  • Welcome to Election Night in California.

  • I'm your host, Brian Anderson.

  • We're here in the Sacramento Bee newsroom, breaking down the latest results, and we're ready to make a new breaking production projection.

  • Bernie Sanders will win the Democratic presidential primary election here in California.

  • And here are just for the candidates competing in California's primary.

  • We have Bernie Sanders, who's visited the state very often.

  • We have Joe Biden, who's visited California more than any other Democratic presidential candidate.

  • He's here in California for a rally in Los Angeles, where he's expected toe speak.

  • Mike Bloomberg.

  • He's had a little bit of a struggling night.

  • He's one American Samoa, but he has struggled in other early primary states, and his campaign says talkto, make a decision and evaluate things tomorrow on where his candidacy stands going forward.

  • The biggest question going forward is with Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren, who appears to have lost her home state toe, Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden.

  • She's currently in third place as of now, so let's break down the latest results here on primary day in California.

  • With 6% of precincts reporting, Bernie Sanders is at 27.7% and The reason we're able to make this wind projection is because early voters tend to be Maur conservative, White, and not necessarily in Sanders is base of support.

  • So the fact that standards is winning, as we just pretty much know only the early voting.

  • That's a promising sign, which is how the AP The Associated Press was allowed and able to make this projection and we follow the AP is guidelines, so therefore, we made that projection as well.

  • Sanders again in first place here in California.

  • Mike Bloomberg around 20% at latest count.

  • Joe Biden, 17.5, Elizabeth Warren at 10.6.

  • But a big key thing to keep in mind is there are a lot of candidates polling highly, who dropped out of the race.

  • Pete Buddha Judge, The former South Bend Indiana mayor dropped out just the other day, and Amy Klobuchar dropped out yesterday.

  • Booty judge, I should say, dropped out a couple days ago.

  • Tom Steyer dropped out on Saturday following a disappointing showing in South Carolina's primary, where he's projected to get no delegates whatsoever, and Andrew Yang, who left the race after early voting began in California on February 3rd has 1.6% of the vote.

  • All other candidates, including the active Hawaii congresswoman Tulsi Gabbert, is currently pulling at 0.8% which is below 1%.

  • 6% of precincts reporting so far.

  • Very early picture, but a promising sign for Bernie Sanders, Which is why we're able to project that Sanders will win California's primary.

  • A look here at the map from other states were yet to call Main and Texas.

  • But all of these other states, you see have been called these air the Super Tuesday states.

  • Collectively, they'll add up to 1357 delegates.

  • And in order to win the nomination outright, candidates need 1991.

  • Delegates will get to that a little bit later.

  • But looking at the results.

  • California for Bernie Sanders, the most delegate rich state in the nation.

  • More information on his victory available here at sac b dot com, So make sure to visit our website for continuing coverage.

  • As we're speaking here, you can see Joe Biden with some good performances in the South.

  • Bernie Sanders has picked up a total of four states.

  • Joe Biden has picked up a total of eight states to remain uncalled and again.

  • American Samoa went for Mike Bloomberg, not here on the U.

  • S.

  • Map.

  • Another note.

  • Democrats abroad will have 13 delegates, but early voting and actual voting just started today, and we won't know those results for at least another week.

  • So that's why you don't see that here as well.

  • So diving in tow, why these candidates have focused on California.

  • California is the most delegate rich state here in the nation, with 415 pledged delegates.

  • And, as you can see, Joe Biden has been to California more than any other candidate, followed by Bernie Sanders, Tulsi Gabbert, Mike Bloomberg and Elizabeth Warren.

  • Pete Buddha judge had the most visits of all the candidates, but he's not here on this map because, as you can tell, he's no longer on active candidate.

  • And let's take a look at where these candidates have visited.

  • When they've come across to the Golden State, you confined this yourself simply by Googling California presidential tracker.

  • So if you want to see what we're seeing right now, just take a new window.

  • And Google, California presidential tracker one thing that stands out to me is you can t The Central Valley.

  • The middle of the state, which is located around the Fresno area, has very few candidate visits.

  • In fact, just two candidates still in the race have visited the Central Valley.

  • And if you look at the last eight candidates who were still in the race, half of that field visited the Central Valley.

  • Joe Biden didn't visit the Central Valley.

  • Elizabeth Warren didn't visit the Central Valley and we'll have to wait and see.

  • But looks like Bernie Sanders is poised to have a strong showing here in that region.

  • So let's take a look that at the results and let me refresh that, update it for you.

  • So here, what you see right now is a look at the key numbers.

  • We wanted to offer that to you.

  • So you have some insight as to some things to watch for in the coming days.

  • Big number.

  • You're gonna hear it on national news networks.

  • You're gonna hear it from us repeatedly in the coming days.

  • 15%.

  • That's the threshold candidates need in order to be eligible for a pledged delegate.

  • Now, if you break down this number.

  • One thing that's worth keeping in mind is 415 delegates is what's needed.

  • Toe win the state that that's how many are available across the state.

  • 271 of those are awarded based on Congressional District performance, which is about 2/3 of the total pledged delegates.

  • Again, candidates need 1991 is the magic number.

  • California offers the largest chunk of any state in the nation at 4 15 so to 71 come from congressional districts.

  • The other 144 are awarded based on statewide performance.

  • And again, looking back at the results.

  • Who meets the statewide 15% threshold?

  • It looks like it's Biden, Bloomberg and Sanders again subject toe.

  • Much change.

  • And if you're Elizabeth Warren, you might want to be a little bit concerned right now.

  • If your Bloomberg you might have some feelings of optimism.

  • Another key number.

  • Tow Watch CD 40.

  • That's the most important congressional district here in the state.

  • For Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, it has the largest concentration of Latino voters and young voters, relatives of the population as a whole in a given congressional district Sanders has been reaching out to minorities persistently here in the Golden State.

  • So Latino voters are a key voting bloc, and this is the district you're gonna wanna watch as more and more results come in.

  • Obviously, a lot of young people are enthusiastic about Sanders candidacy.

  • So this has a large share of young voters as well.

  • So let's head over to some local results here.

  • Joining me right now is Theresa Collect Theresa, Thanks for coming back here again for the latest Our S O.

  • It sounds like we have a projection in the mayor's race in Sacramento.

  • Tell our viewers yes, Mayor Steinberg will be likely re elected as mayor.

  • He has a is pretty far in the lead at this point.

  • And then we've got some other races.

  • They're a bit more close, Really interesting.

  • One is the race for District floor, which covers Midtown downtown and Lamb Park.

  • We just got results in the early results that Katie Valenzuela has 51% in the early results on DS.

  • Steve Hanson, who's the incumbent, is trailing at 48%.

  • We're getting more results at 10 p.m. So that could change.

  • But as of now she's in the lead in Pretty surprising.

  • We've also got the District eight race in Meadow View, where we're looking at my Vang in the lead with 46% and Pastor Simmons with 30%.

  • Again, these aren't final.

  • These are just the first results.

  • More coming at 10.

  • Um, and then in in measure G Measure G is trailing pretty pretty significantly right now on DDE.

  • What is Measure G for that is our viewers.

  • Yes, that is the youth ballot measure that would take a 2.5% of the city's general fund and put it for youth programs.

  • And service is on top of what they're already doing.

  • And, um, we've also got a couple more races Thio talk about.

  • So first, let's introduce our guest.

  • He's a City Council member.

  • He goes by Alan.

  • And let's bring him up here.

  • Allan, Allan, Warren.

  • He told me to call him Alan.

  • So I'm going with Alan.

  • Thanks for coming on.

  • Thank you for having me, Alan.

  • Thanks for coming on.

  • So we just got Allan Warren.

  • He represents North sacramento.

  • Um, and we just got some results in that race as well as of right now.

  • In the early returns, Allen has 39% to keep his seat representing or Sacramento.

  • And Challenger named Sean Louis has 28% right now and then another challenger named Ramona Landeros has 22%.

  • She's on the Twin Rivers school district, and, like I said, more results are coming at 10.

  • But as of right now, this is where things stand.

  • How do you feel right now?

  • 38%.

  • Kind of a little bit close, you know, it's still early.

  • I think 17% reported.

  • But you know, these guys are so tough.

  • Competitors District two breeds tough people, and all the competitors are very tough.

  • And Theresa, what are some of these other local important races that we should want?

  • Watches?

  • Well, yeah, I wanted to actually see if Alan wanted to talk.

  • G sure, that right now is trailing.

  • But it is a use ballot measure for the city, and Alan is one of the people on the City Council who support that ballot measure.

  • Their about split, where half supported and half support The mayor's proposal, which will be on the ballot in November, would include less money for youth.

  • Um, and I wanted to ask if you could kind of tell viewers why you're supporting measure.

  • It will measure G, you know, is designed to really provide Resource is two young people in our community, you know, Simply put, my position was, if I'm going to error in this particular ballot initiative, I wanted to err on the side.

  • I think we've tried to provide alternative programs, and service is for youth and too limited success.

  • You know, we still have highly impacted communities like communities I represent in North Sacramento, high concentration of minorities and lower income people.

  • And there's not enough resources to go around, not enough activities to keep you busy year round.

  • So we have spot program.

  • We have the pop artists, and we have summer night lights and summer need.

  • Year round programs keep our young people busy, and I felt like this was a good opportunity to provide.

  • And one thing I want to ask about is Bernie Sanders.

  • Yes, he is the candidate who has again one.

  • California's primary, based on The Associated Press, is projection, which we follow, so we're able to declare him as the winner of California's primary as well.

  • Sure.

  • What's your reaction to that?

  • I'm happy about it.

  • I know Senator Sanders met him several times, Had a chance to talk to him pretty extensively.

  • And you know of the people that I've met in politics, not just presidential candidates, is he just an authentic person?

  • You know, he struck me as somebody who could not be political influence.

  • You know, he has a position, and dispositions are based on real solid principles and ideas.

  • And that made a difference, you know?

  • I mean, over the course of his political career, there have been opportunities for people to move in and out of politics.

  • You see, sometimes people start in politics, and then they go into private practice or private practice, and they come into politics and they bring with them a certain group of fundamental principles, but also companies and people, organizations that they support.

  • And in my experience with Senator Sanders, I mean, he has been consistent in terms of fighting for civil rights.

  • He's fighting for things like climate change, a lot of California focus policies as well.

  • I I went to a rally in San Jose, and he was talking about overhauling cash bail, which California's already done.

  • He's talked about ending private prison, so really California focused message.

  • But I'm curious from your perspective.

  • That's people often say California reflects the views of the country.

  • And as California goes, so goes the rest of the nation.

  • What mo mentum Do you think this might build for Senator Sanders as he goes to these later state?

  • Do not think so.

  • He's fighting, you know, in some ways, you know, when I ran the first time, I was really running against the political institution in an establishment the same thing, you know?

  • I mean, you will see that the established Democratic Party is not necessarily with Senator Sanders.

  • And so you see, that's starting to take shape now, and so it's gonna be very different.

  • But I think he could do it because he has the spirit of young people.

  • I think he's appealing to people off color who know that education is the way out for them to have a better life.

  • And he's talking about, you know, helping people become more educated and then also health care, which is a very, very big issue, and particularly in lower income communities.

  • You see, you don't see that health care providers and institutions being able to provide the types of service is that really required, and often times they are experiencing some of the words health condition, just Theresa had asked.

  • We're talking about the national picture, but you cover City Hall and you have a good sense of what people from Sacramento and the area care about as they're weighing their 2020 options.

  • What do you think we're some of these priorities or top issues?

  • I know Homelessness is a big one.

  • What are some of the ones that California voters in this area are really taken into account when considering whether to support Sanders?

  • Yeah, I think homelessness is a really big one as well.

  • Housing affordability Rents in this area have gone up.

  • They're gonna be looking at those things.

  • But I think just the economy overall, although the economy good place right now, a lot of people are still hurting.

  • You might still be looking for a job, are still looking for a job that will pay enough so that they can afford housing in this area.

  • So I think those air a few of the top thing What about you?

  • What do you think are the top priorities that have influenced voters here today?

  • I think homelessness is probably one.

  • Think health and health care is gonna you know, particularly with the Corona virus right now being so prevalent.

  • I think that's gonna be a really big issue and helping people to make their minds up about to support.

  • And, you know, it's as a as a life long Democrat.

  • Typically, a lot of our philosophies lineup.

  • So the presidential candidates, you know, they're separated by a very thin margins in terms of their ideas and things they want to see happen in the country.

  • I hear they're all big fans of President Trump.

  • Well, what?

  • Sure, but you know, California is really an interesting place.

  • And I think we have been a leader a lot of ways to help determine outcomes in our country.

  • And I think the fact that Senator Sanders has been supported as he has by California and apparently is one this primary, I think it's really gonna be a big shot in the arm to him, and it's really gonna propel him, I think, all the way to the Democratic National Convention I mean, I think, really, this is lining up to be a contestant invention.

  • You know, Senator Biden or Vice President Biden had a great night tonight as well, you know?

  • So it still remains to be seen, but it's looking like the two of them.

  • We're gonna be better for a long time, and I just one more question.

  • Then I had to ask before I send you two off.

  • But as far as Joe Biden goes, we've seen these early Super Tuesday states.

  • I'm left looking back here at this map, and there's a lot that's here for Joe Biden, particularly in the South.

  • And there was this sort of notion that Senator Sanders would have a good shot of getting the majority of Super Tuesday states.

  • Are you had all concerned about what you see on this picture concerns?

  • Probably not the right word.

  • But what I've seen is that endorsement from Mr Clyburn was really big in South Carolina.

  • He's well, and in the South, I think it's really starting to see a role throughout the South.

  • And also what you see is that African American voters, you've heard this before.

  • Probably the most loyal block of Democratic voters in the entire base.

  • And when when Mr Clyburn endorsed Vice President Sanders, I think it really delighted Southern.

  • I'm not certain it's gonna have the same impact west or in the North, but it made a big difference in the South whole City Councilman Alan Warren and our Sacramento Bee Reporter Theresa Club.

  • Thank you guys for coming.

  • Thank you.

  • Thank you, sir.

  • Come for updates.

  • Next one of 10 p.m. Yes.

  • And, uh, I have to note for our listeners as well.
