"Is less important. It fades into obscurity as it now operate. So I said to myself, Okay, you're running for president and you have you don't have unlimited funds. Some nights. It seems they do, but they don't have unlimited funds. So since you now count campaigning for votes, not for states, you're going to spend your time in those places where there is the biggest concentration of voters because you wanted when you have meat. When you have a media buy, you wanna have the most eyeballs and ears listening. So you're going to focus your attention on population centers, which generally mean cities and states on the coast, which means I said to myself, the cities on the coast, the progressive States. Get to decide Elections they become, in effect, the battleground states and the whole middle of the country. The Heartland disappears into obscurity. Now I'm learning That I was wrong. But Help us understand why I was wrong in that fear. That's just straight up demographics and I saw use. I hate sinking the numbers when I'm talking because it's hard to follow. It's really simple. Think about it this way. 100 largest cities in this country are 1/6. Of the total population of this country. All the world areas that's everything outside the metropolitan Statistical areas around the country are also 16. Of the total population of the country, the other two thirds or in the suburbs and the excerpts The city's vote about 60% Democrat the rural areas about 60% Republican and the suburbs, and the excerpt voted 51 49, depending on the candidate and depending on the year. So if all you did was campaign in the big cities You would only hit 18 to 20% of the total population of the country. If all you did. The other interesting statistical number is 50% of the people live within 25 miles of the coast. Okay of the coach of this country all around the country 50%. But that also means 50% of the people Don't If you when every single vote matters you cannot afford to to ignore any vote anywhere. I was used by example. I used to represent when I was in the Senate. The Senate seat in California has about a billion people in and which means I've got more votes than governors and U. S. Senators of of seven states. But I represent both Riverside in San Diego County. Now the city of Riverside in my district had 40% of my votes. The county of San Diego portion of my district had 13% of the total vote, but I would get 85% of the vote in San Diego County because they like to be down there. I'd only get about 45% of the vote of Riverside. I needed every single vote in San Diego County to overcome the problems up in Riverside that I had. So I would make sure those people were the happiest people on Earth from a political point of view because I needed every single one of those boats. That's what you would find would happen in a presidential campaign. It doesn't matter. You know how big the population is. What matters is the margins of victory that you get in the various areas around the country. And in some of those areas as a Republican, you're gonna want to crank up the votes in the rural areas, so you gotta pay more attention. The world voters. If every single rural vote matters You know, the other their whole bunch of other challenges. You mean trying to campaign and just The biggest cities around the country, those of the most expensive media markets in the country so you would end up spending a heck of a lot more money. You can't take Chicago L A. In New York, for example, they are. 11% of the total population of this country. You can't spend enough money to get enough votes. In those areas to win that election. So you've got to think about where you're going. You're bigger challenge right now Under the winner take all system and the problem of the battleground states is if you want to campaign in Florida and Pennsylvania and Ohio. You are paying a high premium. Four media buys because everybody wants to buy the everybody wants to buy in those in those markets. So what would end up happening is if all of a sudden, every single vote across the country became important, then the media outlets in Ohio and Pennsylvania and Florida wouldn't be able to charge that premium. The money would get spread out across the country. Instead of just focusing on those battleground states. How would a candidate for president under Once the Interstate compact achieves lift off at 270 electoral votes. How would a presidential campaign look different that it is now and in the voting public? Yup. I think you've answered this, but it might be good. Space a place to revisit it. Who would be the voter winners and losers because they're always all both under the interstate compact as compared to now, But first, how would a presidential campaign Be organized differently. Would the issues change with the style of the campaign? How would it be different under the Interstate compact? Why not start with the issue question because right now the campaign's campaigns political issue strategy. Focus on what's important to Floridians. Tio North Carolinian, Pennsylvanians, Ohioans. They, they they Both pole and focus groups. Those areas find out the issues that are most important to them and campaign to those issues. Of all of sudden they had to campaign for every single voter across. Country, the political issues strategy would be what issues are important to the most American people. They also they would have to worry about what the voter in Wyoming in North and South Carolina and, um you know Missouri and You know, every single voter, I guess devious way. But what is most important to most of the voters so you would see a completely different issue mix you couldn't promise. To give free drugs to seniors in Florida. Did you pick up 300,000 votes in Florida for doing that, but lose half a million votes across the rest of the country. And those kind of things that have been driving a lot of the discussions and debates. You know what? How do I pick up 100,000 votes in Cleveland? Or how do I pick up 200,000 votes in Miami? How do I pick up? You know, X number of votes in Philadelphia, uh, that you know, without losing. Another vote in Philadelphia or losing in Pennsylvania. Now, you would have to worry if I if I promise this To the voters of Florida. How are the voters in No Kansas going to think I might go more voters in Kansas. If I promised this, then I will gain in Florida. That's that's the balance that will have to go in from political strategy point. For my political campaign point of view, you're gonna have to figure out a way of making sure that you talked to his many voters as you possibly can off the entire country. You know, there's about 500 presidential campaign visits in any particular election. There are 435 Congressional district. What we know is in battleground states. Candidates. This congressional district equally, they get around the state and talk in every single congressional district. Unequal number of times. What's going to happen is we're going to do that. On a nationwide basis. They're going to go talk to all 435 congressional district, not just the congressional district in Ohio and Florida. You know, Arizona, Pennsylvania, which is what they're doing right now. I confessed to live in my head a lot. And I start to think and think and think and work this out almost like three dimensional chess, which I can't even play one dimensional just almost like three dimensional chess. So what I started toward as I Got into this discussion and I loved what was going on in my head. I started to wonder. Let's go beyond this. There are also Senate races that one third of the Senate is up of the US Senate is up for reelection every two years and the entire house every two years. How would if at all, and maybe the answer is not at all? But you're the person to ask Ray. How would this effect? Senate races and races in the House because there is a an effect of the presidential election on what's called the down ticket. Races as well. Whether there are coattails or not, because if you are running for the Senate in a state, the U. S Senate and under this initiative With that. Result in any different dynamic in Senate races. That's actually an excellent question. And the truth is, it's one that I really can't answer. I'm not. I'm not real sure. Mainly because right now, just because you have battleground states for presidential campaigns, he also have battleground states for you Return some U. S. Senators are gonna win. Re election. I think the matter what are you know John Cornyn down in Texas is not gonna look, I don't care what would be say he's not gonna lose. But there are you know, like Joni Ernst in in Ohio. We'll have some issues. Winning because again closely divided state that is That much is not going to change because races.

"2700, journalists and analysts in over 120 countries. I'm more cramped in this is Bloomberg. David, Thanks so much Mark. Each week in the run up to the election. We're going to take a look at one of the critical swing states last week it was Arizona we looked looked at this week. It is North Carolina and to give us a sense of the politics of the state and how they may be changing. We welcome now, Professor Michael Bitzer. He is chair of the Department of Politics at Catawba College. So, Professor Thank you so much for being with us. Give us your sense. A snapshot right now of North Carolina. And And what is it? Is it blue? Is it red? Is it purple? What is it? What is it? We are a purple state with a very slight tent. Two ribs were center lean right, but it's all dependent on who shows up. And what has happened here in North Carolina, after 2008 and particularly 2010 is that North Carolinians have basically sorted themselves into the respective partisan camps, you know, in 2000 for George W. Bush won the state by 13% points and the Democratic governor who was running for re election. Also one by 13% points. That day of North Carolinian, splitting their tickets as now shrunk to probably 3 to 5% of the electorate. Most North Carolinians have their minds made up going into November 3rd. So that's true sort of cost. The country appears there's a low number of undecided. Give us a sense of your campaign in North Carolina is a geographic difference. What he what do you really want to focus on One of the key counties, for example, are the key counted. You have to get I think certainly out of the 100 counties in North Carolina, 12 of them will deliver 50% of the vote. And those are the major urban counties. Mecklenburg home to Charlotte, Wake County, home to Raleigh, the state capital. But it's critical that within those urban counties, the suburbs within those urban counties are indeed the true battle grounds. Central City's like Charlotte and Raleigh, voted for Hillary Clinton to tow one in 2016. If you go to the surrounding suburban counties, Donald Trump won those counties to tow one in 2016. It's those urban suburbs that literally split 50 50 slight edge to Hillary Clinton and 2016. I'm going to be watching those to see if there's any slippage among the Republicans in those areas. And how deep is the margin in the surrounding suburban counties? Can Democrats eat into that Republican advantage? How fast is it growing? That is to say there are a fair number of voters today that there were unique there to 2016? There is and nearly two million new registered voters since 2016. So this state is continues to grow exponentially, as does our registered voter pool slightly over seven million registered voters so far, and out of that we already have nearly a million North Carolinians. You are registered voters who have requested an absentee by mail ballot that is unheard of in this state. So the interest in the enthusiasm is certainly through the roof here in North Carolina, so just looking at the real clear politics average of the polls, which is one way to look at it, it looks like it's like 1% for Biden right now in North Carolina, which is essentially a dead heat. Effectively. How do you play right now? Is it a dead he and it's really fighting over that very small number of people that are undecided. It truly is, you know, I heard one political consultants say if a candidate wins by more than 5% in the state, that's a landslide. And so Donald Trump won the state a little over 3.5% points. Thom Tillis in 2014 by a point and a half, so this is going to be a very tight election. It's all dependent upon again who shows up and how do the campaign's motivate and energize their respective basis. And what are the issues Because there's some speculation right now, with the passing of Ruth Bader Ginsberg, that is really elevated the importance of the Supreme Court. Is that true in North Carolina, and if so, which way do you think it cut? Honestly, I think it's too early to determine that here in North Carolina, but I think the key voting bloc will be suburban women. How does the president's pick? Play to them. Are they willing to look past is other issues and concerns that they have about the president and vote purely on the court and the court nominee that he puts forward? I think that's just going to be the critical component white suburban women in those competitive battleground states of North Carolina. You mentioned Senator Tillis give us a sense of how that race is doing, because again, looking at the real clear politics average at least He's losing about 3.5%, which was probably within the margin of error. It is certainly within the margin of error. But interestingly he's playing behind the president's numbers here in the state, and early on, he made a concerted effort to tie himself to President Trump. When President Trump's approval ratings started to slip in this state, So too, did his numbers as well. So he needs to hope that this Supreme Court pick really energizes and pulls the base back to supporting him. Come November, 3rd, Okay, because they're really great to have you with us. It was very instructive. That's Professor Michael Bitzer of Catawba College coming up here, We're gonna take a look at how much political risk.

This he has a move a couple of steps to the right and throw it like that off the rim where it rebounds everytime exactly right about Trade Jones Thorwald were but even then even then grabs it and dribbles it through three poeple instill makes a really difficult shot. He doesn't make the shot. The other Kino veterans regulation misses the foul shot. He's into the game. Oh He's a kid. He's the one kid last year who everyone thought might be able to go first round but he had a poor year and he came back and I don't know what he's going to be as a pro. There's a million guards from Duke and North Carolina and Kentucky a million guards the NBA and three quarters of a million of them aren't great like they were in college. They just aren't. Yeah because it's tougher and it's not A. He's not an elite shooter. which usually do these small but that game was spectacular? After after the game. She Chef Ski said and he was one hundred percent right. I understand. Carolina is in a down year but that was Carolina. Well they have they. They had colon anthony back. It's like his second and couldn't down the ball. He is a dynamic. Yes layers create shots for others without him. They have nothing. Yeah there's not I mean they're they're wreck day are as per cell. Says I guess what the record says they are but they're not ten and thirteen withheld lamp. That's ten and thirteen against Duke right or not. So there was that Roy afterwards and Roy Wary now in his late sixties of how social media can destroy your life in ten seconds. Destroy Your Life. If you pay attention to it started started saying we're not pansies and it went. ooh maybe maybe I can't use that word is at all I mean by that. Is there people who don't compete. And we compete and tried to talk his way around in and out of it and he probably probably did and at the end he said I'm not going to quit. I quit my team's not gonNA quit. WE'RE GONNA be out there practicing. That was really great. Watch devastating home loss for a season. 'cause over I understand but that's a that's one that you can say well. We were terrible this this year but we beat Duke. It's a it's a well you'd still have another chance at do a different dude at home. It's going to be hard a great time to get that on at six o'clock so he could see what happened in the eight o'clock. Yeah you can watch all of it. I mean it was really really. That was as good a watch as sports provides. It really was as great. The other thing for me was the was the golf tournament which I watched almost every shot of in a guy named Nick Taylor a Canadian who has won once before before on tour. This is his second win in one hundred and sixty starts. It's he went head to head with Phil Mickelson when everybody. I don't know about everybody but me. I certainly thought Phil Mickelson was GonNa Win Phil. Mickelson was minus three to six six or seven and was down shot on the day. The other key eagled. The other kid got in trouble a couple of times but won the tournament on the fifteenth hole when he chipped in which he did chipped in for Eagle Prior to that on two or three whatever hole that is phil probably lost Probably lost on eight and nine even when he was plus three Phyllis plus five after the seventh hole. It was not a great Phil. Mickelson performance notice really fun to watch. I thought it was really fun to watch. They were playing in big wind STROMAN got into second place film Mr Pot on eighteen which would have gotten him into the massive dig win the big finish for team Johnny L.. Because he's wearing the big logo Truman's wearing the big logo Taylor was was minus two on the day. Hey which is all you really have to be in. The wind was enormous. If you don't like golf I understand. That doesn't mean much but Michael. What did you think of Taylor? And what did you think Phil so this is people are going to be asking this week. Are we really watching the final phase. The Final Act of Phil Mickelson. He's tried to delay it with his entrance into social media with the fireside chats with the attention to his body trying to reshape what he might be able to do as he turns fifty years old. This summer this tournament meant a lot to him. He's one more more than a handful of times. He has connections to pebble gum five area because of his grandfather. That story has been widely circulated chatty a caddy and they did the commemorative silver dollar dollar giveaways to all the competitors. So this was when he really wanted an everything was lining up for me at tough conditions. He had what became a match-play situation and golf often. We have to look look at the three arcs of it. We have the opening six. We have the middle six and we have the final. Eighteen are the final six on this course you have to score early and the wind made it really hard. A lot of those holes. Were down and wind. You think that'd be easier for the end but for the pros it's harder to control the spin. Get the ball to end where you want it to end. He played super aggressive from the start. And got up ahead. But it is exactly what you said eight nine or two of the hardest holes on the PGA tour eight might be the most perfect par for golf in terms of where you have to play the top of the hill and and he gave up probably net overall hundred yards. detailer off the tee on those tools. He laid back and he saw a number nine. He played the wrong club. I think foued said he was at leased. One Club unless shots. This happened a lot. He was short. You saw phil. At the beginning of the week saying everything was about his mindset his visualization what he wanted wanted to see the ball do and really he was off the mark for the entire back-nine you then saw him miss club or miss shape shots in that fourteen. Fifteen stretch where he was sailing hole on twelve. He might have gone long by thirty or forty yards But Still Taylor led him in it after that double that he had on fourteen and and as soon as fill his bunker shot to about a foot and a half you think on on fifteen. Here's fills opening. He might be able to push something at the end and then the kidnappers then he nails it and now is the tournament and so it was fun for me to watch. What is particularly fun for me is this is the one tournament on the PGA tour where amador's play and they play off for days? Yes they can if you're if you make you make the cut and they have to show you on TV when you get to the final day on the weekends so people that like we don't know Chris O'Donnell Donald but he's John O'Donnell's brother. Yeah so you look at Chris. O'Donnell I wrote Johnny Owen. Note saying why are you on the bag and he said No. I'm not on the bag this time. Time Because he had done that before I think he'd caddied for his brother and took a shot at his brother's saying Christmas. The cut again trump slamming.

"Discount the price by six thousand dollars. This happens every day and the seller. Either says, oh, you got me. I wasn't line. I just didn't know because attended lived in the house that I wasn't aware. So either discount a six grand, or I'll send my guy into fixed those things then you have you extend your due diligence period, the point is you gotta see it or somebody from your team has to see it. But it's a good idea to look in other markets. If you're from Orange County, California where you can't generate a yield because the house is the taxes too expensive, it kind of blocks you out from single family. So I think it's a good idea to find another place. Elsewhere. And just get somebody to go in there for you. Yeah. It's like one of those things when you do a Carfax, and it's like, you only do a Carfax, but you're also not going to do one hundred and fifty point inspection on your car, and you're in California, but your cars and say Michigan somewhere you need to do the inspection pay the hundred and fifty dollars or or a buck seventy five. So you say, you know, on quickly you're not buying a lemon, and you're getting this inspection on this car done from a professional the exact same thing with the house inspection out even go as far as getting a survey. Right. Make sure that they're no you're not intruding on anybody's property. These types of things matter, otherwise you will inherit problems, and then you'll have to deal with them accordingly. I just don't understand like how people can buy cars without seeing them or at least paying analogy. The interesting to your allergy is that you don't actually have to test drive them. Okay. That's the thing is that the the idea that you could buy a car if you were going to buy a late model car, and you got inspecting the person said it runs, it drives I test drove it. It looks good. It's got a ding here. It's got needs new tires in the front. Okay. Good. Now. I have the inspection, and I can buy, and if if it gets to me that it's a piece of junk, it doesn't drive I've made a mistake. But you actually, I mean I have bought cars from across the country without doing a test drive. But. But the inspection. That guy did a test drive. And so it was good nothing. Both times it worked out. And that's what you pay professionals. That's exactly why you have them in your life. All right. You avoid mistakes that way right? One hundred percent. All right next question. I think that was that was an awesome question. First of all Andrea. Thank you so much for that second question. I would I would say third question comes from Danny and New York, I live in New York City your old stomping grounds, Greg, and I want to invest within an hour's drive I can tell Greg's New Yorker where let me guess is. It is overall general attitude toward life. In North Carolina. So I don't know what he's talking about. I'm a north Carolinian. Right. Is that what they really call them north Carolinians? Yeah. Man, that's a mouthful where where should I invest? I have a quarter million dollars in cash. Okay. Quarter million dollars in cash, and he wants to stay within an hour of New York. Well, here's the thing about New York is that the taxes are super high same with New Jersey. And so what tends to happen and the prices are high. So it tends to happen. When the prices go up higher and the taxes go up higher the rents don't necessarily keep up. So like in the last question about Davenport about Iowa, I made the reference to the fact that prices are low and the rents aren't as well. I mean in proportion with each other when the prices are low the rent still, stay people get one hundred thousand dollar house. They're still going to rent it for eight hundred you could buy one hundred eighty thousand dollar house in New York suburbs and still be paying seven hundred dollars in rent. And so there is a it doesn't quite keep up. So for that reason, it's not a great place to get a yield. However, if you go further out Connecticut's, an interesting thing because the taxes lowering Connecticut, but you can go to the multifamily space multifamily is really interesting, you know, when you can get in a single. Oh, family home. You get two thousand dollars a month in rent. But if you buy a two family home in the same town, you get fifteen hundred dollars a month for each apartment. Right. So now the same Madison Square footage you're getting three thousand dollars a month rent instead of two thousand dollars a month. That's where almost anywhere. I'm sorry know most any direction outside of New York queens into Long Island, Connecticut, Westchester Rockland county into New Jersey. Staten Island in any of those places you can find two and three family properties. The not quite the same as single family because you're never going to sell them to a homebuyer later on which is one of the advantages as we talk about single family homes, but I would say two and three family houses in in growing neighborhoods neighborhoods that are improving in and around the city would work, really. Well. What do you think about Long Island city now that it's become HD two or three for Amazon? Do you think that we should re kind of redo our strategy to go all in into Long Island city, five seconds. Maybe ten it's definitely going to make a big difference in queens.

"What that looks like as far as. Make-up days and all that type of stuff and issues like that ruin. It'd be more at a local level and that's a concern, particularly for education. One other big area is hill care. We are a state that has still not expanded Medicaid, and that is a huge problem that related to maybe anywhere between half a million to six hundred thousand north Carolinians who do not have healthcare. So that trickles down to a lot of things related to consumption, even live, you know, they're quality of life. So those are some huge issues that I'm hearing about, but I want to have an immediate ability to change if I get elected. So we've mentioned this in some other states that we've looked at, but the paid for a state Senator in North Carolina is extremely low. It's around fourteen thousand dollars a year plus them per diem expenses. So I assume this is meant to be a part time position to know what sort of looks like for the people who are state senators and what else they need to. Do then to make ends meet, you know, that is a wonderful point and question. It is considered part time work. So I mentioned that I'm a full time professional and higher Ed, and I do not plan on leaving my job. I can't. You know, I'm a big part with both. My husband and I supported our family and I don't quite know how we're gonna do that. That's just me being honest, I don't. I don't know what that's gonna look like. I have talked to current legislators and just ask, you know, what's your schedule like? And it's multiple days you know, for a long session in particular where you're expected to be in Raleigh, sometimes in the evening, but sometimes during the day, I think there are certain times we have to be there at noon on word, and that cuts particularly into schedule someone who's working eight to five job like I am so that is an issue. And it's something that I've had to think about. Also having three kids, you know, need to be at home at some point to work with my husband to take care of our family. So I'm hoping that there will be a lot of new console. Cetaceans here in Raleigh, North Carolina based on either elections. And I think what a part time legislators, responsibilities needs to be one of them. They're not very many young people in our legislature. And when I say, I mean thirties, you know my age, which is necessarily particularly, but in the case of what our legislators like that is younger and I don't even there's a handful of that age group. And so when you don't have diversity in age as well as race and background, you know jobs, that kind of thing. You lose out a lot on really representing the people of North Carolina. So you know, that's a big concern of mine that I really hope becomes an important conversation. You know to whoever gets elected in November. You mentioned that you're a biologist and you have a PHD in microbiology and immunology. It was wondering given that this year we've seen a sort of swell in scientists and other science professionals running for office winning. Few could talk a little bit about how you think your science background can really add something to being in office. You know, this is really kind of an intentional for me. I am not even inside asked much is maybe at one point in my life was thing about me a true scientist.

Even if you've written out stores before this one is different is what he said, he just spoke earlier on CNN, and he's democratic governor making great points. Listen to this. Thanks, kate. Glad to be here. Thank you. So right now, the storm is headed straight for your state. I mean, that's seems very clear where is your biggest focus right now. Ruin the bullseye and concerned about three three things. We're concerned about storm surge high winds and inland flooding, and the main thing is that we want people to evacuate coastal areas. North Carolina we're used to storms nor'easters we've had canes before. But this is historic. This storm is big and his vicious, and we know north Carolinians are a hardy Belhadj and many of them think about riding out the storm. We're telling the people of North Carolina do not try to ride out a monster. You put your own lives at risk, and you put the lives at risk of first responders who may have to try and rescue you. So we're continuing to get out the word people will further inward inland. We want to make sure that they are ready with their emergency supply kits and water and food. And we're gonna have shelters and help for them. The best preparation is common sense. And that's what we're doing right now. Everything you say this is going to be historic. How bad do you think? This is going to be. Well, the meteorologists continue to tell us there's nothing stopping the storm. We know that it is heading straight for the North Carolina coast in what may be even worse is if this thing stalls, either just off the coast or comes inland installs. The meteorologists were telling us that that's essentially what is going to do. And then you're measuring rain in feet and not inches. We have a lot of low lying areas were concerned about the storm surge pushing the rivers and flooding areas. So we know that is not just going to be at the coast almost every north Carolinian is going to be affected by this storm in one way or another. So we're encouraging all north Carolinians to be prepared. We know that there's probably going to be loss of power for a number of days. And maybe even longer I've talked to people in the utility companies. They've got people coming from all over the country to help get ready for this. So we're hunkering down. And we're going to be ready. But we know it's going to be tough governor the president tweeted that he spoke with you yesterday. What did he tell you? He told us that we could get what we needed. I've had a conversation with the president with FEMA director administrator Brock long. The FEMA partners are here in North Carolina. They have said they're going to help us. We look forward to that help we want to hold them to it. And we believe that they will be good partners with us. We've had a good relationship with FEMA in the past. And we know that we're all in this thing together, local state and federal we have to pull together because people's lives are at stake. And we know what kind of long lasting damage can occur. Governor. The administration administration has faced a lot of criticism for its handling of past hurricane hurricane Maria last year. Nearly three talk about lives at stake nearly three thousand people were killed in Puerto Rico. In the aftermath? Get today the president called the federal response as we're discussing the response to that a success. Listen to this. I think for Ricca was incredibly successful. I think the Puerto Rico was an incredible success. You say you're you all need to work together to protect the residents of North Carolina. He trust him when he says something like that. I mean, you agree with what he said. We've had a good relationship with FEMA in the past. They have promised help to us. We're going to hold them to it. We've got a storm. There's just a couple of days off the coast of North Carolina. And we know that everyone has to pull together to make this work, and we expect this to happen and look forward to their health not only now, but in the days weeks and months after the storm because the storm this catastrophic and we're pretty sure that it's going to be there will be long term recovery. And we're going to have to have significant federal help expecting that to happen. That's why I asked him you say you've had a good relationship with FEMA. What about the president here when he says, it's an unsung success? What happened in Puerto Rico? I just gotta jump in here because the part about this. It's amazing to me is how people are already trying to divide before the storms happen saying, let's talk about the politics of this. Let's talk about the politics while the presence of this. Let's get you guys divided. While clearly you need to be having a good working relationship. Let's get you on the record saying something negative about the. So then they can go back and forth.
