8:19 am
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 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, what we flip to stay by blue to me. we had a big part of it was when that just made me feel sometimes just
8:20 am
a little bit right there may change and i've seen it with mile and i was 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 very, to be on the phone speaking to a friend, believe, democrat, senate candidate to soft on crime over here. i would go for him. i wouldn't dare both to hear. it would mean to have been killed here game last year. my registrar lose a domestic violence. yeah. becky words are just now from road safety to public safety and inflation. roshay jackson tells us many voters are growing, frustrated be are so tired of it could like trying to help me. i do understand that

people need mental waves lie was talking about i work, that's just terrible. how can i live off? i can park live all day food. the current, if i was a dollar for talking about 12 aches, it is rough night. got to find some kind of tight business and in 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 democrats. but he realized at a young age that his views on abortion and faith made him a republican political 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?
8:22 am
who do you vote for or why are you a democrat? and the response 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. tender 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 a wanting to get it off if you're getting their paycheck. they don't care about the 1st. i look at the naval cd, she's going down here. got trash, year everywhere. i mean, this is just a cheery, it's time for change. democrats say that the publicans have stymied efforts to invest more in public infrastructure. but cancer is clear, he believes the democrats have failed to improve these neighborhood. we asked him about accusations of racism and the republican party and in wisconsin itself. well,
8:23 am
the tv ads attacking black senate candidates medulla barnes through the cities christmas parade. mandela barnes wants to in cash bel, completely the dangerous democrat, but that is not his phone easily with her. but once again, i'm cared 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, 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
8:24 am
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? put in that we were going to ask the question, you don't want to know why for cancer and republicans, the central issue is crime. 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. republican 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 paled in comparison to wealthier parts of the city. dora drake knows those discrepancies well. oh hey,
8:25 am
how's the democratic state assembly representative for the 11 district? hi, 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 are further on. we made 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 with me don't. i mean, don't, don't give me just mental barnes and michael's. i mean,
8:26 am
i want to be able to choose, you know, consider yes because there is a lot of what i understand. yeah. i'm willing to get this i so you can i think you guys have got a wrong, at least audio of some of the places, 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 republican 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 to create jobs right here with the bank kind of jackson or jackson lives in and out of the or out of the country. senator johnson, you have 30 to respond to that. going to stand how high the cross this is because i feel at my own gas tank, i drive myself around the state, unlike lieutenant governor barnes who is chauffeured round by state patrol, costing taxpayers over 600000 dollars. we wanted to ask him about his vision, but he didn't take questions after the debate. senator johnson also wasn't available to speak to us. i don't want to talk. i got one. okay, thank you for being here. i mean, i guess it's 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 a democratic party. but we also here skepticism towards elected officials.
8:28 am
i've 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 it could was born 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 there who talk to talk and walk to walk through a different way. continue to vote. a lot of people that i concentrate on form from a national perspective. they feel like that their vote was now hurt. but on the local level from our city council, when our judge's order means and senate are those vote scout actually the most i do encourage anyone that is register your vote and is not registered to vote . to definitely get involved right now. a message to candidates on both sides of the aisle, from a community looking for real change for the better with
