"new jersey republican party" Discussed on The Takeaway

"Takeaway and it is good to have you with us on our politics show now. It went down in new jersey this week on tuesday night. Democratic incumbent governor phil murphy debated republican challenger. Jack shit rally in the panel debate of the new jersey gubernatorial race. There are only two candidates running for office but three opponents showed up at the debate. Murphy should ereli and the crowd we thank you. I like to believe that y'all out there as you're listening to the takeaway are either cheering or booing with the same kind of jersey level enthusiasm and i tell you. It's pretty wild outside the debate hall to former new jersey. Governor republican christine. Todd whitman is among the leaders of a new movement to purge trump loyalist and reinvigorate mainline conservativism within the republican party. There called the renew america movements. We need regular americans to step forward and we're calling only now this week. The republicans of the renew america movement they endorsed to new jersey democrats and a philadelphia democrat in those bids for state legislative seats and while new jersey republicans are fighting for the soul of their party. Virginia democrats seem to be sitting on the sidelines of their gubernatorial contest in northern virginia democratic stronghold. Possible problems for the former governor early voting had already begun in the commonwealth. And the numbers. In virginia's bluest counties are way down compared to 2017. Fairfax arlington and alexandria sent. Just six of virginia's early votes. So far that's a huge drop. From the last governor's race when the blue bastion ultimately delivered a full third of virginia's early votes. Okay down in the peach. State georgia's election battle is less about candidates and campaigns and more about fairness and fraud on wednesday. A judge in the state dismissed the final lawsuit from the twenty twenty election litigation. He ruled that the plaintiffs have no standing to sue. The fulton county election board. But the decision comes on the heels of to fulton county election workers being fired for shredding registeration forms. So i'm thinking it's probably pretty safe to assume that confidence in the state's electoral system is less than robust the twenty twenty two midterms approach. There's a lot of state politics shaping up around the country and that's where we begin. Today's politics roundtable with jessica taylor. The senate and governor's editor for the cook. Political report with amy walter and zach montelera state politics reporter at politico. Haven't hi there or i want to begin with you. Jessica were the takeaways from the governor's debate in new jersey this week. I think that there's passion that people on both sides and new jersey certainly has a reputation for kind of being a rough and tumble so. I wasn't really surprised to covert issues. Have driven lot of people to become more engaged. And you have governor so murphy. There that has put on some pretty strict restrictions and a misdemeanor sort of test of whether voters approve of those. We do see they have that foles. You know he's mandated masks in schools More controversial step. He took recently was actually mandating kids over to if they are in daycare certain things that they now have to wear mass. That's not in push back up. Upsetting pushback from chile rally But of course new jersey was at the height of the pandemic to begin with but you know cases have been more under control than even some southern less populated states that they've had to deal with but I see covert is a major issue Happening here and i think you saw that reflected in perhaps the debate limit come down here to us and ask What you make of this renew. America movement and specifically that. It's lead in part by christine. Todd whitman the first woman to serve as governor of the state of new jersey and sort of a republican of different era. But clearly here. Making bipartisan effort. To actually bring different kinds of folks into the system. And you know i am. Broadly relatively skeptical of the you know anti-trump wing of the republican party We've seen displayed kind of over and over and over again However they do within the republican party at now you know how many of these voters who were soft republicans in decades past nowadays identifies democrats identify as independence who are voting democratic in the suburban areas. That we've heard so much about over the last four years right like so. What is the crowd that these groups are kind of reaching for that. That's the big question right. Did most of those people who you know identify as a christine todd whitman republican or they already democrats have already jumped over to the other side. They staying there I tend to believe that at this point in the suburban shifts are. We've we've seen the shift in the suburbs of the last four years of the last decade. Whatever you wanna call it And these groups with people who former republican elected officials are really the folks without a helmet this point and yet the that sort of that dynamic of of a republican party like the new jersey republican party which to be clear it's quite different than republican parties and other parts of the country that dynamic that there was booming and cheering and the kind of almost trump rally like atmosphere at that new jersey gubernatorial debate. Fact does that. Tell you something about You know the fact that there is still this this acrimony. Despite the fact that you've got these like i guess we're gonna call them politically homeless republicans in the state. Yeah told me. I grew up on the right side of the hudson river. I'm a native new yorker so gripe from new york and new jersey now but like i think that's you know i don't call it par for the course for tristate area politics right. But you know we new yorkers new jersey and certainly a little bit we're willing to share their opinions about About what they think of their politicians there was that ad from governor murphy. And i think it was only online this week Just kind of poking fun hour his opponent when he was i think it was city council when he held a local office tried to ban swearing right and only only in the tri-state area. Only in new york on the new jersey is probably a bad thing. I yeah. I'm pretty sure it's already banned down here in north carolina i live. Everyone's very polite. Like oh my goodness is about as bad as it gets. Yeah so you know. I think it's just a different kind of atmosphere that you know that. Us new yorkers new jersey folks in the area carrier themselves just a little bit differently. I don't. I don't know if that's any sign of increased equity in the state or not. I think acrimony is already built in some. you know we've just been talking about the ways that republicans in new jersey might be different but it's also true. The democrats are a bit different. They're an impart because there is that long tradition in the tri-state area around on the strength of policing firefighters first responders and i'm wondering if murphy's positions on civilian review boards and also some you know additional sort of tightening around police. Local police departments might actually alienate some of the potential democratic voters. Who could support murphy. That's the big question with noxious governor murphy but a lot of democrats as the party. Realign and shift you know. How do you hold onto sometimes thought of as blue collar jobs. I don't necessarily know that in new york area police. Firefighter has much in common with somebody who works a elsewhere blue collar. how. How do you hold onto the blue collar jobs while also increasingly suburban tilt of these parties new jersey very famously suburbs to new york city on edge. It's striking that balance between can reach these voters that democrats have traditionally talked to you know blue collar union workers at while you know pushing social Social messages that.

"Opportunity to meet the moment with his inaugural address. All Americans should be praying that he delivered the speech of his life and it will need to be given the deeply divided nation he will be facing. He will need to have an eye on the disaster of last week. The lost lives in the deep disgrace brought upon the nation. But he will also need to summon Americans to return to the politics of the post war years when bipartisan debate turned on how best to defend the country so that all could enjoy its blessings. Moderation is not easy to argue for after the savage attack on the capital by the mob, But it is moderation that we need now partisan dangers and sweeping combination will not help the new president achieve what is needed. Appeals to reason and civility could help him. In Lincoln's words, bind up the nation's wounds and healing is what the nation need. I'm you hear it. Public policy dock pepper dine dot et you You're listening to Kevin McCullough radio coming to you live from the Conners and Sullivan broadcast studio. Letter ready confusion, amplifying truth and pursuing clarity. It's Kevin McCullough radio. All right, very glad to have you with us. Very busy Friday. Still to come. Governor Mike Huckabee joins us to talk a little bit about his reaction to the impeachment and what's going on in D. C right now as we prepare to hand over the reins to a different administration. Next Wednesday and kind of the swamp Penis that still seems to pervade Washington at all times. It's so discouraging, but that's not the only place that swamping this is seen just outside of my studios in Manhattan across the river. Is the great state of New Jersey. The garden state. Lots of wonderful listeners to the show reside there, and I'm very concerned about what is happening on the ground there, and the man who would like to replace Current governor, Phil Murphy, who has I think more than had his hands full on everything from the pandemic to the general state of Malays in his state. Jack generally is that challenger and he wants to make you know the taxpayers of New Jersey. You feel like they've got a fighter fighting for them. And threatened Jack. It's good to have you on the show. Thanks for being here. Kevin. Thank you for having me to your time together here and load all your listeners. Yeah, talk to me about why you decided that It's it's time to run. Well, I ran for governor four years ago. Kevin. I I lost that ran a close second, the Republican primary. I did that after six years in purgatory, otherwise known as the New Jersey General Assembly. And during those six years I saw how inefficient Trenton could be under a Democratic majority that's ruled Trenton for more than two decades on DSA, so I believe the state is broken. We know we have the worst property tax the nation. We have the worst business climate, the nation. We have the second worst public pension system in the nation. And the way we do flowing, um, housing, affordable housing. New Jersey is just nuts. It's very different from the other 49 states and those four crises is what ravages the middle class in New Jersey. It's very hard to get ahead in New Jersey were last in job growth. Last in wage growth last in fiscal health. It's because the Democratic majority and Phil Murphy have failed to address the those four crises and that's all pre pandemic. It's only gotten worse because of his handling of the pandemic. Well and for people that have been watching the national elections, you know, you only have to point to New Jersey and New York and say, uh, monolithic rule from one party does not seem to be doing very much for the people in those states. And I'm curious your thoughts on why you think I'm a Napo zing voice in the In the in the mix between legislature and executive makes a difference. Well, the first Kevin you touch upon a point. I mean democracy works best when when? When Both parties are vibrant, I don't consider the New Jersey Republican Party vibrant right now. We need to, I think, Stop being a cult of personality and get back to our grass roots and proposing to the people, New Jersey our ideas and our solutions. One of things that always attracted me. The Republican Party, the party of Lincoln as a young Adult was we were the party of ideas, and I think we we need to get back to that. But listen, I'm excited about 2021, because not only will the people in New Jersey be voting on the governorship. I'll be voting on all 120 seats in the state Legislature. That's 40 centers and 80 assembly people, and I believe there's an opportunity because of Murphy's handling of things here in New Jersey, and particularly pandemic, there's an opportunity for the first time in more than two decades. The Republican majority and I shouldn't be running for governor is the Republican nominee. Unless I truly believe that the coattails to produce that talk to me about because you come from the private sector before your time in the assembly, talk to me about how important reviving small business in the garden status Well, I'm an embassy P a Kevin and a two time very successful small business owner. I know how important Main Street is the New Jersey's small business economy. It's truly the backbone. We're no longer a state. Unfortunately, although I try to revive that were ah Fortune 500 companies placed their headquarters but our our small business Conny mom and pop shops Main Street. Need to be vibrant and again as an embassy P A. I know the changes that need to be made the tax code to kind of stimulate that here in New Jersey. So my very very much my administration. We focused acutely on making New Jersey morbidity is friendly. In the hope that we see a great deal more on Trevor entrepreneurship and that Main street thrives in New Jersey. We're not seeing that under the Murphy administration, and here in the pandemic small businesses three out of 10 of shut their doors forever and 300,000, plus people work in hospitality. Specifically restaurants, and he's decimating that industry as well. Well, you know, it's interesting about them. I'm glad you brought that up because you know, everybody in the media market around New York pays a lot of attention to the fact that Andrew Cuomo handled Senior care facilities very poorly in his handling of the pandemic, But second and it was not by very much Tonto Cuomo in the failure in their senior care facilities was Phil Murphy, and I'm just I think a lot of people I think he's avoided. A lot of, you know, exposure on some of this stuff because of Cuomo.

"Yesterday's impeachment drama. Governor. Murphy gave his state of the state address on Tuesday and used his speech in part to tout New Jersey's response to the Corona virus pandemic and his record on jobs and we'd kicking off his re election campaign. Yes, Governor Murphy is up for re election this year. Beginning with a primary in June. In an intriguing development on the Republican side this week, the New Jersey Republican Party chairman Doug Steinhardt, a storm supporter of President Trump, who was going to run for governor abruptly dropped out of that race. As we look ahead to the primaries in June and the general election in November and hear what else we should know. From the state of the state. I'm joined now by Nancy Solomon, managing editor for New Jersey public radio and WN Marcy's New Jersey desk. Hey, Nancy. Always great to have you. Thanks, Brian. Good morning. Let's start on the GOP side. Who is Doug Steinhardt for people who don't know. And why did he drop out of the race? He is a lobbyist, and he was the chair until recently of the state Republican Party. Um, and he had announced his bid for the primary for the Republican primary for governor and double down on his support of Donald Trump. Um Andre accused the other main rival Jack should really a former assemblyman who would run in the primary last time around and had lost the GOP primary, too. Him. Giordano. Um Steinhardt, head sort of double down on with his support of Trump and it also said, called out generally, for kind of pretending to The trumpets but is trying to play it play both sides and then abruptly this week. Steinhardt pulled out of the race, right, you know, following what had happened in Washington, saying that he had a professional. Opportunity that he needed to take care of professional opportunity, and maybe he wants to spend more time with his family. Another person who won't be entering the race. And it's interesting how the dynamics around Donald Trump are now affecting state politics in New Jersey, and another one who won't be entering the race is Republican Assemblyman in minority leader John Bram. Nick. Who you asked if he'd run, and he responded this way. No, no, I'm not gonna run. I think it's possible that if this scenario had been the latter part of last year and but as I traveled to the state to support for The trump Wing of the Republican Party was way too strong for me overcome, and that's why you saw people like Jack should really go to the Trump rally. And and he saw so much pro Trump is, um Because the base of the party still supported Trump. Now, whether that's changed in that I haven't told it. And it's too late right now for me to re enter the race. So let's transition out to Governor Murphy and kind of in this context. With a lot of Republicans kind of shy about running to face him, despite frustrations that some progressives have expressed about Governor Murphy You say in your reporting that his state of the state address seemed to be a wish list of progressive causes explain. It was. It was astounding. Really. He ticked through 27. I counted and I might have missed a few 27 different accomplishments and they were all You know, they were just It was a love letter to progressives. And the reason why I found that surprising is this that he had been showing signs over the last few months of starting to run to the center as Statewide candidates often do for election purposes. And so he had made some deals with the centrist and machine backed leaders of the Democratic Party in the Legislature on About Fracked gas terminal on the Delaware River to take gas That's fracked in Pennsylvania on ballot will ballot Reforming, hasn't said anything about that sort of an issue that's still kind of bubbling under the surface, But so progressives had been angered. And then he comes out with this speech. That is just I mean, it had Everything in it. It had you know everything He's done, which you know it fair. You know, it's right to say he has been a progressive governor, and he has actually gotten a lot done. This nervous We can take your calls for Nancy Solomon on New Jersey Public radio managing editor. How about the state of the state? According to you, Garden Staters. Or house Governor Murphy doing for you as he starts to run for reelection Garden Staters 646435 70 to 86 46. 435 70 to 80 or tweet at Brian Lehrer. Let's stay on that question of voting. For a second and ballot reform will voting look any different this year than it did last year. Other years in the past, New Jersey was one of those states. That sent actual ballots to every registered voter so controversial to President Trump, but also You know, to be fair brand new to New Jersey. So did it work And are they going to make this permanent? Yeah. I mean, the experiment did work. There was the highest turnout numbers ever. Um and you know when the results came in and a pretty decent amount of time, so It did work. I think what Murphy has said he wants to do is post pandemic. He wants to bring back in person voting. Um and have it be an option to either vote by mail, so everyone gets a ballot or which is you know, this is the distinction between absentee voting where you request a ballot. So this is where every single voter Gets a ballot in the mail, and you can choose whether to mail it in or not on Ben. He said in his state of the state that he wants to move towards early voting, which, of course, New Yorkers are very familiar with S O. I think you know what he's what he wants to do is move towards early voting, which is obviously can be done by mail but also in person. Election day voting by machine and, you know, universal vote by mail where everybody gets a ballot. Um and and so that's where he's going. It's an expensive proposition because The voter polls need to be digitized and they need an Elektronik system so that when someone goes to the polls, it can be quickly identified as a person who's already voted by mail. So that's what held the state back from doing it this year, but they say they want to invest in that technology. Is Governor Murphy going to get primary So far, there's been no hint of it. And, you know, I wondered after he had, really, you know, frustrated so both progressives and environmentalists with some ofhis recent decisions, but So far, there's been really nobody has emerged and listen. He's got 60% approval ratings, and Patrick Murray of the Monmouth Polling Institute said. You know if that holds and we don't know that it will. But if that holds, he's reelected easily. You don't You don't go down when you have 60% approval ratings, But the big question is, you know if we get to a point at the end of the summer, and as the election campaign really picks up in September if we get to a point where The virus is in the review mirror on Ben, but the economy In the dumps, and we have 10% unemployment, which is what we have now, you know, then that's a problem for Murphy. And so I don't think we'll see a primary challenge, but he could be facing a tough Reelection fight against a Republican, if if that situation occurs where we're no longer afraid of Cove it But we're still struggling with the after effects with the economy. Let's not forget On core design was facing 10% unemployment when he ran against when he ran for reelection, and Chris Christie beat him on. He wasn't supposed to lose at the beginning of that race. Jon Corzine. Um, so we talked earlier about the Republicans who were not going to run against Murphy, who is trying to run against Murphy..

"I think that we should spell it out specifically in our state constitution. The pandemic, changed everything in this race and and look now they're talking about the fall before there's herd immunity before we're all safe from this, so it's going to keep going throughout this year with the vaccine. But before the pandemic, you had some great issues. I am you still do now? I know I don't mean that they're going away. But they were central issues. You had the governor saying that if you like high taxes New Jersey is the place to be you had the business climate in New Jersey was the worst in the country. You were you had a lot to run on. Then this pandemic comes And we've got poll numbers for the sitting governor that weren't 70% have come down a little bit. But right now, at least the polls, the most recent ones, and there haven't been one of the last couple of weeks, but the most recent ones, he's still very popular throughout this. How do you handle that? Well, every governor gets a bump Larry in the beginning of a crisis. We've seen that all 50 governors throughout the country, including Republican governors and blue states and Democratic governors in Red states. Murphy wasn't alone. Chris Christie got a huge bump in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy look where his poll numbers were a year later. George Herbert Bush was at 82% in the aftermath of the Persian Gulf War and 18 months later lost to an unknown governor from Arkansas. So you're right is pull numbers are already off 15 points from their high of last March and April, and in all three polls, he's underwater on the economy. So listen before issues that existed before the pandemic persist, the property tax crisis, the business climate crisis, the public pension crisis and the way we do affordable housing. Those haven't gone away. In fact, New Jersey will be in a much poor position. To recover from this economic downturn because he ignored those four issues in the first two years of his term, and his handling of the pandemic is certainly open to question. There's a number of things that he's gotten wrong, including his handling of nursing home environment and small businesses on Main Street, So we think there's a real opportunity here for an MBA C P A Communicate a message that resonates with New Jersey voters. You almost have to go after the pandemic, right the handling of the pandemic because that's his strength right now. And you You have to weaken him on that issue to win, I believe, and I'm wondering if if you believe that I do believe that Larry. I mean, if we're going, we could talk about his handling the pandemic. He ordered covert 19 patients into the nursing home There was recently being expose that says in the early stages of the pandemic They were actually working with one particular nursing home on issuing orders for people not to wear masks. And recently New Jersey missed the deadline to get our residents in nursing homes vaccinated with the new vaccines. I mean, this is a total failure. If you look at what he's done, the main street is executive orders were disaster for Main Street. If you owned a bicycle shop, you were allowed to stay open into repairs. But you weren't allowed to sell a bike but warm up was allowed to sell a bike. If you want a jewelry store, he said, You were non essential even though that's how you paid your bills. He shut you down. But the jewelry counter, Wal Mart was allowed to stay open and also his handling of the school's, um Children at very little to no risk. Of this virus. We should add K through five special needs students and those students below the poverty line that don't have access to the Internet and can't remote learn. They need to be in school. And these are three particular areas in his handling pandemic that we think were poor and people across the state. I find as I campaign agree with me. Before you take on Phil Murphy. Pretty gone. The governor, you have to win the nomination and be your top contender right now is Doug Steinhardt. Who was the chair of the New Jersey Republican Party. I should mention that her sing, who is an engineer, and his running several races is also running. But I don't I think everybody thinks this is a race between you and Doug Steinhardt right now. Doug Steinhardt pushes himself as the pro Trump candidate, and John Bram Nick, who was expected to run dropped out, saying that because of the climate of pro Trump He couldn't run. That's what he claimed. He claimed he couldn't run because of the climate among the Republican Party. Do you feel that? And you aren't nearly as pro Trump is Doug Steinhardt, right? Well, John brand Nick was somebody that was certainly anti trump Doug Steiner to somebody who's certainly pro Trump. Um, listen, I was rooting for the president because that's the American thing to do, But my focus is New Jersey. So anybody else could be pro this or pro that I'm pro fixing New Jersey. This is a state that's broken, touched upon number ways in which it is broken, and I've got specific ideas on how to fix it. And I think the Republican Party is very smart as to what's going to play best. Come November. Who's the person that's gonna best represent the Republican Party? Come November and serve all candidates down ballot. Well, I think.

"So, yes, you have a lot of attention and a lot of anger among Democrats who actually outnumber Republicans in that district. Even though it is a very purple district who were really mad about van Drew switching parties. This is a man who It was considered the most conservative Democrat in the state Legislature when he was in the state Senate. And so you know, voters knew what they were getting when they elected him. But the you know the disloyalty of switching parties during such a partisan time. Ah is really what's animating this this race on DH, So you know it, and he's running against Amy Kennedy, who is a local woman, former teacher. Comes from his many generations lived in that district. Ah, and she married into the Kennedy family. Eso has she married Patrick Kennedy, son of Ted and S O. She has some national support and some big money behind her. Ah, and a lot of democratic enthusiasm in the district, so that's one seat. That a Republican could lose in New Jersey, one that a Democrat might lose is in the seventh Congressional district. That's where the incumbent is Democrat Tom Malinowski up against Republican Tom Kane Jr. And that district for people who don't know it spans mostly the northwestern portion of the state, including Hunterdon County, along with portions of Essex, Morris, Somerset. Union for the East and one county both target. Both parties have targeted this district. This race as one they have a shot at winning Nancy. Most of the Democratic incumbents in New Jersey do not have close races. Why? Just Tom Malinowski? Well, I guess he was seen as vulnerable because congressional members in their first reelection after you know, getting he was elected in 2018 are considered it at their most vulnerable. Um and Tom Kane Jr. His opponent, lives in the district and is a very well known state senator. But also the son of Thie. Probably, you know, the most popular former governor Tom Kane. Senior So you know, I think he ran for Senate several years ago and lost and I think, you know, Yeah, and and so he's been chafing at, you know, he wants to move up. And and maybe saw, this is his last opportunity to do that, or or at least a good opportunity to do it. Let's put it that way. Ah! So but meanwhile, since 2016 This. This district and many district's in New Jersey have become more blue. So it now has more Democrats than Republicans than it did in 2016. It's It's a switch of about 26,000 voters from the deficit to now, the advantage that Democrats have on DH, you know, and Malinowski is a pretty popular congressman. He's you know, he he did something fair. What was considered fairly courageous at the time he came out in support of impeachment very early. On DH in a in a purple district that was considered pretty courageous, and so he has, you know, really gained quite a bit of support there. And it's an interesting race because This is what we call Republican horse country mean. This is really the base of old school Moderate Republicanism that you know, used to typify the New Jersey Republican Party. Christine Whitman comes from them exactly on, of course, Tom Kane senior. And so this is and You know, this is the part of the Republican Party that has deserted the party over Trump. And yet Tom Kane Jr has endorsed President Trump. Aunt has always been more conservative than his moderate Republican father. And and so now he's really getting squeezed on DH, and he also Ran ads funded by the National Republican Party. Ah, that that spread a lie per perpetrated by Q and on So that was offensive to many people in the district. Both Republicans and Democrats Tom Kane junior refused to pull the ad after the Washington Post completely debunked what it was saying about Malinowski. Malinowski received death threats over it, so that has hurt him that well, we'll see if it hurt him, but it appears to have Carol. I'm going to flip back to New York. And I'm actually going to skip over the two hotly contested congressional races in the immediate New York City area because I'm going to assume our listeners are fairly familiar with them. We've had Both candidates from both races on this show, and these races have been getting a lot of press. The Democratic incumbent, Max Rose on Staten Island and part of South Brooklyn against the challenger, Nicole Monnier Takis, the Republican And on Long Island for the seat that Republican Peter King is retiring from Democrat Jackie Gordon and Republican Andrew Garbarino. That's that's the other really hot race in this area, and they were both on the show last week. And what I want to ask you about. Next is something that a lot of for New York listeners may not know is at stake, and and that is that while the Democrats Already hold a majority in the New York State Senate. If they flip a few more Republican seats, they may have a supermajority. In the state Senate Now I bet the majority of people listening right now are thinking, huh? State Senate difference between majority and supermajority. Why should I care about this again? Could you fill us in? Yes, well, yes should care because the politicians care of the the Democrats hold 40 seats in the 63 member state Senate if they get to Maura than they'll have two thirds of the chamber and when you have two thirds of the chamber is what's called a veto proof majority meeting. Even if they passed a piece of legislation right now, If the governor vetoes that bill, you have to start sort of scramble and pushing press and try to figure out how to get to 42 votes in orderto override that veto. If you've got 42, though, in your back pocket, And you're the conference leader, If you're Andrea Stewart covet. Then when you're negotiating with the governor, you know he has a little bit less power in a significant way he can't threaten Necessarily to veto a bill or on the flip side of that the Senate majority Khun Say, We will override you. We will pass this law over your objection. We will, in fact, show that you are powerless against our supermajority. So what? What bills what bills or potential issues? Do you think would most likely be in play? In that scenario? What could New York Democrats passed that Cuomo would veto? Well, the one that would be debated and it's by no means clear that they have a supermajority even within the Democratic Conference, but a tax increase. Well, tax a piano terror attacks. Ah, higher income tax. Uh, that's number one number two is maybe a substantial bump in funding for education. Now, of course, a lot of this If you're talking about spending priorities, a lot of that is going to be moved, or at least postponed until there could be some kind of resolution to the likely huge deficits that we're facing because of the slowdown in the pandemic. But once that's resolved, how those priorities will be sorted out will be up to the governor and the Legislature and right now the governor has been given With car blocks to bake all kind of spending cuts..

We have no choice. We can't lock ourselves up in a basement like Joe does, Biden responded, citing the more than 223,000 US deaths and counting you folks home.

"From NPR news. This is weekend edition on W C. I'm David first. President Trump's reelection campaign and the New Jersey Republican Party are suing Governor Phil Murphy over his vote by mail plan, which will send ballots to every registered voter in New Jersey and prohibits in person voting except to file a provisional ballot. GOP lawyers say the governor lacks the authority to change the states Voting system. Joining us now for an update on the lawsuit is politico New Jersey's Matt Friedman. Hey, man. Hey, David. Thanks for having me So Matt. This lawsuit was filed two weeks ago. Can you walk us through the complaint? Sure. Well, it basically made three different types of complaints. One was that the governor usurped the Legislature's authority on changing how elections are run in New Jersey. That point has pretty much been made moot because the Legislature just last week passed a law essentially encoding the governor's executive order on the election. Into law. The Legislature then took that authority back completely moving that complaint, But the other parts of it are that it violates the Constitution's electors Clause in Elections clause. And the 14th amendment in terms of in person voting. It claims its going to disenfranchise voters because of mostly unfounded claims that voters fraud through mail in ballots are rampant, but the strongest argument it had Was about the Legislature and that's out the window now. Okay, so once the latest well, what occurred to me is that this lawsuit was filed on August 18th. But the thing is The lawsuit claims that this election is going to be a quote recipe for disaster. You would think if that's really the case, then the first thing the Trump campaign would do after filing the lawsuit. To seek a preliminary injunction, which is just legal language for asking a judge to say, Tell the Murphy administration hold off. You can't go forward with this until this lawsuit is decided, or at least until this question is decided. But even though they requested an injunction in their initial complaint, they never filed the motion necessary to actually seek to get the judge to rule on that early. So what's happening right now is you have this lawsuit wending its way through the federal courts at a normal, slow pace? You have a judge deciding whether a couple groups can intervene in the case by October 5th October. 5th is a key date because that is the last day for county clerks to get out their mail in ballots. Essentially The way this case is moving by the time it's decided, if it's even decided before Election Day, the mail in ballot election in New Jersey will be well underway. All right, So how serious is this lawsuit? Is this gonna move forward? Yeah, I think maybe they could make a rhetorical point with it. It certainly seems like the lawsuit might have been more about messaging. This isn't the only state where the trump campaign eyes doing this than actually avoiding this election from happening. In a story I wrote about this Democratic election lawyer Scott Salmon says he believes that you know they were never serious about it and knew they were going to lose because if they thought they had any chance they would have sought a preliminary injunction. The Trump campaign didn't directly answer this question. They said that Ah It was a victory for them that the Legislature took back its power and decided to do this, But they still think the election is wrong, but they didn't address why they didn't actually try to head off the way this election is conducted. There's going to be ballots sent out by some county clerks next week. That's the plan anyway, so I think that at this point lawsuit is more or less symbolic unless they do file a pil inner injunction within the next few days and actually get a judge to agree to it. Okay. Matt Friedman covers New Jersey for politico. He also writes the NewJersey Playbook newsletter. Thanks for the update, Mack Okay. Thanks, David. Poverty is linked to the blood and can be exterminated on the next radio lab, one of the most dangerous.

Cortez was one of them, and they certainly wanted her to have more speaking time. Optimism have also expressed frustration that there are just in their view.

New Jersey Republicans have joined with President Trump's reelection campaign and the RNC to sue the state over plans to hold vote by mail elections in November from member station W. H. Y Kenneth Burns reports the lawsuit Accuses Governor Phil Murphy of committing a brazen power grab. Governor Murphy ordered the vote by mail election in the fall to mitigate the spread of covert 19. But Republicans in their lawsuit said the executive order is unconstitutional because it violates a citizen's right to vote.

They're pointing to a special election in Patterson last May, where state voting fraud charges air now pending against four people, including a city councilman and one of the presumptive winners. The president has been fighting against vote by mail elections stipulating that they are less secure than voting in person.
