7:48 am
dark with the fox shirt on and he was saying that, of course, you can't really find a camp for this type of stunt work but he does recommend for kids who are interested in doing this to take bmx classes, mountain biking classes. >> reporter: yes, definitely mountain biking camps out there as well as parks. there is one i know of up in el cerrito with kids can navigate much smaller obstacles than these ones but different kinds of obstacles in a park setting and it's a great way for kids to learn bike handling, which can help you not only on the trail but also on the street if you need to, you know, if you come across a sudden obstacle in the street. so it really is all about safety. >> thank you, renee. rene is out -- renee is out here all morning long. first talk about your weather because we are heating it up in time for your weekend. temperatures will range from the low 70s in areas like

8:18 am
the 2009 film it was a masterpiece. this film improves on that see quell. the opening scene, when that action scene is happening, turns down the action, that scene is amazing. one of the most perfect sequences i've seen to open up a movie. this film now, star trek beyond, deals with the u.s. bank stadium enterprise view -- uss enterprise crew. this film really balances out great action, great come by due, great casting. i love that. mr. kirk, obviously played by the amazing chris pine. he's fantastic in the film. and also features the first gay character ever in the star trek universe. sulu was recently revealed to be be gay if the movie. i think the movie really works on all levels. there's an emotional cord that
8:19 am
works. i love the score on this film. the action really works. i saw it in imax2d, but i recommend just seeing it in regular format, and save yourself that extra cost. this is definitely a solid movie. i give it a four out of five. next to lights out. a pg-13 horror film. this started on a short film on youtube a couple of years back, and the director made his feature film debut. this film had some legit scares. i saw it with a large crowd, and it was fun. this is one of the best scenes in the film. an entity has tamped effort to a family, and she is trying to
8:20 am
save her mom, because she has this entyty attached to her. it has some script issues, but overall hit this mark in the scare zone. when the lights are on, this entity can't attack, but when it is off, it is very, very senior scary. i gave the film a 3 and a half out of 5. it has some technical issues at times, but overall, it delivers as a solid pg-13 horror film. i'm kevin mccarthy. fox these. >> may be a hard day to go -- fox news. >> may be a hard day to go to the movie. well, maybe in the heat he of the day, sneak in. sounds good. >> stay with us. mornings on 2 will be right back.

8:24 am
through it. i always feel better after that. and actually that's the last thing i remember for days. >> reporter: that's because ryan suddenly went into cardiac arrest. his heart stopped. he stopped breathing, but first responders and citizens came together and saved his life. i asked him what he wanted to say to anyone. >> frankly to say thank you, or anything like that just sounds too shallow. >> reporter: so on friday, ktvu arranged for a surprise reunion for ryan, his family, and rescuers, so he could meet them in person. >> i was holding him up by his chest so he wouldn't collapse. >> he wasn't breathing and didn't have a pulse and so i said we have to get him on the ground so i can start cpr. >> reporter: a staff member rushed over with this defibrillator to restart his
8:25 am
heart. police and firefighters were summoned with the help of an off-duty officer working at the gym. the calls were routed directly to the new 911 cent wish instead of through the sheriff's office. officer sophia was among those who responded. she helped save the life of a second man who had a heart attack playing tennis. >> always good to have an -- to have a good outcome. >> ryan is the first man i ever loved. to almost lose him makes you stand back and appreciate everyone. >> glad to be here. >> so stu ryan and all of his friends say the message here are is simple, learn cpr, and you might save a life. >> like many cities across the

8:27 am
8:28 am
we'll have our top stories for you in just a moment, but first we want to get a quick
8:29 am
check of our forecast over at pedal fest, jack london square. what do you have for us now? i see a couple of bikes behind you, baskets. >> reporter: yes. this is just a little teaser. i'm not going to show you all of it. okay, since you mentioned it, c.k., i'll give you just a brief view here. we have bike art we'll be talking about in 10 or 15 minutes. oh, man, take a look to your right. i want to ride that thing! a lot going on. i will have details coming up. i was reading, there are several pages here to everything that is going on. the kids bike parade starts at 11:45. son if you have a little one, bring them out early. they can do that as well as a kids bike rodeo going on today, and with that, they actually show kids bike safety.
8:30 am
there is going to be music, food, a beer garden. a lot of turn going on here at jack london square here today. pedal fest is going on from 11:00 to 6:00. let's talk about your weather. right now, we do have blue skies. i think we're going to see a very rapid warmup. we have temperatures in the low 50s and low 60s early on. 70s at the coast. we're looking at 80s a across the bay, and nearing 100 degrees for some of our areas in the north bay. i'll have the afternoon highs for you. we are counting down the official announcement from
8:31 am
hillary clinton. she let her v.p. pick be known yesterday through a tweet to her supporters. here is what we know about senator tim kaine. a former are mayor and governor. he's never lost an election. political governors say he's an attractive candidate to the latino community, and is fluent in spanish. this might be one reason this announcement will be made in miami about 30 minutes from now. we're joined this morning by professor joe. thanks for coming in. let's get to this announcement. what do you think about kaine? >> this is the worst kept secret. early on in this week, we all predicted this would be the case. we worry about the possibility of discussion, so you want
8:32 am
someone who could be president. and having that executive experience, being a governor, it's a different skill set. he was not only a governor in virginia, he was also lieutenant governor, which means he's played the number 2 roll before. >> which is important. what do you think he brings toty ticket that clinton wasn't doing on her own. it seems like pence kind of does something for trump. what does kaine do for clinton? >> well, he's a first-term senator, but did get on some important committees. this is part of the reason that barack obama was considering him in 2008, but didn't pick him. he didn't have the foreign policy experience back then. he does now. and that experience has also given him some responsibilities in the senate. one of the things he did was push for independent legislation authorization to give the united states additional reason to use military force against isis, for example.
8:33 am
the obama administration said, well, there's actually 9-11 legislation which gives us that right, but he gave them additional recommendations. >> down sides? >> if you're think about hillary clinton, not about the skim set for being vice president, but politically, what can you do for me? one of it is that he'll fit into trump's narratives. trump will talk about the failure of our trade policies with other countries, and how that has led to offshoring of our manufacturing jobs that has cost blue collar jobs in this country. bernie sanders is very critical of those trade patterns, and one of the things if you're hillary clinton that you want to do is try to grab as many of
8:34 am
those sanders supporters, as possible, feel the person, right? >> they were trying to -- feel the bern, right? >> they were trying to talk about building bridges. and come monday, what should we expect from them, and do you tink they've built the momentum they wanted to build going into the convention? >> well, to an a extent. think you would hope that kaine would whip up a lot of enthusiasm for people, and his back story is a good story, but he's a safe choice in many ways, and frankly, mrs. clinton at this point, as well, has not been yelling and chest bumping. it won't be the kind of speeches, for example, that you heard even from mr. trump the other night. she believes that most voters are right in the middle on things. that's another thing about kaine, by the way, he's a centrist, essentially, and frankly, hillary clinton is as well, based on the issues you're talking about. she believes most voters at the end of the day will provide someone who is moderated, not
8:35 am
to one extreme or authority, but down the middle, and taking a thoughtful approach, and i suspect the convention this week will reflect that tenor, as well. >> yeah, a solid and steady we've got this? >> yeah, the republican convention was like the trump campaign. it was chaotic, but also great theater. you watched every night to see what was going to happen. the democratic convention i think will probably be a little more dull, but that's the whole point. >> more like comfortable food? >> safe is good in this way. >> so do you think the republican national convention accomplished what they were hoping it would accomplish? they didn't get a hundred percent solidarity. didn't get ted cruz on board or what they wanted, but do you think in terms of gets a message out in trump's speech, what grade would you give the rnc. >> well, for the convention, it was speck tackle and theater. i haven't looked at the weekend numbers to know what their ratings were. i would be interested to know
8:36 am
how many watched all of trump's speech. it was the longest ever for a presidential candidate. his speech and was like watching a wrestling match where the wrestles do the chest thumping before or after, bold predictions without explaining how you're going to do something. but it was also theatricle. he had some good arguments that will appeal to some voters, for example the jobs being moved offshore and promising to bring them back. but he's short on details. >> do you think up to this point, though, he hasn't ever really given a lot he of details as he has gone through, and he's still been able to garner are support, he's still been able to get the nomination. do you think post convention, though, that voters will start saying, hey, i want to see some specifics? >> well, the presidential election cycle today is much longer than it used to be. it's several years. and we had debates earlier on. so a larger number of people
8:37 am
are more engaged than they were before. but most americans will engage from the beginning of september to november. so we're not even to the point where a lot of people will be be paying attention yet, and it will be an enormous amount of media focus at that point, fact checking, and scrutiny about can you really deliver on these things, and responses from people in congress saying i'm not going to support that, maybe i'll support that. you can't go all the way to november by just promising to do something without printing white papers and details. so if he has those details, he'll need to talk about them. i have to say, though, in closing on him real quickly, on trump, it's been unwise to underestimate him. he beat a field of a lot of seasoned competitors,, and he was a good street fighter, whether he brings that kinds of chops and smarts into this campaign where it's now just two people at this point, apologies to the other candidates who might run, it's really hillary and donald at this point, the point is can he stop being the republican
8:38 am
candidate at this point, and be presidential and act like someone who could represent anyone. a lot of people still feel alienated by his rhetoric. >> as we're here hill's speech on introducing kaine. how important is bernie sanders to this convention? >> well, he's efor muslim important, be because any baddance he give -- he's very important, one out of four registered voters, 25% of the electorate, they got excited about bernie. i teach those people at san francisco state. one student was for clinton in my class, everyone else was a sanders supporter. and it was because they didn't like hillary clinton. she has a deficit to make up with young people. bernie sanders is very important in this convention
8:39 am
for specifically that reason. >> thank you for your insight. we'll send it. >> the olympic committee has a decision to make tomorrow about whether to ban the whole urban team. their track and field team has already been suspended because of a doping program. this morning, in san francisco, a march for peace will be held in honor of mario woods. last night hundreds of people gathered at the cornerstone missionary baptist church in san francisco's bay view strict. they came to remember mario woods on what would have been his 87th birthday. he was carried a knife when he was shot more than 20 times by san francisco police officers last december, sparking a use of force controversy. week's later, be san francisco's supervisors formally declared woods'
8:40 am
birthday a day of remembrance. his mother was among those attending last night's memorial. >> you know when we're alone at night, and you realize you would just like to talk to him one more time. i would love for him to say mom, i would love for him to say what are we gonna do today? where are we gotten in a eat? that would be what i could want. >> some bay area police and firefighters had a much difference response to mario woods day. they took out a full paged a paying tribute to police and firefighters killed in the line of duty. >> the recent high-profile incidents highlight the need to recruit the best possible prospects for the police department. we report from san francisco on the latest efforts to hire officers who really represent the community. >> reporter: the job of a
8:41 am
police officer become be increasingly difficult. in finding qualified candidates is also a growing problem. this after police were targeted in fatal shootings in dallas, louisiana, and criticism over recent police shootings. >> there are good police officers, there are bad police officers. our goal is people who want to come into this job have a passion for their community. >> reporter: that's the job of san francisco police lieutenant troy dangerfield and his recruiting department. for the last 25 years when has served the people of san francisco. now it's up to him to find the right men and women to police the community. an job he doesn't take lightly. >> when you only have one group of people that's mostly represented in the police department, that doesn't give us an equal playing field to understanding the communities of san francisco. >> reporter: 83% of the officers men. 49% of those on the force are white. 21% asian, and nearly 16% latino. that's why the san francisco police department is changing the face of policing in the
8:42 am
city. >> specifically go out to the hispanic student unions, the black student unions, and all of those who feel that they're underrepresented within the police department. >> reporter: looking at the numerous recruiting classes throughout the years, you can see how diversity gradually became more important, but the force still has a long way to go to reanesthetic the people of san francisco, especially in a time when some people are openly showing their lack of confidence in police. >> i think now people need to understand it's time to be a part 0 help make that change, because we are in a big transition nationwide. >> well, the contra costa county sheriff's office is asking for the public's help after a series of thefts. one house was burglarized three times in just two days, and several bronze fa statues were stolen. the first happened on july 15th, and then police were called back to that same home twice the next day. you're see something pictures of the stolen statues that
8:43 am

8:48 am
you know, the instruction of learning all of the techniques to be able to actually factory indicate a bicycle, which is a lot to learn in a short period of time for an adult, so that a young person could do this is very impressive. >> you said this was actually created by somebody who said i go to the grocery store for my mom a lot, and i'm tired of walking home with all of the bags. >> correct. we encourage kids to think about a bike not just as something that somebody would use daily, but to think about it in a crete eightive and personal way. what is the bike going to do for you? and for this, this kid, you know, is tired of carrying groceries on a bike. it's not the easiest thing to do. and so he warned to build a bicycle he can carry groceries with, and this is a good design and a good example of giving the kids an opportunity to be creative, and letting them have
8:49 am
the freedom toes more that. >> reporter: so they get to create something cool, and then get to take it home when they're done. >> and in terms of taking it home to ride around with your friends in the neighborhood, you get to be the superstar of your community. so it's amazing. >> i want to point you behind us may ill, who said there will be some bikes that folks will be able to come and ride, but on the back side, these are bikes that will also be able to -- you'll also be able to get on and take for a spin. it's going to be a lot of turn going on out here. there's going to be a bike parade for the kids. there are going to be contests out here. if you can fix a flat in 30 seconds or less, there's going to be a contest to see who can do it the fastest. who can lock up their bike the fastest. there's going to be food and music. there's going to a lot going on. i own a bike. i don't get on it very often,

is caring. because covering heals faster. to seal out water, dirt and germs, cover with a water block clear bandage from band-aid brand. happying today, it is round two of the championship in tahoe. steve young, jerry rice, and, of course, steph curry, there he is with the jam. warriors fans can rest assured, judging by that dunk, that along the golf course there, that steph looks like he has recovered from his play-off injuries, but hoops definitely coming more naturally to him
8:58 am
than golf. steph now tied for 32nd, 32nd. >> steph did have to pull out of next months oh 0 him picks to recover from his injury this season, but the u.s. men's basketball team still has plenty of warriors plays, kevin durant, draymond green, and klay thompson. last night durant scored 23 points as the u.s. romped argentina 111-74. the u.s. team has an exhibition game tomorrow in los angeles, and then will be at oracle tuesday night. >> well, hillary clinton is making hire pick initial. if just a few minutes, she'll officially make her announcement. we'll have live coverage coming up.
8:59 am
9:00 am
did any of you watch that convention in cleveland. it's hard to believe they spent so much time talking about me, and to time talking about jobs, or education, or health care! >> all right. clinton on the campaign trail talking about the republican national convention as she gets ready to kick off the dnc next week, but first, she officially
9:01 am
introducing her v.p. pick. >> all right. you're taking a live look at what's happening in miami right now. we are waiting for hillary clinton to step to the podium to formally introduce her v.p. pick. tim kaine. of course it was done all over social media yesterday. so we've been talking, talking about this, but this is the formal announcement. we'll take it to you know live as it happens, so we'll keep an eye on that podium over there in miami. welcome to mornings on 2. >> good morning. >> a morning full of politics, a lot he of interest right now. last week's focus clearly on the republican convention, now shifting to the democratic convention. >> that's right. we talked about this announcement. it's formal today.
9:02 am
but yesterday on twitter, this is where she announced her pick for a running mate. >> here is clinton's announcement on twitter that she posted. kaine is fluent in spanish, and a classic who spent time as a missionary as a young man. he said he personally opposes abortion. >> tim kaine, also a governor of the key battle ground of virginia. he was sworn into congress back in 2013, served on the armed forces committees. he's 58, graduated from harvard law, married with three children. >> here is more information about the democratic nominee for vice president. he has been a favorite of barack obama since 2008, and was on president obama's short list for v.p. according to clinton. kaine has never lost an election in his political career. and before becoming a
9:03 am
politician, he was an attorney who specialized in civil rights and fair housing issues. his wife, ann holton, is the virginia secretary of education. >> ross was covering the republican national convention, now he going to philadelphia to cover the democratic convention, and we'll have updates continuously on line at ktvu.com. >> hillary clinton formally introducing her returning mate, have a is have a senator tim kaine. they are set to make that in the battleground of florida. >> this is take place on the campus of in miami. i think we can go back to those live pictures to check out. we are still waiting, obviously, for hillary clinton to take the stage. sometimes they start at 9:00, and sometimes they start a little bit later, but, again, this is an issue of momentium, as well, be going into the convention, again, which starts
9:04 am
on monday, trying to get, you know, everyone excited, and ready to go in terms of that. so we are keeping an eye on this. i wonder if we can, as we're waiting for this, bring in joe, who is san francisco state university professor standing here waiting for us, as we are going to listen to what she has to say. do we expect any real surprises? thanks for joining us on site, i should say. >> i think it will be a basic introduction. it's possible he'll say some words in spanish. it's noteworthy, of course, she picked florida to do this. florida is a battleground state, a swing state. there's a large cuban population, but there are other people who are hispanic or latino living in florida, as well. and it's an important state for a democrat to be able to win, because the road to the white house usually goes from the south to the southeast, and florida is a key state. so being able to pitch to
9:05 am
latino and hispanic voters is important. many in the community there are are a little conner is vat isive on lots of issues, and might be drawn otherwise to mr. trump's rhetoric. >> we saw that last week with dominic reaching out to latino community in his acceptance speech. so really it proving to be a key demographic that both sides need to win to win this election. >> very much so. we were talking about these voters, and someone referred to them as a minority, and i said, you know, they're actually not a minority anymore, if we're count big the numbers. certainly in terms of political power, it's marginalized, but there are a lot of them, and if they vote, they will -- in the state of california, they will be the majority voting bloc in everybody bothers to vote, and certainly nationally, they're more important. this is the tricky road that dominic goes, because either time he or the republican party talk about immigration, people who are hispanic or latino view that as code for bashing
9:06 am
spanish speaking people. you never hear them talking about canadian speaking, or from the north. the wall is always down there. and the irony is that many of these people, like the v.p. mom my, are practicing catholics, whose views on abortion, or, like, marriage equality, or other things, are probably more in line with republicans, but they stop supporting republicans the moment they start talking about immigration. >> the work still needs to be done, so he can maybe hit latino voters and hit in the battle ground state of miami. bernie supporters are not so quick to say we can get behind him. they are still needing to be convinced that if they are sanders supporters, and, as you said, your students are sanders because they don't like hillary clinton, does kaine -- >> they were drawn to sanders for other reasons. a lot of college age students
9:07 am
liked him talking about student tuition. and that probably won't happen in their lifetimes, but -- >> so will kaine be able to say to them, you don't have bernie, but you have me, you have hillary? >> theoretically, but as i said, kaine supported trade legislation that impacted jobs in this country that sanders opposed, and to the extents that sanders is openly critical of his position, this might reflect back on this. the v.p. is an important position about this, but most voters, i've never seen where voters voted for or are against somebody because of their returning mate with the possible exception of john mccain picking sarah palin. once she gave an interview, everybody said what was he thinking? but in the end, he was going to lose that election anyway. >> this has been such an inconventionling year in terms of candidates, in terms of what
9:08 am
some would say dominic's improbable rise as a mom knee. hillary clinton was initially the odds on favorite, but had problems west bernie sanders, now seems like they are picking conventional picks as a running made. what does that mean? >> well, it means that both candidates have come back to the middle, which you have to do in the general election. in primaries, you usually speak to your base. and trump, why doubt believes a lot of the positions he took in this, i've watched him for years, i know that he's not someone who advocates against abortion rights, and i believe that he is not bigoted towards gay and lesbian people, but her sort of allowed people to believe that about him, because that's what you have 20 too when you're trying to pitch and woo to people who aren't even sure if you're a rep an that that point. in the general election, you come back to the middle, because that's where mote voters are who will participate
9:09 am
in the elections, ask you have to take moderated positions. >> could those earlier positions be a drag going towards november? i've seen some hillary clinton adds which basically allow dominic to speak for himself. and so if he's had this rhetoric he has used before about minority communities, building a wall, seems like there's an easy path for hillary clinton simply to run what dominic has -- >> she'll definitely do that. the only problem her, and i won't say this is the only problem, he has some challenges, is that her personal negatives with a lot of voters are still pretty high. she's part of a dynasty that's been around for a long time. i would have to say i think there is probably some gender biases if this, as well, people are harder on her, clinton, as a woman, in some ways. some of the criticism, to be honest, a little irrational, or not supported by the evidence, but people cling to those beliefs and don't like her. >> she has some work to do, as well. we should mention that we are
9:10 am
standing by awaiting for hillary clinton to speak in florida, to formally announce her vice president because of tim kaine. we've been waiting for it to happen this morning. there you see the podium, and a wider shot of all of the forecasts there for this announcement. it was supposed to start at 9:00, as these things tend to do, they don't start exactly on time, but that is the place that we are keeping an eye on, as you can see, the podium is now empty. we assume someone else is going to come thrum to do another introduction, as that comes by. so it is one of those mornings that we're right smack in the middle of two conventions, the reimold just watched -- the rnc wraps up, the dnc heading our way. in terms of just i think -- i want to, really quickly -- the rnc had some surprises in what people would say. the dnc seems to be maybe more
9:11 am
of is that the united front they want to say, look, we've got it together. we are the stronger, more, you know, steady ticket? >> i think so. the jargon that campaigns and conventions oftentimes traffic in start with the words message discipline. right? you stay on message, and discipline means you don't veer from that. that's something mr. trump is notorious at not doing, right? and it does mean that sometimes thinks look overly staged and scheduled, like watching an awards show that clicks, and all of the presenters are on and off, and you'll see that hair. what you is all with the rnc was more drama. bitter rivals giving speeches, not giving speech, and a wife who it was accused of plagessism, and there was a lot of drama to that. so it was good theater in a lot of ways. this will be a more normal convention for the democrats.
9:12 am
democrats are going to be very careful to make sure that the audience of people surrounding shear lot more diverse than one you saw at the republican convention when it was noteworthy to see one or two our three african-americans are. >> and paul ryans tweet, that really -- >> yeah. and here it will -- you'll -- that will be the big difference. and the argument she wants to make, symbolically, is i speak for everybody, donald speaks for a very narrow slice of america. >> all right. we're going to keep an eye on this, keep you here, and then hit a couple of top stories and come back, because we have some other news to talk about, but then we'll keep an eye on florida. and thank you very much. >> let's turn now to afghanistan. new this morning, an explosion did rock a large demonstration in the capital. this is the first footage of the attack we got into the newsroom this morning. the casualty toll is now actually at 800. 231 other -- at 800 -- at 80.
9:13 am
231 others have been hurt. the human rights group amnesty international said the bombing northern straights the utter disregard that they have for human life. police in munich searches for a motive at a shooting there at a shopping mall. the killed nine people before turning the gun on himself. earlier this morning, police announced they had found him to be a 18-year-old munich man who was under psychiatric care, and there was no indication he had ties to isis. police shut down the city's entire mass transit system, as well as the city's busiest roadways. it now appears that the suspect they have over 0ed as the
9:14 am
shooter was the only shooter. >> i heard several shots, four or five, and screamed. went out on to the balcony, and saw that somebody was running around there in the parking level with a handgun and shouting. then i heard people screaming. >> police say many of those killed were teenagers. 16 people were wounded in the gunfire. three of those victims still listed in critical condition. >> here if the bay area, dozens of travelers looking to fly to munich yesterday had to adjust their plans. we found passengers on direct flights to munich from the san jose airport that had to switch their flight so they could flight into frank ford instead. we caught up with a couple vacationing in germany who said they can't believe that an attack happened so close to their home. >> we don't have attachment to terrorism. munich is dear to us.
9:15 am
my father lives in munich. >> no one was changing their travel plans that we talked to yesterday. certainly we have seen that happen with other mass shootings. >> and we are on standby right now, waiting for hillary clinton to make her formal announcement for her v.p. pick. we will continue monitoring miami florida, where that tick is expected to come any minute now.
9:16 am
9:17 am
9:18 am
we have pedal fest over in jack london square. romo is over there taking part in this east bay biking tradition. >> pedalfest a fun event for the whole family. looks like you're maybe at a bike repair statement or something like that now? >> reporter: almost. almost. so to kick this big event off, we're going to have a kids bike parade. in order to have a parade, you need a did decorated bike. i have here with me the founders and those that run a bike team. this organization group has been around for about 10 years now. i have r.b. and baby champ with me. this goes way beyond decorating bikes. but first, let's talk about the program. r.b.? >> so, yeah, our program,
9:19 am
basically we use the creativity by using duct tape and spray paint to make awesome bikes. >> reporter: so they come and decorate their bikes, but this isn't just an after-school program type of thing, this is to keep kids if schools. what do you need to do to be part of the team? >> you have to have at least a 2.5 gpa, joy to have your own -- you have to decorate your own bike, and you have to volunteer at the shed. the address is 6833 international boulevard, and we're accepting all volunteers and donations, as well. >> reporter: so they come to a shop, and here is an example of what they maybe do with their bike? >> yeah, this is alumn null foil tank on a customized bike. we put the foil on, duct tape, spray paint.
9:20 am
whatever you need to make a beautiful bike, you know, decorating. >> reporter: so you guys will be out here before the parade starts, but you'll be out here to the entire day, as well. so the kids can come by even after the parade, decorate their bike. this is just one of several things that will be going on here today. there will be a bike parade, rodeo, a contest. there will be food, music, and everything bicycle. so come out and have is fun at jack london square. it will be a warm day today. let's start with the hot spot. who is ready to hit a hundred degrees? is s00-plus, for areas like antioch. 90s for santa rosa. around the bay, not too bad. upper 70s for oakland. get to pacifica, it's a beautiful one. 70 degrees or so, as we get

reflect that back up on me. >> right now we are going to live to one of the west stop on the walk at la fay it's park. that is where the director, jill, is live to tell us a little bit more. how is the walk going so far this morning? >> reporter: the walk is going great this morning. thanks so much for having us. we have the walk for breast cancer, 39 miles, two days. our walker walking all around the city of san francisco, over the golden gate bridge today, and walking to raise aware conditions and money for breast cancer. every three minutes someone in the united states is diagnosed with breast cancer.
9:23 am

trade negotiations we've done and the different agreements we've seen it having also been tied to manufacturing being moved offshore. a lot of union jobs were lost when that happened. labor traditionally democratic, but it's susceptible to persuasion from mr. trump in the same way that labor surprisingly went for people like ronald reagan back in 1980. usually democrats, but they liked his messaging. so ground game will move to that part of it, as well. remains to be be seen, though, whether the trump campaign under near management will have the ability to turn out the troops, walking, knocking on doors, making calls. on that front real quickly, if mrs. clinton is late to this, only one reason. probably because she's speaking to some really wealthy donors. >> we are told now maybe 10:00, so we'll follow that for you and cult in as our show wraps up. thanks for coming in. we have lots of politics still
