saved by voting yes with a drop in tobacco related healthcare costs. >> it's an easy way to prevent kids from preventing the sales. >> if i don't have juice and flavors as you would call it to sell, then what am i going to put on my stores to sell? >> reporter: putting on the argument of prevention. shawn chitnis kpix 5. we've got you covered on election night. national races and results on kpix 5. local races on kbcw and streaming on cbs news bay area. our coverage starts at 5:00. . still ahead on kpix 5 and cbs news bay area. a bay area missing persons case reaches the conclusion that everyone's fearing. the road map alexis gabe's suspected killer left to her remains. i was thinking my children, my grandchildren, i never thought it would be paul. >> an emotional interview from house speaker nancy pelosi. the first time she talks
