. There are no midterm elections. With the Cowboys at this point Jerry Jones going to do things the way he wants to it's not realistic to believe he's at this stage in his life at this stage in his career..

"And one of the first mostly women elected to congress. Michigan's when she. It's alot more than also noting that in Michigan Rashida Toledo won her race as well. In New Mexico last night, democrat, Deb Jalan became the first or one of the first I should say native American women elected to congress today, we all came together. And we said we still believe in the American dream in American democracy. And in hope, we still believe America stronger, when we work together, we believe diversity and representation make us great. That's New Mexico's Deb how in last night. The other native American woman to win last night was Democrats cherise David's in kansas's third district. So we're brecca tracer. I mean reflect with me on how significant this is you you were talking about that a second ago. But I think we should explore more. How for a longtime Democrats have relied even curried favor with women of color in terms of voters, but didn't necessarily make room for them in the party. In terms of actual politicians or representatives. Are you? Are you seeing that changing now? Well, it should be changing. I think it was the women in the candidates themselves who insisted that it was changing this time. I don't know that the Democratic Party infrastructure that the Democratic Party establishment was particularly keen on a lot of these candidates when they started running a lot of these women weren't taken seriously. You look at somebody like Lauren Underwood in Illinois. She ran in her primary against six white men. She's an African American nurse. I believe she's thirty to a lot of these women are also young we should talk about that. That means that they are the potential future of this party. But Laura and Underwood was certainly an underdog in her Illinois house primary race, and she wound up winning against six white men. And then last night, she won Jerez. In Illinois for a house district, Lucy MC bath. Now her her race in Georgia's sixth district is as as my knowledge at this moment still undecided, but she's in the lead by a few hundred votes. She was not somebody that the party took particularly seriously. She won her primary, and then was in was in a runoff and won her primary. So I don't know that this is indicative right now of the party having newly invested in them. I think it's indicative of the women insisting that they were going to lead the party forward in the aftermath of that two thousand sixteen election, and I hope that the party infrastructure is paying attention and looking to these women for leadership because I believe that they are the future of the party that they must be the future of the party. All right. Well, you mentioned Lauren Underwood. We have some tape from her last night. She unseated four term Republican congressman Randy Holt grin, making her the first woman of color to represent the district her district now just outside of Chicago tonight, November six twenty eighteen I. Stand before you as this communities first congresswoman elect. If that's not standing on the shoulders of giants. I don't know what is together on this night. We made history. History Underwood I should know is a registered nurse and was previously. A senior adviser in the department of health and human services under the Obama administration. And interestingly back in March, I'm seeing here she told A L dot com. She said, I'm thirty one year old black woman. I am doubted in eight of the ten conversations I have. But here's what she says. She's lured you can see it on people's faces if you exceed their expectations, something switches, and they start to respect you. But what that means for her and her team is she has to be excellent every day at everything she does because she's being underestimated and counted out, and she says we need to exceed expectations at all time that all times. That's Lauren Underwood who won her congressional race last night. Will I want to welcome into the conversation on that note, Simone Sanders? He's joining us from Washington. She's a democratic strategist and CNN contributor, Simone Sanders. Welcome to point. Hi. How are you? I'm doing. Well. So so we were just talking about Lauren Underwood and several other women who. One yesterday in will later in the hour. We'll talk about Republican women who won. But tell me about what you see in these female victories for the the future of the Democratic Party. That women led the Democrats victory in the house of representatives, and frankly in governorships and in state legislative races across the country..

We have a great interview today with hill. Cherise, David's she's running for congress and kansas's third district, the fighting third. I'm sure it's David and I am the democratic nominee and the Kansas third congressional district. We're in the Kansas City metro area on the Kansas side and I'm running against Representative. Kevin Yoder, Kansas is, you know, it's it's rock chalk. Liberal politics is the the saying, I think, you know, I've heard this rock chalk business and thought Jay hot. So a little bit about cherise. She was raised by a single mom serving the army who is actually a drill sergeant. I definitely think that there's probably a lot of lessons that I learned around a work ethic watching your mom on her own raise three kids. I have two little brothers. Certainly, you know, shows you what hard work looks like. Probably something about senior mom in a in a army uniform growing up and then and then when she's the drill sergeant watching her, I did get to see my mom. At work sometimes and it. It's really cool to see that your your mom is a drill instructor for a group of of young people who have just joined join the military.

"Com. Kinda love that name guys. I kinda love to elect long. That's pretty memorable. Caroline long is a first time candidate, and she's challenging another woman Republican incumbent. Jaime Herrera Butler while the. Race leads Republican in the open primary more Democrats voted than Republicans, which makes this race much more competitive than was originally believed. And Caroline is a fighter who works for working families and group in a rural coastal community where her mother worked as a waitress and her father worked odd jobs and started a small produce business. And she started working at the store when she was twelve years old to help her family make ends meet. So she worked her way through college with a union job. Go unions, go you out to unions good union union at a grocery store, and then she went on to earn her PHD in political science. She's an accomplished professor who has written two books on constitutional law has worked at Washington state university Vancouver for more than two decades as a tenured professor and in administrative leadership positions and kind of felt the call to public duty and the civic duty. And she's running for office for the first time to stand up for Washington state, working families and to defend American values. As they come under attack. Like never before. She's great. She's also Jaime Herrera, Butler used to work, I believe, for another congresswoman from Washington state and hurt her opponent long's opponent, and she's a kind of an enemy of of choice as most Republicans are. Now, they're very few pro-choice Republicans, but Caroline long is is a democratic challenger to somebody who is very openly anti-choice. So she somebody that definitely deserves their support grace. Let's talk about your candidate. Well, let's talk about another first time Canada over here. First time candidate. Cherise, David's who is the democratic shallan would democratic challenger in Kansas third district, and you can find out more about her at cherise for congress dot com. So she is challenging Republican, Kevin Yoder, and if she is elected, she is a triple threat here if elected, she's going to be the first native American woman in congress, the first openly gay person from Kansas congressional delegation and the first woman to represent her district that show she wins. She just gonna like run around the district in circles. Just being like, oh, I'm in. I'm throwing her parade comes Queen of the district. She the district. So the race right now is a tossup. It's leaning slightly in favor of her opponent. However, Yoder is the most vulnerable house encumbent in Kansas, Kansas women, Amman Kansas. So cherise was raised by a single mother who is also US army veteran in Leavenworth and as a member of the ho-chunk nation. Cherise could make history again as the first thing that American woman elected in congress. So a little bit about her background. She graduated from law school and then worked for law firm in Kansas City specifically on issues, including economic development for native American tribes. She then went on to live and work on the pine ridge Indian reservation and she served as a White House fellow during the final year of the Obama administration. This is one of my favorite things about her. Most recently, she hosted a podcast that she called starting pants. Oh, I love that. It's so much and it's called starting pants because she interviewed entrepreneur. And investors. Also guys, this woman just keeps getting cooler. She's also competed in MMA tournaments. Yeah, mixed martial arts tournaments fighting both professionally and as an amateur both categories. Oh my God. It's awesome. She's cool. Also, I one quick note the pine ridge Indian reservation in South Dakota is one of the most economically depressed places in the country, and it's really, really something that needs smart people like her working on helping advance. So it's really cool that she did that also like she's an MA fighter. So she could literally kick off are totally literally and figuratively. I mean, she's go groceries. My candidate is Angie Craig.

Let me read some member comments for you guys. Alex writes in, and I'm not sure that he was saying this are cast or not, but he says it's weird that they push a bad person for such a high office instead of doing the right thing and getting cleaned, pick there. Are you familiar with the Republican party push a bad person for such a high office? I think you're being sarcastic because pretty sure that they already did that for the presidency Democrats. If someone came forward with allegations that. Democratic supreme court pick littered one year, like gun guy. Conversation. It's over that person's gone. I mean, they are you that, hey, these women are Democrats, and so they're not to be trusted. The first person that came out with allegations against Al Franken, worked at a conservative talk show. Again, it's always projection right anyway. WVU Libby seventy-one rights and in the member station. I'm so sick of hearing seventy two year old man say unfair over and over again like a five year old here here totally with you on that. Libby math mass seventy. One says when did not being on the supreme court means someone's life was ruined. Okay. Fair point. And then Tisch. ACP writes in is that twelve point advantage for progressive women too, because we've got several strong ones running in November. No, the twelve point advantage is generic democrat versus generic Republican, who do you want to control congress? So it it is not based on particular congressional seats nor the ass based on males or females, or it's just generic democrat Republican, but does that translate over to women? I who are candidates in my experience in the primaries more so yes. So for example, as I sell those numbers, Kevin Yoder in the Kansas third district running in St. David's. China gone gone. So those female candidates are getting even more female voters to turn out. So let's see what happens. This Forty-five, our little less than forty five days left, but I think they're in a world trouble. All right, and it was all right. How do Trump voters feel about the allegations against supreme court? Nominee, Brad Kavanagh? Well, Emma Viglen. One of our reporters went to a Trump rally in Springfield, Missouri to speak to the voters, and we're going to hear from them in just a minute, but before we do so the conservative media has gone out of its way to smear the accusers, and there are two as of now we have Dr Christine Blasi Ford who initially had the allegations against Brett Cavanaugh groping her without her consent and allegedly attempting to rape her when they were both in high school. And then later a Yale student who was a freshman at the time, accuses breath Cavanaugh of pulling his pants down and thrusting his penis toward her face. Now, Steve, Crowder is. A gross Verson. I mean, that's my bias against him, but you don't need to believe me. You can see for yourselves. Here's the way he covered the bread Cavanaugh allegations and how he referred to Dr Blasi Ford still talking about the alleged attempted rape accusation, Dr Christine, by the way, no longer going to be calling. Dr. Christine, Christine. Christie, Christie food you. Christie, let me just say this. Of course it's possible, but the accusations here could be accurate. Right? And we're not saying that all accusations of attempted rape or false. You have to balance the scales of Justice between as an attempted rape, some thirty, something years ago that someone doesn't know when that happened. While you stopped mid rape, possibly drunk and passed out. We're going to present the evidence to you and you decide, yes. By the way. I know you're saying just me no one else in the I labeled her lying hor without proof granted sheet at the same. But with attempted rape. Pissed. Okay. So we called her allying hor and he also accused her of calling someone rapist with no evidence. She did not call anyone a rapist. She accused attempted rape, those were allegations. But more importantly, there was evidence..

We talk a lot about how are the administration. The current administration is rolling back public policies, but it's okay because it he's in states are taking action and corporates are taking action.

I just thought it was good that it came out. I think it's something we should all read at some point. We may want to even talk about it in more detail what your second one. Yeah. The second one is just how humbling it is to have people all over. Listen to the show from all different backgrounds, all different political persuasions also. So I've heard from people on the far. Right. I've heard from senators. I have hurt US senators. I've heard from all kinds of people. One of the most impressive as an example was a young woman who came to me and she said, I'm a fan of the show. I'm also White House fellow, which is a very prestigious position to get. And she said, I'm trying to think about what I'm gonna do next. And this happens a lot where people come and chat, and I love listening to young people in what are they wanna do I, I can't always lay a bunch of wisdom on them, but I ask them a lot of questions and just have a general interest in in meeting people. Will it turns out this young woman is named cherise, David's and she. Just won the democratic primary in Kansas. Third district, she is a mixed martial arts professional, a native American and part of the LGBTQ community and is just astounding. And she's a fan of the show.

That's so cool. It's a testament to the power of this medium to because we can have a successful financially sustainable show that allows us to talk about a niche subject of great importance to people in the world and to influence people who are making decisions in the world. You know, ultimately, hopefully make the world a better place a hit, even hate using that term just because it's so Silicon Valley, but. You know to to truly like make an impact. And it goes back to the power of the podcasting medium. It allows us to do what what we can do every week. Yeah, it's great to be part of it. So as I was reading the losing earth feature, I saw a couple of tweets come through from guy name at Hawkins. He's a climate scientists at the university of reading and Ed Hawkins is known in social media for putting together the coolest graphs about climate change, that you can think of us coolest with air quotes because you know who really thinks that graphs that show extreme planetary warming are actually that cool that they are cooling that they get people thinking about climate change differently. So his latest visualization project is climate bar codes, and he uses bar codes to illustrate how much warming we have seen above twentieth century average. Ages in regions all around the world and in specific countries and regions. And you can see the colors change in the bar code over time and the lines get fatter, and fatter and fatter. So it's taking something that we know and recognize a bar code and applying increases in temperature averages. And it's just, you know, it's really stark like you can clearly see how quickly temperatures are changing as you know, the decades move on. He's also done another famous one that really broke through cautious must have been last year. I can't remember when it was, but it was. It's really cool. It's the climate spirals, and essentially you can see this little wheel turning and it's this little jagged line. That's the that's a wheel turning and slowly you see the spiral emerge, and that's how much temperatures have risen over twentieth.

"It seems unlikely raised by a single mom from community college to the Ivy league from a waitress to the White House. I'm sure he's David's and it's my story because even when I didn't have much, I had opportunity but today too many don't and Washington won't change that. That's why I'm running for congress. I'm sure as David's I approve this message because opportunity starts with good schools, affordable healthcare and safe communities. Cerise David's just won a crowded democratic primary in Kansas third district. If she wins in November, she would also be the first openly gay native American woman to be elected to congress. While her district may be small, it contains Kansas City and its suburbs. The cook political report is now calling it a toss up district. Hillary Clinton squeaked out a victory here in two thousand sixteen with a margin of just one. One point and Therese, David's joins us. Now, thank you very much for being on the show. Thanks for having me. I'm excited. Okay. So I, I wanted President Trump has already endorsed her opponent, and I want to read it here. Thank you to congressman Kevin Yoder. He secured five billion dollars for border security. Now we need Congress' support. Kevin has been strong on crime the border, the second amendment, and he loves our military and vets. Kevin Yoder has my full and total endorsement Cerise in your district, how helpful or hurtful is it to have President Trump injecting himself into your race for your campaign? You know. I honestly, I think that one of the things though we need in the third district and what we haven't had up to this point with Kevin Yoder is Representative who is fighting for the agenda. The third district and I, I don't think it's helpful to have the president or anyone else from outside this district saying that Kevin Yoder is fighting for his agenda or anyone else's agenda. He needs to be fighting for the agenda that third district as you're campaigning, are you hearing from people who might say to you. You know, I I like what you're saying, but I want someone who's going to be in Washington, who supports the president is the president front of mine for people, or is it other things. Yet the the president is isn't. Pri- is not a primary topic that I'm hearing from people. You know, as I go around and I have meet and greets and we're knocking on doors and talking to folks. I, the primary thing I'm hearing about is healthcare. There are too many people who are concerned about what what they're going to do if they get sick or that they don't have health insurance or that they're struggling with high premiums, like they're the things that people are concerned about are not the are not just the president of the United States. It's how are we going to improve opportunity for the folks right here? And again, the president sent that tweet injecting himself into into your raise, unsure between now and election day he's going to, he's going to do it again in that in that tweet, he talked about border security. When you have a constituents who might future constituents potential constituents who might say, well, what are you going to do about the borders? What are you going to do about immigration? What what answer do you have for them. You know, really, I think one of the things that so many people have expressed to me in in my conversations with folks here is that they what is happening right now at the border and what has happened with with family separation is appalling, and I have not met anyone in the third district that I've talked to who is not completely appalled by what's been going on. And I don't think that they're satisfied with the way that Kevin Yoder has failed to act. You know, he hasn't done anything. He sits as the chair of the subcommittee of homeland security, and he hasn't done anything except for sent a letter to the attorney general, and that is not action. We need action and Kevin Yoder isn't doing that. You know, he attacked you on the Tuesday before you won the primary saying, you lacked Kansas values, the Kansas City star at a to'real board responded that saying, we hope he wasn't talking about the fact that she'd be the first native American woman elected to congress in the. I openly LG LGBT person to represent Kansas. You lack Kansas values is that is.
