"republican party florida" Discussed on POLITICO's Nerdcast

"Democrats are really pouring it on here. Now, the Republican side of things is like hey. They're exhausting their high propensity voters and we the Republicans have about four hundred, thousand high propensity voters left in the wings. So they're gonNA show up the early in person voting and on election day and indeed like in two thousand sixteen. An interesting stat is Hillary. Clinton was ahead by two, hundred, forty, seven, thousand votes. On Election Day morning because of early and absentee votes. She wanted losing about one, hundred, thirteen, thousand. Because so many high propensity, Republican voters showed up and voted for trump. So there is that but these margins are insane and these total numbers are just crazy. We haven't seen this before. So we are in kind of a different world here, and for someone like me when I'm going to be looking at is okay on October nineteen th the big counties begin early in person voting. Then, we're probably going to start seeing Republicans pick up the pace and they counterbalancing like dropping author absentee ballots already filled out at the counter, the supervisor of elections or turning up at the early. Voting stations and casting their ballot more traditionally so Stay tuned it's it's going to change, and this is all a reflection again Florida like right in the middle of this big national story and you mentioned you know the the Florida Republican Party has this decades long experience an advantage with absentee ballots that Donald Trump Kinda just blew up with a couple tweets earlier this year right leg is more than a couple. and. That has totally shifted voting patterns in the state how the parties run their election operations, and also how folks like you go about analyzing what's what's really happening on the ground right I don't really have the same frame of reference that we had before because of that, I, mean, if you could pick an Emoji for how like. Republican Party pros in Florida reacted to. President trump demonizing mail in voting it would have been like the the face palm. Emoji like. Like what are you doing now you know sort of in fairness. So to speak to trump like he eventually worked out a more nuanced position, his opposition mail in voting, it was universal non requested absentee ballot voting that he was against. But you know that sort of information took a while for him to arrive at and for it to arrive. In the minds of a lot of Republican voters, Republican Party, Florida. So nervous about that few months ago they one of sending out absentee ballot request forms to voters with a picture of a Donald Trump tweet saying absentee ballot voting is okay and they blurt out the rest of the tweet because it was so confusing the doctorate so that they could make sure to still turn out voters to vote by mail. So like by the Republican Party's own reaction it was a problem for them. It is a problem for them and again, it doesn't mean they can't win but they and on the flipside Democrats there are basically running completely different you know election month strategy. Than they have in the past because of yeah they are just they've really made a huge push, just get everyone to vote by mail. Of course, there can be a problem with this voting by meals. The easiest way to screw up your vote if you signature doesn't match on file if you forget to sign the envelope, those are just kind of two big killers I think there was like thirty five thousand spoiled ballots that were cast absentee in the just ended August primary. There was no statewide race, but it gives you an idea like we could be looking at as many as one hundred thousand spoiled ballots in the general election if those same patterns hold true. And with how close the state always is. Could be important Oh. Yeah. Yeah. That that could be the ballgame. Generally speaking first time voters and a lot of. Younger voters. Who are not accustomed to casting absentee ballots, which are generally more democratic voters are more likely to screw it up. So that is something that the Democratic Party is kind of privately worried about. Another crazy thing going on about you know with Florida in the center this election, just the sheer amount of money getting poured into the election and I feel like nothing typifies more than the fact that Mike Bloomberg can pick a single state to drop one hundred, million dollars into and Florida can absorb that because it's so big but. I imagine if you turn on the TV right now it must be you know maybe occasionally you can catch a few minutes of whatever program you're trying to watch in between all the ADS. As of early October, we hit a record Florida almost two, hundred, fifty, million dollars in TV ads bought by team Biden, so to speak and trump. Biden's.

I'm doing alright. Thanks. Rhonda Santa stands firm on his position, and local officials have to make the call on things like masks and stuff like that. They had a local South Florida mayor Mary Gilbert and my beach, You know, kind of call out on that, and And some other things. Even though Miami Beach you know, wasn't enforcing the curfew that they had in place. It was There's so many complaints about it did finally, they're going to try to do that. What do you make of how the governor's handled all of this and what it does politically. To him in the next three years or so. Well, you know, I haven't any recent polling. I do know that in Jacksonville A few weeks ago, the University of North Florida had released poll showing that Santa's his approval ratings have started to slip in Jacksonville. It used to be a pretty Republican area. It's becoming a bit more democratic. So it appears that that coincided not as much with the conventions announcement as it did with the kind of slowly worsening situation. Over Corona virus. You know, I say this it has there have been a number of cases are instances where it appears. He should have done something more aggressively and didn't want we've talked about before kind of rhetorical aspect. Of being leader, which is telling people Hey, this is serious. You gotta wear a mask. What's all this together and I'm gonna pass a statewide mask order. Another one that you hear from epidemiologists is contact tracing. You remember last week or so. It really came before that Miami Dade did not have enough contact tracers estate for it. For them and didn't get them. So you know, in the end The virus is spreading because people aren't practicing social distancing. They're not being careful if they are perhaps in other states, that's on all of us. But you know, heavy lies the crown and if you're the leader You're going to get the credit when things were good, and you get blamed when things go bad. Yeah, well, the mayor Hi, Leah. You saw this first, he said it was like, totally couldn't he wasn't invited to a meeting when the governor came down, met with some The mayor's from Miami date cities, and then the mayor called him a spoiled child. What's that all about? What's going on with that? They have some sort of some sort of beef, which we're trying to figure out exactly where it started. The mayor of highly a Crow's. Hernandez had criticized around the Santas in the past. And it does appear to have played a role here. You know, the The governor, spokeswoman Helen Ferree has I highlighted this on my Twitter feed. In May, she chastised the Orlando Sentinel for running A story with a headline that said 4000 people could die in Florida because that's what this model had shown. Grand. The governor spokeswoman Hello Ferree called US Quote, alarmist headline. Well turns out that that headline was accurate. That projection was that in May was that we'd have 4000 dead by August, and now we're at more than 4600 dead total. So the problem? The administration has also had the the from the governor to a spokeswoman. If you keep downplaying the severity of things And when you know the news media is asking for basic information, help inform the public. We get stone wolf. And then when the mayor off the largest one of the largest cities in Miami did with the largest cities in the state I want to be cute in on howto help control Corona virus is blocked and understand. Carlos Hernandez is no liberal. He's not a Democrat I Leo Miami Days alone Republican City I don't know what you know, It's I don't get this governor me. I thought he was in a good job when this happened, and he's just going to fell apart Florida's primary now 33 days away. And we've seen a lot of like to surprise you say Yeah, there we're going. We're good with this vote by mail serves. It's bound to come here. Oh, something's triggered by the GOP's vote by mail problem in Florida. What's that all about? Well, One of the things that is happening is that more people are concerned generally about, you know, showing up with polls showing up anywhere in a pandemic and getting sick And so one wayto Get around that is to vote by mail. Our request an absentee ballot. The problem Republican Party has had is that the Republican Party of Florida has dominated in absentee ballot vote by mail balloting, which is the same thing. I have 1988 state when they won. Ah US operation airily Connie Mack with absentee ballots, But a promise is that the president has decided that To demonize voting by mail and a same time, though he's praised absentee ballots, But you're kind of the same thing and only quite understands what he's saying. Although it appears that he sort of opposes all male elections in Florida doesn't have that. Anyway. As a result of the president's logic or the president's rhetoric. I should say Republicans are increasingly not wanting to vote by mail because they say, OK, this is fraud, and meanwhile, Democrats are picking up the pace. So what used to be a slight advantage of Democrats and just requesting absentee ballots to come to the males vote? Now turn the massive leader about 425,000 more Democrats are ready to receive absentee ballots and vote by now. And so the Republican Party, Florida is tryingto remedy the situation which is greatly caused by the president's rhetoric, and its sound, a mailer the other day, other people saying, Hey, here's your absentee ballot. Request form and look at this great tweet from the president Praises Absence, he belts They had a doctor out the rest of the tweet where the president had said he'll mail in voting is bad. So.

"Power in Bloomberg television and radio. I'm David Western. It is time now for first word news, and for that, we go to Mark Crumpton. David. Thank you. Former national security adviser John Bolton isn't saying whether he personally briefed President Trump on intelligence indicating that Russian operatives offered bounties to kill American troops. In Afghanistan. But Bolton tells Bloomberg that the president's evolving explanation since the publication of the New York Times story sends the wrong message to Russia. What it tells the Russians is. We are in disarray on DH right for this kind of provocation, not just in Afghanistan, but in many, many other places around the world. President has publicly rejected allegations about the bounties. He tweeted today that it was fake news made up to damage him and the Republican Party. Florida had nearly 50,000 new cases of Corona virus in the past seven days. That's the highest since the pandemic began, and the state says the rate of people testing positive for the first time jumped to 15%. Florida has had 159,000 confirmed Corona virus cases. Pandemic will cost the global tourism industry at least $1.2 trillion this year. That's according to a new report from the United Nations Agency says that total could balloon to $3.3 trillion of travel restrictions and consumer wariness continue until March of 2021. A collapse of tourism could cause Jamaica 11% of it's gross domestic product and reduced Thailand's GDP by 9%. European Union member states aren't making much progress and talks on a Corona virus Recovery fund and the blocks next budget. German Chancellor Angela Merkel said they remain far apart who was the first day of Germany's six month you presidency. The member states are trying to bridge differences ahead of a July 17th summit meeting when the block will try to advance plans for $840 billion Rescue package. Global news, 24 hours a day on air and on quick take by Bloomberg, powered by more than 2700 journalists and analysts in over 120 countries. I'm more Crumpton, This is Bloomberg.

"WHO's a terrific entrepreneurs really inspiring kinda conversation? He's the kind of guy who you root for is is kind of created all of this from nothing and it has really built a cool product and a cool brand and Hope people go sport to sport and do themselves a favor. Because you put this on your car your car. If I had a car I'd buy some I do I will have Kamala Harris the one thing about this. I think we should talk about the fact that you and I especially. I think we're we're. We were afraid of her when she got in the race. We thought dangerous candidate and the thing is the people. The people are not like all wise that they will delve into every a policy decision but they are smarter than imagery and the imagery helps you first out of the gate but we have to remember they know it. They don't like the but the press yes they know what they don't like and they can just like everybody. You can look at a person and think like as shifty about you know like no. She did something. Yeah I think that people can see these things and and we don't trust them to see them and even Democrats can see them. I mean other media turned on her early Turned on the also built up. Yeah they built her up and then she got up there and they went. Oh Oh my God. This woman will lock us up. Maybe we better under Tolsey. Who took her out? That's not true if you look at the polls she took herself out right. She left up to the top of the polls and then immediately. She started to recede. Because she's the Hindenburg and people saw that she was flip. Flopping like a fish on medicare for all and even her initial attack on Joe Biden about forced busing was completely dishonest. Janis because no one supports forced busing especially not seventies. You're even in the nineteen seventies. Nobody supporting deeply unpopular even thinking seventies. Who the hell wants wants to put your kid on a bus and bus them an hour to school where they know nobody created white flight? The entire white flight problem at least a huge percentage of it was created by attempts to force. Bus is so you know it was. It was an idiot. Attempts shoes relegated in for final days I I love talking about the final days of cameras relegated her final days to being on Stage Chiding Elizabeth Warren born for not calling on twitter to ban Donald Trump was like this is how low you've sunk but it was kind of amazing because the fact is I until she dropped out. I thought there might be a shot. That you'd it'd be a second book. Candidate would be like Combo Harris the reason being because this feels a lot like twenty thousand for the Republicans where it was like everybody early on like Mitt Romney. That guy's probably pretty good and they looked at him to win And then they looked like many Newt Gingrich. And what maybe what Michele Bachmann Herman. Cain I mean literally went to a thousand people and then finally it came back I Guess Romney still here. That's Joe Biden. Circa Twenty twenty right all along Biden has been the guy where he was expected expected to win and he's never dropped below twenty five percent of the national polling and he's still winning by large numbers in South Carolina and throughout the south. When you wonder why they're trying to impeach Donald Trump you only? We have to look at Joe Biden. Although today was his best day. Yeah it was a good dog it was great it was okay come on the guy explode. Aw Person Fat known him fat and those his name by the way as for for people who missed it today Joe Biden doing a rally. It wasn't just like human a in Iowa and some portly fellow Elizabeth. Warren supporter apparently gets up and starts asking about hundred entre Biden and joe gets visibly perturb gets very angry and says because the guy says that on on wire right he says you're a damn liar. The Guy I saw it on the TV is I'm not sedentary you know I I'll get out there and exercise. What is it? This is a non sequitur okay. He's like I'll do a push up contest with y'all do an Iq test with calls for and then and then he literally says him look fat fat and and I thought to myself he could be president like everybody online twitter like this is a bad moment for Joe Biden is like Donald. Donald Trump is the president of the United States. If Joe Biden said to the Guy I'm gonNA come over there and grabbed by the president. Did you forget you forget everybody. WHO IMITATES DONALD FROM DIES? But that's table and but Joe Biden is what it's not. It's not you know I think when I saw that seventy seven year old Joe Biden up there hauling that guy that challenge. I just thought what the hell did this guy do. A corn pop insane. I can't even imagine I don't know I think Joe Biden the fact that the guy is a front runner really tells us something about the democratic. Well I agree. But here's my question. Dick Morris today wrote a piece about I said we talked about Hillary. Are we getting in here here. It is okay Dick. Morris writes a piece today author of Hillary Versus Condie. That's exactly what I was GonNa say I was GonNa say Dick Morris is I actually liked the guy what he has been wrong about every single. Sometimes he's wrong about things and for and for two or three minutes. I think I wonder if Morris is right today in his article about Hillary. Are you getting into the race. And he says you know her every thought is fixed upon it. He says but she's going to wait until Biden gets out. He's clearly the next person to drop on. What planet is is Joe Biden? Never the already what he ability. He's just a fat. Yeah philosophies awesome that he's going to win the later states which is always a bad philosophy you know. His his philosophy is that Budi judge or Sanders. The split some of the earliest dates the badly I mean. NFL MINUS MINUS THIRTY PLUS Nevada. He's leading in both right right. And then you get to Super Tuesday. Now he has to do is clear as we. We're joking here. There's something like seventy five to eighty defy a lot. A lot of large percentage of the Democrat primary voters are happy with their line of Enron. And by the way this is the thing that people are ignoring about the whole Kamala Harris drop out and this is. What's so amusing people at all? This just shows systemic racism American society and even bled down into the Democratic Party. The Hamil Harris had zero percent black support zero. No one cared about her cory. Booker has zero percent black sport. You know who has all black support. Joe Biden Yup which probably speaks pretty. Well I would say honestly of black voters in the Democratic Party aren't at least you're saying oh look a black diamond. Vote for him right. which was tried that once? It didn't work out. Well that's that's how the media portrays black voters is okay. Here's a black guy. White people the Komo Harissa is have the media. Things have to be careful about. The voters are actually smarter than that right. So I know I do. I do think you're absolutely right. They think that the media are thinking this very shallow sort of racial way but we're all underestimating is the brilliance of Joe Biden Strategy. Here it was the same strategy. Reggie is Rudy Giuliani. Do Giuliani got reelected three times. Quite what Biden is doing. It's one thing like Giuliani legitimately said. He wasn't going to even compete until Florida so he didn't just say I'M NOT GONNA you're right right if it is also important to note that there's there's a vast difference between the late stage strategies of a party that is largely homogenous in racial terms. Meaning that the Republican Party Florida was a lot like the Republican Party of New Hampshire Iowa or at least a a lot more right. The the Democratic Party of South Carolina looks nothing like the Democratic Party of Iowa. But it's up to the person who went. I will rarely wins the presidency and then this is the reason because the because the Democratic Credit Party in South Carolina the voting base in South Carolina in the Democratic primaries two-thirds black he voting base in Iowa in the Democratic primary is one hundred percent one hundred ninety seven percent white there was Queen Elizabeth. Warren there was a time when you thought Biden was an actual threat to trump. You actually think that he could be trump. Yes and the reason the reason still is because Donald Trump makes lots of mistakes. I've always said at the. I've always said that the election is going to rest on. Who is this referendum upon this referendum on trump or is it a referendum on the Democrat? The Warren who to judge so sanders then Kamala Harris than the radicalism of the Democrat would be enough to drive a lot of moderate voters to go. I don't like this trump trumka very much. He seemed like kind of a jerk. But the economy's good he's not screwing up. My wife already have to pull ever for that guy but Joe Biden has one hundred percent name recognition. Everybody thinks what they think about him. He's basically a dead guy and dead person is not a bad person to run against. Trump is not a referendum on the dead guy. You know that guy's dead and when you have a question. Do you feel like you as a conservative. Do you feel anywhere near as threaten. I Joe Biden his president as you do by Elizabeth Warren over you have to ask. When was the last time time because to your point? He's already a dead guy. When was the last time the more boring candidate one? Yeah that's always think of it but it's but there is uh-huh we talk about how trump is unique in many ways one of the ways in which is unique is that what's interesting about him is alienating to a particular demographic and that particular demographic suburban married suburban women. I think we'll look back with a certain fondness on the Obama era because during the Obama era we may have been and having policy losses and we may have been having economic losses. We don't remember those because they weren't that painful but we do remember that things just weren't crazy and Joe Biden just kind of represents is instances return to a time when that Nice young man was president and everybody was kind of friendly and everybody kind of got along people set. But that's I'm just reading here and I'm not saying by the must win. This is right. This is why Biden is most likely to win of anybody that the Democrat always the strongest democratic pitch was the one thousand nine hundred. Warren G harding returned to normalcy family campaign That was always the strongest democratic. Because the only thing they've been successful in doing is keeping the feeling this roiling feeling of upset and task going was the only thing that Democrats have been good at doing for the last several years. I mean they've not been able to stop trump agenda he's been able to get large swath of it through but they have been able to make people feel deeply uncomfortable because they have the entire press right right and again. I agree with all of that right. I'm not saying that's from fall. I think that the Democrats and I think it's partially from of course. No trump is trump is trump rally. And he's in volcano right and they cover the volcano but they also exacerbate the effect of the volcano. I Win I will say I know. This is the most popular opinion I have but I will say the trump has been tony down if you watch what. He's yeah doing. He is catching on. Is Trump never changes. But he always changes. He's always playing the game. This is your muslim-populated most popular his trip. It's just overseas drew. Not here had NATO. He's like walking around slapping Laurel. And Hardy you don't trump for sloppy. The Europeans come on Biden Biden ran that Ad. Europeans don't respect Michigan. Michigan like the Michigan Workers. mccrone chrome doesn't love him. That European incident actually showed drew's point though which the point is he's in the environment where we're donald trump of even a year and a half ago would have gone on a three hour drive rate. That's about little pencil neck. Justin Trudeau that dirtbag idiot idiot you know and instead no got one line. And he said he's two faced but look I'm representing the United States. Maybe he doesn't like that and then he insulted mccrone. Listen I'm I have no problem insulting to any of this. But he's not doing what he was doing before known as Rocky Balboa last week it was what that was. I was amused both on like Lincoln Writing Gettysburg Address Farewell Walking. Walk some sort of all right all right one more. Gee you theory of relativity or like or like spring geary genius like where we're going with this that the president has made changes recently..

Peter how are you give their Peter Hey there my gosh here we go there we go I'll ploy now I'm not in you know my dad is there's never a segment with you that goes by where like something with the phone doesn't go a little hay wire all right so now we've got yeah let's start with this situation between governor de Santis and the Florida Republican Party what what is going on and and talk a little bit about this big fund raiser at the end of the year that the president's now going to do but it seems to have created some drama and to have revealed some factions that aren't quite getting along here is the annual statement dinner held each year at Disney world it is the big fund raising event for the Republican Party of Florida the problem is that the parties are not as strong as they used to be for a variety of reasons it is in the United at cetera so the question of who's gonna raise money for the park the governor always been the chief fundraiser for the part governor Sanchez has kind of backed off of that you know if we can raise money through October money for this dinner but that with that he was gonna continue to raise money for his political committee and the legislature to raise money for their own campaign arms but I'll be here raising money for the party the party's been a little bit of financial trouble it is nowhere near what it was before if there's just did not want to participate in the annual dinner unless they get locked down a big name joker the chairman of the RPO apps had Marco Rubio on standby but that wasn't the kind of big name but the thing that that sucks for Marco Rubio unbeknownst to well the recording says I'm the nose to greater Candice was in conversation the what what the White House to bring trump down okay well I guess apparently trumpet between UST and Alabama river that lets you dancing with the stars and whatever else he's on you know whatever else other sporting event he's going to lately wasn't able to go in November so he said no and so they've got this guy in there Peter work he's the executive director of the arc US he is a tranquility with the deputy secretary of the be a kind of controversial from reporting came out last week that it a very bad and you're up there he's operating on his own on it on as a kind of on his own timetable he says the event cancel graders as like wait a second I'm doing this and the sentences of walking on his own thing trying to be could bring trump and no communication no coordination everybody's kind of doing their own thing one hand was definitely not washing the other and so it's indicative of a and what is indicative of the of the I just efficiency of the Republican Party Florida it has a lot to do with the larger story which is the demise of political parties in general it's also about one to see and to really assert himself at the head of the party yeah and and my it's not even a conspiracy theory my thinking is here if you want to make himself look good or wants to make the president not beholden to him but he wants to hold on to borders alecto world votes as tightly as he can so that you know what to think this doesn't become a Jon Kate sick or Jeff sessions eight eight former you know adversary or our former allies it becomes an adversary and so yeah if the answer is is that a lot of maneuvering behind the scenes the problem for the campus is greater than the state senator if carried legislation or to Santa yes popular with the rank and file of the party and so the idea of just moving out joker's as chairman he's running obstacles trying to do this and so right now the kind of that some reporting that we're trying to work on right now we believe there was a meeting today between that they have to build up on it what your greater kind of to clear the air one more time and dissenters really came into this as an outsider correct he was not he was not in the middle Florida politics really aside from being a congressman eight clearly an outsider to the Tallahassee yeah that was that which is why people like him or part of the reason why people like him no he doesn't know the mechanics of what's going on at the Republican Party of Florida that's why Peter work as part of a security consultant to conduct an audit of the finances they don't know what the party is listen the party has spent millions of dollars quarter mostly on staff but it is spent money on other things consulting contract and they don't have a lot to show for and so Peter a work and the governor's office wanted to help you in a second what did you spend that money on water we even raising all this money it's just going to go back out the door to the consultants to not in not coincidentally oppose me in the last election okay so that's the dynamics at play here and at the end of the day the Santa so was able to get the president to do this fundraiser right it was the you know the credit of the hearing which is huge I mean you you don't get it you don't get a bigger name than president from when it comes to any Republican Party function not just here Florida but around the country no I mean that is he is the party nothing even close I don't even know what the equivalent of right now it'll be a major of and they'll raise five hundred thousand million to million dollar there's a little bit of grumbling each of these events is about to happen coincide with the the quarterly meeting of the Republican Party of Florida you know to the ranking member the folks that are the state committee man and state committee woman from very small county you know the you know if this is their number crawl this is their big event and so they're grumbling a little bit about being put out having to travel in November December but this is all it's a victory for to see if it shows that he expected the white out it shows that he is after the titular head of the party but the actual head of the party and is more more firmly in control of every aspect of the government will there be the governmental side getting people to like it Republican senators to vote out Scott Israel or the political side taking more more control of the Republican Party if there's one political aspect to it and we talk about this again again there's all these little small factors must be.

"I would say right, especially if they can keep that Senate seat in Florida with Bill Nelson rattling off Rick Scott in this case. Rick Scott, holding off Bill Nelson at this point. The lead is down to fifteen thousand votes in favor of the Republican governor, Rick Scott, and it's just it's mind blowing that once again, it's Florida 'cause you just have these flashbacks the two thousand like is there an issue in Florida that they just can't get this, right? Often called Florida are Australia. It's almost like where we send everybody that. We don't want goes to Florida a big fan of the state every time we would go to visit. I would want to come back to three days early flap. There's Denny's after McDonald's after Burger King after Denny's after Burger King after McDonald's hit I don't find it to be an appealing place to go unless you've got a ton of money, and you make it to south beach to the west coast or the west coast obviously Naples in those areas, but some Augustine also. Yeah, no, this is really nice sections. They I'm just trying to be funny, maybe disparaging one of our states. But I also think this would be like talk about pie in the sky to bring in if you really want. Do elections. Right. Would you bring in other states to oversee other states elections? It's almost like it would make it more transparent. Whereas you bring in people from Illinois to probably a bad example to because if had corruption they're from another state to oversee Florida, and the people from Florida could oversee elections in other states that you just have other peoples oversee elections, of course, that would bring forth a whole bunch of problems. I'm kind of thinking out loud here. But just because it's just so political politicized. Where obviously you've got someone in a particular position. Who's either a democrat Republican that is so entrenched in this that they wanna see their party win. Then all of a sudden, there's some shenanigans going on and that that's kind of not the way it's supposed to be. There's gotta be a better way to do this. I guess. Yeah. In as many words, as I write this particular county has long had issues. Apparently, it was it's it has been interesting to sort of watch people talk about and I think it was on Friday. I saw a former Republican party Florida Republican party officials. She was no longer with the party are no longer started working for them. But she really gave some good insight into this particular county and talked about basically exactly what Marco Rubio was saying. Which is that these this way that they counted? These roads was incredibly slow and on top of being incredibly slow. They were also very non-transparent. Right. They had no idea. What was going? They kept people in the dark. So those two things combined late leads you very suspicious. Public and obviously suspicious candidates political candidates on both sides, probably. And so it's just interesting to sort of learn a little bit more about this particular county. Apparently, it's had issues. There's been lawsuits filed before dealing with them. So. As you said, it's funny. It's not obviously the exact same issue. The folks were facing in two thousand but yet on certainly here we are again. And of course, looking forward to twenty twenty. This isn't sorta thing that matters. I mean, it does matter because basically it's about whether Trump is able to continue to to pass his agenda in in. In the capital. And so we'll keep an eye on these. It's it's very interesting too. To sort of see, of course, they're rushing. Apparently there's a deadline that they need to hit by. So so all of that together. Makes it this crazy sort of scramble it almost has a feel of like this local election in linear revere, right? Where this ballots missing. Right. What's not counted? And you kind of get the idea what happens in real local election. You talking about an alderman seed or school committee seed, and you know, there's there's something going on there. But this is again, all the elections are local and state I get that. But this has many more ramifications in just the local seat in revere. Lynn, whatever city you wanna pick talking about the US Senate here with razor thin right now in favor of the Republicans. They're going to be able to hold that lead at some point. Whether it's fifty one forty nine or all the way up to fifty four forty six depending on what happens in Arizona. What happens in Florida? And what happens in a run off later this month in Mississippi. So it's very very important. I just think that there's gotta be some better way than is being done. People will say, well, we don't see this in Massachusetts. Again. It's a pretty much a one-party state and elections in Massachusetts are blowouts. I mean, we're we're the big takeaway from today is that Bill Galvin got the most votes in the state of Massachusetts, which I found surprising. And that was a great point that you made Hillary, but in these states where it's very very close. You know, you're going to have a lot of a lot of infighting in both sides are going to claim that they want and both sides are going to claim that they were wronged, and that's what's going to happen. When the vote comes down to a miniscule amount right now, which is to one hundreds of percentage point, which is just, you know, again, only fifteen thousand volts right now, the Rick Scott leads by over Senator Nelson for that very very precious Senate seat, speaking of the election last week. We started the week off with a real dull moment by Saturday Night Live not only by Pete Davidson. But by the show itself by. Allowing this this bit that Pete Davidson suggested and ended up doing to go forward. Pete Davidson gets onto apologize figure. We've got a little bit of levity here. We're gonna we're gonna go. Listen to this update from Sarah lives, Pete Davidson. And what I'm sure it was a huge shock for people. Who know me I made a poor choice last week..

"They come from an island where there are no midterm election. So they don't have the culture of voting every two years. They vote every four years, but they have a heavy culture vote enduring dues, but Trump is not on the ballot. We were just talking about other candidates who are Trumpian, but it's not the same as having Trump at the ballot. So if they're upset at the president for the hurricane response, it's not like a direct link, and in general, the Puerto Ricans who have been here since before Maria have tended to not vote as much as they could they've underperformed in elections. And I think until we see that change. It's going to be hard to say. Oh my God. They're going to be a huge force. Governor Rick Scott is on a fabulous job of towing Puerto Rican voters that he cares. And if we saw at least in the early polling he's been successful in doing that. What we don't know is not only what these new voters from Puerto Rico are going to do. But the older ones who are here. They're now being paid attention to they're now being told look you matter show up and vote, and I think we might start seeing a change in their turnout patterns, which we haven't seen before as far as the span of communion, Florida. It's not wanna spend a community. It's a bunch. But the the bulk is Cuban Americans Cuban Americans have a fantastic voting rate. And slowly you're starting to see the Cuban-American Republicans in south Florida starting to be counterbalanced by the Puerto Rican voters who are democratic leaning in central Florida. We just don't know how it's gonna mix out what governor Scott has done. Well, that I think other Republicans have tried to do here as well, which maybe people haven't seen in the rest of the country might be surprised by is that he has. Campaigned to each nationality differently. As opposed to treating Latinos like one homogeneous group that you just speak to them in Spanish, he goes to Colombian independence day event. And he goes to a Puerto Rican roundtable where the focus is not just Latinos in general, but oh, we're going to talk about your specific issue and people really respond well to that because they don't feel like they're just lumped in as part of a big group. But like somebody's actually even if they can't do much because you know, the governor of Florida doesn't set foreign policy they can at least listen to them. And they feel heard so understanding that younger Cuban Americans are trending more progressive than their older forebears do Cubans still set a firewall for Republicans in south Florida. I would say that one of the surprises we've seen from two thousand sixteen to now is that there were a lot of skeptical Cubans towards Trump because they had to come off of this fractious Republican primary where Trump defeated Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio who were like the. Local favourite sons, especially Rubio who is Cuban American. And so there were some Cubans who maybe didn't vote for president or voted democrat or just didn't know what to do wrote in Jeb Bush. But now there's sort of they've consolidated in many cases behind Trump because the Republican party Florida's become the Republican party of Trump. And so they are much more comfortable saying that they're going to support him. And I think you're going to see that in some congressional races where local Republicans in Miami, especially have more support than they might have had in twenty six. I think the only politician from the democratic side of the kind of cracked the Cuban puzzle was President Obama he was able to get those younger voters out. And I think that was more of a function of him being kind of a transformational figure and therefore younger voters regardless of ethnicity or race came out voted for him. Maybe Andrew gillum. We'll have that effect. I'm not sure one of the things about Andrew gillen's candidacy in the governor's race is that he doesn't he doesn't seem to have had enough money and enough time to message as deeply as you would. Deeply as you can in a presidential race. So we might be looking at a at a lower turnout race here because it's a midterm using midterm races in Florida have a lower turnout in a presidential race. So when you look at gillum, and you look into Santa's and they're not necessarily bringing moderates the table who are they appealing to. What is the appeal of each candidate Gillam is appealing in some cases to people who don't usually vote in midterms? We saw in the primary that he brought out some young voters some non white voters that were unusual to see on the voting rolls. We'll see if he continues that for the general and his I think his key appealed to a lot of these folks is that he's very likable. I mean, he has that charisma that is sort of difficult to teach and to learn as a politician and dissent is bringing out people who voted for Trump, and who are solid conservative Republicans and want to see the state remain red and Florida usually votes red in midterms which I think is hard for people to realize because we're such a purple. Swing state the largest swing state in the country in presidential years doesn't usually act that way. Mitch Santa's messages. It's two things. It's I'm going to stay. The course and Andrew gillum is is a corrupt cop heater. Then this is essentially his message radical right that you saw on his first debate. And you know, you can't trust Andrew gillum. You're seeing some of the similar messaging that was used against Barack Obama that's being used against Andrew Gillam. It's one of those things that lead some Democrats, especially African American Democrats think it is kind of a race based attack. And in fact, one of the things that characterized the peculiarity of the governor's race at the very beginning of the general election was the day after run Santa's when interviewed on FOX had said that you'd want voters to monkey this up when it came to this election, and a lot of Democrats and a lot of African Americans proceed that is a racial slur against inter Gillam who again is the first African American nominee for governor in the Florida Democratic Party or any major Democratic Party and. About a month. We had a lot of racial tension. One of the things that you saw from the two thousand sixteen presidential race, which we didn't really see in Florida before is how racial messaging can actually work for Republicans. You saw that with President Trump? And there was a strong white turnout for him that we hadn't seen before. And there was a school of thought among conservatives in Florida that look if enter Gillam wants to talk about race and Andrew gillum wants to make this a referendum about race and accused Rhonda Santa's of race baiting, which he essentially did during the first debate that's actually going to turn out more white voters, and that's an element. We have very little experience in kind of gauging, and we're going to have to wait until election day, two seats, effective. You said that traditionally Florida votes red during a midterm election mid-term elections at the same time generally seen to be a referendum on the president. How do those two dynamics important in this election? I think this is a weird midterm because it is an unusual president in that he has inspired a lot of the left to become more active in politics. And so that is what Democrats are banking on. Which is that there will be people who are just going to vote for Democrats because there's a D next to their name and not an are. And the president is a Republican more than another midterm elections because sort of the emotions toward Trump are are just very raw. But the election were happening right in the middle of the immigration crisis. Right. Where there was a lot of controversy over kids being separated from their parents. I think it would have been easier to say, oh, that's point to drive a bunch of people out because I was an issue that really sort of pierced and cut through and everybody knew about and was talking about do some of the other controversies that sort of take over Washington get trickle down to the average voter. I'm not sure. So that's why it's sort of like we'll see if. They'll be able to actually tap into some of that, you know, then starting persistence and get them to vote stepping away then from the national environment when you are talking to Floridians, what are the issues in this state that are motivating them to vote not some of the same issues that get talked about nationally. I mean in Florida the environment is a big issue. We had a summer where water quality was a real problem. You had toxic algae red tide red tide in the Gulf of Mexico that was killing a lot of fish and mammals Dead Sea turtles by hundreds and thousands coming up on the beaches. And then you had blue green algae coming down from lake Okeechobee and causing respiratory problems. And it looks like peace soup. I mean, and so this is happening on both ends of the state in a state. We're already climate change is a big issue because you see tidal flooding and sea level rise threatening builders and affecting People's Insurance rates, and you know, so all of those issues together matter. A lot more here and matter to a lot of voters much more than they would elsewhere in the country. We look at the polling. They say Healthcare's of big issue. Florida's a state that hasn't expanded Medicaid under ObamaCare, eight hundred thousand people lack health sub those health insurance. So they otherwise would've gotten and Democrats have made a good concerted effort to make that a big deal. It does appear that when you put everything together the environmental catastrophe of red tide blue-green algae, there was even a Brown tide. You dead whale shark on the beaches, dead dolphin President Trump's relative lack of popularity in the state, and then the issue of health care. It starts to look like a very bad toxic soup for Republicans yet to their credit. They're still holding on. And that's why we're kind of hesitant to say. Oh, Rick Scott's gonna win or lose to spend so much money between on election day in these expensive TV markets that it's it's going to be an onslaught I want to turn to an issue that I haven't heard either of you speak about which is the shooting in parkland. A lot of enthusiasm and energy, especially from young voters in Florida at the time that had happened has that enthusiasm held. That's a good question. I mean, the fact that we didn't mention it, and the fact that it was so politically significant kind of reflects the broader attention span, perhaps not just the political class, but also of voters in general, what parkland did change this election season was a perception of guns for the first time if became politically safe, and perhaps even politically necessary for Democrats embrace gun control full on the fact that candidates even talking about gun control and not just Democrats. But in the first debate for governor, you did not see Rhonda Santa's give a huge pushback on the gun issue, which normally would have been like catnip for a Republican to go after. So they have changed the tenor of the debate. And the fact that it's even coming up in debates and in ads because we are seeing the gun ads come out we're seeing some of the parkland parents who are not in favor of gun. Control. But who want to focus on school safety cut ads for Republicans? So it's a complicated issue. The fact that it's even at the being discussed or being pulled about or asked about it a debate. I think is a change that we would not have predicted in January bills will you a change of the state level? I mean, I'll be at the parkland shooting happened right in the midst of the Florida legislative session. But the idea if you would've told me a year ago, heck, if you would've told me on February thirteenth the day before the massacre that Republican led legislature and Republican governor Rick Scott would have supported gun control. That would have raised the age limit for purchasing semi automatic. Or just long guns that they would have put in what snow is a red flag law allowing police essentially to seize your guns, if they think you are. You know, mentally unstable. I would have laughed you off the street and those things not only were brought up they pass in record time. So looking forward to twenty twenty how much will the results of this mid term impact how each party thinks about their approach to the next presidential election. If the Democrats lose both the governor's race and the Senate race, you're going to see a party in shambles because they were already needing to put it mildly therapy after Hilary Clinton lost Florida. They didn't think they would. And they had previously lost in the mid term in two thousand fourteen if you if the Democratic Party winds up losing three general elections in a row and Florida we're going to stop looking at Florida as swing state. This is going to start looking like a red state, if the Republicans lose they're going to blame their candidates in the end governor, Rick Scott while tremendously wealthy and. Oh, he does have a good record a campaign on his an awkward campaigner. And he's still going against uncommon in Senator Bill Nelson. And the gubernatorial race to Patty's point earlier, Andrew gillum is a very likeable and charismatic candidate those words are not used to describe the Republican nominee to Santa's. There are a lot of Republicans who known from congress from the Florida delegation who don't really like him. So he's he's not a warm and fluffy guy and in the governor's race. If it plays out where going does win. I think Democrats are going to have an argument nationally to make for progressive candidates because that has always been the test case for him Democrats here have usually put up a very centrist candidate for governor. Last time it was a former Republican and here they're going all the way in on the progressive message. And if the progressive message bests, the Trump acolyte message that is. Going to be able to hold in parallel to twenty twenty two wealth. How do you run against Trump? This is one way to do it. Thank you both so much. Thank you.

"Sound conclusions it concluded most just want to support their own beliefs great essentially give me the facts but only if they prove my point that's not smart Republicans on the hill where like what they know it's ally the White House has no detail about it it's totally made up so there's part of me that sees this in thinks I guess maybe the tax cut they already passed isn't working he's that's what he's trying to change the subject ms thirteen caravans and cabin on all the rest and civility but now Eh had the wherewithal to think ahead months ago he would've said I think we're GONNA need a tax talk about on the road let's get one out there right a proposal there didn't have it so we just made one up that's what he's doing he's making up now it's a good sign right he realizes that this is a problem for them they're going around that this tax cut message that Democrats have is really really effective so you know what let's we can't let the perfect be the enemy to get donald trump is going to be lying about healthier he's GonNa be lying about taxes it's GonNa be lying about caravans we should be talking about the lies he's talking on healthcare and we'd be talking about the lines he's telling tasks 'cause those are the two places where we're GONNA win the election and by the way those are these substantive actual stakes of the in healthcare and taxes is actually what we're going to be legislating on next year and is actually what the choices over so I I am glad he's making up tax cuts I am glad he's lying about conditions because then we can talk about it and and candidates on the trail I mean just on the substance the house is not going to meet until after the election there's literally zero chance that they're going to take this up it would take sixty votes in the Senate or a new budget he said before November and after the election that's that's when we're going to be having this tax debate also this was a pretty contentious issue time so it's ridiculous but generally speaking the thing that makes me nervous is that we are not with the exception of taxing if we can get people to focus on this we're not closing this election on firm ground for us when you before aw it was the anonymous bad it was Woodward's book it was Muller's investigation I'm not saying those are the issues of our time that we should be focused on but it certainly was helpful for Democrats since cavenaugh it's been cavenaugh backlash liberal mobs the caravan and whatever the days lie is and I don't know how to change that national narrative but this does not feel good it feels very bad right now yeah it does and I mean part of the problem is there is no national leader of the Democratic Party can be the person that's on the other half of the screen Donald Trump is talking now the good news is locally right every every single district and restate has a candidate or leader who's going to represent that message and I think Democrats have been pretty disciplined about keeping focused on the issues where Democrats are strong which is being against cutting taxes for rich people to cut Medicare and social security protecting people from preexisting conditions you've seen places like Missouri where Josh Holly is on his heels because he's claim to be in favor of protecting people with preexisting conditions while being one of the leads in a lawsuit designed to obliterate those protections so you know we talked about this after trump won we're going to talk about this for the next two years what do you do when you have someone like Donald trump who is a savant in rusting the microwave microphone away from issues that matter from other people we are talking Medicare van because he tested out and it fucking worked he is a raptor testing offensive and when he bit the part of the fence that said caravan he went outside the thing and picked off Genera you learn about it on Fox and friends or Matt Gaetz is racist under feet and made it a global issue greats this well done everyone but that's the but that's that's it that's this is the this is the water women trump is going to be lying about every single issue he's lying about Saudi Arabia he's lying about preconditions he's lying about Medicare is lying about the caravan the question is what can we talk about to make a difference you gotta fight it out in these districts got to win the ground battle you mentioned before this is clearly a nakedly racist appeal how do we know because he proudly told everyone is Houston rally to call him a nationalist but why is it bad to be a nationalist well you know he was asked later like did you mean this as a reference to white national NBC Like I've never that theory he watches cable news all day every day he knows that when we're talking about nationalism it is a fain towards white nationalism he knows that he's illiterate about history but he's not literate about what white nationalism and the word nationalism means in our politics right now and he's very excited and in I and and you know what he knows that when he says the word nationalist is GonNa hit the soft spot for a lot of his base while not mattering to the Republicans have already looked the other way to vote for before so it's it's pretty gross not great Yeah I mean good patriotism is good patriotism is loving your country nationalism is forcing your values in of life on someone else the darkest example is Nazi Germany but more recently you know trump all his allies talk about white nationalism so it does feel like he's again being up to the people who are marching in Charlottesville you have groups like the proud boys who are white extremist group beating people up in New York marching alongside the chairman of the Miami Republican Party Florida but like stepping back it's not a new strategy Nixon had the Southern Strategy Reagan would talk about Welfare Queens yet Lee atwater and Karl Rove of using nasty subterranean racial shit trump just screams the quiet part from the rooftops every single time also don't trump is not a nationalist right even the positive sense of the word right he subverts American interest constantly raise interest he went to Helsinki and you know cozied up to to Putin who has been trying to fuck over our country for years he is now bending over backwards at the behest of the Saudis against American interests he over and over again put the interests of America second to his own that is what he does the other piece of this is it you know we we kind of connect populism and nationalism Donald trump campaigns as a nationalist populist someone who's going to defend America from foreign invaders going to defend American from America from foreign trade he has done some things on trade for the most part he campaigns as this populist anti immigration but what are the actual compliments of his administration they are the same kind judges that Mitt Romney or Marco Rubio would have appointed tax cuts for corporations and the wealthy and the deregulation agenda people like the coke brothers he campaigns as populist nationalist he governs like Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell that has been the recipe from the beginning that is what they are banking on in the midterms and the question is will it work and the and the honest answer is we don't know let's kick out about healthcare for minute the good news is when you ask people what they really care about they say health care that's why it was kind of surprising that the trump took another run at the affordable care act Monday by outsing a new policy that would make it easier for states to circumvent coverage requirements and consumer protections in the bill in the law under the any policy states could use federal funds to subsidize junk plans with terrible benefits that don't protect people with preexisting conditions this would not just harm people by these plan potentially unravel the whole market it would love it why is this such a big deal in why would you do this right before the election when you know this is what Democrats want to run I think they're banging on the fact that it's a little bit complicated and it'll be seen to the base as trying to get rid of obamacare and not really registered by the rest of the country Jonathan Kohn wrote about this and having to impose which is really worth reading obamacare said health insurance has to cover certain things and it has to cover everybody the idea being that nobody knows when they're going to be the one that has a desperate healthcare emergency where they need quality affordable care nobody knows when they're going to get hit with the bill that their insurance caps out or if their insurance doesn't cover everything they're financially ruined they'll be digging out for a decade right part of the reason obamacare it was passed was because one of the most common reasons people were going bankrupt in America was because of medical bills now what they have tried to do is say two states we're going to keep it Obamacare in place but if you want you get a waiver and you get to give people shittier plans well what happens if you create two pools one with the obamacare plans of that all the protection if something goes wrong and the skimpier plans have caps and don't cover certain things but are cheaper well healthy people take a chance and get the cheaper plans while people with pre exist conditions who need care end up in the the main group which ends up being more expensive because the healthy people are no longer taking part so what is the end result it's it means more expense it's a care for pre existing conditions which they claim they're against and a bunch of healthy people some of whom will because of math and body's breaking because we're all the same fucking meet are going to get are going to end up being bankrupt and had their lives room because they took a chance on a skimpier plan which they may not even understood because of the fine print that is the world we lived in sir creating two systems they're gonNA leave obamacare place while creating little shunted off old system where people get fucked raising the cost of the obamacare system that's what they're trying to do claiming they're gonNA protect your healthcare you there's very purposeful yeah the allowed states to try to innovate and offer new policies but you know that covers had to be as comprehensive as what's offered under the correct she couldn't offer these junk plans but some of the junk plans omit maternity care prescription drugs mental illness treatment drug abuse treatment and exclude.
