"From District number nine he is Robert Pittenger. Good morning, sir. Good morning, Bo have you doing I'm doing OK, I hope you are and ah lot to talk about and first and foremost, I would remind people Congressman that you when you were in office, One of the things you did as a U s Congressman and was you'd shared the congressional task force on terrorism and unconventional warfare. And ah had always had a particular interest, and I know you still do in foreign policy issues. The third presidential debate is traditionally Focused on foreign policy. I'm wondering, given the circumstances leading up to this one. And the fact that there wasn't a second debate. Do you think that's gonna hold true on Thursday night? I hope so. I have heard some discussion that they were gonna not have foreign policy is part of the format. They'd be very disturbing. It's critical issue. Teo are national security and, in fact, the greatest one The great strengths of President Trump. Now we have enormous adversaries with China, Iran and North Korean Russian, No president's been stronger. In terms of sanctions of policies against these countries. And I have worked closely with the administration. Of course, when my bill that I did to protect her Industries that were technology driven that provided US major national security. Capacity from the Chinese from buying these companies. Passing the corner. Let this bill in the Senate have it is in the house, and we of course, passed it. The president signed it. So the most significant of all we've done to protect our national security. Sure I'm a fool. Believer in the present, and I think he's been a strong leader to protect us well, like I said, you're going to be part of our election coverage, and I'm thankful for that. You bring a lot of experience and perspective. S so now that you're in the quarterback, the armchair quarterbacking role to a degree as you look at this presidential race. How do you handicap it right now? How do you think? I mean, you see the polls that they don't look good for President Trump, although they didn't look good necessarily four years ago, either. Well, when you look at the issues on, thankfully, the president really focused on what he's accomplished, with speeches asking give of the last few days, which has been enormous. Nothing has ever compared with this president done from an economic point of view, his rising standard of living for every class of individual and in this country, five million people have come out of poverty. Every minority group has raised its economic little We look at our national security where we've been or Bill rebuilt. Our military strongman has ever been In the history of this country, and we are allies now for supporting us. You know, I'm on the phone with ambassadors every day working on my Ah, parliamentarian tells of security form in the acknowledge and appreciate A leadership, the president and all of our telling me now, particularly Europe. Yes, we're we're coming up to meet our standards on our military spending for NATO. So the president has enormous respect and national world. Of course, I'm very strongly pro life President been the most pro like President Han. So I think when you buy for Kate, some people have a problem with his personality. You and you buy for Kate. Personality from the policies. Hey, wins totally. And I hope that people will have a clear mind and clear thinking because we're facing today. The greatest challenge I believe we've ever had. It is not an overstatement to say this is a battle for our soul there. Those who want to restructure our entire government of these air Marxists. So you know, the black lives matter. Movement originated from a Marxist. Patrice Cullors came out the Marxist movement. She was trained by Eric Mon man who was one of the dedicated people with weathermen underground. SD s back in the sixties. And they're holding tent was to overthrow this country. So I have supported minority interests and, frankly, the lives of the inner city poor. All my life for 50 years going back since the Watson 19 sixties. I want to make sure in about 45 seconds left that I have want to get your take on another race. What about Cal Cunningham right now? Will cash be easily defeated. I hope that Tom to us prevails. Tom needs to make a more clear presentation of what he stands for. And May we vote for people because They get out there and they fight. They're fighters, and Tom is not yet displayed that we need Jesse Helms. We need Donald Trump's You go to vote for people because You believe that? They're going to come back home. They're going to fight for you. And Tom has not yet conveyed that fighting spirit that makes you want to go to the polls of all foreign He should easily defeat coming him in light of, uh, what's come out of the realities of these sexting messages. It's really very sad. He should you're saying But do you think he will? Based on the polls? You're saying? Are you worried about this race from a Republican standpoint? I'm totally worried. The last poll I saw show coming up and you know that's incredible to me. It's unbelievable. Tell us should win his hands over and the fact that you're not It needs to be some careful introspection. Bye bye, Tom. Why not right? We're going to stop there against the clock. You understand how that works, But I look forward to talking to you, Moore, and I appreciate you calling in this morning. Yes. Good to talk to you. There is Congressman Robert Pittenger joining us here on W beauty and know that the polls have looked good for Cal Cunningham all along. Although we know that what's happened off the campaign trail has Change this whole race. We'll see If Galle cutting him can still cash in on those numbers. We'll see.

"Vo Thompson the one hundred sixteenth congress sworn in yesterday. Yesterday morning. Final hours. Being a congressman at least for now. For Robert pittenger. Join me yesterday on WBZ talking about his thoughts heading into those final moments. Hey, I'm doing. All right. How are you doing today? What are you thinking about as the last few hours here of of your term in congress? Gratitude. Love serving the people had the greatest staff in the world. Emails wrote them all last night. Just a big psyche. They worked so hard for the constituents tonight district, and I'm just really proud of them. So the first time I ever talked to you when you were just being sworn in as a congressman back in two thousand thirteen the first time, I had you on the show the big story out of Washington was the fiscal cliff. I remember saying to you what you talking about a trial by fire or jumping right into the fire here. And now, you leave Washington, and the government has been shut down for a couple of weeks here. What do you remember about those thoughts, then as you entered office? And what are your thoughts about leaving Washington? Now. The big sausage factory. If there, isn't it? Hard to come up with the people who just think logically. It's not that complicated. I wish to heck rose all of us who have been in positions of power. Thank in ways of what just makes sense. You know, politics is a strange, business and personalities and egos. Thanks to. The pot too much. And it's just it's very unfortunate. You've talked a lot about Nancy Pelosi over the years, and our conversations here, of course, twelve noon today, Nancy Pelosi takes over again, what are your thoughts on that? Van she has a very disciplined manner ours. Were constructive. Our leadership was they they allow people to speak out and to. Unfortunately, so McCain some. Power that kept us from passing things like healthcare and immigration salon. We could pass those. But there's some folks one group that loves the camera more than they loved getting things done. With our own caucus it from passing some great legislation. Talking to congressman Robert pittenger here on WBZ's morning news, three terms in congress. And that the third term ends later today. I want to get back to the legacy, and what you leave behind here in a moment. But I got focus for a second on what's happening in the the district that you're leaving. And usually you're you're either continuing or you're passing passing the baton to someone else in this case there is no one yet because the election hasn't been certified. I was really surprised when I heard earlier this week that you have no interest in running in another election should that opportunity. Come your way. And I say that because you know, Dan, mccready lost by nine hundred five votes. You lost by eight hundred twenty eight votes. So I always kind of figured that. If if there ended up being another primary, then you'd be very interested. But you're not why is that. I was probably the favorite guy. I understand that. And the numbers look good for me. And frankly, I've got great depth fat in the district. I've got a lot of work out east. Fledged or the Lumbini Indians with so many other issues. Great sport. Democrats. You know, I worked real hard on security issues. We have continued major threats in our country. Twelve parliamentary international forums here and South America, and Europe and other places and bring together already about eight hundred members facials from eighty countries, we're dealing with characters of finance and cybersecurity. Tells us sharing predatory foreign investments those things that are critical to have strong collaboration on it. I'm gonna be continuing that we have our effort will go forward. Security form next week. I'll be in. Paraguay? March in Israel, and in may, Togo and Africa. With these regional forums to bring together, the experts in.

"Looks to Harris spoke to reporters this morning in Raleigh after he spent a couple of hours with investigators from the state board of elections. Those investigators are trying to determine if there was cheating in blatant county by a man named McRae. Dallas. He's at the center of all this Mark Harris higher Dallas because he was known as kind of a wizard in bladen county when it comes to getting people out to vote and helping candidates win. Dallas's mission was to knock on doors and get people to vote for Harris using absentee ballots. But there are concerns Dallas broke the law by collecting absentee ballots rather than letting voters may allow him. He's also accused of throwing some ballots in the trash Andy illegally filling out the paperwork on others. There is no question that thanks to Dallas his work. Mark Harris won the absentee vote. In bladen county by a couple of hundred votes. But Harris's adamant that he had no reason to suspect. Dallas was shady last week. Harris told me how he came to hire the guy I hired McRae. Dallas because of two things one he had proven success because he beat me in two thousand sixteen right? And there was no indication or sign if I'd thought he had done something legal twenty sixteen. I would have protested. I mean, why in the world would I have waited to run and put my life through all of this two years later, I would have protested. So he had beaten me was number one. And number two, the elected officials that were vouching for him. But outgoing Republican congressman Robert pittenger of Charlotte who lost in the primary to Mark Harris, basically calls McRae. Dallas a crook bad dog heard about him. He's he's back there flick opportunities political prostitute, whatever you wanna call him, but he'll work with anybody. He just show me. The money and I spent several minutes with him. Maybe five and he told me his pay for play program. And I said, no, thanks. I'm glad that they're going after him and saddened that other people. Took up at the time. And then play this game with him. Shouldn't have been done. He's he's not the type of person we need to have evolved in. Straight for political campaigning. So Robert pittenger on WBZ morning news throwing shade on both McRae. Dallas and Mark Harris. So what happens now who knows Harris says he's in no man's land. That's because the state board of elections is technically out of business. A new board has to be appointed later this month. That's why Harris is asking a judge to step in and declare him the winner if that doesn't happen. There could end up being a new election. So a lot of uncertainty at the moment, but Mark Harris, his attorney both say they'll continue to cooperate with investigators and Harris says voters should not think the election in the ninth district was crooked. Well, we think there should be no reason to doubt the legitimacy of the outcome. Because again, there's an investigation that's been going on now for weeks. Into what may or may not have occurred in the ninth.

"State board of elections that all of a sudden drop this on our lap after no election protest was filed after Mr McCreevy conceded the election after no recount was called for and after all of the local boards of elections certified the race. We have never seen that made a second though. Didn't surf I can just if I can just finish this one point. I will let you and at the same time. The state is engaged in a very difficult negotiation fight over the control of the board of elections. And so and so the board of elections it's walking out the door simply comes out and says they're not going to certify and at that time really don't say why. Okay. And then of course, be suspicious. Mean let's put that to the side. And I hear you. But you're asking me about what I said, I think you have to put it in that context. Let me give you some more context. Right. Because as we look at this. It seems like there were some real red flags, and it seems to me like the North Carolina Republican party failed its own Republican candidate Robert pittenger, the incumbent congressional Republican. These are the bladen county mail an absentee ballots for that primer race this year. Mark Harris, four hundred thirty seven having hired the man in question McRae doubtless apparently to do the same scheme over Robert pittenger, who's sitting incumbent now you and I both know those numbers make no sense. And there's reporting today that Robert pittenger's people talk to you personally and to people from the NRC complaining about shenanigans. And nothing was done is that true. I've tried. I've been trying to recall that it might have been if I can offer some context in the Republican party rules prevent us from being involved in a primary we often get complaints about people who don't like what happened in their primary races. And perhaps we should have paid a little more attention, I'll plead guilty to that. But here's what I would say. The only thing we could have done is called state and federal investigators and the board of elections, which already knew and had been a part of this for you know, it'd been investigating this for a decade and haven't but got their hands around it. That's all we could have done. And quite frankly, I looked at the overall vote numbers and blatant county. And I saw that Mr. Harris one I didn't look at the absentee numbers. We don't usually question. The they I get into. I know and believe me if I was sitting your position that that stinks. Beep something happened under your nose, but you did fail. Mr. pittenger, didn't you? I mean, he was incumbent member of. Congress. He's a Republican. He lost to this challenger. And it appears that he lost partly because of a vote padding from an illegal votes scheme. The fact that Mr. pittenger is an incumbent member of congress, of course, to the Republican party rules. He is a candidate like other, and if we failed Mr. pittenger his advisors failed him because he did not file an election protests. I mean, what what were we to have done when the own candidate doesn't file the protest? I mean, there is a process for things. And look look we're as horrified by that is anybody. But I do think it's important that the people that that committed the acts are the ones that need to serve the second term of the Pinson ministration in jail, they need to be punished. And I am appreciative of the media. And you for putting sunlight that this. It is clear. It is clear, Mr. Hayes. There has been a systematic failure in the state of North Carolina. A me among Republican governors democrat governors and board of elections going on back a decade to stop this. I let me let me stop you there. Because I want to sort of maybe argue on the other side for a moment. It does seem there are some persistent irregularities in bladen. Some persistent regulators in Robinson. I think we might see some more things come to light..
