3:01 pm
first walking up toward the thomas & mack, we were showing last night, how the whole parking lot is ringed in those shipping containers. i've never seen that before and the security presence. you notice right away, both with local metro officers and with plenty of federal and police state here as well. a lot of guns and just a big perimeter around. the i.d.s and credentials are checked over i'm standing in front of the thomas & mack. this is set up for the media to do their live reports and live shows. you see the fox news team over there and the media here, somewhere between 2500 and 3,000 people from all over the country and all over the world. 28 different countries are here covering this debate tonight. so it's absolutely stunning to see that many people all focused here on las vegas and what is
3:02 pm
i know i've heard from a lot of viewers this week who are hoping this third debate will stick to the issues. you want to hear about healthcare and education and social security and all of the rest. but, of course, there's a lot of speculation it will turn into insames and -- insults and accusations in the media. i want to take you inside what we call the filing center and also the spin r w our jeff gillan is in there right now. >> reporter: hey, jim. how are you? welcome to the spin room where we're already getting spun by representatives of each of the respective campaigns. you are looking at our office behind me for the next eight hours. here's the deal -- the stage is now set and really all that's missing are the two people we're all waiting to see. hillary clinton and donald trump. the campaigns have their
3:03 pm
cavern of media. as jim said, there are about 3,000 journalists hear to witness the final cage match of the campaign. i caught up with one of america's top political journalists, dan balls of the washington post to see what he expects to see this evening. do you think he will come out swinging? >> i assume he will want to do two things. one, he will make a case agast for a change argument. that's his strongest argument but i think one of the things we'll see is whether she provokes him or he provokes himself, she's gonna have to answer some questions. i assume that chris wallace will have very tough questions for her based on the new information that's come out over the past few weeks. >> reporter: and that would be some of the e-mails released by wikileaks regarding how the
3:04 pm
also, her speech to goldman sachs got publicized. there may be a question about that coming up. we'll wait and see. coming up at 5:00, i talked with the head of the clinton campaign and one of donald trump's top advisers to get their take on what we'll see tonight. this will be a fascinating evening in american politics. jeff gillan, news 3. back to you. >> reporter: i can't wait. i know you can't either. it's fantastic to have a now we want to talk about the traffic issues. if you are not coming down to the debate, you need to know things are slow going around this part of time. jeff and i have been here for a couple of hours. so we didn't want into a lot on our way in. let's get back to the studio. jeff is tracking the traffic. what are you seeing? >> if if you are heading in and out of the thomas & mack expect days. between 4:00 and 10:00 p.m., you

you can see both directions of traffic are looking okay. a little slow northbound. southbound nothing yet. but the closures. >> into effect at 4:00 p.m. until 10:00 p.m. and up will see the 15 southbound and then the 215 inant out of the airport connector. the airport connector is slow. 42 miles per hour currently. and looking at the thomas & mack, already seeing indications of what's to come with people funneling their way to that well as maryland parkway. for alternate routes if you are trying to get yourself to the airport, the best way is to avoid 15 southbound and the 215 ache take that back route and make your way back. but even that will be a little bit slow moving. a lot of people converging on the thomas & mack for this big and final debate. as we continue our coverage,
3:06 pm
>> reporter: all right, jeff. thank you. and the predebate spin has been going on for days here in las vegas. it's -- as the candidates prep for their meeting here at the thomas & mack, their surrogates are doing the speaking for them. and harry reid took a swipe at donald trump before tonight's debate. he was speaking to a crowd down at a restaurant in henderson. reid said trump is fightening people with all of this talk about a rigged reid says united states is a nation of laws and the process will be fair no matter who wins. >> i think the only thing rigged i'm seeing is his mind. we should all be proud of what we have in this election system, and to have this man, who is -- who is doing everything he can to make america look bad, i don't get it. >> reporter: so senator reid is,
