"Weeks away. But nearly 38 million voters have already cast their ballots. That includes roughly 1.5 million voters in Virginia, where incumbent Democratic Senator Mark Warner is facing off against Republican challenger Daniel Gate. In a state that's become increasingly blew some of called Gates Campaign a longshot recent polling shows Warner up by almost 16 point. We've had Senator Warner on the show twice this year, but we haven't heard from his opponent yet. And that changes today. Daniel Gate. Welcome to one, eh? It's a pleasure to be on Earth. You thank you so much. And we should note that Daniel was also a professor at American University, which holds the license for our parent station. W AM. You So you're a military veteran and a disability rights activists running for office for the first time. What made you decide to run? Well, you're right. I'm a military veteran. I spent 25 years in the U. S Army and was wounded in combat twice decorated for valor, gave a leg in combat my hip level amputee and then later went on to get a PhD and a master's degree in public policy working in both the Bush and the Trump administration, so I'm a public policy expert, and I consider this race an extension of my military service, in the sense that I've been under oath to the Constitution my whole life, and this is just more service as someone with a little experience in politics. You've been running in part on the idea that you're Ah Washington. Outsider. Why do you see that as an advantage? Well, it's an advantage because you know, I think Virginians are sick of and nationally you see people sick of career politicians who have done little to solve our problems. I'll give you a couple of examples. When Mark Warner took office in 2008, he pledged 2009. He was elected Noh eight, but he pledged to be a budget hawk and back Then the deficit was $12 trillion, and now it's something like $27 Trillion or the debt rather And on issue after issue. There's a history of broken promises here, and even the Washington Post's no friend of Republicans said that he had quote muddled through his time in the Senate with few signature accomplishments. That's from spring of 2019 so This is who the career politicians are, and people are sick of it. They want career servants, and I'm a career servant of the Constitution. And that's the fundamental difference between us. But Republicans have held a majority in the Senate for some time. So how much of that? Can you lay? At Senator Warren Warner's feet. Will remember at the beginning of his time in the Senate. Back in 09, 10 and 11. The Democrats had a super majority in the Senate, not just a majority, but a super majority and and the White House and for the bulk of his time in the Senate, the White House and the Senate have been Held by Democrats, So it's not. It's true that there has been some fiscal indiscipline by Republicans as well. And I'm not in favor of that, either. What? Explain a little bit one example. What approach which you take to fiscal responsibility if elected. Oh, sure, one thing we need and I know a lot of people talk about this, and then they get to Washington. See and forget about it. D C has proven that we need about balanced Budget amendment and it can have an escape hatch for emergencies with, you know, some kind of three quarters majority in both houses to override for a period of time and You can write it so that it's not a suicide pact. But we absolutely must have that. And that means we need to weigh need to take seriously our obligation to our future generations. And that's something that I care deeply about. Do you think there's a political will for that kind of move? No, there's not on Capitol Hill. Of course, there's not, And the reason there's not is because they all are feeding at the same trough, Republicans and Democrats alike. But there's absolutely political will for it on Main Street, and it's a very populist thing, people. That's what people want. People want Washington to spend within its means, just like every state has to and just like every family has to. So if this is not rocket science, so if you're critiquing both Democrats and Republicans for this issue, how would you shift that dynamic if you're elected? Well, The first thing is that we need to elect Republicans who have a spine and we need Teo and we need to work. Of course we need to work cross, but we also need to tie into our core principles and his Republicans. Far too often, We've abandoned our core principles in favor of short term gain. And so that's you know, that's a broad based critique of my party and of end of, frankly, the other party as well. There hasn't been a Republican elected to statewide office in Virginia for more than 10 years, and some of called your Senate run a serious long shot. What makes you think Virginia could shift red again? Well, a couple of things one is you know, in the last quarter, I actually outraised Mark Warner, which was fantastic. And and what we're seeing at the doors on our phone calls and in our polling is that when independence here about me And my bio just my history of service to the country and my qualifications for the office. The fact that I have a PhD in policy they're coming over 2 to 12 to one and part of that is Mark Warner's failures on you Know, he voted against Cove it really for Virginia families. He voted he put in a budget that defunded the police by $50 million in 2002 as governor. And when people discovered that kind of thing, they're like, Wait a second, he says. He's moderate. But in actuality he's not. And so that kind of betrayal is really digging in and people are sick and tired of it. Well as we speak. There's a debate in Congress

"So here's what we've got is breaking news and I want to get it but that's kind of an assessment of this from everybody and that is Adam Schiff said he will have public hearings next week with the William Taylor George can't and Maria Ivanovic now this is these people already testified so as I said it's kind of a case or even baked here so the issue really becomes at this point is what what happens in these proceedings fan paint what these proceedings are going to look like well these proceedings are gonna be the house Intel committee which again controlled by chairman shift and the majority is is held thirteen to nine Democrat to Republican for member J. that's significant because of Republicans I want to call any additional witnesses to participate next week they're not going to be able to do so because chairman ship for the night under the resolution that was passed by the house but in that committee J. what you're going to see is most likely opening statements from these witnesses and then you're most likely going to see ninety minutes of questioning divided between the chairman and the ranking member during which jae they are permitted to defer to counsel for questioning so the only council in the room is Jordan pointed out the first segment broadcast may be on behalf of chairmanship certainly not on behalf of those individual council members will be able to ask questions we're just going to emerge the chairman and the ranking member are permitted to defer to them during the question that was part of what the house authorize I don't know whether they will or not J. but they are permitted to do so after that each other every other member of the committee will have five minutes to conduct questions and we'll see if it goes beyond that for for another round Jordan was so let's see we do it there was politics yesterday because you had two major elections yeah okay the Republican governor lost although there's a libertarian candidate in there that got almost twenty five thousand so down ballot I mean every other statewide Republic position was one easily by Republicans him some popular Republican governor age bottom line only so much you can do it whether the president I'd states here the Republican Party whether Mitch McConnell when you get a popular governor like that in a state that does should go Republican it did for the most part it and every other statewide office that did that new democratic governors got to deal with the Republican Attorney General Republican lieutenant governor Republican secretary of state Republican state auditor who won easily also in Mississippi a race that their worry what could be close the Republican one there that in Virginia things are just getting worse for Republicans that's not anything new it's just a purple state turning more and more blue and and that's how I see Virginia so for the first time in a generation the house of delegates the Virginia Senate and all the all the major statewide elected offices are held by Democrats in Virginia that is the first time so I understand the Planned Parenthood is now firmly in charge of the Virginia state government member was governor Ralph Northam we talked about those I will keep them comfortable babies born alive during botched abortions late term abortions will keep them comfortable will make a decision with the mother about what to do we had that late term abortion the legislation similar to new York's be introduced in the house of delegates that had no chance when Republicans were in control but Democrats are in control now so expect radical pro abortion legislation coming out of Virginia and being signed by its radical pro abortion very controversial governor who remained in place because they have a very controversial lieutenant governor shows you how blue the state is becoming that that that his whole problems with the black face and racism and the KKK outfit and and all of that sexual harassment issues he survived that the Democrats kept them in power and now the Democrats have taken back for the first time in a generation both they they now control every branch of region is government yeah I will take your calls at one eight hundred six eight four thirty one ten that's eight hundred six eight four three one one zero let's go ahead and take a call your reaction to all of this news including this hearings next week let's take a phone call yeah it was a good call from Chicago online to Mary Ellen welcome to J. secular life is a good question hi Merial yeah hello quick question why can't president trump's legal team to some kind of a press conference or whatever and go out there and have tell them that they will not participate in this jam impeachment process unless president Chuck a legal team what have the right to question this kind of left the station because what they've done and I'll go go to fail in this but what they've done is in the house intelligence committees been could that this what's so unusual about this impeachment inquiry normally it's done within the context of the Judiciary Committee here it's done in the house intelligence compartments like committee on intelligence completely different situation okay in that context they've had these interviews no lawyers for the president no counsel for the White House no agency council no one allowed in now you're going to this public way and then pass the baloney the White House council sent a very strong letter to the house we so that the process is flawed there's a lack of due process you don't get retroactive due process so now all they're doing is what they've done and in in the dark of night they're going to do during bright daylight except fan these people already testified they've already testified Jan I think the reason that the attorneys for the present are not being allowed in the room is pretty clear I don't think they could hold up under the scrutiny of cross examination but look I want to read directly from page three of the resolution was passed by the house because it permits the chair in the ranking member of the house intelligence committee to quote yield to a permanent select committee employee J. that's an attorney so they're gonna be permitted to yield to an attorney to question these witnesses yet the president's not gonna be able to and remember the reason this is happening inside the house intelligence committee is because the normal committee of jurisdiction the house Judiciary Committee chaired by Jerry Nadler they didn't feel like he could do a good enough job J. so they took it away from him and tossed it to Adam Schiff enter now denying this due process don't be deceived why there aren't attorneys allowed in the room this is it yeah yeah I know exactly what they're not allowed in the room I mean there's no question they don't wanna says he knows what he's three individual specifically they are for and stay come from the foreign service world of so they're bureaucrats so the likelihood that they're gonna take exactly Sir executive privilege is unlikely so that and and that there be a battle that over whether not they even wanted to so these were people running the kick to the committee yeah because I don't like the policies of this president that's what all this is and so and and again when you look through IT Marie of honor which is a someone upset because she got fired for a position as a **** Ukraine yeah and then the others again George kid policy probably wasn't being implement the way he won't it's exactly will sailor again these are people who they don't like the policies of this president and they're used to dealing with traditional Republican and Democrat elected officials at the White House who let them just do their thing yeah so here this is a president who says no I'm the president you don't get to just do your thing I've got policies I want to implement if you don't like them I I will go over you you were not the present he was supposed to just carry out the executives goals in when it comes to foreign policy so what you have I think it's very clear here I mean they they did making this maneuver and it's time to specific way why the times specific way because the fact of the matter is this is really a policy dispute this is an impeachment over a policy dispute they don't like the phone call with the transfer of the phone calls out they don't like with the president's actions are in Ukraine generally so they're complaining well I mean that may be interesting but what's the legal relevance of it so this one item ships said though just moments ago those open hearings that will be an opportunity for the American people to evaluate.
