jersey was not in may. except almost 24 hours after the polls close. nbc news says it is still too close to call. polls. will we ever learn the incumbent democrat phil murphy was ahead in the polls for months the republican made some gains, sure but the polls had murphy winning. outside the margin of error. now the race is essentially tied with murphy leading by less than one percentage point a recall may be next and who knows after that even if governor murphy does win in new jersey, which looks quite likely some have already called it. political analysts say last night's elections sent a warning to democrats everywhere. in virginia they got a solid beating. gop newcomer glenn youngkin took down the democrat terry mcauliffe and bathed the governor's mansion in red.
12:03 am
like the new jersey race mcauliffe held a steady lead in the polls but his disappeared as election day approached. a year ago that might have seemed impossible when president biden won the state by a whopping 10 points so what's the message to democrats? you're trying to do too much going too far left or you're not getting done what you promised to do. today the president said the defeat shows democrats need to pass some of his agenda before the next elections >> what happened was i think we just have to produce results for them to change their standard of living and give them a little more breathing room. insiders will tell you his own sagging popularity might not have hurt and it wasn't just republicans and democrats on the ballot yesterday liberal ideas, too
12:04 am
voters in minneapolis rejected soundly a measure to scrap the city's police department a year and a half after a cop murdered george floyd and nationwide protests ramped up against police brutality eliminating the police force went down in flames the news team coverage tonight larry sabato and kayla tausche and rahel solomon. >> reporter: shep, we're here in morris county. an area that voted blue in last year's presidential election for the first time in half a the county has historically voted red and swung back in a major way. jack ciattarelli won morris county by 14 percentage points will counties like this be enough to put him over the edge in a state with 100 million more registered democrats than republicans? that's unclear it could be another week before we know. those will be counted until about november 8th if it's still razor thin, we're likely headed for a recount.
12:05 am
in new jersey recounts aren't automatically triggered like some other states so in order to request a recount here there has to be a reason to believe an error occurred, voting irregularities in a state that those say is blue, the reality is a lot more nuanced. >> new jersey is a lot more purple than people realize we lean right when it comes to fiscal issues and pocket book issues, left when it comes to social issues but the state has some of the most affluent and the least affluent geographic regions in the country and that really shows when we get to our statewide and local elections. ciattarelli really tuned into that even though republicans are outnumbered two to one in registration, ciattarelli knew he had to capture independents and swing voters. >> now one thing that both candidates have agreed on, every
12:06 am
vote will be counted so stay tuned. shep >> rahel, speaking of every vote counted. a truck driver, i love this story, a truck driver who reportedly spent about $153 for his campaign in the state legislature is leading the long time incumbent senate president. >> reporter: that is right, shep his name is edward durr. it's a shocking victory for most, perhaps even according to some local media dr. koning said republicans performed better across the state and said the sweeney race may be indicative of the larger trend we saw, essentially voters voting against the incumbent or so-called establishment. about half of what durr spent, that was at dunkin' donuts. in virginia, the political changes could be extraordinary kayla tausche is live. kayla? >> reporter: shep, glenn
12:07 am
youngkin's win helped him flip coastal counties, rally rural turnout and consolidate conservative support in northern virginia as democrats regroup on the day after they're hoping hindsight can help in 2022 after the blue tide turned in virginia -- >> we won this state >> reporter: -- a day of reckoning for democrats. >> people are upset and uncertain about a lot of things. >> reporter: but disagreements on how to move forward some lawmakers say pump the brakes on spending. >> let's take time and do it right. let's make sure that people know what's in it people need to know that what we're getting for it, what you're going to expect, how much you're going to pay for it. >> others say rev it up. >> only in washington could people think that it is a smart strategy to take a once in a generation investment in infrastructure and prevent your president from signing that bill
12:08 am
into law and that's somehow a good strategy. >> voters say they want unity and compromise. >> they need to be more vigilant because clearly the path that we're on is not the path that is successful >> the idea was that with the new administration there would be a new enthusiasm in congress and it really hasn't happened. the divisions are still there. >> reporter: in exit polls roughly half of virginians said their vote was a proxy for the presidency that's a sea change from four years ago when 96% of virginia voters from both parties said their motivating factor was donald trump one seat now targeted by the gop's congressional campaign arm, virginia democrat along with 69 other races as they tried to retake the house. as a candidate youngkin cutting more traditional republican
12:09 am
profile touting less government, low taxes and republicans are taking that as a sign that in the mid terms and beyond they can run candidates on refined messaging without a direct link to president trump and win shep. >> kayla tausche, thank you. so what happened let's turn to larry sabato, director for the center for politics the president said what happened is they've got to get their agenda through that is not what last night's winners are saying what's your take >> my take is the key factor was in fact president biden's low ratings. you can't avoid it i can't see how anyone can deny that the president's ratings sunk badly in virginia which he won 54% a year ago and now he's down to 45% and in new jersey he was up 16 points it's not just about his agenda democrats would have been better
12:10 am
had they in august or september gotten together and made a compromise but they're still fighting that tells you all you need to know also, the covid, the variant problem which is going to continue for some time, there could be another variant, who knows. inflation. gas prices the problem with the supply chain. it just goes on and on and when all those problems are heaped on the plate of a candidate of your party, that candidate's probably going to lose as terry mcauliffe can tell you and governor murphy could possibly tell you once all the voting is done. >> it seems pretty simple in hindsight. what changes, larry, will the two parties need to make heading into the mid terms first, what about republicans? >> republicans have a lot to chew on, all of it good really in virginia and new jersey they learned what works and what
12:11 am
doesn't. there are local issues, educational issues, cultural issues that were used in virginia that helped glenn youngkin win and in new jersey property taxes, all kinds of things are being mentioned some of these apply to other states all of these lessons have been learned but mainly the lessons learned have to be learned by the democrats if they want to hold on to either house of congress right now it looks pretty grim, doesn't it >> it really does. your crystal ball shifted several democratic senate seats to tossup. is the message do more or moderate >> the message to them is do something but, number two, fix the big problems that are weighing on american's mind, like the pandemic, like inflation, like gas prices, et cetera as conditions deteriorate or even as they say the same, the incumbent party in both houses and congress is going to suffer. it's one of the oldest
12:12 am
principles in american politics. they're oblivious to it or they certainly acted like they were oblivious to it this entire fall. >> they don't seem like it anymore. larry sabato, thank you. it was a history making election for people of color tick a few off here for you. in boston michelle wu is set to become the first city's female mayor and first mayor of color in new york, eric adams set to become the city's black mayor. manhattanites elected the first black attorney and they got their first black mayors michigan voters elect their first arab american and muslim leader and cincinnati voters chose their first ever asian-american mayor. we're still keeping an eye on seattle where bruce harrell has a commanding lead over lorena gonzalez he would be the first
12:13 am
asian-american and second black mayor of the city. if gonzalez wins she would be the first latina mayor. there's a new theory in the shooting death that appeared on alec baldwin's shooting set. the armorer's attorneys are floating it. is it real is there any evidence of it. the man charged with killing two people and injuring another at a protest in kenosha, wisconsin, last year is now on trial and today the moments before this man pulled the trigger were shown to the jury in a key piece of evidence zillow stocks plunging today. did you see it the company announcement that had retail investors abandoning ship it's another day. and anything could happen. it could be the day you welcome 1,200 guests

the alec baldwin shooting takes a turn attorneys for the armorer on the set of "rust" are now suggesting a disgruntled person may have put a bullet in place of the dummy bullet >> why would someone do that >> i believe that somebody who would do that would want to sabotage the set, want to prove a point, to say that they're disgruntled, unhappy we know that people had already walked off the set the day before >> the attorney float it as a possibility that they are looking into they didn't provide any evidence at all to support the theory the armorer told investigators she had no idea how live rounds wound up on the set. including alec bald win's

revolve per killed the cinematographer and 1ed the director here's cnbc's valerie castro >> reporter: photos ofna hutchins show her surrounded by crew members. >> she cinematographer showed her surrounded by crew members >> she genuinely was something special. >> blaine rupert spoke to "good morning america" wednesday he was head of the camera department but quit the day before the accidental shooting citing several concerns including safety on the set. producers have fired back writing looper had nothing to do with or knowledge of safety protocols adding it's truly awful to see some using this tragedy for personal gain. >> yeah, so there's no personal gain in this for me. i have a pretty unique perspective in that it's safety as the head of th important that i be a part o safety as the head of the camera department for protecting the camera, camera operators, knowing what the shot is. >> reporter: actor alec baldwin has said little adding, read this in it she says we had several
12:17 am
safety meetings, sometimes multiple per day our ad never seemed flippant about safety attorneys speaking on behalf ofo hannah gutierrez reed. there was an opportunity for sabotage, a theory they say should be seriously considered. >> we had people who have left the set and walked out because they were disgruntled. we have a time frame between 11 and 1 approximately that day in which the firearms at times were unattended so there was scene. >> i opportunity to tamper with this scene. >> in response to allegations that this was a sabotage luper says that is an irresponsible and offensive suggestion and the production company has not responded. >> valerie castro, thank you. jurors were shown a key piece of evidence today in kyle
12:18 am
rittenhouse's murder trial it's footage of joseph rosen bomb chasing him and then moments later rittenhouse shoots and accuses him. shoots and kills him when people pursue him, he shoots two, killing one. here's the video frozen just before he throws that bag. there's rittenhouse on the left side running away and rosenbomb holding the bag and then rittenhouse did not fire the first shot you're about to hear. that was fired in the air by another protestor but he did fire the four that you hear after. here we go >> we've got a gun, baby >> oh, they shot >> oh. he shot him. >> rittenhouse's lawyers say that first shot made their client think he was under attack it's a critical piece of evidence when the central question in the whole trial is whether rittenhouse was acting in self-defense.
12:19 am
gabe gutierrez is covering the trial. gabe >> reporter: shep, there is a wealth of video that captured the chaos on the night of the shooting footage it also shows joseph rosenbomb lying on the ground as he was surrounded by bystanders he was the first of three people that rittenhouse shot. today rittenhouse glanced downward and stared at the desk in front of him as the videos were played. a police detective said he suffered minor injuries. he turned himself in near his n home in illinois hours after the shooting shep, as you mentioned, the key question, who started this fight? was it rittenhouse who was drawn to chaos and they tried to paint him as a young vigilante in way over his head or was at this time men he shot who gave chase and tried to attack him his lawyer says this was clearly self-defense and we're still in the early stages of the prosecution's case rittenhouse faces six charges
12:20 am
including first degree intentional homicide soon we may hear directly from the man rittenhouse shot who survived rittenhouse's lawyers say he himself will testify later in this trial which is expected to last at least two weeks, shep. >> gabe, thank you. spam, it's annoying, isn't it it seems to be getting worse now the fcc is stepping in plan to block billio we'll tell you about the new plan to block billions of robotexts from flooding our phones and what we can all do for ourselves to help cut down on the problem plus, a global push to lower carbon emissions at the u.n. climate summit, but how is the conference itself fighting to go green this year? e to allstate. where you can pay a little less and enjoy the ride a little more. ♪ ♪

have to publicly declare their vaccination status, but two sources tell the wisconsin state journal aaron rodgers received an alternative treatment earlier this year to try to boost his antibody levels. the sources say rodgers thought it would give him enough protection against covid but the league considered him obviously unvaccinated aaron rodgers reportedly tried to convince the nfl to change the vaccination status but it didn't work. cnbc has yet to confirm that report milwaukee journal sentinel's tom silverstein is here. the league has different protocols for vaccinated players versus unvaccinated players. if aaron rodgers was unvaccinated, what rules if any have been broken doing a press conference without >> he's not vaccinated, he's doing a press conference without
