gave possibly shaky test results too and is demanding a list of the recipients of nearly 900,000 test results that came out of the newark lab this year. >> it would be one thing if theranos was a company that was just trying to build their device and get it up to marketability. but they are not. they're a company that's already entered the testing field. they are already generating results. >> reporter: cms also wants to bar theranos from any hematology testing. andria borba, kpix 5. time now 4:39. a poor pup recovering this morning after possibly being thrown from a car. more on the search for whoever wanted to hurt martha, the pit bull. ,, ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

voters and 32% support cruz. ohio governor john kasich comes in last at 18%. trump said his administration is going to be pro-jobs, pro- economy, and pro-entrepreneur. he will need to amass the 1,237 delegates needed to secure the nomination. >> by the time we get to june 7, the date of our primary, it doesn't look like he is going to have the necessary votes to reach 1,237. and he may or may not have that number after he gets done in california. so this is very much a make it or break it for mr. trump. >> reporter: betty yu, kpix 5. >> and it could be a dramatic day in the democratic race for the white house. hillary clinton and bernie sanders will face off in a debate in new york city tonight just days before the critical new york primary. last night bernie sanders drew 27,000 people to manhattan's iconic washington square park one of the largest crowds yet of his campaign. he challenged rival hillary clinton on issues like expanding social security

was thrown from a car. no one claimed her yet. jeff said she didn't have an id tag or microchip but has a lot of offers for new homes. the shelter's facebook page, full of them. >> she is safe. she's happy. she's getting all the care she needs and we're going to take care of her. >> reporter: in petaluma, cate caugiran, kpix 5. >> martha's vet says she should be fully healed in the next couple of months and depending on the investigation, she should be available for adoption in just a few weeks. time now is 6:46. let's get a check of weather and traffic with brian. >> a few little sprinkles around. did you hit any rain coming in. a little bit. >> yeah. now heading south. that's pretty much all. this was not going to be a big rainmaker and, in fact, it was not. the showers now are focused on the east bay spreading across to the south bay as you will see on the kpix 5 hi-def doppler this morning. most of it moving into the great valley but if we pull in closer you can see that we have plenty of showers spread around from -- this is as of 3 a.m. but you can see the general trend is south and out of the
bay area but plenty of showers for you in the south bay this morning. it will be clearing up in the north bay in the next few hours. the numbers in san francisco are in the mid-50s for the most part. 54 at concord. 55 at oakland. and in santa rosa this morning 46 degrees. here's how it looks. low pressure now kicks inland then as it does it takes those showers with it. later in the day that post frontal activity could spread a few more pop-up showers later in the day. so it might look like it's clearing and later get more sprinkles. it won't be much. so unsettled today. as you can see on the futurecast, those showers move south and out and then later in the afternoon up in the north bay a few pop-up showers that's about it. by tomorrow morning things are looking okay with thursday dawning bright and beautiful. i mean friday. but today we have a few showers. we expect a few lingering showers, clearing warmer friday and we have a warm weekend ahead still with numbers in the
