this race suffer any major damage? josh: i would say no, she was discipline throughout but toward the end of the debate, she seemed to have enough of the attacks and started challenging a little bit. if it had gone more than five minutes, who knows what would have happened. it is an election cycle and the unexpected seems to be the norm. tom: our granite state debates nt second congressional district. on friday, the first congressional district candidates take it on. >> find more on the politics page of our website, wmur.com. also we have complete information on how to vote, including finding your polling place, voter i.d. rules, and how to register on tuesday. tom: breaking news from lebanon,

of new england and still remains there this hour. the temperatures up to 80 degrees, the record is 96 set way back in 1881. 60's and low 70's, the dew points are still up. the temperatures in dew points close to the same at the coast and in a few other spots. visibility has come down a little bit. at the shore. it will feel back in at other times. watch out for the visibility to dam in spots as we go through the overnight stretch. not a big fall from here on out because we have overcast skies. humidity is up so we only go back up a couple of degrees in many spots.
rise in a big way tomorrow afternoon and into the day on friday, possibly not as hot over the weekend but still quite warm. then we get into a fall feel as we go into early next week. here are the remnants of hermine, continuing to weaken but the circulation still continuing to rotate south of new england. the front back in the great lakes gets a little closer and a subtle motion off outta here by tomorrow afternoon and tomorrow night. the best bet for show chance will be tomorrow night, full sun on friday and a toasty day with temperatures in the mid to upper 80's. possibly near 90 in a couple of areas. low clouds again for tonight, it will brighten up in the afternoon. clouds will give way to partial sunshine in northern and western
the fog and low clouds may not part and in the shower and thunderstorm chance built-in tomorrow night. we really could use the rain, but cannot promise too much out of this front. behind it it dries out big time. look at the clearing taking over for friday. that's when temperatures go into the upper 80's. saturday, partial sunshine, and afternoon shower, possible mid 80's and sunday there could be an early morning shower or thunder shower cin a beautiful
stretch next week. a little below average, refreshing fall like temperatures at night.
they hosted post tonight at the derryfield school. a bird flew into a transformer. 1st tobias esche in front of the net gets it back to louka masset who puts it in the top right corner for a goal. 1-0 snhu. ryan reynolds has a wide open net and misses left. a hat trick for ryann bukemia, another player from france. 4-0 snhu. no word on the condition of that bird tonight but i'm guessing it is not good. now to the nightly playoff chase in the american league east division. the red sox, blue jays, and orioles are all fighting for first place. the sox are on the field at the san diego padres right now. looking good in the bottom of the seven, up by three runs with david price pitching well. travis shaw with a 2 run homer and 3 rbi. dustin pedroia with a 2 run double. this is the end of their road trip out west. the sox play at the toronto blue
starlin castro with a solo home run to get the yankees on the board. they sweep toronto, so a red sox win moves them into sole possession of first place. red sox play at the blue jays friday night. an afternoon game for the orioles at the rays. 2-1 orioles. but tampa would takes the lead when nick franklin 2-run homers to right center. they go on to sox in first place right now. if they hold on to win, all the teams under them would add another half game. the patriots are jimmy's team now, at least for the first four games. quarterback jimmy garoppolo talked to the media today. he was asked what tom brady said to him before brady left on his suspension. >> it wasn't anything crazy, just goodbye and good luck,
he is very supportive of us, and we appreciate that. jamie college football saturday : on wmur. michigan plays at noon, ohio state at 3:30. take against tennessee, all those games live on abc9. the big day is almost here. the new unh football stadium will until then, unh is practicing and working to improve from week to week. they are coming off a 31-0 loss to a very good san diego state team. we asked coach what he learned about his team out west. >> we have kids are going to compete. we cap ball for the most part, we tackled very well, played physical enough to keep a great running back over 100 yards. we got to do a better job of being more physical in the
things we need to do, we did some good things out there. jamie: there are still a few remaining tickets for that. friday night football. getting ready for week #2. 17 games around the state. concord at salem should be a good game. join us friday night. david ortiz on or the padres game tonight. he uses the least for the rest of his life. he was given a surf board by the padres. tom: still to con. shelley: honesty is always the
oil wells in new hampshire? you'd think so the
way kelly ayotte voted. ninety percent with the big oil koch brothers. she voted to give big oil more than $20 billion in tax breaks. they gave kelly ayotte campaign contributions. corporate special interests are spending millions supporting her campaign... like the koch brothers. kelly ayotte: paid for by big oil; voting for big oil. us. dscc is responsible for
>> you if it is hands on deck's. that is so much of who we are. and you help us come together and support each other, and you do it in a way that makes sure we are always paying tribute to our fallen heroes and their families. shelley: the hundred club has distributed over $240,000 in the past two years alone. the honesty of one rochester boy paid off in his favor. 7-year-old breyden wentworth found a 100 dollar bill earlier this year and turned it in. after trying to find the owner and waiting the required time, police gave breyden a check for $100. officers say breyden showed a high degree of moral character and integrity. shelley: good job. a lot of people trying to make plans for the weekend. mike: it is looking good. a slight chance of the shower
