How cities are preparing their water infrastructure for bigger storms

"The cost of heavier rainfall. I'M NPR CHIEF. Meteorologist Paul Hutton. Or this is climate. Cats governor. Tim Wall says Minnesota Needs Two hundred ninety three million dollars to retrofit. Its water infrastructure to keep up with climate change last year more than twenty Minnesota location set annual precipitation records that includes the twin cities and Rochester. Were more than fifty. Five inches fell last year. Minnesota is now about five inches wetter on average than in nineteen eighty and these heavier twenty-first-century rains are overwhelming. Our Twentieth Century Stormwater Infrastructure Randy Nip rash is a storm water regulatory specialist with Stanford Consulting and the Minnesota cities stormwater coalition. Hi Randy Paul. So we see the data right. Minnesota's getting wetter. What are the impacts of this climate shift on Cities? Not only are we getting wetter in general but more of our rainfall is coming in more intense. Storms everybody has seen what a really intense storm does to an urban storm water system. But you can Get those sort of impacts at scales where you have real problems where you can jeopardize property where people can get injured or even killed and those impacts are real inconsequential for our cities. We have rain bursts last summer in South. Minneapolis in a neighborhood that overwhelmed the storm systems and there was water up to the top of the tires and cars parked on the street. How does that four cities to to those heavier bursts of rain? One of the things that we try to do is figure out where the problems are going to be an advance so instead of just responding to problems after they happen we can use computer models to look at our urban stormwater systems we can we refer to it as dropping designed storm onto our urban landscape using these computer models. Watch how all the water moves through the storm water system and see where the problems are going to be. So for instance the hundred year storm nowadays For the twin cities area is thought to be about seven and a half inches which is up from six inches from earlier precipitation frequencies that change in rainfall can cause impacts that we can Analyzing advance anticipate and perhaps address before they happen instead of after it happened. Okay so let's say we do that. And we address them. I assume we're building bigger storm water projects and how much can a big storm? Water project cost a city a million multiple millions of dollars. Sometimes sometimes it's a fixes though can be quite simple. You can provide a path for water to pass under an emergency situation. Could be a road. Could be a parking lot of places where you can move water or store. Water even temporarily. Sometimes you can do it pretty cheaply randy and you're dealing with cities. What's your assessment of where they are with this process? Are they on the right track? With upgrading. Stormwater infrastructure cities are as usual trying their best They also have multiple water issues to deal with so for instance they have state permitting. Requirements for water quality whereas flooding questions are related to water quantity. There isn't the same regulatory pressure on the water quantity side but the cities are always and and for a very long time have been deeply concerned about flooding potential randy crash with stand tech consulting and the Minnesota City stormwater coalition thanks for being on climate cast today always a pleasure. Paul keep up the good

"And that doesn't get any traction. Right. Is there any expectation at all when it comes to governor Tim walls, especially given you know, how he boasted long ago about his a rating with the with with the NRA. And I know he's come out with these, you know, these gun proposals just makes sense. But is there any expectation that maybe there's a glimmer of hope there because of his past experience with with guns? How much of that is going to be predicated on sort of the the the narrative in the public sphere in your mind? You know, if this was five years ago, I would've said, yes. But I think with the new the new democrat party, they ha he knew that in order to get the the DFL endorsement, which he didn't get, but he was seeking it. Sure. And and the elected he had to run from his gun rights record any I do fully embrace these extreme gun control measures. And when you look at at the democrat party or the DFL party in Minnesota is putting gun control in their platform. I don't think that there's any. Running back from that. I think in order to to satisfy the DFL base that that he needs to hold onto that he's not going to be interested in working with us at all. It's obviously going to be a difficult road ahead when it comes to your, you know, your right to keep and bear arms in with that. Can you talk a little bit about the the broader concern, if the DFL gets let's just say for the sake of argument, the majority of what they want moving forward from there. You know, where where are your major concerns if they're able to get these wins when it comes to the individual and the ability for them to to to keep their arms. Yeah. We would if these red flag laws passed if these universal background check registration laws passed. We would. Absolutely be entertaining lawsuits. We we think that we're on very strong ground on due process grounds on on. Search and seizure fourth amendment grounds. Even right to face your accuser, you know. I I think that we've got some very strong grounds for a lawsuit. But I I I like to think that we can with the help of your listeners and with the help of the law abiding gun owners of Minnesota that we can use the Senate as a backstop and put as much pressure on governor walls as possible to make it clear that Minnesota doesn't need these extreme bills. How much further could this restrictions go? I mean, what what what else is there anything else? That's out there that you'd go man if they get this. They're going to go after this. Yeah. So the I'm anxiously awaiting today, I'm all dressed operating to go to the capital, right? After this bright and early today, we're expecting a lot of the house bills to to drop some of the Senate bills drop that a universal background. Check registration Bill drop yesterday. But the house bills will drop today and with you when you guys look at the map, how it grew this past legislative or this past election cycle, it was almost all in the metro area. I mean, I think fifteen of their seat. That they picked up were within twenty miles of the metro and gun rights or gun control measures were a big part of the platforms of those candidates. Yeah. You know, even even though they were the and they were a big part of the platform. They weren't Ness. When you look at the data. It doesn't show that that's why gun of that white people were driven to the polls. But gun control was a big part of their platform, and they're all full in with the with the extreme gun, control agenda. I'm accepts expecting to today to see assault weapons bans magazine limits. They want a Bill to tax immunization. And then that that tax goes to fund gun control groups that want to try to do programs for, you know, for victims of gun violence, Dan, insure view as a question. Good morning. Stan. Good morning.

So you never there's no excuses on missing a show, and you don't even have to be at the gym. You could be somewhere else. It could be in your kitchen, and he spot really works. So today is the start of the Minnesota legislative session. So yesterday governor Tim walls was sworn in forty first governor of this great state of Minnesota. Now, his campaign was one Minnesota democrat a one Minnesota and his campaign promises was we're going to unite. And obviously everyone's going to say that right? But anyone who says that I don't care if you're democrat or Republican? That's a good start. Let's let's let's listen. Let's hear you out that's work together. But now will they be able to work together? That's the question, and we are the only state with a split legislative legislature. The only state with a split legislature in the United States. The Senate Republicans have a slim margin there they held that through the two thousand eighteen election there at thirty four to thirty two last session. And that's the way it's going to say it's going to stay in the House Democrats lead. They've got the majority now they flipped it, essentially. They lead seventy five fifty five. So they got the majority there. So it's split and we've got a democrat governor. So are we going to be able to get stuff done? Governor walls was quoted yesterday. And. I, you know, putting political parties aside, and if you just listen to the words. I like it. Said I will not normalize behavior that seeks to deepen an exploit these divides. I will not normalized policies that are not normal ones at undermine our decency and respect if Washington won't lead. Minnesota will. I don't care how you lean Republican or democrat. Everyone deserves a chance. Let's work together on this. So here's the key people in place here. As we start this this session, the Senate majority. Let's Paul gazelle could he's from the Brainard area. We've heard that name before he's been around the Senate minority leader, Tom Bach. He's from cook went to university of Minnesota Duluth. So he's up from that northeast northeastern part of the state. The house majority leader Ryan Winkler. Born in this is at least according to his look at BDO page, but he was born in bemidji and now lives in the west metro. In house, minority leader, Kurt doubt. And he's from just north of the metro in the Princeton area. So we we've got a lot to talk about today. There are some things happening. We wanna talk about like, what are some of the key policies that they wanna they want to push through. What are some of the key challenges that we face? We've got a good voice for that. Coming up in about an hour. John cryan from Carol Evan. He is he's been on the political beat for years at Carolina doesn't outstanding job. So we're going to check in with him. Now tonight, President Trump could do something. He's never done before. It's his first Oval Office speech. And he's going to he's going to talk to the nation is gonna be on every network tonight. He's gonna he's gonna use the words crisis. There's a crisis at the US Mexico border in that that area needs a border wall. And now he's demanding that before ending a partial government shutdown that is what now in its in its eighteenth day second longest in history, and it continues on and extends throughout the week. And it'll be the longest in US history. So he's going to be on the air tonight at eight o'clock. The other side, the Democrats Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer. They issued a statement demanding that Democrats and get equal airtime on the issue and coming from television. That's always fair you want, fair and balanced. You want both sides to have the right to have the same amount of time to speak. On how they believe because this is a very split issue. Obviously. So in a joint statement Pelosi and Schumer said now that the television networks have decided to air the president's address, which if his past statements are any indication will be full of miles and misinformation Democrats must immediately be given equal airtime. Vice president Pence was on good Morning America this morning. That's on ABC. Good Morning, America. And he said, quote, the passion you hear from President Trump his determination to take this case to the American people as he will tonight in his national broadcast from the Oval Office comes from this president's deep desire to do his job to protect the American people. But this is a big issue right now. And they're not close not close to due to come into a solution on this thing are they? So we're gonna we're gonna listen to the president tonight. As he is. He describes us as a as a crisis on what's happening between the US and Mexico. Again, we got John chrome and coming up in just about an hour. He can help us break down. All these thoughts.

Are you going to move your family to the governor's residence? How do you deal with the public attention? They could draw. That's right. This is my favorite one though. Drew, you promised your son gusts a dog, if you'd one did you get the dog a boy, we'll never know of Jeff Johnson would have been asked about future purchases. He said and for those wondering he said not yet we are going to have a rescue puppy good puppy dog. It's harder to adopt out. Who are you? Rescuing that puppy from. Rescue. A call. The are you going to call the dog rocks or cows? What's what name show the dog have? And then they get into some things that we talked about with with Paul Zalka, the Senate majority leader specifically his political approach in his views on politics is now being a competition. He listens to people for their perspective. Tries not to assume motives and all sounds great. I just honestly, I don't I don't buy any of it. I really don't this is a much different walls than what we saw when he was serving, you know, prior to running for the for for the governorship. And you know, look, I I hope I'm wrong. I'm keeping my expectations though, very very low in that regard. Why wouldn't you? Yeah. Because we haven't seen anything else. Otherwise, you're. He says what do you have to accomplish in your first year for you to consider it a success? He says restoring faith in bipartisan decision making that means we will finish our work on time. I want to focus on things that I believe are bipartisan Minnesota values the strength of the state lies in investing in our people education healthcare community prosperity. He knows he won. Right. He doesn't have to be can stop can stop with all the platitudes. He won. It doesn't really has. Yeah. I don't know what what walls we're going to get. But you know, we're going to get the gas tax walls, the one that didn't oppose the abolishing is the one that flipped on guns of rocks and cows, or we're going to get this nice bipartisan, Tim walls that like SCI fi books. And last book, you read was mortal engines, seeing that I was the only one, oh, I'm sorry. He did say he did finish one book that he suggested not reading because it was terrifying. Command and control tracing the history of America's nuclear arsenal. Okay. Don't read that. So all right. I won't. All right. I might send them a copy of embark should. And and and not put the caveat on it just for the sake of just for the just for the sake of pipe. Partisanship. Little all of my my my olive branch book. Yeah. Might I might I might go and do that you're trying to start a new SCI fi franchise. That's right. That's right. The first of a saga. Before we get to Keith Ellison because that's just gonna make this whole depressed. This is also depressing. But we were talking about this this homeless shelter that moved and and the individual who just started using heroin the month prior before they moved the encampment from Franklin high watt avenues into this transition center and found an enabling community. Yeah. Right. Yeah. Not not a community. That's going to help him not a community that that was looking to get them off the opioids going to move away from his addiction. And there are certainly shelters out there that that's what they focus on. That's what they worked towards they don't allow drug use at their at their facilities. And that's why the certain people are choosing to be at this homeless encampment rather than those shelters and look what's happening daily overdoses, and as you laid out, you know, the the decision making process of the of the of the Minneapolis leadership was wrong from the get-go. It never should have been established. They never should've allowed them to stay there. As long as they did it got to the point where I mean, it became a thing. It was a it was a thing. This was now an entity. I mean, they they felt entitled to stay there. This goes back. They were making demands on political leadership. We talked last hour. There was a story out of reason talking about Yellowstone National Park and how the the companies they're the the tourism industry in Yellowstone National Park. They still get some twenty thousand people visiting during the winter months take advantage of the hiking snowmobiling, it's just a beautiful area. The all of the entities that live within the park that need that, you know, have to have those bathrooms clean that they had the roads plowed. They've all stepped up, and they're dealing with the lack of government employees going there and doing the job because of the government shutdown and we highlighted how the government likes to in the left likes to take away. That that that little bit of hardship or sometimes hard longer hardship. But they want to take away any sort of middle ground hardship. Before you transition to something else having having something removed from your life. Right. And it's a very convoluted way of saying this applies to this homeless situation. Why did they let them stay there because they were in a difficult position in their lives? What would have happened if they would have gone in there and said immediately you cannot set up a camp here along this sidewalk along this highway. You have to go find somewhere else to be right. Yeah. That's it. That would have been if you're gonna stay here. Then we're going to use our law enforcement tools. There is everything to say. There would have been more people alive today. Then there are if the government had stepped up and help people accountable and force them to have to go and make their own decisions. I believe this is at least the fourth death that's associated with this homeless encampments at least the fourth death that I can think of you would have put people in a difficult situation already being in a difficult situation. But people go just like we all do and find solutions to your problems. Right. And those that don't want any help they go on their way, they go and find some other place some other location where they can go and set up their camp because there's a lot of individuals that choose to remain homeless. But there are other people. And that's the problem with what happened with this encampment where there were people that saw the fact that there was this community growing and decided to flock to the camp to take advantage of it. And as we come to find out. Oh, it wasn't just to take advantage of the. Outreach services that were going on. It was taken advantage of the fact that there was DRAM drug use that was taking place there, and it was drug use that they couldn't go and do in shelter. So hey now, they've got a location where they could all get together with other people that are also dealing with hardships. And the government allowed it all to happen. Yeah. Yeah. Their neighboring their neighboring this behavior. Let's go to Patty enforced like good morning. Hey, good morning. Philip. How you doing good good to hear from you Patty could to talk to you too. Hey, look, they elected cry gal Mary Minneapolis before that they elected, right? People are learning right came from the east coast came up here because these feedback on the Mississippi were easy to get elected and comes in and says he wants to take away from this guy, a lunatic, and they elected him down there. How can you expect anything else? Craziness. I mean, forty years ago. These people would have been laughed out of the out of the city. Now, they get elected are you what do you think? I mean, there's there's no hope anymore wrecking Muslims who believe in sharia law. We're lucky communists, store to our to our government over over the day of sanity is over. When it comes to the Minneapolis leadership. There is something to be said that people they get the representation that they won. It's not everybody. Right. And that's why you have to continue to fight right? This is a great region. It's a great area with a lot of opportunity. It is very very unfortunate that so many people are convinced that a choice of activists leadership is the way to go. But that doesn't mean you give up doesn't mean that all is lost and even with Keith Ellison right ushering in a new era for Minnesota's attorney general's office. Right. There was opportunity. And unfortunately, Doug wardlow was unable to be victorious in that election. So now we have to deal with Keith Ellison. But it doesn't mean we just sit back and go well, but it's going to go let them do what he what is going gonna do. No. We have to continue to call it out and expose when the wrong things are being done and his approach is already wrong. And you look at this in here. He's expected to target prescription drug prices housing costs wage theft. And then they want argument here my job as the people's lawyer is to help Minnesotans like, Alex Ford, which I'll get back to you in just a moment afford their lives with dignity and respect to help you for July..

"We'll have obviously all the latest news and weather with Mike guests Nak but live in studio at ten thirty AM. The governor of Minnesota congressman Tim walls will be alive guest. And also the chair of the Minnesota Republican party Jennifer Carnahan right now, we're chatting with Stephen sheer of Carlton college talking about a breakdown of the election on Tuesday. Let me ask you about the governor's race. Certainly Tim walls lead in every single poll. It turned out to be a very decisive win. Yeah. I did fifty three. I'm looking at the numbers right here. Fifty three point nine percent to forty two point four percent never behind in a pool. And of course, the democratic formula this year was to increase their outstayed appeal with a candidate like walls who represented the first district in southern Minnesota for several terms and he managed to do that. He carried a bunch of counties in the southeastern corner of the state looting, always old his old district district, Rochester and actually more. He carried more of those than did Tina Smith who also want to comfortable election, but the state voting for wall site think really sort of bumped up his March. Urgen and he's little electorally strong position. I have to say starting his first term. Right. And that was I mean that that big a win. I think is something that I think does stand out and certainly was it exceeded the even the I think the biggest margins in in the polls. The I know the last people that was published about five days before the election had the race at about eight points, and nobody had double digits and their polls. And so he actually exceeded his poll margins that just reflects also the fact that Democrats have superior resources to the Republicans in terms of money and get out the vote effort, and I tell you the Republicans have a lot of catching up to do. Right. And he also is just you know, I mean, I've covered a lot of people in terms of campaign stops. I mean, this is a very polished speaker. I mean, he somebody who does well sort of the in the one on ones in terms of delivering the speeches. He had a message that he was I it's like he was closing this race. You know, he was sounding this unity theme even weeks ago. Right unity theme was a very smart thing. Because I think if you think about it he was making an implicit argument against the president and the president style, and the prison style really does great on a lot of people, and he was saying he was essentially presenting himself as an alternative approach to politics. One Minnesota will work together. I'm not going to be you know, a polarizing and stigmatizing able right? And I think it's something that he sounded not just in the final week, which I think a number of people try to make that pivot, but he did that earlier on and I think obviously in a very convincing fashion. Let's talk about the Minnesota attorney general's race. Because this one was just a race. That was so volatile and yet congressman Ellison pulled it out. Yeah. Well, he did with only about a four point margin, which was significantly smaller than you've found for Koba char worse Smith or won't. And I think that what the polling show throughout the fall is says he started the Ellison started in a weak position. When all the charges of domestic abuse were out there. But as the election K got closer and more negative information and advertising about ward LOKI came out. He was able to actually a move up in the pools and benefited I think tremendously by the very large turn out in the metro area. Particularly end up in county is home district. You know, I they their turnout with seventy seven percent which is hired. Wow. Wide presidential turn out. I you know, I had not heard that's turn out in Hennepin was Seventy-seven seventy cents. Statewide was about sixty four percent. Wow. Usually about a usually are turn out in midterms is about fifty percent and presidentially at seventy five percents. So we had sixty four percent statewide and seventy seven percent in the midterm and end up. And that simply reflects the fact that Democrats do a very good job of getting out urban voters. Right. And and which is in contrast actually, though to four years ago. Yeah, we're we're we're the democratic vote was basically suppressed there were fewer Democrats. A lot fewer Democrats that came out in two thousand sixteen. In the metro area. Right. And I think for two reasons first many of them found Hillary Clinton to be an uninspiring candidate. And Secondly, a lot of thought. Well, Trump can't win. He's been behind in the polls, and he's a very controversial figure. Well, both those things will be gone. Right. Yeah. And I do think, you know. I I think that there were a lot of things I think I think you raise a really good point. Because I think that. Congressman Ellison ran this race as if he was way ahead, you know, without really talking about Mr. ward lows record. And and in the positions, he had advocated for the work he had done for the alliance defending freedom and really just didn't get into that at all until a couple of weeks before the election. I also think that the release of the divorce records congressman Ellison's divorce records from his first from his wife. Again, we been married to for twenty five years. I think helped him because it it didn't show any issue. They've been married in a pretty tumultuous marriage. She she admitted. Acknowledged that she had suffered from mental illness and was deeply troubled. For some of that. I mean, I think that helped him, and then I also think that ward lows comments that he was gonna fire forty two. Yeah. Democrats in the Minnesota attorney generals. I mean, people were kind of going what you know, these are attorneys. They're they're working on consumer issues. It's not a suspect to be a partisan place. And I think I think that really hurt him that was a big unforced error and he really couldn't afford any unforced errors in running any year. Like this. When Democrats were trending is such a positive direction. Right. But but seventy seven percent while that that's I had not actually that that explains. A lot about what happened in the state. Right. The it. It certainly does obviously Senator Clovis are once again pulling in enormous numbers, which is I think credit to her that that in this. State that is divided even though Republicans are having trouble getting statewide offices. I mean, pulling in these kinds of numbers, I is is quite a feat. Yeah. Well, of course, Jim Neuberger had no money and ran his campaign out of his basement. So when you facing opponent like that, you can run up good numbers. But she is a genuinely popular and can probably be a US Senator as long as he wants to be. And that's the question. That's right. We'll see run for president or not. It's quite possible. We'll have as many as twenty presidential candidates running for the democratic nomination and twenty twenty and if there are twenty I wouldn't doubt that she'd be one of those. And when do they have to make up their mind? Oh, well, some of them already made up their right energised, finding it. So what is the latest? You really can't. I think you have to. I would say golly, I would say by the by the middle of next year, frankly, by June of next year would be the absolute latest because everything starts up, you know, the fundraising is such an arduous thing, and you have to campaign and fifty states, and you have to develop infrastructure camping infrastructure and a whole bunch of state, and that takes months and months and months. The other. Obviously your Senate race Senator Tina Smith that race looked like it was going to be a lot closer. And it turned out not to be that close. That's right. And I two things that I think really disadvantage both Johnson than Housley Johnson. The governor candidate and house lead the Senate candidate the GOP. They didn't have resources they were greatly outspent by independent groups, and by the incumbent, so you, and if you're if you're a challenger to a better known incumbent, you've got to either match or exceed their resources and neither Johnson nor Housley I came close to that. Right. And I did talk to a supporter of Senator carseat Senator KARN. Housley who did kind of the Mon the fact that the national Republican senatorial committees did not pump money into Minnesota. And they pointed to that and they didn't. But I guess it was. It was a sort of the situation with you know, there's a certain amount of resources, and you wonder at what point was that game plan drawn up was drawn up before even Al Franken resigned. Yeah. Exactly. Well, yeah. I think that you know, she ended up losing by eleven points. So it's hard to see how it digital resources could have reversed that because as we see the state it was a democratic year. I mean, this was a Blue Wave in Minnesota. I don't think you can generalize that to the country's the whole 'cause you have resulted very from regions region. But in Minnesota, there was definitely a Blue Wave, and I can understand why the national Republican senatorial committee, did not put Minnesota honest priority was they had a lot of other inviting targets some of which were successful for right? And and it's it's again, it's it's kind of the just you know, how many resources you have. And you just have a finite number of resources or amount of resource. That you can plow in exactly want to talk about we have take a quick break at one talk about some of these congressional races. And then also the fact that the Minnesota house all one hundred and forty I always forget how many members there are one hundred and forty three is anyway a lot. Yeah. Hundred thirty four hundred thirty four there. There you go on that did flip after some promises from from some gun control groups pro gun control group said that they were gonna flip that want to ask Mr. sheer about that. So so keep it right here folks who wouldn't take a quick break. More with Stephen share after this on NewsRadio eight three zero WBZ CEO.

"Hartman and boy all center on news talk eight three oh w. It is ten oh five. And so far the night belongs, the Democrats and the margins at this point. Are enormous. Now, we still have many different precincts that have not reported any and yet many those might be related to greater Minnesota. But we have victories for Tim walls. Amy klobuchar and Tina Smith will also have some significant momentum in the house, the state house towards the Democrats, we expect Tim walls, the next governor of the state to address family members, friends and supporters, and that's where our own Susie Jones. Is it sounds festivities should be fast. If what are you seeing right now, Susie? Well, there are a lot of very happy people here tonight at this DFL party headquarters in Saint Paul at the intercontinental hotel, and as you just mentioned, Chad, we were just given I suppose we're about five minutes away now from Tim walls, the some assumed governor elect of the state of Minnesota will take the stands as you just said, but really? There's a lot of optimism in the state of Minnesota around here tonight a lot of wins as you mentioned Tina Smith, and and then others at the state level. So. I mean, there's very happier. Let's put it that way. We listen in when Amy klobuchar spoke, you pointed out, the Tim walls is about to speak. Anybody else who has had a victory tonight. If they spoken to the crowd. No, actually, it's interesting. It's. Well, Ken Martin the chair of the party spoke. Also, the mayors of both Minneapolis and Saint Paul spoke other than Columbus. We've not heard from many candidates yet. And obviously Tina Smith would be a likely candidate tonight. I'm not sure yet how hot what the. Margin is on the Keith Ellison were low it appears that at this point that Ellison has a much better chance to win. No one has called at nobody here. Looking at the data believes it should be called. However, dean Phillips has one others have one Erik Paulsen. Spotted Republicans about an hour ago and considering how contested and now expensive that race was I would have guessed by now that the new congressman the congressman elect Phillips would have spoke. But he obviously has not. Yeah. So we're, you know, it's it's how the evening goes. Chad. You continue to walk.

The Minneapolis police union endorsed Jeff Johnson for governor news conference with Johnson union. President Bob crawl pretty cool. He said Jeff is a proven leader of law enforcement said Lieutenant Bob Crow. I'm president of the police officers federation of Minneapolis. We don't have to guess where he stands on law and order training support for officer pay and benefits. The only other thing I wanted to point out drew was that do represented candidate and Representative Tim walls, during didn't even bother to show up for any for any of the meetings or anything probably was afraid of pissing off his base, and actually, you know, seeking the endorsement of the police union, I think would would certainly not play well with a certain segment of the DFL based right now not after these last couple of years, and the the thing the line that I think really stood out to me is we know we're Jeff Johnson stands. That's the biggest issue that. I think a lot of people have with Tim walls is we don't know where he stands because depending on which audience he's talking to he's pandering with an entirely different message. Get pretty cool. It's pretty cool to see and good and good for good for Jeff. Pain. In all of punditry, Jesse Kelly. Good morning. Me. It'd be the first one to tell you. How humble he is.

"Three IOT, dot I this is morning edition from NPR news I'm David Greene king good morning on, Tuesday in Minnesota Tim walls won the democratic nomination for governor What is notable is that he did it without. The backing of the National? Rifle Association just two years ago walls ran for reelection to the US, house and the NRA donated to his campaign but while running for governor he has disavowed their support walls took. The. Eighteen thousand dollars the NRA gave him over the course of. His, political career and donated it. To charity so is it a change of heart is it political expediency or is it, a shift in the Democratic Party Reid Epstein. Is a reporter for the Wall Street Journal who's written extensively about the Democratic Party and gun control and he joins me now in studio read. Good morning good morning so we started with that story about Tim walls but really we could have picked any number of Democrats who seem to be turning. Their backs on the NRA are we reading that, right and if we are what's going on during the two thousand twelve campaign the, NRA donated to thirty House Democrats this year, they donated to three or looking at a. Couple of things here one is the. RA has become, a far more partisan organization essentially only. Backing Republicans and two it has become much More difficult for Democrats with. Pro gun positions to explain those positions to primary voters why because democratic voters have turned against the NRA. And are much more in, favor of new restrictions on gun ownership background checks bans on. Assault weapons etc we're seeing this all across the country anthropometric is a primary for how. Seed in Arizona in two thousand ten? She was on television? With ads bragging about her NRA rating now she's on? TV with ads bragging about her support for Seoul weapons ban I want to ask you about two in. Particular he wrote this op Ed in, a in a, local paper. Where he essentially said look I've taken money from, the NRA in the past I'm a father I'm a former teacher I'm former coach I think about those people. In parkland Florida and my? Mind has changed candidates that have had NRA support in the past have, to have some sort of explanation for what has happened with their positions the district's that are competitive now for. The, Democratic Party are in the suburbs then the suburbs the types. Of voters that are coming out. Particularly democratic primaries are Educated wealthy suburbanites particularly women people who have kids coming. Home? From school telling them about the active shooter drills that has really done a lot to activate the subset of. Voters who, are in favor of, gun. Control and Eric are seeing it as. A issue really for the first time in two thousand eighteen that is. Motivating people to vote and so. Things have changed we would. Assume because of a number of. Very very high profile mass shootings, when I. Have written about this in talking to elected officials. They say before sandy hook there was no one on the other side to make, this, push in politicians like it or not react to. Piles of postcards. And phone calls that. Come into their. Offices and for years they only heard, from. People who supported the NRA's position because the NRA was and remains very good at acting their voters to pressure elected officials how much weight isn't NRA endorsement. Have in two thousand eighteen in a democratic primary not that much in what, we've seen in, really for the first time in two thousand, eighteen we've seen Democrats putting gun control front and center in their paid media in their t._v. advertising in two thousand fourteen something like thirty five percent of all ads that mentioned guns and the n._r._a. were run by democrats and a good percentage of those were democrats touting their n._r._a. credentials this year sixty three percent of all ads mentioning guns are run by democrats in virtually all of them are pushing their gun control positions it's really been a total shift on how democrats are pushing this issue front and center well let me ask you something let's say democrats do win control of the house in november do you expect we could be looking at gun control legislation mike thompson who chairs the house democrats gun control caucus or gun violence prevention group has said that it will come very soon in a new congress if democrats take the majority of the house my sense is that they'll start with issues that they think have broad support background checks that's issue that in polling has eighty five to ninety percent support an assault weapons ban will be a little trickier but of course all of this is Relatively academic because President Trump isn't gonna sign him to like this do you think that a pro-gun democrat can. Get elected in a primary in two thousand, eighteen very difficult there have not been any program Democrats that have one democratic primaries in. Two thousand eighteen that I know of to this point read I've seen as. A reporter for the Wall Street Journal. Rethink so much, coming in thank you The death of the legendary.

Hook there was no one on the other side to make this push in politicians, like, it or not react to piles of postcards and. Phone calls that. Come into their offices. And for years. They only heard from people who supported, the. NRA's position because the NRA was and remains very good at activating their voters to pressure elected officials how much weight isn't NRA endorsement have in two. Thousand eighteen in a democratic primary not that much in what we've seen in, really for the, first time in two thousand eighteen we've seen, Democrats putting. Gun control front and center, in their. Paid media in their TV advertising in twenty Fourteen something like thirty five percent of all adds it mentioned guns or the NRA were run by Democrats and a good percentage of those were Democrats touting their NRA credentials this year sixty three percent of all ads mentioning guns run by Democrats in virtually all. Of them are pushing their. Gun control positions it's really been a total shift, on how Democrats are pushing. This issue front and center well let me ask you something, let's say Democrats do win, control of the house in November do you expect we could be looking at gun control legislation Mike Thompson who chairs the House Democrats gun control caucus or gun violence prevention.

All of this is relatively academic because President Trump isn't gonna sign him to like this do you think A pro gun democrat can get elected in a primary in two thousand eighteen very. Difficult there have not been any program Democrats that have one democratic primaries in. Two thousand eighteen that I know of.
