4:33 am
look at all this green. and there's one spot in fremont. we will call that out, coming up. turning to the primary election coverage. we begin with the local recall election that is getting a lot of attention. effort to unseat san francisco district attorney chesa boudin. this is proposition h. yes means recall the d.a., no means keep him in office. this morning, the results resounding. boudin is out. we have more reaction on those results. >> reporter: the party for supporters of chesa boudin never got off the ground. nbc news called the race within an hour of paul's closing. supporters are disappointed. they had him and hoped he would survive this election. is 18 months were dominated by the pandemic and widespread property crimes. many of the victims complained
4:34 am
boudin declined to pursue hate crime charges and some cases. he also became critics and complained about the weight the district attorney, a self described reformer would handle prosecutions, often opting for what they described as lenient plea deal. tonight he says he is a of the anger that voters felt because of the pandemic. he met people are angry. they are frustrated. and i want to be very clear about what happened tonight. the right-wing billionaires outspent us three to one. they exploited an environment in which people are appropriately upset. and they created in electrodynamic where we were literally shadowboxing. >> reporter: he did not take any questions from reporters at this event including whether he plans on running for office again. his removal means that the
4:35 am
mayor will be appointing someone to the d.a.s office for the second time in her tenure pick she appointed a replacement for the former district attorney who moved to los angeles. for today in the bay, i am 26. as you would expect, a celebration erupted at the watch party when they learned voters recalled chesa boudin. today, we are at delmar tavern with that part of the story. >> reporter: the effort to recall him began a year ago. a lot of money was spent along the way. a lot of effort and that is why, tonight, here on lumbar street in san francisco, they came for the results they were confident. they saw the pulse and felt they were going to win, and they did. when they found out, it was electric in there. people were hugging and high- fiving. i would compare it to when the
4:36 am
san francisco giants beat the kansas city royals. i'm telling you, it was like that. chesa boudin, the nation was watching and he is on his way out of the office. now it is up to the mayor who will appoint his successor. the folks here who wanted boudin out are not saying who they would like to see in. that the story here or today in the bay. >> interesting. so who will be the next mayor of san jose? another race people were watching. >> so, there is no incumbent in this race in this morning there is a clear front runner. our reporter has more on the celebration for the current vote leader cindy chavez. >> reporter: they are celebrating here well into the night and feel comfortable that they have a good lead in the polls heading into the november runoff but they are going up against a mayhem and relatively new comer to the scene. he has a year and a half of experience being a member of the city council. cindy has a lot of experience,
4:37 am
first being a city council member and then running for mayor. and being unsuccessful there pick in the being on the board of supervisors. she is on her second run for the mayor of the city. the main distinction is experience. she says she has a lot of experience coming to the negotiating table and getting things done and getting people together. she contrast that with matt mahan and matt mahan says it is time for things to change on the way of doing things in san jose has to change because we are not getting the results we really need. so, he says it will be a clear choice in november. cindy is packed more by the labor faction in the south bay and matt mahan is backed more by the business aspect. so, when you say there will be a choice, there really is going to be a choice. there may be no gray area between cindy chavez and matt
4:38 am
mahan. we will find out in november. in the meantime, santa clara county is getting a new sheriff for the first time in more than two decades. this comes after the decision to not run for a seventh term. here is the current look at the results. kevin jensen is ahead by 32% but robert jonsen is very close. with 30%. today in the base reporter is in san jose with that part of our coverage. >> reporter: it is the first time that lori smith was not on the ballot but the incumbent sheriff cast a shadow on the race. at this point, the two main candidates who appear poised for a run up are bob johnson, the police chief in palo alto, who has had a lot of experience
4:39 am
both in los angeles county sheriff's office as well as being a chief in menlo park pick the other challenger seems to be kevin jensen. a long time service officer who ran against lori smith before and feels as though his experience in running against her before is helping him now. both focus a lot on cleaning up the department in making the up for the mess it is in right now in terms of morale. now, there are still plenty of votes to count and the other two candidates christina guy and allen who are current sheriff's deputies are still pulling pretty well but still, at this point, it looks like bob johnson and kevin johnson are headed for a runoff in november. this morning, results are still trickling in. our website is a great place for updates. head to , click on the top story and that will take you to a list of all of the races we are following. there are many. highlighting your favorite posts a still ahead on stay in the bay. we will tell you the update instagram is set to rollout for its users satisfying those cravings will get easier pick the new year options uber eats users will have when ordering from
