connor lamb ran almost like a moderate republican. he did not side with nancy pelosi. he said he was going to work and get things done. he had a lot of issues he sided with republicans on and you got to look at how he ran. if they want to look at winning races and want to run like republicans that is their next step. heather: are they taking a page out of donald trump's playbook, going as an outsider? if they choose to do that, what can republicans do? >> they can counteract that by getting candidates who are more enthusiastic, those types of democrats more of a run for their money and stay on message with trump because i think rick succone is this close because
trump made an appearance. heather: he was behind by six points saturday, the president went down there and we have this razor thin margin. >> reporter: look how close this margin is. you can see how effective trump as a campaigner, a surrogate for some of these people running a tight race, look how it makes a difference because he was lagging behind entities neck in neck which proves to me trump has still got it and somebody voters want to see more of. heather: time is 20 minutes until the top of the hour, an urgent recall, hundreds of thousands of battery chargers could burst into flames, the warning you need to hear before you leave the house. this is an awful story. this little puppy is dead after being stuffed into an overhead been on a plane.
