tv The Daily Briefing With Dana Perino FOX News January 16, 2019 11:00am-12:00pm PST
>> the president's press time just getting back saying the president and his team had a constructive meeting with the members of the problem solvers caucus. we'll report more on fox news. you keep watching. have a great day. i'm harris. here's dana. >> dana: fox news alert. it's 2:00 p.m. in new york. we're following three big stories. a deadly terror attack in syria killing three soldiers. nancy pelosi asking president trump to delay his state of the union address until the government is open and theresa may facing a no competence vote putting her job on the line. hello, everyone. i'm dana perino. this is "the daily briefing." it's crunch time for the british leader after her brexit plan was defeated in parliament. lawmakers debating on whether may's government should remain in power. greg palkot live in london.
greg? >> hi, dana. we're literally minutes away from knowing if u.k. prime minister will survive yet another political challenge. as you noted, happening right now in the house of commons, the u.k. parliament, a debate and a vote on a motion of no confidence in may's conservative government. that was put forward by the opposition labour leader jeremy corbyn. this after humiliating defeat yesterday of her plan for britain to exit the european union, brexit, leaving the political state of one of america's most important alleys in a bit of chaos right now. here's a bit of back and forth between the two party leaders. >> there can be no doubt that this is indeed a zombie government. >> he would abandon our allies, weaken our security and wreck or economy and we will never let that happen. >> may, according to analysts,
is in fact expected to survive this vote and then she's supposed to come up with another brexit plan next week ahead of a deadline to wrap this up by the end of march. as you can imagine, e.u. officials are shaking their heads right now. they issued a warning against the massive disruption which might come with a no deal brexit and that is a real possibility right now, dana. they're also suggesting the possibility of extending that march deadline even welcoming britain back into the european union. we're studying closely the vote going on right now. we're waiting to see if may lives on to fight another political day and another one and maybe another one. back to you. >> dana: lots of drama there tonight. later this hour we'll have more on brexit and theresa may. my husband, peter mcmahon, will join me along with "wall street journal"'s dan henninger. a routine patrol turns deadly for troops in syria.
a warning, the video you're seeing graphic. isis claiming responsibility for a suicide bombing inflicting casualties. jennifer griffin is live with more. what are you learning about this attack? >> we're told there's multiple american service members killed in this suicide attack in northern syria. we're withholding the numbers pending next of kin notification. this is the actual explosion that ripped through the restaurant where u.s. special operations forces had gone for a meeting. the impact of the blast appeared to be magnified because the troops were inside at the time of the explosion. the attack happened in manbidge. last year an american delta force commander was killed in manbidge. the kurds and u.s. forces have
been asked to leave prompting president trump to call for a pull-out of all 2,000 u.s. troops from syria. pentagon officials worry that u.s. troops would be a target following the president's surprise attack in december that u.s. troops were pulling out. the decision led to the resignation of defense secretary jim mattis. >> dana: any word about the impact of a withdrawal? does leaving make more sense? >> it will be up to the president who vowed to hold isis accountable if it struck the u.s. after u.s. troops pulled out. three hours after records emerged that american soldiers had been killed, mike pence spoke at the state department praising
the president's decision to withdraw. >> thanks to the leadership of this commander and chief and the courage and sacrifice of our armed forces, we're actually able to begin to hand-off the fight against isis in syria to our coalition partners and we're bringing our troops home. the caliphate has crumbled and
has been defeated. [applause] >> the president had always said that he would not telegraph his punches. isis has already claimed responsibility for today's suicide attack. since the president's announcement last month, there's been more than 1,000 u.s. air and artillery strikes against isis in syria. last week in cairo, secretary of state mike pompeo speaking broadly about the region saying the u.s. military learned its lesson from retreating from the middle east. >> we learned when america retreats, chaos often follows. when we neglect our friends, resentment builds. when we partner with our enemies, they advance. >> in multiple speeches we've heard the president say he wouldn't micromanage his generals. last week it was announced that equipment was withdrawing. those that said telegraphing those punches made these troops
a target. >> dana: jennifer, thank you. a new flash point in the shut down stalemate in washington. nancy pelosi asking president trump to delay his state of the union address until the government is reopened. in light of coast guard members going without pay, chris stirewalt, he wrote a column saying whatever happens the moment when the politicians in a republic would rather attack each other at the cost of our military starts to feel like a tipping point. chris stirewalt, fox news editor. we talk about this, your podcast will be posted tonight. but let me ask you about this news that nancy pelosi has decided she's going to use a tool in her tool box to suggest that the president not come to do the state of the union until the government is reopened. the thing that she cited is security concerns. not that you're going to give a speech until the government is reopened. i saw that kevin mccarthy, the minority leader in the house apparently told nbc news that
nancy pelosi should stick by her invitation that she had already granted to the president and said this is unbecoming of a speaker. your thoughts? >> there's a lot of unbecomingness to go around. we're not running out of it. for pelosi, citing security here puts trump in a difficult box. if he says no, i want to do it, because what she said is i think you should delay. she didn't say you may not. she said i think you should not. if trump says i want to do it anyway even if the shut down is on and causes more people to work without pay and security apparatus, i'm going to do it anyway because it's really important. look, these speeches are usually not important. they tend to be a lot of wind gusting. this is true of every president and every party that these have for a long time been political theater and speeches. if trump says no, i demand to come do it and then delivers one of those speeches, it wouldn't
be a good look. >> is it possible that senate majority leader mitch mcconnell could invite the president come give the speech in the senate chamber? >> it's possible. a lot of things are possible. that doesn't sound like something that mitch mcconnell would do. so the speaker of the house is the ranking person in the congress. right? she's the third in line to the presidency. it's her party. and they can cry if they want to. it's her -- i don't think mcconnell will get in the question. the question is, does the president say no, i want to do it anyway or do they do some alternative -- >> dana: yeah, the president could play this hand very well to his advantage. basically, you know, say i would reopen the government. she clearly doesn't want to help me because she wants to deny me a political win. my responsibility is the security of the country and therefore i'm going to do what i need to do. maybe he declares a national emergency, gets the government back up and running.
the emergency is in the court for two years but that's the issue he runs on. he says i'm the commander-in-chief. this is my responsibility. you're playing politics. i'm going to be the bigger person here. >> and do that from an alternate location to try to emphasize border security. a shut down was designed in the 1970s as something that no one wins. that everybody loses. right now i think that's very true. when you talk to republican and democratic members of congress, when you talk to hill staffers, when you talk to the political elite in washington, everybody is sick of it. they know that this has to end. you can't have 40,000 coast guard members that are not getting paid. you can't have it. the question is, who breaks down. the question is who breaks down. i don't mean which side caves. at some point you'll see in the united states senate, there's going to be a jail break and you'll get a large enough group of senators that will say we're done doing this, we're coming up
with our legislation and let the president veto it. >> dana: harris faulkner just reported on "outnumbered overtime," that the meeting with the caucus was productive but a step in the right direction. >> look, the president wanted democrats over at the white house to undermine nancy pelosi. they wouldn't do it on their own but they would come because it's a bipartisan group. they would come as the members of the problem solvers caucus. i'm sure they presented the president with an avenue out of this. the president will lay his hand on a tool within reach. who knows if today the problem solvers didn't say, as typical, here's a commonsensical approach that we can take to get out of this. how about we meet in the million. if they want $1.6 billion and they want $5.7, let's meet at $3
billion and call it a day. >> dana: and the president has been demanding he get $5.7. we'll see. chic out chris' podcast. it's on itunes. a new one will be on tonight. new concerns about the economic impact of the ongoing shut down. the white house projecting the damage could be worse than expected. the deadly terror attack in northern syria claiming the lives of american soldiers as the u.s. prepares to withdraw. dan crenshaw, a former navy seal will join us straight ahead. >> i will stay in the region and we'll stay in the fight to ensure that isis does not rear its ugly head again. we will protect the gains that our soldiers and coalition partners have secured. if you're a veteran homeowner and need money for your family,
as a veteran, you've earned the powerful va home loan benefit that lets you refinance up to 100 percent of your home's value. and with home values rising, that can mean a lot more money for you and your family. and because newday usa has been granted automatic authority by the va, they can say yes when banks say no. and they'll do all the va paperwork for you. we all know some of life's most important financial decisions are made right here at the kitchen table. so, if you're a veteran and need cash, calling newday usa could be one of the best decisions you'll ever make. go to newdayusa.com, or call 1-877-423-5734.
well, here's to first dates! you look amazing. and you look amazingly comfortable. when your v-neck looks more like a u-neck... that's when you know, it's half-washed. add downy to keep your collars from stretching. unlike detergent alone, downy conditions to smooth and strengthen fibers. so, next time don't half-wash it. downy and it's done. our big idaho potato truck and we're going to find it. awe man. always look for the grown in idaho seal.
>> a deadly terror attack in syria killing four soldiers. a blast ripped through a busy street targeting a coalition convey. now lawmakers are speaking out about the president's decision to draw troops from syria. >> the president has not shared with the foreign relations committee much of his foreign policy objectives or strategies or talked to our allies. they're not clear as to our
policy. so it's causing national security problems. >> my concern about the statements made by president trump that just set in motion enthusiasm of the enemy over fighting. i hope the president looks long and hard before he least syria. >> dana: joining me now, dan crenshaw. you've been in syria. you've fought on behalf of this country. how do you think about this event today and overall context of this global war? >> first of all, it's tragic. i've buried a lot of friends. i know a lot of gold star families. i'd say this. the last thing we want is that my friends die in vain. they were there because they believed in a mission. it was a mission to protect the american people. guys like me and guys like those killed today, they went there
and we still go there so that they don't come here. every day there's not another 9-11, another mission of success. that's how we need to look at this. this is a long conflict. but we have people like me more than willing to go back over and over again. >> dana: do you think we have gotten away from reminding people that this is a generational conflict? it's not something that you can solve and get it back out over here? this is an idealogical war? >> that's exactly right. that's the message i try to send. we have to ask ourselves, what does mission success look like. if we try to give the american people a false sense of what mission success is, we're always going to come up short. that's why mission success is preventing another attack. when we give groups like isis or the taliban room to plan and space to grow, they will do just that. ney will always wake up the next morning thinking about how they're going to attack the united states. we have to be aware of that. that's why you send people like me over there.
>> dana: there's this map of 2017 showing how much territory isis controlled in 2017. and with all that good work over the last year, they have a tiny spot. that doesn't mean that they still can't attack. i wonder, does this lend more credence to people's argument, including the president, that leaving would be better than staying at this point? >> there's a lot of problems with leaving. yes, the president has done a great job working with the military to defeat isis in a territorial sense. right now what it looks like, isis has went to gorilla warfare like iraq and al-quaida. they didn't have territory but they were dangerous. if we would remove american troops, it puts our kurdish allies in great danger all sides, from the turks, from
isis, from all sides. it's not good for them. it creates a corridor for iran to reach lebanon and increase its influence there. we have the possibility of an all-out conflict between israel andless what and syrian territory. could destabilize the region. third, what i stated before, if you give them space, if you leave a vacuum of power and they feel relaxed like they can wake up the next day and start planning attacks on the homeland and that's what we have to prevent. >> sure makes arguing over $5 billion for border security seem very petty. >> it is. >> dana: by comparison. i'll give you the last word on the thoughts of the shut down and how this compares to what is really important out there. >> yeah. you know, when you lose guys on the battlefield, it puts everything in perspective. you brought up the $5 billion on the border. we need to secure our country. that means securing it in places like from attacks in syria and
against adversarieadversaries. i can't believe this is a debate we're having. we're asking for $5 billion. we have a plan to security the southern border. yes, it includes barriers. border agents need that, they need that extra tool in their till kit to defend the border. we have 400,000 people crossing, apprehended last year. that's a big number. we need to secure the border. this shouldn't be controversial. >> dana: thanks, congressman. >> thanks. >> dana: a live look at the floor of the british parliament. we got the results of the no confidence vote. and my husband is here, peter mcmahon. you know jasper. he's on the left. and the "wall street journal"'s dan henninger will be here soon. with all that usaa offers
why go with anybody else? we know their rates are good, we know that they're always going to take care of us. it was an instant savings and i should have changed a long time ago. we're the tenney's and we're usaa members for life. call usaa to start saving on insurance today. reach her health goals! i'm in! but first... shelfie! the great-tasting nutrition of ensure. with up to 30 grams of protein and 26 vitamins and minerals! ensure. for strength and energy.
ensure. hey, batter, batter, [ crowd cheers ] like everyone, i lead a busy life. but i know the importance of having time to do what you love. at comcast we know our customers' time is valuable. that's why we have 2-hour appointment windows, including nights and weekends. so you can do more of what you love. my name is tito, and i'm a tech-house manager at comcast. we're working to make things simple, easy and awesome. >> the ayes to the right, the nos to the left, 325. >> dana: that was moments ago. theresa may survived that no confidence vote. now a live look at the house of
commons. dan henninger is the editorial page editor for the "wall street journal" and peter mcmahon is my husband, a native of the u.k. and now an american citizen. we've had plenty of discussions about this, peter. brexit and you were a reluctant supporter of brexit. but has brexit become a situation where the britts feel like they have no way out but they also don't want to stay? >> yes, there's a lot of mixed feelings. in fact, knowing i was coming on today, i touched base with some of my friends today. from the three of them, i got about five different opinions. there's a lot of different feelings about it. many feel feel they were misled, particularly those that voted to leave. they feel they were misled with the information they were given. i think if there was another referendum today, it would be to stay. that being said, theresa may has said there won't be another referendum and if there was,
then what happens? if it goes towards stay, then the other side will say let's do the best of three. they are stuck with what they have and will have to deal with it. >> dana: dan, i said the u.k. is like the e.u., hotel california. it started as a trading deal and became much more political. now also it affects us. we have -- the u.s. experts to the aircraft, machinery, minerals and fuels. this does have a global impact. >> exactly right. what you're describing, the hotel california effect of the european union. once you're in, you can never get out is part of the reason for the referendum in favor of leaving. the u.k. -- people in the u.k. felt the european union have become this force and power in their life to the extend that they felt they needed more autonomy. so i agree with peter. if the referendum were today, they might vote to stay.
this doesn't diminish the authenticity of that lead vote. the problem is that a lot of politicians lamented the idea of leaving without themselves. their leadership having any path forward. no idea of how they're going to resolve the complexity that we've been watching the past month. >> dana: peter, you've been in business a long time. there were some benefits to joining the e.u. >> absolutely. when one considers the european union was purely a commercial union. for me, doing business across europe, it was a pain having to deal with the different customs and duties and the complications of dealing with every different country. so having gone to a single market was a huge benefit to business. >> dana: and then there were problems. you give an example that bothers you. the pork chop. >> doesn't bother me personally because i don't eat pork chops. but the european regulations
were more political. people in britain were unhappy about the european union stating how much curves there might be on a banana or a pork chop would come with a piece of kidney decide it. the european union said they couldn't do that. these are minor items, but there was a host of them. together they all combined to make people unhappy along with the european court of justice having jurisdiction over britain. many people didn't want to be controlled by bureaucrats in europe unelected in britain and -- but then had control over their lives. >> dana: and dan, there's an immigration component to it. it's not just here in the united states that has immigration problems. europe has them as well and it's bubbled up. >> it raises the question of whether some of the issues like brexit, the relationship with the european union or here in the united states, the shut down is about the wall and the
border. whether things like brexit or immigration have become so large, so complicated, pulling so many factions in from so many directions that the political class isn't able to function. we're seeing a remarkable example of gridlock in the united states and in the u.k. right now. >> dana: peter, a last word. how glad are you in 2006 that you decided to become a citizen of the united states? >> with apologies to my friends in the u.k., i'm very glad. >> dana: we're glad to have you. so glad you came on, dan henninger and peter mcmahon. >> thank you. >> dana: nancy pelosi asking the president to delay the state of the union. ari fleischer reacts next. we're at one of the nation's busiest airports affected by the partial government shut down. jeff paul is live in atlanta. how are things there, jeff? >> yeah, dana. running smooth so far. they are still showing up to work now that the government impact is affecting tsa officers and travelers after the break.
let's see. if these packs have the same number of bladder leak pads, i bet you think bigger is better. actually, it's bulkier. always discreet doesn't need all that bulk to protect. because it's made differently. the super absorbent core quickly turns liquid to gel, for drier protection that's a lot less bulky. looks like good things really do come in small packages. always discreet. for bladder leaks.
we know that when you're >> tspending time with thelass grandkids... ♪ music >> tech: ...every minute counts. and you don't have time for a cracked windshield. that's why at safelite, we'll show you exactly when we'll be there. with a replacement you can trust. all done sir. >> grandpa: looks great! >> tech: thanks for choosing safelite. >> grandpa: thank you! >> child: bye! >> tech: bye! saving you time... so you can keep saving the world. >> kids: ♪ safelite repair, safelite replace ♪
>> dana: as a partial government shut down drags on, the tsa is confident in its ability to do its job. saying in a statement they have optimized resources. so how is the shutdown affecting travelers? here's jeff paul at hartsfeld jackson international airport. >> yeah, they have the barriers here set up as they prepare for more people. take a look at the line. it's not bad right now. about 15 to 30 minutes. that's what tsa is saying is happening around the country. at times there's longer lines, but in general, it's been fairly average. the reason why we're seeing some longer lines is because some of the tsa agents are calling in sick. part of the reason why they're calling in sick, they haven't
been paid in a few weeks. as you can imagine, it's having a strain on their budget for things like child care, gas, food. we talked to passengers that count on the tsa agents to get from point a to point b safely and asked them about the government shut down. take a listen. >> just try to be kind and be grateful and appreciative. >> it's a shame for them. but president trump says it's going to be retroactive. they will get paid eventually and will be a lump sum. >> one thing that you need to keep in mind, the super bowl is here in atlanta in a few weeks. that is something the city is worried about. the mayor calling it unchartered territory they're expecting on the monday after the super bowl. doubling the amount of travelers that they're normally accustomed to having here in atlanta. >> dana: if you travel through atlanta, it takes a long time to get from one terminal to the other. jeff paul, thank you. as nancy pelosi urges the president to delay his state of
the union speech, some members of the senate now asking trump to support a three-week spending bill and reopen the government. lindsey graham and chris coons among those making that call saying we will make our best efforts following regular order in the appropriate committees and mark up bipartisan legislation relating to your request. this would include debating and voting on investments on the southern border that are necessary, effective and appropriate to accomplish that goal. joining me now, ari fleischer, press secretary under george w. bush. good to have you here. this just in my ear. chad pergram says that a senior source told him that speaker pelosi does not expect to get a response from president trump to her let they are morning suggesting that he might want to delay his state of the union. she cited security concerns. your thoughts on that, ari. >> well, based on what john roberts on fox news reported where the secret service and the department of homeland security
and people that worked to provide that security for the state of the union said there's no issues, i don't know that nancy pelosi is a security expert who can overrule the secret service and the department of homeland security. >> dana: yeah. why not just say this is my invitation, i invited you and now i'm disinviting you until the government is open. i felt like that would have been more direct. >> or just to say this is unfair, the people have to put in the overtime that are not being paid so i won't do that. she didn't do it. she tried to say security concerns. there are none. this is part of the shut down problem. you have people saying irresponsible things and not compromising. the government is not working. this is an embarrassment for everybody and we know it. the obvious answer is compromise. stop sending silly letters and compromise. >> dana: what do you make of the bipartisan problem solvers caucus went to the white house today? we talked about this letter that lindsey graham and chris coons are working on saying they're
going to try to do it. the president has rejected that. the stalemate is what it is. you have this situation with the polls just absolutely not budging in any way and not looking good for republicans and democrats almost that well. it was pugh research. 11% said a barrier would be acceptable. in a question in support of the wall, 27% said they would be okay with a bill ending the shut down that does not include wall funds. so i can see why everyone is dug in here. >> yeah. we also know that people support walls. if it wasn't for donald trump being for the wall, everybody on capitol hill would be for the wall as we have been for decades. the walls work wherever the border patrol thinks they're necessary. my best advice, it's easier to see compromising on the number if they can get there. the other issue is if the president were to say he will have nothing to do with where
the border wall goes or what it's made of, this is no longer trump's wall, it's the border patrol wall, let the border patrol make these decisions. try to neutralize the controversy. >> dana: because you understand the economy so well, i did want to read this to you. "the new york times" citing kevin hasset, said the quarterly economic growth will stunted .25% for every week that it lasts. last year economic growth for the first quarter totalled 2.2%. so in some ways, you can tell people, i haven't been affected. if the economic condition of the country turns downward, that is affecting everybody. >> i think what he's saying is turning town ward but a teeny
tiny amount. if you're one of the people affected and not getting a paycheck, it's a 100% downturn. for the economy as a whole, it's so multi-trillion dollar, it's hard to see how this because of a partial government shut down has a economic effect of any lasting significance. the real issue is the significance of our system stopped working. people don't get along. they don't vote. this is the essence of it. if you think this is going to be the end of it as we get through this, dana, just wait until nancy pelosi and the democrats in the new house decide they want to put funding in for something that is their priority, be it on global warming next fall, when all the bills are due and the senate doesn't want to do it. are we going to go through it again? that's why getting it done in a compromise is so important because it sets the pattern that when the democrats are in the house, the republicans in the senate, they can figure out how to govern. >> dana: we hope that is true. you're a wise person, ari. thank you. >> thank you, dana. >> dana: the democratic field of
2020 contenders growing by the day and some are giving their play list. will they give them any edge? new tensions with iran. what state television is accusing the u.s. doing to one of its reporters. follow us on social media. we're at twitter. you can go to @dailybriefing on instagram and facebook for more pictures of jasper. what makes this simple salad

(straining) i'll take that. (cheers) 30 grams of protein and 1 gram of sugar. ensure max protein. in two great flavors.
>> shepard: shepard smith on the fox news deck. what's up with the state of the union? we're waiting for a response from the white house after nancy pelosi call for a delay of the president's speech because of among other things, the security. it's a power play. your move. that's coming up top of the hour on "shepard smith reporting." >> dana: an iranian state tv reporter has been detained after arriving in the united states. according to english language press tv, the american born reporter, on the right side of the photo, she was arrested with her son after flying to st. louis airport on sunday. u.s. law enforcement agencies have not confirmed this
information. this comes as iran confirmed that they're holding u.s. navy veteran michael white. the first american known to be detained since president trump took office. white is among several other american citizens none to be held in iran. so the democratic field of 2020 white house contenders keeps on growing with new york senator kirsten gillibrand hitting the campaign trail in new york today, this is california sen e senator kamala harris hints at running. joining us now, alex vogel, general counsel and the communications director for the dnc. alex, i have to ask you this. are you having more fun watching this primary than you did in 2016? >> a lot more. look, it's funny to see everyone run to do the late night show.
there was a time when that was something interesting. in 92 when clinton did it changed the campaign and that genre. now it feels like a tired set piece unless you do what senator harris did to get a cool kid factor. >> dana: let's show that. i have a little bit from senator harris. let's watch her. >> a presidential song for anyone. ♪ one nation under a groove ♪ getting down just for the funk of it ♪ [laughter] >> dana: it's cute and fun. what did you think? >> the senator has groove. i love it. this is all fun. it's all sort of the modern media landscape that we live in. one of the things that going to
colbert, doing these types of digital musical playing lists and doing the kind of instagram videos that we're seeing from some folks, it's a recognition that people are getting their information elsewhere, particularly younger voters and others. so they're -- you'll see it all. they're not going to stay away from doing your traditional news interviews. they're not going to stay away from doing your typical rallies and press conferences and policy roll-outs. to go where the voters are, particularly at this incredibly important stage where they have to define themselves is smart and fun. >> dana: speaking of defining themselves, senator brown of ohio was on msnbc. take a look at this. he could be somebody that is a little different but maybe some republicans look at him and say maybe we should be a little concerned about his candidacy. watch. >> we begin to notice that national democrats and some pundits say that democrats, they kind of make this a choice, either democrats talk to
progressives, to the progressive base or they talk to workers working class families regardless of race. to me, you have to do both. >> dana: what do you think of that, alex? >> it's interesting. he's making the play there's not a lot of candidates in the broader democratic field that can make, which is to reach out to potentially rust belt republicans. joe biden is the one that has the opportunity. but i think it's smart for the senator to do that. i think right now of those not officially exploring or going on listening tours, vice president biden and probably beto are the two that have the biggest chance to really move this race around. >> dana: there was one other senator that put her hat in the ring. kirsten gillibrand. we have sound from work. >> we have to start rewarding work in this country again. anybody that wants to work hard should be able to get whatever training they need to earn their way to the middle class and to
be able to have the american dream, which is always been for every bun. >> dana: so she was out on colbert last night and this morning hitting a lot of the same themes that senator brown was hitting. how will they differentiate themselves enough to at least stay the course? it's early but it's getting closer to that team when they need to make a name for themselves. >> yeah, it's interesting. you're seeing a lot of debates taking place in the democratic party. there's a generational debate. do we need someone more established or fresh blood. there's obviously a record number of women candidates at a time when a lot of democrats think it's time finally to break that glass ceiling. you're going to see geographic debates and demographic debates. senator brown was talking about this false narrative between focusing on the obama coalition versus white working class voters. senator brown is right. the ultimate next democratic
president has to figure out how to speak to both. these are all things that people are at least thinking about and talking about and you'll see some of the candidates try to exploit some of those differences and differentiate themselves from one another along those lines. >> dana: alex, last word from you about senator gillibrand and other democrats that have said this. i don't have a list of them. one of the things she said, she will deny taking any corporate pack money, this is a litmus test in a race that will be very expensive to win. your thoughts on that. >> it's a little silly, especially since most of these folks have long histories of reaching out to the corporate pact community to support their campaign. it may be a litmus test for them but it's unfortunate. as they compete with beto who raised a lot of money in a senate race that will become a challenge. >> dana: i also saw today democratic women are
