Missing masterpieces materialized in reflective relief from a lack of light.

Those stories are coming up today on CNN STUDENT NEWS.

But we're starting with election results and some votes of note from Tuesday.

This man, Bill de Blasio, is set to be the next mayor of the nation's largest city, New York.

He is the first Democrat elected to the mayor's office since 1989.

In Virginia, a close race for governor ended in victory for Democratic candidate Terry McAuliffe.

Virginia doesn't allow governors to serve consecutive terms, so the current governor wasn't running for reelection.

Just the opposite in New Jersey, though, Republican Governor Chris Christie was reelected Tuesday night.

It was a big win, too,

with the exit poll showing that Governor Christie got more votes than his opponent from voters in almost every age group.

Some analysts think that display of electability, Governor Christie's ability to get support from voters, sends a message about the next office he might run for.

One unmistakable takeaway, Chris Christie now has the premier brand in Republican politics.

Look at this map.

New Jersey is known as a reliably blue state in presidential politics.

Well, in sweeping to landslide reelection, Chris Christie turned almost the entire map red.

Electability will be his argument now, as he makes the case.

He is a strong Republican contender for 2016 in the presidential race.

Chris Christie can argue, I won the women's vote, I won the men's vote.

No gender gap for me.

He will also argue powerfully that not only did he carry the white vote big, but among African-Americans,

even though his Democratic challenge who won the African American vote, Chris Christie, 21 percent of the African-American vote, more than double his take from four years ago.

Compare that to Mitt Romney and compare that to John McCain.

Chris Christie will say he can broaden the Republican base.

Even more importantly, in making that argument, the electability argument, Chris Christie actually carrying the Latino vote in the state of New Jersey with the slight majority there.

Again, think about Nevada, think about New Mexico, think about Florida, other presidential battleground states Latinos are critical constituency.

Chris Christie will make the case I'm the more electable Republican.

If there is a dent in the electability argument, it is this:

in his home state as he won a sweeping reelection voters will ask: what if you had Hillary Clinton versus Chris Christie in 2016?

Well, Hillary Clinton carrying a narrow victory over Chris Christie.

A bit of a dent in the electability argument.

With that poll number ...

After the states we covered in our first story, the ones in today's "Roll Call" might look a little familiar.

New Jersey, the Jackson Memorial High Jaguars put the Garden State on today's mat.

Virginia-how about the Wolverines from Woodgrove High in Purcellville, Virginia.

And New York, specifically, the city of Hamburg and the Hamburg High Bulldogs.

Thanks for watching, everybody!

Every month, the city of Greece, New York, holds a public board meeting to talk about the town's government.

Since 1999, those meetings have started with the prayer.

But now, the U.S. Supreme Court is considering whether that policy is unconstitutional.

Yesterday, the court's nine justices heard arguments about whether or not the board meeting prayers violate the establishment clause.

That's the part of the First Amendment that says, Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion.

In other words, government won't endorse a specific religion.

City officials in Greece say they aren't-they say they have invited people from a wide variety of faiths to offer invocations.

But the plaintiffs in this case argue that the prayers at city board meetings have been overwhelmingly Christian.

During yesterday's Supreme Court hearing, some justices discuss whether lawmakers in courts should advise faith on what to say, what language is considered religious.

The Supreme Court's ruling is expected by early next summer.

It's time for "The Shoutout."

What do Marc Chagall, Canaletto and Gustave Courbet have in common?

If you think you know it, then shout it out!

Are they all U.N. Secretaries General, artists, Nobel Peace Prize winners or novelists?

You've got three seconds, go!

Chagall, Canaletto and Courbet are all famous painters.

That's your answer and that's your "Shoutout."
