>> the last time i looked there were 1500 votes in play and that is not very much. that can move back and forth easily. i would rather be 1% behind and finish the winner than 1% behind and finish the loser. >> i know we can't say what exactly is going to happen yet. we have awhile to go while the votes -- while they are counting all of the votes. it is going to take some time before we know. i think we need to take this moment to honor this journey we have all taken. >> meantime, sam lacardo was celebrating the early lead with his volunteers and supporters. he is backed by the current mayor as well as past mayors and cortezi the support of labor, police and fire unions. they vow to make public safety their top priority. lisa amin gulezian, abc7 news. >> now to the mayor's race in

place votes are coming from. those are the votes that won it four years ago. another deciding factor could be the 6,000 to 7,000 mail in ballots that will be counted in the following days. because this is such a close race most are not expecting to see a winner emerge until thursday or even later. you probably won't see these candidates day claire victory at all to nate. reporting live in oakland, alan wang, abc7 news. >> it will take some time. thank you. now to the governor's race and it wasn't even close and it wasn't expected to be. jerry brown was re-elected. jay he defeated kashkari. >> laura anthony is live in sacramento. >> hi, dan. 76-year-old jerry brown is still inside behind me. he has been there for about an

changes to our state. >> now we are told that neil kashkari called the governor after the polls closed to concede and offer his congratulations. he thanked his supporters and promised he would be back saying he is just starting out in politics. asked what his plan is for the next four-year term and brown said he would concentrate on his primary themes of the past weeks and months. it has saved money and it is to save water. being a four-timer he is well aware that being governor of california is, quote, no picnic. laura anthony, aby7 news. >> thank you, laura. >> they ripped control of the u.s. senate from the democrats. >> the gop needed six seats and they got seven. the kentucky senator mick mcconnell is expected to be the majority leader. the republicans maintain
control of the house giving the party full control of congress. the gop added 12 seats tonight. if the republicans gain one more it will be the largest house majority since the great depression. >> and the congressional race in the south bay has attracted national attention. >> it really has the democrat versus democrat. millions are spent on advertising. >> long-time congressman challenged. r-election launch party in mill -- in mill pea -- milpides. >> he says he is not ready to declare victory. he wants to wait longer for the results, but he wants to make sure his supporters are enthusiastic. he has been leading for a few percentage points. you have to keep in mind that this election, the 17th congressional district covers two counties, both santa clara and alameda counties. two registrars are providing the results and it takes more
time to get those results in. supporters -- let's roll some videotape and show you what has been going on here earlier. the supporters were patient and quiet as they waited for the congressman to step forward and greet them. they were snacking on hot food and enjoying wine and beer. many worked the phones to get out the vote. across town in santa clara county they also enjoyed food and drink and plenty of loud music to keep enthusiasm up. they rallied behind a man who never held office and received the support from high-tech executives. now you can see shaking of hands and he hinted that there may be a couple more hours until he feels confident that the results come in and he can decide whether he has won this race and whether he has not. it depends on whether he is going back to washington for an 8th term in congress.
