7:46 am
could push forward on judge brett kavanaugh's nomination. and the miscalculation came when senator flake changed his mind. it was that fast and the confrontation in the elevator by the two women that had been previously attacked, that was a turning moment. but the senate lost a level of respect, the dig any of two individuals and the dignity of the senate came to a clash. as a result, we get this fbi investigation. it is a hard deadline, one week friday by this time next week. >> let's go a little deeper into the jeff flake thing. it was powerful. he's going into the elevator, and you see them stop the elevator. you hear them talk about being assaulted, very emotional to say the least least. he looked very uncomfortable as this was all going on and

7:49 am
senators in states that donald trump, jr. won. that will be -- donald trump won. and that will be an important element. and we're seeing some changes in the state of florida, a democratic senator is running for re-election. and the republicans are hoping to pick up that seat. but we're seeing a tightening in nevada. all the sudden the democrats may have nevada this is a huge moment this past week and we're seeing that play out in the mid- terms that are really right around the corner. >> they are. thank you very much for your insight. we appreciate you joining us here on the show. and we look forward to talking more in the coming days. >> thank you. let's go over to rosemary orozco who is watching our changing weather. and she has put raindrops in

9:05 am
and we've offloaded all of the support on that beam, then we can start our analysis of what happened.>> reporter: official speculated that the cracks could be related to the beams fabrication, installation or the center's design. on sunday workers will begin to put of the shoring system designed to relieve the weight on the beams. the authority says it will conduct a review of the permanent repair plan and it will do another review on the building's construction overall. we are awaiting the materials to shop today and the real work begins on this temporary fix tomorrow. hopefully by the end of next week, ek the center will be back up and running. they will soon be making improvements to the buses and facility. the agency was just awarded a $3.6 million federal grant for it will be used to help replace old bus agreement and upgrade

9:08 am
announcing they should hold off on a vote for up to one week so the fbi could investigate claims of sexual misconduct against brett kavanaugh. they include the allegation made by dr. christine blasey ford, she said he sexually assaulted her while they were in high school 36 years ago. flakes change of heart perhaps came in part because he was confronted in the senate building. this was taught by two women protesters on video, who are also sexual assault survivors.>> look at me when i'm talking to you, you are telling me that my vote doesn't matter. that what happened to me doesn't matter and that you were going to let people who do these things into power. that's what you are telling me when you vote for him. >> and the last are we did talk to sonoma state political professor about the twist and
9:09 am
turns of this confirmation n hearing. and the impact it's having on both the democratic and republican parties.>> less than 24 hours ago, judge brett kavanaugh was going to be confirmed. that's gone sideways. his nomination is not doomed but certainly republicans made a massive miscalculation in the midst of midterms about 38 days away and that could be problems for them in november. three women's including dr. fort have accused brett kavanaugh of sexual misconduct. chauncey said the fbi investigator will be limited in scope while it's unclear what that means, agents can interview accuses and witnesses and gather additional evidence or details that could help cooperate this story. agents do not make judgments on credibility or significance of the allegations. a gofundme for the family of dr. ford raised more than $528,000 in 10 days before it stopped accepting donations for the original goal was only $150,000.

9:11 am
with the senate hearings. >> the director said it's common for their hotline to experience a spike in calls when sexual assaults are in the news but thursday represented a very unusually high search. cause included victims coming forward for the very first time, and some victims who are his experiences were triggered by the hearings themselves. if you are a victim of sexual assault you can reach out to the national sexual assault hotline toll-free, you see the number on your screen. and locally you can reach the bay area women against rape on his 24-hour hotline. shares of tesla motors l 15% after the sce is -- sec is suing governor jerry brown. they said he had a verbal agreement to help finance a deal that would take the company private. the sec alleges that musk misled investors last month that he had funding secured to carry
