Dollars per job created there. And democratic assemblyman Robin share Rangers said that from that. 55 million dollars and national. Publicity with advertising. For the empire state. Start a New York programs they created about 397. Jobs let's talk about the failure of this program. In buffalo and the excessive waste chairman Edward Cox. It was announced with great fanfare of the buffalo Billy and them not once but about three times. In his reelection campaign in 2014. And he's first buffalo. November of 2013 fell apart because it didn't make any sense of that he tried to cover up bribery in you mosque in the increasingly about this thing and then. They probably put in 750. Million it was Reid announced in October just before Israel election isn't very big deal with sound Ali knows there. Now what could convicted held for taking bribes in connection with the rig in the bid for callables large contributors to contribute hundreds of thousands of dollars to to almost. Campaign that and that's the bottom line I think you had it wrong actually it turns out. There only 600. Jobs. Even those are questionable in terms of the more than a million dollars the job just wasted money. And not many jobs and certainly not good jobs from buffalo. And that's a lot of money wouldn't we've been better off in western new York and upstate New York do you have. A 750 million dollar tax cut which would then bring private sector. Entities into upstate New York to invest on their own would never have made more sense chairman Edward Kirk's. Absolutely Brian that's what should be done club going out. On two corporate welfare is what it is to your favor donors. In essence it's much better than the total all the people make a much better climate and tax cuts for businesses. To grow and come to new York and for families say they gather in New York. The kids seven goalies to find. Elsewhere. As I know we I have a daughter whose tennis pro in Beverly Hills, California she graduated with a B average from saint Lawrence university in psychology and can't. New York. And she had to move to California. Forage are sorry can speak from personal experience and it hurts. When you have your children grand children leave the State of New York where you grew up Bob. You hear this on the campaign trail lot of families horse or upset to have their loved ones leave because they can't find that you are. It's even it's even worse. That pride in the way things ago. Is. Andrew Cuomo. Continues as governor he's going or left as you can get security has stopped pipelines from Austin New York State would bring good. Clean Americans. Cheap gas two that would spur our manufacturing. Industries across a state of Western New York also quickly. She Americans gestured to England to replace. Russian LNG and thirty year or more expensive oil. And that simply to satisfy the the economic luddites who don't policy and leasing dobbs in New York. And for the same reason you kill the natural gas industry and so here for this thing people. Fifty dollar minimum wage is not good for upstate New York. It doesn't work just means more people work. His programs says who have more to. It is getting the democratic nomination to be president of the United States that played campaigns against well. Always about trough always well because he's running in straw. These the next presidency he was goers father did go. Decided you. And frankly. Also have a huge corruption. And. We're listening to chairman of the New York State Republican. Party Edward F Cox and noted diplomat and statesman who's our guest today on the rush report on ESPN. Aim 1520. There's a man from Buffalo, New York running for attorney general in new York and this is following the democratic attorney general Schneider and who beat four or five women up so badly that one of them lost their hearing. And now you have Republican candidate appears to be squeaky clean he doesn't have any type of abuse of women that Eric Schneider and professed which seemed extremely hypocritical because he was identifying with a meat to movement. Going after film producer Harvey Weinstein for using women and it seems he was even worse because I never heard of Harvey Weinstein beating up women. And here we had an attorney general was was to uphold the laws. Of violently beating women saying it was consensual role play let's talk about your candidate.

Just the good attorney general as he has a good lawyer. Help clean up Albany until actually loves doing this practicing law. And you he would be superb that is poses a succession of corrupt attorney generals who just want to. The use it as a steppingstone. To a higher office you know they were these people attorney general or AG. Stood for not attorney general but it did for aspiring governor. Eliot Spitzer who had his personal. Power problems and had to resign from office. As this. Cuomo was also turn job. They're just all look you have higher office there ideological supporters.

Ireland realistic developer we have witnessed the chairman. Of the New York State Republican committee Edward F Cox the rust reporter ESPN. Paying him fifteen twining let's talk about keeping the United States senate Republican answer real tough situation. I guess it's 5149. We have the vice president United States occasionally. Come in for tiebreaker Ers are trumps popularity is between 45 to 48% which I believe it's higher than Reagan. And Europe Obama in the bushes at this time of the presidency. Our power he's going to keep the US senate Republican. Chairman Kirk's. Well well rise it was a very difficult actually two years ago when custody. Sentences. Let there be six here so to cycle. And these numbers. What two years. Two years ago they were. Many more. Republicans and Democrats and missile. We've lost the majority. But this time around in the rest anyway. There are 24. Democrat. And the and of them are here in the state. That over take water and from. One was huge margins like ball well. In 2000 and succeed. And quote. West Virginia story. And is it looks like we could we are probably going to beat you up and see. Six. Governor Rick Scott is term limited Florida and he's running. War. US and now he's several points this. Like unexpected pick up that we. We beg you to lose so cutesy particularly. One. Very hopefully. A contested in Nevada and one in Arizona. The so are given them numbers. The economy is just do very well. Sokol who wave seems disappeared. Format war what percentage points wrote in the economy. In the last quarter. That an awful lot of issues and probably there are back into useful maturity. In these. Now let's Eric shift or towards the Republican House under Paul Ryan. It seems that congress has a very very. Low rate of acceptability from the American public. I think it's in the either singled to said the teens. Or people have confidence and our. Elected officials in Washington similar to the level of respect that you have for the media. So let's talk about the Republican House. When you about thirty. A seat advantage at this time com how does it look to keep the house Republican. Well it in mid terms first term for any president. Seats are going to be lost. The odds are I think in quality. One of the last 43. Mid term elections. The president. Party more seats in the house so we probably will lose seats the questions we lose more than 23 seed which is the Republican majority in the house. It will would've looked like. Maybe. Seven or eight months ago would. That in fact we would lose majorities but following it here in your state certainly. Where we picked up worse the last eight years from Democrats and any other. State and they're all those seats are at risk there eight of them that are risk. That look at them and it looks like that whole multiple again. As. A lot of Quinn's. Campaign peoples says it's the economy stupid and it is the economy and companies just doing so well. While the but he represented the boat house generally. May not be held at ice these people appreciate. There hold down member. Of congress who they see regularly and who they'd like. And given that the economy is all so well or it may elusive seats like we did in 97 the idea when things are going well our. Ninety in the 86 or nineteen. My knees. Where or you lose seats but not a lot. We've made lose seven great seats but we will hold on to the Republicans. The sort now hold onto that I'll. He used sound like former congressman Tom Reynolds.

RO where power you gonna do on this one messes are real real close call at arcs. Not only is that close call but it's a crucial call for the people of west York and upstate New York. If we don't whole mob two are one. Vote majority. In the states senate in Albany. Redistricting comes up in 20/20 one and it it will be the senate will be read district did. So it has two thirds Democrats the assembly have sinkers Democrats and Toledo won the governorship. Democratic governor of this the far left policies that squabble has adopted. For the sake of getting the nomination of his party the trees on the left now control his party. And that's not good Ford jobs in this work states. And that we will be fine. Yesterday even though maybe in 20/20 two would that be so much is satisfaction in this state we elect a Republican governor. When you have two thirds of both houses and the other party. Like governor route error Republicans Alamo away. Who's got two thirds vote goes against the B tries to get which some fiscal sanity. And some economic good economic cup programs and to tactic create jobs. And he is frustrated every time. By way those radical. Democratic majorities in the legislature.
