tv Your World With Neil Cavuto FOX News June 20, 2017 1:00pm-2:01pm PDT
another. nobody hurt. nobody massive damage. i guess as they say, if you see something, say something. until then, stay calm and carry on. neil cavuto is next on fox news. >> neil: all right. we will continue to monitor these developments in brussels as well. as you indicated, seems like everything is okay there. unless we get news otherwise. we will bring you right back there. meantime, closer to home, what is happening in the peach state that has reverberations across the country. here's an example. >> everybody should watch me putting on my "i voted" sticker isn't my opponent can't do that today. >> this race is about what is important. access to healthcare. >> neil: $50 million, that's
just for now. that's how much has been spent in this congressional race in georgia's sixth congressional direct, northern atlanta, where it's been safely republican since the late 1970s. last democrat to win here was back in 1976 when jimmy carter was elected president of the united states. since then, all red, all the time. maybe not this time? jonathan serrie at a polling place in suburban atlanta on what's going down. jonathan? >> there has been heavy turnout today. that's despite the fact that it's been raining on and off. people showing up with their umbrellas because they realize the eyes of the nation are in georgia's sixth congressional district. more dramatically is the early voting. when you look at the figures, 140,000 people have already cast ballots in advance of today's election day. that's more than a quarter of all registered voters in this district. double the number of early
voters that you had during the april primary here. both parties are considering this race very important. a must-win race and the same for the various members of their respective parties. take a look at this tweet from steve scalise. he is the house majority whip who was shot during last week's attack on the republican congressional baseball tweet. he tweeted in support of karen handel saying karen handel is a great candidate and team scalise is pulling for her. john ossoff had john lewis campaigning for him and striking a moderate tone to attract independent voters. handel, and outside groups have been trying to link ossoff to the liberal wing of his party. you can see it in the campaign ads. heavy saturation with all the money being invested in both races. the polls are about to close in
most of the areas of this region at 7:00. but a judge has ordered polls in two locations in the dekalb county where they had some mechanical problems, some issues with the voting machines. those two locations must remain open until 7:30. there's also another race to tell you about going on in south carolina. this is to replace rick mulvaney who -- or mick mulvaney who left a seat held in upstate south carolina to become budget director for the trump administration. but that district is considered safe for republicans. so neil, as you can imagine a lot less money being invested in that race. back to you. >> neil: thanks, jonathan. a long night ahead of him. he's young. he can handle it. much has been raised about the money that's been raised in this race. a record amount for the democratic challenger.
better than $23 million. most of that coming from outside of the district and the state of georgia itself. to gerri willis when has been crunching the numbers. hey, gerri. >> well, this election has been compared to no other because it's the most expensive in u.s. history. more than $50 million invested. at stake a suburban atlanta seat that used to belong to tom price. the district has consistently voted republican for decades. the last time the seat was in democratic hands, 1946. white house spokesman sean spicer this afternoon discounted questions about whether the race is a referendum on trump's administration. the numbers, the money, astonishing. according to open secrets, the winning house candidate spent $1.3 million in the most recent
election cycle. the numbers rose to 1.5 millimeter and 1.6 million by the end of 2014. the georgia race beats out senate races in which the winning candidate spent 10.4 million. both candidates for the sixth district are calling on heavy hitters with georgia roots and price now from his health and human services perch is encouraging supporters for the republican karen handle. neil, back to you. >> neil: thanks very much. you might be wondering about the turnout. we have 140,000 people have voted. 36,000 were not part of the primary in april. obviously something going on here and something that i raise were the republican chairman in the state of georgia earlier on fbn. take a look. >> it's going to break turnout records, i'm told.
you agree with that? >> i do, neil. look, we have rain forecast in georgia. i can tell you right now, it's raining republicans in the sixth congressional district. >> so he hopes. the reason why this gets so much attention is for democrats who are pouncing here to think that this could be their first win after losing special elections in montana and kansas, that this is the closest that they could come to pulling off something that could portend next year. sometimes it doesn't jive that way. but the fact of the matter is, a lot of attention here. if it's a big victory for the democrats, it could affects republicans and whether they can stay united and behind the efforts to get healthcare rework going, tax cuts, the whole drill and whether they stay loyal to donald trump or vice versa. sarah westwood on the implications of that. what do you think, sarah? we obviously look at this race and see it as the way many have been presenting it as an early
barometer of what could happen next year. probably too soon to say that. a lot of money here to wage bets on that, huh? >> absolutely. there's a lot of skiddish republicans in congress right now who are weary about trump because of his lagging approval ratings, his undisciplined tweeting. so for vulnerable republicans predisposed to keep trump as an arm's length, a gop loss could give them one more excuse to stay away from president trump or be openly critical of the president. >> neil: would they break ranks with them? on the healthcare initiative and this other stuff. if they deem him as damaged goods, which is a big jump, then they just feel more liberated and challenging. >> this could empower some of those most vulnerable republicans in districts that democrats will target in 2018 to come out against the president in some of his policies on healthcare, on tax reform. most republicans will probably
recognize the democrats are not going to be able to pour $30 million into every district they hope to flip in 2018 so if the margin is close, it's not likely these results will be copied. so you might see republicans get terrified is if jon ossoff wins georgia 6 by a large margin. that is not looking likely. >> this is a district that donald trump barely won. won by a point over hillary clinton. this is the same district that when it was the georgia primary, the president lost to marco rubio here. so his own history in this region is not exactly robust. but you could use the argument that democrats are seizing on this as another vulnerable republican are district. there's 23 that hillary clinton won where republicans are up for
re-election next year. if you include another dozen that won by whole districts that hillary clinton lost by fewer than five points, those are serious numbers. >> right. that's part of why democrats went all out on this georgia 6 election. part of it is they could use candidates to run in those districts you just mentioned. they need strong democrats to challenge incumbent republicans if they hope to ride what could be an anti trump wave in 2018. >> neil: do they hope to ride on that by flipping 24 seats? that's what they would need to do. i'm wondering if part of that thinking is to target these states where republicans are vulnerable or might want to quit or think of not running in that event. >> that's absolutely going to be their plan. democrats wanted this race to be symbolic for other candidates who might jump in, maybe scare
some republicans that are vulnerable. it's not clear that this race will be able to be copyable across the country. this is not available for every district that democrats want to target. so there might be some symbolic reading of the tea leaves here but special elections are special for a reason and don't always have national implications. >> neil: usually doesn't go the way it's sort of seen by consensus. watch closely. thank you very much. >> thank you. >> neil: as she pointed out, a lot of money at stake here. record number of funds and outside interests trying to make this a statement. rarely does it pan out that way. we are going to look at the money and the implications. if it does tip. even if it doesn't tip tomorrow at 12:00 p.m. eastern time, the fallout from this. we marry money and politics like
nobody's business. tomorrow we'll be all over this and that race in south carolina and the role that money will play, especially from outside regions if it can be put to use in regions-with they can sway this. 24 seats to sway congress. doesn't take more nan a few to get the senate. so a lot of people watching this. so are we. paul ryan making the case now for permanent tax cuts and more to get it done this year. this year! so the man who probably has been saying to himself hello, i've been doing this for a while, the house ways and means chief, kevin brady is next. ahh.
where are mom and dad? 'saved money on motorcycle insurance with geico! goin' up the country. love mom and dad' i'm takin' a nap. dude, you just woke up! ♪ ♪ i'm goin' up the country, baby don't you wanna go? ♪ ♪ i'm goin' up the country, baby don't you wanna go? ♪ geico motorcycle, great rates for great rides.
♪ >> these reforms, these tax cuts, they need to be permanent. i'm here to tell you, we are going to get this done in 2017. [applause] >> neil: all right. and to hear the speaker tell it, by september. that is also the time that gary cohn was saying much the same. that he would like to see something move out of the house by about that same time period. so obviously they're on the same page here. house ways and means committee chair, kevin brady, do you think it's doable? >> it is. the speaker made the case, what we're hearing from local businesses which is go bold, go
permanent and go now. we're making steady progress on tax reform. we continue to meet with the trump tax team, the house and senate will meet again working on this. so look, we have more work to do in the weeks ahead on unified tax reform plan. but we continue to stay on the right timetable. >> neil: chairman, when we were monitoring speaker ryan's remarks on fox business, which if you don't get, you should demand. i know you're busy. but one of the things i did catch, he didn't say word one about the border adjustment tax, the tax on imports. i'm wondering if that was coordinated with the white house to say it's dead, speaker. move on. >> he made that clear in subsequent discussions but he played the case of why the problem we're trying to solve still remains, which is how do you stop u.s. companies, research manufacturing head quarters from leaving the country and more importantly, how do you bring them back. you need a very good strong smart provision to do that.
he said today we'll continue to work with the white house and the senate to get that provision right. >> neil: but not the border tax itself? >> it is not. we continue -- i still believe it's the very best solution to that problem of jobs leaving the u.s. more importantly, how we bring them back. but we will have to remain open as the speaker said to finding a solution among the white house and the senate. >> neil: sir, the meantime, he's talking -- the white house is as well, about having something in the house so they won't debate this ad nauseam in the house. just a vote as gary cohn said, the house presumably moves from there. are you okay with that? i can just envision democrats and republicans saying where is the debate on this. >> we're going to have a full debate on tax reform. as we develop a unified plan, many of the elements are
well-known. as we start the process in the ways and means committee and the house floor, we'll have plenty of hours if not days of debate and consideration of the tax bill. >> neil: congressman, much has been made of the shooting last week of steve scalise. a friend and confidant of yours as well. have you had a chance to talk to him in any way? >> i have. i tell you, he had a very good weekend. each of the surgeries have been successful. they have upgraded his condition, health condition. clearly he's got a long road ahead of him for a full and complete recovery. but he's visiting with his wife, his family is here with him. so each step -- this is a process where not every day will be a good day. each day frankly has been. the doctor at the hospital i visited with today just feels
increasingly optimistic about his recovery. >> neil: what is his mood like? >> he's an lsu tiger a cajun. he's up for everything all the time. he's already engaging mentally in the work being done in the house obviously and just determined to work his way through this. i'll tell you, the scalise family and steve included, boy, they appreciate the prayers and the support like you can't imagine. >> you were supposed to be at practice that morning, were you not? >> i was there. i left just a couple moments before the shooting began. as i'll tell you in many ways, it was a day of miracles that so many more weren't lost that day. so we're just very grateful. >> neil: did you -- you left before this all started. did you hear anything on your way out?
>> no. i left a few minutes after 7:00. the first calls came in 7:10. so apparently i just left the ball field. this is not what you expect to have early in the morning on a beautiful summer day, getting ready for this wonderful tradition of baseball on capitol hill. we were blessed. we had the capitol police there. it was a light day. our pitchers were resting their arms. many had already left from practice. i'll tell you, it is not what we expected when we showed up in cleats and with our ball gloves that morning. >> neil: i'm sure. when you talk to congressman scalise -- i don't want you to compromise private conversation. but has he appreciated the enormity of what almost happened here, what did happen? there was a gunman there not only trying to take him out but many of your colleagues and this could have been worse? >> he does.
his first and foremost thought was for his two capitol police detail who responded both first to draw shooting the shooter away from him and the ball players on the field and engaged him successfully. so his first question is, first response was asking about his detail, which tells you exactly the kind of guy steve scalise is. >> neil: glad to hear that glad to hear you're well as well. >> thank you. >> neil: kevin brady the chairman of the house ways and means committee. steve scalise, recovering from those bullet wounds last week and miraculously so in stable condition. we'll keep you up to date on that and more and how it is otty warmbier died in north korea. what happened, really? it's something that's always
present. you're always thinking about it. what if my cancer comes back? i've been working on this therapy for 5 years now and we're getting ready to go to the clinic. my son definitely keeps me fighting. i want to be there for him when he needs me. that's w what motivates me. i wt to see patients have gray hair. i see myself growing old with my pink hair. that to me, is enough to keep going. yeah, 'cause i got allstate.? if you total your new bike, they replace it with a brand new one. that's cool. i got a new helmet. we know steve. it's good to be in (good hands).
looking for a hotel that fits... ...your budget? tripadvisor now searches over 200 sites to find you the hotel you want at the lowest price. grazie, gino! find a price that fits. tripadvisor. whuuuuuat?rtgage offer from the bank today. you never just get one offer. go to lendingtree.com and shop multiple loan offers for free! free? yeah. could save thousands. you should probably buy me dinner. pappa's eatin' steak tonight. no. at lendingtree, shop and compare loan offers from top lenders and in just 5 minutes, you could save thousands. lendingtree, when banks compete, you win. i love date night. somebody's ruining it. yeah. well you could leave if you wanted to?
>> a total disgrace what happened to otto. that should never ever be allowed to happen. frankly, if he were brought home sooner, the result would have been different. he should have been brought home the same day. what happened to otto is a disgrace. >> neil: now, i asked former governor and u.s. ambassador to the u.n., bill richardson, on why north korea did this now? >> why they released him in the first place. he was sick. obviously they could have let him die in prison here. what do you think got into them saying, oh, my gosh, we have to get him out of here? he's going to die on our watch?
what happened? >> well, neil, maybe he was showing symptoms of decaying after this coma, with this coma. i think they realized that they made a huge mistake. they notified the u.s. government, the state department. i give credit to the state department and the trump administration for aggressively going to north korea, sending a plane, demanding that he be treated in japan, brought home. but it was too late. >> neil: mary, this tragic death has done more to galvanize the attention more than the missile tests. begs the question, what is next? >> the big question, the obama administration went for something called strategic patience, which essentially said let's do nothing. unfortunately, what that did is give north korea more time to develop their not just nuclear
program, the ballistic missile program, but recall, too, they have chemical and biological weapons. just become more and more aggressive. now, there's a lot of room between a strategic patience policy and a policy of going in, bombing north korea. a lot of in between. we can add them to the list of state sponsors of terrorism. we can improve sanctions on businesses doing business in north korea namely china. prevent the kids of north korea going abroad. we can stop the slave ray bore income -- >> neil: or just target china on all of the above. china is a big benefactor. i'm wondering if that's what we refuse to address. the president and the chinese president were trying to work on a deal if they sort of work to deescalate that. that was the missile stuff. now this young man dries.
what kind of pressure can we bear on the chinese now or are we afraid to do that? >> in the bush years in 2005 when we designated a small macau bank as a money laundering concern. they did business with north korea for 20 years. that put a run on that bank and froze a lot of chinese banks of doing business with the north. they too wanted access to the financial system, access that we cut off for macau. so you don't have to make this particular to china. you can make this a blanket policy and say, we're going to cuts off access to the u.s. financial sector for anybody that does business with north korea. by the way, let's publicize the list of all of these institutions to the extend that we can. let's expect all of the in order korean ships transiting through international waterways. we know they traffic in drugs and currency. there's a lot of pressure to put
on kim. >> neil: and on the chinese. why the president said the chinese have helped, it's not worked. at least they tried. you think china has tried hard enough? >> no. that's the short answer. if china was trying, the north would not have food or energy. is a you know, i believe china when you see the words match the rhetoric here. there's other administrations that have tried to rely on china. it's not in china's interest to see a stable unified korean peninsula, neil. that's what the goal of this administration should be. it's time for president trump to appoint one person in the state department or at the pentagon or at the nsc to say let's have a comprehensive approach to putting pressure on the north through the things i just mentioned to you. >> neil: thanks, mary. thank you. good seeing you again. >> great to be with you.
>> neil: you heard about the money going to the georgia congressional race. more than $50 million. the challenger has been trying to take a republican lock on that seat for the better part of three plus decades. more money from outside that district, from outside that state by far than from inside. why do you think that is? after this.
bracing for a tropical storm off the coast of louisiana. a storm warning now in the next from louisiana to the intercoastal city. the storm expected to hit tomorrow. we'll watch it closely. tell your doctor about your medicines, and ask if your heart is healthy enough for sex. do not take cialis if you take nitrates for chest pain, or adempas® for pulmonary hypertension, as this may cause an unsafe drop in blood pressure. do not drink alcohol in excess. to avoid long-term injury, get medical help right away for an erection lasting more than four hours. if you have a sudden decrease or loss of hearing or vision, or an allergic reaction, stop taking cialis and get medical help right away. ask your doctor about cialis. today's senior living communities have never been better, with amazing amenities like movie theaters, exercise rooms and swimming pools, public cafes, bars and bistros even pet care services. and there's never been an easier way to get great advice. a place for mom is a free service that pairs you with a local advisor to help you sort through your options
and find a perfect place. a place for mom. you know your family we know senior living. together we'll make the right choice. >> i'm from georgia. we have a southern accent. these are not our people. i saw people from california. excuse me. >> for me it's about making it the future. what is going on in our country. i think that i'm looking myself personally, i'm looking for fresh leadership. >> neil: all right. whatever the case, whatever your views on this subject are, out of the $15 million flooding this sixth district in the state of georgia, newt gingrich's old seat, tom price's old seat, a seat that hasn't gone democrat since 1976. that was the year that jimmy carter was elected president of the united states. the environment there is said to
be sort of a bell weather of things to come based on all the money and largely outside money trying to influence this race and set the tone for next year's mid-term elections. will it? can it in debby homes is here and marjorie clifton. lisa, this is unheard of money for a congressional seat. i understand the means to the end. but this is incredible. >> yeah, obviously a ton of money spent on this race. $30 million collectively spent on ossoff's behalf. but a couple of things to think of here, neil. this is not a bell weather race. special election races are special for a reason. i worked at the rcc in the 2010 mid-terms. the republicans gained up 63 seats. we lost six special elections in a row. we didn't win any in 2009. it's not to important to read
what happened here. somehow trump will put republicans at a disadvantage in suburban districts? look at the 2016 elections. donald trump outperformed hillary clinton by 5% in suburban areas. the suburban districts are battle grounds whoever the president is. so just don't read much into -- >> neil: you sound like you're preparing for a republican defeat. >> no. i think handel will win. >> neil: do you read much into that? it puts pressure on democrats if ossoff does win this and the expectation would be that they can build on this momentum? special elections offered that opportunity. this has been an interesting development in this district. everyone in the democratic party seems to have been making this about donald trump. is it? >> i think that's the only thing that democrats have to push on right now, is donald trump. there's not really been a lot of
policy or anything passed since he took the office. i think people are looking at, you know, a time where what is the temperature? what are people thinking? the miscalculation has everybody thinking can we really judge what the outcome of the election will be? a lot of that money is about momentum in their eyes. candidly what i think is $50 million, regardless of republicans or democrats pouring that kind of money into an election at a time candidly where approval of government systems, our electoral system is at an all-time low, what $50 million will do for a school system in georgia. >> neil: that's always the issue. but what about this amount of money going into this and expecting that it can build for democrats? i think about republicans and whether some of these two dozen or so republican congressmen in districts that hillary clinton won will feel vulnerable or will feel that they should separate themselves from donald trump.
some of them maybe not run at all. you can see how this can build and feed on itself. >> absolutely. if ossoff wins tonight, it will be a huge symbolic win for the democratic party and the republicans in the hillary clinton district, yeah, they should feel vulnerable. millions of dollars will be pouring into races for congress to try to defeat them. so you have to stay on your toes. this is politics. it's not bean bags. what i would add to this. i don't think there's been enough attention. ossoff has been running as a moderate and an independent. he's not be running as a socialist left winger. that's also a lesson for the left. their politics, they don't sell in a lot of these places. >> neil: marjorie what do you think of that? that he's not opted to have the big liberals come down to the
district, maybe they tried or whatever but he's not interested in that. >> yeah, again, it's taking the temperature of a given state. it's like what we talk about with blue dog democrats. they look different throughout the country. coming out of the last election, 70% of americans were in the middle ground. they didn't know where to identify. that's something very important to listen to, is branding. how that carries. the reason that georgia is so important, donald trump won by 1 point. so it was that state that was up for grabs. i think you'll see trending in a lot of other places. even here in texas, texans turned out to vote in the same rate as they did in california, it would be a democratic state. voter turnout is the name of the game. >> a lot of people say this will be a defining moment, whether we get tax cuts or the healthcare rework. if republicans lose, then
they're going to be antsy and they might back away from the president. is that a bit too much or what? >> i think washington wants to read into too many things. if i was voters or viewers at home, i'd be cautious. a lot of people got things wrong the last time and they have a mentality against president trump that prevents them from being objective about anything. just to go on the record, i think handle will put it off. democrats and ossoff will spend about $30 million on this election. they have to retain 194 seats and convert 24 seats just to have a one-seat majority in the house. so they're going to spends is $744 million just to convert those seats? not to mention -- >> neil: i think they're looking for momentum. they don't have to -- >> the point i'm making is i would be very cautious not to read into whatever happens tonight. special elections are special for a reason. >> if i could add to that. something that might be
influencing the turnout today. something beyond everyone's control? the weather. it's thunderstorming in atlanta. >> neil: who that benefits? we'll see. thanks, ladies. >> thanks, neil. oscar de la hoya, one of the best to don gloves what he makes an ultimate fighter challenging an ultimate boxer? some say this will be the ruination of both sports. what does oscar think? after this. with shrimp crusted with kettle chips. or new, over-the-top lobster and shrimp overboard. but it can't last, so hurry in.
>> neil: all right. think quick. who is the heavyweight boxing champion of the world? who is the middle weight champion of the world? the lightweight boxing champion of the world? the in between welterweight -- that's it. gone are the days that we knew that at the top of our head. we have so many people handling this. golden boy promotions founder, oscar de la hoya, one of the
greatest ever. you keep getting younger. >> well, thank you. >> neil: what do you think? we have floyd mayweather and connor mcgregor. what do you think? you didn't like it. you said my interest is in the health of boxing as a whole. if floyd mayweather came out of retirement to take open keith one-time thurmond, i'd be the first in line for the ticket but not this one. >> it's not about me disliking floyd mayweather or connor mcgregor for that matter. it's a matter of protecting both sports. ufc has connor mcgregor, who is one of best fighters the ufc has produced. he's an amazing fighter -- >> can he do all of this -- he's restricted, right?
>> he will have to fight the probably the best boxer of our generation 12 rounds -- >> neil: he can't do what he can do. >> it's going to be difficult for connor to pull this off. but look, it is what it is. i'm just -- >> neil: do they have these ultimate fighters when you were fighting? >> they didn't. i was wearing pampers and crawling on the floor. >> neil: if this goes well, it will be a box office bonanza. >> should be a blockbuster bonanza. that's why this fight is being billed as "the money fight." but to me, boxing is not about money. boxing is about deliverying the best fighting possible to the viewing audience. >> neil: people don't get into boxing anymore. why is that? >> i would have to disagree. >> neil: he told me that negative question. i don't know why. where that came from. go ahead. >> the last fight with staged
with alvarez and chavez generated more than one million pay per view homes, sold out the arena -- >> neiit will generate another 2.3 million -- >> neil: pure boxing. >> pure boxing. the best versus the best. >> neil: what i'm reading, boxing is declining in rest and ultimate fighting is rising in interest. this is a way to keep both sports vibrant. i don't think ultimate fighting needs it. i think boxing does. that's why this fight came to be. >> i actually hope that the connor mcgregor mayweather fight is a terrific fight, one for the ages. ends in a knockout and both sports why. >> neil: right now you think mayweather will win? he has the advantages? >> right. mcgregor cannot choke hold,
grapple, use his -- >> neil: how is he doing it? he will be boxing? >> boxing. >> neil: that will be a disaster. >> it's like michael jordan trying to play baseball. he was terrible at it. he was the best basketball player ever. >> neil: but now you're the arranger. you talked about -- that's another thing. don't know most of these guys. i knew you and everybody you fought. sugar ray leonard, larry holmes, joe foreman. what happened? >> we are entering in this era where the new golden era of boxing. we've had terrific fights without the year. we're just -- >> neil: nobody knows about it. >> we're surviving that fight that took place -- i have to say. it was a dud. mayweather against pacquiao. >> neil: yeah, you were ruthless in describing that.
>> you have to be. >> neil: can either of those guys get back? you said it was a total waste of time. >> and we're just surviving it and coming back -- >> neil: were they ticked off? >> they were ticked off. >> neil: they were? >> what are you going to do? >> neil: you been one of the few greats that has hung on to his money and then some. a lot gravitate towards you. you can promote. i think a lot of champs lost all their money from nefarious managers and money guys. how do you advise the young guys coming up? >> i think the key is to obviously surround yourself with smarter people than yourself. i believe that's key. the same time, you have to know how to diversify yourself. you have to know -- >> neil: you were very good at marketing. >> of course. it's key. >> neil: that's where you and i are will like twins.
we have a way with charisma. >> neil: if you take a look at my portfolio and my diversification, it's very diverse. i made smart moves. >> neil: and you invested well. you didn't spend it on -- >> i don't have 50 cars or -- i drive a prius. >> neil: do you >> yes. >> neil: wow. you can do a little better, can't you? that's fine. >> i save money on gas. >> neil: as if you need that. thanks, oscar. that fight alvarez and triple g. >> absolutely. >> neil: don't bother with mayweather and mcgregor. >> no. if you want a real fight, september 16. >> neil: thanks, my friend. when we come back, more on the russian jet fighter that came within five feet of one of ours. how do you think oscar would handle that? within five feet of him?

>> neil: talk about a close call. russia fighter jet buzzes near a u.s. reconnaissance plane. that's close. holy cow. why is this happening? provocative behavior, a little bit closer than some of the others. whether off the coast of alaska or japan, we are seeing more of this. >> seems like in the last month, these provocative attacks by russia, u.s. airspace, naval vessels. one of our reconnaissance birds doing slow left turns in the sky within 5 feet. that's about as provocative as you can get. certainly tied to the shootdown of the syrian jet. i think it's going to continue.

congressional races. could decide the fate of tax reform and everything else. look at the business ramifications of both of those races, particularly georgia. noon tomorrow fox business network. we are there. we've got you covered. even though my family does, and leaves me all alone. here's something else... i don't share it with mom. i don't. right, mom? i have a brand new putter you don't even know about! it's awesome. safe driving bonus checks, only from allstate. sometimes i leave the seat up on purpose. switching to allstate is worth it.
