And we're expecting several hundred people showing up listener support the crowd but also sort of the political class the political country will be their and that is where we will see if there and he swings of the needle in the days and leading up to the big debates I want to check in with another. Volunteer here now so what's your name. I'm Jill Lansing and so were you doing here. Crying kind. Volunteers that I am personally. We're with people who. See you personally call these people before that they they know you'll Alia and so and I content from my home I'll. So it's kind of funny because they. I don't know crisis on a blocked call 800. That number is calling yourself hat. Antonia. I'd be. These are. We'll work written in the past. Migrating. To get him wrong so yeah I think it's so important. Yeah. Yeah yeah strong showing here. So I know working on his. Sold all my friends out here after asks them. January. I was gonna say it's an interesting time to have a debate on the Republicans have actually had to based on week nights when it's easy to find we've seen record ratings for a lot of these Republican debates. This debate coming up on ABC on Saturday though it's on a night when there's going to be NFL football. It's going to be very close to Christmas to look at get shopping and why should they actually tune in and pay attention. Hey can TV aren't I yeah. Diego let me ask you another question so how do you keep all these people's phone numbers on your own anyhow. Described how that data program that's in place here that lets you know who disposed Oliver. Well these are people that I'd. That means personal friendship Simon comedy that's fine well minute campaign. Do you get to meet like minded people -- that live in the same kind of. And eventually becoming friends that I've been friends if people over the years where friends. As well as they'll come and help us out on a campaign. So I would never give their personal phone numbers they know. You anyone's help anyone that I'm calling. Campaign doesn't have their own embassy I'm calling him personally I see housing so I mean campaign has anyone's fault America that's public. The crisis cell phone number yeah or are they asking not to share with him and company. Sure but his campaign does it do a good job. Getting a lot of info out about who they think that he's pathetic actually calling get a good and that's usually you know I. Tonight I'm Mike. Now everyone else I start work on another. And we cited an announcement he's. So that we all do we can do this and you know and we met me now currently. Well I think you need ago win needless. And what that's doing Hamlet two and other Hillary Clinton events. Yeah yeah. Now he's just an Earl wild life and winning well. So you're sort of a longtime democratic I'll. Yes yes I have don't think I have every well than. It's there you go you CN some pleas for more people to come and join a fight and what's interesting and New Hampshire is because you have volunteers. In Texas are in a state where you know you. Don't have your primary as soon. Lot of those volunteers actually want to get involved earlier as you see people come from out of state from other non swing states to come and devote their time here. In fact I'm Leon. On the wall here they actually helped. An entire. Entirely lawful fellows and some of these are volunteers that have come from far and wide trying to get involved in the campaign in a way that they might not able to in their own state. They could they how to surf with volunteers in the area. And so this is one of sort of many ways. In which they bring people to say when I talk to another volunteer for able to right now what's your name an inventory and Torre held the UIE. Sixteen years old to get the teenage contingent out here in. Nashua, New Hampshire would he do anything. I am not thinking I'm calling people that volunteer Marcie Jonathan Martin's atlas.

Sends them only sixteen and I can't vote I want to make everything and that person I hottest front and and that. Secretary Clinton is in office when it comes honey sixteen in.

And in fact it just the other day at a marker rubio event I found classes of college students who were taking a semester off basically sort of a mini term. And going to New Hampshire is sort of a study abroad trip. Two learn a little bit more about the New Hampshire primary some of them are volunteering with campaigns are really getting. That authentic New Hampshire grounds I view of the campaign again at. One of the places where you can only experience like that.

Our database. He's identified himself as a Democrat but it was willing to discuss politics Pakistan. And an equal amount. God and still exists in the sort of thing happens all the time disappear behind misuse us or give me an idea. Of those things are gonna talking. Wang. Canvassers whoever that we endured during the day to knock on doors. They have a list of names and different addresses so this is 88 representative fictitious shoot. So are we given away people's personal information here at this JC is real is this Jesus realize because this is fictitious ala. However with a real person you got your name address them with information about abstinence and you're prepared when you knock in the D'auria an idea it would spend.

At soldier I mean what works soldier in the army and then. Next to what you get somebody on the phone home. They're trying to get this is accused of everything looks on the other. Things are trying to get out of them before you camp song well there are amenable to them and helping out Hillary campaign we have a series of questions. We wouldn't like to volunteered. Pan.
