4:00 am
during the ninth inning of their loss to the giants. that left a serious mark. now victor, abby, i, too, have my cardboard cutout. i'm a huge fan. as you see, i ran out of ink. i need more printer ink. >> you need more ink. >> thank you, coy. >> as we watch cases and deaths spike nationwide, we're seeing a massive push to get kids back in the classroom. >> when you talk about forcing teachers to come back to school, you better be careful about that. >> many days of good-byes for former civil rights icon and congressman john lewis. >> thank you merciful master for the boy from troy, who was the
4:01 am
conscience of -- >> hurricane hanna made landfall with a category 1 storm on padre island, texas, with sustained winds of 90 miles per hour. >> next one is coming in. doesn't end up like this one. top of the hour now. sunday, july 26th. gor good morning to you. i'm victor blackwell. i'm abby philip in for christi paul. thank you for being with us. the total number of confirmed cases surpass 16 million. the u.s. added more than 65,000 new cases yesterday. >> in florida, the epicenter of the u.s. now has the second highest number of cases in the entire country, passing new york yesterday. and coming just behind
4:02 am
california. americans and also -- are waiting if more economic relief is coming. mitch mcconnell is hoping to get a new relief bill to the house in the next two to three weeks. the federal unemployment benefits expired this week. north korea is reporting its first suspected case of covid-19. state media is reporting that kim jong-un convened an emergency meeting and the patient and the people in recent contacts are now quarantined. we'll start with polo sandoval with a look at the u.s. polo, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning. it seems that health experts are noticing these grim patterns almost on a daily basis here, victor and abby. when you look at the last four days or so, u.s. covid-related deaths topping 1,000 since -- the projections out suggesting we could see another 175,000
4:03 am
people die due to the virus by mid-august. >> florida on saturday became the u.s. state with the second highest official coronavirus case count, passing new york, once the epicenter early on in the pandemic. the number of people being hospitalized in florida up a staggering 79% since the july 4th holiday. nearly half of no. florida's covid-19 deaths are linked to long-term care facilities. at least 50 florida hospitals saturday reporting they reached icu capacity. >> every day in miami-dade county, about 200 people go in the hospitals because they're too sick. 20 to 30 will likely die. a good portion will end up two weeks on -- in icu and another portion on ventilators and survive. >> despite that and surging case numbers, there's a push to reopen bars in florida. we're learning heartbreaking details about the youngest
4:04 am
victim. she was just 9 years old when she died last week. while florida tops new york in cases, texas sits behind new york with 380,000 cases of the coronavirus. texas saturday afternoon reported more than 8100 new cases and 168 deaths. >> we have reported 386 people who have died in the city. not the county, but in the city of houston. 151 of those deaths came just in the month of july. we have had more people to die in july than march, april, may, june combined. >> leading the nation now in confirmed cases of covid-19, california. and friday, 159 people died of the coronavirus in california. but most deaths there in a single day. arizona hit the highest daily death toll on saturday. thousands not only in that state face a cutoff of unemployment
4:05 am
benefits as congress fights over the details of a relief bill that could cause pain for many people in arizona and other states. >> we're all about making sure that the working class of this country are taken care of. we're not going to stick to strict ideology and in the process somehow destroy family incomes and family stability. so so, of course, we'll look at compromises. >> as cases spike, a push to get the kids back into the classroom this fall. the cdc has new guidelines coming down hard in favor of reopening schools. with the new school year just around the corner, families and communities are weighing whether to send their children back for in-person learning. >> for parents, it's really important to prepare, to know where your kid is going to go every day. if we have to dial back on that like in the spring, this could be really, really devastating for parents. we want to forecast what the best possible knowledge what the future is going to look like,
4:06 am
rather than what a political priorities are for what they want them to look like. >> all this as new cdc analysis show symptoms can stick around for weeks, even those who are otherwise healthy. >> this morning, there are mayors across the country taking a good hard look at their policies right now and considering a second stay-at-home order, like los angeles and houston. here's the frustrating part, abby and victor. there are many municipalities where the state government may not allow them to enforce the stay-at-home orders. texas is a prime example. just heard from a mayor who said they lost more people in march, april and may -- rather, more people in july than those three months combined. >> polo sandoval in new york. thank you so much. >> let's bring in dr. abdul he will syed to talk about this. we heard from him in the report. he's the epidemiologist and public health expert. let's start where you stopped in
4:07 am
that report, on schools. right now the cdc has put out those guidelines for schools. they're focused -- their focus seems on the psychological impact on children. i'm wondering about basic public health practices, testing, contact tracing. did you see a real plan within the guidelines to help schools figure out how they can manage to contain outbreaks if they occur within their schools once they reopen? >> there's some really good public health recommendations, both around mitigating transmission and what to do if it really happens. we're not doing a good job of testing and contact tracing outside of school. to think that somehow when we still have limitations across almost every state in the united states and we're still limited in testing capacity that somehow schools will figure out how to do this when the cdc and health
4:08 am
department have not is more wishful than realistic. secondarily, the psychological consequences are real. it's true, kids need to be in school. it helps them cognitively and socially and emotionally. what would happen if we didn't do this right. we didn't bring down transmission in the communities that surround schools and then we had to pull the kids back out of school for the second year in a row. think about the psychological consequences of that. we have to have a realistic picture as we walk into this. there's a lot more about what's happening outside of schools than inside of schools. the psychological consequences aren't limited to the benefits of schools. they include what might happen if we have to pull them out. >> i mean, so much of the country, what's happening outside of schools is this dual reality. you've got places in the southern part of the u.s. dealing with rising cases and then you've got places like new york where they have been able to put a hold on this virus.
4:09 am
but they're struggling to keep it that way. over the weekend, they said they're seeing more -- they're stepping up in bars and congregate places. this is coming up everywhere. do you feel we're at a point now where it's not safe to have those kinds of settings open really anywhere in the country if we want to keep this virus in check? >> well, the science tells us that this virus makes a field day of spreading in enclosed tight spaces where there are a lot of people and there's not good ventilation. bars need that. so we have to ask the question, do we want bars more or -- more. i understand there's a large part of the economy that's driven by this. be honest. bars aren't the most necessary part of our society. when we're making decision ifs whether to send our kids to school and what patterns after
4:10 am
that, who warrants are kiddo owe helping them to get on to zoom school every day, these are questions, tradeoffs that we have to decide we're going to have to make. folks like to go out and have the freedom of going to the bar and socialize. but as a society, we recognize that we being borne down on by a virus that's been bearing down for almost six months now. we have to decide what we want more. my argument is that we have to ask, are bars necessary? if they are necessary, then we should make an argument to keep them open. it's hard to fathom when we're asking whether or not to send our schools in the fall. in florida, in that state, a state owe kigs said they'll be -- for how to reopen. in that state, in miami-dade county, they're seeing a 12% increase in covid hospitalizations. they're seeing a 62% increase in
4:11 am
patients on ventilators. we only have a few seconds left. doctor, is that responsible for the state of florida right now? >> i understand that florida's economy is largely driven by tourism and bars are a big part of that. right now we have to put the most important things first. this is probably not one of the most important things. that people are getting sick and dying because of that. >> dr. abdul el sayey. thank you for being with us. senate republicans could unveil their plans for the next stimulus package next week. >> t it was supposed to happen last week. but they couldn't agree on a plan. sarah westwood is over at the white house for us. sarah, what are you hearing about how close republicans really are to an agreement on all of this? >> well, abby and victor, the
4:12 am
white house and senate republicans have been saying for a few days, they have a fundamental agreement. they're going over some of the fine print before the language of the bill. there are still holdups. one of the biggest -- enhanced unemployment benefits. the $600. they've been getting correct i am -- it doesn't officially expire until the 31st. it's been a point of discussion between white house oofficials. they want to move closer to a wage replacement system. up to 70% of a person's lost wages. listen to treasury secretary steve mnuchin on the hill yesterday. >> we're not going to use taxpayer money to pay people more to stay home. we're going to transition to a
4:13 am
ui system. we're talking about 70% wage replacement and we're going through the mechanics of that. >> senate republicans had initially hoped to get out -- it could come on monday. mitch machine konl wants to keep to a -- they want that passed through the senate through the house two to three weeks from now. that's a pretty heavy lift. this is just the opening offer. democrats and republicans are still far apart on what the stimulus will look like. democrats want in the neighborhood of 3 -- republicans are looking close closer to $3 trillion. democrats be democrats want to extend it into 2021. republicans are talking about scaling it back. a lot of work still to be done before congress gets the relief to the american people. weeks of work ahead.
4:14 am
when senate republicans and the white house have differences even just among themselves. abby and victor. sarah westwood, thanks so much at the white house for us. several cities across the country saw more violent protests overnight. >> at least 45 people in seattle after police say protesters threw rocks and bottles and fireworks at officers. others set fire to a portable trailer at a construction site and in portland, groups like the wall of mom and the wall of veterans provided a barrier between protesters and federal agents. >> property damage in oakland, california. police say protesters knocked over barricades, threw objects at police as well. the last door at police headquarters was shattered in the demonstration. now to austin, texas. one person was killed during protests there. police say the victim may have been carrying a rifle and approached a suspect vehicle. the suspect was in the vehicle,
4:15 am
shot the victim. the investigators say that the suspect is cooperating with the investigation. and on the passing of congressman -- tributes are pouring in for another death of a true legend. the famed talk show and game host regis philbin who died a month shy of his 89th birthday. he hosted numerous tv shows, including live with regis and kathie lee with kathie lee gifford and later it was live with regis and kelly. he was nominated for daytime emmy awards and won six. >> he certainly will be missed. let's turn to hurricane hanna. hitting parts of texas. where it's headed next. we'll talk about that. another hurricane could make landfall in the west very soon. we'll tell you where. today, congressman john
4:16 am
lewis will retrace the route from selma to montgomery. a fight he never abandoned. >> i truly believe that the young people and women will get us there. we're not quite there yet. they will have some setbacks and difficulties. but you cannot give up. you cannot give in. you will make it. they will lead us. how does the world reopen for business? to return to the workplace, safely, companies will need the right tools. that's why salesforce created it's an all-new suite of apps, expertise, and services. to manage this crisis today, and thrive tomorrow. everything companies need to return to the workplace. let's reopen. safely.
4:17 am
4:18 am
i have the power to lower my blood sugar and a1c. because i can still make my own insulin. and trulicity activates my body to release it like it's supposed to. once-weekly trulicity is for type 2 diabetes. it's not insulin. it starts acting from the first dose. and it lowers risk of heart attack, stroke, or death in people with known heart disease or multiple risk factors. trulicity isn't for people with type 1 diabetes or diabetic ketoacidosis. don't take trulicity if you're allergic to it, you or your family have medullary thyroid cancer, or have multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome type 2.
4:19 am
stop trulicity and call your doctor right away if you have an allergic reaction, a lump or swelling in your neck, severe stomach pain, changes in vision, or diabetic retinopathy. serious side effects may include pancreatitis. taking trulicity with sulfonylurea or insulin raises low blood sugar risk. side effects include nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, belly pain, and decreased appetite, which lead to dehydration and may worsen kidney problems. we're committed to helping ensure trulicity is available and affordable. learn more at among my patisensitivity as well tas gum issues. does it worry me? absolutely. new sensodyne sensitivity & gum gives us the dual action effect that really takes care of both our teeth sensitivity as well as our gum issues. there's no question it's something that i would recommend. since you're heading off to dad... i just got a zerowater. but we've always used brita. it's two stage-filter... doesn't compare to zerowater's 5-stage. this meter shows how much stuff, or dissolved solids, gets left behind. our tap water is 220.
4:20 am
brita? 110... seriously? but zerowater- let me guess. zero? yup, that's how i know it is the purest-tasting water. i need to find the receipt for that. oh yeah, you do. ial service toss honor the late congressman john lewis continue today in alabama. this is in just a few hours. lewis will make a final journey across the historic edmund pettus bridge. >> cnn's martin savidge is in
4:21 am
selma, alabama. martin, we're on day two of six of commemorations for john lewis. what do we expect to see today? >> reporter: good morning abby and victor. they're calling this the final crossing. it's obvious why. congressman john lewis' body will be loaded on a horse-drawn wagon. it will make its way across the bridge this morning. yesterday we talked about how the ceremony, the memorial in his hometown was personal with his family. today, it is going to be how poignant. because this bridge and congressman lewis are forever entwined in history because of the events on bloody sunday in march of 1965. i won't say it made him famous. he was well-known as being the youngest speaker on the march on washington in 1963. it did cement him into the conscience of america at a
4:22 am
pivotal time. i had the opportunity after a memorial service here to talk o to -- he grew -- i wondered what john lewis was like in those candid moments. here's what he said. >> he was the same way all day every day. there never was a change in his composition and how he chose to relate to others, no matter what your station was in life. that's a phenomenal quality. it wasn't something that was turned on and off. it was who he was. >> reporter: it is a phenomenal quality. it was, of course, who he was. in fact, you get that so many times what do they know or remember of john lewis. they will tell you, he was the real deal. in today's age, that is quite a remarkable statement to make. once the caisson gets to the apex of this bridge, it will
4:23 am
pause. there is a lot of reasoning that goes into the pause. you could also look at it from the vantage point of a young john lewis. cresting that bridge and seeing what lay ahead as far as the state police that were there, there was an angry white mob, the danger that was just in front of all of them and yet, they all went forward. it will be a remarkable moment as he crosses that bridge one last time. at the base of the bridge, he'll be met by his family and all will continue on to montgomery where john lewis will lie in state in the capitol. it will be a most memorable day. abby and victor. >> it will be a powerful moment. we're going to be bringing it to you on cnn. martin savidge, thank you so much. thank you, martin. talking about john lewis,
4:24 am
bernhard lafayette. he was lewis' roommate at american baptist theological sem nair i have in tennessee. -- seminary in tennessee. >> good morning. >> good morning to you. >> you lost congressman lewis and c.t. vivian on the same day. how are you feeling this weekend? >> well, it's been quite a struggle. it's beyond my imagination that this would happen. i've been able to adjust to it. to be very honest with you, i haven't had time to grieve. because i've been approached by the media many times. many different places. but i'm very much cognizant of the fact that the experience losses in life and gains in
4:25 am
life. and i feel like i will get over this just like we as a nation and a people will get over this coronavirus. >> you have so many rich memories. i want to go back to that roommate and some of those philosophical conversations about how you would approach this nonviolent approach to civil rights protests. tell me about the man you met then, the man you shared that space with who eventually became this iconic figure in american and global history. >> well, first of all, i want to describe john lewis as my brother. also, he was my -- you might say adviser in that sense. because he was a year ahead of me in school. but we were about the same age.
4:26 am
he was only a few months older. so i had the benefit of having someone who had taken the courses i had taken. so he was very helpful in making sure that i, you know, understood and that kind of thing. we're both from the south and grew up in a segregated communities and we experienced all kinds of injustices and that sort of thing. so we had a lot to talk about. >> yeah. >> we were very much young, the same young, had very much committed to the ministry. >> i also read that he led you to activism. we talked during the break. i told you that i wafrpd the documentary good trouble. there is a segment here where you frame the lunch counter sit-ins in a way i had not considered. let watch this clip and talk about it on the other side.
4:27 am
>> it was a moving fear that was within me, that i was sitting there demanding a god given right. in spite of all of this, i had to keep loving the people who denied me service. they come in and sit down, we're not used to them sitting down beside us. i wasn't raised with them, i didn't live with them. i'm not going to start now. >> first, we had to change. since we were no longer going to accept segregated lunch counters, it was over with. we protested because we had changed. >> you decided that you weren't going to accept. what we're seeing there is you all trying to desegregate lunch counters. in your mind, you already
4:28 am
desegregated. what you were doing is giving them an opportunity to change, too. >> yes. obviously, it was not something that they were used to because we had segregation laws. in other words, it was within the right of the merchants to refuse us service if we sat down. now, one of the things that sometimes people don't understand, and that is we were always allowed to go and order food to take out. we could stand there. because millions of people who came to order food were sent there by their own, you know, employers to get food. so it was not a problem not being able to eat. it was ee kwat respect by allowing us to sit at the lunch counter and eat. >> the idea that -- again, to
4:29 am
say you had decided, all of you decided that these counters are desegregated and now this is your opportunity to accept it. it really changed how i looked at that series in american history. bernard lafayette, thank you so much for being with us this morning. our condolences on the loss of your two very close friends on the same day. thank you so much, sir. >> thank you. abby? >> we're only 100 days away from the presidential election. this year, there is so much at play from the protest toss mail-in ballots and the current pandemic be. after taking a hit for the pandemic response, will the president retreat last week turn around the polls for him? do i use a toothpaste that whitens my teeth?
4:30 am
or one that's good for my teeth? now i don't have to choose. crest 3d white. it removes up to 95% of surface stains. and strengthens enamel. from the number one toothpaste brand in america. crest.

4:33 am
100 days until the 2020 presidential election.
4:34 am
this year, the traditional -- the big rallies, the conventions, they're going to be very different because of the coronavirus pandemic. >> yeah. another thing that is going to be very different about this year is that the pandemic is going to be the single biggest issue in this race. joining us now julia manchester, political reporter for the hill, britney shepard, for yahoo news. ladies, thank you both for joining us this morning. let's start there. this is really perhaps the most important statistic we've gotten. a fox news poll showing 29% of voters say covid is the most important thing that doubles the number who say the economy is the most important thing. the president, if you take a look at some of these battleground state polls we've gotten is really underwater with voters falling behind joe biden by double digits in some of these key races.
4:35 am
minnesota, pennsylvania and michigan. brittany, is there time for president trump to turn this around? he was hoping to run on the economy this year. it looks like voters have another idea. >> abby, 100 days is a long time. we all know a lock -- [ inaudible ] the trump campaign and the white house have a tall mountain to climb. they were banking on hitting joe biden very early on corruption and hunter biden, all the way back to impeachment. that was the cycle surprisingly enough. a challenge we've had, they haven't been able to land a punch. because they were banking on running on the economy, so many people are now unemployed, out of jobs, looking for work and unable to get money from the federal government. they've been less faithful to
4:36 am
him and more skeptical that he will bank on the kept promises, delivered slogan -- [ inaudible ] i think the challenge for trump and the white house is developing messaging around the campaign that will stick. a big point for them is suburban voters. this month in july, they spent $18 million in ads to try to speak to those suburban older white women voters saying that law and order is on the ticket and that joe biden believes in defunding the police. we know that could be categorically false. not accepting that messaging anymore. if the white house and president trump is unable to cree a ate narrative that sticks to november, i think they'll be in a lot of trouble. >> julia, you talked about the focus on florida from the trump campaign. the latest quinnipiac poll has
4:37 am
him 13 points behind joe biden. a little more than a third of respondents in florida approve of his handling of the pandemic. the campaign canceled the jacksonville portion. typically, a convention in a state is supposed to help the candidate. was potentially the cans calculation a way to help the campaign. >> absolutely. i think when president trump made the calculation to move the convention fro charlotte to jacksonville, he was thinking not only would he get the convention away from a state with stricter restrictions at the time but he would be in a state that's critical in 2020 in november. however, what we've seen is there's a lot of different approval of not only the president's handling in florida but governor ron desantis' handling of it. we see he's tied himself
4:38 am
incredibly closely to the president ever since he ran for governor in 2018. you've seen their approval ratings plummet in the state and also in terms of the coronavirus cases here, florida is obviously a hotspot. it would be a bad look to hold a convention where 7,000 people would gather. it would definitely was -- this move to move the convention or cancel it, somebody was about -- he had pictures of him with a mask calling is patriotic. he was bringing back the coronavirus task force briefings. this is definitely an about-face for the campaign trying to change the trajectory ahead of november. >> poll numbers are really very clear what's going on there. but it should have been the number of coronavirus deaths that cause -- julia manchester,

i've been involved in. communications in the media for 45 years. i've been taking prevagen on a regular basis for at least eight years. for me, the greatest benefit over the years has been that prevagen seems to help me recall things and also think more clearly. and i enthusiastically recommend prevagen.
4:43 am
it has helped me an awful lot. prevagen. healthier brain. better life. come on in, we're open. ♪ all we do is hand you the bag. simple. done. we adapt and we change. you know, you just figure it out. we've just been finding a way to keep on pushing. ♪ back with our reporters. brittany, i'll start with you. a lot has changed in the country since bernie sanders ended his campaign 3 1/2 months ago. about three weeks out until the
4:44 am
democratic convention. there's got to be a vp pick between now and then. what does the campaign believe now that they have to accomplish, that they have to solve with the pick for the potential vice president? >> well, i think the biden campaign has been straightforward. how do they -- the country and how do they strike creating the soul of a nation. joe biden has said in public and in private during fundraisers that the character of the country is on the ballot. if they can get somebody who is not divisive looking into august and beyond the ticket in november. if they can look for someone who can speak to the cultural and economic issues currently. we're not just dealing with a pandemic virus. we're dealing with racial reckoning, not just from policing, but ordinary everyday conversations and the biden campaign is trying to grapple with that in messaging in campaigning and in policies.
4:45 am
having a vice president who can speak to those culture issues are really important. joe biden is an old person, not to say they can't be in the young conversations. it's about coalition building in an effective way. somebody who -- the biden campaign is really banking on siphoning voters off of the trump apparatus -- [ inaudible ] being able to pick someone who is not going to alienate the trump voters, also not going to ail en ate the bernie sanders supporters. someone able to speak to relevant issues about climate change in a real way. that's a really tall order. we've heard so many names being thrown out in the last couple of weeks. it's going to be down to the wire to figure out who is going to be a perfect fit. i think those are the checklist items we'll be looking at. >> you said down to the wire. i would say probably four years ago right now, we already had a
4:46 am
vice presidential pick for the democrats. meanwhile, on the republican side, president trump is running on law and order. what we've been covering on the streets of portland and in major american cities, the federal officers on the ground there, it has become part of the election strategy, part of this pitch to suburban women, julia. where do you think this message is going? on the one hand, you've got this law and order message, perhaps trying to scare suburban women, on the other hand, do you look at the people who vice president biden is considering picking as a vp. you have several people will that -- kamala harris, val demming, you have a mayor on that shall list. the balance of these two things, julia, where do you think this leads us? suburban women go for the trump
4:47 am
message. >> we're watching and polling shows us a mixed message right now. polling of defunding the police and what's happening right now in terms of this racial reckoning we're seeing across the country shows what a majority of americans strongly believe there needs to be a change. however, they're less likely to embrace defunding the police as a whole. we're seeing republicans and president trump embrace that part of the polling that says they are unsure about defunding the police. president trump launched a $40 million ad buy here in florida recently. part of that ad buy is this one advertisement that shows someone calling 911 and they get this message saying that, due to defunding the police under vice president biden, they're unable to send an emergency throughout there to solve the issue. you know, president trump is very much capitalizing on that.
4:48 am
he risks turning off the suburban women voters who have been tracking towards democrats over the past eight to ten years or so. >> appreciate the conversation both of you. enjoy the week. >> thank you. hurricane hanna made landfall in texas. and some areas it hit. already hit hard by coronavirus. we'll bring you live updates from the weather center. some companies still have hr stuck between employees and their data. entering data. changing data. more and more sensitive, personal data. and it doesn't just drag hr down. it drags the entire business down -- with inefficiency, errors and waste. it's ridiculous.

hanna, first atlantic hurricane of the season, slammed into texas yesterday.
4:53 am
it since has been downgraded to a tropical storm. >> cnn's allison chinchar is in the cnn weather center following that and other severe weather threats here in the united states. allison what are you seeing down there? >> i think the key thing is even though it weakened a little bit it not done yet. you can see the outer bands on the radar still pushing in not only to texas, but portions of louisiana. keep that in mind. the problem is we already had a tremendous amount of rain. some spots picked up over a foot of rain. widespread amounts 4 to 6, but still an additional 2 to 4 inches expected on top of what we already had. you also have had very strong wind gusts, port mansfield wind gust of 87 miles per hour yesterday. you have about 250,000 people across the state of texas that are without power. and it may be a little slow going to get that power restored, especially given we do still have more storms in the forecast for today. they will continue not only through this morning, but also into the afternoon.
4:54 am
but by tonight, that system finally does push down fully into mexico. and until then, water spouts, isolated tornadoes will also be possible with some of those outer bands. we're also keeping an eye on our other storm we're watching, this is hurricane douglas, making its way towards hawaii right now. the target point at this point does look like best chance for landfall will be on the i'll of oahu. it will skirt along the northern edge of the island, making landfall as a category 1 hurricane. the main concerns with this particular storm are going to be surge, some very big rip currents and, again, even potentially some pretty heavy rainfall at times. especially for some of those northern islands there. places like maui, oahu, and even kawhi. and it is not the only thing, we're also keeping an eye on this potential system here as 90% chance of developing into a tropical system in the next five days. and when you look at the long-term of where this storm might go, notice it does anticipate taking it towards the
4:55 am
caribbean. so certainly something we will have to keep a close eye on over the next couple of days. >> yeah, we'll keep an eye on that, and all those other systems off the coast. allison chinchar, thank you so much. thank you all for starting your sunday morning with us. >> "inside politics" is up next. ♪
