[ music ] it's the day after the election and now that he ha won, what is governor elect jerry brown going to do? and how is he going to overcome the bitter partisan ballots and
crippling deficits that grey davis and arnold schwarzenegger were unable to overcome. our political editor randy shandobil reports. >> reporter: it's back to the future. the man who decades ago was labeled governor moonbeam is now proclaiming himself governor practical. >> it was a really good victory last night. but of course it just paves the way for a lot of very hard work up ahead. >> reporter: meeting with reporters today in his oakland office, the governor elect acknowledged that beating his wealthy opponent meg whitman was the easy part. finding a way to pay for everything californians want and overcome a predicted $12 billion deficit, that's the hard part. >> i'm very aware of the deficit. i am very aware of how long it's been around. it's defied the best efforts of several governors. all i can tell you is i didn't create this mess. i am going to be straight and tell it like it is. i will do everything i can to make it work. >> reporter: some good news for
the governor elect. last night californians voted to get rid of the two-thirds requirement to pass the budget. that means that the democrats should have an easier time of getting the budgets out on time. but voters also passed three other initiatives that make it much more difficult for the state to raise the revenue necessary to balance the budget. >> voters gave and they also took away. >> reporter: democratic assembly man andre swanson says he is happy brown is now in and the two-thirds threshold is now out, but worries that voters will now think democrats have no excuses if things don't work out. >> the voters want to have a check and balance on the legislature. so we are going to have to go to them to ask can we have more money to spend? >> so on the one hand the people said by a majority, give us a budget. on the other hand they said don't pick my pocket. so this is -- this will take all of the know-how that i said i had and all of the luck of the irish as i go forward.
>> brown's first step tomorrow, introduce himself to legislative leaders of both parties. political editor, randy shandobil, ktvu, channel 2 news. so what's next now for republican meg whitman? our ktvu camera was in la after her concession speech as meg whitman majored with her supporters about midnight. we caught a glimpse of her getting teary eyed. she made no public appearances and political analysts are speculating whether she has a future in politics. meg whitman as you probably know is a billionaire and spent $142 million of her own money on her campaign. >> some very close races remaining in the bay area and around the state. many won't be determined for days, even weeks because not all of the ballots have been counted. for example, santa clara county has 125,000 provisional and mail-in ballots to count. many of the un counted ballots are vote by mail ballots
dropped off at polling places yesterday. the race for state attorney general remains undecided tonight. a recount is a distinct possibility. it is just that close. take a look at the latest numbers here. san francisco democrat kamala harris has a very narrow lead over steve coolly, the republican candidate. in fact, only 9,000 votes separate the two. more than 6.5 million ballots were cast. when we ended our election coverage last night it appeared that harris was going to lose. and coolly had already declared victory. he cancelled the victory news conference this morning because of the uncertainty of the outcome now. several other key races remain undecided at this hour, including one bay area congressional district where there is also talk of a recould you want. and the race for the mayor of oakland where no candidate has reached the needed majority. those updates later on in this newscast. plus how the soon to be vacant job of san francisco mayor may be filled. >> chief meteorologist bill

they say she then around around the corner into a waiting taxi cab. >> well, evidence -- he was a fine little black boy across the street there. >> reporter: wilson says he spotted this little boy in front of his house just after 8:00 this morning. i walked over and picked him up. you know, i gave him a little kiss. >> he then notified the police who started asking neighbors if they recognized him. >> we are going to find out who did this. >> reporter: lieutenant kent bay says the boy does not speak clearly and can't answer questions about his name. the toddler was wearing a dallas cowboys shirt and missing a shoe when he was found. >> obviously if the child only had one shoe on, they were in a hurry to drop him off and get away. >> bay says whoever abandoned him was likely familiar with the neighborhood and picked this semi-secluded yard deliberately. >> that was an opportunity for her to walk the boy down a breezeway around the corner out of sight most likely of the cab driver. and then flee back into the cab
and then drive off. >> reporter: residents in the immediate area approached by police say they didn't recognize the toddler. >> he went and got the little boy and brought the little boy back? >> i've never seen the little boy before. >> reporter: most say if the child lived in the neighborhood they would know him by face and possibly his family by name. the child is with protective services tonight. and the police say he is reportedly healthy and unfazed by this ordeal which they say is fortunate because it was around 50 degrees this morning. they say this grass was wet. and he was inappropriately dressed for these conditions. they also say they are right now looking for the taxi cab driver. they are calling offices from oakland to valejo trying to identify him and identify this woman who they say may face charges. patty lee reporting live ktvu, channel 2 news. it is unclear tonight whether one incumbent bay area congressman will return to capitol hill in january. his race is too close to call.

the president says he is ready to work with the republicans. >> i am eager to hear good ideas wherever they come from, whoever proposes them. and that's why i believe it's important to have an honest and civil debate about the choices that we face. >> it is just pretty clear that the obama pilosi agenda is being rejected by the american people. they want, as i said last night, they want the president to change course. and i think it's change course we will. >> house republican leader john baener of ohio is in line to be the next speaker of the house. he said he promised the president he will be honest with him. and the two pledge to work together. >> outgoing speaker of the house nancy pilosi says today she has no regrets. but she also said that watching so many democratic seats fall to republicans was difficult. there has been much speculation that pilosi would step away from her leadership roll if the house fell to republicans. nancy pilosi has not decided what to come next.
she could seek to be minority leader. pilosi plans to discuss her options with the democratic caucus and her family and then pray over her decision. >> for nancy pilosi and her party the losses are deep and wide. but here in california it's a different story as long-time senator barbara boxer won a fourth term. today her opponents conceded the defeat and made a few remarks while boxer did not appear in court. rita williams has our report. >> reporter: a national turn to the right did not include california's liberal lion, even though she was in the republican cross years. >> we stood up to every special interest in this country and we won. thank you. god bless you. god bless california. and god bless america.

for the right reasons, to make life better for people. and i say if the new people come in and they want to do that, fine. if they don't, they won't be there long. that's how i look at it. >> reporter: fiorina said in the end she just couldn't overcome the registration advantage democrats have in california. almost two and a half million more. in la, rita williams, ktvu, channel 2 news.

inspection. in san francisco, there are no letter grades but numerical score cards. 100 points is perfect. it has to be shown only if a customer asks, which hardly anyone does. have you ever seen these before? >> no. i have not. >> reporter: have you ever asked for an inspection score card or a report? >> no, i haven't. >> food inspector report, no, can't say that i have. >> reporter: the president of the san francisco health commission jim ellig says he thinks that should change. >> i really believe it should be in the front window so that the public walking by, looking at the menu can also look at the score and think, do i want to go in there? >> reporter: kevin westly, the executive director of the golden gate restaurant association says a mandate to post scores in the front window would be unfair. >> is there another industry that has to post its score according to the government? when you walk in a car dealership do they have their safety rating on the front door? >> reporter: mohamed is a senior health specialist with the department of public

where to find the official word. >> i usually yelp it. >> reporter: they rely on their inch extinction and the look and feel of the place. sometimes the problems are hard to miss. >> i've gone into a facility and been able to smell the cockroaches. >> reporter: you can smell them? >> yes, they put out a scent. >> reporter: but other infractions may go unnoticed. the health commission says not all restaurants are getting the 1-2 a year. the commission is trying to change that by urging the department of public health to fill all vacant inspector positions and improve the food safety section of the city's website so people can more easily find inspection reports and scores for the past three years. but actually requiring restaurants to post an inspection score card prominently would take legislation from the board of supervisors. the health commission said it may take that request to the board in january. in san francisco, ktvu, channel 2 news. >> and we have posted information on how to check the health rating of any restaurant
in san francisco, even search by neighborhood. it's on ktvu, ktvu.com. just look for the ktvu right now section. the oakland police department tells ktvu news they plan to have extra officers on duty when mehserle is sentenced this friday. the department says it does not expect any problems but the officers say they will not tolerate any violence. you will recall 78 people were arrested after riots broke out in july when the former bart police officer was convicted of involuntary manslaughter in the shooting of oscar grant. the coalition for justice for oscar grant is planning two events on friday afternoon to honor grant. >> it is still not clear who will be oakland's next mayor. the latest show don perada with 31%. election workers are now sorting and checking the mountains of absentee and
provisional balance. since this is a of course are ad vote the registrar of voters says he expects to start tabulating the second place votes on friday. here is how the ranked choice voting works. when no candidate receives the majority of first choice votes. the candidate with first choice votes is eliminated, in this case candidate b. and then those who chose and eliminated a candidate will have their vote transferred to their second choice candidate. if those additional votes give the candidate a majority, that candidate wins. if not the process of eliminating candidates and re distributing the votes continues. now that san francisco mayor gavin newsom is headed to sacramento to become lieutenant governor the request is who will replace him? he told ktvu news he is not looking forward to that conversation. newsom's new lieutenant governor begins in january. but his time as mayor remains for another year. >> this is a very, very
important for the city. there is an opportunity to do some special things but also some opportunity to do some damage. >> a lot of different names are being mentioned including the current board president david chiu. even some former mayors. and president obama touted it as an example of the future. now the tide has changed by time for a bay area solar company. >> and i'm tracking a system out in the pacific. it's going to bring rain to the bay area if we move towards your weekend, i will tell you which days could be good weather. >> and the party is continuing long passed the parade. how people have been using everything from street sweeping brooms to orange shoelaces to show their spirit.
