"Brought to you by the ragu cook like a mother cookoff. A reality show that finally admits it's not real. Listen and subscribe everywhere you get podcasts. Michaela shifrin out of second race in a row after missing a gate in the slalom by Howard fendrich. Two time Olympic champion Michaela shifrin's second race at the Beijing games ended even more quickly than her first, a 26 year old American skidded out of control about 5 seconds into the opening run of the slalom Wednesday, and is out of the event. That was even less time than her trip down the course lasted in the first run of the giant slalom on Monday. This time, shifrin went over to the side of the hill, sat on the snow and bowed her head. Shifrin came to China as one of the biggest stars of her or any sport at the Winter Olympics, a dominant at times Alpine skier, who has been in the spotlight since she was a teenager. She has said she plans to enter all 5 individual races at the Yang ching Alpine skiing center, and one gold would make her the second female ski racer to win at least one at three consecutive games. So far though, shifrin is over two, unable even to complete a substantial portion of the first leg of either of her first two events, both the slalom and giant slalom are specialties of hers to run technical races that combine two times. It is not stunning that she hasn't won a medal, let alone a gold as shifrin herself so often reminds everyone, anything can happen on any given day. What is truly surprising is that she has been so off for games so immediately in each of her two trips along the course, known as the ice river. Shifrin's next race could be the super G on Friday. She never has competed in that event at an Olympics, but did win it at the 2019 world championships..

Because as to your point breath the car's lap so quickly. You know, they lapped the slower cars very, very quickly. And their pit roads are treacherous to the shorter tracks you you tend to have the potential for more calamity on on pit road.

They can without taking ridiculous risks and that that's almost an oxymoron. You know, go really hard. But be careful. Yeah, you know, that's a hard thing to get racers to do. When we come back.

You know, in Atlanta, and we've had it all over the place, you know, and now having it back at Labor Day where I think the Southern 500 belongs to think everybody agrees with that, But now having it is the first race at the playoffs and is it realistic?

"As congress needs to come in. So there's this law that governs how disaster aid is distributed and it is all about preventing fraud that's why all those stringent requirements exist. We talked about earlier to you. Live in a place or that you own your house for example but will is and others that is slowing down. It is making it really hard for people to get the help they need and that the law needs to change if fema is going to be more equitable. I have to say though so far. No one in congress has seriously proposed that.

"This message comes from npr sponsor. Ford introducing the mustang mach e. Here's the global brand director of electric vehicles jayson castro iota on the challenge of creating an all electric suv. That drives like a mustang. The normal challenge of making suv go. Fast is higher center of gravity. The beauty of the battery electric vehicle platform is that all of the weight was down low on the floor. Because that's where the batteries housed. And that's where the electric motors are to learn about the new all electric pony in the mustang stable goto four dot com becky. Let's start with some basics about fema. This is the agency that helps people get back on their feet after disasters. Right what do we know about who exactly gets fema help right. So fema is providing this really crucial housing assistance. So money to repair your house or pay rent basically and this is what our investigation found. So if you're poor you're less likely to receive some types of housing assistance and when you do get money you oftener steve less and femurs own internal analysis confirmed this. But here's the catch. Academic research shows that there are similar disparities between white disaster survivors and people of color. But fema says it has not conducted similar analyses about race. So there's this research evidence showing all of this What did you find about how that's really bearing out for families and entire communities. Yeah so that's why. I went to port arthur. You know for years. I've been running across individual families in black and latin next neighborhoods had trouble getting help from fema after hurricanes specifically but the research i was reading suggested that entire neighborhoods were being affected and port. Arthur is a really good place to go if you want to see the effects of hurricanes on whole neighborhoods because it's surrounded by water. It is right on the gulf of mexico. It's been hit by four hurricanes since two thousand five and fema has provided assistance after every one of those storms but it sounds like the assistance hasn't really helped both authors black neighborhoods. Becky what did you learn about. Why black residents haven't gotten adequate help right. So one reason seems to be kind of paperwork issue and i saw a really good example of this in a neighborhood called l. vista importer. So this is one of the few places that black residents could live. When the city was officially segregated it is extremely low lying and it got hit really hard by hurricane harvey back in two thousand seventeen. Everything here got flooded everything. I'm going to really show you. Something's gonna blow your mind so john. Beard took me down to visit a homeowner. Who lives there. Her name is shirley pain on this pain. Home and shirley's house is brick. It's one of the only ones left on her block. She raised her kids in this house. She raised her grandchildren in this house. And when we arrived her great granddaughters were playing outside but during harvey she had four feet of water in this house and she says the only reason she was able to rebuild is because she didn't have to rely on fema she had insurance but she says a lot of her neighbors. They weren't so lucky. They needed money from but they didn't have the paperwork that showed. They owned their homes a lot of people. The houses wasn't in their name. Me is this because the houses were passed down through families. Yeah a lot of them. Were exactly like maybe the house was in a grandparents name or siblings name or maybe it was owned collectively you know is it had been passed down. Each family got a little piece of the ownership over the years. And that's really common in many historically segregated communities in the us pene says it took months or even years to iron out the paperwork for houses like that an elderly neighbors and people with young kids. They just couldn't wait that long for stable housing. They couldn't afford to pay the cost of a hotel or an apartment and that left them no choice but to leave a lot of these houses. You see down street here that one. That's bull still boarded up. This result of harvey is just is just saying. Let's just say today about a quarter of the houses around. There are empty. I asked shirley's granddaughter if she would want to inherit her grandmother's house raise her daughter's there and she said no that she feels like black port. Arthur is dying and is there evidence that this type of thing is happening in other places after disasters. Yes so proving homeownership. This problem it has showed up in black neighborhoods. After hurricane katrina. It has showed up for residents of puerto rico after hurricane maria and there's a growing body of research that actually uses census data and financial data to try to quantify what those disparities due to families so for example there is the study on after hurricane harvey and focused on houston and it found that bankruptcy rates spiked by almost forty percent after the hurricane in neighborhoods were racial minorities because people in those neighborhoods were less likely to receive some types of fema assistance and what is famous response to this. Well fema acknowledges that has a problem I interviewed keith. Torri he's females assistant administrator for recovery and he said the first step is for the agency to start gathering data about race. We're not currently collecting demographic data for the survivors that we serve. We do plan to add to our collection in the near future. And does he. Did he give details on what the future meant in terms of a timeframe no he didn't and fema didn't respond to any follow up questions about how we're or whether that information would be available to the public or any other concrete steps it's taking to make programs more fair okay. So they are not telling you anything about this. But i mean you've talked to a lot of experts right becky What are some potential solutions to address. These racial disparities right. so yeah. I really focused on interviewing disaster experts and sociologists especially about this and one idea that came up. A lot is to limit who's eligible for fema assistance. You know make it more. Like snap benefits or medicaid so only people below a certain income or wealth threshold would be eligible. Another idea is to stop relying on disaster survivors to apply for help. You basically use the information. The government already has to get money to those the most including people in marginalized communities. So you mean the fact that the government already knows who uses public healthcare gets money to pay for food or a military veteran or has kids in the school system. So just use that information exactly. yeah And i talked to cianci willis about this the former emergency manager for tampa florida and she's also the co founder of the institute for diversity and inclusion in emergency management and. This is how she put it. We need to understand. I who has the greatest need and who has the least access and we're going to start her there where you start from there. If everyone i mean that sounds like an obvious logical approach but we all know that changing the way government agency does its work. It's very slow onto taking fema didn't even give you a timeframe for all of this. Did you hear about anything that might push the agency to be more equitable. Yep so first of all. I have to say if you ask the agency. It's all about studying the problem in really understanding who is not getting the help they need like. If fema can fully understand the problem then fema feels. That can fix the problem short but again. That's going to take a long time. Yeah yeah and if you talk to people like john lewis. She says actually what needs to happen.

If you're really lucky as a reporter someone is willing to give you a personal tour of their hometown. It's really the best way to see a place. That's what happened when producer ryan coughman and i visited port arthur texas earlier this year. Our tour guide was former city council. Member john beard.

But this is nothing like what it used to be telling nothing at all the neighborhoods. We drove through were pockmarked with empty lots. A lot of houses had blue tarps on their roofs or were missing windows. In some areas whole blocks were empty and beard says one reason that black neighborhoods in his city are struggling. Is that people whose homes were damaged or destroyed in storms haven't gotten adequate help from the federal emergency management agency. Fema and this is the second piece. You've brought us about fema becky last week. We talked about here. Investigation which found that low-income disaster survivors are less likely to get some types of housing assistance from female. Yeah and today. I wanna talk about the growing body of evidence that fema doesn't do a good job serving people of color who survived disasters and dig.

I know that it's the second race into the triple crown. And i know that medina the horse that won the kentucky derby tested positive in a drug test after that win but before you walk us through exactly what happened there. How would you describe the drama in the sport that you cover right now. This is pretty unprecedented. We haven't had a derby positive in horse racing since nineteen sixty sixty when you start talking about drugs in horse racing it. It aims it up to the next level you know we've had drug positives and being debated in the past the the most important ones that have happened in acid involved. in the same trainer bob baffert. This is a continuation of a pattern. And i think. That's what's causing a lot of the uproar that this wasn't a trainer who got caught up in some sort of mix up with therapeutic medication. It's trainer who is at the top of the game hall of fame member. A person who has one more derbies eighty percent history as long as on stands and he has a pattern of being sloppy in his barn operations. And it's hard to believe that you could be sloppy going into the most important race on the calendar.

Meghan Markle discusses her mental health during tabloid attacks

"Last night. Oprah's highly anticipated interview with meghan. Markle and prince harry about their decision to leave the royal family last year aired on cbs. When i was pregnant all around this same time so we have in tandem. The conversation of he won't be given security not going to be given a title and also concerns in conversations about how dark his skin might be when he's born morkel faced harsh criticism even before the interview ran because of accusations of bullying. And the timing of the interviews release and nine year old patriarch. Prince philip is currently still in hospital following a heart procedure. But meghan and harry spend most of the discussion giving their side of the tabloid stories have circulated and they revealed some shocking details. They allege that there were royal conversations. About how dark. Their child's skin would be rifts with the family and even mental health issues meghan struggled with. You're with us to discuss. All of this is kristin mind. Zor a royal watcher podcast and author of how to be fine kristen. Welcome hi kristen. So i just i want to get your overall reaction to the interview yesterday and if there was anything that surprised you more than anything else. Oh my gosh. There's so much to say about this interview. I was mostly surprised by was hell forthcoming meghan. And harry were about all sorts of things that normally they would have to be buttoned up about for example. I didn't expect either of them to name names at any point. Megan very early on in the interview actually set the record straight about something with her sister-in-law key and i wasn't expecting that so yeah i absolutely was surprised at many moments and even cried watching some of this. Wow would push you. What made you cry or upset you well. I think that we all knew that. Megan was going through a very tough time there. She was being attacked with racist media. Stories misogynistic media stories. We know that she wasn't being protected. We know the firm was not setting the record straight. When i say the firm. I mean the business side of the royal family was not setting the record straight and i think that was obvious from the outside but we had no idea of how unprotected she felt how lonely she felt how much they were keeping her behind palace walls all the time and we had no idea that she was suicidal and she talks very frankly about that how she thought things would be better if she just weren't alive anymore. And fortunately harry provided solace for her. She leaned on. Princess diana's old friends but when she went to the firm they refuse to help her. They said it would not be a good look refused to help her like getting her mental health treatment or anything of the lake right yes exactly specifically as it relates to two races treatment. Which is something that came up again and again in this interview for megan as a woman of mixed race background. What revelations did she and harry reveal about how the palace treated her Because of her race there were some big bombshells. An air mostly. Harry said that he had some learning to do about race. Because it's one thing to read about race or to have friends of color but to be married to megan into the father now of color. He had a lot of learning to do and he said his family is not really up on all of that learning and one example they gave us that the whole family or the firm. I should say was very concerned. About what color will cheese skin be. When he's born and there were major concerns. What will it look like. What will people think what if he's too dark and they didn't say that directly to megan but harry confirmed they made that clear to him and they would not name names of who specifically was voicing those concerns but those concerns are very real. You said earlier that Megan set the record straight about her and what she's had to deal with and what the major story was about her sister-in-law a can you explain a little bit about that like what that story was about and how she set the record straight. Yes yes while. There have been a number of stories in the uk tabloid press trying to put these two women against each other because tabloids love story where one person gets to be the hero and one gets to be the villain and they've often set make an up as the villain and one story that got repeated over and over and over again. Was that meghan in the lead up to. Her wedding was a bridezilla that she made. Kate cry that she was being a tyrant about the bride's maid's dresses and that was repeated in so many outlets and megan. Set the record straight and said it was actually the other way around but kate was very apologetic. Kate sent me flowers a she did all the things. I would have done if i hurt. Someone's feelings and i forgave her. And i don't think that you know kate would necessarily want this falsehood out there but it never got corrected so she corrected herself last night.

Who's looks like he felt a little short term. Gators three took that with two hundred and forty two points. Now the final weekly had two hundred and seventy two players to start the season it bumped up to three hundred and forty three players so a whole bunch of people had joined us. But now we're back down to two hundred sixteen players so i'm thinking there was a consolidation period where nascar just dumped. Everyone who had goose eggs for the first brace the second race or both races and Either that or toby was pushing some buttons and deleted everybody in any event if you have played with us before all you have to log back in and make your picks in. You're good to go however you're going to have to join the league now. Okay so moving right along. Let's take a look at homestead miami speedway. I got three drivers free to take a look at starting with the number. Five kyle larson. It is time for him to show what he can do in the five car. He did not race year last year and two years ago he blew motor up here so it is important for him to shine in the five car this weekend in show what it is. He has for that hendra team and another guy to look at. Is the number eight tyler. Rettig he had a good first race here last year he got a fourth place finish and he scored a segment points in both segments. Were dirt track. Racers excel especially the rim writers. Tyler riddick and kyle larson both loved to ride the rim and the last guy will take a look at the number eleven car denny hamlin. He's superb at this track. He's got three wins here.

"But second race had depicted it without its polar icecap showing the rocky shores of the continent in a way that hadn't been seen for over 6000 years. Which begs the question. How did he know what it looked like so long before his time? What's more, his map utilized the market or projection technique. That's the standard for modern nautical navigation. But market or projection wasn't used in Europe until the late 15 sixties, decades after the race map had been completed. Where he learned to display his map in that format is still a mystery. By all accounts, the Piri Reis map was ahead of its time, so much so that its accuracy continues to stump cartographers and researchers around the world today, for example. Market or projection could not be verified or measured properly until 17 60 when the chronometer was invented, and yet race managed to position the South American coast.

Democrats take control of US Senate

"Forgiven if you don't remember it now. But the week began with the revelation that trump had called georgia's secretary state and pressured him over an hour to just recalculate the presidential vote in his favor to find the votes. Just one more than the margin to flip the state and on tuesday we had the georgia senate runoff which resulted in the improbable. Victories by democrat. Jon ossoff n raphael warnock today. Republican produce actually conceded the closer those two races and congratulated also on his. The two wins in georgia. Mean that senator mitch. Mcconnell will lose his job as majority leader because the senate will be split fifty fifty an incoming president kamala harris will hold the tiebreaker. So that's a bummer. For mitch. now there's a pretty urging question given the possibility of a second impeachment trial and generally about the agenda for the biden administration confirming cabinet members as well of when warnock ossoff. We'll be seated. After all the point of impeaching. The president isn't just impeachment. Second time to get him out of office requires two thirds of the senate to vote to convict which is tall order. Dangle thinks they wouldn't even take it up but two democratic senators were certainly helped the cause georgia counties until january fifteenth. One week from today to certify the election results after that the sector state. Brad robbins burger has another week until the twenty second to certify statewide and then finally the two incoming democratic centers can be sworn it now robbins. Berger says he's aiming to have the certified by joe biden's inauguration on january twentieth. That's no short thing. No matter what happens. Democrats will not have the senate majority in the senate until after the inauguration because again the vice president holds a tiebreaker. For what it's worth. If mike pence somehow becomes president in the next days he gets to choose new. Vp that spot does not automatically go to nancy. Pelosi or anyone else now. House democrats are looking to vote on articles of impeachment next week. If they passed by majority they would then good senate remember. Trump's last senate impeachment. Trial lasted four weeks so it seems unlikely we would see a senate vote anyway before january twentieth. There is a twist here. Which is that trump could potentially still be. Impeached leaves office. There's some legal debate on that question. Impeachment conviction doesn't just remove a president could also bar him from holding office in the future. What duke reports. Democrats believe that possibility could senate republicans some of whom are eyeing a twenty twenty four bid themselves matter what happens. The reality is that as bad as the week has been for the country and it's been one of the worst i've seen. We lost another almost four thousand people to the coronavirus. Today it's also been a disastrous week for the republican party. The dust clears democrats are about to take full control. The government house senate presidency and they have their work cut out for them

Some health could soon be on the way for beleaguered medical facilities. The state yesterday formally requested the 500 federal medical personnel be deployed in California to help staff hospitals and skilled nursing homes. Rank and file LAPD officers have rejected to move by their union to build a $10 million political war chest to fight efforts to defund the police. This comes as the union faces the possibility of losing hundreds of positions to covert related budget cuts and pressure for police reform. KCRW's Darryl Saxman explains the initiative, backed by leadership of the Los Angeles Police Protective League, would have cost cops about $45 a month out of their paychecks over two years. They said no, thanks. The union didn't share election results. But the L A Times reports that the so called protecting our profession assessment was defeated by a roughly 2 to 1 margin. In a statement, the union said it would look at other options for ensuring the interests of its members right now, that mostly means protecting them from potential layoffs. L. A leaders are considering cutting about 350 officers about 3.5% of the force. Help the city close an estimated $675 million budget shortfall. Meanwhile, black lives matter and other social activists continue to call for significant reductions in LAPD funding. And rapper music mogul Dr Dre thank medical workers and said he was doing great in a message on social media last night after he was treated at Cedar Side I Medical center for reported brain aneurysm.

It's morning Edition from NPR News. I'm Noel King. And I'm Steve Inskeep. Good morning. Two weeks from today. Joe Biden takes the oath of office as president of the United States on this morning. It is possible that Biden could take office with his party in control of both houses of Congress they needed to win to run off elections to take control of the Senate, both in Georgia yesterday. The Associated Press now says Democrats won the first race. Under leading In the second, Raphael Warnock becomes Georgia's first black senator. He spoke with our colleague Noel King on this program this morning. I was born and raised in the state. And they decided to send a kid who grew up in public housing. To the United States Senate to represent the concerns of ordinary people. This is an electorate that has become increasingly diverse is the result of work We've been doing for about a decade now. Welcome to the New Georgia. It is more diversity. It's more inclusive, and we turn now to Georgia Public Broadcasting's Stephen Fowler, who's been covering this election for months here. Good morning. Once again. Steve, Where do the two races stand? One of the numbers? So Raphael Warnock is ahead by about four times as many votes as Joe Biden narrowly won the state last month, and Jon Ossoff's is leading against David Perdue. But there are still enough votes out that it's too close to call and that the US operates is within the half a percent margin for a recount. Okay, so that one is still closed, Although Jonah's office claimed victory, But again The Associated Press which we'd NPR are following following their lead, because they've got a lot of people on the ground, they have not called the race. It's still too close to call at this point, but clearly a good day for for Democrats and let's let's talk about that. A little bit 4.4 million people voted yesterday and in the days leading up to yesterday. How's that compared to the electorate in November? Well, it's actually really, really close to November, which really stunned a lot of people on the ground, even with the hundreds of millions of dollars in investment And the high stakes of control of the U. S Senate. Ah, lot of people got out the vote, and much of that was done through early voting and absentee by mail voting, and it looks like the difference maker here is who showed up through those early voting methods, And it seems like way more Democrats took advantage of absentee by mail and that ended up giving them this decisive margin. Let me ask about one other factor. President Trump has a talent for making news stories all about him. Certainly did that in this case on Saturday, right before the election, called George's secretary of state, asked the secretary of state to commit fraud essentially and add just enough votes for Trump to win the state in the presidential election. Andhra Republican candidates avoided that question on the last day or two of campaigning. Is there any sign is to whether all that affected the outcome of this race. Well, I definitely think the president loomed large over this. Here's one number for you that could give a little credence to it. There was a third race on Georgia's ballot for the statewide Public Service Commission and the Republican incumbent there, Bubba McDonald. Actually got Morva oats than either Kelly Leffler or David Perdue in part because he didn't really run much on President Trump. What happened when President Trump visited the state on Monday are on on on on Monday to that change the results at all? Well, actually the congressional district that he was at in the 14th Congressional District, a Republican stronghold. It was a much lower turnout than some of the other congressional districts and the rest of the state. So it's possible that the president's rhetoric about a stolen election and not trusting in the election system kept some of his strongest supporters home. Okay some early conclusions anyway, Although we should note the votes are still being counted in one of the two Senate races is still undecided. Stephen Fowler. Thanks so much for your reporting really appreciate it. Thank you. If you're looking to buy a new handbag, some cognac or a lipstick, you could be looking at higher prices. That's because the Trump administration is putting new tariffs on goods from Europe.

"His positions at stake with these two races, uh, on the printed on the on the good time for Republicans, they've pretty label on pretty much every statewide runoff election we've had in Georgia since early 19 nineties. Okay, so but but on the Democratic side, this is the first one East. All pass run offs have been conducted within three weeks of the general election. This is the first one that goes nine weeks and into the next year, so a lot of money being pumped in there, too. So it's like a second campaign. The other thing that I found fascinating by a couple of your pieces recently is The delicate the relationship that the Georgia GOP has always had with the Ebeneezer Baptist Church, including Kelly, left Lear's media predecessor. He was very, very careful to pay tribute to the Reverend Warnock, wasn't he? Oh, this was Johnny Ice and in urine. You're absolutely right. I mean, I think he went. He wasn't there last year, but for the crew V 25 years previous he always made sure he was there. And you know, sometimes he was the only Republican of notes there, but But he is there is there is a a good section of the Republican Party in Georgia that realizes that if they become on Lee, the party of white people, they lose. You know it will take some time. But they lose that that race. Well, that's true nationally to I mean, that's just, you know, That's what they said after after Mitt Romney lost. Obviously, they famously previous did that for the obituary. Whatever they called it, You know how we're gonna widen the get a bigger tent and reach reach out to African Americans and Hispanics, and that That lasted all of about six months. Well, what was what What has happened is that Trump showed them that they can squeeze. You still squeeze a good many whites. World votes out of out of Americans, farmland, and that's That's what that's what's happened in Georgia, but their reach reaching the limit. Well, it's like it's like a loaf of bread at the edge of the table. You cut off a slice, and they eventually there's no more loaf left. You know you're gonna be Oh, it's gonna end any white men anymore. That's right. Exactly one of the things I noticed someone your block postings that you have a dog who has ambitions of one day climbing a tree. What breed of dog? Is that, sir? Well, he is a Fox found coonhound mix. He is his mom had a good deal of blue ticket him in her. So he is, uh, He's the first dog we've had who actually looks up trees and other birds.

Thank you for being here. Thanks, woman. Scott Parkinson at the club for growth has been with us all year talking about all the contested U s senate races. We still have a couple. Scott. Good to have you here. Great to be with you, Roman. Thanks for having me. We began this election cycle Scott, with Republicans having to defend over twice as many Senate seats as races have been called this past week. Where do we stand in terms of party control of the Senate? Well right now Republicans have 50 seats in the United States Senate and we've got two races down in Georgia that look like they're headed to a runoff. There's going to be a recount. Of ballots in Georgia, which could potentially swing that they between David Perdue and Jon Ossoff's, But all indications right now are that we're headed toe to Senate run offs in Georgia on January 5th. Republicans overall on election night performed really, really well in the United States Senate races. We've obviously been talking to your listeners about all these really close races that were worth watching on election night. And we knew that some of these races we're gonna be very difficult to win in Arizona. Martha McSally lost Mark Kelly and in Colorado, John Hickenlooper defeated Republican Cory Gardner. But when you look at the rest of these races Republicans ran the table. We want to close race in North Carolina, with Thom Tillis defeating Tell Cunningham. We want a big race in Maine, with Susan Collins defeating Sara Gideon. And up and down the country in Montana and Kansas. We just had a better turnout. Then a lot of the polling was showing and so Republicans are in a very, very good position here. We need to obviously win. One of these Georgia races to avoid unified government for the Democrats if Joe Biden ultimately is declared and certified the winner, But there's still a ways to go with that, and what we need to focus on now is Saving the Senate majority for the Republicans by winning these runoff races in Georgia. These two races in Georgia. We came to the runoff situation by very different routes. Both our incumbent, but the Kelly Leffler situation is a bit different. Yeah, Kelly less lira was appointed to The United States Senate by Governor Brian Kemp following the retirement of long time Georgia Senator Johnny Isakson and when she got that appointment, there was a pretty Brutal and big fight in the Republican circles between her and Doug Collins, who was a representative from the Ninth Congressional District in Georgia, and Congressman Collins fought hard for the nomination. He ultimately Finishing third place. But when you had two Republicans splitting the vote, and the way that this election was run, it was a jungle primary, meaning the top two vote getters would advance to a runoff. And so the Democrats Reverend Raphael Warnock is technically in the lead with Pie thirties, but you had to Republicans that went ahead and split the vote. But Kelly left there defeated. Collins in order to make one of those final two flats for the Georgia run off there in that seat, and then in the other race, David Perdue Just finish underneath 50% by on Lee a few votes, and so he looks like you say Seeing John off of both of these are going to be highly contested races. And come for growth and are super Pac Club for Growth action, actually joined with a bunch of other conservative outside groups and conservative senators. To launch the Save America Coalition this week, and that organization is ultimately gonna come down to Georgia and try toe do get out the vote efforts. Help Senator Leffler and Senator produce finish above 50% and these one offs. Tell us a little bit more about this Save America Coalition who's involved in We know the goal ultimately is to win these two elections. But what sort of strategies are you looking at? The other groups that are involved in this include heritage actions. FreedomWorks the Susan B. Anthony List Tea Party patriots, and then we've got about a dozen conservative senators like Ted Cruz. And Mike Leigh Sauce. Holly, Ron Johnson, Pat Toomey, Senator elect Tommy Tub, Erbil, Senator elect Cynthia Lummis, former United States senator and conservative pathology and demand. Marco Rubio and a couple others that are really joining together and thinking about ways to support Senator Leffler When it comes to really this get out the vote effort. We know that there's going to be $100 Million spent in this race when it comes to political advertisements on television through broadcasts and cable, and so what this coalition is going to be focusing on Is the tighter effort on getting out the vote, and we know that looking at the data following the election, overwhelming majority of Georgians believe that the election was stolen and there was not election integrity. And so what we need to do here is rebuilt that enthusiasm among Georgians that Really just have lost trust in the electoral system and make sure that they show up on January 5th or in early voting beginning in December. Toe cast a ballot and Democrats really have every reason to show up. If they can get unified government they can ran the Socialist agenda down the throats of the American people, and they can change the rules of the Senate. With the legislative filibuster, they can stack the stack and pack the Supreme Court. They can do anything that they want through a simple majority. If they have unified government now, a lot of people might ask. Well, Republicans had unified government in 2017 and 2018. Why didn't they do that? Well, Republicans Mostly adhere to the norms of our political institutions. And while we did advance tax reform through reconciliation in the United States Congress for the most part, I think that Republicans want toe Try toe enact policies that a majority and a super majority of the American people can agree with American Radio Journal is produced weekly by the Lincoln Institute of Public Opinion Research Incorporated.

The host David Weston. Thank you so much. And welcome back Charly Pellet. The election left Democrats too shy of a tie in the Senate. That tie would give them effective control. With the vote of Vice President elect Harris tipping the balance. The two run off elections scheduled in Georgia for early January, will decide whether they get those two votes so they have controlled the Senate or whether control the Senate remains with the Republicans. Two of the candidates, Democrat John Ausaf, and Republican incumbent David Perdue were on the hosting over the weekend. Trump is leaving Whether he knows it or not, And the question now is how we're going to contain this pandemic, which is raging out of control, which is spreading at an accelerating rate. Stand with us and let's make darn sure that the road to socialism never runs through the state of Georgia. Now we go to the state of Georgia Welcome Emory University political science professor Alan Abramowitz for his analysis of the two races. So, Professor Thanks for being back with us really appreciate it. First of all, let me put one thing to rest. And we would be asking about your time for change model predicting races, but that only works for the presidential is that right? Doesn't work in the run up for the Senate. Right now, Right? That's not for predicting Senator. It's It's a pity because you've been pretty accurate with that presidential one. So what do you know about what's going on with these two races in your home state of Georgia? Well, Georgia has this unusual rule that says, and, you know, general election if a candidate does not get a majority of the vote than the top two Going to run off, and that's the situation that we're in right now. When the I'll stop for do race. Neither one got 50%. There was a libertarian candidate who got 2 to 3% that kept either one from getting to 50. And then we have the other one, which is a result of the special election. We had 20 candidates running together and nobody got 50% and that so we have a runoff between Kelly Leffler, who was the appointed incumbent. And and Raphael Warnock was the finished first actually ahead of her among the 20 candidates. So now we're going to have these two run off at the same time. And if the Democrats could pick up both of those seats, I would bring them to 50. On that would allow comma Harris to cast the tie breaking vote in the Senate, which would give the Democrats Control of the Senate. So talk about the history of this run off because I have read, But you're the political science professor. So you could tell he was right in that that that these run offs really are something about product that Jim Crow that the thought was that if you if you get a plurality, not a majority, and there's a second run run, that the black voter is less likely to come out, then the white voter is that true. Yeah. I mean, I think a lot of these sorts of election rules Kind of go, go go back to the days of one party Democratic rule. You know, and mainly, they were intended for primary elections, so they're still our number of states that have run off. In primary elections. Georgia I believe is the only state that has run off all for general elections unless you want to count Louisiana, which is a very peculiar First system, but Um So yeah, it definitely definitely goes back to that euro was a time when African American voters generally did not. More were unable to vote for the most part. In in the Deep South, including Georgia. But there could be some irony because how motivated is the black vote in Georgia this time around? Well, there's no question. I think that that African American voters are highly motivated T turn out. We saw very high, uh, black turnout in the November election. Which is one of the main reasons why Joe Biden ended up Winning the state. And why we have these two run off elections, So ah, Lot of this was just going to come down to turnout to which party conjugate its voters to come back the boat again. January runoff election and there's going to be a very, very intense campaign here. And The advantage Democrats have compared with earlier runoff elections in Georgia is that in this one, we have a very high profile African American candidate running for one of those two seats. How much of a difference says the registration drive that I think Stacey Abrams gets a lot of credit for right in Georgia. How much of a difference is that made in this election? Well, there's a big increase that we've seen in the number of registered voters, especially the number of registered African American voters over the past four years has been a big factor in The growing Democratic vote in the state's 2018. We saw that in Stacey Abrams race where she became within just over 1% point. In in the governor's race, and then now in the presidential election, With Joe Biden winning, it's certainly the voter registration efforts of Stacey Abrams and others. Have have paid dividends and as well as the growing support for Democratic candidates in some of the suburban counties surrounding Atlanta, Cobb County in Gwinnett County. We've seen It's the dramatic shift. Those counties were strongly Republican. Eight years ago, they swung to the Democrats in 2016 and again in 2018, and now in 2020. Uh, Joe Biden won both of those counties by double digit margins, and and that was crucial. Are there any good state polls that you look too in Georgia? Well, I'm sure going. Yeah, I think the Atlanta Journal Constitution has done some good good polls here. They contracting with The University of Georgia to do they're holding for them in this in this last cycle, and they were pretty accurate. Um they had the presidential race. As well as the Senate race, one being very, very close, which was which was right on the money. The New York Times CNN poll actually was also very, very accurate on the presidential race in Georgia, so I'm not sure who's going to be pulling on the run off. I would expect.

Here's Why The Georgia Runoff Matters

"We are here to talk about the fact that georgia also is the site where control over. The senate will be decided in january. It all came down to this. We were hoping maybe it wouldn't but here we are Tell us just give us a refresher on. What exactly is happening here with these two. Run off raises. Why are georgians going to be voting in january of months. Yes so we had two senate seats up for election in november in georgia. Has this law where you have to win. Fifty percent plus one vote in order to win outright to avoid a runoff On our regularly scheduled senate race between republican incumbent david purdue and democratic candidate john off. It was a really tight race. But there was a libertarian and so ultimately neither of them one more than fifty percent so they're forced into a runoff and then we have our special election which was pretty much assumed to go into a run-off because there were twenty one candidates on the ballot and in fact that is what happened and we have republican incumbent. Senator kelly leffler who was appointed about a year ago defending her seat against democratic nominee raphael. Warnock who's a pastor of martin. Luther king junior's church in atlanta. And before we come back to these two races and what's going on in georgia kelsey. I feel like we cannot understate important. These outcomes are to what happens the next two years in washington. Yeah so democrats have a. What is shaping up to be an extremely narrow majority in the house and they are looking to control the senate with these two races. The this is what changes the balance of power in the senate and the bounce power in the senate is important regardless of the house because it has a lot to do with approving judges and nominees and the relationship between the senate and the white house has one that's really important particularly in the first one hundred days of an administration. One of the things that is also really really interesting about this is that these runoff elections are happening. After the first day that congress comes into session. We know that the end of the month is when the inauguration happens but congress comes into session at the beginning of the month and the senate will not even be able to organize until these are settled. So this leaves washington in kind of a frozen state until georgia has it say and kelsey. Even though best case scenario democrats would be fifty fifty. Is it's worth just just repeating again. That with the majority that vice presidential boat would give democrats that means chuck schumer and not mitch. Mcconnell would decide everything that comes up for a vote or not on the senate floor. Yeah the majority party has a lot of control in the senate. There are a lot of arguments about minority rights in the senate. And what what you know. What the minority party should be able to do That part of why we have a conversation about the filibuster. It is an opportunity for the minority party to kind of slow things down but the majority leader controls what goes on the floor. The majority leader decides whether or not a nominee comes to the floor. There is a lot of power in that. there's also a lot of power and being the majority party at the head of committees committees. That can you know. Send subpoenas or can work on tax laws or you know. They're the list of things that committee chairs can do is extremely long and something that often gets lost in the conversation because people think oh. Well you know. It's just a committee right. They're not. It's not a vote at the full level of the senate but there's a lot of policy that gets made at that committee level.

Two Georgia races will decide which party controls the Senate

"The Senate is currently split with two races still to be called on to others in Georgia to be decided in a January 5th run off Now it's pretty clear at this point that in Alaska, Sullivan is going to win the Republican In North Carolina, Thom Tillis. Basically it's already in the bag, so they'll hold those two seats based on what we have in front of us now, David Purdue is gonna run off with this guy, John. Looks like a sock puppet and Kelly lawful er she's It's like the more precarious situation. These two Republican senators right now in Georgia in a runoff January fits both of these. Go to a runoff On January 5th on Kelly lost forgets his Warnock. And and the Republicans only need to hold one of those Georgia presuming that they hold assuming that they hold North Carolina with Tillis and Alaska with Sullivan. Then they only need to get one either. Perdue who looks like he's very state against this guy, John In a January 5th runoff election, but the Democrats going to throw the kitchen sink and the you know the Winnebago and your grandmother's house, they're gonna throw everything at it. They're going to get their billionaires to go in front of it, and then to cry money and politics. And they're going to try to steal the Senate. Get control of the Senate by whatever means necessary by hook and by crook.

Control of Senate still uncertain with a few races left to be determined

"Is between Republican Senator David Perdue and Democrat John Assaraf. If Jonah's Off can pull David Perdue down below that 50% mark that race will go to a runoff A swell. Joining us now is Shivan Hughes, Capitol Hill reporter at The Wall Street Journal. They're joining us. Theo von Good to be here wanted to get an update on the elections. The Senate was something that a lot of people were focusing on. We've already kind of talked about how the polls were wrong again, or the races weren't as tight as we thought. You know, there was a lot of talk about Democrats possibly picking up a lot of Senate seats, possibly flipping the Senate. It doesn't look like that's gonna happen now. But there are some pickups that the Democrats did get, and there's still a few races that we have yet to call on this. So Shiven tell us a little bit about what's going on in the Senate. So right now, the Senate stands at an even 48 48 48 for Democrats, 48 for Republicans, Democrats picked oven at one seat because they won seats in Colorado and Arizona. But they lost a seat in Alabama. So that's where you get the net one. There are four races that are outstanding one in Alaska, where the Republican Dan Sullivan is expected to win and one in North Carolina, where that Republican Thom Tillis is expected to win, so to holds, the focus now is on to Georgia Senate races. One of them is already going to go to a runoff next year. That's the one featuring Republican Senator Kelly La Flor, who is defending that seat. The other one is between Republican Senator David producer and Democrat Jon Ossoff's. If Jon Ossoff's can pull David Perdue down below that 50% mark that race will go to a runoff. A swell If both races go to a runoff, and if Democrats pick up both seats, Democrats would have 50 seats total, which, if Joe Biden becomes the president means that Democrats would be in control. But that's a very, very narrow pathway for Democrats to climb and already you hear Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. Sounding confident that he is going to be the majority leader next year. You know, I mentioned the poles and how wrong they were or how off they were. What do polls say about these two races? At least, I mean, if they're going to run off their already really tight races to begin with. So going into this, The Poles did show that these were going to be very tight races, at least especially in the case of David Perdue. He had started out in the polls a little bit ahead and then in the public polls going into this, he was less than a percentage point behind so well within the margin of error. And the point that suggested it was a dead. He we now have ah, different kind of pole in the form of the fact that people have now voted and we're seeing those votes start to come in. Currently, we have David D'oh at about the 50% mark, with votes still to be counted on absentee basis. We're looking in particular at those Atlanta suburbs, and that compares to about 47.7% for the Democrat John Assaraf with the libertarian at about 2% points, so a very, very close race there. Our Democrats looking in the house. That was another one where they said, you know, there was a possibility of them gaining seats that actually looks like they lost a few seats. So what's going on in the House of Representatives? The races aren't fully called yet. But yes, Democrats were sure they were going to pick up seats, maybe on the order of about 10 seats this cycle, and instead, Democrats are losing seats down by about seven, according to our last count. You're seeing Democrats like Joe Cunningham in South Carolina. Having lost in suburban areas like outside of ST Louis and Wagner's seat in Missouri. She held on to that Nazi which Democrats about they're going to be able to flip in New York State. Max Rose was not looking likely to keep the Democratic seat also Anthony Brindisi in a more western part of the state, not looking likely to keep his seat. So this was not a good election for Democrats. And as we Speak. The House Democrats are in the middle of a private conference call where you have to be sure they are hashing these issues out, and it's probably not very pretty. So, as you mentioned again, this kind of leaves us with the two houses divided again, just as we've had this past four years of President Trump, so whoever comes in, it'll be pretty difficult to get anything done again. Just as we've been going through. It's going to be really hard to get anything done. And because the outcome in the Senate is uncertain, we don't know exactly what's going to be possible. But whatever it is, it's going to be a lot less ambitious than what Democrats were thinking. Democrats were already planning for a big Corona virus relief package early next year. They had been planning to do major legislation on climate change, and you're seeing those be scaled back. I'm hearing people talk about maybe an infrastructure package that has Eluded both parties for so long, maybe something on broadband. I'm starting to hear with expectations that Joe Biden is likely to be the victor. Is there anything that he could do through executive action? Could he take money that Congress has already appropriated it and repurpose that it wouldn't be nearly enough as what Democrats are hoping to achieve their covert aid bill, but they're starting to explore alternative pathways.

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.

Well, truthfully, they have they haven't been caught is demanding as your primary opponents in courses this Coleman. But I don't know if I've gotten more used to the campaign trail or got no, I'm not sure what you do. We've just been overwhelmed with the support here in the county and Shelby county. It's it's been it's been amazing Paul what has been the biggest difference going from the primary which was pretty competitive Heidi Shaffer, and Steve macmanus and yourself all vying for that slot along a couple of others. Also, the got in their thing. What what's been the big difference? Then transitioning now over to the general campaign where it's just you and one other person. I really think the biggest difference is been the support we've gotten from those that supported the other candidates, certainly they had the privilege the right, and and probably the the duty to support their candidate. But they have all come alongside. You said, hey, you're a candidate. Now, we're going to support you, and that's really been a blessing to see that support. And to get to know those people that supported the other candidates better into to realize our common goals or or or. There are goals are really one in the site. We're trying to do the best for our district following you meet a voter, and they talk to you about your platform. How do you introduce yourself? What do people what should voters know about you? If they're going to pull that lever today. Well, I think the thing that I'll say first of all that is I am a Christian and Christian values. Do the best amount -bility dictate. How about in the decisions that I make? I am a conservative. And of course, that drives me to being a Republican. Encourage them to look at my values, and those values line up with there's no matter who wins today big shoes to fill with Mark Norris. Right. Yeah. I don't think I plan to fill them out. Just try to walk behind even. Every once in a while lock and step in his footsteps. And polls, of course, open today. I believe until seven o'clock they're open now if somebody's out there, and you know. You know, this really isn't that big of a deal. What what would you say to somebody? That's maybe on the fence not necessarily about who they would vote for. But about just getting in a car going to the polling place today. Yeah. I think it's frustrating for any of us care about the future of our of our country, overstate what your county elections. I just I really encourage people to understand how important yesterday vote because. You actually have a right. I think to go to either candidate say, hey, I I'd like to talk to you about certainly they can do that. Anyway. But I think they've got a stronger leg to stand on what they've actually exercise the rights of those. Yeah, I I agree with you. I've said before it just blows me away low voter turnout not just in in in this race or any other race. But just in general that we see in local races heck sometimes in federal races as well. When I mean, it's it's it's such a precious. Right. That we're given Paul that ability just think we can affect change just by going to the ballot box, and he very peaceful way. And it just blows me away. Not more people want to take part in it.
