as primary elections move west, california's june primary could actually be in play especially for the republicans. >> and here to talk more about it is our political analyst, melissa cain. good morning. >> good morning. >> california may actually play a big role in the elections. what's different about this year? >> reporter: there's so many candidates. 2012 mitt romney had this thing in the bag by april. he had the delegates he needed. he was done. this year, with 3 candidates splitting the votes three ways, there doesn't appear to be a sort of person who is the front- runner who is going to render california irrelevant. the more discord there is between these three men, the more important california stays and becomes. >> it would be nice if our votes county for a change. they all cam here for monday. >> donald trump has been a freight train knocking everyone down. the lost in ohio to kasich, is that a big deal? >> maybe. just a few minutes ago, we learned that he is not going to
6:51 am
participate in the final republican debate that has been scheduled and so that may indicate a little dissatisfaction with what's happening right now. look, ohio did not kill the trump nomination by any means. it did throw cold water on it. he could still get the delegates he needs to win the nomination. no question. it won't be smooth sailing. he is heading into a slog of these smaller elections where ted cruz is actually poised to do well but it's not going to be an easy go from donald trump here on out. >> what's next for clinton and sanders? >> a lot of people trying to write bernie sanders off. he will stay in. he will win some elections. a couple of states look good for him. he needs to win big. with proportional delegates, you have to win by a large amount. he needs to win big in big states like new york and, of course, california. we may be in play for the
6:52 am
democrats too. >> let's go back to the republicans. donald trump is ahead of everybody. he could get into the convention with more delegates. they could say, you know, you're not our kind of guy and bring in, say, a speaker like paul ryan or anybody. >> that is true. they could -- if he has the majority of delegates, they could change the rules. if he doesn't have a majority, then we know that a lot of delegates can become inbound and vote for whoever they wish, as well. so even if it looks like it's in the bag, never never quite -- primaries are a party function. the party giveth and taketh away. >> thank you. it is 6:52. one of the nation's biggest transit systems totally shut down for an entire day. the reason behind the disruption coming your way. >> and we have new information on an early-morning shooting in berkeley. what we just learned next.
