"For for Joe. Biden is because he says he's Catholic, but he's pro-abortion. You can't change the basic fundamentals of the Catholic faith. It teaches you thou shall not kill. Period Bay says that leaves President Trump as the only choice for Catholics God bless him but he's not person Daniel many times fact he acts really like a jerk many times. But when it comes to the babies being killed, he is totally on board in South Western Pennsylvania Democrats and the Catholic Church were intertwined for decades more than a century ago mostly Catholic European immigrants found a home in the labor movement historians recall that churches served as headquarters for fledgling unions. When Democrats embraced the Union 'cause, they earned generations of voters who backed the. Party on economic issues but remained more conservative socially these days Republican political consultant Mike Devaney, says, the party is losing those voters as it moves left on social issues. A lot of these culturally conservative Democrats folks who've been registered Democrat and their families been registered. Democrat for generations really are no longer finding a home here devaney says if Biden wants to reverse that trend, he should campaign beyond urban centers and he should expand the discussion of values to include how you treat others and the way a president should act for here now. I'm Lucy Perkins. Architect Frank Gehry is ninety one years old but he's showing no signs of slowing down. He designed the new Dwight D Eisenhower Memorial in Washington DC that was dedicated yesterday I spoke with him about that project and about his early career. I was looking to make things a lot more cost effective. I wasn't using fancy materials. I grew up, you know very poor so I was using. corrugated metal galvanized. Wood framing. And I think at some point that resonated. With the architectural community anyway and I I was a curiosity. Let's say for a while. slowly you know. Things happen. We did the Bilbao, building That would be the Guggenheim Bilbao Museum Frank Gehry also designed the Weisman Art Museum Minneapolis, the Emp Museum in Seattle Beekman Tower in New York and loyal law. School. In Los Angeles, he's also designed a number of concert halls including the Walt Disney concert hall in L. A. and the Bouli Sal Concert Hall in Berlin as we continued our conversation, I asked Frank Gehry. If he thinks he'll design another. I love. Concert halls. I love listening to music. All music. jazz and classical and. And I love. Working with the musicians and the people few usually, the Philharmonic sports are fun to work with. I think creating a place where the the building connects people. And connects people to musicians and vice versa. It's like stagecraft. It's theater. You know when you go to good theater, you feel it. When you're an actor on stage, I've talked to many actors on. And and myself I've experienced giving lectures and halls where there's no connection between. Me Lecture the audience you feel like. There's WHO's out there and. The trick is he will is Shakespeare you know all the world's a stage. All Real. World players, I. think that the that I go by I mean everybody's in it. And when you listen to music the audience. Feeling of the audience by the musicians is very important. Do you listen to music while you're working? I used to a lot. Now I I don't I listen to music when I'm relaxing. Why is that? Because I've gotten more into the music and when it's peripheral, it's not as interesting I mean it's Nice as background but. I really like to listen to. Musicians and and the differences. Between the different pianists and the different and they are different and over time you get to recognize. Daniel Barenboim and and. The Goals Guy. Guys did the Goldberg Very. Glenn. Gould's. Yeah I grew up in Canada and Glenn Gould was a big deal when I was growing up as a kid what do you think of the architecture that you see today around you not the fancy stuff but the stuff that's going up the condo buildings that are going all over the place that seemed like they're just a template and you know the same in every city around this country. And that's what they are. Commentary on on US I guess on our lives and what we? Hold important. Invaluable I. Think I'm sure that for a slight twist you create. A better. Version and it's not more expensive but. That's my. battlecry but. You. Can't. Change People's. it starts with through commissions the building. And their their. Values. And then the public. Demands, I? Guess. Public. Doesn't demand better architecture. Most, people aren't even aware of it. And yet, we're surrounded by it all the time and it changes the spaces that were in all day. But. But if you go to downtown anywhere looks same right the same bill your I repeated in Seoul Korea is in. in Ohio, or in Kansas City or Wherever there. There seems to be a cookie cutter thing. Prevails. You know some of them are interesting I'd say, maybe twenty percents. I'm being optimistic. Building that you love that you didn't design yourself. Eric Mendelsohn Einstein Tower in Berlin. Is a beautiful building for for what it is and where it's and how it's placed. It's a masterpiece in placement in a urban setting it's not an urban setting, but it's events of. Of BUILDINGS FOR Jeremy with telescopes and things. And Mendelson who managed to place it so that when you came up the hill. You walked a certain way and you were just. Naturally. Came in on axes it wasn't like. An axial you know mandate. Didn't even realize that you're coming out and it was very subtle and I love that. That's one of my favorite but. There're others. If there's a young architect, a listening to this frank gehry who wants to be the next for Kerry what we call. The next himself. I think that's important I. Think you have to. You know when I started class with students I. Ask them to write their signature and they each write their signature and. Spread 'em out and say look you all have a different aesthetic when you write your signature. That's you. That's you. That's you. So there is a you that comes naturally. So stick with it. Let it come naturally designed come naturally view. And you'll prevail and become a who you are. Now whether everybody's going to like it, I can't guarantee but. You know somebody's GonNa like it somewhere I remember. An. Artist friend walking in the desert. Michael Heiser who does big monumental sculptures And was midnight we were walking out in the desert in Nevada looking at one of his sculptures and just on the little house in Santa Monica. And he said to me Frank. Did ever occurred to you that if you made your buildings out of stronger materials that would last two thousand years, somebody eventually will like it. I thought that was brilliant. Well that actually brings me to another question, which is what has pushed you to keep going in the face of criticism which I'm sure you've heard over the years of some of your buildings. Well I just I I can't be anybody else but me and people. Hire me so I assume that. As long as they do I, do it. If they stopped and I won't So I. Think the fact that somebody call me and say, Hey, when you work on this with me or help me. And I get enough of that to keep a big office going a couple of hundred people so When you're ninety one years old now but you are still very busy We mentioned the Eisenhower Memorial But What's your next project? What are you most excited about right now? Oh? Boy. That's like switches your favorite child. That when you say then the other people called say. I thought I was you`re Okay. Well, how about this one of the projects you're excited about? I'm working in Taiwan on the museum for medicine to show Eastern and Western medicine in a museum. And It's a beautiful sites and I'm trying to create a facade. That with with Vacheron lights looks like Watercolor I've done te pieces of that before other buildings but. this one as an opportunity to do in a special way. So. I'm excited about that. Frank Gehry great pleasure to have you on the show. Thank you so much for joining us and for everything that you have done an are doing in the world of architecture. Thank you very much..

"Today and tomorrow well there really are a good number of meaty topics to go through first of all we had whatever that was last night now i say whatever that was because it is considered to be debate and it did get a little feisty and it did get a little ugly and sloppy which is okay by me But I want to look at is more like a movie review. i don't really particularly care right now this early on to get into any weeds any incredible detail or policy wonk or things of that sort i'm looking at it as a lighter thing now make no mistake about this the democrats are on a fast track here they want to get to a nominee and have built this in a way to get to a nominee as early as april first and that might be late day of obviously set up these debates and they have done so with a specific timeframe in mind they have done it in a way that will check your pulse a lot quicker around the country with the primaries being stacked together changed mixed up a little bit california earlier south carolina early all with an eye toward trying to get this wrapped up in spring so that they could put whatever energy they have behind a candidate into november that that's how i see it that's how i believe that it is so last night was the first step in wallace going to be more accelerated and perhaps a lot of people think by no stretch to i believe it even worthy of tried to drill down on what elizabeth warren had to say about x. y. z. a. it's not all that new she's out there with all our plans and be i prefer to keep it in a little bit of a lighter way who One who lost who impressed who didn't who failed who will never see again, those types of things best supporting actor best actor what did John Tim Ryan do for you from Youngstown if anything? What in fact, did you take out of Amy klobuchar? What did you think of what we have from Senator Booker? And, and just generally. Did it fall flat? Did you even watch it? Did you watch it and fall asleep? i talked to somebody here within ten minutes at the beginning of the show and said it was good while i was awake maybe that fits you so it could be a yawn it could be a could be a yeah pick anything i'm looking for you know who impressed me a little bit more than i thought piper call Know. I saw a stat e that said that thirty five percent. Of registered. Democrats aren't interest at this point. count me in as a matter of fact listening to this morning's the first time i knew it even happened that type of stuff now a couple of things One. We've got a recap for those of you who fell asleep considered it a yawn. As opposed to a report from CBS or going to queue up that t has ready to go that'll happen in about twenty. So if you missed anything will be able to give you about a three minute overview. number two i've got mike devaney coming on about ten thirty five and again it's good to be like this whole red carpet type of thing one thing that was interesting is donald trump was not mentioned all that much not nearly as much as i would have expected joe biden wasn't mentioned would surprise me i thought that those two candidates to men would be in the room without being in the room when the case most people stayed within their own lanes some decided to you know play a little bit of games with each other i thought there were certain people who stood out and we'll get to that but there's more looks like we're gonna have a state budget on time thirty four billion dollars that there's some dem's that are very very wired about it though dams as in not being very happy and so yesterday in the senate is you heard me say to john chamois and larry we showed signs that reminded me a little bit of singapore Every South Korea. Went on the Senate floor all mayhem. Broke out. If you've not heard it, it's fascinating. It's pretty bad. and it reflects an anger associated with a particular part of the budget and more specifically an amount dedicated per month that relates to state funding for general systems citizen not that much money As a matter of fact, it's about two hundred dollars a month in a thirty four. Billion dollar budget. But the amount of emotion. Was amazing. So we've got. Lines cast everywhere for that. But we do have. one guest for sure steven blum of mccomb wealth foundation a conservative think tank to come in and give us his thoughts on it generally rob wilson is going to be with us a little bit later as well financial analysts we're going to be talking to him as a relates to development of opening amazon going after walmart more specifically amazon going after walmart customers explain that and a whole lot more eight six six three nine hundred ten twenty on your thoughts about last night you're welcome to check in in the meantime that's where we.

"Take a file that today's to school date their hashtag his fatherhood. You can find out more about it there. It occurs on may seventeenth, and we urge all fathers to participate to the phones we go John and Butler Yonne Katie gate. Mr moore. I just caught a tail end of one of your callers talking about Joe Biden with reparations, and maybe I don't wanna soom anything, but tell end of it. So you know, I'm just trying to figure out how what what's the concept of it. Because you know, my ancestors, I'm a third generation my family came here in nineteen twenty. So is it going to be everybody pays or is it going to be a certain few? Or is it going to be company? That's information. I I'd need to know before. I I'm on board with that. Well, first of all, the call said, he didn't support Kamala Harris because she did not support reparations to call a supported reparations as do I the so I he said he'd like Joe Biden more, and I ask you do you think Joe Biden and supports reparations. What's I am? Pretty sure he does not. So my question to him was why would you not support Kamala Harris? And then support Joe Biden if neither one I'm supports reparations now to answer your question. There are all sorts of ways that you could figure out who might pay. Would it be the insurance companies it ensured to slave ships? Would it be the families of the descendants of the slave owners? They're all sorts of formula to figure out who might pay and why they might pay an whom would be paid. How can you prove that you are the descendants of slaves, and as far as your ancestors, and when they came here if you think that they will miss used as where the Irish or the Italians when they came here, and you demanded reparations add before square for you in your demand. If you could prove that they were discriminated as slaves were. My grandfather wasn't a wasn't Italian. My thought is well where of the people talking about doing. A federal tax instead of doing awakes tax now, you'd get tons more money. And you always why they're not looking into is because the upper airs that are the state legislatures. They don't wanna pass it because then it has to pay more sedate by Moore. Anything else? No, I appreciate you clearing up killing a thank you. Okay. Thank you. Hey, damone PC N show. We're gonna talk to Republican strategists, Mike Devaney and Democratic's but strategists Mitch gates. You know, because they've been announcing Katy k to Joe Biden is going to be in town. And he's running for president will talk about the form of Joe Biden and the race in what these two strategists think are his odds of winning. We'll also talk about millennials and whether or not they will support some of these younger candidates democratic candidates, and who might be the person who would oppose Mr. Trump. There's also an article in the Washington Post today that talks about and you believe to Washington posts are not whether President Trump was telling the truth about Otto, warmbier in the fact that he says no ransom was paid. And he was the greatest negotiated get at least twenty people including warmbier out of Korean concentration camps, or whatever you wanted to call them. And we'll. I'll ask if that will have an impact on any potential election of Mr. Trump reelection of Mr. Trump back to the phones, we go, Gary and swiftly you on. Katie k. Hey, good afternoon. Good evening. I just try to lighten it up a little bit. You just feel like you've been waiting in long. Oh my God. That was very good that was classy. I liked that. This is my sake. Shit shares. I wanna ask you your opinion of this. Nobody knows. Sure. Is america? The breaking point before the breaking point drafter to react to breaking playing. That's an is in question. I don't think so to answer your question in my opinion. But I've interviewed a lot of authors who a comp- have compared for instance, the rise and fall of the Roman empire to America. And they think that we are close to the NATO of our experience here with the bottom of that curve. And and and a bring up all sorts of similarities far-flung armies than acting as mercenaries the Visigoths able to defeat them in various places, and the tax structure, and and got a stake in stuff, the the very rich to Roman Senate and everybody else compared to the very rich here in America. So there are some people thinks that we are past the breaking point. But I don't think so. Okay. I don't know. Nobody knows. But we have this news feeling across about that. Well, we always have you know, they had that feeling. Imagine. How it wasn't a great depress. You. Stories about the great depression. My dad told me stories about it. The imagine I've failed. Then imagine that people doing the red scare imagine how feeble failed to do in the gilded age. Go back to the turn of the last century when all Rockefellers, and and and the vanderbilts were making all the money. And now we in that same situation what we talk about the one percent versus the majority of other working American. So, you know, I think every generation has the feeling that gee, whiz things are worse than they ever were. Well, let's look on the positive side. And and try to work to make things better. That's what I say. I commend you for bringing this perspectives. You're given a perspective and you're right. That is a good perspective. Very healthy. Let me ask you this. A what you just said. Now looking back from generation Jim raises. See, I think I think we haven't as, you know, called many times on the subject, I think putting aside the moral part, which I've not putting aside because I think it is number one. I do I'm I'm I'm moving at the China the conversation beyond that. So we could talk about this. I believe it's entrenched three. And I think it's so deep. That's gonna take a almost a movement to squeeze a lot of it out. That's what I believe. It's happening are think you squeeze out greed greed, and and I said have have been part of of human history ever since Cain slew Abel. I'm I mean think about department that's true. Go ahead. Yeah. I'm sorry. Go ahead done. I just think you never get rid of greed in. Yeah. But I'm trying to say is I recognize you'd ever get squeezed it all out, That doesn't mean that we don't have it so date Dennis causing all these. Problems culturally and economically it caused them. Doing the gilded age it caused them doing there will labor rights, and and gang, whereas they make movies about this kind of stuff that was a point when we did know during the civil war if the if the union would even stand states succeeded in fought them, the most violent war were more Americans died in any of war. There's always going to be the, and it will still profiteers who will make money on arms sales. Then the same thing. I just got through complaining about it's just who you sell a norm students. So this this is always going to be there. We just have to rail against POWs it be that's that's true. You have to speak up against power being you've always been agreed on that. But that's a very poor thing that you have to do. Talk about this John quickly because I'm late for a break. Go ahead. I think I think our country is hungry for guess what? One more. You know, what that word is no stability. So that's what I think Joe Biden along with his is tremendous foreign policy experience. I think Joe Biden's biggest. Thing that he brings to today's candidates eight years ability, and that's why he may be elected. But he's got to win the primary. I o no. Thank you. Okay. Bye bye. My younger brother just sent me. A picture. It's Joe Biden twenty twenty campaign picture and in this. There is a young very attractive. Slim woman who has a Biden twenty twenty shirt on in their couple of cartoon hands. Giving part of her anatomy some stability. And I think it's kind of funny. But I think it's the least of his problems is touchy feely cans of things, but he said great campaign. Cher. Don't you say I wish I could show it to you on the radio of my powers of description were better, but they're not..

"You'll house leaders are saying the organization is going to dissolve and we're going to tell you about a man arrested in Butler county doing one hundred with kids in the back and police say he was drunk. That's coming up in our ten thirty news on Katie k radio. Let's it's been a minute. How are you? I'm fine. Yeah. It's great seeing you as well. The the election yesterday special election, we just had Mike Devaney on talking about it in that context and appropriately. So that's what it was. But it's not a small thing to have the Democrats win in that district. Well, this is somewhat similar district to the one that Connor lamb recently one. There are some similarities in the geography, they're not entirely the same. But what we're seeing is one of the observations that I made was we're seeing moderate democratic candidates are winning it. What used to be reliably Republican territory? Right. And it seems that the candidates that have done. Well, there have been have have emerged from that process. And in in both of these cases, I might add it's interesting that in the last couple of elections in this part of the county where Democrats have won they have been not selected by the voters in the primaries have been chosen by party leaders in both cases, not just the democrat. But also, the Republican so it's an interesting trend that yet I don't know if it's indicative of something larger or if it's just something local, but. Media raise a great point. I mean, a lot of people will go fast to connect the dots. Both on the state Senate side. And of course, nationally that's just the way people think, although that's probably that's probably wiser just tap the breaks. I I happen to be one of those that over the years that you know, it may be tried. It might be a cliche, but I think all politics are local. And I feel that ultimately people make their choices for you know, out of local concerns, first and foremost, and you know, I don't know to what extent I know that I'm in that district. I received mailings almost every day for several weeks from either one of the candidates, and you know, what what the themes that were being that were being emphasized to me seemed to be not local they seem to be national issues. Well, that's that's an interesting point. We saw that with the corner lamb win. And you'd go up and down and you'd see. You know, his opponent having a lot to say billboards and otherwise were all hugely nationals opposed to local I think that that's a very important element. I I, you know, I am I as a voter Amaury concerned with how the person we have elected is going to approach, you know, the issues that detect touch here. For example, there's been a lot of talk in the legislature, but not much traction in terms of the reform of the state system and bringing in. You know, a competition private industry competition. Where would our this person fit in on that there was the discussion recently held in the in the Senate, which was shut down by? Scarlatti about the about the church issue, and whether or not there was going to be a change in the in the law for the statute of limitations. These are the issues. I'm really concerned about taxation is another one. These are the things I'm education biggest part of the state budgets, but my correct. Yeah. Those are the issues I really care about. And and you know, where a candidate is going to be on a national issue. I'm not so certain. You know, the state seat. So that and the other thing, I don't know what you thought about all the money that was spent, but there's a lot of money spent. I wonder you know, for for just that you may have made me wonder, you know, were the people who were looking at this thinking in terms of something beyond state Senate for these candidates or was it just that interesting point. We'll find out two special seat now decided for Pam ivie. No, the democrat fourth state Senate thirty-seven, thanks so much for my brother. All right. We're going to look we've got a lot of show we have as a matter of fact, a ton of show for you today Ellis cannon fort lend, we're gonna be talking believe it or not about Mick Jagger. You may have heard about Mick Jagger, undergoing heartfelt a surgery will ever guessed a cardiologists joining us a little bit later in this hour. Also, an interesting story out of Nevada. Boy, you could get a lot of different things in vending machines, what about Narcan, that's right Narcan. That's available out there. That'll be an eleven o'clock hour, we're gonna be talking about a really good story late in the show about a PayLess store, of course, closing up shop, and what one particular person did to not just closed down that store, but ultimately benefit a lot of other people. So a lot to get to tonight. We'll talk about the hill. House will look at Pittsburgh gun legislation and more. We look forward to you being with us until two.

"Much for the syndicated K radio. A lot of topics on our mind today right off the bat. However, we want to go into state Senate seat thirty seven last night that went by way of Pam Lovie. No over Raja joining us to talk about that. And how that happened factors. Takeaways more, Mike Devaney colts spark a political consulting firm. Mike, obviously, well known in the region and in the political world, and thank you so much Mike for joining us much. Appreciate it as always. Always appreciate having you on Mike. How are you? I'm doing well. Thank you, Mike. I want to get your takeaways on what develop last night. Well, I think first and foremost any special election is on and on primary or general election day is going to have lower turnout. We always bemoaned the fact that people don't vote this is obviously a low turnout election. One of the things that we were looking at is has the democratic ways crested, obviously, the Democrats had a big election in November. And I think that the science from the thirty seventh last night shows that there's still a lot of intensity amongst the democratic amongst democratic voters. I think if you look at what's happened in this county and Allegheny county over the last dispatch election, November elections we have for the first time since I believe the nineteen thirties. There will not be Republican in the US congress from Allegheny county or Republican in the in the Pennsylvania state Senate to me, I don't think that that's a good thing for democracy. I don't think that's a good thing for the citizens of Allegheny county. But you know, I it is what it is. Why do you think that's the case? Mike. Well, I think, you know, a lot of the energy that we saw in the midterm elections was obviously a response from the Democrats tonight national trend response to, you know, President Trump we saw this for Republicans against President Obama in his first term election, and eventually these things do crest it doesn't appear to be happening yet. I think he did see high democratic turnout, and you know, the hope here is that as we're heading into the presidential race of two years Republicans if the national environment gets better because what happens in marginal seats is that that the go the other way, and this is the type of district. This is a you know, it's it's a mixed district. But largely affluent it's largely higher education levels, and those are the districts that you're seeing the president having trouble with the Republicans having some trouble with throughout the country much. Do you credit to Pam her grassroots approach policies and things of that sort? Or how much do you lay off to Raja? Well, I think special elections like this are generally face elections. I mean, I think you saw that in the type of advertising that was that was do you had the Roger campaign, you know, talking about abortion and accusing vino of being really outside the mainstream on that issue. Traditionally not the type of ads you see at mass communications. But he did it because they were communicating to their base if you're Republican in that district, you were getting all kinds of mail for Raja. If you're a democrat in that district, you were getting all kinds of mail and door knocks from my vino. Both of these camps were not really talking to voters in the middle because they know that it's only the most dedicated are dedicated to really come out on a special election in April. So you know, what that showed me was just that. I have enough space was more motivator. I think that many ways lends itself to national trends, but book, you know, campaigns that win wage good campaigns. She had there's a lot of energy coming off of Connor lamps win in the south hills. Benefited for that infrastructure that was really have been tested over the last few elections. And I think she became the beneficiary of that I have one minute literally, Mike, we, of course, knows is a year and a half seat. Then you have the election. A lot of folks are already tying together with the change of scenario potentially at the state Senate level. Do you read that as well? Or is that premature? I think it's too premature. I mean, you you see a number of national publications the hill out of Washington AP is running a store, I think nationally talking about the implications of this race. I think that know November of two thousand twenty is a lifetime away is terms of politics. But I do think Republicans need to learn from losses. You know, I mentioned that the dearth of Republicans in the state Senate and congress in Allegheny county, you know, if you look at the county ballot. I don't believe outside of the county executive slot that they feel that any candidates. I think we do have some hard questions that we need to ask. Then if the Republican party in this region is going to be competitor that we do need to start doing some things differently. Mike Devaney will Ford extending the conversation at the time. Thanks for your thoughts. This morning. Thanks. You're welcome. All right. Let's jump out right now. It's time for some breaks..

"Head. On August, fifth two thousand sixteen Denise Williams walked into the Tallahassee police department and said she had been kidnapped at gunpoint. She told detectives that she had just gotten into her car that had been parked in her driveway. When someone crawled out of the back and held a gun up to her ribs. Sister. And this person starts binding on the very back, and I couldn't tell I. It was and then immediately I knew who was screaming in the phone help the shooting up and then grabs grabs turn it off. And I never saw it at the end. He goes up in cropping me in people face, pretty hard. And he goes is Cussing in he pulled out a gun like not hunting gun like even with and he put it right here in my ribs, her assailant was none other than Brian Winchester her now estranged husband who she was in the process of divorcing. She said that as she drove Brian hovered over her saying, I just wanna talk to you. I just want to talk to you. He held her against her will for over an hour telling her that he had been emailing and texting her trying to talk her out of divorcing him. But she wouldn't talk to him. And so he had to do this. He told her that he had lost everything and had nothing to live for. Denise told the detectives that she tried calming him down, and that she told him that she knows he loves her and wants to talk to her. But that this wasn't the right way to do it. She said she just started agreeing with him and told him that if he turns his life around and goes back to the Lord he could get her back. She said he eventually calmed down. And let her go after she agreed not to call the police. She was scared of him. She told the detectives and wanted to press charges. After hearing about the kidnapping one of the cold case investigators who had been assigned to Mike's disappearance special agent. Mike Devaney decided to go to the Tallahassee police department and listen in on Denise is interview. And afterwards he went into the room and told her that he wanted to talk to her about Mike's disappearance by this point. He had suspicions not only about Brian's involvement. But also about Denise 'as. He told her that they believed Brian had intended on killing her that day. And he asked her where Brian had tried to get her to drive to. She said he kept telling her to turn by the roundabout. But that she wasn't really paying attention to that agent. Devaney then asked her another question. I. Checking on where there. I mean. I believe in a really believe he done. I do want. I just I just always believed and have. From what he was saying roundabout, I have. I'm talking to people. I can't remember if you want me to turn left, right? What are you saying like perish? Like, I should. Darlie? That's what I've always believed. I believe. Never been printed. Anything different. Lose your proofing humid person that like he would. There's never been a person has fallen or whatever that they've never. The incidences of awesome. Billy. I guess too. Not really. Agent Devaney told her that they had come to the conclusion that Mike did not die on lake seminal. And that they had been hoping that one day either. She or Brian could fill in some of the gaps for them Denise responded that her focus was on what just happened to her and on getting a restraining order against Brian agent. Devaney reassured her that they were going to arrest Brian for what he did that she didn't have to worry about that. Denise said, she still didn't wanna talk about Mike that she wanted to go and file a restraining order before the end of the day. Verse. Not feel to me though. I have not down not restraining order in. That's with is pressing won't be so bad. So I understand that you wanna talk about this. But this is what I wanted to this is what has to be. Today. You know, why supporting you like this is a this is your this is your husband, something hashed? I'll be so interested in again. This is my priority right now. I'm just I'm not talking about this right now does that had an unbelievable day. And this is this is just all too much right now. I just I really one of those something you should learn savior of life. It all ended with was trading agent. Devaney said they were seeing a side of Brian that investigators knew was there Denise responded that she had never seen that side of him before.

"Coming up later on this afternoon. Now Bill election day is over we'll take a look back at the winners and losers and speaking of the election, how will the results from yesterday impact the economy and the markets moving forward. We'll talk to CBS news business analyst Jill Schlesinger. More today to seven on the radio after the Knicks. Indeed some takeaways from yesterday. A lot of it obviously has to do with what your expectations were and whether or not they were satisfied or whether or not they weren't. It's always like that. There are a lot of people probably thinking man that was a lot of talk a lot of money a lot of advertising. And not only my glad that it's over. But thinking to yourself that it didn't really. Change anything all that much. Well, it actually did it change things fairly dramatically. We seem to like split government like a. Senator McConnell leader McConnell said earlier today, and we have since World War Two. And now we have it again. And I I'm not so sure it's going to be as bad as a lot of people think I just think it might play more into the hands of the president. And then a lot of folks that just got we'll see if it's true. In the meantime, I I certainly am welcoming calls on any aspect of the mid-term state local national, of course, eight six six three nine hundred ten twenty. I did watch a press conference which is just wrapped up about ten or fifteen minutes ago. Nancy Pelosi's having her so it's broadcast on the cables. But I I was very disappointed if not somewhat angered by what I saw today with the media's handling of the press conference. I know the president likes to battle and knock heads. I know he's created a lot of this atmosphere. But man, I'm telling you what you got to be a pro you have to be a pro. And I just I saw I saw some real amateurism out there today with the media. All right, as I said earlier, some calling the prince of darkness. I call him a one of the most important guests on radio, Jerry and homestead. What were your thoughts on the press conference? And welcome to the show. I own a government to touch on three things. Very fast number one was shameful. What that man did Trump from CNN CNN and should be investigated and who's worked hard motives number two. I'm glad that women are taking. Overdose or representatives. They work spending more than men do. Okay. And then a number three. Trump has an ace up. This waiver are Trump card up his sleeve that he can played any time. It was called working with big business. They can declare that pressure that any time that they want to and stop immigration is stop all this are sensical spending and create a world of pressure. That's all I want to sell a Jerry, you know, I just want to point out something. And I think it's been obvious to the viewers for a listener for a long period of time. Sure, we have some differences, and you call me out on occasion. When I don't know what v in my name means, you know, the Ellis cannon part. That's okay. I get it. What does it mean? Russia is a Russian. Russia. Well, ws are used in the German. Rush inside uses. But you know, what I'm saying? I guess I'm thinking to myself. You know, what you and I remind me of a little bit of Sonny and Cher that it made this morning because I knew that you were going to call sure we have little differences, but we make beautiful music. All Katie que. Did you notice that I'm part of every mom on Melissa? And I'm washing on German. I'm standing renaissance man, I'm everything I love the people on my more out of it. You know, I know you are. And so am I, but I tell you one thing I liked the best about you is part of your renaissance. I love when you play cello. You're a man of refined arts and winds, and we need we need you. So make sure you continue to make this your radio home. I'm a watchdog. That's all matters little watch soccer, a little bit about Mason. You you take. Hey, you too. Did I plan that? Yeah. A little bit. I can't lie. Get more people talking about Jerry. What I go out. It's it's beautiful. It's beautiful. All right. Let's go to Nancy. So quickly Nancy was at midterm, beautiful or not. Well, I guess it depends on how you look at it. There were winners and losers. How about that? I just want to say I live in Westmoreland county. And unfortunately, I lost Connor lamb as my congressman because of the redistricting, and I have a question for you. Why is why was guy resin stall allow to run in a district that he does not live in? Is there a law that allows congressman because he would he he would have had a run against Mike. Doyle had he ran in in the where his residency is. Well, no, I tell you what. Yes. And no hold on. Hold on. Hold on. Okay. Okay. Just give me a second. Here. You're talking about a district fourteen. And and he went he wins there. And there has been that question before, and I have read it, and I'm not going to mislead you. I can't remember the answer. So I will research it, and I will find it because I know that it's out there. But that's one thing number two. At least I know that that's an issue, for instance, with the PA Senate there is a lot of talk as a related Lindsay Williams and Shaffer, and we went last night in that with some detail with Mike Devaney on the TV side for two hours in our midterm coverage. And you know, there is a one year, I believe at least with the Harrisburg your in the. District would she satisfied up? But I think there's four years in the state, and that may not be satisfied matter of fact, it's relatively objective. We'll see whether or not that becomes a stink. Or not. In the meantime, I will research that and. Amelia's here media remind me that if you don't mind about the residency also speaking of Amelia when you call eight six six three nine hundred ten twenty alot Tara, okay. She's been putting together this presidential press conference with PJ and just want to lock today. One of the things that she's done is put night reads together lie spots, the promos that you hear me say, but this time it came with a little bit of a twist. So she has this little drying of what appears to be a cheerleader. Stick arms and legs and a little like cheerleader drafts. And it says Katie K on it and she highlighted it. You know hair and everything have a great show Ellis. And then the bottom it says in a in a in a like a thought bubble turn the page. You're almost done with promos, and it looks as if that same stick figure is running. And then at the end, there's the larger version of the cheerleader that says great show. I thought that was pretty important to pass along Sean in Toronto my scanner welcome to Cato K radio. You wanna talk about Nancy Pelosi? It was just checking a rut her, I guess rebate, or you know, she was talking about it. She says the aggravated me, really. Well, I say I'm glad in in many ways Democrats took the house because I think should always be one side owns one or the other that way everybody has a voice in it. Not just one side. Okay. Your wish and it really went along with one of the projects we talked about yesterday that was CBS's said two twenty five to two ten and I'll give you what their base wants to that later. But the bottom line is it's looking to be at least Saturday to thirty two to five. So you've got what you wanted. What what she says about was? They won based on healthcare healthcare healthcare healthcare. And then she said something that infuriated me because nobody really I think understand how we got the Affordable Care Act. And that was Justice Roberts rewrote, the law from the bench of the supreme court and turned it into a tax law. Justices anywhere cannot right law. What made me mad was when she was saying the checks and balances of the three equal branch of government where were the three equal branches sand. Whoa, judge you can't rewrite the law. Well, there, you know, look when he came down in favor of it any did the tax thing. The tax thing was on the table. He took it and ran with a lot of people. That's exactly what it was. He just took the covers off of it. Having said that I understand your concern. It needs fixed. It it's needed fixed. It was built up need fixed. It had a life expectancy. It doesn't. He totally blown up. I'm Alex cannon..

"No coming up later on this afternoon. We will hear from US Senator Bob, Casey. Why does he think he's worthy of one more term election? Covers tonight begins at seven we'll talk to Bill Rakoff who will be hosting details about that more today. Three to seven on the Katy k radio after the news. Looking forward to that. As always. And also looking forward to tomorrow replied, a bunch of tweets right now at cannon people are wired up. Nothing unusual though, I will say that. If if yesterday was the pre game of the midterms in today's game day tomorrow is gonna be the post game. And I guess maybe Thursday could be the twenty twenty peak. Joining me right now. However is my good friend Livia Benson, a Libya's a political consultant and analyst, and we appreciate her being with us. We worked together on TV quite often. And one of the things that I enjoy about her work in particular is her understanding of what's happening on the local level as in almost hyper local level, at least in contrast to the national material that dominates so much. She certainly is a very insightful with respect to the latter. But we wanted to hit and finish the show as we started in that being on the local level. Thank you so much alluvia. How are you? Thank you for having me, your giving me so much credit. I hope I deliver. Yes. You will. You will. I'm sure you always just do what you always do. We've been talking to Mike Devaney. We also have Jim burn on. We've talked about the US house and the Senate. Let's talk about a couple of those real quick. And I didn't go into great detail earlier with those men on this one, but the Williams and Schaefer race PA Senate district thirty eight that's been contentious from. I think the jump oh. From from day one. I'd argue they've kind of gone back and forth with each other over the summer. And then recently, we've seen the court cases and the signs so this one this looks pretty interesting. Yeah. And it's really wild. Because you know, as you say it's ended up more with court proceedings have just about anything else. But it's also one this looked at as a pretty close race is that right? Absolutely. And I think, you know, both candidates doing so well in the primary, so you know, knocking off incumbent, and then I think Lindsay one by her primary sixteen points. You're seeing that this one is really too close to call right now. I do think it is going to depend on turnout and seeing how many how much the campaigns can get their folks in their voters to the poll and also those last minute independent voters who's got, you know, someone working Kohl's that can talk to those folks and get them on their side guy of dollar. I suspect he's going to win in district fourteen. He seems to be in many respects, the next big thing hate to trivialize it. But what are your thoughts? Do you see him winning that race? There haven't been. I mean too much on the ground saying anything, otherwise, I also think that you know, just with his rise in history. He really does run a well oiled machine, and I don't see anything deviating from that over the next couple of hours. Alright US house district sixteen Kelly versus Dina coal versus demon. You take a look at Dina cola, and that's been much more of a race in a lot of people anticipated. If in fact, there's a referendum vote on the president. This would seemingly be a perfect example considering how close congressman is to the president. Oh, absolutely. I think those are great bellwether for Democrats to see, you know, Kim, they get voters in Pennsylvania to support them outside of those, you know, population hubs in Pittsburgh, and Jill Adelphia and seeing you know, it does their message really Carey in more suburban and rural districts. I think that's a great test for them. I also think you know, those folks that. Might have supported the president in twenty sixteen. Maybe those Democrats that crossed over do they returned home for this race and do they support Dina cola? That's the question. Yeah. Olivia Benson with us. That's a great point. We've talked as well about that earlier, and that is the whole idea of people Belan ship, or you know, going across what they did previously. And that's that's something. I'm very very interested in what the exit polls show locally and nationally as well in district forty six P A Senate Craig versus Bartolotta bartolottas been around. Oh, absolutely. And I I don't think there's too many people that are unhappy with her performance. What would you have a candidate? Who's really kind of personalize this race and talked about his story and connected with a lot of voters. Again, it really just depends on turn out which seemed like it's pretty high at this point. But do those folks again, do they turn out for James Craig or do they stick with Bartolotta? We have some other districts as well that you know, may not get a lot of attention. But I know you enjoy them. I wanna talk a little bit about up in cranberry Butler, Daryl Metcalfe, the incumbent, you know, he he's he's obviously a lightning rod for a lot of different things. And he's a big opposed by Daniel Smith and district twelve and of course, the Pennsylvania house, we talked about this last night with Adam tra- gone. He looks at it as more as a by guess issue regarding a beginning combat than anything else. How do you see it? I do what I've seen lately. And specifically today's you having comments that are in my opinion, working harder than they worked in the past. They've been at the polls there talking to voters. They're trying to remind them of their records are the good parts of their records. I think with this race what you see is the personal attacks have definitely gotten out of hand. And I think they have and they will in some cases motivate a candidate to come out and not necessarily vote for a motive motivate a voter to come out not necessarily to vote for a candidate. But to vote against something that they just don't like whether it's the rhetoric or whether it's you know, the personal choices of another candidate. So I think this one's going to be interesting as all they're all interesting. I can't help it. But I really do see it looks like it's going to be close. But what's interesting is? You know, you have so throughout the day that have talked about how voting is higher. But you those those folks that are voted during the day or folks that are typically made a plan rights. They might be. The elderly and they had to coordinate rides. They might work different schedules and the typical nine to five so they, you know, maybe one on their lunch break. But what is interesting is. When you see that kind of five to eight rush where you have folks that, you know, these are the people that didn't necessarily have a plan didn't have flexible schedules to come out during the day, and they're heading to the polls, no matter what. So how those voters break I think is going to determine a lot of the races, by the way if we're not taking calls right now. But you cannot obviously text us and it's easy to do that. And we can always get to those later. Eight six six three nine hundred ten twenty is your number that text line. Brought to you by right automotive. The best deal in Pittsburgh going through some midterms local level here with Livia Benson Olivia. You'd said something about the turnout, and you know, that's been a big issue of what I've talked to a lot of folks about today. It seems like it's pretty high. What are you a take from that? I know it's not a very imperial thing. We don't have a lot of exit polls. But what are your thoughts on that? I think that the campaigns Republican democrat. Independent. Whoever have done a great job of getting folks, you know, how having steely urgency of coming out to vote? I think what I've seen it actually I texted a friend, and they described the the turn out a hefty which I've never heard before. But I think that says a lot you kind of the urgency of the race. And a lot of folks seem to be really excited about certain candidates in certain races. And they're coming out to support those candidates. I think it's good. I think, you know, maybe some of our polling places are a little overwhelmed because they're not used to sing this amount of turn out for mid term. But I think overall it's a great thing it really again just depends on who those folks are coming out to the floor, and and right now it's too early to tell. Sure, all right. Let's adjourn for now. We're gonna come back. Another segment with Olympia Benson. And we'll go through a few more of the racist, perhaps some in your backyard as well. And we'll continue till the top of the hour. We're going to go over to Shelby for the traffic. Now you hold on. If you don't mind Livia, and we'll be right. Back. I'm Ellis cannon. A little Neil.

"All right. Just a quick reset here L scanning. So Dan calls, and he says, you know, the media including myself for making this about Donald Trump. And I point out to him that number one. Donald Trump has made it about himself. And number two. I just had a Republican political consultant on. Mike Devaney see Mike works with Republican candidates. Okay. And I believe he said something very close to. Every midterm is reflection on the president. That's well established in the world of American politics. This isn't slant. This isn't. Bias or opinion. And when you take a look at what's happened since the end of World War Two. Where you've had a net loss of twenty six house seats and four Senate seats on average. For the party of the sitting president. I'm not making that up. Those are facts. I have in front of me. Graphs. It showed the midterm hit. Of Bill Clinton, a ninety eight George Bush. No to Ronald Reagan in eighty six h w in ninety Richard Nixon and seventy Gerald Ford. Seventy four Jimmy Carter in seventy eight Clinton in ninety four Barack Obama ten Reagan and eighty to a bomb in fourteen GW in oh, six what their job approval ratings were. And what? The change was. If facts don't cut through. I don't know how to help you come on. Come on. Riches in new Ken mellow scanner. Welcome to the show. Oh, good. Correct. Action pop down. But I think. I think you've covered. The callers I came in late. Conversation is a bottom up about the state reps out there the energy going on. No, I live in the young men who who's writer for stay. Seventeen thousand stores. But my vote is another election election. No question. And I'm good. Yeah. No. No, no. I think you're I think you're right. There's a lot about the grassroots element of this. And we're gonna Benson on to talk about it. It's one of her specialties talked about it on TV and that's Pacific race last night. So you wanna stick around for when we get to it at thirty five. But I appreciate your point of view. I think that it is important again, we we nationalize and so forth. I just gave facts all right as as they relate to presidents and so forth. But I've fascinated by how it really is. All we've together by the diversity of all the different, countries and jurisdictions and electoral district that to me is fascinating stuff. Make me a geek. But that's okay. I appreciate it. Thanks, man. I appreciate it. Good gigs or good. Why don't know what that meant salmon Shailer? Sam welcome to the show. Hey, thanks. I think we have a problem after the fourth precinct. I finally found we're supposed to vote. But here's the problem. I needed a provincial. Ballot. None. None of the three precincts knew what I was talking about. They knew they heard of it, and they looked around and so forth to make the story. Short on the fourth precinct. The judge of election knew what she was doing. And I did catch that provincial ballots. My suggestion is if you can either you or mangino or somebody before days over if you could get someone on the line Ellis to come on your show and quickly explain this provincial ballot. Which no one knows what the heck I'm talking about. Well, listen, I appreciate you asked me to do that Sam and Manji knows in bullpen right now. He's listening, and perhaps he could do that. I'm booked to after a few minutes here. But there's a lot online. There's a lot on the county website, folks. There's a lot on the trip and the post gazette we have a wonderful job done a little bit ago. A lot of that information as well in front of me.

"A. Everybody. Welcome back to Kate. Okay. Radio midday Ellis cannon here for another hour with you taking calls to the bottom of this hour, then we're gonna go, hyper local we're going to be looking at some very interesting local races down ballot. If you will we're gonna have a Libya Benson on to discuss that. She is really developed a quite a bit of information and knowledge and insight into those areas. So we're lucky to have her aboard later in the show. Speaking of local I've spent most of my time with you. Terms of calls focusing on the local aspect of where you're voting, and what you're seeing what you're feeling what you're being told how long you're waiting. Are. You turn out. We're getting lottery report. So that as being a longer than normal and a lot of expectation is roses pointed out that we will in fact. See perhaps record numbers for midterm. And there's a big anticipation of that around the country. We know what's motivating it. Either. Your loving, your local candidates are congressional candidates or for that matter. You are looking at this in a more overarching way as relates to the president, and he's very much on the ballot and very much. A pivoting point through which a lot of people make these decisions today. Eight six six three nine one ten twenty gets you a aboard rose because it is a course midterms two thousand eighteen wearing rose colored sunglasses there in the shape of a heart. You could be Joe steel four day by calling eight six three nine hundred ten twenty and telling us what the experience has been is or otherwise what you anticipate at your polling venue. The good news in all this. As is that it's been a long road, and it's going to be over tonight or sour tomorrow morning or tomorrow. We've talked about this endlessly before I got on Katie Cao's doing it every night seemingly on television on P CNC. So this is this is a combination of sorts. The better news is at eight. Oh, one twenty twenty begins. Just to hit you up with that. I saw a couple of numbers. I just want to reflect one more time on the jumped out at me CBS. Battleground tracker finds seventy two percent of Americans say they vote today. And it'll be about President Trump thirty four to support him thirty eight to oppose them. We'll see how close at gets. And what alternately the result of that is another thing that jumped out at me before I jump on you. Is this? This is just completely different than what you see for midterms. Ninety three percent of voters in battleground districts say they their vote in this midterm election matters, just as much or more as in a presidential election, nearly seventy percents a just as much which is unbelievable when you talk about the president. That's all you need to know and twenty six even more. Wow. If you just joined just thank you, and you missed a lot. But the good thing is you can go to Katie K radio dot com. And you could get the podcast downloaded. You could listen to them. It's quite easy. We had Jim burn in as our special guests at twelve thirty five hour and Republican political consultants from cold spark media, Mike Devaney outstanding work is always at one thirty five both have two segments. All right. Let's go to Penn hills since start with Joyce Joyce. What was your voting experience like? Well, I'm rolling this morning. I myself going to work, and I was number one you wow. Another to. And even so working to eight o'clock, and he was still done the poll headquarter till with me. So that we could get in. My son though, did at eleven thirty and already Dan already topped the amount eleven thirty that they would have bought all day. Wow. Well, so you were the early bird, you, you you and your husband and your son came along. But two three hours later in. It's already blown out numbers. Yes. Wow. What are you take of that? What are you? If I asked you what your thought was it could be it doesn't have to be partisan at all. But just tell me any reaction you had when you were experiencing that well, I believe that he wants partisan. I know that the person to behind me they came in afterward. Would you really all revved up about this a referendum on this property test hike education? She was all concerned about that. Even in our family. He was concerned that state house actually really voted on that yet. And if we're voting on this money, and they have a really voted to what to do with the money yet that money may not go where we intended to go. And I. Thought about that. So is more local. And I appreciate Sharon that experience because it does serve as a reminder as we put out many times, we nationalized you make it all monolithic and so forth. We have to remember these districts east candidates like Mike just put they all really do matter and particularly the issues within them. We don't want to forget that and throw one-size-fits-all. It's got to John McDonald, you visited two polls. Are you appalled visitor? John. Not really my mom votes in a different than I do and she's ninety. So I told her very very nice. Hey, it's my mom. That's right. Did you see? Harley anything. Oh. Mcdonald? And I think we were like one of four people in air and on the machine she was number fifty six. Then I vote over in Cecil township, and I was one of two people voting. And that was about how far does. Oh, wow. So it's not there. I mean, people aren't showing up yet. Oh, no, not at all. Now is this fifty six fifty six numbers is reflective of what anything is that standard. Or is it a little high little low? Oh, swayed low way way way low. All right, John, thanks for joining the service taken your mother. It's very nice. I have literally less than a minute to go. But I can get a lot out of Dan in that timeframe Danny into north hills. Thanks so much. Thanks for having me on always a pleasure. I have not voted yet. I'm going to vote. So I don't know what to expect I expect higher numbers. But it drives me crazy when people in the media like yourself, and and it seems like that's the intention is to make it about Trump. What people seem never seen understand that didn't vote for Trump was that it's not voting for Trump was not about Trump. It was about a change in how. I recommend. It drives me crazy that they try to keep baking about Trump. It's not. And yet look I recognize that substantively, and I've talked about that they in. However, we would be foolish if we didn't recognize the president himself has said repeatedly. Although he said just the opposite repeatedly that I'm on the ballot. This a referendum on me. Because the media has made it that way. They've made it adversary. Oh between Republicans. Wait, wait. Hold on, Danny. I'm quoting the man. And you're saying that when he tells these people with the carnivals that he holds that we are voting on me. That's the media making it that way. The media's already painted a picture. He's just he's flowing into it. Okay. Thanks, dan. I appreciate that. All right. We appreciate all the calls. We're gonna come right back.

"This is very nice. It's very nice Mike Devaney with us, of course, Republican political consultant cold spark media, as we go through the mid is takes on a variety of issue issues. Mike, a listener first of all the house cook political report says they have seventy Republican held seats as competitive I saw sixty nine in Washington Post poll here about two weeks ago. Obviously that's far more than the twenty three seats Dem's need to take control. Republicans are in better shape told the Senate for a couple of reasons one because Democrats are forced to defend ten seats in states that Trump won in two thousand sixteen. There's a lot of peeling back that has to happen here. The bottom line is if in fact, there are so many seats, I believe it's thirty five seats up for re election in the Senate, but they're already held for debt by Dem's. There's not that much place to go. You've gotta have flips looking at the Senate is that why it's gonna be that much more difficult for the dams to take control of the Senate while the Senate was definitely more fertile ground for Republicans going into the cycle. And tonight some of the races to really focus on are gonna be places such as Nevada State. You're gonna wanna look at Missouri, Missouri is held by Claire mccaskill democrat the Republican is up, but it's within the margin of error. You know, people have talked about Texas. I think that's going to be perfectly fine win for the Republican there. But. There are a number of states that are that are very close at the polling has within the margin of air. I think we're going to pick up Indiana Senator Joe democratic Senator Joe Donnelly us down in the polls looks like that can be a pickup. But you know, the Senate is going to most likely be the bright spot for the Republicans. Now, this is potentially a wave election. The question is what kind of wave is this a Lake Erie wave just say the big one in Hawaii. And if it's the big one a lot of these seats that are within the margin of error could really tilt the other way, I think that'd be the only significant risk and Republicans losing the US Senate. I think there's an opportunity for us to that actually pick up a few Tennessee. It's another one Tennessee right in the margin of error right now. I think I think Republicans are gonna actually a hold that seat. That was. Of retiring Senator Bob corker. I think we're gonna be okay there. But again, all of these are very very tight. So it's gonna be an interesting night in watching the Senate race. Mike Devaney is on the radio mic. One thing that jumps out you you try not to get too weedy of some of this. But on the other hand you have to you have to peel back a little bit. I'm sorry can't dumb to sing all down where it's just one or the other, and it's all monolithic and everything everything is nationalized. It just it doesn't make sense. Well, candidates matter campaigns matter I think we're unfortunately seeing a little bit of that at the top of the ticket here in Pennsylvania. In close races. The money makes a significant difference in that usually comes with candidates were strong candidates who have good organization. So you know, is Trump, you know, in your view on him. You know, really something that is casting a pall in some ways and some of the states. Yes. But again, you know candidates these are individual racists, these are individual choices. And and and those campaigns matter the way they're conducted. What did you see some of the higher profile local races? Well, I think the governor's race. If you take a look at that, it has been a, you know, all the public polling has that probably in double digits. Also, Lou Barlow think's gonna do a little better against Bob, Casey. But there's a real problem when you have the top of the ticket losing potentially by those margins and we saw this in two thousand six when Lynn Swann was on the ballot and the Republicans lost control of the state legislature. There are real consequences when you have your two top of the ticket races. Underperformed, Mike what well wh-? Ballot fatigue. When you get down. If you're voting democrat democrat getting someone to switch over to vote Republican people drop off people don't come to the polls because sometimes you are state Senate race or your state rep race isn't really what motivates you. It's not what you're seeing a lot of what you're being fed in terms of the paid media. And so it can also depress turnout cell had those races been closer. I think that that would have saved a couple of Republican state house or state Senate seats, and look, you know, the polls are still open people should get out there and go I'm based in this largely on what I've been seeing in public polling, but but that's a real challenge. I mean, I remember in two thousand two working on Mike Fisher's gubernatorial race and look into it. We knew that Ed Rendell was gonna win. But Mike Fisher knew that he was the standard bearer of the Republican party. He had a responsibility to conduct himself in a way that tried to keep those majorities, and he was able to keep those majorities in. I didn't see as much of that in this race lamb and Rothfusz to you know, obviously, the only. Race with two incumbents. Heather was on yesterday. Heather, hi Tobar. And she said I'm going to Keith that's contrary to a lot of polls. Yeah. I think it's a member member race. It has been a very expensive race. It's been one of the most targeted races in the country. Unfortunately, for Keith the national Democrats have raised so much money. And the Republicans have not kept pace that a few weeks back the Republican national money had to pull out which is is never a good sign. I I'd like Heather to to be right. Keith is a good, man. He's an honorable man. And if he comes up short today, you know, unlike some other folks who were defeated it's not gonna be because of his conduct. He's gonna leave with, you know, high favors says unfav, but it's just going to be kind of this Connor lamb phenomenon that was birthed out of his win against Rick's account. And, you know, look if the battle for congress is very close if it's a couple of votes, you look back to that special election because they had the Republicans perhaps nominated a stronger candidate. There wouldn't be a con- congressman, Connor lamb. There wouldn't be a Connor lamb running against run against Keith Rothfusz. I think you go back to that special. And you see that that really did have have a domino effect. But I think that it is part of the challenge for Keith as well as it is the suburban districts that are really challenges right now for Republicans, and he certainly represents serve in Pittsburgh, suburban better educated, and so forth, Republican political consultant, Mike, Devaney, cold spark media, always enjoy working with the Mike. Thanks for coming out. Thanks for being a studio. Thanks for your insight analysis. Thanks else. Appreciate all, right. We'll come back back after we have Shelby with the traffic..

"Now. Eight six six three nine one ten twenty. Although we have our good friend Mike Devaney on with us till the top of the hour two segments with Mike, and then we'll have calls from about two oh five to thirty. And then we have a Livia Benson talking about some down ballot races here in the area. Also, you can text us that same number eight six six three nine hundred ten twenty. That's brought to you by right automotive. The best deal in Pittsburgh. I've had the opportunity to work with Mike. A handful of times of always been impressed of always enjoyed the conversation. The dialogue the the intellect and the back and forth. And I'm sure this'll be no different. I I'm on radio. Mike you're in studio, which is a rarity. First of all, I really don't use guests a lot. And now I've got a couple here in a few days. Thanks for being here. And it's nice to be in studio studios. Well, great, thanks Alison honor to be here. Well, I'll tell you one thing. Mike, of course, Republican political consultant with a cold spark media. I went to this headline yesterday. It was in a Sunday Washington Post, this midterm election is like no other in a generation overstatement or pretty close. Well, I think it's a bit of an overstatement. I mean, if you look at historically if you look at midterm elections. The president's first term presidents. Traditionally are losing seats. I think the average is twenty eight there has been an unbelievable amount of money spent particularly by the Democrats in this election. I think in many ways they are still shell shocked by the fact that Hillary Clinton lost that election. If you and I were sitting here two years ago, I probably would have been pessimistic about Donald Trump's chances. So I think between the media and the activists in the democratic of core constituency they have been plotting and planning for this probably since day after the election. Well, let me ask you about a number that I read earlier from CBS news. This does a vote comparison current compared to presidential election. This is to me astonishing the president mentioned now everybody talks about midterms as a hot item. Whereas that certainly has never well, it's not often the case. Ninety three percent of voters in battleground districts say their vote in this midterm, election matters, just as much or more as a presidential election. Sixty seven percent of people. They surveyed said just as much twenty six percent says it matters more what's at speak to. Well. I think it speaks to the fact that there are a lot of people engaged on both sides of the of the spectrum here, and these type of elections are largely referendums on the president there largely referendums on the administration, and we have had a high level of of interest in this race. And and I think you know, some of the numbers were hearing about the larger turnout. These are the things that we look at us people who follow this professionally and that is how many people are going to come out and vote the traditionally do not vote in this type of an election. Presidential elections are high information flow elections people talk about that. They know the candidates. They watched the debates midterm congressional and Senate elections are usually lower information flow elections, but in this year, it's it's been elevated in a lot of ways, I think one of the good. Things is you've you've had more people engage in the process. We'll we'll see later tonight or tomorrow, we look at the final numbers in terms of who have come out. But it it does seem to me that we're going to have an increased number of people voting than traditionally do in sleep midterm elections. We seem to be getting a lot of feedback from people out in the field reports. Otherwise, saying that's what we're seeing here in the area. What does that what's your take on that? Well, my my take on election day reports is not much. I know we're on the phone all day talking to people I hear the turnouts low. Here are people are coming out. I hear from somebody else. It's a low turnout it, you know, you really don't know we've even seen in the big presidential races where there's exit polling. You know that that's that's broken as well. So today, we're in the fog of war, and it's just really an opportunity that have people get out there. I never quite thought of this. I we've gone through this together including last week on TV. We've talked about independence. We've talked about women. We've talked about suburbia we've done almost every I think demographic you can't. But as introduced to an. Today, and one of the models that CBS ran and that is the idea of crossover in one of the models actually has an increase number of. Ah voters for Donald Trump in two thousand sixteen who are voting for Dem's. Now, they have other models that suggests otherwise I is that something that could be of any relevance as you sit here now, or is that going to be a straight line thing. I think largely it's gonna be a little bit more straight line. And this is about intensity which party is going to get their their folks out. I know that the Trump sixteen voters that came out many new voters that pollsters and professionals like myself or not accounting for heading into that election. We're going to be watching them this cycle to see if when they came out to vote for Trump for the first time if was that a one off, you know, because he has such a unique character spoke to them in ways that we quite frankly didn't see are they gonna come out in participate in a congressional election to help protect him. I think that's going to be one of the important things we look at. But largely believe that this is a base election. And and you are going to see Democrats coming out largely supporting large sporting Democrats were. Lukens coming out largely supporting Republicans, which means you're really at the stage where you are, you know, focused on turn out of your folks church referendum on the president all every midterm election is a referendum on the president. It's about personality, but it's also on the positive about the economy. It's about tax cuts. It's about supreme court, but at the end of the day midterm elections are largely referendums on the president a lot of the opposition to the president in an is is cast in a variety of ways. But if I could just make it very simple, it'd be the rhetoric the style, and there are those who point to the substance and policy and results as being more. That's that's an interesting dynamic to me. Because I think there's a lot more motion attached to the former than the latter. And I feel a lot of emotion in the air. What do you think? I agree with you. I mean, I think if you look at the facts, and if you're looking at the economic facts in terms of job numbers, if you're looking at record low unemployment for African Americans record low unemployment for employment for Hispanics. There's a lot of good news in the economy, usually people vote as our friend James Carville, always said, it's the economy stupid, but you know, so much of this has been tied up to your point in the in the emotional side of this. And you know, the question that I have is that the people who see President Trump on the news at night and do not like him and turn it off till her husband turned that off the people who are at cocktail parties. Saying can you believe this guy's our president are those people who don't traditionally vote in midterm elections gonna come out and vote are they still gonna go out there and complain. And I think that the Republicans look, you know, they've had a good. They've had a good run. They've controlled the Senate. They've controlled the house now the presidency, and it's a lot harder to motivate. When you're in charge. It's a little easier to be motivated when when you feel your counted out. So the question is what these Republic. It's going to be able to to rally, and and really try to protect those majorities. I think that's what the president's tapping into. And he hits immigration is hard as he has. Because I think the reports I received were that he considered one great campaign ad that focused on the economy is boring despite the good news. It sounds counterintuitive to not lead with that. But I think he's going with his gut, which is what you've mentioned a moment ago and we've been talking about emotion triggers turnout. Well, and President Trump is obviously a very different political figure than we have seen in the modern era if not ever, and he certainly does trust his gut his got has been helpful to him throughout throughout his business life in his political life. He's in a position that no one quite frankly thought that he would be in in the kind of prognosticator political class. And so at this stage, I think he is throwing some things up immigration is a red hot issue it cuts both ways. But I think to your point he is trying to channel what he thinks quote, unquote. People are interested in and to really try to rally that base. All right. We'll see how it turns out. Mike is with us for one more segment. Just joining us. We have Mike Devaney in studio. I also want to break down a little bit more specifically the house and the Senate seats, I'm Ellis cannon. You're listening to k decay radio. It's.

"Eight six six three nine hundred ten twenty Jim Byrne was just with us to thirty five really gonna look down ballot at some races in your neighborhood with the Livia Benson. The most expensive midterm in history. Turn out at nearly presidential election levels from the president says. Basically that people would say midterms, and they would say what does that? What does that mean? Now, it's like the hottest thing. Yes. Mr President it is and you get people out to vote. There's no question about it. All right now. What does that mean? And where do we expect it to go? Obviously, we're going to do the best. We can to continue to support a variety of scenarios the Dem's do win the house. They don't wear does Pennsylvania fit into all of that. Senate and of course, our local races statewide races. And and more one thing. I am particularly interested in is. If you have voted, and you could give us a sense, you could be Joe steel four-day, you could be the reporter out there. You could be the field, man. You could be the filled woman. You can be the one that says, I waited I never wait. It was long. It was I got a higher number that. I normally get all that I need that. We all need that. I want that. Okay. Let's do some local with that. We'll mix everything else together which takes me, Dan, who's been on hold George is been on hold for a while. Because he's he's calling from Claritin city, and he has a voting report correspondent, George, what's on your mind. Mr John Delano today. Mr. sly, probably what's out. Oh, okay. That's good. How are you my friend? All right, pretty excited, man. I can't wait to the days over in a sense to see what the results are. But it's fun to see the fiber and people walking back and forth. Desert a vote and talking election today at something. I haven't seen since I was a kid in the sixties jobs. Wow. You mean like three hundred sixty. About an hour and half ago when I voted for two hours, but I couldn't wait to go vote. And I asked what number am I should sixty. I think three sixty one which is outrag that's way up there. There you go. I mean. Does that mean anything other than a lot of people vote? It does you know? I think a lot of people are either gonna standard around, you know, I put Trump in. But I always said if I was that would help take him out in a nice sense. Of course, I think a lot of people either standing her ground supporting a lot of it's a body. And I'm I'm watching the guys at ten common in upstate the benefits for older folks to very concerned about that. It's it's funny. I I think you frame the issue perfectly. Well, it's really whether the Democrats have been energized enough by animosity. You know, Jim Byrne was on earlier, and he was talking about the rhetoric and so forth. And I understand the reaction to that. I understand animosity relative to how things have been done. But on the other hand, you can't ignore the policy, and so ultimately, there's this incredibly different type of scenario than we typically have with presidents who aren't on the ballot. But all right very much hovering within it. And you have to separate the style from the substance, and that's true. We hear so much about Trump's base of which I may have been at one point nine totally. But I forget to turn the Hillary called us. It wasn't too nice. But I just to see the democratic base, which is extremely vast. They did say that it's a very vast bowl poll of American citizens that come under their Democratic Party. And that's what it's all about. You know, just one way of thinking we got we gotta ever suspect each other's attitudes and opinions of policy and make your work now. And thanks a lot George. Appreciate that. Correspondent george. Funny because I read something as well here during one of the brakes, and it I think I've read it to you. Thank getting to too many numbers. The bottom line is when they when they do these projections on who's going to do what? And how it's gonna turn out. It's amazing. How they literally the pollsters. The experts for whatever it's worth big asterisk, it'll be there forever now based on a sixteen how much of it gets into. Very very specific districts, very specific districts that are obviously called battleground districts, and so for instance, I believe that the cook political report very good very very good classifies seventy Republican held seats as competitive seventy. So you could see where there's an upside if you're democrat. Whereas you gotta play a lot of defense. If you're not. But when you look at the Senate dams have to defend ten seats were Trump won in two thousand sixteen. Now, what are the questions isn't just independence? But one of the big questions is what about people that voted for Donald Trump, Allah, George who may be going in a different direction and crossing over. Now. Because the days Robinson. Hey, what's going on? My man. I'm Welby CD. Hey, listen. I I get a complimentary. Jim burn is actually a personal friend of mine. I got to know him thirty years ago when easy young mare millville, great guy, and we we're one hundred eighty degrees up lyrically, but he's a wonderful guy smart and very capable. You're lucky to have him as a guest on your show. He's a good body. And I'll tell you what I I've argued with him myself. And I think that that's you know, he's more than willing to do that. And and in responsibly. So. Exactly. I mean, Jim is not a guy that loses. This is not a flame thrower. He's he's a he's a I consider him a good friend. Now, what do you got today? So when I got today is. I'm gonna talk locally. Yeah. I think. No, I'm a I'm a Republican. I'm part of a Republican committee out in Robinson township. And. What makes me sad is Republican is we don't we are not nearly as good as the Democratic Party about organization. We we we think we we don't have a plan. We don't have a good leadership, and that's one of the things that I'm trying to fix, but I really think that at the local level if you're not engage. In some point in finding out the right way to run a campaign getting the right candidates identified identifying the right issues, and you're not gonna be affected. Well, you I gotta cut you short. I know you held for a while. But I gotta get to a break. I would only I go one step further. I'd flip this nobody beats framing a party or an issue. I don't mean framing in a criminal way. I mean framing. An issue or a party or a topic or a person better than the Republicans? They do that much better than Democrats. That's one big reason. For instance, you see the president pounding on immigration. He doesn't have any opposition. I mean, at least in terms of candidates. He could certainly go with the with the economy. A lot in his party would like him to do that the flip side of that is he's assuming you already know that got to be careful because a lot of people assume things in two thousand sixteen and the other party what's going on in your poll.

"Jim burns on the phone with us as we wrap up one more segment with him your calls on the back half of the hour. Well, more specifically for about one. Oh, five to one thirty five built to show. Just like I did yesterday. Guests at the bottom you at the top. We'll be joined by Mike Devaney a little bit later. Olivia Benson going down ballot at two thirty five great midterm election coverage. Jim thanks again. I want to ask you just locally for a moment. We often talk about the Trump effect in this and that, but locally what are you looking for what I'm looking for locally is is turn out like you alluded to in the first segment that we had together in. Yes. More often than not high turnout is not people coming out because they are ecstatic about the status quo in in low and locally in these races mock up in the Schiller Allegheny valley area, my senatorial district district thirty eight. Randy wlac of its Republican incumbent defeated in a primary. You have Jeremy Shafer running against Lindsay Williams in that seat by all intensive was supposed to be a safe Republican seat. It is not it is in play. Look at the leader Republican Mike up in that house district. Emily scope comes in. And she is polling very very well. Keep an eye on that race. There's been a lot of good ground activity by these candidates stand in June the county Democratic Party elected in new chairwoman. I lean Kelly and I've worked with her since June is her solicitor, and I am really impressed with the work. She's done to rebuild party infrastructure and connect with the candidates in the men and women of the party. So the ground game and the grassroots. I've seen on the democratic side here locally Ellis. It's the type of equation we used when I was state chairman to recognize big wins the Democrats in allegany should have a good day. Statewide depends Democrats after sixteen. Had nowhere to go. But up they're going to have a good night. To before we go any further on the state, and I definitely want to go through that for a moment. I have a caller on Diana. And I'm going to get a little bit later in the comments that is in front of me says socialism equals communism. I'll talk about that. But we've now seen in our region, the term socialist attached to democrat. And there are some people that Blanchet that how do you see and characterize that from your perspective? Well, I think the mischaracterization in fact, I am sure the miss characterizations. They're coming with the use of the word socialist here and nationally is a sign of fear by those who are afraid of positive change because you have to put this together and read it in its entirety. These you're talking about the democratic socialists and look at the talking points and look at what they're campaigning on an quite frankly what they're winning on their winning on expanding a middle-class. They're winning on. Affordable healthcare. They're winning on affordable college education. They're winning essentially on the platform that Franklin Roosevelt who himself was a democratic socialist. They're winning on the platform of Franklin Roosevelt back in nineteen thirty. This is this generation's new deal platform. And quite frankly, you know, the Democratic Party wants to bring everybody in and represent all interests. That's what I love so much about it. But when the Republicans, and Mr. Trump and others are taking the talking points, the fundamental, building blocks of what built your party and using it against you. It's time to get back to basics. And that's what the DNC candidates Sarah number auto, summer league, Lindsay Williams and others have been doing and been doing successfully it's about hitting the reset. Let's get back to the basic things that built this nation that are used to save this nation and win some races. And put people in office the represent everybody one twenty on attorney clock here. Jim, let's look at the big guys. Running course statewide, Bob, Casey. And of course, the governor no one wants to say shoo-in, but I'm saying shoo-in. Yeah. These races are called one minute after eight last night. Look, I mean, you know, th the both of them haven't done anything to create any controversy. Those races will be called quickly. You know, this is the first time we run out the new congressional districts in Pennsylvania. Which is another reason why say the PA Dem's should have a good night. Bob Brady's all district in Philly district. One that's in play in districts, five six and seven. Congressional Democratic Party has women candidates strong qualified women candidate very happy about that. Those could win and watch my Kelly up here in sixteen look for the upset Ronnie Dina cola out of Erie, former marine lawyer, he's giving my Kelly run. I think Connor Williams gonna win convincingly here as well and seventeen. Yeah. I gotta tell you what to Kelly seat wasn't. He was supposed to get touched and talk about a referendum on Trump that that is exhibit. A that's it is LS because in sixteen the I seventy nine corridor. I saw the county numbers. They went big for Trump. And that's Democrats. I am not seeing that in the pulling up and down seventy nine and eighteen. Like the president and his friends thought they would see there are no coattails for Mr. Trump in two thousand eighteen. All right. See you tonight on TV side in the first or second hour both. I'm with you at eight. And then I think I'm staying into the nine o'clock. We'll some quality time, always a pleasure. Absolutely. Thanks so much and we'll see tonight on mytalk all the best.

I wanna talk to Mike Devaney at one thirty five cold spark media Republican consultant about how he looks at it. Nationally the house which obviously is going to be inclusive of Pennsylvania and locals. The Senate, and ultimately how much of this is a referendum on the president. And ultimately, we're going to have a Libya Benson with us a two thirty five democrat political analyst, and she's going to really do something very important. She's going to be talking about the local races, you know district. What district this is maybe districts that a lot of you don't know. But a lot of you do. And it is amazing. How we not only nationalized races. We marginalize local races to a certain extent now that seems inconsistent on its face, and I get it. Here's what I mean. We have special elections around the country over the last year, year and a half. None of us know who these people are. None of us care. None of us have any idea what the issues are in Georgia are Oklahoma wherever they ban, and yet we all see it on television television television has this huge referendum, and this and that and so forth. So to that extent, we have nationalized these races on the flip side. These races are in fact about the local. Particularly the house, particularly state and. State house and Senate seats. Those are local. Make no mistake. The overarching issue in these midterms is Donald Trump. He shifts grounds a little bit as to whether or not he's on the ballot or not seemingly more often than Nadia said. Look, I'm on the ballot. You're voting for me or you're not. But I want to go a little bit further into detail. One thing. I am looking from. You however. By eight forty five. I had three phone calls from people who were. Astonished by the voter number. They had already received. Meaning that by eight forty five they had already gone to their foe of voting area. They had already cast a vote and instead of being in a single digit. They were well into doubles or instead of being in the doubles zipper. Well in the triples, and it was interesting. First of all, they called me second of all. I said yesterday I had a job for you. And the job was going to be about telling me slash us about your polling experience. I put that on Twitter at Ellis cannon moments ago, along with our guests. I want to hear from you out in the field. I mean, I don't mean this in a bad way. But if it's about, you know, my ballotbox didn't work or what have you call call the county. I'm more interested in. What it was like did you wait in line? When did you get there? Three of these people two of whom have Republican backgrounds told me that they had for whatever feeling reason a strong vibe that it was a democratic type of vote. Obviously there is nothing. Empirical about it. It was what they felt. And it's it's funny. Because as I thought about it afterwards. I wondered to myself, we know people are coming out. CBS news has a background tracker to said seventy two percent of Americans say they vote today will be about President Trump that seventy two percent, let's round that the seventy five three out of four. Thirty four percent will vote to support him. Thirty eight percent will vote to oppose him. Now, we've all heard about all of the projections and the polls, and these are my final numbers, and blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. And as I've told you many times that's now in the past. Because today's day today's the gift that we have in this country. And we're gonna find out once again what the true poll is the only poll is. But if you were at a polling venue today, I want to hear from you. Now, why these people said Democrats, I don't know. But. The only thought that went through my mind. That we could share as additional talking point in the first half of every hour till three o'clock is not only your field reports. What it was like you're pulling that was same as ever gives walk right in your in and out stood line for thirty minutes. What? Is this simple type question. If you're gonna come out like that you come out that strong to play defense or do you come out that strong to play offense? My gut tells me that if those types of numbers are coming out just like they did in sixteen. It was about offense not protecting. What is there? That is about as precise as the Dallas knife. You can imagine. We'll find out from the experts how precise it alternately is. But right now, I want to hear from you toll free eight six six three nine one ten twenty.
