With just one day left, Sean kicked off Monday’s show by interviewing some of the important battleground races. First up was Florida Senatorial candidate Marco Rubio. “I think a lot of people see a lot of potential in you,” praised Hannity, “That’s my speculation for what it’s worth.” “That’s very flattering,” thanked Rubio, “There are those who believe we should go in the direction of Western Europe but that’s not where Americans want to go.” The latest Quinnipiac poll is showing Rubio comfortably ahead with 45% of the vote but that’s not slowing the candidate down now. With just over 24 hours, the final push is here! For more, check out Fox News.com.
Congresswoman Michele Bachmann
Sean was joined by Congresswoman Michele Bachmann who has found herself in the political battle of her life after being the main target of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. “There are those who’re shocked that I, Sean Hannity, a well-known conservative donated to your campaign coffers,” laughed Hannity, “my explanation is that money was earmarked to Nancy Pelosi and Barney Frank and I don’t know how it got in your coffers.” The Minnesota Post has reported that this race has been the most expensive House race in the history of the United States with over $13 million being spent. September’s SurveyUSA poll shows Bachmann with a nine point lead which is the same lead she had in July but that’s no reason for the conservative congresswoman to relax just yet.
Senator Sharron Angle?
The latest Rasmussen Reports are showing that Sharron Angle is leading the race against Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid by a 50 to 47 percent margin. “I know I speak for many people who’re going to be watching your race very closely,” acknowledged Sean, “I know you have a rigorous schedule tonight.” This is such an important race because it will send a shocking message to the Washington establishment that the current leadership is not representing America. As a quick side note, Senator Reid spent some time in 2003 and 2004 as the Deputy Majority Leader. The Majority Leader at that time was Senator Tom Daschle, who lost his re-election bid in 2004.
