"And Joe Biden, my mind, I can't stop thinking about that video that we showed you guys yesterday where Biden is being interviewed by believe a Los Angeles Times reporter, and he starts talking about. How young people keep telling them that? They've got a tough. And he says give me a break, and the entire audience starts laughing at young people who are going through, you know, maybe not the same issues that Biden went through when he was young. But there are severe economic frustrations that young people are facing today and to minimize it. And just kind of brushing aside as give me a break, it's so incredibly insulting. But that's the kind of rhetoric that does sit well with some democratic voters. Disappointing us also the problem with when we have low turn up from young people. I mean, really I think if young people went on voted, we would have a different result. And I feel that in the general population. We don't have the turnout that we need to have. And as you said, these people who have financial interests and are more secure in their in in in where they are going to go out and vote and we'll see who the candidate is. I mean, I guess I just wanna I just can't imagine. I mean, Trump could win again. But I really hope not I yeah. I hope not as well. I think he's gonna win again. Oh, God grown plea. I mean, I thought the same. I'm sorry. I do the same stakes being made. And no no-one has learned anything from the past election. I see the media propping up Biden who knows I could be wrong. I'm I'm famously pessimistic and to be a little more optimistic. I get that. But what I'm seeing in the way, the media is covering these candidates and the way certain people are being propped up. It's not good. It's not looking good. So we'll see what happens. But of course, we're gonna update you guys as the election develops as these stories develop. And we do have another great Biden story in the second hour, so make sure you're out. All right moving on. The NRA has a new president. And she is not a fan of a freshman lawmaker who ran her campaign specifically on the issue of gun control and one now Caroline meadows is the new president of the NRA. And she believes that Representative Lucy MC bath in Georgia only one because of the fact that she is a black woman. Didn't win because of her actual policy proposals and her platform. So here's what Caroline meadows. Again. This is the NRA president had to say in reference to Representative Lucy MacBeth, quote, it is wrong to say like MacBeth said that the reason she won was because of her anti-gun stance that didn't have anything to do with it. It had to do with being a minority female, and the Democrats really turned out. And that's the problem. We have with conservatives. We don't turn out as well. I think that might be the first person I've ever heard argue that Democrats turn out more than Republicans. Do maybe she was saying that we don't turn out as good as well in life like as a good people in that case. I. Yeah. Maybe. Turn out as well. So I just give you actual data to disprove the ridiculousness that you just heard mic bass district actually leads significantly Republican and went for President Donald Trump in two thousand sixteen MacBeth inched ahead of competitor Republican Karen Handel who has said that she'll run again with fifty point five percent.

And so I believe that leader Pelosi recognizes this Nuys is this desire and the caucus. We certainly have younger leaders and democratic in the leadership elected leadership in our caucus now. And I think that this is something that we are going to continue to see occur over the next several years. I am not going to say that this is just a Nancy Pelosi problem. This is something that all of the Democrats and the caucus as we vote for leadership certainly should keep in mind and recognize the potential in so many of our colleagues. Well, it's not just into Pelosi as you say there are also two other people in their late seventies who are in the democratic leadership right now, do you think at least one person in the three should be somebody that's younger. Well, first of all we've already about it. This is this is happened. I supported a leader Pelosi majority leader or incoming majority leader Hoyer and incoming whip Jim Clyburn, and I have great faith in their leadership. And I believe that they will do an excellent job. We of the American people now in terms of pipeline.

We have not seen or heard from younger women of color in any type of cohort or any significant way. And when I say significant, I mean beyond just one pioneering voice, and now we have there are a few of us under forty serving congress people, you know, younger women of color, and I think that this is a really special moment in our nation's history because when we think about our country and the changing demographics of our country. It's vitally important that all of us are represented. It's clear that representation matters. And the policies we address how we. Approached the job and the perspectives that we bring to the work, and I am so honored to stand on the shoulder is giants who came before me, you know, our election day with fifty years and one day after Shirley Chisholm was first elected to the congress.

So we wrote postcards for a lot of local candidates that were running activists like Sandberg helped propel democrat Lucy MC bath to a win in Georgia's sixth congressional district this year that's a big victory for Democrats in a seat that as recently as twenty sixteen elected a Republican by twenty three points.

District that Republicans pursue in their in their bid to win the Geordie that said a few factors could work in Democrats favor. Demographics is a big one the district could be much better for Democrats two years from now than they are today because the old Republican base and US District is for lack of a better term dying out Georgia's six, for example, is rapidly becoming more diverse and for MacBeth who is herself African American one. Big focus was energizing non white voters. Alabama democratic Representative Terri Sewell campaigned for her. I think that Lucy was really effective in engaging communities that were not had not been engaged before, you know, women voters as well as minority voters, she really concentrated on that. And that really made a difference racist just one demographic challenge. Republicans face for years. Democrats have also steadily been doing better with college educated voters who are concentrated in many suburbs. There's something else that's harder to measure Democrats here. Talk about.

You're both victims of gun violence in different ways into one. I want to start with you. But just asking you to tell your story. The story of my gun violence champion incident, begun going into my senior high school, and we're talking Baltimore. Yes. East? Baltimore just returned from John hockey university, summa job. And while on the bike traveling to my aunt's house, I pick my head up. And I realized I was a gunman at my side. And he asked me. To pick all my stuff. All my belongings. Give them everything. I had a look down on shake my head. But I gave him everything. And if there wasn't enough on. It's only turn around. When he told me turn around. I just knew that this may be my last time turning around. He picked the gun up over my head. Impose the trigger shoveling head. I went down to the ground. And. My body began to go into shock. But then I. I had a little else of Streff vision left, but a whole lot of Streff laughing me. So I got back up got back up wondering looking for help. And now, and of course of me looking for help. I'm stumbling I look up into the borough of another gun this time, it was the borough of the police, and I'm I'm hearing them yelling get the fuck on ground. Get the fuck on the ground, and there's my family and friends and neighborhood members try to come to my defense, they begin to arrest them slamming them on a cause and things of that nature. And the only thing I could really imagine in think about west, please not get killed in front of my my family members girl cousins particular because I can hear them screaming. I was saying a victim.

In many cases, by the police, Matt realizing how this was the norm for us with announcing hood, I just realized I didn't want to become a victim by the police in front of my family ruin that allows you have the police yelling at you threatening your family with arresting family members and people in the neighborhood. But who called paramedics wasn't the cops was it. No, the the police never called a paramedics. Because this what they do around on able hood. So the paramedics was called by.

"Another important thing about Presley is that she's talked in the past about being a survivor of sexual assault. She was in college. And I think that's really important for the fact that one of the criticisms that we've heard about the metoo movements and from an ISM around, you know, sexual assault is that it hasn't been fully inclusive. All though, the metoo movement was initially launched by Toronto Burke, who's also black woman following that. One of the criticisms is that it has not been inclusive to the experiences of women of color. So I think that someone at Presley's level with herbs ability in her. Leadership. It's really important that she's being open about this. And I think that's really admirable. Now. I don't think that women are required to do this. Right. I think that having women where they're paying on their sleeves reshare their personal experiences so publicly it should not be a requirement. But I think that when it is done, especially by a black woman, especially by a woman of color, a woman who's election is historic. You know, I think that that's valuable beyond words, and I from one appreciate it. One of the things that I admire most about Presley is hell unapologetically progressive. She is. I mean, all the women that I've talked about our progressive. Right. But she talks about issues that I haven't heard many leaders at her level discuss. For instance, she's talked about the decriminalization and legalization of marijuana. And you know as spread across the country. She's talked about the need to make sure that minorities are included in profits from that industry. And that isn't something that I've heard often from leaders at her level. I think that because. Of her focus in because of her experiences in her infancy. I think that she's going to bring something very special to the house of representatives. When I imagine I enter Presley in her per Hades, beautiful braids in Ilhan, Omar in her job on the floor of the house in really move all of the intersecting identities that these women bring together, I find it really beautiful in moving. I'm really came forward to this new congress when I think about this beautiful coalition of women the new members the veterans in all their strengths coming together. I'm just beside myself with excitement, you know, they're going to disagree at times, you know, the views and their their styles won't, always align. And they're going to fight in different ways. Nobody think it would be really healthy for us as a party to move to a place where we're all fine with that. I mean, what else can we do, you know? But I've seen these women and I've seen what they can do. And I've seen them in action. And I know the we are in the best hands. So the point I wanted to make with this episode. It's not just about having a majority in the house. Although that's important. It's about who's in majority. The historic number of women. You know, these women have personal experience with gun violence with the pain and struggle of being a refugee, you know, they have personal ties immigration native, American Muslim black lesbian veterans. The intersection of identities of these women going to the house of representatives is so powerful. So so powerful. So here are their names Lucy MC bath Abigail span. Burger Jennifer Ston, Elaine Loria should we stay? It's where she needed to leave Alana, mar Deb Holland, and there's so many more remember those things because I have a feeling you're going to hear from them. I'm believe they're going to transform the country, by the way, if this up so feels incomplete I agree. I want do another segment on women of color, both those who've been elected and also about the electorate, you know, how women of color voted in this past election. When I think about this collection of women. I can barely contain my excitement. I'm so excited to see where we're going. Thank you so much for listening. I hope you enjoyed this episode.

Theresa, and there's a little bit of a delay. So for folks to know tell us a little bit about this win. Because how how how is it that Lucy MC Babbel's able to pull off a win? Where Jon Ossoff could not. Well, the thunder. You hear is the return of the two party system to Georgia. Joy, this is really incredible. You're right to put Lucy MC bath back in the seat where Newt Gingrich and Tom Price. Once held is is really transformational. We plow a lot of field back in the John race. Thanks to organizations like pave it blew flip the six there were people out there going door to door really for a year to make this happen. And then we had this incredible candidate and lucid MacBeth a two-time, breast cancer survivor. This passionate woman who who said, you know, I'm gonna make a difference. I'm gonna take my personal life tragedy and turn it into a mission to serve my community and serve my nation. And she well knows that Jordan is looking down on her and smiling that he is very proud of his mom, and we're very proud to have Lucy. Macbeth representing us in congress is my home district. My mom my dad, and my sister live in the six, my mom and dad and sister all. Campaign for Lucy. So we're very proud is a family that she's now the congresswoman elect with six district. He quickly just tells a little bit too. So that it is your family home district. What is the district? What are the demographics like? Yeah. It's really it's gotten to be more mixed area to cab county is a minority minority majority community, obviously, you have some very fluent predominantly white folks in northern full county. You've got a little mix of everything. But what you do have the Republicans. They are what I like to call business Republicans or more moderate more sensible, non ideolog Republicans. And so they've been very turned off by the Donald Trump era. They've really flatly rejected it and one interesting thing joy, we're going to see in the next few days is white women once again for the state of Georgia disappointed in the turnout for the Democrats got about twenty six percent of women white women voted for Stacey Abrams, which of course, is not where we want to be. But I suspect what we're going to see is that white women all women were turning out strongly for Lucy MacBeth and the six district. And now, we also have Caroline Bordeaux. Who? Forced to run off excuse me who was forced to recount in the seventh district. So we may well be sending two women Democrats to congress in January. And that's interesting Korean because one of the things that we were talking about a previous block was the the coat tails of a Stacey Abrams, an Andrew Gilmour better. Even if they themselves ultimately win in the case of Abrahams her runoff, which is got a chance, obviously. But they had real coattails. And you're starting to see particularly these suburban district even in suburban district that a predominantly white. You are seeing that kind of hard turn against the Republicans. Yeah. I think that's exactly right Lucy. Macbeth is one of my favorite stories, and they were amazing other amazing stories just across the country after last night after Tuesday's nights huge win. But in in this instance, you're right? I mean, stay save rooms was such a strong candidate became very much. I national election for her raise that it really helped the down ballot elections as well. It was high turnout incredibly high turn out in in Georgia. And also, you had Donald Trump as you guys were just discussing was a drag on suburban voters on educated women and also her personal personal story while it was incredibly tragic, it cut through the noise, and she was able to really you saw her passion. You really saw who she was as a candidate..

Sergeant Hillis was on the force for twenty nine years was looking to retire in the next year or so. A more park resident and survived by his wife and his son. It's a horrific scene. And there there is blood everywhere. And the suspect is part of that. And I I I wouldn't I didn't want to get that close in the stirred the scene and possibly jeopardize the investigation. That's been sure county sheriff Jeff dean this morning. The the the body of the down policeman was being transported to the coroner's office. And people were lined up on the freeway overpasses too. I guess just to be there for this officer. Just it's just tragic, and it should not happen, by the way and this is related Republican Karen Handel conceded.

Violence advocate who jumped into the race at the last minute, citing February's mass shooting at Marjory stoneman Douglas high school here on parkland, Florida that let's seventeen people dead now Lucy Macbeth's seventeen year old son, Jordan Davis was fatally shot in twenty twelve by a man who had argued with the teen in his friends about loud music coming from their car.

He was going to do he fired attorney general Jeff Sessions not that. I have a problem with Jeff Sessions, not being the attorney general. But we know the only reason. We wanna keep him. There was because he recused himself and was not overseeing the molar investigation.

"Plus one to avoid a December four th runoff. So the Abrahams campaign is making sure that every vote gets counted. Because right now Brian Kemp St. sits at fifty point three percent if that goes down. Three tenths of a percentage point. If Abrahams has enough votes to bring down the Kemp share of the vote then indeed if it's a not fifty percent plus one that race will go to a December four th runoff. So we await more information they're not until next Wednesday. Do all the counties have to report their initial vote totals. It seems there those are the three big statewide races. We also still have eleven house races that have yet to be called. But. This morning. We were able to see that Karen Handel the Republican congresswoman from Georgia from the Atlanta suburbs area, Georgia sixth congressional district. I'm sure you all remember the special election there between handle and Jon Ossoff, she conceded to the democrat Lucy MC bath Lucy. Macbeth a mother of the movement whose entire political career is around fighting against gun violence because her son some twelve years ago or six years ago when he was seventeen was shot and killed in a gun violence incident, Lucy bath is now going to congress is a congresswoman elect out of Georgia's sixth congressional district. Donald Trump just edged Clinton out of that district back in twenty sixteen. That's why that's special election got so much attention. But it was still until the very end. It looked like the Republicans had that in hand a Michael Bloomberg. And his group every town that fights for gun control. They poured. A lot of money into that race Lucy MC bath gets that concession from Karen Handel on the same day, our country's seeing another mass shooting where that is an issue that is so identified with her political run for office is is poignant to say, the least and the other concession that. We got late last night was Dino Rossi out in Washington. Eight Kim schreier there the democrat. So again, I would just say the two new democratic pickups that got added to our total are women from the suburbs and they're heading into and they're heading into congress. It sort of emblematic of the what the whole storyline was about Tuesday night. So now Democrats have net gain of thirty one seats, and there are still eleven house races to call..

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

"Peoples teaching the one, oh, three news and talk thirteen eighty w. Braces are being called right now. It does not look like Lucy MC bath will take that democratic seat over Karen Handel right now fifty two percent to forty eight percent. We've even got some closer numbers in that. But man, it is that it's been that type of night Ryan now. Yes, it has been Frank millions of Americans headed to the polls today millions had voted early. But with all that effort, we hope that the Democrats will maintain the energy. We did the Democrats did take control of the house. The Democrats did take control of the house in a big way. He had a big way and the Republicans will hold the Senate. Of course, Nancy Pelosi is up tonight, speaking of being victorious, and I mean, some of the things are going to be saved. That means universal healthcare will stay some of the other things will stay obviously, Donald Trump will not have a rubber-stamp anymore. Just to get the things that he wants looks like. All the things that he's gonna he was wanting to do. He's not really going to be able to do now. It is healthy Franklin. You have. Democrats in control of the house. And if it has to be Republicans in control of the Senate because there has to be some compromise. Now, we're going to see what politics ought to look like. Yeah, if it is done, right. The Democrats can blow this completely if they go too far and become too extreme. But if they show that they can govern the house, and they can do the enquiries and get some of answers. They've been trying to get out of this president in a very decent way. Two years is is going to get here really quick. And so they have an opportunity show that they can lead is a flip all of the chairmanships now belong to the democrat. Why do you think that even when you look at the situation that exists right now after tonight's historic election with the Democrats taking the house back? Why did? Why couldn't we have waited to do that supreme court vote? Does it was just it was you gotta give him a little more credit for being a little bit more crafty? This man's sped that process up. He has made two appointments to the supreme court ceiling. It's conservative bent for the next thirty years. And with beta Ginsburg, kind of saying she go hang in there. This next presidential election is going to be absolutely because I don't think she go pass a couple of more years, and he very well may have a third appointment if we don't do something quick day later, Dallas short and Florida voters voted to restore expel and voting rights with amendment number four, and what it means is more than a million people were regained the right to vote, and we're talking about, of course, black Americans were affected predominantly here. And I mean that's gonna be key in the next election in Florida because you saw the margins another million voters on the rolls. We'd have a different election in Florida. We probably have governor Gillam. So that's quite important that that most precious rights will be restored to individuals in that state. And so that's a big win. There are a lot of big wins across the board. Now government will operate the way it's supposed to with checks and balances instead of having one party in control. So again, this wasn't the the win that. Many expected, but it will force our system to work the way it was designed to me there will be bipartisan agreement on things instead of rubberstamps Garo. Greg's what do you feel that? We should have learned from this the Democrats specifically, what should they learn from this election? How to mobilize your base how to speak directly to your base and provide them with the amunition to want to go to the polls we had record number turn out in this election. But we have to understand that there were barriers put up there berries that are still up that we have to remove and it's about the long game. We need new blood new leadership. I'm hopeful the Democrats will make the right decision and not make Nancy Pelosi. Again, the house speaker, we need new blood. We need an energizing movement, and I think that needs new blood waters. I mean, I would love auntie, Maxine, I mean, there are other ideas as well. But I just think we need new leadership to drive the democratic. Party into a new direction. Let's talk about one thing real quick before we finish here right now. Of course, they are reporting with ninety five percent of the vote in Georgia. It does look like Brian Kemp will win this election. He is now at fifty three point three percent to Stacey Abrams forty five point eight percent. The key here is that she did not get the votes in places like savannah that she was supposed to get. She got the big counties in Atlanta metro, but the other black counties that she was expected to get. She didn't get enough vote there. It was very close. Even the ones that she did win. We're very close. And we've seen this time and time again since the Republicans took over leadership, you could it's same message with the last democratic nominee for governor. That is about two hundred thousand votes spread I will say this months ago. The Democrats have got to come over. And it did not happen. Don't appear like it's going to happen tonight. And so it's not just messaging. It's the Oprah should have gone to savannah. Well, we should have fought harder. When the purge begin the cross the cross check system, the taking people names all fifty three thousand held in abeyance. Jess. You know, people who will not allow to vote this systematic disenfranchisement, but probably the biggest game changer in Georgia was the doing away with section five of voters rights Zack where these changes in voting procedures. Do not have to any longer. Be pre cleared by the Justice department. We have no leg to stand on. So when the secretary of state or secretary or local election officials said we're gonna shut down polling places in rural Georgia. So there's only one place to vote and you have the drive nineteen miles. There's no real legal recourse. Okay. Other than run into corn. And sometime that does not result in a good outcome. Gentlemen. Thank you very much for towing the road with us tonight so long when real we got early morning. Yep. Great panel tonight. Frank great panel. Those who called in those who walked in and spent the evening with us at thank you so much for being committed to the cause of. Having your vote make a difference. All right, everybody. Have a good night. We'll see in the morning Franken in the morning on the people station v one zero three we give you back to Joyce little.

"I really do like my clip toothbrush. And I'm sure you will when you get it. Now, there is other stuff going on as well. Luciuk bath is out attacking Karen Handel. Democrats have put some money into this race. I don't know what they're seeing. My guess is that they're trying to get Republicans to freak out and spend some money in this race. The Atlanta suburbs, though are showing a high turnout. I suspect that everything is okay there. But Lucy MC bath is going after Karen Handel and one of the attacks that she's making is on pre existing conditions now Karen refused to sign onto supporting the ObamaCare repeal unless pre existing were preexisting conditions were protected and she's cosponsored HR eleven twenty one that would protect preexisting conditions. So that if ObamaCare is repealed the pre existing provisions, preexisting condition provision won't. But you know, McGrath is out there doing everything she can to attack. And I think what she's trying to do what MacBeth is trying to do is she's trying to get people get cured handle on defense because Karen handles it has had MacBeth on defense over this voter registration is you Lucia MacBeth as you'll recall has lived into the sea, your husband, she's described as a permanent resident of Tennessee. And while they were living into the seas. She was taking a homestead exemption and Cobb County, those local sorts of things matters. And she's trying to come up with something to force Karen Handel on defense. I don't know that will work now. Let's go back to the phones. Rhonda from Grayson, you're up next. Welcome. I just wanted to say that I think that do you? Runoff. We'd benefit Stacey Abe is because the democratic basis so fired up, especially as African Americans. They are very fired up and Republicans do have some concern about that. I do think though that you got to go back to the Saxby Chambliss race. His last time running for the Senate when you had a situation where it was forced with Jim Martin. I believe it was forced into a runoff and Republicans were able to outpace Democrats. It will certainly be closer. The Democrats certainly are more fired up, but historically Republicans have an easier time getting Republicans to go back for a runoff, one of the reasons is this the Abrahams campaign has somewhat premised her election on an early vote absentee ballot model that Republicans tend to us and she's doing a very good job of it. But she has had to do it over a six month period. This would only be a one month run. Off cycle. And because it's a one month. Run off cycle would be very very hard to redo placate that absentee ballot effort win. It's a habit pattern for Republicans to do that. So I think Republicans would still have a slight edge there..

The median say the machines are changing my vote when they're not you're not out there. Trying to get the media to say, oh, Brian. Kemp is throw. When people off the rolls in stealing the election when he's not. That's what you do when you're losing. Oh, I've got a juicy story for y'all in kudos to I'm going to try. Jessica Salai at all on Georgia has she got the scoop the other day about Lucy MC bath living out of Georgia having been in Tennessee and her husband in Tennessee. She's got one here. Listen to this information combine compiled from Stacey Abram, social media accounts and various news outlets cross reference to Stacey Abrams per diem account. Schedule indicates Stacey Abrams on numerous occasions collected state reimbursements for activities on days without state business. The comparison encompasses the six years she was minority leader while Abrahams served as minority leader. It was expected that she would be among the top recipients of per diem days as reported by the JC, but it question is whether or not those per diem days, we're related to her official capacity for the state of Georgia. The september. Article in the JC says Abrams began collecting daily payments from the state at almost twice the rate of her predecessor, but some of the events attended while collecting per diem reimbursements include Democratic Party, events, Hillary Clinton speeches and so-called resistance events in two thousand fourteen which would not qualify state business, and they total more than eleven thousand five.

"And in fact, in Brian Kemp's victory speech last night in Georgia, he stated just that very clearly as a part of his remarks, Georgia is a red state. Now you wouldn't have to say that if that was a fatal comple-. But his point is that he knows there's gonna be a ton of attention on this race, and he knows that Democrats have been eyeing Georgia, longtime, and he's reasserting, you know, his belief that this is not really a flippable state. I doubt we're gonna hear that message for very long. Because one thing kept doesn't want to do is do anything to damp in interest, excitement, enthusiasm in the race from his supporters doubt his message for the next many months. It's going to be like this red state. It's all locked up, pay no attention here. He's going to want to keep his voters engaged and try to gin up as much support as possible by saying there's a real threat coming our way Republicans, so pay attention and get geared up. So that's one reason. Just Georgia in general is a state that is politically very interesting to watch. But then the other reason is Abrams versus can't this matchup now in Georgia. And I know it's a governor's race, but there's a larger story here folks. These are sort of the architects characters of American politics in two thousand eighteen. You've got on the Republican side. The complete ownership of Trump make me in the mold of Donald Trump. This is who I am now. Again, I'm describing how each of these candidates ran in their primaries. We'll see how. Much. They pivot. There's that word, of course, for the general election, but my guess is their identities are so rock-solid in the way that they won their primaries that a maybe a little difficult for them to navigate to the middle easily. So you've got camp who is like completely defined in the mold of Trump and you've got Stacey Abrams from the progressive resistance, liberal wing of the party who has been all about what I was just talking about. Remember in her primary it was all about. Do you sort of run to get those folks in the middle and bring in more white voters who may have been Republicans and get them converted to Democrats or Republican leaning independent, who were anti-trump, perhaps get them, or do you really try to go to that core coalition that makes up the most reliable, democratic voters and find new pockets of them in really reshape the electorate to look more democratically faith. Third and Stacey Abrams sort of quadruple down on that notion when she was running in her primary. And so I do think you have the representations of where the energy is in each of America's two major political parties in this Kemp versus Abrahams race. And for that reason and the fact that Georgia is a sort of experiment of a state politically, demographically here is a Republican leaning state in what is likely to be a very good democratic year over all across the country. So what does that do to the makeup of the electorate in a Republican leaning state? But one that has demographically shifted and has been trending and catching the eye of Democrats more. And layer on top of that, these two characters in the candidates who are so reflective of where the energy is in their parties right now, sort of define the the state of American politics and twenty eight teams. So it's going to be a great race to watch all the way through. The other thing to note there are two Republican held congressional districts where once again, female power is driving democratic nomination outcomes, so to female candidates emerge as the primary winners to be the democratic nominees in the fall in these two Republican held congressional districts, one of which is the Georgia's sixth congressional district. You remember that Jon Ossoff versus Karen Handel race a year ago, Karen Handel one. She is now the incumbent Lucy MC bath who is a known as a mother of the movement lost the Sunday gun. Violence has made that a central component to her candidacy another African American. Woman making her way into the world of politics as a candidate now sort of leaving moving from activists to to candidate in this process. So she's a interesting character to watch in enough herself, but this dynamic again of the female powered moment inside the Democratic Party..
