He was the villain. Everybody hated. Kristie Smith was one of the reporters who broke this story of Martin Strel Lee's arrest in 2015. She says that over time, the two fell in love and the scrolling is simply misunderstood. He's just a very, very eccentric person. It doesn't play well in public, especially in a negative light. He is phenomenally intelligent and charismatic, but also has no emotional intelligence and very little common sense and is very awkward.

"Who supported impeachment again most defections from the same party in any impeachment ever but also less than five percent of the entire caucus at the same time. Were you surprised by the number and were you surprised by any of the ten republicans. Obviously much has changed since last impeachment. Twenty nineteen when zero republicans voted in favor of impeachment. Now we have ten. So what what what change and were you surprised. This is very hard to even talk about this because when you say it's the most republicans ever those people from the other parts of impeachment and talk about a small sample size and in part that's sizes completely because richard nixon would have had to face an overwhelming impeachment. Vote where he to actually faced that he just left before that happened. And then you say ten is a lot but it's such a small percentage of republicans doing the right thing in the fate in response to the uncovering of corruption in the face of an assault on their place of work were their lives were at risk their staffs were at risk instill small number voting for it is alarming on so many levels about where we are as a country where the republicans are. Is there one that surprising. It's liz cheney for sure like this is a someone who was an a-plus forty trump district someone who is has designs on a even more prominent role within the party there in the senate or running for something maybe run for president one day but the she is she's a chain she is a member of the republican royalty in for her to break not just with trump but with her other members of leadership is a big deal and it gives gave cover to a lot of these other republicans who were also in it districts that most of them are in districts trump won somewhere in More narrow wins by trump. But it gave some other people covering i think if the number was ten which is a small number but if listening had not said she was going to support this number being closer to three or four i. I was pleasantly surprised by ten because of the way this republican party isn't because of the political incentives they have and they operate within because like you know most of these people up every every one of them. Every one of the ten has to worry about a primary challenger from the right at best at worst as you said they have to worry about. Harm coming to them in their families right. Got the the guy from michigan. Just his is wearing body armor. Now peter mahar right and In addition to that jason crowe democrat from colorado said that he talked to a number republicans who wanted to vote for impeachment but said they couldn't because they were afraid for their families so this is it is it is of course like the least they can do the right thing to do to vote for impeachment. I get that. But i wouldn't underestimate the risk to these members of voting for impeachment And the fact that the ten did that. I was actually. I was a bit surprised that we that we got all the way up to ten even though they were threatened even though their lives are threatening to happen at the capitol. I just thought i don't. I don't have much faith in this version of the republican party. Not just because they're cowards. But also because like like you said that. I think they're probably worried about their safety. Which if you are worried about your own supporters kill abeer in the wrong party to look down at the tiger. You chose to ride. I totally totally agree with that totally agree now. House minority leader kevin mccarthy didn't whip this vote meaning that he didn't lean on republicans to vote against impeachment. He told everyone to vote their conscience. He also was critical of trump and tried to weasel out of this with the censure resolution. Why do you think even for mccarthy that is sort of a big deal because he has been one of trump's most loyal foot soldiers henchmen. You wrote in the message box. Today he was once upon a time curing starbursts for donald trump. What from starbursts to censure resolution on the floor the kevin mccarthy stories of what happened. What happened with kevin mccarthy. I think the primary driver with kevin mccarthy here is money since the us on the capital. A number of major. Us corporations has said there are no longer going to make donations to the members of congress who voted to the election. Now that is almost all of kevin mccarthy's caucus and so he and we'll talk about mccallum but separately but both of them are trying to. I think show the other part of the party not not the rabbit. Right-wing base for the party but the corporate wing that funds the rabbit wing base that they couldn't get it and they're going to offer them an on ramp to reopen donations. I can only imagine kevin mccarthy sinking. We ends great chance to take the house. Democrats really good at grassroots fundraising were. We're really good at raising large donations. From rich people corporations for a super pacs i imagined the calls from the super pacs the national public congressional committee to their typical to their donor base of Not well since then and so. This is the way to give these companies a or these donors a path back to supporting republicans is my guess. I think it's money. I also think it's the politics of the house races in twenty twenty two like you know. Republicans have a too good of a chance to take back the hottest and twenty twenty two partly because of redistricting control a lot of redistricting. They'll redraw the map so that is unfavorable to democrats and yet you know. Mccarthy has a bunch of republicans in districts that are pretty evenly divided That we had one in two thousand eighteen and then they took back and twenty twenty. So like say your david validation in california who took back seat in in twenty twenty that republicans last in two thousand eighteen or say that your mike garcia right who beat kristie smith in the california twenty-fifth another very closely divided district. The democrats can easily win or should be able to win so like either. You have two of those incumbents who You know. Valejo voted for impeachment Mike arcia voted to overturn the election. They took different votes. But either you get those you get those members primary from the right which makes the general election republican candidate weaker because they're farther to the right in pretty even district or you get a republican member. Who is you get an incumbent who doesn't get a primary challenge but is now unpalatable to a broader electorate..

"Next question is what to do about his accomplices namely the one hundred and forty seven republican house members and eight republican senators who voted to block certification of the election. Just hours after a violent mob tried to do the same thing by force. This group includes senators. Josh hawley and ted cruz and the number one and two house. Republican leaders kevin mccarthy and steve scalise so crews and holly are already facing calls to resign or be expelled. Which would require a two thirds. Vote of the house and the senate which is a steep. Climb to get that many republican votes much like Impeachment and conviction in the senate. What what if one hundred senators is like. Yeah boot ted cruz yet. We're in like unity. Unity caucus yeah. That would be funny. Just just at gruza josh. How what are some of the other ways. These assholes are being held accountable. I mean look like in some ways these guys drive me most crazy like cruise holidays because they know trump lost the election. They know they're lying and they're just doing it. Because they wanna run for president and so i. i love that. Everyone's calling on them to be expelled. I'd love to see it happen like you john. I'm skeptical but i do think it helps that like big. Republican political donors. Mentors for each of them are calling them out there doing so publicly their editorial boards in their states or calling on them to resign you trump has seemingly been immune to some of these political forces. I don't think that's true for ted cruz. I don't think that's true for josh hawley. I think you should treat them like pariahs. may be long term. They will be able to suck up to the maga base enough in twenty twenty four nomination if trump doesn't run again. Consider me a little skeptical because at a minimum. That support is going to be split between the pump. Eos the tom. Cotton's the don juniors of the world But we'll see. But i do think that you know this is a thing that can't be memory hold. I wouldn't be cosponsoring. A bunch of bills with josh hawley. Ted cruz going forward. I would treat them like pariah. Yeah i think it's very important. I think what's been clarifying in the last week. Is i think for a long time. The prestige elective office has been used to wash off the stink of the anti-democratic fishes dick intellectually dishonest. Right wing shit coming out of republican leaders. And i think for the first time the stink is kind of washing off the prestige like we see a major corporation. We won't donate to these people even though it has been our practice to donate to both sides. I think that's really important coming for their money is really important in not letting corporations off the hook. Who simply say oh. We donate to leaders of both parties. Obviously it's all a fucking nesting doll of shit like that. We live in that that. That's so important that like corporations just flooding with their packs in their donations to both sides is how these politicians get. Elected is very sad. But i think that that's important The other thing. I i saw a there is an effort among democrats in the house to not work with republicans who voted after the siege. And i think that that's really important. I remember you know when. I worked hillary clinton. The senate You know she was very proud that she had sponsored bills with. Virtually every republican. But the one she wouldn't do it with was with saxby chambliss because he ran one of the most despicable campaigns of against max cleland that anyone had ever seen and it was a point of moral pride to not work with somebody who'd be willing to do that and i think Making sure that what these people did has consequences In every way possible. Is i think really important because i agree. I think expulsion is very very difficult and Not really possible. Well it's it's difficult any circumstance and difficult in the senate in the house. It would basically get rid of most republicans. I mean this is. This is what's truly scary. There's a lot of attention rightly focused on josh hawley and ted cruz and a few of the other senators or sort of like new member wing nuts. Although you rick scott was one of them so there originally was six senators because that was who objected to the arizona. One but then there was the late night. Objection by holly to pennsylvania. Which also brought in cynthia luma's of wyoming and rick scott. Who's the head of the national. Republican senate campaign committee also decided that he was gonna vote objection to yeah also. Just re elected ronna romney to head the are even though she's been like the chief propagandist of stop the steel. Lie so yeah. They've learned their lessons. But but in the house like kevin mccarthy this a very good chance that man could become the next speaker of the house and he. He objected after the after the attack. Just drives me insane like everyone who objected before the attack. Awful of course but like the idea that you could be the target of that attack. Go through that. Walk back into that chamber after everything that just happened and basically finish the job that the mob wanted to do by force tried to block the certification of the election is unconscionable. I think that the problem obviously in the house is like that's where you see the the fruits of gerrymandering really flowering and in growing like the the worst crazy people in politics are are in the house in districts that they will never ever lose unless they cross donald trump. But like that. So that's why. I'm especially hard on people like josh hawley and ted cruz in scott. Because they're statewide. Elected officials are more powerful. They should know better because they're educated relatively intelligent people. I think some of these house members you have to wonder how much of this stuff they genuinely believe. Because they're kind of not altogether there but yeah it's it's it's ugly. I mean ken mccarthy knows better he does know better. He knows better coward. He knows better. He's an in but he is in a bright red district he wins by you. Know sixty six sixty seven percent with six Is more worried about a primary And he has shown himself to be a completely valueless weasel. Was you know paul ryan without the policy chops. I would go down the list of all the house members. Republican house members who voted in like our five are plus five districts are less and start targeting reality to defeat like mike garcia. Who just beat. Kristie smith here in california twenty fifth like he voted to object. That guy is in a in a in a district. It's almost democratic. There's no way he can survive something like that. Yeah at least a fantastic. She decided to go full naga during impeachment. And just rake in a bunch of you know republican trump donor money and now. She is decided that that's her path. Going forward in perpetuity public politics. And it's it's very sad so one of the biggest consequences for trump's actions on january. Sixth came friday afternoon. The president's personal twitter account was permanently suspended due to the risk of further incitement of violence. Got him guys Trump never never again will we say. Did you see that trump tweet. I say that while not waking up to a dozen of them has been nice..

"Bipartisan outrage over what happened at the U. S Capitol yesterday. But there are some Republicans who continue to be steadfast. And their unfounded claims that the election was rigged. That means a Fisher at the GOP that's been open since Donald Trump's nomination in 2016 is growing even wider. What does that mean going forward for the Republican Party? Well, Dan Schnur is a professor of politics and communications at USC. He's a former Republican strategist is well, Dan. Welcome back to you. Thanks for having me. I really appreciate it. After the mob was cleared out, and Congress finally got down to certifying the election results more than 100, Republican members of the House still voted. Against. They still objected. There are 11 Republican members of the House of Representatives from California. How did they vote? How many of them voted to certify the electoral college votes for Joe Biden? It shouldn't be surprising, given the numbers that you just cited. That only two republic California Republican House members voted, uh, to support the electoral College decision in fairness to other members did not vote. Both had been delayed. Your trip to Washington for covert related reasons, but seven out of the nine California Republicans who did vote Did vote affirmatively to overturn the electoral college results. What is the political ramifications? I mean in California? I think the conventional wisdom has been in California Republicans or a little. A little further to the left than the you know the hard right in other parts of the country. What's the dance that they have to do in this state? Well, it Zaveri very delicate dance of one. It's worth remembering that while California's, of course, become a deep blue state over the years, the remaining Republican bastions for the most part Tend to be very conservative. So most of the Republican House members who voted in favor of the motions yesterday against the Electoral college Are probably not gonna be that endangered in any future election. But is you and your listeners know just back in November for Republicans won back House seats in California that are relatively that are relatively contested. Of those 41 of the four young Kim voted against the motion to overturn the electoral college. Clearly concerned about a general election challenge in two years or next year, actually My Garcia, The Republican just elected up in Ventura County voted to overturn. He already is facing a general election challenge from the candidate he beat in November Kristie Smith, but so this will be a major talking point. In that race, and then the other two Republicans who are just elected David dildo up in the Central Valley and Michelle Steele in Orange County. Neither of them were able to vote for covert related reasons, but young Kim voting for with the electoral college. Mike Garcia voting against with notable decisions there. So it is a It is a tight wire. You know a dance As you say. We do. Dan have a growing problem, though, Right? Apparently your political point of view determines what you believe, um, a good many Republicans believe the election was stolen. All evidence to the contrary, I keep seeing in conservative media today, this unfounded claim that Antifa was behind yesterday's Capitol attack and again all evidence to the contrary. How sustainable is this for for one of America's two major political parties? Well, the key word in that question is the word too. Major political parties. For many, many years, people have asked me about the prospects of a viable third party, the United States and I've always been very dismissive of it for all sorts of reasons. But I wonder if the Republican Party is edging closer to, as Ronald Reagan once said, a time for choosing between those members a significant plurality about 40% of Republicans in the House yesterday. Voted against the motions to overturn the electoral College whether a more traditional Republican Party remains on one side and him or pro Trump Party emerges as well. I'm not yet ready one day later to predict That the Republican Party will split into two officially rather than just psychologically, But I think it's more likely now that did any time in modern American political history. This isn't one day later, though. I mean, we we've seen this coming. I mean, over the course of four years. You see, people just I mean, have been flocking to him because they know his popularity. On. Do you know again with him out of the White House, presumably. In 13 days, maybe even sooner. If some Democrats and House members have their way on Capitol Hill today, what is the trump effect on the Republican Party going forward? Well, we we don't you know, and your point Exactly. Right. You know what happened yesterday was the continuation perhaps the exacerbation of trends that have Been developing over the course of four years, if not longer for Trump and his supporters in the broader Republican Party, But I'll say this during the time between Congress recessing because of the mob violence in coming back in last night. Roughly half of the Republican senators who were going to vote in favor of the investigation the Ted Cruz and called for in other words, voting against the Electoral College. Change their mind. And so what was already a stark choice before yesterday between what will call pro Trump Republicans on one hand and pre Trump Republicans on the other. That line became a lot starker yesterday. And so I think the potential for a more formal split into two separate parties is considerably greater than it was 24 hours ago. Why can't we even agree on fax? Though Dan, It's the confirmation bias thing, right? I want my opinions to be confirmed. On whatever media outlet is available. Is it a breakdown? Do you think of trust in the mainstream media that's been propagated by, you know, talk radio, right.

"President Trump is unhappy with Attorney General William Bars conclusion that there is no evidence of voter fraud that would overturn the election.

Just two years earlier. Bernie bit it with that story. Democrat Kristie Smith concession to Republican Congressman Mike Garcia this week means Republicans will control for the seven seats that Democrats flipped in the Golden State during the 2018 midterm elections. It wasn't enough to win back the house majority for the GOP. But Republicans gain seats and feel prime to take back the majority and 2022 Garcia's victory north of Los Angeles this week, a symbolic for another reason.

Time now for the O'Reilly update message of the day or rhetorical brawl between the radical left and former president Barack Obama. It's all about de funding the police Promoting his book, Mr Obama said, quote. I guess you can use a snappy slogan like defund the police. But You'll lose a big audience the minute you say it. Which makes it a lot less likely that you're actually going to get the changes you want done. The key is deciding. Do you want to actually get something done, or do you want to feel good among the people you already agree with on quote? Well, it didn't take long for the anti cop radical zealots to respond. The always provocative congresswoman, Alexandria, Ocasio, Cortez said, quote. The whole point of protest thing is to make people uncomfortable. Activist take that discomfort with the status quo and advocate for concrete policy changes. Popular support often starts small and grows. The folks who complain protester Man's make others uncomfortable. That's the point on quote from Ms Cortez. Congress woman, Ellen Omar quote. We lose people in the hands of the police. It's not a slogan but a policy demand and centering the demand for equitable investments and budgets for communities across the country. Gets US progress and safety unquote. Of course, the point of view that advocates for de funding the police is insane. And dangerous to you. And Barack Obama is correct some facts to back up my statement. There are about 80,000 law enforcement people in America right now last year Law enforcement killed 14 unarmed black people, 13 men, one woman and most of those Were police involved, as they say. In fact, according to the Justice Department, African Americans commit homicides at eight times the rate of whites and Hispanics combined. In the 75 largest counties of America, blacks commit more than 50% off all violent crime. Though they're just 15% of the population. And remember. Last year, 14 on on black people killed by cops. Rest for violent crimes totaled 1.2 million last year. And the zealots want to defund the police. 1.2 million arrests for violent crime and no cops. So This is crazy. And it's out of control and the media allows it. They don't give you the facts as I just did. There is no epidemic off law enforcement harming black Americans, It does not exist. Period.

Denver's mayor told residents there to stay home and avoid travel over the Thanksgiving holiday, and then he himself got on a plane and flew to Mississippi to see his family for Thanksgiving.

But if Those in power or those delivering the message, I guess don't think it applies to them or don't even think of what they said on how that correlates to their action. I mean, I would if I was in Denver, I would be pretty disappointed that my mayor told me to do one thing and literally hopped on a plane.

It's hard to fathom how the 25th Congressional district race could get tighter. But with new votes counted, it has happened again. The battle for the Santa Clarita based congressional seat has narrowed with just 104 votes separating incumbent Republican Mike Garcia and Democratic challenger Kristie Smith. Garcia has been in the lead for the past few days. But as votes have trickled in the race is getting closer. It's unclear how many ballots remain to be counted in the race for the seat that stretches from the Antelope Valley into Ventura County. The fight for this seat in the House is a rehash of an election that took place. Earlier this year, Garcia defeated Smith and, um, a special election to fill the seat of Democrat Katy Hill, who resigned following allegations of an affair with a staff member. And now turning our attention to the state level, the state capital is turning even bluer. Democrats already enjoyed supermajorities in the California Legislature Slater before this election. Now, it looks like they may be expanding on that, thanks in part to two states Senate seats, which they flipped in what used to be reliably conservative orange be reliably conservative Orange County. KCRW's cherry, Glaser explains. Democrat Josh Newman has declared victory over GOP incumbent Linguine Chang and their rematch for the 29th State Senate district and the victories of Sweet one for Newman in the Thames. In 2016. Newman squeak past Chang to claim the seat, which covers parts of orange, L, A and San Bernadino counties. But Newman was recalled two years later after he voted in favor of raising the state gas tax, and Chang won a special election to replace him. Now, after another nail biter of race, he's heading back to Sacramento. This comes just days after Democrats flipped another seat. Nearby, Political newcomer Dave Men defeated Republican incumbent John Morlock in the race for Orange County's 37 States Senate district, which stretches from Anaheim to Laguna Beach, Kcrw's Cherry Glaser. Morlock tells the Orange County Register. He's already considering running for another job. The spot that's opened up on the O.

That's right. We're thrilled to have with us all the way from the Peach State, the Democrat just elected to fill John Lewis's seat in Congress. States, and they're in a chemo. Williams is also head of the Democratic Party of Georgia. So she knows a thing or two about organizing. That's right. We're going to talk with her about how Democrats have been working for years to turn that state bloom and what's ahead in two pivotal U. S. Senate races. That will likely determine the balance of power in the upper chamber. First guy, as we've been saying for weeks, this election was not going to be settled on election day, and we were right. We have been following all these outstanding races, including several congressional seats, the Democrats were successful and flipping to blue and 2018. And are still on razor's edge. What are you watching most closely right now? Well, I think we're all watching with what's happening in Orange County just really interesting set of results so far there We've seen two Republicans on track to flip a congressional seats there, Michelle Steele and Young Kim while at the same time to Democrats flipping state legislative seats, so I think it's it's you know, very interesting two parts to the results. Orange County, of course, was the home of the blue Wave and 2018 a lot of resentment against President Trump. And I know kind of you've been looking into the numbers and talking a party folks that in that county, it's just been fascinating to see, I think a result that not many of us expected Republicans gaining back seats in this election. Yeah, although I feel like we're having all these conversations and our guests, we can talk to her about this about like whether Democrats do as well as they were. You know, we all thought they were going to. I mean, let's be clear. These were some of these stretch district's for Democrats. They were very close races, even in 2018 and You know, the results aren't in on all of them. I mean, definitely. I'm hardly Ruda did concede this week in the Huntington Beach seat to Michelle Steele. And so we know that and we're watching that girl Cisneros, but for example, for their north in L, A and Ventura counties, you know, Mike Garcia had one that special election to fill out Katie Hills term. Kristie Smith looks in a good position there and, Yeah, I mean, I think Orange County I mean, the reporting I did this week. I was about how You know, Democrats celebrated very heartily. After 2016. Hillary Clinton flipped the county for the first time since 1936, a Democrat won. They did very well in 2018. But what it's really turned into was a battleground place, right? This is a truly purple County now, and I think that I talked to the heads of both the California parties, Republican and Democrat. For once. They agreed on something. They were like. This is gonna be hard work for us moving forward, no matter whether you're Republican or Democrat, and I think it just speaks to the changing demographics, but also the fact that you know, we as much is a lot of America is in these very divided places. There are still these pockets of purple, right, and I think look big picture. As you say. The long term trend is the congressional map in California is trending blue right there. Seats that we talked about 5 10 years ago as battle grounds. I'm thinking about the city of San Diego suburbs of of Sacramento, Coachella Valley Palm Springs that now those seats are off the map. You know Raul Ruiz on the barren Scott Peters. They don't They're safe. They're all kind of off the grid in terms of battle District's Yet Orange County as you as you know, when you talk to the heads of both parties, they're really digging in for kind of entrenched political warfare for the next few election cycles, and I'm curious, and I don't know if you got this talking to Rusty Hicks, the head of the State Democratic Party. But like what's the long term play for Democrats? If Donald Trump is not kind of in the picture as a foil? Yeah. I mean, I think that one. I mean, we didn't talk about that. Specifically, I will say that say that, you know, looking at, say, congressional District 50, Which is the one that Duncan Hunter had to resign after being indicted or actually, Yeah, He did resign right eventually. But you know, this is the Democrat who had challenged him. Amar companies are went up again against your Elissa, formerly the richest man in Congress. And this was this is I think the Republicans like a 10 point advantage in that district, right? Cos ours within a few points. I mean, maybe it's closer to 4 to 5 now, but it's Away closer than Democrats would have expected even a few years ago. And I do think that, you know, talking to Rusty Hicks, the Democratic chair about that he's saying, you know to have somebody like companies are with that name in that district, which is historically so white and Republican. Is a good sign for them. But you know, as we've seen nationally, you got to keep working for it. You can't just pack your bags and go home after the election on guy think that that's gonna be the real question. What is the organizing? Gonna look like in these places in the two years before the next congressional races and can either party get a leg up by really, you know, staying President focused? Yeah, I think that's gonna be something to watch there..

What do you saying there? Do? We have many numbers in that district at this point? Yeah, we do have some numbers in that district. With just about 17% of the precincts reporting TJ cocks, the Democrat incumbent actually, trails David valid ao about 45% to 55% So again ah, valid ao taking at least in early on early lead in that in that race, you know this is a rematch from 2018. It was really close last time so close, in fact that valid Ao was initially declared the winner on election night. And then, then Cox would narrowly narrowly won. It includes parts of Kings County, Fresno to Larry current counties. And you know, Clinton actually carried that county in 2016, but valid. L was reelected in that election, So it just shows you how split that particular district is, and I think it could be Kind of Ah, harbinger of where the Central Valley is going as more people moving another race. We're keeping a close eye on is a congressional district 25. That was a seat. That was a pickup for Democrats two years ago, and then Katie Hill resigned. Mike Garcia Republican picked up that seat in a special election. He's running again, as he did in that special against Democrat Kristy Smith. In that seat in northeastern Los Angeles County. What do you see? So right now, Kristie Smith has a 60% of the vote to Mike Garcia's 40% again very early numbers, but so that would indicate that perhaps it might be a very competitive race.

I talked to Mike Garcia. Who is a very strong supporter of president trump? And he appreciates the federal government's response so far. Kristie Smith says that it's been scattershot and that we need to be investing more in testing and tracing cases but there are also a lot of local issues. That bubble up here.

No Republican was gonNA vote for impeachment except for just a mosh And that's the only one I can think of and I think he's actually actually left the party anyway. Independent now or something I think so. I'd have to double check on that but like I. I really didn't think I mean I thought it was nice. That will I heard was at least asking thoughtful questions but to you know he. He's it's just an interesting argument that you can vote against the impeachment but disagree with some of the policies and behavior. Yeah and I think the policy is the key word there because you can't impeach the president because you don't like his policy but if it's illegal he goal then you must and so I just think it's a weird argument Because he didn't go into any details about like I would expect a thoughtful quote unquote Republican like will heard to to go into an explanation about This is the evidence I didn't see any of course didn't talk at all about obstruction which is a clear Violation of the constitution obstruction of Congress article. So it's just it's it's an odd position to take especially if you're not running again right. Yeah maybe it's more investment in his Home doormats that would be filled with dog shit from his locals something when it goes back to flaming minks dog poop bags so you know I gotta live here also so maybe not. Now where's he from again. Did you say I don't remember. Oh let's see her. Yes sorry she is. I think it's a swing district. Okay maybe less than maybe but still poop well heard He represents but we do. District stretches five hundred fifty miles from San Antonio to El Paso Along the US Mexican border. He's forty two years old. I'm older than him all that time. A Life Yeah. Twenty third district in Texas Republicans. Twenty fifteen parents Maryalice and Robert Educated at Texas am all right. Sounds good all those things. Threes from these. He lives in the district. Yeah There was a little bit of a kerfuffle twitter. Kerfuffle this week when Bernie Swin Chunk Wieger said that he was Brian. Hi Katie or winger. Is that how you set. I don't remember I just know I have honestly. I have no idea how to say any part of his name. I just know what he looks like in who he is. And I you don't have. Ty T. Chung on any and he he came out and said that Bernie Sanders had endorsed him and everybody blew up because he's got a history. We've seen some pretty nasty things about women as recently as twenty thirteen and so the argument being. Hey we welcome open arms if you have if you're apologetic and you want to be a Democrat cool and you can have a show host a show and everything but to run for Congress especially in a district. You don't live event and especially Katie Hill seat bridge too far and so there was so much online outrage that Within the same day Bernie Sanders said. I'm not I'm withdrawing endorsement. That was wise of him. He I'm like I thought he didn't in a in a kind way to that so interesting though because when I think of him I think of you you know the young Turks being incredibly to the left rice and he did help a lot with like the election of the squad and more progressive stuff But like there's just other candidates there's another candidate running in that district have to look her up real quick. Who's never said anything like that? And so when it come you know when it comes down between that and that And then I just don't think that that's just an endorsement. You even want to get close to So let me see who's running for Katie Hills. Old Seat Besides Chink you guys see the article. That Jackie Mao recently where she was like this is is far from over like this whole bench porn thing is going to ruin my life. Katie Hill Yeah. I did not read an article. No California's twenty fifth. It looks like that's where Popadopoulos is running. Oh God God Oh Papa. DOC's running for hurled seat growth are you so it's night is running in the special election march third which is the same as our Primary to replace Katie Hill but he's not cleared the Republican field because Popadopoulos Is running for that seat Navy veteran Mike Garcia and Lancaster City Council member Angela. Underwood Jacobs are in both declared their candidacies before he'll resign. One announced Democrat State Assemblywoman. I'm Kristie Smith has earned the backing of Katie Hill as well as other Democratic leaders and members of Congress. He'll tweeted Wednesday. That Smith is the only one you can keep it blue and the only one the community deserves so. That's who I was thinking. I was Christy Smith. She said she phoned Smith before resigning to make sure she would run and she said to the to the guys boys please be gentlemen step aside. She's got this that's what he'll tweeted cool. Yeah I'm what I'm for would. Katie Hill wants totally same. So that's what's happening with With that twin California's twenty-fifth should be an interesting race special election march third which are going to bring a lot of people out because that is the presence primarily.
