10:03 pm
we were going to see her, told we were going to see some performances but i think they might be holding off on that for now. but we have a lot of night to go as we stand by here in new york city. live at the javits center joyce evans reporting back to you guys in the studio. iain and lucy. >> joyce, we sure do have lot of night to go. fox news channel just called virginia for hillary clinton. we move up a few blocks from joyce techies o'connell at the trump party. >> chris, what's happening there? >> reporter: well, guys, very anxious and growing enthusiasm here at trump election night headquarters in midtown, manhattan. with every state that reveals itself on the big screen here, you either hear boos or you hear cheers depending on what result but i can tell you pretty much while every tv monitor here in the ballroom on fox news channel tonight. but i can tell you this night started out very quite for this crowd. but over the last hour or so,
10:04 pm
definitely seeing some growing enthusiasm especially as some of these results and polling numbers come in from some of these big swing states. we're in the ballroom of the midtown hilton where supporters and frankly mostly media here waiting to hear from donald trump. we just heard from ivanka trump who just tweeted out a picture of her and her family with her father watching election results come in. a roller coaster of emotions from hundreds of supporters here and really not one of the largest venues in new york city, of course, not one of the buildings that bears trump's name. i did talk with donald trump campaign operative just a few minutes ago and they say despite what all these polling numbers were saying, over the last week or so, they say they're not worth the paper they're printed on. they say as the results come in they are growing enthusiastic by the minute. anxious nerves continue here at trump election night headquarters.
10:05 pm
we'll bring you back here in little bit. guys. >> thank you very much, chris o'connell. we're all over this presidential race has been a fierce battle to the end. but we have a lot of critical election news tonight. we're watching race for pennsylvania senate seat very closely this evening. >> that is the race between incumbent republican pat toomey and democratic challenger katie mcginty. bruce gordon is here to break down more on that, bruce. >> reporter: so far, guys, this thing is looking pretty good for katie mcginty. the numbers the raw numbers we have right now just over 700,000 votes for the democratic challenger. less than 500,000 votes for the republican incumbent. let's take look at where some of that number is coming from and where it's not yet coming from. philadelphia right now about 60% of the precincts in. the massive margin you would expect. this is about a four-one ratio about 80/20 race. three hun drone cities to us its thousand votes in philadelphia. no big surprise. a tiny percentage of vote in bucks county right now. more or less even.
10:06 pm
no big surprise there that's what happened in 2012 at the presidential level. also, in chester county, again, tiny percentage in. more or less even numbers here around 2,000 votes for each of the candidates. delaware county, about 18th 12% of the vote in. mcginty over toomey 16,000 to just under 15,000 what may have her folks most excited of all and that is montgomery county. why do i say that? nothing reported in yet for some reason. so that is a county that we know in 2012 the democrats did very well in. and so she would expect to pick up lots of votes a big vote margin in montgomery county and so far not a bit of it has been counted. by the way out here in allegheny county, pittsburgh, you would expect the democrat to do well. about 18th of the vote in and she is winning there 161,000 to 98,000 or so. and so at this point it looks like a very good evening for katie mcginty. again, lots of folks still to be counted but she's doing well where she needs to be and in
10:07 pm
other areas where she would he she would be expected to do well not much of the numbers are in. one quick note on the presidential races, we said earlier in this evening that everything starts out with a baseline. well n2012, the republican par party, that is mitt romney, got 206 electoral votes needs to pick up 64 extras does donald trump. well he may very well pick them up in florida and ohio. but he needs more than that. and that call a couple of minutes ago of virginia going to clinton when mr. trump led for most of the evening is huge for the democrats. that sound you hear that's a sigh of relief coming out virginia fort clinton camp guys. >> all right, bruce, thanks for the enzyme be back to you later in the newscast. from the moment the polls opened voters all over our area saw long lines. those lines did not let up tonight. skyfox was over just a few of the polling locations that experienced high voter turnout including west philadelphia. collegeville and gilbertsville. polls closed at 8:00 if you were in line your votes counts and
10:08 pm
the polling place would not close until you cast it. >> we've got to say it is hard to overstate the importance of what bruce gordon was just talking about. not just for pennsylvanians but for the nation. democratic nominee katie mcginty challenging republican incumbent pat toomey. you heard from bruce. this is a good so far for mcginty. so far 56 to 40%. not all precincts are reporting but so far mcginty looks strong in this race against incumbent pat toomey. local race that all over the country are paying close attention to because it's close and contentious race for the pennsylvania seat in that us senate. >> all about balance of power, right. mcginty is hoping to snatch it from toomey. jeff cole is live in at mcginty's headquarters. all right, jeff, what a race and the candidate you're with has got to be happy so far. >> reporter: yeah, well, here's what i think it's balanced here. they do have a sense that obviously mcginty is doing quite well but they're very frankly worried about hillary clinton at this point across the country.
10:09 pm
now, they figure here that if clinton would do well mcginty would do well that clinton's voters would pull mcginty with them. but i must tell you the democratic state chair was up here a moment ago and when i asked him how he was doing we're doing well in philadelphia it we've been able to get the votes out that they thought they could. he said but they're doing really well in those areas down, say, where they expected to. actually what's happening behind me a state senator leach will talk about results a little bit here b we listen to him and trying to figure out what he has to say let's listen into governor wolf we spoke to just few minutes earlier. we asked about him donald trump. >> he said stuff that would scuttle any candidate or any campaign. i think there's real frustration out there, and i think people are reaching out grasping for straws. >> reporter: so that's wolf talking about trump earlier
10:10 pm
saying, boy, so many things he said would knock any other candidate out but trump is clearly doing well tonight. so far here, cautiously optimistic to you something said a lot mcginty will win this. real concern here at the sheraton in philadelphia for hillary clinton. i'm live. i'm jeff cole, back to you. >> either way you cut it it's a historic night. absolutely. >> pat toomey is watching the race close until lehigh county. that's where he voted tonight a few hours ago. >> fox 29's shawnette wilson live in senator toomey's watch party. shawnette. >> reporter: so far i can tell you tonight it has been a very low key, writ key tee quite watch party here. we're told that pat toomey is in the building. he is somewhere watching these results come in. privately but meanwhile, a lot of his supporters gathered very few of them actually up close watchly the results come in. they're postally talking amongst themselves we have supporters come to the microphone they
10:11 pm
believe this has been unfair campaign for him n a lot of things that were said about toomey were not true. they were very disappointed in some of the attack ads against him. meanwhile we caught up with toomey after he voted earlier this evening. here's what he had to say about the campaign that he's run. >> i am grateful for the unbelievable number of volunteers who worked so hard to help me in this campaign. this is a campaign about changing the direction that we've been in. >> reporter: and again, that was pat toomey talking after he voted earlier today. so again we're here at the watch party just waiting to hear from him at some point tonight. we imagine that will be very late as those results become more deaf. back to you. >> thank you much, shawnette. check back in little bit. coverage of election night 2016 continues all night long, of course. not only are we watching the race for the white house we're watching many other races right now. >> including the race for pennsylvania senate as we talked about with bruce gordon and jeff cole. katie mcginty so far looking
10:12 pm
goolooking inthat race against t pat toomey. as we leave you here's a live look at clinton election headquarters. our coverage continues right after this. //www.evertz.com>[a5]
10:13 pm
♪ you decide 2016. the improbable election of improbable elections. any way you cut it it's history in the making. let's listen to schep smith at the fox -- >> up shot since way before the first debate. before the first debate he might have been up a little bit. he's not been up at all and she's been largely leading in the 80s to 90s% we're looking at the possibility of republican house, a republican senate and donald trump in the white house.
10:14 pm
it is a possibility right this minute. >> that's obviously the best case scenario for him. >> for republicans. >> yeah. >> some of them. >> interesting going back i think for the last couple of days we've been saying that the comey letter didn't really have too much effect on clinton's numbers but it actually took all the wind out of the sales of the democrats trying to take the house and senate back. now we see tonight it actually probably had an effect on her as well. >> nevada will be big for us in little while there's no question about it. donald trump had filed a suit out in clark county in nevada where harry read's machine was able to bring lot of mainly hispanic voters to the polls. the polls closed at 7:30 but if you're line in time you get to keep going. they went three hours passed the time donald trump entered an order of sorts to keep up with these votes. so that we can look at this later. the judge ruled we already keep up with this we don't have to do that. no scene improprieties so far nevada will be that close and our jonathan hunt is live in las vegas the polls have closed.
10:15 pm
john nan, what's the mood there. >> reporter: well, certainly the energy in this room where republican party headquarters victory party as they call it, schep, has picked up in terms of energy. since the polls closed just a few minutes ago. it is as our decision desk you've been saying still too close to call. both on -- >> you've license listening to fox broadcast center many back here the control of congress definitely something we are discussing tonight. of course of house seat is up also a third of the senate. let's check in with bruce gordon again. bruce? >> guys, it could be rather late in the evening before we know the situation in the house of representatives, but we have a little better sense of what's going on in the u.s. senate. we know that 34 of 100 seats are up for grabs. we know that 24 of those 34 seats are held by republicans, meaning the ones playing defense. they start the evening with 54-46 margin of control in the us senate. let's take look at the big race we've been focusing on all night. katie mcginty the democratic challenger, pat toomey the
10:16 pm
republican income ban as we stand right now mcginty with well over 200,000 vote margin. so obviously that's good news for her. let's see where these numbers are coming from. well, we know that philadelphia is about 80% four out of every five votes counted so far. the margin is what you could expect. 400,000 to 100,004 to one ratio that is huge and that is what is moving and that's the engine behind what's going on right n now. so pennsylvania looks like it could be a pick up for the democrats. they picked up a seat in illinois, have the democrats but the republican have held elsewhere in places like indiana, ohio and florida. so the democrats idea of taking control of the senate in peril at this timely republicans may well hang on to the senate, gu guys. >> bruce, thank you very much for that analysis and insight. let's get check of the u.s. house district. donald norcross not really a price there it wins over paterson 59 to 37% in us house
10:17 pm
district in new jersey. and meantime, tom mccarthy winning 66% right now over frederick laverne in house district three in new jersey. >> even though we're still waiting on the final results some people are already breathing a sigh of relieve. >> a lot of people voted this morning and spent the day thankful that this is almost over. it's been 595 days. >> yes. >> hank flynn spent the day with some of them. >> today it's hang and it's election day all the bad blood, all the dopey politicking and the stupid squabbles that you've been having on social media with your friends, that's over, right? no. johnny, the not over. it's never over! >> it's not over. >> no, it's not over. >> it's never really over. [ laughter ] >> i ran into don rows at the whiskey tango bar in somerton he voted for trump because he doesn't like the forecast. >> i think we're going to get
10:18 pm
worse. much worse. [ laughter ] >> i already heard medical will go up. so with obama care, i'm paying out the butt. >> i hoped election day would bring trump and clinton voters together after a long ugly year. at the beer spot they told me fat chance. if trump loses it kicks off a whole new chapter of nasty. >> they are going to blame everybody it's a conspiracy it was rigged. a lot of issues. >> did you vote? >> you did vote today. >> i hated to leave but it was becoming clear it would take more than election day to ease the pain of an ugly cap pain. >> the last place i hit was the german tavern on mark street the bartender neal actually political science major he says it may be over but it's going to take a really strong president. >> i would say like to say tomorrow morning whoever is elected will look at the landscape of the country and
10:19 pm
realize that the only way forward is to come back together whether or not that will happen we'll have to wait and see. >> reporter: stories in bars. i may be on to something there. any way, if you have the solution to politically divided america, well, maybe you should be president. but hit us on twitter first at hank fox 29 or the house at fox 29 philly. ♪ >> i know a whole lot of people doing what hank is doing right there. all right. let's take a look. attorney general race in pennsylvania and josh shapiro 60% of the vote there. again john rafferty with 40% of the vote. let's go on over to district two of course you'll know this. chaka fattah old seat and dwight evans no surprise here. the democrat 93% beating jones with 7%. here's live look at trump election headquarters tonight. we are continuing with our coverage. more right after this.

♪ in california the polls closed at 11:00 o'clock our time that is when the presidential race could be called although it could not be. it couldn't a long night. some states are closer than we thought. here's video from voters casting their ballots in southern california. tragedy near two los angeles polling locations a gunman shot and killed a man and injured two women that gunman is also dead. we've got breaking news coming in from fox news right now. they are calling the house of representatives for the gop remaining firmly in the hands of gop. that's not a real big surprise. but bruce, you're watching some things on that electoral map and explain to us because there's a lot -- my phone is blowing up with text messages from people going wagon what is going on. >> a lot of mashing of teeth and hang ringing here's what we need to do to put things in the context. 31 states called so far this evening. and each and everyone of those states played out exactly the
10:38 pm
way it did in 2012. now you remember in 2012, the democrats produced through barack obama and his re-election bid 332 electoral votes. the republicans 206. you need 270 to win. so what does that say to you? well the republicans that is donald trump need to find 64 additional electoral votes. that is to say they've got to win everything they won in 2012 plus they need 64 extra electoral votes. where might those come from one of the things we know already is that the state of ohio has been called for donald trump. that is 18 electoral votes that they did not get back in 2012. so that is a pick up of 18 electoral votes. florida still too close to call. that would be 29 electoral votes were he to get that. that's why we said the big victory for democrats in the state of virginia which fox news has now called for hillary
10:39 pm
clinton was big. virginia was a state that went for the democrats in 2012. had the republicans been able to flip it it would have been huge, would have gotten donald trump that much closer to the extra 64 electoral votes he needed. without that, it becomes a much more narrow road to hoe. just so you know, a lot of discussion tonight about donald trump winning north carolina. will he, won't gentlemen if he were to win that it would obviously be great news for the trump campaign but would it not reflect an actual gain because the republicans took north carolina back in 2012. so, again, trump needs to do everything romney did four years ago plus he's got to pick up some extra states to the point route now only ohio has been an actual pick up for donald trump. we'll see how this mays out but, again, that's the context from what we have seen so far, guys. >> nice insight there, bruce, thanks. pennsylvanians are not just voting on candidates tonight also on the ballot whether to allow more than 1,000 appelate county and district judges to remain in their jobs until the
