"And one of the first mostly women elected to congress. Michigan's when she. It's alot more than also noting that in Michigan Rashida Toledo won her race as well. In New Mexico last night, democrat, Deb Jalan became the first or one of the first I should say native American women elected to congress today, we all came together. And we said we still believe in the American dream in American democracy. And in hope, we still believe America stronger, when we work together, we believe diversity and representation make us great. That's New Mexico's Deb how in last night. The other native American woman to win last night was Democrats cherise David's in kansas's third district. So we're brecca tracer. I mean reflect with me on how significant this is you you were talking about that a second ago. But I think we should explore more. How for a longtime Democrats have relied even curried favor with women of color in terms of voters, but didn't necessarily make room for them in the party. In terms of actual politicians or representatives. Are you? Are you seeing that changing now? Well, it should be changing. I think it was the women in the candidates themselves who insisted that it was changing this time. I don't know that the Democratic Party infrastructure that the Democratic Party establishment was particularly keen on a lot of these candidates when they started running a lot of these women weren't taken seriously. You look at somebody like Lauren Underwood in Illinois. She ran in her primary against six white men. She's an African American nurse. I believe she's thirty to a lot of these women are also young we should talk about that. That means that they are the potential future of this party. But Laura and Underwood was certainly an underdog in her Illinois house primary race, and she wound up winning against six white men. And then last night, she won Jerez. In Illinois for a house district, Lucy MC bath. Now her her race in Georgia's sixth district is as as my knowledge at this moment still undecided, but she's in the lead by a few hundred votes. She was not somebody that the party took particularly seriously. She won her primary, and then was in was in a runoff and won her primary. So I don't know that this is indicative right now of the party having newly invested in them. I think it's indicative of the women insisting that they were going to lead the party forward in the aftermath of that two thousand sixteen election, and I hope that the party infrastructure is paying attention and looking to these women for leadership because I believe that they are the future of the party that they must be the future of the party. All right. Well, you mentioned Lauren Underwood. We have some tape from her last night. She unseated four term Republican congressman Randy Holt grin, making her the first woman of color to represent the district her district now just outside of Chicago tonight, November six twenty eighteen I. Stand before you as this communities first congresswoman elect. If that's not standing on the shoulders of giants. I don't know what is together on this night. We made history. History Underwood I should know is a registered nurse and was previously. A senior adviser in the department of health and human services under the Obama administration. And interestingly back in March, I'm seeing here she told A L dot com. She said, I'm thirty one year old black woman. I am doubted in eight of the ten conversations I have. But here's what she says. She's lured you can see it on people's faces if you exceed their expectations, something switches, and they start to respect you. But what that means for her and her team is she has to be excellent every day at everything she does because she's being underestimated and counted out, and she says we need to exceed expectations at all time that all times. That's Lauren Underwood who won her congressional race last night. Will I want to welcome into the conversation on that note, Simone Sanders? He's joining us from Washington. She's a democratic strategist and CNN contributor, Simone Sanders. Welcome to point. Hi. How are you? I'm doing. Well. So so we were just talking about Lauren Underwood and several other women who. One yesterday in will later in the hour. We'll talk about Republican women who won. But tell me about what you see in these female victories for the the future of the Democratic Party.

"Well, well, I mean, some of them are not due to defeats. But there are some people. I'm Marsha Blackburn. Won the Senate race in Tennessee. She was on EMC say Kevin Kramer who on the Senate race in North Dakota. He was on the NC. And then Ryan Castello retiring a house member as well. So big shakeup on that committee to and not necessarily because defeat some of McGraw. Graduating right Senate. And then in terms of the new members coming in as Democrats ride this this wave of several dozen editions one member is familiar to Washington DC health, folks, it's Donna Shalala the former HHS secretary under Bill Clinton now a freshman member in her seventies. And interesting story, but someone who will bring some healthcare expertise to the chamber, and then Laura and Underwood a new member from Illinois who pulse. Check listeners will be familiar with. She was on this show just a few months ago and Obama era just a fischel and a registered nurse, and Dan what caused you to to to fix that race and highlight that early on. I think Underwood was was indicative of so many things that Democrats wanted to highlight. She was woman running in a year when trying to get female champions into congress was important for Democrats. Choose structuring so much of a race on her opponent. Randy Holt grins opposition to ObamaCare and his. Repeal efforts. So the fact that she won in a district that historically has been a Republican stronghold very interesting and worth watching her given her HHS expertise in what she wants to do with that in congress. So we've talked about a few folks from Illinois Roskam Underwood Virginia also saw some major transitions Adam you, watch that state pretty closely. Absolutely. And this is a state that has trended a little bit bluer, especially on healthcare over the past couple of years you you'll remember they expanded Medicaid after Ralph Northam won the governorship and tonight. Three major seats ended up flipping from red to blue most notably. Maybe most apprising -ly Dave brat losing if you remember he was the freedom caucus, very conservative member who took Eric cantor seat back in twenty fourteen. Now that traditionally Republican seat is going blue losing to Abigail span burger, and it's you know, really kind of an interesting studying a night where there wasn't a massive Blue Wave like some had predicted. But inside. Certain cases in certain districts, where Democrats were able to prosecute case base. Squarely on an issue that manage a lot of people in this case healthcare, it was a winning issue. And it was it ended up being a winning race. So that was when I was watching very closely and kind of surprised at at at that one flipping we've talked about some of the rank and file members. But certainly the leadership bears watching too, and Adam you colleague, Alison Randall Steen have done a lot of tracking of who is going to be in charge in a new democratic house of the key committees. Who should our listeners be watching what's on the energy and commerce committee? Obviously you have to watch Frank Pallone. He's a longtime congressman from New Jersey. But this is first time chairing, the energy and commerce committing. Remember? This is the first on the Democrats will control the NC, which is the main healthcare committee since they passed ObamaCare in two thousand ten and have been out of power ever since then and in talking to a couple months ago. I his main thing was you wanted to number one really try and pass legislation or at least champion legislation that would rollback some of the things that Trump administration has done on ObamaCare, so legislation restricting the expansion of short term plans legislation that would extend more funding for navigators helping people sign up for for a CA plans. The other thing is he wants to go really hard on investigating Trump administration in areas where he feels like Republicans have fallen down on the job mainly around the things that have done administratively to as Democrats say weaken or undermine them out care, and I've talked to plumes office to about the migrant family crisis on the border that has been something that he's really honed in on would not be surprising to see hearings on that issue using his new power running that, and I would expect to see things start to move fast. This is something that Democrats have been planning four for a couple of months at least now between EMC house oversight..

"The midterms very much in those states, the Affordable Care Act exchanges are going to open again for sign ups, and if there are any bumps, if their premium hikes that critics will say, the Trump administration could have prevented that will play to their advantage. At the same time, the Trump administration Republicans can say any problems with the Affordable Care Act or the legacy of Democrats. And I think another issue that's wing are the fights over the short term health plans. Congress is is looming to attack these Democrats trying to pass a resolution to get the short term plans backed by the Trump administration, which they call junk plans. These plans don't cover as much as traditional ACA plans. There are a lot cheaper Democrats trying to put the spotlight on that issue and a federal court is also going to be hearing arguments in the short term plan legality fight later in October, and all these things have kind of kept healthcare, fun of mine. You look at all the major major issues that have come up in congress. The majority of them have had some kind of healthcare connection. You know, even the fight over. Cavanaugh has a connection in that, you know, it could ultimately define decisions on abortion on reproductive rights and ultimately maybe the portable characte healthcare.

"All the time, but most people in this country will look at that and say, that doesn't seem that doesn't seem right crime. Not good in our community. All right. Let's talk about candidate of the day today. We're talking about Lauren Underwood. Who was the democratic candidate for illinois's fourteenth congressional district which covers the outer suburbs of Chicago. Underwood is a thirty one year old registered nurse and health policy expert. She was appointed by Barack Obama to serve as a senior adviser at the US department of health and human services. She's running against four time incumbent Republican, Randy Holt grin illinois's. Fourteenth district is considered by the cook political report as leaning Republican. However, in twenty sixteen Trump only won the district by four percentage points Dane. What do you think of this race? What do you think? Lauren, I appointed by Barack Obama nurse. I'm sold. She would be the first African American in the first woman to represent the district Holkar and also hasn't had a challenge since twenty ten. So this is this is a classic case of what's happening all over the country in twenty eight teen is that you know in these districts where Republicans have run unopposed, the Democrats have not fielded a really strong candidate before you have someone who is not your typical candidate in this district. You know, first woman first African American, and she decided she was going to run for this race after halt grin held a town hall meeting where he said he would vote to protect health care coverage for people with preexisting conditions and then turned around and supported the full repeal of the Affordable Care Act, which would gut pre existing conditions. And because she has, she's someone who's she's a nurse. She has also some with the manageable heart condition. She said that she saw that town hall meeting and said, you know what, it's on.

That has that has all great. Another thing that I really love about Lord Underwood. So she's an African American candidate and she's running to represent and overwhelmingly white district. And in some interview somewhere she was asked while you're an afro American candidates a white district, are you a good fit for the district good fit for this race? And she said, this is my home and the idea that I might not be a good fit is idea. I never gave a lot of consideration to, which is the right way to think about this. It's it's the right thing about which is it is your home and that is how normal people think of things. And instead of trying to slice and dice this as some sort of amateur political consultant, she is a constituent who wants to become a congress person so that she can make life better for the people of her home. And that is what this is supposed to be all about. It's in can be about and can be about. And if you live in, they'll annoy fourteenth, you should know that your current congressman Randy Holt grin votes with Trump ninety six point, eight percent of the time.
