"AM a 20 NPR News and the New York conversation. It's politics with Amy Walter on the take away. Something I've been paying close attention to is how much campaigning has changed since the beginning of this pandemic. Wasn't that long ago that we were making our way through the Democratic primary, packed into town halls, followed campaign buses across frozen highways and watched candidates meet and greet voters and restaurants and state fairs. While some of these events can seem a little superficial, they also serve as a way to demonstrate momentum and excitement. Zoom rallies just don't have that same field today. We're just 2.5 months away from the election, and it doesn't feel like there's going to be a way for campaigns and candidates to return to business as usual. It's especially true when it comes to the time honored tradition of door to door campaigning campaigns rely on these efforts to hear directly from voters. Koven, 19 seems to have made that impossible. Well, not for everyone. Americans for Prosperity, a conservative organization founded by David Coke, is knocking on doors and swing states in support of Republicans running into Senate in congressional races. I spoke with President Tim Phillips about their efforts there. Dozens of groups out there doing TV ads Digital as radio ads. There's almost no grassroots involvement, person to person so Americans for Prosperity action That's what we focus on door to door, individualized texting efforts as well. Telephone efforts from local people, not some phone bank and, you know, 100 center of 1000 miles away, but local folks And our goal is to reach swing voters. The folks who we believe based on our data analysis are genuinely up for grabs in this election on these individual Senate candidates that we're supporting or at the house level two congressional level, you know, you'd think at a moment where we're in a pandemic where person to person contact now can be seen as so dangerous. You're saying that your volunteers are being that people are opening their doors and not saying Hey, this is too dangerous. I don't feel comfortable. We wondered what the response would be. We began carefully testing back in early, Jim. And now we're at full all in with both activist and staff at the doors. I've probably knocked on. I bet over the last nine weeks, Probably 30 for 3500 doors. I'm gassing up swing voters I may have had I don't know, maybe 3 to 5 or six refusals based on feeling uncomfortable. We follow all social distancing guidelines. Frankly, that's very easy to do on door to door. It's easier than almost any other. It's easier than going to Wal Mart because it's easy to ring the doorbell. Step back 6 to 8 feet onto the sidewalk, and we train our people that so when someone comes and looks through the Peephole or through the glass, you know, they see us standing back. Sometimes it depends on the state. Sometimes we have a mask on. Sometimes we have it in our hand in case they would rather comfortable with that. And as you also mentioned, you're one of the rare groups that's out there doing this. I was just reading something from Reuters about a liberal group called Progressive Turnout Project. That's suspended its canvassing effort, citing a rise in Corona virus cases, and that they were also complaints from their field staffer saying they felt unsafe. So Talk to us a little bit about the people that you employ to go door to door and their concerns about safety. We asked them upfront if they have any concerns or issues and we offer For them to be able to do telephones because we have you know, from home or from a field office that can choose where they would want to make the call. So we give them options to still be ableto make a difference because people typically are in our line of work because they want to make a difference, and so we offer them the ability to make calls. S o. They could. They can help or to write out individualized postcards to swing voters with notes that are hand written notes about why we're supporting our particular candidate. I can tell you at the doors, the vast majority, I mean, literally 99%. Do you feel comfortable? I think Americans are looking for practical, safe ways. To do what is the number one issue and people ask me you've been a lot of doors. What's the number one issue politically this year? Is this? How do I get my normal life back, but still being safe and defeating this pandemic while also realizing that shutdowns have enormous consequences, with the increases and deaths of despair that every state is showing at this point from suicides, drug overdoses. You're recognizing their frankly tough consequences as well to shut down. Do you think other groups that are like yours? Political groups who are out there trying to get their message out to voters are making a mistake by doing it virtually by just doing this through text and phone and Zoom. I think every group should do what they think is best. So I would never fill the ability to give someone else. Advice. I know what's best, right. But there's something clearly that you see as look. You could be doing this right now through text and zoom and all but you, but you all choose to go door to door. So there must be something even before the pandemic. Our polling and focus groups showed us Americans were feeling more isolated, and you know now that we're in the pandemic deep into but those those numbers air their higher and so I do think there is significant benefit. To being able, having conversations. That are a bit more intimate while still being socially distance. Obviously, we do see value in that. Are voters. Now What do they want to talk more than they did, say in 2018 or 2016 like engaged longer in conversations. We do find elevated levels of what we call completions. People who opened the door and actually, you know, talk through the questions and answer the questions and have a conversation. Here's what's happening, at least from what I'm seeing these swing voters. They feel profoundly impacted in a deeply personal way by the pandemic. The result of economic crisis and also by the racial justice and civil of people that we're seeing across the country. People in the middle are different. They are not viewing those three happenings. Through an ideological lens. Now, though, they've got to find out. Where are my kids going to school next week or not? Can I go visit my my elderly mom who is living in assisted care center it and Amy. They're more fluid. That I've ever seen. You mean more fluid on who they could vote for? Yes, yes, There's a view out there that this is a base election that everybody has an opinion of Trump for the Republicans and the Democrats. And by the way, I think that's true. I think almost everyone does have an opinion. But now Maura than I have seen it in my career, these folks, these voters in the middle there fluid, they feel profoundly impacted by all that's happening. They're paying more attention for a sustained period of time, more than they ever have, at least in my lifetime. And they do not yet know. How we're doing. They haven't decided yet. Who's doing a good job? Who's doing a bad job? Are we through this are things looking better? They haven't decided that yet. Well, Tim Phillips, I really appreciate you taking the time out of door knocking.

While some of these events can seem a little superficial. They also serve as a way to demonstrate momentum and excitement. Zoom rallies just don't have that same feel. Today we're just two and a half months away from election, and it doesn't feel like there's going to be a way for campaigns and candidates to returned business as usual. That's especially true when it comes to the time honored tradition of door-to-door campaigning. Campaigns rely on these efforts to hear directly from voters. The covid nineteen seems to have made that impossible. Well, not for everyone. Americans for prosperity, a conservative organization founded by David Coke is knocking on doors and swing states in support of Republicans running in Senate and congressional races. I spoke with AF P., President Tim Phillips about their efforts, dozens of groups out there doing TV ads, digital ads, radio ADS. There's almost no grassroots involvement person to person so Americans for Prosperity Action. That's what we focus on door to door individualized texting efforts as well. Telephone efforts from local people not some foam bank in in eight hundred center of thousand miles away. But local folks, and our goal is to reach swing voters. The folks who we believe based on our data analysis are genuinely up for grabs in this election on these individual Senate candidates that we're supporting or at the house level. The congressional level you know you think at a moment where we're in a pandemic where person to person contact now can be seen as so dangerous. You're saying that your volunteers are being that people are opening their doors and not saying, Hey, this is too dangerous. I. Don't feel comfortable doing. We wondered what the response would be. We began carefully testing back in early June. And now we're at full all in with both activists and staff at the doors I've probably knocked on I bet over the last nine weeks probably thirty, four, thirty, five, hundred doors I'm guessing swing voters I may have had I don't know maybe three to five or six refusals based on filling uncomfortable. We follow all social distancing guidelines. Frankly that's very easy to do on door to door. It's easier than almost any other easier than going to Walmart because it's easy to ring the doorbell step back six to eight feet onto the sidewalk and we train our people that so. When someone comes and looks through the peephole or through the glass, you know the see us standing back. Sometimes, it depends on the state. Sometimes, we have a mask on sometimes we have at our hand in case they would rather if accountable with that and as you also mentioned, you're one of the rare groups that's out there doing this. I, was just reading something from. Reuters. About a liberal group called Progressive Turnout Project that suspended its came at saying effort citing a rise in corona virus cases and that there were also complaints from their field staffers saying they felt unsafe. So. Talk to us a little bit about the people that you employ to go door to door and concerns about safety. We ask them up front if they have any concerns or issues, and we offer for them to be able to do telephones because we have you know from home or from field office, they can choose where they want to make the call. So we give them options to still be able to make a difference because people typically. Are In our line of work because they want to make a difference and so we offer them the ability to make calls So they can they can help or to ride out individualized postcards to swing voters with notes that are handwritten notes about why we're supporting our particular candidate and I can tell you at the doors the vast majority I mean, literally ninety nine percent do feel comfortable I think Americans are looking for practical safe ways. To do what is the number one issue when people ask me you've been a of doors what's number one issue politically this year. It's this, how do I get my normal life back but still being safe and defeating this pandemic while also realize that shutdowns having enormous consequences with the increases in deaths of despair that every state is showing at this point from suicide drug overdoses. Recognizing their frankly tough consequences as well to shutdowns. Do you think other groups that are like yours political groups who are out there trying to get their message out to voters are making a mistake by doing it virtually by just doing this through text and phone and zoom? I think every group should do what they think is best. So I would never fill the ability give someone else advice I I know what's wrong right? There's something clearly that you see as you could be doing this right now through text zoom and all, but you but you all choose to go door to door. So. There must be something even before the pandemic. Our polling and focus groups showed us. That Americans were feeling more isolated, and now that we're independent deep into those, those numbers are higher. and. So I do think there is significant benefit. To being able having conversations. That are ya bit more intimate while still being socially distance obviously, we do see value in that. Are Voters. Now, do they want to talk more than they did say in two, thousand, eighteen, twenty sixteen like engage longer in conversations. We do find elevated levels of what we call completions, people who opened the door, and actually you know talk through the questions and answer the questions and have a conversation. Here's what's happening that at least from what I'm seeing these swing voters. They feel profoundly impacted in a deeply personal way by the pandemic. The resultant economic crisis and also by the racial justice and because civil upheaval that we're seeing across the country people in the middle or different, they are not viewing those three happenings through an ideological lens. Now, although they've got to find out way on my kids going to school next week or not a can I go visit my my elderly mom who is living in assisted care center in amy they're more fluid than I've ever seen him. On who they could vote for yes. Yes. There's a view out there that this is a base election at everybody has an opinion of trump or the Republicans or the Democrats, and by the way I think that's true I think almost everyone does have an opinion. But now more than I have seen it in my career. These folks these voters in the middle there fluid that they fill profoundly impacted by all that's happening. They're paying more attention for a sustained period of time more than they ever have at least in my lifetime. And? They do not yet know. How we're doing, they haven't decided yet who's doing a good job who's doing a bad job through this are things looking better. They haven't decided that yet, and so for that reason, they're fluid because the issue in this election I believe is not any one issue. Instead, it's a broader macro level question and it's how do I get my normal life back and which of these candidates out there whether it's for president or down ballot gives me the best chance to get my normal life back. Well, Tim Phillips I really appreciate you taking the time out of. Knocking to come and chat with me. Absolutely. Hope you'll come with amy I. Hope you'll come to see this at some point for yourself.

"From Bob moon. He is here with a world and national news checkup hib Jason Carroll. Thank you, the Trump administration. Made it official today saying it will prohibit people who illegally crossed the US border with Mexico from claiming asylum as the president seeks to choke off migration from Latin America. President Trump has blamed U S asylum rules for encouraging thousands of migrants a year from Central American countries. The new rule is almost certain to be challenged in the courts. The US appeals court. Meantime blocked, the Trump administration from immediately ending the Obama era program to shield young immigrants from deportation. The court said the administration's decision to phase out the so-called dreamers program was arbitrary and would upend the lives of some seventy thousand participants each day. Two of a of the attempt to read the mood in Washington and the prospect of bipartisan compromise still appears up in the air, given President Trump's post-election mix of carrots and sticks. Bloomberg's Irv Chapman reports. One organization. It expects to see its priorities addressed as Americans for prosperity an arm of the coke brothers political enterprise, whose president Tim Phillips spoke in a Bloomberg interview.

"president tim phillips" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York

"Radio with more than two months to go until. The midterm elections political spending by both parties is on the. Rise now speaking with Bloomberg earlier this month Americans for prosperity presidents Tim Phillips explained how the coke back political, network was planning to spend its money what we're saying to them To both parties frankly as we're raising the bar if we're ever going to put this country? On the kind of trajectory to long. Term economic and broader prosperity we've got. To do that so. We've done that we're looking for candidates out there and we have a few right Ken Doyle senior editor for. Money and politics for Bloomberg government is in our Bloomberg, ninety nine one studios right here with me in Washington D C can you wrote a story that is on the Bloomberg terminal it shows a. Conservative group called one nation is spending more than any other. Organization on those Google political ads but not reporting the spending to the FCC are. They supposed to do that No not necessarily this is an interesting thing that points. Out I think that there are gaps in the reporting requirements of the and the fact that companies like Google it used to be, a, government area to regulate campaign, finance but what we've seen since the reports of Russian interference in the two thousand sixteen election are companies like, Google Facebook and Twitter getting. Involved in regulating campaign. Finance they accept political ads the ads that they are running, had? Not, been, heavily regulated by the government but the companies. Themselves sort of got into trouble over the rush episode and they said okay we're, gonna make, some corporate policies that will bring more transparency to these ads? What they found in in releasing what Google found in releasing this report just about a week ago was that, a lot of people running ads on Google. Political ads on Google are not Reporting are skirting the reporting requirements the FCC spending more than a million dollars on YouTube and other ads, on Google, and because those ads don't use what they. Call, magic words. Like vote for and vote against they're not. Required to be reported to the FCC okay so no one here is break any law no in fact this group one nation is is a very prominent conservative group. Linked very closely to the Senate leadership fund has probably the best campaign finance lawyers in the world advising them so they're not, they're looking for loopholes are breaking, the law so when. The loophole then in place is this an example of how some are saying, the law needs to catch up with how people get around the law does it need, to, be updated or people okay with this it would seem to be an argument. For that right I mean you have you now have different people involved. In regulating and it creates confusion for the public and probably you know some problems even for the for the group Veteran volved in this so but that's a whole. Other can of worms to think about opening a. Campaign. Finance law to to revisions and updates but. It. Certainly indicates, that that would be a, good thing for people to think about maybe after the next election so tell us a little bit about these ads by one nation what what, what did they. Say what are they doing the ads basically. Criticize attack democratic incumbents in key battleground, state so there's you know maybe a half dozen to a dozen states most of them with democratic incumbent senators where they're? Going to be close elections they will basically? Decide. Who controls, the Senate so the states come to mind are, Missouri? West Virginia, Wisconsin Florida these states are seeing lots of TV ads but they're also starting to see lots of digital ads including, they're basically YouTube videos I think what most The spending is on and the ads talk. About you know problematic routes on things, like taxes and border security of democratic incumbents attacks them for their votes and then praises some of the Republicans who. Are challenging for those seats and again as I said they avoid the magic words and so that's how they're skirting. If you see regulation can thank you that senior editor for money. And politics? At Bloomberg government Ken? Doyle you're listening to? Bloomberg politics policy and power, on Bloomberg radio now the US. Doesn't plan, to suspend, anymore joint military drills with South Korean forces. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis making the announcement this week we have no plan took, this time to suspend Eddie more exercises we. Will work very closely as I shared with the, secretary, of, state. And what he needs done we will certainly, do to reinforce the jet for but at this time, there is no discussion about. Further suspensions they have Appeared to make any decisions yet on these major annual drills we're, gonna learn about this and a lot more a lot to go through. Here Bloomberg, national security team, leader Bill ferries joining us. Now in our Bloomberg ninety nine one studios here in Washington Mattis says he's working with the secretary of state on this somehow. This is, on his shoulders I bring us up to speed on that. Right, so madness just gave what's become a very rare press conference for him here in Washington, I think, it's his first since since. About April when the US launched a strike on Syria and he. Talked about a whole range of issues everything from North Korea to Syria but on North Korea he. Said there's really at this point no plans to. Suspend more of these major joint exercises the US does with. South Korea And that is you know it. Can be looked at as. A sign that diplomacy really hasn't made much, progress? Since President Trump and Kim Jong met in Singapore so there's always been some lower level. Drills that go on just to ensure readiness but it's really the big drills that the US, has viewed as kind of essential for preparing for, any kind of an attack by. North Korea and North, Korean has, always seen those drills as, a practice for an invasion so is the US pressure. Campaign back on against North Korea Well it's Mattis did leave himself a little bit of an out he was asked there's there's one big exercise in particular it's. Called the Ulchi freedom guardian exercise and last year there were about eighteen thousand troops, from not just the United States but other countries involved and he was asked well you know are you going to go forward and set dates for that for next year and he said well we're not quite doing that. Yet but we don't plan on suspending more of these things This. All happens just a few days after President Trump cancelled Mike Pompeo's trip to Pyongyang, which was supposed to be happening right now, and, with citing, a lack of progress on talk so things have definitely stalled out in the? Administration is people, have, been saying that for for more, than a month now the administration is basically admitting that It remains to, be seen whether you know we get to. A point again where the relationship becomes more hostile so far President Trump. And Kim Jong. Moon seemed to continue exchanging letters and generally trying to say at least publicly nicer things about each other they'll thank you that is Bloomberg news national security team leader Bill ferries you're. Listening to Bloomberg politics policy and power.

"Political spending by both parties. Is on the rise now speaking, with Bloomberg earlier this month. Americans for prosperity presidents Tim Phillips, explained how. The coke backed political network was planning to spend its money what we're saying To them, to both. Parties frankly as we're raising the bar if we're ever going to put. This country on the kind of trajectory to long term economic and broader. Prosperity we've got to do. That so we've done that we're looking for candidates out there and we have a few right Ken Doyle senior editor. For money in politics for Bloomberg government is in, our Bloomberg ninety, nine. One studios right here with me in Washington DC can you wrote a story that is on the Bloomberg terminal it shows a conservative group. Called one nation is spending more than any other organization on. Those Google political ads but not reporting the spending to the FCC are they supposed. To do that No not necessarily this is an, interesting, thing that points out I, think that there are gaps in the reporting requirements of the FCC and the fact that companies like Google it, used to be a government. Area to regulate campaign. Finance but what we've seen since the reports of Russian interference, in? The, two thousand sixteen election are companies like Google Facebook. And Twitter getting involved in regulating campaign finance they accept political ads the ads that they. Are running have not been heavily regulated by the government but? The companies themselves sort of got into trouble over the Russia episode and they said okay we're gonna make some, corporate policies that will bring more transparency to. These ads so what they found In in releasing what Google found. In releasing this report just about a week ago was that a lot of people running ads on Google political ads on Google, are not reporting are skirting the, reporting requirements the FCC, spending more than a million dollars on YouTube and other ads on Google and, because those ads don't use what they call magic words like vote for and vote against, they're, not required to be reported to the FCC okay so no no one here. Is breaking any law Oh This, group one nation is is very. Prominent conservative group linked very closely to the Senate leadership fund has probably the best campaign finance lawyers in the world advising. Them so they're. Not they're looking for loopholes breaking. Law How about I do that with the loophole, then in place is this an. Example of how some are saying the law needs to catch up with how people get around the law does it need. To be updated. Or are people okay with this It would, seem, to be an argument for that right I mean you you have you now have different people involved in regulating and. It creates confusion for the public and probably you know some problems even for the for the groups that are involved in. This so but that's a whole other can of worms to think. About opening campaign finance law? To to to revisions? And updates but it certainly indicates, that that would might be a. Good thing, for people, to think about maybe after the next election. So tell us a little bit about these ads by one nation what what, did they say what are they doing the ads are basically criticize attack. Democratic incumbents in key battleground states so there's you know maybe? A half dozen to a dozen states most of them with democratic incumbent senators where they're going to be close elections they? Will basically decide who controls the Senate seats that come to mind Missouri West Virginia Wisconsin Florida These states are seeing lots of, tedious but they're also starting to see lots of digital ads including they're basically YouTube. Videos I think what most of the spending is on and the ads talk, about you, know problematic votes on things like taxes and border security of democratic incumbents attacks them for their, votes and then praises some of the Republicans who are challenging for. Those, again as I, said they avoid the magic. Words and so that's how they're skirting FTC. Regulation and we talk about groups. Plural and, yes your story on the Bloomberg terminal does open with the conservative group one nation as the example of how this is working, out but is it just a conservative thing or is everybody getting in on the? Outside there's a lot about side spending on both, sides you, know supporting Republicans and supporting, Democrats and they. Do they're all advised by lawyers who know where the gets in the law, are so they can if they want to avoid Reporting to the, FCC you know. A lot of the democratic groups could do the same thing and in fact, I'm sure are doing it the interesting thing With this was that there were no reports at all fire. Filed by this one, nation group and yet they we're spending a lot of money that Google was actually able to document because Google was collecting the money and then you know they had announced that. They were also doing things. In other places where they're spending on TV ads is actually millions of dollars that they've that they've really announced that they're doing it's just that they're not they're skirting, the official, reporting requirements and can we can't let you leave.
