6:00 pm
looming tomorrow night. thanks for watching us. miss megan is next p.m. i'm bill o'reilly reporting from l.a. remember the spin stops here and we're definitely looking out for you. break being tonight the super tuesday of primary season six states holding elections today, five of them with senate primaries that could help determine the balance of power on capitol hill come november. both parties carefully watching the results tonight to see in particular if republican voters make the same missteps in candidate selection that they made in the past that have cost them so dearly. that's where we begin. i'm megan kelly. a busy night here as we also get word that an outspoken critic of president obama has pleaded guilty to campaign finance violations. is this exactly what the
6:01 pm
administration wanted? but first, just a short time ago the associated press calling the kentucky republican senate primary for senate minority leader mitch mcconnell, cruising to an easy victory. however earlier in this race it wasn't so sure. the fall for mr. mcconnell may be a different story whenner faces a strong democrat in that kentucky senate race. meantime in georgia, a crowded republican senate primary is expected to go to a runoff. these are the top three candidates as of right now. what does this race mean? we'll put them on the board any minute now. in oregon, let's go, there an ugly race has unfolded on the gop side between a pediatric neurosurgeon and state representati representative. so that was the question. we watched a bunch of these
6:02 pm
republicans having these primaries. what are we watching. i've never heard any of these candidates. what does this mean to me? >> because of harry reid. harry reid is the majority leader of the united states senate, and republicans would like that not to be the case. and the ability of republicans to pick not more conservative or more moderate but most lectable candidates for each senate race will determine whether or not basically that harry reid gets to continue in his job or if the dynamic in washington finally changes. >> now last time around the republicans screwed it up and they chose a bunch of candidates that were not electable. that's why harry reid won re-election because the person he was running against he was demonized there he went. the question this time around what are they going to do this time and what are we seeing tonight? >> we're seeing tonight what we saw in the last batch of primaries and batch before that republicans are making smart choices so far. certainly we've seen
6:03 pm
establishment figures like in north carolina win. we've seen outsiders like in nebraska win. in each case the republican primary voter seems pretty savvy. certainly a lot of conservatives wanted mitch mcconneebl punished for being a deal maker. so they passed on him and went with mcconnell who is stronger to go into the general election. in georgia the concern was about congressman paul brown with outspoken views, he made some nazi reference, said some things that caused a lot of comfortableness. he's out of the running right now. the way it looks like right now, the two candidates who are in the leader the two most moderate candidates in the race, surprisingly enough, but what republicans are seeing in georgia what they saw one kentucky that's good news for them. the story that gets overlooked the most important one about
6:04 pm
what's happening out in arkansas. tom cotton is a freshman congressman. you've had him on. the republicans recruited him to run in arkansas which is where they want very much to beat incumbent pryor. this is an example how the republican party can retake the senate if they can unite behind strong candidates like tom cotton that's how they do it not by getting into the shouting match that carried us in november. >> he's one of the guys who had his military service attacked by the or side. but here's my question but karl rove will be here later. more and more today we're hearing this theme from democrats. it seems to be coming out of nowhere. we're seeing these sort of establishment republicans win tonight and i don't want to say the tea party is not winning but the more radical tea party is not winning, okay. whatever the word is.
6:05 pm
>> right. >> but nonetheless that's not what you would think if you were list listening to debbie wasserman-schultz. they are coming out the same messages over and over saying the civil war in the gop is over, the tea party won. it's engulfed the entire republican party. what do you make of it? >> well, you know, since it's georgia primary night we'll say bless her heart. it's a tough night for her. tough election cycle for a peter. that's the truth. their hope was that florida and kentucky specifically would be chances for them to take red seats because of disastrous primaries for the republican party. didn't happen. and now guess what happens? the scrutiny shifts from within the republican party in georgia it's got to come after a runoff but the scrutiny shifts to the candidate. guess what? georgia is a great example. michele nunn, she's sam nunn's daughter. as scrutiny shifts to her she's
6:06 pm
not having a great outing. >> you had a great outing. thanks for being here. >> you bet. we got team coverage tonight of tonight's mid-term primaries. we're standing by to bring us the fallout from the kentucky race results. we're keeping a close eye on the battle in georgia. and we go an unusual showdown in one pennsylvania congressional district. a pro-life democrat is take on three other candidates for a shot in november. shannon. >> reporter: democrats battling for the primary win in pennsylvania's 13th congressional district sparked this question. is there room for a candidate that backs limits on abortion in the democrat party. boyle has been criticized by pro-life and pro-choice. he supports planned parenthood but is taking heat for
6:07 pm
supporting law that doctors have admitting privileges in hospitals within 30 miles. the measures have found plenty support in pennsylvania in the wake of multiple murder convictions for a philadelphia doctor. but not everyone approves of those laws. >> he voted for something that successfully closed down six planned parenthood centers in pennsylvania. he is not pro choice and it is a litmus test and he fails it. >> to say you're not pro choice because you want the state to watch abortion clinics. it says a lot where these groups are their ability to tolerate a range of ruse. >> analysts are interested in how a candidate supports a legislation or doesn't affect their electability. also breaking tonight a
6:08 pm
well-known filmmaker and outspoken critic of president obama pleading guilty to violating campaign finance laws. hours ago in a federal court in manhattan, dinesh d'souza pleads guilty. >> i don't know. i was facing two charges, megan. the first one was exceeding the campaign financially mitts. the second one was causing the government, the election commission to file a false report and that second charge a maximum of five years in prison. so what happenedcy pleaded guilty to the charge of exceeding the campaign financially mitts and the government agreed to drop the other charge. >> there was never any doubt you
6:09 pm
did it. >> right. >> you're defense in this case was not i didn't do it. it was i didn't do it with intent, i didn't do it with the right requisite of mind and selective prosecution of the government who doesn't go after anybody for this kind of crime except one of the president's biggest critics. >> interestingly i didn't say at the beginning, i didn't exceed the limits and now i'm saying the opposite. on the contrary of the facts that i, you know, induced two of my close associates to contribute i reimbursed them. i did do that. it's an end run around the campaign finance law. i did admit doing that from the beginning. but i did contest the issue of selective prosecution, why was i being -- we made a motion before the judge on selective prosecution but in a ruling last week he said no you can't bring that into the case. so what really happened is i was going into a trial with no
6:10 pm
defense and so it seemed to me wise to, to have the second charge -- >> why did you think this was selective prosecution. alan dershowitz, ted cruz thought this was selective prosecution. four senators wrote a letter to demand what was the basis for bringing this hagerstown against you. the "the washington times" points out in an-year-old yesterday mr. obama's 2008 presidential campaigns was fined $400,000 for failing to disclose millions of dollars in contributions and missing deadlines for filing excess contributions. no one was threatened with prosecution. is this about you or upholding campaign laws. >> it's remarkable to see the cases that do and don't get pressed. look at harry reid. there's multiple finance campaign things with him. he used money from his campaign finance to pay for his daughter's wedding.
6:11 pm
you look at numerous other cases and it seems the obama administration does not choose to push those. so that's really the issue. it's the issue of fair treatment. you know you don't want to have a country where lady justice has one eye open and she winks at her friends and then gives the evil eye to her enemies. >> let me ask you about the substance of it and the violation of law. a lot of our viewers saw your film and enjoyed it. they may not believe you're somebody who would flout the law. why did do you it? >> my long time friend, wendy long, i've known her for 30 years and she was running for senate in new york. her campaign was flailing, and i wanted to help her. so i just chose the wrong and stupid way to do it. i shouldn't have done it. and i'm taking responsibility for it. >> you're going to get jail time? >> i don't know. that's up to the judge. there's a hearing -- there's a sentencing in september and i'll find out. >> do you feel chilled at all
6:12 pm
from, you know, the kind of work you do, the kind of films you make now? >> one thing, megan, this is a bit of a scary process. i'm determined to forge ahead. i feel that i got a powerful message. the message of our film "america" that comes out in a month is the issue of justice. very often as conservatives we tout liberty but the american founding when you go back and read the declaration of independence it's an indictment environment justice of the crown and liberty for the american founders was a solution to the problem of justice. so justice is at the center of our film. >> does it scare you >> it's a scary thing to have the federal government that has a lot of power having you in its sights. and so i'm not -- i mean it's a process that i have been going through and i'm not done with it but it's not going to deter me from speaking out on public issues. >> you don't recommend it to others. good luck to you. thanks for coming on. we're taking you thoughts. follow me on twitter and let me know what you think.

6:20 pm
and the atmosphere outside the museum, megan, it's almost circus like. people walking around with balloons and people going up into the within dwos their face up against the window. that's sacred ground. bicycle guys riding around in bicycles. they have to do something about this. and i don't know about you, but if my family member died, i wouldn't want them buried under the museum by a gift shop and people paying $25 a head coming in. it's completely disrespectful. >> they say you can go in, the holocaust museum in washington, d.c., the pearl harbor museum in hawaii all of them have gift shops. you're talking about 3,000 dead americans and you can buy a sweat shirt. >> or buy a hoodie or baseball cap. that part of it when you walk in there you feel you're in yankee stadium. you know, it seems like this is the sort of thing that always

tactics. let's take a look at that. >> should i have done my due diligence and figured out who this guy was. yes. i shouldn't have trusted my friend had actually vet this guy properly. they say that they set themselves up as a person, as an entity that finds out dishonesty. they are trying to fine who is being dishonest or hypocritical and yet they do this and they have a secret guy with, you know, a fake guy? that's not dishonest? >> what's going on here? she and ed begly jr. the other star, trying to get ahead of this story because james o'keefe will unveil this at the canne film festival tomorrow. how did he get invited to that. >> he has a lot of connections. i found out what happened. i've interviewed james o'keefe a number of times. he's a journalist. the issue i always come back to

breaking tonight as we first told you at the top of the hour, senator minority leader mitch member connell as survived his primary in which he was challenged by a tea party candidate who made some errors in the race. it was a race democrats had hoped would be a tough and bruising campaign. our chief political correspondent carl cameron is live tonight for us. what happened to matt bevin? >> reporter: rough night. the polls closed at 7:00 and almost immediately the associated press called it for mcconnell. the senate gop leader was never much in danger largely because he prepared for a tea party challenge early and neutralize ad lot of it when he was endorsed by kentucky's other senator rand paul which undercull bevin's candidacy. bevin had tea party and super p.a.c. support. he made some mistakes like
6:34 pm
speaking at a cock rally fighting. both leaders mcconnell and john boehner have easily defeated their tea party rivals. as of tonight we're a quarter way through of the nation's primary. 125 seats had their nominees picked. there's uncalled races tonight. not one incumbent lost to a tea partier. all of them have won. >> senator mcconnell faced democrat grimes. >> she's kentucky secretary of state. she's been slamming mcconnell for months already. mcconnell's favorable ratings are low in kentucky. he can't take anything for granted. he's a major league institution in kentucky who showed tonight in his victory remarks over bevin he'll tie grimes to the president at every opportunity. >> is vote for my opponent is vote for a guy who says coal makes you sick.

6:36 pm
>> reporter: i doubt it. i think this is to promote a book. be hard to go into these interviews and lay out a comprehensive vision of the future for the book and then go back to sell the book. >> you think this is about a book. she doesn't need publicity or money from a book. is this not just an excuse to get people out there with diane sawyer and start making her case? >> well, first of all the book is important to framing any potential run. she says she's not made up her mind, she will make up her mind next year. certainly if you think about running you want to frame your most recent experience most recently her experience as secretary of state in the most favorable light. i'm not sure she benefits from a longer primary season, i think she has a shorter candidacy. the more that she's a candidate
6:37 pm
the worse it is for her. she's the front-runner. she doesn't need to have a long contest. she wants to shorten it up, make the contest short so anybody who is thinking about running against her has a shorter time to get their act together. >> let's talk about what's happening in the republican party. we talked with carl cameron how the establishment candidates in the republican party seem to be winning beating back some tea party challengers. and yet listen to the message coming out of some top democrats today. >> the civil war that's been raging in the republican party is really over. the tea party has won it. essentially they have -- they have swallowed the establishment. >> this is not moderates versus tea party. the tea party has taken over the entire republican party. >> the tea party has taken over the republican party. i mean, what republican incumbents learned from 2010 and 2012 they better run and govern
6:38 pm
like the tea party or -- >> like the conservatives. >> some new talking points. >> yep. this is the kind of stuff you're stuck saying when you're in a deeper hole as the democrats are this year. look, i wrote about this in the "wall street journal" a couple of weeks ago. the reason that republican candidates are winning is because they are uniting the party. they are not discarding their personal beliefs, they are fining a message that can bring people together. that's why you have people like tom cotton in arkansas, steve danes in montana. we had a primary in west virginia shelly moore united airlines the republican party. some national groups that had said we don't think she's conservative enough but she had strong support among hometown people, ran a strong campaign, gave a positive message and 14 points up over the secretary of state. debbie wasserman-schultz, i feel
6:39 pm
sorry for her in a way because she will be saying silly things all the way through the november election. that's all they are stuck with. >> in the meantime your group american crossroads has just confirmed a $10 million ad buy targeting four critical senate races. which ones are they and why 10 million bucks. that's a lot of money. >> well, look, for example one of them is north carolina. in the republican primary that just concluded harry reid super p.a.c. spent $4.7 million attacking the front-runner in the republican primary there. the democrat senator spent $2 million. they spent $6.7 million in five or six weeks attacking the republican front-runner who did win the nomination. we'll go in there and help from vied cover to help heal those wounds with $3.6 million. in arkansas the republican candidate was uncontested in the
6:40 pm
primary, tom cotton. between two democrat super p.a.c.s they spent $2.6 million. we'll spend a million dollars. some other groups are spending some money. colorado, seven weeks ago, cory gardner entered the race. since then outside groups on the democratic side have spent $1.7 million attacking him. we'll put up $2.3 million to support him. in alaska, $1.7 million spent in recent months by the democrats to attack dan sullivan who is the front-runner in the republican primary. the republican primary is in august and attacking the guy most likely to win the nomination. so we thought he deserved to have some defense. >> karl, thanks for being here. >> you bet. thank you. breaking tonight election returns coming in right now in a crowded republican senate primary race in georgia and it looks like, this one is going to be a runoff. senior national correspondent john roberts is live in atlanta
6:41 pm
at the campaign headquarters of the candidate david perdue. john? >> reporter: megan, thanks so much. it's beginning to look like it will be a good night for david perdue. he has been duking it out with jack kingston. but now beginning to pull ahead as we're getting results from the bigger counties. it is, though, looking here in the state of georgia like it will be another win for the establishment and another defeat for tea party. david perdue, businessman, he's running in the lead followed by kingston. then the three cane who are backed up by the tea party, karen handel, congressman phil gingrey and paul broun running behind. who comes out as the victor has bragging rights because it looks
6:42 pm
like it will be perdue and kingston. people are expecting a bruising battle. the two have been going after each other in this early primary and go after each other leading up to the 22nd. they want to battle michele nunn who looks like she's poised to do very well. this is a very important race for the republican party. they want the right candidate, somebody that they make sure they keep the seat in the republican column and not like has happened before in the republican party lose something that should have bean sure thing. this is a very important race. >> so interesting. john, thank you. also tonight a middle school cancels its special honors night for students. but after days of controversy it makes a stunning decision. trace gallagher has this unbelievable story. somebody's feelings may have been hurt. a new memo surfacing that could prove embarrassing to this
6:43 pm

breaking tonight new evidence that the obama administration was repeatedly and specifically warned that multiple medical facilities were cooking their books to cover up treatment delays of our veterans. we reported last night the president was informed of these issues with these facilities during his transition back in 2008. tonight "the washington post" which broke yesterday's story reports today that a new memo from 2010 shows this administration, again, was made aware of these practices. it happened repeatedly.
6:48 pm
my next guest says there is possibly a case to be built against this administration. andy mccarthy is the national review contributing editor and former federal prosecutor. i just want the viewers to know it is not hey, wait times are bad. they are bad, president obama, as you take the reigns be aware. it was specific about don't rust the wait times that the medical facilitys is reporting. this is what they were warned. that va inspector general needs appointed and you need to test the accuracy of the reported waiting times. here we are six years into the administration. veterans have been dying reportedly because of these wait times and now because it's finally coming to a head, and the president says i learned about it from press reports. what can be done? who can be held accountable because even though we don't have the president's memo on this, robert petzel resigned last week -- he was going to leave anyway -- he admits to

seeing these peopleos. >> the political accountability is always more important when you're dealing with the executive branch than any criminal liability. and the person who is accountable for the executive branch, this is shocking, i know, because you never get that sense in the coverage, is the president. actually when the framers put together the executive branch, they repose all of the power not just some of it all of it in the chief executive. the president. they wanted him to be accountable for what everybody did. >> in his defense, if he were ever pursued either politically or legally he would say it's a big government. there's a lot of agencies. i get update. i rely on my cabinet secretary. the one who is not doing a good job should have accountable. >> this president tells government to do everything. he wants government to do more. now he's going tell me it's a big government don't hold me responsible but let me run this, this and that. >> how would you make a case.
6:50 pm
i'm questioning. if this happened in the private sector where you had a chief executive who was not managing the system and people were potentially dying as a result of fraud, that had been brought to the attention of the chief executive, knowledge was at least imparted if not in fact held by the chief, the criminal prosecutor would be going after him. >> right. a good prosecutor always wants to find a theme that the jury can look at the facts like a lens through. and understand things better. with respect to this, and i would say with respect to the obama administration scandals across the board the theme would be fraud because fraud is the one thread that runs through all this. it's a felony, by the way. it's one of these things that's a scheme so you prove it like a conspiracy. and i think that's the box that you would try to put it in to make people under it. >> never will happen but shining a light on it and getting to the bottom of it. that's a different story. good to see you. >> good to see you.
