"Six, but now let's get back to Michael Berry NewsRadio, 1055 Ilhan Omar is a member of Congress. And she is one of the three most famous members of Congress right now, for all the wrong reasons. Democracy works when people get involved, but good candidates have to step up and put themselves out in the public light. You can't beat Ilhan Omar without a good candidate who can raise money and will do a good job in Congress. I think we got one. His name is Lacey Johnson, and he is running in Minnesota's fifth Congressional district, and he is making a lot of waves. And I think you're about to see why. Lacey before we get too what a wonderful congressman you're going to make. And what an amazing life you have lived. You had to run against incumbent which had to mean that you decided she wasn't doing a good job and you would do a better one. Why run against Ilhan Omar? Person foremost, I am a carrying question a problem solver, and I've been living in one of the poorest zip coals in Minnesota. Ever since I've been here 40 years, So I've seen a lot of just go unsolved up. Seeing a lot of stress and strain on families and during most of the time tested during the last 30 years, has all been under control that Democrats, I know what they have to offer would never get to the bottom of these issues. I know what they have to offer will always keep people dependent. On government keep people not feeling responsible, accountable for their whole lives so first and foremost to run from mental. So the House master because of that, that's why I decided to get into politics at all. I'm a businessman and a technology basically, but It was something that needed to be done. And no one else was doing it with things that people needed to hear. And no one else was saying it. So you know, I thought about it told God to take me and I ran for Minnesota House. Man make some noise there. We didn't win Berry Blue District, So this time around, I was ready to go backto my business career and building businesses and ah, Republican friend of mine reminded me off the horrible things that Miss Omar was doing this for us. Has separatism. Anti Israel comments at time American stances. Open borders and just looking at how she was not serving this district. There was pretty easy to convince me to take her on because I think she's bad news and she needs to go. And so that's basically why I'm in the race. Then when I enter anything, any competition, I entered it win. And I thought it was time to break in her embarrassment She's been causing our district state in our country. Lacey Johnson is running for Congress against Ilhan. Omar takes a good candidate to beat an incumbent, but you have to raise a lot of money. He's doing that. And I hope our listeners will support him. In fact, let me go and start with that. Lacy. What is your website? If folks want to go online and send you some money? Lacy. Why Johnson, Joey Gina win dot com So my name dot com links to johnson dot com.

"That we've used before has worked before. Let's let's stick with it. Yeah. It's absolutely a game changer with with the loss of the Minnesota house. The the Senate was already on very shaky ground with their one vote majority. Now, it's a to vote majority for the time being but last session, they had the one what majority, but we also had Kurt doubt leading the the Minnesota house. And there was there was no way that gun control bills. We're going to get hurt or advance. Now, we know that gun control bills will advance through the Minnesota house, and they're going to be over to the Senate where there's a tight majority and a handful of senators who have already signed on gun control bills in the past how much arguing is done between any how much of it is focusing on individuals who can who can cave and trying to gain their support. And how much time is spent laying out the facts and laying out your argument. Why the why the why these policies are not the way to go. It's it's a fair amount of both. Yo you we can get into the the bolts nuts and bolts of the bill's proposals up coming up here. But we have to make sure that we are in. Encouraging those who support the second amendment, which is on both sides of the aisle mind, you in the Senate there are there are senators who have been firm supporters of the second amendment who are DFL hours in the Minnesota Senate. But also holding those Republicans firm a holding people like Warren Limor, who's chair the Senate Judiciary committee, making sure they hold firm. But then I it's we count on our our our members and our supporters and everybody listening who values their second amendment rights. Also be communicating with their legislators saying no this. These bills are bad. They're an assault on due process. It's a gun registry. We can't allow this in Minnesota talk about the the red flag law specifically because that's something that's getting a little bit attraction laws that allow police to take guns from people deemed dangerous. Right. What does that mean? So this is a really really interesting, though, I I'm kind of shocked that that the DFL who who have champion, you know, at least they feign being the champions of the little guy to protect those who who need protecting our. Supporting this kind of a Bill what red flag laws do is. They allow anybody who is a family member. Anyone who is a that? You're the parent of a child with anyone in law enforcement, whether they're acting in their official capacity or not anybody who is resides with you in the same home or who has ever resided with you in the same home, or anyone who you have had the law says a significant romantic relationship with my can in perpetuity can in perpetuity go and get one of these red flag orders, and what this means is they go to a judge. And they say, you know, what I'm scared. You know, rob is is a crazy gun guy. And he's running around the capital trying to trying to let people keep their guns. I want to get the, you know, my my college girlfriend decides I want to get this expert in order for protection right now in current law. She can get that odor protection. Sheriff's come knock on my doors. Hey, rob, your your college girlfriend who you haven't talked to in ten years said, I'm sorry Kristie. Fifteen years. I said said they you know, they say, hey, they got this expertise. Order of no kind of great now. The the law says I can't have contact with her which is which is fine. I don't have a constitutional right to have contact with somebody. But now what they want to do is expand that to say, by the way hand over your firearms. And that's where we get into the the lights and sirens due process red flag or does because without you having your day in court without you, even knowing an accusation. It's been levied against you. Without you having the opportunity to provide a defense. They are going to seize your firearms, confiscate your firearms. And you've got you've got nothing you can do or say about it. It's got to be a difficult situation too. I imagine in you, can I mean feel free to correct me if I'm wrong, but I imagine that when you're when you're looking at pushing back on a on a on a Bill like this. Well, I'll just ask you is it like a matter of scale like let's start off with this isn't good across the board. And if we feel like we're. We're not going to be able to stop it from happening. Then. Okay. Then let's make these changes because it's gone too far in these levels. And I imagine if you do look at it that way, that's got to be difficult. Because when do you start to argue the nuances of it without kind of paves the way of for wishes does that make sense? Yeah. You're absolutely right. You know, you're you're talking about the notion of compromise on it. And let me tell you. There's no there's no version of red flag bills that that us at the gun owners caucus find acceptable because there are the mechanisms and current law that allow them to handle all of these things and just think about it. They're talking about people who either pose an immediate threat to themselves or to somebody else. Imagine that if you believe somebody is a danger to themselves, they're going to attack a public venue or they're going to kill themselves or hurt. Somebody else you go you knock on the door. You take the guns. And then you say by how the nice day, you leave all the knives in the kitchen, you leave gasoline in the garage leave rope in the in the shed leave all the pills in the in the medicine cabinet the knives. In the kitchen. You haven't done anything to address the problem. You went you took the guns, and you feel like you're accomplished. But right now in Minnesota, we have what's called a twenty four hour holds where if somebody is a immediate danger to themselves or to somebody else, the law enforcement will give them an ambulance ride to a hospital where they can be held for evaluation, and then a doctor can determine whether or not they're, you know, they're in a sound mental state in that instance, you're actually addressing the problem. But it also comes to domestic violence. Minnesota is one of the most strict states in the nation when it comes to protecting victims of domestic violence in Minnesota law enforcement cannot make our cannot issue a citation they have to make an arrest. If they believe domestic violence has occurred within the last seventy two hours or is likely to occur in the future. They have to make an arrest and again with both of those instances, you're actually addressing the threat the person the individual not just running out with their firearms leaving them in a in a very. Elevated state and in thinking that everything's gonna be fine. The the phone lines are open six five one nine eight nine five eight five five you can use pound two fifty on your smartphone. This is a great opportunity. If you've got questions about this issue with rob joining us in the studio, this is the chance to to call in Astra questions or make your comment. You can also use the hashtag TC and t- on Twitter and communicate with us that way and go to gun owners dot M. And that's the Minnesota gun owners caucus website. To learn more about becoming a member of these guys do fantastic work, protecting your secondment rights. They are in the forefront. They are on top of these issues. I remember I get the emails. I see what you guys are doing. You. Guys are always several steps ahead of everybody else when it comes to being on top of these issues. This is one of those specifically this red flag laws, but really the gun control issue. I in general is one of those issues where the use of language and the use of emotion is so insidious. Yeah. And and and you know, if you went up to anybody, and you just said, hey. You know, should police be allowed to take guns for people that are deemed dangerous. Yeah. Sure. Probably. Yeah. But then when you actually get into what that means and how they determine what deemed dangerous means. You know, you're talking about stripping people of their constitutional rights with no due process whatsoever. And people are losing their lives of a red flag was in Maryland. They just passed a recently passed a red flag lost. Somebody got a red flag restraining order against somebody. And they had to order their guns confiscated sheriff's calm. The guy. They say, hey, you know, hand over your guns guy says no and slams the door, they break down the door and ended up killing the guy, you know, in the in the guy, you know, this guy is just blindsided, you know, and I don't know the particulars of the case of very never committed a crime, and his he may have never committed or crime, or it may have been entirely warranted that the those firearms be saved seized. But let's talk about just the logic of sending our law enforcement officers to somebody who has no idea that the an accusation has been levied against them, and then demanding their firearms that is a dangerous situation. And even if they are dangerous, even if they deserve their firearms taken away, if they're prohibited persons or whatever sending our law enforcement officers into that situation just cold like that it is dangerous for them to there's just no logic. Or no thought behind these bills, especially when you look at the myriad of other tools available at achieving achieving the same thing, keeping people safe helping loved ones who are in crisis without needing to resort to these extreme measures. When you are when you're dealing with these sort of these moms demand action kind of groups that were at the capitol yesterday. I it's got to be a little bit frustrating because you could put statistic and statistic, in fact, in fact in front of them, but it's also emotion based I've got a good story about that. So Monday or Tuesday when they were at the capitol having their rally, I was down in the lunchroom is about one o'clock and they had finished up their rally. There was another anti-gun group that was holding a protest, but I guess the moms demand action people wanted to go get lunch. But I I was I was just. Sitting there. Demand lunch. Yes. Moms demand liked. So I I was sitting there by myself. I'm your gun rights isn't the most popular thing to be lobbying for I don't end up with a whole lot of friends there. But but they they came in. They. You know, when you hold elected representatives accountable, they tend to not like that very much, and then all the other lobbyists. They're like, oh, we don't want people to think we're working on gun stuff. So. Stay away from it. It's fine. I'm not down there for them for the law abiding gun owners of Minnesota anyway. So the moms me action activists that came in there. Like, hey, can we sit here? I'm like, yes, you can. And they're they start talking about why you know, they're just casually talking about why they're there and stuff like that. And they asked what I did lobby for gun rights, and there is all got really wide. And I'm having this conversation with them. And I and I'm very respectful. You know, I I don't go this thing. Right. Insult people. I try to berate them. I try to win over and logic on fact on on on reason. And and so well, let me ask you as a few questions. Just curious you guys know that in Minnesota. We have seventy two are holds where anybody who's going through a mental crisis can be evaluated by Dr. No, we didn't know that. I said do you guys know that in Minnesota law enforcement has to make an arrest? If they believe that domestic violence is occurred or is likely to occur. No. We didn't know that. Do you know that this allows your your brother in law who sleeping on the couch and your basement to get one of these orders without you knowing without you having your day in court. No, we didn't know that the the amount of misinformation that's out there. And you're highlighting that with your with your preface. There is shocking people just don't understand the scope and the and the wide array that these bills cover, and that's what frustrates me because in Minnesota. We don't really have a major gun problem. No, we're the we're the third lowest state in the nation in homicide rate. Are violent knows that listen to the DFL members of the house. There's a huge perception gap, and that's a lot of the mainstream media. They will rush to cover any time that there's a an actor shooting situation. Whether it's an actual active shooting situation or not if he just hear that there's one oh my gosh. Twitter blows up everything. But there are there are numerous sometimes even over a dozen instances everyday in some local media outlet about a somebody defending their life. Offending their family with a firearm..

They go through the story. And then they talk about in in in Rhode Island. A microphone was shut off in Ohio last month. GOP speaker cut the microphone of a democratic Representative and in California last year. There was a democrat majority leader who shut off the microphone a microphone of a Republican. Here's my question. Did they ever use? This was put it as a joke wasn't ever used. Because there's no indicate was it used Thailand. Somebody. Yeah. I think so you're recall being used because I remember at least one circumstance, right? Absolutely did use it. Because the story does not lay that out. Look, nobody talks about why it was installed. And why it was you you what you why it was used? It's because the Democrats have been more and more electing more activists types into their into their ranks the Aaron make Quaid's of the world, right? Who who had a sit in the house for twenty four hour. You started electing those kind of people, and those type of people believe that those who shout the loudest should win the argument, you know, those who disrupt the most should win the day. And if something's going to pass that they don't want to pass they are not above using these types of disruptive tactics to try to keep things from passing. They believe that that is the right thing to do the microphone was still having on off button. Right. I mean, you could still like all these other circumstances. They gave they didn't have them you button. They just turned it off. I just I so they've used it before I guess, I kind of see. But there was no example, give it in the story of them ever of them ever using it nor do I think it's going to change much of much of anything now. No, it's just a it's just a the the the the dump the mute button was something that was used to mock hurt out. You know, they they they made fun of for it. They they acted all outraged by it. But I guarantee if Republicans ever started using the same tactics that that Democrats us rights and shouting down your opposition and trying to win an argument just by having the largest mob show up. They'll bring it back. Speaking of muting radio stations are muting Christmas. The classic seasonal saw baby. It's cold outside has now been banned by Cleveland radio station after listeners complained that allegedly promotes date rape. Just in Cleveland now. Just in Cleveland Cleveland problems. That's right. If you're if you're listening if you're living in Cleveland you've got much greater things to complain about than the Christmas song. Way down on the list. You know, where you live? If you go the other way with this. I it's not like it's much better. And my point being is like a baby is fine outside. What if it's like ten below? Hey, you're not dressed warm. Another baby is a baby it's fight outside. That's what somebody needs to do is the parody version where he's trying to get her to leave. Right. It's super cold outside. It's like, no, it's fine. Here's another coat baby is five outside. Star one oh to Cleveland listeners raised concerns about the lyrics, baby. It's cold outside with some saying the word send the wrong message in the Arab too. This. I'm so tired of this. You know? This isn't gonna end we're going to get this every year until like, you know, collectively, we're like find every copy of that song and burn it. Because I just I don't even care. I don't care that much about this song to have to endure this stupid debate every single year in the context of win. This song was written with societal norms. Being what they were right? There is nothing nefarious about this song at all. It's like flirtatious chatter between two people who clearly want to spend the night together. But she, you know, because of societal norms at the time, you know, it's frowned upon for for an unmarried woman to spend the night with a man. So she's putting up some resistance, and he has to try to convince her to stay, but she clearly wants to, but she doesn't feel comfortable coming right out and saying it, it's clearly flirtatious it's clearly harmless, and then again in the context of win this song was penned it makes total sense Trina Braxton Braxton family values, and I don't know what that is. I'm assuming she must be related to Toni Braxton that's my assumption. And I'm assuming that's a that's a reality show. Right. Yeah. Yeah. Braxton family values is a is a reality show. She was asked if the song was date raped. She said forty four years old. It's not because she stayed. I don't think it's altogether. True. The song is about date rape. Because at first she was like, the neighbors might think she said, however, she admitted there was one part of the songs. Seems a little sketchy. They only part when she was like, hey, what's in this drink? Maybe he slipped her a little Rufino. He did. But otherwise, she stayed because she wanted to stay in that line word in there that one single line weren't in there. I don't think we would be having this debate at argument. If that one single line of like, hey, what's in this drink with word was not was removed from that song? The anybody would would think that, but it counters up a bunch of Bill Cosby images. I really can stay baby this wolves outside. I gotta go baby. I locked the door. There's handcuffs in withdraw. Far more offensive Christmas songs than than baby. It's wonderful Christmastime. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. That's that's on the list on Christmas song. This is the Christmas by Wham o those new done. Now, you shut your mouth.

"It is eight thirty seven in the twin cities twenty degrees. As may Murphy with you until nine o'clock along with fester, Steven Shearer Carlton college. Let me ask you professor share your somebody who looks at the history of elections and presidencies. This has been a presidency presidency. Unlike any other, I think it's fair to say in so many ways in terms of sort of a president who really has has swings in terms of his positions or what he says about different things on so many issues where do you see in terms of the trends that you highlighted in your article pioneer press a couple of days ago? As we go forward because the handicapping for twenty twenty already starting. Well, you're right about swings. And what the president says in zigging and zagging this very week. I just have to mention that. He has endorsed Nancy Pelosi to be elected as speaker of the house, which no one really expected and said he would deliver a Republican votes for her very unlikely as me, I don't know where these things come from. In in in that that that news one of the conferences that I saw he he went on and on about what a great job she was doing and and people were going. Whoa. And then there right after that hours later, and then he was also asked that very news conference. And what about the attorney general diesel have confidence with him? And he's I'm not going to get into that right now. Hours later, Jeff Sessions is fired. Exactly, exactly. And you know, it's quite possible. It'll turn on Nancy Pelosi very quickly too. So his rhetoric is unpredictable, and I think that makes his future relations with the democratic house. Unpredictable. I the only thing I think is likely to be to occur over the next two years is a steady stream of Republican judicial confirmations to the federal judiciary through a Republican Senate because now filibustering is no longer possible that I know. No is going to happen. Can we get a budget passed? Can he make any sort of agreement with Democrats? Can he bring Republicans along all of that remains very very uncertain? So I'm afraid Seth foggy future. Right. And one of the reasons I thought that maybe he was urging, you know. I guess the likely next speaker of Nancy Pelosi to once again become speakers because he wanted another foil. Somebody somebody you can kind of, you know, barade- of demonize because he's certainly did that with secretary Clinton at very successfully in winning the election. But I think one of his most popular targets other targets has been Nancy Pelosi, right? But in terms of bringing people along I mean, clearly, this is somebody who really enjoys campaigning. I mean, he was out there. You know, holding these rallies we saw them here in Minnesota. I mean, he he thrives on this. And and not everybody not every elected official does. But he really seems to enjoy that. I mean, this is a guy who's a really good campaigner. Yeah. I can't resist bringing up a story from the Ross Perot campaign back in the nineteen nineties when Ross Perot was running for president. He had hired a Republican operatives Ed Rollins, and and. He started to Perot started to get some flack along the way. And he said that Rollins went to get to be fun again and rollin says well when you are on the day dedicating your presidential library. When it gets to be fun again. And that's I think the situation that Trump finds himself in and now who does like conflict, and he's going to have more of it because that's his temperament and the Wall Street Journal, which is often friendly to him said that he has. I'm just quoting has what might be called a like ability. Yeah. With the public, and he's very good S may at working his base and getting them excited. What he hasn't done in this presidency is convinced other people to change their minds and support it, and he'll need to do that between now and election day twenty twenty right? Although he and for the base, though, he may not have won over people. But those I was speaking to doing interview with the current Minnesota house speaker, Kurt doubt won't won't be house speaker for very long because as you for now Democrats did take the Minnesota house, but he said that their research. It shows the Minnesota Republicans research shows that in the areas where Mr. Trump was very popular or did very well in two thousand sixteen he's ten points. More popular. I don't know if he by that. I do I do. Yeah. Because in areas where you could see that in his twenty eighteen strategy for rallies, he was going to the areas where he was popular in order to juice, turn out like southeastern Missouri, Montana places. Like that you notice he stayed out of Minnesota in the last month. Probably because he could he could use up more votes in redder states than in Minnesota. Now, I there's something else I need to bring up this month this week, which is that a political action committee associated with the Trump campaign, or at least publicly linked with the Trump campaign has said they're gonna target. Get Minnesota for Trump in twenty twenty. And I don't know if they've looked at the twenty eight t election results in Minnesota. But I don't understand why they would make Minnesota one of their top states based on what happened this month in elections in this state. Really, well, you know, I think I think one of the things that I've seen it in the president's appearances. And I actually was just going back in both those rallies in Duluth and in Rochester. He had one in Duluth in that was in June. Because I was there the one in Rochester this just late October or early October. He said again, and again one more visit and I could have won this state one more. Visit and one thing that I was doing I was going back. And and looking at a story, I said you destroy this week on sheriff rich Stanek who lost the been county sheriff's race. That's one of the biggest surprises tonight. Right. But congratulated his opponent sheriff, Dave Dave hedge Hutchinson. And then did an interview with me saying that he wasn't conceding. So I was trying to try to figure that out. But I I mean, we can talk about that that too because that that I was certainly a reflection on those democratic votes. But one of the things I thought was so interesting going back and doing some research, I was trying to get the video from when sheriff Stanek was with the other sheriffs at the White House meeting with the president and in that roundtable which occurred very shortly after he was sworn in. So I think it was February of twenty seventeen early February twenty seventeen the president again. And I'd forgotten. This says. The rich standard. Oh, yes. Minnesota. I one more time one more one more. Visit I could have one there. And I think this is somebody who enjoyed the president enjoys winning. I really think he believes that. And I think he sees that this is a state he could win because of how well he did. But there are a couple of things that happened in two thousand sixteen that will not happen in twenty twenty. I Trump snuck up on people throughout the fall everybody thought he was losing everybody thought heated to. Yeah, he did too. Well, when you're president of the United States, you don't sneak up on anybody, you know. And I think you already see that in the way Democrats organized and re so much money in twenty eighteen they outraged the Republicans so Trump will be known, and we'll be planned for by Democrats and that he could win. Yeah. Yeah. They know he could win. And they will I think take everything. Does more seriously than they didn't twenty sixteen. So that's a significant challenge for cops. And then when you talk about Minnesota, I think you have to look at current electoral friends where the votes are in which parties giving them and as a twenty eighteen that's got to be the Democratic Party. I think I think that's such an interesting point, you know, that he is a known quantity. And I think when we look at and I think you mentioned this before I think that there were one hundred and eighty thousand fewer Democrats that came out in Minnesota in two thousand sixteen then did in twenty twelve when Barack Obama was running for reelection. And I think part of that was a lack of enthusiasm for secretary Clinton. But I think part of it is kind of what you just refer to she's got this. So don't worry. Yeah. It's a big deal. He's not gonna win. There's no way he's going to win. I'm not going to vote. And I think that's what happened. Yeah. But that won't be twenty twenty because he has one and Democrats will be motivated in the way, they were not in twenty sixteen regardless of who their nominee is right. All right. Listen chatting with professor Stephen share. We brought up the sheriff's race in Hennepin county. A big surprise. Let's talk about that briefly when we come back, but first let's take a break and pay some bills. You're listening to News Radio eight three oh WC L the.

"Distress ball. Now. A few hours after a caucus meeting. State Representative Melissa Hartman announced that she will be the new speaker of the Minnesota house. Hartman who represents district thirty six b was the house minority leader Hartman says well, it's unlikely both sides will agree on issues such as gun reform and healthcare reforms she is optimism that they will be able to work together to lie. Well, they don't they don't need to. Agree with one remote. That's it. State Representative Hartman said that we have some very significant unfinished business from the last session. And so he started right away looking at tax conformity. Representative elect Ryan Winkler was elected house majority leader, he previously served in the house from two thousand seven to two thousand fifteen you guys don't understand what that means. You guys. You guys are gonna have a new least favorite a Ryan Winkler. Oh my gosh. He's he's just terrible. Oh my gosh. I mean, we sent him to Belgium. They sent him back. At least, you know. Ryan Winkler is you know, he's he's not smart. I'd be a little more. I'd be. I'd be a little more worried about him. If he were if he were smart, what's a Harvard education these so much. So it's really gross is what you're saying. Well, here here's what I'm going to give him what he does is annoying. And he is super good at it. Yeah. He is very talented at making us crazy Representative Liz Olsen who represents Duluth is elected. To majority whip. The DFL majority will consist of seventy five members pending a possible recount in district five. Well, the Democrats won by four and there were seven write in votes in five. Wow. Gosh. How does how does somebody? I mean. I know Winkler is is well connected. Right. He he was out of the legislature for awhile, and he's just got reelected. Yeah. How does he how does he do? They choose him leader. He has a well earned reputation as being a very good on the floor as far as you know. Because the he was one of the people that if the Democrats didn't take the house, you know, he was rumored to maybe, you know, their minority leader, or at least certainly to have a a major role because what he's good at. He's good at picking apart Republican arguments. What he's good at is throwing bombs what he's good at is getting under the skin of Republicans and getting them to say or do things that they shouldn't say or do. But it is it's it's grading. And you know, we'll I'm sure we'll talk about this later things are really bad right now. Because by losing the house. All right. Well, we'll spend more time on it.

"We are here at the DoubleTree in. What is this Dina? Close enough. That's in that weird. Little vortex of Bloomington. We're right on the border hotels. All look the same. Not the most consequential distinction. You're going to hear. What city were at? Drew Justice myself, Walter Hudson Samson severe in the house analyzing your election results. And this one's pretty peculiar. This one was just called at the New York Times. The state of Arkansas has decided who the next governor is going to be it's the Republican with zero percent reporting. So apparently, the New York Times just like, yeah. Yeah. Yeah. That's that's an exit polling move. They called they called it. I remember as a very talkative. Exit polling. They actually they just updated glitch. I remember I remember though as a kid how much that screwed me. I think. Math up for me for life 'cause we'd watch these elections and my dad was very politically inclined. Right. And I remember we'd watch these elections go down, and they would call all these races ready to the bolts close would like to present. Doing all of this. As a kid. I still don't understand it. And I've tried to educate myself. Well, you know, you know, how certain districts are going to vote, but how can you really know for sure though because you just do history. Yeah. Trouble once graphics, you call it, then you count them all up, and it turns out that's happened Kathy. Yeah. They call it. They stopped counting. Right. Yeah. Yeah. No every vote gets counted. It's media media calls at eight p is typically the one that calls it, you know, and they do it. They do it a combination of exit polls. They look at turnout in the shore districts and the districts where they are certain the if the turnout meet or exceed a certain point, then they can extrapolate from that. What percentage the whatever candidate might end up getting Michael Barone was that was he's like he was like the guru when it came to the midterm elections, and they don't and again, we moved away from that. After all of the. After all of the convicts. Florida is too close to talk. Yeah. All right. Yeah. Yeah. Usually the latest from real clear on that has desanctis at fifty Guillemette forty eight. However from at least according to Twitter. One of the areas that has not been counted yet is Miami Dade and Broward County. There you go and that is going to likely strong for Gillam. So that's going to be super super close race throughout the night. One of the reasons. Yeah. Santa's fifty Gillam forty eight one of those situations where every vote counts. I mean, people think that their vote does account and your vote absolutely counts. Yeah. Injured getting back to what you were saying earlier, and then and then sort of what what's it good night Minnesota, but to your to your original thought leading into that question Star Tribune had an article two days ago battle for Minnesota house likely to decide twin cities likely decided it twin cities suburbs all one hundred and thirty four Minnesota house district up for grabs in the upcoming election. But the communities surrounding the twin cities will be vital in determining which party controls the house. I will fight governor seats Senate t control the house and also the ballot. Then again, interesting dynamic when you consider. How heavy the turnout's gonna end up being the metro. Of course, that's interesting when it comes to keep Ellison and CD like I said earlier to me. A Doug wardlow win. A adjacent Lewis hold is is a good night. And then from there just goes up any any victories on top of that for me. It's just you know, and the guy I think the governor's race is going to be close. But if if Johnson wins it, I you know, I'll be I'll be ecstatic. If Joe Johnson wins than you can say with some degree of certainty that you say with absolute certainty that were also wins. Right. There's no scenario in my mind to kind of flip that table, where Johnson wins wardlow doesn't Kronos scenario probably know scenario where Johnson wins and wardlow and Myra went. So now, we're looking at three statewide races there that also would bode well for car and Housley right strong. Right. We're looking at a great night Johnson is able to win. But for me sort of that minimum criteria of what I would call a good night for Minnesota Republicans would be wardlow, obviously one other statewide office. Probably Myra, I think would be the most likely the state auditor's race. You see star win. You see you see Jason Lewis hold on to his seat. And. And then like either a pulse in Haggadah Orne or Hughes like at least one of those wins. I do think Dave gonna really upset Collin Peterson. You get data. The bare minimum that also it would indicate that the Minnesota GOP would would continue to control. The state house would probably continue to control the the. Would would still have a strong showing in the legislature as well? So there that to me there's your bare minimum criteria for what you call a good night to state wide races. One of them certainly being a g. Holding. Holding Lewis stalbur winning and then one other congressional race. Paulsen born or or Hughes, and and then retaining control the Minnesota house. Yeah, that's basically in line with what I laid out as as the plausible great night in terms of those victories. Karin Housley Jeff Johnson Doug wardlow, Jason Lewis, those that would be a fantastic lineup. If we were to get those victories, and it's not outside the realm of possibility to see those lineup to of not at all not at all. I think in fact, I feel pretty confident right now. And and I don't know if you're a democrat, if you're on the I don't know how those were the results, I don't know how you take that and painted as any kind of victory for your party. I mean, you've lost a significant amount of your momentum. Just the office alone. They lose that they've held it for what forty six years forty eight years longer than I've been alive longer than I've been. What is it? What's the what what what would be the disconnect? You see a scenario where Minnesota has a great night. But that overall across the country. Dem's end up taking the house and all this. Can I interject look at TV screen right now. Dato fifty two percent crews forty eight and they took it away. But I want to say it was like thirty nine or so. Yeah. It was thirty nine that is that's concerning concerning the it is the problem with that though. And I will say this before everybody starts running for the hills. Texas is a really really big state.

"A lot at stake in the Twenty-eight turn midterm election, including control of the Minnesota house WC, oh Susie Jones goes behind the ballot. With a look at what some are calling the forgotten race. Brought to you by Minnesota credit unions, any discussion hearing notice gushing all those in favor of the motion and precursor. Those opposed. No, the one hundred thirty four members of the Minnesota house. Sometimes don't behave all that. Well, especially at the end of the session, but as it made legislative process charges now right now Republicans have a twenty one seat majority. So that means that Democrats need to pick up eleven net seats that's university of Minnesota political science professor Larry Jacobs. He says GOP party leaders are focused on the state house more than the governor's race. Because if you've got a democrat as governor. The Republicans are keen that they control the state house. So that they can check the democratic governor who would want to move the state and more progressive or liberal direction. Jacobs says it may be tough for Democrats to gain ground. And I think it's a big lift for the Democrats to pick up those eleven that seats. I think they could well pick up number seats, particularly if the Democrats do well in the state, but I think they're gonna fall short and leaving the Republicans still in the majority Jacobs says control of the house has huge implications for all Minnesotans when it comes to healthcare education and tax conformity soon as the legislative session starts there's gonna be a lot of conversations about reforming Minnesota tax code to conform with the federal tax code.

Twincities NewsTalk AM eleven thirty and one zero three five FM. Back third-sector Minnesota. House clear recorded the downtown free house at the fall flavors dinner. We just wrapped up the third course. The pingers couple. Mash course. That Ukrainian sausage with the Peruvian purple. Paired with. October fest. Mike goodness. That was that was fantastic. Yeah. That was really good. So when we did the preview in the first segment, I was singing the praises of CRA Marchuk's between segments. We we did learn that that is where the saucers came from was so good decision. Yeah. Some some Ukrainian sausages. That's that's going to be your best bet that was really good. We just got the fourth course put down in front of us. The pumpkin cheesecake pair with a barley wine. I'm going to dive into that in just a moment. But we wanted to take a few minutes to talk with Jason the general manager here free us how you doing man I'm doing well. Thank you for having me. Thanks for stopping by hanging out with us for a few minutes starts, of course. So you guys you guys don't do a ton of beer dinners here. Right. We we don't this. Our this is our second since we started every every dinner is a beer dinner. If you come and do it, right. True. Very very true. We try to get some beer out there with every every meal as much as we can. But yeah, this is definitely a focus weird. Enter that. We are customizing parents with each meal. Each course done intentionally so to create a unique experience for how long does the planning process typically take for something like this like when did you guys, you know, between the decision to do this at what point did you? You really start to sit down with the chefs and the brewers and start thinking about flavors, and and that collaboration that goes into a menu like this. We we typically start we we look ahead. So we tried to plan ahead and and look at each quarter of our year and plan accordingly. And I have something unique for each each each of those times. So for this dinner, we started probably in around, June or July. We started talking about what we wanted to do looking at production. What we were going to have out during that time. And we wanted this one was we wanted to focus on fall flavors. We wanted to capitalize on October time. So the October fest was kind of our. The easy one off that we really wanted to to to show off. And then what we could do around that as well too. And so we started on our initial planning stages, and the the the mock that we did initially. We were we're doing kind of more summer flavors, and we it was like, well, no, let's focus on fall. So we we had a tasting that we started first round just scratch with ideas on on what we wanted to work with. And then after that, we presented it to our culinary team who made some refinements to it. And then once we had our menu, Dan, we we worked with the for caring for out of what we were going to have to go and they got to chase everything. And we came up with the parents at y'all have today. So I think you really not go to the park, man. I mean, the spin really fantastic menu. I thought the pairings were creative were smart the Ruben with the Rueben soup with the. Brown ale was just five stars. Yeah, I'm gonna wait till after the segment to dig into the skin. The pumpkin cheesecake, but does far the Brownell can the the Ruben soup has been my favorite. Yeah. I think so I mean, it's hard to to not say that the Ukrainian sausages my favorite. But I really think that that soup. Just just nailed it. Absolutely. Nailed it. I've never had anything quite like that before. I mean. To really put those get all those flavors of a Ruben a nice hearty soup. Like that. The texture was great. The croutons were perfect. But then. I've had your Brown ale. I said this Brownell number of times. It's a great great beer in and of itself, but that herring brought out flavors. I didn't know were there. That's the exciting thing about when we compare things like this shop James did a great job with the menu. Coming up with some flavors that really work. Well, and then. That's the exciting thing we can create a pairing with a beer in a food item that work really really well. And you know, that's our beer. It's we wanted to pair. Well, with food we want you to be able to have a couple of them have a great meal and go home Happy Valley. So we often talk with brewers and we often talk with. Chefs and those individuals when it comes to beer and food and the culinary experience. But we rarely if ever get a chance to talk with somebody like yourself who does the the front of house overseas? The the dining experience what what is your approach? What is the challenge involved in making sure that the consumer comes in and it has a worthwhile experience when they come to the free house. I think every time we we wanna make sure that we are. We're creating that experience. I think that's what that's what it's about. So we we want to make sure that our heart beer selection that there's something for everyone. I mean, you look you look at our list. We have our our core. For beer said there's something for everyone there. And then we have a unique seasonal less that is creative inspiring and just something a little bit different. For our guests. We wanna make sure that they can have a meal have a couple beers. And enjoy that meal, and and go home and not be super full and being able to feel like in. Come on. It's also making sure though that the you know, the the beer tastes rate. It looks right. That were making sure that the glasses are are clean and ready to go. It's it's all those the attention to detail. We wanna make sure that the guests experience when they come in. They're not worrying about anything. I we're taking care of all those issues. So this unique challenges though, but that are presented with, you know, having a brew pub type experience. Yeah, you're not a taproom your restaurant also happens to make you know wide varieties of tastic beers. But with that comes. A lot of diversity in your customer base. Right. You've got beer geeks. Come in. They know what they want. They know what they're looking for. They know what you don't need to really educate revenue to speak. But it seems that you've just got everyday diners that maybe aren't necessarily that into the craft beer scene or community. You don't know a lot about it. But they start looking at your menu. And they probably have a lot of questions. Yes. Talk a little bit about the process of educating you're serving staff to be able to answer those questions intelligent, especially with a selection like you guys have which is a pretty broad selection. Absolutely. You know, I think we the one thing that we we. I sure do that. We we we pride ourselves in is that every employee that comes through whether it's a host whether it's a buzzer. Whether it's a bartender food honor, they all go through a B classroom within their first month here. It's a roughly about a three hour class that Harper's put on an. And it goes through production, and then tasting and talking through all the beers. And how it's made. And why it's made the way that it is. And how it pairs and also how it relates. So people don't always know free house, beer beer, is we number are not a lot of places do that. They know it by name where ours is known by a number. And so we we take the time to go over with our staff on what they can relate that to that's popular in the market that they can say, hey, if you like this kind of beer, this'll be something for you to try. This is great generally one of the first questions that a server would ask a customer win. The don't know wouldn't necessarily beard order. You know, they start asking questions. They don't know what direction to go is it. What do you like what do you like, what do you what what types of beer you like, and then we can hopefully guide them into a spectrum? Because a lotta times it's seasonal so we can hopefully have something that they can drink or that'd be close to that. Otherwise, it might just be something that is within that realm that might be. Maybe not. Relatively close. Otherwise, we always have a good selection that might not be Andre anymore in our cans election that if we didn't have it for them. We could send it home with them. Like, hey, you can try this. Take it home with you. Very cool. Thanks for stopping by giving us a few minutes. I appreciate it. Thanks for having us out for dinner. I've already while you're while you're talking I think I housed about half of that desert. Goodness. So delicious, I'm going to get into mine. So we would next segment we will hopefully be able to spend a few minutes with the chef and talk about his his approach to these dishes. You're listening to the Minnesota beer casts.
