Pompeo still poised to run for Senate
"Secretary estate. Mike Pompeo who has been mentioned quite a bit in the impeachment testimony is reportedly considering leaving the White House for another job. According to report in Time magazine by John Walcott and W J Hennigan quote. Mike Pompeo has told three prominent Republicans in recent weeks that he plans to resign from the trump administration to run for the US Senate from Kansas in next year's elections. The problem how to get out in one piece POMPEO's plan had been to remain at the State Department until early spring next year. The three Republicans tell time but recent developments including the house. Impeachment inquiry are hurting him politically and straining his relationship with trump. So pompeo is rethinking his calendar say the top Republicans one who served in the trump administration association another who remains government at a third who served in several high ranking posts and is active in. GOP politics the timing of POMPEO's resignation. Asian now will be decided by his ability to navigate the smoothest possible exit from the administration the three Republicans say and quote. Okay so let's briefly examine in that Kansas Senate race. The seat is actually open as incumbent. Republican Pat Roberts is retiring at the end of his term. According to the Cook Political report there is a robust Republican primary Mary field including at least eight candidates right now. There are also three Democrats running in the primary for the seat overall is rated as likely Republican by Cook which means just what it says. It is likely to go republican assuming nothing totally bizarre happens. It's not entirely clear that pompeo could win the primary Mary there but he's got a shot he does face. One uniquely unpopular candidate reading from Cook in analysis with no byline quote one candidate candidate. GOP strategists would like to see exit. The field is Chris Kobuk Koba close ally of unpopular former governor. Sam Brownback ran a terrible campaign pain in two thousand. Eighteen costing Republicans. The governor's Mansion Republicans have made no secret that they don't want coke as the nominee co box favorable slash lash. Unfavorable ratings are thirty two percent to fifty percent and quote. I haven't seen any other polling on that primary yet and clearly there is still a lot a lot of time for more folks to enter so we'll keep an eye on that race as we could see a White House staffer heading straight into a Senate primary in the coming weeks

So you had to really work on that. So people would come together, and we did that and got eighty seven votes that was record. Maybe that can be the example. I hope it will be Senator Roberts who has announced he will not seek reelection. In twenty twenty says he is hopeful the congress can get back to working together. What's like, they did when he was first elected to the house of representatives in one thousand nine hundred eighty I hope we can get back to that. That's the way it was when I first came to the congress and had the privilege of being chairman working with Kika dealer Garza. What a great man what a great chairman, and we got a lot done.

It sounds like before the announcement was made by Pat Roberts on Friday. Yeah. He'd be good at it. Matt would be very good at that job. And not only I mean, he knows everybody in Washington, which will become useful. But the thing I like about mad is that he's plainspoken. So he's got an interesting thing going on, you know, mercy Mercedes his wife is in the White House, and she's got a communications job to do. But Matt never let that hold him back from speaking his mind, he's always very Frank with us and not just with us. But he's the same in person. He's the same on the air. He's like that all the time. And if he can be that plainspoken as a sitting US Senator that'll be of immense value to the voters who put him there in Kansas. I think this would be a good move. Also, he is. I think willing to shake things up. He's not like held up in the old ways of thinking, the United States Senate is paralyzed by a bunch of old thought, I think that doesn't especially on the Republican side that doesn't make them as nimble as they need to be Matt is definitely nimble when it comes to politics.

And we begin this hour talking numbers that start with four hundred twenty thousand that would be the rough estimate of the number of federal employees currently working without pay because the government has deemed them essential three hundred eighty thousand about that many federal workers are furloughed which means they're not working, and they're not getting paid to. That's the number of times, the president has met with party leaders in the White House situation room in the last seventy two hours sixteen that's the number of days. The twenty thirteen government shutdown lasted Democrats or Republicans were fighting over the Affordable Care Act and raising the debt ceiling twenty four billion dollars. That is that's a standard and Poor's analysis of how much that sixteen day shutdown cost the government if the current government shutdown lasts until Monday, it will be the second longest in history. We are going to turn to someone now who played a key role in that twenty thirteen government shutdown. Michael Steele was press secretary for then speaker of the house. John bainer. So we had a front row seat for that standoff. Michael Steele, welcome to the program. Good to be with you before we get to twenty thirteen and what happened then your thoughts on how this one is playing out. Trump is now saying it could last months or even years, which are reaction. President Trump is a president. Unlike any other in this is a shutdown. Unlike any other most government shutdowns result from congress, which under our constitution has the power of the purse trying to force the president to do something. This is exactly the opposite. This is the president shutting down the government is centrally trying to force congress to do something. It's kind of a blazing saddles approach taking himself hostage. You said a shutdown. Unlike any other, but Arthur lessons, we could learn how did you find a way out of it in the end in two thousand thirteen. The twenty thirteen shutdown was ultimately a mismatch between priorities and tactics. People believed that people oppose the Affordable Care Act of that time. It was not popular by any stretch of the imagination at the same time shutting down the government in an attempt to defunding was also not very popular. And what we ultimately did was whether the political attacks from Senate Democrats from President Obama until Republicans in moderate seats in the house were willing to join with Democrats to reopen the government and provide funding for the Affordable Care Act. This is a very different situation in the sense that it's hard to see any coalition coming together in either house really that would be able to pass a Bill that included funding the government and this additional five billion dollars that the president is demanding for his wall along the border one other thing that seems really different is the lack of urgency that we seemed. To be seeing now versus in two thousand thirteen where I mean now, we are two weeks. And there really hasn't been any real talks until the last few days. No, it's really strikingly different in two ways from from that point of view. The first is the the usual rule of government shutdown is the way you win government shutdown fight is by making the public convincing the public that you don't want to shut down the government. You have to show people that you've gone to every extent possible to avoid shutting down the government. And President Trump went exactly the opposite direction on that. He says that he is responsible with this shutdown. He wears it. Proudly he he's just he's accepting responsibility. Or blame in a way that hasn't been typical and the second ways. Yeah. As you said part of it is due to the fact that only a portion of the federal government shutdown. It's not a complete federal government shutdown silver critical areas, including the department of defense are fully funded, but it is really striking the degree to which there's not a sense of urgency. There's not a sense of emergency of there's not. That same sense of crisis that we've seen in past shutdowns. You have a lot of experience working with Republicans on the hill. As I want to ask you about one of the most perhaps the most prominent Republican on the hill this time around Mitch McConnell. The Senate majority leader who now is dealing with two Republican senators who have broken ranks, and are urging compromise is Senator McConnell arguably now under more pressure than anybody to Inness. No, Senator McConnell is actually kind of in the catbird seat. He has the way he usually does drawn a drawn a scenario where he doesn't think that the Senate should lead on this. There will be no more test votes. No more show votes. Nothing will happen until we have the proposal negotiated between House Democrats agreed to by Senate Democrats who have to provide at least ten votes in the Senate in order to get anything done are almost ten votes in order to get anything done and and President Trump himself. And while that position allows senators up for Republican senators up for reelection and potentially swing states like Colorado and Maine to favor opening the government it allows most Senate Republicans who look want better border security. They think that an additional five billion dollars is probably a pretty reasonable. Some. They understand that a physical barrier in some portions of the border makes a lot of sense. But they understand that politically shutting down the government to. Accomplish that goal is not popular. And also unlikely to succeed, that's Michael Steele. He was press secretary for speaker of the house, John bainer. He's now Hamilton place strategies, Michael Steele. Thank you. Thank you. All week. We've been hearing from people whose lives have been up ended by the partial government shutdown for Alex read in IT technician in South Carolina. The shutdown is standing in the way of his dream opportunity. An internship at NASA Glenn research center in Cleveland, the internship was actually for research and development of electric propulsion systems. It was going to be like a stepping stone for my career because what I've always wanted to do was be in research and development and having this opportunity presented to me. I felt like a kid on Christmas morning when he gets his first bicycle I didn't think it was possible that at my age that I'd get offered an internship, especially for exactly what I wanted to do. Alex read his age is thirty seven the internship was supposed to start this coming Monday. But it is now on hold read had already quit his job. But he says he's picking up some hours of work while he waits. He is hoping to hear good news from NASA soon, but so far communication has been minimal the way that they've ordered the emails is that will get an Email the day after the government opens up. I don't know how much time is going to give us to report for orientation. I'm hoping it's more than forty eight hours. But I have no idea because we don't have any information because they don't have any information read says he's not someone who follows politics. He had tuned out all the partisan fighting in Washington until now you go from not carrying not paying attention leading agendas be agendas, and you just mind your own business and take care of yourself to. Now, you have to try figure out what's going on if something's going to change when it's going to change. Because now it affects you it's frustrating, and it creates a lot of stress and anxiety. That's Alex Reid of South Carolina looking forward to the end of the partial shutdown. So he can start his NASA internship in Cleveland. Democrats took control of the house of representatives this week. And they're already changing the rules, every new congress the majority rewrites the rules that govern the chamber. And this time those rules affect everything from raising the debt ceiling to combat and climate change. NPR congressional correspondent Susan Davis is tracking all of the changes. Welcome to the studio. So what are the most significant changes? The Democrats are making here two things that Democrats are doing aimed at essentially eliminating two of the major confrontations. We saw under the Republican majority. The first is they made it a lot easier to raise the debt ceiling the nation's borrowing limit we've seen this fiscal confrontation come up in multiple times in recent years. Essentially, what House Democrats are saying now is if they just pass a budget it makes the debt ceiling race through the fiscal year..
