Sorry to cut you off there. Let me bring back in Katie, Or who is up in Sacramento and Katie. I know you've been keeping an eye on some of the Competitive congressional races. CD 21 where it's a rematch between the incumbent TJ Cox, who defeated Republican David Valid ao very last House race to be called. It was called weeks after the election. It was so close. What do you saying there? Do? We have many numbers in that district at this point? Yeah, we do have some numbers in that district. With just about 17% of the precincts reporting TJ cocks, the Democrat incumbent actually, trails David valid ao about 45% to 55% So again ah, valid ao taking at least in early on early lead in that in that race, you know this is a rematch from 2018. It was really close last time so close, in fact that valid Ao was initially declared the winner on election night. And then, then Cox would narrowly narrowly won. It includes parts of Kings County, Fresno to Larry current counties. And you know, Clinton actually carried that county in 2016, but valid. L was reelected in that election, So it just shows you how split that particular district is, and I think it could be Kind of Ah, harbinger of where the Central Valley is going as more people moving another race. We're keeping a close eye on is a congressional district 25. That was a seat. That was a pickup for Democrats two years ago, and then Katie Hill resigned. Mike Garcia Republican picked up that seat in a special election. He's running again, as he did in that special against Democrat Kristy Smith. In that seat in northeastern Los Angeles County. What do you see? So right now, Kristie Smith has a 60% of the vote to Mike Garcia's 40% again very early numbers, but so that would indicate that perhaps it might be a very competitive race. There There is. This is a more pro Trump district, the many swing swing districts in California, but Kristy Smith has been playing defense for her vote in favor.

I mean, one thing that is is we look at the California results right now. One of the things that we've been doing is comparing the results for president versus a ballot proposition.

"And indeed if you look in the state of California as a whole at this point there were seven congressional districts heading into election night that Hillary Clinton had won in two thousand sixteen but also had elected a Republican Representative who at least a month ago represented the district and Democrats flipped all those district blue, and there's one more outstanding CNN cold, right? I should say that I am to be perfectly clear. I am forecasting that to go. Blue looked TJ Cox democrat right now holds a lead of I believe about half a percentage point that seems to be climbing. It's a close race. It's within a thousand votes, but based upon the votes that are outstanding. To ask any knowledgeable. Politico out in California. TJ Cox is going to be the next Representative from the twenty first district. But it's interesting that a month later, they're still a race. It hasn't officially been called. In fact, what we saw in the wake of election night a month ago is that the networks had to withdraw several calls moving that one across the country. They were a number of races of I think it leads three or four races that were called by various networks, then they had to be retracted because the results shifted now to some degree that's normal that happens every midterm year. Right. But maybe it happened a little more this. Yeah. You know, you should expect essentially one out of every two hundred races to be called incorrectly. You know, that's the sort of the line is has to be ninety nine point five percent. Sure. And unfortunately, it did seem that this time around those errors almost magnify whether that be Georgia's seven fishes there was so much voting because this was a historic right, right? There was so much voting patterns were not necessarily what we thought they were going to be going into the election. In, you know, in California, for instance, they have passed a new law that essentially allowed for something called ballot harvesting, which meant that people could go around and collect other people's ballots and deliver them for them. Obviously, those people would fill out those ballots, and then they'd seal them, and then these people help deliver them and Democrats made a concerted effort to get those irregular voters to actually cast those ballots and have them counted. But that I think really changed the game. And what you saw were a lot more of those late breaking ballots in California ended up being democratic leaning than we were used to seeing and the headline from the Los Angeles Times this week. It says how was about harvesting used in California elections. There are publicans in the state saying this cost the GOP some votes there is there's been real to that. I think it absolutely costs votes. But you know, each year the job of each political party is to go out and figure out ways within the law within reason to find as many votes as you can for your side and Democrats. Knew what the law was now versus in the past and they were able to do. So there was nothing wrong with what they did. I should point out that and not every state is ballot harvesting a legal exercise. But in California, it most certainly is and everything that we've read and seen suggests that what the Democrats did was on level. It just was unusual in different Republicans didn't bring the Ray game in this particular case. So in California it happened. It was legal. But then there's this questions in North Carolina about the nine congressional seat. And this is also about ballot harvesting, isn't it? Yes. It is partially. I mean, it's partially about ballot harvesting, but it's partially about a whole slew of things. So for instance, in the state of North Carolina vote by mail absentee ballots. You can't you cannot ballot harvest that is against the law. And there are a number of sign affadavits that suggests that in fact that occurred multiple ones, but that's not all that happened. We have not just signed voter affidavits. We have actual people who did one woman who did the ballot harvesting who admitted that she did it and was on camera doing interview with a local television station there. And let me tell you. If you're talking about media stories, the North Carolina local media has been on top of this in a way that I.

That would be neutral for the economy that is neither speeding up nor slowing down growth Powell did not dispute speculation that the fed will raise rates in December.

The Dow rose more than six hundred points. This is NPR and this KCRW at four thirty two. Good afternoon. I'm Steve Chia. Take is from the central. Valley of California Democrat TJ Cox is now claiming victory in a race over incumbent Republican congressman David validation show and other media outlets including the LA times are also calling that race. Now, it is yet another pickup for Democrats bringing their total to forty seats flipped since the midterm election more than three weeks ago. The most up to date vote count has Cox increasing his lead in that California farm belt district he trailed in the vote until Monday and increased his lead to more than five hundred votes as they were tallied today. Those updated numbers released by kings into Larry county votes are still being counted in the district's two other counties, Fresno and Kern, but balloting from those areas have favored Cox in post-election day updates prompting him to declare the race over. It is important. However to note that valejo has not conceded the race in the wake of Cox's announcement today. Cox's an engineer who found a couple of nut processing businesses and on the campaign trail, he lashed out at valid in ads as a foot soldier for the Trump administration who enjoyed government health benefit.

But the program was soon revamped to help with immigration verification since then more than forty people have been deported based on information.

Now before the six o'clock, we're still taking your calls and comments if you'd like to regarding shutting down the government. And again, there's one of our listeners, rob Fred texting into the show. There's a story on Breitbart about the prisoner killed someone hours after he was released wonder if he would have been one of the nonviolent offenders released under the left wing prison reform policy that the president supports. He supports parts of it. I mean, again, if you if you listen to the president carefully when he was announcing his support for the Bill he made there was a couple of asterisks moments in the men that announcement. But again, you gotta be careful in any kind of a prisoner reform Bill, which I have quoted the prisoner release Bill. It's five thirty seven twenty three before the hour, and whether or not you think the government should be shut down over the wall funding. I'd love to hear from you on that. And who's going to get blamed I think we all know with the media, and the Democrats, but the last shutdown the Schumer shutdown as it has been dubbed didn't go all that well for the Democrats. So maybe things are changing big win last night in Mississippi on they're still counting votes was a runoff election in Mississippi. President Trump congratulating Senator Cindy Hyde Smith. Quote on your big win in the great state of Mississippi. We're all very proud of you undergrowth in one thing is for sure. Again, and Twitter's out there with some headline that GOP narrowly defeats my guess, what was an eight point win fifty four to forty six. There's not a narrow, but that's how they were trying to couch this. But again, the GOP wasn't taking any chances in this particular case, and I'll tell you the significance of it in just a moment. But let me let me tell you what they what they committed in resources there. The president come into Mississippi twice to do rallies. You had the Republicans said more than one hundred operatives to the state to run a massive ground gained at turn out the vote and spent three million dollars on TV going after the democrat, former clintonistas, Mike Espy, so they wanted to make sure that they got that message across and they did so clearly going to need that kind of herculean effort in two thousand twenty now she becomes the first elected woman female Senator from the state of Mississippi. So this is an. Historic election in Mississippi. But it's not couched in those terms by the media. She was appointed to fill the seat of Thad Cochran. And of course, that's why she was the incumbent. But again, she'll have to this was a special election, and then I run off election and to run again two years from now in twenty twenty but the significance of this fifty third seat. And let me tell you why it is it is important it is crucial that no time was the majority ever in question. Because Republicans even if she lost would've had fifty two. But this is why at least in this session, and the lame duck session of congress that gives Mitch McConnell three votes to spare when it comes to confirming President Trump's judges, and that's right now, you don't have to worry about Collins, amber, Cal ski, although Collins did the right thing with just Justice Calvin all you don't have to worry about them. Murkowski, of course and flake who is. Valid now do not support any of the presence judicial nominees on his way out the door. Don't let it hit you on the backside there flake out. But now going forward in the new congress Democrats control the house, and that means that they're not going to really be any major legislation coming out of of congress over the next two years and Democrats aren't going to work with Republicans on this even on infrastructure. I doubt you'll find any kind of meaningful legislation. This will be love gridlock congress. The only thing they're going to be able to get done in the Senate because what you have right now you've got both bodies promising vowing to investigate the other. You gotta logic comings and Pelosi galore, and Adam Schiff and mad magazine all vowing the subpoenas are going to be flying all over they're going to be looking at a vodkas emails everything the president does will be under and the president saying all right? You wanna play that game? Will have the Senate investigate who was leaking classified information and everything that you do on the democrat side, we will investigate. So it's going to be gridlock. But can we accept that? So the only thing that is going to happen is the judicial nominations of the president are going to be advanced. That's the only thing the Senate really is going to be able to do over the next two years or so and with three votes now, here's only fifty Utai vote goes to vice president Pence, you can lose Collins, you can lose Murkowski, and you got another vote despair just in case. So you have that one you had that one vote with fifty one now with fifty three Frank you can lose some of these rhinos and not cave in to their demands. And get your nominees through free and clear, and that's about the only thing I think it's going to be able to do over the next couple of years. Well, as I said the other day, I mean, I thought this election was crucial just for that reason. For the the judgeships that are vacant right now. And we'll be vacant. And there could be in the very near future, depending on a lot of circumstances. Here. There may be another opportunity for President Trump to nominate a another supreme court Justice. So this three vote margin that the Republicans now enjoy actually it's almost like six votes because that the spread between what the Republicans have. And the Democrats have is six fifty three to forty seven. So this gives them a little bit more of a cushion. So that they don't have to. Worry about a couple of senators who are always uncertain just Lisa Murkowski and Susan Collins. So from that standpoint, I think it's most important and important to the point where. Whatever judges that the president is going to be able to get through are going to be obviously a conservative type. Judges can constitutionalists. That are going to be a point, and that's going to have a longer lasting effect here on this country than any two year term in congress or six year term in the Senate or even a four year term in the White House. Again, you can not the way Obama went about it and transforming America remember five days prior to the election in two thousand eight he said, we're just five days away from transforming this nation and the way he went about transforming it as we did the the stats as we were signing off yesterday. They are indeed Obama judges and drum judges or a living breathing changing constitution judges versus the can the construction is stored the originalist. However, you want to refer to these these judges, so yeah, you are going to see a lot more. And by the way, that this president and the first two years was term mortgages confirmed and just about any other president in history that is going to continue at a record pace. So we hopefully we'll get that through. But that's why it's so important. Meanwhile, a democrat is now on the verge of unseating an incumbent, California, Republican congressman this is three weeks after the election. And this is a democrat TJ Cox overtook an incumbent congressman David Dale was was up by almost six and a half points on election night. Curiously he crushed TJ Cox whose primary addressed by the ways in Bethesda, Maryland. During the primaries but a late ballot count Monday. Put Cox ahead by four hundred thirty six votes. So all of Orange County turned blue three weeks after the election. I don't think this is a Blue Wave this. This is blue fraud. This is what we have going on in California. And Matt Whitaker ought to get busy in the Justice department and start investigating the election irregularities. Immediately five forty five.

Hey, steve. Hey, brian. Yeah. So with Mississippi, look, they're still counting the final votes in the final outstanding counties. Once all of that is done in. It is finally official one hundred percent. We will be done with all the Senate races this year. So a complete look at where the Senate stands, you can see if you had the decimal points, you're on the screen, basically is looking like about a seven point win tonight for Cindy heights. Smith, maybe a little bit more over Mike Espy, again, the closest Democrats have been in Mississippi since one thousand nine hundred eighty eight the last time they got one to single digits in the Senate race. But this is a loss for the Democrats night. We were showing you earlier look strong support for Mike Espy and the heavily black counties of the delta long the Mississippi River all. Also strides for Democrats. This is a story. We saw a nationally. We saw it across the south. We didn't see it in parts of Mississippi tonight suburbs of Memphis here looked as sodo county. One of the fastest growing counties in the state warned the largest counties in the state. He did see a ten point jump there for SP from how Hillary Clinton did just two years ago in this state. So that speaks that democratic formula of strong non white support. They trying to flip so sort of white college educated professionals there were parts of Mississippi. They did that tonight there just weren't enough parts like that in Mississippi residual strength ra- height. Smith, those white rural areas Democrats have really been struggling with voters knows parts of the country. And certainly in Mississippi so not enough for them in Mississippi. We say though, the Senate picture now complete as a result of Mississippi. It means when all said and done Democrats end up with forty seven Republicans ended up with fifty three. Remember started the campaign? It was fifty one forty nine so Republicans do gain to on that front quickly. We end on the house because. Guess what? The house is not over yet. There remains one uncalled race here. See if I can pull it up on the screen lower right hand, we get there. You can also get it right there. That's that's the wrong district, Brian. I'm sorry.

"It is time for the ballot show. Something you wait for every time. We have an election and if also on Facebook live on camp chase Facebook periods. She'd grab it there as well. Michael dramatic junior is joining me as always. How are you, sir? I'm good. I think this is like twenty five years or something crazy. Really? I mean, we can't be that old have a cake or something. Celebrate this one well midterms in a general way. How are we going to do? The fact that the talk of a Blue Wave is all but dissipated and that control of the house of representatives kind of being representatives. A coin flip now is in itself sort of historic because only four times in the last hundred years as the opposition party failed to flip the house in the first midterm. So I don't know how we're going to do. It's I think we're going to be it's going to be interesting night. I think you know, conventional wisdom is the US Senate looks pretty good for a hold. And I think that's important because we gotta get that judiciary filled out and get those nominees through the system in the next couple of years a hold any gains. There could be some gains. Yeah. Yes. Some tough races. There you've got Tennessee's tougher Republicans. You've got a former governor running against a member of congress. But you've got pickup opportunities in North Dakota and Missouri and Indiana, West Virginia. So I think probably a net. I could see a net gain of two to three seats and Senate Democrats keep talking about how they're going to grab the house. I don't know how that's possible. It's all turned out. Ray amine. It's it's not possible. If people are energized on on our side, and you know. Unwittingly. The cavenaugh matter may have done that. We don't know that we just don't know. And. Yeah. And and you know, it's. To me predictability, there's the difficult. There's no agenda. Neither party has an agenda. Democrats are running on nothing Republicans are really running on a tax cut and an economy and some of the things that have happened while they'd been in control, but there's not much of an agenda out there that we grabble. Getting into it right now in California graces, the ballot stuff in the propositions and all that looking at some state right raises. You know, I'm not gonna probably go through all of them. Because I mean, it's a given the Democrats are gonna rule. It Cox got any chance at all. No. I don't think he does. It's the voter registrations too difficult, but beyond that the the brand of republicanism in California is very damaged. And so the one person that has a chance made a decision to not run as a Republican this time in that Steve poison. I was going to ask you if there's anybody in the state wide races. That's not a democrat has a chance there is it Steve poisoner and insurance. Commissioners and Steven great guy. You really know about Steve. But Steve invented the GPS chip is every cell phone in the world. He's smart. He's also smart enough to know. He did some polling before he announced it if you ran with an r after his name that he lose by twenty points. And if you ran as no party preference he'd win. So he ran is no party preference. And that's why he's doing it. It's a watershed election from the standpoint of if he wins. You will see a flood of other people running as no party preference. Statewide NPP, and it could change the face of California politics could very well congressional races. Jim Kosta versus Elizabeth hang. Know, I don't have a feel for this one. I think she had a chance I really do butter campaign sucks. I don't live in the district. It's really easy to be in love with her as a candidate. Because she's very smart talented represents herself. Very well. Pena's week. I'm disappointed. It's you know. It's hard to say costs a tough person to beat really doesn't have any compelling reason to be reelected hasn't done anything. She's saying that now finally in her ads. I just don't know. I mean, I, you know, we do know that this race will be inside a four or five points. Yeah. And and does and it's all about s- southwest, Fresno and southeast Fresno, the whole campaign because she will sweep everything to the north of Fresno county, and it's all about the margins in south, Fresno. And that's where she's from. So does that whole swayed is up pony weight? She's the kind of candidate if let's say she doesn't win. She's the kind of candidate could come back as no party preference in two years and win easily. Because again in a lot of immigrant communities and a lot of communities that are that are in the south of Fresno. The Republican brand is is just it's Nuff to not vote for somebody. So I think cost is running a campaign that he believes his competitive busy has to he came out negative against her two three weeks ago. And to me that's an indication that he feels like he's got to put some distance between him and her does she beat him outside of Fresno to the north beats him everywhere. Thought of Fresno. Yeah, everywhere. Yeah. I I would agree that there's a good chance for that. So. In the district, Twenty-one validation and TJ Cox, and that whole controversy with Cox the home in Maryland. And you know, where does the guy truly live and all that stuff? I don't think validates in any kind of trouble NIA, nor do I he's he's fought off much better candidates and TJ Cox in the past Cox's campaign is entirely about resisting Trump and something about what Valdo did on healthcare, which isn't true. So Valla deals defied the odds every two years since he was first elected people people in his district like him. And he's connected to the district. TJ Cox isn't from the district in actually switched district's originally filed a run against Jeff Denham in the north and then switched. And so I mean, he's he's the he's the perfect definition of a carpetbagger, and interloper whatever you wanna call it. You know? Anything can happen in politics. But if I had to say today who I thought would win I think it'd be David. Oh, absolutely. Yeah. Let's let's roll up to the mountains a little bit and talk about Tom McClintock versus Jessica Morris. I don't think McClintock some trouble slam dunk, slam dunk. No. And of course, district twenty. Devin newness versus Andrew Janse. We are we're witnessing history here. This is the Andrew Johns, you they say he's raised money. He has raised any money at all people are throwing money against Devin Nunes, angry Democrats who somehow believe Russia. So glad you said that flipped tat way counties, you know, five thousand counties or something like that United States, and somehow Russia changed the outcome in in these counties and Devon stonewalling, blah, blah, blah. You know what? So throwing seven million dollars a chance you can't spend more than two million dollars here. It's I mean, every dollar you spend over two million is just a waste of money. It's like throwing it down the toilet. You got seven million. And so, you know, if you happen to be up at three o'clock in the morning, you'll see Janet's on Seinfeld reruns. And you see chance on everywhere. And I it's just I've seen the polling in this race and may two and the undecided has been under three. Percent since April. So now, but I always hedge my predictions people gotta show up and vote, right? But the polling I've seen you know. It's it's always been a long shot and the district is carved out to be a Republican district. It is it is it's gerrymandered. It's a gift to the Republicans. It said GOP district. I just wonder if act blue which is the aggregate or for all the campaign money for Japan's will ask for that money back because. I don't see how we spend seven million. I just don't, you know? And I don't think he's a very good candidate eater. He's not. No, he's not as a whig candidate just a young guy who's trying to act tough. And and you know, I I don't know. It's the word is out. He's trying to make a name for himself and save it for another day and another race. You know, maybe. Couple of assembly races. Jim was just here. Why not let's talk about him versus alien radio. I think no worry about. No. I mean, Jim Jim Patterson's been one of the most effective members of the legislature ever from around here being stuck in the minority party. He still works his rear end off. And he does everything he can possibly do from his position a win easily and he should win. He's a really great Representative very well. One that could be interesting only because of the name recognition of the democrat. And that's Anaconda gyro in the Senate race in district twelve versus rob Poitras who is again running at the old NPP. You know, I mistakenly called him a Republican. That's I'd I'd take that all back mea culpa goofed. But talk to me about that one. I think he's good candidate, you know, on a car bureaus got long record that you can attack. And I think that ad kinda likes her. Yeah. But, you know, listen to all my friends out there, and you you may lot of mistakes politically over the last twenty or thirty years starting with your your romantic affair with Dianne Feinstein and. To the extent you have to nuzzle up to ask in the state because the Democrats have the majority I understand a little of that. But I think this race is a coin toss. And we'll see it's just one of those things we're we're gonna have to find out on election day spinner Feinstein. I'm in this race with her and Kevin daily on. I mean, I'm voting for daily on why? Because I she is she to me. Oh my God. No, I am. I am. I have endorsed him. I am voting for Kevin daily on because she her conduct. Boy, I have to split with you on that one L, and he's a radical leftist. These the anti-crisis resign answered. But, you know, Ray her first of all during the height of our drought when she had a chance to move a water Bill through the Senate that was authored in the house and past she pumped it she she pretended for decades to care about valley water. What's he gonna do? He says we're town full of tumbleweed. Right. So what's the harm? So what's the harm the same result with that guy? And at least you can take him on with a no party preference candidate in in in six years that can run as a centrist and maybe take him out. Maybe right. Yeah. But the other thing her her conduct during the cavenaugh hearings. Yeah. So no way I'm voting for her. Okay. Dokey? Let's see where I wanna go Andy Vitek when here a lot of these ads. We just heard back to back with that back to back but separate about ten minutes. Antibi- Dak Melissa Dotto. I don't know how competitive that is in the real world. But boy did a lot of advertising. He's in good shape. Her campaign, essentially as saying Andy Reid ACA spent all of his time in office trying to kill everybody who lives in district. Absurd. It's funny that it's it's not believable. So you just you listen to her ads and go no human being act like that. While they're water Paul Ryan attack of you know, wheelchairs off the cliff with old people in it. You know? This is the Senate district number eight Andrei Borjas, you know, the Republican versus Paulina Miranda, the democrat that's pretty much a done deal for for dress. Yeah. I would think so probably one of the safest GOP seats left in the in the legislature seems to be seems to be..

"Yes, it's going to happen before we get to that. Let me grab the phone. So I'm not derelict in duty there, Chris. It's all yours. You're on KM. Jay what's going on? Happy Friday starts number one. Haven't we been here before back in? What was it ninety three when Bill collectors something like this with Bruce Babbitt Dianne Feinstein and governor Wilson weapon on I remember that? And then all of a sudden that money and that plan sunsetted disappeared just a couple years later. I remember this was a plan and all the Dow was gonna solve all water problems. I don't know. I do not remember that at all. And you could very well. Correct. But. A different day with different players, quiet. Let me finish. With a different set of people in charge. The the Republicans straight across the boards. Go ahead. Okay. Yeah. It was something that. Devin Nunes had mentioned, and Secondly, it's nice to see that. Jim Acosta finally woke up and realized he has a job to do what the Lisbeth hang chopping this bitch. And and this and water being an issue finally killed the chance campaign him walking around in those cowboy boots for the first time on a creek with fresh wage that had just been trying to pretend that, you know, something about water that ended his campaign. Well, according to some inside sources in some polling that are doing it, basically RNC stuff that particular commercial really ditched him. Because people didn't believe it. They they didn't believe that Devin Nunes has been doing nothing when it comes to water when he's been doing everything and. The the situation with Kosta and hang I don't think he's genuinely that worried about her. I do believe the party is worried about her and the numbers were that close. But it's probably giving them a little bit of nervousness. And therefore they're properly pushing him on this water thing as well. I don't know if that just strictly came from Kosta or not it might have this is only me talking. Now, Chris, I mean, I don't know. It may have been coming from the uppity ups there that hey, we gotta do something. We finally got to perform here because you could be vulnerable. And like, I said earlier, brother. I don't care what it is is long as we get this damn storage. And the and the the president signs it next week. Let's do it. You know, how you knew was the chance. Justin harder and TJ Cox are standing next to Obama jammed is at mansion, and then then Gavin Newsom was in town just the other day TJ Cox's, they're Andrew and very interesting. Isn't it? Yeah. Go ahead. Yeah. Time for him to go back to figure out how to be ADA or go back to that job at McDonald's. He was talking about in that commercial. Chris thank you gotta roll on. There seems to be some distancing of the party from chance. And I don't know the reasons why. But that impression is definitely there. But to want to get too far off the track. Let's get the dams proposal. And then I'll give you conscious proposal that would allow for storage getting it funded in California. Dennis proposal allows local irrigation districts to apply for these low interest federal loans from the Environmental Protection Agency to build new reservoirs also below ground storage project Anthony's recycling and also diesel projects diesel, of course, probably last on the list because it's very very expensive. Now all of this desperately needed in California to capture the reins the runoff from the mountains. So the water can be stored. It can be used in the drier seasons. You know, putting it in the Bank. We understand the concept there right now, theoretically the irrigation districts could eventually easily repay the lower interest loans through the control of the new water sources and having a larger supply of water which would drive down you got it demand and the cost of fresh water throughout the state. So several water storage projects in the state have already been authorized by legislation and there are. Waiting funding. And you all know what they are. And we've personally been involved with them at came. Jane Costa's proposal is interesting. It would allow dams and other water facilities. Regulated by the army corps of engineers but owned by local entities to use non federal funds. This one's a little different a repeat again this would allow dams and other water facilities. Regulated by the army corps of engineers but owned by local entities to use non federal funds. Currently if a report. Reports indicate more water will flow to an area in a certain season. Local Anthony's that owns dams cannot provide money to the army corps of engineers to prepare more storage. Example example, there have to be those have to be federal funds. Even though the dams are not federally owned. I know it's confusing and water storage tends to fall low along a long list of federal priorities. Okay. So interested parties in the San Joaquin valley and in Washington DC. The art so concerned with assigning praise of the politics or the president saying that they just glad like I am that this is finally happening now. A quote again from the Sacramento bee. Some people may think that Denham is pandering to the district, but he's been consistent as long as I know him. That's a quote from Tom orvis, who's a governmental affairs director for Stanislaw county farm bureau, one of the largest, I might add in the state of California. If you wanna be a cynic and believe it was all politics. You can do that cost to says. But I don't think that's accurate. Timing sometimes has to do with politics. But this is a good policy, and we're proud of it. Jim Kosta added. So. This is. A small story nationally. It is a larger than life story as far as we go in this part of California. This is absolutely huge. And the bottom line is the President Trump has to be credited for the passage of this new provision through the the house of representatives went through yesterday that is going to provide the funding to help this state built its first water storage infrastructure in forty years. He said he would do it. And he has done it. And he will and he will sign this next week, and I can guarantee you. I'm certain of this. The Senate is not going to hold this up this time as they had been previously holding up the Bill put together by by by Kevin and David and Devon we can all call a Miller first names now, we know them so well that to still as an intricate part of this and that to ultimately will finally come to pass now when that happens. That's a little different. That's different than storage. The pumps will immediately. Go on. Remember what that one is all about? So and again, you know, I hate to keep playing mystery man here. But there's also something else very big in the works. And I'll say the same thing I said a couple of minutes ago when not if not yet, but when this comes to pass, it's probably going to leave a crater in that area. Where once the gubernatorial mansion sits now in Sacramento, boom. The governor will not be able to handle this one. So this is fabulous news comments questions. I might be able to answer some of the questions four nine zero fifty eight fifty eight eight hundred seventy seven six fifty eight fifty eight remember the population of the state has grown seventy percent. Seven zero percent. We have not built any new storage since nineteen seventy nine. So you can only imagine what kind of a catch up game. We're going to have to go through here. But at least the catch up game we'll start where it's needed the most here in central California, and the president who's been guiding this through, of course, he said that he will absolutely sign this, and it will be signed next week. This is not something that's going to be you know, pushed way down the road. So it's one of those deals where it's outta sight outta mind. We all forget, this is something that President Trump was passionate about when he was campaigning here in central California. When he made the big public address over at the cylinder arena. I think it was. And when he also got together privately with the farmers in the south valley, and we were there. I was there. A both of those occasions, even another private occasion that you don't even know what about when he was here. Visiting with some people one on one he made the same exact pledge and. The shift in policy the one thing. And I've told you this before about the president that really impressed me. And again, this is somebody that Donald Trump we pay came acquainted with thirteen fourteen years ago on a personal basis. I never thought of the time he would become president. He is the most incredible listener. And when it comes to getting up to speed on any subject demand is remarkable remarkable. He's got this. This encyclopedia brain functions. Like, no other people on the other side of constantly saying that he's he's imbalanced. He's mentally unstable. He's this that you have to be incredibly bright and intelligent to do this. And he's a fabulous listener. And again, I've never seen. Anybody come up to speed so fast on the water dilemma in the Santa California has Donald Trump has and yes, he's made mistakes. He's twenty those mistakes to one very notable one when he talked about water and wildfires and he quickly yanked that one back. Did a mea culpa, and then did the research and his homework and presented the credible and the right information. So the man knows what he's talking about. And as a result of that. He's gained a lot of respect with the western representatives who fully understand the water situation. And with that, they those even those Republicans who have been a little bit of doubters, certainly a lot of doubters within the Republican party when it comes to Donald Trump. They have gained a lot more respect for him and working are lot closer with them on a lot of this water stuff. And that's why it's moving so quickly. And that's why we have the speed that we have on what we're talking about right now. So this has been nothing, but good news. Anyway. I'm happy about this..

John was part of the messaging, two thousand six that they got really right with these farm ads were in in rural suburban areas where they said, hey, are you tired of Washington not listening to you? Are you tired of them? You know, all being part of the status quo come and listen to what we have to say. Come see our candidates who are different who are part of your community. And I think that voters still yearn for that and they're willing to put a salad political party. If those candidates have those messages on the point of the very, very much right Selena is that in these places where Trump has won by fifteen sixteen, there is a real energy for Democrats and independent who want fundamental change that. I think you can take advantage of which without necessarily bringing Trump into the conversation, they there's an embarrassment of Trump and there's a real disappointment. As a reason Paul Ryan head for the exits, they know. If he didn't leave on his own, they would've dragged him out on a stretcher anyway, but the but the thing is to be able to have that dial those is not to bring in Trump necessarily sort of like their places where it's helpful, their places where it's not. There are places where it makes sense. But if you think about the type of person, if you look at TJ Cox, I'm an engineer, a businessman, a husband, a father to four children. This is a guy who is the central valley, very rural. He's a guy who's been an engineer. He's a guy who's built water system. So the type of messaging has is the massive water problem that's going on in California and that critical to the central valley Konomi he's dealt with firsthand. He knows it firsthand and it's not. It's not a matter talking points. This guy's understands it and knows it. And you can see the enthusiasm is Selena was talking about in his eyes because he believes it. So to me, that's the kind of thing. It's like, wow, this isn't a politician. This is a problem solver, who's an engineer. I want that guy, but I do want to dive into this though. This debate about Trump and who. He is and what he stands for and Selena talking about how voters how they think through this when they see the president, whether it's separation at the border, whether it's just the tweeting and attacking personally, when they see the stuff about payoffs to playboy mistresses, like, how do they process this and how are they talking about their support or their policies in the context of all of that? Well, my impression with voters on his comportment was that they decided to make a pragmatic choice. So one voter to said to me, look, she voted for Obama twice. She said, you know, for years and years and years politicians have have set the most beautiful things. There words are incredibly eloquent, and, but I also understood that they were focused group sentences, and besides sentences and probably thirteen different staffers. Headlines things to make sure it was perfect. At the end of the day, I didn't get the results that I was looking for with Trump. I can't stand half the things that he says, but I love the results to said. That's sort of where I am right now. And that's what my vote goes for him. At this moment to me, part of the genius of Trump is that it's hateful, it's constant spewing of hate, but but there is this sense I get with the American people that they're now numb to it because it's all caps. It's so outrageous but to his base, it just reinforces. He's not part of the system. He uses curse word team spells his tweets. They're strange, but at least we know he's not part of that system. He's taken it on. So they like that. I don't think it gets old for them, but I think for when you think about others and be in, where do we go from here?.
"tj cox" Discussed on Pod Save America
"Event it's just going to happen we have to make it happen and so the point is we can win all of these districts and i think we can also win the twentyfirst because it is one of the most clinton districts out of all of them and so if we put in the work and turn out those 2016 voters plus new people who are energized because of trump than that is a flippable district there was work to do there and we have and there's a lot later of start because in these other districts democrats have been running for almost a year in some cases they got in right after trump came in office and in the twenty first i believe i think tj cox's the name of the democratic got in the race right before the deadline and so no name id less organization and so we'll we'll see if with some support and some work you can flip that one too but so we're in the game we gotta shot in all of them but it's gonna take real work like we cannot think of this as inevitable it is something we have to work our tails off in worker we've never worked before and all the tools to winner there we just have to we have to do it and one of the reasons that they say the general electorate is a bit more democratic than the primary electorate is because more young people show up in the general election than they do in the primary so this only happens it only gets more that you lectured only gets more democratic in november if we get young people to the polls young people who voted for before young people who've sat out previous midterms which is why the democrats did so horribly in two thousand and ten in two thousand fourteen there was a huge dropoff in young voters so you know we get asked love it said this before but we get asked all the time and when we do our live shows there's always a question like how can i talk to my unbelievably conservative mother who loves trump about you know why she's wrong and i think finally one of the shows lubbock gave the answer don't talk about it don't waste your time and energy on your superconservative mom who loves trump go find.
