Reporter: President obama returns to the state that helped him get here. The president won the granite state in 2008 and the polls showed him tied with mitt romney. The theme was economic security for the middle class. They believe the best way forward is to go back to the old top-down economic has it got us here in the first place. Reporter: Obama cited independent studies showing romney and ryan would raise taxes on the middle class. Not to reduce the deficit or grow jobs but to give another tax cuts on folks like him. Reporter: Not everyone was happy to see the spread. Romney supporters clustered near the high school saying the president hasn't done enough to fix the economy. I don't like what obama's for right now. Reporter: One issue those agree on is the campaigns should have to pay for their trips to these towns. Afterall, all the extra security can cost a lot.

Learn more Emily: A salmonella outbreak has spread to two states. Jim: Health officials are closing a source. They think it's cantaloupes from a farm in indiana. Reporter: Authorities are zeroing in on an indiana farm as the source of a deadly outbreak of salmonella. The unnamed farm has withdrawn it's product and will not ship cantaloupes the rest of the season. The cdc is warning consumers to discard cantaloupes from southwest indiana and wal-mart will voluntarily pull all cantaloupes from that region from store shelves. Already two people have died and 140 more are sick. The outbreak began in july and spread to 20 states with cases popping up from coast to coast. This outbreak comes almost a year after cantaloupe from colorado tainted with listeria killed 30 people in eleven states. One of the deadliest food-born outbreaks. It's an outbreak that shouldn't happen. Jim: The cdc says washing the fruit isn't enough to look at the label. If it was grown outside of southwest indiana it's okay but if it was seal it in a plastic bag and throw it away but when end doubt always throw it out. Emily: So 9:12 you probably have your cup of coffee wondering whether you will head out. Mike: There are showers offshore that will thin out in the next hour and a half. Emily: There's a window. Mike: A window of opportunity but on radar nothing is being picked up. It's all cloud cover. It's so thin and so close to the surface it's hard to pick up. We've warmed up nicely. This is the thin overcast we're talking about. The cloud cover tried to work its way to 128 and falls apart and on the western part you're seeing thin clouds work in and temperatures to the west were CHILLY AND NOW UP TO THE 50s AND Around the cape we're seeing cloud cover and temperatures in THE 70s. There's a deck trying to work in and notice the hole and thin clouds from the west. We'll call today fading sunshine but the cloud cover and the thin stuff you'll see the sunshine through it and have holes in it all the time. We can still call it a mostly sunny to partly sunny day and thin clouds from the west. The main event is out to the west. That's where the rain is. That's why we don't have to worry about showers. The showers that develop will probably develop tomorrow afternoon over nantucket and we'll have to wait until tomorrow night before showers move across our area. The rain is long gone. This is what's happening tomorrow. A low pressure system south of the city and south of nantucket. What it will do is try to throw rain northward. I'm not looking for a big heavy rain just scattered showers and tuesday we'll get behind it and skies will clear at nicely across the area. As we look at the futurecast, tomorrow morning 10:00 a.M. Partly cloudy and there's some rain you saw south of nantucket and later in the afternoon you see showers developing total west. So our forecast then for the rest of day, morning clouds will fade-away and go to partly sunny thin overcast skies. 74 to 80 degrees forhe high. Tonight under partly cloudy skies cool and lingers showers before it clears off midweek and TEMPERATURES IN THE 80s. Snag feels more like summer. Jim and emily.
