"This is a tough place to be a woman. I've been put down pushed aside knocked out tooth is. I've had to fight my whole life. Because of who I am. Who I love and where I started. But I didn't let anything getting my way. Still it's two thousand eighteen and women native Americans gay people the unemployed and underemployed fight like hell just to survive. And it's clear Trump and the Republicans in Washington don't give a damn about anyone like me, or anyone that doesn't think like them. That's why I'm running for congress.

"Presidentially endorsed Katie Errington lost that seat to a democrat whose name is. Joe cunningham. That I mentioned that was South Carolina. Just one by democrat. A few weeks. After President Trump applied, his unparalleled presidential political genius to the Katie airing. Ten Mark Sanford race, which cost the Republicans seat in the house. The president also confidently waited in to the Kansas governor's race when Republican voters in Kansas for deciding this year who is going to be their candidate for governor. They had a choice between a sort of normal conservative Republican or a much much much Trumpy your choice named Chris Kobuk immensely. Controversial very high profile Kansas secretary of state sort of a special White House advisor on non-existent voter fraud in that Kansas primary decide who the Republican party's candidate would be for governor in Kansas the president once again decided that he would exert his political genius and way in this was an August. He announced his full and total endorsement in that primary four Chris Koba Kobuk won that primary. Presumably in part on the strength of the president's endorsement crisco back went onto the general election last night as the Republican candidate for governor in Kansas, and he is the Republican candidate for governor. Who's lost the Kansas governorship to a democrat named Laura Kelly, and it wasn't even that close and Chris co box dead weight at the top of the ticket, and Kansas may have also been enough to cost Kansas Republican congressman Kevin Yoder his seat as well. I mean, Chris Kobuk lost the Kansas governorship last night to a democrat congressman Kevin Yoder lost his congressional seat to a democrat as well..

"Of losses for the pro amnesty Republicans in the house of representatives for the most part the big losses out. There were those who did not support the Trump agenda. There are a few outliers. Dave brat went down Virginia's seventh district, which is a shame. He was outspent. I think ten to one redistricting seat, which was also very tough for him took in a lot more of the Richmond suburbs. So that was tough for him. But you look at this like Curbello in Florida pro amnesty? He was a disaster. You had Kevin Yoder, congressman pro amnesty. He went down. And I kept thinking to myself imagine, if the imagine if we had a speaker of the house who was in full throated support of our president's agenda and was actually moving pieces of legislation that were clearly tied to the Trump agenda beyond just the, you know, the tax cut, but I'm talking about the wall. I'm talking about clear asylum reform, all the things that Trump campaigned on immigration wise, they were not able to move now. Of course, you had trouble in the Senate with Chuck Schumer blocking things, but I am very happy with this result. And this is not spin on my part. I'm not trying to spin this. I didn't think we're gonna hold the house. I told you all that last week. I thought it'd be extremely unlikely that that would happen. But when when you only see the Democrats picking up. Twenty seven twenty eight seats that's below the historical average for mid term elections and losses for the party in power in me awhile. When you see the Senate. Having flip seats to the Republican side. And the again, this they haven't called all of these races. But it looks pretty good for the Republicans picking up four to five house seats. It's only happened four times in history in a midterm cycle that the party in power picks up Senate seats, that's significant that is all Donald Trump. We had a good night in the Senate. We're going to pick up three or four seats. At least President Trump has a lot to be proud of in terms of creating the enthusiasm than these red state, Trump states that Democrats held without him. I don't think we'd had the night. We have. Well, look at what he did for Ted Cruz and Texas Raymond Royal going to throw this out to you. Do you believe with the rather narrow margin that Ted Cruz one Texas bide his Senate seat? Do you believe after having been at that Houston rally that if Trump did not make that a priority that that crews would have definitely won that seat, Laura? There was no doubt. And we saw it last night the defining factor. The thing that made the difference in Florida in Texas in Ohio was all Donald Trump. And it shows his critics underestimated him he still has enormous influence over this electorate, and Laura I was just looking at polling numbers here. The number two issue. Tom was immigration. So though, people were shellacking the president for raising this in the last days of this mid-term may have been the defining factor that separated that that one or two points that these candidates desperately needed in place. Well, look at the Republicans who went down, and again, there are a few exceptions. And I'm talking about the house and the Senate the Republicans who went down the big races people like, Barbara, Comstock, anti-trump pro amnesty? Barbara Comstock, you look at Scott Taylor in Virginia. Scott Taylor was big into the military spending. You know, he's a former military man himself. Scott Taylor was not pro-trump. He was pro amnesty? Remember I had him on. I had him on the angle last year. He was not good on any of these issues. Okay. He wa he doesn't care about blowing hole in the in the budget deficit if you can spend the military he's fine on that. He goes down to LA and Loria in Virginia, which is which is turning increasingly into just solid democrat state Carlos Cabello lost to Debbie. Mercy. Mariscal power Powell in Florida and Florida's twenty-six district. He was another pro amnesty, Donna Shalala wins. And Florida twenty-seventh. Against a very charismatic, but pretty much a pro amnesty, Hispanic Republican reporter for some reason on my sheet. We still have that Ileana Ross Layton was running in that race. She retired. Yeah. So it was Maria. And I can't remember last name excuse me. But it's not on my sheet. I can't remember everything. Yeah. So John Foucault loses in New York nineteenth another bad on immigration. Mike kaufman. Colorado, not good on immigration. He's another one who lost. So there are a number of people in in the Kevin Yoder. Kevin Yoder was terrible on immigration he loses. So again, there are a few exceptions to this. But this is Trump's party now like get it through your head. This is Trump's party, Laura. There's another point that's being lost. In a lot of the coverage. I've been watching all morning in just like two thousand sixteen people talk about diversity in the voting place that we saw new voters the rural voters turned out in droves for Donald Trump this time in Indiana in Missouri in North Dakota, even in Florida. It was the rural districts that made the difference that one these Republican seats across the board. That is a significant thing that we should not lose sight of now the rural voters versus the. The the city dwellers this big prediction, by the way of the Latino and Hispanic voters turning out in droves for the Democrats. I we don't have the final results here when it comes to the exit polls and who voted for what least I don't see them in any of my nations in front of me. But they obviously didn't result in this Blue Wave. They did not get the Blue Wave go back in and look at the soundbites we have in our system predicting that we are going to take they were going to take the house and the Senate one after the other came up we're going to take the house you're gonna take the center we're going to take the house going to take the Senate Donald Trump's gonna get wiped out year ago. It was Trump wipe out in what did Trump do? He said, oh, really, let me tell you what's happening to this country. We're losing the sense of law and order. These people are going to tax you a noble of, Ian. They're going to put up a wrench into my plans to to turn this country around and make the country great again, and you've got to stick with me. Now, again, the headwinds in the. House where too much for him to overcome. But I go back to this. If we had a speaker of the house who was pro Trump and was beating the drum for Donald Trump. I think we could have had probably a smaller deficit of seats lost in the house of Representative Paul Ryan disaster. So your sense of tonight and where it's heading tomorrow. Yeah. You know, I actually feel good. I've been crisscrossing notches, Wisconsin. What America says two nights six for the last three weeks in twelve states at fifty cities campaigning with our members of the toughest races. Frankly, I members feel pretty good because they have a really good message. Brett, the alternative is the chaos and the dysfunction in Washington. The Democrats are basically promising if they get control of congress. So we really feel like we got a good shot at keeping our majority because our record is good. And the contrast is so strong. Okay. That sounds sounds really thrilled. There doesn't he that's not the sound bite. I wanted. However, I want the sound bite when when he was talking about the his call to the president. We gotta think guys think think think. Five steps ahead here. He calls the president last week in clearly Raymond he leaked it, right? Yeah. This call he leaked the call to the president. He said he called the president and told him back off immigration immigration messages killing us, the immigration message saved you save the Senate for this for this country. It is disgusting that we had a speaker of the house who was not lined up with the president's agenda from top to bottom. And now just his retirement in the summer. He should have high tailed it out of Washington a given that job to someone who is going to run with the agenda. Instead, you always get the sense of Paul Ryan was like an uncomfortable. I'm uncomfortable. We was always really cause. Wisconsin's losing without the full throated support for Donald Trump. So you lost the governorship of Wisconsin. And we lost seats. We didn't have to lose. Because we didn't have a strong speaker. I'm sorry loara. They should have done, and we advocated for this. When Paul Ryan announced his retirement, they should have found a new speaker immediately and allowed him to lead the charge, right? A new contract with America and have a house agenda. They might have been able to hold a few more seats, and the majority how many people showed up at Paul Ryan's rallies. What do you go to like the the Pizza Hut or whatever? Where did he go that pizza barn in Iowa the fall festival fall fast? He just can't have a speaker of the house in a in a tough race. Like this who is not beating the drum on the issue that people cared about most. Which was it was it was the issue of immigration that I think motivated a lot of these red staters to turn out. Okay. A lot of them, by the way, Jon tester. We don't know. It's very close. But Don, Don, Jon tester. Could I say could lose his Senate seat Montana? That's very close. It's forty eight point eight to forty eight point three percent. So that's a tough one, but tester could lose. That's all Trump all Donald Trump. How many times you go to Montana? Donald Trump was in Montana three times. Eric Trump was in Montana. The trumps are carrying this party on its back now, and I would say the Republicans out there. There are a lot of never-trumpers were on television last night. Lied and never Trumpers people. Yeah. I guess. Donald Trump without him. It would have been a sixty seat wipe out in the house of representatives would've lost fifty sixty seats the issue. I think that we're gonna see play out over the night is the degree to which Donald Trump at Air Force One in the dramatic arrivals in all of these states for these mega rallies where he incited all manner of racial animus, in fact, does turn out to be a pestilence arriving was it a plague of locusts for these candidates. Even follow that did he's what time of night. Did he say that what an idiot? That is just the most idiotic thing. I've ever heard that is really stupid. I think the biggest heartbreaker for me might be the Connecticut governor's race, which I was asking me about all night. No one ever want to cover. It. Stefanski was was projected to win last night. Now, it looks like Ned Lamont that nightmare is gonna win. Who's a failed Senate candidate Ned Lamont's gonna win in Connecticut? I I have no words fear state is in a complete free fall. And you re electing Democrats, this is it makes no sense. I guess they're calling for Lamont. Now I've seen that called for him last night. It was for Stefanski. So breaking news Abrams is not conceding the Georgia governor's race Hillary, she's predicting a runoff John Podesta. I'll be out in a moment. We're not calling the Senate. We're going to take a break. Eight five five forty Laura. Who are the biggest losers of last night? The biggest losers. We'll talk at individuals and groups to Pat Buchanan is gonna join us. Pat Buchanan turned eighty years old on November second he has more wisdom than all these pundits on television combined. We're going to talk to you cannon. Raymond Arroyo is with us who are the biggest losers. And who is the biggest winner of the night. Eight five five forty.

"The Bush Republicans another series of losses for the pro amnesty Republicans in the house of representatives for the most part the big losses out. There were those who did not support the Trump agenda. There are a few outliers. Dave brat went down Virginia's seventh district, which is a shame. He was outspent. I think ten to one it was a redistricting which was also very tough for him. A lot more of the Richmond suburbs. So that was tough for him. But you look at this like Curbello in Florida pro amnesty? He was a disaster. You had Kevin Yoder, congressman pro amnesty. He went down. And I kept thinking to myself imagine, if the imagine if we had a speaker of the house who was in full-throated support of our president's agenda. And was actually moving pieces of legislation that were clearly tied to the Trump agenda beyond just the, you know, the tax cut. But I'm talking about the wall. I'm talking about clear asylum reform, all the things that Trump campaigned on immigration wise, they were not able to move now. Of course, you had trouble in the Senate with Chuck Schumer blocking things, but I am very happy with this result. And this is not spin on my part. I'm not trying to spin this. I didn't think we were going to hold the house. I told you all that last week. I thought it would be extremely unlikely that that would happen. But when when you only see the Democrats picking up twenty seven twenty eight seats, that's below the historical average for term elections and losses for the party in power in. Meanwhile, when you see the Senate. Having flip seeks to the Republican side. And the again, this is the they haven't called all of these races. But it looks pretty good for the Republicans picking up four to five house seats. It's only happened four times in history in a midterm cycle that the party in power picks up Senate seats, that's significant that is all Donald Trump. We had a good night in the Senate. We're gonna pick up three or four seats. At least President Trump has a lot to be proud of in terms of creating the enthusiasm in these red state, Trump.

"It's morning edition from NPR news. I'm Steve Inskeep. And I'm no well king. Good morning. The results are coming in from the two thousand eighteen midterm elections. Democrats have taken the house while Republicans held onto the Senate Kansas is a deeply Republican state that sauce some power shifts Democrats flipped one house seat. They're cherise David's beat the Republican incumbent, Kevin Yoder and democrat, Laura. Kelly won the governorship over Kansas secretary of state crisco Bach last night. Here's Kelly today. Canton's voted for change. A change not only in the direction of our state, but a change in the tone in our state. Mclane of member station K C, you are in Kansas twice being acrimony. Jim. Hey, good morning. All right. We heard from Laura Kelly just there, but I want to actually start with cherise Davis because she is making history has made history in more ways than one hasn't. She absolutely. She's got quite a bio for first novice in the political arena and native American an army veteran. She's the first openly gay member of kansas's congressional delegations. He's a mixed martial arts fighter. And she's a loss law school graduate from Cornell who then to also serve as a White House fellow votes. President so far President Trump did her win come as a big surprise in this normally deeply Republican state really not really this is a suburban Kansas City district the types that Democrats have been targeting all over the country, and it's a district. Hillary Clinton won in twenty sixteen at only by a single percentage point and Therese day, which was was leading really throughout the campaign. And then you have Laura Kelly who who beat out Republican crisco back for the governorship. You her? Heard her there talk about a change in the direction of our state. Why did co back lose this race? Well is large part. I think it's because Laura Kelly did her a level fast to tie Chris coupon to former Republican governor Sam Brownback. You may remember him he cut income taxes deeply that led to a budget crisis in the state, and I I think there's still a Brownback hangover in the state, and I think Senator Kelly's he's a state Senator was successful in tying to Brownback because box in the promised to cut state spending. And also to revisit and reimpose the Brownback tax cuts worth noting in the couple of seconds that we have left. We've heard a lot about women doing very well in these midterms. That's the case in Kansas. So far. I think that had something to do with the to exit polls suggested that there was women. Women really turned out for both of these candidates. Casey. You are Jim McLean. Thanks, jim. You bet. While Democrats won the house of representatives and a range of midwestern governors races last night. Some progressive stars lost Beto rock fell short in the Texas. Senate race Andrew gillum lost the governor's race in Florida. We could name a few others. So did the party on the whole lean farther left? Jeff Weaver is our next guest. He was manager of Senator Bernie Sanders two thousand sixteen presidential campaign remains a Sanders adviser, Mr. Weaver. Thanks for coming in my pleasure. Happy to be here. So how is the party different than what it was based on who is going into office and whose going out? Well, I think when you look at last night's election results, you had progressive candidates running in deeply red places and purple places battleground places, Florida, Texas, and other places who really outperformed how Democrats traditionally do in those areas, and we also saw in the upper midwest you saw the defeat of Scott Walker. You know, you saw in Michigan a candidate Whitmer winning with who supports a fifteen dollars minimum wage and a host of other progressive initiative. So I think you are seeing a real transformation in the party in terms of where it's winning and who's winning? Although you have Democrats who won in places like Oklahoma and South Carolina, and Kansas who might be you might see them as culturally progressive because they're more diverse. They're women they're minorities there openly gay, but they're not necessarily endorsing Medicare for all. Which is something that Bernie Sanders wanted people to well, you know, if you look at the candidates who are running and winning the center of gravity in the party has shifted while they may not all support Medicare for all are they certainly support many of the signature progressive issues. Again, I mentioned many of them. Support us significantly raising the minimum wage, many of them support not only protecting social security, but expanding social security. So I think you're seeing a real shift in the party away from it sort of nineteen ninety neoliberal dalliance moving. I'm back to where the party was an historic nineteen ninety s neo-liberal dalliance, which is a fancy way, I guess to say Bill Clinton ISM is what you're talking about. Bill Clinton represented a whole movement within the Democratic Party. By people who in an earlier time would have been called Rockefeller Republicans who came into the Democratic Party, moved it in a very pro corporate direction. And I think you're seeing the Democratic Party rediscovering it's a routes. Our colleagues got detro- is in the studio here as well. So the twenty twenty presidential race may be underway by the end of the week Bernie Sanders. Other Democrats thinking about running take the end of the week, Scott. That's the optimistic. Bernie Sanders is going to be having conversations with you and others deciding what to do. So I'm curious for you. What results from last night would be part of that conversation and would tell you the most about what the map could look like, and what sort of democrat could do. Well, well, I think what you saw last night was the Democratic Party and now on the road to regaining power in this country. We obviously took the House Republicans did well in the Senate. But of course, with a map that was very favorable to them. In fact, I heard reported earlier on this show the most favorable map for them since the beginning of the twentieth century. So in two thousand twenty what you're seeing. Now is that the blue what we call the blue wall, the Pennsylvania, Wisconsin Michigan is being rebuilt by the Democratic Party. And I think bodes well. Because if you look at twenty sixteen Hillary Clinton had won Pennsylvania, Wisconsin in Michigan should be present United States, very briefly. If we assume this wasn't some large measure and anti-trump vote that means some people voted for Democrats who maybe aren't sold on Democrats. What is one thing? Democrats can do or have to. Do with control of just one house of congress to persuade people. They're the right party. Well, I think the the house of representatives has to start passing a serious progressive initiatives, like raising the minimum wage like a serious, transportation, bell and other initiatives that will show the American people what they could have if Democrats controlled both houses of congress and the presidency, Jeff Weaver. Thanks for coming by a pleasure talking with you. Thank you. Appreciate it. He was the campaign manager for Bernie Sanders in two thousand sixteen and remains a senior advisor to the Senator. All right this morning. We're hearing from voters about what it was like to cast their ballots on election day into Moines. Iowa teller Voss spent the night in the ER with stomach pains. But then she told her doctor she had somewhere to be straight up just like as long as I get out by like eight thirty. So I can drive to my polling place be great. And in ashville, North Carolina Clare Ryan voted this year as she always does motivated by tradition that her mother started the name most important part was if you don't vote on election day, you're not getting better Clair's mother passed away years ago, but her family still lives by this rule. It's gone onto the next generation. I've done a message to my dribbling Germany, and my sister said that she met her sign up to polling place, then he looked up guess, we both deserve dinner tonight.

"Sam Sanders here this week talking to Abby Jacobson, you know, her from her comedy central show brought city we're going to talk about a solo cross country road trip Abby took recently, and why she wrote a book all about that is on the latest episode of it's been a minute from NPR. And we are back, and let's start with the house. We know the Democrats won control of the house, but let's peel that back a little bit. What is underneath that are these all just districts that Hillary Clinton one that had Republicans in in those seats, or is there something more going on there? There are also a lot of seats where Republicans were tired moderate Republicans rather than face a difficult. Reelection chose not to run and Democrats picked up a lot of those seats there. Also, a couple of places some re- some surprising places where Republicans should have won. But didn't I'm looking at places like Iowa and Virginia and Oklahoma places that that Democrats previously really wouldn't have been able to compete but made serious gains cancel homo was in Kansas. Yes. So Kevin Yoder the and this is this race is one that I talked about in the last podcast in one that. I think says a lot of things, but Kevin Yoder is this Republican congressman in a district that included a lot of suburbs. And President Trump went to Kansas and held a rally and Kevin Yoder was washing his hair. He he did not go to the rally literally, washing his hair. No. But like, you know, it was like I have a scheduling conflict with something. That's not that big a deal. So we had a scheduling conflict. He didn't go to the rally with President Trump. He was trying to distance himself at times from President Trump and he lost. And you could look at other candidates numerous other Republicans who distance themselves from Trump are not going to be in the house take Carlos Curbello, south of Miami. He was probably the most anti-trump Republican running and he lost in a in a Clinton district in a Clinton district. And you know, I think that says a lot about where the house is heading because the places where Republicans one are the safest places where they drew the districts to make sure a Republic. Could easily win by being elected by Republicans. If I have really really really read base Republicans. But that meant that they drew some of these more, you know, moderate Republicans, or I guess you could call them business Republicans drew them into districts with Democrats who became more democratic over time. And it just changed the face of the electric. I mean, this is one of the things that we've seen is been a slow kind of shift. I would say for the past couple of election cycles, which is white college educated voters, tilting more and more towards the Democratic Party. We saw indications of that yet again today with the exit polls, and there's this sort of random quirky fact that I find very fascinating. So there are a whole bunch of congressional district. You can look at by their best highly educated districts and overall most of them have Democrats who represent them there were only two represented by Republicans one was VA ten which is now going to be represented by democrat. And the other is Georgia's sixth congressional district which has not yet been called. But it is actually extremely close right now..

Americas heartland issues referendum on Trump

"Today. We're bringing you a story from America's heartland the midwestern state of Kansas US voters will head to the polls tomorrow for the highly anticipated midterm elections. And there are a number of battleground races to watch one of them being Kansas third congressional district. What's happening? There is happening in a lot of places across the US many traditional Republicans. Suburban voters are rejecting politicians who've align themselves with President Trump, and in some cases, the rallying behind non traditional candidates as a sort of referendum on the president's policies. The F T Jennifer Siegel spoke with data journalists Brooke FOX who's been covering this race. Br grew up in Kansas near the district and last month. She went back to talk to voters. So Brooke tell me about Kansas City for someone who's never been there. What do they need to know about this district? So the city sits on the border of Kansas and Missouri. The third congressional district in Kansas City is mostly made up of the suburbs of the city. It's pretty well known in the area as being more affluent district, although it does include more urban less affluent areas as well, but on the whole UC higher levels of income higher levels of education than you would see in other districts in the state a lot of people that currently live in Kansas City, generally have family roots somewhere in farming. And a lot of them have moved to the city as a result of job opportunity there that is in more the professional in management industry versus in the agriculture industry, and give us a sense of the political landscape there. What is voter registration look like in this district. It's pretty close to being split down the middle. Slightly more majority to Republican side. This district is not Representative of the rest of the state because the rest of the state represents more rural districts. This district is Representative of what you find it other suburban districts around the country, so areas close to big cities. I think off hand counted maybe five or six suburban districts where you're seeing a democratic challenger outpolling, a Republican incumbent, and that's that is happening across the country, not necessarily just in Kansas. Right. And we seem to be seeing a trend where Republicans who have historically been in safer seats are facing competitive challengers on the left, but let's talk about the key race in this district. It's four seat in the house of representatives told me about the candidates, so Kevin Yoder. This is his fifth time running to be a congressman for this district. And he is pretty well known for being a budget guy. He's fairly moderate compared with other Republicans, and he is facing. A very strong challenge from a woman named cherise David's she's lesbian. She's a native American woman, and she's also a former professional MMA fighter. So she sort of a surprising candidate she's never run for office before, but she did work as a fellow in the White House in the department of transportation. So she does have some political experience in her background. So you talked to quite a few voters in this district. One of them was a man named Steve rose, and he's pretty frustrated with Kevin Yoder, the incumbent tell me a little bit more about Steve. And what he told you Steve rose is a columnist in the Kansas City area who has voted for Kevin every time he's run in the past. But this year, he's frustrated because he thinks that the congressman is voting too closely aligned with Donald Trump's policies, and that that's not reflective of what the district wants. And here we used to be. It's no longer Maher is now Trump junior more he's inset with Trump the more. He's also with is this for Steve rose told me that there's nothing that Kevin Yoder has really done to merit a frustrated public that what they're frustrated with his Donald Trump and the more closely. He is viewed as being aligned with him is where he he's going to run into trouble. So voters there seemed to be issuing a sort of referendum on the president. I put the referendum question to several people in the district. And they all emphatically said, yes, this is a referendum on the president and this idea of a referendum. What's the driving force behind it? I did talk to quite a few people who are moderate Republicans themselves. And a lot of them are switching party lines to vote for the democrat. They just like to see someone stand up to Donald Trump, essentially don't think that Donald Trump necessary. Appeals to a lot of these more centrist voters in the suburban districts.

"Chris. Kobe Republican candidates governor standing next to President Trump. Go back has made a career stoking anti immigrant sentiment. A secretary of state. He's pushed for new rules requiring that people show proof of citizenship before registering to vote as a private attorney. He worked with cities across the country to help pass ordinances that make hiring or renting to undocumented immigrants unlawful at the rally. Kobuk warned that immigrants here illegally are drain on the state's finances. It's time to put cans, I not illegal aliens. That sentiment plays. Well with Republicans in a state that Trump won by a wide margin. It also plays. Well in rural Kansas where there's anxiety about immigrants taking jobs in bringing crime. But that rhetoric could hurt Kobe with voters in the growing suburbs of Kansas City. That's where Representative Kevin Yoder. Another Republican is taking a more moderate tone when it comes to immigration. He has been endorsed by Trump, but didn't appear at the rally in an interview with Casey, you are in Kansas City Yoder says he supports Trump's crackdown on a legal immigration and the border wall. These also willing to work across the aisle. I also supported a democratic plan that would make sure that DACA kids can't be deported. I also supported a democratic plan that would ensure that we can't separate parents from their children that approach may have won over some moderates. But it alienated those further to the right. Take conservative talk show host Laura Ingram. She blasted Yoder for supporting a democratic plan. That would make it easier for migrants fleeing domestic abuse to get asylum in the United States. Yoder said he sympathized with the victims because his mother was a social worker. Here's her response on Fox News, your family history shouldn't be allowed to the president's immigration agenda, and frankly, imperil the party's prospects in the midterms Yoder eventually backed away from the democratic plan. There have been clear concerns that this would allow millions of people potentially to make fraudulent claims Yoder's district is increasingly home to wealthy college educated people, and it's skewing more democratic Hillary Clinton narrowly won the district two years ago university of Kansas political science professor Patrick Miller says Yoder is projecting a more centrist image to appeal to those changing demographics. You know? He he really hasn't walked away from Trump's policies yet. He's attempted to say things or express concern over things like children being detained that might seem more sympathetic to. What's really a swing district that he represents? In several recent polls Yoder is trailing his challenger. Democrats cherise David's and co back is in a dead heat with his democratic rival, Laura. Kelly in Kansas as in other parts of the country. It's unclear which strategy will work in the midterms. Whether that's reaching out to moderates or ignoring them and relying on Trump's base frame.

"We'll be taking you to a Senate debate in the state of Washington this between Senator Maria Cantwell and her Republican challenger Susan Hutchison. This'll be moderated by KOMO fours, Mary nam and KIRO seven Essex porter. And this will also be live on C span television. And until then we catch up on more of campaign twenty eighteen and races that we're keeping an eye on that Washington is keeping an eye on in this interview from earlier on Washington journal across how who rucks who reports for national journal. He has their political editor here to talk about the November elections, particularly in light of current events in the last few weeks. Good morning to you. Good morning painter. How would you say overall how Cavanaugh plays out into these November elections? He plays to both parties basis. Democrats are as energized as they've never been and Republicans have gotten a boost of momentum especially in the Senate races that are being fought on conservative turf. So if you had to look at it big picture for the midterms Democrats are looking are looking in commanding position to win back the house, but Republicans have gotten a jolt of momentum in the Senate and may end up picking a couple of seats. We even heard Mitch McConnell say about the Republican enthusiasm because of what happened cavenaugh that bears itself out as far as polling, and what you might be seeing on the ground there. Democrats already had momentum's. So even though this energizes women, this energizes liberals, there wasn't a whole lot more to begin given that you look at the elections of the last couple years Democrats are showing up Republicans work. There was a Republican apathy, even some Republican overconfidence and some of the more conservative parts of the country Republicans have more to gain from this battle, especially in these red state Senate races that they're hoping to pick up on the house side. Remind people how many seats have to be overturned in order to get Democrats to take possession of the house, and what seats could be looking like as far as toss ups, and whatever could add to that number Democrats need to win twenty three twenty three house seats. There are over ninety seats in play that Republicans hold according to the the cook political report. So the, you know, the the battleground map of districts that Democrats can win is getting larger and larger and they're predominantly taking place in suburban parts of the country where President Trump is not particularly popular and where the. Base where especially suburban women independent women are turning away from the Republican party. You spent time in Kansas over the weekend. President Trump was there. But particularly what were you looking at when it comes to these races. I was in overland park, Kansas. It's in the suburbs of Kansas City. Kevin Yoder is the Republican congressman been there for four terms. He's someone who's always one pretty easily. He's had sort of on the Senate right image in in congress. But he's facing a real challenge from I first time political candidate who surprise a lot of Democrats in the primary and is leaning in many of the public polls. And it's a suburban area one of the most affluent parts of the country. These are the types of part. These are the kind of demographic a parts of the country that have moved very very much away from President Trump. Why Cherie stave it's having such strong showing? Well, she certainly energizes the base. She's she would be the first native American candidate congresswoman from Kansas. She's someone who raised two point seven million. L dollars in the last three months, which is. That's that's that's the type of money that senators raise not not I type house candidates. But there is a just a huge energy and any democrat or anyone who looks at the Cavanaugh hearings it, and it gets really upset on the left is showing up at the polls. And they're doing a lot to organize it and get activated into their community from that money that she raises that coming all from in state or is that coming from outside influences to well. There's a lot of outside money coming from. I mean, and that's to be expected given that this is a nationalized political environment. And there's a lot of democratic money coming into the house because as energy among the activists to take back the majority that's an issue, by the way that Kevin Yoder the Republican congressman is attacking her on. He's saying he's raising his money in state. She's going to fund raisers in New York outside of Kansas to get a lot of her cash. Let's show. Some folks who are watching what ads look like in Kansas, particularly when it comes to this race that our guest is talking about here are some of those ads. Kevin Yoder and democrat candidate cherise David's were scheduled to debate today. But then democratic candidate cherise Davis pulled out so David do not appear this event iota was there. But cherise David's was a no show. I was a iota voter her Kevin Yoder nearly every time, but then he voted to do away with protections for pre existing conditions, meaning my breast cancer, meaning my heart condition, meaning my cancer could cost thousands more for coverage or mean that I'm denied care altogether. Yoder took hundreds of thousands from big insurance then voted with them. I'm no longer voting for him. Nope. This Notre this voter this voter is not for Yoder. David's I approve this message. So one from Kevin Yoder one from cherise David's break them down as far as the issues are concerned the Yoder ad that is an emerging theme from the congressman who knows he's running a little bit behind as trying to portray himself as the underdog. And I when I was in Kansas. He was at this local bar association event that the democrat David's decided to skip. And he was making the case that she's running light like like the front runner and trying to avoid voters not trying to be accessible in the final weeks of the campaign. And now they've put that message up on television. It remains to be seen whether that will work, but he sort of accusing the democrat of getting cocky running out the clock and not really talking about the issues that matter to to Kansas City voters, the democratic add by David is an drives home a point that a lot of Democrats in the country are talking about healthcare protections for people with preexisting conditions. Democrats believe that the issue of health care and the Republican vote to repeal ObamaCare is a winning issue for them. Not just in the. Democratic parts of the country, but in parts of the country that are that are much more conservative, and that's a driving theme of David's campaign, and it's one she feels as getting hurt an advantage when it comes. Then you were talking about money when it comes to Mr. Yoder how much does he support how much support is he getting from national Republicans also from President Trump? So that was an issue in the final week of the national Republican congressional committee, which funds the most vulnerable incumbents on the Republican side pulled out some of the money in Kansas City, but there's another super Pac the congressional leadership fund which also still airing ads played quite a bit of money still in that district. So iota was trying to say he's he's fighting this race on his own now. But in reality, there is still outside Republican money going into Kansas City, our guest here to talk about the November elections, and particularly what we'll take a look at some of these racist. Both the house and Senate side you can ask them thoughts about specific races. You can ask them overall questions about the November elections two zero two seven four eight. This is a recorded program. No phone calls at this time. Please awesome. For democrat. That's and independence. Two two seven four eight eight thousand two if you wanna post thoughts on Twitter you can do. So at C span WJ is is there something to the iota race that could be played out. A specially to these vulnerable races that you're seeing in the house to me. This Yoder race is emblematic of the challenges that Republicans face holding the house when you have a democrat who no one really knew about about a year ago raising record amounts of money. You see the energy on on the left? That's really at a p suburban districts, and when you look at the battleground of house races, many of them are taking place in these affluent suburban battlegrounds that Republicans once held pretty comfortably. The Yoder district is a district that voted for Mitt Romney by double digits in two thousand twelve but it actually voted for Hillary Clinton in two thousand sixteen. So this is a real bellwether because it's a Romney Clinton district and Democrats are doing very well with those Romney Clinton voters. Let's bring it back to. Closer to home Virginia. Ten you have Representative Barbara Comstock Comstock was a Republican versus Jennifer waxed and talk a little bit about the challenges and some of the parallels. You might be saying this isn't even tougher district for Republicans to hold Comstock is a veteran Republican politicians been able to hold the northern Virginia suburbs. But this is an area not far from Washington DC were anti-trump sentiment is extremely high. And you also have a lot of government workers whenever President Trump attacks a federal government talks about the swamp is talking about federal employees in income stocks district. So she's been writing from behind pretty much us entire race. And there's been a lot of debate within Republican circles the congressional leadership fund superpac hasn't spent a dime and tried to help Barbara Comstock out and that money has been spent by the national Republican congressional committee who still believe they have an outside chance of winning this race. Why did she win considering the district in itself? Why did she win in the first place? What changed? Well, there are a lot of swing independent voters in this northern Virginia. District. I think in two thousand sixteen the assumption was Hillary Clinton was the favorite to win the presidency. So a lot of these swing voters wanted to check they wanted to balance with with a Republican member of congress now Republicans control all branches of government. And I think the desire for a check is helping her democratic opponent, Jennifer Weston. We'll see President Trump traveled to several states up until November election day in order to support candidates talk about his role in all this and the influence that he might have. And if there's evidence that he's having an influence, he's campaigning pretty aggressively. But he's staying in the more conservative sort of small town rural elements of the country. So for example, was in Topeka Kansas Saturday night for a rally Kevin Yoder, by the way, wasn't there. He didn't want to have a Trump shout out at that rally because he knows Trump isn't popular in his district. But in the more small town rural elements of the country. And then frankly, these big Senate battlegrounds that are taking place in conservative states, North Dakota, Missouri, Indiana. Hannah montana. You're gonna see a lot of President Trump. And that's where Republican officials. That's where the White House wants to position it. Josh cross our is with us. He's with national journal covers these elections that we've been talking about services, their political editor and the first call from you comes from California. This is on our line. Democrats Democrats Stephanie Hello, go ahead. Good morning. Fan. I believe that the Republican bump is a temporary. We though the cavenaugh. I believe that the Democrats are gonna come out like like it was the presidential year because we do have to stand up that we do need to put a check on this president. And it's a lot going on that we don't agree with that. Everyone's scared, and there's Republicans that want us to come out and win. So I believe all of this hoopla about the Republicans are closed this bad the other. I don't believe that they're going to maintain control of the house. And I and I do believe that the Senate is going to change as well. I think that the the electoral college is put Trumpian and as a result, we got Cavanaugh. But I I do believe that the Democrats are Dennis step up to the plate. And because we.
