south station with the results and reaction on everything from slots parlors to schools and marijuana, jess. >> there were a total of four questions on the ballot. the most polarizing was the one that dealt with legalizing marijuana. it came very, very close and it did pass and as of next month, recreational pot will be legal in massachusetts. that will go into effect december 15, a little over a month from now, and if you were 21 or older, it means can smoke marijuana if that's what you feel like doing. in january 2018, you will be able to go out to a store and buy it. medicinal has been legal since 2008 but a big step forward making it legal for everyone who is of age. question number two, another hotly debated topic that goes with charter schools. voted down by a pretty wide margin and it would have
the state by up to a dozen a year. two others, question one and question three. the first question dealt with casinos in the bay state. that was voted down meaning we will not be getting a new slots parlor any time soon and question three dealt with the confinement of animals on farms. and it basically it mandates that animals need room to be able to stand up and turn around and that passed by a huge margin last night in massachusetts. that will go into effect in january of 20 so a lot of changes here going into effect in this morning. we will be talking to people here at the station not only about the ballot questions but also about the news that donald trump is our next president. and we will have that for you later in the morning here on fox25. for now we are live in boston, jessica reyes, fox25 news. and marijuana was the big winner of the night. voters here and in california legalized marijuana. five states had it on the ballot, arizona and nevada also passed recreational laws.

>> shiri: yes, showers around today. not a lot of it today julie, so it will come through in a spotty fashion. some of you staying dry. look at these very meager rain totals expected today from a trace up to about a 10th of an inch of rain. steadiest stuff over southeastern mass, boston, worcester, nashua, new hampshire, all just very light and very widely scattered. so here it is along the front. this front is going to sag toward us here. but you can see not making very much progress into new england. they are hitting a wall of dr falling apart as they go. a lot of energy and moisture go from the north to the south. smack-dab in the middle and still looking generally dry. i think one ruffle in the plan could be drizzle into southwestern new hampshire and perhaps central massachusetts at 9:00 this morning. by noontime, the slight risk of showers. and in the boston area a slight risk of a noontime shower. most of the activity pretty far inland. best bet for rain ends up being
getting wet at 5 p.m. kevin lemanowicz will tart tracking these showers for you right here on fox25 starting at 4:00 this evening, but keep in mind really not a soaker. this will be very low impact. steadiest stuff by the evening will be south of boston. boston is dry at 8 p.m. the south shore, the south coast, cape and islands seeing a little bit of that rain continue. it winds down by midnight tonight. temperature-wise, we have gotten pretty big range from 49 in boston to 50 in worcester. i actually want to take to you keene, new hampshire. currently freezing there. at 32. temperatures slowly inching up. by the time -- no more freezing temperatures. no more threat of any -- just light stuff. slight risk of showers into the morning and early afternoon. high temperatures there only get into the lower 5s. you compare that to areas south of boston where it is going to be lower 60s today. so there you have it north and west of post. a kind of cool day, mild day to
this morning, donald trump has secured the white house. hillary clinton conceded the race around 2:45 this morning after it became clear that trump would reach the number of electoral votes he needed. for key victories in battleground states that the polls showed were leaning toward hillary clinton. reaction to the election results were immediate and widespread from oakland to boston, we saw cheers, even tears as donald trump took the white house. fox25's daniel miller joins us now with reaction. >> daniel: yeah, we knew emotions would be running high last night, and results came in, things boiled over.
key battleground states like ohio. trump took an early lead there and never gave up. he ended up winning that state by more than eight points. at clinton's alma matter in wellesley college. many students there were in tears as the night dragged on and it became very clear she would not be the next president. before trump arrived at his campaign party in new york city, a crowd had already gathered outside the white house. things quickly got out of hand as trump and clinton supporters got into several shouting campaign trail. after trump gave his speech, protesters stormed the streets of berkeley, california. broken shop windows, toppled trash cans and one person was hit by a car and seriously hurt when the protesters went out on the highway. some protested, others look to get out. so many visited the canadian immigration web site that it crashed last night. if you were thinking of moving to canada, don't pack up your

for all the votes to be counted. michael henrich is live in new hampshire. and michael, this race is just too close to call. >> reporter: absolutely too close to call and neither candidate claimed victory or conceded. we are here at the red arrow diner. we have been speaking with diners throughout the morning getting their take on all the races and the results we do know. new hampshire's presidential race is too close to call, but donald trump is our president elect at this point. then diners are reacting to that news. >> i am psyched. it's -- if all else, it is just for those supreme court justices, you know, those judges are so important right now. >> i was waiting for hillary to win. and then it never happened so i am kind of disappointed.
overall race has been called. the senate race too close to call and all eyes on that. the governor's race, that is said and done. that has been called for chris sununu. the third sununu to win office in new hampshire. he will be governor. his father was governor and his brother was a u.s. senator here. again, that race decided. keep an eye on the senate as we continue to gauge reaction throughout the morning in manchester. reporting live in manchester, michael henrich, fox25 news. despite the close race in ne were able to extend their control over both houses of. congress. fox25's jackie fell in washington d.c. democrats were hoping to take over the senate, but that is not happening. >> reporter: gene, the hopes were shattered. they only needed a couple of seats and even though some of the races have not yet been decided, republicans will be in control and in charge for the next few years. gop candidates won most of the
carolina and ohio. in new hampshire still too close to call. there is likely to be a recount. with the republican president and the gop controlled house and senate, democrats are going to have a challenge stopping the gop. the last time a republican president had full control was george w. bush in 2004. now some of of the priority for republicans are likely to include overturning the affordable care act and nominating a different supreme missouri republican senator roy blunt said he is looking for quick action. >> a republican president and a republican senate and a republican house can do things to change this country and focus again on opportunity. >> reporter: democrats did pick up one republican seat, iraq war vet duckworth. democrats needed five seats to take control of the senate.

accident on the expressway. >> julie: northbound at adams street. skyfox bringing us live pictures off to the right shoulder and you can see this volume starting to build. up to a 28-minute drive from the expressway from the braintree split to the exit to the pike. also shiri, a little overcast, we have seen brighter mornings than what we saw in those live pictures. >> shiri: the sun is coming up. some of you will get partly sunny skies. right now it is 35 degrees. by 7 a.m., i have got us at 36. and those temperatures jumping into the 40s thickening up quickly. showers more of an issue for the evening commute. we will take an hour-by-hour look in about ten minutes. gene, back to you. donald trump's clear victory last night was a surprise to pollsters and pundits alike.
back here at 6:43. and if you are just waking up, donald trump seizes an early morning victory in the presidential election. at one point hillary clinton's campaign manager told the crowd they will wait for morning for the final votes to come in. shortly thereafter they changed their mind and around 3:00 in phone call to concede and trump made his victory speech. chris flanagan live in new york city. this was a race live to the finish. >> reporter: gene, it certainly was going right up at 3:00 when hillary clinton conceded. but donald trump proving all the pollsters wrong. very few of them had him winning this election, but he had a very slim and very narrow path to victory. he had to win the swing states, and he did that indeed, capturing almost all the
started early on with florida and north carolina. then he won ohio and two more surprising ones, pennsylvania and wisconsin. really carrying that upper midwest, that rust belt, projecting him to victory. so donald trump winning -- picking up some states that haven't carried a republican president in a couple of decades actually gene. >> and when chris did give his speech, his victory speech, he did have a softer tone and seemed to extend an olive branch when he was speaking. did. you know, such a tough -- tough campaign, but he really talked about bringing the country together. he was criticized so much for his -- his didemeanor and his actions on the campaign trail. he was criticized for his rhetoric characterized by opponents as being a racist. so donald trump pledging last night or this morning actually behind me at the hilton hotel, that he be the president for all americans, and he cherishes
and he is asking for their guidance. perhaps a new chapter as we move forward with donald trump who will be our 45th president of the united states. we are live in manhattan, chris flanagan, fox25 news. >> gene: chris, thank you. trump's running mate bursting with excitement. vice president-elect mike pence called election night historic as he took the stage. pence introduced his newly elected running of made him feel. >> i am deeply grateful for the american people for placing their confidence in this team and giving us this opportunity to serve. >> gene: pence continued showing his thanks mingling with his supporters. and new hampshire is a state that hangs in the balance right now. granite state has not yet been called either way for trump or clinton. also too close to call in terms
maggie hassan. right now the percentages are equal at 48%, but kelly ayotte has a 1500-vote lead at this hour. we will continue to follow that for you and get the latest on the vote tally on the all-important senate race in champ. over to you. a rough night for democrats. not only did their candidate lose the presidential election, they also do not get control of congress. joining us on the phone is congressman michael capuano from massachusetts 7th who is unopposed in the elections. good morning and congratulations, congressman. >> thank you for small victory. we will take whatever we can get today. >> sara: you woke up this morning, trump is president. what are your thoughts? >> well, right now the white house controls the white house, the senate and the house. some people have wanted that for a while. clearly the country has been trending to the right the last, oh, ten years or so, and we will have to wait and see. if -- if this is what the country wants after about two
actually do now that they control it all, then, look, so be it. that is what elections are all about. i don't think that will be the case. i think many americans will wake up a little while from now and say what did we do. and kind of bring us a little bit back to the middle, but we will find out. that is what elections are all about and see where it goes. >> sara: what do you think happened in the battleground states. hillary clinton was leading in many and they went to trump. the polls all along said it looked like what happened there. >> i never -- we all say polls after the fact, but i don't -- i am not a big poll guy. never have been. at the same time, i am no -- i thought hillary -- i knew it would be close, but i thought she would win, and all i can tell that you, you know, again, america is -- is always a surprise. elections are always a surprise. and i think people should embrace that. we are kind of lucky to be in
>> sara: absolutely right. what are your thoughts working with president sfruvrp we will do what we can would work with him. depends if he actually does some of the things he talked about, i will oppose him on the issues. if he actually now comes back to the middle and tries to govern from the middle, i will do what like to work with him just like everybody else. i think that is what elections are also supposed to be about. democrats lost. the ideas that we were proposing which i support most of them were not embraced by the american people, so i want to give doesn't mean i will give up all my principles. he talked about a big transportation bill. i always agreed with that. a big investment and i look -- if he dozen it on the back of poor people by taxes or whatever that might be, that will be a problem. but right now, i want to give him the benefit of the doubt, but that's up to him as to how he actually wants to govern. >> sara: let's talk about something more local here in
>> i supported the ballot question, but i also said very clearly and i will continue to say this. i really hope the legislature goes to work, the ballot question needs to be fixed. a lot of questions there on edibles, on the -- on the incapacity to drive. things like that. they have to be addressed, but the concept i always thought was right. it is a waste of time for a government to be enforcing these laws at this point in history and i am kind of glad we are moving the legislature will do that and i look forward to them being done. >> sara: congressman michael capuano, thank you for waking up with us and thank you for your input. >> take care. >> gene: reaction from governor charlie baker. he did not endorse any candidate and he didn't vote for any candidate in the vote for president. he issued a statement. the people of massachusetts deserve a federal government that works collaboratively to solve our nation's problems and my help that president-elect
