ANA NAVARRO: I don't think we can survive a person with very bad character, a very bad person. It scares me, it worries me, it concerns me, what Donald Trump has brought out in the American people, the hostility, the division, people hurling anti-semitic insults at the media, people hurling insults at Hispanics, the mass misogyny. It's sad how far down the gutter this election has gone. As an American who loves this country, who loves the Republican values, who loves the democratic system, I just felt that I wasn't in a position to cast a symbolic vote. I wanted to cast a symbolic protest vote against both of them.

DON LEMON: Was your mom disappointed that you didn't write her in?

NAVARRO: Let me tell you something, my mother has been about to ring my neck for this entire election. First of all, she was very nervous and anxious every time I said I was going to vote for her (Clinton). Because I think she thought she could win. And then I went and said a bad word on national TV, that was mortifying so her. I'm close to being disowned by my mother. My mother is voting for a Democrat for the first time in her life, because she too is scared. One of my best friends, Anna Maria Gonzalez, they are U.S. Citizens, they are the parents of a 9-year-old girl Alicia, who wakes up in the middle of the night fearing what will happen to her parents if Donald Trump is elected. That's the kind of fear Hispanic children are having all over this country. I am not making this up, that's why I'm giving the names. I have people who call me and tell me that their son-in-laws, their daughter-in-laws are waking up with bad dreams at night, at the fear of what a Donald Trump presidency could mean for Latinos. That's why you're seeing the numbers. It's not the outreach efforts of Hillary Clinton, it's not the ground troop operation of Hillary Clinton, the reason Latinos are flocking to the polls is because we've had it with Donald Trump punching us over and over and over again for the last 17 months.

We've had it with the assaults, with the attacks, with the insults, and we are deploying to be the folks that stand between him and the Presidency of the United States.

It's important to remember what Ana Navarro has lost already in this election. Her job before Donald Trump was to help Republican congressional candidates with Hispanic and Latino outreach. She won't have much of a career after this election, and really has no choice but to stand tall against the man who ruined everything for her party and her profession.

Of course, Corey Lewandowski has to open his pie hole to say that since every candidate Ana Navarro has supported in the primary lost, she'll have a perfect record when Hillary "loses."

You go with that, Corey. See you tomorrow.
