more emotional. >> i want to see a republican in the white house. i want to see my friend mitch mcconnell have the republican majority in the senate. >> richard murdock was just as spreektful. >> when i began the campaign senator lugar was not my enemy. he is not now my enemy, he will never be my enemy. he was simply over the last 15 months my opponent. this race is not about animosity. it is about ideas. it is about the direction of the republican party. it is about the direction of our country. >> president obama said in a statement as friend and former colleague i want to express my thanks to louing gar. i found during my time in senate he was often willing to reach
across the aisle and get things done. >> republicans need to win four seats in november to have majority in the senate. if they want to hold that they knead to do so without the 80-year-old lugar who lost last night. mourdock has the backing of the senate committee and north carolina voters approved an amendment defining marriage between a man and a woman thus banning gay marriage. the big headlines on election night were the loss of a long time senator and addition of a gay marriage ban in the southern state constitution. heather? >> thank you very much, peter. appreciate it. be sure to stick around richard mourdock that winner will talk about his big win last night. the president stands on gay marriage that's the hot topic this morning. that's what charles crowd hammer is talking about this morning saying it is crystal clear what the obama administration is
doing. >> here he is on "o'reilly." >> it is clear what is going on. i am not sure it was a slam. with biden you boo know. he is a lose cannon all of the time. i wouldn't describe it as a strategy. they are telling the american people with a wink and a nod then of course we are going to support gay marriage the only question, the only debate with the administration is to say it now or whether to say it after election day. like what obama said to his friends vladimir and dimitri in russia, after the election i can be more flexible. a president announces i am evolving on the issue, you already have high officials in the government saying i am in favor of it. you think obama is going to announce evolution stopped short of joe biden. of course not. everybody understands he will say he's in favor and it will be
a done deal. he has some worries about parts of the con sit we know see. >> he does not think it will be a dominant tack tore in the election. mitt romney is sweep threeing more primaries winning indiana, north carolina your state and west virginia inching himself closer to securing the party's nomination. >> despite not officially winning yet both camps are in full leblgs mode hitting each other on key election issues romney responding to the president's reelection tactics last night on "hannity"." >> i think it is time for the truth. i think the american people recognize we have important challenges and we have to have swub who will speak in an honest adult way. this kind of incendiary effort of the obama team i don't think will connect with the american people. he will fire up their base but the people who will be deciding those people who voted for
president obama last time will not vote for him again because the last four years have been harder than they had expected. harder than they were told it would be. need to hear what our plans are and decide who has credibility to get the economy going again. we are in the longest slows recovery in recorded history for this country and it is because of president's policies are so tuned into the old liberal priechs in the past. they didn't work back then, they are not working now. >> hannity tried to get information on potential vp picks. he said he had no information to give. now for the 5@5:00. top lheadlines we have primary news with scott walker he knows who his challenger will be in the recall election. milwaukee mayor tom barrett winning the primary.

good guy that had a bad day. >> maybe he should apologize. >> he used that expression and ought to take it back. >> they had a very good ad that ran yesterday. almost on the first very positive ad compared to good morning in america ad. on the same day within the same news cycle they step on it by calling their opponents contract killers. >> i think this happens time after time and the president never has the willingness to take on his own base. it's only the republicans that cross lines. he sited bill maher's attacks against the right. he said the president should return the money that he donated to the obama super pack. it is now 17 minutes after the hour and here is come of the stories we are following at this hour. the family of missing hollywood executive gavin smith speaking out saying he would never abandon them. his whereabouts a friend's house

automatically approved. >> big development in our borders. a new strategy announced to keep illegal immigrants out of the united states. here with details is steve sen t centon nishg. >> new information on intelligence gathering to target certain immigrants. it was to blanket checkpoints with resources dragging them to more remote areas where they could be easily singled out. now we have to figure out who the offenders are why they are crossing and what threat they pose to national security. they are using intelligence to get ahead of the threat. tracking down further on repeat offenders. here's how chief mike fisher put it as he testified before a house panel. the theme is to use rapid response to meet all threats. these are essential as we continue to build upon an
approach that puts them in place to combat the grates list. the border situation is changing rapidly. the number of agents doubled in the past 8 years. number of apprehensions dropped to the lowest point in 40 years and slew of immigrants slowed substantially because of a poor u.s. economy. there has been increase on border surveillance but makes no mention of expanding physical barriers at the border. 25 after the hour. you buy it and they waste it. why this equipment to our airport is collecting dust in an airport instead. >> unbelievable pictures. this is a wall of debris from the japanese tsunami starting to strike american shores. we will have that for you. a shot for your mom on this day in history in 1914 president woodrow wilson issued a proclamation establishing a wonderful tradition the very

ore the documents. he denies he has been uncooperative. hundreds of weapons in the hands of mexican criminals. two of those guns ued in a shootout which killed u.s. border patrol agent brian perry. >> booed news if you are planning on retiring. the cost to pay for medical bills on the rise. they estimate a newly retired couple will need 240,000 dollars to help cover healthcare expenses even with medicare benefits. this estimate does not factor in dental services or long-term care like the cost of a nursing home. the pictures are unbelievable. alaska's shore being blooded with debris from last year's tsunami in japan. bottles and containers covering the beaches. the debris riving months earlier than expected because of strong force of winds. more debris expected to hit the west socoast of the united stat. the mass the size of california.
a real jet center a brand new invention making waves with vacationers in florida. ainsley look at this. >> what in the world. >> it is a jet pack uses water pressure to catapult people dozens of pefeet in the air allowing them to literally fly over the gulf of mexico. the cost about $300 for half an hour. that doesn't include medical expenses afterwards. that's your 5 and 5:30. >> stunning new developments this morning. we are learning the would be underwear bomber thwarted are blowing up a plane a few days ago wasn't a terrorist at all. instead a double agent working for the cia. >> doug luzader live in washington, d.c. with the latest. >> by just about any measure it appears to be a real cue by the cia. we know more about how it happened. the cia had an inside man somebody who infiltrated in yemen to an extraordinary
degree. according to health officials he wasn't somebody to carry out the plot he was the man to wear the newest version of the underwear bomb. instead of carrying on to the plane he delivered it to the cia. when it comes to the bomb itself we are learning more about that, too. it's an advanced version of a device that was almost detonated aboard a u.s. bound jetliner on christmas day in 2009. full body scanners in airports should have been able to pick it up. the officer with thousands and thousands of normal people every day. if you are wearing an underwear bomb that is going to stand out. i feel very strongly they would be able to identify that and they could identify it either with a pat down or trade protection.
>> in theory. there are new questions about the scanners. first of all many airports overseas don't use them. congress is going to ask whether the cia will de loy the economy that causes taxpayers. the tsa has nearly $200 million in security equipment that is just gathering dust in a dallas warehouse. bill o'reilly riley also talking last night on his show he sat down with imam involved in the controversial ground zero mosque right here in new york city. the imam is no longer involved with the project but discussed the issue with o'reilly on "the factor." >> long island scores of people killed. just like the 60 muslims downtown with you. their children wokeup in the morning and their mothers and sisters never came home. they said today --
>> we understand. >> let me finish. they said today will you tell imam rule that we don't object to the mosque as long as he is just not in that proximity. we want to keep that proximity away from any controversy at all. we don't want any controversy there. some people may read it the wrong way. >> i respect their wish. i know you do, too. >> i do very much. this is why we -- the community told me i had to go out because the people understood my vision they would all support it. and they did. >> like the vision move it a couple blocks away. >> it will all come together to build a coalition of muslims of christians, of jews, of atheists who believe in modernizing this experience. >> i think you are on the right
track here. >> heather mentioned the imam is not on the project because they had different visions on what it should become. the vision for the weather forecast. before you leave the house this morning first degree weather update with maria molina. >> you are a vision this morning maria. >> thanks. good morning to you and good morning to everyone. we are tracking a cold front that will be a big story across the eastern sea board. it is not only bringing in a chance of showers and thunderstorms but possibility of severe storms along the panhandle. stay alert out there. we are not expecting a major tornado outbreak. maybe an isolated tornado out there. the other big change is a change in temperature across parts of the southeast. 68 degrees as we head out the door. as we head into the afternoon hours we are not going to be warming up at this hour.
70 degrees expected in the city of atlanta. cooler behind the front. you can see the 24-hour temperature change behind it. 6 degrees cooler across portions of arkansas and oklahoma. otherwise where the front hasn't moved through we are not seeing much of a cool down. it will be a beautiful weekend in the city. you will notice humidity will be dropping behind that front and you are going to get a lot of sunshine. deal with the showers for today. otherwise once again we are looking at the severe weather risk across eastern parts of the carolinas and georgia and panhandle with an isolated tornado possible. high temperature today in new york city 71, showers and storms possible. further off to the south cooler in atlanta high of only 70. showers and storms as well. >> i think she said just deal with it. >> i know, right. >> grab the umbrella. get through it. double elimination night on "dancing with the stars." >> the second couple who will

the state to respond to changes in technology and in some cases they are already expanding their definition of what constitutes a taxable economic presence otherwise known as a tax message. while most are excessive a corporation needs physical presence in the state before it could be subject to an income based tax as technology evolved and more companies shift to brick and mortar models the tax message is shifting, too. the survey found having a server in the state othr having substantial numbers with a billing address would have a nexus in several states. 36 states consider training and hiring new employees by existing employees as conducting business in the state. 44 taxed out of state employers that allow employers to work from home within their borders. the list goes on. one issue that is dividing tax officials is how to tax the daily sites. the most agreed sales tax should apply to persons like group upon or living social. it should apply to the full or
