from cbs 2 rrow on >> from cbs 2 news and fox28 news this is special coverage of vote 2016. >> we continue to track the latest developments in the race for president. >> voting is now over. there are a number of contest that remain too close to call. here's a look at the latest projections in the electoral college. 270 are required to win. the major headlines of the hour hillary clinton wins virginia and donald trump takes ohio and moments ago production show trump will also take north carolina. we are still watching florida. >> it's remarkable and bottom line for president unlike the
still too close to call. we will continue to monitor these results and bring you the updates throughout the night. >> although contest in iowa remain up in the air we are getting a better picture of the direction of national races going on as scott and karen told us. the political reporter kevin barry continues vote 2016 team coverage. >> we talked with the volatility that we're seeing in the markets because donald trump is doing well. he just picked up a battleground state talking about you are saying this is a time sound thing. we're going to out of the country with donald trump is going to do better. >> what we have seen is trump leading in the electoral count all night and that is an artifact of republicans continued strength in the southeast. north carolina was one that hillary clinton expected to win
that is the most remarkable result of the night. maybe even more so than ohio. >> coming into this we talked about that blue wall that hillary clinton had. she took what she had to take an not have to overextend, you are saying that blue wall is still intact. >> it's got some holes in it. it's not nearly looked at the beginning of the night. >> where getting a better look at the presidential race. we have 13% reporting. still a closely split hillary clinton has broken the 50% mark. a place like iowa was republican +3. this is 13% in but are we looking at a place that is not safely read but read
have to wait. >> historically and we don't know where these presents are coming from but historically this urban present has come in first in iowa and the rule presents have come in later. rule presents in iowa tend to be more republican. it's been a number of democrats over the number of years that have been leading with 13 or 26 or 39% of precincts reporting. i'm not ready credence in the numbers we have seen. >> how important are too close congressional races and i was first district and their district. the first district in cedar rapids which is heavily necrotic and third district which includes des moines which includes democratic. could that both attend in iowa on the presidential level because you may be driving more democratic voters?
is because they've gotten turn out in western iowa. if democrat turn in eastern iowa that might have a similar effect. a tight result in district 1 and that's a factor of what i was talking about earlier. >> something to be expected. this is district here david young taking a lead in that. that is al a what is the biggest surprise that you have seen so far? is a place like north carolina that we thought with the extended voting place i do with the more democratic voters? >> i think the biggest surprise nationally has been that states with increasing proportions of nonwhite citizens have not changed their usual column.
