this is the biggest scandal since watergate and now there been reported that investigatingies virtually all of hillary clinton's inner circle. she wants to blame everyone else. chanting -- [crowd "] nting "lock her up mr. trump: you know, somehow i think that obamacare is not going to be her biggest problem. does that make sense? she wants to blame everyone else for her mounting legal troubles.
and somehow, that is not going to be her biggest problem. hillary is the one who sent out the illegal private e-mails. hillary is the one who engaged in a corrupt scandal at the state department. hillary is the one who endangered national security by sending classified information on an insecure server. hillary is the one who lied so many times to congress and to the fbi. 39 times to the fbi. each lie, i mean, every time she sent an e-mail. she said, "sorry, i don't recall." i don't recall. 39 times. each time she said that, that was also a lie and i am not even including that. hillary is the one who made 13 phones disappear, some with a hammer. it was hillary who destroyed 33,000 e-mails after receiving the subpoena from the united states government.
after. and she is also the one, and this just came up recently. it would've been the biggest story in the world. she is a terrible person. it was a terrible breach of evidence. let's talk about it. and frankly, she should resign. she should retire and she should now resign. they found out my fellow electorates here. can you believe that? being a believer in so many different things, she dodged the questions.
frankly, donna brazil should resign. she was just iron from the network. she should now resign from the dnc. can you imagine that? questions, gave them to me, and they found out about it. you know what it would be? chair.e electric front page of the new york times, the washington post. part of a cover, can you believe it? to me, it is such a breach. new student, being a believer in so many different things, to me she got the questions. nobody would talk about that. they talk about donna brazil but they do not talk about hillary. questions in a debate against bernie sanders and she did not reported. real cheating. hard to cover. but we know the answer so get
out and vote on november 8. remember. hillary is not the victim. the american people are the victims of this rigged and crop system in every way. -- rigged and corrupt system in every way. tos is your one chance change it. i do not think you will have another chance, folks. you will not have another chance. in four years, you can forget it. if she were to be elected it would create an unprecedented constitutional crisis and the work of government would grind to in unbelievably inglorious halt. is likely to be under investigation for many years. probably concluding in a very large scale criminal trial.
in a newly released e-mail, john podesta has been caught saying, "we have to dump all of those e-mails." can you believe that? that is wikileaks. to me also said -- and this made a big statement -- john podesta. i tell you what, if he worked for me i would fire him so fast. like the apprentice. john, you are fired. -- [crowd booing and chanting] mr. trump: he has a nasty guy. he is a nasty guy. but he said, you know, you know like you work for people. he said, hillary has bad
interests. badie sanders said she has judgment. she has both. they are pretty similar when you think about it. out, one of the top department of justice officials, the assistant attorney general, is a close associate of podesta. aftero met for dinner hillary testified for benghazi and podesta described him as the man who kept them out of jail. has our country ever had a situation like this going on right now? have we ever had anything like this? this is a good time to make it an important public service announcement because a lot of things have happened over the last few days. this is a message for any democratic voter, and you are
having a bad case of buyer's remorse, in other words, you want to change your vote, there are many states where you can change your early ballot, if you think you have made a mistake. [cheers and applause] donald trump: if you are in michigan or pennsylvania or wisconsin, you can change your vote to donald trump will make america great again. [cheers and applause] donald trump: she will never make america great. she will never make america great. the clintons are the sordid past. we are the bright future. and i say will stop we. stop i am a messenger. i'm only a messenger. i am only a messenger.
he have to do i am pretty -- but you have to say i am doing a pretty good job as a messenger falls top my contract with the american voter begins with a plan to restore honesty and accountability to our government. i want the entire corrupt washington establishment to heed the words, we are all here. to say. when we went on november 8, we're going to washington, d.c., and we are going to drain the swamp. [cheers and applause] "drain theting
swamp"] beforemp: i said this but it is very interesting. when i first heard this i said, give me a break, i hate it. i said it, people went crazy. then i went to a rally with 18,000. i said it, they went totally crazy and then i said it again and again. this has been going on for about a week and a half now i love it. i love to say it. at the corner of my contract is my plan to bring back our jobs. right now, 70 million american women and shoulder and live in poverty or near the brink of poverty. that is so true. can you believe in this country? 43% of african-american school-age children live in
poverty. 32% of hispanic school-age children live in poverty. this is our country. this is unacceptable in america. i will fix it. i will fix it. i will fix it. i have been saying a lot as speaking very openly about the inner cities and saying to the african-american community, the hispanic community, i have been saying, what do you have to lose? it is such a disaster. what do you have to lose? thank you. we are going to fix it. we're going to bring back great schools. we're going to stop the crime. the crime is unbelievable. we are going to bring back your jobs. what do you have to lose? we are going to fix it. as president, i will go into the poorest communities and write a national plan for revitalization. we will have generations of success. to replace decades of failure.
we are going to have generations of success. america has lost 1/3 of its manufacturing jobs since bill and hillary's nafta. you know about that. 1/3 of your jobs. you know we have a highway, a , one-way highway into mexico. and these other countries. they get the jobs, the plants, the money. we get the unemployment and the drugs. not a good deal. that is going to be changed around. [cheers and applause] mr. trump: it is going to be changed around. i mean, you listen to this where america has lost -- oh, we are going to build a wall. don't worry about it. don't even worry about. that's not even close. and mexican is going to pay for the wall and they understand that. they understand that. -- this is lost
interesting. i have been saying for two weeks. i just got these stats. for two weeks i've been think, that is a typo. that is some kind of an error. it cannot be possible. america has lost 70,000 factories. i thought they meant 700. i said, this must be a mistake here. maybe 7000. america has lost 70,000 factories because of politicians that don't know what they are doing or they are controlled by special interests. since china entered the world trade organization, another bill and hillary disaster. we are living through the greatest jobs theft in the history of the world. this is what is happening to our country. we are being treated like we are stupid people. we have leaders who do not know what they are doing. they do not have a clue. it is the single greatest jobs theft in the history of the world. that is what happened. technology laid off 400 workers right here.
honeywell laid off 974 workers making printed circuit boards. their jobs when to china. this is a federal problem. scott and these people in so many places. have kept them. but it is very hard. because we do not fight. with our real tools meeting you make your product, you want to come back, it is not going to be easy. you are going to pay a tax on that. [cheers and applause] mr. trump: ttm technology laid off 166 workers. most of them went to mexico and other places. a lot of jobs going to china. a lot of the jobs are going to japan.
a lot of the jobs are going to south korea. an unbelievable number of jobs and plants and factories and everything else are going to mexico. a donald trump administration will stop the jobs from leaving america, and we will stop the jobs from leaving wisconsin. we will work with their governor, who is a great governor. and we are going to stop it. we're going to stop it. theft, and that is what it is, of america's west 30 will come to a very rapid and. from now on, it is going to be america first. [crowd chanting "usa"]
a donald trump administration will renegotiate nafta. we will stand up to foreign policy. we will stand up to the unfair subsidy activity that is going on, that makes it impossible for our businesses to compete. they will be competing very soon. we will also immediately stop the job killing transpacific partnership. that will be a disaster. [cheers and applause] mr. trump: bring back jobs, we are going to lower taxes on american businesses from 35% to 15%. we are the highest taxed nation in the world. we will become a rich nation again. to be a rich nation, we must also be a safe nation.
in chicago, 3664 people have been shot since january 1 of this year. can you believe that? that is worse than the places you read about and see in the middle east. these are war zones. we have places that are more dangerous. in milwaukee, homicides have risen to the highest level in more than 20 years. nationwide, murders have experienced their largest single year increase in 45 years. you do not hear that from the dishonest media. [boos] mr. trump: they do not tell you that. you they want to protect certain people like hillary. it is getting hard to protect her, fellas. it is getting very hard to protect her. very hard to protect her. she is out of control. a trump administration will work with federal and local
law enforcement to end this growing crime wave. we have a crime wave. every child in america has the right to grow up in safety and peace. [cheers and applause] donald trump: we will also keep you safe from terrorism. hillary clinton wants a 550% increase in syrian refugees flowing into our country. [boos] donald trump: can you believe that? her plan would mean generations of terrorism and extremism spreading into your schools and throughout america. when i am elected president, we will suspend the syrian refugee problem. [cheers and applause] we have no choice. and we will keep radical islamic terrorist the hell out of our country.
[cheers and applause] trumpetp: a administration will also secure and defend the borders of the united states. as i said and as you know, we are not playing games. yes, we will build the wall. [cheers and applause] [crowd chanting "build the wall"] donald trump: the fact that it is 110 degrees in this room, i don't care. think of it as a sauna.
this room was not designed for this many people. think of it as a sauna. and to use a sauna, you have to pay money. we get this for nothing. we have received the first ever endorsement from our ice and border patrol. first time they have ever done it. 16,500 great, amazing people. they tell us the border crisis is the worst it has ever been. you have been reading about it. it is a national emergency. it is the worst it has ever been. you know, you try and get some stats. the worst it is ever been right now. they don't want to give you these that's. just about as bad as it gets, right now. hillary has pushed, open those borders. there goes your country. it would mean the destruction of the united states in a true sense. the immigration officers
warned that hillary's plan is "the most radical immigration proposal in the united states history" and it would lead to the "loss of thousands of lives." hillary clinton would allow thousands of the most dangerous people to enter our country. those countries don't want to take back murderers, druglords, gang members. they say no. let me just tell you something, they would bring them to their country, and their country would say no. get them out. bring them back to the united states. where your leaders are stupid people. let me tell you, that will not happen if i am president.
it will not happen once. [cheers and applause] donald trump: on hillary's was killedung girl named casey chadwick. the killer who had already been convicted for shooting a girl in the head previously, who people were begging to incarcerate or send out of our country should have been sent home. instead he was set free. he stabbed casey in the the and neck 15in the face and different times. people were begging that he be sent out. we are going to make america safe again. believe me. that is one of many. that is one of many. so many different stories. hillary also strongly supports sanctuary cities, like in san francisco, where the incredible
young woman was killed in her father's arms i-85-time deported illegal immigrant. a trump administration will cancel all federal funding for sanctuary cities. [cheers and applause] mr. trump: we will deport all criminal illegal aliens, stop the drugs from bring into our communities and we will end this nightmare of violence like we have never seen before. we will also appeal the obama clinton defense sequester and theepealed the a bottom -- obama clinton defense sequester and rebuild our badly depleted military. we have no choice. we have no choice. that includes great support for
nearby fort mccoy. [cheers and applause] donald trump: i am honored to have the endorsement of more than 200 top admirals and generals, and 22 medal of honor recipients. it's a great group. nobody has it like we have it. whether it is law enforcement, the military, the veterans. we are going to take care of our veterans, folks. [cheers and applause] donald trump: our new foreign policy will put america first. hillary brought disaster to iraq, which was a total disaster. to iraq, syria, libya. she empowered iran. and, she unleashed a isis with the great void that was created president her and obama, the campaigner. i call him the campaigning. he ought to focus on and set of
campaigning for hillary clinton -- he probably now has a conflict in campaigning for her. he should focus on getting rid of isis, focus on getting jobs back to our country, focus on a lot of other things. hillary wants to start a shooting war in syria. a conflict that could for all we know, trigger world war iii. for what? hillary and her failed establishment have spent $6 trillion on wars in the middle east that never end and we never win. they never end and we never win. remember that. now, the middle east is in worse shape than ever before. we could have built our country twice. we could have rebuilt the united states with $6 trillion. we could have rebuilt it twice. they have dragged us into foreign wars that have made us less safe.
they have left our borders wide open at home and they have shipped our jobs and wealth to other countries. to all americans, i say, it is now time, finally, for leadership, for change. [cheers and applause] mr. trump: thank you. in closing, just think about what we can accomplish in the first 100 days. we're going to have the biggest tax cut since ronald reagan. and, she is going to raise your taxes substantially. remember that. are going to eliminate every unnecessary job killing regulation.
we will cancel every illegal obama executive order. there are plenty of them. there are plenty of them. there are plenty of them. we will rebuild our military and we will take care of our great, great veterans. we're going to take care of them. they have been treated terribly. terribly. our veterans have been treated terribly. [crowd chanting "trump"] mr. trump: we are going to provide school choice and put an end to common core.
support the great men and women of law enforcement. that will take place quickly. you know this, right? association,rifle the nra endorsement. e our second amendment, which is totally under siege. we're going to save our second amendment. justices to the united states supreme court who will uphold and defend the constitution of the united states. hillary wants us to think small. once is to believe things can't
change and wants our lives to revolve around washington, d.c. i am asking you to dream big. to push for bold change. and to believe in a movement powered by the people and by the love of this great country. [cheers and applause] trump: i am tired of politicians telling americans to do for their dreams to another day. when they really mean another decade. america is tired of waiting. now.oment is
there has never been a movement like this in our country's history. there never will be again perhaps. but we have to take advantage of it on november 8. we're going to turn things around rapidly. rapidly. stope have to do is believing in our field politicians and start believing in each other and in our country. there is no challenge to great and no dream outside of our reach. there is not. there is no dream outside of our reach. don't let anyone tell you it cannot be done. the future belongs to the dreamers. not to the cynics and not to the critics. hillary clinton has been there for 30 years. and she has accomplished

a week from tonight, i hope we will be saying madam president. thank you, madam president. the time is now, so let's do it, ok? thank you very much. "] owd chanting "hillary >> ladies and gentlemen, these welcome congressman patrick murphy. applause] >> all right. all right. all right, fort lauderdale, how y'all doing? >> beat rubio! beat rubio! [crowd chanting]
murphy: all right, everybody. i can tell you are warmed up. i am humbled to be here to help introduce our next president, hillary clinton. who, by the way, is the most qualified person we have ever had for the job. and you compare that, of course, to the most unqualified person we have ever had for the job. look, i think everyone here knows that early voting has already begun, and it is critical that florida make sure that your voice is heard, so get out there and vote early. look, i announced my campaign to be florida's next u.s. senator because i wanted to show up to work for each and every one of you.
part of that means defending a woman's right to choose. that means protecting social security and medicare for our seniors. that means fighting to protect our environment from the damage of climate change. and working to reduce the gun violence that is plaguing so many of our cities. that also means creating an economy that will work for everybody. and with the future of our economy on the line, who are republicans in florida trying to elect? marco rubio and donald trump? as the president said, come on, man. we are not going to strengthen
our economy with donald trump's racist bullying. we are not going to list families out of poverty with donald trump's demonizing immigrants and muslims, and we are certainly not going to create an economy that works for everybody with donald trump's misogynistic attacks. where does senator rubio stand? when donald trump goes low, marco rubio is right there with him. marco rubio claims he is going to stand up to a president donald trump. really? how exactly is he going to do that if he cannot stand up to donald trump as a candidate? donald trump boasts about sexual assault. marco rubio looks the other way. donald trump praises dictators, encourages russian cyber attacks.
marco rubio stands right by him. more than 160 republicans had the kurds to stand up to donald trump's racist and bigoted campaign, but not marco rubio -- more than 160 republicans had the courage to stand up. senator rubio likes to use the excuse that he is supporting donald trump because he disagrees with hillary clinton on everything. well of course he does. secretary clinton shows up for work every day. you know, secretary clinton has spent decades fighting for equal rights, making sure that women have equal pay for equal work. guess what marco rubio said about equal pay for equal work. his quote was that it is a waste of time. "a waste of time," really? look, marco rubio can stay low with donald trump, but i'm with her.
[applause] murphy: hillary clinton our economy works best when it works for everybody, that we are always stronger together, and i got into public service in the first place because i was tired of the dysfunction, the finger-pointing, the name-calling, and i'm willing to work with anybody if it means solving a problem, and that same spirit has defined secretary clinton's entire career. she will help strengthen our economy, help reduce the barriers to opportunity, from raising minimum wage to investing more in education, reducing the barriers to student loan debt, and finally, equal pay for equal work.
hillary clinton knows what needs to be done and she knows exactly how to get it done. i look forward to being there with her every single step of the way in the u.s. senate. marco rubio likes to say we have to make sure that donald trump wins this election. no, we don't. you know what we have to do? we have to vote. early voting has already started here in fort lauderdale and runs until november 6, so please vote early. make sure your voice is heard. vote for the country you want to leave for your kids and grandkids. right? leaders like hillary clinton who understand what is at stake. vote to show career politicians like marco rubio who refuse to stand with floridians that the u.s. senate is actually a place to get things done. so if you want to help me defeat , marco rubio go to murphyforflorida.com and join us. ] pplause
rep. murphy: let's work as hard as it takes. let's knock on every door, stuff every envelope, make every phone call. if we show up, we are going to win this election, and when we do, my promise to each and every one of you is i will be the hardest working senator this state has ever had alongside president hillary clinton. thank you very much. thank you. >> ladies and gentlemen, please welcome to the stage congressman hastings.
congressman hastings: thank you all, ladies and gentlemen. in 2008, we made history in florida by electing the first african-american president. [cheers and applause] rep. hastings: we did it again in 2012, and we are ready to do it again by electing the first woman president of the united states. i want to get something straight here before i ask the secretary to come on out here. don john trump is a con artist.
he asked african-americans, "what do you have to lose?" if you see donald trump, tell him, "among the things that i would lose would be my dignity. the other thing that african-americans and all of us would lose would the our souls. equally important and perhaps most important for african-americans, whites, protestants, jews, and everybody, if we voted for donald trump, we would have lost our minds." ] heers and applause thank you,gs: broward county, and those that are here with us. it has been a long night, but it has not been as long as the night secretary clinton has had and the day, but i have news for you -- come november 9, we will have a sunshiny vision for america.
[cheers and applause rep. -- ings: [cheers and applause] rep. hastings: we can elect someone who is passionate, competent, who understands the concerns of those who are disabled, who believes we should have immigration reform, someone who believes in equal pay for equal work, who believes and has championed the rights of children and universal health care and three k for children. she believes in paid family leave, low and moderate income housing, infrastructure development that is desperately needed, the protection of social security and medicaid and medicare, and believe me, it is not only the supreme court, it is the entire federal judiciary that is at stake, and we need hillary clinton to bring it back to us. additionally, don't you want someone that will build on the legacy of barack obama? so now then, i ask you -- this lady that i have known for a
very long time -- she has been a lawyer, a law professor, the first lady of arkansas, and the first lady of the united states, a united states senator, traveled to 112 countries. she will be able to know the leaders of other countries. donald trump would have to introduce himself to the leaders of other countries. please help me welcome the next president of the united states, hillary rodham clinton. [applause] ♪ mrs. clinton: hello, fort
olive baptist church. and i could not leave town without stopping at betty's for some soul food, and it's wonderful to be here with so many of my friends and people i admire. i want to thank congressman hastings, who just really came out here and read everybody up. i want to thank the one, the only congressman john lewis, an icon of the civil rights movement. my friend congresswoman debbie wasserman schultz, congressman ted deutch, and i have to tell you, i am really excited and very hopeful that you will send patrick murphy to the united states senate. so let me thank all the elected officials who are here because this is a big deal. there are only now seven days left in the most important election of our lifetime. we cannot take anything,
anybody, anywhere for granted. are you ready to work hard and win this election? well, that is exactly the right answer because we need to do everything we possibly can between now and the time the polls close one week from tonight because any issue you care about, anything is at stake. i get sometimes a little overwhelmed by the fact that i love this country. i think we already are great. i think we could be greater, and, you know, i am sick and tired of the negative, dark, divisive, dangerous behavior of people who support donald trump.
it is time for us to say, "no, we are not going backwards. we are going forward into a brighter future." so how do we do that? for the next seven days, we focus on what is important, do not get distracted or diverted, focus on the kind of country and world we want to help create. that is what i've done. i have stayed focused on one thing -- on you. your families, your lives, your problems. the things that keep you up at night. and that is what i'm doing now because i know the day after the election, that is what really counts. ask yourself what kind of president and commander-in-chief do we need to get the economy working for everyone, not just those at the top? who can keep us safe and lead the world with intelligence and
steadiness and strength? who can begin to heal the divides that have been exacerbated between us and bring americans together again? who can begin to heal the divides that have been exacerbated between us and bring americans together again? well, i'll tell you what -- donald trump has proven himself to be temperamentally unfit and unqualified to be president of the united states. i don't say that about everybody. i have run against candidates from both sides, republicans and democrats. i disagreed with them, don't get me wrong, but i never thought
they were unfit to serve. donald trump is different. he has proven himself unfit, and what he is doing with his conspiracy theories, with his insulting, with his demeaning and degrading millions of americans proves he should not be allowed anywhere near the white house. you know, on the one hand, you've got to feel kind of sorry about the kind of campaign he is running, don't you? i mean, he starts out by insulting immigrants. he moves on to insult all latinos, insults african-americans, insults muslims, insults people with disabilities, insults p.o.w.'s, and then insult women.
i mean, really. by the time you add up all the people he has insulted, that's more than half the population of the united states. but here is the good news -- the good news is there is another vision for america that is on the ballot. instead of dark and divisive, it is hopeful and inclusive. it is bighearted, not small minded. it is about lifting people up, not tearing each other down. it is a vision that says -- and i believe this with all my heart -- we are stronger together. there is nothing we cannot do if we make up our minds to do it, and we believe in an america that is great because it is good. we believe in america where
women are respected. where veterans are honored, where parents are supported, where workers are paid fairly. we believe in second chances, where people who have served their debt to society get a real chance to rebuild their lives. we believe in an america that will lead the world in the fight against climate change. and create millions of clean energy jobs. we believe in an america where marriage is a right, and discrimination is wrong. we believe in an america that leads in the world and lives up to our values. an america where women finally
adversaries. we believe in an america where we are finally going to do something about the violence of gun epidemic that kills 33,000 people a year. we believe in an america where every young person can of or to go to college am not go into debt. we believe in an america where we are going to help people who already have student debt pay it faster, more cheaply saving money. we believe in an america where we are going to provide quality health care to every person and that includes bringing down the
cost of prescription drugs and guaranteeing the security of medicare. we believe in america where social security is based on promise. we will not privatize it. we will not turn it over to wall street like my opponent wants to do. we believe in an america where people making less than $250,000 should not have an increase in their federal income taxes, but the wealthy should pay their fair share. we believe in an america where we grow the economy from the middle out in the bottom up, not the discredited trickle-down economics that donald trump has been advocating or, and you know, by the way, we believe in an america where somebody claims he is worth $10 billion, he ought to pay the federal income taxes. did any of you see the debate? i spent four and a half hours standing next to donald trump, which proves conclusively i have the stamina to do this job, right?
it sort of stunned me, i'm standing next to a guy who flies around in a big jet, lies around in a helicopter, has his name on those. one half of the working undocumented immigrants in america pay more in income tax than he does. we believe in an america where we will wind only have comprehensive immigration reform with a path to citizenship. we believe in an america where women are treated with respect, and earlier today, as i was talking about what is at stake in this election, i was
introduced by a former miss universe pageant winner, who donald trump has insulted and denigrated, and, really, if you are miss universe, you look pretty good, right? but donald trump called her ms. piggy, insulted her heritage, called her ms. housekeeping because she is a latina. well, i was proud of her. she does not let such a small person get her down. but i got to say, when i listened to what he said and how he talked about women and what he has bragged about doing to women, i want all the girls in america to know -- you are valuable. you should feel good about yourself. do not let somebody like this bully tell you otherwise. and i want to say to all the young boys, show respect because
that shows you are a real man and he will stand up for what is right. so, you know, literally, i mean this is so much fun, but it's really late and i could he here all night talking about what is at stake in this election, but i think you already know because you have been out here and willing to be here with me because we know that we've got to turn out the vote. and what that means is that every one of you who can should vote early. how many of you have all ready voted? [applause] secretary clinton: that does not surprise me because ford million people in florida have already voted, but there are millions
more that we have got to get to go out and wrote, and here is what i hope you will do -- talk to your wrens, your family members, your coworkers. it's pretty easy to vote early in florida. there are lots of different places in this county and every other neighboring county for you to go to, and it is important to tell people who got ballot in the mail, fill them out and send them in. because we need everybody to step up. remember, there is no state where it is more important. you know what happened in 2000, right? i was with al gore in miami, and he can tell you better than everyone, every vote counts, especially here in broward county. and, you know, this is not complicated.
if people who support our positive, inclusive, unified vision, we win. and you know, this is not complicated. if people support us, we win. and we will make history on november 8. so, if you have already voted come work with us. make some of the calls. we are making millions of calls. knocking on thousands, hundreds of thousands of doors to make sure everybody votes. you can vote right here at the african-american research library but there are dozens of other sites. all sites in broward county are open from 7:00 a.m.-7:00 p.m. every day until november's next. if you do not know -- until november 6. if you did not know where to vote, you can find out the nearest voting location to where
you live. i want you to do me another favor, if you know anybody who says they are thinking of voting for donald trump, i want you to stage an intervention. i want you to talk to this person because unless they are a billionaire who avoided paying taxes for 20 years and lost a billion dollars running casinos, they do not have anything to gain from donald trump. in fact, they do have so much to lose. every single issue we care about may not be actually listed on the ballot but make no mistake it is on there. talk to your friend or coworker and say, you know, really, you may be angry about something but anger is not a plan. do not be used.
do not be exploited. stand up for what we can do together because that is what this election comes down to. it is about our future. about who we are as a country. and i promise you this, if you give me the great honor of serving as your president, i will wake up every day and that white house trying to figure out what i can do to help you and you and you get ahead. [cheers and applause] mrs. clinton: i really believe america's best days are ahead of us. i do not buy into that dark vision. if we say no, we are rejecting that.
we are not going back. we're going to move with confidence into the future forward into the kind of potential that makes it possible for every single person to live up to his or her god-given potential. we are going to build the kind of future we want to gather and prove once and for all that love trumps hate. thank you.

philadelphia inquirer. thank you for being with us. jonathan: thank you for having me. host: give us a broad overview of the state of the race in pennsylvania with one week to go. jonathan: according to most people it is now neck and neck going to the wire. i have talked to democrats, republicans, you might see a one or a two point lead but it is within the margin of error, close enough that either candidate could still win according to most people close to the race. a poll came out this morning that showed a pretty significant lead for katie mcginty but at this point that is an outlier. most people i from think it is a type contest that could go either way.
host: there have been two debates, c-span covered both. what was your takeaway? jonathan: if you are in pennsylvania watching that race, a lot of it you have already seen. the candidates spend a lot of time on attack ads. raising ethics questions about one another. beyond that, distinct differences on policy and issues like abortion. on government spending and taxes. some clear right-left distinctions. if you can get beyond the attack ads there are a lot of policy differences. that might be a place where senator toomey could make big gains in the race given that he is more experienced in tough contests and mcginty is relatively inexperienced. this is her second campaign. there was not a moment you thought either candidate scored a big knockout blow that would change the race.
so for a lot of democrats that was a win, that she showed she was a credible alternative and could hold her own in the two events. >> why did the democrats recruit katie mcginty and what is her background? jonathan: her background is she has been in high levels of government but behind the scenes. she was a top environmental aid in the clinton white house. she was secretary of environmental protection and pennsylvania. most recently, shoes chief of staff for the current governor. she has been a high level late for a long time but she is only once been a candidate and that was in a monitorial campaign where she finished fourth out of four. so not much experience campaigning in public as the face of a campaign. the democrats saw this as a race that was winnable given democrats in pennsylvania, given a presidential election brings out a lot their voters said they
thought they could win is when you but they needed a candidate to do it and the person who stepped forward had rubbed a lot of people in the party establishment the wrong way. his supporters will say that is because he is a strong, independent voice and his critics will say that is because he would not take advice. they wanted an alternative because they knew they would be spending a lot of money and they wanted someone who would be willing to cooperate with them if they were going to make that kind of investment and that is where katie mcginty haman. she was recruited. managed to overtake him with the help of a lot of money from washington and is now on the verge of potentially winning the senate seat. host: two major media markets, philadelphia and pittsburgh. and midsize markets. scranton, harrisburg. give us an idea. jonathan: it is such a large
state and has such very political views across the state to the point where it can seem like two different states at times. philadelphia and pittsburgh, deep blue democratic cities where democrats really try to run off major margins. then you had the suburbs around philadelphia which tend to be critical in deciding how a statewide race goes because you have got in the 2012 election close to one out of every four votes in the state were cast from the four suburban counties outside of philadelphia and they tend to be more moderate areas where you find a lot of swing voters. so when it comes to the overall picture, the difference between a republican and democratic when is often how big the democrats win the suburbs. if they run up a huge margin or do the republicans managed to keep close and win some swing
voters. the rest of the state, northeast, southwest, central, tens to be very republican and that is where republicans score big wins. so the central part of the state is going to be really big for republicans and how the suburbs turnout decides which side prevails in a statewide race. host: senator toomey has been reluctant to talk about his support for donald trump. he has not campaigned with him. how has that impacted this race if at all? jonathan: it has created some awkward moments because he senator has not endorsed or rolled out endorsing donald trump. we are a week with from election day and he still will not say who is running for for president other than he will not vote for
hillary clinton. so instead of giving democrats fodder to attack him, a lot of folks will tell you it may work that he is stuck between two bad choices where if you embraces donald trump he might lose the moderate voters we spoke about but if he rejects donald trump, a lot of conservative voters that abandoned him, and i hear from e-mail not infrequently that say if he does not vote for trump i am not coming out for him. i am a conservative. as awkward as it has been, it may be politically the best solution he is able to come up with. we will see a if there is enthusiasm or if conservatives come out for him if he does not embrace trump. host: that was jonathan tamari, philadelphia washington correspondent who has been covering the senate race in pennsylvania. thank you for coming out.
trying to do that today with washington looking out for the favored few. i will bring a different point of view to the u.s. senate. a motherlass roots and of three. i will put middle-class families ahead of wall street. i'm katie mcginty and i business because it your turn to get ahead. this is the house i grew up in. it's not on wall street. my dad was a union guy. mom still lives there and she depends on social security. i will always protect social security. high pat toomey and i approve this message because you should know that i've always fight for people like my parents.
>> i remember my dad coming home from walking the beat. i would run and had him. my dad, a good man. i know pat toomey is having fun attacking my integrity. let's talk about integrity. wall street bank should not be allowed to pray on working families and corporations should not be able to ship jobs to china. pat toomey would not change that. i will. i'm katie mcginty and i approve this message. >> campaigns can be tough but in the end it is not about who yells and screams the loudest. >> someone called pat toomey a man of uncommon decency. >> it is about our children. >> another praised his seriousness, it intellect, and civility. >> it is about keeping guns away from criminals. strengthening our economy so everyone can earn a good living.
i am pat toomey and this is my message. >> next, pat toomey campaigns in pennsylvania with patrick meehan. they spoke for 30 minutes. [applause] >> hi. how are you? good to see you. great to see you. >> good morning. >> good to see you. >> thank you for coming out. how are you? >> i am doing great. are you? how are you? >> it is a pleasure to meet you. you're younger than i thought. [laughter] >> that is the best thing i have heard.
>> how are ya. >> hello senator. >> how are you? >> great to see you. >> thank you for coming out. >> look who is here. >> how are you? >> this is for you. >> are you doing all right? >> ok. i guess i am sort of the host here to welcome the beautiful downtown media in delaware county. we are pleased to have two great voices for delaware county. first we're going to call someone in delaware county who is not only our district attorney but who does a great job. first i'm going to call up our congressman. pat? [applause] >> good morning. i want to thank you not only for the enthusiastic response we were given doing in these last few weeks and months laboring
hard in the neighborhoods to help us push toward the end of this vitally important election. i guess you have heard there is a senate race going on. i am reminded every three minutes and i do not watch as much television as most. let me tell you why this is so incredibly important and how i think frankly you are really where you want to be and we need you to be. i have had the pleasure now for really our six years together to be serving with pat toomey and the congress. we are on different sides of the capital but we fight together for pennsylvania interests. they are broad. we work together fighting for open space.
we were together for a young woman who is fighting the bureaucracy. saw her life saved by virtue of the efforts that had been able to be done. we have been together on issues that relate to families from veterans to opioid abuse. these are the things impacting our community and i cannot tell you how important it is to have a partner that understands the people behind the problems and how we can work together to make a difference. i want to tell you about washington. you may see that the system is a little bit broken and one of the reasons it is broken is there is a great big open place in the middle and no matter what we did for four straight years, passing bills, and you made agree or disagree with some of that but the effect of the matter is oftentimes my strong majority we passed legislation on a broad variety of issues out of the
house of representatives and it went and just died in the senate. we used to say, it piled up like cordwood at the seat of harry reid. it was not until that majority came back in, and senator pat toomey began to have a voice on the legislation that we were finally able to move ills and did many things on transportation, education policy and budget. those things that make a real difference as well. we passed roll bills on important issues like terrorism and others out there today. work that needs to continue. it cannot happen if we have that would block. it will happen unless we continue to maintain the majority in the united states senate. let me say this race may well determine whether or not that majority is in the senate and
you know how important it is and that brings me to my closing point about you here in this room. because in life, there are times in which you say, i would really like what i do to matter. i would like the things i am waking up to fight for to really have a chance to make a difference. and when you look around the country today, for\five of the voters going to the polls are going to cast their vote that it is going to be for one party or the other that already is entrenched in their district. it is going to be in a state hillary clinton has not even flown over in the last six months. but there are battleground states and there are battleground counties and there are battleground neighborhoods and this is one of them. right here in your backyard may well determine not just the future of the united states
senate and therefore the ability of us to work together to resolve problems for our nation but i would suggest you the real future of the nation as well. we have a great deal at stake and you can make a difference. what you are going to do. you don't have to do remarkable things. you have to do what you know how to do well. you know who that student is. today is the last day. did they get their absentee ballot in? the senior to go to the polls. the person who comes home from work and you know they say, i don't care to vote. you know who they are. they are your neighbors. you have the chance to make the difference. to make sure we bring pat toomey back to the united states senate. i know you will. i thank you for the chance to be fighting with you for this important issue so it is a great
honor of mine to welcome to our backyard here united states senator pat toomey. pat. sen. toomey: thank you very much for that very kind introduction. thanks to all of you for sending this guide to congress. he is a terrific congressman and representative for delaware county, for southeastern pennsylvania, for pennsylvania. i will tell you the pennsylvania congressional delegation is a delegation that punches above its weight and a big part of that is because the 13 republican congressman work together and get along. we help each other out across his big diverse commonwealth of hours and when the leadership in the house wants to know when they want to get something done, they go to pad and his colleagues in the delegation. they have a disproportionate
influence on your behalf because they're smart and work hard and pat is one of the leaders in this congressional delegation. so pat, thank you for all that you do. i appreciate it. has anybody seen any tv ads lately? it is unbelievable, isn't it? i never saw anything like it. i never imagined we would have these well-to-wall tv ads. they have been running with such frequency that when i'm walking down the street i get recognized because people see the ads. when you combine that with the fact that congress has 11% or 12% approval rating it can lead to some awkward conversations. case in point, the other day i'm in home depot with my son. we're working down the aisle and there is a guy coming our way down the same island my direction and he was looking at me, looking at me, and says --
hey, wait a minute. did anyone ever tell you you look a lot like pat toomey? i said, well, as a matter fact yes. i have heard that. he said, must be infuriating. so, welcome to my campaign world. there is only eight days left. with your help, we're going to win this race. we are on track and ken get this done. the differences between myself and katie mcginty could not be any more stark. one is the whole different way we look at our economy or lack thereof. if you ask me, for the last eight years economy has left way too many people behind. if you are a wealthy millionaire x lobbyist like katie mcginty with a lot of financial assets, you are probably fine.
that is a tiny sliver of pennsylvanians. the majority of pennsylvania and working-class families like the one i grew up in who are working paycheck to paycheck of not been getting ahead in this economy so it makes sense to ask why and if you ask me it is no great mystery. let's look at what this federal government has been doing the last eight years. massive overspending. unprecedented deficits. double the debt. repeated tax increases. launched an avalanche of new regulations. for the first time in history of the country, we have more businesses closing than new businesses being launched. it is because people cannot figure out how to make it work with all of the headwind coming out of washington. i want to end that. i want to restore the vibrancy and freedom and success awaiting us. katie mcginty wants to double down on every field policy.
she is in favor of all of the wasteful spending, big deficits. the tax increases may be the clearest and most stark difference. i do not feel we can tax our way to prosperity. katie mcginty has spent her entire career working to raise taxes on the middle class. when she was working in the clinton administration she was a big advocate for higher energy taxes. cap and trade tax. carbon tax. which would have cost all of us considerably more money with all of our consumption of energy. when she was secretary of the dep she pushed forward legislation to force electric companies to buy more expensive less efficient forms of energy so we'll pay for that with higher electric bills.
with tom with, the first thing they did was they proposed the biggest tax increase pennsylvania has seen since the creation of the income tax. a 20% increase in income tax. 10% increase in sales tax in addition to that and expanding the universe of products and services to which that tales -- sales tax would apply. if you're a multimillionaire like katie mcginty, it is no big deal. doesn't matter. but if you're a working-class family this would've cost the average working-class pennsylvania family $1500 a year in extra taxes. how can that be good for a working-class family? it can't be. she is wrong about all of these tax increases she has advocated. including this adderall income tax she is pushing for. security issues are just a start. i have to tell you, i think this iran nuclear deal is a disaster for our country. it undermines our security.
we gave $150 million to the world's number one sponsored terrorism and that is not my characterization, that is the obama administration description of these guys and you may or may not be aware as we gather this morning, the irani and parliament has still not ratified that agreement. no iranian official has signed that. they do not consider themselves legally bound by the agreement which might explain why they are in serial violation of it. how did that work out for the sailors that were taken out a gunpoint. how about the surrogates firing on american naval vessels. katie mcginty thinks this is a good deal. someone has to explain to me, if the irani and said decided to abandon the pursuit of nuclear weapons, why are they spending
millions of dollars launching precision guided ballistic missiles designed to caring and deliver nuclear weapons? this is a disaster. this is a really bad agreement. one of things that is come to light that is also really disturbing is the many, many ethical lapses of my opponent. so the hillary clinton latest chapter in her ongoing e-mail scandal saga is just a reminder of how much corruption there is in washington and how disturbing this is. the last thing we need is a senator who is going to be a part of this. katie mcginty has a history of problems with this. her devotion to hillary clinton is so complete that she has now decided she has to have her own e-mail scandal. and she does. it is unbelievable but the truth is for 15 months now, katie mcginty and governor walker have been stonewalling a completely
legitimate legal request that katie mcginty turn over the 15,000 e-mails that katie mcginty sent and received while she was the secretary working staff.f she was using pennsylvania taxpaerys' email system. our law is very clear. she has to disclose them. for 15 months she has stonewalled. now there's a court order requiring her to disclose this e-mail and she still refuses to comply. clearly trying to drag this out until after the election and you have to ask yourself, what is she hiding? what is it she has to hide from the pennsylvania voters that she cannot even comply with the law when there is a commonwealth court order requiring it? we know there is a lot in her history that suggests it could be all kinds of things she is hiding.
npr did an analysis of and said the number one elected official -- the number one government official in abusing the revolving door between government and the businesses they were regulating was none other than katie mcginty. she took pennsylvania tax dollars and funneled it to a company her husband was being paid by. the state ethics commission ruled that conduct is a violation of pennsylvania ethics law. the state supreme court agreed. when she was secretary of the dep she took millions and minds of pennsylvania dollars, funneled it to a foreign company to set up shop in pennsylvania. they did. they awarded her with a lucrative board seat but then they went out of business. the pennsylvania taxpayers lost a lot of money. pennsylvania workers lost jobs.
katie mcginty won. i do not know what she is hiding here. but there is a lot evidence to suggest that she has been engaged in some really dubious ethical behavior in the past. others had determined that. i think it is long past due that she disclose those e-mails. stop this stonewalling. stop this refusal to comply with the law. so folks, there is a lot at stake here. it is about whether we are going to restore the economic growth we're waiting for. whether we're going to have security here at all. katie mcginty is ok with sanctuary cities. i think sanctuary cities are crazy. in philadelphia, we have a legal policy that for bids our police from even sharing information with federal immigration officials. special legal privilege on
violent criminals if they came here illegally. it is unbelievable but that is what we have today. that has got to end. so to have to end the policies holding back economic recovery. katie mcginty would be a complete rubber stamp the liberal wing of the democratic party. that is where elizabeth warren and bernie sanders would be for senators to come in and campaign for her repeatedly. at this is not what pennsylvania wants. so pat is exactly right. delaware probably determines outcome of this election. this is the county where the vote can swing a great deal either way and i need to do wellsville -- i need to do well here. we are in the home stretch now. i will be campaigning as hard as i can every day. by the way, my first stop in the morning was outside so it is definitely warmer here. we had great enthusiasm and next we will be in bucks county. we will continue this until 8:00 at night on tuesday, november 8 so we can win this race. i cannot do it without your help
and i have to ask you to take advantage of the fact you have a circle of family, friends, coworkers, neighbors, people that trust and know you and know you're paying attention. reach out to those folks and make sure they're coming out to vote on election day. your personal message will be more powerful than any number of ads i can run between now and election day. that is how we win this race. we do it together. thank you for coming up this morning. let's get this done. [applause] >> thanks for coming out. how are you? i'm doing great. thank you.
good to see you. >> can i make a suggestion? why don't you mention in addition to the industry moving out, there are additional jobs lost because of the mom-and-pop stores closed. >> the knockdown effect. >> you can see that in flint. in chester. >> that is why we have so far fewer people working. the unemployment rate -- >> that's right. >> people not looking for work. thank you for coming out. take care. thanks for coming out, i appreciate it. >> a question. [indiscernible]
>> we got the administration to change the linkage of the answers to the questionnaire to medicare reimbursement so that was very recent. so my knowledge is the patient satisfaction. i know what you are talking about. there is like three questions and it used to be a hospital's results on those surveys created their reimbursement level so it created an incentive for hospitals to prescribed too much opiates.
