1:00 am
hello and a very warm welcome to our viewers joining us in the united states and right around the world. i'm isa soares in london. just ahead right here on "cnn newsroom." >> alrighty, virginia, we won this thing! >> we have sent a message to the entire country. >> a big win for republicans and a wake up call for democrats. we've got the u.s. election victories and close calls ahead. world leaders make big commitments at the cop-26
1:01 am
climate summit. but will they follow through? we're live for you in scotland this hour. and world series champs, the atlanta braves defy the odds clinching their first title since 1995. >> announcer: live from london, this is "cnn newsroom" with isa soares. it is wednesday, november the 3rd, and we begin with a big night for u.s. republicans. right now we are watching a key election in new jersey where after many hours of ballot counting, the governor's race is too close to call. with some 84% of the votes processed, it is a dead heat. take a look at the numbers. just hundreds of votes, in fact, separate the incumbent governor democrat phil murphy and jack ciattarelli, he told supporters, we want every legal vote counted. take a listen.
1:02 am
>> and although it was not my intention, we have sent a message to the entire country. but this is what i love about this state if you study its history. every single time it's gone too far off track, the people of this state have pushed, pulled and prodded it right back to where it needs to be. >> so, we'll keep an eye on those numbers from new jersey. in virginia they are basking in the glow of a big win. glenn youngkin has narrowly defeated terry mcauliffe. president joe biden campaigned hard for him. this is, of course, a republican has won any statewide office in virginia since 2009. and this stinging loss is seen really as a wake up call for the democratic party and a possible
1:03 am
bellwether forewhere the next year's midterm elections that could see democrats lose their razor thin majority in congress. >> alrighty, virginia. >> a campaign that came from nowhere, but we were joined by neighbors and friends of all races, of all religions, of all ages, of all political ideologies, and it turned into a movement. [ cheers and applause ] this stopped being a campaign long ago. this is the spirit of virginia coming together like never before. the spirit of washington and jefferson and madison and monroe and patrick henry, of virginians standing up and taking our commonwealth back. >> cnn's jeff zeleny has been reporting from the somber mcauliffe campaign headquarters.
1:04 am
the issues really that helped youngkin get elected. >> reporter: in his speech thanking supporters, youngkin revisited a lot of the same themes he mentioned out on the trail, like parents having more involvement in their children's public school education as well as the creation of new charter schools. but noticeably absent from his victory speech was critical race theory, something that he has repeated on the trail several times in recent weeks and has become one of his loudest applause lines. critical race theory not taught in virginia public schools, by he often said he would ban it. he did not mention it in his speech this morning. that's the late east coast from chantilly, virginia, eva mckin, cnn. >> reporter: democrats significantly defeated in virginia. terry mcauliffe had his eye on a second term as the governor of the commonwealth, stopped short by republican glenn youngkin. mcauliffe addressed the crowd late tuesday evening, did not concede, and even though the
1:05 am
early hours of wednesday morning still had not called mr. youngkin. but the point was clear. he had narrowly lost the virginia governor's race according to cnn's projection. it was the voters in the middle that simply did not support terry mcauliffe this time. so democrats now certainly going through recriminations. how this defeat could have happened. certainly a rejection of the biden administration's agenda, a split screen moment. president biden landing back in the u.s. from a week abroad to this news that certainly will shake this democratic party. terry mcauliffe, of course, underestimated glenn youngkin, no question, trying to tie him to donald trump. in the end that simply was not enough. so terry mcauliffe again not conceding, but certainly defeat is at hand. democrats have so many questions to answer as they head into the 2022 midterm elections where the house and senate majorities certainly on the line. jeff zeleny, cnn, mclean, virginia. well, professor thomas grift
1:06 am
joins me now. professor, thank you very much for joining us. good morning to you. let's start with what you saw in virginia. a big win for republicans and big blow, i think it's fair to say, to democrats. what does this win, would you say, by youngkin tell you about the mood as well as the voter sentiment in the u.s. right now? >> well, it's great to be with you, is other. thanks so much for having me. i think what we saw in virginia was especially significant. there is a desire to tie the outcome to national politics. first and foremost, youngkin's win reflects a successful statewide campaign. in lots of ways this is a politician who was really able to flip the conventional wisdom that all republican candidates need to take a clear pro or anti-trump stand. he tried to paint him as trump in khakis. youngkin threaded the needle in an interesting way. he kept trump at sufficient arms length to appeal to the northern
1:07 am
virginia voters, places like arlington and lehman besburg. he didn't alienate maga voters in the southwest. youngkin doubled down on making this race about concrete issues he argued were progressive overreach in public schools, crime, tax breaks, et cetera. by contrast what we saw from mcauliffe was a flat campaign that kind of lacked direction. when you add it all up in an off-year election where democrats have been struggling to articulate a coherent message beyond the fact they're not trump, i think the outcome maybe wasn't too surprising. >> yeah, we were looking on the screen at top issues on both sides. how much do you think the thinking or popularity of the president, president biden as well as the democrats struggled to move the legislative agenda, perhaps has dragged or dragged mcauliffe down here? >> i think it's certainly a challenge for democrats going forward. it's pretty clear that democrats
1:08 am
need to look at yesterday's results as a wake up call. virginia in particular is stlukt i have precisely because of its demographics, mix of rural and suburban voters, a swing state. means it could be a bellwether. vice president kamala harris said as much on the campaign trail a few days ago, what happens if virginia in large part determines what happens in 2022, 2024, so on. so the fact voters went out and rejected the democratic candidate has to be worrying to party leadership. that does tie back in, i think, to joe biden. this is really consistent with broader electoral frustration with democrats. as you say, in washington over lack of ability to get the infrastructure bill done, declining approval for biden and so on. so last night could prove a road map for republicans thousand duplicate that success in 2022. >> what you're saying in many ways, that this is almost like a national referendum on president biden and democrats waking up
1:09 am
this morning, thomas, might be waking up to quite a headache. hai do they solve this? where do they move the needle if we're talking about the midterms here? >> that's a great question, isa. the real question is what lesson will democrats draw going into the midterms. i can already hear some on the left saying the reason democrats are on the ropes, they aren't pushing enough of the spending bills. joe manchin and kyrsten sinema are the problem. the progressive agenda. if that's the takeaway, it will be a mistake. they were reminded of what 2010 looked like when soundly defeated by a republican wave after obama took office. certainly they want to get some things done in washington. they want to get infrastructure through, but my own thinking, at least personally, is they have to kind of strike this middle ground in a way that -- and kind of frame their agenda in a way that's not just anti-trump.
1:10 am
if they can do that, i think they can have a better chance of maintaining control of congress in 2022. >> well, let's have a look at the race at the moment in new jersey. a very tight call, if we can bring it up with the latest numbers in the governor's race. it's neck and neck this moment. i think 100 votes or so separates them as you can see, ciattarelli from murphy. what does this tell you? no one expected, i suspect, this to be such a narrow race, thomas. what do you make of this? >> well, you're right. and just the fact that ciattarelli is making a serious play against an incumbent in new jersey is notable. it's going to energize the gop regardless of the eventual outcome. if you're republican you really have to be saying to yourself this is the kind of wave we can ride to take back control of both houses of congress potentially in 2022. right now it is too close to call. we'll see how the result turns out. i think you're right. the fact this is even in play, especially given what the polls
1:11 am
looked like a week ago, two weeks ago has to be a huge boost to republicans, and they've got to be thinking that this is a trend that they can latch onto across the country. >> we'll stay on top of the numbers. always great to have you on the show. thanks for your perspective. >> thanks so much. now, new york city has elected its next mayor. democrat eric adams celebrated his victory a few hours ago as you saw there, the retired police campaigned in brooklyn. he will be new york's second black mayor. cnn's athena jones is at his campaign headquarters in brooklyn with the latest. athena. >> reporter: hi there. supporters of democrat eric adams are in celebration mode after adams easily beat his republican opponent in the mayor's race. curtis sliwa, republican, founder of the guardian angels, a crime fighting organization.
1:12 am
adams who is a former new york police captain and former state senator, now poised to become the 110th mayor of the city of new york. and only the second black mayor of new york after david dinkins in the early 1990s. adams grew up with working class roots. he often speaks of living on the edge of homelessness in his youth and having been arrested as a teenager and beaten by the n.y.p.d. he later decided to join the force to become a voice of reform from within. later rising through a state office, state senator, now to the brooklyn borough presidency, next to city hall. eric adams running on -- making sure public safety which he called the prerequisite to prosperity is something that new yorkers can rely on. so he spent a lot of time talking about public safety. but he also talked about issues like improving education, a universal child care. he spoke tonight at his victory speech about making sure that corporations in new york given
1:13 am
intern ships to under served communities. here's a little more of what he said in his victory speech. >> all of the challenges that every new yorker faces, tonight is just -- not just a victory over adversity. it is a vindication of faith. it is a ploofroof that people o this city will love you if you love them. >> that's right. >> it is the proof that the forgotten can be the future. >> reporter: and adams won by putting together a coalition of working class voters, union voters, people who live in the ou outer boroughs. voters of color. the korean community, chassidic community. the bottom line is at a time of rising crime, eric adams staked his race on increased public safety and making sure businesses are able to work more easily here in new york, cutting
1:14 am
through red tape. these are ideas that clearly resonated with the voters of new york. athena jones, cnn, brooklyn. >> thank you very much, athena. boston is witnessing history in the making. >> let's celebrate tonight and tomorrow we'll continue to work together. thank you, everyone. >> cnn projected michelle wu will become boston's next mayor after her opponent conceded. making her the first woman and first person of color elected to the office. she campaigned a progressive platform earning support from high-profile democrats in the state. and in atlanta, the city's mayoral race is headed for a runoff. city council president felicia moore holds a substantial lead for the first spot and gjust 60 spots separate the lead. buffalo is claiming victory after mounting a massive
1:15 am
write-in campaign and defeated the democratic nominee walton. an unprecedented fifth term as mayor. with so many write-in votes it will be weeks before election officials certify those results. we will, of course, have much more election coverage throughout this hour right here on cnn. now, the first american children ages 5 to 11 have already received their first dose of the covid-19 vaccine. take a look. >> there you go. how excited was he about that? this hospital administered the pfizer vaccine just moments after the cdc director gave the
1:16 am
green light for young children tuesday evening. right now millions of doses of the vaccine are being shipped around the u.s. president joe biden says there's enough for every child and calls the moment a turning point. the cdc's advisory board unanimously approved using the pfizer vaccine on young children on tuesday by a vote of 14-0. cdc director dr. rochelle walensky says the benefits outweigh any risks the vaccine could have. take a listen. >> the chance a child would have severe covid, require hospitalization or develop a long-term complication like misc remains low. but still the risk is too high and too devastating to our children, and far higher than for many other diseases for which we vaccinate children. >> i think the data support that we have one more vaccine that saves lives of children, and that we should be very confident to employ it to the maximum.
1:17 am
>> now, president joe biden is now back at the white house after attending the cop-26 summit in scotland. and the head of his return, mr. biden was expressing confidence that he can convince senator joe manchin to vote for a sweeping spending bill despite concerns from the democratic lawmaker. manchin says his main concerns will need to be addressed before securing the vote for the nearly $2 trillion economic package. he said a vote could be reached before thanksgiving. the majority leader chuck schumer said he's aiming for the bill to come to the senate floor by the week of november 15 as long as the house passes it this week. there were cheers during the closing bell as you hear at wall street. the dow ended the day above the 36,000 mark for the first time ever. tuesday's close also saw the s&p
1:18 am
500, as you can see there, and the nasdaq post record highs. and there were cheering as well in atlanta. atlanta braves had just been crowned world series champions and their fans are going wild, as you can imagine. atlanta beat the houston astros on tuesday to win the series four games to two. it is atlanta's first world series title since 1995. the most valuable player was braves outfielder. we'll have more on the braves win later this hour from cnn's andy scholes in houston. but a good night for the atlanta braves. well done to them. now, u.s. president joe biden has returned home from scotland where he and other world leaders welcomed several agreements at the cop-26 climate summit. we'll have more on the nations that are pledging next. plus, a green energy race is shaping up between the u.s. and

1:23 am
now, in the first major elections in the u.s. since joe biden took office, we are seeing strong showings by republicans in two key governors races. take a look at this. in new jersey democratic incumbent phil murphy is in a battle tighter to keep his job. he and jack ciattarelli are neck and neck. less than 100 votes separate them. in virginia, the next governor will be a republican. glenn youngkin has defeated the former governor terry mcauliffe. it is a state joe biden won easily in last year's presidential election. we'll keep an eye on those numbers there. now, just a few days into the high stakes climate summit in glasgow and we've seen dozens of nations sign off on several agreements aimed at tackling the climate crisis. another day of meetings will soon be underway, and the uk is
1:24 am
set to announce plans to become the world's first net zero financial center. as part of the proposal uk financial institutions and listed companies will be required to publish plans on how they reduce their contribution to global warming. well, that announcement is just one of the pledges coming out of cop-26 in glasgow. on tuesday, dozens of nations agreed to cut methane emissions by 30% from 2020 levels by the end of the decade. the british prime minister says there is still plenty more work to do, though. take a listen. >> we must take care to guard against false hope and not to think in any way that the job is done, because it is not. there is still a very long way to go. but all that being said, i am cautiously optimistic. >> cautiously optimistic there. cnn's phil black joins me from edinborough, scotland.
1:25 am
we've seen pledges on deforestation, emissions, today is about climate finance. do you think we'll see the private sector coming to the table or do you think regulation will be involved so make sure it is not a lot of hot air? >> reporter: yeah, there is a key announcement here today, isa, with a big group, world's biggest financial institutions collectively with some $130 trillion behind them. announcing that they will together start to actively back the sort of projects and technologies that will help the world get to net zero carbon. it's called the glasgow financial alliance for net zero. and it is led by the former bank of england governor mark carney. we know in order to transition to green policies, infrastructure, technologies on the sort of scale and in the sort of time frame that the science says is necessary, that's going to take a lot of money. carney with the british
1:26 am
government believes this alliance can help make that happen through access to global finance. it is voluntary. there is no regulation here. so what that means is these institutions are under no obligation to suddenly stop backing or it will back away from dirty carbon intensive industries. and climate activists, critical climate activists make the point it is wrong to suggest these institutions are going to suddenly be directing all or most of their money to projects that are going to make a difference. but it is a start perhaps, and the thinking goes that if you start to change where the money is flowing, then you can start to change how quickly the world is adapting and, therefore, perhaps speed up the process by which the world does respond in an adequate way to the climate crisis. isa? >> yes, it's a step in the right direction. but like you said, regulation perhaps has been needed for
1:27 am
sometime. phil black for us in scotland. thanks very much, phil. good to see you. now, china is signalling it could be warming up to more ambitious climate goals. so far beijing has been reluctant to keeping global warming to 1.5 degrees celsius. china's special envoy for climate said his country is not resisting the target. china is the world's largest polluter. beijing's support is critical to cushing climate change. yet china's president xi jinping has been noticeably absent from cop-26. joe biden criticized his decision not to attend. >> we showed up. we showed up. and by showing up, we've had a profound impact on, in a way i think the rest of the world was looking at the united states in its leadership role. i think it's been a big mistake, quite frankly, for china in respect to china not showing up. the rest of the world will look to china and say, what value added are they providing?
1:28 am
>> well, that criticism is just the latest volley in a growing rivalry between the u.s. and china over who will lead the climate, the charge really on climate action. in the u.s., president biden is pushing hard for green initiatives in his infrastructure bills. we've been reporting to you on the show. china is outpacing every other country in producing electric vehicles. cnn's david culver now reports the race to green supremacy really is just getting started. >> reporter: devastating scenes of destruction no longer needing a hollywood portrayal. this is real and it's happening now. the world turning to the u.s. and china for leadership in battling climate change. the two largest economies are also the biggest emitters of carbon. combined, they are responsible for more than 40% of all global emissions. both sides making big promises. the u.s. pledging to reduce emission by half of 2005 levels in 2030.
1:29 am
china aiming to reach their peak emissions by then. america's targeting net zero by 2050. china hoping to be carbon neutral a decade after that. but these are promise, not guarantees. within the u.s., energy has become more efficient. about 20% of electricity comes from renewables, like wind and solar. but politics have forged avoiding creating consistent climate solutions. >> the u.s. has a credibility challenge. there is a lot of just attention on u.s.'s domestic political challenges to achieving and fulfilling those climate promises. china for its part tends to under promise and over deliver. >> reporter: under the all-powerful central government, china's challenge is its size and rapid growth. shanghai, china's most developed city, is home to more than 24 million people. and keeping all of this up and going relies on a constant power supply. in recent decades, china's economy has soared, nearly
1:30 am
everything it seemed made in china. giving this once rural agrarian nation a massive economic boom built mostly on fossil fuels. china is reliant on coal, 60% of the country's power. we traveled to one of china's coal hubs, inner mongolia. coal mining still active. we found continued action of coal power plants. most recently an attempt to rein in emissions, chronicling outages across the mainland. people trapped in elevators, traffic lights going dark. panic spread as the winter cold moved in. >> the power crisis is a reflection of things getting deeper and real. we are really trying to rearrange certain parts of our economy and our power system. >> reporter: but that is all changing fast. more than a decade ago, green
1:31 am
energy solutions on a major scale were relatively new. today china has the world's largest investor, manufacturer and employer of wind and solar power. china even promoting its green solutions as it hosts the upcoming winter games, pledging this to be the first olympics with competition venues fueled 100% by green energy. >> the chinese manufacturers are getting very competitive. the key question is for the u.s. can really carefully think about where it can play a leading role in the supply chain of renewable energy. >> reporter: the new technologies motivating nations to get creative in securing sources of energy, a power struggle on multiple fronts. china and the u.s. competing to battle climate change might ultimately benefit the rest of the world. but at this point it's out of necessity. david culver, cnn, shanghai. now, millions of americans will see the first freezing temperatures of the season as winter weather makes its way
1:32 am
throughout parts of the united states. meteorologist pedram javaheri has the die's forecast. good morning. >> good morning, isa. here's what's going on across the u.s. we have some big changes in store. temps running 10 to 15 degrees below average across the eastern third of the u.s. potentially the coldest air of the season moving in here the next couple of days. we're talking the coldest in some seven months for a lot of people across this region. in fact, a thousand stretch of land from parts of arkansas all the way through connecticut where temperatures get as cold of the upper 20s across this region. frost advisories, freeze warnings, even some snow hours to be had especially in the favorable areas across the northern areas of the great lakes, up of michigan. some regions could see as much as 3 i u as 3 inches of snowfall. again, the colder air really locks up across the eastern and northeastern u.s. by the time we get to, say, friday and saturday. but how about this. temperatures in atlanta going from 60 degrees down to 52.
1:33 am
that would be the coldest air in atlanta since the first of april, seven months. in memphis, should be into the upper 60s. only a 49 degree afternoon. you'll notice the warning trend does return here towards the latter portion of the forecast period. there are rain showers to be had in parts of texas. dallas seeing the coolest air at a 50 degree or so afternoon. which will be the coolest since february for parts of dallas. a remarkable run here of how much warmth has been in place. the seasons are gradually changing across this region. the western u.s. looking for showers to push in the next 24 hours. seattle upper 50s. louisville around 52 degrees, and even down in houston, temperatures still in the 70s, but you'll notice that divide, about 20 degrees cooler across dallas metroplex. isa? >> thank you very much, pedram. know, still ahead right here on the show, we'll have much more, of course, on the results

1:38 am
and, friends, we are going to start that transformation on day one. welcome to "cnn newsroom." i'm isa soares. that was virginia's newly elected governor glenn youngkin doing something no republican has done, in fact, in virginia since 2009. and that's simply win a statewide office. he squeezed past former democratic governor terry mcauliffe as you can see there, netting just over 50% of the vote. joe biden won virginia by double digits in last year's presi presidential race. his approval rating may have hurt mcauliffe. we heard from a political expert on the show earlier this morning. larry weighed in on what youngkin did right. take a listen. >> his method was quite simple.
1:39 am
hold trump at arms length. never get photographed with him. say enough good things to get by, and have intermediaries keep trump happy. and that's what went on. trump endorsed youngkin seven or eight times during the campaign. even on election eve, which i'm sure that the republican leadership would have preferred not to happen. but it did and didn't appear to hurt youngkin too much, and that is a model for other republicans in 2022. how to get by and get along with trump without embracing him. >> thanks, larry there. meanwhile, the governor's race in new jersey is quite a nail-biter with about 84% of votes counted. republican jack ciattarelli leads. they insist the campaign will go their way. votes are coming in from left leaning suburbs.
1:40 am
we'll stay on top of those nuns. in minnesota cnn projects they will overhaul policing. the movement took off after the murder of george floyd. cnn's omar jimenez reports. >> reporter: in the first electoral test since the murder of george floyd here in minneapolis, voters rejected replacing the police department with a wider encompassing public safety department. now, to be clear, this was never going to get rid of police officers with a single vote, but one thing i heard consistently from those who plan to vote no in the days leading up to election die, they didn't believe the ballot language was specific enough and what this public safety department would become and what it would do. now, supporters of voting yes to this ballot language said this is going to help incorporate mental health support, things like violence prevention services, just to incorporate them into the public safety mix, which would, in turn, help reform policing efforts. well, in the end that ballot
1:41 am
language failed. and one thing i heard from both sides of the argument is that there is agreement in that whatever was happening now needed to be improved. so the pressure goes back to the mayor who has oversight over the police department. the mayor and the police department itself to reform themselves, or to reform the police department as many in the community, again on both sides, have agreed needed to be done. now, all of these voting efforts came within heavy voter enthusiasm, even in the days leading up to election day. early voting, when you look at just early voting, we saw more of that than we've seen in the past 45 years at the municipal level here in minneapolis. and, of course, what that led to in this case was this ballot language failing. so the police department stands as it is for now, but it likely won't be the last attempt by people here to reform it. omar jimenez, cnn, minneapolis.

1:46 am
