a number of topics we want to hit. taxing big business in san francisco, money generated goes to the homeless programs out there. where do you see this going on tuesday? >> we don't know. this is going to be a great marker for where san francisco is. how much is the city changing? is it willing to tax the wealthiest corporations to help its biggest problem? everybody says san francisco is changing. we'll see if there's a tech block of voters to vote against this. >> when it comes to statewide, prop 16 the gas tax repeal. governor brown will be there at 10:00. what do you think? there's a lot of money in this. >> yes, i think this is overturn supposed to put up money to help with this. it was supposed to turn out republican voters and it's not doing the job it was supposed to do so i think it's going down. >> we saga vin new sm there in

9:06 am
for more than a year. i was down there a year ago it all depends on who turns out but they have done a lot to get people to turn out. there's tons of volunteer energy from the los angeles area just like from here going to central valley. >> have you seen that number increase? ? >> here's what our prediction is. of the 7 house seats that the democrats are targeting throughout california, the over and under are two that will be flipped. one definitely in orange county and maybe another in orange county and maybe one in the central valley. >> you talk about the voter turn outs. california known for the midterm blues, not getting that many people to the polls. high numbers in contra costa county. >> i don't know, they're thinking about 56 or so% which would be incredible but still,
9:07 am
you're leaving more than 40% of the voters on the sidelines compared to 24% a year ago or the last midterm, it's an improvement on that. still pathetic. nationally, florida. there's a lot of tension not just on the governor's race but the senate race between bill nelson and rick scott. you say also georgia is a big one. >> georgia is a more significant race. that's the race where america could see its first ever african american woman as a governor anywhere in the 200 plus history. oprah is campaigning. i don't know how much that's worth but it definitely shedz a bigger spotlight on the race. stacey abrams is the democrat there. brian kemp is the sitting secretary of state. the interesting thing there is if there's voter problems. the secretary of state would be in charge of his campaign so that's weird. >> the vice president was also there campaigning for the republican candidate.
9:08 am
when it comes to the biggest issue people are taking with them to the polls, do you think it's immigration? seems like president trump is putting his chips in. the caravan and the invasion. the soldiers helping out border patrol agents or is it something else? >> that's what he's hoping it will be. he spent the last several days fear mongering and using false statements. to be honest, he's been very successful at it. the republicans looking very poor. they look like this is going to be a blue wave and a lot closer. he's been a one man get out the vote machine for the republican party and he's made these races closer by appealing to these very base intinths in the voters. i think it's very close. pelosi said of the top 60 races nationwide, it would be decided around 20,000 votes in total. some might not be 500 or 1,000

9:10 am
here not only in oakland but alameda and they are not only registered but highly motivated to hit the polls. >> what's motivating me to stop the donald trump madness. >> yeah. >> that's pretty much it. >> you want change. >> i want change. . >> plain and simple. >> yes, i want some honesty and reasonable discourse. >> do you think america finally feels that one vote does make a difference? >> i think a lot of people still don't. frankly turn out is still low, especially among younger people so i hope that changes. >> i think we're so divisive now so everybody is so hateful and so just at each other's throats. i want to see more balance. . >> well, it seems californians are very motivated to get out and vote. eigh that's 19 million out of 25 million.

9:22 am
patients. so then in 1984, 117 patients. >> the story of the first medical unit in the country exclusively designated to treat those dying of aids ab tells the compassion and care given to those faced with a mystery oakland film maker joins me now to talk about your film, thank you for being here. >> you grew up in the bay area and you were very young at the start of the aids crisis. what drew you back? >> the nurses themselves drew me back to the story. we're talking about a group of people who in the early days of the crisis when the source of the disease was still unknown and the consequences of contracting it was death, ran towards the danger when everyone was running away. they were so driven by mission. not save lives because they knew that wasn't possible but simply to provide care for
9:23 am
people who were spending their last days and weeks in the hospital and to put themselves at risk to do that was an inspiring story i felt drawn towards. >> one of the nurses said in the films he had nightmares he would contract a mystery illness and bring it home to his children. did they know they were making a big personal act feis or only now do they realize what they did in their relative youth? >> they were so driven to do something and contribute to these -- these were nurses that providers but activists and people who are upset about what they were seeing in hospitals about the ways that aids patients were being treated or not. that sense of mission and outrage i think supercreeded any personal considerations for their own health. >> there's been thankfully huge medical leaps in the treatment for those with hiv and aids. back in the early days you're
9:24 am
talking about a group of nurses who touched their patients, bathed their patients -- something as simple as hand lotion could make the difference between a good and bad day for these men who had very few days left. >> that was part of the story that moved me the most. this act -- the idea human touch could be an active radicalism and these nurses understood the power of media even in the early days and anme were conscious about touching patients with d holding them and demonstrating to people outside of the hospital and bay area that it was okay to touch people with aids. that was transcending their role as healthcare providers and made them leaders in aids care. >> back in 1983 not everyone had a phone that took video of everything. how did you find this incredible footage?
9:25 am
>> i have to give credit to our research team that did a tremendous job coming through the basements of news stations like this one and finding tapes that hadn't hasn't been touched for three decades and in some cases we had to restore tapes by baking in them and not sure how they restored it back to condition but we were able to it was very imperative from my point of view that we had to ha millimeter film shot to place viewers inside the halls of san francisco general during that time to make an immersive first person experience. >> nurses also had a political message back then but they weren't holding campaign signs or rallying. tell me about the work they did. >> the message was that human compassion is the most courageous human valley of all. these were nurses again who
9:26 am
didn't have any illusions about the difficulty of the disease that they were facing. these were not nurses trying to safe lives. they were providing human compassion at a time when there was a great deal of bigotry and bias against this community of people. these nurses were not gay protecting their own -- they were straight nurses, gay, white, black, female and male. these were people whose own backgrounds didn't have any bearing on their mission to help people and provide care. >> i've seen your film and it's incredible. it fills in the holes and questions i had as a youngster growing up in the bay area knowing something was going on but we didn't realize it until decades later. congratulations. the film is 5b. more information to get to sunday's screening at the castro theater in san francisco, you'll fand information on how to do that
