senator barbara boxer in fight for her life, and jerry brown, the democrat for governor. barbara was wearing her giants orange using the sports analogy to win votes. >> when i started out in politics, i was 6 feet tall, but those special interests having pounding on me and pounding on me. i want to tell you something, oakland. you're the key. you're the key to sending me back to fight for the middle class, to fight for jobs, to fight for these carpenters, to put them back to work. to stand up against the special interests, and here's what's really exciting, you know. the san francisco giants are on -- they're on track to beat the texas rangers. and we are on track to beat the texas polluters who backed my opponent. >> reporter: and, of course, jerry brown had a lot to say.
he says he's the tell it like it is candidate, and he also talked about meg whitman a little bit. he's here in his home stoun stumping for a vote. they hope the voters come out foam in big numbers. i'm cheryl hurd, number "bay area news." >> they're almost to the finish line now, and carly fiorina made his third stop in the last five days. she's trying to energize her campaign wus last day. fiorina ntwen o to declare we're going to have a great victory in less than 36 hours. for her part meg whitman was soe sounding optimistic saying her internal polls put her in a dead meet with jerry brown. she finished hundreds of miles
away hitting several campaign headquarters in southern california. both carly fiorina and meg whitman are running largely on their success at business leaders. what do their former workers think of them? scott budman found some honest reviews. >> if you give me the honor of being your next governor. >> reporter: we've seen the rallies and heard the ads. >> i'm carly fiorina, and a proved this message. >> with fiorina and whitman making the move from business to politics, one thing has largely been missing. the voices of their co-workers. >> this is what people have to say about their experience within the organization. >> reporter: honestly.com is a website devoted to reputation. it has recently seen a lot of ratings about these two former ceos. >> meg whitman and carli fiorina
are trying to take the jump to take that reputation and using that as a rationale for why they would be good governmental leaders. >> reporter: a lot of people take the time to comment on what it was like to work for them, away from the canned speeches and tv spots, this might be the purest endorsement or criticisms you can find about the candidates. >> we see some people who had a low opinion of her performance when they worked with her at ebay. we have some folks who have nothing but amazing things to say about her and her abilities as a leader. >> they're running on the business success. here's a way to find out what people inside the office have to say about them. scott budman, "nbc bay area news." >> larry joins us now. this is more of a show of i've got the stamina to finish this thing. it would seem the die is cast into this weekend, wouldn't you
think? >> it's purely get out the vote. for the democrats it's critical, much more than for the republicans. we've heard about the enthusiasm gap this year. the democrats are working hard to get it out, close it up, and nail down as many seats as they can. >> the last polls were field polls in the race for governor and u.s. senate. both of the trailing candidates who would be whitman and fiorina saying no, no, no. don't believe that. our internal polls say we're neck and neck. what do you think? >> you can't let your supporters down. democrats have done in nationally in washington, all day long. our polls show we're neck and neck. you do this because you want to make sure that you get as many of your voters out as possible, but you don't want to risk other seats down the line. it's very important to get that get out of vote going as much as possible. >> we're going to analyze how these campaigns were run for a long time after this election.
have you seen any surprises when we're looking at the key races in this state? the biggest surprise for me, tom, has been the way carly fiorina has run her campaign. fiorina stayed on the right and tried to frame barbara boxer as the candidate to be pushed out without really framing herself very well. that allowed boxer to come off fiorina, and now the center is up for grabs. >> if the polls are accurate, we can assume there's a republican majority in the house. the senate looks good for the republicans as well. if that's the case, do we have a logjam in washington for the next two years, or are we likely to see more get down because there has to be xwroe miz. >> a lot depending on the leadership of both parties. it can go either way and you can have gridlock or cooperation to make each side look good for 2012. let's remember one thing.
if republicans come out ahead, as some people say, you're going to have now a real visible target for the president. no longer can the republicans be the party of no. they have to be the party with a platform. that will allow obama to engage with them in ways he hasn't been able to the last couple years. >> midterm losses helped bill clinton in his re-election bid. >> he won re-election. >> we'll see you tomorrow. count on "nbc bay area news" for complete election coverage. at 8:00 p.m. when the polls close we will kwe begin conch o channel 11-2. at 9:00 right here on nbc bay area, the nbc news political team begins its coverage of the national races followed by a special 11:00 p.m. broadcast with our complete bay area and california election coverage. lawyers for a california man who pleaded guilty about getting a military medal are making an interesting argument.
they say falsehood sometimes has value. to argue that falsehoods can spur the search for truth. it's schal leng the the valor act and the other challenge is in colorado. some tense exchanges today in a washington, d.c. courtroom as gary condit refused to answer certain questions in the murder trial of shand chand ra levy. he refused to answer saying he was entitled to privacy. he talked about the last time he saw her and how he was trying to help her get a job. prosecutors admit they lost time in their 2001 investigation because they focus odd condit as a suspect overlooking the man now on trial. alcohol worse than cocaine
and heroin. they've made you laugh for years. we have pry view ahead of the women of "snl" reunion. good evening. chief meteorologist. a great start to our week as well. temperatures in the low to mid-70s from the coast right down to thenouth bay with san jose at 75 currently, dropping off into the 60s. coming up tomorrow more clear and sunny weather for voting or. . @
now that the city council members are out of jail, will enough appear at city hall tonight to conduct a meeting? by law at least three of the four remaining bell city council members must be present to conduct city business. three of the members are among eight current and former bell officials charged with looting the city of more than $3 $5 miln to inflate their salaries and benefits.
on the agenda tonight debate about a recall election to remove four of the five members. drives could pay more for parking tickets in san francisco. the state budget signed by governor schwarzenegger includes a $3 surcharge on parking penalties to pay for court costs and obligations. now the city must tack on on extra $3 per ticket. that's a $3 million hit to the san francisco municipal agency this fiscal year. budget problems have forced that agency to cut services and increase fares. alcohol worse than heroin or crack? a new study says drink sg more dangerous than 20 other drugs. researchers say it's because it's so widely used and has major impact on society because of deadly drunk driving accidents. it found that alcohol, heroin and crack were the most harmful
to other people while heroin, crack and methamphetamine for the most harmful. we have a tease here in game five. >> did we expect anything else? it is the giants after all. they should clench today, but they can't make it easy. in honor of tonight we go back to 1954 the last time the giants were king. they're rookies, but you'd never know it by watching this postseason. the randy moss air ray in minnesota is over again. confused in you're not alone. we have the latest in sports. good evening. giants orange covering the bay area tonight. we'll have details on the clear and cool skies coming right up.

for 30-plus years in between women have made their mark on "saturday night live." >> whether i was in the show, i was always appreciating i can't believe i'm here. >> many of the female stars. >> nora dunn, lorraine newman, tina fey, molly shannon. >> they got together to shot a two-hour special that airs monday night. in some cases it was a reunion. for others it was a chance to see women from different eras of the show. >> there's something about it that just feels like holy moly. i can't believe i'm part of this group. >> if the performers are separated by time. >> my favorite character of all time is mary katherine gallagher. >> they're forever linked by having lived life in a pressure cooker. >> only people on "snl" can truly understand the emotional strek trum involved with the
show. >> it's not only the journey that binds the women of "snl." >> i love being here. this is my home, really. >> it's also the laughter. >> i can see russia from my house. >> mark barger, nbc news. >> you can watch the women of "snl" starting at 9:00 right here on nbc bay area followed by "nbc bay area news" at 11:00, of course. we'll look at the weather right now. a nice forecast for most of the rest of the week. >> certainly. warming up, kind of unseasonably warm out there. mother nature in the giants spirit right now with orange all across the bay area, you guys. 69 degrees right now. winds northwest at 8 miles per hour. that wind out of the northwest is all it it takes, and it clears that fog out here across the coastline of the san francisco bay. that's what happened today, and we also have warming aloft. temperatures right now are comfortable out there and 69 in san mateo and currently 72 in
livermore. with clear skies tonight, temperatures cool off with plenty of 40s from the coast to the inland spots. tomorrow on election day, no excuses for not getting out to the poll when is t it comes to e weather. right now the pattern looks active on the satellite loop. we have a system out here pushing throughout washington and also oregon, but that cold front is going to continue to head to the north and it's going to dissipate over the next 12 to 18 hours for us. high pressure is going to move in at the right spot to keep you warm here across the bay area for tuesday and wednesday. for tomorrow that means temperatures inland going up to the upper 70s. comfortable and nice for october. for wednesday it stays warm and also clear. let's look at the east bay at 6:00 a.m. tomorrow morning. temperatures near 50 degrees, and by 11:00 a.m. sunny skies and 65. looking good on voting day again tomorrow on tuesday. as you wake up tomorrow morning, temperatures in the mid to upper
50s throughout the east bay. as for tomorrow on our tuesday, 79 in evergreen, 77 in san jose, and right up the peninsula temperatures in the low to mid-70s from redwood city to san mateo for san francisco and 76 in oakland and right into the north way we look at temperatures in the mid to upper 70s. morning time on the weather channel on cable. you can see in our seven-day forecast, it stays sunny and dry and gets warm. low 80s inland wednesday and thursday. upper 60s and low 70s at the coast wensd and thursday, too. into sunday it looks like a chance of showers, but overall the next three days looks like nice parade weather out there. >> wednesday especially. >> just saying. >> you can say it now, jeff. >> i'm watching the game right now.
there's a lot of exciting stuff going on right now. do we have a bit of history on the horizon for bay area sports? we'll know the answer for the next couple of hours as the giants try to close out the rangers in game five bringing a world series title to san francisco for the first time since they moved to the bay area in 1958. while a championship would be something new for the city, it's not new to the franchise. back when they hailed from new york they won the series in 1954 when they swept the cleveland indians pulling off the upset against the heavily favored american league champ. that's when willie mays made the catch, and dusty rose was clutch at the plate. the giants wrapped up that series on october 2nd at cleveland stadium. happening 56 years ago? marilyn monroe married joe dimaggio. how about this? a half gallon of milk cost you a
