The DNC and RNC are going virtual. What can we expect?
"So actually the coronavirus pandemic everything has gone virtual. We covered all digital conferences like Tho- launches, apples, WDC. In DNC are completely different animals Taco bell expecting to see well I. Think it's GonNa be a very, highly produced. Event just like it normally is but it's GonNa be really different because you know when they. When they usually do this, you've got like thousands of people in a huge arena you know you have people talking. And they're they're mostly talking to the to the people, the viewers and the audience. Sitting at home on their couches. Anyway. But you have that vibe you have that you know the people cheering it's it's like being in a live sporting event in a sense you know so like that's going to be lost a bit. Yeah. We've we've had instances with like the the NBA right they put up digital boards with with people that are virtually in I've watched the most games. It's definitely not. It doesn't really replicate the feeling of being at a game where the ambiance there I imagine a lot of the energy that would have been in those conferences have people been there. Is really kind of sucked away, right? Yeah and you know and that's really political conventions are basically like cheerleading events right? You know it's like the party faithful as there you've got these delegates from all around the country they're like really Gung Ho for their party and their candidate and they wanna like. You know just cheer their heads off and it's you know. So you know I think that energy is going to be a bit different but I'm also curious to see like what creative things they come up with right like like you mentioned the NBA thing like like are they going to do something like that? You know I mean? It'll be interesting to see how they approach it. Yeah. Have you got any kind of indication on on what they might do to create that excitement that is would be missing from having all those folks there. Yeah. So the the DNC they they have been, they've definitely said that they are going to try to involve people like regular everyday people. So I'm wondering if it is going to be something NBA like right where they have screens. Right there. But we'll definitely be having some like. Some people getting beamed in from all across the US whether it's you know. Politicians or or just SORTA your regular everyday folks who are like either live on video and a lot of like these pre produced videos people have been they've had this campaign where people are able to. Send in their videos like with prompts like I know Joe and talk about like why they're excited about Joe Biden and that kind of thing. So they're going to have that SORTA interspersed throughout the program. So it'll be interesting to see like how it all Kinda comes together. To DNC specifically, what what is that? GonNa look like will anyone actually be in Milwaukee? So there will probably be like a skeleton kind of crew in Milwaukee like I've heard that that Tom Perez, who's the chairman of the DNC was still planning to go to Milwaukee to gavel in the convention officially. But the big speakers you know like Joe Biden, who's the presumptive nominee he is not going to be there he's going to be somewhere in Delaware. Now, they've said he's not probably going to do it from his basement. So some place else in Delaware. In the Wilmington area where he lives. So that'll be interesting. I wonder how they they might dress up whatever venue he's in. You know like he was speaking with. Kamala Harris. You know the other day they've had actually a couple of speaking engagements and they've got the flags everywhere but like the backdrop didn't really look all that interesting to me. So it'll it'll I wonder how they're going to you know jazz it up so that it looks cool. How's the Brokaw can work? Yeah. So the roll call and by the way like I got to go to the convention in two, Thousand Sixteen, the roll call is pretty cool. Just in general when you're there in the room, there's like this vibe all the people stand up and they say, you know I'm from South Carolina and they were the whatever state and we pledge our ex delegates to. And so it's like an exciting moment. So it's going to be totally different this time 'cause they're all not going to be in the room but I you know they've said they're. GonNa. Kind of pop around all all the states and so you're probably going to have people from those states. Doing their call and I'm sure they're gonNA do something jazzy about like. You know I'm from Delaware. So it's like Delaware the first state in the nation. Allah. Probably say something like that I don't know. So it'll. We'll see. We'll see what about the NC I know there was a lot of back and forth about where was gonna be in whether it was go digital What is that GonNa was so that you know I think that's still to be determined right? Like they're still they haven't put out a whole lot of information about like what it's GonNa look like exactly. So I mean I want I wonder if some of this might change in the next week but. So far they are. Going to have a very reduced crowd in Charlotte. President trump will not be there to accept the nomination. In they're gonNa have like something like you know three hundred or so delegates there. So you know I don't know I don't know if they're going to try to do some things kind of like in in the arena although I think that would look pretty. bleak. If it's people, you know space really far apart. So I think that's still Kinda to be determined with what they're going to be doing it wear for folks who are watching these where can you check out the streams? So the DNC they've announced a whole bunch of places like you're gonna be able to stream, it live on youtube and facebook and twitter and And then the convention is officially you know airing from nine to eleven every night and all the broadcast channels will have it for the last hour. And and then they're gonNA have it on like TV and Roku and so they were going to be a lot of opportunities for people to stream it or. Even, to SORTA catch it on the networks got looking at some of the other challenges I mean we talked a little bit about the lack of energy. But what are the potential pitfalls who going virtual? Yeah. Well I mean we've all been watching. You know some of these cable news shows lately right like in sometimes you get like the guests who are like pixellated or their screen freezes. You know so I think that's going to be a challenge. You know you don't want somebody to be mid-sentence and all of a sudden they're face completely frees up. So that'll be a challenge. Yasser. Don't want it to look like a really boring call. With. With everybody with the bookcase in the background. So I think they'll have to figure out ways to to make it look interesting and you know. And not have any sort of technical glitches.

COVID-19 relief bill negotiations fall apart as lawmakers remain divided
"Congressional leaders, Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi met with the trump administration today for what we think was an eleventh round of face-to-face negotiations on another covid relief package for Americans who are out of work or otherwise up against it in the seventh full blown month of this pandemic Democrats offered to knock about a trillion dollars off of their relief bill, which should otherwise been pegged at three point four, trillion, the White House apparently said no to that offer. Many. The deadlines to replenish or extend the relief programs that Congress has passed in the past. Those have already come and gone deadline to continue paying the extra six hundred bucks and unemployment benefits that tens of millions of Americans have been relying on since they've been out of work that deadline came and went July thirty first. The deadline to extend the ban on people across the country that passed on July twenty fourth now as many as twelve million people or risk of losing their homes if they don't get help. Technically the paycheck protection program the Federal Loan Program to try to keep small businesses afloat. Technically, that program is still alive that program doesn't expire until tomorrow, but it does matter tomorrow. With all these federal leaf relief programs either collapsing on the verge of collapsing the trump administration is saying no to the Democrats compromise offer they've been making vague noises about the president trying to do some of these things by executive order the president talked about that tonight at his golf club in Bedminster but then quickly pivoted to spending the next half an hour remarks basically holding a very small campaign rally. Left unsaid at all was how he intends to muster the authority to try to do any of this single handedly since it's congress, not the president. That holds the power of the purse tick tock though in terms of how much Americans need relief right now, there's no end to this pandemic insight. The reason these things are expiring is because when they initially past people thought this would be over by now. It's nowhere near over Americans are suffering just as much as they were when these things were passed in the first place. How's this going to resolve? Joining us now is the Great James Clyburn South Carolina Congressman Chair of the House Select Committee Oversees Virus Relief Funds Congressman Clyburn. It's really nice to see you here. Tonight it's been too long since you've been here on the show I really appreciate you making time to be here. Thank you very much. Can you just give us your overview perspective on what you think is going to happen whether you think that these programs that so many Americans have been counting on will get extended what kind of lapse that will be looking at between those programs initially expiring and them getting re upped when ultimately some deal hopefully, it's worked out. I think we. WORKED OUT WE'LL be the tremendous amid of the week. Weekend. We will have. Some politicians tomorrow I think we're getting close to something happening. That will be beneficial to everybody. When the president talks about doing some of these things by executive order, I feel like I'm going back to my school house rock it's just I'm just a bill kind of basics about how the different branches of government work I mean the one thing the president doesn't have is the power of the purse when he says that he can do some of these things just by signing. An executive order when we're talking about, you know sending money to people weren't talking about an unemployment benefits boost when we're talking about changes around taxes that he's talking about, it doesn't seem to me that he has the power to do any of that as as president. But yet, the White House seems to think that that's a that's another way to get at the relief that's needed. The purchasing is saying that there is no congress, the acid deal with no people the he has to listen to He says these things up think as always throwing something up on the wall to see if it was. I think he knows better than this. The general owners that he issues have gone to court time and time again and they've been thrown back into his face as appointed time. I think he's get the message from the Courts as well. But keep working and we'll come to some agreement I. Wish that Mr McConnell or in the room so that we can get the legislative bodies together but he seems to have. Turned over to the White House, but we'll get something. You you sound confidence and that. Is booming to me because I feel like you're pretty clear eyed observer about what is capable what what Capitol Hill is capable of doing just ask what you would say to Americans right now who are really scared about not just the health aspects of this but the economic aspects of this I mean so many people that I know just in my personal life with their small business owners or whether they are employees of public or private entities. people are worried about whether or not the the economic. Blow that's been dealt to individual families into our country. Right now is something that we're going to recover from in the long run. How do you? How do you see that and? How do you think the government has done in terms of trying to fix some of these these wounds? People are worried and. Something, I'm worried. He got a really a pandemic, but then a pandemic here. When you really look at it they got a big healthcare crisis. They got an economic crisis, and as we focused on trying to do something about the economic crisis, the fact of the matter which are not yet it saw without solving this healthcare crisis. So it's a double whammy here. We have to try to operate knowing full well that you cannot operate within the silo here

Home years later he said it was a big F ing mistake Dante. Here's the thirty th it's Ryan didn't have to speak out saying I'm sorry because what it is is this is blind ignorance I grew up in the south everywhere you go sadly there are these plantation homes and even open as tourist destinations. So you go and you visit them you look at them and It's just a lot of people don't know the history and we're kind of in the middle of that going on in the world. We don't talk politics here, but there are a lot of months of, do we take down statues? How do we deal with the history and the sad part is a lot of people don't know the history to in order to deal with it. Right and then I think when you do find out the history when you educate yourself or it's pointed out to you, you do the right thing. This is a lesson in. One One and Ryan and Blake passed with flying colors when you do something that wasn't right if you don't think it was right if it no longer feels right you speak up, you say, sorry, you know we don't talk about politics on the show I. think that's part of the success of the show but I did get married Bruce and I got married I'm shamed to say at Trump hotel we got married at trump in.

This was the history this is what happened there. Let's move forward with it.
Democrats and Republicans remain divided on enhanced unemployment benefits
"In Washington, Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin telling Senate Republicans that negotiations are no closer to a Corona virus relief deal than they were last week. He's putting the blame on congressional Democrats Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer. They're leading the talks last Friday. Of course, that's $600 a week federal enhancement to state unemployment benefits it expired. Other Republicans emerging from today's briefing with the Treasury secretary and White House chief of staff, Mark Meadows, saying it appears the bipartisan negotiations are now at a stalemate. CBS NEWS Congressional correspondent Nancy Court is with this question to Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell. In a variety of proposals. But at this point what do you believe the consensus Senate Republican view is on how large the federal unemployment insurance benefits should be per week and how long it should last. Well, I think I've made it very clear for some time. Now. If you're looking for total consensus among Republican senators, you're not going to find it, so we do have divisions about what to do. What we're hoping for. Here is a bipartisan proposal negotiated by the president of the stage and his team who can sign a bill into law and Democratic majority in the House that can appeal to a significant percentage of Republicans in the House and Senate. That's where we are on the unemployment issue. We all know it needs to be solved. We don't want the exploration to continue what we've suggested that Short term fixes. Others have indicated they've objected to that a better outcome would be to get to a total solution sooner rather than later. And that's what I am encouraging everyone to do on both sides. Part of the challenge with this negotiation that Negotiators know what the Democratic negotiating position is, but it's unclear what the Republican position is. It's no, that's not a big challenge at all. I'm not anticipating 100 nothing vote in the Senate. This time. I said that in the very beginning, I said it when we laid down our trillion dollar heels. I don't think we're gonna have A total consensus in this round. The atmosphere is much more partisan than it was back in March and April that much closer to the election. So I don't think the definition of success here is whether we have a unanimous vote. I think the definition successes is the product. Something that will actually make a difference. And yet part of the problem is we hear from other Senate Republicans, including Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and Rand Paul of Kentucky, saying that they do not support the price tag for the Koven 19 2nd round of relief package is more from today's briefing with reporters, NBC's Casey Hunt and Senator Mitch McConnell. Nancy Pelosi, that House speaker seems to have suggested that $600 per week for federal benefits is for red Line. Do you think a bill with that amount of money for unemployment could pass the Senate if the president were to say he wants that, too? I think I'm pretty safe to say that there are plenty of Republicans in the Senate who may not vote for a package if that's where it ends up, But we know this is going to be a negotiated settlement. I just said it's not going Produce a Kumbaya moment like we had in March or April where everybody voted. Aye, but the American people in the end I need help. And wherever this thing settles between President United States and his team have to sign it into law and the Democrat not insignificant minority in the Senate and majority in the house is something I'm prepared to support even if I have some problems.

"To like really up. End The way The Power Systems. That keep these people's lives and you know from being what they want and I would say that Warren makes the same kind of argument and the rest of the field is really version of. I can be trump and person you trump and I think I might bring it back to and also I think the trump and and you know in the Biden message kind of like I'm going to restore things to normal yeah Go back to the way things were and that's hard for two reasons one. This may be the election where voters actually do want that because they are so traumatized by trump. And there's a nephew just like I just want him to go away. I want him to Just memory I things to go back to normal. That's never what voters are dude. This may be the time they do that. But the other problem Pretoria Democratic primary is hey going back to the way. Things were isn't so great for a lot of people who consider themselves it's sort of like the flip of the way a lot of Democrats responded to trump's message which was you know make America great again while again like when they're being great for me and so Biden trying to get people say like let's go back to when it was better. Things were calmer It does seem like there's a chance that a lot of voters will say better was not better for me like an agreement with the what is. I think you're right that the the there are a lot of other differences but the core similarity of trump warnin sanders. Saying like was not working. We got to change it up. Yeah I mean there's there's I think you. I think Biden could do it but there's definitely attention you have to acknowledge that it's not just everything was great in two thousand sixteen that there's any has been trying to do that but. I think that you know what I've learned in politics is that you're not winning when you're just trying to beat somebody else. You're winning when you have your own argument. You have your own agenda and it can stand independent of whoever. Your opponent is then. That's when you can really galvanize people to your side and then I do credit sanders and his campaign for building that kind of campaign that stands You know obviously trump is shaping the atmosphere but they are not shaping their race to beat him. You know that's not their origin story. And it's everyone else's organ story in the next couple of four. I have a lot of views about why. Why is it that Elizabeth? Word isn't doing as well as Bernie Sanders. Which are what which are gender Just you know she is. I think she's the best communicator in the field. Bar None I think she's a master at it. I think she her stump speech is I could recite it from word and yet she such a good Present her that she makes it fresh every time. It super assessable. She has a plan for everything but I think that Her life story is just as compelling as Sanders in terms of being somebody. Who's always been on the side of fighting for change and trying to You know make things more fair for the people that that don't do as well in the country And you know still. He's considered to be the one who's more Sincere who's more authentic right? I heard that from a voter and a lot of caucus. Why why is that? Why is Elizabeth Warren Story? You Know Schools Amino Mom. A schoolteacher worked really hard to become a bankruptcy lawyer and like his worked for decades to fight banks to make rules more fair and been pretty successful at doing it and getting some results you know. Why why she? A woman in her thirties told me in east Las Vegas after she finished caucusing for Sanders that she. She said that she didn't think Warren was authentic. And I said why and she said I just don't think she's She's been co opted by the establishment. And I said what makes you think that? And she said it's that that she had been covered so much by the mainstream press over the course of two thousand nineteen that that made her suspect that the establishment was for warn. That is going through some somersaults to convince yourself. You have a good reason for why you know like a woman in her early thirties. I'm a mother and as well. What about the coverage that? Sanders has changed. Well now. It's it's very different. Yeah Yeah it is and it doesn't mean people doesn't mean this woman you're talking about. Our voters are skeptical of Warner's or of warriner sexist. It's certainly not overt sexism but it just like what I've come to understand. Just how deep these models we hold in her head of what leaders look and sound like and we just default to the men we just do. This field started with a lot of strong female candidates that people expected would be serious contenders and it does seem like an. We don't know exactly how the next couple of weeks ago but it does seem like when we get to the final round. We might not have any women at all right. What does that do for you? I mean this is something that you're I have crossed over and I'm never going back so I I now. I see the world very differently than I did before I used to think I used to Bristle like I. Have you know colleagues in Bama White House Who would say it's still a man's world and they would and I would like I'd like to hear that because I said that that diminishes what I've accomplished this is not a man's world. I'm doing great and this man in this world and now I realized I wasn't doing great man's world I was doing great making the man's world run. Well I was doing great perpetuating the power cycles that kept women and people of color out of power. That's what I was doing and as someone who rose to be the White House communications director. Yeah I was ten years older than the guy at the head of before me Dan. Pfeiffer who you know who is a good friend of mine and I was really grateful. He brought me into the White House to be his deputy. I was ten years older than him. And then I got this job after. He was promoted to be the president senior advisor. And I was communications director so as you need him again ten years and I sort of live. My life is to be like. Oh don't be understand yes. There are different standards for women. So don't hold yourself. Don't be disappointed that you're not that you didn't get behind the community that you're forty five when you came to communications director and Dan was thirty five without. Don't don't be disappointed understand. Just be proud of the effort that you put in to get there and now. I'm like no stop expecting to do worse than the man right so when I see women and it's a Gut Punch every time I see a woman candidate not do well because I know I see the like she's shrill or she can't win or the you know these the things that were remaining from a patriarchal system that keep them out and I think that you just have to keep talking about and you have to. You know like Warren credit her she talks about electability talks about how women win and how she's won every race and but you also talked about which is interesting to me that one of the things you think. She does successfully is neutralize the sexist arguments in part at by in her speech he tells the story the way every event ends with. She's telling about how the CFP her her Consumer Protection Agency was created and that it was like the banks needed to have watchdog the toasters needed to have a watchdog from has she had. They were when she was growing up and they used to catch fire all the time and she says how do I know. They caught fire well and that her father bought her a fire extinguisher. And the way you talk about this is that she is saying to women Look this is a relatable story but also like I needed men to help me protect me which is itself saying like yeah. This is kind of sexy. I think she's trying to. I think that this is why her hurts stump speeches. I find it so genius. Trying to meet voters where they are in the toaster story. What she says is. My daddy was so upset because her toaster-oven kept catching on fire. My Daddy was so upset that he bought.

"Nevada. I remember watching. Townhall that Bernie. Sanders did in Nevada and seeing that his lines were not landing with the audience. The same way now for years later they did. They landed really big in Nevada. But you know and so I thought maybe sanders would win here too. It doesn't feel like he's going to if he does it'll be a very big deal But here it does feel like that. The African American vote is not still skeptical. And you know so we want here by forty seven points and it. Was you know sometimes when you went by that big? You're like well. How does that mean anything? Because we didn't have to fight for nearly that you're then you're then you're wondering if that was just an aberration but saw on. Super Tuesday that it was not that it did mean that African American voters had a lot of doubts about him. So that was a great. You know we won here. We really excited. And we went to Memphis Tennessee. As it is now Super Tuesday state touchdown Memphis and we were in a really great mood and we should of the peabody hotel and normally hillary will go in through the back entrance right Peabody hotels not set up that way and we walked into the lobby and there were about four hundred young white men in that hotel lobby There were there for this thing called the cotton gin which is like a farm expo beating that meets their every year and they were all and they're like they're you know they're both a sale to refresh member there. And they're like the trucker heads the sleeveless Fez and plaid shirts and they search any locker up and it was just this got huge win and then you walk into bat and it was like with the Democratic primary sorta shielded from seeing a lot of Republican voters and it was really a nerve and then they saw Houma and they're screaming. Things at home are Maya Harris is commonly hers. His sister struggling with US or screaming. You know like racist stuff at our. It was really They had put special security in both of our floors beyond Hillary security because there was just not like threats but just like a lot of you know usually the peabody hotel is just for the ducks and the fountain ducks. I never saw the ducks. And then actually it was funny. We got into the elevator in the bellman was helping us. He looks at me and he's like every year. The people come here every year so it was you know on the one hand we had this elation from a big win that also sort of suggested to us. Sanders was going to run into a wall.

Spotify wherever you like to listen brought to you by Pushkin Industry. President Obama launched his reelection bid today officially announce his running president kicked off his twenty twelve reelection run the Atlantic reports that Bernie Sanders told fellow. Senators he take on. Obama and Obama's team was quote absolutely panicked Obama's so I wrote an article that came out last week that was about Bernie Sanders and his nose and around a primary challenge. Brock Obama which put me in a spot that I don't really love to be in. Which is that it got turned into a campaign commercial by. Joe Biden was should be noted a commercial that he did not have the money to put on the air but that went around on the Internet. What was interesting to me about? This was that it reflects how the views of Obama have changed over the years. Twenty four team when I was covering him then in the midterms nobody even wanted him around to any democratic race. Anywhere a air rights. I want I want to go through this transition with you because you lived at in different circumstances you were in the White House in two thousand fourteen then and then in twenty sixteen he was more popular by then but still not the same. You were on the Clinton campaign then and now by twenty twenty. He has achieved this status that Last year I wrote something that he is more popular than Jesus in the Democratic Party and I used his popularity ratings and the level in pupils of committed Christian Democrats and he is literally more popular than Jesus in the Democratic Party. And so what you see. Is every candidate saying how wonderful he is many of them using him in ads. Mike Bloomberg Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders. Now has a shot of him and add. It's anybody who can get anything. And of course Joe Biden Spending a Lotta time. Is it from your experience over these years. Weird to see this happen to Barack Obama. It's not because I know that it's it's the sort of the life cycle of what happens to an American president. They're not popular in mid terms. That's just that is universal. The primary thing about primary Barack Obama Consumer Small Issue. It is not a smallish. South Carolina is a video for black voters that they you know if they weren't sure of what to make a sanders. They recognize a politician deciding that why politician probably isn't quite up to the job wasn't quite doing it as well as he should. And I think that actually you know you see the Biden Campaign. I mean yeah. They didn't have on Money. Put by that ad but they talk about it all the time and by and talks about it. Not He's not the most disciplined messenger ever but he definitely says that every place goes in South Carolina. It was not Written for his purposes or any other purposes other than. It's what happened and it struck me because because remember it not. I don't. I don't remember specifics. I do remember in twelve being nervous. Like plus that Jamesy Anna was the campaign manager at the time. Being nervous about like just it means you know you don't survive those those. It's this early warning sign of a tough reelect and that summer of two thousand eleven when this was happening in sanders popping. Up in New Hampshire. It was making a lot of people on the Obama campaign. Really really uncomfortable. Alabama Steph. Don't like to be uncomfortable like everything to be smooth. It's been a weird race in a lot of ways because you see the Democratic Party changing in the Obama part of it is reflective of that to me. You had a line in the Washington Post a couple of weeks ago. That that the obsession with concocting a Frankenstein confounded us all a good quote. So why don't you explain your member? So that particularly I felt this really intensely in Iowa New Hampshire and Iowa. Voters just felt paralyzed. When I talked this is why turn out was low. And what was because he was so scared of making the wrong choice about the person who is best able to beat trump that they didn't know they didn't know what to do. You talk to people on Sunday. Who are going to caucus tomorrow night. But I don't know how I'm going to caucus for an endless people just didn't show up and you know I think to sanders. Credit Bernie beats trump is like what their hashtag and they talk about that but that is not the motivating factor for sanders supporters burners. They are for Bernie and Bernie has Bernie describes America as their expanded that reflects their experience and he has dramatic big proposals. That are going.

"Storming after victory in South Carolina decimated. That's what happened. Just don't see a path for Bernie Sanders. I really don't welcome to the ticket. For years ago the South Carolina primary was a turning point for the Democratic nomination. Bernie Sanders put up unexpectedly. Strong challenge to Hillary Clinton the first few stance but his blowout loss with the beginning of he'd hold on through the end of the primaries but South Carolina showed he couldn't break through to a big section of the party. South Carolina was also a turning point in two thousand eight. Barack Obama was the unexpected challenger that year and after his win Iowa voters saw the chance to elect the nation's first black president and after polls had initially showed Clinton doing well stable Bama a huge victory any went on to become the nominee. I Wonder Hampshire get the attention but South Carolina as being crucial for the last year.

"south carolina" Discussed on Campaign HQ with David Plouffe
"So let's talk about your race a little bit so i WanNa talk about some of the substance. And and what the hell has happened to Lindsey Graham but undefined? But I'm sure you talk to people both who are thinking about volunteering their time for you in South Carolina or donating their money. Who say love. You really think rams gotta go but how can we win? So what's your elevator pitch on How you get fifty percent of the vote In South Carolina. Well first of all David. One thing is. You have to dispel the method South Carolina's Ruby Red. Most people like to make it out to be right and you know President Obama in two thousand. You guys didn't we weren't one of the battleground seats in two thousand eight. But even given that he only lost the state by one hundred and fifty thousand votes right and that's without doing much advertising or anything in this thing we got almost forty five percent there. Yeah yeah that's exactly right. So you know. President Bongo Lost South Carolina by eight points in two thousand eight. He Lost Georgia seven and in two thousand twelve. He lost us by nine. And I think he lost Georgia by eight so in many ways Georgia and South Carolina very similar. The the only difference is we don't have a huge Atlanta right. Would which is such a huge pocket vote And so I often tell folks the problem that we've had in South Carolina. They say well why can't Democrats win is because we really haven't had the party infrastructure for well over a decade to allow us to get our message out to really build the apparatus that we need to reach out to voters and as a result African American voters. Just don't turn out to vote in the state. We have more African American voters in South Carolina than they do. In North Carolina Twenty eight percent of our population of voting Registered voters are African American and as opposed to twenty three percent in North Carolina. And there's pockets to to improve that we got four hundred thousand unregistered black voters in the state right. Now say that again. Four hundred thousand unregistered black voters in South Carolina and as I said in two thousand eight Rock Obama lost by one hundred fifty thousand votes. So the votes are there We just gotTa we gotta get them activated now part of it is. There's never been a candidate that has run statewide like me. There's never been an African American. You know sort of the top of the ticket really because the presidential will probably not play in South Carolina much so at the top of the ticket that has had the life type of experiences that I've had but at the same time you know I can go into a rule white or black county and talk to farmers about The combines had just bought right or what crops at their Their plant in this year at the same time. I can go to the Ports Authority or I can go to Michelin and BMW and talk about the importance of investment and other legislation. How that impacts them. So I'm this campaign is a very very unique one Where I'm going to have the resources to probably put on the best field operation in the history of the state And many ways. We're taking a playbook that Stacey Abrams had in Georgia which is expanding electorate register more voters. And then you go to every part of the state you don't you don't take any part of state for granted and you ask for the vote. Does that mean you're going to get all the votes in red counties no but if you cut the margins you can win this. And that's what puts me and ease and then to the fact Lindsey Graham's different guy. This is not the same Lindsey Graham as Just six years ago. Six years ago Lindsey Graham won with fifty four percent of the vote against a good friend of mine who who raised a little less than a half million dollars. We race seven million dollars last year and that's not even the calendar year This is going to be the probably the most expensive race in the history of the state and Lindsey has a fight on his hands right so By the way I hope our nominee takes that approach to which is in the battleground states. You know they're talking everybody everywhere. 'cause you know the truth is losing some counties? Sixty forty rather than seventy thirty can make the difference. So let's talk about so you clearly are going to focus on registration. You're gonNA focus on turnout. You're going to focus on building a great grassroots organization to accomplish both of those things but it's fair to say now. I HOPE OUR NOMINEE WIN SOUTH CAROLINA. Super Unlikely Right so for you to win. There's going to have to be some voters who vote trump harrison talking about. Who Do you think those voters are and why they may abandon Graham? Or you know those voters just. Don't they vote trump and they say a pox on both Jamie End Lindsey Graham? Right right great point. Yeah this is the thing. We are going We're going all across the state I was just in Lancaster. County South Carolina. This is a county that went for Donald Trump. Sixty one thirty five. I'm going to send you this. Pitcher man I expected you know we were going to talk to a senior community. I expected thirty forty. We had thirty or forty. Rsvp's three piece. I walk in this hall man and their two hundred and fifty people and I walk in and I can tell you. These are not traditional Democrat voters They're senior white voters in South Carolina. And I walk in. And as soon as they see me they stand up and they start chanting sin Lindsey homes in Lindsay home. I almost had a mini heart attack. Right there there in some of the folks come up to me and they say you know. I just don't know what has happened to Lindsey Graham. I voted for him before and I just don't know what's happened to them and some of them have frustration that he didn't stand up for John McCain Against attacks by the president many of them's talk about you know I don't know if you that we did a focus group with white women in Charleston South Carolina and Charleston so significant to the vote and it. These women were college educated but they were Moderate Republicans or independent and one woman said to me Said to the the moderator. She said You know I don't know what's happened to Lindsey Graham. I don't know why he didn't stand up for his friend John McCain and if he didn't stand up for his John McCain then what would he do for me right I mean I? It was a campaign ad right there. Itsel wrote itsel. But that's that's something that I hear all the time across the state where getting independence in Republicans coming to our rally because frustrated People were tired of the division they are tied of the hatred and they WANNA be unit united they they WANNA unify And the way that I talk about issues in South Carolina is not in the traditional DC frame as I tell folks all the time this is not about Democrats versus Republicans it's not about progressive versus conservative ultimately. It's about what's right versus wrong and it's wrong to be in a state where we've had four rule hospitals to close over. The past. Few years is wrong to be in a state where Two years ago. Fourteen of our forty six counties had no Obgyn's Republicans have refused expand Medicaid. They're almost three hundred thousand people in South Carolina who don't have health care right now. They should if he lived in any other state. They probably would have healthcare but here in South Carolina. They don't a third of our state doesn't have access to broadband right. How in the world do we expect our kids to compete with the rest of the world when they can't even connect with the rest of the world and all of these things all of these issues and problems have been here under the watch in two of Lindsey Graham? Who's been there for twenty plus years and all he cares about is flying around air force. One yeah well pretty powerful message. I'm sure your brain. Which is he's much more interested in you know getting Donald Trump's back than the backs of South Carolinians that that stat on broadband is just eye opening. So it sounds like you know. There's there's probably some independence and Republicans you're running across in South Carolina to your point retired of the division so they might even be considering not voting for trump. But for those that you know it seems like though you know anything about trump you know. He's consistent. He is who he is right. That's exactly right and so how much of a price is Lindsay Graham paying for you mentioned. He's not the same guy but you know sometimes in politics it's Being wrongs never great but being weak as worse right yes. That's exactly right. It's about character right. So he he's abandoning. You know the thing. Most people know about Lindsey Graham. His lifelong you know genuine friendship with John. Mccain. So we're almost seems like he's abandoned that post humorously And kind of Donald Trump is calling his shot. So how much is he paying a price for that and are people aware of it? I mean is that getting enough attention in coverage in South Carolina's at more of like a national media thing they are aware of it and and and some of the polling that we have seen here that I'm beating him with independence. And that's huge. Because the old Lindsey Graham was was a super popular with the independence of the state because again he was seen as a middle of the road even though he was conservative he was seen as a middle of the road. Sort of The Maverick someone who would do what was in the best interest of the nation or the state when when the rubber meets the road and because of this turn. He's not so you know he used to have this coalition of Democrats who thought well lenses. Probably best we'RE GONNA get. He's a you know somebody that I respect. I don't agree with but I respect. And so he would. Folks would vote for him. He would get independence overwhelming and then he would get your mainstream Republicans that was Lindsey onepointoh Lindsey Graham two point. Oh has lost. Those Democrats is losing independence now To me and now all his gain on the right but I believe I really do believe that that that support is somewhat salt because some of those people still don't quite trust Lindsey Graham when you look at the polling Donald Trump out polls Lindsey. And there's a gap between trump and Lindsey Graham and the same poll meaning that those people will vote for Donald Trump. But they don't quite trust Lindsey Graham and that's that's his Achilles heel and that's the thing that we're going we're going to focus on like a laser Because character matters it matters and it is in a place like South Carolina that is so values base. It is really important. People want to know in the end of the day that they can trust you even if they don't agree with you they want to know that they can trust you and this guy has flip flopped on everything You know he'll say one day the one thing today in in turn around and do something different tomorrow. And that's not that's not something that people respect or value here in the state. Well speaking of your narrow self in political interest Hopefully this doesn't look like trump's GONNA lose. Obviously because Graham may decide to scramble back to his old maverick ways you know in the fall but it's no so I'm curious Listen with the Corona Virus Jamie. We obviously all hope for the best both in terms of its effect in terms of people's health here in the US and the economy. But if we're in a situation where the economy is wounded by this and I'm not just talking about the stock market whereas you know there's a lot of voters most voters you know Not In the market but you know it could affect growth in and business growth layoffs. How does that change your campaign at all in terms of the messaging and kind of where you think voters are? Yeah you know. I'm really really concerned by by this virus my wife is a food and drug law professor and she tracks all of these things you know medicine medicine development and and you know all these things come up but I'm very very concerned about the health and well being. We have such a high senior population in the in the state I know that this virus so far they say has a much more deadly impact on those folks over the age of seventy We are also a state that relies on trade because we have a huge porte which you know about a third of the jobs in the state or directly or indirectly tied to the port of Charleston and so Not BEING ABLE TO GET SHIPMENTS. In from other countries that are being ravaged by this virus or are not being able to ship supplies over to those other nations. It could have a huge economic impact on South Carolina You know it is something that we all need to be very aware of and it's just..

I've said this before on the show but it's just I'm sorry if you have you have the front runner of the Democratic You know of the Democratic primaries saying this shit is just has to be has to be repeated because it's unbelievable and it really shows something about Bernie Sanders like Bernie. Sanders really did praise all of these brutal socialist leaders and he switched it. You know like he stopped doing that at a certain point and started just with the like now. No now I'm not talking about Venezuela. I'm not talking about Cuba. Not Talking about the Soviet Union not talking about Nicaragua. I'm talking about Denmark. You know and then like you went into which is talking about Sweden and Denmark. That's what we're talking about. Social Democracies even though he calls himself a socialist like there is and I know a lot of people just kind of all sounds the same but there is a real difference between a Social Democrat and democratic socialist. That's why like when when you talk to Real Democratic Socialists. Like we had been burgess on the show. They're not just talking about like Medicare for all or something like that. They're talking about either government. Seizing entire industry is or what they'll say is worker owned industries which in in other words making it illegal to have a fucking business making it illegal for you to run a business or own a business or start a business. That's this is like more real deal socialist stuff. The Social Democrats are talking about Sweden and Denmark. Like they're just like hey. We should have high taxes and a big safety net and then capitalism. You want own your own company. Go ahead but you're going to pay like seventy percent in taxes or whatever now that has shown problems and it's very flawed. It's why Denmark Sweden have rolled back a lot of those programs because it crushes the economy. But that's a very different thing than being democratic socialist but what Bernie. Sanders does is goes. Oh No I no I. I call myself a democratic socialist and I used to praise all of these authoritarian socialists. But I'm really talking about the social democracy is but I'm still gonNA call myself a democratic socialist. This is kind of weird thing where you're like. So what exactly is it that you believe like you're not really being clear on this for someone who always let me be clear being that clear and so then when this comes up it's interesting that and the thing that's interesting is that there was never a point where Bernie Sanders went like? Hey I was wrong to praise all of those authoritarian socialists. I mean he'll say I'm not for the authoritarian part he's like. I don't like that they did that. Which more or less to me translates to like. I think that the government should concentrate all of the power in a society. But I don't want them to be authoritarian about it. It's like you know I want. I want to create absolute power but don't want it to corrupt them like okay. That's a nice thought but you know and then every time you give someone absolute power. They're like oh the problem. There wasn't the power was the corruption. It's like yeah there's one leads to the other right. It's like saying like okay. I'm going to give this group of people the power to murder whoever they want to with impunity like you could just murder. Whoever you want to and you won't get in trouble for it at all. And then they go on a murdering spree. And you're like well. The problem is that they went on the murdering spray. And it's like well okay. I mean yes in some sense but the problem is also that you gave them the power to murder with impunity. It's probably not a good idea to do that. And that's why you see so many of these left-wing pieces were there like you know the problem. Venezuela isn't the socialism. It's the corruption. I think. Okay right is the problem. Isn't the socialism it's the misallocation of resources like right but one leads to the other every single time every single time so anyway the Bernie Sanders never really walked that back he just kind of moved on and then actually gets annoyed if anyone brings it up. It's like what a stupid question. I'm obviously not talking about authoritarianism. You know even though I did. Praise all these authoritarians but so this. This is the Cuba thing. And he's sticking to his guns on this he's sticking to his guns on well. Look you know. There's a lot of things that I don't like about Cuba. But they really great on education. They did really great on their literacy rate. And of course this is. This is the propaganda that Cubans have have put out there for decades and decades and decades. The idea that they they came in and literacy was very low and literacy was then increased Now let me say this. There probably is some truth to it now. The literacy rate being increased When I say probably because we don't really know for sure the thing about these closed societies is the information that's given to the world is not very easy to verify because they kind of let you into where they want to and close off other areas. And don't show you that so you don't know exactly but they brag that they have like basically one hundred percent literacy rate. I doubt that that's true. But that's what they say however does seem like there was some evidence that the literacy rate increased in Cuba but to praise their education. This is like this weird thing. And it's part of this twisted socialist ideology where you just really believe in a state And and in a state providing things for people and it I guess it just all depends on what your definition of education is like for me right and I think for Sane people everywhere if you are not allowed to think certain thoughts safe certain things read certain books. Then you're not there's nothing to say about your education that's not education that's indoctrination and that's exactly what it is in Cuba. They've you fucking like okay. So yes they did. Have this big literacy program right before. Fidel Castro had the revolution and right after he took over this big literacy program but it was explored expressly explicitly for political purposes. It was to indoctrinate people into the state religion. It was to make people fucking like the literacy program was all about you learning how to read. What your duties to the state were. So that's that's worthy of praising their education like I'm sorry if you can't criticize the government and you can't criticize or you can't read anything that criticizes the government Then that's indoctrination not education and someone praising that is creepy as shit all right. There's like an old Cuban saying that was something or the of the Cubans who fled. I guess but they said something like literacy went up but we weren't allowed to read something like that you know. Basically they taught people how to read. But you could only read the government propaganda so to say that in a country where it's an outright authoritarian country. There's no elections. There's no a freedom to descend nothing like that. The state runs every single school. The state runs every single newspaper. Every radio show all of these things and to praise them for the way. They've educated their people at something really sick about that. Like really fucking sick. You know it's like I don't know like if you kidnap someone and kept them in you know your basement and then taught them how to read to be kept in this basement every day and they'd be like well listen. He shouldn't have kidnapped them but he did. Teach them how to read. But like just to fuck and keep them prisoner and of course he's he's kept them in grinding poverty for the Since he was he's dead now but his brothers I guess doing it But anyway so just really really creepy stuff that Bernie. Sanders is out there saying that You know I don't know how effective this attack is. My guess is not that much but it's it's still pretty wild and his defense that well Obama said Nice stuff about them. It's like yeah. It was despicable when Obama. Said it too? So that's you know not not doing much for me all right. Let's let's play the nightclub area. Where COMES DOWN? To Donald Trump with his nostalgia for the Social Order of the nineteen fifties and Bernie Sanders with an astrologer for the revolutionary politics of the nineteen sixties. My Secretary of Education will be someone who has taught in public school. My Secretary of Education will the someone who believes in public education and my secretary of Education will believe that public dollars should stay in public schools. I come at this with a great deal of humility because we've had a lot of here so I mean I don't even know what to say about these two just completely empty platitudes. It's almost at least Bernie. Sanders thing is almost refreshing in contrast to that because even though it's bat shit and saint at least he's actually saying something just nothingness of Elizabeth Warren. But you know with a shot at charter schools at the end. I I don't know what to say about these just bullshit. Empty rehearsed lines By Pete just nothing there And Yeah but Elizabeth Warren with shot at charter schools. After that in the context of that was that they were asking about Mike Bloomberg increasing charter schools which greatly helped In in New York so that was a little bit weird but not not much comment on that I. Let's keep going all I come at this with a great deal of humility because we've had a lot of issues especially when it comes to racial justice and policing in my own community. Anna come to this with some humility. I'm conscious of the fact that they're seven white people on this stage talking about racial justice. I know that if I were black. My success would have been a lot harder to achieve. I know a lot of black people that if they were white it would have been a lot easier for them. That's just a fact and we've got to do something about it then graph. Just demagogue about it. Let's just go on the record. They Talk About Forty Democrats twenty one of those people that I spent one hundred million dollars to help elect the all of the new Democrats that came in and put Nancy Pelosi in charge and gave the Congress the.

"Data and designed for people learn more at design. Dot ADP DOT COM. All eyes are on South Carolina ahead of next week's Democratic presidential primary there the first in the south former vice president. Joe Biden picked up a big endorsement today from representative James Clyburn. The top ranking black lawmaker in Congress. Do we know Joe. Most importantly Jew knows us but Biden could be facing an uphill battle in the state as he tries to court. Moderate voters joining me now from the campaign trail in Georgetown. South Carolina Is Wall Street Journal. Reporter. Ken Thomas Ken. How significant is representative? James Clyburn endorsement of Biden. Clyburn is probably the most influential Democrat in South Carolina. He's been in Congress since the early nineties and is the highest ranking black lawmaker in Congress right now and his words carry a lot of wheat. Were only a few days before the South Carolina primary and a little more than fifty percent of the electorate is black here in the state so getting that support from Clyburn has a big coup for Biden. He's been trying to win here and set the tone for Super Tuesday states coming up and as we head into South Carolina's primary. How is Biden? Faring well polls show Biden ahead here in South Carolina but it's a narrow lead. He's dominated the race throughout here in South Carolina but as he has struggled in Iowa and New Hampshire the polls gotten much tighter against Bernie Sanders. He's also dealing with Tom. Star who has spent more than twenty million dollars on advertising in South Carolina so he could also be a factor in so binding is really trying to use the state as a springboard for his campaign away to calm nervous. Democrats out there who have long thought that he could be the best matchup against president trump. Can you wrote about Biden's courting of centrist voters? What can you tell us about that? As compared to his Democratic rivals who's presenting the biggest challenge for him there so Biden is trying to consolidate the more moderate vote in the Democratic primaries. He's trying to make the case that Bernie Sanders would be to outside the mainstream if he turned into the nominee and that down ballot candidates running for office in the Senate and the House would struggle as a result if if Bernie Sanders was at the top of the ticket. The trouble for Biden. Though is that it's a very crowded lane. You have Buddha. Judge who is a has had success in in Iowa and New Hampshire so far you have amy Klobuchar who is run a pretty strong campaign and other candidates as well or just trying to fill that lane right now in so biden is running the risk of Having a a splintered vote among moderates and that would allow Sanders to pick up a lot of delegates by the basis of support from Liberals Biden was asked during last night's debate if he would drop out of the race if he failed to win South Carolina and his answer was that he will win South Carolina Ken. What if he doesn't? How important is it for Biden to win the state if he wants to continue in this race his candidacy really does hinge on winning South Carolina? It probably is not a fatal blow for him if he were to come in second place but this is all about momentum in the ability to keep improving as as the calendar goes along and the the the risk for Biden if he does not win in South Carolina is that he won't have much ability to to win votes in these Super Tuesday contests. That are coming. Up On march third. Just a few days after the South Carolina. Primary wraps up. He's hoping to use a win. In South Carolina to connect with African Americans who who make up a large portion of the electorate in number of Super Tuesday states including places like Georgia Alabama Tennessee and in other states around the country. That's Wall Street. Journal reporter Ken Thomas and joining us from the campaign trail in Georgetown South Carolina. Ken Thank you so much. Thanks and.

All EYES ARE TURNING TO SOUTH CAROLINA. The next battleground state in the race for the Democratic presidential nomination Bernie. Sanders is the undisputed front runner among Democratic presidential candidates hoping to challenge Donald Trump. Hey It's Alex Berenson New York so last week in Nevada. We saw the candidates are going after each other more intensely than ever before days. Before the caucuses there as Bernie Sanders was emerging as a progressive front runner with none of the more moderate candidates willing to drop out and Mike Bloomberg fragmenting devote even further good evening and welcome the Democratic presidential primary here in South Carolina. The primary in the south is just four days. Away and Super Tuesday is just a week away and this is the biggest primary day of the year as voters in fourteen states cast ballots and many of them. Tell us they have not actually made up mind so this this week with days to go until the South Carolina primary and signs that Sanders is gaining among African American voters. Things were even more wild and the debate moderators totally failed to keep control of the event which didn't help we're talking about. L. Look first of all. Let me come. I think she was talking about my plan. Not Yours talk right away. As expected it was a Sanders Pylon Bernie and I agree on a lot of things but I think I would make a better president than Bernie and the reason the candidates were trying to convey that nominating Bernie. Sanders would be dangerous. That's nominated democratic. Socialist is to deliver a second term. You trump we will elect Bernie Bernie will lose to Donald Trump and donald trump and the house and the Senate and some of the state houses will all go red and then between gerrymandering and pointing judges for the next twenty or thirty years. We're going to live with US and cost Democrats Their House majority and imperilled efforts to win the Senate twenty twenty cans. The time has come for us to stop acting like the presidency is the only office matters. Not only is this a way to get donald trump reelected. You got a house to worry. You got a Senate to worry about and this is this is really important. Hearing my name mentioned a little bit tonight maybe but what we saw from sanders was a candidate totally claiming his mantle and digging in on some of his most controversial position on Medicare for all we need to do is to do what every other major country on earth does guarantee healthcare to all people on Israel. I am very proud of being Jewish. I actually lived in Israel for some months but when I happen to believe. Is that right now? Sadly tragically in Israel through BB Netanyahu. You have a reactionary cest. Who is now running that country? What are the most revealing? Exchanges was on Cuban the Chinese Communist Party for lifting more people out of extreme poverty than any other country. You also have a track record of expressing sympathy for socialist governments in Cuba and in Nicaragua. Can Americans trust that? A democratic socialist president will not give Authoritarians a free pass. I have opposed authoritarianism all over the world and I was really. Sanders asked why he had praised some accomplishments of the cast ruining their tighter chip there. Of course you have a dictatorship in Cuba. What I said is what Barack Obama said in terms of Cuba. Cuba made progress on education. Yes I think. Really really bad to Barack Obama's they made hoping rave progress on education healthcare. That was Barack Obama. I told you speak and rather than try to back away from it. Sanders is essentially saying yes. I said it I stand by it. I was right and I'm not pivoting. Occasionally it might be good idea to be honest about American foreign policy and that includes the fact that America has overthrown governments all over the world in Chile in Guatemala in Iran and where dictatorships whether it is the Chinese or the Cubans. Do something good. You acknowledged. But you don't have. This is a core tenant of Sanders worldview his belief that the United States has often been a disruptive even destructive force overseas and by standing by that view as he becomes a front runner for a major party's presidential nomination. He's reinforcing one of his essential political calling cards. His consistency his ability to say these are the views I've had for decades. I'm right now I've been right for forty years and many voters really admire about him vice president fighting but the latest one issue sanders can't claim that kind of consistency and didn't try. We talk about progressive. Let's talk about being progresses. Walking dishes fears Emmanuel Church. Nine people shot dead by a white. Supremacist Bernie voted five times against the Brady Bill and monitor waiting waiting waiting period of twelve hours. I'm not saying he's responsible for the nine desk but that man would not been able to get that weapon with the waiting period that Ben will I suggest until you are cleared for most of his career? Sanders opposed crucial forms of gun regulation including a landmark Brady Bill in one thousand nine hundred and he voted to shield gun manufacturers lawsuits. I want allow Senator Sanders respond. Because you've gone after the insurance industry you've taken on pharmaceutical companies and you've taken on big tech. Why did you vote repeatedly to give gun manufacturers a pass Joe has voted for terrible trade agreements? Don't no no no seems to? This is a problem on all these other issues. He's just digging in his heels under attack. Here he says yes. I made a mistake. I have cast thousands of votes including bad votes. That was a bad book. And this is the rare part of his record that undercuts his claim to total consistency and authenticity. Over the years. I have today a D. minus voting record from the NRA but sanders opponents didn't let him off the hook. It's a chance for even like Bloomberg a former Republican to question sanders claims to progressive purity and to total consistency over a long career. And to do it heading into this critical next state. The issue of gun control has hurt sanders badly in South Carolina in the past. It's an issue that matters a lot to African American voters there and in two thousand Sixteen Hillary Clinton used it to great effect in the State. This time even. Bloomberg managed to get his footing in a handful of important exchanges including one in which he accused Sanders of and supported the NRA and certainly some of the Sanders is supported the NRA.

"south carolina" Discussed on FiveThirtyEight Politics
"Field advantage like literally thing and like that was a crowd that really seemed to be eager to to defend Biden and Bloomberg and also to Boo Warren. It seemed like at one point. The crowd was booing Warren while she was debating Bloomberg over his history with regards to sexist comments in the workplace. So let's talk about Bloomberg a little bit more but let's first talk about war Sanders for one second. Claire mentioned That Warren came out of the gate. Making an argument against Sanders was she or who was the most effective in in trying to take on the front runner in this race. Good question is for me. for anybody opinion or maybe maybe nobody stood out. I I don't know I kind of thought that ultimately the thing that will probably stick the most of the the Biden attacks on Sanders about I think it was biden about praising Cuba. Those came relatively late though. I thought isn't that doesn't that? Make it better for leaving viewers with an impression. Oh maybe if people stuck with it a similar gun control stuff. Yeah I disagree with that. Yeah we were arguing about this on the gun control. A happy to be proved wrong. This is just my initial thoughts is that that was such a thing in the two thousand sixteen primary and Sanders had the whole answer of like. Yeah I used to vote that way now. I vote this way the NRA was different thing back then that it feels as if perhaps that is the thing that will move past with the critiques of Sanders. That there will be bigger ones and that that is is in fact acquaint critique of him so I Kinda WanNa partly challenge your premise. Mike I think at this point every cared eight would benefit if Bernie Sanders lost five points in the polls Some might not love it. If Joe Biden Win South Carolina for various reasons Bloomberg might not love that but Bloomberg. I think would still rather take at this point. He won a narrow murky. Ugly Biden Win Repeat Still Rather Bernie falls five points. We can have a conversation about Super Tuesday being interesting. Maybe I'm actually a little bit overstating because Sanders Super Tuesday polls are are good but not grape. Anyone would benefit now from the front runner falling a bit. I'm more like the kind of collective effort I thought you know. Some one thing about Bernie is that so far he has been very effective. I mean he's a he's certainly. Well above average debater overall with a narrow range right ranges from average to pretty darn good. It's rarely amazing. And it's rarely below average. I think but he has a different task now. He's eventually kind of consolidate different. Voters that are not traditionally in his base right. He built up his base from fifteen percent in the summer to twenty two percent before Iowa. I consider that part pretty solid right but to get up to twenty seven percent where he is now or twenty eight percent or to get up to thirty or thirty five or forty and by the way twenty eight nationally might translate to twenty one percent in the south. And there's a lot of south to come here right. That requires them to reach out to new voters. Who May or may not be averse to his message but like he hasn't sold them yet right and so therefore like again. I say on the show sometimes like I in our last in first outright if someone were converted toward you then there's a reason why they can't flip back around to another candidate and I'm not sure you know I'm not sure how well he did with that part of his task I Thought he showed genuine anger at times. I think that's always always a risk. I mean he's kind of Mr righteous indignation lapsed into genuine anger at times move. Seem like in the pulling. We've done that like genuine. Anger is risky to take risky. Yeah maybe you serious. I'm serious. None of them. None of this is genuine. So and think about something as I'm thinking about. These episodes IPSOS poll Kansas. The worse grades one of them was will young Castro in a moment where he is very angry at Biden Biden. And perhaps it was mean but like by the way was kind of like if I may be me and yelling. And here's a Shard didn't get great. Remorse and angry are different things. I could dispute the premise. Gaylon can can you weigh in on this so either individual individually or as a collective do you think? The candidates made any headway in trying to slow or take down sanders or conversely. To nate point did you think sanders. How did you think Sanders did in trying to expand his coalition consolidate support? I think that two of the instances where the candidates did a pretty good job of leveling attacks against sanders have been mentioned in passing but more specifically when they brought up the mother. Emmanuel shooting the white nationalist terrorist attack and Biden immediately pivoted to sanders and said that would have never happened had sanders supported the Brady. Bill was like very personal to South Carolinians especially considering that sixty percent of the democratic electorate in South Carolina is black and that church is steps away from where the debate was that was a pretty intense attack that I feel like probably resonated with voters and it was early in the debate. Then the other one was where a couple of the of his opponents piled on sanders about Cuba and praising dictators and Authoritarians in general and then he started trying to kind of fight back while other people were speaking I think again it was either Buddha judge or Biden and in order to try to be heard over them just a split screen between somebody leveling attacks against sanders for supporting dictators and Sanders. Just really shouting at the top of his lungs when it comes to. And so like neither of those instances I don't think sanders came off looking very good and it was a pretty effective attack. When it comes to more broadly speaking how Sanders is going to move forward in this race and how the establishment and maybe more moderate candidates are going to attack him or even just parts of the party. I think this is where it all comes. Outright it's now or never and just diploma this a little bit. I'm down in South Carolina. Today I spoke with James Clever and we'll have the interview in the feed tomorrow but he talked a lot about what he sees wrong with Sanders. And I think you're going to hear a lot more of that kind of thing going forward so you don't think he's GonNa Endorse Sanders. Gaylon are breaking embargo. I do not think he's GonNa Indoor Sanders. So let's continue this conversation in just a minute..

"Thank you much more headline including Democratic Primary Race South Carolina which has now turned into an all out brawl. We'll hear from the party official trying to keep things under control later. Roger Stone tries to blow up the verdict against him but the judge in the case fires back hard against President trump that amores we continue so Carolina primary politics have a history of being hard hitting just look back at John McCain versus George W Bush in the two thousand campaign this time though the punches being thrown by Democrats many of them now being aimed at the front runner Bernie Sanders. The focus is on his past writings and statements and some of the attacks or the kind that could leave scars within the party during the general election campaign so with an eye toward that as well as more CNN town halls tomorrow night in the voting on Saturday we just spoke just before airtime the Democratic National Committee Chair. Tom Perez Press. I'm wondering what do you make of the turn that this race has now taken the stage? That were added. I mean it was bound to happen sometime but do you worry. It's turning into a circular firing squad that's going to hurt. Democrats in the long run or is this. Just this is the stage. We're at is inevitable. Well I I look at Two Thousand and eight. When we had Barack Obama Hillary Clinton John Edwards that I remember that debate. It was a very similar time to right now. I think it was in South Carolina and that was a that was a prizefight there. There was a lot of spirited discussion there and at the end of the day we came together as a party behind. Then Senator Obama and I'm confident we're going to do the same thing here and and what's even more compelling to me about right now. Anderson is that everybody understands that. Donald Trump is an existential threat to our democracy. And so it's not about any one candidate. It's about making sure that we come together. And so while you will see differences on the debate stage. We saw differences last week. What unites is far outweighs. What our differences are at some point if there is to be a serious challenge to Senator Sanders from one of the other Democratic candidates. Some some folks who are currently in the race. We're going to have to drop out. Is that something that you get involved with with? The campaigns in terms of having those are tough discussions. Is that just up to the campaigns to come to terms with that or do you make awkward? Calls are knock on the door and and suggest somebody dropout. I really. I think the voters are going to be the biggest people that help bring that about. I mean after this Saturday and after next Tuesday I think it will be undeniable that some campaigns. I don't know who that's going to be up to the voters but the candidates will have to take a really cold hard look in the mirror and say m. i. viable for the long haul. I WANNA play quickly. Something that Michael Bloomberg's campaign advisor said this morning on. Cnn's new day Bernie has all of this loopy stuff in his background. Saying things like women get cancer from having too many orgasms or toddler should run around naked and touch each other's genitals to start insulate themselves from porn. Why has this stuff? Not Ben more surfaced. He's written about women's Rape Fantasies. That hasn't been surfaced. That's the loony side of Bernie. He's referring to essays the center published in the Sixties and Seventies. At least one got some attention. I think during his first presidential campaign. What do you make of the Bloomberg campaign bringing them up well again? Every candidate is going to do what they think is going to help them win in the end of the day. It's going to be up to the voters to decide which candidate shares my values which candidate can win. And how do we take it to Donald Trump because this election is impossible to overstate the importance of this election? So I'M GONNA leave it up to candidates to figure out what they think is in their best interest. I recall vividly in the past. That you know. We've had some very spirited moments at this point in the cycle but again. I know that everybody understands because everybody has taken a pledge in it in an unequivocal enthusiastic. Pledge to support the winner and that happened without hesitation and I'm confident that they will do that. Rama manual a few minutes ago. He said Tom Perez is going to need good war room. A good lawyer and good parliamentarian at the Convention that the nomination fight is going to get really ugly around the convention. Do you have all those things? We have a great and I'm very confident in our team. And I know there's a lot of prognostications predictions and again I would remind everybody you need almost four. There's four thousand delegates almost to the convention. You need one thousand nine hundred ninety one to win on the first ballot and we have allocated grand total of one hundred so far. So we're in mild to the marathon right now. South Carolina's the first opportunity at great scale for African Americans the backbone of our party to make their voices heard and that is really really important as we move through this Democratic Primary Caucus we will be prepared for any and every eventuality make no mistake about it. Germantown President John. Thank you my pleasure. South Carolina primary just ahead including discussion with African American voters there about whom they see as the strongest candidate plus dog with former Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel about what the three former mayors in the race offer voters with.

"That is a huge deal with the Democratic Party and south, Carolina. So anytime candidate takes the time to attend those events. Let's everyone know that you're really interested in South Carolina Interested in South Carolina voters and you're GONNA do whatever it takes to get South Carolina voters as well. Now let's talk about the barbecue aspect. So when you come this way you have to eat department Q. The low country I think they're more vinegar base. I think the upstate where I'm from is more mustard yellow base. Then I think in the middle is more like ketchup and vinegar base, but you have to come and try all of it and then a lot of people go to Rodney Scott Barbecue. So there's one in Hemingway South Carolina, and then there's one in Charleston so. Tom's dyer what he did for the arts kind of Cook off was he brought the entire Rodney Scott restaurant from Charleston to the kickoff. So he's out there serving whole mills of Barbecue. So those are just two well known staples in two well-known Barbecue joints that people know national because Rodney Scott. Says actually rank nationally with their barbecue. So you have to come to South Carolina and try those to barbecue places. I feel like if a candidate is thinking about trying to set up like the perfect photo opportunity barbecues like a worse case scenario you thanks well, if you see. You. Need to take the picture before they start eating at least what the four going into the mouth. Breath thank you so much for joining us. It's been a really really great conversation. Thank you. It's been my pleasure in Coal Co.. New York. But I am so grateful that you call me to be here today. So thank you so much. This concludes the final episode of season, two of your primary playlist I. Hope you found this helpful guide to the INS and out of the early states that plays such a large role in selecting our nominee..

"Insurance is good enough for them to take care of their families. So I think we're they're looking for, is that person who will make sure that there will be taken care of because they're state isn't doing their legislator isn't doing. So what can you do for me? If I have to go to the polls to vote for you something that we're hearing from a couple of experts in different early states and I'm wondering if it's the same in South Carolina is that one difference? This election cycle versus past election cycles is there's been kind of a gun nationalization of. Of the primary and so voters are looking they're looking at national polls there. Is More than they had in past cycle do you think that's also true in South Carolina? Do you think the local traditions and in an endorsement still really reigns supreme I do I really do So for instance, a lot of people who endorsed Kamla and Start Carolina are now moving to. Joe. Biding there's this group of Women in Columbia Law Richland area called the wrecking crew they were very. Instrumental with support and calmly they were very instrumental supporting Hillary Clinton in. Now since Kamla course got out the race, they have thrown their support behind Joe Biden. So I think endorsements really work in like southern states or maybe like a rural areas because a lot of times people follow the lead of their community leaders or their elected officials is so I think that's why endorsements are still important and they mean a lot right everybody will be vying for Congressman Clermont's endorsement. But of course you he has to have a reason to endorse you, and if he does endorse, you is going to be at the last minute. So his endorsement means a lot. So just having certain people endorsed, you'd be from certain elated officials, certain community leaders and even certain faith leaders is a big deal in South Carolina, there is a narrative that Obama had proved in two thousand eight that Obama had proved he was appealing to white voters by winning Iowa, and then that gave the green light for voters in South Carolina to vote for him the do you think the order of the early states? Influences the others no I think every other state is like a football scrimmage and when you get to South Carolina you're really playing hardball. So no I think everything else is just We're just sitting here drinking tea eating cookies, but once you finally get to South Carolina is when everything really put the rubber to the road what are some of the big swings are shifts that you've seen in the primary so far? So when calmly I.

"Because people want so hard to vote for somebody that they think can win even though Corey connected with folks in Kamla connect with folks I. Think they didn't get enough support because people just didn't feel like they could win and they said, you know, let me go with the safe choice or what impact do you think it's had on people that we did start out with the most diverse field of candidates in history and of the field has been whittled down to I. Don't want to say the least diverse because we're just basically at where we were before but a pretty diverse field. I think. Voters like me it disheartens you. I mean, you see candidates that are very qualified. Candidates of color women, color women, candidates in your like they're very qualified. If you look at their resume alone. You know that there they would be great. So the fact that they didn't get the traction I think it probably disheartened some people but also still think that again because feel so large that people felt like there had to be some kind of way to whittle it down. People feel like okay. Now, we're getting to a manageable number. I. Think that seeing that manageable number not include. More. People of Color get people to feel like we're probably not at a at a post racial society that some of US may have thought we had when you had a president. But I'm I'm forever the optimist and so I'm so happy. I feel like regardless of where the nominee is, the question is really going to be about what that nominees leadership and cabinet looks like An. Still, feel like there's lots of opportunity to have a lot more diversity in an administration. No matter who the candidate is more diverse than we have in this current administration. So although it's a little disheartening that the person didn't make. President I'm not I'm still hopeful that we will have some of these folks where we haven't seen the last senator booker heiress. So I think we'll see those folks in positions that still are meaningful ineffective. I think the from. An outside perspective part of what's so interesting about this year that's different than past presidential cycles is that like every voter as pundit like.

People have contributed nine million dollars to former vice president. Joe Biden leads the polls in South Carolina. And he's hoping for a strong debate showing in a state. He desperately needs to gain momentum. He told reporters that it's important. His African American supporters have their voices heard if the case of the people are in South Carolina. They have an opportunity to essentially determine the next president. Because what's going to happen. Is They have an opportunity to win. This and this is going to go into super two very strong.

He's a second generation realtor. He was born in ohio but he went to charleston with his family family and <hes> he has been featured on. H._d._t._v.'s island lies three different times so he really knows the charleston area and so i'm really happy to have him into. Welcome him onto the show. We're going to talk about all the ins and outs of retiring charleston south carolina so welcome bill thank you. Thanks for having me debbie no problem. Let's get right to it yeah. What do people like best about living in charleston. I mean i've visited there here so i can have a long list but you you talk to people every day. What are their favorite things about. Charleston charleston has a little bit of something something for. Everybody like to say we were. We've been voted the number one city in the united states by the readers of travel and leisure for seven years in a row so <hes> so we are huge vacation destination. I'm an that's what i find. A lot of people really love. Is i live where where people vacation you lucky so we could just pack up <hes> this past saturday. We decided let's go to the beach in the morning so we just packed act up twenty minutes later. We were at the beach with the kids. That's fabulous and you know and you know with with tourism comes your world class restaurants and you know you're museums in your sites in all of that good stuff so it kinda all bundles into one well. That's great will so what about the weather. I know there's probably a lot of humidity. 'cause you're so close to the water but many days of sun and what's the average temperature because people looking to charleston are looking for warmer tame pitchers in especially in the winter yeah so <hes> we are a sub tropical climate so we do get hot and humid <hes> by hot and humid. I mean today for example. It's august. They're saying we're gonna have a heat index of probably about one hundred five five two hundred and ten <hes> but our average temperatures you know during peak summer months we are upper eighties to mid nineties and but that is rounded out we do have very mild winters that rarely see snow out with peak winter temperatures. Were gonna see highs. You know forties fifties. It'll drop below freezing for a few days. <hes> two years ago we saw snow well. I accumulation in eight years so i'm sure everyone freaked out when they saw what five snowflakes or oh it was great it. It was like having a snow day as an adult. Everything was closed because they don't have snow plows to get you out. There is probably an eighth of an inch and everyone freaked out. We actually got about six inches. Oh my god in places and about four days later it was gone and people were golfing but they all stayed inside and had had a good time so that's it is but yeah it is right there on the water so it's kinda nice but we do get that breeze that comes in and kind of keeps it a little cooler but in the winter you know instead of the snow. We do get that breeze. We'll so we do get that that kind of biting biting wind but we don't get the the six months of snow plows and all of that so gladly trade. Yes some wind for six months. Yeah don't rub it in okay so a message taxes down there. If somebody's moving from high tax ax state down to south carolina they hire lower what are they property taxes sales tax and that sort of thing <hes> south carolina's very tax friendly for retirees for us <hes> our property taxes are essentially about half a percent of your value. Give or take <hes>. We're in the top six six. I believe last time i saw of the most budget friendly property taxes the states <hes> sales tax <hes> little bit higher here in charleston county. It's about nine percent <hes> than if you're eating out there's another two percent added to that and then another five percent liger drinks which but it evens out with the with the property taxes and then i think people live in their house more than they go out to eat right so it probably they can choose when they're going to how much drinking ranking it does encourage teetotalling. I suppose yes yes craig. Yeah it adds up. If you go out a lot but i personally i come from the restaurant industry three and it <hes> it doesn't really hurt restaurants or anything with other taxes. You know social security income isn't taxed here. That's good just very nice and there's also a fifteen thousand dollar deductions for seniors receiving any other type of income. I will not talk about that for a minute. What does that involve <hes>. That would be something to contact your tax professional about. You know i've been a real estate agent. I know the the basics of the taxes. I'm not fluent in all the tax laws i but i do know having many clients that have retired here that you know it is very tax friendly for them. Let sounds good. So is the cost of living higher or lower than other parts of the country. How does that compare <hes> we are slightly above average for the united states as a whole so so it would depend on where you're coming from myself. I came from youngstown ohio where you can imagine the cost of living is extremely low compared to here her but we see a lot of people moving from bigger cities <hes> new york chicago boston d._c. Compared to their we are lower. <hes> you know the last on the scale where one hundred was average ridge. We were like a one zero five. We're just just above average. It all works itself out and that's the main thing well. When people who are retiring wanna mu oh they also look into like hospitals and medical facilities doctors and things like that so how what is that scene like down there in charleston <hes> <hes> so our main hospital downtown is called 'em u._s._c. which stands for the medical university of south carolina as a teaching hospital will and it is the number one hospital in south carolina <hes> that's according to u. S. news and world report <hes> you know in addition to that there are there's the v._a. Hospital and then the two other major area are three actually three other major hospitals east cooper medical center rubber saint francis in so we do have a large medical presence here in charleston and that's not just downtown on they do have branches that go out all the way up to somerville which is about forty five minutes away a little suburb of charleston and there's plenty of medical facilities here sure great well now. What about the walkability. I remember one time when i visited charleston <unk> rickshaws to take you places but i'm sure not. Everybody wants go to someplace in a rickshaw but i'm sure they probably dot h in. I thought it was fun because we let someone drive you around. It was fun <hes> so is it a walkable city or do you have to drive everywhere and their public transportation. There is public transportation on not the greatest right now. They're working on that. <hes> as as we're growing we've been growing fairly fast over the past few years <hes> as for walkability that would depend on where you are. <hes> people say charleston you think of just the peninsula which could be walkable but i would suggest having a car <hes> most things aren't just like walk down the store. Get loaf of bread and come back but as a whole you know the whole area does cover three counties when i when i say charleston i kinda talk about that. Whole area <hes> and you know each has its little pockets. Some neighborhoods are little more walkable than others. <hes> you know if you're active a bike lake. <hes> i take my bike down all the time and ride around and you see a lot of people doing that great so i i would say bike. Ability downtown is probably a little better than walkability depending on where you would live. If you're downtown everywhere else would be a definite definite a drive to most places. I remember when i was there. The restaurants were just awesome and i know from reading other reports that more and more restaurants are opening like you said it's a it's a place for restaurants and and shopping to and i know there's probably a lot of museums the nightlife scene you talk about that so that people understand a little bit more about what they're gonna do when they moved there so my previous life i was a a bartender so this is one of my specialties so yeah like i said because of the tourism we've got these world class restaurants with james beard winning chefs. <hes> trip advisor puts out there travelers choice awards every year. We had three restaurants in the top ten and wow and it's not just goes restaurants that are you know. Let's get all dressed up in fancy. You're in the south. If there's one thing people love to do in the south it's just grab some fried oysters in a cold beer and and that's dinner wow you know they might not be winning awards but they've won awards now my god yet try twisters. I'd be there in a heartbeat yet so fried oysters thor's southern barbecue just that good old southern cooking lots cornbread and collard greens but like i said conversely. We've got these three top ten restaurants in the country so you could do that or you could go to say halls chop house which is a nationally known steakhouse and have one of the best you've ever had great. So what is this thing about as i've heard it's called second sunday on king st tell me about that because it sounds interesting yeah so king. Street is the main main street downtown. Where most of the shopping thing is when people picture shopping in charleston king street is what they picture every second sunday of the month as it is named and they closed down about half mile street and no vehicle traffic is allowed and about five hours people just wander the streets rates in the restaurants will pool tables out onto the sidewalk. They'll be street performers playing music sidewalk sales and you know people we'll set up booths to sell stuff and it's just a just a fun time to kind of experienced like what old world charleston probably w was like before there was all the traffic and sounds wonderful. I i also fights for that absolutely so tell me some reasons that somebody would want to a retired at charleston a lot of my clients <hes> when i counsel them. They're trying to decide where north carolina south carolina florida wherever they wanna go. What what why would they want to pick. <hes> retirement in charleston talk about that. You know what you said at the beginning that you're a history buff you know american history as we know it kind of started here with the civil war so everywhere you turn there's remnants of the civil war whether you know you're taking the boat out to fort sumter where the first shots were fired or just the other day i was walking around downtown down and there was an old cemetery and lo and behold there was someone who signed the declaration of independence was buried there. Wow so you know if you're a history three buff. There's a ton of history.

"We've talked a number of times over the past year or so about the billion dollar boondoggle known as the VC summer nuclear expansion project. The project began as a shared effort between the summer nuclear generation station Scana santee Cooper, the goal was adding two reactors onto to the South Carolina plant after a decade and nine billion dollars the expansion bogged down there were many delays cost overruns and finally July of two thousand seventeen they cried and gave up. Now, despite the abandonment more than seven hundred thousand South Carolina, utility customers see charges related to the project. They're having to foot the Bill for this boondoggle. Lawmakers have been back and forth on whether you know, should should the payments. Be allowed to be continue to foot the Bill these customers. Here's what we know. SE? Ian, jeez rates are already high due to VC summer. Santee Cooper Duke Energy progress Duke Energy, Carolinas. They won't rate hikes this in a state that spends more per capita on energy than any other state. Joining before few minutes today, Dr orange myth senior fellow with a promises to who says that there's a solution. Dr Smith released a report today, the kind of breaks down for us. And we're gonna talk about it, and Dr Smith, welcome in always good to have you. Good. Good to you. Joe? Yes. Exciting day for us. This is the report that we have been working on for quite a while. And it takes a really unique approach to the idea of energy competition within of course, the idea of energy competition itself is is a novel approach at least two us 'cause we've never had it here. We've we've had the idea that when it comes to electric city. There's something known as a natural monopoly. And that is where you can only have one supplier one choice vertically integrated all the way from generating electricity transmitting and then district distributing it. So it's kind of an eye opener for a lot of folks to say, hey, really, I mean in some states in America, you have a choice of your energy provider. You have. Competition and the answer is. Yes, yes. There are places where there is choice, and that is foreign to us here in South Carolina, or in because we've never had that choice, but you go to other states like, Texas, and some you literally you get to choose kinda like back in the old days when bell south was the only game in town for your phone service. Now, you can choose same thing with with electric city, some states allow you that and in your report, Dr Smith, you talk about that we actually have a number of different energy providers electrical electronic providers in the state. We could have that competition. If we just kind of changed the way we do things. Right. Right. And you know, you, and I when we call together, we all refer to our common childhood growing up in Greer, South Carolina. And I used Greer as an example because I remember distinctly our home. Sometimes we would lose power in the neighbors would not are the neighbors would lose power. And we was not, and I found out the reason was one of us was on Greer Commissioner of public works power. And the other was on power. Yup. We had we had Honi that were side by side. They're on different substations in different networks, and we didn't have that choice. Our neighbors were fined one, and we were in the other. But our idea is this. Let's look across the border at something that they're doing in Georgia in Georgia. If you have a road of nine hundred kilowatts or more. And nine hundred kilowatt load or pull on the power grid is about the size of target store or WalMart or sometimes a Walgreens, but probably slightly larger than a wall in shorts. You have a choice if you have that level of road. You're able to put out for bid what you wanna pay for your power per kilowatt hour. So you may have the co-op which, you know, you're probably somewhere around Blue Ridge electric co-op here. You may have Duke Energy. You may have any Commissioner public works or what would they call? It municipal or a meeting and those three would compete for your business. We're thinking it would be an economic development broom if people found out that you'd come to South Carolina, and in the process of siting their plants they would have different utilities fighting over
