8:03 pm
by the way, chris wallace did a great job. he understands, as most people do, this is a fundamental pennant of democracy. you have to have faith in the outcome of the election. >> how do you think las vegas did? >> las vegas showed off the town very, very well. the debate went flawlessly. the crowd misbehaved a few times. you probably saw the vegas crowd. this is the third debate of the season. >>it's amazing. probably no other city has had that. we have a thee team on the way hockey team on the way too. tricia, back to you. >> we have some breaking news to tell you about right now. the debate is over, but the traffic nightmare has started again. i want you to take a look here.

8:16 pm
what do you think the ramifications are? >> i think it's difficult. it makes it hard to come together for any kind of compromise in congress or trying to get her policy through. >> his statement was to the effect i would look at it when it happens. what is the rough with that that you have? >> well, he's suggesting that it's rigged, and he's going to look and s there's no evidence of that. secretary of state around the country, his own party leaders, his own vice presidential candidate said, no, we'll accept the results. for him to back off of that is really un-american and certainly undemocratic. >> chris wallace pressed secretary clinton on wikileaks
8:17 pm
borders. are you worried about that? >> well, she made it pretty clear she didn't mean open borders. she meant electric grids across state lines. when you're talking about open borders, we need to be more of a leader of the world, have more open relationships, more open trade. >> do you think that's really what she meant? of course it is. she's the secretary of state. they go into it with that kind of attitude towards she has been secretary of state. she knows you can't have open borders. she knows a country exists with boundaries. maybe it was a poor choice of words. >> thank you for joining us. we'll send it back to you, tricia from the spin room. >> thank you all. we continue our team coverage with leslie marine who is live on unlv campus. she spoke to individuals really invested in tonight's debate. leslie?

8:30 pm
tonight. so we'll let jon do the introduction and fire the first question. >> joining us as spokesman for the trump campaign, you were just saying before we came on that no one wants to talk about the issues, so i'm sure you're going to be upset. the national ap lead is already out. you know what the lead is, that your candidate is not willing to say he'll accept the result of the election. shouldn't that disturb people? >> i don't think it should disturb people. why would any candidate accept results that haven't even occurred yet. it is extremely important that we make sure people are aware and paying attention. he has stated specific cities like philadelphia, who the secretary of state has released information saying there's been voter fraud. there's another reason he's pushing for voter registration, saying we have to win big just to make sure there's no funny business that occurred.
8:31 pm
widespread funny is be. this is the last question i will ask about this. do you worry about him undermining the faith of the american people in the election? >> not at all. i think a lot of people are already worried about voter integrity. if you've been involved in politics, especially at the grass roots level, like i've been, it's worrisome. we're not really talking about widespread, per se. we're talking about specific counties that can determine the way an entire state we're talking about specific counties that determine these higher states. >> katrina, you're inside three weeks before election day, and donald trump will be talking about some issues. what do you think he needs to discuss to really -- among other things -- gain ground with female voters that he's lost. he's lost some of his support among female voters. >> well, i think what you're seeing in the polls, i think you have people with initial thoughts and reactions and
8:32 pm
people realize we're 20 days out from an election. mr. trump has been out there for four decades, and these types of things have never come up. people are starting to believe these are campaign tactics, specifically after things came out today that people contacted by the clinton campaign they were paid to go out and incite violence. these people are paid to do what they do. it's politics. it's a dirty people understand that. >> thank you for stopping by and participating in that sport. >> thank you. >> also what we've seen, some major traffic jams around las vegas right now because of the security that's in place. let's go to 13 action news reporter bryan callahan, joining us now with the latest on what's happening on the roadways. bryan, any luck? >> reporter: steve, a lot less of a nightmare than predebate traffic.

8:45 pm

8:46 pm
using stuff in the debates in political ads. i can see both candidates got some fodder for it. but i do think that donald trump, again, we talked about this earlier, not being willing to say he'll accept the results of the election, well, that will be fine with his base, but it's going to terrify people outside the base. that will be played over and over again. >> this has been an asymmetrical presidential race. for everyone who says trump has to do a could happen on hillary clinton's end of the race to lose it? >> well, i think that there are so few people now who are undecided that it really is going to come down to the ground games of both campaigns. trump doesn't have much of one, but the republican party does. i think if hillary clinton's campaign had their druthers, they would send her to tahiti so she couldn't make a mistake in the next three weeks. >> trump is going to keep
8:47 pm
election. he's going to keep talking about the potential problems with the election, and he's going to reinforce something he's done tonight. you've been there 30 years. you couldn't get it done. the e-mails, the lack of trust. >> what about that? the wikileaks, the e-mail dumps? >> do you think the voters are immune to it in the last part. the ones in the last few days have been really the worst yet in the eyes of many >> i think they are some of the worst yet. some of the conversations that hillary clinton or hillary clinton's aids have, but what she is remarkably good at, steven, you saw that tonight. i've interviewed her. she will not answer the question she does not want to answer. when wikileaks came up, she immediately pivoted to this is a russian hack with trump and putin. she's almost like jell-o when you try to pin her down on that. but they will one ads using some
8:48 pm
that could hurt her. >> that's a very good where do you think we're headed here? three week to go, is it going to be nastier or louder? >> it's hard to believe it's going to be nastier. >> charlie brown halloween is next followed by toy story halloween. stay with us. we'll see you back here at 11:00. >> all right, gentlemen, thank you. outside the spin room t the thomas and mack is where we find christopher king. chris? >> yes, this is the third and final debate, like the sign said. this is the presidential debate 2016. the folks inside got to hear the candidates battle out over issues like abortion. hillary clinton says she supports rows if versus wade and will defend it.

8:50 pm
mile-per-hour wind there. satellite composite, nothing. not showing anything across the area. when we look across the region, it's relatively dry. that's the way it's going to stay up until the weekend. for tomorrow, though, if you're in from out of town, maybe stop in the hotel, watch the debate. and now you're going to do something fun tonight and tomorrow. it will be a clear start, spectacular weather, just to give you some suggestions right there. our fair city has the strip is one thing, and there's so many other things too. you have 60s overnight. . upper 80s. we're going to see an increase in cloud cover. that could lead us to a shower by late sunday night. i don't want to oversell it too much. if you put it in percentages, maybe 30% or so. either way, that drops it down. high pressure builds to get us into the 90s.

8:51 pm
pacific northwest, energy coming through and that will be enough to kick the temperatures down many degrees, even below normal in some respect. of course overnight lows dropping into the 50s makes it chilly. anticipate the next couple of days being nice and sunny, and, then, of course, we warm up. in between that, a morning of rain as soon as late sunday night. back to you. >> and this is just into our newsroom. it was a safe night for debate goers at unlv. as you can a huge concern tonight, especially with so many protesters expected and the tone of this campaign.
