tv CBS2- This Morning CBS November 9, 2016 6:00am-7:00am CST
campaign is over...the while the campaign is over, our work on this movement is now really just beginning. >> welcome to cbs 2 this morning you just heard donald trump there, now the 45th president of our united states. this race poured into the early morning hours before an official call was made, but just before 2 this morning, hillary clinton called dona trump to concede defeat. let's take a quick look at the numbers. donald trump won with 289 electoral votes and hillary clinton got just 218. some states have still yet to be officially called, but trump has passed that 270 threshold needed to clench the presidential race. donald trump won the state of iowa with 53% of the votes here, and of the 2.1 million iowa voters about 1.5 million voted in this election.
about 73% and that's about the same number who voted in the 2008 election. welcome to cbs is 2 this morning. we're going to get back to these election results including reaction from both winners and losers of last nights races in just a second but first, justin roberts has our forecast. >> chilly start to our day. temps this morning in the 20s and 30s take a look where we are headed the next few hours and we'll find a 50s around lunch time and lower 60s the afternoon. nice sunny sky, beautiful start to an otherwise chilly morning in our city of five seasons, down to 31 degrees now with a clear sky definitely want to take the jacket with you. 28 charles city, waterloo, 35 iowa city, monticello says 30, 36 dubuque and 36 washington.
miles an hour, and that wind will eventually turn west and southwest by the later afternoon and evening, satellite and radar is a clear one and that is how it stays the next few days, high pressure in control which means nice quiet calm weather. 44 this morning at 9:00, 56 at noon and 59 this afternoon your full weather first foreclose including what to plan on for the rest of the week and weekend coming up in about 10 minutes time. >> as you probably know by now president of the united states and during his victory speech last night or early this morning in new york city he vowed to be a president for all americans. trump was also gracious toward his opponent hillary clinton. >> i've just received a call from secretary clinton. >> pause pause.
about us on our victory and i congratulated her and her family on a very very hard fought campaign. i mean, she fought very hard. hillary has worked very long and very hard over a long period of time and we owe her a major debt of gratitude for her service to our country. i mean that very sincerely. >> here is a break down of how each state voted in this presidential election. trump won with 289 electoral votes compared to 218 with hillary clinton. president trump needed big wins in many swing states and won in states like florida, o higho pennsylvania, north carolina, all red. this is a look at how the state of iowa voted in the presidential election.
43%. trump will be inaugurated as the 45th president on friday, january 20 and we are joined with cbs news anchor kevin berry here to talk and give us deeper analysis into this election. >> reporter: heading into the primary season for the republican side when they had the field that was 17 candidates wide this was really them shifting back in the other direction from the at least the past two years, 2008 and 2012 when it was the idea of line, so january mccane in 2008, mitt romney in 2012. the main problem with those two candidates is that they weren't conservative enough for the right wing conservative side of the party so john mccane needed some help that's why they went out and got sarah palin. mitt romney needed help so they went out and got paul ryan to bring in that ultra con is serve a ever side and the problem was they still didn't like them. they didn't come out and vote for them.
year that if only we could put forward ted cruz and for once and for all settle this debate about is our problem that we're not picking the conservative candidate enough or we aren't bringing enough under the tent when donald trump came in he completely and totally changed the game. suddenly they weren't talking about social conservatism versus mainstream conservatism. they were trying to hold on for the ride so this is what's so shocking about it is that ted cruz got pushed to the de much harder for him to win potentially in eight years now, if donald trump gets re-elected after four years, but this is kind of turn the whole idea of the republican party trying to reinvent itself on its head now because they were in the middle of this ideological and religious versus fiscal debate with themselves and now donald trump has gone off and won himself the white house, kind of from the outside and not
to kind of thumb his nose at the party and now he's bringing that party with him to the white house and they have to figure out exactly what that means. we talked about before how they have to look at this map and how they were successful in winning the white house and study that and figure out how they did it so they can move forward and figure out exactly who is in this party. one last night we were talking to republican operatives and they were saying what donald trump has shown them is that the republican party didn't wanted. donald trump was able to figure it out better than anybody else in the gop, able to exploit it and become president and now it's time for the gop to follow his lead we'll see how that goes and we're going to take a look at one of the highly contested races in the first congressional district in iowa. rebubbaly can incumbent rod plum was up for his lister reelection bid and he defeated
congressman plum gave a fiery victory speech following that race. >> and hillary clinton decided one. nats of cheers." cheers."congressman blum also said this win was espeically important to him - since his challenger targeted him since he was first elected into the house.monica vernon says she needs to take time off to figure out what she'll do next. monica 02:24:55 "i'm going to continue to work on respecting all of us, i want to see all there are lots of ways to work on that. i had hoped to do that in us congress and i'll find other ways." moving on to another house seat that was up for grabs - other ways. >> moving on to another house seat up for grabs in the second congressional district in iowa voters elected dave lobe sack to his sixth term peteing dr. christopher peters to 54% to 46%. in the u.s. senate iowa's longest serving senator has
a seventh term. chuck grassley cruised to a victory over patty judge winning 60% of the vote throughout the state. grassley was encouraged by how this election turned out for his party. >> at this pivotal time in our but for these little ones." voters across the country voted for an entirely g-o-p needed to flip five seats to gain control of the senate - controlled america. democrats needed to flip five seats to gain control of the senate but they failed to do that. republicans regained control of the senate holding on to at least 51 of the 100 seats, one new hampshire race is still too close to call but right now republican kelly aot is in the lead and political party kevin
this senate balance is staying with the republicans. >> reporter: let's talk about new hampshire. that's a super interesting race we've been following all night long so kelly aot is the sitting republican senator she's been there obviously for six years up in new hampshire the sitting governor whose a democrat is trying to run against her and trying to undoes seat her. that race still hasn't been called yet and it's 6:00 central time the next morning. so that' is coming down to but they both have really good stances within their party and someone like kelly aot is considered a conservative and established republican but also broken with her party to back some of the measures that president obama has put forward on clean air and things like that because of the way the air works up or not the way the air works but the way that the environment is up in the american northeast, the polluted air coming over from
new hampshire so she had clearance from her own party to break with the gop and side with the democrats which is generally not something you'll see in washington d.c. right now so that's a really interesting race and its been down to the wire the most recent numbers we are seeing they are still processing at 95% and kelly aot has a slight slight advantage. there's 330,000 votes cast for the two of them and they are separated by less than votes. >> like a .2%. >> so that's what we are dealing with right now but that's a super interesting race we've had our eye one and both of them is have really great records so it's just a really cool race to watch. something else we've been watching too was a race that we knew was going to go democrat early on was mark kirk was the incumbent in illinois. he lost to tammy duckworth tonight. he had this really bad instance on a debate stage where it was just a complete and total gash
across as offensive to tammy duckworth. she said she was a daughter of the american revolution and kirk mocked that. she is a daughter of the american revolution and has descendents who fought back then and she herself is a double amputee from injuries she had fighting overseas in the middle east and so really, kind of picked a poor target there. he got slobbered there. she won 54% of the vote and he only pulled in 40.2 and so that's an idea of how democrats were really hopeful about seat. they were hoping to leverage that into other seats. they did hold harry reed's seat. he was the majority leader before 2012. he's retiring so he just said i'm out, so his seat became vulnerable but democrats were able to hold on to it tonight but those were really the only bright spots almost across the entire country. clearly the presidential campaign didn't work out so well for them either they were
it looks like they made up but they weren't able to get that 51st seat. >> kevin will stay with us throughout the morning but right now we'll look at an update on an important issue we've been monitoring this whole election for you. three judges up for retention on the iowa supreme court this is the first time these three judges were on the ballot since their landmark ruling legalizing same sex marriage here in iowa. all three judges have been retained by voters. all with at least vote. lynn county sheriff brian gardner remains as the head of his department, nearly three quarters of lynn county chose to keep him as sheriff. his opponent rick stuart took home 26% of the votes. voters in lynn county also made history as they elected the first african american to the board of supervisor in its 177 years. democrat stacey walker says he tried hard not to make this
walker defeated republican adam jensen by nearly 5,000 votes and while walker celebrated that victory another issue on the ballot means supervisors like himself will have to work harder. voters approved a plan to reduce the number of board members from five to just three. >> that means that residents in the county will have less people representing their interests. it's also going to mean our rural communities aren't going to have as much the table so i think we really got to work hard the three supervisors have to roll up their sleeves and work hard and hopefully revisit this issue in the future. >> walker says the work is just beginning to make lynn county more prosperous. he also wants to engage more people to help him bring about positive change. it is now 6:14, good wednesday morning to you, if you're in fairfax it is 34 degrees. washington d.c. could soon be
some minimum wage laws are changing and new laws on hunting are just a few of the other things voted on last night we'll give you all those details. mother nature says i'm taking the week off so she's going to loaf it on auto pilot which we don't think you'll mind. take a look at where we are now 30s in the north even 20s out there a chilly is start to a sunny day, we'll be in the 50s by noon, forecast is darien: why have the latest smartphone if you can't use it wherever you go? switch to u.s. cellular for our best plan yet: 7 gigs of data per line for only $49. to share more photos at your cabin or video chat at your secret fishing spot...

a measure with a host of gun control rules, including a background check system to buy amunition. washington approved a measure to let judges take guns from people with mental illness or violent behavior in the evergreen state and police family or household members must make that request. gun control measures also in the hands of voters in maine and nevada, those still too close to tell right now in what is happening with those measures. voters in kansas and indiana fish and harvest wildlife. last night, voters chose to amend each states constitution, supporters say that the vote was vital to protecting them from special interest groups trying to restrict their hunting. five states voted on whether or not to legalize recreational marijuana. california, massachusetts, and nevada all voted to legalize the drug, doubling the amount of states where you can buy it. arizona voters rejected that

leading with trump on the chicago tribune website their headline is donald trump elected 45th president, urges americans to come together as one united people and the new york daily newspaper, their headline today is house of horrors with the background of the white house and united states flag turned upside down at mid flag so that's what the newspapers are saying social media also has lots to say but for right now this is what's going on right now so back to you. >> i'm sure plenty more coming out by the end of the day, thank you stephanie. and good morning to you it is now 6:47 this morning, if you're in waiverly it's 32 degrees, just ahead we're updating the most important stories you need to know to start your morning, here is a
races this morning - and state we're still tracking local races this morning, and state senator liz mathis is waking up with a win right now. last night voters re-elected her to senate district 34. she and opponent renee gadelha battled over that seat, clearly seen in television adds. mathiis s went home with 56% of that vote, however her win could not keep the state senate in the blue. last night, majority leader lost his re- election battle, mike gronstal lost his seat to newcomer dan dawson that loss among other senate turnovers gave republican party control over the iowa senate and now cbs 2 news anchor host of iowa focus kevin berry is back to talk to us about what that change means for our voters. >> there are two big legislative pieces we've been following and there will be many more they take up in the
that we've seen in lynn county and johnson county and its been handed out in polk county is the minimum wage so far the other one is primarily based in des moines but it's about water quality, so from minimum wage lynn and johnson county already voted to raise their minimum wage over the course of the next few years, right after that happened though, a few other counties followed suit and governor said publicly that he thought it was time to address this on a statewide level which means he would want the state ledge us leachour to come in and either keep the wage where it higher, with the understanding that it wouldn't hurt any businesses. that was his stipulation but that his twitter account came out and specified he's not favoring a higher minimum wage. what this means though is since democrats have lost the state senate, that it's an all republican state senate it is much less likely to entertain the idea of raising a minimum wage and if they were to raise it to try to get some of these other counties much less likely
democrats would like and there's very little those democrats would be able to do. on water quality really both parties have had a problem with this but it will be interesting to see how it plays out now that you have both chambers controlled by the same party, because last go around the governor tried to take money from kind of one part of education, it was going to take additional money from education an put it towards water quality and even the republicans through that out and they came forward with their own issue or their own bill. mike granstal just lost his seat so the democrats need new minority leadership in the state senate so now we'll see if water quality has cleared itself a path to potentially be taken care of in 2017 but now the republicans own both chambers of congress and may be a little bit or both chambers of the state house and may be a little bit easier for governor's initiatives to get through once they get back in session in january. >> it's definitely an interesting couple of years now
especially for iowa. >> absolutely for iowa and on the national level as well republicans are given a lot of this power, they've been criticized as being the party of the obstructionist for a long time and now they are in the drivers seat so to speak so we'll see what happens now. >> absolutely. all we can do is watch, right? and meanwhile the house remains in republican control that wasn't expected to swing into democrat control as kevin told us earlier, however the senate changed the iowa chambers as was mentioned. still, democrats are waking up to a win this morning north liberty mayor amy neilton won her bid for the iowa house and the city will have to select a new mayor or hold a special election to finish out her current term. it is now 6:53 on this wednesday morning good morning to you, if you are in dike it's 32 degrees a clear day for you,
here are the three stories you need to know to start your here are the three stories you need to know before starting your day today. donald trump will be our next president. he won the presidential election overnight taking 289 electoral votes to hillary clintons 218. he will now become the 45th president of the u.s. january when he's inaugurated on the 20th. republicans not only took the white house but they also remained in control of the senate. the power struggle has left the gop with at least 51 senate seats and the democrats now only have 47. chamber. before even the presidential race was called, the g-o-p gained control. this morning - 235 members are repbulicans and 191 are
