tv   KTVU FOX 2 News at 5  FOX  June 6, 2022 5:00pm-6:00pm PDT

5:00 pm
watched closely around the country. good evening. i'm julie julie haener mike mibach, but it's not the only race that we're watching for you. we do have live team coverage on what you need to know. entering tomorrow's primary ktvu political reporter greg lee, as some of those ballot highlights. but we begin in the newsroom. with gate reviews evan sernoffsky and the impact the election could have on the criminal justice reform movement. that's right, mike. we started looking at this story after hearing chaser boudin, branding it a republican led recall and his supporters have said it's a test case for the national criminal justice reform. and the progressive prosecutor movement, but experts we talked to say, like most san francisco elections, things aren't so simple and they point exactly to these other elections that are going to be on the very same ballot. as this district attorney recall rob bonta, for example, uh, gavin newsom, for example. all have led on state, national criminal, state and national criminal justice best
5:01 pm
practices. but the d a here and a lot of allah or not allies, but foes in the conservative media are actually in agreement on their messaging leading into this recall effort. they're both pointing the finger and saying that this isn't this is a should take. we're going to get back to this in a minute. i'm sorry. the package. we have a problem with julie back to you. we will get to you in just a little bit, evan. thank you. alright for a look now at some of the other races on the ballot and the themes that we are seeing so far, we're joined now by our political reporter greg lee. so greg, let's start with the numbers registered voters have had their mail in ballots now for weeks, but the returns are very low so far. just how low are we talking julia incredibly low of the about 22 million ballots sent out only about 15% of been returned on this election eve. by comparison, that's incredibly low, even for a nonpresidential year. for example, at this point in the
5:02 pm
attempted recall, the governor newsom about 40% of ballots had been turned in. experts say we are on pace for about 30% total turnout and lots of reasons, including voter fatigue, not only from recent elections, but with all that is going on in the country. and the world now, all this with the caveat that people still have another day to turn in their ballots, and certainly others could be planning to vote in person. tomorrow polls are open until eight pm and there's nothing that says this will be indicative of the november general election turnout. but certainly this is something we will be watching closely because, like we said, those numbers are incredibly low. yeah okay. so greg, seven states in total will hold primaries. california is the only one with a unique format. what do voters need to know? this is important for voters to understand as the results start to come in in 2010. voters approved proposition putting in place a top two primary system. the idea was that it would allow moderate candidates to be competitive in a hyper partisan environment, so
5:03 pm
in all the state and congressional races. the top two vote getters will advance to the november general election. this is regardless of party or affiliation, for example. in the closely watched state attorney general's race that even talked about you have incumbent democrat rob bonta. two republicans eric early and nathan hochman and an independent in ann marie schubert. the sacramento county d. a. all that matters tomorrow. is who comes in 1st and 2nd. and we will wait to see what happens there. alright, and voters will also see an odd format for the u. s senator race, which senator alex padilla is heavily favored in voters will choose twice who they want to send to dc. yes so for those 15% of voters who have already seen their balance and open their ballots, governor newsom appointed alex padilla to ville. vice president harris seat that was temporary. first on your ballot, voters will decide what to candidates will move on in november to compete to serve the remainder of the term, which ends on january. 3rd 2023, then voters will decide on a second question from more than
5:04 pm
20 candidates to see which two will move on to november. to complete a six year term that begins on january. 3rd is a little confusing, but as you said julie recent polling showing padilla and incumbents like governor newsom, rob bonta are all favorited to win their races and keep their current positions and we will be watching it all tomorrow. alright, greg, thanks for the update. all right back now to the newsroom and evan sernoffsky , who is following that other hot race, and that is the recall race of the district attorney of san francisco. chase a boudin evan mike chaser. boudin is branded this a republican led recall in his supporters have said it's a test case for the national criminal justice reform and progressive prosecutor reform movement. but experts we talked to say, like most san francisco elections, things aren't so simple. district attorney chase a boudin on monday dropped off his ballot at city hall in san francisco. voting on prop. eight that's the easy one. there's some
5:05 pm
propositions that are challenging. that's the easy one. on tuesday, the department of elections will start counting ballots that include prop h, the recall measure that will determine his fate in office. do not let republican billionaires by our election messaging has been consistent. a vote for recall is a vote against progressive causes like ending mass incarceration and being tougher on prosecuting police misconduct. we see republicans from coast to coast in virginia and philadelphia and chicago and los angeles, attempting to roll back the victories. at the ballot box of democratic reformers, but experts point out that less than 7% of registered voters in san francisco, a republican, and those who vote for the recall will largely be democrats very much. a democrat on democrat fight here in san francisco, is an executive board member of the state democratic party who recently came out against boudin. he said boudin's policies are more extreme than his progressive predecessors.
5:06 pm
and he isn't doing enough to hold violent offenders accountable. you have multiple multiple examples of decisions, individual decisions that he's made that really do hurt. the reform of men at the end of the day, boudin is lagging. but the d a, has picked up key endorsements from major newspapers in the city's democratic party experts expect it will be a close vote really what the recall says. is really specific to san francisco. max szabo is a progressive political strategist who helped run former d a george gaskins campaign in los angeles. he said the recall will have little impact on criminal justice reform. despite what some people are saying across california and across the nation what you're going to see on tuesday as you're going to continue to see voters select candidates and that are reformers and reform minded, he said. if boudin is recalled the very well may start campaigning to get his seat back in november general election again, you're going to have a more progressive electorate. you're also going to have a war of ideas right?
5:07 pm
instead of what we have right now, which is chaser running against themselves. mike i asked boudin if he plans to run in november if he's recalled, he said, he's keeping his eye on the ball, which is tuesday's election reporting live in the newsroom. evan sernoffsky ktvu fox two now on this one, and not just here in the bay area, we'll find out those numbers tomorrow night, evan, thank you. and be sure to stay with ktvu for extensive coverage of tomorrow's election coverage will begin at four in the afternoon on air and online and you can also follow complete election results as the night goes on in the south bay, san jose police detectives are looking for clues in the case of a safeway employee who was shot and killed on the job. investigators say the employee manuel cornejo confronted a shoplifter prior to being shot. this happened at the safeway, located on hamilton's avenue that's in the willow glen neighborhood of the city of san jose ktvu. south bay reporter jesse gary lying tonight with us outside the store with the latest on this homicide investigation, jesse good evening. my good evening to you

5:09 pm
around 3 30 sunday morning between the suspected gunman and cornejo employees. cornejo was trying to prevent the man from stealing alcohol from the safeway store on hambleton avenue in willow glen. his confrontation led to the suspect firing at least once, killing many before running off in this case, it's very, very delicate because it was late at night. there were not many people inside the store at the time that it occurred. and as we continue on with the investigation, we're hoping again that folks will come forward and help provide us with information. investigators are checking surveillance video from surrounding homes and businesses in hopes of finding an image of the suspect monday morning safeway center statement to fox to that reads in part safeway is mourning the tragic loss of one of our associates were deeply saddened by this tragic incident . our hearts are heavy and our thoughts are with his family were sending out deepest and heartfelt condolences to them. as detectives worked the case, a sidewalk memorial on hamilton's avenue grows as another family

5:11 pm
and they can do a search that way as well. mike alright, jessie. gary live in san jose tonight, jesse. thank you for that. and the city of fremont homicide. investigators are hoping an increased reward will help them solve a 15 year old cold case. in april of 2000 and 7 19 year old aaron anthony bro was found fatally shot in an apartment complex parking lot on fremont boulevard. he lived in a nearby complex with his family. police say errands relatives raised an additional $10,000 to contribute to the existing $50,000 reward. investigators would like anyone who might have information about the case to call fremont police. some tense moments in petaluma today after an explosion and fire it happened inside an airport hangar at petaluma municipal airport in sonoma county. ktvu is tom baker is at the airport now where investigators are trying to figure out what started the fire in the first place, tom we have to remember now this is a secure airport. and if you take a look back at the hangers are you will see one that has scorched doors, and
5:12 pm
that's the one where the fire took place. and what we've seen all afternoon where folks coming by who have the neighboring hangars to find out if their problems have been multiplied by this fire. fact is, it doesn't seem that they have, but for the guy who owns it. it's all over, but the crying and he's got plenty to cry about. about a quarter to noon monday morning, the petaluma fire department got a call about a fire and possible explosion in a private hangar at the petaluma municipal airport. in the hour of the smoky fire burned, the owner lost a vintage, two seat piper cub airplane as well as the vintage corvette sports car. one observer told me that the plane caught on fire inside the open hangar first, and the fire quickly spread throughout the hangar, consuming most of its contents. fortunately the steel hanger did not allow the fire to spread to other adjacent hangars in the hangar itself. did not collapse. the airport director
5:13 pm
told me he could not speak until after the investigation into the cause of the fire is determined. now the reason that this was treated as a big deal is because he's airplanes have lots of fuel in them, and there are all kinds of other things that can burn inside these hangers and solvents and things like that. so the problem, of course, is that if you get a chain reaction going, you have a real real big problem. and there aren't homes to very far away. and there's lots of burnable land around here. so that is the situation. turned out reasonably well, except for the person washed that car and that airplane both real classics, tom vacar ktvu. fox two news. alright yeah. things could have gotten out of control quickly, tom. thank you. cracking down on a rising crime . l. a familiar face in oakland politics, says he believes he can reduce car burglaries also had the bay area getting some rare june rain. what the seldom seen site means for fire season. yeah we did okay with the rainfall there, two inches up in

5:20 pm
being asked to clear 30 ft. of space around their homes, clean leaves out of those gutters and remove grass and debris from under porches and decks. every household should have an evacuation plan, a place to meet and a go bag with enough supplies to get people through at least 72 hours away from home . the effect of yesterday's rain , minimizing the risk of fire is not really expected. the last for very long. gavin newsom still cool. nice to have it rained like we got two inches of rain up in the marine county watershed up around mount tam and junior is not a typical time for us to get showers, but we did. it does help the fire danger. but mike as mike points out stuff's gonna dry out real quick. but again, we bought ourselves a little time, which is fine with me. most of the rain did fall out in marin county. i'm showing you the numbers again only because two point oh, and on mount tam is pretty impressive, and it shows you the variability based on topography of the bay area. rainfall the microclimates if you will, so right, so melt down there it is two point. oh and you go. what? as the crow flies five miles, eight miles to san
5:21 pm
francisco, and you've got 0.23. it's incredible. so just that topography that marin headlands 2000 over 2000 ft of mount tam, just capturing that moisture and squeezing it out. santa cruz mountains didn't do as great with a quarter of an inch. but again, those showers will dry out quickly. the fuel moistures have come up that helps the ground. moistures come up. all that helps but will dry out pretty quick, especially this week with temperatures. by friday into the upper nineties, maybe some low one hundred's inland. don't think we'll see heat advisory or red flag warning, pretty sure we won't but it's going to be hot and dry. and so you know what that means for the rest of us and means for fire season. here is the plan the increasing temperature little bit tomorrow a little bit on wednesday more on thursday and friday. those were your two warmest or hottest days. if you will, and then temperatures trend down a little bit for the weekend. it's going to be not necessarily an offshore floats can be kind of continued north northwest wind. forecast and so it's not going to be a super dry red flag warning event as much as it is going to be just hot desert
5:22 pm
south or heat coming up from the desert southwest in the onshore wind, continuing coastal areas will stay kind of cool and the reason i bring that up is because it's with heat like that when you get the northeast wind with the super dry humidities going warm all the way to the coast. that's incredibly dangerous for fire. that is our september october really heavy, scary fire, danger wind, and that's not the case. so as you look at the winds right now, you've got 14 mile an hours and napa 13 in oakland and then sfo gusting to 35 miles an hour, so that's pretty typical. and again . you got 12 at hayward, 14 san jose so a little bit breezy onshore, and that's how it stays. here's the model. there's the football right. the red area offshore bodega bay for tomorrow afternoon about 36 miles an hour of around bodega stance in again onshore flow, even though there's going to be more warmth, and then we look into wednesday, same thing. watch that. watch the football developed bodega bay again. 33 miles an hour and then you see the contours as colors. that's typically topography. right. there's funneling, right? you see the
5:23 pm
finally going on up here around alejo and fairfield because the air gets pushed through there and gets flying out through the golden gate bridge. you see it, nicasio gap here up around bodega headlines. there's low lying areas out by the ultimate past. you see the winds pick up so windy conditions, but very typical for this time of year in temperatures that are going to remain on the warm to mild side tomorrow and then gradually stair step climb their way up to friday when we'll see some low 100 possible air quality is pretty good with this pattern. i'll see you back here. we'll do the full forecast that all right. we'll see you in a bit, bill. thank you putting young workers on a possible career path, the program providing opportunities for all in san francisco and coming up tonight at six. the future of people's park in berkeley has long been contested, and protesters are fighting to prevent what they say. is a historic site from being de

continue to change the world. hotel and office virtual conference will run through friday. telehealth visits grew in popularity during the pandemic, but these virtual doctor's visits could soon get pricier for a lot of americans. that's because an emergency health act started during covid is coming to an end. fox news, joy addison joins us now with the details. good evening, joy. hi julie. that's right. healthcare workers say that it was very convenient for them to be able to meet with patients from the convenience of their home and millions of patients use the service. during the pandemic. it's been helpful, but it also had its challenges. and now unless than five months the federal public health emergency act will end and this will make it harder for people on medicare to have those visits and have them covered. the pandemic presents many challenges to the health care system. we've had labor shortages, workforce
5:37 pm
changes significantly things it's been challenging is just trying to make sure that patients have good access to care, houston healthcare's doctor kristin bricker says this is where telemedicine became key during the height of the pandemic, doing a lot of appointments that weren't traditionally um, used by telemedicine just to make sure we were checking in on our patients. medicare paid for 840,000 telehealth visits in 2019, and this number skyrocketed to nearly 52.7 million telehealth visits in 2020 nurse executive named phillips overseas and addresses how hospitals are run, she says. virtual visits, help clear some of the patient backlog because doctors can use them for their regular patients and save their in person time for those who have been skipping routine appointment patients that are coming to our doors for care. being much more complex with multiple comorbidities telehealth does have its challenges, including cost and
5:38 pm
accessibility. medicare will only continue to fully covered telehealth visits intimate october when the public health emergency act is set to end. i think we should try to have a very uniform system. and that's used in order to make sure that this service is provided for everyone, regardless of their insurance coverage. there is currently no word on how these visits will be covered after this public health emergency act in for people with medicare and private insurance, and dr berger's also mentioned some concerns about people who live in rural areas and have relied heavily on telehealth and what they'll do when this ends. um here shortly in less than five months in houston, enjoy. addison ktvu, fox two news. still ahead tonight is the deal dead what elon musk decided to do instead of tweeting his concerns about taking over twitter. also the new message from moscow to ukraine's western allies as the war enters a
