Ebola and all the terror it inspires is now the number one focus of the nationâ€™s capital. Chris Matthews has more with Rep. Peter Welch.
CHRIS MATTHEWS: Ebola steals the election. It's not only topic A, it's topic A to Z.
Good evening, I'm Chris Matthews in Washington, which is now ground zero for the Ebola fear. It's now official, Ebola is now the number one focus in the nation's capital, as well as the rest of the country where now it's the most watched news event, believe this or not, since the entire Obama presidency began. The most watched news event -- Ebola.
Politicians are at their battle stations, with many on the right calling for an all-out travel ban of anyone coming from infected West Africa. The call we're hearing is to stop all human traffic, period. And government experts are saying they're open to any step that will protect Americans.
