Will Democrat Senators Vote to Impeach Joe Biden?

"So the question now is, and by the way, you've got Rafael Warnock in the Senate. You've got Ilhan Omar and AOC and several other Democrats now are starting to raise concerns. So is this all just happening spontaneously? I don't think so. I don't believe so. I believe that the powers that be one Barack Hussein Obama and Susan Rice knew all along that Biden had these documents. You think they just you think the attorneys just suddenly one day they're wandering through the Biden pin center and they say, oh wow, what's this? Maybe they were looking for a menu to order Chinese takeout? And instead, they open up the drawers and there you go, there are classified documents. You think that really happened? Come on, ladies and gentlemen. I suspect it's very possible that this was the plan to remove Biden from office if the Democrats had lost the midterm elections by a tsunami. That plan had already been hatched that plan was already in the process of being put into place and shockingly when the Democrats did not lose by a massive tsunami. Well, guess what? The plan was still there. So at this point, we're looking at a couple of things. The investigations are going to happen. No doubt about it. There's a pretty good chance Biden's going to get impeached. Now the question is, will there be enough Republicans in the Senate should that happen? And again, we're a little bit, I don't want to get too far out ahead of our skis here. But if that's the case, you could have some Democrats switch sides. And vote with the Republicans to give Biden the heave hope.

Chip Lake: 'The Voters Always Make the Rules'

"Identification process. Non Republican non Democrat independent, whatever they want to call themselves. Back and forth. From your perspective, I mean, you've been in general consultant for years. You've looked at polls. I've looked at pose. How is that really going to play out? Or do we really know yet? Well, I don't know that we really know. I mean, you've heard me say a million times. You know, that, you know, in this business, the consultants don't make the rules. The candidates don't make the rules. The press doesn't make the rules. The voters always make the rules. And so what we're always trying to do is figure out what voter behavior is going to be in a particular election cycle. And, you know, I'll give you perfect example. And the general election in Georgia in the Senate race, one of the things that everybody got wrong, not just in the Senate race, but overall too. One of the things that everybody got wrong was the turnout modeling, right? I mean, going into election day, November 8th of this year, I mean, you know, we thought there would be around 4.5 million people vote. I know there were three other major candidates whose teams, you know, you had the governor, you had Stacey Abrams. You had Rafael Warnock, and I know for a fact that their teams had had voter turnout modeling somewhere in the vicinity of 4.4 to 4.7 million. And the voters of Georgia decided only 3.9 million of them wanted to show up and so it was a substantial difference. I mean, you're pulling is only as good as your modeling and everybody's modeling was incorrect. And so, you know, Doug, I think the answer to your question is we just don't know. We have to wait to see how it plays out.

"Obviously, bad news out of Georgia and I wish I could spin it. I wish I could tell you that it isn't bad news. Or isn't that bad? It's not catastrophic. I mean, even with Herschel winning, the Democrats technically still had a Senate majority, and I suppose that might have been what caused Republicans to stay home. But stay home they did. Democrats showed up. In Georgia and nearly 200,000 Republicans in Georgia, stayed home. It's really, really stunning because Georgia Republicans had one job. And the country needed those Georgia Republicans. Approximately one point 9 million Georgia Republicans voted for Herschel Walker on November 8th, approximately 1.7 million voted in this runoff. 200,000 fewer Georgia Republicans. And to a Georgia Republican who will call this show and say, well, yeah, I just couldn't pull the lever for Herschel because I just didn't show up because he wasn't a great candidate. I'd say to you, so you want Rafael Warnock? You think he's a better candidate?

How can you blame the church with abortions? That's what Rafael Warnock offers and people eat it up. I got a video. I'm a send it as soon as Nick get my message he'll send it over. You got past the Jamal Bryant in Atlanta. Talking about he needs to go and get land so the church can sell weed. This is what you get. He's the same one criticizing her she walker.

"rafael warnock" Discussed on The Breakdown with Shaun King

"Walker. I don't know what makes me happier. Knowing that Herschel Walker will never be in the United States Senate. Or knowing that Rafael Warnock will be there for the next 6 years. That's how bad Herschel Walker was and is. It's like the idea of him being a United States senator was so preposterous. And it is, it is really wild. That he almost won. Like, it's that close, that it goes to a runoff and ends up being like 51 to 48. And one and a half million people. Voted for Herschel Walker and it's like, you did what? It's so ridiculous. But I'm nothing but glad that Rafael Warnock is going to be in the United States Senate for the next 6 years. That's good for Atlanta. It's good for all of Georgia, it's good for the United States Senate to have him there. It's good for the potential outlook on the appointment of judges and other things they're in the Senate. He is important to have in the room. And so I'm just glad he'll be there. He'll have an enormous impact on his colleagues, he is a man of integrity and I'm excited that I think he'll be able to let his guard down a little bit because yesterday was actually the fourth election Rafael Warnock has had to go through in the past two years. He had a runoff and a victory two years ago for just a two year term and another runoff and a victory for this one. Now he can actually get out of campaign mode for a little bit. And think about policy and do some work. But I can't shake one underlying takeaway. And it's something that we saw with the election of Joe Biden. And it is greatly magnified in Georgia of all places. The Democratic Party would not have any power to speak of. If not for black people. If not for black voters. Rafael Warnock would not be senator in Georgia, John ossoff would not be a senator in Georgia. Black people had to show up in record numbers. And vote almost unanimously for Rafael Warnock for it to be possible. And such a thing is not expected of any other ethnic group. Almost every other ethnic group votes for Democrats and Republicans. If not, 50, 50, 60, 40, even sometimes 70, 30, but African Americans have to vote almost 100% democratic. For Rafael Warnock to win. And it's a thing that no other ethnic group is expected to do. And that is kind of working. Like if African Americans don't vote almost 100% for Joe Biden, he doesn't win. And so this almost unanimous support. Is not just expected. It is required for Democrats to win races all over the country. And yet I don't see the policy schedule. I don't see the policies coming out of the Biden administration out of the Senate. That mirror the reality that African Americans are the only reason Democrats have power. Or at the very least are the primary reason. Democrats have power. Without the unanimous support, it was 90% and above African Americans, men and women voted for Rafael Warnock yesterday. No other ethnic group was even remotely close to that. And yet I don't see the policies to match that reality. Let me unpack and explain it. I have a quick word from some of our sponsors and I'll be right back. The breakdown. What the breakdown. You know, I think what we have now is a scenario where the Democratic Party has black people in power in some really key positions. Obviously, a black woman is vice president. Black man is a senator from Georgia. Probably should be two black folk. That are the senators from Georgia. But whatever. A black man is about to be the democratic leader in the House. And I appreciate all of those things. I do. That representation, a lot of my friends fall on the side of saying, listen. Racial representation doesn't mean as much as we say it does. Like a lot of my closest friends and allies in listen, what really matters is policy. And so if we are electing black people to office and Joe Biden is appointing black people to office, but don't actually fight for policies and positions that benefit and protect black people, then what's the point? That's a huge part of my community feels that way. And I understand it. I almost agree. I almost agree that if you're not going to actually have policies that benefit black people, then it definitely reduces the impact of having black people in positions. If you're ultimately going to be supporting an agenda, that primarily helps white people, but you do it with black people in power, and that's not that's not the deal I want. I am I fall in the middle, like I am glad we have capable qualified black people in power. So I'm glad about that. But I agree with my comrades and my colleagues that it's got to be more than that and I also agree that the most important thing is the agenda. The most important thing are the policies. And now that thank you that we have a black man that is in charge of the DNC. I see the representation. And that's a breakthrough. But now we need an agenda that actually meets that representation. I hope

"Seen earlier this week 74 71 for West Texas at the moment. We've heard from Russia saying it's not considering a floor to its international oil sales as well, and that is a quick look at your market update. Let's get over to the San Francisco newsroom now in Baxter's there with the chick of global news. It all right, Paul, thank you very much. China's president Xi Jinping and Saudi Arabia where he'll take part in a regional summit with Saudi crown prince Mohammed bin Salman and other Arab leaders, Donald Trump's company has been found guilty and engaging in tax fraud over more than a decade. Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell says he does not see how Donald Trump could ever take the presidential oath of office to uphold the constitution, as he says the parts should be dismantled and they will be another day of China watching regarding COVID policy. Cases decreased day to day yesterday. Georgia, senatorial runoff election today, polls are closed. We have a full crew there to bring you the very latest, full coverage Joe Matthew, Rick Davis, and Bloomberg's Ginny Sean Zeno author of American democracy in crisis. Jeannie joins us live here. Jeannie, thank you so much. Votes are being counted. I just pulling up the map here with about 16% of the vote counted now, which is this is very, very early. Rafael Warnock with 61% of the vote, Herschel Walker 38%. It's too early to take anything from this, isn't it? It is still too early and you know what we do know going into tonight is because the early vote was so large and it favored the Democrats that Herschel Walker needs a really big, almost perfect night tonight or today. He needs to get about 60% of the vote today to overcome the Democrats advantage going in from the early vote. And you know, you look at sort of those numbers there at 1.8 million turnout, which is enormous for an early vote week, so Democrats really got their vote out early, but we do know that Republicans it's still a purple state where Republicans did really well on November 8th. We do know that if he could pull it out walker still has Republicans the math is still there to win, but it is an uphill battle. Yeah, and do we know what the turnout has been today just the people going into the poll? We know the early turnout. Yeah, the early turn at 1.8 today, what we were hearing and Joe Matthew talked to Brad raffensperger, the Secretary of State, he said they were at about 1.2 million today. You know, we'll probably get a final number, maybe tonight, maybe in the next couple days. And that's a little bit shy of what Republicans were predicting they needed or wanted. They needed something closer to like 1.61 .7 today to meet the early vote. So that's a good number for Democrats bad for Republicans, but it's still a big number for a runoff election in which this is the only only election on the ballot. So for both camps, the answer answer me this, to the GOP, why so important to the Democrats why so important? I mean, I'm in the Democrats already have the edge, right? They do. They already have the Senate, but this is a big deal for Democrats. They outspent Republicans three to one, they have gone all in on this. And the reason is because this would give Joe Biden the Democrats some breathing room in the Senate that they haven't had when they have 50 seats one person like Joe Biden likes to say can be president Joe Manchin Kristen sinema can stop all momentum. So this would give him really important breathing room. It would allow them to have the majorities on committees for subpoenas to be issued all those kinds of things, for Republicans it's really less important and we've seen that because they have an invested as much in the runoff. I think we would be talking about a very different night tonight if the Senate control hung in the balance. It doesn't, so it's a little bit less important to Republicans. Now, the macro picture, Herschel Walker, maybe by many accounts, not the strongest candidate that anybody had been put up that could be put up. Donald Trump did put him up, got him the nomination, a does this reflect if were Herschel Walker loses on Donald Trump again. It really does. These are big stakes tonight for both Joe Biden and Donald Trump, both, you know, have been not on the ground, but they have been phoning in literally and raising money, particularly Joe Biden. But you know, let's face it, Donald Trump had a horrible midterm election season. He would love to end it with the win, as you've been talking about all night, he had a not very good day today with the decision coming out of New York against the Trump organization. This would be a big boon to him, but you know, it doesn't look like at least preliminarily he's going to get that, but it would be a big win for him and also for Brian Kemp, the governor of Georgia, who has really supported Herschel Walker in the runoff. If he could pull this out against all odds with a really tough candidate, then it would show that he may have the bona fides to run for president and have some national voice himself. Jeannie, we have less than 30 seconds and I hate to ask you this question long, but does the court ruling today have any impact on Donald Trump's future? I think it does. I think it's another in a long line of losses for Donald Trump and one he doesn't need. It won't hurt him personally, but politically I think he doesn't want to come out as a loser and he lost today in court big time. And you

"Some new Intel on Rafael Warnock. Again, I just don't understand why in the world the people in Georgia are going to vote for a guy who is pro abortion. He's a communist, he tried to evict a Vietnam War veteran from the apartment building that the church owns and he ran over his ex-wife. Rafi, Robbie, what are you doing, Rafi? Don't you do that, Robbie? Don't you do that, Robbie. Oh my word, Robbie no, no, not my leg. That's terrible. A legend. So yeah, I don't get it. Why would you do that? That makes no sense to me. But the guy got the votes. He's got the votes. The folks down in Georgia. Double went down to Georgia, and now he's pastoring at the ebenezer baptist church. Who would have thought? All right,

"If this falls between or under a half percentage point, this goes to a recount. So we're going to be watching this very closely as they start counting early votes at 7 o'clock when the polls close, and we could find ourselves here tomorrow. Being perfectly honest without knowing who won yet, we just can't sell. It's too close. A runoff and then a recount show, the only people who that's actually good for in my mind is people who make money from political advertising. Talk a little bit about the cost associated with this race because they have just been astronomical. Yeah, this has been an incredibly expensive race. Advantage Warnock again, who's been out spending Herschel Walker by about two to one. According to ad impact, what his bank account is beating Herschel Walker by about three to one. So if it did come to that point, yeah, there'd be a lot more money spent. And this does not decide control of the Senate. It does, however, potentially give Democrats control of committees. And if you want to walk out for a second, that's what this really has to do with. We already know Democrats have a majority in the Senate, but if they can add one more seat. They don't have to worry as much about a guy named Joe Manchin and the committees can do what they will without a power sharing agreement with Republicans. And when you're talking about the Senate, that's a big deal. That's where the judicial nominations go. That's where other nominations for executive cabinet positions go. So Democrats really could use breathing room and a little procedural advantage here in maintaining this scene. So you know what I always love is kind of the color commentary. Like what's the feel in the state of Georgia now that you're on the ground are people excited? Are people talking about one candidate over another? Give us some feel. It's there's a lot of excitement. You might even be able to hear people on the other side of the camera here who are chanting. It's about us. They've got signs up in some cases, you've got proponents of ranked choice balloting. Everybody finds a reason to get involved in some cases, but looking at the style and the approach of both campaigns might help to answer that question. You wouldn't really know until you got here and saw them up close, how they handled media, for instance. Rafael Warnock did a half dozen events last weekend. Countless interviews.

"In Atlanta a little bit chillier than it might be normally this time of year. But I'll tell you what, David, this morning, before people went to work, we had a line around the block at the Ponce de Leon library. Much like we saw over the course of two weeks of early voting. The question is, are we going to see more lines like that later on? As both candidates try to make the case for voters to turn out and for different reasons. Rafael Warnock is afraid that everyone thinks that they want already because there's so many stories about early record voting helping Democrats, Herschel Walker is trying to put a dent in that early vote and try to get more conservative in many cases white Republicans to come out of the suburbs and make a stand on this day of the election. So Joe thus far are there any reports of any irregularities because it's not unheard of to hear of voting machines breaking down or something not opening on time? We had any reports of that. Not only have I not heard reports of irregularities I was talking to an elections worker here at the library of Ponce de Leon and he told me at one point he had to start bringing people indoors to the line was going so far around the block that police became concerned. He started to put people in overflow rooms. And he said he didn't hear one complaint as long as they were promised that they would have a chance to vote. There is a concern when you start seeing lines like that, that people might not be able to get in might not be able to have their voice heard, but he said as long as they knew they were going to get a vote, they didn't care if it was a three, four hour wait, David. That's pretty unusual. Yeah, no kidding. When did the polls close, Joe? And which parties are you going to? It's 7 o'clock tonight. So we're about halfway through the voting day right now. And it's interesting. We usually make those decisions based on how things are going. There are election night parties watch parties for both candidates here in the Atlanta area. But I won't be the first to make note of the fact that Herschel Walker's campaign kicked out invites for what they called an election night party. As opposed to a victory rally. And those kind of words are parsed pretty carefully in this line of work because they're trying to project optimism and project a win. And if you want to just come have a party you can watch TV and watch the election results that doesn't quite sound like the same thing, but we'll be following both of the candidates this evening and like to think that they're going to speak once this is called. The question is, will it be called tonight David or maybe tomorrow or beyond? And I understand you've got an important guest on for sound tonight at 5 p.m.. I'm just told you have bread raffensperger. We all know that name. You said it from the famous phone call, the perfect call with Donald Trump. He's of course running this runoff election, just like he ran the runoffs two years ago, and he is going to join us right off at the top at 5 o'clock. It's two hours at that point before the polls close, and that'll probably be the last we hear from Brad raffensperger until we get this thing settled. They've got a lot of work to do starting at 7 o'clock, including the early ballots. And again, it's just a question of how close this is to know how long we might have to wait for a result and how much counting might need to continue going into the more rural areas

"Quality, the issues in this race have been nationalized. And we have seen both candidates actually try to sort of fall in line with their national parties. So when Herschel Walker has talked about issues, he is certainly talked about them at a national context trying to tie Raphael Warnock to Joe Biden, who is a net unfavorable in the state. He's certainly leaned into cultural issues in an attempt to try to rile up the base to ensure high voter turnout. Amongst his base. And Rafael Warnock has run a campaign where he's talked about bipartisanship, so that's the local kind of angle on this that he recognizes that he's in a state where there are more conservatives than there would be in state like California and New York. For instance, but he has still huge toward party lines on social issues like abortion. And emphasize that in terms of his outreach to female 1.0489 voters in particular who may be against by the the Doc's dollar decision.. Balance So of power professor continues Gillespie, you make a on really, I Bloomberg think, interesting radio point. that it really has a lot to do with the Melissa quality of the from candidates Michigan. And we've heard a, lot of I the quality work an of extra Herschel part time Walker job serving or lunch perhaps some people at would say my lack child's of quality school.. But it But appears at least that I Raphael Warnock still has can't not afford sealed to the deal put food with Georgia on our voters table yet. Now he's. only there Daniel two years from in California fairness to him. But, what has choosing he done whether for to pay Georgia the rent or or pay to what fix the could car he to have get done to work doesn't leave us to with really much at have all put this. away Now we can't even against pay Herschel for Walker meals before. now? Hunger So I think is it's a important story to we realize can that the end strike the fact, that end it Warnock is at the feeding incumbent in America this race dot and he org does have some, brought resources to you by and feeding advantages America that came along and the ad with council having been in. the office for There's almost so two much years news now. happening He's around still the world that the we're underdog somehow. Georgia supposed to stay Democrats on top of still. That's why don't we have the launched same numbers as the Republicans big take do. So. they're It's still a daily more podcast Republicans than from there are Bloomberg Democrats in and the iHeartRadio state. And that so turns he was down the the one that volume was still of at it a disadvantage to. give That's you why some he started space raising to money think early. and started I'm west raising kosova a lot of it. Each. weekday Because I while dig it wasn't going into to be impossible one important for him to story be able to and win talk, it about was still going to be why more it difficult matters and challenging.. It wasn't Listen a foregone to conclusion that he was going to be able to hold on to this seat. I think one of the reasons why we're in the race that we're in right now has an awful lot to do with the fact that Herschel Walker proved to be a weak candidate. If, say, the second place primary finisher Gary blackhead run. I think that there is a case to arguably be made that he could have written Brian Kemp's coattails to defeating Raphael Warnock. So we are in the position where we are in because Herschel Walker just proved to be a less than ideal candidate. And Raphael Warnock was strong enough to be able to supplant that and he's been able to put in a mobilization operation that can actually go toe to toe with the Republicans mobilization operation and we'll see the fruits of that today. So ultimately it's which candidate has the least erosion in terms of the turnout of their particular base today that's going to end up being the one that wins. Professor Gillespie for those of us of a certain age is certainly excludes you, but includes me. It might be remarkable that we have two black men running for Senate from Georgia. There was a day that that would have been pretty exceptional. Is this historically significant or not? Or maybe we've made that much progress as a country. So it isn't it isn't. So I don't think it's surprising that you will see two black candidates running for statewide office like U.S. Senate in the Deep South. In fact, this is also was the case this cycle in South Carolina and this is not the first time that senator Tim Scott has faced the black democratic opponent. I mean, I think what's unusual is having the black Republican opponent there to counter. The black democratic opponent, which while still unusual, is not unprecedented. And I think it's also important to remember that when Barack Obama ran for the U.S. Senate, his eventual Republican opponent was a black man, Alan keyes. So it certainly says something about descriptive representation. It reflects in the Deep South. The demographics of the state. So when you have state that's 30% African American, if the Republicans nominate a black person, it wouldn't be unusual for the Democrats to be doing that all along because they've got a deeper venture potential candidates from which to run. I think the lesson in this contest is that these two candidates are very different from one another. And so while they may share a common racial identity and may have some experiences that are similar to one another, their approach to addressing issues generally speaking and even issues related to race are very, very different. So we would have a conversation if Herschel Walker were to win in the African American community about

Rafael Warnock is the first black senator from Georgia, either he or Republican challenger Herschel Walker will have the distinction of winning a full 6 year term. Warnock says Georgia needs people who are impatient. Content with things as they are. Who know that while we live in a great country, we can always make it greater.

Martha Zoller: The Early Voting Looks Good for Herschel Walker

"You would think that he would have done well in those red areas so that he could campaign in places like metro Atlanta and pick up some of those independent voters. If you look at the map by county, basically from I 20 south, he only ran two points behind Brian Kemp. From I 20 north, not counting the metro counties, but like when you get up into north Georgia in hall county in Dawson county and Cherokee county and union county and oconee county and Walton county, he ran like 6 points behind governor Kemp, all the rest of the counties up there he ran about four points behind. So he had a lot of work to do, but gosh, the early voting looks good, and then tomorrow they're predicting rain. So I don't know what that'll do to the turnout. But we'll just have to see. But I think we'll know fairly early how this is going to come out. Like 10 o'clock. So Martha, so people in those counties, they went and they voted for Brian Kemp, but are you saying they did not vote for rehearsal walker? Right. That's correct. Wow, any indication, I mean, has the campaign been given any indication why that is and what they need to fix that for this runoff? Well, there were roughly 200,000 voters that did not vote for Herschel Walker that voted for Brian Kemp. But the gap between walker and Warnock was only 35,000 votes. And you know, if I'm Rafael Warnock and I out my opponent four to one, and I only got 35,000 of those more, I would be unhappy about that. He knows that he's got an uphill battle both Warnock and walker. Polls are saying 52, 48, but ten years ago, we had three week runoff the last several. They've been 9 week runoffs. I don't think anybody knows what a four week runoff looks like Todd. So what I'm saying is get out the vote. It's in your polling place that you have to vote. It's not where the early voting was. Get out and vote. Don't assume your neighbor is going to do it. Get out and vote and bring your Friends and neighbors with you.

Republican Geoff Duncan Calls Herschel Walker a Terrible Candidate

"Big election day in the state of Georgia, Rafael Warnock and Herschel Walker going at it. Just about every headline I've seen is very discouraging for Republicans. And look, at the end of the day, we will know by tomorrow. Who won the day? But my concern is a very real concern. We're going to be talking with Martha Zoller from W D UN in just a little while. But my concern is about getting out the vote. Tomorrow, you're going to have bad weather, but you got to still get out, you got to go vote. Beyond that, I'm very concerned about the establishment Republicans in Georgia and whether or not they will try and sabotage the election. You say, well, Tom, what are you talking about? Well, the lieutenant governor of Georgia, a guy by the name of Jeff Duncan, is out there, and he's saying that he didn't vote for Herschel Walker. He calls Herschel Walker a terrible candidate. Take a listen. Earlier, today, CBS News congressional correspondent Nicole Killian discussed the runoff election with the lieutenant governor of Georgia. The Republican explained why he decided not to vote for fellow party member, Herschel Walker. I'm a conservative. I'm a conservative because I think it's the best way to govern. I've been a Republican a lot longer than a lot of folks. I think I've got kids probably that could articulate the conservative platform better in some of the candidates that Donald Trump and his group supported all across the country. This wasn't the right brand for republicanism. And I think Herschel Walker will probably go down as one of the worst Republican candidates in our party's history. All right, and that was not just some random Republican. That's the lieutenant governor of the state of Georgia, whose out there effectively campaigning against the party's nominee. What in the world are you folks doing in the state of Georgia?

Herschel Walker Launches Campaign Citing Raphael Warnock's Evictions

"A Herschel Walker has launched a 7 figure statewide advertising blitz highlighting Rafael Warnock's evictions of tenants at his low income housing complex and domestic violence allegations by his ex-wife. I know none of that says sexy as Herschel allegedly supporting an abortion 30 years ago, but hey, the voters get to decide one tenant featured in the ad a Vietnam War veteran slammed Rafael Warnock for taking a $7000 a month tax free housing allowance from ebenezer baptist church where Warnock serves as senior pastor and CEO even while the church's apartment complex tried to evict residents for owing as little as $28 in late rent. The TV campaign comes 8 days before the polls close.

We talked with Chris John, president and CEO of the American chemistry council, and here's what he had to say about what's at stake for the U.S. economy. The only way to prevent an economic train wreck is for Congress to act quickly. Chemicals are needed for virtually every manufacturing process in the country, including automobiles, pharmaceuticals, refining, and semiconductors to name a few. If the rail system shuts down, many chemical plants will start shutting down in a matter of days, and many other important sectors of the economy will soon follow. There is really no time to lose. Congress must step in before the strike occurs. That's why the American chemistry council, along with hundreds of other groups, are calling on policymakers in Washington to stop the rail strike now.

"Earlier today, I read a news report, and then I clicked and looked at the source documents as well. Herschel Walker doesn't even live in Georgia. Like he might have gotten a rental there. He might have a second place there or something. But literally on his tax returns for this year, he chooses his home in the Dallas area as his primary residence, and literally received a tax credit for it. The man lives in Texas. He doesn't live in Georgia. And he is running against somebody. Rafael Warnock, who was born, raised pastors a church in downtown Atlanta, lives lives in Georgia, represents Georgia to his bones. Don't choose someone to represent you. That doesn't even live in the place they're trying to represent. It's incredibly frustrating. This is what we continue to deal with when the Republican Party throws candidates out that they hope will win like they did with Doctor Oz against John fetterman in the Pennsylvania Senate race there. And truthfully, that was the primary tactic of John fetterman. John fetterman clowned him every day all day about Doctor Oz literally being from New Jersey. It's like bro, you don't live here. Stop pretending like you live in Pennsylvania. Doctor Oz, you live in New Jersey. And Herschel Walker is doing the same thing. He literally claimed a tax credit. Being a Texas resident, but he's running for office in Georgia. There are some really flimsy rules about where you have to live. I wish they were stronger than this. Because it's kind of ridiculous at this point. That hundreds of millions of dollars have been poured into this race. When one of the people running, don't even live in the place where they're running. It's outrageous, it's frustrating, like, as he has claimed Texas to be his primary state of residence. Here's a simple way to fix it. Just make it such that if you run for the United States Senate, that you have to have been a resident of that place where you filed for residency in that place and you lived in that place for, say, the previous two years. Three years, four years, something like that. Two years is nothing. Like, just make it your primary residence. I would rather it be something like 5 years. Like you've actually lived in that place, you know that place, and you are qualified because you are a long-term resident of a place. But barring that, like at least make is such that if somebody is filing with another state as their primary residence, they should not be able to run in a different state. It's just the bottom line. Herschel Walker is the embarrassment that just keeps on giving. Over and over and over again, it continues to embarrass himself. Embarrass the Republican Party and bears his family and yet it's still close. New polls have senator Rafael Warnock up by four points, which is good, but that's really within the margin of error. So this is a close close race. I want to tell you some things that you can do. If you are in Georgia or if you know anybody in Georgia or if you just care about the state of the Senate race, let me give you some action steps you can take right after this break, we'll have a quick word from one of our sponsors. I'll be right back. As soon as you get a chance, go now to Warnock for Georgia dot com. Warnock is. The word for FOR, Georgia dot com. Or if you just Google Rafael Warnock, you can scroll down and you'll see Warnock for Georgia dot com there. And when you get there, you'll see rallies that you can attend, you'll see ways that you can volunteer, and you can also donate directly to Rafael Warnock's campaign. I want to say this, I have known Raphael Warnock for over 20 years, 20 plus years, he has always been held up. I first met him when I was just an undergraduate student at morehouse. He was already a graduate with that. We were kind of pointed to to say, hey, this is who you want to be like. At that time, he was a young pastor, and he was not yet pastoring at ebenezer baptist church in Atlanta. But would be there eventually. I've seen his character, I've seen his work ethic. I know his values got trust this man. I trust his integrity, his decency, he truly deeply understands the plight of everyday people to play the working people, the plight of poor people, the plight of black folk and other people of color, the plight of marginalized people, is one of the smartest human beings that I know. We call him reverend Raphael Warnock, but we could be calling him doctor Rafael Warnock. He hasn't earned doctorate. Just a brilliant human being. And I continue to be embarrassed that the alternative is between him and Herschel Walker, who is not at all brilliant. And yet here we are, the contrast could not be clearer. And the Republican Party continues to throw out black candidates that are just trash on the hopes that people will feel okay voting for this person. Maybe because they're black and it's like, why exactly do you support her so walker? Like, that's the real question.

"To have to make the case on both sides to get the base out again. It's asking a lot of voters in Georgia. And to be fair, he did say conservative. I don't misleading is not the right word. Maybe tone deaf Rick. I don't know. Some of the criticism that Lindsey Graham is getting on Twitter that he's simply not framing this appropriately with regard to having a so called black conservative on the ballot. Yeah, look, he's being blunt and that's not the first time Lindsey Graham was ever blunt. Look, he shares duties in South Carolina with Tim Scott. You know, a conservative African American who's done incredibly well. Is this inspiration to many African Americans who want to be a Republican and want to know whether or not they'll be welcome. So he's seen firsthand how much that can benefit a party in South Carolina like it has. And there's absolutely nothing wrong with saying that if Herschel Walker can get elected, he will be an inspiration to African American conservatives, the problem is you want Herschel Walker to be an inspirational person before you say that you're going to do it because he's an African American. Or maybe he's not going to say it. Is an inspirational person. And he just happens to be African American. Well, it's really very well put Rick and that's why I had to throw this at you guys. I don't know what the next leg is in this race. But there's a lot of oppo on both sides Genie. What are we going to learn about Rafael Warnock or from here, a guy can't even imagine Herschel Walker? I know the idea that there can be more to come. We've heard enough already. You know, we don't want to hear more, but we absolutely might. And you know, Democrats response to what Lindsey Graham is saying is they don't oppose Herschel Walker because of his race, obviously they oppose his conservative values his ideals in the fact that he doesn't have the character in their mind to serve his Senate. So there is a response for them to make, but I do fear that with all of the dirt out there on walker, and we know there is some potentially unborn.

"This is not right versus wrong anymore. This is good versus evil. You can't justify evil anymore. I saw somebody tweeted abortion is a mortal sin. Literally mortal. We never talk about things in terms of spirituality anymore. Think about the race in Georgia. For me, for me, pulling the lever for Donald Trump was simple. There were a bunch of reasons why it was easy, but top of my list was the fact that he's pro life. And Hillary Clinton is pro death. Real simple. Real simple for me. If you call yourself a conservative and you pull the lever for somebody who isn't opposed to late term abortion, you are pulling a lever for evil. Well, look at Georgia. Rafael Warnock is a pastor. And he has not stated any objections to any level of abortion, including late term abortion. He's a pastor. And he's pro late term abortion. That's evil. That's evil.

RealClearPolitics is now suggesting that not only will Herschel Walker win in Georgia over radical Rafael Warnock, but the Senate is going to be 52 48 Republican majority. 52 to 48. You realize what that will feel like if that happens. I know polls we want to believe them when they're going our way. We disbelieve polls when they're not going our way. But you know, typically they would suppress the the polling to discourage voters and they're not even able to do that now. To me, if they say it's going to be close, it didn't even going to be close.

We hear him speaking about the economy and he thinks that's going to be the apes for Republicans, including in his race against Rafael Warnock, the economy is more on the minds of voters than any questions about him paying for an abortion. But right, there was that moment in the interview where Christian press is immuno. Is this your check?

Was the Roe v. Wade Ruling Bad Timing for Republicans?

"You know, when I hear somebody say, well, you know, the timing of the roe V wade decision was really bad for Republicans. Lindsey Graham said, I mean, people were mad at Lindsey Graham.

And it was asking, being asked, whether or not you favor any restriction any limitation on abortion, set by the government, this is not, this is not a hard question to answer. But it's impossible for any Democrat to answer because Democrats, I would submit, favor, late term abortion, listen to Rafael's answer, Raphael pastor Warnock's answer and tell me if you don't agree with me. Do you believe there should be any limitations on abortion set by the government and you have 60 seconds? I think that the women of this country and the women of this state woke up one summer morning and a corporate protection that they've known for 50 years. Was taken from them by an extremist, Supreme Court. There it is. Where's the non answer? There's the answer that is a no. There's no limitation. They will not say it because we all know what's true. They favor late term abortion. There's no other way to describe this.

Rafael Warnock didn't do it. You heard the interviewer in Atlanta the other night on that Georgia stage, he didn't do it. Pastor Warnock senator Warnock, do you favor any restriction at all from the government on the term of an abortion? And Raphael Warnock's answer spoke volumes. He didn't answer. Because the answer is no. The official Democrat position is there are to be no limits on abortion. And I can promise you 80, 90% of Americans find that ghastly, the Democrat position is in about the minority of about 7 or 8 percent. Well, Americans know what barbarism is. We know what evil is. We know what murder is. And taking the life of a baby in a late term abortion procedure is evil.

Krista Wagner is sipping a frozen wine watching the Georgia football game on a big outdoor screen. Wagner voted for Trump in 2016 and then Biden in 2020. If somebody's saying there's an election that was stolen before the election even happens, I really voted my conscience on that. But her flip to the Democrats that year, it wasn't permanent, like many voters both inflation and abortion are top of mind. But Wagner's voting Republican for governor, despite her opposition to the restrictive abortion law that campsite. She says the abortion law isn't a deal breaker. I'm upset with that. But I'm also really worried financially. I know that there are other states that will keep it through whatever woman who needed my help. I'd take her there. Wagner isn't voting for all the Republicans, though. I do like Warnock. So probably vote for him. That's democratic senator Rafael Warnock. His opponent is Republican Herschel Walker, the former football star. Walker has come under scrutiny for allegations of violence and most recently, reports he allegedly paid for an ex-girlfriend's abortion, despite his vocal opposition to the procedure. Even before that, some Republicans like Greg minor were hesitant about walker. This allegations against the worker. Oh, that's something I'll have to take a closer look at if it's true. That could change my mind. That's one reason something unusual is happening here. Some voters are splitting their tickets.

"Considered from NPR news. I'm Sasha Pfeiffer, and I'm Mary Louise Kelly. For the first time, the top nominees for a U.S. Senate seat from Georgia are both black men. Republican Herschel Walker, a former football star, is challenging democratic senator Raphael Warnock. When they debate each other on Friday, both will carry their experiences as black men born and raised in Georgia. Sam greenglass explains how that history informs their campaigns and their opposing views on race. It's easy to find contrast between Georgia's top two candidates for U.S. Senate. Senator Rafael Warnock supports abortion rights. Herschel Walker has called for a total ban. There's no exception in my mind I can say I believe in life. And I do it. You know what, I believe in life. Recently, walker has come under scrutiny for allegations he paid for an ex-girlfriend's abortion, despite his hard line stance as a candidate. Those accounts are now overshadowing pretty much everything else. Do whatever it takes, what say whatever they have to say because they want this seat right here. But I don't think they know that they woke up a bear. Walkers of beloved football star, but his campaign has sparked controversy from the start, including for how he talks about race. 23andMe is screwed us all up. So it don't matter about your color. A house divided can not stand, so I want us to come together. Walker says Democrats like his opponent use race to divide. Rafael Warnock is senior pastor at Martin Luther King Jr.'s church. Ebenezer baptist. He talks about dismantling systemic racism, like in the Senate floor speech about voting rights. We are witnessing right now a massive and unabashed assault on voting rights. This is Jim Crow in new clothes. The now political rivals were born just a 115 miles and 7 years apart. Both the children of poor black families who had lived in Georgia for generations. But as young adults in the 70s and 80s, they developed diverging views on race and racism that shaped their Senate campaigns today. Walker on the football field and Warnock in the church. The institution of the church is for many black communities a lifeline. It's an organizing and mobilizing space. Leah Wright rigger is a political historian at Johns Hopkins University. Certainly sports becomes a site of resistance in terms of African Americans desegregating, teams, African Americans using sports to grasp some measure of social mobility. When walker played football and track at Johnson county high school, it had only been integrated for a few years

Why Aren't People Receptive to Joe Biden?

"Heard a Democrat asked the question the other day is why are people not receptive to Joe Biden? Why is it? And again, from my perspective, I can start listing off a long list of policies and things that are said and things around. And all of those would be true. The interesting part about this is that is I think it goes back to a deeper sub level and really some of this came out in the Georgia Senate race that we're dealing with down here and the issues of truthfulness on Herschel Walker standpoint. The truthless Rafael Warnock standpoint and how the camps are handling different issues. But when I come back to this basic and I think about this for a while, this is sort of a not only just a political lesson, but a life lesson that I think we deal with is that there is such a thing as too much information. Okay, let's just start off here in this discussion. I have seen too many candidates who just get up and say, you know, they get the runs into my office and they ask a question and they share far more information than they ever should have about an issue or trying to explain if they end up getting themselves in circles. That is in one case a very much of a problem. There is such a thing as too much information. Sometimes if you're asked, do you know what time it is? You simply need to say yes or no. Not explain what time it is and how the watch works. We see this happen a great deal with individuals in public office. We see it. We're pressing columns people as well. This is, again, we're going to talk about that in a minute as well. But the other aspect of this is, again, not addressing things, just basically ignoring them. That's the other straight string, if you would, is just saying I'm not going to answer the question moving on being rude or being abrupt with press and just saying, hey, it'll go away. There is a train of thought and political world that says that if I just simply ignore it, it'll go away. Well, some cases that is true, I will say today in our heavily partisan environment, especially in some of the races that we're seeing across the country. This could be true. Now,

Dinesh Unpacks the Latest Controversial Claims About Herschel Walker

"I'm talking about the controversy involving Herschel Walker and Georgia and what should good Republicans conservatives good Christians do? Should they vote for Herschel Walker? Should they somehow say, oh no, we're not going to vote for Herschel Walker. We're just going to sit this one out, which is kind of what the left wants. They kind of know that the conservatives aren't going to vote for Rafael Warnock. And I was making the point in the last segment that this kind of abortion documentation is easily faked. Remember, this is being done by a media that has absolutely no commitment to integrity or honesty. You can't trust one thing that these people say. And I'm not just talking about The Daily Beast, you can't trust one thing and BR says of The New York Times says, these are the same people who cook up dossiers, make false allegations. They have multiple allegations against Trump oh, bounties and on and on, it goes one lie on top of another. And so this should be seen as the latest in a train of likely falsehoods and cooked up lies, and they don't hesitate to perpetrate these lies.

"Dwayne Brown. In West Virginia, governor Jim justice has signed legislation today banning most abortions, making it the second state this week to put a new ban in place, as anti abortion rights activists move quickly to reduce or eliminate access to the procedure following the Supreme Court's decision back in June overturning decades of legal precedent legalizing abortion. Governor justice says he understands there will be anger and disappointment from different sides of the issue. Many people refer to it as an abortion bill. It has come to my desk and I want to tell you right now exactly I've done exactly what I said I would do. I signed it. It's done. It is absolutely done. The West Virginia band was written to take effect immediately upon the governor's signature, it includes narrow exceptions for rape, incest, and certain medical complications. Meanwhile, Indiana's new abortion ban took effect yesterday. While Ukraine's counter offensive has dealt a major blow to Russia, NATO's chief says, the end of the war is still a long way off, as Terry Schultz reports from Brussels. NATO chief Stoltenberg says Ukraine's ability to take back its territory from invading Russian forces is extremely encouraging, but shouldn't necessarily be seen as the beginning of the end of the war. Stoltenberg tells the BBC that 20% of Ukrainian territory is still occupied, urging allies to plan on long-term military support to Kyiv. The most important thing we've got to do now is to strengthen their armed forces. We have seen how effective they are and their courage, their skills, their determination. He says Moscow's been warned not to even consider turning to its nuclear arsenal. It will have unprecedented consequences for Russia. He also says NATO is closely watching security implications of the Russia China relationship. For NPR news, I'm Terry Schultz in Brussels.

Sam greenglass reports. On Facebook, the Forsyth county Democrats wrote that they respect the right to peaceful protest.

Alex Helmut has more. The average for a gallon of regular leaded in Georgia is now $3 and 20 cents, according to triple-A. It was just three months ago when Georgia hit its record high average of $4 and 49 cents a gallon. But supply has been ratcheted up since then and demand has dropped. Triple-A says it expects demand to continue to decrease, which is typical post Labor Day. Meantime, the state suspension of the 29 cents a gallon tax on unleaded remains in effect until mid October helping keep Georgia nearly 50 cents a gallon below the national average.
