Political Campaigns See Flood Of Outside Money, Often From Unknown Donors

"A record amount of outside money is flooding into Senate races across the country. Of course, control of the chamber is up for grabs in next week's election. As NPR's gyms are only reports much of the outside money comes from groups whose donors are mystery. Last March. A day before the filing deadline, Montana Governor Steve Bullock announced he would challenge the Republican Senate incumbents Steve Daines, and so began the epic battle of this Steve's on the airwaves. I think that Danes had his first attack at up in I would say it was less than a week. Lee Banville teaches journalism at the University of Montana, he says many millions of dollars are being spent on the race the population of its largest city. Billings, Khun fit inside a big college football stadium. So all those millions by a lot of TV and Internet ads, whether it's the radio, or, you know, gosh knows if you're watching the nightly news or jeopardy. You just It's political out after political ad do you call a man who doesn't just accept trumps corruption? But votes for it? What do you call a man like this? You call him? Delis. That ad is paid for by the never Trumper Lincoln Project, one of the most prolific spenders this year. Montana writer Dan Brooks wonders if he sledgehammers subtle negative ads turn off voters from the perspective of people that I talked about. It just makes everyone generally angry at politics. I think that like Just seeing it everywhere is alienating. Many of these groups have bland names that obscure who they really are. Ah, bill passed by the House would force them to be more transparent about their funders. It's stuck on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is desk. The idea behind the bill is that voters should know where this outside money is coming from, even if they can't get rid of it altogether. Jim's a roly NPR

"Steve. Bullock is the twenty fourth governor of Montana you may have heard also running for president his very boot based stump speech which is odd given that there is no syllable of his name. That has a boot in it and also Montana's not shape like boot that's Louisiana but it's about the fact that he wears is boots and he represents the people who wear boots and we need to of course boot. The current occupants of the Oval Office out Governor joins me. Thanks for coming on. It's great to be with you tonight. So I'll start with I'll start with a little bit of softball and one that you can handle. But Watch for the twist at the end. So as we survey the political realities of the moment. Why do so you think you will be the best candidate to beat president? Mike Pence. Well I'm the only one that actually one on in. What was it trump state? He took Montana by twenty. I won by four twenty five to thirty percent of my voters voted for Donald Trump. I've been able to bridge. Edged divides with you know majority Republican legislature to get progressive things done but really this race comes down to this about math if we can't win. Places Aces like Michigan Wisconsin Pennsylvania. We're not GONNA win this election so be it Trump or pants. I think I have something unique to the field old. If we're actually going to bring back these Obama trump voters that we need to get you have said in this interview and before that you have shown an ability that you win in a state the only candidate who's one in a state that actually voted for trump. You Win by four percent is he. Wins by five percents so this means something. He walked by Twenty Wani. Oh yeah excuse me correction but I wonder if one of the reasons that you could win in red state a state eight that trump won is because you pursue policies that the democratic electorate the Democratic voters by and large. Don't like for instance. This is reality being the government of Montana and acknowledged that but you know if you look at the statistics. Montana has the sixth most. Co Two emissions per capita. Montana has a and you have endorsed the different environmental agenda than maybe is the then I would say definitely as the mainstream of the Democratic Party. So how much much is your success because you do some things that a mainstream Democrat might not like Now look because we've also doubled the amount of wind just in the last ask six years we've quadrupled. The amount of solar were part of the overall state climate alliance and we were outdoors. Folks like we see what needs to get don we have that. Co Two emissions in part. Because we have the second largest coal fired generating plant west of Mississippi half of which is going to end up closing by the end into this year. I if if if the core that were progressive is actually making progress and people's lives while we've been able to do with education we've been able to do with health care what we've been able to do with Kicking dark money out of our elections. I take that against anybody the in this field because I think in times Washington sees become a place where you give a good speech and you say oh. Wasn't that a big victory. Well doesn't impact people's lives I think that in part certainly I've tried to connect with folks not just saying those went to college. When you have two thirds of people in this country that have no college degree? I've tried to actually go out. You know I go after. Go both in running for office and in campaigning. To places where it doesn't seem like there's a Democrat inside but a show up I listened and I respect perspectives. That are different than mine and I don't know that we're always doing that as a party. So the power plant you mentioned. I think that's the talent energy plants is that right. Yeah Coal Strip right coal strip. Okay this is the six largest source of greenhouse emissions in the United States half of it units three and four I believe will remain in operation is one and to close. What was your stance on that where you said? CFO because of the jobs picture. Well I think one of the things in this ought to be a lesson for all of us. Is that when this happens. You can't leave communities behind so we've been working. Both you got folks have spent their whole life powering during this country like we have to address climate change first of all like recognize in the West Fire Seasons are seventy days longer than they were about forty years ago and we're outdoors torch people. We see it every single day but we've also worked to try to figure out as at community transitions. How can we create opportunity? Opportunity there and that's everything from hiring people with skills to do the clean up and making sure that they're paid a decent wage to bringing in federal dollars others to look at what community transition looks like and I think we have to do that. Not just in state like Montana but all across this country so coal strapped in which guests how they got their name and what their job is. I want you to think about a ten year old coal strip who sits at the dinner table. And here's mom and pop and says the future is not looking too good and he looks you in the eye and says does he have a future and call strip. What do you say to him in that community because it's a beautiful community and it still has both the potential for for and beautiful community with good schools? Good hardworking people. Everything from manufacturing to what's going to be used on that line right afterwards The big transmission line along the way that absolutely and that's we can't you know one of the things you look at it over the last decade okay about two thirds of the counties in this country lost business and folk saying do I really need to leave my community. Are My place worship just to make a decent living like if we're forgetting about rural areas if we're not actually saying how can we try to viability ability there while the disconnect in this country. Forget about the politics disconnect. This country's only going to get that much greater so are you. Would you be reassuring to the ten year old. Because because who doesn't want to reassure a ten year old first of all would you reassurance be based on the fact that there are other better different cleaner more future oriented industries or would your your reassurance be in part by telling him that long term you know that coal and fossil fuels will be part of the future. I think now science. It's has to drive this at this point you know. PCC says we gotta be net zero emissions by twenty fifty. I've said the. US could do it by twenty forty maybe before now the scientists even say that you'll have some carbon use by then but we also have to explore things like carbon capture along along the way there's been more technological changes. Probably in these microphones. We're talking to in the last five or six years. We've generated energy from fossil pills probably will especially coal probably lasts forty so I certainly wouldn't tell that ten year old count on it like count on Colby and part of this but I would say that there is going to be great opportunity in your communities because we need to make sure and do everything we can that we're we're not leaving communities behind so I think that's a good answer and I agree with it but it's not the answer you gave when you were asked that exact question in two thousand sixteen debate for governor you did say longterm. We know that coal and fossil fuels part of the future for the purpose of this question. I want you to view me as a ten year old from Coal Strip who sits at the dinner table on. Here's mom and pop talking about futures. Not Looking so good so the ten year old looks you in the eye and says under your leadership. Do I have a future. Churn Coal Strip that ten year old. Yeah you do have a future in Montana and in coal strip. I'd say that twenty eight percent of our country's coal reserves are right here in Montana. I'd say to him that long term we know the coal and other fossil fuels will be part of our energy future which to me gets at the idea that you one in Montana in part because you said things set appeal to the people of Montana. Now that you're running nationally your. I'm not saying contradicting yourself. At least emphasizing different parts of the answer and shouldn't voters take that into account look and even in long before I got into this worked with other states we lead carbon capture capture the initiative for the country to save. What might happen going forward recognizing that technology changes and and I think that you've you've seen more coal plant closures and more coal companies going bankrupt in the last two and a half years under trump than it was under Obama and in part that's market forces in part that's natural gas in part? It's if we actually look at this and say we can't wait another thirty years. There's to address climate change. But let's not just talked about as climate crisis. Let's talk about a climate opportunity to create jobs to not leave communities behind then. I think think that we're GONNA come closer to actually doing something about it. Not just talking about so you mentioned money and politics and how Montana has addressed that that you glanced over it. I think it's a gigantic accomplishment. We had the director and one of the main journalists behind the nineteen eighteen documentary. Dark money on and it really is a huge achievement. I don't know how much listeners know I was talking to you one hundred years ago. I could just assume that you as governor of Montana China would essentially be on the payroll of King Copper. And now you have passed your status past some of the most aggressive progressive laws against dark money. Tell me why that scalable to the national level especially since the Supreme Court has a ruling right now called citizens united. Yeah and I was actually attorney. General in the citizens united came up took you know. State's Democrats and Republicans and wrote the brief on behalf of the states and take the first case up to the. US Supreme Court after her citizens united lost on a five four decision. But what we did do as least undisclosed money dark money. We've kicked it out of our election. Say Ninety days out from election election. If you're going to spend in elections you have to close where that money comes from. I think it is scalable on a national level. I step back. The this isn't a fringe issue. We're just talking about climate change. The first George Bush talked about the need to address the greenhouse effect from the White House effect. Newt Gingrich when he was speaker talked about needing leading to address climate change. I think it's money and politics. It's made it so. The Republican Party is the only major political party in the world that does knowledge climate change is real and you can talk about gun violence. You can talk about healthcare you can talk about income inequality for so many of those issues. It is a corrupting influence of money. The system I think how you change that we also by by executive order. I signed executive said. I can't tell you corporations. You can't spend our elections but if you want to bid on a state contract you just have to disclose every single way that you're spending or contributing didn't pack those elections think about if you did that at the federal level they contract with Dang near every company in this country in this world. And at least you're gonna add sunshine and transparency is. You're taking other steps to curb the influence of money in the system. Now oh I need to ask you. As a governor of a state where copper was king and still a big industry. I ask every candidate this as president. Will you do away with pennies. You you know. Not just because the parochial interest of copper mining. I got a sentimental feeling for fanny's I'm not going to get rid of fannies. Really they cost more than a penny to produce. And what did he really do. I hope as you're walking down the streets of the city if you see a penny on the ground you pick it up. I do it each and every time and edits there may be that cental attraction to the penny that. I'm just not quite ready to say I'm going to get rid of it. If you do get the nomination the first executive action that you'll carry out is to pick a running mate now if we look at your track record as Governor Your First Lieutenant Governor was John Walsh who ran for Senate and was revealed that he had he had plagiarized portions Russians of a research paper at the Army War College and that led to the revocation of his master's degree then. You had another replacement Angela. McLean your relationships our their emails else attesting to that..

"INCLUDING LONG-TERM CARE audio vision dental and mental health benefits so away completely comprehensive system administered by the government. She says that this will cost twenty point five trillion dollars over ten years. You kinda start with fifty two trillion and work your way down from there because our big thing is she says we already spend fifty two trillion so we can keep spending fifty fifty two trillion the way we're spending it right now with the middle class pain for a lot of it or we can shift the entirety of the fifty two trillion. So she gets to twenty point five trillion by sort of. You've subtracting what we're already spending. And so where are we going to have to make up the difference about the cost. After that additional cost is a third of the federal government is projected to spend over over the next decade in total so this would add a lot to what the government is spending and her first principal on paying for it. Is that people who already spent a lot of money. Johnny on healthcare are going to continue to spend a lot of money on healthcare. They're just going to spend it with someone else. So employers would pay the government a similar amount to what they currently we spend with private insurance companies on employees healthcare. That's approximately eight point eight trillion of her plan so and I think this is another interesting component of the employer part part. which is she hurt? Her basic argument is I'M GONNA take it down a little bit now and over the long term ten years plus they're going end up paying less than they would if they were continuing to pay for private insurance benefits for their employees. I don't know how true that is. But that's her plan. Yes yes she doesn't explain how that is to be but that is what she says. She also says state and local governments who are currently covering their state workers and low income residents under the Medicaid Program Program would put in about six point one trillion dollars and then we have tax increases so her wealth tax proposal on billionaires was supposed to be about out three percent now she's doubling that to six percent annual tax on net worth over a billion dollars. She proposes creating a tax on financial transactions like stock trades to come up with another eight hundred billion dollars. She says we are going to enforce our tax laws in ways that we haven't done before to bring in an additional two trillion in taxes that otherwise would be owed but uncollected. She talks about how she would like to overhaul our immigration laws to broaden the tax base. So we would have additional taxes paid by immigrants who are new Americans. She wants to cut military spending by eight hundred billion dollars. And then there's kind of a component of this that is about a belief that this system is just going to be profoundly more efficient than our current system system and so she makes assumptions about how it's going to cost less to administer this we're GONNA keep administrative expenses for the entire system at two point three percent which is where Medicare is today that we would be able to put all this downward pressure on drugs. And there's there's a lot of specificity sufficiency around the pharmaceutical aspect which I think we should probably cover in like five things you need to know about drugs at some point because it's it's hard to understand without some background in that industry history but basically. She is contemplating lowering spending on generic drugs by thirty percent and on brand name drugs by seventy percent so her estimates are much much more aggressive than one of the big white papers out there right now. About what a system like this would cost the urban institute released a detailed assessment of.

"I don't think the long grass is strong right. We talked several weeks ago. Go about Saudi Aramco. The most profitable company in the world is owned by the Saudi Arabian government. We told you at the time that the plan was for Saudi Aramco to go public and that is happening. It is being listed on the Saudi Stock Exchange. It's thought to be worth about one and a half trillion dollars. This is pretty important. Important for the country unemployment in Saudi Arabia is over ten percent right now and the expectation is that money from the IPO will go into new industries. The government invested in to create new jobs for Saudi Arabia's citizens. The question is are investors. Going to be deterred by the fact that this company is one of the world's biggest polluters and at the Saudi Arabian government murdered a US journalist not all that long ago and has still never been held accountable for it. I mean this is a part of the crown prince efforts to diversify the Saudi economy which is incredibly dependent on this company and the oil reserves makes them vulnerable when it comes to attacks as we saw with the attack on one of the Aramco facilities ladies. If you months ago I mean I just to me. It's so weird to talk about Aramco to say you know to say. Oh it's the it would be the most valuable company above of Microsoft because it's not a company like to put it on a stock exchange implies that it's like Microsoft and it's not it's the Saudi government it's like buying stock in the Saudi government. A government that pollutes government. That oppresses a government that was instrumental and continues to be instrumental in the humanitarian crisis in Yemen a country. That's run by a man who like you just said was instrumental the mental in the murder of a US journalist. So I mean I don't I don't know if there will be any major hesitation on the part of investors. My cynical instinct is no. I mean the United States government has has enforced no consequences on the Saudi government because of their terrible policies or involvement in the murder of Shoghi. But you know it's still just it's just weird. It's not a regular company in like the thought of owning owning stock in it is like the thought voting stock in Saudi Arabia itself. I would like to understand even setting aside the climate change and Kashogi concerns. What are the ethical issues that investors would have to think through to be able to own stock in a company like this? That's so attached to the Saudi Arabian government. It seems like this is is just rife with potential conflicts and the kind of corruption that throughout the world. Everyone says they're interested in combating. So it'll it'll be interesting to see how this goes. We just wanted to put it on your radar. We also have the announcement of a new acting secretary for for the Department of Homeland. Security Chad Wolf will be the fifth such individual to serve in that post in the trump administration. I had to look this up just to review John. Kelly was our I. D H S secretary. He was confirmed when he moved over to the chief of Staff Role Elaine Duke served as the acting. Dha Secretary followed by Kirsten who was confirmed by the Senate she was followed by Kevin McLean. WHO's currently the acting secretary? Although there is some confusion about when his stop date is and the start date for Chad. Wolf is Chad Wolf served as Kirstin. Nielsen's chief of Staff. He has been at the Department of Homeland Security for the entirety the of its existence and is described as a very competent person. He comes in at a rough time for D. H. S. I am. I'm so tired of hearing the word acting. I don't know what it means anymore. Why do we haven't acting chief of staff that's not even a Senate confirmed position and I think that this? Oh you know this bubbles to the top of sort of things..

"We're going to be joined today. Ed Bouchette very special guest in our main segment. We're spending a few minutes with Governor Steve Bullock of Montana a very accomplished governor in his own right and a candidate for the Democratic nomination for President before that we have a lot of news to get to including just a couple of quick highlights of things going on. And then we're going to dive into into what's happening around the twenty twenty race burst up. Let's catch up on impeachment. The House has now released Ivanovich and mckinlay's transcripts from their testimonies Janis. Now we're going to discuss these more in depth on Friday's episode because they just came out like two minutes ago and Beth tackle on the nightly nuance this week but we got a lot of people bowl scheduled to testify this week and we expect almost none of them to show up the name that is probably probably most prominent in the midst of those folks who are supposed to come and don't plan to. Is John Eisenberg. Who is a lawyer for the National Security Council? And he's the person allegedly who made the decision to put the notes of the Ukraine call between the president and Vladimir's Alinsky in a more more classified server and so congress is very interested in what he has to say about why he made that decision. But they're probably going to have to go to court to get him to say to them. We also have an interesting aside from the president over the weekend while he was talking with reporters on the White House lawn as you probably recall from our budget. Conversation government funding runs out on November. Twenty first so we're going to need to figure out a way to fund the government past that date and a reporter asked basically.

I don't know everything's up when we talk about negotiation so have to talk about the negotiation when it happens happens which not very encouraging. It is hard for me to imagine that he would actually harm. Senate Republicans to that extent. Spend 'cause I think that's what happens right. This is really bad for vulnerable. Republicans up for election in two thousand twenty. We have government shutdown and he really needs those folks. So I imagine Mitch. McConnell will talk him down from this but you'd never know because when he gets an idea like that planted it does seem to take on a life of its own I mean he he does not care about the Senate Republicans. I don't think I mean wasn't there a story. Recently that Mitch McConnell was like stop attacking Senate Republicans. I mean you saw it in the report from the New York Times this week in about his tweets they read all eleven thousand tweets and the person he really likes to praises himself and over over half of his tweets were attacks. So if you're just following the through line here he loves himself in a tax anybody who gets in his way so you know if he decides rides that shutting the government down is the best thing for him he already has the longest shutdown in history. Then I'll know what's to stop him just a matter of him remembering that they are in the long run really important for his personal insurance too but who knows long term..

All eyes on Iowa — and Buttigieg

"First and foremost though the Iowa caucuses is about one hundred days out so for today's forecast we're gonNA focus their Harry how are the Democratic candidates ranking in that wonderful state of a wonderful Hawkeye state I do believe not the buckeyes state is some people sometimes call it why though high because it says I there's is there's Look here here's the key thing in Iowa that is so important and basically what you have is that bombarding and Warren at this particular time our hugged together in the low twenty s and this has been fairly consistent since August and what's important here about Iowa that really separates it out nationally is that Buddha judge can make the argument is in third place in Iowa he's somewhere in the low to mid teens right with Bernie Sanders and of course Iowa votes I so a Buddha judge could potentially win there and he may very well could because essentially at this point I would only say that Biden warned combined have somewhere between a fifty five and sixty percents of which leaves forty to forty five percent chance that one of those two won't win that could change the entire dynamic of the field you've spent so much time an Iowa John Please regale us with your stories from the trail may I was stories I prefer to New Hampshire first of all this is he's got a real eye opener reporters do because they're nicer in Iowa and the events are more spread out geographically in that means that I think that each voter actually gets more direct contact with the candidate So I think that the voters in Iowa have such a a a a serious decision process they go through when picking the candidates Biden and Warren bunched up though I mean I don't see that last thing all the way through well I I guess that's the real question right I mean it's been pretty steady since August but you know as Biden Warren have sort of gone after each other you know perhaps or at least Biden's gone after Warren more kind of stays in her own sorta lane there there's going to be this craving for this third alternative right aura fourth alternative and essentially you know if you were to look what is this most like a you know Steve Kornacki my dear friend that MS has said it remains and some of the two thousand four race right where you essentially Dean and Gephardt sort of up there and then you had carrying it where it's kind of a little bit back and then eventually people got the second a top two and then the third and fourth place people ended up finishing in first and second and so I'm not sure can last but at this point you know if you want the argument that worn is rising nationally which we could get to we will that's not the case in Iowa it's really not she has been steady around twenty on twenty two twenty three percent of the vote since the middle of August and Joe Biden who has either fallen or not nationally has been steady in Woah at about the same amount without an organization in without minority voters that's the key difference right that's the key difference between Iowa which probably allows Buddha judge to come in and capitalize on the state of Iowa people to judge is going nowhere with non white voters non white voters are very small percentage he hasn't gone anywhere yet correct white voters but of course momentum comes out of Iowa at least some momentum will then when you hit New Hampshire that's right that's the question is can Buddha judge sort of take I will use it as a launching pad then go on to New Hampshire and it may be that problem we had with non white voters goes audio semi-ghost Goodbye C. L. later what is it about Buddha judge in Iowa is it is it is it is it ground game he hasn't he opened maybe the most if not tied with I don't Know Elizabeth Warren and opening the most offices and he's got Bolos money so he's spending an organization they're he has got a mid Western appeal now I don't know as much about Indiana as some people here donald but it does begin with I and so does Iowa but he's we're all the same it is the mattingly I think closer than some other states that people are just S. so then you know what strikes me as as you did what I think was the most important early interview with people judge in introducing him I think in many ways to the country three even before the town meeting they got so much that people to actually running for the middle of the country he was positioning himself to be the mid Western reds trump's state yeah can't it so that's why I think that he may be connecting in Iowa and I would just argue you know there have been candidates before who have done better in the Mid West than they've done say nationwide you know you can think about Paul Simon Aviator Dick Gephardt eighty a Bob Dole look inside in one thousand nine hundred eighty or even ninety six although we actually did slightly worse in ninety six but the point is is there is this potential sort of home region effect that we also see I'm sure right where the candidates from next door Massachusetts and Vermont tend to do better I think there's an argument to me made that the candidates next door I tend to do better in part perhaps because they sort of speak Iowa can I just say one of the thing though you talked about two thousand four Democratic race I think the one thing people are just be worried about is that it's not to that doesn't sixteen Republican version were Marco Rubio does really well compared to what people thought he finishing third there's no moral victory I think any more has has slipped like Steve Bullock's like if everyone finishes in the top five then they definitely have a chance coming by air the day of the Iowa caucus place fourth and fifth and to ride ticket to ride my

"Saying. Are you really that much of a creep dad but then right it stop ninety days out and elections actually became about the candidates and people and if we can start their stop everywhere because if you look at the issues that we're facing right now and a lot of them that are talking about in this democratic primer from climate change to gun safety to income inequality quality to the fact that kosco can negotiate prescription drugs been it's illegal for the federal government and negotiate prices. All of those things in part goes back the corrupting gain influence and money in our system. We're gonna fix that then. We can also fix all these other things. Take the money out to the system the on on guns. You've had a progressive view that some felt wasn't progressive enough and then over time hi you have used evolved. You weren't a fan of universal background checks and then after parkland. You came in you said listen. I think we need to do more to fight. You know guns getting into the wrong people's hands some say oh. That's not progressive enough. But how do you think the conversation in and around guns needs to be handled especially someone coming coming from montana owner right hunt forty percent of households in america have a firearm in them never forget i'm sitting in my office after it was the vegas shooting and we're asked to lower the flags. I'm like i don't even know what to write in. This proclamation and co worker young staffer goes oh. We now have a template for mass shootings. I've lowered nine times since then seven times parkland. I think if we could ever actually look this. This is a public health issue. Not as a political issue public health issue would say universal background checks look the vast majority of republicans vast majority of n._r._a. Members. I think that we should have universal background. Checks red flag laws safe storage dixon walmart no longer sell salt weapons. There's no reason you know they're not used for hunting nineteen. They're not used for self defence. We shouldn't do that as well but i think we're not growing up. I mean the n._r._a. Was was a gun safety. Who's a hunting and shooting organization. I'll give give you thirty million reasons why we're not making a bit of progress at thirty million dollars that they spent getting trump elected and we're at this point where look he said it right after parkland he said universal background checks we ought to do it. He talked the head of n._r._a. Immediately walked backwards after the el paso in dayton shootings the same thing <unk> happened as well so i think that the way that we do make progress on this first of all figure out who's funding like are the russians or who the who the heck's funding the n._r._a. But more than that recognizing that the commonality of never met a gun owner that isn't worried about saying. I sure hope my kid when he has to go through those active shooter drills at school i sure i hope my kid never gets involved in something like that. If we could ever make it even gun owners and gun owners alike saint. We've got to change what's happening here and we could actually do it. We don't have to rely on just washington dc along the way pretty impressive plans. He seemed like a focus man. Good luck in the rest of the race. Thanks for the debate.

"In this debate is that there were like two parallel debates happening one in which low ranking moderates right like Steve Bullock Doc and Amy Klobuchar and John Delaney would criticize Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren and then I think like Bernie and Warren Kinda like beat them down and then and you had a debate in which sort of better known more liberal people like Kamala Harris Cory Booker Attack Joe Biden and then Biden Kinda like beat them off and so those are like debates across I wouldn't really say be booker off but baron okay. He he stood for definitely survived the fight I just I I I would say the the devastation that Elizabeth Warren laid out on John delorean sure but the they were having arguments about ideology right yes and what you didn't have was arguments about <hes> standard-bearers. We're like it seems to me that if you accept all of the premises of Joe Biden's campaign you might very reasonably think that Steve Bullock would be a better person to say all of that stuff like he's younger. He doesn't have as long of a track record to mine. He's from Montana and was very popular there. <hes> you know stuff like that or you might think Amy Klobuchar who's like stats are really good <hes> she's she's a woman and people could get excited about that that like that might be better and you didn't have those kind of internal arguments and then most famously you didn't have Bernie and Warren argue either about like who should represent their shared viewpoint and in some ways like those arguments are more interesting because it's like you know you and I or or Bernie Sanders and John Delaney any two people could just kinda like argue for ten minutes be like should Democrats be leftist so should they be moderately liberal and you're not going to resolve that question engine whereas I think some of these other questions like who would be the best champion for an argument that we want continuity with Barack Obama like actually really could have an answer if you've talked it out and I'm a little skeptical very skeptical. I think that Joe Biden actually is the right answer to that. It seems like a kind of dumb. MM coordination problem is like holding mainstream Democrats back. I think this is a really sharpened site. <hes> the other person I would put into this PL- into this frame is P.. Buddha judge yes yes. I think that if you listen to the things Joe Biden saying he's doing a very bad job of saying things people to judge is saying and he listened with Pete Buddha judges saying he's is doing a very good job of saying what Joe Biden is saying but the problem is he's not the former vice president of the United States and instead. He's the mayor of South Bend Indiana Way and so this is kind of funny thing happening where there is a good argument to be made from the Joe Biden wing the Democratic Party but Joe Biden honestly is not that good making it right now or at this point a bunch of the other candidates on stage when they talk you can you can if you're watching journalists twitter. You can like see a filter get applied and it's like the Yada Yada Yada filter right. It's like Oh we've cut to Steve Bleecker. We've cut to John Delaney and like who cares right. It's interesting to see whether or not Elizabeth Warren guts like fish but they're not they're not being listened to in an open way and I think some of them are making a points. I thought Michael Bennett for instance has I'm actually quite good answers. On the merits of last night he had some good answers on education and school segregation he had he was one of the only people who spoke about the the trump era economy..

Mayor Pete Buddha. Judge has got a preference of this last name. All right. Acknowledged that people might legitimately want to own handguns for self defense, which the supreme court has recognized as the core. Lawful purpose protected by the second amendment, ladies and gentlemen. The core, lawful purpose. For owning firearms by the second amendment, a pair, I don't believe it's for self defense. It doesn't say that it said, well, regulated militia, blah, blah, blah, the right to keep in bear arms shall not be infringed. These are people who just got finished shooting, their government center of mass. It's for the necessary of. Free State and back then the word state did not mean you biz bureaucratic overlord clearly meant like the nation of Massachusetts nation state or nation state over Jinya could not be overtaken by a behemoth government because the, the anti tyranny. Ability was with all of the men over eighteen years of age all had guns the whole idea, and they were trained in them, and they understood that you kill tyrants, because tyrants kill you. But they used to teach gun safety in school in highschool, there used to be courses on how to use and not long ago. Yeah. But they can't do that anymore. So they don't have the common sense gun safety, can I just don't think it's popular people are scared of them. And it's interesting that they're scared of them, but they are. Well there's roam around him. They're scared of him in these heavily influence population areas, like weld county Colorado, where I was for a couple of years. The literally fifteen years ago, everybody there had gun racks in their pickup trucks, all the kids, and they had guns, enable go out, you know, pheasant hunting or whatever, you know after school or go coyotes or whatever before school. And so these guys were telling me that, like, you know, people that graduated high school in like, you know, two thousand to two thousand three two thousand four like, yeah, we house on a shooting team, and so, like, you know, rural middle America, and I'm sure all New England a lot of northern New England guns were part of where they've been part of the culture. It was a school thing not that long ago there tools. I'm not saying that. I think that first off, you probably safer if you know gun safety. That's a that's thing that people should simply now but a lot of people lot of these, these folks in these big cities and stuff like that the, the voting sorts. They're, they're scared of weapons. They're insecure. Nate Nate feel any. I mean they're, they're they lack confidence. This is all comes back to lack confidence. Right. All these anti-gun people all these pro government people that I come across to either psychopaths I wanna rule people then usually they're not anti-gun because they want to have their gun, so they can, you know, rule you but definitely the anti-government pro-gun people, it's confidence thing. I mean right from being young. I mean being, you know, cradle to grave, you know, just government, you know, fed and took care of and everything's got to be the government is just they've never had fail on her own never had a try. Anything never had to like be responsible do stuff as a kid, for example, or create anything. So therefore, I their confidence is like never really materialized. What I don't understand, is that guns, the great equalizer. They the old saying is that God made man and same cult made them equal, and what they mean by that is that now twelve year old girl can protect herself against Mike Tyson, right? That not to say my Tyson's necessarily going to do anything to twelve year old girls. I'm just putting them up there as somebody who's very good at, you know meeting out violence, if you needed to, and why wouldn't the weakest among us be more pro gun? I don't understand it. I mean I just. I'm not clear on that. Yeah. It's, it's tough. And I. I. Somebody else talking to a pork fest is said that we were talking about guns and said something like I might mess it up a little bit. But I you know, generally a victim of rape becomes pro gun because his life, the only way they can defend themself. And she was like some kind of like counselor thing I lady, and another campfire talk at forecast. You know, is you meet great people all kinds of interesting things. But victims of rape become pro got it actually had brought that up and someone has as well a good way to, you know, to convert someone into a libertarian as good old-fashioned IRS audit..

"Wife and I went to the same one that by daughters at and the campaign team was like, well, what do you mean you can't announce until one thirty in the afternoon? I'm like, well, it's AP testing. So I can't announce I can't pull my daughter out of class, so we sort of scheduled the launch of all presidential campaign. Around my daughter's class scheduled, so and it's a balance right? Anything that anybody does professionally is a balance, but try to do my best at being one hundred percent in all of the roles that's being a governor being a presidential candidate being a spouse and being father. And so when was the last time that you really changed your mind on something really profoundly changed your position? And vetoing a Bill doesn't count. For a Bill. You didn't fully support. Yeah. You know, I think probably the most recent was. On assault weapons ban. And because even when I laid out here, some things we could do it didn't include. He saw weapons ban, and certainly, part of it is all the times I've had to lower flags but we had a. March for our lives in Helena. And I was asked to speak, and I'm like, I'm not gonna speak. And instead. I went I went with my kids and listening to the kids, and they were all high school students. Speaking. That's one where. I finally made the transition that yeah, we should ban these like other sporting goods and others. There's a great discussion. I think that groups like the NRA have been really, really good at trying to divide us by fears that the ideas that will Democrats wanna take everybody's gone away. And that's not true. That is not true. And I think one of the, I've never owned air fifteen I never would I think one of the things I was processed that through is that some folks would want to use it. Then Democrats just wanna take everyone's guns away. But. Now I think I've. Lowered. And I mean the way flag lowering works is that if the president asked governor to lower flags you have the choice whether or not to do it. And then at the state level you can do it. For other things, but counting, like Veterans Day, and everything else. You know, fourth of the times have been asked to lower. The flags have been for mass shootings five or six parkland alone. I'm damn tired of lower and flags. We got kind of a deeply philosophical here for a while. But I'm gonna end it. Yeah. On a on a lighter note, we end the show each week talking about one thing. We just can't let go of outside of the political world. What what does that for you right now? So probably what I can't let go of outside of the political world. It was Saturday. I was in Helena. It's called the governor's Cup. This big race people from all around the state, and actually, we had forty different. States representatives from forty different states. Thousands of people show up. And both my twelve year old and my fourteen year old beat me in the five k. Here's how I'll try to salvage that one is that I ran the half marathon. And what I've done since they were little head run the half, then I run with them and try to just push them along and say, come on kids. Yeah a little bit further. So I got done with the half, and then it's time for the five K H just left me in the dust and that. Since they are born. So that's something I just can't let go of feel like if I just run a half marathon did rather, as everyone would. Copied anybody else in. That's probably a good testament.

"Unless there's a drastic shift on the bench. You've got an F E C that's been paralyzed for years and years. You've got a congress that there's a chance we'll still be led on the Senate side by Mitch McConnell who has spent decades opposing most campaign finance reform bills. There is a lot in place that would block any sort of reform. Going forward. What is your plan to get some clear accomplishments on campaign, finance and dark money? Yeah, I in let's even take them stiffer, the, Mitch McConnell has been part of the core of trying to completely dismantle all regulation in money and politics. You talk about a number of issues, we can talk about, maybe what we could do on the court and things like that. So I was the only the only state in the country that passed did by executive order rule that said, if you want to bid for state contract, I'm not going to tell you that you can't spend in our elections, but you have to close every single dollar that you're either contributed or spending to influence our elections. Think about what a difference the federal government contracts with dang near every company in the country. We've got them in federal court right now on the same day that Trump was with Putin in Helsinki, secretary-treasurer said, well, we're getting rid of this little rule that requires five oh, one C four. These nonprofit that are spent a lot of their money in political activities that they no longer even have to collect the names of their major donors. It's real. It's been around since Richard Nixon. He's not the model at transparency. So now really Russian could give to one of these or the NRA, nobody would even know you. And we've also had the lawyer that created the citizens United case this guy out of Indiana's names. Jim Bob and the bop law firm has said that their whole effort is to dismantle every single bit of regulation. Over our elections. So that's any transparency and sunshine. That's any limitations on contributions..

"But on the other hand, it's not working for a whole lot of people. Yeah, I know that when I was growing up in the early seventies ninety percent. Thirty year old student better than the parents at age thirty today. It's half forty four percent of Americans not having four hundred bucks in their pocket in case of an emergency. And then they looked the political system. Washington DC seems either captured by inaction or big money. I think Donald Trump tapped into something where folks didn't think the economy and the political system was working for him. Now, I don't think he's made a bit better for any of those individuals. But at its core like in Montana. If I look at the voters had voted for Donald Trump and voted for Bullock, they don't agree with me on every issue are every position. But I think that fundamentally they believe that I'm gonna be fighting to try to make their lives better. And I'm actually recognize in part what their lives might be like, so I think that that's part of it really. So in this campaign, you've put a huge emphasis on dark money, the idea of corporate dollars making it into our elections at multiple levels. And so when we're looking at the country today, the world today, there, so many issues before us climate change healthcare is top of mind for many voters why for you is campaign finance that thing that you're focusing on. Not on because it's been more or less. What I've been fighting for since I got in public office. But I think it's also one of the most pressing issues to face all the other issues. I mean, the two that you mentioned climate change. I said that the first George Bush, George H W Bush said, will address the greenhouse effect from the White House effect. Here's a Republican president thirty years ago saying the we have to do something about climate change fast forward, thirty years, most Republicans candidate acknowledged that climate changes impacted by humans talk about healthcare. And yes, we've made strides since the Affordable Care Act. But we can't even negotiate. Drug prices, even though the federal government's actually largest purchaser, that is because of the what the incentive system in what money has done. Or when Lindsey Graham literally said, we've got to get this tax cut through the Trump tax cut that not only do one point six trillion dollars debt to our kids. Not only ended up a trillion dollars a stock buybacks last year. But he said we have to do that, to make our donors happy. So I don't think I don't think like if you walked down the street in Sioux City, most people are saying, you know, what the biggest issue out there is the cross of influence of money in our system. But what they would say is this Connie's not working for me in Washington DC, doesn't seem to give damn about me, so on campaign finance reform. Let's, let's go into the future. What however long it is until the general election on you win the nomination. You win the general election, your the president of the United States. And here's what you're facing your face because supreme court that it is very unlikely we'll change its view on campaign finance reform..

"Steve Bullock is a second term governor from Montana. Governor governors and presidents senators don't governor of a red state quite so he won even as Trump won in his state. I'm telling you is that dark horse, obviously continues to flower every day before the days over the maybe Twenty-three running the Democrats. I'd never know miniseries. Watching all those debates when they when they get up there. AM seven sixty talk and breaking news. Coming up after the bottom of the hour provided the visit port meeting in Dallas. American astronaut legend icon. General Tom Stafford just Google Thomas p Stafford guys got a museum named crimen Weatherford Oklahoma where I'm going to be this weekend for the fiftieth anniversary of Apollo tin. And it's it's quite a life story in the guy is in his late eighties. Among other things he to Germany missions and Apollo polygon and that which was fifty years ago like this weekend. Launch date was may tenth. But it was a dress rehearsal for the manned moon landing. The first with Neil Armstrong, and Buzz Aldrin. Mike Collins about stairs. If you will in the command module back in July, sixty nine. Dacia these we're doing big launches as a nation, Saturn five rockets three hundred sixty three liquid fuel projectiles built by the lowest bidder doing that. Every two months. Yeah. You know, what's interesting about a lot of these guys too many of them because they were in the space program. Their friends were going off and fighting naval aviators, for example, in the jungles of yet nam and a lot of these guys including many of the moon walkers who have been honored to be able to know personally over the years. In moments where they kind of reflect they say, you know. Yeah, we did get to go to the moon. But but my buddy was down there getting shot at overhead Noyer, whatever really amazing to just see how the they deferred to kind of like the gully by just went to the moon. Really? That's kind of a big thing too. And they'll also point out the men and women the four hundred thousand plus Americans, many of them here in southern California that got to where they're going got got us there those manned landings and. Did it with what John Kennedy said, and they also really have great respect for John F Kennedy. I do to the way he had the space program. We're going to do it by the end of the decade, and do it successfully. Right. One of my favorite lions from his big speech at Rice University. Was we're going to do it. He's talking about American exceptionalism. We're gonna do it with things that haven't been invented yet. I mean, how cool is that? It wasn't like we're going to do. We have a fifty eight panel study that we did do a lot of studying then than there were government subsidies and incentives and so forth. But now, of course, the talk this week NASA said provided politicians don't screw up budgets as politicians. Do do it again in the next few years. Go back to the moon because the work is just beginning. There we visited six times in terms of actual landings and didn't exactly exhaust everything. Right. Didn't we? You've talked to the guys as I do the astronauts walked on the moon. That's four remaining still with us out of the twelve and they'll joke this when people say, oh, let's go back to the moon. There's there's there's minding there's all kinds of other science, and they'll say, yeah, we were there. We we covered every into the place. They'll just laugh about it. Because it was a start on a good start has been fifty years of. I. So all of that history matters. Unfortunately, your kids and grandkids went remember, maybe you have not been taught this, which is why we have a chance we'll talk about it. We get a chance to talk to some Tom Stafford who you're gonna love, and he is truly an American hero. He'll try after the bottom of the hour here on AM seven sixty talk and breaking news to find out about the event, we're doing this weekend, which is also down on Stanford museum dot org.

"Canarian candidate? Folks, who are who would say things like one county chairman who said, you know, I'm seventy seven years old myself. I understand the limitations. I have once I've gotten older, and my, you know, I don't think it's best for a party candidate who. And of course, you have there's a handful one of the one of the people in our stories a twenty six year old county chairman in Dallas county, Iowa Des Moines, and he was talking about how Hillary Clinton campaign at the bowling alley in twenty sixteen that aids demanded that he turn the lanes off. So that she wouldn't be tempted into bowling and embarrass herself by betraying up poor bowling. Well. Smith and Dallas county was saying that. Important for Democrats that have a candidate who they don't have to worry about. They can have Boll and not endorsing cells. We're speaking with Reid. Epstein Wall Street Journal reporter, he's written a piece entitled Iowa Democrats say they want generational change. So if that means generally as you referenced before Joe, Biden, Elizabeth Warren Bernie Sanders might get the thumbs down from these democratic county chairs in Iowa who does that open the door for one name that we heard a lot from people that they're interested in seeing is is better or work. The Texas congressman who narrowly lost the Senate race Ted Cruz. Cory Booker Kamala, the senators from New Jersey and California, we're both in Iowa in October campaigning for local candidates and made very good impressions couple of the people who have been an Iowa and then have done well for themselves. There are some in the next year Kennedy or Senator Jeff Merkley more than and Montana. Governor Steve Bullock. But the field is as we say in the story as wide open as it has been in generations there. Twenty six out of state candidates who have already been Tyler since the two thousand sixteen election. Well, that doesn't include Alexa, Mike Bloomberg who is there on Tuesday. One is up into. And so you're. You know, it's it's possible. There could be as many thirty candidates who launch presidential campaigns in the state sometime next year is that just Democrats are all parties, just Democrats. Wow. It's shaping up to be the biggest primary sealed in the recent memory of sort of anyone who's been through this. Now, you know, it's not history suggests that feel that large wall should break up into tears be a first year of, you know, six to ten out of serious real candidates. And then you'll have some other sort of more candidates, but we learned anything after the two thousand sixteen campaign. That's that a lot of the bills. So we've lived by in presidential campaigns. Don't quite anymore. We're all learning. Fly. Nice read Wall Street Journal reporter Reid. Epstein. Twenty minutes now in front of the hour on This.
