5:25 am
president obama will work with a much more conservative congress welcome back. what many predicted is now reality. president obama will have to work with a much more conservative congress next year. >> to break it all down for us, james taylor is here. the big loss for democrats also means the end of nancy pelosi's run as house speaker. huge change for congress. so what does this mean, break it down for us? >> i think this means that barack obama's original idea of bipartisanship will now come into play. i think now that the republicans have the house, they have the responsibility for the electorate to deliver a
5:26 am
policy so it's not as easy to sort of govern as an oppositional party. so now that they're in i honestly am probably from an unorthodox perspective think that this is actually a good thing for barack obama. i think if you look at the history of presidents who are considered great or near great they have sort of risen to the occasion when this kind of thing happens. >> so what's next for nancy pelosi? >> i think nancy pelosi, she obviously retains her seat. the question is whether she will maintain leadership as a minority leader, which is doubt: she will continue to represent san francisco bay area in congress. but i don't see her being leading after the sound defeat. it's almost as much a repudiation of her positions as barack obama's. >> let's talk about the governor's race. no big surprise. you said don't look at the polls but -- >> yeah, well, i mean they were all over the place around the country. but jerry brown performed well and carried much of the democratic party's victory near
5:27 am
california. no matter what happened nationally, california would be a sort of firewall and jerry brown was the sort of forefront of that whole moment. >> what does it tell you about the constituency? were you really surprised how far apart -- i mean, i thought -- [overlapping speakers] >> people have to be careful in reading into this that this is sort of an affirmation of the republican party agenda. if you go back to 1998 to 2004, 2008, the country and electorate, the constituency has gone back and forth between republicans and democrats and liberal and conservatives so this is not i think an affirmation as much as as it is a reflection of a great divide among the constituents and electorate in the united states. >> we have other race to talk about this morning and propositions. so thanks for sticking with us all morning and we'll check back with you again, cbs 5 political analyst james taylor. thank you. 5:27. it is proof that every vote really does count.
5:28 am
>> it's a major race that's still too close to call. we'll have the latest on the tight race between jerry mcnerney and his tea party challenger in district 11 when we come back. what's old is new again. as governor-elect jerry brown heads back to sacramento, tell you what the governor-elect has planned for later today.

5:33 am
she called the governor-elect brown to congratulate him before she addressed the public and whitman telling her supporters, while her journey may be ending, the mission is not. >> our challenges are daunting. and they won't be solved by politics as usual. but we do need leaders in sacramento to rise to the occasion and work together. it is my hope that a new era of bipartisan problem-solving can begin tonight. >> reporter: whitman shelled out over $140 million of her own money on this race. the final tally for this race is expected to top $200 million between all the candidates making that "the" most expensive statewide race in united states history. governor-elect jerry brown expected to hold a news conference at 11 a.m. this morning at his campaign office in oakland. >> thank you, mark sayre in oakland. 5:33. democrat barbara boxer is holding on to her seat in the

5:35 am
it's going to be hard to get around san francisco later on this morning. for right now we're quiet as far as the morning commute goes. we are just starting to see our first bit of slowing through antioch and only yellow sensors not red yet. that's all going to change in the next half hour but just a little bit of slow traffic on the westbound lanes of highway 4 approaching a street. golden gate bridge lane changes done in time for the morning commute. everything fine is cross the span. there are 42 bart trains all running on time. but they will be running longer trains for all those people heading to the giants victory parade. as a reminder, the parking lots tend to fill up quickly usually by 6:30 a.m. most stations are jam-packed. so plan ahead. other forms of mass transit the larkspur ferry is also offering two extra ferry services to accommodate all the people heading into san francisco for the parade. that's your traffic. here's tracy with your forecast. hey, thanks, elizabeth. it is going to be a big day
5:36 am
with the parade going on so you're probably wondering what's it going to feel like out there? it's going to be warm. it will remain warm so we decided to create a graphic to kind of show you how today fares versus what it typically feels like. concord average high in november 71. santa rosa at 70. 69 in san jose. 67 in san francisco. today 80 in concord. that's 9 degrees above average. 82 santa rosa. 12 degrees. 14 degrees above average in san jose with 83 predicted for today. and 57 degrees in san francisco. another warm day but cooler weather is just around the corner along with a chance of rainfall. i have your seven-day forecast coming up. >> all right. thank you so much, tracy. some major drama in the 11th congressional district which includes parts of alameda, contra costa and santa clara counties. democratic incumbent jerry mcnerney now trails by 13
5:37 am
votes in his bid for reelection. it's been getting close your all morning long. ann notarangelo was in danville last night at a post- election event for republican challenger david harmer. reporter: david harmer said he wasn't sure what time he was going to find out for certain whether or not he was going to be going to washington. but he knew all along that this was going to be a tough fought race. this is the third time has run for congress. the first time in utah, twice here in california. but oddly he says it's a job he doesn't really want. >> i had to be talked into this. i was recruited. but i want it because my kids and everybody else's are bearing an unstainable debt. we're' running for two reasons. the first is to get control of federal spending. the second is to reinvigorate a stagnant economy. >> reporter: the harmer campaign got a big boost from tea party members who spent thousands to help him.
5:38 am
they liked his conservative stance and his slogan, you grow the economy, not the government. but it was a tough sell to get a majority of people to agree on any one opinion. in danville, ann notarangelo, cbs 5. mcnerney is now in his second term. he first won the seat in 2006 as democrats across the country swept control of the house. all other house members representing the nine-county bay area were re-elected. in addition, democrats won all of the state senate and assembly races in the bay area. it is 5:38. the big night for republicans will of course lead to a drastically changed congress for president obama come january. randall pinkston is covering the big shake-up in washington. thanks for joining us. i understand president obama will be speaking in a few hours probably regarding all of this and the change in congress. >> reporter: yes. at about 1:00 he will make his first public comment on camera. there was a statement released last night, but his first public comment on camera about
5:39 am
the election results and we are expecting that the president will call for cooperation with the new prospective leader of the house of representatives, the new speaker-to-be, john boehner and, of course, he will be keeping a majority in the senate under harry reid. a slimmer majority but a majority nonetheless. >> so what is the mood, randall, in washington now? i mean, i don't think republicans were dancing in the streets but certainly, they were looking at the balance of power. >> reporter: certainly. the republicans may not be dancing in the streets, but they are dancing wherever they are. [ laughter ] >> smiles all around. the tea party was pretty happy about the outcome, as well. as now, they played a pretty significant role in changing the game as it were in this year's election cycle. they have held news conferences and some of the republicans who had received tea party reports support -- support, rather, say they will be holding tea party caucuses once get to capitol
5:40 am
hill. one of those, of course, tea party favorite rand paul the new senator-elect from kentucky. >> what does this mean for nancy pelosi? now we have boehner in the house. >> reporter: speaker pelosi remains the speaker until the new term of congress. there is a question as to whether there will be some effort to push through more legislation in the lame duck session. we haven't heard one way or the other but that of course is a possibility. but the larger question is whether she will follow the path of former speaker newt gingrich, who after he lost the majority elected to resign from the house of representatives. we have no indication that speaker pelosi will resign. we'll have to wait and see. >> it's going to be an interesting couple of months before january. randall, thank you so much for joining us. randall pinkston in washington this morning. >> reporter: sydnie, juliette, thank you. >> you can watch the president's speech, again, now
5:41 am
it will actually be at 10 a.m. our time here on cbs 5 and also >> a lot going on this morning with the giants parade, as well. >> yeah. it is 5:41. we still don't know who the next mayor of oakland will be. that race will go to an instant runoff. the top two vote-getters were former state senator don perata and councilwoman jean quan but neither received a majority. when voters cast their ballots, they ranked the candidates. the voters' alternate choices will help determining the runoff winner and results of that are expected late friday afternoon. perata said if elected safety in oakland will be his top rye or the. >> to bring those 80 police positions back to make sure that people understand there is a new set of priorities in oakland and keep these people here safe, keeping our kids safe, our elderly and business community safe is a priority. >> for continuing election results, stay with us this morning. if you need to head to work, we
5:42 am
have the results on our website, it has been quite a week for the giants. a world series win and now a huge celebration in the streets of san francisco. >> anne makovec is at civic center, where fans already are lining up for this morning's victory parade. anne, i think that crowd got a little larger. love the panda hat, looking very sometimish. >> reporter: yeah, i got the panda hat. i'm rocking it. i borrowed it from tommy and cathy here from berkeley.
