responding officers have to call for backup, including the rancher who owned the bulls. no one was injured in the rancher was fine for each of the bulls. were both are coming again in this november a democrat and a republican will face off for governor of california. >> this is only the first tap to turning around this date and taking back california for all californians. >> we will have the latest results and here at home. changes in the air, the weather is getting sunnier. we are focusing on your vote your choices on this day after
election day. there is a lot happening in san francisco. the lead in the mayor's race likely changed while you were asleep. when we went to bed london breed was on top, but it is mark edging him out this much. it is coming down to good old right choice voting. i think that for major cities here have it. some people don't like it. >> i do not ever remember a race for san francisco mayor not waking up the next day and having some sort of controversy going on. >> it is good for us and it is good for you. we are going to focus statewide and start with the biggest race and another boat that was very closely watched, gavin newsom and john cox finished first and
second respectively. if you are with us in the 6:00 hour we spoke directly with john cox and thought -- asked him why he thought he could win? >> most people cannot afford to live in the state. 46% of the bay area residents want to leave and there is a reason why. it is dysfunctional and mismanaged and mr. newsom bears that responsibility. >> is that the issues he is running on is ending sanctuary city and state policy as well as our state's recently increased gas tax. the lieutenant governor says his issues include affordable housing in the state education system. >> it is time to reinvest in our public education system and start treating teachers like the heroes that they are. >> the lieutenant governor and
his wife shared kisses and a victory embrace at the primary election party in san francisco. he preview one of his strategies against cox, calling him a soldier in the trump administration. on >> analysts credit the strong showing for john cox due to the president. this morning the president tweeted another message of support. putting that race on hold, let's turn back to the mayor's race. former state said no -- state senator leno has pulled ahead due to the city's ranked choice
voting system. >>reporter: a whole lot of drama, good morning to all of you. it potentially could be days before we know who the next mayor of san francisco will be, that is because they are still busy counting ballots. thousands yet for the count before we can defy. we know last night the supervisor london breed jumped into a big leap. in the early morning hours things started to shift in the direction of mark leno. he closed the gap and eventually pulled into first place, all because of the ranked choice voting system. the latest results so leno with 50 point -- 50.4% and breed with 49.58%.
leno is ahead by less than one percentage point. the ranked choice system turn things around us candidates were eliminated from contention. second-place votes were then redistributed. you will remember during the campaign leno join forces with fellow candidate jane kim, encouraging supporters to list the other as a second-place choice. leno ended up earning 77% of jane kim second-place votes. early this morning we talked with kim about how this strategy paid off for mark leno. >> i am going to be able to leave office on january 7 with some sense of relief that my work will continue through the mark leno mayoral administration. i really look forward to be able to continue my work to serve our city and our country in a different capacity.
>> i voted number two for jane kim. she made mention she did the same for me. using the dynamics of ranked choice voting and being transparent and accountable. >> no matter who becomes the mayor of san francisco we have a lot of work to get done. i am still going to be here doing the work. i am planning to continue to work with whomever, whether it is me or anyone else. >>reporter: this was a dramatic race from the start, all prompted by the sudden death of merely back in december. no matter who ends up coming out on top this election will make history. leno will be the first openly gay mayor of san francisco while breed would be the first african-american woman to hold a job. the latest results so leno
leading less than one percentage point. a lot of mailman -- mail in and others yet to be counted. we reached out this morning to representatives from london breed and mark leno, still waiting to hear from each of those candidates. a sonoma state political science professor here with us in the studio. but first, the top spot in sacramento, the governor's race. john cox had a good showing coming in second. some would say it was an upset to villaraigosa. if you were to win this race, what would it take for him to do it? >> a huge republican turnout. he needs the independent voters to swing to the right. it is very hard to do. there
will be a lot of money spent in the state. he will need some momentum. the newsom team really has the matchup that they wanted. this is the person they think that they can beat. newsom cannot skate to become the next governor, but he is in a strong position. the key becomes what do they do with the legislature? neither have very strong relationships in sacramento. what do you get done or what did you accomplish? that is key, everyone will be looking at 2020. >> looking ahead, how do other races happening in the state affect who gets the top spot? >> you have the seven house races that hillary clinton one that are representative by republicans. democrats look like they will be able to compete, they might not be able to win.
those districts are critical. if the democrats are going to win the house and nancy pelosi will become the next speaker, they have to win the majority of those districts and compete in three other districts, and they have to win in pennsylvania. if not, nancy pelosi is out. that brings us to the mayor's race. there is a lot of turning going on in terms of political positioning. >> in the presidential election we saw some democrats voting for donald trump, could it happen here? are we going to see democrats, maybe not necessarily here in the bay, but across the area voting for john cox? >> let's say the valley democrats, would like to say they eat coastal republicans for lunch. they are relatively conservative and they the online from parties. republicans stay closer to party and vote the party ticket more, but those independent
voters play a small role in the june primary, they play a huge role in those congressional districts in that november general election. right now the san francisco mayor's race has turned. does the process of ranked choice voting effect the legitimacy or the response of the new mayor? >> no, the voters may not vote all the way down for all three choices, they may rank first and second and then they get confused. it is so well known in san francisco and in oakland that it does not delegitimize. it gives candidates an opportunities to be more strategic. >> right now i think four major cities have it. >> it allows a more progressive recommendation. voters tend to get confused, but it gives us a lot to talk about it.
>> the whole choice was to save money. we interviewed jane king and when i asked about her future in politics she said she would not run. whoever loses this race, you expect them to be there? >> absolutely. this race is so important. you are feeling the mayor's turn, and you can run twice after that. you could run san francisco politics while what happens with nancy pelosi, all of that speculation begins on friday. >> mentioning quickly we get updates every day at 4 pm on the mayor's race and we will have that for you at the very top of the floor. thank you. another hot topic was regional measure three, talking about tolls in the bay area. i wanted to bring in sal for a
little more on the outcome of that. >> thank you very much. regional measure three looks like it is going to pass. it is now 54% yes, 46% have voted no. voters in all nine bay area counties had a chance to vote for this. so far solano county and contra costa county has voted no, the other counties have voted yes. this will rage bridge tolls by as much as three dollars by 2025. so it will cost you three dollars to cross the bay bridge over the next several years. we are going to bring in the bay area council, who help to put this on the ballot. thank you for joining me. a lot of people on my twitter feed were saying this sounds like a very expensive proposition to help improve bay area roadways.
>> good morning and thank you for having me on. 54% of bay area voters who heard arguments on both sides during the course of this election cycle voted for it. we know not everyone was of the same mindset, but i think the legislators, our partners who we worked with on this measure had the foresight to bring the bay area together for a vote, because it shares a common economy and regional infrastructure. while there is a difference on how to fund infrastructure, i do not think there is a difference of opinion when it comes to people agree we have a serious congestion problem. people are frustrated by it. it is part of the reason why folks are becoming more dissatisfied with the bay area and thinking about leaving. we have to address these things.
it costs money to do it, that is part of the solution. we have to realize that washington is probably not coming to our rescue like it did in generations past with major transportation money. >> this morning a congressman sent out a press release say that he did not want this measure to pass. he wanted the state to get more money from washington dc to help with infrastructure. also he said he feels the counties that have the most bridges, it is unfair for those people to bear the brunt of people who live in santa clara or on the peninsula who do not necessarily cross bridges. what do you think about the fundamental fairness of this cost? it is going to affect more people in the east bay. >> you know, with all respect back congressman was opposed to
this in almost every legislator in the bay area supported it. he is on the transportation committee. i give them all the support in the world in bringing the money home to the bay area that we need, but we all know that is not happening right now and probably not in the foreseeable future. we are on our own. i think fairness is an important question. the bridges use a big part of where that can just. what we are trying to do is get more cars off those bridges and give people who use their cars a mass transit option. about 75% of this money is going to go for the fairies and for tramp or another alternative, so that people who do not have to use the bridges don't. most of the counties, in fact
every county besides alano has passed multiple sales taxes. people are paying for transportation in other ways. in the past 15 years we have raised about $80 billion of our own money for transportation improvement. only a small portion is coming off the bridge. we are going to have to keep looking for ways to fund our infrastructure and make your job less relevant in a couple of years. >> all right. we have to leave it there. thank you for joining us. we will see where that money goes. election covers continues after the break with results on san francisco police officers using god in a printing error that left thousands of voters off the roster. for all the latest results you can go to ktvu.com. we will be right back. was -- breyers natural vanilla.

welcome back, we will now focus on a boat that received nationwide attention, the effort to recall judge aaron persky. the efforts down from his controversial sentence of brock turner who was convicted of sexual assault. the public uproar over the sentence was linked to the etoo movement. voters have removed a fitting judge for the first time in over 80 years. >>reporter: around 60% of voters voted to recall aaron persky. that effort was prompted by his sentencing of brock turner in that sexual assault case. he was convicted of sexually assaulting an unconscious woman
two years ago. the judge gave him a six-month sentence for the crime, even though it fell under legal sentencing guidelines, critics audit was far too lenient and were outraged. voters apparently agreed, ousting him in a recall vote last night. his chairperson issued a statement saying the voters are the winners. we voted today. the recall effort did have its opponents, some sitting and retired judges came to his defense in the weeks leading up to election day. their concern is that the recall would encourage judges in the future to base their set the sink on public opinion. >> this is unique, the first in the history of california were
a judge with a stellar record who made a lawful decision lost his job. that has never happened in the history of california and i hope it never happens again. >>reporter: what happens next? the assistant district attorney will replace aaron persky once the results are finalized. she garnered 70% of the vote in a separate election, feeling a position of who would succeed him if he was recall. she was a civil litigator for five years and joined the district attorney's office back in 1995. she has been an assistant da overseeing cases in the family violence and juvenile justice division. henderson supported the recall, but did not speak publicly about it during the campaign. that did put her at odds with her now former boss, who did
oppose the recall effort. also, the incumbent mayor has a lead with 74% of the vote. the closest candidate is steve brown. if he clears the primary with more than 50% he will not be required to take part in a runoff. the santa clara county sheriff's six -- is seeking her sixth term. she currently has 45%. she needs to capture the present in order to avoid a runoff. here are more election results. you can see the results they are. they will face each other in the november general election.

do we need to talk about this more or less? >> that woman definitely raise the idea that we have to get rid of, the real typing. you also have to hear that there is a fear. there is a fear because what you don't understand you tend to run away from. maybe you start thinking it is them a lot and the truth is it is all of us. we have one idea that we can be civil citizens and have spiritual ideas that come forth. you have to figure out how to not look at it as us versus them. >> a lot of what you deal with in oakland similar? >> it is unique. i just asked him to tell us something different, and he said we are just like other city, but we have a hardness because we have to survive. when you are surviving sometimes
you suspend the rules. sometimes people misunderstand. it is not i don't care, it is i have to figure out how do i make it to this moment? oakland is unique, but the one general topic is violence cannot be our response, if we come together there is a solution amongst us. from the broken you can get a lot of help. >> in your relatively short lifetime you have seen oakland change a lot. how do you stay in your community and still have a pride about the future? >> you just reach out. what you know you can help someone else. the pain that you have seen you can let them know, you don't have to carry it yourself. a lot of people have gone through pain and overcome. we tried to have an organization where you can come
and speak about it. >> i know a lot of people view asking for help is weakness, what do you say to those who feel that way? >> don't, i almost killed myself because i did not ask for help. i struggled in reading and writing and it almost took me down. my message is you have to ask for help. pipes will break. the biggest thing in being a man in the -- and the young lady is to ask for help. >> you have an antiviolence form being held tonight from 630 to 8 pm -- 6:30 pm until 8 pm. we have more information on ktvu.com. the pride of oakland skyline high school, thank u for jog us. have a good event tonight.
