"'cause I've still got a lot of fight left in me. Our legislators are across America. Telling women that for 9 months, that they are mere subjects of the state. That their bodies belong to the whims of an almighty government that the liberty are creator endowed with us is no longer a self evident truth that the autonomy and independence God has given us. Has been stripped away by mere men. There is no freedom for a woman unless she has freedom over her own body. Representative Lucy mcbath. On fire. By the way, yeah. I lost her son to gun violence and has become a warrior on that issue. And also, of course, on choice. Chris Murphy, another warrior on this issue, said the Yuval video puts to bed forever. The question of whether the way to deal with bad guys with guns is to make sure there are more good guys with guns. We've always known it was a gun industry created lie designed to sell more guns.

"Disinformation. Wow. Oh my. Okay. I don't even know if it's gaslighting. That's beyond honest. And she's saying, oh, that doesn't really count. Under the law that you just worked 50 years to get the Supreme Court to do it now. It doesn't count. Yes. What do you mean, Daniel becomes pregnant? I thank you, volatile mermaid on Twitter.

I give me some Lucy mcbath while we're waiting for the chairman because I got to recover. Do you believe all abortion is murder? And if so, do you believe miscarriage is manslaughter? You believe women should face criminal penalties for seeking an abortion. Do you think doctors should be put in jail for providing them? Do you support a woman's right to make her own healthcare decisions? And the reason we will never hear response to these simple questions is that they know the answers they give Americans will find extreme and disturbing. Okay. And real quick, slippery slope move. With a Supreme Court over tuning wrote last month, the architect of the Texas abortion law has already aimed at marriage equality and his next target could lead Texas without access to lifesaving preventative care. As the architect of Senate Bill 8, which makes everyday Texas citizens abortion bounty hunters, he wants clerked for Scalia. He spent years advocating for the Supreme Court to reverse roe, his legal theories and court cases laid the groundwork for the ruling to fall. He is now set his sights on two medications that help prevent HIV transmission because he says those medications enable homosexual behavior. That's what his suit says. So welcome to the slippery swap. All right, we're going to break because we have chairman Jamie Harrison.

Tuesday marked the first Georgia election under a new voting law adopted by the Republican backed state legislature in response to Trump's grievances. The changes made it harder to vote by mail, which was popular among Democrats in 2020, amid the pandemic, introduced new voter identification requirements that critics warned might disenfranchise black voters and expanded early voting in rural areas that typically vote Republican. The new law also banned handing out food or water within 100 feet of a polling place, a practice common in urban areas, where there are typically long voter lines. Despite concerns about the impact of the law, there were no major or system wide issues reported in Georgia. There were sporadic reports of polling locations opening late, minor equipment, troubles, and some voters finding themselves at the wrong location, and the Atlanta suburb of Woodstock, Republican primary voter David butler said he likes Trump, but chose to support Kemp instead of the Trump backed Purdue.

"And in that state, you ran for a house seat in 2017 and narrowly lost, But then the person who beat you Republican Karen Handel, Just lost her re election bid in November. 2 Democrat Lucy McBath, So there's this this teeter totter in Georgia. What does that say to you about Georgia politics more broadly? Well, it's less a teeter totter in Georgia and more consistent progress. But the last 10 years in Georgia, much of this work led by Stacey Abrams, my 2017 U S House race, which was historic, which brought tens of thousands of volunteers into the fold. Which proved that we could build political power and make progress even in areas that were considered non competitive. Politically, All of this has been a long term effort. You shift politics in Georgia, and now George is the most competitive battleground state in the country hosting two U. S. Senate run offs for Senate control, and we are continuing to invest in unprecedented grassroots organization. My campaign has hired nearly 3000 young people, predominantly from communities of color to organize their own peer groups, their own networks, their own communities. Involving people in politics, who never even imagined that they would be asked to get involved in politics, empowering communities and demographics who have been marginalized and ignored. And that has been the spirit of democratic political activism and Georgia for the last decade, and it's why we're gonna win tomorrow is because we've been doing that hard work over time with a strategic mind set to build power. Talking to Jon Ossoff's. He's one of two Democratic candidates running for seed and Georgia Senate run offs. Tomorrow. We did it extend an invitation to all four candidates in those races were also talking to Emma Hurt Politics reporter with W. A. B in Atlanta And for those who don't live in Georgia, tell us a bit about John's opponent, Senator David Perdue. Hi, John. Senator Purdue is the incumbent that that we have in this race, and he won in 2014. As a conservative businessman. You know his his profile sort of mirrored President Trump's two years before Trump's run he he's the cousin of a former governor of Georgia. And so there was a lot of name I d in his campaign. But in his time in the Senate, you know he has really closely aligned himself with the president, and he and his counterpart, Senator Kelly Leffler, who was appointed last year, have both ran their campaigns very, very close to the president as well. In Georgia voters air in a bit of a bizarre situation right now, If the Senate goes Republican, they will likely not see these $2000 payments, which are being pushed by President Trump explain a little bit more about the dynamics that are at play right now between Republicans, Emma Yeah, it's it's a bit of a twilight zone for Republicans in Georgia right now, because Senator Purdue ran his 2014 campaign as a budget hawk is a deficit hawk talking about the national debt. And he previously was lukewarm on the idea of additional stimulus checks, You know, favoring income tax credit instead. But because the president came out and supported this $2000 stimulus increase, he and Senator Leffler both joined in those called despite the fact that other members of their caucus Have not supported that. And so you know, as as John conspicuous well, it's Zbynek. The Twilight Zone. Watching the Republicans have toe have to continue to teach their message close to the president. And and try to try to stay on track there. What we got this tweet from vintage, she says. I'm reading many attacks on Reverend War, not that are being proven false. I'm tired of having to play the card. However, I'm led to believe it's a campaign to attack Black Man. John NBC News recently obtained a memo alleging allegedly from your campaign managers sounding the alarm about outside spending by the GOP. How concerned are you about the financial state of the campaign? Well, look, we're down to the final 24 hours and we've been working hard to ensure that we have the resource is necessary to sustain this massive turnout age massive turnout operation. I mean, at this point It's really not about the TV ads. To be clear. More money has been spent attacking me. Then any Candidate for the United States Senate in American history over the last year, But that's ultimately not what this is about. This is about who gets out and votes for change, and that's why my campaign has prioritized investment in community organizing. Grassroots field efforts in canvassing we made over 1.4 million phone calls to voters yesterday. This is the largest turnout effort in American history. That we're running in Georgia. And so yes, the Geo. He is doing what they do. It's paint by numbers, partisan attacks very personal, but you know what? We tune it out and focus on getting out the vote and presenting the people with a positive vision of what we can in due to improve life for working people. To improve equity to expand justice, passing landmark civil rights and voting rights bills investing an economic recovery getting economic relief to people who are suffering, reopening the nine hospitals that have closed in Georgia in the last 10 years, building new clinics to serve every community in this state. My wife works as an O. B g. Y n dock at Grady Hospital in labor and delivery in Atlanta. Georgia has one of the highest maternal mortality rates in the United States, mothers and newborn babies who are in poor health because our states refused to expand Medicaid and neglected maternal health. My point is that the GOP can run all the negative attacks they want spend hundreds of millions of dollars were speaking for the people. Reverend Warnock and I are building a coalition of the people for the people and by the people to elect representatives who will put the welfare of the people ahead of their own bank accounts ahead of partisan interests. John, I want to get your reaction to the news that broke yesterday. This call between President Trump and Rapids Burger about election results. What was your reaction when you heard that audio? Well, that's a brazen assault on our democracy for the president of the United States. Try to intimidate state election officials to get them to reverse the outcome of a lawfully conducted election. That's a direct attack on black voters in Georgia because it was the power of black turnout that delivered this state for Joe Biden and Kamila Harris. And by the way, this comes against the backdrop Of six lawsuits that David Perdue and Kelly Leffler and Georgia Republicans have filed to try to suppress voters during this run off trying to purge the roles trying to remove ballot. Dropbox is trying to restrict voting hours and locations. This is why we need a new voting rights act in this country to make a voter suppression. A federal crime and secure the sacred franchise for all people. I cut my teeth and politics working for John Lewis. He bled on the Edmund Pettus Bridge for voting rights. And the fact that the president of the United States and George is two U. S. Senators are still working to disenfranchise their own citizens is a disgrace. It cannot stand. And it's why we need new voting rights legislation to pass Congress. Do you think there is some sort of accountability that you come into play here? And what would it look like to your mind? The president for the president, also for the GOP senators, who plan to challenge biting twin Well, look, the first and most immediate accountability that can be rendered is for the people of Georgia to stand up and vote in record numbers tomorrow in defiance of these efforts to disenfranchise them. And if the words that the president uttered or the effort that he undertook was not lawful, and I suspect that it may not have been then Georgia's authorities need to look into that. If you're elected. What's the number? One thing you think needs to be on the Senate to do list. Step one is responding properly to this covert 19 pandemic, one of the reasons that the death toll has been so catastrophic and the economic costs so high Is that foolish politicians? And it starts at the very top in the Oval Office have disregarded and ignored and disempowered public health expertise in a public health crisis. Georgia hosts the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the premier epidemiological agency. In the world, and I'm ready to work with this incoming administration to ensure that the CDC is resourced and empowered to lead a national health response strategy.

"Now the predictions I say I'm gonna be really difficult tonight. The sea is not doing the precincts reporting your political junkies Monica YouTube probably follow the little predict a meteor on your little dial that goes back and forth, showing the probability they bagged that they're not doing it tonight or you can't do it. You've got too many votes that were done by absentee Valent and early voting. You can't do it. But what I'm I'm also looking at Particularly when it comes to Florida. You have the Hispanic vote down there The latte next vote, which is very important, But you also have a split because you have Puerto Rican who are very mad at the president for the lack of support for building Puerto Rico and not really seeing them as American. And then you've got the Cubans who are very much Republican and saying the economy, the economy, the economy. All politics is local is the saying. It's true. It's a cliche because it's true. Nate Silver's Fivethirtyeight site too. He's more of a statistician than a politico. He runs tens of thousands of models to check the probabilities. He in the past has done his probabilities right up through election night. He cut it off this morning. Said No, No, no, not me. Not going there tonight so Caution is the watchword of this evening. And that is one reason that this very likely will not be settled tonight. First numbers from Georgia's sixth District congressional race. This is the incumbent Democrat Lucy McBath versus the perpetual running for office care and handled the Republican and as of right now, 22,818 votes for McBath. 16,281 votes for care and handle that is a spread of 58 to 42% McBath over Karen handle anyone who watches jeopardy. Will a fortunate night knows that McBath has blanketed the airwaves with ads and handle not so much, And now she has approach is that she is a reasonable, almost bipartisan, moderate and its interesting the commercial of hers that I remember the most. Is the veteran who says I am a Republican. But I will vote for Lucy McBath because of what she's done for those of us who were in the military, so she has played it smart, going straight down the middle and showing that she can work both sides of the aisle and you've got to remember she beat handle handle was in that office. Originally, she beat handle mainly at that time because of Her stand on gun control because of her son having been killed, But she is breast cancer Survivor. She's in an area where the president talks about suburban women Suburban women like Lucy McBath, Karen Handel, having been you know, secretary of State having been with Planned parenthood. Some people don't like her to put it bluntly, like hair her to Ted Cruz. Yes, Exactly. And I think that that is one of the things that hurt her in this race with Macbeth. I think for this one, I think Macbeth is going to pull it out. Alex Williams and the traffic center has a story about Karen Handel. And when we're all punchy late tonight, And make him tell his Karen Handel story I really quarter of eight here in 95.5 WSB listening to our live continuing coverage of election night 2020. We're following several other congressional races here in the Metro area that the fifth District a race between the chemo Williams, a Democrat in Angel's Staten King, the Republican No numbers there yet the seventh District race Caroline Bordeaux, Democrat Rich McCormick, Republican Also three referenda or constitutional amendments on the ballot tonight, which we will talk about in a few minutes as well that a quarter of eight Bryant kill me, joins us live Now you hear him on WSB every night as well, Brian. Thanks for your time. Monica Pearson and I were discussing the notion of seeing buildings and businesses boarded up heading in tonight. Like there's a hurricane coming. It's a sight. It's unbelievable, and I actually think people look at the market and they're looking at indications on who's going to win. The only reason you brought up building is because you think Trump's gonna win because the trump voters who lose Ah nail biter a heartbreak or get blown out are not going to wreck the place. Why are we pretending that the Trump voters are that? That's just not the way they act and I don't consider proud boys or whatever trump voters and there, you know. And regardless, that's not going to happen. What they're doing is we've got to get to the bottom of this After this election's over the so called riots to change America are coming from the outside and finance. These people are paid. It's scripted the F B. I knows about it. We've got to get to who's writing these checks? It's two people two up in society. They're not there to make grace relations better than not to make America more equitable of a country there is destroyed the place from the inside out. And when I saw the list from the FBI, CIA off all the things already planned. How do you plan for unrest on an election that hasn't been run yet? So in Jacksonville, Baltimore, Riverside, California, Los Angeles, San Diego, Chicago, Portland, Seattle, New York City, Staten Island. This stuff has already been cast, and I imagine checks already been deposited. CBS News is calling the state of Vermont for Joe Biden that is three electoral votes that gives him 16. Now out of a total of about 80, which are available as of 10. Minutes of 88 o'clock is a big hour for poll closings and electoral votes available. It's boilerplate stuff, but we're told this evening that both President Trump and Joe Biden are feeling optimistic about their chances, But I do get a sense. From the behind the scenes quotes that we're getting that there seems to be at least a tiny sigh of some relief from the Trump campaign. That probably wasn't even there this morning. I'd say They are, They're they're competitive and I am the fact is that Joe Biden went to two events in Pennsylvania wasn't a visit his house. It's because he's feeling the Pennsylvania is going to matter. And I look at Nate Silver, a very pro left Ah, pollster and said If Joe Biden loses, Pennsylvania is an underdog. And they feel as though going into today that they're beginning to lose Florida, and early indications are as a 12. The Republicans did much better in the early voting than anyone thought. And now all they have to do is do the turnout day off..

Now we were on the air yesterday, while the second half of the attorney General Bill Bar hearing was taking place. Yes, we didn't get a chance to play a lot of the sound bites that came from the second half of the day because we were on the air. But I think this warrants some playback. This warrant some attention. So if we're going to talk about the attorney General Bill bar, Ladies and gentlemen, I think we need to have the official Bill Bar Music. Toby Keith, Right there. Second favorite camera Nigel Records right there. So yesterday again. Our show starts at three. We go till seven. During that timeframe, Democratic representative Lucy McBath of Georgia. Was questioning, the attorney general issued some Capitol Hill by the way, just talking about the federal response been grilled, being criticized about the federal response and how the feds have handled the violent protesters in Portland, Seattle, in other areas like that.

They were grilling him on everything from You know why he supports the president's healthcare plan. And who do you hang out with? Who do you talk with? They were ripping him for wanting to go to the bathroom yesterday. So representative McBath of Georgia He was going after Bill Bar for wanting to get rid of the affordable health care plan. Obama care Take a listen to this because you're going to hear. Ah, representative McBath talked about How she had health issues. She is a cancer survivor Bill bar respond by talking about how his Children have had to deal with cancers, and she cuts him often says he's being political in my district, the sixth District of Georgia Congressional district there over 300,000 people that have pre existing conditions. And I, sir am one of them a two time breast cancer survivor. Our state. Is continuing. Tough battle hard against a resurgence in covert 19 cases. So I'm asking you, sir. Not to gamble with American lives not to gamble with my life. And I'd like you to confirm that if the president has no other plan in place by October, you will reverse course. And drop your position that I quote you directly the entire A C A must fall. I have two Children who are cancer survivors, So I feel very strongly about this issue as a matter of policy, and I believe that the president's made clear that he will ensure that there was no answer My question. Will you stop playing politics? Well, Americans Healthcare in the middle of a pantomime I playing politician on the lawyer. I'm not in charge of health care. Well, you were talking about what in the world is Bill Bar have to do with health care policy. He is the attorney general. He's a top cop. She gets in. Tell her cancer story He can tell his because he's playing possum thinks she saw that one coming at all of worst kind of person. I hate these people. I really do. Um, How about the Florida representative Ted Deutch, Take a listen to how many times he screams over Bill Bar as he attempts to answer his questions. Mr Attorney General, can you think of any other cases where the defendant threatened to kill a witness threatened to threaten to judge lied to a judge where the Department of Justice claim that those were mere technicalities? And you think of even one? The judge agreed with R. And you think of even one? I'm not asking about the church. I'm asking about what you did to reduce the sentence of Of Roger Stone? Yes. Can you think Mr Attorney General he threatened the life of a witness and the witness that has a technicality? Mr. Attorney General has a listener and I have just a few seconds. I'm asking if there's another time this time Justice judge that the judge agreed with our answer My question this Judge Wonderland. It's unfortunate and the appearances that as you said earlier. This is exactly what you want. The essence of rule of law is that we have one rule for everybody. Shut the hell up and let him answer the question. It's obviously that he's threatened by Bill Bar. It's He's not a smart he can't keep up with with Attorney General Bar and that's why the filibustering And again if you think that was the most ridiculous thing you heard yesterday toward the end of the hearing, Bill Bar just had to take a leak. He needed to take a five minute break and old nads was up there, not wanting him to go. Miss Dean is recognized. Mr. Chairman, could we take a five minute Dean is recognized. Can we take a five minute break, Mr Chenault? It's a common courtesy. Medina's regiment of every witness. I waited 45. We're an hour for you this morning. I haven't had lunch.
