11:23 pm
shop. shelley: this mother said her family was targeted because her son is black. mike: when the rain runs, plus how much we could see. >> no one covers new hampshire like we do. shelley: we begin tonight with the state's drug crisis. and a record number of overdoses in october for one new hampshire city. good evening. i'm shelley walcott. tom: paramedics call it an alarming spike. last month, american medical response says it responded to 45 overdoses. seven of them were deadly. wmur's cherise leclerc is live in the studio with more on those numbers. cherise: the regional director of american medical response to the worst art of all this is the fact they can never really pinpoint why aren't win the overdose spikes will happen.
11:24 pm
granite state, so does the number of overdoses reported in the state's second largest city. >> we've been trending in the high 20's throughout the summer so this is a very alarming spike of overdoses. seven of which were fatal. cherise: nashua ended the summer in september with 26 overdoses, a statistic that nearly doubled to 45 last month. and overdoses are up this year overall. american medical response has already responded to 310 overdoses this year, 35 people died. compared to all of last year, in which amr responded to 250 overdoses, where 19 people died. amr regional director chris stawasz attributes the spike to a far more potent synthetic painkiller. >> fentanyl is the killer drug we encounter. people heart used to wearing -- using certain amounts of heroin
11:25 pm
them. cherise: fentanyl also requires more extensive life-saving measures than heroin, forcing first responders to use more of the overdose reversal drug narcan. >> we have to use more of it and certainly the time we have to administer it is short, but it is effective if we can get to them in time. cherise: a stressful and time-consuming crisis for first responders. >> it's a eager burden on all public safety agencies. we are still working on a number of different issues. in the city of nashua what we will not let this continue, i can tell you that. cherise: manchester saw a much smaller increase in overdoses in october, up 25%, compared to nashua's 73% jump. stawasz says manchester's safe stations program is making a difference for that city. live in the studio cherise leclerc wmur news9. tom: now to commitment 2016, it was night two of our granite
11:26 pm
faced off for the last televised debate before election day. higher education, the drug crisis and the presidential candidates are just a few of the issues republican senator kelly ayotte and democrat, governor maggie hassan went head to head on. shelley: moderator and wmur political director josh mcelveen begins our team coverage tonight live from saint anselm college. josh: good evening to you guys. we talked about the price tag so staggering. we're talking north of 100 million dollars, but at the end of the day, this is about candidate themselves, their voting record and plans to solve the problems we face in this state and in this nation. not to mention that this is also a tight race, it's too close to call according to the latest granite state poll. this debate tonight was
11:27 pm
a number of different issues. for recap, let's go to adam sexton who is standing by. adam: some moments of contention but for the most part, the candidates did stay mostly in their lanes tonight, content to race side-by-side in their their way. even in a discussion of cyber-security, these two u.s. senate candidates so unwiling to fully embrace their respective parties presidential nominees find themselves pulled back into the orbit of trump and clinton. >> wheu cyber-security, the democratic nominee, hillary clinton, that governor hassan has followed on so many issues and failed to call out on this issue she set up a private server, transferring classified information. >> i have said repeatedly that her use of emails was a mistake, she has said so as well, she has apologized, i think that's appropriate. adam: in turn, when given the chance, governor maggie hassan
11:28 pm
ayotte's support for trump that lasted until last month. >> she said, on 35 different occasions, that she supported him. she called him a role model for our children, and then when the political winds seem to change, that's when she changed her position. >> she can use her talking points all she wants on this issue, but the people of this state know that i'll stand up for them no matter what. adam: there was plenty of quibbling both ways over familiar talking points, but on fi troops in iraq. however, on gun rights vs gun control big differences. >> i appreciate so much how important it is that we keep guns away from criminals and terrorists. i also believe it's equally important that we stand up for the 2nd amendment rights of our citizens. >> we should be closing the loopholes in our background check systems so that terrorists can't buy guns online and at gun shows, and even after the tragedy in orlando, senator ayotte had the opportunity to vote to close those loopholes,
11:29 pm
adam: another rare moment of agreement came when these candidates said who they'd like to see win tonight's world series game seven tonight. they both replied the chicago cubs. the cubs were ahead a little while earlier and now it's tied up in the ninth inning. eventually at the cubs lose, it's possible the new hampshire senate race could be to blame for continuing that curse. josh let's go back inside to >> afterwards, candidates usually go into the spin room. kelly ayotte declined to do so but maggie hassan did take part and she stayed on message. >> we can continue to work together in this state, bring a new hampshire approach down to washington where people roll up their sleeves, get things done across party lines and build a brighter future where people who are working hard to get ahead have a chance to not only get ahead but can
11:30 pm
josh: i'm joined by my colleague, he was on the panel this evening asking some of the questions. i know it's tough to listen to everything, but what was your biggest take away? john: the whole country innocence is watching because control of the senate could ride on this race. they mixed it up as she and also on the second amendment and they had a very important discussion about the supreme court. but as you noted earlier, there really wasn't a lot of wild, swinging at tax. josh: talk about that a little bit, because they had to come into this knowing that no one is trailing badly in this race. neither of them really tried to
11:31 pm
where one person is seven or eight points behind, the underdog is going to go all out to try to knock down the front runner. both of these candidates consider themselves the front runner. they both think they are going to win. so they were feisty but they stayed within their message. josh: good stuff. now it will be u t in the race is. we have three podiums set up for tomorrow night. the first independent candidate in this debate. night number three of the granite state debate here it that's a wrap on night number two in the high-profile, high-stakes u.s. senate debate.
