"Care Act or invalidated more than thirty million Americans would become uninsured. So that's one example of some of the stakes. I you know, as a g I think we should be. I think to withdraw from this lawsuit because I think we should be working to expand access to affordable health insurance coverage. I. In wisconsin. I would be an advocate for expanding Medicaid, which is something. We ought to do. Anyway, particularly in the midst of an opioid epidemic. We'd be able to cover about eighty thousand Wisconsin it's under Patrick here. Which means more people would have the coverage they need to pay for treatment. I mean, actually saved Wisconsin about one hundred ninety million dollars a year that can be put towards other uses like expanding access to treatment or reducing premiums. That's a policy that I'm I'm an advocate for explain a little bit about the the relationship between the different parts of estates government is. So let's say Scott Walker was reelected. And so there was a Republican governor what's the relationship between the governor's office and the attorney general's office. How does that work in in states with elected? Jeez. It varies state to state. But in Wisconsin, it sort of depends on the context. So when you're talking about bringing enforcement actions enforcement of environmental laws or enforcement of consumers catch. Laws or overseeing an investigation conducted by the division investigation. There. The G is pretty time. This Nucci is independent and an access as appropriate the only influence there that that the governor has is that the governor is involved in setting the budget. But then there are there are other areas where there's more interaction. So if a state law or state policy is challenged in the courts, typically, the G defense state agency state statutes, the G does that that's one eighty reasonably defensible paces himself. So there you'd be working together. Another area is to bring challenge against federal law policy in Wisconsin. Aging have approval from either the governor or from one of the houses of the legislature to authorize that action. So they're you'd be working together again, and then the other role that I think is is an important one in the office is an advocacy role. So advocating the policies that are gonna make communities safer and stronger on air. Of course, you're advocating to members the legislature and hoping that the governor signs legislation. So it depends on the context, but in some contexts clearly working together, and and others the office acts independently I also think, you know, there are there are times even in those contexts when at AG certainly might be advocating for different policies and the governor or the governor, for example, may take a position that is not legally defensible so in Wisconsin earlier this year. Governor Walker refusing to call special elections for a state Senate district in state assembly. Right. I'm there. I looked at the statue. It was clear I think it was very clear that he had to call elections and should have in there. I think the should've spoken up and said governor Walker you need to you need to call these elections. This is not a legally defensible position. And presumably, then that's true. You know, no matter whether you're the same party or a different party that you know, that that piece of it that making sure that the things that the governor is doing legally defensible would be something you would continue to do. That's exactly right. And and that the approach should be the same, regardless of which party that the governor is a member of you know, I think the g needs to be independent and a watchdog..

"This segment. I am here with Josh call who is the democratic nominee for attorney general in Wisconsin. Hi, josh. Yeah. Thanks so much for joining me today start with just a little bit of background. Tell me a little bit about kind of your background coming into this in. Why are you running for attorney general this year? So I grew up in Oshkosh and onto lack I grew up in family that was deeply involved in public service. My mom was a prosecutor and elected official Bill was police officer, Nina. Public school teachers lack and I had the opportunity to spend part of my career as a federal prosecutor in Baltimore, prosecuted, drug, traffickers, gang members movers. I've also gone to court to challenge laws that restrict access to voting. I'm I'm a dad, I'm a husband and money for twenty general because I want my family in families across Wisconsin to live in a state that's safer and stronger than run track for right now. And there's a lot that affective attorney general can do to help us move in the right direction on a number of issues. But I don't think we've had effective leadership on current agent. Sue, what are some of those issues that you think are coming up right now, and that you'd like to make your priority one area where I think we need more effective leadership is when it comes to fighting crime and getting Justice for Wisconsin nights. So we have an opioid epidemic that has been devastating for families across the state. We haven't really nine hundred opioid overdose. S in Wisconsin last year, forty percent increase just as compared to twenty fifteen and I think we need to do more to fight that, dammit. I think we need to ensure on forcing efforts are targeting large-scale traffickers for sending drugs like heroin and in math across county lines and state lines. But I don't think he does significantly expand access to treatment. And I think we AG is going to finally be serious about the pharmaceutical companies accountable for their role in the epithet are AG also mishandle Wisconsin's backlog of untested rape kits in his first year in office received a millions of dollars to address that backlog over four thousand kids that needed tested. But after a current AG had been in office for two years only nine of those kids had been tested, and we'll progress is finally made what that was handling this backlog has meant is that there's been a delay in getting Justice for survivors and dangerous criminals have. In the streets longer than they should have. I'm so I think we AG understands that limiting that backlog should've been a priority from day one and that getting Justice for vibe as a sexual assault. I needs to be a priority going forward and then on school safety. I think we need to do more as well. My my opponent has suggested that we consider arming teachers criticized for school zones. And I think what we need are some time and sense gun safety measures like universal background checks down on stocks. I'd also like long term funding for mental health programs in our schools. I'm so those are some of the criminal Justice issues that are important ones in this race. Wisconsin has a lot of races that have been getting a lot of attention. Obviously the governor's race that was first district congressionally. But I think that people often overlooked attorney general races don't think about them as much so as you're going around and talking to people knocking on doors, you know, working with your team to events are people aware of this. Position. Are they aware of this race what's kind of the reception that you're getting I think there's no question that, you know, Senate races governors races tend to get I'm more attention than Agee's races. But I also think that you know, this is a race in which people are tuned in because there are some critical issues at stake. And so one of them is that my opponent is a leader right now along with Texas's AG of a lawsuit that's seeking to invalidate the Affordable Care Act. If that's Ceuta successful protections will be eliminated for people with preexisting conditions. Young adults lose the guarantee that they can remain on their parent's coverage until they turned twenty six Congressional Budget Office estimates that the major component of the Affordable.

"Violence, and we we were on the south side of Chicago drove up on a corner, and we saw about we saw two boys on the corner. And there were about eleven or twelve years old, and as we wrote up to stop on the corner. The instinct of the boys was to duck and put their hands up as if we were going to shoot from the truck we were writing in and that was an illustration of the trauma that some of these young people go through who live in neighborhoods where violences normalized what gun violence is normalize. We have to do something to get resources to deal with the trauma caused by. Normalized violence because individuals like the two boys that we encountered are just a few days ago, if we don't deal with the trauma that they've endured that leads them to believe that any car that pulls up to the corner gonna roll down the window and shoot their direction. They can evolve to thinking that it's a normal thing to have gun violence, and in their neighborhoods and makes more susceptible to becoming a perpetrator of that same type of violence. I was a juvenile prosecutor nicer on both sides of juvenile court child protection side where kids were brought in after having been abused or neglected by their family members or others delinquency side as well. After having brought in kids for committing crimes. And when kids were brought in on the delinquency side, we would do background checks and oftentimes the kids have been in the building earlier not from having committed a crime, but having been. Victim of abuse and neglect its representation of the cycles of violence that exist in in certain neighborhoods that to lead to a higher propensity towards certain individuals engaging in violence, and we need them break.

And and seeing moms from throughout the country, and certainly throughout the state having their voices heard coming down to Springfield, making sure they talked to all this latest everybody, no matter, whether they're democrat Republican, independent can appreciate the voice of a mom, and it's a it's a powerful group. That's that's come together to advocate commonsense gun laws, and then it's been bolstered by a powerful group of young people who've who've come to the table high school students who said enough is. Enough, you know, from the park land kids, his kids on the south side of Chicago with come together to say enough is enough these voices, collectively, I believe I'm gonna lead to change. And I I have enjoyed collaborating and look forward to collaborating with moms demand action, and and the voices of the young young activists as well to say enough is enough and work to make sure that we stop some of this miles. Is there anything else that you want to make sure that we talk about today? Well, yeah. Most certainly I think each election presents the voters with a choice, and there's some elections where candidates similar on a lot of issues, but in this election and mentioned before there. There so many differences between my Ponant. And I usually strategically has a candidate you don't want to mention the name of your opponent. But in my case, I've taken a different approach because I think it's important that people know who Erica herald is and and one of the issues that she's been clear about is a woman's access to reproductive health care that she would deny women access to reproductive healthcare. Even in the case of rape, and incest. She's got very extreme views, and unless people hear about them, they won't they will assume that she doesn't have these views. She indicated she could not way in one way or the other on the equal rights amendment. One would assume that she would not only way in but she would wait in favor. She has not given any such indication. So, you know, I think it's important to to know the differences between the candidates and Finally I think there's a difference in terms of experience. I've practiced.

"Can you talk a little bit about the importance of the attorney general role in protecting things like healthcare and pre existing conditions. Yeah. It's very personal to me for two reasons. One you mentioned I am cancer survivor to I'm the son of a man who served as a community physician and who never turn back patient because of their inability to pay he believed in healthcare, human, right? I'm here today because I took advantage of healthcare coverage in and the opportunity to embrace preventative healthcare and be the beneficiary of early detection with regards to my prostate cancer and having that healthcare coverage. So I can have surgery that removed of the cancer from my body. If one similar to me where you know, I had prior indications that I may have challenges with my prostate would fall out. Of having healthcare coverage and and then subsequently gain healthcare coverage but not with coverage for preexisting conditions. If they could be there could be a situation where I wouldn't have the benefit of of coverage to to to cover my surgery, which is an expensive surgery, and their families all across the state and all all our of all across our nation who have been burdened with healthcare costs that, you know, render them in in in debt that just can change the dynamics for a family and right now in Texas district court there Republican attorneys general who are suing remove protections for pre existing conditions, and and the natural defendant would be the federal government represented by the department of Justice. But Jeff Sessions is backed away from defending this lawsuit tentative the democrat attorneys general collectively who've stepped forth. To to defend it, including Lisa Madigan. It is there. There's I was reading a newspaper article that suggested tried to suggest that I was fearmongering by by talking about access to healthcare being under siege. And that it doesn't that that twenty general's office has nothing to do with it. And that can be that can be further from the truth. It's right now they're engaged in litigation to try to protect to preserve the protection for preexisting condition. Gun violence being an issue that's important to voters not just in Chicago. But in Illinois in general, could you talk a little bit about what you'd like to do elected on good balance? Sure. First off when I talk about it. I I don't talk about it from just having seen stories in the paper or on the news. And I've I've had to come home to my kids on several occasions after there's been gun violence directly outside of my home. Not in the neighborhood, not around the black, but directly in front of my home, and those are difficult conversations to have I've worked in the legislature to try to advance policy to deal with the gun violence in our communities, I've focused on the repeat gun offenders and dried plan to make sure that we hold individuals who have either committed violent acts or of illegally possessed guns on our streets. And who after being convicted the Loudon get another legal gun and hit the streets with him try to hook trying to hold those people accountable have worked on legislation to try. To make sure that we can prevent the trafficking of guns into the hands of people who should not have them. I've worked on legislation to ban bump, stocks and trigger cranks. So that's very important. Now, the attorney general's office can be involved in several ways they can advocate for the passing commonsense. Reforms to our our laws dealing with guns, including gun dealer certification, the attorney general can also engage as new York Attorney General does and try to help with tracing guns that have been you utilized in in in crimes, and that's something that I would like to explore that's not currently done being done on a statewide basis in in in the state of an on. But the attorney general's office is also engaged in making sure resources are directed to communities into individuals who are who have been victim. Demise? And I think it's important for us to examine our definition and expanded definition of who is victim just a few days ago. I I was riding in a car with a campaign, volunteer, who's a retired police officer who works with kids in neighborhoods of high.

"Heavy one. This is Kelly with two brads talking politics. I'm here with my co host Sophie, hey, Sophie. Hey, Kelly and joining us today is my state Senator and democratic nominee for attorney general in Illinois Kwami role high Kwami, how will you aids? Thanks so much for joining us. Thank you. So I have a pretty good understanding of your background. But maybe for listeners who aren't familiar could you just little bit about who you are. And while you're running for attorney, general sure, I'm go- I flung resident of Illinois the son of Haitian immigrants settle in the state in about nineteen sixty am lawyer of twenty five years father, two college age kids, and I've been a legislator for the last fourteen years place, Barack Obama and the state Senate fourteen years ago on November six I worked in the legislature on. A wide variety of issues, including working with the current attorney general Lisa Madigan on on consumer protection issues on making sure their resources for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault. Worked on voting rights protection at work on issues to try to deal with the habit of gun violence that we've dealt with not only in the city of Chicago. But throughout throughout the state, and you know, a wide variety of issues trying to make sure we keep our water ears safe. And I'm running for attorney general because I think there's never been a time where the position has been as essential as as it is today, we see twenty general throughout the country acting both collectively and individually as last line of defense against sort of unconscionable acts coming from the Trump administration and and also advocating for. For people within the individual states on on a broad number of issues, including as I engine before consumer protection victims resources, make sure making sure there's advocacy for individuals and with regards to their utility rates and violence prevention and a wide range of issues protection of healthcare, which is one it's a particular to to me. Run a state Senate campaign in Illinois before which is you know, a campaign. I imagine what be in a smaller area more lately focused and now you're running a statewide campaign for twenty general. Can you talk a little bit about how the experiences been different while? Yeah. Well, impart, I you know, I have to admit I'd had it a little bit easier. I suppose, and I like to believe it's because I've done my job as state legislator. But I haven't really been uncontested much in my local legislative district, and I wanna truly wanna believe because I've done my job, and that I've run towards difficult issues not away from them, and then have taken leadership on a broad range of issues that matter not only people within my district, but throughout the state running statewide, even if I had more competitive rates races at the district level is dramatically different. First off I came out of the very competitive. Mccray. Primary and like to say we had an embarrassment of riches that were eight of us altogether. Vying to replace Lisa Madigan as the state's attorney general. And and I think better for having had the intense competition that we had in the in the primary I think it's prepared me well for the battle in the general election, and it it helped me really focus on how important it is to straight for people. What is at stake here? I'm like the primary where our views were. Similar if not exactly the same on a vast Ray of issues, you probably confined to candidates as as different as Erika Harold and myself are and so, you know, trying to straight that for the citizens throughout the state is an important challenge. There are a lot of people who can approach the elections not knowing who either Erica hero or Kwami. Raoul are and. Presume that you've got a man running against a woman. The woman candidate would be for people rights amendment would protect the women's right to choose would be for commonsense gun gun laws, you know, would oppose the confirmation of Brett cavern. But that's not the case with my Ponant. So you mentioned that healthcare is important. You are a cancer survivor yourself..
