Every day as the metro area gets even more crowded. So that's she's really saying like Hey I care about your future. I care about quality of life and I'm here to Sir so in Twenty Twenty. What states are you targeting? Which states are the most important in two thousand twenty? Were completely on the offense which we couldn't be more excited about going into this election cycle on and that's a complete reversal. In in twenty ten we had a lot of chambers that lead to protect in so the safes are the most important on the Minnesota state. Senate is a huge target of ours a willing to seats to win how democratic covering Trifecta if we can do it on the Arizona House and Senate Arizona's a huge target for us. Pennsylvania were looking to flip the Pennsylvania. House Senate read the blue. There's a huge redistricting impact there. The North Carolina House and Senate are huge targets of ours. The governor has no role in redistricting and North Carolina. He can't veto mounts so we have to win. One of those levers of power in order for US factories thing. Texas State House is at the top of our list while out looking at chambers and places a growth in chambers places like Wisconsin the Iowa State House as a huge. A huge of ours to the Michigan State. House is big as well and then. We're looking to expand into safely Florida Montana even West Virginia. So those are some of the targets of the top for less so a lot of that as you heard overlaps with the presidential campaign. And I'll tell you after the twenty sixteen election I was presenting with my Republican counterpart and he looked at me and he said just guy. I don't know why you were surprised that you lost the presidency. We've been punching holes in your blew off for years. And what he meant by that was they. Hogan's one in the Twentieth Election Cycle Pennsylvania Michigan Ohio Wisconsin and they win in and they changed the voting laws in all of the states or cat restrictive voting laws in states like Pennsylvania and they ended collective bargaining in in some of these states They made a number restrictions on our allies and organized labor. They need increased abortion restrictions and those voting rates made it much harder to To win some of the states in in other years restrictions on voting so they knew what they were doing and they they did those things on purpose. In order to win the congressional districts but to keep hold of these legislatures that wrote the voting laws in states so anyone anyone listening reigning constituent can help by presumably what you've talked about earlier. Vote not vote indefinitely vote. That's the minimum. You should do right but but donating because I'm looking at your website right now. D. El SISI DOT. Org and I see the huge red button. What if you're in one of these states? Is there anything that you should be doing? There's a few things like DLC DOT. Org is a great resource obviously we. We Love Books. Takings that are making a contribution dollars goes so far at our level ballot were competing and small races. So it's a a really high leverage investment for folks to me in State. Legislative Races Are Racist. Tend to cost quite a bit less than raise it the other levels of ballot so that's absolutely huge for us if they go to races dot. C. DLC DOT ORG can they can see state legislative candidates in their state that might need resources or they can sort by issue. I'd to look at if there's a reproductive rights champion or climate change champion that they might want to support so they can look at key issues and make the decisions to advance advocates for those issues and then in addition to that waiting for people to get involved to start volunteering with their state legislative candidate in their community and to get involved with their They're saying that you know you. You can make so much more of a difference by a working on one of these small campaigns and developing a relationship with your state legislator State legislators in the office. Every day you'll develop a close relationship with them and that's another way to affect policy making it to tell your story as a campaign volunteer to the state legislator one of The state senators that I know of been. Delaware actually changed his opinion on medicinal marijuana because of his And he's in favor of it because of one of his campaign volunteers in their advocacy for it. So there's really a a huge way an outsider. Way To make an impact on policy in your states of because so we've done a lot of work to get more people involved but we definitely need more people involved low of a valid. You know I always say that like your aunt may not know the name of your stay. Let us have candidate whereas your aunt the name of the presidential candidates that you're working for so we we always need more resources and help at for these folks that have been flying below the radar. I see it now. So if you go to the site like there's a link to racist right and you can filter for your state and you guys just had a victory in Pennsylvania. Did you mention this running green? So that was runny. Green business agent of run in a strong district in Pennsylvania so African American woman that was a huge victory and then we also had another huge victory in Kentucky A woman named are Rachel Roberts. A one in Kentucky and it was twenty one point votes wing from trump so a heavily trump district that a Democrat one. So we're very excited to see that wind as well. So we're so winning in tough districts a using that strategy of recruiting great candidates and local messages. And that was certainly true. In that Roberts District Cutting Kentucky and then we're so excited to see representative. Green joined the Pennsylvania State House. I think her voice will be very important. Now while I'm so excited for twenty twenty nine just talking to you. I feel better or do everything we can.

"The court is unlikely to permit such usage based on citizenship data from the ACS and require instead, an actual full enumeration on the to twenty cents twenty twenty senses, then ho feller says, however, if a citizenship question were added to the twenty twenty census the results and again, quote would. It be advantageous to Republicans and non Hispanic whites end quote. Quote from another section. Quote would clearly be a disadvantage for the Democrats, and quote and third section quote, provoke, a high degree of resistance from Democrats, and of the major minority groups in this nation and of quote. So it's quote when we do the evil, we've done study of the evil that we're going to do it. We're going to need the supreme court to be evil might work and we're going to need a rationale to include this question for evil doing purposes hope, no one finds this LL see at the next evil meeting. Is that nice Bobby, I did not want to editorialize as leave it to me? Because look, the, their words are that bad? Yeah. Now at trial rumor we this affects the testimony directly of Newman and gore. So I the Ross's expert Newman testified in deposition that, and then there's redacted stuff because again, there's, there's potential for ongoing criminal harm Newman testified that he did not rely on, Dr ho feller for expertise on the Voting Rights Act and the doctor ho feller did not appear to me to be an advisor to the administration at all. When asked about the substance of his conversations with Dr ho feller, quote about the citizenship question in two thousand seventeen he testified that Dr ho feller said, quote, Mark, you need to make sure that we take a good census that the administration doesn't skimp on the budget and quote. Gore. Meanwhile, testified that he quote drafted the initial draft of the letter to request the citizenship question sometimes around the end of October early November twenty seventeen and did not name either Newman or ho feller as people who provided input on the initial draft all of this testimony, as, as the petitioners as the respondents point out is either misleading or durang ovals, and congressional interview after final judgment in this case gore disclosed for the first time that in October of twenty seventeen Newman gave gore draft letter as to how to frame this response, right? Then neither Newman nor gore disclosed that ho feller ghost wrote a substantial part of that letter and that letter you wanna guess the punchline. That letter. The punchline of what that letter was the first time that the department of Justice said, oh, well, you know, we need this in order to enforce the Voting Rights Act. So, in other words, the Voting Rights Act excuse was created by ho feller. That is also present in this document J. So hopefully, right? Because we just went through and ho feller says, hey look. Yeah, it would be fantastic, if we could use citizenship, instead of actual voting, but that never gonna happen even we had a sympathetic supreme court. We need to change the underlying data. Now, one away to change the underlying data would be to ask this question, and one good pretextual question, textual reason for changing. This question would be pretending that we care about the Voting Rights Act. This is the beginning of Austin powers, when it's like it's not my bag baby. You know, he's got the penis in larger than GSA definitely is my bag baby that, basically, that's the document. We've found. Yes.

"Be able to ensure that certain standards are held with people boarding, and deepening aircraft audit in some months. We believe there are in the neighborhood of six to eight flights a month. Oh my gosh. We must stop that imagine being this passionate that you don't realize that what you're doing is literally what you claim Trump is doing because these folks are conflicting immigrants who are here illegally, but are here either through no fault of their own. Let's say they're DACA recipients. Maybe they're here because they're just fleeing really bad situations at home, maybe they're here. Just because they actually want to have a better economic life for themselves in their family, right? I have no problem with people who are here illegally who are actually abiding by the law. Otherwise, I mean, I don't want people to come here illegally. I wish we had a system that allow them to come here legally in an easier way. But we don't yet. And we need to have some some some reforms, but. You'll remember that the left went nuts. When Trump said they're bringing their rapists murderers here, isn't that exactly? What doubt Constantine this King County executive, and the progressives who are getting behind this or saying he's conflicting the two he saying he doesn't want to deport illegal immigrants who happened to be rapists and murderers. That's what he's saying. So he's treating them the same way. He would treat an illegal immigrant who didn't commit a horrible crime. Why would you complete the two? I mean, why not spend your energy and your efforts fighting for the people who are actually good people in their communities who are biding by the law who are bringing up their communities are taking advantage of hay making a better life for themselves in the people around them. It's just bizarre to me. I don't understand it. But that's what they do. And when you're an ideologue, you tend to be blind to these kinds of double standards, and one other thing, I don't understand is something that's happening in Texas today. It's supposed to happen in Texas today. In fact, I put my producer on watch. He supposed to tell me because they might change how you're able to buy beer, the Texas State house is deciding what to do with a Bill that would allow stores to sell beer and wine on. On Sunday at ten AM instead of at noon. Now, another plan in this Bill could also allow breweries to sell their craft beer to go. Now NBC news says currently Texas is the only state that doesn't allow visitors to buy the breweries beer to go. It's a push to even the playing field with Texas, wineries, distilleries and brewpubs, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. This is an interesting story to me only in the sense that there is a attention sometimes in conservative circles on issues like this sort of the morality of imbibing. There are religious beliefs having to do with alcohol, for example, you can see a lot of that happening in Utah. Right. So you've got the morality of imbibing versus the conservative principles of personal freedom and being able to choose for yourself, whether or not you're going to imbibe.

"You don't wanna do that? You wanna treat them like the professionals that they are what do you want? What do you want their focus to have to be on his if they can focus on, you know, their work there? Job their education that they're supposed to be providing the students or basic life needs. Yeah. I mean, we we ask a lot of teachers now that and we should because, you know, next to the relationship with the parent a relationship with the teacher is is critical, right? You know, as well as I do you can you can think back in your mind immediately. Who was the teacher that puts you on the right track or to the opposite end man that they really didn't help me move in the direction I want to. But you their teachers in all of our lives that are pivotal for us. And so we know how important they can be. So we need to make sure that we're putting the best people in those places and giving them the freedom to to do what they do best. So school finance definitely a big issue and gonna be coming up. But then also just one of the things you mentioned there with the election here sometimes still being referred to as the down ballot effect from the from the race that a bedroll wrote for Senate was Morton drawing out more people who may not have necessarily voted. Do you think? That's I mean, Republicans definitely still in the majority here. Do you think that's going to have a big impact? I definitely think that it's changed the tone of the conversation in the state, you know. Give me an give you a sense of where things have been at least during my tenure in the legislature says one hundred and fifty members in Texas State house when I came in in two thousand nine that was seventy six Republicans and seventy four Democrats at a certain point. We went the Democrat's numbers moved all the way to forty five. Now coming into this session. It is eighty three Republicans and sixty seven Democrats those numbers are much more equalized. And I think I think that necessarily changes the tone of the conversation, we we're not we're not talking about bathroom bills, which we were already doing two years ago. And so I think the tone is already changed. All right. Well, we have to take a quick break here. But we're going to continue talking with state rep Joe moody about what's going on in the Texas legislative session.

"And so he has been the sort of force behind this measure and poured a lot of money into that initiative across the country. And obviously there were a ton of district attorney's races. What would you say was different about the races this year from previous years? Yes. So. Across the country. There's a sleet of district attorneys who were really running on campaigns to end mass incarceration. So, you know, like, you said before they're looking at the criminal Justice system and saying, hey, we've got a crisis here we've sort of made a mistake. And so in many places they were running against sort of tough on crime law and order incumbent someone who'd been in the job for many years. And so that was a huge change. And I think largely supported by George Soros who funded a lot of these campaigns and a lot of sort of outside interests where people are finally seeing oh, prosecutors are an important lever. If we're interested in changing mass incarceration, and so I'm wondering in terms of where we go from here is why don't we see more or hear more about this bipartisan efforts to achieve criminal Justice reform. I think what's really difficult is that most of these reforms are taking place at the state level. And so you have to kind of go state by state in order to really get. A sense of what's happening and most people are maybe more familiar with with federal criminal Justice reform. So that's all you're hearing. You're hearing how congress won't act do does the president one cents form what does Jared Kushner one. And so they're inundated with this message that there some sort of breakdown in the system that there isn't bipartisan support, but if you looked at each state, and what they've been up to you can see that there's many instances of the legislature coming together and Democrats and Republicans saying this is what we need. Here's how we're going to go forward. Nicole Lewis is a reporter with the Marshall project. Thank Unical could to be with you, historically. The Republican party has been associated with a tough on crime attitude, but conservative support was crucial in several criminal Justice reform victories on the ballot. Last week Bill Hammond is a former Republican member of the Texas State house of representatives who's dedicated his life to criminal Justice reform. He's now the chief strategist for the bipartisan, Texas smart on crime coalition Bill. Thanks for joining us on the takeaway. Shoot. You're having me on your show. So is the positioning from a conservative standpoint towards criminal Justice reform one that really looks at the fiscal challenges and the fiscal impact that the criminal Justice is having or incarceration as having on the United States, certainly that's one perspective. But I think also equally important preps more so is what are the outcomes we lock up people for a long time. And we don't provide them with the services of training, the education they need and once again when they're released they return to a life of crime, which is just not the outcomes we want Bill I want to play something that we hear quite a bit from President Trump. Take a listen, I will restore law and order to our country. I am the law and order candidate. But we will also be a country of law and order. So Bill that's the president, obviously on the campaign trail, and beyond has talked quite a bit about law and order, you know, he's talked about harsh penalties for criminals. He spoke about the death penalty recently after the Pittsburgh shooting. We talk about law and order that can sometimes be a racial is dog whistle for certain communities. How do you see the president's perspective and in talking about law and order connecting really with criminal Justice reform? It just seems like those two things are incongruent. Well, I think they are. I think that we did extensive polling of Republican primary voters in Texas. In other words, the base you will and they overwhelmingly support many issues and criminal Justice reform that we were working for in Texas. So I think there's a disconnect there between what even the Republican primary voters think and what the president's espousing also wanna talk a little bit about who is incarcerated in the United States. The vast. Giardi of people who are incarcerated many of them are men and women of color..

We'll anyone step up and say, I'll have legislation offering legislation before you. They didn't. They're that way. So what would make? Yeah. I mean, what would make you think they do? Now. Betto wrote a book about legalizing marijuana. He'd written a book about that. With somebody else. We did a miserable job of marketing. He didn't do that. He didn't market that. He did. Which makes me wonder if somebody behind the scenes says don't do it don't go there. It's got to be because you really. Haven't heard it hasn't been the campaign, even a part of a campaign for anybody. And he lost by what two hundred and eighteen thousand votes, right? Baby should've mentioned it more. Wow. I don't know. I just. What do you got two hundred eighteen thousand more votes? No. But I think everyone would agree. He didn't sell it very much. No me rarely until late in the campaign. Did you really even hear him talk about what I heard was the? Anti edge from from Raphael. But said he wanted to legalize heroin. Yeah. There's a new twist. Yeah. The heroin heroin. Yeah. I I don't think he sold it. And now these Democrats that have one. They didn't sell it to get there. They won without it. They're not going to do it because they're not gonna do it. Now don't have support of the speaker. They got a long way to go before that would be even remotely receptive. Maybe that's a way to energize Republicans in urban areas. If you did do that though. If a Republican would say, okay, let's do it money for the state right rural area. We're gonna farming. He's going to help the economy. Jeff Sessions is out of the picture fair game you ladies at the Republican clever Midland Houston forward stand down. I mean, that's kind of an interesting idea. I don't know that the Trump nationalists now of today are they really that anti pot. I don't think so no, I don't think. So I don't think they are. I don't think the president is in suburban Republicans who are now have to reinvent themselves. Is that would that be the right play? It's too late. Now, you're done. Yeah. You're you're you're right. You're not going to be your. I don't know that you're going to get it back anytime soon because millennials have taken that they're taking over then. And.
