((christianne klein)) >> and i'm christianne klein. the candidates to replace
11:01 pm
what is shaping up to be a very close election. ((dave courvoisier)) >> you just heard some back-and-forth over a potential government shutdown... the two also sparred over immigration, supreme court nominees, rising costs of healthcare... refugees and gun background checks. ((christianne klein)) >> on that last issue, the two could not have differed more. we are making all of these clips available to you on our website so you can watch them in their entirety. ((dave courvoisier)) our moderators for tonight's debate were 8 news now anchor denise valdez, univision anchor -t politics now co-host steve sebelius. ((christianne klein)) >> after the debate they broke down some of their more memorable moments from the hour: (( denise valdez: "coming right out of the gate when steve went after congressman heck for 'why did it take so long for to withdraw your support from trump' -- let me tell you, she wasted no time going after him on that." steve sebelius: "yeah, absolutely, that was obviously going to be one of her main lines off attack all night, it was definitely advantage for her because he waited so long. there were so many things that he had said up until now. it does look like political opportunism and she really tried to exploit that."
11:02 pm
tsi-tsi-ki had the tough job of trying to nail down some real specifics, we didn't really get there did we?" tsi-tsi-ki: "such a broad subject, we're talking about immigration. and the interesting part of this is they both are for a path to citizenship, they both are for securing the border and they spoke in a different voice when doing that. cortez masto said her grandfather was an immigrant. he said he had relatives that were from italy that were immigrants. however, she focused more on bringing people out of the shadows while we gotta fix the legal system on immigration laws, so it was interesting." denise valdez: "they both personalized that one a little bit. another one we had trouble getting a clear answer -- we were trying to get a dollar figure from them about how much you would raise taxes on the wealthiest americans. neither of them would really commit to a dollar figure, they said it was something they would have to do when they were elected and work with other people across the aisle, that sort of thing. there was an interesting moment, it was unexpected for us -- steve you
11:03 pm
them to raise their hands about government shutdown -- they both raised their hands." steve sebelius: "yeah they both raised their hand. i was wondering if congressman heck would raise his hand. what he was trying to say was he didn't take a specific vote to shut down the government. there was no vote to formally do that, although the votes that he did take led to a government shutdown and that's the point that i think catherine cortez masto came back to almost immediately. and in her candidate to candidate question she brought that up as well." )) ((christianne klein)) immediately after the debate our own shakala alvaranga tracked down the candidates backstage to see how they felt about their performances. shakala joins us live from canyon springs high school with more. shakala? ((shakala alvaranga)) >> christianne, both of the candidates were very content with how the debate went tonight. they understood what was at stake and the importance of tonight's debate -- we asked dr. joe heck and catherine cortez
11:04 pm
the former nevada state attorney had to say: (( "i will be standing up to the interest of the people of the state of nevada and he is going to be standing up for special interests." "born and raised in the state, getting around and talking to the voters, i want them to know that i know what it's like to work hard and i know the struggles that they're dealing with. it's our voices that we are going to take to washington.")) ((shakala alvaranga)) >> congressman joe heck's campaign said heck had several big moments of the night, they called him the clear winne call out cortez masto for her allegations. (( "the difference is real world experience and tackling those tough issues and the demonstrative record of being able to identify a problem, come up with a solution, and then get that bill passed in a bipartisan way." "we've traveled around the state and asked people what are the issues most important to them, jobs in the economy, national security, health care and education.)) ((shakala alvaranga)) >> cortez masto's campaign called heck's speech quote
11:05 pm
proved herself to be a problem solver tonight. reporting live shakala alvaranga 8 news now. /// ((dave courvoisier)) it will be interesting to see how this debate sways poll numbers, if at all. an exclusive poll for 8 news now conducted between october 10-th and the 13-th showed cortez masto with a narrow lead over congressman heck. we spoke with the pollster who compiled the numbers. brittany edney joins us live with the newsroom with more on the methodology. brittany? >> dave, this poll was conducted by j-m-c analytics and polling... it shows cortez masto with 40-percent of support among likely voters to heck's 35-percent. the margin of error is four percent. john couvillon orchestrated the poll and told us what stood out to him: (( john couvillon / jmc analytics and polling: "you know, the thing that i found interesting was the fact that joe heck's numbers have dropped, because what has happened since his criticism of donald trump, those who are supporting donald trump are not sticking by him to the same extent that cortez masto's supporters coming from the clinton supporters.
11:06 pm
trump people is costing joe heck approximately the margin by which he is behind cortez masto." )) ((brittany edney)) >> a random sample of 600 respondents was chosen from nevada voter rolls. j-m-c analytics polled a breakdown of likely voters with a breakdown by race, party, gender and so forth that's representative of state demographics. while cortez masto is leading in this pol she's a sure thing to win by any means: (( john couvillon / jmc analytics and polling: "while clinton and cortez masto are leading in the poll, the thing that's crucial to understand here is that their margin of victory, so to speak, is dependent on occasional and non-voters. while they turned out heavily and turned nevada blue in 2008 and 2012, it's not at all certain if that will repeat itself in 2016 and if it does not, the chance that both of those democrats would carry the state is not a certainty."
11:07 pm
>> 16-percent of respondents were undecided... so we'll see if tonight's debate helped or hurt either candidate more than the other. live in the newsroom, brittany edney... 8 news now./// ((dave courvoisier)) thank you, brittany. like you said, those undecided voters could be the difference in this election. we invited several of them to watch the debate with us tonight. patrick walker shows us who impressed them: ((patrick: well we are checking in with our panel of undecided voters coming in. everybody was undecided coming in tonight.. right... masto and joe heck.. a show of hands, who has made a decision.. it's ok. so a couple of undecided.. so who is voting for joe heck? that would be one, two, three out.. so 10 votes for joe heck. masto? one over here, so i want to start with you mark.. why did you want to go with masto? (mark) i think she is more grounded on the nevada issues,
11:08 pm
(patrick) all right cathy, i want to check in with you, who do you think won tonight? (cathy) i think joe heck did because he stayed on topic. he didn't go on the attack of his opponent and deflect the question by attacking his opponent. he had very concise ideas and he had a plan and he stuck to it. (patrick) well we wanted to ask the panel about what they heard and didn't hear. heard about gun control, who thought they heard everything they wanted to hear? what specifically rang out to you about guns or otherwise? (voter) joe heck is who i stand what specifically rang out to you about guns or otherwise? (voter) joe heck is who i stand for when it comes to the gun issue.
11:09 pm
and it's ridiculous to put people on a list with no due process with no real reason to get off the list or to get on the list. keeping guns out of their hands isn't really an issue because like he said.. there's only a 1,000 people on that list. law abiding citizens aren't the problems, criminals problems. so i stand behind joe heck. he's rated positive with the nra and i think we should all take that into consideration. (patrick) this debate was the only one between the candidates and there was a lot we heard. but there were things we didn't hear. who wanted to hear more? i want to come over to you wanda, what didn't you hear tonight

an nfl stadium and possible future home of the las vegas raiders is a signature away from becoming reality. ((dave courvoisier)) >> governor sandoval has final say on the plan for a nearly two-billion dollar stadium on monday... after a week-long special legislative session gave it the go-ahead. ((christianne klein)) >> the vote passed by the narrowest margin possible. reporter mauricio marin and sports director chris maathuis have team coverage from carson city. mauricio: some are calling it one of the biggest plays ever made in nevada history. ultimately lm but the decision didn't come without controversy. vo: assemblymembers heard from both sides of the argument before casting their vote. ultimately it came down to 28 yes votes and 13 no's....barely getting the two-thirds vote required. a lot of issues held up the vote including a controversial n-dot roads report that suggested possibly giving preference to construction projects near the stadium over other work around the valley. those who voted for the stadium plan say it will help generate thousands of jobs. another winner in all of this is the las vegas convention center which is getting over
