Fresh update on "stacey abrams" discussed on The Hugh Hewitt Show: Highly Concentrated

"In terms of the red wave, I think the other story, and this gets back to Alec publications. We ranked the 50 governors earlier this year. All of our 5 star governors who were up for reelection easily won. They easily won reelection, but they did it in commanding fashion. Like I said, they won by way bigger margins than they did in 2018. And I would give credit. I would point to their policies and their leadership during COVID and coming out of it with a lot of credit for that. From flat taxes to standing by their right to work policies, but also their approaches to economic lockdowns, governor Kemp in Georgia is a great example, another flat tax state, and some people might say, well, these governors, Kim Reynolds, she didn't have a strong opponent in Iowa this time around. Well, Brian Kemp was running against Stacey Abrams again. Crushed her. 2018, he barely squeaked by. I think I'm a point and a half. This time he crushed her. That reminds me, there is a special election on Tuesday in Georgia. Herschel Walker needs to win that. Early voting today, early voting tomorrow, then it's over. So they've had record early turnout. I think that's very good for Herschel, but people need to get out there and make sure because they might have to rough weather on election day. Republicans are typically same day voters and now I want to go to Tesla recommend voting reform packages at all. Do you do any work in that? Because it's so weird across the 50 states. Yeah, you know, we don't do Alex known also for our model policy. And we don't tackle election reform when it comes to model policy, but of course, when you get a lot of great minds together in state lawmakers, of course, that's top of mind for so many people. And a lot of those great conversations happen with our members, but as far as out of model policy, it's not something that we in terms of who's joining Alec. Obviously, people from reform minded states like Ohio and Iowa and Florida, they're all here in Arizona. Does it help a minority state? Republicans in California. I mean, they are like 8 of them. Should they come at two? Should they join Alec? They've got to be here. And I've talked to a couple of friends from New York this week that I've seen and it's a huge boost for them, I think, just to know that they're not alone because they might feel like that and their state capital in Albany or Sacramento, but you come to Alec and I think get fired up and you can take a lot of good things back home with you and hopefully bring some legislators with you next time. And begin to persuade. Exactly. And all about persuasion, it's not about jamming any right wing ideology down to about what works at the state level. So how long have you you're young? How long have you been doing this for Alec? Alec for about three and a half years now. I was a member of Alec and a previous job that I had. And so I've been around the organization for probably a total of 7, 8 years. Is it starting to even grow beyond what it had been? It's been around forever. Yeah, yeah. Like I said, we're going on our 50th anniversary next year, but the organization is growing our membership is growing. And I think it's because of the ideas..

"Are. I hope that more people will wake up and get this. Eric, I want to get to get to this real quick. We have going forwards in 2024. I've been making the case on my radio show and in my podcast. Listen, I don't care how good the candidate is. I don't care if it's Trump. I don't care if it's desantis. I do care, but you know what I'm saying? If we don't win this the ballot battle, I think it's ballots versus whomever else. Because if I understand this correctly, we've basically the Electoral College, I mean, the Democrats have finally figured it out. They didn't give a damn. It seems to me about it for quite some time. We won the popular vote, if you will, during the during this midterm election cycle. But they won more races or we didn't win as many races as I would have liked, but you go and you look at the places where they harvested ballots, whether that be Pennsylvania, Michigan is gone. I mean, unless unless Republicans straight up learn how to valid harvest and buy and fully, that's gone. Forget that swing state. That's not a swing state. With Gretchen Whitmer over that, and that legislature there, it's gone. Arizona may be gone, Pennsylvania is gone. Georgia, there's still ballot harvesting despite some of the new laws there. How important is this we better buy into this ballot, or at least this is maybe you have a different take. We better buy ante ballot harvesting. I wasn't even here three weeks ago, Eric, or we don't win. I don't care who the nominee is. Yeah, and this is where I normally try to dispense white pills. I try to dispense good news on the podcast. This is one case where even I have to admit, yeah, after the results of these elections, even as much as I love president Trump, I think he has the best shot at winning. At this point, I don't even see an electoral path to victory for any Republican in 2024, as of now, Arizona, Georgia, their trending, the wrong direction. I mean, Kemp one, but let's be honest, I think walker is going to lose. I think Warnock is going to win reelection in the runoff there. But I agree with you. And this is where, again, the GOP needs to learn to adapt or die, because they'll say, and Republican voters understandably will say, oh, our principles as we support going to the polls on election day and we don't like early voting and absentee balloting or ballot harvesting. Well, okay, like it or not, that is the name of the game now. They have legalized the number of states. Michigan, as you pointed out, Whitmer won by ten points. And that was on the same day, Michigan voters voted in favor of, I think what was a proposal to ballot measure two? Oh, right. Right, right. So legalize state funded ballot drop boxes and among other things, private donations to fund elections. Basically. Michigan's gone. I think Pennsylvania is gone. Arizona, maybe, probably Georgia, half and half. It depends on the candidates. Obviously, Stacey Abrams lost, whereas Warnock is going to win. Wisconsin is still very much 50 50. Well, it's actually did very well in Wisconsin except for the governor's race. But yeah, and this is an example that can be set that the precedent was set by none other than my home state, California. In 2016, in late 2016, California passed a law to legalize ballot harvesting. This is way before COVID happened. They legalized Val harvesting by third parties, private organizations, Democrat organizations, whatnot. And then in 2018, I'll never forget this. I was working campaigns in 2018 for a congressman Devin Nunes reelection and others..

Yeah, of course. Love the organization. Walk our audience through pre born and the important work you guys do. Yeah, so this is why it's exciting to be on the Charlotte church show today because you have spent countless hours championing the cause of these little babies across America on your programming and then the general electorate for people to act on their pro life beliefs. And that is what pre born does and particularly in partnership with your show here. We are the competition Planned Parenthood on an hour by hour basis. We're marketing on the Internet, reaching young women who are searching for abortion and our ads are competing directly with Planned Parenthood. We get them on get them to click on our ads, get them to our national call center. Route them to one of our clinics nearest them, show them their baby on ultrasound, refuting the ridiculous argument that, you know, there's no heartbeat as Stacey Abrams at 6 that's a fabrication, right? She lost on that, by the way. Show when they see that heartbeat, they know. It's like a smile. If somebody smells at you and back is typically means they're happy as Sam as they smile at you at the United States and if you hear a baby's heartbeat, it's not a blob of tissue it's a life. Yes. So that's what we have. Listeners partnering with pre born to do across the United States and I got to tell you, Charlie. So far this year, 43,000 women, 43,000 have chosen life for their babies in freeborn clinics.

Jack Posobiec Shares His Take on the Arizona Midterm Disaster

"Us as Jack posobiec Jack. Welcome to the program. I want to talk China with you, Jack. But first, your thoughts on Maricopa County looks like they're about to certify Jack, you or our co-pilot throughout the entire saga with us. That will go down in the history books, your thoughts, Jack. Well, Charlie, I'll just say this, if what happened in Maricopa County had happened in Fulton county, Georgia, you would have had Stacey Abrams and the NAACP and everyone else from MSNBC to CNN, the entire litany coming out, demanding an investigation of what went wrong and they'd be calling it voter suppression and to be calling it duly so, Charlie, you noted it. The day before talking about long lines, potential traffic jams that we saw, people waiting for hours, people turned away. It's clearly voter suppression. It is the textbook definition of voter suppression. And for them to simply refuse to acknowledge it, flies in the face of everything that we saw that day, everything that I saw even as someone who's coming from outside of Arizona, that's not the way that elections ought to be held in the United States. And by the way, if we're going to say that we stand with the people of China in their calls for freedom, then we ought to also make sure that we don't be hypocrites because we have to look at our own system and pull out what the splinter in our own eye.

Which Side Cares Most About Your Vote?

"I love what the guy Antonio said that called in, you know, I just wanted sometimes what I mean Antoine. I said Antonio Laura helped me Jesus. Antoine, one of my good friends name is Antoine. But I like what he had to say because I like for people to give perspective to me about certain things, you know, sometimes I'm like, you know, I like for people to talk to me like I talk. And if a person would sit me down and telling me, hey, man, you know, let's keep it real. You know, you're allowing yourself to just only pick one side and you're going to pigeonhole yourself. And the reason why I say these things because I want black people to understand this is that you're going to get yourself to the point that if you only vote for one side, the other side is going to find a way to not need you. And they're never going to do anything that you want them to do and they'll try to find a way to survive. Let me just give you an example. Donald Trump won the election pretty significantly in 2016, and I think he got like 8% of the black vote. I mean, that's, I mean, y'all, that's almost no black people voted for Trump. Compared to out of the voters, 92% voted for Democrats and Trump won by a lot against Hillary Clinton. And also out in Georgia, you have the Georgian governor, winning by, I don't know how many hundreds of thousands of votes he beat. Stacey Abrams by and black women voted like 90 something percent for the Democrat party in black men voted a little less 80 some percent. And when you do that, you have to, you have to look at this. You have to say, am I being pursued equally by both parties? This is about money. It's about numbers and strategy. It's not about emotion or even race. If you spend $20 million on advertisement and you know that black folks ain't really going to vote for you anyway. For whatever reason, they don't even want to hear what you have to say. You're going to spend less of that money and you're going to speak less to that community than other places because you're not going to get their vote. That's what I think ends up happening.

How Do We Crack the Upper Midwest? Will Chamberlain Weighs In

"Just go ahead and assume everyone agrees we need to do ballot harvesting in early voting. All right, that's a given. We have to do that. And the mechanisms for doing that to be complicated, but you have to do it. But what do we have to do because there were a lot of people who didn't agree with us. And we need issues and we need people to vote with us, not just count on the mechanisms of voting. So how do we crack the upper Midwest? Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania. So I mean, there's obviously competing theories. I'm hearing some theories out there that are like, well, the problem this time was that Trump wasn't on the ballot, so therefore we should have won those places. Well, we didn't win them in 2020 either. I am kind of not full disclosure. I don't think Trump should run again in 2024. I know he's about to announce today, but I don't think he's the right candidate. His name recognition is a 100%. There's no growth in his support possible. And we just saw what happened to Stacey Abrams and beto o'rourke, you know, two people who had lost previous elections or one or two previous elections and ran again and they performed worse than they had previously. I think I don't think Trump does not do well in a general election against any Democrat. This time around, I don't think that there's the raison d'etre for him, not to be all fancy and French, but is just not there. And there are better candidates. I mean, I've been tweeting a lot. I think we should go with a guy who won Florida by 20. That seems really straightforward to me. He seems pretty good. Maybe we should go with that guy.

What Should Be the Right's Top Issue? Larry Elder Weighs In

"No matter whether it's Trump, or it's elder, or it's desantis, or what do you think needs to be that top issue that Republicans are moving forward with? Because there's been a lot of controversy about whether or not we got the messaging rate, I feel like we did. I don't know how you can say that talking about people's pocketbooks and their safety is wrong. But what should it be? Well, it's pocketbook issues, but I do think we underestimated the power of a couple of issues. One abortion. The other one is this phone issue of so called election denied. When roe V wade got overturned, I wasn't terribly concerned about it, although there was a flurry for a while, threat on the part of conservatives, it's going to energize the Democrats. But I thought it was going to go away. I thought it had gone away. The polling suggested that it had, but the exit polling suggested that the polling was wrong. It was the number two issue after the economy and well ahead of crime. And so we got that wrong. And I think a lot of Republicans failed to convince people that the reality is all the reversal of growth did is put this issue back to the states where it was for the first nearly 200 years of our republic. What's wrong with that? And I think a lot of Democrats believe that rogue reversal romantic abortion was going to be illegal. And I think it was a bad move on the part of Lindsey Graham to suggest that there's going to be some sort of national legislation to codify restrictions on abortion. It should not be a federal issue either pro choice or pro life. It should be a statewide issue. And I think that scared a lot of people. Regarding the election denying nonsense, you know, Carrie Lake, I thought Hanley pretty well when she informed her voters that Hillary has been denying elections for 5 years and Stacey Abrams denying elections for two years and Al Gore to this day believes that the Supreme Court put George W. Bush in office Vinny Thompson the chair of the January 6th committee tried to overturn the election first week of January 2005 by claiming that the Ohio debo voting machines have been tampered with, there's no evidence that that my point is for 22 years Democrats have been denying elections. I think a lot of Democrats are unaware of that. The reason I know that is I was in Dallas at an airport just a couple of days ago, Jen, and I'm talking to this moderate self described moderate, professor, and he was talking about how he felt that election denying earth the Republicans on Tuesday. And I told him what I told you about Hillary denying election for 5 years. He said, and I quote, I never heard her do that. I said, professor with all due respect, you are part of the problem that

Will Trump Make Another Run in 2024?

"But ladies and gentlemen, I want to talk about president Donald Trump. He claims that he's going to come out. I would say he claims that sound like a negative start to the conversation. It's not to be claims. I believe that he's going to make an announcement he has reported that he would make a huge announcement at Mar-a-Lago. I think on the 16th of something like that, and he's going to have a big announcement. And I think he's going to announce that he's running for president, the president of the United States of America. However, there's a lot of people, and I want to hear y'all's comments. Especially if you don't believe you would vote for Trump over desantis. There's been a lot of rumbling, right? Newt Gingrich, I got the article here where he had come out and said that he thinks that Trump should reconsider running for president, making that announcement after what has happened in the midterms. Now, I don't fully agree, but in part, I think about it. Because I think that the turnout and the Toonami wasn't it wasn't apparent. And I think there's a few candidates. I'm not going to say their names. There's a few candidates that I don't think we're strong candidates that Donald Trump endorsed over other candidates that I believe were stronger. We can not forget that Donald Trump endorsed a guy other than Brian Kemp and Brian Kemp destroyed snagging. I mean, Stacey Abrams. He destroyed her. I mean, I mean, God, dang. He almost did is good as Ron DeSantis did in Florida. And so you see that that's a misstep that I don't know what he was thinking. The people of Georgia don't agree with what he was thinking. They obviously went for Kemp.

Not All Gloom and Doom for Conservatives

"Jen, I want to get your take just right off the bat. Obviously, what the heck happened yesterday? And your opinion? You know, after I think I went a little apoplectic. And then I just started laughing like a crazy person. It's all sort of like settled in now. I think. You know, I don't think it's as bad as the mainstream news media is setting it up to be. It's really funny, Carl, because if you listen to everybody on and I do, you know, as our friend Larry elder says, he watches these MSNBC and CNN said we don't, as you guys don't have to. I've been doing that today to see what the other side is saying. And they are gloating and they're talking about the red wave that never was. But a few reminders admittedly, I'm disappointed that the House of Representatives is not the landslide that we all thought. I predicted that Republicans would probably get up to about 225 seats. That's probably not going to happen. Maybe close. But it's a slow trickle of results. That's the disappointment. But when you consider what has happened across the board, the Senate map was never favorable to Republicans in this election cycle. It was favorable to Democrats. And the Republican Party created so much momentum that we actually put the Senate in play, which is why we started hearing the conversations in the first place about the red wave. I mean, think about it. Lee Zelda may not be the governor of New York today, but the fact that he got that close in the state of blue is New York. That's amazing. And then in my home state of California, what's been awesome to watch is in congressional races for the House of Representatives throughout the state. They've had, they've had districts where they've pulled money from the Democrat, and they've had to put it in other races because things were looking so bad.

"Everybody talks about how man how smooth the Florida's election process is, why can't the rest of the United States be like Florida? Well, the truth of the matter is to be like Florida, you gotta fight. And you gotta be willing to take some lumps. And sadly, I think oftentimes, as Republicans, we lose some of the races that we lose and we lose some of the fights that we lose because we're not fighting and we're not looking at the audience of one that in my opinion, it got above. We're so worried about what this person thinks and what that person thinks, but unfortunately there's no way to advance the cause of freedom. The left gets this when they advance the cause of Marxism, they understand that they're not gonna make friends with the Republicans. Moderate moderate Republicans are a joke. If you think somehow you're gonna elect moderate Republicans or so called rhinos and all of a sudden, the left is gonna get along with them. You have another thing coming. Commies don't stop.

Electronic Voting Machines Are the Threat to Democracy

"Let's hear the audio clip from Tucker Carlson, audio clip number one. And what happened today in Maricopa County where some huge percentage of voting machines, electronic voting machines, according to the Arizona republic, 30%. They claim these are dominion voting machines. But it almost doesn't matter. Electronic voting machines didn't allow people to vote, apparently. And that, whatever you think of it, the cause of it, it shakes people's faith in the system. That is an actual threat to democracy. And it points up the core problem, which is we're not really very serious about democracy if we're using electronic voting machines, or if we're not requiring photo ID to vote, we could have secure elections. We don't because the small number of people don't want them, but until we do, you're going to have these moments where everybody in the country fears volatility because one side doesn't believe the result is yeah, and that's so true. Let me take you back to a column of back from 2019 from sun sentinel. It starts out like this. Governor Ron DeSantis suspended Palm Beach county's elections chief Friday and installed a Republican lawyer to oversee voting during the next presidential contest and one of the state's most democratic counties. A woman by the name of Susan butcher, she was a Democrat. She failed to properly conduct at the time three recounts in the 2018 midterm election. So desantis instead, suspended her and named the West Palm Beach attorney Wendy link after suspending her, her permanent replacement.

Democrats Vote Early, Republicans Vote Day Of

"Elections now have transformed into Democrats voting early and Republicans voting on election day. That has become not only more of a train we saw even in 2020. 2018, early on, this would have not been true. Early on what election, early voting would have had typically Republicans had some early votes, so did the Democrats, but it was not as pronounced as we're seeing now. I'll give you an example of Arizona. We just saw that most of all the early votes that came in were decided to lay Democrat. Georgia, again, this was one and we'll talk about more in depth in just a minute, but Georgia, the early voting was, I mean, more than just decidedly demographic. It was overwhelmingly Democrat. But yet when the day of voting came in early day of these went overwhelming Republican and you had Brian Kemp who won easily over Stacey Abrams and down the ticket where they were in the first 45 minutes or an hour of reporting when these early vowels were being counted. Kim, everybody on the ticket was down. All that flip that on day of voting. So what is this really interesting now from a perspective of a Republican and a Democrat either the Democrats now depend on early voting, they're using the mail the early vote about my own or they're using early voting to get their votes out. Republicans are now depending on day of voting, which is going to be interesting over time because it's always been one of those things if you have issues on day of if you had last minute things come up, depending on the day of voting is typically has a little more fraud to it, especially if you're in a state like Georgia and others who have a very generous early voting time frame going backwards or three weeks where you can actually in person early vote during the week and on weekends.

The Blame Should Be Laid at the Foot of the American Church

"I was just blown away because I wrote a book called letter to the American church where I've been saying that the death of America will be laid the blame should be laid at the foot of the American church at Christian leaders and pastors who are either doing nothing or saying nothing or in some cases siding with people who are destroying this country who are enemies of religious liberty who are passionate advocates of late term abortion. The other day, creflo dollar, I've never been like an advocate of his, but he told his people now he appears on TBN as I do. He told his people to vote for Stacey Abrams. And I thought, wow. I can't I can't make any sense of this. This is as corrupt and pro abortion a politician as exists in America. And he told his people to vote first. So it's one thing to say nothing. A lot of people are foolishly advocating and saying, oh, you know, Christians shouldn't be political and Christian leaders shouldn't take political stand, which is garbage because if the issue where slavery, if the issue were sending Jews to death camps, I think we should get a little bit political, right? Well, I was just blown away by that, but you're telling me you think Abrams does not have a good chance in Georgia. She's trying to down the stretch. And this is what makes krupp's endorsement so weird. She's trying to use the abortion issue as her primary closing argument. And how, I mean, you'll remember the ludicrous things she said just weeks ago that a 6 week old baby doesn't have a heartbeat and that it's a manufactured sound for a device to help men take control of women's choices. You could line up 5000 o-b-gyns to come in and denounce her, many of whom would be women. But and she's not held accountable for that kind of crazy stuff. But let me give just a little bit of balance to what you just said. Because I think normally the cycle works very much in favor of the pastors that remain quiet in the pastors that feel like they can't take a position on things. There are a couple of issues in the mix here this year that pastors are concerned about and are speaking up about.

The Connection Between Baptism and Salvation

"And people literally. And now a lot of people agree with me, but some people literally just start making up stuff. Baptism is not part of your Salvation, and I said, well, look up John three three two 5. When Jesus went to nicodemus, said you must be born again in order to see our entry into the kingdom of God. Nicodemus said, to Jesus, well, can I enter into my mother's woman's second time? He said, no. It's a spiritual birth. It's not a natural birth. It's called being born again of the water and of the spirit. And there's people that literally got in my inbox and said, no, it's about baptism of the waters by being born birth. No, it's not. If you're pastors telling you that, you need to go and tell them to reread the Bible. If you look at the Greek word for baptism, baptismo mean immersion, water means it says hi door, which means water of the earth. That tells you right there is not water of the womb. And if it was water to womb, he wouldn't have told Nico demons that you were wrong for saying you can be rebirthed again from your mother's womb. And then Jesus goes on before he does his sermon before he begins his ministry. What happened to him? He got baptized by John the Baptist. In the spirit of God, fell on a descendant of him like a dove. Born of the water in the spirit. And people say it's not a part of yourself. They ain't got nothing to do with you. Go look at the Bible. When Jesus was resurrected, he told his apostles go you therefore teach our nation's baptizing them. If it's not important, why would he command them to baptize everybody they come in contact with?

"Now, in Georgia, Stacey Abrams is trailing Brian Kemp pretty considerably. Stacey Abrams knows why. This is pretty fascinating. Stacey Abrams sat down with Ali velshi on MSNBC over the weekend. And Ali velshi said, you're way behind in the polls to Brian Kemp, looks like you're going to lose. Why is that? Here's her answer. I do not believe it's because of a deep well of enthusiasm for my opponent. We know that black voters are often discounted and unfortunately this year black men have been a very targeted population for misinformation, not misinformation about what they want, but about why they want what they deserve. And my campaign has been the only one that has very intentionally thoughtfully and consistently reached out. That has been misconstrued as concern when it indeed is just respect. I got to hear that again, Yuri, I got to please play that one more time because that's classic. That's about that you talk about rich. Here's the question, hey, Stacey Abrams, why are you behind by almost double digits in some polls to Brian Kemp listen one more time once more for emphasis to Stacey Abrams response? I do not believe it's because of a deep well of enthusiasm for my opponent. We know that black voters are often discounted and unfortunately this year black men have been a very targeted population for misinformation, not misinformation about what they want, but about why they want what they deserve.

This gives you an example of exactly how the would be want to be Democrat governor of Georgia, Stacey Abrams feels about law enforcement. Men and women in law enforcement know who is going to be with them who has had their back and will continue to have their back. And that is me. And that's why we have the endorsement of a 107 shares around this state. As I pointed out before, I'm not a member of the good old boys club. So no, I don't have a 107 sheriffs who want to be able to take black people off the streets who want to be able to go without accountability.

"Everyone, Sean, coming out on a Sunday to tell you about Kara Swisher, Kara has been on today explain a number of times she's been a journalist for decades. Over the course of her career, she's garnered a reputation for being a tough interview, no nonsense and she's got quite the rolodex. I'm envious of her rolodex. She can book Elon and Mark at the drop of the hat. She does a lot of tech, but she can also get Barack and Hillary. She does a lot of politics, and that's what we're going to share with you today. We're bringing you an episode of Kara's new podcast. It's called on with Kara Swisher. It's from New York magazine and the vox media podcast network. This is a recent episode of the show in which Cara spoke with Georgia, gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, who's trying to win the state again in just a few weeks, my bet is you'll learn a lot from Kara's conversation with Stacy, and my bet is you seek out on with Kara Swisher, wherever you listen. Peace. Thank you for talking to me again. It's our fourth or 5th interview. And I want to start off with, I guess, the news, the recent polls have Brian up between two and 5 points. Why do you think you are so far behind right now? I'm not far behind. In 2018, the polls had me down. He was at 49. I was at 45.8. This is a polarized state with an electorate that is usually not included in polling. So let's use an example. 10% of the state's population is not white and not black. When you're looking at a polling size of 500, that means they're talking to maybe 5 or 6 people to extrapolate what's happening in one of the most diverse non black non white communities. And so these polls are snapshots. The question is, who are they taking a picture of? And what we know is that based on our internal polling based on what we saw happen with mind numbing regularity in 2018 is that the polls are going to look and they're going to see that in a state that is shifting both in terms of partisanship and in terms of demographic composition that I'm going to be behind by a bit. But what we do know is that my ability and my capacity to invest in turnout is what changed the game in 18. It's what won the game in 20 and 21. And we are going to continue to do that work because I see polls as a snapshot, not a predictor. Okay, so you're looking for that same Georgia miracle that you had sort of twice. You did have the same lineup for Georgia governor with the same opponent. You lost that race in 2018. He is now an incumbent. What is different now from your perspective when you're looking at the whole state as a candidate? In 2018, I lost that race by 54,723 votes since that time Georgia has added 1.6 million new voters. They are predominantly more likely to be people of color to be women to be younger. And that means there's the new voter pool that is modeled about 53% to be democratic. And so number one, they're more opportunities for victory. Number two, we have now been through COVID, we have seen the end of Trump, but we have also been through racial violence, women have lost their right to choose in Georgia. Marriage equality is under attack. The governor does not believe in it. And there is a Supreme Court that has signaled very strongly that the governor will be the deciding factor on most of those issues. And so it is a critical race where people are starting to understand if you want to protect your freedoms. The Supreme Court isn't going to do it. Congress can't do it. It's up to the governor. Okay. Well, how do you looking at it? It is a persuasion game or a get out the vote one. You talked sort of two different things there. Well, but we tend to in political parlance divide these communities where persuasion is about ideology and turnout is about activation. I have always focused on and what I'm being chastised for is that I recognize there's a third category. And that is persuasion to vote. There are communities that are automatically presumed to be voting simply because they look like the candidates. There is no conversation about Herschel Walker and his performance with black voters. There is a conversation about my performance with black voters. But here's the thing. My job isn't to persuade them not to vote for Brian Kemp. By and large, they will not. He will get a certain percentage because the certain percentage of every community is conservative. But my job is to persuade them that voting is worth their effort and worth their time. Because what you just asked me about what's different, the litany of troubles that I just listed, there are attacking black communities at disproportionate rates. They're attacking API communities. Latino communities, women. And so my responsibility is to persuade those communities that voting matters, that the exhaustion that has been about since 2016 that we've got to try one more time. Because this is not about persuading their ideological shift, it is about persuading a behavioral shift. But when we allied that issue when we allied that group, when we presume it's either activation or transformation, we ignore an entire population where our job is to persuade them that it's worth getting in the game again. So this weekend you actually were reaching across some areas that don't vote for you, I think, probably you were on Fox News Sunday mornings earlier this week. Talk about why you went. Are they persuadable to you from your perspective? And let me just say, Shannon bream did the interview by calling you Stacey Adams a few times. Which I found, I don't know what I found it. Pete Buttigieg did this a lot and had continued to do. So you think it's important to keep talking to this constituency? Absolutely. I win elections, not just for myself, but for others. And I've been working to help elect people in Georgia for years. And you win by building coalitions. If you only talk to the same people and you only talk about the same issues. Or you talk about the issues differently when you talk to someone else, then people grow in their distrust, but you also reduce the likelihood of expanding your coalition. So I tell the same story no matter where I am, whether I'm on Fox or MSNBC if you ask me a question about abortion, I'm going to give you the exact same answer. Whether I'm on the view or I'm on Charlemagne the God, I'm going to talk about issues in a way that people can access it can understand it, and if they decide they don't support me anyway, mazel tov, go with God. But you won't be able to say you didn't hear from me. Is there an advantage to facing the same opponent for a second time? Are you able to anticipate him better? I don't think it's about who he is. I think it's about what the Republican Party is. And what we know is he is emblematic of the Trumpist maga themes. He has done everything Donald Trump wanted. The only thing he didn't do was commit treason, but neither did any other governor. And so he is getting this cloak of mainstream niceties when he is as vicious and as callous and as aggressively opposed to our freedoms as any iteration of Donald Trump. In fact, he was Trump before Trump was. This is the man who said that he was going to round people up in his truck. He signed us his first major active legislation and anti abortion act that strips women of their right to choose before they know they're pregnant. If that is not the same type of a draconian and callous anti woman rhetoric we are hearing from other Republicans, I don't know what is.

"Once in a while, these guys reveal themselves. These people on the left reveal for themselves for exactly who they are. I don't know a thing about Stacey Abrams personal life. I know that she is become a very wealthy, almost one woman wrecking ball in the state of Georgia. The ultimate community organizer, making sure that people believe that Republicans want to prevent black people from voting. I guess she really believes that. She also believes your economic condition in life will be improved as long as you can abort your babies. I kid you not. I want you to hear what she said on MSNBC as the kids say we have the receipts if you're driving right now, I know things were at a point where nothing shocks us anymore, right? You can't be stunned anymore, but maybe this one, well, maybe this one is a little bit different. Here's Stacey Abrams, the Democrat gubernatorial candidate for governor in Georgia. But let's be clear, having children is why you're worried about your price for gas. It's why you're concerned about how much food costs. For women, this is not a reductive issue. You can't divorce being forced to carry an unwanted pregnancy from the economic realities of having a child. And so is that not unbelievable is that not the most amazing thing you've ever heard. Again, once in a while, they say the quiet part out loud. I'm not going to be inconvenienced by a child, I want to be able to get the car I want to get.

"Much or learn enough I should say about the 19th, 20th, 21st century and the rise of radical leftism. So now they have these rose colored glasses on when they look at the workforce numbers of, for example, the Soviet Union, or any of the other socialists and communist countries over the last handful of decades, and they say, look at how equal women were treated back then. It's like, yeah, the government just needed more people to force into the factories and perform basically forced labor. That's not very empowering. I don't care how equal the numbers are. It doesn't mean that there was any human dignity at all, and it certainly wasn't done to empower women, all right? They just were the government decided, you know what? We can't be treating women very special anymore. It's time to just bring them all down a peg. Make them all work in the factory, right? So I think it's pretty crazy that this, why women have better sex under socialism book literally makes the case for women being empowered more under socialist and communist countries and then has to actually add an asterisk in the book to say, PS, this was not done to empower women, but we're still looking at the numbers, and it looks good on paper. So I guess I kind of went on a little rant there. But it just always makes it so interesting to me to see even modern American women today talk about ending their lineage and ending the life of a child that could be born and raised up in their care all because of financial reasons. That makes me really, really sad. It's like we forgot what really matters. I mean, if you look at it at the most basic level, we've forgotten what really matters in life. Why do we even go to work? Why do we even try to earn money? It's to pay for things, right? It's to pay for a roof over our head. It's to pay to live and to pay off all of our expenses that we have to get by and to do the things that we love and to do the necessities as well. But what does it all for if it's not to extend and add to our lives in ways that are beyond material reasons? I don't know. It's just really sad. We're so short sighted with how well we could earn a lot more money and we could be in a much better financial place if we didn't have children. It reminds me of, I've got to find it. I just saved it on Instagram, but remember David hogg that teenager from the Florida shooting that now is like a progressive activist. He tweeted something, not about guns or anything. But he tweeted recently on September 19th. He said, I'm never planning on having kids. I would much rather own a Porsche and have a Portuguese water dog and golden doodle. Long-term it's cheaper, better for the environment and will never tell you that it hates you or ask you to pay for college. It just makes me really sad. I mean, I look at this and to be honest, I'm not interested in now trying to convince David hogg to want children. I'm not interested in trying to change his world perspective, right?

"I want to talk about the ingenuity, the kind of diabolical ingenuity of Stacey Abrams. Now, you know who Stacey Abrams is. She is the woman who has who lost the last Georgia gubernatorial election to Brian Kemp. She lost by 50,000 votes, but she said she didn't lose. In fact, she refused to concede, even when she did concede, it was kind of a non concession speech. So she appears to think that she is the governor. And now that Brian Kemp has won the Republican nomination in 2022, you have a rematch between Brian Kemp and Stacey Abrams, Paul so far seemed to have Brian Kemp pretty comfortably ahead. But I want to talk really about how Stacey Abrams deals with these kinds of situations, and she deals with them really by trying to rewrite the rules of the game. Now, Stacey Abrams is one of those characters who makes a brief appearance, although her role is not all that brief. In 2000 mules. If I remember she was mentioned, what was the honey? Just once, right? I think in the movie, where the police officer, who has been hired by the Senate Republican committee to watch that he mentions her and he talks about the Stacey Abrams people who are right there and the throes of the voting. Well, there's some interesting reporting. It's come from multiple sources, so there's no reason to doubt it. It's in Fox business, it's some CBS News. It's an NPR. And Stacey Abrams has a new scheme. Which goes beyond mules. And arguably, you need new schemes, the mules don't work if you don't have drop boxes anymore, or if the Zuckerberg money is now torpedoed or if people are watching the Dropbox as you gotta be creative. And Stacey Abrams is nothing if not creative. And look, I don't want to, I don't want to exaggerate the creativity because when you have the media on your side, you can do these schemes and you never get called to account for them. So the scheme here is, well, I'm just going to read the headline. Stacey Abrams group donates $1.34 million to help wipe out medical debt in 5 states. Wow. Seems like a pretty generous move by Stacey Abrams. The group is called fair fight action. It's donated just over a $1 million. And I mean it seemed like a $1 million is not enough to wipe out a whole medical debt can actually add up. But it turns out when people can't pay, you can often cut a deal with the companies to who the debt is owed. And so you can wipe out pretty large amounts of debt by paying a small fraction of the amount actually owed. It's kind of like a settlement. You can even do this in a different way with the IRS, the IRA you owe money the IRS, you owe them $10,000 or $50,000, but you don't have the 50,000 of the IRS because well, listen, give us $3000 and we'll kind of move on. They take what they can get. And so Stacey Abrams is able to retire a large amount of debt. In fact, the original debt was $200 million, $212 million, and she's able to pay it off using just 1.3 million. Now, to listen to Stacey Abrams, this is all very benign. She says, quote, I know firsthand a medical cost and a broken healthcare system put families further in debt. She goes the problem is exacerbated in states where failed leaders of callously refused to expand Medicaid even during a pandemic. Now, when I heard this, I thought when you're dealing with Democrats and whenever compassion and the philanthropic rhetoric goes, you always have to look a little one step deeper. And so I thought to myself, she's doing this, she's not doing it all over the country. You might expect her to do it just in Georgia or if she's not doing in Georgia, do it like everywhere. But no, she's doing it in 5 states. And so the question then becomes, which are the 5 states. Well, here they are. Georgia. Okay, no surprise. Arizona. Interesting. Louisiana. Mississippi. And Alabama. So these are, yep, southern states, but you happen to notice that two of them are critical states. Georgia and Arizona there, you can call them battleground states, swing states, and so what seems to be going on here, the purchase forgives the debt of nearly 69,000 people in Georgia, more than 27,000 people in Arizona. About 8000 people in Louisiana and then just a smaller number, like 2000 people in Mississippi and Alabama. And. Stacey Abrams pack is very well endowed. It's got a $100 million kind of battle chess. So it's able to use this money and what's going on here. Well, I think what's going on here is nothing more than vote buying. Basically what Stacey Abrams is saying is, hey, listen, you got medical debt. I'll pay it off. Your politically obliged to me. And Debbie goes, this is the chubby model. This is what this is really what socialist governments do. They create dependency. They expect gratitude. And the way that you quote pay them back is not through money, but by essentially turning your ballot over to them. Either voluntarily or just physically. It goes my ballot. You fill it out. So what you have here is the Democrats using their, you may call it diabolical creativity. To try to make sure that elections in the future go their way. My pillow is having the biggest sheet sale of the year, the per kale sheets are available in a variety of colors and sizes. They're all on sale.

They turn around, they take this photo, and you see all these poor little kids, you know, I'm not going to show the photo because they're kids, they're kids, right? Like just the fact that she took the photo with the kids. I hope that there was parental consent, right? 'cause it's a public school. Anyway, so she takes the photo with the kids, they've all got masks. Every single one of them. The only one that doesn't is Stacey Abrams. Music. Mass for thee. But not for me. I mean, once again, we see an example of the left preaching whatever they want to preach, and yet when it comes to themselves, it doesn't matter. There's a sense that there's royalty, right?

Well, it's created this whole problem because apparently her social media campaign person well, we don't know if she's really campaign. We think she's campaigning. She's putting together a staff. Person actually tweeted out the picture. Or retweeted the picture that the principal took. It's like, wow, I mean, you just announced to the world. How stupid all this is, right? She's the only one without the mask in these poor little kids. They all have to wear their masks. It's so beyond hypocritical at this point. I just wanted to flag that for you guys. Because I know you just love Stacey Abrams, right? Apparently. According to her website, she's looking for a new social media manager. Because that might kind of cost you your job. I don't know. I mean, I actually think that these people think it's actually okay. She should be apologizing from here to Sunday. Good luck.

"To hack the system and change the outcome. Yes they may. Not the thing that i think so many people just so admire about you mean clearly. You are wildly ambitious. But you've never lost sight of your surroundings and the people that you have been trying to lift up as well and that has been so appreciated that we should have aggressive and wild ambitions that are only anchored by fans not by doubts. And it's women. I think many of us have been taught temper our ambitions. So why do you recommend. Women have aggressive and wild ambitions into the women listening today. What would you say to encourage them to express or make those wild ambitions materialize over. My shoulder is poster for a documentary that i produced all in the fight for democracy and mentioned it for two reasons number one fighting for democracy being willing to tackle systems that have been in place literally since the inception of our nation is wild and in some ways. Absurd that in georgia. A young black woman is going to tackle this system and try to make it work better but that was my wild and ambitious dream but was also grounded in the plan knowing that litigation was a part of it knowing that we need to fix it legislation knowing that we need to build advocacy using my skills grown over years of building organizations hiring people who were smart thoughtful and capable of greatness being willing to raise money in order to fund those dreams but beginning with this very ambitious belief that i was going to stop voter suppression in jordan. We actually by august of nineteen decided. We're going to twenty states so that's one piece of it but this poster also represents one of the secret dreams i have. I am a geek. But i also am well known for my love of media. I love television film books. Music immersed myself in the arts. And i had ambitious idea that i could produce the documentary to tell the story of voter suppression because people need to understand. This isn't a singularity my campaign. What we faced was certainly deeply problematic but it was repeated in places across this country in smaller fashion. And maybe not with a saying click lights. But what. I wanted people to see and understand. Was that this could be done. And so i produced a documentary. And now we're out there in the ether in. I've met filmmakers. And i was able to clot out how i could be a part of vets and so regardless of the scope of the ambition and regardless of whether it seems to be so personal as to be small or simple massive s to be unattainable our responsibilities to dream it anyway to desire it anyway because you may not get what you want but you will get something so much better than you have one because you tried and to because more likely you'll succeed sometimes we're not afraid of our ambition and when it's not like we're frayed of we're afraid of success not about being afraid of success is being afraid of responsibility that comes with success the response moldy the comes of failure but the only responsibility you have is to understand why you succeeded in multiply orange. Dan why you didn't succeed and soul for it. But we can't let our ambitions be edited by our own figures. I like to say take out for a drink. Gets no it really. Well make it your friend because fear makes you break and fear makes you. Brave bravery makes you ambitious. An ambition makes us better. And that's how we start to create change. I love the well.

"I'm now joined by the organizing legend to help turn georgia blue. After nearly two decades of republican wins in her spare time. Sheraton her ninth novel. The number one new york times bestseller while justice sleeps stacey. Abrams welcome back to the pot. Thank you for having so we were just talking about the coordinated republican attack on voting rights. I'll be honest. I'm sort of at a loss right now about what to do. Joe mansion and cursing cinema have ruled out. Getting rid of the filibuster mansion has said no on a filibuster carve out for voting rights. Which is what you've suggested. And even if there were no filibuster he said he doesn't actually support Before the people act as written which we can't pass without him. So how do we protect the right to vote. I begin with the posture that people take positions based on the current environment. And that the more we see evidence of perfectly and malfeasance. The more likely are to see change. I believe that. A former secretary of state that joe manchin understands how fragile democracy actually is without the rule of law to protect the most vulnerable voters and his ethos which is to say that he wants to protect. The voice of minorities in the senate should extend to protecting the voice of minorities as american citizens. Part of what we're seeing play out here is shifting the narrative from one of this democrats versus republicans to one of this being republicans versus americans. This is not partisanship. This is about citizenship. And the more we can amplify and populate with evidence the proof of their intention. I think the more likely we are to actually see a shift in behavior. I can't say that for certain. But i know that giving my time in the state legislature there were moments where i was absolutely certain or at least certainly i should have been convinced that no movement was possible but i thought happen now that notwithstanding we still have to fight we need to get to the place where we can get people on board and that means really articulating. The critical provisions of the for the people act which are essential. That may mean that. We can't have everything we want in the for. The people act but we must have enough to preserve access to the ballot. And i think what we saw happen in texas. What happens in georgia. What happened in florida. We haven't zona what's about to happen in ohio. What happened in oklahoma and in kansas and in iowa signal that this is not a limited issue. This is not a southern issue. This is not a black issue is a citizenship. Democracy issue and it is a continuation of the insurrection. And i know that. Senator manchin and senator cinema have both signalled that they believed that the insurrection was wrong and thus we should be holding them accountable and providing the evidence necessary to demonstrate that if you disagreed with the attempt to dismantle our democracy on january six. You should disagree with this coordinated attack on our democracy at the state level. Have you had any conversations with mansion or cinema about this topic. What do you think you might. I hope so. But part of my responsibility is to make certain that we as a nation or speaking with one voice about this issue that we move this beyond conversation of what happened in november twenty twenty two conversation of what is going to happen to us in twenty thirty if were twenty twenty two or twenty twenty four. If we do not address this triple assault on our democracy. You mentioned making sure that the final bill had the most critical provisions of of hr one of the for the people. What do you think are like the. We can't live without provision in that bill. So i would start with what's happening at the state level to signal so there are three pieces. One is the anti voter provisions that are sweeping our country and that means that we have to protect voters in the right to access the right to register the right to stay on the rolls their right to cast a ballot and the right to have those ballots counted so he registered steak cast. Can you count that means. We have to have automatic voter registration. Same day registration. We have to have in person early voting no matter where you live Because we no longer living in the economy wherever everyone can take off tuesday in november to go boat and we to have no excuses absentee balloting because the republican intent is to limit voting to a single day unless you are infirm. Disabled elderly or in military though should not be only exceptions. We make a system that was put in place long before our economy evolved before a nation of all so we have to push back against the anti voter provision second wave of attack against election workers themselves. And we're seeing this play out in response to the horrific lies told about election workers in michigan and georgia and in arizona and a number of these laws are weakening their protections increasing their liability and putting them in harm's way by allowing more poll-watchers meaning poll intimidators to come in and question their work without evidence or without knowledge and then the third attack tapping is that we are watching subversion of american democracy by allowing legislators people in power to overturn the outcome of elections. I mean in texas the bill. That was stopped briefly. Unfortunately it will come back in special session said that you could try to overturn an election without proof of fraud. Which means that you just don't if you just don't like the outcome and they're gonna be those who push say that's not what it says exactly. I'm good lawyer and it's so much what they've done in georgia win. Laws are this porous and poorly written and this hidden from investigation. You know that the intention is to allow the unspoken to become the rule and when we can have our elections overturned by the actions of others. That is deeply problematic right now before. The people addresses the anti-voting provision their conversations about adding were protections in for election workers in the subversion of democracy. But those are the three pieces that we're going to absolutely have to move if we want to see sound elections heading fort. I'm really interested in that. Last part. Because i know a lot of people have pointed out that the current version of the people act doesn't include enough protections around election subversion. Have you heard of legislative proposals anywhere. That would address that whether it's a state legislature overturned in the election whether it's the house of representatives whether it's a county board secretary of state's office obviously republicans are trying to plant trumpy people in all of these offices. But how do we prevent against that. What what can we do to prevent election subversion. So they're not only trying to plant people in their actually trying to strip people with power what they did to secure state katie. Hobbs and we've seen vestiges of this. When republicans won recent elections. Go they go in and strip the constitutional officers of power. That have you. People have enjoyed for or these offices have held for decades not centuries so what we know is that this is a new. This is a new phenomenon. And so i don't think legislation has been introduced but i have great faith Deflation will soon follow. Because we're just now seeing this play out now we've been warning about it for a while but now that we actually see it happening when the new Heritage action for america acknowledges their attention..

"But what should we be so scary to your point. John is that he has banned from social media. Other than a handful of like phone calls with maria bartiromo. He is absent for media yet. His power and control of the republican party is stronger than it was before which suggests that he is not the leader of the movement. He just a vessel for a very powerful movement exists and will persist after. He's gone and i do think that should force everyone to recognize that. What we're dealing with here is not about. Trump is a structural problem with an american politics. That trump benefited from he didn't create well. I also think that it's evidence that they're more evidence that there is a sort of closed right wing information ecosystem that donald trump both benefited from and helped build as well. And ben. you talk about this in the book to that. Like some of these autocrats. It's not that they just went over and took control of the of the media on their own and said that. Everything's going to be state run media. Some of what they did was similar to how the conservative media infrastructure has been built here in the united states. It's like a little more gradual than you might think. Putin really perfected this playbook and it started with his cronies buying up. Tv stations in the like. But it really didn't tip into this more dangerous virulent control that he has a society there until he realized how much you could just flood social media and manipulate the algorithm. I mean this is intentional. People know that they can kind of turbocharger narratives and conspiracy theories remember talking to to navalny we before tragically. He was poisoned and then imprisoned over the course of last summer and he was explained to me like how how comprehensive this was in that. Yes there of course trolls that were making him out to be a criminal and making him out to be an enemy of the russian people but there was also a huge conspiracy theory that actually no vanni was a double agent and he was working for the fsb the russian intelligence outlet and and this enraged on the because one of the things that they would argue in this conspiracy theories welfare is really an opponent of putin's he'd be dead by now. Nevada is like hey guys like i'm still alive. Does that mean. I'm double agent but it speaks to the fact that these these are in part the algorithms prioritizing sensationalism but this is by design. I don't think that's a conspiracy theory here. I think if you look at cunanan clearly. There's an effort to kind of turbo charge. A conspiracy theory and shaping the minds of unwitting people consuming that information. And that's why. I do think this is the kind of thing that requires a policy response just sitting back and hoping that facebook solves us because they've got a pr problem is clearly not sufficient so some republicans aren't quite ready to call for a military coup fucking reina's. They're trying to win the next election the old fashioned way by making it harder for democrats to vote that's happening in texas where the republicans voter suppression legislation was temporarily stopped this week when democrats in the state house walked out of the chamber which denied republicans. A corum and prevented a vote on the bill governor greg. Abbott responded by threatening to cut the entire legislatures funding and he said that will call a special session to revive the bill but democrat said that they hope. The episode serves as a wake-up call to their colleagues in washington to pass the four. The people act. Here's what state representative trey martinez fischer had to say to joe. Manchin down here in texas. We'd say when times get tough. It's time to cowboy up in so with all due respect that s senator mansion please cowboy up. President biden also had a message for both mansion and kirstin cinema during his remarks to commemorate the hundredth anniversary of the tulsa massacre. Though his dig was a bit more subtle. I hear all the folks on tv saying why didn't biden get this done. Well because biden has a majority of effectively four votes in the house and i and the senate with two members of the senate who vote more republican for us so the president also said that he's putting vice president kamala harris in charge of voting rights. And that he'll quote fight like heck to ensure the passage of the for the people. Act a question. Dan will any of this. Make a difference of joe manchin kirstin cinema or any of the other Filibuster loving democratic senators. Who are hiding behind joe manchin and carson cinema. Say their names. john. I don't know the changes with every story. Jeanne shaheen upset and john testers not sure then the two democratic senators from delaware. That you're eventually gonna run against their out there. We're not sure about both of them. Run against both inside and run against. He's gonna take both seats. Because that's just how much i love the senate and where and delaware i do a lump delaware off. We don't know right. I was very pleased to hear biden. Talk about this and say he's gonna fight like heck for it i was. I'm glad that he has put comma harris in charge. It's we know from our time there that it's always better when there was one person in charge of a big project because vice president biden. Did this a bunch rama whether it was on gun safety after newtown the recovery act iraq policy In first term because they can bring to bear the entire office on this project and it becomes a top priority which sometimes it's hard in the day-to-day crisis management that the president must deal with so. That's very good. I don't know whether it's going to make a difference. It may just be that. Joe manchin curzon cinema and the unnamed others would prefer to preserve the filibuster than save democracy and that nothing will change their mind. But we don't know that and that is why we were. We're on the clock. now we have Senator schumer said they're going to bring up the for. The people act as one in june. And i think all of us particularly joe biden. Kamala harris chuck schumer to make it as uncomfortable as fucking possible for the people who may stand in the way of this right like if you your decision is that the filibuster is so important as curzon cinema. So annoyingly said standing in texas the Basically ground zero for democracy. Rigging right now said extol the virtues filibuster if they think that is so important than they should they should feel pain. That political pain for doing that right. It should be uncomfortable when they go home to their their states and the district should be comfortable when they turn on their tv to all the other democratic senators out there. It should be uncomfortable in the lunch line at the senate. You see joe. Manchin cinema talk to him about this. Put pressure on it because i do think that this is one of those times in history that people will remember for decades when they look back on this time. I don't as i wish people thought it was the american rescue plan. I think maybe they'll think it's information to me. But i think it'll be what what we did. At this moment to protect our democracy because now biden talks about how he wants to be like an fdr style president whereas you we have this crisis..

"Is a trilogy that is about a cast diverse cast of characters who worked for an espionage organization in the us government. Now a highlight that part of it. Because stacey abrams told seth meyers maybe a year ago or so talking about her books that she writes characters that have jobs that she would have if she wasn't doing. she's currently. So maybe i'm implying stacey. Abrams hurricane spy because she couldn't spell it out anymore. You've got to pin name. You're talking about yeah. I write spike here just because i want to be a spy in another life. Maybe you are a spy. That's amazing that you would say that. Because it really reminds me of the anderson cooper thing where his only job was with the cia and he went to yell and yell. And i'm gonna i have her. Cv handier curriculum vitae. I wanna tell you few highlights which support your theory. Which i had never really thought of before but a minority because i bought a selena montgomery novel awhile back when we were covering stacy's run for governor and the one i got was the preacher's daughter having steamy romance. I don't know. I really could not read it. I just couldn't. It wasn't so bad. I just have no tolerance for just a gratuitous nothingness relationship stuff sacks. I can't. I can't waste my time so reading about other people doing things that aren't plot oriented about stacy abors sitting around imagining. All of these things is what. I'm thinking that it's supposed to be her. Yeah i don't think that. I don't care about that but but i would have really been able to get my mind around a spy one. If it was good enough. I wouldn't care the occasional gratuitous sex scene but during whoa also is it characters. Yeah it's all year. Those were written twenty years ago. She i'll tell you about the new in chess coming out after. Ti can probably tolerate. It's like my example of quiet american. It's pure propaganda and found out later is actually written by six guy but it was so well written that i didn't care you know i don't i don't care nowadays..

"He protected the governor. He was a state trooper and he felt it was in his power to diminish me and while he did have the effective erasing. What could have been wonderful memory for me. He didn't have the power to stop me from being valedictorian. And the humiliation of that moment didn't have the power to stop me from becoming who i would be. I think the second is that you learned to dream bigger. When you've got more time in more space you got time to just think about stuff you never imagined. I'd never met a lawyer growing up. I'd never met a politician you other than my parents. I knew very few people who gone to college or graduate school. Until i was fifteen and yet i ended up going to college to grad school to law school. I had never met an entrepreneur. I didn't know what that was until i was in college. And so part of what you can learn is that you can dream beyond the things you know because i read about them. I've found other examples that were outside of my daily life but within the scope of my imagination. I'm assuming you hadn't well. You had met a governor at that point. Yes we did the governor and so just remind us if you wouldn't mind what happened in the race for governor just a couple of years ago now so i. I had to really interesting parts of my race for governor. I had a primary and my opponent also had the name of stacy. We spelled the same way. The distinction was our race and for so many people. That was the only difference. They could tell they actually called us. The stacy's something that would never happen with men and so my first campaign for governor..

"Visit the governor's mansion which is in buckhead really ritzy part of atlanta. We had to take the bus. My parents and i get off the bus. We walk across the street and as these cars arrived driving and kids from all over the state. We're sort of walking up the side of the driveway staying out of the cars and we get to the guard gate. The guard looks at me. It looks at my parents. He looks at the bus. That's pulling away. And he tells us we don't belong here he assumed we were. i guess. Visitors coming to view. The governor's mansion as tourists and my dad says no. No this is my daughter. Stacy she's one of the valedictorians but the guard didn't look at the list that he had he didn't accept the invitation. My mom had in her purse. He just kind of sneered at us and he said look. I told you don't belong here. luckily for me and unluckily for him. My parents are very insistent about our treatment in public spaces so Although my parents were injured we moved here because they were in training to become pastors. They were less than religious that day. My father was very insistent that the man list and let me in. But i don't really remember the event itself we got inside. I don't remember the event. I don't remember meeting the governor. I just remember this guy. This powerful guy standing in front of a guard gate in front of the governor's mansion telling me i don't belong there. I mean on the one hand that's incredibly sad and shameful that you don't actually remember the event itself you don't remember celebrating your incredible achievements on the other hand knowing who you are now. A lawyer prominent politician first african american woman to ever become the nominee for governor in the history of the us for a major party. You know you can't help but think that awful moment actually informed who you are impacted your life. That's absolutely true. It became part of the narrative. When i was running for governor in part because i needed people to understand that i understand that i wasn't raised with this notion that i could ever aspire to being governor of state. Let alone being the first black woman to do this. I never thought of myself necessarily as a change agent in that way but there is something very galling but also very motivating about some stranger telling you who you are and what you mean. When i ran for governor for me it was about saying look. I was told longtime ago. I didn't belong in this. And i've spent my life whether intentionally or not proving him wrong but it wasn't about him it wasn't about what he saw or didn't see me. It was about who i am. And who i intend to be and this is my state. This is my country. And i belong here as much as anybody else by wonder if you think in some ways there you were this amazing studen- clearly you learned a lot at school but in the flash of a moment in your life you learned something perhaps just as impactful things one is. That humiliation isn't permanent..

"stacey abrams" Discussed on WNYC 93.9 FM

"The U. S. Senate at a time where the country has grown increasingly polarized. Joining me to discuss the state's changing electorate, and what that means for the future of statewide races is Andhra Gillespie, an associate professor of political science at Emory University. You know what's changed in the state was that in the 2000, we see a growth in the African American electorate, eh, so that by the time we're getting to the 22,008 in the 2012 elections, blacks make up about 30% of registered voters in the state. And then since 2012 we have seen the Asian, American and Hispanic electorate grow, so it's doubled since 2012 until while it's still a small part of Georgia's electorate. It's growing fast enough that along with African American voters and liberal Democratic voters, who are white, um Democrats are in a position to be competitive Now. The numbers alone aren't what you know has made Georgia vote Democratic in this particular election. There's been a lot of political organizing behind the scenes to tap into latent Democratic voters to get them registered to vote. Get them educated about the process to get them mobilized that really paid off in this particular election. So you know it Zim part the multi racial coalition which I think distinguishes Georgia from other parts of the Deep South. But it's also just this idea of mobilization and organization and the Democratic Party of 10 years ago in Georgia wasn't equipped to do that. But the new Democratic Party largely led by the efforts of Stacey Abrams is in a much better position to be competitive. I don't think that Democrats are, you know, now going to win every election going forward. I think we're headed into a period of contest station or we're gonna have close election outcomes where Democrats win and sometimes lose elections, But Georgia you know is decidedly now a swing state. Let's talk about that dig into you. The point you made about Stacey Abrams and her success. Not just in 2018 and in really engaging African American voters and voters of color, But the work that's been done on the ground now for years in Finding, registering and now turning out voters of color. What happens now? In an era post trump in an era where you're right. We kind of maybe go back to quote unquote normal elections. Some people are going to wonder whether or not this moment where Donald Trump has been on the ballot orbit of an outlier. So if races have become more competitive in the Trump era because of how divisive Donald Trump is On. Did you know I have two answers to that question? I mean, one. We are going to pay attention to what Subsequent election outcomes look like to see what Post Trump voting behavior looks like. But I also think it's really important to point out that these efforts at party building that Stacey Abrams on and other groups that were, you know, mostly just interested in making sure that people color turned out to vote. So the Georgia Coalition for the People's Agenda Black Voters matter, etcetera. Right. These folks have been on the ground, and they were working long before Donald Trump descended that escalator and 2015 and so and the projections and the aspirations of the Democratic Party of Georgia had predate the emergence of of Donald Trump as a national political figure. So you know, and then narrowing of elections started before Donald.
