Published on November 11, 2013

This is a rush transcript from “Fox News Sunday,” November 10, 2013. This copy may not be in its final form and may be updated.

CHRIS WALLACE, HOST: I’m Chris Wallace.

Election 2013 is in the books, leaving Republicans convinced running against ObamaCare is the key to victory.


KEN CUCCINELLI, R-VA., ATTORNEY GENERAL: This race came down to the wire because of ObamaCare. That message will go out across America tonight.

WALLACE: In New Jersey, a landside victory for Republican Chris Christie.

GOV. CHRIS CHRISTIE, R-N.J.: I did not seek a second term to do small things. I sought a second term to finish the job. Now, watch me do it.

WALLACE: We’ll talk to Governor Christie about his reelection and whether he’s now running for president.

Then, damage control over ObamaCare continues, as the president finally apologizes.

BARACK OBAMA, PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES: I am sorry that they, you know, are finding themselves in this situation based on assurances they got from me.

WALLACE: But is that enough — after all the promises, if you like your plan, you can keep it?

We’ll go outside the Beltway to hear from real people losing their coverage.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: They have increased the deductibles and sometimes increase the premiums as well.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: It wasn’t going to well over $400 month. It just wasn’t going to work at that high price.

WALLACE: And we’ll get to question one of ObamaCare’s big supporters, Ron Pollack of Families USA.

Plus, our power player of the week, “Fox & Friends” co-host Brian Kilmeade on George Washington’s secret spy ring.

Could we have won the war without them?

BRIAN KILMEADE, FOX & FRIENDS: I don’t believe we would have.

WALLACE: All, right now, on “Fox News Sunday.”


WALLACE: And hello again from Fox News in Washington.

Well, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie won re-election by a landslide this week. We’ll talk with the governor in a moment.

But first, chief political correspondent Carl Cameron with a look at Christie’s record and the challenges he will face if he decides to run for president.


CHRISTIE: I want to say thank you for making me the luckiest guy in the world.
