[ wink! ] [ wink! ] ♪ >> congressional race in california's 11th district is so close less than 200 votes
separate the candidates, jerry mcnerney is trying to hold on to his seat. he is 121 votes ahead of the republican candidate of david harmer. he talked about the race from stockton last night. >> this election is fundamentally about two things. the first is that people want to stop the speg. they sigh an explosion of federal spending in washington and they are very concerned about it. they understand that there is no free money. that we're piling debt onto our kids. >> if he wins, he will be the only republican representative in the bay area. >> across the nation, voters sent a message that they are ready for a change in congress. gop is backing control of the house of representatives. >> and that means nancy pelosi is out as speaker of the house and congressman john bain ser the incoming speaker. he called bainer to congratulate him on his win and to talk about working together in the future. during his victory speech he
echoed themes of getting americans back to work and rolling back the landmark health care reform bill. the results of the election end pelosi's reign as the first female speak are of the house. pelosi has no plans to let the country go back to the failed policies of the past and out to continue to fight for the middle-class. >> the u.s. senate will remain under democratic control but with a smaller majority. most closely watched race was nevada where harry reid, had sharron angle in a brutal race there. >> here is notable republican gains, dan coats victory, rand paul coasted to a victory in kentucky. in ohio, republican rob portman has won the fifth senate seat. >> republican candidates one a
senate race in new hampshire and marco rubio won in florida. >> president obama has called supporters to discuss midterm election results. we will carry that live this morning at 10:00 a.m. >> so for a look at the result all mean. we're going by bruce cane. >> so republicans take the house and democrats retain the senate. this must mean gridlock on capitol hill? >> a lot depends on what president obama decides to do. if he decides he is going to continue to pursue a democratic agenda, then we're talking gridlock because mr. boehner has made it clear they are going to resist most of the major initiatives that the democrats would put forward. if president obama takes a page out of president clinton's play book and decide to use
triangulation, some of the items that republicans like and put them out there then we could have some progress during the two years. it won't be anything like the scope of the measures we saw in the first two years. >> was it anger or need for a change or all the above. >> i think you have to say all the above. people will have their pet theories, it's all about the unemployment and lack of economic recovery. there will be other people it's all about the mistake that has obama made in pushing an agenda that is too aggressive and the reality is all these things came together. if the economy was doing pretty well, most likely the democrats would have -- because they had extraordinary gains in 2006 and 2008 they were bound to lose some of those seats. there is no question that the bad economy made all the problems seem worse. >> very quickly, one question,
you mentioned it's typical that a midterm election for the party in power to lose some seats in congress. how does this compare to past mid terms? >> unfortunately for the democrats this is historic loss. you have to go back to the 3 30s before you find something as big as this. we're back to the old normal. new normal was large democratic majority but most of the times, we had divided government. after 200of, bush had divided government. so we're back to the old normal. >> and then california, the attorney general's race too close to be called right now. for the most part, the office is heavily democratic and california has some of the same problems the nation has. our jobless rate, so what happened? >> i think we're back to capital of the opposition.
everybody gave that seat up as lost. it looks like there is a good chance that he will end up winning. this state stayed blue while the rest of the country was going red. we've been in that position and california is back to where it was in the early 2000. >> we'll see in about half an hour how do you spend $142 million on a governor's race and lose. in the meantime, we want to turn things over to mike. >> there is some pressure and you want have good weather for the parade. you scared me there. i love my job.
we're looking from downtown, it is clear this morning. let's check out temperatures if we can. you'll see that they are running in the upper 40s around half moon bay and santa rosa. we still have sea in san francisco and 52 in los gatos and everyone around the low to mid 50s. still the warmest and coolest weather, salinas a always 60. three things i want you to know about, the sunshine. near record warmth this afternoon. that will stop on friday as the system draws near. let's talk about the 24-hour temperature change and also the asterisk, that is where i think we could set record high temperatures today. two degrees warmer in concord. oakland, four and about 6 in fremont. look at all the other stars or
asterisks around san rafael and napa. potential record highs and fremont, low to mid-80s. mid to upper 80s into san francisco and richmond at clearlake. plenty of sunshine around monterey bay and you also will be seeing record threatening, monterey, 79. watsonville in the mid-80s with sunshine today. unfortunately the beaches are going to be rough with high surf advisory. strong rip currents they bring with them until 3:00. tonight clear once again and upper 40s around cloverdale, santa rosa, napa and fairfield, rest of us in low to mid-50s. seven-day forecast, just about as warm tomorrow. so we'll see if we threaten any records tomorrow. dramatic changes in temperature comes with increase in clouds, four to ten degrees cooler.

spot. >> and the orange confetti is flying around and cheering is loud. some of the fans came in as early as 9:30 last night and camping out. i've spoken with people that driven from friends and family but as far away as the central valley. >> we were planning for weeks. we knew the outcome was going to happen. it's a family event. we're all pretty excited. >> it's awesome to be out here this morning. i was telling him, i got to be here. i'm so glad i'm here. >> when the parade arrives at city hall when is orange and lit up. the adoring fans will get to see

margin, that is more like a 13-point margin. whitman has spent $142 million of her own personal fortune to run. >> jerry brown was first elected back in 1974. he served two terms back then. this will be third term and it's allowed because the allow on term limits did not passion until after he left office. mark matthews spoke one on one. >> they have given me a vote of trust and confidence i have to do my darndest to live up to it. >> couple first steps will be to work on the state budget and get a list of jobs that need to be filled. as for his opponent, meg whitman
conceded late last night. >> tonight has turned out quite as we had hoped. we came up a little short, but certainly not for a lack of hard work, determination and a clear vision for making our state better. >> whitman called brown last night to wish him well. she says it's no time for californians to unite in turning the state around. there is no word on what she plans to do next. the former ebay ceo spent a record of $142 million of her personal fortune on the campaign. >> it appears that california voters have rejected proposition 19. that was the initiative to legalize marijuana for recreational use in california. it got a lot of national attention when polls showed it had a shot passing, but in the end 54% of california voters
said no to prop 19. it led in 58 counties and all of them were in northern california. >> john peratta hold the lead for mayor of oakland. he leads with 35% of the votes. gene kwan and rebecca cap land received 24% and 21%. oakland is big enough to matter, small enough to manage. this city can be what it should be. >> he is confident he'll be elected and much more visible as mayor than his predecessor. first order of business is to help restore 63 officers that were laid off. >> oakland voters decided two
measures, they rejected measure "x", $360 parcel tax, but they did pass measure bb by more than two-thirds of the majority needed. that will restore 63 police officers that were laid off. >> it will mean grassroots police officers will be back on the street. so they can deal with the lower level problems. >> measure bb restores $20 million in funding for the department's problem solving officers which is a supplement to the city's regular police patrols. >> moving to san francisco, voters approved a measure changing the way muni operators will get paid. they in l negotiate contracts through a union with the city the currently wages are set automatically by a formula in the city chart they're promises them at least the second highest pay in the nation. meanwhile, the controversial sidewalk sit-lie law appears have to pass had by a narrow
margin. measure "l" prohibits anybody from sitting or lying on sidewalks from 7:00 in the morning until 11:00 at night. >> is a big parade going through san francisco today, i don't think they'll be enforcing that one when people will be sitting on the sidewalk today. >> they will be jumping up and down and giants fever, how about the temperatures? >> they will be running high. near record high temperatures. good morning to you. maybe everybody can come together and enjoy a parade even if you are on the other side of the aisle or bay. 70 degrees at 11:00. as the praird beginning at washington and montgomery and 75 degrees by the time the parade ends at civic center plaza. as far as our temperatures, let's break it down this morning still in the 50s and possible reply around 50 in san francisco at 8:00. notice sunny start and that will be theme throughout the forecast. 68 in san rafael and everybody
else in the low to mid-70s. picnic weather, definitely and then as we head into the afternoon hours, sunshine will dominate and mid to upper 70s, even an 80 around morgan hill. seven-day forecast, near record highs, stick around for tomorrow. cold front draws near, brings the sea breeze back and temperatures four to ten degrees cooler friday, increasing clouds friday evening through early saturday morning. saturday afternoon should be dry and another more widespread chance of a shower on sunday. good morning. >> bay bridge toll plaza, back-up to the 880 overcrossing and slow to the metering lights. if you are heading across the san mateo bridge, looking good westbound and eastbound but earlier in the eastbound direction, there was a little bit on 880 because of an earlier crash. no major problems out of north bay and looking good.
fairly normal around the bay area but a lot of folks heading to the giants victory parade. 250,000 folks expected. consider mass transit, parking will be a mess. cross streets will be closed for the parade route. there will be extra larkspur ferries and bart will be running longer trains and consider caltrain from the indispensable, so for no delays. just the normal slow and go out of antioch. a serious inconsistency as voters consider a critical water project in marin. >> also accomplishment expert weighs in on change in house of representatives. >> and live report from the new york stock exchange straight ahead and we'll tell you a few more minutes.
our al national pastim-- saving money. and like baseball people love their stats. i started bringing my lunch to work. 50 bucks a week in my pocket here's a good one state farm insures 40 million drivers. more than geico and progressive combined. i save because i'm accident-free. of course, with so many ways to save, including discounts of up to 40%, having thamany customers shouldn't be a surprise. so ask a neighbor about state farm. then call an agent at 1-800-state-farm, or go online. happy hump day to you. look at the sunshine, warmest weather, l.a. and palm springs, mid 90s. 71 in big sur, 57 in tahoe.
and about 88 in yosemite and san diego >> it now appears that gavin newsom will be mog to the state capitol. he is way ahead of his challenger in the race for lieutenant governor. he has 50% of the votes to 39%. he plans to transform the office to make it more relevant. >> in the east bay, richmond's mayor has one a second term in office. she fought off two city hall challengers both her rivals criticized her for not embracing companies like chevron. she prefers to diversify richmond's economy and welcomes the growing green technology sector. >> and big day in wall street, not just because of the
elections. >> jane king is live with more on the money scope report. >> sorry you couldn't be here for the parade for the giants? >> yeah, yeah. that was not even competitive, right? they just swept it. it's interesting to watch the markets, we are seeing very little reaction to the election. we have a big fed meeting we expect them to announce plans to bolster the economy that could be in the trillions, or husband of billions. extra cash for the economy will keep interest rates low. so likely, sectors, see some of the republican policies pro business. reaction this morning is mixed.

challenger david harmer who was backed by the tea party and only republican bay area representative if he wins this race. >> and republicans have retaken the house. democrats still have the white house in congress. >> and to help us interpret the results, in the race for governor, meg whitman spent so much money, $140 million out of her own pocket and still not win. how does that happen? >> it happens more than you would think. money doesn't buy offices and people tend to resent it. this was a really large amount of money. i think the problem for somebody like meg whitman, she was stepping on her own message. her message was that we needed to be frugal yet she was spending $140 million on her campaign but jerry brown ran his campaign a really frugal way.
i think that was part of problem. >> despite the problems, and need for change that we saw across the nation in brown's second time around? >> i think jerry brown has a chance to create a legacy for himself. remember that his father is perhaps regarded as most successful governor that california has ever had. jerry finished his last term of office as governor on a down note. he had to piv on the prop 13 and he had the fruit fly incident that was left a sour taste. he finished on a sour note and he has a chance to build a legacy. if he can confront these problems and make structural changes and pass budgets on time and get republicans and democrats to talk among themselves more, i think he will have a positive legacy. i think that is what he is
looking for at the age of 72. >> when you talk about the republican majority in congress, we're talking about the tea party backed candidates. is it fair to think they are going to act like the rest of the republican caucus. >> i think they are going to put a lot of pressure. they are going to question some of the practices that were prevalent when the republicans were last in power. for example, earmarks, i think very early on in boehner's tenure there lab vote bloo to continue it. that was important component the way the republicans were operating in the 90s. we'll see possibly a challenge to boehner and we may see that it creates more resistance to some of obama's policies. again, there are now people who are elected in democratic seats. they will be saying, wait a
minute i have to win. >> always good to see you. >> we love the insight. thank you very much. >> what is the weather going to be for the parade? >> i don't think it could be better. >> you should run? >> i should. you endorsed me twice this morning. i appreciate that. this morning, we're looking down from mount tamalpais, and we have clear conditions. we have a lot of talk about. 50 in fremont and 48 in santa rosa and everybody else in the low to mid-50s. monterey bay clear, low to mid-50s. 47 in gilroy to 50 in salinas. some of the things, near record high temperatures, cooler friday and friday will still bring us a
chance of wet weather but a secondary storm behind it on sunday. for to the, look at these temperatures, above average, redwood city, concord santa rosa 13. 15 degrees warmer than average in oakland and san jose. look for a star next to your city, possible record high, 83 degrees down in san jose. upper 70s to low 80s on the peninsula. no records here. low to mid-70s down around the coast. through the north bay valleys we have san rafael, santa rosa and napa, low to mid-80s and record highs. identically and hayward, 80. cooler in berkeley, upper 70s. county cord possible record high there. same thing for the monterey bay and inland, 87 with salinas. slightly cooler, 79 in monterey could also be a record. going to the beaches? tomorrow may be a better idea.
we have a surf advisory for breaking waves and strong rip currents until 3:00. seven-day forecast, almost as warm tomorrow, we may threaten a few more records, about 4 to 10 degrees friday and cooler through next week. frances, new accidents? >> westbound 237, approaching mccarthy an early injury crash that was report, non-injury crash but you will find slowing from 880. also if you are headed to the giants' victory parade with a lot of folks going there, you may want to consider mass transit. streets will be gridlocked. bart will be running longer trains and larkspur ferries, we're hearing unofficially about the vallejo ferry parking lot is almost full. and toll plaza is backed up to
