Just 2 days until election day, and Ed is out at Democracy Plaza for a special live edition of “The Ed Show”! Mitt Romney continues to campaign in Ohio, where President Obama still holds an almost 3 point lead, while his running mate Paul Ryan tries for a Hail Mary in his home state of Wisconsin. Vice President Joe Biden also spoke to voters in Ohio, while President Obama and former President Bill Clinton rallied supporters in New Hampshire. Ben LaBolt, national press secretary for the Obama campaign, will have an update from their headquarters in Chicago, and Richard Wolffe, Vice President and Executive Editor of MSNBC.com, and Jonathan Alter of Bloomberg View join Ed for analysis.
Then, Florida Gov. Rick Scott tries to block the vote by refusing to extend early voting hours, but voters aren’t giving up without a fight. Mitch Ceasar of the Broward County Democratic Party joins Ed with the latest on voting in the Sunshine State.
The Romney team continues to push its lie about Jeep jobs moving to China. Teamsters General President James Hoffa weighs in on one of Mitt Romney’s biggest lies about the economy, and how it’s playing in Ohio.
The Republican spin continues. Former Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour and Karl Rove think Hurricane Sandy gave President Obama an advantage in the polls. And Dick Morris predicts a landslide for Mitt Romney… or maybe not. MSNBC political analyst Karen Finney and E.J. Dionne of the Washington Post discuss the latest spin from the GOP talking heads.
And tomorrow is the final push for both candidates, and they’re pulling out all the stops. Howard Fineman of the Huffington Post joins Ed with an update from the campaign trail.
