would combat or prevent any sort of recession. i don't think he has done that at this point in time. yes put america on notice. to eliminate the debt in an eight-year period of time, i question that. you have to have a combination of reduction of spending and pay down in what he wants to do, which is a most $2 trillion a year. most folks don't understand. $19 trillion, to be able to pay that down based on a $4 trillion expenditure a year, is nearly impossible without significant reduction in government services. host: thanks for weighing in. trying to get as many calls as we can as we are waiting for ted cruz.
donald trump will be live on c-span two. let's go to canyon country in brenda,ia and hear from who is a hillary clinton supporter. forer: hello, thank you taking my call. i am retired from the california state university and i am married to a man was a republican. i would like you to hear what i am going to say. i am for hillary. i have been for hillary since 2008. she did not do well that year, by now know -- but i know she will stand up again and i am praying so hard for hillary to become our first woman president. i like sanders. but he nice person is a socialist. i come from a socialist ,overnment country and i know for the united states, as the

money. he is not a true democrat. he is an independent. if he were to win, would he go back to his independent ways? we don't need a revolution. america is the greatest country on this earth. there is only one true democrat running, and that is hillary clinton. she has proven what she will do for all people. her husband has proven it was the best time of our lives when he was president, and i think she will do the same. , but be a little biased any woman who votes against hillary clinton is doing a does justice to all women -- a disjustice to all women. host: this is tom, who supports bernie sanders. caller: good evening. i want to say that bernie has .ears of legislative experience from the executive side and as a representative and a senator.
member what hillary answered with when she was asked the question about enemies. she named the republicans. how is she going to get anything done when she calls them the enemy? you have to deal with people. you don't call them enemies. healthier than hillary by far. are you kidding? look at her. her face is all puffy. she is not a healthy person. host: that is tom in washington. we are awaiting live coverage on c-span, taking a look at waukesha, wisconsin. ted cruz speaking to a crowd there. on c-span2, it is donald trump in milwaukee. we will have live coverage of results on c-span tomorrow night. one more final note about the cnn debate. back in new york for the bernie sanders-hillary clinton debate set for thursday.

candidate carly fiorina. iorina: thank you for coming out to support ted cruz. i have been in wisconsin a week. i had a brief detour to north dakota. i love wisconsin. i have done the squeaky cheese curds thing. [laughter] honestly, snow? i was not prepared for that. thise come to appreciate state and the people of wisconsin so much, not just because you stood with your brave governor and got real reform done and showed the rest of the country what real activism and conservatism is all about, but because it has just been a delight to be here all week. i so appreciate your governor, who i have had the opportunity to travel around on the cruise in theh an last session last several days. i so appreciate your state
senator, and i have to tell you, i so appreciate charlie sykes. [applause] .e did his job and vicki mckenna did her job. [applause] they did their job. i think that charlie is absolutely right in what he said to you a couple of moments ago. the people of wisconsin have an incredible opportunity to show the rest of the nation how it is done, to show the rest of the nation what real conservative activists know about the state of this nation and who is the leader who can bring our nation to a better place. i want you to send a really loud and strong message tomorrow. if you needed any more motivation to do that, i want to tell you about something i read in the newspaper this morning. i read that here is a test. where do you think more
expensive wine is consumed than anywhere else in the nation? you got it, sir. washington d c. i was a chief executive in silicon valley for many years and silicon valley, there are founders,tech billionaires. silicon valley has been for a long time the wealthiest area in the united states. they are number two now. gets was number one? washington. you see, what has been going on, folks, you know this. the majority of americans know this. what has been going on for way too long is our government is getting more and more powerful, bigger and bigger, more incompetent, more corrupt. we have a system now where there is so much economic power concentrated in the hands of so few and so much political power concentrated in the hands of so
few, that system works if you are a big company, but it does not work if you are a little company. it works if you are powerful and wealthy and well-connected, but it does not work if you are just an american. the system is rigged, folks, and you figured it out. that is why that system has to be challenged in a serious way. let me tell you something about donald trump. have voted forho donald trump, but i know people who think they are going to vote for donald trump. i like and respect those people. those people think they are voting for donald trump because they believe he will challenge the system, because they believe he is an outsider. donald trump isn't going to challenge the system. he is the system. [applause] he is the system. , hillary clinton and
donald trump are two sides of the same coin. hillary clinton has made her millions. she has made her hundred million, to be exact, selling influence and access from inside the system and donald trump has made his billion's buying people like hillary clinton off. he isn't going to challenge the system, he isn't going to change the system. he will protect the system, preserve the system, take advantage of the system. it is what he has done all his life. it is not just important for you to vote tomorrow. it is important to talk to the people you work and worship with them when they say, i think i'm voting for trump, tell them. the system is not working anymore for us. the system is rigged. that is not the guide was going to challenge the system. the guy who will challenge the system is a real constitutional conservative.
know, in college, i'm traveling around with all these brilliant lawyers, trade cruise -- ted cruz, harvard law, mike lee. i was a history of philosophy major in college. here's the thing i know from studying history and philosophy. here's the thing our founders knew. human nature does not change that much. circumstances change, but human nature does not. everywhere, regardless of their circumstances, are looking to leave a -- live a life of dignity and meaning. it is true that when you concentrate too much power in the hands of too fuel, that power is always abused. to constitution was written put forward what was, at the
time, a radical ideal, actually. it is a visionary idea. it was a radical idea that said each individual life is gifted by god and filled with possibility. individuals have rights, inalienable rights, to find and use their god-given gifts. it asfathers talk about the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. those rights come from god and cannot be taken away by manner government. [applause] but the flipside of our constitution is if you read it carefully, as i know you have, againsttitution bars the concentration of power. it is why a constitutional conservative is so important in
the white house because a constitutional conservative knows that unless and until we outside money and power of washington dc and restore it to the citizens of this nation, the communities of this nation, the states of this nation, we will never fix what ails us. [applause] i have had the great privilege of living, traveling, working all over the world for decades. i have done business work, i have done charitable work, i've done policy work. i can say to you with absolute certainty that it is only in this nation that a young woman can start the way i did, typing, filing, answering the phones for a nine person real estate firm in the middle of a deep recession, go on one day to become the chief executive of what we turned into the largest
technology company in the world and run for the presidency of the united states. that is only possible in this nation. [applause] we have come to a point in our nation's history where too many americans feel as if those possibilities are no longer real for them. we have record numbers of men who were not working. we have record numbers of women living in poverty, young people who don't know that the american dream applies to them. i ran for office because i know to restore possibilities to every american, regardless of their circumstances, will require a constitutional conservative and someone who has the courage to challenge the status quo in the system. [applause] do you know how i got here? i will tell you how. after i suspended my campaign,
there was no path for me forward. of someone someone who is a good conservative is get behind someone with a good path. kasich, get the memo. [laughter] before i everause had a conversation with ted cruz about endorsing him, i had to go vote in my home state of virginia. my husband and i went to the voting booth and my husband frank and i have been together for almost 35 years. as we are walking into the voting booth -- [applause] he says to me, honey, i am voting for you. you know, because he is my husband and he loves me. i get in the voting booth and i see that presidential ballot and i see my name on the ballot. that was kind of a thrill. i have to tell you the truth. i kind of deposit. i thought about all my .upporters -- i kind of paused i thought about my supporters
and thought the stakes are too high. we need ause constitutional conservative. iran because we need someone who will challenge the system. i checked the box for ted cruz. not only did i have a conversation with him endorsement, this is not some deal. this is about what is right for the nation. we know he is a constitutional conservative. how do we know that? he fought for the constitution over and over again in front of the supreme court and he has won over and over again. whether it was our right to religious liberty or right to say one nation under god, he has fought and won. dr. ben carson, a man i have known many years, said something
interesting when he endorsed donald trump. he said, you know, he is a different man private than in public. i want to tell you, that worries me a lot. you know why? because most of the decisions that a president is going to make that are important are going to be made in private. we are not going to be there. we had better know the values and principles that guide their decision-making. we know what will guide ted cruz's decision-making. i know with absolute confidence that when the supreme court hangs in the balance, ted cruz is not going to go make a deal with the democrats. ted cruz is going to nominate a solid constitutional conservative. [applause] here is something else i know. well, ted cruzd,
has made some enemies. let me tell you something. the only way you get from secretary to ceo is to challenge the system. i have done that all my life. and when you challenge the system, when you challenge the status quo and the powers that be, guess what? you do more than ruffle feathers. you do more than rock the boat. you do more than break glass. you make some enemies. i am proud of the enemies that ted cruz has made because they are a demonstration to me that he is a fearless fighter, that he will fight for us, and he will indeed challenge the system. [applause] waukesha, people of wisconsin, tomorrow you have an opportunity to lead the nation. you have an opportunity to stand up and say no. as republicans, as
conservatives, we know we need a principled, conservative, fearless fighter to be our nominee to go on and beat hillary clinton in november, so i want you to show the rest of the nation how it is done and you elect ted cruz tomorrow. thank you very much, ladies and gentlemen. god bless you. >> our next speaker needs no introduction, but i will give him one anyway. he is one of the main reasons donald trump is going to lose wisconsin tomorrow. switched010, no state more decisively from blue to red then wisconsin. when governor scott walker was elected back in 2010, people wondered what he be able to make a difference? this is part of the thing that
is distinctive about wisconsin politics. whoave political leaders run for office because they want to do something rather than simply be something. whether we are talking about u.s. senator ron johnson or speaker paul ryan or an ex- speaker, these are the people that get into office to make changes. i learned something from governor walker. some of you might remember what weent through here in wisconsin. remember when we had elections every six weeks in waukesha? it took a while to count the votes occasionally. remember all that? you remember the fight over acta 10? do you remember how intense things got? there was a time i suggested that scott walker be more like chris christie. i regret that now. [laughter] i said, you know, you need to get in people's faces. you need to be more aggressive. scott explained that is not the wisconsin way. we don't do that. we behave with civility and decency.
howwere here and watched the tide turned in that fight. we have seen thuggish politics. we have seen attacks on conservative values. generally, we do not see it from republican presidential candidates, but we have seen it before and we see how it turns out. our next speaker is one of the most effective, courageous, creative political leaders in this country and you all in this room, and this is what we all share in common here, because we have been through this, we have all been through this. we crawled through glass, we walked through fire, and we tried to recall governor walker. you mobilized and you fought back and you fought back again. they threw everything they had at governor scott walker and he was on intimidated.
this last week when donald trump decided he was going to attack scott walker, i actually thought that that was weapons grade stupid. [laughter] things.led a couple of he doesn't know wisconsin, and boy, is he from out of town. everybody here in this room knows exactly the courage, the character, of this man. introduceleasure to to you the governor of the state of wisconsin, governor scott walker. [applause] gov. walker: good evening, waukesha county. you. to see you ready for a big win, wisconsin? [applause] not hear you. are you ready for a big win, wisconsin?
[applause] what a great crowd. thank you. son havend i and my had a great time going out with the cruz crew and with carly and our friend mike lee, making our way around the state of wisconsin. we have literally gone into church in the shadow of lambeau field. good omen in and of itself. we had a nice rally down the way not far from lambeau in green bay yesterday. i have been on the road with heidi throughout south-central wisconsin saturday. we were eating deep-fried cheese kurds tonight. we were in eau claire, where it was a little warmer. today we had a nice town hall meeting in madison, a couple of blocks from the campus and at the capital, we did not have any protesters. i did not even know what city i was in with all that going on.
halld a great town meeting with megyn kelly. we went and got cheese kurds. last night we had deep-fried cheese kurds. today we had squeaky cheese curds at mars cheese castle. the funniest part is one of ted and heidi's daughters asked why the bus, when we look at the cheese castle, was not made of cheese. , andre over at glorosios tonight, we are thrilled to show them not just the places, but the wonderful people of the state of wisconsin. we are good and decent and honorable people and we are here to tell people across america that we are going for someone tomorrow that we stand with, not against. we are going to make him the winner and make him the nominee of the party and that we are going to make him the president of the united states. [applause]
charlie talked about it, but on june 5 four years ago at this very spot, on june 5 2012, we, not i, we celebrated a victory not just for wisconsin, we sent a message all across america and , we are notf 2016 only going to celebrate a victory here in wisconsin, we are going to celebrate a victory for all of america as we turn the tide for a ted cruz presidency. [applause] you here tonight know that victory for years ago was a victory not just for a campaign. when i say into office, i say we. it was all democrats before november 2010.
state assembly, state senate, governor, lieutenant governor. you sent us to madison to make a difference. we did. people from outside of the state did not like that very much. we were down a little bit in the polls. as the story got out and people saw the taxes were down for the first time in a long time, that they had the power to hire and fire based on marriage and faith-based performance and that schools were the same or better. [applause] when people saw that commonsense conservative principles work not just in theory, but they work in real life, we ended up winning that recall with more votes and a higher percentage of the vote then we won the election with the first time. [applause]
today, the matter what anyone might say, democrat, liberal, someone else coming in from out of state, the reality is life is better in wisconsin. our economy is better. last year we were in one of only 10 states of the country that had a lower employment rate last year than before the recession. we were only one of 10. we have more people working in this statement just about any time in our state's history, almost 69%. that is the sixth best in the entire country in percentages of people working. [applause] our budget balanced. wouldn't it be nice to have a balanced budget in washington? we have had a surplus every year we have been in office. we have a rainy day fund that is 165 times bigger than when we first took office. we have your property and your income taxes since we first took
office and for any of you students here, we froze tuition not once, not twice, not three times, but four years in a row. how about that for keeping student loan debt down? things are better. have the second highest a ct scores in the country. why? because common sense conservative reforms worked. what we did in this state was take the power out of the hands of the big government special interest and put it firmly in the hands of the hard-working taxpayers, and when we did that the taxpayers responded over and over and over again. it is about time wisconsin shows the best of the country that we need leaders who are willing to stand, that the hard-working taxpayers deserve power back in our hands again. [applause]
that is why tonight i am proud to be here to tell you once again why i am endorsing and encouraging to support ted cruz to be the next president of the united states. [applause] resemble reasons. -- three simple reasons. that is a constitutional conservative. right? the reason that matters, particularly here, is because what we have done in this state. as our founders intended some 240 years ago that power should not be concentrated in washington. it should be in the states and more importantly, in the hands of the people so that you can be more effective, more efficient, and more accountable government. that is what you were going to get with ted cruz as the next president.
secondly, we really understand this in wisconsin. we need a president who is not afraid to take on the big government special interests. we have done it here. there is no reason it cannot be done in washington. a couple of years ago when ted cruz not only ran for the united states senate but he came to washington and did something amazing, something we expect here in this state but they don't often see in washington. he actually did what he said he was going to do. he not only took on the atocrats and the liberals, times he even took on members of his own party because they stood in the way of progress. we need a leader in washington who is not afraid to stick to their guns, do what they say, and take on the special interests. [applause] and third, third, as if those philosophical policy reasons
aren't enough, not just for all haveu here, but if you neighbors and classmates who have not voted yet, you need to share this next message in particular. it is a classical message on top of those others to vote for ted cruz. remaining, there is only one candidate who can both win the nomination, that means get the 1237 delegates required to be the nominee to bring the party together and then go on to win the election in november against a real opponent, who is hillary clinton, the only one who can do that is ted cruz. [applause] thes my honor to be be on
campaign trail to thank you for your hard work, to thank you for putting up signs and making phone calls and going door to door. we need to do more between tomorrow and the time the polls close. just as we did four years ago on june 5, we can show the nation what it means to affirm common sense conservative principles, someone who i knew before but i really enjoyed being out on this trip around the state. we are both preacher's kids. a little of that rubbed off as well. more important than that, we both grew up in the 80's. my hair was a little longer back then as well, but my kids pointed out i had a mullet. that aside, don't hold that against me. for people like ted and paul ryan and people like myself, we grew up in the 80's when ronald reagan wasn't just someone who was a political figure.
for us in school, he was our president. positive, common sense focus on how to take this country going forward, how they get the government out of the back, to unleash the american people and to reignite the american promise and to make our country safe again and the world. that is exactly what we are going to get when ted cruz is our next president. ladies and gentlemen, let's give a warm welcome to the man we worked hard to make sure will win wisconsin tomorrow in a turning point to move this campaign in the right direction, someone who will unite the party in cleveland and who will go on to defeat hillary clinton to be the 45th president of the united states, ted cruz. [applause]
sen. cruz: god bless the great state of wisconsin. i am thrilled to be here tonight with so many patriots, so many lovers of liberty. sykes,say to charlie thank you for your strong, passionate voice for freedom each and every day. [applause] way, if anyone has not listened to charlie's interview with donald trump, you need to listen to that interview. holy cow. we,me say to senator do thank you for your strong leadership -- do we strobel,
thank you for your strong leadership in helping win this state. how about carly? [applause] isn't she extraordinary? she is passionate, she is dynamic. she is an incredible business become the ceoto of the largest technology company in the world. carlyot to tell you, terrifies hillary clinton. i can picture hillary thinking about carly, tossing and
turning, tossing and turning in her jail cell. [applause] you know, hillary sent out a fundraising e-mail today. she said, we may lose wisconsin. you know what, hillary? you are going to. in november. and let me say, god bless governor scott walker. [applause] your governor is a rock star. [applause]
man is a strong, principled conservative who is fearless. texans -- chuck noris is a texan. chuck is a pretty tough guy. you know, a lot of kids, a lot of kids when they go to bed at night, they were superman pajamas. wears chuck noris pajamas. wears -- chuck noris wears scott walker pajamas . [applause] they question whether your
governor could ride a harley. i would encourage donald, come on down. i think scott would be happy to give donald a ride, maybe give him a little sidecar that he could hold onto. you're right. it would mess up his hair. [laughter] actually, i don't know that it would. 100 miles anhat hour, that might not move. [laughter] you know, when governor walker stood up to the union bosses when he stood up in an epic battle, and it got nasty, we saw attacks, we saw perez, we sell protests, we saw insults. millions of men and women across the state of wisconsin stood with scott walker.
in his courage and your courage inspired millions across this country. it inspired me. when we stand together as we, the people, that we can beat the special interests that are bankrupting our country. [applause] courage, the same principle that y'all have demonstrated in wisconsin, we need in washington to stand up to the special interests and turn our country around. [applause] all of us, we are here tonight because our country is in crisis. because we are bankrupting our kids and grandkids.
because her constitutional rights are under assault each and every day. america -- because of it, america has receded from leadership in the world and it has made the world a much more dangerous place. i am here tonight with a word of hope and encouragement. wisconsin, all across this country, people are waking up and help is on the way. [cheers and applause] this next election is going to .ome down to three issues jobs, freedom, and security. let's start with jobs. i want to take a minute to speak to all the single moms who are working two and three part-time
jobs, who have had your hours forcibly reduced to 28, 29 hours re kicksecause obamaca in although union members, all the men and women with calluses, who have seen wages stagnating year after year after year. the cost of living keeps going up. i want to talk to all the young people coming out of school, student loans up to your eyeballs, scared, am i going to get a job? what does the future hold for me? the media tries to tell us this is the new normal, as good as it gets. let me tell you the men and women of wisconsin understand
that is an utter lie. it is easy to talk about making america great again. you can even print that on a baseball cap. , do you question is understand the principles and values that made america great in the first place? the heart of our economy is not washington, d.c. the heart of our economy is small businesses all over the united states of america. if you want to see the economy take off, take the boot of the federal government off the neck of small businesses. president, wed
will repeal every word of obamacare. applause]d biggest job killer in this country and in its place, we will pass commonsense health care reform that makes health insurance personal and affordable and keeps government from getting in between us and our doctors. we are going to pass a simple flat tax. [cheers and applause] where every american can fill out our taxes on a postcard. and when we do that, we should
abolish the irs. [cheers and applause] we are going to rain in the epa and the federal regulators who have descended like locusts on small businesses killing jobs all across this country. stop amnesty and secure the borders and end sanctuary cities and end welfare benefits for those here illegally. [cheers and applause] to me tell you what is going happen when we do all of that. we will see millions upon millions of new high-paying jobs
, jobs coming back to america, coming back from china, mexico, we will see manufacturing jobs coming back to wisconsin. we will see wages rising for americans across this country and we will see young people coming out of school with two or three or four or five job offers. [applause] see morning in america again. the second critical issue at stake in this election is freedom. amen. passing just a few weeks ago of justice scalia really underscored the stakes of this election. two branches of government hang in the balance.
we are one liberal justice away from a radical five justice left wing majority, the likes of which this country has never seen. we are one justice away from the supreme court stripping religious liberty from millions across the country. we are one justice away from the supreme court erasing the second amendment from the bill of rights. we are one justice away from the supreme court making a subject to the authority of the world court and the united nations and international law and giving up u.s. sovereignty. ago -- twoo debates debates ago, a question about the supreme court and religious liberty. donald trump turned to me, i have known a lot more politicians then you have.
[laughter] in the that, he is clearly correct. donald trump has been supporting liberal democratic politicians for 40 years. i have no experience in that. [applause] continued, he said, when it comes to the supreme court, religious liberty, you have to learn to compromise. you have got to learn to cut deals with the democrats and to go along to get along. let me be very clear. i will not compromise away your religious liberty.
i will not compromise away your second amendment right to keep and bear arms. applause]d the third issue at stake in this election is security. for the last seven years, we have seen a president who abandons our friends and allies and shows weakness and appeasement to our enemies. two weeks ago -- two debates ago, donald trump explained, if he were president, he would be neutral between israel and the palestinians. -- as be very clear president, i will not be neutral.
[cheers and applause] standa will unapologetically with the nation of israel. [applause] anyone who cannot tell the difference between our friends and enemies, anyone who cannot tell the difference between israel and islamic terrorists who want to kill us, that raises real questions about their fitness and judgment to be commander-in-chief. years, west seven have seen our military we akened and morale of the troops plummeting.
as a country, we have seen this before. we have seen another left-wing democratic president, jimmy carter, do the same thing. january 1981, ronald reagan came into office. what did reagan do? he cut taxes, pulled back regulations, we saw millions of high-paying jobs. he used the revenue to rebuild the military and we bankrupted the soviet union and won the cold war. [applause] chanting "usa"]
i intend to do the exact same thing with radical islamic terrorism. we are going to repeal obama polandassive flat tax, the regulators, stop amnesty, and the result will be millions in the regulators, stop amnesty, and the result will be millions and millions of jobs. we will use the revenue to rebuild the military and be the mightiest force on the planet. applause]d military bell our governed by political correctness. we will have a commander-in-chief who stands up and says to the world, we will
defeat radical islamic terrorism. president willing to utter the words "radical islamic terrorism." if you are a jihadist anywhere on the globe, waging war on the united states and seeking to murder innocent americans, be fully aware your day of reckoning is coming. we are coming for you and we are not coming to negotiate. we are not coming to sit down and talk. we are not coming to read you your rights and arrest you. if youcoming to kill you are waging war on this country.
one of the most shameful aspects of the last seven years has been this president sending our fighting men and women into combat with rules of engagement so strict, their arms are tied behind their backs and they cannot fight, cannot win, and cannot defeat the enemy. it is a moral and mark my words -- it is immoral and mark my words, it will end. [applause] america has always been reluctant to use military force. we are slow to anger. if and when military force is necessary, we should use overwhelming force, kill the
enemy, and get the heck out. let's talk a little politics. [laughter] this has been an interesting year. there is an ancient chinese curse, may you live in interesting times. this political cycle is many things, but boring ain't one of them. withr ago, we started out 17 candidates in the republican field. amazingly talented diverse, young, dynamic field. [applause] what a contrast with the democrats. the democratic field consists of
a wild eyed socialist with ideas that are dangerous for america and the world and bernie sanders. [cheers and applause] over the course of the past year, the primaries did what they were supposed to do, narrowed the field. at this point, as we standard today, there are two candidates and only two candidates who have any plausible path to becoming the republican nominee -- me and donald trump. seeingsay what we are here in wisconsin and across the percent ofe 65
republicans that recognize nominating donald trump would be a disaster. trump electsnald hillary clinton. hillary wins by double digits. it is tying a giant present and giving it to the democrats. if hillary clinton is the next president, the supreme court is lost for a generation. we remain stuck in the same economic stagnation we have seen the last seven years. it cannot happen. we are seeing republicans uniting behind this campaign. [applause] of the 17 republican candidates who started, five have endorsed
this campaign. rick perry and lindsey graham and jeb bush and carly fiorina -- governor,sin's own scott walker. [cheers and applause] when you throw into that mix , you areike lee looking at the entire spectrum of the republican party, the entire ideological spectrum coming together and uniting. let me tell you the last two weeks have been an incredible two weeks. two weeks ago, the state of utah
, we hope to break 50% and earn the delegates. we did not get 51%. we got 69%. applause]d single one ofry utah's delegates. a few days ago, colorado, very different state, two different congressional districts voted. out of six delegates, we won six delegates. yesterday, the state of north dakota selected their delegates. won 18. one.d trump won
18-1, i will take that ratio every day and twice on sunday. and then tomorrow, it is the turn of the great state of wisconsin. country, eyes are on the state of wisconsin. wisconsin has a national platform. a victory here tomorrow will resonate across the country and change the outcome in states to come. if you do not want to see donald trump as the nominee, if you do not want to see hillary clinton that the next president, i ask you to come out tomorrow and vote for me 10 times.
look, we are not democrats. i am not suggesting voter fraud. if everyone here picks up the phone and calls nine other people and you get nine other people to come out and vote tomorrow, you will have voted 10 times. [applause] let me tell you, maybe you are not yet old enough to vote. if you pick up the phone and talk to your friends, if you get 10 other people to vote tomorrow, you will have voted 10 times before you turn 18. that is how we win. this election is going to be decided by the grassroots, the men and women gathered here, by the courageous conservatives
coming together, by the same people in wisconsin who stood shoulder to shoulder with scott walker in a recount battle and election after election. the people of wisconsin standing together. applause]d if we stand united, we are going to win this nomination and we are going to win the general election and we are going to be hillary clinton and we will turn this country around. [applause] it took jimmy carter to give us ronald reagan.
and i am convinced the most long-lasting legacy of barack obama is going to be a new generation of leaders in the republican party who stand and fight for freedom, who stand and fight for the constitution, who stand and fight for the judeo-christian values that built this great nation. thank you and god bless you.

even if trump were to win every to 1237e would not get until california, new jersey vote on june 7. we will see two more months of this no matter what. if he does not do well in wisconsin, his path gets pretty narrow. fixup 33 -- picks up 33 of the 36 in wisconsin, trump would have to win 70% of the delegates left on the calendar. that does not include some of the unbound delegates awarded out of states like pennsylvania, colorado, wyoming, and north dakota. it does not include delegates bound to candidates that dropped out of the race, like marco
rubio. to become the undisputed nominee , for trump to be the outright nominee, he needs found delegates. >> let me ask you about these unbound delegates. why do the states have unbound delegates and who does that favor? >> this is part of the elaborate each state gets to set its own. rules. had -- this
weekend, they held a republican state convention where they elected 25 delegates who will all be unbound at the convention. they can change their allegiance at any point between now and cleveland. believes 18ampaign of those 25 delegates are loyal to him. there is nothing necessarily that keeps those delegates -- requires those delegates to stick with ted cruz. >> if the path is narrow, is it safe to say it is impossible for senator cruz and governor kasich to get anywhere close to the first ballot in cleveland? impossible for john kasich. , they are in this
for a multiple ballot scenario. heator cruz still maintains is going to win the nomination outright. if you talk to some of his advisers privately, they had knowledge that is -- acknowledge that is impossible for him to do. could in theory win if you were to collect all or almost all of the remaining bound delegates and win some of the unbound delegates and win delegates credited to marco rubio and some of the other withdrawn candidates. that is a bit of a stretch for ted cruz. he will have some trouble in the northeast. on aampaign is banking repeat of what has happened in
wisconsin in some of the future primaries where he has had a one-on-one battle with donald trump and is winning. wisconsin will be the first primary state that cruise -- ted cruz has won and more than a month. it does not lend itself to be repeated elsewhere. in wisconsin, you have a united republican organization from the governor on down. electorate that is well-informed. a much smaller universe of first time and new voters for trump to activate. >> based on what you are hearing and seeing on the ground in wisconsin, can you give us a sense of the mood of republican voters?
>> the ted cruz voters are excited about putting a stop to donald trump momentum. republicans, what constitutions -- they are anxious to show the rest of the country they can stop ted cruz -- donald trump, excuse me. saying theyticians are not necessarily big fans of ted cruz. i talked to a state senator who suburbsts the milwaukee , she was a scott walker supporter, then a jeb bush supporter, then a marco rubio supporter. party, united republican

-- millions ofit americans are affected by autism today. >> and this number is growing. years been increasing each since 2002. >> many questions arise. what is autism and how does it affect such a large segment of the population? >> we went to the brain treatment center to find out. it is a developmental disorder that children at a certain age who could not reach certain milestones, they have a problem with communication. autism is a symptom, a collection of symptoms. feeli look at you, i
horrible, not because you are bad. in my mind, i see everything as an overload. they feel horrible pain. one out of 58 in the united states. probably affect every family in the next 10 years. addition, charitable organizations have been set up to provide information to help individuals and families. >> california has made a substantial financial commitment . in california, 300,000 people we
