WOLF BLITZER (HOST): Republicans, they're reacting and pretty much in shock, as you probably have heard by now. Corey, some are saying you just can't spin this. There were gasps in the room when some Republican organizers were just hearing about this audiotape. Clearly the Republican Party is worried, especially about how this could potentially hurt what are called these down ballot races, Senate races, House races. Are you concerned the party can really run away for example from Trump right now? 

COREY LEWANDOWSKI:  Look, I don't think so. And the reason for that is obviously Donald Trump has raised the vast majority of the money that the Republican Party has to spend for the election. And again I believe Donald Trump is still the best candidate to reverse the downward spiral this nation is in right now. So you have to think about it -- you've got a leader who talks tough. He's been very bold. He speaks from the heart. People understand that. They know Donald Trump. That is what has attracted this massive amount of people to Donald Trump through the last two years of this campaign. They had the opportunity to find the perfect politician. What we don't know, and I'm not trying to change the subject here, we don't have any understanding of what Hillary Clinton has said in those meetings with Wall Street where she was paid for these speeches. She's never released those transcripts. For all we know, the same things are being said in that regard. I don't know if that's the case, and I don't think that the Trump campaign wanted this or knew that this was available or to come out during October. I'm sure that wouldn't be the case strategically. But what we don't know is what Hillary Clinton has said in some of these speeches because she refuses to release the audio. Do we have a bombshell in there and we'll find that out in a week from now? I don't know the answer. But the point is you've got two candidates in this race. One of the two is going to be the President of the United States, Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton. And you have to make the fundamental decision, do I want a tough, brash, bold person who's willing to say and do whatever it takes to save our country or a career politician? And I think the choice is very clear.
