6:00 pm
you're talking about presidential politics. but today it was ted cruz's time in the spotlight. in fact, we only saw one protestor outside the hyatt regency hotel today. his sign said "lyin' ted," that's how trump refers to ted cruz. what did ted cruz have to tell this crowd to try to convince california voters to vote for him? anne makovec was there for his speech. >> reporter: he covered the things you might expect. he wants to repeal obamacare. he wants a flat tax. he wants to go after icy. but he tailored his missage to his audience, the california gop. >> god bless the great state of california. >> whoo! >> reporter: senator ted cruz tailored his stump speech specifically to the golden state. >> listen, as republicans in california, y'all are a hearty bunch. >> reporter: he conceded the
6:01 pm
role that california normally plays in primary elections. >> year after year, y'all were used to being treated by republicans like an atm to take your money and spend it in other states. well, i can tell you right now we're going to spend more money in california than we raise in california. >> whoo! [ applause ] >> reporter: this was the scene outside of the hotel today compared to the throngs of protestors donald trump speech brought out yesterday. >> we don't want a racist! let's dump trump!! >> reporter: for the california republican party it's a convention like never before. >> hopefully the enthusiasm will carry over to the june 7 primary and people will vote for down-ticket candidates. that's the sort of silver lining that we're looking for out of this drama. >> reporter: cruz got a little more credibility when he got the endorsement of pete wilson, who is blamed for the decline of the gop because of prop 187 that galvanized the latino
6:02 pm
vote. cruz now fights for delegates in 53 congressional districts of the state. >> california's such a tough spot for republicans. how are you going to make an impression here? >> well, california for the first time in decades is hosting the decisive primary that will decide who the republican nominee will be. and our strength in california is the grassroots. it's the men and women you see standing right here. >> reporter: back here life in the banquet hall in burlingame where they are setting up for the dinner presentation which will be hosted by ted cruz's running mate carly fiorina. live in burlingame, i'm anne makovec, now back to allen upstairs. >> thank you. kpix 5 political analyst melissa caen joins me now. ted cruz really hit trump on his support of democrats. >> that's right. during his remarks today, ted cruz mentioned that donald trump had given some money to
6:03 pm
california democrats and we fact checked it and found it was true. he has given money to jerry brown's campaign and to the tune of $3,500. $2,500 to gavin newsom and $6,000 to kamala harris. the most recent contribution to kamala harris was in 2013. so probably not the last you'll hear about that. >> trump will say it's not unusual for people to support whichever candidate or party thinks might have their backs. >> for sure. but people who are supporters of newsom and harris might want to know this information. [ chuckling ] >> earlier you made an interesting observation about the attendees here. you looked around and you didn't see many assembly members here. >> reporter: that's right. there were very few elected officials in this atrium. there are 28 members of the assembly who are all republicans and only three have shown up yesterday. so we talked to one of the two who did rocky chavez and asked him why. >> what elected official would like to be involved in, you know, riots?
6:04 pm
i don't think anybody does. so i'm sure they were staying away for that. >> you know, chavez added that donald trump has been acting in ways that are disregarding the damage he could do to the down ballot races in california this year. >> carly fiorina had actually signed up to speak here before she was named running mate to ted cruz. she is tonight. what do you think? what are we going to hear? >> reporter: tonight carly fiorina is going to try to relight the fire that she had in 2010. she lost to barbara boxer but did well in the republican primary leading up to that and so she is going to talk about california and expect her to appeal to female voters. >> what about sillicon valley money? is she reaching out for that? >> everyone is reaching out for that money. >> absolutely. thank you. as we were talking about, ted cruz's running mate carly fiorina will speak tonight. earlier today, she was in indiana campaigning with cruz's wife heidi. fiorina said ted cruz's willingness to be with a strong woman like heidi reflects well
6:05 pm
on him. and it looks like cruz is picking up some momentum in indiana. that new poll gives him a lead heading into tuesday's primary. the survey by the mike downs center for indiana politics puts him ahead of donald trump by nearly 16 points. john kasich a distant third but, um, could still be a close race because there are many people who are still undecided. donald trump also campaigning in indiana today. protestors did everything there they could to disrupt his stop at the convention here yesterday, too. they stormed through police barricades here and clashed with trump supporters as they tried to push their way toward the entrance of this hotel. they tried to get in, other demonstrators were trying to keep the traffic out. on bayshore avenue, they formed a human barricade outside the hotel. in fact, those protestors made it impossible for donald trump to get into the hotel from the front entrance so he went in through the back door.
6:06 pm
>> then we went under a fence and through a fence and, oh, boy, felt like i was crossing the border, actually. [ laughter ] >> you know? it's true. i was crossing the border. but i got here. >> reporter: at least five protestors were arrested but mr. trump thinks it could have been more. in fact, he tweeted this today. he said, the protestors in california were thugs and criminals. they should be dealt with strongly by law enforcement. so that was donald trump yesterday. today it's all about ted cruz. he gave a speech at noon. carly fiorina his running mate will be speaking at the dinner tonight. we are going to have more coming up at 6:30 for you. >> thank you. we'll check back with you then. also, on the democratic side bernie sanders opened up his second california campaign today here in the bay area on
6:07 pm
college avenue in oakland. sanders had another campaign office in l.a. hillary clinton opened an oakland office of her own earlier this week and she will bring her campaign to california on thursday and friday holding events in oakland and also los angeles. clouds of smoke billowed over the park street bridge in oakland today. here's how it looked as a fire started there this morning. another witness shot this photo from farther away as a huge plume of smoke rose into the air firefighters were called to the dock at 2201 east 7th street at 11:45. that's just behind the miller milling company. about half the pier there was destroyed. no boats were attached to the pier. the smoke was so black, though, because of how the wood itself was treated. >> the pier is built out of logs that have creosote in them so there's like an oil injected oil infused log which once heats up and preheats and starts to off gas starts to burn and the oil starts to burn which causes the big thick, black column of smoke which you
6:08 pm
saw. >> investigators are looking into what caused that fire. in fairfax, the huge oak tree came crashing down flattening three parked cars. it happened around 8:30 this morning near perry park. the tree branches also scraped a couple of houses. workers have been on scene all day cleaning it up. they are also trimming up nearby trees. >> we're concerned that another tree may fall and hurt some -- could hurt some people that walked by so we'll alleviate the weight so no other trees fall. >> no one was hurt. as for what brought the tree down, it's still unclear. it has been windy. we have learned about the bicyclist shot and killed overnight by lake merritt. the 29-year-old just moved to oakland from texas. he was on a bike lane on lakeshore boulevard when someone shot him. robbery isn't the motive. three hours earlier on san pablo avenue in west oakland,
6:09 pm
several gunmen fired into a group of people on a sidewalk in front of a liquor store. four men and one woman were hit and wounded. they are expected to survive. detectives tell us from the looks of it, it is gang- related. police are holding a san jose man who they say killed his wife. officers went to a home on indigo oak lane about 1 a.m. and found a woman with a gunshot wound. 48-year-old sonya nawin died at the hospital. police arrested her husband 63- year-old james. detectives are working on motive. coming up, talk about a growing industry. job seekers flock to a bay area career fair that's all about pot. >> a brand-new development in dublin attracted about 1,000 potential home buyers to come out here. that story coming up in a live report. >> and it's the last lunch line for a popular east bay deli. how long some people were willing to wait for a sandwich. >> and what a day by the bay
6:10 pm
today. we'll see how long this lasts coming up. pot -- is being ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

6:13 pm
of job seekers. >> did some people say a cannabis job fair, are you nuts? >> of course. my answer is, you know, what other industry is hiring literally thousands of individuals all across the state? >> reporter: and the pay isn't anything to laugh at, either. in california, an entry level cannabis job can pay anywhere from 11 to $19 an hour. a manager spot could pay as high as $31 an hour. and the types of jobs from working the land to crunching the business numbers seem endless. >> we're really looking for someone to interface with marketing. >> just hungry like data people coming out here looking for work in this industry. >> reporter: but these job seekers know that growing a cannabis industry outside california still has an uphill battle. >> hopefully, the federal government will legalize it so we can really, you know, do some stuff. >> reporter: in san francisco, mark kelly, kpix 5. >> today it's good-bye to an
6:14 pm
old italian deli in oakland. people lined up beginning at 7 a.m. to get food for the last time at genova deli in oakland's can he mess school district. after being in business for 90 years, it's closing because of a rent dispute. >> very sad to see the deli close. i have been coming here since 1957 with my great-grandmother since 1975. this place is history. the owners plan to keep another deli open in napa. there's a popular deli with the same name in walnut creek owned by a different branch of the same family. since we're talking about the cost of living in the bay area, let's talk about housing. we have been hearing for years that there's just not enough supply to meet the demand. prices are shooting through the roof, a little pun. but kpix 5's da lin shows us a brand-new community is popping up in dublin but not without problems for dublin. hey, da. >> reporter: yeah, brian. how about 800 units of housing?
6:15 pm
well, this is one of 800 homes making up a brand-new community here in dublin and open house is done now. but this place was packed earlier. and i found that a lot of these folks are people priced out of sillicon valley, a few people from san francisco, as well. >> i like the dining, the way the dining is attached. >> reporter: this first time home buyer rents in santa clara and works in sunnyvale. >> we want to pick up a place where we have a good school district, at the same time we have a good neighborhood. >> reporter: after following this brand-new development for the last eight months, he and his wife finally got to see it in person. like many of these potential buyers, the software developer's priced out of sillicon valley. >> it's way too expensive. i don't want to buy something too expensive. and it's congested. >> reporter: about 1,000 people came out today for the first preview of wallace ranch, a gated community with 806 homes in east dublin on tassajara road. >> from townhomes to estate homes, averaging probably
6:16 pm
square footage from 1500 to 4500 square feet. >> reporter: the townhomes start at $500,000 to $600,000. the largest homes go for up to $1.5 million. >> do you have an interest? >> reporter: this retired tech worker moved to dublin from fremont a few years ago. he is ready to buy another one. >> we're looking for a house for our daughter. she lives in san francisco. rent is high. she can commute from here using the bart. >> reporter: the dublin bart station is 10 minutes away. that's also why this marin county renter is here today. >> pretty expensive in marin especially if you are looking for new construction. >> reporter: yeah. these homes will be ready to be moved into in july. it will take about 3 to 4 years to completely finish all 806 homes in the community here. live in east dublin, i'm da lin, kpix 5.
6:17 pm
>> about the problem for dublin. it is the fastest growing city in california. it's added 1,000 new homes in the last decade and is scrambling to building a second high school to keep up. with all the talk this week of the raiders moving to las vegas, raiders fans are saying, wait just a minute! they protested at raiders headquarters in alameda to demand owner mark davis take more initiative to get a new stadium built in oakland. >> you need to commit to oakland. we have committed to you through a lose season. and it's time for you to commit to the oakland worldwide raider nation. oakland is our capital and we want to see some leadership from you. >> just two days ago, davis spoke to a stadium committee in las vegas and he said he is willing to spend $500 million to help build a new stadium and move the team there. tomorrow at the coliseum complex, thousands of fabs will converge for two games happening at the same time at 12:30 at oracle arena the warriors playing the portland trail blazers in game one of

6:29 pm
yesterday and today. and yeah, that difference outside was huge. but here inside it's still active. we are here in the atrium of the hyatt regency where the lobbying you might say is taking place. candidates and delegates and attendees have been kind of mixing it up socializing before tonight's dinner and, of course, it was ted cruz earlier today who spoke at the luncheon banquet. he is still banking on support to slow down donald trump. he was clearly, clearly directing his message to the state voters. >> that's the mighty california spirit that built this state into such an incredible economic engine that you have survived and this rivalled in the face of democratic mismanagement year after year after year. >> reporter: cruz's running mate carly fiorina going to be the speaker at tonight's dinner and in the banquet hall right now maria medina has a preview.
