for over 300,000 nevadans, social security means a secure retirement. but in washington, congressman joe heck supports privatizing it... turning our savings over to wall street... and risking it on the
stock market. 's plan means billions more in fees for wall street. and they've donated over half a million dollars to his campaigns. those numbers speak for themselves. joe heck is a threat to a secure retirement, because he's part of the problem in washington. afscme people is responsible

variety from fun things to more serious things. this morning i sent in photos and you can see off in the distance military ships patrolling the coastline keeping the entire region of rio very safe. all olympic venues are in four different parts of rio. secured. we're having a great time getting to know not annual the staff but nbc afill yachts across the country but certainly being able to catch one our local athletes. we have a few more who will be competing in the next few days. to add to the story we talked about earlier with cody miller we're waiting to hear if he will be participating in the four by

i doubt we will hear from the president directly. if he's asked about it, they may address that. they've tried to stay away from getting into tit for tat with trump. this morning in an interview on cnbc he was asked about that and he said that's what i meant because of the way that the president handled our troops in iraq. president obama was the m.v.p. of isis. he's obviously not backing down on that at all. meantime clinton today rolling out her major economic speech up in the detroit area where she will be talking about jobs and what she wants to do to deal with the economy. she's picking up a lot of support from republicans, going after republicans specifically. we'll see if they hang in there and what their response may be
speech. a lot of people in the republican party are saying they don't like trump, they don't want to vote for donald trump and are supporting hillary clinton. clearly the two parties have different outlooks on how to deal with the economy. >> kim: the trump campaign hoping to stop the bleeding with white tom has been above an accident this morning, a fatal auto pedestrian accident. cog joins us where we had a fatal auto pedestrian accident about eight hours ago. >> somebody crossing the street here at boulder and nellis in the crosswalk. the problem is that the traffic

orange cones across the roadway. police are taking a look at this red pickup truck here that has front end damage. this was originally reported as a hit and run. we're not sure if that's the vehicle but we have seen police examining that truck. >> jeff: we're looking at 15 north bound at flamingo. had an accident working there earlier but not causing any slowing. there is slowing 15 southnd bowl. this stretch will take you 11 minutes 15 south bound between downtown and tropicana. let's get a final check of the thursday forecast. >> kelly: we are seeing a lot of sunshine in the las vegas area right now. as we look to the east, there are clouds off in the distance. thunderstorms a possibly east of the las vegas valley today. here is a live look outside.
the last couple of days as far as the haze is concerned. temperatures stepping out the door pretty comfortable. centennial 77 right now. spring valley 82. paradise you are 83. wind nice and light, not going to be an issue for us this afternoon, none of that blow drier effect today. there is still a chance of thunderstorms, mainly arizona, utah and parts of lincoln county and far eastern clark county. s dry. pahrump 100 today. boulder city 98 is your expected high. not bad. not bad for august at all. 100 in las vegas. 104 tomorrow but it's going to get hot this weekend. great weekend to stay in the air conditioning and watch the olympics. >> dana: time for the water cooler now. you've seen the face on michael phelps prerace. they call it the phelps face. he looks very serious. not all swimmers will before their races.
