I guess there's no better time for Kate McGinty the show up in northeastern Pennsylvania. Katie McGinty is a Democrat she wants to turn up. The democratic nomination in the gubernatorial race she wants to be the democratic candidate. To run against incumbent governor. Tom Corbett. Who I need distress to Katie McGinty is absolutely. 00. No blood relative of mine Katie McGinty welcome to hard cold drudgery. You know I ask well can't we that we got a lot going on here I don't wanna stressed candy. The governor's not related to me you get that right. I did get an education and I don't know -- you may end up making 200 thank god that I knew that could be no relationship. Another time I tell this story about how I ask them when he came to Scranton on Saint Patrick's Day where these people were from. And he told me Pittsburgh. And I said no no that's not what I'm talking about and talk about all sign. I can say it honestly she didn't know and it was him saying so I offered to help him with his family trained and know. It's a difficult time not blue hey man -- it may and how well -- you might very well be cousins OK because we got the county -- up and into the mail border so we'll talk about that you're enduring good company here. With an immigrant population you're in good company here. With people who love war the coal -- you're an environmentalist. Your business woman you've got quite an impressive resume. I'd still say most people here aren't as familiar with you is they showed me what should they know getting. Sure all different it's all about -- and I think that's why cry if that proves the point and we need to god and that's -- and things like infrastructure put Pennsylvania in the water can building's foundation who are just walk infrastructure there that can enable it to compete and win but I just -- about this. When it comes to infrastructure. And we are in the midst in the city of Scranton today -- -- a major water shut down because of the break. We're -- and hills section of Scranton we've had gas crews and water crews. Did get up roads forum. More than a month. Looking for weeks where the water is -- into the gas -- the gas shot and down now we have a major water break we have -- -- -- -- where an old industrial city what should gonna be okay. And not only -- ten. OK but to follow -- -- infrastructure. You know it's something we just don't go all around to get pumped money into infrastructure like you're dealing Ager playing Pennsylvania and to work. Should get away did not -- our money away didn't investing that money can go the ambitions are still more jobs and economic opportunity she you know pitched a weakness and I tell the world where you can't control needle into the future adventures and not just in the place trying to straighten it made sure well they invent the future I think integrate into when you look at things like -- until. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Possible -- listen he's the ball. To find the balance between private and public partnerships and so we're not at odds with each other so we can find common ground -- How do you do decade. Grade a nice idea and in addition to working in the White House that President Clinton and -- And have run the business -- we have daily in the wired. Cleaning out old industrial sites and bringing you. So glad there I was up until they reach outward administration -- -- I kind of bank machine -- About public private partnership but I think that's the way to go. Why and why do you not a -- I thought I like the governor wanted -- the lottery should trying to tried everything and handover of the people that -- -- -- -- and the government think -- -- -- in the forward -- -- -- -- between -- and everybody shares that the -- everybody shares in the rewards action and -- -- who wouldn't get paid unless and until we brought you go to this. The company we were cleaning up every developed they shouldn't have to wait everybody's interest -- and yet he could win winds. The gubernatorial race obviously under way the campaigns are under way I'm not even sure. How many Democrats are vying for the nomination is is still -- major. Although I can't let me ask you might be shrinking -- actually thought I might might still want it I think people relate to somebody should not -- doubt politician then you know I had the privilege of working in the White House but a big lead and then you. -- can environmental protection here with governor Rendell obligation but I'm not a career politicians you know I'm gonna -- as. I don't engage created jobs because I think that the people look I'm sure yeah. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- When it comes soon. When it comes soon hardball politics Pennsylvania ranks right up there with though the worst of them. When it comes to political Wheeling and dealing win northeastern Pennsylvania have no peers. Powell. Powerful. Is old school politics win -- in your quest for this nomination. No idea -- I think you -- a baby -- but did you -- about stroke that I don't know is there then. -- double -- contact direction but you know again -- Big Brother Andre did -- did I hit. How do you know why -- got re establish. Good and have got to go to bed and I don't want to emphasize the -- politics -- Washington is broken the first choice of a problem that I admired you can -- the painful like doubling -- attack on the and company yeah got a good when he came back -- there is bipartisan agreement on that he and he -- turn back to a -- -- -- agreement not to -- you look at things like a Medicaid expansion 600000. Pennsylvania -- about how well the Republican governors all -- the country and yes and that should governors blah not -- not. Way to get things done and I think she -- how they would object well obviously the war but people -- good things can happen. When it comes in this race how important is money because you got eight Diebold may be the field is is narrowing. But money seems combined political love particularly in northeastern PA. How -- you approaching brazen money. And you. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- We're lost. Should probably call back I think that's just cut out. Award for her called I have a feeling she'll call she sounds like she's. Very efficient she sounds very very bright and if you take a good hard look. Should I just drop that law. There will low way for her comeback she's a very bright woman this is somebody to talk to candidates who -- come out of nowhere. Although she didn't come out of nowhere she's gonna resonate. That would -- your head around she worked with Al -- she worked with Bill Clinton she's been a part of some of the behind the scenes. Operations in terms of the environmental work. That yeah. It is absolutely. Stellar let's see if we can go again there. Theory about that I -- about infrastructure. And -- -- I'm in China and you know about the job but all of a giant but I think at least on that don't dwell on it well. -- -- -- -- is way -- we are in the midst of an ongoing federal public corruption probe appear and one calls get dropped we never know who's listening. This it's a business but I wouldn't let me bring it to that discussions. No politics in northeastern Pennsylvania and Pennsylvania did that to a large extent to a great extent. Is defined by corruption and northeastern Pennsylvania is in the midst of total. Eruption chaos we have been locked -- people all we have been indicting people and as of right now -- I think they're more than thirty former. Public -- are elected and appointed public officials. Whoever usually pleading guilty all I want to jail we we have we have our own reputation and that needs to beat. Fixed it. How how do you approach the concept of political corruption. Deal -- yeah. -- we -- reassured. That will have you worked with us to make an honest. And it's not really comfortable -- yeah -- the -- -- in the tower and didn't said that doctor obsolete intriguing but actually -- Uphold the rule of law they -- trying I'm aware of and that there and a developing country -- -- in my -- -- maybe some -- we -- nothing -- not a country of water that we -- Let me go -- the developing country -- we can't lay back and again I'd I'd be right on the barking out there -- you can see the beauty in the public's. And I think you know make a catch myself again -- they -- I think that's why we need trash and know that politics and not people who are running and thought that around throughout the drug for Bob. I'm fed didn't need. Yeah. Connection. That's different about the people who ventured into the power control everybody else and who they just and I -- politician. Yeah well you're -- this song Auld mug the Basque state police detective in the history of the world. And -- Corbett taught me that honesty is the best policy and that's why the restoration and need fostering of the public trust. Is of the utmost importance in my mind and I believe in the minds of most people in northeastern Pennsylvania getting. Brilliant guy -- -- a bad -- and people who are it's. -- good and they're willing sometimes the best agreement but they wanna see my big boys play dominated. Much dominated going to make sure that they. -- and the dignity and respect cannot peeking out on the blink yet do you wish I think and that the issue sometimes secondary. And greedy and all and -- -- -- -- -- good and bad but I -- them to play every day of my life that I have -- yeah. The word that I've been privileged to do what I can comment I would help -- bring -- and governor of Pennsylvania us. One last thing before before we let you go okay I've heard and I don't know the accuracy of this -- these debate schedule. Does not include at northeastern Pennsylvania -- noticing about that in. Welsh. And well I'm -- and I -- and thank you want a baby a mop. About 400. Don't think again just above the neck of the woods could actually like to see that we have been affected should change. But now let me know it's not a formal debate scheduled a debate we've been doing and apply or just. Don't get impatient and went good we'd like and the candidate county. I didn't know. Maybe you can gigantic organization. Together maybe illegal women voters out there and you can be moderate and -- IU IBM -- -- -- Well I'll I'll bump -- this way I'm I'm not the best moderator but I'm common good behind the scenes -- And I'll put a couple of calls in -- some -- connections. And I think did the candidates. Looked awesome and and we all would do you know turn make some kind of a forum happened and then when we invite people if they don't respond the and we know little bit more about them don't you think. I absolutely. Do and barrel and back. But I -- -- -- I would be here and I would be laid back great that by your attitude I think the better than I. Bad Belmont area and Bennett Webb they're I think we have all the good until you get the idea. A bit and went back here and maybe good things like that it can -- big the New Jersey New York. The -- -- -- -- didn't come a lot of bad I'd probably -- to talk about all that. Well look forward to hearing more from -- tuned to meeting with you were more inviting you back we're inviting you took. Take our ideas and our interest and -- incorporate them into your campaign Katie McGinty it's a pleasure to speak with you. But. And happy but I think he'd been told we'll.
