the message has been sent loud and clear! >> exit polling indicated fiorina fared best with older voters while boxer did well among blacks and latino voters. democrats may have done well in california, but republicans have swept the house of representatives. some races have yet to be called. but it's predicted republicans will gain at least 60 seats in the house. that will be the biggest shift since 1948. one race still up in the air the 11th congressional district. jerry mcnerney, democrat incumbent, is trailing by 13 votes. republican challenger david harmer has seen his lead shrink all morning. the district includes parts of alameda, contra costa and santa clara counties. also the race for attorney general is too close to call. republican steve cooley the district attorney in los angeles county has been in the lead all last night. but democrat kamala harris has pulled ahead by less than 1
point. she is the d.a. in san francisco. san francisco mayor gavin newsom is the state's next lieutenant governor. he defeated the incumbent, republican maldonado 50 to 39%. that's with more than 92% of precincts reporting. linda yee reports on what newsom promises to do. reporter: i'm linda yee in san francisco with the gavin newsom campaign for lieutenant governor. all night, newsom held a slim lead over the incumbent but he felt confident he will win the office. he listed some priorities. >> what i want to do is reinvent the office. i have no interest in it being sort of that also ran office. i think people know me, love me or hate me, know that i'm willing to take some risks, willing to be bold. >> reporter: at the newsom campaign in san francisco, linda yee, cbs 5. >> maldonado supporters spent the night at california's gop headquarters in irvine. no word on where the candidate was for election night but earlier yesterday, you can see he was voting in his hometown of santa maria.

"the young & the restless" will now air at 2:12 tomorrow morning. the "the bold and the beautiful" will air at 3:12. >> i'm thinking of all the logistics to put together a parade with all the balloons and the confetti and then the news stations. i mean, we had to go stage our trucks all over. i have to scoot out of here probably at 7 a.m. >> the balloons run. i saw them at 3:30 this morning. the barricades are up. they are ready if you want to come into town and watch this great parade. a hit-and-run at one polling place in the bay area. the candidate who was hurt and his condition coming up. >> plus a final vote on a happy meal toy ban. the decision that little pact dozens of bay area restaurants. ,,,,

[ male announcer ] losing a tooth is a big deal at any age. that's why we offer dental coverage. blue shield.
good morning. let's go out to chopper 5. there's already some closures on washington street where the parade starts near the transamerica building. washington street is shut down now between davis and montgomery. they are expecting hundreds of thousands of people on the streets of downtown san francisco today for the giants parade and in fact beginning at 10 a.m., they are not going to be allowing any more cross traffic on montgomery or market streets. some of the main lines along the parade route. let's go to our maps. we can show you a live look heading towards the bay bridge. a lot of people are going to be head there is later on this morning. hopefully you will use mass transit. that's your best option if you
are heading to the parade. it looks like they may have just turned on the metering lights at the bay bridge. so far no big delays approaching the toll plaza. looks good on the upper deck of the bay bridge. bart will be a good option. the montgomery street, powell street and civic center bart stations are going to take you along the parade route. bart will be running longer trains. muni metro and caltrain is a great option from the peninsula. ferly a great idea. the golden gate larkspur ferry will be offering extra departures at 7:30 and 9:45 this morning. that's your traffic. here's tracy with your forecast. hey, thanks, elizabeth. i don't think it could be any better for a parade. you might think it's a little warm today if you're packed in too tightly. it will remain warm in the 80s.
eventually this high pressure system will move out taking the 80s along with it. we'll have a chance of showers. 85 morgan hill. lower 80s in santa clara and in civilian any veil. 77 in san mateo. and 74 at half moon bay. east bay locations, 80s. 74 in richmond. 80 san rafael. lower 80s from fairfield to santa rosa. 79 in novato. 76 mill valley. 72 in sausalito. and 75 degrees in san francisco. plenty of sunshine today and warm thursday but that low
pressure system is just around the corner. chance of showers back in the forecast friday and sunday. it is a 30% chance of showers. and again that will be toward the end of the workweek. today at 11:00 this morning, it's the giants victory parade. wear layers. 70 degrees, plenty of sunshine. back to you. >> thank you. 6:20. kids meals in san francisco, they are about to get less fun. the board of supervisors has voted to ban toys from fast food meals. it will take effect in december of next year. restaurants will only be able to offer toys if fruits and veggies are included. this morning a candidate for richmond city council is doing better after a hit-and- run. police say eduardo martinez was knocked to the ground as a van
left a polling place. the driver didn't stop and could face serious charges if caught. martinez went to the hospital but should be okay. we still don't know who the next mayor of oakland will be. the 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 determine the runoff winner. if elected, perata says safety in oakland will be his priority. >> to bring those 80 police positions back to make sure that people understand that there's a new set of priorities in oakland and keeping people here safe, keeping our kids safe, our elderly safe, the business community safe, is a priority. >> results of the runoff are expected late friday afternoon. 6:21. there is a new reality in our nation's capital. >> a shift of power in congress and what it means for speaker
power in the u-s congress. to help break it down, political welcome back. continuing our coverage of election day, there is a shift of power in the u.s. congress. >> and to help break it down for us, political analyst james taylor joins us once again. james, good morning. let's look at congress in general and nancy pelosi in particular. so your thoughts on how congress has been rearranged now. >> there's a definite power shift in the republican direction. i think if you are barack obama this morning you have to try to look at this situation as a glass is half empty, half full. you still have two of the three branches or three houses of government and as a result, therefore, you know, it's not completely reaching but he is not as strong as he was the day before yesterday. >> let's talk about nancy pelosi. she keeps her seat but she loses the power. >> she continues to be a representative in the bay area but loses the power that she had. as i said earlier she was one of the most powerful women in america. and overnight she isn't.
she was a major target of the opposition and as a consequence they got her, they went after barbara boxer but weren't successful there. >> do you think she will leave congress? >> doubtful. she will continue to try to make differences in terms of policy and support the issues she supports. but i don't know what her intentions are, obviously. but newt gingrich when he lost he left and made a career writing books and speeches. >> so what's going to happen between now and january? i mean, the people in power still a have a couple of months. >> it's a lame duck congress. she will preside over a lame duck congress until the new people are inaugiated and signed. >> dogs that mean they get mignon. >> no, no one will do anything. figure out her next move. >> will they be able to work together? >> they have to. there are important issues like taxes. the bush tax cuts are not repealed, everyone's taxes go up and that will look bad for the republicans in 2011 with the election coming up. >> thank you for being here all
morning with us. cbs 5 political analyst james taylor. appreciate that. in our next half hour we'll be joined by former state assembly leader willie brown, which will be exciting and interesting, as well. >> 6:27. in minutes a roundup of the big winners from election night. plus the propositions that passed and failed. ,,,,,,,,

good morning. it's wednesday, november 3-rd. i'm juliette goodrich. and oh, such a beautiful shot! bathed in orange light, chopper 5 over san francisco city hall and the civic center plaza there. several hundred fans already waiting. that is where the giants parade is going through downtown san francisco. it will be hending -- take a look at the crowd, already at 6:30. fans camped out all night long. anne makovec will have live report and we'll have live parade coverage starting at 11 a.m. good morning to you, it's wednesday, november 3. i'm juliette goodrich. >> i'm sydnie kohara. good morning, everyone. it is 6:30. okay. if you are just waking up let's get straight to some of the big races. jerry brown will once again be california governor. and barbara boxer keeps her seat as senator. there is a new leader in the oh, so close race in the
11th congressional district. democratic incumbent jerry mcnerney now leads for the first time by, get this, just 121 votes. republican challenger david harmer had been leading until just a very short time ago. the race for attorney general is also a dead heat. democrat kamala harris leads will be steve cooley by 7/10ths of a percent. let's look at some of the propositions that passed. voters approved prop l in san francisco, which bans people from sitting or lying down on the sidewalk during the day. america's v and w passed in -- measures v and w passed in san jose affecting pension an unions. prop 19 failed to legalize recreational marijuana. prop 23 failed which would have
suspended environmental laws unless the state economy's approved. the governor's race was one of the most expensive we have ever seen but a tsunami of cash wasn't enough to defeat jerry brown. mark sayre is at brown's coming pain headquarters with what the governor-elect plans today. >> reporter: good morning. governor-elect jerry brown will be holding a news conference this morning here at his campaign headquarters in oakland. of course, last night as the returns were coming in, jerry brown was celebrating at the fox theatre here in oakland. brown is returning to the post he held three decades ago last leaving the office in 1983. during his acceptance speech, brown called for an end to polarization, hostility and division. >> i'm hoping and praying that this breakdown, we're watching it in washington, that the breakdown paves the way for a breakthrough and that's the spirit i want to take back to
sacramento 28 years later, full of energy, full of creativity, and ready to serve you, the people of california! >> reporter: now, brown's opponent meg whitman appeared just before midnight after calling governor-elect brown to congratulate him on his victory. whitman telling her supporters that while her journey may be ending, the overall 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 because of the people of california deserve no less. >> reporter: this race, $200 million invested in it making it the most expensive statewide race ever in united states history. governor-elect brown will have a news conference at 11 a.m. >> thank you, mark sayre in oakland. it is 6:33.
let's get a check of weather and traffic. weather will be beautiful for the praise. how is the commute looking? >> back out to chopper 5. if there are this many people there now, you can see what it will be like later on this morning. the parade kicks off at 11:00 and it will be very busy and hard to get in and around san francisco. already there are some closures by the heart of the financial drink. washington is shut down between davis and montgomery. and beginning around 10:00 this morning, that's when they are going to stop allowing cross street traffic on montgomery and market. the main lines along the parade route. hundreds of thousands of people are expected to flood the streets there of downtown san francisco. let talk a little bit about how to get there. mass transit is going to be a great option. golden gate larkspur ferry, they are offering two extra
departures and 7:30 a.m. and 9:45. bart is running longer trains. be aware, though, that park lots fill up quickly and if you are coming from the peninsula, caltrain, muni metro, also a good idea. stay off the roads, getting home is going to be another huge issue as well once the parade wraps up. that's your traffic. here's tracy with your forecast. hey, thanks, elizabeth. warm across the bay area. concord average daytime my november 71 degrees. 70 in santa rosa, 69 san jose, 67 in san francisco. here's a look at today's highs: 80 in concord, 82 in santa rosa, 83 in san jose, 75 degrees in san francisco. other high temperatures today:
a chance of rainfall is just around the corner. your seven-day forecast is coming up. >> thank you. 6:36. new this morning, san francisco police on the hunt for the person who stole a bunch of ballots. police say someone broke into an automatic ballot counting machine yesterday afternoon in the city's excelsior district. police suspect that a poll worker was behind this. at this point it's not clear just how many ballots were taken. city workers at san francisco will have to pay a greater share of their pension and healthcare benefits. 58% of voters approve prop b. it will affect more than 50,000 city employees and retirees. all right. 6:36. democrat barbara boxer has won a fourth term in the united states senate. she says it was the toughest race of her career. as of now, she has a 52-42%
leaved republican challenger carly fiorina. >> our victory tonight belongs to the people of california. democrats, republicans, yes, we got a bunch of republicans. we have a republican votes. i'm proud of that. independents. we got their votes, too. >> when fiorina spoke late last night she said the race was too close to call. she focused on republican wins in congress. >> we have had a fantastic sweep across the nation. many senate seats have already fallen and as you all well know, we have a new majority leader, john boehner. just a wonderful, wonderful night. yes, exactly. the message has been sent loud and clear! >> exit polling indicated fiorina fared best with older voters, while boxer did well among blacks and latinos. it is 6:37. certainly a big, big night for democrats in california. but across the country, it was
a big night for republicans, who took back control of the house. randall pinkston joins us with the big shake-up in washington. i understand the president is expected to speak at 10 a.m. our time. do you think he is going to address his agenda and this shake-up in congress? >> reporter: yes, good morning, sydnie and juliette. he certainly will be speaking at about 10 a.m. your time. and we're not quite sure whether he will address an agenda. we do believe he will talk about cooperation. he will congratulate the winners of course. and he may have some words to say about the accomplishments of the democrats, who were led in the house of representatives by speaker nancy pelosi. president obama has said in the past that she may go down as one of the greatest speakers of the house in history. certainly the record of legislation that she pushed the president's agenda is spectacular so much so that she
became the lightning rod of opposition in this election cycle. >> so what's next for house speaker and our bay area congresswoman nancy pelosi? what's the word in washington? >> reporter: we are waiting to see exactly what she decides to do. there is some speculation she may decide to follow the path of former house speaker newt gingrich, who was re-elected but after he lost his -- his party lost the majority, he elected to resign. we don't know if that will be speaker pelosi's decision. she of course has been reelected and may opt to remain in the house possibly as the minority leader, the loyal opposition, which she had been serving as for so many years until she was elected speaker. >> thank you very much, randall pinkston in washington, d.c. 6:39. and president obama put aside some time on election day to calling the san francisco giants. he invited them to the white house saying he can't wait to
meet them in bern. the giants who captured the world series title invited him to a home game. sydnie had a great idea, let him throw out the first pitch. >> the parade kicks off in a few hours. live pictures from chopper 5 in city hall lit up in orange and several hundred fans and moregatheringss there. we invite you to watch the parade on cbs 5 starting at 11 a.m. the president is speaking at 10:00. >> so we'll have all that coverage, as well. they have me right in the middle of the route. a lot of confetti surrounding it. >> you will look good with orange confetti. >> it's fun. 6:40. encouraging numbers on jobs this morning. we'll be back with you moneywatch report.
[ bell rings ] what are you doing, friending somebody? yeah. you got time for that? you got time to earn more on your savings, online at capitalone.com. that's new school banking, baby! instead of earning squatootski... your savings will be earning three times the national average. now, let's review. capital one interestplus savings... at three times more. go to capitalone.com. what's in your wallet? are you a pisces?
good morning. an accidents westbound 237 approaching zanker road on the commute towards silicon valley. chp hasn't even arrived on scene. this is milpitas in the westbound lanes of 237 as you leave 880. right now 7 minutes towards 101 so we're not sure if lanes are blocked yet. the commute through downtown san jose looks great. no problems on any of the major freeways in the south bay. live look at 280 traffic approaching the 880 interchange. all the approaches to the bay bridge okay. it is starting to get slow down the eastshore freeway through berkeley. about a 20, 21-minute drive time on westbound 80 from the carquinez bridge to the maze. the metering lights have been on at the bay bridge.
so that's what it looks like kind of slow and go from the metering lights all the way up the incline. at the bay bridge toll plaza, still not quite at full strength. only backed up to the 880 overcrossing. going to be a totally different story later on today. we have been talking about it all morning the giants victory parade kicks off at 11 a.m. it starts in the financial district by the transamerica building where there's already road closures in effect. washington street shut down right now between davis and montgomery. and then the parade continues south on montgomery, then heads west along market and ends up by civic center plaza where hundreds of thousands of people are expected to come. mass transit is obviously going to be a great option. there's going to be a lot of extra traffic heading into san francisco. bart is running longer trains as well as larkspur ferry offering extra service. at 7:30 a.m. and 9:45. two extra departures. all right. that's a cheng check. for your forecast for today's parade, here's tracy. >> hey, thanks, elizabeth. forecast for today, whoo!
pretty nice. that's the easy part. out the door this morning, mostly clear. some patchy fog being reported inland in our valleys. mostly clear conditions around the bay. and patchy fog along the coastline. we do still have a high surf advisory in effect until 3:00 this afternoon. temperatures pretty chilly inland with temperatures cooling down as much as the upper 40s around the bay, 52 to 62 degrees. and along the coast, 48 to 62 for this morning as you head out the door. this afternoon, mostly sunny warm temperatures up to the mid- 80s. mostly sunny and warm around the bay to the mid-70s and the mid-70s along the coastline in our warmest spots expected through the afternoon. highs today from 77 in san mateo to 79 in mountain view, 83 in san jose, 58 in los gatos, and the lower 80s in fremont and also milpitas. more 80-degree temperatures from concord with 80 degrees expected. 81 in pleasant hill. 82 in danville, 82 livermore,
84 in pleasanton. 70s in berkeley, oakland, 78 san leandro and hayward. north bay locations, nice. 81 in petaluma. 82 in santa rosa. 72 in san anselmo. 80 san rafael. 72 in kentfield. 75 degrees in san francisco. loving it! five-day forecast, let's look at the next couple of days. tomorrow more sunshine. still warm. chance of showers though coming in friday as we cool down. it 20 degrees cooler for sunday well inland and more sunshine monday and tuesday but temperatures will be closer to more seasonal highs. giants parade at 11 a.m. downtown san francisco sunny skies, 70 degrees. i know, that's nice. 6:47. encouraging numbers on jobs this morning. they come ahead of friday's report on october employment. >> here's jason brooks with kcbs and cbsmoneywatch.com. good morning to you, jason. >> good morning.
we did get some encouraging news from adp that tracks private employer numbers. we saw a gain of 43,000 new jobs in october 20,000 more than expected and they revise the september numbers from a loss of 39,000 to just a loss of 2,000. that does typically trend into the jobs report from the labor department so hopefully that will spur a little bit more job growth as we look towards friday's report lot unemployment rate is likely to -- although the unemployment rate is likely to stay at 9.6%. the big question with the federal reserve today how big of a round of quantitative easing will we see? feds looking to buy government debt to push borrowing cost down for consumers and companies. expectations from wall street up to $1 trillion although the "wall street journal" says it could come in much less. if that's the case, wall street could be disappointed. at the moment the market fairly flat as expected before a fed decision of that magnitude. dow up 6 points, nasdaq down by
one. s&p higher by about 1 point. back to you. >> thank you. jason brooks with kcbs and cbsmoneywatch.com we'll be watching the market this morning. 6:49. it looks like the democratic candidates have won statewide offices. phil matier and willie brown joining us now to hash it all out. good morning, gentlemen. >> hold that thought. >> good morning. and what a night it was from the east coast all the way to the west. republican roll. you thought the democrats would hold on. what do you say? >> i was wrong. totally and completely wrong. >> can we redo that? take two. what did you say? >> i was wrong. i'm telling you, phil, i was way off. >> enjoying this moment. go ahead. >> i'm not enjoying this moment. i hate to see the opportunity lost that was granted to democrats in 2004 and 2006 and then 2008. >> my enjoying it has nothing
