"These all these fighter pilots their you know husbands fathers. They have families. They're not cold hearted killers. I feel like if the government was shooting down dozens of civilian aircraft every year. Somebody would say something i mean. Yeah by now. Somebody on their deathbed would be like and by the way. Yeah i mean. I'm sure it's probably happened once or twice. And we probably don't know about it i would i would. I would agree with because yeah. It's a pretty serious. You can go on youtube. And there's videos of pilots that just get even near the airspace. And they next thing you know. There's you know f sixteen tailing him so it's not something to screw around with but on the other end of the spectrum f sixteen fly slow enough to tail cessna probably not but they will budget and yeah i was trying to think of like can even fly slowly might stay with a prego one hundred and twenty lights if at an angle towards the ground and just rocking thrust. Because they're not getting any lift at. That's yeah yeah more more likely. They probably like radio. You and do a couple lie. Close fly bys like showing their weapons to break the sonic barrier right past. You just be like yeah. You're you're turning around on the other end of the crazy spectrum though. It could be that the aliens area fifty one either abducting these aircraft or maybe the. Us government uses these aircraft to test new advanced alien weapon technology. Well for that one shoot and they couldn't find it. That's one hundred percent right so yeah it sounds like a really cool x files episode in all honestly i. I don't believe the area fifty one or portal theories. I think it's something more simple as you know pilots. Just underestimate the the crazy weather. That happens around mountains but who knows maybe portals. Maybe it's aliens you know. Gotta have. I like to think it's possible. So that is. That is all i had show. I agree with you on that. I think it's it's more likely attributed to the thing that makes the most reasonable sense. But i like to always think that there's something like something. I won't say more sinister going on but something more interesting happening that that makes it worth tuning into our show. I wouldn't i would like to say. I've i've hiked survived two of the triangles now. So i've hiked in the alaska triangle and the nevada triangle. And i've made it out alive so you're starting to really push the boundaries. I know you just gotta go on a sailing trip in the bermuda triangle. Then we'll i have the well. Let's take a little paddle board out miami for like twenty minutes and we'll come back and then we'll technically have done swimming off the beach in miami. You've probably been in the bermuda triangle. So boom done it. Just in tahoe. So there you go so yeah. That's all i had anything else. Joe from your end nope thanks again for tuning into our show. We appreciate all of you for listening and sharing locations with your friends.

Yeah he he basically told me the same thing that he said on fox. He said that You know it's been a long time coming. But the the the final straw for him.

They aren't they know gravity. They know the basics of it but they don't fully understand why mass they don't understand why you know. Why does mass bends space time. So things like that. So i maybe there is some strange thing going on in these areas that we don't know the episode. You were joe on the history channel. When they were talking about the brand new triangle. They talked about that one pilot who was flying and all of a sudden he said he was like in some kind of wormhole and came out the other end and he was over miami but he was hundreds of miles away forty minutes. Yeah yeah. He skipped like forty minutes in time and his clocks it match. And i mean you could. He could be full crap or he could be truthful. Who knows but or there was like a real quick tiny blip in space. Something caused a rift in space time. That allowed that to happen. He was in the right place right time and was lucky enough. That didn't crash playing. I mean there are hundreds of disappearances in the nevada triangle that the plane has never been found. Now that doesn't mean it's in alpha centauri now because it went through some hole but you know it's that simpsons episode where they're all dumping their garbage and aliens aliens on the other side of like adopted all of our trash technology remember like because they're throwing away microsoft zun deep players and all the zoos zoo so i won't spend more time on portal's because my the final theory is one that i really like but yeah it's crazy probably not true but it's fun to talk about. It is fun to talk about. So the final theory is area fifty one in alliens because what would be a good conspiracy episode without talking about area. Fifty one in aliens but the nevada triangle area fifty one does flank. Its eastern border. A big chunk of it. And we we have a whole episode on nets the big chunk that we can see underground. I'd bet it encompasses a larger. Yeah so we did an entire episode area fifty one so you should go back and listen to that one. It's very interesting off plug. Yes self plug. I should actually put the episode number on here. But i show prep like i said. Eastern edge of the nevada triangle sits the highly classified government facility.

"He's not a dumb guy he understands. You know risks. I use a very experienced pilot. I just have questions about what he was doing. If he was out. Searching for somewhere to do a new land speed record that's not up the sierra nevada's that would be you know out in the salt beds of nevada. Sure so i did. Was there something else going on here. Not just pilot error flying too close to the mountains. I know they say a lot of crashes. Do happen in the mountains because pilots are inexperienced. And they underestimate the winds involved in. Yeah this wouldn't be him. This wouldn't be him he wouldn't he pro you know. He went fly that close to the mountains. So i don't know. I i feel like something else was going on with this crash. Maybe he had a medical emergency and became unconscious like had a heart attack. Or something is plane. Just flew too close to the mountains or There was a lot of at the time. There is a lot of rumors going around in the public that he he purposely disappeared to avoid the stress of life. And things like that I don't buy that. He was a and they found the body. Yeah so i mean. It's while he was still missing. I'd say that would be a potential thing. So yeah so i you know the the. The official cause of his disappearance was basically pilot error and wind conditions. i don't i it just doesn't seem like something such an experienced pilot with do What do you think do you kind of same frame of that. Yeah i yeah. I don't think i'm seeing anything here. Hearing anything from you. That sounds super shady. Like with all the experience i mean. Let's look at this way when he when you have experience in you know what you're doing that reduces the likelihood of something going wrong to very small yeah. It doesn't eliminate the fact that he's a human being and human beings make mistakes. No matter how expert yards something all takes his one air. There's also that. I mean he was older and i'm going to use this. Just just as like an ageism thing of you. Take less risks when you get older. You're not like cocky. So i'm not thinking like maybe he was trying to do something crazy. He's probably just playing it smart but who knows maybe he just got to go. Ro- like do something fun. Yeah and made a calculation error or like was taking a risk that he knew as a risk but you know maybe his experience kind of got the best of him in that regard where he thought he could do something in. Couldn't i don't know i i would say. I don't see. Eddie conspiracies here where i would in some of the other stories. Yeah.

The shop passed on a new york times article about looking for climate solutions and this article was written by catrine einhorn. Essentially she reported that ocean bottom trawling for shrimp whiting. Cod and other fish emits as much carbon dioxide into the air as the entire globalization industry. Now this was based on a study published in the journal. Nature and it was pretty enlightening. About how trawling releases. Immense amounts of carbon from the ocean floor and that leads to more acidification of the water and that reduces the oceans capacity to absorb atmospheric carbon dioxide.

John anderson kind of said what we say a lot of times that He believes fossett died on impact and that it wasn't unusual for animals to drag them remains away so got a lot of you know you've got bears in the sierra nevada's and We we mentioned this. That a lot of things can happen to disrupt a you know the remains you especially a year or two later you have animals moving stuff around you could have rain and snow melt moving things so that could explain why the remains were away from the crash site on march fifth of two thousand nine the ntsb issued its report and findings the report states that the plane crashed in elevation of about ten thousand feet. A three hundred feet below the crest of the ridge. The elevations of the peaks in the area exceeded thirteen thousand feet. However the density altitude in the area at the time and place of the crash was estimated to be twelve thousand seven hundred feet. The ntsb declared the probable cause of the crash s. The pilot's inadvertent encounter with downdraft that exceeded the climb capability of the aircraft. Contributing to the accident were down drafts a high density altitude and mountainous terrain so my biggest takeaway with this is obviously flying in the mountain in.

"That fossett was likely to be dead at this point Like we said. He went missing on september third. It's now the twelfth. And i forgot to mention. He's sixty three years old okay so by the twelfth. you know. that's a pretty pretty long time to you know be stuck out in the wilderness and i'm I'm assuming they they're assuming he probably crashed to some extent and he had no food or water with him and chances are he was in a desert like area so the chances of survival are you know pretty slim but so moving on amazon's search effort was shut down the week of twenty ninth without any measurable success. Major cynthia ryan later said it had been more than more of a hindrance than a help. She said the person's purporting to have seen the aircraft on the mechanical turk or have special knowledge clogged or email during critical days of the search. And even for months after the extensible sightings proved to be images of the actual civilian aircraft patrol searching area so or simply mistaken artifacts for old images. So i think they appreciate it. Amazon's gesture of helping out but looking back it really was more of a hindrance than anything so So now on september seventeenth the nevada wing of the civil air patrol said it was suspending all flights in connection with its search operations by the national guard search flights private search flights and ground searchers continued By september nineteenth. Two thousand seven authorities confirmed they would stop actively looking for fossett in the nevada desert but would keep air crews on standby to fly to possible crash lights and on september thirtieth it was announced that after further analysis of radar data from the davis disappearance crown teams and two aircraft had resumed the search so they must have received some kind of information that said all right we should get back out there and look we think we may have found it.

"nevada" Discussed on RJ Politics
"It was the same thing they actually had to lay the groundwork for a couple of years before they finally mastered the process and took over. And that's exactly what we've seen here on the opposite side of the political aisle so they have You know they have won a victory and nobody can take that of victory away from them. I think it's gonna be a little bit rough going. Initially you saw The mainstream folks. It was clear who the establishment quote unquote the establishment wanted to win this election katherine. Cortez masto Who i read Subsequently said she she was not Did not encouraged tick to run totally encourage Rod and him to be the chair She has a personal direct interest in this and that is the fact that she's going to be on the ballot in two years in twenty twenty two. She wants to make sure that she has every advantage and the nevada democratic party being one merged with the read machine was a definite advantage. And so so now. I think what you what you saw and what i heard from people i talked to beforehand was. Was this idea that you know. Look we may win. We may lose the party election. We're probably going to lose. But if we do. No big will just reorganized fallback form new organization and carry out what we need to do to win in that format and so i think that's what's happening and so i think the I think the winners of this democratic party a takeover You know they are probably feeling and not without justification. I sympathize with the star. Probably feeling like look. We said we organize we took over. Were ready to lead here. And now you're taking your ball and going home. And the establishment people are basically saying. Yeah exactly yeah we didn't. We didn't get into power by sharing the power eight exactly. This is not a power sharing agreement. it's harlem entry system it's a winner-take-all and they're taking all and so the losers are also taking all. They took fifty thousand dollars out of the party's coffers and put it into the mix regular right democratic senatorial campaign committee for cortez. Mass does reelection. So so i understand that they're you know there's definitely hard feelings now ticks boom himself as i knew he would because tick is an old political hand and really nothing bothers to guy. It's just probably the result of his super super permanent super mellow attitude because while the marijuana that he has used over the years he just nothing. Nothing fazes the guy. He lost immediately congratulated. You whitmer and said let's work together to make the party work. And and all that that was about the only expression of conciliation unity. That i saw everybody else was was was pretty much in their own camps and so So we'll see we'll see the formation of this para party organization going forward the same way we did with the republican party. And it's just it's it's another hurdle to overcome. The democrats are going to have to overcome. Because now they're going to have to decide to raise money for the or the read machine. You know whatever organization to be named later Or do i do. I work within the party. What's my relationship to the party. Now how is this gonna work. Is the party gonna primary me. I mean that's that's a concern. I think was some democrats especially moderate democrats and yes. There are moderate democrats the the they're probably concerned that you know..

"The president. Joe biden calls the american rescue plan. The big corona virus stimulus package. Make it through both houses after after quite a lot of debate and discussion and get signed. We record these on thursday and it was signed today we also want to talk about sort of dueling and and different Recall attempts for the governors of california and nevada. And how how. Those things look totally different. Somehow but i wanna talk about a subject that we've definitely been talking about quite a lot. These last couple of weeks which was new leadership in the nevada democratic party Over the weekend there was an election and the progressive slate which was Clark county well now now. former clark. County chair judith. Whitmer and a lot of other folks who are democratic socialists who are big supporters of bernie sanders. They really cleaned house over the The sort of establishment democrats not a total surprise when we get into the breakdown of it but definitely jarring definitely a a major change and we saw you know. Sort of immediate fallout in the staff of the envy. Deb's one of the most you know well organized and strongest parties at the statewide level in the whole country. Quit in mass. We saw their consultants. Quit en masse difficulty even getting into the building for the new for the new folks. We had stories on that all this week it was. It was national news. I saw it basically everywhere I was i watched the election. They were gracious enough to allow me in even beyond what i was allowed in ice saw. The actual debate and discussion happen. They they let me and even though it was only four central committee members so we can certainly talk about that. But i'm curious steve as somebody was just you know hopefully relaxing on a saturday. What did you think well. As a matter of fact. I was relaxing on on a saturday. Smoking as a fine cigar and chatting with some friends. But we were chatting about this. This is one of the subjects that we were talking about and And and i. Let's just say off the top. You've got to hand it to the slate of progressives took over the party You know we always here People told look if you don't like the way things are Get involved you know. Change change the system persuade other people that your point of view the right point of view and get involved and do something about it. These folks did exactly that. They took that advice. They got involved. They went about the process of organizing. And it is not easy. These parties and elections can be very byzantine at times. So you gotta you gotta take your hat off to to The folks who took over to judith whitmer and her slate of candidates it was it was not an easy thing i mean they they had laid the groundwork of this for a long time. When the when the ron paul people took over the republican party. It didn't happen overnight..
The U.S. could manufacture batteries, but its a dirty business
"The key to a cleaner. Energy future is batteries. Regular listeners will know. I'm a little obsessed with this topic. And now i'm not alone last week. Gm confirmed plans for new battery production. Plant somewhere in the us and last month president biden or a review of the domestic supply chain for large capacity batteries right now. Most of the materials for making batteries come from other countries of those metals including lithium and cobalt can be found here in the us. Chris bury is a strategic metals consultant and president of house mountain partners a lot of people when they hear lithium cobalt two rare earth elements. They think that these resources are rare. And they're actually not. I mean you could actually extract from seawater if you had the right technology and the incentive price was high enough so you know you really need three factors to line up to make this happen in the united states number one is need ample capital number. Two is you need political. Will and the third factor is time. Let's those apart a little bit so the capital in some ways that's happening. Does there need to be commensurate. Investment from the united states is it all private. capital could carbon tax. Play into this. I think the majority of the capital that is going to build out the supply chain Is gonna come from the capital markets themselves. I think the government will really be there to backstop some of these strategic projects. But i would not expect the us government whether or not it's specific departments like energy or defense to match the scale of capital in the private markets and then what are the political hurdles to establishing like a new manufacturing industry in the united states. That seems like sort of a no brainer. Actually the challenge has always been. How do we build these minds okay. Mining is quite frankly. It's been a dirty word in the united states for a long time. You have that sort of nimby view where it's great to have access to the raw materials rather than they come from the drc or from china or areas south america. But you know just will mind it elsewhere and we'll import it here in the united states and you know my view has always been that security of supply of the raw material. Is the most important piece of this supply chain. it's interesting though because mining has just been a dirty word. It's been a dirty practice. And so i wonder could the prospect of doing that domestically has to clean up. That industry writ large. Yeah i think. That's a great point. And i completely agree. You know one of the things. I think we really learned from cova and from the us. China trade war was it exposed weaknesses in existing supply chains. One of which was again really not sure about mining practices in countries like china and use them as an example. Because there's sort of the eight hundred pound gorilla when you talk about these supply chains but you know the more of that supply chain that we can bring home and put kind of fresh set of eyes on it. you can kinda rest assured us a consumer that you're utilizing western technology to mine and refine these materials. You know it may be a little bit more expensive. Obviously because of labor costs in particular. But again i think that's probably the price that we're going to pay to make sure that there is full accountability along the supply chain which is what's consumers and governments alike are all looking for right now. If the third aspect is time there is research happening now into creating different types of batteries like do you think that if we put in a big effort to get supply chains here in plus years. We could have moved onto other materials then lithium by then Four automotive capabilities. I don't think anything is going to take the place of lithium ion for the next fifteen years and there is a fair amount of rnd in particular going. Into what would i what i would call next generation lithium ion. But i wouldn't think you'd see really quantum leaps in lithium ion before thousand twenty five. Maybe twenty twenty seven at the earliest. So you know the time is now to build out the infrastructure. Do you think it's an happen. How do you feel about this moment. I think i think you know if we want to use a baseball analogy. Were sort of at the second inning here. I think that what's going to happen over the next. Just this decade. Is i think mobility in particular is going to be completely transformed. I think that the lithium ion battery is going to get much cheaper in terms of dollars per kilowatt hour. That's man that's how you value these batteries. But i think it's going to get a lot cheaper much more quickly than people believe. And that's why you know. The size of the prizes is so enormous. that's why you see countries like china. We want to have twenty five percent of our overall vehicle sales by two thousand twenty five be electric. That's why you see the european union focusing on what they're calling the green new deal to really build out their own self sufficient supply chain again. This is a climate change issue but it's also an enormous issue for job creation also increasing the tax base. So it's it's a. It's a rare opportunity where i think regardless of where you are on the political spectrum. You know maybe you're a hawk and you're worried about national security. You're more of a dove and you're focused on climate change. Everybody can benefit from this. So i think that it's just really an enormous opportunity out over the next five to seven years. Chris bury is a strategic metals consultant and president of house mountain partners in january. The federal government approved a large lithium mining operation in nevada. Critics say the approval process was fast tracked at the expense of environmental concerns and now for some related links. There's more reading at marketplace tech or about this lithium mine in nevada in two thousand eighteen. The federal government fast track approval for lithium mining permits. This mine has been portrayed as a way to speed economic recovery. During the pandemic nearby native american tribes hope it will provide jobs on a neighboring reservation. But as chris bury noted everyone is worried about the environmental impact. There are also concerns in nevada about jobs not being distributed to nearby communities and the speed of the approval process which limited public on the mind. So yeah even. Our transition to a greener economy comes with some serious trade-offs and if we don't bring mining to the us that just means outsourcing it to places where the mining practices are not only dirty but carry pretty well documented human rights abuses with them to like child labor allegations and yet this supply chain is the key to transitioning away from fossil fuels. The us is poised to become a big supplier and demand is only going up. But as we mentioned perhaps bringing more mining production the us could shine a light on how these materials are mind and for some improvements.

"To keep it together in the world's not together so you so you wrote all these pieces pre pandemic. even though it wasn't together it felt a little bit more normal. And i wanted to bring you back. Because the latter i mean we talked in the summer Through the video show that we do but not in the podcast but the last year on you were voting in your first caucus in nevada. That was the last time you've been on. Remember that and you were there you were there. You're in the room man. And i i got right there. I got what they promoted me. They picked me as a precinct. Captain for the bernie team heels crazy tortilla about nevada. And what people need to know. Because i saw a lot of what you were posting but is it. I guess my question is is it solidly a blue state route. I thought it was solid. Right i mean hillary one pretty well in Back in two thousand sixteen and Bernie carried nevada rate in in the primary. And so i you know i'm like i'm gonna vote. I didn't even think. Nevada is going to be a big deal and but biden only biden. Only one by thirty now the votes have just come into fisher unofficial count as he won by thirty three thousand votes Two point three nine which is a little less than hillary's two point four two into thousand So there's that but also you know i was just reading. I'm reading waiting for the for the interview for this appearance. And thank you for having me on and by the way. I'm so excited that you are and You know Fifteen out of the eighteen contested district court seats for judge were filled by women while in this recent election. Yeah it's crazy it's it's a you know most of the now it's mostly women coming in and they think it's something like twenty four out of thirty six seats or department heads are gonna be women so it's it's a weird state man people in nevada and i can say that from having lived there for four years and being born and raised in chicago. Somewhere else People in nevada nevada's weird say clark. County is weird too weird place It's it's very Since everybody comes from everywhere else it's not like there's a home grown. There's a home a little bit of a homegrown culture but you know there could be radical progressives here radical liberals here but also hardcore republicans hardcore conservatives and i know my neighbor last year know four years ago i had another neighbor and They were a little older than me and rossio my wife and chilling the whole august september. October then come to find out on. November voted for trump. I have new neighbours this year. And they had their trump pence up sign in their window which was weird those that they took it down the weekend before the election on the day of the election. I saw them like with their bags outside in the morning. Waiting for newburgh. They were getting out of town. So i was like okay. Trump pence neighbors are getting out of town for election day. Something's bruin already make out of it. I mean in the state because it seems like it's like a mixed bag but obviously it was a state that brought to biden. It's one of the states that put him over the top. I mean there's an argument. And this is harry harry reid state right. People remember harry reid strong democratic leader in the senate I think it's we're getting a lot of influx of talked about this before on your show in pieces getting a lot of influx from california. We're getting a lot of influx from chicago. And so i think it's it's contentious because of the i think the nature of politics in america generally right where it you know would is going to win by three zero. Six electoral votes. I think was the last time i saw. Yeah it's the same. As the team spread as the two thousand and six the other way right i mean which was a land landslides by the election in the electoral count. Right but vote wise. I mean that's we. America four years of trump and they still almost reelected him right and i had called that he was going to be reelected. And so i'm pleasantly surprised. But i'm not surprised by how close it was right because we're just such a divided country in nevada like i guess is very representative of america. I think i've said that before. And there's a diversity here so it's i guess it shouldn't have surprised me that it was so close in state. So what about the you know. A lot of stuff though is talked about when bernie sanders kind of In the primary kind of looked clarke county because hillary had won and they were investing and they were connecting with grassroots organizers. Talk to me about like. Do you think that transferred in terms of the excitement. You know i wouldn't say excitement but did you think like the biden. Vote benefited at all from all these young activists that you i mean you you you rode with some of them. Yeah what was the vibe. Was it more like we gotta get trump out and it's law. Physics right and energy isn't destroyed. It's only transferred. So like yeah bernie. He had jim bernie campaign. Maybe didn't do as well as to sixteen. But it's still you know it's still a he'd been he'd been working with our revolution. You know really people to this to two thousand twenty. And when he didn't when he got robbed again like us bernie people like to say you know and there's evidence for that when he got robbed again cleaner rob this time so it just happened. I think he gave up easier and our people gave up easier but that energy has to go somewhere right. And we're like you know f it we're not gonna you know we're not just going to lay down. Let let trump re get reelected. I voted for for biden this year. I didn't want to. I was i didn't have as much beef with him as i did. With hillary Because of hunters. But there's beef with with biden with people like biden You see what he was his cabinet. He's gonna bring it insiders ride easy singing of getting up. Republicans in there. I mean it's going to be like you know the meam says you know now. We're back to racism as usual now. We're back to capitalism as usual. Now we're back to the system as usual which is still doing. We had a problem in two thousand sixteen that we were hoping to get fixed and so we're back to two thousand sixteen really and just further down the road and as far as climate change as far as having to deal with this pandemic now now we have to pull ourselves back out of another recession. So there's there's things that it doesn't look good for the working classes say that And he's he's promised to take care of immigration on day one. I mean we've heard that before. We heard that about what twelve years ago with with obama. So we'll see we'll see. I mean you know i hate to be a cynic but reality when reality keeps proving you right you know. You could be hopeful. I'm hopeful always hopeful bra. You've seen you've seen out goes. Yeah i mean. Let's stick to that because one of the things i in talking to so many people on the left we're saying well let's we gotta get trump out to vote for biden and then we're going to hold biden and harris accountable And i it seems like that's what's going to be happening and i'm talking about the left that that kind of sided with sanders crowd that there's already attention but i'm already seeing a lot of pushback on that as well. What are what are your thoughts about. Sort of like neuro. Don't rock the boat. But it's consistent with what i've heard people on the left saying it's like okay. We're not make you president. I'm going to vote for you. But then we're going to hold you accountable. And that's already kind of been like don't do their hut. It's the middle pandemic. What the centrists are in part are in charge are in power there in power in the democratic party right. The centrists and moderates in the party is as far as the officials leaders and the voters right to vote is in power There are progressives you know. Young millennial people like me..

"It's doll play to what they want to happen. They've picked him because they think he's the most incendiary candidate. So if the truly patriotic thing to me to do in this situation is Bernie is is an American who loves his country and wants. What's best for America? And we'll let the democratic process decide to feed the flames of that or to feed the distrust not just of the electoral process but of the National Intelligence Community. Which is what President. Trump has responded. You Know Bernie said get out of our election. His response was the right response. Trump was like. I don't know they didn't tell me this. Like and what university they briefing Bernie but not trump give me a break and like denouncing it and then firing people who give those reports. It's just also concerning this past like grudges. This is a a this. Filling every position with loyalist is so so troubling especially in the face of the knowledge that Russia is most certainly trying to interfere again. That's right and I know a lot of people. Just don't care about the way. President trump runs executive branch. They just don't care about the personnel decisions if what impacts them in their lives is working out. Okay they're okay. I read this wonderful piece in the Atlantic that will link in the show notes. About how one of the things that has to happen. In the general election conversation is a reckoning between what his actually transpired under Donald Trump in terms of foreign policy and all the the earth is ending alarm bells that have gone off about the Donald Trump presidency. It starts out with you know. Hey we're in a protracted war with Iran and North Korea because that's what Democrats have told us is going to happen under Donald Trump for the last four years and neither has happened and it's not that his foreign policy has been hugely successful and wonderful but it hasn't been as doomsday as it had been foretold to be. I think that is both true. And incomplete because I do think four more years of the president without meaningful checks from Congress is a scary proposition. But I think the same holds true on the other side if I say to myself well. It hasn't all been a complete catastrophe. Donald Trump. Even if I think that Bernie Sanders is actually a pure Marxist. Who is into Marxism for all of the worst and most selfish reasons which I don't think that but let's say that I do which pointed out that I have to put the same container around him right because fortunately in our system it is really hard to do things and so I just think that the the Patriotic Act right now is to borrow from the British and like keep calm and carry on everybody. Let's just play this primary out. See where it goes but if if a bunch of people rush in at a very high level now in a stop Bernie kind of way that also plays right into Russia's hands because we have sown this seed of America and regular actual American voter who is not an elected official a journalist or corporate. Mogul every single thing is conspiring against you and and we gotta shake that lease this goes to something. I've been thinking a lot about and I could not agree more that to keep calm and carry on does not mean to you know not no. You don't mean this to tune out of the political process to assume the right person will win like we did in two thousand sixteen but I feel pretty passionately. It does mean to get the hell off social media because no political. Power is exchanged on social media. I Really Want Elizabeth Warren to win so on Friday. I signed up and I made calls for Elizabeth Warren to Nevada. And I plan on going to Tennessee. Which is my clothes. Swing STATE INTO KNOCK DOORS FOR Elizabeth Warren and also I'm deactivating my facebook account for lint and perhaps forever because I just think if you are concerned with this sort of interference if you're concerned with a political tenor the we all just have to acknowledge that almost nothing good comes out of us being in those places and trying to convince each other over facebook not a real exchange of power. It's just an emotional exercise that is easily exploited and manipulated not only by Russia but by the campaigns themselves and I just. I just wanted to stop. My husband keeps making fun of me because I'm like entering every room. I get into and just screaming. Facebook is the devil's playground. Like I just my passion about this is increasing by the day If we take anything away from twenty sixteen how could it not be that? That is really dangerous place to believe that that is where we should all be to talk about and to deal with our political environment. It's not it's the it's the opposite sedans playground. I'm GonNa make shirts I think. Yeah I think that's the carry on portion of keep calm because what we really need to combat that sense of conspiracy is actual agency in our own lives and you can derive that agency by knocking doors or making calls or just having conversations with the people in your life and reading and thinking critically. I think that you lose your sense of agency. When you get too absorbed in polling in punditry or if you just subject to yourself two hours of scrolling where else in my life am I gonNA put myself in a space for other people to just yell the same thing over and over and over at me and that's really? What election twitter feels like to me? is certainly what facebook feels like. It's not all social. Media is horrible but this particular use of social media to yell at each other about elections. I think it's pretty safe to say we don't have to have nuance about. It's just bad. It's really bad in it's creepy. It's hard to sift through. Yes and here's what I told my husband. I'm like think it you know. In this particular political controversy in my hometown. Everyone is just so fired up and there is a lot of ignorance around the topic. It's not surprising. Everybody can't be an expert on everything and especially if you're entering a conversation late in the game you're not going to know everything and I said you know. The thing about it is is twenty years ago. People were just as ignorant. Nobody wants to hear that. And I know that sort of an inflammatory word but I mean like people had opinions about things. They weren't completely informed on. That's just a human way. Okay particularly the American way but we just talked about it around our kitchen tables. We all didn't have to witness the entire populations lack of complete information on every topic. And I think that was a gift. Okay not because I think we can solve it not because I think People don't deserve basic human kindness and that there is space in humanity for everybody to not to be an expert on every damn thing just because information's out there on the Internet but just because it's exhausting and I don't think we're supposed to be exposed to every single person in our entire social circle. Ambience opinions about everything it's exhausting. It's not great for our view on humanity. It makes us cynical or on the opposite. It makes you a conspiracy theorist is just. It's not great. It's not great. It's feel so strongly about this is the devil's playground especially when it comes to politics. I can't tell you how good for my soul. It was two on Friday just and make calls for her and then on Saturday to turn my phone off 'cause I'm back to doing texture bots thank goodness because during our travels it really really messed with my weekly practice. But I turned my phone off. I got away from it all doing those. Two things together felt incredible. It felt incredible. And I just don't have any real desire to go back to you know scrolling through facebook and being perpetually mad at my fellow citizens and fellow community members and friends and family because they don't understand agree. Whatever it's just it's bad. It's those playground Hashtag Devil's playground. That's what makes everybody not really because we shouldn't be anywhere. Thanks Trent. I know. I almost think we shouldn't have ashtrays anymore. I've been thinking about that a lot to me. That the real issue is that social media was supposed to be about connection and what it offers instead is isolation masquerading connection offers instead the deepest forms of loneliness in this the seeking of attention and the looking for places to fit in and so around elections. That's just bad news. It's it's really bad news in and it does make you feel powerless. If you spend an hour on social media you start to think. Of course. Trump's GONNA win reelection or of course Bernie is a socialist or of course Bernie's GonNa win. Why work for anybody else or whatever it is and none of those things build up the sense that citizenship actually matters in its application that we need to seriously transform our political system.

"Look at this point for winning the majority of delegates now that we've input the Nevada results into our primary forecast so we have both results and we had some further. Polling came in overnight. We finally got some more post-debate polls from YouGov and other people so Sanders is clearly by far the most likely Democrat to win a majority we have him with almost a fifty percent chance of forty six percent and most of the non sandwiches win. There's no majority. It's a forty percent chance still. So if you look at a plurality because there could be a case where Bernie gets forty five percent of delegates. Anyone else's clothes you think he'd be nominated in that instance so he as sixty nine percent chance of getting a plurality of delegates so he's really in the driver's seat. I would use the phrase that it's his nomination to lose it's both because of his strength and because of the frankly weakness of any of the alternatives biden actually was helped a tiny bit by the goings on in the past twenty four hours. He did beat his polls by a couple of points here and there was a South Carolina. Poll that came out that showed him still eating there after the debate. And so you know. He's the one who could still if he wins South Carolina then the starts to look like a a competitive race again. Compare it doesn't mean it's fifty fifty. You probably still rather be burning. But he does have this path if you went South Carolina and we kind of maybe get the kind of sanders versus Biden. Showdown that some of the stuff. We might get all along. Meanwhile Bloomberg has not been polling well and post-debate polls his odds have fallen. Warren actually has been polling. Okay after the debate but there's not a ton of data yet but for anyone except for sanders and then Biden and maybe Bloomberg I mean everyone else is like a lot of work left to do and when not name Sanders it would be at this point like an upset for them to win the the majority to rallies is more employees could get messy. You know we do need to keep in mind that like these three states that we had so far as South Carolina. Also they all have their their curious elements right. Where is it kind of caucus or caucus primarily hybrid? Although up from past years is still relatively. Low is a pop-up portion of the state overall. So you know you see kind of fluky. Results that may or may not prove to be indicative of broader trends. But so far we've seen across the three different environments we've Seen Bernie perform well and no one else be quite consistent when we talk about the trajectory of the primary so far in large part were talking about momentum because the actual delegate totals based on the three contests so far are minimal right. They're not going to really help you win the nomination does. It seem at this point that sanders is kind of from. I were to Hampshire to Nevada and that could now make them competitive in South Carolina. Does it seem like with each contest. He's gaining more and more support or like you mentioned is Nevada more fluky because it is a caucus and his strong supporters showing up while maybe people who voted for Biden and a primary or staying home. We don't know I mean you can't really extrapolated a trend line from three data points. I thought his performance in New Hampshire was not particularly impressive given from neighboring state and got what twenty five or twenty six percent of the vote. So this is like the first performance that like the Israeli kind of deeply impressive by Bernie because of the breadth and the margins of what he did here whereas Iowa I mean we. We still don't know who officially won the delegate Count Niwa by the way I wa and New Hampshire. That was more like okay. This is kind of attritional. Parts of the Bernie Coalition. He's in the mid twenties. No one else can reach the mid twenty. Maybe Mayor Pete I mean. I don't think there's all that gray but this result is a great result for Bernie in the most diverse state so far. But we don't know right you know. In South Carolina. He is kind of now polling in the in the low twenties. The question is like would that be enough to win? I think probably not. It seems like you know Biden does seem to have at the very least like a little bit of a floor that he's found and so I think you know but we'll see I mean. In Theory. Sanders will get a further bounce from winning Nevada and being in the national conversation as a winner and so that could boost him. You know subjectively I think. South Carolina is likely to be one of the five were states for him on the Mat. Not JUST BACK AMERICANS. He does well with with some after American voters but like you know older more. Moderate more conservative white voters. It tends to be a fairly pro establishment state right. We remember for example Clinton winning by a big margin in South Carolina in sixteen bigger than the polls forecasted actually and so you know I don't want to like throw any cold water on like sanders performance but I think there is always the danger of overreacting to one event right with the model shows the models like okay. Two things we can say certainly Bernie is way more likely than anyone else to win a majority. You know however number two there is still a pathway where this kind of stays quite messy and where there's no majority and a path where Joe Biden win. South Carolina is maybe puts us back on that no majority path. I want to ask NATO question. 'cause I'm I'm a little bit. I'm not sure which argument I but I do think. There's another argument. And you mentioned you thought that. Bernie's performance in New Hampshire was not that impressive and I guess the counter argument to that which I guess I lean towards is this isn't like twenty-sixth theme when there was a clear contrast between himself and and Hillary and he crushed her. And now you have four or five. Other fairly robust campaigns going against them and he still managed to pull to pull out. I know he's a neighboring senator. Did you give any credence to that at all the comparison I think I'm not comparing verses? Twenty sixteen but I do think that the neighboring state thing matters quite a bit you can model it out and Beekman neighboring state probably is worth is worth five or six or seven points or something like that and so you know if Bernie Sanders is from Connecticut and not Vermont. I'm not sure if he does as well in western New Hampshire Musher if he wins the state right He also may have been lucky in New Hampshire that mayor. Pete had some of his debate bounce stolen by club. Shar who have kind of very similar. Overlapping voter. So that's what I'm saying. Right we are. We were one point. Five percent of the vote away. Maybe one bad amy Klobuchar debate away from a narrative where now Bernie is over two in his first two states right. Of course I think that by the popular about metric one Iowa but like these are pretty thin margin the first two states and so I think I think the big robust win is pretty meaningful here. But I'm just trying to There's a fifty fifty chance roughly speaking that when we're having this conversation week from now that Joe Biden will have one South Carolina and we're having these conversations about oh well now. There are new doubts about Bernie recipes trying to get like a little bit ahead of the game and say no other. Democrat can be remotely happy with with the hand. They have to play here but it is still. It is still pretty early and we don't yet know kind of how this will translate to other states. Yeah I do think that Gal said at the beginning of this part of the conversation about delegates not being as important in these early states is absolutely right. I've always believed that in the narrative. Either that is real or constructed by the media covering it. The the the About momentum and how many tickets are gained out of Iowa and then New Hampshire and then the Vatican. Because I was so muddled this time I think that that calculus may be changed a little bit. Maybe I wasn't that that important but Bernie Sanders clearly has momentum built up over the first three states going into South Carolina and Biden has lost so much ground in South Carolina that. I don't think it's unreasonable. To believe that Bernie could win in South Carolina. There's still two more speaking of data points to come. Which is what happens in in the debate. This week I I that could affect the the polling and if Clyburn is going to endorse on Wednesday morning might he be waiting to see if Biden does all right in that debate to move forward with an endorsement or not and both those things could have an impact on the polls in South Carolina? And I think if Bernie I I don't need a nate silver model to tell me that Bernie Win South Carolina. That that he is going to be the prohibitive favorite for the nomination. And maybe even a favourite t t to get a majority of delegates. Oh Yeah if he wins South Carolina you can be a very heavy favourite. I'm pretty sure in our model. But but we're actually so our models into account for momentum that he gets it right now that Bernie's behind in South Carolina however it predicts that he'll get momentum from Nevada and therefore it makes it more or less a toss up it has biden with forty seven percent chance burning at forty three and I think the rest is mostly Tom Steyer. We haven't talked about yet who Is still kind of close in the South Carolina polls? So I'm saying like this forecast. Bernie accounts for NATTA momentum in theory may be overweight. Sit maybe at underweight sit maybe it miss weights it you know. I don't know right but we're playing in the fact that it's a big win and that usually you get a boost in national polls in the polls in the next stage when that when that happens so John. You mentioned actually another data point between now and when South Carolina votes is the possibility that the majority whip James Clyburn from South Carolina endorses. Somebody and mentioned as a preview that we're GONNA be talking to Clyburn this coming week so we'll see where he has to say about that. You know nate you said that no other. Democrat is looking at the hand that they have right now and is particularly happy so while we're talking about the Nevada results. I do want to the other candidates and talk about what hand they are actually looking at John who made up Biden and Buddha judges coalitions the two people vying for second at this point. They're clearly vying for some of the same voters. And that's a big problem for them. And that's why a mayor Pete's campaign just sent a letter to the State Democratic Party here raising questions about the results. It's why Biden for two days going into the caucus raised questions about whether they were going to be valid or not. They're playing for the same voters. They're playing for the same kind of momentum if mayor Pete were to finish in second here when all of a sudden done and I think that's relatively unlikely but it's possible that he will be able to say look at the first three states I it's it's Bernie and me one two and that's what you should be talking about. As nate pointed out earlier Biden gets second here even though it's a distant second that no one should brag about. He won't let me well of course brag about it and used as as trying to get momentum to to hold on in South Carolina and then Super Tuesday could change the dynamic because there are so many states voting and so many delegates in play and so the biggest problem for all the other. Democrats is that is that Bernie has his X. number of percent and the and the rest are vying to cut up the the the the the remaining pie and that's just a problem and that is why I think the attacks are going to be even sharper between Biden and Buddha judge in the debate this weekend. Listen warrants campaign. Now is trying to paint her. As as the Comeback Kid is opposed the Biden. Saying a lot of what she did during that debate Did Not show up in the caucuses because seventy five thousand people at already voted and they're even putting out anecdotal evidence that people showed up yesterday. We're talking about how they're sorry. She wasn't viable in their precinct because they were so excited about her. So I do think that the that the bait could have an impact again but it also might not depending on what happens. Then right nate. You said the night of the debate. That you disagreed. That early voting would prevent Warren from reaping the benefits of her strong debate because early voters were generally the kind of people who had already made up their minds and so weren't going to be the kind of late deciders. Who WOULD GO FOR WARREN? Warren did do it. Looks like better on caucus day than she did with early. Voters do think there is any sense. That early voting prevented Warren from reading some of the benefits of her strong debate. I mean any any is a low bar to clear you know..

"This. Nevada caucus results edition of the fivethirtyeight politics podcast. I'm Galen Droop at the time of this recording Sunday afternoon about sixty percent of the precincts in Nevada have reported their results. We won't have a full picture of how second and third place panned out until the remainder of the results come in but one thing is clear it was a good showing for Bernie Sanders who came in an unquestionable first place at the moment. Here's what the delegate tally. Looks like forty six percent for Sanders. Twenty percent for Biden fifteen percent for Buddha judge ten percent for Warren five percent for closure and four percent for star. We're going to discuss what those results mean the voting patterns behind them. And what comes next and here with me from Nevada to discuss our editor in chief nate silver. Hey how's IT Goin'? Schooling will thank you galen. How's Your Luck? So far in the Casino. I played a little bit of poker. Did really well the first night and not so well the second and third nights but so far the success of the first night outweighs the mediocrity from nights two and three good to hear and also with us is special. Guest John Ralston. Who is the editor of the Nevada independent and if you watched the democratic debate in Nevada you also saw that he was one of the moderators. So Hey John. How's it going? Thanks for joining us. I'm doing well but my first question is nate. Where where did you play poker? Because I play a lot so I was at the Bellagio. The first two nights and then at Aria last night. Yeah I played a lot. I'd live just look right across the way from area so I can walk and so I play there a lot but I played at Balaj was well. I was hoping to play in like the wind has like a winner. Poker classically determined that you could register till until four forty five and of course we did not really know very much about who actually got what results until right around then so it didn't work out but you know the cash games are always fun. Okay yeah okay. Poker forget forget that forget that okay so to avoid playing too much into the stereotypes of Nevada. There's obviously more to the state than poker gambling casinos etc. A lot of Nevada's weighed in last night on who they want the Democratic nominee to be so John. Let's start with you. We have results from sixty percent of the precincts looking at where the results are coming from. And what remains? How much do you expect these numbers to change? Once we have full results. Well it's a little bit hard to speculate on that I mean most of the precincts that are out Just like most of the state is from Clark County Las Vegas area and if if those hold and if if the patterns of the first half of the vote in Clark County hold than than Joe Biden is probably to hold on to second place and that seems to be a big deal only to Joe Biden and p Buddha judge who were arguing about who is the second place finisher but when you finish you know more than two to one behind the front runner that's just for the purposes of spin going into South Carolina and Super Tuesday so nate Sandra's average in the Nevada polls leading up to caucus day was thirty one percent. How big of an over performance. Worst Sanders as results last the polls predict the first instance vote so he initially caucus with when you enter the room and in that number. He's at thirty three percent. So considering there are undecideds the polls actually did really well. Then you have okay so the polls yes so. This is important right braided. Well no matter how you look but like went from thirty three percent of the raw vote to thirty nine of the vote after we allocations because he was viable Almost every precinct to the forty s in county delegates and so in each version of that. Count Bernie did better than the previous one. And so that's important the polls actually were extremely precisely right on every pull individually the you know one head right but like the pulling average was quite precisely accurate and the forecast about reallocation was accurate. But yeah so people should not view this as an over performance by sanders. This is in line with what was expected. Going into the Nevada caucuses. Yeah I mean if you look at him being way ahead in the polls anyway then you say okay well. He is comfortably above fifteen percent and no one else's and it was quite predictable. Bet He would get up to thirty nine or forty percent in the second instance. I don't think anyone knew that he would also get a boost from county delegates relative to the real line vote We don't try to forecast that but from a kind of polling or forecast standpoint than for all the concern about Nevada being hard to pull than some of these late polls the data for progress polls let showed burning in the mid thirties. That's exactly what actually happened. Based on based on the first instance vote which is what the polls are trying to predict all right so John what contributed to sanders when looking at the entrance polls what parts of the electric did he do well with he did pretty well with almost all parts of the electorate and and what those entrance poll shows number one. He's did fantastically well. With the Latino voters was showed up polling a beforehand and it was pretty clear from what was going on on the ground to end. And if you see look what happened and I mentioned this already. But the Hispanic turnout in those caucuses for the Culinary Union which is heavily Hispanic which took place mostly on the strip Bernie one almost all of those and that is not insignificant The second thing if I recall correctly and I'm sure if I were calling correctly. Nate will correct me is even in the moderate vote which it's kind of a microcosm of the entire campaign. Bernie did all right with the moderate vote because the the rest of it is being split among so many other candidates and of course that is why or at least part of the reason why Bernie. Sanders is the front runner. But there's one other thing well actually to other things if you'll permit me the why he did well here number one. It's been clear from the beginning that the most fervent supporters for any candidate are those of Bernie Sanders is core support. They're not going anywhere no matter what happens. And so he had that but he also had this time As opposed to twenty sixteen when he did well in Nevada. He had a organization. Here run by political pros. Were able to harness that passion and energy into a formidable turnout machine Both in early voting. I believe yesterday and so that that is why he won and did so. Well across a variety of demographics. Yeah looking at the entrance polls. It looked like Santa. Getting about twenty percent of the moderate vote and the outright majority fifty three percent of the Hispanic vote he also did decently well with black voters still behind Joe Biden but not by the kind of gap that we saw in twenty sixteen against Hillary Clinton so looking at Bernie Sanders as coalition broadly now given the Nevada is more representative of the Democratic Party. It's a bit more diverse. How does sanders? Coalition look in twenty twenty from two thousand sixteen. Well the Hispanic portion of it is I think the big shift right. I mean it's a little bit apples to oranges. Because in two thousand sixteen sanders was in a two way race in here. He's in a however many candidate viable race but clearly like the Hispanic vote mostly stuck with Hillary Clinton in most states in two thousand sixteen And it's a big advantage for burning out not only here in Nevada but obviously California and Texas are the two largest Super Tuesday states. So that's quite important. His coalition I think actually has become a little bit more liberal so in this state he did decently well among moderates. The twenty percent is kind of more a reflection of the fact that no one else is doing particularly well here If anything it's actually like a a more liberal coalition in New Hampshire for example it got much less of the moderate vote. So you know. It's more racially diverse and it's more liberal and those two things are working out just fine for him so far but it does kind of a little bit of a room still kind of the moderate sodomy. We go back and forth about kind of you. Know what these lanes mean the thing that kind of transcends for Bernie most lanes is age. Where if you are a Democrat under the age of fifty five or so then you probably have a good impression Bernie Sanders whether you're white black Hispanic Asian or other. You may or may not have as your first choice but you probably think of him favorably. If you're a senior citizen then you may not and Nevada is a relatively young state which also helped earn here. John we've mentioned now that Bernie. Sanders did well among Hispanic voters. And you said that he had a significant turn out operation with political pros on the ground in Nevada. What specifically was the campaign doing? Why did he do so well? With Hispanic and Latino voters and was it a turnout thing where he was just people that he already knew who supported him to turn out or was he working on persuasion in the Hispanic community and campaigning to them in a way that maybe they hadn't been campaign to before. I think it's a little bit of both. His campaign clearly made that a priority and there have been in-depth pieces written in. I know Dave Weigel at the Washington Post on a of reporting on on how Bernie appeal to Latino voters here and he and he sought coming months ago another really good piece in the New Yorker about it as well but that is why the Culinary Union when they finally decided to speak out and not endorse but speak out against Bernie By saying he was going to end their healthcare even if they had endorsed. I'm not sure how much of a difference they could have made. Because he had support within the Culinary Union already with his messaging To to to the Latino community and so turning around that big organization sixty thousand people Just is not that easy in so Bernie saw that and so he started early with them. You may recall that in two thousand eight right after Hillary one New Hampshire the Culinary Union the day after that primary endorsed Barack Obama and made a big show of it and in Obama campaign made a big deal of it but Hillary still one Nevada and she did very well in those caucuses now. She won the popular vote because she didn't understand caucus than Obama did He won an extra one more delegates but Bernie knew from his experience in two thousand sixteen. What he needed to do to to to get the Hispanic vote in the culinary. Union is the Hispanic turnout operation inside of the Democratic Party and so they were very strategic in how they behave this time. Thinking about turnout more. Broadly John How did turn out this year? Compare with turnout in past caucuses given that early voting wasn't an option. I'm still trying to get that final number. As a matter of fact I hope to have it before this podcast and I'm sorry I don't but here's what it looks like When they first had their first caucus I really state caucus in two thousand eight they got about just under a hundred eighteen thousand. I believe the number was four years ago. It was eighty four thousand They didn't have early voting either of those times. They put it in this this year. Four days of it and they had what I thought was a pretty remarkable turn out Seventy five thousand or so and so whatever. The final number turns out to be with voting. Yesterday it's going to be passed two thousand and sixteen in May get past two thousand eight again. I'm not positive which precincts are still outstanding. But there are a lot of them The the that are still outstanding. And so it looks to me like they will. At least eclipse to twenty-six they may get past two thousand eight which. I don't think anybody thought they were going to do. And in general I know caucus can have weird turnout in that. They largely attract the most enthusiastic supporters. Who are willing to spend two hours in a casino ballroom. But is the caucus electorate from yesterday reflective of the democratic electorate in Nevada. From what you can tell it seems to be or within the margin of error and it has been in past caucuses as well. No it may be different this time. Because of the early voting component I mean truly not appear caucus anymore right. It's it's a hybrid. They go in for four days and they just fill out a ballot. Ranked choice voting. They have to choose it at least three. And then those results are supposed to be integrated at each precinct. Which is why. It's taking them so long to to to count it. I also believe by the way That if the race had been close this would have been a really major issue but because it was such a blowout for Bernie and that was obvious from the first results coming in from the entrance polls. They didn't get into any trouble there and so now they're just taking their time counting all the results and double checking the pictures of the of of the the caucus site sheets. But but I have to tell you. I'm pretty sure that this is the last time we're GONNA see a caucus in Nevada and maybe anywhere. Yeah so could have been an Iowa. Two point zero if the race had been tighter. That doesn't bode. Well for caucuses as you mentioned I wanna ask you about what Sanders Chances..
"nevada" Discussed on Model Majority Podcast
"And Yeah it was again very good training and you know hanging out with the volunteers and listening to all the questions at the the volunteers bring up is always something that makes me smile and bring a brace good memories. I hope volunteer training. Like good ole time. Do you know what I mean. Yeah so what are the things that I know you did as well before caucus day itself which we will talk about is also doing some phone banking four the Democratic Party of Nevada. You tell us what those calls or even before. Because I think a lot of people probably know that you do phone banking for a candidate's campaign if you're volunteering either going out to knock on doors or you're going to do a phone calls to reach out to voters. I obviously talked a lot about the Iowa caucus knocking on doors experience. We've all had that experience before. But what is the halls or the phone banking party supposed to be for well? After my training they told me to go then go to the Nevada state Democratic Party headquarters and just just do whatever they say so. I walk in the door. It was a bustling campaign office. It smelled like a campaign office. The air conditioning was turned off and there were kids with laptops phones. I was like okay this now. I feel at home. But the calls that I was making as you say Kevin Unlike when you're working for a candidate's campaign you're recruiting volunteers to knock on doors and also to be precinct captains for the candidate that that means someone who's going to be representing the candidate at the caucus. There's something similar going on with the party. Because every single caucus location as I said needs that person who's going to function as the precinct chair this neutral arbiter of power on the caucus location and so the party has to recruit you know however many hundreds or thousands of people to actually go to each individual caucus on caucus day and preside over the caucus. So the calls that I was making where people who had signed up to volunteer to be what's called a temporary caucus chair so I was. I was given a virtual phone bank and I was. I was told to call throughout this list of volunteers. Who said that they were going to show up and caucus and not just caucus but to run their caucus and I had to call to verify if they were actually showing up and then making sure that they knew about the training and making sure they knew when what time what we're their caucus location was all that sort of stuff and and that was that was that was as fun as most reconfirmation calls. Go but it was kind of funny because there. There was a bit of a flake rate. That is people who said they were going to be precinct chairs who ended up not being precinct chairs and that that was that was interesting too and that happened literally the day before Caucus Day like the day before caucus there were people a few people. Hopefully that actually said Nah. I'm not going to actually run this caucus. Yeah so I went about my calls in my normal Jolly Way. Reconfirming people explaining. Oh yes. You're going to be there at nine. Am and they're like well. What what I can win. So and then people you know I'm going to go for the caucus then I'm like okay. We'll find make sure go out and caucus but yeah. There are plenty of people who were like. Oh no I didn't mean to actually do that so I'm not actually going to be there and so luckily it wasn't my job to replace those people. It was just to get the list of wire needed to be replaced. You know which which look so. I didn't have to actually find the volunteers that would then be plugged in in the stead of those people. But you know it is a little a little disconcerting when you think someone's a confirmed when someone is marked as a confirmed precinct chair and they're like oh no no no. Never Mind not you know. You're like okay but we've talked to you three days ago. I can see this. We talked to you three days ago and you said yes before but okay. You took the training but now you're not so you know. I guess that's the volunteering. That's just how it goes right but but they did have a contingency plan. It sounds like plug in volunteers. We had the capacity to become temporary precinct. Chairs when these supposed- temporary freezing chairs out. Yup I was actually very impressed. Because you know. It's not a very glamorous thing to volunteer for the State Party especially in a presidential year when there are candidates like Elizabeth Warren Mayor Buddha Judge Joe Biden out there that that might be inspiring to some people you know but and I. I was amazed that they were actually out of state. Volunteers especially from California. Who Like me drove out? I think that they might have gotten the the from from Harry Reid or something saying hey we want some more volunteers and a bunch of people just showed up at ten pm last night to the hall and we're all right volunteer. And in those cases they everybody had to sign a disclosure of neutral a neutrality agreements to make sure that they that they were not going to be for a particular candidate and then they were then trained as precinct chairs and and we're giving their assignments and where there were gaps from the Nevada. Volunteers that other states. Volunteers stepped up and presided over a lot of these caucus sites right. And just so folks. Don't have that Connex Harry. Reid was the senior senator from the state of the Vada as well as the Senate majority leader and he was instrumental in bringing Nevada as early voting states who the third spot in the entire calendar. So that is receiving the kind of prominence and attention that it's getting right now and we had a really good conversation with Phil Kim who used to run Nevada for Pork Cory Booker's campaign. I think two three episodes ago. So listen to that too. If you'RE GONNA WANNA Kinda like the history behind why Nevada caucus is the way it is. Today are actually believe it or not. Kevin Phil Kim was in my phone. Bank showed up. Why was you know they can call us? Why didn't get a chance to say? Hi but I was kind of way but it was pretty funny but yeah World Small World but he was also busy so he he was doing. I'm sure he had other things he was helping the party out with too. So you know. Got It okay. So let's fast forward to caucus day. Which is today as we're recording. But who knows when it will be when you guys actually start listening to this episode but just literally give us a talk? Like what time did you wake up? What did you do? What did you have to do the whole day? And what did you end up doing finishing before you went back to your hotel to record the dog with me? Well so because I have a background as a field organizer and doing higher level organizing stuff. They rather than place me inside of a precinct. They had me be what is called a hotline volunteer so adjacent to where the Party leadership sits during the caucus proceedings. There is a big room. Where there is you know about one hundred people who were just like me. Volunteers with WHO were campaign. Kids essentially with phones and laptops and the caucus is a big complicated process. So a lot of times there is confusion about rules or caucus math or heck. The Nevada Democratic Party did a lot of the the the the tallying of the Caucasus using ipads that were distributed to every single caucus locations. So if your IPAD was busted or if you know a senior citizen might not know how to type in things on an IPAD. There's any number of things that you might need a volunteer sitting on a hotline to talk to to talk somebody through in order to get through the whole caucus process so I was sitting in a big room of people while the caucus was going on receiving these in many times. Frantic calls from precinct. Chairs and site leads who were simultaneously receiving a caucus attendees and trying to sign everybody and registered voters doing all the party business and then also later on as they were doing their caucus alignments and then doing the math so the thing is that this is something that needs a little bit of training to understand the ways that you're going to be helping these people so my day to day started off. I woke up at five. Am and I was. I had to report to the Rio. The Rio Hotel in Las Vegas which is where the democratic boiler room ended up being the boiler and with the leadership sits but I was in their phone banking room essentially at the Rio Hotel at about six thirty in the morning to receive my hotline training and once we received that training training was from six thirty until eight and then they funneled us into the actual room where it was just rows and rows and rows of tables and with with with power strips and we plugged in our laptops and our phones. And we you know the precinct chairs were told to arrive at the caucus locations by seven thirty. Am So eight am. Our phones began to ring. And I was assigned to the tech hotline. Which means you know the the calls that were supposed to be followed my way where ones that we're having to do with explaining how to work the technology or so but it ends up being a hodgepodge of calls that you get because you know you gotta understand. Volunteers calling in so a technical problem to a volunteer could be caucus math. Even though there's a number you're supposed to press for the caucus math specialists or for the all the you know but so I answered a lot of different kinds of questions but the I was supposed to be getting questions about how to turn turn on. Your IPAD was really busy so interesting. And so so the cause these volunteer. Call receivers such as yourself. They were divided into different functions and categories. There was supposed to be a number for technical issues that goes to people like you and then for the caucus math issues goes to somebody else and then there might be some other topic. Basically it is categorized. Even though people didn't end up using things that way in the right and understanding that it kind of became a hodgepodge of people who was your in this corner. Why don't you just you know because it ends up? Being everybody who is in that room was was had some form of previous political experience or else that's kind of how they ended up in that room. You know so everybody could probably talk about everything so it was more like okay. You're close to that side of the room. Why don't you stay there and there are people who are like? I don't want to do math. And so they walked over to the to the logistics table or something but I was just like all right. I'm in the tech area so I'll just. I'll just stay here because this is where this is where I am and this is where I'm needed. I guess and you know I got another question for you. How many of these callers. Roughly speaking were doing this with you. Because I think one of the large issues that got exposed in Iowa caucus the barcode that was revealed later. Which is that. They were literally there. I think there were twelve people manning the phone hotline the same function that you were involved in which obviously wasn't enough and then people weren't even getting a calls returned and didn't even report the results and they just went home and when. Abed that mates sounded like you guys had more capacity than twelve people. I tell you I tell you you know. It's funny. There were twelve people doing tech calls and we were the smallest group so just to put that in perspective. You know a friend of the PODCAST Kunia Chris Napa. She was helping out with the with the caucus math side. And that was. I think the the math and logistics people had the most but there were I mean. There were more of the estimated between fifty and eighty. I think I don't know but I don't WanNa get the numbers wrong. The there were. It was a significant amount of experience. Phone bankers who were sitting in this room it was it was it was it was a ballroom half of a big ballroom. That was full of desks and it was pretty much all manned up so it was you know. More than fifty people were in that room. Ready to receive calls and it was. It was very highly organized we had. We had a a dial pad APP that would funnel the various kinds of calls to the various kinds of volunteers and at the same time. All the volunteers were trained up on the same sets of stuff so we even if we got the wrong call we could all sort of address things in the same way and there was also leadership. There you know there. There were several. There were several site leads and actually there was some pretty big wigs from DNC technology department. That I knew what I was an intern for the DNC for the DNC Data Department. Who are probably the ones who are on the back end? Doing all the designing of the of the Google Doc..

"So there's this air of ill-will between Sanders and the Union and it's in this atmosphere actual we're on our way to Vegas that the Union announces a press conference about its endorsement morning. Everybody welcome to the Culinary Union. I know we WANNA talk about the endorsement but before we do that so they come out and say yes. Healthcare is the big issue every human being to have a skit. We believe that by we'd be living choices to we believe that but instead of endorsing a candidate and the official announcement is we've gone in those are our goals while we doing. They endorsed their goals and their values. This every single political candidate right. Now we know vice-president buying for many years we know he's being presumably because they're worried about throwing their weight behind the wrong moderate especially in this environment when the racists still so uncertain but by endorsing healthcare as a goal they effectively have made an anti endorsement of anyone who threatens to take away that healthcare. And it's a pretty remarkable thing that there are anti endorsing sanders. Sanders is really popular among Latinos. He is seen as extremely pro union for his entire career and he's received endorsements from other unions in the state but for this union the Culinary Union. All that other stuff might be less important than the message. Fair hearing which is that a vote for sanders is a vote to eliminate the very thing. They've worked so hard to create so with all this for curious to see how members are reacting. So we're back at the Culinary Union Hall. Where early voting has started. Do you mind if we ask you really quickly. Who you're voting for to have to do anything and because Nevada has a caucus it's a little bit different My candidates are still buying Tom. And instead of picking one person people rank their preferences those month three candidate. And why are they your three candidates now? Joe Biden been with US ever since day. One and amy. She even support Union as well and Tom Sawyer about you can keep doing sean. So and is the insurance health insurance issue for you the most important issue Okola. We've got the best insurance in America. It take me and my family as we're around but failed the newborn. Yeah see we noticed that a lot of people are holding these pieces of paper. So what are you holding? This is the paper for the Union the Union and we realized that it's the same flier that had been texted and emailed and passed around in break rooms all over the Strip to see. I I see that the Union scorecard on the paper. You've highlighted Joe Biden. Judge Amy Klobuchar. Okay came Bernie Sanders. She wrote no underneath. Okay I'm putting up what they want. So it's clear that many people are voting with the union in mind and their healthcare times. You mind if I ask you. So then there's this sort of fascinating encounter. We have our I see. You're wearing a Bernie. Pin. So is it correct to assume that that's revoted for we'll know voting for Insurance on the. You know a couple of candidates who were gonNA keep our attorney going for Joe Barter Amy. Something and the other lady wearing Bernie Pin if you voted for some video because I'm a supporter for him. No but It was something totally different than but I do did come in with Bernie Sanders spin. I'm sorry can you explain that to me what it means to be a support but not vote for him well? This wasn't what we weren't voting for the president's on this one we were holding for What do you call for insurance to keep our insurance going though you are voting for who should be the presidential nominee no? That's not what I was wondering. What were you told? Don't WanNa do this any more? So this guy has clearly gotten the message. This is about health care so much so that he takes it literally and thinks that he's voting on his healthcare not choosing a presidential candidate in which case he would've voted for Bernie Sanders. Just curious to ask you about who you voted for Bernie Sanders all all the way. All the way why now we do meet Union members who chose Sanders but I like Bernie Sanders so much because he's never changed. Interestingly many of these people we speak with say that they haven't gotten a message from the Union telling them that vote for Sanders would take away. Their healthcare. I candidate is Bernice Bernie Burnett others have and they don't care or they like him for other reasons. One of the biggest thing to me as the burden is planning to to give the free school kate. My son is Nicole. Healthcare is just not their top issue. I'm I'm reported with the New York is can I ask you voted for number? One Bernie Bernie Sanders. Yeah so at some point. Clarinet is the Austin talking to this guy who looks to being in his sixties and it turns out. He's been in the Union for twenty nine years and then I make deal. Media Works at a casino called the Golden Nugget. Ed Utility Porter is Cling carpets Polish. The Mammal. Working in. The high place. Asked you this. Who did you vote partner? We answer yet Bernie Bernie Bernie. Yeah we love back. Yeah yeah is any. So we know that Bernie talking Medicare for all and replacing. No No I. Eighteen is a better system you know is for all math. What few people is for all people? Are you worried at all about your great? Medical care is okay. It's okay because you're not a minority. People get access a lot of people. Don't have boxes now. It's a cost money. He if we want to follow up tomorrow are you working so we say goodbye to make deal which was coming Nubia charity and we notice that this woman who had been sort of standing around hovering as we were talking with him follows him to his car listening to everything. I say they are listening. What are you she was so somebody union is here kind of mantra. And there's lots of press here sorts of kind of easy to understand why but they're kind of listening to the conversations and then they've they've followed after. The conversation ended seem to be following up with them. I presume asking what they've said..

Talking to predominantly Latino neighborhood here. He's Los Angeles relive. Met here in Vegas. Where a lot of people like him and they liked his policies There was lack of name recognition. I think in the beginning of the year. They didn't know he was never heard of him. Who's this Guy Indiana? He's young the gun guy is what I heard a lot in the beginning.

Who's Pete You would speak to the DAD and the house in Spanish? And would you say just introduce myself? I didn't get to know them Tell them about the candidate. I support and the reasons why Just invite him to invents so that they can hear what he has to say and they can come to their own conclusions. I'm never after trying to sell on anything always wanting to just share information And I feel like even the other day at the rally. There is complex question that was asked in Spanish and he just you know he puts his best foot forward trying to answer in Spanish and I was like. I don't know how I would've answered that question.

"In the meantime I connected with our Las Vegas Political Writer extraordinaire former deputy editor of Latino rebels Now he runs a great site called Enclave and also he has a podcast called. Remember the show. Hector Louis Alamo. He writes for Latino rebels. He's written some amazing pieces and I connected with Hector to talk about the caucus and the lead up to the caucus and the debates and other things he covered and he's out in Vegas on Boston. And here's a conversation that we had hector a man. Oh Hey I feel like a news organization because you've been out in out in Vegas area in Nevada right right. I'm trying to correct myself because my my Spanish always i. I'm trying to not mispronounce state even though it's flipping Spanish word. I wrote something on that. I went to in two thousand sixteen because trump with got in trouble for saying Nevada. It's Nevada not Nevada and people were like boo boo here Nevada. Now Mike No. It's actually Nevada is actually Nevada right. Well listen so you've been. I have so many things to talk to you about but you have been filing. I think the best way I can put. It are sort of essays. I don't even think they're columns. I think they're like observations. And you know you and I've always said like political writers like you're you're you know you're in the. I said it's like you can be like the Enduring Hunter S. Thompson. And you are so. I mean the way I see it is that you know. Especially like the Peop- the Latinos. Let's say let's keep it to Latinos deals that I know personally family and friends data. Don't they're not going to read straight out political columns and articles? They might read a funny weird story about election about the surrounding an election. You know they might read that but they're not gonna read. They don't follow news and they're and they're educated right there. They have college degrees but they don't for whatever reason follow Latino or they don't follow a news article so I'm just really writing for them. You know you've done a fantastic job. You know that I'm a big Fan. I mean I think you're one of my favorite writers and I say that to you all the time so listen. Let's talk about the state I mean. Let's just let's just be up front so that people know You are caucusing. You WanNa Save. Your caucusing for yeah. I'm calling for burning. I mean I don't think I've I've been I've been in the Bernie camps in two thousand sixteen right. Yeah right so so. Let's get that out of the way that doesn't mean that we can't have a conversation because you've been out you've written great pieces. I thought your piece was was just spectacular. And you're going to do another one and you've been filing and following the scene so before we go because I want to do is go through the each candidate and also the debate and then but I want to give me the general sense of this week in the state right now because there has been early voting. What's the buzz? What are people saying? Well you know. We had four days of early voting in my understanding that. That's the first time that that's happened. We've had early voting in in a caucus. I'm also hearing that. The caucus set up. His New Nevada used to have primaries and now we have a caucus caucus but a poll just came up with something. Like three and four Nevada's WANNA go back to the primary System but anyway this four day Early voting a primary caucus thing where you pick three candidates and then those those candidates are sent to the caucus. Which is on Saturday? February twenty-second what I'm hearing is that everywhere. Had Long lines hours long. I I met one woman at the CNN. Townhall on Tuesday at the Sahara Hotel and casino. She said that she went on Saturday. It was so long that she came back on Sunday There wasn't enough volunteers places so it it doesn't look good. It looks kind of IA ISH heading into Saturday. You know you just said it was Iowa Ish but what's the mood I mean? What are people like? You're talking to people you have. You have family of friends you you know. What are people saying in your circles? Or what what is the narrative being shared in the state about the top the front runners? I Know Sanders is definitely up there but yeah I mean I I think the latest polls show that Sanders said thirty five percent polling in Nevada and then second and third were like at Sixteen Fifteen. I think it was Biden and Buddha judge. I mean there's you know there's two camps and it's the same camps really that we're in two thousand sixteen you know do we. Do we go for a safe candidate. That can beat trump or there. We go for somebody who is is Promoting or pushing for the same kind of radical change that trump was pushing for in two thousand sixteen but obviously Bernie represents the diametrically opposed position to that. You know so there's people you know I mean people you know I i. I've a rich friend WHO's for Bloomberg. Says you know we need an asshole to beat an asshole You know there's people who like Buddha judge right. 'cause there's especially in in the suburbs around the Las Vegas Buddha jesuits very popular in the in the in the in the suburbs I filed that one dispatch when I met a British last spring of. That's right and it was. Yeah you did all these dispatches as well like I I I completely forgot about those I have. Yeah but you didn't want on Bernie you did one on on booth you did Kamala Harris. She's no longer in the race. Yeah I mean I went to that Bernie Rally what which is last. March and it was huge. You would have thought that their election was happening any day. It was huge a huge big field. A bunch of people were there was a concert. Talk to me about Latinos with with these candidates in general. I mean what's what's Are People excited as you know and thank you for? Thank you for hooking me up with that group make. The road dead ended up being last night yesterday. I was with them for much of the afternoon and I even stayed with them to watch the debate party because they they had a debate watching party at their community space and they had people. You know the whale all kinds of people from the from the community who brought their kids similar about the same more about that. Because like I I wanna know like what's the mood what did you. What did you find out? These guys are bad ass. Like they're you know they're they they've come out and endorsed. Bernie and every so everybody who goes for for Bernie. They had a debate watching party at their space chair. Setup they had Keitel's they had called earlier polio. They had gone. Shah's they had dump equal. They had everything you know. And they were playing this debate of Bingo. You know which had a thing on me but you know it had like immigration bilingual English ones. The other side was Spanish and they had self like you know the wall I if things get mentioned right and to debate during the break you know. They're they're organized would say you know. So what did you hear mentioned and so you here? You see these like fifty sixty seven year old Latinas Latinos. It's actually very dominated by Latinas. I should I should point out saying what they've heard any crapping whenever Bernie would clap back at boot Chad or or somebody. Yeah let me ask you this it was intergenerational it was it wasn't just a lot of young it was very you know you know. The cameras are very young. You Know High Schoolers Eighteen nineteen twenty two and You know very young but then the people who were there at the debate party were older. You know forty fifty sixty seventies So it was entered intergenerational Latinos Filipinos in there. There's white people there you know so let me ask you. What was you know? Because that's one of the narratives that you hear right. That old people don't vote for older people. Don't vote for Bernie Sanders and I'm not trying to like make this a Bernie Sanders. But did they know that is that is a narrative? Yeah so what did they tell you? Did anyone tell you why they they? They're choosing vote for him. Well actually I got to tell you know you learn a lot when you just talk to your Uber driver. I was talking to this uber driver that she had to be. Maybe fifty six Tina. You're having a newborn. We got to talking about Uber. We got talking about the election and she said she liked Bernie. You know because she's talking about how working ferber's sucked how they take most of her money. They don't give her they give her you know less than half of what what she could. She gets to see what they're what they charge and then they gave her like less. She says less than half of what they charge. And she's like you know I'm for I'm for Bernie because he's the only one who seems like he's going to make things fairer. You know mytalk too when I went canvassing with these two.

Candidates are already looking toward New Hampshire opportunity. So thank the people of the Hampshire for a great victory tonight. Moderate candidates people to judge and Senator Amy closure trailed sanders to random breaking news the Democratic presidential race where a national poll out this morning shows the former New York mayor is now in second place with nineteen percent support behind Bernie Sanders Bloomberg whose rise at the polls field by more than three hundred million dollars. An AD spending mayor Bloomberg has not appeared on a single debate stage or a single ballot. But that will change tonight. It's Alex Burns in Las Vegas where Wednesday nights democratic debate was held ahead of the Nevada caucus this weekend from NBC News. The Democratic presidential debate live from Las Vegas Nevada. This was a debate. We were all really waiting for the first time. Mayor Bloomberg has appeared on the stage and really is the first time he has engaged with other Democratic candidates at all since entering the race polls released over the last few days have shown Bloomberg overtaking Joe Biden Nationally. As the moderate runner up to Bernie Sanders the front runner. Thanks to hundreds of millions of dollars that Bloomberg has poured into advertising but for most Americans. This was the first time that they have really been introduced to the man himself so going in we knew that all the other candidates. We're going to try to make that a rough introduction to scuff up the glossy image of himself the Bloomberg puts in TV ads. And right away they did. I think we need something different Than Donald. Trump. I don't think you look at Donald Trump and say we need someone richer in the White House are not going to win if we have a nominee who has a history of hiding his tax returns of harassing women and Supporting Racist Policies like redlining and stop and Frisk. Stop and Frisk. Stop and Frisk which went after African American and Latino people in an outrageous way throwing folk close to five million young black men up against the wall. That is not a way. You're gonNA grow voter turnout. They of course after and Frisk is invasive policing policy as mayor of New York Mayor Bloomberg at the beginning of this debate. You took some incoming fire on this. Next topic's let's get into it at two thousand fifteen. This is how you described your policing policy as mayor quote. We put all the cops in the minority neighborhoods. And you explain. That is because that's where all the crime is and early on NBC moderator. Lester Holt asked to address it. You went on to say the way you should get the guns out of the kids hands as the throw them against the wall and I apologize for that policy that what does that kind of language say about how you view people of Color or people in minority neighborhoods. Well if I go back and look at my time in office the one thing that I'm really worried about embarrassed about was how it turned out with stop and Frisk and we started. We adopted a policy which had been in place the policy that all police departments use of stop and Frisk. What happened however was it. Got Out of control from the beginning. He struggled with his responses. We have to keep the lid on crime but we cannot go out and stop people who you know. This was the number one question that Bloomberg would have known was coming more than any other policy issue. This is the one his campaign as worried about from the start of the race. But I've SAT. I've apologized. I've asked for forgiveness but the Bloomberg is not a man known for his political agility. His comfort expressing contrition or for his skin and it showed albums and if we took off everybody that was wrong. On this off this panel everybody. That was wrong on criminal justice at some time in the careers. That'd be nobody else up here and the attacks were unrelenting up until this point Elizabeth. Warren has mostly avoided direct confrontation in debates with other candidates. She's been calling herself the unity candidate but she took a totally different approach. A far more aggressive approach and Mike Bloomberg was her favorite target. I like to talk about who were running against. She landed some of the most stinging blows in the debate drawing a connection between Bloomberg and public enemy number one for the Democrats a billionaire who calls women fat broads and horseface lesbians and I'm not talking about Donald Trump. I'm talking about mayor. Bloomberg Democrats are perhaps the most contentious exchange of the night and the toughest one for Bloomberg was a lengthy back and forth between him and both and Joe Biden about a number of women who have signed nondisclosure agreements with Bloomberg and his company. He has gotten some number of women. Dozens who knows to sign nondisclosure agreements. Both for sexual harassment and for gender discrimination in the workplace. So Mr Are you willing to release all of those women from those nondisclosure agreements? So we can hear their side of the story. We have a very few nondisclosure agreements. How many Finnish comedies? None of them accused me of doing anything of than maybe they didn't like joke. I told and let me just let me. Be Agreements between two parties. That wanted to keep it quiet. And that's up to them. They signed those agreements. And we'll live with Warren challenged him over and over to release those women from the NBA's and let them speak openly about their experiences when you say they signed them and they wanted them if they wish now to speak out and tell their side of the story about what it is they alleged. That's now okay with you. You're releasing them on television tonight. Senator said he would not do some of the company and somebody else in this the man or woman or could be more than that. They decided when they made an agreement. They wanted to keep it quiet for everybody's interest coming to sign the agreements. And that's what we're going to let. The question is are the Germans but the latest is what these attacks reflect about the state of the Democratic race and the urgency that the candidates are feeling in this moment Bernie Sanders. Lead is looking increasingly. Strong heading into the Nevada caucuses and as we talked about many times part of that has to do with the fact that the more moderate candidates dividing the votes amongst themselves making it harder for any one of them to emerge as a clear alternative to sanders now incomes Michael Bloomberg with all his money and his power and name recognition but so far he has done more to slow down fell moderates than to thwart Bernie Sanders. Senator winning when you say disown these attacks and you didn't personally direct them. I believe you both got ask yourself. Why did this pattern arise? Why is it especially the case among your supply? Don't think this is actually the case. That's just not true. Look people that Mandela wasn't just Bloomberg on the defensive. The other Democrats also had to take on Sanders country we have the best socialists in the country happens to be a millionaire with three houses. What I miss. Well you'll still. I work in Washington housewives. The first problem live in Burlington House to take on each other's ourselves. Are you trying to say that I'm down or you mocking me? Hearbeat trivial was more open. Hostility more personal bitterness in this two hour debate than in perhaps all the other debates combined. And that's because the stakes for the candidates are higher now and for many of them really for almost all of them. Time may be close to running out. So that's the latest.

"Threatening our our livelihood here in America and it's a matter of life and death so what about his wealth? I mean one of the monster. People are going after Bloomberg because he's a billionaire but star is a lot of money into the what's the difference between him and Bloomberg or human than any other candidate. Because I mean there's a huge difference I mean I don't even think that's that's why they're they both had money. Yeah they have money the way they got. Their money is completely different than the way they've so we didn't they treated the community is completely different. Common Somebody who leads to stamping was values and about fifty things that are wrong. Not necessarily doing something because they don't want to get tax so that's the reason you know that that. Bloomberg is running because he doesn't want somebody to take like stranglehold on his wealth. And you know to be able to pay what he's to pay in order to get a lot of tax breaks and Tommy. The ones calling that out commas a real threat to the democratic candidates he's a real threat to trump and he's a real threat to Bloomberg because Tom is Amanda Values and everything like I said once people when people find out who he is. It's not even a conversation of losing much. It's about Oh my God. I wish I knew soon. Right and And so so that's the most important part that I WANNA highlight is like. There is a comparison beyond belief You Know Thompson Anybody Anything Thomas. Somebody who has put his money where he needs to put his money him and his wife are part of the giving pledge to give half of the fortune away while their lives so Last question you know a couple of days and all the Like I said we talked about the debate. And how he's not on phase. So what's the final push for you guys? And what is you know? What is success for on Star in Nevada on Saturday? I mean what? What would you success for us? As as hoping that at the process of the collection here in the state is is has parents on it because when it is then we will be convicted. Doria's and I don't think recovery is measured by the way of getting first place like if only you know elderly and the voice of those who voted for us. I think definitely being in place in the top top tier candidates. I think is is is a victory here I think like I said hoping that the communities that are that need to be represented the need to be elevated the black and Brown community. Ap I mean the working class here in Nevada that both our folks are voting for Tom. I definitely hope. And it'll be a victory when those folks come out of the voting process and voting early votes and feeling like your voice matters I think that's because Tom someone who has invested in registering folks slow. You know definitely pushing for for voting rights and and voting access so so that is really what victory in a positive agree looks as Dante stretch or out there making calls. Knocking doors organizing. Van Me at We have I mean I'm a big. I'm a big love Tacos and you know parties at home you know.

"To really flex its muscle and we sit in the middle of Arizona and California and certainly Arizona is changing is still largely a conservative state while California's like. The on it's up on the opposite end of its spectrum and so Nevada still forming its political identity, which means that candidates can come here and really tested a message on an electorate and get an idea whether or not. It will have national traction and I'm certainly biased I really do believe the road to the white. House runs through the LAS, Vegas Strip and given that the large labor percentage of the states and the proximity to California I imagine there's a lot of things that are really unique to organizing in Nevada that are specific to the state. What are some of those things? Definitely we for example, we'll have caucus sites in major casinos on the LAS. Vegas Strip. Nowhere. Else for that will happen in the country and it's because so many people work in those casinos in deserve the opportunity to caucus our caucus will have. Some really rural sites and we'll. have. Caucus. That have early voting in grocery stores. We have one of the most accessible voting systems in the country and all of that, and it's pretty neat Nevada. Can you actually explain exactly how that works if there's a caucus and early vote yeah. It'll be the first time. We do an early vote with the caucus and the intention is to get more people involved in the caucus process generally, but also to avoid some of the. Long lines that we saw in two thousand sixteen we want to make sure that people have access to the caucus stem if they can't wait in line for three hours to get into Gaza and that's not an accessible system so people will be able to early caucus enlarged to the way that they can early vote. They'll be more ways to be counted and they'll be doing this in grocery stores in casinos casinos on the Strip is really yes the picture I'm loving. Yes there will be caucus sites. At four different casinos on the Las Vegas Strip in banquet room so that employees can make sure that they go down and make their voices heard in the electoral process does mean that the timing is different on election day slash caucus day in Nevada, will we know the results at different times than we would in another state? I'm not sure how the party's GonNa Handle. The early caucus results in whether they'll count everything on. Caucus J. or if they're gonNA have pre counted everything else and then have it prepared for the caucus. I suspect that they will wait to count everything at once but I'm not sure traditionally during the General Election Nevada is the closest swing state to California. So gets a lot of volunteers come in from California but California's primary. This time is right after the Nevada caucus. How do you think that's going to impact your caucus day? Yeah. It'll be so interesting because historically at least since I've been here. going on ten years in Las Vegas California volunteers have come in busloads to do weekend canvassing to help campaigns with volunteer work. That's necessary. Whatever's wherever there have been holes to fill or gravy to be added to the mix Dave really essential and I don't see that happening this time around unless something dramatically changes in the Democratic primary and we go down to one candidate, and so it may create a shortage of necessary bodies. It may change the way that Nevada and step up and volunteer. I'm not sure but. Is Primary Two weeks after our caucus and they too have early voting. So they're going to be tied up with their own primary elections and. Interesting to see how candidates treat that and whether they try to bind a Nevada California strategy to be successful in both states, we'll see you're an experienced organizer in the state. To campaigns traditionally organize themselves where there specific roles they used for out of state slash California volunteers that would now have to be filled by Nevada. The way it works is out of state folks will come in and be part of blitzes. So if we know that we're GONNA have a busload of two hundred volunteers from California, then we'll plan a canvas. So going door to door in an area that maybe we haven't been able to spend as much time in, and now we're going to be able to saturate or will take a really strategic area that matches the population of volunteers coming in. So it was an all Latino of volunteer bus coming in from California we. Plan, a Latino Canvas. What we'll see is that campaigns are gonNA have to invest a lot more in filling that need with Nevada ins and making sure that they get as many Nevada volunteer as possible and it's certainly doable. There's enough interest in attention and folks who want to be heart of the political process in Nevada. It'll just be a question of whether or not campaigns have the bandwidth to get them organized time. That's interesting. So it seems like even if there are a lot of Nevada's that want to be involved. Voting is paramount for them in that time period, and if they're not used to having that kind of like muscle memory of volunteering before every election, it could be hard to fill those gaps without the Californians coming in. Yeah. So campaigns may have to think strategically about not being able to have that extra bump at the end definitely and figuring out how. To. Build for that, and it's I think why we saw so many states. So many campaigns getting started really early in the state and really trying to build out their infrastructure. Is it Nevada or Nevada? How do you say the name of the State Nevada always Nevada always about how much does it annoy people in the state to hear them say Nevada so An original Nevada and I was born and raised in Miami Florida and when I first moved here, I would say Nevada because if you speak Spanish like I do it sounds similar and I was corrected. So quickly like people will call you out in meetings to correct you to say Nevada, and now I can't hear it. So if someone says it wrong, it's like hearing nails across a chalkboard kind of thing. So it's it's a big thing too big thing here yet people will literally call you out in meetings a couple of years. Ago My boss was a native Spanish speaker. We had all this great polling on the state and on issues, and so she went and she briefed the hundred most important progressive leaders in the state and she said Nevada and in the middle of the meeting, the person who had organized the meeting called her out on it and she got so frazzled. She basically couldn't finish. She was so frazzled by it, and then three weeks later veep ran episode with the exact same plot line and only confirms that our lives are veep our lives are. I think it's funny because I have a running joke with a friend of mine that are political lives oscillate between veep and West Wing and on good days Brown West Wing on most days ron veep but it really runs the that's the spectrum that we. Know and occasionally now for in impeachment then we're in house of cards, right? Every day it's beep. Yeah. Actually thank you so much for joining us. It's been a.

"Welcome back to your primary playlist I'm your host. Emily. Tisch sussman. For those joining us for the first time. This podcast is your definitive guide to the twenty twenty presidential primary explained by the women who know it best. Last season, we focus on the biggest issues facing the Democratic candidates. This season or taking a look at how those issues are playing out on the ground now that people are actually voting. Today, we're heading to Nevada the third in line for the nominating process for the Democratic presidential nominee. The Democratic presidential candidates are setting their sights on Nevada Nevada's racial diversity and strong union presence. We'll play a critical role in how the nation's third contests plays out. The battle born state a load of Outta. Awesome East is raising concerns about the first in the West Caucus and it's a caucus coming up in Nevada guess got people worried it's time to retire the presidential. Caucus think most Democrats are becoming realized that caucuses are terrible. It is a very undemocratic way of picking a nominee following what happened in Iowa Nevada is hoping for a smoother run Nevada caucus says they will not use the same APP used by the Iowa Caucus. Good News. Yeah. That's right. You'RE GONNA go with tinder. The early caucus puts a lot of attention on this western state. The Reno Gazette Journal proclaimed Nevada is quote the best early predictor of a candidate's chances and other states given. It's diversity compared to some of the other early states and candidates are taking notice immediately after who Leeann Castro dropped out of the race and endorsed Elizabeth Warren her team sent him right back to Nevada to campaign for her on the ground in the two. Thousand Sixteen Democratic Primary Clinton won big in Nevada a key win for her after a narrow win in Iowa and a defeat in. New Hampshire. It was in Nevada that Clinton made news for comforting a young girl who feared her parents would be deported and many credited her win to her ability to draw in Latin X and African American voters from the most diverse parts of the state winning the support of the diverse electorate in Nevada will once again be crucial in twenty but diversity in the state wasn't the only story from two thousand sixteen even after the votes were tallied individuals from both Clinton and Sanders campaigns accused the county. and State party conventions of misconduct over the delicate allocation process. This has led Nevada to make changes to its caucus system, and while some applaud the changes others warn that it adds unnecessary complexity to an already complicated system. So will the new caucus rules affect the outcome which candidates resonating with Latin next and African American voters and what are the issues that Nevada's care most about in this primary to help us answer these questions and more were thrilled to be joined by Lieutenant Governor Kate Marshall. Kate Marshall was sworn in as Nevada's thirty fifth Lieutenant Governor on. Seventh. Twenty Nineteen Previously she served as Nevada state treasurer and senior Deputy Attorney General Kate received her bachelor's and law degree from the University of California Berkeley. She resides in Reno Nevada with her husband. Montana governor. Thank, you very happy to be on your show. We're so excited to have you and we'd just love to know a little bit about you. Why did you decide to run for office like most women it? It didn't occur to meet him run for office. I. Think most women need to be asked and I was honored might mentor Frankie Del Papa asked considered running. She was the first Attorney General Woman Attorney General in Nevada. And in a small statelet like Nevada, you can. You can make a difference you can reach out in and touch people's lives The whole idea that all politics is local is, is true I think you have to get down to. What are people talking about in their neighborhoods? In. Nevada has a huge issue. Our housing prices have really gone up and we also have workforce issues have Unemployment has gone down but that doesn't mean get the job at a decent pay and that doesn't mean if your business you can hire the person you dire. So I think those issues resonate across the country in Europe about those issues again. Do you think there are particular issues that Nevada ends are asking presidential candidates about that by be differing than other states and particularly other early states definitely going to be asking the Yucca Mountain Nevada doesn't believe it's a company ground and I see we were It would be an understatement to save. We were taken aback by the fact that nuclear waste was sent to Nevada without our consent or knowledge as well. I think the address I also think sanctum were very aware climate change I live in Reno or ten miles from the border to California and we're watching California burr. And so I think you're going to have people asking about. what is the future look like and what are we doing about it? What are we do about water haven't enough water what are we doing about making sure that we don't have fires at burn whole communities to the ground in Nevada you're gonNA get a a more nuanced view of. Guns in the wove guns. we had a terrible tragedy. In Las Vegas Year October first rate many d'avanzo gums. Owning a gun is responsibility. And they recognized that responsibility. So therefore end up stocks. That's okay with them. Background checks of that responsibility for being a gun owner and part of the responsibility for being a part of your community there. So you can have a slightly more nuanced conversation when it comes to. The. Convenience. Communities do you think that unfortunately having the shooting in your state really did change people's views I mean it's a this is such an unfortunate thing to say, but it's not unlike there haven't like there haven't been. Horrible shootings around the country but was there something about it being in their state that really moved people's view on the issue? Yes I. think that it didn't hit a particular demographic. Lots of different people are at that concert. In I think what what I've seen. In a goalie is. It affected MOMS. Children didn't want to go to school had to do gun. Active shooter drills at school in Moscow like it. At mom spotlight, this is gone too far. You had mentioned the economy and different aspects of the job market both employer side and employee side. Do you think there are particular policies that Nevada are looking to from presidential candidates? One of the things that we know about Nevada's that we were hit the worst.
