"Back on the campaign trail. It really kind of amazing with Walter Reed eight days ago, and he did a rally last night. That was as extraordinary in the rallies of 2016, which stunned and amazed most people. I'll play. A lot of that. Just know his energy is like it's remarkable. Itjust is remarkable. Meanwhile, Joe Biden head perhaps the worst day on the campaign trail, which I'll play for you in a second, but I want to begin with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who had is one debate with Amy McGrath last night, the Democrat Bobo doll They sent up to be against her and she's a Marine when she told him million times and that's great. I respect her service. I'm a civilian. I always say that. But, man dont go into fight with Mitch McConnell unless you are prepared to actually lose if you know if you're doing this for the good of the party, find Amy McGrath. I saw you for it. But okay, here's 28 Mitch McConnell taken apart on policy ground Well, what she supported after the carriage. Zach was the so called Heroes Bill over in the house. $3 trillion and which included in and by the way tax cuts for rich people in New York and California Healthcare for illegal immigrants. And by the way that bill that she supported that they passed in the house after the carriage, Zach Provided more money for Puerto Rico and it did for Kentucky. In spite of her best effort. She's a national Democrats. She is in line with Schumer and Pelosi and all the rest on all of these issues. No, she is and she's going to vote for Chuck Schumer, Mitch McConnell and lays down this cut. 29. My opponent said she's the most progressive person in Kentucky. What does that mean? That means they want to stock the Supreme Court. In other words, add numbers so they can get an outcome that they like. She wants to make the District of Columbia ST. Puerto Rico, a state get rid of the filibuster in the Senate. In short, there's not a dime's worth of difference between my opponent and all the national Democrats. Did you watch if you give them control of the government? That's what they'll do. Yeah, Bitch. That's all you need is one more cut cut number 30 because she asked him ridiculous question after ridiculous question. Here is the last thing I play from Mitch last night, 30. Give me a few seconds center if you don't respond to that that was a little bit out of order in time. You mean to our ghost calling? Yes. No. All right. I know I'm on Louisville, Lexington throughout the bluegrass state. I know. I got a great Kentucky audience. You have the best senator going. The guy who runs the Senate is the master of the Senate, say the Constitution four times. And you've got to send him back because Kentucky not stupid, but it's fun to watch. Anyway. Over you you at dot com I have listed links to every one of the Senate campaigns that can use your contribution. Now, if you want to be strategic Trust me on this. If you want to be strategic, and you're a Republican you go to and give money to the Senate Leadership Fund because that's where the quarterback is. Mitch runs that the Senate leadership fund deploys resource is wherever they're needed. There's a counterpart on the Democratic side as well. Chuck Schumer's fund, but Republicans go to the leadership fund, but whether you want to support Senator Susan Collins, who I think is climbed into the lead Senator Tom tell us we don't have any good point. We thought stupid pole yesterday and said Cal Cunningham has increased his lead since his affair was revealed. You know, that's just stupid. That's not true. So you can put that aside. Tom tell us in North Carolina, Lindsey Graham. Is gonna win, but I would like him to win by 10 points just to show Democrats they can't buy seats. His opponent is raised. I think $53 million in the last quarter. Sandlin's Isam mind doing a great job at the Senate Judiciary Committee, Senator Lindsey Graham's and money Joni Ernst Denial is back in the late Senator Cory Gardner. I don't think is, but he's climbing a great campaigner. There's a well of goodwill towards Cory Gardner out there. He's been one of Colorado's most relentless advocate, She helped pass the great outdoors in the Great American Outdoors Act. And Senator Martha McSally, who is within I think a point now. Last survey I saw she was found by 10 3 months ago. But she eviscerated Mark Kelly in the debate, and I think 700,000 Arizona voters saw that and said, Okay, I'm giving money to mark the McKell. I'm going to help her out. I think she's in good shape, and I know the president is climbing in every national poll. I talked to senators yesterday who are running both of whom are confident about the rumor feeling a lot better this week than they did last week. When the president in the hospital, the numbers were tanking. And since he's gotten out everyday, it's gotten better. They do overnight pulling and they don't They don't get it wrong. They can't afford to get it wrong. Overnight polling daily increases for the president and them since he got out of the hospital that is key. Now. Joe Biden, on the other hand, had the worst day ever yesterday. First of all the memory problem cut number one. You may remember. I got in trouble with running again. Senator who was a Mormon governor. Okay? I took him on the senator who was a Mormon. The governor, he can't remember Mitt Romney's name. Really? He can't remember Mitt Romney name cut number two, He gets what he's running for wrong. No, we have to come together. That's why I'm running. I'm running is a proud Democrat for the Senate. You know he's not running is a proud Democrat for the Senate..

"Would you believe the rest of this? Keep going. Ction was. This is great because so often these debates become parallel news conferences where one candidate answers the question to him. The other candidate answers the question to him. So when the president started engaging With Biden. I thought we're gonna have a real debate here. It became clearer and clearer over time that this was something different and that the president was Determined to try to butt in and throw Joe Biden off You gave your statistics I saw another Fox analysis that indicates the president interrupted, either Biden's answers are my questions.

Primary results: Kris Kobach loses Kansas Senate primary
"Primary season and in yesterday's contests, Progressive Democrats scored two high profile victories. While a conservative aligned with President Trump lost to a more mainstream Republican in Kansas. NPR's Susan Davis is here to sort through results and tell us what this might signal about November. Let's start with the Republican contest where former Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach lost the GOP Senate primary to Congressman Roger Marshall today you wrote that this is a win for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. How so? Well. Marshall was McConnell's preferred candidate. The Senate Leadership Fund, which is an outside Superpac align with the leader spent over $2 million to help Marshall win. McConnell, like many Republicans believed that if Kobach had won, he would've tanked the party's chances of holding to the on to that seat in November and very likely could have taken the majority down with it. A word of caution here, though, Marshal is still not a sure bet. There's still interesting things happening in Kansas, and that race looks like it could still be competitive. And I've talked to GOP strategist who say it's gonna You know they're going to keep investing in Kansas to keep it in their column, but ultimately this is a seat that will be harder for Democrats to win and the battle for the Senate carries on.

"There's is a lot of focus on conservation that you don't find in states like Georgia. There are all these weird crossover issues where people who might be might vote for Republican would be would be flippable. I just think some of the conventional wisdom about it. Perhaps is the kind of thing that an effective effective Democratic candidate could challenge but apparently this inhabiting right. Now I look I think you're absolutely right about Montana and another Kansas Democrats might have a better shot in Kansas than they do Georgia to yeah crisco similar argument with the help of the CRISCO Bach Business Right <hes> yeah so the Chris Rock got in <hes> and immediately the Republican establishment trained to their fire on him. The aren't they are R._C.. In the Senate Leadership Fund just knew him out of the gate you know they're trying to they're trying to bury that so the this could be a case where a strong candidate in the right stances right turn out. It's it's a long shot but I think for for Democrats here if they can get these kind of <hes> <hes> star candidates running against the odds which a lot of money that forces Republicans to spend in states they don't WanNa have to and that theoretically opens the playing field in the better pickup right. We have a bunch of Senate. I didn't bring up the North Carolina Senate primary. That's real. I think tell us is in deep trouble yeah. I don't know if Tillis can get out of it. Make you win this nomination right now. Let's let a campaign happen. He's in that. That's a that's a problem. That's not a small problem but I'm betty you wanna Joe Yeah on the Kansas thing. The Kansas Republican Party is not a normal Republican party right. It's been one party control and it's basically divided headed into two parties and several years ago the conservative wing of the Republican Party took over state government and passed some tax cuts that were you know further right than the tax cuts almost in any state and it was a disaster there were all sorts of problems and the conservative Republicans kind of got humiliated and in many ways tossed out the business community become bipartisan. Now there is there is an it's an important and weird an interesting shift that is something that Democrats hypothetically would be able to capitalize on whether they'll capitalize on it is very much but yeah exactly. It's a big deal there was there were some house there was at least one house picked picked up two seats in Kansas. My big question is we think district. Kansas is going less. Kansas and Missouri Opposite Direction are going in opposite directions along rant on Missouri. You're very short version of it. I think it was the most interesting state in the country because it captures so many weird national dynamics at other states don't get it's you have the St Louis Arch. You have Mark Twain you have the Ferguson Rights started in Missouri. You have the deindustrialization playing out. You have a place where Democrats are still competitive but it I the the way that the trump phenomenon has impacted national politics is super visible in Missouri and I think like writing off as a traditional red state. Is You know glosses over some of the dynamics that are totally great. I I WANNA see a daily beast blowout. I want somebody to write a book on it. I was born in Missouri. I'm biased toward. There's what High School in Columbia Missouri in Columbia in Saint Louis. Everybody's it's about your high school. I said we only lived there so I was eight so I'm not I don't have a ton of experience. We're still OH chief stands by anyway. It's the city over Saint Louis. Oh no question yeah so here's the question about the Senate in twenty twenty. How many split ticket voters still exists in the country? It's a presidential election year. We've been talking a lot about a lot of red states that are probably GonNa vote for president. Trump Democrats need to win these places but every cycle there are fewer and fewer voters who are voting differently on the presidential then they're voting on the Senate level. I think it's especially true in a presidential year in eighteen if you're a soft Republican Republican who doesn't like trump but you know you're generally like the supreme court in tax cuts. You might vote for a moderate Democrat to send a message to put a check but in a presidential year. Are you really GonNa vote for a Democrat for the Senate <hes> that's essential to to their wins and if they can't figure out how to do that then the Senate becomes really difficult for Democrats going forward because there are just more red states than there are blue states right right <hes> very quickly Muller Week <hes> before we go it it it does feel like everything changed after the debate started which was something I think we all thought would we would feel remillard. That muller felt more compelling before the presidential campaign really took off it will it what will muller. What do you expect me to do due to the landscape next week? It's a great question <hes> I think I thought it was fascinating. That Moeller didn't really come up in the Democratic primary debates and then the candidates weren't bringing up. I I think now that there's this election going on democratic voters no longer feel the need to have someone kind of acting as a life preserver of the way that the Mueller probe which is in a way with that functioned as for some Democrats for about two years in terms of what his testimony is going. I mean I mean look molars total boy scout and he's not gonNA say anything about the investigation itself is not in the report. I don't think what he might talk about and what I would ask. If I were a member of Congress and I was trying to gather information mation is what happened after investigation was dying in the window of time between him sending the report to bar and the report becoming public. I would want to know how things change would bar took over <hes>. What kind of meetings did molar have with bar was? was there any pressure to expedite processes or were there conversations where <hes> the shape of the project he was doing shifted now. What does that mean for Democratic primary voters? I don't know I think it's baked in. Honestly I think I think people either take the Russia's stuff seriously or they think it's a hoax and I think for the voters in the middle who haven't decided I think it's like item ten on the list of things that they care about who's watching Muller Right. I mean the people watching Muller going to be the ones hoping he's got the goods. The People Watch right. They're going to be the people who have been watching Miller all along <hes> who have been following every twist and turn about this and I think the potential threat of Muller was always going to be more important than the real threat unless he came up with some report that <hes> you know was was this some kind of smoking gun that we never really thought was going to happen anyway. Putin email the trump that says let's do this thing right and collusion cruel see you later. Where should we place the facebook? It does it on because you could project anything you wanted onto candidates could speak to it and then once you see the real thing. It's like seeing the monster in the movie. It's always disappointing. When you actually stranger things I will give them credit? I thought that monster have you guys finished it. No spoilers please okay. Have you finished it. I actually haven't watched watched now. I'm surprised at how much I enjoyed it. Sorry I'm what are you benching that we've been watching the Netflix <hes> chefs table able series. It's really great. I don't watch stressful T._V.. If it stresses me out I do not watch it. I don't know even if it's factual stress cares co super into cooking shows. I would say about the most stressful that we get for television. The Shark tank at the a little bit of anxiety sometimes but yeah I may or may not have gotten caught up in the Netflix also a cooking show with C._B.. Hilly and let's just say they tried to do a version of chopped. It amazing streak stoned that sounds like a television. I would've loved to like here the pitch looking up with that idea. They're only fifteen minute episodes what you've been actually watched the first episode the stranger things. How did you watch the second like that's what they kill me with like incredibly self control? My wife and I are going to go to bed but I can't go to bed on that. Also big little lies still into that Oh started meryl streep is excellent and very good actress. I hear I hear good things about her. I think she's got a bright future ignition now that she's doing television I mean she's really slumming on it. She really must need the work and I'll put one other shits. Creek is amazing. I you know Netflix taunts me with it. Every time I go on there like watch this much watch every other show that people watch with Shits Creek other than that and you get to say Shits Creek. Can I double back to an earlier conversation. We also watched a lot of the ozarks series on Netflix which is crazy and so basically yeah I go to every every time I go to a strip mall money laundering. I'm just saying I feel like I'm a detective.
