Results from the Nov. 8 Election are in.

To breakdown what happened where in the U.S. and in California, we've invited several people to offer their expertise on what happens next.

We start with the Political Junkie Ken Rudin for a half-hour discussion of the presidential race, which Republican candidate Donald Trump won in an upset over Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.

Next, our Capitol Bureau Chief Ben Adler will join Insight to recap which of the 17 ballot measures passed or failed. He will also talk about congressional races, of which Kamala Harris nailed a Senate win, while Ami Bera won a contentious battle for District 7.

Sacramento Mayor-Elect Darrell Steinberg describes his reactions about the election results as upset, but says he will pledge to work on what he promised in his campaign for mayor.

Stockton Record columnist Mike Fitzgerald joins after to debrief Michael Tubbs' victory in the Stockton Mayoral Race.

YubaNet reporter Pascale Fusshoeller gives an update on the results from Nevada County.

Jim Smith from the Woodland Daily Democrat says there was a great deal of resignation from voters in Yolo County. He says he found that odd for a rural area.

Reno Gazette-Journal reporter Seth Richardson describes the scene in Nevada, where background checks on guns were approved and recreational marijuana will now be legal.

A complete guide to the general election results can be found here.
