6:08 am
outright false. but you know, the voters were smart enough to figure it out as they usually are. >> senator toomey and i have disagreed on a few things. but this i know. the senator has serveed this commonwealth and he is raising a beautiful family in this commonwealth. he has earned and deserves our gratitude and respect. and i wish him god's blessings and godspeed. >> reporter: and senator toomey's narrow win was followed by a number of republican wins in battleground areas across the country. for now reporting live on the art museum steps annie mccormick channel6 "action news." back to you. >> thanks annie. the markets prefer certainty an few days ago wall street seemed certain hillary clinton would be elected president. and then overnight investors were thrown a heartbreaking curve ball. maribel aber lie at the nasdaq in times square with how the elections are responding to the election of donald trump. >> reporter: good morning matt. donald trump's upset victory triggered a sharp selloff in
6:09 am
stocks overseas. the nikkei lost 5 percent of its values. as for here in the u.s. stocks are set to fall right at the open much futures are pointing to a drop of 327 points. it's actually an improvement as a results from key states trickled in last night. futures had pointed to a drop of 750 points. all this selling is tied to nervousness over a trump presidency. there's not a lot known about what economic policies he may enact in the white house. but matt whatever you do don't touch your 401k just yet. let this market settle take time to digest. >> time is always your friend in these situations. voters in new jersey had two constitutional amendments o ballot. voter said yes to requiring that every penny of the state's new gas tax be used exclusively for transportation cost. this dedicates money from the 23-cent hike towards bridge road construction and transit improvements. new jersey voters rejected expanding casino gambling beyond atlantic city. the ballot question asked whether to authorize the
