tonight, too big debates, one in new york city one in new jersey. diana was there is the candidates vying to replace governor christie had added. what he got? >> the packed arena here in the first two candidates, kim guadagno and phil murphy took the stage in the first debate. pensions, property taxes heated up fast especially when it came to the issue of guns. and las vegas is shooting. >> i am strongly of the opinion that i would sign all of the gun safety laws that have been vetoed by the christie, guadagno administration. >> if that's a bad then why has goldman sachs invested in gun manufacturers over the years? and how much is he profited by that investment? >> they attacked often and as expected murphy attacked.
[reading names] on his relattionship with governor christie. the debate ran about an hour with issue spanning from immigration to murphy calling for a sanctuary state to wildstein, the hollywood producer currently under attack for allegations of sexual misconduct. guadagno attacked murphy for not calling it out soon enough. >> i want to call phil murphy a coward. he did not start to talk about harvey wildstein until after my campaign today listed the tens of thousands of dollars that he raised as part of his position as finance chair for the dnc. >> murphy ended the night with a 14-point lead according to a recent poll. but, guadagno is closing that
gap. >> thank you. let's bring in some political experts to weigh in on what happened. i'm joined by jeanette hoffman and bill. bill, you heard diana's report. the poll numbers have tighten. i think kim guadagno tonight i think she won the debate, what you say? >> it's been so what you decid d as win. phil murphy didn't want to make any gas or news that i think he accomplish that. i think most of us thought this race would type. there democrats were sitting on 30-point lead. this will tighten further. i give guadagno credit for a relentless messaging campaign focused on property taxes. i don't know if it will be enough. >> she brought that up even in relation to the dhaka answer.
do you think there is a moment that set the tone? >> you look at this as a boxing match. the punches and the counter punches might not be a knockout but i think she won but first was she was on message about property taxes and i think the line that stood out for me was when she called bill murphy a coward for not standing up to harvey wildstein. >> wildstein, guns, trump, seems like murphy spent the whole night talking about national issues completely unrelated to affordability. and kim had him on the row. i would say from the opening statement i don't think he recovered. >> i don't agree with you. first of all, what was supposed to be accomplished? murphy was trying to get through a debate without having major mistakes, he accomplish that.
guadagno was on message in the beginning. i do think she was scoring points of the tax message. i don't think the general election public care one bit about harvey wildstein. and they don't care about goldman sachs. because i see in the polling they don't care about it. >> i think the call about the hypocrisy. like remington and goldman sachs he weaved and ducked. >> it's way more exciting than we anticipated. we caught up with governor christie earlier today and asked him about the debate. and classic form christie is above the battle. >> sitting around popping popcorn, can't wait. these things if you're in them they consume you. so, that's a governor. and another point of this, he
certainly is not helping her at all. i saw tonight that she took a shot at him. you think she did that because he's not helping? >> there two different people. the lie that i like that she used was that the inconvenient truth is chris christie is [inaudible] the ballot, i am. the majority of voters look at kim, she's no chris christie. the two different people. i thought that was a great line. >> is this embarrassing for the republicans? a governor not helping. >> the plan was to ride the coattails of christie. when that ship sailed it was over. chris christie is a horrible track record right now and the general public. i don't know if that translate over to kim guadagno. but it's embarrassing to have the back-and-forth and she's getting zero help from him.
from that standpoint running away from christie's her best bet. >> i think her big mama was calling him a coward. mayor bill diblasio battling -- outta nowhere had the crowd with him pretty much from go. >> if i had my head in the potato peel and i popped it out, i'd vote for him too. but we have four years and he's done nothing. >> thanks guys. the vfw in new jersey shut down by the state organization. some of the members crying racism. they said if we were a white outpost they would've helped us. the state said otherwise. they have something to do with the fact that they all the organization $44000 and potentially up to $100,000 in back taxes. ashley has a story. >> the vfw post in ewing, new jersey was shut down by the
administration more than a year ago. members of the predominantly black posts say it's because of racism. i caught up with julius nelson who is commander of the postman spee-04 move down. he admits money tackling under previous leadership. there $40000 in debt. they said that the debt grew to more than 60000 but membership is getting things on the right track and had no time to turn the financial hardship around. >> number one where majority black. number two. it was railroad because they want to sell the property. number three, they never gave us a chance to help us keep our post open even though they came to the post twice and said that he was not going to close.
>> 's is the real reason there shut down is because the state had every intention to make a prophet to the nearby college of new jersey. the state council administration did not return a request for comment. >> this ashley. let's bring in the panel to break this down. we have an immigration attorney with us, frank, district chief of staff, good to have a here. and wayne smith, former mayor of irvington. why is it every time someone gets themselves in hot water someone is a racist? >> i don't believe that you don't either. certainly the new york post style makes it a racial issue. a group of veterans who happen to be black who are in financial trouble. >> he's almost blaming the media on this, but your hearing the members stand up and say thiss s racism. i don't know back taxes and debt
have anything to do with black or white. >> there's some issues going back to 2009. i'll jump on the bandwagon, this is something the media can contribute to a lot of ways. but i'm not a true believer that raises at the core of it. >> it seems like there's room for discussion on whether an organization could help out. a lot more about mismanagement than anything else. >> i saw there is a 90 day suspension given and efforts made by the organization to work through the issues. then another suspension, i think there needs to be better management and processes on how to handle it. >> it seems to me when you have 75% of the nfl are black players making this money, seems we have effectively moved on. >> when the rules are public and everybody can see it, we can
