Seats House seats what's at stake in terms of some of the ballot options in the presidential candidates and some general thoughts about the political climate here in New York. All right. Well, let's bring on our guest today were very happy to welcome back to the show Jay. Jacobs, he's the chair of the New York State. Democratic. Committee, which means he's basically helps run the political operation of the New York Democratic Party. Chair Jacobs, thanks for joining us. This is Ben Max from Gotham Gazette Jerry Earth from city limits. While thanks for having me. Tell. Tell us tell listeners just a little bit about how you describe your role in a big election year like is happening right now what what do you try to do? What's what are the main sorta responsibilities that you see yourself? Well, I'm trying to raise money to get the resources to the various candidates. You know. Once our candidates are selected, which is a big part of what the Party does. Then you know you're filling in and helping out each of the individual campaigns and and directing campaign resources to you know the the most effective. Use. The meaning that of course, candidates that are in the tightest races most competitive races where the extra is going to make a difference. Well, that's where you're going to try to get your your money. So I'm trying to do that as well as coordinate get out the vote efforts. Monitoring the early vote for instance right now, making sure that things are going smoothly with the boards of elections around the state and that people are getting their opportunity to vote and our vote is coming out. So those are generally things that I'm involved with. Jay have both those changed light of the pandemic. I mean we can imagine it affecting get-out-the-vote efforts. I'd be curious to know more exactly how but has the pandemic with economic fallout affected fundraising. I'll sure definitely you know people who used to give a lot more some of them. Their businesses have been affected and the they've been a little bit more conservative with their their contributions. But we we've been seeing a steady flow of. Dollars into the campaign and I think that you know. The pandemic has made all of the opportunities we used to have to get out and reach voters whether it was knocking on their doors or you know standing in front of subway stations, giving out materials or on the Long Island railroad platforms whatever it may be. All of those things just a much more difficult to just not happening. So everything is being done by by phone text zoom calls. You know one thing I will say that's good about the pandemic, and this is the only thing I can think of is that I get to go everywhere I was in her. Camera County. Last. Week I was up in Erie County. Yesterday no traffic no problem. I get on Zoom I'm I'm sitting here doing it from my house and. Everybody gets to see and hear what I have to say and I get to see and hear what they have to say and that's easier. But it's certainly not as effective. You'd I I I'm I still like the old fashioned handshaking look them in the I talked to the face to face. We can't do any of that right now. Just. A quick follow up on that Jay is is their unilateral disarmament on that in other words are democratic and Republican candidates and campaigns respecting social distancing being careful about in person campaigning to the same degree or are you yielding some territory on that? Well I I don't see much of it from the Republicans either but there is some There's some candidates Somerville look inside that are knocking doors more than we are not to say that no, Democrats are but very few I honestly I don't think in this environment. That's what voters are clamoring for right now and they don't know that it's going to make that much of a difference. So you know we're we're we might be seeing a little bit of territory on this. We're a little bit more I'd say responsible then than my counterparts on the other side I just I don't think that's GonNa that's GonNa make the difference in this kind of an election at this time. and. So J when it comes to the many races on the ballot year we were talking the first segment of the, you know the show about you know some what's at stake with the State Senate in the House races in New York? Where are you most focused on? Are you most focused right now on trying to keep sir? House seats democratic. Are you most focus dining keeping expanding the state senate democratic majorities something else where's where's most of your attention right now? I think that most of my attention I'd have to say would be in the state Senate races. Now, we've got three congressional seats Democratic Congressional seats which. You know are are competitive and we have to defend You've got. Anthony. Brindisi up the twenty second congressional. Tonio Delgado in the Nineteenth Cup in the Hudson Valley area. Then you've got Max rose right down here in the city he staten island and a piece of. Western Brooklyn and that's I would say the most competitive that's a toss up race. That's the only one that I would say we would have some vulnerability. I believe Metro is going to win at the end of the day but you know he's he's in the fight of his life right now and and and I would say that that's where I've got a concern on the other end. Of course, we're looking at two potential three potential pickups There may be others frankly so I don't want to sell anybody short but the ones that stand out at the moment. Are Jackie Gordon who's running in the old Peter King seat. He's vacating the seat and you've got this fella guerrino. WHO's I. Don't think picking up any steam at all Jackie Gordon's A. Combat veteran twenty, nine year veteran. She's a very attractive candidate and I think she stands a very good chance of winning that. So that's our best shot and he got Nancy Gore off out on the east end battling a lease Zeldin who's a reels trump zealot. So you know we've got some potential layered nancy gross than a great job and Dana Baltar. Running. Once again up and CD twenty four against Jon Capco. So you know I I think she came very close in in eighteen and I think she may take him out this time. So those those are the the congressional on the State Senate side. We've got a lot going on the Republicans are targeting particularly incumbents. on Long Island. So they've targeted three different a long island incumbants with all sorts of really harsh false ads that you know are making an impact. So we've got her hands full trying to make sure we save Monica Martin was in CDs SD three out in Suffolk County Then you've got the Jim Gordon and SD five. on on the north shore of both NASA, aunts and Suffolk and Kevin. Thomas, who I think is the most vulnerable and he's an St.
The Supreme Court Allows More Time For Pennsylvania's Mail In Voting
"The Supreme Court allows extra time for Pennsylvania's mail in ballots by Marc Sherman and Mark Levy. Washington. The Supreme Court will allow Pennsylvania to count mailed in ballots received up to three days after the November third election rejecting a Republican plea in the presidential battleground state. The justices divided four four on Monday an outcome that upholds a state Supreme Court ruling that required county election officials to receive and count mailed in ballots that arrive up until November sixth. Even if they don't have a clear postmark as long as there is not proof it was mailed after the polls closed Republicans including President Donald Trump's campaign have opposed such an extension arguing that it violates federal law that sets Election Day as the first Tuesday after the first Monday in November and that such a decision constitutionally belongs to lawmakers not the courts. The State Republican Party Chairman Lawrence Tavis said the party disagrees with the decision and noting the four four decision. It only underscores the importance of having a full supreme court as soon as possible to be clear. The Supreme Court decided not to grant stay which does not mean the actions of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court would withstand a legal challenge to their judicial overreach. Should the court hear the case tape said? Nancy Patty. Mills Chairwoman of the Pennsylvania Democratic Party accused Republicans of trying to sow confusion and disenfranchise eligible voters. This is a significant victory for Pennsylvania voters. Mills said in a statement, the Democratic majority on the state's High Court had cited warnings that postal service delays could invalidate numbers of ballots and surging demand for mail-in ballots during the coronavirus pandemic to invoke the power used previously by the state's courts to extend election deadlines during a disaster. Chief Justice John Roberts joined with the three liberal justices to reject Pennsylvania Republicans call for the court to block the State Court ruling. Justices Samuel Alito Neal Gorsuch Brett. Cavanaugh and Clarence Thomas would have required the state to stop accepting absentee ballots when the polls close on November third. There were no opinions accompanying the order. So it is impossible to say what motivated either group of justices the conservative justices have been reluctant to allow court quarter changes to voting rules close to an election. The court also is weighing a similar issue from Wisconsin but in that case, the ruling being challenged comes from a federal appeals court and the Democrats who are asking the justices to step in. Most states make election day the deadline, but eighteen states half of which backed trump the twenty sixteen election have a post election day deadline with nearly a million votes already cast in Pennsylvania, we support the court's decision not to meddle in our already working system Pennsylvania's Attorney General Democrat Josh Shapiro said in a statement. On, a separate track Republicans in the State House have pressed Governor Tom Wolfe a Democrat to agree to eleventh-hour legislation to eliminate or limit the three days under the court's order. The case is one of many partisan battles being fought in the state legislature and the courts primarily over a male in voting. In Pennsylvania amid concerns that a presidential election result will hang in limbo for days on a drawn out vote count in the battleground state. And Pennsylvania the State Democratic Party and a liberal group the Pennsylvania Alliance for retired Americans had salt an extension of the election day deadline to count mailed ballots. About two point eight, million mail in ballots requested and approximately nine hundred thousand returned democratic registered voters are requesting mail ballots at a nearly three to one ratio over Republicans, and it's September seventeenth ruling the divided state Supreme Court said ballots must be postmarked by the time polls close and be received by county election boards at five pm on November six, three days after the November third election it also said that ballots lacking clear postmark could be counted unless there was evidence that they were mailed after the polls closed.
Why some dems dislike Reid Hoffman
"Might, be here at recode centers on tech billionaires who they are, what drives them, and what exactly they spend their fortunes on. And these days one answer to that last question is politics. So I, try and chart the gusher of billionaire money flowing. Into American. Elections. Often in secret. Joining me on the show today here is my editor at recode, Sam, open hey sam hey teddy. So last week, we published a story from you about one of these billionaires read men, the founder of Lincoln Board member of Microsoft, a major democratic political donor. So I think this conversation is a chance for us to talk about why out of the many people in Silicon Valley could be covering why did we focus on hosman? He's not really a household name the way that Mark Zuckerberg are Jeff Bezos are let's talk about what makes him an interesting character in Silicon Valley. Yeah I mean he someone who? Has. A ton of. Money. But more. So is one of these people who sees himself as a quote unquote thought? Leader Right. He sort of coins terms that are used in startup land. He has a podcast which has tons of listeners and he's basically sort of cultivated this image as one of the good guys of silicon. Valley. And in the last four years, he's taken his billions of dollars net worth and decided that he wants to become the tip of the spear of Silicon, Valley's to oust trump and he's doing exactly that Nacho spending his own money but sort of serving as a port of call for all Silicon Valley so that's why we thought focused on Reid Hoffman. As a way to talk about the bigger story, which is the politicization and the new partisan ethos that has taken over tech over the last four years. One of the things that we talk about early in the story as we talk about his donor table and I think that gets at this idea that. He's Gathering his fellow billionaires to take action as well. So can you tell us a little bit more about the donor table and how it works and this big money machine? He's created for Democrat politics in. Silicon. Valley sure. So Hoffman is not just putting his own considerable net worth into this. A lot of the secret sauce of political fundraising that happens you know oftentimes in the dark at private meetings is the art of getting other rich people to do the same thing. As you to create leverage. This is someone who started linked in all about creating social networks to drive professional change and stuff like that. So Hoffman has basically created this donor table, which is a fancy way of saying a bunch of his rich friends getting together to fund the same stuff. So Hoffman has some political help and there are people who are other billionaires who maybe don't have fulltime political help who turned Hoffman they say, Hey, read what are you funding? Can I? Get Out essentially and read in turn will frequently challenge other Billionaires Ju to do the same thing. So sort of what this creates is this network of rich people were funding. The same nonprofits are the same super pacs or the same candidates behind the scenes and what the ends up creating is some organization really well funded others don't and no one really knows this donor table exists, but it's sort of is how big money politics works, which is you know without full Disclosure and accountability and transparency. But read is sort of the node of this new political network something I'd like us to talk a little bit more about is you know there are billionaires all over the country on both sides of the political aisle pouring money into the twenty twenty election and you know I think it's important to cover silicon valley in the billionaires here. Can you explain a little bit more why Silicon Valley is of particular note why are we focusing on? Tech Billionaires. People Reid. Hoffman when we cover politics and money in two thousand twenty. So at the core of read bins takeover of the Silicon Valley money machine is this tension that re dispensing millions of dollars to house trump and yet lots of Democrats hate him and the reason is Hoffman doesn't just want to fund the Democratic Party in the traditional ways he wants to fund Democratic Party in a very silicon valley way funding start-ups that might compete with the democratic establishment. Of State Democratic parties which are the backbone of the National Democratic infrastructure. Hoffman has basically declared a war on the Democratic Party establishment and that sort of has obviously made a lot of Democrats. uncomfortable. He's willing to fund things that push the envelope that some people have ethical concerns over. It's not as easy as well. Re Hoffman spending his fortune to hours trump. There's a lot of uneasiness about him and that makes them a fascinating character the fact that how? Democrats. Both accept his money with open arms and celebrate him. As you know a bore against what he sees a fascist threat at the same time, he's being very critical people who've made their entire careers about being a professional democratic political operative and a lot of ways. Obviously, this gets at a broader criticism of Silicon Valley, which is the respect expertise. They think they know everything I think a lot of Democrats feel that way about Silicon Valley in. But SORT MINNESOTA symbolize this bigger debate about whether any of these silicon valley people know what they're talking about when they enter a field that is not business.

Here's what he said happened at Focus Group in Charleston and one woman. Said said to the moderator. She said it and I'm bothered. By the fact that Lindsey Graham did not stand up for his friend John McCain and she said if he won't stand up for his best friend. What would do for me here? Harrison explain how that sentiment could be his route to victory over Lindsey Graham right now Jamie Harrison. Thank you very much for being on the PODCAST. Thank you Jonathan. I appreciate it so I to get into to who you are and when you look at your biography it's gripping in its gripping in its deprivation and in its success and start with the dipper the tough early years and there one line in your bio that just grabbed me and I read it several times a simple line and it was Were you said you remember eating cereal with water? Because you couldn't afford milk. Listen when I tell folks that we it was difficult and hard it was The that particular situation there are a number of occasions. Where you we go to fridge. Go get some milk. I love fruity pebbles. I also and and and my grandma would You know sometimes. She wouldn't be at home because she's working and it wouldn't be milk and so you have to put water in it I there were times Jonathan when you know my grandfather who were construction would get up in the morning needed to go to work. And the Goethe's car truck in the gas on empty in In so you know. I'm helping him trying to looking through couch cushions Looking for quarter nickel dime so he just get enough. You know at that time Gal. Gas was less than a dollar Just enough to Get to work and back and and because he needed to go to work we we had to have him go to work. It wasn't like he was going. He was on salary. Who's GONNA I mean We were we were Every Nickel County In our household himself you lived with your grandparents. Because your your mom had you when she was sixteen yes she. She had me when she was sixteen years old. And we. My mom and I both live with my grandparents for awhile and then my mom decided She got a job and got a house and moved out until then I stayed with her for a while and then she got laid off at her job and couldn't find anything here in South Carolina so she decided to go to Atlanta and When she decided to go to Atlanta the the agreement was that she would go find a job. Kind of get situated. I would see here with my grandparents until that happened but You know time pass. My mom did eventually situated. But I didn't WanNa leave my grandparents and it's because my grandparents and I had sort of a symbiotic relationship It got to the point where I feel obligated like I took care of them and they took care of me They didn't have a whole lot of education. My grandmother had an eighth grade education because she dropped out of school to pick cotton and then worked in textile insurance she did. Domestic were and my grandfather had a fourth grade education. He Stop School. He worked at a dairy and then he did construction. Most of his life up until he got diabetes but because they didn't have a lot of education and you know I was a kid. Who's the I did well in school even early on I was reading above my reading. Level you know early on and so Bills would come into the house and it was my job to read them to tell my grandparents what it was now the context for what? I was reading. It had no idea what clue was but That's what I read. And so but at the same time they took care of me they made sure I had my clothes my food and and took me to all the little things that I wanted to do. And so we had a very very close bond and in some ways my grandparents And I were is sort of a second set of parents in essence and But due to remarkable people one really horrible thing that happened was that their house was sold out from under actually taken away from them. Talk about what happened in that. So you know when I was this is when I was in Middle School Mike Grimm so the House that I was born in my grandparents decided to sell. 'em Uh my grandma was just had her heart set on a mobile home in this. When you know mobile homes are eight. They were coming out in their fancy and they had like the Jacuzzi Tub and all this other stuff even though we now know it as an investment is not something that you really want to invest. Because it didn't build any equity in thing so but nonetheless they went and they decide to get a mobile home so they took the money that a guy from the house they went to this mobile home manufacturing place and they bought one But they had to meet mortgage payments. Just like you know you would do on a house and so my The Guy who was there at the at the place he basically told my grandparents. Okay every month you bring your your payment to me and I will send it in to the And so they decide to do that. And so what you say is bring your money order because my grandfather always would go to post office and You get his paycheck. Get a cash. Go to the post office. Get a money order. My grandma would take the money order to the The Guy and he said well I'll feel it out for you so I can put all the information on it right and they did it for months and then they started getting letters that said you know Harrison. We haven't receive your payments allied and he took the my grandma and I would take a ladder to the guy and said I'll call them right now and find out what's going on. There's something wrong with their computer systems. Or whatever when on for a few more months then finally. It was a knock on the door. It was a sheriff in an. He's said Mr Miss Hairs. I'm to tell you but The bank is foreclosed on your home. And you're going to have you have until this time to move out. And they were devastated. Grandfather never really cried much had never saw. He's one of those you lose. All southern men just tough Grizzle Digest. It never cried and but that was one of the first times I saw my grandfather cry Because he would. He always believed in being diligent with his bills because his his father always told me to do that. We will. You always pay your bills and So we were. We were stuck on sleeping on couches and spare beds of friends and You know aunts cousins for a few months until my My grandma and you know as luck would have it. My grandfather also lost his job that the guy who ran the construction company rain for got ill and so they had to lay off all the folks on the companies and my grandfather also lost his job right around the same time and so finally we found this little place. Six forty four Green Street in Orangeburg. it was an a not a duplex triplex. Or something like that. And we had this one. Little two bedroom on the in and In my launch video.

"Race Andrew Yang strikes again well there's an old timey name you haven't heard the inter Yang yeah no Yang is a disruptive force in the Democratic Party at least this week he is because remember New York state and its board of elections had canceled their democratic primary for June twenty third and said not we're not gonna have it anymore we've got Joe Biden don't worry about it and for the health and safety of our people are not gonna have this and that was widely seen as something of a coup attempt because Bernie Sanders made it really clear when he quote endorsed Joe Biden but he still wants his own voters to vote for him even though he's out of the race another reason for that is because he wants to crude delegate delegate strength by the time he shows up at the convention whatever form that takes but the democratic convention if he's gotten a lot of delegates behind him he can use that to advance the more socialist elements of the democratic platform that he's interested in seeing and then that's why Bernie was doing that so in New York it was believed that this was an effort to basically say never out we're not going to participate in this game we're just gonna try to get as many delegates as we can over to Joe Biden and Bernie you can go home but what ended up happening yesterday thank Dan thanks Dan regarding a lawsuit he filed he's a federal judge ruled that New York must go forward with its presidential primary the judge U.

"Shot at Maryland's wake up. Call tomorrow on the program. Sheriff David Clarke will be our guest. And on Friday show. We'll hear from a young woman who was carjacked at gunpoint in Baltimore City. Her case just most recently has been resolved. And we'll hear her story in the nightmare that she had negotiated through in the Baltimore criminal injustice system. And we'll find out just incredible incredible story that's coming up on Friday show. All right. So I did want to comment on this story that delegate Megan seminar. Again, did a party switch yesterday an orchestrated publicity seeking event in which she gotten in front of the democrat party chairwoman. Kathleen Matthews, and they check the box on the big she's gone from Republican now to democrat. If you don't recognize the name, she's the one who came out as bisexual during her conversion therapy debate. And now she's changed parties. And what are you hear the reason the registration switch made in presence of the state Democratic Party officials caps say turbulence six months, she is when some of their took the four urging house to Bank conversion therapy for LGBT youth, put it off with her father, Brian who is a Republican state Senator Simon areas, not seeking reelection. Said she needs to be transparent with their constituents quote. I believe it is respectful not only to them. But for me as well to have somebody represent them. We'll be able to continue to vote. They're conservative values that I would not be able to anymore. So yeah, it is her values that have switched not yours. If you're a conservative or Republican Megan seminars switched her values, and she now is embracing the party of identity politics. And she said she's doing that. Because the party Fitch values, including equality and respect. Oh, oh, you mean like the equality and respect they just showed Justice Cavanaugh is that right? And then we get to the real root of this thing, by the way, she's in thirty one being enrolled county. That's also house minority leader, Nick, Kip keys. Here's the real reason. Why Megan seminaries is bolting the Republicans quote, President Trump regularly attacked minorities women in anyone who does not agree with him. I could no longer remain a part of a party that condones his divisive rhetoric. It's reprehensible go really Megan. What about the party that embraces antiga? What about the party that as is? Or at least doesn't denounce violence committed against other Republicans and even conservative Democrats. We're seeing an all time the party of mad Maxine that says getting their face confront them at airports, and and in restaurants, and in public is that the party of equality and respect, you know, what this is let me tell you what this is this is Megan seminar, unfortunately because of her confused. Whatever it is sexuality that she's embracing today is has fallen into the identity politics trap. And this is what Democrats do your defined by who you are not the values that you embrace. We've seen it repeatedly Frank this. They practice identity politics. They're a a patchwork of whether it's LBJ my minority or whatever these are people who put their sexuality and their race and their gender before the true values of America. I'm all in favor of her leaving the party. I think it was just a terrific idea to begin with. I mean, more and more never Trumpers and. Rhino Republicans ought to do the same. I think it's a great idea. Now, we know their true colors who they really are. I would advocate more and more of you people out there who serve in our Maryland legislature, or in congress, or wherever in Washington DC, just come on out of the closet and say who you really are. So we don't have to guess who you are any law. We'll go for the rhinos. Just mentioned the never Trumpers. Right. Well, that include the governor that would include everybody, would you say are you suggesting the governor? I would include everybody if you if you can't stand the heat get the hell out of the kitchen right now governor HOGAN that may apply to you. Look, it is what it is. I if if if you are more democrat, more, right? Et cetera et of rather center or you're just outright never-trumper or a rhino. Get the hell out of the party kind of checks all the boxes for the governor. Really doesn't matter. I don't care who it is. All right. Eliminates the confusion and deceit right again. These these people who claim to have the values of a conservative Americans and constitutionalists, and so on and so forth. An example is a conservative come while. He wrote a book a cold calling conscience is lying. Look, I think you can count the true conservatives in both the Senate and the house on a couple of that's that's my belief being a Reagan conservative. And now, of course, they Trump conservative because he's changing things up to but you can count them on one hand. And this is the problem with the Republican party for a number of years republicanism is supposed to be conservatism, basically, and you're supposed to uphold the constitution, you're a law and order person. You're a second amendment personal all that kind of stuff like that. I don't wanna hear these people anymore left of. Alcohol concern so-called conservative who is just a little bit right of center, come on his show, your true colors, and that's we're going to get get to Claire mccaskill here. A little bit later on with James O'Keefe. She's trying to pull the hoodwink over moderate voters. But this is what happens to center left center, right voters. They get these politicians that will promise one thing, and then they get government, and then they get elected then they governed entirely differently. And they've completely betrayed the people that have voted for them that have worked for them that have donated to their campaigns. It's a complete betrayal of the trust of the people pendulum in a in a grandmother's clock so grandfather's clock. But they're so Meghan. Seminar. Switching because President Trump isn't showing the equality and respect. Never Trumpers in the Maryland legislature. Get out of the party now get out of the party Democrats. Yeah. You got a much better chance of getting elected in the state of Maryland has a democrat than you do as a Republican. Right. So go forward and the same way in congress get the hell out. Oh, jeez. From the words of Dr Louvre directly to governor, HOGAN, go home and watch your grandmother's, CLYDE and mentioned anything. I know you. In the shoe wearing. All right. Dr Chuck is here to save the day. That's what I say. Your grandmother's here. I am. Meanwhile, the clock grandmother glaucoma.

"In the Empire State and the polls in the New York primary should be closing right about now from Montauk to Manhattan from buffalo to Brooklyn. Let the counting begin and good evening everyone. I'm Brian Lehrer. We're the WNYC election night special. How new New York, and that's really the question, isn't it? How new will the next New York state government be after today's democratic primaries for governor Lieutenant governor state attorney, general and members of the state Senate now the marquee race is Cuomo versus Nixon, and obviously we'll have returns for you as soon as they come in. But in a very real sense one of the most unmarked categories of elections primaries for the state legislature, not sexy in normal times. But these are not normal times. It's the state Senate primaries that might hold the key to so much potential change. If the Democrats get any more set up tonight to take control of the state Senate think about it more rent regulation in unaffordable New York Medicare for all which is just a voter to away in the Senate as we speak codifying Roe versus Wade into state law. Just in case Brad Kavanagh bail reform the child victims act, which would extend the statute of limitations for prosecuting priests and others. But of course, it's driven by all these revelations about priests who are being revealed way after the fact as sexual predators. All those items and more have been Democratic Party priorities, but have been thwarted by the slim Republican majority in the New York state Senate. So we will know tonight if Democrats in their primaries have set themselves up for any stronger run at a majority in the November elections. With me. Now, our state politics reporter for WNYC Fred mogul and Mara Gaye from the New York Times editorial board. Fred is at the headquarters of the New York state Democratic Party, which is backing Cuomo and his running mate, Kathy hotel and Letitia James for attorney general Maura. Hi, Fred, happy primary night. Brian. So Fred, you're at democratic headquarters is the governor there. He is not. And he is we're told pretty much unlikely to show he's supposed to watching the returns come in with his family in Westchester, even then they playing. One hundred percent say he will or won't show up. He is there. He won't be here. But it seems pretty unlikely that he will show up here in the city. So we have lots of people who who like him and we're working for him. We have a whole lot of media. But we we do seem to be absent the governor for the wait. What does that mean? No victory speech, if he wins we domination tonight. It's not clear. It's not clear why they won't even commit one way or the other. It seems like he'll have to say something, I think there are some camera trucks. I'm assuming parked outside his house in Westchester. I think that was the the drill in two thousand fourteen but they just they've been playing this cat and mouse game with the media for days now, and that's really tough to depend on down on anything. That might sound. So maybe he'll come out in his pajamas. If he's declared the winner or something like that Mara Gaye. Should we make of that that the governor expects an embarrassingly small margin of victory if he wins tonight or something other than that? No. You know, I do think I don't know if it'll be embarrassing embarrassingly small margin of victory. But I do think that there is a large sense among not just voters tonight, but insiders Albany insiders, including the governor's camp that no one really knows what's going to happen here, and I can't stress how unusual that is. I mean, I don't I don't have to tell you Brian. How unusual that is for a democratic primary in New York, you know, a state primary. We haven't seen something so competitive or seemingly competitive in in a very long time. Now, listen. I want to invite you to be a part of this program tonight. We are going here. What we're gonna do. You have an on the role to play tonight. We will call it an informal. Unofficial thoroughly unscientific primary night exit poll, but don't flood the phones everybody we want to do this in groups kind of like summer camp. And the first group up is voters north of New York City, especially if you live in Sean Patrick Maloney's congressional district. And I realized that's very specific. But the rest of the listeners might learn something interesting from you two one two four three three WNYC two one two four three three nine six nine to take calls from the rest of you later on but voters north of New York City, especially if you live in Sean Patrick Maloney's congressional district. There are questions about how Maloney would do in his own district. Running attorney general we'll explain why and questions about whether Cynthia Nixon with a raise taxes campaign could get suburban votes so listeners north. Of the city who voted today, especially if Sean Patrick Maloney is your congressman you get the first call in tonight who did you vote for for governor and Lieutenant governor and state attorney general in the democratic primary two one two four three three WNYC four three three nine six nine two. Fred, let me go right back to you. If the governor is trying to disappear more or less for his potential victory speech. Even that's consistent as you've just indicated with how he ended the campaign over the last few days, isn't it? Right. So you know over the weekend this scurrilous Mailer appeared accusing Nixon of being an anti Semite. He downplayed his role as campaigns role in it that even the state Democratic Party, which had issued it. Downplayed its role in circulating in inventing. It's and so he's taking he's had a few occasions in the last few days where or he's taken questions, but that's been a real flash points over the last several days as well as problems with the former tappan Zee bridge and the new Mario Cuomo bridge. So as part of his defensive strategy, it's been sort of keep away from us, even rallies campaign rallies closing rallies. He generally has invited the press to. And mar after the scurrilous Mailer is Fred called it the false accusations in some Cuomo campaign literature this week about Cynthia Nixon and anti-semitism they did retract it. And you on the times editorial board wrote an editorial calling it nearly as sleazy as dirty politics gets and call for Cuomo to apologize to Nixon. Instead, he just did basically disappear from view and some people, including some callers to our show the last few days called on your editorial board to rescind its endorsement of Cuomo on that basis. Did you consider it? We did think about it. And at the end of the day, we stuck to our guns, and there are several reasons for that. But to give you a little bit of a peek behind the curtain, you know, there are red lines that if crossed I think would lead most editorial boards, in fact, most voters, I believe to rescind endorsement or to take away about one of those things would be, you know, indictment, for example, need to doubt scandal that was you know, had a preponderance of evidence. And there are certainly other other cases, we didn't feel that actually terrible. That is and why we didn't actually met that threshold. And then I would also say that what we said about Andrew Cuomo in our editorial endorsing him remains to be true. Which is when he is focused on the active governing. Political nonsense and games. And when he's forced to do the right thing, which can be both a good bad thing in politics. He does the right thing. And we had concerns about Nixon ability to govern. Even we found her very attractive, and and in particular her reform, you know, her platform of reform with was very attractive, very smart woman and have a lot of experience and certainly see why she'd be attractive to many voters, but you also different when you actually put your newspapers feeling approval on something you really need to ask the question. Not just do you agree with this person? But knish person get things done can this person govern. And ultimately we had to make the same decision that voters do and that's a very imperfect one especially this season. Let's take a phone call from Crawford New York and Orange County candy. Your WNYC. Thank you so much for calling in. This is exciting. I know my cou- candidates have done really well. And I really think that very strong added. The thing about having the experience is not an issue wasn't time. One former they're not have you know, really expanding. And and he was you know, posted in charge, and he comes into the job with all these exchanges and yet come into. And he wants another time to do what he hasn't done anything. For woman has now it'd be sent to me in the state of New York for sure, okay? Patrick maloney. Along with men. I think you know, that as a woman suffered Tito is gonna make sure that my inches are under the table. And she's gonna fight for them. Are you worried Candida that if baloney becomes the attorney general even the nominee tomorrow morning? He would have to drop out of the congressional race. Which is in a swing district where you live there. Are you worried that a Republican would take that seat? And that's exactly what they waiting to. And we need that. We don't we cannot afford to lose another. So I think right now. They can't even though we have a strong. You know, I it was not good. Not good at all. Candy. Thank you so much for starting off on the phones. I think we're going to get a different point of view from another caller in Orange County. And obviously what that caller said about. Komo not doing anything for women Cuomo not having any experience when he became governor those, you know, those things could be debated, but the poser already close, so we're not getting into the nitty gritty of that from multiple points of view so much. We're hearing how you from your multiple points of view, round, up processing, everything and voting tonight. And I think we have a different point of view also from congressman Maloney's district in Orange County. Diane, you're on WNYC. Thank you for calling in. Diana. Hey there. Hi, my husband, and I live in Orange County. We moved up here about four years ago from Westchester. We have been at rallies town halls with Sean, Patrick and my husband, and I vote differently in terms of the general spot. I voted Sean, Patrick he voted for logistics, James. And we had both been at the Cooper union attorney general's do they thank you for being a part of that hosting. And I think both of us voted for. Komo. And you know, I felt that Sean Patrick while he wasn't a woman, and I would have hoped to be a part of electing a woman. I felt that he had some key things about him that were very special. You know, he's a gay guy. He's come out there. He's adopted incredibly diverse kids, you know, Latina and an African American. He's on the right side of the issues that we're for. So you know, I'm happy to hear that yesterday. He was one percents ahead of Latisha, James. And you know, are you are you worried? Are you worried Diane as a proud democrat? It sounds like you are seat given who some of your neighbors are in Orange County. That see that moment when the Democrats are trying to take back the house of Representative is put at risk on absolutely concerned about that. And so is my husband dawn who voted a bit differently than me. And he was he was voting because. James because she was concerned about that. Yeah..
