hm. ah, its selection season in the us, wisconsin is a swing state, could come down to the wire in the mid term. the city of milwaukee is a democratic bastion and black voters are an important pillar of support. but democrats can't take the black vote for granted this year because republicans are
4:17 pm
making inroads and voter turnout is backing. as issues like inequality, inflation, and public safety fuel frustration. sometimes to be hard to say, because i know trying to put people as much as we push the vote republican and put something new and give us a chance. ah me. it's a busy morning and franklin heights, a primarily black neighborhood in northern milwaukee. the community outreach group block is getting ready to head out and drum up support for the democrats. but 1st they break down the later evie debate in wisconsin, senate the organization has endorsed the democratic candidate, mandela bar. i feel
4:18 pm
a little bit better because he did so well in debate and everybody sigh like, i don't know, i'm not trying to be biased. i know, i'll be honest. i like, you know, it doesn't feel like we have a lot of time, but there's a lot of time for something to happen, right. they call the october surprise for everything. and anything can happen between now and election day, but i feel a little bit better. the block runs campaigns around election date and issues that impact the black community. most definitely it just is just re, re, we know who he is. we so i'm in person, we talk to him. we already knew he had it like a lack of economic opportunity or the need for criminal justice reform. this zip code has the highest rate of incarcerated black men in the us. the executive director angela lang tells us the community needs investment and attention all year round. not just during election cycles,
4:19 pm
candidates and, and parties that kind of come around august, you know, or even maybe a couple months earlier and say hey, you know, we haven't been here and 2 to 4 years. don't forget to vote for me. and that's very transactional, that doesn't work with our, with our community. people see right through that is offensive. and you're just trying to see people as votes in commodities and trying to extract as many votes out of this community as possible for your own gain. you know, it's time for brochure jackson and his team to start knocking on doors brochure. he didn't care much for politics. he started working for block 3 years ago because he needed a job. but the 2020 election and helping the democrats when made him a believer. you're used to tell me what you're comfortable with. when we flip to stay by me, we had a big part of it was when that is my, me feel sometimes just a little bit right there and it may change and i've seen it with mile and i was
4:20 pm
a part of so that's what i believe around 27 percent of milwaukee voters are black and they've helped deliver big victories or the democrats, but voter turnout in black district has declined steadily since 2012 teams. some here are asking what the democrats have done in return. what he said to be on the phone, speaking to a friend, believe, democrat, senate candidate to song on crime over here. i would go for him. i wouldn't dare vote for black remains to have been killed this year. in last year my registrar lose a domestic violence. yeah. i understand from road safety to public safety and inflation crochet. jackson tells us many voters are growing frustrated. people are so tired of it because like trying to help when they do understand that people need mental ways i was talking about i work best is
4:21 pm
terrible. how can i live off? how can i park live all day food the garden as well. it's $8.00 for home. how can i buy 12 eggs? it's just rough out here and i got to find some kind of tight dismissed. and it's like wisconsin has seen plenty of political change. joe biden won in 2020, but donald trump prevailed 4 years earlier. for some that back and forth. it's an opportunity to tip the balance cancer senate if the african american outreach director for the wisconsin republican. they opened this black community center 3 years ago. kids or family hills from haiti, and liens democrat, but he realized at a young age that his views on abortion and faith made him a republican go up to the board towards county. why many people come in here and you know, the question will be, will have, who you voted for? who the vote for? or why are you with democrats and the response?
4:22 pm
probably 99 percent of the time is well, that's all i know. and nothing is going to change that in terms of you will have at least looking to the other side of the republican side to know what is the difference. kendra's goal is to get 16 percent of the black vote in milwaukee in november's mid term compared to 12 percent last time around. at least one voter seems ready to convert. you're going to be a want to get an office if you're getting their paycheck. they don't care about the 1st. i look at the naval and look at the cd. she's going downhill. got trash, year everywhere. i mean, this is cherry, it's time for change. democrats say that republicans have stymied efforts to invest more in public infrastructure, but cancer is clear. he believes the democrats have failed to improve these neighborhoods. we ask him about accusations of racism and the republican party and in wisconsin itself, well the t. v. ads attacking black, senate candidates,
4:23 pm
medulla, barley through the cities, christmas parade. mandela barnes wants to in cash bel, completely a dangerous democrat. but that is not his phone usually with her. but once again, i'm karen about my folks that are out there that need help with alright. can i put groceries on my table for my family? can i have gas to get home from work or can i even get to work? those are the issues that i, quite frankly, only really care about is in terms of the crime. it's a crime issue. the economy and education volunteers have gathered at the community center to head out into the neighborhood and hand out flyers for republican senator ron johnson. we asked desirae what convinced her to work for the johnson campaign. she's not a passionate republican yet, but she says her generation is curious to know what else is out there. we want to
4:24 pm
know more. i really want to know why. we want to know why you're doing, why you're doing that, you do this instead. is that why you're taking away this, putting that we were going to ask question. you want to know why? for cancer and republicans, the central issue is crying. according to milwaukee media, there have been $184.00 homicide so far this year. 23 more than at this time, last year. 83 percent of the victims are black. republicans say the answer is to beef up law enforcement. yet data show that socio economic factors like access to health care and affordable housing have a big impact on crime rate. and public investment here pales in comparison to wealthier parts of the city. dora drake knows those discrepancies well. oh hey, how's the democratic state assembly representative for the 11th district?
4:25 pm
i. c how are you doing right now where she also grew up. she was a social worker in the criminal justice system to she's out knocking on doors to make sure her constituents know she's listening to them. this is where you really hear firsthand what the issues are that people are concerned about and an opportunity for you to, for at least for me to share what work has been done and is being worked on your mind. it's an approach that has worked a motors, you know her phaser and the conversation about go further on. we meet a voter who didn't want to be filmed. he's happy with dora, but not with the other democrats on the ballot. don't give me a bone when i was a boy was to meet on. i mean, don't, don't give me just mental a barnes and michael's. i mean, i want to be able to choose, you know, consider there is a lot at stake. i understand. yeah. i'm willing to get inside,
4:26 pm
so you can i think you guys have got a wrong at least audio of some of life is not apathy, but frustration folks do have his frustration but you make that. so i think it goes back to folks only coming around during election season or, you know, doing things are watered down when it comes to issues that directly impact a black community. specifically, members of that community are looking to mandela barnes to change that perception. his supporters have shown up in force for his 2nd tv debates against can senator ron johnson. it's a spirited back and forth in front of a very pro mandela barnes crowd and liberal milwaukee. but how does barnes want to address the concerns of black voters and make sure they vote and stick with the democrats? we have the green jobs right here, wisconsin,
4:27 pm
the bank on johnson or johnston who lives in an outer space or out of country. senator johnson, you have 30 seconds to respond to that until i understand how high the cross your gas is because i feel my own gas tank. i drive myself around the state, unlike lieutenant governor barnes who is chauffeur. ron bye, state patrol costing taxpayers over $600000.00. we wanted to ask him about his vision, but he didn't take questions after the debate centered johnson also wasn't available to speak to us. i don't want to talk, i got to talk to the 1st one. okay, thank you for being here with me again. if barnes wins these voters will certainly hold him to account. geez, clippers is an institution in this black neighborhood. the men we spoke to here say they're standing behind the democratic party, but we also your skepticism towards elected officials. i've
4:28 pm
seen the bare minimum, you know, a lot of these politicians be honest with you. they only stay for one thing real much, you know, rather than hearing or what's going on a community and follow up with the people in the community at some point by bone. well yeah we, we'll get some candidates that who talk to talk and walk to walk so different. why don't you to vote a lot of people that i concentrate on one from a national perspective. they feel like that their vote was now hurt. what on the local level from our city council been our judges order men's and i sent it on those votes count actually the most, i do encourage anyone that is registered and is not registered to vote. to definitely get involved right now a message to candidates on both fact that the i'm from a community looking for real change for the better
4:29 pm
