"with all due respect" to donald that, we bet you wish national teflon day, which is today, would have arrived a little bit earlier. ♪ john: 3 new yorkers, a texan, and buckeye walk into a primary. we will see how that joke ends. after the front-runners defeated by double digits in the badger state, all the candidates turning their sites to this here

empire state. on the democratic side, brooklyn native and former new york senator trying to play up their hometown roots. hillary clinton did a pair of home -- of tv interviews. she took several jobs on "morni ng joe" at bernie sanders. the credit rifle was anything-- >> jeff weaver said something interesting, inflammatory, on air. he said, the clinton campaign, they need to be careful not to destroy the democratic party in pursuit of her own ambition to be president. very strong words. [laughter] your response to that idea. [laughs] these ludicrous on the face of it. i have been campaigning for democrats, fundraising for democrats, recruiting to run and when for a really long time. -- and win for a really long
5:02 pm
time. about 40 years. i understand they are getting anxious, but they need to be thoughtful about what they say. at the end of the day, we need a democratic president. he has been campaigning for a year on his core message of any quality, which i absolutely agree with. i put forth my own plan. in the interview, it seemed unclear as to whether he -- istood how dodd-frank wasn't that surprised there did not seem to be a lot of substance to what he was saying. john: mark, she went after him hard, harder than i have seen her go after him today. do you think she is behaving this way towards sanders because she is worried or because she senses that his jugular is exposed? mark: she's not worried. she knows she is going to be the nominee from her campaign. she is personally frustrated and wants him out of the race. she wants him to stop winning.
5:03 pm
he's not going to get out of the race if he keeps winning primaries. she's trying to go after him to have him stop winning, not because she's worried he will get more delegates, but because she wants him out of the race to focus on the general election. john: sometimes campaigns sling remarks towards their rivals, and it's obvious political posturing. if you know hillary clinton, in the policy wonk that she is, she is personally offended how vapid some of sanders' responses were to those questions. if i answer these questions this way, i would be torn apart. some of that is seeping through here. in addition to frustration, she is also amazed, and in some ways appalled how weak sanders was on substance. mark: if you can beat her in new york, this contest will go to june. hillary clinton will gain no advantage having wrapped up her elimination fight any sooner
5:04 pm
than donald trump or ted cruz. they will go to june the matter what. she wants him out of the race. she's trying to take advantage of a weakness to get him out. she thinks the weaknesses are abundant. whenever advisors knows -- oneo fher advisors knows that new york is a place, where if you are not playing offense, you are playing defense. they want to go after sanders on the context of the looming debate, and the new york media. john: i think that is the case. they know this will be a competitive state. but unlike in wisconsin, where they said they were in trouble, they aret to which competitive -- she is going for the jugular. mark: last night, the vermont senator pulled off a big win in clinton -- against clinton in wisconsin. beating her 57% to 47%. she took 36 delegates. during his victory speech,
5:05 pm
circuit and staffers -- surrogates and staffers appear on television, claiming that they have the momentum for the nomination. you'reoing forward, if making the best case for sanders being the nominee, how does that play out? john: the best case is that he wins in new york. and that momentum out of wisconsin and new york carries him forward to a surprising victory in places like pennsylvania, maybe new jersey. he beats her in california. this is not a high likelihood, but that is the best case for him. he manages to win a bunch of those states and get close enough in the delegates that he can start making the argument he is a better candidate in the general election against trump or cruz. mark: if you can make it here, you can make it anywhere.if you look at the calendar , there are a lot of estates that he can beat her win. -- of
5:06 pm
states that he can beat her in. she needs some prominent superdelegates to express doubts about hillary. jeannie's polls to content -- he him, andls to favor probably another interview event. something with the e-mail investigation, something with the clinton family, something else that causes democrats to say, wait a minute, maybe we should go to the convention like the republicans are doing. john: if you are playing this from sanders' point of view, on the superdelegate front, what they are designed to do is to keep the party from a nominating-- he is performing better than her in most polls, in some cases, substantially better. from his inside, that will in theory, bue a good argument. to say to the superdelegates, you should come to me.
5:07 pm
mark: the "morning joe" interview, when she asked if bernie sanders should get out, she said i tried. winning, she keeps can't argue that he should be out of the race with explicitness. john: that is white new york matters so much. after his win in wisconsin, ted cruz has marginalized john kasich more than ever before. cruz was in the bronx making his first public appearance after his victory speech last night. he met with local pastors and stood before the new york media to unveil a somewhat tweaked anti-trump framing for the new york primary and beyond. sen. cruz: donald can always be counted on to take the high road and to demonstrate class. if he wants to engage in insults, he is welcome to do so. he gets very angry when the voters reject him. the day before yesterday, donald
5:08 pm
victory"mised "a big in wisconsin. not only did he not get that, the men and women of wisconsin were soundly rejected his campaign. the reason is simple -- donald has no solutions to the problems we are facing. he likes to yell and scream and insult and curse. if you want to know what liberal democratic values are, follow donald trump's checkbook, he has been funding these policies. john: mark, you were up in the bronx today, you saw that event. i'm asking the same questions we just asked about sanders. given cruz's win, what's the best case scenario for ted cruz? mark: he's emphasizing the antitrust message, but also the economy. he has to become a populist economic candidate. interestingly today she said you won't hear republicans say this, but bernie sanders is right. bernie sanders says that the rich have gotten to richard under barack obama -- gotten too
5:09 pm
richer under barack obama. he needs an anti-trump message networks and he needs to win. he needs to win in states like wisconsin. it cannot be a one off. it's going to be tough for him. but he has to do surprisingly well in those states. john: i think he has to win one. mark: he has to win indiana. win: if he can pull off a in pennsylvania, where rick santorum once won statewide, it's not impossible. win some of the most conservative congressional districts in california, be able to force a contested convention. and with the strength of his organization, put himself in a position where he can say, the party is rejecting donald trump, he's not a real conservative, come to me because i am a number two. mark: this underground work of lining up delegates. coming up, a deep dive into the battle in the empire state in both parties. after these words from our sponsors. ♪

5:12 pm
mark: after last night's show, we have not heard from donald trump today. tweet earlier today. it said "it's so great to be back home." he plugged his rally tonight, where thousands are expected on long island. the man who built an empire visits to the empire state where he lives. the polls say he's meeting with more than double the numbers of the two remaining rivals, john kasich and ted cruz.
5:13 pm
should cruz even bother campaigning in new york? john: there are different places. there are some districts where they can be competitive. the rules are that if you get over 50, and the others get over 20, you can get all the delegates in the district. john kasich, if i were him, if you are in the delegate accumulation business, i would move on and think about rhode island and connecticut. i would send my limited resources to those places. if i were ted cruz, you could pick up some delegates. mark: some delegates. it is a tough choice. if you don't campaign, you are left out of the narrative. but barring some change, trumpet kills this narrative. -- trump kills this state. he might win every delegate in the state. you were not going to spend money on broadcast television .targeting these individual districts is difficult because of the way
5:14 pm
they are, not fully aligned with media markets. i think they will be here some. but man, trump is in a strong position. private polling shows him well above 50. it's spread across the state. the city has many of the districts he is weakest in. john: potentially we had one of our crack staff talked to the political reporter, who points out the points where trump are weakest are those where those are highly educated. those places are in manhattan, and those places will not favor cruz very well either. to say that donald is a new york i, and have -- new york guy, and have cruz and kasich yeget the hell out of there. mark: i think you'll get about 50 statewide, and he will get a lot of districts. you have to come into television interviews-- john: try and stay in the conversation. mark: i think they are making a
5:15 pm
mistake by trying to pick off delegates. the story in two weeks is going to be -- trump romp. john: it will be investing to see what the cruise campaign does. they are sophisticated about this kind of thing. it will be adjusting to see the next 72-96 hours, whether we see what ted cruz does and where he goes. whether they just fly-- mark: in terms of the narrative and delegate accumulation game, donald j. trump, billionaire. john: after ted cruz won in wisconsin, it's becoming increasingly likely to look at a contested republican convention come july in cleveland. particularlyz, not the most popular guys in washington dc as the grand old party braces for a tense week in the rock 'n roll city, summit and the establishment are looking for a way tonight. this morning -- for a white knight. bill kristol was asked about this question on "morning joe."
5:16 pm
>> who are 2-3 republicans that could get in there? to rico back to the jebs, the marcos? you can't have people that lost before? bill: no i don't think so. no, none of those are quite right. if jon kyl were five years younger. there senior people on the republican side you can imagine a real deadlock saying, you know what, it's it's hard to come up with a name. john: bill kristol does not want donald trump to win at all. like everybody else that does not want him to win, they pray for a contested convention. why or people like kristol and others having such a hard time coming up with the answer that they are picking for? they want this scenario, they need a way tonight. -- a whighte knight. why can't they find him? mark: you need to be someone who
5:17 pm
the establishment will like and the tea party will like. and trump and cruz, at least some other forces would agree with. i have been racking my brain. i brought up dick cheney in front of a group of people, that was left at. bush 41. to me, it's ryan. john: you said bush 41? mark: yeah, he's constitutionally eligible, he has one more term. [laughter] he's comee, but located as -- come located as heck. john: i think ryan is the likely answer, the only answer. mark: the ryan people beat me up on tv and say it's not going to happen. by the same reason he was a contentious choice for speaker. he has moderate positions on immigration, etc. john: the dude is really conservative. he's really conservative.
5:18 pm
mark: and paul ryan would go into a general election ready, picking up from a standing start at the convention. john: not only that, he has run a national campaign as mitt romney's running mate. for a lot of conservatives, he was reassuring when mitt romney put him on the ticket. he is tested in that sense. he could have a fresh start without having to be totally green, in terms of a national campaign. i think he is the ideal answer. has to say that. ryan has to say he's not interested, just like he said he wasn't interested in the speaker until the moment when, if there is a deadlock, they turned to the man. coming up, we kick back into cruz control. we talked to nbc's holly jackson about the cruz future right after this. ♪

mark: is mentioned, ted cruz took his post wisconsin victory like any wisconsin -- any texas native ago, to the bronx. -- texas native would go, to the bronx. in any other city, this would be a simple event. a candidate goes to a restaurant, needs community leaders, but in gossip city, there ain't nothing simple.

[chatter] john you can see a bit of a meda mark:. cruz had to push through a swarm of journalist just to talk with any voters and to get to his own dress. protesters shouted, reporters got shoved. requests in multiple languages. i got hit by a camera a minute after i arrived. here is one of the reporters that -- that deserves combat pay, elly jackson, who covers cruz. >> not my camera that hit you in the head. mark: one of your cameras that was allegedly there hit me in the head too. you asked about what i was going to ask about, cruz talking about new york values as a negative thing. how does a guy that much trashes ,ew york, including today although mostly new york leaders -- how dizzy appeal to -- how
5:23 pm
does he appeal to new yorkers? >> you said it and heard it from him here today. he is shifting a little bit. he's calling it liberal democratic values that just so happened to be in new york. he's trying to make the case to conservatives in places like western new york. did you notice that? he said, people in western new york, they get what i'm talking about. the same argument he made against donald trump months ago. pennsylvania is another place he wants to compete. the campaign season is the second phase in his strategy. cruz has been able to show with wins in iowa and utah that he can bring together the evangelical vote, the social conservative vote. they need to show that they can pick up moderate and someone conservatives and bring together the 50% of the republican party -- 60% of the ruble can party that want to stop donald trump. john: his campaign is well
5:24 pm
organized. the congressional districts in this state with the highest education level, therefore less prone to the trump message, or around the five boroughs. these are not particularly hospitable areas for ted cruz. what does he do to unlock the democratic and geographic riddle that is new york? >> first, acknowledging that this is a bumpy road for ted cruz. i don't think the campaign thinks they will beat donald trump here, especially not when you look at polling, especially from monmouth, showing that he is breaking 50% in polls. the strategy seems to be to play in geographic locations in new york. he will be in albany tomorrow, of state, to focus on those areas -- upstates, to focus on those areas. also areas with a smaller number of conservatives within the district. using that organization to drill down and get out the vote and do that man-to-man coverage that the campaign likes to do to turn those conservatives out to vote
5:25 pm
for cruz. mark: he talked in wisconsin about jobs, those one of the three buzzwords. he mentioned unlocking the potential of the economy. is he saying anything specific about what he would do as president? >> he is drilling on his economic message -- we saw that in wisconsin. he had a whole new slogan. it was jobs, security, and freedom. tois using that to appeal some of the industrial midwest industrial conservative. what you are seeing is a shift to coalition based campaigning. you're going to see him talking to -- you saw him with the women for ted cruz event, with heidi cruz. mark: does he ever talk about his tax plan? >> he absolutely does. it was part of his original stump speech before the flat tax. something you hear not just from ted cruz, but people that like in. someone back in wisconsin said but i like trump and cruz,
5:26 pm
the issue of taxes is important to me and i want a flat tax. we said to him, that is ted cruz' policy, and he said huh. mark: did he mentioned the flat tax in his speech last night? i did not hear it. >> let me pull up my verbatim on my phone. mark: i did not hear any specifics about what he would do about jobs. >> will see more about moving forward. -- we will see more of that moving forward. you will see him, i think, talk about this more with these different groups, but ending the message at members of the african-american community or hispanic community, like you saw in the bronx. john: there were some discussion a few weeks about about the notion that cruz and kasich might overlay or collaborate because of the challenge they face. cruz is saying that he wants john kasich out of the race.
5:27 pm
is there any chance they will work together over the course of the coming weeks? >> i am told no. that the bottom line is, when you have the same goal, to not let trump gets nomination, you will get to the same end. and aide told me recently, they only started modeling out kasich within the last couple weeks. the fact that he is still in the race is different than they expected as far as this point in the campaign. is that all we get? mark: that's all we get. come back. the show is only an hour. john: a chair easier waiting for you -- chair is here waiting for you. mark: great moments in campaign history after this. ♪

i'm disappointed you did not call me bubba. [laughter] clinton backs bill in 1992. guests welltwo remember, bill clinton helped the election in that year. now the empire state is key for the campaign for hillary clinton, just like her husband. adam, i want to start with you. try to convey to anyone who does not understand what a competitive new york primary on the democratic side -- try to convey what that is like. adam: every time there is a primary, people hear new yorkers talking about it, thinking it's not true. new york invented 24/7 before
5:31 pm
there was 24/7. one of the last places in the world where you have a competitive newspaper culture. you have larger than life reporters who know how to make news, who view their role as trying to provoke, prod candidates. you also have players in the otherf mario cuomo and that like to metal. -- and others that like to meddle, link you see with bill de blasio. it is a believable -- an unbelievable stew. after he had been tackled -- protester, i don't think he was having a new york kind of time. mark: i don't want to talk about the gold old days. but i was at this curz event in the bronx. -- cruz event in the bronx. two questions were from national reporters. in my day, if two national reporters tried to dominate the
5:32 pm
press for conference, there would be a revolt. i don't see a tabloid conversation, i don't see local news covering politics the way they used to. is this a toned down, slimmed-down new york primary compared to 1992? >> well sure, absolutely. you have a lot more local talk radio in new york in the 1990's that you don't have now. i think there is a story you are missing, which is this is the first time in our lifetimes that a republican primary is going to matter at all in any way, shape, or form. you think that trump hasn't in the bag. but there are 400,000 republicans registered in new york city to whom nobody has ever made the slightest gesture, ever. we are not talking about except running for congress, no one has
5:33 pm
ever looked after them or talked to them. mark: bush did a little bit. >> a little bit, in 201. but in 2012, you have congressional districts in which 3000 people voted in the republican primary. possibilities the of playing retail politics games here on the part of trump, cruz and kasich, that has never happened before in new york. mark: adam, from 3000 miles away, but watching closely, what do you think bernie sanders' potential is to make mischief for early clinton in the next two weeks? adam: i think it is high. i think one of the reasons is because of the new york tabloid culture. new york reporters have always liked to stir it up. they liked taking it to clinton. i think bernie sanders gets it. -- other side, bill clinton
5:34 pm
hillary clinton and donald trump know the new york culture we are talking about. i think it's a bit early. they know how to play it, and that will matter a lot. we saw the shortfalls. , really getting it when -- i'm not really getting it when sanders did that interview. i'm sure he thought, the daily news, who cares. he made it to arthur brown. if you have been around new york, guys like that are legends. they may not be getting up to the bronx as often as they used to. but they are factors and they want to make an impact. >> can i make a contrary argument? the daily news interview was a disaster for sanders, if you assume that the sanders motor cares about issues. -- sanders voter cares about issues. this is the reverse mirror for trump. . they are voting on feeling
5:35 pm
screwed, pitchfork in the banks. we read this and think, this guy can't possibly allowed to be resident, he doesn't know anything and is babbling about nothing. in here sanders is, having won 6 straight, polling 10-11 points behind hillary. mark: that is the point, in the culture of the new york hothouse media, maybe it does not deter sanders votors, but it creates a firestorm. >> the question is how stoked are hillary supporters anywhere? in wisconsin, her voters in the exit polls said 13% were enthusiastic about her possibility for being president. 13%. i don't know that there is stoking. that is the big question. mark: you cover hillary clinton in this state.
5:36 pm
is now a decade since she was elected statewide. she was elected twice statewide. ldes she still have a real ho over the new york democratic electorate, or is she vulnerable in a significant way? adam: i would not assume for a s econd, if i was in brooklyn, that she still has a hold. she has to work for it. the event is she has -- the advantage she has is that she gets the culture, she has lived through the campaign. run 2sband has campaigns there. i don't think there is a kind of hard connection to hillary clinton among new york voters. there was for bill clinton and others over the years. that said, if i had a choice, i would rather be her than bernie sanders in this culture. mark: john, let me ask you this question is a matter of what you
5:37 pm
would do if you were hillary clinton. bernie sanders will have huge rallies. 15,000 people, she will never have crowds like that and she never has. what did she do to counter the perception that bernie sanders will show up in new york and be generating on this enthusiasm very visibly in front of these cameras? john: i would do a lot of local media. i would talk to every columnist i could talk to. ync 18 times in two weeks to get exactly those moderate to liberal voters in new york city, to remind them how they like her./ i would play that card. she also needs to boost her vote, african-americans in some of these northern states. among votes african-americans in some of these northern states. in the south, she was getting 90-92% of the african-american vote. if she can get that number up,
5:38 pm
she will be solid in new york. there is no indication that she has that incredibly high percentage in the bank. mark: adam, we have to go in a second. yes or no, will we see trump rise in the subway or eat a condition before the primary? >> yes on subway. on subway. he is a german folk. -- germaphobe. >> he doesn't have high tastes. mark: he uses a fork sometime. adam, please come back to new york in the next 2 weeks. please, we need you here. john, please state here. we need you here too. coming up, we sit down and talk politics with kevin smiley. if you are watching us in washington dc, you can listen to us on bloomberg radio 99.1 f.m.

5:50 pm
you would not necessarily find the winter. the majority of dollars spent on the republican side, some candidates are not in the race anymore. donald trump only spent $18 million on it tv advertising. mark: in wisconsin, where the two underdogs won, what was spending like? ken: in wisconsin, $8.4 million spent on tv at. $3.4 million on the democratic side, $5 million on the republican side. interestingly, going back to the national numbers, overall bernie has outspent hillary $59 million to $51 million. his advantage in wisconsin was even more pronounced. the sanders campaign spent over 4 million on -- $2. television and the clinton campaign spent $1 million. more fragmented on the republican side. i like to break things out as trump or not trump.

has placed. mark: do you expect either contest to have a lot of television advertising, or too expensive? ken: i think it's the ultimate tell. you were talking about before, if you were the strategist for each of the campaigns, especially on the republican side, would you even play in new york, and how heavy would you play? i have to believe those are decisions being made in those inside meetings in the cruz campaign or the super pacs supporting him. you can't play a little bit in new york. if you go in with television, it has to be a lot of money. it made not be the best -- it may not be the best use of their bucks. they may want to save it for primaries down the line. john: can goldstein, you are as always much a genius. coming back, we have hypotheticals with a game that we like to call in gauging and hypotheticals. -- call "engaging in
