governor and government we want in new hampshire. do we want a paid political operative that specializes in partisan politics? or someone that will look you in the eye and give you the straight story, be willing to bring all ideas to the table every time regardless of the political background. >> i am working very hard and i want people to know that if they give me the honor of serving as their governor i'll always put people ahead of political interests, that's why we usually work in new hampshire even when our national politics are sometimes a mess and that's i'll commit to doing as governor. reporter: both say they have several more stops to make tonight and that will continue tomorrow. live in concord, kristen carosa, wmur news 9. jennifer: the candidates for the house of representatives have been canvassing their districts today, hoping to sway the decisions of those who are still undecided. we are covering these two races for you tonight live from district two in nashua with mike cronin. reporter: the congressional

of the state the candidates and their top surrogates have focus on in these final hours. josh mcelveen is here now with the presidential nominees' final pitches directly to the people key swing state, new hampshire remained at the center of the political universe even after the first in the nation primary. donald trump has been here twice as much as hillary clinton, but the state is important to both when it comes to the pathway to victory. even libertarian candidate gary johnson could be spotted here from time to time, and all three made some time recently to send a message directly to voters watching this newscast. >> hi, i'm hillary clinton. i've spent my life fighting for
president i will take on the issues that keep you up at night, from the skyrocketing cost of college, to mental health and addiction the choice in this election is clear. i want toed by an economy that works for everyone, not just those at the top, with good jobs and good schools in every zip code. my opponent would like to take us back to trickle down economics on steroids, and stiff working families like those that he's mistreated his entire career. to choose to make our own health decisions, and i will defend not only roe v. wade but also planned parenthood. i'll work with our allies to keep us safe, and i'll take national security very seriously. so, new hampshire, i'm asking for your vote, with your help we will build a future where we stand together because, you know what, we are stronger together. thank you all very much.
special place to me, a very, very special state. it was my first victory, and you know what happened after that. so i'm honored to be here. i want to just tell you we're going to lower taxes, we're going to have strong borders, we're going to stop drugs from pouring into your community, they are pouring in, the single biggest problem from everybody i meet in new hampshire. so many friends, is the heroin and the drugs that are pouring in, we're going to stop it and we're going to help the people that have been so severely addicted. we military, we're going to take care of our vets, we're going to be very strong on the second amendment. they have people, as you know, my opponent wants to just absolutely weaken the second amendment. we're going to keep it strong and vibrant, so important. we're going to common core x, it's going to be out, we'll bring in education locally and we are going to make america great again, very simply, we're going to make america grit
you'll be very proud of your country again, thank you very much. >> the election is right around the corner. there is a third choice. libertarian candidates gary johnson, me, vice-presidential candidate bill weld. if philosophically speaking you are fiscally conservative, you can spend money better than the government, if you're socially inclusive, meaning let people make choicings in their own don't put others in harm's way, if you're skeptical about our military interventions make this world a safer place, if you believe in free markets, if you believe in free trade and that it will result in more u.s. jobs, not fewer u.s. jobs, then there is a third choice. and you don't have to guess at the choice. myself and bill weld both former republican governors that served in heavily democrat states, we were not wallflowers serving as
josh: after tonight the campaign is just about over and after all the ads, all the rallies and town halls, it's up to the voters to decide which message they believe in. josh mcelveen, wmur news 9. tom: very good. mike haddad in with a look at the election day forecast. mike: it's like the two minute warning, made it through most of the game and here we go. tom: it's been a very long game. mike: you know what, we've got warmer temperatures on the w but how much higher than the
imagine if hillary clinton wins the white house... then what? liberal carol shea-porter? progressive shawn o'connor? he'll be a rubber stamp, too. and you know their agenda: higher taxes. more government spending. and a weaker national defense. only frank guinta will put new hampshire first. that's the key difference in this race. frank guinta. he's on our side. i'm frank guinta
tom: state and local officials are working to make sure that everything runs smoothly at the polls tomorrow. jennifer: a large turnout is expected, expecting at the high school. traffic patterns have been adjusted and kra check in stations added. state homeland security officials say the emergency operations center will be active ated while the polls are open. they say they are also prepared for any possible cyber issues. >> our system is not set up so it could be hacked easily. we have paper ballots. so we're very fortunate here. we don't think that there will be a cyber concern during this event.
initial to local police. don't forget our website is packed with voter resources. before you head off to the polls, can you find out where the candidates stand on the top issues, read their biographies and learn fun facts about them. mike: beautiful looking monday out there, yes, it started off quite chilly, but a lot of sun did go to work, getting our temperatures back to average. but that's time up any more, we lost that about 4:30 this afternoon thanks to the clock change back to standard time this weekend. the high in concord, 52. record high, 78 set back on this date in 1938. we got the chill out there right now, wind are fairly light w. clear skies, dry air in place, temperatures will continue to fall off, well below freezing in the coming hours up north,
and then well below freezing later on tonight. lakes region back through plymouth, upper valley points south and southeast. and even near freezing at the coast. but also notice interesting tonight, atop mount washington, 36 degrees, already warmer than all the great north woods, because the air mass is really not all that chilly, it's that cold air that rushes right down in the valleys by evening. with that means tomorrow with any sun we'll boost our readings well above average, so get ready for a nice day. a lot of mild air back to our west. temperatures will be running at or above the average over the next couple of days. but certainly much warmer tomorrow than it will be on wednesday. and the reason for that, fair skies all day on tuesday for election day. but you'll notice the cloud cover with showers sitting back
plains. once those clouds race in, that will cap temperatures from taking off during the day on wednesday. so for tonight, clear skies, plenty of sun for the day tomorrow, and then beyond that time frame we've got more sun coming in during the daylight hours of wednesday. thicker clouds chasing that sun away, that means scattered showers building on in. beyond that looks fairly nice for thursday and friday. certainly a chilly start as polls open tomorrow morning, 20's north, lower 30's going to be very, very pleasant. lots of sun, lower 60's south, near 60 far north and right around 60 in central parts of the state. a scattering of showers move in for wednesday, they clear by thursday. sunshine giving way to cloud and a late day shower for veterans day and a very chilly start to the upcoming weekend, low 40's. 30's north, scattered snow showers the the mountains and pain a flurry south.
hampshire. jamie: a recap of the manchester city marathon that was yesterday, beautiful day for running, all kinds of runners were out. i'm maggie hassan, and new hampshire has a very clear choice: do we keep going with a senator who repeatedly votes with the corporate special interests... or a new senator who sides with the people of new
hampshire? my focus has always been on creating opportunity for working families:
narrator: two kinds of business experience. chris sununu's family handed him a top-rated ski resort. he ran it into the ground. chris sununu cut jobs, and cut workers' hours so he wouldn't have to
provide health insurance. colin van ostern went to college on student loans, became a stonyfield executive at college for america. colin van ostern: i'm colin van ostern. real success is helping others get ahead. a bright new hampshire future starts with looking out for people. i alone can fix it! bomb the [bleep] out of 'em. i'd like to punch him in the face. i like people that weren't captured, okay? he's a mexican! she ate like a pig... i moved on her like a [bleep] i did not say that... i love war. yes, including with nukes. blood coming out of her... they're rapists... wrong.
i wanna be unpredictable. ...on 5th avenue and shoot somebody... she's a slob... i don't remember! and you can tell them to go [bleep] themselves! priorities usa action is responsible for the content of
this advertising. i'm hillary clinton and i approve this message. donald trump: i could stand in the middle of 5th avenue and shoot somebody and i wouldn't lose any voters, okay? and you can tell them to go f--- themselves! you know, you could see there was blood coming out of her eyes, you gotta see this guy. ahh, i don't know what i said, ahh. "i don't remember." he's going like "i don't remember!? jamie: boston bruins skate at the garden tonight taking on the buffalo sabres. bruins need to get it rolling on home ice, they have just one win in four tries in year.
last year was a big reason they missed the playoffs for the second straight year. when it comes to the celtics, if you watched them lately you know the problem, it's defense. and particularry in the first half, they allow denver to score 77 points in the first half. they allowed cleveland to score 6 points in the first half in the game before that. last night denver won, 123-107. celtics 3-3 on the season, they play at washington on wednesday. let's do u.n.h. football and talk about the polls, the new fcs college football pro has new hampshire at number 21. there are three other c.a. teams ahead of u.n.h. in the standings. it was a perfect day in the queen city yesterday and runners took advantage of that in the 10th annual manchester city marathon. it started live on channel 9.
486 people finished. 89 relay teams finished. 465 people ran the half marathon. with another 45 half marathon relay teams and 187 people ran the 5k race. one of the marathon finishers was our own kevin scarupa. congratulations to all. our new hampshire college teams will start playing in ncaa tournaments soon beginning with colby sawyer women's keene state is in the division 3 tournament. they will be playing this weekend. and also this weekend st. a's. tom: thank you. jennifer: right now on wmur.com, it is mansion monday, so you can check out this $27 million estate in unity. it has two horse barns, two wine cellars and its own pub. and it's all spread out across 130 acres, because you need your own pub.
i'm colin van ostern, and this is my father-in-law, rich. and this is peter and patrick. i agreed to do a tv ad only if my grandkids were in it, too. i trust colin with their future. my clean energy plan is all about their future. as governor, i'll invest in solar and renewable energy. that'll hold down energy costs, create local jobs, and protect the environment. it's how we keep new hampshire moving forward. or grampa could just keep feeding the kids cake and ice cream. you get a lot of energy
vo: ending funding for planned parenthood. taking away our
right to choose. restricting our health care choices. this is senator kelly ayotte's record. ayotte voted six times to end funding for planned parenthood - putting access to birth control and cancer screenings at risk. and she supports overturning roe v. wade. woman 1: kelly ayotte says she's for women. but it's just an act. woman 2: voters definitely cannot trust kelly ayotte. vo: senate majority pac is responsible for the content of this advertising. what's kelly ayotte costing you? you're paying more for prescription medicines. kelly ayotte blocked lower cost generic drugs. you're paying high interest rates on college loans. ayotte voted against letting you refinance at lower rates. and you're paying higher bank fees while ayotte voted for special breaks to wall street executives. kelly ayotte. she's siding with corporate special interests and that's costing you.
when all three
of these guys show up, they come up with some crazy ideas. sometimes, i just have to say, "no way." so i appreciate it when annie kuster says "no" to cutting social security. she stood up to both parties to protect our benefits. annie's working to make sure we have a secure retirement. so i can worry about these guys instead. thanks, annie.
