5:06 am
next few years will be difficult. he also had fun at the expense of meg whitman. >> my opponent didn't really realize it but when she made that statement a few months ago that she and her husband decided to move from new york to california 30 years ago because there was such a good governor here and california was working for everybody! [ laughter ] >> reporter: for her part, meg whitman was also on the campaign trail before traveling to southern california. she began her day at a could coffee shop in menlo park. >> we just said listen, you know, i'm going to tell people why i'm running, we are going to get out here and talk to people in their homes, schools, places of business. and, you know, we're going to remind people about jerry brown's record and, of course, what he said about being governor the last time. >> reporter: let's look at the latest field poll numbers. it shows jerry brown with a 10- point lead over meg whitman at this point.
5:07 am
whitman though at that rally yesterday in menlo park says her polling shows the race to be dead even. of course, one common message from all the candidates on the gubernatorial side on the senate side is get out the vote. everybody needs the base to turn out. polls open like this one in downtown san jose at 7 a.m. and 60% voter turnout is projected, typical for midterms. >> thank you, mark sayre in san jose. we'll have extensive coverage of the election tonight on cbs 5 with an election special from 9 a.m. to 11 p.m. and then a special edition of cbs 5 eyewitness news from 11 p.m. to midnight. let's get a check of weather and traffic. let's start with elizabeth. how's our commute? >> reporter: if you are heading into san francisco right now, coming up 280, you can use the king street off- ramp there by at&t park. but they have closed the stretch of the embarcadero while the giants return home.
5:08 am
you saw sharon chin throughout where all the fans were gathered. the giants have left the players themselves have left. a few fans are still out there. embarcadero is closed between 2nd and townsend. not sure how long it will be there but in the meantime there are detours in place. live look outside 880 through oakland, dark out there. but maybe you can see a few taillights. this is traffic northbound 880 towards high street by the coliseum. no problems in either direction. traffic very light across the san mateo bridge. 13-minute drive time from lay ward to the peninsula. the other direction going against the commute fine problem-free down off of the high-rise. the golden gate bridge a little bridge check no problems through marin county. no big hot spots so far this morning and mass transit is all running on time for bart, ace, muni and caltrain. that's your traffic. here's tracy with your forecast. hey, thanks, elizabeth. it was nice yesterday.

your kids' hands. and it's bad enough that a purse was stolen, but thieves also took her best friend. the key clue that could help bring this pup home. our state is in a real mess. and i'm not going to give you any phony plans or snappy slogans that don't go anywhere. we have to make some tough decisions. we have to live within our means. we have got to take the power from the state capitol and move it down to the local level, closer to the people. and no new taxes, without voter approval. we have got to pull together not as republicans or as democrats but as californians first. at this stage in my life, i'm prepared to do exactly that.
5:11 am
5:12 am
above at&t park last night. and this is a look at giants fans, fan frenzy, celebrating this big world series win in texas. are these live pictures? i was wondering, still a lot of fans out there but the giants just arriving home about 4:00 getting off the bus and greeting their fans, talking to

"don't ask, don't tell" will remain in place until at least the spring. a federal appeals court has extended the freeze on an order to halt the policy while it reviews the governor's challenge. the stay will re-- the government's challenge. the stay will remain in effect which could take a year or more. a murder at a nightclub in

5:19 am
will be blocked for this roadwork until 7 a.m. so watch out for that. if you are continuing across the san mateo bridge, we have a camera just past the toll plaza on the flat section of 92 and you can see the traffic is moving fine in either direction. hey, if you are coming up 280 heading into san francisco, the king street off-ramp is re- opened and they have re-opened the embarcadero. the giants coming home after winning the world series so they shut down the stretch of embarcadero near at&t but everything is calmed down so no problems going into san francisco from 280 or the bay bridge, quiet across the upper deck. no delay approaching the bay bridge toll plaza. mass transit is on time for bart, ace, muni and caltrain. remember our radio partners, kcbs 740-am and 106.9-fm. that's your traffic. here's tracy with your forecast. hey, thanks, elizabeth. forecast, boy, we have a really nice stretch of weather

fans lover them and they were playing for us as much as we were clearing for them. it's beautiful. >> reporter: the fans had been celebrating since game five last night and thousands of people hugged and hi-5ed in a sea of orange and black outside at&t and civic center. most of the celebration were nonviolent but there were a few people who got out of hand in a couple of hot spots very early this morning, for example, at 22nd and mission, some windows got broken and there was some giants-related graffiti, as well. right now though the players have all left, the fans who were here left. if they were able to sleep it would be out of pure exhaustion. >> sharon chin at at&t park in san francisco. sharon, thanks. >> i bet they might still be celebrating. probably the players tivoed the game and they want to watch it. dennis o'donnell was in texas when the giants dominated the rangers. he shows us the highlights from
5:34 am
historic game 5. reporter: thank you, sydnie and juliette. nobody thought the giants were going to do it. they are the world series champions. how are they going to beat the ace pitcher cliff lee not once but twice? scoreless in the 7th two on two out when edgar renteria delivers the biggest home run of his career a three-run shot to left. that was plenty for tim lincecum who went the first eight innings and then turned the ball over to brian wilson. >> here it is, struck him out! and for the first timing since 1954, the giants are world champions! >> reporter: and finally, the drought is over. the giants are the best team in baseball. 56 years of waiting. >> this is what we're talking about, 56 years, willie mays, we got you, baby, we got you, baby, whoo! >> reporter: san francisco is going nuts tonight. what do you have to say to the city? >> oh, man i can't wait to get back and just enjoy with them. they have been waiting so long

5:36 am
i heard the horns honking. once they won all the way until about midnight. the fans were going crazy all night long. people may be sleeping in a little bit today. quiet on the road. we still have this accident, though in alameda county. it's in the center divide westbound 580 after 205 so chp is on scene now. not impacting your drive time, though. still a nice ride along westbound 880 from altamont pass to the dublin interchange. 14 minutes and we can show you another live traffic camera right there by tassajara. you can see traffic. headlights, caltrans camera so it's updating now but at westbound 580 a nice drive approaching dublin. in the south bay, no problems coming up from morgan hill on 101. top speeds to santa clara. through downtown san jose, here's a live look at 280. once you get past downtown closer to the 880 interchange. mass transit is on time. if you need to recover from
5:37 am
last night just want to take it easy and ride mass transit, bart, ace, muni and caltrain are all on schedule. that's your traffic. here's tracy with your forecast. hey, thanks, elizabeth. . i heard those horns going on last night. today's forecast, worth yelling about, plenty of sunshine expected and we continue to warm up. so our graphic, warming trend day 2. san jose with 75 degrees yesterday. 57 in livermore. 74 napa, 70 san francisco. today, 3 degrees warmer in san jose with 78 degrees. 79 in livermore. 77 napa. 74 in san francisco. more bay area cities with 78 in antioch, 80 pleasanton, 77 in hayward, 72 in half moon bay, 76 kentfield and the upper 70s in santa rosa and also in sonoma. today day 2, day 3, day 4, yeah, we'll take a look at the seven-day forecast in just a
5:38 am
few moments. back to you. >> thank you. the time now is 5:37. it's the day for the big midterm elections. the poll will open less than half hour from now. hour and a half from now, that is. mark sayre is at a polling place in san jose to show us how some of the candidates spent the last day of their cam pages. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. let's talk about that senate race. one of the most closely watched senate races in the nation. of course, barbara boxer and carly fiorina for her part, carly fiorina she spent her last day of campaigning making one stop in elk grove near sacramento. fiorina says it is her belief that undecided voters will at this particular time balance in her direction and she continued to hammer away at the record of barbara boxer. >> we need to do something different in this state. enough of a 28-year career politician who has not done anything to put 2.3 million people back to work. enough of a career politician who has done nothing to turn the water back on in our great
5:39 am
central valley. enough of a career politician who has... >> reporter: as for barbara boxer, she wrapped up her final full day of campaigning at a rally at oakland where she appeared with jerry brown. boxer did not mince words about fiorina saying fiorina sympathizes too much with big business and boxer also touted her record. >> i want to tell you something, oakland. you're the key. you're the key to sending me back to fight for the middle class, to fight for jobs, to fight for these carpenters, to put them back to work [ applause and cheers ] >> to stand up against the special interests. >> reporter: let's look at the latest polling date on this race. those polls show barbara boxer with a 49 to 41% lead over carly fiorina. fiorina not surprisingly taking aim at that poll saying it is not accurate. we are here at a polling place in san jose where in santa clara county some interesting developments with mail-in ballots. apparently the ballots that
5:40 am
went out had some smudges on them from the printer so the optical scanning machines could not read them. so what's happening here in santa clara county election workers are physically erasing those smudges from the mail-in ballots before they are running them through. all vote are being counted. but probably the first of many glitches in the system we'll probably hear about today. >> thank you, mark sayre in san jose. we may not find out the results of some races for day and that's because less than 40% of the 7.6 million mail-in ballots statewide have not even been returned. if you have a mail-in ballot you have to drop it off at any polling place by 8 p.m. tonight. >> got mine in my purse. americans heading to the polls today to determine who will run congress. democrats urging voters to turn out and save their majorities. with that purpose, president obama will do a series of radio
5:41 am
interviews today. other prominent democrats worked the campaign trail late into the night monday in a final evident to rally supporters. >> i keep looking for this enthusiasm gap the republicans say exists. and i can't find it to save my life. >> we have a great ticket and we're going to have a great night. >> most political observers expect the republicans to take control of the house but the margin of seats is uncertain. all 435 house seat are in play. right now, the breakdown is 255 democrats, 178 republicans and two vacancies. a party needs 218 seats to get a majority which means republicans only need to capture 39 seats to take control. 37 of the 100 senate seats run for grabs. 19 of them are currently held by democrats. 18 by republicans. the republicans need to win 10 seat to take control of the
5:42 am
