races. we are in team headquarters in several counties. we begin with a recall election that is get sog much attention. the effort to unseat district attorney chesa boudin. you can see the result. boudin is out. >> the bay area in the city with boudin tonight, what is the mood there? >> reporter: you know, the party organized never got off of the ground. nbc news called this race within an hour as san francisco polls closed around 9:00 p.m. tonight is when nbc news called it. supporters here disappointed. they had hoped that boudin, the former public defender turned chief prosecutor would survive this recall election. 18 months in office dominated by the pan demic and widespread property
1:40 am
crimes including retail break ins and assaults on several members of the aaip community. many say that he declined to pursue hate crimes. several prosecutors became his loudest critics and complained the way boudin, a reformer, would handle prosecutions often opting for what they described as plea deals. >> people are angry. they are frustrated. i want to be very clear about what happened tonight. the right wing billionaires out spent us 3-1. they exploited a environment that people are appropriately upset and created a dynamic where we were shadow boxing. >> reporter: now, boudin
1:41 am
did not answer questions from reporters while he was here including if he plans to run for office again. now, his removal means that now mayor breed is going to be appointing somen to the district attorney's office for the second time in her tenure. he is going to replace the predecessor when he moves to los angeles. reporting live in san francisco bay area news. >> thank you very much. as you might expect after a browsing recall campaign a wild celebration erupted at the yes on h watch party. they learned voters recalled the da. you heard boudin say it there. he talked about the real estate and the big tech money that he says fueled that recall. >> reporter: we did not hear it here because they said it is a street level operation that began a year ago here at the del mar
1:42 am
tavern as you said. they came here, they seen the polls, they knew they were supposed to win and felt confident and they waited for the results and they waited and finally the count came in and the place exploded. the results came in shortly before 9:00. 61% of voters saying san francisco needs a new d.a. >> 61%. [cheers and applause] >> reporter: people hugging, high-fiving. >> san francisco -- [cheers and applause] >> reporter: with the nation watching, boudin. only holding office for a little more than two years but was blamed for a lack of justice system. the next da is up to the mayor. >> i know people have been talking to her. i don't know who they are. i don't have an opinion. >> reporter: what i would compare to this to if you are watching your favorite
1:43 am
sports team and they win on that last play of the game it was that electric. but people here will tell you there was far much more on the line here. back to you. >> okay. thank you. let's bring in our political analyst. larry, i know you are not surprised boy the outcome. we saw it swinging to the other side. but, does this is a that the progressive march even has a limit for progressives? >> i think so. we knew there was always a difference of opinion between progressives and moderates, you get too far out and people say you have to bring it in a little bit. in fairness it is not about boudin is about a ballot proposition we passed that liberalized the crime issue. there are a lot of fingers to point here. but he took the brunt. >> larry, obviously this is only half of the effort for the people fighting to recall the district attorney. now the work starts.
1:44 am
who is going to replace him and then will that district attorney be able to turn around some of the crime that people are seeing that got the first da recalled in the first place? >> crime is part of it. that is absolutely the truth. also, the relationship between the police and the da's office was so toxic. that did not help anybody. so, i think the fence-mending will begin and begin quickly and the mayor will find the right person to do it. >> all right, thank you, larry gerston, you stay there and we will bring you back to talk about other issues. right now we will talk about race for governor. newsom took the lead tonight, other top candidates included brian dahle. tonight it looks like the runoff is set between newsom and dahle. >> the race for senator confusing on the ballot. alex padilla's name appeared twice. that is because he was
1:45 am
appointed to harris'seat. he is the winner for the raft of the current term that ends in january, padilla also on the ballot for a six year term that begins january of 2023. definitely taking the lead tonight along with republican mark meuser. both will face off for that senate seat in november. >> what about the mayor of san jose and who will replace him? that is another race people across the bay area are watching tonight. >> the mayor termed out. no incumbent. tonight, a clear front-runner, though. we are at the celebration for the current vote leader for cindy chavez, show has been around for a long time in san jose politics. >> reporter: yes, she has. she is still here. the party ended but everyone still wants to talk to her. she is way over on the left talking to our colleagues. she is wrapping up the party here. early returns came in after
1:46 am
8:00 this evening and this place erupted. they realized that cindy chavez will be the one, one of two candidates headed for the runoff. her opponent, councilman matt mayhem. she wrapped up just before 9:00 to cheers and applause. she has no shortage of political experience. she served on san jose city council before a failed run for mayor. she ran and won a seat on the board of supervisors. likely november opponent is matt mayhem. he has only been on the city council for a year and a half >> the thing that i offer is a track record of accomplishment and experience in the public sector. the city of san jose is a big place. it needs to turn in a big direction. that will take experience. that is why i am running. that is why i decided to run in the first place.
1:47 am
>> i think voters want to see accountability for results, doing a lot of the same things and expecting different outcomes. time to take a different direction. voters want a choice and they will have one in november. >> they will face off in the november runoff election. the winner gets the mayor seat. damian trujillo, back to you. >> thank you. a new sheriff for the first time, smith decided not to run for a seventh term. >> joining us now bay area robert honda live in san jose. robert this is one of the elections where the person not on the ballot was the biggest talking point. >> reporter: that is right. maybe because of that there was a lot of interest generated in the santa clara county sheriff's race. early returns, two candidates
1:48 am
appear poised for a runoff. >> at his election party. jensen is upbeat as early returns show him to be one of the top two candidates. jensen, a retired long time sheriff's deputy ran and lost to laurie smith in the past but says his stance against her before helped him now. >> my first priority of building the public trust and changing the culture of the sheriff's office that is in dire straits. and palo alto police chief and his experience with the sheriff's department and police chief gives him an edge. >> that diversity in policing has really helped and given me the opportunity to pull on those experiences in different jurisdictions. >> reporter: the other two candidates drawing votes, current sheriff deputies are christine mcguy and shawn allen. >> reporter: now, again, top two are doing pretty well at this point. you will need to see the activity inside
1:49 am
to understand there are still plenty of votes to count. live. >> san jose, robert handa, back to you. >> we have the latest results on our website. click on the story box for a list of races that we are tracking. again, we are back in 60 seconds with a terrifying encounter caught on camera. a south bay woman opens her garage and finds strangers inside. what happens next. plus, a warning from the police of a home invasion robbery. >> also, a forth option now. the fda could soon approve it and why you might be interest inside this one i'm chief meteorologist with the latest excessive heat watch headed for the bay area. back with that in less than 10 minutes. as we go to a break a look at more of the outcomes
1:50 am
another race we are
1:51 am
following is attorney general. california attorney general position. governor newsom appointed rob bonta to the post last year. bonta is the projected winner tonight. 57%. but we are still waiting to see who he will be running against as you can see it is close. now, to the state controller's race. a single republican is facing four democrats. chen is the republican that might offer him an advantage because the democratic vote will be split between four candidates. right now we are looking at cohen, 22%. top 2 advance to the november election. >> race for lieutenant governor, the clear front-runner, kounalakis. underwood jackobs is in second place. >> despite big races and big money voter turnout was dismal here in california. >> yes. we tried to find out why.
1:52 am
>> reporter: tab hraeugz machines are working over time tonight. they are really starting to wrap up right now because so few voters came out for this election. >> reporter: voting day in contra costa county means different things. >> it is my civic duty to vote and be part of the solution and not the problem. >> reporter: some people in this county cast their ballot early in the state primary just over 113,000 people out of 706,000 voting by mail, that is 16%. >> conta costa county we are seeing low turnout compared to a general election. that is typical for primary elections when it is a midterm election. >> some 13,000 people voted in person here. megan is one of them. >> i don't follow politics a lot. i probably should more. but, yeah, when i hear about the local things, of course it makes me. >> we have been through a lot
1:53 am
these few years and i really believe that every vote counts. >> reporter: it is not just here turnout low across the state. the tab hraeugz tabulation machines will wrap up here in the next few minutes. let's bring in our political analyst again, larry a couple of things here in terms of voter turnout. is it fatigue because we had a recall election nine months ago and also let's talk about the demographics of the people that did slow up. what does that tell you? >> reporter: voter fatigue, you are right. the fact that we had another election where the candidates were not particularly important. i don't want to disparage the governor but it is not the president kind of thing. that is another thing and then the district thing, redistricting. people were confused where to
1:54 am
go and who their candidates were. put it together, low turnout, very low turnout. >> now, low voter turnout in november as well then? >> we know off year election which is it is because it is not a presidential election always has a lower turnout. you will see a better turnout in november because we will have a dozen or more meaty statewide ballot proposals. that will bring out lots of different people to take positions on those. >> and larry, in terms of the people that did show up to vote how does that skew some races in terms of we probably see in these races we have seen minorities showing up less in a primary race than we have in other times than maybe the major races. how does that change the outcome of some of these elections. >> reporter: it does. it absolutely does. when you don't come out and vote those that do have the power to get it done. in this case it is white people, 65 and
1:55 am
over who had the greatest percentage. so, that means they will have the greatest amount to say over these things. poor people, young people, minorities turned out in smaller numbers than average that means they will have less to say so that is a lesson for the next time. >> thank you, larry for your time. now, some other races that we are following, several council seats in san jose. district 1 seat is open. looking at it right now. kamei was in the lead there. in district 3, torres leading that field. district 5, one of the races to replace term out this year, nora campos is in first with 32%. >> the rules are still trickling in. our website is a good place for
