11:00 pm
dream it's not binary, everyday we show how human endeavor can be both lucrative and inclusive. they aren't mutually exclusive. we don't just want success in the right hands. we want it in everybody's hands. but let's be honest, there's no doubt about this, the dream is still too distant for too many. we're a land of plenty but we are far from perfect. too many californians are being priced out of housing, health care, and higher education. too many workers are feeling the ever tightening squeeze of automation and wage stagnation. too many children are growing up in poverty and starting school from behind. in many ways and many places we are simultaneously the richest and the poorest state. but after traveling california from region to region in a bus fueled by perpetual optimism i'm more convinced than ever there's
11:01 pm
no problem in california that isn't somehow, somewhere being solved by a californian. >> back out here live tonight in downtown los angeles, you can see the gavin newsom party continues. certainly not what it was earlier when it was shoulder to shoulder in this area. so many people cheering newsom on earlier this evening when he spoke quite the moment out there. especially after the speech when his kids came on stage they were waving out to the crowd. now you heard it within that speech there. there were several jabs taken at the president. president trump going into this and during this whole campaign he has made it known gavin newsom that is that he is the resistance to president trump. he said the hard work starts tomorrow and the best is yet to come. reporting live in los angeles jr stone, kron4 news. >> thank you for that report.
11:02 pm
there are 11 propositions voters are deciding on tonight. >> i remember studying all of these before i went in to vote. joining us is grant lotis who's been tracking all of the major propositions. >> i remember studying them all too. quite a bit to get through. a lot of money on the line here for californians. and we do have two final results. we know one passed, we know one failed. run through them all right now for you pretty quickly. proposition 1 would fund existing affordable housing programs which would benefit veterans, farm workers, and others. as you can see right now that is passing. we have about 34% of precincts reporting by the way. proposition 2 would take existing money intending to help people with mental health issues and streamline it to pay for housing for those with mental illness who are homeless and
11:03 pm
that is passing overwhelmingly right now. proposition 3 would provide billions of dollars to fund environmental and water projects. the no vote is so far leading on that so standby there. proposition 4 would use bond money to build, expand, and renovate children's hospitals. that is looking in good shape that is passing currently. proposition five would provide a property tax break to homeowners over the age of 55 and select others if you have a significant disability, something like that who are moving into a different home, it would basically give them a property tax break and voters are saying no, we do not want that. prop six this is the big one. one of the big ones. it would get rid of the 2017 gas and vehicle tax. you see the no vote there is leading and we have just learned
11:04 pm
that the associated press is calling this race so the gas tax that is on the books will remain on the books. so that is a significant development right now. prop seven, this is the proposition that would allow the state legislature with a 2/3 majority and approval from the feds to change daylight saving time. the yes vote here is leading in a significant margin. proposition 8 would regulate kidney dialysis companies. we have seen a lot of ads about this one. this was the proposition that had the most money spent on it. dialysis companies pouring in about $110 million to defeat this proposition and it appears that all of that money and all of that effort is successful. we're not calling this, no one
11:05 pm
is calling this. but again that's a pretty significant no vote on calling this. but again that's a pretty significant no vote on prop 8 the dialysis proposition. proposition ten has failed. this has been called. it was an effort to repeal a state law that limits the rent control laws that cities and counties can impose. again that will not happen. prop 11 would require private balance companies to have their emt's be on duty and available for emergencies while they're on their meal breaks or their rest breaks. and it appears that this is in good shape. it is passing currently. proposition 12 has passed. this one has been called. prop 12 will require egg laying hens, breeding pigs, and cavs raised for veal to have more space. so also afford them other luxuries. but again this one has passed. so if you want to check out all
11:06 pm
of the propositions and where things stand as we go has those results. they're also on the bottom of your screen but if you want to do a little bit more in depth is a great resource tonight and always. >> there was a lot of discussion that people were surprised that a couple of these were even on the ballot like the dialysis one and the one about the ambulance workers. they seem to be issues that didn't really fall under something that citizens should be voting on. >> it used to be that you would focus on candidates in elections. and who was running for what and it seems as though in recent years these state propositions have taken on a life of their own. there were 17 last time. we started with 12 down to 11. but if you can't get it through the state legislature, certainly
11:07 pm
it's more expensive to do it this way but if you can't get it through in sacramento this is a way and organizations, companies, who have a lot of money can do what they want. and on the dialysis one, that is a billion dollar industry and if that had passed, i mean it's still not called. but it's looking like it will be defeated and these dialysis companies they had to eliminate this proposition from passing because they would have effectively probably had to pack up shop in california and dialysis treatment is a huge industry not only in this state but throughout the country. >> and the unions put that on the ballots. >> absolutely. >> grant, thank you. >> you got it. let's move on to the u.s. senate race with senator feinstein facing a challenge from state senator kevin deleon. it has been declared that diane feinstein is the winner and will serve another six-year term which will take her up to close
11:08 pm
to the age of 90 when she finishes that term. >> we're standing by live at her election party. dan, you talked with her a little while ago? >> reporter: that's right. this election party is winding down here but the crowd very excited when the associated press and other agencies declared her the winner. feinstein came out and addressed her supporters at 9:15 saying she was very humbled by being sent back after first being sent to washington in 1992. >> i just want you to know that this is the greatest honor in my life to represent my city and my state in the senate of the united states. and i want -- >> feinstein didn't really go on specifically criticizing president trump by name but
11:09 pm
talked about the political divide and how things have changed since she was first elected to the u.s. senate. >> this is a very hard time to be in the american political arena. i think the country is very factionalized, i grew up in political life and never heard of tribes, i heard of parties, i heard of parties working together, i heard of passing good legislation to integrate this nation to make people more efficient and productive in their lives and that was always the politics and the legislation that i understood and participated in. >> feinstein says she's still committing to getting the work done. she says that there is a benefit to having her seniority, the lead democrat on the judiciary committee on the appropriations committee, she said that's good for california with its economy
11:10 pm
getting california money. she pledged to do her best these next several years. she had indicated during the campaign that if the democrats were to take over at least one of the two houses of congress that they should be able to be more successful than they have been in the last two years. that has happened and so we'll just have to wait and see if that rings true and comes true. that's the latest reporting live where feinstein supporters are wrapping up with her victory. >> again as you said diane feinstein at the end of this six-year term she'll be 91-years old. and she's as feisty as ever. >> yeah nobody can doubt her quickness or sharpness or mental acuity. she's on top of her game. in addition to the big stories in california a lot of major election outcomes taking place across the country. >> congress, the governors
11:11 pm
races, the senate. >> you know at this point that house democrats expected to pick up plenty of seats meaning they will seize control from the republicans after eight years. and republicans easily hanging on to control of the senate. meantime republicans fended off strong democratic challenges to hold on to the governorships of florida, ohio, iowa, in florida republican ron desantis defeated democrat andrew gillum and won the governor's race and just a short time ago he thanked president trump. >> finally i would like to thank our president for standing by me when it wasn't necessarily the smart thing to do. mr. president, i look forward to working with you to advance florida's priorities. i think you're going to get tired of me calling you asking for things for florida. but i think we'll have a great partnership. >> president trump also saying thank you and he tweeted
11:12 pm
tremendous success tonight thanking people. meantime gillum the mayor of tallahassee was hoping to become florida's first african america governor. he told supporters earlier tonight he would continue to fight for what they believe in. and also this was a surprise to some, the race for governor in georgia apparently that is too close to call. might be headed for a runoff. a lot of people thought democrat stacey abrams was out of it. she was trailing republican brian kemp but she's still hoping to be the first black woman elected governor in the country. back to you. >> catherine union live in the newsroom with the latest on that. this blue wave we have been hearing about for the last couple of weeks or longer not quite a full tsunami and maybe not even a big wave maybe more like a ripple. but the big prize for all of this in the democrats is they did regain the house. >> yeah. as we head to break we want to show you the results of some of the measures on the santa clara county ballot.
11:13 pm
0 (pam) it looks like
11:14 pm
oakland's incumbent mayor libbby schaaf has won re-election ..(ken)
11:15 pm
schaaf is running against nine othe it looks like libby shaft has won re-election. there were ten people running including shaft in this race. nine people trying to take her job. there was even discussion of trying to build some relationships between candidates as happened with kwon when she won in her race for mayor. but it seems that libby shaft will survive and move on for another term as mayor of oakland. >> that's what you would call a healthy lead at that point. let's go live to oakland with the campaign staff for libby shaft. >> reporter: it's a very exciting night here the incumbent mayor seems comfortable and confident tonight. she's led the pack since the beginning of the race and the
11:16 pm
gap continues to widen. she's been way ahead but her campaign manager tells me she will not be claiming that win until all votes have been counted. since starting her re-election campaign mayor shaft said she wasn't taking anything for grant and had sure enough she was out on the streets today talking to voters up until the very last minute volunteers were busy on the phones urging people to vote. she took over at a time when the oakland police department was dealing with a slew of sex scandals and she's also made national headlines taking on president donald trump after announcing immigration raids to oaklanders before they happened. she had her fair share of opponents who say she was lenient on the police department and too tough on developers. mayor shaft has gotten endorsements from outgoing governor jerry brown and projected winner gavin newsom.
11:17 pm
one of her platforms is addressing homelessness head on. >> in oakland we believe in our diversity. we believe in respecting all cultures, all religions, all nationalities. i have been proud to stand as the mayor for those values and we hope that those are the values that will be spreading throughout this nation as a result of this election. >> reporter: mayor shaft is also heading to campaign for an initiative that will expand early childhood and preschool education and a plan to improve high school graduation and college readiness. >> thank you for that. we want to get more analysis on some of these new numbers coming out. >> we're talking about prop 6 and prop ten and prop 6 in
11:18 pm
particular seems like any time you have a chance to let voters decide if they want to pay more taxes they're going to say no. but in this case they're willing to pay more taxes because apparently they're so fed up with the state of california's roads. >> proposition 6 is one, very important. two, it's also very controversial for a couple of reasons. one of them you just mentioned. be you the first reason is why republicans put it to a vote in the first place. and the second reason it's controversial is because of the official wording that the democrats put on the ballot. let me read this to you, eliminate certain road repair and transportation funding, requires certain fuel taxes and vehicle fees be approved be i the electric and it goes on. nowhere does it mention repeal gas taxes. so, tom, let's start with you on that. >> it was put on there because of republican frustration. we have been paying gas taxes for a long time and there's this deficit. now -- >> wait a second. it was also put on because
11:19 pm
republicans were afraid they would have no one at the top of the ticket and they needed some reason for the red meat to go out and vote to win congressional seats. >> i was getting to that. and i have always been an advocate for republicans putting on initiatives that attract voters so certainly that was some of it. it's going to go down and lose because javier basera put on what is a confusing title. people didn't know whether to vote yes or no so it is going to lose. i think the initiatives overall are a mixed bag. you can't say the electorate voted all one way or the other. we have too many initiatives and it confuses people. >> on the wording some would say one, words matter. >> i would be one of those people because when i look at repeal of fuel tax approved by voters you're asking me do i want to support the will of the
11:20 pm
voters in a previous election, i thought it was, yeah. those words are freighted and pretty loaded. so i'm not the least bit surprised. >> i'll be the first one to say i don't think the wording or titles really matter. it's a question of whether or not you put enough money behind it to make it what it is. you can claim it's being effective but it was brought on to try and give john cox an edge and he started going down and down the polls. everyone else put money against it there was only one voice on this issue people saw or heard. >> i think you and i covered a campaign in the recall voting against license fee and he took a wrecking ball and dropped it on a car at an event.
11:21 pm
>> in front of a hotel. >> that gets peoples attention. this makes peoples eyes glaze over and a lot of head scratching. >> let's talk about proposition ten. that's the one that would have expanded cities powers to impose rent control. one would think that in these times in a heavily democratic state where supposedly there is at least a mini blue wave going on and in urban areas everyone is talking about the high cost of housing and income disparity that it would have had a good chance but it's going down. how do you explain that? >> first of all, yes. in urban and urban california it's something that we do care about. but also in urban california and there's a lot of single family homes as well. and they play on the single family home ownership hard. the amount of money put into this made it a referendum on home ownership not on rent
11:22 pm
control. and look at it, there's a reason why so few cities in this state actually do have rent control. i think san francisco, santa monica, a little bit of la city. but it's really not as prevalent as one would think giving the high cost of housing in the golden state. >> do you have any thoughts on that one? >> california voters are strictly older, whiter, and more likely to own homes than the residents of the state. and i think the fact that this measure was defeated reflects only that. the differing demographics between homeowners slash voters and the population of california who are suffering a lot. >> so you're saying that if this initiative had been in a presidential year rather than a midterm when younger people and -- >> no -- >> it might have had a better chance. >> i'm saying homeowners have a
11:23 pm
disproportionate impact on elections in california. >> but it would have effected far more than homes and i think michael is right they did a good job explaining this. look rent control does not actually solve housing crisis. the voters actually got this one right from an economic point of view and the marketing was far better to defeat this which begs the question when are republicans going to start using better marketing to get an edge in california? >> okay, thank you panel. i think we're going back to the studio. >> randy, a quick question. >> yes, ken? >> i don't know if you can answer this because i'm not clear if the democrats have a super majority in the state legislature in sacramento and when gavin newsom takes office as governor what that could mean for what he could get done in sacramento? >> well i will start with i'm not sure yet not having the numbers in front of me. but i know it was predicted that the democrats would have a super majority in both the assembly
11:24 pm
and the state senate. so ken is asking i guess you're basically asking how easy does that make it for governor elect newsom to get things passed. it makes it pretty easy. >> however it's hard to say no to your friends than it is to the other side. the issue here is how is gavin and we talked about this as well. how is gavin going to manage them so that they don't go too far. remember the legislature was far to the left of jerry. we don't know how far to the left it will be of gavin and it's going to be hard for him to manage them and make this about him because he wants it to be about him so he can run for president. >> and we're going back to the studio. >> all right, randy, panel, thank you. >> thank you. >> we're going to take a break and show you some of the results from races in sonoma county. we'll be right back.
11:25 pm

11:30 pm
11:31 pm
(pam) in san francisco -- are and san francisco one of the most contentious of the issues dealt with homelessness and a possible solution to the crisis. >> it's all about prop c. prop c would be taxing some of the biggest companies in san francisco. those that make more than $50 million a year with that money going towards the homeless programs. and grant it passed. grant is telling us that it passed. these are the latest numbers we have 60% to 40%. a big difference but prop c has passed that will raise between 250 $250 million and $300 million a year for homeless programs in san francisco. it's worth noting the san
11:32 pm
francisco mayor was against this because she didn't think it had enough accountability on how that money would be spent. >> it was a very contentious issue and a lot of people were fighting back and forth over this. charles clifford joins us to break it all down. >> reporter: supporters of prop c people who worked on the campaign are here celebrating their victory. as you mentioned prop c has been approved by voters in san francisco passing with 60% approval. prop c is of course an effort to tax san francisco's businesses, any corporations in the city that makes over $50 billion annually will be taxed raising about $250 million to $300 million to help the homeless population in san francisco get services that they need to keep their homes or find homes, stay off the streets. there's several program that is this involves. now one catch is there has been concern among supporters of prop
11:33 pm
c that the business community in san francisco could file a legal challenge against this victory but this evening just a short time ago sales force ceo who has been the front man on supporting prop c tweeted out that he is prepared to finance a legal defense of prop c if it were to be challenged in court. but for now they are celebrating here. this is a big victory for the supporters of prop c. charles clifford, kron4 news. >> thank you very much. let's check in with jr stone who's been reporting live from the headquarters of gavin newsom all night long where there was a big celebration there. jr? >> reporter: pam, i can tell you the music is still playing right now but this party is about over. people have left the area at this point. i will say though here we are an hour and a half after gavin
11:34 pm
newsom took the stage to give his victory speech and what a moment it was that his wife gave the initial speech then introduced her husband and then the kids eventually made their way on to the stage waving to the crowd and as fun as that was for so many supporters and the family as well during his speech he touched a number of big topics. one of them being immigration, homelessness, and even school safety during that speech. you can see some of the video we have here. he spoke for a good 10 to 15 minutes saying there's a lot of work to do and that this is just the beginning saying that the best is yet to come. all while praising the efforts and the work done by jerry brown. but again things wrapping up here, music still playing all is done out here. and for those folks who are big supporters of gavin newsom this was a very big night. it was shoulder to shoulder out here at one point.
11:35 pm
back to you. >> jr, apparently we do have some sound from newsom during his speech. so let's go to that right now. >> that's what this campaign is all about. it's about advancing all californians on their journey by making this a place of equality, making california a place of opportunity, safety, and affordability for everyone. we can make their dream real. but only if we have the courage of our convictions, the courage to dream bigger and demand more. the courage to be a state of results and a state of refuge. i've listened and i've learned from californians of every walk of life. because i know that starting tomorrow the hard work truly begins. but tonight i'm just overwhelmed with gratitude. and i'm humble, i'm humble to accept this awesome responsibility. because i know what we can
11:36 pm
accomplish working together, transforming the politically impossible into the practically inevitable. >> there you have it. that was governor elect now we can call him gavin newsom former san francisco supervisor, former san francisco mayor, current lieutenant governor until he's sworn in on january 7th as california's next governor. >> there are several measures on the ballot which focus on trying to ease the safe housing crisis as well as measures dealing with cannabis issues. >> locally these are really big issues as you know. ryan o'donnel joins us with more on those measures. >> cannabis of course something new after becoming a recreationally legal here in the state of california. but let's start with measure o. this is the berkeley housing bonds, we were talking earlier, i think just a few minutes after the polls closed.
11:37 pm
we didn't have any numbers to share with you right now. but this authorizes the city to share up to $100 million in bonds to help low and income families with housing. 5% still this late in the ball game here. 5% at 75% it has a commanding lead. let's move to measure v. this is the affordable housing bond for san jose. this would authorize the city to issue up to $450 million to help out with housing as well. more precincts reporting in this one. again a commanding yes on this. we're also following the cannabis business tax. many cities are hoping to add more money to their general funds through these taxes. we're going to start with measure aa in half-moon bay. this would authorize the city to tax marijuana businesses based on certain criteria.
11:38 pm
for instance cultivation square footage, distribution, and manufacturing. again this is half-moon bay. the money goes to general city services. and as you look there zero precincts reporting there in half-moon bay. but for the early ballots that have been tallied so far there on top of it with yes. we're also watching proposition d this one complete at 99% this one at yes. this is for the city of san francisco to add one % to 5% tax to marijuana businesses. again all of this money these cities are trying to garner more money for their general fund in order to put back into the community and tax businesses that are now new and growing here with this whole new industry, this whole new world of doing things of having these marijuana businesses. so the city trying to get a hold on some of that money. >> and we just completed a four part series of trying to make this business work in
11:39 pm
california. >> some of the small ones saying they're making it too difficult and it's not going to work. >> still if you want to tax it to get some money out of it people are going to buy the product that's how it is. >> we're going to go to break looking at some of the results coming out of san francisco.
11:40 pm
this is not a bed. it's a revolution in sleep. the new sleep number 360 smart beds are on sale now during sleep number's veterans day sale. it senses your movement, and automatically adjusts to keep you both comfortable. it even helps with this. so you wake up ready to put your pedal to the metal. and now during our veterans day sale, the queen sleep number 360 c4 smart bed is only $1299 - save $400. plus, 24-month financing on all beds. only for a limited time. sleep number. proven, quality sleep. (ken) one national story of
11:41 pm
11:42 pm
interest here in the bay a rather one national story of interest here in the bay area a rather small election in kentucky. >> it involves a clerk you might remember who gained national attention a few years ago. catherine is in the newsroom with details on this. >> i think a lot of people remember this. a small race you might not be familiar with. kim davis the county clerk who went to jail in 2015 for refusing marriage licenses to same sex couples and tonight she lost her bid for a second term. she lost the race by eight points. she was actually elected as a democrat but she left the party after saying they abandoned her. she was beaten tonight by democrat alwood coddle jr. she claimed to be acting on god's authority when she refused to
11:43 pm
issue licenses. this just days after the supreme court ruled the constitution guarantees the right for same sex couples to marry. davis never backed down from her position. she also drew criticism from coddle during the race for hiring her son to work for her. ken and pam. >> thank you very much. let's check in with our analysts who are up in the newsroom now. they want to take a look at the big picture tomorrow. what are people really going to be talking about tomorrow, randy? >> i think they're going to be talking about a bunch of things and that's what we're going to talk about tonight because the big blue wave well there was kind of a blue wave in the house but certainly not so much in the senate. there was more of a red small wave in the senate. so what's the headline going to be tomorrow? >> split decision. but some accountability is coming for the trump
11:44 pm
administration. >> gridlock 2.0. >> what was 1.0? >> what we just lived through the last two years of. >> that wasn't gridlock. >> no that wasn't gridlock. >> mitch mcconnell controlled the senate. >> no question i expect division to rise. we saw obama lost 63 seats, clinton lost 54. trump will lose about 55. so no big historical wave. but it is going to be a very contentious two years and we'll see how trump deals with the punches out of the house. >> one thing we haven't talked about much is a bunch of governors seats have flipped to democrats. and some democrats have complained for a long time the reason they have so much trouble in house district sunny skies because they have been redistricted in -- districts is because they have been
11:45 pm
redistricted and gerrymandered by republicans. we have gone to an independent panel that tries to do redistricting so it's a little better than most other states. but with democrats controlling more state seats does that help democrats down the road? >> well it's a big deal that florida didn't flip to the democrats because that would have been a really big deal in the 2020 election because that's such an important swing state. i think it matters more whether it's particular swing states in general. if scott walker did in fact lose then that's a big deal for the democrats because they pick up a swing state governorship and that will have an impact on the 2020 election. >> but it also has impact on the house of representatives the next election cycle because they won't be able to gerrymander if they don't control the governors. >> you're already seeing backlash on gerrymandering. democrats are now using state law to keep it out of the supreme court as they did in pennsylvania. they use the state constitution
11:46 pm
to get those districts back. so you picked up four maybe five seats in pennsylvania. i think we have to go back to something i said earlier which is the inside that trump pulled to win the presidency is in jeopardy when you look at tonights elections how wisconsin, michigan, pennsylvania went and the popular vote are not good numbers for trump in 2020. >> one thing we were talking about earlier is the new power that california democrats will have in the house. and i'm wondering what power that will give the state in fighting back against the trump administration on issues the trump administration has been trying to fight california on. fuel standards, clean air, sanctuary city status, does that change that dynamic at all now that democrats control the house. will they have more clout to stop trump? >> i think that the immigration discussion, debate that we saw
11:47 pm
in the closing weeks of this campaign is very concerning and my big question is the speech we saw from newsom just a little while ago talking about this is a place where we celebrate diversity rather than criticize it. does california as a border state in any way serve as a kind of a limit on what, let's say how far the criminalizing of immigration. and i know you can say okay this is a distinction between undocumented or illegal immigration and immigration period. i think the lines were so merged in the last few weeks of this campaign this became a war against the other. and it was embraced by many of the candidates who won.
11:48 pm
and we're taking in trump's embrace took on that message. and i think the question is can we either california or any other border state or any other leader bring some sanity back into the discussion in this country about immigration. and i would say that the results tonight are concerning. >> yes is the short answer to your question. i think they will be emboldened and michael is right the path to winning in wisconsin, michigan, and pennsylvania is different now for trump which means he has to go beyond where he is now. in the next two years he has to build a broader coalition or face a much more difficult election. >> on the other hand he was using that rhetoric which was clearly i think even you would acknowledge quite extreme. and he was mainly campaigning
11:49 pm
for the senate. and it worked. his divisive language about immigration worked. >> in some races. >> some races. >> he was focussing on the senate. >> but those are red states coming home to republicans. in the end it's a red state. missouri is a red state, north dakota is a red state. wel see what happens in montana. >> but he's always only focussed on his base. >> but they're not big in the electoral college. those are states that are given for the most part to the republicans. if you want to talk electoral college math this is a bad night for donald trump. and what california can do and i think what californians are going to do in the congress is start to do something that so far this administration has never seen which is a check. which is accountability, which is the ability to use the subpoena to get information that quite frankly these agencies have been stiffing congress in every way for the past two
11:50 pm
years. that is an enormous amount of light that's going to come that's going to be shed. not even including what robert mueller may bring to the table in the next few weeks. >> so we have been talking about what the democrats may feel bold enough to try to stop. what might they try to reach out to republicans on and actually get something done. or what would republicans be willing to listen to democrats on? >> that's hard actually. >> it's no small thing. it's not terribly controversial. >> trump promised a big transportation bill. the democrats will want to work with him on that. but there's going to be a problem with that in the senate, the democrats are obviously going to want to spend more than the republicans and this is where budgetary problems are going to arise, what the priorities are. but i think that's the answer. and it's also possible that trump tries to get some

immigration change that he couldn't get out of a republican house. he may try and work with the democrat house. don't put anything past him in that regard. >> i'm going to stop you right there because i think we're getting a question from pam. >> randy we talked about this a little earlier you and i. i'm just surprised that the issue of guns got no national traction that we just saw all of these people who have been killed in pittsburgh and las vegas, the parkland shooting, yet this issue didn't have a national umbrella of traction for either party. it just didn't seem to come up on the national level, why? >> well, pam is asking why the issue of guns and gun control hasn't become, didn't become a major issue during this midterm election giving all of the shootings that have happened this past year including recently. and i guess my first short answer would be that trump carries all of the live coverage and he doesn't start with it
