nearby college was evacuated students and teachers at an elementary school have been asked to stay inside in case dangerous gases are released into the air right now it is not clear what started that fire. the waiting game for new jersey governor chris christy appears to be coming down to the wire the republican lawmaker is reportedly huddling with senior advisors and will make a decision about run being the president next two days if christy runs some analysts say he could face the same stumbling blocks other republicans have. tom fitzgerald is following this one. is he doing this to satisfy republican backers or is this for reel? >> i -- real. >> i talked to some staffers, they tell me this is legit, for real reconsideration really took root over the last few days, after repeatedly insisting he was not interested in this, not going to run for president, governor christy, decided he did at least owe it to the party to take a second
5:14 pm
look at all this. remember he delivered that big speech at the ronald regan library where he was urged right in front of nancy regan to run, christy just said the event made a very big impact on him whether or not it was big enough to get him into this race is a question we are going to get the answer to in a couple days. so what is going into this decision and how will it effect, could it effect the other candidates? >> right now the big concern for them laura and those other campaigns if chris christy steps into this race, he is going to become the instant front runner i am told the decision is weighing several other factors, besides just getting in the first will be family. christy and his wife mary pat have four children a couple pretty young and that will be a big factor also the calendar to consider in all this is there enough time left to register in all these primaries those other campaigns already up and running, and finally, the most important question of all perhaps is money can christy

5:16 pm
american jobs act, includes proposals that in the past have been supported by republicans and democrats alike. and if there are aspects to have bill they don't like they should tell us what it is they are not willing to go for. now the president says, this jobs bill will cost $450 billion includes tax breaks for companies that will hire and also includes higher taxes on the wealthy it should be noted everyone of these presidential candidates on the republican side oppose the president's plan. >> of course they do that is what they are supposed to say. thanks very much. supreme court started its new term today the biggest case expected to hit the docket, president obama's health care overhaul, both administration and opponents of the law filed appeals the court is expected to make a case next spring and make a ruling in june the first case is also health care related justices are hearing

5:18 pm
we heard the comment there about did dr. murray every say anything about propofol the question was no but why did he continue to have heroic treatment put on him when she was ready to pronounce him dead in the field at 12:57 p.m. in the afternoon because dr. murray wanted to have them try anything because he thought he sensed a faint pulse when they got to the hospital for an hour and 13 minutes there were chest compressions and various medications given and efforts to try to see if they could save his life and there was a point she said where one of the 14 people in the room thought they detected a faint pulse everybody stopped what they were doing there was no pulse and it was 2:26 p.m. in the afternoon they finally pronounced him dead many questions about dr. murray and propofol for instance, dr. cooper the er doctor on the stand was asked by defense do
5:19 pm
you ever use propofol she gave instances where she uses it. the defense saying, see you don't have to be. >> announcer: thesology to use propofol. if you ask attorneys, they will say it was a good witness for defense she lays out part of that timeline, defense will say she established propofol can be used by someone other than an anaethesiologist and she couldn't answer the question when did he die. that is a big question in the timeline there was only one person in the room when he died, dr. conrad murray, so you know. >> as they try to hammer out the timeline and figure out when he died i know today they had testimony from some of the cell phone companies about phone calls dr. murray made that day, explain how -- why that is so important. well, it is all about

5:21 pm
we can see the defendant and the person on the stand and judge who is in the gallery watching this? >> well, joe and katherine, michael's parents have been there since the beginning but she was not there today, and randi germaine, janet, and rivi sisters were in the courtroom and katherine and michael jackson's three children have gone off to montreal for a cirque du soleil tribute and katherine will go on to wales for the tribute over there she won't be back in the courtroom until october 10th. kind of strange his mother has been here every day. >> all right. halizeener thanks forgiving us -- hal eisner thanks forgiving us that. you can watch it live, the apple stream video live from the courtroom, for more

5:49 pm
pennsylvania, still rotating around in areas of low pressure. we will not rule out a chance for showers, after the next several hours, i don't think they will be widespread i don't thing they will be heavy at all but i think they will be spotty and localized, we will get to the overnight hours, in the forecast. 52 here in town, just crumb my, 48 gaithersburg, dulles, 51 degrees they are up and down i- 81, hagerstown, win chester temperatures there are not any better lower 50s. i guess unless you like it like this then you are probably waiting for this weather to continue. if we spread the view out pittsburgh chilly, 54, bingham and 49 degrees even new york city is not that great, 55 degrees there, a little warmer for boston, a little more removed from the storm so they have had some sunshine thereupon and again, you -- up there, and again you get out to the west this storm is not effecting the country, just gorgeous a few showers at 7:00 p.m.
5:50 pm
a few showers 9:00 p.m. a spotty shower at 11:00 p.m. wouldn't surprise me, temperatures lower 50s, to run around 50 degrees most of the evening it does look like clouds will linger one more day but it also looks like for tomorrow we begin to see a little bit in the way of sunshine here is the storm parked over the mid-atlantic. center of which is finally beginning to move off to the east, a little bit, that sen couraging news, you see a little -- that is encouraging news. you see a little bit over here, that will provide showers for us this evening. another one way over here to the west and northeast, coming up into new england and boston, we will get some rain and rotate all around this storm system, so that you give us another batch of showers tomorrow and tomorrow afternoon this is the future cast tonight at 6:00 p.m.
