3:39 pm
closing argument for some republicans. >> that's part of the problem from the white house, you don't hear the president talking that much about the economy as he is about immigration. in the red states, missouri, indiana, west virginia, immigration is a pretty potent issue. but when you look at the house map and you look at how many seats could end up flipping in suburban areas that are just a little uncomfortable with the anti-immigration or anti-illegal immigration rhetoric. there are a lot of strategists wondering why president trump is not talking about the good economic news and focusing on immigration. >> as they noted, people notice when the economy is bad. i think the main significance of the economy being so good and it has been good for a while now is it has temper that desire to throw the bums out or completely change the management of the country. a lot of it is directly tied to republican policies, whether it's tax cuts or regulatory
3:40 pm
pullback or any of the other things that the trump administration and republicans in congress have done. and are particularly noteworthy i think is the increase in hourly wages. often times we had good economic news where it seems to benefit the wealthy and not necessarily trickle down. this is good for employees and people throughout the economic. >> bret: speaking of the immigration issue, the incumbent democrat speaking about supporting president trump. >> stopped them at the border. >> then what do you do? >> if the president has to use every tool at his disposal and i 100% back him up on that. whether it's turning him back because we are not equipped to handle that many asylum claims into our system -- >> if you are for it, prove it. take your name off dianne feinstein's open borders bill. claire mccaskill is sponsoring a bill and has been for months. so put your money where their yr
3:41 pm
mouth is and take your name off. we want the republicans call it the open border bill, it's actually not called that but it is a bill that every democrat signed onto and it has this thing that says you can't arrest anyone within 100 miles of the border, for anything if they are an illegal alien. >> my reaction to a lot of the things a president has been saying over the last week as he is playing on people's fears, particularly with respect to this caravan which will probably peter out long before it gets to the border. having said that, he's not doing it by accident, he's doing it because of fears exist. claire mccaskill's interview with you epitomizes that perfectly. i believe joe donnelly is saying similar things in indiana and he understands that in red states he has the democrats on the defensive. with respect to that bill, it illustrates the democrats and ability so far to come up with a popular message regarding
3:42 pm
immigration that speaks about the issue in a way that's both positive toward immigration and capable of gaining a majority. instead you have people like claire mccaskill running away from the national party and the washington-based party and they are message. if there is any hope or saving grace for that within it for the democrats, it has to do with josh's point about the suburbs. i think the red-hot stuff that the president is presenting on immigration may be turning off moderate republicans and women in those suburban districts that they need to hold. >> bret: we will see and we will see how much the economy and the spinal jobs report moves people one way or the other. i want to put up the power rankings. in the senate, we have it really the same as we've had it. 50 republicans and 45 democrats. this takes a look at the races, the liens and the likely this, we have five toss-up races there and that will designed decide e
3:43 pm
power there. now we have it down to 29. you need to 18 for the majority, and you need a few more to pick up about 17 to get that, if you count the likely is. all right, race by race, josh? >> one of the house races i'm looking closely at is the sixth district of kentucky. it's a trump district, but the democrat who is a celebrated military veteran, amy mcgrath, is running neck and neck with andy barr. they are watching the race closely and it closes early so we will know the results pretty quickly. >> i chose pennsylvania 16. this is the kind of race that if democrats win this it will point to them having a very good night. this is a district that trump won by 20, and so depending on how that goes it might be an indicator of the whole evening.
3:44 pm
>> those house polls are tough. it doesn't seem like it really sticks. all these polls are 1-2 points and could really swing each one of these races. >> since everyone is using number six, i have the sixth district two. but peter roskam has been there since 2006 and republicans have held the seat since 1972, through all the blue waves that went to and fro in that time. but he's in the race of his life against democrat sean kasten and this is one of those races that really epitomizes because it went for hillary clinton. this district went for hillary by seven points last time around. a lot of republicans retired rather than run in districts where hillary one. if he can't pull it off there, i think he's going to show there is a long night ahead for republicans because it's typical of these bellwether, now purple

on november 5th, the united states was lifted as part of the nuclear deal on iran's shipbuilding, shipping and banking sectors. these tinctures hit as core areas of iran's economy. they were necessary for the changes we seek on the part of the regime. >> if they have focused their plans on placing the great iranian nation under economic problems so that the people will be fed up and bow down before america. we must stay together and bring the u.s. to its knees on both the social and economic issues. >> bret: iran sanctions going back in place on monday. the president tweeting out a picture saying, they are coming, in "game of thrones" style, which had twitter heads exploding all over the place. back with the panel. chuck? >> you just don't know what to say about the when tour is coming reference there. but the real difference is, it's

been coming because it's been mike pompeo's plan all along. they had to get out of the new deal and really cracked down on iran show that the obama policy was the misguided way to work with iran's other behavior in the region, besides just the nuclear thing. by the way, this is one reason that the administration tried so lightly around the issue of jamaal khashoggi. because they believe they need to keep the kingdom of saudi arabia on their side as a bulwark against iran. and this demonstrates why that murder had to be handled so gingerly because they knew that november 5th was coming up. or in their view had to be handled gingerly. >> bret: was pointed out that they did not find that tweet so nicely. >> i think it is worth saying, the administration has done a pretty good job of handling that departure process. they want to make sure you are
