5:02 am
bay bridge. not a lot of cars out of oakland into san francisco just yet. in fact, those cash lanes we usually see at least 20 to 30 cars deep at this point. but right now pretty lightly traveled oakland into san francisco. so no troubles there. people traveling out of the altamont pass busy 28 minutes, 205 to 680 business as usual. clear through the southbound side of 680. westbound 580 stop and go conditions through the altamont pass to grant line. elsewhere, taking a look at 680 northbound just past highway 4, the one lane is still blocked for an earlier car fire. everything is out. they are cleaning up the mess there. crews will be in the lane for quite some time. non-commute direction so no delays north 680 highway 4 to the eastshore freeway. michelle. gavin newsom is now california's governor-elect. the democratic lieutenant governor will replace the
5:03 am
termed out jerry brown as governor in january. newsom defeated republican businessman john cox 59-41%. >> and he spoke to supporters last night in los angeles. >> you stood for courage, courage for a change. and now i can stand before you knowing i will have the incredible privilege of serving as your next governor. >> meanwhile, cox appeared before supporters in san diego to concede and congratulate newsom. >> we gave it a run. we got the message out. we got the issues out. thank you all. thank you all. >> newsom's election is the first time since 1887 that a democratic governor has been succeeded by another democrat in california. this morning, ballot counters are tallying up the votes in santa clara county. it will be a while before any final numbers are reported.
5:04 am
>> kpix 5's jackie ward is at the registrar of voters office with the latest. >>rt4:15, so less than an hour ago, 46% of the votes here in santa clara county had been counted. that means it's a long day ahead for these ballot counters. in any event, we saw some of them pull up with new food supplies because they have already had a long night. it's no surprise, either. check out these long lines of voters yesterday. the county won't have complete voter turnout numbers for us until the votes are counted but we know that things were already off to a record- breaking start here are. more than a quarter million people voted early, nearly 900,000 people registered to vote. those are both the highest numbers ever for santa clara. at 8 p.m., 198,200 ballots were tallied. we caught up with one woman who stood in line to vote. >> my ancestors, i'm african- american, clearly, and they went through trying to get this right for me so it's
5:05 am
important for me to vote every election because of all the that my ancestors went through. >> reporter: this is the first regular election that allowed for conditional voter registration. now, this is a new law that allows you to register and vote the same day right up until the very last minute. early estimates indicate that more than 1200 people showed up to conditionally register and cast a provisional ballot. they are actually expecting that number in 2020 to be even higher now that word has gotten out that you can do this. so as far as all the voter turnout is concerned, we'll be -- i won't be tallying up, but i'll bring you the numbers all morning long. in san jose, jackie ward, kpix 5. democrats will have control of the house when next year's congress republics extended their majority in the senate. nikole ious live on capitol hill with the latest. reporter: good morning. voters in yesterday's midterm
5:06 am
elections gave democrats the majority but it wasn't the blue wave that they hoped for. virginia democrat wexton defeated republican comstock in one of the first races called, one of more than two dozen seats flipped in yesterday's election that helped democrats take back the house. >> today is more than about democrats and republicans. it's about restoring the constitution's checks and balance to the trump administration. >> reporter: republicans diminished the blue wave by increasing their majority in the senate. many credited president trump. the gop also took back senate seats in north dakota and missouri. >> what is president trump saying about the results so far? >> reporter: well, you know, he is viewing it very positively. he has been pretty active on twitter this morning calling it a big victory, a big win and now he is going even
5:07 am
further saying that pundits who don't give him the proper credit are fake news. he also just put out a tweet saying that if the democrats now that they have gained the majority in the house, if they are going to investigate him, then perhaps he and republicans may consider investigating democrats. so we will certainly hear a lot more from the president later this morning when he holds a news conference at 8:30 pacific time. >> nikole killion live on capitol hill, thank you. california voters have rejected a controversial rent control proposition. prop 10 would have repealed a state law that restricts local governments' use of rent control. it fell by a margin of 60-40%. supporters will continue their efforts to make rental housing more affordable in california. >> a flame was started and we are nowhere near putting it out. so this is a rallying cry to everyonee state of
5:08 am
california that we still have work to do. >> opponents contend prop 10 would have reduced the number of rental units as demand continues to grow. >> by far the majority of owners of properties that tenants occupied are small business owners. there's this misconception that they are the ones that would be devastated by prop 10. >> kpix 5 political analyst melissa caen says prop 10 of a couple of major barriers. >> so i think what happened with the rent control measure was again, a, it sort of had a ton of money against it. and b, it ran into the issue of being an urban problem, an urban solution, and folks elsewhere just didn't have any incentive to get on board with it. the oakland mayoral results are n mayor libby schaaf maintained a dominant -- are in. mayor libby schaaf maintained
5:09 am
a dominant lead. she will now tackle homeless and illegal dumping issues. she took no vote for granted, she said, and said that the numbers reflect her commitment to the city. >> oakland hasn't had a two- term mayor for 16 years. and so to give the city some stability, i think, would be a wonderful vote of confidence from oakland voters. >> we'll update you on more races all morning. you can also find a full list of the results on time now 5:09. >> this morning, there is high fire danger across northern california. coming up, the counties pg&e says should prepare for a power shutdown. >> and we are tracking the winds, dry offshore winds kicking up through the next several hours. we'll time it out for you on futurecast and that high fire danger coming up. >> and we're off to a great start on the roads for your wednesday morning drive. we'll have a look at our bay area bridges plus your south bay drive times coming up.

5:35 am
ballots alone. despite all the ways people could vote early, some waited until the very last second to vote. >> i was sitting at home at 7:15 and i felt it was my civic duty to vote. so i called and they said as long as i was in line by 8:00, i could get in. so -- >> wow. talk about pushing it to the last minute. geez. >> yeah. so i think it's worth it. >> reporter: this is the first regular election that allowed for conditional voter registration so this is a relatively new law that allows you to register and vote the same day right up until the last minute as we heard. early estimates indicate that more than 1200 people showed up to conditionally register and cast a provisional ballot. so it seems like the people here making about 2% of progress an hour because last time i saw you guys in the last half-hour the numbers from 4:15, they had county about 46% of the vote. this half-hour it was 48%. so we'll see if we can hit that halfway mark the next time i talk to you.

5:43 am
compared to abrams 48.6% of the voteabrams has refused to concede. at this point, it's almost 9:00 a.m. georgia time. she is still refuses to make that call to kemp. in the past she has promised the possibility of a recount. a lot of those votes came in late. a lot of them came from metro atlanta where people had to wait in very long lines and there have been a lot of accusations about voter suppression and other malfeasance in this election. so it will be very interesting to see what abrams does this morning. with these new erou 100% of precincts reporting, according to the "associated press," we'll see what happens. thank you. here in the bay area a isne all 90% contained this morning. a pile of construction debris at the recology center went up in flames. the smoke prompted an air quality advisory for most of the day. kids were also sent home from a nearby preschool and the city even checked on voters at

5:46 am
north 101 at moffett boulevard. they have shut down two lanes because there's a lot of debris in the road. this is lightly traveled right now so not too many es or delays as you work your way through there. slightly slow past the scene. past that clear from mountain view into san francisco. south of there into morgan hill. gilroy into morgan hill, usually slow around this time of the morning but making matters worse, there's a large mattress that's stuck in the road for half an hour so north 101 at coughlin two lanes blocked. 13 minutes from tennant to cochran. over to the bay bridge toll plaza, we have a crash just before the toll plaza right around the maze. it looks like it's not blocking lanes but may cause some spectator slowing. another crash reported westbound 80 at university. metering lights probably are on at this point. we are seeing traffic jammed at least out of the maze to the toll plaza, gets better
5:47 am
into san francisco. here's mary with the forecast. we are looking at plenty of sunshine as we head through the day. here's a live look with our "salesforce tower" camera looking east. and you can see the clear skies out there. and, of course, our beautiful bay bridge. so temperatures are chilly. we are talking 40s, 50s and even down to the 30s. so santa rosa 39. napa in the 30s, as well. so for the north bay, really waking up to those temperatures in the 30s. concord 47. oakland 52. livermore you're at 44. 53 in san francisco. and 47 in san jose. so cool to chilly, clear skies this morning once again. that sunshine continues for us with above average temperatures for this time of year. we're talking about 4 to 8 degrees warmer than normal. and extreme fire danger that starts tonight. so we are going to see offshore winds really kick in. it's so dry out there, then you combine those northeast winds with gusts up to 60 miles per hour, especially for the north and east bay hills, and that does mean critical
5:48 am
