ED HENRY (FOX NEWS CHIEF NATIONAL CORRESPONDENT): Think about what happened when the president had his event down in El Paso. No accident that he did it in Beto's backyard, perhaps. Some people were saying he was trying to knock Beto out early. So Beto has a counter rally. There was a dispute about who had more people and all of that. But two interesting things: One, Beto O'Rourke had this fencing around the stage where he was and everything and it's like OK, so you need a fence and security and all that around you, but you don't want a border wall. And then, remember, he did an interview after all of that in which he said, "I don't just want to oppose new wall, I want to tear down what's there." Tearing down what Barack Obama supported, Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, basically. He wants to go further extreme to the left on the wall than anybody else in this race. That's going to be hard in middle America.
