Q are you surprised that this race is as close as it is hot rental of the they're not on. Confident we're gonna pull it out. It out of here but to slim margin New Orleans. But still so we'll former Republican congressman Tom Franks won back in November by over. Twenty points but the fact that it tight back and think about your home town. Now we're changing and I think getting a little. No. Carol I've campaigned for her over the years for a variety of positions. So I know overwhelms you like this don't conservative Republicans also offers everything we don't need. Putting an adaptation of puppet for publicity. And he's just pretending to be. Moderate right now could. It is not only. Democrat but also the Republican. I don't think he has anybody who. There was vocal Republican chair. In the district over just next door yesterday that sent that he office shooting last week. In Alexandria Virginia where congressman who is shocked but could help parent and to win. I was eating sort of said the victim. I think the Austin. Did you think that that's sort of talk is it appropriate adding is it true that packet the packet and really impact politics I'm here. So blunt everything they one go to war politics and pay their not long time ago that statistic. Aspects of politics one has to get elected the other is to serve and the two don't have all the luck due to. So you do what you gotta do to get elected and we switch here Hugo and the office and you'd you'd be the best politician that candidate to represent your district. That's mine. Do whatever it takes you know and Clark do whatever it takes intellect and look what injuries. There was there's a super pac ads that got some blowback to that talks showed footage of the shooting and talked about Democrats and that they weren't somehow. Complicit if they had sort of helped by allotment extreme last you think that's true. Well just look around the country it. I'm curious single continent of college campuses this a liberals that are starting the protest in the riots and ruined property in the injuring people. You don't see many conservatives doing. Hundreds and and a city job. OK so what does it look like for you ready candidate who aren't going around and. Endorse a phone call it IRA well.

Asked that question are the media this I don't know I'm definitely running in the cannot read and not. They represent them in that made not a referendum. Yeah level yeah. That is really interesting there issue and Aaron Carter in this race to be a referendum on president feet. And she was very emphatic saying no to that is something that can. Media covering but it has raised about the sixth district any like last night about earlier that's exactly the same thing you're hearing from the Democrats. They're back some other you know. More progressive within in his district that CNN Democrats should be talking about Donald Trump they shouldn't make this race war. More. The lately about the White House and and and and the uproar in DC and instead easy candidates are trying very hard to keep the issue of local. And they believe that that hasn't happened to victory not on either side. Yeah. Yeah. Let me tell me tell me your name.

The pros and that's from. It's ridiculous and it's likely he night. Not that name. Carlson to those like yeah. And then hops and we're good luck. Brag thing. Murder alone. It's like an arms race in some way the Democrats and that is how much. How much yeah. Okay. The Republican says he needs ratings so much my name and yet Hartmann. We're we have on the hard ground who can. Okay. Coach an appearance into the whole lot differently. Build a bullet. Burned. This quarter so the captured. I thought about that she can't have a lot of good name recognition here people have known her for a long time and she's really agonizing to watch TV. In I don't know her last night I was surprised at how hot and Avant. On TV again Diana and her opponent can't imagine handing mention Nancy Pelosi and progress as it happened.
