"And you know, I think, Ivanka Listen. She's out there at food drive. You know, up until the last day of working in the White House. I think that you know Jared Kushner is single mindedly working on that. I think that that would be part of Their rehabilitation. I think it's going to be at the very least, it's going to be an annoying rumor all the way up until federal qualifying closes in 2022 final, Rubio is going to be You know, it's part of why I like. I think what Rubio as I think Rubio's not attending the inauguration tomorrow. I think he's going to do stuff like that, just to keep working to keep up his trump Bonified up until he knows he's in the clear. Yeah, I would not. I would not count out Ivanka Trump if she were to run against Marco Rubio. And I think she would obviously be ah, much different candidate than Donald Trump was going into his is presidency. I think I think that would be an interesting dynamic and boy that would be some revenge against Marco Rubio for team Trump. Especially after you know Rubio voted, you know for the election certification that did not go unnoticed. I think the you know, big news with, you know, McConnell kind of. I thought, I think McConnell signal today that he's gonna support impeachment. If McConnell supports impeachment, I think he can get the 17 16 other votes. That need that He needs to get out there. He only needs to get probably convinced maybe 12 or 13, because I think you know Romney, Murkowski Collins are already there been sad, and so he's gonna get You know he's gonna get about 14 people. Rubio would probably be one of those people into will be very interesting to see what Marco Rubio does on this impeachment vote A couple of weeks. Peter Schorsch, publisher of Florida Politics, you confine him on Twitter at Peter Schorsch, FL. Peter, Thanks so much for the time tonight. We'll talk to you again next week. Okay, Ryan.

"How it feels, right. Really. It's come for you because it's been chaotic for May it, I get it, but it seems like today there isn't there hasn't been some sort of math. No controversy or staff or, you know, end of the world where I we're forgetting the confirmation done that. You know that's kind of normal business. And so it feels like Everybody is catching their their breath for that last, uh, the last push. What do your takeaways from the early voting numbers here in Florida? I think the Democrats are in a better position than how some of the pundits are doing the math. You know, it's basically what people are putting out and I want to say, like the more pundits and like consultants put data out. Onto the twitters, the less I want to believe it. I think campaigns when I see that I just want to tell them go, you know, walk door to door, Go make phone calls, etcetera. That being said, you know, there is a there's a sizable democratically the Republicans will tell you they have that many voters. Left in reserve high propensity voters and that it basically washes out and I say to that that works fine. But the polling that I have he continue to see shows that independence Our breaking rather decisively. Maybe 54 46 for Joe Biden. So if both people of both groups turn out a high level of their base, which is what they are attracted to you. No, I read today that they're talking about this being. I think the busiest election from 19 or something like that. Um, I think it goes the independence and I just I feel like Joe Biden is in a better position. That's that's the thing were watching. These returns come in from Democrats and Republicans. But of course there's a sizable number of independence in this state, and they're returning their ballots and voting early as well. And and that's where this thing is going to be decided. I think the bases of both parties are going to turn out. It's how to independence break. I do think you have to give Democrats a little bit of credit, and I think you may have seen some of my Facebook and social media joked about, you know, being down at the Trader Joe's and nobody that Eating tail is voting for Donald Trump. You know, I bet you know people have their blinders on and they they don't see the world around them. And they can't believe that anybody else is voting for Donald Trump or Joe Biden or vice versa. But that being said, I do think there is a considerable amount of bleed off from Trump, Um from establishment Republicans. I think that the the only shy voter here is not a shy trump voter. I think it's a shy Biden voter. I think it is, uh, it is women married to, um you know, get it, you know? Outspoken Republican men who are like, wait a second. I really I really am not sure about giving Trump another term. I don't feel like there's a bleed off. Their lot of that is anecdotal. But Here's a key thing that you know, I saw it from Dave Wasserman today who writes the Cook political report. The difference between 2020 2016 is that the district Poles are backing of the state polls. We're backing up the national polls. That was not the case in 16. They were all out of alignment right now. We've got, you know, localized polling that is showing one thing that backs up the steep pulling It in turn facts of those Big National League and so I think, you know, we're all said and done with all this, and I think the result turns out the way I think it's going to. We're going to see basically The system corrected itself from 16. The big numbers and polling system corrected itself from 16 and and realigned I'm joined by the publisher of Florida politics dot com. Peter Schorsch, you can follow on Twitter at Peter Schorsch F L Let's go back to 2018 for a minute, because while the polling had Gillom with a pretty substantial lead over to Santis, there was some movement that started Right up to Election Day. Very close to election day. Are we seeing any kind of movement like that anywhere right now for this presidential race? I think we're seeing the opposite right now. We're not seeing movement. The race is relatively static. Um, be honest. I pulled five legislative races. Um, I'll be honest. I cut you in on a little sneak preview. I pulled five legislative races last night in the Bay Area. Um, I'm finding the same thing again and again that Trump is underperforming 2018 2020 16 numbers. Um, you know, the one place where he looked to be doing better is Miami Dade. Um, you know, that is the one place we saw an uptick at. I looked at a pole today from well respected pollster Tom Elden on DH. It shows it basically that Trump is Outperforming his Miami Dade numbers. He's still gonna lose Miami Dade, but he's outperforming Miami Dade numbers by a couple of points. So if there's any movement, it seems to be amongst Miami Dade. Uh, Cubans and other Hispanics. But right now, like this reading like a cone from upshot in fivethirtyeight, the race seems relatively stable. Other than Biden has some pickup opportunities and there, I think they're kind of I think they're kind of stuck, You know, making the decision do they play for Georgia? Texas, etcetera or today, you know, just keep hitting the Midwest and in Florida. You know, I feel like Republicans believe that they have a shot to take in the races. You hear a lot of people right now, a lot of Republican people that you and I that you have on your show and I talked to are saying he's gonna win, but we're going to squeak out for I mean, that is the That is the conventional wisdom amongst the GOP establishment that I talk to you. This 80% turnout number from Miami Day this prediction that one of the elections officials down there said today Is that really possible? And if it is 80%? Does that mean anything for either of the campaigns like conventional wisdom would say, Okay, Joe Biden is gonna have a good night on election night..

"Bay. I'm Ryan Gorman with me this evening, James Berland er on the board and joining me on the hotline. Right now I have the publisher of Florida politics dot com. Peter Shore She can follow on Twitter at Peter Schorsch F. Ell Peter. Let's start with your thoughts on the early voting numbers and the mail in voting numbers here in the state of Florida. Oh, wow. It is. I've been following it all day it is. You know, the Democrats came in with about 450,000 vote advantage. We're told that The red wave is gonna come in starting today that Republicans were going to be lined up, ready to vote cast a ballot. I go back to something that's easy, wild probation. The she is the attended the quarterback of Trump effort here in Florida, and she said that, you know, pushing off. All of these ballots are all these all the voting to in person Voting and election day. Voting is making her job really difficult. Andi see this in different places. The rain in South Florida. We see an office and aka Lisa County closed because of a covert operator. Um, we see a couple of people arrested. In South Florida because they weren't wearing Matt and all of it taken together is it becomes harder and harder to shovel all of that into the cabin. Big numbers. You know again today most of the big counties, um sawem or in person voting on the first day than they did in person voting on the first day in 2016 Penelas. County said it's record Duval of getting close to its record. Um and so Overall, we have seen an amazing amount of not just enthusiasm but people rushing to the pole. To get their 1000, which is going to vote really well for a radio host like yourself. Do you get a call early on this election? We're going to get in 56 million votes. Early, but they'll be counted during on election day. And I think we've seen from number at 7 15 7 30. We're going to know where this race has had it. And that's gonna be huge for everyone watching across the country. That's why all eyes on election night I'm gonna be on Florida, Florida, Florida now, obviously Georgia, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, a couple other states where people will be watching the returns closely. But just the way we do things here in Florida, you might be able to get a better sense as to how this whole thing is headed. Especially because Florida is a state that you know the president really has to win and If Joe Biden if it looks like he's going to pick it off, that's going to make the president's path to 70 so much more difficulty. I'm not surprised by the enthusiasm the energy. I'm not surprised. People are voting so early in these numbers. I mean, this is a race where pretty much everybody has their mind made up. There aren't real third party options legit options this time around. Like there were in 2016 for some people, but I don't know where you like me. I am very cautious, reading too much into some of the stuff. I see a lot of pundits. I see a lot of people on social media trying to read the tea leaves reading between the lines. But when it comes to the early vote numbers and the mail in vote numbers, you know it's interesting, but I'm not making any predictions based off of that. Well, you know, I kind of made up my own mind A couple of weeks ago that I was gonna you know, I guess, like, go out on the limb a little bit more so than other folks. And if that is, if the data supported it, Um you know if it is a if I'm seeing closeness, I'm just going to say it's just too close and I can't make a call on it right now. I think one of the things that I would caution everybody on is you're going to be a lot of pundits talk about that that advantage. I talked about it The beginning they're going to say well, Democrats have cost cast more ballots and Republicans And that certainly is a backer to things that number one Republican will catch you up on that, if not exceeded by the end of Election Day. I'm still modeling it where there's gonna be more Republican. Asking about ballots and Democrats overall in this election. It just doesn't take into account. Independent voters and we don't know how obviously how they're going to vote. But, you know, work 500,000 independent voters and what what usually happens is that they go I heard they're going to move one way or the other. And so we're not going to see them splitting 50 50. We're gonna see them floating in a 60 40 Andi, I think and that's what's really going to decide this election. And I think as of right now, things can potentially changed. But I would if I had to put money on it At the moment. I would bet that independence break a little bit more toe Biden than to Trump. I think they gave Trump the benefit of the doubt, wanted to try something new back in 2016. I mean, all the data that we've seen shows Independence have grown a bit disaffected with the president over the past couple of years, especially his handling of the pandemic. But you know, that's why they play the game because who knows what could happen between now and then? To potentially change their mind? I'm joined by the publisher of Florida politics, Peter Sure she can follow on Twitter. Peter Schorsch F L. The one thing that I'm really paying close attention to is the down ballot race day. ADA because there were a couple of different things that we saw in 2016. And then in 2018. You saw these shifts towards the end of the.

"Peter Schorsch and Evan Donovan, host of battleground Florida on news Channel eight will join me as well. Right now, let's do a Corona virus outbreak Update the latest on the pandemic. Taking a look at some of the data that just came in today and usually don't get a good sense as to where the country is at an especially Florida until the middle of the week because you have the weekend reporting coming in right now, But even with that, it's very clear that cases are on the rise. Hospitalizations are on the rise, and the death toll has basically Platt toad, but at a very high level, and of course, after hospitalizations begin to go up, the depth numbers will go up a CZ. Well, there's just quite a bit of a lag between the two hopefully. You know, we've got better treatments a little bit of a better handle on the virus. So as we really start to get hit by this third wave, which is basically here in the early stages of it, hopefully the death toll. At the very least, won't be a significant as what we saw in the initial wave and then the resurgence of the virus. The second wave over the summer, But things were definitely trending in the wrong direction. In a lot of different places across the country, really Wisconsin, the Midwest right now is just getting hammered Wisconsin in particular. And I was listening to some of what Dr Scott Gottlieb had to say over the weekend. He's the former FDA administrator under the president under President Trump and see somebody that again. I frequently play what he has to say, because he has been pretty much spot on with his analysis from the very beginning of this pandemic, and I look for experts. You have a good track record of getting it right. The first piece of audio from face the nation. He was on face the nation yesterday. The first piece of audio I want to play for you involves voting and the safety of voting. This comes off of what we were talking about earlier with the record number of early in person votes that we're seeing across the state of Florida and in other states around the country. Here's what Dr Gottlieb had to say about that. You're talking to us from Connecticut. That's a state in the yellow Zone. Um, I know you plan to vote in person. But if you live in a red zone state if you live in the Midwest right now, how safe is it to go out in the miss of an epidemic? And vote. Look, I think it's I think it's possible to protect yourself. But you're gonna need to take precautions. You know the biggest risk of the settings where we let our guard down. And when you look talk to the governors about where the spreads occurring, it's occurring in congregate settings where people feel more comfortable, Ah, local Elks Club large family gathering. I think when you go out to vote, the voting places of taking precautions, there's sequencing people carefully there, cleaning The voting stations in between voters there Their lines are going to be long, but they're going to take precautions inside those settings and think when people go out to vote. If they were high quality mass, they can adequately protect themselves. The biggest risk of the settings where we're not on our guard where we let our guard down. We're not taking.

"Outrageous. Your plan politics now. There's no law and order problem in Florida. In the Tampa Bay area. Tampa and Saint Pete increased the police budgets, They gave them more money. This is what our leadership in the state is doing. Give me a break. So frustrating when I saw this because again We just laid it out for you. This no question. This is a purely political move. The governor basically said it was he wants to put everybody on record all the elected officials in the state. He wants them to take a position on this proposal one way or another before the election. This is Political gamesmanship. This is pure politics in advance of an election and we have serious problems that we need to be dealing with in the state. Right now it is out. Outrageous. All right, Felix. Thank you so much for breaking all of that down for us. Coming up in a moment. I wanna talk. Tio Peter Schorsch, publisher of Florida Politics, were going to talk about a little bit a little bit about this, and then we're also going to talk about Judge Barbara Lagoa talk about Bloomberg's money. If that could make any difference in the state, so lots still to come here on PM Tampa Bay. You know, these days, It's important to do the things that you enjoy doing a very stressful time. And especially now, with the weather getting nicer. It's nice to go outside and do some grilling, especially on the weekends..

"Peter Schorsch. You can follow on Twitter at Peter Schorsch F ell Peter, How are you? I'm good. How are you doing? Good. Thanks so much for joining us this evening, and let's start with some new poll numbers that we have in the race between Charlie Crist and Anna Paulina Luna. Lot of separation there at the moment, obviously could get closer. This is just one poll, but talk a little bit about the findings from this new state People survey. Yeah. We're doing some polling right now. Let me start off by saying we're not pulling The presidential right now, and I think that's important that people know when we're talking about pulling that we're gonna wait for the conventions to settle in. I don't believe in any of those bounces. I think that that's something from like when they nominated Roosevelt. You got about like that? I put that on the way and I'd liketo. I like Tio like kind of travel all over the states that we pulled multiple races down ballot to try and get a sense of what's going on. One of those races of Charlie Crist versus Ana. Paulina Luna. Um, you know, she knocked off Amanda Mackey. He's kind of a firebrand. A lot of attention on her to get president endorsed it. But she's running into Charlie Crist to seems to be as popular as ever. You know? Very Ah, 16 Point lead right now. This is about as big as you're going to get in that district. It only went for Hillary Clinton by four points. In 2016. But now there is a large O Biden Lee there which I think is what got national attention by needs Trump by 14 points on DH again. That's 10 points better than where that discourage ended up. Remember that he was held by Diva Jolly on, Lee. Ah! Four years ago. And so this is supposed to be a battleground. Where does not being I'm just not seeing evidence of that in Penelope's right now. If the numbers continue to come in like this one, where Charlie Crist has that significant of a lead a double digit lead. Could that then become a situation where Republicans say, you know, we've got to spread our money out around the country, and that's just not a seat that we're gonna waste a lot of time on. Yeah, Everything right now is about decisions that you know the RTC is going to make that the D Triple T is going to make, you know they believe it or not as much money as there is in politics, it is finite. There's a point you know. Places like Tampa Bay are expensive. When it comes to television. It isn't the same is trying for a battleground feet and even Southwest Florida like that primary that just got done. With a needle and Byron Donald, you know to play in Tampa, You know, at one point, I think when Alex sink and David Jolly went at each other, it was the most expensive house race ever to date would have been like $14 million during that special election that got passed by by that Georgia special election. But for this day for Napoleon alluded to knock off Chris, she would have to spend millions and millions and millions of dollars on television. I have to get that reserve on so No, I think in DC and in other places, people are looking at it. And, you know, they see a number like this and they don't see much. They don't see much to hang a hat on on if they don't see something by the time balloting starts. Which it's going to start here. Ah, ah, in about 2.5 week, you know, I think that they will move on to greener pastures, especially, you know when you're protecting of many incumbents. As the Republicans are right now there's a day have ever pretty big chessboard they gotta play with. Let's talk a little bit about when you see a gap like that in a county like Penelas, What does that mean for the top of the ticket race, the presidential race? We've also seen some numbers in Pasco County that show things a little bit closer there than they were in 2016, and and it all adds up. And this is a state where I mean, this is going to be one of, if not the crucial state Come election night. You know, I'm trying to get a sense of, you know, because Let me start off by saying I'm still really impressed with Trump's ability to be a 42 43% in a lot of people like his floor. This is not a guy who's 36 37. Impeach Nixon ony in or anything like that. His floor still in the forties, and so you know, we're really playing with margins here. I mean, we're really like we know that this race is going to get down to Is going to be decided by 100,000 or so vote on either way, And so you know, I'm just trying to get a sense of you know where our Where can we go forward is going to do very well for the Democrats. We know North quarter don't do well with Republicans. What does it look like? Some of these areas, so I pulled the 13. I pulled Pasco County, knowing that it's going to go for Trump. But I wanted Teo margins would get in there. And then I pulled Ah ah, a state Senate seat in the middle of the state that a battleground feet It should be a Republican stronghold, the plus four Republican Ah, registration advantage, but I have in that heat. I have, uh, Joe Biden up by four. And, you know, I know a lot of people going to say the poles or facing all that stuff..

I'm pulling races that were extraordinarily familiar with. And I just You can knock off. You can shave off a point or two out of each of these holes. Let's say Chris is only up by 12. Or you know that you know, Pasto is different and stuff like that. It's still bad media will bad. And, you know, David Wasserman had an interesting thread the other day from Cook political report and one thing that he's really keeping a close eye on are the local races that house races to get a better sense as to what might transpire Att, the top of the ticket and And look, you know people are going to say a lot of different things about polls and some poles or God awful. And they really taint you know the whole industry, but Overall, you know, if you look at the broader trend lines, we just don't see a lot of movement. In this race. It's been pretty consider like Biden support has generally been pretty consistent, and Trump's support has been pretty consistent. There's only so much wiggle room there. The convention's weren't going to move the meter very much, I think by and maybe got a slight bounce coming out of the Democratic convention. Trump May we got a slight bounce coming out of the Republican convention?.

We're getting closer to that. We're getting closer to election day, and we're getting closer to the reopening of schools and let's start there. With this growing battle between Hillsborough County and the D Santis administration, the governor appeared with the education commissioner today. This, of course, follows Hillsborough County School boards announcement. That they were going to delay in person learning for four weeks at the recommendation of public health officials who were advising the school board and then you have the education commissioner come out and say that that doesn't work with with us. So where does this all stand right now? Let's start off with the fact that you know the difference between what we think our traditional Republicans and what is going on with Governor and Richter. Corcoran. They have told us For over a decade. That the best government is the government closer to the people. And in this game, the Hillsborough County School board is that government is a local Cool board and they made a decision after I mean, I think that there were six public health experts. We published a poll on Friday that showed overwhelming overwhelming support or online learning at the beginning that parents were afraid. This is not just Teachers. I know there's been a lot of bookie Manning of teachers and teachers unions right now, but that people were not comfortable. They made the decision that they were going to open. His online on Lee for the first part of and Ember or Corinth. You know, I've spoken highly of him in the past, but this isn't like you. I'm Mike coming out all of a sudden against word Corcoran. You know he was there Friday he would hand delivered note saying, No. This goes against what we want. And we want the schools open. And it's this weird situation because it seems like the priority for Rhonda Francis right now that I started. We have got to get that order for to see football games. Hegel November Like we've talked more about that. We've done press conferences or we've talked about college football. I mean, you would think that You know that game is, you know the end all be all of what we have to do. And meanwhile you know, it goes back to you to find your You've heard the court. It does not want your restaurant open. Not when you're small business open. It's when I feel safe to go there and right, as is the case and let's let not let Let's focus on Disney for a second. Disney's cutting back. They're ours. People are not showing up. They're not going to Disney. They don't feel comfortable. They don't feel safe doing it yet. So you're right. I mean, and we've said this time and time again. We did Fort Wilderness. Um you know, RV, So we were like, very secluded. Um I instagrammed a picture for anybody that, you know, Want to see it. There's You know, they talk about their being like deer and such import wilderness, which is like campy resort area for Disney world. You never really see that this time. There were deer everywhere and end of the World Cup where they were there, and there were so few people in Disney world over this weekend. Other friends of ours that were there. They were taking pictures, and it felt like, you know, like a friends and family event because you know, Main Street in Disney world were so empty again. It's not about Whether or not the places open. It's whether or not we feel safe going. I opened the show this evening talking about consistency, A really Dulac thereof that we're seeing these days. You know, you've got conservatives who does rail against President Obama when he used executive orders, especially on something like immigration. But now all of a sudden, it's okay that President Trump is doing it on some issues. The tie into the economy. Certainly some measures that likely wouldn't hold up that they're probably overreach and unconstitutional. Democrats. You know, they were never really the party of state's rights until the Trump administration wanted to come in and and deal with some of the violence and chaos that we're seeing in cities across the country. There's just no consistency and then I bring it to the governor. Who time and time again During the course of this pandemic. He's made a point of leaving decisions up to counties, and sometimes that's caused problems because it's been very difficult to get the state on the same page on some major issues. All of a sudden now, when it comes to Hillsborough County, who is bringing in public health experts, all of them all. Six of them said they recommended a delay of four weeks now one of them said, Maybe you know if you were I'll change my mind on that. But right now I'm in agreement. And look, if you if you examine the numbers today in a week or two, it might make more sense, maybe to delay it by two weeks instead of four. I mean, we're trending in the right direction. But all of a sudden now that's a decision that has to be made at the state level. There's no consistency. I think it's even worse than that. Based on. You know the story we saw I think it was out of the Palm.

"And that if he didn't pull the plug was going to be an embarrassed once he heard that number 2000. That's when he decided to back off of it. And also, you know, no matter what they say about the fundraising and so forth. I know for a fact that you could still book room. At the Amelia or that they still have space at the Amelia Island Ritz Hotel, which is going to be the number one. Um, you know, donor hotel for the big time, 100,000 plus donors. They were still able to get you space there up until last week. So I just I don't think that I don't think the convention was going to get pulled off. I think Trump No, uh, you know, being the show runner that he knows when to pull the plug. I'm joined by Florida politics publisher Peter Shore she can follow on Twitter. A Peter Schorsch F L. Let's talk about some of the recent polling will start with the 2020 race for president. The Quinnipiac Poll made a lot of noise late last week showing Biden up 13. I said, if you believe That Biden's up 13 in Florida. I've got a Corona virus vaccine to Celia. Your poll the same People's survey that had a much closer race but still biting the lead. Where do you put the race as of today? So is the Quinnipiac poll. Is that the hot take of old basically like where they throw out like, you know. Oh, you think it's closed? You think its single digits. How about 13 points? Knowing that you know, no one has won Florida since 2000 but I think it's like by more than 0.1 or 1.2% or something like that from Steve Shell's got the number. I think the overall total Between you. You know, if you count all the votes have been cast for the top of about Democrats about public. I think the difference over the last decade is like 30,000 bucks, which is insane. When you consider this an end the millions of ballots cast at this point. Um, no. No one is going to in Florida by 30 points. No one's gonna win Florida by 6.5. It will probably be a 52 48. Great. I think right now. Yes, I think Biden is up. I think even people's his generous, I think. I don't think he I don't think this person Israel there. I still believe especially nowadays, especially with everything that's going on with the you know the conspiracy theories and the civil unrest. I think people are more I think some supporters are more in the closet yet as committed as they have ever been there just until I You know that phenomenon that we saw in 2015 where his people don't necessarily speak out. I'm not saying that he's going to win. Understand? In Florida. I still think that Trump is in strong shape. I think probably isn't there CNN poll that just today that showed it about a four or five points. To me, That's about where I think the race is right now. Yeah, I was surprised to see the cook political report Move Florida from toss up toe leans Democratic. I would keep it as a toss up. I think it's It's going to be a really tight race here in the state of Florida, in large part because we know the president's going to focus on Florida. This is his home state now and also because Republicans have a good infrastructure here in the state. They have so many of the leadership positions and I think that could play a big role down the road. And and I think if the election I've said this for the past, like a couple of weeks, I think of the election was held today. I think Joe Biden would probably win. I think it be a close one. But I think he probably win. But the election is not going to be all today and as we've seen throughout the course of this year When we were sitting here in January, talking about the election in November. This whole crisis wasn't even on our radar so much can change between now and then You got to take all this stuff with a grain of salt. Well, and, you know, let's forget the Africa the opposite of this, which is you know Democrats in Florida, There was Ah miamiherald story that came out this week talking about how No, The Biden campaign is disconnected. And it's not treating well, the, uh on the ground staffers better part of the coordinated campaign. I mean, that was kind of honesty was a bombshell, but it I don't like that kind of goes under reported. But basically, you know, this is a case where you've got, you know a team and they're just maybe they have all the talent in the world, but they're not able to make it work. Once the game starts, and so here we go again where the Democrats the forward Florida Democrats get their act together. Um, you know, they've been beleaguered for the last Month between the PPP alone on that, and then you know you go into you know Mickey freeze issues. You know, and then you go into this. I mean, it's not like they're running some sort of, um, you know, perfect operation here in Florida. The descent ISS approval numbers, especially his handling of the Corona virus and the president's numbers because those were included in some recent polling to did any of that surprise you both of them underwater. I'm not so sure The Santis is his underwater, as the Quinnipiac Poll said. What was that, like 20 something points under water. I don't think he's that far down with his handling of the Corona virus, But I do think likely a majority. A small majority of Floridians disapprove of his handling of everything, as opposed to those who approve of it. Where do you think that stands between two between the governor and the president? And how does that impact things come November? I actually do kind of buy in on that number just looking at some of the polling that I've seen in the street, you know, and, you know, putting that together. I mean, we've done our statewide I I actually believed the sentences in a little bit worse shape. In the polling, Um polling. Scott. I think he's in I think he's in bad shape, and nobody's really pushing a message that he's in bad shape. You know, it's just the media reporting. Um I don't know. I just I do think he's got a chance right now. Like literally, this is You know, we saw today the numbers. I mean, they cooled off a little bit. He's got Newcombe, director in new deputy. You need to move there. There were five or six take up in the governor's office over the last week. You know, Stacy Francis is back at full strength. I think if they knew a message, which is Hey, if you want the school to reopen, which is the key to everything your job, your ability to drop off before you go to work to the economy to their wellbeing, etcetera. Gotta wear math. You got to do these things got, you know, And so I think if he built a three week window here, otherwise, October is going to be, you know, Good luck. You know, with how, um so I mean, we've got there's so many critical times so many critical weak, but he's got a little bit of breathing room today that if he, uh, if he does the right thing, um we could be in better shape. Come Beginning of October. I think some of those more rural counties are actually pretty happy with how he's handled things not doing statewide mandates and things like that were talking of Florida politics publisher Peter Schorsch here on PM Tampa Bay..

"Follow on Twitter at Peter Schorsch F. L. Peter how's it going Ryan it was an amazing day I got a hair cut I saw the picture and you looked like you were in your glory very happy contents will leave how did that whole process go what was it like in the salon well it was the inner circle you know it was yet to call ahead to be let in everybody had masks they were going to let you in if you didn't have math that is why I like the option and I think you're gonna see a lot of small business owners do that what whether or not you whether or not and that's what I just just like a side point all of this is a two way street like you know people want to re open a business that doesn't mean that I'm gonna come to you and you don't want to wear a mask it doesn't mean yep you're allowed in the store and so it's like as you know people push push push to reopen if they you know it's not it's not it's I'm sorry the world does not revolve around you princess it revolves around you know it's a community and I I think that that's what a lot of people don't get it is okay if you're a little normal that the stylist though did say you know it was weird for them because you know part of their job is making people feel good and better about themselves and you know they're having no like wear masks and gloves and it's more like going to the dentist then it is going to the local barber shop now what happened with the straps on your mask she just moved them when she needed to cut that part of your hair because I figured that's that's probably what will happen if you have the customers were Massey just adjust it when you get to that part of the head and it's no big deal yeah I mean as it goes for me I wore N. ninety five mask do you want from the barber shop and then I switched over to a a lighter cloth mask you know which isn't it which is about as ideal but it doesn't you know the straps are easier to work around yeah so I I did that you have short hair there you you never attempted to either do it on your own or have your wife cut your hair I mean I'm thirty about my hair I mean I get that it's like I have this it is a it is a multi decade battle that I have thought like we lost a significant amount of territory in my late twenties it was just it was it was a bloodbath but then we tried we help yeah and we haven't given up on that line yet and so believe it or not like my hair would grow out bush here but I do like to get it you know I I wanna make sure my hair looks good on radio and so I get it I get it you end up fairly often is it almost like a superstitious thing that you think if you mess with it if you like go to somebody different or whatever you might start to lose more hair I think it has to do with the fact that I like because I'm like I'm gearing and French like and I'm getting I'm I'm forty four here to start growing in your place in line I don't know if you're used to if you if this is a courtesy you yet and I just have a wonderful stylist who doesn't mind you know all about readers get out the wax you and you know if you want the magic and that's what I really miss you know I I want to go back to my barber shop because I love going there like the guys there and everything and and also because I'm sure they could use the business right about now but I've been doing my hair on my own I I cut pretty short but I try to do my own fade and I'm so focused on mastering the fade that I feel like I need to give it a couple more weeks I wanna see if I can really get this down I don't do it barber shop quality but if you saw me it doesn't look bad it's not not a bad hair cut there are like you know giant lines or marks or chunks of hair missing or anything like that I'm trying to perfect it so I I don't know what you're doing it on my part of my product that I get the shampoo I get if I get a great long shampoo Armonk does not have a special relationship like I I would I would still sending her her gift that you would have earned had she been opened I mean with no suffering you know it was no fault of hers that she was jumping that and so you know all right I also I I I want to David jolly hair cut like I know the my hairline is gonna receive I don't need to come over so you gotta you know I don't want the little like little league things that make it look like you're trying to look I don't care what you look so I want strong yeah are you a talk or do you have conversations with your stylist you feel like you need to now not in the least right I've had a conversation with cavity and with some of her other like Holly you'll come up to me and I'll be like Hey Peter what's going on with Jeb bush and I'm just like Hey Tiffany can you leave me alone for thirty minutes and see I think I did still respect that but she doesn't so our mother's day and I'm like I'm I'm seriously this is like my only time when somebody is not going to be asking you for something tonight can I just don't have yeah I let my preferred zone out but I just feel so uncomfortable sitting there with no conversation it's just it's so awkward to me I feel like I have to talk in and say something I don't it's it's it's all me I don't think my barber would care if I didn't talk or talk or whatever but I just can't sit there in the silence I feel like they're unhappy that I'm not talking to them so it's it's a whole line of thinking that says three out like silent it's a great luxury and like we will you know like instead of going on vacation will go to like barometric chambers and you know places where there's no sensory overload and I think you just get to a point like if you're honest with people person the third class you know we'll take care of you and you'll take care of them like you know you hit them with a good tip what you're like Hey listen it's nothing personal but like my life all I do is talk on the radio all day I don't run out here please take it out and here you know there's a thirty percent yeah and I I guarantee you bill Blackley take the thirty percent if in your awkwardness over you know a few Bucks chipped and you know having a place chatty Cathy di I think you're right although I would still have to have that conversation that initial conversation with them and that's what maybe I'll just stay home and do my own hair sign up to have that conversation we're talking you should have a conversation with a lot of people in your life I said that you you know like like use that laying out your needs like that and being respectful and showing people white people here telling you you'll get to that level and it's it's a nice place to be at we're talking about Florida politics publisher Peter Schorsch I gotta tell ya I see these people whether it's on social media or on TV and they're struggling with these social distancing the self isolation self quarantine like they just can't handle not being around people I have not had any issues they there hasn't been one moment during this whole thing Reid said my god I just I really want to go out and be around people not one I am built for this moment I I am tailor made for what we're going through right now I wish I could pass along my ability to deal with that other people all right so I will say this that not but like so I'm an introverted extrovert as well so you know locking me up in my house it's been amazing a guy they throw me to the Briar patch you know I I I love it I love my wife I enjoy being around my family I love Netflix reading the federal I don't want to go out and hunt and fish and be with the fellas like I'm good people are you know after all that what I will say one of the things that struck me as I entered and it really had our own today and this is like no matter how generous you think you are terrible or whatever like when I got to that salon and there were three or four people who may have their lot it has just talked to them for the last two months you know like you know one of the people take the bus but you can't because the box is never running blood yeah thank god and it is it is definitely a tale of two pandemic I mean it is rich corona or corona and it's just I we are so pleased right now you are information workers I mean I've right work on the radio I work on the computer and yeah it's probably not I mean we it's probably even to our advantage someone happened right now all this set up yet this this set up is incredible it's just it's it's it's been really bad for some folks no absolutely I'm not talking about the financial and I'm talking about just the social aspect of it some people are just their social beings they like to be around other people engaging with other people where I'm I'm perfectly fine sitting here I do my show and you know I do whatever else I have to do and and it's just me and my dog and I'm perfectly OK with it let me ask you this will talk some politics here for a second I get the sense correct me if I'm wrong here do Republicans fully understands this unemployment system issue and how Floridians are feeling about it because it feels like they're just handing the Democrats here in the state this one where the Democrats route day in day out there on the issue talking about how things need to be fixed we need to have a special session we need to do this we need to do that and I don't hear that much from Republicans I know they they have to be careful politically because you've got a Republican governor you have a Republican senator who was the governor won a lot of these problems started to pop up but do you feel like they're not handling this as well as they could be I would I would say that if the Democrats they get their stuff together and just one on one issue this would be the issue that gets back a majority no matter what the other circumstances are I can't tell you how many emails I receive like you know I've told you about the people that email me because they read an article and then they go out and then they ask for help on an employment I can't tell you how many comments that are on the Facebook page you know I'm I I'm done with distances and it's like they're people.

L. Peter has gone this evening R. good how are you doing the card you'll get a little frustrated gotta be honest with you Jeff just got just got off the phone with the political reporter for bay news nine Greg angel and we talked about the unemployment system disaster and it's just it's really really frustrating to hear about the frustrating situation for so many Floridians who ran in desperate need of help let me start with Rick Scott who had eight years to address this website he knew it was a mass you've got a lot of people including Republicans we're basically saying it was designed to fail is he going to be held responsible at all A. he hasn't apologized for his role in all of this is kind of tried to just stay out of it and like pretend there's no disaster happening with the unemployment system that he oversaw for eight years you know we have that term starve the beast you know it's been something that I described you know the goal of keeping the scope of government perfectly small if it doesn't have been going on for thirty five years and that this is part of it and so to answer your specific question do I think that he will be held accountable now because I think that part of the people that elected him wanted him to know we we demonized kind of you know I guess welfare queens and all these bad images back in the eighties and stuff like that and then yeah so we we we demonise the welfare system but lo and behold you don't want to come as a situation like this there are no welfare queen there are there are hard working folks that have been laid off from bars and restaurants and small businesses you just need a little hands and all that you get it so no I don't think that he will be politically held accountable for a teacher gets in that editorial I think you'll be you know criticized by people like you and me but I haven't seen him ever held accountable for his you know my dearly policies that he's had since he was first elected governor I tell you what if he decides to run for president and there's every indication that that's a goal of his this is something that's gonna come up for sure no question about it and and if he does that I'll certainly be raising the issue because this is just outrageous it's one thing to not want to let people take advantage of unemployment benefits it's another thing to set up the system to fail basically and also when there are issues to just ignore them and not address them because then all of a sudden you have a crisis like this and it's just people can't get the money that they need they're in desperate need of it's outrageous and psychologically I I'm not joking when I say this is something like a logically wrong with Rick got on that I think it comes from like his child for so long you know well it's one he's one of these rich guys that was born poor and he believes he helped you get there through only through hard work and so forth and the idea that anybody would ever need a helping hand I guess it's it's like enough to much at hand it's it's like I I keep putting people in the house but I think that that's part of it just like you look at it he's not apologizing for anything now you're actually double that the doubling down and saying you know people are going to go back to work because the unemployment benefits are so good I mean that was his line last week another thing that there isn't some truth to that that's it there's a bizarre reverse incentive system right now in the you know the hospitality industry where you probably make more unemployment than you do you know waiting table but he's got something in a chat about this but I just don't think that they're going to solve them let me switch gears and let's talk about governor to Santa since his handling of the unemployment system issues because he's had two years to address it he heard the warnings Saudi audits and did nothing and you know when I talk to these reporters or even if I'm just looking at the information that we're seeing watching the communication from Tallahassee hearing the stories that people are going through right now he doesn't really appear to be all that on top of it either and his attitude sometimes can be kind of dismissive about these kinds of things it's it's I just don't think our good luck here's another guy we're gonna have to put him in on the couch that the the the forty character Blake no wonder the matter like how do you not get it when people are like I get the calls right I've written about it I told you that you know we get the calls dozens a day so I can't even imagine what it's like if you're the state agency or something like that thousands of calls I just I don't understand why like wanders into than out there with a checkbook just writing you are getting a five dollar check add to anybody they can make their way to the capital pointed that bad I mean I think it was a great angel was it Chris he's from WCTV here said I think we spent forty seven million more building the correct system that we have actually on paying out claims I'm forty Floridians and it is it just me or I don't see the urgency from the governor he says look we're we're working on it we're working on it but one thing they're not doing and this isn't something that costs money they're not communicating to the people who are in desperate need of the unemployment benefits what's going on there's a lack of communication that's adding to the frustration and that's something the governor could fix tomorrow and he hasn't done it and it just seems like it's a different approach that's being taken to this unemployment issue then you might see from him or we didn't see from him when he was dealing with a hurricane and I don't know why the communication thing is the easiest thing to fix I mean yeah I listen I've written I've written private memos to the governor's staff and in addition to you know my public writing on it that could be it's just so much easier I don't understand how they given the governor right now I you know I literally go on TV I mean there's not a TV station I wouldn't have him on right now I get a break down you know what is going on with the system listen I I think you saw it if you're talking with great beforehand you saw how many people got declared ineligible over the weekend yeah now imagine that amount for a percent you've gone weeks with no answer and then all of a sudden over the weekend you're found out to be ineligible whatever that means and then you try to call in there I mean you want to talk about a mental health crisis like I'm blessed because my job is is still going but I can't imagine doing that to a friend of mine today I'll admit that I had a friend come over and cut my hair today I've I I I I should go to jail for violating the social distance roles but she's been out of work for he's been out of work for what six weeks now and she was like you know we were talking about this isn't like unemployment like in a week where it's like all right I'm out of work I'm gonna go pay and not pound the streets and look for another job like maybe they'll be something out there this is I can't even go out onto the streets much less pound them in pursuit of another job other than maybe going to work as an Amazon delivery person I'm joined by the publisher

L. and one of the things that bothered me in that recent conversation I just had with Greg angel from bay news nine and minus thirteen was his description of how the governor answered some questions are just blew some of his questions legitimate questions not gotcha questions legitimate questions the people need answers to I kind of blew them off and I go back to the governor's attitude and lately it seems like he just wants to Pat himself on the back and take shots at the media you know the media played the out break up too much they were to do a gloom and now he's saying today they downplayed the outbreak too much that I you know leadership throughout this whole thing is really come from the local level and it's mostly been nothing but confusion coming out of Tallahassee I I don't know what he's so celebratory I bet you Mr bush now don't you senator I I'm surprised it's not a a bumper sticker in Tallahassee right now you know if you look at how he handled like the the hurricanes and yeah and nine eleven and things like that I don't get the let them eat cake attitude I really don't I use this from boarding of numbers you know where they talk about the amount of tests when it's not you know when you're the third largest state of course you're gonna have a lot of tests right I mean it's like to be third and the number of cats I didn't get it all like I went on Twitter today a little bit of a rant and I'm like don't you guys don't have to declare victory I mean don't you know how to say you know this is my suggestion at this point listen we were supposed to have fifty thousand sixty thousand hospital fifty sixty thousand yeah we were supposed to be the next Italy people were talking about how everything matched up for a catastrophe in the state thank you to every I'm I'm I'm I'm literally going up every nurse six feet away and I'm thinking them I'm going after every ER doctor and taking them to every ambulance driver and thanking them and I'm gonna continue to do that for months thank you for saving the lives of forty nine thousand or fifty nine thousand depending on the projection Floridians and you do that for a couple weeks and and at the same time you're on the the other hand you're working on the unemployment but the idea of exactly of blaming the media for not taking it seriously a week after you were the reverse of it and it was the first Republican speaker of the house on March twelfth what is the most prominent person saying oh this is just like the flu I don't know what the deal about the reaction at I mean that is incredulous I don't get it I I gotta be honest with you I mean we watched this governor for two years and I I don't recognize did this looks much more like campaign to stamp this then governor to Santos and it's disturbing because I I liked governor to Santos I thought he was doing a solid job and I I don't know what happened during this crisis to to turn him into what we've seen let me real quick get all around opening a governor with the.

"Breaking local news this evening Tampa philanthropist David Straz has passed away at the age of seventy seven we're learning a bit more now according to his family he passed away peacefully in his sleep and so we're gonna talk to for politics publisher Peter Schorsch coming up at eight OO six we're gonna talk to him about the governor's twenty twenty the governor's budget proposal it's going to be our but are not next year and we'll ask him about David Straz as well he tweeted out Peter Schorsch about this mausoleum that the stress family has it's a one point one million dollar Tampa mausoleum or I'm assuming David stress is gonna be buried now this is from March of this year it was written by Jim Miller one in Florida politics dot com and and the reason this came out was because he was running for Maher and he had disclose it on is a financial disclosure and that was filed with the Hillsborough County supervisor of elections it's in Tampa's myrtle cemetery and we're just take a look at it I mean this is incredible crazy some of the art that's on the walls of the mausoleum is that is that like marble yeah it looks like marble that usually they're made out yeah it's incredible so again the I. breaking news this evening Tampa slant best David Strasbourg the way the age of seventy seven I want to get to some NFL related stories we know the Bucks loss of the saints thirty four seventeen over the weekend Seamus Winston four interceptions not all of them were his fault but clearly it's just it's not working with them they're going to need to move on and get new quarterback and now they fall into three and seven on the season season's over it's all about the draft pick and again finding a new quarterback because I think pretty much everybody in the cities in agreement it's time to move on from Jameis Winston so that was the box over the weekends not a lot of great there the big NFL story late last week there was a fight that broke out during a Thursday night game between the Steelers in the Browns and we weren't on the air Friday to talk about this although we were we certainly would've there was a best of show we were out Friday brown's defensive and miles Garrett hit Steelers quarterback Mason road often ahead with Rudolph helmet the ripped it off there was a little altercation and on the ground Mason route off the quarterback for the Steelers is pulling on miles Garrett's helmet Dan miles Garrett takes off Mason Rudolph helmet and eventually hits him in the head with it Garrett has received an indefinite suspension it's going to be at least through the season and the playoffs although I don't think the Browns are gonna make the playoffs and then the question is how far does it extend it to next season I think it's got to go probably at least four games at a minimum into next season make ten games overall I mean I would be okay if they went half of next season our so that'll be fourteen games I mean it was I'd never seen anything crazy but I know I like that I don't know anything about football or okay typically eat so that way they don't usually take take helmets off and hit each other with them what is the normal penalty wise to go a thing like into next season yeah I mean we've never had something like this happens or this is brand new territory that's why I think the NFL came out and said he's obviously out the rest of this season and it's indefinite suspension and the trying to figure out the final details now but the question is how much do you suspend him into next season I think you got to do a quarter of the season at a minimum which will be four games I would be okay would have to I'd be okay if they said don't hold season next year because I mean if he had connected he didn't quite connect with the crown of the helmets if he had done that if you hit Mason ruffled crown of the helmet I mean you're looking at it as a serious injury yeah now there were some people saying that he could be charged with assault that's not gonna happen in a situation like this on a football field I mean they already I think the the reporting was is that he was not facing criminal charges however when we're talking on a Friday on air one of them doing a morning show I found other cases where players had been charged with a crime not in the NFL but yeah different lease okay there's an examples in your opinion soccer matches there was a group of kids in Dearborn Michigan about six years ago who they assaulted their quarterback during the game and started beating him and they were all charged with different levels like run out thing in the major leagues here in America yeah however my point was is like that was you think about we talk about murder cases and you need premeditation you know here in Florida premeditation conforming to second so him making that move to go over to him with the helmet and hitting him in the head that was pretty darn intentional if if that'd happened outside of an if you have been seriously injured that would've been aggravated battery I mean I don't doubt okay but he the way in your the way you described or if he had been seriously injured on the field then I can understand more the talks of some kind of criminal right I don't see for what he did that wasn't what happened it's only I will say this having people that have done something like a punch someone once in the face and get that lucky Pontiac and it up killing someone yeah that could have done some damage that guy and that's like definitely now was also question as to whether or not Mason road off would would pursue a lawsuit or something like that against a miles here that was never gonna happen because then I mean you know to be able to walk into a locker room yeah again if you do something like that so but you probably did the analogies to your will you know a hockey games with people getting the fights and all that stuff I mean this was that's part of the game this was this was the most extreme that I'd ever seen on a football field yeah that was a worse I'd seen are just like whoa thirty your point Morgan that no that doesn't not gonna happen and as anyone ever been kicked out of the NFL indefinitely for anything now because I saw talk of that year whether he should just be removed can they just like kick him out I don't know I I mean they can does this warrant dance I think I have the suspension it into next year I'd be okay with a suspension for all of next season kicking him out of the NFL I think if it had gone a different way if he is really seriously hurt I'm with the crown of the helmet then I think certain case yeah in that case in this case mum not so much in my opinion they were also a couple other suspensions and all of that the other big story calling Capper neck is back in the news I don't understand the story at all I'm kind of step toward real quick he was supposed to work out for NFL teams in Atlanta on Saturday in all kinds of drama in suit no surprise look I don't know exactly what happened between calling Capper Nick in the NFL I don't know which side to believe in terms of you know there's accusations going back and forth Colin cabinets accusing the NFL of doing things to screw the whole thing up yeah I felt accusing Colin Kaepernick of doing things is to screw it all up he eventually did a work out for a handful of teams and from what I saw from scouts that were there and and the reporting that was done with the scouts had to say he show good arm strength is in good shape still a bit inaccurate that was always one of his problems with his quarterback in the NFL not the same player but let's be honest is better in the some of the players that are already in the league I would be absolutely shocked shocked if a team were taken there's just no way he's too big of a distraction look what happened at this was supposed to be just a work out for NFL teams to get back into the NFL it becomes a whole production it becomes a whole new story and it appears to me looking from the outside air and Colin Kaepernick's more concerned with making news than he is with playing football because if his goal is to play football the number one you don't do it this way you reach out to teams privately and try to do private work outs like other players still throughout the course of the season and if you have a set up like this then you just you go along with what the set up is you don't all of a sudden at the last minute switch to a different venue where you already had that kind of as a plan B. it just looks suspicious because you wanted to be public and you want people to see the work out and for there to be media availability what what's your goal here is it to be in the public eye is it make waves or is it to play football that's where I got lost in the story because I when I first got reported out it was the NFL was sending all this up I thought made no sense anybody in understand it either that's not how this typically works but then he moved to to the high school yeah because he said the NFL wanted them to sign a waiver and he didn't want to sign in there were disagreements about whether or not the media could do this or that it was a bunch of knots like it it it to me it didn't appear to be about football well he would certainly be an upgrade as I was a backup quarterback for a lot of teams including the box dolphins he could probably be the starter on the red skins be a better backup than the jets a bad this season the bears I mean you can list the number of teams were he would fit but when you're going for let's say a backup quarterback was I don't necessarily know that he's got what it takes to start this league anymore but let's just say as a backup quarterback because I certainly think he's probably more talented than some of the backups in the league you typically want any your backup quarterback somebody who's just in the background who's not making news who's there to do the work and to be prepared to playing the game starter goes down that's not what Colin Kaepernick is Colin Kaepernick's a circus and he is to blame for making this all a circus and I have no personally if I went on out I would not want him on my team based on some of the things that he's done we're in the Fidel Castro tee shirt or in the socks with police officers depicted as pigs that's when he lost me that's when this whole message this whole social justice message was thrown right out the window because he took it too far he didn't seem interested in actually debating and focusing on the issue that he was supposedly concerned about then he was taking it too inflammatory territory there was gonna lose people and there's no surprise that he is a diversified you're in this country I would not want that if Iran and it felt team especially if you're an NFL team trying to win I would want no part of any of that nonsense to imagine let's say the box you've got James once and thrown for pics that look great out there let's say the box were to bring calling happen again to see it would be it wouldn't be about football wouldn't be about winning games it would be all about calling camper dole if I'm an owner I want no part of any of that we go to Donna Brandon real quick don how are you Hey it on good I so the call did you guys watch the game on Thursday night by chance any of you yes I did actually okay you did yeah well your characters and I'm not trying to say what it was okay by any means what the what you characterized it it's like he went after the what the hell they're quarterback's name what what what the hell did go after him by that time it was broken up no no no no no you're not offense of linemen you're not offensive lineman in between him and the quarterback and a quarterback did have a helmet all right right right in the quarterback sure to.

"I'm running Gorman with me in studio Morgan lash Felix Vega and James Pearland are on the board joining us on the high line right now we have the publisher for politics dot com Peter Schorsch Peter how are you rate how about that nice it'll come back today it was it was a good game it was a little shaky at that first inning and then it was home run derby from there on out I think they have an uphill climb they they might be it's going to be interesting because tomorrow just Inver landers on short rest so you don't know how he's gonna performing typically performs well in these big moments but it's not impossible that the race could even this thing up and head back to Houston if not and if we can get back to Houston and we would not want I feel like you know what we could take out the Yankees right I mean that all wishful thinking in October twelve or master I love it the the rays do give the Yankees trouble at times although I'm not sure they have what it takes to beat them in a seven game series but it was nice to see the trop build up with that with an excited crowd today despite the fact they have the stupid start times one o'clock on on a network that some people don't even have I don't understand what baseball is down now I didn't either it was it was about I guess maybe seventy five percent full actor first page and then it gets sold up but it you know this was something it still didn't feel all the way like a a true playoff game not going rate not hitting on the rate but it was just like one o'clock on Monday and the NSA now it makes no sense that decision making in terms of when their plane some of these games let's talk some Florida politics will start with the president trip to Florida last week was there anything that stood out to you about it maybe even behind the scenes who was there who wasn't I mean the big story still remains that Florida GOP chair Joe Gregory was not there Rhonda campuses there he will have Ron Ross Stan which is well who is there who given his controversies I don't know if he wanted him on the diets with them but everybody still buzzing about the fact that Joe graders was not there and it was up got a little testy today when reporters asked Rhonda Santa's about that he said Hey don't ask me at the White House about who they invited it was a little odd for greater issue good friend of mine I think you have a more often very close the president but was not there was not invited so there's still some what is going on what what's happening with the Florida GOP there are some like kinda inside baseball dynamics that you know when it comes to political drama we might as well laid out here on PM Tampa Bay we like that stuff but there's definitely some interesting things happening between the santus and full who helped him in his campaign and help the president in his campaign in twenty sixteen and the Florida GOP can kinda lay that out for us well everybody always says that they're like this is very inside baseball I a retort may say well I'm kind of the commissioner all so I looked it up but there has been some sort of schism between law understand to his wife Casey Disentis and chief of staff James from and a variety of variety of people on the other side notably joke readers city while two quarterbacks Odyssey interested campaign trump campaign and Rick Scott's campaign and in a variety of staffers around that will understand this is made some moves to basically get better hold of a of a of a state party he believes hasn't done much ball spending a lot of money through the first part of twenty nineteen and and there's something to be said about that it's all about twenty twenty is all about getting from reelected but there's a lot of conspiracy theories out there right now people don't know why this guy I mean need to lay out somebody likes to the wild who is almost universally regarded as the best political operative in the state that takes a lot she's at Bryant Ballard's lobbying firm they're the most politically connected of the lobbying firms in DC she got separated from that firm again a lot of inside baseball but let me to contextualize it for the rest of the audience yeah what what what does it all mean what's the impact that this could have are you just think about how bad one to see if you want to talk about how bad want to see justice campaign was general election campaign those first two or three weeks yeah after he won the primary they were bad he righted the ship and it wasn't that he righted the ship a lot of that had to do with Susie what a lot of that had to do with her right in the ship you say that comprise operatives don't make the difference she's one of the like call row figures that she probably gets you a point or two in a football game and she matters that much well it was also like during the twenty sixteen campaign with president trump kellyanne Conway when she came in and I would say even Steve Bannon towards the end they made a bit of an impact well you know I mean again I'll go with row I will go with Stephanopoulos in car bill I mean the great consultants are you know they get to go on a lecture tour because they you know they are I'll give you that works better for again they're good for almost a field goal are they can win the game for you know but they will they could win the game if you cry at the field and get them into scoring position and they will the control budget they'll keep they minimize the mistakes that yeah biggest thing they minimize the mistakes they minimize the stupid things that's really what to the world and she got it four times you're done it four times in Florida for Rick Scott for Donald Trump and for Rhonda chances and several lose her and to have these problems with the Florida European number great article by market could today and political talking about trump is quote unquote pissing off a lot of the like a grab bag of constituencies Venezuelans Cubans Porter Ricans that the floor if you really work hard to get them back into the fold you add that and these little things in a state which you know thirty thousand votes to start at the top of the ballot the last time when you can't make those kind of mistakes you just want to give away those kind of boat and in issues that in those call in that close of a rate we're talking a floor politics dot com publisher Peter shore share on PM Tampa Bay the one thing that the Florida GOP has going for them is that they're going up against the Florida Democrats who never really seem to to be able to put it all together wait where does the Democratic Party in the state stand at the moment in advance of twenty twenty and how are they handling this impeachment issue which I I I think people tell you they know how this is going to play out politically I've no idea what they're talking about there's a million different ways it could go but how are they setting themselves up at the moment man it you you said it right I mean anybody that predicting this I mean this is the most unpredictable situation I can't even it's funny I'll hear people talking about twenty twenty K. right now Rubio Nike free Rick Scott you know what are they going to do that I might want it there's no way we can get past November of twenty twenty right so how can we even be thinking about twenty twenty you know it's not you know what will happen with the Florida Democrats is and hopefully this happened this is what happened in two thousand and eight and two thousand and twelve smart people will come in and take over their operation in a unified campaign people I think that you had on the show like the jail or actually Walker and they will run the democratic operation for the state and they will do well when the Florida Democrats are left to their own devices that's when you get the bill Nelson show the Alex and show it cetera and they can you know they're Lucy up pulling back the football on Charlie Brown every time I think that you know they as far as impeachment goes you know it's interesting stepping Murphy's probably you know one of the them the most hesitant yeah the Democrats yeah I mean there and even she at this point and so I think that they you know I I it's not only do they not only do they want to do this I think they have to do that or you are going to see a what you would see a lot of Democrats being primary by other Democrats if there's just no way you can get around in teaching him and still you know avoid and not a boy and avoid the air because if you don't teach them I think she would recruit candidates and some of these places to take up some of the centrist Democrats anything Marco Rubio is handled this whole thing so far because he was the **** of a lot of jokes the other day when he did the whole thing it was actually kind of joking about China and playing in the media and all the I I I I I mean it was a it was a creative answer to say hello you know I've been a long time critic Rubio and so we criticize him one more time is probably not going to do is say if you would have told me that Charlie Crist in twenty nineteen would be the more principle of the two people that ran against each other in twenty ten over Rubio I I would not believe that and I just don't know if there's anybody that looks at Craven I mean meeting rand Paul maybe Lindsey Graham because they're they're so I looked at it and here's the thing really does not reveal is not making the top GOP people happy now you know because he's trying to straddle by and play both sides and it's just not working it's it you're either the Bible first tweeting is weird he bemoans like today he was bemoaning the you know the discourse and all of acting I will give the for the work example of the kind of thing trump says what he says about for about China whether you believe it or not whether or not you think that that is a teacher or not is one that one is by four in the Senate the most hawkish critic of China exactly should have towns all over it and yet he had nothing to say he he came back with us don't you think this is I think it was worse than nothing if you have just said I don't have a comment on it or I want to learn more or whatever now would have been better than saying what he said where I think he was maybe joking and he's playing the media he's getting you guys and it was a nonsensical stupid and answer and the problem for Rubio is you'll know that he doesn't agree with any of this you know he views these issues differently from the president so when he tries to kinda weasel is way out of it it just looks pathetic and spineless well and and you know I agree with you completely I think Rubio was very well aware of of how bad the.
