and east bay hills tonight through friday morning. gusty winds above 1,000 feet up to 60 miles per hour beginning tonight. we'll have more coming up. good morning. wednesday drive, starting off in santa clara with a crash south 880 at great mall parkway. one vehicle involved in this accident but injuries reported. you have fire crews on scene there. the on-ramp is blocked. still early for the morning drive. but as it progresses, las will be shut down we'll see some delays build behind it. traffic okay south 880 to 280. northbound 680 just past highway 4, reports of a vehicle fire looks like it is in flames all lanes stopped
right now momentarily. we are seeing red on our sensors which indicates traffic is really stacked up behind there. the car fire north 680 past 4 definitely could cause problems. business as usual through the altamont pass westbound 580 to 680 a crash at grant line. there are plenty of election -- sorry, there's plenty of election news this morning. democratic lieutenant governor gavin newsom will replace the termed out jerry brown as governor. he defeated republican businessman john cox 59-41%. he spoke to supporters last night at a post-election event in los angeles. >> you stood for courage. courage for a change. will have the incredible privilege of serving as your next governor. >> cox took the stage in san diego to concede and then
congratulate newsom. >> we gave it a run. we got the message out. we got the issues out. thank you all. thank you all. >> newsom's victory is the first time since 1887 that a democratic governor has been succeeded by another democrat in california. let's take a live look now at the u.s. capitol where for the first time in eight years, the democrats have won control of the u.s. house. this morning, the democrats hold 219 seats to the republicans'193. voters flipped more than 2 dozen seats that were held by republicans during yesterday's midterm elections. house minority leader nancy pelosi who represents cruised to victory. she celebrated democratic wins across the country. >> thanks to you, we owned the ground. thanks to you, tomorrow will be a new day in america.
remember this feeling. not power to win. >> and in just the past half- hour the white house said that president trump will hold a post-election news conference this morning. it is scheduled to start at 8:30. and now despite some big wins for democrats, reporter nikole killion tells us that republicans were able to extend their majority in the u.s. senate. >> that change came tonight. reporter: in a sign of what was to come, virginia democrat jennifer wexton defeated republican congresswoman barbara comstock in one of the first races called. it's one of more than two dozen seats flipped in yesterday's midterms that helped democrats take back the house. >> today is more than about democrats and republicans. it's about restoring the constitution checks and balance to the trump administration. >> reporter: moderate suburban districts helped push democrats over the edge like
in the texas senate. >> we have the power to change the direction of our country and that is what we are doing right now with this election with this race and i am so, so excited. >> reporter: republicans diminished the blue wave by increasing their majority in the senate. many like mike braun in indiana credited president trump. >> we as conservatives being led by president trump, we've got to prove why our way of thinking, why what works in the state of indiana, is going to work for the rest of america. >> reporter: the gop also took back senate seats in north dakota and missouri. >> congratulations, this is your victory tonight! it's your victory. you've earned it. >> reporter: despite the loss of the house, president trump tweeted, tremendous success tonight! nikole killion, cbs news, it'sa win infor e democrats
waing rterme elted offices, it looks like the democrats remained in control of california. from governor-elect gavin newsom down the ballot, democrats were big winners. as a matter of fact, it was hard to even see much opposition mounting here. as far as a blue wave goes, it was a blue tide in a blue state. donald trump was the issue. whether it was gavin newsom's television ads who said he had a message for the president or dianne feinstein's or kamala harris' resistance to the trump administration or most notably nancy pelosi's. what we have in california is that president trump was the issue even though he never stepped foot in the state. other wins for republicans, mitt romney winning the open seat in utah. marsha blackburn winning in tennessee and ted cruz beat
beto o'rourke in texas. arizona still too close to call. california senator dianne feinstein is celebrating a victory this morning. she defeated her opponent kevin de leon 54-46%. this will be her fifth full term in the senate. feinstein has represented california for 25 years. and in san jose, some last- minute voters got in line right at 8:00 to vote. they waited nearly 3 hours in line to cast their ballots. >> i think this is a very hard time to be in the american political arena. i think the country is very factionalized. they call it tribes. i grew up in political life and never heard of tribes. partworkarofingood
this nation, to make people more efficient and productive in their lives. that was all the politics. >> just hearing from senator dianne feinstein as she celebrated her victory. this is the first regular election that allowed conditional voter registration. it allowed voters to register and vote on the same day. but the last-minute stragglers paid the price. all day long, the line went out the door and people waited hours to vote. >> it is 8:17 now. i'm hearing that it's at least a two-hour wait. did you know that? >> yes. i know. >> reporter: are you okay with that? >> um, well, you know, i have to be because i really want to vote. >> i have been here for three hours with a torn meniscus but i have been here. >> i was sitting at home at 7:15 and i felt i should vote so i called and said as long as i was in line by 8:00 i could get in. so -- >> reporter: talk about pushing it to the mite
>> my ancestor'm afran- american, clearly, and they went through trying to get this right for me so it's important for me to vote every, single election because of all the they went through. >> now that word of conditional voter registration is out, it should be even busier for the 2020 election. and in san francisco, city hall saw a flood of voters who registered and cast their votes. this is the first time voters who missed the registration deadline could do so. >> you see there's a line, but it moves quickly. it was about 55 minutes at its longest point to get through. we have had hundreds of people in line. >> the san francisco department of elections says this will likely be the greatest turnout in a midterm election since 1974. now a look at some of the statewide ballot propositions. prop 10 would have repeated the state law that restricts local governments' use of rent control. that failed. supporters of prop 10 say they
are not giving up on their efforts to make rental housing more affordable in california. >> a flame was started and we are nowhere near putting it out. so this is a rallying cry to everyone around the state of california that we still have work to do. >> opponents say that prop 10 would have been done more harm than good. they believe it would have reduced the number of rental units when demand continues to grow. >> by far the majority of owners of properties that tenants occupied are small business owners. there's this misconception that they are the ones that would be devastated by prop 10. >> and prop 10 opponents outspent supporters by 3:1. voters shot down the proposition 6 repeal of the gas tax. 55% voted no on the effort to pull back funding for bay area road improvements and transportation funding. bothesrdthe "yes on 6" campaign
the decision came down to wording. leaders argued voters were intentionally tricked into voting no when they thought they were voting in favor of the tax repeal. >> they stuck a false and misleading title on the ballot that had no mention of gas tax repeal. in doing so, politicians lied to the voters. let me be clear. this ain't over. it ain't over by a long shot. >> and another ballot measure that had big money behind it, probably 8, seeking to regulate the profits of kidney dialysis centers, voters rejected that measure, 62% to 38%. and voters passed prop 7. it would allow california to consider staying on daylight saving time all year round. this morning prop c won by 60%. the san francisco biggest tech titans have been at war over
prop c. this measure taxes big homeless crisis in san francisco. >> well, what i'm so passionate about is that our homeless get the services and the homes that they need. that's what every homeless person, family, child in our city needs is a home. >> and we'll be updating you on more races all morning long. you can also find a full list of results on kpix.com.>>time n >> fire danger in the north bay. coming up this morning, pg&e preparing for another possible power-down. >> let's take a live look outside and see what it is looking like this morning. this is san francisco. we'll be right back.
