Showdown for the Swing State Senators

With the election nine days away the key to this election are the swing states that are up for grabs. Four senators of those eight toss-up states debated what needs to happen in this election and which candidate has it right, on “Fox News Sunday.” 

 

Sen. Mark Udall (D-CO), Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA), Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) and Sen. Rob Portman (R-OH) all joined the show from across the country. 

 

Talks began with how each campaign is working to get voters to the polls. And with many states already open for early voting, it’s down to a game of which party can get the most people out early, or on November 6th. 

 

Sen. Udall stressed the importance of early voting, especially in his state of Colorado where he says that about 80% of ballots will be cast before election day. 

 

The conversation between the four senators moved to the economy, where Sen. Warner said to, “look at where we are and where we’ve come from,” and that compared to the rest of the world, “we are the shining spot,” said Sen. Warner. 

 

Chris discussed whether or not women’s issues would play a role in the election, however, Sen. Johnson did not think it would, at least for his state.

 

“Abortion is not even an issue here,” said Sen. Johnson, he said that rather, voters were more focused on the economy and jobs.

 

The discussion rolled on between the senators and Chris until they got to the Benghazi issue and the handling of the attack. 

 

“This is not about politics, this is about a national security issue,” said Sen. Portman. 

 

But quick to respond, Sen. Udall said that, “any impartial observer would have to say this situation has been politicized, we ought to be pulling together.”
