"Again, that debating me will only elevate my name recognition and he's not interested in giving my campaign any credibility. But that's just, I mean, I've been on everything from MSNBC all the way to TMZ and anything in between. And so it's just an excuse that doesn't work for me. And I think that it's really insulting to the people of Alabama and cynically his constituents that he doesn't really know who he works for. Definitely. So I have been looking a little bit at the numbers in this district. You know, of course, there there's no real pulling than I can see in the district end, the cook rating is pretty Republican. It's been voting pretty Republican presidential elections. As you noted. Did Mike Rogers has been in office for sixteen years? But you mentioned it's so diverse and you know, it's like twenty six percent African American and three percent Hispanic. And it seems like the kind of district that the kind of election that Doug Jones pulled off that you know there there could really be some room here. Absolutely. And I know when when people say Alabama's, read or fish, strict is pretty Republican, there's there's been an attack on voting rights here in our state, and we're seeing that in Georgia. We're seeing across the country. You know, one of the things that Alba did was passed the butter ideal and then subsequently closed the vs. And so we know we've been really been struggling to make the people's voting rights are protected. And so that's first and foremost, and we all know how voter suppression works and the communities that impacts most since we've seen that across our district for sure. But the energy here is enthusiastic. One of the things that the Doug Jones race did was really organized our state democratic parties. So are. County party. They're seeing a membership grows every month and people because Doug Jones did pull out a win, know that it's possible. And one of the things that I think is really interesting is that you know in the south and maybe across the country, but very specifically where I grew up, that was, we don't talk religion and you don't talk politics. And what we're seeing is that they're all these people who really are Democrats who have just sort of been in hiding because it's been so socially unacceptable to be one in. So Doug Jones raise really let people know and pull people out from underneath their their show a little bit. And they're like, oh, there are more people who think like me. Perhaps we might be in the majority if we just mobilize voters. And so there's a lot of energy in that direction. And the other thing that we're seeing here, energy wise is our young people. This district has eleven college campuses. We've got to HPC's Tuskegee university in Talladega college. They've got Auburn university, as I mentioned. Nd and Jacksonville state. And then a lot of small community colleges in between. And these young voters have been energized and excited through things like March for our lives and the kids at parkland. I think that they're watching and witnessing the rhetoric. It's happening on both sides of the aisle in the last couple of years and realizing that their voice does matter and that they can make a difference if they get out and vote. So a lot of energy on our college campuses too. And that's what's most exciting to me because when I made the decision to run, I said, this will be a win win, no matter what even if I don't win with the following that I've had in the name recognition that I had prior to even running there are a lot of young is on me all the time. And so there's plenty of young people across this country who are watching this race who are following my Instagram and looking at my Instagram stories, and many of them have reached out and said, because you're running for office, I'm inspired to run for city council or inspired to run for SEA or. Whatever it may be. And that's what most important here is that this this campaign and election cycle inspires other young people and specifically other young women to get involved in the process..
