Republican senators kelly leffler. David purdue have of course been on the campaign trail much like warnock in ossoff purdue a former. Ceo of dollar general is an incumbent in the cousin of former georgia governor kelley leffler co owner of the atlanta dream. Wnba team and one of the richest politicians on capitol hill according to forbes was appointed governor. Brian kemp last december. We reached out to both purdue and leffler as well as her opponent raphael warnock. But we're not able to secure interviews for this podcast as with the democratic events are producers. Were on site for the republican campaign events as well. I i have one question for you. Are you gotta georgia's state. We're here with her. Do investor all view. This is an important night in america. Have to stop the radical for changing america. They get what they wanted to get total control we ought of our inalienable rights. And if we don't win this election we're gonna lose our second amendment firewall to socialism because the bigger knows more about how one year wine is wrong. It's wrong it's against human nature making america. Great and georgia. It's in your hands. We'll save the senate save georgia and we'll save two of our producers on this show julia beverly jamie. Albright spent a lot of time over the past few weeks attending and recording campaign events for the senate runoffs because all eyes are on the state these events hosted by a wide range of people from the candidates themselves to killer mike and president donald trump. however some of these events even once julia and jamie got on the press lists were harder to cover the others. Here's julia so i come from the entertainment world and twenty twenty has really been my first time. Getting involved with a political campaign on the press was for the biden transition team. I get dozens of updates from them every day and warnock and the ossoff campaign sends out daily updates with their itenerary upcoming events. I guess i assume that's how all the political campaigns operate this is. Jamie albright was definitely much more difficult to find the events for leffler purdue signed up for the email list and didn't get any emails actually check my spam at one point. Almost like there was a list. We weren't on or something. In order to get information about the event we arrived at the event. For hungary there was music playing Because of the pandemic there wasn't going to be a sit down meal on which a lot of the people were disappointed to hear that but people pulled up their cars and ossoff and warnock reloading their cars with boxes full of food on the republican side. The senate campaigns sort of kicked off when trump rally in valdosta and brought out leffler and purdue but the primary focus of trump's rally was always trump georgia. I wanted to stay on presidential. But i gotta get to these two because there but listen to this. These are the facts. I got more votes than any sitting president than history. Eleven million more votes than we got in six a lot of animosity toward the media at their events. Not to the point. Where i felt like i was in danger necessarily but there's definitely the assumption that anyone with a camera is fake news. Traffic so the event incoming was for leffler in purdue. When i arrived. I saw a confederate flag on the back of a pickup truck. So i felt unwelcomed from the beginning as a black woman at this rally. As i walked up immediately noticed that there is a lack of diversity and then a black deputy approached me and asked me if i had security because he said there had been some incidents at these events and i do think he approached me because i was one of four black people at this event and we were all working there so i definitely did feel like i stood out and that was just an interesting experience and much different than at warnock an autho. The purdue leffler campaigns did not seem too concerned about kobe precautions. The events i attended were outdoors but left also did a lot of speaking engagements at smaller indoor venues with small crowds. I was wearing an n ninety five mask at the first gop. Then i went to and people seemed skeptical. End to talk to me. At the next event. I wore an american flag mask and almost immediately walking up to the event i saw man with a trump flag and he kind of pause and made eye contact with me and gave me a thumbs up. Jamie and julia also spoke with voters at gop events and so-called stop the steel rallies hearing what gop voters in georgia are concerned about. And how they're feeling about the senate runoff elections. I feel like it's really important that we stopped the steel. We expose the fraud that we support our president and we support our united states. Are you better off than you were. Four years ago there's blatant stealing other buffoonery going on especially with camp and the secretary stated it's it's ridiculous what's going. They're gonna find out that that they were on the take but the problem is they're getting all their information from fake media that that's the that's the problem but i know there's no way that joe biden got eighty million votes. We're giving away ballots so that people recognize a fake ballot when they went because apparently they don't in georgia chuck schumer said it.

Senator in twenty years sent me these two men and we will control. The senate changed the lives of people in georgia. casey. I know how busy you are. You've been rallying. The troops thanking people for everything. Have you had a minute just to sit back and take it in. Put your feet up relax at all. I think i'd like fourteen minutes on sunday but we got there. It's hard to believe that as we go into this. Momentous point in georgia's history. We're doing so without reverend. C t vivian. Without reverend joseph. Lowry without congressman. John lewis the to democratic candidates in the senate runoff both had special relationships with louis. Jon ossoff wrote a letter to louis as a teenager and eventually intern for the late congressman lewis and also continued to have a mentor. Men t relationship until his death. Raphael warnock is the pastor at ebenezer baptist church the spiritual home of both martin luther king junior and john lewis in july just before he eulogized lewis at ebeneezer. Warnock was interviewed by jewel for nbc. News he told her he saw his senate run as part of his spiritual stewardship. Warnock said. At the time when i consider the history of ebeneezer and the legacy of someone like john lewis when presented with this opportunity. Who am i to say no. I've got to do the best. I can to continue the work. That john lewis and so many others left for us to do. It's one thing to talk about john lewis. It's another to hear him. Speak to hear the passion in its voice. This was one of those moments from the house floor on march eighth two thousand nineteen the congressman speaking in support of voting rights and election. Reform matt speaker. You have heard me say on occasion that the right to vote is precious almost sacred dinner society. It is most powerful non-violent instrument of tool that we have in my heart or hearts. I believe we have more responsibility to restore access all of our citizens who designed to participate in democratic process. Many people protested for the right to vote. Some gave a blood other gay damn very live. You've heard me tell the story before. And you know i work is not finished. It makes me sad. It made me feel like crying. Went p for the night the right to vote. We all know that this is not a democrat a republican issue. It is an american wine. The vote is an opportunity to be on the right side a historic veterans to cast a vote. People are other people and for the people. So i asked you if not us then who if not now then win.

I'm currently living in atlanta on seventeen years old when donald trump won our teachers just made. It's like be active and we all wrote letters to donald trump about what policies he can improve how he could improve them and ever since.

You're showing both of the democrats. That were no. He won't 'cause all these democrats out a new area. All at this point cassetta starts pointing at each of the feces on this piece of paper. One by one. And i think it's worth stopping hair to explain that if kosovo war canvassing on behalf of nonprofit organization of five. Oh one c. Which she's doing here would not be legal. Nonprofits aren't supposed to make political endorsements or steer people to vote for one candidate or party over another but premise cassetta one of the benefits of doing this completely on her own as it. When she's talking to voters she can say what she wants and she does you know his faith but he's a good guy to And these guys all the risk of magaw. This here is john. He democrat rafi.

Good guy yeah and we got dame good good okay. Okay all right. Do you remember that. Kelly left lose picture like all kinds of crosses all over it this team because because you usually vote for democrats and that's what you wanna do this anymore. But the second time. I voted going to be. Some people might argue. That cassetta here is doing too much. Coaching telling janey which candidates are quote unquote good and which are bad. But it's worth bearing in mind that miss jeannie is not a typical georgia voter. She's older she's is. She relies on other people for transportation. She's harder to reach and for the democratic party is a costly voter. She cost a lot of time and resources to actually get her to the polls to know that she is in fact going to vote so many canvassers just consider her not enough of a likely voter to spend all this energy but say what you will about cassette his tactics or if he's doing too much she is actually taking the time to make sure that mystery and he does vote within a work. I'm gonna call you later. Okay by the time the could set a is done with janey literally everyone else in the group is waiting for her back by the van but she says that's just how it goes when you're doing canvassing the right way. I you know you have to give them come keeps you can make thank you. Keep information being gone. That's when i you you got make sure they know who you are making remember. And i'll see the bond that she and i was like we the france so you don't come and say i need this you don't do. You gotta have say you can't russell in a couple of weeks since we were in georgia i keep thinking about that line from miss gazeta. You can't come say. I need you for this. I need you for that. And it made me realize that. Maybe this is the problem with this whole runoff. The fact that the message coming from the whole rest of the country from both democrats and republicans from the president and the president-elect is lean you our future relies on you. It reminded me something that. Nc from the new. Georgia patrick kane said about how she doesn't want these voters to feel used georgia. Voters have the opportunity to flip the balance of power in the united states. Senate isn't about a gift to other americans voters in the states. It is a highlight and underscore. How powerful georgia voters are and why they need to show up and vote and take every opportunity to vote that they can so far in this election. It seems georgia. Voters are doing exactly that a week into early voting. The number of votes cast was on track with turnout in the general election in november. But whatever happens as a result of this runoff whatever happens in the senate whatever happens to trump and biden and the rest of the country and the world. It's worth making sure that we don't forget about what will happen to georgians here on. Tuesday ted reached out to bob. Melvin the making county commissioner. You just wanted to fact check something last minute and let him know that the story was going to be on the podcast on the next day but it turned out that since we've gone canvassing with bob something pretty major had happened. Carbolic luckily got covert. How are you feeling feel terrible. I feel terrible Yesterday i went to the cancer center for check up in my On college is like bob like you. Don't feel well. I don't you know and she was like i need you. Go get tested. Offer kobe. I don't get tested for the flu and I tested negative or the flu but positive for the code. Just like i'm just aching. all over. essay flew ten times worse to me. Yeah i'm sure as getting it right right right. How'd you make you feel i mean. Do you have any regrets about going out there or do you know. I don't have any regrets at all. Because i can't pinpoint where i picked up the kobe virus true. I can't. I can't really say that bob told ted the if anything getting sick actually made him reflect more on the issues that he's been talking to people about well canvassing. When bob realized that he was sick it was harder than it should have been for him to find a place where he could get tested. He ended up having to go somewhere in another county about twenty miles away more than ever. It's clear to him that he and his community don't have the medical resources that they deserve and he's still holding out. Hope that whoever wins two of these most expensive senate races in american history that they could potentially change that it really drives home. The message that the rural community is that a disadvantage in the more that i see everybody's getting vaccines and you know where they're going to understand this on the frontline workers first and then they're trickle down but what about the rural communities. You know when you're in a big city maybe eight nine hospitals and we don't have hospital in my county will have a hospital in the county some of the numbers that i've been watching cnn. It's like they'll spent almost five hundred twenty something million dollars on this election. You know what we can do with five hundred twenty seven million dollars.

"Clinton and democrats think they have a chance to flip it again. Georgia too early to call one more time. With georgia public broadcasting's political reporter steven fowler. Biggest surprise of this november election was how smooth things went in georgia. There were some signs that things. We're going to be better. You had a record number of absentee ballots requested and people returning them. You had people flooding early. Voting and the counties were all preparing for up to eighty percent turnout six million or so votes and they had more staffing and they had more polling places than they had more machines and more training georgia's still has a republican secretary of state but he is a night and day difference from how brian kemp ran that office. Brad reference burger is still a hard right republican. But he's an engineer who is obsessed with the process which is why you see him. Do things like sand six point. Nine million people absentee ballot applications and he's enacted a lot of policies. That if you took away a party label would be relatively progressive. You could make the argument that the actions that the republican secretary of state took in this election cycle to make it easier for people to vote ended up ensuring that democrats won the white house because traditionally groups of people that you saw wait in longer lines and have less of an access to the polls. You could make an argument that for the first time georgia voted like its population is that the results were truly reflective of the larger and more granular population of the state because of the actions taken.

They live in one the biggest homes in atlanta but people south georgia north georgia had never heard of kelly leffler even though she ran and wnba team leffler name suddenly increased recognition when she got appointed but also immediately. She started getting in hot water with her response to social justice movements her own. Wnba team pushed back really hard against her comments. Denouncing black lives matter and then she very quickly also became one of the first senators who appeared to make stock trades or her stocks were traded. She has somebody who does it for her right. After the pandemic appeared and private meetings were held in which she learned things that could have benefited her her portfolio. No charges were ultimately brought by the justice department that her name quickly became associated with being anti black lives matter. And also like sketchy stock stuff. Purdue also got brought into both of those to some degree. But i think his name is less tarnished than hers at this point among most georgians. He's more likely to get knee-jerk support leffler.

And on this upcoming mini season i talked to some of the brave brazen and us women from my home state of georgia where two senate seats held by. Republican incumbents are being challenged and the power of the legislature is in the balance. This is not typical. This is the path to getting some decent healthcare. This is the path to getting the pandemic addressed in georgia. These elections are life and death. State senator nan orrock as one of the many women. Getting out the vote in every corner of the state and while everyone's talking about how crucial these georgia runoffs are the are still so many pervasive misconceptions as seventh generation georgian. I really wanna show the georgia that i know filled with incredible builders and dreamers like criminal justice advocate joseph duffy rice there so much amazing stuff happening in georgia and we get such a bad rap. There's sort of like. Let's just let the south go mindset. That really isn't giving it enough credit to the people working really hard here every day. I'll also get a chance to speak with the woman responsible for getting more than ten thousand absentee ballots to people in jail.

"The US. Senate. For decades is a good candidate. We last heard of him when he lost a special election in a district that he might not lived in to what's You. Know. Didn't. Know, he lives in Georgia. So I'm going to be really candid with you. Thank you bill. For a long time I wasn't clear on what the of appeal was. I just didn't quite understand why were. So taken by him when he ran his special election for that congressional seat. Of course, he became a national darling of the Democrats because they really wanted to win after trump had won the presidential election. They really wanted to win that at six district special election, which is what he ran in, and of course, he raised tens of millions of dollars, and in those days I was sort of unclear about him. I have to say that I watched him in a debate this past week at I was surprised at he was really substantive. He really took it to purdue very directly I mean he It this the debate did not appear to be David Perdue former corporate fight fortune five, hundred executives. Selfish. Ord knowing how to deal with young newcomer like Esau I saw in fact gave him a really hard time and I came away much more impressed with US author I had been previously. He was quite good in the national media. There's there's always a bias towards change and so Georgia as a state in the deep south you know relatively deep South I went to college there some of it's not not. Deep but it's been been Republican Republicans win statewide office has been since Jimmy Carter used a southern strategy to actually be Gerald Ford. But what are the chances of the state turning blue? When's the last time? Democrats had any real success statewide and a Lotta Times? I do find that the national coverage is always betting on the com- as opposed to actually chronicling what has happened in the recent past. I think that's a good point. I mean George has been turning its jour-jour turning purple for the last fifteen year I mean that's what Democrats would have you believe in it just doesn't happen. All right. So just a brief history on that the last time, a Democratic presidential candidate one Georgia was nineteen ninety-two when Bill Clinton did and there were circumstances that led to that. That he did not repeated ninety, six, ninety, six in his reelection campaign Clinton Lost Georgia. That's the last time a Democrat has won state has won presidential contest in Georgia and the state turned completely red in two thousand two and beyond when the last Democratic governor of Georgia. Roy. Barnes. What lost his reelection to Sonny Perdue of course, now, the secretary of Agriculture in the trump administration and from that time on really two thousand, two on the state has been controlled entirely by Republicans Republicans occupy every one of the constitutional officers Labor Commissioner Secretary of State, all of those offices. Lieutenant Governor and they have the majority in both the House and Senate a dramatic switch from the late Nineteen Ninety S. So more questions. The presidential race is close and as I was looking at some of the cross tabs, a couple interesting things jump out the number of African. American registrants has gone up but it does seem that Joe Biden isn't polling as well among non white voters, which includes of course, Hispanic voters as Hillary Clinton did. So what where might some of the vote or interesting wrinkles of where each candidate presidential candidate might get their vote come from where? What are you looking at? Well I think you. I think you're right. You've really looked at that in exactly the correct way I think Biden will make inroads with white suburban. Voters there's no question about that. At this point, if you look at cross tabs of drill down to to geography as well as gender but it, you know I think the New York, Times Sienna poll I don't have it in front of me right now I was a little surprised to see that I think. Biden's support among African Americans in general within the mid eighties I believe people can check that for sure. Not Quite as high as you'd expect it to be, and there were still ten percent according to Sienna of African American voters who claim to be undecided. The real issue for black voters here's going to be a what a black men do. You know the the trump campaign has really worked hard to especially attract African American men to their side. And the Biden people have been trying their best to to make sure they get over into their camp. There's an ad campaign that has played in Georgia, which has a number of black men sitting in a barbershop. Talk about the election there it's a vitamin abidance spot and widen would be and it's interesting. One of the things that said one of those finds is what are the one of the guys in the barbershop says, well, you know our women are all voting for Joe Biden and the other ones who well maybe it's time we got behind too. So it's been. An interesting situation and you know twice now trump is come here to rally black voters and a any and. He's also got Donald Trump junior having come in here as recently as this past. Friday. To, speak to black voters so they're making an effort at. We'll see how that goes to my last question. Is this a lot of states that are purple and you know George hasn't gotten there yet, but it's threatening to become purple. The purple means is that most of the politics are somewhat moderate somewhat in the middle, it does seem that Georgia is the different kind of average which could be it's an average because you're taking into pretty far. Extremes are the politics of Georgia as extreme as they seem from the outside looking at a warnock versus collins slash. Leffler dynamic or is it more of a moderate state? Is it actually more of a state where you know reasonable centrism has a lot of sway? Well, I mean, let me I have two answers for that. Number one we will find out just how the extremes operated in Georgia on Emilio sometime after November Third Donald Trump wins the state again I guess you could probably say that, yes, this state is still terribly divided along partisan lines of is obviously trump's not gonna win Democratic support in his campaign here but but here's another aspect to bet is pretty interesting I. Think. So when it comes to national politics, the divide is is great here. There are battle lines drawn but if you dip down into the Georgia, state legislature. You will see that divide in a different way the state. Senate here is a very conservative body that introduces legislation that you know a lot of So he'll engineering legislation, for example, religious liberty bills that SORTA thing you've got a house though which may be controlled by Republicans, but you've got a Republican speaker of the House who has shown over and over yet, and that his effort is going to be too blunt to the most extreme measures social engineering should measure particularly that come to him from the Senate. So I think that's fascinating I. Think the legislature is a place especially on the house side where we see. that. There is more of a moderate..

I think Tuesday is a signal for both the country and the party's. Things that we might have to expect come November. For one. If elected officials do not proactively prepare. For a election that could be up ended by virus concerns. We might have lines like we saw on Tuesday. If, they're not prepared to count thousands and thousands of absentee in mail in ballots in ways that are unprecedented and presidential history. We might not get results from key states on election night. And even more so about the type of messages that politicians are giving to the public right now. If people don't feel as if going to the ballot box in voting is a process that is equitable and fair to them. It is going to be harder for particularly democratic politicians to tell their base. This is where you should put your energy. This is how you make change. What we saw on Tuesday. Was Not an encouraging scene..

"Hey Good Morning Branch Day. He'll be back on Monday. Today is a very big day in Georgia the day so many of us have been dreaming about when we go freely to wherever we want to go but many. Americans are little unsure. This is the right time. Georgia's reopening parts of its state today Governor Brian. Kemp says he's got to bolster the economy. The entities which I'm reopened or not reopening as business as usual so as today Gyms Herron Nail Salons Tattoo Parlors and bowling alleys and Georgia can reopen and next week restaurants will be able to serve customers in their dining rooms and movie theaters will be allowed to open. Would I do that? No I keep a little longer. I want to protect people's lives. Georgia had over twenty one thousand Kovic nineteen cases and close to a thousand people have died. Abc Stevo soon. Saami is in Georgia and Steve. You've got to give a reality check here. How much of Georgia is really? GonNa be reopening. Today that's a really good question because it depends on who you ask certainly cannot in conscience say that I agree with his order and I will continue to use my voice as mayor of Atlanta to ask people to continue to stay home if you ask residents and business owners in the liberal cities and counties near where I live quickly made the decision you know for our staff and our community our customers that the right decision would be not open. Most of the restaurants aren't opening for dining at the closest. Anybody Beats. Your Group is eleven feet but outside of the city the owner of the Gold Cup Bowling Center. In Warner Robins Georgia tells us he's able to open one of his locations safely. You're going to see a few more restaurants gyms even bowling alleys opening. I never feel comfortable if anything happens to any of my clients it's now somewhat politically incorrect for many businesses in the Metro area to open. But at the same time you know you understand the reasons for some of the businesses that are opening doing so I mean our businesses down by five percents And it's just not sustainable. They've been out of work for weeks. Their employees haven't been paid. Some people are worried legitimately about losing their businesses. You Know Steve. The one thing that really stands out here it's gyms hair nail salons tattoo parlors bowling alleys eventual a restaurants and movie theaters. These are where you have to be close to other people that typically you're very close to them once the rationale for these locations. Not other shops where you don't have to be close to another person but why these well I think. The real reasoning is bigger than Just sort of the of the service industry we're talking about a lot of businesses and all of those businesses is account for a good number people who are signing up for the unemployment rolls. We're still filing employment on behalf of every single one of our employees and that is you know a huge burden for the governor and for the state to bear at this point to pay all of this unemployment for all of these. The service workers people like you. Who can't afford it right now right. You can't afford it as much as it seems that you know. We're talking about safety precautions and trying to get people back to work safely at the root the economic fear and tragedy. That's happening here. Is really what many people would say is pushing the state and the governor to sort of get things going again and so the owners have to decide. Are they going to reopen? Are THEY NOT. But what about customers? If there's a restaurant open or a gym open Water Bay sang are they going to go to these places? Well we were at a hair salon where they told us that the minute that the governor started talking about opening the state back up their phones started ringing with appointments and they are now booked three weeks out. Yeah so there is a high demand to get your hair cut in Georgia and I don't think that they're gonNA have any any trouble getting customers. Same with the restaurants in our plan of reopening extreme table spacing Dividers what some of these restaurants are talking about. Doing is having fewer seats in their restaurants which just ensures that there's going to be more demand So you know I think for people who are concerned and who want to stay home and who you know feel that they're helping the situation by doing so they will do so but I absolutely feel these businesses. That are open won't have won't have any problem at all with that sad who are people in. Georgia taking their guidance. From if you're looking at the numbers you see nearly a thousand dead in Georgia. Forty one hundred have been in hospitals. There's a real worry among some that this could mean more people dying on one side. You've got governor camp on the other side. The mayors including the mayor of Atlanta and even president trump saying this is too soon to be reopening places like this. You've got two different messages going out. I think people taking guidance from who is giving them sort of the guidance that they WanNa hear. We have more people moving around. We're probably going to have a our case's continue to go up no matter what the governor says. I don't think that he is unaware off the health concerns and the and the crisis that that's happening and the risk and if all of a sudden there is a sudden spike in cases a spike in deaths I could see this governor choosing to close things back up again and in that way Georgia would be a little bit of a task case for everybody else to see how it goes and if the numbers go up or down. Abc Steve Olson. Saami in. Atlanta's Steve. Good talking to you take.
