[cheers] world champion. damage. brian: a lot of cheering going on and a lot of, i guess long face depend on how are pulling for if you are an astros fan or if you are a democrat. so much went to the production' way last night i will read the script now. virginia stunning the nation this morning as fox news projects republican glenn youngkin will be the next governor of virginia. steve: incredible upset serving as a stern warning for democrats in a state virginia that president biden won by 10 points just a year ago. >> we're empowered by a conviction, a righteous conviction in our children's future. >> let's reinvigorate this
3:02 am
amazing commonwealth of virginia. >> we are also keeping an eye on the too close to call governor's race in new jersey. neck in neck there where republican jack ciattarelli. ainsley: so far outperformed expectations in his bid to unseat governor phil murphy. griff jenkins is live at the virginia capitol. hey, griff. >> hey, ainsley, brian, and steve. good morning, it appears a red wave may be sweeping into the capitol behind me here in richmond. that red wave led by glenn youngkin becoming the first g.o.p. governor elected since 2009 defeating tear mcauliffe by 2 points. go to the race board and show it to you. fox news has it at 50.2022 youngkin to 48.6 for mcauliffe. youngkin as you mentioned, steve, came back just a month ago.
3:03 am
mcauliffe was trawnsing him he surged among other things on the issue of education and putting parents in the driver's seat. something that he hit on last night at his victory speech. listen. >> we're going to introduce choice within our public school system. [cheers and applause] we're going to embrace our parents, not ignore them. [cheers and applause] griff: fox also has the lieutenant governor g.o.p. candidate winsome sears. if she wins she will become the first black woman elected to statewide office. she is jamaican born a former marine. she basement first black woman elected to the house of delegates in 2002. here is some of what she said last night at her victory party. >> what you are looking at is the american dream. it's a historic night yes it is. i didn't run to make history.
3:04 am
i just wanted to leave it better than i found it. [cheers and applause] >> and, guys, history may not stop there fox also has the attorney general candidate jason leading. if he wins, he will become the first hispanic elected to statewide office. now, as we have said. fox has him leading. fox has not called the race for them. those races are very close here in the state of virginia. there is a recount rule if a candidate is losing by no more than 1%. of the losing candidate can call a recount. we will see where that goes. buff, one thing that we're also watching is six g.o.p. house delegate races. if they all win and they're leading right now, it will flip the house of delegates back to the republicans so a massive change here possibly happening at the state capitol. meanwhile mcauliffe campaign tying youngkin to former president donald trump. it vice president harris came to
3:05 am
the commonwealth said what happens here in virginia will be a bellwether for what happens next november. well, one thing is for sure, democrats had better take note because the playbook to victory lies in glenn youngkin's pocket and we are already seeing a little bit of push back on the democrat side. a group called the progressive be change campaign putting out a statement saying that democrats can't win with backward trump messaging. we will see where it goes. no doubt a very, very significant event hang here in virginia. brian, ainsley, steve? steve: no kidding, griff, thank you very much. i'm looking at the politico app. right now. the top story is democrats' nightmare, republicans resurgence. and the second story is shocker in new jersey: governor's race a nail biter where phil murphy the incumbent democrat hoping to become the first democrat to win back-to-back terms. the chit relevantly is leading
3:06 am
by 1100 votes at this point. ainsley: incredible. what is that about? you live in new jersey. brian: i think the covid virus. people give murphy it business owners we talked to sitting there ruthlessly shutting them down and getting them. ainsley: against the vaccine mandates. steve: main thing for ciattarelli new jersey has high taxes. you see with where jack ciattarelli slightly ahead i think it's 1100 votes. ainsley: more money in pocketbook or wallet if he wins. steve: in new jersey, there are a million more democrats than republicans. so this number is extraordinary. however, there are also a million independents. and so the people have been looking at the message and the message locally in new jersey has been just like in virginia, i can't tell you how many times somebody running for school board has come and knocked on my door and said do you know what they're teaching in the schools? i think part of the message
3:07 am
intended for virginia seeped into new jersey and that's why jack ciattarelli right now is leading. still too close to call. ainsley: referendum on biden because people are remembering what happened in afghanistan when the open borders, paying illegal immigrants a million dollars for a mom and a daughter. steve: phil murphy kept mentioning trump, trump, trump which is what mcauliffe did. ainsley: that is not a winner. people are not for crt, what's being taught in the classrooms. this really was a vote about suburban moms and dads. their voices were heard by certain candidates. they went out and pulled out all these stops to get these candidates elected. brian: in new jersey republican pockets they might have flipped two major counties red to blue. murphy wanted to use this win to run for president. man, chris christie was on yesterday about 23 hours ago and said keep your eye on this race because chit refusally is closing in.
3:08 am
listen. >> no democrat has been reelected governor in 44 years in new jersey. during that time three republicans were elected. you think about what he has done in the last month. most of the major polls had this race at about 15 points a month ago. and now this race is within the margin of error. if the republican voters turn out and if jack is able to win about 60% of independents, what we did in 2009, then jack ciattarelli is going to be the next governor of new jersey. this is going to send an earthquake politically around the country. brian: i think the race board shows 88% of the precincts are reporting. roughly they say the precincts that have not reported yet are more democrat than republican, but we will see. there is nothing format i can about what has happened so far
3:09 am
in major races. i think people like you said are fed up with the direction the country is heading and these aren't natural disasters. these are man made joe biden disasters democratic sphblats showed up. brorge, stacey abrams, kamala harris, joe biden, jill biden they all lose because they thought they saved the day. ainsley: parents are saying they are more of the same of what we already have. we don't want that. we want to go in a different direction. when i was in virginia they said we want a fresh face and we love what he stands for when they were talking about youngkin. he promises to embrace parents not ignoring them. excellence in schools. cut gases on tax retirement. fund law enforcement. keep communities safe. cut taxes on retirement income for veterans. higher salaries and better equipment for them. ban crt and opposes mask and vaccine mandates. steve: if the youngkin wins the
3:10 am
two warring factions of the republican party are both going to declare victory. never trump errs are going to say a republican candidate can win without trump. and then trump supporters will say that donald trump dragged dunkin' over the line. ultimately donald trump did take credit for it he put out a statement yesterday he said would like to thank his base for coming out in force and voting for glenn youngkin. ainsley: his base did help. the independents, the ones that haven't decided yet there were a lot of democrats that voted for youngkin as well. steve: speaking of democrats, we are in new york city, which is a very blue city and a former police officer eric adams has been elected the 110th mayor of new york city. one of the main parts of his campaign appeal was i'm a former cop. i'm not for defunding the police. i'm for law and order. and that helped him cross the line. ainsley: when you look at race, we geraldo a lot about race in
3:11 am
these elections. eric adams is the second black mayor in new york city. michelle woo is the first female asian-american mayor to win in boston. when you look at virginia. wins some serious she is leading according to the a.p. they haven't called it yet. she could be the lieutenant governor of virginia. first woman of color lieutenant governor. you will interview her this morning. her father was an immigrant jamaica. first latino a.g. in virginia is leading as well. brian: yeah. eric adams when he got the nomination on the democratic side, he really won the seat. what is he going to do is he has got a lot of hills to climb. the good news for him is he is replacing the worst, most disinterested ineffective mayor in new york history. when he goes out there, he has a shot at making himself a national figure because he is saying even though he was a big critic of the cops when he was a police officer, he is saying i understand law and order. the need to rid our streets of
3:12 am
crime. he also i talked to mayor bloomberg at that al smith dinner and evidently mayor bloomberg set up mayors conferences. he has been in constant contact. whatever you think of mayor bloomberg, he was organized. evidences had a mission in new york. one thing about this city. it was running. you might not agree with it he knew how to do the job. he said adams has been great student and he is looking to jump right. in i don't think he wants to necessarily alienate republicans. it might be the formula that joe manchin formula for democrats. yeah, i'm democrat but i'm not unreasonable. i'm not nancy pelosi or a.o.c. ainsley: i think the main reason he won is because of law enforcement background. i live in the city. all of my friends are worried about crime. steve: it's sad. ainsley: exactly. people being jumped for no reason. did you go into the subwaist people are avoiding the subways. traffic is worse because of that de blasio put in all these bike lanes made traffic in the city
3:13 am
worse. he. steve: very complicated. brian: can we say one other thing about minnesota. voted down reimagining police movement. 57 percent said leave the cops as they are. which is a good sign in america. steve: they are going to need plenty of cops in atlanta for the big parade. ainsley: whoa. that was not atlanta. steve: they will need a lot of cops in atlanta for the big parade. last night the atlanta braves won the world series in houston, which is delicious irony given the fact that major league baseball took away the all-star game from atlanta. they had to win on the road but that is where, look at that right there, that is where minute maid park is in whitney houston a retractible roof i understand. no dome but retractible roof. lawrence jones is there lawrence, it was a big night for atlanta and braves fans everywhere. lawrence: that's exactly right. good morning, family. let's talk about that roof. the astros hoped that if they kept the roof open because they this some success, that it would
3:14 am
help then in this game. well, the braves just weren't having it what a comeback after a tumultuous year, the first time since 1995 that they won it all. such raw emotions last night. i had the opportunity to talk ton solve the players. we will show you a little bit of that footage later on in the show. guys, a big moment for atlanta. injuries, having the all-star game game canceled it was just a moment for them. steve: ultimately atlanta on top. but, you know, houston did great job, too. it was a great season to remember. lawrence, a great coverage this morning. we will hear from some of the fans a little later on here in the telecast. thank you, sir. ainsley: celebration today. brian: everybody was talking about the giants. everybody was talking about the dodgers, talking about the mets leading the division the longest time without winning the division and atlanta wins the division and takes the championship. ainsley: if you are a republican and braves fan if you are waking up in atlanta happy this morning.
3:15 am
brian: a lot to discuss. we just scratched the surface i'm glad you let us scratch it. while containers forced to sit. guess who is feasting on it. thieves taking the advantage. new crime spike fueled by the supply chain crisis. ainsley: inflation is surging and americans are paying more for everyday needs. president biden says things are only getting better ♪ you know i'm here for the party ♪ i ain't leaving until they throw me out ♪ going to have a little fun ♪ you know, i'm here ♪ i'm here for the s party

facebook putting end to facial recognition technology the company now known as meta will delete 1 billion facial face prints and no longer auto recognize friends in pictures and videos. facial recognition can be helpful but needs to be weighed against growing concerns about the use ever the technology as a whole. so now you are going to have to remember your passwords, guys. ainsley: i love the facial recognition. brian: i know. steve: it's easy. ainsley: you know they're watching us all the time. steve: seeing all of our faces and now they are gone. carley: so they say. ainsley: it is called facebook shouldn't it be about faces. brian: used to be now it's about meta. steve: according to that movie it was who are those people in my class. talk about the story before the facebook story. that was carley said they cannot guard all these shipping containers that they take off
3:22 am
the container ship thievery is up had 40% which is extraordinary. keep in mind, we are having enough trouble with the supply chain stuff because china is turning off the electricity because of the coal problems out there. that means their plants are not running two or three days a week. that means less stuff. but then it gets here and they can't take it off the ships. shipping container ceo said we are building more ships and the good news is the ships will be ready by 2023. ainsley: if you don't get your items, we thought originally it was because they were on these barges. but now it could be because they are in someone's car who is running away with your stuff. steve: car go. brian: china didn't show up at the green conference. trying to get a little bit greener and now running out of energy building more coal plants faster than we can mine coal. if anyone wants to clean up the earth from our perspective, it doesn't really matter as long as china is dirtying up the planet
3:23 am
and doesn't show up for conferences. don't worry will decrease by 2060. the president of the united states did call out china from glasgow with 400 private jets and a caravan up to 80 plus cars wherever he went. and then he had a painful press conference where he tried to answer some questions about the most pressing issues in our country. first and foremost the economy. and inflation. so why not, if you don't have good answers, make them up. case in point, watch. >> the significant reason why prices are up is because of covid affecting the supply chain. look at this coming thanksgiving, you know, we are in a situation where we find that, um, we are in a very different circumstance. last thanksgiving, um, you know, i -- as i said, this year we are working on supply chain issues. last thanksgiving i sat down with my wife, my daughter, and
3:24 am
my son-in-law. this thanksgiving we'll are all in very different circumstance. >> things of are a hell of a lot better and the wages have gone up higher -- faster than inflation. and we have generated real economic growth. brian: brian i'm glad. ainsley: look at your own situation. have your wages gone up more than inflation have? wages have gone up 0.06% in september. stats show inflation has gone up 5.4% in september. that prohibits the american worker from reaping the benefit of higher wages. brian: that's not true. ainsley: it's false. steve: it could be true for some but not for all. brian: not for the country as a whole. ainsley: for the average american. steve: he was comparing lock down covid thanksgiving 2020 with our thanksgiving 2021. the headline there is there is a vaccine and people can co-mingle according to everybody now. but the headline is that everything that you buy for your table on thanksgiving is going
3:25 am
to cost a lot more. i thought cnn must have killed them. they actually did a story how this could be like a record price for your thanksgiving dinner. which goes to show why the number one issue in virginia, according to the polling, was the economy. and it wasn't even close. ever time people go to the grocery store go. somewhere to buy something. especially was gasoline, it just hurts. and joe biden said two weeks ago, he said yeah, regarding gas, there is nothing i can do in the short-term. ainsley: yesterday when you all were talking about the 400 -- who were reinterviewing the 400 private planes being used to go to the climate summit. brian: that was jeff bezos led a cadre 400 private jets. ainsley: knows moms and dads in virginia they said oh, they don't care. they are such hypocrites. they are at a climate summit. they can get their private jets they are going to use them.
3:26 am
brian: it's a joke. measures were asked what do you think of the economy. only 35 percent said they like the way things are going. 65 percent said is there another question there? i'm not happy. 64% also went on to say they believe the country is heading in the wrong direction. that is why in the last 10 months this president has presided over cataclysmic downfall of this country. almost everything he does was preventable. this is not natural disasters. keep in mind when it comes to the coronavirus, when it comes to cases in death. they ever higher than last year at this time. steve: that is why there in the oval office there is a big red warning light flashing right now after what happened in virginia with the republican winning. and with new jersey, where the republican currently is leading the incumbent democrat, democrats all across the country are going hey, wait a minute, regarding joe biden's agenda and those two bills, if we pass them, are we going to cook our own goose? brian: right. ainsley: do you think democrats will take what happened yesterday and learn from it or
3:27 am
will they continue to push this progressive agenda. brian: what are they learning? to pass the spending bill or not to. depends on what they want to glean from it. ainsley: learned parents want to be involved in kids' education. crt is not welcome in the classroom. we are all equal under the eyes of god. we should get jobs based on how well we are qualified. how well we do if we're qualified instead of other factors. brian: spending palooza should we pass it or not? steve: it's up to the democrats as they decide whether or not to pass it out of the house and what's it going to do in the senate and ultimately is it too expensive for america because today america is deciding. meanwhile, we're coming up on 6:30 here in the east. education taking the spotlight as republican glenn youngkin declared victory in the commonwealth of virginia. up next, why parents in his state say his win should send a clear a message to the democrats we were just talking about.

again a big, big night. a big take away from last night. it appears that joe biden mattered a lot more that donald trump. it mcauliffe his campaign on tying youngkin to trump that didn't win. another take away is when vice president harris went down to norfolk on friday and said what happens here is going to matter in 2022. well, democrats may want to go back to the drawing board and analyze exactly how they were so strongly defeated tonight. now you guys have winsome sears coming up here in about half an hour it will be very interesting to see what she says about what made the difference for her. brian, ainsley and steve? steve: griff, i have a quick other take away for you and that is both joe biden and terry mcauliffe made fun of glenn youngkin's fleece vest. who is laughing now?
4:05 am
griff: that's a good point we are in virginia. fleece vest are very vogue and stylish and still will be a decade from now. ainsley: really smart of them appeals to the suburban dad. my dad loves a fleece vest is he in almost one every day. steve: not a whole coat. ainsley: warm but arms have -- like when you sleep in the bed and you put one leg out. steve: when you have your foot sticking out from the covers. that's a fleece vest. brian: i remember i renewed my "time" magazine subscription and i got complimentary vest first ever a little big. ainsley: what's the other commercial has all the pockets in it. brian: the scottevest. i couldn't get my ipad out of my back one time. let me tell you what happened last night. so many differential elements to this. everyone says well, a state vote is a state vote and that's it. i think very few people look at this think this was just about
4:06 am
virginia. will. ainsley: happening in new jersey. brian: one thing bring out huge risk and bad obviously tactic for mcauliffe to bring out the former president barack obama. stacey abrams who was the rock star of georgia to bring out jill biden to ask kamala harris to cut a tape and go 300 churches. ainsley: help him more than it hurt him. brian: people of virginia at this point in time to be about virginia. you may not like me look how popular my friends are. and in the end now they all lose. they go down with mcauliffe. and actually president obama worked in new jersey and, man, that didn't help. ainsley: also about the issues. down in virginia so worried about what's happening in their schools. i think this is a referendum on biden and on progressive movement and on crt. i think that all these suburban parents are speaking out. they're getting involved for the first time. these are parents that never really were involved in school board issues. not involved in politics at all.
4:07 am
and they might have voted one party or the other based on their families, but this was about the issues. steve: right. and for the parents who lived through the pandemic where the kids were at home, they looked over their shoulders for a year and they said okay, wait a minute, what are you learning? and then they say hey, what are you teaching them? and it's like we are not teaching them that. they said i saw it with my own two eyes. according to the exit polling in virginia. number one issue by a long ways was the economy followed by coronavirus and then, of course, education. when you look at how terry mcauliffe nationalized this by bringing in democratic all stars which clearly backfired people want the to talk about the local issues. for the most part glenn youngkin kept donald trump arms length through the campaign. what's interesting when you look at "the washington post" this morning, in the reddest part of virginia, way out in southwest virginia about where lawrence was yesterday out in roanoke,
4:08 am
coal country, glenn youngkin actually got a higher percentage of the vote than donald trump did in 2020 because he made it about the issues of interest to people in the commonwealth of virginia. ainsley: a lot of folks that we interviewed yesterday. steve: look at the map right there the blue are the terry mcauliffe counties, and up in the extreme northeast, that is where the virginia, those are the suburbs just outside of washington, d.c. fairfax and loudoun county. ainsley: we also interviewed a lot of people that this h. migrated into our country. they are citizens, they're able to vote here. they said they are so fearful that for the direction of our country, they don't want our country to end up like theirs, the countries that they were fleeing from. earlier on the show morning. we interviewed two of those individuals, two parents in loudoun county or in fairfax, virginia. one is xi van fleet and the other is asra nomani. listen to their story. >> as a person never involved in political campaign, i worked so
4:09 am
hard for youngkin's campaign. yesterday i stood in cold wind for nine hours handing out ballots. i did it because i believe in youngkin. um -- i'm sorry. ainsley: that's okay. >> for me, this race between youngkin and mck4r5u6 is a race between american ideal and marxist ideology. >> this was a referendum on parents. and this entire ridiculous woke ideology that has sweeped into our school system. i'm an immigrant muslim liberal democrat, and i voted for glenn youngkin because glenn youngkin actually did something that so many politicians and policy makers have done and that is honored parents. brian: those are some of ainsley's interview from earlier that talked about some of the impact. i think it's pretty cool, too,
4:10 am
on sunday nbc had a poll and probably outraged by the results it didn't run for them it turns out of the republicans have a double digital lead when it comes to who do you favor in terms of border security? no kidding, inflation to handle that the economy, national security, and getting things done. overwhelmingly double digital advantage for republicans, the party that just barely lost the senate, closed the gap in the house but lost the white house, one year ago. so it's a pretty remarkable transformation. but i also think to drill down on what barack obama said when he came. instead of acknowledging that there were issues with schools and we should look at them, he called it a trumped up culture war where president biden came, had a 60 minute speech. he mentioned trump dozens of times. nobody really thinks donald trump had anything to do with it. and when mcauliffe said instead of crt here's how i would change it. he said it didn't exist. he also said parents have no role in education. that the teachers faces are too white and then, of course,
4:11 am
linking trump and charlottesville together fell flat. he never adjusted which is astounding. because this guy was a strategist getting other people elected, he couldn't handle a re-election for the most part because he won the first time in a state that he was supposed to have known so well. steve: terry mcauliffe was establishment candidate. he has been establishment candidate and politician his entire career. with quite understandably the establishment media when it was quite clear that republican in the fleece vest was going to win well, did they like this it? pow be the judge. >> when this election is over in virginia we will know we seen the emergent of delta variant of trumpism. same disease spreads a lot faster and get a lot more places. >> the exit poll shows interesting that the coronavirus or that the virus was low importance to many voters. >> fascinating. >> education which is code for white parents don't like the
4:12 am
idea of teaching about race. >> he flew an unresurrection flag at his rallies. he played dumb at a zoom rally. he did not really put much distance between himself and donald trump on the big lie or the deadly insurrection. >> the announcement that joe biden will not be happy to hear and that also shows how incredibly divided this country is. >> steve: so last night was a wake-up call. "the washington post" talked to a couple of current operatives. for democrats, the historic virginia turnout, which was over 3 million, which is bigger than it's ever been in goob toler race. the historic voter turnout showed alarmingly high enthusiasm in conservative strong holds and a shift in the kind of suburban areas that powered the democrats to win in 2018 and 2020. it shows the republicans got the suburban independents to vote for republicans. it's the independents who you have got to get on your side.
4:13 am
suddenly after it being billy blue for a long time, virginia is a swing state. ainsley: i wonder how many teachers in virginia supported youngkin. he was speaking out about higher wages. more special ed. he wants to build more of these charter schools. he says i'm going to have 20 more charter schools. steve: terry mcauliffe said glenn youngkin was going to fire like 40,000 teachers which was not true. ainsley: as far as the military is concerned cut taxes on retirement income for veterans. higher salaries for them. better equipment for them. ban crt opposing the mask mandates and vaccine mandates. brian: he won't embarrass the nation by pulling out of afghanistan the way he did. just real quick because i know carley shimkus has a temper if we don't toss to her right away. joy reid called white parentsehn schools. andrea mitchell says youngkin textbook case of dishonored culture warrior got him victory.
4:14 am
dishonest? it was parents speaking at a school board. that's unbelievable to me. ainsley: joy reid's point the parents we talked to in virginia they are all for teaching history but they just don't want their children and they pulled out some of the books that actually showed us, showed them to us that said you basically need to apologize if you are a certain color. steve and the other big news story aside from the world series, is that the fact that in new jersey, according to the a.p., the republican is still leading by 1100 votes. and if he were to win, you know, people have said if glenn youngkin wins it's going to be an earthquake. a global tsunami if jack chited really wins and he is leading rights now. but there are still a lot more votes. ainsley: do we know when that race will be called? steve: up to close to 90% of the precincts reporting. brian: the three of you was will decide when it's over. steve: we rely upon the

4:34 am
people, that the progressives in the democratic party have pulled the nation toward the left and yesterday what happened is n. virginia was essentially saying, hold on. we don't want to go that far to the left. >> actually, what happens in washington serves us greatly in virginia. as you know, nato is hawnked in virginia as well as we have the largest naval base in the world. pentagon in virginia. glenn youngkin as the commander-in-chief as governor would be also commander-in-chief of the virginia national guard. so and i would be his second. so we're concerned. but, i think what has happened with the progressives is that they have pitted all of us against each other so that they can swoop in and be our political savior. and we are saying that, you know, we have to be one virginia. i have one many lieutenant

5:02 am
polls indicated that youngkin would win, but it was going to be close. turns out, not so close. >> reporter: yeah, you know, steve the, ainsley and brian. we've got a leaf blower out here at the state capitol making way for that red wave led by political newcomer glenn youngkin who had a simple message, steve the, which was parents matter. let's show you the exact numbers. youngkin beating former democratic governor terry mcauliffe 50.7 to 48.6. youngkin won on the issue of education, and he hit on it last night. listen. >> we're going to introduce choice within our public school system. [cheers and applause] we're going to embrace our parents, not ignore them. >> reporter: fox also has gop if candidate for the lieutenant the governor leading, if she wins, she becomes the first black woman elected to statewide office, an achievement not lost on her in last night's speech.

5:05 am
not legitimate and wages are rising and we're a victim of our own success. no one's buying that. but putting it all together, it started with afghanistan. no one could believe the president of the united states would leave americans behind, and guess what? they're still there. and the word is in the white house don't bring up afghanistan. he doesn't want to hear about it. that's not leadership. and it doesn't matter if you're democrat or republican, especially when it can comes to virginia, they're so military-oriented -- ainsley: yeah. and when youngkin says to the military point he wants to cut taxes on the retirement incomes for our veterans, that's a winning message. when he tells the parents i will listen to you, we're going to ban crt, that is a winning message. when he says he's going to cut taxes on gas and retirement, that's a winning message. he says he's going to fund law enforcement can if keep communities safe. he says that he opposes the mask and the vax mandates. those are winning messages for many people who are ready to see
5:06 am
their kids go back to the classroom without masks. steve: sure. and when you look at all the democratic all-stars who came out for terry mcauliffe, you know, a who's who of the democratic party. but what they did was they nationalized the election. to your point, ainsley, it's about bread and butter, local issues. it's about my school, taxes, how much i pay for gas. they brought those democrats in and ultimately, you know, as kamala harris said, as virginia goes, so goes next year and two years after that. it looks like the first african-american woman elected to be lieutenant governor in the commonwealth of virginia along with glenn youngkin at the top of the ticket. you have to vote for them separately. we asked her about 45 minutes ago, how'd they win in. >> i think what has happened with the progressives is they have pitted all of us against each other so that they can swoop in and be to our political savior, and we are saying that, you know, we have to be one
5:07 am
virginia. i have won hi race as lieutenant governor, ask is i'm not going to be representing republicans solely, no. i'm representing republicans, libertarians, green party, reform party, democrats, everybody. we were talking about the bread and butter issues. we're talking about parents who want to have a save and should have a shay ask by -- say and by right have a say. ainsley: and the she does win and the a.g. wins, they will have a why not governor, they will have a black lieutenant governor, and they will have a latino a.g. brian: right, and they're all republicans. i just love some of these headlines from these op-eds. one is terry mcauliffe wet on voters hating trump, turns out they hate democrats more. another one is why can't we beat these guys? yeah. and 64% of the country say we're heading in the wrong direction. that makes people search for something else. to glenn youngkin's credit, the guy, for a rookie politician
5:08 am
the, man, did he adapt well. i'm looking at him now i and even last night. usually these guys look ragged at the end, he looks like today is the first day the of his campaign. steve: he went out and shot some hoops -- ainsley: he played basketball at the university. he's 6-6. steve: he's a tall guy, and he's the new governor. meanwhile, in other races it's another shock to democrats as they wake up this morning, another brutal blow for joe biden, and that is in the state of virginia -- the champion wealth, in the state of new jersey across the river. right now jack ciattarelli, who was trailing 8 points according to the late olds as -- polls as of two days ago, phil murphy, they're neck ask neck. actually, mr. ciattarelli is leading by about 1,000 point according to the associated press. i didn't see a single yard sign for if phil murphy, but i saw a lot of jack signs. and in new jersey there are a
5:09 am
million more democrats than republicans. so for him to all this off, obviously, he was able to appeal to the suburban independents. brian: did you see the race board again? because it changed. now we're up to 88%. look at this, ciattarelli's opened up even more, and the theory was that some of the reported districts were not republican-friendly. but nothing seems to be the same. i think he flipped two separate counties. so he's got about a 200-vote lead. ainsley: he tried to say that murphy was out of touch, his leadership during covid, and he ran really on taxes. taxes are so high in new jersey. steve: tell he about it. iowans yeah, you know. and he ran saying he's opposed to the mask and vaccine mandates. and you saw it, remember our coverage during the pandemic when they were trying to reopen and they shut the water off and
5:10 am
did not side with them. steve there were also a couple of valid questions here in new york that are very interesting. during the pandemic they had to change a lot of the voting rules for a variety of reasons. well, this new york one of the -- in new york one of the questions was should we headache changes to redistricting, and republicans said that's just going to open up the various districts for gerrymandering. 61% said, no, don't change redistricting. should you allow the the legislature to pass same-day voter registration? it had been 10 days. you know what? the voters said, no, we don't want to change that. and should they allow the legislature to pass, no excuse, absentee voting where you could send votes to everybody to fill out. once again a majority, 61 of new yorkers -- 61% of new yorkers, said no. so regarding how you vote, voted down this new york. ainsley: democrats outthurm republicans 6 to 1, and our new
5:11 am
mayor is eric adams, and his picture's on the front page of the new york ohs, and he got the majority of the votes. with defunding the police a billion dollars, mayor bill de blasio defunded a billion dollars. and people are really worried about their safety in this city. brian: i've got to give curtis sliwa saying de blasio's been bad for if new york, i'm going to do everything to help eric adams. when he was an officer in the police force, he was a big critic of the, this ypd, and some people are wary of him. but to tell you the truth, new yorkers are depending on him because his message has been pitch perfect. he says i'm going to reestablish the anti-crime unit. he's saying, hey, new yorkers, come back from f. i'm going to do your best to lower your taxes. we've got to stop making wall street the wall street higher-ups pay a price for staying here. we've got to make it a place to
5:12 am
be able to walk the streets and it's safe for tourism. i mean, this is the message. the message for the democrats is the adams message if that was going to win this new york. it is i'm on the left but not way on the left. if the democratic party stays with the aocs and the squad, they're going to be a micro-party. adams is showing you the way, and if he does half of what he says he does, he's going to look hike a hero because he's replacing the most inept, ineffective mayor in history. steve: well, his message was i'm a former cop. out in the twin cities voters rejected after the last year given george floyd, there is a move to replace the police department with a new office of public safety or something like that. that was voted down. and -- brian: a bunch of hall monitors. steve: it turns out it was a generational divide.
5:13 am
younger activists were pushing for it, some older leaders said it was too much of a gamble. senator aimmy klobuchar -- amy klobuchar said cannot get onboard with that. ainsley: and is 57% of voters voted against it. i would have replaced the police chief with a commissioner voted on by the city council. they were calling it a comprehensive public health approach for saferty. that means that social -- safety. social workers and therapists would deal with substance abuse, mental health and nonviolent situations. steve: they voted it down. ainsley: yep. brian: the california school board voted to bring police back to school campuses -- ainsley: that was in california? brian brian yeah, last night, approve a service agreement with the police department to bring back some haunter to the campussings. so -- law enforcement to the campuses. i think people are sobering up that we need law and order. ainsley: someone who is not
5:14 am
sober -- [laughter] steve: i wasn't going to say that, but you know what, ainsley? go ahead. ainsley: iowans no, i'm kidding. steve: you have sober news. >> yes, exactly. thank you, steve, for cleaning up ainsley's mess. ainsley: you said on day one, brian, i'm ready for some of your crazy cocktails. i'm just -- sorry. >> reporter: i wasn't expecting that. [laughter] ainsley: i've always seen you sober. >> reporter: you know what? let's go get mimosas after the show. [laughter] all right. we have to turn to some headlines, and we're going to start with this. 40 unvaccinated service members and theory two dozen new recruits are discharged for refusing the covid vaccine, another 10,000 air force if service members face removal if they do not get the shot. air force is the first branch of the military to force discipline on unvaccinated members. the supply chain crisis creating a shortage of glass.

5:23 am
suburban votes that had shifted their way. running against trump is apparently not a winning formula despite what they did this new jersey and virginia. brian: but running against him is also fool a hardy. mike pompeo served as secretary of state, ncia director and joins us now. mr. secretary, thanks for joining us. i know you have a perspective that i'm sure you want to share about why things went so firmly the republicans' way as they are about to possibly grab the governorship in new jersey to join glenn youngkin in virginia. what is the reason why, do you think? >> well, good morning. first of all, congratulations to governor-elect youngkin. great races run in virginia, good campaigns. but in the end, parents matter if, education matters. the left has left them. remember, brian, in this place they closed the schools, they kept these kids out of schools, and when they let them come
5:24 am
back, they put them in the masks, and then they subjected them to the risk they might be assaulted in their bathrooms. these things mattered. then they tell parents you can't call them moms. they forgot who we are. it reminds me, brian, of when president obama talked about bitter clingers clinging to their guns and their bibles. they lost the central understanding of who we are as americans, and so the election are got away from them. i suspect when president biden woke up in glasgow this morning he sees this as a real nightmare because he knows his party has been hijacked by the progressive left. ainsley: yeah. and then mcauliffe said parents shouldn't be involved in the schools. do you think this is a referendum on biden? there are a lot of military folks that live virginia. >> yeah. i think basically both of those are true. i think this is definitely about parents reclaiming their kids. when it costs $100 to fill their gas tank, these are things that
5:25 am
strike at the heart of parents who want just the best for their kids. and here in virginia is, of course, it's the case so many soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines not only at the pentagon, virginia beach, author folk, even knows somebody -- norfolk, everybody knows somebody who served in afghanistan, and they are royally hacked off at the debacle this afghanistan. this is about incompetence and not understanding the american people, ainsley. steve: you know, mr. secretary the, it looks like polls got it wrong because this new jersey the day before people went to vote yesterday, i think mr. murphy was ahead by 8 or 9, and right now jack ciattarelli is actually ahead of him. ask then when you look at the commonwealth of virginia where you're at, you know, they said because of early voting, the early voting votes would benefit terry mcauliffe. so it's pretty much a real horse race. but ultimately, it looks like
5:26 am
glenn youngkin is going to win by 2 points. >> yeah. we should have given up paying any attention to these liberal pollsters an awful long time ago, i think, steve. we watched a race that was deeply about the american value set last night. just simple things about local school control and parents taking care of their kids, that these students aren't creatures of the state. mcauliffe ran a race where he embraced the seiu, the most radical teachers union, he talked about abortion, glenn youngkin punched back. these aren't fake culture wars. these are about how we live our lives here in the united states of america. we want a congressional -- we won a congressional race out in texas last night. this is an hearn phenomenon. i've been campaigning for the attorney general-elect for governor youngkin, i've been out all across the country, this is a national phenomenon where americans are reclaiming the country. really good news. you can tell i can't take the

smile off my taste because i think americans across a broad political perspective can see that we've been headed down a bad path with president biden, and they're about to change that, much like they did when i came to congress for the first time in 2011 when we won 60 plus seats in the house of representatives. steve: from the great state of kansas. mike pompeo, sir, thank you very much for joining us live. >> thank you, steve. brian: a four-seat advantage in the house, and this could be it for nancy pelosi. this was a off-year election, and it just has a ripple effect, i think, from here. steve: and you've got to wonder what's going to happen now with those two big bills of joe biden's. are the progressives going to say, well, this is a good reason to do it while we still can, or are moderates going to pump the brakes? ainsley: that's a good point, because the voters are watching. one more year. steve: meanwhile, from ballots to baseball, it was a big night. clay travis reacts to the gop sweep in virginia. amesest but first, the atlanta

5:46 am
job, was a great candidate, and i think he really represented a contrasting vision that was much more appealing to the majority of virginians. and i do think, brian, this wave is building. i think it was strong the last night, but i think it's going to keep building all the way into 2022. and if you go back to the 2010 wave that republicans had, i think there's more dissatisfaction with what's going on in d.c. today than there was at this time in that election cycle. and that is good news for republicans, and that is bad news for joe biden and his regime. ainsley: governor, i know you have a precious little girl sitting next to you. she's a second grader at one of the palm beach county schools, and she is facing disciplinary action, has been suspended for 36 days for not wearing a mask. she's been disciplined over 16 different times. let's bring her in. fiona, are you there? >> yeah. steve: morning. ainsley: good morning, fiona. tell us about what's happening in your school and why you decided not to wear a mask.

5:48 am
mother wants her to do, then the parent ultimately makes the decision. so we are going to strengthen that, and we're going to to make sure that folks are able to go to school in the best possible way for them and for their learning experience. steve: fiona -- brian: what do your friends say? >> what do your friends say? about the masks? do your friends like to wear 'em or not wear 'em? >> well, they don't like to wear them, but they wear them at school. steve: yeah. ty cone that, it sounds like you may have to repeat second grade because of the days off and the discipline. how do you feel about that, having to take this grade over again? >> well, i don't feel good about that, and i don't want to take the grade over again. because i've also been doing most of the work at home also.
5:49 am
ainsley: wow. >> and this is something that the idea -- they're not following florida law. the school board members who defied florida law, a lot of them cavort around maskless all the times in situations where they're requiring fiona -- but to keep a child out of school for that long, that's totally unacceptable. and one of the things we'll look to do is give parents recourse so that if their kids are harmed from these out of control school boards, he was the ability to vindicate their rights and their kids' rights. ainsley: you would think they would have an alternative so that this young, precious child doesn't have to watch her friends go back to school and go on up to third grade and she has to repeat ask her friends move on? it's heartbreaking. let me read the statement from the if palm beach county school district. they said shortly after the current school year began, the palm beach county school district adopted a facial covering mandate to address the rapid rise in cases and to offset the imminent threat to the community and our ability to keep schools open.
5:50 am
students except those who were medically eligible to opt out must wear facial coverings while indoors. governor, we'll give you the last word. >> so all 67 counties, ainsley, have had huge declines in covid cases among school-aged kids. most of them did not have forced masking. so this is not something that's been proven to be effective and, obviously, as we see with fiona, it has caused some of our students harm. steve: governor, thank you very much is. fiona, good luck. >> thank you. steve: thanks for telling your story. straight ahead, don't go anywhere, golf legend bubba watson is sharing his new memoir on overcoming personal challenges in the public eye. ainsley: but first, bill hemmer and dana perino -- bill: welcome back. dana: hi, everybody. so glad to be back. a lot to talk about. election announcements coming your way. kevin mccarthy on his first reaction to last night's

5:57 am
and so it's easy to put it down on paper now and share because i want to help people. not only help myself, but i want to help others out there. that's the whole goal of the book is to at least help one person go in the right direction. steve: sure. and i remember when you won the masters in 2012 just before you got the green jacket, you famously said i never got this far which impacted so many people. and to hear that you had suffered such anxiety and a lot of it was from the, you know, criticism from the fans and commentators and that just started to chew on you. how did that make you feel? >> it was, it made me feel bad, but there's a lot of other things in there, you know? trying to be a husband, trying to be the dad i need to be. right before putting on the green jacket, two weeks before, we adopted our first child. so trying to be the person i need to be for her, for my son, it's challenging. life is hard.
5:58 am

5:59 am
on social media, and they don't realize it does i affect people. >> it really does. and, you know, we could be, we could be a professional athlete, we can be anything in the world, but we're still human. it doesn't matter what your job description is, we're still human. we want to be loved, we want to have respect, and we want to have kind words said about us. words do hurt. i know i've said some mean words in my past, and i'm sorry for those words that i've said to people. i apologize for that. but, i mean, it does hurt. and over time, over years and years it wore me down and finallied hadley darkest hour and, hopefully, i'm going forward and trying to share the word. it's not about professional sports, it's not about professional athletes or celebrities. this is about everybody that does a tough job and has criticism. we need help and we need, you know, love is the key that we all want and we all strive for. brian: brian congratulations, bubba watson -- iowans iowans thank you for doing this, very
