tv   Anderson Cooper 360  CNN  November 3, 2015 6:00pm-7:01pm PST

6:00 pm
9:00 p.m. here in new york and election night across the country and results in some key statewide races and a year to go
6:01 pm
until the big election night and one year out the certainly are busy. john kasich and hillary clinton holding town halls in iowa and jeb bush in south carolina, new hampshire, plugging books today ben carson and donald trump who also launched some especially hard shots at the competition. >> when the e-mail problem came up, bernie sanders lost his whole campaign. i mean, what he did was so stupid from his standpoint. marco rubio's personal finances are discredited. oh, no, all you have to do is look at his credit card. he is a disaster with his credit cards. my jeb impression, no, i don't want to do that. i don't like showing a person sleeping at a podium. >> that was just some of it. joining us now with more, is trump going back on the offensive in the wake of the second national poll showing him, you know? >> i think we're grappling with what donald trump in second place looks like. he is very clear, he does not like to be in second place. he calls other people losers
6:02 pm
when they fall behind in the polls. tonight at this event he was announcing his book, boasting about it and lashing out at anyone and everyone. ben carco, marco rubio and jeb bush. doesn't matter if it's about low energy or policy positions. take a listen to particularly tough things he had to say about marco rubio. >> not much different. you look at marco rubio. very, very weak on illegal immigrati immigration. you look at ben and he is very weak on immigration and he wants to get rid of medicare. ben wants to get rid of medicare. it would be a horrible thing. it actually works. you get rid of the fraud, waste and abuse, it works. so, when a man is weak on immigration and wants to get rid of medicare, i don't know how he stays there. >> he went after jeb bush, again, as well. >> he did go after jeb bush. he may know that donald trump is preparing to be on "snl" later this week and meet with lauren michaels and work on his sketches and asked if he would do his jeb bush impression. he said he didn't want to do an
6:03 pm
impression of someone falling asleep at a podium. one of a number of jabs he took at jeb bush today. >> he is now using the low energy against carson. >> he likes to recycle the same attack. >> it worked against bush. >> now trying it against carson. >> appreciate it. in the nbc/"wall street journal" poll 52% said they couldn't see themselves supporting jeb bush. with 90 days to go until the iowa caucuses bush has a new campaign sloeger, jeb can fish it. our special correspondent caught up with him in south carolina and in a wide-ranging interview she asked him about his struggles to jump start his campaign. donald trumps attacks and for r marco rubio. >> i have good news for you. you are working with lowered expec tagdzs. >> yes. >> no way to go. does that in some way free you up? >> to a certain extent. i always knew this was going to be hard. i never felt like i was a
6:04 pm
frontrunner because we haven't earned it. just starting out on the journey, you have to go earn it. i have to get better at debating or performing, whatever that's called. i will. i'm very competitive. so, i feel good about where we are. >> you keep saying i'm a grinder. what does that mean? >> that means i described it as i eat nails before i have breakfast. i am focused. i am competitive. i set high expec tagdz tations myself. i knew this was going to be hard. >> donald trump is tweeting out every two seconds. this morning he said, you should quit. he said all the candidates should quit except for him. do you think an old-fashioned guy who wants to be a doer, who wants to be a fixer is really what people are looking for? >> they're desperate for it. this is the real world. now, in the pundit world, you know, where it's all about this
6:05 pm
kind of bizarre tweeting out things that aren't relevant to anybody's real life. that's another subject. i'm not going to win over the punditry class, for sure. i can win over people who can aspire to a better life for themselves and their family. donald has run for president twice and quit. and i've run for governor in the biggest swing state and won twice. i know how to win. i've done it. i actually know how to govern, which is going to be an attribute when we get closer to the election. >> for the record, for donald trump, you're not quitting? >> no. i mean, do we have to talk about donald trump? no, i'm not quitting. he's entertaining. he's fun. he says really funny things in the breaks in the debate. but i'm running for president of the united states. and it's a serious endeavor. i do it with joy. there's a lot of fun parts of it for sure. >> marco rubio. he is now rising in the polls.
6:06 pm
your former protege. you went after him for missing votes, but he hit back and some people think he got the better of the moment. was it a mistake to attack him on that? >> here's my point. people that are serving need to show up and work. period. over and out. >> so, it wasn't a mistake. >> i think people need to show up and work. >> i understand. but this is a campaign you have to beat these other guys. so, do you keep attacking? >> i'm not attacking to say that someone should show up and work? do you get paid when you don't show up? i mean, come on. does anybody in this room get paid when they decide, i'm going to go do something else. rand paul has got a pretty good attendance record. he is running for president, as well. you can make an accommodation. the people of the state of florida expect people to show up and work when they elect them. it's not a criticism. just a simple fact. >> you're going to keep saying it. >> that people will show up and work? >> marco rubio. >> it's not a criticism.
6:07 pm
>> okay. donald trump, have to get back to him one more time. he just called marco rubio a lightweight. and he said, vladimir putin would eat him for lunch. you think that's fair? >> no, it's not fair. look, marco is a capable guy. a talented politician. here's what i think. i think i'm the best qualified to be president. >> is marco rubio ready? >> i'm the best qualified guy to be president. >> you're not going to answer the question. >> if you're comparing me to donald trump, i'm better qualified to be president. >> is marco rubio -- >> i'm better qualified than anyone else running for president and i'm not pushing people down when i say that. and if it makes you feel better, everybody on the republican stage is better than hillary clinton. that's a low bar, though. >> you have said that you have grave concerns about donald trump. you watch first hand your brother, your father be commander in chief. >> yeah. >> are you comfortable with donald trump as commander in
6:08 pm
chief? >> i'm not comfortable with some of the things he says, particularly about syria where he one week says that let isis take out assad and then the russians come in and he praises putin and says, let russia take care of isis. it's a reactive kind of mode that somehow i'm the big guy in the room. i'll just figure it out as i go along. foreign policy needs to be underbird with a set of principles. so, i think he's going to have to learn if he's serious about this. you know, to be able to get your foreign policy advice from the shows is probably not the best way to be ready to be president. >> much more of her interview with jeb bush ahead. she asked what kind of advice her brother, george w. bush is giving him and whether he's d worried about disappointing his parents. e. the network that's doubled its lte coverage in the past year. our new extended range lte signal now reaches twice as far as before.

6:11 pm
6:12 pm
as we said jeb bush has a new campaign slogan, jeb can fix it. also released his new ebook "reply all." a collection of e-mails from his years of e-mails as governor of florida. here's part two of her interview with jeb bush. >> the book, here it is. 700 pages.
6:13 pm
this book is jeb bush. the policy wonk, the guy who likes to talk about budgets, fix things. but i know you say it's the polls. i know you say it's going to change. but do you think you waited too long? >> this book is not about policy. this is a book about a servant leader. it's a book about -- >> meaning? >> there are people hurting in our country that aren't getting a fair shake and there are politicians that say, hey, i'm just the big guy in the room. i'm the personality. trust me. and then there are people who have a servant's heart that work each and every day on behalf of people to give them a chance to have prosperity to have a life of purpose and meaning. this book is an example of servant leadership where i move the needle. i fix things that were broken in my state and i'm proud of it. >> e-mails in there and in one
6:14 pm
e-mail the word the bush family hates, d-word. dynasties. you talk about your dad skydiving which you say you would not do. for the record. and you talk about how much you love him. how are your parents handling this campaign? >> well, i'm making a contribution for my dad. i think he stopped watching reruns of "csi." he's back watching the cable news shows so that he can get, he gets fired up. he wants his son, he loves his son. i love him more than he loves me because he's the greatest man alive. but i think i'm taking credit for getting him back in the game a little bit. and mom who you may remember was talking about being neutral was kind of neutral on the subject of my candidacy is fully onboard. so, they're all in for jeb. >> is your dad still throwing things at the tv? >> i think he is. you know him.
6:15 pm
i mean, he's the most loving guy in the world, but this isn't about policy for him. this is about his boy that he loves. >> when they see you struggling, is that hard or do they keep that away from you? >> i don't know. i feel, i never want to let them down for sure. they don't, i don't get a sense that they're disappointed in me in any way. they know, if anybody knows about the long haul nature of primary campaigns and campaigns in general is george and barbara bush. they've got the right perspective on this and so does my brother. he, of all people, knows about this because he's, by the way, the last republican and the second to last republican to win elections. so, he knows how it is done. >> so, let me ask you about your brother because i'm guessing that somewhere along the line he said to you, don't worry about me, go out there and say whatever you need to say and do whatever you need to do.
6:16 pm
and he does understand this better than anyone else. >> yeah, he does. >> you were just with him in houston. does he give you any advice? >> yeah, first of all, i struggled with this because i don't want to say anything bad about my brother. he's my brother and, you know, the blood sport is, oh, where do you differ? so, i stumbled in the beginning. because i had a hard time saying, i spent, what? six years being governor of the state where i never was critical of my brother even when i was, you know, striving to get the best deal i could get for my state. it was a discipline i was quite proud of. i haven't just cast it aside. so, my bad. not his. because you're right, he's a do what you need to do. his advice is to be patient. stick with it. at the end of the day, thafr -- people are going to figure out who is going to be president and who is going to sit behind the big desk to use his terminology. it's encouraging to hear him say that because he knows.
6:17 pm
he's been through ups and downs. that's just the way it is. >> in the bush family there is a great sense of responsibility about public service. >> yeah. >> so, when you took this on, that goes with the last name. do you worry about letting your parents down? >> i have thousands and thousands of people that i want to do well. i want to win, though, too. this is not about disappointing people. this is about fixing some really complex things that i know i can do. i just know it in my heart that i could draw people together to unify the country around a few really big things. and if we did it, income would grow for the middle class. people would be lifted out of poverty and we would be safety and secure. that's what i focus on. so, the hardest critic of jeb bush is jeb bush. >> more of jamie's interview with jeb bush just ahead. she asked him to get specific and what he thinks about prison reform, and the iran nuclear
6:18 pm

6:21 pm
to my community. i have three boys. they're what keep me going every day. our friends, families live in the area. and it is important for all of us that we keep our community safe. together, we're building a better california. big day? ah, the usual. moved some new cars.
6:22 pm
hauled a bunch of steel. kept the supermarket shelves stocked. made sure everyone got their latest gadgets. what's up for the next shift? ah, nothing much. just keeping the lights on. (laugh) nice. doing the big things that move an economy. see you tomorrow, mac. see you tomorrow, sam. just another day at norfolk southern. before the break you heard jeb bush tell jamie that he has to be serious about foreign policy. he made that jab before, refers to mr. trump's answer when he was asked on "meet the press" where he gets his foreign policy
6:23 pm
advice. in part she she asked mr. bush to get specific on his own policies. >> talk to me about policy. president obama has accelerated the release of more than 6,000 prisoners. are you comfortable with that? >> i would have preferred that he do it the old-fashioned way. which is to find people that agree with him that we need to reform our federal criminal justice system. people on the republican side. there's large numbers of republicans that believe we need to reform it, as well. work through congress. actually do something where the democracy works properly, rather than be executive order. >> you think this was wrong? >> i think it was the wrong approach with the right reason. and 6,000 people being released, i don't know what the screening process is. i don't know, i've talked to some law enforcement officials and they're concerned about the possibility of increased crime. we've seen an increase in crime in the big urban areas right now. no one would want to see that
6:24 pm
increase. there is a problem of mandatory sentences. i think the federal government shouldn't necessarily be involved in the extent that they are in criminal justice matters. the president has opportunity to shift power back to the states to let the states decide this and give people second chances. >> let's talk about iran. you have said that you would oppose the iran nuclear deal. >> yeah. >> would president jeb bush cancel it? >> i would, i would confront iran's ambitions in the region. i would focus on -- >> what does that mean? >> that means we shouldn't allow for the gaining of influence in syria and iraq and yemen and lebanon as they have done. i would do everything in my power to assure that our european allies wouldn't make major investments in iran, including the possibility of reinstating u.s. sanctions, which won't have the same impact as european sanctions directly on iran, but an impact on european companies that are considering investing and they
6:25 pm
have to choose will they go to the country that has the rule of law, the largest market in the world, great, you know, great relationships already, or will they go partnering with the iranian revolutionary guard to suppress the people of iran? and, so, and then we need to be vigilant as it relates to the actual agreement. the problem with this agreement is that it only deals with one element and no assurance that there are the verification proern procedures to give anybody confidence. allow them to continue to be aggressively pursuing their strategy as state-sponsored terrorism. >> any way you would have agreed to that deal? >> yeah, i take it back, excuse me. i would have agreed to the deal that president obama said was the purpose or the basis of the deal, which was to assure that iran would never, ever have the capability of building a nuclear bomb. but he abandoned that. he abandoned that and that's the tragedy of this. and i believe we also should have included the larger, the
6:26 pm
equally important issues of their sponsor of hezbollah. their sponsor of propping up assad, which has created the brutality of 250,000 deaths. >> you have talked about iran as a state sponsor of terrorism. the vatican announced that the pope is going to meet with the president of iran in the next month. do you think that's appropriate? >> look, i believe in miracles. i'm a person of faith. i will pray for a miracle for the transformation of the muto t their country be free. this is kind of the basis of the obama administration. let's negotiate with the largest sponsor of terrorism in the world and on the basis of that they go quietly into the night, maybe pope francis can achieve that miracle. >> you don't think it gives them some kind of legitimacy when they get to meet with the pope? >> just as it gives them legitimacy by signing an agreement with the united states of america. >> last question, you have another debate coming up.
6:27 pm
you have said you weren't happy with your own performance at the debate. >> yeah. >> what do you do differently this time? >> i'm going to do my best. i'm going to get better at being able to say what's on my mind. what's in my heart. not just focus on what the question is and answer that. but these debates are an opportunity to talk about how you can create rising income for the middle class. and create a more safe and secure world. i know i can do this. i'm pretty confidential be able to do it and do it like this. do it and mean it. be, view this as an experience that is an honor and a privilege because it is. >> what do you mean when you say do it and mean it? >> well, you can't fake. you can't fake joy. you can't fake it. i believe that we're on the verge of greatness in this country and i want to share that enthusiasm to the people. this is an opportunity to do it. you don't get 5 million people watching you any day of the week. >> jamie joins us now. you interviewed him for a long
6:28 pm
time. not the first candidate to put out a book while they're running. what do you make of this book? >> no other candidate would put out a book like this. >> it's 700 pages of his e-mails as governor. >> they have to cut it down, he had more e-mails and it is authentic for jeb bush. that's what he is about. the problem is, does it tra translate to voters? >> he didn't seem to give any sense that he is going to stop going after marco rubio, though he wouldn't she is going after marco rubio. >> you criticize, but don't criticize. three times he said, would you get paid if you don't show up for work? so, there is no question that nonattack attack is going to keep coming. absolutely. and for the other candidates, as well. >> jamie, thank you so much. appreciate it. good to have you on. joining me now anna navarro supporter of jeb bush and friend
6:29 pm
with marco rubio. it feels like jeb bush alternates. i know i need my game on for the next debate and that's what i'm going to do and on the other hand saying this is what i am, i am not a performer. what you see is what you get. which is it? >> he needs to reconcle himself to the fact that it needs to be both. he needs to be his authentic self-he needs to have his voice, his ideas. but at the same time, he needs to deliver those ideas and those answers while performing. and connecting. and projecting. and looking forceful and being energetic. so, you know, he's got to get off this idea where, you know, performing is a boogie monster and he's got to just tackle it and do it. >> you know, i mean, one of the things that bush told jamie was that he expected the race to be hard, but maybe not this particularly type of hard. because of donald trump.
6:30 pm
which you would agree with. it underscores the question whether jeb bush missed his moment. whenever that moment may have been. he has been out of this game for a long time now. >> you know, look, you have to run for president when you feel it's the right moment for you. the right moment for you, for your family, for your career and your life and i think jeb waited for what he thought was the right moment. you know, anderson, i was thinking today. i remember when jeb ran and los. and it was a devastating blow for him and for those of us who were supporting him. and he didn't go and hide under a bed. he picked himself up and he did what he had to do the next two, three years to put himself in a position to be able to come back and win. he's got to do the same thing. he doesn't have three years to do it. he has three weeks. >> i mean, the clock is ticking. how much longer can he stay in this thing with these kind of
6:31 pm
poll numbers? you have no doubt he'll go through iowa and go through new hampshire. >> i fully expect to be voting for him in the florida primary. i think, you know, frankly, that answer, that question i find, you know, somewhat strange given that there are so many others on that debate stage who have lower poll numbers. lower finances and not a dime to their name. >> i'm curious how long they'll stay in, too. >> well, right. but i think, i think you stay in until you think it's the responsible -- >> in terms of money, he still has a lot of money. >> yeah, it's more than money. look, money, money is huge. and it's necessary. but you also have to have the heart and the will and the back bone to keep showing up at campaign event and campaign event and delivering your stump speech and talking to voters. you stay in it until your heart and your spine and until your bank account is sustaining you.
6:32 pm
>> ana navarro, always good to have you on. thanks, appreciate it. >> thanks. a lot more ahead. just ahead tonight, breaking news in the crash of metro jet 9268. new reporting on how wide the wreckage spilled out and what it says could have brought the airliner down. he camera. except how you take a photo... find a photo... share a photo... ooh, mom's gonna love that one. your photos themselves have changed too. they move now. and the camera shoots video in 4k. you can even shoot slo-mo in hd. wait for it... splash! so yeah, that's what's changed.
6:33 pm
his day of coaching begins with knee pain, when... this is brad. hey brad, wanna trade the all day relief of two aleve for six tylenol? what's the catch? there's no catch. you want me to give up my two aleve for six tylenol? no. for my knee pain, nothing beats my aleve. can't afford to let heartburn get in the way? try nexium 24hr, now the #1 selling brand for frequent heartburn. get complete protection with the new leader in frequent heartburn. that's nexium level protection.
6:34 pm
6:35 pm
6:36 pm
welcome back. we do have some breaking news to report. the russian airbus that went down in egypt sinai desert. russia 24 delivered information that now, if true, could say a lot about the dementions of the debris field and by extension what caused the crash. we cannot independently confirm this. cnn cannot, but russia 24 is reporting that the tail ended up five kilometers or about three miles away from the rest of the wreckage. also reporting that showed no signs of fire damage, which innetwork reports that the tail came off before the fire started. there's that and on the security front, the u.s. embassy in cairo warning employees to avoid travel to the sinai until investigators figure out what happened. that's just a couple of the latest of a string of developments today. more tonight from brian todd.
6:37 pm
>> reporter: tonight a u.s. official tells cnn what the pentagon calls a heat flash in midair shortly before the plane crashed. perhaps the signature of an explosion. contrasting the report from a news agency saying none of the recovered bodies of passengers show evidence of explosive impact. tonight cnn has learned despite that report, u.s. government experts still aren't ruling out the possibility of a bomb onboard, even as they weigh other scenarios. >> other than a bomb, what could cause a catastrophic event? >> history of fatigue cracks that were discovered after maintenance repairs have been done. planes where the skin has disintegrated. that kind of catastrophic failure, we have issues about cargo hold, we have issues on engine. >> reporter: experts say the security at sharm el sheikh airport has to be investigated. how rigorous is security at that airport? >> the sharm el sheikh airport has multiple layers of security.
6:38 pm
initially upon arrivaling at the airport driveway and then prior to check in and upon check in itself. as at any airport in the world, there are a number of ways to get a bomb aboard and whether it's through a person entering through regular check-in process. >> reporter: if a bomb did bring down this plane. the isis affiliate claimed responsibility, but analysts say that group likely doesn't have the capability to get a bomb on to a passenger plane. they say two terrorist organizations full it off. tied to al qaeda's branch in syria. developing bomb making capability and would be motivated to stroike at a russin commercial plane because the russians are bomb thel in syria. and al qaeda in yemen. >> al asari who is constantly
6:39 pm
coming up with more sophisticated devices. he's been experimenting, it is believed, with new generations of shoe bombs and new generations of underwear bombs. >> and brian todd joins us. now, what more are you learning about the airbus' tail? >> anderson, in the course of reporting on this incident over the past couple of days, we've learned that this very same aircraft in november of 2001 had what's called a tail strike. in that incident, it was landing in cairo. it was operated by another airline at the time. it was landing in cairo and the nose was too high. so, the tail struck the tarmac and it sustained considerable damage. now, airline officials of this particular russian airline say that that was completely repaired and that it passed all the inspections since then. but we've had several airline security and safety experts tell us that in these inspections, it's very sometimes easy to miss maybe a slight fracture or other stress point in that part of a plane. and it could have gone
6:40 pm
undetected. some kind of a problem with the tail could have gone undetected. so, with the new information tonight that the tail is somewhat apart from the rest of the wreckage, that could bear out some possible theory that maybe that particular tail strike in november 2001 could have had a bearing on what happened on saturday. >> all right, brian, thank you very much. we bring in our experts from brian todd's report and aviation expert and former transportation mary sciavo. paul, do you think terror could be a prime -- >> i'm pretty skeptical it's criticism at this point. no full throttle claim of responsibility from any terrorist group. on saturday the isis affiliate put out an eight-line statement. if this was the terrorist attack, the biggest win since 9/11 to take down a russian passenger jet. even isis doesn't believe it is isis affiliate in sinai has been
6:41 pm
responsible. a very lukewarm response from the group in iraq and syria and a video put out today, but no new information and no corroborating data and complete silence from al qaeda, which would also be surprising if they had carried this out. they would want to get the message fast out on social media and also, especially give on the fact that their rival isis put out this claim. >> they claimed responsibility for things in the past that they had their hand in. >> isis has a mixed record and al qaeda has a better record, but mixed record for isis. >> les, do you make of this heat flash? >> it could be a multitude of things. i don't understand the technology behind sensing the heat flash. but we saw something in fort lauderdale on thursday with a 767 with a surmisable fuel leak. if this happened in flight and was a serious situation and the airplane got to the point where or the engine ignited.
6:42 pm
what we would call a catastrophic fire engine failure type of situation, it would be possible it could have caught to the rest of the airplane and caused this heat sensing device to, you know, activate. but, you know, at this point it's really anybody's game. you can look at various, at various other aspects. would the heat have been noticed had the airplane just broken apart for what we're talking about in the tail strike? you know, that's a hard thing. this is 14 years after that tail strike occurred. did it cause fatigue? we're talking about composite material that really has not been under a historic study for a long period of time. they could have missed some sort of crack. one thing i have been considering is the performance aspect of the airplane. this airplane was loaded with over 200 people. you don't see that airplane being loaded that heavily in the united states. >> really? >> well, you really don't. you know -- >> for safety reasons? >> not so much for safety reasons, but, you know, a lot of
6:43 pm
airlines in the states are going to lay flat seats so less density in it. but this is a charter airplane and they want to pack as many people in as they can. but not a safety issue with that many seats, let me be clear about that. what i'm saying a heavy loaded airplane with passengers and heavily loaded with fuel for its destination and now gets up to an altitude that is, could bring it to a point where it's in a performance limitation and up against high speed limits and also up against its low-speed limits where an aerodynamic stall could have occur. you know, if it fell out of the sky for any of those reasons that the airbus systems didn't react, possibly it could have overstressed the airplane and now we had a tail break off because -- >> the tail of the plane, which, according to this russian agency was found three miles from the rest of the wreckage with a clean break. to you, what does that say if that is, in fact, true. >> to me it says it exited the
6:44 pm
plane before the explosive event and before the fire engulfed the plane. and, you know, we don't have to look too much farther. when i investigate an accident or a crash, i always go back to other crashes that i worked on. you have china 6/11 and in that case the tail strike which was repaired and not well, it brought a plane down almost two decades later. and i would like to say that a bad repair is like a ticking time bomb because once it's on the plane, it stays with the plane forever and you can't see under a paint job under you do ultrasonic or other testing. and a lot of nation don't require that ever. >> paul, the fact that u.s. embassy is now warning employees, not to travel anywhere in the sinai penning the outcome in the investigation. i mean, it could just be prudence on their part. >> i don't think we should read too much into that. the northern part of sinai, especially, has been a big conflict zone. >> people should stay out of that region.
6:45 pm
>> presuming that also means sharm el sheikh. people shouldn't go there. on the southern tip of sinai. israeli tourists, european tourists and all sorts of people traveling there all the time and interesting advice coming out of the state department not to go there right now in terms of employees of the state department, anderson. >> you look at this flight data and flight radar 24, the flight recorder, the flight data tracker. plane fell from 31,000 feet to 26,000 feet in just the final 26 second, i think. >> yeah, i i'm glad you brought that up. it was at 31,100 feet and went up to 33,500. you know, in two seconds, a lot of erratic debt and they do claim it's real time. how accurate this information is curious to me. but what is really curious to me, it showed a trend of a descending airplane and as we've discussed, this thing has been down to, it went down to a
6:46 pm
stalling speed. it went down to 62 knots. that's not sustainable in any type airplane. but the point being is that how did flight radar 24 track this for 24 minutes if the airplane broke apart. no more electricity. to that transmitter. >> that's interesting. >> that's one of the considerations. >> a lot of question to be answered. thanks very much. appreciate you being with us. more breaking news and we'll bring you the projected winner in a big governor's race as well as recreational marijuana. that's next. the markets change, at t. rowe price, our disciplined investment approach remains. we ask questions here. look for risks there. and search for opportunity everywhere. global markets may be uncertain. but you can feel confident in our investment experience... ... around the world. call a t. rowe price investment specialist, or your advisor... ...and see how we can help you

6:51 pm
election with the biggest national implications today not about candidates but more about pot. it would legalize medical marijuana and recreational marijuana which is different from colorado and washington state which had medical marijuana in place before they approved the drug recreationally. the amendment had a wide number of people backing it including descendants of william howard taft. the part of the amendment that said growing and selling pot would be controlled by ten site specific farms with exclusive control of the industry in the state and that set off a wave of opposition having less to do with pot and more to do with
6:52 pm
anti-monopoly concerns. >> one of the arguments was it could be a pig moneymaker for the state. is that spelled out in this amendment in. >> that was foreseen in the amendment. there is a 15% special flat tax to be imposed that would go to the state and 5% on stores that sell the drug to be used for public safety, for health, first responders, infrastructure, including roads and bridge repair. that amendment was going to set up the state for a big payday but it looks like it's not going to happen. >> we have more election results. we are a year from the presidential election but what happened in kentucky? >> i think you can call this a shock. the tea party favorite matt bevin won and jack conway.
6:53 pm
kentucky sends republicans to washington including mitch mcconnell. and the backdrop of the race was about national issues, whether the state could continue pushing ahead with obamacare which was what conway was calling for or if the state would back away from obamacare. the other issue that got play in the state was same-sex marriage because kentucky is the home state of county clerk kim davis who set off a firestorm by refusing to give marriage licenses to same-sex couples. matt bevin gave davis backing and tried to eadvantage list republicans to vote for him and conway took a rule of law approach to the case. it appears that bevin is going to win and republicans have another governor seat.
