Reagan the bids for callables large contributors to contribute hundreds of thousands of dollars to to almost. Campaign and the bottom line I think you had it wrong actually it turns out. They're only 600. Jobs and 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. That's a lot of money wouldn't we've been better off in western new York and upstate New York to have. A 750 million dollar tax cut which would then bring private sector. And peace into upstate New York whom passed on their own when they edit and make more sense chairman Edward Kirk's. Absolutely. Brian that's that's what should be done involvement going out.

Whose tennis pro in Beverly Hills, California she graduated with a B average from saint Lawrence university in psychology and can't. York and she had to move to California. Forage apps are you can speak from personal experience and it hurts. When your hair your children or grandchildren and leave the State of New York where you grew up Bach. You hear this on the campaign trail lots of families who are sort of set to have their loved ones leave because they can't try to charm. It's even it's even worse. And that prize in the way things ago. If Andrew Cuomo continues as governor he's gone or left as you can get your we have these stop pipelines from Boston New York State would bring good. Clean Americans. Cheap gas two that would spur our manufacturing. Industries across a state of Western New York but also good clean. She Americans gestured to England to replace. Russian elegy and thirty year or more expensive oil. And that's simply to satisfy the the economic luddites who don't wanna see anything dobbs in New York. And for the same reasons you kill the natural gas industry and so here's the thing people. Fifty dollar minimum wage is not good for upstate New York it's it doesn't work consisting of people work. His programs in who have more to. It is getting the democratic nomination to be president of the United States that played campaigns against. Always about trough.

Democratic attorney general Schneider and who beat 45 women up so badly that one of them lost their hearing. And now you have Republican candidate appears to be squeaky clean 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 abusing 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 who was to uphold the laws. I'm finally beating women saying it was consensual role play let's talk about your candidate. The Republican candidate for attorney general New York State worker. See people purges real well for the audience party is father worked in the Chevrolet factor I think uses his monologue that.

Just the attorney general as he has a good lawyer. Help clean up Albany and go back to it loves doing this practicing law. And you he would be superb that is closest exit question. Corrupt attorney generals who just want to. Use it as a steppingstone. Toward higher office you know a base for these people attorney general or AG. That's for another attorney general but that's for aspiring governor. Eliot Spitzer who had his first couple. Power problems and had to resign from office. As this. Cuomo was also attorney general but they're just below what you have higher office then there ideological supporters. The tradition as you might remember Bryant we're left with the people's lawyer. Very kindly and very fun. Or or Bob Abrams. What other people or well. Chief Loper in the buffalo and you want just just beat the people's lawyer.

In Long Island real estate developer we have what that's the chairman. Of the New York State Republican committee Edward calf Cox the rust reporter. ESPN. Paying him 1520. Let's talk about keeping the United States senate Republican answer real tough situation. I guess it's 5149. We have they have the vice president United States occasionally. Come and for tiebreaker Ers are trumps popularity is between 45 to 48% which I believe is higher than Reagan. And there are Obama and 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 currency. Sentences. Elective sexier so to cycle. And the members of what two years. Two years ago they were. Many wore a Republican and Democrat and missile. We've lost the majority go out there but this time around. Anyway. There are 24. Democrat. And about ten of them are in the states. Over take water and from. One it was huge margins by well. In 2000 and succeed. And and coat. West Virginia. Story. And is it looks like because we are probably going to be up and see. Six. Governor Rick Scott is term limited and Florida and he's running. Four. US and now he's double points this. Like unexpected pick up. We've made you lose support QC typically. One. Very hopefully. A contested in Nevada and the one in Arizona. The so are given numbers. Fact the economy is just do burger well. Sokol who wave seems disappeared. Format war was. Percentage points wrote in the economy. In the last quarter. That awful awful lot of issues and is probably sector. Back to a strong majority. In these. Now let's shift our 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 in either single pitch through the teens. Were people have confidence in 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. What you know about thirty. Seat advantage at this time. How does it look to keep the house Republican. Well it in mid term first term for any president. Seats are going to be lost. The odds are I think Tweety. One of the last 23. Mid term elections. The president. Party more seats in the house so we probably will lose seats to questions we lose more than 23 seed twitches 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 majority following it here in your state certainly. Were we picked up worse these last three years from Democrats and and the other. State. And they're almost seats are at risk that are eight of them that are risk. Look at them and it looks like that whole multiple again. As. One of Clinton. Campaign people's. It's the economy stupid and it is the economy and economies just doing so well. While the the represented the the house generally. May not be held device these people appreciate. There hometown member of the of congress to Tracy regularly and they lights. And given that the economy is all so well or it may elusive few seats like we did in 97 the when things are going well war. Ninety. 86 or nineteen. Mightiest. What are were you lose seats but not a lot. We've made lose seven great seats but we will hold on to Republicans. The sort oh hold on to that I'll. He used sound like former congressman Tom Reynolds.
