1:05 pm
to unseat senators david perdue and kelly loeffler trying to counter some of that trump energy with a drive-in rally in georgia. as they have throughout this campaign they continue to pay perdue and loeffler as senators more concerned about enriching themselvessings instead of helping the people of georgia. today was also about their new slogan of help, jobs and justice really driving home the fact that people here in georgia and across the country need a senate that will work with president elect bide opinion to fulfill needs of the american people in midst of the pandemic and last week democrats have a big name to drive home that message. >> it's not that we just need two seats in order for the in in democrats to control the agenda but these are kinds of gentlemen who are going to be able to -- create an atmosphere of --
1:06 pm
of cooperation, of progress and most of all keeping the concerns of the american people and the people of georgia first. >> you know guys democrats are really pushing the message that this is not only about georgia. this is about america. and lifting this country out of what democrats believe is a mess that was created by president trump and republicans. eric. eric: all right charles, that up for debate waiting for rally to start in a few hours from now. thanks. president is scheduled to lead the white house about 20 minutes or so from now landing in georgia we're told, of course, about two hours from now. that rally we've been covering -- begins at 7 a.m. eastern time. trace gallagher will be here for the special coverage to bring you that live. so stick around here in the fox news channel for the president's rally tonight and tomorrow night there's a big debate between two

1:08 pm
not putting out readout of this call but the governor office saying they have spoken the president has been sharply critical of the georgia governor. ever since the election, even as there's been so much focus on what's been happening here at the white house and different states all over the country. one thing they'll be listening to is seeing how much the president will be focused on what he wants to see happen next with these state legislatures that will be handling electoral college as they get ready to sendingoff votes to washington later on this month on friday as you mention president legal team had a chance to file a new lawsuit in georgia essentially asking for a doover here that they want the results not to continue in georgia even though something as we've talked about there's been so many reports from the republican secretary of state as well as other georgia officials saying there was not widespread fraud. and while the president has been also talking about this secretary of state of georgia has been pushing back saying biden won the peach state without fraud. >> we did a 100% hand recount
1:09 pm
retally during audit process that verified accuracy of machine and count and then done roadway count running ballots of paper ballots through again and we've gotten the same results virtually the same. >> the president and supporter that continue challenges in court but rfly come up empty i was in michigan earlier this week trying to get the state legislatures to look at other options out there but that doesn't seem to have made a difference president calling out republicans today on twitter he felt that are recognizing president-elect joe biden as just that as the president-elect. also meantime i want to mention what's happened up in new york where a federal judge has declared that the daca program should be reinstated daca providing protection for undocumented immigrants often calls from dreamers from deported argued that program was not legal and overreach of executive powers from the obama administration, well daca supporters thrilled with this latest news there's always the possibility it can get challenged in court again an

covid roles will be hard for many parents especially when it comes to closing play grounds. i spoke with a mom this morning who says she's following the health guidelines but that it's been tough. >> it's been incredibly difficult it is been difficult explaining it to the kids. it has been difficult seeing how it impacts them. you know you want to be encouraging your child to go up to other kids to explore, to interact. and having to like hold them back feels so strange. and so abnormal -- >> here in southern california, los angeles imposed a city wide stay at home order last weekend l.a. county restricted nonessential activities and banned outdoor and indoor dining. a move that has restaurant owners confused and angry. this video went viral last night, the owner of a restaurant in sherman oak went to her business on friday morning only to find tents next to her closed outdoor dining area.

1:14 pm
new covid relief package now. the new congress will be sworn in next month with a democratic majority in the house shrinking to just a handful of seats. david spunt live in wilmington, delaware. david. reporter: good evening to you it is possible when the gavel in at the beginning of january and just about a month there will be two empty seats that's because we have several races that are incredibly close. it is also possible we could see a blue senate that is if the runoff in georgia turns to the democrats favor. now we're talking about the house, the house majority won't be as strong, though, it will be a democrat majority. but it won't be as strong as current congress because republicans picked up seats and closed gap with democrats. but two races as i said a month after election are incredibly close. democratic congressman anthony in new york is trailing claudia
1:15 pm
kenny by 12 votes at last official count then several dozens ballots were found it is not clear if they were previously counted. stay tuned to that race miller meets from iowa -- she was certify as winner in local municipality there by six votes her challenger democrat reta heart signaling a legal challenge heart is appealing to house leadership in washington to get involved. house speaker, nancy pelosi could always refuse to seat miller meeks and begin an official review of the race because we're talking about just six votes. listen. >> this my understanding that reta heart an excellent candidate for congress will be asking the house to take this up. but that should further information about technicality of that that becomes house not a political vote but a house administration matter. house decides who it will seat.
1:16 pm
reporter: pelosi says that new york is a different situation with anthony because there are more votes that need to be counted but ultimately arthel, this will affect president biden after he takes oath of office on january 20th because this is a congress that he's going to be working with depending on what type of bills economic bills -- any type of military bills that he wants to get through he's going to have to deal with it as for the president-elect he's been meeting with members of his transition team talking about cabinet position attorney general defense secretary also the secretary of health and human services which is an incredibly important position because that's going to be the position that ultimately will kind of head the effort to get out those vaccines to tens of millions of americans. arthel. arthel: yeah david spunt in wilmington, delaware. thanks, david. eric. eric: yeah arthel six votes 12 votes, i mean, such importance of voting. we know the president right now set to leave for the white house
1:17 pm
for georgia. well any moment now, it will be his first campaign rally since the election. can help republicans win a state that certified for joe biden last month? and will this rally and his efforts be able to keep the senate and gop hands as you can see we're live in georgia, we'll bring you the president when he's there and arrives. and what he says -- stay with us. if your dry eye symptoms keep coming back,
1:18 pm
inflammation in your eye might be to blame. looks like a great day for achy, burning eyes over-the-counter eye drops typically work by lubricating your eyes and may provide temporary relief. ha! these drops probably won't touch me. xiidra works differently, targeting inflammation that can cause dry eye disease. what is that? xiidra, noooo! it can provide lasting relief. xiidra is the only fda approved treatment specifically for the signs and symptoms of dry eye disease. one drop in each eye, twice a day. don't use if you're allergic to xiidra. common side effects include eye irritation, discomfort or blurred vision when applied to the eye, and unusual taste sensation. don't touch container tip to your eye or any surface. after using xiidra, wait 15 minutes before reinserting contacts. got any room in your eye? talk to an eye doctor about twice-daily xiidra. i prefer you didn't! xiidra. not today, dry eye.

[ muffled scream ] stop living with at&t. xfinity can deliver gig to the most homes.
1:21 pm
>> for all we've done, for all we have yet to do, we need the peach state to defend the majority. because the road to the senate republican majority runs right through the state of georgia. eric: that's mike pence urging georgia i can to run on runoff election despite trump campaign legal challenges claiming election fraud there. trump will be speaking in georgia a few hours from now 7 p.m. rally being called a, quote, victory rally but for republican senators david perdue and kel lit loeffler both face january runoffs that will decide which party controls the senate
1:22 pm
so there's a lot at stake. suzanne she's congressional for washington examiner joins us now. suzanne likely will be a valley warm welcome but what is the president for in the speech tonight? >> again depends who you ask. the republicans want the mission to be holding on to the senate and as you said, this race, this rare double runoff race in georgia will decide who gets the majority in 2021. will it be the in democrats or e republican and if it is democrats well then you have a full sweep of government you have biden in white house and congress run by democrats they'll be able to potentially passes part of their own sleeping or much of their own sweeping agenda with that scenario. but republicans want to hang on to their majority so two seats in georgia -- are absolutely critical. and so is what president trump says in -- he takes a stage and it's
1:23 pm
completely about the election for the white house that he's contesting, that could undermine confidence in the election process of georgia and perhaps lower the turnout for republican voters. that would be absolutely catastrophic for the party. so what will the president say? you know, there are people lined up camped out ready to see the president today in georgia. he is the one drawing in all of these potential voters here, and not necessarily the two georgia candidates for the republican seats. is he going to talk only about the fact that he's felt election was stolen from him that georgia has so many problems that it should be overturned or is he going to focus on the two candidates who have to win these races in order to refer republicans to hold on to solid majority in the senate? you'll probably hear a little bit of both but where does he put his energy is it going to be
1:24 pm
about his race that he feels is still undecided? or is it going to be about these two very critical senate seats that are up for grabs on january a 5th. eric: that question up in his mind and he called governor kemp to give him to move to overturn results of the election reportedly to try to call a special session of the legislature the governor it is reported said not in his power to do nap look the state has been certified now for mr. biden. they've will two kowngts one hand count one machine count up by 12,000 votes you know for mr. biden officials say there's no -- you know massive fraud that would change the election. there are about 250 allegations we're told that the georgia bureau of investigation are looking at. so if the president spends most of his speech of doing that takes tension away from two republican candidates who from his view he's got to get in there, you know, could that
1:25 pm
squelch their message and how do campaigns deal with that? >>s that right he's the main draw here. everybody wants the president to focus his energy on the senate remaining in republican hands. and if you look at results that came out after november 3rd republicans are favored to hold on to seat but not by a lot. and there's a poll that shows democrats gaining or ahead in those two races. so it's really important it is really on the line here there's also three ways to vote. there's in person, early absentee voting and then there's mail-in voting. so there's three ways to -- for voters to register their vote. democrats have upper hand on mail-in voting they've established that already. so republicans i think have a lot to be concerned about. the parties really pushing this rally as you said a vrkt victory rally to hold on to sents elect rile will favor in a special
1:26 pm
election because it is not same people who turn out on november third but smaller group more focused group of voter so it has historically favor republicans s so what the president says tonight that could really help republicans push this -- over the finish line for them for january fifth -- to get out there to vote but if he's going to talk nothing about a lack of confidence -- in how the election system works in georgia, and that could dampen enthusiasm enough to hurt turnout. these, you know, these special elections really are about turnout. eric: yeah. what's your bets? both going to win both going to lose or split the votes? what do you think will happen in this race in january? ening >> number favor republicans in both of those races. and it's uphill climb for democrats but main hill factor i think make this is a little bit different that you can't be assured it if you're a republican that you're going win a special election runoff but i
1:27 pm
think well i'll be paying very close attention when president starts talking to hear whether he helps or hurts the cause. eric: all right we'll see and, of course, covering that live here in fox news channel 7 p.m. eastern good to see you susan of the washington examiner. thank you as always for your insight. , of course. arthel. arthel: thanks earth and suzanne small businesses are struggling to stay afloat with more lockdowns going into effect and government relief money about to run out. we'll tell you about one group in virginia that is giving mom and pop stores a helping hand. ♪ ok everyone, our mission is to provide complete, balanced nutrition for strength and energy.

arthel: protest against police brutality turning violent in paris after they smash up windows and torch cars in the french capitol. let's go to kitty logan she's following all of this for us from london. what can you tell us kitty? reporter: hi, arthel so protest peacefully but police say it was infiltrated by hundreds of hard core demonstrator who is may have been behind some of the worst of the violence that we're seeing here. certainly several vehicles were set on fire a bank was looted, around 30 have been made so far we understand, and police say around 500 troublemakers who join that demonstration instigated chaotic scene some burning barricade smashing windows police officers in riot
1:44 pm
gear fire tear gas in response of the violence spiral now this protest is in response to a drop security bill which gives more power to have surveillance. now this bill also prevents publication of images of police which is the government says is to stop online hate. but critics say it prevents the public filming misconduct by police and tensions, of course, have been heightened since footage of one beaten by police last month this unrest a real challenge for french president emmanuel macron as he tries to toughen up on law and order in the country. and earlier this week he backed down as con physician to protesters agreeing to review part of this controversial bill but the public backlashed continues. and so these protest continue we also saw violence since last week -- protest continued across france and if this bill goes ahead and becomes law we could see more at
1:45 pm
this type of unrest. arthel. arthel: kitty logan live in london thanks kitty. >> compromise is within reach. we know where we agree. we can do this. let me say it again, we can do this. >> the bipartisan framework unveiled by the senators and bipartisan way with the support of house members in the house -- both sides of the aisle could be a basis for real and negotiations. >> well those are two sides as you heard them both say it after months of stall talks there's optimism finally in washington for a covid financial relief bill. what will be in it moderate pressing both sides house speaker nancy pelosi and senator mitch mcconnell to agree there's a deal to be struck but, you know, with current time and aid running out by the end of the year, there are still some
1:46 pm
differences remaining so house may pass thing he is up so anita political white house correspondent for politico and associate editor of politico so anita they're getting close number what, 908 billion dollars on the table now. what do you think we can see what do we expect? >> well it's been months and we've been back and forth so i'll never say it's going to happen but it does sound they do sound really more optimistic than they've seen and one of the reasons, of course, is that the election is behind them. now they're sort of getting down to business. and remember a lot of people are if to lose some of the aid that they are getting near the end of the month i think there's a lot of pressure. so what can we see you know they are coalescing around this bill that you mentioned but remember, senator mcconnell has said he still doesn't agree with that amount of money and he's looking at about a $500 bill -- 500 billion dollar deal instead. so they still have to agree on this amounts of money and, of course, they still have to agree
1:47 pm
on what's in that, and they have some philosophical differences on some of those things that are in there. >> so you're sitting at home you're out of a job you've been hit so hard by coronavirus you work at a restaurant or bar or business that's struggling. what kind of hope do you have what -- can we expect democrats wanted a payment of 1,200. they used to have 600 now democrats or republicans say maybe 300. as far as we know -- what can we expect do you think? >> yeah. , i mean, it does not sound like the stimulus checks that people americans got earlier in the year. that it is on the table i know democrats still want that. but in this compromise bill that came out earlier in the week that's not there. what that bill has is as you mentioned unemployment benefits it also has some money for local and state governments democrats think it should have more they're looking at some money for vaccine distribution which, of course, is so important at this point when one of the first
1:48 pm
vaccines is about to come out. and they're looking at that really popular program to provide help to small businesses that, you know, a lot of businesses some larger ones but a lot of small businesses in that earlier this year so those are things they're looking at in thes want some things that republicans don't and vice versa but republicans really want that liability protection for companies for businesses democrats don't like that broad protection. democrats want more money for state and local governments to those are the two issues i think that are the biggest sticking point. >> that protection that situation is protection for companies from being sued if employees get coronavirus. senator bernie sanders said that's breaks the deal for him he's going to vote against it and get out of jail free card prl companies republicans want corporations to be presented. you know, can the in democrats d republicans get together on that

in a possible wail or horse trading opposed to trying to protect, you know, maybe corporate interest? >> yeah. i mean this is really if i had to peck one thing that they disagreed on from the beginning, it's this. i mean, you know, it's not that it is this one that they just aren't two different sides you're just mentioning bernie sanders who says he doesn't want it. you know we have mitch mcconnell saying it has to be in there so it's a philosophical disagreement as to other issues as to how much money to give up a particular program and that's really going to be tough now that bill that came out earlier this week as compromised did include some of the liability protections, and democrats some of the other democrats said as you saw bernie sanders and others are saying, no i'm not going -- not for that so that's one they're going to have to look at how can they get around that major impasse. >> quickly i think we'll get something by the end of the year? >> you know it sure does look like it when you have president trump and president-elect joe
1:50 pm
biden saying let's get something done you have the house and you have the senate saying it. it does sowpgd like it. i mean, they all sound more optimistic than they were before. and the fact that democrats said you know we want two or three trillion before and now they've agreed to one trillion or less. really shows that they're wanting to, you know, these are some confessions for them they really want to get it done and i think that was just a surprise this week when they said they would go with less amount of none so it does sound like everybody wants to do something, of course, always about the details can they agree on what's in the bill? eric: and ten million jobs have not yet come back. anita, political white house correspondent politico, anita, great to see you thank you. >> thanks. arthel: a winter storm slamming new england with millions under threat from the first nor'easter of the season. how bad will it get? and when will it clear? forecast is next. - [announcer] your typical vacuum has bristles

economic relief package and depending what happens in georgia with this runoff, the power, the control of the senate come january for the next congress could make a difference, it could be easy or difficult. that's if it happens under the president elects watch. if it's under president trump's watch, that is a completely different story. president-elect joe biden says the situation is dire. he wants to see an economic relief package, a bipartisan relief package come as soon as possible. our cameras were there this evening as the president-elect walked into church his family church. he met with some family members this evening and spent the afternoon with his advisers filling out cabinet positions. attorney general, defense secretary and the next leader of health and human services, still waiting for those names to come out to the public. the hhs position is critical as is the person who will oversee the large-scale distribution of the vaccines to millions of americans in the coming months. one week from today, healthcare

2:24 pm
political correspondent for the washington post and author of the daily 202. republicans have spent or the three existing million dollars on this runoff election is this money well spent come one month from today? reporter: >> the stakes could be higher for reporters or democrats. if democrats one both of these seats, kamala harris will break the tie, a majority that will allow president biden to push through his agenda. the pelicans are eager to find a way to win. they are favored to win both. ultimately, biden one georgia by about 12,000 votes. the first democrat to do so since 1992 when bill clinton was on the ballot ultimately, it is still a more red states and bl blue. it's even more red than purple. part of it is who's going to turn out.
2:25 pm
usually in these runoff elections, turnout is far lower than the general election. this year, we saw the highest turnout in a century in the presidential election because people on both sides were really motivated. the question is, who's going to be more motivated january 5 that's why everyone is watching the rally tonight with president trump in both parties, to what degree he encourages people to turn out and participate with these two senators will be on the ballot when he is not. arthel: we are looking at a live shot out there in georgia, can the president star power overshadow the candidate cells? >> it's more about whether he spends his time during the rally going off, there is some history there. originally a former senator from georgia, he had health problems so he had to resign and the governor to appoint his
2:26 pm
successor. trump pushed him pretty hard to appoint doug collins. he's a big l.a. of the president on the house side, especially during impeachment inquiry the governor appointed kelly loeffler to the seat because he wanted republicans to be able to appeal to suburban women in the event of suburbs who they were struggling with, someone with kelly's background. so there's bad blood between trump and kemp ever since kemp made that appointment, the 28 team midterms so one of the things happening right now is the president down there, age and were hogan's are trying really hard to keep the president focused on making the case for loeffler, who the president elected that candidates doesn't feel like it's a great senator so his aides are trying to keep the president saying let's focus on why people should go forward, don't focus on frustrations with the county and certification
2:27 pm
process and the government because ultimately, it could depress your own base returning out and if replicants will win in georgia, they will need hurt turnout among people who support the president and voted for him last month. arthel: also, the candidate himself appealing to the undecided or independent voters. >> is really going to be a base election. there aren't that many undecided voters. it's getting their people out. there is some risk in terms of undecided voters the president will alienate them with the way he's gone about this, attacking the elections officials, that could turn off some voters in the middle or maybe because some people to stay home. mostly, this is about, or democrats able to get high african-american turnout in atlanta and savannah? the way they were able to last month that's why president obama
2:28 pm
held a virtual campaign yesterday for the democrats. on the republican side, are they able to drive the same level of turnout they got a month ago? arthel: i've seen reports, read reports where the asian vote there in georgia is very, could be helpful to the democrat side if they turn out. a month from today, so we will be watching and see what happens. thank you for joining us. eric. eric: you can see them there, let's take a look. knowing the president is on his way to the rally. the sun may be setting but the president looks to drive for publicans to the polls. democrats millions of dollars into advertising. the control of the senate at stake, republicans have another election defeat. jody heist is here next to tell us. ♪

someone to speak off the top of his head and this would likely be an emotional moment for him. he kind of teared up at the end of the campaign and another rally when they started chanting out we love you and he kind of did get a bit emotional there. you expect him to reflect? do you expect him to have a fighting spirit? would you expect to hear from him besides this race in georgia? any reflections on his tenure and what he hopes for the country? >> i don't know if you've been to any of the rallies, any of the rallies you go to with president trump, they are extremely emotional because they are so inspiring and patriotic, so about america. i can tell you two things. number one, the president is going to be overwhelmingly received with love and respect and admiration and appreciation here in georgia. the state loves him, they are grateful for him and appreciate

testing of the vaccine as presented in the phase i, phase ii and efficacy trial which recently read out with very strong signals of efficacy are all incredibly encouraging and we have an effective vaccine. as you said, things being done this quickly means we do not have long-term data. we don't know if the immunity production last three months, six months, five years or ten years. a vaccine like measles, polio, smallpox last for decades. other vaccines like influenza, we received a shot every year. i think it's these kinds of data are talking about help inform us that at three months, the immunity, we will have to continue to follow this three months, six months, a year from now to ensure we understand the persistence of immunity and therefore what is likely for
