good evening. i'm ann notarangelo. a new field poll shows tight races in two state-wide contests with many voters still undecided. in the race for lieutenant governor, san francisco mayor gavin newsom has a slight lead over incumbent abel maldonado. in the attorney general race, steve cooley has 39% and carmelo harris has 38%. and don knapp on how the analysts are reading the results. >> reporter: san francisco mayor gavin newsom is five points ahead of state lieutenant governor abel maldonado in a new field poll. that's beyond the margin of error but not so far ahead the mayor can relax says the poll director mark decamillo. >> we've been seeing that gavin newsom has had an advantage over maldonado in this race in each of the previous polls that was the case. and we're seeing it again in this case. but the lead is not comfortable. it is very close. but it is a lead nonetheless.
it is outside the margin of error. >> that's why i'm going the route of the public utilities commission. >> reporter: maldonado won public support in his role as acting government in the aftermath of the san bruno gas line explosion. and decamillo says maldonado may benefit from late movement among latino voters but the contest between the attorney general and steve cooley and camilla harris is too close to call and they're separated by one point. givens on the death penalty may play a role. >> is there any moral ray on your conscience with being such a supporter of the death penalty. >> no. it is the law. >> harris has not sought the death penalty in any case since she was d.a. but says she will if elected attorney general. >> i am personally opposed to the death penalty but i will follow the law. >> i think whoever wins los angeles county will probably win this election. also, the nonpartisans are in play, and they're very closely
divided in terms of voter preferences in the attorney general's race. we are seeing a gender gap. it appears that harris is now appealing to larger segments of women. cooley, larger segments of men. and so it appears these contests may well be decided by the undecideds. the independents. and those who identify with the candidate by gender. and decamilla notes that newsom appeals to woman. democrat jerry brown began a three-day campaign tour in his hometown of oakland today. he appeared at a rally for the oakland congress woman barbara lee. brown will fly to appearances around the state for the next several days from eureka to san diego and appear at get out the vote rallies organized by state labor unions. meg whitman was in orange county promising jobs and fresh ideas and had events in san diego county and in sacramento, and she will be in cupertino tonight. both candidates are trying to

halloween party in san francisco's castro district again th we have a reminder for you, there is no halloween party in san francisco's castro district again this year. city leaders are promoting a home for halloween safety campaign. they're encouraging people to stay in their own neighborhoods to celebrate. and violence in past years ended the gatherings. the fourth year in a row with no official halloween party in the castro. >> of course the kids are out trick-or-treating tomorrow evening. what will we find? >> last week, when we looked at this, i thought it was a spooky forecast. but i'm not feeling so spooky anymore. >> good. >> looking good around the bay area. clouds out there right now. even a couple of scattered showers trying to show up outside. but not much. it really isn't going to be much overnight tonight. widely scattered showers if we
see any at all. and high def doppler picking up on some of the moisture and not much showing up there, toward the peninsula, we're seeing a couple of scattered showers in over the bay but just a light one, and that's what we're going to find throughout the night tonight. and maybe into early tomorrow morning. and for the most part, tomorrow, just a couple of passing clouds, and the temperatures are going to stay mild inland and 60s and low 70 s. and 60 near 70 degrees and out to the coastline, a little breezy and it looks like pretty nice weather. numbers around the bay area, in the 50s and 60s. a little cool, out toward the coastline but not bad. and around the state, warmer weather in the central valley around 69 degrees in fresno. partly cloudy and 67 in sacramento. but the further you go, the better chance you will have to run into raindrops. there is a cold front that is actually moving into the state. but the good news for us, the high pressure is building in ahead of it and it will send most of the moisture streaming up in this direction. we will stay dry for halloween and just a couple of scattered showers overnight for our skies. so some pretty good weather coming our way. with that in mind, it looks like overnight tonight, still a chance of a couple of raindrops
and computer models are trying to pick up on that just a bit. you can see a couple of scattered showers as we roll the clock forward to 7:00 and beyond and most of that is located in the north bay and we have even tried to kick something in tomorrow morning. i don't think it will happen but plenty of skies making our way through the skies, and as we roll through the day, it doesn't look too bad and the skies part a bit with more sunshine and the temperatures start to warm up and it looks like trick-or-treaters heading out and looking pretty good. and 69 for a high in livermore. and 67 and partly cloudy skies in santa rosa. and it should be about 69 in san rafael. and 69 in san jose. and 63 in pacifica. looking out over the next couple of days. we have a heat wave coming. this one is truly indian summer. the first heat wave after the first frost of the season. the temperatures moving well into the 70s. getting near 80 degrees in the warmer spots inland. on tuesday and wednesday, with an offshore wind. that will clear you out all the way to the coastline. still some cool nights but warm weather is coming our way. and then it looks like as we head into the next weekend, more clouds on the way.
and there is a chance of showers returning in the bay area, as we look toward saturday. all right. how about those trick-or- treaters? well, it is going to be a little spooky looking out there. you have some partly cloudy skies. but it doesn't look like there is going to be any rain. temperatures in the 50s and 60s. it gives the kids an extra sweater or light jacket. cool outside but right now it looks like it is going to stay dry. that's a look at weather and here is gary with sports. >> thanks, lawrence. college football saturday saw a few top 10s going down and coach singletary with an appearance on letterman? it is about the bears of cal. and did they figure out how to win on the road? stick around and find out. sports is next. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
win last weekend, and they sh ey were at gary here for kim coyle. and talking football. >> football on saturday. why not? cal had an easy win last weekend and they should have because they were at home. winning at memorial stadium is not the problem. it is winning on the road. something they haven't done so far this season. the bears played oregon state. a team they have not beaten since 2006. first quarter, beavers running back chaquiz rogers takes the direct snap and a wide open kobe prince. and later in the first, it gets worse for the bears. kevin riley injured his knee and he left the game. no update how much time he will miss. as he gets carted away. back up, brock mansion, the most meaningful action of the
season. 138 yards. and a touchdown late in the fourth quarter. oregon state led 28-0 at the half and put it on cruise control in the second half. rogers has over 100 yards and three touchdowns. the beavers blow out cal 35-7. cal is averaging 47 points a game at home and 14 at home and the defense has given up 8.5 games per game but 36 points on the road. and less than packed house to see san jose state and new mexico state. and jordan techla, look at that pass, that is awesome. late in the fourth. he airs it out to jaloll beachham for the go ahead score. five seconds to go. final chance for the aggies. >> rolls out to buy some time. getting pressure. throws it. touchdown aggies! >> part spartan fans, sorry about that, new mexico wins on the final play. the spartans fall to 1-8. tragic news out of south bend earlier this year,
deckland sullivan died when the 50-foot tower he was filming practice on toppled over from heavy winds. the irish holding a moment of silence before today's game against tulsa. the final minutes. the pass is picked off in the end zone. the golden hurricanes win in south bend, 28-27. notre dame falls to 4-5. they're ready for halloween. this guy is not happy. should be very happy. iowa hosted unbeaten michigan state. and check this play out. curt cousins throws it and pitched back it a buddy and thanks, man, i will find an opening and going in for the score. look at him go. 72 yards for the score. and makes it into the end zone with a dive over the pylon. one of three picks for iowa. rickey stancey threw for three touchdowns. the hawkeyes blow out the spartans 37-6. and big red, 14th ranked nebraska taking on sixth ranked missouri. the corn huckers have a 24-0 lead and never looked back. roy hello junior runs for three touchdowns and a school record
307 yards. hello end zone. sorry. i mean there is going to be a lot of corny stuff. exactly. so one week after knocking off number one oklahoma, missouri goes down and nebraska wins 31- 17. nba news, warriors guard stáef curry will not travel with the team for the game tomorrow night. and he reinjured his ankle during last night's win against the clips. the warriors outscored the clippers and cruised to a victory. darrelle wright had a career high 24 points as the warriors improve to 2-0 for the first time since 1994. and latrell sprewell was the leading scorer at that time and they only finished 26-56 so let's not get too excited bought it doesn't mean anything. mike singletary is the only coach in the league with his own segment on the late show with david letterman. >> coach, if you had to, could you put your finger on the problem? >> here is the problem.
