"zach montelera" Discussed on The Takeaway

"Takeaway and it is good to have you with us on our politics show now. It went down in new jersey this week on tuesday night. Democratic incumbent governor phil murphy debated republican challenger. Jack shit rally in the panel debate of the new jersey gubernatorial race. There are only two candidates running for office but three opponents showed up at the debate. Murphy should ereli and the crowd we thank you. I like to believe that y'all out there as you're listening to the takeaway are either cheering or booing with the same kind of jersey level enthusiasm and i tell you. It's pretty wild outside the debate hall to former new jersey. Governor republican christine. Todd whitman is among the leaders of a new movement to purge trump loyalist and reinvigorate mainline conservativism within the republican party. There called the renew america movements. We need regular americans to step forward and we're calling only now this week. The republicans of the renew america movement they endorsed to new jersey democrats and a philadelphia democrat in those bids for state legislative seats and while new jersey republicans are fighting for the soul of their party. Virginia democrats seem to be sitting on the sidelines of their gubernatorial contest in northern virginia democratic stronghold. Possible problems for the former governor early voting had already begun in the commonwealth. And the numbers. In virginia's bluest counties are way down compared to 2017. Fairfax arlington and alexandria sent. Just six of virginia's early votes. So far that's a huge drop. From the last governor's race when the blue bastion ultimately delivered a full third of virginia's early votes. Okay down in the peach. State georgia's election battle is less about candidates and campaigns and more about fairness and fraud on wednesday. A judge in the state dismissed the final lawsuit from the twenty twenty election litigation. He ruled that the plaintiffs have no standing to sue. The fulton county election board. But the decision comes on the heels of to fulton county election workers being fired for shredding registeration forms. So i'm thinking it's probably pretty safe to assume that confidence in the state's electoral system is less than robust the twenty twenty two midterms approach. There's a lot of state politics shaping up around the country and that's where we begin. Today's politics roundtable with jessica taylor. The senate and governor's editor for the cook. Political report with amy walter and zach montelera state politics reporter at politico. Haven't hi there or i want to begin with you. Jessica were the takeaways from the governor's debate in new jersey this week. I think that there's passion that people on both sides and new jersey certainly has a reputation for kind of being a rough and tumble so. I wasn't really surprised to covert issues. Have driven lot of people to become more engaged. And you have governor so murphy. There that has put on some pretty strict restrictions and a misdemeanor sort of test of whether voters approve of those. We do see they have that foles. You know he's mandated masks in schools More controversial step. He took recently was actually mandating kids over to if they are in daycare certain things that they now have to wear mass. That's not in push back up. Upsetting pushback from chile rally But of course new jersey was at the height of the pandemic to begin with but you know cases have been more under control than even some southern less populated states that they've had to deal with but I see covert is a major issue Happening here and i think you saw that reflected in perhaps the debate limit come down here to us and ask What you make of this renew. America movement and specifically that. It's lead in part by christine. Todd whitman the first woman to serve as governor of the state of new jersey and sort of a republican of different era. But clearly here. Making bipartisan effort. To actually bring different kinds of folks into the system. And you know i am. Broadly relatively skeptical of the you know anti-trump wing of the republican party We've seen displayed kind of over and over and over again However they do within the republican party at now you know how many of these voters who were soft republicans in decades past nowadays identifies democrats identify as independence who are voting democratic in the suburban areas. That we've heard so much about over the last four years right like so. What is the crowd that these groups are kind of reaching for that. That's the big question right. Did most of those people who you know identify as a christine todd whitman republican or they already democrats have already jumped over to the other side. They staying there I tend to believe that at this point in the suburban shifts are. We've we've seen the shift in the suburbs of the last four years of the last decade. Whatever you wanna call it And these groups with people who former republican elected officials are really the folks without a helmet this point and yet the that sort of that dynamic of of a republican party like the new jersey republican party which to be clear it's quite different than republican parties and other parts of the country that dynamic that there was booming and cheering and the kind of almost trump rally like atmosphere at that new jersey gubernatorial debate. Fact does that. Tell you something about You know the fact that there is still this this acrimony. Despite the fact that you've got these like i guess we're gonna call them politically homeless republicans in the state. Yeah told me. I grew up on the right side of the hudson river. I'm a native new yorker so gripe from new york and new jersey now but like i think that's you know i don't call it par for the course for tristate area politics right. But you know we new yorkers new jersey and certainly a little bit we're willing to share their opinions about About what they think of their politicians there was that ad from governor murphy. And i think it was only online this week Just kind of poking fun hour his opponent when he was i think it was city council when he held a local office tried to ban swearing right and only only in the tri-state area. Only in new york on the new jersey is probably a bad thing. I yeah. I'm pretty sure it's already banned down here in north carolina i live. Everyone's very polite. Like oh my goodness is about as bad as it gets. Yeah so you know. I think it's just a different kind of atmosphere that you know that. Us new yorkers new jersey folks in the area carrier themselves just a little bit differently. I don't. I don't know if that's any sign of increased equity in the state or not. I think acrimony is already built in some. you know we've just been talking about the ways that republicans in new jersey might be different but it's also true. The democrats are a bit different. They're an impart because there is that long tradition in the tri-state area around on the strength of policing firefighters first responders and i'm wondering if murphy's positions on civilian review boards and also some you know additional sort of tightening around police. Local police departments might actually alienate some of the potential democratic voters. Who could support murphy. That's the big question with noxious governor murphy but a lot of democrats as the party. Realign and shift you know. How do you hold onto sometimes thought of as blue collar jobs. I don't necessarily know that in new york area police. Firefighter has much in common with somebody who works a elsewhere blue collar. how. How do you hold onto the blue collar jobs while also increasingly suburban tilt of these parties new jersey very famously suburbs to new york city on edge. It's striking that balance between can reach these voters that democrats have traditionally talked to you know blue collar union workers at while you know pushing social Social messages that.

"Presented by google. Good morning playbook i. It's tuesday june eighth. I'm all in and this. Is your political playbook daily briefing two days after west. Virginia senator joe manchin announced his opposition to the for the people act. The democratic party's top legislative priority on voting rights a group of black and civil rights leaders will visit mansion today. We're told the meeting was recommended by national urban league president and ceo mark morial and we'll set up a few weeks ago. Those who know mentioned well have told us the senators mind. isn't open to persuasion on the bill so we asked some participants how they plan to approach the meeting today. Here's what we are back. Derrick johnson president and ceo of the nwa c. P. kept expectations low in an interview. Last night the goal of the meeting for us in the civil rights leadership is to establish and build a relationship. There was no particular item on the agenda but we will have a conversation about our policy priorities and hopes to open up the dialogue so that we can in fact have the type of give and take opportunity to ensure that all americans are supported. Johnson said he also plans to remind mansion of the steps. He took as secretary of state in west virginia to expand voting. We'll be watching especially closely. To what reverend al sharpton who's also attending will say afterward. Reverend sharpton has had some criticism of mansion in the past telling our very own eugene. Daniel's march depression that we are going to pull mansion is calling the filibuster racist and saying that they are ineffective supporting racism while mentioned might be the only one publicly taking the heat for shutting down the bill. We're told a couple. Democratic senators are privately unhappy with how expensive the bill is. There apparently afraid to say on the record in fact every single senate democrat except mansion. Cosponsored the bill. So what makes this bill. So controversial political zach. Montelera has a good read this morning on some of the bills most contentious provision measure would combat restrictions to voting access that gop. Legislators have adopted recently as well as mandate nationwide mail in voting same day voter registration and at least two weeks early voting but zac notes that before the people act also includes provisions long opposed by the gop and even some democratic constituencies. they include effectively nullifying some voter. Id requirements instituting new donor disclosure requirements for dark money spending in politics that provision is opposed by the aclu for being overly broad another one creating a new public financing system for campaigns particularly moderate democrats privately this provision another provision shifting the power to re district from state legislators to a national commission several congressional black caucus members dislike that idea so after all that. Here's the big question that maybe some of you are asking. What's next mansion. And more than a few voting rights activists want the chamber to pass h r four. The john lewis voting rights act. It would be a smaller bill that would counter some of the efforts by state. gop legislatures one key provisions that bill it would resurrect doj oversight of voting laws in states with a history of racial discrimination maintenance said he'll even go one step further and make the provisions apply to all fifty states. Here's the problem though. So far alaska senator. Lisa murkowski is the only republican whose publicly joined mansion in this effort and late last night. Nbc's suhil kapoor reported that the bill faces a steep climb in the senate as well. It's a challenging one. Murkowski told kapoor. You've got to find an awful lot of republicans to join us on this. It's the latest edition of the democratic. Party's big challenge in the first year of the biden administration. What are you better off doing fighting for a big change that your supporters want but which won't likely pass or being able to realize a more moderate but achievable goal even if it falls short of what the base really wants. Here's the agenda in washington today. Starting with the white house at ten. Fifteen a m eastern. The president will receive the president's daily brief. The white house covid nineteen response team and public. Health officials will hold a briefing at ten fifteen. Am press secretary. Jen psaki and e.

PODCAST received their professional insiders Kit for attending Ota trade dot com slash podcast and now the impeachment news in well. Let's just say five minutes or less we're going to go slightly long this time today former. US Ambassador to Ukraine. Marie Ivanovich testified. Provide an open hearings in the house right before she appeared the White House released yet another summary of a different phone call between president trump and then president elect elect Zilenski of Ukraine. I have read that summary and to be frank. There is nothing notable about that call. There's a Lincoln show notes if you WanNa read it but let's move on as Ivanovich began testifying. Today was clear that trump was watching. We know this because he began tweeting about the proceedings and criticizing. The witness. This was was a bit unexpected. Because part of the testimony was specifically about how the witness had allegedly been the subject of a smear campaign by Rudy Giuliani. The president's Wentz lawyer she was also the subject of negative comments by the President himself and at times she had feared for her own safety. Because of this after the president's tweets went out somebody printed them and chairman. Adam Schiff. Pass them around the room while the testimony continued. So I'm going to play a clip appear. I think this is the best summary of today's hearing you're GonNa get this manages to combine the witnesses professional history some specific context around her testimony today. Plus plus a notable event. That happened in real time and very well may lead to a new article of impeachment. Daniel Goldman the lawyer for the Democrats speaks speaks first then Ivanovich replies then shift speaks and Yvonne speaks to more listen in so let me see if I got this right. You were one of the most senior diplomats in the State Department. You've been there for thirty three years in won numerous awards. You've been appointed as an ambassador three times times by both Republican and Democratic Presidents and the State Department would not issue a statement in support of you against false allegations because they were concerned about a tweet from the president of the United States. That's my understanding. If I could fall on that question it seems like an appropriate time. One of its As we sit here testifying the president is attacking you on twitter. And I like to give you a chance to respond. I'll read part of one of his tweets everywhere. Maria von which which went turned bad. She started off in Somalia. How did that go? He goes on to say later. TWEET IS A. US presence absolute right to appoint ambassadors first of all she image. The Senate has a chance to confirm or deny it. Do they not. Yes advise and consent but would you like to respond to the president's attack that everywhere you went. Turn Bad I I mean I. I don't think I have such powers not Mogadishu's Somali smalley. Yeah not in other places. I actually think that Where I served over the years I- others have demonstrably really made things better for the US as well as for the country's on that I've served in Ukraine for example where there are huge which challenges including on the issue that we're discussing today of corruption huge challenges that they've made a lot of progress since two thousand fourteen including in in the years that I was there and I think impart Ukraine people get the most the most credit for that but a part of that credit goes to do the work of the United States and and to me as the ambassador in in the united in Ukraine buster you show them the courage to come forward today testify notwithstanding the fact you're by the the White House or State Department not to notwithstanding the fact that as you testified earlier the president implicitly threatened do in that call record and now the president real time is attacking you. What effect do you think that has other witnesses willingness to come forward and expose wrongdoing? It's very intimidating to dine designed to intimidate is not I mean. I can't speak to what the president is trying to do but I think the effect what is to be intimidating. Well I WanNa let you vascular that some of us here take witness intimidation varies very very seriously moments. Later senator. Kamala Harris tweeted part of that clip and wrote quote witness. Intimidation is a crime and quote the next stop a quick check on who has qualified for the December. DNC DEBATE BAIT right now. That list is pretty slim. It's just Biden. Buddha Judge Harris Club HR Sanders and Warren however. There are three three candidates. Who are on the cusp of making it? And technically given the volume of new polling coming out there could be some kind of new rising star effect where somebody with zero polls booker. Patrick or Bloomberg somehow makes up to four poles and gets in real quick at the last minute reading from a twitter threat thread by Zach Montelera of politico quote. We could have as many as five early state qualifying polls that count towards the December debate. Coming out this weekend. We know the Iowa des Moines Register. Poll is coming out on Saturday evening. And we'll have to wait and see what individual states. CBS releases releases so. Watch this space to see. If gabbard steer and Yang hit the December polling threshold Gabbard inspire each need one poll and more donors and Yang needs to polls at this point. I think we're looking at all three qualifying for December and quote and if they all do qualify that would mean nine people on stage.

"If you can find one some years back, I actually watched the Bush Kerry debates in a movie theater full of people. And that was surprisingly awesome, okay item. Three here is the most important thing. I want you to consider doing during the debates especially if you have kids around really this is a note for everybody. And that is when a topic comes up during the debates that you don't know much about I urge you to write it down. Like, if you're not sure what I don't know, carbon capture and sequestration is or the details about reparations or some weird. Word or acronym, like HUD, or US MCA just write it down. And then later on you can look it up, or you can ask me on Facebook or Twitter, and I will do a little mini segment to address the QNA for that kind of stuff. So that's my main thought while you're planning reviewing, even if it's just you by yourself, which is, by the way, how will be watching this, because, you know, it's kind of my job, please make room to make a note of the things you don't know that much about the fact of that, as we'll come out of these multi-hour, marathons with a better understanding of both the candidates, and the issues. Montana governor, Steve Bullock, just barely missed the cut off for the first dates as I reported earlier this week he has qualified for the second set next month or definitely looking at tiebreakers to whittle that field down to twenty people. So the question for today is what's bullet gonna do on those debate nights next week? Well, he's actually got a pretty solid plan. I gotta hand handed to him. This guy is making lemonade right now. Okay. So his plan is to hold televised town halls before the debates air in both Iowa and New Hampshire. He's doing one each night, and they will air in the hour before the main event by doing this. He's reaching those crucial early voters, even without the national audience tuning in, and he's getting a ton more time than the five or ten minutes, each candidate in the main debates is likely to get reading from a political story by Alex Thomson, quote, we'll look will appear June twenty-sixth on. I was WHO TV with Dave price and June twenty-seventh on New Hampshire's w. AM you are with Adam Sexton, the appearances will be televised a head of the debates in Miami, rather than concurrently, and quote, meanwhile, a different story. Zach Montelera reported on a poll conducted by politico and morning. Consult about the debates themselves and whether voters think the process for candidates getting on the stage has been fair. This is pretty interesting to me because they asked whether voters had opinions about those DNC rules. That's the stuff about sixty five thousand donors and one percent in three different polls, and all that, these are things that I've talked about on this show over and over, but, you know, let's face it, y'all are a very engaged crowd, your average primary voter likely has not even heard of this stuff. Well, the poll seemed to prove that reading a line from the peace, quote, only thirty nine percent so that they have heard a lot or some about the complaining over the NC's rules for qualifying for the debates while sixty one percent. Haven't heard much about it? Or anything at all? And quote and by the way, that specific number is based on people who said they plan to vote in the democratic primaries. And the margin of error is plus or minus three point five percentage points. Okay. And one more quote the demonstrates where normal voters are on this debate fairness stuff today, quote when asked if they approve of the job, the DNC is doing and running the debates a slim plurality of thirty three percent say they don't know or offer. No opinion roughly and other third thirty two percent. Leave. The DNC has been running the primary debate process somewhat fairly the largest group of voters to offer an opinion all told fifty four percent majority, gave the DNC positive marks saying, they're doing either a very or somewhat fair. Job of wrangling. The two dozen candidates running with just thirteen percent. Saying the party is doing a somewhat or very unfair..

"He writes the morning score for anybody likes a deep dive into all the pro campaigns out there, I go to political dot com, sign up in the Senate right to you. So Zach thank you for joining us. Sir was what twenty plus candidates. Some people are going to be very, very disappointed. It's almost like a political musical chairs at this point. So basically they're capping the two stages across both nights at twenty candidates. Candidates qualify for either night, getting sixty five thousand donors or getting one percent three polls. And then from there, they're gonna evenly and randomly divide the top candidates among the unites that's candidate polling above two percent, and the bottom kit candidate candidate Colin below two percent evenly divided unites. So it doesn't matter how how large donations are. It's the number of donations correct. Correct. Yeah. So a single dollar from, you know, your average Joe in, you know, regular city council, the same as maxed out donation from hedge fund four qualified debate, only the same thing, it still seems like a logistical nightmare for Tom pres-. You know, who's, who's the most likely named candidate name. We'd recognize to be left out at this point. Yeah. What the DNC is not in a particularly spot is there's so many candidates is twenty four candidates running twenty made the same so far. The two big names that are in danger right now, Representative Seth Moulton from Massachusetts. He will almost assuredly not make the debate stage. He's nowhere. Close to eat it threshold. We have until Wednesday. Qualify even publicly said, I'm not gonna make it. I'm not going to be in out of debate. The other one Steve Bullock governor Montano. The only statewide official elected to a red state wanting running this year. He he's on the barrier right now. He needs to get one more poll with one percent. And, you know, the question is can he do that in the next five days, basically? And why do they shut it down in five days? They started out at five eight at two weeks before the debate just have some time to calculate. And also sign the stage hits, it's random candidates wanted to know whether up again, so you can't really want it until the day before the before the debate you need to get candidate sometimes for payer knowing who their on stage with back to that, little loophole in my mind where it doesn't matter the size, you don't donation is the number governor Montana, even a democrat. I would say, look, my red state friends, if you want Montana, even to be on the stage, I appeal to you to give me five dollars, just, just give me five. No. Gimme one dollar fine Kimmy one dollar. And I think that might put him over the threshold, it's tough. There's a lot of candidates who actually haven't hit the Dr special get on one or the other and act. This point actually hitting the donor threshold is not enough. The debates prioriti- candidates who hit the threshold and twenty candidate ODI hit Poland. So there's really no shot to get through the donation the best way you can secure your spot. Get the polling threshold and the donation threshold thirteen candidates have done that so far, there spot the locked up that remaining seven candidates, they're gonna really be influx until Wednesday until we know exactly what qualify. And just to clarify Zach, there's not gonna be a big table and a little table this time around the randomly selected. So you could get, you know, Biden one night and Harris the next night. The not gonna put the leaders in the same same stage necessarily, right? The top tier candidate candidate polling above two percent, which is kind of a low bar, but that's only nine of the candidate poll about two percent. Those will be evenly and randomly divided. So Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden could end up on the same night or they could end up an opt at night. He's going to be random Zach. Montelera writes for politico dot com to sign up for the morning score. It's terrific newsletter. You can get I get my hime. Oh, box every morning previously with the national journal and George Watson university grant a native New Yorker, Joe Biden seems to have done a big one, eighty on the Hyde amendment as pew. Purely political calculation, or is this, a true change of heart, I guess that's nobody really knows that answer. What do you think? Yeah, it was can't read into Joe Biden part. But let's just say that he was out of the mainstream of the Democratic Party by saying, he would support the Hyde amendment. The height of images reple- prevent subtle funding for abortion, basically every democrat has said I don't support this amendment, and I would actively try to get this amendment stripped from the law, you know, it comes up in appropriation becomes up random Bill so members of congress have voted at larger packages, but basically across the board, Democrats, don't support it. And when he said publicly when it campaigns I probably, hey, you still support the Hyde amendment. He was just whip apart both by twenty twenty you know, opponents basically everyone could veiled or not. Particularly veiled shot at him for saying that and powerful. Democratic groups who said this is not in step up democratic believe now but he doesn't have to fight his way through this pack. He's the, he's the leader at this point. I would think if you wanna take back, what's left of conservative Democrats, though. Let's say in Michigan. Let's say in Wisconsin. Let's say in Pennsylvania. When you want appeal to the gray to the moderates in America's saying, look, we don't want federal funding for abortion. We believe in parental notification. We believe in the twenty two or twenty four week viability. I mean, that seems like a pretty good place for joy, Joe Biden Doron. Why is he? So fearful. What could this way? Right. Joe Biden is been leading all the polls, Joe Biden, who's been at thirty percents somewhere around there that percent of the democratic field. It's supporting candidate does that mean they don't like Joe Biden. No, absolutely not Joe Biden is still incredibly popular among all walks of Democrats, basis, like, but, you know, to win this primary, you need to have you need to build a broader coalition of support even the front running candidates still have a lot of democratic quarters, not backing him. So, you know, you have to get to the democratic primary, first before you can run the general election, basically. She's going to pivot back after if he if he has any hope of taking back, you know, people that voted for Trump because they wanted to burn the place down or be. They just thought Hillary Clinton's too far left. He's screwing the pooch here. Don't you think well within it he got to make it through the primary that everyone's subjective? And it's really a clash in this primary of what vision Democratic Party wins out. Joe Biden broadly is still a big tent democrat. He frequently says, we've put bipartisanship in DC that I can work with the Republicans elect me. I can work with the Republican democrat Bernie Sanders Elizabeth Warren to accent. Don't share that view. So it's really figuring out who get through the democratic primary. I what direction to the democratic primary want to go before you can really start thinking about the general election Zach house. How are things looking in Iowa on the democratic side of the world right now, basically, every democratic candidate with just a couple of exceptions are heading out to Iowa for their big weekend. Nanny, I all democratic hall of fame and induction. Some sort of ceremony, and it's really probably the biggest gathering of candidates in Iowa anything time, I think it's something like nineteen of twenty four candidates will be their big weekend. Also, coincidentally, the big poll coming out tomorrow from CNN in Iowa that your show is leading the pack and. Iowa. My son who goes to school out Nile college. He says you can't you can't turn a corner without seeing a Senator Harris billboards. She's put a lot of money in Iowa. Ready? Yeah. Senator Harris has also committed to building a big staff, at the store in the divine registered, which is the preeminent paper in Iowa really that I think it's five stack on the ground. You know, she really building up really putting a lot of. Faith in Iowa. She's not the only candidate Elizabeth Warren has a big stack there, too. You know, Cory booker's gotta be inside stack and a lot of candidates, putting a lot of their hopes on Isla many candidate in the rate, even if we have to field time people actually start voting and you know what eight months, I still a lot of candidates. So losing Iowa won't kill any individual campaign, probably. But it'd be a rocket to start off what people are actually voting which, again long way away. Oh, one other little tidbit that caught from your morning score political dot com today is that the Democrats are definitely gunning for a Devin Nunes out in California. Yes. Yeah, it's gonna be a tough tough slots democrat Democrats. It's stored here in two thousand eighteen really can't overstate that it was almost on par with the Republican takeover of the congress. You know, a couple years ago, Democrats swept up, they split you know, dozens and dozens and seat avenue net still one and the guy who ran against avenue news anchor Jan in two thousand eighteen phenomenal. Fundraiser, he may have been in the top five, and he's still walk. Tuck to traditionally Republican seat. It's a seat that you would not expect to be on the board. If not for the fact that Devin Nunes is just viable by Democrats nationally, which, you know, superchargers whoever's counting him. But it it's tough it's really tough for any democrat to, to knock out Devin Nunes, especially they couldn't do it in two thousand eighteen ten as a native New Yorker. Did you see the little blurb that both Republicans and Democrats of your home state, New York are definitely against Tom Brady? Filing for the trademark. Tom terrific WI with an I an Emec fan, not just a New Yorker. Tom terrific, Tom eater. Tom terrific will always be either though, bipartisanship in New York go talk about baseball that end up there. Zaka montelera. Thank you much for your time on this Friday after heavy terrific, weekend, sir you too. Tariff deadline. Nears news.

I on MSNBC and then in July on CNN and today, we learned that the DNC will make it more difficult for some of the two dozen candidates to make the stage when ABC is hosting the third round of debates in September. Leroy has the story for political earlier today. He explained this development, the changes here that the Democratic National Committee announced the requirements for people to qualify for the third and the fourth round of debate, and it's functional double enough. What people have to do any first route debates for the person a second round antedates needed one percent in three qualified pol- pole with the DNC counted. And he got sixty five thousand dollars or sixty five thousand dollars father now in the third and the fourth debates the later debate later on in the fall candidates will have two percent in four qualified pools of going from one percent. Two percent. One hundred thirty thousand dollars double the amount of donors. And now they teach you pick both. He early debates in June and July the only hit one with more than twenty candidates now in the race. Could this be the first phase of the filtering process before we get to the primaries and caucuses? Oh, absolutely ended the first round of debate and June and July, don't not candidate out, this certainly will right now it only if the debate held today, which of course, they're not. We the whole summer of campaigning ago only be about eight candidate who qualify. The later debate, the more strict qualification thirty democratic field could fairly comfortably say that they think they could be on the stage come you know, I'm the fall right now. There's plenty of the stomach to go visiting a lot of candidates. Did he find that donor number that one hundred thirty thousand donors beat up particular challenge for a lot of people of plenty of candidates? And haven't even half that Marquette and pull them to two percent doesn't sound like a high bar to path. It's not really a high bar fairly modest number two hit. But many, many do they have not hit two percents for national poll and four pole in the early states so that they don't make the debate stage. You know, some candidate will call a quick service. Not everybody will be like out for me. What are the lessons from two thousand sixteen in a very crowded, Republican primary? And how is the DNC applying those lessons in twenty twenty? The big thing that the being learned from the Republicans think decided they did not want a quote unquote. Kitty table debate. The debate earlier in two thousand sixteen where we been, particularly low polling candidates on the stage alone by themselves separated out from the high polling candidate Poland, the front runner is the people pull in about the threshold Democrats. You're mixing all these candidates together so you could very wealthy. You candidate Jill Biden been leading every single poll that is seen, especially since he announced bending right next door candidate done one or two, in a couple of polls, John Delaney. Former congressman from Maryland. One percent before poll. John Delaney, and Joe Biden could be standing right next to each other. These debates canyon is this process and folds in the fall as you're indicating today. This is going to change. Yeah. There's still plenty of time to go. You're putting us lock their stock didn't know if I was Joe Biden, if I was Kamala Harris, if I would even the judge I feel pretty confident that I'm going to be on the debate stage. It shows candidates who could right on the fringes, Castro someone like Kirsten gillibrand, Jay Inslee who you know, the summer they'll have to step up and maybe change some strategies. So they can hit full that donor threshold that hundred and thirty thousand dollars threshold, which is nothing between depakote it good chunk of donors, or, you know, somehow boosted polling numbers, the big be on the ground, more often in early states or what have you things will have to change some candidate, if they want to stage later on the headline at politico dot com.

"There's no second chance don't back down in the face of the bully confront him take him on. As president, I will take on the wealthy. I will take on the big corporations, I will not rest until this government served forty people as mayor of the largest city in America. I've done just that. For president guy, Donald Trump must be stopped. I've beaten in before and I will do it again. On building Blasios. I'm running for president because it's time we put working people verse. And yet the New York Post writing the following he's late again, after nearly a half a year of hemming in hiring. Mayor Bill de Blasios today entering the twenty twenty presidential race becoming the latest democrat to join the jam-packed field. The termed out politician known for his habitual tardiness finally deciding to run after five months of toying with a White House bid, you can read, more details at NY post dot com. This morning, a question on ABC's. Good Morning America from co host, George Stephanopoulos. There's a poll about a month ago, Quinnipiac poll showed seventy six percent of New York voters, seventy three percent of New York. Democrats say you should run, so which of the rest of the country think, when so many of your fellow New Yorker saying, don't run. You know, I got elected mayor by seventy three percent of vote originally, reelected with sixty seven percent vote, I think you'd agree that the poll that actually matters is the election. So New Yorkers have twice said that they wanted me to lead them, and I think about Polian general, it's not where you start. It's where you end. So in the courses campaign, we're going to talk about what working people need, and how government should be on their side, right now, the federal government is not on the side of working people, and that's because Donald Trump is playing a big con on America. I call him conduct on every New Yorker knows he's a con artist. We've know his tricks, we know his playbook, I know how to take them on. I've been watching him for decades. He's trying to convince working Americans on their side. It's been a live from day one. So I believe I'll be able to show the kinds of things we have done. Here are what's needed all over this country. So working people can live better with more in the announcement earlier today by New York. Mayor Bill de Blasio. We're joined on the phone with Zach Montelera. He is a Long Island native, and let me begin with this question. Why is he running? Well, I guess the better question is why not running? Right. You know, there's so many candidates in the field, plenty three or twenty four how much count certain fringe candidates and you know it's the way to raise his national profile without taking too many risks is not giving up to do this. He's, you know, we'll have a chance to travel to Iowa and you have to fight this message and, you know, he has a pretty decent shot of getting on the early democratic debate getting in front of a national audience. We have to talk about what he wants to talk about your from New York, and the early reviews basically New Yorker saying, we don't want you to run. Why is that? Oh, yeah. Bill de Blasio has quite of a strange record in New York that he has a lot of progressive policies that he was quick, though, that he has had universal pre pre-k raising the minimum wage, but he's just not a popular man in New York City outside of these announcing today on good Morning America. There was protesters from the police union which does not get along with him. People have just begging him not for long, those at Quinnipiac poll, a couple of months ago that there's something like seventy percent of the residents don't want him to rod, you know, people on the ground people have been asking people, why don't you want to rod the combination of you know why should he run? And, you know, we want him in our city taking care of all the problems at New York City has itself. You know it's not easy running near city city is bigger than most of the states in America. So it's not a part time job on New York City, we're talking with Zach Montelera, politico, and normally the question is, does the candidate have a path to the nomination, but I'm gonna take a different track in ask you. Does he have a path to break out? Well, I think it all probably Hindus leak in the early days on those first couple of debates, right? We have a debate coming up at the end of June, and build of Blasios looks poised to make it up on the debate stage is twenty four candidates right now, who are writing twenty we'll make it Bill Wasi will likely be one of those twenty up on one on the debate stage. That would be the moment to watch is handle Blasios, stand out from the crowd Oiseaux talk about his progressive record that he has. He has his fairly often a lot of progressive, volunteer. City chance to talk about that, you know, crazy things have happened. Right. We last like all these, you know, Republican candidate got a shot in twenty twelve and twenty sixteen as time of hurricane at the time, you know, that Rick Santorum all these folks led the polls for presidential primaries at some point or another in the past couple of cycles. So, you know, it's possible anything's possible. We will look for your reporting online at politico dot com. Thanks for being with us. I see..

"Belt. Congressman Tim Ryan announcing campaign for president and join his phone is that Monteiro who is reading about his candidacy. What's his path? Why is he getting in this race? I think the better question is probably why not get in. There's so many people in this field that democratic politicians feel such a low barrier to entry, you know, if they wanna get their idea, at least national prominence and national play they might run for president this show for out the actual even Isla caucuses candidates can enter now any traction. And if they don't they drop out they have nothing collusion if they do. Well, they're running for president. So you know, it's such a low barrier entry I first coming up. So soon you might have run if you think you have something, but really be able to participate in the debates will have raised enough money and name recognition to put him on the debate stage. That'd be a little bit tough. We're couple months in the first debate. And he needs to get sixty five thousand donors you need to get one percent from. Qualified. You know with its harder than you get sixty five thousand donors relatively low threshold. But this candidates have been in the race where these amount of time not yet hit that threshold. I would guess that congress mines best shots onto the base state would be three polls. It's one percent is not an extraordinary number of being a national poll. Early states that if you really buckle down and get, you know, get your early states, and you just hope that enough you're out in the field full. You know, you have shot. The better question is how many people would be on the stage. If we hit twenty candidates on the stage, the cutoff twenty candidates debates is who have been eliminated. I, you know, somebody who doesn't two thousand threshold only polling one maybe two percent is in danger. I'm getting off the stage if there's twenty people qualified he has been front and center with the closing of the GM plant in his congressional district just outside of Youngstown, Ohio. It seems to me that that's going to be the framework the basis of his candidacy of his announcement. Yeah. You know, when he launched he said that none of them are talking about the middle of the country not talking about room Erica. And what you know. These voters are looking for these odors need to hear congressman Ryan hoping to highlight a another bid. Western boys is not too many westerners in the race and talk about what they care about. And maybe pick up the mantle of Ohio, Ohio Senator Sherrod Brown pass them run. But he's. That he was talking about when he was considering running the of work. So I try to pick up that mantle. And there are other names still being talked about Senator Michael Bennet who announced that he is battling prostate cancer. But if he is successful with his treatment he will run for president. Congressman Seth Moulton Massachusetts says he's thinking about running and Stacey Abrams who ran for governor of Georgia says she too is thinking about a possible candidacy, so I guess the more the merrier. Yeah. I mean, not even of them thinking about running congressman Eric thinking run from Carrie mccullogh thinking about a run, you know, feels that had a lot of candidates in the race. And we do I think we're up to fifteen may do candidate, you know, about that depending on how you want to describe a major candidate. But still room, you know, five or six more people to get in. It's kind of remarkable. And it really goes to show. There's no clear runaway Victor at this point in the race for the Joe Biden. Also, my new not in the race. And Senator Bernie Sanders been combined about fifty percent. But these the other fifty percent up for grabs, and it leaves Democrats who think that they can elbow in and find two or three percent and try to catch fire. More details at politico dot com.
