"In the mid south, meteorologist Michelle Grossman. So 9 million Americans under heat alert that's mainly in the plains and the upper Midwest, but that heat does extend all the way down to the south.

COVID shots could be available for children 5 and under as soon as tomorrow the CDC signed off on the recommendation Saturday the decision clears the way for nearly 2 million children in the U.S. to get vaccinated. I'm Michael kassner. This is Bloomberg best on Bloomberg radio. You're listening to a special edition of Bloomberg best, featuring highlights from the Bloomberg equality summit. I'm renita young. We conclude this hour with a wide ranging conversation with former Atlanta mayor Keisha Lance bottoms. She addresses voting rights, the midterm elections, and her political future. She speaks with Bloomberg's Jacqueline Simmons. So mayor bottoms, the world watched you lead the city of Atlanta through COVID through social unrest and protest, some heart wrenching violence and economic turmoil. And you officially stepped down as a 60th mayor of Atlanta in January. Post term, how are you focusing your time? So I am figuring it out. I was at my desk in my home one day until about 9 30 at night. And I was telling my mother how tired I was. She said, well, what are you doing? I said, that's a good question. So I've had a couple of resets. They're only 24 hours in a day. And just getting back to normal, I'm speaking, I am doing commentating and all sorts of things, including taking my kids to basketball practice and carpool every day. And you were on a short but very esteemed list to become vice president in 2020. Does The White House remain a goal for you? Each time I have the honor of going to The White House, I feel like I'm going into Disney World. When you are in politics, it of course don't get any better than that. And it is such a magical place. And so I've been there a couple of times over the past month. I was just there last week and I still have to pinch myself. So never say never. Right now I'm working on carpool and we'll see what the future holds. That sounds like a goal. I'm just gonna call it, but okay. Beyond The White House and just one more question about aspirations. Because I never heard you say a rule returned to political life out. Under which context would return to the political scene. I never thought I would run for mayor of Atlanta. It took a very long time for me to get comfortable with the idea of running for mayor. But just as certain as I was that I should run for mayor, I was just in certain that it was time to exit. And put a period at the end of that season. And during my press conference, when I announced that I was not running, I said voters get to decide every four years and so do I. And it is time to pass the baton on to someone else. So that's a very long way of saying. I don't know, but I will know when I know. Okay, so let's put a little bit of into elections. Nationwide and in your state of Georgia, there's a lot of elections coming up. You've got four key posts in the state of Georgia, Secretary of State, house, Senate, governor, we're going to talk about governor in a second. But I know you've said that you hope voters turn out. How concerned are you that people won't turn out, especially after the big voting rights legislative loss in January? I'm very concerned. And for many reasons, and I say my best polling source goes between my mother and my college student, my oldest son. And when I look at my son, I look at someone who's not very satisfied, not mature enough to understand that there is a process, and that it doesn't happen with just one election, although he very much wants instant results. And I think that's reflective of a lot of people in America right now, but just as I'm constantly drilling into him every single election counts. You just can't go and vote for president and then not come back. You've got to vote in local elections. State elections, federal elections. But it concerns me. And then on top of that, we have had massive voters suppression laws put into place in Georgia. A drop boxes have been restricted. The time, the length of time that people can go and vote early voting has been limited and you can't even pass out water. In line. In June, in Georgia. So I know that there's a lot of frustration and then on top of that, we're still recovering as a country. So you have people going, well, what was that all about? Because I don't feel like my life is any better. I don't necessarily agree with that, but I know that's the sentiment. And so we've got to keep reminding people that it matters. And I posted something on Instagram saying that if you don't think elections matter, take a look at a confirmation hearing. This is what happens when you have the opportunity to show up and vote. Historic things can't happen, but again, that's a process. So what do you tell not just your Z 18 year old, your son? 19 years old. Almost 20. Okay, you're almost 20 year old son. And other voters in his age bracket. What do you tell them when they're on the fence or they're frustrated because it's not moving fast enough? Well, my son, you better go vote. And I'm going to 3 o'clock and you better meet me there. That's what I tell him. But my more polite way, is that and I think of the words of audre Lorde, revolution is not a one time event. And especially in Atlanta, we have such a deep and abiding connection to the civil rights movement, led by young people, reminding them that there were students from the Atlanta university center, that literally change the world. And that the power is still within their hands. And if they don't like what's happening, then go vote and change it. But how does the, just widening the lens a little bit? How does the DNC and the Biden administration come back from a ledger slate of collapse that happened in January in a way that fires up the base? In a way that fires up the base in a way that the Republicans have fired up the base. Well, you know, when you take polls, it's a snapshot in time. So polls can swing from this way. They can swing that way. And I'm a living testament to that when I ran for mayor. Just a week before the election, I was 6 points down in the polls. And I ended up winning by a very slim margin. And I say that to say, I know a lot of people are looking at polls and looking at where President Biden may be in the polls and believe that that's going to be reflective in the midterms, but I don't receive that And what I know is that the DNC is continuing to do the work, continuing to invest money in communities towards countering the voter suppression efforts towards registering

"This done May God bless you all and may God protect the sacred right to vote Thank you I mean it Let's go get this done Thank you We've been listening to speeches from President Biden and vice president Harris from Atlanta Georgia making their case for federal voting rights legislation I'm Ari Shapiro The vice president described what she called an assault on our freedom to vote as Republicans pass legislation limiting ballot access in states around the country President Biden said to them too many people voting in a democracy is a problem so they are putting up obstacles Both connected this effort to the history of civil rights battles in Atlanta from doctor Martin Luther King Jr. and the late congressman John Lewis to more recent fights over voting rights in Georgia and beyond This is live special coverage from NPR news And I'm Tanya Mosley Listening along with us today is Scott detro NPR White House correspondent want to summers NPR political correspondent covering race justice and politics and deirdre wash Walsh in PR congressional editor and I'll start with you Scott what stood out to you A lot of things did It seemed like both President Biden and vice president Harris had two audiences for the speech that they went back and forth to several times One was voters particularly voters who voted Democrat their base saying you need to be alarmed about these trends a broad thing is happening and it is trying to suppress your vote Hearing very forceful language from Biden making it clear that he's going to continue talking about this raising this issue The second audience was the United States Senate And I think there Biden's repeated framing of this as something in the sweep of history saying what side do you want to be on the side for civil rights or the side suppressing votes You heard a version of that argument again and again And I think what was interesting was that he directly tied laws that limit voting access in Georgia in Texas and other Republican states to January 6th and more broadly to the attacks on the election and lies about the 2020 election that have continued to be pushed by Donald Trump the former president who Biden defeated in that 2020 election So that's the scope of this And politically I was really struck by Biden's clear call to pass the two voting rights bills that are stalled in the Senate right now pass it pass it now He said at one point frankly that is more forceful language a more energetic argument to pass something than we have heard from Joe Biden as he made the case for his agenda and that build back better bill that is also currently stalled in the Senate And the most important part about that was the fact that Biden who spent decades in the U.S. Senate and thinks of himself as an institutionalist made the argument for the first time really forcefully today that the Senate needs to change its filibuster laws It needs to make an exception so that these voting rights laws could pass by a simple majority vote rather than clearing that 60 vote threshold because every single Republican has opposed those measures and it's very clear that there will not be 60 votes for any of them in this Senate It spoke earlier about what voting rights activists were hoping to hear from the president and vice president today Do you think they got what they were looking for You know at one point the president said that he's been having quiet conversations with members of Congress his fellow colleagues in the Senate and that he's tired of being quiet and frankly I think that is what a lot of these voting rights activists wanted They wanted to hear a president who was as impassioned about the cause of protecting the right to vote as he was about passing the bipartisan infrastructure Bill His economic agenda And I think they really got that today There are points as I'm looking down at my notes that I feel like some of the phrases that President Biden used are thing that I've heard in my own conversations with activists particularly when he made the point that Senate rules have been changed in the past He pointed to them being changed to raise the nation's debt ceiling for example that's something I hear from activists all the time He made the point that history will not be kind to those who have sided with voter suppression over voting rights That is something activists have said what they have really wanted is to feel the full power of the presidency on their side for this cause and I believe that there's a lot that many of them will like here that the president and vice president said Deandra we talked about to Democrat senators at the top of this special West Virginia's Joe Manchin and Arizona's Kirsten sinema Their support of changing Senate rules to get any voting rights reform bills past is key in all of this Did you hear any parts of today's message that you felt like was aimed that their way Definitely I think what Scott mentioned early the earlier the president's message that were sort of at this turning point that senators are going to be judged in the broad sweep of history on this vote was definitely aimed at those two senators He put it flatly as a choice you know where are you going to stand He said you know are you going to be on the side of doctor king or on the side of George Wallace He said that now is the time Now is this turning point As a senator Biden was in the sort of the same place as mansion in cinema he was an institutionalist who argued to keep the Senate rules but he you know today he came out of Scott noted and came out for changing the Senate rules That is the first public time the Senate the president has made this vocal argument to do that He also said change the Senate rules whichever way you need to essentially he argued for a carve out but I feel like in that phrase he was talking to senator cinema and mansion like whatever you need however you want to change the Senate rules get it done I know it's hard to predict what's going to come next but Scott you've been covering Washington for a while now and I wonder whether you expect these speeches to actually change things Is it going to get the legislation passed Is it going to win over the activists who've been disappointed with the amount of attention that this administration has paid to voting rights so far Is it more than a statement I think my gut instinct would be that the Biden might have more success with the broader audience than with the Senate audience The fact is that he has not really engaged on this issue day in and day out He is not really treated it with the urgency that so many democratic base voters feel that this is truly an existential issue right now Biden has talked about it here and there he'd given a couple big speeches but he would often reframe his focus to the day in day out legislating I think if Biden keeps it with this amount of energy this amount of concern I think that is.

That's according to a poll commissioned by the atlanta journal constitution it found that fifty seven percent of atlanta voters either strongly or somewhat approve of the job. Bottoms has done as the city's sixtieth mayor but a clear majority also think the city is headed in the wrong direction on some of the biggest issues facing the city.

"Many i think i mean i mean shoot i i mean. I don't know how to handle that. You know as someone that doesn't live here. I think on steel sharpens steel. I mean if you have opportunities in your community take them. You know what i'm saying. And i will never turn down the opportunity immunity to make some some ins or some some headway in my space. You know what i'm doing. But what i can tell you about being in atlanta is. There's a community of people here that share information that are eager to help other people Even in the same way that dawn. Angela in monique helped me. That type of vibe like oh let me introduce you to this person and that person are places like the gathering spot where we go we. We have community in the introduced to so many different types of people. Some the people that i really met in this space That i met in this space I met at the gathering spot Retake check really talking about so you know. How long can this is. I can't wait to hear answer on this. But how how long can atlanta be the black cultural capital and economic capital. That he is a. Here's why i ask you. There's there's context question you remember. When mayor bottoms up after mayor read and how slim knows margins were for her to win. And there was a white candidate and a big issue. If you look at the numbers and spread of us the big issue is that when black people move to atlanta. They actually moved in norcross or alfa reta or decatur But only people who live in atlanta vote from about him and i don't think people realize that right and does atlanta change when there's one day perhaps a white mayor who isn't as passionate about black economics in black enterprise. Our mayor's of benzes maynard jackson one hundred percent. Absolutely i mean and i think the heartbeat a it sounds crazy but the heart of the city is like the entertainment culture is really what brings people here right s. the draw. The dry is no no. I'm not trying to be disrespectful. The but the draw is magic city. The draw is you know you see the draw. Is you know like a little baby. The draw is these nightclubs and the entertainment life in the in the lifestyle in the wealth. Right the draw is street culture right and so from that when that changes if the the you know the the the mayor in the government government change hands you can easily deny liquor licenses and closed down the magic cities in the world and make these nightclubs closed down and the studios move outside the city and really kill the culture so i feel like atlantic will remain the cultural epicenter of black cultural epicenter of america as long as we continue to vote and continue to get out and exercise our right vote. Now one thing that i can say which was what stacey. Abrams did with the new georgia project. If i'm not mistaken is that in this presidential election. They registered eighty thousand new voters and forty thousand. Fifty percent of those people have colored black between the age of eighteen and twenty four in the city limits of atlanta. So understand that we have forty thousand young black voters that that's that's a lot more people to get out there and vote for a black mayor right in. Continue to do so so I think a as long as we remain politically Sharp in aggressive and we elect staves governor in two thousand twenty two. We'll be good. I wanted to have you speak on something. I've heard you say many times. You know atlanta's own pop culture social media like the it is what what's in that new york in la now. They capitalize on what atlanta creates. And why you heard you say why is b. t. not in atlanta wise. The breakfast club not speak on that. Well i mean. I think honestly i think we're starting to see the change in the shift right. I think it since. I've said that i've seen will packer. Create this show called central ad right like an entertainment pop culture show based out of atlanta georgia. I've seen More radio stations. Try to change their their The way that they create content and space. They're a little bit more visual unit. Three's a little bit more visual bay. They spent a little bit more time focusing on online in the content. More so than just the radio so I i mean. I feel like i've seen butter. At l. come about by you know websites in in in you know cultural phenomenon Pop up in the city and even the influencers in this phase. Really get more savvy about what they do and i think atlanta has probably some of the most popular black. You know influence creatives in in the community. So i think people have listened and said know. We need to capitalize on that. So i see the change. I see what tyler perry's on television studios and so i. I see the evolution. I think we're right at that or right at that. Space like i said the infrastructure so more important. bt doesn't want to move here the first bt like network that is a really sinks they feed into atlanta the white bt out by. It won't even be hard. It'll be easy to though my wanted the anymore they want to miss watching this map. Because you you can't. It's no secret that like the most popular. Tv shows that they have black people in them are like real housewives of atlanta love in atlanta and lemon on ethics like shows that are so wildly popular about our culture so it the writing bay or you know the writings on the walls. Just who's gonna come in and really sink their teeth into the opportunity in a. How frustrating is it to you or might it be for you when you see artists and families of artists who don't own much of anything of what they're creating in they don't realize that you know five ten twenty five years their kids won't be able to leverage those assets in their persona in take care family business like like you did with your father in managing his estate and then being able to merchandise and take care of your family like is what do you think when you think about. They're giving it all away. Well i mean some of the decisions that are being made. I think our business decisions to make you know. Lateral moves in different verticals. Like i'm i'm gonna leave the music industry now. I can invest in tech or real estate other things like that. So i understand that. It's just kinda hard for me to understand that. Because i know the value of my fathers catalog and i understand how much money has made and will continue to make because he has one of those evergreen catalog where people can consistently sample him over and over again. Some of these other is. I don't know if they'll like they'll have that where they always simple their records and make new records new records and more wreckage right so But i think also a lot. More savvy than ownership is on the mind and everybody. I think Legos like qc where they do on their masters in. It is a licensing universal. I think artists like drake. That i think now. He's out of his cash. Money dealer people turn that corner there. It's it's a lot more ownership in the space people realize and i think When those story start to come out of people really reveal what they do on and what they do have. I think inspire future generations. They know. I need to own my stuff to that i've seen is. It's way more popular than it used to be the understand it really reading the fine print understanding why and and this is the reason why feel like even fan base is so important. Because what can you tell in independent artists that you want assign them when they have a fan base where they're making a million like i'm making twelve million dollars a year fan base. What cricket building you offer me like what can you give me. I if i a masters. I don't need i don't money so the ability to give creatives leverage in other spaces and be disrupted is another reason. Why i think the platform ray. Because there's gonna be some young rapper that gets.

She decided not to run for reelection because she knew she would not be reelected and didn't want future opponents to be able to use that against her I actually yes she.

I'm missing from 2020 Grim milestone. Yes. Dumpster fire. Ha ha Does daughter actually will give her credit for this? I'm looking for those precedented time returns and I have a confession to make. I think I need to take the blame for this When you guys remember How we started the segment last year on for the 1st 11 months of the year. Frankly, it was pretty slow. But with our top two stories coming into the final month, I guess it's time to strap in and get ready for a crazy 2020. So this is all your fault. Did we just make it to the end of the most historic year since World War two? I thought about this, and I would say not necessarily historic there. You know, there's 1968. There was 1989 the Berlin Wall, I would say maybe one of our most consequential years instead, I think That is definitely true. It could be said, and certainly of my lifetime health wise, I would say not since the 1919 flu pandemic Well, when you look at the impact on average American lives, you know, I would have to say it likely is because this thing affected everyone, and I think it's probably been since the mid forties. Since we've been through something like this. Together. What really sticks in your mind the most When you think back over this year's Scott Oh, gosh, individual responsibility. We had to hunt and gather again. We had to predict the supply chain And while trying to decipher differing edicts from the government where mass no don't wear a mask, I mean, what do you do? And finally you had to make individual decisions for your safety and your own families unlike we've ever had to make it least in my lifetime. For the most part this year. I think everybody rose to the occasion as best they could. They tried to rise to the occasion. They tried to overcome just tremendous obstacles. And it's it's enough to give you a little faith in humanity Still at the end of the year. And you know that was like Halloween when the CDC said we can't have Halloween. And every kid America said. Oh, no, and everybody figured out a way to pull off Halloween kind of safe, But for me, I heard this a lot of sports and for my friends, I had dinner with my family again. Yeah, that is definitely a positive, and after a while that becomes a negative spending more time with family. I think that commercial you may remember where the dog is like your dog for a walk it first and then it's starting to hide because everybody's so desperate to get out of the house who want the longest without a haircut. Why was the first to get a haircut? I knew I knew I knew out of this group that I was sacrificing and I have to say it's because that you have to just get to the root of the matter. Listen, that J. Maybe you went the longest I would quote I would, from February toe the summer. I think it was 60 days for May and the women in my house figured out how to cut my hair. How'd that go? Yeah, pretty good actually, because there's not but not much left to God. I had I had to call in my brother's girlfriend, and she got it done. But I do feel bad about my barber that I see no real interest in going there any time soon, But I think she's still in business. But What is your favorite innovation or improvement that we've quickly found? This year's got working my remote even though that much rather work in person being able to work by remote keys, a whole different part of your brain. I'm going to turn that around. I've been coming into work every day. I think one of the greatest innovations is having a spouse who works at home. Who can for the first time. Do all the shopping on Thursday so that I don't have to go on. I like zoom. I did not even know really What zoom was before this house on this radio station and I and now it's a verb. I like zooming with my family. We've say that we're going to keep that going as a trend, even when we could see each other again. But yes, I think Zoom and all the different ways we found to connect. We had a couple friends whose wedding Had been bagged because of the Corona virus. We said, come to our house. We had a wedding in the backyard with 150. People watching on the zoom with the cameras set up on a ladder that weddings don't terrible.

And we usually in this segment, you know, Look at the stories we overlooked this year. It's almost easy. Look at the stories we forgot about. But what what did get overlooked in thrown under the road marching? Well, it's it's all pre and post Cove. It, isn't it. There was Kobe Bryant. There obviously was the impeachment. Over fires not just in California but also in Australia record hurricane season and even murder Hornets E For me was the racial justice movement in seeing Humvees guarding the state capital and Lenox Square. First of all, while that was happening, a lot of people were genuinely afraid. That that's a real movement. It's a societal movement mostly were leads us. I'm not making a connection there with that. But I would say crime inside the city of Atlanta has been something that has been on the increased just month after month after month. Something's gonna have to give and here at the end of the year we discovered the mayor Bottoms is not offer the Biden administration after all, so perhaps something will give after the first of the year.
