>> all of this unfolding overnight just as president biden returned from the global climate summit in scotland. >> the election results are a possible sign of trouble ahead for biden and the democrats heading into next year's midterm elections, so let's begin our coverage with abc's ike ejiochi live in washington. ike, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, mona. virginia isn't the only state breaking ground. new york city and boston, they've elected new mayors with new jersey's race coming down to the wire. >> your next governor, glenn youngkin. >> reporter: this morning, abc news projecting republican candidate glenn youngkin as the next governor of the commonwealth of virginia. >> my fellow virginians, we stand here this morning at this defining moment. >> reporter: the race between democrat terry mcauliffe and youngkin widely seen as a referendum on president biden's first year in office. >> it's very clear that glenn youngkin has done significantly better than other republicans
have, a state that no republicans won statewide in 12 years. >> reporter: youngkin pivoting his strategy to focus on schools but the race was about more than just education. exit polling reveals 33% of virginia voters ranked jobs as their number one priority in the race compared to 24% who said education and just 13% who listed the pandemic as the main issue. in new jersey, republican candidate jack ciattarelli staying up late with his constituents rallying support as he tries to upset the incumbent democrat phil murphy. >> i wanted to come out here tonight and tell you that we had won. >> we'll have to wait a little while longer. >> reporter: the race still too close to call. in neighboring new york abc news calling the race for new york city mayor for democrat eric adams, the former police captain will be the city's second black mayor in its history. in boston the city electing democrat michelle wu as their next mayor becoming the first woman and asian-american to hold the job. >> and what we deserve is a
boston where all of us are seen, heard, treasured and valued. a boston for everyone. >> reporter: and in minneapolis, the majority of residents there voting against eliminating its police department for a department of public safety. mona. >> ike, thank you. let's take a closer look at the results overnight. earlier i spoke with abc news political contributor amanda renteria. first let's talk about this virginia's governor's race. many seeing it as a referendum on schools from masks to vaccines to, of course, critical race theory. is that how you see it? >> i don't. what i see here is much more about what is happening on the ground, what is, you know -- a lot of folks talk about politics and for awhile it's been nationalized with trump on the scene. i think what has happened is things have become hyper, hyper local. people are living their lives in their communities, and if a campaign comes in and thinks that they can nationalize it, i think those days are over.
>> democrat terry mcauliffe once said, i don't think parents should be telling schools what they should teach, and many say that that was sort of a turning point in this race. the political website the hill said that comment deserved a top spot in the hall of fame for political blunders. do you think that is what made this race so close and perhaps cost mcauliffe in the end? >> so i think it was smart of youngkin to take that comment and really link it to the education conversation that he was having with voters. so there were two things that he was doing. one was not only talking about critical race theory, which has an education tone to it, but it also has the culture war conversations that have been happening and certainly that trump leaned into when he ran, and it really did put it in place of a sentiment that people, all parents and people are feeling right now, and he was really able to capture that. >> our thanks to amanda renteria. now to the other big story this morning. the first young children in the u.s. have now received their first covid vaccine shot just
moments after the director of the cdc gave the green light. this morning, new video of this pfizer facility in wisconsin churning out pediatric doses of the covid vaccine after cdc advisers gave the shot unanimous approval for children ages 5 to 11. >> we have a total of 14 yeses, 0 noes. >> reporter: the first kids in the country getting their first dose late tuesday. doctors in connecticut administering the shot just minutes after the cdc director gave the okay. >> good. >> reporter: the president calling this a major step forward. the cdc saying that by vaccinating kids, the rate of virus transmission could be covid cases could be prevented - between now and next march. kids will get only one-third of the adult dose. early studies found the vaccine to be nearly 91% effective in preventing symptomatic illness in young children with only mild side effects including a sore arm, headaches or fever and studies found no cases of myocarditis, a rare heart
inflammation seen in some young men. >> it's probably because of the smaller dose in these vaccines, but we're finding that fever and other side effects are a lot less common in kids in this age group, and most of these kids aren't even going to need to miss a day of school. >> reporter: despite promising results, nearly two-thirds of parents say they will not be lining up for the shot any time soon. >> i wouldn't be giving any of my kids an emergency use authorization vaccination. i definitely would want to see long-term studies. >> these are exceptionally safe vaccines, even for kids with complicated medical histories or pre-existing conditions. you know, really the only absolute contraindication to the vaccine is if your child is allergic to the vaccine itself or one of its components. havelrea bipped.hildren's doses walgreens will open scheduling for children online today. cvs will follow later this week. a pro football star is facing felony dui charges after a deadly crash. the las vegas raiders released wide receiver henry ruggs iii last night just hours after
