This is a very hotly contested race.
What is gonna decide this race now is the ground game and I've got as many statistics as the chairman of the Republican Party.
As you do -- early voting on voter registration -- All kinds of I was just some Florida.
Then I saw in that campaign offices of Barack Obama.
A new coalition I remember for years ago was mainly young people out trying to change the country this times it was senior citizens it was veterans.
I am gonna predict that we will narrowly win Florida and I think it's going to be the Hispanic states near me.
You -- -- back Colorado Nevada.
I think we all think the Florida about how much -- You don't take me let me ask you one last question.
Do you think -- Reagan said in 1980.
Do you think with twenty fewer Americans working when he took office one in six and poverty.
Seventeen million more Americans on food stamps and six trillion in debt.
Are you gonna say we're better off than we were four years ago governor.
Yes we're better off we're better off because -- president is standing for middle class security.
And he's created five point five private sector jobs after a monthly 800000.
Erosion of jobs per month.
All right governor.
I think we're far worse off but I I I don't think -- use the rhetoric revenge voting I don't think EU would say Republicans want dirty air and water.
But I appreciate you they -- us and I know you're a loyal supporter of the president -- would be -- Thank you.
