11:18 am
makes it an ugly campaign. not only do we have these huge partisan divide but we have divides among people on all kinds of levels. men and women. old and young. white and non white. college educated. not college educated. they're all deeply divided and who shows up to vote will make a big difference in who g elected but also it will make a big difference in how the country somehow comes together after all this. >> we're in the home stretch. i look forward to speaking with you once this is all over. >> well we'll be watching arizona. very interested to see what happens there. all right. so we hipped you into the manacan challenge yesterday and today see hillary clinton getting into it. she posted this video on her

11:21 am
for the next few hours. they'll be stronger to our south just like we're seeing now with gustier 30 to 35 miles an hour. and that will be the key. just watch for some pockets of blowing dust and that could spernl be something to get kicked up, rather the dust if you are traveling to the south with those winds coming out of the east. something to watch for. now the wind a and kind of just sit to our southeast over the next few days. the valley will stay dry and it looks like really across the state we'll stay dry. so we saw a few high clouds early this morning. plan on sunny skies the rest of the afternoon. valley and pretty much statewide. tomorrow a few passing high clouds at times otherwise mostly sunny and dry and on thursday it looks dry too. slight chance of a sprinkle or two in southeast arizona.

for the content of this advertising. now how's that thing supposed to convince anyone to buy a car? it's just full of hot air and doesn't say much. like the labels you see on a lot of chicken packaging. the ones that say "raised without antibiotics." that's just a trick to get you to pay more money. fact is, by federal law, all chickens must be clear of antibiotics before they leave the farm. it's a marketing gimmick...like mr. floppy arms here. though i must say, he is somewhat hypnotic. don't fall for the hype, dale. dale? 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, blood coming out of her wherever... you gotta see this guy. ahh, i don't know what i said, ahh.
