tv Americas Election HQ FOX News November 5, 2016 11:00am-12:01pm PDT
and you heard him introduce pat mccrory, the governor of that state. thanks for joining us everybody. america's election headquarters from washington starts now. donald trump's whirl wind tour of nine states in the last 72 hours before election day giving a speech right now from wilmington, north carolina. we'll check in with our own campaign carl coming up. hillary clinton concentrating on three battle ground states for visits, florida, pennsylvania and new hampshire. all this as wikileaks releases thousands of more clinton e-mails this weekend. we are taking our show on the road to two battle ground states, florida and ohio.
welcome to this special edition of "america's election headquarters." i'm elizabeth prann in cleveland, ohio. >> as elizabeth braves the cold wind off lake eerie, i'm leland vitt vittert in miami beach. clinton up by a point and change as early voting continues. democrats here their turnout machine will over come trump. the national news poll that came out yesterday shows hillary clinton has a two-point lead over donald trump. important to note that is within the poll's margin of error. the nominees are hitting the swing states today. hillary clinton leaving florida as we speak, crossing the
country to win over as many of the undecided voters as they can. undecided voters do exist. we're going to talk to one here in florida a little later in the show. of course, the other challenge is motivating supporters to actually get to the polls and vote. two folks who know a lot about voting and how people do vote in these elections, fox news team coverage jennifer griffin traveling with secretary clinton. she's on the press bus right now just north of me here in florida. we be again with chief political correspondent carl cameron in denver where trump will end a busy saturday on the campaign trail. important to note that colorado is moving towards the swing state, carl. >> reporter: hey, legal lapd. welcome to denver. the trump campaign is rejiggering their schedule in order to compete in states that have traditionally voted in
democrat for in some cases decades. trump is, as we say right now, on the stump in north carolina where he's had a rally under way for quite some time. north carolina is one of his absolute must-win states, a state mitt romney won in 2012, a red state. but it's been a swing state for a number of years, going back and forth. currently it's in the margin of error in north carolina. earlier today he began in tampa. the i-4 corridor, interstate 4 in florida stretches from daytona beach on the atlantic all the way to tampa. the people who live there are perhaps the most important bellwether voters in the country. as goes florida, so goes o the country. as goes i-4 so goes florida. trump today said he's not going to wisconsin. he had a scheduled event there tomorrow. house speaker paul ryan was going to go with him. they scuttled that. now he says he's going to
minnesota, a blue state. listen to this. >> we're going to minnesota which traditionally has not been republican at all and we're doing phenomenal. we just saw paul. we're going to colorado where we're doing phenomenally well. we're going well everywhere. >> when the candidate says they're doing very well and the polls show a tie, it raises a question of whether they're trying to get a bandwagon effect going on, act so enthusiastic that people will be attracted to that and jump on board. that's what mitt romney did in 2012 and there was problems with their polling, too. it had the effect of essentially allowing some republicans to stay home. by contrast, even though hillary clinton has been leading in a lot of battleground states, her campaign is constantly painting a dark picture and warning folks they've got to get to the polls. donald trump has said just this week, even if your doctor diagnoses you as terminal in two weeks, you have to get up and drag yourself to the polls on
tuesday. that type of rhetoric is often for effective in making sure your vote turns out. telling people that you already have won it, particularly when you're going to a state like minnesota where it's going to be an uphill climb, what they're trying to do is argue that they're so strong in the battle ground states and red states, they can actually expand their battlefield. if it doesn't work out, going to minnesota will be one of the headlines on wednesday if it should be a hillary win and a trump defeat. it's a big gamble. it's a muscular play that has a lot of question marks attached to it. legal lapd? >> donald trump has seen some of those big gambles come through during this campaign season. carl cameron on the trail in denver, thanks, carl. to liz in ohio. >> over to the democratic side, hillary clinton is hitting states with high populations and a lot of electoral votes the final saturday before election day. she began the day in florida but will end it in philly where she'll join pop star katy perry
on stage. jennifer griffin is with hillary clinton and en route on the travel bus streaming. bear with us. jennifer, over to you. >> reporter: hi, elizabeth. we just had to leave hillary clinton's last stop a little early. her remarks were cut early because of rain. she spoke for about six minutes at that last rally. we're on our way to the airport now here in broward county. early voting in florida, 5.7 million people have already cast their ballots here. the latest records that we have suggest democrats are up by a mere 7,000 votes out of those 5.7 million. that is why this is such a close race as leland mentioned. early voting in some counties in florida ends tonight, some tomorrow. as of tomorrow, it will be over. hillary clinton's first stop
here was a neighborhood called little haiti, joined by sabrina fulton, trayvon martin's mother. part of her last-minute appeal to african-american voters. >> let me just say i know we have work to do today. >> that's right, that's right. >> there's never been a more important election when you stop to think, as john said, about who we are a z a country. i think we're stronger together and i think diversity of america is a great gift and blessing. i will fight every single day to provide greater opportunities here in florida and throughout america for all people. >> the campaign is concerned about low african-american turnout and enthusiasm among millennials. that's why the campaign is turning to stars like jay z and beyonce last night along with
well-known hip-hop artists to get out the vote. in cleveland it was a largely african-american crowd. they will be crucial to voting in that democratic cuyahoga county. clinton goes to philadelphia later today for a get out the vote headlineed by katy perry and stevie wonder. as you mentioned earlier, the fbi director's letter last friday and slippage in the polls has caused them to start painting a darker picture of what it will be like if voters sit this election out and donald trump is elected on tuesday. that is the message that we're hearing from the campaign. we're on our way to the airport now and we'll update you when we get there. back to you, elizabeth. >> all right, jennifer griffin reporting live. thank you very much. leland? >> we heard here in florida why jen had to leave the rally a little early.
we're getting those rain squalls through miami and miami beach that often happen this time of year. hillary clinton, though, out in the rain. you can see the rain coming down on her. you have to wonder if anybody on her advance team might next time decide to put umbrellas up over the stage. important to note, as you talk about the weather, how big of a difference the weather can make, not only on early voting days but especially on tuesday as well as the weather forecast becomes an increasingly big issue. clinton making her case to voters this weekend. the one thing she's trying to avoid talking about is the more than 50,000 wikileaks e-mails and the on going fbi investigation into her use of a private server and possibly also into the clinton foundation. here with the latest on the e-mails and the investigation into them, sarah westwood, investigative reporter from "the washington examiner." nice to see you, too bad you couldn't be down here in miami
with us. as you think about the e-mails, have we seen anything in the past seven days since we had the big bombshell of an october surprise from mr. comey, the fbi director, that has materially changed things or has that raging fire we saw last week end come back down to a similar her? >> certainly because wed haven't gotten a whole lot of new information about the fbi probe, things have sort of stayed as they were in the immediate aftermath of comey's letter. that is, people know the fbi investigation is on going. they know what hillary clinton's team was saying behind the scenes. nothing new has caused seismic shifts over the past letter. como's letter has tightened the race to the point it's a real competition heading into election day. barring more information from comey between now and tuesday, it looks like the dynamics of the race have pretty much
hardened. >> hard to imagine the fbi director who caused so much flak from both sides of the aisle for coming out and talking about the investigation would do so now less than 72 hours or so before. what are your sources saying about these parallel fbi investigations? we have the one into her server. we have the one, of course, into the clinton foundation. the other question is the wikileaks e-mails. put all three of those together for us. >> we do have i understand kapgss that the foundation probe and the e-mail investigation are dovetailing with the discovery of these additional thousands of e-mails on anthony weiner's laptop. the wikileaks leaks have provided information into the close ties between john podesta and peter cad sikh, assistant attorney general. he's updating congress. he september his son to work on the clinton campaign. at one point podesta joked that
kaz dick, quote, kept me out of jail. this raises questions about the impartiality of the fbi investigation. especially since tensions between the fbi and justice department are spilling out into the open. field agents want to take more aggressive investigative steps than the justice department has been so far willing to allow them to take. >> sarah, the idea of getting internal campaign e-mails -- and obviously there's a lot of questions to the providence of them, who stole them, wikileak, it is just absolute gold for political reporters to talk about, to write about, to think about. do you get the sense as you're looking at coverage around the country, are papers in ohio, papers in florida, papers in pennsylvania really doing deep dives into these wikileaks, or is it this gloss-over effect? >> it's a little bit of both. at first there was a major gloss-over effect because a lot of the mainstream outlets were squeamish about covering the
wikileaks information. now that the information has turned out to be largely credible. there's not been a single wikileaks e-mail proven to be falsified, mainstream media outlets are starting to pay attention, especially because some of the e-mail directly upped cut things that hillary clinton and her staff said on the campaign trail. it's not just in regards to skapdless and foundation, it's in regard to her trade policy, for example. she expressed reservation about potentially taking the trade stance that she did. we have all indications that potentially she'll come back out in favor of the transpacific partnership if she does win the presidency because that decision to come out against it was so politically calculated. these e-mails, because the mayorly is fairly confidentiality they're accurate, you've seen more coverage. >> we're seeing the inner work innings of the campaign and how that impacts policy. sarah westwood from "the washington examiner." one of the big issues in ohio
where liz is trade, the tpp, something donald trump has talked about an awful lot there in ohio, liz. >> of course, speaking of the buckeye state, it has another name during the election years, the bellwether. the presidential candidate who has won ohio has won the white house every election since 1964. this time around polls show the race here is within a handful of points. joining me now professor justin bukslar from case western reserve university here in cleveland. i made a statement there that i want twrou to agree or disagree with. can you be the president and lose ohio? >> you can be the president and lose ohio. every electoral vote is equal to every other electoral vote. you need 270 to win. it doesn't matter how you get there. ohio has 18 electoral votes. it doesn't matter which electoral votes you use to get to 250. obviously you would rather win
ohio than lose ohio. but remember north carolina has 15, florida has 29. so whoever has tended to win ohio has tended to win. but the reason that's the case is ohio is relatively evenly divided between democrats and republicans. the country is relatively evenly divided between democrats and republicans. >> there's been so much focus on a number of states. is it safe to say ohio is a microcosm of the nation? and in your observation is that a trend you think could be shifting? >> yes. for the most part ohio is politically similar to the country. whichever way the country goes, that's how ohio goes. whoever wins at the national level tends to win ohio. this year, right now donald trump has probably a small lead in ohio. so it looks like donald trump will probably win ohio. but right now at the national level, hillary clinton has probably a small lead.
and if you have to bet right now hillary clinton probably has a small lead. so it looks like this is the year that the record might be broken, and it's absolutely possible for someone to win the all you need is 270. >> you study numbers, you study trends. what do you find most fascinating about the state of ohio as far as what voters are caring about this year? is it anything unique they care about this year in particular? >> i don't think ohio is particularly unique in what they care about. right now what's going on in the country is we have a strange election. it's very rare for one party to win more than two elections in a row. that's very rare. it's happened once since the post world war ii era. 1980, 1984, 1988, very rare for one party to win three elections in a row. usually it takes a very strong economy. this year we have a very strange election because we have two arguably weak candidates, and the test has been hillary
clinton versus donald trump. we have the two lowest polling candidates, the two lowest polling nominees we've ever seen. the question is which candidates is weaker? what's happened is we've got a tepidly growing economy. the economy is growing, positive gdp growth, but not all that much. we've got a democratic party that's won two elections in a row. which would normally mean a republican year, but we also have donald trump as the nominee and donald trump is a very weak nominee. that's really helped hillary clinton. but over the last week or so we've seen what's happened to that lead. >> we don't have much time left. my last question, and i'm going to put you on the spot. we've had this conversation before. what do you find most fascinating about this election because it is so unique? >> donald trump obviously. donald trump has been the strangest nominee we've ever seen in political science, there was no model that predicted he would get the nomination and yet he did. we have seen more twists and
turns in this campaign than anybody ever imagined. a week ago nobody thought we would be where we are now with the fbi announcement this campaign has taken more twists and turns than anybody imagined. >> it also means people are engaged and we love that. >> yes, but the strangest campaign we've ever seen. >> professor, thank you very much. fox news channel is your place for politics ahead of tuesday's election. tomorrow at 11:00 a.m. eastern, media buzz will take a look at how the media has been covering the election with our own ed henry, john roberts, jennifer griffin and trish regan. fox news sunday has an exclusive interview with vice presidential nominee governor mike pence, and also joel bettinson leading up to live election coverage right here on the fox news channel.
>> this is the problem with live television, we never know who is going to talk first. ladies first, liz. go ahead. >> i wanted to let you know, i know you've been speaking with a lot of voters there in florida. this morning we spent time with voters and it was fascinating hearing people. they were out this morning. we saw a large crowd. all of them i thought had very educated point. one thing i did bring up with the professor is folks are really engaged this election cycle and we still do not know what's going to happen on tuesday. >> we don't know, a lot of people don't know. perhaps it is the voters themselves who are undecided as well. there are still undecided voters out there. talked to some of those voters today, not only in florida, but across the country as well. we'll go to battle ground states across the country as america's
election headquarters looks at the latest polls and takes you to key races and issues in the southeast, the mountain west and the heartland where this election that has been so hotly contested will be decided. take a look at this guy. bernie sanders is in iowa. remember his showing in iowa was huge, and now he is standing behind a lectern with hillary clinton's banner stronger together as sanders tries to harvest voters for his one-time democratic rival. our rich edson back once again. hi, rich. >> reporter: good afternoon. bernie sanders will try to convince supporters to vote for hillary clinton and thus far at this event. it's off to a rough start. we'll explain coming up.
and 10 grams of protein. and i'm just getting warmed up. boost. be up for it. i am totally blind. i lost my sight in afghanistan. if you're totally blind, you may also be struggling with non-24. calling 844-844-2424. or visit my24info.com. yeah...r when you said that men are superior drivers? yeah, then how'd i'd get this... allstate safe driving bonus check? ... only allstate sends you a bonus check for every six months you're accident-free ... silence. it's good to be in, good hands.
six of the past seven presidential contests in iowa have gone to democrats, and holding on to young voters there will be crucial if hillary clinton hopes to corporate that pattern. our own rich edson is in ames, home of iowa state university where bernie sanders is about to take the stage. hi, rich. >> reporter: good afternoon, elizabeth. there are a number of speakers who are getting up to introduce bernie sanders. one of the student speakers here, a sophomore got up, and at a hillary clinton event featuring bernie sanders said that hillary clinton is the lesser of two evils, voting for her it makes no difference, there's no point. he was escorted off the stage. we spoke to him afterwards.
he said he's a sophomore and he wrote in bernie sanders' name. got a smattering of applause. for the most part, this crowd thus far has been receptive to the laudatory remarks we've heard regarding hillary clinton. this is where hillary clinton needs to make up the deficit that she has in polling in iowa right now, down by about three percentage points according to the real clear politics average of polling. she needs to turn out to college campuses, the eastern parts of states. in doing so, they're bringing out bernie sanders to try to convince these younger voters to vote for her. we talked to folks waiting in line to get into this event. so far their reaction to hillary's campaign is mixed. >> absolutely not. >> why not? >> i feel like he doesn't actually support her. he's just saying it because he doesn't want to end up being treated like ralph nader. i don't think he believes hillary clinton will be a good president. >> he's made it evidently clear that hillary clinton is the
right choice. over the summer i went fully behind hillary and i'm really excited for her as a candidate, but also excited that bernie is supporting her as well. >> when they bring bernie sanders out to the state, they're hoping to bring the young people out and to inspire in them confidence that, what hillary clinton says actually does align with what bernie sanders said. >> elizabeth, some of the other issues coming out with the wikileaks releases we've seen have to do with her comments to wall street banks about regulation, about trade and showing a much more open tone to those issues than she has on the campaign trail, especially with debating bernie sanders. so that continues to be an issue to try to convince those voters to come out and show up and turn this state from where it's polling right now to one that would help to block any further path that donald trump might have to the presidency. if you look at the early voting returns thus far in the state, voting for absentee right now is down where it was four years ago
for both democrats and republicans. if you look at the share, the percentage of votes right now and compare them to where they were four years ago, democrats are doing a little worse, republicans are doing better, this four days before the election in the latest totals that we have y yesterday in the state of iowa, that according to the secretary of state. back to you. >> all right. rich edson reporting live in ames, iowa. thank you so much. leland? >> liz perhaps went to vote with her daughter claire. it is an american tradition in so many ways, and uniquely american to go vote in so many ways. i used to do it with my mother. today we found a tradition as it was being passed down from father to son. as you might imagine, despite the young age of this man we found, sometimes family doesn't always see eye to eye. >> i think it's a pretty great place. i think we're doing fine. i think we're heading in the right direction. >> so great, in fact, of a place
that asher can vote twice. he's got two stickers. >> did you vote once or twice? >> twice. >> okay. >> more on that when we come back. major battle ground states say they have no room for voter fraud. we'll tell you what steps they are taking about what has become a serious issue in this election. >> speaking of ohio, in cleveland beyonce and jay z held court with hillary clinton. we'll tell you why clinton is now depending so much on queen b right there for the youth vote. >> if you're reedy for freedom, make some noise! my business was built with passion...
but i keep it growing by making every dollar count. that's why i have the spark cash card from capital one. with it, i earn unlimited 2% cash back on all of my purchasing. and that unlimited 2% cash back from spark means thousands of dollars each year going back into my business... which adds fuel to my bottom line. what's in your wallet? seconds can mean the difference between life and death. for partners in health, time is life. we have 18,000 people
>> thank you. >> you just saw live -- not live pictures. taped pictures of hillary clinton at a concert last night with jay z and beyonce. they were obviously promoting her. she's also going to be having public appearances with lebron james tomorrow. she's bringing in huge names, popular names to a popular city of cleveland. cleveland is a must-win for hillary clinton. this is a very important city and a very important state for her. >> earlier today we heard donald trump basically calling her out saying that he doesn't need these celebrities to come help him draw a big crowd and that he doesn't think it was necessarily appropriate some of the language that the headliner jay z was using. he thinks there's a double standard. if he characterized the things jay z was saying last night, he
would be in much bigger trouble. >> that's one of the key issues donald trump has raised, voter fraud. donald trump has talked often about voting integrity and preventing fraud anti what he continuously calls a rigged system. but there has been evidence backing his claim, according to one secretary of state of a swing state. she says she'll make sure any hint of voter fraud will be investigated. our own peter doocy is here. what have you learned abou were columbus, the state capital and stat down with the secretary of state who made news when he said all the talk about donald trump, when he says the election is going to be rigged in ohio, he said two weeks ago it's irresponsible. he's changing his tune a little bit. i had a chance to ask him what he would say if donald trump called him up and said he wanted to contest the result of the election on tuesday in the state because of fraud. he said he would help him out on one condition. >> i would ask him to provide us the evidence, and if there was
evidence we would investigate it and get the answer to that. but i would say that to any voter who called me with evidence that something went wrong. >> so the secretary of state going to be on the lookout for fraud. but a federal judge just ruled trump supporters can't be, at least not up close and personal. the democratic party sued the trump campaign and an outside group run by roger stone, the group is called stop the seal and they got sued because the democrats were worried about having september cal trump supporters observing the proc d proceedings and thought they could come across as intimidating. the judge agreed. he also ruled the clinton campaign can't do anything like that either. also worth pointing out, 2 1/2 hours ago was the deadline in ohio to request an early ballot. we request to see final early numbers soon. so far more than a million ohioans cast ballots in this election. but that's 18% fewer than this point last year. the secretary of state also told
us while enthusiasm looks to be down statewide, it's down a lot more in counties than obama won in 2012 than the counties that romney won which could, sf you want to extrapolate, be a good time for the gop. >> all about turnout, right? >> early and on time. >> i was going to say early and often, but not often. that would be illegal. >> that would be illegal. >> leland, back to you in the sunshine state. >> here in florida it is a major battleground in the presidential race, a swing state of swing states. with both hillary clinton and donald trump investing millions of dollars hoping to secure every single vote. at some point we will have a dollar figure and the amount spent for every single vote. here in southern florida and particularly miami, a major cultural shift is taking place among generations of voters like cuban american voters who have traditionally voted republican.
but changes are afoot across the state, especially to the north. many young hispanic voters, puerto rican voters are shifting to be reliable democrats. on the other hand, we ran into a young man with his son. the son never stopped talking about trump much to the dismay of his miami beach father. >> i'm happy with it. people talk about the need for change, but i think my life is pretty good. i think the country is going to be fine. i'm fine with extending crept policies. >> well, i think it's a tough race. i don't think we really do know what the early voting has been. the line is clearly drawn in the sand. this is not something that i like for my community. i was born in cuba. my parents brought me to this country precisely because we don't want that time of -- >> you're confident in whatever the result is? >> absolutely. we are a democracy. if you violate that, then what am i doing in the united states?
>> a man here as so many here in florida do, especially in the community of cuban america, little ave. vannah here in miami who know democracy is not free and have experienced quite the opposite just 100 miles or so south of here. noteworthy, as much as we talk about florida, the unbelievable coverage here, the amount being spent on television advertising in miami. you cannot get to a commercial break in television without seeing a political ad. but check out the front page of "the miami herald" here, just a couple of days before the election. there is not a single election related story, be it about the house races, the contested senate race of marco rubio where the candidates are spending so much time in florida, not a single story on the front page of "the miami herald" reminding everybody that the general election is indeed on tuesday. a lot of folks i talked to, liz, here around south beach who have such a critical vote in this election said, well, i don't
know if i'm going to have time, i might not vote, i haven't really decided. i'm curious if you're hearing the same thing there in cleveland? >> we have seen some of that septemberment. you bring up a good point about the front page of the i'm moo mime herald. we have a political tult can't coming on the show a little later. we see down ballot contestants saying it's difficult to get any type of television ad, going to social media, going old school going door-to-door because in this election, what they're saying it's really hard to get their voices heard, especially when we've seen a lot of personal attacks. but we'll continue our conversation on the election and election day. so let's bring in our fair and balanced panel because we are just after seeing some brand new poll numbers we want to talk about that were released at 6:00 p.m. let's bring in alex con tnt, former communications director for marco rubio's presidential campaign and mark levine, a regular on our show, democratic member of the virginia house of
delegates. alex, i apologize, i said she. i meant he there. i'll go to you for my first question. i want to put up a brand new fox news poll. hillary clinton with a two-point lead over donald trump. that is within the margin of error. the campaign is full force ahead of tuesday. what do you think they are most concerned about in these final hours? >> i think both campaigns at this point are probably ignoring the national polls an focusing on the state polls, the electoral college where clinton has an advantage. she's currently leading in a enough states to put her over the 270. as the national polls have shown, the race has ties ended everywhere over the last couple days. it will be closer on election day. ohio where you are today is a critical state not just for the presidential contest but the senate contest where i know rob portman has a big lead. florida, marco rubio, my former boss has a big lead in florida. the presidential race is going to be tight and it's a must-win
for both campaigns. >> mark, i want to bring you in. i think i know your response here. i know she has an advantage. but do you think she should be worried because the poll numbers are rising and there are a good amount of i understand depth voters. we have another fox news poll when you look at the independent, we see donald trump is ahead, polling around 41% and hillary clinton more around 33%. >> this is certainly no time to be come place september. if you're a democrat, you need to get out. i think hillary can work across the heil. she was highly thought of by republicans in the senate. as marco rubio said and still believes, donald trump is a bully, been a dangerous con man cheated people his entire life. i know there are people hurting in america that want this election to go away. i would say to them, look, just because donald trump has cheated on his taxes and cheated other
people, he hasn't done it for you and he won't do it for you. that is just his way of practice for 70 years. i think at least those independents would recognize someone who could work across the aisle rather than someone who is really dividing this country. >> alex, who do you think has more advantage with the independent voters, especially with the new news from the fbi a week ago. >> it's hard to imagine a worse way for this campaign to end for hillary clinton. it's why we've seen the polls tighten in the last week. she's under investigation by the fbi. that investigation will not be over on election day. so we have the prospect of potentially electing somebody who is currently under investigation by the fbi under a criminal investigation. i think that's unprecedented. it's bad for the country. it's just something that is unfathomable and why so many democrats down ticket have had trouble defending her over the last couple days. for instance, in florida patrick murphy who himself -- one of his
donors is facing an fbi investigation, he continues to say he believes hillary clinton is 100% honest. how can any democrat say hillary clinton is 100% on honest? that's why you're seeing republican senate candidates finishing strongly, in florida, where you are in ohio, wisconsin. republicans down ballot are doing well. on the top of the ticket, donald trump is closing the gap quickly. >> this shows the danger when the fbi -- >> mark, i want to -- >> go ahead. >> i would love to hear your response on that. >> it shows the danger when the fbi puts its thumb on the scale. rudy giuliani was talking about fbi agents were going to spread this innuendo. donald trump is under investigation, too, for his ties to vladimir putin. here we have james comey saying i don't know of any evidence against hillary clinton, i don't think any of it is significant. i'll look into anthony weiner's
e-mails, they may be duplicates. >> mark, i'm so sorry. i hate interrupting you, but it gentlemen, thank you so much. we'll have much more from cleveland and miami right after the break. a decision. the decision to ride on and save money. he decided to save money by switching his motorcycle insurance to geico. there's no shame in saving money. ride on, ride proud. geico motorcycle, great rates for great rides.
what a picture on miami beach. the sun out this morning on a very busy saturday. 80 degrees. you have to wonder how many of those tourists will head off to the beach and go talk to folks and how many of the folks are locals of which you'd imagine are a lot. we'll head to the ballot box. early voting ends either today or tomorrow and obviously election day tuesday. by the current numbers, roughly a third of the votes in florida have already been cast. that's the presidential election. obviously the senate election here around the country, there are two gubernatorial seats up for grabs, governor mansions across the country. one of them north carolina, where of all things, the bathroom is what could make all the difference for the governor there. jonathan serrie to explain. >> reporter: controversial legislation has made for one of the tightest gubernatorial races in the country. pat mccrory came into the
governor's office with the reputation as a business friendly moderate. his bid for a second term turned into a referendum of socially conservative legislation including house bill 2. the governor signed the so-called bathroom bill back in march blocking local efforts to allow transgender people to use government building restrooms that correspond to their gender identity. the law rallied social conservatives but alienated many fiscal conservatives in the business community. it prompted an economic boycott of the state which became a campaign issue. >> when we lost the nba all-star game, the ncaas and the acc championships, it hurt north carolina's economy and our national reputation. >> does the desire to be politically correct outweigh our children's privacy and safety? not on my watch. >> governor mccrory accuses his democratic opponent roy cooper of failing to do his job as
