ABC News political director Rick Klein steps in



MATT: NO UNPREDICTABLE WEEKS WITHIN A FEW HOURS AWAY IN WASHINGTON. AND SO MANY IMPLICATIONS FOR MID-TERMS HERE IN WISCONSIN. BIG TIME TO BRING IN ABC NEWS POLITICAL DIRECTOR RICK KLIEN IS — DIRECTOR RICK KLIEN. RICK: NICE TO BE WITH YOU. MA: LET’S START IN WISCONSIN. WE HAVE THESE FALL RACES, UNITED STATES SENATE, GOVERNOR, ATTORNEY GENERAL. WHAT DOES THIS ABORTION DEBATE NOW DO TO THESE KINDS OF RACING? RICK: CLEARLY IN ALSTMO WITH EVERY RACE, YOU WILL SEE A DIFFERENCE OF OPINION IF WHAT SHOULD HAPPEN TO ROE V. WADE AND WHAT HAPPENS BEYOND. IN A LEIK WISCONSIN STATE WITH A DIVIDED GOVERNMENT AND A HISTORY OF SUPPORTING DEMOCRATS AND REPUBLICANS, IT COULD NOT BE MORE IMPORTANT. THIS ISSUE WILL BE DUSTED IN THE STATES ALMOST CERTAINLY IF AND WHEN THE COURT REVERSES THE ROE. THIS MEANS THIS WILL BE A WEID PROBLEM FOR STATE ATTORNEYS, FOR GOVERNORS, FOR SENORATES, FROM TOP TO BOTTOM OF THE BULLETIN NO MATTER WHERE YOU ARE YOU WILL HAVE TO FACE A LOT OF SOMETHING BECAUSE YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT 50 YEARS OF LAW OUOVT ERNIGHT PIER . THIS MEANS UNPREDICTABLE CONSEQUENCES. MA: TT BROUGHT SOUTH FOR A SECOND, WHAT HAVE WE WITNESSED THIS LAST WEEK? RI:CK AN EARTHQUAKE. IT’S ALMOST – SUGSTGE IT’S SOMETHING THAT CHANGES EVERYTHING BUT A HALF CENTURY OF POLITICS IS BUILT AROUND ROE V. DEWA AND THAT MEANS CAMPAIGNS TO TRY TO KEEP HIM IN CAMPAIGNS TO TRY TO TRY HIM OUT. MATT: WE JUST HEARD SENATOR BALDWIN, ONE OF THE BILL’S CO-AUTHORS, SAID THE DEMOCRATS WILL CAST A VOTE FOR WEDNESDAY, LIKELY TO FAIL. WHAT TO EXPECT THIS WEEK IN THE SENATE? RICK: THIS IS NO WAY TO GET REPUBLICANS WHO SUPPORT ABORTION RIGHTS TO SUPPORT IT. IT IS ABOVE ALL SYMBOLIC. AN IMPORTANT SUMO BUT KEEP IN MIND WANTS THE SUPREME COURT TO REJECT ROE V. WADE, THIS IS NOT FEDERAL LAW MATE OFR, IT IS ABOUT THE CONSTITUTION. THERE IS NO PROSECUTION FOR OTHER CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT. WE SEE ANOTHER SITUATION WHERE DEMOCRSAT CONTROLS WASHINGTON AND HAS NO VOTES OR ABILITY TO AFFECT MAJOR CHANGE. TTMA: LET’S LOOK AT ONE OF THE OTHER GREAT STORIES, PRIMARY IN OHIO. REPUBLICAN ON NOMINATION AND THIS PRIMARY AFTER PRESIDENT’S APPROVAL. WAS IT A LIMS TEST FOR THE POWER OF TRUMP’S ENDORSEMENT IN THE HALF-TERMS? RI:CK SHE WOULD NOT BE THE NOMINEE IF IT WAS NOT FOR PRESIDENT DRUM. I DON’T THINK ANYONE ASKED ATTH. THERE WERE OTHER RACES THAT ARE IN OHIO LIKE GOVERRNO DEWINE WHO COULD SUGGEST LIMITS TO TRUMP’S POTILIC ATTRACTION. HE HAS NO LOVE FOR GOVERNOR DEWINE BUT THERE IS NO QUESTION TRUMP IS THE PRE-EMINENT AND DOMINANT FORCE IN THE REPUBLICAN PRIMARY AND THIS MAJOR FIRST ROUND OF VOTING IN THE MIDWEST DEMONSTRATED MOST CLEARLY THAT YOU CAN. MATT: WE HAVE MANY REPUBLICAN CANDIDATES FOR GOVERNOR IN WISCONSIN, UNTIL MAR-A-LAGO IN LAST WEEKS TO MEET WITH TRUMP. WHAT IS TRUMP’S APPROVAL DUE TO A GOVERNORS RUN SPECIFICALLY WHEN YOU SEE WISCONSIN? RICK: GOVERNORS LOOK DIFFERENT THAN SENATE RACES, ALTHOUGH I THINK THE FACT THAT YOU HAVE AN OPEN RACE ON THE REPUBLICAN SIDE WILL BE THE MOST COVETED THING WHETHER PRESIDENT TRUMP DECIDES TO HAND IT OUT OR NOT, WHETHER HE IS CLEAR AND OBVIOUS FAVORITE, IT’S NOT NECESSARILY WHO JOINS VELOCI.TY IN OOHI T – OHIO, EVERY SENATE CANDIDATES WANTED TO BE TRUMP’S STBE FRIEND, THE QUESTION IS WHO TRUMP MAKES THE CALCULATION AND STAFF – THE MOST LIKELY PERSON TO WIN. FOREVER WHO IS THIS PERSON, IF THERE IS ANYONE WHO IS BENEFITED FROM THIS APPROVAL, YOU CAN IMAGINE THAT THERE WILL BE A MAJOR BUMP IN FUNDRAISING, IN POLLS. IT DOES NOT GUARANTEE YOU ANYTHING, BUT DOES WHAT YOU AND THE CONVERSATION DO IN A WAY NOTHING ELSE ON THE REPUBLICAN SIDE CAN. MATT: AN INCREDIBLY BUSY WEEK. RICK KLEIN, THANK YOU SO MUCH. RICK: NICE TO BE WITH YOU. MATT: UP NEXT, TOURISM SPENDING IN WISCONSIN
