"Room in about four o'clock, I think it was the next day and I got a call from Fred Sanford said. I would like you to be on the ticket are life You'll be my right and I said on terribly honored, And of course, I said yes. And then after I hung up, I kind of was in a state of shock. I want my stay of people from my congressional staff was outside the office. I open the door and I said, Guess what we're making History is fascinating. That from 1996 and Debbie Walsh, you have one of those for our posters behind you because you hear her story. What stands out? Will I remember that whole period? And it wass this very interesting kind of transparent process in a funny way. I mean, we were watching on television in the evening news different, powerful high level political women going up to Minnesota to meet with Walter Mondale. And it was this kind of really public sort of interview process and there was tremendous pressure. I think on Walter Mondale from the women's political organisations, particularly the National Organization for Women in the National Women's Political Caucus of the time who are saying, this is your chance? You know this is allies on that women's vote that we had just really not seen before. May see if that gender gap can really work in your favor, and it was history making on that moment when she stepped up At the convention in San Francisco I There was that moment all of the delegates on the floor were women. The male delegates had given up their seats for the with women who were alternate so that all of the delegates on the floor that night were women. It was very exciting and thrilling moment and truly history, making What's changed since 1984 0 a lot has changed since 1984. You know, I used to be able to in 1984. I could tell you the names of all the women who are serving in Congress than I could do that pretty quickly. Ah, Now I can't there. There are a lot of them, but I was going to say to many, but there are not too many because women still make up only 23. 24% of the Members of Congress We have in the last couple of election cycles really since 2016. I think seeing an acceleration of women's political leadership first, of course, with the nomination of Hillary Clinton is the first woman nominated by a major party for president and then in 2018 in reaction in many ways to the election of 2016. We saw record numbers of women running for office but also running differently way saw. Far We've been seeing record numbers of women of color running for office. Younger women, women with Children, young Children at home and they've been running very authentically with their true everything about them sort of out there, making them far more accessible to voters are questioning 2018 was after the election, and we saw the 36 New women elected to Congress, the largest incoming house membership that we've ever seen way started to think. Well, this just be a one time deal. Or will this be the new normal and even now, in 2020 again seen record numbers of women running for the House record numbers of women nominated record numbers of women of color on DH Now? Of course, this historic moment of Kamala Harris, who will be officially than I Many of the Democratic Party for vice president this week. We'll go through some of those numbers in the House and Senate in just a moment, but some other numbers our phone lines. They're open. 2027 for 8000 are line for Republicans in 2027 for 8000. If you're a Democrat, and for Independence to 02748 8002 when you mentioned the House and the Senate, you've been putting together the statistics. So let's look at them right now, with 101 women holding seats in the House of Representatives, comprising about 23% Scent. Of the 435 members of the House representing 34 states. There are 88 Democrats and 13 Republicans. 583 file to run for the U. S House. That's up from 476. Back in 2018. As you mentioned a moment ago in the Senate, 57 women have served in the U. S. Senate 26 right now 17 or Democrats Naina Republicans for women of color and 60 have filed to run for the U. S Senate this year. That's up from 53 back in 2018. Those numbers tell you Well, it tells me that we're seeing great progress is in these election cycles, these most recent cycles, but that we're still not where we need to be, and we're also seeing a tremendous partisan. This very Republican women. Asai was saying there were 36 women newly elected women to the House. 35 of them were Democrats on Ly one new Republican woman elected in 2018. Backed Republican women lost their net loss of 10 in the House in the last cycle. This year. We're seeing record numbers of Republican women running, which we did not see in 2018. It was all driven really in 2018 by Democrats, but many of those Republican women who are running this timer running into very tough races and that partisan disparity Will prevent there from ever being really gender parity in Congress. Oren State legislators were slight state legislatures. We're seeing the same kind of numbers across the states. Much more work needs to be done on the Republican side to bring more Republican women into elective office. Let's get here from calls D is joining US. Charlotte, North Carolina Democrats line Good morning. Good morning. I'm just going to mention the league of women voters and throw the legal when voters, uh, played throughout the history of women's suffrage in this country. Rose rose Women voters in being the first to think of the presidential debate and the room of the women voters around the country in advocating for Ah government involvement. All citizens, and I wanted to mention that to you guys and have someone comment about throw over their league of women voters here. Thank you. Yeah, the legal woman voters has played a really important role in terms of the really grew up. Out of the suffrage movement on then taking and making sure that women then became full participants as voters. You know, we know that it's not that it was an overnight switch where women didn't have the right to vote, and suddenly they were voting the way they are now. Women out Vote men, now about about 10 million more women. Voted in the 2016 presidential election, then get men. So it has been a slow evolutionary process and the legal women voters has definitely been a part of that 27 for 8001 for Republicans in 2027 for 8004 Democrats Debbie Walsh is joining is she's from Rutgers University, and I want to get your reaction to what the president again was asked about yesterday.

Iowa ad spending ticks up in the last week before caucuses
"The the first caucuses political caucuses the year are in hi that's coming up within like two weeks or so the candidates have been campaigning in Iowa would you like to guess how much has been spent on political advertising in Iowa over the course of let's see the last thirteen months or so thank you think yes home ballpark okay let's say two hundred million two hundred million and I would know that that that that's how I know that that's hard not to hundred million okay but let me just back up here Iowa I'll white is not a heavily populated state I mean it it's not California it's not Texas it's not New York it's not Florida you know where you have multiple television markets TV time to buy and I white is is cheap comparatively eight eight please it would be outside of the political season it's not like if you want to advertise in California for example you got to buy time on TV stations in San Diego and Los Angeles in Sacramento and San Francisco and all these places in between you want to buy TV time in Florida you gotta buy in Miami in Orlando and you know all all along the Gulf coast in up in Jacksonville and all these different places got to do that Iowa it's it's not a good client population center the answer to my question is the estimate that by the time all is said and done candidates will have spent just on TV advertising somewhere north of sixty three million that's M. as in million dollars running commercials this is presidential candidates in Iowa over the course of the last thirteen months sixty three million dollars and that's roughly the same as that's roughly the same as before and keep in mind the vast majority that spending is going to be on the Democrat side president trump is that some advertising but but nothing big but it's all the other Democrats if the Democrats were trying to to break through they're gonna be spending sixty three million I will tell you this that there are TV and radio stations all across this country who are looking at two thousand twenty and depending on where you are they are counting on substantial political advertising by it happens every four years happens every two years now in some year if you're in some states it's not as as big a deal the candidates aren't going to be the presidential candidate for example aren't going to be spending a lot of money in Utah because president trump is going to win you call it is a heavily Republican state so you're not going to be seeing a lot of of spending on the presidential campaigns you're probably not going to be seeing a lot of heavy spending I'm on the presidential level in California because California is gonna overwhelmingly goal for whoever the Democrat nominee yes so it's your your your have maybe a little bit of spending but but not not that much in places like Pennsylvania Michigan Wisconsin and a handful Ohio and a handful of other so called swing states you're not going to be able to turn on the TV or turn on the radio and not here some add maybe it's going to be an ad by the candidates maybe it's going to be an ad by some special interest groups supporting a cause or a candidate but the air waves both radio and television are gonna be inundated with ads and the candidates are going to spend millions of dollars to do it just like the spending sixty three million to I don't know how you could spend sixty three billion dollars in Iowa and yet that's what they are doing now here's what I want to discuss with you is it going to make any difference I was having this conversation with somebody the other day and they said you know I've never I I I know who I'm going to vote for and I see the different ads and I never decided she I'm going to vote for this candidate because I saw that at I'm going to vote against this other candidate because I saw that at it they were saying you know that this this money that is being spent on the advertising I understand I I work for radio station no we we are going to be getting political advertising and that's very very welcome to the bottom line but what I want to discuss with you is the ad spending in all the ads that are out there does it work is it necessary is it over kill does it ever change your mind and is there too much of it do we need to have sixty three million dollars spent in Iowa in order to I don't know help the voters decide who it is that they want to choose at a caucus have you ever really made up your mind as to who you're going to buy who to support because of an ad our number eight five five six one six one six twenty that's the accurate mortgage talk and text line do we need all the acts

"Oh, we need to find a way to get those two bodies to be able to collaborate and make sure that we're not wasting the few tax dollars that we do have education. What is some of the other things are doing besides knocking on doors? What are some of the other kinds of vents you've been doing kind of raise awareness of your candidacy, or we have done everything from activities in the park to views events that one of the best events. We have is you was actually the youth come out to to meet the candidates. So they understand what's going on in their community and just Greek and not just certain sick minutes weather is to gain less being community to to make sure that they understand and know that we care about them, the the black community, Hispanic and Polynesian or Pacific islander community. We have very large community out here. Pacific. Islanders dead include tungsten, Samoan Hawaiian. In of ages Japanese and so forth, so reaching out to those communities and in some very vents coming out to speak in meet people. So we can make sure they understand that we care about what they care about. Do you think that then you know, you mentioned the the low voter turnout? Do you think those numbers are going to be out this year? Yes, I think so we asked me what checking on some of the numbers she last night night before last and the million ballots are already more than fifty percent of the last mid-term. So we know a lot of folks voting and their voting early which is good. We do. We just want to see how much that is going to sway our way, and we really try to work those numbers. I think with the atmosphere allow those people who identified independent, and some sort or really going to really what makes a difference for us out here in. In Utah for them for the Democratic Party to get those voters to sway towards especially with the women. We we have a huge huge huge problem with female voting in Utah. A lot of these women as of tradition here in the coach here in Utah have always given the votes per se to their husbands. So the only person in the family that was registered to vote was the husband and whatever he decided what the wife accepted. So we have literally two hundred eighty thousand women who are eligible to vote who are not registered to vote. So we're hoping that we can get some of those ones to show up in vote and vote for Democrats. I saw that you were endorsed by the LDS dumbs this year, and that this was their first year of endorsing candidates. Can you talk a little bit about that? I mean, that's. Sort of uniquely Utah thing, of course, having one religious group have such a, you know, a big percentage of the citizens in this state, and then being caucus within the Democratic Party at some point. And I'm not exactly sure how this occurred there became to believe and members of the church Jesus Christ latter-day saints that to be a leading man, you was a Republican. I'm not sure exactly again how that came about. But it did. So that meant that generally that was ill will towards people who were not Republicans meeting. If you was latter day saints in you was a democrat. Then though something wrong with you. I don't know if you saw it recently just a couple of days ago, the leadership of the church. Giving a mouse -ment through the Salt Lake Tribune that they would neutral on parties in that all parties had something beneficial to offer which we think is good because now, you know, hopefully, it would not continue to be a real Bajic urge to be able to say that you are LBS in that you're democrat, which is a big deal because for foot L Democrats is been a long time coming lot of hard work to get acceptance in the community as a political party in a political caucus, you know, party that didn't seem to be favorite because of whatever institutional ideas that was created user go. Anything else that you wanted to make sure we talk about what I think the biggest thing for me. That is that we really need..

"If we're going to be putting people on the highest court of the land. And here we are today how the Senate handle cysts in the Senate Republicans handle this will be a test of this time of twenty eighteen in the metoo movement. Can we do better the Senator Patty Murray on Sunday will joining us now, Susan page. She's USA today. Washington bureau chief, and she's with us today from Dallas, Susan, it's good to have you, hey, it's great to be with you. All right. So you just. Heard those two really interesting almost diametrically opposed points of view from Kellyanne, Conway and Senator Patty Murray and Kellyanne Conway saying, you can't, you know, put the entire weight of the metoo movement on judge cavenaugh shoulders. Whereas Patty Murray is saying will, in fact that's exactly why the Senate needs to handle or the Senate Judiciary committee needs to handle this moment differently than it did in nineteen ninety one. I mean, what are your thoughts? So I don't think the issue is the moot metoo movement as an entirety. In this case, I think this is a question of whether there are credible allegations against this particular supreme court nominee that will convince at least two Republican senators not to vote for his confirmation. That said, it is certainly true that the metoo movement over the past year has changed the political caucus by everyone involved about who gets heard and who gets believed. The context is so much different than it was back in nineteen Ninety-one within ADA. He'll hill hearings, which I covered for for Newsday. There is a much. Greater willingness to take seriously the allegations of women even when they're years. The allegations are in incidents that are years old and where there are not corroborating witnesses, but people are, I think, more willing now to listen. And that's why this hearing on Thursday, assuming it moves forward will be so important in persuading people who they ought to believe Somali limitation to you about that because because I think Susan's exactly, right. We've been hearing from members of both parties and possibly most notably, Republicans who wished to see judge Kavanagh confirmed that that they still never nevertheless believed that professor Ford should be heard, right? We've heard that language that women should be heard. But on the other hand, if really the issue is, are these credible allegations is being heard enough, isn't an actual, you know, independent investigation, the only way to really judge the credibility of the allegations? Well. That's up to every individual Senator and his or her conscience and what standard they believe the the nominee has to meet. You know, I think the the fact that she is being heard is going to sway a lot of people ideally, beyond all of the partisan noise, this is an earnest effort to to discover the truth, and there are a lot of outstanding questions for both of these human beings and the. And so the senators in charge of the committee believed that it can be if not definitively settled a some clarity can be brought by hearing from these two witnesses. So that's where they're going to begin and then it will be up to all of those senators. You know, I think to to Susan's point when the need a hill hearing a lot of the Democrats involved in that process have expressed regret for the way that Anita hill was treated. It was not so much of a partisan situation back then because you had Democrats and Republicans on an all-male committee. In an almost all-male Senate, really not not trading her someone who deserved to be heard and believed on her own terms. So the it is a test of this moment that we're in not whether or not he gets confirmed because that should be based on the credibility of the allegations themselves, but but how she is treated and how she, whether she is respected as someone with a story to tell and whether women are given equal voice in this process. Right?.

"We don't have enough time to go into it all, but I would say. Suffragettes spat upon they were force fed in jail. They were arrested by a democrat president named Woodrow Wilson who said he was a friend, but then he had were wha one and he's I don't have time for you and the women said, excuse us, it's our son's yeah, I get the chills when I tell them. So if you go there, what you'll see is the fight was unbelievable and women waited in line. You know, after African American men, they waited in line and then it got the vote. So we didn't get the vote till the twentieth century and men of property were voting in the seventeen hundreds. It's been a long hard climb just to get the vote, forget about it. And then after the war in the warriors of World War Two women proved that they could work and all these places. But after the war society said and literally said, women go back to the house, you cannot work. There's too many jobs for the men. And if you wanna work, there's something wrong. With you and women were given, I'm not kidding pills. If they wanted to work. What would the pills anti-anxiety pills or they had? I don't even know they had those back. Are you have too much energy takes valley of the dolls. They was written about that years ago and so yes, they gave you those. I can't remember the names of those pills anyway, everyone listening knows those Bill to calm you down. So bottom line, honestly, this is what happened to women. So thin when women started to wake up in the sixties after the happy days of the fifties and say, you know what? It's great if women want to stay home with kids and they have fulfilled, this is good. But if women want to go to the workplace to help their families, they ought to be able to end it started and I was young. It's again the matter of time and place. I was fortunate that at that period of time, I was a newly wed. I had done my thing on Wall Street, gotten shunned. So I knew when they were saying these things that they were telling the truth that there was so much prejudice and I started to watch it, watch it, watch it. And then I started to get very involved in natural whims political caucus and w, you know, all of that kind of thing, the right to choose a woman's right to choose in the early seventies became an issue. Nineteen Seventy-three was Roe v Wade. So I got caught up in it. All. I already had my family and my motivation for getting into office was I get these two little kids and I want the world to be okay. I don't want Viet nam more. I don't want any War. I don't want you know the oceans to be despoiled. I don't want my daughter not to have equal opportunity, so it kind of is the values of the family that I experienced is being a young mom and my experience of being, you know, harassed and other things. I was fortunate, I lost the one race, but after then I won every race ever since eleven races. And if you count all the primaries, like twenty four races primarily generals. So I was on my feet as an successful leader in the women's movement, the environmental the peace movement ready in the seventies, what keeps you going now you don't need to keep working with, oh, God, I don't think you for remind you welcome. What keeps me going is I'm still outraged inside. You know, I told her that in the beginning of the show, the sense of outrage that you feel when things are not going right. So I'm doing my work in different venues. I'm helping. Other people through my political action committee called pack for change, and everyone can find out about it despite going up to Barbara Boxer dot com. And I'm helping people.
