8:00 pm
tragedy while we are still trying to mourn for the victims. but this is why so many people tune politics out at a time or we have to engage and care for each other and love one another. i hope pray for america, for ou country, for some unity. we needed now more than ever. thanks for watching. it's america now and forever. >> mellow and welcome to fox news @ night, i'm shannon bream in washington. breaking tonight, devastation a small texas town where 19 children and go adults had been killed in one of the deadliest school shootings in our history. we have team coverage tonight. kevin corke is monitoring the white house response to this tragedy. bret baier is here as well. laura ingal explains what
8:01 pm
briefly shattered communities that were down this horrific path are offering to the people of uvalde texas. bill melugin is on the ground there tonight. him are. >> reporter: hello, to you. this is the second deadliest mass shooting in a school in u.s. history behind sandy hook. we have 21 deceased individuals here at robb elementary school behind us including 19 young children and two teachers. just a horrible, horrible situation here. take a look at this video. this is posted to social media just a short time after the shooting today. it alleges to show the 18-year-old shooter going into the school armed with what appears to be a rifle. police have identified that shooter as an 18-year-old local man, salvador ramos. what we're told is he had a domestic incident beforehand where he shot his grandmother. we're told she's in critical condition tonight. he drove over here to robb elementary school, abandoned
8:02 pm
the vehicle, went into the school and started shooting indiscriminately at children and teachers. take a look at this video. this is showing kids being evacuated from the school. robb elementary services 2nd, 3rd and 4th grade. the children who attend classes here are predominantly 7-year-olds, 8 year-olds, 9-year-olds and 10-year-olds. horrific to think about they experienced today. the big question now is all the parents out there, there are so many wondering are their children ok? there are so many missing children tonight with loved ones waiting to find out information on their little boy is or little girl. are they going to get a phone call that changes their life tonight? some of them haven't heard from their kids since earlier today before they went to school. i want to show you this photo right here, if we can pull up this picture. this is a 10-year-old girl, a 4th grader here at robb elementary school. her name is elijah cruz torres. we spoke to her grandfather
8:03 pm
a short time ago. he provided this photo of her to us. he's worried sick tonight. she is missing. he's not had contact with her since earlier today, and heart wrenchingly, he told us she didn't want to go to school today, but they told her she had to. now he fears she may be amongst the dead. take a listen. >> i hope it's not her. you know, i've been to the hospital and all the victims there, you know, um, they didn't identify my granddaughter. then we went to the civic center here in uvalde where the school bus dropped all the children and she wasn't identified, and they told us that they lifted a 63-year-old woman who passed away and a 10-year-old girl. they won't give any information on. i'm hoping its my granddaughter. >> you were telling me
8:04 pm
earlier your granddaughter didn't feel like going to school today. >> no. that's what one of my daughters told me. >> so she didn't want to go to school. >> she didn't want to go to school. >> what are you hoping right now, sir? i know you love your granddaughter. what are you hoping for? are you hoping for the best? >> i'm hoping she's alive. >> unfortunately that gentleman's experience right now is not unique. there are so many parents, grandparents, loved ones going through the same thing. we spoke to a father earlier tonight whose 10-year-old daughter is also missing. she also attends robb elementary school here. he provided a photo of her to us as well. the texas ranger is hoping they could potentially identify her. he's hoping she's one of the wounded that being is cared for right now. the mayor said two of his staffmembers lost children in this school shooting. this is a small community, only about 15,000 or 16,000 people. what happened here today is going to reverberate across everybody here.
8:05 pm
everybody knows each other. again, unfortunately, we can confirm tonight so far 19 deceased children, two deceased teachers. still several more injured. unfortunately, it's possible that number could go up by the early morning hour. shannon. we'll send it back to you. >> shannon: hard to fathom the level of pain there. thank you for your updates. we'll check back with you. president biden spoke with texas governor greg abbott on the way back from his five-day trip to asia and then addressed the nation about this horrific school shooting tuesday evening. white house correspondent kevin corke detailing what the president had to say tonight. good evening, kevin. >> reporter: evening, shannon. little acknowledgement of the pain and then a pivot to policy by the president, as you point out, after an hour from returning from a trip to asia. he addressed the nation from right here at the white house he implored lawmakers to stand up to the gun lobby after a teen gunman shot 19 school-aged children and two adults at a texas elementary school. >> gun manufacturers spent two decades aggressively
8:06 pm
marking assault weapons which make them the most and largest profit. for god's sake, we have to have the courage to stand up to them. >> reporter: drawing a parallel between the carnage texas and the murderous rampage in buffalo a little more than a week ago. >> i'm sick and tired of it. we have to act, and don't tell me we can't have an impact on this carnage. i spent my career as a senator and a vice president working to pass commonsense gun laws. we can't and won't prevent every tragedy, but we know they work and have positive impact. when we passed the assault weapons ban, shootings went down. >> reporter: meanwhile, former president barack obama added this on twitter, nearly 10 years after sandy hook and 10 days after buffalo, our country is
8:07 pm
paralyzed, not by fear, but by a gun lobby and a political party that have shown no willingness to act in any way that might help prevent these tragedies. the president has also ordered all flags here at the white house and in all federal facilities to be flown at half-staff in honor of the fallen. shannon? >> shannon: kevin corke, thank you so much. we'll check back with you. >> you bet. >> let's bring in special report anchor bret baier now. brett, you've been covering this for hours throughout the day. you saw the president's speech, and this is a tough moment for any president to have to walk through this with the nation, and he addressed the nation tonight, and you heard there were critics that he went way too political too early. >> listen, the president started out as he's done many times before as consoler-in-chief as extending that empathy he knows all too well bearing two of his own children and his former wife. and he does that very well, and started that speech that way and then turned and
8:08 pm
expressed emotion and frustration. now, conservatives and critics of this administration will say that was too much of a turn on this day on this moment for this president to do, but for his supporters and for people who are looking for some change, there is this bubbling frustration that almost 10 years after sandy hook, the only real thing that has changed is we have taught our kids in elementary school how to hide and be quiet and barricade a door and that there hasn't been big change. now, whether you're going to go after the gun lobbyist as the president did today or you're going to say hardened targets, potential targets like schools or empower some kind of different change, it just hasn't happened across the board, and there is a sense that society is better than this. there have been 900 incidents since sandy hook, 27 school shootings just this year. >> shannon: i saw when he went after the gun lobbyists
8:09 pm
and he said we have to have backbone, it's time to stand up and do something, he might enumerate things, pieces of legislation or things he'd want to get done on the hill. i didn't hear anything specific. maybe he felt like it's too soon to go there. there's been various things on the hill that have gone nowhere. that push is going to start. i'd like to hear concrete ideas. >> you're exactly right. if you're going to go that far on this night, well then at least put something out there and say we as bipartisan action could be achieved on this. let's get the background checks or let's get something else in combination with mental health. come up with something like we've had task forces and all kinds of things that really haven't materialized to much. i think a lot of people were looking for more of the consoler, and it was in there, it just wasn't as much as the frustrated president who was vice president during sandy hook. >> and he certainly, as you said, genuinely understands. he absolutely -- he says it
8:10 pm
rips part of your soul away to lose a child, and so i'm sure there'll be many people who will appreciate that part of what he had to say tonight. now as we move forward, tomorrow, i know he'll move an executive order on policing, maybe some of this comes up within that realm of law enforcement, better tools for them, better equipping them. they have horrifically difficult jobs. >> yes, but there's a part of that executive order that's about a list of bad policemen or keeping track of all of the negative things. there's some of that that we have to dig into about how law enforcement is going to receive it, and, you know, for the longest time, i think there was a feeling that law enforcement was not getting the benefit of the doubt a lot of times in these situations. today, law enforcement acted really quickly, and -- and a border patrol tactical team was the ones that took him out, the shooter, otherwise who knows? could have been exponentially worse. it's already the worst school shooting in texas
8:11 pm
history. >> shannon: yeah and a brave individual who didn't wait for backup. eventually, the broader team got there but just to see that somebody -- we asked them to do this every day to walk into these situations and thank god that individual was there. um, tonight, of course, so many things turning political, but already, i see all over twitter people saying, all right, joe manchin, will you lift the filibuster now. the conversation about democrats have the votes. if they do 50+ 1, they don't have 60 on maybe some of the things they're going to propose. he doesn't seem like he's moving off the filibuster. >> i don't think he is. i don't think krysten sinema is, no matter the issue. there was a big push to remove the filibuster the election law that was based on georgia passing its state election law that was called jim crowe 2.0 by president biden and others, stacey abrams and others. today, the first test of that law exponential voting in all districts including african-american, black communities where the voting is up above a presidential
8:12 pm
primary, mitch mcconnell pointed out, had the filibuster been changed for that effort, i mean, imagine looking at this today and saying, wait, for this law, this is what the push is going to be? so i think there's going to be this effort by manchin and others to keep the filibuster, but there'll be pressure to get some kind of bipartisan deal done on guns, mental health, something, securing schools, some action, because we haven't seen it. >> shannon: yeah, i noted today the families of buffalo haven't finished laying folks to rest there. grief across country. questions, more questions than answers tonight. you mentioned politics, we're going to come back to you and talk politics because there's a lot of big primaries and things to cover tonight so thank you for sticking around for that. >> some races still hinging. we'll get the numbers. >> very tight tonight as pennsylvania remains, too. thank you, bret. >> there's emotional reaction on capitol hill tonight to the texas school massacre. chad has that side of the
8:13 pm
story for us. hello, chad. >> reporter: lawmakers shocked at another mass shooting days after the massacre in buffalo. >> there's nothing more evil than violent criminals that target children and especially young children. right now, all of us are just grieving horrifically at yet another act of evil and mass murder. >> reporter: g.o.p. texas senator john cornyn describing the slaughter as unimaginable. chris measure 73 representing new town, connecticut. in 2016, murphy commandeered control of the senate floor for hours to rail against congressional inaction on firearms. now, an emotional murphy pleaded with his colleagues to act. >> what are we doing? why are you here?
8:14 pm
if not to solve a problem as existential as this? this is inevitable. these kids weren't unlucky. nowhere else do little kids go to school thinking they might be shot that day. >> reporter: murphy says uvalde much like new town will ever be the same. murphy worked behind scenes for years to try to broker a compromise on gun control legislation but fell short every time. g.o.p. indiana senator mike braun says senators shouldn't focus on guns but mental health. >> back in indiana, that was probably something on the fedex shooting that didn't work right. we need to refine it and find the commonality and try to go from there. >> reporter: this comes as democrats are trying to launch debate thursday on a bill to prevent domestic terrorism in the aftermath of the buffalo shooting but expect the g.o.p. filibuster. >> can you imagine how they would scream that democrats
8:15 pm
were soft on terrorism and yet they're doing exactly the same things themselves? it's hard to believe. >> reporter: house speaker nanci pelosi says the children killed in the shooting will never experience the joys of graduation, chasing a career of their dreams or falling in love. shannon? >> shannon: chad pergram on the hill, thank you, chad. many more questions than answers surrounding the tragedy at this hour. let's get insight into what law enforcement officials investigating this mass shooting are likely into tonight from former las vegas police lieutenant randy sutton and former tucson, arizona, police officer brandon tatum. gentlemen, thank you, both, for being with us on a very difficult story. >> thanks for having us. >> thanks for having us. >> shannon: ok i want to play something from the president tonight. here's what he said about trying to move forward as bret and i were discuss something type of gun control regulation. >> time for those who have struck delay or blocked the commonsense gun laws we need
8:16 pm
to let you know we will not forget. we can do so much more. we have to do more. >> shannon: ok, you guys are the experts so i put it to you, randy, what more can we, should we be doing on a legislative front, if anything, in your opinion? >> you know, i listened to the hyperbole of the president. this is not the time for it. the investigation needs to be done. we don't know the facts. we need know what the situation was with this shooter. could there have been things put into place which would have shown this to have been happening? are there people that knew? is the social media of this individual something that revealed a threat? there's so much that needs to be known first before we start talking about how we're going to enact more laws. remember, it's against the law to kill someone. if someone is bobbedder
8:17 pm
bound and determined to be a -- if someone is bound and determined to be a shooter like this individual, putting in statutory -- a statute into place is not going to stop him from doing his evil deed and this was about as evil as it comes. >> shannon: yes and there were several, obviously state laws and federal laws violated by this individual in carrying out this heinous, evil attack tonight. media has this report, texas elementary school shooter apparently messaged a woman on instagram about plans for massacre. there are accounts out there that are showing what they say are these messages. they quote them as saying, "i got a little secret." they interviewed a media account before it was taken down by metta. the account posted rifles and a high capacity magazine. brandon, how are we to work this back? did people in his life, his family, teachers, other students, i mean, how do we keep tabs on who really means it when they're making
8:18 pm
these veiled threats or overt threats? >> well, i'm going to start by saying i want to criticize joe biden for a minute here because he's a feckless politician. he's been in office for 40 years and he's done nothing. he was in congress. he was a vice president. he's the president and now he still has no solutions for the people. there are ways that i believe we can work together as a country, as a people to try to mitigate some of these young people who are losing their minds. parents should be aware of what position their children are in. if your kid is a lunatic, you should probably be aware of that and get them the help they deserve, or if you do not, they will turn into killers and go into a school and do the things we saw that this young man had done, so i think there's measures to be put in place. gun laws are not the measure to put in place. i don't know how many times we have to say this the buffalo shooting in new york, they have the strictest gun laws we've seen. chicago, illinois, has the strictest gun laws we've ever seen and they have shootings every weekend. the deal is people are
8:19 pm
struggling in mental health situations. we should be monitoring these individuals. parents should be held accountable for raising their children properly. protect the children in the schools! it's simple. have police officers in the schools. we pay them with the tax dollars. put them in the school and give the teachers the opportunity to be armed. they always hit soft targets! these criminals who do not care about laws who want to go out with a bang, they're going to hit places where people are not armed. there's so many solutions that are outside of adding more laws on the books. >> shannon: and, randy, quick word from you, how worried are you about schools in the so-called soft targets across the country? >> very worried, because you have a shooting like this and you have copycat maniacs that will see this and we know that the number of school shootings has rapidly increased. so when you have another one like this, this is going to be, you know, major media
8:20 pm
attention and other people that are mentally ill that have lost their minds are going to look at this and go maybe i can do this, too. maybe i can beat the record. and so, yes, i am concerned and, you know, texas unfortunately doesn't put police officers in elementary schools. it may be time to rethink that. >> shannon: gentlemen, if you'll stick around, we have much more to cover in our extended coverage. we'll see you again next hour. thank you, both, very much. >> sure, thank you. >> shannon: all right, our ongoing coverage of the shooting in texas and primary night across the country as well continues next. t migraine attacks. u do it all. one dose of ubrelvy, quickly stops migraine in its tracks within 2 hours. do not take with strong cyp3a4 inhibitors. most common side effects were nausea and tiredness. ask about ubrelvy, the anytime, anywhere migraine medicine.

>> shannon: tuesday's school shooting tragedy in texas sure to reignite crucial conversations about the country -- around the country about how to make our schools safer. let's discuss on what we can
8:25 pm
actually do to improve school security with former fbi agent john and the director of national association of school resource officers, mo kennedy. thank you, both, gentlemen, for being with us tonight. >> thank you for having me. >> thank you. >> shannon: here's what we have to. texas attorney general paxton talking about what they do in texas, the proposals for arming people in schools and those kind of conversations. >> we can create access that's difficult to get through. we can potentially arm, prepare and train teachers and other administrators to respond quickly, because the reality is we don't have the resources to have law enforcement at every school. >> shannon: mo, this is your area of expertise. what are the concrete things we can do right now. >> well, we know that we have certainly had situations where school resource officers carefully selected and specifically trained law enforcement officers assigned in schools have actually been able to
8:26 pm
stop acts of school violence when they have occurred. they've even been able to avert them before they've occurred. so we strongly advocate as an association for those carefully selected and specifically trained officers to be present in schools across country. we know they could be a difference maker. >> shannon: yeah, we do know, as one of our guests last segment, said that texas does not have school resource officers in elementary schools, but, john, it seems to me like those little kills kids -- i mean, all of our -- those little kids -- i mean, all of our kids whether 17 or 7, they're vulnerable, but even most vulnerable, these are babies the families have to be grieving. why not have protection there? is it a matter of budget? is it a matter of training? what's your best guess? >> it certainly say matter of budget, and maybe it's a problem of how we look at these issues. in high schools, junior highs, you're more likely to have violent acts. the emphasis has always been
8:27 pm
to have officers in places like that but you're right, the elementary school is the most vulnerable. these kids can't run and hide and certainly not fight back the way high schoolers can do. we need to take a look at it, and at the same time, shannon, all this emphasis on defunding the police, what do you think the first line of resources is to go? it's usually going to be in the schools. we need to revisit all of this. >> shannon: yeah, and, mo, i remember one of the things in that conversation when it was ongoing was this conversation about getting people in uniform out of schools, that it was intimidating to kids and that it was not a good use of police forcing and that they shouldn't be there. there were people who actively argued against getting resource officers into schools and for getting them out of schools. where's that leave us? >> yeah and, shannon, quite frankly, that's nonsense! i became an s.r.o. in 1998 and served the rest of my years of my law enforcement agency as an s.r.o. that's just not true in terms of some of the things that advocates have had to
8:28 pm
say about our men and women that work in schools. they're protectors and they're there to build relationships with students and that means at all levels, k-12. you know, after the sandy hook massacre, which was another horrific day, um, there were many situations where s.r.o.'s were brought into the elementary schools. they could be very effective in those situations, from relationship-building all the way to protecting that school environment and protecting those babies, quite frankly. >> shannon: "new york times" op ed tonight says the left sometimes focuses on gun control which scares off gun owners and leads to more gun sales. a better framing is gun safety or reducing gun violence and using auto safety as a model. constant efforts to make the products safer and to limit access by people who are most likely to misuse them. so, john, do you think there are things that could get bipartisan support that would actually make a difference in these scenarios? >> i think there's certainly a place for certain gun laws
8:29 pm
to keep people from having guns that should never have them, but one of the other issues -- and this has been mentioned before -- is the mental health factor. as we get into this investigation and look at this subject, i'm sure we're going to find warning signs and what is being done on that issue? what do you do with a person when you think they may be a problem but they're over 18 and have certain rights? you can't just commit them against their will. that's the conversation politicians need to have instead of just harping on gun control when we already have lots of laws. but criminals and mentally ill people don't follow the laws. >> shannon: yeah, unfortunately you are right. um, all right, we'll continue this conversation. if you guys will stick around and we'll have an extended conversation on what we can actually do, because i got to think there are a lot of mommas, daddies, care givers kids who are terrified to go back to school tomorrow and we should never, ever let them feel that way. john and mo, thank you, both, very much. >> thank you, shannon. >> thank you.
8:30 pm

everyone remembers the moment they heard... “you have cancer.” how their world stopped and when they found a way to face it. for some, this is where their keytruda story begins. keytruda - a breakthrough immunotherapy that may treat certain cancers. one of those cancers is advanced nonsquamous, non-small cell lung cancer where keytruda is approved to be used with certain chemotherapies

8:34 pm
of cancer keytruda is approved to treat at, and ask your doctor if keytruda can be part of your story. >> shannon: at least 19 children and two teachers murdered in an elementary school in uvalde, texas. chief breaking news correspondent trace gallagher has been tracking developments since this broke tuesday afternoon. what's the latest, trace? >> reporter: the numbers are horrifying. police, investigators and journalists are now scouring social media footprints, especially that of the shooter, 18-year-old salvador ramos and we've also found several postings that match his name, his description including pictures of weapons, messages to a few young women that appear to indicate he was planning something nefarious, although we won't show you those posts because we've not yet confirmed they are from the shooter. and listen to what texas democratic state senator roland gutierrez said about the shooter. watch. >> unfortunately, on his
8:35 pm
18th birthday, he bought those two assault rifles that you've been talking about. they are assault rifles. so first thing he did when he turned 18, just sometime ago. >> reporter: except there's no confirmation ramos used assault rifles. in fact, texas governor greg abbott said the shooter used a rifle and a handgun. you should note when you're in texas, you can buy a long gun when you're at 18 from a private citizen in texas. fox's bill melugin who is on the scene in texas is reporting when the shooter ran into the school -- and you can see that video right here if we can put that up where he actually is carrying a rifle -- he was followed by an elite border patrol agent who went in with a police tactical team and shot and killed salvador ramos. apparently, ramos was wearing body armor and hiding behind a barrier, right? the border agent was also
8:36 pm
injured in the leg, but it's unclear if that was by a gunshot wound or shrapnel, but he was able to walk out of the school under his own power and finally, we should note, you saw the numbers, 19 children, two adults. this is now the second deadliest primary school shooting in u.s. history. you'll recall when adam lanza opened fire at sandy hook elementary school in newtown, connecticut, he killed 26 and 7-year-olds and 6 adults. shannon? >> shannon: words aren't adequate. trace, thank you very much. >> reporter: yep. >> shannon: our breaking coverage will continue next.
8:37 pm
8:38 pm
8:39 pm
8:40 pm
>> i'm confused and worried. i'm trying to find out where my baby's at. >> seeing all of these parents with their loved ones and some of them -- you know, some of them made it some of them didn't make it and, it's terrifying! >> shannon: heartbreak out of texas tonight where 19 children and two teachers
8:41 pm
have been killed in one of the deadliest school shootings in our country's history. we're continuing to monitor that developing story, but we're also talking politics tonight. there are key primaries. we're joined once again by bret baier, chief political anchor and host of "special report." bret, against the backdrop of this terrible tragedy, we're monitoring the other big story of the night. out of texas, it's primary tonight and hotly-contested races there. we leave it to you in the big boards and start in texas. >> the board and i have had some discussions and we've worked together. we're now -- >> shannon: an understanding. an understanding now. >> we have simpatico. we'll take you to texas, congressional district 28. it's between cuellar and cisneros. cisneros is the progressive backed by aoc, the squad. you can see cisneros has the slight lead, i mean, just 400 votes, less than 400 votes. fewer than 400 votes this district is right here and
8:42 pm
kind of goes along the border counties here along mexico and kind of shoots up south of san antonio. now, just looking at the vote that's still out, you can see 90%s. there are still counties, accept padda county, some of -- cepada county and some in loredo that he'll likely pick up votes. how many votes? maybe enough to pull this off which would be a big win for henry cuellar, a moderate. he's the last pro-life democrat, i think, in the house, and, um, this is a battle worth watching. >> shannon: i got to think about as you and i talked about in the commercial, the republicans would much rather line up with
8:43 pm
cisneros. there'd be a smaller contrast for them. >> in the border counties, the hispanic communities, the progression -- progressivism is 80/20 for cuellar: if you want to talk about tonight in georgia, it's essentially the establishment fights back. look at the incumbent governor kemp. this is just a total blowout. former senator david purdue endorsed by former president trump said this week that we may lose, but we're not going to lose by 30. no, he's not. he's going to lose by 50 in the state of georgia. not only that, but the secretary of state, brad, has won outright in the state of georgia. he was really targeted by the former president, jodi heiss.
8:44 pm
next door in alabama, kay i havely looks to get over 50% -- ivey looks to get over 50%. that's a big deal. back to georgia, hershel walker just runaway in that race. now, it appears in alabama there is going to be a runoff. katie britt, former chief of staff for senator shelby and mo brooks who former president trump removed his endorsement about a month ago, it looks like there's going to be a runoff between the two of them. she is likely not going to get to 50%, but we'll track it very closely. and obviously, you still have this big -- this big number right here. it's still up for grabs. >> shannon: tighter and tighter. >> 968 votes. you're seeing all of these counties in pennsylvania
8:45 pm
finishing their canvassing. there are a few, we're told, provisional ballots. some dozens of military ballots, but the universe of ballots out there does not seem like mccormick could pick up the votes to close that gap. now, it's within the .5% automatic recount which means that should mccormick not concede, it does go forward to that recount, but there have been six statewide recounts in the state of pennsylvania, and three of them, the opponent said don't do it, don't spend the money. the other three increased the lead of the person going in, so legal, you know, challenges aside, we could have numbers, you know, the recount will start june 1st, but it could be done by the first week of june. >> shannon: yeah, i think that is the deadline. all right, kudos to you and your board tonight. >> nicely done! >> >> shannon: tonight, flawless. we loved it we'll see you for some more. >> ok. >> shannon: thank you. our breaking coverage of the

out-of-state corporations wrote without talking an online sports betting plan they call "solutions for the homeless". really? the corporations take 90 percent of the profits. and using loopholes they wrote, they'd take even more. the corporations' own promotional costs, like free bets, taken from the homeless funds. and they'd get a refund on their $100 million license fee, taken from homeless funds, too.
8:49 pm
these guys didn't write a plan for the homeless. they wrote it for themselves. >> results are in for the big g.o.p. georgia primary election for governor where former president trump's
8:50 pm
favorites, former senator david perdue, got walloped by the incumbent kemp. what's the mood, mark, from kemp's headquarters tonight? >> reporter: the news is republican governor brian kemp easily defeated his main primary challenger from david perdue. this is a race that certainly attracted a lot of national attention because it was former president trump that was encouraging republicans to get rid of governor kemp. that was not the case tonight. what was fascinating also about this race is what the issues were that these candidates were focusing on. perdue spent much of his campaign focusing on the 2020 election, embracing trump's claims of voter fraud and he came up far short tonight, however, perdue says he's still eager to support kemp to make sure he stays in the governor's mansion. >> you're going to hear me going to work from brian kemp to make damn sure that stacey. [indiscernible] will never become the governor of georgia. >> reporter: while we've also heard from governor kemp shortly after the results came in tonight.
8:51 pm
he's already starting to pivot his rice to what is going to be -- his race to what is going to be coming in november against stacey abrams. this is a race a lot of people will be paying attention to. a lot of money will likely be spent. we heard from the governor today. he's ready to make it clear this race is going to be all he's going to put his efforts into. >> i want to be crystal clear with all of you here tonight. our battle is far from over. tonight, tonight, the fight for the soul of our fate is to make sure that stacey abrams is not our next governor or our next president. >> reporter: another reh race we'refollowing is hershel r easily defeated another republicans running in the primary. that's another race both parties are expected to pour a lot of time, money and tears into as they get ready to see if georgia will stay blue as it was in 2020 or shift back red.
8:52 pm
it's a clear big night for governor kemp as he was able to overcome this primary challenge. shannon? >> shannon: mark meredith on the political beat for us tonight. thank you, mark. back to our top story, the horrific mass shooting in an elementary school in uvalde, texas. at last check, 19 children and two adults killed in a terrible tragedy that could certainly shake your faith, if you have faith. let's discuss how you deal with such unspeakable violence with senior pastor greg laurie from the harvest christian fellowship in southern california. i thought of you today because of your calming, wise advice but also because you have walked this path of losing a child. what do we do with this pain tonight? >> what we have to do in a time like this is call on god. the first question that comes to our mind is why did god let this happen? i think we should pivot instead to the what as in
8:53 pm
what should i do? and more specifically who should i turn to? the answer is god himself. the bible says he's the god of all comfort, and, yes, our son, christopher, died 14 years ago in an automobile accident. when i heard that news, it was like time stood still and all the air was sucked out of the room, and i thought like i could literally die. but it was in that hour of despair i called on to god, and he was there for me. and i would say this if there's any of the parents or families of these little children who died in this horrible massacre, i would say to you these children are safely in the arms of jesus in heaven. and if you put your faith in jesus, you will see them again. i know that doesn't take away the pain and the heartache, but it's just something that's really important to remember that they're with the lord. and this is the hope a christian has, because life doesn't end at death. life continues on and for us
8:54 pm
who believe in jesus, the after life is the presence of the lord and reunion with loved ones who have preceded us who died in faith. >> shannon: i was reading today about the funerals still ongoing in buffalo and one of the funerals yesterday and those people, too, um, many of them, great people of faith, people who volunteered at churches and at food banks and cared for other people, they were vulnerable, just like these kids today, defenseless. and it's just hard for us to wrap our heads around how these communities begin to even think about healing and having some sense of normalcy in a place where you just have been devastated by the worst possible scenario. >> you just have to cry, shannon. that's the most important thing. the depth of your sorrow is an indication of the depth of your love. i think sometimes people bottle grief up or try to ignore it, but you need let it out, and specifically cry
8:55 pm
out to god. the -- it was scrolled, yeah though i walk through the shadow of the death, i will fear it -- christianity is not a crutch. it's a whole hospital. and it's for us who need god. the bottom line is all of us need god. i pray that all of us in america will be praying for those families who have lost their precious loved ones that could never be replaced. and that we pray for our nation that we have a spiritual awakening, that we turn back to god again. it's not a time to take shots at each other. this is a time to come together and bring comfort to these people and also to thank god for your own families, your own children. pull them a little closer and be thankful that they're with you. >> shannon: yeah and if there are those we need to
8:56 pm
