brian: the mayor of tallahassee under additional investigation. and now we understanding this, when he talks about medicare for all and raising property taxes. it shouldn't be hard for ron desantis to put a stark line between the two different looks of what florida will be like for the next four years. meanwhile, the president of the united states also is concerned as many of you are about a not only this caravan with about 7,000 people but others are forming saying this is a great idea. there is at least two more ready to come out of honduras through guatemala, maybe el salvador up to mexico because it seems now it's almost invogue to get a bunch of people and start marching. ainsley: that's why the president said if we don't stop the first one that's why they will do this over and over and over. he said on monday he would deploy 5200 troops. on tuesday one of the generals said that number going to rise. yesterday the president said it could be anywhere between 10 and 15,000 personnel to go down there and assist homeland security.

3:20 am
might be counter intuitive to think at a deficit we're going to cut taxes. howe are you going to sell that? >> first we have to cut costs. our spending is out of control in this state. i'm a firm believer, you see it in tennessee, in florida, in texas, that cutting tax brings people back. it brings companies back. it creates jobs. it creates revenue that we can then invest in education and healthcare and all the other things. but we have shown the exact opposite over the last 8 years. we have had tax increase after tax increase and tax revenues are come down. so, to me, it's only common sense. my opponent ned lamont is the same. brian: bob stefanowski you are defying. good luck. >> we are going to win this thing. ainsley: we did reach out to ned lamont, his opponent we haven't heard back from him. brian: toss to break, i'm checking my voice mail. the trump administration is fighting to end homelessness

you know, we have a history of dividing people into different seeing you meants and that has caused a lot of problems in the past. and we paid big prices for that let's don't sweep fund the rug. let's acknowledge it let's learn from it and move in a positive direction not a negative direction. brian: it's not true, dr. carson. do you not think that white men are the greatest threat? >> of course not. that's ridiculous. ainsley: let's move on to something so important to our viewers. we love our military. you have a big effort to combat veteran home alsoness. >> we look at our veterans. 1% of our population protects the other 99% of us to allow to us live in peace and freedom. we should be willing to really help them out. unfortunately many of them are traumatized, have a lot of things going on in their lives. so they end up homeless on the streets. and what we have discovered is that just putting them in a house doesn't necessarily

solve their problem or just giving them wrap around services, clinical services and things like that don't work. but, when you combine those things together, we have had a tremendous impact on reducing the homelessness this is a burial model. intraagency corporation. that's one of the hallmarks. all the secretary noe each other, work together, talk about the problems. use our collective resources and powers to solve them. this is an excellent example of that i have had a chance to travel recently to miami, to midland texas, places like that that have declared victory in home alsoness as have 67 communities, including three states. it is wonderful to talk to those veterans and see how just thrilled they are at what's going on. brian: you say 66 communities across 33 different states have effectively ended veteran homelessness. that is unbelievable. steve: how are they getting
3:29 am
the people off the street, doctor? >> well, in many cases, you know, you have to steab relationships because some people are traumatized to the point where they don't trust anybody. it may be a matter of going out and establishing a relationship with them, talking to them, getting them to know your name. you know, sandwich, a hot drink, something like that. and after a while, they begin to believe. because, you know, we have a wonderful country. and we have a lot of people who have big hearts who want to help. and we're finding ways in this administration to allow them to be able to help their fellow americans. it's making a big difference. steve: sounds like a terrific program. if more people would like more information, doctor, how do they get it? >> well, you can always go to in fact, if you just want to be thrilled, go to and look at some of the things on that website like humans of hud. it tells stories about veterans and all kinds of people who are receiving services.

3:47 am
judge andrew napolitano. >> good morning, guys. ainsley: good morning. steve: said the other day maybe he would change did via executive order. then he said yesterday maybe he would prefer to go through congress rather than executive order. >> listen, congress can write legislation that puts sections ever ever constitution into your law and tells bureaucrats how t to. congress can't change the constitution. if the president wants legislation that says for example the congress declares that birthright citizenship no longer exists, that legislation would be just as unconstitutional as the presidential executive order declaring the birthright citizenship doesn't exist. why do i say that? because of the plain meaning of the 14th amendment, which says all persons born or naturalized in the united states and subject to the jurisdiction thereof are citizens of the united states and the state in which they live. steve: it's that word jurisdiction. >> so are illegals subject to the jurisdiction of the united states? of course they are. they commit a crime.
3:48 am
they get prosecuted. they get in an automobile accident, they can sue. they have basic human rights. they can't vote or run for office. subject to the jurisdiction thereof. the phrase subject to the jurisdiction thereof is intended to exclude from automatic citizenship the offspring of those who are not subject to our jurisdiction. who would that somebody in foreign diplomats. foreign heads of state. foreign agents. brian: do you agree that our founding fathers couldn't have possibly foreseen 20 million people here illegally and people abusing the system like russians and chinese as well as central and south americans? >> the remedy is to change the constitution. which is very difficult. very cumbersome and in my opinion will not happen. it would not require a vote of two thirds of both houses of congress. that's not going to happen now. and ratification by three quarters of the state legislature. brian: right. how about legislation driven from lindsey graham that passes the house and senate that makes the court decide on this and have an honest debate about this. >> the courts can't just
3:49 am
decide something. brian: once it's challenged. >> real case or controversy in front of them. but, when a supreme court has looked at this and candidly gone both ways. more recent cases have said whoever is born here is an american citizen. look, the president can't change the plain meaning of the constitution with the stroke of a pen. if he could do that then barack obama could have gotten rid of the second amendment which he hated. presidents can't do that and i think the president knows that. i believe he has generated this because he wants the debate. he thinks this debate will help republicans in the five days remaining before the midterms. i don't think he seriously thinks he can change the constitution with an executive order. steve: changed the subject and now everybody is talking about it judge, thank you very much. brian: i believe he sincerely wants that. >> i fully agree with you, brian. >> thanks, judge. >> you are welcome. brian: saw him on the stage with the president last night in florida. will it being enough to help ron desantis become the state's next governor?

turnout in 2016 for president trump. that's one of the reasons he kicked things off last night and he is going to be blitzing the country. ainsley: you think florida. you think republican. the president keeps going back to florida because some of the races there are so tight. you have rick scott and ron desantis that are running in that state as well as others. he is going back to florida, actually. he was there last night going back on saturday. look at the map. that's where he is going. 11 rallies like over a six day span. ainsley: where is he today? ainsley: today columbia, missouri close to your old stomping ground on friday is he going to west virginia, huntington. brian: manchin is suddenly vulnerable. what's interesting in montana that the libertarian has dropped out. and the conventional thought is when a libertarian drops out it's good for republicans. that hurts jon tester who is trying desperately to tell everybody he is a moderate democrat, which the only problem is we see his voting

steve: in indiana, the most popular politician in indiana is mike pence. ainsley: so the president, we talked about that axios interview that's going to be aired on hbo, right, this weekend. here is another clip of it, of the president defending why he calls the media the inform the people. >> what scares the crap out of he if you are saying enemy of the people, inform the people. think of it. god forbid that like somebody have you fervent supporters they love you and listen to you. enemy of the people. >> they like me more because of that. >> they like you more but what happens if all of a sudden someone gets shot. someone shoots one of these reporters? i don't think you think we are the enemy of the people, do you? >> i don't. if you gave me false reports i would say that's not a good thing for our country. >> don't you worry at all you? are like the most powerful man in the world. if you say that word, enemy, enemy, literally tens of thousands of people going to a stadium to listen to you and people going on social media and get themselves so jazzed up. >> only form of fighting
4:07 am
back. i couldn't be here if i did that. >> you won. you have the presidency. >> no, no. i did this before i won. steve: so there he is. he is saying essentially i may be president but that's how i fight back. clearly what he doesn't like is he does not like stories that he feels are not fair to what he is doing. so that is -- started out as fake news and then it eventually turned into enemy of the people. and jim, talking right there about what if somebody takes it, somebody is listening to that and they think okay that guy that i'm seeing at this rally is an enemy of the people what should i do about it. ainsley: how frustrating would it be if you are the president of the united states and every single time you turn on the tv on most of the channels they are misconstruing what you say. you know your later and you head words and voice and you watch what other people report on what you say and completely different than what you mean. that has to be frustrating. that's why he is calling it fake news. if you don't want to be called the enemy, get the story right and be accurate and report on the story on

4:09 am
not true, you know, he is branding it that's not true. brian: i want to bring this up too before we go to the sound bite. bernie sanders last night said the president is the most racist, xenophobic, anti gay, homophobic. what does that do? what did bernie sanders do last night to his supporters? why is bernie sanders not worried about people misinterpreting his words and his actions? because if he is describing the president accurately, which i assume he is because he only tells the truth. then maybe somebody is misinterpreting those words and thinks they have to do what some of those clowns did last week. steve: now you know, you just heard from the interview with jim have and vani the president uses the term. in people and fights back at the press. ainsley: we heard nancy pelosi say if you want civility we are not going to be civil until democrats win. nancy pelosi had a similar message. listen to this. >> there has been a lot of talk lately about lowering
4:10 am
the temperature of political discourse. have you seen evidence of that? >> well, i think when we win, you will see evidence of that. because when we do win, we will have, as we open a new congress we will honor the vows of oour founders e pluribus iewn numb. from many come one. it is also exciting to find solutions that unify and not divide. that's what makes a big difference between democrats and what's in the white house now. brian: i wonder when the last time nancy pelosi came out to unify? i don't know. steve: after they win on tuesday. brian: do we have enough brain room staff to look that up? when is the last time she went out. when she jammed obamacare down everyone's throat when president obama was ready to give up on it? that's what we are looking at. steve: she is obviously feeling very strongly about it same interview with stephen colbert where she was emphatic we are going to
4:11 am
win. we are going to win. we will union phi after we win. brian: i'm not saying that bernie sanders, anyone should listen to bernie sanders and take action or will. i'm saying if you are going to be tough on the president for his language and maybe it's justified. you have to be tough on everybody for their language. if you want the president to tone it down, future opponent looks to be bernie sanders has to tone it down as well. steve: bernie sanders ask not the president. ainsley: let us know what you think. brian: he wants to be. steve: he does. ainsley: let us know what you think about that interview and president calling the press the enemy of the people. hand it over to jillian who has headlines. jillian: that's right. good thursday morning. start with this story. the man accused of killing 11 innocent people inside a pittsburgh synagogue is due back in court today. robert bowers has now been indicted on 44 federal charges, including hate crimes and murder. prosecutors are seeking the death penalty. funerals for more than half of the victims have been held with more services planned for today. an x con thinks whitey bulger's death may have been

4:18 am
from miami. congressman, good morning to you. >> good morning. steve: we cited the statistic earlier. so far in florida 3.5 million have already early voted or absentee voted. you say that the republican early vote is, what, 2 points ahead of the democrats? >> yeah, that's right. normally, democrats would be ahead of us at this point. we usually have a big election day turnout. i think we are succeeding in mobilizing folks. i think the president coming to florida is helping that we feel really good about what's going on. part of it is i think floridians understand that there is a real significant choice here for the direction of our state. i'm going to build off the success we have h our economy is going well. we need to continue that and expand upon it. andrew gillum the guy i'm running against wants that 40% tax increase which will cost jobs. cause businesses to leave florida and appreciate what could be a historic flow of investment into florida over the next several years. so the stakes are high. steve: let's take a look at the real clear politics average right now. he your opponent is at
4:19 am
almost 47%. and you are almost at 44% pretty darn tight. last night you talked a little bit about how appear drew gillum is running on impeaching the president. what else did you say? >> i just joked he should be impeached he got caught taking gifts from fbi agent over 1,000ness new york city. $4,300 for a fund raising dinner which was never disclosed. and then you had the lobbyists that arranged both of those gave andrew $1,000 four-night stay in a luxury costa rica villa. and of course andrew turned around and gave that same lobbyists a 2-million-dollar contract with the city of tallahassee. so that is corruption in action at the municipal level and it is wrong. steve: one of the things that the people of florida on both coasts are concerned about the red tide and green algae. if you were governor, how
4:20 am
would you fix that? >> >> good appointments to the water management districts. good quality water standards. working with the trump administration to finish these projects, particularly this reservoir south of lake okeechobee. you send the water there, clean it, and then you don't have to discharge it here's the thing, steve, andrew wants to impeach trump. how the hell is he going to work with the trump administration constructively to advance florida's priorities. i will get the job done with the water. andrew will not. steve: ron desantis joining us today from miami. i know sprint to the finish. sir, thank you very much for joining us live. >> thank you. steve: by the way, we did reach out to mr. gillum to invite him on the program. they have not called us back. invitation is still open. meanwhile, president trump says railing dependence his opponents helped him win. >> the only form of fighting back, i couldn't be here if i did that. steve: is he right? a debate on that coming up next. if you want a car from a company that's

4:26 am
is saying that that he has to defend himself? >> i think when he is acting like candidate trump and not president trump. it's great when he goes to 20 rallies and 20,000 people. do the math, that's 400,000 people. he is the president of 350 million. so i think at least half, if not more, don't like him calling u.s. citizens the enemy of the people. the enemy of the people who are you military are fighting against or the terrorists that we saw this past weekend. the pipe bomber, or obviously the shooter in pittsburgh. so, i don't view the media as our enemy. they are not perfect but they are not our enemy. ainsley: kim, what do you think? >> i think robert is proving a great point there. when you talk about serial bombers, when you talk about mass shootings or anything negative in the country, the left wing media puts that spin on it and use president trump's name. when you talk about a booming economy and talk about wages increasing or women going into leadership roles in corporations then somehow people bring up president obama. this is what has been happening for a very long time. president trump is right. he speaks the language of

the general population. there's a reason why his rallies are packed and there is lines around the buildings. there is a reason people actually like what he says and they believe him in what he says. it's not a game. it's not a charade. it's president trump, it's transparency. ainsley: robert, as a reporter and someone who has interviewed the president. when you sit down with him, you can ask him any question and he is going to shoot straight with you. is he going to be very forth right. he was honest with that reporter saying i have no other way to defend myself. what else is he supposed to do if he doesn't use twitter in order to negate some of the stories that other networks are reporting that he doesn't agree with? >> yeah. i think we are talking two different things. i'm not questioning whether the president should defend himself and put what he deems to be the right facts on twitter. although i will challenge whether they are the right facts or not. i think we are talking about is that rhetoric he is using and the far left or far right. that's best for the country. these chants at the rallies what we want. the answer is no. it is not bringing our country together. it's separating us.
4:28 am
i'm not on the fringe left. and i'm certainly not on the fringe right. but we are losing the center. and i think this nationalistic type of rhetoric is not positive. i had breakfast recently with steve bannon and he said this is a referendum on trump. and he is not surprised that the president is talking about this illegal immigration and caravan and birthright citizenship and the truth is, republicans should be talking about the economy and they are not. ainsley: kim, i want to talk to you about that. remember james carville. the phrase it's the economy, stupid. look at the number and paychecks. amazon just read the story where they are paying their workers now 15 hours. when you look at the economy and 401(k), since he has been president, everything looks better. so, how is it -- what are democrats missing? >> well, democrats are missing a lot. but we don't have that kind of time to go into it. in a way, if you look at it,
4:29 am
the labor department already said we have the largest increase in i would say, probably 8 years. since 2008. you saw -- i'm sorry, since 2008, you didn't see this kind of increase. september of 2017 to september 2018, we saw 2.9% in wages. people remember that now when to vote, you think about the money in your pocket. you think about the economy. i don't think we really even have to talk about it. i mean, actions speak louder than words. if you are going home and your paycheck is larger, that's what you have. ainsley: robert, what's your response to that why do democrats take a step back they might not agree with the rhetoric and tweets. if you look at your pocketbook and our economy and country, why aren't more democrats supporting him? >> well a few things. one, i think everyone should be a pro-growth democrat or pro-growth republican and the economy doing well is a good thing. the democrats right now are looking to win the house and they are focusing on local elections and they are focusing on healthcare, protecting women's rights, protecting pre-existing conditions. with respect to the economy,
4:30 am
we should just say the facts. for the last 20 months of president obama, we averaged 211,000 jobs. and for the first 20 months of president trump we averaged 188,000 jobs. those are both good but 211 is greater than 188. we have had 40 great months. those are all positive things. i'm not saying we should run away from the economy. we should talk about the vibrant economy. that being said you have the president talking about caravan and birth right and immigration. you have the democrats talking about healthcare and protecting women's rights. and right now we used to talk about foreign policy andee culsed to talk about and k about the economy and right now neither side is talking about that. ainsley: thank you both. have a great day. >> you too. >> thank you. ainsley: beto o'rourke said he would never pay for consultants on his campaign. it turns out that's not exactly what ended up happening. pete hegseth having breakfast with friends down in florida after president trump's rally last night. we will check with him. look at that, a man with

more winning for the trump economy. american workers now seeing more money in their paychecks as wages are growing in the fastest pace in at least a decade. steve: stuart varney says you can thank capitalism and the president for that some of the metrics regarding the economy have not included wages in the last year or. so but suddenly we are realizing wages are going up more now than they have in a decade. >> exactly. this is the way capitalism is supposed to work. and it is working. you cut taxes, you grow the economy. and employers have to struggle to keep and attract new workers. so what do they do? they put wages up. steve: look at amazon. >> 3% gain over the summer. best gain in 10 years. you couple that with an 18-year high in consumer confidence and 7 million unfilled job openings, and i think you are looking towards an extremely good holiday selling season. probably the most prosperous holiday season in at least a decade. that's what you are looking
4:48 am
forward to here. i think president trump should take a bow. i mean, he could say i told you. he did. and look what we have got. ainsley: all of this just because of cutting taxes. >> cutting taxes. deregulation. pro-business. opening up america's engine of growth, which is a capitalist economy. he did that. he is running the country like he is running a business. and it's working. he really should take a bow on this. steve: can you explain to me why, given that unbelievably great news, not many republicans are actually running on that up toward the midterms? >> i can't explain it. because surely the economy, and prosperity is the key issue that you run on in any election. you punch it up there. we are prosperous. we are growing, we are dynamic, we have jobs and prosperity. isn't that what you make your primary reason voting for me, voting for republicans? brian: i have a theory to answer steve's question because stuart fell short. you ready? >> go right ahead. brian: you don't need an ad to tell you that things are
4:49 am
better. you don't need to see it on television. you see it at home. if they told you things are better and it's not in your wallet, not on your kitchen table, not in your driveway, i don't care how good the ad is. >> fair point. therefore, republican candidates should turn around and say we did it. steve: right. >> we created this prosperity. brian: you are welcome. >> you are welcome and punch it up more forcefully. again, the president should be taking a bow and i think he is by the way. if you look at those rallies the man is taking a bow for the economic performance. the democrats what are they doing? all they have got is hate trump. brian: healthcare. >> i think there is a real shift in the polls. you see those new fox news polls? there is a shift. going towards the president. going towards the g.o.p. i don't think there is going to be a blue wave. i think the g.o.p. has a strong chance of keeping the house and increasing its majority in the senate because the economy, prosperity. wages and jobs. brian: we would know that because the market would like that. you believe the market would reflect positively if the
4:50 am
president held the house and the senate? >> yes, i think it would. it would. because you will get more tax cuts, more deregulation and a greater attention to growing the economy. steve: okay. ainsley: stuart, lot of people want to be you. there is a little baby that dressed up as you for halloween. brian: stuart varney, look at that. >> isn't that nice? so flattering. steve: his mom chelsea sent that to us dressed up at stuart varney. >> see the caption there what say you? i often say that. ainsley: look have a set for the baby. has your name in the back. steve: you have more hair. brian: i have a prediction that will be the number one costume next year. the way your career is going straight up. >> i will take it thank you all. steve: thank you, stuart. ainsley: listen to this. angry, bigot, sexist. a mom shocked to find those words linked to you republicans on her son's

travel. documents show this in his latest finance release, using city funds, private round trips on a developer's plane to meet with campaign donors, contradicting his account on previous flights. emails released earlier this week all part of a state ethics probe. gillum had great momentum coming out of primary, more you look at his record, you realize what he has moving forward. if he didn't have great charisma and presence, someone with this type of background would have fallen flat on his face by now. steve: mr. gillum denied the charges obviously. if you look at battleground states whoever is currently a senator, is hanging in the balance, you can see that the president's approval rating, those are the numbers below the states are all above 50%. in north dakota, he is at 61. tennessee, almost 60. missouri, about 55. arizona and indiana, closer to 50 but nonetheless it will help candidates running for senate in
5:06 am
those states. ainsley: democratic candidates are trying to be more moderate now and saying they're not so far left because they're in these states that the president did really well. is doing well. steve: one of the things the president said last night in florida about rick scott who is battling senator bill nelson, he praised him for his response to hurricane michael. he praised him for getting money to build a reservoir south of lake okeechobee to reduce discharges on the east and west coast. down in florida, the environment is of special interest. people hate the red tide and green ally. brian: just amazing the mayor of tallahassee will run, he basically said i cannot wait to bet there to raise taxes. i want medicare for all. this is, just, it is, for ron desantis, he wants to get on message but he also wants to point out how different the state will look if he loses. ainsley: president said
5:07 am
republicans don't want crime or chaos or caravans. he says democrats want open borders f we continue push that, open borders, one caravan after another will come in. i talked about the economy if you're better off now than you were two years ago, vote republican. listen to this. >> tax cuts and other things we have within the reform bill. the end result we have an economy that is the hottest economy right now in the world. i guess the stock market is up to getting close to 50%, if you think about it, that is incredible since the election. waiting for the results of the midterms. if the midterms for some reason don't do so well for republicans i think you all will lose a lot of money. i hate to say that, i think you will lose a lot of money. people are waiting on their 401(k)s and they're waiting to see what happens with the midterms. if it comes out good i think market will continue to go through a period like we've never seen before. steve: one of the other things the president said last night at
5:08 am
the ral if andrew gillum becomes a governor, he would take florida's red hot economy and turn it into a venezuela-like recession. brian: a lot of his programs are socialist oriented. the reason the market backed up yesterday, they think there is a sense among investors that republicans might hold on to the house and senate. that is what stuart is saying. here is what he said about wages, and where it is heading. >> surely the economy, and prosperity is the key issue you run on in any election. punch it up there. we're prosperous, we're growing, we're dynamic, we've got jobs, we've got prosperity. i think president trump should take a bow. he did that. he is running the company like he is running a business and it is working. steve: what are the big issues going to you in the midterms? email us at or tweet us. ainsley: i thought republicans

5:16 am
up, the ad, what the president's words are not that unreasonable. i think the ad though is definitely designed -- steve: what ad? >> the ad where they show hoards, president re-election, hoards of migrants rushing the fence in guatemala, basically this is what the democrats want. brian: those were not actors. >> i appreciate that. i appreciate that. i think this is an issue that really demands, i am hopeful the day after the election these two parties get together, finally to resolve this fraught issue that has divided the american people, is given disproportionate attention in my view. i don't think the troops will do any good down there. i think it's a lot my coverage of the haitian earthquake, the troops come in, you build a tent city to support the troops. you have to feed the troops. sanitation for the troops. so much effort, tens of millions of dollars goes into the logistic effort, when do they do when they get there?

5:18 am
unarmed civilians and u.s. military troops on the border? brian: send a message. same message come here. america is serious. >> how about this for the message? the message, come here, by you hearing, sent home unless this, this, spell out in concrete terms exactly what it takes to qualify for asylum. steve: that would require more assets from congress. maybe the new congress will do something like that. we want to talk about your murder if in the family series. completely unrelated. >> totally unrelated for the reels channel. look it up in your directory. i'm going back to the some of the roots. i love crime reporting, true crime reporting. this adds to that, to the emotional collision that people experience when they get involved in a violent crime. on top of that, you have the celebrity factor. all of these cases have somebody very famous who is central either as the victim or the perpetrator. in the first episode, jennifer hudson whose sister and mom and
5:19 am
nephew were slain by the, this aberrant sicko, her brother-in-law. you talk about how the people with grace and dignity managed to survive the crime that we are forsenically examining, very meticulously reporting. nothing sensational about. this is, remember jack webb in "dragnet," just the facts. very proud of it. there are six episodes. the first one is saturday 9:00 on reels. can i just say, one last thing -- if i could talk to the president, i hope i get a chance to see him in cleveland on monday night. i would say now the election is tomorrow, tuesday, mr. president. on wednesday, reach out to schumer and say, put up or shut up. you want the wall, all right, elections have consequences, you get the wall but give me amnesty for the dreamers. give me some path to citizenship. steve: they were close before. >> they were so close to that deal. forget all the rest. forget the noise. i think the wall, you want to
5:20 am
send a message. a wall sends a message, don't come. also buy public service announcements in latin american tv and radio stations that counters the message all they have to do is show up they have a path to the american dream. be aggressive bit in a smart way. rather than having cameras focus on trooper from the 101st airborne facing off with a mom and her baby, which would be awful optic. smacks of racism. brian: won't come to that. border patrol in front. >> whatever it is, brian, have a measured approach. let's solve the problem, i've been arguing, how many times i almost come to blows during o'reilly's day. brian: you almost hit him. steve: thank you very much. we'll watch you at reels. see you next time. ainsley: senate showdown in texas, five days away. senator ted cruz facing off against democrat beto o'roark in a hotly-contested race.

through december 15th. as president trump make as promise on twitter, republicans will protect people with preexisting conditions far better than the dems, close quote. ainsley: everything is bigger in texas, including the stakes for this year's senate race. the latest "real clear politics" average showing ted cruz ahead of progressive candidate beto o'rourke by seven points. steve: dana loesch joins us from texas to comment on it. dana, a lot of people are surprised it has been as close as it has been. right now, cruz has opened up a lead of over five or six points, nonetheless, why so close? >> that's a great question and good morning to everyone. it is a lot bigger here in texas and this race is super expensive and it is a lot closer than people like me are comfortable with to be quite honest, however i also remember back when wendy davis was running. we have to wait and see whether beto o'rourke, is the male
5:26 am
version of wendy davis. progressives are good at marketing and new tactic making themselves seem more bigger and successful than they are, they did that with the davis race. they were unsuccessful, turnout for democrats and enthusiasm ultimately waned. i don't know whether that will happen with o'rourke. some polls say there is 10 point lead, seven point lead. a ut-tyler poll came out the other day showed a three point lead between cruz and o'rourke. where the texas suburbs will go and where rural east texas is going to go as well. ainsley: why is that? you think of the state of texas, bush family is conservative. ted cruz is so smart. he ran for president. he has so much experience. you have o'rourke who is surrounded by controversy with the car accident and so progressive, so what we don't think texas is like. we think texas of conservatives and cowboys. why is it so close?
5:27 am
hard for the rest of the country to understand that? >> i think, ainsley, you hit on some incredibly important topics, beto o'rourke, this guy talks about banning certain automatic firearms like the ar-15. who denied leaving the scene of the crime. at one of the last debates he was fact checked some in mainstream media. this guy is incredibly friendly on energy which is important in state like texas. voters, immigration, and energy and jobs are top priorities for texas voters. however, one of the things, like we've seen in nevada, we've seen in some other states, a lot of calfornians moved to texas, because texas has been very successful luring a lot of businesses because of the no-state income tax, friendly business climate. with those businesses that come to texas, you have some of those employees that come with them. in fact it has changed so much in texas, that my friends in real estate, they have said the market has changed. in fact when people in texas put
5:28 am
their homes on the market, they have to cater to what they call the california buyer. that is one of the things playing in here. brian: austin used to be like that. it is spreading. being attractive with low-taxed states. democrats hike taxes, they're ones leaving for low taxes. same thing in florida, to a degree and tennessee, nashville specifically. >> yeah. this is one of the things that beto o'rourke said he is on board for. would completely rubberstamp, if nancy pelosi and democrats heaven forbid regain the house. i'm not fear-mongering, they said they would raise taxes. they would be also involved in rolling back tax cuts on businesses. we would see a lot of those gains, we would lose those. we would see a lot of economic growth. we would lose that. we would see petty politics emerge, the agenda they said, o'rourke said he supports is not
5:29 am
an agenda that voters support in 2016. this is not an agenda they have gone for. this will come down on enthusiasm, turnout. this is not a midterm to sit out. steve: we'll know how many people do sit out and how many people vote next wednesday morning. dana loesch in texas. thanks very much. ainsley: hegseth is having "breakfast with friends." is down in another state, florida, where they don't have state income tax. >> there is no state income tax right now. if a socialist takes over they might have one. that motivate as lot of voters going to the polls. i'm talking with tommy, enrique. we're sick of pundits. we're sick of manhattan. we want to know what people really think. election is five days away. we'll bring it to you on the other side. i will have this. ♪

5:55 am
suddenly they changed direction. they are going towards a town called matea romero. to vera cruz ultimately to mcallen, texas. we talked to a guy that didn't know where he was going. are you going towards mcallen, texas, instead of tijuana? have they told you? >> i don't know. we go to tijuana but i'm not sure. reporter: so the other major change, no buses. for the last two days they have been trying to get buts from the state or federal government, maybe the political parties. not the case. that of course is a major win for president trump, who has been pressuring mexico all along to stop, to deter these guys, so they wouldn't be able to cross the border legally or illegally. let me give you numbers. i think the caravan shrunk from 7,000 to 4,000. those are official figures. 382 have decided to go home.
5:56 am
2800 have sought shelter here in mexico. of which among those, 2200 have formally requested asylum. one of the reasons they moved with relative ease, right through mexico, that is encouraged or inspired other caravans as you know, you guys, are roughly, three other caravans. of the one in tapchula where we 10 days ago. one south of the river still in guatemala. a third going from el salvador, now in guatemala as well. i would tell you this, mcallen, texas, is halfway, half the distance going all the way to tijuan. i don't know if the decision is made they're going to mexico city. more people trying to go through texas than california. easiers. not as much infrastructure. easier to turn yourself is in especially in the president shuts down the ports of entry. brian: william, thanks very much. stay safe. more "fox & friends" in just a
