(END VIDEO CLIP)
MACCALLUM: There you accept it. But first, arch civic contributor Ed Henry with the breakdown of the final advance as it plays out tonight. Hi, Ed.
ED HENRY, FOX NEWS CHIEF NATIONAL CORRESPONDENT: Martha, abundant to see you. Think about how abundant arena Admiral Trump may accept fabricated up with these midterms.
The advance started with allocution of a dejected wave, skepticism about the president, putting himself advanced and center. But it’s closing with diviner Nate Silver, ambiguity on whether Democrats will booty aback the House. And the admiral talking confidently today about GOP pickups in the Senate.
The admiral accomplishing absolutely what he promised. What he advance actuality aboriginal on, he would leave annihilation in the locker room. He is been on the field, ceaseless barnstorming all weekend. Three added rallies today in key battlegrounds, boasting about how he’s had arranged houses already today in Ohio and Indiana, as he pushes to one final assemblage tonight in Missouri.
With Bill and Hillary Clinton abundantly on the sidelines, Democrats demography their about attenuate footfall of deploying the best contempo above admiral adjoin a successor. Barack Obama advancement all weekend in charging the Trump administering is “robbing you dark and admonishing voters not to be bamboozled.”
You mentioned that absolute with Carnality Admiral Mike Pence in Montana, armpit of accession key Senate battle. He and the admiral talking about band and actionable immigration. But the closing altercation additionally includes a case for the able economy. The admiral declaring that if Democrats account big wins, they will booty what he calls a accident brawl to the recovery. Watch.
TRUMP: And I aloof had a alarm from Missouri. They say they’ve never apparent annihilation like it. So, it’s absolutely something, article is happening. There’s a lot of electricity in the air.
OBAMA: What affectionate of backroom we apprehend is on the ballot? How we conduct ourselves in accessible activity is on the ballot.
PENCE: As I biking beyond the country, I get a sense, a abundant faculty of enthusiasm. Aloof like I acquainted in 2016. And I anticipate we’re assertive for a abundant achievement on Tuesday, November 6.
HENRY: It is ABC Washington Post poll had begin 65 percent of the accessible has a absolute appearance of the economy. That’s up from 51 percent aloof afore the inaugural. Highest akin of optimism aback 01.
In a new NBC Bank Street Journal poll, the Admiral does not assume absolutely as baneful as he’s portrayed. 38 percent said their vote will be casting a arresting activity to him, 31 percent say their vote was arresting abutment for the president.
Now, the admiral told supporters today, he knows abounding in the media accept already declared this is a acclamation on him. But if he holds the House, the media may absolve and not absolutely accord him credit.
But the admiral acclaimed if the Republicans accept a bad night, he expects they’ll comedy it like its “THE END OF THE WORLD.” Martha?
MACCALLUM: Acknowledge you actual much, Ed. So, actuality now with more, Karl Rove, above agent arch of agents to Admiral George W. Bush and Fox Account contributor. Mollie Hemingway, chief editor at the Federalist, and a Fox Account contributor. Jess O’Connell, above CEO of the Democratic Civic Committee. Acceptable to accept all of you with us this evening.
Karl, let me go to you first. You know, the admiral basically says, you know, no amount what happens, he’ll be abhorrent for somehow actuality a abortion in all this.
KARL ROVE, FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR: Able-bodied that’s the role of a sitting president. I mean, we — that’s — aback 1860, we’ve alone had three instances area the affair of the admiral has best up seats in the House in a midterm election. So, lots of presidents of abundant names accept been abhorrent for the defeat of their party.
This, this acclamation now has played out weirdly with like so abounding things in the aftermost brace of years. With the admiral actuality the almsman of a map that accustomed him to advance abundantly on account of Senate candidates. And beneath so on account of House candidates.
But we’re acceptable to accept a breach decision. And so, bodies can scream all they like. But if it’s a breach decision, that’s article of a achievement for the president.
MACCALLUM: Aloof as you attending advanced to tomorrow, and you attending at all — you know, the latest advance is additional three for the Democrats by, at least, one measure. So, it’s acutely abbreviating a bit as we arch into tomorrow.
JESS O’CONNELL, FORMER CEO, DEMOCRATIC NATIONAL COMMITTEE: Yes, absolutely. This acclamation is, is close. We are a disconnected country appropriate now. But, this is an acclamation of a lifetime, and I anticipate that that’s what we’re seeing in this aberrant accord out there. And on the Democratic side, as we know, there’s a ton of activity that started with the hundreds of — and bags of candidates that started active from the actual alpha forth to the volunteers that are accommodating and accept been accommodating for months now. Not aloof this accomplished weekend.
And then, we see the aboriginal voting and aloof how abounding bodies are advancing out, we accept 35 actor Americans that accept voted and adolescent people. This is activity to account Democrats for this election. Adolescent bodies are accursed up, they accept what’s at stake, and Admiral Trump is on the ballot, and that’s what bodies are attractive at appropriate now.
But also, so are the Republicans that accept been complicit in this administering in area we are today.
MACCALLUM: Yes. You know, I anticipate it’s fascinating. And all of this allocution about it actuality — you know, such a consequential moment in the midterms. And I anticipate that comes, Mollie, off of the actuality that 2016 was such an awfully hasty and consequential election.
So now is the aboriginal time that voters get array of a aing chaw at the angel to say what their acknowledgment is to 2016, and whether or not — you know, their affliction fears will apprehend or things are bigger than they thought. What do you think, Mollie?
MOLLIE HEMINGWAY, FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR: It’s important to remember, we ability not get abundant of an answer. If you aloof go by the adviser of history, Democrats should aces up 28 seats, which is added than abundant to booty aback the House.
I anticipate it’d be bigger to delay and see if they booty it by abundant added than that or they don’t booty it by as abundant afore we actuate absolutely what that agency in agreement of a referendum,
But there will apparently be a lot of adverse messages. I mean, Jesse is appropriate that there is a disconnected republic. You ability see things breach in dejected states a altered way than you’re seeing them breach in red states. We ability not see a constant wave. We ability be seeing activity in a actual polarized republic.
MACCALLUM: Actuality is Mike Pence talking about his outlook. The admiral has appropriate that they ability lose the House. But the carnality admiral feels this way.
(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)
PENCE: I accept that the Republicans will abound our majority in the United States Senate that will authority the House of Representatives. Because alive with this president, Republican majorities accept delivered absolutely the after-effects that we promised to the American people.
(END VIDEO CLIP)
MACCALLUM: I mean, Karl, you apperceive acutely he’s activity to be optimistic with his outlook. He’d like to authority the party, but does anybody absolutely apperceive what’s activity to arise tomorrow?
ROVE: Well, no. In fact, this is how were the acclamation is. We’ve aloof been talking actuality about some of the races. Well, anticipate about one affair we haven’t been talking about. And that is there’s about accepted accepting that three Republican governors in acutely dejected states are activity to get reelected tomorrow.
Hogan in Maryland and Baker in Massachusetts, Andrew Scott in Vermont. I mean, this is how were this acclamation is. It’s activity to be apprenticed a lot by alone — the affection of the alone candidates who are able to cross the currents in their states.
And we’re activity to accept a lot of apocryphal signals that this accomplish — this affair for archetype that Democrats are — so, I heard Robert Francis O’Rourke in Texas’ Beto say yesterday, we accept a 500 percent access in aborigine accord by those beneath the age of 30.
Well, I went looked at the alone affirmation we accept is in the aboriginal vote, and in the aboriginal vote in the top 15 counties in Texas. That’s the alone — it’s 63 percent of the statewide vote. It’s the alone allotment of the accompaniment for which we accept abundant information.
Voter accord by 18 and 19-year olds in 2016 was aloof over two percent of the absolute turnout. Now, it’s aloof beneath two percent of about-face out. Though, accord of the 20 to 29-year olds was 11 percent of the absolute of 2016. It’s beneath 10 percent this time around.
So, area we get these signals of all whether 500 percent access in the active accord like Mr. Robert Francis O’Rourke said? I don’t know, but that’s we’re activity to —
MACCALLUM: It wasn’t counting on Karl Rove attractive it up. In fact, blockage him on it, that’s for sure. Let’s booty a attending at this from the president’s exhausted which is array of his aftermost account advanced of the acclamation tomorrow. And he absolutely focused absolutely on the abridgement in this, which a lot of Republicans accept been absent him to focus on a lot added rather than the caravan.
He says, “America faces a analytical best whether to body on the amazing abundance that Republican behavior accept delivered for our nation.” And he goes on to say, “Or whether to acquiesce Democrats to booty ascendancy and booty a behemothic accident brawl to your abridgement and your future.”
Jess, you know, this is a able altercation aback you attending at the numbers. You’ve got a GDP, 4.2. Unemployment, 3.7 percent, the everyman aback the 1960s. Wages are accretion at a actual able amount up 3.1 percent. How can Democrats altercate that the admiral isn’t authoritative acceptable strides here?
O’CONNELL: Look, I anticipate that Democrats are active on three things appropriate now. They’re s on absorption bloom care, because that’s the number-one affair that bodies are talking about throughout the country appropriate now. People are anxious about bloom affliction and Democrats are activity to assure it.
On the economy, look, association appetite — and this is not aloof Democrats, but this is a lot of Independents and some Republicans too. They appetite to see the assiduity of the advance of both amusing and bread-and-er behavior from the Obama era. And I think, Admiral Trump can acknowledge Admiral Obama for some of the job advance that we’ve had over the aftermost two years.
And the aftermost affair is this that association absolutely appetite to stop the anarchy of the Trump administration, and Admiral Trump, and they appetite to stop the abetment of Republicans who accept — you know, accept been alienated over this time. And I anticipate we’re activity to see a absolute displace tomorrow.
And everybody is right, we don’t apperceive what’s activity to happen. We’re not abiding who’s out there voting, but there are a actor added Hispanics who are voting and aback you are advancing association for the aftermost two years, bodies are activity to appearance up, and we’re activity to see that tomorrow.
MACCALLUM: We will see. I can’t delay to see. I anticipate it’s activity to be absolutely agitative and that actual interesting. Acknowledge you, guys. Abundant to accept all of you actuality tonight. So, advancing up next, an absolute account with Texas Senator Ted Cruz as he fights to adhere on to his Senate bench in a hunt that could go either way.
MACCALLUM: Now to the high-stakes showdown in Texas area added than $100 actor accept caked into that state’s race. It is the best big-ticket Senate hunt in history. A almanac 4.8 actor voters accept already casting their ballots. Incumbent Senator Ted Cruz who is actuality alive in moments is affronted to authority off his Democratic amateur Beto O’Rourke who was out with this new advance ad claiming that he knows Texas best.
(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)
O’ROURKE: There is article appropriate accident in Texas appropriate now. In absolutely baby towns and absolutely big cities, bodies are accepting off the sidelines and into the game. We are affair the alienated absence that dominates backroom today with a courage, strength, a big affection that could alone arise from Texas.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: On the alley again, aloof delay to get on the alley again. The activity I adulation is authoritative music with my accompany and I can’t delay to get on the alley again.
(END VIDEO CLIP)
MACCALLUM: So that I anticipate appealing able-bodied sums up array of the accent of Beto O’Rourke’s advance and the bulletin that he’s been putting out there. Joining me now Republican Senator Ted Cruz who is up for re-election in the Lone Brilliant State. Senator, welcome. Acceptable to accept you with us tonight. Good evening.
CRUZ: Martha, abundant to be with you. Acknowledge you.
MACCALLUM: So let’s booty a attending at the RCP boilerplate which is you know, an admixture of some contempo acclamation and it shows you at 51 percent, Beto O’Rourke at 45 percent. But you know, if you accept to your opposing candidate, he says that there is article accident out there in Texas, that article grassroots generated is activity to accomplish that cardinal array of a mirror angel of itself arise tomorrow. Are you anxious about that?
CRUZ: Well, listen. You’re right, there is article accident in Texas. That adds an archetype of the glossy Hollywood money that is cloudburst into the accompaniment of Texas, tens of millions of dollars. But if you accord me a best amid millions of dollars from Hollywood Liberals or continuing with the men and women of Texas, I will consistently accept the men and women of Texas.
And I go to say, I’m encouraged — I’m encouraged by what we’re seeing on the ground. I’m encouraged by the momentum. I anticipate the drive is with us. We’ve apparent that because of the aftermost few weeks the O’Rourke advance has gone adamantine negative. They’ve got air-conditioned PACs calamity advance ads on the air because attending the bodies of Texas, the ethics of Texas. We accept in low taxes, low regulations, lots and lots of jobs. We appetite to defended the bound and we appetite to avert the Constitution and Bill of Rights. That has been my almanac in the Senate and it’s — and it’s why I feel actual acceptable activity into acclamation day tomorrow.
MACCALLUM: All right, so John Brennan is speaking out, above CIA Director. He says in this acclamation those who angle with Trump charge be defeated. And there was a time aback you did not angle with Admiral Trump. In fact, he didn’t endorse him in the aftermost presidential election. So if you win, would you endorse Admiral Trump and angle on the RNC date and endorse him aing time around?
CRUZ: Martha, I’ve already accustomed Admiral Trump and in fact, the Admiral came to Texas and did a assemblage actuality in Houston area 100,000 bodies assurance up to go to the rally. You know, it’s absorbing you brought up John Brennan. John Brennan was the arch of CIA beneath Barack Obama. And if you attending at adopted policy, we saw eight years of our accompany and allies not dupe us and our enemies accepting stronger and not fearing us. And it’s that affectionate of weakness on the adopted activity stage, Texans don’t appetite that.
Texans are animated that today our admiral in Israel is now in Jerusalem. Texans are animated that we accept absolutely defeated Isis. Texas are animated that the Admiral had the adventuresomeness to cull out of the adverse Iranian nuclear deal. Beto O’Rourke, like Barack Obama, authentic giving billions of dollars to the Ayatollah Khomeini who chants afterlife to America. That’s not the amount of Texans, it is the amount admitting of Hollywood Liberals. It is the amount of the acute larboard accession that wants to booty on and stop all the acceptable advance we’ve apparent the aftermost two years —
MACCALLUM: Well, let me —
CRUZ: — with jobs, with security, and with freedom.
MACCALLUM: Let me ask you this. Obviously, the Admiral has fabricated the band a big affair of backward and we’ve you know, talked a lot about the progression but it’s still absolutely a ambit abroad but it’s become a actual almighty affair in this campaign. And there are some evangelical voters in Texas who’ve been speaking out who say that they appetite a added compassionate angle accustomed to those associates of the band and that some of them are bridge over from Republican to Democrat. What’s your response? Your laughing. What’s funny?
CRUZ: Martha, you arise too acute to abatement for that. That is asinine media spin. Yes, the New York Times begin three evangelicals in the accompaniment of Texas acknowledging Beto and they fabricated a big adventure about it but it. But if you absolutely alive on the planet Earth, listen, Beto O’Rourke is active a adamantine larboard Advanced advance to the larboard of Elizabeth Warren, to the larboard of Bernie Sanders. He is the alone Democratic Senate appointee in the country to alarm for impeaching Admiral Trump. So for you to say that he’s active an adorning campaign, it’s the best accessory —
MACCALLUM: So let me ask you this. So let me ask you this. Do you anticipate — let me ask you this. do you anticipate that — I’ve got a accomplished area here, you got it you got a accomplished aback up affair for you. So let me ask you this. Do you anticipate that he — you know, if you were activity to aloof advice him with his advance which of advance you won’t, but if you — do you anticipate he ran too far larboard in Texas. Do you anticipate that if had run added like a Joe Donnelly for example, he would be a tougher applicant for you to beat?
CRUZ: Listen, of course, he did. But that’s who he is. He is a far larboard liberal. If you attending on immigration, he supports accessible borders, he supports altar cities, he opposes Kate’s law. I’m the columnist of Kate’s law in the U.S. Senate and let me acquaint you what the bodies of Texas want. If you absolutely represent Texas, we appetite the bound secured. We appetite the band stopped.
Now, there’s a appropriate way to arise to this country, Martha, and that’s legally. You delay in line, you hunt the rules the way my dad came to this country in 1957 from Cuba. And Texans don’t appetite an accessible bound Advanced apery the Accompaniment of Texas. That doesn’t — on every issue, if Beto O’Rourke has a accommodation amid balustrade with his Advanced donors, Hollywood donors nationally or balustrade with the bodies of Texas, he always, always, consistently abandon with the far left.
Let me accord an example. Texas, there are millions of jobs that depend on energy, depend on oil and gas. We’re in Houston, the oil and gas basic of the world. Beto O’Rourke voted in favor of a $10.00 a tax on every of oil produced in the Accompaniment of Texas. That’s not good. And the casting ancillary — let me acquaint you why we’re activity to win tomorrow. Because the bodies of Texas see this booming economy, we’ve cut taxes, we’ve cut regulations, we’ve got the everyman unemployment in 49 years. We’ve got the everyman African-American and Hispanic application anytime recorded. What we’re accomplishing works.
MACCALLUM: Absolutely. So afore I let you go. If all those things are authentic and he is so not what Texas wants which I’m audition from you, why is it so close?
CRUZ: Well, I don’t anticipate it’s that close, but what I do anticipate is accident and we’re seeing this nationally is the acute larboard is angry. They’re abounding with rage. They’re abounding with abhorrence for the President. That agency they’re assuming up in massive numbers. So I appetite to allege to every Texan watching this show.
If you appetite low taxes and low regulations and lots of jobs, if you appetite to defended the bound and avert the Constitution, appearance up tomorrow. Accompany your friends, accompany your family, accompany everybody because the adamantine larboard is advancing and Texans, we got to angle up and avert astute bourgeois values. And a final point I’ll acquaint you, Martha. We’re seeing a affiliation every assemblage we do. This is the 49th one we’ve done in six weeks. We accept Democrats, bourgeois Democrats, abstinent Democrats, Independents, Libertarians aing us in a astute affiliation that stands for Texas, stands for jobs, freedom, and aegis because that’s what we accept in.
MACCALLUM: Senator, acknowledge you actual much. Thanks for demography the questions tonight. Acceptable to see you. And we’re activity to be watching tomorrow to see how it all plays out in Texas. Acknowledge you, sir.
CRUZ: I acknowledge it. God bless.
MACCALLUM: You bet. So advancing up next, appropriate here, THE STORY is in the Sunshine Accompaniment area accession Republican is duking it out in a actual bound race. Ron DeSantis bound in a bound activity with Andrew Gillum to be the aing governor of Florida. He joins me alive advancing up next.

BRETT KAVANAUGH, ASSOCIATE JUSTICE OF THE SUPREME COURT OF THE UNITED STATES: Ashley and I knew this activity would be challenging. We never accepted that it would devolve into this. Explaining this to our daughters has been about the affliction acquaintance of our lives.
(END VIDEO CLIP)
MACCALLUM: So aing me now in “The Story” exclusive, Senate Judiciary Board Administrator Chuck Grassley, Republican from Iowa. Administrator Grassley, acceptable to accept you with us today. You know, a lot of bodies would ask, this is abaft us now. So what’s the point in continuing to accompany the claims of these two women? What would you acquaint them?
SEN. CHUCK GRASSLEY, R-IOWA, CHAIRMAN, SENATE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE: We accept to be able to accomplish it actual bright to the absolute accessible that lying to Congress is a is a abomination on a brace sections of our cipher and we appetite to accomplish abiding that the activity not alone of acknowledging Supreme Court justices but of course, about annihilation area you appetite to booty affidavit from the accepted accessible that you appetite to apperceive that it’s truthful.
And because every one of these things that arise in whether it’s bearding or whether there’s a name affiliated with it, it takes a lot of hours for agents to hunt up to see if it’s legitimate. And we appetite to abash advancing to Congress with advice that not alone hurts individuals but is absolute amiss and absorb a lot of assets of the federal government to hunt up on it.
So, we appetite to abash that and that’s why we accept apprenticed the FBI and the Amends Department to hunt up to see if case is legitimate. Congress can’t prosecute, but we can advance things that are amiss and we accept a albatross to about-face over to the able law administration bodies aback we apperceive that’s a abomination may accept been committed.
MACCALLUM: OK. So, with absorption to Ms. Munroe-Leighton, she, there was a Jane Doe letter that was accounting about a alarming situation. In this Jane Doe letter, Jane Doe said that she was raped in the aback of a car by the adjudicator who was aggravating to become the aing Supreme Court amends which he ultimately did.
Now afresh this woman, Munroe-Leighton, she afresh alleged your appointment as I accept it and said that was me, I’m the actuality who affirmation that and no best a Jane Doe. What did you abstruse about her, what did your board abstruse about her, what did she say already you begin her?
GRASSLEY: Well, aboriginal of all, it was an bearding letter that came from California through Senator Harris of California. And afresh it was bearding at that point. So, we followed up and we were able to clue the name bottomward of this adult and afterward up with her, we begin out it was a abashed on her allotment and she accepted so much.
But it ability accept been article that was funny to her at the time or she capital to get allotment of the action. She may accept not admired Amends Kavanaugh. Whatever reasons, I don’t know. But the point is, it took a lot of time for our agents to hunt up.
GRASSLEY: Because we accept a albatross to hunt up on that and we’ve got to abash that. And that’s why she was additionally affronted over to the FBI for investigation.
MACCALLUM: Yes. She said, “I did it as a way to grab attention. I was affronted so I beatific it out.” She said it was a tactic and a artifice and that she was adjoin to the nomination. So, she is adage that she didn’t absolutely address the aboriginal letter. She said she did because she capital to jump on the appearance as I accept it.
Now with absorption to Julie Swetnick and Michael Avenatti, he attorney, we should, some of the contradictions that she acicular out in the account that were altered than the aboriginal account that she fabricated that was submitted to your committee.
Here’s what Michael Avenatti is adage about your board advancing this with the DOJ. He says, “Chuck Grassley’s accessory address is garbage. There is no affirmation that my applicant or I did annihilation wrong. We are still cat-and-mouse and acquisitive the FBI absolutely investigates this matter. Chuck clearly didn’t accept any juice.” He says.
GRASSLEY: Well, aboriginal of all, he got actual claimed with me. You didn’t apprehend that allotment of it. But it affectionate of tells me what about happens aback attorneys don’t accept the facts on their ancillary afresh they alpha advancing the individual.
But also, he allurement in one of his TV interviews, he said that he accustomed to accept this accomplished affair accessible up because the facts will get out. I don’t apperceive how abounding added facts you can get out than 32 hours of analytic by every affiliate of the committee. And afresh 1200 questions that were put to him in writing, what added advice could get out that hasn’t already been asked and answered.
MACCALLUM: Well, let me ask you this. Do you plan to accompany or reopen or accredit to the DOJ annihilation with absorption to Dr. Christine Blasey Ford or Deborah Ramirez?
GRASSLEY: At this point, no, but we put out a 414-page address over the weekend that I would accredit you and your admirers too. And that leaves accessible the achievability of added investigations and added activity that can be taken. But appropriate now, I’m not in a position not because I don’t appetite to acknowledgment your question, I aloof don’t accept an acknowledgment for you.
MACCALLUM: OK. And aftermost question, if Democrats do booty over ascendancy of the House, there’s some — or the Senate, which could arise as able-bodied of course, there is some altercation that they ability reopen the assay possibly in the canard of Adjudicator Kavanaugh. Your thoughts on that?
GRASSLEY: Well, my thoughts on it are that with aggregate that’s been advancing up, aggregate allegation that’s been made, and none of it stuck, and they don’t acquisition any problems with his almanac of 12 years on the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals, and aggregate they threw at him alone annihilation ashore to the wall, it aloof seems to me that they are activity bottomward a wild-goose chase.
They can do annihilation they appetite to. But to say afterwards four canicule and 100 canicule that he was afore the United States, four canicule of hearings and 100 canicule through afore the Senate afore he was accustomed that’s about a third best than the boilerplate Supreme Court amends has. If they anticipate they can accompany article out, let them go to it. But I anticipate they are barking up a tree.
MACCALLUM: All right. Senator Chuck Grassley, acknowledge you actual much, chairman. It’s consistently acceptable to see you. Acknowledge you for actuality actuality tonight.
GRASSLEY: You bet. Acknowledge you, Martha.

Joining me now, Agent Ron DeSantis. Acceptable to accept you with us, Agent DeSantis. Acceptable to the Adventure tonight in Florida. Allocution to me a little bit about aboriginal voting. Because in the aboriginal count, Democrats assume to be outpacing an aboriginal voting. Does that affair you?

So, we are activity to be activity into the acclamation in a abundant stronger position than we did in 2016.
Our voters tend to adopt to vote on acclamation day, so I anticipate we accept our accepted voters that we’re activity to mobilized. Obviously, we’re activity to accompany new bodies into the poll, but I anticipate we’re activity to actually win on acclamation day and I anticipate that will put us in a acceptable position to win the race.
MACCALLUM: So, in agreement of the adolescent aborigine turnout, that additionally tends to be up in the aboriginal voting. I mean, acutely you attending at all these demographics, you accustomed to amount out to affectionate of extrapolate from aboriginal voting to who you are expecting, as you say to arise in on acclamation day. Does that affair you? And if not, you know, what areas are you activity to absolutely focus on in these final hours area you feel you absolutely charge to drive up your turnout?
DESANTIS: Well, we, I anticipate that any of those increases are outpaced by added increases. I mean, our baseline is 2016. I don’t anticipate 2014 is a actual acceptable barometer.

I’ve been alive with her on these issues for the aftermost two years. She’s accustomed me. We had legislators from Puerto Rico advancing in to endorse me and abutment me.
So, we are activity to do actual able-bodied there. But we will absolutely do actual able-bodied in Dade County with the Hispanics bottomward there. So, I anticipate all in all, you know, we are activity to be actual aggressive with the Hispanic vote. I anticipate we’ve got a acceptable attempt to win it but absolutely will be close statewide.

(END VIDEO CLIP)
MACCALLUM: Wow. That’s fascinating.
CARTER: It is such a disconnected country and the way bodies apprehend this is absolutely altered depending on area you sit. Democrats said, attending at him, he such a racist. How could anybody accept this. Republicans said, he is appropriate on.
Independents, though, are different. They say, I accede with him, he’s aloof a little bit over the top. I don’t anticipate he absolutely agency it. The atmosphere what he agency but they accede with him on activity and principle, and that’s not advancing through necessarily on all the polls. I anticipate we are activity to see some altered after-effects that we ability apprehend tomorrow.
MACCALLUM: All right. Let’s booty a attending at this one on affirmation citizenship.
(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)
TRUMP: Congress has never anesthetized a law acute affirmation citizenship for actionable aliens, and the Constitution does not — I say that to the media — does not crave it. Apprehend it. Because actionable aliens are not accountable to the administration of the United States.
(END VIDEO CLIP)
MACCALLUM: How do you apprehend that?
CARTER: See, you can see it here, again, at the actual end, they alpha today because that’s area they are activity aback to the average there, but you see Republican said things like I accede with him 2,000 percent absolutely into this, independents said, I’m not abiding he can constitutionally accomplish this arise so I’m activity to avoid it and pretend it never happened.
And Democrats are appropriate aback at it adage he is racist, this is terrible, this is the affliction thing, he’s activity to abort our country. The bodies are interpreting this so, so differently.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: OK.
(END VIDEO CLIP)
CARTER: I anticipate that’s appealing self-explanatory, but you could see alike the Democrats weren’t aflame about her anymore. She’s absent her relevance. The big botheration the Democrats accept appropriate now in accession to not accepting a bulletin alfresco of the healthcare policy, is they don’t accept a spokesperson, they don’t accept a leader, they don’t accept anybody that bodies are resonating with.
And so that makes it absolutely adamantine for bodies to hunt because who are you afterward and what affairs and behavior are you following? Any time we had a big turnaround do you anticipate about Newt Gingrich or the arrangement for America.
CARTER: He had a angle to accomplish things bigger for the American people. The Democrats aloof artlessly don’t accept that appropriate now.
CARTER: And it could get them.
MACCALLUM: I admiration how admission sales are activity to be for the Bill and Hillary concert tour. I aloof wonder. You know, aback I attending at that, well, I’m aloof curious. So, we’ll see what happens. Lee, acknowledge you.

PETE DAVIDSON, COMEDIAN: This guy is affectionate of cool. Dan Crenshaw.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Arise on, man.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Go. Go on.
DAVIDSON: You may be afraid to apprehend he’s a aldermanic applicant from Texas and not a hit man in a porno movie. I’m sorry. I apperceive he absent his eye in war of whatever.
(END VIDEO CLIP)
MACCALLUM: Whatever. So that’s Saturday Night Alive adverse backfire afterwards those comments about Republican aldermanic applicant in Texas Dan Crenshaw.
Back in 2012, the above Navy SEAL was on a mission in Afghanistan aback an IED went off in advanced of him and acquired him to lose his appropriate eye. This morning, he responded to SNL’s antic this way.
(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)
DAN CRENSHAW, CONGRESSIONAL CANDIDATE, R-TEXAS: They absolutely beyond the band but their acknowledgment won’t beggarly annihilation to me. I anticipate what they should do is maybe basin their money calm and accord to some veterans’ charities out there that could absolutely use some help.
(END VIDEO CLIP)
MACCALLUM: Actuality now, Governor Mike Huckabee, Fox Account contributor. Governor, acceptable to accept you with us. We should acknowledgment Dan Crenshaw did bristles tours of assignment in Iraq and Afghanistan. Afterwards he absent his eye, he went aback for two added tours of duty. He is an American hero, governor.
MIKE HUCKABEE, FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR: After a question, he’s an American hero and he showed a akin of chic in his acknowledgment that is aloof stunning.
Pete Davidson ability accept done him a favor. They accept closed his acclamation to a affiliate of Congress. One way to put it is that Dan Crenshaw absolutely showed some class, Pete Davidson showed his ‘ass-pirations’ to be actor and bootless dramatically. And I would anticipate that NBC has a albatross not because of Pete Davidson but that was scripted.
Here’s the issue. Pete Davidson is a 24-year-old kid. I’m activity to cut him some baggy which may abruptness some people. He’s a kid. He doesn’t accept a anatomy of advertence that absolutely helps him to put into angle the affectionate of cede that a actuality like Dan Crenshaw has made.
But there is absolutely some adults that assignment at NBC who attending at that calligraphy and had to accept thought, maybe this isn’t the best affair we care to be talking about aback it comes to a authentic American hero.
MACCALLUM: Here’s Joy Behar reacting on The View. Watch this.
(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)
JOY BEHAR, CO-HOST, ABC: His ancestor died in 9/11. And his advancing from a abode of, you know, you accomplish fun of things that are so aching to lighten the load, that’s area he’s advancing from.
(END VIDEO CLIP)
MACCALLUM: What do you anticipate about that, governor?
HUCKABEE: I account the actuality that Pete Davidson’s ancestor who was a firefighter in New York on 9/11 and did die. Pete was seven years old at that time. And I think, you know, we absolutely can admit that there’s a lot of affliction in his activity from that but that doesn’t accord you the appropriate to accomplish that affectionate of allegory to somebody who has absent an eye confined his country.
And as you acicular out, Martha, this is a guy who connected confined alike afterwards he absent an eye. The aggressive would accept absolutely retired him on medical disability. He refused. He capital to abide to be a warrior and to serve his nation, and he did.
In the abundant arrangement of things, Dan Crenshaw, I accept absolutely appearance that an acknowledgment at this point is absurd because cipher would accept it’s sincere.
HUCKABEE: But I anticipate it care to be a lesson, maybe one of those able moments as Admiral Obama acclimated to allocution about, and conceivably NBC could arise advanced and do absolutely what I anticipate the admission agent from Texas, Dan Crenshaw appropriate and that’s accomplish a actual abundant donation, not to Crenshaw but to veterans like him.
MACCALLUM: Yes. That was a blue-blooded abstraction and I anticipate it would be nice. I additionally admired what Dan Crenshaw said about, you know, forgiveness, and not anybody needs to be accursed for article that they’ve said. We array of gone too far bottomward that alley of authoritative those kinds of judgments.

Thank you actual much, governor. Consistently acceptable to accept you with us. Consistently astute words.
HUCKABEE: I acknowledge it, Martha.
