pulling strings behind the scenes. >> clinton bragged about her great relationship with the financial industry, that is where she gets all the money. >> it is pretty much the wild west out there when it comes to the outside spending. >> she is taking us through the murky world of outside spending by dark money groups and super packs that often shield donors identities. >> for clinton when you factor in the super pack donors have been donald -- james simons who is with the hedge fund, and george who everyone has heard of. the last time we looked at the numbers there were no hedge fund billionaires supporting trump. now that he is the last man standing in the republican party, that has changed. >> right. >> um -- a lot of the hedge fund billionaires have not come aboard with trump but robert is
9:29 pm
he used to support cruz. he supported ted cruz till he hedge fund that james simons have been robert merser who is actually with the same hedge fund that james is with. jeff palmer is a real estate developer in california who many people haven't heard of. >> add it all up and clinton has far and away more big donor support. $20 million from hedge $14 million from renaissance technology jim simons. more than $12 million and more than $10 million each from them. trump has only three donors in that category. [ indiscernible ]
9:30 pm
from the coveted small donor. novak: she has raised about 19-percent of her funds from small donors, a greater amount of money but a smaller share of her funds from donald trump. um, so if you take out the 54 million dollars that donald trump has given to his own campaign, um his share of small donors uh funding is about 43-percent, which is pretty good. i'm sharyl attkisson for full measure. how much are the candidates spending to get elected? as calculated by the center for responsive politics, the campaigns together were closing in on $2 ?billion dollars on october 31st. that's significantly more than what obama and romney spent by the same time 2012: about $1.7 ?billion. next on the fox 28 news at nine -- --college basketball is back - highlights from iowa city and ames - next on fox 28 sports...

[ indiscernible ] so what went wrong? pretty much everything. the most telling stat of the game, rushing yards. the lions racked up 359 yards on the ground. the hawks ran for just 30. penn state was 7-14 on third down. they six tacklings and four sacks. in other words it was complete domination. times and it's tough - it's gonna hurt - it's never fun going somewhere and losing like this - so it's gonna sting - but i'll have it flushed in like three minutes - and i'm ready to go next week - the packers and colts last played each other in 20-12 -

9:42 pm
northwesterly flow to develop and finally some cold air can make it into the midwest. around november 17 or 18 i am expecting temperatures to actually go below normal here in eastern iowa and the overall pattern starts to look a lot more like it should look at this time of the season. here is our extended forecast in detail for the next several days. we should have another outstanding november day. we have a front that comes through on tuesday. that will keep the temperare quite a bit cooler. there will also be gusty winds out of the northwest. looks like our temperatures will stay in the 50s then on wednesday. then we get back up to 63 thursday. another front comes through on friday drops temperatures down there for veterans day. saturday morning we are at the freezing mark. next saturday looks sunny and dry but kind of cool at 52. then it is just beyond the 7 day period when the colder air makes a return to the midwest. we should easily see the coldest

9:45 pm
9:46 pm
9:47 pm
welcome back to fox 28 sports. lou montgomery is in with us to break down all the college football action. let's start with the hawkeyes. disappointing loss yesterday. what kind of stood out to you? >> what i saw saturday was a team that did not come out and want to be great. this team really struggled offensively. then offensively they just couldn't get anything going in surprising for iowa. that has been our bread and butter all yearlong. teams have started to figure out if they can stop iowa's running attack and force him to throw, they have a great opportunity to win and penn state executed that to the t on saturday. >> the most surprising stat you touched on was the iowa running game. penn state rushed for over 300 yards. you don't see that from on a away team. how much of a red flag is that?
9:48 pm
iowa. if you can't run the football then there is no i denty to -- identity to this program. they will have to get more creativity in their offense. you a big game coming up against michigan where iowa will be tested at all levels. they will have to play mistake free football against michigan. more importantly they will have to run the football and c.j. will have t down the field. >> yeah. like you said the number two team in the country coming in to kinnick next week. can iowa string four quarters together? >> they will have to because this is a -- one of those games where -- it is on national tv. it is a night game. i fully anticipate the entire stadium will be packed because folks want to see the number two team in the nation play.
9:49 pm
that has been iowa's achilles heel this entire last couple of years. can they win the big one? this is their opportunity to really try to get it done. >> yeah. iowa state another loss against oklahoma but -- there were again some bright spots for the cyclones. what did you see in this game? do you think they could get a win next week? >> they have had just a brutal schedule. what i love about iowa state is these guys are playing with with compassion. these guys are getting better and better every game. they are playing some tough teams and they are playing tough teams close. this is an exciting team to watch when you watch iowa state. they toss the ball around the field, they are not afraid to -- move players in and out of the quarterback spot. they can run and throw. the problem with iowa state is they can't put together four quarters. this team will get better. i think they get a big opportunity against kansas on saturday. >> yeah.
9:50 pm
job. let's go to cedar rapids. u and i really took care of business yesterday. they did it with a third string quarterback. >> they came out and absolutely dominated this football. they really started off with a key interception by neil. once that happened, u and i just continued to roll. like you say, we talked about how on terms of him being a third string quarterback came in and did a nice job of tossing the rock around the field. >> yeah. u and i goes next week. they need to win out if they want to make the playoffs. thanks so much for joining us. back to you kelly >> next, terry swells gives you a last look at your weather first forecast and how to prepare for the weather tomorrow. but first check out this story from our digital partners at a lot shorter because what happens after two years is people aren't even listening to the issues anymore.(sot)"it

[music playing] the campaigns, it's great for it becomes more about entertainment. it is not good for anyone. it is good for the media news outlets. it is good for the people running the campaigns. it not good for the people actually voting. we need to come away from election process feeling good having participated in it. [music playing] ameri what i want to say is there is many things that need to be changed. people complain on the our government not doing anything.
9:52 pm
