In the meantime, we've got a lot to get to tonight while you were polishing off that second helping of Turkey. The breaking news have been piling up faster than thanksgiving leftovers. Thanks in large part to special counsel, Robert Muller shortly before we took the air tonight, the famously radio silent Muller team dropped a bombshell about the president's campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, I'll have more on that in just a moment. We're also following another breaking headline this one out of Mississippi. President Trump is on the ground there. Now, he's about to hold his second rally today for Republican Senator Cindy, Hyde Smith who faces off against democrat, Mike Espy in a runoff election. Tomorrow a runoff that has at times felt like an out of body experience in terms of how many times it made you shake? Your head and say did that really happen? Whether it was the Republican candidate saying that she'd be in the front row of a public hanging or the Republican candidates robotic almost comical non apology for those offensive remarks or her debate performance in which she seemed to say her greatest selling point is Donald Trump is if all of that weren't surreal enough today on the eve of the runoff.

"Speaking about the issue. A lot of people that we've talked to across the state that are concerned about your remarks, and what you were apologizing for. Senator why not speak to this issue? Your comments offended, a great number of people know, you haven't wondering what what is it? They were apologizing for Senator you stood inside of Jefferson Davis. Davis said that this is Mississippi history at its best Senator what did you mean by that sanding inside of Jefferson Davis house in saying that Senator this third? You're right. But Senator you're running to be the US Senator of the United States Senator Senator you're running to the US Senator why not talk about race. It looks like Republican Senator Cindy Hyde Smith has figured finally out a strategy for success in the runoff election. Tomorrow stop talking around cameras in the last few weeks, Hyde Smith has been caught on tape saying she would enthusiastically attendee public hanging with rivers and that Mississippi should make it more difficult for quote, some folks to vote she said these things while running for office in a state that had more lynchings and any other state in the union state that has systematically disenfranchised black voters including today. A state that still flies a flag with the confederate emblem Senator Hyde Smith said these things while running against democrat, Mike Espy who's looking to become the state's first black Senator since reconstruction. The president is in Mississippi right now doing two different rallies in support of heights. Smith just hours before he arrived seven nooses were found hanging outside the Mississippi State capitol with signs reading, quote, we need someone who respects the lives of Lynch victims were hanging nooses to remind people that times haven't changed talk more about the Senate campaign. I'm joined by Matt visor, national political. The Washington Post who's in Mississippi covering the race. What does it look like down there? It's lively we're here at Mike Espy's event on election eve as gospel choirs ministers, kind of rallying a largely black crowd, which is a lot different from President Trump and the crowds. He's been rallying today at twin rallies in the north part of the state, and he's about to be in Biloxi in the southern part of the state. Obviously, Mississippi is a place that is riven by its racial history. The history of slavery plantation confederacy, the civil rights movement. It is a state with the highest percentage of African American residents. And now, this is all been front and center. I wonder what your sense of reaction to the sin Crowley of this race and the states racial history has been in the campaign. It is absolutely the driving issue of this campaign. I mean that one remark and deeper explorations into semi height Smits history of supporting the confederacy has really shaken up. This race people are very tuned-in. It's it's helped energize black voters, which as you point out the highest percentage of any state in the nation in Mississippi. So I think that is a key part of tomorrow's vote is how big the turnout is along the delta along the areas where we're traditionally black voters live, but also don't often vote. So I think that is a very key factor for tomorrow. And if they can drive out the turn out Cindy Smith is running a campaign very much linked to President Trump. She mentioned him all the time. And that's what she's hoping that he can drag her cost finish on. Do. You feel easy drag. Finish line. I mean my perception from watching this race remotely is that she's not doing so great not run a great campaign. And it takes a lot to lose the Republican statewide candidate Mississippi. So she's got a lot of padding. But is that is that your sense there while being there covering it? Exactly, the state Republican party sent out a campaign Mailer that arrived in mailboxes. It had President Trump's image on it. It had President Trump's name on it. It did not mention Cindy heights at all really. It's encouraging people to vote. Yes. Encouraging people to vote but not mentioning the candidate to vote for. So I think there is widespread recognition among Republicans that she is not running good campaign has been a good candidate. And this race should not be as tight as it. As it is. They still think that she probably wins just because of the political dynamics of this state. But I think Republicans privately will acknowledge that she has not been a very good candidate. Yeah..

And with us from Arlington. Virginia is your Michel cinder? She's PBS NewsHour White House. Correspondent yummy. Welcome back to on point. Thanks for having me. So let's start with you. There is the Senate race taking place in Mississippi. It's pitting an appointed Senator Cindy, Hyde Smith against a former agriculture secretary and congressman Mike Espy. What should we expect from that race? I think it's going to be close mainly because the Republican the race has had a a we'll say bumpy road. She was she was filmed joking. She says about voter suppression in joking that it would be may be better. If some people didn't have the right to vote. She also got in trouble because she said that she would go to a public hanging with someone in. And that again was something that she said was joke, but the people took very much offense to and those. Two things have have started people digging into her past past talking about her ties to possible confederacy sympathies ties to a possibly having gone to school at us separation or segregation academy, and what you have is the democrat, which is what Democrats do in almost every state is really trying to turn out the African American vote turnout kind of young suburban white voters to try to see if they can overcome this this this big margin. Where Republicans, of course, have the have the natural Han upper-hand there. So I think it'll be interesting to see the president's gonna go down. And I think as he always does he doesn't shy away from controversial topics. So I think he's probably going to be talking a little bit about what her gaffes might mean. And that people are taking it too seriously. But when he went down in Florida when there was a race there for governor. He was able to close it in a in a race that people thought wasn't going to be that close. So I feel as though the Republican in this race probably has the better foot. Right now. Michael Crowley, you know, each one of these, you know, stumbles these gaffes turns out to hinge on the question of race and of America's perhaps the most painful history in some ways. Is there any way in state, which is so conservative that Mike Espy himself an African American as well as a democrat could emerge within that margin of error could emerge actually contending for the seat..

She's been only Republicans since two thousand ten sure she served a believe three terms in the state legislature as a democrat.

"Today brought a rare public rebuke of the president from the chief Justice of the supreme court. John Roberts Roberts was responding to a comment the president made yesterday after judge tiger of the ninth circuit put a temporary hold on a Trump administration plan to refuse asylum applications to people who cross the border outside ports of entry ruling that Trump cannot unilaterally rewrite the immigration laws. Well, you go to the ninth circuit. And it's a disgrace that I'm going to put it in a major complaint because you cannot win if you're us a case in the ninth circuit, this was an Obama judge. And I'll tell you what it's not gonna happen like this anymore. Chief Justice Roberts took issue with Trump suggestion that the judge was biased because he was appointed. By Barack Obama Roberts telling me AP, we do not have Obama judges or Trump judges Bush judges of Clinton judges what we have is an extraordinary group of dedicated judges doing their level best. That was pretty remarkable. That's not normally the kind of thing that a supreme court Justice does and a president, of course, naturally then attacked back now in a sense Roberts is absolutely right. That the reason the Trump administration keeps losing in court over and over and humiliating fashion is not because of political animists. It's because the administration keeps trying to do flagrantly lawless things that judges across the ideological spectrum have no tolerance for what? If there were really, no such thing as Trump judges. Then ask yourself this. Why on earth is Mitch McConnell so intent on failing new judiciary with as many of them as possible. There's only one Senate race left in the nation. I promise in the runoff election in Mississippi set for next Tuesday between the combination appointed Republican Senator Cindy, Hyde Smith and the challenger former democratic congressman and secretary of agriculture Mike Espy now this was supposed to be a pretty easy race for Hyde.

She was caught on camera saying, it's a great idea to make it harder for liberal folks to vote she was found to have posed a confederate soldiers hat holding a gun, and she made this really unbelievable comment in a state where more than six hundred black people were killed lynchings more than in any other state..

"And then you recount them, and they might affirm that election now, the actually the margin shrank somewhat between the machinery count and the manual recount went down to about ten thousand votes, but still in favor of Rick Scott the Republican in the Senate race and then in the race for governor Ron to Santa's one beating Andrew gillum Andrew gillum conceded for a second time much different response from Gillam than Abrahams. That's true. And part of that you could speak to the fact though that I think can being the secretary of state and this being just this highly contentious issue around voting rights, we saw in Georgia more than we saw in in Florida in part just because of who Brian Kemp was during the entire election process. I think also there's like a different political calculation that Abrahams is making then Gillam is making. I think both of them believe that they will continue to have a future in politics. But I think they were approaching the. The resolution of this election in different ways. That's true. And look now with Rick Scott's victory. This is going to be I believe the fourth Senate seat, right? That Republicans have flipped in this election cycle. I mean, they they've only netted two seats because Democrats actually won't erase Zona Nevada. But I mean, Florida was a big win for Republicans. I think that many Democrats early on did seem to feel a little bit more positive about their prospects in in Florida. Yeah, I think that's part of why so many Democrats on election night were so disappointed because one Florida's Florida, right? So it's always a fifty fifty state. It's an important bellwether state in the rest of the country. But also because the polls had shown Andrew gillum doing so much better than he wound up doing the narrative going into election day was that Andrew gillum doing well might actually pull Bill Nelson over the line democratic Senator. And in fact, you know, Nelson of doing better than gillum and one of the things that I do think is an important takeaway that maybe Republicans and other states might be wanting to pay attention. As they move into twenty twenty is that the margin between Republicans and Democrats when you look at the Hispanic vote was really tight I wanna say Rhonda's Santa's got like forty four percent of Latino voters. I mean, you're talking about like, George W Bush. I wonder if that's Rick Scott related because he did so much work to try to pull up a Latinos federally Puerto Ricans where he really split with President Trump on the response to hurricane Maria. Exactly. And the other thing I was just on the phone with an analyst down in Florida. He pointed to the fact that Rhonda Santa's had this Cuban-American running mate. And oftentimes, we think running mates don't matter. But in this particular case, it may have because we actually did see you get that name on a line. And you see numbers definitely go up. Sometimes. Well, so one might think that with this conversation the election is over. But this election cycle is not yet done not done yet. There will be a Senate runoff election in Mississippi on November twenty seventh that is the Tuesday after thanksgiving it is in Mississippi. A runoff in the Senate race there. It was in theory supposed to be very easy Republican win Dominica. Does it still look that way?

There we go with the ad commissioners. Again, former member of the Mississippi State Senate now, here's the thing about her. She's well known obviously statewide would there have been a couple of controversies since the election that she's had to deal with that have appeared to benefit the democrat in the race.

Well, that is now the lasting impression that the world has of Georgia state with a booming economy and a growing population, a thriving music film and television industry, a southern state that was seat is moving forward, but which now's reputation for moving decisively backward. It could be the same story in Florida. Where pressure is mounting for democrat. Andrew gillum to concede in his close. Race for Florida governor against Republican Ron Santa's who opened his gubernatorial campaign like this. The last thing we need to do is to monkey this by trying to embrace a socialist agenda with huge tax increases and bankrupting the state democratic incumbent Bill Nelson is also fighting for every vote to be counted in Florida during a mandatory recount hoping to keep his Senate seat out of the hands of current Florida.

"It can also look at at Bush versus core where if it comes down to the supreme court making decisions about when to stop counts which ballots to allow, you know, that's part of what the whole Cavanaugh thing was about was that you have this politicized supreme court as well. So I think it's much doubt as you can. So if you can push things to the supreme court, I think they probably feel pretty confident that they'll prevail. I mean, they'd have to get it out of Florida. I I guess to get to court which doesn't seem like it's going to happen. But what's going on in Georgia, by the way, Susan much the same? So right now, we have the three big outstanding races is AirAsia ONA Senate, which ones actually resolving pretty much smoothly, which we'll get back to. But in Georgia and Florida, it's the Georgia. It's the governor's race. And in Florida, it's a Senate and the governor's race in. There's Juki pushback against the Republican. Candidate in Arizona because she is refusing to this whole it's a fraud. It's a forgery. It's a rigged election. Can't go on her. Well, she's probably going to be the one way or the other. Yeah, she has. No. I mean, I hopefully she also wouldn't do us anyway. But she personally has very little reason to do this to attack institutions that she wants to rely on later on. I thought she's not ahead though, shoes. So John Kyle was the person who was put into McCain seed after he died and Kyle's pretty clearly just a placeholder. So the thought is that he'll step down. Then MC salad will be put in his his seat. Then she'll be up for a special election. I think at twenty twenty. So she she wouldn't either way. Yeah. Okay. Got it. We now have one campaign where this whole irresponsible claim election fraud isn't happening even those basically same setup as it's going on right now in Florida and Georgia. Well, I mean this being disingenuous is like nothing new at this point. This is like I feel like we're we're now this is definitely the whole frog boiling scenario thing where we are not reacting to an outright attack on our Billy to function as a democracy. I mean, we're just assuming I was gonna Trump, but not gonna nor it twenty percent of people fully believe Trump is saying right now that's a crisis. What about other kinds of election irregularities? We worried about I don't think there's any evidence of any kind of foreign interference this time of any kind of like breeches with although on election day. You know, there were there were some reports of like, it regularities machines, and this and that I don't think I need that sussed out. Right. Nothing this something it's it's been a purely domestic shit show. Okay. Well, I mean. It's ridiculous. But I still feel a little bit of a measure of relief that there isn't evidence of that kind of stuff either. So I wanted to talk about eight oh, the bottom just well, you never have bought him. When it comes to GOP wanna talk about this video service. The other day there's an upcoming Senate runoff in Mississippi video surface of US Senator actual Senator Cindy Hyde Smith who faces a run-off right now against an African American opponent.

"Is that Justice weekend? Senator Cindy, Hyde Smith said at a rally she said if he invited me to a public hanging. I'd be on the front row, and everybody's like who makes lynching jokes bat is sorry. What like who in Mississippi, no less with a black upon who says that so she's her her response was I refer to accepting an invitation to a speaking engagement in referencing the one who invited me I use an exaggerated expression of regard and any attempt to turn this into a negative. Connotation is ridiculous. So needless to say Cindy Hyde. Smith needs lose we support Mike Espy, and please check out Mike Espy's campaign page so that we can get him to win. Now. SPN Highsmith both received forty one percent of the vote went election day, which is why they have a runoff on November twenty seventh. I think this is a reminder that we should never leave anything off the table, right? That maybe some of us heard of Mike Espy, but just figured a democrat and a black man democrat at that was not going to win a statewide election in Mississippi. Maybe we just didn't see Mississippi as a place where a Blue Wave or a black wave could take place. Maybe frankly, we just have not been paying enough attention to the domestic south, let alone the global south to be having conversations about what is possible in the deep south and in a state like like, Mississippi, so I wanna go pay more attention to this runoff because it really is coming down to turn out and turn out often comes down to money to making sure that we support candidates who have the ability to move a place like Mississippi forward. So, you know, Mississippi in in the Senate race that is ongoing there as a lesser tive of broader, political dynamics and how race interacts with politics in the south. So what's?.

"Weaves in Harper's fair. You got mansion mansions appeal for a democrat is unusual in West Virginia because it's the southern part of the state. It's coal country. It's the part that's it's flip the most of the Republicans. And yet there is strong residual mansion strength in that part of the state. I think that coupled with voting for cavenaugh in adding into that a Republican. Ndadate who doesn't have much natural appeal in that part of the state. That might be a powerful combination for Manch opening Piggly. We knew while we've got a brand new poll, just crossing it NBC news Mara's poll shows the special Senate election, Mississippi has a strong chance of heading to a runoff on November twenty. Seventh in the November six. So called jungle primary where multiple candidates regardless of party are competing Republican senators, Cindy Hyde Smith get support from thirty eight percent of likely voters democrat, Mike Espy gets twenty nine percent and Republican. Chris McDaniel gets fifteen percent with another fifteen undecided. So reminder of yours, how this works, Steve top to get into a runoff if that's where they are, right. This is essentially a special election. So what everybody for everybody else. Almost everybody else in the country is election day. They will have every candidate on the ballot and Mississippi. If nobody breaks fifty percent, they go to the runoff, not really shocked that this looks like it's headed towards runoff because you basically have to Republicans their height Smith and McDaniel and one democrat their SP. You add the two Republican totals. They are over fifty percent right now. The biggest fear for Republicans in this race at the outset was the Chris McDaniel who is seen as particularly polarizing and divisive figure in Mississippi one who might potentially put a race like this at risk in a runoff for Republicans, the fear for Republicans with he would get traction in this primary and get the nomination. They feel better about their chances with height Smith. All right. And you came bearing exclusive new poll out of California that chose a fifteen term Republican congressman fighting to hang on. Tell us about the. Yeah, so our friends at Monmouth university allowed us to exclusively release this right now brand new poll data Rohrbach district. California's forty eighth district. This is an interesting result. This is their likely voter model in that district mama th now has Dana Rohrabacher taking a two point lead here, why this is significant, not just besides Rohrabacher sort of a name himself. This is change over the summer mama polled this race and Harley Ruta his democratic challenger led by a couple of points. What accounts for the shift when we. Talk about Trump's approval rating ticking up in the last few weeks only by a few points, but saying those few points could be critical in this district. Trump's approval rating has gone from forty nine percent over the summer to fifty four percent in this new poll in that same period of time. You see Dana Rohrabacher the Republican support tick up basically a corresponding amount from losing this race by a few points to taking the lead in their likely voter model by a few points. Now, it's a fluid situation, mama says to, if you look at a really high turn scenario, Ruda may do better there, but this is why that uptick in Trump's approval rating. We've talked about the last few weeks. It looks like only a few papers a few points, but in a district like this, those few points could make a difference and stayed for our viewers who aren't familiar that with Dan Rohrabacher. He's, he's been called Vladimir Putin's favorite congressman at times it same said he's representing the interests of Putin more than the interest of his own district. He's. He's crossed US, military and Intel committees and believing the words like Trump of of former KGB agent instead of the FBI and the deny. He's really pretty far out there when it comes to supporting Putin and supporting Russia. Is that the only reason this racist close right now, it's it's also close because he, this Orange County, California in Orange County has been changing pretty dramatically..
