RCP’s Tom Bevan: Georgia Special Election Very Close, Expect A Late Night


RCP co-founder Tom Bevan joins a Fox News panel hosted by Martha McCallum about Tuesday night's special election in Georgia's sixth district between Democrat Jon Ossoff and Republican Karen Handel. FNC's Chris Stirewalt and Austin Goolsbee and fill out the panel. About the electorate, Bevan explains: "This is a very Republican district, although Trump only won it by two points last time. The trend lines favor Handel. Ossoff had a lead in the polls… but the last round of polls showed her closing pretty quick. Now the polls are an absolute tossup. It is going to be a nail-biter, a late night. But if you look at the way things are moving, things seemed to shift in [Handel's] direction at the end of the campaign." Asked who he thinks will win, Bevan predicted a close Handel win.

Bevan: Democrats Moved From ‘Collusion’ To ‘Obstruction’ To ‘Emoluments’ Accusations; Only Want Trump Out


RCP co-founder and publisher Tom Bevan joins Bret Baier and FNC's 'Special Report' panel to explain why today's Senate testimony from Attorney General Jeff Sessions is not going to be the end of the attempts to implicate the Trump administration for doing something (anything) illegal. BRET BAIER: Is there a chance that Capitol Hill moves on [from the Russia investigation]? When does the onus shift? I've asked this a couple times to different panels and different people… Does it ever shift to there being a there, there? Otherwise we all need to move on. TOM BEVAN: I don't think so. BAIER: [Special investigator] Bob Mueller? BEVAN: Well look, theoretically in a perfect world, Bob Mueller will come out with a decision that… moves forward the investigation. And that would be sort of the decisive moment. But I do think we have seen the Democrats… because the base of their party… do not believe that Trump is the legitimate president, and they want to see him removed by any means necessary. So there was initially collusion, then we are moving to obstruction, and now we're moving to Democratic Attorneys General of states suing on the emoluments clause, next they are going to go after his business dealings. So even if Bob Mueller comes out with a decisive opinion one way or the other, this is going to carry on.

Tom Bevan: Stop The Congressional “Kabuki” Hearings And Let The Special Investigator Do His Job


RCP co-founder and publisher Tom Bevan joins FNC's 'Special Report' panel to react to today's explosive Senate testimony from Attorney General Jeff Sessions: TOM BEVAN: Bloomberg report this morning that 39 states… the Russians tried to hack into. This is serious stuff, and it is bipartisan. Let's get to the bottom of this. But what we've seen in Washington for the past couple of weeks has not been about this. It is about James Comey, Jeff Sessions, collusion, obstruction. I fully agree with Sen. Klobuchar and others [that we need to find the truth]. But do it in a classified setting then, let the special counsel proceed with his investigation. Let's stop the public Kabuki that is going on here, which is all about innuendo and not about that, which is a serious matter.

Tom Bevan: Trump Has Already Moved The Overton Window On Sanctuary Cities


On Wednesday's edition of the Special Report panel on Fox News Channel, RCP co-founder Tom Bevan responded to a federal judge blocking President Trump's executive order to cut off funding to sanctuary cities. Bevan said that it is not necessarily a bad thing for President Trump to face legal challenges on policy — his hard line stance has already encouraged many former sanctuary cities to abandon the policy. "I don't think it is a bad thing for Donald Trump to be fighting with the courts on this issue. If you talk about the Overton Window, the framing of this in public discourse, Trump has already moved the window of what is acceptable. There are a lot of cities around the country that have stopped doing sanctuary city-type policies, mainly because they do not want to cross the federal government," he said. "By and large, I think this will sort itself out… I don't think it is much ado about nothing, but politically speaking, I don't think it is a bad thing for Trump to be mixing it up with the [notoriously left wing] Ninth Circuit."
