vo: 13 year-old sabrina told a school counselor she was raped by her uncle. her counselor called sheriff joe arpaio's office. but arpaio failed to protect her. for three more years, sabrina's uncle continued to rape her - and arpaio did nothing. rapes, assaults, even child molestation, remain uninvestigated, while arpaio focuses arpaio talks tough, but doesn't keep us safe. so remember these long voting lines from march? so according to the report

11:32 am
before that which by the way danielle it was bound to do. we're much more divided. but clearly since that announcement on friday we are seeing some erosion of her support and more enthusiasm behind the trump support. so this could definitely keep going for the next seven days depending on what else h and given the nature of this campaign pretty much anything else can happen. >> what can the voters expect to see from both campaigns in this final push for votes? >> this is where the vast fundraising advantage that she has should in theory at least pay off. hiring lots of people and field offices in those battle ground
