"I've always. I've always really liked self storage and see how fast i mean. It seemed pretty fast to me when you said you really started getting into it about two thousand fifteen. Is that right now. You've grown over the last five and a half years to wear at. That's that's impressive. Yeah the quit so going back to that kind of understanding this. You said you started to go to the mid west. How many states are y'all in currently about ten states. We got a bunch of deals in the florida. Panhandle carolina colorado of course ohio michigan illinois wisconsin. So we generally like the mid west in the southeast quite a bit. We of course like the mountain west.

Are these Something that broker brings you chop off market or combination. We've i've done a little bit of both. We did a. We applied some of our single family marketing practices to self storage acquisitions and we played about ten million off of a direct mail campaign. It was a pretty basic letter to saying. Hey we're not brokers were buyers we love to give an offer on your facility and the rest of our acquisitions have been just through our broker network. I hate using the term off market because often an off market deal maybe not a good deal but we've gotten a few we believe really good off. Market deals just through broker relationships for the listed We did a twenty million dollar. Acquisition in michigan and that portfolio was not listed. We got through a broker contact in gave him a price that made sense for the sellers and enclosed so most of us broker networking but a little bit of direct to seller initiative. As well

So i became a nutritionist and then i went further into medicine and i did my first rotation and integrative medicine with dr jonathan right in one thousand nine hundred seventy seven and he's not later became known as the father of bio identical hormones so in that rotation he said hormones are foundational. This was in my very early. Training hormones are foundational. They run everything. They're not just about sexy things they're not just about reproductive things. They run our epigenetics. They run our immune system. They run our kidneys. They run our brain. Functioned the volume of our hippie campus. Where memories live and cognition is bright or not and so. I got respect early on for hormones in the next year after i did his rotation. He opened up his meridian valley laboratory.

"A case in that that body and we should say that bradwell continues to sort of be seen as a pioneer. Even though she doesn't actually ever argue a case in the court Near the end of her life the illinois supreme court in the us supreme court Admit her to be able to practice. Law she wasn't able to do what she Died of cancer. Just a few years later But you know in more recent times in one thousand nine hundred four. She was inducted into the national women's hall of fame. So there is this sense that even though she was never able to have that profession that she originally desire to have that she had begun the process of opening these stores That women would be able to step through like belva. Lockwood did and it makes you think a lot about trailblazers who often don't necessarily get to achieve the that. They were fighting for often. Because the fight is so long and so hard Often the trailblazers are the ones who then. Yeah as you say an open the door for others and don't necessarily get the the thing themselves. Yeah you don't always get there but you know it's it's But that's not the point. Maybe i'm feeling like this to 'cause yesterday india my black woman three class talked about shirley chisolm and her whole thing was like. This is not about me becoming the president. This is about me making it possible for people to think about becoming the president so the next person will have an easier opportunity. And that's kind of the key representation. Right is sometimes. It's not about necessarily getting the spot. It's about making the vision possible. Yes which is a really powerful thing. Yeah equally powerful. Yeah okay. let's leave that story there because we want to take a few minutes at the end here to talk about another big thing that happened on this day so this is almost a two for one or a one point five for one And that is on this day in two thousand ten was the day that barack obama signed the affordable care act. Aca into law Nikki you of course are the obama era. Historian here I'm sure you have many things to say about this. My memory of this is this the moment in which joe biden and his onstage and overheard telling obama this is a big effing deal he and he actually uses the word But that was a that was what counted as a bit of scandal at the time was as joe biden swearing onstage during august ceremony. But what else do you What do we need to know about this moment. You need to know that it was a big deal. What barack obama spent all of his political capital on and he knew that this was going to cost them the midterms it had already been such a contentious political battle. It had infused all of this energy into the burgeoning tea party movement. But this was the thing that he wanted to do with his power and he was willing to spend his political capital in order to get it. it was a messy messy process. It was mishandled a lot of times along the way he had worked with a lot of intransigent democrats who created a lot of problems for him including having to strip out the public option And you didn't get the goodies for a couple more years. Which made it a really difficult bill to sell And i think we could argue pretty effectively. That really failed to sell the bill It doesn't become even sort of like fifty fifty popular until twenty twelve but we should note that today obama care pretty popular and certainly these questions of political capital. How you use it how you maintain it are very front of mind And i think a lot of lessons from those first couple years are being learned by the biden administration. I mean one is yes you know. Don't build in very subtle things into your big signature legislation build very like hit you over the head kind of things like checks or things you can go out there and about but also you know. I'm really intrigued by the notion of political capital. Where even ten years ago. You know there was this notion that it was a like A non-renewable resource right. And so you had a certain amount and you exhausted it. And now i feel like there's this notion kind of by that actually going big to continue to go big because it sets norm of going big and it's not like you go big and you've used up a fixed amount of political capital and i feel like that's sort of where democrats heads are at right now. Which is just big things. Get big things. Get big things. You sort of normalize the big things and it's so i mean there's so much division you have to go bigger go home like the ability to achieve or accomplish. You know anything. Legislatively is so difficult that if you don't swing for the big things you can you can bet for. Sure you're not gonna get the small things. Yeah and we should. We should note that democrats at the time had fifty nine seats in the senate. They had an overwhelming majority in the house. And they still had to pass this thing through reconciliation So it does speak exactly to that and go bigger. Go home i think is the right like give people popular things that they really want and they will allow you to give them more things that they wind I think it's a lesson that was learned totally during the obama administration and is being applied. Now which is which is not to undersell how much of a grind it was and how much the first stimulus in two thousand nine sort of was a big grime. This felt like the second big things i mean. We're not trying to downplay the significance and the effort that it took them into the rollout of all saints crashing for sure Okay that's the end of the episode.

Hr is a big ready to that and know how are we going to function without an HR person here? Oh figure it out poorly. We're going to get it. Yeah it's going to be worse. We don't care deal with it. That doesn't happen in government no Anyway so as looking at the list of the ten highest paid public employees in California. And they're almost all in a school district of some sort because the California Teachers Association is the most powerful Union in America. And they've gotten a good deal for a whole bunch of people. You've got a bunch of people that are making three hundred four hundred thousand dollars a year in school districts That's serious money. Well it maybe. I could be convinced that you need to spend that much money to get somebody that could do that job. But I'd be pretty surprised. Well come on. There are three hundred and forty thousand people making a hundred grand. You can't find anybody for thirty percent lasser whatever. Who's competent qualified? Well we've do chronicled through the years. The incredible bloat in administration. You're usually talking about schools but are I'm sorry colleges universities Up and down. The line are much more administration heavy than they've ever been before and less frontline heavy and the problem is the unfunded pension the pensions and the pay for the active people is just incredibly high as for the reasons Jackpot but number years ago in Illinois. Got The same problem there. A NUMBER STATES. That are really up against it. The unions got the legislatures to pass these These laws establishing or changing the pension systems. They said listen. We're GONNA have the teachers for instance in the firefighters and the cops kick in X. amount of their their paycheck every year or every paycheck and then with the growth in the investments of the funds We'll have more than enough money to cover their retirement. They're very generous retirements except that those formulas they offered up. We're complete fiction. All it has to happen is seven to nine percent growth in the stock market every single year and specifically in our investments as long as that happens these These numbers work. Yeah except that. That's never been well. It hasn't been something you could rationally. Expect for many many years and you have crashes have downturns you have flat periods and the rest of it and so now those fictional numbers of mean that they're China Norma bills unthinkable retiree pension bills. Come due soon and there's no money in the till so your California could be the first to the finish line. I've been really favoring Illinois for longtime is the the first state to go broke because Illinois is fiscally. It is a a drunken sailor on a coke binge in Bangkok in terms of responsibility California by Shears. This is and union slavery slipping slave to the Union could beat Illinois finish. Is this a fair statement? A government job should never be a better deal than the private sector. Why would it be Well I'm there are special cases I suppose that No I mean a an employer. Why can't it be selling your labor? Is Selling Your Labor? What how does it get to be because it clearly is like? I understand why but why shouldn't it be right? Why if if somebody is working in again my argument is largely theoretical. But I would if somebody's working for the state you know I would want good people there and to have competitive rates. Don't you almost by default? Have to pay more than the private sector if you want to get the best people. Why because the private sector's China's hard as they can to get the best people to do. I need to have the best person to start with. But we're not even close to that territory right. There is no way that the best whatever this person does. Yeah what do you have to pay for Abusive Idiots right? Well no there should be just competition where you're not talking about. You know the hope diamond. You're talking about a commodity human beings. Unfortunately there are a lot of us and if you need a really good employees there should be competition between the public and the private sector where You know you get the best person for just use round numbers one hundred thousand dollars year. Well the second best person is going to be making ninety nine thousand nine hundred and eighty dollars. Because they're almost as resurrect and one of them went private. Private one of them went public and they're making essentially the same amount. 'cause they're like again? It's not the hope diamond. There are a lot of common people in the World. But we gotta get rid of the we we certainly have to get rid of the term public servant. You're not doing this because you're a public service auto show. You're doing this because you can hell of a lot more money than you could ever make in the private sector and you can't get fired job security. Yeah the job security. Oh my God I mean there. Are Some people actually in state and federal work who? They're not getting rich but they've traded the complete job security for maybe a little lower paycheck because not every government employee has the California Unions who owned the legislature. I think you'll get home. Does that society? If the government job is better than the private sector Oh yes substantially better. You'RE DOOMED. You cannot possibly function right. Not for very long right and the reckoning is coming in California. We'll the great political theorists would agree with you wholeheartedly that you become a society where you must beg the government because the government becomes its own biggest constituent its own most powerful lobbyist and then it's completely out of control and we're just so far down the road people have forgotten. What government is what? We're doing we band together as a little tribe here and decided we needed to teach our kids who wants to teach the kids all do it but I knew I need to get paid something because I'm not going to feed my family right. You know you start there. It doesn't need to be a I get rich. Can't get fired. This is the best job in the village situation right right. But that's which is why we have a country founded on the idea of limited government because it snowballs and they knew it and it acquires more and more power until it becomes its most important lobbyist government itself and one of the problems with the bailout of a state of California for instance aside from the fact that how incredibly unfair it is to the rest of the country is no be no reason to correct the problem. Got Us here right well as progressives themselves often state in in reality. They're saying this if you want less of something tax it if you want more of something subsidize it like you. Tax Sugary Drinks. If you're build the BLASIOS gigantic communist in New York and you mean just from his height Gel both. Yeah and if you want if you want less of something you tax it like cigarettes taxed heavily if you want more of something you subsidize it. If the other forty eight states California and Illinois they are subsidizing wildly responsible spending and you will get more of it if you're an Indiana and right next door freaking Illinois gets bailed out for your heating Illinois Air Thinking. We're fools not to be doing the same thing they've been living like the aforementioned sailor and I apologize to the United States Navy and it's fine enlisted men and officers and women for using a sailor in this example but if you see Illinois living like it's on a coke binge with no repercussions you're thinking. Hey good to me and then you know you're expecting to be bailed out. Jackson theory has been there will be one. There will be one state that gets bailed out by the other forty nine and then that second state comes along in America. We are slow to pay attention in wakeup. But America will say WHOA.

I'm please separate the rank and file state employees from upper management and political appointees amount auditor for the State. I make less than seventy five. Kfi working for a private accounting for my be making twice that my question is why. Aren't you working for private accounting firm? I'm not criticizing your arguing. We appreciate the point. I just do understand the logic of that. If you could make twice as much in the private wire you there. The value everything has a trade off. And they value certain things more than perhaps. You've yeah that's fine. Thank you for the point though right so that maybe that fits in with this. It used to be that if you worked in the public's used to be a few worked in public sector sector then you would make less money but not have to work as hard and have more job security. Private used to be more risk more money. Yeah you know. Maybe that's a trade off that other person made anyway Sure we'll be talking about that for the rest of my life Or I can just open the gardening shop that have dreamed of. Never talk about it again.

This type of behavior is unacceptable. We become in our city, disrupting our city. There's will be seen later found out that four people were also hit by shrapnel and had minor injuries. One person was calling me, and while I'm talking to them. There are gunshots in the background. That's unacceptable but I think. When you look back, you gotta say the cops need a great job. It was it was a potentially violent situation. We gain compliance and we flushed it out of there there. You go miscreants trying to make a rap video Daytona beach. And so I don't know whether. The gunshots come from I. Don't. You have to fire off. You're going. That's part of being a rapper. Yeah I. Don't know if there were like pyrotechnics involved that went awry or food as in lieu of special effects, they were just shooting off. Guns did I I, don't know I. Don't know if the further. Behavior New I'm against it. I like their tone there. Though shooting a rap video, you'll not have this. So. There's a race between a couple of states. Going broke. And in the mix is the biggest state in the country and the problem with it. Going broke is of course the state. The biggest economy. It would need the most money. And if you live in, California it's bad if you don't live in California, it's really worse because you don't even get to vote in California, but you might have to send some of your taxpayer money to bail California. Why California's in trouble there are how many employees public employees in California make one hundred grand year more once. You think about that for a moment. Three hundred forty thousand. D- need that. Many public employs period. It seems like a high number just in terms of employs, but there are three hundred forty thousand public employees in California make one hundred, thousand, a year or more. When was now granted CAL UNICORN CORNEAS? Expensive place to live, and so you're going to have to pay people more. Than, say account than a state employee in Mississippi for instance but three, hundred forty thousand. When was the last time a program or a department? That was no longer need in California's folded and done away with. And all those people I don't know. Maybe they were reassigned, or what have you, but this is no longer necessary. It's wasteful were ending never never happened just grows and grows and grows and grows few work in the private sector. They get rid of your. I don't know what's A. Of Department I could throw out there that maybe people could relate to I. Don't Know Your Tech, twelve or something like that hr is a big one. HR is a big thing to that and everything. How are we going to function without an HR person here? Oh, figure it out poorly. We're going to get it. Yeah, it's going to be worse. We don't care deal with it. That doesn't happen in government. No. anyway so as looking at the list of the ten highest paid public employees in California, and they're almost all in a school district of some sort because the California teachers. Association is the most powerful Union in America and they've gotten a good deal for a whole bunch of people. You've got a bunch of people that are making three hundred four hundred thousand dollars a year in school districts That's serious money. Well it. Maybe I could be convinced that you need to spend that much money to get somebody that could do that job, but I'd be pretty surprised. Well come on, there are three hundred and forty thousand people making a hundred grand. You can't find anybody for thirty percent. lasser whatever who's competent qualified well. We've do chronicled through the years the incredible bloat in administration. You're usually talking about schools, but are. I'm sorry, colleges, universities, but schools up and down. The line are much more administration heavy than they've ever been before. And less frontline heavy. and. The problem is the unfunded pensions well number one that just the pensions. And the pay for the active people is just incredibly high as for the reasons Jackpot, but Number years ago in Illinois got the same problem there a number states that are really up against it. The unions got the legislatures to pass these these laws establishing or changing the pension systems. They said listen. We're GONNA. Have the teachers for instance in the firefighters and the cops kick in X. amount of their their paycheck. Every year or every paycheck, and then with the growth in the investments of the funds We'll have more than enough money to cover their retirement. They're very generous retirements. Except that those formulas they offered up. We're complete fiction. All it has to happen is seven to nine percent growth in the stock market every single year, and specifically in our investments. As long as that happens these these numbers work. Yeah, except that that's never been well, it hasn't been. Something you could rationally expect for many many years, and you have crashes have downturns you have flat periods and the rest of it, and so now those fictional numbers of mean that they're China Norma bills unthinkable retiree pension bills come due soon, and there's no money in the till so your California could be the first to the finish line I've been really favoring Illinois. Illinois for longtime is the the first state to go broke. Because Illinois is fiscally, it is a a drunken sailor on a coke binge. In Bangkok, in terms of responsibility, California by Shears, this is and union slavery, slipping slave to the union could beat Illinois finish. Is this a fair statement? A government job should never be a better deal than the private sector. Why would it be? well I'm. There are special cases I suppose that. no, I mean a an employer. Why can't it be selling? Your Labor is selling your labor. What how does it get to be because it clearly is? Like I understand. Why but why shouldn't it be right? Why if if somebody is working in again? My arguments largely theoretical, but I would. If somebody's working for the state, you know I would want good people there and to have competitive rates, don't you? Almost by default have to pay more than the private sector. If you WANNA get the best people why, because the private sector's China's hard as they can to get the best people to do I need to have the best person to start with, but we're not even close to that territory right. There is no way that the best whatever this person does. Yeah, what do you have to pay for Abusive Idiots right? Well no there should be just competition where. You're not talking about you. Know the hope diamond. You're talking about a commodity human beings. Unfortunately, there are a lot of us, and if you need a really good employees, there should be competition between the public and the private sector where you know, you get the best person for just use round numbers one hundred thousand dollars year well, the second best person is going to be making ninety, nine, thousand, nine, hundred and eighty dollars, because they're almost as resurrect and one of them went private private. One of them went public, and they're making essentially the same amount. 'cause they're. Like again it's not the hope diamond. There are a lot of competent people in the world, but we gotta get rid of the we. We have to get rid of the term public servant. You're not doing this because you're a public service auto show. You're doing this because you can hell of a lot more money than you could ever make in the private sector and you can't get fired job security. Yeah, the job security Oh my God. Some people actually in. State and federal work who they're.

Crohn's and they're getting a lot of attention for this and Kudos as it now represents forty different skin tones. People find that fantastic. I think forty seems like a lot. I can understand that. We needed to get away from one Caucasian looking crown that said flesh on it slashes a hot word anyway we're back to cannibalism now. Don't you mean skin on the Texas chainsaw massacre in the scenario flash is odd that there is ever a crayon called flesh. You don't need one that's for skin.

They don't need where's the CRAYON labeled flesh Tanisha pinkish would do. Yeah yeah they don't have a cran labeled leaf green. You're allowed to color the leaves Green. That's my point. I just didn't say it as well Looking at the depth chart Good weekend yesterday. Five hundred three lowest number in months nationwide. Why five hundred and three deaths day before that six thirty three so again. Is this a bit of a blip something to do with the weekend Memorial Day? Something or other. Will it come back into the thousands or we passed some point. We're going to stay down in that. Range will known a couple of days. I suspect rather strongly it's the latter just looking at Georgia's experience. They opened up more and earlier than virtually any other state. And they're not trending down with. They're not trending up and that beginning the numbers and listen with all due respect to the the loss of certain families who again we're never cavalier about your loss. Were just trying to balance. You know of the shutdown and it's terrible terrible effects with with the risk of the covert just understanding going in but The numbers are actually not impressive. At all right now and getting back to Italy. I made the point at the very last hour. They think one of the reasons they had such a high death toll in Italy because nobody can quite sure why there a tremendous number of Chinese garment workers there so they know why there are so many cases but the death toll seem to be much higher and epidemiologists are now saying it's probably because they had incredibly mild flu seasons for a while and there were so many Ulster's who normally would have died of the flu who didn't and they were their old and vulnerable. God bless them and the Cova got them instead the covert also got Hertz. Rent a car as they became one of the highest profile companies to declare bankruptcy due to the pandemic over the weekend. They are already struggling in this. Put them over the edge that was. Oj's company right. Yeah if you're struggling and all of a sudden nobody can rent cars. Nobody is renting Garcia. They're not going anywhere. Yeah and finally. This the Libertarian Party. Which was really excited. When they thought they had just an amish show is going to be their candidate and and how he was going to stand on the debate stage and be the the grownup in the room. Well he decided he didn't want to be in this race for some reason and over the weekend. The Libertarian Party nominated a psychology lecturer and nineteen ninety-six. Libertarian vice presidential candidate. Joe Jorgenson as the party's presidential candidate. It's J. O. Joe She's a girl I know woven. Okay yes she's crazy. Smart and her platform is super and it makes great sense. I know good. But she's very compelling was. She looked like that matters. It does long along. Not at notable luck. She's the notable. Yeah Yeah I think I our picture and I can't picture Joe Johnson. I know how you feel about people whose first name and last name a tend not to trust the first name being derivative not like Joseph Joseph Center anything. We'll Jurgen again that's true that's true. Yeah I mean let's not get Clumpy militant little close to me. She looks very regular. And I don disparaging nothing. All just looks like a person yes. That's a good way to look. Maybe I'll end with this. Then attitudes toward China continued to sour in the United States.

"In yesterday's primary after the votes were counted some incumbent state up some were sent home and former vice president. Joe Biden continues to roll. Democratic voters gave Joe Biden a clean sweep the former vice president. Beat Senator Bernie Sanders in Florida Illinois and Arizona. Let me say especially to the young voters who have been inspired by Senator Sanders. I hear you. I know it's a steak I know what we have to do. Our goal is a campaign and my goal is a candidate for president is to unify this party and then to unify the nation very happy. Kim Fox tonight thanking her family thanking supporters. She got the Democratic win tonight to everyone who rallied around this race. That made it bigger than one thing. One issue who rejected the notion that we would talk about one singular case it not matter to the people of Cook County and put everything on the line for this. I thank you. Murray Newman defeated incumbent. Dan Lipinski in the Democratic primary last night by a narrow margin. I'm good person with pride and gratitude for the amazing coalition who helped bring this much-needed change Georgia's Birch. Wbz state politics reporter. Dave mckennie is here to take us deeper into those racist. Hi Dave Welcome back after so biggest takeaways of the night for you. Well I think that you know. Joe Biden put an exclamation point on his campaign with the wind last night. here in Illinois coupled with the winds in Arizona and Florida. I mean it just seems like you know. He is on a steamroller to the to the nomination for his. Party's you know There's just not any real way I don't see to stop him. I mean he in Illinois here I mean the the spread was twenty three percentage points. It wasn't even close. And that's after you know four years ago. Sanders pulled. The I mean. He came very close to Upsetting Hillary Clinton here was a two point spread but here Biden just. He wanted the suburbs. They want in the city One you know. Just across the board suburbanites older people So you know that's that's the that's the dynamic and play but you know. I think that we're in this corona virus issue. His created such a strange dynamic with our politics. Now I mean people like Have have tuned up to government and politics at times because it's boring or it doesn't affect them they think but here we are in this moment of time in our country where we're in a crisis and government matters and our politics matter and I think that you know. These campaigns is the calibrate what their messaging is going to be moving forward. It's basically you tap everything that's happened before and you focus on what is going to be monitoring people moving forward and I think that's what the Biden campaign the trump campaign. I think that's what they all are going to be focused on. So what does this mean for the Sanders Campaign? We saw in the last debate Just over the weekend him really connecting the covert nineteen pandemic to the need for universal healthcare in the United States. But is there. Is there a chance of his campaign regaining? Some traction at this point. I don't see that but I do think that the sanders campaign represents a really important constituency. His supporters are some of the most passionate people in Politics. And they matter and they're they're young people they're diverse. They fit for Democrats. This is this is part of the pulse of the Party. You heard Biden in the clip. We played where he's he's wanting to bring those people into the fold and give them a voice and you know how does Biden do that? Well maybe he picks up some of these points in the Sanders Platform on health care on student loans and speak to those people. Draw them in. That will be his key to success. Well in addition to the presidential race Dave. We talked earlier about the state's attorney race and a couple of congressional races. But I want to turn to a few other local contests on the ballot. Let's look at the seat up for grabs on the Illinois state. Supreme Court reminded us what's going on there. The Supreme Court has seven seats on it and it's controlled by Democrats and the way the Constitution is written. There are three seats in Cook County and this is one of those Cook County seats. It was hell by the late justice. Chief Justice Charles Freeman He was the only African American on the court. I won in fact and he chose to retire a couple of years ago and his replacement is justice. Piece gotten a Ville so Ville was on the ballot. This time for a ten year term This race has still not been called by the Associated Press Nashville is is up. Twenty four percent roughly and He's a second place person. Appellate Court justice named Jesse Ray us who has a twenty one percent ninety percent of the vote counted here? It's a little hard to see how that that spread narrows but as I said. Ap has not called that race yet. Let's turn the Cook County Clerks Race. What happened there last night again? It's another race that has not been called by a p ninety eight percent of the precincts have counted state. Senator Iris. Martinez is ahead. Pretty decisively. I think in looking at these numbers. She's got thirty four percent and then In second place Michael Karp Kevin Archie. Who at twenty seven percent? You know what most people who've been in their living rooms over the last month or so have seen these commercials that Kevin are she keeps airing about. How do you say my last name and I think I caught it right there? But he had a lot of money spent on television advertising. And it doesn't appear that that is going to get him over the Hump here. Were there any other races that that surprised you? I think the one that probably was the biggest headline of the night was in the cirque. Rational district Marine Newman Defeating Congressman Bill Lipinski and understand that congressman Lipinski is going to be making a statement about his campaign at two thirty this afternoon which WBZ will be covering. And I think that is a big victory for a progressive democratic politics Women's groups were very involved abortion rights groups involved in so newman has pulled this out. You know and she wanted on the strength. I think of of the suburban vote so between now and November what will be watching some of these runoff elections. Well again I think you know our our politics are so upset down right now and I think that that you know. There's such a hunger in the world about information on the corona virus. And so I think it's going to be up to two. Politicians of all stripes were on the ballot from top to bottom to figure out how they can best help people deal with this problem and it doesn't matter if it's a state level or federal level county level. That's right now all people's minds and I think you know I think in any of these campaigns you know that's GonNa be kind of the troop benchmark.

"This is reset. I'm Jen white in just a bit. We'll take you inside the somewhat. Arcane Process Illinois uses to apportion delegates in the presidential but first former Vice President Biden's campaign continues to rack up wins a massive night for former vice president. Joe Biden Michigan Mississippi and Missouri. And that's not all fighting. Also took Idaho and appears to split the vote in what many thought was a sanders. Stronghold Washington State Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders editor his delegate count with Washington split and with a win North Dakota but the Michigan win is huge for Biden Sanders won. The state narrowly over Hillary Clinton. For years ago and Biden's victory could play a crucial role in gaining the nomination. Here to tell us more about Biden's win and Michigan is Zoe Clark. She's Co host of Michigan. Radio's it's just politics is Zoe. Hi Jen so good to be here so tell me four years ago Bernie. Sanders squeaked out a win over Hillary Clinton in Michigan this time around Biden beat Bernie badly by seventeen percentage points. What happened exactly. Yeah I mean it was decisive now. Polls leading up to Tuesday showed that that appeared to be happening but polls said the same thing. Gen four years ago. Hillary Clinton up by twenty points just days before that March eighth primary and then Bernie Sanders one. So what happened is Biden. Took the state by storm whereas Bernie Sanders four years ago when all but ten counties in Michigan Hillary Clinton had only won ten. He wants seventy-three. It appears ninety nine percent of the state's precincts counted that Joe Biden is going to win all eighty three counties here in Michigan. What have you been able to? Suss out about the demographics of the voters who swung to Biden this time around. Yeah well I mean we are talking about it. Seems like all the sort of demographics right suburban women who are very important here in Michigan Union. Voters that in sixteen some definitely went to donald trump or went to Bernie Sanders. It appears that Biden is sort of reliving. The the Obama Voters including in the city of Detroit Biden got nearly two times as many votes than Bernie Sanders did in the state's largest city so we hunted Biden. Sanders approach campaigning in the state Differently because one was almost non-existent a Bernie Sanders really sort of double down. He tripled down on the state he came in last Friday. He was here all day Friday Saturday Sunday Monday. He was in populous cities that he was hoping for big turnout he visited. Detroit he visited grand rapids. He was in Ann Arbor Biden however he had surrogates up until Monday. Now you know he had democratic names John Kerry was here over the weekend folks like that but Biden did not come till Monday But he did hold a rally in Detroit with Kamala Harris and Cory Booker. And so there was some question among folks who watch this things were we gonna see. 2016 again. Was Biden sort of taking Michigan for granted but it turns out he was not. What does that tell you about where voters are in Michigan? The fact that Biden did not have a heavy presence there himself the F. surrogates they are but Bernie Sanders really poured a lot of energy to the state but couldn't get the votes. Yeah I mean I think you can take things away you can say one that Joe Biden was not Hillary Clinton And you can have a whole hour or two conversation on reset about that and the differences in candidates there. The other is the fact that it appears that Michigan Democrats voters are seriously fed up with Donald Trump and whereas there was a possibility in sixteen. I will always say you've probably heard me say this before. That was not the Donald Trump one Michigan. But Hillary Clinton Lost Michigan right and so it appears that Biden. Got The turnout in a way that Hillary Clinton did not and that Democrats are frustrated and maybe Biden was not their first choice or their second choice or their or their four choice but they are falling in line right old adage is Democrats Fall in love not in line but it appears that is what they are doing here with Joe Biden because of frustration against Donald Trump. Let's talk about the youth turnout in Michigan. Because Bernie Sanders has really made a strong argument for being able to call out young voters. Bring THEM TO HIS CAMPAIGN. Bring them to his side. Did that happen in Michigan? So it's really interesting because that is what we had also heard for days right. That the youth vote Particularly because Michigan also aside from a okaying a no reason absentee ballot in eighteen. Also cades same day voter registration of which thirteen thousand new voters took part in the day of and there was lines that we saw outside of college campuses right that we assumed than an exit polls found out that did go for Bernie Sanders and turn up. Turn out was up but it did not help sanders right. Turnout was up but it still went for Biden. And so you've gotta decide. Was this just a vocal minority But the coalition was not what it was for Bernie Sanders in sixteen and some of that included the youth vote so Michigan Manufacturing state long history with the automotive industry. How do those voters play into this race? Well I think you can't discount that right and Joe Biden certainly. Didn't you probably remember You Know Joe Biden here in Michigan. Barack Obama here in Michigan You know during their administration and the line during the federal bail was Osama bin Laden is dead and General Motors is alive and so a lot of auto workers are remembering that and remembered that about Joe Biden and some union voters right who did crossover and and vote for trump It appears that Biden was able to grab back that vote. No Biden was endorsed by several of the previous previous Democratic candidates. That have since dropped out of the race to judge. Amy Klobuchar Motor recently Cory Booker and Kamala Harris. Do you think those endorsements are part of why we're seeing this momentum behind Biden right now yes. I don't think you can discount it and part of that. We know because again the absentee ballots. Tell us something so here in Michigan as I keep talking about these absentee ballots but it is important to note. That folks were turning in absentee ballots. But then you're also in Michigan allowed to do what's called spoiling a ballot so in Michigan there were still more than a dozen presidential candidates on the ballot and some folks voted absentee two weeks ago for people to judge or Elizabeth Warren but then they came back and they spoiled their ballots which means they went to their city clerk and said look. I don't WanNa you know. Have My vote not counted? I want to get it back. And it looks like a majority of those folks went towards Joe Biden and I think this goes back to maybe not the first choice Munoz second choice number third place but they are going to fall in line. And so a lot of those folks that Amy Klobuchar Elizabeth. Warren's the Buddha judges on and on appear to have decided that their second choice at least between Bernie and Joe was joe so to the surprise of many Senator Bernie Sanders only secure to win in. North Dakota also had slightly in Washington State. Voters still being counted at this point. How difficult would it be for senators to bounce back and win the nomination? Well I mean I keep an eye on Michigan. I want be careful talking nationally but I mean by to needs fewer than half of the delegates laughed and I just the folks are saying what I mean. I can even say looking at Mando now. You know a math major in college here but is the pathway right to get the nomination for him. Just doesn't appear to be there and I think it was telling last night that after Biden's win in Michigan and as you mentioned other states Bernie Sanders chose not to speak. I mean I think that is telling and not just in that you know corona virus fears and maybe they didn't want to have rallies I mean Biden delivered his speech not in front of an audience. I think it is telling and I think we've gotTA wait the next couple of days to see to see what happens for Bernie Sanders but anyone who's just looking at the delegate math. It is very difficult to see a path forward Bernie Sanders will next week our state Illinois along with Arizona Ohio and Florida will hold primary elections. They're still a general election ahead. Remember that remember that yeah coming around November. Well you'd be watching four. Oh my gosh. I mean for Michigan. It is just Ken. Trump do it again. We went six presidential election cycles. Going to Democratic presidential nominees Donald Trump stopped that in twenty sixteen and so it is going to be fascinating to watch whether democratic voter turnout Does what appears to have done in. The primary does what it appeared to do in twenty eighteen. We had the highest voter turnout for a mid year election in decades and decades in Michigan in Eighteen and Democrats basically swept all the statewide races. So you know that is telling and portends that Michigan could possibly if election held in the next few days go blue but as you say November is a long way off that so he Clark. She's Co host of Michigan. Radio's it's just politics Zoey. Thanks so much pleasure.

Because of that stone fruit to it that really kinda makes it a little bit different. But if somebody said to me, it was a Russian imperial that. I wouldn't of said really, well, I would've said. I agree. It's tasty. And. Bessant? I get a little effervescent and eleven point five. I don't get that wall so ever. So that's what makes the spirit dangerous boozy. It's not boozy doesn't taste like a Russian imperial stout. You think maybe you're just having a light porter? And all of a sudden you stand up on your drop down. But that the southern Illinois way. There you go. Right. Illinois beer. So I have a question for you guys. How the hell did you get such an effeminate dog? I know actually in real life that no but feminine looking dog like a Salou key. There's a weird Egypt thing going down in southern. So southern Illinois is known as little Egypt. Really? In fact, pyramids. One of the towns down there, which in Egypt is pronounced as Cairo but down in southern Illinois K row. So it's no serpent. They have trouble with English also fill it. It's known as little Egypt. It the Salukis is actually the fastest dog. Yup. And I greyhound faster than a greyhound. It will be great legs on of that and airline Keith greyhounds. They're kind of mean, and I saw the Salu key mascot for the foot during a football game. Ace the Drake university football team off of the field. Interestingly enough, you say that FOSS, but they have a hair hanging down. Right. That doesn't dog curious locks. They they look like supermodels quite Afghan. Like, they do have fluffy years, and they are extremely fast, and you can't outrun them. Well, I could outrun run a bloody d'action. Okay. So the Salu key is really. Going up in my estimation here. Well, done Salukis the beer I'm going to get a thumbs up here. And then we're gonna come back with our kind of bonus beer for a summary. What do we think on? This guy's like kids. We have oh, we have quite a mixed bag. We have we have one undecided. We have one two three. I'm going to get one-two-three thumbs up a thumbs down. I'm gonna give it a halfway only by virtue of okay, it's a Russian imperial stout. Doesn't ice that characteristic of one? But I do like the flavor. So I love the name. Now. I love the name. I love the video clips, and you know, the whole significance of it. I think is really unique to southern Illinois and kudos to big money. I mean, taste fine. It just the style might throw you amber lager that they put out for for seventeenth street. So. Maybe I'll give it's my go-to there. I got on the beer, I do blackout on the route. It'd be good because I am Balogh as to what don't hate him. Okay. Them a little bit of extra. Give them extra. Thumb woods because it's a really cool. Nice label. Very good. We'll come back in a second. And you guys going to SIS what you think your favorite Bruce of the night were meaning that we know we we've tasted a few. That are okay better. Good. I've got the hiccups. Okay. Thankless. Finish up here. We've had we've had a bumper evening enough on everybody should be down here for this. In the pop. We have we have a crowd in the background right crowd. Yes. Down the back there. So we're gonna finish out the evening with a summary of what everybody's talked to biz..
