You know I'm in it's really -- because I remember when Nash who's talking about this last year guests and you know I didn't really quite understand it and now it's kind of it's making more sense to me and it's really about bringing -- see other kind of truly and changing -- containing change and. Colonials don't want to exclude any money you feels like not -- midrange this is really about a mindset and I think there are plenty of the people here in this community that wanna be part of something larger than themselves and that's who we're trying to bring together. And those of the people do that you know. Had chosen a saint Vincent yeah there's an opportunities for a lot of these people you've mentioned we've on the show and to leave town and at one of the things we we we talk about always is trying to keep people. In Kansas City. Keep you linger appear here keep gives them options -- moving -- series that Cisco -- in Chicago or New York keep them in Kansas City you know and were competing with everyone. I mean it's dot just those cities obviously as a big ones it's Austin, Texas Louisville's. There's all these cities Omaha. We're still better is professional sports teams but I'd address. But you know it's just keep him in Kansas City dean and fun things to -- like this and bringing together. You know having people meet each other -- over cool unique events I think I don't remember you an event in. As is as unique is this I mean. That process of doing that golf course and golf balls got to be amazing to. Unreal and yet this is going to be you know party people talk about for the next coming months fer -- the fact that they -- at some point six dumped truckloads of dirt. Olympic green on the line and that and that and and delivery memorial folks were very kind and generous in allowing us knew I was about the wave but you try not they're now and it doesn't look the same it's great so. How -- in. People come to dissident I mean how many people are you guys expecting. Any ideas you know am I I think that's a pretty big goal of the minimum level were expecting is around 3000 people I think you know we're stretching that. -- beyond its boundaries are really wanna push and make sure it's crowded on if you ever seen the sixteenth drain at the Phoenix Open that's kind of what. I and his vision -- how we re create an environment where people are playing around the whole men -- -- nervous stuff I get picked to death just doesn't people watching you didn't. Also I don't even like hitting him on the force behind the -- -- I mean there. It's a pretty big spots doses I've been your document. You you know I can hit the ball over -- in like in a traffic or anything right now I don't know how to 170 yards I mean -- -- its -- -- for sure I'd like to see some money out partners in town to -- funded through this -- -- -- was the right now would be hit the -- really doing this this million dollar hole wanna be quite a story.

Welcome back DR turner Casey showed her host -- -- growth thanks for joining us you can connect with. -- you connect with me on Twitter at -- -- and at entrepreneur -- Seconds I wanted to show today we had tea old friend of mine who's a the honorable. Up all of it is a Missouri State senator welcome to show funky good to see you we ran into each other at. You were given a speech I think somewhere around half. I was about the Dolan talked to the Kasey -- -- -- -- let's say session in Bahrain Indian that we were in each other later that we can just do yes. And you just -- at this thing I get a -- did some leaders talk this surrogates are I don't want us are so and you meet world friends there and talk about the your family my family came from them -- consistently all that's left. But really what's important is that it's -- Sox take on the right and so so Paula as Taylor from the same city in in Sicily which is in -- villages very small right. It's -- to do drink the drink in -- -- the diligent and are preserved and in this general assembly together served served in the -- political world Paul actually. Was one of the people that can help to us army give me -- along with trips to accept the North Kansas City and a I enjoyed it policies from the district in independence. So your -- an industry that's when -- in the house now is it breaking down forests where he had represented eleven. Central distributor are present so it's a 170000 people. In northeast. Jackson canning -- Mainly independence does go into the northeast area of Kansas City -- in northeast high school and then runs east all the way to canning line. Buckner civilly. And then the southern portion picks in the sports complex in parts of -- can only some. What is the experience been like -- -- -- from the house over the cynic as you were in this house for years were minority gender. Or you know did it all is it is is literally and stained and I'm really kind of great reminder how good our system as does and how's your very regimented. Under 63 people. Kind of -- party lines quite a bit. On the speaker controls almost everything in the senate 34 and we don't sit by parties and all we sit. By seniority. -- we eat you get to speak as long as you want they can filibuster things. And there is really is a more deliberate. On process in the senate trying to come up with some -- more solutions. Cross party cross area. And even today even today when everything seems you pretty partisan even in state legislator more than it was maybe four years ago I -- mean act. I think it's up it's a partisan political environment whether it be Jefferson City or Washington but you in the states and it. Is the place -- try to come up with those solutions. Not always the case that. That's what's so great about system you want. A strong house with some. You know real battles and then you want a more deliberate. Body in the sudden you know that's how it should work -- we have frustrated because things move fast especially. Someone my -- this is in. You know and that your listeners entrepreneur of the move quickly and I like regulation and no doubt like to -- -- tape -- will be able to find ways that. Government can hurt them but there's also is they can help them -- -- -- government moves slowly and from a business -- -- he should be very glad that government Moussaoui. In underneath and Dell it's hard to get things that the. That is right good point because. You know and in the business world they're trying to as a start up you're trying to move things as fast as possible yet -- users quick you gotta get funding and and in government you know it does take a little longer meet some bills can take 23 years -- you start over every year obviously and Missouri you know you go from January to may. -- An idea could take a -- passed right and in its frustrated guys that are really long term I think that's that's very cool so you also is since it is a part time -- also work for treating America yes to me America credit union and you management development there and I would recommend at some point had a segment -- credit unions and how did they offer members. Remember around there co ops really good for small businesses -- -- -- -- -- -- could tell you took notice sure you know we we haven't had a pretty pretty union on the show -- it's an idea. So what happens Alec you guys are in session for engineers made its election year you're not on the dollar -- right so you're in good shape. Well you know it's really changed in process. In the house those minority leader and it was a good experience of leadership experience in relief. Push the issues that are important to. The minority party Democrats and who did the senate and was to have the ability a lot more legislation done. So I thought can tell the governor has vetoed summing things this year so my priorities are part of that so. It's a really -- in case this year. Because as a general someone is in a real. Locking horns with the with the governor. On days there's been more because -- never before there's been. Lots of line and a because in the budget so this summer. Is supposed to be the time to relax and let bills go into effect but now everything's been vetoed -- gear up for being veto session in September and that will not break on party lines. They may break on regional lines or. You know. Citi shares -- -- inverse is an ally in India suburban and all that stuff. And -- -- special becomes is this whole issue in the transfer should things are back -- will be were literally inching. Political time. As far as the the election comes up we. This is the state auditor is the highest. Office running and he's -- opposed -- so the state senate seats there's a few of them in Saint Louis and one -- area that is contested that on May be competitive -- Obama really kind of a quiet election cycle. And I am Missouri says for sure in Kansas DelHomme or Chris Richard very -- is that the governor juries and in the Statehouse -- we are talking we'll talk about that later on the show. You know it's very hard to you know take seats back for either party because of the way the districts are Senna but the -- there's only a handful of these blisters and understand it usually is only a handful collections that are. Really contested the right of the demographic and probably did the. Goal for the minority party is to get to a Vito. Proof number in the senate we need. I had to have twelve. We have ten now and in the house that in any three more so it kind of legal Bolivia and -- -- I think the benefit that is. That not whine. Party or. Belief dominates. Legislation and it's always a good thing to happen and why this is important frightened fearless uses the engagement in the process is always important I think. -- times business people. Will be watching neither their MSNBC here -- Fox News and think why can't affect what President Obama is doing but really you know you can effect. Your state represented as he states senator is and that title local lawman is -- -- -- networking which is important but also our rule influence on. What happens in general assembly yeah. That's so true and it's a traded that many more people to vote in these elections that's for sure we'll -- to think too when you're in junior in the house there's so many issues he vowed then and the complexities and these things just never will now so you really need people mean. To be vocal -- and so. Yet she -- young how somebody does he get the audio for some people you take more notice -- companies in some -- these regulations that. On these tax credits on these things. Is really good to hear this feedback hey this is really -- my business -- he now that doesn't only work for me. In his those things are really -- that we had about a minute left false let's make this quick but I get a lot of people on the show that. You know moved to Kansas and whether an LC and they want you know know income tax write what how is an issue going with the state -- with he knows that well. You know Kansas did massive tax cut you can see the revenues -- Missouri did the exact same thing over governor Nixon's objection. Whereas -- -- not not drop clearly though the just those little -- that I I would contend in the five years will be completely and and here's the problem we. Those of us who I got to live in Missouri -- Kansas. -- the reason we have had this cooperation because we're community. And people I've moved back and forth because the quality of life education roads and -- basic services stayed Kansas can deliver it anymore. They're gonna lose competitive advantage even though. They won't have to pay down their pastor corporations but they're elusive quality -- life that was a real benefit for community. And I think these massive tax -- only go to the top. Percentage. I'm really are not the way to build. Tax credit for. Angel investor would be there -- any more more effective way -- bar or targeted tax policy is the way to really build business. Not a massive tax -- top. Because it really hurts our overall bank. Call that a picture on the show today. You can you can check out state senator Paula noted Paul noted I come -- you'll be some socks now Linda I always got a break thanks for coming on the show thank you good to see -- I think you're right back and frontrunner Casey should. So Kansas City welcome back to DR turner Casey showed your hosts. Kissing -- thanks for joining us. -- became easy business channel 1660. AM and online and it came easy dot com on the live stream. Great to have you back with us and you can find all of our podcast again -- came easy dot com. And you connect with media via Twitter love -- treats for everyone at and Jason grill and at entrepreneur Casey thanks for sharing our shows. And four of sharing my tweets -- gorilla nation. -- there's left and -- -- okay so our next guest today. Is Matthew Dahlberg who is the honorable 111 street investments. From time to time and not turner KC show since this is a business channel and a business show. We like to bring on guests to our. Can help entrepreneurs small business owners. People with a lot of wealth people with a little little wealth kind of play and their investment. Both serve. You don't get financial advice and look towards the future and that's one of the things we forget about. When you own your own company or even if you aren't a big companies sometimes you don't claim -- the future. And there's all kinds of different things that go on and and Matthew -- has an interest in perspective at a 111 street investments. And so wanted to have him on today because they know entrepreneurs out there. Probably don't think about this enough and I think he has a unique spin on the company in what financial lies what goes into that in and what not so Matthew welcomed the show. Thanks -- -- great to see him and I know that we have. Connected through our friend Josh Evans who's on the show a few weeks ago did a great job musical Mary T and swimmers in the both of us. But. He Indian and indignities review and it's a great things about a Sony to have you on the show and looked over your web site. At a 111111. TH street. Investments dot com -- and you really heavy needs. Profile and what you do so give -- a bit about your background hate tennis turn your business and kind of what your -- he has. Sure sure well I work done lived overseas for number years more to do not want to Germany and Belgium -- enough for about -- -- years off and on through college where you -- in Germany. Southwest. Let it coupled to a different town the second one is a Karlsruhe -- which is a non. -- southwest border between Germany and France which was just. Insanely awesome I used to ride my bike in France a rose firm. Eight hours today and they I heard I got to travel or on their Germany and on and little bit my ancestors are German bills and so it's less that a bush in Munich and authority country Syria Syria times that I go watch you eat your your culture. So well although I don't know about that it's dazed and confused I guess -- a younger and it moved back here in 2004 my then wind found. I started were Kansas City -- usually give group -- in the north clients -- stomping ground and come move back your 2004. Worked for an institutional bank for about ten years serving institutional customers which is going to be mutual funds and pension funds and more on the administration side was physically mutual fund accounting and saw all their investments all different kinds of investments are strategies senator. And then a couple years ghosts tried to get my own thing going part time because I kind of decided that. I didn't really have much effect on the main street investor right. I saw with the big boys do how they play now ultimately I know all these investments benefit than normal before average people would say such ourselves. However I didn't feel like I was really -- effect on him his life. Right and then that's that's a lot of times you here that on. On the show or do you have people that have. Worked -- beer companies in Kansas City in technology Horry and coached from you know consulting work in -- and that's a throw company trend ever in the year they reach a certain age -- the guitarist kind of no purpose and then their job and bend maybe didn't they'll take less money sure in order to tap more of an effect I don't people's lives so you decided you out with. -- with your company's. It's also what about your company's. Sure well I went full time this April this was relatively -- -- -- relatively new as registered a couple of years ago that I tried to -- with part time could make it work just as a a jobless it's -- widespread. And -- but I think what we're saying and what you're saying rather about -- and a large company and decide to make delete the second piece of that I would argue is that. A person really sees how things are done and gets to see the sausage being made if you will and thinks themselves maybe I can do this little bit better then that your thumb and being part of the investment world for so many years. I saw. Not questionable things necessarily but on people are essentially sold products now institutional investors are a lot sharper. And they -- their money you're our money thank goodness a lot maybe more carefully but the average Joseph on the street the Everyman if you will. They are essentially sold products. -- yeah I've been sold products are. It was fun doing now it seems like you know you he had marked in -- mutual fund or group in. And -- fund than. Sure sure that's that's not risky though that's more of those that you know the the retirement savings so right right it's and it's not necessarily means those products are bad. I mean anything to -- commission doesn't actually means bad at all people off the competition of who works for free I like T. Too much in fact. Must the next person -- but that you might run into a conflict of interest situations where for example my business car that I just gave yields over that should or should your your your slogan here a year the other your statement on your card is. Does your broker note the F word the F four with -- Astor died yet what does that media the the F word means fiduciary. Nah I I have to be very careful on public on hand and about eighty year old grandmother. -- -- judge whether -- -- come back for a what the beneficiary wielded -- in your client's behalf interesting fix our. You know you safety issue is made up problem from the early show that -- classless and the clients express of -- can sit. A judiciary it is a stricter city Carrick and has -- the US legal says sure and use and a former lawyer all right well another survey but it -- I'm -- a little bit yes I'm just her that the main the main piece of that is a broker. Is not necessarily fiduciary. A broker dealers differ from investment advisor or investment -- -- -- registered with their state debate in which they live or various states. Or with the SEC if they have a certain amount of assets under management. Broker dealer only has to act in a person's excuse me has to offer what are called suitable investments for domestic and foreign investor and look at that -- a much wider. -- legal standard in the lower standard if you will so you've taken a higher standard here well except on the business Carmona I guess yeah. At this. Zero V that's the strictest you know fiduciary duty to your clients and it's also look at how you structure of the business the -- sure I've. There's a new generation of financial planning it's called fee only planners. What they do is today. Maintain a very strict independence and by only working -- On a fee basis per hour he's he's got elected attorney that deals with hourly fees exactly -- might scare some people off. Well I do tell my clients it's really I charge per meeting. That's because maybe part of time were obviously getting to know until especially the beginning or were asking him on each other -- whatnot. We are not going to I'm not an attorney charged in a five minute increment increment or whatnot then Don Mays mostly her meaning of. So it is so is somebody sets of a meeting with you and says any help with. The stock market tilt also lankans are hey I have. Sure 101000 dollars and I've I've saved two ways to invest -- China and -- maybe emirates jurors maybe -- how do you count. -- -- We have to delve into that and find out those questions risk -- risk tolerance. The response perspective being in both ability and willingness and people really think they're willing. And then they take it hard and it's not pleasant right I asked me to think deeply how they would feel they lost all their money and then usually become activists say you know what maybe I shouldn't do it as much. But mostly it's about getting to know them. And their circumstances their time horizon their investment goals on their goals themselves some people can't really afford to invest. And shouldn't be putting huge lump sums into any kind of market. Because for example and I'm short term savings account in their car breaks to another to promote credit card. But normally what we do is the first meeting her so. I'm sorry over it puts -- six or seven meeting is open to get their financial plan with them. But part of the work steadily on them to gather up all this documentation. And I tell my clients the first meeting I say you know bring all the documents about your finances that your comfortable sharing with me if they don't know me too well. I told him -- talking about your -- like being naked and ten and a lot of people would rather be make it -- I don't know credit. It's in -- a lot of business deal that's when they're going to deal loner you know get a venture capital funding in the -- -- Should I show every document you have sure sure and it does however right I do tell them the more you're gonna bring to these meetings to each of these mean is the better off I can help people. So they bring much paperwork don't put on my desk then they leave I charged them one meeting I go through at all do the homework if you will our right of -- recommendation for them. Provide them with -- those recommendations. -- we meet again to implement the plan if you will. -- What have you found that is and in the last -- -- the stock market is kind of rebound and I mean how's that been for business -- -- -- just started it but sure sure I think it's been great but he's been great I think it really shows the resilience of the US economy button. Being in -- hole and I guess -- Europe. European traveler on. One advantage in this is not a political -- and all but one advantage we have is our labor market is so much more flexible. And our economy as a whole is so much more dynamic. Than Europe's and I think that has now obviously with the Fed is done and everything else that's gone on the policies. On that as really. Cheney caused a -- helped us rather to adapt very carefully her very fast. Matthew tell me about like you know what type of thing maybe entrepreneur should be looking for when they're when they're deciding on these things -- me and others -- -- put all their savings and there. You know -- their company sure sure -- does so it's kind of hard to predict the future and you're saying bring all these financial statements but again like -- like me who's got his own company. You know one year can be really get when -- can be okay well I mean in order to -- that you deal with it in your business and how do we do we handle -- But that's a great question and it's really a -- or a a separate. Area I guess in terms of finance in terms of financial planning world most of my clients are entrepreneur for small business owners. Number one as you addressed the variable pay issue on the sooners have to have. More money liquid savings can. Is yes and again like laying there not enough interest to think that they're not they're not obviously you know work and a big country like -- her -- sure they know -- in the certain paycheck every -- is -- you working on -- you're -- product sales -- there -- tons of -- the second long term piece of that is.

But I mean one benefit to that is not sure you know this -- personal life like everyone once you set a good habit when they -- after thirty days it becomes a habit. Did you go to lost more -- -- more on Sagan the maximum you can take which had a I think personal visits like 5000 dollars for personal it yet depends I mean a small business owner can do now 52000 if they have sent.

When I got the job Huffington Post I sort of -- yes a lot of people -- -- and state legislatures Kansas Missouri New York North Dakota. Why don't for the book to start talking about. In state politics men as they started looking a lot at Kansas and Missouri and other states as well we -- -- we -- going on the -- -- literally I characterizes a lot of very interesting stuff going -- -- -- you know one thing we see a lot is -- on the Missouri side. Got a lot of that dynamic and very conservative legislature but a democratic governor actually Democrats having. All your most of the statewide elective offices and he got a lot of that rate from going on a lot of that. Pushing poll in Kansas one thing we see is its most twofold. One that are we had the moderate vs conservative battles on the GOP side. -- -- that's -- twelve primaries and then never conservatives have poked the ball houses of the legislature and the governorship. To see a lot of a lot of the stuff we see going on in other states this year bridge -- here in Kansas. And obviously with the tax cuts that governor Brownback and legislature pushed through school funding judicial selection. And continue believe this Republican. Are moderate conservative. Battle going on using a lot of us here in Johnson County on most particularly but also. What I think is caused a lot of people. A competitive governor's race between Sam Brownback and all -- as the -- -- it's actually a very unique and very interesting stage and I've enjoyed every moment of covering both. Ken and I are friends on the East Coast snow not near DC friends -- Washington Cecil Cooper everywhere. But a New Jersey your -- think you're crazier coming down Kansas Missouri. They are all farmers here in Italian it's a countdown -- are very basically even though I've been trying to tell them how -- hoped. You go it's gotten through that there's a lot of great parts of both states right it is not what anyone who predicts. You know a lot of great rolling kills the Flint hills have been. I hate to be biased for against us wanna see most of -- been Kansas set for the most part guys he knows among Missouri person so he knows that. You know as were my bias lies and I'm sure you'll be taken in Kansas City. The a lot of -- of the Flint hills are gorgeous right through central Kansas in a lot of great small towns like. Lucas and will seem and Greensboro. News and moans -- which are gorgeous and have a lot of great people I was an Allen -- of staying in -- historic. Hotel I was the only guests there the other night at the hotel and maybe haunted if -- not seen -- the other night. You know I've been out of western Kansas and Dodge City and so much of a lot of you met a lot of great people still want -- beautiful scenery. You like to overcome buying the other day I. Don't get that future is a -- for officer town thought if I don't let Clinton honey -- in the green no one can. I I not confirming or denying any state what it's. Good answer. So John. Tell me about Campbell have you any barbecue an effort to -- you need to -- had a lot of barbecue but none the Missouri side yet not getting it like that believe -- Oklahoma. Just -- -- is on the Kansas cipher that was the first stop. There's original yes the original in the gas station SJ. First thing you do is take -- Oklahoma Joe's had it delicious brisket ribs and have also had Hickory help barbecue and Salina. I don't at our retention number the police in Lawrence at a barbecue and I've had some really delicious steaks at right Ian Dobson the dean Allen Boyd did. All over I been. And nine you know one of the richest stuck counties in the United States and Johnson County. Which you have to go to -- in 35 street to prairie fire -- good. Mean this is all this is crazy -- you know -- how about the state line Hans it was moved here because schools originally and. And it actually built -- Johnson County have any Linux though Lee boy would. Overland Park golf for a lot of meetings had a great launch at. Hundreds chocolates here and oval on par dobbins foods in the Lexus so I've been we've been UBS deal like -- things you tell -- you gotta do that did you know the top notch places every ounce as you and against -- Yeah actually going to launch in nineteen -- at a place Sony after this not. You're the name of it but that's secondary they I'm checking it all routes so what do you think about state politics obviously a lot of business people small business owners and entrepreneurs you know. Out of date they just think about the federal government and I know that you know as a former state legislator and you obviously has done a lot of work -- cigarettes no importance. You know it's cool to see getting covered and I know one of the things and when -- were -- phone when you've worked in your other matters as you're talking more of -- state politics. It's something we try to do more business idea. So I think in you know I hate to music is cliche term the states through the innovators of compiled. Democracy beaten but they truly are -- look -- a lot of what's the government dots. It's what's impacting people on the day to day basis state governments have the ability to have a more of an impact on growing small business rolling out proportion of providing the roads and -- one of the things. When I was out in western Kansas we were talking a lot about. You know bringing in four lane highways to grow the economy grow small business out there have been talking about rural broadband Brent when I was at an Allen Boyd. You're one of the things they're charges they wanna bring you more small business they'll sort of routine. You know and -- -- -- great and a lot of young people who graduate in the just leave the area often don't come back I was in. Salina -- in key states -- campus and UAS program the KU rural medical hospital out there was at the groundbreaking for the bulk -- innovation center. The one thing when I was talking to -- since descendants the CEO of cased its Leinart or Derrek Lee is a representative out there it's how we key -- -- not only had a we bring people back how we keep them here -- it's. And that's a lot -- from the state government I think. One thing we're definitely seeing is too much dysfunction of Washington in the states you know have the ability to do so much. Get stuff done and the more connected it -- state lawmakers are more connected to the people that are represented that's what we have seen all of our camps and. And you know there's some elections don't have to hear it's an August obviously look there are more connected -- if you talked to a Khmer Kansas City. Hillbilly guy hates state governments -- -- legislators because their focus on their level. And the local and they when he gets us from the city and sometimes it's hard to get funding in Jefferson City here and to because you know so yeah it's always it's always -- -- level validates the next level but -- you know it is so important I think in Missouri ending Kansas we have -- of -- -- -- strikeout list. Economic development with technology obviously you've heard all of that I've -- talked you're off about. Entrepreneurship. And technology in in in companies in young entrepreneurs and startups and Google fiber in our we have Cisco coming to downtown and. I've seen a lot of KC metro area and it is amazing to see how much Oxford or ship and technology is going on here. Then other places just talking -- These old atom bomb is the administrator of the element -- her and he's unopposed base including called represented a black spirit. In Kansas and he he returned here from San Francisco and with his wife to try to you -- the economy bring people -- We talk a lot of liberal broad base and no one thing you know as I've been learning more more and talking to a lot of people here especially KC metro about a lot of work you've been doing. It offered or -- innovation. Ands. You know technology is. Kansas City can be a model to so many other beaches the country you -- dog went to college in the Buffalo, New York area which. Buffalo love a lot lot of other great lake -- is also a lot of cities throughout upstate New York. Is struggling -- -- -- and you know they've been doing a lot of stuff with violent fanatics with medical research for the new health sciences campus in downtown buffalo. But there's so much when you look at what's been going on here in Kansas City to compete. Replicated and brought to a lot of other cities you know when trying to sort of be this -- so I think a lot of the cities. You don't associate the Great Lakes had been. Mourning the loss of manufacturing them but also looking -- bring manufacturing back rent -- reality it's looking at. New ways to grow the economy changing yet and I think that's what we're seeing a lot here in Kansas City is -- that when I was on the -- and we're seeing a lot of that. How to not -- Kansas is trying to. Look toward innovation and rolled that in Wichita I'm hearing the same thing from Brandon Whipple -- of war -- -- -- representatives out there are so let's. John -- we have and a 45 seconds left. What's gonna happen I would tell us not to make a pro quickly of of of the country and you know -- legislators I mean is it is it turning -- attending red. Are looking into doesn't fourteenth very much gerrymandered is not everywhere I think you've learned little about Africa. Actually it's you know Democrats are really making a push this year for the Republicans are obviously remaining on defense for -- keep their state. Legislative majorities and try to keep the governorships they've got. I think -- -- state legislatures there's a couple of chambers they could flip. Part of the democratic side but I think it's just continue to lean Republican just based on the district lines were seeing. But one thing definitely I'm seeing more of -- Republicans historically have always made a lot of plays at the state and local level and -- Democrats have always focused primarily on the federal level threat I think we're seeing more more Democrats. After 2010. Making -- I think we're gonna see more competitive. State legislative elections and down ballot statewide elections where. Did very you'll John C -- thanks for coming on the show committed. The midwest you can check out more about John John -- dot com isn't easy grateful and Twitter -- as well as John Selig John -- -- -- just great to -- here they give thanks Alicea turner KC show we'll see you next week have a good.
