5:12 pm
vaughn, wmur news 9. josh: national eyes on this one, 55 million already spent on that senate race. democrats are also looking ahead to november by drawing a clear line between their candidates and that of the g.o.p. the chair of new hampshire democratic party ray buckley and d.n.c. committee woman kathy sullivan held a news conference in manchester today and they took aim at gubernatorial nominee chris sununu just hours before that race was called. although he did run as a moderate, democrats >> he's going to try to pretend that he is not the extreme right wing candidate that he is. he is going to try to run like he's charlie baker of massachusetts, but if he's ever elected governor of new hampshire he will govern like paul le page of maine. josh: democrats will have to work hard to make their candidate recognizable. although van ostern did win the primary election, our last poll

40 miles per hour. but it is stuck in places jean just mentioned, that means the rain continues to fall that way and winds continue to drive the wave action and tropical storm warnings up for the southeastern coast of the united states. the storm, however, because it is crawling and the jet stream not going to drive it anywhere means that it just stays put in and around that same area for the next two or even three days before it starts to fall apart. around here, not all that tropical, but it was a built more humid than it a better chance of showers and storms, notice the time lapse photos over new found lake around 3:00. we did get a quick downpour, some thunder, now the clouds are breaking as the cold front has moved through. it is not clear at the coast right now, that's where is there a heavy downpour, in and around the newfield area towards portsmouth. if you live in those areas as you can see by doppler radar, you are getting some beneficial rain. but unfortunately notice the back edge of this line is
