It the coverage here which was decent actually it was there was better than decent. The other Baton Rouge area Florida parishes. Debt excluding saint it and it is kind of the viewing area of listening area. Radio keeping.

But that was Beatles -- pushed through without replacement in place. The -- and all of the parish and local partners in the hospital itself. That -- the -- partnership to save it. People's lives were put at risk to -- governor Jindal political aims. I don't know that anyone think that's a good thing except him and his supporters so I'm very dubious about that.

We have actually two systems and -- no but -- no other state had that. Everybody's been moving away from that. Certainly it was controversial certainly there are people that. Did not like it certainly there -- large number of state employees who were employed they're didn't like it. They were talking about -- percent Garland which is almost within the margin of error but what the caller you know jungle as a lot of a lot of detractors to remember these 42%. Negative. Only 42% positive and in for example. Female female Democrat. -- white female Democrats plus thirty minus 64. White male Democrats she had a slight uptick -- from forty dropped to 51 why would be -- still. He's so. To -- such or court.

Agenda what to 38 because of huge cuts to the budget but there about fifteen months ago when he never has recovered -- slight slight bit. Upwards such. Do most governors in -- in their second term maintain that. Through these 60% approve route. Well it becomes more difficult because. If you -- you become.
