    The Final Countdown

    This Week: 

    The final presidential debate is in the books. Unlike the first go-round the second exchange between President Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden took a more civil tone. The coronavirus pandemic, China, corruption and energy policy were some of the topics that dominated the night. Jared and FOX News Radio Political Analyst Josh Kraushaar recapped the big moments and if it reached the remaining undecided voters.

    Remember the blue wall? It’s the collection of states Democrats relied on for an Electoral College advantage before President Trump blew it apart by winning Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin in 2016. The swing state of Ohio is also one of the “pivot states” who voted for the President in 2016 after supporting President Obama. So will Joe Biden be able to get Ohio and the other blue wall and pivot states to vote Democrat this November? Jared and Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH) discuss.

    The Justice Department filed an antitrust lawsuit against Google, alleging the big tech company engaged in anticompetitive conduct to preserve monopolies via its search engine. This comes as lawmakers on both sides of the aisle sound off on Silicon Valley. FOX News Headlines 24/7 anchor and Technology Reporter Brett Larson joins to explain.

    Election Day is approaching and there is still so much to be done on Capitol Hill before November 3rd. On Monday the full Senate will vote on the confirmation of Judge Amy Coney Barrett. And negotiations between the White House and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi continue for the second coronavirus stimulus bill, but is too late to see it become legislation before the election?

    2020 has been an unusual year to say the least and the upcoming November election will be no different. COVID-19 has caused a surge in mail in voting this year and it is likely that we will not know the winner of the presidential race by the time November 3rd turns into November 4th. Jared spoke with Arnon Mishkin, Director of the FOX News Decision Desk on planning for an election week and how they plan to make race calls this year.
