4:04 pm
bring against judge amy coney barrett as she tries to ascend to highest court in the land. whether they'll be able to stop her or not well it doesn't seem like they have the votes the republicans are united in their support. democrats like chuck schumer generally oppose this nomination. but they do not have the votes at this point and we should know starting october 12th that's when the president says he believes in lindsey graham is going to begin holding hearings on her nomination. well joe biden was quick to respond to the president big announcement as two prepare to meet tuesday for first time on the debate stage. rich edson is live in wilmington, delaware with that. rich. reporter: good evening jon an biden campaign you heard if from the senate minority leader they are tieing vacancy in the nomination torn that they want to hit in this campaign and that is health care. vice president joe biden tweeted on all of this, quote, today

different avenue. >> republicans criticize biden for releasing list of who he's considering for the supreme court. biden says he will not bow to partisan pressure to produce a ligs, though, has promised to nominate a black woman. democrats are framing the upcoming supreme court kirchtion confirms process as power grab that threatens voting and abortion rightings and health care. that argument continues next week when biden vice presidential nominee senator kamala harris is scheduled to speak monday in raleigh, north carolina. campaign saying she'll talk about the supreme court and obamacare. this is just a couple of days ahead of that first presidential debate that is on tuesday. the vice president joe biden, former joe biden says he's expecting host of personal attacks from president trump throughout that session. jon. jon: reporting from wilmington, delaware. rich, thank you. for more on president trump's rally tonight in battle ground, pennsylvania, let's bring in trump campaign senior advisor mercedes, we put up the numbers
4:07 pm
a little bit earlier in the hour. the president is running behind joe biden in the latest fox news poll. although, if you factor in the margin of error, biden campaign potentially has a one point lead. do you think that rallies like one tonight are going to be effective in turning that around for the president? >> oh, absolutely. i think you're seeing the president with a rigorous schedule he just had five events yesterday in several states. obviously, now in pennsylvania, he's out there interacting with the voters. working on getting these votes and it's not only president, the vice president it's the first family. it's top surrogates going out there as well in these targeted states. we feel it is very important to talk to these voters, talk about the president's record of success in these past three and a half years. and, obviously, contrast that with 47 years of joe biden's failures and that's what we are focused on day in and day out,
4:08 pm
obviously, our internal polls are showing that the momentum is on our side. there's huge enthusiasm for the president and i think that's going to, obviously, lead to a victory come november third. >> let me put number from latest fox news poll on likely, pennsylvania voters, up on screen 51% of likely voters say they like joe biden, 44% like president trump, and then there are couple of other i suppose lesser candidates in the race 3% and 2% undecided. but again if you factor in the margin of error 3%. this could be a 1 point race. your internal polling, what shows the president polling ahead? >> well in many of our targeted states, either the president is tied or leading in these states so what i think is what we have is joe biden on defense he's having to spend money in
4:09 pm
minnesota places like new hampshire, and nevada where, you know, hillary clinton won in 2016. we feel very strongly that we're basically spending a lot of our resources and time in these states so that we can flip these states so that they're become red states so it is a lot of the investment in terms of a strong ground game we just hit over 2.2 million voters who are -- 2.2 million volunteers who are now part of this campaign. and i just have to tell you momentum is really on our side. i just came back from minnesota yesterday. and what you're seeing is a lot of our ground game very much activated knocking on doors. making phone calls and where is joe biden? he's calling a lid at 9 a.m. in the morning. and you don't see that real ground game action happening in a lot of these states. >> i imagine you heard senator
4:10 pm
majority leader chuck schumer in the top of the hour in news conference complaining about nomination of judge amy coney barrett says, you know, her nomination to the supreme court for ascension to the supreme court would bring on well, basically everything except maybe nuclear armageddon there was an interesting statement we just received from senator lisa myrrh murkowski who opposed any vote on a nominee before the president, presidential election. i think we can get that up on the screen. but she says for weeks i've stated i do not support picking up a responsible supreme court vacancy this close to an election. but today, the president exercised his constitutional authority to nominate an individual to fill the vacancy on the supreme court. left by the passing of judge ruth bader ginsburg. i welcome the opportunity to meet with the supreme court nominee just as i did in 2016.
4:11 pm
it almost sounds like she's leaving the door open for a yes vote. >> well, you know, this is a next stage of this nomination process, obviously, amy being able to meet with a number of the senators. really being able to tell her story, and quite frankly, she's the right choice for this time. when you look at her legal experience, when you look at her judicial record, obviously, her time also extensionive experience as a professor and lit gator. you know, i just think that time and time again what we've seen is these bipartisan group of law professors coming out and saying she's rigorous, fair minded, respectful and you know, i really believe she is just going to be the right choice for this time. it's why we need to move forward with getting her confirmed. we've seen, obviously, in the past senate confirm previous
4:12 pm
justices in just a short period of time. ruth bader ginsburg they confirm her in 32 days and so you know, the president again, he completed his duty. his rightful duty to fill this vacancy, and now it is up to the senate to provide advice and consent and vote her in to be the next justice on the supreme court. for democrats -- >> love to be a fly. >> i think for democrats it is problem mat whik they're talking about attacking courts and fundamentally transforming the institution of the supreme court. ting they're going receive a lot of back backlash with that. jon: that's going to be an issue to be considered i suppose after the election in the event joe biden were to win love to be on the fly on the wall i started to say at the meeting with kamala harris, and amy coney barrett. judge amy coney barrett mercedes with the trump campaign. thank you. now for more on our top story
4:13 pm
trump nomination of amy coney barrett to succeed ruth bader ginsburg on the supreme court. barrett is a judge on the chicago based 7th circuit u.s. court of appeals. president trump nominated her for that post on may 8th of 2017. the supreme i'm sorry senate confirmed her later that year october it 1st. david is at the supreme court with more for us. david. >> good evening well those who loved late justice antonin scalia are going to be thrilled with president trump's pick of judge amy coney barrett from that 7th circuit court of appeals based in chicago. she lives in south bend indiana with her husband and seven children but in 1998, 22 year ago she clerked in this very building for the late justice antonin scalia so she knows his philosophy studied him watched him closely, in fact, she's a texturist like him and read the constitution word for word and accepted the constitution and the meeting of the constitution literally and took that literally.
4:14 pm
now, barrett is a win for conservatives. today in the rose guard within her family watching, she pledged to follow that document the constitution to serve as justice of the supreme court for all americans regardless of philosophy or political persuasion. here she is. >> i clerked for justice scalia more than 20 years ago. but the lessons i learned still resonate. his judicial philosophy is mine too. a judge must apply the law as written. judges are not policymakers. and they must be resolute in setting aside any policy views they might hold. >> in 2017 she was confirmed 55-43 for circuit bench spot three democrats voted to put her on bench and west virginia joe manchin and virginia king and put out a statement today saying he will not support coney
4:15 pm
barrett to be sitting on the supreme court. now barrett was rumored to be a front runner in 2018. but the president actually chose brett kavanaugh instead although he personally interviewed coney barrett in 2018 so she clearly has been on his radar. now, it is a race against time. jon to transform, judge barrett with the circuit court of appeals to clock is certainly ticking now over on capitol hill also to point out, here at the supreme court, the fall term kicks off one week from monday. a lot going on. jon. jon: daifd at the supreme court david, thank you. so as david just told you, judge barrett received a handful of democrat votes when she was set, when she was installed on the court appeals. but her nomination to the supreme court sets up a contentious confirms battle in the senate republicans have pledged tholed a vote before the election which is just 38 days away. democrats where they'll do everything possible to make sure that does not happen.
4:16 pm
congressional correspondent chad has more on that from capitol hill. chad. erchg well good evening here is the timetable. they hope to have a confirmation hearing around middle of october. probably the week of october 12th and then maybe put this on the floor just before the election white house chief of staff mark meadows today would not completely commit to having this done by november 1st we'll see it is going to be very interesting. but starting this week will meet with mitch mcconnell and won't have a cher to escort that term around because of covid and some of it is because of time and a volatile month according to tom cotton republican senator from arkansas. >> when you have senior most in thes attacking judge baiters and other judges for their faith it creates an environment that unleashes the kind of vile we've seen on social media today coming from the left. >> with the nomination of barrett democrats pivoted to policy and health care issues,
4:17 pm
democrats poll well with vehiclers on hang supreme court scheduled to hear a case in november which could undercut obamacare. >> the most urgent near term and i think consequential issue that is the affordable care act. that will be an argument in november 10th, and it's then the president this is no secret the president objective i think congressional republicans to have it overturn to really just destroy it and to wipe out protections for preexisting conditions. >> now chuck schumer says vote for amy coney barrett to strike down affordable care act. now the chair of the senate judiciary committee lindsey graham says he's committed to ensuring that the nominee gets a challenging, fair, respectful hearing i tell you what that confirmation here hearing infused with politics lindsey graham is facing competitive against jamie harrison and also a member of the judiciary committee kamala harris the

4:31 pm
signature of the trump campaign and final weeks before election day. and every time air force one touches down as it did just moments ago it is a huge crowd pleaser. and another big crowd pleaser tonight the moment that president trump walked out with judge amy coney barrett everyone here was watching on the big screen and it is expected to be the very first thing that president trump is expected to talk about tonight when he steps up on stage. he's also expected to call out his opponent joe biden for refusal to release his own supreme court short list. the campaign says that the president is expected to say that joe biden is refusing to do that and the name will be hand picked by socialist, also say that if given power far left will pass the supreme court with radicals. so listen for that tonight. now, this is going to be president trump's second rally in pennsylvania in just four days. a sign of the increase
4:32 pm
importance that both campaigns are placing on this state in the final week before election day. polls right now tight race latest fox poll actually gave joe bide an slight edge. but as president trump was leading the white house, moments ago, he said that he feels very good about where he stands in pennsylvania with 38 days until election day. jon. jon: kristin fisher there in harrisburg where the president is campaigning. kristin thank you. about to open the door and president will emerge when it begins to speak we will surgery have that for you live. for more on all of the days eventses let's send in fox newsradio white house correspondent and attorney as well. john it was least well kept secret in washington amy coney barrett had been on the short list for a long time almost gave the job to her that he ultimately gave to brett kavanaugh but he wanted her to have some more seasoning get some more time on the bench as a
4:33 pm
federal appeals court judge we understand. what has she done in the three years since that may effect her nomination process? >> well jon she's prorch proven her worth as conservative jurist on 7th court of appeal when is her name was first mentioned on this short list so many conservatives around the country in the legal community really embraced the idea of her possible nomination and you're seeing this now. now that the president has nominated her. she's a jurist in the mold of antonin scalia whom she clerk on the u.s. supreme court that and speech accepting nomination says is what she said she'll act when she's on the supreme court and she's confirmed by the full senate in the next few weeks. >> the opinions that antonin scalia wrote whether they were in the majority or the decenting opinions were absolutely fabulous, it will be fascinating to see whether she can match him
4:34 pm
in terms of her eloquence in those opinions. do you have any thoughtings on that, jon? >> well i agree with you. that was one of the great things that i really enjoyed so much in law school is reading the opinions of antonin scall scalia whether it was in the majority or writing a strong decent that's one of the things that is a tough act to follow if that is the person who is your role model ruth bader ginsburg also a very eloquent writer, and, in fact, what we heard from judge amy coney barrett a tribute to her in accepting this nomination from the president. i think that her name will be invoked certainly by democratic senators throughout the three day of confirmation hearings that are likely to get started in the next two and a half weeks. jon: it was a hometown crowd you might say there in the rose garden when the president introduced judge barrett and her family and for that nomination when she emerged from her and we
4:35 pm
expect, you know, he's going get energized by a crowd in harrisburg as well. take us through the process, though, democrats, i mean, we heard chuck schumer at the top of the hour, saying that, you know, judge barrett nomination to the supreme court is essentially going to bring a play to locus down on the united states and every other bad thing. do democrats have any ability to stop her nomination? the short answer is no. the numbers are there in the u.s. senate right now to make this nomination go forward in the timeline that senate judiciary committee want it is to and votes appear to be there to confirm amy coney barrett for that 9th feat on the u.s. supreme court. there's very little that the democrats can do even to slow down this process. so as we all know the president like her confirm taking her place on the u.s. supreme court before november 3rd before
4:36 pm
election day. i think jon that's likely to happen. >> all right we also had a kind of a curious statement that i read a little while ago from lisa murkowski of alaska she's within who said that she felt that based on what happened during the kavanaugh hearings that, that i'm sorry while the garland nomination what i'm talking about that there should not be a vote in the u.s. senate before the presidential election. that the next president essentially whether it's president trump or joe biden right next president should make a nomination. today she put out a statement that was a little vague and it almost sounded as if she be willing to cast her vote. she said that the president has made his nomination as he's constantly constitutionally entitled to do. and she looked forward to meeting the nominee. did you read that statement and what did you interpret from that? >> i interpreted it in the same way that you're interpreting it, jon.
4:37 pm
that is that she's opening the door to voting for the president's nominee which would add a little bit of a cushion to the president's efforts to confirm judge amy coney barrett and it should be interesting to also see whether susan collins, the senior senator from maine also makes a similar statement whether she also meets with judge barrett as she goes through the process of meeting with those senators, mostly republican senators who wish to meet with her before the confirmation hearing take place. jon: i don'ton kamala harris wag on judge amy coney barrett a mother of seven kids two adopted you know, generally, i mean, even by her ideological opponents she is said to be an incredibly kind and generous woman. >> well, i doubt very much that
4:38 pm
senator kamala harris is going to go after a judge amy coney barrett in personal terms but rather through the things that she's written as a federal circuit court judge and also her work as an academic sitting on the faculty of the university of notre dame law school. i don't think that she's going to go after her in terms of her faith or other thingings related to her personal life. that would be a political mistake on the part of senator harris and i don't think that the democrats want to go down that road and further energize republicans just weeks away from the november election. jon: senator dianne feinstein had no problem going after her on the basis of faith when she was up for appeals court job. >> that's right. you know, i think that it will be interesting to see the manner in which she questions judge barrett because senator feinstein still is on the senate judiciary committee, in fact, she's the ranking member of the
4:39 pm
senate judiciary member perhaps she'll be counseled don't go after her in personal terms because it will have the effect of energizing the republican base. and that's not a good thing when you're talking about such a close election. you mention the president in pennsylvania today. and that is one of those states that is so critical to both joe biden and president trump, and every little bit counts, and so energizing the base for democrats and republicans really will make a huge difference as we get into the closing days of the presidential campaign. >> john stick with us we're going to go to pa big 747 is there right behind the crowd of the back drop. but president has just been introduced. a little hard to see on my monitor but it looks like the president is coming down the stairs waving to the crowd, and the crowd is waving back. it won't take him long to make his way down the steps of air
