Joining us on the line is Republican political analyst Alex Castellano stalking about everything going on in Washington but Alex it seems like all the focus is on. Pennsylvania a special election there that. It seems to be getting more attention throughout the country and in DC than it is actually in the pits. Area. It's a big ration nationally because of course there were things about Donald Trump in America two days early. The president has been campaigning there. And there's a district he carried over twenty point but now it's swung against Republicans. By over twenty point so it's pretty much a toss up. And right now it looks like the democratic actually slightly favored to win. So did president trump with Israeli air this weekend. Did he help or hurt. Well yes. That that. He did a little bit of vote you know he's trying to pump up the trump vote there because the Republican candidate Rick Chacon is not overly enthusiastic and charismatic kind of guy. And the Democrat has been surging lately. But this ratio is more than. This race if I told that one of the candidates were running as a pro life. A pro gun. Didn't like Nancy Pelosi very much in the news. And they deserve first TV commercial each they are fifteen you'd probably say that was a republic. It's not it's the Democrats.

You know you're seeing a lot of politicians on both sides can put their finger in the wind hero there was a big Russian first Taylor charmed teachers in the classrooms. Little little the American people can assure foolish slow down the not a make that are dramatic let's kind of in their teachers and have specific. The experience and military or. Or and police forces may be you're in it slowed the politicians down and I think pushing the same thing on the H limit here. Look it's. A blanket to. Federal.
