5:31 pm
breaking news for the millions of americans prescribed painkillers. major new guidelines tonight. why the cdc is so concerned. and your money. your taxes. three deductions many people often forget. are you leaving money on the table? good evening as we come on the air in the west with breaking news tonight in the race for the white house. as i said, major victories already for donald trump and hillary clinton. the polls now closed in all five primary states. based on our analysis of the vote, abc news projecting that donald trump will win the republican primary in florida. and on the democratic side, hillary clinton will be the winner in florida, as well. hillary clinton also picking up a victory in north carolina tonight. but make no mistake, all eyes at this hour remain on ohio. the early vote showing john kasich, the governor of ohio, leading donald trump, of course, as ill mentioned, the governor
5:32 pm
there, but this race is far too early to call. this could change. and on the democratic side, hillary clinton in the lead in ohio, but we're not ready to call the race on the democratic side, either. ohio, of course, crucial for hillary clinton tonight, as she tries to prevent another sanders surprise like michigan last week. so far, it is encouraging for team clinton, but again, we're not calling the race yet. donald trump telling voter s today, we can make this happen tonight. if he wins ohio, he could essentially wrap up the nomination. clinton in the delegate lead on the democratic side, but ohio would give her significant fuel toward the nomination. and right now, what voters are telling us in the exit polls. from ohio tonight, republican voters asked, would they be satisfied if this ends up being a race between donald trump and hillary clinton? more than half, 52%, say they'd be satisfied with trump. in florida, even more, 62% say they'd be satisfied if it's trump versus clinton. and it's all preliminary exit poll data. abc's tom llamas leads us off in florida tonight with the winners, and the first casualty
5:33 pm
tonight. senator marco rubio, saying just moments ago, my campaign is suspended. he is out of the race. >> reporter: tonight, donald trump trying to barrel his way to the republican nomination. asking voters for one more big boost. >> tell your friends, vote for trump. i promise you, i am going to do such a great job. you're going to say, that's the single greatest vote i ever cast. >> reporter: but in ohio, the state's popular governor, trump's biggest obstacle. john kasich, voting today in westerville. >> what do you have to say to donald trump today? >> you're not going to ruin my day after i voted myself for president. i have nothing to say to him. >> reporter: without ohio, trump's chances of locking up the republican nomination, greatly diminish. potentially forcing the battle to a rare contested convention. kasich today turning up the heat. reacting to this anti-trump commercial -- >> bimbo. >> dog. >> fat pig. >> real quotes from donald trump about women. >> reporter: -- that uses the billionaire's own sexist words about women.
5:34 pm
>> these comments that were made about women. i have two daughters. they see this stuff. what do you think they think? >> reporter: trump responding on "gma." >> women, if you look at the women's polling, leaving the booths, women i'm leading by a lot. >> reporter: the billionaire still defensive over the recent scenes of violence at his rallies. in washington today, a scolding from house speaker paul ryan. >> all candidates have an obligation to do what they can do to try and provide an atmosphere of harmony, to reduce the violence, to not incite violence. >> reporter: but trump telling us, he's not changing his tone. >> i don't think i should be toning it down, because, you know, i've had the biggest rallies of anybody. and we have had very, very little difficulty. >> reporter: trump in florida tonight, where there was a bilingual battle to deny him a win. [ speaking foreign language ] >> reporter: florida senator marco rubio, his campaign on life support, was counting on a home state win.
5:35 pm
>> we're going to get elected president and we're going to turn this country around. >> reporter: but it didn't happen. >> while it is not god's plan that i be president in 2016, or maybe ever, and while today, my campaign is suspended -- the fact that i've even come this far is evidence of how special america truly is. >> so, senator rubio suspending his campaign tonight. if you can't win your home state, you're in trouble, right tom? >> reporter: that's right, david. and many people thought senator marco rubio was going to be a republican savior. young, hispanic and conservative. tonight, he acknowledged maybe his biggest mistake, he did not take the trump movement seriously, saying, we should have seen it coming. but he was also critical of trump, david, saying he is preying on people's frustrations. >> and tom, you are at trump headquarters tonight. they are still waiting on ohio, of course, the crucial state for donald trump. >> reporter: it's going to be so important for donald trump. now, if he doesn't win ohio, this gets much tougher for him and this could possibly lead to
5:36 pm
a contested convention, but we're waiting for trump just behind me. a lot of the people from palm beach have started to fill in, and 16 shand leerps in this gold-lined ballroom, david. >> tom llamas, thank you. we'll see you shortly. to the democratic side this evening. can hillary clinton lock in the nomination or at least get far closer, or is there a sanders surprise brewing like michigan? preliminary exit polls from ohio showing nearly three-quarters of democratic voters say they'd be satisfied if clinton is the nominee. bull nearly as many, if it's sanders. and where clinton was born, illinois, nearly three-quarters satisfied with clinton, but even more there if sanders is the nominee. abc' cease celia vega one-on-one with mrs. clinton. cecilia has a very excited crowd already. do they like what they're seeing there? >> reporter: they sure do, david. this florida win was huge for hillary clinton. you can see behind me, it is a victory party in here tonight. >> i hope you all vote before the polls close. >> reporter: tonight, hillary
5:37 pm
clinton was hoping to avoid another stinging loss to bernie sanders. >> i need your prayers. oh, i need your prayers. >> reporter: hoping to once and for all lock in the nomination. clinton telling me, she's optimistic. but not confident? that's a word a lot of your supporters might want to hear you say. >> okay, i'm confident. i think optimistic is basically the same thing. i'm confident. i feel very good about the campaign. >> reporter: is tonight the night you could close this deal? >> i feel good about where we are and i think at the end of the night, we'll end up, again, significantly ahead in delegates. >> reporter: but when i pressed her -- if you lose the midwest tonight, do you still declare victory? >> you know, you keep asking me these questions, which i've answered repeatedly. i will end up this evening with more delegates. this is about delegates. >> reporter: for sanders, everything is on the line. >> good morning. >> good luck, good luck. >> reporter: but the vermont senator needs more than good luck. he needs delegates. >> how are you feeling about tonight? >> i'll tell you in a few hours. >> reporter: clinton already looking ahead to the general election and donald trump.
5:38 pm
>> when you are inciting mob violence, which is what trump is doing in those clips, there's a lot of memories that people have. you know, they're in the dna. people remember mob violence that led to lynching. >> reporter: trump says he hasn't even started to hit clinton yet. this could be a general campaign that is very ugly and very personal. does that give you any pause? >> no, not a bit. >> reporter: your face doesn't even move. >> no, not a bit. he can run whatever kind of campaign he wants. i have really thick skin and it's not about me. it's about every american and what we're going to do together. >> and cecilia vega back with us live tonight. she said she's feeling optimistic. you pressed her there. she revealed she is feeling confident. and the clinton team must be happy, but i gather they are remaining mum on ohio so far? >> reporter: exactly, david. but what's happening here in florida is a big win for them. there are more delegates up for grabs in this state than any other state that voted so far. but about the big state, ohio, they are all eyes there right now, because, look.
5:39 pm
bernie sanders is expected to do well with young voters and white voters there and that could be a real worry for them. we expect her to take the stage any minute here in florida. >> let me ask you quickly, the fact that she's taking the stage so early on in the night, is that an indication that they like what they are seeing so far in ohio? >> reporter: well, it's an indication they are certainly happy about north carolina and they are certainly happy about florida. but they are holding their breath to see ohio. that is the big one for them. they need to win there. they're optimistic at this point. >> all right, cecilia vega on the campaign every step of the way. cecilia, thank you. to the map we go at this hour. five key states holding primaries today. the stakes enormous in ohio for both parties. we got a kick out of the front page of "the cincinnati inquirer" today. "ohio, it is up to you." let's get right to jonathan karl tonight. what happens if donald trump wins in ohio, what happens if he loses there? >> reporter: well, after his win in florida, if he wins in ohio, he really seals the deal. donald trump will be well on his way to clinching the republican
5:40 pm
nomination. it will take some time, but well on his way. if he loses, david, that means we almost certainly will see a contested republican convention in cleveland this summer. >> but jon, you heard cecilia point out that team clinton holding its breath tonight on ohio. she's in the lead, but still too close to call. how important is ohio for hillary clinton tonight? >> reporter: well, it's less crucial because hillary clinton is going to leave tonight with more delegates, whether or not she wins ohio. but symbolically, it is enormously important, because hillary clinton needles to show that she can win in those all-important industrial midwest states. especially after bernie sanders beat her in michigan. she would really like to show that she can win in ohio. no state in the midwest is more important. >> and jon, real quick, you've been pouring through the exit polls and you found a really interesting number on the republican side. >> reporter: yeah, take a look at this. republicans when it comes to donald trump, 27% said they would not vote for him if he is the republican nominee in the
5:41 pm
fall. 27%. but what's interesting, david, is, very similar numbers for john kasich, marco rubio and ted cruz. bottom line, we have a very divided republican party. >> and, of course, marco rubio now out of the race tonight. jon karl, stay with us. we'll see you a little later. stay with abc news as the primary results come in. we're live throughout this night. and team coverage first thing in the morning on "good morning america" and, of course, right here tomorrow night on "world news tonight." meantime this evening, the other breaking headline, a tornado watch across several states at this hour, including illinois and missouri, where they are voting. and in ohio, this tornado sweeping through in the past 24 hours. from south carolina tonight, dangerous driving. a hailstorm near greenville. ginger zee is standing by, but first, abc's alex perez in the storm zone. >> reporter: tonight, ohio residents recovering. >> get underneath something sturdy. >> reporter: those five confirmed tornadoes tearing through the dayton area. >> i looked out the window and the whole neighbor's house was coming at it.
5:42 pm
>> reporter: ripping the roof of this house. that same system, pounding south carolina with that golf ball-sized hail. in louisiana, the national guard using black hawk helicopters to fight flooding, dropping these 1,500-pound sandbags northwest of alexandria. and tonight, the sabine river partially shutting down a major highway, interstate 10. the swollen waterways devastating communities along the border with texas. our philip mena is in deweyville. >> reporter: here in deweyville, water from the sabine just keeps coming, shattering 100-year-old flood records here. right now, we are floating down a state highway. water as far as the eye can see. >> reporter: russell jacks losing both his home and his restaurant. >> all washed away. there are just no words for it. >> reporter: and david, the severe weather not over yet. here in chicago, and across a huge chunk of the midwest, tonight, bracing for another storm that could bring large hail and possibly more tornadoes. david?
5:43 pm
>> alex, thank you. chief meteorologist ginger zee tracking it all and, again, ginger, this affects millions of voters? >> reporter: that's right, david. this area of severe weather reaches all the way from parts of northeast missouri to southwest michigan. the enhanced threat area has a tornado watch that is in effect for tonight until 9:00 p.m. so, cities like peoria, davenport, springfield, all on alert. this beast is going to move to the north and east, and of course, these low pressure systems rotate counter clockwise, so, you pick up speed on the back side. high wind warnings from des moines to milwaukee to chicago, most of your day wednesday into early thursday. snow on the north side. david? >> ginger, thank you. to your health tonight, and a major new headline about prescription pain pills and addiction. the cdc tonight for the first time issuing guidelines for prescribing painkillers. opioids. and it comes after our reporting on pain pills and heroin, those brave families. sabrina lost her son, a football injury, pain pills and then heroin. laurie lost her feonephew, prescription pain pills after an
5:44 pm
injury during a training exercise. doug lost his daughter, courtney, too. and we went to the dea, the federal drug enforcement administration, and listen to what they told us. >> when someone becomes addicted to prescription drugs, it becomes extremely expensive, hard to find, the medicine cabinet becomes empty at home. and they take that long, dark walk towards heroin. >> and why is that? is it the same high? >> it's the same high. it's an opioid-based drug. it's a natural progression. >> you know, we heard from so many of you at home, so many parents after our hour on pain pills and then heroin and addiction. so, let's get right to our chief medical editor, dr. richard besser tonight, because this new action from the cdc, it would seem they know they have a crisis on their hands. >> reporter: yeah, they do. there are 40 deaths a day from these opioid pain medications. doctors are prescribing far too many and for far too long. >> i was surprised there weren't guidelines before now. but what are the guidelines tonight? >> reporter: well, they are saying, doctors, when they are treating patients with chronic pain, they should start with aspirin or ibuprofen, or non-drug approaches like exercise therapy. they say there's no evidence that opioids work long-term and
5:45 pm
we know they lead to addiction and can be fatal. for those people who have pain, acute pain, after surgery, they can be treated for three days, seven at the most and switch to something that is much safer. >> yeah, because you about stories of weeks if not months on these opioids, so, they're saying three to seven days? >> reporter: that's right. >> all right. rich, thank you. we'll stay on this. in the meantime, there is still much more ahead on "world news tonight" this tuesday. the major subway system shut down in an american city. also breaking, the manhunt new developments coming in at this hour. a police officer shot, critically wounded. police returning fire. one suspect dead. and new details coming in now. of course, tax season is here. the real money team back at it tonight, saving you money. are you leaving cash on the table? three simple tips, right after the break. and dust off the hat, crack the whip. a big announcement tonight about indiana jones. we'll be right back on this super tuesday.
5:46 pm
whoa. what's going on here? oh hey allison. i'm val, the orange money retirement squirrel from voya. val from voya? yeah, val from voya. quick question, what are voya retirement squirrels doing in my house? we're putting away acorns. you know, to show the importance of saving for the future. so you're sort of like a spokes person? no, i'm more like a metaphor. okay, a spokes-metaphor. no, i'm... you're a spokes-metaphor. yeah. ok. see how voya can help you get organized at voya.com. once i left the hospital after a dvt blood clot. what about my wife... ...what we're building together... ...and could this happen again? i was given warfarin in the hospital, but wondered, was this the best treatment for me? i spoke to my doctor and she told me about eliquis. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots and reduces the risk of them happening again. not only does eliquis treat dvt and pe blood clots. but eliquis also had significantly less major bleeding than the standard treatment. knowing eliquis had both...
5:47 pm
...turned around my thinking. don't stop eliquis unless you doctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious, and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily... and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. eliquis treats dvt & pe blood clots. plus had less major bleeding. both made switching to eliquis right for me. ask your doctor if it's right for you. 80% but up to 90% fall short in getting key nutrients from food alone. let's do more. add one a day women's 50+ complete multivitamin. with vitamin d and calcium to help support bone health. one a day.
5:48 pm
back now here in the west and tonight, millions of americans of course preparing their taxes. this evening, the real money team is back, with three more deductions many people forget. here's abc's chief business correspondent rebecca jarvis now. >> reporter: there are $1.3 trillion in tax breaks up for grabs. but finding which ones you're eligible for can be a daunting task. especially if you're doing your taxes yourself. >> americans are missing out on lots of deductions and credits. >> reporter: we poured over the tax code, all 6,544 pages of it, and hit the street to flag some of the most overlooked areas. first up, child care. working parents may qualify for a day care or babysitting credit for kids under 13. up to $6,000 for child care. >> that's money that i'm missing out on. >> reporter: medical bills. remember, you may be able to deduct what you spend on depende dependent's health care costs, even mileage from taking a loved one, including your parents, to
5:49 pm
and from the doctor can count. >> that's good news to know. >> reporter: and if you're relocating for a job more than 50 miles away, those moving expenses are deductible. you could deduct the cost of your pet. moving your pet for a job. >> holy cow. i had no idea. >> reporter: david, anyone making less than $62,000 a year is also eligible for free file software. that's free tax preparation help through the irs. david? >> keep the tips coming. rebecca, thank you. when we come back, the major subway system shutting down for more than 24 hours. also breaking now, new details on a terrifying manhunt in the south. an officer shot. and then big news tonight about a hollywood favorite. that's right. new headline about u.indiana jones. but not every insurance company understands the life behind it. for those who've served and the families that have supported them,

never a dull moment in the race for 2016. and we do have breaking news from ohio at this hour. based on analysis of the vote, abc news now projecting that hillary clinton will win the ohio democratic primary. as we've been reporting throughout the newscast, a very important state for hillary clinton. and we can now report on the republican side that governor casic of ohio has won ohio, on the republican side. and we join the special report for the entire network. stay tuned. this is an abc news special report. your voice, your vote. now reporting, george stephanopoulos. we are coming on the air now with breaking news in the race for the white house. it is big news from the critical state of ohio. abc news can project that governor john kasich has
5:54 pm
defeated donald trump in his home state. he'll get all 66 delegates there tonight. i'm here with our political analyst matthew dowd, and matt, this is big news. because it dramatically increases that no republican is going to have the delegates they need before the convention in cleveland. >> the odds of a contested convention go up dramatically. it stops donald trump's moment m momentum. it's likely to be a major fight on the convention floor of who will be the gop nominee. >> have not seen anything like it since 1976. let's go to jon karl at the delegate map. >> george, it all comes down to those delegates. if you look at where things stand now, donald trump has less than half of the delegates he needs to win to clinch and already 60% have been allocated. john kasich, way down at 129 now, but here's the key. marco rubio's gone. he will now get those votes and hope to go into the convention with enough delegates to wage a battle on the convention floor against donald trump. >> unchartered waters now for the republicans.
5:55 pm
for the democrats, hillary clinton has won florida, north carolina and ohio. still waiting on illinois and missouri. you can get all the latest results on abcnews.com. i'll see you tomorrow on "gma." have a good night. >> this has been a special report from abc news. thank you, george, matt and jon. we continue with our live breaking coverage here on "world news tonight" of the race for president and as you just heard, major developments from ohio. first, abc news now projecting that on the democratic side, hillary clinton will win there in ohio. the democratic primary. and on the republican side, john kasich, the governor of that state. this is a huge upset for donald trump. i want to get to cecilia vega, who is at hillary clinton's headquarters to check the temperature in that room. we know that mrs. clinton expected to speak shortly. cecilia, give us -- i can hear it already. over to you. >> reporter: david, it's really loud in here. tough for me to hear you.
5:56 pm
she's expected to take the stage at any minute. when the results from ohio came into this room here, this crowd is erupting in absolute cheers. this is the state that hillary clinton wanted and needed to win. one aide telling me right now that, look, this is the result, i had just asked for a response, they said sanders' harsh negativity could have backfired there. he campaigned hard there. he outspent there in ads in ohio and they expected him to do especially well with young voters. and white voters in that state. we also know that she won florida, this is a state that she wanted to win, because the delegate count is so high here and right now, david, it is really feeling like that victory party in this room. a very good night for hillary clinton. >> and we've all covered these presidential campaigns, cecilia. i gather that the clinton team knows with hillary clinton approaching the microphone at 9:00 p.m. eastern time, she's going to have quite an audience tonight to try to make the case to try to wrap up this nomination. >> reporter: that's certainly the case. hillary clinton has been saying
5:57 pm
all along, this campaign is about winning delegates. and that's what she's been trying to do. one state at a time. when the ohio results came in, one senior aide was in this room here jumping and clapping. that's what a huge victory this is for them. she needed to win here, and she really -- there was so much focus on ohio after that bruising loss in michigan. she did not want to go into a general election with a loss like ohio, a bell weather state on her hands here. and lose to bernie sanders, once again in that state. we have not yet heard from bernie sanders' campaign tonight. ohio was a state he was really hoping to win. no words so far. he is holding his election night event in arizona this evening. the next state up on the ballot where he is looking to do some damage there. >> let's bring in abc's come name yas, covering republican side of this campaign from the start. i gather there at trump headquarters, have they reacted yet to john kasich winning in ohio. >> reporter: they really had
5:58 pm
sort of a tepid response, if you will. tonight was still a big win for donald trump. he won in florida. he will take those 99 delegates. but the race for the nomination just got tougher. without ohio, he's going to fight harder, and this could eventually lead to a contested convention. just behind me, there are hundreds of trump supporters here in palm beach. it is much more like versailles than it is the white house. gold trim, 16 chandeliers all around us. and, of course, the trump bottled water. senator marco rubio, who many thought was going to be the republican savior, because he was young, he was hispanic and conservative, dropping out of the race tonight after losing his home state. and he acknowledged, maybe his biggest mistake, and maybe the establishment's biggest mistake, they did not see donald trump coming. david? >> tom llamas, cecilia vega, our thanks to you. our political team on this first thing in the morning on "good morning america." we'll >>. it's turning point tuesday,
5:59 pm
live coverage of the votes today that could tip the balance of the presidential election. >> hollywood heavy hitters defending the academy, how the academy responded to allegations it was unfair to asian americans. >> we have the opportunity to offer unprecedented emergency gamers. >> the new deties vice that can take you far away, no rocket required. >> a bay area man paying extra to get more inches of leg room but was it worth it? 7 on your side looks at economy plus. we begin with major developments tonight in what is turning out to be a critical tuesday primary. hillary clinton left led florida and ohio.
6:00 pm
and let's take a look live at hillary clinton's victory party in west palm beach, florida. the crowd is fired up. let's listen to her. >> our supporter as -- across the country, our campaign earned more votes than any other candidate, democrat or republican. and i want to congratulate senator sanders for the vigorous campaign he's waging. today, all of you in the state where contests were held voted to break down the barriers and so everyone of us can share in the promise of america. you voted. you voted. yo
