2:13 am
the violations, not wanting to see everyone's vaccine card to allow them to eat in their restaurants. they received a number of citations and you actually wrote to the president of the company over the situation they are dealing with, have you heard anything back. >> what the state of california is doing to this american icon is a tragedy. i applaud what lindsay snyder is doing, pushing. it would never happen in the state of florida but mark my words, just like tesla left california because of overregulation you will see in and out burger move out of the state of florida as well. >> you think they will move out of california. >> i grew up 30 years in the restaurant business and can relate to the struggles of what it takes to run an operation to make customers happy before i became cfo the state. we got enough a lot to offer. my phone is ringing off the hook
2:14 am
with site selectors, even the presidency of the saint joe company called me and said i will take lindsay around and show her sights that her products would work, amazing in our great beautiful state. >> that will be interesting for sure. i to pull up this quote, in and out refusing to comply with the mandates in california, quote, we refuse to become the vaccination police for any government. it is unreasonable, invasive and unsafe to force our restaurant associates to segregate customers into those who may be served and those who may not. can you tell me how difficult it is to take a stand like this. >> i applaud the encouragement he has shown but i know this. lindsay, what i can offer you in my commitment on behalf of the state of florida is you will be in a mandate free state. we love to see businesses
2:15 am
prosper and i had no idea there were so many east coasters who have eaten the west coast hamburger. from the bottom of my heart, this is an invitation that we will do whatever we need to enjoy your product in our beautiful state. >> i was wondering as one in charge of making decisions it must be a tough one to make because you know when you're making these decisions there are so many people, all your employees and customers need jobs, these employees and there's a lot on the line, it will be interesting to see how this plays out. in the meantime i to talk about what is going on in florida, take a listen to what ron desantis has to say about ports as a solution to the supply chain issue. >> we have capacity in our ports to offer good incentives they reroute their ships. if you're going to sit off the coast for days on end might as well bring it to florida. jillian: this is an issue affecting every person in this country, the supply chain crisis. is florida the answer to that? >> absolutely.
2:16 am
florida - millions of the goods automatically end up on the east coast. i applaud the governor's leadership on this. florida spent $1 billion just since 2019 enhancing our ports. look at what companies have done like home depot and walmart, target, they are making their own investments because they can't count on the solutions out of the biden administration. jillian: why of these should start off the coast of california or other locations haven't started to make their way to florida? >> as you see the president's only solution is we will make the crews work 24 hours a day that is not going to cut it. you wouldn't see the investments and commitments other private companies are making, the vaccine mandates in companies like jb hunt saying my truckers

>> the race for governor hitting
2:22 am
a fever pitch in estate president biden won by 10 points that republicans may have an opening that will push them to victory. a bit asking can republicans can repeat in suburbia soccer moms get set up with progressive excess in washington or at their area school boards? here to discuss is editorial board member at the wall street journal, democrats playing with fire when it comes to suburban parents they literally road to victory less than a year ago? >> if you look at virginia president biden carried by 10 points a year ago and where we are having these fights, fairfax county went for president biden 41 points. in loudoun county, 24 points. terry mcauliffe should be coasting to victory in virginia but education is the key issue because terry mcauliffe's debate
2:23 am
that parents shouldn't have anything to do with what is taught in school and shouldn't be allowed to see what is in the library, the library books, that has galvanized a lot of people, the remarks are damaging in themselves, the youngcan campaign used them to full advantage but it is in the context of now we know there was a sexual assault in loudoun county and the superintendent, sure there are no sexual assaults of parents are furious about that and the national school board association implying parents who protest these things are domestic terrorists so all these are energizing a lot of people who are not necessarily republican. youngcan is doing better with independents and the question is
2:24 am
can he get enough in the suburbs for victory. >> undecided folks, 5% are in that category. i'm curious, this close to election day what ultimately could sway them one way or another in a short time remaining? >> the issues are out there. the question is turn out. that is why terry mcauliffe is bringing in barack obama, stacy abrams with claims of a stolen election. it does look a little desperate but if glenn youngkin doesn't win this race with all the circumstances favorable to him and running a pretty good campaign it will be hard to see any republican winning ever. todd: really? >> it would mean virginia is structurally a blue state at the state level. they could win local elections
2:25 am
and so forth but if glenn youngcan can't pull this out it is hard to imagine another republican doing it. >> in the 20 seconds remaining shouldn't we expect any last-minute surprises as we lead up to next tuesday? >> we could. i don't know. the mcauliffe campaign is stayed on message at their mission is trump from trump, scare people want from, through an abortion. they are running a very national campaign where youngkin is doing bread and butter issues like schools and crime so terry mcauliffe is going to stick to the script. >> on choice to not back away from the position on the video where he was caught saying parents should have no choice but doubling down, focusing on trump, see which one works, thank you, sir. appreciate it. >> look at this. dramatic video showing and ef 2 tornado ripping across the texas highway, the tornado crashing
