Candidates Find It's Not Easy Getting New Yorkers To Sign Their Ballot Petitions During A Pandemic
"Anywhere in the city in the past week or so, you've probably noticed clipboard toting volunteers asking you to sign your name. That's because it's petition season. Each person running for office in New York City needs to collect hundreds of signatures to make it on the ballot. And there are more than 500 people running. W one my CI's Glen Hogan reports. I could you help get a candidate on the ballot for Manhattan Borough President Volunteer Rachel Pratt is collecting signatures in Madison Square Park. Do you think it helps get a candidate on the ballot for Manhattan Borough President Tire? You have registered Democrat in Manhattan? Okay, she's trying to get Kim Watkins on the ballot for Manhattan borough president. And it's tough going in about a half an hour. She's only gotten one person to sign. Well, I think I have to finesse my ass because I've got a up my game that passes another person, also collecting signatures and gets her second of the morning. That girl said. All right, I know what it's like. And you can use your own town values a sympathy signature. Not just anyone. Consign. You got to be a registered voter in the same party as the candidate running. And your address has to be in the district where the races but don't sign for two candidates in the same race. One of those signatures will probably get thrown out cold that has made this election season particularly challenging. I know it's a pandemic, and people have reservations about getting too close and having conversations more than 100 candidates tried to suspend petitioning The judge ruled against them. Last month, state lawmakers did lower the number of signatures required, but they also shortened the time people have to collect those signatures. Lincoln wrestler who's running for City Council, says he tested positive for Cove it right after collecting signatures, and Loree Sutton cited covert concerns about petitioning as one of the reasons she suspended her campaign for mayor. It's like ridiculous that I think may expect people to stop and sign things because, like I probably stop for myself honestly, if I was walking the streets, this is David Estrada also stocking Madison Square Park for some things. I miss. You mentioned Democrat Manhattan. Any chance he's collecting signatures for tally for Haiti, and Weinstein, a candidate for Manhattan. D Yet my gun for hire Yeah. So I just whoever pays me the highest collect signatures for basically honestly and it's all analog. No online petitions here just the serendipity of safely crossing paths with the right person with a clipboard. Thank you so much. Thanks for signing When Hogan W N Y c news form or on the elections
Seattle Seahawks Today: Latest Rumors On A Russell Wilson Trade
"Originally or a few a few weeks ago russell. Wilson's camp released some information that he was unhappy in seattle. They have not formally requested a trade but it seems like the relationship has some conflict there. he has a no trade clause in his contract. There were specific exemptions from four. Team's the cowboys. The saints the bears and las vegas after dak prescott signed is extent like talked about and the raiders recently have back derek carr. They've given their full support. They they wanna move forward their cars. So that really leaves the saints and the bears as the final two candidates for possibly getting russell wilson this offseason so saints are always in salary cap trouble From what. I've learned about the salary cap they can. They ended up being able to just move money around when they need to. But they're always close to reaching that point so they're always during the cat but it seems unlikely that they will be able to make a move for quarterback this price in this caliber. So when you re comes down to it. The bears like the front runners as the most desperate team. Four quarterback if you've watched the nfl shares have always had quarterback issues. They've been in quarterback hell so to speak for the past two decades and russell. Wilson could come in and immediately fix that so the bears are desperate. And i see the bears as the front running candidate to lead russell wilson or land russell. Wilson this offseason. So when did all this start with russell. wilson is come out of nowhere I would say to myself when i first saw. Russell wilson wants out. I was shocked. But although it's not that cut and dry comes down to russell wilson. Mp carol's relationship. So they've won a superbowl. They made playoffs made. They made the playoffs. Eight times in the last nine seasons which is absurd. It's absurd to think there was wasn't been playing in the nfl for the last nine seasons But he's been assault as they come. He's true winner. he goes to the playoffs. he's clutch and i see. The situation is very similar to the tom. Brady situation new england. You had tom brady and bill play for all those years. Winning all those super bowls and talk. Although tom brady wasn't playing up to his level he wasn't playing bad and they had that loss to the titans of the playoffs. And i think he just had those two egos bill. Belichick and tom brady kind of going at each other. And they've they've finally kind of just tired of that relationship and they wanted to move on. They wanted to start. Something new. And when quarterbacks are with the head coach for so long things start to take a turn for the worst so. I'm not sure if that's exactly what's happening with p carroll and russell wilson but there are a lot of similarities there so it was reported in week. Eleven of the season. That wilson stormed out of an offensive meeting when he was trying to offer insight as to what he wanted done as on a bit done for protection standpoint and so that was the first sign the second sign is just overall. He's been getting hit way. Too much. says he's sacked. He's been three hundred ninety four times since entering the league which is on pace to be the most sat quarterback of all time which is pretty insane when you consider how well he's played and he's just been under duress running for his life literally for the last his whole career and so seattle hasn't found a way to kind of sure up that protection for him. I think that's starting to get frustrating as well. So but more specifically in two thousand twenty. He had a week nine loss to the bills. This was a defining moment for this offense offense because after that moment. Russell wilson had started to throw a lot of turnovers making a lot of risky plays they lose to the bills. The seahawks kind of started to scale the offense back like i said to limit turnovers and did not perform well for the rest of the season so before that game. They were top. Three league based on expected points added per play. They were the number three the top three leak and then after that game from from weeknight on they felt a number eighteen the remainder of the season. So that's a huge huge drop off so they really sputtered down the stretch. They were able to win games and make the playoffs through to their defense. Kind of picking picking up. Their play was weird. Their offense was so good in the beginning the defense awful and he kind of flipped that latter half of the year but he's also getting hit It doesn't seem to meet on their offensive loss of beat philosophy and he. He's definitely voiced that he wants more of a say. In the franchise direction as the franchise quarterback so all these things culminating into one is. Where would he end up.

Experts talk about the impact of Trump’s Georgia call on the Senate runoffs
"Thanks for joining us. The president is peddling baseless claims of election fraud. This time over a leaked phone call to a republican election official fueling a new political firestorm as georgia prepares for a pivotal runoff election. That may reshape. The nation's balance of power. Here's abc's steve olson. Saami it's the last push in the final hours before the us senate runoff election in georgia in the candidates in their parties. Biggest names are working overtime to convince enough voters to punch their ticket to washington our countries depending on you powers learn your head more than three million people. George already cast ballots in early voting. That took place in december. A million more than the total turnout for the last run off in two thousand eight. The choice is between republican incumbent. Senator kelly lovelier david purdue and democratic hopefuls. Jon saw and raphael warnock. The war for the majority of the senate comes down to georgia dish here and we need you all of us to stay in that breach. It looks like y'all ready for election five calls or texts today about voting. We'll keep the liberals away. It is time to vote like we have never voted before georgia. Each of them has been trying desperately to get their voters to show up at the polls second time never before has a runoff election in this state met so much it will determine who is in charge of the. Us senate sets the agenda. Who sets the policy with control of the senate on the line. People far away from georgia are all wound up in the states businesses from the white house. Twitter fight like hell. I'll tell you right to hollywood. Work isn't done. Everybody matters who wins. Get out and vote the outrage over a stunning phone. Call between the president and georgia's secretary of state. That's all the talk the night before the election. I just wanna find eleven thousand. Seven hundred eighty. You hear the president repeatedly asking brad rapids burger to give him more votes than biden's eleven thousand seven hundred and seventy nine vote lead in georgia and the hour. Long call lip brad. I gotta get. I have to find twelve thousand votes. And i have them times a lot to. What are we gonna do here. But i only need eleven thousand votes us. I need eleven thousand bucks. Give me a break. And and i'm not looking to blame anybody. I'm not just saying that you know under new cows and under new views of of the election results we won the election but rams burger who seek threats to his life over. All of this said no way. And there's nothing wrong with saying that you know that you've recalculated for mr president determines that you have is the data you have is wrong. You should want to have an accurate election. And you're a republican. We believe what we have an accident election. The georgia secretary of state continue to reject the president's wild claims of election fraud on good morning america. Did you consider it a lawful requests and the president asks you to find the votes lawyer. All i know is that we're going to follow the law. Follow the process truth matters. And we've been fighting these rumors for last two months. There are many who believe that it is no accident. That president trump is focused. Many of his claims a fraud on fulton county the largest in the state. It isn't just a blue county. It's also a largely black county and the president is being accused of trying to overturn the minority vote. Probably county is totally corrupt. They cheated like nobody's ever cheated before later. In the call. President trump even suggests that by refusing to hand the president. The november election robbins burger was hurting the chances of republicans running in the runoff. And because what you've done to the president a lot of people are going out to vote you would be respected if really respected if this could be straightened out before the election you have a big election coming up on tuesday. What's happening in georgia is a perfect storm. It is a telenovela in the making. It's gotta be confusing for republican georgia voters to hear that the elections in georgia and trustworthy at our fraudulent and have been manipulated and then wondered. Ask themselves well. Then why should i bother to tonight. President trump is still holding onto his false claims of fraud and still talking poorly about state. Officials were literally speaking truth to power. There's no way we lost your. This will be here a year and a half. And i'm going to be campaigning against your governor. And you're crazy secretary of state. We are a party of law. and order. georgia's lieutenant governor jeff dunkin who's both a republican and a trump supporter says. He wishes someone at the white house could have kept the president from making that phone. Call right before the election. What do you think about the possibility of folks looking into whether or not. The president broke a law with that phone call. I'm not a lawyer. So i'm going to let the lawyers go figure that out but i am qualified to tell you that that was an inappropriate phone. Call the longer that we try to use the excuse of voter fraud and misinformation to be the reason why we lost this presidential election. The longer it's gonna take for us to build our next platform. Duncan is part of a group of republicans. Who run this state. And we'll tell you to your face. That joe biden won the election here in that saying. So it's what's right. This is all about trust. I've got to look in the mirror. But more importantly i've got look at my three boys in the face. I spent all day trying to tell them to do the right thing. Always do the right thing. I can't imagine walking in that house one night and telling them yeah. I know i couldn't do the right thing. Today was on me. The forty five year old says. He's confident his two candidates can win despite the drama from pennsylvania avenue. I can't think of a single scenario where that phone call for. Sixty two plus minutes made any sort of difference in in getting david purdue and kelly leffler reelected but hopefully there's enough republicans at hang on tomorrow to show up and vote them in and represent our values. Historically democrats rarely win runoff elections in georgia. It's hard to get voters on the blue team to vote twice but former gubernatorial candidate stacey. Abrams says this is the year of the donkey. The national attention national investment as well as having a georgia infrastructure we were able to build a coalition in november. Is going to help come close to victory if not take it all the way. Abrams believes that her teams found the key to winning. We certainly were one of the most diverse battleground states but that diversity is only opportunity if we don't do the work to harness it. We were able to bring together. A latino population who's voting presence. Increased by seventy two percent over two thousand sixteen for asian american pacific islanders. It was a ninety one percent increase for african americans. It was a twenty percent increase.
Loeffler, Warnock will face off in heated debate in Georgia runoff
"Balance of power at stake in the U. S. Senate to run off elections scheduled for next month in Georgia are garnering lots of attention. Sitting Georgia Republican U. S. Senator Kelly La Flor and her Democratic challenger Raphael Warnock, will debate tonight as the two are facing off in a January 5th runoff election. La Flor was appointed to the seat left vacant last year by Johnny Isakson. Georgia is in the rare position of having to U. S. Senate seats up for election at the same time, and both are in runoff faces foxes Evan Brown, the other two candidates, Republican David Perdue and Democrat Jon Ossoff's will not debate, Senator Purdue has turned down multiple invitations.
Biden expected to visit Georgia in push to boost Ossoff, Warnock
"Senate control is still up for grabs as you know. Democrats will have to win both runoffs in georgia to take control of the senate. Here's what the president-elect told me about the importance of senate control back in february. I think i'm more ready to be able to defeat. Donald trump and equally importantly george elect a democratic senate. It's not gonna be enough just to beat him. We have to change the senate in order to get things done. Wasn't he right. Then you know one. Former obama official told dan balls to the washington. Post is the difference between having a transformational president versus having to not negotiate everything with a republican senate. Well those two senate seats georgia is important. And we're going to do everything we can to help. Those two cats great candidates in georgia helped them win. We've already move people who were working on the bike. Campaign on the recounts down there over to be supportive in the field work for our two candidates down there and i expect you'll see the president-elect travel down there before election day so it's very very important to win those seats the thing the reality of course georgia's that even if we win them. Both and i think we will win the both. I think both candidates doing a great job. We're going to have a closely divided senate kind of under any scenario and i think one challenge that president-elect taken on is trying to work with members of both parties to build consensus for action on things like economic relief like climate change like dealing with our other crises are racism crisis the challenge of fixing our immigration laws and of course obviously fighting covid so We're gonna have a closely divided. Senate whatever happens in. Georgia obviously ruined a win. Those seats i really want to see. Chuck schumer be the next majority leader in the us. Senate i think he and the president-elect have a great relationship. But i know they have a great relationship but however that comes out we are going to deliver for the american people. And that's the mission. Look i think that voters sent a clear sign in twenty twenty and the sign they sent was the want to see things get done. They want action on cove. The economy climate healthcare bringing down health. Care costs wants the action on all of that. We're going deal with whatever lineup. We're faced with in washington to get that done. It would be better if that light was a democratic senate. But if unfortunately i think. I don't think this will happen. But if we were to lose those seats in georgia we're gonna move forward with whatever senate gets elected. There's going to be some tension between getting unity. Getting things done working with republicans in investigating any wrongdoing that occurred during the trump administration. The vice president's been reported as express a preference that he has is presence he consumed by trump investigations that has raised some concerns about among some democrats including congressman. Bill pascrell. Who had this to say this week. Failure to hold financial and political wrongdoing accountable in the past has invited greater malfeasance by bad actors. A repeat of those failures and twenty twenty one further emboldens criminality by our national leaders and continues america down the path of lawlessness and authoritarianism. There must be accountability. How do you balance moving forward with getting accountability. Well let's be clear george. The president-elect spoke about this many times the campaign and what he made it clear that joe biden is not going to tell the justice department who to investigate or who not to investigate. That's what we saw the past four years. The president tampering with the justice department. Egging on investigation so and so forth. He's gonna pick an excellent attorney. General an independent justice department and that department will make decisions independently free of politics free in either direction as to how to enforce the laws. That's the way it should be. That's the way it's always been. That's the way it needs to be if we're going to have the kind of rule of law that so important in our country we're gonna see attorney general state department of treasury. Pick this week. What what. I can confirm george is that you're going to see the first of the president-elect's cabinet appointments on tuesday of this week Meeting the pace Beating in fact the pace that was set by the obama biden transition Beating the pace set by the trump transition So you're going to see. The first cabinet picks this tuesday. But if you wanna know what cabinet agencies they are a who's going to be in those cabinet agencies you'll have to wait for the president-elect to say that Himself on tuesday. I knew you were gonna tell me who it was. I was hoping you might tell me which ones thank you well. We watching claim we want people to to george.

"two candidates" Discussed on NewsRadio KFBK
"Smiley Nagel covering the Biden campaign with with him in Wilmington, Delaware, Our political director here at ABC News recline. There could not be a wider gap between the two candidate messages today. No, I mean, this was the choice that Americans had on Tuesday on, and it's the choice that that delivered. Ah, still uncertain verdict and I think listening to this and debunking so many pieces of what the president said, and calling out is frankly outrageous. The statement from any candidate, much less the president. Runs a bit of a danger of missing the point that first of all, Donald Trump can still win the presidency. He has a path to it, even if he doesn't some 70 million people voted for him on and not in despite necessarily or that they didn't know that this was a possibility. This kind of behavior is a possibility they have known who he is. He has shown the American people who he is over and over again, and on this particular point, he's made clear that he intended to question the validity of any election that he didn't end out on top has been saying that From the beginning of his presidency. And I think that's an important thing to realize that it's not just a question of Joe Biden offering a different vision of leadership, because, of course he is. It's that it's that Donald Trump's vision of what it means to lead and what's acceptable behavior and speech on the part of a president has been extremely clear for years and has appealed to about half the country according to the way the votes are shaking out, Rick, Let me pull Steve Roberts The ABC news political analyst into the conversation. His supporters have known that this kind of grievance is at the core of his political messaging. No, exactly. I mean, when what you heard tonight was pure, unadulterated Donald Trump, and it's been at the core of his success. His message has been To so many Americans now for four years. It's us against them. It's you against the elite. It's really people against those snobs in Hollywood and Silicon Valley and Wall Street in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and Palo Alto, California It's the really Americans against the phone, ese. It's this is the way he has conducted his entire presidency, and his entire political strategy has been to divide, not unite. And his entire strategy was to maximize the sense of grievance, the sense of being discarded the sense of being looked down upon. By the power establishments, the swamp. And to maximize their their grievance and to maximize their motivation and one of the reasons why the election was so close. And why the pollsters got it so wrong was that Trump has had a very well financed and very well organized. Effort over years now to create a database that records every one of those people, and that's one of the reasons why he was so competitive because the message was so powerful. And following through with this organization was so efficient, daring ABC news political analyst Steve Roberts indeed..
Georgia Senate race goes into runoff territory
"Where election officials are reporting more vote tallies. The latest numbers show that President Trump's lead among votes counted so far falling to below 14,000 the States voting system Implementation manager Gabriel Sterling said this morning that he is prayerful that all votes will be counted by the end of today. Joining us now is a meal. Moffett reporter at W. A. B E in Atlanta and a meal how many votes are still left to be counted and how much has counting mail in ballots helped close this gap for Biden? Anton you We just got an update from the secretary of State's office. 47,000 ballots absentee ballots left to count. As of this hour in Georgia, so they're getting added It's taken a taken a while, but but it's happening. And what we've seen over the course of the last 24 to 36 hours is that all of these ballots that are still being counted our mail in ballots, and those have favored the Democrat Joe Biden. So we have seen Donald Trump's lead in Georgia dropped dramatically in the last 36 hours. And as you mentioned, it's down to the last update 13,000 to 20 the difference between the two candidates. What are the counties that you're specifically watching? We are watching a Fulton obviously is the largest county in Georgia. It does lean Democrat very heavily in Fulton County. They have completed the counting in Fulton County, but they're still uploading those results to the secretary of state's website, so they haven't necessarily all showed up. There's about 5000 left to show up on Fulton side so that could even cut into the lead the president to leave a little bit more. We're also watching Chatham County Savannah, which is also a Democrat, leading area. There's still 17,000 absentee ballots to be processed and scanned and counted and uploaded there. So that could be another area in which Joe Biden picks up some more votes Remind us briefly why Georgia is so critical to this presidential race right now. It's critical not only because it's closed but because this is a place where Donald Trump won by five points. Four years ago, and now with a million new registered voters In the course of the last couple of years, it is become a toss up state. And you know some of the president's advisors there saying that you know if they don't win Georgia that could be the ball game for everything. And so I think, you know, a win here for Joe Biden would pretty much sealed the deal. And it would just be an incredible turnaround story in politics coming from 2016, too, now. Let's talk a little bit about litigation. A Georgia judge has thrown out this lawsuit from the Trump campaign that tried to invalidate some of these mail in ballots alleging that they came in after seven PM on election night. Are we likely to see another challenge in the state? And if so, on what grounds I would imagine we may see some or legal action based on the extreme close nature of this race. But quite frankly, it's going to have to be on process more than the laws themselves. This is a state with a Republican secretary of state, a Republican controlled state election board and a Republican Legislature. So as far as the law's go, there's not really a lot for Republicans to complain about. They're going to have to go after, as was mentioned in this lawsuit, which was dismissed this morning, the process of actually handling the ballots and what the process is going as far as handling those ballots that were received before and after seven o'clock on election night, which is kind of the deadline in the line of demarcation for What ballots are going to be counted and what are not. Georgia law allows for a recount it fewer than half a percent difference. Is the Biden camp preparing for a legal fight, too? I think that you know, they definitely could be. You know this. This race could come down to just a couple of 1000 votes well within the margin, So I think no matter what happens in this state, no matter who comes out on top when all the votes are counted here in the next day or two, I think we could see a recount definitely is something that That both parties would like to challenge depends on who comes out on top 30 seconds I have with you. What's the latest on the Senate race there between Republican David Perdue and Democrat John Aasif? It is looking more and more like a second Senate race in Georgia will go to a runoff in January. David Purdue has just dropped below the 50% bar part which you're required to attain here in Georgia to win an election. And so Jon Ossoff's challenger, is hoping to get into that runoff in January, which could very well determine the control of the U. S. Senate with two races in Georgia. That's a male Moffett reporter at
World closely watching for results of U.S. election
"With all eyes on extremely tight races and a handful of states, which hold the keys to the White House. Arizona, Georgia, Pennsylvania, North Carolina and Nevada are all too close to call from Washington. Then write reports. It's Joe Biden, who believes the results are firming up in his favor. He currently has 243 electoral college votes compared with President Trump's tally of 214. Speaking in Delaware, Mr Biden said it was clear he was winning enough states to reach the 270 votes required for victory.

What swing state campaigns say about upcoming U.S. election
"President Trump and Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden will both be back in Florida today for campaign events. As NPR's Mara Liasson reports, the state is once again a key contest. Trump will hold to make America Great Again Victory Rally in Tampa. Biden will also be in Tampa and make stops in Broward County, Florida, with its big prize of 29 electoral votes is always very close, and it's a must win state for Trump. He beat Hillary Clinton there by just over one point in 2016. Polls show this year. The race is also very close. With Biden and Trump effectively tide early voting turnout has been massive about 45% of registered voters have already turned in their ballots. Two candidates. Travel schedules tells you that Trump isn't super confident about winning Florida again, and the Biden, who can win without Florida thinks he has a chance in the Sunshine State.
How Trump And Biden Differ On Energy Policy
"We are now just over a week away from election day although we know millions of people have already voted. But in these final few weeks, we've been focusing on some of the policy differences between President Donald Trump and former vice president Joe Biden differences that might not be so easy to discern when they're buried in the middle of campaign rhetoric or debate jobs. Right now, we're going to focus on one revealing moment during last Thursday's presidential debate when the two candidates talked about energy specifically, how should the US get and use power in the future have a transition from their own minister yes? Oh. It is a big statement because I would stop why would you do that because the oil industry pollutes significantly here so let's dig into that a bit more what other two candidates competing visions for us energy policy going forward and what are the implications per workers and the environment to help us sort this out. We've called Dino Grandoni he reports on all this for the Washington Post with us now Dino Grandoni. Thank you so much for talking with us your. Thank you for having me on. So let me just start if we can with that clip that we just played there is a divide and how these to view the future of. US Energy. So when it comes to oil, where does each one stand? Yes. So the two candidates have laid out starkly different visions for what they would like to do with the oil industry and how they would like to transition away from fossil fuels or whether or not. They would want to even do that You saw a Democratic candidate Biden pledge to move away from oil in favor of renewable energy and predicted that that kind of move will generate millions of jobs president trump by contrast says that doing that would be costly and hurt the economy and in particular would hurt the oil producing states where both men are competing for votes. Well. You've recently written that president trump has very recently tried to rebrand himself as an environmentalist which would seem like a difficult sell when his administration has rolled back countless environmental regulations over the past four years and he continues to push for oil coal and gas. So what's his pitch? Yeah, and this is a man who has spent much of his life trying to rebrand himself during various business ventures. So He Over the past year has changed his position and a few different things he has promised to fund restoration of the Great Lakes when in the past White House had proposed cutting money to do that similar story with the everglades in Florida and He is endorsed this idea planting a trillion trees around the world in order to suck carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. President trump is going to have a hard time convincing the public that he is a more environmentally friendly candidate than Joe Biden, release candidate who cares more GONNA do more to solve climate change. His administration has spent the past four years rolling back literally dozens of anti-pollution another environmental rules and that kind of reputations probably baked into the public. At this point president trump has attacked for vice president Joe Biden for what trump a radical climate plant and we do have to say this has been described as by far. The most aggressive climate and energy platform that this country has ever seen from a major party candidate. So could you just just as briefly as you can describe what are some of the key elements? So what Joe Biden wants to do is eliminate US contributions to climate change by the middle of the century and on the way they're doing. So he wants to eliminate greenhouse gas emissions from the power sector in particular power plants by twenty, thirty five, both of those are very aggressive timelines and like you're saying more. Aggressive than anything any other major party candidate has ever put forward. It's in fact more aggressive in some ways than what Bernie Sanders was saying back in two thousand sixteen. So let me ask you this though how does Biden respond to the argument? That's would cost this have tremendous adverse economic impact especially in states that are necessary to for him to win I, mean, how does he respond to that cost the loss of just thousands upon thousands of jobs? Well, he says that his climate plan is also a jobs. Plan that transitioning away from fossil fuels will create millions of jobs in itself to have to install solar panels, built wind turbines. But then also all all the different sort of retrofits that his plan calls for to homes and businesses to make buildings more energy efficient. He really thinks of this as an economic plan in addition to being a plan to stop climate change or headed off at least. Well, we knew though that president trump in contrast president trump has always kind of focused on that economic impact of. This country is kind of reliance on fossil fuels and back in two thousand sixteen many people may remember he promised to reopen coal mines and to bring back coal mining jobs has that happened no that has not happened and we've seen trump talk less and less about coal in the first two state of the Union addresses. He gave he talked a lot about clean call and saving jobs but he dropped those references in the last two state of the Union addresses and we've seen coal fired power plants continue. To Shudder and call nine continue to close down during his presidency not because of any government policy. Really. But experts say it's because of economic pressure Kohl's just gotten to expensive relative to natural gas and renewable 's and what about oil I. The idea that a move away from fossil fuels from reliance on fossil fuels is increasingly popular with the public. I mean, the polls make that clear but apart from that are the economics driving oil to face a similar fate, a colleague of yours reported last month, for example. That British Petroleum VP has come out publicly and said it is shrinking it's oil and gas business and investing in wind and solar. So are sort of economic imperatives or whatever public policy imperatives regardless of what president trump sort of perspective on this are they driving in that direction anyway. So during the pandemic at least in the short term, the oil industry has been hit particularly hard as people driving fly less. There's a lot less demand for oil and that has caused a lot of oil companies to have to. Lay off people and even have to declare bankruptcy in this country that said, there are some experts who do think that oil is going to go the way of coal right now, electric vehicles. There aren't that many being used relative to the entire auto market in the United States, but there's this expectation that adoption of electric vehicles is going to pick up and that's going to really eat into the petroleum business because most of the petroleum in this country is used towards transportation field towards the gas tank in your car. That is Dino Grandoni. He is an energy and environmental policy report with the Washington. Post Dina Grandoni thank you so much for talking to us. Thank you for having me
What was said in the Trump-Biden debate last night?
"Let's talk about what went down last night. Akilah quick first impression here. All right. So I was prepared for this debate to be just as annoying as the first one and generally speaking I don't think it was it was quieter and less interrupt. The mute button function was good for the majority of the first answers to the moderator's questions. By the end although senseless non sequiturs started creeping back in also say that the moderator last night Kristen Welker was way better like so far ahead of Chris Wallace several weeks ago you know she kept the candidates on topic she forged ahead with better more relevant questions whenever trump threatened to devolve into conspiracy theories and generally speaking she seemed comfortable being there. So that was the VIBE. But Gideon, let's talk about what trump did last night how would you describe what he had to say? Yeah I definitely agree that it was more toned-down but on the substance I, think trump still acts enlarge part like he's running into. Kept, trying to cast his opponent as a career politician and one who was corrupt he brought up that hunter suffer example, but it didn't quite and it was a little bit hard to follow, and that strategy allows him to evade questions about his own term as well as his vision for the future he failed for instance, offer coherent message on the biggest crisis of his presidency covert nineteen and he at times tried to make the Democratic ticket seem more to the left than it is trump. Seems to always have Bernie Sanders on the brain and several times. He came back to the same point about Biden being a longtime politician who hasn't gotten anything done. But there was at least one specific moment where the strategy failed and he pretty remarkable way by turn to the camera and said, the debate should be about the families of people watching and not what the two candidates were talking about and trump kind of fell into a trap with a terrible answer. Here's a clip of that. This isn't about there's a reason why he's. been up all this Malarkey. There's a reason for he doesn't WanNa talk about the the the substantive issues it's not about his family and my family it's about your family and your family's hurting badly if you're making less than if you're a middle class family, you're getting hurt badly right now you're sitting at the kitchen table this morning to decide what we can't get new tires their ball because we have. To wait another month or so or are we going to be able to pay the mortgage who's going to tell her? She can't go back to to community college there the decision making in the middle class families like I grew up in. Scranton claim they're in trouble we should be talking about your families but that's a last thing he wants to talk about I wanted to say I wanted to tell. Me What is it? Ten seconds Mr President go political stupid. Let's get off this China thing and then he looks the family around the table everything just a typical politician I see that's. Difficult politician. That's why I got elected that. Let's get off the subject of China let's talk around sitting around the table. Right come on Joe you. Okay. So if we're following the logic here, trump is coming off as saying I'm not a typical politician I don't care about your family. Almost. Literally, what he's getting at that moment along with one word trump backed away from raising the federal minimum wage were really out of sync with what's going on in the country among working families. So a Gila, what did you make of trump last night? So I mean personally, I'm not giving US seventy four year old man props for not screaming like an infant during a debate like he's been here long enough he I don't know how to act by now. But in terms of the content of his answers, there wasn't really much worth talking about like. You said trump didn't really WANNA talk about his record at all at one point. He did say that he takes responsibility for covert but then he immediately pivoted to the same old static about how everything is China's fault and other points he blamed. Democratic. Governors and criticized overall continued to downplay the virus saying that schools and businesses should fully reopen but he revealed no plan to deal with the spikes and infections. In fact, he claim that there is a vaccine that's ready and we'll be deployed in a few weeks wad squad we know

Trump and Biden spar from afar in dueling town halls
"Let's talk about what happened last night president trump and former vice president biden making their case to the American people are on Dueling town halls. I was sitting there with my remote going back and forth back and forth both events focusing on the trump administration's handling of the global. Pandemic. Do, you support herd immunity as a strategy essentially just lucky. The Cure. CanNot be worse than the problem itself we did the right thing we were expected to lose two, million, two, hundred, thousand people, and maybe more than that. We're at two hundred, ten, thousand people. One person is too much should never happened because of China it happened because of China and you have to get that and understand that there's a presidential responsibility to lead and he didn't do that. He didn't talk about what needed to be done because he kept worrying in my view about the stock market. He worried if he talked about how bad this could be unless we took these precautions precautionary actions then in fact. The market down and his barometer success economies the market. Joining us up right now is political strategist and pollster Frank Luntz who watched the duly town halls with a focus group of sixteen undecided voters. Frank. What was the upshot? The upshot I've been trying to figure this out for the last couple of months? Why are these people still undecided after all this time after seeing all these different events and watching all the ads and I can answer for you right now They are nervous about trump's persona and are nervous about Joe Biden's policies, and that's what's holding them back. It's not that they can't see difference between the two candidates they see a tremendous difference. But the difference is an aspects of things, they don't like about each candidate and they're trying to decide which is more important to them. The fact that they really don't like Donald Trump as a person. Or the fact that they are really scared about what you're biding might do if he became president. Based on that assessment though as you talk to them and hear their their thoughts. Do you walk away from Matt Feeling like they're moving in one direction or another based on these events or anything else? Frankly know that they cannot decide and that they will not decide and that they're going to wait until Election Day, our history tells us that in the end if they haven't decided to support the incumbent that they end up to one supporting the Challenger. For Donald Trump the only way he can win at this point and frankly he should have done this debate it was to mistake van cancel it the only way now with this state dividing the way that they are with. So few people undecided is that he would have to win every single undecided voter and then win over four five percent who were leading to Joe Biden right now, that is a very tall order when you only have one more debate to come. To show you a couple of clips get your feedback on them. Last night president trump spoke about the economy during his townhall where Savannah Guthrie interviewed him take a look at this. We are going to have a phenomenal third quarter which will be announced on November. I just prior to the big November third day we're thinking this year red wave, but we're going to have a tremendous announcement I believe I mean we're gonNA find out but GDP is going through the roof. If we don't have somebody that raises taxes and quadruples taxes, which they want do and kills everything our economy's going to be phenomenal next year. was that an effective argument for your independence? No no, it was not. It's going to be phenomenal. It's going to be tremendous I. Guess you can applaud him for coming up with words that have three and four syllables but that's not what these undecideds are looking for. They do support they remember the economy before covert and give trump a lot of credit for that but they want to know the details how can he do it again? This current circumstance and they don't want these generalities they want to know exactly what he's going to do. They're never going to endorse him in his persona. They'll like how he attacks don't like the dish business that comes from him but did you appreciate his job and they appreciate his success they wanna see that he's going to be able to do that one more time. So franken next week, these two candidates are going to have their final debate together. Terms of approach if you were advising both candidates, you would be telling them what I be telling Joe Biden to repeat again and again. there. He goes again, you just the same line that Ronald Reagan used to remind people of what they're tired of and to remind people that there is simply frustrated and anxious and the quite frankly exhausted from this campaign. And for Donald, trump and I'm sure that he will not do this I would say look I would I would apologize to Joe Biden for that first debate I'm being very serious now I would apologize to him for that first debate and acknowledge that not everything has gone as planned but remind people that we did it before we did it again he's got the proof he's got the evidence did he knows what to do that it worked once and that it can work again I want to say one more clip. But before we do that, what do you make of all of the votes that are coming in by mail? As you're looking at the different tallies around the country, are you convinced that those are in? The prevailing wisdom is that people voting early voting for Biden do you believe that's the case I do and I'm doing a significant amount of polling on it right now, and by the way Andrew I hope that you can show the focus group because the one thing that's been very frustrating to me as upholster is that we're hearing from people like me and we're not hearing from the voters themselves and I think that that is constructive thing that could possible viewers frank let let's do. Let's do that right now because you you ask your Focus Group of sixteen hundred voters about the economy and we have a clip of that and I want to show it. With. Let's roll it. Trump had an opportunity to speak to undecided voters. He specifically mentioned the economy and what he says over and over again is it's GonNa be Great. It's going to be better than ever it's going to be. We're going to get right back to where we are and Thurs euro substance tobacco

of difference between Bernie the Bolshevik and quid pro quo Joe well except maybe one has more energy than the other more alert that might be the biggest difference right now that we played last week we played you the tape of twenty sixty and that would Biden basically said not prelude it Bernie would just get rid of his his socialist label it's it's all what we all agree on and and he's passionate believes at all this and we do too it was Democrats it bodes the what I say nobody else picked up on the super Tuesday and will learn a lot more tomorrow yeah what seven states tomorrow super Tuesday it was the lead up to this was Bernie defending the murdering dictatorships and we're not talking about a few people we're talking about millions of people slaughtered in Russia the worst economic decline and and could collapse ever a baby but the history of mankind the great can't make guns and butter you had to people online for basic fundamental necessities like toilet paper and bread waiting hours regularly to get those items but he praises that we're even honeymooned in the former Soviet Union then it's praising the Castro brothers but they got a good health care system in a good educational system yeah okay well they murdered him plundered and stole everybody's landing confiscated pretty much everything and then Danielle nor Ortega and then Venice well even but if you look at the principles that was the Democrats say well we're gonna have a hard time defending this guy defending murdering dictatorships they both support meeting Biden and Bernie deportations of illegal immigrants they they don't want any deportations they want open borders they want a path to citizenship for everybody that did not respect our laws our sovereignty is our borders they don't care they agree on that beau Biden and Bolshevik Bernie you know they both support raising taxes on middle class American families and workers they both want to implement what will destroy the American economy and frankly it'll have an impact around the world we see that with Saudi Arabia and Russia from earlier to day and that is yep they'd like to destroy America's fossil fuel jobs that's the oil and gas industry the lifeblood of our economy both of them you know that they both want us all to pay for the health care for illegal immigrants in this country okay that gets expensive where's all that money coming from all the talk about viruses well would we have fewer what what what are risk be lower for communicable diseases of any kind if in fact we close the borders or just simply check people out not to be mean just to protect the American people I mean it was smart the president put a travel ban a fact I think we ought to check people's backgrounds I do they have any radical associations in their life that they have the means to take care of themselves are they in good health those are all legitimate questions not to be mean it's just we have such a long list of people that would love to come into this country up you got Bolshevik Bernie and quid pro quo Joe that they both support taxpayer funding of abortion even late term abortion they want to eliminate the fossil fuel jobs I support taxpayer funded free college who's gonna pay for that we are you know they both support the destruction of the private healthcare insurance you know Joe wants to double down on obamacare the disaster that's a disaster I'm good Sanders and Joe both support abolishing the death penalty and I am I just watchin I listen and I don't really see a dime for the difference between these two these two candidates Bolshevik Bernie's continuing you know to pull his punches on the campaign trail as it relates to quid pro quo Joe and zero experience hunter but his supporters by the way they're not showing that much reluctance some of them now fueling rumors that owning a politics USA that Joe Biden has dementia this is their reported says a former employee of Bernie Sanders was using the Biden campaigns virtual phone banking told to call voters and spread the claim that Biden has dementia we'll put our politics USA goes on to say the Biden campaign posted about the former employee a former Bernie employees using our virtual phone bank told to call voters and tell them Joe Biden has dementia and is live streaming it will cut him off in a little bit but I figured it's worth everyone seeing this stuff in action hello button campaign is blaming the scorched earth tactic of course that's Donald trump's fault no Bernie's trying to get the nomination first anyway in politics USA concludes its very trump like Bernie Sanders supporters to falsely claim the Joe Biden has this etcetera said that this is all coming from and they're all this is the internal civil conflict in the Democratic Party now if you listen to Joe Biden is a well we have the African American vote all sold up not so fast Jesse Jackson well he endorsed Bernie Sanders with the pledge that he will be campaigning with Sanders in key primary states okay maybe Joe doesn't have it sewn up he got a top Sanders adviser having apologised for sexist comments made about Michelle Obama this was a news week anyways senior advisor Sanders campaign had to apologize for tweets he said more than a decade ago and what she called the former First Lady ugly good grief several rights activists Philip Agnew now steers joining the twenty twenty presidential hopeful's campaign on March the seventh I am not my tweets from two thousand and nine okay all right one tweet random thought while standing at a gas station Michelle Obama is an odd looking woman I call or ugly but I don't want the backlash you want that kind of person working on your campaign Bernie maybe you should fire them just a thought Michael Goodwin is was always our buddy mark Simone early today and you know Hillary bundler is he's reporting a telling democratic donors don't commit the Biden I have been hearing from democratic bundle those who say that they're telling donors don't commit don't raise money for Biden yet and on Sunday good wind is contending it is New York Post column that Hillary is waiting in the wings preparing to rescue the Democratic Party of Biden's stumbles badly enough on the campaign trail okay good luck with that I hear a lot of people say these things this site is not okay that's not my fault yeah there you go Hannity picking up my little pumpkin again not fair Candace far how are you you creep get away from me be nice what's up campus in Florida are you Candice okay great I'm calling because I am African American Republican Jewish Republican and eight and I have been campaigning for trump since two thousand and sixteen Anibal Republican for a very long time what I want to get is that to the black boulders that are really all of a sudden speed not now for back pain trump has done a tremendous job with blacks and what he did the first act program in about ninety five percent of African Americans so far we believe that he has laid out a series of bill I call it a day for him linking for lady contract that he signed I can this might get when you're breaking up on us there hang on one second we want to give your call in here and and get you a good answer to that Moses in New Jersey Bose's how are you you're on the Sean Hannity show what's going on doing a great job with that thought you again my friend it's good to talk to you what's happening all right you know it's on the one thing that I'm thinking about right now is going to be dull the big picture you know basically the second term of trump because I'm very confident that he's going to win but my fear is that these attacks in the coming from the left you know the only reason why they happen John is because Republicans never respond in kind you know why is and the people that test that lied about having a wider than not gotten the Rajasthan treatment after the admitted to lying you know under penalty of perjury you know why haven't they got responded to in kind by our DOJ or not you know people like Andy McCabe you know they're going after president trump because I don't have a good answer for you well it because now we do that we know that McCabe and call me both referred of a criminal investigation they were found to have lacked candor wide in McCabe's case for example three times under oath and they made a decision for whatever reason not to prosecute I don't know if it's going to be an all encompassing thing that is sort of funneled into what is the dorm and bar report or action I do know the inspector general you know they had a limited purview but we got a lot of information everything we had told you about premeditated fraud on the FISA court denying America's civil rights and civil liberties and constitutional rights happen we know that it was done for the purpose to spy on a presidential candidate transition team and later president we know that Hillary's dirty dossier was the bulk of that information in the FISA application that says verified it's unverifiable it's even been debunked and they were warned ahead of time so all I know is you wouldn't get away with that I wouldn't get away with it and if we ever had subpoenaed emails that we destroyed we wouldn't get away with that either really awful I back to Florida by the way Florida Candice and two hundred thirty nine days you're going to be very important to this country what's going on see we have a better life I will hi I work the black voters to know what trump has done because when I tell them to mention about the third step back bill our ninety one per cent of hard battle Senate inmate every black family but ninety one percent sign up that deal they know that the president would have done they will still be incarcerated for life in federal sent in a federal prison every black person should be proud of what he's done if I can play contract play contract there should be not no black person walk behind Biden or nothing because trump president trump deal Abraham Lincoln that way contract well let me put it this way there is there there has banned disparage NC it's proven again and again the numbers do not lie I would say the the biggest two leaps towards a fairer justice system one is Barry Scheck the innocence project that thank god D. N. A. technology they've been able to free many people convicted of crimes they never committed I was a proponent of the death penalty most of my career until I started seeing these cases one after another we're people convicted and turns out they didn't do it every show DNA evidence so for me unless you're on videotape by by a very stringent rules that I would follow that but yeah criminal justice reform the president's support of opportunity zones the president's support of historically black colleges criminal justice reform with you know record after record low unemployment for African Americans and Hispanic Americans and African American youth unemployment women in the workplace it's good it is all good for our country our American family and I would argue Candace the reason that's happening is a predictable not as conservatism works limited government less bureaucracy burdensome bureaucracy lower taxes it works every time we tried it works yes they they really it really does he has really made a tremendous difference within the last four years and he he'll continue for the next four years to make a difference in the black community at its wish that all black people get out info and see what he is doing and see what the GOP Republicans see what you're doing Sean is a lot of everybody oxy which are all doing for the black community it's not for everybody to be successful it's just good it's just common sense you know what does the president say it as he gives his clothes his signature clothes at his rallies where one glorious nation under god we are one American family we want to keep America safe and strong and prosperous and great that's it pretty simple goal it really is and we all looked at it that way we'd all be better off and healthy too eight hundred nine.

"The two candidates for overreaction second day the highest overreaction to opening day results. One. If the Yankees lose to the Orioles and struggles did evening last year. The papers New York will go absolutely crazy because the Orioles are God awful and the second. I think candidate the Red Sox if their bullpen has an issue and they lose the game to Seattle. That's one you're going to see a lot of the writers going on. What do you think? Yeah. I think definitely I think those are storylines that we've already seen, but you know, the those Yankees fans and whoever else should remember that they did not start too. Well last year and look how great of a season they had. But I agree. I think that those are the markets and everything for those kinds of overreactions. But you know, I'm interested to see what the reaction to Bryce Harper is if you were to go over four, I mean, we know what happened last year with Abe Kappler that teams in a different spot now. But this is a home game. He's facing Tehran who he? Ashes against so if he were to go for four which happens, by the way, plenty and could happen on July third, and it would be less of a big deal. We'll see what happens there. And and if he goes over four with three punch outs, and they lose he gets booed. He here's his first booze in Philly. I think just tradition. Yes. Yeah. Opening day. It's like Christmas, right? There's lots of lots of things involved there. Open. All right. Sarah, thanks for doing this. And I'll talk to you next week. Thanks for having me investor. So Mendoza lie with Sunday night. Baseball's Jessica and does. Just as you, and I are talking run the in the visiting dugout at T mobile field. We have to get that right to mobile. Of course. Right. Exactly. But you got earlier today day before opening day you spend time on a tower with Jackie Bradley, jR. Oh my gosh. So we took off at like eight AM when I what were you doing on a private jet? We were doing volcano tour. And so it was just Jackie Bradley, jR, myself and the Red Sox production team, and we got to go see mount rainier and mount Saint Helens and it was like a two hour tour flying. It was a beautiful morning to BUSTER like to be able to see the clarity of mount rainier. I mean going to school in the Pac twelve and playing it you dub and always having that as a backdrop I've always wanted to go up close. But to be honest like mount Saint Helen's, I think was the one where flying over it. And it was cool sitting there next to Jackie, and he was like a ten year old dislike looking on my gosh. This wants to blown-up so crazy look like this beyond giant massive hole in the top of it. And of course, like history both of us like learning as much as possible about both of the mountains and. Kind of picturing what it would have been like. But anyway, it's just cool to see. I love it. And I was even talking to the production team to humanize these guys and seeing them like I mentioned Jackie being almost like a ten year old and wanting to go to Seattle and see what there is to see here. Yes. Since opening day. And yes, the Red Sox won the championship in his brain. He's like what he wanted to go. See orca whales. I that got shot down because it's like a six hour day. But to be able to go on this volcano tour, and I know he's going to be doing a couple of other things while he's here, museums and aviation place..

Even if he wins reelection. They know that the work that he's doing right now is not accomplishing anything. For instance. I think in that White House meeting with Pelosi Schumer, this is what disturbed Trump voters there. There were no other GOP there to even support or even back up any of Trump's are. So yes, I think that President Trump made an enormous mistake to hold that meeting without support. In other words, why didn't he invite of course, Kevin McCarthy and Mitch McConnell or Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell would have come to the meeting, and I don't understand why they weren't invited. Go ahead, but Michael even Michael tense at why do like, I think he's showed I at least. Trump voters and conservatives I don't have too much confidence in because he didn't even get into the whole thing. Now, you can say he stayed out of it. But I'm saying to myself, why isn't someone supporting Trump I in the GOP? And I think that's what the starving is disturbing conservatives and Trump supporters that they see this deed swamp. Whether you believe it or not as existing on both sides, and whether you believe it or not seeming to conspire against this individual, and okay, and again, and you think Mike Pence who was sitting there like elf on the shelf during the meeting with Pelosi and Schumer that that showed that he was part of the deep swamp. I don't think that's fair to vice president Pence who's been a very loyal supporter of President Trump and his entire agenda. We will get back to that.
