"It's Wednesday November seventh get out your tape measures. A lot of Democrats are getting new offices. We start here. In a starkly alignment, the house of representatives changes hands. Day in America. Pack of new faces is coming to Washington what it means for the hundred sixteen th congress was this really a Blue Wave though, maybe you get a ripple. But I certainly don't think that there's a blue out your publicans held the Senate, and what happens as the lead there grows. And there are still a lot of unknowns. This morning, certainly preparing for big changes in the administration. What is about to change starting right now from ABC news got a special edition of start here. I'm Brad milkey. Let's get going. All right. Find our way, we're we're going here. To go up to review, and then you're gonna voca right? And you'll see. It's six PM, and I'm deep in the bowels of ABC news headquarters in New York. So Martha and this is the moment, everyone is getting really psyched polls have just closed in Indiana and Kentucky David Muir is about to start up world news. All right. So we're onset right now. And our political team is getting in place for election coverage. Oh, I'm I'm ready. Are you ready? Obviously, I'm recording. Always recording us and then all right years in the house. Here we go Rothen running on what turned into a momentous night tonight. Several developing stories as we come on the air, the first results set to come in pulls began closing in Georgia in Indiana. Then a big chunk of the country. Good evening. It's eight o'clock in the east polls have closed in half the country. This is the two thousand eighteen midterm election. And for more than a year two words have dominated the political conversation right away. Democrats have been energized voter groups that traditionally stay away from midterm polls were saying loudly. Oh, we're showing up this year. But then within a couple of hours, we started to see we do result coming in from the house of this disappointment to Democrats comes from the state of Kentucky. Several those Tausif races were not going Democrats way show Blackburn will win the Senate seat in the state of Tennessee, Marsha blah, enter partners at five thirty eight have this model they've been feeding data into the forecast, right? It said Democrats were this huge favor to win the house. Republicans were. Sure thing to win the Senate will as it was updated in real time started taking those race results into account and suddenly they're still slight favorites and our forecast, but this is not the best case scenario for democrat. Democrats were sweating bullets there. House majority was suddenly even money. The Republican Senate was the law news project. The Republicans will keep control of the Senate. But then crafts did start to flip some seats. I in some areas, they expected a democrat back in control in the governor's mansion in Springfield, Illinois and some spots. They didn't Pennsylvania six Chester county. Chrissy, Houlahan democrat, Mikey Cheryl in the state of New Jersey. The state of Minnesota democrat dean Phillips is a projected winner. I think Democrats are probably breathing a little bit of a sigh of relief as they see some of the these new seats turning their way across the country, overnight people's representatives weren't just a different party in Kansas state, Senator Laura Kelly, defeats Republican secretary of state Chris Kobuk, they looked different to a first two Muslim, women or elected. Congress Democrats in Michigan and Minnesota as we post this Democrats have one close to thirty seats in the house they needed twenty three. And despite a couple of stumbles Nevada voters turned against the Republican in the Senate race Republicans now haven't even wider Senate majority than they did when the night began. So that's what went down. The question is how am I find out hustled back on set?.

"He was down in early voting sixty four to thirty six. That's not good after my speech. That was a big turn for the better is how Republicans feeling about this. Did the president help or hurt Alderson? I think that he did a little bit of both. I think that where he helped him was to tighten this because we saw when when the first returns came in last night, the early voting O'Connor had a major lead including in some Republican areas. And when we saw election day votes come in, especially from the rural parts of the district that are more Republican that that is where Trump does really well. He did boost turn out in that area. So I think that he did help them in that regard and what the president is able to do. He is able to energize his base, get. Them to come out, but we still see overall him more energized, democratic electorate that that is just motivated on the face of it. And I think they know to he motivated some people to come out independence to to come out for O'Connor, and you saw, I think someone else who made a huge difference in this race was the Ohio governor. John casick who's been a vocal critic of Trump even floated primary ING him in twenty twenty after running in two thousand sixteen. I think the fact that he endorsed balder Sohn that are they, they convinced him to weigh in this race helped him too because he still popular in a lot of these areas. So I think that yes, Trump didn't make a difference. But there are areas where he's not going to be helpful for them. Bottom line when you look at the whole twenty eighteen map. Okay. The other race that we've been watching that still too close to call is further to the west, and let's bring in Brian Ellison of Casey. You are in Kansas City. Brian. This is the governor's race in Kansas and the president. That president, the candidate that President Trump endorsed is a head. That's Chris co, Bach who is in charge of that Trump election integrity commission, which went searching for election fraud and then quietly disbanded after not finding any. He's up against the sitting governor was Lieutenant governor. That would be Jeff Collier wh what's going on in this one? Yeah, it's it's been a nailbiter. Both candidates actually sent their supporters home from their watch parties without knowing the result. And then just before eight o'clock this morning, the last county Johnson county right here in the Kansas City area, the state's most populous county had a lot of problems with voting machines, long lines at polling places. They finally released their final results and it gave co Bach, as you said, just a one hundred ninety. One vote lead that would represent a victory for the the president in the sense that he endorsed. Crisco Bach just the day before the election. That's not a surprise, but worse co wasn't Kovac also seen as the one who would be weaker in general election, many people think so. He is certainly evokes. Stronger, negative emotions from Democrats as well as moderates in the state incumbent Jeff Collier. Certainly very conservative, but not nearly as disliked as co Bach further complicating the life though for the Democrats is the presence of an independent candidate. Greg Orman who actually just two years ago, ran a strong race, an unsuccessful one for the US Senate as an independent. He will probably be competing for some of the same votes as the democratic nominee last night state Senator Laura Kelly from Topeka. Okay. The Republican governors association. I wanna point out vice President Trump against not turn door seeing on Copaxone. Democrats are going to be happy actually if he does win, but we'll keep an eye on that one hundred ninety one votes. But I want to ask you Brian about the union vote. They're the referendum yesterday in Missouri voters rejected that states anti union law, which prevented private sector unions from asking for fees from workers who weren't members, but who benefited from the Union's collective. Bargaining now earlier this year, the supreme court ruled public sector unions unions essentially can't collect those fees, but this was about private sector unions of this vote. And it seems as if the unions one, they can now require non union workers to pay this fee for benefits, the unions get them. Here's AFL CIO, treasurer, Liz Shuler speaking in Kansas City last night. A lot of people wanna write the labor movement's obituary..

"You could call it a victory, but it's a very puritan. Well, Tuesday was a historic night for female candidates, and the numbers are only going to go higher in Kansas state Senator Laura. Kelly won the democratic nomination for governor and in Michigan, the former democratic leader of the state Senate Gretchen Whitmer handily won her party's gubernatorial nomination, which means women are now the major party nominees for governor in eleven states breaking the record of ten set in nineteen ninety four. And that number is almost certain to grow with the remaining primaries and at least twenty more women nominated for the US house. Last night. That total is now at one eighty to a record number of major party nominations with still more to come and one more milestone last night as Michigan's Rashid to Leib will likely become the first Muslim woman to serve in congress. A former state rep to Leib is unopposed in the general election for the seat long held by x.. Congressman John Conyers. And I think in a lot of ways, this is response to Trump. Joe women are stepping up Willie so much. And again, it's not a surprise just like nineteen Ninety-six response to Bill Clinton. Two thousand ten was response to Barack Obama. No doubt about it. Two thousand eighteen seems to be such a response to Donald Trump with Republicans, underperforming everywhere, and women, democratic women, particularly doing well and in these early contests. Yeah. I mean, there's no question what a preview, perhaps what we're going to see three months. We got last night across several states, Steve Rattner. We're going to get to your charts and just a few minutes, and we're going to kind of look at the historical perspective on all this, but just what can Donald Trump expect three months from now when you put together that history of what a sitting president faces in his first term and all the energy we're seeing among Democrats right now. Well, without St.. Feeling my own thunder from my charts. I think some rain. I think Steve Kornacki I'm sure knows all this is that of swing of this magnitude combined with the presence approval rating combined with the fact that it's a midterm election is all incredibly bad news for Donald Trump, but can I just say one thing about the women on a personal note, a shout out to my old colleague Hayley Stevens who was chief of staff on the auto rescue task force, one home to Michigan to fight out Michigan, eleven against what appear to be an incumbent Republican. He stepped down. She just won the primary. She's going to face another one in a Republican leaning district, but where I think most people give her a pretty a pretty good shot of winning. And you know. While it looks like Democrats a lot of women in the Democratic Party, you're gonna, do exceptionally well. You look on the Republican side and just like, like you said, you've got people like Barbara Comstock in northern Virginia who is in danger and actually as of last week was not getting a lot of support from the major party. You just talked about the fourth ranking Republican and other woman underperforming in ways. We've never seen before, and I wonder if that has to do with her being a woman in the Republican party, or if it's just that mainstream conservatives in the age of Trump are going to underperform every time that this is a party right now. That is at least in the primaries at war with itself. I'm not sure if there's a gender related aspect there to the extent that I could say there might be one it is that women in general in the electorate to say, nothing of the Republican party aren't all that hot on Donald Trump. The president has been that is the. Understatement of the morning has a lot of Republican women letter. I guess that's a better way to put it in. That really is, as you look at the map last night and you look at these races as we continue this sort of the home stretch before we go into the final push after Labor Day, that seems to be the overarching headline of all of these results that women have not just been offended by Donald Trump, but they have been activated to such a level that that's probably women are probably the greatest threat to the Republican majority right now..
