"abolish the public schools." he even called our schools "insidious" and "socialism." as families struggle to raise their kids, to provide a good education, harmer bragged, "we can design a plan to dismantle them." david harmer is just too radical. we need jerry mcnerney. protecting local schools from devastating cuts. he's a moderate, endorsed by the stockton record, the independent, and our local teachers. i'm jerry mcnerney, and i approved this message. our state has a huge deficit. meg whitman's plan will make it billions worse by eliminating the capital gains tax for wealthy investors, including herself.
6:12 am
economists say her plan will "rip a hole in the budget" and is "deeply flawed". analysts for the l.a. times say whitman's plan is a "pure handout" to the rich creating a "huge risk" to schools and public safety. jerry brown's against this unfair giveaway because it will take billions from our children when we can least afford it. get california working again-for all of us. come on in, and i'll give you a free quote. quote and compare in about 8 minutes. now, that's progressive. call or click today. crack down on smoking. they've sent a resolution to the f-d-a, new this morning the board of supervisors in contra costa county wants to crack down on smoking. in fact, they sent a resolution

[ male announcer ] with jerry brown, it's just one dishonest smear 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.

6:16 am
state budget cuts are crippling my classroom, so i can't believe the sacramento politicians cut a backroom deal that will give our state's wealthiest corporations a new billion dollar tax give-away, a new handout that can only mean larger class sizes and even more teacher layoffs. but passing prop 24 can change all that. prop 24 repeals the unfair corporate give-away and puts our priorities first. vote yes on prop 24, because it's time to give our schools a break, not the big corporations.

6:40 am
that there was a news conference here in san jose yesterday at the santa clara county government offices where immigrant right groups as well as local politician got together to send a simple message. if you are a legal immigrant and you are registered to vote, do so next tuesday. the fact of the matter is many immigrants have found themselves the target of not only recent legislation in arizona but also a series of negative campaign commercials. we spoke with a congresswoman who said it frightened legal immigrants from turning out on election day and says that's unfortunate. >> we are a nation of immigrants. we have to have laws we enforce but to allow people to create a climate fear is not good for the country or community. every vote counts. >> reporter: that message was echoed by others at the news conference. many saying that if we want to create a tolerant society, then voting is one of the best ways
6:41 am
to do that. a recent report this month by the pugh hispanic center is republican immigrants are more likely to vote. matt bigler for cbs 5. >> thank you. it is 6:41. world series fever, have you caught it? we'll have a live report from our sister station in dallas, texas and the friendly wager we have with them. >> pinpoint weather is sponsored by chase sapphire. unlimited rewards, exceptional experiences.

next round of "quantitative easing" to spend billions over the next few months. the fed may buy as much as a trillion dollars worth of u.s. treasuries right off the bat figuring that that large purchase will lower borrowing costs particularly for corporations so they may use that money to fuel future takeover activity but they are not getting that according to that report. the stock market is heading lower along with the report on durable goods orders for september. while they rose 3.3%, that was mainly fueled by a huge order in airplanes for boeing. when you take that away, durable goods orders actually fell by 1%. they have declined in computer sales. report on manufacturing, one of the better parts of the economy but it's showing signs of slowing in the past couple of months. right now the dow is lower by 63, nasdaq down buy 1, s&p off by 5. get ready to look for some changes in your yahoo email account. the company is going to roll out changes big makeover for
