"Point Zero rear its head again. That is Sean Mc fate who is a former army officer and former private military contractor author of the new rules of war. Sean thanks for joining us. Thank you very much Louisiana. Voters go to the polls this weekend to finally elect a governor. This is a runoff between the incumbent. Democrat John Bel Edwards and Republican businessman Eddy responding the racist tight and president trump is watching closely. He was actually in the state on Thursday urging Louisiana voters to elect the Republican candidate trump also so linked to the ongoing impeachment inquiry to the state's election for more. We're joined by Paul Braun State Politics reporter for member station W. R. K. F. F. in Baton Rouge Paul. Thanks for joining us for having me so John Bel Edwards. He's been governor since two thousand sixteen and he's trying to hang onto his seat seat here. He is speaking in the gubernatorial debate. And I get along well with presidents of both parties. I've done that with President Obama and with President Trump nine times. I've met with the president to discuss things like infrastructure opioid epidemic and criminal justice reform. He's considered a prime gop target and he's also pretty moderate right. That's right he has to be in a state like Louisiana not just an election years but in office as well well so to get anything done he's got to do it with. Bipartisan support. A quick couple of examples. He passed a major criminal justice reform in his first term Any raise taxes axes with the budget shortfall which he gets hit pretty hard for on the campaign trail but he's quick to remind voters that two thirds of the Republican controlled legislature voted for that. He's stanchly progun on and back in. May He signed into law one of the strictest abortion restrictions in the country that would prohibit abortions as early as six weeks. There's a lot of money. Any pouring in from Republicans as well though The Republican National Committee has spent about two million dollars and deployed sixty. Paid staffers to try to unseat at words. Tell us more about the guy. They're pulling a four and putting all of their money behind his name's Eddie responding. He's never held political office. But it's also important to note there. Responding has loaned his campaign twelve million dollars of his own money and has been really sort what of bootstrapping his campaign with his own finances. Since the beginning yeah and responding has been making this race All about trump here are his first words from the debate eight. I think the thing that I see is almost supporter of trump and what trump has done for. Our country has been phenomenal. You know we have a Democratic Party. That's going after impeachment. which is a sidetracking everything we're trying to do? On a national level we know trump was therefore a second time yesterday for a rally what has been his impact on on this race. So far I think it'd be fair to say that from his perspective. Trump is the race His first introduction to voters was in a campaign ad out on the tailgate of his truck pointing into a trump bumper sticker. He has been kind of quiet on specific policies that he didn't act as governor so he's pretty much entirely linked his campaign to president trump and his popularity in the state. You know it's a lot of people say it's not fair really to say that. The governor's races are bellwethers of the president's support because they really are are so specific to each state Edwards has been a democratic governor and a very red state as you said but is this different though because the president. Let's put so much energy into this campaign. Do you think it's hard to say at Louisiana has been trending Republican for for a while now. Governor Edwards is the only only Democratic governor in the deep South but his two thousand fifteen election was based very largely on politics and the characters who were running and now with a lot of experience under his belt. Edwards is campaigning for a second term. And I think this would be a pretty good indicator of you know how far are partisan politics have seeped into Louisiana local politics if efforts were lose his bid for reelection. Yeah here's trump on one of his visits to the state last week and Monroe and soon the people of Louisiana will head to the polls. You know I'm really here for a little different reason. It's called surly voting. You believe it that much. I like Eddie. Tell us a little bit about early voting What what have we seen so far from turn out there? Early voting has has been a big focus for the Edwards campaign in particular since they had relatively poor showing in the primary in early voting. This go around thirty one percent of early voters in early voting runoff where African American. That's an increase from twenty five percent total from the first round of voting in October. That is a huge demographic for Edwards. And if he can do well there. His chances of winning reelection are quite good but Turnout is key going back to the start of our conversation. Given Edwards record as a moderate and the fact that Louisiana state legislature is dominated by Republicans. I'm just wondering if a change in leadership would make a real difference in the lives of Louisiana residents or is this race just important because it's become a national ideological battleground. It's an interesting question I mean I think people will are quick to look to states where Republican supermajority existed in the legislature. And the governor's office Even if Edwards wins the Republicans may gain crossed the threshold into having a super majority in the legislature. Which would be I for Louisiana and that could really take the teeth out of the governor's role which has traditionally been a pretty strong role in Louisiana politics? That's Paul Bron W. R. K. F.

"With the clippers. I've been told though, they each of those guys is leery of the narrative that they joined each other like Haiti doesn't one another narrative of all he went and joined Kawai collide other one a narrative of all he went join K D L it has to be that way because they both would be going through the same. But for this game. Yeah. They don't want that narrative. Well, you can't you can't join another star. And not have that narrative that you are joining good play. And there's nothing wrong with. I mean it joining Kawai or kyri is not like joining Golden State after they want seventy three games. So I I don't think either of them should be worried about that. So, but that's what some people have told me. So we have a story this week. Rick Bucur had it a couple of different people Senate. I suggested it about two weeks ago. I said, listen, the only asset the Lakers really have is LeBron James Kyle. Kuzma, the deep second asset wave. I mean, he's a five starter on a really good team. Boston, celtics. I'm not sure he starts warriors. He doesn't start Houston. Maybe starts. So they have LeBron. But there are stories now that Jeanie Buss was so ticked off at clutch sports, Rich, Paul Braun that she considered the it was brought up. Does that shock? You the story came out. Well, we both know RIC Bucher we worked plays. I've known him for decades. He's a reporter. And we had Rick on our show yesterday to couple rob parking. And I brought up to look this hour. I've talked to people involved in this story who've denied adamantly say it is not true. I brought that up to Rick. I brought it why did you kind of bring up that? Like, usually that would be the lead, right, gene? The Lakers consider trading LeBron James, and he kind of had it down on those six seven paragraphs. But he said because it wasn't, you know, the gist of the story was that LeBron couldn't fetch that much on the market anyway. So that's why. He kind of had it lower. But my point is people are denying. That's what I've been told. But I I don't know whether it's true or not, however. I look contemplated. I mean, a lot of things have crossed people's minds. I'd hate to tell people what's the things that have crossed my mind. You know what I'm saying? Right. So, but it may be a cross their mind enough to tell them Rick told us on our radio show yesterday that he crossed her mind to the point where she asked magic and Pelinka Rapa linka does he have a no trade clause. And so that's a little young or consideration. If that's the case how about this. So for the last fifteen years, I always felt like there was LeBron. And then a bunch of good players underneath him like. Kevin durant? Obviously Kawai harden that thinking about it this way as great as Tom Brady is he just wanted to bowl. He was almost the MVP two years ago. I would absolutely trade Tom Brady for Patrick Mahomes today. Right. Without even thinking about it. I would absolutely trade Tom Brady for about five young quarterbacks in the league. There are four players in in basketball in the world right now that I would trade for over LeBron Janas Durant. Stephens I on. I would absolutely listen K D, probably too. I put him Yano. You said Durant in Zion. I would trade for them before I would trade for LeBron James. And there's by the way, I didn't put harden. And I m b I didn't m b Ted an injury history..

I think Paul Pierce said it like any any kid who grew up in LA during the of the forum at some point. It sounds like snuck in. I don't know how it held all these kids. Absolutely. You think it's a little harder to sneak into an MBA arena now, for sure, no way around that. Definitely security. Well, hopefully you're not going to have to sneak in. You're going to be signed somewhere soon and you'll be back in jersey. For me. Pointing cheer for sure. When are we getting team back in Seattle? Have you, have you ever participated in any of that locally trying to to lobby or get investors on board or whoever. It's going to be that it's going to get this thing moving again. Sure. Have. I'm copying that we team species Walla glove, like in five years, but I'm really confident that the Knicks came back. I just feel like the time before that we seen our fan base, like if the storm, the Seahawks Sounders matters, you know, we have to really team great fan base and guys coming. Never been big time actually fall in love with it, you know? So hopefully it seemed like there. Yeah, see, I got admit, I'm a little bit torn Jamal. I love Seattle. I loved going there during my Laker beat writing days. So that was two trips a year guaranteed. And I did cover Laker sonic series. I think my first year on the beat great city and we all miss it in the NBA, but I don't want them to expand feel like thirty teams as the right number. I feel like you add fifteen more players. It's just going to dilute things too much. There's already teams that just I think our unwatchable because there's just not enough talent. There's NBA level talent, but not like all star type. None of all star talent to go around, especially with guys all conglomerate a couple of cities and joining up. So I'm torn here. I wanna see basketball back and Seattle, but I feel like it's got to be a team that sadly gets moved again. We'll be. I'll be. Be the way. Could be a team in because I, I know how we felt king Louis. I'll hate to have to maintain, but you know, we'll see play out. Before let you go.

It would be its own museum. It's a series of exhibits in the museum. So it'd be things like the banana boat with with Chris Paul, Braun and Dwayne Wade or the entire emoji war on the night of the de'andre Jordan situation candidates for the you've seen everything. We have candidates for the hall of absurdities. I don't think you were involved in any of these by the way. Think about that. Not Andrew, Jordan emoji war you weren't. You weren't. Where were you in that? I wasn't there. I didn't have emoji though. So you love that blackberry. Maybe the start situation. I mean, that was so yes. Yeah, these are mostly more lighthearted ones. So yeah, that wings. Ghana was definitely not like heart. So yeah, I'll have to think about that. Yeah, yeah. All right.
