( robin ) here in california it was no surprise that democratic heavyweight --- and former san francisco mayor --- gavin newsome won the governor's race. he has pledged to continue the combative stance against trump. while republican business john cox blames newsom and the democrats for california's high cost of living.
4:06 am
san francisco (kron) - gavin newsom has won the race for governor of california, cnn projects.newsom beat out republican candidate john cox and was the favorite to win governor.cox's platform was the repeal of the gas tax, but it ultimately did not resonate with voters.newsom's victory ensures one opponent of trump, outgoing gov. jerry brown, will be replaced by another. "we're saying unmistakably and in unison that it's time to roll the credits on the politics of chaos and the politics of cruelty," newsom told supporters at a nightclub in downtown los angeles. "now is the time for decency, for facts, for trust, and now is the time for truth. now is time for leaders to lead."video he did not mention trump by name, but his remarks were aimed squarely at the president.newsom presented california as "america's coming attraction," extolled the state's diversity, innovative businesses and thriving economy, and urged americans dispirited with political polarization to look toward the golden state."this, in every way, shape or form is california's moment," newsom said.newsom defeated republican john cox with a pledge to spur a rapid bump in housing construction, bring about universal health care and help impoverished children. he'll replace gov. jerry brown, one of trump's chief antagonists.newsom led cox 57 percent to 43 percent with about 4.2 million votes counted.for the past eight years newsom has been lieutenant governor, a position with almost no power. before that, as san francisco mayor, he rocketed into the global spotlight when he ordered the issuing of marriage licenses to same-sex couples when it wasn't legal. newsom, 51, promised similarly
4:07 am
bold moves on the priorities of his party's liberal base. videohe downplayed his conservative stances on social issues - he opposes abortion and made inflammatory comments about gay marriage a decade ago - but was unable to persuade voters to give him a shot. he also was hurt by support from trump, who is very unpopular in the state."i consider myself very proud that we highlighted the incredible struggle that the people of this state have had for years," cox told supporters as he conceded defeat in san diego.he blamed his loss on the enormous cost of running a campaign in california, home to nearly 40 million people and some of the nation's most expensive television markets. he raised more than $11 million this year - much of it ( robin ) over to the u-s senate race in california... where incumbent senator dianne feinstein faced a challenge from state senator kevin de leon. ( robin )but feinstein was eventually declared the winner .. keeping the state's democratic political order intact...after declaring victory, senator feinstein addressed her supporters saying it was her life's greatest honor to represent califoia in the u-s senate.

the toll to 101. ( robin ) california voters decided on 11- propositions last night. several of them are hotly contested races.. such as prop ten. which decides whether to allow the expansion of rent control ... as a solution to the state's housing crisis. kron4's michelle kingston has more. sacramento (kron) - a
4:18 am
controversial ballot measure would deal with california's affordable housing crisis by removing restrictions on rent control.this is a very controversial issue on the november ballot.both supporters and opponents of prop 10 have spent millions of dollars on advertisements.the price of rent could soon be in the control of local governments if proposition 10 passes.the measure repeals the costa-hawkins rental housing act, which prohibits rent control on single-family homes and only allows rent control for buildings built before 1995."i have lived in a rent control apartment as a teacher in san francisco, and if it wasn't for that, i wouldn't have had a home there," california teacher's association president eric heins said.heins is also an elementary school teacher.he says rising rents often force workers to move far away from their jobs."it's forcing out families and forcing working folks out of their homes, and it's because of predatory landlords wanting to raise profits because they've been able to," heins said.the coalition of affordable housing, along with some landlords, worry that rent control could lower property values."we think the ballot measure is terribly flawed, poorly written and it won't do anything about the supply and demand problem," coalition of affordable housing board member patrick sabelhaus said. opponents also argue the measure will slow down construction of new homes. "again, we have empathy for the problems those people are facing, but we think prop 10 is not a solution," sabelhaus said. "we think it's just going to make the problem worse."according to zillow, the median rent price in the u.s. is $1,300.california's is $2,000.on average, californians spend about a third of their income rent.

( robin) the most money has been spent on prop eight. that's the measure that would regulate kidney dialysis companies. dialysis companies... spening more than 100 million dollars to defeat prop eight. and it appears to have worked. ( robin ) if it would have passed... clinics would have had to treat patients regardless of how those patients are paying. but supporters of prop 8 told us last night that they are still optimistic and plan to challege it. ( robin ) proposition 11 --- which requires private sector ambulances company e-m-t's to stay on duty while on meal and rest breaks passed last night. ( robin ) a no vote on prop 11 would have meant that private ambulance companies will be governed by labor laws... meaning... based on a recent legal ruling... the companies would have to give their paramedics meal and rest breaks that cannot be interrupted by a 911 call.
4:20 am
( robin ) the housing crisis in the bay area... and across the state... was a big issue on the ballot tuesday. with several measures focused on trying to ease the crisis and offer some relief.

( robin ) the san jose housing bond measure also passed easily. it authorizes the city to issue up to 450- million dollars to help in housing... with an estimated tax rate of 8 cents per 1- thousand assessed property value. ( robin ) and finally lets look at state proposition 2... the "no place like home act," which also passed. it

5:17 am
and only allows rent control for buildings built before 1995."i have lived in a rent control apartment as a teacher in san francisco, and if it wasn't for that, i wouldn't have had a home there," california teacher's association president eric heins said.heins is also an elementary school teacher.he says rising rents often force workers to move far away from their jobs."it's forcing out families and forcing working folks out of their homes, and it's because of predatory landlords wanting to raise profits because they've been able to," heins said.the coalition of affordable housing, along with some landlords, worry that rent control could lower property values."we think the ballot measure is terribly flawed, poorly written and it won't do anything about the supply and demand problem," coalition of affordable housing board sabelhaus said.opponents also argue the down construction of new homes."again, we have empathy for the ( darya )san francisco voters voted in favor of proposition c. the measure won by 60- percent... and promises to tackle the city's homeless crisis... by raising atleast

dollars per 100-thousand dollars in assessed property value. the san jose housing bond measure also passed easily. it authorizes the city to issue up to 450-million dollars to help in housing... with an estimated tax rate of 8 cents per 1-thousand assessed property value. and finally lets look at state proposition 2... the "no place like home act," which also passed. it authorizes the state to use revenue from an older proposition that passed, to help pay for 2- billion dollars in revenue bonds, for housing for homeless in need of mental health services. ( james ) the most money has been spent on prop eight. that's the measure that would regulate kidney dialysis companies. dialysis companies... spening more than 100 million dollars to defeat prop eight. and it appears to have worked. if it would have passed... clinics would have had to treat patients regardless of how those patients are paying. but supporters of prop 8 told us last night that they
