to South Dakota.
- Hello, South Dakota.(audience cheers)
- The crowds were enthusiastic,
as was the VP.
The blue wave.
We were just on AirForce One the other day.
President says, "The blue wave's dead."
What's the answer on theblue wave we're hearing
so much about?- Well, we think
the blue wave's gonna hit a red wall all
across this country.
I think we're gonna expand our majority
in the United States Senate.
- You do?- I really believe
we're gonna hold theHouse of Representatives.
- First stop, Montana,where the goal is to defeat
a Senate Democrat livingin Big Sky Trump country.
How much is John Tester introuble here in Montana?
- We think Matt Rosendaleis in a great position
to win this race.
John Tester has been votingwith the liberal agenda
in the United States Senateevery step of the way,
voted more than 90% of the time
with President Obama's agenda.
That's not Montana.
- Pence's final pitch tovoters is pretty simple
and to the point.
Think of a 4.5 million newjobs created, unemployment
at a 50-year low, we'rerebuilding our military,
Constitutional conservativesbeing appointed to our courts,
and that's exactly whatthe President and I
told the American people that we would do.
And the Democrats, by contrast,
it's been an agenda of obstruction.
- But Democrats arefired up and turned off
by this administration's policies.
Immigration is closeto the top of the list.
What do you make of someof the rhetoric coming,
what they say, is from thisadministration on immigration?
- We have a crisis of illegal immigration
at our southern border.
This caravan that's movingnorth is deeply concerning
to people all across this country.
I hear about it every day.
It's the reason why thePresident's made it clear that the
caravan will not be allowed toenter our country illegally,
and we're taking decisivesteps to administratively
close the loopholes that humantraffickers use to exploit
vulnerable families andentice them to take the long
and dangerous journey north.
- [David] Motivating the faithful base
is Pence's main chore.
- So if you're taking notes,
I need you to vote.
- If Republicans do wellTuesday night, Pence is pretty
clear that the non-stop effortfrom President Trump will be
a main reason.
- Even though he's not on theballot, he's campaigned as
though he were, and I thinkthat's the reason why we've seen
such energy around thecountry, to be honest with you,
David, as I've traveledaround the country.
I haven't seen this level ofenthusiasm since the days just
before the 2016 campaign.
- Whatever happens Tuesdaynight, Mike Pence sees
a larger hand at work in the country.
There seems to have been acultural slide, obviously,
for decades in this country,and along comes Donald Trump.
God using imperfect people toaccomplish His perfect will.
What do you make of what'shappened in this country
since he's become presidentand how you see this divinely
providentially playing out?
- Well, I believe as everypresident from George Washington
and forward believed in therole of providence in the life
of this nation.
And I really do believe that the prayers
of the American peoplehave made a difference,
and even in these dividedtimes, I really do believe
those prayers are a pathway toheal our country and continue
to move our nation forward.
- [David] The nation willsoon find out what direction
that means for the next two years.
