RUSH TRANSCRIPT:

COOPER: "David that's where your focus is now. There was a lot of concern I think among supporters of gun safety, gun control, and people who are at the March that after the March that sort of interest would wane. Focus is on mid-terms. Is that right?"
HOGG: "Exactly. And right now what we are trying to do we have the ambitious goal of getting 90% of high schoolers registered to vote by June. I think it's something we can do. There is over 26,000 high schools across perk. We need every one of them to sign up through head count to create their own voter registration vote to ensure kids get out and vote regardless of opinions. I think one thing we can support on both sides of the ace sell voter participation. Right now 18% of 18 to 24-year-olds participate in mid-terms and that's unacceptable."
