Pureval on what the Democratic party should focus after election night

1 00:00:00,550 –> 00:00:06,450 >> You know stuffing you into your new role kind of at this time Where is this inflection 2 00:00:06,450 –> 00:00:11,890 point particularly among Democrats nationally and statewide. 3 00:00:11,890 –> 00:00:17,230 Your victory comes kind of on the same day that Democrats are trying to figure out what happened in 4 00:00:17,230 –> 00:00:22,740 Virginia and why they lost that that statewide race and 5 00:00:22,740 –> 00:00:28,830 it was much closer in New Jersey than most pundits gave gave really credit 6 00:00:28,830 –> 00:00:29,880 to. Before election night. 7 00:00:30,100 –> 00:00:36,960 >> Yes. You know you mentioned like eight other AP candidates. You were Michelle who made history on 8 00:00:36,960 –> 00:00:42,830 election night winning and her winning in Boston. What do you make of this kind of this 9 00:00:42,830 –> 00:00:48,570 this angst going on in the Democratic Party right now when it has two key 10 00:00:48,570 –> 00:00:53,910 candidates here that that had made history. But there seems to be a lot more focused on you know the 11 00:00:53,910 –> 00:00:56,500 autopsy in Virginia and New Jersey. 12 00:00:57,810 –> 00:01:03,150 >> Well I mean I think we I think we need to do both as a party. I think we we do need 13 00:01:03,150 –> 00:01:08,580 to understand why messages didn’t resonate. What happened in 14 00:01:08,580 –> 00:01:15,330 Virginia in order to correct for the very important midterms coming up but at the same token the 15 00:01:15,330 –> 00:01:20,730 party should also be taking a look at how Michelle Wu was so successful in that and how we were so successful. 16 00:01:20,730 –> 00:01:23,430 I mean when you look at both races they weren’t close. 17 00:01:23,430 –> 00:01:28,680 >> The margins were historic. And and when you consider at least four for 18 00:01:28,680 –> 00:01:33,780 Cincinnati the API community here is less than three percent. And yet we 19 00:01:33,780 –> 00:01:39,660 were still able to win and win convincingly. And so that suggests to me that AAPI 20 00:01:39,660 –> 00:01:45,540 candidates can run and win anywhere. But also it suggests to me that our message of racial equity 21 00:01:45,540 –> 00:01:51,030 of growth of public safety but also justice that that 22 00:01:51,030 –> 00:01:57,320 that is a message that works across demographics and works across political parties. 23 00:01:57,510 –> 00:02:03,090 >> And so you know I think it’s important for us as a party to to analyze the wins and the losses 24 00:02:03,090 –> 00:02:08,790 . But we shouldn’t you know we shouldn’t be focused entirely on the losses. We should also be taking lessons 25 00:02:08,790 –> 00:02:14,430 from the wins. And we should also be taking a lot of a lot of momentum out 26 00:02:14,430 –> 00:02:19,920 of it. You know and let me just say this for my AAPI community my brothers and sisters we are just now 27 00:02:19,920 –> 00:02:24,420 recognizing the awesome political power and influence we have. 28 00:02:24,450 –> 00:02:29,670 >> We’ve saw it on on the world stage in 2020. And 29 00:02:29,670 –> 00:02:35,490 I’m I’m optimistic that Michelle’s and my elections will just continue to catalyze that 30 00:02:35,490 –> 00:02:40,890 growth and that engagement. And you know I know your questions about the national scene but I 31 00:02:40,890 –> 00:02:46,170 think the other big story at least locally for us is that is that Cincinnati is 32 00:02:46,170 –> 00:02:51,630 the first city in the Midwest to elect an Asian mayor. I think that’s an I think that’s an awesome 33 00:02:51,630 –> 00:02:56,730 testament to the fact that Cincinnati is a place where no matter what you look like where you’re from or 34 00:02:56,730 –> 00:03:01,740 how much money you have if you work hard you can achieve achieve your dreams. 35 00:03:01,740 –> 00:03:04,200 >> There’s no limit to what you can accomplish in our city.
