ostern. tom: moderator and wmur political director josh mcelveen begins our team coverage tonight live from saint anselm college. josh: good evening to you guys. the two candidates came into the debate acutely aware of two different things. one, election night is only a way, -- week away, and roughly half the electorate are yet to make up their minds on who they will for for governor. find throughout these two and that was true tonight on the debate stage where they mixed it up pretty good. for a recap of tonight's debate, let's send it out to jean mackin. jean: sandwiched in between state issues the candidates kept coming back to experience. dissecting each other's resumes. colin van ostern and chris sununu debated which executive councilor has the best experience. >> his only job in the past decade is working for the sununu family.
hasn't been able to keep an eye on the bottom line or look out for people. >> we're the only resort on the entire east coast expanding pill millions of dollars of investment to grow our business. colin will say anything to avoid the fact that while he was running campaigns i was cleaning up hazard waste sites. jean: they tackled top state issues from the drug crisis to education costs, tax relief and if more northern pass transmission lines should be buried. >> there are some tweaks to this to bury the whole line that adds $500 million to the cost that would come directly to the people of new hampshire. it's essentially cancelling the project. >> the discernment he says he shows when it comes to solar and renewable energy projects just doesn't exist when it comes to something funded by huge multibillion dollar corporations through our state. jean: on transportation improvements, they disagree up and down the road on expanding commuter rail. >> right now we have real needs in our state. colin wants to pander to the train fanatics. i want to makes ure the people
like the manchester chamber of commerce. business leaders who want to see see their investments growth. those are important investments we need to make. jean: and there was one final flurry over the business background that would best fill the corner office. >> opposing medicaid expansion, opposing planned parenthood funding, opposing having a state minimum wage. >> look. we've created jobs at waterville. >> this a great example of not having any business experience and background. he's taking a single data point that he doesn't understand. josh: gentlemen. i wish i didn't have a clock. jean: but indeed, josh did have a clock. when asked if they have future plans to seek higher office outside of the governors seat
josh i imagine one the more : difficult things to do is to step off the debate stage and then go into a spin room and and and grade their own performance. that's what both of them did. they each gave themselves high marks. >> i thought the whole debate was distilled into the final two answers. for me this campaign is about doing what's right by the people of new hampshire, and putting politics aside, and i was glad to share some of the stories of along the way on issues that are big differences between me and chris sununu, planned parenthood funding, solar and renewable energy projects, medicaid expansion. you know these are policies but they also impact people's lives. >> when we have a debate, it's all about being giving straight answers every single time. every time they asked my opponent a question, he shucked it, and moved to the left and moved to the right and wouldn't answer anything straightforward. debates are a chance about, a chance for people to actually engage and understand what we are about, what the issues are about.
every turn so i think we did very well. josh: i'm joined by my colleague who was observing this debate. you were able to sit back and soak it in. what was your take on it? >> we have two rising stars in their separate parties who really needed to break to some of the noise of the presidential race and the senate race. it's such an important issue, governor of new hampshire. i think they both got their messages out. they did separate themselves on issues. there was a lot of talk about the basic issues facing the state. josh: but there was a difference of style as well. it really does boil down to the voters who are undecided. john: right. chris sununu was maybe a little
cerebral, i'm not going to make any judgments on that. they just came off with different styles and that is what reflects their personalities. josh: the ultimate great will come from the voters, seven days from tonight. tomorrow night of biggie republican kelly ayotte will be on stage with her democratic challenger, maggie hassan. it might add to the pressure of another high-stakes debate, this one just six days from election day. that will wrap up our coverage from the college of saint anselm college. tom: our commitment 2016 coverage never stops on wmur.com and on our mobile app. go to our elections section to watch extended clips from
white house, hillary clinton's former rival bernie sanders says new hampshire voters play a critical role in the presidential race. >> the future of this country may rest on your 4 electoral votes for president. shelley: the vermont senator visited plymouth state university and dartmouth college campaigning alongside governor hassan. he urged the crowd to make their vote count and says theirs a -- there is a stark difference between clinton and trump on >> the differences between secretary clinton and mr trump are day and night on every major issue facing this country sec -- secretary clinton's positions are far far better for the working class and middle class of this country. shelley: sanders will be on the campaign trail for clinton all week. with events from coast to coast. tom: republican nominee donald trump says a clinton victory will destroy american health care forever.
expected to win. pennsylvania and wisconsin. in eau claire, he attended a small business roundtable with wisconsin governor scott walker and former college basketball coach bobby knight. >> the way i phrased it was that since george washington this is the first time we've need someone like a donald trump. and we need it today. and i'm not impressed easily. tom: tomorrow, trump has 3 campaign stops planned across florida. neck and neck in the latest polls. taking a new approach to fighting the state's drug epidemic. shelley: how this local hospital is coming to the aid of pregnant women battling addiction. that's next on news9. >> honoring volunteers from across the state. coming up, we'll introduce you to some who are being recognized for their service to their communities.
when all three of these guys show up, they come up with some crazy ideas. sometimes, i just have to say, "no way." to cutting social security. she stood up to both parties to protect our benefits. annie's working to make sure we have a secure retirement. so i can worry about these guys instead. thanks, annie.
robert kearney: i fought for my country in kosovo and iraq, and i've been a republican all
my life. but i'm the father of three girls. i can't stand hearing donald trump call women pigs, dogs, and bimbos...and i sure don't want my daughters hearing it. i want my girls to grow up proud and strong, in a nation where they're valued and respected. donald trump's america is not the country i i'm hillary clinton and i approve this message. shelley: now to the battle against isis. and for the first time in two years, iraqi forces are on the outskirts of the city of mosul. troops have taken control of the islamic state's television building. and they are preparing for door-to-door combat in the inner
the city is completely retaken. a statewide warning is going out tonight in new hampshire's drug crisis. tom: health care providers are now on the lookout after multiple cases of a potentially deadly strep infection. four men have been found with strep a in the last 10 days. all are drug users. and are in southern and central new hampshire. now, the state wants to know how they became infected. >> maybe they have had close contact with one another, but we are also of course concerned whether the drugs themselves were contaminated at some point. tom: this form of strep a can be deadly if someone doesn't go to the hospital for treatment. and health experts say heroin users are often less likely to seek medical help. shelley: pregnant women fighting with substance abuse will soon have a new resource. the program at the pregnancy care center at catholic medical center launches next year. it will provide treatment and recovery services for mom through delivery. and care for the child.

before it cools back to the average as we go into friday and a good part of the upcoming weekend. scattered shower or two of north through the morning commute tomorrow, dry in central and southern new hampshire and partial sun as early as midmorning. we jump to the one rain chance this week on thursday, anywhere during the afternoon and evening a quarte a rain. we'll have to see what happens in terms of the drought update but there's a high likelihood that the extreme drought may be squashed a little more to the south and east. that would be good news. then in terms wendy and breezy and much cooler for friday. sunshine and clouds mixed for the weekend. there's a reminder to fall back standard time when we gain an

priorities usa action is responsible for the content of this advertising. when you're raised by a single mom, you learn how important
it is to live within your means. i'm colin van ostern, and i took that lesson to my work in business, and it's how i'll stand up for you as governor. by cutting inefficient spending and using innovation to save tax dollars, we'll make new investments without a sales or income tax. to create clean energy jobs, and lower college costs and cut student debt. as governor, i'll stand up for you. what's kelly ayotte costing you? you're paying more for prescription medicines. kelly ayotte blocked lower cost generic drugs. you're paying high interest rates on college loans. ayotte voted against letting you refinance at lower rates. and you're paying higher bank fees while ayotte voted for special breaks to wall street executives.
that's costing you. she's not working for new hampshire. shelley: one father made sure his daughter had a halloween to remember. tom: the
pair were flying from boston to san francisco last night. in a note, the father told passengers that his 3-year-old daughter was disappointed that she would miss out on trick or tr so he handed candy out to people on the flight so she could go up the aisle and trick or treat. shelley: that is a really thoughtful dad. very nice. mike: we are wrong into the 60's tomorrow, it's going to feel very nice. there could be an early morning shower. we could push the upper 60's, then showers move in on thursday
the weeken hillary clinton: far too
many families today don't earn what they need and don't have the opportunities they deserve. i believe families deserve quality education for their kids, childcare they can trust and afford, equal pay for women, and jobs they can really live on. people ask me what will be different if i'm president? well kids and families have been the passion of my life and they will be the heart of my presidency. i'm hillary clinton and i approve this message. imagine if hillary clinton wins the white house... then what? liberal carol shea-porter? she'll be a rubber stamp for clinton's agenda. progressive shawn o'connor? he'll be a rubber stamp, too. and you know their agenda: higher taxes. more government spending. and a weaker national defense. only frank guinta will put new hampshire first. that's the key difference in this race. frank guinta. he's on our side. i'm frank guinta
kate: my mom and i love shooting hoops. but you know what - she could still learn a few
things from me - just like i've learned a lot from her. mom helps with homework... she helped dad start his business... and she even fought to put bad guys in jail. now, mom helps make laws that help people - especially when they need it most. i'm really proud of her. and she's taught me that with hard work - i can do... anything. kelly: i'm kelly ayotte, kate: and i'm kate. kelly & kate: and we approved joanne: she's not fooling me. britt: kelly ayotte sides with the special interests. vivian: now, she's even playing politic games with medicare. vo: kelly ayotte voted to cut medicare and cost seniors up to $1,700 more for prescriptions... while protecting tax breaks for the wall street banks and big oil companies that fund her campaign. fred: kelly ayotte sold us out. britt: with kelly ayotte, it's all politics. joanne: she's not looking out for new hampshire anymore. vo: senate majority pac is responsible
maggie hassan, and new hampshire has a very clear choice: do we keep going with a senator who repeatedly votes with the corporate special interests... or a new senator who sides with the people of new hampshire? my focus has always been on creating opportunity for working families: making college and job training more affordable. lowering prescription drug costs. and always protecting a woman's right to make her own health care decisions. these are my priorities, why i approve this message...
