Hard to say democratic Minneapolis mayor RT -- impetus now is also the DNC vice -- very good to have you out there how do you see things going in that particular.
General predicts another part of the Obama folks that they could have the swing state sleep tomorrow.
Well I was thrilled when I heard the Republicans predicting they -- gonna -- in Minnesota.
The president obviously gonna carry Minnesota but we love the fact you're coming and spending money the president's -- so much to help the economy here.
We just think of fun of Republicans helped a little -- spend a little money spent finance but -- it -- any chance that they could -- Edmondson.
There's always the chance -- throttle control are -- well be up till midnight.
Doing a big group can campus rally all over the fate today but.
Minnesota's strong state for the president and we'll continue to be and you mentioned this thing about from the left I was in Ohio yesterday -- got a lot in Wisconsin and Iowa and Paul Ryan has fizzled they thought he could carry this part of the state.
He's not -- -- carry Wisconsin because there's.
You don't -- is gone as well so -- -- -- that was sort of like that back.
Policy that it did.
That maybe they could cobble together enough other.
Rust Belt states and I'll just throw in there.
Bio and and Minnesota and Wisconsin.
Or couple of these others to offset.
Losing that you don't -- -- likely.
No it's clear they're gonna lose Ohio and so -- -- million and that's what you have to do when why do you think -- clearly gonna lose them.
Well you know -- -- I'm in Ohio and certainly the polls say that but also the other -- a little model -- so it would.
You produce stuff on -- probably aren't I I think I think there's some pretty good -- frame but let's let's set the poll of five -- -- the reality have been on the ground Eric I was -- all parts of Ohio of the past.
Couple days and what is really remarkable with the secretary of state down they're trying to do a lot to suppress turnout they try to cut off Sunday voting -- huge thing for Democrats in Ohio.
Well we were able to keep those polls open.
And it was unbelievably exciting to be in Cleveland yesterday.
And it was like a street scene with a huge huge line which I think is is terrible thing but the good news is that people weren't move.
They were -- you're not trouble and now we're not troubled by by the way I know -- concern about suppress voting.
I didn't hear very and we should -- number but I didn't hear you're saying concerned about.
These ballots -- Romney's supporters -- writing that came out for Obama but I'm sure you were an -- you're -- but I do want to focus on just this notion that the state.
As far as early voting is concerned it's down substantially in the number of Democrats.
Who voted early -- sort of 30000 fewer -- around -- 200870.
Somewhat thousand more.
Republicans -- did I don't know whether that translates into any difference from the numbers you just alluded to -- but.
Wouldn't that be a little troubling.
Well -- I think we're looking at different numbers I know for instance that.
That all over the country we've had those numbers -- certainly in Florida or North Carolina.
And absolutely and Ohio we've also had real.
Surges in turn out in.
I think both of our African American Latino numbers are showing up 20% so.
The other lot a 100% ground where -- are also among -- is -- core groups are not even though in the aggregate.
The number of those voting early who are.
Counted as Democrats it's down.
We're looking at different numbers.
But what I think is really clear 12 quarter and we're just aren't just Ohio those numbers I guard official.
Now that you're -- -- Democrats other initiatives to all the Democrats are Democrat all the Republicans vote Republican.
But a lot more Republicans voting early this time the lot fewer well and pretty business.
It's pretty fun to stand on that line -- -- last night and I can tell it's really clear that there are voting for President Obama okay but the other part of -- that I think is is really -- -- that we never really shut down the offices we have from 2008.
I'm back in December -- remember opening a second office in Sioux City, Iowa the second -- -- -- in December.
And we've opened office after office.
And that's not just about real -- that's about having a neighborhood network turnout operation and people getting to know their neighbors talking them.
And you -- only have a grassroots operation for -- got grassroots support.
Obama has and that's what we're gonna -- -- -- closer you are right about it was an enviable grassroots operation that.
And help so that the president and Senator Obama triumph over Hillary Clinton and -- easy victory for years and we'll see if that is repeated good points -- thank you very much thanks.
