states like pennsylvania. these battleground states, ohio, north carolina and florida. the republican nominee waited until 3:00 this morning to greet his supporters at the hilton hotel in midtown manhattan. trump and his family congratulated the vice presidenç to be mike pence and his family. when he got to the microphone, the first thing on trump's agenda was to let the world know his opponent conceded the race. >> i've just received a call from secretary clinton. she congratulated us. it's about us, on our victory and i congratulated her and her family on a very, very hard-fought campaign. >> you are now looking at the last time we saw hillary clinton in public when she was voting yesterday morning near her home in chappaqua, new york.
her campaign chairman, john podesta addressed clinton's disappointed supporters in manhattan around 2:00 this morning. >> they're still counting votes and every vote should count. we're not going to have anything more to say tonight. everybody should head home. you should get some sleep. we'll have more to say tomorrow. your voices and your enthusiasm means so much to her and to tim and to all of us. >> now, coming up in the next 15 minutes i'll be back. we'll take a look at how philadelphia and the surrounding counties voted, breaking down all the numbers. i'm rosemary connors, nbc 10 news. back to you. >> rosemary, thank you. financial markets around the world are reacting to news that trump is the president-elect. investors are uncertain on trade and immigration. european markets opened lower, japan's major index nose dived and the mexican peso tumbled. here in the u.s. the numbers
rebound after falling sharply last night. at one point, the dow was down about 800 points. in the last few hours it's been down about 300 points. all night long, voters across the nation and here at home watched and wait for the official announcement. >> donald trump talked about bringing the country back together after a divisive campaign, he talked about the need to bind the wounds of division. what do people think this morning who are waking up to this news? monique braxton is live at the trenton train station where passengers will soon be arriving to head to new york. monique, what are they telling you? >> no one has arrived here yet. the train station here, the trenton transit center is closed but in just a few hours, people will be arriving here who have come from bucks county as well as trenton to head to new york. some of them will be waking up and finding out for the first time that the republican presidential candidate has won this election. so we have some folks that we've talked to in the wee hours of the morning and we gauge their
reaction. >> it's a debacle. it's sad. >> i think this whole election all they have done is argue about each other instead of saying what they were going to do for this country. that's pretty much what this election has been about, them against each other. >> i like the fact that he doesn't have a lot of tact. i love the fact that he's not in politics. i think we need something different. let's run this as a business. he's not the greatest businessman of all time but everyone in the world knows who he is. he has some sort of pull. i mean, he has to be doing something right. >> as you heard, the views are going to be mixed. probably that is just a sampling of what we're going to hear all day long. throughout the morning we'll be here in trenton talking to people as they arrive here and head to new york about the outcome of the 2016 presidential election. live for now in trenton, monique braxton, nbc 10 news. >> monique, thank you.

phone call just before 3:00 this morning. nbc 10 got local reaction to the trump victory. >> this whole election, all they have done is argue about each other instead of saying what they were going to do for this country. that's pretty much what this election has been about, them against each other. >> who is going to do what, i couldn't tell you. it's against hillary and trump. that it's all they've argued about. >> the battleground state of pennsylvania proved to be one of the deciding factors in the race for president, flipping to republican for the first time since 1988. >> nbc 10's rosemary connors joins us now for a look at how people across the keystone state voted. >> if donald trump was going to win pennsylvania he would have to come up big, flip pennsylvania from blue to red. let's take a look at some of the counties. philadelphia, overwhelmingly went for hillary clinton, 82%. montgomery county, 59% for clinton, delaware county, similar story. it's when you get a little bit further out from philadelphia.
chester county still hillary clinton, we get to bucks, they're split. berks county went for donald trump. lehigh county, hillary clinton but only by a few points and northampton county, again, to donald trump. this of course was a big story here in pennsylvania that if a person who is going to take pennsylvania's electoral votes they would have to get philadelphia, the surrounding counties and beyond to offset republican votes further out in the state. we'll continue to follow this. we also are going to have more reaction from some of the voters in our area. we'll hear more from donald trump coming up in 15 minutes. >> 4:15. republican pat toomey will return to the senate. >> nbc 10's randy gyllenhall was at his lehigh county headquarters for his late-night victory speech. take a look. >> it was a nail biter in the pennsylvania senate race. pat toomey wins re-election. the balloons just fell from above as this crowd celebrates this last-minute win. it's about 1:00 in the morning
right now. senator toomey took the stage, telling the crowd he got a congratulatory phone call from his opponent, katie mcginty and added that he's ready to take the fight back to washington and shake things up. >> let's face it, this was a tough campaign, quite a battle. there was an all-time record amount of money spent against us. a lot of the ads were just outright false. but you know, the voters were smart enough to figure it out as they usually are. >> toomey's victory not a surprise. he did trail in a number of polls and had millions of dollars of negative ads run against him. his win also secures the u.s. senate to be in republican hands, retenning that majority control. pat toomey says he's ready to go back to washington. in lehigh county, randy gyllenhall, nbc 10 news. i'm here in center city. the room cleared out shortly after katie mcginty gave her speech, her concession speech to pat toomey. she was very gracious in defeat and earlier in the night, there
was a lot of excitement in this room from supporters of both katie mcginty and hillary clinton. they wanted to see a very historic night and see katie mcginty become the first female u.s. senator in pennsylvania. but that didn't happen. as the night continued, we saw a lot of people disappointed. a lot of long faces, some people didn't ev) stay through most of the night. we spoke to a few of them, some of them are trying to look at some kind of silver lining, moving ahead. katie mcginty said she doesn't know what's next but she will continue to spend time with her family in the meantime. >> and it's 4:17 right now. in addition to the pennsylvania senate race, voters here also elected a new attorney general. >> nbc 10's pamela osborne is live for us in center city to look at that race and other developments from new jersey and delaware. pam, walk us through this. >> yes, certainly a lot to get through this morning. we're going to break it all down for you. let's start with the race for pa
