But what I wanted to share with you is this and this is really what Precipitated this entire B s board and the concept of whom do you trust? You guys familiar with the name Dr Joseph Fair. This guy is a contributor to NBC News. And this guy. And I remember watching his video. He's lying in bed. He's gotta a nasal cannula in and he's like, I just, You know, I've never felt this terrible in all my life. I'm 42 I've got cove it you know, I'm pretty healthy. And if you if you think this can affect you look at me. Because it can. You will have to take it. Seriously. This's riel. Okay? The guy a tested negative five times for covert 19. Ladies and gentlemen, he was lying. As he laid in bed. He was lying. And NBC has yet to make any kind of a retraction. Any kind of an apology. Any kind of? Yeah, I know that you used to trust us. But we kind of crap that bad a long time ago, so don't even pay attention to what we're talking about anymore five times. How do we know this? Because in one iota like one single like a shred of truth, it came out that he even took Anna body testing in the antibody test came back. Negative. This guy doesn't have has never had Cove it but that was the story he spread. That was his yarn. Do you know how absolutely irresponsible that is. This is what he said. He calls himself a self styled virus hunter barf. That's just gross. You're trying to make a buck and make a name for yourself as people are legitimately dying. Whether or not it's specifically from Cove it they have it and you're trying to make a name for yourself and get on TV. And gasp through your nasal cannula and say You're so sick. He might have been ill. Ladies and gentlemen, But don't you think it's completely disingenuous toe lie to people and to tell them that you're Koven positive when you know for a fact because you've taken 50 my goodness. Wow. That is so beyond outlandish to me. So who todo dressed? Well, not NBC. Right. Let's get out to Judy. Hey, Judy. Welcome to Katie Kay. I'm Andy. I just might tell you. Thank you for all your hard work, and I just have two quick comments. One are dead hair I see on Fox News. They had a song bite of hurt. Talking to somebody. And she said that it was in a group should say that keeps everything shut down to pressure on Trump acting. And Yeah, wait, so she she did say that she said it then that she tweeted that cause she deleted it then. She was Fox movie had a sound bite about three nights ago, where she was where she was given the news conference or something. And yet Thank you for your edification. Judy. You're a news hound. I like it. What else did you want to add? And I just want to tell you they don't have to look any further for Coke. That's because there is run. All you have to do is press a shoulder to shoulder that's half down, spit skill and catch the vaccine. The pager caters to your hate, you will get it. I cannot disagree with your sentiment there, Judy. I just I could give you a squeeze right now. That's just super cute. All right, Judy. Thankyou. Andrews and em's worth alot, Andrew. Hey, I want hi. Hey, Thanks for what you did. You're a lone voice in the world of presenting a thank you. You know, it's for whom I trust in the media about local national. Everything's goingto ads are spent on. It is very sad. I agree with you. I think everything is biased. I mean, I'm biased. I understand that I'm a conservative woman. And so I feel a certain way. But before I come here with with information for you guys, I think it's true for or I've got to have facts, don't you think? Oh, absolutely. But you're not getting it from the mainstream media and local government county. They're not. It's all skewed. So whatever they want to skew it, too. I wonder often, Andrew, I wonder how people go to bed at night, knowing that they're purposely doing things whether you're purposely misleading or you're withholding information in order to gain a political advantage to me. How do you go to bed at night and wake up and look at your face in the mirror? I think that that said they're withholding or just telling you certain parts. Or whatever the agenda that they're trying to present. I don't disagree with you. Sadly, I think this has probably been going on for hundreds of years. However, it is front and center as we shine a spotlight on covert 19 because it is so important to have information that you can Trust. There are people who are literally scared to come out of their homes. Because of media malpractice. Because we have elected officials. Who would rather perpetuate fear, then say, Look. Look, we're going to tell you something. There's a lot we don't know about this virus, but here's what we do know. We do know that Children do really well with it. So the young people sort of most people by and large under the age of 70 and those who are over the age of 70 if they're sick or feeble or infirm, got to keep an eye on him. We can do this. We got this America We've got this Pittsburgh, but what you have is Nope. Can't do this. We can't do that. Nope. Nope. Nope. Nope. Nope. It's the wrong message. It's just the wrong message to get out to marry Anne Robinson. Hi, Mary. How are you, dear? Welcome. Hi. Hi. Hi. Closet. Comment. I just have this conversation with my friend yesterday is like saying you can't have it both ways. You can't tell the kids they can't go back to school. The math works. So kids fine. I'm gonna lose my voice. I'm sorry. Um, if the teachers were the master, why is it so afraid of mass worker and then? Why can't they go? Well, there's that and then you heard about, Of course, in California. They're letting out 8000 prison inmates because of Cove Inn. And again, Mary from Robinson's point is valid if masks work, and we've been told repeatedly it is your number one best line of defence. Save for washing your hands. And why doesn't everybody just have a mask in jail? Why do you have to set people free? Why do you release criminals into the citizenry when what you're doing, then is releasing those who have broken the law and punishing those who follow it. Walk me through That logic makes no sense.

California's San Quentin Prison Was Free of the Virus. One Decision Fueled an Outbreak.
"California's one of the large states that has having a large surge in corona virus, cases and hospitalizations right now Arizona of courses in terrible shape right now. Texas is in terrible shape Florida, starting to get really terrible really fast. All three of those states are now having hospitals overrun while their case numbers hospitalization numbers just keep climbing every day scary. but California's having a real problem too, and here's something really specific. That's going on in. California, that was not just like a bad situation that arose from the Meyer of this epidemic in California part of their big problem, right now was a single screw up a bad mistake that has now set off. What is really a disaster? Here's what happened. By mid April one of the largest state prisons in California had run of outbreak. It started as just a handful of cases at the California State Prison in Chino. But it soon became dozens of cases, prisoners and staff alike. At the time there were more than forty two hundred men imprisoned at Chino that's nearly twenty percent more than the capacity. That prison was built to handle and of course. You know by their very nature. Correctional facilities and specifically overcrowded correctional facilities like Chino was just a hot bread for any hotbed for any sort of. Contagious, illness and sort of outbreak. So when they knew that in mid. April it was no wonder that by the following month by May. Corona virus had just run through every dorm, used to house prisoners at Chino. By the end of May there were six hundred and thirty five confirmed cases at Chino. There were nine men dead. Given the crisis, they had on their hands. The State Department of Corrections along with the State Attorney Journal decided that they would transfer all bunch of prisoners out of that prison out of Chino, and they would send them to other prisons in the state. One of those prisons was the infamous prison just north of San Francisco called Quenton now. At the time San Quentin had actually been doing very well and beating back the epidemic so well in fact at the time. San Quentin had no infections saint. Quentin had no corona virus infections in March. In April and it may. But then came this influx of prisoners from China, which had a terrible problem there more than one hundred twenty prisoners were transferred from Chino to that facility at San Quentin and they'd all been tested at some point before transfer. But. It wasn't like they were particularly sticklers timing it right off the bat. They knew problems. Many of the prisoners hadn't been tested for coronavirus for up to a month. Before they got sent from China to this new prison at San Quentin. And so at Saint Quentin within days. They get the sides of their first infections. In the month, or so since those transfers San Quentin has now become the largest corona virus outbreak in California. There have now been more than fifteen. Hundred confirmed cases at San, Quentin alone and at least six deaths. Three of those deaths just came this weekend. And amidst this huge spike in more than fifteen hundred cases at San Quentin. Well now, the top medical officer for California prisons has been fired. And now with the virus, having spread unabated throughout San Clinton. It is I mean there's no wonder that a lot of people are worried a lot of different levels starting of course with prisoners. And with their families recently, we had the chance to speak with the mother of one prisoner at San Clinton and her name is Rita Zavala. And she told us this about her son's cellmate, recently testing positive and how her son is living now. Are Man their lives matter to. Just like everybody else. And they should be treated like. Animals? That so like they are treating them like. Just let him sit there. You know if you make it. Oh, good, if not allow you know. That's not how treated human. Stage they got there, but they're paying for their mistake. You know being in prison. But my son was. But I feel like he is now because I don't know. If he if he is going to get the virus, and not is GonNa make it through the by rich because of their medical is not the greatest. You know. Last point raised by Ms Avella is critical one. It's the it's not just the number of men that are dying at San. Quentin, that is the cost for alarm. It's also the huge number of prisoners who are positive there now who are requiring medical care and they're requiring advanced medical care, which means they're getting not just the prison itself, but within the whole local healthcare system, some hospitals within reaching distance of San Clinton, have become so taxed already by San Quentin prisoners filling up their issues that they're no longer accepting any transfers of California state prisoners to their facilities situations gotten bad enough that one local doctor told our NBC news affiliate and San Francisco. That San Quentin is the Chernobyl of covid.

Norah ODonnell, anchor of the CBS Evening News
"Today O'Donnell joins us on skin from the couch. She is the anchor and managing editor of the CBS Evening News, making her the third woman ever to so anger, a network evening broadcasts before taking the helm of the evening news. She was the CO host of CBS this morning for seven years norad. Thank you for joining us welcome skin from the couch. Thank you for having me, so we're GONNA. Start off with Skim your resume for us. Will I went to Georgetown University I was Law Sophy Major? I was interested in a lot of different things in college so I had internships at always worked and worked at a law firm I. worked at the World Bank, and and then I injured ABC News and I think you know journalism really was what was the right fit for me? Just a deep curiosity about the news, deep curiosity about world events and people have to graduating from college I got a job at National Journal on a publication, a called the hotline, which was the original kind of aggregate her of news before the Huffington. Post and others got into the business of aggregating news. Even like you guys in some way, remember it well, and that also was like a crash course in politics, too, because we would. Sum Up every Senate and House race across the country, all the polling who all the key consultants were, so that really was a great crash course in politics, and then I got hired at NBC and MSNBC when I was twenty five years old to be you know it was one of the youngest correspondents at NBC history, and had a great career at NBC and had three kids, and then we all work on intelligent news underwear like personal services contracts. All of us have anywhere from two to five year contracts. In, so you know in each of those contracts, come up! You have an opportunity to reevaluate your next step and CBS came to me with an incredible offer to be. The chief White House correspondent for Obama's last term, and to be the substitute anchor for face, the nation, and I had always been ambitious about wanting to anchor a Sunday broadcast I love politics, and so to be able to substitute for the legendary Bob Schieffer at thought. This is really an an excellent opportunity, so. and. CBS. News and then Kinda. The rest is history should I keep going? No, that was perfect so something you definitely don't know I. and turned at MVP when I was nineteen in the specials unit, and I was like my first week on the internships. Let's say day two or three in you opt into the office. And you're the first professional famous news anchor I ever seen in person and I literally I stopped breathing I was so excited all I wanted to do is to be a news anchor at the time, and I was so nervous, and when you walked out of the room I asked one of the producers. What is she liked you work with her I will never. Never forget their like she's the best of the best, and I was like what makes her so good. And they said that she always does her homework and I think about that a lot and I'm curious. What is something that you your fans and people like us your big fans? What does the thing that we don't know about you that we can't Google? What I wasn't as good about doing my homework in college. And I did just fine at Georgetown. But I do I think certainly a professional that is dry. Always did know my homework because I do believe that preparation builds confidence and confidence build success, and so for me, you know certainly early on my career as a young correspondent with so many famous people at NBC legendary careers. My confidence wasn't a tie, and so I thought how can I be the smartest person in the room and no more than anybody else and. You know I just really did my homework. I really worked really hard to make sure I knew everything. The thing that people may not know about me. You Know I. Guess would be that I'm from a military family. You know I mean that certainly is my resume, but it's the one thing I mentioned because you know I remember in covering certainly the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq after nine eleven, a lot of people would say on television and Mike Barnicle on morning. Joe would say this a lot that Oh, no less than one percent of people have someone in the military who didn't understand these wars, but I grew up in the military. My father was drafted during the Vietnam War. State for thirty years I lived overseas and so I really do have a deep appreciation for those who serve my sister-in-law surgeon in the army and so I do have a really keen sense of the sacrifice that many people go through, and I do in some ways I almost wish that it was mandatory almost like in Israel that we had to sir because. I think you know certainly the discipline that they have is unlike anything I've seen those who sir. Let's actually start with that because I think it's fascinating talking about how you grew up and living overseas. How did this love of news and growing up with that military background kind of come together for you? You know I think one of the. First crystallized for me in some ways when Elena, Nachman Ost, who is still the vice president of talent at NBC? News said to me when I met her. When I was twenty five years old, and she said you know we like hiring correspondents who have from a military background, because they're very flexible and adaptable. They don't complain about being sent to different cities or states or around. Around the world they can talk to anybody because they've sort of been put in that situation where they have to be totally adaptable. Moment's notice

Like right at the front door of the clinic. They had stopped my partner like. I'm sorry you can't come in. I was very much thrown off. I was like I'm sorry. What Indo was turned away told he had to wait. Outside social distancing for safety sake they probably saw the look on their face like yeah really really. Sorry but no visitors at the same appointment. Another blow Victoria learned that her hospital was tightening up the rules. For the delivery room. She would be allowed only one person with her for the birth her mom or her partner but not both anything. I'm so grieving the fact that I am not going to have my mother there which is really was really devastating to me as of last week and even that small little thing that I had planned to. My head is not going to happen. You know so pretty upsetting but and she's worried that this could escalate a nurse mention her. That by the time Victoria delivers the hospital might bar anyone besides staff from the room. That means Victoria would be all alone when you are in pain. When you're going through this experience you need someone to help your advocate. Your voice you need someone not only there to encourage you but sometimes you do need someone to speak for you and to not have that person. There is really is really hard to swallow.

My baby is going to be alone. Hospitals everywhere are having to make these hard calls balancing the need for support during birth with the need to limit the risk of corona virus in New York.

We reached out to the hospital where Victoria plans to give birth. Kaiser Permanent Days Medical Center. They told us that as of now. They're single visitor. Policy stands but victorious concerns. Don't stop at the hospital like so many new moms. She's mccown help from family and friends when she gets home But for now it looks like it would just be Victoria. Indo and their new baby. I didn't expect me and my partner to do this alone. We have big families. They were all planning to come visit. My mom was a postpartum nurse herself. Like if I needed help with breastfeeding and she was gonna be the person who is going to help me do that. And she can't what advice has has your mother given you about Childbirth and especially giving birth now. But she's she's been in this field for a long time as well like what is she telling you.

He had an appearance scheduled at the Christian Cultural Center of Black Mega Church in East New York. There was something. The former mayor wanted to get off his chest overtime. I've come to understand something that I long struggled to admit to myself. I got something important wrong. I got something important really wrong. A little more than six years after leaving office bloomberg apologize for policing tactic. He championed known. Stop and Frisk. I didn't understand that back. The full impact that stops were having on the black and Latino communities I was totally focused on saving lives but as we know good intentions aren't good enough but I can't change history however today. I want you to know that I realized back then I was wrong. And I'm sorry. And then one week later. I'm glad to announce that I am running for president. Defeat Donald Trump and to unite and rebuild America. He announced his run for the presidency. As a former mayor of America's largest city who wants govern New York as a Republican but is entering the Democratic primary in a new era. The party has moved left on criminal. Justice issues and candidates are now having to account for policing policies that devastated some American community's part of the reason they have to address this type of criticism is because they know the importance of the black vote.

He says he won another another battle with them. Well you just played what I call the test. I caucus people said the president something wrong but don't believe in a single consequence for him. They're not even introducing bills of censure. Okay so they're just wringing the hands. This is terrible. Let's move on now the Democrats tonight. They're playing for a crowd that already has made up. Its mind and has reached each verdict on Donald Trump. And so I don't think they need to pound the pavement on this. They need to advance their own their own story. They're on sale. Sell a selling points. That's what they're gonNA focus on. But I do think there's a bit of a disconnect between this what's happening in Washington with trump on on this rampage of revenge and senators giving up on their constitutional oath.

I know this is a podcast. They can't see a bunch of lightning both pain so you're NBC News Right now. Yeah previously at whether Channel Rat Linda How's it going? How how's the I guess? NEWISH GIG you've been there for. Yeah just over a year and it's going great. I moved from Atlanta to New York. I do live in the city so you know learning how to live in the city the life I was certainly an adjustment. My family is from the New York City area. So it wasn't that bad Did give up my car by the way I miss it every single day. But you do not need it living in New York Eric Working for NBC. News is so much fun. It's it's another level you know so. Every day. I get in my typical schedules. I work Monday through through Friday six. Am to three PM and that schedule allows me to help out with the today show. When I I get in and help with planning all the way through nightly news and then and also continue planning for the today show for the next day so I right now my main meteorologist that I work with our our roker and Dylan Dreyer Gio? So what does a typical day. There might might not be a typical day. But what does one look at that exists. Yes so the typical day and again every day is different. That's also why I love working in media. You kind of have have an idea of what you're working in two or walking into but you also don't know what's the top news story going to be. You know when you work in breaking news. Sometimes you literally do not know what's going to happen that day but a typical day my alarm goes off at four. AM which is early. But I also did. When I was at the weather channel I did many many years of two? Am Star so sleeping in a forum now for me. So that's I hop on the subway way early in the morning those city streets and I'm in the door usually at six. AM sharp are there is really no kind of time to get adjusted by six. AM The today show. Goes on the earth seven so everyone is in full planning mode full producing mode. And we're kind of in the last minute touches. especially if there's breaking news it's really hustling so I am doing any last minute Senate weather maps for al a lot of times especially if there's breaking weather you've got rainfall totals to talk about. Maybe some records are being set that we want to be in the show. So I'm adjusting scripts I'm checking headlines for meteorological accuracy which is important also for interest. We WanNa grab those viewers right away Then from seven to nine. I'm in the booth working the maps producing with Al with my other co workers who are beside me other meteorologists at NBC. And then after nine. It's almost like everything comes to a halt because the show's over and then we go immediately into meetings to plan the weather content for the whole rest of the day so it is nonstop. They say we have an hour lunch. Break we do not have an hour lunch. Break work launch so coming from the weather channel. I imagine you're working with mainly Meteorologist people with the weather background but now that's sort of big difference at the at NBC. I'm I'm sure it's a lot less Meteorologist working with what what do you think is the difference there. Like how do you have to do things differently. Talk differently or use different words. That is a a great question. The answer is yes but not necessarily in a bad way at actually gives me more of an editorial voice that I never had before when I was working at the weather channel. You said we're all meteorologists. We were all generally on the same page most of the time here. You know you've got the the weather unit also simultaneously the Climate Unit at NBC. We are whether voices for the entire giant network of NBC. So we will field questions and again help with reading scripts reading headlines Writing Scripts sometimes for NBC News All of the digital platforms so NBC News. Now obviously NBC News Dot Com as well as MSNBC. The list goes on and on so It is my job also to temper any hype you know it is the news. Watch us but but we do have that responsibility especially me as a scientist now recently a see you do have that scientific responsibility to you know. Don't let facts get in the way of a good story. That's kind of typical. Slogan of News I tried to let not let that happen. I try to make sure all the facts are correct. Everything is accurate and then you can get into the storytelling aspect. Gotcha so you mentioned that you went to Virginia tech yet or Hokey. I am a Hokey. That's great and you said You actually started UH meteorology program there. Yes so I certainly helped it When I first got to tech There was no school in Virginia that had a meteorology degree program. Graham And I knew I WANNA be meteorologist. So I'm thinking okay. How can I make it happen? Even though I don't have a degree program to literally do it so I remember member as a freshman walking into the office. He was the dean of the College of geography. And I said I want a meteorology program and you know for those of you who can't can't see me I am five foot one rounding up my nickname visit by feet of fury. So here I am a freshman blasting into the Dean's office saying we need a beater allergy elegy program and we need it now and there were a couple of meteorology courses within the geography department. So That's how I knew where to go. So I immediately paired up with the one meteorology instructor Dave Carroll who quickly became my mentor helped him build coursework Helped him build kind of storm chase field course that all students go on and I still see them out in the plains. Every year helped sit in on the interviews for new professors which is a little scary And then I continued there to get my graduate degree which also helped me build that program. Yes I actually. I was like every class I became available. I took it the first semester available and so there was a lot of feedback involved. I started the Meteorology Club. There you know we start. I remember the first meeting there. Were like eight of US weather geeks in there and now the club has just exploded in its gigantic doc and it makes me very happy. That's awesome yeah. I should've I should've done. I'm from Maryland and they didn't have a program at the time I didn't think starting my own that's really in business so it was really busy. I would say but I felt it was important and the important thing was I found other people who were also so interested in it also wanted a program so I built my little army and then they came with me to mediates. They helped me start the club so I had people full with me to help. Get that message Allen that's great So at Ms. When I tried to schedule for the interview you said you are busy with the CCM? I I guess you do the actual approval of see at at the conference. Yes so I just got my CCS which stands thank you. It was a rigorous process The idea to get it actually came from my business partner Crystal Egger she ours. We we started a company together and she found the CCN program we've both been members of the ams forever and she goes you know what this looks interesting. Maybe this would help our company. You know maybe you should get it and I look at the process and I'm like Oh oh my goodness. I don't know if I can do this. It's very rigorous. It's very hard but I thought okay. Let's give it a try so I remember. I decided I'm going to do this in the summer. Summer of two thousand eighteen and then a month later I got a new job in New York but I had already started the process. You know we have like three months to get through it and so I'm moving. I'm sorry new job I'm trying to do the CCM which was the hardest thing ever. It reminded me of getting my master's degree but even more difficult than that if you can believe in and then I came to ams last year It was in Phoenix. And I did the two hour long oral exam where I've got grilled by like fifteen people. Yes which they were. Current board members new board members. And I really didn't know it passed or not it was that difficult because CCM's we are trained to have a poker face so so what else in the exam. I didn't know if I was doing great. If I was bombing I had no clue and then I found out I passed which was wonderful now. They asked me to be aboard member. So Oh wow. I took the exam just last year and now I'm helping great it and it's been a big so now you're on the other side of that. I am underside. And he knows since I just did it a year ago. I can really empathize with all the people who are up there and clearly nervous and you know clearly terrified because I was them one year ago so trying to help them and through the process as best I can you mentioned that in part you you got your cesium because Your Business. ooh What's so what's Your Business Name. In what what. What do you do with the goal so my business? This is called monarch weather consulting and we are in small women owned business. There's four of us right now and for all the weather keeps out there monarch. It is for the butterfly fly because that is a hat tip to the butterfly favorite. That's my favorite butterfly monarch. I love monarch so much. I'm sort of insect. Yeah we must have been chat channel in your interest as well so I mean we have just built our company. Even since a year ago we were just coming up with the monarch name which which by the way we now just call ourselves monarchs which is super throwing? We do have a Hashtag boss Babes because we are small women owned The other people in the it was just crystal and me for a long time. I give crystal all the credit in the world. She's the one who started it and said Hey. I think we can do this so I call her the fearless leader of the company. And as we I started growing we brought on twin sister Lauren and she so I'm the scientists twin she is the art and I like to call her colored like the smarter twin. And if you will at least with street smarts Because she does marketing and advertising so I brought her on as the director of marketing. Now we are a startup so I pay her in pizza and wine right now. But it's great to have her on the team and she's another Virginia cokie and then the fourth person on our team is Ashley Ballard and she is is a genius. Also one of my former students also a hokey storm Chaser so crystal in other words is just surrounded by hokies which is super important. I think I'm just GonNa give her an honorary diploma point But I mean starting company is hard for everyone out there. especially if you have other gigs and you know other full-time jobs. But it's so much fun it gets me out of bed in the morning. It's entrepreneurship is exciting. To talk about every day being different you know. The highs and lows are real-life. Everybody needs to.

McConnell like any congressional leader his priority is keeping his caucus as big as it possibly can be keeping a majority in his case He'll do the calculation closer to the election as to whether Donald trump is better for that. 'cause or Mike Pence's better for that. 'cause I suspect that they think that an impeachment and removal is such a jarring odd consequence that it's difficult to recover from but We'll we'll wait and see. And David the the lesson here on trying to nationalize impeach the impeachment 'cause trying to nationalize the defense of Donald Trump if he wanted to run that test as a Republican and and kind of fix it. So that you'd get a positive result you would take that test to replace like say Kentucky. which is what they did? It's not like it's some swing state or they took it to Kentucky and they they couldn't get Kentucky voters to stand up and say yes. We are opposed to impeachment. Look the story of the trump presidency has just this that in in twenty twenty The Republicans discovered that their classic cocktail was not palatable anymore to American voters and so in two thousand sixteen they said well what if we I put a little donald trump spicy seasoned salt around the Rim of the cocktail it doesn't become more palatable and they discovered a lot of actually more economically hard pressed S. culturally conservative white voters especially men will drink the cocktail with trump sees me what medicaid plus trump vote shows in Kentucky is trump seasoning. No longer longer works. And the Republican message of less Medicaid for you people at tasting at their not enjoying it. Yeah and Jonathan. What's so important about that is this is exactly what Donald Trump trump has tried to do? Donald Trump has spent his presidency trying to take healthcare away from people trying to repay repeal completely obamacare and so the the campaign run against Matt. Bevin and Kentucky is the campaign you would run against Donald Trump national. It's so hard to tell sometimes Florence because the president talks about How he's going to preserve various things? That government is trying to take away. At the very same time goes out on the stump and talks about preserving preserving Medicare. But then you look in his budget and it's undercutting Medicare. He says he's going to preserve a pre existing condition protections and their government is doing to undermine and You would think that that's Something that the Democratic presidential candidates are going to spend a Lotta time on in this primary and eventually nominee will spend a lot of time in on in the general. The Election Democratic candidates did in the midterms to great success and trump will have to defend what his record is and David. I think the Democrats have enough video video of Donald Trump saying he was going to repeal obamacare completely That they'll be able to. I think pretty clearly make the case. Donald Trump was trying to do and has in many ways. Done the same thing that Matt Bevin was doing and that video will do one more thing and you'll see that tomorrow. which is these things get inside Donald? Trump's head I mean the the real natural politicians and the OBAMAS the Clintons the George W Bush is they. I mean they're like boxers they take a punch shake it off their back in the ring. Donald Trump these these things get inside his head. They work on him and his own game begins to deteriorate as he takes on board things more professional politicians. which shake off? And forget the next day. Jonathan Allen Ellen. How long do we have to wait for the trump tweets blaming all of this unmet t minus three seconds warrants? Hell how long do we. We have to go before the Eleventh Hour and David. That's another part of this is that Donald Trump is now sitting in the White House. Tonight watching this stewing thinking who does he blame. Who who's who was the nut in his operation who let him go to Kentucky All of that how he dealt with and trump world tomorrow. I just glance glance at twitter a second ago. I think that's already happening. I think there's already a statement from the trump campaign saying that donald trump almost successfully dragged matt. Bevin over the finish line. That is the they're they're keeping the blame on him and now every Republican officeholder has to think wait a moment. Wait a minute. Is that going to happen to me. Are you going to kick me if I get into trouble. David from Jon Allan Thank you both for joining us with this live coverage on election night. Really Appreciate Hey. It's Chris as you know. Sometimes it's good to just take a step back from the day-to-day onslaught plot news.
"nbc news" Discussed on The Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell
"Ask in our public schools because we believe in the next generation of Kentucky and our schools are the foundation of our communities. Every kid has the right to get a world class education that opens up every door that they can walk through and we can only provide those opportunities by more election news tonight including in the state of Virginia. GENU- let's go straight to Steve Kornacki for the latest on Kentucky Steve. NBC is calling a shared the apparent winner of what. What are we waiting for for confirmation there? Yeah so basically. You can see the margin here. It is inside of one percent here. This is a four tenths of one percent. Sent the margin here. Five thousand eight hundred and one votes every precinct we have every precinct in the state accounted for. What is happening now? Now is Matt Bevin. The governor has there it is we just had A. I wanted to figure out what just happened there. I think I may know this. This is where we had discrepancy. And I wasn't sure in this this Woodford county right outside of Lexington. Our numbers were lagging behind the associated. Press's we were trying to figure out this is. This is the one discrepancy discrepancy. That was on the board. What it basically did I apologize? Lawrence's literally happen as we right here but basically it updated a few thousand votes the totals for Bevan and for Bashir. But you can see it's still lands at about five thousand. Do the quick math five thousand one hundred and Twenty six votes fifty one twenty six. That's what it lands at right here. Matt Bevin. The governor has said he's not conceding this election what he does right now is he has the right if he wants. He didn't say necessarily he's doing this. He has the right to file bio for a recount. There's no automatic recount provisions in Kentucky. But what he would have to do if he wants to take that route is he'd have to go to court. He'd have to go to a judge apparently in his his speech tonight. He alluded to discrepancies. Not Clear exactly what he might be referring to irregularities excuse me but he would have to put that in writing. He'd have to go to a judge he'd have to to get a judge to say okay. There's going to be a recount but there's a possibility he's going to seek that there's a possibility the judge is gonNA give him that and Steve Terms of vote count tonight. What what more are we going to see in in Kentucky? That's it. I think what you just saw there in Woodford county was the last one it was. It was a thing where the Associated Press is doing a running counter. This and we've been doing a running count. We were trying to reconcile it. That's the little change there you just saw but otherwise I said every precinct in this state is accounted for so if Bevan is ultimately going to become the winner of this race he would have to get a recount. A recount have to turn up something that we are not seeing in these results anymore precincts that come in Kentucky tonight that we put Bevan ahead. Steve put this Democratic Gang just in the vote count in Kentucky in perspective. Donald Trump won the state by thirty points. I I hear you see a Democratic candidate. Statewide running for governor the day after Donald Trump went down there and said this election is about impeachment actually really put in tried to put impeachment on the ballot in Kentucky and for the Democrat to even make the race. This close we would be talking about it. Even if the Democrat was coming in the second I think there are a couple of things that happened. I think when you're a Democrat and you win a governor's race in Kentucky. A lot of things have to go right for you. There are two things I draw your attention to one. I've been talking about tonight right. It's in the suburbs. It's Cincinnati is. This is the northern part of Kentucky. Here on the other side of the Ohio River there is Cincinnati's suburbs of Cincinnati. These three counties that Kinda the judge out here population wise these are pretty big counties. They make up about ten percent of the state population. They are traditionally Republican bastions. Traditionally Republican candidates get pretty pretty big pluralities out of here. Help them win statewide. That is not what happens. Not you see. Two of these. Three counties in the Cincinnati suburbs actually flipped and went democratic. Went for Bashir. You're in the third. That's Boone County. Read one right here. Bevan ran ten points off what he did. The last time around easier counties trump did well in two thousand sixteen but tonight they went far towards if the Democrats away from Republicans I think that is part Lawrence of the National Story. We've been talking about suburbs across the country. That's where you've seen the most dramatic movement in the last couple of years. There's during the trump presidency away from the Republican Party of Donald Trump and toward the Democratic Party. That was part of the story in Kentucky Tonight. The other part of the story in Kentucky Tonight Coal. Oh Country Rural Kentucky Eastern Kentucky in particular here Kentucky. He's an interesting state because we say trump state red-state wasn't always a red state way feedback. Kentucky was a deeply blue state democratic state it was blue collar culturally conservative but it was democratic. And what happens here is in eastern Kentucky you start to. CD's blue counties here check this out. This is a good example. Bath County Small County here but share wins at fifty two forty six. How big of a departure from twenty sixteen is that look at this? Donald Trump got sixty seven percent. Here in two thousand sixteen. He won by thirty seven. Bevan lost this county six. You see this throughout here. Trump won by twenty two. Who By nineteen you can go up? See Nicholas County. Here's another when trump won by forty one points in two thousand sixteen Bevin couldn't even carry it tonight so it's an an interesting phenomenon here where you have to call it. Incest truly democratic. These are folks who live in rural they were born Democrats. They've kept their democratic credit registration. A lot of cases but they've started voting for Republicans at the national level. They certainly voted for Donald Trump. Boy Did they go. Back to share in the Democrats VAUGHN Hilliard our reporter reporter down. There was saying one of the theories. That's out there is one of the reasons you heard your mentioned this in his speech. His Father Steve Bashir the former governor. He did very very well in these areas and it might have been impart the Bashir feeling name might have reassured some of these voters and brought them back into the democratic fold but you had looked trump last night giving being that speech trump coming to Kentucky. This these are exactly the kind of places he thought he was going to fire up and he was going to get behind Bevan. Carry over the top Bevin need to do better in coal country trick Steve. Thank you very much. You've the queued up von Hilliard. For US perfectly. We're going to go live now to NBC. News von Hilliard at Bashir Headquarters in Louisville Von What's the reaction there. Steve said it throughout the night all of a sudden. It's these numbers were coming in. And they were slowly coming in in there. I was talking.
"nbc news" Discussed on The Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell
"The last word with Lawrence O'Donnell leaving Rachel but we have the big results especially the big results in Kentucky where according to the Republican Party their view of the case in Kentucky okay the Socialists won tonight. Listen to this this is this is one of the ads and excerpt of one of the ADS. They were running right down to the end Socialists. In Washington Washington wants to impeach trump and take us backward. Andy Bashir is part of the radical resistance. And yet somehow somehow Andy Bashir this year one in a state that trump won by thirty points wacky right and Donald Trump went down there and put it on the line and told them last night. You know this will be bad for me. If I lose he he once again did that. Trump thing of personalizing that race to be about him and if he wants to make it about him. It's a very bad for him. That's right and if you've got if you're going to play it your trough that way you're going to have to pay for it later on exactly. Yeah and now what. What we're we're now seeing what's going to be fascinating to see what's the Republican spin? After this we know what the Republicans was GonNa be which is Donald Trump went down there and save the day. Okay so so what is it now. What what do they say tomorrow? What is what does Mitch McConnell Thinking Tonight Mitch? McConnell's numbers in Kentucky. His popularity is not good to to put it mildly Mitch McConnell is up for reelection next year. What does this mean for him? I was talking to von Hilliard. Who is down at Andy? Bashir headquarters earlier this hour. Actually as we were just getting in the NBC News Call about share being the apparent winner. And what Vaughn was saying at the time that that call came in was that Mitch McConnell's numbers look basically Siklie exactly like Matt Bevins' numbers in Kentucky and this is the last statewide race. That's going to happen there before. Mitch McConnell is up statewide to try to hold onto his his Senate seat and so every race is different. That'll be a presidential election year and there'll be a lot going on but it can't look good. I imagine that the Republicans will try to make this a personal loss for Matt. Bevin that that doesn't say anything about anybody. Rachel the winner has taken the stage in Kentucky. We're going to share headquarters right now. In Louisville. Let me first I start by thanking my running mate Jacqueline Coleman..

"Now it's time for the last word with Lawrence Donald Evening Learning Rachel and that explains the Nancy Pelosi and Mitch McConnell both talking about the possibility of this movie into the Senate around Thanksgiving yes because the calendar doesn't make sense unless there's a crunch factor in there that we haven't been able to see from the initial scheduling the depositions that mostly means the staff working weekends on the depositions we'll we'll see how many members actually show up weakened position Sarah Point thank you thank you we'll be operating principle of Donald Trump's presidency is to govern by lie and so he lied today when explaining why he surrendered due to the resistance once again this weekend donald trump's surrendered to the resistance that rose up after he announced his illegal and unconstitutional plan to the next seven meeting to a trump hotel so that the American government and foreign governments would be paying donald trump directly at the same time we'll get to that later in this hour trump lies and stupidity go hand-in-hand Donald Trump depends on a sort of collective stupidity for people to believe his lies they morning he issued a deeply disturbing tweet about the situation in Syria and the Kurds and in the tweet he lied about bringing our soldiers home he also got the secretary evinces name wrong and that's what makes it a classic trump presidential tweet the combination of deceit and stupidity with carelessness calling Defense Secretary Mark Casper Mark Esperanto got trump a lot of really hugh on twitter yesterday and a lot of laughs but I couldn't laugh this time sometimes I do sometimes laugh at trump nonsense and sometimes I just can't and I'm sure you well have those moments can't quite tell when they're gonNA come it's kind of a mood thing times when you laugh about trump and time you just can't for whatever reason this one was one of those moments for me where I couldn't laugh and the Mark Esperanto tweet did not strike me as funny it actually felt deadly serious normally typos on twitter ain't nothing but a Typo is when you type something by mistake that you know is wrong and you usually go correct it pretty quickly there's no reason for anyone in the world old to be confident that the president of the United States actually knew the real name of his defense secretary when he typed him as s onto but if we just limit ourselves to the typos just the typos in trump tweets and an official White House statements written by the least competent White House staff in history the number of written mistakes by Donald Trump and the people working for him in the White House is now something close to the number of stars in the sky and in a typical presidency you can spend a year looking for a Typo in an official White House Document and not find one these mistakes mean a lot from Donald Trump and the people working for you him they just don't care about details they don't know how to care about details and that explain anes has constant refusal to care about details he doesn't know how explains everything about Donald Trump's presidency from his deadly decision about the Kurds in Syria to his alleged criminal conduct described in the report and revealed in his own words in his phone call with the president of Ukraine he does not know how to care about details and so we'll take some time at the end of the hour tonight to consider in all seriousness the clear and present danger of having a president of the United States who might or might not have thought for a few hours yesterday four the White House corrected his tweet that his defense secretary is Mark Esperanto Donald Trump's lifelock long inability to care about details including details like the law is what has him on the verge of impeachment by the House representatives where the House Democrats are now working on an outline of what will become the impeachment case against the president in an exclusive report tonight. NBC News Says House Democrats are zeroing in our frame work for their impeachment case against President Donald Trump that will center on a simple abuse of power narrative involving the president's actions regarding Ukraine according to multiple people familiar with the deliberations Democratic House Committee chairs and leaders are still debating the need for possible additional articles of impeachment or charges that extend beyond the presence dealing with Ukraine but according to NBC News Speaker Nancy Pelosi has been adamant that the case against trump must be targeted and easy to communicate in order to build public support according to those familiar with discussions tomorrow morning ambassador Bill Taylor the Act some Basha to Ukraine who sent a text message calling a quid pro quo over military assistance to Ukraine crazy that was his word which is very easy to understand it is he is scheduled to be deposed tomorrow morning now now that it appears absolutely certain that there are more than enough democratic votes for impeachment in the house resentatives there is also a crack in the Republican Wall in the House representatives on Friday Republican Congressman Francis Rooney said that he is open to the possibility of voting for impeachment telling reporters I've been real mindful of the fact that during Watergate all the people I knew said Oh they're just abusing Nixon and it's a witch hunt out it wasn't a witch hunt it was really bad when asked if the president's dealings with Ukraine amount of impeachable offense Carbon Rooney said this I don't know I want to study it some more I want to hear the next set of testimony next week from a couple more passengers but it certainly very very serious and troubling and the very next day on Saturday congressman Rooney's boldness came into clearer perspective when he announced that he is not going to run for re election to his house and the Senate Mitt Romney is becoming increasingly comfortable with the role of Republican senator who might vote to convict Donald Trump in his impeachment trial in the Senate in an interview with the Atlantic's McKay coppins Senator Rondi said he will make up his mind signed about the impeachment case when he hears all of the evidence at the impeachment trial Senator Romney told McKay coppins at this stage I am strenuously avoiding trying in to make any judgment and Mitt Romney did another interview this weekend with axios on HBO ruling on TV and saying will you investigate my political opponent is wrong it's a mistake It was shocking for the in my opinion for the president to do so and a mistake for him to do so I can't imagine coming to different point of view we certainly can't have president's asking foreign countries to provide something of political value that is after all against the law leading off our discussion tonight or NBC News Correspondent Heidi Prisma Heidi broke the report about Democrats be focusing on the abuse of power in their articles of impeachment MSNBC political analyst is with higher let me start with you and your breaking news reporting about what the Democrats are considering a window now whether Nancy Pelosi or their whether nets Posey wants once start within policy a single article of impeachment that is simply about the phone call with the president of Ukraine or the possibility of including say elements of the Mullahs report obstruction of justice in separate articles of HBO we do know Lawrence that right now she wants a simple article with an umbrella being abuse of power and underneath that everything that has offend with regards to Ukraine which included includes that phone call it includes the reports of a quid pro quo about the military aid it includes Shing aside the former ambassador to Ukraine in order to install the president handpicked confidants who referred to themselves as the three Amigos who then helped to push the Ukrainians to try and cook up charges against the binds it includes all of those things but it is narrowly focused in the sense that it does just focus on Ukraine Lawrence still under debate is the second wave of charges which would be related to obstruction of justice contempt of Congress believe it or not that's actually a much more difficult and contentious one to decide on whether that is going to be just Ukraine where they think they have a really strong case the October Eighth White House letter from Pat Sip Baloney the White House counsel basically telling Congress to to you know go go you know where and and the they're just not going to comply with anything and whether they're going to include anything on Muller and obstruction Lawrence I'm told there it's a little more difficult because Congress where did get the chief witness in the obstruction charges Don mcgann to testify before Congress and they don't want to give any excuses for anybody to not support what they believe is a clear cut case of an impeachable offense when it comes as well to obstruction Heidi indication in your reporting of what the process will be how will the Democrats arrive at a consensus of what the shape of the articles should the big that's still really early Lawrence and I must stress that in my reporting that while there is this big umbrella focus on the narrative of abuse of power. The speaker's office did caution me that the actual legal drafting of articles has not begun because they haven't collected all of the evidence yet and all of the information but historically what would happen is that all of the committees would send in their best information Jerry Nadler the judy committee chairman has already called on all committees to send their best information to judiciary which would then be tasked with drying up specific articles but make no mistake the speaker is going to be the one who drives this all and who makes all of these decisions as to specifically how many articles that are going to be and right now again we're a snapshot in time but according to my reporting the thing that has been decided is the abuse of power narrative that they will hammer out something obstruction slash contempt of Congress but the additional articles at this time are unlikely now that could change with pushback from various stakeholders and committee chair people who've been doing months of investigative work on issues like emoluments who believe that the president is clearly violating that constitution by being continuing to you know own his companies and benefit from the presidency with the trump hotel in Washington and foreign governments there taking up in order to curry favor with him but right now we're just looking at abusive power in Ukraine and then something separate on obstruction and Ukraine and maybe something from the Miller Report Mika with your experience working in the House on the Democratic staff side how does that sound to you and do you think the House General Democrats would agree to that approach I think it's always a challenge to manage a caucus diverses one that's in the majority you've got people with a lot of different competing political interests here and a lot of different kinds of concerns but one thing that we've learned is that Nancy Pelosi is a master politician and her ability to under Dan exactly where the caucus is what they can support and what the political implications are that is unmatched and then she's going to be able to marry that with what is the legal ace for impeachment of the President I think that her instinct make it as simple as possible to understand with umbrella of abuse of power is really helpful all too often democrats can really get bogged down in process arguments.

"I wanna take you back into a time. Warp nineteen Ninety-four Republicans sweep the house and the Senate two years later. Bill Clinton is reelected his opponent on the ballot was a guy named Bob Dole. But his opponent on the airwaves was a speaker of the house named Newt Gingrich has Donald Trump already found the candidate. He's running against in twenty twenty regardless of the Democrats, nominate Kerry, Dan. Whoever the the the boogeyman that he wants to run against for sure. And he's already identified so many potential opponents in order you start at branding them. Right. But I think he's gonna run against speaker Pelosi. That's my point here is that Newt Gingrich wooden running for president. But Bill Clinton ran against new Gingrich for reelection not Bob Dole. Right. And, but I, but I also think that he is already in the process of identifying any other potential twenty twenty candidates and branding them. And I think well, you know, we've heard about Elizabeth Warren. We're going to if there's, you know, the the second that there's chatter about Amy klobuchar or Sherrod Brown. I think we get a Twitter nickname pretty quick, but Chuck to this point on. Yes, how Donald Trump is able to run against Nancy Pelosi. But also the significance of what happened tonight. Is that if about Robert Muller ends up having some very important indictments coming forward that all of a sudden there is now a check on the presidency that did not exist. And of course, to I think that Nancy Pelosi one of her, you know, political. Weaknesses is her unpopularity, one of her strengths. At least if she is going to be the speed. The next speaker is that she knows at least how to herd cats or better than anyone else democratic caucus, and they have to walk that fine line between impeachment and also saying, hey, we want actually get to the bottom of all of this and things haven't been investigated. What are the White House twenty twenty years on the democratic side gonna take away Ben from the following notion? Which is you know, some red state Democrats Joe, Don Donnelly Claire mccaskill Phil Bredesen's bost somewhat handily. Okay. It wasn't. They weren't. You know, they weren't that close. Maybe maybe, you know, four point five point six point seven points. They weren't they weren't nail biters the progressive loss to but boy they were nail biters, right? Gillam in Florida once again, Florida less than one percent landslide. Rick Scott, by the way, how about that guy. Three straight where he gets less. Only percent Stacey Abrams came within two and a half points Mace. Still with provisional ballots ended up in a runoff a better overcame within three. I do find it interesting that while you can't say a clear, the progressives running in red states got a lot closer than the centrists running in red states. Just just say, but it is the Tuesday on adventure to some degree in the sense that you know, we saw in Gillam got close, but he's running against a Santa's who I think most strategists. And most observers would say did not run the world's best campaign. You know, Kemp really lost and won the election. Sometimes that happens where you lose a campaign, but you can win the election to Santa disqualifies for that. So that's the thing. I think that there's just it's it's shoes you're on adventure. But it's one that doesn't leave anyone satisfied because I don't think we come out of this. If you're a twenty Don ear inn, you're trying to figure out and read the tea leaves there really isn't a clear answer to what the strategy is. Because it's sort of damned if you do damned if don't well. I think there's one answer you got to figure how to get your base out. Joe? Donnelly didn't expire didn't inspire the base Kerry. And there were some Missouri. Democrats who? Always worried that Claire mccaskill wasn't firing up African Americans in the Saint Louis area. Well, that's that's right. And I think in in some of these cases, you did see candidates who were personally popular who just were not able to they weren't turning out their base, and they weren't able to translate a personal popularity and a centrism into actually winning Phil Bredesen was very popular Marsha Blackburn was underwater and all of our polling and yet Brenton lost handlers. Any more popular even in the example? Yeah. Absolutely. Yeah. Was still more popularity loss. Right and Donnelly's the same thing Donnelley, you know, enjoyed a pretty good favorability rating among voters who maybe like kind of the nice guy, centrist..

"Of the country's fighting then bendy remember, Sean is it Sean trendy was a big proponent after twenty twelve of claiming there was a missing rural white vote that didn't show up to the. The polls during the eight and twelve campaigns. I think Donald Trump them because that missing rural white vote has now shown up in sixteen and it showed up eighteen in the state of Florida. I look Gillam outperformed Hillary Clinton in a bunch of important counties. Whether it was seminal county just north of Orlando, whether it was penelas, which is the more conservative of the two Tampa Bay area. Swing counties and yet boy in the counties that don't touch saltwater in Florida. Those voters came out Donald Trump's activated that vote, and that's it speaks to to the to the spl split decision here. I mean, you don't need those voters for a lot of these house seats, you know, to win a Clint to win a district Clinton one. You don't need those voters. You need them to win Florida. Governor you need them to win. You know, when Georgia governor for sure, and if you're trying to push into Texas, you're need them. So I think that you know, a lot of the Democrats talking about going on offense can stay a step back in speaker. We know just need our base Mita find these. Here's to let's talk about this new house majority carried in it is powered by women. I mean, I think that this is a story that unfortunately, because there's a lot and the story will get told more and more. I think our numbers at least twenty eight new members are going to be women most of them, Democrats Democrats and elected for in that group elected for the first time, if you look at the first time ever running I ever ran for office for sure and and if you look at the number of if you count incumbents in that number you will see a record number of women in the house more than one hundred that we already know are going to be coming in including incumbents, and again, most of them Democrats of an and particularly of this group of twenty six nets at least eighteen of those are powered by women. They're young women. There is young as Abby thinking our for example in Iowa who's twenty nine years old, so body Alexandria. She will be younger younger. It will be the youngest woman ever elected to the house to got at least Ovonic. Right. Exactly. But it's there is going to be a younger group of women who are in many of whom also talked about Nancy Pelosi when they were running and had to distance themselves said they were going to support her. All right. Nancy pelosi. Well, should be speaker of the house probably. But you gotta count the math. Let's see how big this is. And also for another counterfactual, and why Democrats ended up having a good night by hitting a lot of singles as been mentioned. What would have been the situation had Nancy Pelosi not been had basically said, I'm not going to be running retiring, and all of those I actually think it probably would have helped Democrats at the margins. They might have been able to win a few more seats because his Republicans admitted to us. They had nothing else to run on in some ways, I guess before the cabin closed on Pelosi. Ben you've been doing doing are tracking. How many racist? Did they close with Pelosi? I mean for everything has been Pelosi. It's been the thing. About every single special election. It's been the message every single race. What was the what was your favorite favorite in the National League? Suppo- needless low. I didn't see that. I didn't remember the exact number, but it was the highest on the fame run favorable ratings over fifty percent..

"And before we all go home and get a few seconds of sleep. I'm here with the political unit to try and understand what we learned from the voters today. So joining me are Mark Murray Kerry, Dan, and Ben chemists Sar. All right, Mark first impressions split decision. What is that me? So one good night for House Democrats. They took back. They did what they needed to be able to do a would it actually means is that now of a sudden you are going to have that check and balance on the president United States, which did not exist in the house of representatives. Does also good night for Republicans on the Senate where they're gonna expand that majority. Think of the judicial nominations that might come with that. And then on the governor's side. Democrats got some pretty good pickups. But they also less. Mm stuff on the table. And you know, had they been able to win a Florida or Iowa Rueben a superlative night. Now, we're speaking right now, we don't know how Nevada governor is going to go and the finality on Wisconsin gov. So they could have about seven pickups, but it could have been nine ten or eleven and look we're still waiting on them Senate. We're still waiting on Nevada Senate. We're still waiting on Montana, sending Kerry, Dan. And I I'll be honest that that his that would if Democrats swept all three that would make them feel a lot better about the way the night wind because it meant that would mean some pickups in the Senate they haven't I don't think they've made a pickup yet in a in a Senate race. But you know, they may not get all three, you know. Right. That's the one thing that they're looking at is beyond just this election looking forward Arizona and Nevada both states where they think that they can make inroads not not just now. But in the future with a y you know with the western states with a high Latino. Population. With somebody told me there's going to be like, there's a there's a US Senate race every two years in the state of Arizona for the next ten because of you know, the you have to finish McCain's term, and then appointed senators, we're just gonna have Arizona Senator is going to be in our battleground pretty much for the rest of our careers and NBC news. Right. Exactly. And those are going to be presidential battlegrounds as well as Senate races going forward. And so I think they're looking to those candidates hopefully to to have a little bit of a a silver lining. I mean, what Democrats were able to do in the house is win everywhere that they should have won. They won in a lot of suburban areas. They went in a lot of high education. I think of twenty-seven net pickups that we've counted. So far only four or five of them were below the average for college education there mostly in these very affluent suburban areas, that's great for Democrats. But at the same time, they're not making inroads into those kind of swinging swinging district's where there's a combination of suburban and rural areas, you know, Ben.
