7:15 am
spending millions, they are going to show up to the polls. they are probably leaning against the president, but they are not happy about it. >> the republicans need to take six seats to take control of the senate. where do you see the most competitive spots? >> three states that are my desert island races. if you told me the results of iowa, colorado, and kansas, i'd have a good idea who would control the senate. republicans start with three in the bag already. so among those three, if one party wins two of those three races, they are going to control the senate and right now i think all three of them are within two points. >> let's talk ebola for a second. sort of emerged as an issue. the people are upset how the federal government handled this. a couple of states, new jersey and maine. how big of an issue you think ebola is going to be? >> it's interesting in traveling the country and the states i was in, whether it was the midwest or the south, ebola wasn't a
7:16 am
huge issue in the senate races, for these voters but in these states illinois, georgia, you brought up maine, there are very highly contested gubernatorial races and that's where ebola has been an issue because you have major airports there, or of course the one nurse that is in maine. and so it could play but voters aren't holding one party against the other on this. so, while it's an issue, i don't know if it sways an undecided voter. >> chuck, hopping on that bus and coming home now? is it over? >> of course. it's sort of over. i'm going to be back in louisiana in december, you guys got crazy rules down here. >> that's very true. for a wrap of the races catch "meet the press" this sunday. and nbc will have special live coverage of the results roll in tuesday night at 10:00, 9:00 central time. >> let's turn on to sports. nba superstar lebron james probably could win an election

about looking to the future. >> we have one bad moment and it just overshadowed the great times together. >> take my talent to south beach. >> reporter: winning two championships there, over the summer the cavaliers owner who called james' departure bufferried the hatchet. lebron re-signed. just like that, all was forgiven. a giant lebron james banner that was torn down in 2010 was replaced now with a new one. jerseys that were torched now replaced, and seen all over town, as fans prepare for a new age of lebron. >> amazing to have him back. he means the world to us. >> we all hated him like six months ago. >> reporter: that's all in the past as seen in a new nike ad where the city rallies around

7:31 am
>> we're still recovering. >> crazy. crazy. >> let's first get a look at what's making headline this is morning. accused cop killer eric frein is being arraigned this morning. he was taken into custody near an abandoned airplane hangar last night after a nearly seven-week manhunt. crews are working to recover the victims of a tragic plane accident in kansas. a small plane lost power and slammed into a building at an airport in wichita, killing the pilot and at least three people inside. the national guard is now being deployed to an historic village in hawaii to help deal with that slow-moving lava flow. 83 troops will provide security and man roadblocks as the natural disaster advances. meanwhile we'll be talking with nik wallenda, as the dare devil is preparing for this weekend's risky tightrope walk high above the windy city of chicago. did we mention he will do part of the walk blindfolded? >> you and willie will be there. >> we'll be more nervous than he is. he looks pretty calm.
7:32 am
let's start this half hour of the video we showed you this week. a woman's encounter while walking through new york city is provoking strong reaction. this morning, the women behind it are speaking out. tamron? >> yes, hoda, when does a compliment turn into a catcall? that's one of the many questions about that video now being debated across social media. when the video of a hidden camera experiment capturing the sights and sounds of a woman's experience walking the streets of new york city is posted online, it became a social media phenomenon, with more than 20 million views since it debuted tuesday. the group behind the video wants to raise awareness of street harassment. >> my dream of all dreams is that street harassers watch this en mass and think, god, i had no idea the impact this had on women as they walk down the street. >> reporter: it did not provoke that reaction for some. >> i do not see harassment there, none, zero. >> we think about these things differently. >> reporter: when actress shoshanna roberts heard about the casting call, she jumped at
7:33 am
the chance to show what a typical day is like for her. >> i'm telling my story so someone can understand and walk in my shoes for two minutes. >> reporter: she says she received a lot of positive feedback from the video, she has also received threats of rape and violence, some so extreme, she's taking them to the police. a recent report by an advocacy group found more than half of all women have experienced verbal harassment on the street. and two-thirds of the harassed women were concerned it would escalate into something worse. >> it can make them fearful. they never know what the intention is behind men who may be saying things to them. are they going to escalate their attention, grab them, assault them? everybody has had a story that's happened to them or someone they know. wives, sisters, nieces, your aunts, your daughters. >> so, another criticism of the
7:34 am
video concerns the ethnicity of the harassers shown in the clips, with some calling all of the white people saying they were all edited out. she walked in neighborhoods all over manhattan and experienced 100 instances of harassment but only the most egregious ones. and the videographer said he had some audio problems, so a lot of men were not heard that he would have used and many of those, he said, were white. >> do you believe there's a thin line or broad line between a compliment and catcall? >> i think it's tonal. >> i think it's how you feel. when someone says, hey, pretty, i say hi. i don't get defensive but it's -- >> depends on tone. if they're leering, following you. >> that's scary. >> men were following her. >> thanks, tamron. let's get a check of the weather from mr. roker. >> announcer: "today's" sunday night football weather is

8:08 am
don't stop taking eliquis unless your doctor tells you to, as stopping increases your risk of having a stroke. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer than usual for any bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. those three important reasons are why eliquis is a better find for me. ask your doctor today if eliquis is right for you. ♪ [coughing] dave, i'm sorry to interrupt... i gotta take a sick day tomorrow. dads don't take sick days,
