bank. and when he went to washington, he voted to change the laws... to benefit wall street and banks like his. voting to gut consumer protections that crack down... on predatory lending and fraud. to take money from you and... line the pockets of wall street millionaires like... himself. pat toomey: out for himself, all in for wall street. dscc is responsible for the content of this advertising. i've seen what can happen as the result of hate. my son matt was murdered in laramie, wyoming, in 1998. he was befriended by two men in a bar
who pretended to be gay. they offered him a ride home, and when he was in their car, they robbed him and beat him. they drove matt out to the prairie and tied him to a split-rail fence, then beat him some more and left him for dead. in the aftermath of matt's death, my family saw the best of america in the love and support we were shown. so when i see the hate that donald trump has brought to his campaign for president, it terrifies me. i'd like to punch him in the face, i'll tell ya. ahh, i don't know what i said, uhh, i don't remember. he's a mexican. i could stand in the middle of fifth avenue and shoot somebody, and i wouldn't... words have an influence. violence causes pain. hate can rip us apart. i know what can happen as the result of hate, and donald trump should never be our president. priorities usa action is responsible for the content of this advertising. priorities usa action i've always taken on the status quo. in harrisburg, they didn't like it when i stopped their perks
and pushed for reform. as head of pennsylvania's third-largest county, i cut out wall street middlemen to protect pensions.
now, as chairman of the pennsylvania commission on crime, i'm leading the fight to stop the epidemic of heroin and opioid abuse. as attorney general, i'll prosecute anyone who scams our seniors. and i'll hold the oil and gas companies accountable to keep our drinking water safe. i'm josh shapiro. i'll be an attorney general who always fights for you. and so when i saw that,
that was completely disqualifying. i'm a republican, but this election is so much bigger than party. my son max can't live in trump world. so i'm crossing party lines and voting for hillary. i don't always agree with her, but she's reasonable. and she's smart. she can work with people to solve problems. i want to be able to tell my kids that i did the right thing when it really mattered. i'm hillary clinton and i approve this message. >> welcome back. tonight telethon giant at&t strikes a blockbuster deal to
buy entertainment conglomerate time warner for $85.4 billion. the deal would give at&t programming control of household names like hbo, cnn cartoon network and warner brothers movie studio. at&t is one of the country's largest providers of wireless phone and internet service and also recently acquired direct tv. federal antitrust regulators must approve this deal. and seven decades and countering. a towering monument to one of the most revered figures in native american history is slowly taking shape. crazy horse stands 64 stories tall so far as cbs correspondent mark albert shows us crews have blasted and hauled millions of tons of rocks but they have a long way to go. >> reporter: a monument to native american legend crazy horse is slowly taking shape high above the black hills of south dakota. for nearly 70 years crews have been blasting millions of tons of rock off the mountain the

work on the project. >> it is hard from a mile away down there. to see the changes. since the time that i started his hand area has changed immensely. >> reporter: everyone wants to know when this is this going to be finished. >> it's a hard question to answer. i don't have a exact day. if you love something and you get to work on it the rest of your life, that is an honor. >> reporter: native americans say whenever it's done, it will provide a valuable education and ensure crazy horse's place in history. mark albert for cbs3 "eyewitness news". >> all right, lauren casey is joining us now. okay, seriously like i was out earlier. [laughter] >> even though you have been telling me the entire day and night to make sure i had a heavy coat i was not ready. >> what a transition. after 80's this week, 80 yesterday and then today, mother nature, i mean -- >> it was a shock. >> i know. she's trying to get us back on track but it didn't have to be so dramatic but yes, how about
gradually but no very dramatic drop-off in temperatures on the backside of a strong cold front that came through early this morning. skies have cleared on out after that damp start to the day and a pretty looking scene right now as we get a live look at the skyline center city philadelphia but temperatures they are cool. feeling even cooler by this hearty breeze up around 15 miles per hour but we have milder temperatures in store as we head into our sunday. however, we are going to hang onto that breeze for several days, not quite as gusty as we head into the afternoon tomorrow but still generally breezy conditions and then as were he head into next week, some first 30's of the season in philadelphia. i'll let you know when to expect those but first up temperatures right now, they are chilly and we have some 30's on the board. 39 degrees right now in mount pocono. we're down into the 40's in berks county, lehigh valley. same case in trenton and sitting at 50 degrees right now wilmington. but of course we have those blustery winds to contend with. winds still kicking well after sunset around 10 to 20 miles per hour.
current wind speeds near 30 miles per hour right now in mount pocono. gusting to 41 miles per hour. yes, the season has definitely shifted and still some independent wind gusts around 20 miles per hour. overnight tonight temperatures are going to be chilly dropping back to 44 degrees in philadelphia. 35 in the poconos. we'll fall into the 40's even middle 40's along the coast and of course we're going to factor in those winds so future feels-like temperatures as we head into early tomorrow morning, if you have to head out early this sunday morning you're going have to bundle up. hopefully you can just stay under the covers because it's going to feel like 38 degrees in philadelphia, 34 in allentown, feeling like 26 in mount pocono before some of those feels-like temperatures start to he rebound pretty quickly as we head into the second half of the morning setting us up for beautiful conditions for the birds taking on the vikings tomorrow. kickoff temperature at 1 o'clock 62 degrees, so not too bad but we still will have those breezy conditions so layers probably in order but we will have some nice sunshine which we did not
start our day with today thanks to this system off to our north and east. it is continuing to exit but bringing snowfall to parts of new england right now where one to he 3-inches of snowfall is expected in this october but skies for us just continuing to clear on out although we still have clouds around up towards the poconos but generally clear sky conditions across much of the delaware valley right now. good viewing conditions for the orionid meteor shower. they are produced by the remnants of haley's comet and if you urn braving the cold tonight to check out some of these meteors, the meteor shower runs until november 7th. you'll have another chance to do so as we head into the next couple of weeks. overnight chilly 44 degrees blustery mostly clear conditions but improvement as we head into the day tomorrow, mostly sunny and milder stale bit breezy but a high temperature right around average at 64 degrees. and contending with winds down the shore and in the poconos as well. few more clouds in some of those higher elevations but nice sunshine all along the coast with temperatures up
into the middle 60's and we'll generally climb in the low to mid 60's across much of the area tomorrow expecting a high temperature in reading at 62 degrees. and as we head into monday, still right around average. still breezy conditions, mostly sunny and as we head into midweek, going to see temperatures take a bit of a step back as we led into tuesday... head into tuesday 57 for the high temperature and there are those 30's. wednesday morning 38 degrees and it will be a bit brisk as we head into thursday morning still some 30's sticking around. our next chance of rain, though, doesn't come until late day on thursday. >> he oh, yeah, but that 38 degrees just sticks out there, doesn't it. >> whew.

team in the league with a five and o record. sam bradford will return to the linc wearing vikings purple. eight weeks ago the eagles shipped sam to minnesota for a couple draft picks. sam is four and o as a starter and has not thrown an interception. >> sam looks like a different guy from when he was here so it's like -- i mean he still got good accuracy he always had that but it's just he's taken it and he's making them throws and they doing a good job whatever they doing and all i know is we just got to go out there and keep hitting him, make sure we hit him hard and stop that run. >> well, we will have much more on sammy's sleeves return to the linc tomorrow on sunday kickoff. join don bell merrill reese pat gallen and me live at the linc tomorrow at 11:30 right here on cbs3. the flyers looking to end a three game losing streak tonight at the center against the hurricanes. second period game all tied up between the orange and black, power play provorov shoots and matt read there for the redirection.
