5:23 pm
cleary. the new york primary is just over a week away. in order to vote in that primary, it is a closed race. you had to register last year october 9th. two people who missed the deadline, two of donald trump's children. ivanka and eric. donald spoke about this on "fox and friends" this morning. take a listen. >> they didn't register in time. so they feel very, very guilty. but it's fine. i understand that. i think they have to register a year in advance and they didn't. so eric and ivanka i guess won't be voting. >> are you cutting off their allowance? yes. >> they're also in their mid 20s. and ivanka is doing pretty well for herself these days. >> you have to think for yourself. you can't sign up at the
5:24 pm
minute and i read that that might actually hurt donald in new york. even though they're supporting him, they can't vote in the primary. maybe he did decide very close to the deadline to get on the ballot in the first place. >> i'm not going to read too far into it, but those two are in trouble. so both the president and the vice president, they have said they will not endorse a candidate in this race. that is actually fairly standard practice. but in an exclusive interview, joe biden said he would like to see a woman elected. some might read into that and says does that mean hillary clinton then his staff they actually tried to stop the interview. >> would you like to see. >> i would like to see a woman elected. >> that's it. >> no, that's all right. i don't mind -- i'm not getting into that -- >> i'd like to ask one more question. >> the president and i are not going to endorse because we
5:25 pm
when we ran said let the party decide. >> so you there go with that. that's the one thing at least there is's that factor he may go off the rails, may go off the tracks and he says i'm going to keep on going. >> i think he could say that without necessarily endorsing a candidate. >> it's not a big surprise even if he is in that camp. >> exactly. >> the last story we've got is about bernie sanders. he is working hard to give hillary clinton a run for her money. they just released an advertisement that is produced by spike lee. you might recall spike lee endorsed bernie sanders, but he has been a big proponent of the candidate in this race. take a little look at this advertisement that he put together for us. >> people of color have a deeply invested interest in what bernie sanders brings to us. >> he sees us as a whole people,
5:26 pm
that's why i'm voting for bernie sanders. >> i'm bernie sanders and i approved this message. >> so that was definitely taking aim at the fact that they say hillary clinton appeals more to black voters and that's an effort for bernie sanders to appeal to black voters and also voters of color in this advertisement to get them excited about him as a candidate and maybe appeal to them in new york. we'll see if it works. >> up ahead, hundreds of protesters arrested today at the u.s. cap tol attempting to take a stand. >> and could last minute amendments to noah's law jeopardize the bill? >> plus a royal meeting, the viral campaign that helped a 93-year-old cafe owner meet prince william and duchess kate in india. >> a new service promising to make your boyfriend better and bring back the element of surprise. can't wait.

5:35 pm
death. >> reporter: back with you now. the deal is this. they have been negotiating all day long. noah's law was passed in the house and passed in the senate but these were two different versions of this bill and that has been the hangup. what we've been told is negotiators reached a deal. who has been here every single moment in every single hearing? that would have been the father of officer noah leotta. his father told us today that he is gratified it's moving forward but it does not replace the loss in his family. >> this can't fill the devastation of the hole in my heart. it can't fill what i'm missing for the rest of my life. but it can give me some solace that his

5:45 pm
out ahead of that cold front. here's what to expect as we put future cast in motion. by early tomorrow 5:00 a.m. we've got rain and plenty of it moving through. i expect it to cause some slowdowns just about everywhere tomorrow the heaviest rain falls from 5:00 to 7:00 a.m. then from 7:00 to 9:00 the showers push off towards the south and east. by noon i think most of the rain has cleared, just some clouds. those clouds will hang on off towards our south and east. but sunshine moving in quickly tomorrow afternoon. like i said, it will be a lot like today only difference is we're behind the cold front so cooler air coming through and it will be much more of a jacket needed afternoon. how much rain through tomorrow afternoon? not much. probably only .5 to maybe closer to an inch if you are in some higher downpours. following that rain we are in a much quieter pattern through the of the week. dry weather settles in tomorrow afternoon and it will stay that way.
5:46 pm
