6:12 am
candidate camps in the final days and hours. a live report from los angeles is coming up. a live look this morning from oakland where some of the candidates are going to be -- jerry brown is going to be there at the theater in oakland. later on we will check out where they will be and who will be voting and when. you know it's bad when the press asks if you'd take a lie detector test. meg whitman didn't tell the truth about not voting or about how long she lived in california.
6:13 am
she got caught in insider deals at goldman sachs. she changed her story about physically abusing an employee. she campaigned as tough as nails on immigration knowing her housekeeper of 9 years was undocumented. her tv ads have been condemned as false and misleading. and even her hometown newspaper said meg whitman has demonstrated "a loose relationship with the truth"
6:14 am
6:15 am
around 45 minutes from now, the gubernatorial race has been hotly debate and contentious. today in the bay joins us live with more on the race for governor. chris? >> in the polls, the race for governor was neck and neck for a long time and in the last couple of weeks see saw a gap open up. jerry brown was out on the campaign trail enjoying a 10-point lead in the polls yesterday and celebrating the san francisco giants world series win. he said he sell be out trying to persuade voters today. he is going to vote in oakland today. whitman said it's not over until it's over and her internal polls give her the edge and she is no throwing in the towel soon. she won't vote today. she did early voting last week. you listened up on that one.
6:16 am
rank choice voting is in effect today for the first time. you want to put your candidates in order of choice. a, b, and c. don't put the same candidate for all three because it only counts as the first choice and you have no second and third choice. there is another curiosity for treasurer of san pablo today. there is a chance voters could elect a candidate who passed away a month ago. charles nicholas still appears on the ballot. if elected, the council can appoint somebody or call an election. there write in candidates trying to vie for that one. we will talk about one of the other high profile races in california. we will talk about the boxer and
6:17 am
fiorina race. >> it will be heading to the polls at 7:00. >> joe matthews is the prop zero blogger and analyst and joins us live from los angeles this morning. good morning. >> good morning. >> i know you spent a lot of time at the candidates, boxer, brown, whitman. what is the mood and how has it changed? >> i think the governor's race, there is a general feeling that it's clear that brown is ahead. a very confident campaign. the brown speech in los angeles was almost the speech the day after talking about how he wanted to reach out and listen to the other side. that shows a degree of confidence. the boxer and fiorina dynamic is difference. a lot of nervousness and anxiety. the polls show boxer ahead, but there is a lot of different polls there. if there was going to be an
6:18 am
upset, i think it would be fiorina winning the race. >> let's talk about voter turn out and i know from the democratic side, you see a push to get as many people to the polls as possible. president obama was here and the first lady was here to get out the vote. what do you think is going to happen? >> i think voter turn out will be pretty low. you will see a figure talked about in the 50%, 54 or 55 or something like that. people say that sounds good. that's only a small part of the story. there a little more than 17 million registered voters, but 23.5 million californians who are adult citizens and non-felons eligible to vote. if we get 9 million people voting, that's more than 60% of folk who is are eligible to vote in california not voting. that's really the message of this election. it's this message that in state
6:19 am
elections like this one, the majority of california adults don't think their vote matters. this is a deeper conversation, but there is arguments that they're at least partly right. many of the things, particular low legislative races that we don't talk about have been decided for they get to the polls. >> that's the big thing. this might be one of the years of change where people want to change. maybe they will show up. that's the way it's gone in history. >> thank you very much for joining us early this morn. can check out joe's writing on prop zero on nbcbayarea.com and search prop zero. >> the united states supreme court will talk video gyms and at issue, the california law that is talking about the violent video games off lips to kids. >> we are following the loss in 2005.
6:20 am
>> they never ever enforced it and struck down the law in the circuit of appeals. california keeps defending it and it's before the united states supreme court. at question is whether the law the way it's written is constitutional. is it constitutional to take one media, video games and make a special case not protected by free speech? who gets to decide that? i want to point out something. we are showing video of a violent video gayle here, but the california law addresses games far more violent than this, the kind we wouldn't dare show on television. >> this is about protecting kids. there is ample evidence that demonstrates these video games are harmful to our children. that's why we are here. >> they spent at least a quarter million dollars defending the laws. the opponents have to pay every time california loses.
6:21 am
that doesn't include the california fees and the legal fees that california has racked up in the process. >> you brought up an interesting point. that was why are you regulating just video games when you can have violent content in books and movies? >> absolutely. if it's okay in a poem to talk about a violent death, why is it not okay in a video game? that's a critical question. >> it gets back to the freedom of speech. >> exactly. >> in the meantime, san francisco giants we have been talking about. that's the big story besides the election. they are the world champions of major league baseball. a lot of fans are thinking about next year's roster. a lot of fans have been wanting to know what's going to happen with barry zito with three years left on his $126 million contract. the team general manager said zito will stay put. he told the l.a. times he is not going to trade zito. he was left off of the postseason roster.
6:22 am
>> you can expect a new deal for brian himself. the president said when things settle down, he will talk about next year. >> the playoff run turned into big business for the giants. the team got 4,000 additional new deposits for full season ticket plans next season. this year they had about 21,000 plans. they do not plan a dramatic increase for next year. >> brian wilson is booked for "the tonight show" tomorrow night. this morning we have the answer to the question that's on everyone's mind. will there no longer be a beard to fear? >> are you guys craze he? it's the world championship. >> i love him. i think he's hilarious. if you haven't seen brian, check him out as well. a lot of fun to watch. i can watch this over and over. the thing i love about baseball
6:23 am
is that all the grown men turn into little boys. i love it. >> i love his reaction. what? shave the beard? >> i think you guys should all start growing them. >> fair enough. if we start now, maybe by august or so? >> i told you guys, i have been growing my beard. >> i don't see it yet. >> shave this? no. we have the accident update for the cars that are involved in the earlier accident in union city. all off to the side of the road. the right hand shoulder and that's why traffic is moving. slow past union landing and targeted on the other side approaching whipple. that is the extent of the slowing. you are okay towards the dumbarton bridge and okay by the time you reach the san mateo bridge. a nice easy drive for the freeway, but the heat metering lights have been turned on, queueing the build up of traffic towards the area. traffic management watches the amount of traffic and gauge when
