6:03 am
have been monitoring the election since election day say the numbers hold up and they don't see a bay for fimian to make up the difference in a recouldn't. this would be his second loss to connelly. in 2008 he lost by a much larger margin, 12 points. connelly has claimed victory. he did that at his election night rally. he is gearing up to serve his second term in congress. that makes him one of four democratic lawmakers in the state of virginia to survive the twin midterm elections. now, i know many of you are wondering when and where will this possible concession be taking place? all we know is it will likely take place sometime later today. the fimian camp has said they will be issuing a statement later this morning. mike? >> okay. we know that congressman connelly was hospitalized over the weekend. have we heard about his condition now? >> we have. his campaign actually released a statement yesterday evening. they are saying that late last week, after the election was over, connelly went in for a regular checkup and while he
6:04 am
was there he experienced some december comfort. they took him to the hospital and while he was there he was treated for a pretty serious condition. he was treated for a blood clot in an artery. he is now reportedly doing just fine. he's been released from the hospital and apparently he even stopped by his campaign's election headquarters before he ever went home. so connelly's campaign is certainly saying that he is recovering and looking forward to getting back to serving the people of virginia. back to you. >> thank you, kristin. kristin is live on captiol hill this morning. so here's a look at the balance of power in the house coming this november. right now the republicans have 239 seats after gaining 60 in the midterm election. democrats with 188, including cram connelly's seat. there are still, though, eight races which have not been called yet. while you slept the white house made a change to the president's overseas trip. >> we learned the president will likely cut short his visit to indonesia because of concern of the possibility of a volcano

6:13 am
we will have an update on the outer loop accident in maryland. andrea, it is 6:18 actually. our time is 6:12. arlington county is considering banning plastic bags, the ones you get at the grocery store but needs the statement's permission -- state's permission first. the county will hold a hearing on saturday. it wants to either tax the bags or ban them outright but the decision must be approved by state lawmakers in richmond. we reported this yesterday a probst on monday outside of the u.s. attorneys office. people upset that charges were dropped against five men accused of beating a man to death outside of the dc 9 nightclub. prosecutors said there just wasn't enough evidence. maryland will be the second state to have an off shore wind farm. the federal government approved more than 300 turbines ten miles from ocean city. the turbines will not be visible from the coastline.
6:14 am
mike? coming up on 6:14 now. it's a horrific crime against children and it is happening here in our area. according to the department of justice, 300,000 children in the united states alone are at risk every year of becoming involved in the child sex trafficking industry. a week ago, prince georges county man was sentenced to 20 years in prison for forcing girls as young as 12 years old in to the sex trade in dc and in maryland. one of his young victims, a teenager we will call bianca spoke exclusively with andrea mccarren about her three-year ordeal. her rivetting story gave us a glimpse in the world of human trafficking that is taking place steps from the white house. how many men have you been with. >> hundreds. >> over the years, yeah.
6:15 am
>> joining us to talk about child sex trafficking and locals here who created a safe house for these children is tonya overton and also bianca's therapist. this is a flabber gassing report that andrea had. is this really widespread the dc area. >> yeah. >> it is? >> the numbers you gave, the 300,000, those are reported, and those are things that need to be considered when thinking about how devastating the problem is and how many people are impacted impacted. socially it goes against every rabel line and economically it can be from urban to suburban residential areas so it is widespread. >> how difficult is it to help someone get over the horrors they have experienced in this young woman's case in a three- year period. >> because of so many facets in which to actually be programmed
6:16 am
to actually live in the game, play the game and survive the game because at every point of the junction from the honeymoon to the profiting of human trafficking, there are psychological, emotional, there's drug abuse, physical abuse. so we deal with a lot of different areas in counseling and in therapy where we deal with the past and bringing it out of their future so they can have a clearing to reinvent and regenerate themselves as, you know, citizens, you know, productive citizens. >> day-to-day life. >> regular people. >> one of the main reasons why you are here is because you are starting a fund-raiser to generate funds to help people through the first step of healing. >> yes. if we could let everyone know on november 20th we are actually having a fund-raiser but doing a documentary that will give a widespread
6:17 am
perspective of both the pimp and the john and the girls. and how it really affects and impacts them and how many people actually get converted. because you can come out of the life or but a lot of people return and that's why the safe house is important and the renewal and therapy that we present because a lot of people are not rehabbed and institutions are missing the actual part that impact human traffic use versus any other youth that maybe in a detention home or arrested for another crime. >> if you would like more information about the fund- raiser for the safe house, go to our wb at andrea mccarren will continue her special special report on child sex trafficking in our area. bianca's mother will share her story searching the streets for her daughter missing more than three years. now check in with howard. we wise a good start to the
