any of his primary opponents today, save for one. former new york city mayor michael bloomberg, who will not appear on a ballot until super tuesday, but who has been hitting the air waves with countless campaign ads. >> he's definitely trying to buy an election, and it's not fair. he should have had to go to all of the other states like iowa, new hampshire, he should have had to be there. it's not okay. >> reporter: while sanders supporters in 2016 were known for the phrase bernie or bust, they had a different tune today if sanders was not the nominee. >> i'd vote for anyone that's up for the democrats, so yes. because we do have to get rid of trump. >> reporter: now before super tuesday, of course, there's nevada and south carolina. expect to see lots of candidates in nevada and here in california in advance of super tuesday. live from richmond, andria borba, kpix 5. >> thank you for that report. by the way, today's bernie sanders rally first streamed

still, it doesn't matter. the japanese government was taking everyone off the ship testing positive for the virus. >> reporter: dr. bloomberg says concerns like smith's are valid, but because the people that tested positive for the virus didn't have symptoms, they were less contagious. >> they're less likely, it's not impossible, but they're much less likely to be recirculated compared to other viruses. >> reporter: smith says the little uncertainty he has about being able to leave the cruise quarantine is outweighed by the decision he and his wife made. >> i take that little anxiety over the horrible trip, what was supposed with that supposed rescue. >> reporter: all 14 people on the flights to travis and texas are now in nebraska, where they're receiving further treatment. a park in santa clara

mis the nation's oldest black-owned design and construction firm. before mike, we were desperate. there were not a lot of opportunities for black-owned businesses to compete. mike saw that and he leveled the playing field for black-owned businesses. over the years, we have heard a lot of talk. but mike came in, and he actually did something about it. and that's how mike will get it done as president. i'm mike bloomberg and i approve this message. we have breaking news

in spring training. a world series caliber team coming off back to back playoff appearances and destined to take that next step. >> looks great on paper. everybody is coming back with more experience and usually that means that they'll be better. >> they're a very good team with good talent and players you can wrap yourself around which is, i mean you have to be hooked on that. >> reporter: the rotation is solid, the line up stacked from top to bottom, and check it out. the gang is all back. when's the last time you could say that about the a's organization? >> that's pretty cool. since i've been here, this is the least amount of turnover we've had. >> it feels like we're picking up where we left off. that's how you win a division. >> reporter: you've had some great teams. is this your best team? the bar has changed here in oakland. >> if i say yes, i'll get a call from josh donaldson about
15 minutes after i leave here now. >> reporter: josh donaldson, former athletic. his teams won back to back division titles but never went beyond the division title. i have to say, the vibe in the a's clubhouse was different. it's like they belong in the postseason. it's like they deserve to be in the world series. that's the feeling i got in the a's clubhouse. >> they've gotten so close. >> what's the vibe over your shoulder in that restaurant?

of course he's standing in front of a fountain which is about the only thing we'll see falling from the sky, fountain drops. a sprinkle or two possible sunday, or not. that's the only time we have even a prayer of getting any rain in the bay area the next several days. right now the numbers are still fairly warm for this time of night in winter. it's 61 degrees at concord and in san francisco 57. but in terms of rain chances next to nil. a little bit of awe bump in chances in san jose thursday and friday, and even those fade as we have low pressure in the gulf, but even seattle will have sunshine tomorrow and wednesday. this is the 24 hour change from last night to quarter after 7:00 to tonight at quarter after 7:00, and all numbers are at or 6 degrees warmer than last night. so numbers came up today. pretty much flatten out tomorrow, but about 6 degrees warmer than average. futurecast shows that clear, clear, clear, and watch this.
a few high clouds coming in by tomorrow at sunset, and they're out as quick as they came. a mostly starry night tonight. no fog. mostly sunny skies for tuesday and unusually mild. the numbers remain above average through the end of the week. mostly dry ahead. a few bumps in chances for a few drops, and that's it. forecast highs for tomorrow pretty much an encore performance of today. the crescent moon very late at night or early in the morning, tomorrow morning. 68 at santa rosa and around ukiah the numbers will be in the mid-60s. in the extended forecast, we're looking for things to
stay dry all the way through next week probably. thank you, brian. here's what you missed if you're just getting home. bernie sanders was here in the bay area and other candidates are in nevada tonight. early voting is underway in the silver state ahead of the caucuses. ndisadin neda with joe biden not far behind. meanwhile former new york mayor bloomberg is rising in the polls, even though he won't be on the ballots until super tuesday. meanwhile president trump is expected in beverly hills tomorrow for a fund raising gala this week. he'll also attend a top dollar fundraiser hosted by larry ellison in palm springs. and desperation in hong kong over the coronavirus. 3 men were arrested trying to steal 600 rolls of toilet paper from a market. it's in high demand along with other household items. right now many stores are restricting the number of necessities people can buy.

putting term limits on congress, washington insiders went crazy. they said term limits are bad, that they'll break government. what a joke! congress is working fine for politicians and corporations, but it's not doing anything for real people on climate, health care or gun safety. the only way we get new ideas is electing new people, including a president willing to shake-up washington. i'm tom steyer and i approve this message.

events. >> the people in camps, cages, separating families, that's not the right way to approach it. since we've experienced it, it seems all the more important for us to speak out. a new state law is looking to crackdown on party houses by going after the homeowners. senator glazer is proposing a bill to raise the fine after a deadly shooting at a halloween party in orinda. >> the owner of that property definitely knew it wasn't a family reunion. it was a bunch of college kids getting together to throw a rager. >> senator glazer says he plans to introduce his bill when the legislature reconvenes tomorrow in sacramento. up next, why you'll soon be able to feel just like a disney princess on your wedding day.

when mike first became mayor, there were places where black and brown children hadn't received an education for 30 years. mike said, "those are the kids i want to give an opportunity". he increased teacher's salaries. he increased the graduation rates by 40%. he made schools safer all over this country. children aren't getting a quality education. mike is going to fight for all the children. i saw him do it in the largest school system in america. he's going to do the same thing in this country. i'm mike bloomberg and i approve this message.

bloomberg: i'm mike bloomberg and i approve this message. tis better than the criminal in democrathe white house.esident we all have progressive plans to address the big challenges facing our country. what makes me different, is i've been working for ten years outside of washington, to end the corporate takeover of our democracy, and to return power to the american people. i started need to impeach to hold this lawless president accountable. i'm proposing big reforms like term limits... ...a national referendum... ...and ending corporate money in politics. as president, i'll declare climate change an emergency on day 1. and, use those powers to finally address the climate crisis. and, i've spent 30 years building a successful international business. so, i can take on donald trump on the economy - and beat him. i'm tom steyer and i approve this message - because there is nothing more powerful than the unified voice of the american people.
