4:12 pm
hope folks i want to level seven. what could happen on election day if we don't turn out in historic numbers to vote? no. on this recall, we could go up a cloak, covid clip and just a matter of weeks. if we don't take this moment seriously and turn those. ballots back in the political boogeyman closing in on. newsome was also standing outside the private event. fellow democrat kevin past brass, california needs a new leader. we need a jfk style leader who's looking at common sense solutions for solving our homeless crisis. our water crisis are fire crisis. a recent survey usa poll conducted for several southern california media outlets finds a majority of the 1100 respondents. 51% want, newsome recalled. republicans overwhelmingly favor the recall, while democrats opposed by a 3 to 1 ratio path, ralf leads a crowded field of 46 candidates to replace newsome for one year until the next gubernatorial election. he's currently trending at 27% we've
4:13 pm
got all sorts of problems in the state. many of them have been exacerbated by this governor in the last two years. republican larry elder leaves the gop hopefuls with 23% of poll respondents, his policies. cause high crime, more poverty, bad schools, an attorney, author and conservative show host elder held his own virtual campaign push virtually at the same time as newsom's private appearance. one of the many things i intend to do when i become governor is to declare a crisis on homelessness. and unleashed the private sector to build low cost housing. the front running candidates all tout plans to tackle education, homelessness and crime. recall ballots are in the mail this week, and by next week, all eligible californians will have the tool to make a choice about the next direction of the golden state. we need to focus in on the task at hand. the recall election is slated for september. 14th if you have not received your ballot in the
4:14 pm
mail by next week, contact your local registrar of voters. and if you don't want to vote by mail in person voting starts on september the fourth, then we get to do this all over again in a year. we're live in san jose jesse gary ktvu fox news. we'll head back to you. all right. thanks so much, jesse. something good to look for in the mailbox. well, gubernatorial candidate caitlyn jenner is campaigning today in southern california yesterday she spoke with alex michaelson for our political show. the issue is michaelson asked jenner if she were governor, how she would handle the current covid surge. right now. we have to follow the science. there is, oh, between the science, okay, the economy we have to take the economy into effect about the effects that it has on the economy if you completely closed it down again. and public health, right? you have to balance that, um right now. i see so
4:15 pm
much of gavin newsom using covid to shut the place down. jenner is on a month long campaign tour around the state. there's no word yet on when she'll be in northern california. there will be more with caitlyn jenner, political strategist bob trump and mike murphy, congresswoman maxine waters and speaker of the house. nancy pelosi. that's all this week on the issue is which airs on sunday at 6:30 a.m. right here on ktvu. alright let's talk more about the recall election here in california and where we go in the coming weeks for that. we're joined by joe gary foley, senior political writer at the scent. francisco chronicle. joe good to have you on here on this friday afternoon, obviously mike mibach yes. newsome locked in a tight race here to try to hold onto his seat. and as we saw today in san francisco, he's kicking off this series of campaign style events all across california. we also find out that we're going to see some democratic heavy hitters speaking out on
4:16 pm
the governor's behalf, including the heaviest hitter of all, i guess you could say the president as well as the vice president. is this all going to be enough for the governor to get enough? democratic voters engaged here and defeat the recall. well that's certainly what he hopes and you know when you have that number of democratic leaders in san francisco, some of them who don't agree on a lot of stuff standing behind newsome, you know that the campaign is very concerned about. turnout among democrats and that's what they were harping on today, they said. we need to turn out democrats and they were. they have been very concerned. we've seen the polls. they say that republicans are almost twice as enthusiastic about this recall as democrats, so the newsome campaign is spending $6.5 million on a get out the vote effort. 5000 volunteers across the state. they sent out 17 million text messages. they're trying. the newsom said today that this would be the biggest get out the vote campaign that the state has ever seen. we'll
4:17 pm
see if that's enough because right now many democrats are still asleep on this recall. yeah, there is that enthusiasm gap that we've certainly discussed before. let me ask you about this question of how governor newsom supporters should handle the second question on the recall ballot. obviously, this came up once again today, the governor asked about it. newsom's camp has continued to urge people to leave that second question blank and simply vote no. on the first question. vote no on the recall. i'm curious your take. on this job. how risky is this strategy? potentially if let's say the recall is successful, and then you have a large number of democrats who sort of sit out that second question adult weigh in on a potential replacement. well there's a couple they want to keep this message as simple as possible. it's essentially vote. no, you know, because they're concerned about what happened in 2000 and three of the last week call where there was baby sitting, then sitting lieutenant governor cruz
4:18 pm
bustamante was on the recall replacement list and some voters were confused. the belief goes among many democrats that they're like. whoa! guess i can vote for him. it will be okay. and it was. it was a confusing that so they're trying to simplify things for voters and just say vote no. and forget it because there are no major democrats. on the replacement list. it's uh we have several major republicans, but no no major democrats. let's talk about i guess we're going to call him the apparent front runner here among the potential replacement candidates, and that's conservative talk radio host larry elder. he held a news conference today as well. didn't take any questions from members of the media. i should point out here, but he also did not appear to recent debate. he at some point, joe, he's going to have to get out there and answer some questions. on his specific positions and his policies at some point, right? well, uh, you think so, if he was a serious candidate, he would and it would be sitting
4:19 pm
down for major interviews with people. but right now, that's not happening that thetake ques. that's that's very unusual. but remember, he has he's been an entertainer his his life. we've seen what happens when we have, uh president like that. who came? it was an entertainer and came from the world of reality tv shows. and had no political experience. it's new. it's very difficult to jump in and assume the job, leading the world's fifth largest economy with no experience. that's what l a is trying to do. plus he has many positions that are out of the mainstream of where many californians are. he believes in zero minimum wage, not not what it is now but zero he is a very much opposed to a woman's right to choose to have an abortion or not. he in the past, he's coming along on this, but
4:20 pm
he's in the past. it's called climate change a hoax. these are these are positions that are out of the mainstream of most californians. hey, joe, as we wrap up here, do you think governor newsom wants larry elder to be the leading contender among republicans because he is the easiest to tie to donald trump? 1000% i think he said the name elder about five or six times and in san francisco and outside his event, and he keeps saying larry elder is the big leader here, and it's a way to. essentially it scared many democrats into voting because if there are twice as many california democrats in california's republicans. if they can turn out their base by saying, this is what's gonna happen. then a. newsome s a shot at retaining his governorship. the key is turning out those voters. we have to leave the conversation. they're always appreciate your time that is senior political writer at the san francisco chronicle, joe gary foley have a good weekend, joe. you too. bye. thank you. smoky skies are
4:21 pm
expected to hang around through the weekend. the bay area air quality management district extended its air quality advisory this morning. the advisory will now remain in effect through sunday, prompted by wildfires that continue burning in california and oregon officials, however, say the air quality is not expected to exceed the federal health standards so no spare the air alert will be issued. add in weather. thankfully most of that smoke will be in the upper levels of the atmosphere. but still you might notice some haze and of course, some of that the smoke could drift closer to the surface is something to be watching as we head into the weekend. also just with this pattern we will have. we could have poor air quality because we kind of have this hot dome setting up that will really have an impact on the air quality as well. so there's actually a lot to track as you can see, we have the fog, tropical clouds and hazy sky so the tropical clouds leading to a slight chance of a shower for this evening, prime rarely, coast side hazy skies. you heard about the air quality advisory. and then we have the typical fall got toward the coast. keeping those

4:39 pm
pentagon said that the afghan government needs to take responsibility and that its military has more troops more air capacity to overwhelm the taliban. how likely do you think it is? that the afghan government and the military can maintain control after u. s troops leave. i think the afghan government they're completely took over. they already sold afghanistan to the taliban, and that's why they cannot do anything and they are just waiting to taliban come and take over the capital. unfortunately this is what's going on and whatever is happening in the in the afghanistan all these crime all these genocide because of international community. this back to afghan people. they never they if they had any plan or something, they're supposed to let the people know they're supposed to let these

4:50 pm
in 1991, bono went five and one as the starter and endeared himself to the faithful. oh, no, still has fond memories of that era. it was a special place. i was here for five years won one super bowl won a super bowl on each end of me being here and went to the nfc championship game four times in the five years that i was here, so that's some pretty good teams. dennis brown played defensive end for the niners from 1990 to 1996. brown was an imposing figure playing with a very good 49ers defense. i specifically remember brown, making the life of opposing quarterbacks miserable. i was lucky i came in with a very good defensive line, and i was able to learn a lot from these guys and guys in here, charles haley. you know ronnie lott. you know these guys, guys like this. it just made it really easy for me to be an nfl defensive lineman. here's a good friend of yours. you might know this guy. it was an obvious point of pride for bono and browned to show me the team's heritage as represented by this breathtaking collection
4:51 pm
everywhere you look there is 49ers history from all eras from the beginning to the present. it's only fitting that here in the silicon valley, the museum takes advantage. of the latest technology. this is the all time roster. so anybody you're looking for? you can come in here. you just type in their name, and that person comes up. let's get boned up here. look at that young cat. oh my god, steve. my hair was all black at that time, too, bro in the museum. they have set up coach. bill washes office, complete with the actual desk. he used my favorite photo in this section is that photo of their of mike white. bill and #### for meal. the photo below. it is the same three guys when they were all together at stanford in the sixties. oh, my goodness. everything here actually belonged to coach walsh, including the film projector and the old school three ring binder playbooks. we just have to carry around binders like that. we used to have camp in rockland. around another corner is the room with all the memorabilia. here. you see
4:52 pm
classic jerseys, many of them signed. there are the famous gold jackets, helmets and more looking looking and remember the catch. it's perhaps the most well known play in 49ers history. when joe montana found dwight clark in the final minutes of the nfc championship game in 1982. the ball from that legendary play lives here for all to see. perhaps the most awe inspiring thing i saw at the museum is when i walked into the room where they keep the five super bowl trophies. oh my goodness! you talk about you know the team and kind of what it means to the bay area, and i think it's about it's about this is the championships on steve. this is what it's all about right here. you can also see the super bowl rings just like the ones the players received after winning it all. if you're a big 49ers stand, you should definitely consider making the trip to this museum at levi stadium in santa clara,
