SENATE WHOEVER CONTROLS TALLAHASSEE AS GOVERNOR IS WIDELY BELIEVED TO BE A BIG INFLUENCE AS TO WHICH PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE CAN TAKE FLORIDA IN 2020 AS YOU CAN SEE THE TRUMP FAITHFUL CAME OUT EARLY THIS MORNING EVEN THOUGH THEY CAN'T GET INSIDE THE AIRPORT HANGAR WHERE TONIGHT'S BIG RALLY STARTING PRESIDENT TRUMP WILL BE HE'S IN THE AIR AND AIR FORCE ONE HEADING TO MONTANA

LAST NIGHT HE WAS IN INDIANAPOLIS THE SECOND BIG CAMPAIGN RALLY OF THE DAY IT WAS QUITE ANIMATED AND VERY ENERGETIC HE WAS REVELING IN THE GREAT JOBS NUMBERS >> UNDER REPUBLICAN LEADERSHIP, AMERICA IS BOOMING

AMERICA IS THRIVING, AND AMERICA IS WINNING LIKE NEVER BEFORE BECAUSE WE ARE FINALLY PUTTING AMERICA FIRST >> YESTERDAY IN MIAMI, EQUALLY ANIMATED AND EQUALLY ENERGETIC FORMER PRESIDENT, BARACK OBAMA RALLYING SUPPORT FOR GUBERNATORIAL CANDIDATE, TALLAHASSEE MAYOR ED SENATOR BILL NELSON WHO IS RUNNING FOR A FOURTH TERM PRESIDENT OBAMA VERSUS PRESIDENT TRUMP, IT SOUNDS LIKE A DREAM RACE ESPECIALLY AMONGST POLITICAL REPORTERS THEY ARE IN THE STATE YESTERDAY AND TODAY CAMPAIGNING ON BEHALF OF THE GOVERNOR AND SENATE CANDIDATES AS WELL

LAST NIGHT, THERE WAS A SHOOTING IN TALLAHASSEE SIX PEOPLE INJURED TWO OF THEM ARE DEAD THE SHOOTER APPARENTLY KILLED HIMSELF THE MAYOR FLEW UP TO TALLAHASSEE BUT IS BACK CAMPAIGNING TODAY

IN A TWEET LAST NIGHT HE SAID I'M DEEPLY APPRECIATIVE OF THE QUICK RESPONSE OF THE SHOOTING AT THE YOGA FACILITY NO ACTIVE GUN VIOLENCE IS ACCEPTABLE GILLAM, ACCORDING TO THE POLITICS AVERAGES AHEAD OF THE REPUBLICAN BY 27% AS FAR AS THE SENATE RACE FEATURING GOVERNOR RICK SCOTT WHO IS A REPUBLICAN AND ENDING TWO TERMS AS GOVERNOR CHALLENGING BILL NELSON, WHO IS GOING ON HIS FOURTH TERM

THEY SHOW NELSON UP BY 19% STILL THREE DAYS TO GO >> LELAND: WILL WAIT TO SEE THE EFFECT OF PRESIDENT OBAMA DOWN THERE AS WELL YESTERDAY PHIL, THANK YOU SO MUCH

>> LAURA: AS THE MIGRANT CARAVAN COMING UP FROM MEXICO SOUTHERN BORDER CONTINUES MOVING TOWARDS THE US, PRESIDENT TRUMP IS SENDING TROOPS SOUTH TO PREPARE FOR HIS ARRIVAL RICK LEVENTHAL IS IN TEXAS WITH THE LATEST IT LOOKS LIKE YOU HAVE A WALL OF BARBED WIRE BEHIND YOU

HOW IS IT GOING? >> REPORTER: THE WIRE STRETCHED HERE BY THE US MILITARY, SOME OF THE FIRST ARRIVING TROOPS HERE ALONG THE RIO GRANDE RIVER THIS IS NEXT TO THE BRIDGE AN AREA THAT'S PROPERTY LEGAL BORDER CROSSING

YOU CAN SEE PEOPLE FROM MEXICO COMMITTED TO THE UNITED STATES YOU CAN SEE SOME WIRE STRUNG UP THERE IN CASE SOMEONE TRIED TO COME IN ILLEGALLY THIS IS AN AREA THAT COULD BE A DESTINATION FOR THAT CARAVAN AS IT HEADS TO THE NORTH THE SECTION WAS COMPLETED BY SOLDIERS IN THE 97th MILITARY POLICE BRIGADE THAT'S FROM FORT RILEY, KANSAS ALONG WITH CUSTOM AND BORDER PROTECTION AGENTS

A LOT OF GROUND TO COVER HERE WE WERE DOWN IN FORT BLISS YESTERDAY NEAR EL PASO WE MOVED FROM THERE TO HERE COME ABOUT 800 MILES JUST IN THE STATE OF TEXAS THESE MILITARY TROOPS ARE HELPING OUT BORDER PROTECTION AGENTS IN SEVERAL STATES INCLUDING CALIFORNIA, SOUTH OF SAN DIEGO, ARIZONA AND NEW MEXICO THEY HAVE TO COVER A LOT OF GROUND

THEY'RE NOT SURE WHICH ROUTE THEY MIGHT TAKE THE CARAVAN IS MORE DANGEROUS AND POTENTIALLY VIOLENT THAN OTHERS IN THE PAST THAT'S WHY THE DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY ASKED FOR THE MILITARY SUPPORT A COUPLE THOUSAND NATIONAL GUARD TROOPS ON THE GROUND AND AT LEAST 3500 ACTIVE SOLDIERS THERE COULD BE SEVERAL THOUSAND MORE COMING

THEY ARE MOVING CARGO PLANES AND HELICOPTERS WE'LL BE DOING SOME SURVEILLANCE BUT MOSTLY A SUPPORT MISSION TO ASSIST BORDER AGENTS ON THE GROUND TO TRY TO MAKE SURE IF THE CARAVAN COMES THIS WAY AND IF THEY TRY TO FORCE THEIR WAY INTO AMERICA THEY WON'T BE SUCCESSFUL >> LAURA: RICK, A GREAT PERSPECTIVE WITH THE MAP TO SHOW HOW MUCH GROUND YOU HAVE BEEN COVERING THANK YOU >> LELAND: ALIVE THAT PICTURE RIGHT NOW, FORMER VICE PRESIDENT, 2020 POTENTIAL CANDIDATE, JOE BIDEN IN OHIO

DEMOCRATS ARE VYING FOR THE GOVERNOR C JOHN KASICH IS OUT AFTER THIS TERM MR BIDEN IN PARMA HEIGHTS THERE NOT ONLY TALKING ABOUT RICHARD RUNNING FOR GOVERNOR BUT ALSO SHARON BROWN WHO IS LOOKING FOR A NOT FOR THE SENATE

WILL LISTEN AND >> YOU GOT THIS TO SHARE IN THE BENEFITS YOU SHOULD DO WELL THAT PARTY HAS BEEN BROKEN I KNOW THEY CALL ME MIDDLE-CLASS JOE

IT'S NOT MEANT AS A COMPLIMENT IT'S NOT THAT I'M NOT SOPHISTICATED BUT I KNOW WHY AND WHO WE ARE WHEN THE MIDDLE CLASS DOES WELL, THE WEALTHY DO VERY WELL IN THE POOR HOUSE SOME HOPE FOLKS IN CLEVELAND AND IN WILMINGTON, MY HOMETOWN IN SCRANTON UNDERSTAND

THAT IS, MIDDLE-CLASS IS NOT A NUMBER ECONOMISTS WHO WORK WILL TELL YOU MIDDLE-CLASS MEANS $52000 OR $53000 MIDDLE-CLASS IS A VALUE SET IT'S BEING ABLE TO OWN YOUR OWN HOME AND NOT RENTED BEING ABLE TO SEND YOUR KID TO A SAFE PARK KNOWING THEY WILL COME HOME SAFELY

IT MEANS THEY CAN GO TO A LOCAL HIGH SCHOOL AND IF THEY DO WELL THEY GO ON BEYOND HIGH SCHOOL SIX OUT OF TEN JOBS IN 2020 WILL REQUIRE SOMETHING BEYOND HIGH SCHOOL IT'S BEEN ABLE TO TAKE YOUR GERIATRIC MOM HOME WHEN YOUR DAD'S EYES AND HOPE YOU NEVER HAVE TO HAVE YOUR CHILDREN TAKE CARE OF YOU FOLKS, — >> LELAND: FORMER VICE PRESIDENT BIDEN ON THE STONE YOU CAN TELL BY HIS VOICE HOW MUCH HE HAS BEEN TRAVELING AND HOW MUCH HE HAS BEEN SPEAKING

PRESIDENT OBAMA MENTIONED YESTERDAY ABOUT HIS VOICE THAT HE WAS OUT OF PRACTICE THE VICE PRESIDENT HAS A FEW MORE STOPS AND SO DOES PRESIDENT OBAMA BEFORE ELECTION DAY THERE ARE 25 REPUBLICAN HOUSE DISTRICTS THAT HILLARY CLINTON WANTED 2016 SOMETHING WE HAVE HEARD FROM OBAMA AND BIDEN ONE IS THE TEXAS SEVENTH REPRESENTED BY JOHN CULBERTSON

WE REACHED OUT TO LISA FLETCHER, THE DEMOCRAT SHE WAS UNABLE TO JOIN US WE HAVE CONGRESSMAN WITH US WE APPRECIATE IT FOR A MAN WHO HAS BEEN IN CONGRESS SINCE 2001, GEORGE H

W BUSH WAS THE REPUBLICAN ELECTED IN 1966 AND HAS BEEN REPUBLICAN CENTS IT'S BEEN A CLOSE RACE >> I TREAT EVERY ELECTION AS THOUGH I AM BEHIND IT'S ALWAYS IMPORTANT TO RUN AND RUN THIS YEAR BEHIND

THE SELECTION IS ESPECIALLY IMPORTANT TO TEXAS, TO THE COUNTRY IF DEMOCRATS WENT DISTRICT SEVEN, NANCY PELOSI WILL BE SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE THIS IS ONE OF THE DECISIVE RACES FOR THE NATION I AM WORKING HARD TO TURN OUT EVERY REPUBLICAN VOTE TO MAKE SURE THAT DOESN'T HAPPEN >> LELAND: I APPRECIATE THE EARNEST EFFORT IN TERMS OF RUNNING EVERY RACE LIKE YOUR BEHIND

THERE WERE TIMES YOU WANT BY DOUBLE DIGITS AND TIMES HE DIDN'T HAVE A DEMOCRATIC CHALLENGER NOW YOU DO IN THE RACE IS EITHER TIED OR SOME SAY LISA FLETCHER COULD HAVE A SLIGHT EDGE WHY DO YOU THINK THAT IS? >> THIS IS A DIFFERENT ELECTION YEAR PEOPLE IN THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT HILLARY CLINTON WON BY DEFAULT WHEN REPUBLICANS SKIP THE PRESIDENTIAL RACE AND STRAIGHT PARTY BOAT LAST TIME THAT ALLOWED CLINTON TO WIN BY DEFAULT

THAT BROUGHT THE DEMOCRATS OUT OF WOODWORK THE NATIONAL DEMOCRAT PARTY SPENDING A RECORD AMOUNT OF MONEY TO FLIP THE DISTRICT AND TAKE ME OUT THAT'S NOT GOING TO HAPPEN I AM REMINDING THE VOTERS OF DISTRICT SEVEN THAT JOHN CULBERTSON IS THE RIGHT PERSON AT THE RIGHT TIME I'M THE ONLY FOR SOUTHEAST TEXAS AND I'VE DELIVERED TO HURRICANE FROM HURRICANE HARVEY

I HAVE A GOOD STORY TO TELL AND IT IS WORKING >> LELAND: PART OF TELLING THAT STORY IS MONEY WE LOOK AT THE FUNDRAISING TOTAL, FLETCHER IS $53 MILLION YOU ARE AT $3 MILLION

I THINK WE HAVE THE NAME WRONG ON OUR GRAPHIC WE WILL GET THAT FIXED NEVERTHELESS, I THINK THE NUMBERS ARE RIGHT GIVE ME A SENSE, WHY DO YOU THINK THAT IS? WHY HAVEN'T YOU BEEN ABLE TO GET THE SUPPORT FROM EITHER THE MONEY OR THE GRASSROOTS? >> EVERY TIME I'VE HAD A WELL FINANCED DEMOCRATIC OPPONENT THEY ALWAYS OUTSPEND AND OUTRACE ME DEMOCRATS FORGET THAT YOU DON'T COUNT DOLLAR BILLS ON ELECTION NIGHT

THAT IS WHY AM FOCUSED ON TALKING TO REPUBLICANS IN DISTRICT 70 ENCOURAGING EVERYONE WHO WANTS TO KEEP THE TAX CUT GOING AND PROTECT THE OIL AND GAS INDUSTRY AND KEEP THE PROGRESS WE HAVE MADE AND THE USE OF THE ECONOMY IS SO STRONG THEY HAVE GOT TO VOTE ON ELECTION DAY AND GET OUT AND VOTE REPUBLICAN I ENCOURAGE EVERYONE WATCHING THE SHOW TODAY TO TURN OUT ON TUESDAY E-MAIL YOUR FRIENDS AND NEIGHBORS AND GO TO THE POLLS AND VOTE STRAIGHT REPUBLICAN >> LELAND: WE'VE HEARD THE GET OUT THE VOTE MESSAGE FROM BOTH SIDES

THIS IS WHAT WE HAVE HEARD FROM PRESIDENT TRUMP NUMBER ONE, IF DEMOCRATS WIN, NANCY PELOSI IS THE SPEAKER, SOMEONE WHO IS TOXIC EVEN AMONG INDEPENDENTS NUMBER TWO, THE ECONOMY NUMBER THREE HE SAID THIS TAKE A LISTEN

>> THEY SAY IF I WAS ON THE TICKET, EVERYBODY WOULD GO, IT WOULD BE A LANDSLIDE EVEN THE FAKERS SAY THAT AND I'M NOT ON THE TICKET BUT I AM ON THE TICKET BECAUSE THIS IS ALSO A REFERENDUM ABOUT ME >> LELAND: IS IT GOOD FOR YOU IN A DISTRICT THAT HILLARY CLINTON ONE FOR THIS TO BE FRAMED AS A REFERENDUM ABOUT PRESIDENT TRUMP? >> DISTRICT SEVEN VOTERS UNDERSTAND THAT LOW TAXES AND A LIGHT REGULATORY TOUCH WORK THE ECONOMY IS STRONG IN TEXAS AND ESPECIALLY STRONG IN HOUSTON THIS ADMINISTRATION AND THE REPUBLICAN CONGRESS WORKING TOGETHER WE PASSED THE LARGEST TAX CUT AND THAT HAS LED TO RECORD ECONOMIC GROWTH

PEOPLE IN DISTRICT SEVEN UNDERSTAND IT'S REPUBLICAN, SINCE FISCAL POLICIES >> LELAND: CONGRESSMAN, I ONLY HAVE 30 SECONDS LEFT COME I DON'T HEAR YOU LIKE MANY OTHER REPUBLICANS SINCE OUR GREAT DISTRICTS THROWING THEIR RATE FULLY BEHIND PRESIDENT TRUMP IS THAT BECAUSE FOR CERTAIN VOTERS IN YOUR DISTRICT WHO YOU NEED, COME ELECTION DAY, THEY ARE VERY HAPPY WITH HIM AND DON'T LIKE HIM MUCH? >> PRESIDENT TRUMP GREW A RECORD CROWD IN HOUSTON WHEN HE CAME HERE A FEW WEEKS AGO IF THE PEOPLE OF DISTRICT SEVEN IT'S A VOTE ABOUT JOHN CULBERTSON

THE JOB I HAVE DONE FOR THE DISTRICT THE PEOPLE IN DISTRICT SEVEN KNOW THAT I CAN BE TRUSTED I WILL KEEP MY WORD AND TO REPRESENT THEM AS A FREE-MARKET REPUBLICAN WE KNOW IN DISTRICT SEVEN THAT LOW TAXES AND A LIGHT REGULATORY TOUCH WORKS THEY KNOW I HAVE DELIVERED FOR HURRICANE HARVEY

THIS IS ELECTION ABOUT JOHN CULBERTSON AND THE WORK I HAVE DONE >> LELAND: I'LL TAKE THAT AS A NOTE TO MY ORIGINAL QUESTION GOOD LUCK ON ELECTION NIGHT YOU HAVE A LONG FOUR DAYS AHEAD OF YOU THANK YOU

>> LAURA: VICE PRESIDENT MIKE PENCE HITTING THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL TODAY HE'S SHOWING UP VOTE FOR VULNERABLE REPUBLICANS HE LEFT WASHINGTON A LITTLE MORE THAN AN HOUR AGO HE'S IN ROUTE TO A RALLY IN WISCONSIN WHERE HE WILL CAMPAIGN WITH GOVERNOR SCOTT WALKER WALKER IS IN A TOSSUP RACE FOR HIS THIRD TERM AGAINST DEMOCRATIC CHALLENGER, TONY EVERS

>> LELAND: SPEAKING OF THE VICE PRESIDENT, THE SENATE RACE IN HIS HOME STATE OF INDIANA WILL COME DOWN TO THE WIRE POLL SHOWS REPUBLICAN MIKE BROWN AND JOE DONNELLY ARE QUITE LITERALLY NECK AND NECK MIKE TOBIN IS ON THE GROUND IN INDIANAPOLIS YOU HAVE THE PRESIDENT THERE, THE VICE PRESIDENT THERE, FORMER PRESIDENT OBAMA ALSO IN INDIANA >> REPORTER: THE PRESIDENT SHOULD BE LANDING SHORTLY IN MONTANA, ONLY AFTER CAMPAIGNING HERE OVERNIGHT

HE LEFT INDIANA THIS MORNING ONLY AFTER HE FIRED OFF A HANDFUL OF TWEETS WHAT ABOUT THE RALLY HE HELD IN INDIANAPOLIS LAST NIGHT HE WROTE THE INDIANA RALLY AND COACH BOBBY KNIGHT WERE INCREDIBLE LAST NIGHT A PACKED HOUSE IN HONOR OF MIKE BROWN FOR SENATE TRUMP HAS MADE MULTIPLE VISITS TO INDIANA

HE WILL MAKE ONE MORE WHEN THE SENATE RACES AS TIGHT AS IT CAN BE ASKING FOR ONE MORE REPUBLICAN IN THE SENATE HE'S A BUSINESSMAN EAST WAS IN THE LEGISLATURE BUT CAMPAIGNED AS AN OUTSIDER >> MIKE BROWN IS TYPHON CRIME AND HE WILL ALWAYS SUPPORT OUR WONDERFUL VETS IN OUR LAW ENFORCEMENT OUR POLICE

JOE DONNELLY IS A VOTE TO MAKE CRYAN CHUCK SCHUMER THE SENATE MAJORITY LEADER WE CAN'T DO THAT REMIX SENATOR JOE DONNELLY IS THE DEMOCRAT, ONE TERM INCUMBENT THAT SAID HE'S A MODERATE HE HAS VOTED WITH PRESIDENT TRUMP 62% OF THE TIME HE FAVORED THE BORDER WALL IN HIS PRO-GUN PRO-LIFE BUT HE VOTED AGAINST BRETT KAVANAUGH

TRUMP WANTS HIM OUT BECAUSE OF THE BOAT BUT IN LARGE PART BECAUSE OF THE D IN FRONT OF HIS NAME THEY ARE TRYING TO SWING THE VOTE IN DONNELLY'S FAVOR IN GARY INDIANA TOMORROW THEY ARE SAYING HIS VOICE IS GETTING HORSE THE INDIANA SENATE RACES GETTING SO MUCH ATTENTION PRIMARILY BECAUSE IT IS SO CLOSE BOTH CANDIDATES HAVE LED FOR ONE TIME OR ANOTHER IN THE POLLS

USUALLY WITHIN THE MARGIN OF ERROR THE SPLIT RIGHT NOW IS LESS THAN ONE POINT >> LELAND: CONTROL OF THE SENATE COULD COME DOWN TO INDIANA MIKE, THANK YOU WILL CHECK BACK IN

>> LAURA: WITH MANY TIGHT RACES BOTH REPUBLICAN AND DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATES ARE COURTING THE EVER ELUSIVE MILLENNIAL VOTE FOR VICTORY ALEXANDER WILKES, THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR AND KEVIN WALLING THE SENIOR VICE PRESIDENT AT HAMBURGER GIPSON CREATIVE TO DISCUSS THE MIDTERM ELECTION AND WHETHER CANDIDATES HAVE BEEN ABLE TO COURT MILLENNIAL'S AND YOUNG VOTERS A BIG DEAL FOR BOTH SIDES WELCOME BOTH >> THANK YOU

>> LAURA: THE WAY MILLENNIAL'S HAVE BEEN TALKING INTO READING TO GET OUT TO ABOUT MAKING A DIFFERENCE HAS BEEN VERY INTERESTING TO WATCH YOUNG VOTERS TRADITIONALLY SET OUT MIDTERMS THIS TIME, IT SEEMS LIKE IT COULD BE DIFFERENT HOW DO YOU THINK IT WILL GO ON TUESDAY? >> YOU'RE CORRECT I COULDN'T BE MORE EXCITED TO TALK ABOUT THIS

IN 2014 ONLY 20% OF MILLENNIAL VOTERS AGE 18 TO MAKE 35 TURNED OUT IN THE MIDTERM NOW IN EARLY VOTING IN STATES LIKE TEXAS WHERE IT'S UP 500% FROM 2014, IN TENNESSEE UP OVER 700% IN THE EARLY VOTE ENGAGED IT'S ACROSS THE BOARD REPUBLICANS ARE LEADING THE EARLY VOTE IN A TIGHT STATE LIKE FLORIDA WHERE YOU HAVE TWO KEY RACES

I THINK VOTERS ON BOTH SIDES ARE REALLY ENGAGING IN THE ELECTION >> DESPITE THEY GET OUT TO VOTE MESSAGING, RECENT POLLS SHOW LESS THAN ONE THIRD SAY THEY WILL DEFINITELY VOTE OVER 50% SAY THEY ARE NOT FAMILIAR WITH CONGRESSIONAL CANDIDATES IN THEIR DISTRICTS IS THERE A WAY THIS MILLENNIAL MOMENTUM CAN BE FINE-TUNED TO GET THEM GOING? >> I THINK IT'S IMPORTANT TO PUT EARLY VOTING NUMBERS AND CONTACTS WHILE MILLENNIAL'S ARE VOTING IN GREATER PROPORTION COMPARED TO THE PROPORTION IN 2014, EARLY VOTING IS MORE POPULAR THAN IT WAS IN 2014

IT'S AN OLDER CONCEPT WE ALSO KNOW THAT MILLENNIAL'S ARE STILL BEING OUTPACED BY THEIR OLDER COUNTERPARTS I DON'T KNOW IF WERE GOING TO EXACTLY KNOW HOW THIS NUMBER SHAKEOUT COME ELECTION DAY, PARTICULARLY BECAUSE MILLENNIAL'S ARE MORE LIKELY TO BE UNDECIDED OR INDEPENDENT WITH NO PARTY AFFILIATION THAN OLDER VOTERS IT'S MORE DIFFICULT TO PREDICT WHERE IT WILL COME DOWN FOR REPUBLICANS, THE STRONGEST ARGUMENT WE CAN MAKE IS THE STRONG JOB ECONOMY THAT'S OUT THERE NOW

THIS IS A GENERATION THAT GREW UP DURING TOUGH TIMES WE SAW OUR PARENTS LOSE THEIR JOBS WE DEALT WITH RECORD UNEMPLOYMENT FOR THE LAST DECADE OR SO NOW, THAT IS TURNING AROUND REPUBLICANS TO HAVE A STRONG ARGUMENT TO MAKE WITH YOUNG PEOPLE

>> LAURA: KEVIN, I WANT TO SHOW THE AUDIENCE SOME NUMBERS WE KNOW TURN OUT TO SENT ALWAYS GREAT TO MIDTERMS IN THE LAST MIDTERM IN 2014, 11618 MILLION – 24 -YEAR-OLDS REPORTED THEMSELVES AS REGISTERED, BUT ONLY 47 MILLION VOTED

IN 2010 THE SAME PATTERN, ONLY 56 MILLION VOTED GENERAL ELECTION WAS STRONG IN 2016 AND 2008 WHAT NEEDS TO HAPPEN TO GET THESE MILLENNIAL MIDTERM TURNOUT NUMBERS UP WHEN YOU LOOK AT IT YOU SEE THE MILLENNIAL'S ARE ENERGIZE

>> THAT'S A GREAT QUESTION THAT'S AT 20% I REFERENCE THAT EARLIER IN TENNESSEE FOR EXAMPLE, YOU HAVE SEEN A 700% INCREASE FROM THE 14 NUMBERS TO THE 18 NUMBERS I THINK MAYBE THAT'S THE TAYLOR SWIFT BUMP WE SAW WITH HER ENCOURAGING FOLKS TO TURN OUT

TO REGISTER IN GET ENGAGED IN TURNOUT FOR FOR PHIL WHO IS RUNNING IN A TIGHT RACE WITH MARSHA BLACKBURN THE MORE WE CAN ENCOURAGE YOUNG PEOPLE TO TURN OUT SPEAK TO THEIR ISSUES WE HAVE A STRONG ECONOMY BUT IT'S NOT THE ONLY ISSUE THAT AFFECTS YOUNG PEOPLE COLLEGE AFFORDABILITY, COLLEGE DEBT, HEALTHCARE, PROTECTING PRE-EXISTING CONDITIONS WE KNOW REPUBLICANS WANT TO TAKE THAT AWAY

PARENTS WERE BABY BOOMERS AND GET OLDER AND HAVE TO ENGAGE MORE IN THE HEALTHCARE SYSTEM, WE WANT TO MAKE SURE WERE PROVIDING THOSE PROTECTIONS >> LAURA: THANK YOU FOR SHARING YOUR PERSPECTIVE ON THIS THIS IS A BIG ONE TO WATCH WE'LL SEE HOW THEY DO ON TUESDAY KEVIN, AND ALEXANDER, THANKS FOR BEING HERE

>> LELAND: THE PRESIDENT WILL HEAD TO TENNESSEE TO HELP SENATE CANDIDATE, MARSHA BLACKBURN CHECK IN WITH PETER DOOCY AS IT IS THAT ENOUGH TO KEEP THE VOLUNTEER STATE RED? THE RACE FOR GOVERNOR IN FLORIDA IN A RACE FOR THEIR LIVES A FORMER RADIO HOST WITH WHAT IS AT STAKE WE'LL TAKE A CLOSER LOOK AT THE REPUBLICAN STRATEGY TO KEEP THE HOUSE AND SENATE RED ON TUESDAY WHY PRESIDENT TRUMP >> LAURA: THE MIDTERM VOTE ISHA

MIKE COME DOWN TO SEVERAL TIGHT CONGRESSIONAL RACES WE BEEN TALKING ABOUT THIS AS REPUBLICANS WORK TO MAINTAIN THEIR MAJORITY IN BOTH CHAMBERS JESSE HUNT IS HERE, PRESS SECRETARY FOR AN RCC WE LOOK AT THE GOP'S MIDTERM PUSH IT'S A LOT TO GET THROUGH

I WAS GOING THROUGH YOUR TWITTER ACCOUNTS FOR THE LETTER AND RCC, AMERICANS ARE BETTER OFF NOW WHAT OTHER MESSAGES DO YOU FEEL ARE IMPORTANT TO GET YOU TO TUESDAY >> ULTIMATELY WHAT WERE SEEING AFTER THIS REPUBLICAN-LED CONGRESS BOTH THROUGH THE TAX CUTS AND COMBATING THE OBEDIENT EPIDEMIC IN HUMAN TRAFFICKING, VOTERS CARE ABOUT POCKETBOOK ISSUES THE ECONOMY IS AS BEST AS IT HAS BEEN IN MANY YEARS WE JUST SAW JOBS REPORT RELEASE, WE SAW THAT WAGES GREW THE FASTEST LEVEL SINCE 2009

PEOPLE ARE CONTENT WITH WHERE THINGS ARE ECONOMICALLY ULTIMATELY, WE FEEL THAT'S THE BIGGEST DRIVER FOR VOTERS IN THESE DISTRICTS AGAIN, NANCY PELOSI WOULD TAKE CONTROL OF THE HOUSE AND BRING IT TO A SCREECHING HALT IN ORDER TO THWART THE REPUBLICAN AGENDA >> LAURA: A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE — WHAT IS YOUR ORGANIZATION WATCHING FOR? >> THE NATION WILL SEE KENTUCKY SIX COME INTO PLAY IT IS THE DISTRICT THAT CLOSES THE EARLIEST

THAT HAS BEEN A BATTLE BETWEEN WHAT WE HAVE SEEN FROM A LOTS OF DEMOCRATS WHICH IS A BIT SELFISH CHARADE TALKING ABOUT THEIR BIOGRAPHY >> YOU HAVE AMY MCGRATH IT'S THE BIGGEST PART OF THE CAMPAIGN AMY HAS DONE AN EFFECTIVE JOB THROUGHOUT THE CAMPAIGN SHE CAN PICK TALK TO YOURSELF AS THE MOST PROGRESSIVE PERSON IN KENTUCKY

ALSO IN FAVOR OF LATE-TERM ABORTION I ALSO WORKED TILL MINNESOTA THEN YOU HAVE TWO MORE RULE SEATS, ONE IN THE SOUTHERN TIER MINNESOTA, DONALD TRUMP ON BOTH THOSE DISTRICTS BY 15 POINTS OR MORE WE FEEL LIKE WE HAVE ONE OF THE BEST CANDIDATES IN THE COUNTRY WE FEEL LIKE IT'S A GOOD PICKUP OPPORTUNITY

>> WHEN YOU LOOK AT WHAT'S HAPPENING WITH THE RALLIES, WE BEEN WATCHING A LOT OF THEM OBVIOUSLY WE HAVE A FEW MORE DAYS TO GO HOW MUCH DO YOU THINK THE APPEARANCE OF PRESIDENT TRUMP AND VICE PRESIDENT PENSON FORMER PRESIDENT OBAMA AND BIDEN HAVE HELPED? WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE STATES THAT NEED THE HELP THE MOST AND SEE WHERE THEY'RE GOING WHAT IS IT TELL YOU? >> WE HAVE BEEN APPRECIATIVE OF ALL THE HELP THAT PRESIDENT TRUMP AND THE ENTIRE ADMINISTRATION HAS GIVEN US THEY HAVE REALLY DONE A TREMENDOUS JOB IN HELPING MAINTAIN THIS HOUSE MAJORITY, THE PRESIDENT HAS MADE TRIPS TO ILLINOIS AND MINNESOTA THOSE ARE PLACES WHERE WE HAVE A LOT OF KEY FIGHTS AND DETERMINE ULTIMATELY WHO CONTROLS THE HOUSE

I THINK THE PRESIDENT DOES A GREAT JOB IN MOTIVATING REPUBLICAN VOTERS WE MADE A COMMITMENT OURSELVES, THAT TOTALS HALF A MILLION DOLLARS AND GOING OVER 15 MARKETS WHAT WE ARE TRYING TO DO IS DRAW A CLEAR DISTINCTION MAKE VOTERS UNDERSTAND WHAT'S AT STAKE I TALKED ABOUT SOME OF THOSE POSITIVE NUMBERS

250,000 JOBS ADDED RIGHT NOW, DEMOCRATS ARE RALLYING AROUND AN AGENDA ABOUT ABOLISHING ICE AND SINGLE-PAYER HEALTHCARE IN BATTLEGROUND ISSUES THOSE TOPICS ARE ABOUT AS POPULAR'S FOOD POISONING >> LAURA: WE APPRECIATE YOUR TIME AND PERSPECTIVE THANK YOU

>> LELAND: PRESIDENT TRUMP SAYS THE BLUE WAVE MIGHT FAIL AND CONGRESSWOMAN, MARSHA BLACKBURN WANTS TO BE SENATOR MARSHA BLACKBURN OF TENNESSEE PETER DOOCY ON THE TRAIL, HELLO PETER >> BOTH VOTERS HAVE MADE UP THEIR MIND MARSHA BLACKBURN CAME HERE TO THE CITY OF FRANKLIN FAMILY DAY TO REMIND US TO >> DEMOCRATS LOOK TO TENNESSEEA IT WOULD BE A MASSIVE WIN

PETER IS LIVE IN FRANKLIN AS REPUBLICAN, MARSHA BLACKBURN MAKES HER CLOSING ARGUMENTS HELLO PETER >> LAURA, BLACKBURN VOLUNTEERS HAVE KNOCKED OUT 14 MILLION DOORS HERE IN TENNESSEE SHE HAS MADE HER PITCH TO THE STATE

NOW, SHE IS COMING TO PLACES LIKE THIS, FRANKLIN FAMILY DAY OUTSIDE OF NASHVILLE TO REMIND PEOPLE TO GO" >> THIS IS KIND OF A HOMETOWN TEAM THIS IS A REMINDER THAT TUESDAY IS THEIR LAST CHANCE WE HAVE HAD A GREAT TURNOUT IN THE EARLY BOAT WE ARE REMINDING PEOPLE IF THEY HAVE NOT VOTED THAT TUESDAY IS THE DAY THEY SHOW UP TO BOATS

>> THEY REALLY WANT CONSTITUTIONALIST JUDGES, THEY WANT TAX CUTS PERMANENT AND THE CARAVAN HEADING THROUGH MEXICO COMPANY STOPPED THEY WANT HIS CAMPAIGN TO BE MORE THAN THE DISCOURSE IN HIS COUNTRY HE SOMEHOW CONVINCED TAYLOR SWIFT TO SUPPORT HIS CAMPAIGN NEWER POLLS SHOW A TIGHTENING OF HIS RACE HE SAID MY OPPONENT HAS BEEN IN WASHINGTON FOR 16 YEARS AND FRANKLY IT SHOWS

THEY DESERVE BETTER AND I AM APPLYING FOR THE JOB PRESIDENT TRUMP IS COMING HERE TO RALLY FOR BLACKBURN IN CHATTANOOGA HE CARRIES AN APPROVAL RATING OF 58% >> 'S THANK YOU WE WILL TALK TO YOU SOON

>> WITH THAT WE BRING IN FORMER HEAD OF DATA FOR MARCO RUBIO'S PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN, SCOTT, GOOD TO SEE MARSHA BLACKBURN STARTED OFF WITH CONFIDENCE GOOD REASON FOR HER TO BE? >> TENNESSEE IS TRADITIONALLY A REPUBLICAN STATE BUT THEY DEFINITELY SPENT MONEY TOWARD THE END AND SO HE THINKS THEY HAVE A SHOT SHE SHOULD BE ABLE TO PULL IT OFF, BUT WE WILL SEE

>> LELAND: REPUBLICAN SEEM NERVOUS ENOUGH THAT THEY'RE SENDING PRESIDENT TRUMP THERE >> THEY ARE ALSO SENDING A LOTS OF MONEY AND SPENDING TIME WITH SURROGATES IT SHOULD NOT BE THIS CLOSE TENNESSEE'S TRADITIONALLY REPUBLICAN MARSHA BLACKBURN HAS A GOOD NAME IDEA AND HAS WORKED HARD FOR THE STATE

>> LELAND: THEY HAVE SOME DEEP REPUBLICAN ROOTS PUT UP YOUR HOUSE AND SENATE PREDICTIONS THIS IS A CONSULTING INTERNAL LOOK, PREDICTION OF GOP MAINTAINING THE HOUSE 56% MAINTAINING THE SENATE, 876%

THE QUESTION, IF THE GOP MAINTAINS THE HOUSE, DO THEY NECESSARILY CLEAN UP IN THE SENATE IF THE GOP LOSES THE HOUSE? IS IT WORSE IN THE SENATE? HOW CORRELATED ARE THE NUMBERS? >> WE DON'T NECESSARILY THINK THEY ARE BECAUSE OF WHERE THE TARGET GROUND BATTLE RACES ARE VERSUS WHERE THEY ARE FOR THE SENATE IT CERTAINLY COULD BE YOU COULD SEE SOME RACES IN FLORIDA AND TEXAS GO THE WAY OF WHERE THE HOUSE IS GOING TO GO BY AND LARGE, THE HOUSE IS GOING TO BE WON OR LOST IN STATES LIKE PENNSYLVANIA, CALIFORNIA, VIRGINIA

THAT'S WHERE WILL SEE SOME HOUSE RACES TO BE THERE WAY 5% IS VERY LOW, ONE IN 20 HAPPENS OCCASIONALLY >> LELAND: OCCASIONALLY PULL AN INSIDE STRAIGHT >> THE DEMOCRATS HAVE SPENT SO MUCH MONEY THE CYCLE YOU LOOK AT THE CONGRESSIONAL BALLOT ON D+ 70 PLUS EIGHT

>> LELAND: EVEN AS A REPUBLICAN YOU'RE NOT THAT OPTIMISTIC >> IT'S NOT LOOKING GOOD NOT SOMETHING I WOULD BET ON >> LELAND: ROAR BACKER IN CALIFORNIA, YOU SAY THE CHANCE OF HIM WINNING IS 56%, HE'S PLUS TWO AND ONE OF THE POLLS WHY IS THIS SUCH AN IMPORTANT BELLWETHER? >> I AM FROM THE DISTRICT, SOME CALL DANA ROAR BACKER POLLUTANTS FAVORITE

HE'S HAD ONE OF THE TOUGHEST PRIMARIES HE ACTUALLY MADE IT THROUGH THE JUNGLE PRIMARY WE HAVE IT AT 56% IN ORANGE COUNTY THIS IS RONALD REAGAN COUNTRY >> IF IT LOOKS LIKE HE'S GOING TO LOSE IS GOING TO BE A BAD NIGHT FOR REPUBLICAN

>> WE KEEP HEARING THIS SPIN FROM BOTH SIDES OF ABE DATA AS OPPOSED WHAT WE CAN TELL RIGHT NOW FAIR ANALYSIS WHO SHOULD BE MORE EXCITED, REPUBLICANS OR DEMOCRATS? >> DEMOCRATS I'M PULL OUT A COUPLE OF STATS, IN FLORIDA IT APPEARS THE EARLY VOTE SHARE IS ROUGHLY 63% WHITE GENERALLY SPEAKING IS BEEN — WHITE IT LOOKS REALLY GOOD FOR — THE DEMOGRAPHIC MAKEUP DOESN'T LOOK GOOD AND TEXAS WERE SEEING ABOUT VOTERS WHO HAVEN'T VOTED IN 2016 BUT VOTED NOW

WE THINK TEXAS WILL BE A TOTAL TURNOUT OF 8 – 9000000 THAT COULD BE INTERESTING AND SAME IN NEVADA >> PUT THIS IN MILLENNIAL TERMS REPUBLICANS MIGHT BE DRINKING EARLIER AND NOT BECAUSE ARE CELEBRATING >> GREAT CONVERSATION

THANK YOU >> LAURA: WE WANT TO TAKE YOU LIVE IN MONTANA WHERE PRESIDENT TRUMP WILL BE SPEAKING SOON HE WENT VOTERS THERE AND A LOOK AT WHAT THE PRESIDENT IS LOOKING FOR A TIGHT RACE FOR GOVERNOR OF FLORIDA BRINGING OUT BIG NAMES LIKE FORMER PRESIDENT OBAMA TO RALLY SUPPORT

WE WILL SPEAK WITH ONE RADIO HOST ON WHAT VOTERS ARE RESPONDED TO IN THE SUNSHINE STATE >> IF YOU TURNOUT ON TUESDAY TO VOTE FOR THIS INCREDIBLE FLORIDA TICKET, I PROMISE YOU SOMETHING POWERFUL HAPPENS
