Democrats fat cats friends that -- -- -- Well without -- you're getting there any public campaign -- but that's what you will hear Democrats are actually promoting their business Spotify it's with.
Businesses Delaware democratic governor Jack mark health as.
That when it comes to improving the nation's business and company's business.
Business has no reason to look anywhere else but to democratic candidates governor welcome to the show.
I gotta admit.
You don't really hear -- bit of this and Democrats too often in the same sentence without possibly.
Well if you look around the country you -- I mean I can tell you right here in Delaware we have.
Saved the General Motors plant which had been closed to date -- in the new company that's -- automotive had dozens of choices about where to create new jobs.
They're coming to Delaware we had a refinery that closed.
-- refineries around the country -- close the one that's reopening.
Here in Delaware we got a lender Sallie Mae moving its headquarters to Delaware -- democratic governors put out a middle class success agenda.
We understand -- -- we've got to do is we've got to put ourselves into the shoes of the people who create the jobs and prosperity in the first place.
Focus in on the things that they care most about schools.
Taxes good quality of life strong connections between institutions of higher education and local -- right okay Blake Alex -- and people like Alex Sink in Florida.
Okay that is first thing you -- was a GM Bob plant that I think you've also mention Chrysler in a few years campaign stumps.
-- -- -- the message being that the Democrats are good for failed businesses but pretty tough on the ones that are successful.
Now that say that's.
And not on fact if you look around -- we've got companies in this in this solar panel business were doubling their size last year I was just in Wisconsin with Tom Barrett who's the mayor of Milwaukee.
Who is were running for governor.
With him in -- solar plant companies about hire a 150 people.
Right in his town across the across the country were helping -- small businesses medium size businesses big businesses.
Across the whole range of industries whether they're traditional industries whether they are new and industries like renewable energy.
It does those things like the Democrats wanna pick winners and losers are you mentioned solar -- now I have to go to number energy no now actually actually not at all.
Actually not at all that the best thing is what we're not picking industries -- we're creating an environment where businesses can succeed.
Across the whole range of industries we love business in general.
Well -- I think actually picking winners picking winners and losers is actually a mistake because.
There's a good chance you pick rocks all we'd rather do it would rather leave it up to the entrepreneur doors to the business -- to figure out.
Where can -- be most successful -- governor.
The market when you say the things that you're saying right now this sounds like at the personal point of view does not sound like.
It's part of the party platform certainly is not what we've seen a.
-- -- -- -- I died I actually I did respectfully disagree and if you take a look at the Democratic Governors Association this year.
-- put out a middle class success agenda focused right on meeting people where they are how to create jobs how to improve schools how to help people prepare for retirement.
We know it's all about jobs these days that's why people like.
Tom -- written in Illinois whether it's people like John Lynch New -- two -- a great job Ted Strickland.
In Ohio are inheriting an absolute catastrophe from the bush years but focus now on creating jobs and all these states.
Governor before I let you guys I have to ask you about your infamous race there -- the -- that race and the new old battle that I'm not a witch -- What what do you what do you make of the -- and what do you think is going on here with this campaign.
-- -- I'm not sure there's anything I can really say about Christine O'Donnell that she hasn't said first supple what's happened here -- this has happened across the country Republicans tend to be nominating these people.
Way out on the far right -- in this case a good chance that the -- ultimate winner here.
It's going to be an excellent democratic guy who has real credentials creating jobs and Chris cannons and we're seeing the same thing.
And governors' races across the country where the Republicans have can finally nominated these folks.
Florida the right leaving an opportunity for -- -- they oriented -- what do you think so far that he has been treated fairly by the media.
-- -- -- Christine O'Donnell actually hasn't -- out -- with the media very often I think there was a show the other night they were trying to interviewer they they were able to find Christians talk about.
His plans but I'm not sure she's actually been out.
In the media -- she originally had said she would not talk with the national media anymore.
Because she wanted to talk to local media think the local media have found her a little bit difficult to fly but in the meantime.
We've got a great candidate Chris Cairns at castle worthy candidate though would you pick him over -- I actually believe -- Christians would have had a great shot shot of winning congressman castle very distinguished term in office.
Eighteen years in congress eight years as governor.
Four years as lieutenant governor Tom in the state senate before that.
Very popular very well respected I think it would have been a heck of a race -- obviously.
Much closer but -- in and I feel badly frankly for him.
That is career ended the way that they really serve the people of Delaware with this thing over but it may have if you wanted to primary thing you would be supporting him right now.
Don't know I think supporting because -- a Democrat in the Democrat.
But that's certainly you know Mike Castle is a is a good person he was a good public service of -- public servant for many years.
Well governor I really hope some of the things you talked about on this show do reverberate within your party if at and become more than just lip service I appreciate your time tonight.
A -- I think -- well I think it's for real it already.
