10:12 pm
10:13 pm
10:14 pm
republican presidential candidate mitt romney is holding a posh retreat in park city, utah this weekend. to get invited you have to raise at least $100,000 for the romney campaign. that buys you the chance to rub elbows with republican leaders
10:15 pm
like senator john mccain, former florida governor jeb bush, former secretary of state condoleezza rice and strategist karl rove. joining me now for some insight on the event is fox 5 political analyst mark plotkin. so, mark, it seems karl rove's attendance has raised flags for campaign finance watchdogs. why? >> here's the deal, maureen. he is the head of a superpac called american crossroads and the superpacs raise unlimited money. there's no limit to individual contributions and they're supposed to not be coordinated with the official romney campaign or for that matter, any political campaign and there's karl rove's picture being escorted in the front page of the new york ifles and also on the washington post and he -- times and also on the washington post and he was scheduled to speak. so this seems to be a direct contravention of the spirit and
10:16 pm
letter of the law is there shouldn't be coordination between these supposed independent superpacs and these campaign committees and i think you're going to have to make a very creative point to say that how if you're a speaker and if you're there where there's strategy sessions taking place that you're independent of the campaign committee. i'm surprised the democrats haven't yelled and screamed or republicans would yell and scream if it happened in a democratic gathering. >> back in december romney decried the rise of superpacs like rove saying they had been a disaster for the political system. so why did his camp let rove attend leaving the door open to this controversy? >> i congratulate you on the research because that's the quote he made during the primary. now he wants everybody in the fold and when it cops to money and when it comes -- comes to money and when it comes to unified party support, i guess they feel they can look the other way.
10:17 pm
>> romney has a long short list of vp candidates. those people are also in attendance, but there was someone noticeably absent. why don't you tell us who wasn't there and what this might signify. >> yes. it was marco rubio who they've written two books about him. he's written his own book. he's on everybody's short list. it's very strange because romney at first said he's not being vetted and then he went out of his way to say he is being vetted, but he did not appear at this con fab which makes things even more confusing and perplexing when it comes to rubio. >> let me point out this, though, another person not there was virginia governor bob mcdonnell. >> no. he was there. >> but he has said very publicly he's not being vetted for the vp post. >> today i called not once but twice to the very able tucker martin, director of
10:18 pm
communications who said -- i said what's going on with the vetting? is he still not being vetted? he said we do not comment on vetting, which is a different explanation and different content and substance than before which maybe gives rise to the thought that he is being vetted. >> and since we're on governor mcdonnell let's talk about this controversy at university of virginia where he is giving the ultimatum to the board of visitors saying hey, fix this problem with the ousted president teresa sullivan or all of you are gone. why is he getting involved? >> at first i think he was really taking some justifiable criticism, said i couldn't want to micromanage and he stayed away. then he realized how much of an uproar this very well acclaimed state university that is considered a public ivy compared with university of california is one of the best publicly funded school in the country he felt he had to get
10:19 pm
involved and he was vacillating not taking a role. so he wrote this very stern letter and said and it was confirmed today that if they don't come to some resolution on wednesday, one, the vice rector has already resigned, that all 15 will be fired for cause. now what should be pointed out is helen dragas who is the rector or chair of the board of visitors, her term expires as long as do five other appointees on the board of visitors july 1st which is a few days away. so governor mcdonnell is definitely going to put his stamp on uva whether or not before he wanted to sort of go back from this decision making process. >> mark plotkin, i'm being given the wrap. we could talk about this all night, again your insight always valuable. connecting maryland and d.c. for bikers and pedestrians, the u.s. department of transportation awarded the district a huge grant for miles of new pathways. fox 5's bob barnard has the details.
10:20 pm
>> reporter: the district's department of transportation will be getting $10 million to help pay for an additional 4 miles of bike and pedestrian pathways along the anacostia river walk trail, a proposed 20- mile route connecting the national mall to maryland. >> it is very important because one of the ways that we think that the reason it's going to continue to grow is not by automobile, but by other modes of traps and the trail gives us an opportunity to -- transportation and the trail gives us an opportunity to have a healthy community. >> reporter: the feds will pay for a new pathway along the kenilworth gardens trail behind the pepco plant off benning road near the old d.c. landfill, the trail designed to connect 16 waterfront neighborhoods to the anacostia river and places like the navy yard. >> it's acceptable, but we can stand for an improvement. i'm all for it myself and if that's the situation and what d.c. wants, i'm behind it 100%. >> reporter: the anacostia
10:21 pm
bike and pedestrian path is just one of 47 infrastructure improvement projects in 34 states and the district of columbia being funded by federal grants administered by the u.s. department of transportation. secretary ray lahood made the announce. in a telephone conference this morning. >> these projects create good jobs today and build a stronger american economy for tomorrow. >> reporter: ddot's 11th street bridge project is a $400 million deal. >> because the interstate system was never completed in the district of columbia we had this phenomenon what commuters had to go through our local communities to get to their places of work. >> reporter: the 11th street bridge project was designed to correct that. replacing the frederick douglass bridge is next. >> while we do our best to take care of the infrastructure at some point you got to stop putting on band-aids and you actually need to replace it and with frederick douglass bridge, we're at that point we need to replace it.

10:27 pm
oversight. that hasn't happened. >> reporter: carolyn jenkin's daughter was killed in the accident. jenkins has attended many safety board meetings following the crash and is pleased with the progress made. >> i think they're doing a great job, though. i will give them that. they're doing a great job improving the safety of the train. >> reporter: to pay for the needed safety improvements it will take millions of dollars from congress, money that metro's general manager hopes will be approved. >> we are hopeful and we have strong support from our congressional delegation for full funding that has been promised to us by congress and we hope that comes about because if it doesn't, we would slip back. >> reporter: matt ackland, fox 5 news. >> the plaque on the bridge will not be the only memorial to the victims of the metro crash. mayor gray says there are still plans to come up with a memorial park near the crash site. coming up a historic day in egypt after the country's first competitive election. the muslim brotherhood candidate is declared

nearly two dozen homes near rocky mountain national park have been destroyed in a brand- new colorado wildfire burning near colorado springs this. one started just this weekend and has already eaten up 3 square miles. as fox's anita vogel explains, firefighters seem to be losing ground while those in other states are gaining.
10:47 pm
>> reporter: this hasn't been a great fire season for the state of colorado. if you live there, you might feel like you're under assault by the flames. let's look first at the waldo canyon fire. it broke out around noon saturday near a popular hiking area in local local springs. it continues to spread today to about 3 square miles. there is an evacuation order in the area for about 11,000 people as the flames have come within a 1/4-mile of structures. 450 firefighters are on the scene. meanwhile the high park fire just west of ft. collins continues to be a problem. last week it was 60% contained. now it's dropped back to 45% containment. hot temperatures and gusty winds are speeding the flames and prompting the possibility of more homes lost and certainly more evacuations. nearly 1,000 as of the last couple days. >> after two weeks of that fire getting established in there it's still trying to come alive. the resistance to control and the persistence of this fire is
10:48 pm
pretty unusual for conditions that we normally see. >> reporter: and some good news in utah where the evacuation orders have been lifted in a fire that was said to have started after a target shooting incident. the dump fire as it was called is now 40% contained. at the height of it roughly 1,100 people were evacuated after 6,000 acres had been burned. it's the 20th time this year target shooting has sparked a fire in that state and the forecast is calling for more hot and dry temperatures today. the national weather service suggests temperatures in colorado to be hovering around 100 degrees for most of the day. anita vogel, fox news. people in the south are getting ready for tropical storm debby. residents in galveston, texas, are preparing even though they haven't been put on a tropical storm watch yet. forecasters say the storm has maximum sustained winds of 50 to 60 miles per hour with the center of debby expected to linger in the gulf the next few days with no landfall in the
10:49 pm
immediate forecast. >> may have no effect on us or if it does have an effect it could be a slighting if on the coast. it is a good wake-up call to remind us it's hurricane season and we need to be prepared. >> as debby strengthens the storm could be near hurricane force winds by tomorrow night. >> closer to home we have i hope to say nothing to complain about and nothing to worry about just yet, nice weather. >> it was beautiful today. a little humid but kind of nice. i was outside today in the beautiful sunshine enjoying it. so i want to say it wasn't all that bad and temperature-wise we were into the low 90s pretty much everywhere. >> earlier you almost threatened it's going to get hotter. >> that's not a threat. that's summer. >> it really is, i know. >> let's look outside. i want to give a shout out to the central farm markets in bethesda where i was today enjoying wonderful produce that sells there and the vendors
