slightly more welcoming committee today, detailed progress to has been made to get up and running again normally. governor chris christie revealed on cnn tuesday that mitt romney apologized for leaked information that made its way into a tell-all book about the 2012 campaign. christie slammed the romney team for a complete violation of trust, much like someone leaving their cell phone on. >> i'm terribly sorry! >> the book "double down" reveals romney's team didn't pick him as running mate because his background was littered with political land mines. >> i have to till why phone is on silent. "early start" continues right now. landslide victories in new jersey and new york. nail biting finish in a swing

2:02 am
challenge from conservative republican ken cuccinelli and the bloomberg era is over in new york. for the first time in 20 years, amazingly enough, a democrat in charge. liberal dill de blasio easily becoming the city's 109th mayor. let's bring in political director mark preston. what's your take on last night's results? >> you know, miguel, there are a lot of winners, individual winners. chris christie, a big winner. he won by 60% in a blue state, he never should have done so, but he has done so. in many ways we look towards chris christie, what is his knicks step, is it washington, d.c. where i sit right now? for the republican establishment, they won an election down in mobile, alabama, that will push back the tea party a little bit on its heels. but there's still infighting in the republican party. and in virginia, we've seen democrats take back a governorship that has been in republican hands in a state that is trending blue. so a lot to portend in this
2:03 am
hurdle of 2013 as we move into the midterm elections and certainly 2016 presidential election, miguel. >> moderates basically to have seem to have won the day yesterday. is that the big theme? >> let's use the word centrist. he's a centrist in the way that christie can reach out to voters. and the same were mccauliffe, with a victory that helped you him, a squeaker as you have said in virginia. however, new york city, i don't know if we can use the word "cent arris "centrist." amazing nice overall.
2:04 am
i was interested by the alabama race. what does that say, the tea party favor losing there, an intraparty fight within the republican party to have their sort of, you know, mainstream republican candidate win? >> westerll, certainly a lot of money in. taking a job outside of congress opened up a seat for a republican to basically carry on the flag. what we saw was the tea party put up a candidate who actually almost won. and this was a candidate, miguel who was a birther. who thought that president obama was not board in the united states. this would have been very embarrassing for the republican party. however, they have put enough money into the race, the republican establishment candidate won. he will go on in december to face a democrat. but look, this is a republican state. >> is this a pattern we're likely to see in the midterms coming up with the republican establishment trying to squelch
2:05 am
or smother the tea party? >> you know, we're seeing it already, miguel. there's no question about that. there is a big fight within the republican party. does the tea party take control of it, do the republican establishment, are they able to maintain control of it? and right now, we're starting to see primaries all across the country against establishment republicans. very conservative republicans in many cases but we are seeing that happen in 2014 it be certainly framed as the heart and soul of the republican party. >> may we live in interesting times, mark preston, washington, d.c., get some sleep, please. we'll get the official enrollment figures of the obama care website next week. the republican chairman. house ways and means committee has subpoenaed the figures and wants them by friday. the official in charge of the obama care website told the senate committee is improving, and that it will
2:06 am
be fixed by the end of november as promised. >> everything riding on that, isn't it? >> meanwhile, president obama's approval ratings are taking a nosedive. just 39% of americans approve of the job he's doing, according to the latest gallup poll. 53% now say they disapprove of the president's job performance. those numbers weren't expected to take much of a hit after the government shutdown. republicans reserving much of the blame for that debacle. but that was before the disastrous rollout of the website. words of advice from new jersey governor chris christie in an interview with jake taerp, christie suggested a difference ponce to the offer that obama gave for americans to keep their health insurance. >> here's my suggestion, don't be so cute. and when you make a mistake, admit it. listen if it was a mistake in
2:07 am
2009, if he was mistaken in 2009, 2010 on his understanding of how the law would operate, then just admit it to people. say you know what, i said it, i was wrong. i'm sorry, and we're going to try to fix this and make it better. i think people would give any leader in that circumstance a lot of credit for just, you know, owning up to it. instead of now trying to -- don't lawyer it. people don't like lawyers. i'm a lawyer. they don't like them. >> all right. so christie went on to say that americans are forgiving people. and if the president would just admit that he was wrong, americans say, okay, just fix it now. >> maybe. maybe. >> maybe. police in new jersey say that 20-year-old gunman who opened fire monday night in the paramus mall didn't intend to hurt anybody but himself. authorities tell us richard shoop left behind a note and used a firearm that was legally registered to his brother. prosecutors say he had a long history of drug abuse. shoop was found dead early tuesday morning from a
2:08 am
self-inflicted gunshot wound after firing several shots into the air inside the mall. >> he did a lot of psychological damage to a lot of people, though. embattled toronto mayor rob ford admitting that he smoked crack cocaine, he's also saying he will not step down. in fact, he said he will run for re-election next year. after months of dodging all the allegations ford admitted his drug abuse was a year ago during what he called a drunken stupor. it comes days after investigators recovered a video that shows him smoking a crack pipe. and the oldest woman to run in sunday's north city marathon has died sadly enough. 86-year-old joy johnson passed away in her sleep, the day after crossing the finish line. sad, sweet. she was up there. but she had stumbled and hit her head around the 20 mile marker but managed to finish the race. amazing. >> wow. >> it was johnson's 25th time
2:09 am
that she completed the marathon. >> amazing. there's evidence that syria could still have a secret cache the chemical weapons even after the government's promised destruction effort is now carried out pentagon correspondent barbara starr has all the details. >> cnn has learned there is new classified intelligence showing that bashar al assad might not be willing to declare and destroy his entire chemical weapons stockpile, something he has promised to do. several u.s. officials telling cnn there have been some recent pieces of intelligence that are raising concerns. one official is saying to me, quote, there are various threats of information that would shake our confidence. he goes on to say they've done things recently that suggest syria is not ready to get rid of their chemical weapons. why would syria be doing this even though it's made the promise to get rid of it all? well, the u.s. believes israel might be one reason with israeli
2:10 am
nuclear wednesday next door, al assad feels he needs a hedge against a potential israeli threat. and he may just hold onto some of what he has. the u.s. is not saying specifically what the intelligence is, but it's well-known that u.s. satellites fly over syria routinely, gathering information and taking a look at whatever they can see. barbara starr, cnn, the pentagon. >> all right, thank you, barbara. it's been a rough six weeks for a north carolina family that lost everything in a house fire. the toards home was destroyed by a fire late september. the two family dogs were killed as well. 8-year-old zane pollard turned out to be a hero that day waking up his mop when he smelled smoker. now, he's being rewarded for his heroism. local police officers surprising the pollards with a new pet. a full-blooded american bulldog. we're told zane and thumper hit

the lovely and talented john berman. 28 minutes past the hour. election day 2013 is history now. here's a look at results of pivotal races and initiatives across the nation. martin walsh nearly edged out democrat john conley to become boston new mayor, he takes over for outgoing mayor thomas menino. voters in six of 11 colorado counties voting down a proposal to secede from the state. results are being tallied in the remaining five counties. in maine portland voters gave a thumbs up for legalalized marijuana. for more nationwide results here's cnn's political director mark preston live in washington. mark, we're not going to let you sleep for now. what's interesting out of last night's elections with the ballot initiatives? >> you know, miguel, we've been
2:30 am
talking all morning about chris christie and terry mcauliffe winning the election respectively. but it's the ballot issues that are interesting. we've seen in houston, for instance, that money that would go towards converting the astrodome into a convention center failed. it did not go down. the houston astrodome, an iconic sports arena, which, miguel, i'm sure you remember, was a key venue for the bad news bears when they went to play. back then, but then really, in ways and in a more serious note, we saw out in california, some valid initiatives that were very important. you mentioned one of them in regards to secession. when we saw 11 counties in colorado who decided to secede from the state. it's fool hardlhardy. it's never going to happen. it will not be the 51st state.
2:31 am
it goes to show you the anger that we see across the country. we also a marijuana tax being implemented in colorado, 25%. marijuana certainly going into the mainstream. >> marijuana on the ballots in a lot of places these days. the colorado thing was interesting. it got a lot of press attention. it was never really a serious, you know, undertaking on their part. because it never would have -- even if it had passed, it wouldn't have gone forward. but what does it say about colorado and whether or not it's becoming more and more blue, as we know it is? but is it bluer than we thought it was? >> it certainly is. we saw president obama win it back in 2008 which was a big victory for him and key to going on and winning the general election. colorado is a state that certain parts are very liberal and many parts conservative. it's indicative of the divide in the country.
2:32 am
and when you see certain county trying to secede or put measures on the ballot to allow them to secede, it goes to show you how frustrated people. are. certainly in colorado, they were over gun rights and the cost of energy. a very local issue. those folks were upset by the cost of having to use renewable energy. they thought it was more expensive. >> i'm surprised this one didn't pass. another interesting one, washington state, voters are faced with genetically modified foods. this going to pass? >> ballots are still counted if postmarked on the 5th. but as of late last night, into early this morning, it was losing this was tens of millions of dollars spent by opponents and proponents of having to put these labels on food. i will tell you opponents didn't like the idea because they said it would drive up food prices. they put a lot of money into
2:33 am
this. this is the same initiative that failed in california, in your home state, just last year, but expected to continue to move forward over the battle over food safety continues. >> they've been pushing this. it's an interesting issue. it surprises me it has failed again. i would have suspected that might have gone forward. mark preston, thank you. >> when you think of the expense of that label over genetically modified foods. >> very passionate on that as well. 33 minutes past the hour. chris christie is going back to the governor's re-election after romping through the election. win sends him to the front of the pack of contenders with republicans in 2016. according to the polls, christie nabbed some typically democrat voters like women, hispanics and the young. which could put him in a prime spot with gop leaders. >> maybe. interesting. celebrations in illinois
2:34 am
this morning after an historic vote by lawmakers giving the green light for gay marriage. after a year of intense lobbying by both sides, the state is now the 15th in the nation to legalize same-sex marriage. president obama applauded the move in his home state saying our journey as a nation is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under lot for if we are truly created equal then surely the love we commit to one another must equal as well. mcginnis is joins us live. what are you tracking this morning? >> i'm tracking the fact that in the northeast, you're going to see the rain start to move on in. things are going to be a little more tricky as far as travel on the i-95 corridor. this morning, temperatures in the 40s. monday, you may remember, only in the 20s and 30s across the northeast. then we saw 30s yesterday.
2:35 am
now we've got 40s this morning. here's the problem, very vigorous but fast-moving weather system ejects across the great plains and into the midwest. we'll expect heavy rain ahead of it. most of that across the ohio river valley and into the eastern great lakes. temperaturewise, you're not even going to be average. for this afternoon, yes. new york city, temperatures right around 63 degrees. but you go in towards the end of the work week, temperatures only in the 50s. and for chicago, temperatures below normal there. also for boston, what are we looking at? rainwise? well, between 1 and 2 inches up and down that frontal system from the great lakes to the gulf coast. but in new york city, you could see on the order of about half an hour, maybe an inch of wet weather. >> looking for a personal forecast, miguel is heading out at 6:00 p.m. to los angeles. >> what may i get? >> today? you're leaving today? >> i am.
2:36 am
>> take care. michelle knight, one of the so-called cleveland three is reveal for the first time the horrors inside of airal castro's home. more on the shocking details from the interview. >> reporter: the interview is so powerful it's uncomfortable. michelle knight's words don't just tell us, they take us inside the torture rooms of a cleveland home. knight is the first victim to talk in detail in the aftermath of a multiple kidnapping case that has horrified and spell bound a nation. talking to tv psychologist dr. phil. >> he already had a setup to where he could tie me to i think it's like a clothesline. >> reporter: knight was kidnapped by ariel castro in 2002 and wouldn't go free for 11 years. >> he tied me up to a pole with
2:37 am
chains wrapped around it. the chains are so big, he wraps it around my neck. he sits me down on the floor, and he says, is this where you're going to stay until i can trust you. now if i do it too tight and you don't make it, that means you wasn't meant to stay here. that means god wants to take you. >> reporter: she was chained, starved and left naked in a frigid, dark basement for days. then same the sexual abuse. when she eventually became pregnant, knight described how castro beat her into a miscarriage. >> i was standing up and he punched me with a barbell. he took the round part and he went like this, and he made it go up so it hit the lower area of my stomach. i fell to the floor. >> reporter: knight said castro would show leniency once giving her a puppy.
2:38 am
and it ended when the dog snapped at him and he killed him before her very eyes. >> he picked him up, grabbed his neck, all i heard was a yelp and he was gone. >> reporter: the torture went on and on. one day, knight realized he was no longer gone. meeting a girl she realize had gone missing. >> sometimes, she would cry. i'd tell her everything would be okay. and we weren't able to get home. we'd just have to wait it out. >> reporter: it was just the beginning. martin savidge, cnn, atlanta. >> oh, dear, dear, dear. coming up, after nearly a decade behind bars, a missouri man finds out his murder conviction has been overturned. and over 1,000 priceless works of the art looted by the nazis turning up in a man's apartment in germany. avo: the volkswagen "sign then drive"

welcome back to "early start." 41 manipulainutes past the hour. it's a stunning find that has rocked the article word. one of thousands of piece of looted by the nazis have turned up in germany. cnn's jim bittermann is polling that story. >> reporter: the treasure trove was found in an apartment building in a quiet munich apartment building in the apartment of corneliius gurlitt, investigators found 1400 pieces of art by marc chagall, max liebermann and many others. many were what the nazis branded degenerative art and confiscated from jewish owners. others may have been sold by a fraction from families fleeing the nazi regime.
2:43 am
gurlitt's father may have worked for the nats dis. and his son is said to have taken over the collection in '50s. a prosecutor said it was a stunning discovery. >> translator: the accused was searched by officials. here 121 framed and 1,285 unframed pictures were confiscated. some of them by max liebermann and others. because of the immense idealistic value of the paintings, we have found clues that this find could be called degenerative art. >> reporter: authorities assisted by art historians have been working for more than a year trying to find the origins of the art. they say gurlitt was being investigated after carrying large amounts of cash back. the case is highly complicated and all the questions of ownership are not answered. >> reporter: after an investigative report by a german
2:44 am
news magazine, prosecutors finally went public with the story. reporters say it was impossible to talk with gurlitt. and little is known about it. >> i think he's a curious man, totally isolated. >> totally reclusive? >> totally reclusive, living with his pictures and perhaps these pictures, i think, dominated his whole life. >> reporter: cornelius gurlitt's name is still on the buzzer here where he kept the fabulous art collection. he's virtually unknown to his neighbors. he hasn't been seen for months. unknown for the authorities. and anot on any tax rolls. no charges have been filed against gurlitt. he's not under arrest and prosecutors say it's not clear what laws if any have been violated. but the discovery in the fifth floor apartment almost undoubtedly answer the question who owns those.
