"And we're still waiting to hear on some of those key congressional races. In New Jersey. Robert Robert Zimmerman is with us and keep a very race. I'm watching very closely as Tomlin Ascii versus Leonard Lance at the district. That's considered a strong opportunity for pickup. Votes are just only fifteen percents in and we have to really wait for the numbers to come in before you start making projections of any consequence. You don't know where they're coming from. But there were four congressional seats there that are really very important to keep an eye on and that's going to be a factor right now. So it's it's it's going to be something to watch. It's it's interesting because despite the predictions of a Blue Wave we haven't seen that many congressional seats change hands yet. But we have seen the Democrats stopped in the Senate pretty much coal. That's right now, we have let me get my Senate list out here. We have Mike Braun beating the incumbent Joe Donnelly, Mike Brown, the Republican. That's an Indiana. And we have. Marsha Blackburn in that important race in Tennessee, beating the former governor Phil Bredesen's and also in Wyoming John Barrasso holds onto his expected. Yeah, we still have Amazon in Nevada, which are very very close a one percent differential in most of the almost all the polling. That's been done at keep an eye on Texas. That's surprisingly close at this stage. For the Democrats completely. The numbers up. And I think our listeners should be aware. It doesn't report what part of the state run from rural or urban areas. You have to wait to get a larger perspective of what comes which is why that's what we're seeing in in Georgia. Probably the Atlanta votes haven't come in. Exactly. Right. And it's a it's a big win for the Republicans right now, if it if it stood the way it is. But the other race in the Senate to watch the Nevada race, of course with dean Heller and Jackie Rosen. And also, there's still the Democrats are making headway in the house races. They've gone from needing Twenty-three seats now down to twenty one winning Florida in Virginia. So there's and there's still a path in the Senate. It's just a it's a few key races. Yeah. That's that's a pretty narrow path. It is. Optimism. That's not the reality is the goal is to try to hold as much as we could in a very tough map. So a Robert what what would be the difference? If you had right now, it's fifty one to forty nine Republicans to Democrats in the Senate. What's the big difference? If it's fifty three to I'll tell you what the difference is when you had fifty one to forty nine you could reach out and make a coalition with at the time. John McCain or Lisa Murkowski, or or Susan Collins individuals senators who at times showed a desire to try to be independent try to work with you John McCain, a leader in that regard. If you get a wider wider differential becomes that much harder to form a coalition. Remember, we've never seen this level of pardons. Partisanship from Mitch McConnell and Donald Trump, and this level of ah digging their heels in on so many issues, so it's a very it's a divided country. And in many ways, it's been a very divided Senate on the on the way, Trump and McConnell of conducted themselves and our coverage Wilkins. Can you hear on ten wins wins wins?

"Marsha Blackburn and governor Phil Bredesen's Missouri's the Senate race between Senate Senator Claire mccaskill and state attorney general Josh Holly.

I know this is one Kevin talks about a little bit earlier this I'm brat versus Bamberger Virginia's seventh district. So I know this is one that people inside the White House are have been very closely watching. And as Kevin mentioned, I think with Kevin earlier span burger is the type of candidate Representative of what you know. Democrats are running a woman she has experienced with the CIA. So she has a history of serving your country that sort of theme around this candidate. But you know, I mean, it's it's looking a little close right now. You know, it's only about fifty percent of all time. But I think people in the White House right now this is a race. They're watching their refreshing their results on the Virginia election page to see how this one goes. Because if Democrats take it what they tell me, they say as a bellwether if Democrats take it, they think this could say Democrats are going to have a really good night. And we're in trouble. And we have a projection now to make actually it's Sherrod Brown. Re elected the democrat from the Senator democrat from Ohio is reelected to the Senate. Again, not a big surprise. I think most people thought this would happen at the same time to explain to me why the president went to Ohio the day before the election. I didn't quite understand that because most people thought that share Brown would win this one. Yeah. The the governor's race. There is a race. Where the president thought he could have an impact shared.

And then in Tennessee democrat, Phil Bredesen's, former governor is running against Marsha Blackburn. He's running very much to the middle very much a moderate candidate not really trying to make waves. So things are looking less. Good for the Republicans in the house. Right. Shifting to the to the house. Yeah. Things are looking bad for Republicans in the house. But Republicans are basically on the defensive in the house where as Democrats are in on the defensive in the Senate and Democrats have widened the battleground a ton, and we have to sort of put this in perspective because usually the party that's in power does worse in the midterms. That's just kind of consistent historical trend, but this year, it's kind of magnified because we have a very unpopular Republican President Donald Trump who is spurring enthusiasm and turn out all these people that were kind of devastated after twenty sixteen and said, what can I do to change something decided to run for office. And a lot of these candidates are women females from both parties are running in huge numbers. Record numbers of women are donating and record number of women are turning out. And we should note that this is already being called the year of the woman over two hundred and thirty female candidates running for the house more for the Senate and governorships.

Facing a surprising challenge from the likely. Democratic nominee Phil. Bredesen's speaking at a Nashville rally. Earlier, this, year President Trump attacked Bredesen's and tried to tie them to democratic leader Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi Wherever to get elected he do whatever Chuck and Nancy, remember the term checking in They don't want the. Wall they want open borders Greg Giraldo is Bloomberg government congressional reporter and he joins us now for more on this and other stories from our Bloomberg ninety nine one. Studios in Washington and Greg tell us about Bredesen's. He's giving. Marsha Blackburn a run for the money that's right and. Today's primaries will probably be a formality in that Marsha Blackburn is. Likely to win the Republican nomination and Phil Bredesen's the. Former governor is likely to win the democratic nomination. Tennessee is so Republican that voted for Donald Trump I twenty six percentage points in the two thousand sixteen election in the last democrat to win a Senate seat in Tennessee was guy by the name of, Al Gore back in one thousand nine hundred ninety but one democrat one democrat who has a history of success in Tennessee's Bredesen's who was elected. Governor in two thousand two and two thousand six and that's a big reason why he's pulling. Competitively against, Marsha Blackburn three months before. The election it's a it's. Unusually competitive for status Republicans Tennessee and it's going. To help determine whether Republicans cling to their narrow Senate majority now fifty one to forty nine prednisone is setting himself apart from the party a little bit he said to you it's not a religion I, don't think that Chuck Schumer doesn't like what I do I'm going to hell tell us what else he's been doing to sort of set himself. Apart from Democrats of Bredesen's first television advertisements in the general election if not is first television. Advertisement basically, looks at Cameron he says Basically that he would. Do for if you felt Donald Trump was doing something good for Tennessee he'd be with them and he. Praised the Trump administration's outreach, to the North Korean regime but he also, said that he opposes the Trump administration's tariff policy sang it would be harmful to Tennessee farmers in the. Agriculture industry and even the famous Tennessee whiskey maker, Jack Daniels so Tennessee is not a. State where you can democrat you kind of run as an ally of the National Democratic Party, needs, to have kind of an independent image and Bredesen's I mentioned has run and won statewide twice including an overwhelming reelection victory in two thousand six that was twelve years ago. But it is a, unusual midterm election year. And he has a shot at kind of keeping that seat. Or winning the seat away from the Republicans you might have to give Blackburn a narrow advantage but it's it's an unusually competitive race and I assume that, there's just tons of, money being poured into this race. By the By, the parties they're about to start I think you'll see that intensify wants to campaign begins. In earnest after the primary certainly in September and October the polls continue. To show the race close between Blackburn and Bresson I think, it'll be a magnet for a lot, of outside. Money Tennessee is not as expensive estate to air campaign, advertisements to say some other larger states with key Senate races and both candidates are going to be very well. Funded Blackburn certainly is going to be very well funded she's been in congress almost sixteen years and Bredesen's. Is going to be well, funded as well where does Tennessee fit in, the democrat democratic parties race to win over the Senate explained the different factors well the map overwhelmingly tilts. Against the Democrats so the Republicans are the defending, party and just nine of the thirty. Five Senate races in November the Democrats have to defend twenty six of them but the Democrats the Democrats also have ten states where they're defending seats seats in, states that Trump won in two thousand sixteen and so it's gonna be hard for them to defend, all those seats certainly and so they're looking. To pick off some Republican held seats in one of them is Tennessee I think it it it's sort of. Maybe ranks third overall in terms of like how winnable it is. For the Democrats to seize a seat from the Republicans the Democrats. Are looking very closely at Republican held seats Nevada an Arizona they need net gain of two seats to win the majority which is now fifty one to forty nine. Republican so if the Democrats hold all of their. Seats and win Arizona and Nevada they can barely win the majority without having to worry about. Winning Tennessee but if if if the national political, environment so favorable the Democrats they pick off Tennessee from. Their, publicans mattress brings them that's a big. Seek for them in the in the overall Senate math and we should point out this is the. Seats currently held by Senator Bob corker who is, retiring but June.

"Yes show one of those races around the country that people are watching and some conservatives republicans worried about is the one right here in our home base in nashville we're all over the place obviously rebased in nashville phil bredesen's who is the former two term governor of the state of tennessee is he's to be running against marsha blackburn and she's i don't know how long she's been a congressman has been a while he's the democrat she's the republican he claims that he's going to do what's best for tennessee if it means voting with trump then he'll do it if it means voting against trump he'll do it but as philip wegmann our friend at the washington examiner points out he spent four hundred and sixty thousand dollars bankrolling liberal democrat candidates in phillips here to chat with us about that philip how are you thanks for having me fill my pleasure so phil bredesen's has been always very good at crossing the aisle reaching across portraying himself as a businessman that's how he got elected a couple of times in the state that's red is tennessee as being a democrat well this is a different animal when you're going to washington dc especially in the senate that's controlled by chuck schumer if you're a democrat phil bredesen's shows his true colors by all this money he spent on liberal democrats hasn't he absolutely i mean it's like it's like that where your treasure is there also will your heart be and with phil bredesen this idea that he is just a centrist middle of the road kind of guy is ludicrous when you take a deep dive in the fcc records and you see that going back to the nineteen eighties i'm talking nineteen eightythree he's been making repeated and very generous donations to democrats you don't spend half a million dollars bankrolling democrat candidates if you think that you know they're okay half the time and this isn't just you know local tennessee guys this is also a group that includes you know al gore's presidential campaign bill clinton's presidential campaign for obama's presidential campaign hillary clinton's presidential campaign so he definitely was cutting a check for a lot of people who don't necessarily agree with a lot of the folks in tennessee well i mean we're talking about big big liberal type folks and he says he's not one of those people why would it be giving money to these people if.

"I believe democrats need to pound home instead of presenting the left wing mirror image of donald trump these candidates promised to get things done and dial down the partisanship former tennessee governor phil bredesen's sending the same message as he tries to flip a senate seat in tennessee are running for the senate because i have the right kind of experience the actual track record that it will take to start working across party lines to fix the mess in washington and bring jell trippy who ran doug jones winning and softspoken campaign in alabama says if he could make a generic ad for democrats to use this year that's pretty much what it would sound like it's just it's the candidates talking directly to people in saying that there's too much chaos and division in washington trippy would skip the collage of porn star headlines and he would never even mentioned donald trump the mistake is as soon as i add the word trump at the top of that the second you do it that way it's a political attack on trump and even these republicans who have their doubts and are tired and exhausted by see it as is exactly that a personal partisan attack and you're just a democrat it's a mistake in my view to join in the polarization so in a year when donald trump is dominating the conversation twenty four seven and has become so identified with chaos and division the best message for democrats and competitive seats may be to not talk about him at all mara liasson npr news washington.
