"Patriot mobile pendant of the week of courses. Salena Zito she is out with a couple of great columns of morning. How are you? Good morning. I'm awesome. How are you? I'm good. The firefighters have disappointed. Donald Trump in Virginia disappoints conservative tells about both of those. You know in in Virginia. They're big challenge going on for those parties, you know, in terms of. Find founders Democrats have really. I think that turn probably nice. Only would happen. Tenant governor. And then the attorney general, but also in how that whole sort of problem with handled. It was bad. Dad it happened. And then it just sort of goes to voters. It just went away. It was not truly addressed. And it's left developers. Hanging. Republican party the section of Ed Gillespie point. I. Candidate for a couple of cycles. Candidate for your. Obviously has some questionable at these values about what talk and so both parties have left voted hanging. And they both have an opportunity to win back or just keeping unhappy with their decisions you pointed out that the blue part of the states becoming bluer and the red part of the states becoming hander. I've noticed that too. Now that I'm Virginia. But there are more conservative moving northern Virginia. Now as the Trump years bring great level. I mean, you can't walk around Virginia without seeing help wide hiring. Now, scientists credible three percent Virginia unemployment so that matters. But also Barbara Comstock thinking about running for governor. But so Terry McAuliffe who wins that showdown. Makarov is the only democrat not marred by this succession of scandals. Yeah. That's absolutely true. And. Having a successful governorship, and and has kept himself away for the Democratic Party sort of shenanigans in terms of always down all ripping on on the president. And you know, and and he did a decent job as a manager of a sort of an executive of the state as opposed to an ideolog. Yeah. She's a good leader as well. That would be a great race. But I quickly what you to explain to people. Why the firefighters are upset with Selena? Zito patriot mobile pundit of the week. Why are they upset the wise? The president upset with the firefighters union. Firefighter union because as many firefighters pointed out to me as well is that the union leadership takes takes takes us division and stands behind, you know, Joe Biden, right? But it they're. So guess connected from the men and women serve in the cities and towns and communities across the country. You know, they're they're not happy that their leadership toque this position with backing by and terminated excellent point by by saying, look, these people the men and women that essentially within Washington live on K street at working outside K street. And they're the ones that made the decision support Biden, not rank and file and he is right. I mean, he has only saved those eloquently, but he he does have it, right? I can't I don't understand leadership of unions when they separate the president should get the UAW's endorsement the way he's fighting for Lordstown the way he is actually very connected, and you can see this in the polls with union members in the private sector and the public employee unions. Absolutely. The union of work to working family is really connected with the president. And I think you're gonna see one of two things happen. Here is the Democrats destroy Joe Biden in a primary process. And this is the union leadership that told me not even rank and file leadership knows that if the Democratic Party is either successful industry tr- by in a primary and anywhere by left. He stayed. He goes on winning from his route. They are going to lose. The working class union family voter, and that includes not only the worker, but the entire family. It's a very to sort of those right? Well, said follow salena Zito on Twitter at salena Zito just tweeted out to calls from this week read them both. And if you like what Salinas does say, you will love being a patriot mobile member. Don't go with big mobile. Switch away. They support the left. They support the reelect the election of Nancy Pelosi..

"Don Taylor, Kathy. Kiernan crystal Berg, I mean, I'm I'm with, you know, leaving all kinds of folks out there people that have been dedicated at the conservative Republican costs for decades that have built this thing. And so again, we've got a pretty good base to build off of we just kind of allowed the grassroots. And that trick what I refer to trick LOP elections atrophy a little bit. And we just need to reenergize that. And I think you understand this from what I've understand from the county chairs that I've talked to you've been calling all of them, and and you understand their strengths. And how important they are to this movement. Absolutely. And we we did have the candid for you a Senate that was calling the Republican party. The establishment Wilson, I there are some status figures in any state party. But the vast majority of the grassroots county chairs that the people that work at the county lever a level. I mean, they're tea party, folks. I mean, they they are hardcore conservatives, and you know, there's there's really not much establishment in terms republicanism in Wisconsin. I in no way sink that the conservative movement is dead in Wisconsin. Live where I think back in two thousand ten that campaign, again, I'd never been involved in politics. They say like, you say never gave a speech until I gave that tea party speech, but you know, all the parades Iran in my messaging was about freedom. You know, it'd be shouting kinda like Braveheart freedom, and you and we're mortgaging our kids future. It's inter generational theft is wrong. It's immoral. Gotta stop that. That's what I'm shouting on the parade route. And I won it resonated with people p p people are so concerned about the fact we are mortgage, our kids future, certainly in Wisconsin. We are unfortunately, you know, political leadership here in Washington DC, pretty well, ignore the problem. But the I tell you the grassroots in Wisconsin have not. But can I get you real quick on on trade? And and and how we're how Washington is doing on it. I know the president has made some dramatic changes. What are your thoughts going forward on trade? Well, I'm glad we have an agreement to replace NAFTA. As extremely important. I'm glad we have a truce with Europe right now. It sounds like we're making progress with China that they are the main problem, particularly the intellectual theft. You know, the cyber theft of not only industrial but military secrets as well. I mean that is the number one problem right there. But with NAFTA act up we were supposed to do away with the steel tariffs. We haven't done that. I'm highly concerned about that. Because that is doing some some real harm. It's that's that's gonna drive manufacturing offshore into areas. Where you don't have those steel tariffs. So those companies can actually compete globally. So I I'm highly concerned that this president has certainly shown a lot of. Fortitude in terms of taking this as far as he can go. But you know, I cannot wait for him to conclude these trade deals, so we can return the stability and certainty that he brought to our economy with his deregulatory moves as well as more competitive tax system. The whole trade war has provided a lot of uncertainty and instability. I think is one of the main reasons that we've seen, you know, the drop in the stock market if we can conclude these trade deals move forward with a better more reciprocal type of global trading system. That'd be very good thing. Or within the administration about this? Oh, yeah. We talk Fairmont. I find with both Navarro in lighthizer, the president knows kind of where I stand I write him letters. I give him the one page synopsis of businesses that are are really being harmed by this. So they're they're fully aware of the fact that the clock is ticking, and they need to conclude. These trade deals sooner rather than later. We're all looking at right now is China Senator Ron Johnson of Wisconsin. Thank you so much for joining main street meets about way on Sirius XM potus one twenty four I hope to have you back again soon..

"We really are things. You really understand because you're such a grassroots guy because you're such an outsider, even though you've been elected twice by I called your election two thousand ten and two thousand sixteen one everybody thought you weren't going to win. I can remember in two thousand fourteen after walk over one re election that I wrote a piece then. I completely forgot about until I went back to Wisconsin in the summer of two thousand sixteen and I wrote in two thousand fourteen that was kansin was going to give their electoral votes to a re whoever the Republican candidate was and was one of those rare moments that was right. Assuming is I went around all the Lincoln day dinners, and you know, and put in sixteen eighteen hours a day campaigning. As laid that out as the primary goal is the top the number one goals, make sure that our ten electoral votes, go to the Republican candidate for president whoever that person might be know ended up being Donald Trump. And you know, also talking about how you know, the only reason Harry Truman one elections because he had six Senate Democrats that perform him in their states and kinda helped him over the finish line. And to extent that happened, Wisconsin. I did garner seventy four thousand more votes than President Trump and we helped each other. I mean, he helped me certain as state, you know, Sean Duffy has really solidified. The congressional district up in the north west and Mike Gallagher is taken over where Reid Ribble left off. You Paul Ryan has taken pretty much a blue congressional district. Now Brian styles able to win comfortably down there. So you're are members of congress. Jim Sensenbrenner course, the dean of the delegation, but it's those it's the strong grassroots effort that the county. Structures. The the county chairs people I.

"She's a thirty six years old. She has two children. And so it turned out well for us. But instead of talking about over-regulation, I told that story and afterwards people did come up to me. Hey, like, your speech won't you run for office. And I would reply because I'm not crazy. But, but then they, you know, they passed ObamaCare, and I started thinking about it started talking people about it was told to attend Americans for prosperity convention in the. Dell's in March two thousand ten and that was so inspiring to me, I I, you know, all these speakers Michael Reagan, we had Lord Monckton. I mean, just this is the height of the tea party movement actually on drive down there. Her Jim demint being interviewed by Glenn Beck. And Jim was saying we do want new members of the Senate. But we want people that are willing to come here. And join the fight not the club and that resonated with me. And so I started thinking about little more seriously about running for the US Senate and really didn't decide till the end of April early may, you know, through my hat in the ring got endorsed by the Republican convention sixties after announced in kind of the rest is history. But what was unique about Wisconsin is I sprang from the tea party. But I realized you know, there is no structured tea party as a political party that would be the Republican party. So, you know, I'm saying joined the the Republican party, and in Wisconsin, there really has not been much difference between the outside. Groups the tea party groups, the conservative groups, I would say even libertarians and the Republican party. We all realize that the alternative is our liberal, progressivism. And so we're pretty much on the same page in that has been very success. We have a very strong grassroots effort. Now, we were certainly energized by ObamaCare and President Obama's over each in two thousand ten and energy does tend to dissipate over time, which I think is part of the problem and in two thousand eighteen where we lost statewide, although we did retain strong majorities save the semblance state Senate. Our congressional Candice won very comfortably when we were concerned a couple of seats are at risk. But I think, you know, I'm I am sort of last man standing, which is what you point out in your article is it's a role. I never sought. But when I take very seriously. So as I'm talking to people throughout the state, I think one obvious thing we have to do is reenergize that grassroots effort. I think you know, the governor and. You know, his kind of top down approach in terms of campaigning is is what we're hearing. I don't think that inured to his benefit. So we just need to, you know, build on on what success we did have reenergize at base that grassroots effort, and and really build it back up to I think it wasn't twenty sixteen where it wasn't twenty ten and then hopefully, not let it atrophy ever again. Remarkable about Wisconsin. I've covered Wisconsin for years, by the way, one of my favorite places in Wisconsin is the dells and the Paul Bunyan restaurant where they give you they'll give you a babe the blue ox hat, and it's kind of awesome. And there's a rodeo right beside it. So if you're ever in the Dal's, that's the honky tonk part of the Dallas. But seriously worth it just kind of Las Vegas, About Nevada. it just keeps growing. Supply fishing. You definitely need to go to the drift Louis area. Because damn it's gorgeous there and the drift list is because a happened because somehow glacier didn't flatten out that area. Is that is that what is isn't that? Correct. Is that how the story goes censure of that particular area, but we had a lot of glaciation which does make our state of very interesting and beautiful state. But what makes Wisconsin most beautiful is just the people? Just commonsense. Nice folks. I can't tell you how many times people say, you know, I went into lambofield with my Cowboys jersey and people are so nice to me. Okay. We'll help that we beat you. But that's which is very nice people..

"But it's just track full, of example. After example, of these types of organizations often started by somebody who you know, who has found their own redemption, oftentimes, very faith-based, but they've turned their own redemption into an organization that helps people transform their lives one person to time. And again, the we do do that is through the dignity of earning your own success, and Selena there's an added level of dignity that you know, we we do put a little pressure on Joseph project participants because we always point out. The fact the only reason that you're seeing the pews today in for example, the sixty fifth Joseph project class is because the participants in class one to sixty four actually succeeded. They they got the job their employees took a chance and and it worked out for them. And so success breeds success. And so we we point out the fact that not only we have the dignity of earning your own success for the benefit of yourself and your loved ones in your family. But you all said that added dignity, and I call it joy of knowing that something you're doing in your own self interest is going to benefit some in the future. You don't even know. And it has that is just so true though. Those those participants in last Monday, sixty fifth class the Joseph project were there because other people's succeeded in all those people that succeeded should be pretty darn proud themselves a really important point. And and that is the joy of earning there. There is a complete difference between someone handing you something. And you earning it for yourself. You know, I can just remember earning my first paycheck, and I was thinking this is so much better than my parents giving me money. So you guys you're listening to main street meets about way, I'm Selena Zito a reporter and columnist at the Washington Examiner. You can follow me on Twitter at Selena Zito. I am thrilled to have a Senator Ron Johnson on with me. It was kansin. You can follow him on Twitter at Ron Johnson. RO n. Jail. H N S O N with a w I at the end, representing his home state. So Senator Johnson headed story this past weekend. An interview that I did with you about the state of conservatism in Wisconsin. Oh, one of the things. I I noted in Wisconsin way back in two thousand nine that. This was the heart of the new conservative movement, the new populist conservative movement at the time. It was part of the the part was branded the tea party. And that's where you came up as as someone who was considering or actually you didn't even consider Iran. I think the first thing you said when someone said why don't you run? Are you crazy? Is that correct? I'm not crazy. They do it. Talk about your talk about your journey because I don't think that you even decided to seek the nomination for that US Senate seat, which at the time was held by wrestling gold rest Feingold. You didn't decide until a couple days before the nominating process to throw your hat it? Right, right. It's actually pretty short story. So yeah, I come from any factual background. I'm counting by education, never giving a speech in my life, but was involved in my community. And and our county chair who I serve on the chamber board asked me to give a speech to the tea party. You know, scotch October two thousand nine and his business person. Chew on me talk about the the harmful effect of overregulation. I'm business which I could spend hours talking about. But that's not what I want to talk about a few weeks before she asked me. I'd I'd heard President Obama talking about doctors trying to sell his ObamaCare monstrosity time about Dr saying how? They would take out a set of tonsils or amputated foot to make more money. Now, I found that unbelievably offensive my first daughter our daughter carrier. I trialed was born with transposition of the great arteries a pretty serious congenital heart defect. So according to President Obama on those green money grubbing doctors came in at one thirty in the morning the day of her birth and saved your life that procedure and then eight months later when her heart was the size of small Plum, seven hours open heart surgery, they re baffled the upper chamber of hearts or her heart operates backwards day..

"Starting to save for retirement buying a car. And you know, that is what's been to certain extent surprising to me is is we've dealt with these individuals as they have transformed their lives. The fact that they had no idea all these opportunities existed. They really had never experienced this. And it's it's just it is transformation their lives, which is why say it so incredibly, heartwarming. On the city of Milwaukee, certainly has had its a share of hybrids of poverty, high rates of crime and unemployment what have participants in the Joseph project told you how it's impacted how they're seen by their peers in their community one things I attend is the the first day of the training out of Monday. We'll do an alumni panel. And one of our alumni was a gentleman who'd been in prison for nine years for murder and got outta prison under, you know, found out about Joe's Pradesh's, he's one of our stars is only been working for about two or three years now. And he relayed what his life was before this where he would tell his girlfriend give her a gun in. Don't don't worry about aiming to shoot when I come when I come in the driveway. You see somebody moving through launch shoot shoot shoot. Because that person might be trying to kill him because he's banned the streets. He's been probably dealing drugs. He's got. St. money, and it it's a chilling tale. When you realize that now, he doesn't have to worry about that. Because even even on the street, they realize this person is working he's actually earned that it's not street money. He's not really a target for murder now again again. For for somebody like me from Oshkosh, Wisconsin never never been exposed to anything like that is really quite shocking. But that that is the reality of people that are living in the inner city that are just trapped in this drug culture and living on the streets and living off the streets. That's what they were dealing with beforehand. And again, this this individual has completely transformed his life and does he serve as a mentor? I know you said he he will. He was part of the alumni group. Do they mentor other people that come in to be to participate in the Joseph project? You know, your first of all by just you know, attending that on my panel being one of those alumni, he's, you know, for new classes, certainly laying out what his past was. And and how what works transformed his life. But one of the aspects of the Joseph project is we provide transportation Sheboygan's about an hour away. Now. It's it's frustrating me. It's okay. You can have a job there. You've had it now for two or three years. Why don't you move Sheboygan? Well, they. Still have family in Milwaukee, his girlfriend doesn't wanna move. And so they avail themselves that transportation, but the advantage of that is there an example in their community and all those individuals Ryan that bus between the inner city, and and their their jobs wherever it is in the state of Wisconsin. They're reinforcing their commitments to succeed. They're they're telling stories, and and they're being supportive of each other. So it's a very again, there's no government funding. And here there's this is not a government program. It's just a US Senator in my staff volunteers their time to do this. But they are in the in and of themselves self-reinforcing and providing a support system for each other. Talked a lot about programs such as this and just civic programs in general that make communities stronger that make families stronger, and and re-, and I think the importance of replacing government assistance with programs like this is healthier for, you know, a communities stability, but also dignity when you become part of just, you know, solely relying on the government. There's something that is demeaning and about that that you almost become resentful of of who's giving you the handout, so I think the the Joseph project by the way wonder if they gets its name. I'm glad you asked that question there. There's a great book. And I'd recommend it to you listeners by Robert Woodson senior, it's called the dry. Triumphs of Joseph. And it is just a hundred four three pages..

"Or cross for prescription drugs. Get on the list, they need help with those costs. And and if their employer is not going to give them a pay raise. We ought to try to give them tax now. I know a lot of people don't like doing that. They don't like pull it out the tax Bill again and all that I get it. But I think we need to help need to focus on what middle class families have to obviously there's a lot of a lot of work. We can do a bipartisan way on healthcare, and I said by partisan, and I meant it. I think people there's despite our disagreements on on some of the repeal debates. I think there's a lot we can do together to get the cost of healthcare down to deal with these individual problems in the system instead of fighting about healthcare, we should be wanting to expand it and bring costs down. So it's just a short list. That's pretty it's pretty impressive list. I think it's why list that most people would actually agree with. I know you have to jump Senator Casey. But I need to ask you one critically important question. Did you go to the farm show yet this year? Hey, do they went Saturday. I've been doing this out public record. And this is gonna hurt my political career buying and say I to milkshakes eleven fifteen in the morning. Did you did you have the chocolate in vanilla mix? I had of own of the second one. I had was the MEK. Did you have an Amish down to wash it down? No this. This is the first year that I because I was I was going from one stop to the other. I never and never got a chance to stop for donuts. I'm I'm shy. It's I have to figure out a way to get one is three or twenty Senator Bob, Casey. Thank you so much for joining mainstream meets about way. I hope we get to do some nerdy historic tours. Tune. It's always a pleasure to have you. Join the show look forward to the next time. Senator Casey Bank. You so much Selena look forward to thanks. Bye. Bye. I am so excited about my next guest. It is Senator Ron Johnson of Wisconsin Senator Johnson. He just won reelection in two thousand and sixteen. He first one in two thousand and ten and Senator Johnson. Thank you so much for joining me on main street meets the beltway. William how you doing? I'm doing awesome. So the first thing you want to talk to talk to you about two things today. One of them being a rebuilding the conservative movement. Although I don't think the conservative movement is is dead and Wisconsin, not by longshot. You you still had a great year in Wisconsin. The Blue Wave that everyone was predicting didn't exactly sweep over the state that you did have some problems. But the first thing I want to talk about is the Joseph project, and it's for something that you have been involved with for how long sir it's we're going on three years, but it really came about yet. I've been in manufacturing for thirty years, and it's been a challenge hiring people into manufacturing environment. You tell all. You have to get a four year degree kind of implies that you. You know fact, you work or going to the trades is is sort of a second class status thing. Nothing could be further from the truth. But the bottom line in Wisconsin is a big manufacturing state and since I've become centers. I travel over the state there's not one manufacturing plant that I visited that can hire enough people. And so you realize there's all this opportunity all around the state, and yet we have these pockets of of high unemployment in places like Madison and Milwaukee. So, you know, just talking to my staff making that point, you know, endlessly through a bit of serendipity, a one of my staff members Orlando Owens is part of the greater pries are greater pretty church God in Christ and knows passer drums Smith, they started talking..

"But you also performed obviously Senator I mean, well, she was Senator which was also former first lady and also former secretary state and democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, but you also outperformed President Barack Obama in our State, John Kerry, Al Gore and Bill Clinton. I mean, while I mean, I'm gonna be honest. I'm just gonna say damn that's pretty awesome Senator, Casey. Well, we're we're we're blessed to have the of the chance, you know, you outperformed also every red state democrat, and you have hinted that you might consider running for the democratic nomination for president in twenty twenty. Where are you without knowing you, you're probably considering it? I did say consider, and I have I think it's it's it's not likely that will happen. One of the one of the reasons is that that. You obviously have to make a decision that to to for to run in a race. Like that is it's my new mental not writing is not like running statewide. I've run a lot of state by Alexis. They're really there longer difficult. They're tough. But I don't know what how many multiples of that you have to compute to get to a presidential election. Is it is it's ten times harder twenty times. I don't know what the number is. But it's it's a lot a lot more difficult challenge in the kind of time it takes you have to weigh whether or not that's that makes sense in terms of your work and temperature obviously your constituents in your your family one thing that's different. I guess about my circumstances. Someone who said that that I would consider it between me, and and some others who are in the congress are in the Senate or maybe maybe up in a state house the governorship. Sometimes when a candidate is is around a while people say well that president run for president. And then there's an election that that can you know, that that is kind of baked into the determination that voter makes voters vote for Senator of selling. So they I made vote for them and their man for president. But that's I know that in my case that wasn't a I don't think that was a consideration by by voters in that that kind of the obligation that I have to constituents but also the allegation that I have to. To consider that that that wasn't baked in or factored in when people are voting in the twenty teen election. So that's I'm in a different place than a lot of other number of other people who may run and twenty twenty because some of them are reelected with their voters knowing that might happen in my case that was not the case in that weighs heavily on me. Because, you know, constituents have an expectation of of how you're going to serve them and how long, and that's that's a substantial factor weighing against doing anything in twenty twenty four. I wanna talk to you. You know now you have an I don't wanna use the word freedom. But there is this sense of of freedom. I suspect that you have at after winning your search term to to really step back and look at the things you want to accomplish in in the US. Senate looking forward. I did sort of wanna ask you a little bit about this controversy that that popped up over a judicial nominee over membership in the knights of Columbus. And I wonder if you wondered if you had any thoughts about that you and I are both practicing Catholics on the knights of Columbus is for the most part known as a pretty do goodie organization who helps out a lot.

But, but, but they are often instructive in and if they're not instructive released, inspirational, I that's that's one of the values of learning history than you realize that the people that went before you get some pretty difficult things took took difficult scenes and worked hard to. Bill country that we have have forced necessity such an integral part of our history along with Jim on Ville, Glenn. I don't know if they took you up there, and you did fort excessively did see that minefield, Glenn is actually where the first sort of shots were fired for the French and India war at its and while it was between Washington who was with the crown at the time and a group of against a group of French soldiers. No blood was shed, except after they took the front, the the French captive for some unknown reason the half king who was an Indian scout for George Washington decided to scalp, the French Lieutenant jiman- Ville, and that is what ultimately led to the battle at fort. Sesame and these are two pivotal moments in our history. And yeah, it's it's it's yeah. Totally earning out here. Sorry saturday. A good thing. So since we're looking at a rear view mirror right now, you created a little your own history. This past November. Will you became the first democratic US Senator elected in in Pennsylvania to win a third consecutive term? Yes, it's a great privilege to to who have had that happen of ember. And I'm grateful to the people for that. Getting a third term. It's hard in any position. Include included Republicans who have have done their terms since we had so-called direct election being the people vote for the Senate or not the legislature, and you know, from your own mastery of our history, we have more years. The legislatures elected the US Senate than we've had direct direct election. The first direct election was nineteen fourteen. But between seventeen eighty eight and nineteen twelve I guess we had legislatures electing the US Senate. But since since I think fourteen there have been former senators that had the privilege together term. And so I'm I'm one of those four, but it is a great privilege, and it's not it's it's not something that doesn't come with a lot of hard work. But also a lot of good people helping along the way and month in voting for him blessed?

"Obviously based on just looking at California where it took. I mean, I lost the will to live waiting to see what the what the results were going to be in California. Because you know, they took a month to get back. Phil. Are these are these seats where you are going to actively look for quality candidates to run in. Honey, you convince them I mean, how do you say, hey, yeah. I know it's really crazy out there. But you know. Inspiring people for that sense of service has to be a challenge for you. It is a challenge, but we just visit a country needs them. And that we will be there to help them. Get funding the one I'm really working on hard is young Kim. She great candidate who was an open seat. We lost that one kind of at the at the goal line as well, very close. So she should hopefully come back already talked to Steve night to see if he'd be willing to come back some hoping that a group of members that will be ready their heels a little bit. And then there'd be ready to reenter the fight and win at this time. Let's talk a little bit about women women, you know, in leadership in Washington. Do you think that the Republican party needs to do a better job in in placing women in leadership in leadership positions in both the Senate and the house I was in the GOP house? We only have thirteen women left. So yes, they need to get the women out there as much as possible. At least the fauna congresswoman from Cal. From New York is doing this whole big initiative that starts of fun to women who want to run. But the man needs to make sure that the women of the GOP both in the house and Senate are from ancestor because the Democrats are not the only ones that have women at congress, and the message seems to be getting lost. And we've got some great power for women that that, you know, I hopefully their voices will be hurt. No, I believe you have three new women in the Senate this year. We do we do something. Sally. It's great. The Senate is a little bit better than houses right now. And we're thrilled to have that most of the women in the Senate aren't members of Republican Nancy partnerships. Were you happy to see, you know, Martha mcsally did not win her the seat that she ran for an Arizona. She ran for. It was a really hotly contested race. It was a race between two women and she alternately lost by. But not that much correct? So yes, we're thrilled to have Marsa. Excel even though she'd lost. She was very gracious in her speech, and we're thrilled that the governor selected her and now Arizona has to be mouth United States senators that is amazing for the state who had never had a females a US Senator now has to one from the democrat party and one from the Republican party. You also have Marsha Blackburn who won in in Tennessee. Yeah. Let's just wrap this up. Again, you guys this as main street meets the beltway. You're listening to Selena Zito a reporter and columnist for the Washington Examiner. I'm so thrilled to have Sarah Chamberlain on with me. She's the president and CEO of the Republican mainstream partnership and the founder of the woman to woman tour. You're you have a big challenge ahead of you.

But it's also convincing suburban women that the Republican party has their back and has their best interest at heart. Does exactly my number one ever between now and the twenty twenty election psycho is to visit many suburban areas in this country and talk to the women. I'm a suburban mom myself. I understand or issues I understand their questions, and we're here to answer them. And also explain to them that they need to consider take a look at the GOP 'cause we're doing some great things.

"If you don't get have it you should inside the populist coalition reshaping American politics. But as we, you know, as we outlined in the book is this is a conservative populist coalition. And you know, it's it's a new coalition. And so there's there's there's parts who have never voted together on on on issues. And and so I just sort of wonder, you know, what what if if these voters if these suburban voters who are tempting tend to be conservative, but not populist how how they stay. You know, do they stay home in twenty twenty twenty twenty do they do they vote, you know, out of frustration with Trump? Do they vote out of frustration with who the? If the Democrats pick, you know that sort of the unanswered question. And as you said if anybody's, you know, answering that declarative laid the then they're just an and they end up being right, there just aren't lucky. But, but you know, as Brad has said to me, the the key for Republicans is to get the populace to vote that their cause. And for the conservatives to vote their values on an and I agree with my my business partner on that for sure I think that in terms of conservative voting their values. It's it Nancy Pelosi with the gavel actually helps that quite a bit. Yeah. It'd be just you know, the wolf is at the door again. Now, we'll see what happens. I couldn't even tell you. How long over the next few weeks or months or longer on? On this shutdown. But but the the upside of that is that once again, it's gonna ref- recast and reframe this is and and as for conservatives, which are you're right. There's the populace and the conservatives this read this recast that you don't if you're a conservative has questions about, you know, President Trump's tone and tenor, but you supported him in the past because hey, you know, he's run against Hillary Clinton. Once again, you see the consequences of of of elections and that I think works in our favor Anderson founding partner of on message Inc. I definitely want to have you back on to talk about a Cory Gardner in Colorado. I think we should I think we should hit that up the next time. I have you on is one of the most interesting, and sort of had I always think of him as a happy warrior. I have never seen Cory Gardner without a smile. Even if he's. Chewing you out he's smiling.

"I think that cruise ended up winning Hispanics, but he lost the suburbs. Do I have that? Right. Yeah. A well at the we don't have a post elect their that confirm that, but all of polling leading into the election would suggest that was true. And you look at where we you know, where we got really hammered in the suburbs predominantly with with white voters. That's that's that was where crews really got pizza. Dallas suburban Dallas loses that seat Texas thirty two I was doing doing that race tough tough loss guy. Pete sessions guy really great guy guy really enjoyed working with working for over the years. But we got hammered there a fluent overwhelmingly white suburban voters Abbott won it. But you know, I think crews either tied or lost the thirty two Africa back and look by by point or so, but he should have won that by seven or eight. Right. So we're you're you're pointing out a really weird thing here. The the problems we had in Texas had to do with suburban voters, and that was true, you know, all over the country. So my question is, and I don't know that, you know, the answer to this, by the way, you guys you're listening to mainstream meets about way, I'm Selena Zito your host reporter on columnist from the Washington Examiner. And I have on the great west Anderson, not the director who's not as great as west Anderson, but the strategists. Pollster and partner founding partner of on message. And and so I wanted to ask you if you. In these midterms these voters these afla white voters who tended to whose natural home has been with the Republican party. Do they did they did they go over to just test the waters or are or are they part of the realignment of both parties? Well, that is you know, that is the only question that matters. And I'm not going to pretend that I have a definitive answer on that. But that is one that every Republican pollster like myself, and every democrat pollster for that matter is trying to trying to figure out we'll leave the pundits to make the cleared of statements about what's, you know, whether or not that's the you'll one way or the other I would say that. If you look, I I can't tell you. How many focus groups we did this cycle in suburban among suburban voters. I mean, it just was the number got absurd. But. Those would tell me, and it was quite a few in places like Orlando and Tampa in and the suburbs of Kansas City in the suburbs of Saint Louis and in Columbus, Ohio in in Cleveland, Ohio. I mean, you just all over the place, those focus groups of white suburban voters would tell me that they have not made a long-term allegiance switching allegiance. Yeah. They have never been happy with the temperament and tone of President Trump. They felt is though the Republicans had failed to meet any of their expectations over the last two years. They were very critical. But at the same time, they were just as critical of Nancy Pelosi who this afternoon is once again speaker of the house, so. So our saving grace may be that the Democrats won the house and that they elected Nancy Pelosi. That's an overstatement. But that leads me to believe they the same voters have just been they may who who their most critical about who. They're most vocally critical about depends on who's in power. And it may they may very quickly move back to being very critical about Pelosi Pelosi and democrat leadership. I don't think that I suspect that there has not been a long-term switching allegiance with these folks. Mostly because of what's in there. Again, what you pointed out what's in their self interest. At least economic ry is more in line with the Republican party than the Democratic Party. You know as Brad, and I wrote in the book that great revolt..

"I can't remember the democrat the guy who coined the term back about a decade ago, the coalition of the ascendant arguing that that demographically, the Democrats were going on in up in a in a some sort of permanent governing majority coming out of the Obama administration because it was a a coalition of a sizeable majority of women sizeable majority of Hispanics, and a and in overwhelming majority of voters, you know, under thirty five or under forty the coalition of these senators has since completely fall apart on the Democrats. So once again demonstrating that never fall into the trap of declaring that that you've won forever because it does not true. But that one of the biggest problems that they have faced in sort of that. That whole thought in in in in there an end in the backbone of that is is there Bader form of identity is that increasingly Hispanic voters refuse to play along. And the reason for that is the Hispanic voters in the United States are really far from monolithic. There are very distinctly different culturally different voter groups among Latino voters. That's a microcosm is exactly what is true in Florida, those if you look at at ethnic background Cuban Cuban Americans in Florida are pretty distinct group, well, so or Puerto Rican Americans in Florida, and then you have, you know, so the Puerto Ricans Cubans, and then then you have a whole slew of of South American Central American communities in. And they all are. I think the the assumption that Democrats we'd like to say, look, the Democrats actually take kind of a view that's classically racist on that. They say these are all these voters all same. Well, the truth is they're not even close to that. And so simply saying, hey, you need to vote democrat because Republicans don't like Hispanics fell flat, and it fell flat for for the Democrats in going after Rick Scott in ten and then again in fourteen and then again in eighteen because Rick Scott is actually delivered for for those voters those voters care about well, they're disproportionately entrepreneurial in in Florida. They in. I mean, just if you just gonna do it as a percentage Hispanic communities have a higher percentage of of business ownership than than the not panic voters. And so, you know attack structure. That's fair to small businesses and a state regulatory system that doesn't punish them. It means a whole lot to those folks. And that's in in Rick Scott promised that he would he would reform both the the state tax system and the and the regulatory system to stop punishing small business and he did in. That's a really important point that you hit on. And and and and a consistent message that I heard from his Hispanic voters over and over again in Florida they own small businesses. They work at a family business that their cousins uncles own. It's very community. It's very almost a throwback to rust belt America a hundred years ago, when you had large migrations of people from like, Italy or Ireland or Poland, and they all owned, you know, sort of small businesses in in those areas, and and and the tax man is is not their friend, and the less government that they face and the person who is talking about that is more important to them than than the politician..

"I remember I can't remember the exact percentage, but it was just by a hair, but he did win it as the final vote was tally in the next day. Or so, but but it's gotten better since then you all the way down not just that the at the at the statewide level, but down all the way down to the county level to you know, county election. So that state has has, but it's still challenging because it's book end by two very large metros with heavy suburban influence, Saint Louis on one end and Kansas City on the western end. So there there are still challenges. But it's certainly moved our way. So the story of the two thousand eighteen Senate and house elections was the suburban right? It was it was a suburban vote. And in Florida's a really good example there, obviously we won. We we were inside it with inside a point after after a painful reelect or a recount actually to two recounts. Although I gotta tell you, and I I know the Democrats knew the same the day after the election is we dug through the data. We realized okay. It's it it it. It's like a ninety eight percent chance that that we're going to win. I know the Democrats do that too. But they made us go through three weeks of hell, which almost ruined thanksgiving. Anyway, I know, but, but I think Florida's a good example. And it's a good example for for a couple reasons, obviously Trump wins the state by by one. In sixteen and our polling. We we have done obviously, the governor of it was done. Just a ton of work in Florida over the last oh almost two decades. Now are polling has had the president's numbers. Very very consistent all the way through the the eighteen election's. You can take a survey in Florida state wide survey voters, and you know, depending on what's happened this week. He'll either be a net minus two or a net plus two on his image. And it doesn't really move them much past that it really is stays on the very tight range, and it's a state where you look at the the Trump coalition, and and the people who made up the winning coalition for the president in places like Pennsylvania and Ohio in Wisconsin. And you think well that doesn't apply to Florida, Shirley? Well, actually, does you look at the especially. The just the explosion of turnout in the more rural? We we'd like to say rural. But I I would debt doesn't the population. Densities don't quite fit that definition perfectly. I would go with small town because somebody's can't some of these counties in Florida where where trumps turnout was the turn out really spiked for the president in sixteen aren't classically rural. But they're not they're not classically suburban either that populated with a dotted with small towns in in. So that looks a lot like the Trump, which, you know, well, Trump coalition a lot of other places that came out in eighteen as strong as ever. And, but, but there was a unique piece here in the reason that Rick Scott was able to defeat Nelson in this race and kind of bucked the trend in the third. Biggest state was because well we did suffer some some attrition. Some significant attrition in the higher, density, suburbs, the suburbs. The more fluent suburbs of say, Tampa and Orlando by our own polling, and we in fact, we did a Hispanic only postal X survey we tied we tied Hispanic voters, which is the pulled story of that race in one that the Democrats are not too interested in talking about. Because obviously if you can if you can tie Latino voters in in Florida than that bodes well for just about any Republican statewide candidate presidential candidate. But that made up for the the loss of the suburbs. That's that wasn't true. In a lot of please. But what's true in Florida? So what do you what is it about? Rick Scott that he was able to do that. Well, here's a look there's a couple pieces here. You know?.

"I just ignore it. It's worse souls go to die. But. And west we I oh my goodness. When did we first meet? Oh, it's been a ways back. I'm not sure. But two thousand six when sounds about right. We're right after he. It's right, right. It's about the same time that I met met Brad when he was pouring his sorrows into a I think it was whiskey or bourbon. I'm not sure. Bourbon. But I'm something that smelled foul over the house low losses in in this midterm elections. And I think you and I met not long after. Yeah. No. I think that's a that that that's exactly right. And I'm sure it was bourbon and those were brutal six and eight all these young young guys on at least on my side of the guy on the Republican side who got into politics after two thousand eight they're all freaking out about eighteen. I said, you you guys know nothing this is that we can manage. We will work through this. This is not two thousand six or eight. Yeah. Absolutely. So how many seats did to Republicans lives in two thousand eighteen I literally lost count. Because I, you know, California. I don't know where they hand counting them. What's going on there? How many districts we long? Yeah. Oh, we broke. I guess we broke officially do. We break forty. But. Yeah. No, the California law. Is just a ridiculous. And of course, the Democrats we learned we were doing. Rick Scott's race against a Bill Nelson in Florida the Senate race, and that went into recount, and the Democrats filed what was it thirteen lawsuits and stayed in federal court what they really were trying to do. They knew they were they they had no chance on the recount. Although they're really trying to do is. They were Chad trying to get a federal ruling that when a allow them to change some of Florida's law towards the new California laws, which are just best. I can I'm not a lawyer. But the best interpretation is the law allows us to keep counting till we get what we want. Didn't happen. No. That didn't happen to you had some really great success stories this year, you were did the polling for Josh Holly in Missouri who was victorious over Claire mccaskill and for Rick. Rick Scott over Bill Nelson. And I can remember the day before the election and a call Brad who is always a hot mess right before the election. And he's like one percent or a head one percent. I believe it. I believe it and that helped completely trip. Yeah. We are tracking in the last week had us consistently at it actually just inside one percent of about eight tenths of a percent. Now ended up being even a little closer than that. But you know, anybody who's a student statistics knows that there's a little bit of luck in there because we're inside the margin of error, but we did consistently in that race habit. Really have us consistently up in a very very tight race turned out to be accurate. Same. We had the same sort of accuracy which alley. Oh that one was a lot easier. We knew that that was likely to be a an early night in Missouri. We knew that going into the race. So that which was certainly less stressful. What was the margin at the f- for the Holly win in Missouri? We we we needed up with six healthy one that's a healthy win. And it was tracking that way all year. It really well, it broke it broke early summer. We we'd been we had we had had us up all year, but it was tight, and then it really broke loose early summer. And they they have spent us significantly in not just the casco's campaign when you add up all the Democrats super PACS versus the Republican super PACS and the campaigns. They still outspend significantly. But you gotta remember that Trump won the state for almost twenty and purple Missouri in the last decade has been getting redder. You're so yeah, I think in two thousand and eight didn't make McCain everyone the assumption at the day of election day, two thousand eight was a bomb one missour-, but didn't McCain end up actually winning it. Days later. Yeah. Yes. And it hasn't it's it's gone in the red direction ever since it has it has McCain ended up..

Great stuff from David Ray of the federation for American Immigration Reform. Really? Appreciate the chance to talk to David. And always appreciate the chance to talk to salena Zito as well. Joining us now on the Hugh Hewitt Show. Salena, pop France company alive from Cleveland where he lives, by the way, I supported Baker Mayfield from day one. How are you Selena? Good morning. Bob base to be of you. Does he ever tease you or create fake news, though, about you the way he does for me? It. You you like I'm sorry about the delay where we're talking over one another because of the labor you likes you likes to create a few fake news items about me each time. I have me. I'm just wondering if he does it everybody else or if I'm special. You are absolutely special. But he does. Tease me about being from Pittsburgh. Of course, you're yinzer. Well, I guess what? I'm I'm sitting here in Cleveland. I guess I have to join him in that one. So I apologize. You're going to get you're going to get it from all sides now. Selena. Let's let's talk about shutdowns, and let's talk about border walls. I'm sitting here. And I think most of America that is paying attention to this is sitting there listening to Nancy Pelosi. Tell us that it's immoral to wanna have American sovereignty to enforce American security of our southern border to try to stop eating number of drugs and criminals and gang members, and cartel members and human traffickers and yes terrace and coming across southern border since when is it immoral to try to protect the sovereignty of our country Selena. Well, it's not immoral. Of course, it's not immoral. It's it's it's part of what we're supposed to do in terms of protecting ourselves. And as you said our country and our treasure, which is our our people. And and so I I would I would say it was a poor choice of words. But I don't think it was unintentional. I believe that you she wanted to project. That that that sense, even though it's untrue. Because that's where she believes that her base is. But unfortunately, she when you're up the house, the speaker of your party. Speaker of all four hundred thirty five members. And you know, I think she calculated when when she used as that verbiage, and she's probably going to come back and regret that you know. Selena Zito joining us from the New York Post in Washington Examiner when you when you listen to her that type of language, I agree with you. I don't think it was an unintentional choice of words, quite honestly, I don't think she regrets it at all because I'll take it to ticket to Rashida to leave the freshman congresswoman from Michigan who came into office on our very first day and called the president a mother blinker and saying we're going to impeach the mother blinker. I think all language that they use right now is is completely intentional. I think they want to try to dehumanize Donald Trump to make him into the monster, the boogeyman that everybody should be afraid of because it's the only way they're going to they're going to be able to stop him. I think given the the economic growth in this country, the jobs and so on and so forth at that continues. It's the only way to stop him in two thousand twenty. I, you know, I always find it fascinating. Political party. It is that would they win. How people like them all over again. Well, that's not allowed. They why they weren't is November they won because people wanted to put the brakes on you know, they wanted to slow things down because they were unhappy in part with the president's comportment. But the the Democrats, you know, they didn't listen to why they were putting office. They believe that they're put into office to create this chaos. People. Don't want chaos and they don't want instability. So once again, Washington, we keep sending Washington are votes in Washington keeps Mitch rating them. And so, you know, the the Democrats think that this is time to you know, sort of you know, run around with the flag around. Around the around the district because and behaving this way. Either calling through immoral or calling the president a few choice words, but this is not this is why do people in the suburbs? Who are the ones that put them into power put them in office? And and and I think that I think they're going to have a problem right out of the gate about a minute ago Selena. Let me ask you about an Alexandria Cossio Cortez. She was on sixty minutes last night continuing to advance her green new deal ideas things that we completely destroyed. He added states economic infrastructure, as we know it the energy sector would be completely gone all of the fossil fuel industry would be gone and so on and so forth, and as well as let's go in tax, the the wealthy in this country is highest seventy or eighty percent is she truly the face the new face.
