♪ great work everybody! now freshly remodeled, your target has never been better. she's against banning assault weapons... and that's reckless and dangerous. she's for risky new oil drilling that could threaten our jobs. fiorina's plan would mean slashing social security and medicare, which would devastate seniors. and she'd make abortion a crime. no wonder fiorina is endorsed by sarah palin. carly fiorina. just too extreme for california. [ boxer ] i'm barbara boxer and i approve this message.
6:13 pm
senator barbara boxer appears to be fending off republican carly fiorina. here's alease kirchner with the story. >> reporter: four days ago in the campaign in a new field pole shows barbara boxer in an eight-point lead against fiorina. today, she fired back, saying there's no truth to the latest numbers. out of the hospital and back on the campaign trail -- >> candy for everyone who votes for carly. >> reporter: fiorina stumps with businesswomen today. there is nothing sweet about her message to barbara boxer. >> no barbara boxer, the stimulus bill hasn't worked. no, your policies of bailing, borrowing, spending, taxing are not working either. let's face it, she's had her
6:14 pm
chance. she's been there 28 years. >> reporter: in a recent field pole, the democratic incumbent may not be going anywhere. 49% of likely voters support boxer. compared to 41% favoring fiorina. one in ten voters remain undecided. >> the truth is, the democratic party is trying to rescue barbara boxer because they know she's going to lose on november 2nd. >> reporter: in recent weeks, the president, first lady and the vice president all came to town to support boxer. the parade of politicians fiorina says proves her democratic challenger is desperate. >> we have a whole set of internal polls as well as a whole set of external polls that say this race is very, very tight. it's winnable and that it comes down in many ways to turnout. >> reporter: alease kirchner, nbc bay area news. dianne feinstein spoke
6:15 pm
against prop 19, the measure to legalize marijuana. she had no comment about this latest field poll. in southern california today, a routine campaign stop for meg whitman turned into a class with state workers who tried to drown out her message at a glendale bakery. whitman did engage with one demonstrator. >> i'm wrong? that's why you should not be governor because you don't even know the facts of the thousands of teachers and nurses that are going to be a factor. and then it's going to be the students and the teachers. are you aware of that? >> i think people want more civil dialogue. this is not what this is about. >> the california nurse's association has been following whitman, staging protests and parading a character costumed as queen meg. the union bus pulled up today shortly before the candidate did and larry, i can't help but think maybe the jerry brown campaign watched this today and winced just a little bit.
6:16 pm

6:17 pm
oil companies. we have the american beverage association. a long list of major hitters. anheuser-busch, $1 million. these people have put in about $15 million. they want this to pass. then they won't have to worry about 2 3. >> in the time we have left, we have an interesting development with prop 23. it takes us up to fresno county where on the ballot is the old language that was struck down by a judge. and the old language says that major polluters are involved. the wording was order changed by a judge. it did not get changed for this ballot. it's supposed to say major sources of emissions. it didn't. >> the what can we do about it. >> that's a big difference. not much can be done about it, unfortunately. we're talking about 380,000 voters here. that can sway it in one way or another. hopefully the difference one way or another will be beyond that. >> proponents are saying that
6:18 pm

a whole different story. the rain continues to move on through. it's been wet for the entire evening on 101 for nevada all the way up through hillsburg and fairfield and the east bay, some passing showers as well. danville, walnut creek saw some rain. we were talking about this rain moving into san francisco, over towards richmond and into oakland as well. won't last very long. now we're using this kind of futuristic product. we're going to start here at 6:00. going to put the time line in motion as we do, you can see the rainfall that we're expecting. we don't want to see the yellow or red. through tomorrow morning about a half inch of rain is possible. once we get into the evening on saturday we begin to see the rain showers coming to an end. the trick or treat forecast looks good. temperatures in the 60s, partly cloudy skies. that means not a lot of rain is in the forecast unless you're well north of the bay. we take it over to texas. game three looks like great
6:48 pm
weather. raj is out there. he says the weather has been fabulous. let's take it to tomorrow afternoon, 4:00, the showers come to an end. high pressure builds in from the south. 66 in los gatos and 62 degrees for a forecast high in san francisco. and 56 in santa cruz. seven-day forecast, rain sticks around tonight. we see showers moving on and off, especially to the north of the bay. overnight, showers moving into the south bay and into the east bay. then all the rain comes to an end by tomorrow afternoon for a nice end to the weekend.then then again, like last week the sun returns just in time for the workweek. >> perfect, perfect. all right. >> certainly not a rainout in texas where the giants will take on game three, game four, game five. >> this day next week the baseball season is over. there could be a parade this day next week if things go that
6:49 pm
long. you never know what we do know, after enjoying another night, today the giants were right bakt at at&t park and once again hitting the road. the players and their family all boarding buses this morning outside the park. they headed to sfo where a flight to texas awaited them. then a full day of workouts and press conferences in arlington. the giants have a commanding 2-0 lead in this world series. they know things can change quickly with the games moving into enemy territory. and enemy territory is exactly where we find raj mathai. raj? >> good evening, laura. we have no enemies. everyone is friendly here in texas. we are here. the giants are on the field a short while ago. we know this team so well, they have a very quiet confidence going into this. yes, they have a 2-0 series lead. it's not that cliche, one game
6:50 pm
at a time. these guys believe they can bury the rangers. they got off the flights, came right to the ballpark and here they go. they're expected to practice for maybe 90 minutes. they cut it short. at this point in the season everyone pretty exhaust. while the giants practiced, after they left the field they went inside the clubhouse. here's the look inside the clubhouse. pretty interesting. everyone kind of ready to go, all the jerseys are hung up, ready to go for jonathan sanchez who pitches tomorrow night. all the players showering up. they are heading to their team hotel. one of the duties the giants have to do after they leave the field in the clubhouse, they have to sign dozens of balls and bats, for sponsors, charity and all sorts of giveaways. it's a mandatory deal. they come in there and sign bats and balls before they head to the hotel. as for what they're feeling, we checked in with matt cain. he's on cloud nine after that amazing performance last night.
6:51 pm
we asked him what he did. went right to his family. >> i went to my parents had a hotel room. i went down there and hung out with them and my brother and his girlfriend and my wife. we took it easy and tried to soak it all in. >> it's been nice to have the outburst we did. we know who we are and we're a team that has to do little things to score runs. >> it's not a life or death situation or anything like that. it's a game that you'll work hard and play hard to win. >> bengie molina, the giants' former catcher. you know the rangers will come out strong for tomorrow night. it's their first world series game here in texas in terms of the rangers. it's not a gimme by any means for the giants. we mentioned jonathan sanchez. if you want a downside to all of this, if you want to look really hard, here we go. jonathan sanchez's last start, the ugly incident. he melled down, got knocked out
6:52 pm
of the game in the third inning after that back and forth, the near brawl with chase utley. jonathan sanchez in his own words says he has something to prove in terms of tomorrow night. our coverage here on nbc throughout the weekend, throughout the season, we are your giants station. we're teaming up with our good bud disat comcast, the only place you can get croup and kype. flip over toç comcast for themn television. back here in the park in arlington. it's an interesting place here. it's massive. it looks massive. you look out into center field, those are not luxury boxes. instead, those are small businesses. there's jewelers, dentists, lawyers, pretty interesting scene here in arlington. those are small businesses out in center field, something that the oakland a's want to do with their new ballpark in san jose i
6:53 pm
just got off the flight. i am fully in jeans and tennis shoes. okay? >> we don't want you to be working too hard. the suit, we need that tomorrow. it's gameday. one giant hurdle was cleared today for jamarcus russell as he tries to break back into the nfl. the question remains, does the nfl want to be broken into by the former number one pick? no answer on that front but what we do know is the raiders former qb will not be headed back to court on felony drug possession charges. an alabama grand jury has declined to indict russell after he was caught with a drink containing codeine syrup at his home back in july. russell, reportedly exciting about the development and looking forward to return together nfl. not so sure that will happen. as for his former team, tom cable may have been able to fake them out all week. it's actually going to be jason
6:54 pm
campbell making his third start. gradkowski's shoulder not good enough yet. let's see if the raiders offense can keep this going. >> did he ever. >> a lot of stuff to keep going. >> thanks, laura. we'll be right back. amento polis will give our state's wealthiest corporations a new billion dollar tax giveaway. lobbyists have the ear of people who are just thinking about wealth. when you cut the budget, then you cut these students' opportunities. passing prop 24 can change all that. prop 24 repeals the unfair corporate giveaway and puts our priorities first. vote yes on prop 24 because it's time to give our schools a break.

go, giants. [ male announcer ] with jerry brown, it's just one dishonest smear
6:59 pm
after another. and another. just a dishonest politician, trying to hide his record of failure. the real brown plan? more spending on out-of-control state pensions. more favors for the big teachers union, blocking education reform. more job-killing taxes and regulations. more of the same old failure from sacramento. job killer jerry brown. always more taxes, more spending, and more lost jobs.
