tv Representative Ann Kirkpatrick Campaign Event in Phoenix CSPAN November 7, 2016 8:31pm-9:10pm EST
thank you for being with us. >> thanks george being with us so the race seemed to be relatively close to senator mccain with a slight to lead them some things seem to change now with say much wider lead.r what has happened? >> life thinking it was tight early on in the spring part of it was that he was embroiled in a bitter republican primary he ended the winning very handily about 12 points over the closest opponent he guest 52% of the vote. so there's a lot of dissatisfaction with thedi cane in the republican partyai and i think that may have colored some of the of polling with the generalg
election from some sources of the mccain campaign doing their own polling there was confusion among those anti-mccain voters and ann kirkpatrick is actually his main primary opponent they would confuse them in their mind so that republican and dissatisfaction meeting in to the polls after mccain had the primary then they came home that may not like tim are maybe the key is to moderate or liberal. but they see him as a better alternative democratic foot soldier like ann kirkpatrick. >> looking at the arizona senate race what was your take away? >> i think ann kirkpatrick
was a little uncomfortable. -- i , obviously has uhin presidential candidate with the debate stage just as much experience i think she held her own to knock them out with the of consensus. >> as dave battleground state and what impact on the senate race? it look >> able split uh ticket it has been very tight. bennett then in the wake of the fbi disclosures. but it could go either way from the ground game but
mitt he has been maintaininget a double-digit lead since the of primary over ann kirkpatrick. if you have shown it isha getting errol but others said showed him of the death 10 points as high as 18. and then to explain why they try to tie mccain to trump did not work very well because he is his own brandis a across the country and across the world not just arizona. so to paint him as the same cloth as trump was difficult to pull off. because people love him so well. >> and also with became running for reelection both the been very a vocal and
critical of donald trump. talk about this event that took place in arizona. >> has been some confusion about the events. but the strategy is pretty clear that became is worried maybe a lack of a enthusiasm maybe that gets attention in utah and they're usually reliable republican voters for the most part. so given that they just don't like trump and theyea can just about to vote for populati and the mormon population from the mormon pioneers also jeff flake was a mormon. the mayor of mason arizona
was a mormon and a congressman who is also a mormon.so, so what seems programming for that mormon community. of this eastern suburbs of phoenix. >> what about the overall turnout on tuesday? >> sold there is a lot of engagement with those big names surrogates added to the excitement and it willll be a big turnout spec national political reporter for the arizona report -- republican phoenix. thanks for your time. in arizon >> key campaign with a 2012 candidate irani they spoke to supporters just outside

400,000 slaughtered end of president stands by to call them the j.v. team. i believe we must keep a majority in the united states senate because there could be as many as three supreme court justices in the next four years. we have to have the senate that has that split to make decisions that will harm this nation for decades to come for cry believe it isbe vital that we maintain a majority in the uniteded states senate and franklyerallyo those that are too close to call whether that is a compromise that some day will provide 25 percent of the nation's cover and the

that romney i had the honor to know as skipper of massachusetts as a competitor for the nomination of the republican party we disagree and i was running against him for the nomination but we respected each other and admired each other and then rejoin together he represented the republican party with honor and integrity and decency think of what the world be like today if mitt romneyy was president of the united states. [applause] in disembark of his friendship that he couldo take time from his disease scheduled to come to arizona the last few days to help me out. it is a great honor and
privilege to introduce one of the finest men i have ever known, devon are mitt romney. [applause] look at this. it is nice if you tell a a joke laugh laugh but why a group this is. this isn't admirable an extraordinary group by hope you recognize that to have people like this representing you in washington and here at home.d i feeling the cold wind it is good to be here in fenway park. ov laugh laugh but what a beautiful facilities you have here.
it is something else.k i look back and think with that be nice if john mccain was elected as president of united states quicks we would be a verye different position its. [applause] you hear others talk about h the challenges over the last 80 years and you know, some of those like the high cost of health care. the fact that more people of the middle-class have then left behind to and those from 1965 thought that they try to incorporate elsewhere because and make it sothe fa unattractive then that the military is hollow out with russia and china or we sting in their military and in senator flake just
mentioned that.it has been an and is this an awful time for freedom i am reminded of that old joke you have heard about the president when he goes to cash the check at the bank but did not have his license. the teller said we cannot cashier check unless we know who you are. he said would you want me to do? they said the other day rehab monterey odyssey in here so he put a target on the wall and banged into the targets and we knew that must be cancelled recast is jack. and then a few days laterhe when phil nicholson he didn't have his driver's license and he put a couple on the ground to put that into the cup so we knew of had to be filled nicolson we cashed his check. what can you do quite see settled have a clue.
[laughter] would you like your cash in 50s or hundreds? laugh laugh over the last seven or eight years when it came to helping people he doesn't have a clue. if it comes time to a dancing interest around the world but we have had leadership that understands what americorps ought to do and we should rely on those with experience like senator john mccain i don't know who will and the presidency but to webber when will be somebody who is bent to the middle east and understands what is going on and someone who understands what is happening in asia and the south china sea and the military and the needs of the veterans, america is the hope for millions around the world and that man is john mccain.
[applause] whoever becomes president presit will need to elect the people of the supreme court and then work across the aisle because of all the challenges i just mentioned under president obama that have not been solved, and they will lobby over, must republicans and democrats can work together. we have a constitution better checks and balancesces. sometimes it is frustrating when we don't get our own way but the founders were inspired to say we have to get americans to work together to make things happen and john mccain has shown you can have principal and conviction and strengthctiod to of people to get things done we need john mccain in washington and like never before.
