"The three of us are the only ones I believe that are registered to vote in the city of Chicago. Oh, you are too. And I am. So it's just Elliott, Mike. That's right. Oh, you guys are outnumbered. Why do I think of you as being in the suburbs? Eric because that's that's where I grew up hail. He has a suburban mentality. So let me ask our Chicago. Instead I'll start with Ken since he's on the line. Welcome to the show. Ken. How're you doing? Baseball tomorrow. Tuesday. What could be better on WGN? So what what could be better? Well, if you follow Roger badesch, you'll see that. He he's been counting down not only up until pitches and catches, but he also was counting down and now until opening day is that Roger that is correct. And we love seeing that so go to his Facebook page, and you'll be able to see those great images. And the reason why you thought Eric was not registered the city is because he's a Republican. I'm not saying anything you try to vote won't count here. It depends who you vote for daily you will count bigly bigly or somebody else. It will not now I met Bill Daley the other day in our green room in the PG paints green room, and he was running the casting Scott, the he's got the look of if I was doing a movie or television show we needed Casamayor. It'd be like that guy with the big head. The eyebrows. I might chimney our rows. But yeah. Couplings? I definitely had cufflinks. I don't know if you had a pinkie ring or not that might have had it. How did he smell the Cologne on? Did he tried not to Smith at? Yeah. Trans- smell people can as you know. I texted you right away. And I was teasing Bill Daley for doing the Roe Conn show and yet saying no to our show. And then I said, well, you know, we're carried in thirty eight states and Canada to which his his press guy said, well, they don't vote in Canada for Chicago elections, and I go well, she wants apple Chicago is your goal then. All right, then whatever to build a actually as you know, person that I've already voted for probably. But I I does giving a break because it appears that Tony I authored the soda tax the most popular tax history of Chicago technical appears to be slipping. I well, I think that I was saying earlier it seems like every week somebody either is pulling ahead or behind or has some flubs. Toni preckwinkle has had some unforced errors as my husband would say this week starting on Monday. I don't actually I think it's been more Lori Lightfoot sweet to half. Because there do you think that comes from preckwinkle campaign feeling threatened in some way by Lightfoot is that what the whole sort of Justice? My guess is Lightfoot probably wouldn't have had that much coverage. You know, she had that press conference. She may have had a story or a little coverage. But the fact that she got engaged on an issue, and that became the story. And so everyone covered it because it was such a heated exchange in an almost very personal. But do you think that the Lori and practical practical kind kind of going head to head helps any of the other candidates like Mendoza who didn't really necessarily jump into the fray or anyone's defense or say anything about even the Scott Cizek situation on practical campaign in a post that he made in order to sort of reference part of Lightfoot career. Do you think it helps her or Tico or Vallis? Do you think? You know, I think you know, if if Tony is losing votes they've got to go somewhere. And are they going to go to Lightfoot, maybe some of them are? But they've got to go somewhere. And I think Suzanne Mendoza's going to pick some up. I think she's had a strong week. I think a lot of this was kind of put in place by the poll that came out last week where there were five people who were pretty close anywhere between fourteen percent nine percent. And it was Tony and then daily, and then Suzanne and Chico and Lightfoot or no Lightfoot, then she go. So they were all like nine ten eleven twelve thirteen fourteen. So you realize like any one of those with a little push could get in the top two. So yeah, you know, so Susan I think is helped by this to Elliott. Have you been watching developments? I've been listening to a lot of the debates. It's just astounds me that again. No, one really steps up, and is the obvious choice in my opinion. I was listening to one of the debates that the w w I was listening. I'm going I wish I were on that panel. Because I know I can never run for mayor. But I know I'd give it a win that debate. Because it seemed like they didn't want to answer the questions get having in hind going back and forth instead of answering the question going after their opponent for whatever reason, and it was it was just frustrating listening to them. It's like you're just waiting for someone to step up and say, this is me, I'm your person. And this is because the best debate already happened back in December at the center with the moderator from WGN radio was there. Was there? So so Elliott. If they were going after their opponent were they open any new lines of attack or was was it repeated attack lines? You've already heard stuff that you'd hurt. Because at this point the only sense in doing that is if you have a whole new line of attack potentially to crack open on an opponent and start a line of thread on that on an issue in generate negative stories on someone with a new a new line. Otherwise, no one's really gonna cover it. And it's just a wash at that point. You might as well, just, you know, talk about how awesome you are. Well, I am awesome. But right. I mean, I'm not sure that there's a whole lot left to be said, I will say this. I almost losing sleep because I'm so excited. This.

"The easiest place to get and answer to question about why he's not running. Yeah. That he was going to bail after if you've got it again now that he's got bail. But he didn't have the four years plus of energy left in August. So so he lays out in the podcast what he's going to do for the first month after which includes fishing in the rivers of Alaska. Do you have that clip play that may twentieth next? Mayor may twenty-first buddy of mine are the first couple of days. We're going to go clockwise, and we're gonna right seventy five miles a day and finish the entire circumference circle. Ter- I'm going to go around like Michigan. I UP. I want to see the whole thing. I just wanted to cool seventy five miles a day which marked it out thirteen days. Number two. That's the one friend who was my roommate where I started at all in Little Rock, Arkansas. Yeah. Never to come back about four or five friends. We're going to go up opening day and do fly fishing in Alaska. You know, the idea of drowning. In a river in Alaska, pretty entertaining. I didn't think grandpa Herman moved from Romania. Louis circle if you see Rahm on a bike or carrying a fishing rod. He's not doing like an Opie impression exactly catches be one thing. He's going to have a second thing. But that requires the judges from your Chicago Tribune and the Sunday spin now celebrating its sixth year on the air. Hey, good morning. Congratulations on all these years of getting up earlier than we do on Sundays to tell us. What's happening? Well, it's a lot of fun. It's a great show. And I think it's an educational show too. I really enjoy doing it. Thank you so much. I wanna plug it. Still working on the guest list is because it's still kind of an evolving evolving situation. But I do have one of my tribute and colleagues John Byrne that's part of the city hall crew will obviously be going through the latest in the ever ever shaping mayoral race. What race it's become? It's funny because everyone seems to be flinging dirt at the other candidates today announced that Ken Griffin's given a million dollars to build daily that was quickly here. Come a lot of ads and things from Suzanne Mendoza's campaign and others. What do you make of Ken Griffin giving money to what essentially is maybe the front runner for the democratic? The seat that is the mayor of Chicago Griffin. Who's the richest man in the state? We've kind of been waiting throughout this to see where is the business community going to go into this race. And obviously, you know, very important of political factor of funding factor here, and it's kind of been wait and see because there's been no real clear established front runner in the race. Now, we have Griffin jumping in with a million dollars to build daily dailies already raised seven and a half million dollars. You literally can't turn on the TV without a Bill Daley. No excuses kind of ad. I mean, he's definitely benefited from having the money in the resources to get on TV. The question is in Mendoza is bringing out today at your mother's Ken Griffin gave Bruce around or thirty six million dollars institute runs for governor. And we've already seen signs of people trying to paint candidates as being kind of the Republican stalking horse in a democratic race. Even though officially it's a non partisan election. So you've got daily to play some defense there, and truly, you know, much as we've seen over the last few years and the evolution of democratic politics. Is this race coming down to what we thought it would be establishment candidates versus non traditional candidates. And the only thing is it's not like well this person. Hey is the establishment candidate this person is the nontraditional candidate with more than a dozen candidates field? Everybody's got a little slice of the pie here. And I still think you know, when it comes down to it we as of today even with early voting open undecided. Probably wins right now. I decided does seem to be strong. And frankly, undecided has been really good in the debates. Now, here's the deal that it's hard to wrap your head around. Not only is no one's gonna come close to avoiding a runoff here. But second place could be ten percent. Eleven percent twelve percent, which means at eighty eight percent of those voting in Chicago don't want you to be mayor. It's bizarre. Yeah. I mean when you kinda look I'm kind of figuring anywhere between fourteen to sixteen percent are the top two finishers. And you know, what does that say about the rest of the electorate, and you know, there's a lot of places now that have been examining somewhere even practicing kind of this method of voting where you not only pick your choice your first choice, but you pick your second and third choice. And so if you don't have an established, you know fifty percent, plus winner on a first choice, then you throw in the second place votes of those who didn't make the top run off. And and so you might be something to look at because you know, truly to put the plates where we have a runoff election in the two candidates combined in that runoff only one third support of the city. What does that say? We like to just see that could just amount to a lot of problems down the road. Rick. I wonder strategy wise for these candidates if if everyone knows that they need to get that sliver of votes try and get into the top two. So they changed their approach to how they campaign. Well, I think it's something that's big ego from the very beginning at the start. No one's gonna get fifty percent. You play for second place. I mean, you you literally try to play a niche game. Granted you want to get as many votes as you can that. That's absolutely. But then you look to where your strengths are in those were those strengths appeal to you know, various niche communities, and so, you know, that's why people looked at Dorothy Brown when she got off the ballot and endorsed my Ranya that you know, there's any kind of the anti-establishment candidate, but the Browns and establish person. She's as strong support in the African American church community. Quite frankly, I see that perhaps benefiting somebody like Willie Wilson. More than more than Miranda. At all. I mean, I it's all of these kinds of niches that are going on in that makes it more essential than anything. And that's something that we're not going to see is is what is what is the apparatus behind the scenes? What is the turnout apparatus? Yeah. We always say, you know, elections come down to turnouts. But in a tight close race like this were mere percentage points are the difference between candidates it matters more than anything else to get your supporters out to vote. You mentioned Tamara and yes interesting because she seems to be showing up in the newspaper regularly about little scandals. Whether it be about her finances are in her personal finances and her past sometimes yesterday had a piece about how she listed herself as an iron, man competitor. And she hadn't done a standard iron. It's a lot of little stuff. That is putting that seems to have grabbed the media's attention about her past. I wouldn't say it's all little stuff. I mean, we had a story in the Tribune about the fact that sheets deliberately underpaid her federal income taxes and deliberately underpaid them and chose to do. So even releasing copies of her last tax forms knowing that what she was giving the media unreported income when you're dealing with the city with the huge financial problems facing any other candidate has difficulty personnel with their own personal finances as well as difficulty being transparent. You know, I think that's that's a pretty substantive thing. Would would there be talk of her because it's sometimes think frankly felt really petty because you know, she she did something that wasn't a full ironman. She did something that everybody calls an iron man, that's less than ironman, who cares. So I don't have a horse in the race here literally. But she's polling way down the list. Is it the chance the rapper tie? That's creating attention from other places. Yeah. Absolutely that and the, you know, and your donation, I mean, one of her financial issues was the fact that, you know, technically, she even though she had previously ended up didn't really distinguish yourself. But you never filed the state's Nanteuil disclosure reports. She had somebody three thousand dollars fines on those that would have kept her off the ballot of ninety western put the money into to pay for those fines. I mean, I just think you know, if we're going to talk about a city that's kind of on the precipice and Lord knows we're gonna get more taxes. We've got pensions to pay a crumbling infrastructure as we now from what happened on the drive. I mean, we've got a lot of issues to deal with and I think a person's ability to handle their finances is certainly that's all fair game. And and part of the. Background that we look at. Her response is great though, her response was you don't have to you know, the other candidates who have been millionaires had money. They have their their finances, personal finances haven't stopped us from being on the brink of financial collapse and talking about the candidates. They're in office. Now, I thought that was an insurer spots. Well, and I think too and that kind of predicted it if she would say since he's appealing for that youth boats. You know, you have plenty of younger people struggling under the burden of student loans, those kinds of things and she kind of appeal to that and saying, well, you know, I I I didn't show choose to go into a high any profession and I'm struggling with debt issues. Just like the people she's trying to appeal to the podcast of the Maria's today as well. He dresses the infrastructure thing. And and the the absolute the tax it's coming to pay for things that's all in the podcast as well. All right before I let you go. My costume sermon is any of the tough mayor in Chicago to handle an out of control all dramatic situation. It's never been more apparent than it has in the past couple of months. I don't see anybody in this field that isn't either agenda tied to the alderman as they stand or to be willing to stand up to the alderman at a time where they Pierce that the inmates are running the asylum. So what happens there? Well, there's a there's a couple of things here in one his we may see a significant kind of shake up in the all dramatic races. I mean, there's more people running for alderman than at any time since I think we even started with the nonpartisan election. So I think there's a chance for some significant shake out there to I'd also say listen to those candidates, and you don't get to be a candidate for mayor. You know, you know, big way unless you have some ties to establish, and of course, those establishment figures, they can they can help you. They can hurt you were seeing with the Birkin Sali's. But you know, there are some of these candidates for mayor. They're talking about ending all the manic privilege, and that's the ability that all and control zoning in their ward. And that creates a, you know, a significant issue of potential conflict between developers giving money to all dramatic candidates. That goes around way. Ending automatic cripple. It would be very interesting reform, especially when you look at the fact of issues involving Edberg and tax appeal worked and Danny Sali's wearing the wire, and he was head of zoning council..

"Have a little bit of extra time before we go to closing statements. We're going to do a little lightning round you folks on the campaign trail sold long and seeing each other. And so many cases, you probably know each other better than some of you know, your spouses, so my question is and we're going to start with Mr. McCarthy, go route. If he couldn't vote for yourself who would you vote for this? Tough one. I didn't hear the last part. So I'm going to say my wife, Kristen. What's your name? That's tough question. I think I think I would go with the Mara. MR is green party. Is that a dozen? I think Gary learned for me, I said Amara last time. So Tony Frederick today. Oh. Thank you. I'm not gonna try to offend Tony here. But I will not vote for anyone who entered the race after Rahm Emanuel dropped out. Okay. Do you have a pick Paul? I'm that's my pick. I'll just do like Chicago politics. Do I get myself? Another name revolt for myself. This man, he says I say. Chica? Could vote for yourself about four. No, I I would vote for marina. Popular choice, Bill Daley. Lori Lightfoot is his choice. Missa miranda. Who would you vote for? So I would actually echo Paul. I would have to use an arbitrary measure because there are a lot of solid candidates. But the date of whether you were willing to challenge the incumbent is really important to me. Lori life. It I'm gonna some just like a Marin Paul look we have a lot of challenges in the city and the challenges were exactly the same the day before Rahm Emanuel got out the day. He got in and the day after I think if you care about our city, and he believed that you have a vision to lead then you jump into the fray before Goliath Slade. So it's disqualifying in my mind, and I have a lot of respect for people who did jump in after. But that's the line of demarcation. All right. We have forty five seconds each for the candidates to make their closing arguments. If you will speak directly to the voters about you. And why you Willie Wilson we'll begin with you. This is the last time last time, forty five seconds. Final pitch to do what I do best. And we thank you forgot. We thank you for this day. We thank you. Of people who allow us to come here on this special day that you may Melissa zone. Atas maybe give it leave here and go home. There we go home tonight. Deloitte, changing around us guy. That's the way we can wake up tomorrow morning. Teaches Lord to to love one. Another guys. How thing comes up today? We thank you for your bracing. Emerson your kindness. Take care of all God is home tonight. Jesus. Name we pay for his. Exactly a minute. Thank you. Let's go to Gary, Chico. Same question. Forty five seconds your closing argument. My roots are in the neighborhoods and streets to this city. And I'm very proud of my family heritage in the work ethic that they gave me I've used that work ethic to lead in every government assignment. I've been asked to serve in. We have we brought community policing the city to make our city safer. We made the Chicago public schools a model for the nation at it's time to do it. Again, we can do it again. And I want to lead and I want to make this city. I'm the attornal optimist. I believe this city's best days are ahead of it. We have to deal with the corruption. We've talked about we have to take the Chicago public schools and a bigger direction starting with vocational and technical education, and we have to do it all while we're not breaking the backs of our working families. They're not eight lazy. They're not ATM machines for lazy government, Bill Daley. I will be honored if you would vote for me and could be the mayor city, Chicago, I grew up in the city. I know the city I love the city is about my life around politics and government, but not as part of it on a day to day basis. We have enormous problems. I do believe we have a great city. We've got to address some issues that we've talked about tonight. Are you all know? And I think it's time that we begin to structurally do some things differently. As I as I have laid out around governing the city ethics issues. No doubt about it. We've got address them aggressively. We also have to bring hope to people in neighborhoods that. I have not have have had hope and at the same time keeping our economic growth, if we slow there if that slows down the ability to do all those great things we talk about who will not be able to be done by any mayor of the city Amara. We are at a crucial time in the city's history where we can determine the direction not just for next year. But for the next couple of generations, and what we need is visionary leadership with new ideas. Better ideas, that move us forward on the challenging issues that we face we need excitement and enthusiasm about the kind of government that we deserve the people want the right kind of experience that is broad based. I've worked in government. I've worked in the nonprofit sector in the public sector at the grassroots level. We need that well-rounded perspective to really understand the systemic nature of our issues. But most importantly, we need the right values values of equity values of Justice values of our shared progress. It is those values that will try to the future with the optimism. That's necessary to execute our plan. Thank you, Lori Lightfoot. What people all over the city have told me since may of two thousand eighteen when I got into this race is that they want government who hears them who sees them. And they wanna leader who listens. What people have also told me is they want a change from the past. They want a new direction in a new vision. This is the first competitive election that we're going to have in the city since one thousand nine hundred eighty six when Harold Washington ran for a second term. We truly do have the opportunity to speak our values, but the difference is going to be this. If you want change, but you're was resigned that the status quo is going to prevail than the status quo will prevail. And you've got an Allah cart menu of choices for that. But if you were with me, and you will resolve to vote your values to bring to the to the polls and make a difference than we can make profound change in the city. Join with Gary McCarthy, honesty, integrity. Truth telling and leadership has to be restored to city government. The distrust that exists as far as government goes here is overwhelming, and we accept it. The Chicago way has to end we have to bring management to government we have to manage resources. We have to make tough decisions and they're not political decisions. Those are reality based decisions we need to move this city forward with integrity. Until we do that nothing is going to change here. And you're not going to change what's happening here. Unless you change the people the bottom line is the things that we've been doing has not worked we need values, and our government, we need the government to serve the people and not the other way around. Suzanne Mendoza PM so excited about the potential for our city. And that's why I firmly believe that this election is about the next generation and not just the next four years and the one candidate here who knows how to navigate the ins and outs of getting legislation passed in Springfield more than anybody else. And that will be an important skill set to have in your next mayor lost. So as I said earlier managed to stay through the worst fiscal crisis in its history and been able to take on a governor who is intent on hurting our finances, a governor that actually one of my candidates here. Mr. daily was the chairman of his transition committee. We don't need more of that we need to actually focus on the problems of the city, and it's not like passing sawing off. Assets like our parking meters. But actually, putting the people of Chicago, I I'm you good. That would you like a Donut clear agreed to coacher his transition as he democrat because I believe when someone wins the election is over we should join together enact continue the BS that goes on in politics and help by governor. He did not turn out what any of us many of us thought he would be teachers. Jay Pritzker, pick Republicans on his transition team. Did you attack him for? No. Of course. Not. But I I was busy taking. Quiet without you respect. What was that? I was busy taking him on. Okay. Houston Tyler and everyone while we're still on the broadcast, Toni preckwinkle closing argument. I'm a teacher by profession. I spent ten years in the classroom. And I think it's really critical for the for the health of thriving our city that we have great neighborhood school. Put a lot of energy in the last year's around magnet schools and selective. Enrollment schools in schools and we've got to invest in neighborhood schools. Every kid has the right to go to a great neighborhood school. And right now, you can pretty much predict the quality of education that's available to young people by the zip code. They live in just like you can predict their life expectancy. So we have to invest in neighborhood schools. We cannot have a strong city. We cannot have a vital thriving city without strong neighborhoods, and we can't have strong neighborhoods without strong neighborhood public schools. Paul vallas. I figure through all these forms. I've been to I've I've I've been able to speak for about. An hour and fifteen minutes think about that for a second one minute answers ninety second answers. Look, I am beyond. I do not have the capacity to speak in slogans or to Mike. All I have the capacity to do is to offer real substantive solutions to complicated problems. And I've done it from the beginning. Someone joked that every time I open my mouth a white paper. Also. Well, yes, it does. Because I'm not going to be condescending. You have got to do your homework here because you're going to be inundated with commercials, not by me, and you're going to be inundated with these one minute answers. This election is about substance. This election is about real solutions to complicated problems. And at the end of the day. We're all going to have to do our homework to make the right choice folks today. At a time when our city is going through a difficult period. When people don't have a lot of faith in politics. If nothing else. You have choices here. Here's the parolee clear differences. Positions. I'd courage all of you do voters to to go on their websites and do research yourself. I also urge you to devote vote early tee what? But only once it's still Chicago only once and visit Crain's Chicago business and WGN radio, we do have a rundown of all of the candidates for the purposes of broadcast. We just want to wrap things up here, although publisher Jim Kirk will have some closing remarks right after that. But thank you for the candidates for participating tonight. Thanks to.

"Burn Friedrich which is the most important of the nineteenth century. Please meach. He was a chauvinist pig was in love with his sister. He was not a chauvinist. But he was in love with his sister. I don't know what the Mark Brown. Thanks for. We'll get to that time permitting. But I can tell you join the sometimes back in eighty two McCollum since two thousand is a deadline artist. You can follow him on Twitter at Mark Brown C S T, and he along with his colleague, France Spielman, and others broke this huge story regarding. Well, of course, we all heard about Edberg. And of course, then Danny Salinas, all of a sudden, boom that was a big story. And I thought is Danny Sali's patient zero in this. And now it turns out Mark welcome back to double Diaz. I need to learn more about see why Wong was he patient zero the feds catch him or did he go to the feds and say, I think I'm getting shaken down here. Clue he was caught in something. We don't we still have quite figured that one out yet. And whether he's patient zero or not we can't we're not even entirely sure that, but he's he certainly was there at the beginning of this particular branch of this investigation, which which you know, is starting to look like a whole forest. So he was the beginning. Mr. on a Cheney's American businessman who was a developer in Chinatown. And then now comes word that Mike Madigan is kind of picked up a nurse in an answer. Larry sort of way, as he's been picked up on some FBI, water, water, tapes tapes wire taps, and now also it turns out Sali's and this year latest story in Chicago. Sometimes he was paying himself for services rendered did that involve massage parlors or Viagra. I don't believe that either. I don't think that's what he was paying himself for. But I don't think he had to say what he was paying him. So for whether the GRA. In the massage. Parlours a allegedly were procured for him by a a friend government consultant type gay who. Was representing a city contractor. Yeah. So juicy story when you to involve a massage parlours, payoffs writing yourself checks out of your political fund, and then even Oprah Winfrey kind of involved in it again in an ancillary sort of manner. She was just a pretty soon and appreciate those stories sent her name. And I'm sure she did not, but she's in a much warmer place away are nowadays is this just another great political corruption story in Chicago. Or does this one seem to have a little something extra? We believe this one has something extra. You know, we we haven't seen it in its totality yet. But our our own sense of it is that that this is the big one that this is clearly the government instead of just picking off some slumps, you know, at the bottom of the wrongs and city council have targeted the big guys. And whether they gotta my not, we don't know. But obviously, they've already charged alderman, Edward Burke the. They clearly had speaker Madigan in their Sates in this. You can argue whether or not what what we have seen described is a crime or not. Yeah. Those are those are the two biggies here. And then all Burke and Madigan, and then what mayoral candidates are most exposed in your mind. Trek WinCo and twenty per coin Cohen Susanna Mendoza. It's got the most obvious problems along with Gary, Chico. A goal was actually. Cited in in the Burke. Charges and that. Shook down these businessmen for allegedly strict on these businesses for ten thousand campaign contributions to her plus she had he had hosted a fundraiser for her at his home. Suzanne Mendoza goes way back with Burke, she had her wedding at the Burke home, if you think it's possible if Mendoza and prankul take each other out that this is Bill Daley's to lose. You know, when this thing started, I didn't really think Bill had a serious shot. Now. Looking at and going he could do to me too. And if he gets to the run off, you know, I think our numbers are shown that he would be preckwinkle. Yeah. I saw that. I saw that. I talked about it yesterday. Mark. Thanks so much for your time. Enjoy reading in the sun times and hope to have you back one other question did Nici love his sister. Yes. Or no. No, okay. Thank you. So put you down as a no that's Mark Brown of the Chicago Sun-Times, Kathy. How's your day going so far? Thanks for joining us on WLS. Well, I'm glad I made my phone calls yesterday because my landline is out and my internet. Oh, no. Are you going to be able to get by without the internet? I'm trying. Power is a real situation. Sean saieed one of our associate producers here, I think his parents were without power for the better part of last last night, Georgia next up on wwl. Go ahead, sir. Yeah. Out here watch Chico. So talk about a good deed. Basically I woke up with that. So I didn't wanna lament too much, but the girlfriend calls me. So I'm going to bring over the heater and pictures or easier to work out by this time tomorrow, we'll hear another. We'll hear another horrible story about a space heater. I'm sure as well. So be careful you're space heater. Well, yeah. So I had to go pick up the plummeted personal fights because his truck broke. So I had to drive him both ways. Frozen and miles is still frozen pipes and going both ways. Well, this calls. Take an interesting turn. Thank you, George appreciated. John. Welcome to double their, sir. Go ahead.

"And the office of emergency management originally. Excuse us cold as ice. Originally stood by that decision and said that they would be back out there this afternoon at two-thirty. Well after reporters started questioning it as well as the crossing guards union this afternoon. The city backed down and said the crossing guards do not have to stand out there this afternoon on a day of tomorrow right was close tomorrow to presumably. He wouldn't have had to be out there this morning. Oh boy. So. Oh. City that works. My friends the city that you know, what sometimes been had always we're finding that out more and more every day to build the hotel a hotel in Chinatown for half off. Great again, zoning got brand new brand new Kozani comes with a free contract to rebuild. The eisenhower. He's like you gotta hair a couple of key individuals in the project. You will mean a lawyer though. Got a couple of property taxes. I'll be thirty to resume, and whatever we don't want this to be a one time killing this to be a long term relationship for you know, now that was part that term Ben is taking directly out of the legal papers that surround the Mike Madigan disclosure yesterday by the sun times, it Mike Madigan might have been caught on a wire as well. And that it's interesting that they're using the word they were very everyone's picked up on that part of the story that I don't want this to be a one time killing I want this to be a long term relationship. I think that the fed put that in this document, very specifically to let Mr. Madigan now that they really were listening to him because he will recognize those words. Yeah. Very specific language, and let's be fooled. The feds are very specific and very particular about what they decide to put in those affidavits Indian those fines every. Reward of it as we're seeing the mother investigation. Right. Absolutely, very specific nothing accidents. But here, it's even more mean, you think of the wealth of information they have eighteen thousand phone calls alone with alderman Sali's six years of what people wearing wires. They could've put anything in that. I mean, but you're right. The things they chose very intentional. I I always try to judge the depth or breadth of a case based on how high in the alphabet we go in these government filings talking about individual a individual individual. I think we're on individual g. Yeah. So I love are. You surprised at all by a little bit of the lukewarm reaction from some elected officials about that revelation. Nothing surprises me anymore. And you know. It his defense. What what's B pitzer? You're gonna say, right. He's two weeks into a brand new job where he hopes to work with Mike Madigan, Mike Madigan. Of course, you wanted him to be governor. He was a dream candidate. Because he came self-financed for the Democrats. And you know, but we do see how quickly those things change Burke, originally, you know, those first couple of hours even day or two people were standing by. And there was a thought. Okay. This is this could is could blow over but then very quickly. We saw him lose that chairmanship the finance committee. The details start to emerge, and then people started to talk to other people because I think that it's possible. The people from the law enforcement side may also indicate to people in power structures. This is the this is far more since this is a far more serious situation. Then people are letting you might wanna know that it doesn't end the other interesting thing on the timing of it. Why I think for example, he had Burke as? You're seeing a lot more public conversation about by political officials is because you have its relation to the to the mayoral race. Right. All of a sudden, you've got Suzanne Mendoza and Toni preckwinkle Bill Daley, Gary Chico and others being forced as they're trying to campaign to answer these questions where I think if this occurred it preps a different time of the year. You would have seen these politicians conveniently step out of the spotlight for a little bit. Themselves available for news conferences that they got him. You wouldn't have had the momentum. Right. You would have had the public momentum. All right. Gary Chico is going to join us today. As a matter of fact at four just remember that Gary with one in an in an e don't confuse to ours. Does he win the award for the heartiest mayoral candidate for coming out in this weather? Yes, he does. He does. We couldn't get Dorothy Brown out here. I don't want. That's right. That's what you're gonna get. All right. All right. Thank you very much better appreciated today. Him Gordon's news coming.

"Loves the city with all its heart. But most importantly, I want to be the mayor. They make sure that every person who lives in Chicago, no matter what color you are. Or where you live. What your economic status is knows that the city loves you back in. So I want to ask you one thing. A few become the automatic prerogative. I'm getting rid of it wherever I can. Essentially every alderman. It's like they can do whatever they want in their district. It's crazy. So now, let's put this caveat here. Right. I think it needs to disappear, but the problem with dramatic proactive is that some of it is codified into statute right and center. Some of it is done like by tradition. We're not gonna vote themselves. Now, of course, of course, not. But we're the mayor can curtail the automatic pregnant provocative directly. I will absolutely do that. And hopefully, there will be enough public pressure to begin to stem the tide on this automatic. And I'm gonna look into see if there's any other legal remedies that we can take that don't include the alderman voting themselves out of their own power. Because clearly they won't do that. But really there has to be a seismic shift in fighting corruption in the city, and the next mayor is going to have to lead on that. And I give you my word that I will God, you're tough tough, man. She's the one that most when they voted and of the candidates who is the one you most likely want to have a beer with. Does he really nice? But you know, what? I feel like the fact of the matter is I do love people people say, oh, you know, she's got a fun personality. But is there substance there, you better believe there's substance? There you go ask Bruce Rauner what he thinks about Susanna Mendoza's ability to get the job done in Illinois. And he's going to have nice things to say. And I take that as a major compliment. But you know, we would still be faced with billions and billions and billions of dollars more in debt. Had it not been for the job that I did with the most amazing team in the controller's office fighting for the people of this state. I am more than ready to step into this role as mayor and to lead the city not just for the next four years. But the next generation that's what this election about. It's about the future. I believe in the city's future. And I'm ready to take on this greatest challenge. Suzanne mendoza. Thank you for coming in on this Sunday. Thanks for having shouldn't everybody keep warm, right? Yeah. Susanna Mendoza dot com. If you want more check out our future now plan, and let me know what you take..

"Glad you made it from the forum in this weather. Well, it's great to be in the studio with Stephanie. Also, I wanted to update our pictures, we always take some self fees, and then we put them on social media. So it's still use pictures from six years ago or something from the studio, and I'm like certain pictures, you just need to retire. If it has the logo redone with the studio with all the dust thirty years at the top. Now, we're on new and fresh. So those pictures need to go, but as prayed all the time, so we. I'm here with Rachel Lawrence came down with me, we were at the mirror Miro forum on the northwest side, Republicans there Republicans on the northwest side, no way, why will anywhere in that room run for mayor while they were all Democrats at the former people hosting it with Republicans in their name. There's not one person in that room. That's that wants to be mayor of Chicago at least wants to run to get. Our message out heard you say earlier, you might move back to the city. So that is an announcement to move back. I can't afford to live here with the city stickers and the fees, and no I'd have to win the lottery, then I understand your mom's wedding dresses here. So maybe you could just claim residency, and then you could run feeding my wedding dress. I think, but I don't I don't know the case. You could just have something in a wedding dress in you're grandfathered in. So we were down there. It was John Khazar Willie Wilson was Sean Ford. Joyce. What's Joyce's first name, all Vallis? Bob, ready ready? So what was interesting Who Wasn't There? You know? No built in Jeremiah Joyce. Okay. Yeah. And no, no twenty Quaco. Nope. Daily and no. Who did I miss their Neil? Suzanne mendoza. Okay. No, Gary McCarthy interesting. So it's kind of it was a good forum. They I think someone called earlier and said Paul Vallas had kind of unusual moment they were doing. Yes. No questions, and he wouldn't say, yes. No specific question was would you if Donald Trump gave you twenty five million dollars for ice to command to go after criminal illegal aliens? Would you take the money, and it was kind of a mixed reaction? But well, I know you're in transit here. So you didn't hear his response to respond to that? Because someone did call in and challenge that he said he just wanted to say he doesn't need money to enforce the laws that that would save someone has a record. They need to be whatever held accountable. So he said he would need five dollars a twenty five million dollars to do his job. Yeah. I'm not sure people yelling and cheering and stuff. So. No, we need to get Justice attention to turn on just Mike and you have to get a little bit closer. Okay. There you go. We can hear you now. So but overall did they all perform really well was I'm sure Dan profit had anything to do with it. It was. He was pretty good. It was pretty good. What were you gonna say? Rachel is just going to say that you know, when he was actually asked that. Yes. No question. You know, there was a big uproar because he wouldn't get to the. Yes, or no. And then finally people were yelling after the crowd was yelling to I think there was a no because people were very upset, and they were he he didn't he wasn't following the rules video posted on your page later on this stuff neutral. So okay. I missed the good one. I don't know why. Sorry to interrupt. He tried to pull the cost of with the microphone to really, oh, he tried to take it back. Yeah. Sean Ford started saying that he would not allow him to speak and Leshan Ford a lot of people like you said, I'm not gonna let you speak if you don't answer. Yes. Or no. So it was pretty dramatic. I know that this is I will be streamed. I'm pretty sure that the organization will post this too. But you're going to post a video of it of. So again, lots of forums you've gone on Facebook. They're they're constantly holding forms an opportunity for you, not only to see the the people running for mayor. But also the people running for city council what we call alderman here. So if you again, they are they're always on Saturday at one o'clock or three o'clock when I'm prepping for my Maxine studio, so there's one tomorrow. I'm looking for what was weather holds out. I just I thought that we weren't going to be snow to Sunday night. So we're set in churches Trinity's Obama's former church. Trinity on this off just go on social media, either will Obama be there. I I don't have a crystal ball. I'm not sure if he'll be there. I don't think they want Obama muddying up this process. He's he he does live in DC. But I had somebody check voting records need did vote in the last election here. So he's claiming residency in Chicago. Which is interesting. Yeah, he'll run for something. Or maybe Michelle is going to run for Senate. You heard it here. First who knows? Oh my goodness. I'm ready for that stuff. Neutrons, social. Resigned journalists now if this is true, that's what journalists now say if it's true or possibly could be. There's nothing like the journalists of old where do you actually had facts? You couldn't just report something that might be true. And they'll be I've ever said if it's true if true this could happen tomorrow Ray. So anything else going on fifty two years ago today was he great Chicago blizzard. And I was there. January twenty six nineteen sixty seven so many of your listeners are out there. We just bringing that up as a memory, and we it was the biggest snowstorm. So the stuff we have today. And this is nothing Pearson. Right.

I think it was six hundred city vendors gave him seven million dollars, and they had reaped two billion dollars of city payments. Wow. Unbelievable. And all these I have to ask you to. This is this is a big bone of contention now with Toni preckwinkle and Susanna Mendoza those trying to distance themselves from campaign contributions from the likes of Edberg. Once those contributions are made, and they do decide to keep them that with these because Toni preckwinkle in Suzanne Mendoza said that they're giving these back, but when when money is donated to a political campaign, they get to keep that money the candidate. Correct win or lose. They don't get to keep it personally any longer. Change about fifteen or twenty years ago. There were people that were grandfathered in under that law change, and they do get to to keep their campaign funds and could take it personally. However, they do have to pay tax on it. There you go.

So I I heard you play Edberg the seventy five year old frappes, soon to be convicted politician also took to Instagram, which is kind of surreal. But now, I'm certain that you learned of yesterday's events on want you my friends and supporters to know that fully intend to seek reelection. So get out there and do your job and Toni preckwinkle has been swept up in this thing. She is dismayed shot. I am dismayed by Ottoman Burks apparent abuse of his position for personal gain. Breaking the public. Trust shocked shocked shocked shocked to find the gambling is going on in here alderman Burks apparent abuse of his position for personal gain. Does not reflect my values, and I do not condone. It does not reflect my values. Thank you very much. Everybody out at once the great John cast. Today's Chicago Tribune, a master politician picks up the government hammer given to him by the people as he pounds business owners until they hire him in a private deal. It's also very lucrative in simple capitalism. Squeezed through that city hall cheesecloth. It's been going on for decades decade after decade from the days of bath house, John and Hanky Dink Kenna through the years of the dailies NBA beyond John Cass. Welcome back to double the us to this get careless or senile or what? No, I think he's just got on the phone. You don't talk on the phone. I don't know. How to explain to these all for anybody? Anybody who saw the movie I told you thousand times you don't talk on the phone. You don't talk on the phone. There. He is on the phone on FBI tape. Petty McNamara testifying to it that complaint from the FBI that you know, he's talking to one of his political aides about squeezing a guy using the government to squeeze company. So then he gets a law license law business pathetic. But I I don't even know what's more pathetic bath or Toni preckwinkle getting up on her legs. Talking about how I choose the boss of the Cook County Democratic Party. I'm shocked shocked. Her body is a Berrios. Right. She she. I don't know. I don't know about this. Tony Parker legal man, thou. Protest too much misprint Quaco Madam President so back to a Mr Burke. And of course, he's going to have his day in court. But will there be a rod Blagojevich? Ed Burke, FBI wiretap box set out by next Christmas. I don't know. I don't even know if it'll if it gets that far he's gonna be in trouble, John cast, Chicago Tribune, what does it tell you that the FBI was already eased dropping on at Burke when this shakedown happened. Tells me that if I were friends of Ed Burke, I would be worried. Most worry about preckwinkle or some of the others who have been close to him. Oh, you mean in the mayoral campaign? All they're all pointing fingers preckwinkle screaming Mendoza's tidings. She's a Burke guy, and she's hiding like, oh Burke. I dunno Burke, who Burke. I. Gerry Chico is calling a wire. I mean, this whole thing is falling apart. Pathetic. Rahm emanuel. Ronda manual in his wisdom. Selects Pat O'Connor, we the chairman of the city council committee on finance. Right O'Connor, come from the same cloth. One of the last home machine. Guys. One of the guys I got a lot to say about him. If you read the Sunday Tribune. You might get a glimpse of it. I'm looking forward to it. And you're almost forty years of the Tribune now, obviously, a sitting governor Trump's say finance committee, chairman of the city council, but how how big is this do we put him in the pantheon of Chicago corruption assuming that it's going to be convicted who do we have to remove Fred Roti? Does he go does Walker go who goes, I don't know who goes, but I'd say that if Edberg goes down for this. It's it's really monumental is this bigger than Jesse Jackson junior. Aaron schock is this big in the Rostenkowski. Jesse jackson. Aaron schock is a guy who liked to look at his ads while he worked out who don't be serious. I don't know. Protests too much. But you know, I mean, Aaron shocks not a serious person. Jesse Jackson junior bought the elk heads stopped all kids. It's not serious. What about Fred Rodier? Fred Routier, William beavers. I liked I liked. I liked read a lot. You just did what do you do? It's all about Chinatown, Jake. I used to tell you that when I was at WLS, remember talk. It's Chinatown Jake. And that's what it is for bread late. But Burke is a serious deal because he's the spider in the web. What is the is there a deep? Enrich irony that this alleged fast food restaurant in the same one. That's featured in lukewarm. Mcdonald's video. No. But it's kinda no. But if you have I don't think that is anything to do with it. But I just like the idea that the hamburglar might be involved and what about both ads from the council wars for dole canal Burke being caught up in their own sort of situations. Supper issues. Right. Yeah. Issues. Ulta them were are smart politicians. It's it's hard to be one the one hand. I can't believe he's gonna go down from this on the other hand, I read the complaint, and I know people are saying, oh, he doesn't have anything to worry about. But I read the complaint the beds have you on. Hey, talking about using government is a hammer. So you can make money that's a problem. And and we're talking with the great Sean cash on the Chicago Tribune, formerly of double Delta's criteria back in the station. John, but the fact that they were already rolling tape before this was even brought up tells us that there's probably more to come. Well, I would just like to have Ed I'd like to Gary, Chico. Suzanne Mendoza and Toni preckwinkle like form like like a Peter Paul and Mary singing group. And sing about their virtues and how much they're they're above all this. Now, I'm known for an awful long time, and you know, other legends in that category. George Don, and Richard m Daley, of course, Richard J Daley how much do you think it stung at Burke over the last fifty years that he was never close to becoming mayor and that the dailies never allowed him his chance. I don't know. I think he's. I think he would have been. I mean, he knows about government. He understands he wouldn't have to get some outside, you know, outside brain to help him. And that's the problem with most of the crops the crops will people running for mayor. I mean, they they need some help right two or three. There's only two to three that. I think are bright enough to sit in the fifth on the fifth floor in the office fifth floor. Or those. Well, I would say that Vallis is a bright guy. I think Bill Daley has an awful lot of experience and may be one or two others. I like Gary McCarthy as a person I think he could really help with the police community relations. I think the thing about daily that gets me is the Obama was that the naming the Obama highway. Yeah, that's it was ridiculous. Like not that we should name everything after Obama. I'm not saying that we should. But the question was daily, where's your tax research, and he comes out with the Obama highway remain. And all the media. This town in this corrupt thoroughly go up and broken town. The media jumped on it. Oh, it's amazing. Oh, vaguely, Santiago. It'd been sick. Lori Lightfoot in here a couple of days ago, and she of course, she's very brand too. I agree and a and a she said, I'm releasing my tax returns and everybody should do the same. But I don't necessarily think that it's anybody's business. What kind of money I make except myself. And I've never called on any politician to obligatory released their tax returns, if they want to for their own purposes. So be it. I don't know when it comes to the dailies. I'd kinda wanna know everything because I want to see how much money. I mean, you mentioned this in your column today, if you get every favor in the book, and you never pick up a check what they all. Do you need money for cash? You know, I I don't know. I don't know. I think I think cash is freedom John catches freedom. And it's not about this deal. With Burke is not about, you know, greasy envelopes full of dead presidents. This is about a layered system in which the use the law. To make a fortune awful law reconcilable for a private business. It take for instance, says the best example, Ed Burks law firm to be able to do business with potential clients or people that have to go in front of the city. It's a clear conflict of interest. But I guess that's freedom. What do you think? It's not freedom. It's it's corruption. And it's the same thing that Madigan does if you're a lawyer, and you're and you're in public office make a decision either be for the public or make money on your Lauper. But you can't do both. I mean, come on. I liked it better. One the corrupt politicians were tavern keepers. Then you could go you can go back there and have a pickled pig's ear, you know, glass of beer, and you could hear some story, and you go down to the Coliseum was that on Wabash are south Michigan. And he could go to bath house. John and Hanky dings party. You could watch gorgeous, George the wrestler. John cast is this touch Bill Daley as he kind of separate. I don't think this touches Bill Daley. But the just the whole nature of all of this in the in the in the public, and the the the political classes contempt for the people of Chicago and how they talked about it like they're going to install old pedal. Connor is chairman of finance, really. Yeah. But what is it about Chicago? You know, you're right about you know, other Chicago way terrific podcast, by the way. But you're right about the Chicago way as long as I get my garbage taking care of my alley is plowed and my potholes are filled. I don't care if it's corruption for me. I'm worried about corruption across the street or at the next ward. People don't really worry about corruption across the street. What they want is corruption. That's why it's so corrupt. They want somebody that they can go to to get their dog out of the pound or get their brother a job or ruin their enemies on the corner or or take care of business issue. And all this stuff has a cost. You know, what the cost is so millions and millions of people of Chicago are moving India, and the others are leaving town going up Atlanta euro years ago that you saw and conservatively you thought there was a thirty thirty cents out of every dollar corruption. Charge here in Chicago. The basically thirty percent of our money our dollars right down the drain due to corruption. You know, you have you have government in your hand. And you can point it at anybody. You don't really need a gun or a nice to you know. Now, you don't know. That's why you know, I started covering politics in this town. I was rather liberal until I actually got to see how government actually works and how how the how the people's business is corrupted to make money for a few. Well sickening. Have you put the column for Sunday to better? Do you still have to work? I gotta do that. Now done the podcast. The Sunday column is coming denied. Sure. My editors you're listening to this. They're like why are you talking about? You gotta you gotta a deadline. Well, afterwards heaven is cocktail and try to sleep. Well, I will John good weekend. Hey, happy new year.

"Welcome back, Mark. I'm gonna say the words in my son. Every time Trump has a bad week. He said, he says mom, Holly extra boy that boy Mark Bronner. This is Shawn Miller park called them seven feet of stupid. What the heck why would he tell us this? Now, he's trying to protest in front of his house. I don't understand what kept this little secret to himself. And with the Florida would have been nobody's business. So he could could've asked genie is he wants to be governor who he primary there's been a lot of money to beat her. But he's worn around asking people as the greyhound bus stations the homeless shelter. You going to be governor? It's not that hard. I'll give you money, Mark. Please help me and don't you ever post another picture with that, man? Oh, this is crazy merry Christmas. Merry christmas. Stephanie ingredients my new Facebook friend, Sherry Munson. And and your sister, very, Chris hoot. In between the commercials. I'm totally teasing. I can handle it. But Mark, Mark, Mark. We've go to functions, and you're always there, and you're always trying to get pictures with everybody. But would you burn the pictures that you have with runner please right now? I want to hear it was difficult. In fact, that interview on channel seven was just incredible. I can't believe I mean, did he not have genie? I phone number. Facebook. I don't know. Maybe she doesn't check her messenger. But I'm just saying seriously, you had a woman that really wanted to do great things with this day. He's literally going around saying I'll give you money you to run for you want to have happy birthday is a car. You could be governor. I'll give you five million. What is wrong with him? Is this doesn't it make you so sad that this man wasted four years, and what kind of damage you did for our state, and you just had the four to two when he realized this isn't for me. A lot harder. I'm doing it for free. And this is my thing what what is wrong with the leadership in in Illinois to Republican leadership. When you hear that former governor Edgar is not only work with JB's team. But he's also on this inauguration party. What is wrong seriously, Mark? What are we going to do? I don't know. But these are not Republican these are rhinos or make Republicans are moderates. And we're moving forward I'm talking to a lot of people lately and the Republicans conservative Republicans are pro life Republicans the west tax Republicans, the people that want to bring people back to Chicago by by cutting taxes. That's a big group. In fact, there's a lot of Democrats. In fact, some might be sitting around your table there to want to they lower taxes right who doesn't want to keep their own money. And that's what chasing people out of Chicago. And it's it's basically the Democrats with the help of some Republicans. Like like, I mean, we we need to bring jobs back to Chicago. And and I heard your segment. And earlier with a shot Ford. I wanna cut taxes, and I wanna bring businesses back regulations right to make his Mark you post pictures of empty storefronts. Yeah. There's one of my Facebook projects I post I used to do one picture now do about ten pictures of day. I cannot drive down the street northside southside west side, you guys are talking about the west side, but you on the north side, and they'll be twenty five percent of the business on on park, Addison Cicero, they'll be empty, and and there's nobody coming into there's no dry cleaner. There's no, you know, you can only have so many tattoo and nail salons and all that. But people that just want open on your clothing store fronts since you're just they're not coming to Chicago ten and a quarter sales tax to if you're buying something. Some, you know, jewelry appliances, expensive women's clothes. You're going to go to the suburbs. Are you going to go to Indiana? It's all gone. Nobody gives you an attitude. You click boom, boom, boom. If you go to Indiana, or the suburbs, you even get a free bag people like this seven. Was like, oh, what did you mean? You mean, you don't have to pay for bags, and they probably forget the days when bags for free. But you are so right, Mark. Well, I know and Mark you could be pushy. You're always telling me, you should go to this. You should go to that. And I'm trying to get ready for my show. And it's gotta so he has some of the craziest notching, Mark. Some of the craziest people that he'll decide you should call Stephanie today, even though she's in the midst of doing her clips and stuff, but Mark kept texting me saying you should go to the Carol in front of the abortion clinic. I thinking they were downtown and that I had cherry right with me. And I just didn't think the logistics workout. And so he's there's one downers grove is that near you. So I had my son and his girlfriend to the train end in an album visiting from Arizona. Nine thirty eight train. I go right over the seventy fifth street and Mark when I'm sitting there, and I realized I was waiting for it to start. I've got the kind of early and just what goes on in that building and the darkness, and then when I got out and just twenty five people showed up at that location on seventy fifth street and this at the beginning at the entrance of subdivision, a very nice homes, and I keep thinking so every time these people pull out to go to the jeweler go very near a big shopping centre that I passed by all the time Christmas time, I'm always over there. I was over there Thursday for quite a bit of time. I think in every time they go in and out of their subdivision darkness. And just what what the abortion clinic represents. And we were standing there with all these carolers mazing Christians is out there praying for those babies, and we see a woman come out man has his arm around very affectionately, and he places her into their Range Rover, and I'm just thinking, wow. Oh, you know, what she just made a choice that she does she can't reverse. And this is what we need to the message is so important. It's just not about hating and not is this is about love and defending the right for those innocent babies to be born. And I just want everybody. If you have a church, and you're listening to the seventy trucks will. So you go to your pastors say, hey, our church should have a bus going to the March in January. There's no reason I'm thinking I want my church January thirteenth. I want to I want us to have scarves identify. We're from this chart. I mean, we need. This is nothing else is more important as a church is a Christian institution in defending the lives of innocent babies. And that was I'm so glad you push go. And I just thought okay, I'll go because I usually get so frazzled on Saturdays trying to just prepare and making sure I've read all the news and be ready for anything. That was a great way to start my day to day. Well, it's amazing. So they it was called a curling. What what's the name of it peace in the womb is that the name? And so they sang it Illinois right to life up pro-life groups sang at ten abortion clinics in Chicago suburbs and sang Christmas carols. So a couple of interesting things happen the one Planned Parenthood. I'm assail division. They called the police and the police came out, and they said pretty forbade gray and shooting folks, we. Came three cars came, and they talked to him for a few minutes, and they left and this this happened actually two of the sites today because the people in there as you would say killing babies, they're not like somebody outside talking about about saving babies and singing Christmas carols, and they actually had an empty manger. Yeah. And it's quite a program and make you something to think about it. What's interesting up on the north side on Milwaukee avenue is congressman Mike Quigley is directly next door to an abortion clinic. That was pretty shocking to me. And it's just you know, when you see this is just so sad to hear, you know, baby. They're talking about the heartbeat law now up US people, and you can ask. If if you have a heartbeat are you alive and a baby has a heartbeat as early as seven weeks, and it's like, how can how can you say that's not a life. And that's what people aren't familiar with Marcus talking about there have states out here. This thing wants to the heartbeat is detected. You cannot have the abortion as we go back and forward twenty six twenty two weeks. And we didn't know what Mark if you ask a democrat that loves going to babies, and you decide what week is too far lawn. They can never give an answer concrete. They just can't you can ask Hillary Hillary. I think is when the baby's crowning. Even you got a decision. Hurry up one more push. If you want this to be, so that's what gets me is if you just ask some commonsense questions. They don't have an answer for you. If you can hear the heartbeat. You write your are alive. Yeah. Well, it's a big deal. Let me tell you one other thing I got going. I wrote a good story to this week in Illinois review. I was at a crime scene Monday. Actually, they were chasing a man. This got very little media coverage. They were chasing a man with a knife and very much like a quantum McDonald's situation and the police were chasing that about twenty police cars, and they ended up tease them and they they brought him down with no injuries. Nobody injured and they made the arrest. So I wrote an article in Illinois review called mainstream media ignores every day, Chicago police heroism. Hear much about this two weeks ago. They had a similar case where they tasers demand with an eye on the northwest side and a policeman got injured head to have nine stitches because he tried to grab the knife. And you just don't hear about this terrible things. One of your earlier today said the police need more training. But the police are really know the thin blue line between us and anarchy. So that's my story. That's review. I put it on your Facebook page if anybody wants to read it, but it's a it's a very sensitive thing. I support the police, and it just uh we need to let them do. Their job is a very dangerous city. And there's a lot of crazy people a lot of criminals, and you know, what Margaret beginning of the week. This was a big story, but it's constantly moving a campaign. Volunteer on the corner on a Sunday canvassing is a victim of drive by shooting. That's how rough and tough. This game is when you're running for office in Chicago got shot in both his legs. And I just remember that being a big story. And by the time, I get together in got three hours. That's started even make one of my top ten, but this is Chicago. That's the reality of what you're living with you could just be simply canvassing for candidate. And you can get shot in both your legs. It's a crazy world while we got ten days. Till christmas. We got seventy five days to the mirror election mirror. Electron February twenty eighth two days later, Stephanie, and I are going to CPAC. That's maybe cheery. I'm trying to get charity go, she's a democrat. If he doesn't think they're black people there. And I wanted to take a nap. Absolutely not. Gosh. That's a terrible thing to say there's everybody there. I never been to one. To go. I want you the great time goals. He'll come on. Make America great again hat. Ooh. Yeah. I'm telling you. But it is. So we've yeah. We've got the election that we've got CPAC, and it's just. Next week. I'm going to see Suzanne Mendoza speak at the city club. I'm also going to be rich Miller. A lot of your listeners will know, he writes, a political blog a capital facts. And then separately I on January eighth and there's still room available. If you want to see Eddie Johnson speak. That's the police commanders. We're going to hear them talk about the solutions for this. Imagine, you know, he's nice guy, but he'll talk about gun violence and how everybody's getting guns in Indiana, take our guns. I wanna talk about stop and frisk and longer sentences. The sentencing that would help a lot. So, but that's what's going on very Christmas. Love hearing you ladies, you guys should have a whole show. They asked Leshan for they they're trying to replacement has better questions than I did. I'm so happy that they took the series in there, preparing this. This was a lot of fun, Mark. I'll talk to you next week. We have David Smith and Jasmina and Yvonne in studio that's gonna be awesome as well..

"Yeah. Whittle chasing, really the biggest news stories of the day that might include perhaps the president's tweets or new findings and some investigation, and we will try to tackle some of the issues at the city and state level. And we're gonna do it tonight with Dave Lundy, Mike lever. And you prefer Michael, Michael. Like, my give you a Mike is good. Hey, Mike and Airtel. Mike, the Mike interesting evening, actually, I'm looking forward to talking to columnist. Rick Rex husky from this Tribune he finished up his his food drive. The hated columnist campaign that he had if you hate Wreksa he wanted you to put your charity where you're. Hate is. And let's see how that turned out as he was raising some money and food for a good cause Dave Lindy is the president of aileron communications. And also from the better. Well, I always said a better half. But I think continues of Touche now, it's the way better half. Oh, dear. Well, not to go into any details at tongue in cheek. I don't know. The same some guy the old same half. Eric elk is the president and CEO of Fokker, Illinois. He's also a former chief of staff for Senator Mark Kirk. We have Mike LeBron studio and interested. He's an attorney who also happens in not just be unattended just any attorney. But he is representing a client who is in the news. And we can talk about with Rex husky the guy who's being banned from going on the field and his Packers gear. This is he already being banned. Here. He is for this week this week filed a O. Wpro seeking some kind of emergency extraordinary relief. The federal judge said close call. But no, we'll go through the case. At the end of the case will see so wrong. So we'll we'll talk about that just a few minutes. I know Rex's on hold to him just after the news. And I wanted to I know Dave, and I were on the phone. He asked me how the mayoral forum went. I was the moderator for the Chicago mayor candidates for a very nice job. Oh, you watched it. Trashing it on Facebook live, and I thought you you handled it very well. He surprised a little bit. I was nervous for myself. Was you were surprised? She did. Well, oh, no, not that you did. I was surprised how well it went. Yeah. I like it when it's. When when candidates start taking shots. It was that was quick to Chico. Gary Chico is like I said they had ninety seconds to introduce themselves to the audience. We were at the kapernick center. It was put together by the thirty eighth. Ward. Democrats at the northwest side mayoral candidates forum. And so ninety seconds introduce themselves. They talked about their record surpassed what they plan for the city, but Gary Chico went out of the gate of after Toni preckwinkle and the soda tax. And how how many candidates were actually at the form because I think they're something like twenty twenty twenty one running there were ten candidates into that get unwieldy. So there was a moment where think even the organizers were concerned, Eric how I did it when they started all talk over each other and add each other. And when I was like, okay, I don't know what I said, but it seemed to work, and I it happened. I kept them all I mean. And there were believing the the searing glare of former police superintendent Garry McCarthy still I wake up going. I didn't do it. Toni preckwinkle was all business and was a little bit frustrated because I had to adjust what the plans were for the rules, especially because I realized we had more time than I thought we were going to so was able to allow more rebuttals as we went on. And when I knew that somebody needed to get in on a topic. I I would say, okay you, and then this person next, and I started designating and managing it that way. So what was your biggest surprise my biggest surprises that I could do it? Now. My my biggest surprise was that. I think everybody really had a moment where they showed the audience who they are. And the audience responded, positively I think that almost every candidate had a moment where the audience, but. Yeah, I mean, I don't think it was a pretty pretty packed crowd. Yeah. It was that that was just the candidates. I'm surprised at how good the microphones worked. I don't know. What to tell you? What was the criteria for letting ten of the twenty one? They were all invited all the ones that even though because right now, obviously the petitions are still being challenged. So there are some people who may or may not end up on the ballot. We couldn't really make that they couldn't make a distinction. Everyone was invited. In the first ones that responded were invited were allowed on stage. So we we're going to keep it to ten regardless. Bill Daley was on vacation and one other candidate was supposed to be there and dropped out J mall. Green. Join us at the last minute. And he thought was everyb- every single person. I thought really brought something unique interesting, you know, whether or not it was what the audience wanted to which wanted. It was good were there people other than Gary Chico who were really kind of coming out of the gate throwing bombs. I think there are a couple of moments where they tried. I think the Gary McCarthy after somebody me what the Africare Gary McCarthy some of my questions would go after individual candidates. Whether it was Suzanne Mendoza on her record in the general assembly on criminal Justice reform and the death penalty or obviously Toni preckwinkle and being part of the machine Gary McCarthy during the liquidity. Donald deal a lot of different things like that also were inherent built into the questions. But gave you know. And then it was also moment of like, you know, you're somebody who doesn't have as much experience. And let's see what they have. So any moments of levity. Oh, yeah. There are definitely I think there are some pretty good moments of lovely, Eric. Didn't you think I yelled at the end the last question was if you had one last meal in Chicago, let's say removing where would it be? And who you know, what would you order and someone yelled at me? Let's talk about something important like murders. And I said, okay, okay. We've been here for an hour. Forty five minutes. We've talked about a lot of issues including the murder rate in Chicago. The campaigning will continue, and I would argue that depending on their answer tells a lot about somebody. Absolutely. Besides you could have combined those two things. Would you like what's your favorite restaurant to get murdered come on? We're not going there. So we'll we'll get into in a minute. But what were some of the good answers to that? What were some of the restaurants that people name? Oh, I mean like a pres pizza gene your daddy's the Greek islands. Just just to name a few. There were some really good ones. Yeah. Let's let's take a break. Here. We've got to check in with Rex husky and see how his head columnist campaign went with the Chicago food depository more in a moment. You're listening to WGN radio.

"Very good. I have to make sure I get those in wasn't a very smooth. But I did get the live read in. Hey, Mark merry Christmas. Very christmas. On Jerry Brown. You guys are the best thing on radio this week. Well, he got he got the phone ringing with the candidates, and the people that he brought in and this just an opportunity against meet people interact with people that I normally don't get a chance to even know that they exist and what they're doing. And it's all we we broadcast here from Chicago said, you gotta know about the Chicago way, and it's a pleasure to have Jerry in and just I'm just so happy that he again, this is something about us going back and forth for a couple of years. And then I realized okay, I guess he's safe. I could have in the studio even though I know my producers, we have my backpack there, and he's turned out to be is this the crazy democrat, but not but harmless and so. You got a chance to meet him. Mark trouble democrat. Trying to figure out how to be a Republican. I'm offering him a life jacket here. I'm on my hand is say come on grandma hand pulled you away from that crazy party. That's just business ruining ruined. Right. Give him a door. Gotta make. I'm going to transform somebody. You're not people passed as people I'm gonna some. But one day somebody's gonna come here as a democrat leave as a Republican. I can only hope, but it is a pleasure to talk to people that that disagree with me because I like to be held accountable. So Mark, I don't know is this a busy week for you or is winding down entity. You're just a bunch of parties and champagne toast, thirties and recouping from the midterms. I spent the day filling my backyard ice rank is kind of old school thing. We do we've flood part of the backyard and I play volleyball tournament today. So I'm doing the man on the street smart. You're not using illegal ice rink because that's Trump got him. The news today he has one legal at this hotel. You tell me you're not using as they call them undocumented workers doing the work yourself. So this is a joke. Family project. We we really privileged white people. What do you mean? Democrats don't think you work just to get a basket of money on your desk, your doorstep and legal to do all your job. But yeah, no, Mark. We'll post pictures. Yes. You do. Just like you guys. I grew up in Chicago. I went to Catholic schools. I'm walking away. I'm not moving to Tennessee or sonar, Texas. And I I want you to fight the good fight. You're on the front cargo. Great again, you said it earlier, and you know, I don't know what we're going to do with these Twenty-one candidates for mayor. I've I've met most of them if I saw Bill Daley speak the other day, I'm going to actually see Suzanne Mendoza, I've never heard her speak. But I'm going to see her at the city club later in the week. I might also see Gary McCarthy who I've met several times. And it's just a crazy thing. You know, we have how many days till the electric eighty days till the election days till Christmas. We also municipal elections out here where I am in. Well, Matt now all the rest of the area that's eighty two days away, April second, okay? It's funny that they have to have all these elections on different days waist. Now you run for school board. Mark. No, I should be the three of us would are the people who should be running because we know what's going on with poor Jerry can't run for school board because they don't have control over their school boards. Here is appointed by the mayor. But yeah, I I joke, but I only pray that we get good people that have the kids best interests at heart because that's not my calling. That's not my gift. I I would sit at those meetings. When they start talking about numbers my head. I just be thinking about disagree with they need elected school board because the teachers union would stack the deck can have those people in there. Workout. I don't have the answer. But that's not the answer. Now, if they got control over every double. Yeah. Oh. Candidates versus the other candidates. I it is something to you know, Mark takes a lotta pictures, and and Patrick did take a picture and post that, but Mark I thought about a do you have picture of with with you what blog, oh because blog blogger popped up in my memory newsfeed on Facebook. And I was just thinking what happened him he was gonna get pardoned by Trump. And and and all that and I'm just thinking. Wow. Does Mark have a picture with whenever picture? I've is is a mask, and I have it in my Halloween display every so wanna lose you is to have them pardoned. I think or I would commute the sentence. I would not pardon him. But I would I would probably let him out. I'm not sure what he did. That's so terrible. Maybe switch him out with that Burke. What do you think of that? Well, you know what? Switzerland. We can just make role for Edberg, but there's a guy a political operative. I dunno Ziff sister. Now, he was so ready when when before Obama left he said, he gassed up his minivan. He thought Obama was going to pardon blog. Also, he was ready to go get Lago. So Ziff goes out. I think you should write with him. So you could get your finally get a selfie maybe through thick glass. But I think that your collections not complete. If you don't have a picture of the sitting governor governor, that's that's now in jail come on Mark the rest of it is all for not. If you don't have that picture. Yeah. Why don't have one with Michael Madigan either? He's he's he's a. Operates in the dark allusive. Nobody gets Jerry Brown. I thought I have you. I don't even know if Mike Madigan was show up on film, but that's just vampires ghouls or whatever. But yeah. So, but Jerry is a real person. And he's you know, he's he may be a democrat. But he's okay now, I'm teasing. So I know you went to the Illinois policy party. What are your listeners era people came up to me and said where Stephanie trust? So we want her show we offer blind on five days a week. So we're about three hundred people there, and they there was a nice function. How was the food? Good finger foods. Yeah, they had five hundred sliders there. I posted a picture. Age and it was a dummy. And I'm really mad. I missed it. Now, five phones, the sliders. Really? No. That's good. And it was open bar. And it was it was a nice event. But like I said people kept asking me, we're Stephanie trussell. Why isn't she on the radio more? You're going to have to come and speak for yourself at some of these about, well, I can do is keep working hard at some point. And when I'm ready and I'm worthy. I'll get an opportunity, but I'm just happy to get my three hours every Saturday here, live and local. And if you miss any of it goes to the podcast at wlsaMcom, but you know, it really got to pick and choose Mark with the holidays as as a mom, and I mean, I do what I do here on. But I have a lot of things going on. And I I try to just do one thing weak and that didn't make the cut this week. And today, I have dinner with some basketball family that we love and our kids graduated a few years ago. So those kind of things that is important for me to do. And I have to every once in a while I'll have to put being a mom in above being addicted to politics and being able, but I really want to go to that party. But I just thought. You know, it seems like a lot of work is sometimes the drive all the way there. And I'm still a granny nanny. I just babysit. My granddaughter a couple of days a week, and I can't leave until my son gets home and knew him being a Federal Express driver. This is the busiest season. So I never know of Julius getting home at six. So I just said now I won't even try to buy a ticket because it's just predictable as to win he might get home. But that's okay. I know that you're there. That's the point of your job is man on the street reported to tell me what I missed is there. Anything coming up? Kerley net abortion clinics, which is very interesting. It's the empty manger in what they have is an empty major manger, and they just send Christmas carols, and it seems pretty harmless, but these clinics they'll be doing Saturday. I just put it on the Stepney trussell Facebook page all the details on it. Okay. But they bring in a lot of security and stuff. They're worried about somebody that Democrats. Well, they might be singing and somebody might turn around decide not to have an abortion because it's outside. So it's very interesting to see I've done the last two or three years, and I'll go out for a while they're doing six different sites in Chicago. And that's this Saturday. Also this Wednesday's Chicago young Republican. Holiday party. They don't call it a Christmas party anymore. I think some people do so called Christmas come on, man. I've come to the Christmas party. That's what it's all about. It's not a holiday. So I thought their party was over. So they're parties coming up. Yeah. Coming up if you're me on Facebook. I'm posting Nativity scene. Every day. I hope I don't get banned from Facebook. But I'm posting a Nativity scene with Jesus it's interesting. A lot of the Catholic ones. Don't put Jesus in till midnight on the twenty fourth. So that's kind of a fun fact in Chicago, there's one the cardinals house down on north and Aster, and it's an empty manger in and somebody will come out at midnight. If you're hanging out at midday, and you can see them put Jesus in in the majors just kinda cool. I'm also posting and Jim economists Jim from south Elgin. Both of us are posting empty closed vacant buildings in Chicago. And you speak jobs, and we're mostly these US Jerry earlier, what he would do as mayor what I would do is probably cut the property tax cut the sales tax and see if I could. And also, I'd probably cut the minimum wage. People would be mad at me. But we gotta keep jobs in Chicago. Right. And that's that's you know, I agree with them. Get rid of the tips. Yup. Get rid of some of this other stuff. I probably cut the alderman and half to twenty five. I do a lot of reading. I get rid of the pensions. People are going to be mad at me. I would probably not win win. On your platform. Don't reveal your platform until after you went to the parents, the taxpayers and the kids, and and it seems like everybody else looking out for the unions and vendors. Lawyers. Don't get on the lawyers. Have. And we gotta support Trump. We gotta support I not get Jerry. Donald J Trump he loves his country, Jerry he wants to put us. I he wants a secure our borders. He wants to make sure American women moms and families living on the border gets to go to sleep at night without having an AK47. underneath their bad just because people are walking across the border uninhibited and just in their backyards, take a bath in their first thing. He needs to do is start telling the truth more off up. I love him Democrats. Bomber. Well, he should have opened up a school. All of a sudden, they they want the truth. Because I'm still, you know. I'm still going. Gone to the other day that he's in the history book. Let's leave him there. He's building here on the lakefront, and that's an illegal. But that's not his fault. Are we? Do you turning that over to the city of Chicago what.

"So we'll have call centers throughout the country, and we'll have a Chinese at the ready to make sure that if anybody calls and reports problems at the paulie location. Whether it's they're being told they're not registered to vote that there's a typo in their name or some of these obstacles that we know that Latino voters do face that we will have some recourse for them. So that they can be sure to vote even if it's with a provisional ballot on November six two thousand eighteen. So now, let's talk a little bit about what's happening in terms of Latino candidates for office. And I said, it's a very exciting election. If you look around the country, and the number of Latinos and Latinas who are running for office at all levels of government. There are three key Senate races have Latinos running a Kevin de Leon the California state Senate, president pro tem emeritus is challenging to Feinstein. This is an intraparty fight democratic instead of crap. In California, Texas, Ted Cruz running for reelection with in a competitive race against that O'Rourke and in New Jersey United States, Senator Robert Menendez, the incumbent seeking reelection. We believe has a very good chance of being reelected into house. However, we're very excited that we fully expect to see some fresh new faces in the United States house of representatives. We expect that these five candidates will be successful November six. Tweet Garcia will be likely the new member of congress from Illinois taking the seat occupied by Luis Gutierrez. Anthony Gonzales, a former NFL wide receiver and entrepreneur is likely to prevail in Ohio district sixteen you've all heard about Alexandria ocasio Cortes in New York. Being a new member of the New York delegation. And then in Texas big news for the first time in the history of Texas to Hispanic women. There's never been a Hispanic woman elected to Texas to serve in the US house and in turn eighteen there will be to veronica's cover the format. Puzzle county, judge and state Senator Sylvia Garcia a pass national. President are very likely to prevail in their racist. And become the first two Latina's from Texas to serve in the United States house. This is of C span radio programming from Wednesday. And then there are Latinos and highly competitive congressional contests around the country and Arizona congressional district to Leah Markus. Peterson is waging a competitive race for that seat in California. We have to. Racists with a very competitive candidates guilty sniffles in Orange County and Mike Levin in southern California. There's a very competitive race again in Florida district twenty six with the incumbent Carlos Goodfellow being challenged by Davy McCray. Said Powell in Florida twenty seven media Salazar is the Republican candidate seeking to replace Indiana. Russ Leighton in that district taking on Donna Shalala, and you Mexico so chill. Torres small is an attorney taking on the Republican there to try to be the second Latina elected to congress in New Mexico. State Senator Richard Okita in West Virginia in a competitive race there and in the race to replace a speaker Ryan for ironworker Rennie Bryce is actually lodging a very competitive race there in Wisconsin. So. In the best scenario for us. There are currently thirty four Latinos in the US house in many of these candidates prevailed. We think there may be as many as ten additional members of the US house of representatives who are Latinos and Latinas being bringing the number up from thirty four to forty one that would be an historic high in terms of the number of Latinos who are serving in the US house of representatives still not Representative of the Latino electorate, nor the Latino population nationally, but significant progress, particularly for midterm election, usually we'll see this kind of increase after a descent, you'll census, and after a disabled redistricting that follows a reapportionment, but here we're seeing a possible jump in the number of Latinos in congress in a midterm election. So quite extraordinary until what's happening around the country. In terms of statewide contests. There are three Latinos running for governor, David Garcia in Arizona. He had a very a strong race for superintendent of instruction two years ago. Now, he's challenging the incumbent. There. Doug Ducey, Michelle Luhan Grisham, the chair the congressional caucus is in a very competitive race to be the next Latina governor of New Mexico and former Dallas county sheriff or the Lupe Valdez taking on governor abbot in Texas. There are a number of Latinos running for governor says well in California and Florida in Illinois in New Mexico, regardless of which party wins in New Mexico. There will be a Latino or Latino governor of New Mexico come to twenty one thousand nine. A number of Latinos who are incumbents in statewide office a running for reelection. I've et cetera. Who actually was appointed attorney general California running to be actually elected in two thousand eighteen and other incumbents out Expedia secretary of state of California Nellie secretary of state of Rhode Island. Who was the first Latina elected to stay white office in all of New England. George Bush land Commissioner in Texas, Suzanne, Mendoza's, they controller in Illinois. The incumbent attorney general in New Mexico on of them with very excellent prospects of being reelected, come November Arturo Vargas today at the National Press Club in Washington. They're Latinos in statewide office that are very competitive from Arizona to California to Indiana, Nevada, New Mexico. Latinos, really all over the country seeking to serve all of their constituents statewide in their states as you can see by this chart here in particular. Just another mention of California that California has five Latinos running for statewide offices in this election, quite extraordinarily again. One thing that we do see that's a little troubling is that we expect there to be a slight decline in the number of Latino serving estate houses and this phenomena really being a function of sitting state, senators and state house representatives and assembly members moving up and serving in running for higher office and not being replaced by other Latinos are Latinos. So our projections are that there may be a net loss of three states senators, and there may be a net loss of four lower house representatives in state. Capitals run the country's. Well, we're going to keep a close eye on this. Once the election is done after twenty after November six we will issue. Our final report on the numbers of Latinos elected to congress, the United States Senate statewide offices and two statehouse. So stay tuned for that they'll come shortly after November sixth finally look a little bit at a. Latino voter impact and gubernatorial racist here, we see the percentage of Latinos that make up the electorate in these very tight races for governor in Arizona, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, New Mexico, Nevada, Rhode Island in Texas, where the Latino share of the vote could really tip the outcome of the election. We see the same thing happening in Kice Senate races in Arizona the contest between Martha mcsally and Kristen cinema in California. The intraparty fight between Leon and Feinstein, Florida. The race between Rick Scott and Bill Nelson. Texas the race between tech crews and Petra rock on all of these states. More voters could certainly be the balance in shaping the outcome of that race. Again, if these candidates and parties reach out to these voters. Latino voter impact on Haas contests. So there are a number of significant and competitive races and congressional districts all over the country where Latinos make up a significant share of the electorate, and they'll states in Arizona. That can count these six congressional districts in California that are very close where the balance of the majority party in the house of representatives, maybe decided Latino voters can make a difference there onto the other states around the country to districts in Florida. District of New Mexico, Nevada and four districts in Texas where Latinos make up such a significant share of the electorate that they could be the deciding factor in those races. So to summarize Latinos are enthusiastic about voting theirself mobilizing because the parties in the candidates really aren't doing enough to engage them into mobilize on. Despite this enthusiasm. We know that there are real factors that are presenting obstacles to let us to vote. Some of those are the state respective literati laws that are tracking poll Latino sellers. They actually are having a real life affect on their ability to exercise their vote. So I. We will continue to do all we can to encourage all that, you know, adult US citizens who are Richard to turn out in November. We're doing this by shoestring because the disinvestment by foundations and donors and Latino civic participation infrastructure of the country, but we can't just sit by and watch while elections happen without doing all we can to ensure Latinos participate and make their voices fully hurt. So thank you. And I'll take some questions Arturo Vargas at the National Press Club in Washington today. So thank you for doing this. So I have two questions one is if you can talk about what effect if any will the care of the migrant caravan. Have on the elections, especially because Republicans are mobilizing based on this the threat of invasion, quote, unquote, number one and number two, the DNC is pushing back against criticism that, you know, they're abandoning Latino voters are the triple C has invested more than twenty five million. They say in reaching out to Latino voters. So how is why is this dissonance? Why do Latinos feel that they're abandoned when at least the Democratic Party says they've invested way more now for the midterms? So let me take the caravan question. I, you know, I really don't know what that issue. And what impact I may have on Latino voter turn our participation of the one of the benefits of having a tracking poll is that in this? We are able to ass issues as they occur for example. One of the issues that we asked registered voters. The tracking poll earlier this election season was their views on Brad Kavanagh when he was still being considered for the United States Supreme court before he was confirmed by the United States Senate, and we're able to gauge Latino opinions of the of the Justice. And so we were hoping that we can include a question on the caravan in these final two weeks before the election. So stay tuned for that as far as the democrat party's claim that they're investing that may be true. But it can't just happen in one election. It has to be sustained has to be every single year. It can't just be cyclical and that is and it can't be surgical either. It has to be across the country in all fifty states reaching Latino voters. Now Latino Richard are tracking poll did tell us that the Democrats are doing a better job than the Republicans and reaching them. In fact, fifty three percent of Latinos in our tracking poll said that the Democrats we're doing a better job of reaching out to let the voters. Compared to thirty percent of Latinos is the Republicans. We're doing a better job. But the numbers don't lie. If fifty three percent of Latino registered voters consistently week after week after week after week after week, tell us that no one's talking to them. Then something isn't happening out there that. These parties may claim that they're doing. Rehnquist's? Let's get most. Latinos, Latinos Wallace, only, potentially pareos like wanna own also.
