7:16 am
he has not campaigned in super tuesday states. he doesn't have a field organization. really, his path is to maybe get 20% in california, be competitive in texas, try to do well in massachusetts, do well in colorado, sweep the south. bernie sanders is doing well in massachusetts, possibly leading in massachusetts, where elizabeth warren's home state, and minnesota, amy klobuchar's home state. could be the end of their campaigns after super tuesday. >> a lot is at stake. we have real suspense tomorrow night. we'll see you tomorrow for our super tuesday coverage. bring you the results live as we get them. starts at 8:00/7:00 central. we'll be on until the wee hours. we have breaking news from the business world. jack welch, legendary former ceo of general electric, has died. jo ling kent joins us with a look at his legacy. what a legacy it was.

8:46 am
things, you're on the hook if you haven't, you want to sign your name. you want to make sure your name is on every bank account, on the car, on the house. if you decide to split, you need to get credit on your own. if you are signing your name to things and your spouse is in charge of paying and they're not paying the bills, you're on the hook when the collection comes >> what's a good way to establish credit and you need to >> over time get a credit card in your name pay that bill every month if you can. get yourself financially educated >> yeah. >> i'm not asking anybody to be a tax expert but your financial health is so important, you have to address it and i want to say one more thing, talk to people about it talk to your girlfriends girlfriends talk to each other about the dirtiest, naughtiest, nastiest secrets but we don't talk about what's in our wallet. if we can't ask for help, this is our future, girls >> stephanie, preach thank you. coming up, jenna celebrates
