"Rick Davis and Jeannie she and Zayn are all star panel the Bloomberg politics contributors who make us help us make sense of all the economic news happening today Let's start with what Larry summers the former US Treasury secretary had to say when he spoke to Bloomberg's David Weston on Bloomberg TV's Wall Street week this was first on the jobs report when he said we got a lot of demand not so much supply on the economy He said it's in a difficult situation still And he also says the global corporate tax accord is in his words the most important economic agreement of the 21st century Here is Larry summers speaking to David Weston The most important global economic agreement of the 21st century so far It's important in reality because it's going to fortify tax collections from corporations for companies all over the world It's important in principle because instead of countries running a race to the bottom with respect to taxing business income they're now going to level up in a way that's going to be fairer and permit tax reductions on working people all over the world Well Rick Davis I want your takeaway on this because just in the last segment we heard from congressman Kevin Brady the top Republican on the house's tax writing committee who really downplayed the importance of this as it pertains to the current debate in the U.S. over our own corporate rate So Rick who's right is this a massive deal or is it not the kind of thing that should factor in to our own domestic debates right now Well I think you really put it wisely in that if you're looking at just a domestic tax structure that we have in whether or not our current 21% corporate rates how that's going to be affected by it then you'd say yeah no it's not It's not much of an effect But if you look at the global economy and all the tech companies especially you know who have shifted their profits to low tax or no tax havens in a way to avoid a corporate tax in the amount of revenue that that has lost to jurisdictions around the world then it is a big deal So it just depends upon what point of view you have And I thought what was interesting about what Larry summer said is that he says this is so far the greatest thing that's happened in the 21st century in Texas What is he thinks coming next That does seem to be the key question on that I'm curious about the jobs report as well that we discussed with congressman Brady Jeannie obviously the Republicans are not painting a particularly positive picture of job gains and the report that came out this morning was lower than expected What does that actually mean though Should we be focusing on the headline number of a 194,000 or what really is the take away from today's jobs report in your view You know we did hear in a lot of the headlines echoed that You know it didn't meet expectations which were half a million But as the president said when he came out and made his remarks today there were positive signs there There was the fact that the unemployment rate dropped from 5.2 to 4.8 Those are very good numbers But I think the broader perspective here is something that we ignore oftentimes which is that the president does get the benefit in the criticism when the economy is doing well or in a slump But the fact is is that the president doesn't have as much control over the economy as we like to think And in this case what the economy is responding to in the president is right about this is the pandemic These numbers were collected end date was mid September He's right that's when Delta was soaring It's going to take time to get us out of a self imposed shutdown that we were in So I think we've got to be realistic here about how much the president controls the economy whether that president is Trump or that president is Biden You know Rick I also want to ask you a similar question that I asked the congressman because I think this is something that everyone's trying to figure out right now Why aren't these job numbers stronger Initially Republicans said that it was because of that supplemental unemployment insurance That's no longer a thing Democrats said it's because kids haven't gone back to school yet Well now a lot of schools are open What is going on here What's happening with these numbers Well I mean when you look inside of it there aren't very many good indications that we're in a trend I mean July this number was at a million And so what's happened in the last two months Well you know we stopped paying extra unemployment insurance Well hell that should have gotten everybody back into the employment line like Republicans have been proposing But even Kevin Brady who you just interviewed pointed out that 50% of this 194,000 number for September are 55 years and older I mean that really defies what we thought was missing in the job market which was driven by leisure and lodging and hospitality So it's kind of hard to tell where we go from here A lot of people's expectations have actually not materialized And so I think Democrats are looking for an answer But Republicans thought that this was going to be a better report because they really truly believed that the extra unemployment insurance when it ran out would drive people back to work The September number doesn't show it Well looking at the details of this report some of the private sector numbers were significantly better but actually in particular public education jobs declined in September seems like a strange time for that to happen Jeannie real quick What do you think caused that Well I think this is what we're going to be seeing as a fallout from the pandemic and the shutting down and I think you're absolutely right to point that out That was one of the oddities But as we saw when this report was released that was to a certain extent poo pooed They.

"Of the debt ceiling through early September and it's our hope that we can get this done today Early what did I say Oh Jesus September's past already Let me revise my statement Well I kicked the can down the road A couple of more weeks Why create an additional layer of uncertainty We have reached agreement on we have reached agreement to extend the debt ceiling through early December And it's our hope that we can get this done as soon as today I yield the floor The pathway our democratic colleagues have accepted will spare the American people any near term crisis We don't need to kick the can We don't need to go through a cumbersome process The speaker And the democratic leader had three months notice to do their jobs But for two and a half months Democrat leaders did nothing And then complain That they were actually short on time He's bought us perhaps two months To work on the bipartisan infrastructure Bill and the reconciliation bill We don't need to kick the can I think he finally realized the gravity of the strategy And so we kicked the can with the panel on the fastest hour in politics Welcome to sound on the Thursday edition Welcome to little Friday Let's assemble the panel with Bloomberg politics contributor Republican strategist Rick Davis and democratic strategist Kristen Hahn is with us communications director at rock solutions former comms director for the blue.

"Not written in stone, but but it's enough that both Democrats and Republicans as part of the group. Are taking it to our colleagues to see if they can be interested as well. We'll see. Bloomberg politics contributor Rick Davis again Democratic strategist Roger Fisk are with us today. Roger You spent a lot of years Working for the Obama administration, which spent a lot of time making the case for shovel ready jobs. Remember a long time ago? It was not always a successful message. Should the administration here the Biden administration embrace Something more traditional, including this $1.2 trillion deal reached By this bipartisan coalition last week. Well, that's the interesting thing right? And I think this is the genius of President Biden, starting with his higher price tag, as we did, because it's essentially already one right even if Even if he just throws up his hands and says, we will get bipartisan votes or we won't. It will still be the largest infrastructure package in a generation, so anything from here on out is essentially just to carry on Sunday. But I think he has all along been sincere. You know, the progressives have already always criticized President Biden and Previously, Senator Biden has Being far too willing to be bipartisan and jumping in on things like the crime bill and other things like that. And I mentioned that because I think he's very sincere and wanting this to have broad support. Doctor within, you know, within Congress and things like that. But, you know, as you hear there's an expiration date, right? The clock is ticking, and sooner or later, they can just do it alone and he wouldn't get away. Rick Davis, the by administration has has called a lot of deadlines here. We've drawn a bunch of lines now. Here we are in the middle of what is it June? Are you about to tell me about Joe Biden's genius strategy? Stop the clock. We've had so many deadlines pass that I don't think clock is a term that we want to use anymore. Look, the reality is that Joe Biden's a moderate right and he wants to do a deal with Republicans. He thinks he needs to to get This kind of legislation passed and right now he's given plenty of space for the moderate Democrats in the United States Senate to do Deals Christian Cinema and Rob Portman have been working hard on the current one. Shelley Moore Capital was the lead Republican in the previous one, and it's all merging. And I must say today was the most positive. I've heard a dozen Republicans out there talking about this. They all left this lunch today, saying, Wow, we could actually get infrastructure Bill. The downside is it puts a big You know, load on Chuck Schumer than to make the the Democrats especially the liberal wing of the Democratic Senate. Happy and that means a separate bill. Reconciliation, you know, for The carbon emissions and home care for the elderly. That's not going to make it into this bill, and how he pays for that is going to be really tough slog in his own caucus while as usual, Rick leads me right to where I wanted to go. Not all Democrats like the direction we're going in here, of course, especially when it comes to who Is going to pay for this. Listen to Senator Ron Wyden From today a Democrat from Oregon. Here he is. Most of what is being discussed in this effort. Would heap new taxes on working people. And it just seems to me when these mega corporations in the most wealthy Use the roads. They ought to pay their fair share. Okay? Roger Fisk. What does Joe Biden do with that argument? Every Democrat he loses means one more Republican he needs Well, I think a couple bridges and Senator Wyden State just fell off the list race with that little with that little cliff, But no, I think he I think he saved, um laser focused on the messaging around. No taxes raised on anyone below $400,000. I hear you when you lament the number of deadlines that we have had, But it pales compared to the 30 or 40 infrastructure weeks that we had with the previous groups someone had to say is an actual At least there's an actual piece of legislation. But I think the president just has to stick to his guns. And then to your point from a moment ago. Make sure that this is front loaded with a couple dozen projects that really can be employing people, you know, by September or something, because These things have to have an immediate impact, and he felt at the kitchen table no later than next day if they're going to impact next fall. You can say it out loud. Roger, you can say shovel ready on this program. I just can't. One of the big sticking points is climate, though we're going to get into this a little bit more later in the hour with Congresswoman Gwen Moore, But I want to hear from both of you on this initiatives to increase energy efficiency in schools or To invest in more energy efficient public transportation. Uh Roger, you work for a lot of years on policy with Senator John Kerry is now the president's adviser on climate. Are these efforts going anywhere? Is this a worthy Discussion to have right now. I think that the air War is the emissions and the larger industrial component. The ground war can actually be hand in hand with the job such as message, which is Reference fitting schools, doing some of those things that we talked about our infrastructure. One of the last things I did with Vice President Biden in the second, Obama and Biden administration was the core of port Let's apply directly to the 19 conversation with Secretary Gutierrez. There's a whole class of straighter right now running around the world that our ports aren't even big enough to accommodate where we've allowed ourselves to lapse into this obsolete infrastructure. That we can't even accept the biggest paraders running around the world in daily global commerce. We've got to get deadly serious about this. And yes, it's a challenge job wise, because it's going to require investment. Sometimes that doesn't manifest for two or three years. But it's the right thing to do. Records are about out of time. But is President Biden Going to regret spending time talking about climate change in an infrastructure deal. Well, it just depends upon what state you're talking about, because a lot of this is going.
How outcome of Georgia Senate runoffs could affect Biden's agenda
"Begin in Georgia, where results from the Senate runoff elections are continuing to come in. Democrats are set to claim another seat with Raphael Warnock projected to defeat Republican Kelly Leffler. Warnock addressed his supporters overnight. We prove that with hope Hard work and the people by our side. Anything is possible. With 98% of precincts reporting, Warnock has claimed 50.6% of the vote. But Lefler has yet to concede. This is a game of inches. We're gonna win this election. We're gonna save this country. War Knocks. Victory ends more than 30 year losing streak for Democrats in statewide run offs It also leaves control of the Senate. Up to the state's other runoff between Republican David Perdue and Democrat John Also off the contest remains tight, with all soft ahead by about 13,000 votes. Gabriel Sterling is Georgia's voting system implementation manager. There's a potential where some of these elections could be within a half a point, So the second place finisher will have the opportunity to potentially ask for a recount again. So I've currently has 50.1% of the vote. Well, Purdue, is it 49.9%. Some absentee votes have yet to be counted. And as many as 17,000 military and overseas ballots are due by Friday. President Elect Joe Biden's agenda hinges on the outcome. Jeannie's A No, is a Bloomberg News contributor and professor of political science at Iona College. All the things that you know Biden has talked about wanting to do. I'm not suggesting he'd be able to do all of them, but certainly you two have a lot better shot. If you have a Chuck Schumer controlling that gavel versus a Mitch McConnell. But even if Democrats do take the Senate, the majority remains small. More on that from Bloomberg News contributor and former McCain campaign manager Rick Davis. Just because you have the majority and you can set the agenda doesn't mean you get your gender past and their big, close sentence, close houses. It's only a 10 vote margin in the House of Representatives that Speaker Pelosi has so any given issue is going to have defections with levelers loss, Republicans must hold on to produce Senate seat to keep their hold on the chamber, though it may take days to determine the final outcome of that race.
Election Day 2020: Rick Davis
"Joining us live is Bloomberg's Rick Davis, partner at Stone Court Capital has run a good number of campaigns, including John McCain's 2008 Rick Again. Thank you so much for joining us. My pleasure. Yeah, The Democrats seem focused on Pennsylvania Joe Biden yesterday back again today, Camilla Harris today saying it be decided they're Biden claims it's his first home. Polling has been good. But now the NBC Marist poll today shows it tightening. Where does this stand? Well, it's on the horse race side. You can't tell, but it's been a very stable election. Even in Pennsylvania, Biden held the lead anywhere from 4 to 10 points, depending on which poll and at what point in this campaign. But that's the nature of this campaign is so unusual is how little has really changed lately. I mean, when you were tracking polls and you're only you know, seeing Ah pointer to tightening or loosening in the course of an election. It shows you a very stable electric. In other words, people have made up their minds and we've seen in the last month. People are voting in record numbers during these early votes, And so my guess is Pennsylvania. I would say. Friends toward Biden because he's never been behind in any public or private survey I've seen, but you know, we're see what happens on Election Day. Yeah, Also Florida I mean, for the most part of Florida Early on, and who knows early eyes? It goes for for Biden. They're saying that it's over. Yeah. If Florida goes for Biden, there's really no way for Donald Trump. To find a path to victory mean Biden start with some of the Trump states that he won before pretty much in Hiss. Calm. Michigan, Minnesota, Wisconsin. These are all states that Biden is right now tracking an almost 10 in some cases, 12 points. So you take those states away from Donald Trump. And he can't afford to lose those Bay States and the biggest one that he Has in play 29 electoral votes is Florida now have the two things have the pollsters learned anything since 2016 number one and have the Democrats learned anything since 2016 I'll take the last one. First. What the Democrats learned is that they needed to pick their spots as to where they need to win in orderto get the necessary electoral votes and And Hillary Clinton's campaign spread themselves all over states that were completely unnecessary. They had people in Arizona and other places the week before the election thinking we're going to turn Red States blue. What? What Joe Biden has shown is the discipline to park himself. As you said earlier in Pennsylvania, every surrogate he has in the country was in there today. And he's planted a flag. If I win Pennsylvania, I win the presidency and I'm fighting here. And he has Ah, just in just in the past hour in campaigning, talking to young talking to students, saying that they that they are the key. I mean, the Democrats have needed, you know, asking that question to motivate young voters. Michelle Obama's been beating this drum now since Since 2016 the young have to be showing up. Are we seeing that they will Yeah, There are record turnouts bank on Which state you're talking about in Pennsylvania is one of them where under 25 8. Voters are starting to show up in much bigger numbers than they did in 2016. Now whether or not that follows on Election day. These are all the early voters that we can track. But if that follows up on Election Day, the young voters could actually make a big impact on the state like Pennsylvania. OK, let's and and the presidency, of course, is what everybody focuses on the most for very good reason. But But let's let's look at the Senate here. I mean, if you're a Democrat, and you're looking at this, you're saying, Wow, we have a really good shot that this could flip. Yeah, His Senate is ah, Titan. There's no question about that. Republicans have probably five or six states where they have likely swings to the Democratic side, potentially. And they only have one pickup in in in. Ah, Alabama. What is interesting? State toe Watch is Georgia. Not only do you have a Senate race up for grabs, But you have a special election for a senator to Senate seats up in Georgia this year. And Georgia has a funky law where you have to get over 50% of the vote, or you go to a runoff. And at this point, neither one of the incumbent Republicans there look like they're going to be able to get to 50%. So you could have the control. The Senate decided months later in a special election on top of the special elections you already have? Yeah, possibly in in January. Now now vote counting. Of course, you know, we hoped to see something tomorrow probably won't. But the president has said that he may claim victory on on election night anyway, both sides of lawyered up. This could be a mess as well. I don't want to be negative, Bob, but but this could be a mess. Well, The good news is states run their elections and so unless they decide to defer to the president states, which would be extraordinary, right? No, no state Tends to do that voluntarily, then they're going to count at their own pace. In fact, we've never had an election where the actual elections certifications. We're on election night. They always take days later. In order to facilitate all the ballot collection and count all the ballots, And then the state certifies. There's there. It just simply doesn't happen on election night in any election we've ever had. And so I think that most of the states if their discipline and they follow their own rules, they'll pay no attention to the president's protestations. He did this in 2018 during the Florida governor's race where he said, Oh, you know, all the votes were counted, and we ought to just move on. We're Yeah, we're going to have to leave it there. Thank you so much and will watch for you and David and Jeannie. With our special election coverage
Changes in population of Arizona swings state more left
"This is a special edition of Balance of powers. Look at election 2020. I'm David Weston. Today We look at three critical swing states that could help decide who occupied the Oval Office next January. We start with Arizona once solidly Republican state that is now Maura, Va. Toss up. Arizona has 11 electoral votes and polls show a tight race. As for Vice President, Joe Biden hopes to become the first Democrat to win the Grand Canyon state since Bill Clinton did back in 1996. Or an overview. We spoke to Bloomberg contributor Rick Davis, who ran the 2008 presidential campaign of the late Arizona Senator John McCain. Four years ago in 2016. It was not a swing state, so it's one of those that have moved into the Swing column primarily because it changes both demographically in the state, but also ideologically demographically, I think you know, the increase in Hispanic population have moved it a little bit closer to the Democratic column. Hispanics make up almost a third of the Voting population now and on ideologically in 2016 trump one white suburban voters in Maricopa County, the largest county in the state. What really decides the outcome in states and in 2018, those same suburban voters fled the Republican Party, causing Martha McSally running for Election to the Senate to lose a Republican, so it's going to be an interesting ride there, but it's definitely a swing state this year. So if you say Maricopa County is I understand, you know better than I really determines the state. Largely. It's a really big count and a large portion of the voting populace. What has changed 16 4018 has the Democratic nature of Maricopa County's changes it more hetero genius than it was before is that they've changed their attitude towards things like immigration. Maricopa has been changing for a long time is one of those state or one of those counties. It's the city of Phoenix is in Maricopa County that has grown at an enormous rate. It's been one of the top five fastest growing counties in the United States for the last 15 years and is one of the top five of the largest counties in America. So it is a complex political beast. I would say What is starting to change is the Republican lock in the suburbs. In the past, we've been able to win the state by winning Maricopa. And if we are not able hold onto especially white women suburban voters in Maricopa County. We can't win the election for a perspective on what it takes to win statewide office in Arizona. We spoke to someone who's done it. Former Republican governor, Jan brewer. She admits the state is changing, but she hopes it hangs on to its conservative roots. There's a good chance that it is probably turning a little purple hair in Arizona, which is very distressful US Republicans, but the bottom line is is that we've had a lot of people moving in and out of California and other places coming to the great State of Arizona czar demographics. Have really changed. I think that we have to take that all into consideration were out there.

"If you have a majority in the Senate, as Republicans do, and it's pretty clear with the vote count, now that they've got the votes for whoever Donald Trump. Ah, points and, of course, people matter in this case, so that still yet to be seen. If it's gonna happen anyway, you gotta gauge what you're going to get out of it politically right now, arguably Biden's making progress on Trump's base in the suburbs. Don't screw that up with a big fight on a on a fate accompli essentially right? Right and look a lot of these, Um people who may be considering voting for Biden, who voted for Trump in 2016. Maybe pro choice or maybe pro life and you're threading the eye of the needle, especially the nominee to the benches. You know, one of the nominees who has a strong pro life record. Would you rather have a president in place or make a case in the next month before the Before the hearing, so I think there's very little to gain. I think there's a base element to this where they've gotta look like they've made. The Democrats have to look like they've maintained some someone's of base politics. They're not going to pick up any votes at this stage by putting on a show and trying to hold up a nominee. Right. Alright Rick Davis stick with us. We got a couple more questions for you. On the other side of the news. Rick Davis, partner for Stone Court Capital, former Republican strategist and Bloomberg contributor. It almost reminds you of like the sports metaphor of like you sort of. Let the go ahead and let the other guy score because you'll have a little bit more time on the clock. If you can control the ball. Yeah, absolutely. That's a really great way of explaining and also Rick as being the former manager of Senator John McCain. We want to ask him about Cindy McCain's endorsement of Joe Biden what he makes of that, because she was certainly.

"As it's Republican senator. Still with us our contributors Rick Davis and genius I know. So, Senator Thank you so much for being with us. Appreciate it. Give us your sense right now of Nevada, where it stands in this election. Why was it a RNC convention party yesterday in northern Nevada at an opportunity to talk to a number of Republicans. I think the base is still there. You Condell by the convention today that the purpose of it is to try to expand that base. They spent the first three days kinda solidify that base on it. Now it's time to reach out that last speaking that you guys just head on. Alice did a great job. But you can see they're trying to push this now beyond the base. A and and time will tell. We'll know here, probably with the next few days with some pulling that out out there how well it works. So, Senator, you know your state terribly well. My understanding is part of the reason that Nevada has been shifting as it appears to have done in recent elections is there's been a change. Actually, the demography, people moving to the states and people living in the state give us a sense of how the demographics of driving the politics Yeah. You're absolutely right on that. Things are actually really changed here in the states about it. People are really Trying to get outside away from California, and you can see with technology and the data driven ah, diversity that we're doing the economy here throughout the state. We're getting a lot of new companies coming in from the Bay Area and busts Angeles. They're bringing their workforce with us. These are good people, but they have a tendency of bringing their boarding voting habits with them. So it may want to get out of California, but they seem to want the same law. So anyway, it is changing. It is changing, and it's making it difficult for the conservative voice to get out. There just means we have to work harder. And as long as we're committed to do that, I think we're gonna be just part Senator Heller, how our people on the ground and Nevada feeling about the security of their vote. As they look towards the general election. There was some consternation across the country, but I've noticed some coming out of your state. Specifically. Are you hearing some of that? It's probably right now. This is Jeannie. Correct. This is this is probably the number one issue right here in the state of Nevada. They just changed our election laws allowing for voter harvesting harvesting, meaning that a stranger can come into your home, Help you vote and then walk out of your home with your ballot. I mean, what could possibly go wrong with that scenario? You know, Jeannie, that has been a felony since the 19 nineties here in the state of Nevada, and the Legislature just turned it into good governance. There's a lot of people that are really concerned about what this vote harvesting is going to mean and what impact could that have on a viable action here in the matter? Senator, This is Rick Davis from Washington. Good to see you tonight, and I want to ask you about the economy in Clark County. I mean, Clark County is like a critical county for US Republicans and And no industries were hurt Mohr through the Koven, then hotels and restaurants, of which I think Nevada and Clark County is ground zero for the most employees in this category per capita in the world, probably Is it recovering? How's it looking? And is that impact going to be felt in the election? Actually, Rick. That's probably the most important economic question that we have in the stand about her right now, If you've seen the data, they're anticipating that 25% of the hotel's chains out there behind in their rent payments and making their mortgage payments. No difference in Las Vegas. Now he's had 40 million people come into Las Vegas every year, and we're seeing baby. A fraction of that 20% 25% of people are willing to get on an airplane to fly into into Las Vegas. Right now we have about 11 hotels, major hotels in Las Vegas that aren't even open. Because there's not enough business to keep trying to draw people into war into under the strip and get to some of the more thie some other casinos where they could get a traffic out there, But it's difficult. I'll tell you right now, Rick, if they tell you that the unemployment state Nevada was 12 12.5%. Double it double it, and you're probably close to where we all set now in the state of Nevada. So, Senator if I could just follow up? I mean, how do you think that falls on political levels? I mean, obviously, part of Donald Trump's record as president so far has been to be able to create jobs he ran on that it was one of his kept promises until Covad. Is that unemployment? Is that advantage Democrats or or or they're going to say, Well, the guy who's going to bring us back eyes going to be Trump's. I'm going that way. That's a great question, And I'm not quite sure I do know this. I do know this Trump It has a business plan that's out there. Today. You want to create 10 million jobs in the next 10 months. And he wants to create a million new businesses in that same period of time. Now, tell me what binds you know. Playing it explain is to convince you that he's not Donald Trump thinks that that may get him elected. He has no business plan out there. If you look at the markets right now, I think the stock market trading at the highs and it's at right now is already discounted. I think they believe Trump's going to win. To be more specific and answering your question. In the month of July, we had the new reports for new voter registration in the state. Nevada. More Republicans registered into bed it, They're Democrats. And this is what happens. I think when weakened the culinary Union's the teachers unions with so many people unemployed right now they have less volunteers to get out there. And two registered voter, So everything just stays the same. I think you feel A moderate to conservative that a tilt until these unions can get back into business to answer your question. I think a lot of these unions A lot of these organizations have a tendency of voting to the left. People have lost their jobs or going back to the states. Where where they came in. There's a lot of people in the battle. Don't believe they're from Nevada. They say I'm from California. I'm from Michigan. I'm from Florida. And they're going back right now. With the level of unemployment we have right now telling you all of that. I believe it does help Donald Trump. I think it's the base the Democratic base that is hurting in this in this reception and that they're losing their actually losing voters as we speak today because there's no jobs in southern Nevada. I want to keep our audience up to speed on what's going on the convention..

"President, But he has appeared every other night of convention, so we'll see if we see him tonight and we come to air. What is going on outside the convention takes on special significance both in Hurricane Laura, which is due to hit the golf course shortly after tonight's session. And in developments in Kenosha, Wisconsin, where the killing by police officers of Jacob Blake has led the violence in the streets helps that the stage welcome now our political contributors Rick Davis, former campaign manager to the late Senator John McCain, and partner at Stone Court capital, and Gina Xeno, political science professor at Iona College, so it gives a sense. You have really run these conventions before. Does the convention try to take into account the hurricane and specifically what's going on? In the aftermath of Kenosha, or does it try? Go on, anyway? You can't ignore a good hurricane and in 2008 When we were running the McCain campaign we had a hurricane in the Gulf Coast on the first day of our convention, and we canceled it s O that we would not take any of the nation's eyes away from the Gulf Coast. Hurricane Gustav was on our tail in those days, and now it's Hurricane Laura. So sure you have to address it. People are going to be under siege. Texas is important place and frankly, they're probably more people watching the weather Channel tonight and watching the convention. Well, don't say that, Rick. That's a little cold, Little Gold Jean. It's not just the hurricane is also what's going on in connection the aftermath the president actually ordered in National Guard Mohr, National Guard Today, and I mean, now we have the NBA suspending games, some major league baseball games and suspended too. Yeah, absolutely. And I'm really curious to see how the campaign decides to address this tonight. And of course, the vice president is going to be speaking law and order is a major theme for the campaign, and it's going to be curious to see how they thread this needle because, of course. Donald Trump has been very, very critical of people kneeling, for instance, during the Pledge of Allegiance, very critical of black lives matter movement. So how they thread this needle and at once say they want to keep the country safe, which is the argument they're going to make, and they want to be sensitive to people who are dealing with this storage of Police violence against African American men and already I need to correct myself. I said that Mr Blake poor Mr Blaker was dead. Of course he's not dead at all has been paralyzed, was shot seven times by police officer in the video we've seen He's in the hospital, and all of our best wishes are with him and his family at this difficult time. Rick Davis and Jean you, Xena will be sticking with us. The police shooting of Jacob Lake in Kenosha, Wisconsin, has led to violent protests and sending in the National Guard as we've said, and then late today, eh? NBA players have refused to play tonight in solitary with the protests. The MBA playoffs were suspended and is spreading to nationally. Baseball with game suspended there as well. We welcome now. R. Bloomberg White House reporter Mario Parker, Samara. Thank you for joining us. How is the White House reacting so far to what's going on, both with the shooting and its aftermath, but also with the special sports leagues. Well, so far, the White House as you, you know that David the president sent tweets out earlier, saying that he was sending federal troops are law enforcement to Kenosha, Wisconsin to assist He also used that opportunity to repeat of an attack that he's live against other Democrat leaders where he says that they all they have to do is ask him for help. And then he'll come in. Visa VI Minneapolis earlier this summer. So we expect the vice president to address this issue tonight. Yes, we do have actually we just got word that the vice president will at least reference thie unrest It's going on in Kenosha mean it's hard to miss. And it's hard for the White House to ignore it, given the national attention on this issue, but also the attention it's been given during the convention in terms of law and order and safety. I just interrupt you, Geum. Sorry. We just have a headline out now the Bloomberg President Trump is arriving at Fort McHenry for appearance. So we know, Vice present principal speaking from there now credit Trump will be there with him. Oh, interesting. So it's his appearance for the day, I guess or for the night. Get convinced, Mario, I wanted to ask you, you know, Does President Trump run into any difficulty here? I understand what you're saying in terms of how they want. Use this to their advantage. But he also is president. He is the incumbent president. What happens in Kenosha, Wisconsin, that is a state in the United States that he is governing. How does he indeed explained what he has done over the last 3.5 years to address the problems with policing that these protesters are talking about? Well, Jeannie. It's actually quite frankly, one of his the soft spots in his presidency right now that they've been trying to shore up and in terms of the speakers that we've seen come out of the convention to talk about some of his his issues on race and trying to shore those those weaknesses up in the minds of voters, But also I mean, this is something that's kind of dog, the president This summer. He it's a twin crises that he's dealt with. That's really ravaged him in the polls. That's been a Corona virus pandemic and then has been a racial unrest..

"I'm here with Bloomberg contributed Rick Davis in jeans and I'll invite vice president Joe Biden has just taken Massachusetts so we talked with earlier Jeannie that's one thing you didn't expect anything that is I I think the shock for me tonight is who would have expected Bernie Sanders and senator from the neighboring state I mean we were just before the from the state we were just in New Hampshire Joe Biden did not perform well and all of a sudden he comes through tonight and he captures Massachusetts one of I think the eight states he's now won tonight and when we went into this last Friday we weren't even sure he was going to capture you know a few of these states he's up to eight at this point do you have an explanation Rick yeah so it's very hard to explain I mean just a few days ago the the polling firm five thirty eight made a prediction that Sanders would win I have a sixty three percent likelihood of winning Massachusetts even Elizabeth Warren only had a thirty percent chance they didn't even include by then the reporting on that so it was one of the things that clearly something happened over the short period of time probably since South Carolina and and it's just a loud democratic primary voters to rally around Joe Biden in a way that I don't think anybody would have projected at this stage in the meantime Gee we have a little bit of uncertainty in the two states the Bernie Sanders really counting on right now it's Texas and California reports in Texas are was a lot a long lines people are still voting to get delayed down there and then we have Bernie Sanders on California going to court to Los Angeles county and saying please hold up close in the poll because we think that number is going to vote yeah the again once again long lines and maybe machine trouble out in Los Angeles and we had heard reports about this in California going into the primary today that there could be some you know some trouble at the polls and at least the Sanders team is reporting there is so this thing could extend out a couple hours if the judge grants the orders a review run some of these campaigns that Joe Biden nine in asking for the post of the kept open Los Angeles got it is it is it's perhaps litigation maybe Bree Sanders might think he's got some troubles well look if he's running a lot of votes through that part of the state and they are having some problems with the machines and it's a totally appropriate thing to do if they are closing the polls at the appointed hour eight PM and there are people in line they put markers in those lines you don't ever get denied your right to vote the question is why is there a line and I'm sure that's what the Sanders folks are trying to determine it is also highly unusual for court ever ruled against these kinds of requests because what they will do is they will sequester those votes that come in after the deadline and then make a future determinations whether they should be included in the count so something for you in your class politicize call and listen to what I own absolutely absolutely and I think it's also interesting because of course the you know Joe Biden is doing really well with people who are voting today the fact that Bernie Sanders wants to keep those polls open and there's Hey this is Jay Farner CEO.

"President president trump leaving the White House are there in the White House on Rick Davis still in play back to stir it yeah that those were not like comments and will bring headlines as they are relevant Rick Davis still here this partner strong core capital national campaign manager for John McCain's two thousand Republican presidential primary campaign is that a number of jobs at the national campaign manager for mackenzie thousand eight presidential campaign which goes back the idea you know some things about South Carolina this is to just go back a lot of the new thread on me yes how do you see it playing out **** **** potentially have a race where all of the candidates have some delegates or is it going to be predominately between Biden and Bernie or how do you see it well the the Democratic Party sets up a system to allocate delegates proportionately so it is easy to see a scenario where today Bernie Biden Bloomberg all come out with delegates and Elizabeth Warren too I guess and although her play may only be in places like Massachusetts where she is well known right you have to get above the fifteen percent overall vote threshold to get delegates right now according to public polling my kids that Mike Bloomberg hits that in most of the states and Bernie and Biden do but a list with Warren still below that threshold and almost all the states other than our own so all those people likely will be go bring home delegates the question is how much distance between the front runner in the pack being you know Bernie being the front runner right now and the pack being Biden and and Bloomberg is it going to be created with delegates themselves right because up until this point time you had less than a hundred delegates picked you know California loans going to quadruple that and so the delegate count itself is what we'll be talking about tomorrow not the polls you know not the not the sort of you know how many states are available it's like how many rod delegates you gonna have right leaving super Tuesday and so after today we look at the delegate count what else we look at on the rights we because we've got keep me honest here Michigan we've got George we've got some other big important states wrapped it in I think you've picked up on something that most people tend to miss because they're so keen on following like super Tuesday's really cool it's fourteen states plus American Samoa I'm still trying to figure out worst America's smallest and in in Google is for I can tell you okay Google I'm a Republican born in the nineteen fifties for me but but I think in this case in this situation in the democratic primary the last ten states that that not that that that elect delegates are going to probably be more important than anything ten states right now just because by then it will likely be a one two or three man race right in in in those states could actually determine who has the momentum going into the convention especially if you don't have someone already with the presumptive delegate totals fifty one percent going into the convention so we're gonna brokered convention what you know right now if Mike Bloomberg continues to spend a lot of money and get delegates which we would anticipate him doing today and Bernie doesn't run away with it and certainly next week states like Michigan he's going to do really well in that state birdie birdie well yeah but by not having a great moment right right so it's kind of a scramble back in those days right and and then back south where we'll be strong right in so you can see a situation where mine could do really well today maybe still be a little bit behind Bernie but not much Bernie does well next week bye does well the week after that the next thing you know you've got this model picture going to conventions warned drop out soon you know I think that she has to be able to do better than just getting telling us our home state right and so she says she's going to go to the convention she wants to make a point so Bernie did last time against Hillary Clinton and people didn't like it but look at now he's leading the charge in this delegate selection process so you know arguably she has a lot of money coming in she's got a strong group of supporters and she wants to make a point unfortunately that probably hold some of Bernie's growth capability down a little bit because if she still holds on the ten or twelve percent that's that's most likely what I gonna vote Bernie all right only got about a minute left Rick Davis history doesn't repeat itself but it tends to rhyme what does this remind you of this reminds me a lot of the Republican primary in two thousand sixteen AM where we started with seventeen candidates they started twenty three we we got it down to about like where it is now around super Tuesday and and what what happened in the Republican primary was that a lot of these candidates who are not going to win state in the campaign like we were just talking about Elizabeth Warren and it modeled the picture to the point where we got a nominee Donald Trump who prior to becoming the presumptive nominee had never won a single one of these primaries by more than thirty five percent interesting and so in other words strange things can happen strange things will happen yeah all right well thank you so much for David supporters can court capital Bloomberg contributor and just a political expert really enjoyed that conversation great all right coming up back to the virus yep we talk about the virus will

"We talked to an all star panel of campaign professionals Rick Davis who ran John McCain's presidential campaign in two thousand eight and Jim Messina who ran Barack Obama's in two thousand twelve but first an incendiary report in the guardian has triggered calls for an international investigation the claim that crown prince Mohammed bin sun mon sent a private watch app message to Amazon's Jeff basis and that the message included code that led to a massive unauthorized export of data from the business phone I asked David Kirkpatrick founder and CEO of to Connie media what he knows about the story well it's a story that convergence a number of important stories Sabroso the technology talk here one of the major issues is cyber security is of growing concern to everybody and one of the reasons for that is the quantum computing is suddenly coming on faster than anybody would have expected and you said when it really gets perfected cyber security is going to be an even bigger challenge but the issue with Jeff pay those phone which by the way has been validated in in a number of ways eight research shows that he hired has done forensic analysis of this phone and found very strong evidence that crown prince didn't Solomon did send a message that was had a video that has a secret code embedded in it that probably wouldn't even had to have been clicked on in order to download software engineers phone that would gather the perpetrators access to all of these messages and photos and everything on the phone so in the U. land has shown active concern on this with you releasing a report that basically says they believe themselves these are you want top experts that this is what happened and that the Saudi crown prince is likely involved ports we knows of all this is that he sent a message do we know whether he knew what was in there I mean what level of sophistication is there is a possibility just some hacker gives a video that had the Senate nobody knows for sure what he knew obviously he's very good at hiding what he does know about anything but the circumstantial evidence is expensive that there was some connection to the murder of your marker show he and the fact that I showed you before his murder was working for The Washington Post which update those phones and you know there are also significant piece of evidence that were cited by the US officials that other associates of jamarcus show you were targeted with similar software during that same period so on this is circumstantial evidence but considering that the US elegant services have concluded that the crown prince was likely involved in the murder of the show he is hardly an extreme stretch to start giving some credence to the circumstantial level it's not just that Jeff faces on the washer posted the washing has been very outspoken in criticizing the Saudi regime and the crown prince personally because of the involvement in the crucial G. affair right and then they will surely critical of the Saudi regime even prior to the murder you shall be even be on the show these columns themselves so you know you can see if they could have easily angered the crown prince but but the reason that this seems so likely tied to him is that the video that is now was she found has been found to contain the malware was sent from a what staff account that is controlled by the crown prince and it happened shortly after the conference and Jeff pesos exchanged phone numbers at a meeting they had in the United States and phone numbers of the key connector for what that messages so you know it's it's not truth of anything but it's very scarce distance at all give what's apple Facebook a black eye or could this have happened to any service well it gave up a black light to some extent you know there's this company called SO group based in Israel that has software called I guess this which is known to have been used in purchased by the Saudi government and what has sued that company for of the fact that they have targeted what's up specifically with what is considered by Facebook to be an illegal penetration and Facebook which owns what sap has had the problem in what that allows that software to function in that way so this same kind of attack would not work the same way today however the the whole industry of fiction encrypted hacking malware that is intended to give it a listen access to someone's phone unfortunately it is a very sophisticated industry but continues to evolve and develop new tools so we can not by any means no that it's impossible to do this sort of thing the effect it probably still is possible unfortunate but Facebook isn't happy about it they have done everything they can to patch it and to go after the company whose software is responsible that was David Kirkpatrick founder and CEO of taxonomy media you're listening to Bloomberg balance of power on Bloomberg radio coming up I talked to an all star panel of campaign professionals Rick Davis who ran John McCain's presidential campaign in two thousand eight and Jim Messina ran Brocco bombers in two thousand twelve we'll talk about where things stand in the

How will Trump's impeachment affect November elections?
"Even as the Senate impeachment trial is set to get underway president Donald Trump touts his economic success while at the World Economic Forum in Davos on Tuesday he said that the US has regained its edge against other nations in areas like trade job creation and energy when I spoke at this forum two years ago I told you that we had launched the great American come back today I'm proud to declare that the United States is in the midst of an economic boom the likes of which the world has never seen before Rick Davis we were talking earlier about all the other things going on in addition to impeachment the the broad expectation is that president trump will not be convicted he will stay in office finish out his term with all that being said the presidential election coming up what is the game here what are the Democrats to take it from that perspective hoping trying to accomplish here well I do think there's a element of trying to change the narrative trump just had a big success signing a trade deal with China that he said he was gonna bring China to their knees and arguably he can he can declare some success and the ratification even in the midst of all this impeachment of the U. S. M. C. A. the trade deal between Canada and US it's quite a feather in his cap I mean he's gonna have a signing ceremony while impeachment is going on showing the American public that he's out there doing the hard work the presidency in in you load on top of that low unemployment and investment breaks great stock market records and and he's got a story to tell that that doesn't include impeachment so I think the fact that the Democrats have made a huge gambit on saying we want to start this year an election year talking about impeachment means they have confidence that somehow this is gonna nor to their benefit sure they're gonna tell yeah all we're doing this because the right thing to do and the country needs to have written you know this this this catharsis because otherwise gosh this guy will be uncontrolled and the remainder of his presidency but the reality is this is all about elections and there is an election in ten months and regardless of what happens with impeachment there's gonna be an up or down vote on Donald Trump and and Democrats I think believe that somehow this is going to help them I think the jury's out just like it is on impeachment Craig when all this is said and done in a few weeks months whatever it is how would one define success for Democrats here is it winning over a few Republican votes is at getting John Bolton up there and and saying embarrassing things about the president what what how would you define success is they're they're democratic fetching involves trying to get no Republican votes the expectation is that if you were down from twenty sixteen you're still gonna go from a twenty twenty year dug in your ear dug in deep and you're gone you're either going up with the server down with the ship this is all aimed at those moderates in the middle and again as we talk about every cycle rate can talk about it better than I can even but you know there are those I think it's people things maybe ten or fifteen percent people kind of in the middle who are like you know twenty sixteen act much care for Hillary from kinda like the cut of trump's J. about love that guy from the apprentice he seems like a real decisive guy I'm gonna roll the dice and take my chances you know three years and they're like oh my gosh what have I done they don't let you talk to Democrats when they do focus groups people say they talk about the tweets like I don't really like to tweets which is become kind of a substitute for like I really like his style like he's got a real not very nice to people in the in the you know whatever so I think that the I mean it's a kind of I don't want to sound so cynical but a lot of this impeachment is aimed at maybe that ten percent fifteen percent twenty percent of the way outside the Democrats think are persuaded bowl you know former trump voters are people least took a took a walk on the trump side of the street maybe could come over to the Democrats and really want to dirty up trump as best they can you know he was he was shady and that way you don't Ukrainians and etcetera I think it's a huge gamble I think you know again as we just talked about a last second if you are not exactly riveted by the impeachment yet at least so far and I think Democrats put a lot of chips on this particular square it may work it may not but what they have what trump has is always of Rick said great economy two or three good trade deals and and a real you know telling his back yeah I would say just to add to that is that part of the play for the Democrats as defensive right I mean if you blow see the speaker of the house did not want to DO impeachment and it was the left wing of her party that forced her into it I mean she resisted resisted and she finally caved in because the one thing they can't afford is a disenfranchised base right I mean Hillary Clinton lost in states like Wisconsin because she underperformed what Barack Obama got there by eight in this case in two thousand sixteen she got two hundred fifty thousand fewer votes than Barack Obama did Donald Trump got twenty thousand fewer votes than Mitt Romney did but was able to beat Hillary Clinton that state because she didn't turn out base so a lot of the democratic strategy is fire up that base make sure they're happy if they deliver at the scale that they did for a bomb it's very hard to see a scenario where Donald Trump wins Craig this of course is going on right is were approaching the first presidential primary in Iowa it is there an easy way to describe what impact it's going to have on on the primary especially with some of the leading candidates not all of them but some of them here in Washington and sitting quietly in their seats drinking well yeah sort of at the tactical level it's a great day for Joe Biden or people to judge because you're not a member the United States Senate and so you're free to is moved to Iowa for the next two weeks and and set up shop for the senators running obviously Sanders and Warren called which are really Michael Bennett is still running for president someone told me today so I guess for senators you know it's it's actually trick here I do think out of the more on the strategic level though this is kind of baked into the cake for democratic primary voters and I will you don't really here the campus talk that much about it it's kind of understood of your democratic primary voters like accepted that you don't much care for Donald Trump weather's being in Peter not impeach or convicted or acquitted it it's all it's sort of like the backdrop against which the whole campaign is being run so the the rallies I attended when I was in I was people I've talked to it doesn't come up that much but I do think it's on the front of the minds of primary voters in one important way which is we need to find a candidate that can beat Donald Trump that's really good news for Joe Biden let's goodness for some of the others but that is really the the sort of the driving force behind the caucuses in the primaries are to come Rick isn't about thirty seconds if you can we get to November where is impeachment in Ukraine where to those rank on the panoply of of the issues that voters are going to think about when they well I think I'm on a piece of it I mean we blow through issues so quickly nowadays because of the mass media and how quickly we cycled through things that I would be surprised that the trend actually carries much weight November I would say though that that that Ukraine scandal will continue all right even though impeachment will end in a couple of weeks they'll still be reporting about these crazy deals that we're trying to be struck and what was happening so I wouldn't be surprised if Ukraine has a doesn't have that were porting on it doesn't have a bigger impact in the impeachment itself okay my thanks to Rick Davis former John McCain national campaign manager in Bloomberg contributor in Craig Gordan Bloomberg's Washington

"Just about everyone saw it coming the house voted yesterday to impeach president trump on two counts with the trial coming next in the Senate but what are the political ramifications president trump speaking in Michigan last night said that he thought it certainly isn't going to hurt him in Michigan and now the Democrats are very upset they want to get Michigan back they just don't know how to do it because they didn't do a thing welcome now Rick Davis his political adviser who has run several campaigns including when John McCain ran for president two thousand eight Mister David Davis I'm proud to say as part of the Bloomberg team covering the twenty twenty election welcome Rick good to have you here thank you that is great to be here so let's start with were president trump was right now on the question of appeasement that's that's percent what happens because most people think they know what's going to happen from here on out what do you do for him in those critical say state of Wisconsin Michigan Pennsylvania help hurt irrelevant yeah I mean you put out a really important factor the the the presidential campaign will not be fought in fifty states it's going to be fought in certain battleground states and and I thought I would add a few Arizona is a good example of a new state that was a battleground state last time here and one that that will be this time at and I think that's that's the reason you found president trump in Michigan last night while the vote was being taken I mean that on its own that's kind of a historic moment where the president of the United States is rallying his team around his narrative on impeachment while the house of representatives and having this historic moment where they are only for the third time in the history of our country voting for impeachment and I think the juxtaposition of that was really stark and and I think you have to look at all the factors that go into these these states the targeted states the the battleground states and what's gonna turn them or not trump in in fact is defending his win last time around in those states so the onus is really on him to hold I would say economics votes in his favor but politics hasn't and so when you look at some of the things are going on in those states whether it's job creation manufacturing or even issues related to other softer she's like climate you have to look at who the swing voters who's going to who would be eligible to vote for for for Donald Trump yeah in their own mindset and what is what's driving that those votes I I would like to remind everybody that that he won four states by a margin at a little over ten thousand votes each state so this is really a razor thin margin that he had in the past so Rick you are I think the perfect person asked this question of and that is that razor thin margin if you gonna turn that is that substance and policy or is that frankly the process of really run the election because some people certainly criticize Hillary Clinton for example for not going to Michigan toward the end last time around they they she sure took it for granted if the next democratic candidate makes more of an effort in Wisconsin Michigan Pennsylvania could that make the difference without regard to the policy sure I mean we like in my business in the old days would like to tell everybody that campaigns matter right there is a little self serving but it was true right I mean if you don't campaign in the state like Hillary didn't campaign in Michigan and you don't spend resources their money and put people in there why do you expect to actually pull off a victory lot of people that were scratching their heads in the Democratic Party as to what her strategy wise yet she was spending money in places it seemingly weren't competitive so that campaign matters she did not deliver a good campaign in that state and then she lost as a result of that so sure it's such a tight margin that the campaign's going to matter but so are the candidates right well we know Donald Trump we've gotten to know him quite a bit in the last few years he shows up in Michigan last night he's got a raucous crowd the stocking them up they love it and there's controversy immediately within within his rallies going after you know the
